WHAT IS MENTIONABLE…

Forecast for Monday, February 1st
Libra Disseminating Moon


ॐOracular Mantra—being honestly aware of the matters at hand; mentionability is manageability…

Author and ‘Rune Soup’ podcast host Gordon White has said in one of his episodes that “there is a trauma and cowardice in not looking at [the matter at hand]—you don’t have to fix it but you do have to be aware of it…” and I think that this statement, though I’ve mindfully managed to directly miscontextualize, is quite succinct for today.

Mercury stationed retrograde yesterday at 26° Aquarius, through a degree which associates itself toward “an indication of how deeply technology involves us in small matters, yet matters which in some circumstances could make the difference between life and death…” which, specifically speaking—as this is Mercury, upon a retrograded experience, in Aquarius no less—is somewhat concerning.

And the Libran moon is overcompensating in a compulsively compulsory effort in balance…

❝Somehow, we’ll find it. The balance between whom we wish to be and whom we need to be. But for now, we simply have to be satisfied with who we are.❞
——Brandon Sanderson

Please understand that I bring this to you and your awareness from a place of love, not fear, for the purposes and practices of awareness alone—though these words of guidance through Rudhyar do express a healthy parcel of pause and precaution.

We simply need to look at the matters at hand. Honestly. And directly.

Continued, Rudhyar stresses “the need for ‘management’ therefore is seen to affect every detail of our individual lives; this applies as well to the complexities of interpersonal, social or political relationships, because our modern society is indeed like a huge machine speeding on dangerous ground; safety depends on available power…”

❝‘I can manage it,’ said Frodo, ‘I must.’❞
——J.R.R. Tolkien

Today’s Libran moon may emphasize a bit of our “most authentic emotions… toward the delicacy of feeling…”

However, thankfully—and always celestially conveniently—the moon today opposes Chiron through the sixth degree, a degree also suggesting so strongly toward what Mr Rogers is so fondly remembered by, one of his mighty mantras being ‘what is mentionable is always manageable’, only further emphasizing and supporting the Mercurial matters mentioned above.

Maintaining your equilibrium now would be best. It’s all a balance.

And better yet, beyond an effort of equilibrium—if you can talk about what needs managed, it can be managed—likely so through the cooperation and collaboration of others… however, most fundamentally—be honest with yourself in your own awareness to it, even if you can’t manage to fix it at this point in time.

❝If we don’t manage to connect the dots anymore and the power of our imagination is creaking at the seams, in a world of withering expectations, we have to rewrite the script of our life—into a new life.❞
——Erik Pevernagie

WARPING & WEFTING

Forecast for Sunday, January 31st
Virgo Disseminating Moon; Part 2


ॐOracular Mantra—pivoting within the patterns of our lives…

We continue to warp and weft as we weave the very fabric of our lives and it is now becoming much more obvious that something of an established pattern has been present all along, yes?

The very process of weaving requires both warping and wefting—one being stationary (the warp), the other as filler (the weft).

The word ‘weft’ derives from the Old English word wefan, ‘to weave’. Warp means ‘that which is thrown away’.

❝They say you start weaving clearer, sharper memories after you’ve been to a place at least twice—because then the reflection is more of validation.❞
——Psyche Roxas-Mendoza

Creatively, and quite metaphorically—weave with me here—the necessary quotidian mundanity of our lives is the warp, as it largely remains the same… it is the structure of the weave; the weft, however, is the personal authenticity that we individually weave into the structures of our entirely unique lives.

We create our realities. Everyday. What are you creating?

That which is thrown away, then, could refer to the conditioning and mind-numbing irrelevancies and negativities we could stand to let go of, stand up to, or entirely eliminate in action.

The details matter now, and particularly today, as the detail-oriented moon moves into a conjunction with Juno, in tandem with a mutable cross involving Neptune and the Nodes… the details may feel, or actually be, a bit fuzzy these days—but there will be opportunities to take action, regardless of timidity, and begin pivoting the pattern.

