Amazingly enough, harmonious flowing energy emanates from tomorrow’s New Moon.
This New Moon, at 21°18 Taurus, trines (120°) both Pluto at 26°46 Capricorn and the 20°07 Virgo Ascendant. A harmonious grand trine in earth signs! A grand trine of stability, connectedness, security, practicality, rootedness.
Plus, the Ascendant gains even more energy due to its opposition to Neptune at 22°40 on the Descendant. These four planets (Sun, Moon, Pluto, Neptune) plus the Ascendant/Descendant axis create a kite formation, not just harmonious, but projective, like an arrow, from Neptune to the Ascendant.
Of the four planets, two of them are outer planets, thus collective in nature. Ever since early 2008, when Pluto entered Capricorn, and especially, ever since January of last year, when Saturn conjuncted Pluto for the first time in more than 30 years, we have all been undergoing the purgative energy of Pluto in Capricorn, how it tears apart old, outworn structures and exposes the rot underneath; and we’ve been absorbing the formless, invisible, dreamlike, dissolving energy of Neptune in its own sign Pisces: we sense/feel the discordant currents of fear and love that are both circulating strongly through the collective. We are asked to use discernment (Virgo Ascendant) as to which current to not only pay attention to — contractive fear? ( the absence of love) or expansive love? Again, if we do choose to work with the energy of love, then how do we do that, in what situations, how to pay attention to the present moment when love can be inserted into, or can overlight, and thus dissolve, any difficult human drama.
On the other hand, if we choose fear — but then again, nobody in his right mind would choose fear! Fear takes over the minds. Fear is the result of indoctrination. So . . .
TURN OFF THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA!
GO OUTSIDE. HEAR THE BIRDS SING!
FEEL YOUR OWN BODY, HOW IT BOTH STANDS UPON THIS GOOD EARTH AND REACHES FOR THE SKY!
FEEL YOUR OWN HEART, ITS RADIATING WAVES OF LOVE, CIRCULATING THROUGH NOT JUST YOUR OWN BODY, BUT THROUGH THE COLLECTIVE BODY OF WHICH WE ARE EACH A MINUTE CELL.
We are, all of us, for the next lunar month, presented with the welcome gift of steady-as-she-goes, rock-solid, purgative dissolving of all the old energetic forms that have held us in their separative, isolating grip, since way before any of us can personally remember.
