CLEAR VISIONS & PAUSE

Forecast for Thursday, October 1st
Aries Full Moon

Oracular Overview—narrowing down the Isness of it all…

To begin the month a full moon in Aries at 9˚08’ connects to Chiron by conjunction at 7˚04’ Aries, at 2:04pm PDT* while a retrograded Mars, which governs this lunar event, triggers a confrontational square connection to the ongoing Capricorn stellium between Saturn, Pluto, and Jupiter.

The Capricorn stellium of heavyweights is now collectively moving forward, or stationing to do just that, as Mars has been connecting by square since September, and will continue this squared connection until later this month—and then again through December once Mars has stationed to move directly again. This said, October may offer the height of these evolving and transforming tensions, especially as the sun is now moving through Libra, further activating three of the four cardinal points.

Always, a square represents the need for adjustment, or the necessity for change, and as Mars is currently retrograde, this change, or adjustment, could be more appropriately navigated through inner motivations, such as re-examining the motivations behind what it is you’re working toward… thusly, you may feel somewhat halted in your efforts through these transitions, though externally, circumstances may begin manifesting, or feel a bit renewed, or at least no longer on pause.

Further, as Mars is retrograde, this too suggests an inherent reexamination be addressed toward the motivations behind absolutely everything you do, though most specifically, through the sector of your nativity where Mars is moving, but also—why you’re doing what you’re doing–what is in it for you?

What are you motivated by in your pursuit of this goal?

How are you focusing toward what it is you really want?

What is your strategic plan?—and how are you navigating the obstacles?

And further, how are you envisioning the overall process unfolding?

It is at this point, quite likely, that you have a very clear idea of what the future looks like for you, and what it holds… whether this clarity is coming from premonition, or probability–your bluer than blue horizons are so close and so clear and so, so very, very coherently cohesive… it is truly only a matter of doing what needs to be done now—and this might be the source of frustration—potential attempts to move forward are either being thwarted by demands to practice patience and proceed slowly, if not in pause… or it simply isn’t occurring quickly enough for your liking.

Mars in Aries is strengthened, and has the ‘right of way’, if you will; however, Mars in Aries demands what is needed and wanted three days ago—endlessly baffled by the time it takes for anything… and Mars in Aries isn’t too keen on asking an/Other for assistance–which is precisely the essence of this lunar event.

Mars in Aries is something of a lone warrior, venturing forth, with nothing but a vision in mind, if that… or, an angry embittered soldier with PTSD—the choice is endlessly yours.

It is important that you have a clear vision in mind at this point.

What is your unconscious mind trying to trigger for you?

Mars in Aries in retrograde is ever more frustrated, warrior or soldier, much like a toddler having an explosive meltdown for no apparent reason in a public place.

Practicing patience now is likely largely easier said than done, I realize… still, it is this much more imperative for you to cooperate within these energies, as the more volatile the energies you’re experiencing are, the more consequential they are likely to become—for better or worse—as Mars energies are so easily quite instantaneous, impulsive, and irrevocable.

Simply put, Mars is the action planet and needs to do, to act, to move… and when in retrograde, Mars is temporarily rendered impotent, and cannot easily do, or naturally act, or directly move, and it is typical to experience frustration, tension, and agitation as a result—especially when trying to work within and in between ongoing squares to Saturn or Pluto.

Your visions, then, may experience a need to become narrowed down a bit more—more specifically—as they may be simply too vast to fully effect your most concentrated efforts upon, and thereby becoming somewhat hindered in its efficaciousness—through both your efforts and the Isness of it all.

Furthermore, the moon is in Aries with Mars, and Chiron, and this somewhat intensifies these issues and matters, as the moon in Aries is naturally more combative than a typical lunar placement, triggering more so the irrationality of emotions and motivations while Chiron in Aries complicates issues and matters through a subtle undermining of confidence, such as feelings of inadequacy, or feeling undeserving of the best of the best of all things… as Chiron is so close to the moon through this event, it would suggest that in going-it alone toward your goals and pursuits, consequently, you may not be receiving everything that you need, especially in regard to what your goals and pursuits are requiring.

