A lot is going on, so here we go.
Mars. For nearly 11 months poor Mars has been trapped, first in Libra forever, which in turn made you feel like you were trapped and couldn't get much traction on forward movement. Then it moved into Scorpio where Saturn pulled it down into the depths and sat on it for a few weeks, which made you feel like you were stuck...one step forward, two back, pause, one step forward.... But on Saturday the 13th Mars moved into Sagittarius, another Fire sign like it's home, Aries (till 10/26). So energy is moving again, you are making progress....but not the kind you expect. It's forward movement and dragging one foot. Its progress but its not going as fast as you'd like. Because...
All the other planets are busy too, with their own issues, and this new Mars in Sagittarius begins with being in harmony with Uranus..the unexpected one, who likes to move first, think later. They're soooo ready to go go go. But Saturn is in Scorpio, adding a dragging our feet feel. Scorpio is inconjunct Uranus, which means they are adjusting. Think of it as being unable to fall asleep and tossing and turning, trying to find a comfortable place to relax and rest. It's annoying and frustrating, just like we feel now.
Saturn is winding up 2.5 years in Scorpio and about to move into Sagittarius. It's major clean up time. What lessons haven't you learned during this Saturn transit of Scorpio? Heavy, deep, hard to look or deal with stuff, but Saturn won't let you turn away or think about it later...it is forcing you to DEAL WITH THE DARK STUFF. And when a transit is about to end, they pull out all the stops to get as much done as possible so the pressure is on even more from Saturn now. Pressure is on you to GROW UP, to change and as you change the world changes. Stay stuck or don't face your demons, and the world remains stuck.
On the 22nd Pluto goes direct, giving some momentum to flow. But it's at war with Uranus, so its rested and its ready to start the fight again. Like I said abut Saturn's final transit of Scorpio being more intense because its ending, so it is true of Pluto and Uranus.The end game is near. March 2015 their battle will be over...and so for the next 5 months, the turmoil in the world will escalate to very high levels. And so our tensions will escalate along with that energy. Get out there and protest something, and meditate every day to keep you grounded and centered in the storm.
These are hard times right now. I don't know a soul who is having a fun time with no cares. People are dealing with a lot, me included. I long for lounge chairs on the beach and Mai Tai's, but alas its not the time for that. Its time to work hard, dig deep, change our ways so we can create a new world. A new energy in the world. You ignore your spiritual life now at your peril and ours. We are in this together whether you like it or not. Talk to your higher guidance for help, for inspiration, for paths to take. It's all about connecting the bridge between the Universal Mind and Energy to this world of Ayn Rand selfishness.
My heart is heavy with the sadness of the state of the world. So much unfairness, cruelty, brutality and general insanity. Up is down and down is up for sure. This dynamic is unsustainable. We either consciously change it, or the world will blow up and change it for us...and it won't be pretty.
On a happier note, The Sun just moved into Libra, a more uplifting energy about love and art and harmony vs the details. Use these flashes of happiness to encourage your growth and change. Fall in love, smile at the stars, revel at the ocean, and give thanks for all you have, no matter how little that may be.
Libra is about partnership, the balanced scales. People with strong Libra planet placements strive for harmony and balance, hate to be alone and need partnership to feel completed. Mate, befriend, participate during these weeks - its a great time to socialize and share.
Tues the 23rd, is a New Moon in LIbra. By now you know new moons mean new beginnings. Its a great day to make decisions, meet people, make plans. It's new. It should inspire you with enthusiasms.
On 9/29 Venus moves into Libra, its home and its shouting love is all around you...take advantage. Play.
Stop being so darn serious and let your heart float...as much as it can while all this other stuff is going on. Think of it as a chance to have happy moments amid the storms around us. Emulate your pets and PLAY a little. It's a tension breaker, its fun. You remember fun don't you....well sort of anyhow.
Mercury going retro Oct 4th, and moves into Scorpio on 9/27 so we're in deep thought, helping Saturn do his job, when pow, it goes retrograde and takes us back through Libra from the 10th to 25th, when it goes direct. October is pretty much shot brain-wise. Get stuff done in a hurry now, because retrogrades always bring back things unfinished to deal with, things forgotten return, and things get mixed up in our minds.
Hang in there. You chose to be alive now. You chose this time to live and work out your karma and be part of the big change. Find the strength, mainly by making sure you and spirit are bonding. The pains, the loss, the change will be easier if you connect to your higher self. How is that tribe building going?
