    Default Ang Stoic Astrological Reports

    This astrologer is very tuned in, imho.
    http://angstoic.com/2016/06/tuesday-14-june/
    Quote Our psychic sensitivity is becoming such that it cannot be denied. It must be taken seriously and we must take real action if we are to serve to protect our precious sensitivity.

    As each day unfolds our world presents us with a stark, often striking dichotomy of two very distinct levels of consciousness. If we remain grounded, still and observant – if we can fend off the overwhelming delusions and distortions which will only make us feel let down, frustrated or sad, we will see the difference before our very eyes. Both levels blatantly obvious, yet both, at times seemingly beyond belief in the extreme way that they play out before us.

    The proponents of one level of consciousness (♄) will argue for the limitations of control and domination over the physical domain by spreading irrational fear, paranoia, confusion and mayhem through our collective reality. Those who play into this level will become increasingly engaged in the polarisation of humanity into ‘good’ and ‘evil’, a struggle between ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ that descends us deeper and deeper into a terrible war, which nobody can ever really win.

    The other level of consciousness (♆) is a far more subtle, not quite as visible to many as yet, but is being embraced by those who hold the belief that, somehow, there is a much better way of living – a more respectful, dignified, more collaborative way of reaching a state of well-being that all humanity can share.

    Each day that comes brings each of us tremendous opportunity to clearly observe what is going on. In these observations we are given a power to choose a way.

    This choice now requires a certain action – no longer just an indecision, a withdrawal, an indifference or denial.

    In a state of pure observation, you will come to believe that there is no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’, no ‘good ‘ or ‘evil’, no duality as such; no engaging in accusations or blame. From this state of pure observation, also comes pure acceptance… a true love.

    In this state of pure witnessing, the dream that you (and all humanity) has held deeply in your heart for many, many years will begin to unfold before your very eyes.

    Can you see it?

    What on earth is going on here??
    Only from an impartial observer’s point of view can one truly witness the dreadful experience that is mounting all around us now.

    You may have noticed, more pronouncedly now, how the proponents of judgement – those champions of fear and separation who rule over our three-dimensional world starting to coldly ramp up their campaign, trying to administer their own, tough brand of ‘law & justice’ (♄♐℞) against (□) those whose sensitivities are now at such a degree of vulnerability that they are become to feel so easily vilified and victimised (♆♓℞) by this “real world’s” apparent cold-heartedness.

    Only from an impartial vantage point can we see what’s truly going on here without ourselves becoming drawn into this vortex of the anger, the pain, the paranoia and confusion – all just by-products to a largely over-dramatised reaction to the harsh experiences that we may finding ourselves incapable of seeking any protection.

    Any uneasiness or illness, whether physical or deeply psychological, is very hard to diagnose by use of traditional, conventional means.

    Much of it stems from (possibly unconscious) frustrations – failed attempts to make our ideals meet with reality, due to its obvious limitations.

    Such feelings of being let down, betrayed, disillusioned, kicked around and left wounded and defrayed by the apparent cruelty of the privileged, the educated , the pontificating and self-righteous only foment a reaction that is filled with a pathetic urge to either withdraw or to siphon the overall energetic using surreptitious, pitifully undermining energies that only weaken and defray the situation to the point where it can no longer stand.

    And there are no sides here.
    No good or bad.
    There’s no right side and no nasty, evil side.
    Anyone who chooses to engage, or become seduced to take part in this energetic drama will become immediately sucked into the lower, three-dimensional trap that feeds upon the spreading of division and separation.

    This is what Saturn wants – separation. In true Machiavellian tactics, it seeks to conquer over our reality through creating irreconcilable divisions, by carving us apart using epithets like right and wrong, good guys/bad guys etc…
    [too bad our myths and legends – any culture – are full of heroes and villains]

    Only the impartial observer will be spared here.
    It is no wonder that those wise enough to see things for what they truly are may choose to quietly disengage from this ultimately debilitating dynamic altogether.

    Those who are present enough to stay in a state of mindful, conscientious observation, by practicing a concerted application of heavy doses of compassion, forgiveness, of lending assistance without being drawn into any partial, rigidly-held, sanctimonious judgements or conclusions about what is going on, can withstand this period and actually aim to make any progress.

    Progress towards what?

    This next three months is all about the clearing away of any confusion and misconceptions.

    Until we realise the relationship between our ideals and the limitations posed upon those ideals by the physical world, until we accept that there is only one possible reality – the one that is indeed subscribed to the ultimate acceptance of all possible realities will we be able to develop an amazing ability to hold on to our ideals whilst yet also being able to live them in some practical, real way.

    This ♄/♆ cycle began in Capricorn in 1989, and is now in its final quarter, to become fully complete in about 9-10 years. This is the closing crisis in what was always destined to introduce humanity to the next ray of consciousness. Much will eventually fall away in the process to thoroughly raise the vibration to a new, no bull**** approach to how we take on responsibility.

    Oh, and for now, the best way to avoid misunderstandings?
    Simply observe, without trying too hard to pass judgement on what may oftentimes appear as simply insane, unkind or utterly ridiculous (in other words, what we cannot immediately understand).

    Do you think you can do that?

    Certainly disengaging plays into the negative hand as much as being a participant in divisive manipulation. We are still physically here, after all, and a we have a responsibility for our own humanity.

    Trusting things will "work out" is what enabled the current situation. Saturn as a planetary influence is a planet of karma, authority, discipline and learning from past mistakes.

    Spiritually? I'm absolutely capable of being an impartial observer. In the here and now? Hell, no. I've impartially observed enough to know that we should be looking within for spiritual guidance as to how to correct the current imbalance in this physical reality. It's not easy but we are all quite capable and it does need correcting.

    To just observe and not pass judgement, as in Right OR Wrong? There will be plenty of time for that after we leave this world.

    Sometimes being observant is advisable, other times taking action is.
    Timing is important.
    Being judgmental isn't helpful in any situation; it just blocks true understanding and right action.

    Mars Retrograde – April 17 – June 29 Cosmic Update
    http://angstoic.com/2016/04/mars-retrograde/
    Quote
    Mars is the planet of action, energy, drive, masculine sexuality and the force to assert or defend our own unique identity, often at all costs. The dynamic effect of Mars, both in our natal charts and by transit, also influences our individual needs for carnal, materialistic and physical fulfilment. It is the force that drives our basic need for physical survival against the elements of nature and serves to protect us from any likelihood of predation or competition by others in the social arena. At its highest operation, the action of Mars acts as a defender and preserver of the higher self, thus ensuring our best possible chance to complete our spiritual mission here on earth.
    Mars does this whole ‘defence’ thing regardless of whether we are aware of our ‘higher purpose’ or not. He’s the little warrior within us that fires up, takes arms and strikes (fight or flight) whenever we feel threatened on any level. Mars may also act in offence/defence for anything under threat that we might identify as an extension of ourselves, be it people, things or ideas.

    When Mars turns retrograde, its energies are directed inwards, and we reflect back on events or incidents where we feel we have failed to protect or defend our self appropriately. Feeling we have sublimated, twisted, distorted, denied or betrayed our self interests, the retrograde can instigate an intense inner journey as our personal warrior seeks to restore his connection to the Higher Self.

    During his retrograde, it would appear that Mars’ reflections upon past efforts where he has felt unsuccessful in upholding boundaries, will now, somehow turn inwards on the self. Rather than asserting force outwardly, regrets, self-denial and repressed anger begin to take form internally. This is particularly true if there are any regrets that in our past pursuit to fulfil physical desires, impulsiveness to assert ourselves has driven us to rash and thoughtless actions, resulting in unnecessarily hostile, self-defeating or repugnant outcomes.