It will also be quite clear at this point what it is you are actually willing to fight for, and at what cost, as these lunarly triggers have the potential to trigger much more than one could possibly prepare for.

Simply put—an opportunity to ask an/Other for assistance, guidance, or reference may come to you… for as you seek out your own inner guidance—again—your visions may be too demanding, too complicated… too ‘much’ in some regard—or, contrarily, offer so much potential or opportunity that it feels like too much, too much to process, for better or worse.

Could this be the source of your frustrations?

Sometimes frustration is delicious and oh, so savory…

And naturally, this pause would look and feel quite differently.

As the cardinal points are currently not present in Cancer—this could describe a need, a vulnerability, and a plea to ask aloud for what you’re needing—unconditional nurturing and attunement in ways beyond what you can do for yourself… if only you’re willing to be courageous in all ways emotional—your visions will move forward with much more context, and through much more feeling.

RECOVERING FROM REALITY

Forecast for Wednesday, September 30th
Pisces Gibbous Moon; Part 3

★Oracular Overview—regaining, taking, making and doing…

The Latin root of the word ‘recover’ is ‘recuperāre’, meaning ‘to regain; recuperate’… and it is likely that a little bit of tender loving care and recovery may be necessary, as this week’s Saturn stationing theme continues to hold strong.

What’s interesting about the etymology of this word is that it has an
obscure derivative from ‘reciperāre’, of ‘capere’, meaning ‘to take’.

It may be entirely necessary that you’ll need to take the actions necessary to recover in some way, depending upon your circumstances.

❝You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestation of your own
blessings.❞
——Elizabeth Gilbert

Responsibilities and obligations are both quite Saturnian in nature, though today’s Piscean moon may emphasize or exploit the compassioned motivations within either, and the sacrifice honored to fulfill either—softening the rigidity, or offering a flow to an otherwise restricting, confining, or otherwise limiting experience.

Still. A serious need for foundational appropriation is likely needed. It just shouldn’t be so authoritarian—but rather, much more holistically, authoritative.

Today’s moon is a moon shamanic astrologer Raven Kaldera titles the Poets Moon—which is “a time to think about what you are willing to sacrifice for your own creative self-expression, or perhaps why you sacrifice it instead…”

❝Don’t live the same day over and over again and call that a life. Life is about evolving mentally, spiritually, and emotionally.❞
——Germany Kent

If you’re compromising yourself in any way it would be no wonder why a sobering need for recovery or recuperation be demanding a space within your reality…

The root of the word ‘sacrifice’ is ‘facere’, meaning ‘to make, to do’, suggesting, yet again, the imperative of action—to sacrifice need not give away, especially when/if one is in such low supply, but offer alternative routes to more…

Tomorrow’s Aries full moon, the Warriors Moon, which should rearrange many a narrative and trigger many a circumstance, will conjunct Chiron at 9° Aries—a moon through which “we fight for what we believe in… [a fight which] is a lone battle… [likely with yourself].”

The moon will move into Aries later today, charging forth—perhaps literally—into this fight… into this challenge, this new perspective, these new circumstances—this new horizon.

❝You just can’t let life happen to you, you have to make life happen.❞
——Idowu Koyenikan

Also of note—the first 21 days of October involve Mars Rx in Aries squaring back at Pluto and Jupiter in Capricorn, which should likely continue influencing either challenge, or conquest—the choice of how you choose to use these energies is yours, authoritatively so…

However. Right now, and through this week, Mars is squaring back at a very recently stationed Saturn, and so these visions of yours—through a collaborative effort between all of these retrograded squares—these ideals and goals of yours may be challenging you to go forth, to charge up your courage to take the reins of your life and truly live it.

Take a breath. Take a moment. Create a plan ‹to take› that step…

REALITY CHECKS ARE COMING

Forecast for Tuesday, September 29th
Pisces Gibbous Moon; Part 2

★Oracular Overview—expectations only invite, inspire, and illicit disappointment…

Saturn stationed yesterday, and when a planet—especially an outer planet—stations, which is essentially the celestial equivalent of a moving vehicle on the interstate coming to a stop… this conveys meaning and attracts attention—in other words, whether one is aware of it or not, in any way, it is inevitably noticed at an energetic level.

