CLARIFICATIONS OF REASON

Forecast for Friday, February 26th
Leo/Virgo Gibbous Moon


ॐOracular Mantra—when the only way around anything is through, through becomes a bit more complicated, and thereby a bit more individualized…

Things, beliefs, and ideas alike exist notoriously, whether they make sense, or very easily do not: like the bible, or chapstick… nevertheless, folks cling to them without any logical reasoning to speak of.

Magical thinking is everywhere.

Comedian Mike Birbiglia has several comedy specials to stream at your leisure, all of which are impeccably and sentimentally hilarious… and throughout all of these Birbiglia speaks of his wife Jen, whom he eventually, and naturally, refers to as Flo.

In one of his first specials, “My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend”, he introduces you to Jen—the woman he’d been dating at the time, who is now his wife—that they argue and debate endlessly, and that Jen settles, and is perfectly satisfied, by ending any argument with the statement: that’s just how I feel.

❝I used to think I was a little unstable, and then I met every girl I’ve ever dated.❞
——Mike Birbiglia

Birbiglia expresses his frustration with this testamentary truth… claiming that it’s irrational and based in emotionality—and perhaps his argument is based on logic, and perhaps this reasons much airy rationality, and perhaps this is all around and sideways quite commonsensical… and perhaps this is the true and climactic paradox within the Aquarian essence?

The honest, and authentic—however irrational and obtuse—clarification of reason.

Sometimes personal accountability claims no accountability… it’s like the magically presumptuous causal link between one’s inner, personal experience and the external physical world.

But sometimes, this is what we’re working with.

❝What you create in a 30-seat, hole-in-the-wall improv theater in Phoenix can be far more meaningful than a mediocre sitcom being half-watched by seven million people. America doesn’t need more stuff. We need more great stuff. You could make that.❞
——Mike Birbiglia

It might help you, today, to further support your efforts, to clarify your intentions, your reasons, your arguments, and your motivations.

Because these are the things of eventual manifestations…

It might be both your duty, and a duty done in your favor, today, to state, much like Jen, that whatever your intentions, reasons, arguments, or motivations are—that these testimonial truths, however momentary, are just how you feel… and see where this takes you—especially if this strategy isn’t the way you would typically navigate the matter.

And regardless of the rationality of this, you will be clarifying your reasoning, so that anyone within a differing context or even the same conversation with you will know why you stand where you do, and that one can never argue with a feeling… and this is logically understood.

❝A joke without comedic timing is a statement of pure insanity.❞
——Mike Birbiglia

CELEBRATING LIFE ITSELF

Forecast for Thursday, February 25th
Leo Gibbous Moon; Part 2


ॐOracular Mantra—here comes the sun…

Are you feeling it?!—a little smidge of ease?

The major celestial goings-on today are Venus moving in to Piscean waters, which always offers a bit of release and calm…
but also, more directly, a lunarly opposition to Jupiter, through a degree which associates itself with a “surge of life and love after a major crisis…”

I think ‘crisis’ is a bit much, and largely overused and ridiculously misused in popular vernacular… though I think we could mostly agree to agree that there’s been a bit of transformative upheaval and disruption in the air.

The title of this degree reads: the storm ended, all nature rejoices in brilliant sunshine… this is a degree of release, for ‘light and life singing in the cleansed and refreshed mind, flooded for a while by the waters of feeling…’ there is an obvious ‘joy, and power of new beginnings’.

Definitely not a day for woes, or ‘poor me’ mindsets, as this is the mentality of mediocrity… and today is a day to celebrate Life itself, boldly, without apology.

❝When we fully understand the brevity of life, its fleeting joys and unavoidable pains; when we accept the facts that all men and women are approaching an inevitable doom: the consciousness of it should make us more kindly and considerate of each other. This feeling should make men and women use their best efforts to help their fellow travelers on the road, to make the path brighter and easier as we journey on… it should bring a closer kinship, a better understanding, and a deeper sympathy for the wayfarers who must live a common life and die a common death.❞

WAKING FROM COMPLACENCY

Forecast for Wednesday, February 24th
Leo Gibbous Moon


ॐOracular Mantra—so, you say you want a revolution, well, you know, we all want to change the world…

Renewed, revived, and appropriately restored—these may be your sentiments toward your energy levels today, especially in regard to what they have recently been…

The boastfully brave moon moves into t-square alignment through an opposition to Saturn and a square to Uranus as Saturn continues to separate from its still-quite-fresh square to Uranus, thereby illuminating some of these recent paradoxical particulars—through this loose t-square degree, illuminated potentially, is the idea of revolution…

❝The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.❞
——Jim Morrison

Ideas may be forced, either by you or onto you by others… “what one person thinks is not always right for others.”

