Time Come

meltdown

As a symbol of our times Fukushima represents the most harshly polished and truthful mirror in which is reflected both our species deepest and most damaging folly, greed and blindness, and, the most powerful incentive and opportunity to change our relationship with Power, with Nature and with each other – as this Solstice approaches, with all its portents as a turning point, the pressure is on to make our choices……decisive as they may now be, not much farther down this road, decision becomes a choice that is not only decided for us, but, recedes from human grasp. Dramatic words, yes, but, why hide the truth when its staring you in the face…….

……the astrology offers no less a mirror for those choices with big pressure on Fukushima Daichi starchart as the Sun enters tropical Cancer. This nuclear disaster is Global and, despite the continued media blackout on the extent and truth of its impact, astrological transits to the chart for the event carry a portentious burden and reflect far reaching consequences if they remain unheeded. This Solstice sees a building set of astrological pressure points bringing a potential for release : transiting Mars conjuncting natal Saturn opp transiting Uranus + Moon, transiting Venus square Ascendant & transiting Mercury retro on natal South Node in the Fukushima chart…..

Within the general view for the solstice chart the pressure remains……

…..the ongoing T-square between Uranus, Mars and Pluto is at a tangible level of manifestation with transiting Moon coming into play joining unpredictable outsider Uranus as it approaches last quarter in Aries, and, some of the as yet unexpressed energy from the March manifestation of the T could come out at this point.

Yes, it is always a speculative business making astro predictions, but, what is in this mirror? Does this look like structural collapse, of the cooling pools, the melt through of the three cores from sub-mantle to mantle and karmic tipping point, and if so, we must ask, have we reached the SHTF moment of no return? There is a seismic quality to that potential energy as well……

The actuality of Fukushima on the ground may be unknown, in its fullest extent, and, accordingly, with Uranus in Aries being triggered anything could happen – whatever transpires, there is a call here to keep the people of Japan, the Pacific Coasts and the islands in prayer….in fact, prayers for all our futures…..transversly, this could also be the decisive moment for putting the direction of the People and our planet on a new course.

That course would have to be distinct from the failed paths of the politicians, the oligarchy and plutocrats, seperate from the psychopathy of leaders who no longer represent the people who elected them and upon whose backs they have built their empires, seperate from the corporate empires that now seek to control the controllers – and yes, it hardly needs to be asked, but, why?

Because, even now, in the face of such chaotic disfunction they continue to build their empires. The fact that they do so at a time such as ours shouts out the truth…..the fact that if the same energy being put into agendas of conflict, aggression, manipulation and degradation were put into healing and building a better world we know how positively revolutionary its impact would be…….the fact that Fukushima is undeniable and demands total commitment and yet is met with denial and refusal to take responsibility shouts it in our faces…….we know we are better than this, and it is getting very late in the day….Time Come.

….the stars are also saying, those who fail to match up to our collective needs and the demands of our times must go, must lose their positions of power…….they are holding us in a past that is no longer tenable and has all but seperated us from our better nature. Indigenous traditions tell us we have been through this collective meltdown scenario six times before. How many times must we fail before we learn……traditions also say that there will be no other chances after this one……but, we don’t need stars or traditions to tell us that.

…Mercury transiting retrograde over the Fukushima South Node at Solstice makes this a personal time to enter a sacred contract with the past, specifically the past that Fukushima mirrors back to us. This means acknowledging hard truths that we may not feel personally responsible for, but, which affect us with absolute inevitability. It is time to acknowledge that the past that is attached to the event carries forward the intents and consequences of the nuclear culture and its advocates, which must include all who collude to continue covering up the truth about its impact, its main benefactors, its ruthless and mindless greed. The destruction wrought upon Hiroshima and Nagasaki is a hungry ghost with a global appetite. It speaks through the mouths of those now disinforming about Fukushima, contributing to the perpetuation of the most dangerous industry and form of energy production, and its ultimate product, nuclear weaponry, ever to exist. Mercury holds our awareness on this past…..for a purpose.

