It is a whole different reality that dawns upon us this week, my friends. It will soon be time to cease talking about the discombobulating effects of the Saturn/Neptune squares on our perceived consciousness – all the disappointment, disillusionment, the heartaches of broken dreams, the deep sighs of depression and all that…
Soon… very soon, the last 12 months will seem like a drowsy awakening from a dream from which one just did not want to get out of bed. The snooze button on the alarm had already been hit three times, and soon, those still reluctant to leave the snuggly warm bed and greet the new day should expect a rousingly ice-cold bucket of “wake-the-fuck-up”.

In last week’s forecast, we spoke at length about how certain hidden truths would somehow surface into consciousness (☉□ ♇), testing our efforts to create an idyllic sense peace and harmony in our world by exposing us to the forces of corruption. It was an intensely emotional time, especially with so much feminine activity (☽/♀/Juno/Lilith) in Scorpio had been brewing mid-week. Did you feel it? The message from the stars was to go with our feelings, to trust our most faithful guiding system – the salient, yet oft-ignored inner voice. It is dawning on us that deep within there is a key to help to us access our ability to address any repressed emotions when this fusion of goddess energies trines Chiron this week.
By the end of this last week, the intense inner process that had taken place would serve to compound all our inner notions that we have been misled, only validating and confirming our deepest dreads about everything we knew to be true, but felt unable, intimidated or disempowered to confront. Whilst to many this may have brought an intense realignment with our shadow nature, it was also essential for ego pressures to build to such a point where we could no longer defend or deny any hidden forces that may have been limiting or suppressing us. Certain invisible bonds and agreements to the masculine had to be broken or eradicated so that the Spirit Light could shine through.
All this sets the scenario for this week, and the events about to unfold. I hope you are clear.
This week begins with an extraordinary burst of mental activity (☿☌ ♃), a big need to talk big, to synthesise thoughts and ideas into broader discussion in attempt to make a case for moral justice, civilised debate and integration of facts into truths to try to reinforce an argument for law and order. Much will come out, be unearthed, especially by the raging feminine(∠♀♏), and information will be collected and coordinated in such ways that will aim to restore peace. However, this is not going to be without tension and a fair degree of discomfort, so be warned. Certain news is not going to be easy to take. Mercury in Libra, now all pumped up and loaded with high moral purpose to restore any imbalances heads squarely towards the ruthlessly defensive ♂/ ♇♑ by the end of the week (Saturday 15).
An intense level aggression that may even be overpowering can also lead us to say things that are extremely offensive at this time. This can sometimes push things so far that it provides a much needed breakthrough to occur. Beware not to overstrain as this will could develop into a mental breakdown. As much as one gets the feeling that they are armed with all the intelligence to have the final word in any argument we must be mindful that where there is an avalanche of Mars/Pluto energy there is also the propensity to go to any lengths to make one’s point, regardless of ‘right or wrong’.
The week winds up with a spectacular finale. The Full Moon in Aries – 23°♈14 (Sunday) is in tight conjunction to Uranus and Eris. Again, this is a profoundly phenomenal augury that much is not well in the balance between the genders, and this is a rare, and perhaps ground-shakingly provocative lunation that merits much dissertation and discussion. I will endeavour to open up about this during the week in my Full Moon article.
To compose the energetic scenario created by these critical transits for this week, one must look at the rising force that we have been following in our commentary over the past few months. Yes, things are coming to a head now. The feminine forces in Scorpio – the intensely passionate maiden (♀♏), the scorned housewife (Juno♏) and the sexually oppressed inner bitch (Lilith♏) – qualities that reside within all of us, both men and women are rising up to create great change now. This is a time when all elements of obscured or wanton abuse, control – any expression that has been suppressed, shamed, tamed or severely judged or manipulated is starting to come to the fore and reach a point of critical mass.
THESE are the true times of real revolution between the masculine and feminine aspects of our being. We are about to engage in a radical form of ego transcendence which, when it erupts in our exterior 3D world, aims to cut away at whatever has been extraneous, or indulgent. The goddess force of Eris is especially hard on arrogance. Any behaviour that makes us believe that we are prematurely outside or above the law will bring us to testify and pay account. The fierce emergence of goddess forces enrapturing the earth now are raising serious question to whether we have truly earned the wisdom and the legitimacy to finally set aside society’s rules in the pursuit of higher values.
What we will begin to see in this week’s unique combination of stellar energies is nature’s ruthless insistence to melt us to the bone, down to our core essence, down to the apparent nothingness which, only in itself alone, can reveal our true vastness.
Out of this, our true creativity will arise. It is not enough to boast or brag, to use fancy words or even back ourselves with scholarly university diplomas and embellished CV’s. It is not enough to be politically correct, or to pay lip service to the eloquent idea that in our essence we are “spiritual beings undergoing a human experience”. We hear these lofty platitudes in the spiritually community all the time, as much as we are sick of hearing poets, priests and politicians rattle on and on about the ‘promise’ of happiness. The time now is to actually realise this – to actually be it. This demands that we step forward audaciously into our self-greatness and love, and be willing to look deep into and surrender our own darkness, our shadowy motives, our built-in conditions and contracts, and our obscene tendency to identify with the false self.
