    "Justifying Our Conviction" - The Astrology of the Full Moon at 27°29' Gemini
    04:36 UTC Sunday, Dec 19
    https://app.getresponse.com/view.htm...hv4&z=EMkxMH2&

    "Greetings Fellow Travellers,

    We are living in times of startling revelation. We are now, under the current lunation, afforded an opportunity to see our inner world reflected through the eyes and ears of others. Here, the Gemini Full Moon generates some degree of self-effacement, perhaps conflict against the Sagittarian Sun as the two luminaries try to show us how to blend our need to satisfy the values of intellectual curiosity with the desire to form a cogent sense of morality.

    Under any Full Moon, our relationships are often conflicted, highlighting problems that generally manifest into crises. In this event, issues emerge due to the scattering of our mental energies. We may be engaging in too many ac­tivities, inundated with too many disparate ideas that cannot be synthesised or trying to relate to too many people. When we attempt to do too much, restlessly darting from one interest to another, we are often given into perfunctory action or become superficially occupied.

    It is a time to examine where we have become too carried away with theories or meaningless bits of data, at­tempting to gain some meaning over our current reality using logic. When we try to substitute opinions for real-life experience or hypothesise endlessly about everyday problems without actu­ally getting out and living our lives, we are eventually faced with the stark realities.



    This lunation forms a loose t-square to Neptune, warning of the dangers of getting too lost in dream worlds of our own creation. This sets us up for disappointment if we have become carried away with illusions and unrealistic expectations or have tried to escape from dealing with reality. This distortion of truths and facts may be understandable, given the constrictive limitations enforced upon us by government mandates due to the world pandemic. A quincunx to Pluto in Capricorn reveals significant stress points that have affected our mental and spiritual well-being due to extremely coercive manipulation, particularly by corporations and patriarchal figures. Under the mass dissemination of digital data, it is no wonder that so many appear to have become hypnotised by wild conspiracy theories, misinformation and conjecture.

    Under the same polarity of signs as the transiting Nodal Axis of the Moon, this Gem/Sadge lunation highlights severe crises resulting from having invested too much energy in seeking contentment by fantasi­sing about what might be rather than attempting to look into what (actually) is. This lunation's affliction to Neptune indicates how our mental disorientation has possibly influenced our physical health, too, resulting in oversensitivity to foods and medicines and psychosomatic illnesses whose cause can neither be diagnosed nor treated using conventional means.

    Those who manipulate words, incessantly spruiking narratives, play mind games with people or bombard them with a mass of irrelevant or disconnected information are both victims and perpetrators of this Full Moon crisis. The 27º Sagittarius Sun is in direct alignment to our galactic centre, the celestial source of energetic particles (cosmic information) that shower the Earth. Whilst our Sun acts as a divine transmitter of light and sound, these transmissions are no less filtered and refracted by challenging aspects from Neptune and Pluto.

    To purport to be 'right' or have all the answers but answer nothing to no one generates a great air of chaos and distrust. Holding back or misstating information impedes the pure light transmission. More significantly, it harms the spirit of discovery into new perspectives and insights, undermining both the credibility of the word (logos) and sanity of the mind (logic). Those who refuse to employ powers of reason­ing, or back up their claims using a sound repertoire of facts to support their bias­es, or who try to convince others that they possess know­ledge or understanding that they do not, are only committing a travesty of truth and justice.

    As we might see in the many personal and public exhibits in recent or current events in our world, two circumstances lead to arrogance: one is when people are wrong and cannot admit it; the other when people are right, and nobody can stand it.

    Crises under this Full Moon provoke an intuitive warning to all involved of the dire need to focus on our immediate environment. The Gemini Moon seeks to guide us to how we can genuinely apply Sagittarian wis­dom to our regular daily activity. If we must think in global, big-picture concepts, we must find balance by acting locally, applying wisdom into our everyday lives.

    It is time to cease losing ourselves down rabbit holes, false narratives, and higher realms that bear no connection or relevance to our everyday circumstances. By exposing our attitudes and beliefs to the rigorous Geminian tests of reality-facing and logical thinking, we can develop a conceptual system or philosophy of life that is meaningful in all respects and helps us progress along our chosen path. We will also hope to get along better with one another, a situation now made at its worst with an opinionated Sagittarian Mars hovering angrily over the Moon's South Node."

    "Come Hell or High Water" The Cancer Full Moon at 27°51'
    Mon Jan 17, 23:50 UTC
    https://app.getresponse.com/view.htm...hv4&z=EFNB9Jr&



    "Greetings Fellow Travellers,

    As if the stars of Capricorn did not lend enough ambition and determination to our transiting Sun, an application of Pluto energy only intensifies the solar willpower par extreme. Those at the late degrees of cardinal signs activated by this conjunction can utilise this transit, maximising your chances to accomplish anything you put your mind to.

    Or at least that is the apparent manifestation. The Sun energy personifies stellar influences, giving them form and character and a certain degree of authority. Pluto applies considerable attitudes of extremism to our leading characters, and we observe how beliefs, ideas, and opinions are often expressed with excessive force and intensity.

    An earthy/cardinal sign, Capricorn tinges efforts in a dry, earnest manner, imposing strict measures and rules. Ruled by Saturn, the constraints are tight and desired results are absolute and irrefutable. Intensified by Pluto, there is often little room to wiggle; events are polarised in terms of 'black and white', with little mirth or tolerance for the 'greys' to be entertained or accepted as any viable alternative. The Plutonian narrative here is, "If success must come at any cost, let's not bother too much about who or what suffers to achieve our objective".

    Over the past few years, we have spoken extensively about the rise of the unchallengeable authoritarian powermonger as punctuated by recent critical lunations and eclipses in 2019, 2020 and 2021. It looks as if the stars augur a more radical approach to handling direly emerging practical matters. It would also appear that leeway, discourse, and democratic debate aren't necessarily suitable or even welcome in the quest to achieve a massively wide-arching global objective (whatever that is).



    Sun/Pluto in Capricorn seems content to disregard style, manner of procedure, laws, ethics, humanitarian rights, ecological and biogenetical concerns, trepidations about honour and decency in how the world and history books may judge him, at least for the moment. When the Sun merges with Pluto, our lead character is interested only in attaining a distinct objective, often known only to him, and he pursues it as if it is a matter of life and death.

    Naturally, the usual Capricornian concerns of social status, prestige, money, public duty and patriarchal legacy have exponentially strengthened since Pluto entered Capricorn in 2008. Pluto lends tremendous urgency to the sign it is transiting as if it is fighting desperately to preserve its values. Consequently, during his 16 yr run, he goes too hard, creating all kinds of disproportionate and ultimately annihilating behaviour, especially in our interpersonal interactions.

    Due to past traumas, Pluto isn't looking to form a relationship; he's looking to take hostages. His whole "till death do us part" clause is his binding mechanism to protect against deeply-buried abandonment issues, deeply buried under a web of secrets, lies and denials because Pluto has trouble opening up. God forbid you should get close. The explosion of secreted rage and resentment can be punishing. We will shut up and play along with the mystery, untruth, cover-up or charade to avoid triggering any outbursts if we know what's good for us.

    At some point, it becomes evident that the harshly ruthless, seemingly psychopathic conduct has become untenable. As much as Capricorn strives to attain the highest standards and measures of control, it loses perspective and balance under prologued extreme applications. Emotional understanding seems to be a weak spot, and under this Cancer Full Moon, the powerful lunar energy reflects the inherent problems of the Plutonified Sun.

    Full Moons are a time of contrast when primal energies pull away from one another, and our conscious attention seeks to receive support and encouragement from those around us. Such moments are often fraught with conflict and crises, however small, providing complete perspective into distinct themes in our lives. The Cancer Moon reacts inwardly; emotionally, bearing a kind of fierce pleasure in brooding, pondering the 'toughness' of the harsh, dry Capricornian Sun, made ruthless and unfeeling by the interminably crazed agenda of Pluto. Family and security mean much - but she appears to endanger her chances of success because her reaction to Sun/Pluto energy is similarly extreme.

    This Moon highlights how hard it is to relax under such tense and pressured circumstances. Relationships become highly uneasy, not helped by ongoing resentment and suspicion. Under such a lunation, we do not allow others access into the inner sanctum of our world. Distancing is expected since we dislike intrusion of any kind, taking offence whenever anyone is patronising or attempts to dictate to us. If anyone is going to dominate, we must set the terms, and we will not accept anyone trying to bully us on personal matters.

    This lunation becomes a high-water mark in the ongoing saga for authoritarian control. Instinctively, individuals will seek to take control of their private lives and resume control over their own family and domestic matters, refusing to acknowledge others in positions of authority. As with every Full Moon, those with whom we conflict will either concede that things are not working as harmoniously as they should and agree to forfeit, end, or capitulate the agreement or come to the table with some 'solution'. This is especially so if instances of Capricorn's tendency for hypocrisy are coming to light.

    Against the Sun/Pluto, the Cancer Moon shows little or no respect unless certain transformations have occurred to break down an almost narcissistic self-preoccupation, particularly when grandstanding social, political and corporate objectives and agendas. On a more personal level, we may each need to adjust certain attitudes."

    LAST QUARTER MOON at 05°33′ SCORPIO – A MOST FIXED T-SQUARE
    January 26, 2022
    https://angstoic.com/?fbclid=IwAR0fh...u5N0OEgpKTREPA



    "Spotlight on those who are most obstinate, gripped with righteous resolve and stubbornness, helplessly bonded to their better instincts, who rarely listen to the counsel of others and the excessive demands made upon their prerogative.

    We may only wish to one day understand why they make what appears to be utterly ruinous life decisions; why they end their marriages, quit their jobs, uproot and relocate their entire lives, hold interminable grudges or wage bitter wars…

    It is not merely because they dread what awaits them down the line should they agree like the others to be and do as is expected, but because, for better or worse, when they feel bullied by superior forces that they deem corrupt, it is in their inherent nature not to yield.

