    Jupiter in Capricorn, 12/2/19-12/19/20
    https://angstoic.com/2019/12/jupiter-in-capricorn/

    "Jupiter stepped into Capricorn on December 2, and until December 19, 2020, he promises to bring us exactly the kind of justice, rewards, benefits and opportunities that we deserve. Like Santa, he knows. He knows exactly what’s coming to you and there’s absolutely no chance that you’ll miss out. So if you make a wish, be careful what you wish for…

    Much change in our society over the next 12 months, mainly because the key themes around government and control seep into every aspect of our daily lives. Jupiter’s drive to lead ‘dutifully’ and ‘responsibly’ under Capricorn is driven to extremes by mostly unconscious motivations, caused by the sustained conjunction to Pluto. As he approaches Saturn (Dec 2020), we are aware that we are coming to an end of a very significant great cycle. 2020 will be a difficult year since all that is malefic comes into a prolonged period of conflict in the second semester.

    In all of our relationships, it can indicate struggles with those who need to control everything, who need to stay on top and try to manage everyone under them. Whilst the way this is handled can get incredibly out of control, those with planets in earth signs (Capricorn/Virgo/Taurus) will stand to benefit considerably by the new ‘laws’. Those in Pisces and Scorpio will also do well, while those with planets or points in Aries/Cancer/Libra may have a definite struggle on their hands trying to endure the hypocrisy, distrust and egotism – all negative traits of Jupiter in Capricorn."

    THE WEEK AHEAD: Dec 02-08

    "Jupiter leaves the prodigal land of Sagittarius to join Venus, Saturn and Pluto in frugal, hard-nosed Capricorn. This officially heralds a very sobering, increasingly austere journey in the 12 months ahead.
    Jupiter immediately heads into a square with Chiron, aggravating differences, rifts and tender sores still left open and unhealed, either deep within us or with those who just don’t understand our pain.
    Venus at the Capricorn South Node doesn’t help, pulling the heart’s affections away from likenesses and liking and more towards differences and stress points. The bickering and criticism among those with whom we’re in close contact gets worse, and love-bubbles are about to burst leaving only the most spartan kinds behind to get it on.
    The Pisces First Quarter Moon tries to wax lyrical with the dazed and confused Sagittarian Sun, whose square to Neptune renders him tender and hopelessly susceptible to all kinds of duplicity, impracticality, chicanery and seduction.
    Softer aspects from Venus and Mars will try to help facilitate better synergy and understanding, but with Venus in an earth sign and heading toward a bone-crushing Saturn/Pluto triple conjunction, real love over these next 12 months will demand not just an outpouring of blood sweat and tears, but driven to the point of tyranny and torment.
    The real-life pressures stacking up all around us, brick by brick. Daily reminders are frustratingly surmounting into a Great Wall of China, demanding that we demonstrate our dutifulness; show proof that we can comply; fill out more comprehensive forms, sign away rights, pass tighter inventory requirements.

    It’s nearly the height of Capricorn season and those multiple conjunctions and eclipses of December and January. The cosmos is screaming that we be a responsible, authoritative and consequential person. In response, we slowly feed the auspices of setting up a most officious, increasingly stuffy social framework where no-one can relax and the ‘authorities’ are constantly hounding us.

    Not sure how that’s all going to sit well with some of you ‘renegades’, ‘free-thinkers’, ‘sinners’ and ‘free-spirits’ out there, but one thing is certain and for sure already. Life in 2020 won’t be a walk in the park."

    LUNATION NEWSLETTER FULL MOON at 19°52′ GEMINI

    "This can be a most vague, most ambivalent time. If more information only makes us more uncertain, then how can we have faith in anything at all?

    Greetings Fellow Travellers,

    In the final Full Moon of the decade, we look back at the twenty-teens with a head-scratching wonder. No other decade we have known has progressed our understanding as much. Arguably, the induction of social media has transformed not just the way we think, but deranged the common pathways of all communication. We now stand at the summit of a decade where the dissemination of news, information, media and nearly all forms of communication has changed our lives in ways which we have still barely begun to understand and presented problems with which we have hardly started to grapple.

    This can be a most vague, most ambivalent time. But is it any different to any previous age? Is the world a scarier, more uncertain place to live in or are we merely more informed about the darkness that surrounds us? Are we more or less assured as to our fate today than we were, say 10 years ago?

    Your head is telling you to stay positive, to move onward and upwards while your heart's not quite so optimistic, almost harping on the fact that things are just not adding up. You're feeling nervous and confused. You seek to know what's coming, but it feels more like you're mourning a foreboding death, or nursing symptoms of some yet unknown disease, and deep within there's a presentiment that your life is about to be thrust into a series of wildly unpredictable events. And then you realise that you must get up and out of bed, and try to function like it's just another day...

    But it's not just another day. It's Full Moon time when certain personal matters seem to come to a head: a time of ripe fruition, of culmination, completion, when serious decisions, even endings must be called.

    Like all creatures, we live by cycles of growth and decay when we must effectuate matters and accept they've reached their high tide moment. Here, we must either yield the rewards for our effort or otherwise become divested... put to rest.

    This Full Moon is such a time...

    ************************************************** ************************************************** ********************************
    THE WEEK AHEAD: Dec 09-15

    We are transforming, inside and out and to those who are aware of this global metamorphosis, it can feel like a frightful process…
    Jupiter, now in Capricorn signifies that ‘real’ things must become ‘realised’ while the bogus and fraudulent be brought to justice. But whilst we see the symptoms everywhere, we do not see the causes. Examination, scrutiny and trial of our systems eventually reveals that it’s not out Presidents/leaders and referendums that are to blame for our collective derangement. We will learn much about the structure.

    Jupiter’s square to maverick Chiron (Monday) scoffs and shames the outsider, adding more harm to Chiron’s injury. Here we begin to see that it’s the academic, judiciary and wealth-making systems themselves which harm and create further wounding to individuals, just to profit and fuel their own importance.

    The Gemini Full Moon (Dec 12) with squares to Neptune and quincunx to Saturn/Pluto promises a week of ultimate mayhem and madness, as our desire for true expression is not supported by the facts. We are left confused about what to make of the current narratives. It is time we began to confront the true causes of what is going wrong.

    Venus tries to nestle herself between Saturn/Pluto‘s increasingly irrational, agitated, herd-like and simply disagreeable society. Another cold, foreboding 12 months of estrangement and alienation for those who aren’t prepared to do the hard work in relationship. True alchemy for those who can withstand the pressures of facing up to their responsibilities.

    Jupiter’s trine to Uranus (Sunday) suggests a massive attitude shift – a turn of fortune for those praying to the heavens for some relief, release or liberation. Though this may come, it is uncertain how long it can be sustained."

    Climactic change has never been so pressing, but will you heed the call?
    1/10/20
    https://app.getresponse.com/view.htm...y=v&z=EJ4CIfx&

    "Greetings Fellow Travellers,

    Welcome to 2020. Astrologically, this climactic year kicks off with one of the most intense few days in history. As the Cancer Moon glows toward the full height of her synodic glory, the earth will attempt to obscure what is an ultra-rare multiple conjunction forming behind the Sun.

    I say "attempt to obscure" because, after all, this is merely penumbral Lunar eclipse - meaning that only the earth's penumbra (the lighter, outer part of its shadow) will touch the Moon. To the naked eye, this eclipse, at its height, will only look like just like another Full Moon.



    The Moon, ruler of our less-conscious instinctive processes thrives in her watery domain of Cancer. The Full Moon just enhances our innate, extrasensory abilities, instinctively informing us about who we're actually dealing with. Those who are most emotional can feel everything. They sense that there's something going on out there, something big.

    Though nothing can obscure the moon's instinctive glare upon us here, there is a great sense of trepidation, worry and even horror at how to react.

    Opposite, the authoritative, decision-making Sun is currently conspiring at the Capricorn South Node end with the likes of Mercury (communications), Ceres (grief, loss, abduction), Saturn (control) and Pluto (annihilation and rebirth). Capricorn is earthy, cardinal - concerned with credit & credibility, status & statistics, hierarchy and importance, respect and patronage. What does he care about feelings? The Sun's superior conjunction to Mercury means he'll tell you what must be done to show up to get things done. But the instinctive Moon is opposite. She clings to her habits, habitats and securities. Unconsciously, we are trying to maintain emotional bonds and a sense of community from those closest to us. Opposite the Capricorn stellium, there is an incredible fear that we may have to change some of these 'habits'.

    The harsh, earth-crushing Saturn/Pluto conjunction is only days away. Many of us get the sense that there's a bigger, more monumentally final process about to take place. An exact semi-square from another malefic planet, Mars, aggravates the situation. Out there, a square from Eris, agitates things even more.



    If we can all feel something, it is that this is it now. Through a series of 'unfortunate' events, each made worse by those adorably bumbling nincompoops at the helm of the 'operation' we are part of, is starting to indicate an extraordinarily terminal effect on how our societies have been governed and the abuse of power that has this entire planet on the brink of some colossal collapse. To those who are adequately awake, it is clear that structures are collapsing. We are coming to the end of a great age, and a new one is about to come in.

    Each pressing event that is affecting our lives - our health, family, relationships and careers - displays more evidence that we are ourselves complicit into a chain of humanitarian disasters. As long as we leave the management of our exterior world to the ineptitude and recklessness of others, we leave ourselves open to betrayal, abandonment, socio-economic and environmental catastrophes.

    From this, we cannot hide. Nor can we deny that our exterior world is changing. We are forced to stand and take responsibility, make sweeping changes to our domestic habits (and habitats) or unfortunately face the karmic effects of our complicity and complacency for failing to act against the mania and toxicity.

    These latest eclipses have rocked our world because they are here to push us over the edge until something real happens. Something big must change. We cannot allow things to go on this way and expect any improvement. Change must come from each and every one of us.

    Those who have planets, the Sun, Moon or important points in their chart at 18-24˚ - especially the Cardinal signs Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn must step forward and do something huge, lead the way. The rest of us who are not directly affected may have to follow suit."

    FULL MOON IN LEO: Do you have the courage to grow up and become who you really are?
    https://app.getresponse.com/view.htm...y=i&z=EtLPh6O&
    2/6/20

    "Greetings Fellow Travellers,

    If we are indeed living in "interesting times", then it appears we, as a people, have settled into an epidemic state of collective complacency, isolationism and disinterest. As the "great divide" among humanity becomes more obvious in our societies, it pushes us further into feelings of futility that something can be done to salvage and preserve the very institutions that once promised us a sense of hope and prosperity.

    Saturn/Pluto has activated every fear and anxiety resting inside of us, known or unknown, and squares from Eris only prompt a mad scramble to protect our own interests just to stay ahead in the race for survival. This, and the cognitive dissonance generated by the ongoing Uranus/Neptune semi-square, only confirms that we are not willing to see anything but our convenient version of the truth. To many, to try to argue our case feels tiresome, fruitless and forlorn. So we choose instead to hold back, shut out and curl up in our favourite corner and self-remedy our stress with cheap consolatory means.

    Personally, the lies we tell ourselves to keep from seeing the deeper truth about our world don’t feel like lies. They feel comfortable, familiar, and true. We repeat them like a mantra and cling to them like security blankets, hoping to calm ourselves and regain some sense that the world works the way we believe it ought to.

    It takes courage to stand up and take the higher moral ground. It takes a certain sense of maturity to act in alignment with our inner vision. As the visionary Aquarian Sun becomes opposed by the self-preserving instincts of the Leo Moon, humanity, which is nothing but the sum of its individuals, is faced with great conflict.

    Do we dare to stand up and be heard in our plight to improve not just our own suffering, but that of our neighbours, or is this simply a hopeless enterprise?

    Maya Angelou once said "Courage is the most important of all the virtues because without courage you can't practice any other virtue consistently. You can practice any virtue erratically, but nothing consistently without courage."



    This Leo Moon at 20°♌00', in trine to a soon-to-be out-of-bounds Mars in Sadge, invigorates each one of us with the unprecedented will and vigour to fight; to fearlessly stand up for the truth - not just against those who oppose it, but against those in our midst - our 'friends' who see it and choose to do nothing.

    We are out of time for the hyperinflated nonsense. It has all gotten seriously out of hand.

    Our little self-perpetuating lies and euphemisms become just false friends and partisans we once looked to for comfort and protection. They can no longer appease us. They are making us weak, sick, despondent.

    At this Full Moon, we come to the stark realisation that we can keep the truth at bay only for so long. All our double-speak, inertia and cognitive indirections cannot ever hope to expunge the lies we hear and reiterate each day. As we are seeing, the longer we try to pretend they can, the more we become lost and dispirited, hence the more we deepen the divide.

    Unless we stand up and dare to do something different, nothing will change. The next few weeks, with Mercury about to go retrograde in Pisces, the collective state of cognitive dissonance will reach critical proportions."

    PISCES NEW MOON: Dare to dream the dream this universe always held for those on this planet

    https://app.getresponse.com/view.htm...y=Y&z=E9dsCsK&


    "Greetings fellow travellers,

    At the dark of this Moon, it may be an almost impossible feat for the sensitive, spiritually-aware individual to focus solely on the mystical wonders and cosmic virtues often heralded by the very delicate, almost awe-inspiring Pisces New Moon. The amount of distraction brought into our minds by the very real social anxieties and all the fleeting trivialities of our times can be unnerving. It is essential to stay mindful of all the interferences if we are going to get a good read of the cosmic weather.

