What we idolize, asks for the moon.
What we demonize remembers what it lives without.
The pillaged psyche strews torn clothing
For imagination to pick up and fold anew.
What we pray for and now regret
Curves itself around truth
Wanting only to unbend the lie, the hidden curse.
Don’t lets ask for the moon
When we have the stars.
Call it what you will, this week offers the world a moment to consider what 2021 is all about. In non-Astrological terms, it is the push and shove of two very oppositional, complex energies that will either force a change of plans, enliven where we are with new opportunity, or be an irresistible force of transmutation….possibly all three! These energies are embedded in the Saturn/Uranus square which has been moving into place since Winter Solstice of 2020. Evolved Aquarian bodies want to find freedom and individuality in order to lead authentic lives. The Saturn blockage says, ‘not so fast, there are rules, policies and structures that must be adhered to. We know that Uranus will win. It is more powerful than Saturn, but Saturn never surrenders. It hangs on until it is in shreds and must crawl away to rebuild its psyche.
What each of them sees is antithetical to the other. One works without a net, the other is the net. Vision is awarded to Uranus as the outer-limit, intuitive conduit. Saturn’s sight is grounded in physical dimension, only what is seen is real. While trying to remain true to self, nurturing our unique needs and wants, we must also expand to include the tribe. In this time of breakthrough and breakdown we are working within old systems and policy that no longer nurture. We are ‘Covid-impatient’ to move on, How far can we push our agenda before squashing another’s? This week, be very wary of pushing too far, too fast. A new reality, a new era, a new, far more equitable world is forming. Yet we face set- backs, reality checks, and disappointment. Now is the time to know all you do is sacred. Now is the time to know irresistible forces are creating a higher consciousness. Our job is to be prepared to radically step into the unknown, and shift, without destroying everything.
The earth may rebel and throw up its own under the immense forces of this square. We may see tsunamis, huge storms, earthquakes, and unexpected, destabilizing events. Just remember that same energy is also at work in your psyche.
A RITUAL MOMENT: Sit with intention. Close your eyes. Open up the third eye. Listen to the quiet voice inside. Hummm a little tune. Breathe deep into body, focusing on the exhale. Wait. The angelic force field is arriving.
The PRACTICE: Make it a wonderful joining of stability, Saturn, and surprise, Uranus. Weave together known poses with curiously creative sequencing. Sit and envision a new approach to your Practice, then go about setting up its structure. It’s the best of Saturn with Uranus. If we learn to use them on the mat, we can use them in life.
BIRTHDAY MARCHING ORDERS: You might spend this year leaping from outlandish outfits and ideas to old structure and fears. You have a wonderful opportunity to grow more creative if you can harness the diametrically oppositional forces affecting your ego and identity. It might be a year of great wisdom as you become the alchemist, weaving reform, new ideas, greater freedom, strong structure into an enlightened visionary force.