    Whilst on some level, these incidents may have seemed necessary, during retrograde, we seek to redress these instances. This sets us off into a different kind of activity:

    Mars Rx

    Motivated by an incentive for retribution or ‘setting things straight’, we make an attempt to ‘correct’ our past, discordant actions. However, the less conscious we are of this tendency, the more we will appear to others as either coming on too strong, too late, or totally unnecessarily. Sensing a danger of humiliation or rejection, we then quickly pull back, retreating further into the anger with self. In this, we become infuriatingly trapped in an inward spiral of personal discontent and irritability. This then develops into a harboured grudge, contempt or mistrust towards anyone who dared to reject our efforts to ‘fix our efforts’. Eventually this pent up heat is taken either into the mind/body/spirit (inflammatory dis-ease) or it is vented outwardly by indiscriminate displays of misdirected anger, hostility, or revenge.

    Familiar with such cycles? Perhaps you were born with a retrograde Mars yourself.

    Anyway, during the next few months, it is this process which needs to be checked, since individuals who become prone to act in this mode are now inclined to express Mars energy in a subjectively anguished, wild, and apparently hapless manner, exhibiting all sorts of destructive behaviour, particularly upon themselves or towards their own kind.

    Driven to make amends for any actions perceived to be a ‘failure’, ‘disappointment’, or for a reticence to take any action at all (when action seemed most necessary), there is a tendency to over-react in the cause to ‘undo a wrong-doing’, or to over-compensate for any under-performed deeds.

    So goes the desperate recourse of the individual who becomes dangerously trapped in the destructive cycle of the ill-expressed Mars in retrograde.

    Sensing bitterness for past actions
    Feeling driven to make amends
    being blocked or rejected by others
    Anger becomes internalised
    Mental/physical/spiritual/emotional aggravation
    Surfacing later as aggression (expressed as inflammatory symptoms/reactions)
    Seething over-reaction and blame
    Anger at one’s world
    On the higher note, the more mindful, less self-absorbed individual is able to process this inward-turning journey of Rx Mars more constructively, taking a less subjective or personal course of action. Keeping a meditative, or reflective view of instances where they may have acted with the sole intent to satisfy ego desires, they come to own how these may have served to aggravate situations for them and the world around them. By choosing to integrate any past regrets into purposeful attempts to close off, resolve and dispel any disputes or hostilities they set the ball rolling for true repair work. This can be achieved by offering their energy resources towards a project, cause or rekindling of relationships that is based on co-operation rather than competition. Beginning with the self, the individual can choose to focus on overcoming any selfish tendencies in their desire complexes that seize control over them, becoming more outwardly engaged in ways and means that serve the higher self.

    “You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.”
    ~ Buddha

    Mars retrograde at 8°54′ Sagittarius (April 17 – May 27)

    Here, we begin to sense an individual impulse to assert our understanding of the entire world and everyone’s place in it, all at once, with a hasty restlessness. The impetus to do something ‘true and meaningful’, one which aligns to our philosophical/religious beliefs and cultural values is so overwhelmingly strong, yet impossible to implement with any objective respect to anyone’s individual needs or priorities.

    A scattering of our energies ensues, not only outwardly through the things we do, but internally as a hit & miss effort to impart what we believe to be ‘living our truth’. Inwardly, the inability to pinpoint exactly what is driving our desires causes us to act from the place of ‘self-righteousness’ or to exude a sense of ‘moral arrogance’, pitting us into an endless cycle of trying to justify our cause, first to others, then ourselves, then to others…. etc. The real danger comes when we feel challenged or insulted in the course of trying to assert any ill-conceived philosophical notions, or misinterpretations of our ‘god-truth’ to those who just don’t get it (even to ourselves).

    The ego-driven personality takes such offense to heart, becoming angered first with others, then with his own truth, which eventually may escalate into a war over principles motivated by confusion and fantasy, rather misaligned with the principles of universal Higher Law.

    Ultimately all actions lead us to turn inward, where we are called to transmute all our errant experiences into exploring the real reason for our existence. It can be a conflicting journey, quite crushing, especially if we are acting from a place of judgement, both towards others and upon ourselves.

    Mars retrograde in Scorpio (May 27 – June 29-direct)

    All activity now turns towards exploring the inner life, waging an indefatigable fight to delve deeper and deeper into the true motives behind why it is that we feel we must satisfy our personal desires. Working desperately to find the true cause behind where our power comes from and what leads us into temptation, we may become caught up in the pulses of attributing blame or scorn upon any external forces that we deem to be working to prevent us from reaching wilful self-control.

    In this horrid struggle between our inner ‘demons’ and outer seductions, we begin to engage into a fierce, largely unconscious psychological war against any perceived enemies that may sabotage our fixed desire to gain power over ourselves.
    So, with the retrograde Mars in Scorpio, rather than seek to directly satisfy our intense psychological desires, we turn instead to appeasing any grudges and vengeances against all those that tempt us to fulfil these (sex, addictions, power, pain) hence entering a much more complex cycle of indirect, brooding aggression. The only result in this destructive activity is that we eventually become our own worst enemy by eventual self-immolation.

    Ultimately, we must learn that instead of destroying ourselves, our best efforts are to focus on destroying those elements of our inner nature that blindly keep us at odds with our exterior world and alienate us from others.

    third quarter moon
    Quote ang stoic
    @06°♈30', 18:20 utc
    as the second half of the year approaches, we look back and realise that a whole new timeframe has been unfolding for us, presenting us with wonderful, new opportunities to understand that we are not bound to any of the linear, frightfully mundane sociopolitical dramas that have somehow managed to plunge our increasingly tormented and spiritually devoid 3d world deeper into its own swampish quicksand.
    From the world of fear-based structures, increasingly crippled by its own surmounting economic debt and religiously misanthropic activities, only one reality emerges as our salvation - our ability to get a grip on our own emotions and to invest them appropriately.
    Come, come now... Let's not get sentimental. And stay out of worrying about the future. Come back to the present situation.
    Each time we get ahead of ourselves or wistfully slip back into the past we give away our freedom (and happiness) to something (or someone) that is guaranteed to siphon it away. We do this only to satisfy any whimsical pangs for security that we may feel we are missing in the now.
    Whether it is a guarantee of being loved, supported or given access to the kingdom of heaven, we kid ourselves severely every time we slip away from our lucid attentiveness to this present moment.
    Did you know, very few people actually know what we are talking about when we say drop all thoughts and come to the here/now?
    Very few indeed are actually able to observe this precious moment for all the power that it gives us to make the most re-assuring assertions that we are, after all, ok.
    Our transition out of the crippling three-dimensional constraints of limited time and space and into a higher dimensional field of infinite possibilities is severely dependent on our ability to cease attaching feelings to notions and ideas that simply do not exist in this moment.
    Come now, get a grip on your emotions… stay in present time.
    Angstoic.com
    That doesn't mean ignore every dangerous situation in the world currently, it must means to give yourself some space and breathing room.
    It will all still be there when you get back.


    From: http://angstoic.com/2016/06/week-ahead-2-2/
    Quote An intense week building towards the New Moon at 12°♋54‘ (July 4). A stern reminder that this week will loaded with heated emotion, the accumulated resentment and anger of months (♂SD23°♏04′, June 29), now ready to unfurl in this, the most sensitively vulnerable of times in recent history.
    We need to be most mindful that any deeply personal and vulnerable areas in our affairs must be handled with ‘kid-gloves’ if we hope to maintain things at a ‘nice’ and comfortable level, especially around the domestic front.

