The Awesome Is On The Rise

Filed in INSPIRATION

“Everywhere I go, when people are doing something halfway decent in music, in movies, in sports, in businesses, they seem to be going through a spiritual shift. Maybe it is the planets but there are more of us than there are of them. Numbers cannot be taken advantage of.”

 

Lou Gossett Jr.

I agree. Even as we’re coming to terms with Pluto in Capricorn/the realization that governments are likely going to be giving a lot less than they have been (this is broadly all over the place), there is a new movement of Awesome happening.

Fresh ideas, total new Zeitgeist, the Law Of Awesome is on the rise.

Love this image, reminds me of that Russian comet that swooped down in 1908 and burned up a part of Russia. Apparently, “the explosion is estimated to have created the effects of a magnitude 5.0 earthquake, causing buildings to shake, windows to break, and people to be knocked off their feet even at 40 miles away. The blast, centered in a desolate and forested area near the Podkamennaya Tunguska River in Russia, is estimated to have been a thousand times more powerful than the bomb dropped on Hiroshima” So to me this art is so innocent and sweet, but it’s… Read more »

I cannot BELIEVE the awesomeness that is happening to people all around me. People are getting unstuck from ruts, sometimes painfully, but generally with an amazing outcome. Old houses sold and new ones bought; old jobs lost and new ones gained; love lost and confidence gained; new habits; new beginnings.

I thought it was just me and my Aqua husband experiencing the incredibility of Neptune into Pisces; but great things seem to be happening everywhere.

The only thing to remember: turn off the news!

i love this post but it also triggers my sad points. a lot of people have always been awake – but being awake is not necessarily ‘power’ in this world ruled by certain power structures. and if the big guys dont even HAVE ‘third eyes’/seeing souls/ whatever you want to call the wave of UNDERSTAND, then how is our yoga/vegan/conscious money spending/conscious associations actually gonna do shit? im not saying to be different, thats probably impossible if you empathise with mother earth – but the power structures at be do.not.give a pooopy – in certain places thats just damn right… Read more »

I wish people would ‘wake up’ faster. It seems like it’s becoming more and more urgent that people stop destroying the planet…it’s probably just me and where I frequent online but I’m constantly hearing of big corporations threatening the Great Barrier Reef or other world treasures. It feels like for every person that cares there’s 5 who are apathetic or flat out deny climate change and turn a blind eye in the name of ‘the economy’. There is no economy without the Earth…I want to DO something about it and wish I wasn’t a broke student, part of a broke… Read more »

there is power in having nothing, being handed nothing, inheriting a shit-world with no hope. i don’t think true change ever came from anything else. there are visionaries among us, but for the great masses it takes a crisis. we are in that crisis now. your generation, my generation, the generations up and coming… if there’s anything i’ve learned from more than half a decade of being in my 30s and the pluto square specifically, it’s the value of patience. not fatalistic acceptance without question (many of my peers seem to have fallen into this trap), but patience whilst retaining… Read more »

I am at the forefront of a movement in my extra-curricular activities that has had enough of a certain set of authority’s behaviour. They are attempting to monopolise a teaching style using their social standing, power and expertise to intimidate any who would do differently outside of their personal care. They believe they are saving themselves headaches that will arise later when people are taught without their expertise, or that their field of employment is in jeopardy. However their intentions, they are very much in the wrong and the community feels they have no jurisdiction outside of their classroom to… Read more »

Is this a yoga group by any chance ? Your post reminds me of some disillusioned bikram devotees some time ago.

Throughout history ‘priest’ class adherents to certain spiritual practices have always sort to maintain control of what they call secret information . Of course this is a perversion and should always be questioned and if necessary confronted. Good luck in breaking down the barriers, but never underestimate the lengths this type of creature will go to to maintain the status quo.

I’m feeling this. Like a ball of energy building inside. Being careful cause when I test the waters and let a little bubble of bliss out, I note the Qi vamps and botherers still hold sway. Not long now.
Mars is my key planet and even he has a sly grin growing, being fully rested and ultimately undamaged after being tied down for endless months in his detriment.
Jupiter will conjunct my natal Uranus in early Leo in August / September trining trans Uranus in Aries near my sun.
If that isn’t supernova time nothing is.

Am feeling cautiously optimistic for myself. Jupiter will be in my 11th. I want to have a party!
Should be signicant for the Leo, as he has sun, merc, Saturn all in the 10th

I feel a shift…but my projects/art is still blocked. 🙁 I’ve kicked up all this dust so now I can’t see past my own hand.

Unrelated: I usually avoid reading anything on 8th house placements because they’re depressing and damning but last night I was researching Neptune in the 8th (which I have) and now I’m convinced I’m DOOMED. I need an 8th house stellium mentor.

Veronica

I have 8th house stellium also, merc conj venus, sun/black moon lilith, pallas/ eris, and I’m convinced its the worst. But my saturn return is this november so I could be pissy because of that… Feeling super blocked as well, the house of death is no joke.

