What is the best way to improve life on Earth right now?
ANSWER: Leo reversed
Leo reversed sheds light on identification crises, where long-held senses of selves are no longer realistic or relevant.
The antiquated character struggle is rife and extends through pretty much everything in and produced from nature.
Cultural traits that seemed perennial and impervious to alteration are changing in major ways that can no longer be denied.
Leo is ruled by the Sun, so another significant and obvious factor here is climate change - it is getting hotter and Earth needs to adapt to this new reality. Generational ways of life passed on through parents and grandparents (not just in human society - in Nature) are no longer applicable to reality in a crazy f**king climate. How the most basic things are performed, like cleaning households, the use of energy, the disposing of trash, and eating, require rectification and the introduction of new habits. This is a top down, bottom up full on transformation and these are not easy tasks to pull off.
Rampant disease in the world was exposed last month and no one could escape it. Now, the true nature of everything is glaringly apparent and a lot of it is rancid and f**ked up.
Another context for Leo reversed is that astrologically, the Sun never reverses, it always moves forward, so the reversal position in this forecast hearkens to the impending dawn of a new era -- we are cautioned to be prepared for the imminent unprecedented epoch arising.
Perspectives that were previously veiled or enshrouded by darkness come to light.
This isn’t all necessarily bad, with wondrous and amazing progressive feats coming into form, but just like any frontier, immense hardship is involved.
Check out these dates for some SIGNIFICANT events to take place:
The period from September 23 through November 21, 2018 is rife with events that make it more than clear complete alterations in order are due. What happens shifts everything and at times it may feel as if nothing will be the same. Don’t downplay the significance of the transposition.
KEY SEPTEMBER THEMES FOR EACH SUN / RISING / MOON SIGN:
Aries - King of Cups reversed: Aries, emotional needs are number one on the priority list and personal relationships present themselves as the key to mastering the realm of feelings. Putting it all out there is what King of Cups reversed wants to avoid, but inauthentic expression of self is killer. By faking it in whatever manner, pain or reckless behavior such as downing a bottle to numb the agony of the world occurs. Keep it real emotionally throughout the month and tap into the powerful force of sentiment. You’ve really got to feel your way through this thing and be a ‘Feeling Being’ for a while. Once this process is over, the connection to emotional sensors and response systems will be next level with precision and accuracy that is out of this world or even psychic, so there are major rewards to this explorative emotional era.
Taurus - Eight of Swords reversed: Bull, whatever agony consistently plagues the mind needs to be let go of. Eight of Swords is traditionally a stressed out card replete with severe mental anxiety. If your psyche gets impaled by psychological distress or anxiousness, especially in the face of change, you’ve got the full force of the universe in September to address these issues for good. In the world that is emerging, you no longer need to stress over such matters. Perhaps a solution is the knowledge that not everything can be known, so why freak out over details that are not in your control?
Gemini - Six of Wands reversed: Twins, launching desperate conquests for success does not befit you. Six of Wands reversed turning up for September presents an unusual situation where struggling to get to the top, overcoming obstacles and conflicts to grace achievement isn’t even necessary. This month it becomes apparent in which areas of life creativity has morphed into desperation around pursuits. A fundamental transformation is taking place at the core of your spiritual and creative center, altering your total concept of success, and how to achieve it. Be receptive to forces of the universe and you will win, end of story. Do what you are meant to do on the planet and you are successful - what about that reality engenders conflict? Tune in.
Cancer - Knight of Swords reversed: Crab, any type of pressured pursuits that lead to mental breakdowns or obsessions are now irrelevant and inapplicable. Knight of Swords reversed turns up to confirm an about-face is taking place on long-held thought patterns that have been in operation for such a lengthy amount of time, they became veiled in deep layers of consciousness. These thoughts and beliefs drove everything and may not have been readily apparent for quite some time because they were so ingrained and submerged. The beliefs operated on autopilot, but in September, autopilot is off and all of these thinking processes emerge to light. This is a serious shadow side and there may be loads of clarity inducing what the f**k moments taking place as years of life moments and decisions are analyzed with the context of these thought patterns applied to the big picture. If you’re writing something, you may also need to go back to the drawing board to break through writer’s block or are returning to compose abandoned ideas, expressing a side of yourself that went dormant for a while. Whatever the case, your psyche is experiencing a massive liberation.
Leo - Death reversed: Lion, this transition is still in limbo. November, 2018 brings Death reversed into fruition, but right now, in September, the focus is on deep spiritual reflection before a significant stage in life is completed. An unspoken yet all-engulfing and perhaps stress-inducing karmic pressure may be taking hold, stimulating a profound sense of wanting to take action, but let things die first. The energy is dichotomous, with a pressing drive for preparation coupled with this desire for stillness to obtain insights into the deeper meaning of it all. Albeit trying, ultimately this is for the best, with cause for celebration manifesting from December, 2018 to six months into 2019. There could be grief, but the mourning leads to a more full life down the line.