Saturn moving back through the last degrees of Capricorn since July 1st has symbolically suggested that Capricornian lessons were not fully learned through the months since December of 2017… which suggests that true values have not yet been appropriately reassigned or even acknowledged; power, privilege, and status is still being abused and/or misused; and the idea of security remains ridiculously and endlessly insecure… collectively, and possibly even personally—however indirectly.

These will be issues that continue to thrive through the rest of the year, and into the next.

❝[Even] poetry can cause irreparable harm when misapplied…❞
——Gail Carriger

What themes, issues, circumstances, or weights are continuing to resonate, re-emerge, surface, or weigh you down or wear you out?—this is likely how Saturn is influencing your reality.

What lessons remain unlearned, or continue to cause you pause?

What obligation do you wish you could either transform, or release?

One perspective upon the degree through which Saturn stationed is associated with “the hide-and-seek of the Self from the Self; projecting parts of oneself onto lovers or enemies; facing one’s psychological problems squarely; refusing to get immersed in the flow of time-bound events; and glimmering reflections of the eternal within the physical…”¹

We likely have some significant lessons in the way of these examples and sense of values coming next month as we continue to navigate the reflective lessons given through this month… next month, as Saturn will be moving directly, will likely be that much more cumbersome.

Because, keep in mind: that as Saturn is stationing, its simultaneously connecting to Mars by an exacting square. Ouch. Cumbersome, indeed.

❝In the long run, fictions create more frustration and anger in people since they get so addicted to it that they find reality quite boring and cumbersome.❞
——Awdhesh Singh

So. This is suggesting that today and this week may offer you a reality check in some way, to remind you of the seriousness of a matter needing dealt with, or more appropriately navigated, or, and above all, that you alone are the author of your ideal life, as well as the life you are currently living.

These energies are either ‘bullying’ you or motivating you—and either way, these energies are motivated to reprioritize your egoic properties and potentialities alike, and to realign your reality, within the silent yearnings of your soul’s purpose.

To some, even minor, degree we are all living within a version of man-made reality that is toxic to the soul… these versions you are subscribing to, willingly or not, if they are not serving you—can always be unsubscribed.

What are you sacrificing, and at what ultimate price?

This ultimate price may be a cost you’ll pay later, and for now maybe you’re considering it out of sight. Or maybe you’re living so far into the future, killing yourself for an illusioned sense of security, that you’re not even living in your Now… these are just examples.

❝Dreams do come true, if only we wish hard enough. You can have anything in life if you will sacrifice everything else for it.❞
——J.M. Barrie

Essentially—whatever actions you’re currently trying to take… life itself, or an/Others version of reality, or institutional structures alike—are creating obstacles, delays, or frustrated setbacks or resistances… and celestially, you’re being given an opportunity to slow down, yield, or stop altogether to (re)consider, (re)assess, and (re)prioritize what really matters to you, what really matters to you here in your Now.

It’s an opportunity to reroute… to abandon any expectations toward what you thought anything would be.

Also, this time could be used to re-examine—if power and status is important to you—why?; or anything, especially anything material—why are these ideas so important or meaningful to you?

It is not an evil idea to be driven toward, or motivated by, power or privilege or status, or even material manifestations… it’s how you use this motivation—and if you share your wealth, or hoard it, or manipulate others with it—this is what matters, and reverberates. Following the inner motivation of your answers, in either direction, down to its essence should tell you something—if you’re being wholly honest with yourself.

And perhaps this is truly the issue: we should all want to strive for more, with gratitude always present and expressed—without apology.

And issues of security—especially securities toward, through, or associated with an/Other, formal or otherwise—security is an illusion, no matter how much money, matrimony, mandates or mental machinations you throw at these man-made ideals: security is an idea.

And ideas··· change like that.

