Weekly Report (9th-15th)
…and listen while you read…..
“Laughter is prayer. If you can laugh you have learned how to pray. Don’t be serious; a serious person can never be religious.”
(MoOn moves into Aries)
Gas into the flames and a change of the game. As is true every month, today, the Moon crosses the Aries point, thus beginning a fresh journey around the zodiac with fire dancing in Luna’s eyes. It is good to be aware of this because when we align to it, it is fuel for desire. Being that this Moon is waning, heading towards another Lunar cycle, it relates to the need to torch an outdated aspect of your being. This part of the Lunation cycle has everything to do with letting go. So when old trigger’s come up and make you pissed, transmute the energy into purifying fire and shoot it out your palm at the cords which still connect you to that old version of self. Also, la Luna comes into contact with her current ruler–Mars–by opposing him on the opposite side of the zodiac. War? Translation: More of the purifying flame and the feeling of having to face the final boss in a video game! Resolution.
(Moon in Aries)
If we successfully singed the gnarly cord of attachment from our being with our superhuman powers, then today with be filled with clarity. If not, the cord grew another tendril and the “boss” got stronger. The 3rd quarter Moon is today, ushering in what Steven Forrest calls “the Pilgrim” experience. It is a need to go in, mediate, increase your practices, and make art (Moon sextile Venus). A lot has been happening lately, take a day to put these experiences into some artistic manifestation that will last a lifetime.
(moOn moves into Taurus)
Practicality. Responsibility. Alignment. Karma. All of Saturn’s favorite word’s. Just before the Moon changes signs into Taurus, she will oppose Saturn–or will Saturn oppose her? The test is on our ability to hold our vision in this dimension. Are you trying to deepen your meditation practice? If so, wake to sit, and make Saturn grin. Is it to create a deeper connection to your Lover? If so, practice listening, so that empathy can awaken and Saturn gifts another grin. Whatever it is you are after, it is exam day, and its good to know the Ether’s are fertile and on your side.
(mOon in Taurus)
“… a good book is good
and that’s well understood,
but don’t even question if you know what I mean.
It’s all relative!”
People can be quite convincing. So can books, magazine, youtube videos, and your dreams or visions. Be discerning with all information today. There is seemingly a trickster amok. It’s always helpful to have a “constant,” or a axis to return to your ground state. Whether it be a mantra, an action, or a smell. Use it today, because the veils are thin, and lecherous beings could be trying to trip you up and bring you back into their dank holes.
(mOOn in Taurus)
Rebel Friday!!! Today, Uranus stations Retrograde, for a 5 month Inner journey (until Dec 11th). Oh boy…Just one day before Mercury does the same, these two mental Archetypes have a surprise waiting for us. The overall feeling of this cycle is for greater independence and clarity about who we truly are. Wondering: Who am “I.” Really? There can be lots of run ins with the cops or authority during this phase, thus generating erratic and frustrated energies within. The word for the chapter we are heading into is this: Unpredictability. Embrace it, because your plans are going to be destroyed. Become a Master of Improv. And dare to be different!
(MoOn moves into Gemini)
…”If you are possessed by laughter, thinking stops. And if you know a few moments of no-mind, those glimpses will promise you many more rewards that are going to come…”
WIth Uranus and Mercury now retrograde with a quickly ‘dying’ Gemini mOOn, it is not hard to predict the way in which these coming days will feel like: confusing, frustrating, changing, breaking, short circuiting, shutting down, insightful, redirecting, and LOST! But its all perfect. It brings us back to ourselves so we can see deeper inside our madness. We get to ask: “Why is this happening to me? “How did I create it?” And then we get to solve the problems. Laughter, truly is the only remedy for the wild manifestations that shall follow. Just say, “It’s all retro…bro,” and begin to laugh like a crazy person.
(moon in Gemini)
Twice a year, the Sun squares Saturn (a 90 degree aspect representing Crisis). The feeling: Self doubt and insecurity. Sure, with all of the energies flip flopping and turned inwards, self critique can be accentuated, but remember: Laughter. It’s great. Also, don’t forget the Leo medicines (Mercury is retro in Leo; read my blog): Play. Creation. Children. Don’t obsess on what you are not, instead, look at what you are and what you are becoming. Don’t should on me and I won’t should on you!
…Good luck with it all. I wanna see you laughing in the streets!!!
