Saturn and the South Node: Let That Shit Go


There’s a tremendous need to articulate a new path now. So much cardinal energy – points and planets in Aries and Capricorn – want us to release the past and initiate something new.

This isn’t so much tidying up.

This is KARMA coming to call.

We face the consequences of past actions – for better and worse— and fix what’s out of alignment.

This is the Grand Reorg of the Century.

It’s only the third time in 100 years that Pluto and Saturn have conjoined the South Node. It’s a  reckoning.

The CEO of the Purge is Saturn.

Through October, he’s sweeping away all the broken pieces that Pluto kicked up in early April — all our old fears and insecurities that are holding us back – to create space for new structures and better foundations.

This is important, life-changing, once-in-a-century work.

Think of this as a purification and preparation for 2020.

As May opens, Mercury in Aries serves as the publicist of this hard-sell.

 He wants us to know that now — more than ever—our success  rests on our ability to be courageous and flexible. And optimistic, even.

There’s opportunity in this shit-show, believe it or not.

Just ask Mars in Gemini opposed Jupiter in Sagittarius. They’re firing up our ambition and fueling our optimism, even at the darkest moments of this transition.

And then there’s the Sun in Taurus, watching all this drama from the sidelines, waiting patiently for us to slow down and steady ourselves. We might want to consider her  suggestion and move more at the pace of Mother Nature.

Inhale. Exhale. That. Is. All.

Wake up to the consciousness we share with the Earth. True peace resides in that frequency.

The 14° Taurus New Moon on May 4 – aligned with Uranus – brings this point home. We must get grounded in the simple pleasure of being here —now.

We must have the courage of our convictions, too.   

Taurus is a feminine sign, ruled by Venus, who at this lunation resides in the fiery me-first sign of Aries.

 That’s a lot of headstrong energy in one New Moon.

It tells me that we are moved to start fresh and take a leap of faith – but with a safety net.

We have a clear idea of what isn’t working. We want to make more pragmatic decisions.

We have had enough drastic change for the time being and just want to make our next steps on steady ground.

My advice: Walk barefoot if you can.

The Earth magnetizes us to peace if we let it.
