Wednesday, 16 January

Not the best day to expect opportunities and rewards to roll in, especially if you’re the ambitious, power-hungry kind. Obstacles may be hurled in your path, making it difficult to express your authority, achieve your desire, reap the fruits of your labour.

With the Sun at the South Node,there’s only one road to success:

Drop rigid attitudes one by one. Learn how to divorce yourself from the insatiable urge to manage everyone and everything around you – find comfort and security only in relating your emotions more honestly.

If you can learn how to apologise sincerely when you are wrong, not to exploit or take advantage of others when you’re right, you may eventually see that all of your fears & anxieties, cynicism & depression, threats & emergencies are nothing more than part of a self-propelled martyr complex which, in truth, bears little relevance to current life circumstances.

Shake this hardball shit out – it doesn’t suit you, it’s clearly outdated and besides, there’s a lot more going for you if you just turn around and go back to being kind.

SUN ON THE PLUTO/NODE: ☉- ♇/☋ | ☿ ∗ ♆ | ☿ ☌ ♇

Most caring and conscientious people cannot stand to see anyone suffer. Since most humans are naturally wired to be kind to others, the manipulator often finds it easy to play on their sympathy to get their cooperation to fulfil his personal needs.

It’s common with narcissistic types, who are generally consumed with presenting a shallow false self to others. This is because deep down they are deeply damaged, emotionally fractured souls who are addicted to sucking the life-force out of others to offset ever dealing with their own pain.

Because of this, they play a multitude of mind games in order to feed their insatiable needs. Sadly, this is the most pathologically frightful state of existence – to be overcome into ruthless behaviour which shows no mercy, no remorse for one’s actions; to make no effort to make amends or have empathy for those they hurt.

People who engage in ‘gaslighting’, or mind-manipulation, are the most spiritually corrupted, most morally bankrupt individuals and it’s sadly the case that little or nothing can be done to help them heal other than to leave them alone. Cut off all ties, investments and sponsorships to their cause. Stave off the energy supply of human kindness on which they sorely need. Let them stew in the bitter bile of destructiveness, the vacuum of their heartlessness until they suffocate to death (or do the unthinkable and change their ways).

FIRST QUARTER MOON REPORT: Mon Jan 14 2019, 06:46 UTC | ☽ 23°48′ □ ☉ 23°48′ | ♃ □ ♆ | ☿ ☌ ♄

Here’s the thing: You may be capable of spinning great yarns about what you are going to do, all the great art you’re going to create, the passionate love you’re going to make, the truths you’re going to reveal, even some of the ways you’re going to change this world to make it a better place for all… and truth be told, I could listen to you all day because you’re so damned compelling…

But hey – T.I.M.E…. Time just reveals that what you say and what you actually do is actually… nothing, except maybe just dream.

Even, on those rare occasions where you might ground one of your fancy ideas or intentions, they seems riddled with practical flaws, submerged in a pool of faulty logic and muddy reasoning, which only erodes any firm basis for them to stand, makes them so impossible to conceive of ever being brought to completion.

Ever heard of a ‘budget’?

Look, I don’t want to piss on your inspirations by trying to cruelly drag you out of bed before noon, nor do I want to alienate you by hitting you with nasty ‘facts’…just concerns me to see you lost in the mire of cloudy misgivings, incapable of seeing through those hazy mists and inner fogs that stand between you and the world out here.

Why don’t you start by becoming more aware of your surreally optimistic dream patterns, see how they take a hold over you. Consider the practical necessities and consequences that may occur, try to foresee the point where things might fall apart.

Change that shit. Put more thought into building the dream, write down a plan ffs… set alarms and little reminders in your calendar, tick off things on the list as ‘done’ only after some serious evaluation, put some serious discipline and effort into making your intentions stick.

By slowing down a little, applying some focus to what you want to do and stick to it until you get the desired result, you might just manage to transform this frustrating fantasy world into a dream-come-true.

MERCURY’s conjunction to SATURN @12°51′ (Sunday Jan 13)

Of course, with all the absurdity and magical, reality-defying doo-da flying about at the moment, you might feel like you’re at a loss for words.

Don’t be.

