In times of hyperflux, “scattered” is the new “together.” It means you’re not stuck, you’re thinking and reinventing.
I said this in my Daily Mystic email for members and it seemed to resonate so I’m reiterating it here. If you were entirely sure of a direction at this point, that would be weird.
The Saturn-Pluto conjunction that peaked in January (but which was building throughout 2019) was always going to call time on the rickety faux fixes set up after the G.F.C. and 2020 is obviously exposing a multitude of failings within the system.
Apart from the obvious stress factors of the pandemic and the various government responses to it, the current astro is difficult for one core reason: Mars in Aries pushes for nowness. It wants to accelerate or solve s**t via a burst of hyperbolic action. Saturn at the end of Capricorn wants to slow everything down so that lessons are learned and foundations are laid.
Mars In Aries Accelerates – Saturn Is The Speed Limit
These two are in a long-haul, repeating square to one another, flanked by Lilith and Eris in Aries on one side, Jupiter and Pluto on the other. We will get a new structure out of all this but it’s tough terrain between now and the December new-era vibe.
Saturn this potent makes everyone aware of shortfalls and vulnerabilities, exaggerating your perception of them. If it were a standard-issue Aries-Capricorn/Mars-Saturn tension, you could work and exercise your way through it but not if you’re confined to barracks or the work itself is elusive.
I’ve done detailed takes on the current scenario and its potential tangents in my (Mega Mystic member feature) Turbulent Times series. And the Mars in Aries strategies are covered in the Mp3 of that name. If you have them, re-read/re-listen, if not – consider both or either. The TT series is more than 10,000 words and more in-depth than I could cover in a blog post and the Mp3 is pretty much the most authentic – no fluff – 40 or so minutes motivational power-up for late 2020 out there.
Courage, Leadership, Magic
Remember, square or no square, Mars, Saturn, and Neptune are the most powerful planets at the moment. All of them are in their own sign and feisty. You could interpret this as Courage, Leadership, and Magic.
Call it the Hyperflux, Great Disruption, Late-Stage-Capitalism, Fin De Siecle, general fuqery – whatever – it’s quite something. It’s also polarizing people, the set-up for 2021’s big deal alignment: Saturn in Aquarius square Uranus in Taurus. Given that I’m trying to grow my own spirulina and am having problems typing because my fingertips sting from stinging nettle, I’m probably edging toward the Uranus in Aquarius end of it. More on this fascinating alignment to come.
In the near future, Saturn Direct in late September will be a significant shift, as it heads back towards Aquarius and Mars Retro is going to be recriminations central. A lot more intel will emerge, a blend of the usual grift, ecocide, and underfunding of public health AND more startling or unexpected revelations.
So, how are you all going?