Triggers to a south node signal a time to release energy that clogs the flow, that aggregates a residue of unresolved issues, and that, conversely, can aid us in reaching into new ground, uncharted territories, the places free of karmic disfunction in which our souls can grow. That release of energy can be harnessed too within that sacred contract to carry forward only that from the past which furthers beneficial intent, the empowerment to actualise ‘good medicine’. In accord with the times, this Solstice could also become the turning point in which to pledge to end the war, the carnage, the rape of humanity and the lands, the pollution, the mutilation and the exploitation of Nature, to do so as a defender of all that brings Life and Beauty……can you make such a pledge, the stars ask.

Astrology reflects potential, it is not deterministic, although that potential can affect lives unheeded…….it is what we do with the reflection that makes the difference…….

….may this be a time of Solstice Blessings!

Third Quarter 2014

longshipc-1
Here is a brief forward looking glance at a soul centered astrological theme for the quarter between June Solstice and September Equinox 2014. I have chosen to look only at the sign/element placement of planets with particular reference to the predominance of those in retrograde phase at the beginning of this period. This was purely intuitive, following a similar approach to lunar station astrology. This delivered an unexpected perspective on the initiating energetics at work within the planetary matrix for the three months to equinox…..
          There is a sense of ‘back to the future’ about the coming times, a desire to advance beyond current limitations through forward projection of our soul’s path, this belonging very much to the Moon’s north node. Before such a journey can be undertaken however, it pays to remember the determining factors behind our motivations and resources, this belonging to the Moon’s south node. With this in mind, the quarter up to September Equinox opens with a call to slow down, pay attention to inner balance and reflect particularly upon how our inner and outer worlds, past and future, this world and the next, mirror each other. Where are the discrepancies, and how do we adjust them, what adjustments do they call for in us? The answer is suggested in the fact that the June Solstice sees five major planetary retrogrades in motion simultaneously. This too is just the pre-amble and preparation for what promises to be an exciting and highly active three months!
          Powerful compassion based soul work can be undertaken under this retrograde influence. Neptune and Pluto break down boundaries, while Chiron and Saturn both strengthen them, give us structure and meaning to work with. Mercury helps us to metabolise the process and maintain awareness of our inner processes. Their collective field flows inwards and aids the spirit in adjusting to the demands that the physical world makes upon it. This integrative energy is valuable in tough times. But, its true gift is in the ability to renew and evolve inwardly.
        We can usually tell, from looking at the natal and progressed moon’s nodes in our chart, what area of our lives the ‘experience producing’ challenges that our souls require for growth will be emergent within. This is where we have ‘yet to experience’, the unmapped territory, and in tough times we are all challenged to enter there, fully conscious. The field view, which provides a potential that can affect collective as well as individual soul paths, is particularly highlighted as Jupiter squares the moons nodes at the offset and, later in the quarter, Mars crosses the nodal axis at the north node. There is a strong interface between our collective and personal paths in this time, where we are all heading, but, there is more that those retrogrades can tell us about this.
          On a hunch I took a look at the Sabian symbols for each of the degrees of the retrograde planets. The Sabians tell us that Mercury in Gemini, Saturn in Scorpio, Pluto in Capricorn, and both Neptune and Chiron in Pisces, without exception, point towards the importance of actualising new beginnings, with Chiron calling us to bring this new reality into the public arena. There is an astonishing coherence between the individual Sabian symbols at work here, and this gives a sense of confidence. This suggests acting with commitment, once we have done our checks and balances. We can act upon what we feel most strongly drawn towards that fits with our deepest knowings, regardless the discomfort we may see ahead. This is not about taking the easy path, but, rather about trusting our path, and trusting ourselves to navigate it. To create it, even, because we ‘know’ it is the right one. Learnt from experience, as Chiron teaches, our ‘knowing’ is what will carry us forward now, even, and especially in the face of the unexpected. We must embody the Elder wisdom within. There is no doubt about how important this is on the global scale, but, it all begins under our own feet…….
          Elementally, this potential is initiated through water, air  and earth. The fire is provided by that Mars transit which re-enters opposition to Uranus in Aries and square to Pluto before reaching the north node. This indicates that we should bring the most important and radical lessons we have learned from the last three months in particular and act upon them to transform our way of living, finally releasing ourselves from the outlived patterns and ties of the past with a real commitment. The emphasis will very much be on ‘the viable future’ and living that future as a reality, starting now. With a predominance of water in the planetary elemental matrix that reality is carrying healing and nourishing energy as we live it.
          One week before Lughnasadh Mars will begin travelling through Scorpio, conjuncting Saturn on the way, and, by Equinox will have reached the early degrees of Sagittarius – live that reality with a passion and deep self belief that we can ‘make it so’.
        The midpoint of the quarter is also preceded by a new Moon in early Leo, this time conjunct Jupiter. Jupiter’s entry into Leo on July 16th also marks the end of the Mercury retrograde period, so this will really flag up the second half of the quarter as a time to not only embody our soul’s path fully, but, to shine through our unique individuality and genius, and to join others in doing so. This is a time to ‘see’ and be seen, as an example of how you would like the world to be, acted out in human form. There needs to be an element of acting here, of taking on the role, acting ‘as if’, as a means to realising the goal. The renewal of our human reality will become ‘earthed’. It is a powerful and, arguably, realistic basis for entraining the ‘peaceful revolution’ that is being increasingly talked of now, perhaps the most realistic, if we are to break the mould of the past and avoid our demise. The indigenous traditions tell us of multiple past ‘extinction level’ events…..we have to pay heed this time. It is not enough to rage against those who would use and oppress us – even if we succeed in removing them from the picture we must be strong enough, inspired enough and ‘knowing’ enough to embody that future we most desire.
            As the Sabian symbol for the visionary, mystical planet Neptune says of its degree in Pisces at Solstice, “tomorrow lives through today” – whatever means or roles you find your deepest and most natural passion and wisdoms realised through, we can all now be all those things with confidence………

