    Quote it is our ability to celebrate an event, to hold ceremony, a religious observance or rite of passage that distinguishes our behaviour as uniquely human.
    From birthdays to funerals, from to sundays to 'bank holidays', from easter, ramadan, yom kippur, navaratri, new year and christmas, from full moon to solar eclipse, we mark down special moments as unique, hold a sacred space, and join together with others to observe the 'holiness' of our unique human experience.
    It is this ability to occasionally pause from life's mundane routine and to honour the moment as something higher that lifts our spirits and puts more meaning into our ordinary lives.
    In this sense, we also hold the power to celebrate every moment as sacred.
    Honouring our day, showing gratitude, reflecting on a 'negative' experience as an opportunity to take some learnings or growth, or simply sitting with oneself to observe the wonder and joy of simply being alive at this phenomenal time in world history that can also be an occasion to celebrate.
    One doesn't need an excuse to celebrate - simply a reason to hold this unique and precious moment as sacred. When one observes without judgment, one discovers that every moment grants us permission to revel and delight in this 'human experience'.
    Blessings for this moment.
    Let us dance!

    The Week Ahead: July 25-31
    http://angstoic.com/2016/07/week-ahead-july-25-31/

    Quote This last week of this very long, tiring month of July promises only one thing: More surprises in ways that many of us will by now have come to accept as a part of our daily diet, regimen and routine.

    More surprises?

    With Uranus, Lord of disruption to the established order of things coming to station at 24°♈30’Rx on Friday (Jul 29, 17:45 UTC), we must come to terms with the reality that our precious, orderly world (♄) – now besieged by the floods and changing moods of insecurity and heightening sensitivity (□♆) over the past two months – is presenting a state of the strangest manifestations in how we are to approach the underlying problems of our formerly cherished social order.

    Whilst this is perhaps not the most comforting news to many of you, who are perhaps already approaching a state of exhaustion trying to maintain some level of sanity, it must be said that never has there been a more pressing time to snap away from the formula and look outside the square for a more original and unique way to find insights into problems whose nature is actually hidden nature, and in this find ways to employ your ingenuity and imagination to deal with a fast eroding physical reality.

    Sounds pretty complicated doesn’t it?

    It almost needs to be. With Uranus coming to a halt this week, his turning retrograde turns that the urge to pursue a genuinely unique direction into an internalised process. Like a mad professor who locks himself away in his lab to experiment on some new invention or theory, or the revolutionary who shuts himself in his attic to draft his wild manifesto, or the meditator who distances himself to a mountain top to channel profound new insights towards a more progressive way of being – this energy is held within, pulsing and re-pulsing through one’s entire nervous system, producing a clear, profoundly analytical formula towards exposing a ‘provocative new truth’, to be revealed (or unleashed) when this provocative planet finally goes into direct motion again (Dec 29).



    In this way Uranus Rx affects us all. We launch into a deeper, more personalised connection to our inner revolutionary voice so that we can access a glimpse of something new, something evocative and wild in these next few months. With Uranus in Aries, there are many self-satisfied elements infused into the utopian plan. One thing is certain, with the isolationist tendencies already raised by the prevailing Saturn/Neptune square (Jun-Sep) we will be increasingly seeking much solitude to explore our foray into a whole new dimension of mental activity, one that will intuitively guide us to contemplate a whole new understanding in our lives, or perhaps the lives of those around us.
    For my clients and those of you following my work on the Cosmic Tribe, it is undoubtable that by now you at least understand the value of harnessing the power of this precious moment as the pivotal time to relinquish all baggage. Those wise enough are learning not to squander their precious energy on matters that do not concern them, and are perhaps even learning to avoid them gracefully.

    The writing is now sprawled upon every wall in every city, in every state of every nation.

    “It’s time to change our ways”.

    The tension between those old, established patterns and the emerging new ways of being will become inescapable now, as Saturn slows to go direct himself soon (Aug 13). We are going to have to deal with anything that upsets us as brave, mature adults. In this next few weeks, as these two discordant planets stop and grind against one another (sesquisquare), the desire for safe, orderly and conventional organisation comes into profoundly uneasy conflict with the mad desire to break away and experiment with different things and new methods.

    More reminders, more upsets and turbulent events in our daily lives – almost constantly now signifies how critical the need to take our own unique abilities and gifts more seriously – and put them into action, use them. Suddenly the urge to break out of old programming and restrictions comes to override that dreaded fear of letting go. Even the most rigid, obstinate, ignorant or self-absorbed in stupor will succumb to flashes of insight into what is not working in their lives, and either choose, or be forced to look at new ways and inspirations in how to fix it.

    Tuesday’s Aries Moon will pass through this highly agitated point (24°♈30′) accentuating nicely what we are talking about here. Those who are highly sensitive to others will reach their limit now, having an aversely negative reaction to whatever is bothersome or irritating, breaking away, often without much warning or even much thought. Needless to say that it is wise to be on the highest levels of awareness about ourselves.

    Our threshold of tolerance for nonsense from this point forward becomes incredibly low, so be cautious that either you, or others in your world do not cause a sudden ‘riot’, in a rash retaliation to something that they abruptly realise isn’t working for them any more. The Leo Sun has an uncomfortable way of bringing the drama out into the open.

    With this ‘grind and irritation’ being the main theme all around us now, it is advisable for all who care to stay sensible, present and aware to find themselves their quiet little personal chamber, cubicle, corner, dungeon, tower, etc. where they can isolate themselves a little and work in stillness and solitude on their ‘being in present time’ practice.

    With the Sun now in Leo, there can be a lot of undue ‘heroics’ around, which in the lowest, most egotistical expression can become proud, belligerent battles for domination and dominion. Let us employ the higher ray of Leo consciousness and be radiantly aware that this is not about you – this is about ‘it’ (it’ being the ‘walking our talk with the greater Spirit‘).

    Intercepting the excruciating pressures of the linear, structured world is going to take some technique, tools and practice. It will not happen by ‘accident’.

    Make change in your world a matter of conscious choices, not as a blind reaction to hapless events or ‘accidents’ now.

    Be present,
    And have an amazing week,
    Blessings xx

    Cosmic Update / The Saturn-Uranus Principle: What time is Now?

    http://angstoic.com/2015/10/the-satu...at-time-is-it/



    Quote In an astounding coincidence, Saturn's third and final sesqui-square (135°) to Uranus (Oct 2015) at the same degree (SA-03°Sg05'/ UR-18°Ar05'Rx) as when the pair met on May 4, 2015. That time it was Uranus who was retrograde. The combination of these two very contrary forces now (July-August) come within 00° 22' of a sustained sesquisquare. This is because both of these heavy planets are stationing. Uranus is set to go retrograde (July 29), whilst Saturn is about to go direct (Aug 13). Their hard aspect combination is never easy, but their final together creates a sore point for those whose natal charts are directly affected by this transit.
    ⚡️COSMIC TRIBE UPDATE⚡️
    ARIES MOON conjunct URANUS, sqq SATURN
    Emotional tensions are building to an all-time high this month, with sudden bursts of strained energy emanating out of the unconscious into the world around us.
    The Moon, ruler of moods and emotions connects with Uranus (Ouranos), ruler of the skies, to bring us all into the current moment. As most of us are trying to make sense of this linear, structured world (Saturn) we are reminded that we are trapped in a prism - a device which holds us in order, but it denies, delays and frustrates our ability to experience ourselves in the present tense.
    In the 3D world of fear, judgment, anger there is no time for anything but a frantic struggle 'fix' and firm up our situation. As we are witnessing, this world seems battered, hopelessly out of touch and morbidly forlorn.
    Time to cut ties with it. It's not working for us.
    We need a new way.
    A sustained hold by stationing Uranus over Saturn this next month brings realisation to humanity that these ongoing structures are no longer sustainable. Great inhibitions and irritations build gradually, and the reaction will be to lash out unpredictably, often without much thought of the consequences. This has the power to wreak all kinds of emotional havoc on those around us, and in a cumulative sense, add to the collective social unrest.
    Are you feeling annoyed? Stressed by the inconsistencies and failings of the 'real' world?
    You need to come to the present moment, fast. Somehow, you need to summon the discipline necessary to view the failures or the dysfunctions of your world as an opportunity to come up with an innovative solution. Avoid acting in rash, immature ways, understanding that these actions only fuel an emotional war that not only threatens to destroy your own peace, but the lives of those around you.
    Hold all action for a moment, breathe.
    Come to this present instance.
    Embrace the god of spontaneity and insight.
    Ask for a new way to handle things.
    Let go of the old way, it isn't going to work for you any more.
    Act with vision.
    Liberate yourself from the prism of repetition.

