SOMETHING ALTOGETHER DIFFERENT

Forecast for Friday, January 1st 2021
Leo Disseminating Moon


ॐOracular Mantra—new beginnings, making sense, emotional discernment, and personal accountability–welcome to 2021…

They say that the moon smells like exploded firecrackers… and this year, upon this brand new year to begin again, the moon is in celebratory Leo—the zodiacal equivalent of a firecracker exploded.

Let us celebrate the No Longer of our past… and the ending of a very unrelenting year, a year that smells of ash.

It’s a brand new year, friends and folks, let us celebrate its promise… today marks a fresh new beginning to begin again, to begin anew—to simply begin.

Resolutions may feel hopeful this year… or preemptively jaded—but more likely, your goals will feel inspired and achievable, despite it all—which is precisely the attitude to hold.

You can achieve your ideal, you can—it’s just gotta make sense.

Last year’s new year post was a bit jaded from the beginning, as astrologers had largely already gleaned the oncoming traffic and its potential complications—and simply trying to word our forecasts appropriately, and hope-fully, became something of a daily challenge…

❝Vinegar poured on me all my life; I am well marinated; how can I be honey now?❞
——Tillie Olsen

We’re still living in very confusing times—it’s natural to feel overwhelmed, or confounded, or perplexed, or bewildered… though it’s still incredibly important to maintain your merriment—especially now.

Facts and fictions remain misleading, and will for awhile, and you can quite likely feel this… and it’s probably pretty uncomfortable.

What seems implied simply may not be so… and what is might still not be very clear, or understandable yet.

These potential confusions could entice you or entrance you to feel much more into either irrational or irrelevant information than is obvious to anyone else—intuition is one thing, truly, but projecting fears, expectations, and irrational anxieties onto something or someone entirely unrelated, or better yet, paranoid excuses that (in)directly serve you… this is something altogether different.

In fact, it’s possible, specifically because of the current vaguenesses within the facts and fictions, between the real and unreal, that you may not even fully understand your own feelings at this time.

Not yet.

❝But to my questions he gave replies so vague that one could not tell whether they came from the mountains or the sea.❞
——Sōseki Natsume

Today’s energies are asking you to rise to the occasion—to rise to the occasion of new beginnings… to beginning anew—to begin walking toward your bluer than blue horizons within your Not Yet.

Again, you can achieve your ideal, you really can—it’s just gotta make sense.

How you express yourself now, and express your feelings, is powerful—however confusing—and may send you upon an extravagant journey deeper into yourself, into your higher self, and further into your higher mind—into the truest inner motivations of your ideals.

Try not to jump to conclusions.

Try not to harbor expectations.

Try not to consider that any ‘rights’ or ‘wrongs’ have any stance within your current circumstances, or within the collective at large, and really try not to need to be righteously ‘right’…

Try to notice or create win-win-win scenarios.

Try to hold yourself accountable for both your thoughts and actions.

Try to focus your efforts, this year and beyond, upon the integral steps between where you currently stand and your overall ideals—connecting these dots with the strings of limitlessness, and the boundaries of only the very best… the stuff of real joy and authenticity.

❝If you really wanna fly, learn to befriend the winds.❞
——Curtis Tyrone Jones

Happy New Year, friends—you’ve got this… be audacious.

BUILDING OPPORTUNITIES

Forecast for Thursday, December 31st
Cancer/Leo Disseminating Moon


ॐOracular Mantra—unexpected opportunities are everywhere, if you are patient…

Void of course for up to the first half of the day* before moving into Leo, to almost immediately oppose Jupiter and Saturn, now in Aquarius, for the first time in quite some time…

This new opposition, which will now begin occurring on a monthly basis, would suggest that a new approach to something might be necessary, or simply advantageous to you—and as the sun, which has an indirect influence toward this opposition, is in Capricorn—likely an approach which initiates new authority in some way.

❝Look back, look forth, look close—there may be more prosperous times, more intelligent times, more spiritual times, more magical times, and more happy times—but this one, this small moment in the history of the universe, this is ours… let’s do everything with it. Everything.❞
——Jean-Paul Sartre

This opposition will be something you will notice evolving, as next month the sun will be in Aquarius while the moon moves through Leo, and then Pisces the month after that, and so on… you could consider this an opportunity in approaching the building of something that continues to work for you through the year.

