    A Rush of Blood to the Head: NEW MOON IN VIRGO – Tuesday, September 7 – 00:53 UTC
    https://angstoic.com/2021/09/a-rush-...er-7-0053-utc/



    "The New Moon, occurring at 14°38′ Virgo, presents us with a compelling opportunity to hone in on a specific area of our lives and deal with it in our own, inimitable way. Same celestial phenomenon – various points of view. Here, at the Moon synodic reset to the Sun, her unconscious, instinctive energies align with his clear, conscious, creating a confluence of mind-body impulses to move, either in a brand new way or merely reinforce an existing way.

    At this moment, something urgent and profound is coming through. Though it may seem shocking and totally unexpected, you may soon come to admit that it was indeed expected, you just refused to prepare, and now it’s here…

    New Moons are a coming together of primal energies. Feel into how certain pressing matters have been conspiring to summon your undivided attention lately. Observe how those matters are calling you to make a firm decision. With the synergy of Mars here, also currently in Virgo, taking action on our decisions may become an irrepressible necessity.

    In this mutable earth sign, Virgo lunations accentuate the primary attributes of practicality, ensuring we keep up to speed with the necessary skills and tools to utilise and manage material concerns and financial resources more efficiently. The annual lunation in this sign embodies our interests in these things, ensuring that shrewd practicality is applied with intelligence and dexterity. We see this in our work, health, functional routine, and how we deal with anxiety, stress and problematic issues.

    Virgo, the virgin/maiden – the sign of the harvest – symbolises the purification process as a preparatory step towards further development. Following on from the bombast, glory and bluster of last month’s fiery Leo lunations, Virgo focuses her efforts on the stripping down and refinement of the ego, rendering a grounding effect to any personal motives still tinged with Leo’s overt behaviour. She tames down any wild, audacious drives into something more functional, useful and ready for service.

    Virgo’s preoccupation with efficiency, duty, economic restraint and her strong ethic towards continuous improvement and physical well-being are highly commendable. Yet, her perfectionism can often degenerate into an attitude of pedantry and, more negatively, an air of conceit and hypercriticism. At this lunation, the concentration of Sun, Moon, and Mars energies will undoubtedly compel us to get the job done or, given the earth trine to the obsessive Pluto, set out a plan to “complete it at any cost”. Pluto’s square to Eris adds a tinge of “get with the program or be left out in the cold” to this – a running theme for 2020-2021. As we are seeing, there are many different ways that one might take this.



    Of course, we must consider each lunation in context to other planetary transits, especially those in aspect to this event. Here we see an almost precise (-0º01′) trine to Uranus. The planet Uranus symbolises an extraneous force that manifests as sudden reversals of life patterns, unexpected shifts in consciousness, flashes of pure insight, and lightning blasts of new ideas and innovative concepts. Uranus acts as a conduit through which profound forces flow into awareness with electric rapidity. Uranus also stimulates a surge of independence, rebellion, erratic and unconventional behaviour, acts of radical insurgency.

    Whist the earth-trine influence of Uranus in Taurus lends this Virgo lunation’s intention for efficiency and utility the latest innovative ideas; it does not make this lunation exceptionally stable. The New Moon acts as a channel via which we can utilise innovative new tools & material resources, endowing us all with an electrified, magnetised charge. There is a spark of hope here, for if all goes well, we are left feeling illuminated.

    Contrary to popular opinion, Uranus doesn’t always act destructively. It does suggest that there may be some upsets and disruptions, though, and only when there is resistance to its influence does it manifest as destructive. Still, anything wiped out suddenly (old ideas, habits, traditions, relationships, possessions etc.) was probably due for renewal anyway. This lunation promises Promethean-scale changes that will sweep through all humankind, shocking revelations that have the potential effect of reorganising (often by first disorganising) our old ways of doing things to usher in a new way.

    In this strange world of pandemics and fears about survival and untimely death, those who have been living in a repressed manner, where vital elements of their inherent freedoms have been denied, neglected, or ignored, the trine from Uranus acts to speed up the moment of release, at least from the not knowing. In the lead up to this New Moon, if you have been experiencing anxious anticipation, nervously agitated, restless, excitable, or driven by an overwhelming urge for change and deliverance from the shackles of the past, then this lunation offers a chance at liberation, awakening and illumination from the linear time sequence. In any sense, it will stir up both your inner and outer experiences with such enervating intensity that things are seldom the same afterwards. And they won’t be, I promise you.



