☽ □ □ ♄ □ Ch | ☉/☿ ⊼ ♆ | ⊼ ♅
It’s the weirdest of feelings. You want something, but you don’t know what it is that you want. Is it security but also independence or is it freedom within familiarity? Perhaps you don’t want what you know and want what you don’t know.
There may be a certain ambivalence, a certain passion yet hostility at the same time. There may even be no desire or response at all, which could well be the worst because it means you may just not care at all…
You look around and notice that, in truth, you’re only running back and forth forever between morbid grief and elevated delight.
All of these mixed emotions are part of what we call human conditioning seeking spirituality. These are the valleying dips and pinnacled heights, as well as the oft-overlooked joys sometimes found among the midlands of mundania.
This moment is just for you: If you are looking for hatred on atheists, religionists, nationalists or liberalists, locals or foreigners, or simply looking for reasons to validate yourself by extrapolating your worth against the value of others, then no wonder you’ll not find peace or happiness.

VENUS ENTERING LIBRA 0 ☿/♃/Ch/♄ | ⊼ ♅ | △
Whether you think the world is at an end or just agree that we are no longer living in that ‘old’ world any more, one thing’s for certain: This recent inurement to stress has been wearing down the body so much that it could severely limit our ability to repair and move into healthy habits, depleting our vitality and our resilience to the ‘nasties’.
If our resilience – our general flexibility and adaptability to change is based on keeping efficient energy management, then it’s no wonder that you may be feeling completely drained, out of sorts, perhaps even sick under the influence of chronic stress during these intense planetary transits.
Of course, it’s not ‘the planets’ per se – it is the choices you make that are attracting the stress in your life. The astrology is only an indicator of where the tension lies and how tightly you’re adhered to it (through force of habit).
The more addicted we get to these states of stress, the less likely we are to open our hearts, go within, and consciously do something about restoring some balance in our lives. Harmonious relationships and a general state of peace around others are at stake here.
This week, VENUS shifts out of Virgo and into LIBRA. The heart’s magnetic forces will be immediately met with several energetic challenges. It is time to stop worrying and start making restorative choices.
Helpful information will come into your world when it is equal to or relevant to the emotions you are experiencing. You can’t prepare your body for a new destiny if you’re still making choices based on old information, or trading on an old, expired currency.
Have a look at the way you are dealing with this world. It makes sense that the more you live addicted to stressful heartwaves, those still generated by the toxic remnants of your old life, the less likely you are going to want to create, meditate, open your heart and become vulnerable to something wonderful and new.

MERCURY QUINCUNX PLUTO (w/Quarter MOON opp JUPITER)
When the egotistical mind is pressured to accept information that it feels is beyond its ‘normal’ capacity to comprehend, it may struggle and toil with the facts. Eventually it seeks to find logical explanations against it. This is a natural human tendency – to lean more weight towards any evidence that supports what we already believe and to ignore evidence that contradicts our cherished beliefs.
This is how conspiracy theories are born…
Nobody going to force us to believe something that doesn’t align with our preciously held views of reality, right? That would just be wrong! And it just don’t sit well with us. Especially since the real-world evidence being presented seems so intrinsically complex or doesn’t seem to add up with what we consider to be probable. Our mind sees any external pressure to accept any account which is filled with inconsistencies or gaps as implausible. It then goes digging for clues, or at least to find others who may support or feed into our confirmation biases.
What we often see with conspiracy theorists is that they tend to ‘project’ their own forceful or intrusive behaviour onto others. They are more inclined to engage in gossip, rumours, or distorting of facts for personal gain… it gives them a certain power to ‘know stuff’ – juicy stuff that you don’t. And they get a little kick out of seeing others get all stirred into the argument, either by rejection, confusion or conversion to their theories.
Of course, some conspiracies are just that sometimes. ‘Watergate’ was exposed because all the facts did indeed stack up on investigation. But that’s a whole different matter, and seriously NOT a theory.
Saturday, 4 August
Believe it or not, there is a serious war looming between us here, on planet earth. It is not enough that rigid minds can never agree. When presidents, priests, world leaders, bosses, parents preach division, hate and violence… even ever so slightly, then violence and war between us is inevitable.
The seeds of corruption have long been sown.
The threads of pestilence and fear are sewn into the fabric of our distorted ‘urge to survive’. We are the children of shock, betrayal and trauma. We are easily triggered under extreme stress, strain, heat.
The pressure is upon us now.
We must be strong. We must not cower or squirm against the fires of toxic hatred. Let us fight this war valiantly… courageously. Rather than silence, let us raise our voice. Rather than darkness, let us shine our light. Rather than anguish, desperation grief and despair, let us offer hope.

COSMIC TRIBE: LAST QUARTER MOON UPDATE
Thursday, 2 August
Up in the night sky, MARS is now about as bright as you’re going to see him (check it out – it’s the red one).
An unremitting force which has the power to rapidly escalate things into a brawl of some sort, dragging you into automatic defence, firstly by inflaming you into whichever fight mode you habitually like to swashbuckle into. Then it sends you through that familiar sparring routine which can be physical or mental or emotional. Finally, when it’s all over, you get this little reward – a choice of how your brain is going to remember how you fared in all this, like a souvenir or trophy (or a bruising).
Test is… before you get ‘triggered’ this time, can you remember how the whole process played out for you just last time, maybe choose to go another way?

This Blood Moon Eclipse has brought up a lot of stressful matters which will not just go away on their own. They must be dealt with, and yet… this requires action.