    As an out-of-bounds Mars joins the cacophony of planets at the Capricorn South Node, the weeks ahead leading to the Aries Equinox may be barbed with hooks and emotional triggers. We must be mindful not to devise the traps, to not become lured into the snares of those who are trying to get a feisty rise out of us. The disturbing noise of the political pantomime becomes a persistent, diabolical movement, which can become an overriding distraction to the affairs of the soul. No, it's not a conspiracy. It's a distraction from what is really going on in our world. Whatever is occurring to the structure of power in your own, personal sphere (home, work, relationships) is also happening outside that world.

    And you can see, it's not just you. People everywhere are genuinely pissed off. They feel increasingly marginalised and anxious about their future, want more control over their lives.

    Young or old, male or female, in America, Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, people everywhere all want to be individuals, not just expendable components of faceless corporations, trade unions, political parties or religious movements. We each want to be autonomous individuals who wish to express ourselves and are in control of our own destiny.

    During the Uranus/Pluto squares of 2012-2015, the spread of digital technology and its ubiquitous gadgetry and the rise of this über-individualism in society meant that our politics became all screwed up. The spirit one had of being part of a collective ideological movement, which could one-day challenge power and change the world, also began to die away.

    In its place was born a technocratic management system which monitors and controls all people as integers of intersectional groups. The technocrats and their intelligent algorithms control our choices by analysing and using our data to understand how we are behaving inside the consumerist matrix. Meanwhile, we are led to believe that we're unique, free-thinking and autodynamic individuals who have an infinite amount of choices on what to think, what to buy and who to vote for.

    Creepishly, in the long-anticipated effects to last month's Saturn conjunction to Pluto in Capricorn, the masses have become infinitesimally divided, each individual becoming disempowered by the obscure but crippling suspicion that since there is nobody quite like their 'individual' self, that they must somehow be better, or at otherwise better off alone in their worseness. In the lower-minded individual, this emerges as a hatred, or quasi racism or sexism, or agism or some other kind of sociological angst that separates them at the most empirical level. Unlike the past 200 years, this new-age anxiety is not a fear born out of some notion of biological superiority. It is primarily a more rational fear, whose roots are complex but stem from a moral, ethical and academic arrogance (Jupiter in Capricorn).

    As Uranus entered Taurus in 2019, we find our innovativeness and intellectual development locked into a stagnant, static world because it's always looking to the past for clues about how to move forward. Thus, it is afraid to imagine something new. We refuse to believe in a future system that hasn't already existed. This fixed, traditionalist status only leads us down the road to atrophy and repetition. Uranus is debilitated in the fixed/earth mode, and life becomes a repetitive drone because it doesn't allow the innovativeness and free political ideas of the masses to challenge power. Instead, it enables the endemic corruption, cover-ups and psychopathic mania to own and control everything without posing any considerable challenge.

    The antithesis of this rigid social stability is the politics of imagination. Enter this Pisces New Moon, and the ensuing Full Moon in Virgo, which opposes the Sun/Neptune. Here we sense a yearning that there must be something higher than the repetition and the pessimism that has engulfed the earth. Pisces, ruled by Neptune, engenders us all with The Dream. I say 'The' Dream because it is only in the collective vision that we are united-as-one that we can work together towards a more compassionate and forgiving world.

    The fear imposed upon this planet by those in the ruling classes and their silent, but powerful, supporters is real. The leaders of today are primarily empowered by those in the Pluto-in-Leo generation i.e. the "baby-boomers". It is they who refuse to come to terms with the ominous coming of their own mortality. This darkening shadow of an aging generation's death anxiety over the entire planet is slowly cast over the rest of us, and rather than dealing with serious issues like climate change and the depletion of the planet's physical resources, they instead make an obstinate grab for more.

    What we are seeing from old-style governments and banking systems is an excuse to restructure power and resources in a kind of Orwellian-style dystopia (see China) - one which reflects that generation's fear of mortality because they are incapable of seeing anything going on beyond their own death. A very competitive war will ensue.


    As Mars ignites the patriarchic stellium of Jupiter/Saturn/Pluto in Capricorn, his sister Eris, now squaring from Aries, is totally pissed off. She stands for strife, discord, cataclysm and extinction. Something has to die. Forever. Unlike Pluto, which brings rebirth, Eris sees only the survival of the fittest. Mars will join Eris in Aries for the entire second half of 2020. Together they will see that everything that is in corruption and decay stands up to the fight of its life.

    Meanwhile, it helps to understand that everything you experience here is a product of our imagination. Our politics is about imagining the future and having the means to persuade a bunch of people who dream the same dream to support us to make that happen.

    What are you imagining? Is what you see in your dreams emotionally unsustainable? If we wish to hold an optimistic vision of the future - one that sheds the sadness and the grief carried over from our past, we must learn to fuse science with religion. We need to reach inside our hearts and give rise to a whole new spirituality. Both our technologies and 'god' are about the grandeur of living and being part of a grand story. Essentially, humans want to live according to a big narrative. We want a story out of which we can draw infinite ideas.

    How do you imagine the future story to look?

    Blessings, and have an amazing New Moon xx "

    FULL MOON IN VIRGO: Are you brave enough to break through into the reality of this dream?

    3/6/20

    (Cosmic parallels drawn between what's happening now with the US oligarchy and the collapse of the USSR not so long ago)




    "Greetings fellow travellers,

    Yes, things continue to become ever more “interesting”. The Pisces Sun’s hazy, lazy effect upon the ego is made ever more diffuse by Neptune, and our subliminal awareness of the sensory field becomes greatly amplified, exposing our sensitivities to all kinds of ego-delusions, glamourisations, weaknesses and even victim-sagas.

    By Monday, the anxious, worrisome Virgo Moon will stand in opposition to this Sun, though she is totally unsure of what to make of any of this fantastic nonsense. She is of the neat, orderly, practical kind. She abhors abstractions and departures from the ordinary routine, and though she usually trusts whatever the Sun’s up to, she is concerned that things are getting way too weird and it’s getting harder to take care of business.

    Even the sesqui-square from Venus/Uranus in earthy Taurus provides little comfort or assurance that things will be stable.

    Monday, 9 March 2020, 17:49 UTC

    Everything is so up in the air – those things we valued very much in our lives seem to be dwindling and fragmenting all around us. We keep seeing signs and hearing harrowing echoes that “we live in interesting times”, although I’m sure that many of us pine for days when things may once again cease to be so “interesting”; when we can finally return to some semblance of order, again.

    Let’s be careful what we wish for…

    For we all know that big things are afoot along this leg of the journey, don’t we, fellow travellers? We’re all aware of a mass conspiracy now mounting up near the peaks of Capricorn. Mars (action), just past the South Node (ghosts of the past) slowly marches his way further up the hill, soon to join Pallas Athena (strategy), Jupiter (law), Pluto (power) and then finally Saturn (control) who is at the last degree of his own lofty, craggy domicile. We all suspect that massive things are rolling out, perhaps as an attempt by those in power to restore at least some pretence of order & control.

    But really? Are we aware? If so, we’re certainly taking it with a sense of disaffected dissonance.
    As Saturn enters into Aquarius briefly (Mar-May), strange cracks appear in the fabric of our reality. A near semi-square to Neptune and square to Uranus is a reminder that the dissonance won’t hold. A new awakening is near.

    This has all happened before, in incarnations not so distant.

    Twenty-nine years ago, when Saturn was last about to leave Capricorn – in the final stages of Russian communism, there was similar impassivity towards a decadent system. By the end of the 1980s, the Soviet regime had so successfully indoctrinated itself into every aspect of Russian society, that to consider any possible alternatives was out of the question for any politician, journalist, academic or citizen living within the regime. Such was the illusion of perfect control that no-one dared conceive of anything but the official party line, put out by the propaganda of the status quo.

    January 1991

    The Soviet Union suddenly collapsed on 26 Dec 1991. At the beginning of that year, Saturn was again at the final degree of Capricorn, forming a massive stellium with masters of fragmentation and dissolution – Uranus and Neptune. This was an ultra-rare astrological phenomenon to experience in one’s lifetime.

    Of course, no one in the Soviet system could see it crumbling until it was too late to avoid a complete collapse of the old order. It happened because the regime couldn’t hold up anymore – the system’s foundations had become so undermined that the structure was ultimately unsustainable. This much was obvious to anyone waiting in line for bread or petrol or toilet paper or to those fighting a futile war in Afghanistan or middling about in the bureaucratic halls of the Kremlin.
    Officially, in public life, such observations went unexpressed. To utter out loud the obvious truth meant to be silenced, redacted and even punished. Strangely, among Russians back then, the end of the Soviet Union was neither a surprise nor was it foreseeable. Such was the bizarre state of wholesale acceptance and phoney belief in a clearly broken system, and all the myths perpetuated to prop it up.

    To outsiders, in the West, it seemed like the best-kept secret – a conspiracy of control so tight, behind walls to high, that it was impossible to know the full force of its might and power, or that the whole thing was run on smoke and mirrors, on the brink of ruin. The slick facade of control is always the cloak of a corroding system.
    Outer 1991/ Inner 2020

    Sound familiar?
    Well, it’s remarkable to see the similarities between current astrological themes and key signatures between then and now. While the times and places, motions and emotions of the leading characters may have changed slightly through one generation, we see how the entire planet is reaching a similar state of mass delusion. The greater the extent of fakeness in the world, the more those under its spell are tipped to go along, clinging to the reassurance of its fairy-tale simplicity.

    Today, we live in a world where the powerful deceive us on just about every level. We know they’re lying to us, and they know we know they’re lying. They don’t care. We may say we care, or that we’re “woke”, but we do nothing. We ask pathetically “what can be done?” and go along. And nothing ever changes. It’s become the perfect self-perpetuating lie. Today, we live in a world of virtual reality, where truth is not truth. It is a world that is beyond truth. We live in the world of endlessly imaginable possibilities, but we keep doing the same thing over, like watching reruns of some sitcom from the 80s.

    We turn a blind eye to the subtle rise of authoritarianism; rampant corporate corruption; titanic-level natural and ecological disasters; the strange case of Donald Trump; the rascally interference of Russians; Sinister China & the mysterious spread of the coronavirus; Brexit and the impending collapse of the EU; the devastating wars of Syria & Yemen; endless migration & a global refugee crises; the much-snubbed threat of climate change; looming economic depression….

    Meanwhile, wholesale, systemic lies have become indoctrinated and accepted into our daily lives. World leaders continue to refuse to address the tough decisions, have completely ceded authority to global finance and the central bank, and provide us all with utterly simplistic sound-bites, patently false narratives to steer us away from the uncertainty and ambivalence of our times.

    That most of us are under the haze and confusion of these tall tales has unintended and grave consequences. Our senior statesmen and glorified newsreaders, fueled by the mainstream media in all its tech-billionaire owners and CEO’s have become the puppeteers of perception. These are the magicians and sorcerers who dodge telling the public the uncomfortable and difficult truths about the world just to maintain the stranglehold of power on a status quo which isn’t quite what it seems to be.

    But it’s not their fault. And it is wrong to think that there is some global conspiracy against us. We cannot blame the elite class for this **** state of affairs because, in truth, most of us prefer it this way. The world is a hard place, too complicated and scary to otherwise endure. We prefer the streaming reality-TV-show paradigm that has become daily news, with all of its celeb-candidates and key contestant ticket-holders. We want this delusion because it pacifies our minds from knowing what a harsh, limited, excruciating world we live on.

    This dream/nightmare is our preferred channel. This is the ordinary reality we have collectively chosen to believe and this is what we have manifested. Do we dare to switch?"

    New Moon in Aries: Are you getting this?

    https://app.getresponse.com/view.htm...y=h&z=EJnWVIS&

    "Greetings Fellow Travellers,

    I will try to be ultra-brief if that's possible since so much news is streaming in from the cosmos and there is only so much we can really process against that siren of media commotion that's going on all around us.

    I understand the narrative out there sounds pretty dire - a lot of morbid, freaky news about some virus running rife, and though the only real defence for all seems to be to splinter off and isolate away from everyone, please rest assured that all the cosmic signs are pointing that we take all that we hear with a grain of salt, keep on working on our inner selves, conserving purity of mind.

    Uranus semisquaring Neptune in its final dizzy spells, calling out not to buy into the same hypernormalising hogwash which ultimately brought down soviet Russia at the end of 1991. A reminder: Saturn's now right where he was back in the lead up to that fall, hovering over Uranus/Neptune as they also primed themselves to have their big conjunction there in Capricorn.

    Harmonic conversion of the big three - cosmic rulers of the 3rd, 4th and the 5th dimensions, those degrees now being triggered off by today's Mars/Jupiter/Pluto, like some nostalgic echo of Kurt Cobain's grunge-filled maudlin angst which back then told us 'Nevermind', and what would follow for the next 29 years was a cycle of soul-dissociated beings, slowly becoming disaffected and dismayed that this old world was really coming to an end.

    And so it is.
    We are here at the end. Very soon we will reset the 'now' button.




