New Moon Eclipse in Gemini June 10, 2021

Please please please stop everything and go check out painter Khari Turner.

New Moon Eclipse in Gemini June 10, 2021

What kind of beginning is it? Conflicted. Magical. A Return.
Painful, Beautiful, Potent and Strong.

Gemini wants to know.

Isn’t that the main thing with Gemini? To find out… to turn over the other side of the coin, take a look at the flipside?

In Gemini we play, we compose, and importantly we explore. Can we not leave every question unasked? Is that it?

Can we move ahead without looking behind, oh I don’t think so! Not today, not this time. We want to try it… whatever it is, and we won’t, we can’t go on without learning more.

Do you remember when our year of the Metal Ox began in February, and we had both a Mercury retrograde and a New Moon in the Air sign of Aquarius?

Here we are again almost as if astrology were a spiral?!

This October, October 6, 2021, we will have another Air sign New Moon, in, you guessed it, Libra! Where the Sun, Moon, Mars and a retrograde Mercury, (in tight aspect to Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, Chiron and Uranus), join forces to tell us we are moving ahead, definitively, in ways both painful, hopeful, & UNSURE.

All year we look backward, sideways, and work with what we imagine might become possible. It’s messy, and I can only suppose we need it messy.

What do you think? It’s quite a year!

What I said in February was the following:

– We are cultivating more powerful problems. A surprise is guaranteed. There is a kiss, and a dream, or a lie, a chance to go back and fix an old storyline. This is where we begin to correct our mistakes, which as you know, sometimes involves making more of them.

The future is shaping itself strangely, into absolutely fresh configurations, and as it happens, as you move ahead with plans and choices, your beginnings may emerge under blurry impressions, almost a shadow or storm that could be described as an inadequate or misleading series of truths, and yet, and yet, and yet… there are truths, these are truths here, aren’t they? This time can be used almost as though fixing a dropped stitch in the fabric of creation.

So now for our Gemini Eclipse, will the same themes appear? It depends on what you have done already, but you could say so!

Cultivating more powerful problems,
(you’ll hear that from me again)

What could it mean?
Something, some series of experiences that attempt to tie our experience of reality to our understanding of it.

Zbigniew Herbert writes:

I would like to describe the simplest emotion
joy or sadness
but not as others do
reaching for shafts of rain or sun

I would like to describe a light
which is being born in me
but I know it does not resemble
any star
for it is not so bright
not so pure
and is uncertain

I would like to describe courage
without dragging behind me a dusty lion
and also anxiety
without shaking a glass full of water

to put it another way
I would give all metaphors
in return for one word
drawn out of my breast like a rib
for one word
contained within the boundaries
of my skin

but apparently this is not possible

and just to say — I love
I run around like mad
picking up handfuls of birds
and my tenderness
which after all is not made of water
asks the water for a face

and anger
different from fire
borrows from it
a loquacious tongue

so is blurred
so is blurred
in me
what white-haired gentleman
separated once and for all
and said
this is the subject
this is the object

we fall asleep
with one hand under our head
and with the other in a mound of planets

our feet abandon us
and taste the earth
with their tiny roots
which next morning
we tear out painfully

So entwined. Another big beginning.

Our Messenger journeys back to 16 degrees, where once upon a time, on May 22, an idea about balance, about structure, about memory took shape.

It seems we need another look there, what has changed? What is it we want to make sure to say? To know… to understand? Is there something that was left out of the equation? A connection? We include it now, and in the days to come. A rescue mission, or an exploratory venture.

A New Moon at 19 Gemini, with Mercury retrograde at 20, a multifaceted beginning, an Eclipse.

Amass the elements… any shiny detail may be of use at any point… a fragment, or a simple choice, an emotional impulse turns now to be a key, unlocking the doors, illuminating the structure of our puzzles and therefore a doorway itself?

A key which is a door? Does that sound like a young adult fantasy novel? That’s where we are with Gemini; eternal teenagers opening magic doors, by way of a beginning with something we remember… a feeling.

