This week's horoscopes are coming out under the light of a Virgo sun, a waxing, Libra moon, and a bevy of aspects that have us teetering on the brink of something huge. Between the headlines and the crystal ball, rumor has it that the shit really IS about to hit the fan — but we've heard that one many times before.
Who knows which way things are going to roll? This is one of those times when Free Will has as much to say about the direction things take as any of the stuff that gets used to keep feeding our fears. The whole ball of wax could definitely go right up in smoke — but I have a feeling this could just as easily be about the Human Family waking up in such a way that, from this moment on, Trust, Harmony, and Peace become the order of the day.
I say this because the Nodal Axis of the Moon will be sitting on the Aries Point from now through Oct. 31. In previous conversations I've mentioned that the Aries Point is of great import because transits to that degree of the Zodiac impact all of humanity. The Nodal Axis of the Moon is the line, or the thread that weaves life on planet Earth into the slip stream of energy that connects the Third Dimension to the heart of creation. I don't know about you, but when I layer these two images over each other, I see a metaphor for the Ascension Process.
For the next month and a half we are looking at a period that could very well lead to that — because auxiliary aspects between Siwa, Mercury, and Uranus, will combine with an opposition from Jupiter to Neptune, in a configuration that looks like a prescription for a total consciousness shift - and/or, a revolution.
To top it all off, the minute Saturn enters Sagittarius on Sept. 19, it will form a Grand Trine with the Aries Point, and with the asteroid Astraea. If your mythological IQ has atrophied, I am here to remind you that Saturn is Father Time. He is also the Grim Reaper, the one who oversees birth and death here in the Third Dimension. If you've never heard of Astraea, she is one of the Three Norns, or the Three Fates. Astraea is the one who decides when the time has come to finally cut the cord.
Stir the Grim Reaper into the same stew with the Fate whose forte is dropping the axe: add everyone on the planet and all of their issues into the mix, and what do you come up with? Fortunately for us, this is a Fire Trine: and because the nature of this aspect comes with a saving grace, I am going to stick my neck out and say against all odds, "Everything's gonna be just fine."
Those of you who are of the mind that nothing really changed at the 2012 winter solstice, need to realize that the lines of demarcation are not cut and dried, nor are these things always apparent to the naked eye when you're looking at them with Third Dimensional vision. If the 2012 date was where we drew the line, it has taken three years for us to adjust to whatever it's going to take to break on through to the other side. Caught between images of Armageddon, and the thought that something quite the opposite might be going on, while no one was looking 'something' has come along to show us that, that 'Old Black Magic' just isn't working for anyone, anymore.
I don't expect this to be some sort of rapturous thing — although who knows? It could be. What I sense is going on is that we are remembering, individually and collectively, who we really are, each in our own sphere of influence, each in our own good time. As the Equinox approaches, and yet another eclipse casts-on another stitch in time between the Sun and the Moon, the space between now and the Halloween cross quarter will be full of more change and transformation than we can shake a stick at.
When it comes to that, my advice would be; strap yourself in and let Love, Truth, Beauty, Trust, Harmony, and Peace serve as touchstones for everything you do — and as you sit down to enjoy your weekly predictions, keep in mind that this is a huge Free Will moment and that, You are happening to life — life is not happening to you.
ARIES (March 21 – April 20): Caught between one thing and another the sense of being nowhere could easily overwhelm the fact that you are at a huge re-set point. Don't diminish yourself, or let the act of switching horses in midstream destabilize the thought that you are definitely on your way up. The only thing that can mess you up now is the tendency to self sabotage with whatever means you have at your disposal. Others are 100% there. You may need to work a little harder to appreciate their input. I see new life growing out of things that didn't appear to have a prayer. Keep up the good work.
TAURUS (April 21 – May 20): On to bigger and better things. Thank God you knew enough to beat feet. Breaking ties with those whose interests have diverged from your own has opened the playing field considerably. Many of you are at the point where you're feeling free enough to walk away from all of it, and go searching for things that matter on some distant shore. This transitional phase will be easy or hard depending on where your priorities lie. Your money issues, and the tendency to ere on the side of caution need to be worked on if you want to smooth out this phase of the journey
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): Other people and their stuff is what gets you down. You may be a champ at making it seem like you don't get stuck in it, but that crap can easily turn you into a nervous wreck - and it is just about to catch up with you if it hasn't already. Check out your health quotient to see to what extent it's time to stop making so many adjustments for those who take everything and con you into thinking they're doing all the giving. Finding space and time to beam in on what you really need would be helpful. More money isn't the answer. More love? You may need to redefine it.
