This week Tom gifts us with the Pele Report from his back yard. We are at a peak point of intensity cosmically. He starts off with a wonderful overview of the past year which is a little bit too complex for my own modest understandings, so I am leaving out the degrees.
For the most part, Jupiter in Libra is retrograde, and Venus about to go retrograde Sunday and then move back into Pisces, where she is square Saturn and conjunct Chiron again, where she stations. Time to get deeply in touch with our woundings, Chiron. Those deepest of deep wounds which we have stuffed, covered and denied, and it is this which holds us back again and again and again until we get the lesson. Saturn is about to go retrograde and so is Mercury on April 9, yikes!
Jupiter is square Pluto again is part of this intensity – and still in opposition to Uranus, making everything feel fast and sharp, questioning our power, like we’re getting squeezed to get out all that is not true, all that is not us. Saturn conjunct the galactic center – defragmenting our hard disc, involves letting go of the familiar. Phillip Sedgwick talks about the galactic center – ‘the psyche can very often mistake the familiar with the good.’ This is why men marry their mothers and women marry their fathers – we repeat these patterns because it’s familiar.
Saturn in Sagittarius is the root chakra – survival, life and death – when he hits the galactic center we are all feeling pressure, the old patterns, old beliefs, the old karmic stuff from lifetimes.
In our loving relationships we seek to reinvent our childhoods.
With all these planets in retrograde it’s time to reflect, remember, release. The Universe, Galactic Center, is shaking our foundation. Is our home built on sand, or are there solid cornerstones in our personal truths?
Illusions are based on experiences. The way we look at our core beliefs and challenge them requires radical self honesty.
Time to admit that I can be wrong about what I used to say or feel, I am human and make mistakes. I can change my mind.
This is the year of the end of illusion and it is time to let go of those illusions.
April is the pivotal point of this cosmic alignment. During this period, other people may reflect a lot of shadow at us, calling us to rise, to know ourselves and get real. Freudian slips and unconscious beliefs may influence our personality with the risk of pulling us into being stuck in the past and not evolving. Our relationships from past lifetimes will emerge and call us out to be real.
We have to see our realities as they are. This is NOT A TIME TO GAMBLE OR TAKE RISKS.
We must back up, check it out and clean it out. Grow up and take responsibility for our own personal happiness and well being. Centering the masculine and feminine, we go in and look at our karma and the sabian symbol for Venus conjunct Chiron is the harvest moon – a harvesting of the seeds we have sown, cultivated, watered and protected, or what we have not sown or not cultivated. As you sow, so shall you reap.
If we’ve been under illusions, lying, or out of integrity, this is a time that may backfire. We are all under this pressure and questioning ourselves, projecting it out, may back ourselves into a corner.
Guess that’s what my 13 year old grandson did last night. Conscious, unconscious or not, we are getting smacked. Saturn has to do with 3D reality, and Venus retrograde squaring it increases this pressure.
Keep breathing, folks! I throw a thought in here or there, and this is just a tiny bit of what Kaypacha has to say, remember to come from a place of centeredness and calm. He knows exactly how to advise us, and that helps so much.
This week’s mantra: In order to go forward, I need to take a step back, and clean up all my karma, so I can get on track.
