The quiet Sun and a misty cloud covering the Moon give our psyches an opportunity for pause. We want to take the opportunity because the energy will distort all kinds of things today. When we pause to consider, we open a path of communication with Wisdom.
Spirit, higher self, etc. delivers information, guidance, and direction to us on this open path. This helps us see through the distortions. We see that anything that is distorting is happening so that we recognize it. Things go out-of-bounds or are dramatically highlighted with flashing neon lights so that we will see them. If we are deeply in darkness or denial, the lights are much brighter -- even blinding. We are supposed to see and understand things about ourselves, our relationships, our world, and our planet right now.
Mercury is discharging the energy of "a volcanic eruption." Mercury rules communication, travel, messages, information, deliveries, speech, and speed. Things want to and often do burst out of people's mouths -- things that they have been building up under the surface for some time. White-hot lava pools of anger can seethe. Pent-up feelings seek release. Something inside wants recognition and rectification.
To see and understand things at a deeper level and also to appropriately handle our own and other's feelings, today we leave room to "change our minds" -- meaning look at something a different way. Room for a change in attitude will alleviate a lot of frustration today. When we give pause, we can change our thinking. We can alter the field of experience by looking beyond the distortion - the eruption - and see something more. What is it really about? The anger or eruption or feelings are symptomatic of something else.
We don't have to erupt. We are not at the mercy of anything, especially enemies of the mind. We can release, and we can do it honorably and with respect for everyone, including ourselves.
The Moon will conjunct the Black Moon in Virgo today for the last time for about the next nine years. The Sabian symbol for the conjunction, which builds until 2:40 pm ET/6:40 pm UT today, is "having an urgent task to complete, a man doesn't look to any distractions." We might substitute distortions for distractions. This energy is about staying true to our path, staying true to ourselves, staying true to our mission. If something is out of balance with that, it will show up today for us to see. The past, especially the parts of the past that we've seen as failure, is falling to ash as the Black Moon leaves Virgo. We remember that the phoenix rises from ashes.
So as the truth about all kinds of things enlightens us today, we will pace ourselves to enable time for pause and time to see the guideposts that are along the way. We understand that anger and frustration are signs that something needs to change. We open the path and see beyond the distortions.
Notes: Here is evidence for second renaissance. This is testimony on CSPAN of "persistent contrails/geo-engineering" aka "chemtrails." The video is important because the information is entered in public record, but, more immediately, is a precision strike of sobering scientific documentation and will enlighten many who have not understood what is happening in the skies. Deliver the information with love if you share it. Volcanic eruptions unnecessary.
And much, move love and appreciation to the parliament of wise owls for their kindness and generosity to forward the work of the Oracle Report! Magic manifests!