Third Quarter 2013 – the Roots of Global Healing

kogi-way

The third quarter of 2013 from the mid-year Solstice through to September Equinox is underpinned with the ongoing pressure cooker square between Pluto in earthy power-based Capricorn and Uranus in fiery initiatic Aries. The square brings out the elements of each planet in a binding relationship that forces the dynamic of change. Imagine two rivers flowing towards each other at right angles – under this influence we are now in the midst of their confluence.

A place and time of underlying turbulence, this period also sees the manifestation of a major aspect between the Water signs – a grand trine is triggered over the first two months of this quarter, and, here we find an energy matrix that offers us supportive, deep and meaningful healing to balance the turbulent undercurrents. In this extended post we’ll touch upon the main strategies we can use in bringing ourselves and our work into alignment with these cosmological influences, and for working within the world with a balanced and healing effect of our own.

Lets get a little perspective on that square first. This being the third of seven squares between Pluto and Uranus, applying into 2015, this present time brings us into the heart of these outer planets interaction through this challenging aspect. Within the cycle of seven, the third, like the preceding two, was exact (2013-05-20) on a waxing Moon phase, this time when the Moon was approaching fullness in the second quarter. The following four squares over the next two years or so take place on waning Moon phases. We are still in the formative phase – synthesis is not yet available to us, we are still being heavily pulled by the tidal flow. But, this is also important as the lunations through this time hold much potential for radical shifts, and the Moon, symbolising the People, also rules Cancer…..

The influence of Pluto and Uranus as outer planets is global and impersonal, and, even though we are all feeling the impacts of their effects, the enormity of it all can be overwhelming. With species decline, weather manipulation and the GMO debacle out in the open and being hotly discussed, for example, these influences are also bringing increasingly unified collective energy and awareness into manifestation, so, while the field supports this awareness, it also challenges us to respond with awareness.