    This lunation quarters up to direct T-square to Neptune a week later, where it seems, with Saturn also in the mix, that some area of current worldly experiences clashes brutally with our most profound spiritual longings. Whist the result can be utter confusion, despair and disappointment, Virgo’s faculty for acute discrimination (Virgo is opposite from woolly, woozy Neptune in Pisces) will help us to clarify for ourselves what is practical, to facilitate both our spiritual and material growth and what is merely a fantasy or delusion. So yeah, time to wake up and face the music, one might say.
    Blessings, and may you have an amazing New Moon xx "

    Survival of the “Fittest” Pluto/Eris
    September 12, 2021
    https://angstoic.com/2021/09/cosmic-...ree+Newsletter


    "Before Saturn and Pluto turn direct in early October, we will see the most immense pressure on what is already a planet ripping down the seams. If you're feeling it, I feel you. Have faith, that...



    9/11, occurring during an exact opposition of SATURN/PLUTO, an event which horrified many of us. As usual, the utter cruelty experienced during hard Saturn/Pluto transits meant that the world became easily manipulated by the powers that be into a state of mass hysteria and fear and terror.

    Under the extreme panic and stress propagated relentlessly in the media, the people were easily misled into accepting 'corrective actions' of the Bush Administration (and its then allies) to wage wars upon Afghanistan, then Iraq, leading to the rise of ISIS, the Syrian civil war, which led to a flood of millions of refugees into Europe, resulting in rising nationalism and far-right extremism, which led to Brexit due to demands to control sovereign borders to stem immigrants flooding in from the middle east, Islamophobia, terrorist attacks, and the weakening of the EU.

    By the end of the Bush-era, it was becoming blatantly evident that world governments had taken their people into wars in the Middle East based on false intelligence and blatant lies (about WMD's and Al Qaeda). The phoney premises cost many lives, and it was obvious that the west was incompetent and incapable of even running a tea party over on foreign lands. They had learned nothing from their failure in Vietnam. And the masses, they forget…

    By 2008, the sudden global financial crisis saw many working-class folks lose their homes. Countries like Greece, Ukraine, Argentina, Jamaica were left in economic ruin, while the ordinary people of Ireland, Russia, Mexico, Hungary, and the Baltic states suffered devastating losses. Of course, the governments bailed out the banks to maintain the illusion that all was OK.

    By 2019, European Union, once a great world power, became increasingly ineffectual in strength. This left the field wide open for China to take on the USA over who has the most economically progressive model for the future. USA drew a lot of power from the oil wells of Saudi, but it was evident to the Chinese that the new 'oil' was in 'data'.

    Then, in 2020, came Covid.

    America, barely hanging in the contest with its powerful military and tech-economy prowess, was about to be tested. In the grips of a pandemic, deepening domestic divisions, brewing since the Obama days, were now erupting into some seriously ugly scenes of civil disorder by the time Trump and his "basket of deplorable" were finished dishing it out to the elites.

    ERIS had unleashed her apple of discord.

    Here, in the aftermath of the pandemic and a disastrous legacy left by wars in the Middle East, the world now looks at America with ridicule and dismay. She will soon be unwelcome to any garden party.

    Meanwhile, China's capacity to lock down hard, then rebound after Covid only demonstrates to envious dictators everywhere that the 'authoritarian capitalism' model is the sexiest on the planet.

    Governing over a highly-controlled citizenry via the iron fist of a deep-surveillance algorithm seems like the one model being embraced and implemented by many aspiring dictators and control freaks everywhere in the western 'nations'. Here in Australia, NZ, Canada and the UK, 'puppet leaders', commandeered by billionaire biotech and infotech corporateers, are drooling with envy at China's Social Credit system of managing the masses. They are banding desperately to eliminate national identities/borders, creating quasi-economic bubbles within which they can filter the good eggs from the bad…

    Since the SATURN/PLUTO conjunction in CAPRICORN (Jan 2020), the west has seen a subtle, yet increasingly comprehensive sweep of new authoritarian structures which are fast replacing the lovely 'liberal freedom' and 'economic autonomy' we enjoyed since the URANUS/NEPTUNE conjunction in CAPRICORN (1993).

    Yet the cards are not all dealt out yet. The legacy of 9/11 is still fresh, and ordinary folks today are all but entirely distrustful of government and corporate elites and their fearmongering campaigns to corral humanity for their own profit. Many do not buy into the blatant insincerity propagated by their media machines, and deep down, nobody really trusts that governments have the peoples' interests about security and safety as a primary concern anymore.