❝If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.❞
——Henry David Thoreau

It is also likely that the more willing you are to surrender to the ugliest honesty within yourself about such things—the less confining or conflicting or confounding they might otherwise be, and as the sun exacts its opposition to Chiron today, this may well be much more possible for you to explore without defensiveness.

Interestingly, the seventh degree of Aries, through which this opposition between the sun and Chiron is occurring, associates itself with “living two separate lives…” representing “the first realization of the dual nature of man and of the possibilities it implies… this somewhat strange image can be understood if every stated feature in it is clearly analyzed without preconceptions.”²

Again. Holding no envisions of expectation toward anything.

Especially with such a self-sacrificing Piscean moon—these energies today offers, or bombards you with, could become a bit overwhelming…especially so, if they’re being misunderstood, confused, refused, or denied. Or—perhaps more revelently, if expectations are entirely unreasonable…

We’re preparing to embark upon a new level of this jumanji year—a level which will present entirely new rules… and to confine yourself to a rigidly envisioned expectation in any direction either way will severely compromise you and your efforts—and for what?—to feel in control?

There is no reason to feel threatened, though, this might be a natural reaction… responding with open-mindedness and open-heartedness would serve you better—though, these choices to be made amidst the chaos are endlessly yours to make, and endlessly yours to pay for.

❝Perspectives are like batteries. You can see the positive or the negative, and they’ll keep you charged up, if you replace them often enough.❞

REALISTICALLY DREAMY WHIMSY

Forecast for Monday, September 28th
Pisces Gibbous Moon


★Oracular Overview—bargaining and bartering both beauty and balance–realistically…

I would like to imagine that today might offer you subtlety, poetry, beauty, ease, creativity, and/or dreamy whimsy…

❝What’s life without whimsy?❞
——Dr Sheldon Cooper; “The Big Bang Theory”

And although you are very likely experiencing something of a ‘broadened experience’ in some way, the moon connects to Mercury by trine through the first degree… this degree also refers “to oppressive conditions as it represents a “closing of accounts,” a final evaluation of the harvest of the cycle… what is stressed is the coming together, in a final experience… of all factors previously experienced; this means constructive interaction—in a practical sense, [this] emphasizes that the time has come to take full advantage of social opportunities…”¹

Today’s moon is also the Poets Moon, titled by shamanic astrologer Raven Kaldera, a moon which is used “to think about what you are willing to sacrifice for your own creative self-expression, or perhaps why you sacrifice it instead…”²

Feelings are heightened and sensitivities are also quite piqued today—and these energies could inspire you to tune in and center yourself into a very groovy vibration… or these energies could also overwhelm you, and drown out your intuition or inner voice in some way—or there could be confusions or misinterpretations of meaning or intention.

❝You talk when you cease to be at peace with your thoughts.❞
——Kahlil Gibran

Saturn also stations direct later tonight at 25°20′ Capricorn*, offering a likely heavy dose of reality… and there’s not typically much whimsy associated with these notions.

One perspective upon the degree through which Saturn stationed is associated with “the hide-and-seek of the Self from the Self; projecting parts of oneself onto lovers or enemies; facing one’s psychological problems squarely; refusing to get immersed in the flow of time-bound events; and glimmering reflections of the eternal within the physical…”³

Wowzah, right?!

And finally, Venus and Mars connect by trine through the twenty-fifth degrees of Leo and Aries, respectively, suggesting my original presumption and hope for beauty, ease, creativity, and dreamy whimsy… though Saturn’s stationing may maintain something of, at least, a strictness to these—a sobriety toward beauty, a seriousness of ease, a disciplined creativity, and a very, very realistically dreamy whimsy *wink*

❝At first, dreams seem impossible, then improbable, and eventually inevitable.❞

THE INSIDER TRUTH OF MATTERS

Forecast for Sunday, September 27th
Aquarius Gibbous Moon; Part 2

★Oracular Overview—and so now all the logical thinking turns into invasively deep feeling…

There’s a high probability, again today, that you’ll require—or even demand—a little (more) alone time.

Take it.

Unapologetically.

Especially if you didn’t, or weren’t able to, yesterday.

Maybe you might not think you need it—take it.

