REBALANCING NARRATIVES

Forecast for Tuesday, January 5th
Libra Disseminating Moon


ॐOracular Mantra—ah, the Libran moon—tis a time for balancing and finding centeredness…

Beyond an organically contrived inclination toward seeking harmony today, whether it’s possible or inevitable—there’s not a huge amount of celestial quaking occurring… largely, we’re still feeling reverberations from yesterday’s rumblings, still sorting and processing appropriately… so allow me to tell you a little bit about what the moon is up to between now and tomorrow.

A most certainly diplomatic moon is applying Pluto by square, exact tomorrow, but will actually occur just beyond tomorrow’s last quarter moon…

Why am I trading time to tell you this now?

Because it allows you ample time to adjust appropriately, to better prepare yourself to allow, and to adroitly experience the full potential of what this nimiety could provide you… it’s big.

❝A single idea from the human mind can build cities. An idea can transform the world and rewrite all the rules.❞
——Leonardo DiCaprio

The degree to which the moon is applying Pluto, to connect exactly by square, associates itself to inner strengthening—and the “ability to develop new modes of response to basic life situations…”

Can you imagine!?—actually rewiring, or rebalancing rather, your ingrained narratives?

Something will continue to be unrealized, sure, even in an effort of prepared foreshadowing… though you may “discover in every experience a transcendent or cosmic meaning” if you’re open to it.

These energies are already building, and have been, and derive an urgency of ‘seeing through’, as it is “the mind open to the multifarious wonders of natural processes, because it sees everything with fresh eyes, not only witnesses simple facts, but pierces through appearances and perceives the great rhythms of universal life—without such a faculty the aspirant to spiritual realities is always looking for “elsewhere” yet the spirit, life, God is ever present, here and now… this world is illusion only to the individual who cannot see through its phenomena and fails to apprehend the reality these phenomena reveal even as they conceal it.”

I tell you this now so you may conjure your inner authority and choose to continue on forwardly with an open mind and an open heart, and to see through that which might otherwise look inconspicuous.

❝Many ideas fail to see the light of day and are buried in the same fertile mind they once originated in because of a single reason. People fail to take the first step and the next steps never happen.❞
——Rajan Kumar

Of course, when the moon is in Libra, we naturally—and almost instinctually—seek to find balance, and as today’s energies continue to simultaneously reverberate with yesterday’s energies, coalescing with something entirely different: it’s essential to find a centeredness… as shamanic astrologer Raven Kaldera suggests, “make use of this time to be reasonable.”

This would further reflect an influencing toward your ‘responses to basic life situations’… be reasonable with yourself and your expectations—and I would imagine that harboring any expectation whatsoever would not be recommended. There’s, indeed, a particular openness needing to be applied here, to ‘experience transcendence’… however, transcendence can be found through even the slightest opening, when being opened from a place of rigidly tightened close-mindedness.

In other words—give yourself a break: angels might not sing in the background from on high…

Though… they might. Absolutely don’t rule it out—it might very well feel like an incompleteness being made complete.

❝The pendulum of the mind oscillates between sense and nonsense, not between right and wrong.❞
——Carl Gustav Jung

Finally, today’s moon also opposes Chiron, further suggesting that you be quite «reasonably» patient with yourself, and with others, today—this process that is, and has been, unfolding and unfurling, which will continue through the rest of the month, experiencing a quite disruptive shift through the middle… this process is attempting to (further) open you to otherwise unnoticed relevancies, necessary for your inevitable breakthrough—trust this.

Much of this relevancy of potential is an effort through the energies between a lunarly square to Pluto being applied all day—occurring through a degree which associates itself with a “new strength [being] shown (some kind of technique implied thereof)… perhaps as yet unrealized.”

I would suggest being open to learning something new, or adjusting any rigidities being held from within to more appropriately approach something currently only offering you frustration.

❝Here we are, trapped in the amber of the moment. There is no why.❞
——Kurt Vonnegut

WIELDING WEIGHTED WORDS WISELY

Forecast for Monday, January 4th
Virgo Disseminating Moon; Part 2


ॐOracular Mantra—today goes well beyond ‘saying what you mean and meaning what you say’…

If yesterday wasn’t nitpicky—today may be, as Mercury connects with reality-check Pluto, in conjunction, in sobering Capricorn… and as the moon continues to move through Virgo, these new—however jarring or jolly—awarenesses could prove inviting to quickly pick apart.