    MERCURY / CHIRON

    Quote http://angstoic.com/2016/03/mercury-chironsouth-node/
    Notice the pull now to reconnect with those who wish to discuss matters of healing, or bridge the broken pathways of communication that have only held us stuck in an infernal rut of psychic bitterness and dismay.
    What is being created here, by some exceptionally sensitive individuals, are some unlikely channels to relay spiritual messages that we most sorely need to hear.
    Will the ego subside long enough for these messages to come through and permeate our battered senses?
    Among the escalating madness of our exterior world (or perhaps because of it) we have a chance to leave behind the toxic residue of mental anguish and to listen. It’s time to rise above the limitations that we place on one another with our heavy, rigid thoughts.
    People do make mistakes;
    Say unwise things;
    Then they hold onto these without ever relenting to unlock the pain they choose to store away.
    And life’s too short to carry grudges.
    Someone may now be able to relay ideas that come directly from spiritual dimensions. Communication through angels or beings beyond the physical realms helps us connect to others in some uncanny ways, at the most propitious time They bring us closer into contact with those who really need our help, or maybe someone comes along to help shake us out of an awful rut.
    Hope the message to leave behind any ideas that keep you stuck in the past manages to reach you.

    The Cosmic Dancer
    Quote What's going on in the world hey?
    It's all gone a little crazy, and frankly, I'm a little delighted.
    The month ahead, kicked off by Uranus (Cosmic Bus) turning retrograde, asks us to 'look outside the box', whilst keeping all limbs close to the body.
    [No baggage thanks].
    Enjoy your monthly blueprint for the journey ahead of us...“Love said to me, ‘You are not crazy enough, you do not fit this house.’ I went and became crazy; crazy enough to be in chains.”
    ~ Rumi

    On the surface, it would appear as if the world has now clearly split between the mundane versus the unusual, the conventional versus the bizarre, the 'normal' versus the 'bat**** crazy'...

    On which side do you see yourself?

    Regardless - as irritating as this situation may be to either side, neither seems totally comfortable with its own kind either.

    What's going on?

    Seems like the contrast of differences, as outlandishly freaky as these are becoming, are equally as repugnant as our similarities.

    Blandness and weirdness, side by side.
    And every moment, you're forced to decide...

    Such is the delightful absurdity that envelops us all in the month ahead.

    TRIBE MESSAGE – AUGUST FORECAST
    Did July deliver perhaps one of the most tense months that we have seen for a long time? To many, it may have seemed like it was never going to end as the stationing Uranus (now retrograde) became locked into an uncomfortable gridlock with Saturn (also stationing mid-August). It appears to many as if time is standing still, like some extraordinary force is calling us to come to the present moment in order to deal with an increasing discontentment about the state of our increasingly unstable affairs - a force that holds our old, established patterns against a possible new way of being. Many critical transits this month, including the continued Saturn/Neptune square, its alignment to the Nodes, the Leo New Moon, Aquarius Full Moon, Mars finally leaving Scorpio to later conjunct Saturn, Mercury's retrograde forming a rare, 3-week conjunction with Jupiter, and much, much more... These are not ordinary times - by any modern recollection. We are, indeed, living in interesting times.

    SUN in conjunct NEPTUNE
    August 1, 2015

    Quote
    And then there's days when, under extreme vulnerability, we get it all out of proportion. Confusion ensues.

    Perhaps this last week has a been tiring, emotions up and down, direction seems unclear and tensions wearing thin upon the body manifest as physical/mental weaknesses and sensitivities. Our whole vitality/decision making faculty becomes abominably skewed.

    Just like diffracted sunlight being dispersed in random, indiscriminate directions, arising misconceptions easily turn into misunderstandings.
    Fears of feeling cheated and undermined can make us weak and ineffectual, and all attempts to work things out just end up further sullying the matter .

    Frustrating.

    Just LEAVE it.
    Go time out somewhere.

    Things are NOT going to work right now.

    A good day just to vacate. Mind and body.

    LEO New Moon at 10°♌58′, August 2, 20:45 UTC

    Quote Only moments after Mars leaves Scorpio to enter Sagittarius, the intuitive, instinctively creative and rather playful pussycat Leo Moon, joins forces by passing before the Leo Sun, whose proud, self-assertive and magnificently radiant corona creates the most promising, most gloriously spectacular moment of our lunar month.

    New Moons generally kick off a brand new personal creative venture for each of us. If the New Moon degree aligns to a personal point or planet, or is in an angular house, this is an important month for you. Since the gentle Luna light is completely absent from our night skies, it leaves us all to ponder our infiniteness in the mystique of the dark and starry night. What new developments may come and what, indeed, is held in store for us in the exciting month ahead?

    Leo rules the heart, the body’s central organ, whose calibration to world around us determines just how much we will invest, and how much we will withhold (fixed) of our own integral spirit (fire).

    This New Moon’s trine to Saturn (in Sagittarius) helps determine and define just how much we will apply or ignore our fears of being hurt, or caught out, or humiliated in the face of what we stand for – the courage and conviction we will show for those things in which we we believe.Leo is always matter of integrity, and the Saturn trine is about standing true to what we believe.

    Since our beliefs are largely a result of the emotional investment that we place on our ideas, this is a time when we will ask whether we are satisfied with the story we play out for others. Is it our our story, or a role we have been selected, trained, programmed or ordained to play?

    Are we living a life of authenticity – one that is generated from our heart centre, or is this the time where we begin to unfold our own unique myth?

    We are now challenged to demonstrate our passion for those concepts that we may adopt as uniquely ours. In the greater scheme of things, the only thing we may regret now is that we are not living our life boldly enough, that we do not invest enough of our heart, not loving enough.

    Nothing else really counts at all.



    Leo is ruled by the Sun – the star that is central to our Solar system. Stars, by nature, are creative power sources. Exuding their warm, loving glow, illuminating us with light, they are magnetic and their electrifying presence infuses animation and life into all those who gravitate to orbit around them. To express yourself in Leo mode means to be in love with life, to embellish the beauty and joy in all of those around you with your warm, gregarious heart, to dance with them, make music with them, engage in a little drama and a little poetry and song with all that circles around.

    Life is an ensemble with Leo, whose conscious, proud, confident, generous, magnificently regal ‘champion of the people’ (the benevolent king/queen), understands that whilst they are the centre of creation, their experience is not necessarily only about them. In giving light and love, they honour that everyone around them is capable of expressing their own star power, acting as co-creators.

    The lower frequency of Leo, whose self-conscious, personally ambitious, snobbish, vain, excessively needy and domineering ways generally result in the largely unsavoury dictatorial tyrant who feels threatened by the power and sovereignty of others. It is these who are most likely to become humanised – humbled and humiliated by a quincunx to Neptune, a spiritualising force which seeks to defray, undermine and debilitate those humbugs who insist on acting out of hubris rather than from love and kindness.

    This year, we see a different, more evolved Leo emerging on this auspicious New Moon. It is one whose resolve is to stand firm, to stand certain and determined that when practising a mindful, wilfully meditative approach (one might even say a ‘proud sense of humility’), they also stand to accomplish much more for their kind than if they would force their rigid will upon others belligerently, or unyielding, inflexible ways.

    One thing is certain – those who aspire to shine brightest among us during this time will set their firm intention that they will uphold and maintain their integrity – not as a need or desire to receive love and admiration from others. Those who aspire to attain true sovereignty will not seek to be respected by those who love them, but to how well they can demonstrate that they can shine without them.

    The Week Ahead – 8-14 August
    Quote ✺ (T) MERCURY conjunct N.NODE - desire to connect, discuss, analyse)
    ✺ (W) QUARTER MOON @18°♏32' - fight to the death (even if it kills me)
    ✺ (W) MERCURY trine PLUTO - sharp, deep & thorough judgment
    ✺ (F) JUPITER opp CHIRON - torn between the shame and the lesson to be learned
    ✺ (Sa) Saturn goes Direct - Judgment ready to be passed down
    ✺ (Sa) JUPITER quincunx URANUS - reigning in the weirdness for the sake of getting on

    With all outer planets (♄ ♅ ♆ ♇) and Chiron currently in retrograde, there is plenty of soul searching going on. It has been a tumultuous few months and as Saturn prepares to go direct, many of our recent, most inexplicable and rather strange experiences will be questioned. They will be formally judged and attempts will be made by all the experts to fit them into a proper structure, squeeze them back into a box as it were, in the hope that by containing anything we found revolting we may better understand how and why our system has fallen into such a disarray.
    Two planets in particular are still locking horns....



