Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: “a clown caricaturing well-known personalities” (exaggeration of things in order to see truth)
Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: “fairies dancing in the setting Sun” (end of archontic control systems)
Please don’t shoot the messenger. While I would love to report that today’s energetics are mellow and light, today is just not that day. Even so, we will watch things unfold and work the higher level of it all.
Primary among today’s astrology is the conjunction of Venus and Mercury (while Mercury is retrograde for a few more days). Venus and Mercury meet up at 27 Cancer and the Sabian symbol of “a violent storm in a canyon filled with expensive homes.”
We are familiar with rocky canyons this month, as Mercury stationed retrograde at “rock formations tower over a deep canyon.” Now we have a storm in that canyon, and the storm is named Venus. So this means situations and circumstances related to interpersonal, familial, and romantic relationships are highlighted.
Since Mercury is retrograde, it is trying to re-work things about these relationships. A tipping point is reached. Walls come down. We are forced to see certain things. The question is what do you truly value?
The stormy forecast is reinforced with the Earth discharging the Sabian symbol of “an unexpected thunderstorm.” This brings tests, surprises, and a clearing of things that have built up. We expect certain things to be sudden today, but we may be thunderstruck by things we did not see coming.
Again, all of this happens in service of two things: the theme for this month of things being exaggerated in order to see truth and the theme for this year of the old ways ending and new ways beginning. This year is a “transition year,” and today aids that transition.
Jupiter, which is retrograde, moves back to 15 Sagittarius and the energy of “the ground hog looking for its shadow on Ground Hog Day.” This always brings pattern recognition. We see how we are doing the same thing over and over.
In this symbol, the ground hog keeps looking backward - in the past - trying to find its “shadow.” We don’t have to keep looking for this because we have identified our shadow side or core fear - our natal Black Moon - and the ways to integrate it and move beyond the cycle. (If you are new to Oracle Report, you can identify your natal Black Moon in the index of my book, which is posted for free, and then read about it in Chapter 2.) Understanding and integrating the shadow side is a key component of self-mastery and self-actualization.
Did you know the groundhog (or woodchuck) is a member of the squirrel family? Ted Andrews writes about this in Animal Speak. He says, “When groundhog shows up…there will be opportunity to explore deeper altered states of consciousness. Lessons about death and dying and revelations about this process will begin to surface…[Groundhog’s} medicine is that of going into the great unconscious to touch the mystery of death without dying.”
Groundhog also represents symbols, so pay close attention to synchronicities and signs from the natural world today.
The other major dynamic in effect today is Mars discharging “a pageant moving along a street packed with people.” With Mueller “testifying” on The Hill today, much ado will be made of the show. The question is, what is happening while this is going on? Is there a diversion? Is our attention being hijacked? What is truly happening behind the scene?
And what is trying to be spread? The Sun is discharging “an epidemic of mumps.” We stay high above the hysteria that archontic energies are whirling up in response to THE STORM OF HUMANITY’S FREEDOM. Spread the LOVE.
Let’s make our own thunder on this stormy day. Make this day meaningful. Take the wisdom that is being offered by looking deeper into the things that are being “exaggerated” in your life. 5 Death is the power of love to transform, so we have ample energy to make changes.
End of message. Thanks for not shooting! :)