Typically, this sort of edgy conjunction lends itself to words that hold weight—massively wily weight—as through the degree that Mercury and Pluto meet, today’s energies may hold an exception toward words that feel quite foundationally finalizing, even without factual founding…

❝I must go in, the fog is rising.❞
——Emily Dickinson

My astrological recommendation, of course: choose them wisely.

It is also possible then, through truly owning your words—to imply that you’re fully taking personal responsibility for your thoughts and intentions—that you may find freedom through expressing your inner motivations.

Only through surrendering to your inner light should you be able to wholly enjoy the beams of its brilliance…

❝I go to seek a Great Perhaps.❞
——François Rabelais

Should you choose to use words meanly, vindictively, or cuttingly—the reverberations and repercussions of this choice might bite back. Beware of your egoic impulses today… what feels good or sounds fitting in the moment may quickly tarnish or spoil soon after.

Should you be particularly stuck or suspended within a more negative or shadowy association through these energies, try to focus or meditate on the singular concept of process—either upon the processing of your emotions and feelings, through taking destructive impulses and transforming them into more constructive experiences, or simply reveling in the process of this more discerning inner becoming you’re currently learning through and experiencing.

❝No, it wasn’t the end. It was a better beginning.❞

THE GRIT & GROUT OF GUTS

Forecast for Sunday, January 3rd
Virgo Disseminating Moon


ॐOracular Mantra—doing the right thing, whether it is easy or convenient or preferred, is a matter of intestinal fortitude and authenticity rather than personal account, though accountability will begin to apply…

A potentially irritated and possibly nitpicky and very typically unlikely impatient Virgoan moon will apply a mutable cross the entire day—talk about diligently dutiful regardless of circumstance—before connecting to the nebulousness of Neptune in opposition and to the Nodes by square just after midnight, suggesting these lazier tendencies should a sense of accomplishment not be attained.

And by accomplishment, I really mean to refer to something you need to do rather than something you’re working toward—and likely something you’d rather not do but know deep down that you need to.

❝Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’❞
——Martin Luther King Jr.

Still, things could get fuzzy. Details might become a bit blurred. Facts might fall into fictions and fictions could gain momentum and fool us all…

Try to say what you mean today, and mean what you say—always—or otherwise explain yourself as needed, and try not to order with your eyes, as they say, but rather with your stomach… speaking of which, should be an excellent indicator of a feeling—if you’re reasonably unable to do what needs to be done, perhaps you might need to hold yourself accountable as needed; furthermore, if you are realistically unable to take on your ideals, consider restructuring these visions in a way as so you can…

Still, this also lends itself quite nicely to simply being true to yourself—owning and honoring your own authenticity through the power and empowerment of your personal Truth, in right action…

I think I’ve heard it referred to as ‘intestinal fortitude’… and this, of course, ever so quaintly renders itself somewhat surrendered to a notion I’ve also heard referred to as ‘doing the next right thing’, and you know who you are.

In other words—you’ll need to step up and be a bit ballsy today… and this could be somewhat confrontational.

❝Each man’s life represents a road toward himself, an attempt at such a road, the intimation of a path… but each of us—experiments of the depths—strives toward his own destiny. We can understand one another; but each of us is able to interpret himself to himself alone.❞
——Herman Hesse

That good ole gut feeling could be strong today—a region of the physique that is governed by Virgo… and with so much emphasis of Piscean vibrations through the likes of both Jupiter and Neptune—intuitions are heightened, too.

Instincts, intuitions, and intestines are interesting ideas…

Justin and Erica Sonnenburg write in their book, “The Good Gut” that “a primal connection exists between our brain and our gut…” that “we often talk about a ‘gut feeling’ when we meet someone for the first time—we’re told to ‘trust our gut instinct’ when making a difficult decision or that it’s ‘gut check time’ when faced with a situation that tests our nerve and determination…”

❝You are one thing only. You are a Divine Being. An all-powerful Creator. You are a Deity in jeans and a t-shirt, and within you dwells the infinite wisdom of the ages and the sacred creative force of All that is, will be and ever was.❞
——Anthon St. Maarten

Further, “this mind-gut connection is not just metaphorical—our brain and gut are connected by an extensive network of neurons and a highway of chemicals and hormones that constantly provide feedback…” in fact, “the enteric nervous system is often referred to as our body’s second brain… the network of neurons in the gut is as plentiful and complex as the network of neurons in our spinal cord, which may seem overly complex just to keep track of digestion.”