Still, in participating with this constructively monthly energy, it is essential to recognize just that: it will require your participation.

This month, however, simultaneously, the moon also squares Uranus in Taurus, and connects to Chiron in Aries by trine, as Venus connects to the South Node in Sagittarius… reevaluations of particular dynamics could be necessary as potentially unexpected wounding or otherwise off-putting, or painful responses, reactions, or rallying thereof could provoke even the most reasonable of feelings—it would be somewhat easy to become nasty or irritable… try to rise above.

Otherwise, should you be mindfully prepared for literally anything, today could reward your efforts in unexpected opportunity… though you may have to squint your eyes a bit down the road to see it that way.

❝Luck is when an opportunity comes along and you’re prepared for it.❞
——Denzel Washington

AN INTEGRATION OF BLESSINGS

Forecast for Wednesday, December 30th
Cancer Disseminating Moon


ॐOracular Mantra—to integrate is to be whole, or to resemble or reflect wholeness, and further, to be necessary to the completeness of the whole…

The most subtle or severe of sentiments may be demanding a blessing…

You are continuing to move forward into new fronts and new territories—being introduced to new experiences—and as you continue navigating yourself through new-ness you will be expected to be open.

❝It takes a lot of courage to show your dreams to someone else.❞
—— Erma Bombeck

This does not always immediately imply that you will need to forfeit the past—but rather, to integrate these two concepts together, as one, as something entirely new, as to more appropriately serve your authentic ideal.

Still, as the moon moves through Cancer, even a less threatening or entirely non-threatening concept of integration may feel a bit threatening, or frustrating, offensive or unkind…

❝Let go of certainty. The opposite isn’t uncertainty—it’s openness, curiosity and a willingness to embrace paradox, rather than choose up sides. The ultimate challenge is to accept ourselves exactly as we are, but never stop trying to learn and grow.❞
——Tony Schwartz

To think—or, rather, to feel—through the possibilities of it… all of these new sentiments to save and secure as sacred!

As today’s moon oscillates between an opposition with Mercury and later, applying all day and exacting beyond midnight, with Pluto—there could be some inner or outer conflictions still needing addressed, confronted, discussed, or even finalized…

Feel from within the inner strength to open to these possibilities, regardless of how problematic they have been, or seem to feel… protection, at least for today, has nothing on preparedness, or the pangs of inner motivations; much like fear—quite honestly, always—has nothing on an inner will.

It might be more constructive to assess the source of any feelings of threat—to confront these feelings and appropriately reassign them to better support you as you begin to open to navigating the new experiences within your new reality.

If the source is fear—confront it… and you are free.

If the source is love—open to it.

See?—either way leads to an opening. There’s your blessing.

❝When someone is seeking, it happens quite easily that he only sees the thing that he is seeking; that he is unable to find anything, unable to absorb anything, because he is only thinking of the thing he is seeking, because he has a goal, because he is obsessed with his goal. Seeking means: to have a goal; but finding means: to be free, to be receptive, to have no goal. You, O worthy one, are perhaps indeed a seeker, for in striving towards your goal, you do not see many things that are under your nose.❞
——Hermann Hesse

FEELING LIFE WITHIN LONGING

Forecast for Tuesday, December 29th
Cancer Full Moon at 8°53′


ॐOracular Mantra—Life consists of a collection of collateral beauty–and with all of its avoidably sentimental sadness, subtlety, and solace, and all of its varying ups and downs, its meaning is yours to honor, and enjoy…

The moon is powerful now and feelings are inclined to feel heightened, almost hypersensitive, and will likely feel provoked in one way or another, attuned—seemingly—to the very tides of the ocean and the heartbeat of the universe itself.

With this feeling of cosmic attunement is something of a personal responsibility—if even only through an honest acknowledgement of it and its vulnerabilities—this attunement of alignment both highlights and illuminates an inner longing, emerging from deep, deep, deep within the psyche…

❝My friend, care for your psyche… know thyself, for once we know ourselves, we may learn how to care for ourselves.❞
——Socrates

A full moon in Cancer is squishy, squishy territory.

And this full moon in Cancer is also in connection to Chiron…

Happiness isn’t a state toward which to strive to eliminate longing… happiness happens—it ebbs and flows.

The squishiest source of all your inner contentment can be found and secured through your own inner creative spirit.