    So, nevermind. Nothing is real. Turns out your gig never really mattered that much after all. Meanwhile, all other news is cancelled until further notice. All activity is frozen, like in that old Grimm fairy-tale, and each untimely death can be attributed to this accursed virus, served up on telly as proof of sorts that this disease is really real. The ghost of our alienated and antagonistic youth; this Curse of nihilistic Kurt, who most sardonically warned us back in 1991 "smelled like teen spirit" is about to erupt into humanity's revolt or fizzle out into oblivion.

    What am I raving about? I guess you'll see with your real eyes. Or is it with your real lies?

    Anyway, just want to wish you all an amazing Aries New Moon. Expecting Weinstein now to follow Epstein in an early cosmic pardon, while all the rest of us are left to pick up pieces and do the hard labour.

    ... just for now, please take a moment to sit and reflect on your position, become aligned, body and soul and make a firm intention to at least stand in your Solar centre and to heal thyself from all this other madness."

    "Greetings Fellow Travellers,

    Time appears to stand still as Saturn stations to turn retrograde. It will be a very confronting few months, as the 'Lord of Karma' not only gave us a whip of what the 'new normal' will look like post-2021 when he enters Aquarius 'proper', but on his return to Capricorn (Jul 2) he will join the dance with Jupiter and Pluto, thus laying down the architecture for our final transition out of the industrial age and into the brave new millennium.

    In his 1959 follow-up, "Brave New World Revisited", Aldous Huxley observed that the world was becoming like the dystopia he described in his 1931 masterpiece "Brave New World" much faster than he ever imagined. He cited the reason for this was due to rapid 'overpopulation', and the more expedient means by which populations could become controlled, such as the subtle use of drugs/medicines and subliminal suggestion through the media.

    "Many of them are normal because they're so well adjusted to the status quo, their voice silenced so early in their lives that they do not struggle, suffer or develop symptoms as the neurotic does.

    They're 'normal' not in the absolute sense of the word; they're only normal in relation to a profoundly abnormal society. Their perfect adjustment to an abnormal society is a measure of their mental sickness.

    These millions of abnormally normal people, living without fuss in a society to which, if they were fully human, they wouldn't be so adjusted".

    ~ Aldous Huxley ☉□ ♄/♅

    Of course, world population has only doubled since the sixties, and the rate of scientific development has provided us with a media machine that now pervades and arguably controls every facet of our social lives, to some extent. What is to become of us? We are skyrocketing to who knows where, and many cannot decide whether things are moving too fast or not nearly fast enough at all. Indeed, a brave new world awaits us.

    As Saturn retrogrades back into Capricorn, it is time to revisit the epic remnants of a world that may have served us, but only in so far as it has brought us to this sparse and lonesome summit.


    Are You Ready to Go Back? THE WEEK AHEAD
    May 11-17, 2020
    https://angstoic.com/2020/05/are-you...ead-may-11-17/



    "The disintegration of our old, structured world is now in its final stages, and whilst few of us could ever have predicted this degree of change to occur in every sector of society and social lives, the few who did see this coming strangely find themselves in the same boat as all those who, grimly, are still in denial of what is going on.

    There will be fingers pointed in the land of judgement and recrimination. All you can do is stand clear…



    By the middle of this week, Mercury, ruler of communications and Mars, ruler of war and defence, will have entered into mutable (changeable) signs… although not before squaring in fixed (not very changeable) signs. Can we expect some very cross words between each other? Of course. The misunderstandings are everywhere because folks are quick to jump to obstinate conclusions, getting defensive over things they do not understand, refusing to listen to anything of which they disapprove or deem to be incredulous or foreign, just at first glance.

    In a way, this only highlights the bigger picture issues played out in Saturn’s current near-square to Uranus which, in fact, creates the basis for greater social disruption leading into 2021. The status quo fails to accept radical differences and changes, particularly in core values which are slate to shift, thanks to conflicting views on science and innovative technologies. But that’s another story, a long, very intricate story, whose implications I have already started to cover in my weekly Cosmic Bus webcasts. If you are not signed up to those, you are missing out and I advise that you sign up immediately. After all, why are you still here?This is again a massive turning-point week, and with respect to the last quarter Moon also in the fixed sign of Aquarius, we get a strong sense that social issues and technology are going to clash with matters over the economy and material security. Venus continues to square Neptune as she slows to retrograde for the first time since Oct 2018, creating all kinds of weird and wonderful, particularly in our relationships.

    Of course, the big-ticket items this week are the synced-up to station-together-retrogrades of social planets, Jupiter and Saturn. As many of us now try to make a return to the society we once knew before Jan-Feb, we will start to see where the opportunities for growth and pitfalls for demise stand in the wake of this global pandemic.

    Over the next 4 months, much will need to be adjusted and prepared as these two planets will turn again direct in mid-late September before they head out to form their great conjunction in the first degree of Aquarius (Dec 21). I have not only begun to discuss the sociological and personal effects of these next few months at length on the Cosmic Bus, but I provide you now with a link to this special article (replete with horoscope messages) with an aim to help guide you on to how best to manage this very confronting next few months.



    SATURN RETROGRADE: How much does it matter? https://angstoic.com/2019/04/saturn-...oes-it-matter/

    Let’s face it unless you are some kind of masochist, there’s nothing about Saturn that’s sexy or fun. The dude craves everything that’s lively and frivolous about life, not because he wants it for himself for he wouldn’t know how to enjoy it. Saturn just doesn’t want you to have it. He can think of better things you should be doing. Saturn’s attitude: if he can’t accept the nonsense, why should you?

    Well, that’s not entirely true… Saturn isn’t the natural enemy of mirth and laughter. It’s just that the old curmudgeon has such strict standards. His stiff and unyielding manner in how he goes about exacting those ‘standards of excellence’ is seldom easy on those who aren’t mindful, are lazy or delusional. Sooner or later, judgement comes down with a big stick and those who aren’t with it, cop a serve. Unless we are adhering to Saturn’s predefined ‘standards’, life can be tough. Conversely, for those that are adhering to Saturn’s gig, life is tough anyway.

    Similarly, transits from Saturn usually ain’t much joy either. It’s “strictly business” with the old man. His motto is to “treat ’em mean and keep ’em keen”. If there’s any relief, it’s often always after he’s done his bit – often not once, but three (3) times over. Saturn spends 11 months of every year in his retrograde shadow. In the aftermath of those gruelling, character defining instances, we can at least look back and say… “thank God I managed to survive that ordeal in one piece*”.
    *(assuming you survived it in one piece)

    And so it is… the Lord of karma, gravity and this dense, physically-defined exterior universe will occasionally slow down, come to complete standstill, then appear to slowly retrace the heavy footsteps traversed in the 6 – 7 zodiac degrees of the previous four months. This happens once every year, in whichever season the Sun appears to move through opposition to Saturn.

    This ‘retrograde’ process is actually useful – it provides an opportunity to seriously examine our recent efforts, review those things that were supposed to ‘matter’ during this time – at least to the exterior world, who expects so much of us. According to the laws of karma, we need to make some things matter, learn lessons, pay dues. Rx Saturn is mostly interested in those things which ought to have happened but just did not materialise as planned – probably because we goofed off, or tried to pull one over on the old man…Where Saturn is concerned (transits over planets in your chart), the postman always rings three times – just to make sure you got the message. It’s always about reaching maximum efficiency and utmost economy of thought, motion and matter. Whether you get it or not is another matter.

    If you are currently affected by a Saturn transit, just know that he is really only interested in things that are real and quantifiably verified. Focus on giving him that. Let him see the substance, and you’ll be fine. He cares not for your wild abstractions, fantasies and wishful thinking. Any ‘woowoo’ unrealistic elements in your life must go, or at least be put on pause until after this period. Pressure to sit and pass the test is integral before you can successfully move on to the next level. Just as the laws of gravity are very, very strict, Saturn ensures that only those things that can stand the ravages of of time will stand as true. Everything else must crumble and just fall away.

    If we refuse to substantiate or to let go of our insupportable fancies and high- falutin' pretensions, then the burden of guilt, grief, separation, depression, loss, ill-health, aging, even death may catch up with us.

    This three-pronged reality-check is Saturn’s signature ‘Standard Operational Procedure’. Saturn’s evenly timed 29.5-year orbit is such that, from earth’s perspective, he appears to cover the same stretch of 6 – 7 degrees of space 3 times, usually over an 11-month period just so we learn our lesson well, and the reality of our situation penetrates into the matter until it crystallises into form.



    [U]THE RETROGRADE CYCLE[U]:
    PHASE 1: RETROGRADE SHADOW – Feb 03 – May 11
    In this phase of Saturn’s transit, we start to lay down the premises of what will become our reality for the next few months. Brick by brick, we’re building our manifestation, paving the path that will become defined as what “the matter”.

    Naturally, we reap what we sow. Where we have take shortcuts or skipped vital duties or responsibilities, we may have to pay our dues later.

    PHASE 2: SATURN RETROGRADE – May 11 – September 28,
    During this period, we are made to retrace our steps. We are taken by the scruff of the neck and forced to review how well we have adhered to the expectations and ambitious plans lain down during Saturn’s entry into the shadow phase.

    Saturn’s conjunction to the South Node during this entire period indicates that personal ambitions may not be synchronous with the prevailing cultural attitudes. We would be wise to stay mindful of the propensity for punishment and troublesome repercussions if going against the system.

    Listen to your conscience:

    Have you been living up to what the exterior world requires from you?
    Have you been dishing out expectations to others, trying to hold them accountable? Have you been impeccable in your judgement of others?
    Has there some slacking, avoidance, stretching of facts, overspending of resources; procrastination; double standards in your relationships; some good, ol’-fashioned moral hypocrisy’ going down?
    Best advice is to knuckle down, head down to the basement and focus on actually accomplishing something definitively ‘you’. Make it the most extraordinary thing you are capable of doing – some achievement which could one day put you in a class all of your own.

    PHASE 3: September 28 – Jan 03, 2021
    The final pass over the same point is do or die. Saturn is merciless, and if it ain’t real, it ain’t happening. This could be painful, shameful and humiliating to the ego, but the spirit knows… it’s just how this business works. Ultimately, Saturn in Capricorn is pushing us to question those patriarchal institutions, governments, corporate or corporeal bodies that appear to have outlived their usefulness.

    In the meantime, earnest, steady effort is necessary to come up with the means to accomplish this successfully. Sometimes we are called to slow down and take a more conservative, cautious, frugal approach just to make things work, particularly after the retrograde period is over.

    It may not be fun at the time, but hey… you’ll see – “it’s character-building”.

    In a way, Saturn does retrogrades better than all the other planets. It’s like he gives us a second chance to examine and improve the ever-evolving relationship between the ego (exterior-defined self) and the soul (internal self). Of course it will hurt, but then, how else are we supposed to learn? "

    VENUS RETROGRADE IN GEMINI: Return To Sender
    https://angstoic.com/2020/05/venus-r...urn-to-sender/


    "Whilst charming, amiable and co-operative, Venus in Gemini can typically be quite flippant and superficial in her affairs. Concerned greatly with an eloquent image or of others’ opinions rather than true worth, she flits and flutters from one love interest to another just to keep it ‘interesting’.

    Don’t be surprised if (by the end of this period) you’ve not looked up every old flame, all the way back to that 8th-grade crush to see how they are faring in the world, comparing notes on who’s more socially acceptable now, and then move on. A sustained square from Neptune throughout much of May may be initially deceiving, but will not allow us to glamourise images at all. Not an ideal time to invest or enter a relationship, especially if we are thinking of returning to something of the old (the sheen will quickly wear off).

    Those with mutable planets (VIRGO, GEMINI, SADGE, PISCES) between 5° – 22° are most affected by this transit…



    KARMIC RENEWAL
    When Venus is retrograde, she begins her symbolic descent to the underworld, her love-consciousness directed down different avenues, or back to the past to clear any residual influences on the present. By the end of the process, she returns feeling replenished and renewed. Her mission is to produce a reconstruction of old complexes or troubling dynamics, especially in our relationships, that we may have felt we had already mastered but in a karmic sense still haunt or influence us subconsciously.

    Venus last retrograded Gemini precisely 8 years ago, when she famously transited across the face of the Sun (Jun 6, 2012). Unresolved relationship complexes prevalent at that time could resurface at this time. You may gain insight into Venus’ influence on your life by reflecting on the specifics of your love circumstances during that time. How much have you evolved in understanding how your heart works and what you value?

    When Venus enters her retrograde cycle, we are invited to investigate the darker or hidden dimensions of ourselves, and others – often resulting in the unveiling of shadow matter projected onto other people around us. This allows us to adopt a different lens from which to observe ourselves and those with whom we interact. We want to be receptive to these deeper perceptions, and simply take it all in as opposed to trying to change things during the actual retrograde.

    It’s best to use the retrograde period for objective witnessing with the intent to see what’s going on with fresh eyes. Since our exterior relationships reflect our own internal dynamics, the most enlightened perception would be to see any flaws or ‘shadows’ (demons) as our own and to learn to integrate and heal these within ourselves.

    Because the Venus cycle itself is so complex, it can be challenging to make rational sense of “why” we must sometimes undergo such awful challenges in our affairs. Often, there is some unfinished business that we have to settle. If one is privy to the deeper dynamics of their horoscope, then it can often become clear what type of role the situation or individual is playing, and what can be done to support healing, reparation, resolution, and understanding.

    MADE WHOLE AGAIN
    By the end of his retrograde cycle, we are either satisfied with ourselves or steeped in tortuous self-judgement and condemnation. Much depends on how we can use this period to reconcile the parts of ourselves we love with those we feel are of none or little value.

