Experimental, direct, accidental, unmediated, we are all of it: fluid, in some cases unfocused, unsure, at a juncture that is no longer a crossroads, but more of a cross section. It’s an entanglement, a multiplicity.
A situation is forced to the breaking point: a death, a bomb, an explosion, a fight, an accident, whatever the ending is, that this beginning forces, you will find yourself in new territory, under new pressures even if you didn’t make the choice yourself!
You look up, your path stretches into clouds: a definite climb, or at times leap by leap, to an absolutely uncertain destination. You’re going alright: somewhere.
We get a clean view of what we must begin, and a clear message of Karma from the Capricorn crew.
Beautiful amateurs, that’s what it looks like. I do believe we will take what we know, and try.
It’s a powerful chart. All it asks for is desire. Your desire. Feed yourself a little blood.
The sky of the Full Moon in Taurus is so stark as to look plainly and simply mechanical. A metronome that only tics one way, a wind up clock that takes us into a time we seem to be avoiding.
What we start now is in relationship to what has already been.
What we start now, we start compelled by fear and opportunity in equal measure.
What we start now, has love at it’s worried little heart.
We would like to be doing the right thing.
That’s how it starts, with the hope that things can change. It takes a lot of individuals to rewire human consciousness, to release limitations around what is and is not possible.
We don’t know what magic will come out of this moment or the next. We don’t know in what ways our small generosity, our kindness, our fair and gentle touch is rescuing each other and even ourselves.
It could be an emotional story, but if it is one, and if an ending is required, you’ll be able to make it happen alright. You can walk away from the car crash, call whoever is important on your cell, and make a new plan for a new day.
On the evening of August 18 a pretty New Moon in Leo arrives. It’s a bright beginning. The LEO Sun and the LEO Moon conjunct Leo Mercury at 26 and 28 degrees and there they trine Aries Mars at 24.
Our world revolves around the Sun. We know that, but somehow, it’s hard to comprehend. No Sun, no us. LEO is our heart, our Sun as the heart of our body, our system. Our solar system. We say systemic, that’s one of our words these days. We unravel our systems to arrive at the beatingContinue reading “New Moon in Leo, August 18th 2020”
My six-year-old said, “I don’t know time.” She already knows it’s unknowable. Let it be always a stranger she walks wide around.I fantasize about outer space as if I have some relation to it besides being an animal in its zoo. No visitors. No matter how far I travel on earth I wind up sittingContinue reading “Gift Planet by Brenda Shaughnessy”
For the Full Moon on August 3rd, accident mixes with anger and intent… Cancer Mercury does have a sense of humor, also, she holds a grudge. It’s CREATIVE but maybe in the worst kind of grammar school teacher speak. As in, there’s a lot of other things it is too, and we don’t like those things.
Aries: Chew off your own foot to get out of a trap? Don’t do it. Recognize the creative and generative power of language, of framing. Taurus Is there a value to interdependence? You are going to go your own way no matter what. Your life itself is a love poem. New chapter, new verse. GeminiContinue reading “(Simple Scopes for a Complex Time) Aquarius Full Moon and Beyond August 2020”
The New Moon in Cancer on July 20th looks painful. In a simple way it suggests bad news. A sucker punch, a bad beginning, someone has hurt the baby, the mother, your feelings. If a New Moon is an image of a fresh start, this one comes bearing an old fashioned ball and chain