Give yourself a breather…

❝Take a shower, wash off the day. Drink a glass of water. Make the room dark. Lie down and close your eyes. Notice the silence. Notice your heart. Still beating. Still fighting. You made it, after all. You made it, another day. And you can make it one more. You’re doing just fine.❞
——Charlotte Eriksson

Fresh air and a revived perspective might be necessary as you begin to make a clearer sense of your surroundings, and current circumstances. Hell, this holy day might be a strange one indeed—enough to provoke the need for deeper thought, intuitive assessment, or the thoroughly invasive processing of feelings which haven’t been honestly embraced.

The energies are beginning to balance themselves out a bit, considering—however, this will not last, I assure you… it’ll be what it’ll be, though resistance will be futile.

Give yourself the day.

❝The greatest need of our time is to clean out the enormous mass of mental and emotional rubbish that clutters our minds.❞
——Thomas Merton

Perhaps you could take this time to contemplate all the ways you could prepare, practice a reasonable pace of patience, and presence, and continue to create, through, and most certainly despite, the potential upcoming power struggles and transformations these will demand—in direct despite of all the potential force fields and unfolding transmorgrification.

You’ve been through quite a lot already—though the year is hardly over.

Also, allow me to offer you a tiny heads up—Mercury moves into Scorpio today, while Venus will still move through the bold and prideful Leo until October 2nd before moving into dutiful Virgo, and through this squared fixity, and particular zodiacal combination, this suggests that the shadowy insider truth of matters—the whole damn truth and nothing but the truth of matters—the actual truth of matters, of all things, both big and small—may not be what’s entirely available, offered, or shared now and through the first week of October.

Navigating on instinct alone will have to do.

However. Mercury simply moving into Scorpio today should make for heightened, tuned in intuitions… not to mention interesting conversations, should you decide not to navigate today on your own—conversations will likely not be light, or silly, or less than penetrating in some very unapologetic way.

❝I believe that words are strong, that they can overwhelm what we fear when fear seems more awful than life is good.❞

AUTHENTICITY IN ACTION

Forecast for Saturday, September 26th
Aquarius Gibbous Moon

★Oracular Overview—when you’re true to yourself, it all falls into place…

Not gonna lie—today may feel awkward, uncomfortable, strange, or displaced in some way.

It might just be one of those days to go off, go off into the wild, to go it alone, to walk away and take a breather… things have been heavy, and harsh, and hindered, and hefty.

❝In any case you mustn’t confuse a single failure with a final defeat.❞
——F. Scott Fitzgerald, “Tender is the Night”

The moon squares a retrograded Uranus, moving back through the ninth degree of Taurus, associating the energies with the “ability to create inner happiness in dark hours…”¹ and so, at the same time, from an Aquarian perspective, this would associate itself with “mysterious transformation [being] omitted—an embodiment of living in reality… the seer becoming the doer.”²

What would this suggest then?—that authenticity is an ideal, manifested as an action? This would provoke reflective thoughts of accountability…

Are you living in right action with authenticity?

Are you compromising yourself for something—anything!—that is less than reciprocative?

Are you a stranger to your own needs?

Some details to ponder as you wander…

❝Run my dear, from anything that may not strengthen your precious budding wings. Run like hell my dear, from anyone likely to put a sharp knife into the sacred, tender vision of your beautiful heart.❞

TAKING IT SLOWLY, ONE DAY AT A TIME

Forecast for Friday, September 25th
Capricorn Gibbous Moon; Part 2

★Oracular Overview—are you trading one value for another at a higher cost than necessary?…

Here we are, again, feeling through the thick of the heavyweights, as the moon moves through Capricorn, connecting through conjunction to Jupiter, Pluto, and Saturn, one by one…

Also of note—a retrograded Mars is applying a square to Saturn through the twenty-fifth degree… and the moon will illuminate this square today, though its exactness will not occur until Sunday—however, this alone, much more with the tripled conjunctions listed above—lends itself to the potential for a dampening, daunting, or defeating weekend. Ugh.

