Letting things fall apart so they can regroup stronger : Neptune in Pisces trine the North Node in Scorpio

With Neptune in Pisces trine the North Node in Scorpio, we're given a cosmic gift - the magic of Neptune can easily help us on the our True Path now. And, as always there's a positive potential and a possible pitfall.

The Potential

To allow whatever is going/fading/phasing out/dissolving/saddening/disappointing/hurt/lost to disappear like the smoke from a snuffed candle, knowing in your Soul that life is prodding you on to your chosen destination.

That's one giant part Faith and a huge dollop of Trust, and some type of Inner Knowing.

 Can you allow yourself to believe that
 through everything that's unfolding, 
you're going to be okay?

The cosmic conditions call for us to Let Go because Death IS the destination - at least while the North Node travels through Scorpio. Parts of your life are MEANT to die off now. That was always part of the plan as we entered 2014 and this chapter of Life on Earth.  Everything and everyone on the planet, is in the throes of a major metamorphosis. Everyone feels it on some level. Some days it feels easier. Other days we feel under the weight of something unseen and dreary. This transit activates a Soul Suicide - a mission seeded within every human, to allow for a dying off, of various levels of our selves. Especially the Fear-Based parts of our psyche.

Look at your own life and determine now where Going With the Flow may be your best bet because any resistance shown now, could simply be delaying the movement from where you are, to where you need to be. If the Universe is guiding you through your own life, and knows just what it is that you want and need (there's that Trust/Faith/Belief clause), then you have to actively demonstrate that trust, to see it reflected back from the watery Neptune realms of imagination, into the stodgy, heavy, physical dimension of Saturn.

You are always evolving, when you resist, the Scorpionic energies of the North Node either rip things away from us or we find things become too problematic. Things continue to break down, to make way for that Better Option. The parallel Universe, always open to us, when we Choose Differently.

You're better off being in the receptive Neptune-in-Pisces space of allowance. Then, you'll notice that pieces (an anagram of Pisces) line up and fall into place. But that you have to accept the loss of whatever illusion you may still be clinging to, to arrive at a deeper place of actual (not imaged) soul-satisfaction.

Behind the wall of the room you're currently inside of (if you're indoors) is a vast sky, and lots of stars. The ceiling is not the whole story. Even if it's all you have to stare at sometimes.

The Potential

Going with the flow is great when you're in the best flow for yourself. Not the flow of the mainstream but your own flow. Are you letting yourself devolve, or evolve? How can you tell? Neptune is after all, also sextile (an opportunity) the Taurus South Node, so old temptations and paths of least resistance become lures that rob our Light and sap our Cosmic Chi.

Don't rigidly push, but don't flimsily just get swept away by your feelings, be they fantasies or the echoes of divine discontent buried deep within every human being.

If you're tuned-in you're more sensitive now yourself, softening or learning compassion for those in your life. Tears flow - relief or grief. But something inside of us knows that by letting things fall apart, they can regroup stronger.

Families, friendships, career plans, health objectives - all of it.

Can you handle not being in control as a path to getting your life on a better track? Sounds counter-productive. Type A personalities won't want to give up control in areas where they still experience fear, but there is little choice. When you combine Pisces and Scorpio, change is always powerful and it always moves you. I'm a Pisces Sun, with Scorpio Rising, so take it from me.

Addictions? Always a Neptune possibility. But even the alcoholic soon comes to realize that something needs to change, that something no longer works. So too, the drug addict. So too, the over-achiever just as much as the under-achiever.

The great thing about Neptune currently trine the North Node is that lying is no longer an option. Our souls are revealing themselves more each day, as we become more and more the energy signature that we choose to allow ourselves, to predominately vibrate to. We're like soft paper being etched with the lines of the prose we chose to write. It really is written all over our faces these days, or at least in our eyes to our Neptunian-soul. That is of course, unless the ego has hijacked you and the lights appear to be off, But the writing is still revealing itself through us.

Broadcast your own signal, and watch the Universe respond to it in kind.

Sometimes, it's all you have. 

Thank Neptune, it's all we need.

2014: The Gift of Grit

Capricorn Season - and each New Year - is a time of hardship. We all come out of last year with a sense of 'what we achieved' and 'where we failed' no matter how skewed these perceptions are through our humanly distorted lenses. Some year you look back and you say "ahhhh.." with satisfaction. Other years, it's ARGH!

Your discomfort is a Gift.

It's mine too. And how we choose to act during it, will shape all our Destinies, individually and collectively. For discomfort is the grit that creates pearls. It helps you focus utterly and completely (Pluto style) on your Desired Destination. 

Things that no longer work, can no longer continue unless they change at the deepest more conceptual level. Problems can't be avoided any longer. Pluto in Capricorn and Saturn in Scorpio are seeing to that. We see the work that must be done and we do what we can.

Your discomfort is a Gift.

It helps you shape the direction of your dream and thus your action. It shows you where you need to grit your teeth and continue scaling the endless flights of steps to the top. Capricorn demands a challenge and a karmic payment and so we'll all be issued one at some point, this New Year.

At the end of the day, you're the one directing your own Story. That often frightens us, because we don't know what we "should" be doing, or what we really need, as the Me, Us, I, Ourselves that we Are.

What you consider success is no doubt different to your next door neighbor. For some people, taking one step again after a stroke is success, as is the case with my mother-in-law. For others it's having the courage to travel across the world to meet with a love (my friend), for you it could be securing a job or completing a project, while for me in 2014 it's going to be the new directions my life can take (and the post-traumatic fall out to clear up) after the cleansing fire of last year.

A problem is simply a solution waiting to be found.

And Your discomfort is a Gift.

Continue the climb!