Transformation, Pluto also reminds us, begins at root, and, given Pluto’s connection with the unconscious, it would be dangerously naive to think that this will all resolve itself in time without conscious involvement…….mounting evidence of top-down corruption, politically and technologically driven social engineering and the revelation of manipulative ‘false flag’ interventions expose the extent and truth of this. Alongside with this we see that, where state endorsed mass media relentlessly hides or cosmeticises the truth, instantaneous exposure via the internet is growing as a fuel to intervention, which is also very much a Uranian trademark.

Almost anywhere we look in the world now this dynamic is playing out, but, it does so with apparent impunity. The entropic and negentropic, both collapse and growth, destruction and creation, appear to be, if not intimately bound together, blatantly concurrent. Their joint volatility under this influence is enlarging and feeding a vortex of manifestation with an increasingly dynamic polarity of interaction. Where Pluto is essentially process oriented Uranus is interventional. Where the illuminating side of the one has precedent, the shadow side of the other is invoked – and the only realistic way is ‘through’, such is the quality of the square now.

The key is in centering ourselves within the heart of the vortex, its still center. That center is available to and can be found within us all, if we take time to access it, and here is where our personal interventions become immensely valuable to affecting change through working with the positive side of the underlying dynamic. Consequently, through this time in particular, awareness and emotional stability and intelligence are of the greatest importance to us all. Paying attention to these matter, enabling a unification of action and purpose to arise from within our own circle, on a personal level, that will have a beneficial effect on the bigger picture.

While a rising unity is already present here, that which opposes it is also exposed, and this raises tensions, especially where there are already imbalances of power. In the long run we will see outcry and protest increasingly become the individually fueled mass response where these polarities emerge. Turkey’s is the latest example, a perfect illustration – what began through a small number of people seeking to protect a park, a meeting place of human and natural beauty, from impending destruction to make way for a shopping mall, quickly escalated into a national uprising in the face of oppressive political agendas and the unwanted imposition of the vested interests of the few. There is a stunning encapsulation of the current debacle clearly present here – but, being ‘in the midst’, so to speak, it will not end here……

….it may be a truism to say that, until political will reflects the will of the masses, mass unrest is inevitable and protest is necessary. There are many grievances being expressed here, harboured at what are also deep underlying levels. Where these have been unconsciously held, in Pluto’s realms, Uranus influence casts sudden and piercing light upon them and ignites their emotional potential, bringing them into a charged state within collective awareness. There is also an incredible outpouring of creative energy present here, as anyone plugged into social networking will witness. But, if the Uranus/Pluto square is currently pushing the issue without expectation of immediate resolution, the emotional charge that grief and collective protest will invoke may also remain unresolved. This augers a hot and chaotic build up of tension at large, so, Uranus flashpoints will almost certainly invoke Plutonic controlling and clamp-downs, and, increasing political and economic breakdowns and exposure invoke fierce activism, as well as creative innovation, as a counter. True to the dynamic of the square, while there is a feeling of ‘inevitablility’ invoked here, there is in fact no given predictability; the entire field is primed, sensitised and capable of manifesting this dynamic, so, neither is there room for avoidance or denial. This too is reflected in the world at large. But, watch carefully for how this plays out through internet accessability and a growing ‘truth’ game – the divide becoming increasingly apparent between those who ‘hold’ power and those who are ‘reclaiming’ it, in the name of truth.

We can expect a strong flow of feelings and focus on protective energy to dominate the collective mood, especially through the first half of this quarter……emotions and feelings being so central to the water signs, the influence of the grand trine becomes especially important now. As if it isn’t already, Water is going to become a big issue. The fundamental necessity of water to life, its centrality within ecosystems, as well as healing through the blessings of the release it can bring, can be successfully combined here if we focus on emotional and spiritual ecology – we are called to protect our heritage and correct our legacy, certainly themes befitting of the sign of Cancer. The image of the spiritual activist as ‘eco-warrior’, within both external and internal eco-systems, the protective and spiritualised actions of care that we bring to bear, can have profound meaning for us all now and for our children. This is essentially to engage with an ecology of soul and the planetary matrix is conspiring to open a fluid channel for these present energies to flow through at a soul level.