❝…people with nothing to declare carry the most.❞
——Jonathan Safran Foer

It largely and heavily depends upon your current reality and circumstances… you could accomplish much, on the other hand, if you utilize energies wisely.

There is also an almost tangible feeling of impatience or urgency occurring—again, especially with the building squares between the moon, Mercury, and Mars… and there simply may be no possibility or availability for movement, for speed, for release, or for escape, and so this will likely feel quite frustrating.

Where’s the bright side? I’m so thrilled you’re wondering…

❝The same wind that blows down your house shakes berries from the bushes.❞
——Marci Ridlon

A Capricornian moon, above all else, needs to secure itself and locate value—so what needs to be done to accomplish this?—this is up to you entirely.

What needs to be done—most importantly—first?—before everything else, or next… don’t worry yourself with all of the steps thereafter right now—focus on what needs to be accomplished now.

What is the «value» to be found in accomplishing what needs to be done?

It is also of priority import to consider now—where are you overexerting or overextending yourself?—and where is this taking its toll on your reality or resources?—not just finances, but your time and energy efforts, as well.

❝Action expresses priorities.❞
——Mahatma Gandhi

LIVING, BREATHING DETAILS

Forecast for Thursday, September 24th
Capricorn Gibbous Moon

★Oracular Overview—the strategic planning of reality…

Let’s talk strategy today, shall we?

Derived from the Greek word ‘stratēgía’ meaning ‘generalship’, derived from ‘ágein’, meaning ‘to lead’… a strategy is a word commonly employed when regarding the preparations of “a plan, method, or series of maneuvers for obtaining a specific goal or result…” and through a military perspective, “the utilization, during both peace and war, of all of a nation’s forces, through large-scale, long-range planning and development, to ensure security or victory.”

If you were to pinpoint a theme toward the strategy of how you lead your life—what might it be?

❝Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?❞
——Mary Oliver

Mercury and Mars continue to collaborate in opposition, exacted, in fact, early this morning through the twenty-sixth degree, which would suggest that “in the situation facing you, there is most likely a need to mix, and integrate, the principle of the will with the principle of the emotions… this symbolizes having the will and the strength to come down to earth after incredible or gravity-defying experiences, even if we don’t want to—or don’t feel ready to… there is probably a need for calm objective observation—sailing above difficulties may bring new information to light; things that you weren’t meant to see, or know, previously.”*

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

Coming back down to reality, as it is, will likely require an integrated strategy… and potential need, or demand, for necessary adjustments.

The word ‘integrate’ derives from the Latin word ‘integrātus’ meaning ‘to renew, restore’… thereby, to integrate is ‘to bring together or incorporate (parts) into a whole; to make up, combine, or complete to produce a whole or a larger unit, as parts do; to unite or combine.’

So, in other words, what two (or more) separate idea(l)s or goals or living, breathing details are you renewing by bringing them together into a whole, as something of a workable strategy?

Today is a day to think your integrative potentials… and create something new with them.

❝He had the charm of all people who believe implicitly in themselves, that of integration.❞

CONJURING THE AUTHORITY WITHIN

Forecast for Wednesday, September 23rd
Capricorn 1st Quarter Moon

★Oracular Overview—if you feel something, say something…

There’s a continued need for balance again today, perhaps quite literally.

Today may also be one of those days through which an extremely difficult, straining, pinpointing, and vulnerable conversation emerges… matters which are hard or hurtful to talk about with an/Other could open to you—whether you’re willing or not.

❝When you come to a fork in the road, take it.❞
——Yogi Berra

Speak up.

Conjure your inner voice—your honest authority. Listen. Trust. And vocalize your needs.

Capricornian energies have been ongoing for months now, though today—these energies will become pronounced—likely through communications within your relationships—possibly even through relationships you have with others which require, demand, prefer, or suggest more rigidly defined boundaries; relationships with elders, employers, employees, professors, or colleagues… and the like of those in your peer group—any exchange, really, but particularly those within dynamics of hierarchy, status, or power dynamic occurring.

Maybe it’ll be an issue regarding these boundaries. Or perhaps the issue will involve an imbalance needing to be balanced… and either way, the conversation may reek of discomfort—but it’ll be necessary.

