Sun enters Sagittarius 10:49 PM EST
In the deep, dark heart of the forest; that forest we all know, the one we get lost and frightened in,
the one that has mysterious creatures and magical humans, not to mention beasts. That dark forest holds a spark of light, buried deep within a crystal cave. A light so pure, so real, so powerful it can melt our icy, fearful hearts and encourage us to believe in something greater than ourselves.
If I were looking for one thing to symbolize Sagittarius it would be this: the tiny light and the darkness it dis-spells; The darkness casts a spell on us. We lean into it. We are drawn so often to the edge of the Great Wood. And the deeper in we go, the more we seek the light.
So begins the last month before the solstice. The descent. Pay attention to the darkening days and how precious it makes the light.
Venus sextile Saturn
Love needs respect to acheive her goals at this time. We need to care for the people and things we love with respect for this very life. Not that other life in our heads; the one where things could be something they somehow just aren’t.
Sun square Neptune
One minute you think you’re catching falling stars and the next it’s a deluge. You freeze and burn at the same time. It’s not quite comfortable for fire and rain to co-exist.
Mercury conjunct Saturn
It’s a serious matter. Give it your full attention. Mysteries often solve themselves with relative ease when we act more like the witness and less like the orchestrator of events. As Joe Friday said so long ago on Dragnet: “Just the facts, Ma’am”.
Mercury sextile Venus
Let today’s meditation be: Beauty is truth, truth beauty. What is your beauty? Your truth? How are they the same?
Mercury trine Jupiter
Venus opposite Jupiter
Today is Thursday, Thor’s Day, Jupiter’s Day. And all manner of Jupiter things are happening. Blessings are everywhere. It’s a day to understand something profound about how you feel about what others think.
Sun trine Uranus
Take the step, close the gap; leap across the chasm. Almost anything is possible almost all the time. Time: past, present, future. And then there is the moment. Kairos and Cronos.
New Moon: 11 Sagittarius: 7:23 PM EST
Think of this new Moon as a time when we shoot the arrow of our vision from this year where we are to the next year, only a month away. The target is so far it’s hard to take aim. What is needed is faith and a willingness to intend into a possible future.
Mercury sextile Mars
A righteous gap exists between what we see about others and how we relate to them based on that seeing. The opportunity lies in acting on what we see in ways that encourage others.
Mercury enters Sagittarius
The collective mind, the mind we all share, shoots it’s arrow into the heavens. Who can resist the possibility of a vision so pure it pierces through the veil? Don’t get carried away. Remember that just as every forest is made up of trees, even so the vast beauty of the heavens consists of many individual stars.
Mercury square Neptune
Sometimes you just have to wonder where the grownups are. Why we have to put up with so much deception, inflation, manipulation which only seems to keep us from caring for the sick, feeding the hungry, educating the children.
Mars enters Libra.
Shift happens. The worst is passive aggressive. The best may lack all conviction. In the mid range are the ones willing to negotiate: The diplomats; the politicians. Our challenge is on it’s way.
Mercury trine Uranus
Bold new ideas, like thunderbolts, light up the sky in pink, jagged bursts revealing the world below. See what you can. Trust the naked truth.
Jupiter trine Saturn
For those of us who really have more than enough it makes sense to be generous to those who have less than enough. Almost everyone has more than enough of something and less than enough of something else. Balance is conceivable.
Full Moon 25 Gemini 4:28 AM EST
Uranus stationery direct
They say our thoughts create our reality; where the mind goes, energy follows. It’s like Peter Pan. Think happy thoughts and you can fly. Right to Never Never Land.
Possibly it’s more subtle than that. What are thoughts anyway? How do they become words and shape our actions, our emotions, our reality? How is it a story can change a life? Did the world begin with a word?
