Shiftings & Changes Again

blue-escalator aquarius-large-black

Here we are again, making the speedy annual Fall pilgrimage up the Energetic  Ascension Stair Steps. That’s not to say that we don’t do this throughout the rest of the year because we do, but the past couple of years now, the Fall 9, 10, 11 and 12 months have been incredibly intense and life changing. It really is a time of Harvesting and then adapting to these inner and outer changes.

Because I had been so busy during the Spring and Summer months working on my new book, (The Temple Of Master Hotei) and then the big rush during Sept. and Oct. to edit, re-edit and publish,  I wasn’t paying much attention to the building Fall Harvest energetic pressures. I was really more in a state of confusion and dismay over the book manifestation in late Oct. and was trying pretty hard to not acknowledge that big shifts and changes that were on the near horizon for me, again. But as always when we hunker down and try to stay where we had been when it is clearly time to move on, it is often a difficult and/or painful transition. It shouldn’t be but it often is.

And to make this years Fall Harvest more stressful and painful for me at least, was the fact that I didn’t really want to leave where I had been for the past 14 months. For the first time I had a little online Family and a place to hang out and share that was safe and sane. What a special rare gift it and they were too.

But by the time transiting Pluto made his great Costume Change from Sagittarius into 0° Capricorn on November 26, 2008, I simply couldn’t resist that powerful rush of new energies and was literally, energetically, shoved out of that familiar and much beloved club. Not by any one person or group of people there, but by Pluto, and one doesn’t screw with Mr. Pluto when He is knocking on your front door! You just ride the white-water on out and try to not freak out too much.

And now it seems to be that period, that phase, where many of us adapt to our new surroundings and wait for the Winter Solstice Sun to reach 0° Capricorn (and my birthday Sun at 1° Capricorn 2′). I suspect the Sun/Pluto conjunction on Dec. 22nd, only hours after the WS (Winter Solstice) (and hours before my birthday), will alter humanity and “reality” in brand new and highly dramatic ways!!!  I now see that this is one reason why I had to go through my recent Harvesting process and hang out by myself  for a while in No Mans Land. What a birthday present this year…PLUTO and me up close and personal for a good long while.  farting goat

Seriously, this should be fun at this point. Last night at 8:18 PM (I’ve seen numbers like this for years now; 2:12, 3:13, 5:15, 7:17, 8:18 etc.) we had another small but close earthquake here in SoCal. Hello Pluto in Capricorn, yeah let’s shake n’ bake the old falling reality so that a new and vastly higher, better world “reality” is available for those ready for one finally. This all-over-the-place post is really about the stages and phases of ongoing TRANSITIONS each of us goes through via the ascension/evolution/shifting process. What seems and feels so horrible one day, is easily seen a few days later as another very necessary change to be able to deal with more of what is coming soon. Things are rarely what they first appear, and we need to get ready for what’s coming with this years Winter Solstice and Pluto/Sun conjunction during it; some of us Mt. Goats more so than other folks.  😉

Because my natal Sun is 1° Capricorn, transiting Pluto is currently sitting on my head, and, He’s going to be there for a good long while too. Okeydokey, I figure it can’t be any worse than what all I’ve lived through over the past decade or so. If anything it’s the cherry on the top actually, and I need to relax and go with the flow. Heck, it should be easy at this point right?

At the moment I may not be the best person to be talking about this, or, I really am in the deep Plutonian Capricornian groove and have an extremely up-close, intimate viewpoint because Pluto is sitting on my face now! Hummm, I can’t tell yet as it’s all pretty weird and transitional at the moment. Good I sense, but very weird. Hey, what’s that strange, dank smell anyway and where’s it coming from?

I hear Pluto, Lord of the Underworld, banging and poking around in The Basement with a flashlight yelling back to me, “Look, see that moldy pile of ancient fear, trauma, anger and confusion over there in that corner? Get in there kid, ya gotta clean it ALL out now. It’s all gotta go gotta go gotta goooooo. This ancient filth can’t remain no matter what so get in there and get every little crumb, every tiny bit. It’ll be worth it kid, trust me.” Pluto smiles, nods and winks at me from the doorway of the basement while pointing the flashlight over to a far dark dank corner.

I’m thinking,“Do I have a choice at this point? Not really so just get on with it. But I’ve already cleaned out The Basement, my Basement, a few times! Damn, there’s always more. No rest for the weary. That silly TV commercial song is playing in the back of my head… ‘Life’s messy, clean it up!’

“Stop talking to yourself about how tired you are and how much you’ve already done and just get in all the corners real good. That rotting ancient mess has been down here for Ages n’ Ages and it’s really putting a crimp in humanities style so hurry it up kid!”  Pluto yells from the bottom of my solar plexus while tapping the back of my spine with his flashlight.

“Hey, most of this old stinky crap isn’t even mine so cut me some Lightworker slack here okay Darth Vader?” Pluto’s ignoring me, reading some decades-old tattered wet newspaper headline laying at his feet, something about mass murders in Chicago. Grunt sniff damn-it.

” Where the hell’s the broom? Hey, shine that light over here at least will ya?!”

I remember being very young and my parents taking me to Knott’s Berry Farm where I saw my first little goat. (This was a very long time ago, like 1955-56ish when they had some goats and seals and such there.) I was too young to realize that I was a Capricorn but I sure tuned into the little goat that special day. I remember it like it happened yesterday. I stood there watching every move he made, how his legs and hooves moved, the sounds he made, his mouth, his tiny straight teeth. I was instantly infatuated with him as any Capricorn sun kid would have been.

As I watched him playing, jumping and running around in his pen I noticed that he’d stopped to eat something laying in the dirt. I strained to see what he was eating and when I spotted it I was shocked and very scared. That happy, jumping, bouncing little goat was eating an old metal soup can and a cardboard box! I was mortified that he’d die from eating the horrible trash someone had put in his pen. Oh god no, he’s going to get sick and die aaaaahhh!

Then the magic happened as it usually does. I suddenly get a different perspective and it all instantly falls perfectly into place. I understand from a higher level and then all becomes right and wonderful with the world again.

There I stood watching my new little beloved goat friend eating the TRASH and I understood in those few seconds that, That’s what goats do. They eat trash and transmute it into life-sustaining food. I smiled with my new higher expanded knowledge as I watched the little goat eat the cardboard box and chew and chew on the old beat up metal soup can. All was good and perfect in the Universe again. Happy happy day, no dead goats!

So that’s what goats do. It’s also what Capricorn mountain/sea Goats are capable of doing, not only for themselves but for everyone else too in such times as this evolutionary Ascension Process. Now with Pluto in Capricorn—last of the Earth signs—things are really going to take off in those old lower world, high drama sorts of ways where many people aren’t sure if they should be seriously worried or celebrating finally. I like this, I like this a lot. Bring it transiting Pluto in Capricorn, bring it all right here, right now.
