RIGHT! So it’s a Cardinal Crisis Moon. We’ve been here before, we know whats up. We can do this, y’all. This is not what is going to destroy us, that is for damn sure! There is too much on the other side of this that we need to see! WE CAN DO THIS SHIT. This Moon, however, cannot handle us.
Before I go into it, let me remind you- JUPITER IN LEO IS UP NEXT. You can do this, I swear to you. This is the Cardinal Crisis. This is the storm before the calm. Even though it isn’t the most pleasant experience, you will do yourself a disservice if you don’t stay present in it and fully experience it for yourself- The Cardinal Crisis is half over, and as insane as it sounds, you will miss it once it’s over. This is an epic time to be alive, and we need to experience every second of it, the amazing and the terrible. The way this goes will, as always, be up to you and your choices. For starters, I am highly aware that I am taking liberties with the orbs. This is not news, I tend to do that. This Astro is reminiscent of 2010, when Saturn was still in Libra. Gods, who thought we’d ever miss THAT? Anyway, all the Cardinal signs are represented, Sun in Cancer, Moon in Cap, Uranus (and Eris) in Aries, and Mars (and a whole host, including Ceres, Vesta, and the Node) in Libra. This is the checkpoint, halfway. What was started in 2010 will be tested. This is where you prove yourself and what you have learned.
So lets get into it, shall we?
The Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars- I KNOW, RIGHT?!? This is an epic Moon and it will take everything we have… again. Haumea, one of the new goddesses of the age, a minor planet who I will be looking at in my new series over at Astrolosophy/Agent64, tells us that our hard work is about to pay off. We have been struggling and bleeding to birth new lives for ourselves, create new patterns and paradigms. The work has been seen, and like a mother about to give birth, it is almost time for them to enter the world. Klotho and Arachne confirm this, helping us to get the details down and making sure that what we create is just perfect. It is not a bad thing to take pride in what you are doing. Salacia and Apollon ask us one final time to check internally and make sure that what we are creating is coming from us, and no one else. Once it’s out there, there is no going back. It cannot be unmade, as confirmed by Makemake. Rhadamanthus and Eurydike ask you whose story you are actually telling, yours or another’s? Ensure that you know that answer before you proceed. Ceres, Hygeia, Industria, Charilklo and Vesta all demand that in this very difficult time, you do not neglect yourself and your needs, because if those are not met, how can you take care of the needs of anyone else? Cupido and Hekate bring up questions of your desires- what is it that you truly want? What do you need to get to the next step? And what are you willing to do to get there? Pandora and Damocles echo this, and hint that there may be more to getting what you want than you know…
Jupiter- FINALLY! He is almost out of Cancer and into Leo. Y’all know I have been more or less obsessing over this transit since Jupiter was in Gemini. This is the big one, its major. This whole past year has been one of major growth, and while not easy, has nevertheless been hugely Jovian. Rhiphonos cheers this on, and warns you not to get thrown off course now, but rather drive forward- kick on the afterburners toward your goals. Salacia and Eurydike confirm this, showing you your heart’s desire- You can see it right there, and it can be yours, if you only reach out and take it! That journey may take you to some dark places however, as evidenced by Admetos (and Eurydike again). Apollon and Makemake help you realize your strength is more than enough to get you through, however.
Saturn, Chiron, Uranus, and Pluto- And so we get to the other side of the Astro. Honestly, this feels like two armies about to clash with each other on a forlorn hill in the light of midday, armor and swords glinting in the distance… Okay, full disclosure- I’ve finally gotten around to watching Game of Thrones. Also I’ve decided to start my own noble house, House Lux, but more on that later. Sooner than we realize, we will see Saturn in Saggo, but not today. The Yod/Wedge aspect is bringing back all sorts of things from Jupiter’s transit of Cancer- This is your final exam before the next class. Uranus is, somewhat oddly, the one running between the camps and trying to broker peace, BUT ensuring that he gets what he wants out of the conflict. Juno and Pallas Athene help here, allowing you to deftly play the game, on both sides. Do not lose sight of your endgame now, it is almost upon you, say Siva and Apollo. Lilith and Chiron warn you to beware of the weaknesses of yourself and others, and to take that into account in your plans. Elatus and Echeclus tell you that carving out time for you to stop and de-stress is essential to your happiness. Sappho and Aphrodite warn of Astro-weirding in the love department, cue undead exes and torrid affairs. Atropos tells you just how to deal with that nonsense- cut away and rise above! Astraea confirms this, adding that if all else fails, shut down the conversation and disappear, they’ll think you’re just mysterious and complex. Hybris and Deucalion expose how low you are currently feeling- This will pass, I promise. Just keep on your grind and do whatever you have to in order to make it to Jupiter in Leo.
Neptune- DO NOT BITE OFF MORE THAN YOU CAN CHEW! Pace yourself! Phaethon warns that if you refuse to do this and overextend yourself, you will crash and burn in such a way as to become a cautionary tale for years to come. Honor your self enough not to do that. Asbolus has you stressing and worring about the future, Bienor is trying to trip you up with doubt and fear right along with that. Thereus and Circe however, promise that if you stay calm, and know your limits while doing everything you can to maximize your chances for success, you will do amazing things.
One more time, y’all