    Very soon, a critical mass who see that this is all about the corporations amassing total power, wealth and control over the minds and resources of their own children is about to snap, and, as the saying goes, my friends, even the worm will turn…."

    “MOUNTAINS OUT OF MOLEHILLS” – FIRST QUARTER MOON at 21°16′ SAGITTARIUS
    September 14, 2021
    https://angstoic.com/2021/09/mountai...pQJz1BLyZzNZv0



    "Outside, in the distant outer regions, a great drama continues to secretly unfold. The PLUTO/ERIS square tries desperately to further separate and divide the powerful from the weak, the rich from the destitute, the rightfully entitled from the underclass, the socially relevant and esteemed from the useless and troublesome. These outer, outer planets work to place the masses under the blinding spell of unyielding obedience and compliance with catchphrases like “evolve or perish”. Under such periods of heavy coercion, extreme ultimatums can be horrifying. But is the fear real, or is it something we can easily dispel?

    Meanwhile, the Sun is closing in on another Equinox…

    The Sun’s reign through Virgo starts to subside as he enters the last decanate through this practical, adaptable sign. His transit here shows us how to be more efficient with our service, both to others and the great divine and to use our skills to help others gain greater self-sufficiency. The earth trine from Uranus during last week’s New Moon has certainly shifted our approach to how we like to do things, radicalizing attitudes and expressions, often with some very queer, unusual revelations.

    A week later, the Moon is now about to form her first quarter from the sign of Sagittarius. This lunar phase presents a crisis point since Sagittarius tends to be broad and sloppy, and the Moon here presents significant issues for the generally exacting and fastidious Virgo Sun. Some degree of tension is evident, particularly in our personal lives. Problems may arise due to unconscious tendencies to fudge over or neglect the more practical matters of our lives. Virgo’s concern with the excruciating minutiae of everyday life will feel very constricting to the free-ranging, devil-may-care side of Sagittarius, who can hardly be bothered with details and chores. There’s a likelihood to make ‘mountains out of molehills’, exaggerating our own or others’ flaws and perhaps become overly liberal with criticisms.



    At times like these, the need to be critical or skeptical of others’ beliefs is of utmost necessity, especially when others show arrogance or dogma towards our own values and truth. With Neptune opposing the Sun, these issues can become highly distorted, convoluted or simply too confounding to address clearly and critically. It can be challenging to analyze and evaluate options and choices correctly, primarily if, in relationships, we focus on self-created and imaginary issues rather than actual problems. Terrible misunderstandings and feelings of being undermined by those we need to trust on health, work, service (Virgo stuff) can lead us to adopt a sacrificial martyr attitude. Hence, confrontations that go awry will impact our soul experience with such deep discontentment and psychic torment that, with the harshness of Saturn also involved, may lead to despair.



    This temporary state of chaos is not as bad as it may sound, for when we go through such periods of sadness and despair, it raises red flags that something is not well in our current lives and hence must change. Lies and deception will not stand, for they provide poor foundations for any trust. We must couple the discerning power of the Virgo Sun with the empathetic nature of Neptune to see where we have been prone to excessive fantasies and wishful thinking, accept being wrong and take responsibility, rather than attempt to lay blame on the shoulders of others.

    If a change must occur in our relationships, we must try to weed out the issue—escapism or defensive mechanisms do not provide acceptable forms of protection. With Venus squaring Saturn, bleak situations may have to come to an arrangement that is at least workable, but it is a sign that things may need to end.

    In the lead up to next week’s Pisces Full Moon, this is an excellent time to assess and appraise messy situations, both internally and with the exterior world that we create through our relationships with people, places and things. Time to sort things out. This is a time to set out a practical plan and follow through with some degree of execution. Nothing is more satisfying than achieving a set result. Despite all the chaos and confusion, practicing our routine regularly, we slowly and methodically accomplish the outcome we wish to achieve."

    Pisces Full Moon at 28°14' --Libra Equinox 9/22/2021
    https://app.getresponse.com/view.htm...hv4&z=Eh4TVKc&



    "Greetings Fellow Travellers,
    As we approach the Libra Equinox (Wed, Sep 22), we see the Sun reach his cardinal culmination point, where life turns its focus from the subjective to the objective field of interests. EQUINOXES are significant moments, marking critical shifts in our awareness. Coinciding with a Full Moon, the spell of this awakening moment is magnified intensely.

