Forecast for Tuesday, August 11th
Taurus Last Quarter Moon

★Oracular Overview—I don’t know if this is true or not: this should be a catch phrase this year…

Something true «is» emerging these days… actual truth, raw opportunity, and brand new realities—No Longer is no longer and Now continue to not look or feel the same as Not Yet… but we don’t yet know this to be true.

Not yet.

How does one explain it?—or, is it rather, and much more appropriately, something more relevantly «experienced» or felt?

Try to remember how truth «feels»…

Truth doesn’t vindictively hurt, or need to be ‘right’, or even need validation; truth doesn’t manipulate an entire marginalized population or belief; truly, truth might not always be kind, or easy, but it is not hateful. Truth never comes from a place of fear, truth «overcomes» fear.

Truth always rises above, it does not wallow.

❝In a time of deceit telling the truth is a revolutionary act.❞
——George Orwell

You may recall the parable of the blindfolded men placed upon different locations in front of an elephant—one man stood next to the elephant’s foot, one at its tail, and one at its trunk.

Each man touching the tail, the trunk, or the foot experienced truth… albeit a fraction thereof—there is typically so much more to every story, and the truth is almost always as simple as it can be.

❝Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.❞
——Aldous Huxley

With the Leo sun still upon the apex of the aspectually forming yod arrangement, also referred to as the ‘finger of God’, invoking both Jupiter and Neptune, this aspectual connection suggests that the core essence of something’s higher meaning or authentic purpose—such as the symbolism of current circumstances, or the truth of a relevant matter—is emerging, however brightly—so brightly it forces one to squint and not see directly, not unlike the blindfolded men exploring only a fraction of an overall truth…

This metaphorical squinting could be contributing, or become a result thereof, to the lack of clarity currently being experienced—much like being blindfolded—when it’s the trusting of one’s own direct experiences of truth that should always be trusted, through the allowances of open-mindedness and open-heartedness, trusting that there is likely more to understand in any circumstance, and so much more to learn.

And you’re likely directly experiencing something of a learning curve with at «least» one component within your current reality…

The degree through which this last quarter moon occurs associates itself with feelings seemingly coming out of nowhere… “however things have probably been building up for some time—perhaps you saw it coming, or maybe you weren’t aware that the changes would go as far as they have… one thing’s for sure: it is coming from somewhere deep within your emotional and spiritual development—there is a promise of rewards and brand new beginnings, however, this is probably only the beginning.”¹

❝And that’s how we measure out our real respect for people—by the degree of feeling they can register, the voltage of life they can carry and tolerate—and enjoy. End of sermon. As Buddha says: live like a mighty river. And as the old Greeks said: live as though all your ancestors were living again through you.❞
——Ted Hughes

Continued, “there is much work to be done developing this possibility into something fertile and productive—observe and learn from the things that are erupting into your conscious reality… what is possible, and what is not, will become more obvious as time goes on… you may feel a little alienated—but that’s only relative to the conditions of what it is that you’re leaving behind.”¹

These learning curves could be better understood through visualizing the men willingly and eagerly taking off their blindfolds, for the sheer and natural curiosity of it, and realizing an entire elephant stands before them, realizing one another, all together—this elephant, and one another, each living and breathing, all with their very own experiences of reality to share.

❝Today I speak the truth as I know it to be, tomorrow I may know better.❞
——T Jay Taylor

Another perspective upon this same degree is suggesting “the surge of new potentiality after the crisis… toward an awareness of spiritual forces at work—when the mind has been emptied and light has been called upon to purify the consciousness freed from its attachment and contaminations, a new release of life can emerge out of the infinite ocean of potentiality.”²

There is much value in this, and a Taurean moon appreciates a good value.

Much more, Taurean influences inspire determined purpose—and as Mars continues to apply its square to Pluto, amidst all the Leonine and Uranian energies abound—there is amazing will emerging within you, within that precious place inside us all… an impatiently determined will in individual authenticity is rising, and it will not be deterred or defeated.

Whether it is believed to be true or not… it is.

Truth need not be believed to be.

❝A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life.❞
——Charles Darwin
