if we are not real about what we are allowing to shape us, we may never shape what we actually want.
this is another way of saying that self-awareness (being alert & attentive to the way you function inside out) is crucial to everything.
jobs, careers, organizing, teaching, family, friendships, partnerships, collaborations, projects, healing, learning, community. interpersonal AND collective transformation.
if you are not alert & attentive to your self- motivations, desires, needs, areas for growth, areas for affirmation- how can you expect to actually change anything *outside* of yourself? how accurate, effective, or sustainability will your contribution be?
it might look good aesthetically- doing & saying all the right things. that's the easy part. while 1:1 relationships continue to fall through, community is a word used rather than an experience of practices, & the disenchantment comes. getting real enough with yourself to do your part to keep that from happening unnecessarily is the hard work.
we saw this with the exposure of the private lives & secret harms of public figures with jupiter in scorpio. it happens to all of us in some form if we don't trust that honesty goes a long way.
paradox: to destroy individualism we must awaken individually & take relationship seriously.
this new moon is sextile pluto in capricorn. there is probability that we can transform structures- in our lives, in the world. but if there is a gap between our relationship to ourselves, how we treat other people privately, & the culture we want to contribute to...we will fall into it and get stuck.
this is the work of scorpio. it's not about perfection, it's having the nerve to be straight up about ourselves & how we need to change, how we need to heal, how we harm. being willing to transform- a fancy way of saying being okay with death & rebirth inside of us no matter how fucking painful it is. AND THEN we expand. *wink*sagittarius*wink*
this shit matters not because the individual is more important than everyone else but because the collective is more important than the individual. and the collective is not a theoretical compilation of people- it is you, and me, and them. don't forget this in sagittarius season or in the glory of jupiter in sag...
