Fire Walking

The full moon at 20’ Aries lights up something seriously in need of ending in its current form. It’s likely that this comes to the fore in a partnership. Those of us with placements near 20’ of Cancer, Libra, Capricorn won’t be too surprised as this energy culminates; there are hints for the attentive for at least a week before. Do yourself a favor: Let go.

Those with placements in Aries, however, might feel somewhat stunned by what comes to light. When you are experiencing a creeping stresser for so long – as newer situations come and go that divert your attention and energy, its instinctual to tune out the drum beat of impending finality.

The ruler of the full moon, Mars, has been vibing via the house of Libra for about the same amount of time that Mercury, followed by Venus, has been vibing via the house of Scorpio. If we’ve been unusually willing to go below the surface in our discussions and debates with others, if we’ve been unusually willing to dispense with our typical style of interaction and drawing in near to another, the days leading up to the full moon might read: so this is how it goes in the big leagues of WE-labors: aha! moment  *Or*  Me, thinking WE had this balancing act down pat but you clearly do NOT.

Either way you see it, don’t lose your chance to step up and do a little fire walking…

For all of us, there’s a fire trine from Jupiter to that Aries moon. You can get new spark plugs in your zone of faith, adventurousness and humor. If Aries is your sun or rising sign, shazam! Got planets in Leo? You can crank up the wattage, too. (And if you haven’t got Leo markers, go for it anyway!) Recent checks on your creativity serve as guard rails; Jupiter can inspire and project, Aries is the courageous and Leo can perform with winning style even on a shrinking stage. You never know who may be watching.

The rest of this year is not all fun and games; you’ll need to exercise your serious sides. If you blow your top, be willing to pay the consequences dictated by your place. Be willing to show up. Remember your training:

‘The sparks from your forge work should not catch your neighbor’s house on fire. In fact, the single most important feature of this span of time seems to me to be about how well you can contain your experience when appropriate.’  Battle Plan  Heroes in Training

What if we make a decision that, right here and now, (this) is my perception of What Is and based upon that perception, I draw a symbolic line on the ground. What needs to be repaired, what’s ready to go, what’s too heavy to carry by myself, what’s essential to success? And I lead. I lead me, my head space and my being in stepping over that line…One thing is certain: we aren’t supposed to feel like we are in this alone, except in rare cases. The value of connected outcomes, regardless of market place niche or life role played, is made plain. Capricorn  Base Camp

Tectonics and Timing

I just did a reading for a client whose current story is one I think many of us can resonate with. She’s caught up in a situation that she has no control over. She’s caught up because her partner is – he’s just on the edge of the matter and also has very little control over how things will proceed.

She and her partner had just (finally) set in stone some dates to take care of important business that had been on the margins of to-do lists for months. Progress! Within 24 hours, the aforementioned situation evolved into a sizable drama and she learned that those dates – and much more – are in jeopardy. Her first reaction was to feel very alone, in a solitary state of crisis…

Objectively speaking, everyone close is feeling the suction of this drama to varying degrees. It’s a re-run. The scenes are starring the same characters in the same play with slightly different props. Again, it becomes apparent that the waters have gone rushing out; everyone’s feet have sunk into sand they wanted to believe – to swear –  was (now) rock.

Each one wobbles for balance on their little strip of mucky scratchy sand. Will the waves come back to slam us or will we recognize our moment to kick off and bob above whatever measure of surf returns?

Even a Master is Every Day a Student

Nearly everyone I consult with is experiencing some version of ‘the situation’ – me, too! This is textbook for Saturn stationing and once again pressing on within vicinity of Driller and Fracker Supreme, Pluto, in Capricorn. We tend to speak in water-themed imagery with Pluto but while he plows up Capricorn Systems, we must swap in some earth imagery, too…

Should we keep trying to build/make/form/grow during these times? Do we dare to invest pieces of our mind/body/soul in testing the craggy, rubble ridden range before us whilst trying to keep an eye on that sea? Each individual stands in a unique space; for some, a form of waiting is best.  The general answer is a resounding Yes – slowly navigating what remains in the wake of Pluto is the only way we can daily gauge and imagine potential aftermaths. Even the master is every day a student.

Everyone has skin in the game,

like it or not. As we approach this next decade, it can be really helpful to visualize yourself as one taking a very long hike on often inhospitable terrain. You need to expect that the ground beneath your feet is unstable due to ongoing seismic activity. With best possible shoes, scan and step forth knowing that you just can’t know enough – but with each step you will know that little bit more. More about self, more about the strength of bonds, more about the System integrity in your microcosm, more about what’s missing or wrong and what’s still solid or usable – at least for one more day.

Most odd for us humans to manage, I think, will be the bizarre tempo conducting the various zones of our life. Every day holds the potential to morph our pace between absolutely glacial to Formula E and back again. As Saturn conjoins and then pushes ahead of Pluto, each unique circumstance will reflect and allow for personifying this archetypal blend. 

Some of us will tread right on a fault line. All of us will feel aftershocks and tremors to some degree…in the example of my client, she is 3 steps out from center, dealing with someone 1 step out from center and is actually in full support of best outcomes of those at The Vortex even though that may mean a metaphoric sprained ankle for her partner as he treads his path and some bruises or blisters for her. Grasping these truths changes everything.

She was on the verge of blowing up in the moment. Instead, she stepped back and schooled up. She went from feeling victimized to feeling well perched on the edge of her life-boulder, all things considered. She has renewed empathy and patience for that which binds her partner. In responding to the bigger picture, she can re-lease and re-direct her allotted energy and find there is spare to share when it comes to that which binds all humanity. That’s key to Saturn and Pluto.

Do you feel you hold the power to release and re-channel some part of your daily affairs or does it seem that an other or group of others plays the warden? For your ‘hiking trek into the 2020s’, are you wearing the right shoes? Perhaps you can swap something in your pack for a more appropriate pair…
