Empaths and Saturn’s Boundaries

As the Moon wanes & passes through Pisces today and tomorrow, it’s possible  you’ll be visited by the ghost of despair present. Pisces feels eeeeeeverything – the suffering, the loss, the depth of emotion. There’s no separation between the pain ‘out there’ & what is experienced personally.

*Image of Saturn’s rings by NASA “towering vertical structures peak from the planet’s B ring, casting jagged shadows. The vertical structures rise 2.6km above the rings which are 9m thick.” 

Knowing this, it’s a great time to check in on your own boundaries: how much time are you spending online & are you having a balanced mix of news & kittens? If you’re an empath, are you getting enough time to recharge? Are you clear about where your limit is, now & everyday?

The shit that’s hitting the fan right now is bigger than we know. We’re only getting a slice of the pie. After we’ve seen the Earth replenish itself in our absence, Governments bail out Corporations & not people, & random strangers sharing support in abundance…do you really think we’ll go back to life as it was? No chance. Impossible.

Saturn is changing signs as we speak / scroll / virtual hangout. When we wake up tomorrow it will be in new clothes with an Aquarian agenda.

Aquarius exists in group consciousness. Aware that the group (be it society, humanity, a species) is a compilation of individuals, it desires to stand out from the crowd, to be individual amongst the herd. 

Every single one of us is being called to step up into what makes us unique. What are you here to offer? In acknowledging this, your boundaries are more easily defined. If you’re an empath, how useful are you if you’re constantly drained & not replenishing? If you’re a front line activist how useful are you if you’re not listening for the signs of burn out? 

Boundaries are not a hard wall that protect us from experiencing bad things. They are points in our awareness that signal our limits, our worth & capacity. They are each of our responsibility. What is unfolding right now is a universal long haul trucker move. Pace yourself. Know your limits and respect them so that when you’re called, you’re ready!

Cancer Full Moon eclipse 2020

Traditionally, eclipses have been ominous signs. They remind us of how little control we have. No amount of prayer, ritual or intention can stop the Earth passing between the Sun and the Moon, casting a shadow on our closest neighbour.

As the earth moves betwixt two opposing forces, we edge deeper into the dance that has been unfolding since November 2018 when the Nodes moved into Cancer / Capricorn.  #cancercapricornclusterfuck 

Since November 2018, we’ve seen a rise in Cancer / Capricorn themes: women in power have destabilised the existing model of authority. Mass migration and the strict policing of borders has highlighted the lands we all stand on; whose land is it and who gets to draw lines all over it, carving out territories that some people can cross in to but not others? More people now have a deeper understanding of ancestral trauma, or at least the term is rolling around looking for its place to land. As corruption rolls over and exposes its underbelly we are left with no choice but to speak truth to power. As borders shift and economies follow, we’re asked what is it we’ve really invested our security into? Failing to acknowledged the Earth as a living, breathing organism has divorced us from having a co-creative relationship it, resulting in unimaginable devastation.

This Full Moon in Cancer is calling us home. It’s highlighting what needs to be let go of while simultaneously drawing us toward our potential. Cancer wants us to come home to planet earth, home to our bodies and personal sovereignty, home to understanding our own ancestry and the lineage of the lands we occupy. We’re being pulled – tugged at from the inside and out – to find this balance.

Capricorn represents that which we’re releasing. As an earth sign it highlights our use and relationship with resources: oil, water, crop, division & ownership, bodies, money. Its governance over large functioning systems highlights just how long we’ve been living under the  oppressive rule of patriarchy, capitalism, white supremacy, heteronormativity, and how we’re simultaneously losing the voice of our elders. Capricorn is a cold, dry earth sign, and the cracks are showing. Without Cancer to balance it, Capricorn is in perpetual drought.

Astrology embraces opposites as part of the whole. Nothing is rejected. Capricorn, without its polar opposite Cancer, knows only how to use and control functional parts. Emotions are hailed as weak, uncontrollable and inferior. Most people can recall a time they felt like they had to bury their emotions to go to work. Capricorn steering the capitalistic ship fails to acknowledge that people are not robots, that Indigenous people have ongoing relationships to land, and that women and trans people have bodies that exist outside the law. Cancer reminds us that emotions hold up signposts for things that aren’t working. They lead us toward a more balanced, harmonious existence. 

Cancer Full Moon Eclipse, January 10, 2020

Water is not as direct as Earth. It’s pervasive, moving through the cracks and slowly shifting things from the inside out.  There’s nothing useless about small steps. There’s no weakness is stopping, acknowledging the ways in which we’ve contributed to this narrative and choosing a different path forward. We’re all welcome home, but what we’re coming home to depends on the choices we make.

Anyone wanting to understand where the energies are occurring in your own chart, I’m offering a Year Ahead reading, drawing up a month by month personalised map.

