Straighten your shoulders and deal.
It’s a time when you can solve the problems that you have.
29 years worth if you have lived that long.
Uranus, Pluto, Saturn, Mars.
That’s quite a show down.
Tremendous Violence is possible
and Intense Forced Growth.
Now. NOW. NOW.
Nobody gets to start over until the New Moon in Cancer on night of the 18th.
Instead what you have is dealing with yourself and with others.
If you need to change something:
To let go of
To endure and to triumph regardless, of well, everything
There is tremendous energy at your disposal.
Just don’t kill anybody.
Jupiter in Gemini is the saving grace = you are not alone.
The entire world is having this transit.
The Cardinal signs get it the most.
Aries, Libra, Capricorn, and Cancer.
Poor Cancer is getting creamed.
Getting Creamed and GROWING STRONGER THAN EVER. EVER.
Cardinal signs are the ones who change things,
and they are being changed.
If you are a Cardinal sign, what will you do with your super power?
I realize that you may have just been cut off at the knees,
let it fill your belly with fire.
Isn’t there a new way forward precisely because of the doors just slammed in your face?
It’s hard to see it but it’s there.
If you think of the Changers being changed, being tempered with fire,
that construct takes us to a whole NEW WORLD before it’s all over.
It’s not all over and we have at least three years of mayhem to go.
It’s not until the evening on the 18th that we will begin again, making goals and hopes and wishes for the future.
Now Now Now?
Just don’t punch anyone in the face
Control yourself and you will see tremendous progress.
There are huge forces at work.
“I have come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element. It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather. I possess tremendous power to make life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration, I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis is escalated or de-escalated, and a person is humanized or de-humanized. If we treat people as they are, we make them worse. If we treat people as they ought to be, we help them become what they are capable of becoming.”
– Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
This cut always reminds me to take it from the inside.
gotta come correct.
“The only reason that we don’t open our hearts and minds to other people is that they trigger confusion in us that we don’t feel brave enough or sane enough to deal with.
To the degree that we look clearly and compassionately at ourselves, we feel confident and fearless about looking into someone else’s eyes.
Then this experience of opening to the world begins to benefit ourselves and others simultaneously. The more we relate with others, the more quickly we discover where we are blocked, where we are unkind, afraid, shut down. Seeing this is helpful, but it is also painful. Often the only way we know how to react is to use it as ammunition against ourselves. We aren’t kind. We aren’t honest. We aren’t brave, and we might as well give up right now.
That’s the beginning of growing up. As long as we don’t want to be honest and kind with ourselves, then we are always going to be infants. When we begin just to try to accept ourselves, the ancient burden of self-importance lightens up considerably. Finally there’s room for genuine inquisitiveness, and we find we have an appetite for what’s out there.”
– Pema Chodron
Picasso is riding on a train and someone sits down next to him.
Recognizing who he is, the person asks,
“Why don’t you paint people the way they really are?”
Picasso asks, “What do you mean by the way they really are?”
The man eagerly pulls out his wallet and shows Picasso a picture of his wife
and says, “This is my wife.”
Picasso responds, “She looks rather small and flat, don’t you think?”
