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…
