Crescent Moon Phase: perseverance

Moon in Sagittarius

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Shodashi, Goddess Who Aligns Us With Our Highest and Best; Kali, Goddess of Endings and Beginnings

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

Skill: attend to wisdom; maintain composure

True Alignments:  adapting to changing and favorable conditions, acceptance, strong desire for honesty, renewed faith, healthy or functional release of emotions, release from pressure, passages, ability to "breathe again," coming out of darkness, sharing gifts, connection with the true self, recognizing one's own strength and perseverance

Catalysts for Change:  uncompromising, desire to release burdens and obligations, temper tantrums, hyper-negativity, disconnected from the true self, superficial, deceptions (revealed), false flags, stuck in the past, robbing the public, unexpressed grief, feelings of loss, immobilized, fear of rejection

"Volcanic eruptions" of various types characterize today, as the Sun discharges the potent energetic of "a volcanic eruption."

When this energetic is in effect, the tendency is for people to "unload" or "go off," releasing things that have built up, and also projecting what is personally uncomfortable. 

Resistance is rather futile when this Sabian symbol is activated, but particularly so when the Sun activates it, like today.  The goal is to express what one wishes to express, but in a productive way, not a destructive way. 

A good way to do it is through humor.  Laughing at a situation or the irony of a situation or laughing at ourselves can transform it into something that works in our favor.  And we may actually learn something about our true self in the process

Practicing the skill of being like a wise old owl in a tree and going inside to consider before reacting and responding may also be helpful.  This may take a great deal of skill, as the energetic favors impulsivity and catharsis.  Still, we aim to maintain center.

The energetic of "a volcanic eruption" encourages consideration of the idea of "what we resist persists."  What do you think of this notion today?

In addition to the release of what has built up, we also have these three themes winding their way through the energetics of today:

1- MOVING FORWARD/ MOVING ON - Movement of the body, mind, spirit, and heart to another place is indicated today with the Earth discharging the energetic of "an Easter promenade" and Mars discharging "pelicans - disturbed by the garbage of people- move their young to a new habitat." 

Do you need to move forward or move on with something?  Do feelings of being "trashed" or victimized need to pass?  Does a rebirth need to occur?  Do you need to change the conditions or status?  Where does nourishment (of the soul) exist?  These are the questions imposed by these two symbols.

2- GRIEF AND LOSS REVISITED/RE-FRAMED - Mercury is retrograde (appearing to move backward in the sky) and is "revisiting" or coming back to the energetic of "a flag at half-mast in front of a public building."  Mercury discharged this degree on August 19-20.  Things that were in place then (feelings, circumstances, mindsets, attitudes - anything) recur or come to a different place now.  Issues and themes of grief and loss are viewed differently with Mercury retrograding and go back over this degree in the sky.  Things that were hidden or not understood then are revealed now (especially false flag ops and political deceptions).

3- COMING TO LIGHT - And speaking of things being revealed, today Venus discharges the energetic of "miners emerging from a deep coalmine."  The deepest things come up today.  A release from darkness and ignorance occurs.  In conjunction with this month's overall energetic theme of "two heads looking out and beyond the shadows," shadows are brought to light.  We no longer operate in the dark.

As discussed yesterday, the next few days are highly astrologically active, and we were aware of this in advance due to the astrology and the Sabian symbols.  We now attend to the wisdom that will be offered, stepping a little to the side of the volcano, and out of the path of its direct eruption.

The emissaries of Gaia Sophia, Kali, the Goddess of Endings and Beginnings and Shodashi, Goddess Who Aligns, flank us today.  We are in good company.

(Note: Today the transiting Black Moon made exact conjunction with Hillary Clinton's natal Chiron.  This aspect brings the deepest wounds.)
