Forecast for Wednesday, July 15th
Taurus Balsamic Moon; Part 2
★Oracular Overview—learning to begin each day, today and through the rest of the year, with an open heart and honestly open mindset–as if this is your very first day on this planet–this could be a truly compelling experiment…
Planned obsolescence is a term I only just learned from my Muse, which is a marketing term of sorts describing “a policy of producing consumer goods that rapidly become obsolete and so requires replacing, achieved by frequent changes in design, as well as termination of the supply of spare parts, and the use of nondurable materials…”
In other words—building things that are built to last doesn’t line the pockets of the wealthy quite quickly enough, so it’s no longer a goal.
This is a real thing.
This is absolutely a Venusian issue, Venus governing today’s Taurean moon—much more, it goes against both Nature and universal law… this directly and blasphemously insults Venusian associations toward the highest-quality of standards, of natural Taurean value—it’s no wonder that the essence of these items is taken—it’s no wonder there is so much emptiness, and never-ending trash heaps to fill so many pockets of emptiness…
❝With planned obsolescence, you can terminate everyone’s future at once and they’ll never know what hit them.❞
Speaking of emptiness, energy levels are lowered and lowering as the lunarly energies surrender toward the upcoming new moon on July 20th—what has been learned since Solstice?
What has changed?
What is emerging?
What has sustained itself?
What is rotting, ruined, and planned for due obsolescence?
What is being passed along?
Is it our responsibility to demand that quality be a given?—not a luxury?
It has come to this being a demand… what world are we living in?
There is much to be done.
Still, despite the obvious surrendering—metaphori-spiritually speaking—an underlying, ever-charging, ever-electric frequency seems to continue sustaining itself underneath it all and within, not to mention the earliest hours of the day beginning upon a sun/Pluto opposition…
Is it, then, our responsibility to nurture this emerging electricity?—to simply learn from it, to understand it?—or to use it in action?—through ‘righting’ ‘wrongs’ and illuminating both archetypal mythologies and capitalized falsities through right action… keeping in mind, of course, that open-mindedness and open-heartedness both directly mean and imply embracing the very real actuality that absolutely no one knows what the f*ck is happening other than the obvious—being that nothing will ever be as it once was… beyond this, we mustn’t rely on what we think we know as what we think we know is what brought us to this place… and obsolescence hasn’t helped.
And most assuredly, fifty years from now they’ll wonder what the hell we were thinking.
The ten commandments are all well and good, though I always struggled to actually be informed by any of them—in other words, my life has not directly benefited from an awareness of them—the commandments have always seemed somewhat obvious to me, or unnecessary altogether, as though there was likely some sort of agenda beneath them—which is also to point out that they are man-made, and thereby inherently flawed…
However, the principles of biomimicry and the universal laws—these, to me, seem much more informative, beneficial, and, after all, natural to the cosmos we’re a very small part of…
Nature itself is never flawed, is never wrong, and never fails…
The Principles of Biomimicry are as follows—
Nature runs on sunlight
Nature uses only the energy it needs
Nature fits form to function
Nature recycles everything
Nature rewards cooperation
Nature banks on diversity
Nature demands local expertise
Nature curbs excesses from within
Nature taps the power of limits
The 12 LAWS OF THE UNIVERSE—
Law of Divine Oneness•••
Everything is connected to everything else; what we think, say, do and believe will have a corresponding effect on others and the universe around us.
Law of Vibration•••
Everything in the universe moves, vibrates and travels in circular patterns, these same principles of vibration in the physical world apply to our thoughts, feelings, desires and wills in the etheric world; each sound, thing, and thought has its own vibrational frequency, unique unto itself.
Law of Action•••
This law must be employed in order to manifest things on earth; engage in actions that support truth in thoughts, dreams, emotions and words.
Law of Correspondence•••
This universal law states that the principles or laws of physics that explain the physical world, energy, light, vibration, and motion have their corresponding principles in the etheric or universe; ie “as above, so below.
Law of Cause & Effect•••
Nothing happens by chance or outside universal laws; every action, including thought, has a reaction or consequence; ie “we reap what we sow…”
Law of Compensation•••
This universal law is the law of cause and effect applied to blessings and abundance that are provided; the visible effects of deeds are given in gifts, money, inheritances, friendships and blessings.
