As I write this, the Energies of Now are heavily spiced with Airy, Mental electrical currents and a beautiful now-waning Grand Water (Mystic, Imaginal) Trine, with a tiny bit of Earth and Fire on the side.

Did You Experience This …

Last weekend, Venus in Water-element Cancer opposed Saturn, Retrograde in Earth-element Capricorn, stirring both grounded love, caring, empathy, and nourishing and examples of how the punitive Masculine (Saturn Rx in Cap) can ‘act out’ in ways that level, deflate, reject, mock, or otherwise marginalize empathy, caring, and joy. (More about those tactics in the Empaths & Sensitives Series.)

The choice?

Heartfulness over hatred, love and faith over disabling fear, in one way, shape, or form.

In the week since, and now, the “live wire” means a lot of activation in the Mind-o-Sphere — inner chatter, outer chatter, sudden ideas and insights — AHA! — brainstorming (literally, a mind experiencing thought-storm!). It can be a challenge to keep up with all of those ideas!

The Muse Pool is just that — that beautiful, flowing Grand Water Trine between Venus in Cancer, Jupiter still retrograde in Scorpio, and Neptune in Pisces, stirring up the powers of flow, release, surrender, inspiration, imaginal, the Liminal, the meditative and contemplative, Musing, dreaming, visioning — and how all of those can contribute to healing.

A good strategy — if we’re able to keep hold of any particular strategy during mind-storming and oceanic tidal pulls — is to practice presence, in-body awareness, and allow some bit of time to the creative or spiritual flow (meditation, prayer, coloring, mindful walking while noticing the beauty unfolding around you, dreaming, journaling, a few minutes of hammock time, etc.).

And Live Wires in the Muse Pool energy does call for some tending of the nervous system — things that calm, soothe, replenish, restore, rejuvenate (like getting a good night’s sleep, trading some of the sugar and caffeine for more soothing, less stimulating tonics, putting feet on the grass, and so on — find some suggestions for Energy Hygiene and Soothers with these links.)

This doesn’t even include additional energetic and astro-energetics of the Energies of Now (and coming weeks or months), like Uranus freshly in Taurus and readying to make its Promethean Presence Known in a whole different way. (Follow the link for a bit more on that.)

For now, though … transformative inquiry is always helpful.


Since everything is ultimately energy, simply a quality of energy, we can ask ourselves these questions:

  • What effect do I want to have?
  • What do I want my presence — including words, actions, expression — to increase (and decrease)?
  • Do I choose to support or add to heartfulness or hatred, faith or fear, compassion or cruelty?
  • Do I want to be and foster, refuge, sanctuary, safe haven, or add to the pool of toxic waste and contribute to that which creates maelstroms (mal-storms) that pollute everyone and everything, and thus take everyone and every thing down into their whirlpools?
  • How can I be more aware of my conditioned, internalized projections and assumptions — the ones that get in the way of real connection, conversation, and healing?
  • What fine qualities of humanity are deep in my core — my truest qualities, worth, and values — and how can I re-center and bring those more fully into expression?

I know that many Sophia’s Children blog-siblings and readers are leaning into ‘being the remedy’ for the ills, sharing in some way food for thought, raising awareness, stirring heart and the better angels of our being.

But we all need reminders, and sometimes we can’t see through the fog or maelstrom around us and need to see and hear those lit-candles and ‘fog horns’ reminding us of the way.

This is a fine time to adopt Beginner’s Mind and refresh, renew, and re-sacralize our intentions and the remedy we add to the shared pool, as well as right in our own back yards.
