Setting Your Direction
Last week’s Cardinal Cross Full Moon is still rippling out and will make an impact at a individual level until the Aquarius New Moon on January 26th and at a social/political level until October. It was an up close and personal reality check, a mental re-set and an epiphany all rolled into one. The only option we had was to surrender to it, not trying to understand it or control it or hide our heads in the sand.
This week tantalising glimpses of radically different possibilities will appear on Tuesday when Jupiter opposes Uranus and Eris. The Hierophant sheds light on and makes wisdom from our collective and personal experiences, like a gardener turning leaf mulch into compost to grow new plants.
Alongside this, expect more physical upgrades with Mars centre stage aligning first with Centaur Chiron on Tuesday then with Saturn on Thursday when the Sun enters Aquarius. Turn any obstacles into fuel for your intentions - just do it. Mars begins a new cycle of wholing/healing of the masculine with shamanic teacher Chiron. 3D healing practices of going over and over old wounds are now redundant, replaced by heart based acceptance of ourselves just as we are. One of the great themes of 2017 is away from self-preoccupation to embodying all your experiences, pain and wounds as a way shower for others who are struggling.

Hard substance is impossibly tough if you fall into letting it be that, but is the prefect basis if you are willing to make it so. All the resistances, crystallisations, dysfunction, and foundational dissonances are great excuses to stop or immense occasions to start. You get laid low if you do not know what to do with the stuff of this world. But if you have learned the subtle craft of world-making, you're best off meeting up against the hardest places and discovering how to turn them completely around--the exceedingly demanding guild of those who dig into the depths and draw forth beauty and infinite power from the brutal and heavy realities which otherwise seem impenetrable. A stubbornly hardworking, impossible-to-discourage craft of reworking the primal soil. Mostly unproductively, mostly learning how forever, paying your dues, never quite getting it right, until there comes a day when even the obdurate bends to the inner design--when the conviction is complete.
