”True and real safety is cultivated deep within, in the felt sense of one’s full integrity, in embracing the authority one has over their human experience. Safety is not avoidance or denial. It’s not banishing discomfort for the illusion of safety. It is becoming increasingly clear that in the time of mass psychosis, the ubiquitous plea to be ‘’kept safe’’, is in actuality a desperate strategy to be kept safe from reality.’’ Lubomir Arsov
The Full Moon in Cancer arrives Monday night in opposition to Pluto in Capricorn. A Full Moon is a time when the Moon casts her light on the darkened landscape that surrounds us, illuminating what is usually shrouded in darkness.
It is said that the Moon is at home in Cancer, a sign often associated with the protection of the womb, the home, the family and the special privileges that come from being sheltered from the harsh realities of life. Like a child protected in her innocence and powerlessness by the adults that provide for her, the Moon finds sustenance and safety in the sign of Cancer.
If Cancer is associated with the Child, the sign of Capricorn which sits in opposition is often associated with the Adult or the Authority. The Sun is currently transiting in Capricorn and is in conjunction with Pluto on the day of the Full Moon ensuring that we get a full glimpse of the things which are usually hidden from us.
‘’ On the outer reaches of the solar system, Pluto represents the principle of regeneration and transformation through elimination and renewal. Discovered in the period that saw the development of atomic power, the Great Depression and the birth of dreadful dictatorships, Jeff Mayo called it the symbol of the great heights or fearful depths to which man can rise or fall.’’
Pluto is a planet associated with the underworld, the unconscious, the hidden and the force that exert control over us from a shadowy place. The deep cathartic changes brought by Pluto are usually pretty painful and often not by choice. Changes brought by Pluto are slow and far reaching. There cannot be renewal without death and when we enter the realm of Pluto we are never far from the process of death and decay which feels unfair, scary, difficult and mostly outside of our control. (Ask anyone who has experienced a Pluto transit.)
Pluto initiates us to the darkness of the unknown and the power that comes from transcending what has invisible power over us. To transcend your fear of death means to live in the totality of your life and power. There is also no possible spiritual mastery without mastering death or at least our fear of death. Death has such a powerful hold on us that it holds us inside our limited, restrictive and controlled lives.
The sign of Capricorn has received a lot of attention in the last few years with Saturn transiting there in 2018 to 2020 and the epochal conjunction of Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn that occurred on January 13th, 2020 at 22 degrees of Capricorn and which many astrologer have observed to symbolize the last desperate attempts at control coming from the corrupt institutions as we move from a 200-year Earth period into a 200-year Air period. Two years after the much dreaded Saturn-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn, we can clearly see the totalitarian impact of such transits as ‘’the powers at be’’ shuffle around to restrict or preserve a semblance of control.
Capricorn is often compared to the systems and hierarchical structure of societies. I could spell it out for you but it’s becoming increasingly clear to everyone that we are currently undergoing very big societal changes that will be far reaching. The authorities have made it their full responsibility to tell you what you can and cannot do. You may have found temporary safety in having to make no decisions, staying in your house while finding comfort in the virtual cocoon of the metaverse. Having an external threat replace the inherent existential dread that is often part of the human experience is convenient but it is not a sustainable convenience.
The Full Moon culminating in Cancer may bring to light the reality of your circumstances and what is lacking especially when it comes to the emotional connections that support and nourishes you. You may have sold your soul to the devil for a semblance of comfort, protection, nourishment and a really good bedtime story but this semblance of safety might be revealing itself to be less than satisfactory and you may have to abandon something, a fear or an illusion before you can proceed ahead on your journey.
Big Brother aka the government/big pharma and their technocratic apparatus can only provide a faint semblance of protection and nourishment for what the human soul really needs sits at the extreme opposite of what these institutions offer. Obviously, to get out of this predicament and return to the flow and connectivity of life also means you have to take full responsibility for your existence and your health.
Rebel planet Uranus stations direct in Taurus on Tuesday just as the Nodal axis enters the Taurus-Scorpio axis. Things are going to get a lot more chaotic, the systems are crumbling. Might as well come to term now with the idea of getting back to normal. Periods of upheaval are opportunities for renewal and we now have an amazing opportunity to step out of these dying paradigms which are killing the earth and the human soul for profit and create something entirely new, that is more aligned with life. Now is not the time to get comfortable.
This world is shrouded in darkness. Here, only a few can see their way free. These few birds escape from the net and fly away.