    Here, with MARS exalted now in Capricorn too, there is an enormous drive to overcome obstacles and achieve tremendous feats; yet their impetus is loaded with anger, either as a means to resist running away or bowing to state or corporate directives that are patently unjust.

    We may not understand but here, under this intensely fixed melee, let’s not be too quick to judge those who are able to dispassionately perceive if their stubbornness will merely accomplish personal gain or serve some ‘greater good’. In any sense, some individuals seem ruthlessly obedient to their idea of fair play and the preservation of their own nature."

    LOOKING FORWARDS – Astrology of Now
    January 23, 2022
    https://angstoic.com/2022/01/looking...w-jan-22-2022/



    "Let me just weigh in here with an astro update, since the Aquarian Sun, now besieged (along with a RxMercury) between malefics PLUTO and SATURN doesn’t hold much “hope” for those individuals who hope to stand away from the pack and make it alone, or be part of a resistant ‘minority’ right now. Aquarius is wide-thinking, technologically way more advanced, always about moving the greater team effort forward. Individuals who do best during this time are those who consider how they can benefit the whole crew.



    One principle that comes to mind here is that of “utilitarianism”, which asserts that so long as our efforts contribute towards producing a beneficial result for the majority, then they are not only deemed socially and ethically acceptable but justifiable, regardless of the consequences. Grimly, this also means that any act, however cold or gruesome towards those deemed to stand against the majority, is considered defensible if it is for the greater good of ‘the collective’.

    You can quickly see how this can be at least a little irksome, if not dauntingly discomfiting for the staunch individualists out there, especially under URANUS in Taurus, who seems determined to disrupt the consensus by maintaining economic, materialistic and physical autonomy against the marching trend towards an organised collective order.

    Perhaps it’s best to keep in mind another Aquarian group ideal, that of “communitarianism”, where individual living and individual contributions to small, self-governing communities or extensive family complexes are important. This group ideal allows us to be the best we can be without shutting others out, with emphasis on encouraging the best in everyone, valuing inclusivity and the nuances of individual diversity.

    There’s a few other collective ideologies (like Marxist–Leninism, Communist dictatorship, National Socialism, Anarcho-collectivism, Corporatism) which I’d rather not entertain here, since they have not exactly worked out too well (across the board) for individual enterprise or endeavours of the human spirit [see 20th century].

    Let’s understand, with Pluto soon entering Aquarius, the gilded days of the celebrated selfish individualist are nearly over. Let’s hold hope that as long as we each continue to do our part willingly and happily, contributing to the common good of our community as dependable and responsible individuals, we shall each find a fruitful way of coexisting again. Going into the Aquarian New Moon, it is a time to plan into this new vision, and know too that this uncomfortable period of social fragmentation will soon, one way or another, eventually be over…"

    "SATURN & URANUS dominate next Tuesday's lunation, not merely by their co-governance of Aquarius or the New Moon's midpoint activation of their separating square, but Saturn, who is all over this, currently holds governance over MERCURY, MARS, VENUS & PLUTO in Capricorn.
    As we discussed in last week's instalment, with the NODES now in TAUR/SCORP, Pandora's box has been cracked open, unleashing some of the weirdest **** we've had to deal with yet. The Aquarian new moon on Saturn strikes us all hard, like a cold arctic blast of consequence which, versus Uranus, alerts us to the seriousness of our 'human condition' like an icepick to the third eye.
    It has the quality of making those closest to us feel lonely and distant somehow; an implied cold withholding at the core of our being. It's priming us for something, so get set for reality, kids. And hey... when all’s said and done, Prince Charming will be there to throw you an ultimatum."

    “ICEBREAKER” – The New Moon at 12°20′ Aquarius, Tuesday, Feb 01, 05:47 UTC
    https://angstoic.com/2022/02/icebrea...b-01-0547-utc/



    "It is New Moon time. The confluence of Solar/Lunar energies conveys to us all a particularly focused essence of being, an experience typical of the constellation under which this monthly reset occurs.

    At this time of year, the current Solar cycle is nearly complete. The Aquarian lunation heralds the penultimate phase of the Sun’s journey through the zodiac. Here, the icy breezes of this fixed air sign cut through our Sol like a cold wintry blast. Where the glacier meets the Aquarian sky, the land ceases to be earthly, becoming one with the heavens. Emotions chill and life, all the way down to the bacterium, becomes dormant. Here, no sorrow can reside; hence no joy is necessary. Hope alone presides, beyond all demands.

    Thus we all ‘hope’ that by the March Equinox the worst of the winter will be over, that the snow would melt, and rivers will start to run, and the world would wake into itself again. It is the time of year when we look forward to things finally thawing down so we can project our visions and dreams into a warmer, more convivial tomorrow.

    Not this year…

    With Saturn still in Aquarius, we could well reason that the stiff arctic chills we’ve been experiencing for the past year or so will just hang in there, like an invalid refusing to die. The crotchety old inquisitor hovers over this lunation like a cryogenic spell, imposing his crippling vice grip over everything, ensuring the ice stays hard and the world remains unfriendly and cold.

    And yet we hope…

    All the positive sides of Aquarius: the inquisitive, truth-seeking intellectual; the radically innovative, edgy scientific genius; the sociable, people-oriented humanitarian; the kind and open-minded idealist who is tolerant, equitable and fair to one and all; the future-thinking progressive who is concerned with reforms and pledged politically to front a noble cause; etc., are somewhat dampened, limited, frustrated even totally denied by Saturn’s presidency over this lunation.



    And it does not help one bit that Aquarius’ modern ruler, Uranus, is square to the traditional ruler, Saturn. So instead, we get a sense of the more negative traits of Aquarius: the nerdishly rational egghead who seems socially distant and impersonal, awkward and aloof; cognitively detached and dissonant to the point of being disengaged; extremely steeped in sci-fi utopian/dystopian sociopolitical views; pseudo-liberal and woke-minded, intolerant of intolerance; stubbornly contrary and dismissive, recalcitrant and censoriously cancelling of everything and everyone that refuses to grasp their wildly erratic, eccentric and shockingly ‘progressive’ concepts.

    For instance, the rise of ‘Wokeism’, whatever its core principles, is now hedging to become the West’s next pseudo-religious ethos. Will it succeed? It seems unlikely, given its core principles tend to fundamentally divide people rather than bind them together to a collective purpose.

    Hence, rather than rallying together for common humanitarian ideals that will lead us all to become more active in our communities and preferred causes, we may contract the cold chills of separatism; a frustrated, peevish futility and despair about tomorrow. Rather than expecting the end of this winter, this lunation could seem more like the heralding of a ‘mini-ice-age’ (metaphorically speaking, of course… although the language of astrology is often more literal than we wish, at times eerily predictive).

    Now, Saturn is long considered to have a maleficent impact on our lives. His grip over this lunation does reinforce that, sometimes, life’s lessons can seem impersonally heartless and unfriendly. In conjunction with the Moon and Sun, Saturn in a fixed sign is not much fun. However you take them, strict measures, rules and stringent limitations are necessary evils to keep the game of physical, 3D reality in check. Firm structures and foundations are vital to providing some predictability in our lives; otherwise, there’s only chaos and disorder, right?

    Problems arise when Uranus challenges Saturn, disrupting Saturn’s linear outline of how things ‘should’ and ‘ought’ to be. We discussed some of the complications to the dilemma we are facing in more detail during our last bus episode, referencing various specific examples currently happening in our world. Uranus, very much like Aquarius, irreverently excites the awakened mind, inciting all kinds of sudden upheavals to Saturn’s efforts to establish rigid belief systems, restrict growth, and basically limit us from exploring other possibilities. However uncomfortable and irritating, these disruptions serve to liberate us, revolutionising the way we see the world and ushering out the old so that the new can come through. Struggles are inevitable, and there is every indication (sorry to be a bummer here) that these ‘glitches in the matrix’ will continue to test us, at least for the ‘time being’.

    However, in this relentlessly cold and interminably icy “winter of our discontent”, Uranus in Taurus strikes this Saturn-encrusted Aquarian lunation like an icepick to the forehead, trying to hack its way to clearing humanity’s third eye. While it’s questionable to the status quo whether the icebreaking efforts seem necessary, coming off as hapless and precarious, they are nonetheless steady and relentless.

    In one sense, we must aim to achieve delicate poise and balance when integrating Saturn’s influences. Even though the old guard pushes us earnestly to understand and work with prevailing structures and limitations, his constricting, ‘fear-based’ method can also cause us to settle for too little or deny our innovative endeavours because we are afraid to venture out to what is really possible.

    We shall see that Uranus’ agitating influence is pervasive, not only in his current square but in his rulership over Aquarius. One way or another, the disintegration of old analogue-style paradigms, endemic within most of our institutions and large structures is happening. The digitisation of our world seems like a necessary step in establishing a new order, one that will allow the quantum computing models of tomorrow to function more comprehensibly.

    Traditional establishments we have long taken for granted regarding healthcare, medicine, science, religion, politics, education, and social programs are crumbling around us. At the fractal ends, new formations are seething, bristling with vitality and gathering momentum. Despite all the perceived suppression and restriction, all kinds of nervous agitation is building, ready to unfurl and push humanity’s progress forward, all just a necessary part of the Uranian/Aquarian influence.

    Many blessings, and may you have an amazing New Moon xx"

    RED ALERT FOR THE NEXT 2 WEEKS (Full Moon square NODES)
    February 3, 2022
    https://angstoic.com/2022/02/red-ale...-square-nodes/


    "As a kid, I wasn’t much into ballgames, but I remember the hissy grande mal schoolyard tantrums thrown by those kids who, whether because they were too spoilt or severely damaged, would spitefully snuff out the joy once an activity turned to their disadvantage.

