Meeting the Devil at the Crossroads

crossroads_feature-1400x480

Mercury went direct early this morning in the sign of Sagittarius.
For the next few weeks, it will travel back over the same degrees of the zodiac it was in early December and will meet with Pluto in Capricorn on January 29th.

It could be that something you were working on back in December will start gaining momentum by the end of the month. An internal process is ready to be externalized.
Some ideas are taking shape and gaining traction. Important clues or answers are finally coming to you that will illuminate the path ahead.

Since Mercury is heading towards Pluto, the importance of honesty is crucial. Lying will only slow down the process. Speak your truth even if it’s a difficult one. Taking shortcuts might help you in the short term but at what cost? Be willing to face a difficult process. Acknowledge your progress.

If you find yourself at a crossroad, choose the path that leads you to your heart’s integrity.

Week of July 25th 2016

Hi everyone!

I am back to my astrology practice after a 4 months hiatus. I will continue to keep my approach to social media as intuitive as possible, meaning I do not want to spend my days sitting at my computer. But I will be updating and participating here more often now that I have more time to write.

I am also back to my consulting practice full-time if you want to book a reading via skype or order a pre-recorded reading from me. You can find more information about my offerings and book a reading ☞ here.

The astrology for the week is keeping us at the edge of our seat. There is a lot of shifting and churning happening on an internal level but also on the world stage. I think we can all feel/intuit that this period is an important historical turning point. (In our personal story and worldwide).

I feel like it’s essential to stay present and to not let anxiety creep up. Especially with the media and information overload hyping up all the drama, war and violence. Everyone is craving simplicity and there is also need to put some sort of ”buffer zone” around our psychic space. This can be difficult when we connect all day long to each other and the ”interweb”. A lot of people around me are keeping up a meditation or prayer practice in one form or another to stay centered.

Hope everyone is doing good and finding some quiet time with friends, in nature or whatever else makes you feel whole.

A point of saturation

Venus/South Node in Pisces at the moment. Have some compassion for yourself. It can feel like a strange mixture of love and disgust all at once. Some ugliness will surface and that’s fine. It’s a bit confusing and it might seem like the light is there but somehow just out of reach. Tolerance and patience for whatever state of mind you find yourself in will help. No need to jump to conclusion about your shortcomings or some other imagined faults. It might hurt a little but there is no need to nail yourself to the cross. You’re going to be ok.

Pisces Season

The Sun will be in the mystical waters of Pisces from February 19 to March 20th. Reality takes on a different meaning here and our attention turns towards altruistic and compassionate ideals. There can be an increased sensitivity to the suffering of the less fortunate. This time period before spring, marks the shedding of the less desirable qualities like selfishness in favour of empathy and devotion.

Here we meet the dreamers, the poets, the mystics and the seekers of truth who trade the burdens of reality for a seed of eternal wisdom.

 

Lilith speaks

I tossed and turned all night.

Seeing the Lilith glyph in my head. Making connections between charts, transits, people, events. Not awake, but not sleeping.  Something else.  My dad calls it working at the office. I call it Mercury-Pluto conjunction.  Obsessing over something until the insights get squeezed out.

Unknown
Earlier yesterday, a friend that lives close to my house dropped by. I hadn’t seen him in a year or so.  He told me he just wanted to lay down on my couch and listen to me talk about his chart. His life is not going the way he wants to. He has a child, with a woman that he loves…loves to hate.  He is miserable.  He hates his life, he hates her. They are not together anymore. Friends with benefits, or maybe more like foes with benefits in this case.

I pulled out his chart.  Mars rising in Aquarius, Uranus on the Midheaven.  Make sense.  It’s impossible to put a word in without him cutting me off. I recognize myself. Fuck the world.

Venus conjunct Lilith in the 12th house. That’s harsh man.  Now I get it. His blind spot. Love to hate, love and hate in a beautifully wrapped little package. Aphrodite meets a whore, it’s fun…until it turns sour, than it’s real destructive. In love with chaos. Descent into the underworld through the medium of love. It could be a nice opportunity but one does not leave Hades realm without a few scars.

In love with something wild.

To get another clue, I look at his ex (the mother of his child) chart.  I had it from a few years back when she was still living around here. She is born with Lilith rising conjunct her Ascendant. You can’t make this up. So simple, so elegantly played out. This man is in love with Lilith what else can I tell him?

The symbols speak for themselves. They contain a whole world of experience and sensations.

A key that unlocks a door. It’s a delicate matter.

Life is mysterious
