DELICACIES OF DISCERNMENT

Forecast for Wednesday, January 13th
Aquarius Crescent Moon


ॐOracular Mantra—it’s a bit of a riddle, the dance within tradition and evolution…

With every dawn, when first light penetrates the sea, many seahorse colonies perform a dance to the sun, unapologetically, to come together, sometimes repeatedly, to dance…

This daily morning mating ritual dance occurs upon the ocean floor, as a dance floor, underneath a glimmering sheath of sunlight, gleaming, while delicately floating above the kelp and sea anemones, pair-bonding… changing color as they clumsily and gracefully float and glide along, attached, tails entwined, busied by the reproductive urges of legacy.

Perhaps it’s not derived by the urge of legacy?—but through evolutionary autopiloted routine? Or maybe it’s simply a courtship enjoyment…

❝And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.❞
——Friedrich Nietzsche

Typically, and most universally, there is always so much more to even the simplest action—however erratic—that lends itself to more meaning than one might ever fully realize or understand.

It’s a wonder, really, what truly occurs just underneath the surface of any matter.

Such as the truth of the matter underneath any and all traditions…

❝Just because something is traditional is no reason to do it, of course.❞
——Lemony Snicket

It is important, with Aquarian energies particularly, through the disruptions and dismantling, and clumsiest of forwardly movements, that not all processes are entirely denudated, or altogether demolished, as there may be strategic reasoning behind some of the however otherwise more ‘outdated’ methods of operations would so quickly offer or advertise.

Today’s Aquarius moon may be more inclined to argue these points—especially with an ongoing bowl aspect pattern that’s been forming since Christmas—and with no active participating point of opposing reference, it may be hard, today, to appropriately discern between traditions that both held/hold meaning and serve/d a practical function in the most efficient way… and those that bear more brunt than any benefit they bring.

❝Tradition means giving votes to the most obscure of all classes, our ancestors. It is the democracy of the dead. Tradition refuses to submit to the small and arrogant oligarchy of those who merely happen to be walking about.❞
——G.K. Chesterton

And these efforts of discernment, however they are manifesting for you in your reality, could invite or welcome something of a confliction, either inwardly or outwardly.

Several notes of interest, today, to more fully and powerfully support your efforts, either way—the sun is applying its annual conjunction to Pluto, exact tomorrow through the twenty-fourth degree of Capricorn… while the moon moves to illuminate recent Mercurial applications upon Saturn and Jupiter—only further inquiring toward the honest effectiveness and raw resolve of whatever this message or lesson is offering…

Because it’s time to look forward, and strategize next moves.

❝What matters is how quickly you do what your soul directs.❞
——Rumi

The twenty-fourth degree of Capricorn, two degrees beyond the breaking point between last January’s Saturn/Pluto conjunction (last year’s annual sun/Pluto conjunction occurred on January 13th at 22°48’—one day after the Saturn/Pluto breaking point…), occurs exactly at 24°38′ tomorrow, ever so conveniently speaks to the honoring and reliance of past traditions…

Perhaps the underlying and overwhelming resonating alike speak to, yet again, the power of discernment within higher consciousness… that, yes, that which is rotten from the interior will corrupt itself to unrecognizable proportions until it crumbles and falls, in time—and those which are delicate dances, beautiful and magical… these will pass the test and evolve, and become something so much more.

❝Tradition becomes our security, and when the mind is secure it is in decay.❞
——Jiddu Krishnamurti

Still, why reinvent the wheel when subtle shifts and fundamental adjustments can be carefully recognized and applied?

Always, it’s a delicate balance in discernment. And there’s so much more occurring underneath the surface these days…

Is there really a need to revert back to hunter-gatherer methods when we have the power and capacity to renovate the manners through which our current society and industry operate and function?!

❝Look around you. Everything changes. Everything on this earth is in a continuous state of evolving, refining, improving, adapting, enhancing… changing. You were not put on this earth to remain stagnant.❞
——Steve Maraboli

Evolution does not go backward. Always, always: forward.

The days of even attempting to go backward or sustain a life of mediocrity, for whatever reason, are No Longer.

Because it’s the sun and Pluto—this transit reflects your inner character and your capacity for actual change… reflecting transformational and transpersonal evolution… reflecting a delicate dance of discernment—from within yourself and beyond yourself.

As Saturn governs this change and opportunity to evolve—these opportunities are also being offered a lesson, or additional information, through Mercury—a lesson, or pertinent information that will continue to reveal itself and unravel in surprising ways through mid-March (as Mercury will station retrograde on January 30th through the twenty-sixth degree of Aquarius, to station direct once more at the midpoint degree between Saturn and Jupiter, never quite touching base again with Saturn, but nevertheless doing its bidding…

We do some things somewhat automatically, instinctually—and perhaps it is those things that we should consider ‘tradition’ while we continue to thrive to evolve beyond our instincts, toward who we’re meant to become?

And so it goes, this daily dance of delicacy we call Life—unapologetically—glimmering, and gleaming…

❝We should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once.❞
——Friedrich Nietzsche
