I write from a neighborhood bar that has a great and relatively quiet happy hour. I’m drinking sazerac, mawing nuts, rereading the day’s pages, and listening to a man my age hit on a girl who at the very oldest is 25. I’d judge the shit out of him except when I walked in, he raised his eyebrows suggestively and I shook my head. Also the last person I snogged was half my age, which made them roughly 25 (ok, younger). If this paragraph didn’t land where you expected, welcome to my 2019. Though time is a construct.
Earlier today NYC was a storybook—-kids bobbing on parents’ shoulders, everyone bundled like toddlers in mittens and hats, and snow, glorious snow. But by midday it was back to bleak, urine-drenched, and sooty. Enter free-wheeling Sagittarius season and tonight’s full moon in Gemini. Both aspects remind us to be here now since linear time is basically the biggest myth of all and nothing else is real either save for the story you tell yourself. I don’t know about you but I’m feeling that inside and out. Even on television, at least Watchmen, the most momentous show anywhere right now (see what I did there?), the notion of linear time is being savagely imploded.
Fourth dimension is, like, so twenty-teens, y’all.
Taking place in the earliest hours of tomorrow–that’s 12/12 at exactly 12:12 am!–tonight’s “long cold night full moon” also exits us out of a cycle of karma since the number 12 is all about reincarnation. Ask yourself: What hard lessons have I begun learning this year that I can finally put to use? Venus, Saturn, and Pluto are conjuncting, which suggests the lessons may have taken place in our relationships and finances. Certainly that was the case for me, though ain’t that always the truth? Bottom line: we are moving past the limited thinking that we were taught kept us safe but really has been holding us back. Don’t be scared. Be glad–and dress warmly.