This is where transpersonal responsibility, personal accountability, and daily discernment—as well as overall emotional detachment—come into the astral atmospheres, particularly this year, to be acknowledged, embraced, and then strengthened from here and beyond… we have much shadow work to do, individually, before anything real can manifest itself elsewhere.

If we’re unable to think for ourselves, and discern trash and noise from actual nourishment and factual information… oh dear, hell’s bells, and hallelujah in holiness.

We are collectively vulnerable, and thereby compromisable in every way—collectively, and individually.

❝The first duty of a man is to think for himself.❞
——Jose Marti

Aquarian emphases support individuality, meaning that each of us, individually, need to be our own unique and authentic representation of ourselves alone and only, through “the ritualization of individual desires”… and through our authenticity, our gifts and skills emerge to be acknowledged and honored, and utilized throughout the community and collective—we all have a right to be here, and there’s room… we all belong.

Through the degree that Mars exacts its trine to Pluto, these efforts and preferences “reveal the individual human being making use of his personal status to find fulfillment and a sense of social identity.”

We all belong, yet—we can’t all be everywhere, always.

There could be much more emphasis upon these efforts now…

Truly, irritations and frustrations have been a focus for some time, as the first Saturn/Uranus square of three has been building, and now separating… and it is quite obvious to the world at this time that changes and alterations to the status quo as it is need to be adjusted, reformed, and improved.

Exactly «how» these changes and reformations are administered and organized is key…

Aquarian energies tend to be hyper-aware in consciousness with a real no-nonsense detachment thereof, and so much of why these energies typically feel, or are experienced as, irritated or triggering, disruptive, aloof, or unexpected—is because it is through these Aquarian energies that we are waking up, quite literally, and becoming hyper-aware to our own realities, and to the overall reality we are a part of, and this process can be quite disturbing.

Waking from complacency is never comfortable.

It is recognized and conceivable that “those who live safely within the comfort of society rarely rebel against what’s happening… however, there are exceptions to this—there may indeed be the need for a change to the status quo… you may feel that you have had enough of the situation and that you have no power—if so, you probably need to enlist the support of others if you wish to succeed.”

We will actually need to be in this together… because, really, we’re not in this together these days—not really… not when we’re so divided.

❝If you don’t stand for something, you will fall for anything.❞
——Chinese proverb

Truly, right action will need to be respected, and applied… as well as “innovative ways of doing things, with new directions and new solutions—you need to find a unique approach that will give you the ability to follow unusual and original paths leading to a new emergence… it is not enough to just look and play a part; we must know and live that part as well.”

It is now time to live our own authenticity.

BOUNDARY ADJUSTMENTS

Forecast for Tuesday, February 23rd
Cancer Gibbous Moon; Part 2


ॐOracular Mantra—walls and boundary measures are all well and good until they begin to resemble imprisonment…

It is possible, through the hours today, that your “talents or limits will be tested… to fully win in this situation, [you] must open [your] heart and let go of inhibitions, while others should drop their judgements—this will please some that are listening and allow people to feel fulfilled, even where there are a lot voices, there will be one that will be most listened to—is this your voice or someone else’s?”

❝If you spend your life sparing people’s feelings and feeding their vanity, you get so you can’t distinguish what should be respected in them.❞
——F. Scott Fitzgerald

It is imperatively important, these days—in particular, today—to not cut yourself off from others in any way.

Boundaries, sure… but should these boundaries be suffocating your efforts or opportunities to grow—then these boundaries, however well intended, are working against you… not for you.

❝We change our behavior when the pain of staying the same becomes greater than the pain of changing. Consequences give us the pain that motivates us to change.❞
——Dr. Henry Cloud & Dr. John Townsend

Truly, a Cancer moon seeks to protect… but also, to found—as in, to prepare and secure foundations—as in nesting.

