As the day continues, we move from energy that has rather unique features that spark curiosity to energy where all kinds of other things can spark off.
The Sun will discharge the energy of "children crowd around the orangutan cage in a zoo" until 7:43 pm ET/11:43 pm UTDo you feel cagey or caged? Or maybe in awe or wonderment? This symbol brings us into closer contact with the unusual or the inspirational.
Closer contact may turn into outright eruptions as the Sun will then begin to disseminate the energy of "a volcanic eruption." Things that have been building up are released, often in dramatic displays. Volatility and intense anger can surface, "Smoke" may be seen as advance warning (intuition will give cues).
The planet that rules anger and explosions is Mars, and Mars, which is in Leo, a fire sign, is firing off "American Indians perform a ritual to the Sun." We are directed to return to nature and to direct our thanks to the being embodied as our Sun. Giving thanks is always good, but this energy makes it particularly potent in its effects.
There's more fire, though. Mars in fiery Leo is making a trine (120 degree angle - sets things in place and facilitates) to Uranus in fiery Aries. Uranus is the Planet of Changes and Planet of the Unexpected. Change and the unexpected opens space for better ways. But these things may come about abruptly. If it seems that the new way is not a better way, this is only because the silver lining has not yet been revealed. This is the nature of Uranus. The outcome can only be good. You can count on it. Uranus is discharging the energy of "a young girl feeding birds in winter." Nurturance and assistance in a time of need underlies Uranus' motives right now.
Since we are building up to a release -- a catharsis of sorts -- we will endeavor to do this gently. We aim to be gentle with ourselves and gentle with the fellowship of humanity. It's a wonder to behold. Maybe even spectacular.
Notes: Throughout the night last night, this owl recorded a series of audio "messages" in a last-ditch effort to fulfill this month's mission of delivering information. In Message 1, I discuss why this has been so difficult this past lunar month, and how we were unable to record the New Moon Overview or the "Parliament of Wise Owls: Evidence for the Second Renaissance" despite our attempts. I also discuss the status of Oracle Academy. I also talk about discontinuing the monthly automatic deductions to Oracle Report. The Donation button remains here. Thank you all for your love and support! I hope that you enjoy my all-night talk around the campfire about the messages in a bottle.
