What Are We Birthing?

Dear Friend and Reader:

If you feel like you’re not entirely sure what just happened, hang in there. Today (Sunday) featured some pivotal astrology. But as the energy from these events settles or changes direction, you might find that your perspective shifts, or that insights come through in a new form.

We’re in an unusual moment; and I say “moment” referring to the last year and a half or longer, as well as to today itself. Speaking in the short term, the Gemini Full Moon just peaked and Mercury just stationed retrograde.


“A mother gives birth to her son. This photograph captured a momentous introduction of a mother and baby’s first exchange. The baby is suspended in time, half way inside his mother and the world; being guided out by his mother’s own hands.” Photo and caption by Tara Garner, friend and doula of the mother / National Geographic Photo Contest.

Immediately this week, Mercury will retrace its slow path backwards through late Sagittarius, making the second of its three conjunctions with Saturn, centaur Pholus and the Galactic Core.

So on one level, you’re being offered an immediate review and new level of introspection regarding anything that felt like a ‘cosmic message’ coming through. It might have had to do with taking a new level of authority over your life; you may simply be feeling that you’re part of something much, much larger than you, and wondering how to embody your role in the grand scheme.

Speaking in the longer term, we’re experiencing the latest waves in the fallout precipitated by Donald Trump’s rise to the highest office in the U.S.: things such as burgeoning neo-Nazism; the FBI’s investigation of Trump’s associates for collusion with Russian agendas; the very real threat to Net Neutrality (that is, having an open-access internet — which is arguably the linchpin of our current environment); the popping and apparent draining of the social boil that is sexual harassment and assault of women by men abusing their power.

If Your Birthday is Dec. 4
(The Day of Fortitude) | Sagittarius Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
You may feel like old matters you thought were long ago resolved are resurfacing in their original form. Actually, they’re coming up for a review, and if you commit to sincerely looking back at the past few years, checking your work and correcting errors, you’ll find yourself moving forward at full speed by the end of the year. Take your time and be thoughtful.

Written in the Planets
Mercury retrograde (and Mercury storm in particular) pretty much compels a slowing down and introspection. This can be useful at any time, but is likely to be especially so today, as Venus forms a square to Nessus. If you react viscerally to a certain event, look for a similar issue in your past. That does not mean what you experience isn’t reasonable. Yet, if you feel severely provoked, it’s worth making sure that your ultimate response is proportionate and conscious, and comes from a place of compassion.
