Cosmic Glitches in the Matrix

Have we been on autopilot so long that we have to blaze a whole new path we have never traversed before?

Are you feeling a little touchy? Are things getting a little hot? Themes for this week are glitches in the matrix, partnerships or relationships that are deeper than the superficial, hot buttons, power. With squares and conjunctions to Saturn, Uranus, and Pluto, we have seen an uptick in mass violence, anger, and the call to be responsible for that which we have built.

More important is the Saturn-Pluto conjunction: are we acting our age? How adept are we at gaining insights from our emotions and then realistically maturely realizing them? Some of us will us will endure what we experience as hardship, depression. Depression is a real state of existence; if you feel that you are in a space that is too much for you to bear, I highly encourage rallying the support of a therapist, a trusted spiritual worker, friends or family.  Now is the time to talk to, reconcile with, or spend time with your father, your grandfather,  and review traditions, the Old Ways, and familial folklore. Revel in childhood memories, or maybe indulge in a bit of vintage.

Or not.

Pluto's imperative is to teach us to let go, and that release can be an all-encompassing loss that feels as if all were passing through an omnipresent vortex. There is no use for traditions and whatever stood before here. Water energy is magnifying, so Pluto will bring his magnifying glass to the undercurrent of all that we have built and ask us the hard questions. Do we REALLY identify with the things we say we do, like the things we think we love, etc.? Have we been on autopilot so long that we have to blaze a whole new path we have never traversed before? These actions may result in what may feel like a small death. Maybe the memories and traditions were unusually oppressive and must be done away.

With the combination of these two planets, it can feel like an over-correctional black hole. This is because we are going to have to deal with our truths or lies, and fight our demons. Completion of this task is going to take a long time and a lot of hard work. The Kundalini we raise during this time will clear obstacles that stand in the way of opportunities for us to be real, to heal.  We may have to scrutinize the primal urges that societal institutions and the "civilized" like to pretend does not exist, because otherwise, we may fall prey to coercion, and manipulation. Because we are standing our ground and laying the groundwork for what keeps us secure on our terms, we may begin to stand out as the dark horse, and suffer a bit of unpopularity due to our subversion of a paradigm. The flipside of that is unpopularity because adhering to things or ideas that don't work anymore. 

Combined with Arian energy, we mustn't be afraid, as this is what asked of us to keep the fire pure in our Soul. As long as we are brutally honest, we should be able to find our way.