When one ignores the inner creative spirit, many illusions upon others’ dreams and ideals are pursued, ultimately in futility, lending one, naturally, toward the craving and desiring further toward that which isn’t meant to be. Longing, typically, in a spiritual, cosmic, energetic or etheric sense, is experienced toward that which cannot be seen, or touched, or ever, ever captured… and this is what is overwhelmingly known as pain, or sadness, or dis-ease.

Are you clinging to No Longer? Are you trying to control your fate through the resistance of What Is?

If something is provoking pain, sadness, endless difficulty, or dis-ease—it, quite simply, is not for you, and forcing whatever it is will only perpetuate the hollowness, vacancy, and unfulfilling longing being experienced unnecessarily.

It is understood that one’s inner longing is one’s consciousness longing for itself, for it’s own authenticity and creative spirit spark to be recognized, acknowledged, and honored through living in action, truly, and honestly… and this is what is often so easily misunderstood, by both an individual and collective level—this longing, when finally expressed, is what enlightened fulfillment is… and it is cosmic fulfillment which is enhancing and expanding, all-encompassing and embodies, fully, one’s entire Beingness.

❝The bounty of nature is also one of the deep needs of man.❞
——Lady Bird Johnson

Like the vastness of the ocean—one’s true soul potential is without bounds «when actively and honestly expressed by one’s inner light through honoring and living one’s personal truth» and absolutely only this is all it is.

There are so many ways through which we avoid, deny, resist, repress, or project our true needs and authentic desires… because we are conditioned to doubt abundance and fear or avoid our creative strength, and reject our inner voice, deny our spark, and resist our Truth—and today’s moon is inspiring you, by illuminating your longing so that it may no longer remain silent, or be invisible, or feel unfamiliar or lacking, as though without.

Today’s moon is asking you to honestly and fearlessly feel through whatever your circumstances are, to feel the feelings of everyone within your reality… to really feel through it all, beyond yourself, and to do what is necessary to wholly understand the real meaning behind your longing, and your personal obligation to both your reality and your longing.

Please understand, this moon isn’t about feeling your own feelings—you’re always doing that, it’s all we ever do.

This moon is begging you to acknowledge a deeper understanding of what «is» and «is not» possible to reach… life itself is beckoning you to live it, despite it all.

❝I dwell in possibility…❞
——Emily Dickinson

ACKNOWLEDGING & ALLOWING

Forecast for Monday, December 28th
Gemini Gibbous Moon; Part 2


ॐOracular Mantra—feeling, acknowledging, allowing, arranging, loving, and releasing…

There’s a more seriously obvious divide between No Longer and Not Yet creeping into your reality and radically transforming it.

Feel it.

Acknowledge it.

Allow it.

Arrange space for it.

Love it.

Release it.

❝If we can just let go and trust that things will work out the way they’re supposed to, without trying to control the outcome, then we can begin to enjoy the moment more fully. The joy of the freedom it brings becomes more pleasurable than the experience itself.❞
——Goldie Hawn

The moon connects to the North Node at 19° Gemini, suggesting that you need not allow these feelings to take you over or control you… suggesting that you simply need to allow yourself to experience it all in its light and Truth.

Your intuition and instincts are guiding you, however subtly… “you may experience intuitive ‘wisdom’ that seems to be generated outside your own experiences…”¹ and I would suggest you be open to this.

❝You often meet your fate on the road you take to avoid it.❞
——Goldie Hawn

Further, and perhaps most importantly, it is within such a “progressive world we look so often for new ideas and new solutions… traditional knowledge can seem irrelevant to the present—but in truth it is something we often need in our lives—the knowledge behind these beliefs or rituals can be as relevant today as it has always been… it is, however, often important «to update the way we view and use traditional wisdom—this may be what is needed» in this situation.”¹ («» mine)

The lunarly connections to the Nodes, in general, both indicate and suggest the inclination and likelihood toward new experiences and absorbing new perspectives on your everyday reality… as Neptune continues to apply the Nodes by square through these lunarly influences one adds and emphasizes the need to trust the unknowable unknowns, and to allow all lack of clarity—to embrace that which you do not yet understand as you naturally default and refer back toward that which you can, or do, or might.

These energies all simply an effort to expose you to a new way of balancing any remaining rigidities you’re continuing to allow or rely on.

