7:30 AM PDT of the 17th the Cancer Moon creates a Grand Cross with opposition to Pluto and squares to Mars and Uranus. We see large, Archetypal energies in a bold pattern, and what it tells us is that the emotional perceptions may be challenged by three alternatives, none of which is a good choice! One direction will cause a release of destructive energies, one will have us put the ego first (in detriment to all other considerations), and the third may ask us to subsume the individuality to the group. What should we do? The first thing is to recognize the transience of this emotional challenge; it arrives no sooner than 3AM and is over by noon Pacific time, so not acting on this may be our biggest priority. Second, once the Moon moves on, the T-square with arm of Pluto will still be in place; now perhaps it’s time to look at the Cardinal energies for the punch they may be packing at this time.
Of course, Cardinal energies urge us to ‘do’, and we know this just isn’t a good time for that; at this point, we may feel a great deal of frustration, as this rather threatening scenario has been more or less in place for a long time. We are tired of the threat of loss and destruction, tired of the threat to our autonomy from the group, tired of the aggression of others threatening our ability to create and express through the individuality. It’s an exhausting dynamic, but we can actually get off the merry-go-round for a bit, with just this thought: it’s not the right time to act, so we don’t even have to entertain these energies for a while. Period.
The above is from the current ECLIPSE Weekly Aspect Digest—get yours here!
but, but, but….. (what if it is time to act? how can you be so sure?) blubber, blubber boo- hoo…
Im going to act anyway (he he)
You go right ahead, guru–you know the rules, like if you’ve considered something prior to the retrograde, it may be perfectly all right to go forward, as you return to the idea–and of course you have the details of this retro in ECLIPSE. Nice to hear from you!
omg that sucked majorly, (why don’t I ever listen?) you were right.
(about afternoon, of course there is still the evening time, he he)
Just the exact thing you wrote is happening. Tired of the threats of loss/destruction, threats to our autonomy, threats to our ability to create from the group. I have cardinal angles. I just moved cross country figuring it’d be a good move, back to my roots, and I am finding I’ve changed to much to stay here. After all of the moving expenses, etc., could go on, I find myself still out on the limb. Where I was wasn’t doable, but this alternative hasn’t proved too much better…
Sorry to hear it, Nan. With Cardinal angles you may have felt you had to take action, but now that you’ve found you are too different to ‘fit’ the way you used to in your old home town, there are still things you can do, with the most effective possibly being this: you have a big advantage where you are now, in that you know how things work there, and you know how to ‘work’ them–so try carving out a new role for yourself. You don’t need to be what you were, but to become what you’re going to be, so meet challenges with the idea that you are powerful in this place that is familiar–and use this to your advantage, by avoiding known pitfalls and using your knowledge of the area and the people to make smart choices. The worst thing you can do is fall back into old ways (because there was a reason or two that you left, right?) and assume that things can’t go well for you–because really, they can. Good luck, Nan!
