As Seen on Facebook Today
It seems that the heralded New Day has finally arrived. We’ve been waiting for it since December 21, 2012. The lead-up has been excruciating to watch. Civil unrest seemingly everywhere (Hong Kong, in particular, has been the focus). The French “Yellow Vest” protest has been visible, too, and today, it seems, successful: President Macron has decided to stop the proposed changes to his peoples’ pensions.
In the United States, politics has become very “us vs. them” in practice. The House of Representatives have voted on two articles of Impeachment, but have yet to transmit the paperwork to the Senate for a trial of Trump’s presidency. This action has been promised for this week, by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. In the meantime, Trump decided to take out the top Iranian General Qasem Solimani, as a way of deflecting attention away from his domestic problems, only to have it backfire when the Iranians shot down a Ukrainian airline over Tehran. Finally the Iranians admitted to their “disastrous” mistake on Saturday. That was a first for Iran.
This morning, an alert was sent out to all smartphone users that a nuclear event had occurred in Pickering, Ontario. Then another alert stated about 40 minutes later that the first one had been sent in error. Classic Saturn/Pluto conflict.
I’m Calling Today Twenty-Two Skidoo
This is the moment when Pluto and Saturn become exactly conjunct today. As I’m writing this in the morning, the full picture won’t be visible until later.
Moon Conjunct Neptune
This aspect indicates that you are very sensitive and that you pick up feelings from the people around you very easily. The danger is that many of these feelings will be difficult to cope with; they may make you afraid of the world and reluctant to go out into it, as you must do when you are older. As a result, you prefer to be alone with your thoughts and let your fancies wander wherever they want to go. When you are older, this may help you use your imagination very creatively, but it won’t help you wok out your everyday problems. You must learn to stand on your own and not depend on others. You also have to learn that you are worth as much as anyone else, for you may tend to withdraw when someone acts aggressive. But the adults who help you learn these lessons must be gentle and understanding. Otherwise you will shrink back into yourself. Above all, you must not be made to feel incompetent or inadequate, or you will think of yourself as a loser all your life.
People with this aspect often hide their real feelings and make sacrifices for others that they do not really want to make. Then they resent the person who asked for the sacrifice. You must learn to tell people how you rally feel; if you do not, you have only yourself to blame for what happens. You must learn to accept that you are responsible for your own life. Do not act as if you are the victim of strong forces that you can’t control, because you can control them.
All through these last few weeks, we’ve seen interesting inconjunctions to the Moon. This means that the process has been very emotional, to say the least. But we seem to be coming through the worst, mostly unscathed (except for Australia).
If we can survive this tumultuous time, we can survive most anything.
Isn’t that cause for celebration?
Above all, stay positive!
