This has been a rough week in a period of ongoing rough weeks. Seems like everyone I have talked to is struggling right now. Life goes on as usual and yet seems infinitely different. Don’t know about you but to me, the usual routine feels abrasive and irritating. And much of what is happening “out there” is the stuff of nightmares.
We are truly in a Portal, not quite on either side and still experiencing the disorientation of both. The old age is done, complete, and the new one is dawning but unfamiliar and uncertain right now. We have become adept at staying in the Observer’s Perch, and of allowing all the myriad changes to simply just be. But that doesn’t mean any of it feels good; just that it all simply IS.
Do what you need to do to take care of yourselves and keep your light shining. Don’t be reluctant to ask for what you need. Reach out to others if you need help. And never, ever forget that we are all in this together.
May the nourishment of the earth be yours, May the clarity of light be yours,
May the fluency of the ocean be yours,
May the protection of the ancestors be yours.
And so may a slow Wind work these words Of love around you,
An invisible cloak
To mind your life.
JOHN O'DONOHUE

The Father of the Heavens He has returned, and He brings his past with him. Once toppled from supremacy by the Wayward Son, He is Father once again but now a once-Wounded Father who must rediscover who He is in this new world with full mindfulness about how he partners with the Mother. Our patience is required as He finds his way. The Male role has changed: he is becoming the equal partner. He can be a Patriarch no longer. He is acutely aware that he stands as role model and prototype for the newly awakened Male and yet he knows that habit and ancient patterns might produce roadblocks ahead. Gaia helps as she can but she knows this inner battle is his. His devotion to Her opens many doors and lays a strong foundation if he can let himself trust this new way of Being. Gaia’s very survival depends on his ability to step into and become the Awakened Father.

(Since I am not an astrologer, I see the planets as archetypes, rather than how they play out on a chart. The Pluto Saturn conjunction, for instance, I see as a recalcitrant and reluctant Wayward Son being returned home. Pluto stands next to him with his hand on Saturn’s shoulder, indicating to Saturn that forward motion is his only option. No more temper tantrums, no more resistance and fury. His sins and abusive ways have been exposed. The Wayward Son will take his designated place as youngest son of Uranus once more. He has a divine function that must be embodied. He and Pluto are surrounded by the elders who support this endeavor and act as witnesses and motivation for Saturn’s transformation and prodigal return.)
The Wayward Son returns home at last. Escorted by Pluto and surrounded by the company of Divine Feminine and Masculine elders, he will be returned to his rightful place. Pluto ensures that transformation will be delivered and higher callings will prevail. This procession to the conjunction rings with power and songs of joy as it nears exactitude. This much anticipated moment in time/space reverberates with the potential for explosive transformation. The veils fall from eyes and hearts will open. Not all will fall into place easily but fall they will. Stay steady and open hearted on the Observer’s Perch.
The End is here. Long live the New Beginning.

The president, the predominant symbol of the Patriarchy, wants to build a Wall. This wall to keep “undesirables out” has become his obsession. The Mother watches with amusement for she knows that She and her sisters are here to tear walls down. All walls will go: walls within our psyches, walls around out secrets and hidden sins, walls around our borders. The time of Union is upon us. The Divine Feminine is re-membered once again. Her archetypes stand at the ready and have already moved mountains. Inexorably, she confronts and exposes the Patriarchy. The toxic masculine element resists its dismantling but She will prevail. Balance will be restored on Earth. The Mother has allowed him the opportunity to grow and change but now her patience is exhausted. It is time to set her house in order and She will see it done. Buckle up.
