Forecast for Friday, August 21st
Libra Crescent Moon

★Oracular Overview—mountains and molehills…

It’s that time of week again for the squish to be sideswiped in some way…

The moon is now in reciprocating Libra, opposing Chiron in Aries, applying an opposition to Mars tomorrow, and thereby simultaneously squaring the retrograded heavyweights in Capricorn… it’s a loosely structured t-square of sorts, demanding smothering sessions of tender loving care however you’re able to inspire it.

However, attempts toward tender loving care could be incredibly subtle, or entirely mistaken, or even avoided altogether.

Regardless of whether it’s you needing, or from an/Other’s viewpoint needing from you… these ineffective ‘demands’ may not be taken to kindly.

Or taken up at all.

❝Look within. Within is the fountain of good, and it will ever bubble up, if thou wilt ever dig.❞
——Marcus Aurelius

From a lunarly Libran perspective, it may be difficult to find that sweet spot—that happy balance—between feeling alone and feeling supported in «exactly» and «precisely» the way you’re feeling as though you need it now.

Not to imply the stereotypical neediness of Cancerian energies, whereas from Libran energies, these needs become somewhat judgmental and/or accusatory, even to the extent of throwing this shade in either direction—toward yourself or at an/Other… try to remember that duality is but an idea, not a reality, and an isolating one at that.

And perhaps this back-and-forth imbalance is part of the frustration?

Your need for balance could be bombarded in that “communication here is at a completely different level than is normally experienced—it can be unspoken, and include subtle messages…” leaving much to be misinterpreted or misunderstood, or missed entirely.

So, what’s between these two extremely differing dynamics?

The moon is moving to the eventual square toward the Capricorn heavyweights, occurring effectively tomorrow, so defenses and edginess could become anticipated, as if through the shift of a breeze or the blowing of the wind… the ego is feeling extremely exposed through an opposition to Chiron, moving through the aggressions of impatient Aries—and this will also be something of a monthly ritual to become acquainted with—now and through the rest of the year—as cardinality influences us all, individually and collectively, between Mars in Aries and the Capricorn heavyweights… these will continue to dominate the weekly lunarly schedule through the rest of the year.

Knowing when to respond and when to react is key.

❝Know the masculine, keep to the feminine.❞
——Lao Tzu

Knowing how to effectively take care of yourself—to nurture your entire spectrum of needs—is invaluable.

★A detail of import, here—when the moon is in Libra—each month after opposing Chiron, an opposition to Mars will follow…

One of two perspectives could be projected through this information—and you can choose to prepare for this and psychically protect yourself—

In other words, you can choose to feel as though you’re being bullied, or metaphorically kicked, or emotionally bombarded as you’re already desperate on your knees, via whatever circumstances through which these planetary movements are activating in actual manifestation within your chart, into your reality—OR—you could choose to be much more motivated to move mountains, to gently conjure and honor your inner warrior, and to propel yourself toward your potential, regardless of the inevitable obstacles you’re being bombarded with or those slowing you down.

These choices, endlessly, are up to you… each week, each month. Each day.

❝Nothing divides you so much as thought.❞
——Reginald Blyth

Ask yourself (or feel through yourself) what the baseline essence of it all is: the «why» behind the potential threats to the ego—your own or an/Others—and what the ego could be experiencing.

Knowing how to effectively take care of yourself—to feel this in trust, and actually participate in your own nurturing—to nurture your entire spectrum of needs—is invaluable… it may be difficult to find that sweet spot today—that happy balance—but I implore you to try.

If mountains are being made over molehills, that’s one thing… and if molehills are being mistaken for mountains, that’s another.

But if you’re able to navigate a mountain as if it were a molehill… well, that’s quite another thing, indeed.

❝Be patient toward all that is unresolved in your heart, and try to love the questions themselves.❞
——Rainer Maria Rilke
