Crescent Moon Phase:  persevere through challenges

Moon in Sagittarius

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Kali, Goddess of Endings and Beginnings

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will): Elias, God of the West

Skill:  recognize patterns

True Alignments: dissolution of systems based on dominance, aha moments, seeing the patterns/rhythms/cycles, back to basics when unsure, starting over, signs and synchronicities (especially signs from nature), self-sufficiency, individual talents that contribute to the whole, relating on a deeper level, self-approval, the ancient teachings and mysteries

Catalysts for Change:  tangled webs woven from the practice of deceit, repeating the same mistake, unable to make a move or a change, too mired in details to see the bigger picture, boring routines, unrealistic, self-centered, hyper-dominant, underestimating an "opponent" or underestimating yourself, not using common sense, divide and conquer (especially via "fake feminism")

In some way today, we see a pattern. 

The Sun is discharging the energetic of "circular paths."  We recognize the repetition of something.  We often find ourselves saying "Here I go again" or "How did I get back here?" or "I know where this is going" or "Been there, done that."

The "circular paths" energetic is not about being locked in a cycle or pattern of behavior.  It is about recognizing the pattern or cycle, recognizing that you (or others) did the best that you could do, and then learning from the experience. 

The energetic asks us to recognize where we are NOW and how different choices can be made so that the experience or pattern grows into something more.

When the Sun is discharging "circular paths," the Earth is always discharging "an Indian weaving a blanket."  The patterns and experiences of our lives weave together into beautiful tapestries and stories.  Many "individual threads" combine in different ways to form our personal "narrative."

What does the "blanket" or story of your life look like so far?  What patterns do you see?  Are there particular colors or motifs that seem to recur or dominate? 

What colors or motifs could now be added to change how it looks or how it is? 

Does it need some sturdier threads, new colors, or borders/outlines/boundaries/definition?

This is your story -- your narrative, your creation.  Today we amend the story as needed, as information, insight, and inspiration are illuminated.  We are meant to see and understand something today with Mercury (deliverer of messages) discharging "a man gaining secret knowledge from an ancient scroll he is reading," and Mars discharging "a veiled prophet speaks, seized by the power of a god."

Following impulses to read or listen to something is highly advisable today.  Our attention is being drawn to what we need.

Most likely, what we see or learn today serves to BALANCE us, our story, our narrative.  Venus is discharging "a woman filled with her own spirit is the father of her own child."  This energetic symbolizes balance between the inner (sacred) feminine and inner (sacred) masculine. 

The goal of Venus' energy today is to help us learn how to provide for our own needs, not relying on others to meet our needs.  The energetic is holistic; it seeks unity or unification.  This particular frequency of energy is very good for balancing the mind (our perspective or outlook or perception).  In turn, this enables us to recognize patterns, gain information and knowledge, and then change things accordingly (change how we are weaving our story).

In the process, we are adding our story to the grander story, the Story of the Aeon Sophia.

Today we are weavers of the magic carpet on the ride of life.  The adventure continues.

Tomorrow, the Sun will square Pluto.  The magic carpet ride hangs a hard right turn.  We see it in the patterns of time.

Our hearts are with all of those in the path of the hurricane.  Stay strong, wise owls.

UPDATE FOR SUBSCRIBERS:  We are persevering and making progress.  Test email is scheduled for tomorrow.
