Can existential crises be met with material solutions, and if they can’t,
what are we so upset about?
If only there was something to blame.
Mercury conjunct Uranus trine Jupiter & square Pluto, violent mind.
Tie yourself in knots waiting for the future to arrive, waiting for whatever is true now, to be untrue.
It’s the complex untruths that strangle you.
Is it possible to be understood?
And if you were understood in what proportion would relief mix with devastation?
What do we know of being known?
How much misunderstanding has brought us how far?
Or held us back?
The moment has past, but there is residual anger and frustration.
Hurts of the past tripping people in the present.
It may be possible to think your way out
The Moon opposes Venus, the seeming impossibility of getting both what you want and what you need.
What would you have to give up to be satisfied?
Mars/Saturn less acute today, does that mean more hopeless?
Jupiter in LEO paused at 12 degrees, Scorpio Moon.
For Something Beautiful, read THIS
~There is an underbelly of terror to all life. It is suffering, it is hurt. Deep within all of us are intense fears that have left few of us whole. Life’s terrors haunt us, attack us, leave ugly scars. To buffer ourselves, we dwell on beauty, we collect things, we fall in love, we desperately try to make something lasting in our lives. We take beauty as the only worthwhile thing in this existence, but it cannot veil cursing, violence, randomness, and injustice.
That is why spiritual progress is slow: not because no one will tell us the secrets, but because we ourselves must overcome sentiment and fear before we can grasp it.~