Law of Attraction•••
This law demonstrates how we create the things, events and people that come into our lives; our thoughts, feelings, words, and actions produce energies which, in turn, attract like energies; ie negative energies attract negative energies and positive energies attract positive energies.
Law of Perpetual Transmutational Energy•••
All persons have within them the power to change the conditions of their lives, higher vibrations consume and transform lower ones; thus, each of us can change the energies in our lives by understanding the universal laws and applying the principles in such a way as to effect change.
Law of Relativity•••
Each person will receive a series of problems/lessons for the purpose of strengthening the light within each of these tests/lessons to be a challenge and remain connected to our hearts when proceeding to solve the problems; this law also teaches us to compare our problems to others problems into proper perspective.
Law of Polarity•••
Everything is on a continuum and has an opposite; we can suppress and transform undesirable thoughts by concentrating on the opposite pole; ie it is the law of mental vibrations.
Law of Rhythm•••
Everything vibrates and moves to certain rhythms; these rhythms establish seasons, cycles, stages of development, and patterns.
Law of Gender•••
The law of gender manifests in all things as masculine and feminine; it is this law that governs what we know as creation. The law of gender manifests in the animal kingdom as sex and this law decrees everything in nature is both male and female, as both are required for life to exist.
Shamanic astrologer Raven Kaldera titles today’s moon the Ancestor’s Moon, and writes that “the ancestors hold dear what can be left to the future, not what is hoarded in the present…” further, he adds that “the Native Americans speak of borrowing the Earth from our children rather than inheriting it from our ancestors, and this is the main realization of the Ancestor Moon—the redemption of the crisis engenders a kind of desperate rush, which for Taurus is a very uncomfortable feeling… the balsamic moon is a time of summing up the story; Taurus looks around at all that has been done since the dryad stepped out of her tree, and realizes that much of that needs to be undone, and even more remains to be finished…”
❝You are the fairy tale told by your ancestors.❞
These electrical vibrations or frequencies or currencies—whatever you want to call this underlying energy—is, after all, not necessarily anything new… for many of us it is only Now that we are finally becoming aware.
Continued, Kaldera sentiments that “on the Ancestor Moon we look at the gifts we inherited from those who struggled and survived… of the minds and spirits, people whose works and deeds reverberate in us and inspire us—it’s also important to look honestly at the evils that have been passed down, with a thoughtful understanding of the era and beliefs and human fears that produced those evils…”
❝Keep two pieces of paper in your pockets at all times—one that says “I am a speck of dust,” and the other, “The world was created for me.”❞
——Rabbi Bunim of P’shiskha
Today it might be necessary or auspicious to embrace an awareness over something within your reality… and to nurture both its shadows and its sparkle—knowing, and truly understanding, and embracing a new sense of comfort within this new reality that you don’t have to know anything for certain now, that answers to old and new questions alike are demanding brand new answers, answers that haven’t been acknowledged yet.
Through today’s Taurean moon, the sun/Pluto opposition embraces a bit more meaning in that these both haunting and hearthing reverberations that continue to linger from the past are, perhaps, occurring on many varying levels these days… and maybe today will open to you—maybe it will open your heart and your mind—to these realities, as well.
Otherwise, if there are feelings of potential threat or defensiveness, all of these supporting energies will only enhance those shadowy inclinations and inspire fear, paranoia, and defensiveness—and these methods don’t typically function toward the opening of the heart and mind.
I would imagine the shadowy inclinations of these influences would feel much like what the filthy wealthy CEOs must feel when faced with alternatives toward quality merchandise and products—defensive, paranoid, and fearful of losing their luxury livelihood upon the backs and charge cards of the ‘obsolete and oblivious’…
❝It is quality rather than quantity that matters.❞
Truly, as the sun highlights Pluto’s faraway shadows and unearths the bad and the ugly, the trash heaps and the emptiness, and all things void of meaning or value—remember the good, remember your personal power—and mindfully, consciously pass down to an/Other only the very best of what you know to be true… and one day, our collective lessons will be learned, and only the very best for everyone involved will do.