The spinal cord!—the “seat of major energy meridians, chakras, and neurons—the spine is the first thing that is formed [within the mother’s womb], then the body and limbs take root… the spine literally supports us from behind, yet in our progress oriented ‘getting ahead’ world, we relentlessly move forward, relying solely on the front of our bodies…”*

Perhaps, then, tuning in and listening to our gut—to that inner instinct, to your inner knowing—naturally moves humanity forward «when it’s trusted and applied» and perhaps this reciprocation in participation is the true evolution of potential.

❝To understand the truth of everything, it took guts more than simply thinking.❞
——Toba Beta

The Sonnenburg’s surmised that “it is becoming clear that the influence of our microbiota reaches far beyond the gut to affect an aspect of our biology few would have predicted—our mind.”

Our mind.

Actual limitlessness within our physical limitations…

❝Don’t limit God and God won’t limit you.❞
——Matshona Dhliwayo

This integral connection between mind and body—and gut, one must argue to add—is crucial now, if not austerely appropriate…

I’ll let you take some time to really process this—you know—in your gut and throughout your spine… to mindfully and instinctually probe more deeply into the grit and grout of What Is and What Could Be, to discern between your own authenticity and inner Truth… and the vacant fulfillments the collective consciousness is either offering you or holding against you.

❝Plants are more courageous than almost all human beings: an orange tree would rather die than produce lemons, whereas instead of dying the average person would rather be someone they are not.❞
——Mokokoma Mokhonoana

PRIORITIZING ACTUALIZATIONS

Forecast for Saturday, January 2nd
Leo/Virgo Disseminating Moon


ॐOracular Mantra—too much of anything can be a bit much–it’s a good time to narrow your focus of manifestation…

Astrologer Dane Rudhyar states that there might be “a wide, and perhaps confusing, openness to a multiplicity of inspiring potentialities…” toward the degree association of the Leo moon connecting to Mars by trine.

Yesterday’s overwhelm may have eased a bit, and today might feel much more inspired, or exciting, and bursting with potential.

❝The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails.❞
——William Arthur Ward

It’s important to remain realistic… as today’s energies are offering feelings and expressions of being “flooded with new ideas and new possibilities… this can be very exciting, yet also quite confusing—it becomes necessary to focus oneself by limiting one’s field of vision and activity.”

By limiting your limitless field of vision—as I’ve been sharing with clients through 2020—visualize as if you’re attempting to streamline the multilayered streams of an entire waterfall of potential… into a single straw.

With Jupiter and Saturn moving so closely together through the first quarter of the year—weirdly, less is more.

❝So now I’m on a mission—’cause that’s the way I groove
I got more and more to do, I got less and less to prove…❞
——Ani DiFranco; “Evolve” lyrics

Despite the chaos of last year, it is more possible than you may yet realize—or still be unwilling to consider as much thereof—to consider the true reality that you are actually thriving within a massive becoming of potential and breakthrough… and you are now embarking upon, as Rudhyar assures, a phase “at which an intense feeling-intuition rising from the unconscious is about to take form as a conscious thought.”

Rudhyar asks: will the intuitive feeling fade away reabsorbed into the unconscious, or will the inexpressible realization acquire the concreteness and expressible form of a concept or a definite motif in form?

In other words—will your thoughts and seed-ideas, intentions, ideals and visualizations remain within the boundaries of your mind or imagination?—or will these grow, into limitlessness, through actualization, in real time!?

As Rudhyar states it: there is a ‘yearning for conscious form’…

You’ve got work to do, friends—keep your eye on the prize and your resources prioritized.

❝We are the cosmos made conscious and life is the means by which the universe understands itself.❞

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


*VOC until 10:58am PST; 11:58am MST; 12:58pm CST; 1:58pm EST

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

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.