❝Our lives were a complex tapestry, and our woven strands were only meant to intersect at a small number of points in the time-conceived whole. An embroidered starburst, a missed warp, a complicated notion on the loom of time.❞
——Courtney M. Privett

Further, as Mercury stations retrograde today, in the sign of Aquarius—a sign very much centered within concepts of personal accountability—it would stand to reason that this retrograde period could repercussively invite, complicate, or create ‘opportunities’ to realign yourself with your own established authenticity—to pivot, potentially—in an effort to hold you accountable for the talking and the walking, if you will.

Are you walking your talk?—are you warping and wefting the weave of your pattern?

Are you setting an example for others the authenticity you feel called to share?—is your pattern expressing a weave that others will be drawn to, and want to learn to weave themselves?

Are you holding yourself personally accountable for the sharing of your unique gifts and skills?—is your patterned weave worth sharing?

❝The process of weaving a tapestry connects with something primal in our experience as dexterous creatures. There is something sensuous and attractive about tapestry weaving. Its slow rhythm has a very peaceful, repetitive quality to it. And the step-by-step problem-solving nature of the process brings a sense of accomplishment and allows a gentle reconnection with self. The depth of color in a simple piece of yarn, the endless variations of expression when colors are woven next to each other, and the accomplishment of a finished expression that represents something important to you.❞

WHAT A WONDER: TO WONDER AT ALL

Forecast for Saturday, January 30th
Virgo Disseminating Moon


ॐOracular Mantra—remembering the magic within and all around…

The sacred simplicities of the magic, mysteries, metaphysical manifestations and phenomenology within the cosmos and here on this very plane of consciousness of dimensionality often seem so faraway, or out of reach—and truly, we are often, to the chagrin of our soul, conditioned to believe that it is all for naught…

❝Children see magic because they look for it.❞
——Christopher Moore

Try to reflect back to the very first snowfall you can recall witnessing—not even as a child, should your first snowfall viewing have occurred at 32 because you grew up somewhere in the world where it never snows—or the first falling star, or the aurora borealis, or the Milky Way… try to reflect back to how these phenomena manifesting before your own eyes made you feel.

When people tell me they ‘don’t believe in’ magic—I wonder, perhaps, they’ve never witnessed these events? Maybe they’ve never witnessed a birth, or embraced death itself in their arms, or climaxed in toe-curled orgasmic bliss—maybe they’ve never vulnerably uttered or boldly proclaimed “I love you” and felt the very energy of the ether sway and bend through the reciprocity of intentioned connection… maybe they’ve never stood in awe at the foot of a mountain majestic, gasping for the next breath at 11,000 feet of that mountain—felt any attachments held so tightly back in the workaday world fall and float away…

❝And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places—those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.❞
—— Roald Dahl

All of Nature exists within cycles and process… and there is magic within the process of all things, big and small—it is embedded within the very fabric of our physical realm through the connectivities of the cosmos: this is magic in its purest form.

Today, may you slow downv and smell the roses, notice the stars, witness something profound, or simply embrace the moments within your time to wonder at the very awe it is that you’re alive.

Today’s moon connects to both Uranus and Mars, from Virgo, in ways which accelerate the possibility that “there can be an unveiling of mysteries, long protected by secrecy…”

❝The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.❞
——W.B. Yeats

Though, as with everything, there must be a balance, as these natural highs we have just by thinking them into existence, or those we have on command—through the lunarly connections by degree, there could easily be an inclination toward “the sense that one may become addicted to the excitement of the merry-go-round of vital emotions and may become a slave to the hope of recapturing the exultation of the initial experiences; yet one may learn how to put to use even the emptiness of waiting…”

❝…disbelief in magic can force a poor soul into believing in government and business….❞
——Tom Robbins

The ‘emptiness of waiting’… what do you suppose Rudhyar meant by this expression?—to wonder if the emptiness of waiting referred to the ignorance of never taking the time to acknowledge the existence of magic all around, in all directions?—and being introduced, what was always mysterious, or protected by secrecy, as if for the first time witnessing snowfall, or falling stars, or the Milky Way itself… to ‘put to use’ one’s inner magic—to begin to remember the limitlessness of possibility one possesses within one’s own thoughts.

