I lay my burden on your feet
I’m dropping my coat
I’m walking naked
Offer to your sight
My lost soul
Who can’t take it anymore
Lift up your arm and let down your scythe
As with you we are equal
I am so cold
Hear my voice
Bless my faith

If we are locked up
Then that is given to us
Will I be able to do it?
Can I take off?
What if I fall?
What if I die?
Yet we spread our wings
Let us test our almost forgotten faculties
Finally give in to the call
Letting the elements kiss us
Then one last look
To those we’re about to leave
Then comes the start
No need to cry
And I didn’t even fall
I was right to go
Marushka - 27th October 2021
(translated from French)
How do you feel just a few hours after the Full Moon? Some of you are contacting me in private to share the intensity of what they are going through and what is certain is that things are brewing!
Yes, we are entering the final straight line of the transformation process in matter, in the structures of our body, of our psyche, of human society. This major upheaval coincides with the transit of Pluto which entered the sign of Capricorn in 2008 and which will end in 2023/2024. To find out in which area of your life this process of transformation of structures will act the strongest, refer to the house or houses of your birth chart where are located the 30° of Capricorn.
Last straight line therefore because we are in 2021 and that everything that has not been previously transformed will not resist for a very long time. With Pluto, changes are more undergone than chosen in consciousness and no one escapes from what must happen. So what have you started in your life in 2008 and for which you have about two years of transformation before moving on? What, then, began in society in 2008 and which still makes the very foundations of this society move again and again? Hint: the banking and financial crisis of autumn 2008 was the highlight of the global economic crisis of the 2000s.
Pluto being a planet with a slow revolution, it is considered to be a social planet, it means that its effects concern as much the totality of individuals as the individuals separated from each other. I remind you that society exists only because it is the sum of several individuals who are the origin of the society they built. That is why it is said that society can be only transformed if each individual is transformed beforehand.
Last sweep, then, for the next two years. Those who think that the hardest is behind them will quickly find that no, what we have experienced in the past two years was only the continuation of the introduction of what is on the horizon. For others, the coming period is just another opportunity to take more and more power over themselves, their ability to make choices, to make decisions, to take conscious action in order to acquire real autonomy and internal responsibility. Because after Pluto in Capricorn, the planet of transformation will pass through Aquarius, of which the Master is Uranus, planet of the new, of the unpublished, of humanism, but also of new technologies and of a mind far removed from any emotional excess. Will humans be replaced by machines more than they are already? Where will be the individual freedom that many claim without necessarily being able to manage it? But that is another story... Let us live the present moment by accompanying the changes that we want to see born in the world, because yes, we are indeed, as much as we are, creators of our reality!
There is no master if there is no slave, there is no slave if there is no master. Or how to become self-sufficient and responsible in order to interact in a more just and equitable way for both ourselves and the community.
When the Moon will be full, all previously retrograde planets will have resumed their direct march releasing the fruit of our discoveries and reflections, but also our frustrations and other exasperations.
Here is a Full Moon under very high voltage! A Full Moon that is located in Aries and which is then tinted with attributes specific to the first zodiac sign: dynamism and creativity as well as fierce independence and impulsiveness. Mars, Master of the sign, is at this moment opposite, in the social sign of Libra. If this position tends to appease a little the ardour of the valiant warrior, his posture in Libra, which seeks to round the angles even if it denies the individual needs to the benefit of the collective, does not allow a real act as well as a tangible harvest of the little that we could possibly succeed in sowing (remember that Libra is a Air sign, connected to the psyche while Aries is a Fire sign, symbol of concrete action and will). As a result, Aries, whose creative power is strongly contained - both literally and figuratively - risks fulminating in an attempt to find or regain a kind of freedom.
Here we are making the big gap between the need to express our subjective truth without putting a filter on it and our need to be connected to the Others by being accepted as we are, without judgments or expectations, in one way or the other. And this is what the Full Moon in Aries teaches us: find or regain our autonomy, our independence by ceasing to seek the support or validation of the Other. As you know, the balance is between the two poles. Therefore, if we lean a little too much towards Aries, we may well become more and more reactive, emotional, excitable, milk soup... violent! While if we lean a little too much on the side of Libra, we could develop even more submission, passivity, withdrawal into oneself, negation of our fundamental needs and thus escape into dream and illusion. But for how long? Change is on the way and no one will escape it...
