Crescent Moon Phase: perseverance, dedication

Moon in Scorpio

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Bhairavi, Goddess Who Fortifies the Heart, Goddess Who Calls Forth the Inner Hero

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will): Kathe, God of the South

Skill:  be attentive during today's "class"

True Alignments:  creativity, imagination, observant and attentive, looking for the details, the power of "x-ray" vision, inner strength, mystical, observable data, alchemy, ancestry, progress, perspective, finding joy, discoveries

Catalysts for Change:  bouncing around, false stories and narratives, trying to win sympathy, disclosing too soon, inertia, confusion, insecurity, grief and loss (this is attempting to come to resolution), denial, indecision, suppressing feelings, disconnected, repeating a self-destructive pattern

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "an evening lawn party of adults" (grow up time/grown up time)

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the magic carpet of Oriental imagery" *(transcending, rising above, adventure, mystery, magic, hope, wild rides)

Today on the Magic Carpet Ride of Astrological/Natural Year 2016-17 we learn something that enables us to choose a different way in order to prevent/interrupt a repeat of the past.

The Sun (the divine being Sabaoth, according to the ancients) and the Earth (the aeon Gaia Sophia, according to the ancients) are our teachers every day, but they are especially instructive today.

The Sun is discharging the energetic of "a chemist conducts an experiment for his students."  We see all of the elements, conditions, or circumstances of a situation, but we see how we can change those up to have an entirely new situation.  This would create a new experience of life.  How can the elements of a situation (or state of mind or a state of heart) be shuffled, recombined, and therefore renewed?  What do you want to change?

If the answers are not readily available, give it a little time.  The Earth is discharging the energetic of "a man being unmasked at a masquerade."  The curtain or shadow or façade that has blocked the answer or the information will fall.  We will have the opportunity to see something we need to see, learn something we need to learn.

Venus is adding to the "revelatory" energetics as it begins the day discharging "a man becoming aware of nature spirits and normally unseen spiritual energies."  Confusion is lifted.  We see and understand things we did not see and understand before.

These insights keep us off the "merry-go-round" of the past (if we choose to be off of it), as Venus ends the day discharging this energetic.  The past seems to offer comfort and security.  We can rely on the past -- we know it.  We also know where it leads -- what happens.  Today's energetics offer the opportunity for something different.  We are offered a chance for (could it be?) something better

As a previously traumatized species in process of working out of trauma, we rarely consider that things could be better.  Hope does not fit into a trauma response.  Trauma responses are about protecting oneself from harm happening again, so there is no room for hope, only survival.

I suggest we consider taking a step off of the trauma response "merry-go-round" and take a step toward a new way.  This step can start right now, today, as the energetics favor showing and teaching us something new.

By day's end, we should see the links and interconnections between things, enabling us to open up space for a different experience -- a different future.

I find that the Oracle Report is often most intelligible or useful at the end of the day, after the dynamics have played out.  If your habit is to read it earlier in the day, you may find that you get more out of it by also reviewing it sometime at the end of the day.

One other thing that is adding to the "revelatory" or "exposing" or "unmasking" nature of the day is the Moon's conjunction with the Black Moon.  Exact conjunction occurs at 7:00 pm ET/11:00 pm UT, but is dominant all day.  Be aware that people tend to project their own feelings and frustrations on to others when this aspect is in effect.  Things well up from the deep and the dark in order to transform.  The Black Moon in Scorpio digs deeply and can bring up the darkest of the dark.  This is because the sign of Scorpio is ruled by Pluto, which is considered the archetypal-astrological energy of the underworld.  The Black Moon and Pluto are consorts in the underworld.  Together they bring transformation and rebirth.  (This is most pronounced for those with the Sun, Black Moon, or Chiron in Taurus or Scorpio.  A rebirth of all levels of who you are is happening.  You are undergoing a massive overhaul in preparation for rebirth.  The overhaul lasts until February 14, 2017.)

So, understanding that "what was concealed is now revealed" as the primary dynamic in operation today, we learn something that enables us to do things or feel a different way.  We remember to incorporate the idea that things could actually be or feel a better way.  We allow hope to enter.  We engage our sacred masculine, our inner Thelete, to guide us using our hearts.  The heart's desire is the key to getting off of the "merry-go-round."  What is your will?  What is your desire?  Which way can it now be?  Which way would be better?

Today, let us attend to the wisdom and will of the Sun and the Earth, as they teach us what we need to know (gno).
