Manifestation only through understanding, thinking in the long-run, and patiently going through the ebbs and flows of life. Understanding the long-term consequences of our actions and correcting accordingly. This cycle carries a lot of oomph and power, but it is going to take time to build.
- 26 March 2021 6:57 UTC: Sun conjunct Venus in 220.127.116.11 (Aries)
26 March 2021 15:35 UTC: Mars conjunct the North Node in 18.104.22.168 (Gemini)
All planets move toward the north node
I recently noticed that ALL planets have been moving away from the south node toward the north node since the time when Jupiter and Saturn moved into gate 41. I'm not counting the earth, because the earth is always opposite the sun, so when the sun is moving toward the north node, the earth would always be moving to the south node. That being said, Venus was the last planet to cross the south node around New Year's Eve. At that time, the moon was still wandering toward the south node, but crossed it on the 10th of January. Since then, for the last 2 1/2 months, ALL planets have been on the nodal side of the wheel where they have resolved something with the south node and moved toward the north node. The moon, who takes only one month to walk around the wheel has been the exception and has finished almost 3 moon cycles since then.
All planets had crossed the south node, which in my understanding means that globally we worked through karma, and we worked with past issues. The last thing that we resolved was the question of values, standards and what is worth having in our life (Venus). We worked with things that made us feel secure and gave us a feeling of safety and comfort because we already knew them. We worked within the boundaries that were familiar to us.
But since January, ALL planets have been wandering toward the north node, which means that all energies have been pulling us to step into the wild unknown beyond our comfort zone. All archetypal energies and gods have pushed us toward that which is very uncomfortable and frightening at first, but also the most purposeful. This has been and will be a time of walking toward that which we are afraid of. It is a time of walking on brand-new territory. With Mars crossing the north node, the first thing that we dare to explore outside the usual comfort zone and confinements are questions of manifestation and mutation. How did we think that it works, how did we do it before, and how does it actually work? We are pushing beyond our comfort zone in order to manifest our destiny. We might be setting up first small camps on the unknown territory in order to explore further from there.
On to the transit itself:
Problematic: Feeling creatively blocked, limited, or even depressed by having to face a situation or work that is not exciting in the present moment. Taking action and shortcuts due to not being able to sit with inaction or to do what's necessary. Especially socially, this might lead to underestimating the detrimental and disruptive effect that others have on us, and it might easily lead to be engaged with people for a temporary feel-good, but being destabilized by them in the long-run.
Productive: Resisting the temptation to take shortcuts and looking for thorough understanding before we act (no fear of missing out). This understanding can be needed to succeed with whatever we want to bring into form - otherwise we simply might end up in the pool of those who are being taken advantage of due to their gullibility and lack of understanding. We don't want you to be in that pool. Know what you are investing in, and how, before you are gambling with your money, and don't gamble with your food allowance money that you can't afford to lose. No quick shots from the hip just because some guy on the Joe Rogan podcast is enthusiastic - first inform yourself on the details. I can't stress this enough: understand what you are doing. We can only sustainably make something work if we understand it.
Being able to sit still and do things that are boring and monotonous but necessary and that can bring rewards in the long-run. Doing the things that we need to do despite feeling empty, unstimulated, and uninspired. Taking the long but thorough path, rather than going for instant gratification that will be rewarding in the moment, but that will not be rewarding in the long-run. Recognizing the potential that lies within doing solid work and looking forward to it. The small steps and accomplishing them one after another can be huge motivators in such a situation, they can help us to build momentum and growing excitement with each step that we have accomplished.
As I mentioned in an earlier report, Pluto is now in gate 60, which is a forced global call to build frustration tolerance, perseverance, and patience (“a long breath”) by forcing a reality check upon us over the coming years.