    “I’m taking my bat and ball and going home” was the belligerent warcry of the psycho superbrat who, when he doesn’t get his way, would openly lose his composure and wreak vengeance on those too dubious to accept his unyielding mandates.

    By dramatically abdicating one’s active participation, sabotaging the play, or spitefully removing the critical tools of the game, one could effectively ruin all hope of a happy outcome for all.

    Classic Scorpio South Node stuff…

    Yeah, that’s right: it’s effectively “game over, folks” till we finally figure out that those we kindly allow into our creative ‘love-zone’ are possibly possessed with a malicious mind-virus, which sooner or later is going to detonate, unleash all hell, and ruin it for everyone.

    As Frey once said about fellow eagle, Henley, “no one can suck the fun out of a room faster than that dude…”

    Leading into the next Full Moon is a hiveful of dramas, which I want to pick apart gingerly, and with an appropriate degree of love and understanding. Everyone has their breaking point, and over the next 18 months, we are all going to be somewhat tested, especially if we stray from the centre towards the edges."

    MERCURY/PLUTO: Mental Persuasion, Propaganda and Mind Control
    February 11, 2022
    https://angstoic.com/2022/02/mercury...b3MwYOtP3yXNzI


    "The lower, pre-conditioned mind is a networked terrain where thought patterns, idea-concepts, words and language are formed, symbols of our past and present perceptions stored in our memory, from which we draw to convey messages.

    Our mind is constantly interacting with stimuli in immediate environs, scanning for relevant data to sort and assimilate. Our five senses perceive an array of sights, sounds, smells, feels, tastes, which over time, formulate specific transmissions for our brain to receive and process. This data collection, verification, sorting, and retrieval process is the function of Mercury – ruler of the mundane (lower) mind. Bridging neural pathways, through which spatial information reaches our consciousness, to cosmic messenger provides our core being (Sol) with vital messages from the outer worlds. Perceived spatial information helps us shape a picture of what’s happening around us, allows us to understand the location and dimension of objects and how different objects are related. It also allows us to visualise and manipulate objects and shapes in our heads to make creative decisions.

    Mostly, these messages are ordinary and familiar, easy to see and understand. However, there are times when our mind perceives and processes thoughts and ideas that are extremely obscure and intense, and our senses become powerfully overloaded. In such events, our mind may either turn off dramatically; neural pathways may become burnt out and damaged (trauma); or otherwise develop a fascination to repeat the experience, learn more about what motivated it.

    Picture a child, confronted with an open flame. Its senses will tell the brain this is hot, and the child will either decide to move away (aversion), touch the fire (get burnt), or become tempted to play with the fire and try to work out its properties, uses and even misuses.

    Subconsciously our mind has the power to either shut down entirely or take us further than what meets the eye on any matter. Through our spatial experiences, our minds discover what we will deem as harmful, grotesque and distasteful and what we might find fascinating, intriguing and alluring enough to get stuck on.

    This is what happens when Mercury meets dark underlord Pluto. Whether by transit or as a featured aspect of your birth chart, the Mercury/Pluto mind becomes equipped with the capacity to form intense liminal relationships between the inner and outer world. Depending on the suitability of the information, the individual will determine whether to shut out entirely (revulsion) or to become deeply engrossed with specific idea (compulsion) to the extent of understanding its hidden power or motive, amassing a kind of supernatural capacity to manipulate that idea into constructive or destructive means.

    In favourable aspects (sextile, trine), this combination comes across as an ability to triumph or dominate in the realms of the intellect. The thought process is shrewdly critical, penetrating the psyche with all the investigative skills of a master detective, psychologist, or propagandist marketeer, able to grasp what ideas motivate, stimulate or trigger others. Natives with this combination may employ a sly, cunning manner to tease, tempt, or persuade their subject’s weak or unsuspecting mind, charming them to reveal their innermost thoughts or convincing them to adopt or abandon a desired idea.

    Any idea promulgated with enough intensity or by the application of subtle, spaced repetition has the ability to enter and alter the subconscious mind’s thinking patterns or opinions, be it for selfish reasons or to serve a greater agenda. Through sheer indoctrination, the mind’s ability to evaluate evidence or even disagree is arrested or cleverly forbidden.

    This combination is found in the signature of the analytic psychologist, forensic interrogator; the investigative journalist who uncovers a great scandal; neurolinguistic programmer; influential critic; the mentalist/magician; the powerful orator who enchants the masses with his word; the slick marketing madman, the demagogue, the plagiarist, and generally anyone who distorts, conceals or fraudulently misrepresents the truth.

    In the more challenging aspects (square, opposition), there can be a certain ruthlessness in getting our point across, especially where others seem immune, hesitant, objectionable, non-consensual or impossible to convince. Pushing a point too hard, such as through irrational and intense rage, twisting a narrative, minimising objections or trivialising concerns, can often result in mentally abusive, oppressive, and even stigmatising relationships. Stonewalling, the cutting off of all communication (often referred to as ‘the silent treatment’), is a subversive means of coercion that can be just as damaging.

    It must be said here that variations of the Mercury/Pluto condition, or its equivalent of Mercury in the 8th House, Pluto in the 3rd House, Pluto in the 6th House, Mercury in Scorpio, Pluto in Gemini, Pluto in Virgo is found both in perpetrators and victims of this combination. Your astrologer should be able to assess the developmental stages and potential activation dates more accurately after considering your entire chart.

    In extreme cases, excessive mental strain, whether episodic (transits/progressions), or somehow inherent (natal), can produce severe mental anguish. Since stress is cumulative, it eventually erupts into spells of uncontrollably psychotic rage when not adequately released. Gaslighting, the practice of persistently projecting a false narrative that leads another to doubt their own perceptions to the extent that they become disoriented and distressed, is the most malignant form of this aspect, and it is prevalently expressed through the more challenging aspects (squares, oppositions, even the maligned conjunction).

    Sufferers of the Mercury/Pluto mind-control trauma usually present a two-tiered condition, where they may harbour an unspeakable secret whilst simultaneously deflecting attention away from it. Like victims of the complex Stockholm Syndrome, they appear entirely brain-jacked while compulsively obsessed with asserting specific thoughts. A deeper study of mental coercion or victims of mind-control often reveals complicated distortions or a complete absence of consciousness, such as intellectual detachment or dissociation that is difficult to diagnose.

    Natives may bury down all kinds of resentment, sometimes for decades. Like all Pluto afflictions, it surfaces as bizarre and twisted behaviour. A partial or complete mental breakdown may occur when a monumental life crisis triggers the individual. Counselling and much healing work will help with the wounding and seemingly irreparable harm.

    Some ideas implanted into the brain can be like weapons, whether administered forcefully or subtly through spaced repetition; words can be sharper than knives, cutting deeply into the soul and leaving scars that are difficult to heal, often carrying through several generations. The Plutonic cycle is long (246 years), and its effects on transforming our thinking and language through culture is slow and thorough.

    In our times, it is an emerging phenomenon that the root cause of many of the mental stresses and disorders we are all somewhat deeply vulnerable to is inherently a form of cultural or ancestral mind control. Being forced or indoctrinated into a way of thinking, talking, perceiving reality is an intrinsic part of our culture. Mental sculpturing is a heavy feature of our parental upbringing, passed on to us through our family conditioning and customs, education systems, news media, and all forms of advertising and government propaganda. It seems everyone has an underlying agenda to control the way we think.

    In one sense, this subterranean force serves to summon our minds to evolve into much more effective tools that serve the divine process of change and adaptation. If we all work together by thinking together, we can assist with what is best for our entire species. However, when misused for the personal or egotistical profit of one individual or party, it can turn into abuse which is difficult to monitor and arbitrate the extent of, especially since much happens in secrecy or seclusion.

    All through our lives, we are subjected to the thought-control of those whose ideas are either successful at influencing us or whose status is so influential that we feel powerless to deny, even if we know there is something oppressive. There are times when others, like demagogues and svengalis, forcefully inflict their distorted ideas upon us in such a way that we are left feeling unable to argue or refuse. They tax our mental strength and disturb our nervous systems so severely that our only recourse is losing our minds and surrendering to madness.

    The practice of mindfulness seems like the only defence here. Yet often, by the sheer mass of Pluto, the mental processes of Mercury become so possessed and enslaved by obsessive thinking that there can often be no release but complete breakdown. According to mystics, this nervous break is often the precursor to one’s spiritual awakening – the only true release from mental enslavement.

    As Venus had done in December, Mercury’s been hovering before Pluto since the end of January, forming sustained conjunction due to his retrograde. This current back and forth over Pluto by Venus and Mercury intensifies the need for an emotional, psychological and ideological shift. Mercury’s retrograde in Capricorn has dredged up many situations where mass-formation using guilt-laden mind games, manipulation of facts by people in authority, the issuing of extreme ultimatums by governments and corporations, the need to face toxic memories with our patriarchal parent, have all been providing an opportunity to see deeper into our fundamental problem with aim to resolve it and evolve.

    Since Pluto works in the shadows, few individuals feel they possess the personal power to step up and achieve the necessary shift, given the corporate/state-controlled media seems likely to conspire to condemn them as scapegoats for daring to expose the hidden powers. Those who do this do so at their peril, for the censorious Capricorn powers are ready for the ultimate takedown. As we are seeing, it is best to unite with others to speak in one voice to expose the hypocrisy and double standards. Mass rallies and posturing into teams in preparation for a terminal fight against misinformation and restriction of movement, thought, speech is the precursor to what is coming up for us in the coming weeks of late Feb-Mar 2022.

    Unless we can see something for what it is, we cannot hope to withstand its insidious attempt to control us or shut us out completely. Many will remain hypnotised, used as pawns or fodder, oblivious to the mind-control process since they are essentially not operating from their own centre of authority and light.