❝Mindful awareness is simply paying attention to what is happening now. In doing nothing other than living in the moment for a few minutes, we can let thoughts and feelings come and go without holding on to them or judging them.❞
——Goldie Hawn

Please be patient with yourself—and try to reflect back to a time you learned to do something new for the first time… and then remember how many times you’ve likely altered how you do it, now that you more completely understand the subtleties and complexities of that activity—but you’ve got to start somewhere.

“Learn to take the best from the past, as it is useful for providing answers and clues to modern life problems… however, let go of any old and outworn beliefs that are holding you back.”¹

Feel it.

Acknowledge it.

Allow it.

Arrange space for it.

Love it.

Release it.

Through these mindful integrations within your new reality, you are, as Rudhyar explains and expresses it, “develop[ing] new capacities for experience that may enable [you] to tap the vast reservoir of the planetary mind of Man—to the common man [you may] appear to speak a foreign tongue… experienc[ing] a process of insulation; yet [you are] never really alone—here and there [you] find those who can understand [you].”²

❝Life is a dance with the cosmos.❞

MINDFUL EFFORTS IN LISTENING

Forecast for Sunday, December 27th
Gemini Gibbous Moon


ॐOracular Mantra—to listen mindfully to both words and meaning, to inner motivations, nuance and depth: is to understand and empathize rather than merely hear…

Something needs to be said.

Oracular overtures recommend, today, that “if the cause is worthy or timely and your communications are clear, you will be heard by those who resonate with your message, and your influence will spread…”¹

However.

It is still imperative to think before speaking, or sharing, stammering, stating, spreading, or even satirizing…

My advice would be to say what you mean and mean what you say—if, and only if, you’re directly experiencing what you intend to communicate.

❝…they speak great swelling words of emptiness…❞
——2 Peter 2:18

However.

It might still be, however bewilderingly or complicating, a matter of either not actually being or simply not feeling heard, or perhaps it is someone else who is not listening.

Try to make mindful efforts in listening—it’s really all you can do.

Astrologer Dane Rudhyar suggests that there is potential for “a passionate response to a deeply felt new experience…”²

❝I’m not really who I said I was, or who I thought I’d be…❞
——Ani DiFranco; “The True Story of What Was” lyrics

Truly, new experiences both require and deserve time to fully process and explore, to question and to share, to truly and honestly experience and to authentically respond…

Further, “what has been “discovered” not only needs to be discussed and tested through an intellectual exchange which permits its formulation, it also demands “exteriorization” …which implies the act of dealing with those who are still unaware of the new knowledge or realization—what is at stake is a process of communication of new experiences.”²

❝The unexamined life is not worth living.❞
——Socrates

Be prepared to be somewhat alone within this experience… to not be fully heard, or understood, or even recognized or recognizable as you navigate yourself through the lessons of this experience—however, I would advise you to seek a deeper meaning, a deeper meaning which resonates for you…

Some things are not meant to be understood by all.

DEVELOPING INNER SECURITY

Forecast for Saturday, December 26th
Taurus/Gemini Gibbous Moon


ॐOracular Mantra—you’ve everything you need, always…

Void of course for much of the day, the Taurus moon can stubbornly influence either a calming understanding, an understood albeit stubbornly nervy calm… or an influenced resistance.

May you be experiencing an understanding and calm… but may you also be open to possess at least a pinch of nerve.

Additionally, once the moon moves into Gemini, a connection to both Jupiter and Saturn, now in Aquarius, will be applied and exacted—which may offer ‘an unexpected thunderstorm…’

By degree, astrologer Dane Rudhyar suggests a strong inclination now toward “the need to develop the inner security which will enable [you] to meet unexpected crises… at any rate, it refers to an event for which one is not prepared—a menace to men’s works.”

Remain what Rudhyar calls ‘pure in heart’. Despite it all.

To be pure in heart is an inner security in and of itself.

Today is also a day to reflect upon all your blessings and feel gratitude, despite whatever circumstances you’ve overcome, whatever circumstances you’re currently navigating, or enduring, and whatever circumstances you’re preparing to venture toward…

May you be fearlessly and unapologetically courageous in both heart and mind.

❝It’s not enough to be nice in life. You’ve got to have nerve.❞

UNWRAPPING GIFTS OF GRACE

Forecast for Friday, December 25th
Taurus Gibbous Moon; Part 2


ॐOracular Mantra—who exactly do you think you are?–and are you who you expected to become?…

You are being asked to delicately and honestly consider who you are, as the sun squares Chiron exactly at 4°59′ through Capricorn toward Aries—and as this is a cardinal square it is strongly and aggressively suggested that you might be only beginning to uncover who it is you «really» are…

Much like the process of unwrapping a gift—there is an unfolding occurring within you that is demanding to be discovered.

