This week’s Pele Report fell directly on the New Moon in Taurus, which is all about being in the body, listening to the body, honoring our senses, honoring Gaia, our mother, for we are intrinsically interconnected. Tom takes us through a beautiful bit of jungle as he talks at us, which is such an excellent locale for his style of sharing astrological wisdom with the world.
Mercury still has one more week retrograde, and conjunct Uranus and also opposite Eres, the goddess of discord, which he passed by back on March 29 and then made a U-turn and decided to hang out with her again. Eres only passes by every 526 years, so she moves quite slowly. Jupiter is opposing this Eres energy at this moment, while Saturn conjunct the galactic center is square. Because apparently we needed more discord. Which basically amounts to more of us waking up.
Today, Thursday, the Moon moves on into Gemini, Saturday into Cancer, and then Monday it will be Leo. Luckily, Venus will move back out of Pisces Friday which will help her lighten up as she goes direct and back into Aries, pulling her away from that square with Saturn. We will be able to see her in the morning sky now, and she will help energize all of us, in particular with relationships, personal and inter-personal. This has to do with dark feminine forces arising and rectifying the overwhelming and dying patriarchal paradigm with all its corruption, greed, and war.
We are each feeling this individually, while we are all feeling this collectively. New Moon in Taurus is rather heavy, a feeling which will emanate through the rest of this month.
Uranus coming around to Eres with Jupiter opposite brings us self knowledge, self revelation and all sorts of change and lots of examination of our relationships. Eres comes out of the void and gives birth to strife, toil, forgetfulness, starvation, pain, battle, murder, manslaughter, quarrel, lies, dispute, lawlessness, ruin and her youngest child is oath, which can be the most damaging of all of Eres’ damaging children if anyone takes a false oath. We must stand up for truth and against lawlessness and for strength and healing, unity and harmony and not discord.
Discord at any level brings up lack of trust, hidden lies, and with break downs in trust and each of us looking after ourselves we will ask for proof of things. And during this time of “alternative facts” we are living in doubting times. Yet all that was hidden will be revealed. We are getting to the root of these issues, exposing reality and getting to the end of lies and the end of deception. This is not always a pretty picture! It can take some confrontation, some irritation to uncover the layers of denial.
Kaypacha gives us this week’s mantra from a “we” perspective instead of an “i” perspective because it’s truly time for us to get together and talk about solutions, with and through each other as mirrors of our unconscious. We get in touch with our shadow through the other. The foundation of peace and harmony is truth, so each of us need to stand in our truth and share this with others, because without this there can’t be any peace.
Mantra: There is a light at the end of the tunnel.
It’s there for all to see,
calling us all together
from discord into harmony.
Kaypacha’s farewell: Namaste. Aloha. Take it easy, don’t forget to breathe.
Kamea’s farewell: Rainbow Blessings of Love and Light. A’ho Mitakuye Oyasin.
