Confess Your Hidden Faults:
Mercury Retro Video,
Full Moon Aquarius,
Cardinal Cross

“...Here is the Cosmic Plug, attached like an umbilical cord to your navel life line.

Here is the highest voltage spewing out in every possible direction all at once.

In that sucking sense, that drawn and quartered magnet,

At once become elastic, 

As you hit the still point in the center with the arrow of silence....”

Verdarluz - “A Sense of Humor”


   Mercury continues to rain down technical woes as he saunters back into Leo this week, remaining in Leo through August, which should at least help our creative expression to blossom more fully.  Yet our performances and creative gear may be a bit threatened by the retrograde wobble.  I hope you will enjoy my free video teaching of Mercury linked in the newsletter.  This video includes a detailed description of MErcury’s meaning in the chart, as well as the planet’s mantra, Om hreem buddhaye namah, which we can all do while focusing on our throat chakra, Mercury’s domain.

   I have also created a video poem called “A Sense of Humor,” referring to the Cardinal Cross, activated for the last major time for both weeks of August 8th and August 15th, when Mars will be entering delicate territory with the planetary behemoths, squaring Uranus, opposing Pluto, and squaring Saturn, thus triggering the Cardinal Cross.  Mars will also cross the Solar Eclipse point of July at 9 Cancer, so any of the issues that eclipse heaved into our consciousness will present themselves for the purpose of accelerating our evolution.

   With Mars in Cancer, we may feel some fiery reactivity in our home situation, or instability and insecurity in our roots may be revealed.  The square to Uranus could create an electroreactive urge to eject out of the situation towards our personal freedom, since the Pluto opposition to Mars could unveil powerful repressed emotions lurking in the shadows.  This tension could peak late Wednesday evening wehn the Moon enters Capricorn and triggers the cross.

   But we have a helping spirit, and that is Mars’ trine to Chiron, the shamanic mentor.  Chiron’s friendly trine inspires us to cultivate the willingness to acknowledge our shut-down points.  Although we may be compelled, even obsessively, to place blame on a situation or person outside of us, Chiron advises us to look in the mirror and confess our own hidden faults.  This means embracing our fears and becoming transparent to our projections.  Those faults are anything that narrow us and limit our true freedom––an undefined, open, non-obstructed state of flowing potential, free of labels and negatively patterned storylines. 

   The Buddhist nun and teacher, Pema Chodron, describes the Tonglen practice which helps us to connect with our suffering in a direct way.  With Tonglen, we breathe in what is unwanted, and then send out a breath of relief for ourselves and for all others who may suffer that same emotion––anger, jealousy, frustration, disappointment...  She writes, "Tonglen is a method for overcoming fear of suffering and for dissolving the tightness of our heart." Through the Tonglen practice, we may achieve an honesty with ourselves, and see how our so-called faults become the pillars of compassion, wise teachers, mirrors that become best friends.

    The Full Moon will dance all weekend long, occurring exactly at 22 Aquarius on Saturday August 13th. Venus’ conjunction with the Sun in Leo juices our creative fires, but opposing the Moon, we must see the true light of our relationships, not as we wish them to be, but as their essence: souls conspiring for a greater cause.  This can help us to serve the community and tribe through relationships that feed the creative flame.   

   These next few weeks, it is best that we act on our intuitive flashes and move the passionate energy through positive activities––exercise, tantric sex, pioneering work and community activities, cathartic healing, and the cultivation of clear perception which leads to spontaneous compassion.
