I've been in a "mood". My inner struggle seems to be connecting to my outer self. The Sun, Moon, Mercury and Venus are in Sagittarius opposite my sign of Gemini and I feel the polarity, the push pull, the mood swings, the emotions rolling like waves on a beach. I'm a sentimental fool and find myself watching Hallmark Christmas movies and crying for a world were people are nicer to each other, where goodness wins.
Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter - the planet of abundance, higher learning, world travel, and spirituality. It's the 9th house. And the house of "God" is so important in our lives now, this next 2 weeks will force us to look at our hearts and grow, and open and love our fellow man more, and wish each of us the best. "God's House" speaks to us now in dreams, moods and intuition. Listen up.
The news in the world is heartbreaking. I scarcely recognize my country or the world. So much pain, so much unfairness, while world leaders shirk their duties. It makes me physically ill, as it breaks my heart.
But I am so hopeful now about the future because there is protesting in the streets and the people have awakened and the tide will be turned, after much pain and weariness, but it will be won.
Saturn is in Scorpio's last 16 days. We feel pinned down, trapped, shut down. Saturn is wringing the last drop out of us before his 28 year return. But each day is also closer to its move into Sagittarius for 2.5 years, where our mood will shift to the above mentioned 9th house aspects. Spirituality, Intelligence and seeing the world as a whole will engulf our deepest spaces and give us pause, give us hope, give us the chance to step up and be counted with the changers. The status quo cannot stand, and we will be asked to take sides. if we worked on our inner selves these past 2.5 years, we should be more ready than most. We have faced our dark side, we have looked and squirmed and found courage. We've had a lot of disappointment, and bad news, and we are weary but finally see how bad things are how we must shed some light in the darkness. On December 23rd our Christmas gift is to embrace our Light and become spiritual warriors. Whether its calling out a bigot, or shaming a fracking company, we must speak out. We must PARTICIPATE.
In the midst of all that Uranus (change) and Pluto (status quo/power) face their final battles. With Dec 15th and March 17th being their final battles, we are caught in a riot energy. We long for peace and quiet but it "ain't comin'" so buckle up and get ready for 3 months of pure global turmoil as Uranus ushers in the new, and Pluto transforms us all in the rebirth process it rules. There is no more escaping. Embrace the change or crumble. Be a reed in the wind, be flexible, be adaptable, be a visionary and know that the Universe loves us and is PUSHING US HARD to change. Bend or break, its up to you.
Right now all the Sagittarius planets are in good aspect to Jupiter in Leo....fire blending with fire. This energy fuels us, its great for socializing too, so have some fun. You'll explode if you don't. Saturday the 14th is especially good for fun and romance.
I've talked a lot about changing our ways, to create a new dynamic for our lives. "WE" are in this together. One cannot rise above, or lift us up, without each other. Its like a bee hive. We must work together with a common goal of changing society so we can have more joy and peace and happiness.
I saw this TED video recently that I think is worth your time to see this woman practicing this kind of thing, after learning to change the way she helped to a new dynamic, Ubuntu. Click Here
The Universe is sending us a very clear and simple message. "I" didn't send you to earth to work 80 hour weeks, to struggle to pay your bills, to be criticized beyond comprehension, to feel a constant state of pressure to achieve, to have only a few hours a week to be with friends and family, to get little sleep because you have so much to do. I sent you here to love, live and be happy." And the Universe is screaming into our subconscious now that we CAN HAVE THAT, if we shift gears just a little from time to time until we are living a whole new life. Thousands of years ago the seven deadly sins were practiced as they are today. Isn't it time we create the 7 keys to happiness instead. Greed = Sharing; Lust = Connecting; Gluttony = Balance; Laziness = Action; Wrath = Peace; Envy = Goodwill; Pride = Selflessness
Take a day for yourself from time to time. Tell your friends/family you love them. Share (not give or take). Find something about yourself you really love and focus on it, love it even more and be proud of yourself for being you. It's the season of love isn't it? How about a little love for you? Open your hearts and take a chance. it's the only way to break up all the fear floating around now. Light ALWAYS trumps dark, this is just the darkness before the dawn.
McCartney has a new video out, Hope for the Future. Listen to the words.