    'The very picture of a whole person is one who can drink wine, dance on the beach, sing in the rain and at the same time enjoy the depths of understanding and wisdom that belong to the sage. Half of humanity has been accepting the inner world but denying the outer world. The other half of humanity has been accepting the material world and denying the inner world. Both are half and no person who is half can be contented. You have to be whole: rich in the body, rich in science, rich in meditation, rich in consciousness.'

    ~OSHO "

    Subject: Are you observing clearly what is really going on, or are you taking sides?
    5/21/20
    https://app.getresponse.com/view.htm...hv4&z=EQgxyFo&

    "Greetings fellow travellers,

    Energies are coming together into clusters from this weekend, sparking off all kinds of new activities, igniting measures and forging alliances that may or may not turn out to be exactly what we bargained for. It will be hard not to engage, take sides. As usual, the more we are pulled toward this way or that by the cosmic tides, the greater our propensity to experience some degree of conflict.

    No, nothing is as it seems. We want to know what's going on, be informed, but the current lunation's emphasis in GEMINI means trickery and duplicitousness are afoot. Information is being artfully twisted when ruler MERCURY, now conjunct a retrograde VENUS come into square with NEPTUNE. People's naivety and wishful thinking are foolishly seduced into the sweet deception and outright fraudulence that is currently riddling through the hearts and minds of many, content to be kept blissfully in the dark, fed on a steady diet of propagandised fear and mind-control, nourished only with the contrived madness of carefully selected sources.

    The cluster of planets PLUTO/JUPITER/PALLAS ATHENA/SATURN, retrograding in Capricorn/Aquarius indicates just how thick and planned out the conspiracy is. It exists. The insidious design to say nothing about an issue that should be generally known exists in all of us. It is a rich, powerful, yet dark and foreboding sense that the world we once knew is at its most profound, most conclusive stages of corruption and decay. We can harness this energy to help play our part in making tremendous changes or we lose control entirely, let it transform us into horrible monsters.

    As human beings, we conduct ritual ceremonies to celebrate joyous tribal festivities, seasonal turning points and significant personal milestones. Our customary observances create a forum for the release of our most complicated feelings of ecstasy or trauma, so we do not have to carry those feelings around with us forever. We also gather as a tribe to muster our collective anger, rage, take it to war against any perceived threat or oppression.

    When sacred rites are being fundamentally denied, people begin to behave erratically. Squares from CHIRON, ERIS and URANUS in Aries/Taurus will soon be joined by MARS for the second half of the year when the war god enters his fiery domicile himself to go through his own ritual retrograde.

    Only NEPTUNE stands between the two tribes.

    We are only two weeks away from eclipse season.
    If you believe in rituals to mark a special event, then the NEW MOON, only hours away (Fri 17:39UTC) from exact alignment at 02°♊05', provides the most auspicious opportunity to conduct a ceremony all of your own, make a strong intention and celebrate the jewel of infinity in a single most potent moment. Your meditation can become a device by which you can repair and reconstruct your own neural and emotional pathways.

    So…
    Sit somewhere peaceful.
    Purposely, begin to deeply breathe your Self back into your centre.
    Feel your mind and spirit come together, in complete alignment throughout the spine of your entire body,
    Bring your being into complete stillness…
    Allow yourself to sit, ask spirit to sit with you, within you be guided to formulate a clear intention,
    create mindful coherence between body and soul
    Accept that you must soon launch into action,
    become a conduit for the great cosmic intent
    play your part in a way that most strongly resonates
    through you,
    for you,
    and for all around you.

    Blessings to you on this New Moon… xx"

    The Future Ain’t What It Used To Be – THE WEEK AHEAD: Jun 1-7
    https://angstoic.com/2020/06/the-fut...ahead-jun-1-7/

    "Get the feeling we’ve entered eclipse season?

    Yes, this month promises to be a tumultuous month. The North Node Solar Eclipse at 00°Cancer21′ (June 21) is flanked by two gnarly penumbral lunar eclipses. The first (Jun 5) ushering us into a brand new phase of soul-growth, while the second (Jul 5) is a fitting finale to the learnings of the past 18 months.

    As we head into these eclipses, we must stay mindful of events likely to catch us off guard. Eclipses are known to throw curveballs our way, particularly if they form tight aspects to our natal planets. We are also likely to react, sometimes irrationally and uncontrollably to what may otherwise be a familiar situation. Before launching into action or defence, it pays to take a breath and ask “what if I choose to sit this out, not engage?”



    TRANSIT ANALYSIS:
    ✦ MONDAY:

    Sun Sesquisquare Jupiter: The “Should have quit while ahead” aspect. Even those at the top eventually lose the coin toss and once the luck runs out, losses seem to multiply. Ignorance, a false sense of importance or greed taken too far can bring about demise.

    Node Conjunction Vesta: A new sense of respect for the rights of those whom, in the past, we took for granted or considered insignificant (if at all). Vesta reminds us that devoted service to others is not just for the sake of our own survival but for the preservation of our society.

    ✦ TUESDAY:
    The Libra Moon squares the Jupiter/Pluto/Pallas/Saturn cluster. Here, the plot thickens, as lawmakers, billionaires, political strategists and governments all secretly in cahoots get the sense that the wave of public emotion is turning against them. Improved public relations is one thing, but Capricorn demands to see substance and merit, not just displays of nicety and token gestures.

    ✦ WEDNESDAY:
    Venus Square Mars: Venus in Gemini prefers facts. Having spent the last four weeks stationed at ~90º to Neptune has made the love goddess extremely sensitive and intolerant to things she can not rationally comprehend.

    Venus feels neither enamoured nor enriched by the outlandish assertions posed by Mars in Pisces. Mars seems equally startled by her vapid and callous comments towards him. Venus is turned off by his hyper-defensiveness and convoluted actions. Particularly between the gender, this creates a strange state of sexual tension and if they can’t somehow ‘find a fix’ can lead to squabbles and dealbreakers

    ℞etrograde Venus finally returns to the morning sky after inferior conjunction to the Sun, forming a New Venus (much like a New Moon) in our lives. Generally, a powerful day to go within and set intentions for what we might wish to magnetise into our life for the new 18-month cycle ahead, our intention is also fraught by the perils of a Mars square**.
    **The square between Mars/Venus is a disruptive aspect. Any conflict prompts that we try harder to get our ‘facts’ straight if we want to maintain relations, especially if our desires are motivated by kooky abstractions and ungroundedness.

    There is every chance this week that if you are somehow unhappy in your personal affairs with others that you will attract troubles. Be prepared to be admonished for failing to measure up to standard in your personal inadequacies or insecurities.

    Pallas Athena regresses into Capricorn: This politically shrewd little asteroid has been in the Capricorn mix since the start of the year, dipping briefly into Aquarius through May.

    The coincidental triple conjunction occurs three (3) times in 2020. Super rare to see, but when you do, be sure to know that autocrats, plutocrats, technocrats, whetever-crats are plotting and-a-scheming something big. What’s it gonna be?

    Pallas’ return to Capricorn sees a tight reunion with Jupiter and Pluto (Jul 3) around the time Saturn returns to Capricorn (Jul 1), and just a couple days before the second lunar eclipse at 13°♑38′ Capricorn (Jul 5).
    Keywords for Capricorn: Pragmatic, ambitious, disciplined, stoic, cynical and pessimistic.
    Operative Capricorn modality: Authoritarianism, confinement, steadfast governance, frugalism, goal-oriented only.

    ✦ FRIDAY:
    Mercury Sextile Uranus: Anything that restricts mental freedom needs an outlet. Puzzling problems find solutions.

    Mercury Square Chiron: Old wounds and traumas easily triggered by a few inconsiderate words/tweets. Statements are misinterpreted, taken the wrong way or reveal incredible ignorance. Crazy arguments.

    PENUMBRAL LUNAR ECLIPSE at 15°♐34′: This epic Full Moon in mutable signs experiences a slight hint of the earth shadow, officially launching us into Eclipse season. Due to its 8th harmonic syndrome (see red lines above) highlights tension in themes that will be central to the Gemini North/Sadge South Node emphasis over the next 18 months. There’s a lot of hype and hyperbole about what’s true or false, right and wrong, good and evil that will seek to be straightened out with facts and plain, old-fashioned straight talk, that’s for sure.

    WARNING: With both malefics Mars and Saturn in the mix, this lunation could take a very sinister, even violent turn. If last week’s Quarter Moon brought out nasty stuff, this one promises to call in the coast guard to settle disputes. In fact, as I write this, I am hearing that the United States is imposing curfews due to race riots. Not a good time to start anything, and perhaps one might wish to self-isolate from everyone to at least keep some semblance of sanity.

    ✦ SATURDAY:
    Mars Semisquare Saturn: Inability to master irritations and frustrations shows immense immaturity. Any aggressive action or hostility is summarily ‘punished’ by authorities and police.

    Sun Sesquisquare Saturn: This aspect reveals just how threatening those in authority can be when manipulating others purely from selfish motives to maintain power.

    Sun Square Mars: Verbose temper tantrums and scenes of utter disgust in defiance when things don’t go exactly as desired.

    ✦ SUNDAY:
    Venus Sesquisquare Jupiter: Superficial displays of martyrdom or postured charitable acts to earn political ‘brownie points’ are transparent. Those straightforward in their efforts would be more sincere.

    SYNOPSIS:
    The build-up of themes developing throughout the last week comes to a head this week. Amidst the crisis of climate change, a global pandemic, a struggling economy, the disintegration of governments, institutions and now small businesses, the ongoing social injustices, the aggravated protests and rioting [gasp] is an immutable universal truth as to who is responsible.

    Of course, we will want to blame someone but to solve this we must first come face to face with our complicity and ignorance, again without blame. Only by stripping down layers and layers of opinions, assertions, selective biases and personal agendas to live and let die will we ever allow the truth to come dancing with us.

    The real test of our knowledge, or ‘truth’, is not whether or not it’s ‘true’ but whether it serves to empower us. Any scientific expert or mathematician will tell you that no theory is ever 100% correct. As such, assuming that we know ‘the truth’ is not usually a good gauge of anything. The real test for knowledge is how we can apply it. Any theory that empowers us to do new things validates our knowledge.

    Over the decades, science and knowledge have granted us many exciting new tools. Some are mental tools, such as those used to gather data to predict things like voting results, market trends, death rates and economic growth. More importantly, science has granted us technological tools. The connection between science and technology is now so tightly enmeshed that these days we find it hard to separate the two. In fact, we seek to know only to expedite our technology to take us faster, higher, better, longer.

    There are some who know the power of using technology to advance the cause of humanity’s growth and development. There are some who know the power of using technology to advance their own, personal agendas. And then, there are the many who haven’t a clue as to what’s going on, have no interest in science, just go on assumptions, hearsay and incomplete religious fairy tales, filled incomprehensible nonsense… They may use the technology to expedite their superstitious ideas, unaware they are indeed being ‘used by the technology’.

    I can say that’s just another story, but it’s a story I cannot begin to tell unless people are on board with me on this wonderful quest. That’s why I do the bus, now weekly. I could just about do it daily. I would save me a lot of writing, lol.

    Anyway, as we sail into these eclipses, I will reiterate my foreword. The events of the week/month ahead cannot be easily predicted since the world is currently at its most chaotic. So many forces are simultaneously at work, many of them hidden under a cloak of darkness, steeped in ignorance, driven by centuries of seething resentment, rage and despair over traumas, violations and gross injustices. The interactive nature of these events is so complex that even the tiniest disruption to one tiny heart could ignite an atomic explosion that has the power to turn the entire course of history. We must know that.

    As we go into this week, ask yourself what would happen if you chose not to contribute to the chaos and disorder? What might happen if you mindfully, peacefully chose to sit this one out?

    Blessings, and may you have an amazing week xx "

    PENUMBRAL LUNAR ECLIPSE at 15°34' SAGITTARIUS
    The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth is out there... if you care to listen
    6/4/20
    https://app.getresponse.com/view.htm...hv4&z=EIYUhKQ&

    "Greetings fellow travellers,

    Are these simply the most exciting times we are in? If you sit still, you can literally hear the rumblings of this epic moment shaking the foundations of all history and past culture underneath your feet.

    We are seeking some truth, and as we enter the new paradigm of consciousness, it is interesting to watch the shift between those willing to move forward with a sense of curiosity and those still clinging, somewhat desperately by their confounded beliefs to the crumbling ruins of the past.

    In less than 24 hours, a PENUMBRAL LUNAR ECLIPSE will form at 15°34′ SAGITTARIUS, receiving a supertight T-Square from MARS 15°♓52′ – planet of war, fire, fury, aggression and defence and a semisquare from SATURN 01°♒24’℞, the planet of restriction, limitation, fear and control…



    These eclipses are part of the same SAROS series that last occurred on exactly the same dates in Jun/Jul of 2001. They include the Jun 21 Solar Eclipse, 00°♋21‘ (Annular), and the Jul 4 Lunar Eclipse 13°♑38′ (Penumbral).

