THE WEEK AHEAD: May 6-12

[image: chandric olleroski]

It’s all quite subtle, but the intensity of the heavy background transits like those of Saturn/Pluto and Neptune/Uranus has been creepishly applying for many months (arguably years). These have now pervaded many of our conscious and unconscious processes in quite noticeably unusual ways, to be sure, at least to all you ‘woke’ pundits out there.

We may not all possess the keenly analytical faculties required to observe their subliminal effects upon us, and certainly not always. The distinct superpowers of Uranus/Neptune/Pluto/Eris are largely invisible to the untrained naked eye. Those of us who study their transiting effects know one thing about outer planet energies: they definitely find their ways of permeating even the most minuscule aspects of our everyday life. They literally hijack matters like an alien lifeform to the extent where, if we’re not tuned into them, we could become seriously troubled – especially if we are the über-sensitive victim kind, the impressionably avant-garde or the fabled empathic type.

We may become so pushed and pulled by their long-wave currents, into directions so foreign and bewildering, we often come out the other end left feeling quite confused, drained, coerced and upset by upheaval that our lives can end up in a supernatural mess. And there’s no way of averting. Blindly choosing to either play into the dramas they create for us, or fearfully withdrawing entirely (and seldom knowing why), is the less constructive way to handle things….
…But then, a little astro insight can shed some clearer light here – even upon the foggiest or darkest elements that lurk in the outer periphery of our quantum universe.

Lots going down (again) but it’s our relationships that take a direct hit this week: Venus is still transiting through the impulsive, self-centred modalities of Aries. Here, she attempts to turn on a most dashingly irascible charm, emboldened chiefly by her governance over the Sun, Mercury and Uranus, all transiting in Taurus.

Flippant and excitable, she is seen quavering in her attempts to stay grounded or measured about anything. She flirts and teases with the laws, often in wild abandon of the consequences – not just in personal affairs, but also in the business dance; generally wherever we may invest our ‘love’ interests into the material world.

This spirited, love-at-first-sight sense of attraction for all things beautiful is taken to excess, encouraged and abetted by her trine to super-connected Jupiter (the Lizard King), and by the merchandising Taurean Sun’s smoother aspects both to space-cat Neptune and Herr Stickmeister Saturn. Of course we are all looking for a way to make the most out of everything we dream, turn it into a viable reality, one that gives us some degree of accomplishment and assurity.

As Mercury makes a mind-searing conjunction to Uranus, the honest to goodness truth comes out. Venus’ squares to the Saturn/Pluto at the Capricorn South Node complex brings a harsh, sobering awareness about how forces, already rocking the foundations of our social framework are impacting our ability to find peace, love and enjoyment thanks to their insidiously heavy-handed efforts to either forcibly conserve or destroy existing power structures within all relationships.

So it’s a clash between things of intrinsic value versus superficial grabs for joy which forces events that become the prime theme for this month. If we are too quick to appraise what is ‘adding value’ and what is ‘diminishing value’ to our overall sense of worth and worthiness, snapping at surface bait, and ignoring the real treasures below, we will certainly come up against definite snags when it comes to feeling deeply satisfied.

In fact, with Saturn at the South Node till the end of this year, we could get ourselves (further) into nasty entanglements which, by the sheer force of pressure, just never allow us to see the light of day again…

wtf??

Ok. See if you can follow this: If you look a little closely at your affairs right now, you may observe that it becomes uncomfortably obvious that some things between us can no longer stand due to their incapacity to resonate with our most intrinsic heart desires. Look for repeated signs of inner frustration and doubt, grating criticism and cramping discipline even though on the surface things appear steady and peachy-keen.

Aries seeks autonomy, and Venus under this sign will choose to exercise this so irrepressibly that, against Capricorn’s patriarchic expectations for her to ‘fall into line’, she seems flippant, self-centred, even immature in her ways.

Hence with the VENUS square to SATURN/PLUTO we can safely predict some conflicts of interest over holding the integrity of our personal freedom to enjoy life. It seems the ‘powers that be’ are intent on depriving us of that for the sake of some greater, yet not entirely known agenda.

