INITIATIVES IN COMPASSION

Forecast for Wednesday, July 8th
Pisces Disseminating Moon

★Oracular Overview—be gentle with yourself and with one another, practice patience, and allowing the space for an honest willingness to truly listen to an/Other couldn’t hurt…

Still likely alienated, and still moving void of course in Aquarius until 11:18am on the west coast, the Piscean moon takes on a trine to a retrograded Mercury later in the evening while a retrograded Mercury connects to Mars in Aries by square…

❝A lone walker is both present and detached, more than an audience but less than a participant.❞
——Rebecca Solnit

Mercury, retrograde, in Cancer is somewhat alienated in its own ways—for instance, Mercury doesn’t enjoy feelings whereas Cancerian energies source all reality through feelings and emotions; Mercury remains typically detached and unencumbered whereas Cancerian energies seemingly thrive on attachments; Mercury knows no bounds whereas Cancerian energies are quite guarded with boundaries.

The month-long Mercury/Mars relationship, in regard to Mercury being uncomfortable in Cancer while Mars is quite strengthened in Aries, suggests, among many things, that a direct, potentially confrontational, and somewhat aggressive manner of connection or communication could bombard an already somewhat confounded or complicated thought-feeling process or otherwise personally preferred method of making sense of one’s reality.

Keeping a solid connection with one’s higher self, with All That It, is key… we are living in extreme times.

❝As a culture, we have wandered into a state of prolonged neurosis because of the absence of a direct pipeline to the unconscious. As a result, we have fallen victim to priestcraft of every conceivable sort.❞
——Terence McKenna

Another potentially vicious side effect of an upcoming nearly-month-long connection between Mercury in Cancer and Mars in Aries is using words as weapons. Granted, a constructive use of this energy would be a more direct and confident expression of voice and opinion… but used as a weapon—and our current structural reality, sadly, lends itself rather easily to the shadowy inclinations of current energies—turns this energy quite contentious, manipulative, bitter, and just plain nasty.

❝The bigger the mess, the greater the progress.❞
——Richie Norton

Also, most directly and simply put—if you haven’t already—prepare to learn, rather abrasively, or become privy to potentially harsh information, news, updates, debates, or hype from now through the end of the month.

❝Nothing seems to tempt fate more than mentioning the possibility of something bad happening.❞
——Donald G. Firesmith

It’s also essential to note that this month’s quarterly lunations are both governed by Mars—the last quarter moon in Aries on July 12th and the first quarter moon in Scorpio on July 27th… and quarterly moons are already somewhat confrontational and urging—so Mars, moving through the thoughtless bravado of  Aries, will definitely enhance and intensify these natural inclinations.

Ultimately and overall—practicing patience, with yourself and with one another couldn’t be stressed enough… irritations will be easy to come by and we will all be navigating unknown territories with thorns of some nature lodged in our sides, scared, not knowing when that second shoe will drop.

Listen to your instincts, be gentle with yourself through any and all confrontations—as the essence of Mercury in Cancer and Mars in Aries coming together by square is trying to teach an initiative of action through thoughtful, mindful compassion… mean what you say and say what you mean, but do try to be kind; and remember that we’re all managing through these times, both alone and together, simultaneously.

❝Call out the instigators
Because there’s something in the air
We’ve got to get together sooner or later
Because the revolution’s here
And you know it’s right…
We’ve got to get it together—now.❞
——Thunderclap Newman; “Something in the Air”