    After six months of personal development, we are now about to move into assessing ourselves in the context of our relationships with others. What comes into greater circumspection is the awareness of our intersubjective importance through the mirror of 'others' in our world. As such, our perceptions of the outside world become gradually amplified; things that are not us but of which we are a part come to light with an increasingly expanding range.

    Over the next six months, our encounters become more widely social. Hence, everything we are becoming is eventually held to reference and defined by the 'other', whether singular or collective.

    The Full Moon, occurring in the final stages of the Virgo/Pisces dichotomy, is also a culmination. Hence, we are pitted to take an extraordinarily objective, conscious approach to life and our apparent reality keynotes this. The initial impulse of things 'sensed' (internally) and experienced (externally) now reaches its zenith, providing us with an opportunity to engage with matters that have been developing with some degree of give-and-take until a settlement has been reached. Confrontation and conflict are likely where the scales of balance are tipped in favour of one side versus the other.

    Issues that are not sitting well, both personally and in our outer, interpersonal universe, start to really matter. We are called to manage on finding some method of mediation to restore any imbalances. We become more involved with politics, career direction and social status, and hence, seek to find our own relative importance in this strange version of society; trying to determine our role in the scheme of life's great cosmic opera.

    We are living in times where great changes are occurring. Much is happening that we simply do not understand. Outer planetary cycles, from Jupiter and Saturn, to Uranus and Neptune and as far out as Pluto and Eris are simultaneously at critical stages of their development. These concurrent crises present tremendous hurdles and jolt to our pre-existing understanding of our own intersubjective part in this cosmic dance.

    One and all, the orthodox structures are starting to crumble into ruins due to humanity's inability to maintain the old illusion of order and 'normality' any longer. We see everywhere that past systems (laws, policies, religions, constitutions, etc) are filled with loopholes, inconsistencies and errors which, in a capitalistic framework, have been hijacked and manipulated by the cleverest and most fierce. Rampant profiteering has given rise to an utter disregard for basic decency and inalienable human rights and freedoms.

    As these abuses and corruptions come to light, we must all prepare ourselves for an avalanche of revelations and disclosures that, over the next six months, will shift our prior conceptions about this world to a whole new level.

    Over the next few weeks, harsh transits augur a period of unprecedented unease and unrest. This irritability and tension you are feeling within, now growing among one and all, is what is absolutely necessary to shift our awareness. Humanity appears stuck in a place of scarcity, materialistic greed and blind disdain for the value of one another. It will take enormous work, a miracle of sorts, to see our species move into a more unified position of responsibility, where we can see our actions (conscious or unwitting) as patently uncooperative and destructive. In many respects, we are surely setting ourselves up for a spectacular series of crises that will not cease until the next Equinox, in March 2022.

    As we look around, we observe that people are behaving in the most unusual ways. We are so divided that we cannot seem to find a common thread by which to form sustainable bonds and alliances that serve us amicably without creating some collateral loss, damage or neglect. Saturn's progress through Aquarius has fragmented our interconnectivity and dissociated us from existing networks. We stand divided and seemingly incapable of reconstituting ourselves towards a common vision that benefits the entire group equally and fairly.

    This key matter becomes the single most pressing observation into the next few weeks, as Mercury now in his retrograde shadow in Libra, is about to hold a sustained T-square to the Pluto/Eris square. Global corruptions come to light that cannot be denied or defended and by Oct 9, when the Sun & Mars form a conjunction to an Rx Mercury, we see 'sides' forming to take action.

    At the Pisces Full Moon, we reach full awareness of where we have become disillusioned and either retreated into our fantasy or drifted aimlessly, paralyzed by the confusion we created.



    If we look at recent events in our lives, we can see a theme. Instances are arising where we must make a decision about specific matters. If we have become stuck, attempting to resolve one particular issue but have lost all perspective of the greater purpose, then we must find a way to experience the whole situation and its resolution without meandering from one irrelevancy to another.

    Focusing upon the peripheral or insignificant matters rather than issues of principal concern has gradually moved us away from our spirit centre, made us emotionally vulnerable, insecure and incapable of coping with our real daily responsibilities. This is why Full Moons are critical.

    If you find that your life has turned inward, given to self-pity and negative thinking; if you're sensing your emotional sensitivity now eating away at your physical health and mental well-being; if you are experiencing psychosomatic disorders or are mired by some kind of spiritual paralysis; becoming addicted to drugs, tobacco, alcohol, porn, Netflix or some other escapist trick; looking to medications and other paraphernalia to 'heal' what is essentially a spiritual disease, then it's time to come to terms with those debilitating habits.