    People are always trying to hook your attention one way or another. Once they capture your attention then they can download any information from you that they want. Ultimately though, you hold the power in where you focus your attention, and in this, you have the choice to listen and see whether what they have anything of value to share with you actually has anything to do with you. You either want it or you don’t want it.

    Be on the lookout for those wolves who are very intense, probing and insistent on having their way. Anyone who makes you immediately uneasy is best (most politely) avoided. Possessive lovers, demanding friends, controlling parents, manipulative co-workers, narcissistic bosses, general assholes that you follow (or may follow you) in the media may have a dark or disturbing effect upon your very beautiful intention to keep your whole experience light.

    Or it may be you who is just being too much for someone/everyone around you.

    In any sense, you are the holder of all the responsibility for everything that occurs in your relationships. The level of use or abuse that you see presented before you is somehow due to an agreement or an invitation that you (whether selfishly or culturally driven) continue to ‘honour’ and inflict upon others/yourself.

    Chiron’s turning Retrograde at 25°♓ 15′ (June 27 – Dec 1) sees us going inwards to connect with the pain, the wounding and the shame that keeps us distant from the Universal Oneness. Through crises, where we feel increasingly desolate, cut off, outcast, where we fear we may have lost our grip with reality and are sucked into the world of lies and confusion do we become impelled to explore new and innovative ways to heal this sore. We learn to release any delusions, accepting them as mere fetishes of the fractured ego seeking a quick solution, and by finding ways to plunge into the sea of self-forgiveness, surrender to the great divine spirit once again. Only through loss, or willful release of those things that hold us tied down to a place of guilt and self-regret do we hope to cultivate that inner knowing that allows for conscious awareness of previous lifetimes to emerge. By the end of his time in Pisces (April 2018), Chiron will have helped many of us to discover that the reason we are alive today is to fulfill a very high purpose on this planet. The true path is not an easy one because we are heading into unchartered waters.

    But it is this stationary Mars in Scorpio, going direct midweek, that threatens to unleash his venomous sting in effort to retrieve its scathing grab for personal power. Mars is pretty wound up and emotionally anguished now, waiting since April (turned retrograde) to unleash a lot of pent up emotional heat, having held much of it inside for quite some time now. His vindictive turn into direct motion (wednesday) will see us all much more determined to hold our ground using (or contending against) a force that is fixated upon ‘taking care of business’ – executing manoeuvres that ‘should have been settled a long time ago’. Caution is advised – not on where we choose to place our intention but the extreme level intensity in how go about our actions.

    All this against the backdrop of the continuing Saturn/Neptune square (Jun – Sep) – a time when it is getting harder to know who to trust and what to believe.

    Rule of thumb…

    Believe nothing, listen to no one. Everyone is equally as likely to be projecting their version of a dream which, if not completely untethered from anything we have seen before, is fundamentally flawed.

    As the structured world now slowly recedes, enmarshed further and further into the slippery domains of the rising seas, we are left with no option other than to retreat inland towards higher, grounds if only in hope to find some dry secured earth. But Saturn’s ‘scorched earth policy’ in Sagittarius leaves us all rather befuddled and, frankly, unimpressed by any alternatives to this dream/reality dilemma.

    We will find our ultimate answer, but only by letting go of that which cannot possibly be salvaged through the rising Neptunian forces clashing creepishly against the bombastic stance of Saturn.

    This week, many agreements will be either brokered or broken in the lead up to the New Moon. If you cannot strike a harmonious arrangement to preserve your individual integrity or sovereignty, you may just have to come to terms that this is probably the best time to execute that drastic and dramatic exit.

    Have an amazing week,
    and blessings x

    Jupiter in Virgo trine Pluto
    http://angstoic.com/2016/06/jupiter-virgo-trine-pluto/
    Quote On the back end of all the turbulence that seems to be throwing our world into disarray this week, the push is to stay on path towards improving our personal situation. There is an immense force behind you now to persevere with your mission by cleaning up the place, building bridgeways across troubled waters or sometimes, simply holding your own, precious space.
    This means that we must be at our highest level of discernment for any toxic elements in our interpersonal affairs.

    With MARS absolutely stationary @23°♏04′ for the next 2-3 days, a quincunx to Uranus fills the air with much resistance and our need to uphold boundaries is tight. If we look at things objectively, we can recognise this time as an opportunity to stand and face the fight as a true spirit warrior. This is an important time to go to work on eliminating the negativity from our world.

    HOW?

    1. IDENTIFY NEGATIVITY: Toxic situations (or people) that constantly drag you into their despair without showing any signs that they are prepared to find a positive solution can be draining. Learn to spot those immediately.

    2. ASK FOR GUIDANCE: You may call on others to help you in your fight. They could be your trusted friends, family, teachers or your ‘better angels’. Ask for their guidance and support. Tackling people who are ‘drainers’ may have to be a ‘team’ effort. This will dissipate the impact of negativity upon your own spirit and help to reinforce your individual strength.

    3. DON’T TAKE IT PERSONALLY: A negative attitude speaks for itself. Learn to disassociate your emotional reactions to a negative situation. This is NEVER directed at you. Negative-minded people are only just trying to warn you that they are suffering a crisis. Do not get dragged into their drama. This is NEVER about you. So stay out of it. Do NOT become emotionally involved.

    4. LOOK FOR THE LIGHT: Every situation holds an opportunity to turn things into something positive. This will become apparent if you seek it actively. Always look for the solution. This might be easier if you divert the topic into a happier place. Change the subject to something less dark/heavy if you must. Humour is good, though not always appropriate. If you can manage to look at the situation with some degree of detachment – like everyone involved is just an observer in a theatre, this will add light and lift the spirits.

    5. PULL AWAY: Learn to make your point very quickly and effectively, then promptly separate yourself from the situation. Every difficult challenge must have an end. Aim towards creating your timely exit once you have done all you can. Pull away, neatly, politely, with kindness, just in time.

    6. LEARN WHEN TO WALK: Sometimes you have to accept that the situation is far too heavy or dark, and there is really nothing you can do with someone. Sometimes we feel overwhelmed, and well out of our depths. Your time and energy is very precious and you must spend it wisely. Understand that some people will never respond to your brand of help. Leave them. Move on to those who may appreciate your efforts. And never look back.

    7. RETURN TO A PEACEFUL PLACE: Remember. You must come to a ‘reset’ point if ever someone or something ‘bums you out’. After all, only you are able to make YOURSELF happy. Nobody else can do that for you. They may only share in your well-being or allow you to experience joy in your aloneness.

    8. KNOW THAT THERE IS SOMETHING BIGGER THAN YOU: Whatever happens, trust that you are connected, even to those who radiate much negativity. If you can find faith, that there is a greater force (let’s call that ‘nature‘) that holds everything together, you can begin to see some context that all things tie together. If you have done all that you could in a particular situation and then you can also trust that the universe is supporting you – in this knowing, any insecurities go away and miracles can happen.

    Get out there, make your best effort, and allow the universe to help you along.