Sometimes it’s important to speak up; say something.
Times like this command us to stand up and convey what’s on our mind, make our position clear.

Worst thing to have to live with later is regret – which is effectively not having acted on your intuition.

Say it, don’t delay it.

Meet Pluto: ☉ ☌ ♇

Dark, charismatic, sexy, powers and wealth beyond description…

One thing… he kinda has a problem: One which he likes to keep damned secret. And should you (or anyone) try to get too close with their light, he’s liable to totally fuck you up.

So how do you play with such a sport?

JUPITER square NEPTUNE (Sunday, Jan 13 2019, then June-Sep 2019)

[art: jati putra pratama]
The potent dreamworld we’ve created in our lives becomes both the source of our highest potential and the cause of our greatest discontent.

Strong push from each of these energies to have their way – JUPITER’s excess and NEPTUNE’s escapism – means that they won’t allow us to manifest our vision unless we earnestly and humbly believe it can be true. Since we are filled with a sense of spiritual hubris, practical apathy and a confused ambivalence about everything, our dreams remain just dreams, a delusory world to which we can escape (through fantasies, drugs, perfunctory spiritual practices, wishful thinking, etc) – a veritable vortex of hypocrisy into which we invest (waste) a lot of energy trying to maintain.

Dreaming is addictive; our lives are in danger of floating down the river of unrealised potential. A sudden breakthrough is needed. And it will come, regardless of whether you are ready…

2019: The Year in Preview – An Astrological Synopsis

Tuesday, 8 January

The Capricorn Eclipse (Sun/Moon conjunction) has brought quite a lot of pressure upon us to crystallize our intent, to make a serious transformation in our being. Serious changes are necessary if we are ourselves to be taken seriously. And we want to be taken seriously if we are to have any real effect here, right? Otherwise our whole purpose can just waft off into a phony-ass jam, a lame attempt, a fanciful delusion, a massive con-job, a hoax… basically a big joke, yeah??

The universe is watching us.
It knows if we’re being true.

The Sun (conscious thought) may be hundreds of times bigger than our Moon (emotions), but from where we stand (earth) the two appear equal in size. We learn this from eclipses, as we witness the Moon’s capacity to perfectly superimpose herself over the Sun. We learn too that feelings count just as much as thoughts, and when the two come together like this, as one, we see how all things are capable when we put our hearts and minds to it.

Under such heavy forces, we see how we can accomplish extraordinary acts of transformation, but how we can also commit great acts of destruction if we put our heart and soul into whatever we believe. Examples are everywhere, and they are here to serve as guides…

Being alive today is serious business, and when we marry thought with emotion we can accomplish some pretty powerful stuff.
But how?

We need to be certain of what we need.
We need to be sure of what it is we want to manifest here in our world, our physical earth, our embodied self.
When we set our minds into coherence with what our emotions are telling us, we create the perfect alignment to manifest our intention here on this earth, in this life.
If it’s big change you want; massive transformations you desire to see, then you shall have those – if you are for real.
But only if you are for real. Current energies in the collective field aren’t in much “mood” for your bullshitting around. Like a run-in with father, you will get a stern warning if your life is amok and filled with whimsical nonsense. You will be whacked, hard, so watch it.

It’s time to to cut the crap, be for real with what you’re here to do and just eff’n’do it. There’s no way out of stepping out of stepping up to our responsibilities. We are here, heart and mind… body and soul, our struggle is real, so let’s not think there’s any cheap & easy way out. Seems like we’re all grounded here for a while, so best let’s work it out… if we want to leave a serious impression on this planet.

Let us connect now with the collective field of this ‘divine oneness’ and align our own mission with the universe’s greater intent on why we’re here right now:

….read this again, and let’s go over our intention one more time, making sure it’s clear and in coherence with where we want to be……..

Partial SOLAR ECLIPSE at 15°25′ CAPRICORN: Sunday, January 6 2019, 01:29 UTC

Saturn crystallises things. Makes them tangibly real. Touchably hard, so they matter. Maybe what you get is not what you think you wanted at the time, but that’s just it… it’s only a matter of time. When you look back at your journey, you always dig how you got exactly what was coming to you, just as you had “deserved” it.