Jupiter in Pisces believes not only in the impossible, but the imperfectly true, the wish… the wondering… it’s the part of the story where we wander down the hallway we’ve been told to forget, and open the door with a somewhat hidden lock… Longing could be part of it… or uncovering what we realize was discarded too soon… our emotions are a driver here… something is missing where can we find…

What will we find?

Gemini doesn’t tell us, Gemini is the question, but as I can see the answers, I’ll tell you part of it; Simple, we find a missing piece of the structure of our future. We can’t move ahead without it. Go back.

As we look, I’d like to suggest that we are looking for the story underneath the story… Or perhaps it’s the shape of the story if you were to see it from far away, from above, or… more like the story we breathe in as we close our eyes … The story our mind makes when something opens to us, a vista, or a vision, a memory. We remember.

And as we do, we dream ahead into what is possible with what we go back now to collect… I suppose the key finds the door if you keep looking Cinderella style, but it will be easier if you let it happen like taming a wild creature.

Hold out your hand with enticements on offer, but there is no panic here, no frantic search.. you open your mind to your own visions, your own intuitions, you let it come to you, and then the freeze frame is over, and a blurry commingling begins, we start somewhere… here I guess.

I’d like to read to you 4 bits of writing from the man who may be my favorite author, he’s one of the best, anyway… Roberto Bolaño. Roberto writes:

1 -That’s what art is, he said, the story of a life in all its particularity. It’s the only thing that really is particular and personal. It’s the expression and, at the same time, the fabric of the particular. And what do you mean by the fabric of the particular? I asked, supposing he would answer: Art. I was also thinking, indulgently, that we were pretty drunk already and that it was time to go home. But my friend said: What I mean is the secret story. . . . The secret story is the one we’ll never know, although we’re living it from day to day, thinking we’re alive, thinking we’ve got it all under control and the stuff we overlook doesn’t matter. But every damn thing matters! It’s just that we don’t realize. We tell ourselves that art runs on one track and life, our lives, on another, we don’t even realize that’s a lie.-

2 -You have to know how to look even if you don’t know what you’re looking for.-

3 -The world is alive and no living thing has any remedy. That is our fortune.-

&

4 -…the borders he respected were the borders of dreams, the misty borders of love and indifference, the borders of courage and fear, the golden borders of ethics.-

De La Soul has a song, Royalty Capes where poet Gina Loring intones “The sky takes notes when we speak.”

Could that be true? Could that be happening? Could we be collaborating with reality, Jupiter in Pisces style?
I think so…

I’ll leave you with Rebecca Solnit’s writing:

– Everyone is interdependent. Everyone is vulnerable. Everyone is penetrable, and everyone is penetrated incessantly by the vibrations of sound traveling into the inner ear, by the light shining in our eyes and on the surface of our bodies, by the air we must never stop breathing, by the food and water we take in, by the contacts that generate sensations that run from the surface of our skin to our brains, by the pheromones and bacteria we transmit imperceptibly to each other by air and contact, by the smells that are tiny particles we have inhaled, by the myriad species of beneficial bacteria in our gut and elsewhere that constitute so vast a portion of a human body that self is something of a misnomer or at least a crowd and maybe a party.

It’s fun to think about that, to consider being a conglomeration, a happening.

Happening now, together, inseparable from the limitless power of creation. Creating endlessly, participating worlessly, as everything happens around, and above, and throughout, and within you. I’m so glad you are listening, I’m so happy you are alive and breathing, here with us.


Love YOU!!!

Sagittarius Full Moon Eclipse May 26th 2021


*

The incomparable Lorraine O’Grady writes:

The one advantage art has over other methods of knowledge, and the reason I engage in it rather than some other activity for which my training and intelligence might be suited, is that, except for the theoretical sciences, it is the primary discipline where an exercise of calculated risk can regularly turn up what you had not been looking for. –

I’m going to tell you a secret. Are you ready? Ok: 2021 is a more confusing year than 2020. You may have already suspected this… anyway it’s true.

The old story ends, though you may not launch the new one yet. Soon tho, actually, quite soon.

Let me tell you a story… The time between Eclipses is plastic, is malleable, contains small portals that open to large experiences and hidden dimensions that show us terrain as yet unknown… there is something here to explore. Welcome in.