    ⚡️COSMIC UPDATE⚡️ ☽♉☍♂♏, ♀♋☍♇♑z
    from AngStoic
    Quote Stationary Mars is now out of retrograde, and shuffling ahead slowly through the last degrees of Scorpio, moving into Sagittarius on August 3 and finally coming out of his retrograde shadow on August 23. This is a brave journey for many of us. Since February, several matters needing action, at times met with reluctance, resistance, rejection, regrets and in need of repair or retribution will have been visited, reviewed and now to be revisited once more until they are brought to some closure.
    Hopefully, over these past four months, we might have learned how, in our desire to assert ourselves, we often act rashly, selfishly and more from an intent to satisfy our basest ego desires rather than the greater energetic effort.
    In the next 48 hours, the Taurus Moon, which represents the prevailing mood stands opposite – not supportive of the Scorpio Mars energy. She is at odds with his dark and brooding aggression and stands away, holding him to keep still, to be patient with himself - not to react in drastic, forcefully overwhelming ways. She urges him to put down that threatening masculinity and think things through before lashing out.
    Venus also opposes Pluto in the next 48 hours.
    It is a warning to mind our actions, which may easily be perceived as pushy and intrusive. Avoid the tendency to pit yourself against those who care for you most, ignoring their feelings or needs for sake of having it your own, unyielding, uncontrollable way. Passion can quickly turn to rage, and it's funny how quickly things that were once sweet between us may easily sour... or (much more appropriately) turn bitter.
    Mars is rueful now. Pluto is seriously ambitious. Moon and Venus both tender. We have one hell of a month (July) ahead of us. Let's see it off to a reasonably peaceable start, before it's too late.
    Actions now may determine the flavour of your month ahead. Choose your emotional reactions wisely.

    as follows:
    Quote Easy now.

    Mars has been perched up in the skies at 23° Scorpio for the last couple of weeks, and though he turns direct in a matter of hours, it will take another fortnight before we see our red warlord pick up enough speed into the next degree.
    In his usual velocity he covers this ground (1° of the zodiac) in just two days, but during direction swings such as this (and that of mid April @8°♐54’Rx), the appearance to us here on earth is that of a sustained Mars that sits on that one degree for weeks.

    Very soon the Cancer Sun will trigger him off (sqq), and over this next two days (June 29-30) the Moon moves through Taurus, closing to form an opposition.

    In Scorpio, Mars lurks out of sight, like a vulture, silent and watchful, sharpening his talons and patiently biding his time until the opportunity arises for him to feed on the misfortunes of his prey. The hard contact with the Cancer Sun is a reminder to be emotionally attuned – any miscalculations or mistimed actions could lead to major failures or fatal upsets now. The Moon, which represents his in environment stand opposite – not supportive. She is at odds with his dark and brooding aggression and stands away, holding him to keep still, to be patient with himself and think things through.

    It is critically important that you take your time before making decisions now. Choose paths that support your higher consciousness and let your intuition be your guide. Being driven by selfish, physical desires for sex, power, vengeance will not be welcome. Violent actions are not only overwhelming but will be awfully rejected. Use all of the resources available to you, combined with learnings gained from your recent experiences to approach any dilemmas or tension from a different angle.

    Just know that you are always free to choose your own path, but be prepared to be more flexible in how you move forward. Your keen senses and inner guidance will help you to to navigate through any possible tensions to reach the highest benefit. You may need to call on all your resources to get the job done.

    This is a time when you may be fiercely protective of those for whom you feel responsible, but are also reminded that knowing when to allow others to sink or swim is vital too. Mars’ Retro process through Scorpio/Sagittarius blesses us all with the gifts of deeper clarity, purification and much insight into our inner saboteurs (see video) and how to curb those from ruining our best interests. Our past experiences hold all the clues necessary to obtain invaluable insights into any current situation or problem.

    Learn from your past.

    Also, Mars stationed in Scorpio indicates that you or someone around you is being highly opportunistic. Someone may be watching you and is creepily waiting for you to slip up or make a wrong move. You may feel that someone is taking advantage of you or is using you somehow. Watch out for those vultures.
    Take this time as being highly symbolic of a looming death, doom or rebirth – a very necessary phase of the circle of life. It is a chance to eliminate and transform lower, more selfish patterns of behaviour into something much higher. Recognize the need for higher awareness in all those around you.

    The Week Ahead – July 5th-12th Cosmic Update
    http://angstoic.com/2015/07/the-week...july-5th-12th/

    Quote
    It’s happening…

    The world is now visibly dividing into two.

    If one can stand in a place of pure observation, a neutral space, they will witness the separation that is occurring between those who continue to cling to and espouse the principles of fear, judgement and intolerance (Saturn) versus those still desperately hanging onto a dream that cannot ever manifest (Neptune). Every day there are reminders to this.

    The danger here is that we will eventually become ground down to a state of hopelessness and despair, our sensitivities become so withered and defrayed that our general well-being and confidence is diminished to the point of depression.

    But there is another way. More subtle forces are now acting on the collective energetic, calling us to embrace the higher-dimensional qualities of forgiveness and acceptance. Yet there are great challenges before us.

    This week, after the looming Cancer New Moon (July 4), the Sun opposes Pluto (July 7), pressing intensely upon our need to shield ourselves from the subconscious forces of darkness, oppression and control.
    Let’s look at Sun/Pluto then, and really learn all as much as we can about this type this week. In fitting form, we can study this one a bit more intensely (leave comments below):

    Sun/Pluto types are very interesting. They almost always come across as intriguingly charismatic, yet the underlying agenda is one of manipulation. They quickly need to get themselves into a position where they are above the others, from which they can exercise control. Those with the softer aspects (sextile, trine) experience this easier than their hard aspect (conjunction, square, opposition) cousins.

    It is undeniable that there is a constant thirst for power and triumph over others, and though easier concealed and managed in the ‘soft’ types, it is undeniably evident in the ‘hard’ types as it manifests strongly as power struggles and, intermittently, in deeply traumatic events. Sun/Pluto types fail to see that others are not like them at all. They are oblivious to the notion that not everyone is seeking power.

    So why are these people always seeking power? Why do things always need to be only on their terms, and if they are not, they are prone to explode into very extreme behaviour that even they cannot control? What is the underlying reason why they are constantly craving absolute rulership over others?

    Fundamentally they are wounded souls.

    Deeply scarred.

    At some point during their early development there has often been an ongoing condition of abuse, where they have experienced a sense of worthlessness or felt undervalued by those they looked up to, usually the father figure. It seems that if this parent did not get things on their own, unyielding, inflexible terms that they would threaten all sorts of violations – abuse, coercion, manipulation, outright abandonment. This then develops into relationship patterns where validation and approval is not a basic need – it becomes a life/death psychological terror.

    The Sun/Pluto type will seek to draw this from everyone, but most specifically it is the more empathetic, gentle or healing types that they will suck most of this ‘feel good’ energy from. These kind, caring souls (Neptunian types) have little perception of their own boundaries and have even less defence for the licentious abuse and domination of the Sun/Pluto type.

    Energy vampires, control freaks, manipulators, conniving puppet-masters, call them what you will, but the dynamic experienced by and around these people is like a dark force and it sucks pure honest-to-goodness kindness out of the equation, leaving those in their wake feeling physically, emotionally, spiritually debilitated and drained.

    This is when the Sun/Pluto starts to really go to work. They will make those run-down types feel like they are inadequate or incapable of satisfying, helping or healing them, making them suffer whilst they are down, and as they struggle to give more, there is a strange victim/tyrant energetic that develops and perpetuates into a corrupt enslavement dynamic.

    A bitter war develops. Neither wins.

    The empathetic type blames themselves for the apparent abuse. The controlling Sun/Pluto is relentless in screwing things tighter.

    The only way to solve the problem is for the sensitive type to escape The Sun/Plutonian’s clutches, either through illness, drugs, or through circumstance (seeking refuge elsewhere). This usually does not solve their problem since they are only giving prey to another depraved energy satyr.