    FIRST QUARTER MOON @18°♏32' - Wednesday Aug 10 18:22 UTC

    With the SUN in LEO squaring the Scorpio Moon we are talking about one intensely charged encounter. Whatever your intention with last week’s New Moon – however your intent to shine upon others by being your best possible self, now comes the first real test: A staunch reminder that to make it, you’re going to have to prove that you not only have the passion and the temperament, but just how well can you maintain your composure and control that temper in the face of conflict…

    Are you the real deal, or are you prancing about like a pussy?

    The objective with both these fixed signs is to be on top – to win. Neither likes to stand down – entering the contest to lose is not an option. Emotions could run high these next couple of days, and if tempers flare, matters could easily escalate beyond the point of humiliation or repair.

    They say that pride comes just before a fall, and if you sense pride entering this debate then know too that this could become a vicious struggle to the end.

    High moral grounds, quick judgement upon things we barely understand, grandiose standards, to which one doesn’t meet themselves, fiercely defended biases, heated & dramatic power struggles and scathing games of oneupmanship…

    Someone is bound to be stung. Nobody wins if it turns nasty.

    Needless to say, if you see any of that lower end, immature, unevolved ego-based matter then back right out immediately. Even as a spectator, total descent from grace is not an easy things to see.

    Very few instances where drama is deemed absolutely necessary, and always with poetic or creative license.

    Why would we need the drama in our lives right now?

    Well, integrity needs to be tested for authenticity – the conscious masculine will perform with heart, not dick.

    Moral: Don’t be a d--k.

    Leo/ Quarter Moon in Scorpio reading

    http://angstoic.com/2016/08/leoleo-rising-12/
    Quote Seems you’re fighting two contrary forces within you, locked in a mean, internal conflict as you struggle to achieve some love and affection for yourself this week.

    On the surface you are hankering to draw much hungered attention towards your identity, whilst meanwhile your more personal, instinctive side summons you to focus on your private, domestic, family obligations – aspects of you that are screaming for your attention or to pay your dues to their intrinsic needs. These may be begging or hurting for your love, understanding and support during these challenging times, and to make amends for more neglectful days gone by.
    However, you may come to argue that you have a life all of your own, that nourishing the desires of your personal identity are just as important, which tends to create resentment over seeming acts of childish selfishness on your part, or your emotional immaturity to acknowledge your family needs.

    You will be challenged now to try to integrate these two seemingly disparate areas without bringing in too much guilt or shame into the discussion. Also stay mindful that you don’t slip into one of your famous spells of self-proud evasiveness or utter self-destruction by burning away your bridges to past ties. If you attend to both your own needs and to those on the home front evenly, you might just manage to achieve some guilt-free personal fulfilment. This actually helps to give others what is theirs and renders you with what is rightfully yours. One supports the other.

    It’s preferable that you find ways to express yourself that give you the best possible opportunity to express your tender sensitivity and intuitive understanding. Empathy is the key to unlocking any problem here. The best solution might be that you keep to yourself, focusing on cultivating as much warm-hearted presence as possible. Although the force of your personality and your ambition to be and do something important now is mighty, you would be wise (and most comfortable) in keeping a low-key profile at this point, at least until you have explored your feelings. Finding out what actually nourishes and supports you, and what triggers you into unconscious spells of self-destructiveness when you feel most insecure can only be done with a bit of quiet, (and courageous) self-reflection.

    Even though you may come across as very independent and freedom-oriented now, you have to admit that you unconsciously rely quite heavily on others for support. Neglecting this truth could cause a painful little demolition, one that holds you from understand that all your strength and confidence, in fact, comes from within and sometimes it is tending and listening to those closest to you who can make you realise (after all your brave face gestures) just how emotionally vulnerable you are to the harsh criticism and abrasiveness of the outside world when you coldly deny their support.

    Stay buoyant and truly shine by managing to keep those homefires burning (don’t burn down the house).
    MOON conjunct LILITH in SCORPIO
    Quote No matter how much you are being triggered, how much your fear of abandonment or rejection possesses you to behave in ways that make you lash out catastrophically toward others, understand that these negative reactions are mostly due to the inner child's conditioning to a world where attachment and expectations from others is equated with love.
    If you can just pull yourself aside for a moment, sit with your shadow, acknowledge that your insecurities rise not out of loving yourself too little, and others too much, but from the love you demand from others, in spite of your inability to truly love yourself, without judgement.
    Come now.
    Come together with yourself.
    Accept your demons.
    Nobody else has got this for you.

    MERCURY 15°♍25' trine PLUTO♑
    Quote We are seeing much going on around us today, many details come streaming in. The subconscious force of taking a more mature, responsible attitude acts as a divine blessing to do something useful, purposeful with these thoughts and ideas.
    Notice just how much deeper, more exhaustive your powers of observation (especially of trifles & trivialities) allows you to see into something, right down to the core root of its primary usefulness.
    How is what you see useful to you? How can you use it?
    It's often through our focused and persistent probing into the seemingly insignificant details that we uncover the true nature of our reality, and see opportunities to break down any limitations.

    13 Aug: Saturn Stations to go direct @09°♐47′
    SATURN NOW STATIONARY @9°♐46' (direct at 08:46 UTC)
    Reality is looking suspiciously ordinary as TIME appears to be standing perfectly still now....

    Quote Saturn’s journey inward began at the end of March, after the 2nd square to Jupiter, which sent us all into a flip flop journey of truth-seeking circum-analysis and study in trying to determine what on earth was going on with our reality. The two giants remained locked in square till the end of May, Jupiter’s rulership over growth and expansion becoming bleaker and more contracted over this time.
    Then, in June, the master of reality became locked into another square with Neptune, ruler of illusion and alternative realms. This conflict continues.

    Saturn’s constrictive rulership over 3D-structured reality mandates that all our thoughts, opinions, beliefs, and worldviews be strictly based on lifetimes of experience, study, and rational, objective analysis, not on premises, hypotheses, dreams, delusions and speculation.

    However, when the old devil spun back into retrograde, his whole auditing process of ‘reality-formation’ became geared into a highly subjective selection process – the fact-gathering cogs of his device providing an understanding (with Saturn Rx in Sadge) that determines reality based only on what conveniently reinforces his chosen preconception or persuasions. This means that his reality system is heavily swayed and skewed by personal biases; a selective understanding of what we ‘know’ is real, based upon a tendency to search out or interpret information that only confirms his preconceptions. This, ultimately leads to statistical errors.

    For instance, if we belong to the fraternity that believes that ‘Robin Hood’ is a baron criminal (not some good guy) we will only seek out and hear instances that incriminate, denounce his character and post him as a villain. We will dispute, deny, even ignore any nonsense that he is a folk hero, or people’s legend. We will not stand to listen to any reports or news that he is a ‘stealing from the rich to give to the poor’, we will only seek evidence to build a case that he is nothing other than a petty thief, a heartless outlaw whose offenses against the system only serve to disrupt the established order etc.

    When Saturn goes retro, everybody has their version of reality, based on their confirmatory bias.

    Through the highs and lows of these past few months, as Jupiter and Saturn remained in square, our beliefs were increasingly brought into question as we were forced to seriously question our morals, ethics, laws and judgements, the unwoven fabric of our society’s goals and ambitions to get along together as a tribe against the constructs of time and space.

    What many of us had found through this time is that growth in the physical world is not as unlimited as previously advertised – not infinite as such. Through a greater, ever-increasing number of disappointments or delays (and later, as Saturn started to square Neptune in June) we had slowly become acquainted with the world of much disillusionment and pessimism, becoming increasingly suspicious that the promises, the guarantees and hocus pocus of the exterior world may inexplicably be incapable of making our dreams and aspirations really work out as we expected.

    Did we take too much of a slanted view on how we choose to see reality?

    So what to expect when the retrograde ‘arbiter of 3D reality’ finalises his appraisal (Rx since 29 March), and decides “it’s TIME” to get cracking forward with his big fat ugly stick of judgment?

    Here we see a different kind of fact-gathering, a strong case being built against any individual or group who has stretched their wild intentions, gone way too far, got too greedy, arrogant or unwise, forgot their manners, rules and ‘rightful social place’ in the pecking order – basically serving as a timely reminder that the 3D world is really not a place to be messed with – that there are rules and regulations that must be followed, and no shortcuts or misgivings will be allowed to slide without severe restrictions being imposed.