Look around inside your story… this one, the story you are in… My story which I have always told to myself, unknowing. Your story, that your breath repeats as you sleep and dream…

Let’s imagine something changes now. It’s BIG.

A deviation, an alternate timeline about to intersect with yours, about to become yours.

A way to shift not exactly, or not only the plot, but something deeper. Your drives and motivations, your desires and your view of what is possible.

Neptune guides our actions, and challenges our hearts and minds. Are we sure? Well, no. No, we are not sure, and we may not be sure for a long time.

Something ends on May 26th, and just as we begin to understand that, as early as May 29th we begin to wonder if or how we ought to change our minds. Something has finished, though you can’t yet sweep it away completely, or dispose of the body. It has to do with what you believe.

And can I just tell you of the Eclipse after this one, our New Moon in Gemini on June 10th which marks out a beautiful confusion, a play which only faith can master, or take the measure of ?

I don’t know if it will endear me to you, but there isn’t a right answer, and we don’t settle our questions for a long minute, and that minute stretches out into nearly a whole summer.

Once we get our minds right near the end of June, our belief begins to waver, and so it goes until the end of July where we find ourselves back with puzzles we may have abandoned and now we are carrying ever so many more pieces to place… waves of questions this summer.

Entanglements, illusions, reunions, important connections. Real lasting changes, some actual violence and shocks that serve to sharpen your mind.

Is that right? I couldn’t tell you, not exactly or not like this anyway…

This is a time to find your own clarity from listening… from what is unfolding within yourself and all around you.

I’ll give you that astrologer jive: As Above, So Below.

As you listen, tell yourself – More than one answer, more than one level, more than one purpose. – That’s a mantra.

This summer’s pattern is more intricate than is usual. Look for the places that catch your heart like rough fabric drawn across soft skin, feel where you are being moved, and look there for the clues.

Ben Okri writes:

– In a fractured age, when cynicism is god, here is a possible heresy: we live by stories, we also live in them. One way or another we are living the stories planted in us early or along the way, or we are also living the stories we planted— knowingly or unknowingly—in ourselves. We live stories that either give our lives meaning or negate it with meaninglessness. If we change the stories we live by, quite possibly we change our lives.-

Why have we all come here, to this tangle of dreams, this intersection made of what… what would you call it? Evidence of things not seen?

2021 is almost a vision quest, or a rorschach test, it’s a pitch perfect bell that shows you none of these surrounding sounds are simple and they don’t really ring clear, it’s you finding your way in the woods or an unfamiliar city. You are going to stumble, and since you don’t know the landmarks you will have to look for something else. Close your eyes and listen. Follow what is calling you. It will be new.

I’m so glad you are here, let’s take a moment and just breathe together. I’m so glad you have arrived here, where everything is always in motion.

In every conceivable imagining you are alive in a living universe. There are no meaningful separations between your molecules and the molecules that surround you.

I’m so glad you are alive and breathing, here with us.

Love YOU!!!

A Few Words About Jupiter in Pisces and Our Saturn Retrograde:

JUPITER IN PISCES

Jupiter is already in Pisces, can you feel it? How did you cope with that first wave of emotion?

2021 and 2022 will see Jupiter in Pisces come and go 3 times. For each pass we are tasked with opening ourselves, opening ourselves to the best possible outcomes.

The times when Jupiter moves back to Aquarius, that’s when we work on the structure, The how of it, the fairness, the vision, a break from the past, an actual method for our growth.

While in Pisces, Jupiter works with connections, while in Aquarius he works with separations.

We alternate modalities to be able to bring our heart with us. We need soul and sweetness in our vision of the future. We need it to not be sterile or clinical but instead living, mysterious, deep. Let Pisces work on you. It’s why we are here now.

Jupiter in Pisces suggests that magic, a bewildering force, a force that be-wilds you it’s not out of the question… no really.

How wide is the window in your heart for inexplicable emotions? Can some of those blow in?

Where are your permissions located?
Is there a release valve?

Can you open yourself and feel both the sweetness of what is possible, and the endless wounds that have no name?

