If it’s feeling intense right now, it means you’re listening. But you’re also not alone.
If there was only one major transit this year ~ the Saturn Pluto conjunction occurring in January ~ we could say that the start of the year is intense but after it passes you can breathe out and get back to your life. Without wanting to play on already existing fears, it’s important we shift our view from a minor obstacle we can work through – to understanding that January is a precursor for what this year, and the future, holds. Collectively we’ve created an apocalyptic narrative that begins and ends, not one that we have to endure, slowly.
The current systems of power we’re governed by have been reigning supreme for longer than any of us have been alive. They’re not going down without a fight, which is why we’re seeing extreme responses of control, fear mongering and defence, both globally as well as personally.
If Capricorn is good at anything it’s the long-haul. Take stock of where you’re feeling vulnerable, what is potentially threatening your pocket of security in the world, and who and what holds deepest value to you. Solidarity and community connections will be our life blood when these power structures buckle under pressure.

Life is just one continuous transition. There are no breaks & not one single destination. Even the ‘breaks’ are stations reorienting us from one point to the next…to the next…
There’s a lot of activity in the sky this week that can stir up lots of feels & frustrations. There’s also the desire to make sense of the most recent Mercury Retrograde cloud that passed through & hung heavy.
Being at the halfway point of this years Eclipse Seasons we have lights illuminating the road both back & forth. When / if the heavy feels land, take them as a sign post for things that are amidst transition ~ we need to create space for the new to come in by acknowledging & releasing the old.
Control is an illusion that keeps us in stuck states, so denying ourselves direct contact with our vulnerabilities & sensitivity can only create frustrating road blocks. There’s no hurry & nowhere to go!
Look around to see what is dead or dying. The Venus Retrograde cycle is no joke, and Scorpio does not suffer fools.
The Venus Rx cycle is a 40 day – 40 night dark night of the soul journey. It’s a fasting and a detox of our values, our relationships, the people and places we’ve poured our love and money and support into…and the stench of death and decay is wafting through.
What once brought us joy, vitality and purpose may now be a shell of its former self. We may also find, if we care to have that honest, penetrating look at ourselves, that we’ve outgrown parts of ourselves and moved on, but the situation remains; the vase is still holding up the dead flowers, but no amount of water is going to breathe life back into them.
Encompassed in this current Rx cycle is Neptune at the midpoint of its journey through Pisces, and Uranus at the midpoint of the Nodes. Midpoints are a peak of energy where we can look both back and forth; familiar enough with the energy at this stage that we know the pattern, but also aware that maturity beckons in our choices.

Hi frenz 👋🏼
Here I am in my hermit cave, smelling the roses & feeling out the shifts & changes in the cosmic weathers. #cantturnitoff 🌀
There’s a lot going on! I’m seeing & feeling the pain that’s present & surfacing for folks, both personally & collectively…& there isn’t one answer or one remedy.
Good news is: we are amidst great opportunity for change & rearrangement. Bad news is it’s not a sprint race – it’s more like a marathon. Pace yourself, have snacks for the trip, keep hydrated & just. keep. going. No doubt you’re going to fuck things up along the way. Keep offering compassion & accountability in equal doses to yourself & those yr with.
I’m writing in my hermit time, & would also love to hear from you as to what’s going on & what you might like to hear about, astro-post wise.
Hit me up with which way the wind is blowing for you & lez walk through this together.

The sky is 💥HOT🔥 right now!
The Sun, Venus & don’t-F-with-me Pluto are all in a cuddle puddle throwing stones at Uranus.
Mars & Jupiter are in #scorpio helping them scheme about how they can set fire to their ex’s house & not get caught.
A few “take 10 breathes then act” will help everything right now…but if you’ve kicked that ex to the curb then keep it that way.
🔥❤️ Passions running high can do wonders aimed in the right direction. 💓LOVE THOSE YOU LOVE ~ LAY ON THE LOVE TO THOSE WHO WANT YOU TO THRIVE💓 & don’t burn anyone’s house down – though burning letters & photos is a great act of release at this time. #kbye ✌🏼
Venus joins the Sun & Jupiter in Scorpio today ~ makin’ shit pretty

✨🔮💫 Our CRYSTALSCOPES are up! ✨💎💫
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….
