February 2016 Astrology- A Breather before the Charge

 

February 2016 looks like it will be some kind of pause before the action spills over in all directions. Both Carl Boudreau and Steve Judd have indicated that something is definitely in the air. Steve said that the first 6 months of 2016 will be still of an uphill battle while the second half is where we crest the hill and can ride down with our bicycles, with gravity behind and below us doing the work and the wind in our hair while we speed down.

Already 2016 has been a heavy year, with the sudden rash of deaths of many prominent public figures in January alone, the Oscars race heating up again on issues of diversity and inclusion and more than just a handful of Tinseltown types talking about the systems of racism and privilege in Lalaland and within the greater United States and the UK (I wrote about it last year as well, no change there – sigh).

And then of course the American election gearing up with the first series of caucuses taking place on February 1st in New Hampshire and Iowa which will no doubt set the tone for the rest of the campaign year.

Carl pointed out that Neptune is the cosmic solvent and that there will be a very powerful Sun and Neptune conjunction on February 28th.

“The Sun/Neptune conjunction on February 28th marks a special moment during Neptune’s tenure at the top of its power.
Our egos have been pummeled by outer turmoil, worked over by inner turmoil and soaked in cosmic solvent for many years now. We have been set up to change fundamentally and forever. And we want to, just not quite yet.
I believe the energy of the Sun/Neptune conjunction on February 28 will overcome our last bit of resistance to change. As personalities around the globe experience this lasts big ‘nudge’ the pace of global change will accelerate dramatically.
The progressive tipping point will have been reached. Expect to hear of preliminary and precursor events as February 28 approaches.
I believe the suddenly enhanced willingness to make changes will soon become apparent globally, on all levels. Resistance we thought would continue to block reform indefinitely will evaporate.”

This reminds me of a geography lesson which I still remember from back in the 7th grade. We were taught that the 3 main types of rocks in the world, which generally fell under three categories were i) Igneous Rocks (rocks and minerals which are the result of the cooling of magma and lava) ii) Metamorphic Rocks (rocks with are the result of intense transformative pressures and geological changes deep within the earth like marble) and iii) Sedimentary Rocks (rocks usually produced from layers and layers of debris usually under water, which over time solidify and become rocks like sandstone).

Change, like the aforementioned rocks, usually happens deep, deep underground for mind-numbingly extended periods of time. We’re walking and don’t even realize the intense, constant but quiet and incremental pressures at work underneath us. Sometimes we’re reminded when we see a volcano blow, and the change is very sudden and in-your-face.

New Hampshire's famous "Old Man of the Mountain", stood unchanged for hundreds of years and then about 13 years ago started to crumble away.

Sometimes things brew for a long, long time unnoticed and then one day, you look again and things just aren’t the same anymore. Something has permanently shifted and you can’t go back to the way things were.

We’re on the brink of something. Some say a new earth, maybe it will be a new philosophy or new invention or something which is a permanent game-changer. Maybe it will happen this month, maybe a bit later. For now, gather your energies and focus on what you want or need to happen in your life. Take advantage of this pause, because I don’t think we’ll get another one anytime soon again.

    Reblogged this on At the Table, On my Plate.

  2. Awesome. Very insightful and compelling. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Yup, diversity is going to be the buzz word of 2016, or at least a little while. Here’s to hoping the chatter lasts for a hell of a lot longer than that. Your post is bang on and I feel thankful that I’m not alone in navigating this nonsense. Here’s a story: My challenges comes in the form of searching for an agent/publisher for a novel (fiction) I wrote. Throughout this journey I’ve been reminded again and again of how opportunity, luck and preparation all have a hand in things…although I also see that being born into the right group had a marked impact on the equation as well.

    I know getting published is hard regardless of who you are since the industry is struggling to stay alive/relevant, but as a person of colour I argue it is at least 250% harder. To take the analogy from the outset of your post it’s a bloody Tour de France stage in the Pyrenees to get someone on board with your stories/vision when they’re looking for stories/visions that mirror their own, think: white, middle/upper class woman has gone through some sort of existential crisis and struggles for 2/3 of a book until she finally sees the light of day and finds herself through a) yoga, b) starting a business, c) getting married, d) travelling, e) having kids, f) volunteering in a third-world country because if she can’t save herself she can at least save others, or g) some other right-as-rain ending that either waters down the bittersweet heartache that life can be or scrambles to make sure everything is happy forevermore. Because, hey, there are only happy endings in North America. Unless you are a person of colour of course…in which case your life has to be filled with uncertainty, hardship and heavy moral choices that either lead you to redemption or back to square one. #ofcourse

    Right, rant is over. I think I’ll start a new blog where I can blather to my heart’s content about this issue. To that end, thanks for the inspiration EER! 😉

    Killer Roy quote by the way. What a luminary.

    • FTI, You hit the nail exactly on its head. The reason why these cliched narratives continue to be presented is because there is a market for it and it also mirrors elements which many of the decision-makers and gate-keepers can relate to, persons like producers, directors, publishing editors, studio heads, editorial boards etc.

      I positively LOATHED “Eat, Pray, Love” but the reason it became such a massive phenomena is because there is huge market segment of white, affluent, educated women 35+ in age who could relate to Elizabeth Gilbert, its a narrative which mirrors their own. At this stage, mainstream cultural decision makers are starting to cannibalize themselves which is why they’re short on original ideas which would explain why many studios now have to resort to making films based on 1970s TV shows. Also, to be honest, I’m not really sure they even care or are interested in hearing other narratives unless A) it has something they can profoundly relate to and B) Its guaranteed to make a fuck-ton of cash. I think it was Joseph Campbell who said that any culture that stops or is incapable of creating new mythologies and archetypes is essentially a very, very dangerous spot to be in and is a culture in decline.

      Let me know when you start that blog up, I’d be more than happy to contribute in any way I can.
