28 Jul astro.Noir: 2nd New Moon/Yemonja in Cancer Opposition Saturn/Ogun and Pluto/ Aganju in Capricorn TRANSLATION-“My Umi Said Shine your Light on the World”
This transit can be pictured in two sensory experience. The first is the post floating around Facebook showing the back of a protesting white woman sitting in the street “boody-butt-naked” on the ground exposing her yoni to federal law enforcement officers across the street. She did however have on a beanie and a mask. If you read the post, it expressed that they didn’t know what to do, so they dispersed and went away. The other would be a flashback to the movie The Crow when he squeezes the heroin out of the arm of a woman with a child, and says to her “Mother is the name for God on the lips and hearts of all children.”
This New Moon/Yemonya is floating in her own waters in the last degrees of Cancer which means you can feel the hot brush of the African Savannah beckoning her into Leo’s home within hours. While here though, she has the Sun/Olodumare at her back shimmering and exposing the need to tend to family and home. This is where Mama is most at home, but she has detractors that are threatening what she holds most dear, her children.
Across the sky you have Saturn/Ogun (Hard Lessons), Pluto/Aganju (Power Plays) Jupiter/ Obatala (Expansion) and Pallas-Athena/Ma’at (Justice) in the steely cold mountainous atmosphere of Capricorn. This is where the Federal government is overstepping its boundaries and authority. The divine feminine appearing as women and mothers are protesting the physical abuse by militarized police forces and the insistence of sending children back into school building as COVID 19 cases continue to skyrocket throughout the lands.
Neptune/Olokun (Inspiration) [sextile] Jupiter/Obatala (Benefits) and Pallas-Athena/ Ma’at (Justice) telling them on What’sApp to do the right thing by the people and extend those benefits. Meanwhile Mars/Shango in Aries [square] Mercury/Elegba in Cancer. It has Shango feeling himself wanting to do his own thing masks be damn, while Mercury is being that little brother in his ear whining “but mama said” on repeat.
These are the energies that will be around for the next six months so feather that nest, put up canned foods for the winter as you make sure to vote and fight the powers that be.