Today, as opposed to any other random day, you may open more willingly to an otherwise seemingly destined offer of possibility… may you open to your own magic, the magic within yourself, as well as—and in tandem to—the magic that exists all around you.

May you open to the possibility of something more. Always. Because there’s always more… but there is a process to acknowledge, honor, and uphold, and never squander—and as you open to the re-examining and reorganizing and reprioritizing your own insights and preferences, procedures, and methods—this process could feel as delightful and awe-worthy as seeing snowfall or falling stars for the very first time.

What a wonder—to wonder at all… the universe will bend for you.

❝Magic is believing in yourself, if you can do that, you can make anything happen.❞
——Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

THE JOY OF LIVING IS TO BE ALIVE

Forecast for Friday, January 29th
Leo Disseminating Moon


ॐOracular Mantra—finding the simple phenomena of all things…

Maybe yesterday’s forecast read more like a how-to manual?—how to remember to enjoy all this little things, despite it all… if only.

Because we’re here to experience joy.

Perhaps the potential disconnect for you, should you have read yesterday’s post with little personal comparison or resonance—perhaps you’re experiencing the in-between of Life?

Sometimes it feels as if we’re ‘on pause’ from our own lives… and it can be a bit disorienting, discouraging, or defeating.

It’s interesting to think, too—especially if the Leo moon lacked a resonance, because, if it did, today’s post will mean little to you: continue on—that the very essence of Leo energies is joy.

❝We ate well and cheaply and drank well and cheaply and slept well and warm together and loved each other.❞
——Ernest Hemingway

Leo is joy, and play, and pleasure, and leisure… Leo celebrates, inspires, conjures, and enjoys. Leo is authentic and comfortability. Leo is that reeeally good feeling when we’re experiencing something good, or something that reminds us that we’re alive, or something that we know we’ll remember for decades, if not forever.

The joy of living Life itself!—is to simply be alive…

Leo is the sheer and honestly innocent delight of being alive.

And our souls came here to experience just that: life within a body, within a physical realm, to feel all the feelings.

The soul came here to experience it all—not just Joy.

❝It is poetry that I want now… long poems, I want the concentration, and the romance, and the words all glued together, fused, glowing.❞
——Virginia Woolf

And so my point of translation for you today is to allow the natural flow of wherever it is you are on your journey, and try to enjoy it… today is a day to begin managing this notion.

Maybe make a game out of whatever you’re begrudgingly navigating, or unwind any egoic urge to struggle—and simply be.

Today’s energies struggle between what’s obvious, or logical, or very clearly ‘the path of least resistance…’ and what’s responsively emotional, or personal, or flaring on the dramatic—remember that despite Leo being the Actor of the zodiac, these ‘roles’ are temporary, released when the curtain drops, and all in good fun.

Whatever it is you’re tackling—you may hold what you’re perceiving as an instinct to resist it, or be threatened by it, or overwhelmed, or excessively challenged…

❝I don’t want to produce a work of art that the public can sit and suck aesthetically… I want to give them a blow in the small of the back to scorch their indifference, to startle them out of their complacency.❞
——Ingmar Bergman

But really, it’s but a scene in the overall documentary that is You—and you might even look back and think: wow, this is really when things began to pivot.

Remember that actors act for fun—it brings them joy.

Drama for drama sake is never fun, and if you’re centered and in alignment—drama won’t be able to find you, or impact you in the same ways that previously held you back.

❝Nothing wrong when a song ends in a minor key…❞
——Fiona Apple; “Werewolf” lyrics

Not all movies end on an up note.

They’re not supposed to.

Some films or exhibits of art have you reeling and feeling in thought for days; the soul delights in that—it’s what it came here to do.

THIS IS QUITE BECOMING

Forecast for Thursday, January 28th
Leo Full Moon at 9°05′


ॐOracular Mantra—unraveling, becoming, and emerging into your new weightless Beingness…

The understanding of flow, structures, spirit, and deeper inner meaning—this is what today’s lunar event perpetuates and celebrates.