    A most detrimental effect upon all culture is playing out under the hypnotic spell of the Pluto/Eris squares (2020-2022) [See article]

    Humanity is summoned to seize back control of our mental faculties, which have been usurped over many generations by clever masterminds. These power-obsessed individuals have been craftily shaping how our civilisation thinks and moves through subtle indoctrination. Religion, education, politics, media, law, art; all cultural institutions have been hijacked and employed as instruments by which to manipulate the truth to keep us from expressing our voice.

    Through deeper probing into these structures and finding ways to extricate ourselves from unpropitious influences, we gradually understand the source of this power, transform our way of thinking, and somehow reclaim the ability to think and speak for ourselves.

    How does it affect your own journey in mastering your power of persuasion?

    Aries/Aries Rising
    You may feel like the outsider here, but you’re ambitious enough to seize on any opportunity for advancement should it arise. Have the wits to outsmart anyone who poses a risk or threatens, obstructs or inhibits whatever direction you have set your sights on or the objective you’re trying to achieve. Whilst you aim for a deeper, more meaningful communication, beware of engaging in mental battles with those in authority – they could wipe you out. Best to allow your mind to become more receptive to the greater forces, responding accordingly to what society needs from you to transform rather than blocking it out due to selfish or dogmatic ideas and attitudes.

    Taurus/Taurus Rising
    Such is your enthusiasm for convincing other people with your beliefs that you stand to make a great teacher (or spruiker). Being so highly compelling with presenting the ideas you espouse, you could easily convert others to your philosophy, religion or political views. Whilst you may enjoy some success in impressing others, it’s fair to warn you: if you lack any true moral code; operate from a selfish design to manipulate the minds of others for personal gain; try to fool or dupe others to make yourself feel superior, this could result in legal consequences that could be equally catastrophic to your reputation or social esteem later. Teach by example.

    Gemini/Gemini Rising
    Through your intimate dealings with others, a true evolution of your mental powers takes place. You possess a strange capacity to break down outgrown and limiting ideas and ways of looking at things so that new perspectives may form. It is an alchemical process that can burrow increasingly deeper into the true nature of what motivates the structured mind. Here, you wage an intense war between those who desire to communicate and those who are stuck in fear of expressing their true intent, thus externalising any hidden agendas by sheer application of mental pressure.

    Cancer/Cancer Rising
    Your communications with others, especially words exchanged with partners, act like incendiary missiles fired into the most profound and hidden aspects of their minds. Seek to guide and support their transformation and healing by engaging them in intense yet subtly probing dialogue. Those with whom you hold a special significance in your life can benefit from your ability to help them reveal the shadowy recesses of their minds. As you sharpen your mental prowess through close liaisons, be mindful not to allow obsessive or coercive thinking to take over and possess you or the other party. Ward off trying to pass off conservative mental patterns that are outdated or simply stagnant to one another.

    Leo/Leo Rising
    It has become your supreme talent to shed enormous light on situations that have stifled ideas and curtailed thinking or speech to the point where your work has become oppressive, or you cannot express yourself as you please. It would be best if you worked hard to transform this thinking into more positive outlets. With supreme mastery, you help cut out the negative aspects of your work and health routine, rebuilding new channels of thought and communication, especially in your ‘workplace’. Beware that you do not use your mental powers to manipulate others into doing things they do not want to do, press them into guilt or shame for their efforts, or so you can avoid having to do your own ‘dirty work’. Avoid being a hypocrite, or you will be called out. Help to foster a deeper connectedness in your workplace so that you may do great things together with others in a team environment.

    Virgo/Virgo Rising
    You take extreme pride in communicating confidently and in such an authoritative manner that you manage to express what is most important. Beware of overt egotism in trying to push any of your extreme ideas or opinions onto others. Respecting boundaries and giving others the freedom to argue or debate with you will warm them over to your views. This can mark the beginning of a tremendously fruitful creative venture, one that can penetrate deeper into the world of structured or traditional thinking and entertain new ways of looking at things.

    Libra/Libra Rising
    Any insecurities that lurk inside you, especially those that arise from your roots, culture or early conditioning, could manifest now as a mental obsessiveness to find their cause. If the pressure within you builds too much, it could explode into emotionally fueled domestic arguments. You can avoid these intense blow-ups on your home-front by learning to relinquish any old ties, especially those that pull on your guilt strings or past inadequacies. Whilst there is an emotional need to probe deeper into your past, you must learn not to hold things too personally. The skeletons of your past or revealed family secrets have little or nothing to do with the present. Bring them to light in order to let them go, forever.

    Scorpio/Scorpio Rising
    Accessing a deeper, more penetratingly truthful source of communication may be a significant part of your mental metabolism. For a long time now, you have been psychologically obsessed with controlling thought and opinion, primarily through your spoken or written work, aiming to influence those closest to you. This can now develop into bitter mental battles with relatives or neighbours. Try to allow your mind to be mentally receptive to spiritual energy rather than shutting out reason due to rigidly and relentlessly held attitudes and ideas.

    Sagittarius/Sagittarius Rising
    If your entire value system seems at times inordinately focused on gaining massive reserves of mental power from which to pursue some kind of financial advantage merely, know that this is your identification with fear, not love. Do not allow your mind to become structured to focus only on making money. Sure, you can easily find windows in the system to jump through and grab whatever materials opportunity presents you. The real value is in how you use these to transform the physical world to rise above fear profoundly. Things are not just there for your own selfish ends. Use these to bring change into the lives of others.

    Capricorn/Capricorn Rising
    The force of your mental acumen must become sensitive to the ideas of others rather than be solely focused on your own. You project a lot of power, often in a low-key, subdued manner. Suppose you attempt to dominate others with your ideas. In that case, you will only frustrate and weaken the relationship rather than offer the genuine support necessary to help others through their critical changes. Be kind and understanding. Try not to identify too much with your ego. This is not about you feeling superior. Allow the intense communication process with others to grow both yourself and others when connecting.

    Aquarius/Aquarius Rising
    A reminder that you are so vulnerable to the negative opinions of others that lower vibrational communication like nagging or gossip about you has the subtle effect on unconsciously sapping your mental energy. You may worry endlessly without knowing why. If your progressive mind finds it excruciatingly difficult to focus, then you must learn to still this mind by simplifying your life and those things for which you feel responsible. It is likely that you have unconsciously misunderstood your role in matters that either do not concern you at all or that you have tried to avoid due to some fear of facing them. Purify your mind through meditation, then deal with putting these matters to rest.

    Pisces/Pisces Rising
    You are possessed with a rare genius to communicate complex social ideas with a certain intensity, which you can use to win friends and influence many. Keep this in perspective. This is not about advancing your often subdued egotistical means and ends. The universe has appointed you as the messenger of the light of the darkness because it currently entrusts that you will be least likely to abuse the power to transform society’s thinking. Your capacity to comprehend higher, more subtle thought concepts such as compassion or forgiveness, or infinity and eternity is profound and true. Your ability to channel and articulately introduce these concepts into society’s mental mainstream is also profoundly poetic and artistically creative. These are not constructs of mere mathematical sense or scientific fact. Find a way to communicate them so they sound so. "

    FULL MOON at 27°59' LEO - Mind/Body/Soul Standoff
    2/16/22

    https://app.getresponse.com/view.htm...hv4&z=EMOPtV1&

    "The current lunation, culminating at 27° Leo/Aquarius, intercepts the Moon's Nodal Axis at 27° Taurus/Scorpio, creating a fixed grand cross - perhaps the tensest dynamic in astrology, since all four points are at cross purposes, each trying desperately to nullify each other to survive.



    Those caught up in (or near) the fixed 27° maelstrom of this lunation would feel pulled in all directions, seemingly incapable of reaching any resolution. Since this event involves the Sun, Moon and Nodes, it becomes much more than any mere existential conflict, which would surface as a crisis through our relationships. Indeed, this goes deeper than our usual mind/body dilemma, activating the soul level.

    A fixed mind-body-soul standoff puts many of us in a vexing predicament where there is extreme pressure to change. Still, we seem so comfortably entrenched (fixed) into our ways that we refuse to budge, expecting others to yield. Since they seem equally as comfortable with how things are on their end, the standoffs we face ultimately lead to hesitation, uncertainty and a crippling of progress.

    Whether on a most intimate level or in the broadest, sociopolitical terms, it would seem that some extraordinary shift - a miracle, as it were - might be required for us to solve the conflicts exemplified by this highly auspicious Grand Cross.

    Full Moons have a way of holding uncomfortable matters up to our face, accentuating areas of our lives that require mediation, amendment or termination. These are most commonly evident in our most intimate relationships. It is as if to say, "look at this awkward aspect of your ego... are you aware that you behave in such an unaware manner? It bothers me that you can't see that."

    Usually, the luminance of the transiting Sun pours conscious awareness upon the unconscious element, as mirrored by the Moon in its opposite. Yet, under this Nodal axis interception, our soul is faced with a deep inner confusion or inability to sway towards a compromise or a pragmatic solution. It feels that any move, even the slightest to any side, may present a mortal lose-lose outcome, a sort of soul-destructive sell-out in both principle and integrity to who we are and what our whole mission here may be all about.

    Where are you feeling it? Is there a solution? And what if you refuse to yield to what your higher mind or instincts are calling you to do? What are the consequences, both now and in the long term? Do you stand to gain, or will you be forever carrying around a lifetime of regrets?

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

    I think Ang has moved permanently from Australia to Peru (and who can blame him).
    He just recorded a one hour video while touring the ancient ruins at Saqsaywaman, starting out talking about the Pluto Return for the US.
    https://www.facebook.com/ang.stoic
    He has a youtube page too here:

    ...but this latest 1 hour vid from Peru isn't on there, as yet anyway.

