The timewave of the Dark Night, the Foredawn or Abyss, reminds us that ultimately, as Ram Dass says, there is nowhere to stand, no place of permanence. This information can lead to a sense of nihilism, if we are not careful. A fuller understanding allows for both an emptiness -- the clarity of detachment -- and a recognition that we are constantly being asked to choose our life. All is movement, all is in flux, and therefore we traverse a terrain that requires our alertness and responsiveness.
Understanding yourself as an underworld creature, you prowl with
pleasure for you fear no evil. No, not because you are the meanest
son-of-a-bitch in the whole dam valley, but because you are a player in
the game. All systems are switched on, amping up the alertness of your
psychic field as it extends out into the jungle.
A good day for emotionally intelligent instincts as you traverse through
shadowy realms feeling empowered and vital, present in the game of
Also today you can become conscious of the different space you inhabit, your house, the different rooms the urban locality and also head and emotional space. Each space has a specific function, feel and enables a specific experience.
Move consciously through the different doorways that would normally be traversed with thinking and into become conscious of each separate space today.
Are You Experiencing Feeling Blocked?
That would be Saturn, the son-of-a-bitch!
With Saturn now retrograde, we are asked to be more conscious of our actions, this is especially relevant if you have planets in aspect to Saturn (which is at 4 degrees of Sagittarius). Saturn retrograde can feel like a brick wall but it affords us the opportunity to master the areas and spaces of our own life that are being affected by it. If there is a block in your life right now, that has been emphasized in the last couple of days, then this is Saturn retrograde affecting you.
The first step is to assume full responsibility, without guilt (not easy, responsibility not blame, its not about fault) this empowers you to be able to work with the problem. Next accept the situation is challenging, this will slow you down and bring you into resonance with the Saturnian energy.
To begin with you might need to vent your anger or irritation at Saturn, call Saturn a bastard maybe, swear at the injustice of the situation or feel the self pity that is simmering away just to release some of the psychological barriers to understanding. Write some of this down and then burn the paper, it enables the wall of thought and emotion that veils the truth to become transparent. The emotional resistance might well still be there, but it will be less solid and you can then put some energy into the more empowered attitude and psychic space of taking charge of the problem.
After that get into the space of accepting Saturn as a tough love teacher.
Define the situation on paper and recognize the scale of the problem and accept it as a situation that requires some sustained effort to change. It is best to do this on a plain piece of paper without lines and write down the problem in the middle of the paper and draw branches off from the problem and write down the different perspectives on how it has come to manifest in your life. You can also write down answers to the following questions. How do you feel frustrated, inhibited, blocked, resentful and how have you brought this into your life, when was the problem seeded, how is it just inherent within your life choices and natural expression? Write it all down, then you can know what you think you know.
Without regret or guilt accept it as a lesson and define the solution as best you can, if you can. Now you are ready to start making small daily changes...baby steps, a small action everyday.
It will take a sustained effort to really transform, but you will immediately feel better about your life. The changes that can be made by working with a Saturn retrograde are deeply profound and permanent.