    Here are some things we definitely know about eclipses:
    Eclipses occur when the Sun, Moon and Earth all come into direct alignment.
    They can be total, annular or partial (Solar), or total, partial or penumbral (Lunar).
    A Solar Eclipse occurs when the New Moon (Sun/Moon conjunction) forms within 18.5 degrees of one of the Lunar Nodes (points where the orbit of the Moon crosses the ecliptic).
    A Lunar Eclipse occurs when the Full Moon (Sun/Moon opposition) forms within roughly 12 degrees of the Lunar Nodes, as the Earth comes directly between the Sun and Moon. The Moon appears dark red while in the Earth’s shadow.
    The actual shadow phase of eclipses lasts between 3-4 hours from start to the end.
    There are usually two Solar Eclipses a year, preceded or followed (and sometimes both) by a Lunar Eclipses two weeks before/after.
    Eclipses actually follow a strange pattern called a Saros Cycle which repeats every 19 years. Consecutive Eclipses belong to different families of eclipses which last between 1200 and 1600 years and contain from 69 to 89 eclipses. There are 38-42 Saros Cycles active at any given time, each at different stages of their evolution. The pattern of Saros Cycles is very complicated.
    The closer an eclipse falls near the Nodes (by conjunction/opposition) the more powerful its effects upon us.
    The exact degree of the eclipse leaves an astrological ‘memory’ which then becomes triggered/activated by transits, either prior or after the event. (eg. observe effects as planets cross 18° Pisces 57′.
    Eclipses merged with any other transiting planets (eg, conjunction to Chiron) tend to infuse a strong flavour of that planet’s energy into their usual effect.
    The ‘usual’ effect of the eclipse is to leave a phenomenal impact on our individual lives. Matters affected by the astrological natal house of your chart where the eclipse falls seem to get enormous attention.
    Effects actually start to show months before the actual eclipse, staying in theme for up to 2 years, and manage to irrevocably transform our lives and lifestyles.
    If an eclipse aligns with one of your planets then this is a significant moment in your life (according to the nature of that planet.) The proximity of the alignment increases the potency. Check which house in your chart is ruled by that natal planet, and any aspects made by that planet. It is possible, if this is a highly significant ruling planet (rules Sun, Moon or points on the Asc/MC axis), or holds many aspects, that this is an important time which could transform many aspects of your life.
    Eclipses on your Sun are critical. If one falls on (or near) your birthday, know this will be a critical year for you (Sun rules your basic life-force and your entire identity structure). The sign/house/aspects of your natal Sun provide more distinct clues on how exactly you may be affected, but health, confidence, decision-making power and general vitality are critical factors to watch during Sun contacts.
    Eclipses on your Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars will also be felt most personally, and the flavour of the eclipse (Solar/Lunar – North/South Node) will add weight or embellish the potency of the event in different ways. Solar eclipses activate or energise a latent form of expression and thus augur a life-changing new field of experience for us, whilst Lunar eclipses force us to reflect on key internal/emotional turning points and often indicate major endings. Eclipses tied to the North Node are more about receiving, South is more about giving.
    Whilst New Moons are generally a good time to initiate/launch an event or enterprise, Solar Eclipses are NOT such a good time for this. Anything started now (or just prior) stands to be ‘eclipsed’ by a seemingly unexpected environmental/circumstantial factor, creating a “rain on the parade” effect.
    Always remember that the intense power of the Sun, combined with the physical proximity of the Moon is what makes lunations feel like a totally personal experience, and whilst these celestial events affect you in a most personal way, their highly illuminating effect during eclipses brings those personal affairs to shine much brighter out in the open than usual.Our lives are transforming throughout and as a result of events coming to a head through this intense eclipse period. As we sail through these next few weeks it may feel like you can hear the passage of time, of all of life passing you by. One person exits, another emerges. One thought flits away and another immediately takes its place. One memory bids farewell and another one is conjured up, out of the blue. The days roll out in procession, slowly wearing us down until we are subtly, surely become remade.

    Everything is in a state of flux. Nothing is still. Time becomes lost and dissipates into the sea like dead grains of sand, worn down from sides of cliffs – structures that once held up the towering dynasties of our past civilisations, one after another giving way and vanishing into the abyss.

    We are privileged to be here, at this epochal present moment. If we care to listen, we can hear the sound of time itself, dying.

    Blessings, and may you have an amazing Full Moon eclipse xx"

    Total Eclipse of the Heart: THE WEEK AHEAD
    Jun 15-21
    https://angstoic.com/2020/06/total-e...ead-jun-15-21/

    "What a crazy, chaotic time to be alive. Sure, one may say that’s just my opinion, but as objective as I’d like to remain on the events going on around me, I’m seeing an increasing trend towards crowd madness and rising acts of hysteria and violence. Collective anguish and highly-politicised mob behaviour are definitely on the rise everywhere in the world. We cannot deny or ignore this – regardless of the official instruction.

    Although I understand the roots of some of the disturbing, painful, triggersome consequences of current events, I am here to say that the more drawn we are to engaging in the extremes, the more dramatic and violent our reactions are set to become.

    I do understand the pressures on the mundane world. There is definitely a great, cosmic agenda to bring all divisive matters on this planet to a head now, whether they are rooted in political, religious or biological differences. Individuals are becoming highly energised to assist and deploy themselves into this great cosmic levelling of all species. Those caught up in the crippling dimensions of fear, separation, judgement and aspersion are currently summoning forces, mustering minds into clusters and formations, which will mount behind respective ideological battle lines, ready to wage unholy war.

    In the lower strata of consciousness, people are ever so confused and disoriented by the onslaught of disinformation and propaganda designed to frighten them. There is no way to separate what’s true and what’s not among those who are easily lead, and the choice to turn off rather than to try to listen to all sides becomes a major hurdle. It is a perplexing conundrum, and this week challenges us at the core of our existence – our sense of safety and security.

    Where does this leave our ability to communicate clearly and our relationship to the media which informs us? Our sources of information are now extremely divided, hated, mistrusted and increasingly struggling to be believed.



    ✦MONDAY:

    Pluto Square Eris: In this second partile, we examine who benefits and who loses out in the ultimate contest for survival. Who upgrades to become the ‘ultimate superhuman’ is anyone’s guess. I have covered the principles of this most supernatural process here, in this special article.

    Sun Quincunx Pluto: The cultural ideas and memes; values of a prior generation, the prevailing values of the ‘masses’, grind against the values of ‘the father’, or our inherited values. Great psychological stress, shared by the masses, leads us to phenomenal changes – a transformation of mind, body and collective spirit.

    ✦ TUESDAY:
    Sun Quincunx Jupiter: Strains in identifying with current beliefs and laws because they present a fundamental barrier to personal growth. Deep inside us lies every darkness, every light. It is the choices of our sentience that decide who or what we will be. If we can’t understand ourselves as an individual, sentient being, how can we really share of ourselves in the intersubjective reality of today’s society?

    ✦ THURSDAY:
    Mercury Stations to Retrograde: Mercury reaches 14°46′ Cancer and, until Jul 12, turns retrograde. Our most personal, privately-held thoughts and ideas, which have been instinctively communicated since the beginning of this month, become even more subjectified to the point where they dredge up past hurts, excite, then continue to aggravate wounds.



    By July, our most subjective thoughts and opinions and intersubjective beliefs and values become guarded and pointed against those held by others. These not only carry a potent charge upon what needs healing within and between us, but we often plunge into insult without even knowing it. Hurtful arguments ensue.

    Mars Sextile Pluto: Mars is quite reticent to take any direct action in the evasive, empathetic Pisces. A sextile to Pluto can be very useful towards diverting attention away from external tensions and regenerating the spiritual focus towards greater harmony and purpose. Immense strength of will is necessary to come to a deeper, more purposeful set of intentions on how you, as an individual, are inclined to act during this time. Are your motives coming from a reverential fear to protect yourself/family or to assist in the evolution and transformation of the collective?

    ✦ FRIDAY:
    Mars Semisquare Uranus: Look out for the intrepid reporter who exposes those in positions of authority. There is a fearlessness of controversy, where no story is too insignificant to pursue if it promises excitement and hints at scandal.


    Mars sextile Jupiter/Pluto: Active schemes to convert all of society towards a certain agenda, which were spearheaded in late March when Mars was conjunct to Jupiter/Pluto, are now well underway by the powermongers and plutocrats of our world. The conspiracy to dominate the masses using new edicts and laws is real. Many distractions in the foreground guarantee that, in the background, questionable laws are sneakily passed and corrupt practices overlooked/ignored.



    ✦SATURDAY:
    Sun Conjunction Node: A major event in the natural world that affects us all provides greater scope for understanding our collective destiny. It will take special, inclusive eyes to see that we are being shaken out of our karmic rut as the Gemini North Node forces us to let go of strong, self-righteous attitudes and dogmas and start looking at the world through the perspective of others; “walk a mile in another’s shoes”, so to speak.

    Mars Sextile Jupiter: The opinions and propaganda campaigns of politicians, publicists, damage-control missionaries, and champions of ‘social justice’ are charged with the fiery, bluff enthusiasm of this aspect.

    Sun Ingress into Cancer: This is the Solstice point (World Axis), a time when domestic priorities become universally conspicuous. Under Cancer, safety and security become pressing concerns, particularly in a year when the Solstice point coincides with a rare Solar eclipse.

    ✦ SUNDAY:

    ANNULAR SOLAR ECLIPSE: In our last Cosmic Bus webinar, we spoke extensively on the significance of this, the most powerful lunation of 2020, covering topics such as:

    ✦ the significance of Solstices and Equinoxes, and the potency of the Aries point (World Axis)
    ✦ the evolutionary purpose of the past 18 months with Cancer North Node and Capricorn South Node
    ✦ the 2020 Capricorn stellium and the disintegrating 3D constructs
    ✦ evolving from Sagittarius South Node into Gemini North Node
    ✦ Understanding the nature and psychological motives of all things Cancer; habits, habitats, crabholes and the value of the COVID19 lockdown
    ✦ discussion on the power of this ANNULAR SOLAR ECLIPSE at 00°♋21′, Sunday, June 21, 06:42 UTC and its associated lunar eclipses
    ✦ the grand-planned fear-pandemic and the social disruptions of the past few months
    A brief introduction to key upcoming transits:
    ✦ Saturn retrograding out of Aquarius and re-entering Capricorn
    ✦ Mercury’s retrograde in Cancer
    ✦ Mars and Chiron in Aries, Mars retrograde, Eris and squares to Capricorn stellium
    ✦ Mercury squaring Mars/Chiron in Aries during most of July
    ✦ the importance of meditation, reflection, and letting go of our past baggage.

    Sun Quincunx Saturn: plagued with health concerns and inferiority issues, we become haunted by anxiety and fear for no apparent reason. Irrational insecurities and anxiety takes hold of our decision-making.

    ✦ NEXT WEEK: (join me on this Thu/Fri’s Cosmic Bus)
    Neptune Stations to Retrograde:
    Venus Stations to go Direct:
    Mars Squares the Nodes:
    Mars Ingresses into Aries:
    SYNOPSIS:
    At the height of these eclipses, it is apparent that our world is plunged into a chaotic, turbulent state. This is a necessary part of every revolution, when elements of an expiring ‘law & order’ are determinedly collapsing to make way for a new paradigm.

    I will respectfully reserve my succinct interpretation of the gruelling process ahead of us for those subscribed to my special horoscope readings and weekly webinars, where I offer in-depth analyses and tools on how to hold ourselves in an empowered, neutral state.

    If we cannot source purely from a meditative state of well-being, understanding, kindness and acceptance; if we are unable to show empathy and co-operation, we risk the egotistical descent into the divisive maelstrom of superficiality, insignificant themes and meaningless battles with everyone around us. We will become so inflamed and aggravated that we combust into raging fires, both inside and out. It behoves us to observe our innermost feelings, powerfully charged towards the end of this week by the formidable Solar Eclipse and Mars’ extensive transit through his domicile, Aries.

    The earth and all its (surviving) creatures are shifting towards a greater sense of equality and egalitarianism. This cannot be limited only to the definitions of our family, clan, nation, race, species etc. Unconditional acceptance is the order of the new world that awaits us. In the meantime, we must avoid engaging in divisive socio-political tribalism and inflammatory partisan wars. To feel excluded, ignored, snubbed and denied is not only unkind, but it is fuelling the anguish which charges many of us into the auspices of wild, pernicious reactions.

    Blessings, and may you have an amazing Solstice week xx "

    TWO ECLIPSES IN JUNE 2020 - PART 2
    (This info is not from Ang Stoic, it's from this site:
    https://www.heavenandearthcommunity.co.uk/welcome
    ...but I found it to be intriguing)


    Solstice on 20th June at 21:43 UT/GMT (22:43 BST)
    Solar Annular Eclipse on 21st June - Maximum Eclipse at 06:39:59 UT/GMT (07:39:59 BST)
    Sun – Moon exact conjunction at 06:41:18 UT/GMT (07:41:18 BST)
    For more data: https://www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/...20%3A05%3A23Z\



    "Following on from the 5th June Lunar Eclipse, a Solar Eclipse occurs on 21st June, just a few hours after the Summer Solstice on 20th. The Eclipse path begins over the Central African Republic, then passes over Congo, South Sudan, Ethiopia, Yemen and Oman; then over Pakistan, Northern India and Tibet, where Maximum Eclipse occurs just 80 miles east-south-east of Mt. Kailas. Four minutes later, it passes Mt. Kailas



    Mt. Kailas is the planetary Crown Chakra, according to Robert Coon (http://earthchakras.org/Seven-Chakras.php). It lies on the Great Female Dragon / Rainbow Serpent energy line that encircles the Earth. In the UK, we know this as the Michael - Mary line, that runs across southern England from near Land’s End to the Norfolk coast, passing through the Hurlers Stone Circles in Cornwall, on its way to Glastonbury, Avebury and Bury St. Edmunds. After Mt. Kailas, the Eclipse path crosses southern China and Taiwan, ending 175 miles east of Guam, in the Pacific Ocean.

