We humans tend to like certainty. We like to think that we are in charge, and that things are guaranteed. We like retirement plans, 401k's. "good" jobs, degrees--things that make us feel like we've got control. We like to come to "conclusions" and create solid stories about our past; to define and name that which we are "going through right now". We want to feel that there is some sort of landing point at which we get everything under control. A place where we "figure it out" and get everything into balance, at which time everything stays the same.
What if we were to truly absorb the fact that nothing ever stays the same. That there is no "conclusion" to get to, and that stasis isn't meant to be achieved. Not while we're incarnate. Sure, that might create some anxiety, but wouldn't it also just let us off the hook a little? Like, wow, I don't have to try so f*cking hard.
I mean, have you ever noticed that you can't Google a definitive answer on right and wrong? That it isn't written in the sky? (I'm an astrologer, so I've checked.) That maybe there is no "right" that applies to everyone, but only experience, living, and consciousness expansion? And. what was right for us yesterday might not be right for us today.
This Neptune/Saturn square that is applying is calling in the powers of Trickster. These are slippery times. We are just in the introductory phase now, as this square perfects for the first time this week. And the Full Moon on Wednesday activates it, upping the ante and culminating the energies. What if anxiety is actually excitement? What if what we habitually interpret as fear could be felt into and found to be anticipation?
Trickster energies break up old patterns, and bring updated culture into the world. And she has many jokes up her sleeve for us this coming year. The comedy is just getting started.