This is quite a week, esp. Monday. It's a full moon in Pisces, opposing the Sun in Virgo. And this is involved in a YOD aspect. A Yod is interesting and fairly rare...its call the Finger of God (Yahweh) aspect. Three planets connect in a triangle - Jupiter, Pluto and the Neptune (where the moon currently resides as well). This generates a dilemma. It is time to find your special purpose in life, and astrology accomplishes this by creating a Yod with two inconjuncts or adjustments need to make you change. This aspect is releasing energy started about 2 weeks ago, but it's also digging into our past, our depths and our secrets we have to face now, and release. Saturn is still in Scorpio and it is ending its sojourn here shortly, so the last of the unfinished chores is upon you.
We have been feeling disconnected from the real world lately. We've been going inward, indulging in guilty pleasures to avoid reality, and stepping into the mystical on a largely unconscious level. We have been asked to deal with practical earthly issues with our hearts, not our minds. Saturn has created blocks, creating tons of frustration - some of which is "feeling" close to our spiritual world, the real world, but unable to be there. YOU HAVE TO MEDITATE NOW. It's the only way to connect to that realm. It comes first, before eating and sleeping, and it will help you be more connected to the spiritual, and surprisingly disconnected to the mundane world we are now in. This is all about the heart awakening. The connection to "Her", and the development of the divine feminine from within.
There is also a lot of emotions welling up, thanks to Chiron, our Wounded Healer, looking into deep, dark places and making us go there. It's time t make the connection between old pain and blocks in your life. It's time for DEEP self evaluation and CLEANSING. Knowing yourself, feeling the spiritual being your are, and connecting to the Divine is happening NOW. It's a hard time, but its also a time when you learn to be with the spiritual everyday. See how that connection gives you peace amidst chaos. See how that connection gives you inspiration and hope. See how that connection is the answer to all your problems. Release your blocks and let Her come into your heart, your life. It's "Let go and let God" time. Trust that the Universe has your back, because it does. And the more you see that, the deeper spiritual understanding you will walk with everyday, and that new energy pours into the planetary energy pool and HEALS us all, including our beloved Planet Earth.
Your life is on a path of change. It has been focused on the outside a lot this current year, but its now time to change within, to really see your spirit self, and OWN IT. You are learning to walk and talk your as your Higher Self, living with your spiritual goals and spiritual destiny, and the more you focus on the this world, the harder it will be to move forward on either level. Be INSPIRED by the new, amazing future.
How great to feel the Universe always has your back. How great to know you are not a body living on earth, you are a billion year old mist-like being, who has come here many times to learn, to grow and to understand the weaknesses of the body, of the physical, and fully integrate your spiritual self into this being you occupy, so you can do amazing things together on a level unknown to most of us. You are a piece of God. You are God's creation. You are God's hope for the future. Will you allow the world and yourself to become a new kind of human being, to bring light to the Earth, or will you choose to think only of yourself like you always have? It's time to become a spiritual HUMANITARIAN where your efforts are for US, not me.
If you are a mother upset with the school your child goes to, you don't move the child to another school, or home school, you work within the community to changes things for ALL the children. Activism is key to social change, and your spiritual heart can guide you to your needed actions.
If you own a company, remind yourself that all those people working for you deserve to be treated with loving kindness, because without them, there would be no business. They are your team, and need to be rewarded with thanks, kindness and financial gain. If you can afford a fancy car or a luxury vacation, then they need something as a reward also. How about a raise; a bonus; a weekend getaway; a public recognition of their good work and your appreciation. They will work harder for you when they know they are appreciated, and their will radiate happiness in their work and send that good energy around the world.
I/We are billion year old wise women/men. We are on an Indian Jones type of adventure here, but its exploring within. Explore yourself, look at your ugly parts, look at your failures, look at your weaknesses......and love them, so you can release them. And see it as an adventure, not a pain in the butt. With Saturn's help and your hard work, you will succeed.
Embrace with PRIDE who you REALLY are. LOVE YOURSELF and be amazed by who you are, , how you are so much more than you ever hoped to be, and that you are ALREADY that person/being......you just have to embrace the spiritual and it will flow to you like a waterfall over a cliff. Bathe in the light, in your spiritual self, and feel deeply happy within and without.
No one said it would be easy, there are problems to face and falls to be had - but I know you can do it. One issue at a time, breathe, relax and keep going. Now stop reading and go MEDITATE!
