Full Moon in Pisces: Walking Like You Can See

Is it seriously that time again?

First, close your eyes and breathe. Repeat until sufficiently relaxed. With the events of Scorpio Black Ops, Act I and Act II still fresh and raw (Act II is going into effect just as I write this) not to mention that being just the prelude of what is still headed our way, we get a Full Moon to round us out, before we head back into the ring of the Cardinal Crisis. Aren't we lucky? 

And after that? Well, that's when the real fun starts....

But back to the matter in hand. Ladies and Gentlemen, listen very carefully, because this is important. This is going to be hard, but I know you can do it. Right now, we are walking a very fine line between salvation and destruction, and the path you take is wholly your own. No-one can walk it but you. The choices you make at every moment define where your reality takes you. Choose very wisely. 

Now, I have said all that before, but if you notice the warning is a bit more desperate and there is definitely some fear in my words. That's because you are going to need to draw on every bit of strength you have and everything you have learned since the Disaster Astro started. Why? Because making the right choices, now, when it couldn't be more crucial, is going to be damn difficult. 

You see, this is a Pisces Moon. This is not known for the clarity it lends (although it is possible, usually through some religious epiphany) or for its honesty. No, this Moon is more known for its ability to leave you blind. It will trick you and leave you in the dark, wallowing in self-pity. And its very involved with Neptune, so whatever I said previous goes double.

Next factor: Chiron. Very important this time around, Chiron is going to play the cruelest torturer. Your deepest fears will be thrown at you and you will be expected to handle them- all of them, all at once. Ladies and Gentlemen, this is the master class. 

Mars and Pluto are also involved, known for making you stand up and be strong enough to make very hard decisions (usually because of some impetus that they themselves plant!) and WILL help you grow, for the better.  

So, while you are stumbling around in the dark, your greatest fears are walking right along with you and they can get you at any time. It is open season on you. And you will have to walk straight on, head held high, as though you are completely aware of everything around you and are not chuffed by it in the slightest. Even though on the inside you are having a nervous breakdown and are paralyzed by your fear. Oh, and dont even think about stopping to rest, not even for a second. You have to keep moving. You have to stare your fear dead in the face until fear is afraid of you.

The good news? Well, you have the tools you need already in hand. Two super-long transits this year gave us permanent gifts, and they will see you through if you call on them- The Mars in Virgo transit and The Venus Transit in Gemini. What you learned during these times will be key to getting through this moment. And it is just that- A moment. It wont last forever. 

The other good news? Pisces moons are pure dead magic. Seriously. You can tap into them and they can help you do just about anything. The more impossible the challenge, so much the better. Which is good, because we are going to need it...

The other other good news? Think about it for a second. If you make it through, what on earth will be able to stop you then?

The Sun and Moon- Well, we touched on Chiron a bit up there, but know that you will grow so much from the experience of facing your fears. This will help provide that much needed impetus for you to take charge of your life. Keep your head high. A quincunx from Uranus supports this, and challenges you to make bold choices that you had never even considered possible before. A sextile/trine to Mars walks with you through the darkness and inspires you to be strong and keep fighting. A trine/sextile to Pluto will challenge you, torture you and kick you when you're down, but the end result is to make you absolutely untouchable and unbeatable. This is the type Astro that makes for heroes. A square to Chariklo stresses the need for you to keep healthy boundaries in your life, it will help you stay sane if you focus on finding balance. Don't overcommit yourself. A trine to Crantor shows that if you involve yourself in the business of those around you right now, you will find yourself caught in the crossfire when it (inevitably) goes to shit. A sextile to Kronos asks you to take a look at what action you are taking to move forward. Re-assess your situation and adjust your trajectory accordingly. A sextile to Poseidon does nothing to lift the confusion, only exacerbating it. A trine to Kassandra helps to pierce the veil somewhat, however there is a very probable potential that what you see isn't really the whole story. A square to Hidalgo tests the boundaries of your patience and ability to stay zen in the midst of this chaos. A sextile to Siva helps with this, but only as much as you are willing to let go of your attachments so that something better can take form in the absence. A square to Phaethon warns against the dangers of rash action and taking on too much, too soon. Take it one step at a time.