    The 5th June Lunar Eclipse was preparing us at the emotional level, on order to help us more easily integrate the wider shift in consciousness, at the Solar Eclipse. This Eclipse heralds a massive shift in collective consciousness, coming just a few hours after the Solstice.

    If we have been functioning mainly at the ego level, this may feel a bit like having the rug pulled out from under us. Just after the rising energy of Summer reaches its peak in the Northern Hemisphere, the Eclipse will temporarily “switch off” the Earth’s energy grids for a “planetary reboot”. To the ego-self, as we approach the Solstice, we may feel that at last we can begin to move forward, to get on with fulfilling our personal agendas, needs and wants. We may feel that at last we can “Get It Done” (whatever that means). But within a matter of just 9 hours, this may all start to fall apart again! With the Sun and Moon’s energies focussed around the planetary Crown Chakra of Mount Kailas at maximum Eclipse, there is the potential for a major spiritual awakening for the whole planet.

    Also occurring, around the time of maximum Eclipse, the retrograde conjunction of Pallas Athene, Pluto, Jupiter and Saturn will be passing, “like a thief in the night” over Washington DC, between 02:30 to 03:20 EDT (06:30 - 07:20 UT/GMT; 07:30 - 08:20 BST), initiating the final stages in the collapse of the outmoded power structures that have been so desperately trying to maintain the old paradigm from the Age of Pisces, the door to which was closed at the December 2012 Solstice. Since then, it is as if the powers-that-be have been attempting to re-animate a corpse!

    The dowser, David Cowan’s diagram (above) of the energy lines, running horizontally across the USA, indicates how they form an energetic link between the Great Male Plumed Serpent, in the Nevada desert, and the Great Female Rainbow Serpent, in the Azores. These lines, which pass through the main seats of power in Washington DC have been used to hold and / or manipulate the balance of power between these two great planetary dragon lines for centuries, so that whatever occurs in Washington, DC affects all of the world’s energy grids, both to east and west. There may originally have been some fine intentions behind these Masonic alignments that were set up along these energy lines when Washington was established as the capital of the USA. Over the centuries, those good intentions have become increasingly corrupted, and the notion of the USA holding a position of guardianship and service towards maintaining the balance of the Earth’s energy grids has been replaced by a growing misuse of the power that these sacred alignments confer.

    For the Southern Hemisphere, this Solar Eclipse occurs just after their Winter Solstice, which means that the deepening that always occurs at a Winter Solstice will be able to move even deeper, without the same levels of ego resistance that is likely to be present in the northern hemisphere.

    Those that know me will know that I seldom use the much bandied-about expression, “opening a portal”. However, this Eclipse will certainly open a major portal, allowing the energies of Pure Spirit to initiate the anchoring of the new paradigm into the Earth grids, through the planetary Crown Chakra of Mt. Kailas. At an Annular Eclipse, the Moon lies slightly further from the Earth than at a Total Eclipse, so that the Moon’s disk only obscures the centre of the Sun, leaving a ring, crown, or corona of light around the Moon’s dark disk. So, it will appear like a Crown of Light in the Heavens, directly above the Earth’s planetary Crown Chakra – As Above, So Below.

    At an Annular Eclipse, the Moon is not close enough for its shadow of totality (the umbra) to reach down to touch the surface of the Earth. The focus of the umbral shadow remains above the Earth, in the magnetosphere. A fainter shadow, called the ‘antumbra’ does touch the Earth (see diagram) and describes the Eclipse path.

    As the retrograde conjunction of the 4 planets in Capricorn pass over the centres of power in Washington DC, they will send energetic ripples to release negativity throughout the world’s great energy grids, creating a “crack in everything” to allow the Light to flow, through Mt. Kailas, into the energetic layers of Mother Earth’s magnetic field and her subtle energy bodies. This incoming Light will take time to become fully anchored into the Earth grids, gradually emerging into collective awareness by the time of the Jupiter – Saturn conjunction that occurs on 21st December, just a few hours after the northern hemisphere Winter Solstice / southern hemisphere Summer Solstice.

    During this Solar Annular Eclipse, the Sun and Moon are within 1° of conjunction with Menkalinan, the second brightest (beta) star in the constellation of Auriga, the Charioteer. The Moon’s North Node, showing our direction forward, will be conjunct with Betelgeuse, the brightest (alpha) star in the constellation of Orion. These star energies will filter through into our collective consciousness, as the brightness of the Sun (representing the ego-self) becomes eclipsed. Both Betelgeuse and Menkalinan are at the right shoulder of their respective constellation figures. At maximum Eclipse, the duration of the shadow, passing over Mt. Kailas, will only last for 38.2 seconds, so the energetic changes will occur “in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump” (1 Corinthians chap15, v52 – King James Bible).




    Betelgeuse is at Orion’s right shoulder, from where he reaches up to the point in Space where the Ecliptic path of the Planets’ orbits around the Sun intersects with the Galactic Equator. [U]Orion reaches up to open the spiritual doorway, created by the Moon’s North Node. This occurs at the pivotal point of the Solstice, where the Ecliptic plane of our soul’s evolutionary journey, intersects with the Galactic plane of the Spirit Path that shows our route back to Oneness with all beings. This Solstice Eclipse is a moment of spiritual choice. Do we choose to continue in our usual “normal” behaviour patterns of ego based self-interest, or do we choose to step off into the unknown to follow the call of our individual / undivided Spirit on the journey back to realising our Oneness with all beings?

    Below the Ecliptic path, Betelgeuse, at Orion’s right shoulder, is pulling into manifestation our individual choice about the potentials offered by the Solar Eclipse, anchoring them into our physical reality through the Celestial Equator, which intersects the stars at Orion’s belt.

    Meanwhile, above the Ecliptic path, Menkalinan, the "shoulder of the rein-holder" in Auriga the Charioteer, opens the possibility for the eclipsed Sun to enable us to let go of the ego-self, to be carried along the Galactic Equator, the Spirit Path that leads towards liberation and the conscious acceptance of our Oneness. Traditionally, Menkalinan is said to be enterprising, combative and often destructive. It can bring ruin, disgrace and even violent death. One assumes that it is more likely to manifest these negative qualities, when one’s combative nature makes one refuse to acknowledge, or acquiesce to the call of the Spirit. (Boris Johnson has his Sun and Venus conjunct Menkalinan, so this will be an interesting Eclipse for him, and by extension for the whole UK.)

    At its best, this star is said to indicate great initiative and enthusiasm; but due to its impulsiveness and recklessness, caution and objective second thoughts are required before any action is taken. The constellation of Auriga is depicted in Tarot card VII, the Chariot. It shows the chariot, being drawn by two complementary (yin and yang) horses, which later were turned into sphinxes. These creatures represent the dualism of the workings of the human mind, attributed to Gemini (the Twins), the constellation that lies below Auriga. (Traditionally the Chariot is said to be associated with Cancer, but this is clearly a misdirection.) The driver of the Chariot holds no reins to control the direction of movement of the horses / sphinxes. Either he is controlling them by an act of will, or else they will have free rein to run out of control, pulling the chariot first in one direction, then another. The staff that the charioteer holds in his right hand shows his connection with Spirit, from where he derives his power. But if that connection with Spirit is lacking, then his Chariot will veer out of control.

    Two T-square patterns (red triangles) dominate the chart for the Solar Eclipse:

    One has the conjunction of Sun and Moon in Cancer with Moon’s North Node in the last degree of Gemini, in (180°) opposition to the Moon’s South Node in Sagittarius, with (90°) square aspects from Mars conjunct Neptune in Pisces to both ends of the opposition.

    We have seen above the spiritual qualities, possibilities and choices open to us at this Eclipse. The T-squares reveal the challenges we will each face in how we manage to manifest these choices, or not. The opposition to the South Node in Sagittarius continues the theme of the Lunar Eclipse, emphasising the need to let go of outmoded belief systems that no longer serve anyone. In particular this is about letting go of belief systems, where we blindly and unconditionally follow those who may appear to hold more power than we do. The red (90°) squares to Mars conjunct Neptune in Pisces indicate that, before we act, we need to be consider whether our actions will benefit the whole. This means that we need to act out of conscious awareness and choices and not simply because ”that is the way we have always done things” or “that is what I have always believed”. We need to be questioning everything because very little is what it appears to be, at present.
    As with the recent Lunar Eclipse, the conjunction of retrogrades Pluto, Jupiter, Pallas Athene and Saturn feature prominently at this Solar Eclipse.

    A Sensitivity Triangle has retrogrades Pluto, Jupiter, Pallas Athene and Saturn in (150°) quincunx to the Sun, Moon and North Node and (30°) semi-sextile to the South Node in Sagittarius.

    Pluto, Jupiter, Pallas Athene and Saturn continue the process from the Lunar Eclipse, “unhooking” ourselves from attachments to old power structures and those who represent that in the world. This means unhooking ourselves from all those who wield their power in our name, but do not actually have our best interests at heart. This is not about deciding which side is right and which is wrong, it is not about deciding which “camp” we fall into or want to align ourselves with. All sides are getting many things wrong. When one side or the other apparently does something “right”, it does not necessarily mean that everything they do or say is right. Much of what is going on is random; occasionally those in power will pick up on something that meets with our approval, and we may think that they understand what is going on. Then the very next day, they will do or say the most ridiculous, mindless or stupid thing that completely contradicts their apparent understanding or wisdom of the previous day. Whilst these 4 planets remain retrograde, there will continue to be a load of misdirection, obfuscations, lies and about-turns in policies and decision-making. The Solar Eclipse offers a moment out of time, where we can see through the web of illusion being spun around us, and step through into the paradigm, where we can begin to nurture and grow the new reality into being. We cannot know fully what that new reality will be until we step through into it, so this requires a complete letting go of the past and a high level of trust, as we step through into the unknown.

    The other T-square has Chiron in Aries in opposition to Juno in Libra’, with (90°) square aspects from Vesta in Cancer. Vesta is widely conjunct with retrograde Mercury in Cancer.

    It may seem that the amount of healing of misaligned relationships required in the world, is overwhelming to our hearts. It may feel that we are not up to the new challenges that are being presented to us, almost on a daily basis. This may be causing huge amounts of tension, anxiety and feelings of inadequacy about our ability to effect any meaningful change. But the key to bringing about planetary healing is by us each individually taking small steps to move back into right relationship with self and others. This can only be achieved by listening to and following the promptings of our innermost heart, and by knowing that we are not alone in this. Whilst Mercury is retrograde (until 12th July), our minds will not be of much help in this and will most likely just lead us off into various distractions or blind alleys. We need to stay focused in our hearts.

    Vesta is in a Small Talent Figure, with a (120°) trine to Ceres in Pisces and (60°) sextiles from Uranus in Taurus to Vesta and Ceres.

    If we truly listen to our hearts, and trust that the Spirit of the Universe actually knows what it is doing, even though few humans appear to have even an inkling, then this will allow insight and inspiration to come to us. We also need to go deep within our hearts to listen to the Spirit of Mother Earth and to understand that she too knows exactly what she is doing.

    Emerging Anew – THE WEEK AHEAD (Jun 22-28)
    https://angstoic.com/2020/06/emergin...ead-jun-22-28/

    "This is shaping up to be quite a year. In the wake of the shadow cast on this earth by arguably the most potent North Node eclipse of our times, we are ready to emerge anew.

    Whatever’s going on, we must be ready to wake up to meet the next ‘reality’ matrix. All of us. So, let’s go
    Sunday’s eclipse acts as a massive reset after the January 11 Lunar eclipse in Cancer which, opposite the Sun/Saturn/Pluto in Capricorn, all but turned out the lights on civilization. To say we are heading into vague, unchartered water would be an understatement. We are in the hands of advanced biotechnology and machine-learning algorithms, and those in charge are getting better at reading our thoughts and manipulating our deepest emotions and desires.

    It is becoming more dangerous than ever to just follow our heart. When Facebook, Amazon, Google or the government knows exactly how to pull the strings of our heart and press the buttons of our brain, it will become impossible for the average person to tell the difference between their individual decisions and those of clever marketing agents.

    TRANSIT ANALYSIS:
    Both Mercury and Neptune now join Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto and Pallas in retrograde. That’s a lot of gods and goddesses turning back to where they’ve been recently. Shall we?

    ✦ MONDAY 22:
    Neptune Stations to Retrograde at 20°♓58′: Until Nov 28, Neptune will slowly take us back to March 2, around where this last season of “Reality-Fantasia” all began. Have a look back. What has been lifted in life that has elevated you to the Grand Piscean Cosmic Oneness? What is slowly sinking into the abyss?

    By the time Neptune is ready to move on to new ground again (around the March 2021 Equinox), we will have revisited the ‘dream’ three times over. By that time, an approaching semisquare between Saturn and Neptune (21 Jan 2021) will have forced us to learn how to adjust to some of the “new toys” and all the new rules on how to play. As with many who struggle to accept Saturn’s ‘reality’ principle, this could be a time of disillusionment and depression.

