What to watch for:
* Presidents' lawyers being raided
* Presidents or leaders abusing executive powers
It's worth pausing for a moment and just remembering that astrology works. :)At the start of this month when we looked at the astrology of the month ahead, we specifically looked at the Sun/Pluto square and said that issues related to corruption and power would be dramatic and pronounced at this time. We've also talked about the entrapped Venus as a transit dealing reform or as potentially being caught in the act or caught between a rock and a hard place (among other things). We usually don't have an opportunity for personal reform until a pattern or habit becomes clear to us in a way that holds us socially and internally responsible.
Anyway, on days like today, while I only look at the news very briefly each morning (I give myself about a 2-5 minute time limit most days), I smile knowing that these lives we are living and the roles we are playing, short and sweet and terrible and important as they are, are also begging me to look beyond myself and to the life of the soul and its constitutional nature as a part and parcel of the divine. When astrology works it helps us to remember that we are alive within but also always and forever beyond these passing and predictable changes of the material world.
Here are some other things to watch for:
* Issues related to control, authority, and power, power struggles, contention, impulse, and action
* The intense desire to create, to surge forward, to start something new
* Feeling born again, inspired, on fire, full of generative force
* Ready to make a change
* Focusing on something, making something beautiful by using or needing less
* Reduction, cleansing, and beautifying combined
* Diplomacy within an especially difficult or tricky situation
* Issues related to fathers, the paternal, paternity, birth and death, the health of men or men's issues
* Speaking truth to power
* The force of spring/birth and the mess or chaos of a new endeavor
I will be going live today to give a small presentation of these transits, while also addressing the question, "How does the seasonal symbolism of the zodiac apply in the Southern Hemisphere?"
Prayer: Teach us to enjoy the process of having our hearts broken open to love. Teach us to be good sports. May we trust the unfathomable game of your love.