Can you allow yourself all of your feelings, even the ones you don’t like or don’t want to be seen to have, even by yourself?

Compassion, acceptance, grace, faith, generosity: don’t just ask, offer.

On the last podcast, I spoke about a nonlinear journey, we are on it. We are in it.

It is us.

It’s worth noting too, that Jupiter’s time in Pisces is brief:

May 13, 2021, to July 28, 2021,
December 28, 2021, to May 10, 2022,
&
October 28 to December 20, 2022.
That’s it!

SATURN RETROGRADE IN AQUARIUS

Saturn goes back May 22 at 13 degrees Aquarius, establishing that our debts, or obligations remain. We may not settle them now. Oddly even as Saturn retrogrades, he somehow gives a nod to the future, to balance and love, to the hope that it may be possible to find enough peace, understanding, justice: whatever you need.

Saturn implies that there will be solutions, that it’s worth your work, and your time, tho even as you do it, now through October 10th, the hold of your problem doesn’t fully release. You chip at it, That’s alright.

*

Some tension may abate, but the deeper solutions do not fully progress now… we still have repairs to make. It will be October 10th when the hands of time really start to mark out these changes for good and all. When that time comes, we will pick up our packs and begin to gain territory, put the stone on the grave, or fully feel that hammer come down.

Until then we re-cover, re-make, refine, redesign our commitments taking a journey back to whatever concerns Saturn marked out in the middle of January at 6 degrees.

PLUS, whatever reveals itself on May 22, take note. We will come back to this.

A clean break? I don’t think so.

And yet, we are not NOW where we were! Not at all.

Jupiter and Saturn, the Gods who demarcate the expansion and contraction of our lives have some complicated dance steps for us.

Think of these months as a time where we make sure nothing is left out of our vision.

We must include deep compassion in our methodology, we must go slow enough to build a alliances that last. Don’t think about protection, think rather about building strength.

All summer peculiar elements are added to the mixture. And this mix is a rich potion, and we will all be more wealthy when and where we are all able to swallow. It’s medicine. Drink up.

Love YOU!!!

Saturn in Aquarius: Astro-Talks with Satori!

As Saturn Stations Retrograde at 13 degrees Aquarius, it’s worth considering how these elements are at play in your life. Satori and I had this convo on December 17th 2020.

 

Since then, SO MUCH HAS HAPPENED!

We are inside the experiment now!

Something I would have LOVED to have mentioned in this video is that Saturn in Aquarius will mess with technology.

Of course it will! It will slow down and collapse the old technology, even as Jupiter in Aquarius comes up with new technology! Systems hacked? CHECK.

So just as the old, started by one man (I’m looking at you Mark Zuckerberg) tech monopolies are being broken up, NEW more egalitarian, or group based tech will take it’s place.

Will they be idealistic? YES. Will those ideals be good? Who knows!

Pluto in Capricorn will keep stretching Capitalism to extremes until it breaks or is fundamentally useless, a la the journalism effect when we had Pluto in Sagittarius. So deep Capricorn motivations continue to be unearthed until 2024. And after 2024 we collect the bodies. (kidding/not kidding)

Saturn in Aquarius may ask us to go it alone, or it may bring an unexpected partner, what we know, is that you will be asked to take your individuality seriously.

With Saturn involved the word is CONSEQUENCES. Consequences regarding your individualistic choices & by the same token, your individual experimental RESULTS. Opportunities, as Saturn is joined on December 19th by Jupiter, the next thing you know: Open doors.

For now, we anticipate the unexpected.

Love YOU!!!

New Moon in Taurus May 11, 2021

We gather sweetness while we can. We need it. Our summer promises some beautiful beginnings, and so many adjustments.

Over and over, in June, July, and August, we will be asked to reassess, to try to understand viscerally, to follow a pattern cerebrally without coldness or calculation… (oh it’s taxing! And possible… we will do it all!)…

We will extend the benefit of the doubt, without compromising our values. We will attempt to release our need to control others, our need to control the outcome… oh… It’s a summer rich with lessons, AND I dare say none of us are aching to be educated at the moment.