This Full Moon touches the axis of I and WE. The previously retrograde planets invited us to introspection. Since their resumption in direct march, what have we discovered, updated, brought back to consciousness? In relation to our relationships, whether they are emotional, friendly, family, social, professional... Something has emerged. Something that we already knew and can no longer deny. Or something that we felt vaguely and that is now valid. What is certain is that these relations can no longer remain as they are. What is certain is that for these relationships to transform, there is something in us that must change, our behaviour, our vision, our personal involvement...
What has matured must now take shape in matter and it will take some time. Pluto, who is still in Capricorn for two years, tells us that the transformation will not take place with a snap of the fingers. But the Full Moon in Aries tells us that we are at the dawn of a new era. For ourselves, individually, and for the society we are the creators of. The question is: how will we choose to become personally involved?
You probably know that the New Moon, darkest phase of the planet, marks the beginning of a cycle that lasts 28 days. This cycle is divided into 4 phases, each of which lasts 7 days or 1 week.
Here is a reading that takes the phases of the moon so that you can accompany the project of your choice with more awareness on the inside work necessary for the good realization of the said project.
Take your favorite Tarot or Oracle (or both at the same time), mix your cards and take 5 of them blindly. Place them according to the example in the photo below.
Here are the meanings of each position:
1. you, who are at the centre of the project (card in the centre of the reading).
2. New Moon = what you need to sow to bring about the project (right to the first one).
3. First Quarter (growing moon) = how do you water/feed your project to stimulate its growth and development (under the first one).
4. Full Moon = the best results you can expect (left to the first one).
5. Last Quarter (waning moon) = the steps to be taken to complete the implementation of the project, but also the suggestion of other possibilities for its follow-up (above the first one).
This reading sets the tone for the 28-day lunation period and for a given project. You can redo this reading at each New Moon either to continue the initial project or to start another one. I invite you, for each lunation, to concentrate on only one project, the one which, at the moment, seems to you to be a priority. Inevitably and because you are at the center of your life, the reading for a given project will also make you shine in all other areas.
Before opening a new door, we must first close the door through which we leave. Between these two thresholds, it is necessary to accept to be alone in front of oneself in order to clearly determine, without false pretense, the reality that animates us and the truth that we wish to live on from now.
Being between the two doors is what we have been experiencing for several months and even more strongly what we have been experiencing throughout the previous lunation. With the energy of action on stand-by, did we take the opportunity to choose just as much as to rest and recharge our batteries so that we were ready to open the next door?
The New Moon in Libra announces the resumption in direct march of the planets until then retrograde. A new active dynamic is emerging on the horizon and will gradually take shape by the next Full Moon on 20th October. It’s the calm before the storm...
If we are obviously all affected by the influence of the planets, it is the four signs composing the cardinal cross that will be most concerned: Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. The cardinal cross is linked to the will and the energy of action, this famous action that was paused throughout September. But despite this, the Fire element is still absent from this New Moon, it means that if the desire to act is indeed there, we still lack the means to act.
Translation: a situation/relationship is being brought to light, thus revealing to us the need to evolve it differently, to review a link, to redefine it differently or to express oneself differently within this situation/relationship, to get more actively involved, to stop accepting certain things passively, to review certain rules/beliefs that had been taken for granted.
All areas can be affected, both emotional and socio-professional. I remind you that all the zodiac signs act in our birth chart. Therefore, by updating in which houses the cardinal cross acts in your chart, you will have an indication of the areas that will be most concerned.
Mercury adds a layer since its retrogradation on 27th September: communication can be blocked, answers can be delayed, projects can be postponed. The situation will probably emerge from 18th October, when the planet of trade and communication resumes its direct course.
For all of us, whether we are aware of the stakes or not, it is indeed a karmic load that comes back as a boomerang would do and that offers us the possibility of definitively breaking with a repetitive pattern to which we had most probably identified. Let us take advantage of this New Moon in Libra to try to establish or restore the fragile balance that underlies the relations between beings. Between us and our interiority first of all, to rediscover our capacity for discernment and to stop blindly following the speeches of one and the other. Then, between us and the others, to concretize new relational alliances based on serenity, respect and autonomy of each one. It is now that we choose the beings who resemble us and make up our tribe together.
Human society is changing and the gap is widening between those who want to preserve the old gains, ways of functioning and beliefs and those who aspire to create a more equitable world where everyone would have the freedom to live with dignity, whatever his vision of reality. The New Moon of 6th October is the calm before the storm… a storm that will gradually activate and swell. Let us pursue the purpose we have set for ourselves in order to achieve our objective without fear of the inevitable sacrifices that will have to be made. Something important will soon be born, let us have faith in ourselves, in our ability to protect ourselves and realize ourselves in our truth.
