Astrology at the junction of Fate and Free Will.

As we approach the final hit of the square between Jupiter & Pluto (exact Aug 4th), some of us have definitely developed a serious fixation on growth over the last 8+ months! But this is not the light-n-fluffy version we’ve been doing, though – this is some catalytic, subterranean shit and as such it is important to remember that not all growth takes place in the sunlight. Think: Root (chakra?) development. Some massive morphs have been taking place since this formation first perfected in late 2016, but much of it may have been occurring underground in the deepest reaches of our psyches – note this leveling-up process may have actually come about through a huge “purge” of one kind or another; something that in hindsight actually serves to lighten our energy, though admittedly it may have felt rather hellish in the moment.

Spiritually speaking, I hope this doesn’t sound too ominous because I certainly don’t intend it to; I’m merely reflecting upon the necessity of honoring Darkness in equal measure with Light. I’ve never understood people who don’t believe in “rooting down to rise up” – it’s foreign to me whenever I hear someone speak of Ascension or spiritual development as if it should be this blissful, easy, terminally positive thing that completely bypasses the ugly bits of digging down into our own internal sludge.  On the contrary; my personal view has always been that one can’t have honest enlightenment otherwise – you have to fortify the root system first, which entails digging a deep and spacious hole so the root ball can grow wide and strong. To do that, you’re going to have to get your hands dirty; it’s absolutely integral to the process – there is a reason why they say “No mud, no lotus.” The lotus does not spontaneously grow from pristine waters; it arises from swampy pools rich in organic matter where the process of decomposition enriches the root system and is then carried all the way to the topmost reaches of the plant where it blooms. The current astro is very similar – if we want to develop, flourish, and blossom, often something old and outworn must be allowed to die off.