Flow and structure—these are quite oppositional at first glance, however, that ‘sweet spot’ between the two, the balance… needs to be found toward these oppositional forces, to eliminate the imbalance—both within yourself and beyond.

You are changing. You are being changed. Change is becoming you.

❝The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.❞
——Albert Einstein

It is important, if not imperative, to understand that the only constancy, of course, is change, and that letting go to that which no longer serves you is essential to your overall benefit. As well as acknowledging more honestly that which triggers you can be a naturally sounding alarm to you, however unsentimental this may be. Triggers, however irrational or inconvenient, displeasing or disruptive, are alarms—they are signals for much needed adjustment—just as a t-square aspecting alignment is, which is what is occurring today, only further emphasizing that which has the inclination to trigger you…

Today’s Leo moon, naturally, opposes the Aquarius sun, and as the sun is connected to Jupiter in conjunction at exactly 9°, inspiring an urgency “to “see” the new archetype… to perceive the new standard of value with one’s mind is not enough—the seer must become the doer—the impersonal is dynamized and brought into focus… we have here the acting out of the vision…” and while both the sun/Jupiter conjunction and moon are squaring Mars as Mars is now separating from its recent conjunction with Uranus in Taurus, creating a loose and loosening t-square—an unraveling through structured flow at its finest…

In other words—some sort of new-ness is emerging…

❝We are not trapped or locked up in these bones. No, no. We are free to change. And love changes us. And if we can love one another, we can break open the sky.❞
——Walter Mosley

This t-square alignment is creating quite the intensity of energy, however underlying—but I would imagine it isn’t underlying at all, but rather confronting and confounding…

T-squares indicate adjustments and these adjustments are indicating an active unfoldment, as an act of individual becoming—as you are connecting with your authenticity and authoring new declarations of your new reality…

You will likely not allow any further obstacles—but obstacles are present.

As you proclaim your ideals and your new truths—you will need to shed some of the weighted, triggering, and no longer necessary details so that you can better serve your ideals, and honor these shadowy triggers by allowing them into that metaphorical mental box in your mind labeled ‘No Longer’.

These triggers, alarms, and overall disruptions emerging, essentially, are making way, or trying to make way, for the inner transformations in store for you.

Along with the concept of letting go is the concept of allowing, and the concept of receiving… again, finding that sweet spot of balance between the structures of reality and the flow of All That Is, the flow of your ideals, the flow of what we’re all really made of… this honors the spirit, and creates our deeper inner meaning, through unfolding… and this is becoming.

Quite becoming, indeed.

❝When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not yet ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny.❞
——Paulo Coelho

This t-square alignment, it is important to realize, is fixed in nature and thereby determined, and structure-focused—seeking mastery over that which is flowing and flexible, as this may not be immediately obvious to you.

So again, as you are connecting with your authenticity and authoring new declarations of your new reality—as you proclaim your ideals and your new truths—your determined bluer than blue horizons will be introduced to flow, or, perhaps your flowing horizons will need to adopt a structure to exist within.

Something really big and truly meaningful to you is emerging and unfolding and becoming something that embodies real potential, and these personally meaningful and unfolding potentials are building your inner character, provoking your gumption to heal, and maybe even the audacity to revise your better judgement—this full moon is literally rocking your world—and with these demands, you’ll need to continue to work on reparations, from within, which will reflectively direct your flow of structure throughout…

In other words—acknowledging your wounds honestly and embracing them in a new, more authentic light… with love—with so much love… as Rumi gently reminded: I know you’re tired but come, this is the way.

❝Love can change a person the way a parent can change a baby—awkwardly, and often with a great deal of mess.❞
——Lemony Snicket

NURTURING FROM WITHIN

Forecast for Wednesday, January 27th
Cancer Gibbous Moon; Part 2


ॐOracular Mantra—taking time to center, in preparation to build…

Perhaps you’re experiencing something of a nesting, in preparation of what’s emerging?

And maybe this nesting is experiencing something of an aggressive delay, an urged obstacle, or a particularly pesky problem?—like in Nature—as if the cosmos is asking you, daringly and directly: how badly do you want this?