    Similarly, if in your relationships you see yourself attempting to compensate for a shaky self-image by meekly submitting to the demands of others; allowing yourself to be exploited and victimized; exercising little discrimination in how to live your life, thus becoming increasingly disillusioned and bitter, critical of those you thought you trusted, then it's time to quit drowning in a sea of pitiful feelings and work to restore some order and clarity to that confusion and feelings of being cheated, mistreated and undermined.

    It all starts with you drawing the line. Instead of blindly trusting others or the exterior universe to just 'fix itself', we each must assess each issue of concern realistically, choosing relationships and activities that are uplifting and enabling us to reach towards the Pisces heights of inspiration and transcendence. This is the highest possible vibration from Neptune, ruler of this nebulous, quantum field of infinite possibilities.

    Opposite, the Virgo Sun helps us to determine which specific current of waves will carry us to which shore so that we surrender only to the flow that streams in accordance with our unique inner vision. We must learn to surf that wave in a way that has practical application and which enables us to manifest our highest ideals.

    Hence, this Full Moon grounds us by showing us how to translate our compassion and spirituality into service. Unless we apply ourselves with diligence and dedication to even the most menial tasks - duties that benefit both ourselves and others, we are not working to serve the divine order. We must stop squandering energy into selfish pursuits. The universe is here to push us along now. There is nothing useless under the Sun. It either helps actively or prepares to soon feed the worms.

    Here, in a matter of just a few days, "the worm will turn".

    The Moon seeks to reconcile our dreamy, idealistic Pisces side to make a useful contribution to humanity, while the Virgo Sun directs us toward disciplining our imagination, channelling inspiration into creative work, perfecting ourselves so that we are more capable of living more practically by our ideals. This lunation ensures that we choose the right people to serve, that our assistance is warranted, not wasted and does not weaken or undermine our cause but reinforces and empowers both parties, opening our hearts even more fully to explore the divine energies within and in the cosmic field.

    Many Blessings, and have an amazing Full Moon and Equinox xx"

    FULL MOON at 27°26′ ARIES
    Wednesday Oct 20, 14:58 UTC
    https://angstoic.com/2021/10/end-thi...t-20-1458-utc/

    (Full Moon in Aries can mean a sleepless night or two, even for insomniacs)




    "It’s Full Moon time again where, at the height of the lunation cycle, emotions run high, causing all kinds of conflict. Full Moons are times of culmination. Blessed by the complete light of both Sun and Moon, these illuminated days and nights in our lunar calendar are times when we will make all important decisions. Since the luminary energies are diametrically opposite, we may choose to capitulate, dissent, or even bring an end to matters, especially if they have been particularly troubling.

    When the Moon is in Aries, emotions are raw, instincts are primitive and direct, moods fiery and impulsive and forceful enough to influence our conscious will. An irrepressible hastiness or rashness permeates the collective atmosphere, and ordinary, everyday folks are prone to react without thinking. This stands in contrast to the Sun in airy Libra, who tends to overthink and never decide on any one direct action.

    One might expect that a Mars-ruled Aries Moon would lead to arguments, protestations and wars, especially in conjunction to Eris, the snubbed sister of Mars who led the world into strife and discord. Yet Mars is in his sign of detriment in Libra, effectively dampened in his strike, so there is a pervading hesitancy about taking any action at all. This wait-and-see reluctance is only augmented by the Libra Sun, who in his fall, is at his most indecisive, ceding his sovereign authority by obliging or pandering to the will of others.

    Most critical here, with Pluto T-squaring this lunation from the austerely judgemental Capricorn. Pluto, ruler of the underworld, seems to be holding this entire lunation under full control using his dark, subversive means. Hence any conflict we are facing under this lunation is more likely to be raging deep inside, psychologically suppressed from coming to the surface in any healthy way, which is a concern, since past traumas, abuses and destructive patterns of behaviour are likely to be triggered. For healing to occur, there must be some acknowledgement that there is a problem, and Pluto here holds everyone under his hypnotic spell of secrecy and powerful manipulation.

    Deep down in the psyche, raging battles become so fierce and intense that they either crush our desires and passions or operate at the crudest levels, ready to erupt like a vol­cano, exploding into cruel and destructive be­haviours.