    Saturn will try to make a solid case now.

    Of course, the ruler of this establishment is being severely tested this month – a sesquisquare to Uranus sees the establishment fighting desperately the hold things in place against disruptive and increasingly revolutionary activity, and towards the end of this month and into September, Saturn faces his last stand with the ever-rising floods and tidal waves of Neptune, which threaten to completely erode the cliff face, seeing the old man plunge, head first, into the sea of sorrow and depression.

    It will come to be seen that ‘absolute reality’ is just another version, of another story, and no matter how many join in on the consensus, the real truth remains elusive if we continue to pass arbitrary judgments.

    Those of you still holding fearfully to laws, agreements & belief systems that do not serve a more compassionate, more forgiving, accepting and inclusive world will certainly know how it may feel to become beleaguered and besieged by an unknown, surreptitious and invisible force that threatens to completely leave you submerged in a sea of dismay and disillusionment.

    Dreams must either come true by applying a healthy sense of realism, or they will be met with rude awakening, as early as the end of this month.

    REALITY CHECK yourself.

    Quote ✺ (T) VENUS conjunct N.NODE (13°♍30′) – openness to being ‘nice’
    ✺ (T) SUN quincunx CHIRON – reevaluating one’s ‘story’
    ✺ (Th) SUN trine URANUS – an awakening identity
    ✺ (Th) VENUS trine PLUTO – we all need a love resurrection

    ✺ (F) MERCURY opp CHIRON – doubting the supernatural, raises discussion on alternative healing etc
    ✺ (F) MERCURY quincunx URANUS – any analysis fails to quite describe it



    In a week where Saturn turns direct after a 4-month stint in retrograde, all attention turns toward trying to work out what the hell is going on in our reality, what to believe and what not to believe.

    Saturn’s rulership over 3D-structured reality mandates that all our thoughts, opinions, beliefs, and worldviews are based on lifetimes of experience, study, and rational, objective analysis. However, when the old devil went into retrograde (March 29, his usual auditing process of ‘reality-formation’ became geared using very subjectively selective sources of fact gathering. A kind of wilful ignorance became the frenzy feeding the ‘status quo’, a motivated sense of reasoning that we prefer a certain reality over the truth.

    It is mostly our tactical stupidity which has lead us to overlook what is obviously going on (from a 4D, objective perspective).

    Hello people…

    Your reality (whichever you fancied to faithfully chose to follow) is suffering a tremendous meltdown. And your media (mind information) sources have aided and abetted whatever beliefs you chose to espouse yourself to. Choose your reality, then swallow it down, wholesale. Pay later.

    When Saturn goes retro, everybody has their version of reality, based on their confirmatory bias.

    But now Saturn is going direct. And them ‘reality’ chickens are coming home to roost…

    Do I sound like a bastard, telling you this? [that’s the voice of Saturn, right here already]. I’ll be talking a lot about Saturn in these coming weeks. To some, it will sound more like I’m reading out the riot act. To others (especially those following me on the Cosmic Bus), it will sound more like I’m reading the old man his last rites.

    These are phenomenal times, unprecedented by any lot of folks before us, and if you are blessed enough to be alive and reading this right now, consider just how truly sanctified and consecrated a human being you are. This is not an accident that we are here, talking about the Lord of the Rings, like that. And i’m not talking Tolkien either… This is more real than reality TV.

    Saturn has been in his retro shadow since the start of this year, [see more here], and will not leave the Rx shadow zone till mid-November. This means that any pressures or difficulties that may we have endured in our ‘getting of wisdom’ – through Saturn’s excruciating obstacle-course of limitation, separation, frustration and delay, will now be repeated until we fully get the point. Much of the 3D Saturnian suffering comes from our strong identification to physical form and material attachments. We are tested to see whether we are clinging unnecessarily to old, stupid, outdated or destructive beliefs’, and whether these are absolutely necessary to our ‘karmic journey’ or not…

    …that’s for those who are into karma and all that.

    What we are seeing now, which is quite profound really, is that certain people – ‘individuals’ of all kinds – are being awakened. Enough to know that they are not going to feed into this ‘karma’ nonsense any further. Observe our kids, for instance, who are slowly phasing out of being affected at all by the dramas and limitations of fear, judgement, hoarding of materials and harbouring insecurities.

    A world without fear?

    No way! Sounds out of control!!

    Shut up. If you are reading this, then you have already heard of meditation. It’s a powerful tool, and it’s total 4D stuff. It’s like the opposite to pre-meditation, which is 3D’s idea of coming to any party, and moment pre-pared, pre-scribed and pre-judgementalised. Seems like that way isn’t getting us the desired results any longer. Meditation, the art of intercepting linear, 3D time (and all of its conditions) and coming into the present moment is the key to the new way.

    Yes, a new way is coming… and it’s so exciting.

    I’ll be spending more time talking about this stuff during the week – many of my clients and those of you who are members of the ‘Cosmic Tribe’ are already in the loop. There are special tools which I will be introducing, and coming back to video (this week), just to pick the pace up again.

    Mars comes to conjunct Saturn in the next couple of weeks (24th August). Saturn, you old devil – stand still – I got you right in my crosshairs.

    Full Moon at 25°52′ AQUARIUS, August 18, 09:28 UTC
    http://angstoic.com/2016/08/full-moo...ius-august-18/

    Quote It’s Full Moon time again. Time to do our ritual dance under the glorious moonlit night sky.
    Of course, astrologically Full Moons are Sun/Moon oppositions – a high-water time on our lunar calendar, where the world of feelings☽ becomes heightened, in diametric contrast, or contradiction to our conscious will☉.

    The monthly polarisation between these two most personal astrological ‘lights’, usually highlights certain rising challenges which must be observed in our lives, specifically flavoured by the prevailing themes symbolised by the current sun/moon sign polarity.

    With the Sun shimmering proudly in its domicile Leo against the emotionally aloof Aquarius Moon, we may get to see the following dichotomy of themes playing out very visibly in our world:

    Leo

    Aquarius

    Me

    We

    I rule (autocracy)

    people power (social democracy)

    my decision (I know what’s best)

    let’s put it to the vote (diversity)

    check out my achievements

    it’s a team effort, dude

    Artist

    Scientist

    Lover

    Friend

    Master of the universe

    Free Agent

    These prevailing themes must be either dealt with in a direct, head-to-head fashion, or become mediated, somehow be integrated into our conscious/unconscious behavioural balance. Therefore it becomes a test to our level of maturity on how well we can consciously respond to our instinctive side. Something in our behaviour has to give in order for a personal evolution to occur.

    [IMG]/http://angstoic.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/aq-FM.png[/IMG]

    With Uranus in Aries sextile the Moon and trine the Sun, the usual stress of the opposition is eased and supported by innovatively exciting ways to achieve our desired balance. Much insight is coming through to inspire us to take action that, though provocative and new, will help to break us out of old patterns.

    The Moon’s quincunx to the Mercury/Jupiter conjunction in Virgo (creating a yod with Uranus) is highly significant, ushering forth many surprising new analytical skills and insights from the subconscious which will facilitate breakthroughs and awakenings, both in science and spirituality. This will tend to benefit the individual more than the collective, manifesting as a personal determination to cut away from establishment, exterior organisation and order and focusing more on one’s own wit, power and authority to make decisions for oneself.

    Since Mercury/Jupiter also opposes that shamanic teacher, healer and guide Chiron, we are also becoming introduced to the alternative dimensions of spirit and the sensitive, psychic realms. These are being brought through to us via relationships which awaken our rational minds to that of the imagination and fantasy.

    So the the usual contrast that forces us to see and balance our more expressive, confident, proud Leo side, against our idealistic, egalitarian Aquarian side becomes enriched and inspired. Bearing in mind of course, that the T-square currently formed by Venus/Neptune/Nodes to Saturn, which does create difficulties as we seek to express ourselves intimately with others, yet feel restricted or blocked, psychologically cut off or wanting to withdraw. This is a theme that carries into Eclipse season next month, and what this Full Moon is telling us is that we need to take the gifts of innovation and inspiration to make personal change in order to transcend the grief that the 3D structured world is trying desperately to impose.

    It is in many ways laying the final grounding for a revolutionary approach to self-management, relationships and government.

    As in every opposition, the tendency will most probably be to espouse, or relate to one side (Leo/Aquarius) more than the other. Whilst we may hold sympathy for the other side, often projecting those themes onto someone in our exterior world, we must remain observant that these are both elements within us that now must be brought into balance and become integrated.