In time, every experience counts because it served to define your character. The universe is good like that. Dishes out your destiny, just right.

When Pluto’s also in the mix, distressing rain becomes a wonderful avalanche of shimmering diamonds. Storms are transformed into a flood of sparkling crystal pearls. The applied force can transform rain into a multitude of glittering prisms. The harsh, psychological pressure of Saturn/Pluto, aided by the boundless illusion of Neptune, infuses this lunation with a profound uprising emotion, one that can change any ordinary incident into a radiant, luminous voyage.

The great metamorphosis is just around the corner…

Who are you to me any more?

We seem to have become fractured, desynchronised in our relationships. No wonder we feel oppressed. It’s as if we are on the same train, yet no longer moving in the same direction or at the same pace.

How on earth are we supposed to evolve together when our thinking has become so incongruent, our motivation so disparate?

Not a good mediator.
It creates this illusion to be a perfectly reliable friend. However, it has invaded our minds, interfered with contact to our spirit guides. We’ve been misguided, connecting to false friends. In the end, it’s caused nothing but this ghostly sense of isolation and despair, dividing rather than uniting us.

I’m sorry, in no mood to argue.
I’m not up for this phoney fight.
I came here to connect to love.
I want roses.

Where do I step off?

[art:Stefano Lista]

It was the end of things.
Everyone disturbed.
No meaning. Now reason;
Holy, good, inviolable, divine;
for whom those supernatural beings
naturally accept as their own sacrosanctum standards,
signify only a danger, decay, debasement, or at least retreat; corruption, and a certain self-oblivion;
O, dark moon goddess, toy with my superhuman strength and my benevolence, make me appear inhuman, inhumane –
so when your dark of light confronts my earthly seriousness such grave solemnity in gesture did I scowl
Such heavy word, such grievous tone,
most mournful eye, morality, and task
How could this be – and in spite it all,
it’s only in the darkest hour of your night
that the great seriousness really begins,
and as the sun dawns, the real question is posed for the first time, as though the destiny of my soul has changed,
as the clock hand shuttles forward,
the real tragedy begins….

Moon/Jupiter square Neptune

[art: william blake]
In among the delays & frustrations of everyday life; the second-guessing and the tortuous mechanics of the critical mind trying to connect the dots, is the wafting sense of wanting to suspend all disbelief and just escape this reality.

Despite the mounting pressure to look at the grim side of things, people aren’t interested in seeing such truth. They’re only interested in what keeps them safe and secure. They’re interested in being held and looked after. They’re interested in a magical story where unicorns leap over rainbows and life has limitless options, even in the face of adversity….

Sure… in the face of truth, even the greatest of us may suffer moments of deep despair. In the analysis of the reality, we entertain things that simple, god-fearing folks simply do not wish to know about, for they live in hope and prayer… of maybe falling in love with a prince, winning the lottery, or a great messiah leading them to a promised exodus…

Though the chances of that are infinitesimal, ‘hope’ is not necessarily a falsehood. It can be a powerful force which not only supports, but drives our creativity. Otherwise, how could words like ‘false’ and ‘hope’ ever be forced into such an unconscious coupling?

However implausible, our hopes cannot be false. Nor have they ever been… In the quantum field, hopes (and prayers) are a vital part of the oft forgotten feminine counterpart to our creative process.

Ok, the “Happy NY” sentiments were good while they lasted, but now it’s time to accept that ‘success and happiness’ these days is going to have to come with some hard-earned lessons.Nothing severe happens for no reason. Best look into it. See what it’s trying to say to you without your ego taking offence. If you react negatively to setbacks or frustrations and become bitter it not only affects your confidence, but you fail to learn, setting yourself up for more of the same.

You are the casting agent for the interactive games going on around you. You will play into all kinds of drama, but in essence, both hero and antagonist reside within you. One acts to the script of creativity and compassion, while the other by the script of karma and hard knocks.

It’s inevitable that from time to time you’re going to experience either or both, but on this day you may have mixed feeling about which is which. Maybe the hero is the villain. Or could be the other way around.

However you look at it, it is your actions that will determine whom you embrace.