To utilise this dynamic and put it to good use in the world we must first accept that ‘this is how it is’ with us, now. Saturnian realism. There is a turbulent groundswell that affects us all at work in the world, pushing the curve of change, but, essentially so. For both the warrior and the healer alike being well centered is crucial. In centering we find the source point, and access to the field. And ‘the field’ is Neptune’s operative medium. If you are so inclined you can read this as a commitment to work in complete alignment with the spirit worlds, to let this commitment infuse and inform our lives. As energy workers balanced connection with the source field is also the fundamental basis of true healing. In both cases we become the conduit. We need to cleanse and strengthen this connection, and then, ‘let the power flow through us’. The grand trine represents an ongoing influence sourced in the field, occupying the middle ground or interface between the seen and unseen realms, so, this is something we can rely on here and now – the importance of this cannot be emphasised enough. Where we lack the power of personal vision we can benefit the greater scope and guidance of spirit and the source field.

The enormity of the problems our ecological approach encompasses may seem overwhelming and intensifying, but, that is precisely why the symbol of the eco-warrior spirit is being invoked – courage and commitment, as well as emotional intelligence and awareness, are amongst its halmarks. The universality of compassion and the inspiration of spirit make these qualities effective as a collective ecology, pragmatic realism towards deeply grounded truths make it powerfully effective, and these are highlighted through Neptune in Pisces and Saturn in Scorpio respectively – the inner ‘planets’ (the Sun and Moon being included) transiting Cancer bring it all home and within our personal reach.

In the run up to the cross-quarter point of Lughnasadh, and beyond, the grand Water trine will be triggered repeatedly through the personal influences of the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars and Jupiter in transit through the sign of the Crab as they key-in to the ongoing trine between Neptune and Saturn. This post goes to ‘publish’ as Mercury opposes Pluto and Venus connects into the grand trine.

With the emphasis on ‘the personal’ connecting with the field through Cancer, our personal connections with the wise council of the ancestral spirits and the nourishing power and protection that they sponsor us through, will give meaningfulness and depth to the guidance we can call upon. Where we have already established strong connections with our own ancestors we can ask them to work with us – where we are unsure of this connection we can turn to Nature, as their presence is strong in the flora and fauna, the earth and waters of our lands. Connect with natural allies, with ‘power places’, to bring the ancestral links alive. Here we also connect with our own spiritual roots.

Working from the root, the counter-balance to plutocratic pressure, destruction and disempowerment is in focusing on the cool deep running waters of our personal medicines, the ‘imaginal’ capacity that we all have, which connects us to the mature, experienced elder wisdom. This is the time to gather in the clans and healing circles, to be in nature, to call in the allies and to open strong channels for the spiritual power of fundamental healing to flow through us. Whether it be in the intimacy of our personal sacred space, within our homes, or in the groups to which we belong, in gatherings of the many, when the root is present and flowing with spiritual sap it feeds the collective through which it flowers and finds outward expression.

This is, initially, a collective movement of energy in time that will find its own natural connections, but, if nothing else, this will be the prime time to call upon the spirits of Water, to give thanks and prayers of gratitude to them for giving us Life. Ask for their help in removing obstacles to transformation, for major collective healing, and for finding creative pathways for the flow of this emergent healing energy. Flow is everything here……trine energy can be wonderful, but, can also over-relax and make us lazy, so, while ‘down-time’ is vital in these times, make this a conscious use of that energy.

