When I’m feeling overwhelmed, A victim with no control, I need to get up, get out and shout, If only to hear myself roar.
We are experiencing, along with stern Father Time standing still, a preponderance of 3/4 squares. The 270º Square is considered a “crisis in consciousness.” Sun/Moon, Mercury/Saturn, Venus/Saturn, Jupiter/Neptune are all conspiring to make us all more conscious. At some point the question may arise, “Just how conscious do I wanna be?”It’s all about “growing up,” says Saturn. Part of that is the loss of innocence, which can include spontaneity, fun, play, joy, and fantasy/dreams. The “it’s all gonna be OK” can get drown out by “You are responsible for correcting the situation or it won’t be OK!”
While this is part of the evolutionary process, the truth is it may not be fun changing our ways, letting go of unconscious behavior patterns, and accepting the responsibility. At times like this it is also healthy to have patience with ourselves, accept that we are striving human beings and feel the loss of innocence and the grief, anger, and pain that may be involved. The North Node in Cancer says it’s OK to cry, scream and shout when our toys get taken away. Bottling up our feelings in order to grin and bear it can also have a negative impact in the present or down the road.