Mercury- Everyone's favorite junkie heads back to School and gets ready to move back to his home turf (allegedly) of Virgo. Til then, expect a few more dramatic outbursts of epic proportions. He does like to put on a show, bless his black little heart. Right now, however we have a late-breaking sextile to Saturn, laying the foundation for something big. An opposition to Neptune confirms this, but dont allow the details now to bog you down. Have the cojones to chase down your dreams and then pounce like a jungle cat when opportunity presents itself. A square to the Nodes indicates progess will be slow at first, but hard work and time invested will pay off. A trine to 1992 QB1 (I really need to do a TNO Watch on that one...) indicates that you will be given invitations to take a new path, but to do so you need to move past the ideas you formerly held to be true and binding; More importantly, when the invitation presents itself, you need to say yes, and do not hesitate. When this happens, you cannot allow any outside factors to influence your choices, you must own them as yours. Take the out that is given to you and start a whole new journey (All of time and space- Where do you want to start?). At some point you will need to make the changeover from planning to action. Watch for this moment. A square to Diana indicates that this may come about after your freedom is restricted, or somehow impinged upon. A square to Sphinx warns that you will need to make your decisions without being in full command of the facts, and you wont know exactly what you are getting yourself into. A leap of faith is required. An opposition to Lilith shows that your choice will kick up a shit storm, and hopefully you have the good sense not to stick around for it. Don't focus on the consequences right at this moment, worry about your own future.

Venus- Guys, I wish I could tell you that the one bright spot is going to be relative ease when it comes to relationships, but that would be a glaring lie. We start out with a square to Saturn, setting the tone for events to come. Expect ultimatums, serious conversations, endings of what has run its course, and lots and lots of facing facts. Thankfully, drama is at a minimum. A quincunx to the Nodes allows for some challenge to this, and it is possible to weather storms of this nature. Turn it to your advantage and grow stronger together. A sextile to Sedna indicates that no matter how it turns out, you cannot let it stop you. You need to keep living your life, no matter what. Stay strong, and keep singing your song even in the halls of Hell. Shit, especially when you find yourself in Hell. A square to Minerva shows that it is hard to make the smart choice, but it is worth it in the end. A trine to Eros indicates that when in doubt, listen to your passions. Follow what makes you come alive, and it wont steer you wrong (insert clever dowsing rod joke here). A trine to Panacea warns against settling for a temporary fix over routing out the issues now. It will only get tougher as time goes on.

Mars- Freshly in Scorpio (one of his favorite signs) Our Boy dispenses with the diplomatic approach and starts readying for a full-scale assault on all who have wronged him. A sextile to Pluto and a quincunx to Uranus tell you to be prepared for anything. Things will change much more rapidly for you now. A trine to Chiron allows you the freedom to be vulnerable. Own it, and use it to gain more awareness and a fresh insight about your situation. Other than that, not much to speak of, just a sextile to Icarus, telling you to take action towards obtaining your personal freedom; and a conjunction to Hopi, telling you to go outside and get out of your headspace by connecting to the world around you. Go walk in the woods, it'll do wonders for you.

Jupiter- Taking great care not to miss this section, after what happened last time. An opposition to Ixion warns you to make your choices wisely, and don't allow your baser desires to lead you astray, because an embarrassing downfall will be in your future if you do. A conjunction to Vesta makes it a little easier to stay on the up-and-up, as long as you have a little faith. A square to Borasisi warns you to be painfully honest about all you do, no falsehoods allowed. Seriously, don't lie to save your own skin this go around- It will not end well for you. Own up to your mistakes and it will go much better for you. A trine to Zeus (Seriously? Now you're just messing with me, cosmos) makes it very easy for that darker part of you to present itself HOWEVER if you play it right, it will bring out the best in you instead. Stay honest and upright, remember who you are and what you stand for, and most of all, allow yourself to have faith in yourself and those around you. A conjunction to Itokawa warns against taking unnecessary risks, and recommends careful action in order to win the day.

