Shift or Grind In the Gears
YA KNOW, IT'S BEEN DELIGHTFUL writing for you. Thanks. Appreciation comes easily during Sagittarius season. Spread it around, if you feel like it. We could all use a bit. It's been a tough year, but not necessarily visibly so. The anxiety of the software of Creation, the mind, has been noticeably noisy. The pain is essentially existential.
Things likely are generally going alright for you, but there's this gnawing emptiness. That's the Dream. It's a Dream. Nothing is going on like you think. Thinking obscures. You are realizing what is going on as this dreamy matrix oozes around the edges of your awareness. Let go of the Dream. Let go of your dreams. Dreams are carats of golden hope on a schtick of karmic projection. Choose what you want. Choose your own being and the rest unfolds much easily.
This month is largely constituted with a T-cross consisting of Uranus in Pisces opposed to Saturn in Virgo crossed to Sun/Mercury/Jupiter/Pluto in Sagittarius. The emphasis is on getting what you want in the Dream. What I am saying is that you are realizing that your desires for whatever, material and spiritual, have been a dry whole/hole. There's no refuge that is really working anymore. Desire is in tatters because you are realizing that it just delivers another handful of mirage. The spiritual teachings instruct that matter is a figment of your sinning imagination. Spiritual desire leads to the same empty handedness. The software is the same everywhere in the Dream including the precious heavens.
Hell is when you realize that your heaven isn't working for you.
Nowadays with this extreme heaven chasing going on in every way, hellzapoppin'! No rest for the wicked wanters in the whacky whirled of wanton wanting. What happens in Creation, stays in Creation. Let it. Be and choose and play with it all, but don't make it real here or on high. Realize your own consciousness. What you think you get gets you.
Gotten blesses you for a moment and then it dissolves and the hunger marches on. How much god or gold do you need to realize that it is mirage? Are you having fun on fantasy iLand? Enjoy yourself instead of the mesmerizing Game.
Along with the Mutable T-cross, Mars is retrograding in Cancer, cockeyed from the rest of the planets. You can see your doing in the Dream right now. You can see that it doesn't matter even as matter matters away. Intent matters much more clearly. Be intentional with your doing. Let go of where it is all going cuz it's all agoin' crazy.
Let your self see this now. Let the Dream melt into itself and realize your own being.
Venus enters Scorpio at 5:29 am PST on 12/5. Resentments are approaching critical mass. The masses are about to explode cancerously, metastasizing over everything. Virulent unease spreads. Gnawing on the ancient bitter bone begets more of the insane. Jesus is sliding off the crackers and he's pissed. Wrath writhes and wriggles beyond the bounds of nicety. It can't be bought off with trinkets anymore. The catastrophe has been let out of the bag and the shit rolls down hill.
Election year started way early for all the gaggle to gag upon. Poison and mad slinging erupt. Dirty is as dirty does. Righteous wrongeousness rails upon the Empire. The Emperor wears no clothes and he will be well hung upon his own karmic excretions. As Pluto approaches Capricorn, the powerful shutter before their fall, but they can't keep out the light at the end of their tunnel. Structures of civilization stumble and tumble revealing raw stowage of the feral sort. The Law will come down upon the lawmongers. Out out dammed spots! The ramparts have been breached. The exorcism has begun.
New Moon in Sagittarius is at 9:40 am PST on 12/9. For about a day either side of that date, we have five of the ten planets in Sagittarius. This dear Sign has had Pluto grinding in it for over a dozen years. Let us celebrate and let us celebrate all of us who have let go of the unconscious sludge through this grinding era, all for the play of it. Play on ungood and unfaithful unservants who choose to be your selves rather than keep the endless good/bad Game rolling along.
Fire the idiots in your life and in your self and fire up the dancers and players in your self and in your life. Adventure through magnificently by simply being yourself.
Jupiter conjuncts Pluto on 12/11 at 11:26 am PST. They do this every thirteen years or so. It offers the wisdom to go deep and go wide.
Perceive rather than believe. Going deep unwinds the trance of going high so that you can be and be with things as they are without belief.
Believing is not seeing. Unbelieve and never leave your being.
The economy is all over the place and everyone is worried about their dough. We are getting a brand new sort of economy that we've never seen before and this creates considerable anxiety. The haves have had way too much and the have-nots have had way too little. The topsies are going to turvy. In the new economy, social costs will be included along with environmental costs. Meanwhile, the grotesquerie goes on. Security will be a very insecure. Be yourself instead of your wealth.
Jupiter enters Capricorn 12/18 at 12:12 pm PST. On 12/19 Saturn goes retrograde in Virgo at 6:11 am PST. Saturn rules Capricorn. Jupiter has been dominant since 1995 which is why we've had an amazing run up in the economy. Now it's Saturn's turn. Jupiter is expansive; Saturn is contractive. Loss, abandonment and betrayal will run amok. You'll run through a lot of muck in the next fifteen years unless you face your own muck. If you identify in the mind and in the expansiveness, you will now find yourself peaking at the top of the Wheel and descending down the other side of the software and you are not going to like it.
What goes up must come down per the metaphysics of the software. All the uppers are now going to realize that they have suddenly gotten on a downer. Ascension will bring ya down hard and heavy. Be and get the Wheel off of you!
Meanwhile, party a bit if you like. Enjoy and let go. The years ahead are daunting. Have fun. It won't be bleak if you are claiming your own consciousness and clearing your own karma. If you realize the mind, what is going to be coming down is a direct result of your heading up the mountain. Bliss is ignorance and that shit is coming down hard.
The week between Christmas and New Year looks very charged to me. Mars retrograde in Cancer opposes Jupiter in Capricorn. This brings up major life and death questions. Oy vay! This is a load and a half. On the last day of the year, Mars backs into Gemini. Within three and a half weeks from then, Pluto will enter Capricorn for the first time in nearly 250 years. Shift and get off the old plot. Ignorance will be blitz. There will be no place to hide, no refuge and hope will begin to get very ragged. The raw underbelly of the Dream itself is flayed open from here on. Try to make your dreams come true and you'll only make the Dream true and your being false. Claim your being. Unwind from your karma and all its stories of who you are. Choose your way through the waves and turmoils. Surf's up while the serfs are up. The powermongers are falling over in the forest. The canopy is opening for those who be their selves and for all that they will be sharing. Life will look very, very different 18 months from now and thereafter. You are fine.
The world will not be so fine. You are fine.
Best wishes to you and yours,
