Volatile Energy Alert!

We've got volatile energy happening lately.  It's definitely reflected in current weather patterns.  Some regions are getting extreme rain and other regions are getting extreme heat.  It's a time of extremes. 

The notion of balance seems out of reach right now, on a global level, in smaller communities and in our own bodies.  If you are not experiencing this, I's happy for you and if you are experiencing this, let life get rearranged.  Don't fight what's unfolding on an energy level.  Let it happen.

Last week kicked off a larger pattern, a pattern that will take nearly three years to play out.  Uranus in Aries is moving in and out of a square with Pluto in Capricorn.  This is the epitome of planetary volatility and yet, there's no need to fear.

Uranus in Aries wants to have a revolution.  It wants to leave all the old stuff behind in favor of the new and untested.  Uranus in Aries is willing to take tremendous risks, often without considering the consequences beforehand.  Uranus in Aries is raw, sometimes rude and very assertive.  It's primal fire.

Pluto in Capricorn wants to preserve traditions.  It values and respects ancient patterns.  Pluto in Capricorn is more conservative, more calculating and slower to change. Pluto in Capricorn has endurance, patience and quiet strength to draw from and it finds Uranus in Aries to be quite crass and unreliable.  It's cold earth.

So we have these two titans, both wanting control, clashing with each other to be in the lead.  As this series of squares plays out over the next three years (there are 7 squares to be exact), we're going to see this struggle between the revolutionary and the traditionalist becoming more and more heated. 

So it's time to ask ourselves on an individual level, what's worth preserving?  What traditions and structures are worth holding on to?  And on the flip side, where do we need radical change?  A revolution and a fresh start?  Both Aries and Capricorn want the same thing.  They're both cardinal (leadership) signs.  They just have very different methods of creating change.  if we can drill down to the root of this, we can get both of them to work together to create this shared goal.

It's going to get interesting, people!

I know so many of us are longing for a break in the energy.  A chance to catch our breaths and rest.  Those breaks are available but they depend on us making time for it.  It's not going to come from the external.  We have to make rest and restoration a priority and really do it because if we wait for the intensity to abate, we'll be waiting a long time.

It's natural to feel fear on some level as these energies apply pressure to the world as we know it.  There's an uncertainty in the air that's difficult to get comfortable with.  Let's play in this space of uncertainty.  Let's do what we can to find a new level of comfort in NOT knowing. 

We'll have plenty of time to practice this over the next few years.  One thing I've noticed for myself is that the more I let go and get into the moment, the less stressed I feel about whatever, whenever and however.  It's a practice and one worthy of our full attention.  Let's do it together.