    Meanwhile, the Sun/Pluto will try every trick possible to regain the endless caring. Torture, spiteful acts, sweet baiting until they have you in their depraved clutches, bitchiness and drama, tyrannical overtures and reprisal, imprisonment, heavy taxation of your goodies, increased abusive acts… anything goes here to win back the bottomless pit of your giving, caring resources. Because essentially they are there to take, take, take…

    The need to feed the monkey is voracious and it stops at nothing

    How to help these? Well, it’s not easy. It’s nearly impossible to communicate to them because such is their over-estimation of themselves that they refuse listen. They are hard wired not to listen. Just to demand. And always more, more, more…

    Can they change? Of course. But never with the help or at the cost of another… In fact, the more one tries to change their incapacity to open up their heart and show they care, the more one fuels their wanton mania to crush others. It’s better to just leave them cold and let them asphyxiate in their own toxic bile.

    Consider them to be the addict and you are their drug. The only way to even begin to assist them with their habit is to cut off their supply.

    Only then might they see how damaging their poisonous infliction of pain and misery upon others can be, and hopefully they may undergo one of the most miraculous transformations of nature – the complete renunciation of the insatiable egotistical desire and the ultimate resurrection of the soul.

    But then, I wouldn’t hold my breath. There’s always another sucker waiting to give them a free suck…

    (If you are a Sun/Pluto person, particularly the hard aspect kind, then perhaps this is you or someone very close to you. Depending on your chart, you may struggle with issues of craving outright control and interpersonal power struggles, punctuated with occasional outbursts of horrendous levels of abusiveness. This can be at any level, physical, emotional, even spiritual. Thanks to the secretive or outright denial element of this combination, you may refuse to accept see this as a problem at all. In fact, in today’s power hungry society this might even be a trait that is rewarded, even celebrated in your world. Please know, that this level of energy transfer is ultimately very dangerous, and must be held in check. If you suspect you may suffer from being overwhelmed with issues of control, possession and power, seek an expert opinion immediately.

    If you have fallen victim, or prey to such a type, save your self. Exit the relationship immediately – it’s the only real way to save yourself from ultimate abuse and to help/heal them).

    And have an awesome week.

    Quote
    Venus is about to enter the midpoint of Saturn/Neptune, two outer planets who are locked into a protracted square until September. The process of dissolving away any misconceptions and unrealistic dreams through increasing pressures and limitations from the physical world, as well as the recession of this physical world into a state of disbelief, confusion. With Uranus entering the fray later this month, a state of chaotic disruptiveness begins to build in our 'ordinary' lives.
    Venus, now joined by Mercury as 'evening stars' becomes critical in our decision making.
    Venus represents the choices available to us - the things we choose, the people we admire, the relationships we wish to form. She becomes the 'scout' planet, followed by Mercury who tries to convey these choices to the Sun in an intellectual way so he can make a creative decision. All three are in watery Cancer, so comfort and security are prime themes in how we wish to form a sense of certainty about what is going on in our lives.
    Over the next 10 days, as all three ♀,☿,☉ pass through the lugubrious ♄/♆ midpoint, we will be presented by a set of choices which often ask us to deny our own whimsical interests for the sake of putting family or domestic affairs first. This is often tinged with a sense of idealism, but with an understanding too that any choices made will most likely entail a sense of suffering and call for a denouncement of our own personal pleasures.
    We will then try to rationalise these choices in a way that tries to reason their importance to us. Even though some things seem practically impossible, insufferable to some extent - their influence upon our lives most likely destined to prolong a sense of confusion and chaos that we seem trapped in, that in some warped way we can make them work out if we only put our minds to it (mind over matter).
    By the time the Sun hits this point (July 17) a decision will be made that may be largely based on some skewed reasoning. We may decide that it is important to deny the self for the sake of fantasised personal/family/home commitments. Needless to add then, that our own physical vitality and health will be prone to becoming drained in any confused efforts to achieve a seemingly impossible state of security, and all certainty around our domestic security is thrown into discord and disarray.
    It's hard to stay grounded about all this now, about how best to pursue personal choices for a sustainable emotional security against the backdrop of our societies' undergoing one of the most phenomenal slides in recent history into the abyss of uncomfortable changes.
    The Sun's square to Uranus (July 16), as well as the Full Moon (July 19) w/Uranus at T-square should see us trying - on one side, to hold on to convention, whilst on the other desperately trying to liberate ourselves by lapsing into wild and rebellious behaviour from everything we were ever conditioned to believe.

    The WEEK AHEAD – July 11-18

    Quote Cosmic Update, The Week Ahead

    This past week, with its Sun/Pluto opposition, has brought to the surface another episode in which surmounting pressures from the past, most likely consequences from agreements made, typically by those who came before us, somehow in breach or violation of someone’s prerogative somewhere, have seemingly come undone or become unravelled, and have exposed a certain level of corruption, decay and wilful manipulation and abuse of power or trust that exists beneath the covers.

    I’m not talking about the findings published in a certain report, which after an extensive inquiry last week strongly criticised the way a former prime minister took his country to war in 2003 on the basis of “flawed” intelligence. Nor am I talking about the latest shootings between law enforcement agents and its citizens in another country, one that seems caught in a vicious cycle of escalating atrocities without hope or clue of finding an easy way out.

    If your week was focused on the awful violations and violence of the exterior world, as depicted to you by the media and portrayed and defended by our ‘leaders’, you might have missed a splendid opportunity to see how you are somehow personally implicated in much of the injustices and atrocities that are going on in the world today.

    Perhaps you were asleep when our fair nations all signed up to wage a war against ‘terror’ based on phony intelligence that led to nothing but the destruction of a people whose lands and way of life became so displaced and hearts so embittered, that it sent ripples through space and time, sending immeasurable scorn into the lower astral fields, burdening humanity with much needed repair and restoration. Of course, this wouldn’t be the first time the white team ****ed over the brown/black/yellow/red team. And on that note, the masculine team ****ing over the feminine team. Or the old versus the young, rich vs poor, straight versus the bent, human versus the animal/vegetable/mineral… (need I go on…?).

    Each time we commit an atrocity upon another, great karmic ripples ricochet throughout time and space, and we all somehow feel the heaviness, but strangely too we find very clever ways to deny the pain caused.

    Without clear voices of calm, without adequate tools for reduction, without any ability to find resolutions that will satisfy, we continue to press down, hide or bury any violations against nature’s creations, whilst on the surface try to find ways to justify them, if they should arise.

    But they are there. And much as we try to repress them, these instances of violence become part of our history, law, constitution and culture, proliferated and imposed by members of your family, your teachers, ministers and prime ministers etc.

    If we dared to take an objective look through our history, both cultural and personal, we would see that there is so much loss and pain. So many families whose hearts have been hurt because a loved one was needlessly taken, never to be embraced again. We would see a deepening trail of disintegrating trust, and a legacy of enormous animosity left stirring, unresolved and left to fester in the hidden regions of our repressed psychology.

    Anyway, I can write at length on Pluto, and my treatise on this (click here) really starts the ball of consciousness rolling on this subject – at least for those of you faithful subscribers.

    To keep things more general here – in today’s world, we see an ever-growing realisation that we are sailing into turbulent times ahead, where an ambient terror starts to spread that someone may in some way targeting you based on a preconception of your exterior circumstances. So, of course, you are going to be mindful of your security.

    The truth is, many people are becoming afraid. Not so much for their own safety, but more for the culture and way of life that they are attached to. They feel that the level of rising stress and strain on their communities becoming beyond that which a civil society can endure for too much longer.