Is this Mercury retrograde over yet or WHAT?! It seems to be taking foreverrrrrrrrrrr…..
.
This Aries season has been driven by the force of Capricorn since it began! 😢 This retrograde period is a great example of how different Aries & Capricorn are, but also what can be achieved when they work together.
.
Aries is hot & fiesty, impulsive & ready to face any challenge that allows it to express courage! 💥⚡️💥
.
Capricorn, equally driven by a challenge, is more pragmatic in its approach, patient & persistent. 🌱🌳🍂
.
Put them together & you get controlled fire. 🛠🔥🔥🔥🛠
.
The ruler of Aries & this retrograde phase, Mars, is in slow & steady Capricorn. It’s kinda like driving up hill in a low gear; you know you’re gunna get there, but not in a hurry.
.
MERC PERKS: If you’re tearing your hair out waiting for something, or impatiently hurrying projects that are telling you they need more time, you can best use this energy constructively: Make plans for when the energy shifts, create strategy around obstacles & apply some patience & wisdom to anything that’s standing in your way…because there’s a LOT more energy in Capricorn right now & Grandma has been around the block more than any Aries spring chicken! #listentothelessons .
.
Respect your elders, yes, but also respect the fire & creativity you have inside you that is asking for dedication, guidance & care. You deserve that & the end product will have the stamp of sustainability instead of burnout.
.

Aries Season 2018

Screen Shot 2018-03-19 at 11.43.15 AM

 

 

It’s #ariesseason , Equinox, Spring in the north and Autumn in the south and Mercury is turning retrograde. OOOPH! Where ever you are on the planet, there is a shift in gears at this time.

.
#aries is the initiator of the zodiac – like this image by the magical @jfancydesigns – Aries represents the spark of life, the thing we all require to get up and keep going, the inspiration we need to move through challenges, and the sense of play that reminds us to stay focussed but enjoying the journey. Are you having fun?
.
If you’re like so many people I now right now, the answer is no. The heavy hitters in the sky are really pushing us all. Saturn, Pluto AND Mars are ALL in Capricorn, building toward something you can no doubt feel brewing. The tension needs direction, and this Aries season is no doubt going to test where your energy lies.
.
Mercury is turning retrograde on the 23rd and will keep running backwards all the way to the New Moon on April 15th. Whoa! What a lunation cycle! Following this retrograde period and New moon, Chiron will step from the deep well of collective Pisces pain into “let’s get real about what I’M doing about this” Aries…while the Sun snuggles up to dynamic Uranus for what will no doubt be ‘exciting’ times. OK!
.
Aries! Aries! Aries!
.
This next month is HOT! Sparks fly from fire & when we’re not tending to the fire someone is bound to get burnt. Fire also warms us and inspires us to dream and vision and to put all of our energy into what feeds our spirit.
.
Aries energy is all about getting things going, so instead of being burnt by this fire, set some things in motion in your life. Be daring! Give yourself a challenge! Initiate a project, a self-care routine, write letters to your local MP about where you see injustice, or write love letters to your self. This #retrograde period starts off with Mercury and Venus discussing their place in this revolution. What is being whispered to you at this time about your place in this divine madness of life?
.
If nothing else, let this Aries season remind you of how special and deeply important it is that you are here, participating in the unique way you do, and show up with your own mark of magic.

One for the Cancerians

Screen Shot 2018-03-13 at 10.09.55 AM

 

Looks like this ouija board was asking to be born!!! Makes me think of all the Cancerians in the world right now…& anyone with planets in early degrees Cancer.
Seems like the Capricorn’s have been duly warned about Saturn in Capricorn…but what about Cancer!? 😢

.
Saturn opposing your shit can feel like a light in a hallway that has two switches. You’re at one end turning the lights on & ol’ Saturn is down the hall looking straight at you, through you, turning it off.

.
This is not an act of defiance on Saturn’s behalf; that would be Mars. Instead, Saturn turns off the lights so you learn to see in the dark. It tests us. Our fears instantly come to life &, like this ouija board, we get to see the faces of what lies below the surface.

.
This can also devitalise you, leaving you feeling frustrated that things aren’t taking off, & people or circumstances are blocking your way forward. The thing to remember under this influence is that THINGS NEED TO STEP UP OR STEP OFF! #stepoffgeorge

.
I’ll have more to say about this next month as Saturn will hit the breaks, turn Retrograde & come by again to make sure you’re stepping up to your own responsibilities, getting a handle on your fears & addressing what’s coming to the surface. Safety isn’t always found inside that crab shell. You’re being challenged to defend your boundaries & think about what you want to build in the next cycle.

Saturn rewards hard work – count the small stuff

Screen Shot 2018-02-11 at 7.44.37 PM

 

The Moon has moved into Capricorn – joining Saturn & pppppppluto! This is is a more somber vibe, & a welcome change from the sparks & flames of the moon + mars galloping through Sagittarius for the past few days 😓🏹🔥. Phew!

.
Each time the Moon goes into Capricorn we’re reminded of Saturnian themes – both personally & collectively.

.
Saturn asks that we take our time, that we start from the ground up & master something via hard work & dedication…& that we address our fears along the way.

.
I really loved this post from @what_the_finkbecause it reminds me that the little things are worth celebrating, that they’re the building blocks that support the bigger picture we’re working towards…& that even though they may seem insignificant now or to someone else, it’s our personal responsibility to keep applying ourselves.

.
Saturn rewards hard work…& you get to define what hard work is & where you’re going with it.

.
I have 3 very specific readings for you that outlines your SR step by step. We’ll look at how & where your SR will play out, the things you’re being asked to step up & into, & those things that are best left behind. I’ll lay out a month by month map for you so you know when to apply the gas & when to consolidate & wait.
