Saturday’s energy involves dualities which can cause confusion and foggy vision. We see the parts of things, but not the entire picture. If we overthink things, the two hemispheres of our brains will go into a loop that can drive us crazy. We will naturally see two sides of situations, but we need to look beyond this and into the light. On Sunday, the tendency is to live up to the expectations of others. It is important to abide by your own spirit with this. We must reflect the path that our Source is projecting for us – not the path that others are projecting for us. If you remember, on August 23 I discussed Mars’ entry into Scorpio: this is going to reform/refine our level of personal power. Scorpio is the energy of transformation! But since its ruler, Pluto, is the ruler of the Underworld, the transformation will come from a deep level and there may be other things hidden deep below that come up with it. This factor is what brings in the feelings of anxiety and fear. The hard part is standing by (letting it be) while the transformation occurs. Remember, everything is changing form now – everything – but it is leading to something better. By the time Mars enters Sagittarius on October 8, we will be much stronger individuals – physically, mentally, and spiritually. It’s a spiral sort of process. This is the real thing that is happening with this weekend’s energy. It serves to strengthen us. This outcome is good for our everyday lives, but more importantly, it makes our connection with Gaia/Sophia stronger. We come into closer range with her vision, making direct communication faster and easier. This is a great gift.
In the Northern Hemisphere, this weekend is the traditional end of summer. In the Southern Hemisphere, it is the traditional end of winter. Both are causes for celebration, but Mars in Scorpio and the proximity of the Earth and the Sun to Chiron make it difficult to be light and carefree. It’s heavy energy. Roll with it, knowing that the “down” times are serving the purpose of strength. Some will go deeply into the Underworld with this energy and that’s ok because all journeys to the Underworld end in the hero returning with a reward.