This reality we call Life demands participation… and Life itself is love, in motion—to love is to live—and both living and loving require participated nurturing and self-care.

❝Time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.❞
——Marthe Troly-Curtin

The archetypal patterning inherent in Mothering conjures a sense of preparation in care—to provide all necessary needs for the security of all involved… today is a day to do just that: to take some quality time to prepare the foundations and set the scene for the ideal reality you’re preparing for, sure sure—but perhaps more importantly, today is a day to take some quality time for yourself.

To prepare yourself, with mindfulness and patience, to defy, challenge, dare, or confront yourself—and more specifically—your fears and limitations.

Contrary to (un)popular and arguably dangerous opinion—the mothering instinct is not, after all, exclusive to women who have given birth, but quite sufficiently inclusive to all humans—after all, we’re all nurturing something.

❝Being a mother is an attitude, not a biological relation.❞
——Robert A. Heinlein

Any defiance, challenge, daring, or confrontation you participate with today—or that demands your participation—will more than directly be a defiance, challenge, threat, or confrontation to your ego and egoic impulses… take your time in your preparations, and prepare your boundaries mindfully—especially whatever new or even revised boundaries you’re trying to establish.

And those delays, obstacles, and pesky problems that feel as if they need priority?—these can wait another day.

FORWARDING IN FAITH

Forecast for Tuesday, January 26th
Cancer Gibbous Moon


ॐOracular Mantra—creating a space within that place in your heart, before wholeheartedly moving on…

Let us hold a day of quiescient quiet and mindful mourning for all that is No Longer, with gratitude and grace… and let us all hold and share an honest love for the experience of it.

—And for the interconnectedness of it…

May we move forward with faith—in ourselves, and toward us all.

❝All of us might wish at times that we lived in a more tranquil world, but we don’t. And if our times are difficult and perplexing, so are they challenging and filled with opportunity.❞

EVENTUALLY & INEVITABLY

Forecast for Monday, January 25th
Gemini/Cancer Gibbous Moon


ॐOracular Mantra—learning to responsibly participate with personal vulnerabilities…

The moon moves from Gemini to Cancer, illuminating the growth of seed-ideas into the fertile beats of the heart today as the sun highlights the midpoint degree of Aquarius in between Saturn and Jupiter…

This highlighted midpoint animates that pesky degree that lends itself to those ‘transpersonal responsibilities’ I’ve been yammering on about all month—that “the power of the whole is focused within [one] in perfect freedom from ancient standards of value based on local conditions.”

❝‘People have forgotten this truth,’ the fox said… ‘but you mustn’t forget it—you become responsible forever for what you’ve tamed—you’re responsible for your rose.’❞
——Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

All changes occur first from within.

The sun is also applying a square to Uranus in Taurus through this degree, to be exact tomorrow morning… and this reflects a courageously new-found open-mindedness, reflecting personal and collective growth potentials to a potentially maddening level—remember that breakdowns always invite breakthroughs.

All changes occur through the inevitable breaking down of inherent or consequential obsolescence.

Breakdowns are only the breaking down of a previously held idea of reality that either no longer serves you, or never really did—but we enjoy clinging to what is familiar, and through today’s Cancerian moon, the clinging could become cringe-worthy.

❝When we feel we have benched ourselves for too long, we must loosen up the unessential, get over our endless cringing and make a bold leap to the glowing stars of our dream.❞
——Erik Pevernagie

A little bit of struggle is good, really—if you’re struggling a small Saturnian smidge, this is good—it means you’re on to something, something powerful, something eventually and inevitably to become quite rewarding.

However.

If you are outrightly clinging to your pain… well, that’s narcissistic asininity, and it’s cringe-worthy… though, however unfortunately, it is a very common inclination—to dwell in an egoic empowerment, disguising itself as personal empowerment.

If you’re struggling because you’re refusing to release your egoically validating self-limitations—you’re doing it wrong—this is not self-empowering, or healthy, admirable, or courageous.

All changes occur through the actual changing of What Is through changing from/through What Was.