Especially not now, after a long winter, not only of deprivation, but of hard choices and humbling realizations, along with a continual reorientation, which epitomizes the Saturn/Uranus square and which we do not abandon.

Dr. Joe Dispenza writes:- The body does not know the difference between an experience and a thought; you can literally change your biology, neuro-circuitry, chemistry, hormones, and genes, simply by having an inner event.-

Therefore, thank God, or nature, thank the universe, right now, thank you, for the first few weeks of May, and this New Moon.

Our New Moon at 21 Taurus only asks us to begin, deliberately, definitively, with a light heart and a quick wit. With the embrace of pleasure for its own sake, and perhaps a bold move because now, you find, it really is time.

All the moments have added up, tipped the sand, and ticked the clock.

We are ready, as ready as we can be, and it won’t be dragons we meet, not at first anyway, our summer saves that for later on.

There will be pleasures in the time to come. Jupiter moving to Pisces on May 14th makes sure of it. As confusing as the Mercury/Neptune squares and retrogrades of later May will turn out to be,here for a moment, we have something else, something we have not seen in a long time.

Compassion, connection, a wish or a wonder that might masquerade as magic… a non-linear journey that opens the doors to softer emotions.

We stop thinking long term for a moment, stop imagining what we will get out of this, or that. We can set down our gawd-awful betterment ethics, and have a glass of wine that is not about the pleasure of sin either.

Do you remember being young enough to answer a question with the word -because- and have it stand for yourself and your own thinking, as an answer?

Because I want to… somehow in May, the mystery extends and the satisfaction of – because- doesn’t stop your curiosity…you keep it, you have it! With Mercury in aspect to Jupiter, we are absolutely curious!

The butterflies we become for a week or two, fly and float, they do not need to land for more than a moment, what they seek is nectar. Simple.

In discussing an Aboriginal concept of time, Tyson Yunkaporta writes,- This will be a challenge because English inevitably places settler worldviews at the center of every concept, obscuring true understanding.For example, explaining Aboriginal notions of time is an exercise in futility as you can only describe it as “nonlinear” in English,which immediately slams a big line right across your synapses.You don’t register the “non”—only the “linear”: that is the way you process that word, the shape it takes in your mind. Worst of all, it’s only describing the concept by saying what it is not, rather than what it is. We don’t have a word for nonlinear in our languages because nobody would consider traveling, thinking, or talking in a straight line in the first place. The winding path is just how a path is, and therefore it needs no name.One man tried going in a straight line many thousands of years ago and was called wamba (crazy) and punished by being thrown up into the sky.This is a very old story, one of many stories that tell us how we must travel and think in free-ranging patterns, warning us against charging ahead in crazy ways.-

Stay Open, stay open. Stay Open and begin practically, no matter how you end up. Begin by satisfying your body, sleep, food, sensuality, sex, even the pleasure of work, done because you love to. Because why not do a good job.

We have come so far and lived through so much.

There is a beautiful poem I want to read to you by Yehuda Amichai called Wildpeace listen:

Wildpeace

Not the peace of a cease-fire
not even the vision of the wolf and the lamb,
but rather as in the heart when the excitement is over
and you can talk only about a great weariness.
I know that I know how to kill, that makes me an adult.
And my son plays with a toy gun that knows how to open and close its eyes and say Mama.
A peace
without the big noise of beating swords into ploughshares,
without words, without
the thud of the heavy rubber stamp: let it be
light, floating, like lazy white foam.
A little rest for the wounds – who speaks of healing?
(And the howl of the orphans is passed from one generation
to the next, as in a relay race:the baton never falls.)
Let it come
like wildflowers,
suddenly, because the field
must have it: wildpeace.

Let’s breathe together now. Just being here where we are. Let’s gather strength and sweetness.
Let it in. You need it.

Perhaps this time to come will appear as a tiny adventure, perhaps for a deep moment, not everything is rewards and punishment,( that will be back soon enough,) but for now, perhaps, we open the door to Perhaps.

There are no meaningful separations between the molecules vibrating within your body and the molecules vibrating around you. In every conceivable way you are alive in a living world.

