...the last Full Moon before eclipses, Mercury steps in shadows, and history made
I tried to get this out before the moon was full, but I fell asleep. So here we are, in the wake of another glorious illuminated night, with another on the way, and it will be the last until the dragons are near. Eclipse season is upon us. Mercury is also creeping in the shadows of his next retro move. Being the moon peaked in Libra, I think it’s safe to say that the scales of justice are out of wack.
I’ve never been a fan of the Red King. Though, I do my best to see the good in everyone. The good I can see in him is his willingness to stand against the ‘deep state.’ And I’m not sure it’s panned out so well. It never does. Didn’t work well for Julian, turned out horribly for Snowden, and even though the Red King didn’t do nearly what he set out to do, he at least stood for it. It’s why so many love him. It’s also why so many hate him. This Libra Full Moon was a win for the donkeys, no doubt.
I felt the Chandra Symbol was a prescient image for this mess:
A very bored woman who is listening but falling asleep.
…Nothing going on. Everything going on. Tuning out inessentials-or, at least the attempt of doing so. I’d wager most of us are sick of hearing news about the Red King. I’d also wager most are quite concerned with the precedent that has now been set (somewhere, Bill Clinton's eyes look around shiftily (a word?), and he steps back into the bushes). We are bored and our lids are heavy. It’s time for a better story.
Here’s the chart for the Full Moon moment:
The aspects which talk to me are Chiron and Jupiter on the flanks to the Sun, with Mercury next door, strapping the saddle to Rahu, in preparation for the magic to come. With Chiron’s healing touch and Jupiter’s thunderous council coded into the light which illuminated this Full Moon, there is clearly something trying to steal away our ‘boredom.’ They are fueling not just the moonlight, but also a hot topic in us as well. Wherever Aries is at in your own chart, there will be butting heads, and incendiary issues needing a gentle touch.
Mercury is also now an evening star, nearly in its pre-shadow, and conjunct Rahu (pre-shadow on the 7th, Rx on the 21st; 5-15º Taurus). The alchemy of all these factors produces the remedy to any ‘boredom’ we may have. Shadows and retrogrades may be tricky, but they are always brimming with magic. That’s a guarantee. Toss in the ever-hungry severed head of the dragon-demon Rahu and we are promised a leap in understanding to what is truly driving us. It’s usually a semi-conscious desire. No matter how aware of it we are, it still has a spell on us. Rahu, or the North Node of the Moon, is an empty page with a pen resting next to it; It’s the unshakable vision of wanting to become what we’ve always dreamed. What we often forget though, are all the trappings along the way. Mercury is here to teach us something about this.
…if you want to go up against the deep state, this is what happens
…..if you want to be a full-time astrologer, be prepared for all the surprising lessons that will greet you when you arrive
…want to be a millionaire, you better understand money and greed and all those tax implications.
You get the idea. Mercury will sextile Mars on the 8th as well. A duo in a near-perfect exchange. Perhaps the energy to execute that idea? Or to defend against it?
And a couple of noteworthy transits related to Venus coming up:
: Venus into Gemini, trine Pluto (April 11th): input from the underground, reshapes our hearts
: Venus square Saturn (April 14th): who said there weren’t any implications to getting what you wanted?
.: Rewriting History :.
One of the themes I cover often is the way in which algos and the corporate media attempt to program our minds in a sly and coercive manner. I feel as if it’s the most powerful and invisible monster we are all wrestling with, whether we know it or not. Then we have the censorship campaigns, the downranking, and the sneaky shadowbans also in their toolbelts. It’s not as graphic as a book-burning event, yet it’s just as effective-maybe even more so. To pin it on one planet would be hard. They are mercurial themes, yet the fingerprints of Pluto and Saturn are all over the crime scene. So, let’s just say it’s part of our current constellation. A zeitgeist we didn’t sign up for.
My two favorite authors when I was 10, were Roald Dahl and R.L Stine. I devoured those Goosebumps books as we got them through our Scholastic catalog in school. So, when I saw that they were rewriting many of their books, to make them more PC and safe for young readers, my hair stood, and the werewolf stirred (somewhere). If you need to be caught up:
And thank the gods there was a backlash because this is what came next here in the UK:
Elon’s takeover of Twitter orbits closely to this topic. Love him or hate him, he has released many important voices from Twitter jail. The app, which has always been a dark place of the internet, a perfect spot to get the inside scoop, like in a dark ally, then exit as fast as possible, is a true battlefront of the information war. Recently, putting labels on handles like NPR’s saying “state-sponsored media” and then this consideration as well. I’m in.
.: Fiat has won! :.
In a recent interview, the final boss, who goes by Chief Carston, announced that fiat has won the battle against Bitcoin. It came in the final degrees of Pluto’s time in Capricorn, just before the ingress into Aquarius which took the crypto world by storm with Chokepoint 2.0-the multifront attack on the space, with the intent of wiping it from the face of the internet. Btw, this man is real:
And then we turn our gaze to the Wild Witch of the North East whose new campaign poster is below. What’s so sad about Elizabeth Warren is that she is such a hawk on the banks, yet brings the same energy to Bitcoin without even remotely understanding it. When you listen to her talk about it, it sounds like Neal Degrasse Tyson talking about Astrology. A really frustrating head shaker. May the battle games begin:
Lastly, this story felt like Mercury had something to do with it. Very pre-shadow in Taurus, even though it hadn’t quite begun yet. TL;DR: Guy gets hired by Greenpeace to make an art installation about how Bitcoin is destroying the planet, releases the art, gets swarmed by bitcoiners online like bees to a hive under attack, then, he actually changes his mind about Bitcoin. It’s a fascinating tale. He tells it here. It’s called the Skull of Satoshi:
That brings us to the end. Enjoy that Moon. Be on the watch for those Ideas stalking you in the upcoming retrograde. I’ll see you next in the actual Dragon Hole…