❝Until we have met the monsters in ourselves, we keep trying to slay them in the outer world. And we find that we cannot. For all darkness in the world stems from darkness in the heart. And it is there that we must do our work.❞
——Marianne Williamson

Today’s Cancer moon could feel quite heavy—weighted down by current circumstances, by all the becoming, all the breaking down, and all the breaking through emerging… a Cancer moon never prefers change, though the subtle volitility of change is all these energies embody—today, again, might illuminate this sweet spot in balance for you to feel out in your own way.

The amount of change need not be catastrophic or upheaving… it needs only be authentic to you, necessary, and willfully endeavored.

Finding this sweet spot—by yourself and for yourself—is becoming a personal responsibility, a personally empowering advantage, an opening of light into the inner darkness—an inner enlightenment of the soul—which will eventually and inevitably become quite rewarding should you participate and reciprocate with this cosmic opportunity.

EXPRESSING THE INNER KNOWING

Forecast for Sunday, January 24th
Gemini Gibbous Moon; Part 2


ॐOracular Mantra—thoughts are things that become structures of your inner reality: what are you building?…

Today’s moon illuminates yesterday’s foggy applying Neptune/Nodal square, and today, perhaps, even more clearly through the moon’s inner knowing—a sacred clarity exudes itself.

The moon moves on to connect to Mercury, the cosmic messenger, possibly providing a message, or new information, or a more defining solution to a growing or complicated circumstance…

Social exchanges may support the soothing of your soul, though language may be strange, or vague, or entirely indecipherable altogether—through sighs, nuance, and subtle smiles—try to take the time to explain your expressions.

As Hermes Trismegistus so sacredly suggested:

Find your home in the haunts of every living creature. Make yourself higher than all heights and lower than all depths. Bring together in yourself all opposites of quality: heat and cold, dryness and fluidity. Think that you are everywhere at once, on land, at sea, in heaven. Think that you are not yet begotten, that you are in the womb, that you are young, that you are old, that you have died, that you are in the world beyond the grave. Grasp in your thought all this at once, all times and places, all substances and qualities and magnitudes together. Then you can apprehend God.


Finding the most spiritually-minded and appropriate way to express yourself today will be worth the effort—to share your thoughts and feelings alike, and to navigate your mental avenues toward prosperous byways is today’s main goal—in many more words than necessary.

HONORING THE INNER KNOWING

Forecast for Saturday, January 23rd
Gemini Gibbous Moon


ॐOracular Mantra—look within, all is known from within…

Thoughts are things, friends.

Words hold weight, words have power.

An intention that is spoken, and simultaneously put out into the ethers reverberates itself within the cosmos for all of time, repeatedly, forevermore…

And, of course, it’s one of those days—it’s so easy to lose focus and get off topic… watch, I’ll demonstrate:

Today’s Gemini moon holds thoughts, intentions, and the appropriate words to communicate these inner motivations within a powerpack of potential… if you have something to say, my friend, today—something that mere words cannot easily grasp or express—today might be the day to try to summon the words, much more: the gumption of the feeling itself.

❝God damn it, there are nice things in the world—and I mean nice things. We’re all such morons to get so sidetracked.❞
——J.D. Salinger, “Franny and Zooey”

Essentially, and theoretically, it’s not simply informative—the content of which you may feel urged to support and scatter sounds and stances…

Rather, it’s a knowing from within that operates on something of a morse code throughout the very veins pumping oxygen into your blood in every moment—this morse code of inner knowing is asking to be translated.

Into words, no less. Immediate disconnect? We’ll see…

It’s important now to not become too sidetracked by/with the words… words lie, essentially, or, at the very least, words miss the point, and this inner knowing needing to be expressed and exchanged is as true as the first breath ever taken—know that your words will experience something of a transmutation.

Also, it’s building, and thickening, and alluding itself within the thickest of the slow-moving and nebulous fog being infamously influenced through Neptune squaring the Nodes since early November… which is now as thick as thick can be.

A rather blurry transmutation, yes?

