Of course, these are intense and dramatic times. They always are when you are shifting from one paradigm to another. The collective has been shifting from a paradigm of competition and "looking out for number one," to a paradigm of equality, cooperation and "we're all in this together." This lunar month will highlight these transformational and turbulent times. The renewal and new beginnings are in the area of RELATIONSHIPS, COOPERATION, BALANCE, HARMONY and DIPLOMACY. You may feel a new impetus to work together to create a win-win in various areas of your life. Beauty and harmony are emphasized, and ART may stand out as more than mere entertainment. Art can be a way of life that soothes the soul in these disruptive times. The energy is swift and intense. This is a time to be social, to communicate with others, to exchange heartfelt dreams and goals. Partnerships are highlighted along with the realization that you will "get there" only with mutual support and teamwork. If you are having trouble figuring out what you want or what your next steps are, turn your attention toward another and seek to HELP THEM with their goals and next steps. More and more you are discovering the OTHERS with whom you are sharing time and space. It can all be so much lighter, more pleasing, more beautiful. But you have to come to agreement and work toward these ideals together. There may be turbulence before the dynamic balance is allowed/created, but it will have been worth the struggle.
Key Astrological Alignments
* T-SQUARE between Sun/Moon, Uranus and Pluto (creative conflict, being "forced" to grow)
The Sun represents Spirit, while the Moon represents the Soul. Uranus is the AWAKENER. He awakens through SUDDEN SHOCKS and DISRUPTION OF THE STATUS QUO. When he is involved, CHANGE is a given. Pluto is the GREAT DESTROYER, as well as the GREAT CREATOR. Her power cannot be denied. She brings EVOLUTIONARY ERUPTIONS. These forces are in dynamic alignment at this new moon, infusing the collective with more energies that continue to catalyze our evolutionary growth and shake our foundations. These are times of GROWING PAINS, but the only way out is through.
Tarot Reflections ~ 10 of Cups (Satiety)
The 10 of Cups signifies COMPLETION, FULLNESS and EMOTIONAL ABUNDANCE. This reflection may seem at odds with the intense and chaotic nature of the times, but it is "right on time." During intense times of challenge and uncertainty, of tragedy and war, RETURN TO YOUR INNER SOURCE OF HEALING AND LOVE. There may be strife all around you, but there is always a quiet place of peace within. There is always healing and love overflowing from your inner cup of soul and spirit. RETURN TO YOU. Remember the love that is around you, the others who love you, your family, your friends. Help each other. Turn to each other. Let yourselves reflect the unconditionally loving spirit within. We are entering a place of completion and fullness before moving into a new cycle. Take frequent dips in the inner springs of love. You are eternally sustained from within.