    However, when we take a close look at much of ‘white man’ policy, culture and tribalism – for centuries now the essence of what we have known as the 3D world through our legal, religious, even scientific records, we start to suspect that we may have been conveniently whitewashed by the frothy tide of hagiographic history that precedes us.

    What were these wars, especially the recent ones? Or the genocides, particularly of indigenous tribes? And the enslavment of masses of humans? Or the removal of basic rights based on gender, creed, persuasion. Are we, as humans, ready to see all unwarranted violence for what it is: A corrosion of culture.

    And yes, with Mars still at the 23rd degree of Scorpio, anger, vengeance and violence are exceedingly easy to access and almost effortlessly unleashed. Mars stationing on this degree would be triggering many youths of the Pluto in Scorpio generation (1984-95), Uranus (1975-81), as well as energizing those with Neptune in Scorpio (1956-70).

    The station at 23° Scorpio created a sustained MARS♏ ⊼ URANUS♈ (June 17 – July 17), seeing our civilization continue to be further plagued by sudden spontaneous acts of insurgency. The forces of progress clashing against those of reaction as a whole vendetta of blood and rage comes to conflict with that of meekness and peace, and the square to Uranus from the Cancer Sun (Saturday 16th July) creates a definitive revolutionary moment – an event that promises to quake the security of many family-minded beings. Immediately, whatsoever shall occur that disrupts our world of comfort and routine, will immediately send out calls for healing, when by the weekend when the Sun creates a proper grand trine to Mars/Chiron (Sunday).

    Soon, Mars will return to righteous-minded Sagittarius (Aug 2) and vengeance will transform into a higher calling. The higher the calling/the harder trial is the belief in the ultimate moral justice and the inevitable victory of righteousness over wrong. This requires an almost religious faith in fate, and that can be hard for some to accept, but accept it we must through this intensely difficult transit, since Mars will at some point come to form a conjunction to Saturn (Aug 24).

    The great danger that we keep perpetuating for ourselves here is that we keep proliferating violence and counter-violence as justifiable to ail our wounds. The moment any person comes to accept as justifiable an act of violence upon another — whether physical, spiritual or otherwise — that person has already lost the moral battle, even if he is currently winning the somatic one.

    Venus, now past the midpoint of Saturn/Neptune, two outer planets who are locked into a protracted square until September, dissolving away our misconceptions and unrealistic dreams by introducing increasing pressures and limitations from the physical world. We sense that much might not be working in our relationships, but afraid to let go.

    Venus, now joined by Mercury as ‘evening stars’ becomes critical in our decision making.

    Venus represents the choices available to us – the things we choose, the people we admire, the relationships we wish to form. She becomes the ‘scout’ planet, followed by Mercury who tries to convey these choices to the Sun in an intellectual way so he can make a creative decision. All three are in watery Cancer, so comfort and security are prime themes in how we wish to form a sense of certainty about what is going on in our lives. Venus in Cancer seems clingy and kinda afraid to let go of habits and comforts, even though they are sinking her self-worth into the ground.

    Over the next 7 days, as all three ♀,☿,☉ pass through the lugubrious ♄/♆ midpoint, we will be presented by a set of choices which often ask us to deny our own whimsical interests for the sake of putting family or domestic affairs first. This is often tinged with a sense of idealism, but with an understanding too that any choices made will most likely entail a sense of suffering and call for a denouncement of our own personal pleasures.

    We will then try to rationalize these choices in a way that tries to reason their importance to us. Even though some things seem practically impossible, insufferable to some extent – their influence upon our lives most likely destined to prolong a sense of confusion and chaos that we seem trapped in, that in some warped way we can make them work out if we only put our minds to it (mind over matter).

    By the time the Sun hits this midpoint (July 17) a decision will be made that may be largely based on some skewed, highly subjective reasoning. We may decide that it is important to deny the self for the sake of fantasized personal/family/home commitments. Needless to add then, that our own physical vitality and health may be prone to becoming drained in any confused efforts to achieve a seemingly impossible state of security, and all certainty around our domestic security is thrown into discord and disarray.

    It’s hard to stay grounded about all this now, about how best to pursue personal choices for a sustainable emotional security against the backdrop of our societies’ undergoing one of the most phenomenal slides in recent history into the abyss of uncomfortable changes.

    The Sun’s square to Uranus (July 16), as well as the Capricorn Full Moon (July 19) w/Uranus at T-square should see us trying – on one side, to hold on to convention, whilst on the other desperately trying to liberate ourselves by lapsing into wild and rebellious behaviour from everything we were ever conditioned to believe.

    The grand water trine between Sun/Mars/Chiron (Sunday 17th July) will inspire many with the Spiritual Light to act, and not repress those powerfully emotional impulses when felt. It will bless us all with the ability to bring to light the real and true nature of conflicts and what they have to teach us.

    When we all can see clearly that the ultimate goal between us is harmony and not hate, rectification and not retribution, we begin too to see that there is a chance to see our way forward. But we all need to start here and now, by doing this simple thing: Seeing every person as fully human, deserving every day to make it home to the people he loves.

    Blessings,
    and have an amazing week

    Thanks for posting these onawah. For me, the deep delving I’ve been doing recently into astrology has been off the hook. I’ve realized that as we evolve our astrology is evolving and becoming richer with meaning. The pluto/uranus square that we have been experiencing has uncovered so much depth to our life that is glossed over or dismissed. It’s been a hard aspect but has unraveled so much to rebuild better.

    My own world has and continues to transform. With my moon at 16º Capricorn and my Mars at 16º Virgo, I’ve been right in the crosshairs of pluto, jupiter and the north-node for months and months. Luckily this trine and the conjuctions has brought some beneficial energy to the square of pluto and uranus.

    I’m excited about how the first question I had about astrology, which was, ‘how the hell do they come up with this stuff?’, is now being answered for me as my own mind expands. I wonder if others who have studied astrology for years and years are seeing a change in it also or is it my own experience.

    Most welcome, Tessfreq.
    I have next to no technical knowledge of astrology, as I am much more an intuitive than technically oriented thinker.
    But this Aussie astrologer has a great way of describing the energies and issues that are coming up these days, and that has really been helpful for me in dealing with my own process and understand better what others are experiencing.
    The shifts just seem to be getting bigger and bigger on a very cosmic scale, and it feels to me like if I don't have some kind of grasp at least of what changes the closer-to-home sources are creating, it would be easy to just sink into a maelstrom of confusing and conflicting waves, as I suspect a lot of people may be feeling.

    All eyes back on MARS this week
    Quote ⚡️COSMIC UPDATE⚡️
    All eyes back on MARS this week, who for the past month has been stationed at 23° Scorpio, able again to make direct moves after what must have seemed like an intensely stifling, incarcerating time.
    Given too that during station, a quincunx to URANUS has made any break for freedom kinda impossible, the inner warrior was perhaps more prone to stew in his own seething juices and douse himself with his addictions.
    This week another quincunx to Vesta, goddess of devotion to one's sacred cause, forms a YOD to Mars, and with the GRAND WATER TRINE to SUN/MERCURY and CHIRON, a new mission is formed.
    A new battle to fight, in a what may become an almighty holy war - this is not just another futile cause. It is time for the masculine in each of us to reach out assertively to those who need help and healing. We do not need to be aggressive - in fact, the more subtle and indirect our methods, the more effective.
    A revolution is coming. We are working to build a new world order. It is in the effectiveness of our ability to transform destructive energies into constructive ones, as well as exercising the discretion to apply destructive energies where they are most needed to clear the way for something higher that will pave the immediate road ahead.
    The battle is within ourselves - in not reacting but using enough insight to get to the heart of a conflict and hence resolve it or direct it along positive lines, rather than creating vicious cycles.
    Understanding now that acting in rage is just simple bloodlust, a frenzied savagery that neither knows nor cares what its target is, so damaging when it strikes out without warning.
    However, when a true warrior of the light can give himself to it knowingly, it can be served up as cold as it can be scalding, as reasonable as it can be lethal. To embrace one's rage is to embrace a magnificence, a glory, a denial of all restraint but not of reason. It has a pure, alchemical purpose, unencumbered by compassion or terror or pity, and its transformative effects are immeasurable.