Saturn- The time is almost upon us, Ladies and Gentlemen, not long now. A trine to Ceres shows that the focus has rapidly shifted from issues of long-term scope to day-to-day matters. A bit of perspective shows these are actually the same thing. Focus on the here and now, and let the big picture take form by itself (yet always keep a general idea of where you're headed!). An opposition to Bienor suggests that pragmatism is at odds with your desire to help others out of their situation. Help yourself first, but not at the expense of your fellow man; Raise up instead of step on. A conjunction to Astraea and a sextile to Urania recommend that you judge the situation from the outside, with the practiced eye that has aided you during this transit, and involve yourself only when the time is right to do so. A sextile to Hera helps you make it work, smoothing over ruffled feathers and encouraging everyone to get along until this is all over, and basically just being the glue that holds your little crew together. Make an effort to be more accommodating of others.

Uranus- Bingle bongle dingle dangle, yickedy doo, yickedy da ping pong, lippy-tappy-too-ta. Dont ask, I'm extremely sleep-deprived. Seriously though, nothing new here that we didnt go over up above. On to Neptune!

Neptune- Aaaand back to Uranus. No, but seriously, the ruler of this lunation (because Mercury cant be trusted for a second) is acting innocent at the first degree of his sign, trying desperately not to get caught associating with any of the other miscreants. A square to Asbolus turns the focus to matters of a more... well, material nature. Trust your instincts here. A square to Hybris can be an indicator of your pride tripping you up when it can make the most impact. Stay humble. A trine to Isis definitely ups the chance for magic to happen, as long as you put the work in to clear the way. A trine to Hades confirms this. Miracles happen when you stay dedicated and work your ass off while those around you are wishing on a star.

Pluto- Ahh, Stormageddon. We've missed you around here. And you brought along your dangerous little friend Typhon with you, oh how nice. Well, its a square between the Ultimate Destroyer and the Lord of Death. What could possibly go wrong there? Total chaos, you say? Noooo, im sure it will be fine. And with Siva opposing and Teharonhiawako sextiling, trust that there will be a lot of breakdown in your life, starting now. Echoing my prior advice, dont hang on desperately, this is all about the new way forward. Let it go and move on. An opposition to Kronos confirms this, although he suggests that you may have to give up on some things that you thought you wanted but were actually completely wrong for you. These things happen, trust in the process.

Scorpio Black Ops, Act II: North Node of The Moon into Scorpio- La Petite Mort

Alright Ladies and Gentlemen, I have had enough of these motherf*%$ing snakes on this motherf*%$ing plane! Oh wait, wrong movie. Well, same sentiment, I suppose.

Lets talk about something that does not get anywhere near the attention it deserves: The Nodal Axis of the Moon. First off, they dont exist (as in they arent physical bodies. NASA could never mount a mission to the Nodes); they are mathematical points where the Moon's orbit crosses the ecliptic (the apparent path of the Sun through the cosmos [which is actually the path of the earth around the sun set against the backdrop of the stars, but sure, lets go with the first one, it sounds better] and its where we get the Zodiac, and allows me to do my job. Not to mention, when the Sun and Moon meet up together at or close to these points, it puts on a cool little sky-show and we call it an eclipse. Yay science!) Secondly, even though they dont exist physically, they are extremely important Astrologically. I'll spare you the karmic mumbo-jumbo, but basically it shows what you were born to learn and experience, as well as what you have already mastered that you really need to stop doing (at least in public) even though you're really really good at it.

Anyway, the Nodes are awesome at helping you focus on what really matters during a period of time, as they are in the same signs (always opposite ones) for about a year and a half. Currently the North Node (the one we normally focus on) is in Sagittarius, but shortly it will be moving into Scorpio (Oh yeah, I forgot to mention; they're always Retrograde. Cool, aye?) and it will most definitely be a palpable shift in tone. We'll be going from faithful, optimistic, still-holding-out-hope, bombastic Sagittarius; to intense, pragmatic, and taking-no-bullshit-from-anyone Scorpio overnight. This will cause issues, trust and believe.