I’m so glad you are here, listening and breathing, with us.


Love YOU!!!

Simple ‘Scopes and a Podcast: Full Moon in Scorpio April 26, 2021

Aries

Is somebody threatening your money, your security, your safety? What’s yours is yours, as people are about to find out. Your position is very strong. Where you are being challenged, you have strength.

Taurus

Who says you can’t change? You know how to do it: under duress and with skilled negotiations as needed. Try, here and there to please yourself.

Gemini

Watch out for health issues as an unexpressed emotional release valve or diagnosis. If you need to escape, dream it before you do it. Plan it in your mind and on paper, you have support.

Crab

Work out the kinks and keep your temper. Or at least don’t let them see you lose it. Tell yourself over and over: when in doubt, check to see if you’ve done your part, after that, let it go.

LION

You are the star, and you do get the largest slice of pie, but then they just stand there and watch you eat it… Who said anything about comfortable. Accountability baby, it comes with the territory.

Virgo

If you can dream it, you can do it. Have the conversation, try to allow yourself some feelings you can’t put in a box.

Libra

No weapons formed against you shall prosper. Unless they have the law on their side. Get yourself straight, and you will be good. You are ethereally rich if, and this is a real if, you have the moral or legal high ground. If not, make way, make room, things change.

Scorpio

You’d like it better if everyone wasn’t looking at you. Let’s pretend they are not. Ask yourself about that person you see in the mirror, and the one sitting across from you at the table, what do they have that you need?

Sagittarius

In what ways have you changed your views on money over the last 2 years? You’re pretty busy right now, or you are about to be, and as the next page gets turned, the next song cues up on your jukebox, don’t forget to dance.

Capricorn

Whether or not it’s good for you, it’s good for you. You are loved and it shows. Think of it as long term investing. If you need someone to prove it, they will.

Aquarius

Party at your house, or ummmm something. What would mom and dad think, your inner mom and dad, of the goings on? A provocative expression of inner wealth? Tell yourself things that make you feel good. Why not?

Pisces

Siblings, neighbors, writing projects, and the urge to get the heck out of town! How do you balance it? Creatively. Do what makes you feel alive.


Love YOU!!!

Full Moon in Scorpio, April 26th, 2021

We will feel this one coming from very far away… even now. Along with all the feels, expect breakdowns and tech glitches. To think about the time we are in, read THIS

Break thru and scale back. The Full Moon is a big reveal.

The organic shape that love makes is not without complications. What is seduction after all, but the lure of the hidden, the promise of the partially revealed.

Full Moons bring to light what has been implied but not spoken, unseen, and now for this one the weight is with Taurus: Taurus Sun, Taurus Mercury conjunct Venus, and Uranus.

The tipping point between what we possess, and what we desire… Do you have to give something up to get your needs met? Can you bring your feelings into the open?

The natural shape of beauty will emerge as its own asset, to assert its own value unhindered. Saturn slows here but does not stop.

It’s something of a revelation. Some pressure to be good, to be real, to speak your heart, and own your values.

Taurus is not only fertile ground, she is beauty, the flower, not pure, instead, full of desire, about to be pregnant with summer’s riches and luxuriant for her own sake.

Taurus wants to be wanted, Scorpio Moon can take care of that for her.

Conception is by nature impure. One thing enters another, altering what it is, and what it is capable of.

Growth is not linear, it’s orgasmic.

Trauma stunts growth (we say,) and IT DOES, but doesn’t it also propel you?

Consume you?

A Catalyst, a catapult even, the place you make a choice, or refuse one. Have one made for you.

If you put the baby in the bathwater, does she ever really come out again?
That’s how baptism works, washed once, you can’t unbless.

The embrace in the sky we witness is late night creation magic. It’s the marriage bed of Taurus and Scorpio, what we possess as ourselves, and what we come to possess together.

The intangibles are highlighted and perhaps messy. Sometimes with Scorpio (at least emotionally, there are three or more people in the bed.) Again, the intangibles, the air is thick with them! Here too, the surprises!

