Sabian Symbol for Lunar Month: an Indian chief claims power from the assembled tribe
Wise owls go into tight huddle to hold the line as energies that will be in full force this weekend begin to enter.
In the audio recording overview for this lunar month, Kali the Destroyer's month, I discussed how things would become hardcore. This is very seriously ramping up in advance of the Sun making a square to Uranus and then making a conjunction with Pluto this Saturday, January 3, 2015 - the eve of the Full Moon. Conflict, divide and conquer tactics, and megalomania have been building since the New Moon back on December 21st.
People are taking on the mantle of power that is implied with the Sabian symbol for this lunar month, "an Indian chief claims power from the assembled tribe." People take it too far with aspects of the Sun, Uranus, and Pluto. We see effects of the archontic divide and conquer campaign rippling through the collective, as people are being manipulated to stand against one another. Good-hearted people are becoming disillusioned.
We don't fall for the trap, though. We see right through "divide and conquer." There is orchestration behind the scenes to create chaos and destabilization. But humans aren't enemies to each other. It is not our true nature. Everyone is held accountable, but we understand that there is another force at work to take us off course and we do not take the bait. We hold the line as things spin out of control.
The conflict in energies plays out today between a desire for an overall lightness of being and deeper feelings of disappointment and emptiness. Changes are trying to occur, and this interplay of duality helps us come to terms with the truth of matters.
Along with this today, we tend to focus heavily on our perceived failures. We are already hard on ourselves with this theme now that the Black Moon has moved into Virgo (fear of failure), so we will remember that what we think of as failure is really a teacher. Free yourself from illusion. Reconnect with what is available and possible. Take a gentler approach.
It's helpful to know that new foundations, bases, and structures are beginning to take shape. Things are emerging as we come to terms with the true worth of things. We are coming to understand more about inner worth with the energy to reclaim personal power and sovereignty this month. Opportunities abound.
As these strong energies of change and transformation swirl, we remain grounded like a pole in the ground - a strong tree! Trees are havens for owls. When you see trees today, remember that we are just as connected to Mother Earth as the trees. Reinforce that connection and hold the line.
