I know that everyone is getting so exhausted with the constant global crisis that seems to plague us right up to the end of all these squares between Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn. The last two are December 15, 2014 and March 16-17, 2015. This painful back and forth between the old and the new reality is what is causing so much upset. I know that many of us would love to go back to an easier time when things were more peaceful and balanced but in such patterns sometimes we get complacent, which then needs to shift and wake the world back up to the conflicts that have been being ignored. Radical and often dramatic shifts in how society functions put countries and governments under tremendous pressure when this happens and clearly we are all feeling it.
There is really so much more complex astrology going on that that but in an attempt to keep it simple and in a flow of understanding this is how it is going. First and foremost I want to say that the planets are always in motion and they constantly give us options to choose from. We place value on certain positions and chose directions for our world. Options are always available to us in more positive directions and more negative ones. It is essential that in this volatile period that calm heads prevail in the fiery intensity that surround us all. We are heading towards another big month in October with eclipses in Aries October 8 and the last solar eclipse in Scorpio on October 23. I am mentioning them here because you will be feeling a buildup in the month of September. This helps me to not think I am crazy or it is just me feeling this way.
We begin the month of September with Mars finally coming out of a conjunction with Saturn on September 4th. You will feel as if everyone including yourself, has an opinion and wants to take a stand on something. Mars does not like discipline and Saturn is all about structure, authority, and limitation. The outcome is some form of conflict. Hence we see suppression of one group from a callous unfeeling other group. Attempt to keep those energies conscious and in communication with each other within your own being and family. Try to turn this energy into great precision and determination to get a job done.
Old realities and illusions are being torn down violently to expose the anger, violence, greed, and hatred that has been boiling below the surface. These are issues that are a part of humanity but it is showing a disease and that illness is separation. Take a look at where you are feeling separated and find a doorway back to oneness. In that way we heal our small part of the greater whole. It will be difficult to stay centered right now. Do it anyway. We may not be able to fix the world but we can fix the small part of our own world. Together that can create an energetic shift that hopefully goes out to the world in supportive ways.
The cards show much darkness. The mood is heavy and filled with confusion. Our inner child is frightened and feeling uncertain as to the direction to take. The desire for movement is there but the restrictions remain making us feel constant boundaries that hold us back. For some that will feel as if energetically you are exhausted and you are but it is from the emotional toil that we are all weathering. There is a desire to protect your inner child and other’s children. In such times it is the innocent that suffer the most.
All this is forcing a major domain shift in how we handle situations. Whether or not we are going to like it or not is up to the global consciousness that is holding this container of life at the moment. We will see leadership that is strong enough to handle this reality stepping up to bat in this game. I expect there will be a strong voice surfacing in the month of September and that is a relief because there does not seem to be a voice that reflects the larger consciousness right now as I write this article in August. We can no longer afford to be lazy in our understanding of the interconnectedness of all of us. The voice of love will overcome the loud small voices of the petty tyrants but just like a parent dealing with a spoiled child, there has to be a clear line and a lot of love to make anything stick.