So what does this mean for you, personally? Well, look at your chart if you know it, and check the area where the cusp of Sagittarius falls. In the 5th? Expect to be cranking out a lot of very emotional work, and less of a focus on silliness. In the 10th? Hard choices relating to career, and avoid possible sex scandals (seriously, keep it in your pants [Ironically, the exact opposite advice that the 5th house would get]) If you dont know your chart, learn it, live it, and love it (well, try not to vocally hate it anyway).

This is the point where you have to get real, and you have to do it real quick. Pollyanna types that think that everything will work out in the end with no work put in by them will be in for an extremely rude awakening, as will bombastic firebrands that just spout nonsense and dont actually get anything done. Hell, we're all in for a very harsh wake-up call. Be prepared.

But you guys know I wouldnt leave you without some good news. The thing is, all that guano that we have put up with since 2008? Just prelude for this. Remember how I keep yammering on about creating your own way out/forward/in/left? Well, that has all been great practice, because the greatest magic of Scorpio comes after you face down the ugly truth and accept it. Once you do that, it gives you its gift: Creation out of Chaos. Against all odds, Scorpio creates itself after its own destruction, like a Phoenix (one of the oldest symbols for Scorpio). The caveat to this is that you have to be very careful about what you say, think and do, because the effects are almost instantaneous, whether used for good or ill intent. Read up on Hindu thought and learn about the path of Dharma.

But above all else, when you're walking through Hell, keep going.

And keep in mind, this is only Act II....

Scorpio Black Ops, Act I: Mars into Scorpio- Den of Iniquity

Ladies and Gentlemen, we have a bit of a situation on hands, and a very active sky above our heads. Its another Kansas City Shuffle, and we have to watch everything so we dont miss it. First up- Mars in Scorpio (and the Sun in Virgo, but thats a different banana altogether)!

And thank the gods for it! Finally we are out of Libra (insert string of expletives here) and its time to stop walking on eggshells. Ladies and Gentlemen, its time to get pissed and play dirty, and god help anyone who stands in your way.

Ya see, Mars loves him some Scorp. He is the traditional ruler of the sign (before Pluto came up and took over) and still has strong ties to it. Mars in Scorpio is a mixed bag (hell, its astrology- when ISNT it a mixed bag?) but the core of his expression here is about getting down to the nitty gritty, without all the flowery masks of Libra and finding out what is really true, no matter what it is. Mars here has no time for games (but plenty of patience for a well-executed plan) and will suffer no fools. The masks come off here to reveal the beast below. 

There is a lot of squinty-eyed intensity flying around during Mars in Scorpio, and this may not be easy for you, especially if you deal with the public. Mars here makes for easily bruised egos, and has the added bonus of making those whose egos are bruised fight back rabidly to avenge their honor or some such nonsense. The gifts that he brings with him are raw power, ability to smell bullshit a mile away, an iron will and unbreakable focus, so its not all bad.

Of course, we cant look at Scorpio without checking in on Pluto, still rolling through Capricorn like a boss. These two will play off of each other, and will work together to cause shenanigans on a hertofore unseen level, as the gods of the Underworld and War are wont to do. Try not to get hit by shrapnel.

Seriously though, there is a tendency to become extremely callous during this transit. If you start saying things like "collateral damage", "acceptable losses" or "cannon fodder" you may want to reconsider your direction. Unless your life direction deals with cannons (or any kind of high grade explosives) currently (which is awesome, and further proves im in the wrong business), in which case I suppose an exception can be made. 

So basically, we're walking into a minefield. And this is only the beginning...

Step lively

New Moon in Leo- So Hot Right Now

No Derek, not when its still Leo Season... Just keep calm and work on Magnum.

Ladies and Gentlemen, you're going to want to take the time to relax and recharge your batteries now while it lasts, because next up is craziness. We're staring down another dose of the Cardinal Crisis, and Pretty Much Everything moving into Scorpio. Oh yes, there will be fuqery and silliness, and a hefty dose of glaring/eyefucking at anything that moves. Perfect your look now.

Now, on to the other Astro...