    VENUS/MERCURY/SUN, MARS, CHIRON – GRAND WATER TRINE (July)
    http://angstoic.com/2016/07/venus-ma...d-water-trine/
    Quote VENUS – July 6-8

    In spite of its intensity and drama, this week can also create a soothing environment through which we process some deeply personal matters. This is a rare, and healing moment where we can clearly see where we are getting stuck within our affairs. Your spirit will guide you to clearly overcome any little hang-ups you may have with the aesthetic, the attractive, the sexy, the emotionally comforting and the physically warming.

    Those things are important, but such is the soul-stirring now that any slight compromise to our inner voice for the pursuit of purely whimsical desires and securities may seem hollow, worthless and ultimately obstructive to our path forward.

    So it is important to see that there is a deeper meaning and purpose to all our struggles, Our current conflicts are necessary. They are a vital part of the healing process, serving to reactivate and propel our spiritual growth.

    Let’s look at every clash as a deep realisation that our differences are a necessary part of understanding our relationship to this moment. They are to be celebrated rather than berated. Notice that every conflict is an opportunity for us to find something constructive and of value in those with whom we find ourselves closely enmeshed.

    Your intuition will always know just what is working and what isn’t. Ask yourself – am I being fair and generous in my disputes? Is my thinking kept along simple lines? Am I listening to those things not being said? What are those telling me? Is my criticising others merely a craving for the very qualities that I lack myself? What am I trying to tell them?

    Anyway, there can be no healing without crisis – some degree of discomfort or pain is necessary (darn it). Whilst it can be a tender, delicate task, always scan for the root cause. If your home or dwelling is not close to the ground, your lifestyle not modest, graceful, humble, your work not enjoyable, if you are not being present in your family life, feeling more controlled than governed, then it is time to become unstuck from any static ties and move forward.

    In doing so, you promise to release others to do the same.
    MERCURY, July 12-13

    So now it’s Mercury’s turn to pass the ♄/♆ midpoint, and in a whimsical, Cancerian way, the test will be to communicate in a such a way that is both sensitive yet sober-minded enough to see things for what they are. And accept what they can never be.

    Cosmic Scopes: Grand Water Trine Activation – July 17
    http://angstoic.com/2016/07/cosmic-s...ation-july-17/
    Quote The grand water trine between Sun/Mars/Chiron (Sunday 17th July) will inspire many with the Spiritual Light to act, and not repress, those powerfully emotional impulses when felt. It has the power to bless us all with a new ability to shed enormous light upon what is the real source and true nature of conflict, wounding, pain and the shame that surrounds it, and what they have to teach us so that we may apply our learnings to help others to heal and transform themselves.

    Full Moon at 27°40′ Capricorn – July 19, 2016, 22:57 UTC
    Cosmic Update
    http://angstoic.com/2016/07/full-moo...2016-2257-utc/
    Quote Did you ever get yourself into a situation – say a deal, a partnership or a relationship of some kind where you failed to properly estimate the responsibilities involved?
    Why did you do that?
    Most likely because, on a whim, it seemed like a jolly good idea at the time.

    Perhaps on some level it made you feel warm and fuzzy when you most needed it. It may have seemed familiar, non-threatening, accepting you as a member of the clan, promising you some level of safety or security, some degree of comfort or joy. You became enthused and your instinct was just to go with it.

    And it seemed fine, and fuzzy… at the time.

    Until you took it home. And then, soon after the fuzziness wore off, you began to notice that there were a string of practical matters that needed to be considered, certain terms and conditions that needed to be met in order to maintain that initial fuzziness. Some of those practical matters may have been bearable in the beginning because they were in some way in alignment with what you were prepared to do. However, as would be gradually revealed, many other practical matters were simply hard work. And though you gritted your teeth and went along with those, merely for the purpose of restoring that initial feeling of comfort, you may have found that you had to kinda lie to yourself, to kid yourself (and others) that this was what you wanted after all. And the more you had to work at it to keep it going, the greater that lie you continued to tell yourself became.

    And though at some later point you felt like you didn’t want to stay – that circumstances had become such a crashing bore, that every thing about them was a chore, but out of habit (nothing more), and maybe fear for what’s in store, you chose instead to stay and stick it out, and in the end, although you swore you couldn’t take it any more, you couldn’t leave (you were its whore).

    Would have been a shame to leave, right? After all, you had gotten so used to it – became conditioned to put up with even the most excruciating ordeals to emulate that now elusive ‘fuzziness’; and though in reality things became far from any ideal you may have held in your heart; and though it promised you no freedom, and though the circumstances around you became tougher and more gruelling, more demanding, you became stuck there because you still felt like this was how it was meant to be. Karmic union, yes?

    Somehow you convinced yourself that for the sake of familiarity, and out of force of habit, you would persist with it because you had become ingrained and conditioned to put up with this existence. As such, the dream inside your heart became hardened, the voice inside became silenced, and after a while you could not imagine anything else, so like a diligent patron to the system you subscribed, you felt it was important to stick around and do the work.

    It’s true – nothing comes for free. It has to be earned. And with hard work – struggles – comes respect. Nobody out there is ever going to respect you if you don’t take on your share of duties and responsibilities in anything you choose to be engaged.

    What if, however, if at some point in that engagement, you suspected that you might have overextended your capabilities, or your overall satisfaction was severely compromised in the affair? Or that your resources had run out and you were no longer able to give any more? What if what was asked of you in that relationship was not only unreasonable, but downright oppressive? Or you noticed that you were feeling increasingly depleted, depressed or just sick?

    REALITY CHECK: Try as you might, the initial appeal of the enterprise failed to bring you to that idealised place of comfort and security for which you hoped, and furthermore, its unreasonable demands upon your basic life force now threaten to obscure, diminish or deny the very best things about you. What if this partnership, this deal you entered in good faith, turns out to be your greatest nightmare?

    FORCIBLE SOLUTION: Sudden break for freedom, brought about by an electrical resistance.

    Can you feel yourself smashing through all convention in just one fell swipe?

    Bah…

    Your instinct taught you that you had to punch on. More out of obligation to preserve your place in society (after all contracts are contracts). Think what might happen if you choose to pull away: What will people say? The neighbours… those folks at work…your parents… the kids!!

    You wouldn’t want to appear like a failure to them. Your social reputation as a ‘success’ seemed at stake here.

    Over a sustained period, you had learned to suppress that inner voice. By now your heart had long given up trying to warn you that you’re going against your nature. In your conditioned mind you felt like there was only one road forward for you. So you pressed on with that, hopelessly trying to do whatever was required of you to earn your much sought after respectability, often under increased expectation and admonishment from those above you, those who psychologically forced you to make increased efforts to carry your sorry ass through this. Eventually, (like now), you may have found yourself becoming inwardly more repressed and most depressed, rather to the point that you could now no longer even remember how to make yourself see any sunshine again.

    [sigh]

    Is any of the above in any way true for you?


    Are you feeling physically tired?
    Mentally and physically exhausted?
    Are your spirits low?
    Feeling powerless?
    No money left?
    Feeling unloving or unlovable?