Pluto stations retrograde, the vibe is immense. Think of it as a mile marker. We have come (plutonically) this far, and now we make camp. Set up our tent and explore the territory.

Our lunation is a map of the terrain. Here. Here is where we have journeyed to. Here is a place we will spend some time.

– Where ?- you might say

Some of us will have left home in some way, or be prepared, or preparing to give up the known for the unknown, because we see necessity in our revelation.

What you need, may or may not give you what you want, at least now you know, and can speak.

As human conception happens, there is actually a tiny electrical spark. Scientists have photographed this, god knows how, but you can find the images if you look. We are born of a tiny fire, an alchemical light which flares combining what has been, with what will be. Flower, Fruit, Fruition. Aren’t you the best of your parents, the worst?

There is no purity now, nor was there ever. Extremes set the place for compromise, for you, who one way or another, must live out the life that sparks between need and desire.

Plenty of pressure on this Full Moon and as close as we’ve come to clarity in a hot minute.

Knowing what you know now, feeling how you feel now, be generous, to yourself, to others, to the swirl of complications that will later be described as circumstance.

It’s a good day to be born if you are a revelation. That’s our Full Moon.

As we breathe in now, we can feel our breath sustaining us. It just happens, the air enters our body and becomes our body. You are very much alive and every bit of you is in motion. There are no meaningful separations between the molecules that surround you and the molecules that describe you. We are all alive together. I’m so glad you are here alive and breathing with us.


Love YOU!!!

A simple message shows up from Pluto today:

LET THINGS DIE

What grows is strong, SO STRONG and you can never, no not ever bring the dead to life.
Can you continue to use the old energy to help you grow?

OH YES.

New Moon in Aries April 11, 2012 Simple ‘Scopes and a Podcast

Aries

You have the Power. Isn’t that nice to hear? I’ll say it again. YOU HAVE THE POWER. You have the power in this situation, and what you can do here, in the immortal words of Lyn Collins is “Use what you got, to get what you want.” there is a catch, and she does point it out. You’d better THINK

Taurus

This really isn’t your favorite type of weather. God, the multiverse, even your previous good deeds and kind acts, they are all looking out for you. You’ll see how before too long. Let yourself have that ethereal embrace. What’s hidden will be brought to light before April is over.

Gemini

Don’t hold your breath, let it come to you. You may be very busy, and a gift is yours to receive. Accept it. Getting your way is not the burden it might seem.

Crab

Unsteady doesn’t mean disabled, and don’t you let it mean dysfunctional! Return yourself to yourself. You are needed, so gather yourself in. If you are a home to yourself, you can be a light in the sky.

LION

Is it GO TIME? Well is it??! Is it time for far flung beginnings? Go ahead and realize everything you know. That will help. You need your intuition for this one too. It’s not a matter of logic, instead, it’s one of ethics and action.

Virgo

The vaults are practically bursting at the seams. Such riches!! That’s a lot of intimate action for one little Virgo. Value what you have been given. Open up. Accept and respect the depth.

Libra

My my my my my… you do seem to be outgunned. The offer is not one of violence but rather a truce if you can accept it. Look at what begins under this sky. It’s not something you have seen before.

Scorpio

You certainly look busy!! So busy! Between the new work/new home deep renovation of your work life balance, and all the tasks that come to mind, it seems what you might need is some mind/body connection. Sex if possible, if not whatever comes closest. Don’t spend money you don’t have.

Sagittarius

Could it be party time?! I mean… could we work that in? Is art possible? Play time? Pleasure? It’s a reboot. Don’t pretend it’s not. Use every bit of the joy you find. You are not bad, and you do deserve it. Clarity is overrated.

Capricorn

You are world building, and it’s been a minute since we could say anything like that. It’s not only the old tear down company tricks and consequences…. Use what comes to you now, to build a world. Make it. A new home, a better mousetrap. Overthinking and detailed analysis is not allowed.

Aquarius

Have you just had a genius idea?? Or a new understanding? A new way with your siblings or surroundings? You don’t have to know if you WILL use it yet, or HOW you will use it. Ok come on you are going to use it somehow. This is pretty great.