    If we do not make an effort to bring these themes into symmetry within our world, to help improve our situation, then we may come to a challenging impasse during this time.

    So how will it affect your world?

    Personally:

    The struggle to find a true, authentic sense of independence and self-sufficiency will cause you to look deep inside for answers now. This can become an extraordinary opportunity for self-examination through which you may come to realise that what you have found deep in your heart somehow inspires you to reach out and bring great hope and leadership for great change in peoples’ lives.

    If your imagination does become activated by this full moon, it is in raw, boundless, and abstract ways invoking a burning ambition to lead – an inner strength, whose futuristic visions come to cavalcade out of your wildest dreams and into your waking reality.

    The challenge is whether you can you rise out of your self-centred childishness, and act in brave yet humble, effortless, understated ways, It is this mature flair for inventive, forward-thinking that attracts others to your way.

    In relationships:

    Whilst it’s important to acknowledge any limitations between yourself and others, on this full moon it is equally as important to know and appreciate your many endowments together. This is a time to be open yet firm when blending your shared ideals in ways which show compassionate and kindness to all. Yes, it is important to exhibit creative and innovative forms of expression, but equally important to allow others to move around in your creations.

    Love relationships may take on a more aloof, detached manner in this, and where there is no compromise or space there may be deals to just break it off – a kind of impasse in which any rigidity of egos can no longer be tolerated.

    Where there is some cohesion, some element of trust, there is enormous opportunity to work intuitively together to enhance and improve every situation, both for yourself and others. The main benefits of being able to adapt to the growing pressures and changes of our times is that we help one another to evolve tremendously in the way that we relate. By taking a progressive step away from any ostentatious or arrogant behaviour and treating each other kindly, as peers – equals in every way.

    Socio-politically:
    The struggle between Autocracy vs Democracy

    On a greater level, we reach a high-water mark in our politics, seeing a striking contrast through the social division that is fast gripping the globe between two extreme types of rulership. Autocracy literally means ruling in one’s own authoritative way, as opposed to democracy, where decisions are formed using a group consultative/electoral process.
    However, let’s be utterly real here. Even in the most advanced democracies, where freedom for all is centred around the principles of capitalism, the general situation seems like it’s edging closer and closer to producing a rigged outcome every time, favouring only the elite – those who rule by force, privilege, power and prestige. Is this ultimately how public rulership was meant to be? Is Leo, by its very nature going to always triumph over the masses in an autocratic way?
    Just check out what’s happening in the ‘United’ States of America – supposedly the greatest democracy in the world. With a looming election in November, the country looks more like two tribes preparing to go to war. Neither side promises peace, looking like it’s either going to proliferate or worsen current conditions or send the country into civil divide. Not really what one would realistically describe as a thriving democracy about to go into the hands of a trusted, hope-inspiring new management, is it?
    Yes, America has been blessed to have had some brilliant democratic leaders over its time, especially when they needed them most. It seems like the country has an infatuation with Leo leaders (both Clinton and Obama have Leo Sun, George W has Leo Rising). But times ahead are looking more and more restless and civically disempowering for the general US population unless they can employ some innovative new measures to give all citizens more of a voice. As it stands, basic US social liberties and standards of living have this once great nation currently ranked 10th globally.
    India, the world’s most over-populated democracy still suffers great poverty and injustice due to a crippling caste system that refuses to die out. It seems the elitism at the top refuses to pay privilege forward to its ‘people’. It currently ranks #47 on the Quality of Life Index.
    Over in Europe, leaders have ushered in over a million Muslim refugees in just less than two years. Grief-stricken individuals who are geographically and culturally displaced from war-ravaged Middle Eastern countries are already creating unprecedented cultural tensions and inequities of all kinds between people. Social problems of ethnic/economic discord are creating such schisms which often erupt into random, spontaneous acts of violence and terror, and extremism is on the rise there.
    Meanwhile, in Britain, their leaders have fallen after the population has democratically elected to leave the European Union, preferring to move into a more isolationist economy. Instantly their trade market took a hit. Greece (birthplace of democracy) attempted this last year but the EU ruling class insisted that the Greeks owed too much money to pull out. That matter has sent that nation’s people into further austerity and social unrest. Tensions continue to mount there, and other countries like Spain, Ireland, Cyprus, Italy, Portugal are well over their heads in debt against their sovereignty.
    In Brazil, the third largest democracy in the world, currently hosting the Olympics, it’s been a shambles of corruption, where leaders were allegedly taking billions of dollars of bribe money. That nation is now being run by a caretaker while they figure out what they’re going to do.

    Add to this the phenomenon where technology companies in Silicon Valley, which began with young, progressive visionaries to create equality and opportunity for all have now amassed so much power (economically and politically) for their owners that they are threatening to wipe out entire economies. Just as Apple’s iTunes had effectively trashed the music industry in the last decade, Netflix is gradually watering down Hollywood and the entire movie business. Uber is eliminating old-school cabbies and couriers, whilst Google, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube etc are gradually superseding TV, radio and the printed press. Amazon has already killed off the book business and is now gunning down specialist trading stores, supermarkets, and retailers of electronic goods.

    What’s the common thread here? It’s the dysfunction of political, economic, media and academic elites. Whilst they may draw their power from a system that is inherently based on providing equal opportunity for all, they soon go too far, eventually progressing towards the belief that they know what’s best for the masses, basically dictating all future direction without consideration to the future effects upon their constituents.

    Is this sustainable? How long can the collective human spirit endure the suppression of the individual’s autonomous right? Can the individual survive if they choose to no longer play into these almost defunct, so-called “democratic” systems?

    The more these systems persist to rule by outright mandate, the more the complacency continues over what is actually happening to our basic individual freedoms. In the sixties they staged protest at the university level. Where are today’s bright young minds? Are they becoming empowered or sedated by all this remarkable technology?

    Many of you may ask where all this is heading. Is our blindness as ‘consumers’ of goods and our incessant clutching for ‘security’ creating a massive imbalance?

    Such are the issues of this Aquarius Full Moon. They become heightened as we head into eclipse season.

    Ultimately this is not just about power, or money. This is about the right to decide. Leo wants to be the one who makes all the decisions because it feels like it knows best. Never wrong, always right, and does not like to be told otherwise. Aquarius has a problem with absolute right. It begs to differ. I pleads to get a the consensus of the whole tribe. It creates movement and protest to the contrary in order to bring about change.

    Change, which when resisted by both fixed signs eventually leads either hard swings into totalitarian rule or social revolutions and anarchy.

    As it looks in most part of the civilised world, the more absolute and unyielding modern rulership becomes, the more we distance ourselves from any promise of any immediate true democracy (rule by the people), republic (elected rulers), or even a meritocracy (rule by your achievements).

    Is this a case where kakistocracy (rule by the worst, most unfit to rule) will finally force the individual to seek an alternative, to transcend the need for all exterior forms of government altogether.

    Much maturity in needed to proceed…



    Meanwhile, here are some ways that you can be a true hero:

    Save Yourself

    Keep good, clear boundaries in any relationship that may lack these, and restore better care for yourself.

    Honour a commitment to yourself, whether it’s to exercise, eat healthier, or make a small change in your behaviour.

    Replace any negative, self-defeating thoughts with positive, self-affirming ones—and believe them.

    Persist with something you’re resolved to give up, knowing that what matters most is your commitment to the journey.

    Improve the way you deal with criticism, receive it with an open-mind, without self-judgment.

    Listen and trust your intuition to guide you instead of depending on someone else’s opinion about what’s best for you.

    Forgive yourself for making that mistake, giving yourself another chance to see, enjoy, and appreciate what’s right in front of you.

    Find a healthier coping mechanism to deal with emotional pain—like deep meditation or taking a walk—instead of doing something self-destructive.

    Tend to your own needs, creating more balance in your life.

    Empower yourself to get into an activity with something you enjoy instead of becoming overwhelmed with persistent mental chatter and mindless distractions.

    Save Others

    Show up for someone who needs help – moving, packing, or doing anything that’s easier with an extra set of hands.

    Ask someone who is going through a hard time if there is any way you can help to lighten their load and then follow through.

    Plan, organise, or assist with a celebration or event for someone you love and/or value.

    Support someone in a charity fundraiser, online or offline.

    Maintain your composure in a difficult situation by responding calmly to keep a small issue from escalating into something much bigger.

    Speak up for someone who otherwise might not have a voice, or may be too scared to use it.