The Sun and Moon- Well, this is going to start out with a tight sextile to Saturn and Mars (ohyes, its going to be one of those Moons... Better get your big girl panties on, princess), so drama is a big no no, and serious, sobering reality checks abound. If you're deluding yourself, your ego will be cut to the quick faster than you can say "Sassafras" BUT at the end of the day you will be left with a much more realistic and truthful view of your situation, so not all bad, right? Tons of potential if you do it right, just not the most cheerful skies. And lets not forget the trine to Eris, stirring up just enough trouble to get you to stop causing it. An opposition to Nessus brings some tough love to the table, bringing your animal nature up to the surface so that you can either fall to it or choose to reject it. Not a choice to make lightly. A square to Diana confirms this, but stresses that there may be a middle way that you're not seeing. A square to Terpsichore tells you to do what makes you come alive, even though it isn't easy at all. You have to be your own cheerleader. A trine to Bienor confirms this, and makes it very easy to fall back into old "Oh, why ME??" traps. We are way past that, don't stumble now. A sextile to Toro helps you keep pushing even though you just want to quit. Dont stop now. A square to Sedna shows that you need to deal with what you're missing in your life. Identify it, figure out a way to get it, and then focus on what you have right now. Dont give it up so cheaply, you worked hard for this.

Mercury- Finally Direct, its full steam ahead for The Tweaker. A sextile to Altjira and trine to Okyrhoe AND Uranus AND Pallas Athene helps you to get the perspective you need to make informed decisions, but a square to Kassandra may make you question and reject sound advice, even if its your own. A quincunx to Pluto and Chiron tells us that you may know what you need to do in your head, but knowing what to do and getting the courage to do it are two very different things. Dont let fear and pain from the past hold you back, you're not going that way.

Venus- Our girl is happily rolling around in Cancer, making life generally more bearable, one batch of homemade chocolate chip cookies at a time. There is a cloud hanging overhead, however... An opposition to Pluto keeps trying to encroach on the fantasy and bring the reality into focus, but damnit if she isnt ignoring his every intrusion like its her job (which, here, it kind of is) A square to Uranus and Pallas Athene is no help either, acting like rowdy kids that have had waaaaaay too much sugar for anyone's good. A trine to Chiron suggests the answer isnt at the bottom of your Valium Martini. What's a mom to do? A sextile to Elatus keeps your spirits up and looking on the bright side. A conjunction to Cyllarus can lead you to do too much for others, make sure your own needs are being met. An opposition to Crantor also confirms this, make sure you are keeping strong emotional boundaries. A trine to Deucalion and Heracles can leave you very beleaguered, yet paradoxically gives you all the strength you need to meet the needs of the day. A trine to Ceto warns of unresolved emotional issues that may spring up without notice. Stay on guard. An opposition to Icarus shows that now might not be the best time to stretch your wings; Wait out the storm.

Mars and Saturn- Ah, Mars conjunct Saturn... I look forward to this aspect every year, its great medicine! It can be a bit intense, however! Constructive action is so important right now. Stay ahead of the curve. A square to Varuna tells you to work behind the scenes and get out of the limelight for a bit. It will help you get loads done. A quincunx to Sedna has your focus on matters of the heart; Invest some time with your loved ones. An opposition to Bienor shows that even though the odds are stacked against you, persistence and resolute focus will help you win the day. You're stronger than you think. A conjunction to Isis shows that you will achieve your goals, by any means necessary. A trine to Toro not only confirms this, but ensures it. You will have to make difficult decisions however. A sextile to Sisyphus shows that you are feeling as though your situation is hopeless, its really not. Keep pushing. A square to Orpheus tells you to rally support from your circle, it will be key to your victory.

Jupiter- Gearing up to go Retrograde and looking extremely suspicious with the large black marker in his hand, Papa Jupiter needs at least one set of eyes on him at all times (Don't Blink). An opposition to Amycus shows a heightened propensity for rash action that is extremely ill-advised. Consider all your options and make sure that you're not missing something. A conjunction to Vesta confirms this, and suggests maybe letting someone else shoot themselves in the foot while you sit back and watch. A trine to Pandora warns you against pushing things too far, and not giving them enough time to succeed. A square to Siwa tells you that you still have to do some demolition in order to clear your build site for a new project. Do it without emo drama; quickly and cleanly- A professional job.

