Over the next few months the Moon's north node is going to be transiting Aries 22: The Gate to the Garden of All Fulfilled Desires. This gives me comfort, as I know that many people are wanting to step through their own "gates and doorways", but are somehow held back, largely through the disappointments we're seeing in the world around us.
Unfortunately, when it comes to disappointments, we have just had another layer shown to us through the recent new moon (February 10) which was on Aquarius 21: A Woman Disappointed and Disillusioned Facing a Seemingly Empty Life. This is being echoed in so many areas lately, particularly as we watch the rampaging march of the war machine out of the U.S. The recent extensive social security and education cuts in the U.S. should have people hopping mad - but it seems many feel they can do nothing. This time too shall pass, we know that, but how can we keep our vision straight and our hopes up with the kind of madness being perpetrated on our world? I guess we people who are so lucky as to have such good lives should celebrate the fact. It can be hard to do when all you see in the news is people suffering, starving, and all the rest. We know that the money spent on the vast war machine (which is only about a few people making vast profits) could eradicate the vast majority of suffering in the world, but the agendas of the corporations are more important...
Lately, the Moon's node has been on Aries 25: A Double Promise Reveals its Inner and Outer Meanings - this degree can hold many meanings, but the most obvious meaning is false promises and downright lies. We're seeing enormous lies being told here in Australia all the time with our government. The same is true in the United States, although the lies being told there are humongously bigger and more disasterous for both the good folk of the US and the people of the world.
I could go on and on.... many people reading this already know all of this to be true. It's like preaching to the choir here!
However, the Gate to the Garden of All Fulfilled Desires (Aries 22)is there for us to take hold of. The Moon's node will be hovering around this and the degree before it for some time over the next few months. The degree preceeding the Garden degree is Aries 21: A Boxer is Entering the Ring. We can't 'win' if we are throwing our weight around and throwing our punches from outside of the ring. We have to step up to the plate and go after the title (whatever that may be). Now could be a good time to realise that the time is coming to acknowledge what exactly it is that we want from our lives.
The next new moon (March 10) should bring us some solace, at least for those with food on their plates. It's Pisces 20: A Table Set For an Evening Meal - with this degree, sometimes all we need to realise is that we have everything we basically need, and probably more. If we have friends and loved ones we can break bread with together, we're ahead of the game in many respects.
