THE WEEK AHEAD: May 13-19

The underlying social pressure, hosted by the current Saturn/Pluto conjunction, attempts to suck all the emotion out of the earth. This emotional deadness builds to climactic levels this week as we struggle to better understand how the slow, dark forces hovering over our entire planet have the power to transform the mundane direction of our daily lives. All of humanity now seems strangely enmeshed into a deeply transformative collective fate, and though many may still not possess the faculty to visibly observe the greater impact of these heavy, ominous planets, somehow everyone is involved.

Even the otherwise favourable Sun/Mercury aspects to this dynamic are mitigated by the negative pull of the Capricorn South Node. Despite repeated personal & global warnings, our tendency is still to become blindly absorbed into ambitious Capricorn-type pursuits. Whether it’s our part in the unstoppable ambitions of Corporation and State for supreme control, or the fiasco for fame and celebrity happening in the reality-TV world of the Twittersphere, every day of willful ignorance to the evolutionary potentials of the Cancer North Node means another missed opportunity to choose nature over money, emotions over power, new growth over trying to revive dead wood, etc.

Hence, no matter how safe and securing the old structure seems, we risk becoming further stuck in a dry, emotionally unrewarding rut that just refuses to end….

Besides, regardless of how pleasant the rut we’re in is, it only exacerbates our chances of adjusting to impending future changes. We may wake up one day only to wonder just how we let things slide so much that it feels we are left feckless in a world that seems like it has suddenly transformed right underneath our feet.

For the most part, even those who are supremely self-assured, experienced and reliably consistent could feel as though they lack the confidence or capability to take on forces which they see as much greater than themselves. Pluto ensures that much of what goes on in development of great changes remains hidden to the average individual. His design to have his way is so consumingly thorough that he stops at nothing in his way.

In his conjunction to Saturn, Pluto has mesmerised the mainstream masses to become extremely divided, each somehow indoctrinated to roll on with his agenda to transform the entire face of structured society.

Whether it is by applying gripping measures through government or institutions, the cumulative effect is such that we all feel (but not necessarily see) the march of total control creeping into our infrastructure, and here the staid and earthy Taurus Sun may be somehow persuaded to invest some of his prized properties in exchange for a share in the ultimate ‘pie in the sky’. It becomes a real dilemma, and though Taurus generally knows where to put his money, his moral conscience must determine whether his support is best driven by personal interests or by concerns over the state’s interest in controlling his assets unless he complies.

It is the Scorpio Full Moon (Saturday) who will reveal to him that he lives in an emotional world, one filled with much trauma and anguish, where those who do not have a voice of their own either silently lend their support to something that represents them, or else suffer the symptoms and aspersions of feeling left out. Struggling to find the means to survive as an outsider means often being subjected to the by-effects of others’ greed, and the control manias of cruelty and abuse. As always with this particular lunation, there is a deep inner need to evaluate how much we will forego our own relative comfort and assurance and try to bring it into balance with that of those who need much more than just our economic support.

As Venus moves into Taurus to conjunct Uranus and Mars into Cancer, relations shift towards finding a new, mutually beneficial way to free those who feel imprisoned by the trappings of their own human frailties. As much as we may wish to see them shine in their best light, we must watch that we don’t threaten others’ opinion of themselves by only drawing attention to their failings and where they let us down.

Communication is the key here. Mercury’s trine to the Saturn/Pluto/South Node means finding the strength to work through matters that are heavy and somewhat depressing, allowing discourse and discussion to occur, rather than focusing on building the Great Wall of China around ourselves and our apparent differences. Reacting stubbornly to the slightest personal criticism, we only add more bricks to the wall, eventually shunning out the necessary light with which to construct any glimmer of a possible future.

As Neptune also forms a trine to the North Node, we must come to know in our hearts the importance of staying open-minded to the rich spiritual diversity in others, entertaining all options for peace and empathetically tuning into the quantum possibilities of what might happen if we could all just put our differences aside, work together more harmoniously.

Those who argue that such dreams are stuff of fairy tales and nonsense because they could not ever see them happen, who try to exploit the naivety of others, or who are stuck in some self-centred delusive fantasy all of their own, might easily find themselves waking up feeling quite lost, lonely and afraid this week.

There’s enough earth planets to bring everything to ground, help us realise the kind of dream that includes everyone, not just a few. It takes a lot of courage and imagination to approach both our own and the world’s current problems with such heightened idealism. Yet, choosing to view our situation as one of limited or singular outcomes means that we neither adequately understand how this universe works, not do we understand the true nature of our problem.

This week presents us with an intensely existential dilemma which demands a solution. Whilst on the surface it seem plainly simple, its roots are immersed in generations of deeply buried emotional pain. A single, seemingly superficial issue could dredge up a lot of past matter which, whilst largely subconscious, could trigger all kinds of crises. As usual, Full Moons present us with a wonderful opportunity to see matters with greatest awareness. More than any other, the Scorpio Moon is highly volatile and the Taurus Sun, like his ruler Venus, is charged with immense levels of Uranian resistance.

It behooves us now to take an unprecedented approach to the same old problems around issues like ‘having’ and ‘missing out’. We need to understand that Uranus is a force that blows a shrill whistle on everything that fails to keep up with the ‘now’. Either you are awake enough to see what insights and disruptions he is about to unleash upon us, or don’t be surprised if, in your slumber, you are taken by surprise.

Blessings, and have an amazing week xx
