“If I could be anything in this world that shines I would be a switchblade
pressed hotly against your thigh.“
this is the moment for which we have been waiting. this is the reason rappers make it rain and the athletes train, something like the olympics. so without further delay, after all this anticipation, let’s get it on! the mars card speaks with great urgency on animalistic impulse, namely that which arouses us to mobility in one instantaneous moment. this planet, revered (and sometimes feared) as a the god of war, is an archetype of singular, phallic focus and is extremely direct to the point of provocation. out of an innumerable amount of past pursuits, we all have that 1 Thing that got us trippin and slippin and freakin out (What Would Amerie Do?) because we want it so badly.
what has been driving us even crazier is the fact that this operation is covert. we have sworn ourselves to secrecy because some battles are better won behind the veil of visibility. scorpio knows that the element of surprise is an essential part of power, and there nothing more shocking than the revelation of previously withheld information. a sneak attack is a foolproof way to kill prey, so why would we broadcast our business? our actions have been bold and based in desire, but we’ve kept under wraps for so long that has grown entirely too hard to hide the evidence of our excitement.
it is not yet ours, but we can already feel it in the palms of our hands, gripping it as if it belongs to us. possession begins in the mind before it becomes real and we have been preparing ourselves for pleasure, making room in our space to take it all in. the 2nd house is indicative of what we own, both material and nonmaterial, in accordance with our system of values and interests of leisure. the luxury of lust is in the consciousness-shifting sensuality of its experience, and as long as we take our time to do it right, our perception of pleasure will last forever like the fruit of the most deeply rooted tree. if we can subdue our appetites for a little bit longer, until the opportunity is ripe for the taking, then the victory will be worth every moment we waited.
one minute the gears are grinding at an alarming speed, the next minute they have come to a screeching halt. one false move and the whole apparatus could implode. with all this starting and stopping and suddenness of movement, it is impossible to anticipate what exactly will happen next. i guess it’s best that we expect the unexpected. or maybe we should not to expect anything at all. realistically speaking, how can one accurately anticipate something that has never before been experienced? one can surely try, but it will be hard. there is an increasing uneasiness that many of us are feeling the world over due to a seemingly insurmountable inner friction, but instead of stressing, i suggest we channel this rigid anxiety productively to manifest success.
hitting snooze too many times because you drank too much at your best frenemy’s housewarming party the night before only to get pulled over for speeding on the expressway en route to work knowing damn well you were supposed to open today and you’ve already been late 2 times in the past week and you just hope the car doesn’t still smell like yesterday’s hotbox… that’s what this COULD feel like.
no pressure, but truth of the matter is that we are on the brink of an epic conflict, and “easy” is not a befitting adjective. this may sound intimidating, but before we retreat into defense mode thinking others are out to get us, we must recognize that this battle exists within us. our internal struggle may be triggered by outside influences, but these are just projections. taking responsibility for our actions in relationships and owning up to our external circumstances are necessary to reclaim our personal power, not to mention the difference between steering the ship and playing passenger to another captain. it is urgently imperative to remember that although we may be fighting against the world, the same war, the very source of our outward ambition, is being waged within. the moment we accept this as a cross to bear, regardless of its heaviness, is the moment that motivation to win will overcome us.
it gets hard to see when straddling the line between the conscious and unconscious. our eyes take a while to adjust when they have just been dreaming, so it may seem as though we’re out of focus. neptune is said to represent clairvoyance, but if we are not spiritually inclined then the physical vision may be slightly unclear. confusion is a symptom of impaired eyesight and this haziness can be frustrating for those of us who are trying to see what lies ahead. even though we’re not in bed, it still feels incredibly unreal.
indistinction leaves us with a lot of options. at any given interval, life as we know it could go either way, which means that we must be quick-witted enough to know when to switch it up. things are changing at the drop of a dime and versatility is the only way not to get left behind. gemini is the sign of duality, so we must learn to be flexible because anything could happen. the twins are in a constant state of excitement as there is always new stimulation to be experienced, but they can just as well scatter themselves thanks to their short attention spans. if there is an absolute answer, it will take every bit of concentration.
to exacerbate matters, commitment is not in the immediate equation. we are too equal-minded to grow attached to one interest, so our diverse associations spread us thin. the 11th house is indicative of our hopes and wishes for the future in all their varied plurality. being connected to the current of an electrical outlet is bound to bring us some of the most shocking revelations from the highest source of power, but it takes great effort to sustain the singularity of such lucid insights.
