The Performance of Our Lives by Sarah Varcas (Posted 21 Nov 2013)
Today we have the presence of a Kite in the heavens above us. Formed from a Grand Trine in Water, sensitivities and emotions may abound and we may find ourselves wondering quite what’s hit us! But formed of Chiron, Mercury and the Moon we can rest assured that there’s a healing message in there if we can find it. Grand Trines can be tough to deal with. They create a closed circuit of energy from which it is hard to extricate oneself, and in water this energy is emotional and highly sensitive. Everything hurts, everything penetrates, we may feel we have no barrier or boundary between ourselves and the outside world. That said, if the emotion is pleasant and peaceful, we may just find hours gone by in a private reverie of our own to which no one else will ever be invited! Either way, the experience of a Grand Trine is a private one and not conducive to connecting with others.
Which is where Pluto comes in, turning the Grand Trine into a Kite and offering a way off the treadmill of emotion if we choose to take it. In its opposition to the Moon in her own sign of Cancer, Pluto reminds us that freedom often lies where we least expect it: in that moment of no escape when we feel we can’t take anymore, or a time of despair when all hope seems lost. When the darkness is so complete we can finally see that chink of light we couldn’t spot before and thus the escape begins. At the present time we are undergoing huge amounts of purging on all levels. Black Moon Lilith – the part of us so deeply connected to the integral wisdom of the universe that we can do nothing but honour it whatever the cost – is currently crossing the Black Sun, the portal through which we meet either our demise through wilful human ignorance or our salvation through unmitigated renewal and regeneration. This meeting of two cosmic esoteric powers is best not overlooked or minimised, for it comes as a warning that the forces at play with us mean business and our chance to turn things around on a personal, collective and global scale is being energised and concentrated like never before.
Which brings us back to today’s Kite, for it stands as something of a way-marker, pointing to those aspects of our psyche and spirit which need attention and adjustment. The extent to which we resist its message will become the extent to which we continue to struggle as we shift into the most potent phase of the Uranus/Pluto square which activates the Black Sun next year. These final few weeks of 2013 are akin to being back stage before the biggest performance of our lives. The audience are gathering, the critics in their seats, the bigwigs are in attendance and we know it’s make or break. We feel a heady mixture of anxiety, excitement, fear, potential and possibility. We are so grateful for the opportunity and yet wonder if we’re up to the task. Today the heavens reveal to us something of that task and encourage us to take note of where we are feeling the pressure, because it’s there to which we will need to turn soon, to face the forces of the cosmos which know what’s needed and will take no more excuses to put off the inevitable.
2014 is a crunch time for us, a watershed choice-point during which we can access our own intrinsic divine power like never before. But accessing it comes with responsibility, because it’s not power to use for personal gain but for collective, planetary healing. Today the heavens show us what we need to heal within ourselves in order to embrace that responsibility wholeheartedly next year, when the curtains go up and we are in the performance of our lives, giving it all we’ve got for this beautiful planet of ours and the breath-taking cosmos in which we live.
Love to everyone.

Out on the Assault Course
by Sarah Varcas
As we approach the Uranus/Pluto square exact on Friday and the solar eclipse in Scorpio a couple of days later, intensity is building and many people are feeling under enormous pressure. Whatever our biggest ‘issue’ is, that’s the one being triggered at the moment. Of course it will vary from person to person, and one person’s struggle may seem like a whole load of noise about nothing to another, but many are feeling painted into a corner at the moment and this can make for some stressful times.
Looking at the charts for today I found myself wondering ‘what’s the best advice in the midst of this cosmic storm?’. The answer came back loud and clear: head down into the wind and keep on walking. Ugh, it wasn’t really what I wanted to hear. I’m looking for a solution the same as everyone else! But the heavens speak of the need for endurance now and a willingness to surrender completely any notion of immediate relief in favour of the greater value of moving through something rather than solving it from the outside looking in. We’re not in the cosmic classroom pondering problems in a text book to which formulae can be applied. No, we’re out on the assault course in the rain and howling wind, covered in the blood, sweat and tears of what it means to be human, amidst the challenges of life in this material realm where wounded egos hold sway. Life out here is far from all sweetness and light and the heavens refuse to collude with any notion it is. Right now we are facing the darkness and challenged to acknowledge it, step into it and accept it as our own creation. For once we do that – owning our own shadow, the karmic consequences of choices made and the ever-present influence of our egoistic mind-sets – we can recognise just how adept we have been at creating this present moment of challenge and strife and just how unconscious we have been in the process.
