Lyrics: Gordon Lightfoot – If You Could Read My Mind
“If you could read my mind, love, what a tale my thoughts could tell. Just like an old-time movie ‘bout a ghost from a wishin’ well, in a castle dark or a fortress strong, with chains upon my feet. You know that ghost is me and I will never be set free as long as I’m a ghost that you can’t see.
Astrology measures “Moments in Time.” Tucked somewhere between “once-upon-a-time” and “happily-ever-after” is a place called “Timeless-Wisdom.” The Moral of the Story in a Fairy Tale is bound in “cause and effect,” with the protagonist paying the consequences of the antagonist’s Sins. The question is who is “protagonist” and who is “antagonist?” Life is a Paradox!
The Full Moon @ 3 Virgo on February 22nd is but a “Moment in Time.” This is the 5th Full Moon at the 3-degree-mark and we complete a mini-cycle at the Full Moon Eclipse on March 23rd @ 3 Libra. A Full Moon brings an adjustment. Virgo matures the child into the adult. Mercury Chiron Ceres and Vesta co-rule Virgo. Balance is the key to Life! Are you the “protagonist” or the “antagonist?” Answer: Both!
Think back to September 13, 2015. There was a New Moon Eclipse @ 20 Virgo, which just so happens to be where Jupiter/North Node are currently visiting. There’s plenty of oompa-oompa for the creation engine ignited last Fall. The Universe never forgets one thought, idea, prayer or ritualized intention. This Full Moon is the halfway point that culminates September 1, 2016, at the New Moon Eclipse @ 9 Virgo. Every “Moment in Time” is connected. Remember that!
Everyone is quick to point a finger at whatever ails the planet, race, gender or person, but the bigger question is why have ‘We the People’ allowed it? Ahh, now we are getting to the “Crux of the Biscuit,” as my grandma used to say. It will take until the end of 2017 to fully begin to answer that question. All in good time. One-step-at-a-time. WHY?
“If I could read your mind, love, what a tale your thoughts could tell. Just like a paperback novel, the kind the drugstores sell. When you reach the part where the heartaches come the hero would be me, but heroes often fail and you won’t read that book again, because the ending’s just too hard to take.”
Mercury conjunct Pallas/Venus in Aquarius | The Inner Activist breathes new life into an old question. It’s important to remember that The Mind resides inside every cell of the human body. It is NOT in “my head.” The body never lies. Why do ‘We the People’ NOT demand truth and transparency from our Leaders? Expect to hear from your Inner Activist. If she is denied she can be a royal bitch!
Chiron conjunct South Node in Pisces | Think back to 2008-2009. Chiron is the ‘wound’ we carry until we learn to give to others what we desire ourselves. Chiron is a Paradox. Have you ever said “thank you” when you really wanted to say “fuck you?” Between now and March 23rd everyone gets to understand the cause and effect of “why” and “how.” Pay attention!
Ceres conjunct Neptune in Pisces | Codependent No More! Time to take stock of the biological spacesuit we call our “body.” We are creating space by accepting that certain habits, situations and behaviors are no longer appropriate in the “new normal” we are creating. Remember when your parents or grandparents told you they had to walk to school “uphill” to and from each day? Check the list of ingredients in the food you ingest and if you can’t pronounce it or know what it is, why would you put it in your mouth? Don’t be shy about taking responsibility for your own body and health. No GMO’s. Clean water. When Humans take responsibility for their own health, pharmaceutical companies aren’t as profitable. Trust yourself!
Mars opposite Sedna | Think back to Spring 2015. Was there a person or situation that was particularly confusing? If so then please understand that it’s time to deconstruct and tidy up that “merry-go-round.” Saturn unlocked the doors to a deep dark secret that everyone carries. What is the one thing that binds all humans together? If unsure, look to the Mars Rx in April @ 8 Sagittarius – 23 Scorpio to deliver clarity, solutions and transformation. If we live by the Archetype we will die by the Archetype. Simple!
“I’d walk away like a movie star who gets burned in a three-way script. Enter number two, a movie queen to play the scene of bringing all the good things out in me. But for now love, let’s be real, I never thought I could act this way and I’ve got to say that I just don’t get it. I don’t know where we went wrong but the feeling’s gone and I just can’t get it back.”
Black Moon Lilith opposite Eris/Uranus | Be kind to the children as they will be in charge of the wheelchair one day. Note to Self – – – “Be kind to everyone today, including myself.” Life is like a Holodeck on Star Trek. What we see is what we have created in our Mind’s Eye. We are what we S-P-E-A-K. Humans project! Spew hate, you get hate. Try a little tenderness with one another. Out of sight is NOT out of Mind. If waiting for others to do the “right thing” one may have to wait until “hell freezes over.”
Saturn square Neptune | In a stroke of irony (maybe/maybe not) Taylor Swift won a Grammy, Record of the Year for 1989, her 5th studio album. 1989 is the beginning of the current Saturn/Neptune Cycle at 10-11 Capricorn. We are traversing the terrain called the “waning square.” The end of the “fairy tale.” We are putting the past behind us, and preparing to birth a “New Normal.” We get glimpses of it well into 2017. We arrive fully present and accounted for in 2025.
When Pluto was discovered in 1930 it heralded the birth of the “unconscious becoming conscious.” Flash Forward! Now, humans are experiencing the birth of the “Superconscious becoming conscious.” Giving form to something that has no form requires time and patience. We prolong the agony by fighting the ebb and flow of emotions by denying hurt, anger or sorrow. No need to nurse the pain, denying or ignoring it. Feel the emotions. Neptune uses a scary mirror at times to force us to explore the Inner Universe. Expect a Revelation!
Pay attention to your body. Check in with the politicians once a week to see if they irritate you. Self-tracking. If at all possible, get a massage, manicure, pedicure, spa, go swimming, eat healthy, drink plenty of water (hopefully you do all of the above all the time), whatever, just do something incredibly wonderful for your body. Calm the Mind. The confluence and convergence ahead requires a strong body and Soul, especially energetically, as we create space for the New Normal! It’s just a “Moment in Time.”
Toss the baggage and “Shake It Off.”
“If you could read my mind, love, what a tale my thoughts could tell. Just like an old-time movie ‘bout a ghost from a wishin’ well in a castle dark or a fortress strong with chains upon my feet. But stories always end and if you read between the lines you’ll know that I’m just tryin’ to understand the feelings that you lack. I never thought I could feel this way and I’ve got to say that I just don’t get it. I don’t know where we went wrong but the feeling’s gone and I just can’t get it back.”