Adjusting boundaries, as a bird building a best would, to more appropriately meet your needs would be a simple way to more appropriately nurture your current needs through the day’s energies, and the times these days…

❝When we fail to set boundaries and hold people accountable, we feel used and mistreated. This is why we sometimes attack who they are, which is far more hurtful than addressing a behavior or a choice.❞
——Brené Brown

Once the moon moves beyond the foggy lunarly compassions of a connection to Neptune, when no boundaries whatsoever will need to exist—the moon will then move toward connections to both Mars and Pluto, where boundaries might be best… boundaries, however, that reciprocate—rather than suffocate.

FACING ALL THE FACES

Forecast for Monday, February 22nd
Cancer Gibbous Moon


ॐOracular Mantra—wishing will make it so, as they say, but so will feeling it…

Today’s major potential hang-up is a lunarly square to Chiron, provoking or directly poking at what you thought was healed, accepted, or forgiven.

The Cancer moon clings…

The degree through which this painful clinging occurs suggests “invisible forces in all manifestations of life…” operating through etheric realms, influencing deeply, contrasting between one’s character and the processes of manifesting.

You may feel as though “your intuition and imagination [are] heightened now, with a stronger sense of spiritual or emotional center[ing]… allow your creativity to flow without worrying about its usefulness… some caution, though, is necessary—one can get lost in abstractions and fantasies that can lead away from the truth that should really be faced.”

Facing all the faces—confronting both the reality and the fantasy; the delights and the disappointments; the highs and the lows… and feeling through, toward new perspectives.

Are you sharing yourself?—really sharing yourself, as you are. Are you sharing common ground?

Creative imagination is what Rudhyar advises—is it possible to sacrifice your pain, or, much more: your ego, for the potential of your possibilities, and feel yourself from the other side?

❝The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.❞

A WORLD OF ONE’S OWN

Forecast for Sunday, February 21st
Gemini Gibbous Moon; Part 2


ॐOracular Mantra—being patient: is very good advice…

One of the songs Alice sings in Wonderland, as she confesses her regrets aloud to no one as her red-lined path becomes but a red square, within the shadowy woods she believes she’s trespassing through alone, as the curiously quirky creatures peek out to listen, suggests the following—

I give myself very good advice—but I very seldom follow it
That explains the trouble that I’m always in
Be patient—is very good advice
But the waiting makes me curious…
And I’d love the change—should something strange begin…
Well I went along my merry way—and I never stopped to reason
I should have known there’d be a price to pay
Someday, someday
I give myself very good advice—but I very seldom follow it
Will I ever learn to do the things I should?

Insights and intuitions continue to coagulate as current cohesion inspires more, however intelligent, questions and quandaries.

I continue to conjure the lines from Alice in Wonderland, when Alice carefully declares with confidence, “if I had a world of my own… everything would be nonsense—nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn’t, and contrary wise, what is, it wouldn’t be—and what wouldn’t be, it would… you see?”

Yes. As an old English teacher used to offer, “clear as mud”.

It’s almost demonstrative to read those ridiculous suggestions—to pinpoint exactly the part of it that triggers the most.

Perhaps it isn’t even so much the conflicting, confronting, and confounding confusions twisting and twirling about and all over—but the tiny detail regarding this world of one’s own.

❝Perception is reality to the one in the experience.❞
——Danielle Bernock

Is your world and personal reality as you would choose it?

These confusions are beginning to overflow into very personal particulars without much for boundaries… and it’s probably beginning to feel a little hopeless if you’re continuing to resist the changes all around…

What advice would you give yourself now?—which parts of your own advice have you deviated from in an effort to serve what you thought to be an insight or intuition?

Today might be a realization of sorts upon a red-lined path that now resembles more of a square.

Much like when Alice finally accounts for the error of her ways, seemingly alone in the shadowy forest, as the curiously quirky creatures peek out to listen…

RUTHLESSLY IRRATIONAL REFINEMENTS

Forecast for Saturday, February 20th
Gemini Gibbous Moon


ॐOracular Mantra—streamlining inwardly for the insights within…

The whimsy of today’s Gemini moon connects to the North Node in conjunction, through a degree which associates itself to ‘refined thinking; finding a state of calm; facing reality; and gaining maturity’… “regardless of age, it’s time for a more mature attitude”.