Uranus- Still traveling with Pallas Athene, The Mad Scientist demands you expand your horizons and think bigger than you have before. A trine to Chariklo and Okyrhoe confirm this, and tell you to go deeper. A square to Kronos pushes you to do what you want, and have no regrets doing it. Look for authentic experiences that really speak to you. A trine to Hidalgo drives you to speak out for what's right and stand up for yourself and others. Do not allow yourself to be silenced. A sextile to Phaethon has you in the view of those who can help you, and they like what they see. Capitalize on that.

Neptune- A square to the Nodes still has you questioning your path, but dont look for anything to be resolved just yet. Keep asking questions and dont settle. A conjunction to Lilith (the Asteroid, not BML) and a square to Asbolus confirm this, and tell you that right now you shouldn't be focused on the big picture; handle today's challenges. A trine to Hades shows that you need to clear your way ahead before you can really progress. Stay unattached and light and you'll go far.

Pluto- Stormageddon, Dark Lord of All, is in a hell of a mood and has no time for your insufferable and endless questioning! Come back later when something's actually happening.

Til then, as always go check out the Fabulous Starzina Starfish-Browne and her Amazing Rodents er, Time of the Month Horoscope!

Full Moon in Aquarius: The God Complex

Sweet Khakhabaisaywa, whoever snapped this picture needs to be given a medal (Reddit, can we get on this? Im sure we can enlist Shitty_Watercolour to make something up).

ASTROLOGER'S NOTE- So sorry about the lateness of this post guys. A pressing matter came up that demanded my full, undivided attention. All I can say is that I took a risk to save something very imporatant to me, and I accomplished my mission. Worth it.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Its time to hook yourselves up to the Tesla coil that is the Full Moon in Aquarius, so book your tickets to Botswana for that awesome Heavy Metal festival that you cant pronounce and get ready to just wreck the place. God help us.

Getting right to it...

The Sun and Moon- Allright, this one is going to feel like offering a nice, cool, glass of water to a drowning man. Starting out with a square to Deucalion, you have to keep moving even though you just want to curl up in the basement until the Jehovah Witnesses leave and the block party is over. Exercising your social muscles is key. A sextile to Jupiter confirms this by grabbing the nearest bullhorn to shout about it in the center of town. A trine to Uranus shows that something will come out of the blue and completely blindside you, throwing you off track. Stay focused and try to recover as quickly as possible, but don't hesitate to adjust your plans and give your full attention if that's what the situation calls for. A quincunx to Pluto shows that you will need to make a hard choice, and it will take a lot of chutzpah, but a risk taken will pay off. A square to Ceto tells you to be wary of those who do not have your best interests at heart, and when in doubt, trust yourself rather than someone else. A sextile to Pallas Athene and a trine to Minerva indicates that poor decision making now could very easily be your undoing. Stick to the plan. A sextile to Magdalena tells you to have faith, even though the results of your hard work are not immediately visible. Trust in the process. A sextile to Klotho tells you that you have a lot of opportunities to change your story, if you want to; More things are possible right now than you could imagine. Capitalize on the moment.

Mercury- A trine to the Nodes has you thinking long and hard on your future, and vehemently scheming and planning your way out of the flourescent hell you find yourself stuck in, but make no commitments just yet, and dont do anything overly stupid. Keep everything nebulous and pull the ripcord at the first sign of trouble. A conjunction to Dionysius hears all this, and acknowledges that it is really good advice, then promptly heads off to get sloshed. A sextile to Itokawa and Apophis warns against too much fun however, as you never know what kind of trouble you can stir up from an ill-informed choice.