❝The brain’s transmutation begins when consciousness understands that it made everything up—morality, good and bad, redemption and the truth. With this understanding, it realizes that now it can start anew.❞
——Shai Tubali

Further, and happily, feelings of lack, inner wounding, irrational fears, and collective missteps are opening for resolve in more sobering manners than ever before in history… the degrees through which this Neptune/Nodal shift is offering sparks, however subtly, occurs through “the transfer of power and knowledge which keeps the original spiritual and creative Impulse of the cycle active and undeviated…” providing, quite profoundly, “an indication that in the end, and at the appointed time, the individual’s needs will be met among those to whom he is linked by a spiritual web of energies.”

It’s all happening—it’s all falling into place… one conversational exchange sparked from within at a time.

The South Node tends to cling to where we’re coming from, both individually and collectively, and through this degree the South Node is communicating “the need for people concerned with the future to discover a new way of living and more wholesome surroundings…” appropriately so, though this will not be so easy, nor without efforts of raw and uncomfortable sacrifice.

❝If you’re going to try, go all the way. Otherwise, don’t even start. This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives and maybe even your mind. It could mean not eating for three or four days. It could mean freezing on a park bench. It could mean jail. It could mean derision. It could mean mockery—isolation. Isolation is the gift. All the others are a test of your endurance, of how much you really want to do it. And, you’ll do it, despite rejection and the worst odds. And it will be better than anything else you can imagine. If you’re going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that. You will be alone with the gods, and the nights will flame with fire. You will ride life straight to perfect laughter. It’s the only good fight there is.❞
——Charles Bukowski

Eerily, this degree, associated with the symbolisms of pelicans, eludes, going so much more deeper, according to Rudhyar, that it is at “this stage of the cyclic process… that tradition tells us that these birds are so concerned with their young that they give their own blood and flesh to feed their progeny… whether this is fact or symbol, the meaning of this picture refers to a situation that lately has acquired great urgency—our technological society is polluting not only our global environment, but the mind and feeling-responses of new generations as well… the search for a new way of life is seen by many people to be imperative.”

And there will be a trail of birdseed to follow…

Finally, “we are told that the race’s survival has become a matter of extreme importance—whole animal species may be destroyed by our civilization; mankind itself is in danger… going to distant planets is hardly the answer—a generation may have to sacrifice itself for the sake of its descendants.”

This South Nodal degree synopsis is much like the final paragraph of our collective No Longer, in other words… we are embarking upon Not Yet with those sentiments and anxieties, through the same degree of Gemini—a degree which speaks of what Rudhyar refers to as seed-knowledge.

❝To achieve the impossible, it is precisely the unthinkable that must be thought.❞
——Tom Robbins

The North Node promises a Not Yet that embraces “the “technique” by means of which the human mind can uncover the foundations of its nature and acquire… the knowledge of the structure of cyclic and cosmic manifestations of life on this planet…” and truly, “some effort needs to be made to discover the large archaic volume and to allow the traditional wisdom within it to inspire our actions in present-day situations…”

This will be exact in several days time… however, its energies are strong today, and may become more clarifying tomorrow… a major component, through the thickness of this fog, is the very confusions toward navigating oneself beyond the current Now being experienced, so entrenched in blur and unknowns, and out-of-experience circumstances, forwardly into the clarity of one’s more authentic Now and inner knowing, and on, into the more trustworthy unknowables of Not Yet… it is the experience of it all that matters most.

The feelings.

Not the words—there are no words.

The experience of living these inner knowings in real time—oh!—we should all be so blessed to possess this inner knowing!—to be alive at this time in history!—our souls chose these duties…

Perhaps, even, the words don’t/won’t matter at all—only the gumption to try to manage the moment of the knowing: to live by example, for others to observe, to sacrifice any need for righteousness or the egoic satisfaction of pointing blame, or even an illusioned necessity to achieve an other-appointed salvation—what truly matters, each day, every day, is to show up in our authenticity, to hold ourselves personally accountable for our own actions, and to raise the exception to the rule.

Conveniently, always, the forward-thinking Aquarian sun is connecting to the strategist of Saturn in conjunction today at 4°20′, and so these noble and respectable feats are not only remarkably achievable and inherently organizable—they are now your newest and highest prioritized spiritual obligation.

Off you go, beginning from within.