    Offer your skills and talents to help someone, whether that means assisting a friend with their resume, or cleaning their kitchen.

    Offer a random act of kindness to someone without expecting anything in return.

    Give something of yours to someone else if you think they need it more than you.

    Refer someone to a trusted resource, group, or event that could be life-changing for them.

    Save the World

    Shop consciously to support businesses that follow ethical practices.

    Become conscious of your own environmental impact, your carbon footprint

    Make a microloan through an organization like Kiva to help and empower people around the globe.

    Recycle. (You can recycle a lot more than you may think!)

    Start a wave of good turns. Do something kind for someone and tell that person to return the favour to someone else.

    Give away your old clothes to a brotherhood society instead of throwing them away.

    Volunteer your time to help people in need.

    Donate blood or marrow to someone whose life may depend on it. (Enquire with your doctor or local hospital.)

    Fully research a charity organization that you believe in and then tell three people about it.

    Follow Gandhi’s advice and “Be the change you want to see in the world.”

    Do you have anything to add to the list?

    Good luck with all that, and may you have a wonderful Full Moon.

    WEEKEND AHEAD: Aug 19-21

    Quote Main transits this weekend:

    ✺ (F) ♄ ⊼ Vesta – Devotion not sitting well with one’s obligations

    ✺ (F) ☿ ☍ Chiron – Introduction to alternative realities

    ✺ (F) ☿ ⊼ ♅ – Words cannot describe unusual insights

    ✺ (Sa) Chiron -☿/♃ – Activating analysis into unconscious realms

    ✺ (M) ☿☌♃ (26°♍13′) – New cycle of analysis and integration

    ✺ (M) ☉ in ♍ – Careful and diligent expression


    As the SUN now finalises its journey through Leo, our experience with:
    domineering persons,
    themes around self-confidence,
    tapping into formative and creative energies,
    lessons in self-assuredness
    a striving to hold more creative control in the execution of our own ideas,
    organisation of others,
    leadership,
    efforts to attain advancement in life,
    patronage and protection of those in our charge
    comes to completion. How was your experience in all these areas over the last 30 days? [Sun moves into Virgo on Monday 22, 16:39 UTC]

    The MOON sweeps through Pisces, triggering the MARS/SATURN conjunction, then the SATURN/NEPTUNE square, heightening awareness of the need to restrain impulsiveness towards escapism or victim light behaviour, particularly as an angry reaction to rules or restrictions. If not handled consciously these may result into a dependency or drugs or depression to escape the harsh realities of life and responsibility.

    MERCURY’s applying conjunction to JUPITER in Virgo shows analytical and integrative skills developing which can potentially open new doors to synthesising scientific or business ideas into the prevailing worldviews. CHIRON’s opposition to these allows intuitive communication, using myth and storytelling to uplift and inspire the spirit towards greater faith and optimism. Whilst this often done in hidden or subtle ways, much healing is activated on the planet now through the insightful (though not always easy to understand) interception of concepts that are now, with a quincunx to URANUS shuttling nervously into our nervous systems and altering the zeitgeist.

    We have learned much about sovereignty and operating from the heart over these past 3-4 weeks. The shift in these next few weeks is major, as the eclipses usher in a MIND/SPIRIT component on our evolutionary journey. You might find yourself more frequently engaging in discussion on unusual concepts of holistic healing, spiritual experiences and perceptions of non-linear time.

    If such ideas have been previously uncomfortable or unacceptable for you, then you may come to contend with someone in your world or perhaps something deep inside of you that raises possibilities of alternative dimensions and experiences, particularly having to do with the 4D mind/spirit connection and the role of mind (lower/higher) in the art of spiritual or energy healing.

    Needless to say, it is advisable now to keep an open, clear mind and remain emotionally balanced in how you you react to the external influences.

    Have an amazing weekend x

    Mercury conjunct Jupiter – Aug 22, Oct 11 @26°♍13′

    As the ‘busy, analytical mind’ (Mercury in Virgo) meets to join forces with the over-efficient processing machine that is Jupiter in Virgo, we see the formation of a new approach in problem analysis now coming into inception – one that is determined to see, study, try to understand and then to effectively integrate. Everything that needs to be assessed, analysed and dissected in order to best work out and fix the current 'mess' of our reality seems will at least be approached in an enthusiastic, if excessively overdone way. But really? Is this what it's become? Is our scrutiny of all the excruciating minutiae in our mundane existence becoming more important, more vital than the mere reality itself?

    ✺ (F) ♂ □♆ – Tendencies to harm, self-destruction
    ✺ (Sa) ♀ ☌ ♃ (27°♍22′) – Birth of a new media darling
    ✺ (M) ☿ ☌♀ (29°♍00′) – Goddess of virtue speaks

    As we slowly approach our last, scaffold-liquefying few weeks of this SATURN sq NEPTUNE this growing dissolution of exterior reality’s whole legal/political administration (Sep 9), it is wise to know that we are on the serious end of a tiring, energetically draining global confusion which, amongst many things, is set to sort out the men from the baby boys, and in the process, hope to elevate the real women into an exalted goddess status. This whole deal is emphasized with nothing less than the upcoming, highly exacting Solar Eclipse in Virgo (Sep 1),
    Several conjunctions (& stelliums) this week denote that behavior may tend towards the blindingly one-sided, and the squares/oppositions create tensions unforeseen as we struggle to see truth, justice and some righteous action that merely destroys all hope for peace unless we take a step back and assess situations from all sides.

    Of course, the Mars/Saturn conjunction is the big hitter this week, a mostly destructive and pernicious energy, raising the urgency to assertively make boundaries and to actively reign in those sanctimonious firebrand hotheads of the political and religious kind. It’s time to concentrate, focusing our efforts on maintaining patience and persistence by working through any energy blockages or difficulties. These will be seen early in the week with the release of some much pent-up disgust or anger (♂ sqq ♅), though curbed and dissipated by the weekend as the world starts to grip into solution mode with the aim of consolation and healing (☿☌♀☌♃ – Aug 29).

    Nothing happens by accident, and although the pent up hostility or frustration might tend to drain and debilitate our spirits it is important to stay in touch and sensitive about each other’s ideals. With the Sun and other planets in Virgo now, the most appropriate attitude is to take an earthy, practical action towards actualizing ideals. This means working together in mature, responsible ways, to be open to higher ways of dealing with old, lower-vibe issues, and to process, process, process. Particularly internally. Watch out for getting a bit too neurotic with the details though. Virgo energy tends to make one a bit pedantic and mind-obsessed to get things ‘just right’. This must not retard the ability to seize the opportunity when it’s up for grabs. Go for it already. Dive in when you feel it’s close enough.
    (Sometimes holding ‘virginity’ itself is such a shame, other times breaking it is a shame – virgociousness can be such an anxiety). Anyway, Venus opposite Chiron this week will bring more attention to all this kind of thing.

    Is most important to note that both the exterior world and the inner inhibitions which have been keeping us enslaved and encrusted in a world of fear, self-loathing and shame are now experiencing a monumental meltdown. As we head into eclipse season next month, with the blessed Sun journeying through Virgo, our only option is to clean up our act. Our physical health, our daily routines and way we work and serve one another comes into major focus. We will not stand to be told how to do this, but at the same time we need to stop being so hard upon ourselves and start to understand that true health starts with establishing a tender loving care with our own inner spirit.

    Yes, nobody out there has the right to lord it over us, nor do we have the power to impose our solemn truth as gospel upon others. Watch out for this fiery element acting out in Shakespeare’s theatre this week. These are the last remaining dramas of a fast-dissolving 3D universe, one which has reigned over humankind since the fabled fall of consciousness. These can only be overcome by making a solid pact with yourself to stay firmly footed in the present moment, the 4D consciousness that comes only from a vigilance not to judge the self or others, just to observe and take appropriate, non-partial action.