    “Welcoming the New Feminine” A Prelude to the Pisces New Moon
    February 27, 2022
    https://angstoic.com/2022/02/welcomi...sces-new-moon/



    "The feminine ‘planets’ – the MOON (needs), VENUS (desires), NEPTUNE (dreams) form the matrix into which we create our material reality.

    All that you experience in the physical world is feminine. It is the feminine energy; the mater that holds you; supports your intentions, allows the non-manifest to manifest. Feminine energy is the emotional mirror that reflects your design.

    Even your experience of the most aggressive man is of the feminine energy – your masculine projection ricocheted back at you.

    Be mindful. We are in a liminal state.

    If we look closely, we can observe something extremely abstruse, yet significantly poignant is occurring to the awakened beings upon this earth at this profound moment. As Venus/Mars prepare to pass through Pluto’s soul-regenerative underworld, we come to renounce our ideas of gender in the conventional sense.

    Those who see through the smoky mirror; the divisive construct of ego in the 3D material, can also see that our struggle has nothing to do with gender. It all has to do with energy.

    It is the feminine energy that facilitates all creation, allowing the unborn, the obscured, the unimaginable – like an idea, to become engendered into form, into being, to become born, and realised.

    Our entire experience in the world around us, absolutely everything we encounter, is held, together, by the great feminine force. Remembering that the only way anything exists in your world is through the feminine force, allows the conscious shapeshifting to commence.

    En masse, we are ready to transform. By deliberately breaking socially imposed taboos, relinquishing our attachment to the limitations and restrictions of outworn social norms, transgressing the old fear-ridden paradigms in the feminine field, we are ready to break through the old matrix.

    By tantrically aligning our intention for collective unity, harmony and unconditional acceptance into the feminine field, we are ready to dispel a world fraught with malevolence and darkness, obscured by the tyranny of lies and distortions, and begin to create a whole new dream for this planet.

    We gotta hold it together now people. This Plutoficaction of Venus and Mars is going to first polarise to the extremes before totally breaking down our emotions toward one another, leading us (for a while) into one of the darkest chasms we can know.

    Trying to keep ourselves together will be hard, and possibly cold and lonely unless we break through the veneer of the relentless advertising campaign to keep us ill, scared, broke, spiteful and resentful towards the matrix.

    Your emotions fuel this thing, and whether individually or collectively, if you generate negative emotions, you empower the world of tyranny and oppression.

    Under Jupiter/Neptune, we gotta shift beyond the religion or perfunctory spirituality that shallowly preaches “think happy thoughts”. We need to stop this and any other escapist bull****. We might actually need to expand science into mysticism, to help us fight the harsh divisiveness within and focus all our feminine energy towards regenerating an emotional field that restores balance to the madness that is unfolding (out there and inside)."

    CYCLES OF REFORMATION
    February 28, 2022
    https://angstoic.com/2022/02/cycles-...-bus-tomorrow/


    "The emotional field is highly charged. The extremely tense atmosphere generated on this planet by the emergence of war is the single most terrifying state that the human psyche can experience.
    Our own emotions feed into this field. What we see is a reflection of how we feel, both about ourselves, towards those around us, the greater sum of humanity.
    Forces as far down as PLUTO are acting to intensify, heavily polarise and manipulate our emotions.
    If we stand in a neutral space, we may see that what is going on is a heavily lopsided matrix, one where fear generates fear, fear of others, fear of oneself. Compassion, healing, universal goodwill, and mutual understanding go out the window, and under this New Moon there is a danger of buying into a deluded morality.
    Some critical discernment may help us to see both the forest and the trees, help us regain some sense of accuracy, agency, possibility, and control in the current situation. Yet as we know, when we are overcome by emotions, rational thinking suffers."

    "In the meantime, those of you (like me) who rise hours before dawn will observe the darkening Moon move from the tightening VE-MA-PL-VS stellium to the ME-SA conjunction in the eastern skies. It is a spectacular heavenly picture, and the ancients would have been in awe at the omens.
    Whilst intellectually cold as ice, emotionally, this can be a horrendously cruel and volatile time and those who can hold themselves together, ie., refrain from unconsciously projecting their tempestuous desires upon the smoky-mirror matrix will make an easier ride of this. Meditation, or mindfulness, is the key to seeing why all the bizarre goings-on in our world are an absolutely necessary part of the many different cycles, now simultaneously coming up for reform, renewal and regeneration.

    "A QUANTUM LEAP OF CONSCIOUSNESS" - NEW MOON AT 12°07' PISCES
    3/2/22
    https://app.getresponse.com/view.htm...hv4&z=EB4TCE7&


    "Greetings Fellow Travellers,

    It would seem that the world we live in is in a state. We are in a state of chaos and disorder; it would seem. Anyone you ask, every news channel, every expert and man-in-charge is here to tell you that the 'system' is spiraling out of control, that we are drifting aimlessly into the abyss.

    The world seems plagued by an unstoppable disease, our future threatened by extreme climate swings; authoritarian demagogues are now pushing the precipice of war and thermonuclear destruction, and meanwhile, famine, hunger, and creeping unemployment seem not too far from our door, thanks to sweeping economic trends in industrial automation, robotics and machine-learning algorithms taking over the urban landscape and replacing our jobs.

    Several times daily, we are told that the world is out of control. The warnings are dire and increasingly more desperate that we must snap out of our complacency, our evasive, unresponsive and illogical delusions and step up to do "the right thing", or at least step aside and give it up to someone who can rise up and control this chaos.

    But really? Is this 'issue' with chaos new? Has 'man' not struggled with the seemingly cruel and seemingly random ravages of nature - climate, disease, war, feeding the tribe - since the dawn of 'time' (as a linear concept)? Has not, throughout the 'ages', 'man' attempted to find some sense of order, structure and control over this chaos? Do we not say he 'man-ages' things because of his efforts to bring chaotic times under some level of predictability and control?

    We observe that the greater, more advanced the man, the greater his need to control the times. Which times? Those would appear to be the past, present, and future in the linear sense. The supreme man cannot have any discrepancies and inconsistencies to his official narrative of orderly structure and tight, trim control.

    Today's man is replete with supercomputers and a hive of scientific experts in super-advanced labs that are not only tasked with dispelling yesterday's superstitious errors and discrepancies but with seeking to solve all today's problems whilst making inroads to state-of-the-art solutions in anticipation of tomorrow's possible catastrophes.

    And from what we're told, those are huge, and we should worry. We should place all faith in man because only HE (whoever that is) has the power and wisdom to bring all this catastrophic chaos under control.

    Have we become completely out of touch with chaos? Have we, in an effort to create a perfectly linear structure, lost touch with the underlying principles of randomness, evident only in studying the cyclical nature of this universe? This is why, as much as we try to interpret history, we miss its recurring lessons. We are not the first generation who has attempted to decipher and control the randomness of nature. This 'Chaos' element is feared by the dominant archetype of our world, which is the masculine Ego. Man's Ego clenches because he defines the mere existence of a chaotic matrix as a lack of control, and that cannot be. Man's plight has always been to understand the matrix, to crack the feminine code and find the 'secret' formula that provides perfect order to the seeming randomness of this universe.

    In this, it is highly plausible, given traces of physical evidence here, that higher forms of intelligence have once passed through this plane on their journey to discover this hidden power.

    In the age of AI, every aspect of consciousness must be assumed to be trackable, measurable, studied for patterns and hence made predictable. But is this truly possible?



    Those who study astrology know there are only cycles, cycles around cycles, cycles that affect other cycles. Cycles obscured by cycles. Cycles within cycles. If you observe these closely, you will see that history does nothing but repeat itself. What we call 'chaos' is simply cycles we haven't yet recognised: planets or celestial bodies we have not yet discovered, or taken into account. What we call 'random' is just cycles we can't yet decipher. What we don't fully understand we dismiss as nonsense or magic. What we can't factor into our credited theories we ridicule and deride as superstitious mumbo-jumbo and religious double-talk.

    If we look at the universe as a finite system, we derive that there is, in fact, no free will...

    (or is there?). There are no variables. Everything exists in a set matrix (the feminine), a pattern of interconnecting cycles into which there is always a fixed outcome that man (the masculine) does not yet understand. But he is getting closer.

    The bridging of the conscious with the unconscious occurs in the cyclical conjunction of the Sun (masculine) and Moon (feminine) every month. The confluence of energies between these two luminaries provides a beaming glimpse, not just into this primordial cycle of self-awareness, but illuminates where we are in relation to other simultaneous cycles. The current lunation, at 12°07' Pisces, is about to coincide with Jupiter at 14°17' Pisces.

    There is something seemingly chaotic, random and mysterious about this mutable/water sign, yet only the Piscean knows that this is all an illusion. The highest form of Pisces knows that there is no such thing as randomness in the sea of seeming infinity. Just the power to tune into the entire matrix, embrace it as a 'whole' of possibilities, but in which there is ultimately only one possible outcome, one truth. This powerful triple conjunction opens new doors for all of us wishing to see through the smoky mirror of distortions, lies and conjecture. And the sextile (60°) phase to the awakener Uranus, produces a sudden euphoric sense of liberation, a quantum leap of consciousness for the spirit of awareness that lurks inside the mind of every observer. Whilst seemingly separated into billions of individuals, Pisces reminds us that we are all witnesses to the one experience, if only we can see beyond the misty veil; the smoky mirror of the Ego.

    This 'awakening' is a welcome tool in a Pluto-darkened world, now blindly possessed with a mania to seize complete control and manipulate the interpersonal and material world to its own means, as indicated in the VENUS-MARS-PLUTO triple conjunction now occurring in the patriarchal, hierarchical Capricorn. Concurrently, a MERCURY-SATURN conjunction indicates that we are commencing a new cycle of scientific enquiry, which in Aquarius seeks to get to the cold hard facts without bias or any partial preferences or dependencies.

    It is the launch into a new age, a war of ultimate light versus darkness, and we are entreated and implored to take arms and fight for the love of truth, harmony and greater understanding of this magnificently sacred matrix, the divine mother that holds us.

