Out in the open. Right out where everyone can see it. Push has in fact come to shove. Conflict rich. Libra competes or compares.
Although the conflict, the contract, the ALLIANCE is public, there are more than a few unfinished machinations behind the scenes. Libra would like to begin with a new balance of power. Expert negotiations ? YES PLEASE
Some people would like to know ahead of time if all of these difficulties are going to be worth it? What do you think we should tell them?
Think of yourself as a composer. Do something with how you feel.
Critic Karol Irzykowski said – Anything can be lived through to the end, nothing can be thought through to the end.-
The sky organizes itself a little bit, and there may be a sort of confession or surprise message.
A destiny element takes shape.
The inevitability quotient is massive now, what can’t be avoided must become the plot. Not only in bad ways!
Are you building new structural relationships in the hopes that they will carry you into the future?
Are you reconfiguring your entanglements? Is it time to change something about who you owe and how you pay them, who you care for, who cares for you? Is it time to change something about who you trust?
Are you beginning a new sort of relationship? With your world, your life?
Our New Moon in Libra features a Grand Trine in Earth. 6 planets coordinate.
What could they be up to?
The best use of your energy centers around that amplified Venus in Virgo
We arrange the anatomy. Actual chess moves. The frustration level is high. Place your pieces with care.
What we see is our circumstance. Or maybe we see some of it?
Where are you going?
The truth of it is, you can’t see that bit yet.
You can see where you WANT to go, what you want to be true.
But that’s not the same thing, is it?
Geoffrey DeGraff wrote
– Samsara literally means “wandering-on.” Many people think of it as the Buddhist name for the place where we currently live. But in the early Buddhist texts, it’s the answer, not to the question, “Where are we?” but to the question, “What are we doing?” Instead of a place, it’s a process: the tendency to keep creating worlds and then moving into them. As one world falls apart, you create another one and go there. At the same time, you bump into other people who are creating their own worlds, too.
The process can sometimes be enjoyable. In fact, it would be perfectly innocuous if it didn’t entail so much suffering. The worlds we create keep caving in and killing us. Moving into a new world requires effort: not only the pains and risks of taking birth, but also the hard knocks – mental and physical – that come from going through childhood into adulthood, over and over again.- —
What we start now is in relationship to what has already been. What we start now, we start compelled by fear and opportunity in equal measure. What we start now, has love at it’s worried little heart.
We would like to be doing the right thing.
Here is one from filmmaker -David Lynch:
-I don’t think that people accept the fact that life doesn’t make sense. I think it makes people terribly uncomfortable. It seems like religion and myth were invented against that, trying to make sense out of it. –
And that’s an interesting thought for someone like Lynch who makes art which describes and organizes experience.
Our experience of the New Moon in Libra is going to speak for itself. Also you might dredge up something to say.
Mercury goes back. She wants to open that delicious looking can of worms.
Should you watch your mouth? Sure, watch it. Words these days are very sharp. Don’t cut at random. Dotted lines only.
Do speak up though. Doing something is going to be infinitely superior to trying to hold this energy. Make a conscious choice. You probably have some pretty strong feelings. Now is a chance to set your intention, to use them for good.
Whatever the negotiation, try, if you are at all able, to keep an ultimatum free zone.
-Terror is as much a part of the concept of truth as runniness is of the concept of jam. We wouldn’t like jam if it didn’t, by its very nature, ooze. We wouldn’t like truth if it wasn’t sticky, if, from time to time, it didn’t ooze blood.- Jean Baudrillard said that, and I’ll say it too.
To keep your balance, do what is practical.
We have had a lot of quotes this time, I’ll add one more
Italo Calvino writes:
-A person’s life consists of a collection of events, the last of which could also change the meaning of the whole, not because it counts more than the previous ones but because once they are included in a life, events are arranged in an order that is not chronological but, rather, corresponds to an inner architecture.-
Can you take a breath now?
Can you take a moment to remember how very inseparable we are? Very, very close and with room for everyone, for the microcosm of the worlds inside your body, all your cells, busy, moving, alive, the tiny things, blades of grass and the ants who populate that territory, these planets that we talk about, it’s fun to remember that they are actually physically massive and spinning in space.
Everything in motion, inexplicably linked and alive. Let’s take another breath, as precarious as it all is, it’s still so good to feel the air come in and out of our bodies. I’m so glad you are alive and breathing here with us.