    All other action is viable to keep us trapped in the 3D prism, and we seriously cannot be nourished by what feeds us anything that aims to keep us miserable and low.
    Let’s keep it ‘real’ (now),
    and have an amazing week x

    The Week Ahead: August 29-September 4
    http://angstoic.com/2016/08/week-ahe...9-september-4/


    Quote A brief astrological synopsis of the most significant transits this week:
    ✺ (M)☿ ☌ ♀ (29°♍00′) – an appreciation of practical ideas
    ✺ (M) ♂ □ ☊ – Resistance to contact/connection
    ✺ (Tu) ♀ in ♎ – stepping into choice/taste
    ✺ (Tu) ☿ ℞ (29°♍05’Rx) – introspective analysis (ends Sep 22_
    ✺ (Th)☉ sqq ♅ – Nervous tension, leading to impulsive actions
    ✺ (Th) ☽ ☌ ☉ (09°♍21′) Thursday Sep 01, 09:04 am – ANNULAR SOLAR ECLIPSE – Hard reality check
    ✺ (F)☉ □ ♄, ☍ ♆ – all systems down
    ✺ (F)☿ ☌ ♃ (28°♍34′) – overthinkinkinking
    ✺ (S)☉ ☌ ☊ (12°♍30′) – seeking to connect, but on most specific grounds

    [sigh]

    A touch of stoic existentialism is necessary to proceed this week.

    Much of what is happening has been indeed brewing for months. Much of what has been commented upon here (in my running posts) over the past years has already come to pass, with what remains now being the steady, full realisation of all this.

    Our world is not just changing.

    It has changed.

    The mystical remnants of our youth have been exposed for what they truly were: some incomplete, highly romanticised stories of our victim/hero recollections, some smoke and mirror parlour trick, no longer capable of impressing or repressing anyone any longer. The sentiment has all but dried. Today, we slowly wake up to a reality that hardly allows us to go back to things we visited, but only to dispel all the gory/glory myth that may surround our past.

    In doing so, and sad as this may seem, we at least allow ourselves a precious opportunity to move into a possible future reality through the resounding awareness that we are operating in present time. Strangely, through the process of elimination, this is all we have left.

    All the strings, all the magnetic bonds, all the heart-connections that were based on fear, anger, guilt, shame… no longer hold.

    As our reality becomes almost excruciatingly real, we notice too that we are privy to a new level of consciousness. One that clearly separates us from others. We see those around us still trapped in prisms of a solitary confinement, we see the ravaging effects that the structure has taken upon them and we see that in many ways we are resistant to their ways.

    As they are to ours.

    Yet the separation exists only in the egoic, fear-based realms of the 3D.

    Our minds are busy, working overdrive to assess and reassess the practical value of what we see around us, in many ways informing the choices we need to make towards restoring some peace in our hearts.

    The last little remnants of what must be relinquished (ego-attachments) must be left behind.

    This is not an easy period, but fortunately, it does not have to be hard either. We each have a choice to make in how we proceed.

    Not later.

    Now.

    Stay in the present moment, hands inside the bus, no baggage allowed.

    Enjoy the ride

    and have an amazing week,
    Many blessings x

    Mercury, the Retrograde and the Light-Speed ahead

    http://angstoic.com/2015/02/mercury-...t-speed-ahead/

    Current Planetary Positions
    8/30/2016

    Moon 16° Leo 51' 06"

    Quote Mercury is a zippy little planet. Being closest in proximity to the Sun its orbital period is only 88 days. From our geocentric perspective it never really appears further than 28 degrees away from the Sun. Therefore it can only ever occupy the same or an adjacent zodiac sign. This is pretty significant when we try to understand Mercury’s function.

    If the Sun is potentially our most rational, decisive and conscious sense of self, then Mercury is his facilitator. Hovering as our Hero’s closest acolyte, acting as his “eyes and ears”, Mercury is constantly feeding the Main Guy with a steady stream of information. Therefore, the primary function is that of communication. Essentially the Sun makes all the decisions, whilst Mercury provides the necessary clues and know-how.

    Spinning around at such high velocity, Mercury, ruler of the mind, is able to gather local data and relate it back to our Hero by bridging the distance between two points. Its proximity to the Sun indicates just how clear the subject matter will be to our Hero, who relies as heavily upon Mercury as we rely upon our five senses (and our mathematical ability) to work out what is going on around us. Of course, sometimes our mind plays tricks on us and we must really stay ‘with it’ to avoid any misunderstanding from occurring. Information is one thing, intelligence to clearly discern and use it creatively requires consciousness and awareness of the present.

    This makes Mercury’s communication role instrumental to our Hero’s overall ability to achieve good, clear, conscious bearings on what is happening, what is desired of him, and how to go about expressing himself with a sense of certainty and creative purpose.

    Scouting about so closely to the Sun, Mercury appears (from earth) to be darting ahead then swinging backwards (or retrograde – Rx) until it disappears behind the Sun, only to reappear to the other side. Like a pendulum, it seems to swing from left to right in rhythm with every step the Sun takes forward. Whilst most useful at its greatest distance, Mercury often appears too close to the Sun’s orb (within 8-17°), becoming highly agitated ‘under the sunbeams’ and its effect is increasingly diminished as it gets closer in orb. Its function is said to be most debilitated when ‘combust’ (<8° conjunction) but this is mostly on the material level. In truth, it is the spirit of Mercury (or any planet ‘flying’ too close to the Sun) that is infused into our Hero’s expression. Therefore, we find the Sun dominating the communicative functions that Mercury would otherwise perform, often rather assertively or authoritatively, as a teacher or a spokesperson would.

    THE RETROGRADE

    mind1Mercury’s Rx period usually lasts around 3-4 weeks, during which time a period of pensive retrospection begins to occur. Delayed, more reflective responses are common for our Hero, not to mention the experience of the sensation of mayhem that commonly sends lines of communication haywire and transportation into all sorts of disarray. These are usual on the physical dimension, but internally it can be a very useful time for reflective meditation, review and inner contemplation of the journey thus far, allowing our Hero to slightly repose and make any necessary realignment of his thoughts, perhaps have a look at things from another perspective.

    Mercury spins backward into the aura of the Sun’s beams, becoming briefly obscured entirely by the Sun (cazimi) at which point it is farthest from the earth. Yet its function is so deeply potent through the Sun’s piercing rays that with enough meditative presence it can manifest as a genius-like quality. Many of us have access to this, but how many of us are born with the ability to still the mind and focus purely on the objective without any interference? This is the primary goal of meditation. To still the mind from feeding us information which might be tinged with points of view, thoughts and opinions which are not relevant to what we are currently perceiving. In retrograde we succumb into greatly subjectified ideas that are great for reflection but not ideal for immediate perceptiveness of the situation. Hence we lose our slight edge on the pulse. Needless to say, meditation is most important during retrograde periods to keep us centred.It takes a full 5-6 weeks for it to draw out of its own retrograde shadow, after which it hurtles forward, this time in front of the Sun. The entire precession is a necessary part of the Solar-consciousness experience, occurring no less than three times a year, and invoking much development in the evolution of the native’s thought complexes. Naturally, if the mind is not being used effectively (excessive dull activity) it has an adverse outcome, especially as the individual progresses with age, manifesting in the breakdown of the brain’s interconnective functions. Exercising the mind creatively keeps this process working in good healthy order, and so the retrograde period serves more as a spiritual respite to allow a sort of digestion of the voluminous influx of mental input generated by our busy sensory processes.

    Mercury’s 2016 Retrogrades

    January 5 – January 25, 2016 …………. starts in Aquarius, ends in earth Capricorn

    April 28 – May 22, 2016 …………………. in earth sign Taurus

    August 30 – September 22, 2016 ……… in earth sign Virgo (current horoscopes link)

    December 19 2016 – January 8, 2017 .. in Capricorn to late degree fire Sagittarius

    This year’s set of retrogrades are primarily in earth signs. Since the earth element governs the physical realm, we can expect a review of the practical, tangible processes feeding to the Soul. Those souls who are more governed by their bodies and the material world will experience this as a time to step back a little and perhaps give their bodies a rest. Many of us have noticed the shifting energy gradually raising our consciousness, but what does it mean if we cannot earth it in a way that is physical and structured?

    A good time to reflect, to look back, particularly about how much your practices are altering. How has your thinking changed the way that you practically function around others? With yourself?

    If you kept journals or diaries in the past months, observe how your whole thinking process has changed. Has it become more focused on identifying the negative, self-defeating thought patterns and has it aimed at dispelling these? Have we become better equipped to identify those who are creating negativity around us?

    It has been a period where many have at least become reminded of how detached we are becoming from our humanity, particularly due to our increasing dependence on networks and technological gadgetry. Perhaps you have discovered this consciously and decided to be more physical in how you regulate and put to practical use the endless streaming deluge of random data it funnels into your life. Perhaps you have consciously chosen to touch base with some of those contacts that were largely cerebral during 2015’s AIR-SIGN retrogrades. Or perhaps these are forcibly becoming crystalised around you.