Remaining ‘awake and aware’ of what is happening around us also is essential – the simplest of things, its good to at least splash water on your face and arms, but, laughter too is a great healer when its flowing. If you are so blessed to be able to do so, bring play and joy into the mix! Go stand in the rain, in a fountain, a stream, run through the surf, go ‘wild-swimming’, if the spirit so moves you, but, do remember to hit your personal ‘refresh’ button. Take prayers to the rivers and lakes, to the oceans and the humble bowl of water on our altars. An herbal bath at the end of the day will help restore vitality, cleanse out toxins and strengthen our connections with the plant allies. If in doubt consult your local ‘curandera’ or herbalist, listen to the voices of nature. Asking for blessings from ‘Mama Water’, from the plant spirits – and always with deep gratitude – the network is strengthened.

We can be subtle in all this as well, at the same time. I emphasise playfulness here as these times are not in any way envisaging a call to ‘up’ confrontation, but, to invoke and stand within the flow of a greater power. That is an irresistable power in the face of the seemingly immovable object. Scorpio and Pisces emphasise the hidden and the intangible, as does Cancer the importance of inner and outer boundaries, and all operate here within the powerful elemental influence of compassionate pragmatism that Water embodies. Spiritual protection works in the subtle realms. We do not need to wear our power openly……

In many ways this amounts to preperation for working with future eventualities, in the manner of one entering sacred space, as well as, for example in the traditions of the ‘grief ritual’, the personal clarification and cleansing that precedes healing of old wounds.

Water is also the primary element at the heart of healing through grief……so much of our ecological debacle is rooted in the past, in the ongoing effects of un-acknowledge and un-expressed grief. It is also a dynamic that is very much behind the relentless drive of ‘progress’, a double blind that unconsciously seeks solution divorced from the past while towing the un-acknowledged emotional charge of the past behind it.

In Pisces Chiron also continues to oscillate over the first half of the sign, so, the trine from Neptune to Saturn is joined towards and throughout the second half of the quarter by Chiron’s trine to the north node of the Moon. This further emphasises the soul dimensions of the water trine. The wounds of the past and their ongoing lessons are present with us in so much of the destructive energy at work in the world. This is an opportunity to bring elder wisdom to work as an agency of transition that accepts the wounds we have suffered. It does so because the elders know through experience that taking up and expressing the grief behind those wounds fuels collective and corrective soul healing. Reclaiming the power locked up within them empowers us and allows us to move on with vigour and knowledge. Within both the inner and outer ecological issues facing us this will inevitably bring us into an emotionally charged space, one in which release becomes the precursor to transition. While the social, economic, environmental, political and spiritual injustices remain, We must be prepared to grieve.

In many ways the grief process is also about clearing the emotional body of hindrances and blocks, as well as freeing our subtle self into full living – decontaminating our subtle self and unhooking from archetypal patterning will be key to our future. So much of the plutocratic misuse of human power rests upon maintaining the  presence and effectiveness of those contaminants and patterns. It could be, the only thing that can facilitate humanity’s entry into maturity is a mass outpouring, not of violent confrontation, but, of emotional power through grief.  A part of the problem for us is how we facilitate this without it becoming confrontational, and without creating more grief. This takes prescient vision and strong soul-centered leadership – this too brings our personal work into a wider perspective, one in which we can all potentially fulfill that role, and embody the Imaginal’s role. This role was introduced recently at Owlmirror, the sister site to ‘root medicine’ – it is a visionary role that fits and carries a strong call.

When Venus enters Leo towards the end of June the time will be ripe for this calling to gather in power. We must take heart in this, and be willing to witness each others passion and hot tears in the face of usury and oppression as an essential part of the transformation process. This is real, and absolutely necessary if a release into a renewed sensivity for and appreciation of Life is to take the upper hand. But, Venus in Leo also signifies this in outward expression, through an appreciation of beauty and natural resource. Many are already rising to this call….but, we have not yet reached critical mass. July will see the empowered spread of this as an imperative to the masses with Mars and Jupiter conjunct in mid-Cancer, building to full strength just as Venus exits Leo on the July full Moon, 2013-07-22. Expect the rising energy felt then to become more widely present in the outer world as Lughnasadh approaches, as Mars and Jupiter oppose Pluto. This could be a tough test – but, it could also be a time of increasing confidence in People power if we hold fast to our center as we meet it.

