Today’s Energy 11-21-20

There are greener pastures over the horizon, my friends.

These cards point with optimism to a future we have been envisioning for some time. Yet things will continue to shift rapidly for the next two months, fueled by unrest above and below.

Astrologically, we are headed into another eclipse season beginning on 11/30 when there is a lunar eclipse in Gemini. In terms of moon magic, eclipses do exactly that- they hide the light and reveal the shadow. They are better for uncovering than generating. Our Scorpio shadow work must be transformed into combustible usable material to ignite and fuel action in the coming Sagittarius season.

We may also fix our archer’s arrow on the significant planetary alignment of Jupiter and Saturn in the sign of Aquarius on December 21. This is what is meant by “The Great Conjunction” and it is the first such conjunction since 2000 (plus other unique aspects). Those who are old enough remember the election chaos in 2000 with Gore-Bush, and how the Bush presidency was decided by the Supreme Court.

It is impossible to know what this transits will mean, but many astrologers are making predictions. Some refuse to say, some see through a lens of social justice, and some still think the orange one has been sent here to save us.

This is a good time to insert the reminder that psychics, astrologers, and healers so not exist or work in a cultural vacuum. The information you receive from any human has been percolated through their own cultural cloth. Our worldview necessarily informs our readings. So when you fix your star to a spiritual wagon, be sure the practitioner has an ethical and moral position that aligns with your own. If something does not resonate with you, it is not in your lane. That is not the source your guides want you to investigate.

You must still apply critical thinking to the information you reciece from any source, and the outcome of any situation is bound by the free will of everyone in involved.

photo by author

Today, July 4-5, is a full moon in Capricorn. It is also a lunar eclipse. this makes the impact of this full moon last longer than just the usual 28 days. Momentous shifts are in the cards.

  1. What has reached its peak?

Queen of Cups (Rev)

We are moving through a phase of being ruled by our emotions. A complete release of emotional control brought on by new and unexpected emotions such as extreme empathy, guilt, and shame has ruled the first half of this moon cycle. We are nearing the end of the initial purge of unchecked emotion, allowing us now to enter into a time when we can stop sprinting away from the pain and begin to strategize about the marathon we have ahead.

  1. What needs to be seen? 

Nine of Swords

We cannot bury our head in our hands in despair and ignore the very real actions that we can take to create social change. We must continue to use the means we have at our disposal, including writing, calling, and emailing government officials, to uncover all forms of injustice.

  1. What is is the spotlight? 

Three of Pentacles

We are working on foundational anti-racist skills. Revisiting old texts and discovering new ones. Listening in a new way. Building our toolkit for effecting social change. Assessing what we can do to shift financial capital and create a more even balance fo power.

  1. How am I in relationship to the world? 

King of Cups

Our emotional reserve is our greatest strength right now. We are drawing on both the collective pain and trauma currently being expressed as well as the reserve of joy and strength that is harbored by those working together for social justice. We feel that we are not alone in the fight, perhaps for the first time, and this gives us emotional strength.

  1. What is preparing for release?

Seven of Cups (Rev)

We are no longer dreaming of a “New Age” or peace on earth. The time has come to get up and take action. On this celebration of our false “Independence Day” we waking up to realize that American was never great for Black, indigenous, LGBTQ, or other groups who were never included in the original vision for our democracy. We will not return to the status quo; a new way of being lies ahead

  1. Magic and wisdom of this moon cycle

Three of Wands (Rev)

We have much to learn about how we are to be in community with the new world we are forming. We must continue to gain knowledge, build on skills and relationships that hold us accountable for our anti-racist journey, and develop structures to support the ideas we want everyone to hold as “self-evident” in the future.

Oracle card: Fuchsite (Heart Chakra)

We are healing trauma within to heal trauma without.