Further, this degree suggests that “the old ways of solving things will no longer work because this situation requires a more mature response, which will lead to another level of wisdom… now it’s time to use your intuition and intellect.”

❝How to think about a problem: the first step is to make the problem specific…; the second step is to form theories freely of how to rid yourself of that burden…; the third step is to develop in foresight the consequences of your proposals…; the fourth and final step in thinking is to compare the consequences of your proposals to see which is best in the light of your scheme of life as a whole.❞
——Brand Blanshard

What is your immediate environment communicating to you?

What are others within your immediate environment communicating to you?

Do you feel a connection or reflection between the two?

Mercury, today’s lunarly ruler, stations direct upon the Jupiter/Saturn midpoint of 11° Aquarius… what was Mercury’s message?—what has been explored, shifted, initiated, or adjusted since January?

It is likely that you will receive new information, inspiration or insights today, or soon, that “there is an answer coming, which will probably change many things, or at least change what most needs to be changed”… however, simultaneously, you might also be fully aware that rationality is simply not available at this time.

Today and tomorrow will offer opportunities for ruthless refining…

❝The resolute determination of self-realization is not formed in the minds of those who are attached to pleasure and power; and whose discernment is obscured by such activities.❞
——Bhagavad Gita

Mercury’s big reveal, if you will, could also easily be as simple as realizing that “a lot of internal as well as external noise needs to be quieted… you need to slow down and open up to the messages of your inner inspiration—by reducing the external noise, clutter and distraction, your mind can focus on what is essential, rather than what may just be convenient… there can also imply the need for a shift of some kind, and this may have been forgotten, or neglected, because of preoccupations with social matters, or being too busy…”

Mercury will reconnect to Jupiter by conjunction on March 4th, and both the noise and the unraveling, the insights and the epiphanies received from within will all manifest between now and then.

How can you more appropriately manage your focus to that which is most essential?

What’s the best practice for you to streamline your thoughts toward the connection of dots needed to manifest your ideals?

❝Most of what we say and do is not essential. If you can eliminate it, you’ll have more time, and more tranquility. Ask yourself at every moment, ‘is this necessary?’❞
——Marcus Aurelius

DISMANTLING DECEPTIONS

Forecast for Friday, February 19th
•●Gemini 1st Quarter Moon at 1°21′


ॐOracular Mantra—we’re not here to ‘know’ anything, there’s nothing to know; we’re here to learn, to feel, to understand, to inspire, and to be in absolute awe of it all…

The sun leaves the fixed and airy ongoing stellium, and moves into Pisces, though the airy fixity may remain the dominating vibration—with something of a stubborn exception… through the first quartered moon falling in Gemini, only adding to the airy vibration, these energies beg you to look at your circumstances, your connection to Self, your living breathing ideals, and your far-fetched ideas for tomorrow—to look at these through a ruggedly honest observation rather than through an egoically and emotionally involved attachment.

Sometimes it’s rather effortless to become so ensconced in our own living circles to lose sight of the circle itself, and even of ourselves within that circle.

Today’s energies are asking you to observe your own life objectively, to observe even your very own observations objectively—and this is much easier said than done, truly.

Through this new exercise endeavor of emotional detachment—though not without taking a personal accountability of responsibility—it is essential now to ask yourself what your observations really are…

Not what you’d prefer they be—but what they are, as they are… this is part of the dismantling.

❝Once an excuse has been deployed, brutal honesty is no longer an option.❞
——Linda Berdoll

As this month’s vibration continues—through your personal revolution unfolding, through taking personal responsibility for this revolution, and now—being brutally honest with yourself regarding your own revolution, as well as the current collective revolution… you will begin to observe both your own reality, and the overall reality beyond your own version of it, as it really is—and this may be quite jarring for you.

Your devoted focus, too, is likely heavily targeted toward the Truth you’re serving, or inspiring, as Vesta moves through Virgo at the seventeenth degree, Vesta representing the handle of the ongoing bucket aspect alignment that has been concentrating all efforts within one agenda, thriving within the energies of Sagittarius through Gemini… the unfolding of your personal revolution being somewhat flexible, and thereby evolving into something even more… if you’re allowing.