Around Lughnasadh and into the second half of this quarter, in the run up to Equinox, the field for empowered individual work will open further, following through from this foundation. Being confident in the meaningfulness of our individual lives can help us move energetically forward. We are being primed for a cultural regeneration based upon healing values. Personal healing and creativity with a practical edge can come to the fore here, highlighted with first Venus then the Sun and Mercury entering Virgo in opposition to Neptune and Chiron in Pisces. The August new Moon on the 6th will further seed a time of expansive change and we are the seeds of that change. This lunation is seeded squaring the Moon’s nodes – everything that we have paid attention to that feeds our souls will find value wanting realisation and this lunation is charged throughout with this energy.

The more we are able, individually, to resonate with the healing and transformational energy available within our own lives, both ‘high’ and ‘deep’, the stronger will become the resonance that this holds collectively. The polarisation of power is a golden opportunity to shift the poles of influence in our world.  Yes, there is a growing awareness of the importance of ‘being the change that we want to see in the world’ emergent now, but, this is no longer a soundbite or new-age mantra. Intrinsic to bringing real and lasting change that is in line with our shared role as guardians of our planetary home, Venus transit into Libra during the August lunation opens our hearts to the inter-relatedness of the collective journey, and sets in motion a resurgent wave of consciousness that the Sun’s entry into Virgo will further highlight as an ecological and healing necessity.

When the Sun and Mercury reach opposition with Neptune and Chiron it will be a time for the reckoning. This may sound ominous, but, that is the whole point of staying ahead of the curve, as well as the raison d’etre behind a long-term view being presented here. As this opposition approaches towards the end of August, Venus will also be opposing Uranus, forming a grand square with Jupiter opposite Pluto. The stress here is going to be on testing out our collective power – you have been alerted! Be ready to hold and sustain a higher vision for your own life, look closely at the intrinsic facts of how this can work and is working, utilise this insight to step beyond habitual and learned behaviour patterns, be ever watchful for opportunities to manifest this vision and, to coin the infamous phrase, ‘don’t let the ‘buggers’ get you down’. Effective tactics can include ‘random acts of kindness’, btw……..be unpredictably beautiful, its powerful medicine!

Jupiter is here also approaching first square with Uranus since their conjunction at the Aries cusp three years ago. The issues that arose from events of that time will be brought back into this arena of global change.  This was a time of Deepwater Horizon, of the Climate Change conference in Cancun, the year of financial bailouts, of environmental disasters through flooding, earthquakes and tsunamis – 2010 was also the year of Biodiversity, of Youth and the European Year for Combating Poverty and Social Exclusion……..how many of these issues, and so many other factors, still apply in this time and in what ways……we must ask.

As the September New Moon arrives on the 5th, and as the Pluto Uranus square begins to wane, we can more actively turn our focus towards the future and gathering the practical means for sustaining a realisable vision. The seeding of that future is in our hands, literally. Mars, squaring the Moon’s nodes brings fiery energy to our souls path and the spirit of Fire, that most radical transformative element and bringer of cultural change, can be invoked to fuel the process of transition. This is the emergent halmark of the September lunation, burning off the aggregates that impede our souls path and embracing the great tranformational powers we are capable of in the long run. The full September Moon just days before equinox is preceded by Venus, Saturn and the north node aligning at 9 Scorpio to test out this vision with perspectives seen through the lens of reality. What we mean to our descendants rests upon our ability to realise it. We may not see its flowering just yet, but…..

…..as Equinox approaches, the fruits of our labours through this equally contentious and exciting time will show us how deeply meaningful, as well as essential, our ability to transit from a visionary human capacity into a workable one is for our world. If ‘global transformation of consciousness’ was formerly the vision, planetary healing is now our mandate. This is not so much a vision as an impending reality.