Truly, this unfolding should be approached eagerly, as you would a gift… though, naturally, this will not come as easily to all.

And sometimes, as with gifts—what’s inside isn’t always what was assumed, expected, or anticipated.

With this current uncovering, and somewhat fated unfolding, and empowering emerging… it is also being asked of you, through this rare and potentially trying holiday season, to rise above any version of yourself continuing to cling to No Longer in any way—to rise above even the best versions of who you are on your best day—these current energies, being brought up a notch or more today, are asking you to rise above your fears, most specifically…

And more—to (finally) face these fears.

❝Don’t sit down and wait for the opportunities to come. Get up and make them.❞
——Madam C.J. Walker

I know. Not the warmest holiday post—and many apologies for this, though I am only translating the signs, not orchestrating them.

On this note, I’m not gonna lie: today may be a bit intense… even if only this intensity is being experienced within because you are beginning to become more aware of who you really are and you know it… but it’ll be more than worth the effort you put into your own exploratory initiations, the naturally consequential healing, and reflectively honest self-empowerment that are inherently derived through this process.

Remember that this is the circumstance your soul chose to evolve through—you are endlessly and celestially supported in your efforts of vulnerability.

❝Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field.
I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass—the world is too full to talk about.❞
——Rumi

Tomorrow the moon will move void of course until mid-afternoon here on the west coast*, and it might feel as though the heavens are actually sighing, or passing through a precious pausing—offering you an extended moment of sacred space—to take everything in…

Much processing will quite likely need to occur, even should you be experiencing joy and merriment, and the awe of grace.

Be gentle with yourself—especially if this holiday season and its details didn’t exactly meet your expectations, traditions, or sentimental soliloquies, and they very likely did not…

Still, perhaps you could try to be open to what the universe «has» wrapped up for you, custom-made just for you and your soul’s delight—likely only hiding behind that pagan-inspired tree, acting as an actual magical talisman of pagan-origin tradition, sacrifice, and symbolism long before the days of Christ or organized religion…

Even if you haven’t decorated the traditional tree and aren’t clamoring underneath mistletoe and powdered sugar—look a bit more audaciously to the signs, remain open to the abundances that «are» right in front of you and all around you rather than tirelessly seeking those which are not there or those which will not fulfill you, and listen a bit more honestly to the whispers of your soul when you’re stumbling a bit more closely to the realms that are rightfully ‘right’ for you.

These current energies, then, being brought up a notch or more today, again, are asking you to consider who you are, to unwrap your inner gifts, to rise above your fears any assumed brokenness, and most specifically… to (finally) face these fears.

To face yourself. To accept the gift of yourself.



Have a merry holiday, filled with bright lights and love… and may the brightest light shine from within you and yours, sending warmth and joy and yuletide blessings, XO JJ

THE PAST, PRESENT & NEW POTENTIALS

Forecast for Thursday, December 24th
Taurus Gibbous Moon


ॐOracular Mantra—releases of potentiality are everywhere…

On December 16, 1773 the moon was in Aquarius, while a Sagittarian sun squared the Nodes, inexactly by only one degree… the moon would be first quartered in days, and then move on to connect to Uranus in conjunction at 24° Taurus on December 25th.

This was the last time the moon connected to Uranus by conjunction in Taurus on Christmas day… until tomorrow (I realize that today is technically the eve of Christmas)—but still.

And though the sun hasn’t recently squared the Nodes, it has, rather, connected by conjunction and opposition, representing something of a rebirth and crisis point; it was only December 11th that the sun connected to the South Node by conjunction, and thereby opposing the North Node, marking just as extreme a Nodal/angular aspecting relationship…

Why is all of this significant?