Astrologer Dane Rudhyar associates the degree of Virgo through which Vesta moves through—Vesta representing the inner spark that never goes out—with “that which has been ‘repressed’ so deeply for so long will, inevitably, (re)surface—and demand to be spoken for…”

This (re)surfacing will be therapeutic, and rewarding—but not without its personal and celestial defilements alike; destruction and creation coexist and endlessly collaborate.

Not only this, but Venus is exacting a square to Mars through the twenty-third degree between Aquarius and Taurus, and the long strange trip between Saturn in Aquarius and its ongoing squaring down toward Uranus in Taurus, this square occurring through the seventh degree—these two simultaneously occurring squares, exacting, cannot be ignored—and this is the stubborn exception.

This connection between Venus and Mars, by degree, associates itself to inspiration and guidance of a spiritual nature, specifically, but also the willful ‘overcoming of crisis’… what is to be both shared and received here is that there is little that can be truly destroyed if the appropriate ‘spirit’ is possessed, and graciously employed.

❝Feigned interest is worse than brutal honesty.❞
——Stewart Stafford

In fact, Rudhyar advises that “much depends on the attitudes we assume in these situations… character and a warm ‘under-standing’ of what is involved in the process of growth and overcoming of emotional heaviness can be taught—we can learn to discipline our natural impulses and to use them for a more-than-personal purpose…”

Further, this ‘creative spirit’, as Rudhyar describes it, is approaching something of a learning curve, coming upon a reckoning, and an awakening—and, as Rudhyar assigns ‘a new quality of being’, which will confront many planes of consciousness to abandon the ways of olde, which have been perpetuated for far too long and are simply no longer serving… this literal and metaphorical coming of age will require true listening, and the embracing and engagement of communication with actual content—not simply empty dialog. This creative sprit, then, regards a spiritual vitality that should exist within each and every exchange with one another.

This creative spirit, then, regards personal authenticity and personal accountability.

This creative spirit demands reciprocative understanding.

This reciprocative vitality will require objectivity, flexibility, and personal responsibility, and will result, ultimately, through these personal revolutions you’re only beginning to experience and learn from… discovering the delicate truth of the time, or the manifesting motions in the moment—discerning these from all the noise being shared in all directions… and remembering the inherent humanity within all of it.

Finally, Mercury stations today and will begin moving directly tomorrow through the eleventh degree of Aquarius… this stationing occurs through the midpoint degree between Jupiter and Saturn, and as Mercury will not connect with Saturn again by conjunction—and hopefully you are now very well aware of what needs your attention and discerning focus through any consciousness wake-up alarms that sounded around February 5th, it will connect in conjunction with Jupiter once more on March 4th through the seventeenth degree of Aquarius, suggesting a new and more relevant unmasking—in an effort to further your potentials through even more honest awareness yet.

Though these potentials and opportunities for expanded awareness and boundary-dismantling will only be available to: the open-minded—those that are willing to learn; the honest—those that are willing to understand with compassion and empathize instead of carelessly categorizing or corrosively cancelling; and the brave—those that are willing to rise and be seen, heard, and hopefully: understood.

❝One can give nothing whatever without giving oneself—that is to say, risking oneself… if one cannot risk oneself, then one is simply incapable of giving.❞
——James Baldwin

Furthermore, how very tabloid, how very sophomoric—how very lower frequency Gemini—to think we know anything about anything at all…

If anything—today is a day to be honest with yourself toward everything that you don’t know, and in the grand scheme of All That Is, that you might not even fully understand all of what you consider yourself to know, about any number of various things, despite years of devotion to whatever it is.

We’re not here to know anything.

The need to know is an effort of control… and even in the knowing, we do not have ultimate control of anything anyway. The need to know is based in fear.

Today is a day to ask yourself, or an/Other, out loud: in what ways can I better understand?

BREAKING THROUGH THE BREAKDOWN

Forecast for Thursday, February 18th
Taurus Crescent Moon; Part 2


ॐOracular Mantra—keep on, keepin on…

Settling in to some of these recent changes and upheavals remains a priority, as there isn’t much to focus upon otherwise. Too many unknowns to ponder, and to embrace—however reluctantly—as there isn’t much of an alternative…

You’re either embracing the unknowns and the unknowable now or you’re likely struggling.

