Catch 22, Grand Cardinal Cross, Jan 12

Eight days until the Presidential Inauguration of the 45th President of the U.S. This Cancer Full Moon is a fierce Cardinal Grand Cross and it has millions of people cross, angry and fit to be tied about it. The Moon symbolizes the mood of the people. 

The SUN at 22+ degrees is conjunct to PLUTO in CAPRICORN. 

This is a death and rebirth time for all of us but especially for the United States whose natal PLUTO is at 27 degrees of CAPRICORN. The major revolution/ rebirth/death/end/ beginning of the U.S. is officially begun.  

It isn’t comfy being in the rebirth canal.  SUN PLUTO are squaring URANUS in Aries conjunct to ERIS, Goddess of DISCORD at 22 degrees and CERES the EARTH MOTHER and opposed by JUPITER in LIBRA at 22 degrees. 22 is a Master Number.  This is like being in the Tarot  trump of the MOON #18 the number of Life in Hebrew.

SUN PLUTO are squaring URANUS in Aries conjunct to ERIS, Goddess of DISCORD at 22 degrees and CERES the EARTH MOTHER and opposed by JUPITER in LIBRA at 22 degrees.                                                 22 is a Master Number. 

This is intense. The U.S. Sibley or Natal Chart has its Natal CHIRON, where it is the most wounded and vulnerable at 20 degrees of ARIES and natal MERCURY at 24 degrees of CANCER. There are major communications problems going on throughout the U.S. in all manner of ways. These planets are being impacted on this Full Moon.

This is a continuation of the Grand Cardinal crosses of 2012-2015 which are now exact at higher degrees. New territory to foment revolution and change is being initiated. It’s a tsunami. 

If you have natal planets at 17-27 degrees of CARDINAL SIGNS- Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn you will feel the full emotional effects of this Full Moon very intensely.  

If the pull of the cardinal crosses isn’t enough for you. MERCURY is at 29 degrees SAGITTARIUS on the World Point of zero degrees CAPRICORN and conjunct to the GALACTIC CENTER. Mercury is slow but Direct. Tune into the higher Galactic message for instructions. Mercury is squaring CHIRON at 21 degrees PISCES and we are feeling vulnerable, wounded, weak, but it is a good learning place. 

To keep the Catch 22 theme going, Saturn is at 22 degrees of Sagittarius, squaring MARS in PISCES which is conjunct to CHIRON and quincunx to the Moon. Justice, truth, martyrs, scapegoats, freedom of speech, illusions, blame, fake noise, “real news”,  foreigners, airplanes, religion, Hollywood, oil, drugs, travel are all issues which are being tied up in this double bind. 

The TOXIC MASCULINE, TESTOSTERONE VIAGRA driven, is drowning in its own shit. Its’ own lies, its own delusions, its own falsehoods, its own addictions to OIL, its own delirium and drugs, religious self-righteousness and nefarious bank deals.  But we’re not going to take it. Saturn in SAGITTARIUS urges the truth, higher justice, Karmic Law.  We know in our deepest feelings what needs to be nurtured.


Trine to CHIRON in PISCES and to the CANCER MOON.

Women we need to embrace Lilith while she is in her ruling sign of Scorpio. You know where it hurts, you know where corruption lives, you know about being martyrs, you know where you allow the Feminine to be only one flavor, the All Good Nurturing Unconditionally loving Mother Mary archetype. Well screw that. LILITH is way more powerful. With the Republicans trying to control women’s freedom of reproduction I say Call on LILITH and be the banshee, be BriDGIT, be KALI, be the DEATH BRINGER, the natural counter-balance to the Cancerian Moon mother archetype. Women cannot express only one aspect of their beings.  They have all 3, Maiden, mother and Crone.

I am Calling on all the CHRONES to be fearless in the face of this PATRIARCHAL backstepping insanity. 

Things are complicated. NEPTUNE in PISCES is conjunct VENUS and ATHENA Goddess of wisdom and war and the SOUTH NODE. Oil is over, he who ties themselves up with oil deals will sink. DEBT will rise, Neptune in PISCES, the banking games are over. That is a good thing, the propped up false banks in Europe, Greece, Italy etc will fall like dominoes. 

But who know what to believe these days?

Do what you need to make yourself feel emotionally secure. This is the new normal. There will be protests and clashes in the U.S. during the Inauguration and I feel Trump won’t last long anyway. The Democratic Party are all bought off by lobbyists. The idea of a Democratic party is nice, but really Trump is not a real Republican either. He is an independent who said he was a Republican so he could win. The whole world needs to be enveloped in a big cleansing flood. Things will have to get more dire before enough people wake up. The 99% that voted for Trump don’t have a clue either. I understand hating Hillary Clinton too. No one is any good. The only one who has a heart is Bernie Sanders and since when did anyone in politics really care? What century was that in? 

Stomachs and emotions and women’s menstrual periods will be at peak. Expect much rain or snow depending on where you live. Tsunami’s and hurricanes are likely. Psychic energy will also peak at this full moon. If you are trying to get pregnant it can work well for you. This is a Full Moon of nurturing ourselves and creating emotional security in the face of major opposition. 

Cleansing near water or in water is recommended. Drink plenty of water, stay hydrated and feel all the emotional events wash right through you.

Stick to simple things, What sustains you when times are tough? That is the question to ask. Ultimately it is our families, friends and those that we comfort and care for that make us whole.
