Lyrics: Incubus – Drive
“Sometimes I feel the fear of uncertainty stinging clear and I can’t help but ask myself how much I’ll let the fear take the wheel and steer. It’s driven me before. It seems to have a vague haunting mass appeal. Lately I’m beginning to find that I should be the one behind the wheel.”
You know that one thing that has caused a disturbance in your force all year long (or longer)? It’s coming to an end. It’s time for a chapter to close. Begin again. Choices made over the next 2 weeks will bear fruit, for better or worse, in August 2015. Harvest-time! The turning point arrives in February 2015. How often do you tell yourself *it’s okay to be afraid?* Hmmm. There’s a New Moon August 25th @ 2 Virgo. Clean laundry. Clean slate. Hand-washing. Soap. Clean teeth. A breath of fresh air. Breathe deeply. Exhale slowly. Reality begins where the Fairy Tale ends.
Virgo is the natural 6th House of the Zodiac, ruled by Mercury and Co-Ruled by Ceres (nourishment), Chiron (irony), Vesta (sacred), Isis (Mother), Astraea (Holy Law), Artemis (protector) and Mary Magdalene (Goddess). Full House. Operate in balance. Holding Space. Pisces Collective. Individual (microcosm). Bodily systems. Purification. Organizing data. Systems within systems. Spirals. Justice. Bringing good ideas and childhood dreams to reality, where the Fairy Tale ends. Androgynous. Male and Female. Energetic transactions. Alchemy. Mercury. The Trickster and how “I” pray.
Virgo is a mutable feminine Earth sign. Virgo is the last sign the individual passes through before entering the Gate of Relationship with the outer world in Libra. Organize. Purify. Refine. Virgo is also the only sign with a human in it. Virgo is the sign of the body, ruling the intestines. Sensitive stomachs. Pay attention to your body as it will be speaking to you loudly. We can lie to ourselves but the body never lies to us. Most believe that “life happens” to “me.” Really? Have you considered that “I happen” to life? Big difference. Reality begins where the Fairy Tale ends.
“Whatever tomorrow brings, I’ll be there with open arms and open eyes yeah. Whatever tomorrow brings, I’ll be there, I’ll be there. So if I decide to waiver my chance to be one of the hive will I choose water over wine and hold my own and drive?”
The Finger of God (aka Yod) is pointing at Uranus/Astraea in Aries (I Will) with Mercury (intellect) in Virgo (re-creation) and Saturn (time)/Mars (action) in Scorpio (change agent) providing the base at 17 degrees respectively. Boundaries respected and disrespected. Some are disappointed. Some are joyous. Some are peaceful. All are changed. Surprise, happy endings do happen. A debt is paid in full or forgotten. Letting go. We are each holders of our own personal power. Not power over another. Same goal. Different paths. Pay attention to where the Fairy Tale ends and Reality begins.
Mars/Saturn and Mercury hold up a mirror for the Mind. STOP! Pointing at Uranus/Astraea. Here’s that barrier that obstructs perspective of the whole situation. When any one point of view is confused with all of reality, it freezes into stone cold dogma. No single vantage can possibly convey the bigger picture of what is happening. “Have you naively mistaken one self-image for the whole self that you are,” they ask. Uh-oh! Autonomy. Keep the Mind open to other visions, especially if and when one becomes dead certain about “my point of view.” Moving into the Age of Post-Survival. We are ALL Co-Creators now! The only person who has to live by your standards is “you!” The Fairy Tale ends where Reality begins.
Black Moon Lilith snuggles up in-between Venus and Magdalene at 16, 19, 24 Leo square-dancing with Saturn/Mars and having an orgy with Uranus / Astraea. There will be healing from the hypocrisy. Double-standards revealed. How do we project our own personal fears onto others, especially those we perceive as “different” from “me?” Are you currently involved in a “war?” The “war on _______ (who/what)?” How did you get involved in this “war?” Whose “war” are you fighting? How equal are we really? Who is zooming who? Who wants to “dance” and who is ready to leave the party? Balance Justice through consequence and compassion. Reality begins where the Fairy Tale ends.
“It’s driven me before, it seems to be the way that everyone else get around. Lately, I’m beginning to find that when I drive myself, my light is found. Whatever tomorrow brings, I’ll be there with open arms and open eyes yeah. Whatever tomorrow brings, I’ll be there, I’ll be there.
The question this New Moon is asking each of us is “am I really in charge of my life?” Oh indeed! Think back to mid-March 2014. What was happening “TO” you? How were you happening “TO” life? What’s the difference between then and now?
Reality begins where the Fairy Tale ends. The Uranus/Pluto square has upended “normalcy” for everyone. Living in Uncertainty. Unrest. Seeds planted in the 60’s have borne fruit. Neptune, Jupiter and Saturn will begin a new dance-step next year, September 2015 – May 2017. Get your “authentic self” in order. Hiding in the “light” won’t make the dark go away. When the Fairy Tale ends, Reality begins.
Globally: We are heading to a Re-Set with the October 23rd Solar Eclipse at 0 Scorpio. It’s a “Pluto thing.” Gaining a sense of proportion. October – January. It’s easy for to get tangled up and tossed around if one allows life to just “happen.” There is no one day that it all changes. Wave-on-wave. Day-by-day. Eye-to-eye. Heart-to-heart. Soul-to-Soul. We all share space. With the perceived turmoil created by this massive balancing act please make no judgments. All will be revealed when humans are ready to receive truth. Reality begins when the Fairy Tale ends.
Personally: Simplify. Good-byes and hellos. All are welcome. How is your life inclusive? Are you living in exclusivity? Get out in nature. Take a walk. Get into your rhythm. Feel the tension in your jaw. Then your shoulders. Your forehead and face. Relax. Drop your weight to the middle of your hips. Notice that your walking comes from how you touch and push the ground. Now, put the tip of your tongue lightly touching behind your upper front teeth. This connects two channels that energy flows through (yin/yang in our bodies). Gradually you will find that instead of walking ‘from your head’ you will gain a sense of your whole body moving in relation to the ground, that you are settled into your center. If you want, please go to futureme.org and write a letter to yourself to be delivered December 23rd. In the letter tell yourself where the Fairy Tale ends and Reality begins for yourself personally. You will be surprised in December. Be well! Can you see the line between Reality and the Fairy Tale? Reality begins……and remember you are “happening” to life!
“Would you choose water over wine? Hold the wheel and drive. Whatever tomorrow brings, I’ll be there. With open arms and open eyes yeah. Whatever tomorrow brings, I’ll be there, I’ll be there.”
