The planets are corroborating to give us a run for our money. Change & upheaval have been ongoing themes in our recent past; there’s increased sensationalization and the extreme becoming the norm, & there’s the blinkers being removed from everyone who was once shielded by privilege to not see. . 🍂🌿🍁
The sky right now is like a wash cycle in slow motion. This slow motion feeling is coming from #Pluto stationing direct this week (stopping to move forward again). Planets changing direction literally throw us for a loop. It feels like that inertia when a car takes a tight corner.
Retrograde times and planets changing direction give us pause. When we’re indoctrinated from birth into the workings of capitalism, pausing is not an easy state. If we divide this wash-cycle-change-process into three stages, two of the three seem appealing. The 1st stage is about identifying that change needs to happen & initiating those changes. Here we disrupt the status quo. We put the laundry in the machine with ample detergent to do the job. The 2nd stage is liminal space where we are neither here nor there yet. We’ve shaken things up but not yet arrived at the other shore. The wash cycle is in motion and our laundry is swimming around in dirty water. We don’t open the machine at this point to retrieve our clothes. The 3rd stage occurs once we’ve implemented changes and we’re headed in a new direction, going ‘forward’. The wash cycle is complete, spun and dried, and we now have fresh clothes to wear again.
The first & last stages are action oriented. We have clear direction. The 2nd phase, the liminal space, is directionless and capitalism doesn’t like us being directionless. It wants us productive, in an active state, going somewhere. .
Directionlessness can be discombobulating & cause us to think that something is wrong and needs urgent attention, but what it really wants us to do is pause and look at what is right in front of us.
Adventure is one of the medicines for our mastery right now….