    As in past approaching ♄∠♆ years (…1913, 1948, 1984), this adjustment to an emerging new vision will include our need to reaffirm our religious faith. At this time, it will be the vision of the prevailing tech-gurus that are brewing up a brave new religion, one that has little to do with God and everything to do with startling new technologies. Of course, like all religions, they’ll be singing all the old hymns – promises of happiness, peace, prosperity and eternal life – but these will be promised here on earth rather than in the ‘heaven’ of an afterlife.

    ✦ THURSDAY 25:
    Venus Stations to Direct at 05°♊20′: Venus has spent the past 10 weeks in her retrograde shadow, turning retrograde on May 11. Over this time, our entire value system got a little revamp, and we are now seeing our world subtly transitioning into a world of randomly fluctuating stock prices, an increasingly cashless society and the possibility that much of the superficial or aesthetic quality we place on things we love, ie. arts, fashion, culture, (including past friends and lovers) is losing its lustre and ability to please and appease us.

    Venus will now head to complete its final square to Neptune (Jul 28), leaving us somewhat vague and disillusioned about what it is we like/love/hold of value/wish to buy. We are left wondering what the inspiration is behind where we invest our energies for a bit of gratification and pleasure in our lives and whether it’s all just a distraction.

    ✦ FRIDAY 26:

    Mars Square the Nodes:
    Before he checks out of the reticent, martyr-driven world of Pisces, Mars becomes totally at odds with current social trends. Here, the passive-aggressive “poor me” tendencies come off as inappropriate and defunct in a time when it appears as if nobody really cares.

    In the prevailing social currents, it appears that it is easier to pay lip service to ideas of which one has little or no depth of knowledge, dogmatically believing that their ’cause’ is the right one, and therefore all others must be wrong (Gemini North Node/Sagittarius South). A spate of badly-timed actions, out-of-sync with the events around them, generates an atmosphere of irritation, anger and frustration between even our most beloved people.

    ✦ SUNDAY 28:
    Mars Ingress into Aries: This is it. Mars’ long-anticipated re-entry to his fiery domicile, where the war-god will spend the remainder of this year (exiting Jan 8, 2021). This is a foreboding period filled with brawling, high-octane confrontations as Mars’ primarily raw, spontaneous physical energy is often channelled into brave new ventures, starting things he doesn’t intend to finish and boldly lunging into unexplored frontiers.

    Get set for some heady, courageous, foolhardy (even violent) activity. The retrograde (Sep 10-Nov 13) will see the tempestuously self-centred war-god tussle, often to the death, with the likes of the authoritarian Jupiter/Saturn/Pluto in Capricorn, especially when in alliance with his snubbed sister Eris (Aug-Nov).

    Needless to say, Mars’ transit through Aries will be the most discussed talking point here for us stargazers over these next six months, since obviously, we’re seeing a world on the brink of something explosively brazen, irrepressibly inflammatory, yet still so heavily under the clutches of the old-world patriarchal order of Capricorn.

    FIRST QUARTER MOON at 07°♎05′

    The Sun’s dynamic entry into Cancer in an epic North Node eclipse on the Solstice highlights awareness of our newly-defined domestic position, our frail sense of security and sliding emotional connectedness. The first Quarter to a Libra Moon (opposite Chiron) raises a lot of disarrays, coming chiefly from not doing what we feel is helping to heal rifts and past wounds with those around us.

    The emotional anxieties and the shyness of Cancer are magnified against the Libra Moon, building into a desire to defend or shield feelings of vulnerability or ‘sore points’, both in personal and political engagements.

    These first-quarter conflicts leading up to the Capricorn Full Moon (the second penumbral lunar eclipse in a month) will notably show up through greater stress points between those who stand on extremely opposite sides of sensitive matters. Whilst it offers a massive chance for peacemaking and reconciliation, a dignified Mars will see it as the impetus for contention and further rifts. This next eclipse (July 4-5) could aggravate underlying axioms for civil/domestic unrest…

    Mars Sextile Saturn: This aspect lends a restraining, cautionary influence on Mars’ otherwise gung-ho style. Perhaps enforcement of plans is taken in stride using progressive new measures. Technology and machines, particularly regarding the enforcement of social-distancing and structural reforms, will be hastily introduced to curb and discipline the way we’ve been used to moving about in our usual business activities.SYNOPSIS:
    These are interesting times if maybe a little confusing. At this point, we find ourselves inducted into a fresh new paradigm, one where extended home-confinement and social isolation appear as though they could linger on, not just for months, but possibly for years to come. We discover that we know very little indeed about what is truly going on and suspect that we could be either surrounded by mildly incompetent fools or maniacally good geniuses.

    Pluto’s helmet ensures that everything remains dark and tightly undercover, so it is intensely difficult to determine whether those in power are driving a deeply selfish, malicious agenda or secretly planning some sort of benevolent totalitarian surprise for us. Surely all signs point to the outcome you want to see, right?

    Or do you see something different being planned? Is it possible that nobody has a freaking clue on how to handle this **** from here??

    All one can hope is that this phenomenally brittle state of affairs we’re in somehow magically prevents humanity from the head-on threats of disease, ill-health, unemployment, poverty, domestic violence, terrorism, civil unrest, political and social ostracisation, economic & emotional depression, famine, starvation, etc., (all effects of Eris being snubbed). As Mars enters Aries, the very real threat of the individual human feeling socially irrelevant as machines rapidly replace him is going to be absolute ignition to whatever cause is gonna get us quickly to the next step.

    REVOLUTION ALERT

    The first half of 2020 showed us signs of things to come. If this Saturn/Pluto conjunction coincided with the ’emergence’ of a “scary new virus from over there”, one which has the power to rout us all back to our respective crabholes for some much-needed isolation and self-reflection, then it’s doing its bit nicely. Mother-****er. Good. Great to see both locally and abroad, over land and sea, it has forced all citizens to return to their respective home-base, lock up and listen to the news for more instruction. All-day, stories of people dying, flights all grounded, movement restricted and police at least 50% more aggressive toward those “stretching” out on the street… hmm…

    Saturn’s brief visit in Aquarius (Mar 22-Jul 2) has pressed that societies best establish an immediate social-distancing order, quickly defining it as “the new normal”, shut schools, child-care centres, small business; reduced hospitals and nursing homes to ‘critical only’ and made approximately three-quarters of the world’s work-force (the “non-essentials”) either work from home or become temporarily redundant.

    The rest were ‘allowed’ to operate on the front lines in what became the pandemic’s ‘essential services’. There was an immediate ban on all ‘old-normal’ social activity, confinement of all daily movement to essential only, and relegation of all affairs of the heart to ‘zoom-meetings’ over the crappy 4G electronic networks. The internet became quickly filled with ****.

    In just over three months, Saturn will have lain down the initial blueprint for his ‘new-normal’ infrastructure, ready to roll out properly after he finishes his retrograde in Capricorn and returns to Aquarius in December. By then, he’ll have Jupiter right there to see it gets rolled out ‘nicely’. Planets in Aquarius will generate the architecture for a superbly compartmentalised network of data which interconnects rapidly, forming a super-consciousness of group intelligence. As a social-environment, Aquarius is emotionally dry as a bone, denying much personable contact and human warmth. It does, however, offer amazing connectivity and promise for a more sharing, more egalitarian system for all. Well, that’s assuming you want to be part of their “all”.

    REVOLUTION ALERT

    At this profound moment, it seems that many of us have our heads deeply lost in the mire in sociopolitical confusion. One might very well wonder whether this is all just one of those weird, psychedelic dreams, the kind that takes you ages to recollect your Self and work out what in heavens is going on.

    That’s if you have a “self”.

    Who are you? Are you you, or is ‘you’ just a part of the system that made ‘you’, owns ‘you’, rules ‘you’? Who are you without the system?

    During these very intense times, I cannot help but think back to Aldous Huxley’s ‘Brave New World’ (again). The story was written in 1931, just as communism and fascism had gripped themselves over Russia and Italy, as Hitler and his Nazis were starting to cause trouble in Germany and militaristic Japan was lining up to attack China, and, well… the entire world economy was crippled by the Great Depression.

    Under this backdrop, Huxley paints a fantastic vision of a future society where there are no wars, famines and plagues, where there is uninterrupted peace, health and prosperity. People are bioengineered by science to never to be sick or sad, or to rebel. Everyone is peaceful, happy, prosperous and supremely satisfied, all the time. Yet it feels creepily disconcerting and dystopian, probably because everyone has been hacked by the ‘benevolent’ government to be a loyal, shiny, happy little government agent, each doing their bit.

    Anyway, in Huxley’s world, there’s this one dude who reads poetry and talks about god a lot, who dreams of doing something noble and heroic in life instead. He’s convinced he’s not to go along with all that ‘happiness’ bull**** and escapes to live on a reservation. Something about “defending his right to stay annoyed and unhappy with society”. It turns out that, once society gets wind of it, the dude becomes a fascinating oddity to everyone. People flock to his habitat to watch him, engrossed in studying his unfiltered, antisocial manners. The dude becomes a much-sought-after celebrity until, sick of all the unwanted attention, he ends up hanging himself.

    I can’t remember how the story ends, but hey, I recommend you read that book if you have a bit of reading time up your sleeve.

    I recommend you read any book. Books are awesome.

    There’s some serious eclipse action going down. Blessings, and have an amazing week xx "

    JUPITER AND PLUTO RETROGRADE CONJUNCTION
    6/27/20
    https://www.heavenandearthcommunity....T11%3A15%3A20Z

    "The three planetary ‘heavyweights’ Saturn, Jupiter and Pluto continue their dance of conjunctions through the zodiac sign of Capricorn: Saturn is concerned with stability, structures and our fear of change; Jupiter is concerned with the search for truth, and our hopes and wishes for making a better life; Pluto is concerned with how we find our spiritual will and the ability to express that power in the world; Capricorn is concerned with how the structures of businesses, governments, national and international institutions are used to wield and maintain the power of the status quo.

    Following on from the Lunar and Solar Eclipses of the past weeks, Jupiter and Pluto, both now retrograde, will make their second conjunction this year on June 30th. This will mark a moment of truth.

    A planet appears to go retrograde (move backwards) when, at certain points in Earth’s orbit around the Sun, the Earth ‘overtakes’ the other planet, giving the appearance that it is moving backwards. This means that, psychologically and spiritually, the other planet is retracing its steps, giving us opportunities to review, look deeper and act differently towards any issues that it might be bringing up.

    The two Eclipses in recent weeks were concerned with releasing us from the influence of the power structures of the past Age of Pisces. The Lunar Eclipse was concerned with releasing our positive and negative emotional attachments to those power structures; the Solar Eclipse opened the doorway for us to choose to embrace the power that becomes available to us, when we follow the path of Spirit and move towards the new paradigm that is emerging, for the coming Age of Aquarius.

    As Jupiter and Pluto make their retrograde conjunction along with Pallas Athene and Saturn, both also retrograde, this is the time when we can “unhook” from our attachments to the old power structures of the past. We may be positively attached to those structures, meaning that we believe that they are a force for good, or at least necessary in order to create and maintain stability and security. Or we may be negatively attached, understanding that they are destructive, controlling and manipulating the masses and exploiting the planet, yet feeling powerless to effect change and stuck in hopelessness, anger and resentment. Either way, if we hold strong feelings about these power structures and those that uphold them, use them or abuse them, then we will create an emotional attachment that enables them to persist, no matter how much we may disapprove of them or of how they are being applied. The key thing at this time of retrograde conjunction is to truly acknowledge what we are feeling, and use these emotions to unhook ourselves from the negative attachment in preparation to step from hopelessness into empowerment. The time for action will be when Jupiter and Pluto turn direct. (Jupiter Direct 13.09.2020, Pluto Direct 04.10.2020)

    As the exact conjunction of Jupiter and Pluto occurs, Pallas Athene is less than one degree ahead and Saturn just 6 degrees ahead. Jupiter, Pluto and Pallas are in a stand-alone (60°) sextile aspect with retrograde Neptune in Pisces. In this conjunction, Saturn is the only planet to link to other planets in the chart.

    Retrograde Saturn, already in Aquarius, is a few degrees ahead of the conjunction, clearing the ground for the foundations that will support the energies of Jupiter and Pluto when they arrive into Aquarius (Jupiter on 19th December 2020; Pluto on 23rd March 2023). Pallas Athene is just ahead of Jupiter and Pluto, wielding her sword of truth to cut away the last vestiges of our attachments to the old paradigm. Now more than ever, Pallas Athene is concerned with speaking truth (Jupiter) to Power (Pluto). With Neptune also retrograde in Pisces, the task at hand is to surrender to the changes that are upon us. This involves letting go to allow the old, worn out, one-size-must-fit-all paradigm of the mass movements, beliefs, political philosophies and religions of the old Age of Pisces, to finally expire, and take all those that want to keep perpetuating that old paradigm with them! Retrograde Neptune, standing alone, is clearly showing that we cannot go back to the past, not do we yet have a clear vision of what the future holds.

