Hades called. There’s a buy one Retrograde get 3 free sale going on. Stocks aren’t limited & participation is compulsory. 💯
We’re still following the funeral procession that was the Full Moon in Scorpio and Saturn has today slammed on the breaks, just days before Venus & Jupiter. In a few days 4 planets will be retrograde. This week will likely throw us for a loop. Think of it like being in a car going around a corner at high speed; don’t try to push against it, lean in & trust your instincts. Find your flow.
As if that wasn’t enough, the Moon in Capricorn is snuggling up to Pluto all day today making sure to rattle any cobwebs of grief & uncertainty you were hoping to ignore.
Lean in. Listen. Watch carefully. Whatever is taking flight right now will likely land as a message further along the road. 💫
I’ve been thinking about this time that we’re all experiencing together in terms of incubation. It reminds us that while it may appear like we’re doing nothing in the eyes of capitalism, we’re actively nurturing the new world into existence. Incubation allows us to observe the destruction that capitalism has on this living, breathing organism we exist on, as well as the bodies we exist within.
The world over, we’re being forced to do the exact same thing. This virus, like Aquarius, doesn’t discriminate. It takes everyone into consideration, everywhere. No one is spared. Therefore as we look at the world, and ourselves, from the inside out a consciousness shift is occurring. History shows us that major, fundamental changes in society, in how people think and what we think about is almost always accompanied by a collective event that forces the transmutation. It’s also often accompanied by great resistance from those who hold power.
This incubation means that Capitalisms’ biggest fear can be realised: when our forced participation is halted we have time and space to ask legitimate questions such as, “Why do we work to live and eat?” “Why are we contributing to systems that hurt us and the planet?” “How do we deconstruct the old and build a more inclusive, equitable, respectful new?” Whether you’re dependent on capitalism or capitalism is dependent on your poverty (financially, spiritually or mentally), the instability and inequality is being exposed and affecting everyone.
Mercury Retrograde cycles coincide with large numbers of people going offline for a short term reset-detox. It makes sense considering Mercury is the messenger of the cosmos, retrograde periods call us to review, revisit, reset and technology pervades most aspects of daily life.
October 30th, 2019 Mercury digs in its heels and stations at the 28th degree of Scorpio, or the 238th degree of the Zodiac. It will retrograde back to the 12th degree of Scorpio on November 19th. That’s 20 days for you to detox, to call back your inspiration, assess any unhealthy patterns and reset boundaries. The Phoenix you choose to rise as depends on how deep you want to go. It’s your call and you are your only judge.
For the duration of this Mercury Retrograde period I’ll be here offering Merc Perk detox tips, decoding the messages from the Cosmos and watching how the planetary configurations play out on the world stage. It’s a process of slowing down, being present, re-empowering ourselves and consciously composting what needs to be released.
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.
I’m teaming up with @them to offer you some Queer Astrology guidance.
Hit me up with your queer-ies, questions, cross-checks and concerns.
Whether you’re Saturn Returning, your crush hasn’t noticed you, Venus Retrograde has already thrown you for a loop or that dream job is still elusive – the stars are asking to guide you.
When I teach Astrology, I ask students to come to the first class with their theme song. What is THAT song, when yr walking down the street, headphones on & it’s YOUR song?
Not surprisingly, there’s often a correlation between that song & your chart…& ice-breakers suck so it’s a fun way to introduce yourself.
My song is ‘Don’t stop me now,’ by Queen – for obvious reasons – and because I’m continuously inspired by Freddie & his energy & charisma & his art. .
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, FREDDIE. You personify the hard work & dedication of practice that makes Virgo so deeply magical.
The thing about the desert is that it holds the memory of the Ocean. The thing about water is that it never forgets. 🌊🏜 💎
No matter when we exist throughout history, all living beings seek shelter and safety. While Aries (the 1st Cardinal sign) is out hunting, fearlessly gathering food, Cancer is creating our home, stoking the hearth fire so that we can all be nourished by togetherness under the same roof. It knows that if we don’t have each other, we will not survive.
In 2018, we may not be setting up home in a cave on the side of a rock, but our needs are no different to those of our ancestors. As social creatures, we all seek to belong, to be nourished, to protect and be protected.
This eclipse on July 12th activates our basic instincts, & in this there is increased potential for projection. There can be the desire to cut coldly that which has rejected us, threatened our survival and undermined our need to belong. The challenge is to sit in any uncomfortableness without reaction or retaliation.
When we say things are cool but they’re eating away at our very need to belong, we undermine ourselves and gaslight those we actually care about. …read the full Crystalscope HERE.