Any feelings of insecurity today, with the moon remaining in Taurus, only adds to any obvious discomfort… however, if you’re beginning to soften to the endless flow of newness and curious unfamiliars—you’re likely waking to the seemingly endless possibilities of opportunity and potential before you, just waiting…

Truly, this, too, can be quite overwhelming.

❝I could no longer discern what was real and what was fake. Everything, including the present, seemed to be both too much and nothing at all.❞
——Clemantine Wamariya

Today remains a therapeutic day to pause, to continue simply taking it all in… breathing in and out, with gratitude… to embrace hopeful optimism in a most practical and realistic manner.

Today’s moon might just need to continue familiarizing with the moment, one moment at a time, as each moment passes into the next, slowly but surely… even as the moments continue to change and fluctuate, flip and collide… to learn each moment anew, as they are.

❝The way you live your days is the way you live your life.❞
——Brigid Schulte

Meanwhile, the sun moves into Pisces, marking the beginning of the dismantling of the current Aquarian assembly, (something which has not manifested itself in the same strength and intensity since February of 1962—and if any of you were born at that time I would love to hear about your current experiences…) hereafter Venus will follow near the end of the month, and then Mercury mid-March.

The height of this current Aquarian assembly was through the 9th, 10th, and 11th of this month, through the unexpectedness of the Aquarian new moon—through these days you very likely were introduced to an entirely new reality by way of breakthrough or breakdown… not to mention the background tug-of-war between the likes of Saturn and Uranus.

❝The problem is not that the world is a mess, but that we expect it to be otherwise.❞
——Matt Haig

This dismantling suggests a natural flow to follow, as each of the more personal planets, between Venus and Mercury, follow the example of the sun… between now and mid-March you’ll find your center, your grounding, your sense of illusioned security or rootedness—or you’ll understand more clearly how to go about accomplishing these bearings in a new way.

Either way, keep going—slowly, but surely—you need not understand any of it yet, and there’s so much more preparing to emerge; just keep going, keep looking up, keep on keepin on.

❝Being overwhelmed means that your life or work is overpowering you. Regain control by clarifying your intentions, setting realistic expectations and focusing on your next step.❞

PREPARING A PIVOT OF PAUSE

Forecast for Wednesday, February 17th
Taurus Crescent Moon


ॐOracular Mantra—there is pause within the changes…

The emergence of this new reality, and with it a ‘new quality of being’, as astrologer Dane Rudhyar states it, comes not only a stern sense and rather sobering demand for personal accountability, but what I’ve been yammering on for several posts now: transpersonal responsibility.

Are you walking your talk?—are you, yourself, practicing what you preach?

❝Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to reform, or pause and reflect.❞
——Mark Twain

Of course, like with anything, this Saturn/Uranus square process is a process and will require patience, determination, and nurturing… the manifestations through this process will take time, and ask for your particular skill or brand of hard work toward the ideals of necessity within a context of change.

As Rudhyar puts it, we are being introduced to “the meeting of the traditional past and of the creative spirit pointing to the future…” as well as “the value of anticipating and preparing for expectable conditions—Man should be ready to use past knowledge and skill to meet the demands of a stage yet to come… we are at the stage of vision: new forms are revealed to the consciousness, as well as new ways of meeting other people in social relationships.”

❝Practice the pause. Pause before judging. Pause before assuming. Pause before accusing. Pause whenever you’re about to react harshly and you’ll avoid doing and saying things you’ll later regret.❞
—— Lori Deschene

Today’s Taurean moon needs to nurture a new goal or ideal… and everything is changing—perhaps, so too, are your ideals?

A Taurean moon isn’t too keen on abrupt or aggressive change… but responds impressively well to previously planned pivots, and finds a stance rather easily… however, further emphasizing today’s lunarly conjunction to Uranus, through the seventh degree of Taurus, simultaneously squaring Saturn in Aquarius, exactly, perhaps a most unexpected and rebellious act, these days, could be to pause.

❝A pause; it endured horribly.❞