CANCER (June 21 – July 20): You feel like you've been at the starting gate for the last 8 months. When and if things decide to take off you are more than ready. The need to stay focused in a very simple way on the task at hand can't be underscored strongly enough. You've got lots of work but it is scattered all over the place, and can only be productive if, for another month, you develop the most efficient way to apply your time and energy. Others may fade out during this period. Let them recoup and know that you're better off working on your own — at least for now. Soon enough you will know why!
LEO (July 21 – August 20): The way things are going you can't believe how much better off you are now than you were a few years ago. Varying degrees of improvement have brought a whole new set of problems right along with them. Do your best to get over some of the pettiness that has screwed up your ability to be loving. If it's time to apologize, be the first one to say it. As you sit back and are hopefully amused by how all of this has turned out, you are just as aware that the more things change, the more they stay the same, and whatever we think we want, is was, and always will, be here.
VIRGO (August 21 – September 20): You have finally gotten down to the bare bones of what's going on, only to find that it's the same old thing. Part of you is amazed that you keep running the same story — another part of you is beginning to see that time and repetition are the only teachers here. Recent moments of truth have been sobering. They have kept you humble enough to remind you that we all get side tracked, but in the end, nothing matters more than our purpose. We get it and we lose it in cycles. You're about to get back on track with the things that work to bring love into your life.
LIBRA (September 21 – October 20): You have so much weight on your shoulders, it's hard to figure out how you manage. The need to remain vigilant, and consider the uses of adversity is ongoing. Within difficulty there is always room for enlightenment. At this point you have realized that you're better off keeping to yourself. The need to trim everything back will lighten your load. Getting ready for a move and reconsidering your position in the scheme of things could take you out of here. If that is on the menu, know that changing the scenery could also take a whole lot of weight off your shoulders.
SCORPIO (October 21 – November 20): Something has lifted in the past few months. The pressure is off and all of a sudden there's enough room for you to remember what it feels like to be human. In the space where we go to relax, instead of arguing over who's in charge, the left and the right brain function creatively. This time may seem like there's nothing going on but believe me when I tell you, you are in a gestation process that will ultimately change you forever — if you can be open to the continued release of people and things that became way too important while you were caught up in the rat race.
SAGITTARIUS (November 21 – December 20): Whatever's going on is about to give you a chance to showcase the best of what you've got, in a format that will allow you to make a difference. For God knows how long you've towed the line and kept things working when everyone else bailed out and there was nothing left to work with. On the cusp of any new venture there will always be doubts. Let your mind rest. What it does not have the capacity to embrace is the idea that you have found your way to something amazing, and it is within the work that you are about to undertake that a truer sense of purpose will emerge.
CAPRICORN (December 21 - January 20):You have been thrown off this horse too many times to wonder why you keep winding up on your ass! Life would be so much easier for you if you weren't so hung up on having everything look like you had it all under control. This is no time to be stuck in how things look and it is certainly no time to be catering to a lifestyle that can't make room for the kind of insanity that's been cropping up for you lately. In the midst of it, believe it or not you are about to reclaim some faith in the thought that there is light at the end of the tunnel and none of this has been in vain.
AQUARIUS (January 21 – February 20): You had no idea you could stretch your limits this far and still make things work. Finally feeling free enough to let go is a big step in the right direction. If you keep slipping back into old habits it'll be easier to catch yourself in the act. Knowing in the deeper part of yourself that what you've always thought you wanted, and never thought you could have, is lining up, and within reach, there is no going back. And what unfolds in front of you now is all you have to pay attention to, because the past ended a while back, and your Higher Self is waiting for you to get on with the show.
PISCES (February 21 – March 20): It's OK to be up in the air. Certainty is in short supply these days. You're going back and forth on too many levels to have any business trying to keep all your ducks in a row. Recent excursions out of the box may have confused things. The bright idea, or the intuition that told you to go all the way, is turning out to be more of a lesson in going off half-cocked. That's OK. That's how you guys roll. Now that you're wandering around in realms that don't resemble anything you're used to, check in long enough to see if there's anything here that actually matters to you.