Part of the lesson to be learned through this moon is the sustaining of your stance—whether you’re initiating the conversation or receiving it—despite the difficulty, derailment, denial, or disregard… despite the potential devastation.

Despite it all. Hold your ground. Stay firm. Changes need to be made.

❝Since no one can ever know for certain whether or not his own view of life is the correct one, it is absolutely impossible for him to know if someone else’s is the wrong one.❞
——Gore Vidal

The degree though which this first quartered moon occurs associates itself with “leadership issues… [and] a loss of faith, hope and trust…”¹

Further, “sometimes we need to rise to the occasion and take charge, and this is most likely one of those times—this can lead to a struggle for control… are those above you reminding you of the lesser position you occupy?—internal authority [may need to be conjured] by believing in yourself…” and if this is the case, it might be best to go your own way.

At the same time, “even with the best of thoughts, emotions, and intentions, it might take months or years to truly heal the devastating effect that’s been unleashed.”¹

This is also a moon through which shamanic astrologer Raven Kaldera titles the “Miner’s Moon—a moon when we consider all the ways we want respect from other people and the methods that we use to achieve this… we also think about the ways we have interrupted and sabotaged our own success to chase after quicker and less ethical roads…”²

❝Muhammad, Buddha, Jesus, and Moses all went to the desert as nobodies and came back as somebodies… the desert is the most incredible place, because there is nothing there except yourself, and yourself is a big deal.❞
——Marina Abramovi

These changes needing to be made will likely center around the necessity for a re-centering, or realignment… a balancing out of something—though your voice will need to come through, however firmly you can manage it.

Please understand, that it is not only your voice that matters here… dyadic communication is necessary now.

In keeping your eye on the prize, through a tortoise mentality—maintaining a mature composure through these energies shouldn’t be as difficult as they could otherwise be in these predicaments.

All around, it’s a very Saturnian-feeling day, however oxymoronic that may read… furthermore, as Rudhyar expresses this degree through what I consider an absolute nod to the honest essence of Saturn, “a time comes in many lives when the individual finds himself placed in a situation that allows him to assume power… however limited this power may be—is he ready to do this effectively and responsibly?—this is the supreme test of man in society.”³

❝A single ego is an absurdly narrow vantage point from which to view the world.❞
——Aleister Crowley

Self-authorship is emerging through you in regard to an/Other, and the collective at large, in big ways…

How will you use yours to illustrate your authenticity, to pursue your ideal, to manifest your bluer than blue horizons?

❝Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?❞
——Mary Oliver

PINPOINTING THE IMPORTANT

Forecast for Tuesday, September 22nd
Sagittarius Crescent Moon

★Oracular Overview—pinpointing the important will likely be necessary, though any need to be right may pinpoint underlying issues within…

Today is the autumnal equinox, which represents both the harvest, and its abundant rewards—but also the reaping of all we’ve previously sown.

For better or worse—this can be both furthering in its rewards, or harsh.

With the moon in ideological Sagittarius and the sun now moving through the cardinality of balancing Libra, today may be something of a battle… the need to be right—and thereby righteous *eye roll*—may entirely overshadow the essential importance of empathy and the current emphases regarding the abundant inaccuracies of duality.

Striving to be right, and righteous, to be holy or respected or better or above an/Other—especially over an/Other’s ‘wrongness’ or dishonor—would be a severe misuse of today’s energies… as the reality may be particularly harsh—whatever it is that’s ‘wrong’ exists within you, as well.

We need to work together—in all ways.

Division is ruining us.

Instead, using today’s energies to pinpoint the important and sideline the unimportant… this could prove to be much more effective.

Ultimately, it is likely that the Mars/Saturn square influence will overwhelm the ordinarily upbeat and lunarly Sagittarian energies by quite a lot, and this heaviness will need to be accounted for, but also carried.

However. It’s also quite likely that you may not want to pick any of it up yet, or, if otherwise forced or obligated—you may not have much yet to share of it… not yet.

❝Anything less than a conscious commitment to the important is an unconscious commitment to the unimportant.❞