Venus- Our girl is still partying hard in Gemini, but getting ready to mix it up in Cancer and set off the Cardnal Crisis again. A trine to Nessus warns you to trust in your partner; If there is doubt, start a conversation and talk about what's bothering you. Making assumptions or acting on an emotional decision could prove catastrophic for both of you. A square to Logos confirms this, advising you to think before you leap, and be very cautious. A trine to Saturn shows that anything can be overcome, as long as its for real. Sincerity, honesty, and commitment will win the day. A conjunction to Thereus shows that if any change is going to come about, it will be by your own hand- Grow a pair and take action (and even more importantly, take the consequences that go along with it). A square to Salacia has convinced you that what you have now is not what you actually want, and are therefore unhappy. Like I keep saying, define what you want and what would bring you fulfillment, and then go after it with all that you have. A sextile to Bacchus should actually help matters for once, helping to spur you on to actually chase down and tackle your dreams (no, that does not mean go chase down and tackle Scarlett Johanssen, that will get you arrested).

Mars- A conjunction to Haumea shows that you are now faced with the choice to perfect what you have or to create something totally new. Dont give up too soon on something that hasn't yet reached its potential. A sextile to Pholus should tell you which way to take, and it is something that has been clear for some time. Another sextile, to Ixion, shows the potential for some epicially bad decision making, and the consequences of that could be very devastating. A trine to Chaos and to Siva shows that even though the situation may be grim now, and what you have been clinging onto to help you hold it together may be breaking up beneath your feet, you cant let it stop you, because it is making way for something new to come. The challenge is that you need to be the one to shape it. An opposition to Child and Ascelpius shows that the only way that you can stop the raging thoughts and doubts in your head and heart is to move forward, maturely and without drama, and do what you know must be done. I cant tell you what this is, you need to make the choices for yourself.

Jupiter- A trine to Minerva lends you perspective. This too shall pass. Another trine, to Klotho, tells you that you have made the right choice and this is the start of a new day for you. Keep moving forward, and never back; you're not going that way. A square to Hermes may make it hard to find the right words, and even if you do find them, its doubtful that they will be well received. A square to Chiron reminds you that your choices have brought you to this point, it is up to you to accept the consequences of your actions. A sextile to Uranus may inspire you to take swift action to disentangle yourself from a very bad situation. Dont allow yourself to slip back if your mind is made up. A quincunx to Pluto confirms this, and demands that you fight for what you want. It will be a very hard battle, but walk into the arena with your head held high, even if you're not sure that you will emerge victorious.

Saturn- A square to Varuna brings new information to light, and an opposition to Eris makes sure that it is very chaotic and will fuck up your day. A square to Photographica indicates that you havent been listening to me when I tell you to keep your nose clean, or this could have been avoided. Stay out of the limelight. An opposition to Bacchus tells you that you need to keep a level head. Dont hesitate to do what is necessary, however.

Uranus- A trine to Chariklo says there is information floating around that you do not have access to, and it might just prove detrimental if you dont get to it soon. A sextile to Vesta may be holding you back in the name of loyalty. Know when to say no. An opposition to Pandora tells us that this is a flashpoint, and there is no group finder- You have to go in solo. Be ready for insanity, and when all else fails, bail. A trine to Eurydike tells you to start forming an exit strategy, and do so with as little drama as possible. A trine to Hidalgo tells us that if you need to prove something, you need to go all out- be as impulsive and showy as possible to win the day.

Neptune- A square to the Nodes shows that the moment is fluid, and anything is possible. An opposition to Orcus tells you to choose carefully, because every choice has reprecussions that aren't easily visible at the onset. A conjunction to Hygeia confirms this, and tells you to be in the moment, and go with what is true at that second. These days, that's as good as it gets. A trine to Hades tells you that you will make the right move when it counts, just do it with confidence and do not allow doubt into your mind. A square to Itokawa confirms this, and tells you to wait on judgement until after the smoke clears. 

Pluto- Lets see, a sextile to Teharonhiawako, thats old news... An opposition to Kronos, however puts the desire for the best possible outcome for you personally as your main driving force. Aim for the top. A sextile to Eros provokes some very strong feelings and passions in you. Dont allow them to drive you to something you'll regret. An opposition to Orpheus confirms this, but does nothing to keep you from making poor decisions. Dont give in to your baser nature. A sextile to Chiron also influences this, and is a good measure of how far you've come, and how strong your resolve is.

Stay strong guys, and take big chances