    Many Blessings, and may you have an amazing New Moon xx"

    FULL MOON at 27°40' VIRGO - Attending to the Cosmic Details
    3/18/22
    https://app.getresponse.com/view.htm...hv4&z=EVzyS5k&


    "The discriminating Virgo Full Moon is our emotional mirror to the idealistic intentions of the Pisces Sun. She provides a hard-nosed, critical reflection to his otherworldly, escapist, impractical, spiritually transcendent shine.

    In the prelude to the 2022 ARIES EQUINOX, the Virgo Moon's opposition to the Pisces Sun and string of planets generates high anticipations for a perfect world, enchantment with the immaculate and per­petual dissatisfaction with the realities of life.



    If you're feeling run down, disillusioned, exhausted, wishing to retreat into fantasy, pining for a different time or aimlessly drifting in search of a better place, then this is a time to take stock. If you feel paralysed by the confusion you or others have created in your world, incapable of making any sense of the apparent chaos, then this Full Moon acts as a portent to release old ties, cease to engage in unhealthy habits and come to terms with any delusions or anxieties.

    In the Pisces/Virgo melee, you've either become stuck attempting to resolve a particular issue and have lost perspective, or sensing the whole damned crisis as insufferable, but unwisely trust that that the matter will take care of itself, so fail to apply yourself to the tasks required of you.

    Yes, the world is in a state of chaotic currents. As the Jupiter/Neptune conjunction approaches, we seek to escape from tedious work or other re­sponsibilities which seem mundane, cruel or unnecessary but slowly become lost in a fog. Our emotional self-indulgence clouds our rational thinking, and we become distracted from one irrelevancy to another.

    At this Full Moon, if you're swinging between being overly accepting, evasive and dismissive to be­coming disillusioned, bitter and critical, especially in your relationships, you may need some guidance to view matters more realistically. Of primary concern, you must learn to be more discrimin­ating in your relationships and protect yourself from those who might abuse, harm or exploit you.

    Finding the right balance of giving emotionally and serving practical needs to the most deserving people in the most immediate circumstances becomes a primary issue, often overlooked. Most important is the need to set energetic boundaries (emotional and physical) so that our surrounding world does not invade our sense of autonomy or undermine us but instead strengthens and fully opens us to divine energies.

    Whilst our structured world appears to be swirling rapidly in a confusing sea of chaos, we are also becoming divinely attuned to cosmic energies, which inspire our minds to see the details of our existence in terms of the whole picture. Therefore, it is incumbent upon each of us to de­vote ourselves to meaningful tasks, let go of distractions and resist intrusions, focus on our work and meditation as a way to serve and intuitively connect to the energies of the universe.

    .. Leading into the new astrological year and May's eclipses, our world is punctuated by a series of forcefully transformative lunations. We can no longer afford to hide away, sit on our hands or deny that there is work to be done at the most local, personal level. It's the integrity of our inner intentions, the purity of the light that we project outwards that needs refinement. With effort and kindness, we can care for ourselves, treat ourselves more ten­derly, and look after our emotional and physical well-being.

    Many blessings, peace and love to you xx"

    "MERCURY's conjunction with NEPTUNE now enables a direct channel between the conscious and unconscious (Jungian) mind. Both the energy and information flowing through this conduit must be carefully integrated if we're going to avoid a variety of cosmic interferences, imbalances and distorted transmissions.
    What will you dream, imagine, conceive is possible in the submarine abysses of Neptune's quantum field? What will you misinterpret as being real? Who could possibly deceive or confuse you? What mystical wonders will slip through your mental defences and what imperceptible impurities will you catch?
    Literal escape may be one option, romanticising and day-drifting into abstractions as alternatives to this abrasive reality may be another.
    In any case, rational discrimination might be difficult, yet essential if you're going to avoid getting lost along life's myriad untraversed inner paths."
    From Ang's FB page, 3/23/22


    ( I've been having some really wild dreams the past couple of nights, in which there are two conflicting realities...and waking up still feeling very confused.
    That certainly seems to correlate with Ang's description.)

    NEW MOON WARNING
    https://www.facebook.com/ang.stoic
    4/1/22


    "The Saturn/Mars/Venus effect from Aquarius galvanises the radicalisation of group mindsets, crystallising intense polarisation among us. Under this New Moon, it isn't possible to find a way to discuss this growing social divergence without participating in the process of polarisation - something we've been trying to figure out for the past 15 months, since Jupiter and Saturn entered Aquarius, at their Grand Conjunction of Dec 2020.
    What must be emphasised is the role of personal responsibility rather than ideological identification. Let's get it into our heads that we EACH have the capacity to do great evil, to inflict tremendous harm unto others. Let's stop assuming that evil only manifests itself in the minds of those we disagree with culturally, politically, religiously or ideologically.
    This Chirotic/Mercurial lunation bears a critical message to us all: To take responsibility for our potential to inflict grief, rejection, shame, and psychological and emotional harm whilst participating in the war against radicalisation. We must learn from history that when Saturn enters Pisces (March 2023-2025), society will struggle against turning into a throng of mass persecution and victimisation."





    "As the Sun, Moon, Mercury and Chiron form a rare alignment around the 11th degree of Aries, hearts & minds prepare to receive a special message from the divine - that we each have a distinct way to act in the healing of the world.
    Many of you feel shattered by the events of the past few years like your heart's been so thoroughly and irreparably broken by false promises and disappointing assurances that it's hard to find real joy again.
    Boldness is needed. The road to contentment requires that you take the first step, fearlessly, creating a new way by walking your own path. It is not a way anyone has gone for you before. You will not see any hint of predecessors on your road to happiness. The anger, grief and frustration you feel are a consequence of you not taking your own, but trying to follow the beaten paths of others.
    Following others' way to happiness often throws obstacles you can not cross and blockages inside your heart. These can break your spirit. Life cannot work for you if you do not have the courage to go your own way.
    Listen. Listen to the healing message. It is profound and screaming loudly, "Go, go your own way. Go boldly where no other has gone before!" "

    Mars conjunct Saturn at 22°24′ MARS/SATURN – Boot Camp
    April 4, 2022
    ASTROLOGY OF NOW
    https://angstoic.com/2022/04/mars-sa...TZBu782yJYrBMY



    "And so it is – our two traditional ‘malefics’ align, Mars & Saturn, again. It has been two years since their last conjunction at 00°Aq40′, (1 Apr 2020), – the same degree where Jupiter and Saturn would form their Grand Conjunction some 8 months later (20 Dec 2020).



    In Aquarius, the freedom-fighting Mars combines with the harsh disciplinarian force of a socially reformist Saturn, hampering activism and controlling ‘social justice’ waves of anger and frustrations with the distinct effort to instil new control systems. It is an indication that we are entering a whole new 2-year cycle of painstaking work, and since this cycle commences at 22°Aq24′, (5 Apr 2022), this will be the second, more advanced phase of Saturn’s execution of a whole new order.

    Mars is a particularly individualised force. Contact with Saturn, who defines reality through a cultural or political consensus, means that our personal drive must align with what is widely expected of us. This forced alignment is rarely easy since pressure seems to be applied upon our personal ‘fight or flight’ agency from the exterior. Though the experience is perhaps not the most desirable, its harsh, often cruel and unfeeling effects are enough to wrangle even the roughest and unruly of masculine energies into shape or a compliant state of submission.

    It is a time to be cautious and conservative with our actions. Any primal urges or cravings to be mighty and triumphant could potentially either hamper, frustrate or delay our capacity to act appropriately or be met with disastrous restraints and uncomfortable penalties.

    Like driving a car with the brakes on, the blockage of masculine energy generally converts to repressed anger – a pent-up fury and thwarting of one’s lower-ego drives that can become draining, debilitating, and even violently destructive. Saturn brings consequences (karmic justice) by imposing new measures, which Mars experiences as suitably hindered action.

    Transits/progressions to either one’s natal Mars/Saturn aspect, or to a natal point during a tense transit could signify danger, violence, a tendency to get hurt or injured, and destructive or pernicious manifestations of energy. In any case, the more disciplined the energy the more difficulties are overcome or vice versa.



    Physical desires seem hard to satisfy, and efforts to pursue a specific course or desired career path are met with exhausting, limiting, or fruitless outcomes.

    Sexual advances feel blocked, shamed or mocked with disdain.

    Health issues could develop, such as irritations, inflammations, infections, and fevers. Anxieties of being sidelined, bullied or victimised usually relegate one into social submission or force one to become dependent on those who would ensure their survival.

    This aspect can be unpleasant for women, who are liable to attract rather brutish, coarse and insensitive types. In relationships with others, they see them acting cynical, opinionated, easily offended and frightful to flee types. Withholding sex becomes a weapon of control by which to assert dominance over their mate. Often, fights, arguments or disagreements are a manifestation of unresolved, deeply psychological blockages or long-standing undetermined contempt for the masculine.

    However, it is the male who suffers hardest with this aspect. His sensitivity or vulnerability to issues around his maleness, pride, autonomy, and sexual self-image will drive him to disguise these with overcompensating, disproportionate or violent actions, which often escalate matters to fracture or physical exhaustion. In feeling insufficient about his insurmountable obligations, there is every possibility that he succumbs to daunting outward pressures to perform in ways that are not natural to him.

    Saturn’s 3D-world pressures and constraints, hounding expectations to act in a decreed way or produce a specific result, generate a ‘win-at-all-costs’ mentality. This culturally imposed stress negatively affects his spontaneity and ability to respond maturely. At worst, it leaves a debilitating effect on the masculine to perform creatively and his ability to be open to what the universe has to offer. Rather than stepping up to show his competency, he psyches himself into a corner, fearing failure and resignation, effectively waging a bitter war against himself.