Pisces

Let’s breathe life into your harmony. Let’s send cash to your bank. Let’s have everyone recognize just how good you really are. Let’s have that everyone include you. You don’t have to do anything yet. You can just HAVE this. and then if you DO have to do something, stay flexible… keep listening.


Love YOU!!!

New Moon in Aries April 11, 2021 & A Bit About the Year We Are In.

Brecht sez:

“To those who do not know that the world is on fire, I have nothing to say.”

Compulsive, powerful, karmic, difficult. Promises will be made. Promises will be made with every intention of keeping them. It’s not clear if we do the right thing… but I do think we try.

It may take a bit of a struggle to tune into what that looks like, push past ghosts and false feelings into our deep luck, our right mind. One could make a fairly large blunder here in terms of what should be done… or do the right thing with no grace at all. Nothing here looks like a permanent tragedy tho. We are in motion, we are making a way to move.

The obvious next steps are a bit clumsy but the feeling is there. It’s genuine.

Gather yourself together. The rest of the year is hard. Honestly.

Not hard every minute of every hour of every day, but hard. It’s not been easy, and the overall feeling now, is to ask reality to cut us a break. One way or another way… it just doesn’t do that.

So that’s news. Let’s take a moment to let that one in. Everything does not straighten out and fly right. Not for all of 2021. I mean… there are moments better than other moments, certainly.

and yet… I think it’s important to establish here that this is a year of conflict, of challenge.

Let’s look at it, now that we really are in it. Aries season.

The zodiac has begun one more time. What does it do? What do we do?

Are we fighting? Are we loving?
Experimenting?

What in the wide world of desperation and random happenstance is supposed to, is going to, maybe could possibly ummmmmm… happen?

With so much Aquarian energy, it’s easier to say what won’t happen! Aquarius is the rebel, defiant, a subtraction, lightning, a surprise.

What won’t happen?

You won’t be able to move in a sequential straight line without a lot of conflict.

Leaps ahead? Check. Sudden reversals? Check.
Absolutely Shocking surprises?

Oh you know it baby.

We even get a little magic over the summer as Jupiter enters Pisces and grants some watery wishes, but most of the time… I said MOST OF THE TIME, we have to fight for it, surrender, cope, pray, and work.

Actually just do the work. Network too.. It’s not a year to be so isolated as we have been… but in a way… in a very sharp and cutting way, we are all on our own.

Aquarius style.

So what about this beginning then? What about our New Moon at 22 degrees Aries?

Mercury at 14 degrees Aries hovers near Chiron at 9. Venus at 26 degrees Aries blesses us with a sextile from an Aquarian Jupiter at 25. We are able to feel what we desire now, and we may even be able to say it.

Saturn slows but does not stop the conversation, a sextile to Mars in Gemini encourages direct action. Maybe a couple of direct actions… a confusion of direct actions like a murder of crows. Pluto does square that Venus and what comes to mind is the idea of not being provoked.

Actually what comes to mind is being provoked.

Being provoked and using that provocation to tell you something about your hotspots, rather than letting yourself be drawn into situations that you know are not what you want.

Respond, don’t react.
Give yourself time to breathe and sit, with whatever is happening for you.

As you take a moment, allow some inner acumen to tell you the difference between what’s deep, compelling, sexy, or enjoyably taboo, and what may be manipulative, selfish, and all lizard brain, no compassion.

Mars does square Neptune here; if you are not quite sure what to do, write about it, sing about it, listen to music, go for a walk, take a bath, a swim, get out your tarot cards, consult an astrologer…

Your confusion as to the next steps may be a catalyst, and that catalyst may be needed to get you where you want to go.

Here is one from Michael Barata:

– Don’t move like you are chasing or being chased. Move like you are caught in the most beautiful moment, which is right now.-

There is nothing more Aries than the concept of -right now-

Right now, let’s take a breath together. Let’s be here, where we actually are.

In whatever space these words find you, that’s the right space to be.

There are no meaningful separations between your molecules and the molecules that surround you. As breath enters your body, it becomes you and what sustains you. Over and over.

I’m so glad you are alive and breathing, here with us.

Love YOU!!!
