YES. Or maybe, NO as in N.F.W. But i don’t choreograph this crap, obviously. So some of us recall March and the series of Swamp-Themed posts in which we basically re-named the South Node the South Swamp. Chiron on the South Node prompted that little, um, wallow and some amazing synergies in the comments.
I particularly liked how some of you pointed out that swamps can incubate good things, like rich gunk at the bottom of the pond that nourishes the beautiful lotus. But it was super psychological and all, bringing up material from our past and the bottom of our psyche. We somehow turned all that into nourishing plankton to thrive off.
So what NOW? Well, Neptune – the ruler of Pisces, the Shaman, the Muse Planet, arguably the most enigmatic astral force of all, is now on the South Node, the point of convergence for the past. Not just this life past or to date but lives. It is going to be mysterious, surreal and taking up a lot of space in the Horoscopes and Daily Mystic emails. It is ON from now until Halloween, scene of a strange New Moon in Scorpio. No wonder there is a witch revival going on. It is a logical response to all this. We all need our own magic practice now.
Reincarnation connects – done. Inspiration from other times, other places – totally. Synchronicity at a whole new level – yes. Spiritual insights into hazardous patterns and addictions – non stop till you get it. As Saturn is also in square to Neptune/the Nodes, it is one of the most potent times for erasing old psychic grooves and starting over EVER.
It makes me think of this, from Andrew Weil, in From Chocolate To Morphine:
“We think that addiction is a basic human problem whose roots go very deep. Most of us have at some point been wounded, no matter what kind of family we grew up in or what kind of society we live in. We long for a sense of completeness and wholeness and whatever satisfaction we gain from drugs, food, sex, money, and other “sources” of pleasure really comes from inside of us.
That is, we project our power onto external substances and activities, allowing them to make us feel better temporarily. This is a very strange sort of magic. We give away our power in exchange for a transient sense of wholeness, then suffer because the object of our craving seems to control us. Addiction can be cured only when we consciously experience this process, reclaim our power, and recognise that our wounds must be healed from within.”
But we have to do some swamp explorations to reclaim the magic. The Chiron-South Node activation of March was just making us more aware of the wound or the psychic rents and thus ready to do the work. Since this began the other day, I keep being served up ads (just on Tumblr) for super strength torches, sufficient to light up the darkest gloom. And no there was no torch-buying or research activity online to warrant this lol. It smells like synchronicity. What else do we need in swamps?
