This is quite a day, guys. In fact, until the Full Moon on the 12th, the skills of wise owls across the world are needed. The matrix is pushing an emotional maelstrom with Mars' opposition to the Eris Point and now Mars' opposition to Eris itself.
The archetypal energy of these battle forces, the twins Mars (Aries) and Eris, tears through things. It prompts a great deal of anger and conflict, even as it tries to work the high end of the energy. On the macro or collective level, the energy produces revelation of truth and social change. On the micro or individual level, the truth about ourselves, others, and our lives in general is shown. Mars and Eris blaze through on their horses, tearing back the veils.
Eris also tends to throw "apples of discord." In the story, the Trojan War is incited by Eris after she crashes the gods' party and throws the Apple of Discord. The Apple of Discord is labeled "To the fairest" - which is the same thing at "Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is fairest of them all?" A fight breaks out and the gods use humanity to solve the matter.
Eris energy makes us want to throw things. She shakes us out of superficial pursuits.
In addition, today's energy also carries a signature of consecration. The Sabian symbol of the degree of the Sun is "a priest performing a marriage ceremony." Be wise to what you are committing or vowing. Don't sacrifice yourself for another and don't force things.
This energy is most effectively navigated by moving your body. Anger is channeled productively through activity.
This month's ruling Wisdom Goddesses, Dhumavati and Kali, have a special message today. First off, they are ON IT and they have been all month. They are using the Mars-Eris energy to tear down the systems of enslavement of humanity - even though it looks differently, like the new world order is creating chaos and winning. When it comes to chaos, Kali rules.
The goddesses would like us to know that all of the death, destruction, and ungodliness that the Archons and their minions are inflicting is only taking them down. It saddens us to our souls to watch the suffering and the manipulation, but it is being rectified and we are part of the process. Our mindsets are a tremendous force. The goddesses would like us to take heart and be courageous.
Secondly, they wish us to consider the inverse of what we typically believe. We tend to think we are human beings having a spiritual experience. This is true. But it is also true that we are spiritual beings having a human experience. Do you feel the inner shift this produces? We are so brainwashed into thinking that we are puny, powerless humans locked in a cycle of repetitive lives paying for our choices over eons of time. The Mahavidyas call bullshit on that. (Yes, they curse.) We are much greater than this. The goddesses would like us to remember this.
As the emotional maelstrom tries to entangle us, we see through to the bigger truth. We understand that our emotions are triggered and that shadow sides are coming out. Think before you act. If someone acts or lashes out, remember that everyone's shadow side is being activated right now. We don't ignore it (because truth is trying to be revealed) but we do not have to engage it or take it head on. It's a shamanic feat to be able to stop ourselves from overreacting under this energy. If you feel the need to "lob" something back, be wise about it. Throwing an apple of discord has far-reaching consequences.
Let's carpe diem wise-owl style.
