When I first started astrologizing over the Syria situation, I looked to today's 9/9/13 date with some concern due to the exact Leo Mars Square to Scorpio Saturn, Moon, and Lunar North Node. This is the type of powerful alignment the wonky ruling wizards dream of. The extreme dark side of Scorpio Mars Square Leo Mars is an out of control tyrant secretly plotting world dominance. Sound familiar?
But what is the bright side? How about the Good King (Mars in Leo) empowered through emotional strength and honesty? Why does this one not seem as likely? I'm comforted, however, knowing Messenger Mercury has joined Goddess Venus in the Libra sign of balance, equality, and justice. If democracy is real, She has a good opportunity to prove herself today.
This brings my attention again to the 1964-1968 Pluto-Uranus Conjunction in Virgo that seeded the intentions of rEvolution now in First Quarter Conflict / Resolution stage as Capricorn Pluto squares Aires Uranus. Times are crazy and we are again reminded of the importance to honor the rightful ways of Virgo within each of us... Devoted Sacred Work and UNDEPENDENCE.
The more rEvolutionary energy we allow in our own lives, the less of it the wizards will have to use for their tragic magic. Have you been called to leave that job to pursue your true calling?... now's the time!!! Called to leave a relationship or to start one? Called to travel? Called to plant a garden? Called to start a band? Called to forgive your father? Called to write a book? It's go time.
I'm additionally comforted by Scorpio Moon and North Lunar Node participating in this Mars - Saturn Square. The Moon brings some Cancerian love to the mix again and North Node reminding us that the soul growth of our collective consciousness is heading towards rewriting rules to return rightful Scorpio. It's time to honor the true emotional experience and expression of our deep emotions, passions, and desires. Let's free ourselves from the belief systems that have kept us from following our highest excitement now.
War without reflects war within. Peace within seeds peace without. Let's find inner peace by honoring that which we've been called to rEvolutionize. The revolution will not be televised, but it will be honorably realized if it comes not the U.S., but from US.
With Love and Hope,
