The 6th April as Jupiter conjoins Pluto in Cardinal Earth
Amazing times, I think you would agree, as many people have entered into a time of retreat. And that is what this is – a time away from external busyness; a time to spend confronting yourself and all that is not working for you; a time to face the reality of your life as it is and to sOul search as to how you have ended up living the life you are; a time away from many people you lOve, engendering a deeper appreciation of their presence; a time, perhaps, spent with family, re-defining what education means, focusing on emotional connection and building deeper bonds between you; a time where you cannot avoid a lover turned stranger and the empty space between you; a time to draw clearer boundaries and to assert your need for space; a time to spend on activities marginalised, yet passions of a heart colonised by productising; a time to explore endings and your mortality, the only inevitability you will encounter, yet the fear of which drives into myriad distractions all designed to forget about its’ lingering shadow; and a time to go inwards, to truly know thyself and to re-connect with your heart, so that upon exiting this pause, you will remember what is truly important.
This unprecedented time offers you so much if you can orientate yourself towards seeing the silver lining and not to give in to the deeper darkness that secretly acts ‘for the common good’. This is not a time for fear or anxiety about the future. This is about connecting Here and Now. Why did you come to this planet and why you came to this life if not to be who you are, not someone’s vision of who you should be. It is time to reclaim your heart, your mind and your soul.