    Depending on how conscious we are about our choice of sources, we are either finding our world of ready-made, on demand information is either helping us grow in consciousness or it becomes a tiresome, sensory overload to the central energetic intelligence within – the psyche.

    ascension-human-300x243Once upon a time Nature only produced the odd Buddha, Krishna, Mohammed, Lao Tzu or Jesus figure once every thousand years or so. They all spoke and taught with true mindfulness and expressed their words from a place of conscious awareness. In the last 50 years there has been a huge growth of enlightened masters in both the eastern and western cultures. As communication grows faster, with improved, wider education and more access to information, so does the ability for teachers to connect with students.

    Soon, as more and more of us learn to get over our ego hang-ups, tune in and channel directly through the pure intelligence within, there will be a veritable explosion of buddhas all over this planet. This could not happen without communication, and since the pace and volume of the good Word is growing exponentially, the potential too to spread the Word will grow to reach a critical mass.


    In the beginning there was the Word. This Word was relayed by Mercury, ruler of the mind and communication. Slowly, through the ages, the Word has picked up pace and started pelting towards us from all directions and at lightning speed. It stands then, that mastering Mercury is a critical element in the alchemical process that is occurring to humankind today.

    As Mercury goes into retrograde, it is a perfect time to review and reflect upon our thought processes. How much does our personal, inner ‘newsfeed’ facilitate our ability to see clearly, and how much does it sometimes sully the true picture?

    SEPTEMBER - The MONTH AHEAD
    Quote This is the time.
    Everything is about to accelerate, to quicken, as our internal evolutionary powers become increasingly awakened.
    Our DNA holds a vast amount of memory, not unlike that of a very powerful computer, capable of storing boundless information that is currently being downloaded from the multidimensional energy fields that exist everywhere in the universe, beyond measurable time and space.
    The rigid walls of our lower minds are nothing but mere fortresses that store scrolls of expired agreements and the dogmas of traditional belief systems which we continue to hang onto.
    These 3D thought structures are made of social, cultural, historical and familial conditioning, from which we still continue to base all our beliefs about the world. These control us in such ways that they manipulate us into behaving at the mercy and expectation of others. Most of us have been programmed to operate in such ways that allow others to control us, or at least in ways which others find tolerable.
    However, we have seen great intolerance rising on this planet, and it continues to escalate to breaking point.
    Our universe is now ready to unfurl its infinite knowledge into us, to bloat and demolish those walls
    Are you one of those who is ready to accept?
    This is not some crazy delusion, but the dream that many of us have been holding in our hearts for aeons.
    There are people, some very unique folks among us, perhaps even you, who possess exceptional skills and abilities, who have been able to break free of the obligatory programming, to liberate themselves (and others) from all their cultural conditioning, to become open to the logos, its symbol systems and all the expansive knowledge that constitutes universal truth.
    It is our thought systems that generate emotions that will ultimately motivate us to make our choices.
    Unless we make conscious decision to demolish out-dated thought patterns, those dictated by fear, judgement and intolerance, we will continue only to reinforce these conditioned thought systems.
    These are clearly not going to stand through this and the ensuing months. Can you see?
    Do you see that this is the 'time' when linear time itself and all other 3D applications cease to work outright?
    Do you feel it is time to make a different choice?

    COSMIC UPDATE: September 2016
    Quote Things to watch this month... as the NODAL AXIS intercepts the SATURN/NEPTUNE square:
    Observe those strange, sometimes inexplicable influences that may come into our field of experience. Observe how these influences are sometimes likely to develop into uncertainties or insecurities when connecting with others. Observe too how they might tend to make you feel oppressed without knowing why.
    This is probably due to an over-sensitivity or an extreme reaction from your psychic receptiveness when you connect to others, even turning into seemingly irrational fears or apprehensions.
    On a higher level, you are being invited to listen to the guidance of an inner voice, but it is your pre-conditioned fears that often stand to potentially block or create doubts, misgiving or anxieties within you. These often keep you grounded at moments when your spirit is seeking to fly.
    Trust.
    We are currently being blessed with great opportunities to clear inharmonious psychic energy accruing within us from our environment. In this, we are provided with a chance to clearly define our personal ideals, to work earnestly towards bringing them into physical manifestation and let our spirits rise rather than shrink or contract.
    What is 'spirituality', if not a chance to recognise and celebrate that we are all inextricably linked to one another by a power greater than all of us? This power serves as a re-minder that our connection to that power, and to one another, is grounded only in love and compassion.
    Mindful expression of our 'spirituality' serves to bring a sense of perspective, meaning and purpose into our lives.
    The underlying process of the combination of these ♄/♆/☊ energies this month is there to help you intercept your fears, replace them with a spirit of being open to love and unconditional acceptance.
    Allow yourself to become open, to welcome, and be welcomed by the forces of a profound higher-dimensional consciousness.

    Quote To say that we are all in this together now would be a slight understatement, but to say exactly what we are in might be very well misconstrued or misinterpreted as a mere projection on the part of this author, and that may only add to the confusion and distrust that is possible this week if we are not in a place of absolute certainty about the only thing we can be certain. Our sense of self.
    So we will leave all other possibilities up to the ethers of our wild imagination and see if we can make our dreams real…

    The truth is that whilst we are all somehow affected by the subtle oceanic forces now engulfing the planet this week, most everyone will be affected in quite a personal way (see Major Life Activations for Virgo Solar Eclipse, 1 Sep, 2016). To be most accurate, one may have to look at how the above influences play out in the individual’s chart to see exactly how matters may manifest specifically.

    It is the awkward period between eclipses, where everything seems to teeter on suspense and intrigue about how things will turn out, and often, one step out of sync could turn situations on their heads.

    So a state of mindfulness is necessary at all times.

    In many ways, the more we try to analyse or define something which is best left as indefinable, infinite and divinely unspoken, the better our chances of trying to understand it.

    And it’s not even understanding that we’re after. Things best left unsaid – just valued and accepted, not so much about for what they are but more for what they’re not, is the key here. We are called to apply all the forgiveness and kindness we can muster just to keep matters from taking our precious spirits from a high degree of expectation to a state of feeling defrayed, disheartened and downright disappointed.

    What the crivvens are we talking about?

    Something shifts this week, and we are launched into an inter-dimensional, gravity-warping vortex of either sheer ecstasy or complete agony as we wrestle with that horrendous monster, Time itself.

    It becomes increasingly challenging for us to remain in present time (the now). Life as we know it, or rather as we romanticised it to be, begins to dawn on us that many of the agreements we are chained to – obligations (work, commitments, debts etc.) that we have made, to either the past or the future, must either be honoured as true and worthy or abandoned outright as mere apparitions of the mind.

    Whether these agreements are real or not, they mostly exist in another time (past or future). Since we are fast realising that we in neither in past or future but in the present, we must also come to be confronted with making choices that either agree to keep these agreements or just agree to let them go.

    Are we getting this?

    For the past few months we have been looking at our situation in an increasingly more grounded way. This means that we are seriously coming to terms about what is true for us now, and from this more determined place we are allowed to accept what is truly possible for us in a possible future moment.

    Many of the things we come to realise now are unfolding as simply unsustainable and whether we have come to fully accept and let go of these or not, this week’s final instalment of Saturn squaring Neptune (Saturday 10 Sep) is promising to douse our ideals with such a critical sense of reality that some of us desperately deserve.

    It has to happen.

    If we have taken prudent steps, with a mature approach about how we can practically manage ourselves as a succession of ‘present moment’ realities, then we will avoid slumping into a miserable state of anxiety and despair, especially if we have somewhat delusionally placed enormous expectations on what it is we think (or dreamed) we have invested in.

    Hope this is making sense.

    Anyway, reality hits home is all we’re saying, and as the great benevolent one (Jupiter) hits Libra this Friday, it seems that a new judgement day is about to dawn upon us all. Jupiter in Libra wants us to grow and integrate our hopes by creating a sense of balance and harmony in all things before us. In the next 12 months we will come to experience a whole new appreciation of what it means to stay balanced and buoyant, we will develop tactfulness and guile in order to keep things in perfect harmony, or we will lose our poise and balance and keel over, then have to scramble to find new measures to restore our peace.

    It all kicks off this week, and if we have not done the work to prepare our spirit for the big debut into the next dimension of mind/body experience, we may be left holding onto a most inconvenient situation which will require tremendous effort (or ballast) to bring us back to some equilibrium again.

    This is it now. If you have learned to love, honour and respect yourself, then love for the other awaits.

    No time left for misgivings and misconceptions.

    The time to get real is here.

    Now.

    Have an amazing week.
