Awesome, the way i use it, is purely about the best you. Think of one of your victories or when you successfully navigated your way through fierce adversity to thrive regardless. Or when you won. Survived. Or finished a novel. Graduated. Whatever.
That’s getting your Awesome on and it’s in you already. It doesn’t mean that life is automatically non-stop Awesome just because you are. But it does mean that you have powers, strength and magic within that you can draw on regularly. Always. And why not? And when i refer to it in the Horoscopes, it’s in relation to something occurring astrologically that you can draw upon. Eg: if relationship astro ain’t so hot that week, why not step back and go hard at something else that is more likely to respond.
Also, Uranus in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn (the Zap Zone) IS fierce, competitive, speedy and evolutionary. I don’t set the cosmic timetable – but i do try and help my peeps thrive through it and stay relevant. In times of rapid societal change, complacency is the last attitude to be cultivating. Even if you do dress it up in a new age kaftan. That doesn’t mean you don’t rest or you burn out. There won’t be any stress martyrs on my watch. But in fierce times, you get your best game on. In a dark time, the eye begins to see…(Roethke)
So my sensibility is more hip-hop than hippie and definitely informed by my natal astrology – Uranian, 8th House, Mercury in Aries etc. It’s also more Gen X/Y not so (apparently) resonant with the Pluto in Leo peeps. F.Y.I. Uranus is not in Taurus till 2018 and i have a Vicious Cycle class to attend. We Zap Zoners take fitness seriously because we know that the government, mainstream media or lifestyle guru-peeps ain’t going to do it for us – it’s all about the hot & healthy self-reliance – psychologically, psychically, physically, intellectually – a.k.a. the Awesome. It doesn’t mean we don’t sleep lol. I mean, sleep is when we astral-travel and commune with Neptune, cleanse our perception and restore our bodily functions.
