I often rez with Melody Scott Zindell's take on current energies. She explains the Neptunian week we've had, and the odd sensation of being beyond the known -- into the boundless realm beyond limited perception.
She writes, "This spiritual vibration influences our dreams, visions, prophecies, imagination and art."
Melody continues, "Such energy can drive us a little crazy as it is beyond the control and understanding of our ego. If we release the need to both understand and control, we can be mystically enlightened beyond anything we can do on our own, as the saying goes 'By the Grace of God'"
Melody writes brilliantly about the Saturn-Venus-Mercury-Neptune grand water trine -- the silver lining in the midst of a lot of confusion....
"With Saturn in Scorpio and both Mercury and Venus now in Cancer, we have a graceful, celestial flow of energy that takes our emotions (Cancer) into the alchemical fires (Scorpio) to transcend into higher dimensions of understanding and spiritual connection (Pisces)."
And this I found profound, again from Melody: "The Sabian Symbol for this New Moon degree is: A large archaic volume reveals a traditional wisdom. Dane Rudhyar interprets this as the seed-knowledge, the structure of cyclic and cosmic manifestations of life on this planet. What stops us from tapping into this seed-knowledge is the fear that we come up against when we open up the water passageway of our emotional and ancestral coding. It starts with Cancer and the 4th house, but when we reach Scorpio / 8th house there is a need to face the shadow work and this triggers our deeper fears and confronts us with the insecure and unknown. The psychological and emotional maturity that comes with the work takes us then to a higher level of spiritual awareness, which includes the Pisces and 12th house concepts of inclusiveness and unconditional love."
This is strong medicine, and I've had some rather threatening dreams -- the nightmares are back. There's an interesting convergence happening for me -- also confusing -- between astral shenanigans (dream hacking) and the projections of my own shadow. This is where the shamanic sight of Saturn in Scorpio comes through. In a dark time, it can be the subtle rudder through these personal waterways.
