12:14pm MST NEW MOON in SCORPIO
the DAY AFTER SATURN SQUARE PLUTO.
We BEGIN A NEW EMPOWERMENT of our new world, transitioning, as we witness our old world DIE and COMPOST. Compost is a good word and so are the words "New Creativity" and "New Energy Birthing," for today's nest of life energy at this POWER NEW MOON!!!!!
This New Moon in Scorpio is a phoenix rising filled with new life from the depths of deep waters . . . . the movements of power flowing today are DEEP CURRENTS of TRANSFORMATIONAL DEATH AND REBIRTH POWER. We are waking up amidst the ashes of a dying empire. Wherever we are, its better to jump off of any untruths or compromises we made in the past, emerging into the new alignment with TRUTH, JUSTICE and the NEW AGE OF AQUARIUS!
All that is flexible, fluid and guided will thrive, all that is rigid, fearful or patriarchal will be composted in the days, months and years to come. It is a time to trust one's deepest purest soulful motivations and allow fears and rigidities to relax, soften and fall away. Leaps of faith following DEEP TRUTH are required for our survival through these times. It is more important to speak the truth than to be comfortable, especially for the next two months.
In these times, the cosmos will reward RIGHT USE OF POWER. If you know "where the river is flowing," you may be guiding it, or you may be building the new banks of the "river of the new era of Aquarian Humanity."
"There is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold on to the shore. They will feel they are torn apart and will suffer greatly.
Know the river has its destination. The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open, and our heads above water."
-- excerpt, attributed to an unnamed Hopi elder
Hopi Nation Oraibi, Arizona
"And I say, see who is in there with you and celebrate. At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally, Least of all ourselves. For the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt.
"The time for the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves! Banish the word struggle from you attitude and your vocabulary.
All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.
"We are the ones we've been waiting for."

Our new moon today, at 24 Scorpio is like the phoenix who "allows him or herself to DIE," then burns in the fire of transformation, rising out of the ashes like a spring of life, flying toward divinity (up) with passion. Today both the death and the spring of life, cross paths.
What does this mean? "We are the ones we've been waiting for!"
I believe it means each of us is KING of our own WILD THINGS and we must find a way to bring order to this Wild Chaos of Corruption and Greed, from the rulership of the heart-tempered and time-wisened power of each one's own true rulership, not expecting anyone, not Obama, not any other "outside King," to "take care of things for us." It is time to take the power of rulership into ourselves.
Each of us has an answer for something. Each of us plays an important role. It is time for each one to fully step into their power as WHO WE ARE uniquely and in power. Real power is saying the right thing at the right moment in the right way to move "the river" along. Real power ishearing the inner call and following it, ending up at the right place, at the right time, with the right people. Real power is healing, like miracles.
We each need to find the deep rivers of truth and allow divine power to move through each of us uniquely as each of us plays our important and unique roll. If you are working for someone else, and it does not feel right for you, you may need to quit or take a break, to align yourself with your TRUTH and listen to your "inner deep river, to see where it is flowing you." May your inner river, flowing in the river of your heart, lit up by the SUN of your power center, as you joyfully move the branches out of the way and celebrate while reparing the boat wherever needed from leaks.
Saturn and Pluto are evolutionary forces. These forces drive humanity, each of us to EVOLVE. We are all being asked to COMPLETE the things we KNOW need to be completed and to MOVE to where there is an open door or an exciting opportunity, even though letting go of the past is uncomfortable and attachment can feel like the scorpions claws. Through some mysterious process these feelings of anger, grief, intense attachment, and all dark feelings - when brought to the fire, to bathe in the light of truth, these things transform into the leadership and wisdom of EAGLE, Scorpio's ascended archetypal expression. The Eagle is our ability to invent the next infrastructure for the next channel of abundance, the next water pipe, the next flow of energy. the eagle has the larger perspective and can lead us with wisdom.
I choose to allow my attached inner Scorpion, afraid of loss of comfortable and familiar deep places, to let go with its scared tightened claws. I push off into the middle of my own river. I allow myself to fall into the deep currents of my inner intuitive flows. I may need to dance, to run, to be in the ocean or be in rivers, or nature to find my own inner river.
I commit to building the banks of the river. The banks of my river, i build with the courage of knowing the future is built one brick, one thought, one word at a time. I take responsibility for SATURN, my AUTHORITY, as it meets in strength, my POWER. I have given my power AWAY to AUTHORITY, which i have externalized. I have also felt LIMITED (Saturn) by external POWERS, which i have projected onto external forces. I surrender these projections as i reclaim MY AUTHORITY INSIDE and MY POWER INSIDE. From this new place of authority and power, full responsibility for EVERYTHING that i see outside of me.
This place of taking responsibility for all things, and creating, as if we are the KING, the MASTER, the CREATOR of our new world. What infrastructure do we now need to build?
May you inspire, grieve, spin, dance, ski, travel, write, sail, raft, think, care, awaken yourself to your own inner power and authority, meaning completely RIGHT LIVELIHOOD, RIGHT RELATIONSHIP with human other as well as EARTH -right-relationship. If we are not in "right relationship at this time, we know this and we need to take real steps beginning TODAY, to move toward this right relationship that we "know" inside. The river inside of us will take us to "right relationship." We must follow our river! Yes!!! Follow the river!!!!!!
