This is Your Reckoning: Just Do the Work and Then Let Go

If you're feeling worn out, out-gunned or anxious, you're definitely not alone.

Tough decisions have been made and now we're living the consequences.

An issue or problem that showed up last July or in early January (during those eclipse cycles) may now be reaching a breaking point.

This is Mars-Saturn opposed on the 18°-22° Capricorn-Cancer eclipse axis — an aspect one astrologer recently likened to a meat grinder. Meanwhile, our judgement isn't razor-sharp thanks to Jupiter square Neptune at 18° Pisces-Sagittarius.

This is a time of testing your limits. And a moment when we have to trust that things will work out -- even when we're lost in the fog. (See above: Puppies.)

The Cosmos is showing you how to endure and experience your own strength. This isn't always pretty.

Rather than procrastinate — set small, achievable goals.

My advice: Put one foot in front of the other. Grieve if you need to grieve. But when worry or fear threaten to overwhelm you, put them to work.

Write out a list of fears and worries. Burn the list.

Saturn and Mars can give us superhuman strength when we channel our anger or grief into Right Action. (See Jon Stewart's recent testimony on behalf of 9-11 first responders.)

Commit yourself to a cause. Speak up for someone who cannot.

While these two warring planets battle it out, they're also making tender aspects to Neptune.

This is an invitation to allow grace into your heart. Surrender some of the heaviness to the Divine. Or your ancestors. Or the trees in your back yard. Or do like the AA folks say, "Let go. Let God."

Pray for strength and wisdom. Make that a daily ritual.

Helen Keller's words are especially timely now: "Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it."

Remember, you've endured hardship and doubt before. Just pace yourself through this.

On Monday, we get a moment to breathe with the Sagittarius Full Moon aligned with its ruler Jupiter in Sagittarius.

Take this time to cultivate hope. Try not to indulge your impulses. Be still. Observe what you're feeling.
