My Holiday Shop is open one more week, with great deals on readings and gift certificates!
Ready for some stabilizing? Don’t all shout at once; there’s plenty to go around. Stabilizing is what the skies are offering this week. Not finality and not stability, exactly, but a process of stabilizing — in terms of your own footing and the ground you tread. You’re birthing your new self, a fitting development for this week’s holiday.
The process is a definite continuation of what we have been experiencing in two time frames: short term, in the shifts of last week (owie-zowie, right?) and long term, in the rumblings that have been rocking our worlds since last June.
What’s happened in the short term has done nothing short of ripping our hearts open. We’ve been tenderized from every angle, happy and not — from unexpected losses, from reconnecting with people and memories that reminded us how profoundly important they once were, from attempting to go about normal life without being overwhelmed by the sadness, longing and wistfulness that’s filling the air.
In a sense, we have come through end times. As last week’s finger of God swung into place, each of us experienced an inner restructuring that has left us permanently changed. It yanked treasures into consciousness from the depths of our pasts and beings, reacquainted us with their value, dropped some into our laps for continuing enjoyment and bricked others behind walls that will never come down.
No matter what external events you experienced, the real and lasting impact was internal. What you have been through cannot be undone. You can never go back to the way you viewed and approached life before. It’s akin to a loss of innocence — in fact, that is a component of what is going on for everyone — a quick and irreversible slide, plummet, catapult, shift, pick your term of transport, into a perspective that forever bears the mark of what you’ve just experienced.
The finger of God swung into action Thursday (Jupiter made an adjustment aspect to Pluto) and Saturday (when Jupiter did the same with Saturn), bringing into focus the cosmic red arrow that I have been writing about. It has mandated changing your thinking, clearing out your filter, and updating your entire approach to life.
The swinging stops this week, on Wednesday, when the two ends of that configuration firm up their teamwork. Saturn and Pluto are making an exact sextile, which invites rebuilding structures from the ground up (actually, even from the basement), in a huge, grand, expansive way. Claim the experiences you have undergone. Claim the impact they have had on your heart, your mind, your outlook. Claim the new views they have birthed in you, and allow them to settle into your reality.
This dovetails completely with the long term process that’s simultaneously coming to a head. This week revisits the evolutionary mandate from Uranus and Pluto, the cosmic change agents, who are disrupting our comfort zones, undermining rotting or unsupportable structures and inciting us to rebel against our status quo. Their work becomes outright personal now. (I can hear Rocket J. Squirrel: a-GAIN?)
An impulse for — or toward — liberation erupts on the 26th, when the Sun pushes against Uranus, and action-oriented Mars moves into Uranus’ sign of Aquarius. The two moves set off the energetic contractions that are pushing you out of the rebirth canal. Those recently honed new ways of thinking are requiring breaking out of some old conditions. They’ve been undergoing destabilization long enough that some will topple without enormous effort, and their tumbling leads right into Friday’s Full Moon in Cancer.
That event activates the degree of the first clash between Uranus and Pluto in June. Rumblings were set off then, rumblings that became more insistent during the pair’s second clash in September. The Full Moon sheds light on what’s become of the rumblings, how they are breaking through the surface and taking or affecting physical form, and — most importantly — how we feel about all that.
Since Cancer is the Moon’s home base, this Full Moon is the most watery, the most emotional, the most intricately tied to questions of nurturing, the most likely to send us running to jelly doughnuts and blankies and other pacifiers. This one is a degree away from the lunar eclipse that ended December 2009. That eclipse had a comforting retrospective feel, which you may find yourself revisiting now. You can experience nurturing in time present from love you have exchanged and received in the past, which sounds to me a lot like nostalgic holiday memories.
This Moon is a definite pivot point. While you are looking longingly and even lovingly at the past, you are also catapulting into a radically new future, one that’s directly emerging from developments in June and September. By Sunday, step more deeply into the change imperative with the stabilizing assistance of Saturn and Pluto. This pair brings you the ultimate gift: rebirth, renewal and regeneration of nobody but you.
It’s the most natural thing in the world to get unabashedly, unapologetically on board with the new approach to life. Accept it, embrace it, take it seriously and commit to it and glorioski — outer circumstances fall into place around it.
