OH MAAAAAAAAN! The podcast is a Mercury Retrograde Special …
It really really is!
Take a listen:
I’ve got a poem for you:
“To hear never-heard sounds,
To see never-seen colors and shapes,
To try to understand the imperceptible
Power pervading the world;
To fly and find pure ethereal substances
That are not of matter
But of that invisible soul pervading reality.
To hear another soul and to whisper to another soul;
To be a lantern in the darkness
Or an umbrella in a stormy day;
To feel much more than know.
To be the eyes of an eagle, slope of a mountain;
To be a wave understanding the influence of the moon;
To be a tree and read the memory of the leaves;
To be an insignificant pedestrian on the streets
Of crazy cities watching, watching, and watching.
To be a smile on the face of a woman
And shine in her memory
As a moment saved without planning.”
— Dejan Stojanovic
It’s a new phase. It’s a new phase about a situation you are already in… or one you return to. It’s progress. What it looks like is, it may be time to open a door. You may want to, or you may not want to, it still opens: Irresistible or necessary. There is a need to it.
Desire can’t sleep all year, she’s had enough of better safe than sorry, now she would like some experience for herself. Now she would like to know.
What happened around March 26-28th of this year, 2021 ?
In October, there will be an overlap of themes. A redo, a begin again, or a new start.
This is where the wind blows open the door and you wander out into the swirl of fall leaves because something is going to happen.
October is a sort of reckoning and we will have the strength for it: The fact is, as much as Libra is famous for his indesion, Libra is a sign that initiates action. It’s a partner dance, it’s fencing, or wushu, you make a move and they make a move…
You can’t do it alone. As you move, your impact spreads and the dance changes, more power, more elements at play, perhaps more desire for control.
Issues make their way into the open… Time’s up.
Now you know, and you can’t unknow it.
We begin to dance the steps we have been avoiding all summer… open up, you can’t do it with your eyes closed. Whatever it is, painful, beautiful, wondrous, mind blowing, take a moment and welcome all of it into your consciousness.
Alan Watts has this great idea about the present changing the past. He writes:
-We must abandon completely the notion of blaming the past for any kind of situation we’re in and reverse our thinking and see that the past always flows back from the present. That now is the creative point of life…..
Also, watch the flow of music. The melody as it’s expressed is changed by notes that come later. Just as the meaning of a sentence—you wait till later to find out what the sentence means… The present is always changing the past.-
A pivot point. Here we are nearing the time to take a look in the box we thought was shut tight…. Or walk away where we had intended to stay.
Jupiter opens the door, and Pluto goes this little thing we like to call direct. It’s a very soft hammer… but don’t worry… it will firm up as we go along.
Mars in Libra is emphasized as Venus moves from Scorpio to Sagittarius. Jupiter rules. That’s freedom, and as time goes on, justice.
So much is set in motion now, AND although you may not be in a position to realize ALL potentials, we can’t say there is no drive to act, or that nothing comes of it… because OH IT DOES. It does. We do.
Still fully enmeshed in old concerns, we pursue new avenues, ( I almost want to say new adventures) like a river that flows into tributaries without losing force… Some of us will change direction, but for many, it’s simply that what has been happening underneath can not be denied.
There is an incredible rush of energy to make something happen, and even if that energy is misplaced or awkwardly received, it does not dissipate.. it builds and flows. It’s possible, actually possible that you land on target. Direct hit.
As it happens, any way that it happens, our New Moon starts a ball rolling avalanche style. As the weeks pass, October breathes life into itself.
Pluto tips your hand, or you tip your own hand. Cards out. This can be seen.
We no longer prepare to struggle or handle what comes next, instead, we enter into it.
— Terry Pratchett sez:
“There should be a word for the microscopic spark of hope that you dare not entertain in case the mere act of acknowledging it will cause it to vanish, like trying to look at a photon. You can only sidle up to it, looking past it, walking past it, waiting for it to get big enough to face the world.”
I think we have done it. I almost want to tell you: Good game, Nice hustle. Now go put a bandaid on that bleeding shin.
No really, all of our hopes are now about to interact with each other’s hopes. Our preparations end in October. Not all in a lump on the 6th, but as dominoes, we tip and slide into a time less isolated, less introspective, less austere.
It may become messy, but it will also come alive, and in that life, our hearts wake up and we dare to synthesize, to stop holding our breath and just breathe in what is, and breathe out what is becoming.
Or we can say it the other way, we breathe in what we are becoming and breathe out what is.
Let’s do that now. Let’s breathe together, inseparable from the limitless power of creation. In every conceivable imagining we are intertwined. I’m so glad you are alive and breathing here with us.
It may be worth taking a look back at my O.G. Year of the Metal Ox Forecast for 2021…
How does it relate to the year you have had?
How you doin with it?
