About 1weaver

generally speaking, here is where the news that i come across in science, philosophy, mythology, geo-politics and personal experience can blend to fuel our minds and imaginations. the world is a rapidly changing place with many of us feeling that we have one foot in the past, one foot in the present and no clue about our where our feet will be in the future. its my belief that we can find our path by knowing ourselves more clearly, more objectively. individuals are unique blendings of the cultural, familial, educational and aspirational themes they have experienced and perhaps it would be helpful to take stock. what makes you tick and what ticks you off? knowing why you find yourself where you are, knowing more clearly where you genuinely - and realistically - want to go can only begin to happen by taking a good look at You. i aim to take full advantage of the massive amounts of information 'out there' as a springboard for the study and progress of Self. please join in!

Manifest the Manifesto

The full moon at 20 Pisces is freshly dunked by Neptune as it opposes the sun in Virgo. Normally one might think it best to pack up and try again another day. After all, it’s been heaving and hoeing for weeks and whatever the All One may just now have in its shimmering halo, it deserves further reflection. In fact, often what we take to be the significant happening of a Pisces transit can shift significantly over the following days. As much as you can, allow the waters to settle.

And your Virgo zone is by no means spent. So let’s cast our gaze about the wheel. If you’ve got placements in Taurus or have any experience with wielding space weather, I highly recommend some practical tether-work.

Over the coming week, just check to see if you might now:

  • anchor a needy circumstance in a more secure pot or source ;
  • establish a refreshed appreciation for how your value system protects you and those with whom you share it. I’m thinking, manifest the manifesto.
  • want to celebrate or take solace (or both) in a special meal and help yourself to the softest linens in the cupboard for the first time in a long time.
  • do all of the above. Even better, do your own rendition of high-vibe Taurus and share it here if you can.

If you’ve got Taurean placements, you won’t be slow to stand your ground.You’ll intuit exactly how far your budget will take you. Even if it’s just a few square meters, your patch of floor or earth can stimulate and soothe you, all at once. All you have to do is Be in a state of observance. There’s opportunity here to upgrade your antifragility in concrete terms.

On Staying Connected…


For the time being, my email link isn’t working. Judging from the auto message from wordpress, that could be the case for the rest of September. And that’s ok with me because i can happily report that, since my last post, people have just started using the comment box – love that Virgo ingenuity!

If you need to get in touch, please send me a comment with your email address included and I’ll get back to you. (I will not approve the comment and its contents will remain confidential.)  Alternately, you can use the email address w.e.a.v.e.r.says@gmail.com which I have now resurrected.

Although it can be somewhat frenetic, a lot gets sorted as autumn sets in. This year, the additional weight of Saturn stationing can feel like an increase in atmospheric pressure. The average human being is juggling too much already so keep this in mind the next time you want to rant or simply dissolve. The structures and spaces you are wanting to establish are ironically mired in the ‘too much’ – so trust in the process. The pace for the to-do list is going to be a plod. When you are plodding, you aren’t as likely to miss anything.

Thank you for being patient.

Thoughts on The Way

Grace Along the Way…

There are seasons in life that take a person far and wide from familiar settings. This may or may not include location & geography. We sometimes refer to this condition as out to or lost at sea or on a pilgrimage or mission, having to learn the hard way. There’s also having the rug pulled out from under one’s feet and discovering the floor is better, breaking down and breaking through and enduring extended confinement that results in a distinctly altered re-entry to daily life.

Those going through it (and everyone generally gets a turn) are usually not aware of what’s happening for quite awhile. And once we realize that we are experiencing something like one of these, that’s usually all we really know with certainly for a much longer time.  Just how profound the season is will be something for our future Self to marvel over.

And how do things turn out? For so many, they wouldn’t trade anything for their journey now. For some, there is great appreciation for new wisdom and solid-footing hacks but they never shake a shade of tiredness in their bones. In some cases, a little slowness feels right and seems to be a channel of temperance. Words like urgent, necessary and void come to have a whole new meaning in the grand scheme of things and fear can still be real but not as quick to sabotage full spectrum thinking.

We can be grateful to those in our communities who have gone through what one wouldn’t wish on an enemy and still march on. They are living proof that heroism is still everywhere around us. I often wonder just how many heroes I am surrounded by when I am out and about. Their stories can humble us smack into the aching weightlessness of grace.

The Way is Universal

What I’ve described you may recognize from your past or present spacetime. There are other seasons, too, which bring their own distinctive revelations. They will place their archetypal stamp within or upon us and they’ll take their sweet time doing it. Some of them bring rejuvenation and some de-scale and de-clutter. All of them are slow-mo opportunities. They are also, to some degree that usually keeps rising, obvious to those around us. There is no point in trying to hide much.

As we mix and mingle in community, we can practice at perceptual awareness of the whole person we are encountering. This is simply an approach and position taken that allows for pertinent contents to present. What you need to see, learn, and understand in an exchange emerges. There is no point in assuming personal expectations beyond civility will be met. Objectively speaking, this is a win-win situation.

A Matter of Judgement

If, for instance, you find yourself dealing with someone who is ‘out to sea’ or ‘fighting for a righteous cause’, you’ll know that there just isn’t any point in getting them interested in any other agenda. And there is no point in using up precious energy getting angry or hurt about it either. It has nothing to do with you or your ideas. They simply cannot focus otherwise for the (probably extended) time being. From your perspective, it may be a frustrating case of, ‘There, but for the grace of God, go I.’ Just remember, truth can be stranger than fiction. And hey, now you know. Join the crusade or politely move on.

If you’ve nodded while reading, I’d wager you’re already pretty good at the whole person approach – having been through a season or two yourself! You know that judgment can weigh down or buoy up. You or someone dear have been in a mental or physical place that very few others could comprehend. Was that you way-back-when that others were gazing at and thinking, ‘How nuts/ahead of their time/clearly devious/too kind for their own good.’?

Many moons later, you are processing differently – and grateful for it. There is recognition of the necessity of that life chapter or two, for some reason or another. You find you are finally or still filtering insights and clarity from a decade=old happening with Others/Self; buds keep blooming! I think this is a cause for celebration. In fact, if you are still in touch with an Other that you now want to upgrade an exchange with, go for it. Both of you could feel a precious lightening of the load.

Having been there, we know that practicing whole person perception along the way saves all involved a lot of misplaced investment. And that saves space for Grace and a recognition that we each are on the way at different points and frequencies. Not always easy, to be sure, but a crucial component of best outcomes for our species in this Age.

And that makes you a crucial component of the Collective Way Through. I hope you know that. I hope you remember as you start and end each day that, no matter how it seems, you and your intentional grace are literally forming The Way.