12th house is what is hidden from you, and 8th is what you hide on purpose from others
I have venus in the 8th and its pretty true, neptune 8th sounds rough, the hidden is hidden, that seems kind of tying in to having a creativity block too, I think its like your 8th house stuff is what you feel vulnerable about and scared of letting others know about or scared of leaving out of your control, I think you have to dig deeper and get more authentic, but its okay to be private still

Ok. Try thinking about it as your Golden Shadow. Ignore what the Net says. Take that Neptune and turn it on its arse. Every bad thing – make that a good thing. Also, just reading Cafe Astrology, it doesn’t seem like a dreadful thing to me : There is a spiritual longing with this position. You might often experience deja vus or other psychic phenomena. You pay attention to dreams and you might enjoy analyzing them. Sexual fantasies or role-playing can be strong themes in your life. You might yearn for a spiritual form of ecstasy on a sexual level–a… Read more »

Thanks for the responses, everyone. Cafe Astrology is usually pretty pleasant and doesn’t say anything too shocking on their pages, always spins the placement into potential positives, which is nice. But if you look around there are some descriptions of Uranus and (especially) Neptune and Venus in the 8th which are pretty hardcore. I know that the houses have a lot to do with more of a karmic aspect and many of these sources claim that my placements in the 8th give me some kind of inevitable crazy sudden/violent death or crime of passion scenario as well as being a… Read more »

Weren’t you going to become a Yoga teacher ? Can’t think of a better way to ground all that nebulousness…..

I have to admit, I was also thinking “ARTIST” as I read your descriptions. That may well be me projecting (wouldn’t *everybody* be happier in a small studio in St Ives ?!?) but I am definitely getting that vibe as well….

i’m totally feeling this. there’s been so much unearthed by this point that i feel like we are, at this stage, less shocked and more pragmatic, ready to open up and give again, and from a much deeper place than where we were just what, 5 years ago? 4 even? i’m optimistic that there IS a long game, and that this collective human flourishing actually WILL/IS happening. maddeningly slow, dance steps, whatevs. happening. or else i’m deluded. i’m having double uranus-neptune trines. one exact yesterday, the other a degree off. ate mushrooms two weekends ago in not the best set… Read more »

I have realised recently, it has only taken me 40+ years to work out,

Art for me is not a LUXURY, it is a NECESSITY!

soz for the shouting

that’s because art comes from vision, and vision comes from experience. experience is a nice word for going through the wringer and (hopefully) coming out the other side. or making art through the process and getting eaten by it. regardless, the product shines through.

@ HDQ – I took snaps on my iPhone of my breakdown. Still life staging kinda stuff. I was packing myself up to leave and documenting what was the triggers to trauma.

Yep I’ve felt the new stoicism of Pluto Cap kick into overdrive this year … or maybe it’s Saturn transiting my 6th house in Scorp where Jupiter and Neptune natally sit? I dunno … but I have noticed the emergence of this gritty bent to my character that was never really there before. Kinda like a part of me is now willing to forgo a variety of familiar comfort seeking behaviours … sacrificing short term instant gratification, in order to meet longer range goals and the needs of the bigger picture. In a nutshell thinner > richer > fitter >… Read more »

Hi. Not a cap but well-exercised cap moon credentials. Yes if cappy types get a bit stuck, they sort of become like Charles described the toro endurance up there. So you need to remind yourself WHY you wanted to be thinner richer better educated etc. Even if it is so you feel more comfortable moving in different circles, give your kid a better future., always looking upwards, *where do you see this taking you?* you don’t necessarily need to say “well I want to be president of lifeline” but, as a kataka with cappy makeover, you can still set the… Read more »

i know a few grumpy caps who live like this, but i think it is low unevolved victim consciousness cap behavior. which would make sense for the rest of us to behave like, occasionally at least, since we don’t have a lifetime of working with that mentality to make it haute. it is the furthest thing from an easy energy. :/

Pi

Yes! Exactly what you said. They can be really self defeating. It upsets me and pisses me off in equal measure. Two cap men I know are like this, vastly intelligent, curious , able (lol plenty of sagg in their charts) but somehow they are following a path way below their abilities. 🙁

My MUM is a cap! and a more whingeing miserable woman would be hard to find.

Having said this, and having somewhat abandoned a specific endgame myself, I agree with hdq the freedom that gives. In allowing for wriggle room, freedom from tight expectations that we can then castigate ourselves for not meeting. This does not mean living like oh whatever happens happens, drift with the algae on the surface etc. But… allowing for possibilities, remaining open while Keep the very distant desires in sight. Whatever they may be or however indistinct they are from where you stand.
Ps damn gurl you be lookin fine! Etc.

Just back after running 11.5km started running again 6 months ago after a 30 year break. I used to run competively, got tripped in an important race – next day went down with glandular fever, it’s haunted me ever since. So much I lost during those years is now returning to me – I think it’s more profound than a midlife crisis 🙂
And somehow am now doing 2 jobs working 6 days a week, it’s not for long – soon I will be debt free and my business will be transformed too 🙂