Because it was on December 16th of 1773—the last time the moon connected to Uranus in Taurus by conjunction—only nine days before the 25th—that the American rebels disguised themselves as Indians and threw 342 chests of British Tea into the Boston Harbor, paving the way for the American Revolution…

❝It’s hard. Wanting the tea, but also not wanting the tea, but feeling like you should want the tea, but knowing you should protest the tea, so you put the protest on the teapot and throw all the tea in the harbor, and the teapot I guess… stays empty?❞
——Katherine Locke

The moon will connect with Uranus by conjunction through the seventh degree of Taurus today, a degree which associates itself to “the meeting of the traditional past and of the creative spirit pointing to the future… the highest meets the lowest when this lowest is free from traditional bonds and open to love—the creative future descends first to that which has become chaos…”

I just found this endlessly fascinating…

As Rudhyar explains, “an old order is never open to a new Revelation until it has accepted disorder in the name of that Power which subsumes all forms of order, i.e. Love… a “meeting” that introduces into the collective situation a totally new factor which transcends it—a new quality of being is revealed which renders the old patterns obsolete.”

Through all of those systems, realities, ‘intolerable acts’ wink wink, and memories of No Longer—a new Now can emerge and exist, much more obviously, thus paving the way for Not Yet.

❝With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts.❞
——Eleanor Roosevelt

Today’s Taurus moon, naturally, squares toward both Jupiter and Saturn, now in Aquarius, for the first time since February 4/5th of 1903; I could find little evidence of noteworthy historical fact that occurred upon these days, however, it was in April of that year that Dr Harry Plotz discovered a vaccine against typhoid…

I can’t help myself, honestly.

Still, this lunarly square, today, suggests, truly and originally, according to Rudhyar, “the pure, uncontaminated and spontaneous manifestation of one’s own nature… here we see life substance in its original dynamic form and as it emerged from its spiritual source—this is true whatever the nature of the source may be—and by all the forces which in the past have formed[,] that is to say, by past history—yet out of this past a new, pure (i.e. unadulterated) release of potentiality has emerged, it is ready to perform whatever work its dharma is to accomplish […] it is flowing irresistibly toward its own destiny.”

We truly have not been here before… and “revelation is implied… at least as a potentiality.”

Interestingly, the Chandra symbol for this recent Jupiter/Saturn conjunction that today’s Taurean moon will illuminate in all practicality of potential—the symbol regarding this conjunction “carries the message that completely opposite ideas can peacefully co-exist, and actually have the potential to enhance and clarify each other.”

May this holiday’s act of rebellion be merry and bright, and pure as the fresh driven snow—bright and pure with potential of a new tomorrow, and a nearing new year.

AN OPENNESS TO THE INFLUX

Forecast for Wednesday, December 23rd
Aries Gibbous Moon; Part 2


ॐOracular Mantra—it’s all happening–try to remain open to it…

Astrologer Dane Rudhyar states that “inner growth demands not just an open mind but one able to provide a container for a spiritual harvest…” or, an “openness to the influx of spiritual energies…”, meaning that despite whatever circumstances one finds oneself in—should one be motivated to remain open to the experience of the circumstances—one will always prevail… and even be rewarded.

Ever so timely and always so celestially conveniently—today’s moon squares back at the heavyweights in Capricorn while simultaneously applying a conjunction to Mars… but furthermore, today’s energies become so easily and grow much more intense as Mars exacts its square to Pluto today from 23°50′ Aries—the moon will illuminate this in its separation.

❝…Because if you take a risk, you just might find what you’re looking for.❞
——Susane Colasanti

Aggressiveness—when supported by love and discerning motivations of protection, authenticity, or good intention otherwise—may be what’s necessary today to move beyond stagnation, or to elude exaggerated conflict or contentiousness.

Please do not misunderstand—I mean to translate an understanding of aggressive motivation, not violent aggressions: big difference.

Further, this potentially suggestive aggressiveness could come into play through words, rather than actions, or possibly both—depending upon how these energies are manifesting for you… especially so, should you need to communicate needs not being met, or feelings being abused, refused, ignored, or repressed.

❝When you have something to do life will not allow you to move foward until you do it.❞
——Iyanla Vanzant

As Mars exacts its final square to Pluto from Aries, while the moon illuminates this energy, and as Mercury squares Chiron from the controls of Capricorn… it is essential to tune into your truest inner motivations now, especially as you move or motion to take firm forward movements—making a move merely to make a move now would not be recommended.

However, in experiencing that inner underlying urgency to act, or to stand, or to move into your own power now, either toward something much larger than yourself or for your own self-empowered becoming—please remain open to the experience, and everything it is offering you.

❝We must be willing to get rid of the life we’ve planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us.❞
——Joseph Campbell