    Hence, the unconscious masculine becomes effectively corralled into organised anger and war activities. Mobs, gangs, armies, police forces, militia, business executives and their organised workforce – any role in which the individual submits his personal drive to the collective, where Saturn’s fear-based conditions for public safety or security of ‘the state’ is the domain of the Mars-Saturn type. A latent cowardice to stand alone develops; the individual spirit is crushed; forced to fall into line with social expectations; deferring one’s standing alone to succumbing to crowd pressure.

    More positively, this fusion of energies summons much scrutiny on raw masculine power to give it a distinct shape and training. Sustained applications of strict, gruelling discipline by our hard-assed supervisor, drill sergeant, athletic coach, disciplinarian teacher, correctional officer/counsellor, or Yoda-like martial arts instructor could prime us with technical skills and unflinching attitudes that could perform high-minded projects; accomplish impossible ventures, driven by careful and well-executed agendas.

    This new, 2-year Mars-Saturn cycle in Aquarius encourages us to form new boundaries around our social consciousness and defend them more thoroughly. We need to concentrate and focus our efforts to be fair, just and considerate to others, with more patience and persistence when working through known blockages and difficulties, both personally and for our greater community.

    Ultimately, the Mars/Saturn cycle in Aquarius teaches us that every individual and organisation plays a vital role in mobilising skills, talents, and life experiences, helping humanity move towards a more just and equitable world, where we all have what we need to survive and thrive in life."

    JUPITER/NEPTUNE – Grandiose Dreams
    April 12, 2022
    https://angstoic.com/2022/04/jupiter...ndiose-dreams/



    "On April 12, 2022, Jupiter and Neptune will form their conjunction at 23°58′ Pisces. Such conjunctions occur almost exactly at 13-year intervals and, with the odd exception, fall in a different zodiacal sign each time. Over the course of 166 years, a full cycle of Jupiter/Neptune conjunctions will run an entire course around every consecutive zodiac sign, and it is interesting to observe and note the effects of such cycles upon the human psyche, both on the individual and the collective.

    First, let’s have a look at how each planet rules the different realms of human experience, both constructive and destructive:

    JUPITER
    Faith; belief in a higher power or collective purpose; openness to integrating oneself into the greater system; incorporating as much of the external world as possible into oneself; optimism; openness to self-improvement and personal growth.

    Over-confidence; arrogance; dogma (overidentification); laziness; sloppiness; scattering of energies; waste; leaving the detailed work to others; irresponsibility; overextending oneself or promising too much.

    NEPTUNE
    Attunement with the whole; Nirvana; realisation of a spiritual dimension of experience; the non-dimensioned or infinitely dimensioned realms that exist outside linear time and space; a channel for alternative realities to reach our mind, offering the possibility of truly new creations; all-encompassing compassion; living the dream.

    Self-destructive escapism; evasion of responsibilities and one’s deepest needs; covert or dishonest activity; deception or fraudulent representation; refusal to face one’s motives and to commit to anything.

    IMPACT ON THE PSYCHE
    Jupiter, along with Saturn, is a ‘social planet’, meaning its symbolism describes how one’s subjective mind consciously integrates among the wider intersubjective agreements of the universal mind. How successfully does the individual mingle among the hive? How does his/her mind contribute to fostering the growth of a collective understanding?

    Jupiter describes how one’s personal social-cultural-moral inclinations are shaped by others in his/her society, and visa versa, allowing one to cultivate greater emotional well-being (happiness, harmony, balance) or materialistic worth (wealth, physical growth, career opportunities).

    In Pisces, Jupiter supports our spiritual growth, helping us see beyond ego desires and to improve ourselves through living up to our dreams, expanding sympathy towards others, and generosity of spirit.

    Compassion and sensitivity are necessary in order to cultivate faith in ourselves, although unfocused, noncritical attitudes and escapism can hinder acting on the need for self-improvement. We start to realise that there is indeed a higher power than our higher selves. We relinquish old superstitions and perfunctory beliefs and begin to understand the importance of devoting ourselves to a social ideal that fosters greater openness and transparency. We also learn to appreciate the spiritual dimensions of life. Showing compassion toward all that suffers is a typical tendency when Jupiter transits this sign.

    Neptune, together with Uranus and Pluto, is a transpersonal planet, affecting the collective unconscious. These outer planets symbolise an altogether different paradigm of experience, representing a more abstract dimension of development in human consciousness, the schismatic departure between mundane and cosmic affairs; the divide between the tangible and the surreal, the discernible and the unknown, the mortal and the divine. Neptune itself relates to everything that is vast, immeasurable, indefinite, universalistic, but also loose, unfocused, misty, glamorous, unreal, escapist.

    Neptune’s governance over the seas – the quantum field of infinite possibilities and parallel universes (5th dimension) – often gives rise to fantastic possibilities that leave us speechless, filled with awe, wonder and confounded delight. Through Neptune’s connection to Jupiter, our social capacity for definitively forward-thinking proclamations and virtuous pontifications about experiencing the cosmic field of universal abundance are conveyed into workable 3rd-dimensional laws. Through Jupiter, Neptune subtly channels “divine formations” into mainstream society’s established narratives, promulgating the ‘shape of things to come’ through those who possess the faculty to dream or imagine another way, especially to benefit the collective plight of humanity, often emerging as blessed visionaries or gurus of a burgeoning “new order”.

    It must be said, that both Jupiter and Neptune are attributed as rulers of Pisces, the mutable-water sign.

    CYCLES OF SPIRITUAL AND COMMUNITARIAN YEARNING
    By studying the 166-year set of Jupiter-Neptune cycles, we are able to examine how, every 13 years, in one zodiacal sign after another, each conjunction uncannily portends something of the distinct quality of the sign being energised.

    For instance, the last Jupiter-Neptune cycle, which commenced at 24°17′ Aquarius in Dec 2009, introduced society to the digital social networking services of Twitter, Facebook, etc, as well as giving supreme rise to other infotech companies (Google, Microsoft, Apple) hereby changing the whole pretext of the old ‘public town-square’ way of meeting in groups and exchanging ideas, political rallying and voting and promoting liberal arts, and turning their respective gurus into new messiahs. By the end of the Aquarius Jupiter/Neptune cycle, we see a society depending almost entirely on a ubiquitous online connection for our news and commerce needs.

    Neptune changes signs approximately every 14 years. It moved into Pisces back in 2012, where it will stay until 2026. It has not been in Pisces since 1848-1862 due to its 165-year orbit. It was the time of California and Australian Goldrushes, the first transcontinental railways, the opium wars between Britain and China, of slavery abolition debates and finally Abraham Lincoln.

    2022 is the first time Neptune will meet Jupiter in Pisces since March 1856. At each conjunction, Neptune subtly introduces a possible ‘better’ future to Jupiter, who then spends approximately a year transiting through each of the 12 zodiac signs, sowing the seeds of dissolution to all the dreams that stood before, washing them away with the promise of a brand new hope, gradually inducting each of them to Neptune’s promise of ego redemption and spiritual refinement. It is a grandiose dream, but over the next 13 years, Jupiter will sell the vision to all 12 signs once (twice in its initial sign) before again meeting Neptune.

    As the Moon does for the Sun each month, Jupiter integrates the full Neptunian vision throughout the entire zodiac community in one synodic cycle. And just as the Sun transits all 12 signs in one year, Neptune completes its ‘year’ over 166 Solar years. Cycles within cycles within cycles…

    In the many ways in which he depicts society’s established way of seeing things, Jupiter brings his inimitable justice to all that is authentic and true, and triumphs over all that is not. Over their 13-year dance together, Jupiter and Neptune elevate our visions to all that is possible, helping us see how this inspired process influences our intuitive feeling, knowing, and ‘believing’ how things could be easier, more harmonious, more ‘libertarian’ and ‘woke’; and how the sharing of our heightened beliefs with others serves to enhance both socio-economic values and spiritual-ethical narratives in our culture.

    Currently at 23°58′ Pisces, Neptune will spend another 3-4 years in Pisces, introducing us to the world of dissolved personal boundaries and thrusting us into a new form of spiritual activism by the time he enters Aries in 2025-26. Meeting Jupiter here will help to pave the way for the new, spiritually evolved human, spreading his grandiose dream for cosmic oneness throughout all society.



    THE JUPITER/NEPTUNE EFFECT ON THE INDIVIDUAL
    Although the potency of idealism around this conjunction will be strong enough to affect us all somehow, some individuals will stand to be affected more than others. Those with strong Pisces, Neptune or 12th House placements will resonate quite strongly with the compassionate vibe of this period. Similarly, those with strong Sagittarius, Jupiter and 9th house charts would be inclined to ride their moral high horse.

    However, it is the natives with prominent Jupiter/Neptune aspects, Jupiter in the 12th House, Neptune in the 9th House, Jupiter in Pisces or Neptune in Sagittarius, who, if charts are significantly activated, would rise to flavour the occasion during these times. See, for instance, this recent episode of Cosmic Bus, in which I look at the charts of several individuals involved in one typical incident, which received international attention.

    There are a few things to consider here. Jupiter brings much optimism and good fortune to those who conform to prevailing trends. Those who heed the popular conventions of the social milieu, who adhere to the mainstream political agenda, observe the sacred rites of traditional religions and attend all ceremonies, follow the way of the “classical” great masters in the arts, etc. stand to do well in their communities.

    All is well until Neptune intrudes.

    Of course, there is nothing wrong with conforming; and society proves that there are often ample practical benefits when we learn to ‘fall into line’ with the ‘in-crowd’. But conforming is not accepting Neptune’s call for an evolutionary leap into higher spiritual consciousness. This crucial step; this willingness to leap into a unique inner transformation or “random mutation” of spiritual growth, requires taking some degree of risk in our ideology, deviating from prevailing patterns and conformities in what others commonly think.