The heart-chilling effect here comes when we discover that we don’t get a choice in how the relationship is managed – that we must suck it up and suffer the sometimes monstrous demands made upon our freedom (see the fine print of your social contract). Heavens forbid should you get ideas about trying to terminate or break away from any attempts to forcibly control you.

Know any deals or relationships that are currently holding you into such heavily binding ‘contracts’?

It’s not like these suffocating elements haven’t always been around. It’s just that with Saturn (structure, control, definition) and Pluto (subversion, elimination, corruption), coming together to bring them to the surface, completing and renewing their 38-yr cycle (Jan 2020). Here, we seem to notice them rising in ways which seem increasingly imposing, extremely omnipresent, and impossibly demanding. They’re gradually sucking up more and more of our time, effort, participation and appreciation in their dark, sociopathic ways – insatiable cravings which feel almost impossible to satisfy, no matter what we throw at them.

They are a dark, invisible vortex which drags us in, but gives us no idea where it’s taking us and what’s at the other end. Sound familiar?

Just as our scientists have recently been able to provide physical, photographic evidence to support their long-standing theories and suspicions of the existence of black holes, we too are able to point out where (in our socio-economic world) are possible entities whose own gravitational field is so intense that no amount of matter or radiation can escape once it gets sucked into their dark vortex. Black holes can be a place, concept or entity into which stars, time and precious energy apparently disappears without trace.

[recent publication of a black hole, as seen by scientists]

Where do they go?
Where does all your precious love and light disappear into?

Yes, it is apparent that some entities among us are the black holes to our love and precious energy. Whether they are found in the deliciously addictive products of multinational corporations (Google, Amazon, Facebook, etc); or in ‘vital industries’ (manufacturing, energy; defense; transport, medicine, entertainment, media, etc); forms of ‘government‘ (conservative, liberal, socialist, authoritarian); churches (Catholic, Judaist, Islamic, Hindu, etc.); community (councils, institutions, co-operatives, charities, etc), or in our most personal lives (friends, families, lovers etc.), our investment into them, if not purely out of self-interest (meaning driven by external force of tradition/custom/law/social pressure/greed), then this week could amount to nothing but crises of loss and abject failure.

By the end of the week, Venus also conjuncts the diabolical Eris. Here our human desire for order and structure meets the human tendency towards chaos and mayhem. All of civilization’s peace efforts smack up against its discontents, and we see rising frictions and a great deal of general wear and tear.

Wherever there is engagement with those whose ‘modus operandi’ is akin to that of a terrestrial black hole, serious questions that formulate into value judgements about what’s going on start to arise. Are we heading towards an unstoppable force that has the potential to ruin our lives; to destroy our self-worth so completely that we can never again return to the creative universe from whence we came??

Am I being a tad dramatic here, lol??
Of course… How else does one ever make a case for something that hasn’t yet, but could quite plausibly happen?

Anyway… enough for now. If you have been questioning whether others value or respect your love, even in the slightest, then really take a breath and consider your situation this week. If their motivation is simply to exploit your generosity; exhaust our instincts to care and nurture; disintegrate your trust and faith in all human kindness; extinguish your love and light, then know this is not going to end nicely.

This artist’s impression depicts a rapidly spinning supermassive black hole surrounded by an accretion disc. This thin disc of rotating material consists of the leftovers of a Sun-like star which was ripped apart by the tidal forces of the black hole. Shocks in the colliding debris as well as heat generated in accretion led to a burst of light, resembling a supernova explosion.

In his brilliant book, “The Singularity is Near”, the freakishly prophetic tech genius Raymond Kurzweil, writes: “Death gives meaning to our lives. It gives importance and value to time. Time would become meaningless if there were too much of it.” He is talking about the world of millions of individual lights getting sucked into and becoming spaghettified by the life-eliminating forces of a singular source of artificial intelligence. It seems that life beyond the stars is just as much a mystery as the space between us… Makes you wonder whether it’s all just a very carefully constructed matrix that we dare not get our heads around before facing ultimate elimination of our light (intelligence).

This week can bring a massive deal breaker, and only those who are super conscious and have enough power and courage not to get swallowed up in the bottomless vortex of the love/light eliminator. And just what eliminates the ominous auspices of a black hole??
I’ll leave the homework up to you…

Stay present, and see you during the week!
Many Blessings xx
