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…❞
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.❞
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.❞
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.
