Why is this New Moon In Sagittarius so strange? Blame it on astrophysics, Dark Matter and the recent Mercury Retrograde.
There are Mercury Retrogrades that slow things down, and there are Mercury Retrogrades that catalyze progress.
This most recent bit of tricky mercurial business has been the latter. The last three weeks have felt like non-stop fixing things and then having to fix the fix. Or sudden recognition of the limits of a person/ paradigm via some truly surreal batshit scenarios.
As stress-inducing as it has been, the vibe is so Mutable that changes you’d never otherwise have made are getting made, at Warp Speed and with dazzling conviction.
It’s all climaxed these last 24 hours: Mercury turned Direct on the Dark Moon right before the New Moon. And it’s no ordinary New Moon. It is conjunct the Great Attractor, square Mars in a shamanic warrior hook-up with Neptune and aligned with asteroid Circe – the Sorceress.
Who knew you could have such expanded consciousness while doing basic task-wrangling? The Mars-Neptune alignment is still happening; perfecting over the weekend and inspiring lucid awareness. The streetscape and general ambiance will be of cinematic or theatrical intensity. People who don’t know what’s up will be far more inclined to conjure up fibs, lapse back into addiction or try to advance a delusional seductive agenda.
But it is not the energy to fuq with. It’s Quintessence; the fabled 5th Element of the Ancients. Scientists know it as Dark Matter. And it’s powering this New Moon in Sagittarius.