    This is why it is such a confusing and even frightening time for many. Retrograde Neptune in Pisces is stripping away the past, by revealing our collective illusions, delusions and wishful thinking that is not based in any way on anything that is real. All those who are hankering after some idealised “golden age” that existed somewhere in the past, are suffering from a delusion because what they are hankering after is a parody of what actually was. All those that think they already know what the future holds or claim to have a vision of what the future holds, are equally deluded, as many of those visions have the potential to turn very quickly into nightmares for everybody. Neptune remains retrograde until 29th November, so there are still many illusions and delusions that need to bubble up to the surface before then. In the meantime, Saturn holds an important key to how we can negotiate our way through this time of illusions, chaos and uncertainty.



    Saturn is in a Trapeze pattern with a (90°) square to the Moon, which is (120°) trine to the Moon’s North Node, which is square to Mars, which is (60°) sextile back to Saturn. There are two (150°) quincunxes, one between Saturn and the Node and the other, between Moon and Mars. Saturn is also part of a Learning Figure, with a square to the Moon in Scorpio, which is quincunx to Venus in Gemini, which is trine back to Saturn.

    Until Saturn turns direct on 29th Sept, when it can actually begin the process of restructuring for the Aquarian Age, it is requiring us to unpick any deeply held, fear-based emotional preferences, biases and prejudices. We may have been consciously or unconsciously supporting the old paradigm, with such fear-based attitudes. The Moon in Scorpio can bring us insight into where we may be holding on to such deep, entrenched unconscious attitudes that we may be completely unaware of at the conscious level. We will need to dig deep to uncover these attitudes and shed light on where they originate from. The clues to unravelling these attitudes will lie in those situations where we find ourselves having a strong, or even violent emotional reaction. If we can step back from our emotions to follow the thread of these charged responses, then we may come to understand where we are holding on to some past emotional hurt or pain that has been skewing our perceptions. Venus can help to bring that into our conscious awareness, bringing a more balanced view that will reveal the rewards to be gleaned, once we release the stuck emotional energy that has been locked up in our unconscious.

    Once we can identify the origins of our emotionally charged responses to such situations, then it is essential to start acting (Mars) in ways that stop perpetuating the destructive patterns caused by past emotional hurts that have become locked in at the unconscious level. Mars, in the first degrees of Aries means that we can embark on a whole new way of acting, freed from the mistakes of the past. The key to this lies in the two green (150°) quincunxes, which mean that we can only begin to restructure, once we have confronted and acknowledged the mistakes of our past with some degree of emotional honesty; this can then free us up enough to begin seeing things differently from a new standpoint, not tainted by our personal, or collective past. Trapeze patterns often require radical changes, affecting all areas of our lives simultaneously. We need to be willing to embrace such all-encompassing changes, so that we can actually heal the past and move on, rather than just giving lip-service or putting a sticking plaster on the wounds of the past and then expecting things to change.



    There is a T-square with Sun conjunct retrograde Mercury and Vesta, all in Cancer, which are (90°) square to Chiron in Aries, which is in (180°) opposition to Juno in Libra, which is square back to Sun – Mercury – Vesta.

    The opposition from Chiron to Juno is about healing behaviour patterns from the past, which have resulted in us not having been in right relationships with others, be they individuals, groups, or nations. This is about becoming aware of past behaviour patterns that have not respected the values and rights of others, whether by deliberate commission or neglectful omission. The Sun conjunct retrograde Mercury and Vesta means that, above all now is the time when we need to think with our hearts if we are going to heal ourselves and our relations with others.

    Particularly whilst Mercury is retrograde (until 12th July), if we try to address these issues with the mind alone, then we will fail. We need to learn to think with our heart-mind, and to understand that wherever our mind tells us one thing and our heart another, then we are at war with ourselves, and the outcomes will not be good.


    Uranus is at the apex of a Small Talent triangle, with (60°) sextiles to Ceres in Pisces and Sun - Mercury - Vesta in Cancer, with a (120°) trine between Ceres and Sun – Mercury - Vesta. Uranus is also forming a Sensitivity Triangle with a (150°) quincunx to Juno in Libra, which is in (180°) opposition to Chiron in Aries, which is (30°) semi-sextile back to Uranus. Uranus is also in opposition to the Moon in Scorpio.

    Uranus is playing an important role in the current turmoil, by enabling our spiritual self to simply stand back and witness what is going on around us and observe any responses that are triggered within us. The opposition to the Moon can enable us to stand back and observe our emotional responses, so that we do not become overwhelmed by them. The 150° quincunx to Juno and 30° semi-sextile to Chiron can enable us to dispassionately observe and acknowledge our relationship patterns and attitudes towards others, so that wherever necessary, these may begin to be healed. But healing can only take place when we let go of our attachments; it cannot happen when we are still emotionally engaged, attached or invested in whatever it is that we are trying to heal. Uranus’ connection with Sun – Mercury – Vesta shows what is possible when we learn to think with our heart-mind. The connection with Ceres shows that, when we can see the world from the perspective of our heart-mind, then this will enable us to understand our true relationship with the Earth and how to live in harmony with her, and with all other beings.

    “By emptying the self of everything, the mind can be at peace.

    As the ten thousand things rise and fall, the Self watches their return.

    They grow, flourish and then return to Source.

    Returning to Source is stillness, which is the way of Nature.” "

    Gateway to the Reconstruction
    THE WEEK AHEAD, July 6-12
    https://angstoic.com/2020/07/gateway...ead-july-6-12/



    "We are heading into another very intense week of life-altering activity. As much as we might like to keep a smiley face on our mask, we are best reminded that underneath it all, things aren’t so rosy at all during this intense period of the reconstruction.

    It would appear that, on the whole, human beings are particularly destructive. Sometimes one wonders whether we’re some kind of plague, trying to scour the whole earth clean.

    In fact, we’re so good at destroying things that one would reasonably argue that maybe that’s our function here. Maybe that’s just it… that every few aeons, some species comes along that kills off the rest of the world, clears the decks, and lets evolution progress to the next level.

    Whether we choose to become aware of it or not, the universe has a grand scheme to transform our entire value system. As a species, we will either make the transition to a higher, more accountable arrangement, or we risk being left behind to languish in misery and possible extinction.


    TRANSIT ANALYSIS:
    ✦ MONDAY:

    The week begins with the culminated Moon’s pass before the Capricorn stellium, perhaps an augury that we are about to undergo some of the greatest shifts our society has ever seen. There are many things that don’t make sense at the moment; the evidence is not adding up. However, this absence of proof does not necessarily mean proof of absence.

    ✦ TUESDAY:
    Venus Sesquisquare Jupiter: Superficial displays of martyrdom, politically correct behaviour or postured charitable acts to earn political ‘brownie points’ become almost transparent. Those straightforward in their efforts would be more sincere. One gets the sense that 95% of what people are saying is wrong.

    ✦ WEDNESDAY:
    Mercury Square Mars: Due to his retrograde, Mercury will lock into a sustained square with Mars for most of July (<4°27′), exact twice (8th & 27th). Mercury will also maintain a square to Chiron (<3°54′).


    Mercury in Cancer means communication tends toward the whimsical, highly personal and subjective. Up against Mars, words and ideas can become charged with aggravation. Little things – microaggressions and personal insults can turn incendiary, especially as Mars conjuncts Chiron, where the wounded masculine feels slighted, hurt or somehow offended.

    This is usually a period of tit-for-tat over misunderstandings and misgivings, arguments and disagreements over the banalest of details.

    Venus sesquisquare Jupiter/Pluto: More evidence (or lack thereof) that tributes, charms and hard-to-resist gifts are lavished by those who are in positions of wealth and power. Is there a catch?

    ✦ THURSDAY:

    Venus Sesquisquare Pluto: We see a strong tendency to be deceived and manipulated by glitzy glitter rather than the reality of a situation. Only those who practice meditation, and therefore aren’t prone to distractions and temptation, can see through the charade and propagandist ploys.

    ✦ FRIDAY:

    Venus Sextile Chiron: Here, the feminine, peace-loving element attempts to heal selfishness by seeking to understand its root cause (usually fear). Expect some long, arduous, unanswered text messages by the masculine, who is seriously not wired for anything but self-defence right now.

    ✦ SATURDAY:
    Chiron Stations to Retrograde at 09°♈26’℞: Chiron’s been here before…

    in 1871-72, after the American Civil war and the beginning of the Reconstruction era, president Grant passes the Ku Klux Klan Act allowing him to send in troops to enforce the 14th amendment. It forged a legacy of bitterness and segregation, wounds still present today. Women’s Suffrage is born.
    in 1920-21, after a WWI & Spanish Flu epidemic, USA introduces the 18th amendment (Prohibition), the KKK launches a campaign terrorizing African-Americans and other minorities. Women gained the right to vote.
    in 1970-72, the US and her allies are at the height of the Vietnam War, invading Cambodia as the Nixon administration conspires to prolong a losing war, merely for political reasons. Meanwhile, as hundreds of thousands are demonstrating against the war in Washington DC, 4 protesters are shot dead when the Ohio National Guard opens fire at Kent State University. The voting age is lowered to 18 in the UK & US. Charles Manson and four followers are sentenced to death.
    2020-2022: Chiron in Aries (the wounded activist) now breaches this same degree for the first time in 50 years, becoming stationary throughout the first half of July. With Mars approaching, old sores becoming aggravated and inflamed. Chiron will again pass this degree on Apr & Nov 2021, and Feb 2022.
    ✦ SUNDAY:
    Mercury 05°♋30′ Stations to Direct: You may thank (this) god for ending this retrograde, particularly if the communication airwaves have been stalled with highly subjective, slightly convoluted and touchy matter these last few weeks.

    Sun Trine Neptune: Whilst there’s potential for reconciliation and resolution of common problems, under this watery aspect one has to question the incentive, motivation and manner in which outcomes are being exploited here. You might feel some nice, easy-flowing sentiments this week, but if not properly taken advantage of, one could miss the opportunity. Neptune tends to make our Cancer Sun lazy, hazy and looking for ambivalent ways to avoid social involvement and responsibility.

    LAST QUARTER Moon at 21°♈03′



    So the Cardinal action is heating up nicely for July and beyond. This very dynamic quarter moon serves as a climactic finale to what is only the first of two consecutive Cancer New Moons. The current lunation cycle commenced at the epic Annular Solstice Eclipse (Jun 21) at 00°♋21′, culminating with Sunday’s Capricorn Lunar eclipse – our second in 5 weeks. With a second Cancer lunation at 28°♋27′ (Jul 20) we start to see how cultural and regional differences are vanishing. The big reset is underway.

    To say we are living in ordinary times would be preposterous by anyone’s standards. We are, by now at least, aware that humanity has been languishing in ever-increasing levels of absurdity for quite some time.

    The Capricorn stellium is an indication that human beings are trying their hardest to bring things back into line, oblivious to how much they are likely to have been contributing to the madness by eroding away all semblance of order and normality.

    We seem ambivalently trapped into an old system of patriarchal enslavement. With the impatient Aries Moon squaring off both the harshly judgemental Pallas/Jupiter/Pluto/Saturn stellium retrograding at the end of Capricorn, opposite the Cancer Sun, we will start to see those who have the courage to stand up and blow the whistle on this whole damned business of control and domination.

    Have an amazing week xx

    ********************************

    From Ang's email update:
    "Greetings Fellow Travellers,

    With the stellium in Capricorn tightening, the stage is set for one of the most phenomenal periods of activity in the transmutation of our global paradigms. We are entering a new phase of the industrial revolution. It behoves us to stay mindful that things are changing, and to stand in defiance to change may look like an ant railing, alone, against god.

    Are we in control or is this process bigger than anything anyone has any power to affect? Are human beings sentient and aware? There appears no evidence for it. For the most part it seems that humans are incapable of thinking for themselves. We find it all too uncomfortable. We simply repeat what we are told and become unsettled and disturbed whenever we are exposed to any different view.

    As the Cancer Sun is showing us against the Capricorn stellium, the principal pull of most humans is not towards awareness but rather towards conformity. This is largely due to our sociopolitical and religious adherences. We are willing to go to war just to defend our 'rights'. Whilst other species are merely fighting for territory or food, human beings are unique in that they are prepared to fight, even kill one another for the sake of their 'beliefs.' The next six months, with Mars in Aries, will demonstrate just how fiercely we adhere to this phenomenon.

    Our belief systems guide human behaviour because they appear to give our otherwise chaotic lives meaning. This appears to place some evolutionary purpose to our story, but as we shall see when Mars meets Eris (Aug-Dec), our behaviour may well lead us to extinction.

    There's absolutely no evidence to assume that, as a species, we have any awareness at all. We present largely as a hive of stubborn, self-destructive conformists, milling around a self-centred leader, too spineless to take a stand against our own self-absorbed delusions.

    For those who do, in some sense, consider themselves as 'aware', observe, now that Mercury is stationing, what is happening as the plan to squeeze almost 8 billion people together into cyberspace unfolds. Be aware of what is becoming of our intellectual diversity. Will our intelligence thrive and prosper into proffering each of us with greater creative autonomy, or will it just cripple the mind of an entire species into a highly controlled global uniformity?"

    Nathalie, I found the above to be very accurate. I hope you are feeling well these days. Thank you for posting these astrological reports.

    We are connected to the stars.

    I have found the last six months to be especially challenging. An oyster makes a pearl when it is irritated.

    May we rise above our petty challenges and evolve as the special, individual species we are. Hue-man.

    Love, Val
