The New Moon in Leo seems to arrive because we need it. If we can’t renew our lives now, we will have to throw out the whole world for being chaotic and disgusting.
The Saturn/Neptune square promised disillusionment and delivered.
Vitality, sympathy, patience, hope.
Let’s have some now.
Easy to be angry, and you are not wrong, but how will it help you?
I would be lying if I described the next three years as a much needed respite.
There is no way to prepare yourself, particularly when the earth may be melting beneath your feet.
Natural rules seem to be suspended and a sea red with the blood of innocents is about to boil.
::: coughs :::
I mean, we have certainly arrived at an unstable juncture that will not be quickly resolved.
So what then?
How to be radiant in a world delirious with nightmare and tedium?
When the banality of evil has risen once again,
Connect with yourself from the inside out.
Unafraid to make a mistake, but not in a hurry to make one either.
Mars arrives at Sagittarius & moves ahead. Faith in Action
Enjoy the Sun. Use your creative impulse, build what feeds you and those you love.
Say yes if your moment arrives! You may have to meet it halfway, or even further on, still worth it.
If you have no perspective, try to need none;
when you know that you don’t know, best to err in fairness.
Saturn trines the lunation, and Neptune makes an inconjunct.
Our mutable T-square increases: Mercury/Saturn/Neptune.
Is this about making dreams come true?!
It’s real! Is it real? It’s real!
It is actually real, but objectivity is a nonissue, we know that we don’t have it.
So what IS the it?!
You’ll find out, or create it!
Responsibility is rewarded.
Something could begin now, that lasts a very long time.
A series of steps, they seem to be stone, & participants whether aware or unknowing begin beneficial long term situations.
A chance with ramifications!
There is a wild surge of freedom, Mars in Sagittarius! A revolutionary spark that aims to conquer the very goals that have been dogging us. Frustration meets dedication. We might hear some good news! Good new that arrives as a challenge.
The new start is not an easy one, but it is impassioned.
Begin something you want to last, An aspect to Lilith suggests the outsider, the wildcard.
Don’t forget, it’s your life. Irreplaceable.
Nothing’s A Gift
Nothing’s a gift, it’s all on loan.
I’m drowning in debts up to my ears.
I’ll have to pay for myself
with my self,
give up my life for my life.
Here’s how it’s arranged:
The heart can be repossessed,
the liver, too,
and each single finger and toe.
Too late to tear up the terms,
my debts will be repaid,
and I’ll be fleeced,
or, more precisely, flayed.
I move about the planet
in a crush of other debtors.
Some are saddled with the burden
of paying off their wings.
Other must, willy-nilly,
account for every leaf.
Every tissue in us lies
on the debt side.
Not a tentacle or tendril
is for keeps.
The inventory, infinitely detailed,
implies we’ll be left
not just empty-handed
but handless, too.
I can’t remember
where, when, and why
I let someone open
this account in my name.
We call the protest against this
And it’s the only term
not included on the list.
—Wislawa Szymborska, from The End And The Beginning, 1993
