Imagine we’re in between episodes of binge watching our lives. I was reminded of how we can allow our egos to project, assess, watch and worry about progress toward our goals. We forget to accept the process of evolution. The following section is a recap of how we got here. We can pull down fear and create anxiety or we can assess what we have, what we have done and accept where we are with love.
Thanks for continuing to read.
Recap of Astrological Ages--Pisces to Aquarius
Zodiac means ‘circle of animals’. If you are born under the Sun signs of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius or Aquarius, your part requires you choose humanity and wholeness as central to your development. We have all 12 signs within us.
If you have the Moon in any of these signs, you need to look at your upbringing and ancestry to glean (Biblical reference means ‘assess closely’) humanity (or lack thereof). According to ORM (Our Raw Material) our separation from our rooted connection to everyone can begin with constriction with our breathing. It is estimated that we take 17,000 breaths per day. Start to become conscious of your breathing and consider it to be meditation. Yes, you can cross your legs or do some fantabulous yoga pose, but ORM strives to keep it simple. The automatic connection between your Moon sign and how you learn to respond to life is an ongoing process of evolution.
If you have any of these signs rising, you must appear to play the role of ideal human & as you continue to do this sincerely, you will begin to embody the best humanity has to offer. Know your chart to transcend and embody your chart. Let astrology’s nature nurture you to become the whole person you were from birth on…
Living and Adulting in the Aquarian Age
Millennials created the world ‘adulting’. Those responsibilities that each one has to do to survive and hopefully move into thriving as a community . With increasing access to info and knowledge, you may say ‘I didn’t know’ with less credibility than ever before. Unlike the Piscean Age built upon confession and turning our sins over to a higher power, the Aquarian ‘I know’ Age will not think ‘ignorance is bliss’---unless you’re using your ignorance to Resist The Temptation (RTT) to judge another’s actions before investigating. Our Raw Material's assessment of the Pillar of Ignorance
As we move into the adult human Aquarian Age, collectively our voices are leaving the dualistic guilt/shame paradigm of the Pisces Age. Imagine the difference between a grown human seeking answers of "why are we here?”’ and ‘how can we accentuate our differences while living increasingly inclusive lives?’. First, we compassionately seek to understand other’s desires even if our personal preferences differ. A major question is consensual interaction between adults. No kink or slut shaming allowed. Similar to other personal preferences---if you don’t want an abortion, don’t have one. Once the Piscean Age glamor of organized religion is dried out, then we truly can create an inclusive society where freedoms are not arbitrarily given or withheld based upon which off-planet deity you worship. However, what is done with your bodies is a personal decision.
Often LGBTQ folx are ostracized from their religions and their family homes. Aquarius ain’t having any of that! Hence the phrase ‘chosen communities’ or ‘chosen families’ have entered into our lives. These choices are the foundation to ending any guilt or shame that our supposedly loving families or origin have imprinted upon us. Again in this context, Saturn aka Immovable Object connects us physically (biological sex and traditional conditioning), while Pluto aka Irresistible Force nudges us to look within our souls to sense what our inner truths are---gender and its myriad of expressions. Like betting on black in Vegas, I bet on the soul’s Irresistible Force when it comes to ‘winning’ any gender wars. Pluto often begins by creating chaos. However, in their wisdom of channeling the soul’s voice, He and Persephone (they) reignite your passions for living as you bathe in the love and acceptance of your chosen communities and families.
Writer’s Note: Scorpio is the sign where we privately assess our values. Then, this concentrated water/love/soul sign relentlessly assesses how, when and where to share these values with others. The ‘they’ of Pluto and Persephone emanates from the mythology. Persephone became Queen of the Underworld after her abduction. Elevated and equal to Pluto, yet alluding to the underworld belonging to feminine energies before the patriarchal spins (and lies). Hell, they probably use all the pronouns!
Anytime we’re in Scorpio realm, it is the deeper relationship to each other, beginning with how we feel about our chosen social bonds---and why. These bonds are inextricably bound (pun intended) to our genders--however, we choose to express them. The Age of Aquarius will teach us how to live at the intersection of personal freedoms and collective responsibility. At its most benign, learning someone’s pronoun requires effort. First the effort must have a deconstruction of your ego’s understanding of gender. Realize their choices have nothing to do with you. Any judgement made on another is about where you are resisting that Irresistible Force of Pluto. Pluto searches for your vain belief that we are separate from our soul’s perspective. Love fuels the Irresistible Force particularly when you embrace your misunderstandings and separating thoughts. However, once triggered which may lead to expressed judgements, then fear ignites that Irresistible Force and the person on the receiving end will become an Immovable Object (and rightly so).
Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will. Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them, and these will continue till they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.
Frederick Douglass born February 1818 had to be an Aquarian or Pisces!
This upcoming Aquarius Age demands everyone is treated with respect, dignity and love. When fear is present, confirmation bias and microaggressions are not far behind. The more someone is locked into their position, the more force it will take to help them move---and not move. As we begin to live with a conscious acceptance of each person’s innate Wholeness, the more the paradox of the Immovable object (Saturn) meets with the Irresistible Force (Pluto) will be realized.
End of Part Three in Part Four we’ll focus on the Irresistible Force of Psychologically Driven Pluto.