    Observe those who display an extraordinary ‘woke’ sensitivity to the world’s inequities and suffering, espousing themselves to prevalent causes and social movements to ‘save the world’ and being ‘allies’ to victims somehow. Are they becoming personally involved when offering sympathy and support, weighed down by the weight of the world on their shoulders? That type of martyrdom, turning one into a victim, is often an unnecessary sacrifice that can and should be avoided.

    The Jupiter/Neptune combination is typical of the ‘high vibing hippie’ type, where archaic idealism, political naivety, and tribal consciousness integrate people into communities by spiritual rather than material ties.

    Jupiter/Neptune will undoubtedly rouse tremendous compassion, and humanitarian impulses will be strong in many naturally charitable types. However, it often exposes all those whose outward acts of altruism are rooted in immense spiritual pride, arrogance, and misplaced belief in one’s own piety or sainthood. Observe the rise (and fall) of those who posture themselves on the phoney side of spiritual conformity, if only to earn gratuitous social brownie points or to prop up their political or social profile.

    Whilst Jupiter inflates the Neptunian tendency to sense greater sympathy and compassion for others, there is also a risk of becoming a ‘gourmet of consciousness’, snagged into the collective mindstream of popular moral manias and hysterical group delusions. These weak or disingenuous gestures become increasingly transparent to many cynics during this time. Whilst devotion and missionary purpose to ‘heal the world’ are potentially positive qualities to possess, life experience often proves that misplacing our confidence in things that don’t concern us or we do not genuinely understand will unfor­tunately and inevitably lead to disillusionment.

    The self-deception factor in Neptune can be particularly spellbinding, especially in an unintegrated personality. A classic example is that of Elizabeth Holmes. Her idealism at 19 years old convinced many to invest in her vision to “heal the world” by supposedly bringing about a revolution in diagnosing disease. Her company, Theranos, at its height, valued at $9bn, fooled many investors and senior public officials into backing her based on the force of her conviction. Ultimately, she left everyone reeling when the company she founded, entirely on a phoney premise, finally collapsed. Her chart conceals a tight Jupiter/Neptune conjunction, squaring her Libran Ascendant and opposing her Cancer Midheaven in the early degrees of Capricorn.



    A more pragmatic appraisal of Holmes’ motivations and true nature would have prevented much abuse of trust and called out her self-centred, scheming and flimsy basis to take advantage of others’ gullibility, blind faith and ignorance, however well-meaning and humanitarian her intent.

    Much discrimination is required under Jupiter/Neptune so that we can recognise those in whom such fragile qualities will be rightly respected. Blind faith is a virtue waiting to be shattered, and many will be queuing up to take their shot at those who can not see the folly of their ways.

    If one is creating instances where they feign to champion philanthropic causes, publicly denouncing their ego for their spiritual ideals, yet somehow furthering their social position, we best visit them around the back door at an unannounced time. There, we might glimpse the Neptunian tendency to dis­tort one’s potential for genuine self-sacrifice. Jupiter/Neptune folks, especially those with the conjunction or hard aspects, struggle to live up to who they say they are or wish to be. Less scrupulous individuals may take unrestrained advantage of anyone who buys into their fantasy world. Such individuals pray on deluding those whose tendency for charity, sympathy, sacrifice and martyrdom are simply begging to be exploited. This is a typical projection of those with strong Jupiter/Neptune influences in their chart.

    In rare extremes, when an individual has become so intoxicated by their own guru power, a fall from grace is always inevitable. Such are the laws of gravity upon the overinflated human ego. Unless one’s spiritual ‘success’ comes from humble service, it can backfire severely and can take extreme perdition and renunciation of one’s egoistic ills to recover, if ever.

    Needless to say, this can be a time where our latent mystical bent can lead us towards involvement with trippy drugs, alcohol-fueled bad decisions or some permutation of a spiritual cult. Indeed, we would be wise to avoid any addictive substances, but should we look towards the spiritual scene, this is a time to be careful of illusions related to gurus, messiahs, cults and the like.

    Ebertin describes this combination as “visionaries, dreamers, mystics, hypocrites, speculators; scandal which is caused through one’s own instability.”

    Generating an image of unqualified spiritual morality, performing pious humanitarian deeds while worrying about how others might regard us can interfere with our search for higher truth. It isn’t unlikely that those who possess this aspect are utterly delusional about their self-image at some point in their lives. Public scandals and humiliation are more often caused by a flagrant disregard for life’s ‘earthy’ consequences than true malice.

    Those who become embroiled in interminable debates over inconsequential or phoney concepts; engrossed in worldly concerns they try hard to understand but only leave them feeling gullible; who play into fraud, mischief and deceit best take a little trip, preferably to a foreign land, explore the mysteries that lie across the distant seas, get a bit of worldly perspective. Above all, they should stop lying to themselves.

    Those who deceive themselves, who believe their own fairy tales, reach a point where they can no longer distinguish truth from fantasy, either alone or in the company of others.

    SPOILER ALERT: Those who continue to live a lie, lost in a dream world, stringing others along, are due for a rude awakening. Those who genuinely have love and compassion in their heart, whose primary purpose in this life is to help others, best stay mindful not to be hurt by them."

    "Greetings Fellow Travellers,

    There are some dire warnings to heed in this penultimate lunation before the coming Eclipses (April 30-Solar, May 16-Lunar). Under this glowing Libra Full Moon, we may see our world divided into two parts: One is where we are together with our beloveds, and there is all harmony, hope, and light; the other is where we are not, and there is sadness, anger and darkness. This Moon holds up to our face some crucial questions in the eternal struggle between war and peace...

    Is your appetite for action, distraction, excitement and incitement upsetting the equilibrium, composure, balanced lifestyle and harmony in your relationships?

    Do your moods fluctuate from high to low, rarely stabilise at the cen­ter?

    Are you swinging between leaping impulsive­ly into new and stimulating pursuits and feeling paralysed by too many options, unable to choose or commit to any single course of action?

    These are only some of the dilemmas faced under the Libra Full Moon, which, opposite the Aries Sun, polarises our mind and instincts between the action-oriented, impulsive, frank, direct, out­spoken versus the thoughtful, relationship-focused, tactful, flattering, vacillating, evaluating, indecisive, codependent.

    Much self-defining is going on, either happening internally or acted out through our affairs and associations with others. We become both protagonist and antagonist of our own story until we can confront the issues that trouble us most.

    Insecurities about our own identity can lead us to become overly engaged with those around us, as if seeking their approval and assurance. Unconsciously, we can be exceptionally receptive and possibly oversensitive to their reactions, opinions, and validation, perhaps trying too hard to be liked. We are quick to belligerence and aggressive action if we sense we are not being well-received or accepted.

    The cardinal-fire energy of Aries is entirely self-centred, intensely forthright and subjective. What it lacks in perspective and restraint, it makes up for in its raw, honest intent, both in action and thought. At this lunation, our thrust to be our natural, unbridled selves seeks contrast and reference from the world around us, specifically those we stand to affect significantly.

    Picture yourself at a talent quest, standing before three judges, ready to perform your act: You enter the room with enthusiasm and ardour, ready to make an impression. You know you have something distinctive in you, seeking to be noticed and appreciated. You boldly project yourself to these unknowns, striving to satisfy both your desire to be liked and selected and to assert your uniqueness.

    Such is the scenario when the Aries Sun stands opposite the Libra Moon. The reflection of Libran lunar energy to the Arian excitability is moderating and balancing. The Libran proficiency to carefully per­ceive and evaluate our actions' qualities helps determine which of the many expressions and possibilities is most viable and can select what works and what is merely borne from inexperience, ineptitude and hasty action.



    If we are liked, we will be told in no uncertain terms how and why. If we are not liked, we will generally receive the kind of feedback we need to hear. This does not necessarily mean it will be well-received. Since the Aries Sun is currently in conjunction with Eris, the scornful, troublesome sister of Ares (Mars), and squares the compulsive, manipulative Pluto, it is most likely that we will discover in what sense our raw intensity turns others off, drives others away, or prevents the bonds between us from becoming firm and enduring.

    The enduring Eris/Pluto square, this epic 'make or break' evolutionary grind, has been most challenging for all earthlings over these past 2-3 years, causing interminable struggles in our striving for acknowledgement, appreciation, love and acceptance. Ultimately it's about survival - nature's way of telling us that we each need to step up our act if we want to pass the audition.

    When the energy we invest into forming or maintaining relationships demands an upgrade, yet we are stuck in regressive, even primitive codes of conduct, the highly intellectualised Libran sense of fairness is quick to judge. The cardinal-air Libra is instantly repulsed by vulgar, distasteful, crude, inappropriate, incorrect, unjust, thoughtless and disproportionate displays. She needs to be assured that what she experiences will be emotionally, intellectually and spiritually compatible. Where others are involved, we need to see every effort that they will demonstrate fair­ness, consideration and a willingness to cooperate.

    If we are not aware of just how annoying our actions can sometimes be or are attempting to dominate others, especially our part­ner, then the reaction of anger quickly escalates to rage, scorn and intense strife.

    Observe the current state of our planet and the intensity of its currents due to gross imbalances. When we acknowledge that others are being entirely self-centred, hell-bent on fulfilling their individualistic desires, not contributing equally or treating us fairly, we unwittingly provoke the very conflict we are trying to avoid.

    Agitation, conflict, and wars directly result from not showing adequate respect, consideration, and cooperation with others. Forcibly imposing our will for personal expression at the expense of the liberties and freedoms of others ultimately has its consequences. Under this lunation, the Libra Moon mirrors a stark awareness of others. We are called to assert our individualistic Arian desires and intentions without distressing others; resolve interpersonal problems by finding mutually restorative solutions.

    How are you most likely causing strife and discord in your relationships? Can you see what part of your act needs to change for you to live by higher laws and to form loving, enduring relationships?


    Blessings, have an amazing Full Moon xx"
