Cancer Crescent Moon
—June 29

Jean-Paul Sartre expressed that “freedom is what you do with what’s been done to you…”


Though I beg of you to reread that…

If you choose to do unto others precisely what’s been done unto you—this is not freedom, this is conditioned insanity.

As you’re likely still considering your trigger points and investigating their depths, today’s moon squares Chiron through a degree that represents growth, what astrologer Dane Rudhyar transcribed as ‘the life urge to actualize one’s potential’.

I would argue, that in many ways, one’s potential includes—or inherently involves—the extensions beyond what one is given or gifted, and beyond that which one may find easy or natural… potential is what is offered and rewarded when one goes out of one’s ways, genuinely, authentically—potential, then, is something, most naturally, that we birth, and grow, and thereby bleed through and toil toward… it is not to ever be taken lightly as just another buzz word.

Perhaps the most important detail today, and really—in general, is “to realize that something of value has the opportunity to develop, but will need nurturing, attention, fertilization, care, and hope…” and regardless of where you are on your ‘journey’ in self-evolution—to remember that Nature isn’t too keen on shortcuts… take your time—as time is truly the only real value we’ve left—don’t disgrace this.

Ultimately, something new is occurring—whether it is expanding your own limited conditioning or not—it is similar to a sensation of freedom… try not to hold yourself prisoner to the past.

The most loving parents and relatives commit murder with smiles on their faces. They force us to destroy the person we really are: a subtle kind of murder.❞
——Jim Morrison
