Stagnation

"A vulterous boredom pinned me in the tree" -Sylvia Plath
Something heavy looms in the air. It reminds me of the I Ching hexagram:

"Pi: Standstill or Stagnation."

This is a time where our instincts are to either retreat, or curse off life and everyone and everything in it. It is also akin to the "Hanged Man" Tarot card which is symbolically linked to the planet Neptune. When things are in the process of dissolution, especially our illusions--life can look bleak until we are willing to turn our old preconceptions on their head or look beyond the confines of our old attachments long enough to feel that something deep is going on in this darkness.

Perhaps the only immediate thing we can truly rely on in times of uncertainty is our integrity. The triple conjunction between Neptune, Chiron and Jupiter is about to oppose Mercury in Leo this week allowing us to really heal and dissolve decaying mental barriers. Fear and self-loathing are loaded guns projected inwardly or out.  On today's moon in Scorpio, the poetry of Sylvia Plath provide Pluto's healing balm:

"The clock shall not find me waitingnor these starsthat rivet in placeabyss after abyss"
