September may be the beginning point for some breakdown. I am assuming this is global because of the astrology but these things also impact personally. Take a look at what you need to go deep about and stay awake to an external world that is going to behave differently than you anticipated.

From this point on, the astrology is plunging us into the conjunction between Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn coming in January 2020. The cards this month reflect a shift in the energy.

Let’s start with the Ace of Disks in the Aleister Crowley Tarot. This card is a coin with the inscription To Meta Ohpion, which means “The Great Beast.” It is a warning that the elements of attachment, power, greed and sex have manifested something dark. This energy will attempt to pull us away from the areas of love and acceptance and into the ego driven by a mind that wants ownership and power. It is an indication that something lurks in the shadows of the self. That energy is now on the move. And there will be a cost and a consequence.

The way through is not denial but to stay awake and centered within the deep core values of life, humanity, family, country and community. The past choices will now require great strength, determination and focus to move through as gracefully as possible. My intention this month is to take this time to move with clarity, choice and acceptance.

The Luxury card indicates that emotions are confused and clouded. The time of abundance is at an end because there is no healthy reciprocating going on. Energy goes in but less and less is returned. Those in money and power are keeping the bulk of the luxurious things and giving not enough back. The selfish and unstable are in control, turning the feminine energies into the darker side of reality.

The 10 of Wands shows overwhelming oppression and difficulties. Resources are spread too thin and victimization and persecution have gotten out of control. As systems break down, fear and guilt become the fuel for a death process. What that will look like is deeply personal and based on what you have learned in this and other lifetimes.

With the 5 of Disks, money, loss of income, and changes in status dismantle existing systems on the material plane even further.  There is a feeling of indecisiveness, of not knowing what to do next.

You are not the master of others. This month is about the practice of self-mastery. It is about sharing what you have in this moment, freely and without judgment. Sometimes that sharing shows up as your wisdom. Sometimes it is about sharing resources. You begin to recognize that you cannot teach another what is “truth.” Truth is a transmission beyond the great books of religions and beyond words. It is an energy. What leads you to truth is a deep longing to be that hidden possibility found within each of us.

You’re beginning to see that some rules of morality are how the mind and ego confine the soul. You see that rigid definitions of good and bad, sinful and virtuous, acceptable and unacceptable, moral and immoral are judgments of the mind and not the highest expressions of the soul. When you judge, you keep yourself from experiencing the magic in this moment. You miss the beauty that surrounds you. Morality needs to be viewed as a cage of conditioning, not truth. Morality without awareness is garbage.

Morality does not authentically come from the rules and viewpoints of others. When you are aware, you will simply be unable to do things that cause harm to others.

The Moose reminds us that those who truly know themselves have the capacity to be in silence. They also know when it is proper to speak and when it is more appropriate to listen, watch and wait.

Antelope says it is best to take action regardless of what the rest of the world is doing. Action will often alleviate stress and anxiety. Make a decision that you need to make and begin the action that moves you in that direction. This will help you align with what is really important to you.

Truth is calling your name and in doing so will strip you of illusions; you’ll find yourself standing naked and vulnerable. You are not the masks you create and maintain in the world. You are not a projection of who you believe you are. You are more than you can conceive. This month begins the breakdown of patterns of disguise, agenda, dysfunction and belief. Your shadow is revealed in the light as running a game of dysfunction. And your light now has an opportunity to rebalance.