    Do you feel trapped by the responsibilities that you have taken on in your exterior world; feel pressured into a position which is not allowing you to express the very essence of what you are really all about? Is your world treating you in ways which are not allowing you to feel nurtured or supported, merely judged against a system that demands your conformity, mediocrity, ordinariness?

    In a word, do you feel enslaved by your situation?

    Chances are that deep inside you is a voice that yearns for a day when you could find some release from all that. That you could find a ways to suddenly break away from all of that.

    That day is here.

    This day.

    This fateful Full Moon in Capricorn day.

    Oh, and for now, the best way to avoid misunderstandings?
    Simply observe, without trying too hard to pass judgement on what may oftentimes appear as simply insane, unkind or utterly ridiculous (in other words, what we cannot immediately understand).

    Do you think you can do that?

    Oh, please, count on me

    MOON in CAPRICORN (a meditation)
    http://angstoic.com/2015/12/moon-in-...-a-meditation/
    Quote Sometimes life only serves as a melodramatic re-Minder of just how easily we are drawn apart. One voice is calling you this way, another calls you towards the opposite direction, and then again, a third voice summons you at cross-purposes to both. They are all very loud, and sometimes very forceful. They’re trying to remind you of stuff you need to tend to out there. So to retreat, another voice again may call you, urging you to run and hide away in a whole different direction altogether…

    If you allow yourself to become partial to the many callings of the very busy, responsibility-laden, slave-driving mind of yours, then, at times like these, you will appear to act in wild discord with your true self.

    Come back into your inner being and listen to the powerful voice that speaks to you directly from within.

    Only you can hear that voice. That voice is distinctly yours.

    But you must become still.

    Still your mind. No single thought can ever claim to be your true inner voice…. in truth all thoughts are NOT your own. “God’s” voice comes in to you through angelic realms – and these realms are in the space between the smoke-and-mirror illusions that are created in your mind by the thoughts and ideas that possess you. Learn to un-become affected by these [even these very words here in my text could possess you and make you dependant].

    Your true calling is speaking to you all the time… if you listen with openness and love for your own dear heart, you will discover that you are ok… Perfect actually.

    Love your self with all the magnificence of your grace… listen to how your self is sending you fresh re-minders constantly that you are worthy to become love incarnate. Your loving grace can radiate a warmth and lightness, shine even unto the darkest, hidden recesses of your soul, and bring back joy into your own heart and to those of others…

    Every time you breathe deeply with intent, you call yourself back deep into your centre. You stand firm to silence all those other voices that pull you apart in all directions. Stand firmly into the centre of your temple and create a space to hear the only true voice. The voice of inner reason. You can do this, in this moment, now… it’s a little miracle… hear that voice (even for a split second).
    Breathe in deeply.

    Now, as you slowly exhale, take the strength to make a decision based firmly only on that voice. (It takes a lot of courage to take action upon this). Now follow through with firm determined steps to get to where you are being guided. Your vocation only exists in this one place (here), and is available to you right now. Free of ‘charge’. And it wants nothing FROM you. Only the best direction FOR you.

    This is the true voice of responsibility.

    Breathe deep into your heart… and listen to the voice that you exhale.

    Blessings.

    The Week Ahead: July 18-25
    http://angstoic.com/2016/07/week-ahead-july-18-25/
    Quote This week, no small fry in the series of big weeks in July.

    The big event for us of course is Tuesday’s Full Moon at 27°40′ Capricorn – covered at length, in 2 parts here

    We’re seeing massive breakdowns, on every level.
    Again a gentle reminder to not engage in making good/bad judgments. Even the atrocities and really painful stuff must be seen as nature’s way of trying to broker some shift away from liberty, one that is true, not one that is sold to some of us as ‘liberty’ but somehow comes at the extreme cost of oppression and hardship to many.

    Time to start looking beneath the surface, reading between the lines.

    It would appear that the world is now starting to become so irrefutably insistent on striking total independence. We will observe a lot more unrest, disruption, and hurt feelings or misunderstandings. Therefore, must stay mindful not to get involved in the mania and recklessness out there. Much will persist to want to break up.

    Allow it. Don’t join it, don’t fight it. Let it go, let it be free.

    Of course, some of the letting go might hurt. But big changes are inevitable where circumstances become exposed as unworkable or unrealistic. If you are going to be part of the revolution, let it be a revolution in the head.

    Let the pundits fight it out there. Just focus on maintaining a neutral perspective that this little hiccup in linear time is absolutely necessary.

    As our dear friend Uranus, ruler of the fourth-dimensional field, enters the Saturn/Neptune (3D vs 5D) scenario, coming to station (July 29 @24°♈30’Rx) less than one degree off an exact sesqui-quadrate to Saturn (stationing on Aug 13), fiery tension (as well as irritability and inhibition) will remain tight over this whole next month, tightening most intensely through August, not releasing till mid September.

    So great rumblings ahead. As stated in last month’s ‘July Forecast‘ – “Social activists will be championing their favourite causes, conservative leaders will be challenged and overcome by more liberal, or radical chieftains, but most significantly, innovators and scientists would unveil such phenomenal discoveries that would essentially revolutionize the world of commerce and communication as we know it. This period also activates the true, hyper-kinetic CRYSTAL CHILDREN, born in the last 30-40 years, whose effect on raising global consciousness will take on many disruptive forms – some very difficult to cope with, let alone understand. These will eventually wipe out our entire notion of all we know about the current, standard model of the 3D universe (the world of matter and density) in less than two more generations.”

    Observe what is happening with keen interest, but be mindful that very little calls for your direct involvement. Very little has to do with you per se. This last few days of July is a very good time to separate yourself from anything that continues to play into the dense world of fear, judgement and oppression.
    An intensive analysis & study of the main aspects this week, activating through this critical Full Moon is included here in Part 2 of our Full Moon report. This is a phenomenal time in world security, and as ‘leaders’ juxtapose their plans to defend us, ‘followers’ seem to be not following as easily.

    The Sun moves into Leo on Friday (July 22), turning the spotlight away from areas of security and comfortability with ourselves (Cancer) to self-awareness and confidence (Leo) highlighting where we shine brightest, and how we express ourselves most uniquely. Leo the lion is about sovereignty, so it’s going to be an interesting month.
    So stay on the sunny side, at least until the end of the week, knowing of course that this Full Moon will mark a time of great endings for many, particularly on the home/domestic front.
    After all, there’s really no security left in clinging to the dross and dead wood of yesterday, and sad as it may be, it can no longer care for you because deep down – in truth – you have lost faith in that illusion.
    Have an amazing week xx
    Blessings,
    Quote Pre-FULL MOON conjunct PLUTO
    The Capricorn MOON is now 24 hours away from it's FULL opposition to the SUN.
    Ruled by Saturn, she is the no-nonsense feminine force whose sober, unemotional, almost unfeeling devotion to duty and responsibility will allow her to withstand even the most heartfelt-embracing, warmest, clingiest, most accommodating clutches of that Cancer Sun.
    "It's time", she says, and as she now joins forces with that dark overlord PLUTO, she bears a grave, one-sided and heavy force to see that what must be done is executed to the full, terminal thrust of her conviction.
    In this very painful, yet necessary process of ELIMINATION - in this relinquishing of all those things that either cling to us, or that we cling upon for comfort and security - in the LETTING GO of that which we are NOT, our curiosity and wonderment is allowed to return to what in fact we ARE.
    FULL MOON is tomorrow (22:57 UTC).
    SUN will move into LEO in three days (SOVEREIGNTY)
