Energetic remnants from the weekend’s Scorpio New Moon will inspire new psychological insights, and maybe even a metaphysical event or two.
Pastor John Piper said, "The people that make a durable difference in the world are not the people who have mastered many things, but who have been mastered by a few great things." He’s making the point that you don’t have to accomplish many things in order to contribute to the world.
Astrology sessions last week reminded me that the Saturn/Pluto conjunction was approaching, exact on January 12, 2020. I shuffled my deck to see what messages these planets would reveal to us earthlings below; the cards I pulled were Five of Crystals (Negativity) and Sage of Wands (Seer).
Mercury, now in the sign of Scorpio, stations retrograde next month, which means this is the month to confirm agreements and solidify plans, or plan to wait.
Last week was filled with feelings of anxiety, anticipation and uncertainty for a lot of people, including me. Energetic remnants of the Pisces Full Moon that peaked on Friday the 13th still lingered, as if we had all been put under a spell.
Planets enter the cardinal sign of Libra this week (Mercury and Venus to start), which means anxiety influenced by a dominance of mutable energy above will now be substituted for assertive action. We can finally pick a direction, and do so with cardinal conviction.
This will be a week of disillusionment. The bubble will burst at some point over these next few days, as we reach the Pisces Full Moon on Saturday, September 14th.
Two words kept coming up in my sessions last week: Detachment and Source.
This week brings an Earth Element Event. We currently have seven planets transiting the Earth signs of Taurus (1), Capricorn (2) and Virgo (4), all to be capped by a New Moon in the sign of Virgo on Friday, August 30.