Virgo - The Magician reversed: Virgin, magic and full escape into the wisdom of providence beckons. The Magician reversed correlates in the tarot to planet Mercury, the heavenly body that rules Virgos, but it’s been trapped in the mental world for too long and hasn’t really tested out defying logic for a while. The focus has been on perfect order and replicating results sensibly, but not in September. Pragmatism has become archaic in many ways and it’s time for the occult to return to lead the way. What about just knowing something is going to happen without fleshing it out as the most reliable way to gauge what type of action to take? The brain doesn’t need to approve these missions any longer since the answer is known on a more deep level that the human mind isn’t capable of processing.
Libra - Six of Swords: Scales, moving on may suddenly become a confounding necessity. Six of Swords indicates this is a time for venturing into new territory to try and make it somewhere else, especially after dealing with some sort of battle. Leaving the tumult and carnage for better pastures truly is the reward of this passage. Warring minds and differences in opinion are the the only main antagonizers while the journey is being taken, with perhaps some regret taking hold about leaving the conflict behind. Feel free to look back at the battleground if you want to, but cut through the psychological weight to keep it moving toward the destination.
Scorpio - Two of Swords: Scorpion, weighted decisions with no easy answers are abundant and the only way to deal with it is using faith and intuition. Two of Swords indicates the new Moon in Libra coming up on October 8th is significant and will illuminate the situation even further. Sensitivity is high and there are loads of vulnerabilities that could be generating a more raw vibe than usual. Matters of fertility, family, core foundations and emotional responses are all getting set off and the mind is trying to catch up to whatever is happening. Emotions are activated first and the mind later. Go with your gut on where the justice is in this situation, what is most fair. The equitable approach that feels good and is motivated by a central truth is the correct one.
Sagittarius - Knight of Wands reversed: Centaur, replanning is fortunate in September. Knight of Wands reversed is forced to backtrack and rethink the original strategy. In recent months, there have just been too many issues with this, it’s been too hard. This is the classic work smarter not harder kind of situation. Feel free to collaborate with others on pinning down the message or rebranding, whatever aid you need through outside views that will help you reimagine how to reach the goal.
Capricorn - The Sun reversed: Goat, whatever path was assured isn’t going down like that for certain any longer. Since Saturn is transiting through your sign right now, the planet is stripping you down to the core. In September, the Sun reversed indicates many more layers are being unveiled that could make you want to revisit some choices, especially when related to significant relationships. A safe base is what is really desired, but some fierce defensiveness may pop and make everything confusing, complicating and obfuscating what was once a very clear matter. Read the main forecast closely because it relates to you directly.
Aquarius - Eight of Pentacles reversed: Water Bearer, a switch in occupation appears imminent. Eight of Pentacles reversed forces thoughts about whether a trade, asset or investment has been harvested properly or if it’s even ready to hatch. There is no easy answer to this and going it alone, relying on your own personal faculties so fully, is not necessarily comfortable either. Proven practicality is the best way to transform in response to the developing situation. What generates the most profit? You’ve been through it enough to know, you possess the wisdom and experience.
Pisces - Ten of Wands reversed: School of Fish, what are you fighting to complete? The Ten of Wands reversed suggests an uphill battle that has buried the knees in weariness for a very long time. Combat fatigue is not interminable, you’ve grown out of it. Put massive energy into terminating this for good.
TIPS, SUGGESTIONS & NOTES FOR THE MONTH:
Life is f**king awesome right now. Even though there is all this terrifying, messed up stuff happening, it is so exhilarating to create something so new, unprecedented in human history. Our world is literally collapsing or transmuting in core fundamental ways, will we survive this? We can get burnt out like the dinosaurs or kill it into the next dimension on some Star Trek sh*t.
Socially conscious ethics emerge, in economics, politics, everywhere. This isn’t business as usual - since the entire system is diseased, accountability is demanded from the players at the top with all the resources. This is why big brands are becoming more of the caretakers than the government, a demonstration of this fundamental shift in roles.
There is no refuge in what once was. Save yourself and the world at large by transforming.
Climate change has a huge hand in driving the transformation.
Extremism remains on the rise because people are banding together to try to hold onto an unviable past.
This is a descent into darkness. Some people may literally not know who they are anymore and be thrust into this plane of consciousness that is completely new with no reference to the past.
Darkness is not always negative. The shadows of the womb fosters divine birth.
An identity downfall is occurring. Public figures and institutions are being taken down. In September, you’ll notice just how much things have changed, it’s a huge, mass scale shift.
