During its transit opposite the Galactic Center yesterday, the Sun released an M1.3-class solar flare with coronal mass ejection at 9:27 pm ET/1:27 am UT. The Moon was in near-exact opposition with Pluto at that time, located at 15 degrees of Cancer. The Sabian symbol for this degree is "a group of people who have overeaten and enjoyed it." The highest octave of this energy speaks of transformation through good fortune, fellowship, and satisfaction. Spirit provides abundance.
When the Sun transits the Galactic Center, things can feel, on one end, limitless, and on the other end, insurmountable. Either way, our perceptions open up to wider vision because the Great Void of the Unknown is activated. This can drive people crazy. It activates primal fears of survival because we are a traumatized species. As such, our response to what is actually a process of liberation from power and control systems is askew. We are responding as if the loss is a bad thing. It is mass Stockholm Syndrome.
The only loss involved is the loss of that which does not support the sanity of humanity.
Today, the bright light of clarity provides a bridge from one perspective to another. How about shifting to What are we gaining?
(Note: At the time of the CME, the Moon was located at 14 Cancer 34, in near-exact opposition with Pluto at 14 Capricorn 42. Pluto is at the degree of "in a hospital, the children's ward is filled with toys" - healing through happiness and fun. There's a toy for each of us if we can recognize it.)
