Muddling Through The Wonk

Well wonk is maybe not a word but it’s my new word. I was chatting with a friend about how the universe is so wonky right now with the Grand Cross of April 2014 building. And it feels perfect for the energies right now so wonk is my new word. Though the dictionary defines wonk as ‘a studious or hardworking person.’ so let’s say I have redefined wonk. Or use wonkiness if these things matter to you.   Now I want you all to just look at that first paragraph. For me the energy of it it feels like the current planetary energies. Redefining, breaking free of the accepted rules. A time of huge transformations and, well, wonk - or wonkiness.   Things feel challenging. There are a lot of global happenings and undercurrents but I want to talk more about the wonk within. The thing about the current energies is that they are bringing huge internal tensions. Coming up we have a Lunar Eclipse on the 15th April, the Cardinal Grand Cross is at it’s most exact on the 22nd April (though it dominates the whole month in reality) and a Solar Eclipse on the 29th April.   These energies have been rumbling and brewing since 2012 as the Pluto/Uranus square that forms the crux of this Grand Cross has been going on since then and this will be the fifth of seven exact squares between the two heavy hitters.

We’ll have Sun, North Node of Fate, Saturn and Mercury all in this powerful water sign. And then, on Nov 3 we also have a Solar Eclipse at 11 degrees Scorpio. Added to this, Scorpios ruler Pluto is in a powerful square with Uranus in Aries. I’ll go more into what each of these means over time in my weekly video reports that I email out to my subscribers so if you want even more information about this and other upcoming energies sign up now over on the right!   As I said in my previous post we are being asked to have some really deep, deep reflection time right now. But reflect on what?   Enough of the astrology and more about the feeling because Scorpio IS a water sign and is ALL about feeling.   Scorpio energy is about deeply bonded relationships. It’s about power and powerlessness. It’s passion and resourcefulness. It’s intensity and magnetism. It’s manipulation and obsession. It’s jealousy and loyalty. Scorpio is deeply sensitive and intuitive. Scorpio is secretive and private.   Scorpio is the realm of the deep psyche, therapy,...
