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.❞
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.❞
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.❞
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.❞
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?❞