    By the time the Aries Moon reaches the full height of culmination, these raw, reactive emotions are shoved down, banished into the pits of our unconscious. Terrified of expressing our natural, most atavistic instincts lest others judge us for not being ‘civilised’ or ‘spiritually aware’ or ‘mature’ enough, we feel trapped by a sense of guilt and shame. Social pressure is coming from everywhere, especially the Jupiter and Saturn in the group-minded Aquarius, Pluto in Capricorn’s subversive patriarchal power, partners and consults in Libra. Our own conscience tells us we can no longer stomach the hypocrisy of our being. Something is not sitting well and we become ready to explode at the slightest provocation or grievance.



    As we can see, Pluto in Capricorn holds this whole lunation to ransom. The Libra/Aries polarity is about maintaining our ability to per­ceive and evaluate alternatives before acting, determining which of many possibilities is most viable, working in moderation, not in haste, considering how other people are involved and demonstrating fair­ness and a willingness to cooperate with them. Pluto squaring both Sun/Mars in Libra and the Moon/Eris in Aries is determined to accomplish his own patriarchal, state or corporate agenda.

    For many years now he has been working to restructure the basic structure of society, a program now creating enormous inner turmoil for both luminaries (Sun and Moon) and their war-like siblings (Mars and Eris). As light is being shed, we both see and sense a ruthless design to satisfy Pluto’s hidden urge to survive and dominate at any cost. For the sake of social status, corporate or political power, for wealth and profit, career advancement, job prestige and execution or just plain utter greed, we be­come enslaved by un underlying sexual and material obsession that threatens to override any hope for harmony and peace.

    The Libran awareness, which teaches us that we can compromise or cooperate yet still re­tain our Aries independence; that we can still engage in social activities yet still satisfy our most urgent desires, seems hijacked here. Those possessed by Pluto’s spell seem hell-bent to wreak vengeance upon those they feel may harm them—dominating and exploiting anyone who dares and cannot stand up to their power. The dark triad, now pervading the collective like some parasitic mind-virus, has hypnotised our keen perceptiveness of others to manipulate them into satisfying our most base and insidious needs for domination and supreme power.

    The laws we uphold and commitments we make to each other to liberate the flow of energy, allowing a bilateral opportunity for increased motivation and freedom of action, are being overcome and held to ransom by Pluto’s dark forces. When every experience must be intense and transforming, every action motivated by a do-or-die attitude to life, we become extremists in the truest sense. We can neither accept others nor ourselves because we view the world through black and white lenses. When judgment becomes harsh and intolerant, we are at peril of breaking into psychosis.

    How do we form bonds according to our deepest inclinations, where we seem more decidedly self-directed – not scattered or divided from others, but instead united by the greater Self at the centre of our being? How do we harness and channel those powerful Plutonian energies, sit at peace with the darkness that lurks at our core without allowing it to subdue or disfigure our primordial integrity?

    This lunation has the potential to teach us all to live by higher laws and to form loving, enduring relationships. When we allow the demons that rage within to take over, we feel powerless in controlling ourselves. We see ourselves acting compulsively to control, exploit or shut out those who do not conform to our wishes or our percep­tions of reality. Our attempt to wield power over others must be contained, forced or compelled to undergo drastic changes. Crises happen upon us when we do not rise to the challenge ourselves.


    Discovering, accessing and accepting those primal forces enables us to draw from an inexhaustible reserve of energy and personal power to cope with major crises. We can start with regenerating our depleted and discouraged selves and begin to get involved with total commitment in an activity, cause or relationship that warrants and commands our total energetic investment.

    AT THIS POWERFUL MOMENT,
    FEEL THE PULL TO END AN OLD, ARCHAIC CONSTRUCT.
    IT IS TIME TO RELEASE FROM THE HYPNOTIC SPELL OF DARK, CORROSIVE PATRILINEAL PATTERNS,
    CONTRACTS OF DOMINATION AND GOVERNANCE OVER OTHERS THAT NO LONGER SERVE

    CAN YOU SEE IT?
    SOMETHING WONDERFUL IS WAITING FOR YOU
    IF YOU CAN LIBERATE YOURSELF FROM THE DYNAMICS OF CONTROL
    AND STEP INTO LIVING DEEPLY AND INTENSELY,
    ABLE TO RELAX AND ENJOY SIMPLE, QUIET PLEASURES.

    You will soon die and be reborn. While this experience will tear you apart, it will also strengthen you, fusing you in­to a whole new being, empowering you, again and again, to be revitalised by the healing energies within you.

    Blessings, and may you have an amazing Full Moon xx "
    Each breath a gift...
