“Christianity gave Eros poison to drink; he did not die of it, certainly, but degenerated to Vice.” ―
Helios on the New Moon in Scorpio
The Sun & Moon, Neptune, and Pluto– The BIGGEST thing you are dealing with right now is a sense of guilt. “What right do I have to be happy now?” you’re asking yourself. FUCK THAT. The harder life is, the more important personal happiness becomes. There is ALWAYS a need to alleviate suffering in this world, even if it’s just yours. You are allowed to pursue what makes you happy and enjoy your life. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again- there is no sanctity inherent in your suffering. Now, unfortunately, this requires sacrifice. You are not just going to be able to float through your life on clouds of rainbows and sunshine- That’s just not the time we live in, I’m sorry. You have to work, and you have to work at your life. This existence is tough, and Scorpio forces us to confront that. We need to fight to survive here on this world, and its high time that we remember that we have teeth. Do not give in to despair just because you would rather die than defend what you believe in. There’s no honor in that. Take comfort where you can find it, and find reasons to keep going, keep moving forward. It doesn’t matter what the reason is, just fucking find one and hold it tight, let it fuel you. March on- But don’t forget what you’re fighting for.
Mercury and Saturn– Sorry about that, the muses took over that one. Here’s the deal- You want to hide from the world and let this time blow over. I get that, things are scary no matter who you are and your political mindset or affiliation; That’s how we got here after all. There is an underlying current of fear to these days, and that colors everything we do. How do we accept that? How do we move forward when we are paralyzed by the fear of getting it wrong? How can you dance when you live on the knife’s edge? The answer is honesty. You need to be able to get up, face what is in front of you, and be unflinchingly you in the face of it. Do not back down, do not shrink away, and do not allow yourself to be bullied into submission. This lunation is Centaur-HEAVY, so expect to see the absolute worst of humanity on display- But don’t forget to look for it in yourself. This will be an anxious time, and you will be waiting for the penny in the air to drop, anticipating something that may never come. Forget potential, forget plots- just focus on the real, the here and now.
Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Chiron, and Uranus– Okay, this is the real crux of this Lunation: All of these planets are at the end of their respective signs, and will change back soon. This makes EVERYTHING feel like the world is ending and the sky is falling down on top of us. Hell, three of them are in retrograde ingress to the signs they just left! It honestly is what makes you feel like you’re living in the Purge timeline. Here’s the thing though- All of these planets WILL switch signs, and will resume forward motion. Things will get better for you, and the tension will ease off. We will get through this time, or die trying. What you cannot do, however, is allow the complacency to set in. We have brand new adventures ahead of us, people! Five major shakeups are ahead of us! We are not going to be in this place forever, and I cant quite tell you to enjoy it, but better days are ahead of us than what lie behind.
Here’s the thing, evolution feels like death when you’re in the middle of it. Our world is changing, and we HAVE to change in response to it, or we will not survive in the changed landscape- that’s all there is to it. Our mission is not to linger in the illusory headspace of our past, but rather engage with the world as it is right in front of us. We cannot bury our heads in the sand anymore, and we need to get real- real quick. Face your reality.
