The path to inner serenity, Requires that I be, Resolving karmic relationships, Into peaceful harmony.
Transiting Mars squares the Moon’s nodes all week in Libra. Yup, it’s all about working it out, pleasant or unpleasant, easy or hard, it’s time to sit down at the negotiation table and iron out a deal. This is with love, business, or associations. Squaring the Nodes puts a stronger emphasis on it as a necessity more than an option. It has a bit of the “or else” that we could put at the end of it.
Preferring not to go into the “or else,” we can focus more on the positive outcome of truly coming home to ourselves, getting to that North Node in Cancer, feeling connected, nourished, fed, and whole. Out of the storm and into the safe harbor of belonging. It’s worth the effort to get out of the competition, battle, power games, and take off the masks to make an authentic connection.
The true measure of power, Is not money, fame, or sex, But the capacity to see and know, And do exactly what is best.
Could be getting pretty gnarly here for the rest of the month the way these transits are playing out folks. Like I say in the report, after these Sun squares we’ve got Mars squares. And it’s coming on now, especially as the Moon enters Aries (the warrior) and comes full on! Yikes! Not for the faint of heart! Probably hardest on the Watery/Air signs as the Earth signs will ground in and the Fire signs will chargeback.
Any which way, as the mantra says, there is no predicting what will come up for you so it is a time where great discernment is needed and you will need to trust yourself and do exactly what is right for you (and everyone) at any given time. That may be charging and/or retreating, sometimes within moments of each other or from one phone call/chat to the next.
There really is no hurry, As the mysteries of life and death, Reveal themselves subtly, In each and every breath.
Just what is life all about? Is it about schedules and business, deadlines, and news or is it about self-understanding, inner peace, and love?Jupiter finishing off his Square to Neptune is still seeking the answers! In the meantime, life may throw up a bunch of paraphernalia/confetti in our faces to help us see if we’re sure. Don’t get pulled into the BS these days. The deeper mysteries of life are not changing as fast as we might think and the fundamental reasons for existence have remained the same. Go deep.
This is a great time to dig deep down into our woundedness to find the remedy and our special medicine for the people! Come together with like-minded souls, put our heads and hearts together and re-member our humanness. Let’s all slow down, take charge and be the true “authors of our own lives” (authority), that we were born to be!
Everything has a beginning, but, The end is determined by, How much love I give and take, With who, for what, and why.
With Pluto slowly stationing and Saturn slowly making his final pass over the South Node of the Moon, it’s clean up karma time. It’s the end of past ways, the completion phase, the phase of realization “Was this worth it, did it work, did I succeed or fail.” Time to tally up and more than “manage” our “wins” and “losses,” learn from them. Did we spread our time, energy, love and attention in the best way, for the best reasons, and in the right directions? From a clear, clean analysis of the results we’re experiencing, both obvious and not, we can gain tremendous self-knowledge and growth.
This is certainly a time calling for mature and patient compassion for ourselves and others who may be experiencing great losses accompanied by grief. Saturn can be a cruel taskmaster as he calls each of us to stand tall, in integrity, and become more self secure through each experience.
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.
I really need to take care of myself, As my heart is opening wide, To the bliss and the pain, both within and without, As it seems like there’s no place to hide.
What can I say? It is such a mixed bag these days depending on your karma (past thoughts and actions)! It’s a reality. We reap what we sow whether we consciously remember sowing it or not. That’s what reincarnation is all about. We may all give great thanks most probably that we are shielded from remembering all that went down in the past until we are able to handle it. Let’s face it, the childhood recapitulation of it for this life is often challenging enough!
So, that being said, I want to stress that this Full Moon can truly be ILLUMINATING! The Moon / Neptune experience can totally range from disillusionment to nirvana! The Sun / Mars / Jupiter / Moon / Neptune / Lilith T-Square provides us with a great “open door” into the collective unconscious where we are all connected. I think it all depends on the particular frequency you personally are vibrating to what comes up during this time.
I’m going to do a live meditation on YouTube like I mentioned in the report at 5pm EDT / 2pm PDT / 11pm CEST / 7am down under! Nothing fancy, we’ll just breathe, relax, and do a chant together or something, eh? Whatever you’re up to…
I now know that this will take, More time than I had thought,
For as I prepare to share my truth,
There’s more I need to leave out.
Neptune/Jupiter wants it all and Virgo says “Wait a minute! We gotta whittle this down and polish it up before it’s ready to go.” These days can be like the final few days before the opening of a Broadway production. Check the lights, props, lines, sales, bla bla bla….. and the countdown is on so hurry! It can be exciting or excruciating depending on whether everyone did their part – correctly!
Yup! harvest time is when farmers get to see just how well they tended those crops (as well as how much mother nature cooperated!). If we’ve done our work, good work, paid attention, been present, stood in integrity, etc. these next couple of months are going to pay us off big time. Likewise, if we’ve been sloppy, lazy, spaced, or numb we might have some catching up, making up, and fixing up to do just to break even. Hope you are in the former group!
I can get worried with all that is wrong, So I need to remember that it all belongs, And spend more time, With the sea, the stars, and the Sun.
The astrology for this coming month, seeded with the Virgo New Moon today, points to a period of cleansing brought on through revelation(s), hidden truths, and perhaps traumatically. Virgo is about healing, and healing whether spiritual, psychological, emotional or physical, requires getting to the root cause(s) of the problem. While this can be uncomfortable, it is necessary.
As the mantra states and I discuss in the report, it can be difficult to face ourselves, our lives, or what’s going on in our relationships or the world at large. The beautiful grand trine with Saturn and Uranus promise that if we do stick with it, great learning, advances, and awareness will result.
Love is healing, supporting and giving, Perfecting and sharing myself, A psychic cleansing, emotional clearing, That restores me to optimum health.
Well that was a long Pele! What remains in my mind is this whole relationship of Venus being the lower octave of Neptune, so beautiful! Like octaves on a piano, they are the same note at different frequencies. In astrology, Neptune symbolizes the collective unconscious and Venus is our conscious experience of the feminine. It is the feminine that is, in a way, Nirvana. And it is the masculine in us that wants to penetrate ultimately into that infinite ocean of oneness, another metaphor for facing or conquering it’s own death = the longing for immortality!
This can be played out at a number of different frequencies or levels, from the gross to the sublime. But as I may have mentioned in the video, they complement and fulfill each other. The masculine without the feminine can grow fierce and violent in its isolation, the feminine without the masculine can become sentimental (check out the Tristan & Isolde story link below).
May you heal and unite your own divine masculine & feminine and live in eternal bliss on Earth!
Creation is a violent act, Destroying what was before, It’s up to us to imbue it with love, So the result is something more.
We’ve got a powerful feminine Venus that just consulted with the “Source of Light” (Sun), now on her way to consult with a “descending” Mars, look out! The opportunity afforded can be the creation of sacred union or the reverse; admonishment, karmic backlash, and power struggles. It’s really up to each of us personally and society at large to see how each will use their power – constructively or destructively.
The masculine may go into defense mode and attempt to further suppress the voice of the feminine, the dark, the public, etc. The feminine may shutdown, harden and revolt against the advances of the masculine.
Hopefully a common respect, mutual admiration and LOVE can unite them together for the creation of a new paradigm based on acceptance, devotion and o-creation.
