As we start to see the cracks forming in the matrix of the old patriarchy, the transiting Aries Sun, recently conjunct Chiron and flanked by a soon-Hesperus (evening star) Venus, challenges us to find and speak our true intrinsic voice.
By the end of this week, the (now-Neptunified) SUN finally leaves Pisces and reaches the all-critical Aries Equinox. In the remaining days, the hypersensitised ego has all but fully dissolved, exposing nothing but a refined soul who is ready to be incarnated into its new, 2021 form.
Those who are still intent to keep things the same are suffering enormously weakening tensions from all sides, and like a slowly capsizing ship, besieged by cruel waves and multifarious leaks throughout its hull, this world is desperately in need of an "all hands on deck" effort in order to repair and restore itself.
Our task during 'the human experience' is to rise beyond the petty squabbles that divide us in this grim, lower illusion of limitation and scarcity, to transcend from the world of suffering and fear by using all the knowledge and insight afforded to us by the heavens.
What continues to ensue over the next few days are conflicts which, due to either the reckless embrace or fear of change, threaten to shake our entire value system within ourselves, in our relationships with one another, and in the world at large.
If ever there was a time when the world needed a new hope, some glimmer of positive inspiration that things might start to take a turn for the better, that there is light despite all of the darkness and confusion that currently enshrouds this earth, it would be now.
So, our Sun continues his epic hero's journey through Aquarius. There will be many twists and turns along his luminous path through February, one which will see many revolutionary changes and reforms take place, both within and all around.
...in the prelude to the Leo Full Moon (Jan 28), we will see several planets come to lock horns through a series of challenging dynamic aspects to one another in the early degrees of fixed signs.
It's now December and the icy, Aquarian winds of change are already upon us. Whilst much of humanity seems prepped for the big transition, falling diligently into the Capricornian line, the sheer force of how dramatically our collective consciousness has altered over the past 12 months as Jupiter and Saturn danced with Pluto has left many of us reeling...
After an intense and strange kind of month, where everything just kept getting so gunky and uncertain, you would think that she Sadge Sun might deliver some relief and the good news we've been longing for. You might think...
After a two-month period of being routed back to the mid-degrees of Aries, Mars is now finally direct again, hedging his efforts into staging a 'come-back'. That's right, the impish god of action and punch-ons is picking up some pace again, but it won't be until the end of this year (22-23 Dec) that he finally takes charge, urging us to do the things we probably should have done a while ago. Will it be too late? With Neptune squaring the Nodes, we cannot turn back the tides of change.
Well, the US election came but, as it appears, is not exactly gone. As the harshly critical Saturn/Pluto conjunction now prepares to be joined by the judicious Jupiter, the level of fanaticism around the deconstruction of our systems of governance, law, religiosity and moral certitude is only increasing.
Yes, things are messy with no visible sign that order and balance will be restored any time soon. But then, this is apparently what we all want since nobody is really able to agree with anyone on anything right now. This is what the storm is about...
Something enormous is occurring that in the next 12 months will recalibrate all matter into a higher form of being and interconnectedness (or eliminate it completely).
As above, so below they say. Well, if our heavenly players above are putting on quite an ambitious performance, one can imagine how that's all playing out in your life...
As the month of September draws to a close, we are somehow better-equipped with the necessary discretionary skills and acumen to make fairer judgements in the weeks ahead. This October will be a critical month.
In the final days of September 2020, the Virgo Sun will reach the Equinox, inaugurating into Libra (Tuesday). This crossing marks a highly significant shift in the Solar cycle, heralding a change in the direction of the Sun's rays falling on Earth. Here, at the sacred turning point, we are called to open our eyes and ears to others as they all become equally significant.
Nobody can deny that our world is going a little 'nuts' these days. Our 'informed' societies have slowly descended into such a state of absurdity and cognitive disorder that it now seems an impossible task to both ignore or bring things back into some semblance of the cohesive sensibility we used to know and love. Who can predict which way things will turn out when so much of what we hear seems distorted by our own inability to see things clearly?
Virgo acts as the perfect filter through which humanity can examine its deeds, provides the Sun with a keen lens by which to scrutinise errors that need to be addressed and rectified. The mutable waveforms produced through this earthy perspex of the pure sunlight allows us to discern what's beneficial and to neatly organise and purify it so it serves its rightful purpose, as needed.
This week is most significant in that Jupiter and Saturn form another exact midpoint to Pluto - a picture which is not only potent in its capacity to overturn entire fortunes, but as Mars squares this point on Tue/Wed, he introduces extra duress and irritation into the game, as if to force drastic reaction to his individual ends
Believe it or not, you too are part of the hell and fury of these times, and whether you join the brigades that are currently mustering toward a higher (or lower) plane, you will become a part of the historical transformation that is taking place on planet earth.
With both the Cancer Moon and opposing Saturn dignified in this 180° standoff, life proffers us the uncomfortable prospect of feelings vs duty and obligation, viewed as rather a serious business in which 'doing the right thing' becomes tantamount, even if this means ignoring our instincts and emotions... or so it may seem.

If nothing else, last week's Lunar Eclipse has distinguished just how trapped and dissonant our private, inner-child experiences have become from everything being drummed into us by the grown-up world of social, religious, academic and political influence and indoctrination.
We are heading into another very intense week of life-altering activity. As much as we might like to keep a smiley face on our mask, we are best reminded that underneath it all, things aren't so rosy at all during this intense period of the reconstruction.
This is a most important week, with multiple conjunctions launching us into myriad new roads. Meawhile, a daunting Capricorn lunation stands to tear us apart over the nitty gritty issues of personal, family and social duties.
This is shaping up to be quite a year. In the wake of the shadow cast on this earth by arguably the most potent North Node eclipse of our times, we are ready to emerge anew.
There is no way to separate what's true and what's not among those who are easily lead, and the choice to turn off rather than to try to listen to all sides becomes a major hurdle. It is a perplexing conundrum, and this week challenges us at the core of our existence - our sense of safety and security.
Following last week's potent and ideologically divisive Lunar Eclipse, we find ourselves sinking deeper into a strange, impossible-to-follow vortex of dissolution and dissociation from any semblance of reality.
Can you feel that we are in eclipse season? Yes, June promises to be a tumultuous month...
It's the end of May, and with several planets stationing to retrograde recently, it seems that much in our lives is currently at a standstill as we prepare to revisit the new old ground.
In a world crippled by chaotic currents, the duality of vastly increased access to data and information in a relatively data-illiterate population, one which lacks both the sophistication and statistical training to understand how to properly use that data to draw conclusions, creates even further turbulence and confusion...
These are phenomenal 'times of change', and the necessary regeneration begins to takes a heavy toll upon the organism's otherwise indomitable human spirit.
As the North Node pulls into its final, critical degree of Cancer, you may feel the need for homecoming in your heart; a strong pull towards family connections, your sentimental nature and to be closely in touch with the richness of your emotions.
During periods of great stress, anxiety, loneliness, and alienation, our health is most prone to suffer from the anxiety-related disorders which we attribute to the effects of social isolation or social-distancing itself. It can be a time when we are forced to assess and re-balance our lives accordingly.
