Mercury and Saturn cazimis | CHAN


In Chani’s words, February 26th, 2024: Mercury and Saturn cazimis.

On February twenty eighth, we’ve a uncommon alignment of the Solar, Saturn, and Mercury, who’re all gathered at 9° Pisces. When a planet makes an actual conjunction with (aka is in the identical place as) the Solar, conventional astrologers view it as a particular second in that planet’s travels. That is known as a cazimi (which suggests “within the coronary heart of”). It’s a time when that planet is believed to go from a dire state of affairs to at least one that can infuse it with the vitality it wants — much like being dehydrated after which getting an IV of fluids. It’s additionally thought that the planet itself is granted particular entry to the supply of all energy, mild, and life — very similar to getting a non-public assembly with an individual of nice affect, knowledge, and respect. To have two planets align with the Solar on the similar time is what is particularly uncommon, and presumably auspicious, about this week’s astrology.

Since Wednesday’s cazimis characteristic Saturn (the lord of time, construction, dedication, discernment, and delayed gratification) and Mercury (the messenger, scribe, translator, counter, and magician), a part of what this assembly could possibly be foretelling is readability, conviction, and spoken commitments.

That is an oath-making second.

And since they’re all convening in Pisces — an indication that’s identified for its vulnerability, creativeness, universalism, poetry, kindness, compassion, empathy, and talent to dissolve all boundaries — this astrological occasion will be considered a prayer: an articulation of our dedication to all that we discover holy on this planet, and past.

Pisces tends to the soul of a state of affairs, not the societal calls for positioned upon it. It desires boldly and softly of a world the place nobody is sacrificed, left, or lonely. Mercury is claimed to be in double-trouble on this signal, as it’s the house of each Mercury’s fall and exile. Right here, the planet of communication ponders names for worlds we’ve but to manifest that whisper to us by way of desires and insights, paying little thoughts to the fact at hand. Nonetheless, this may be useful medication to these of us swamped by fury on the present depravity of the world.

Saturn has been in Pisces since March of 2023 and might be right here till Could of 2025. The Madame of Boundaries turns into a deep-diving mer-creature in Pisces, giving form to our devotion (or embodying the form of devotion itself). Saturn’s time right here is an invite to decide to tending to the soul of our lives and our world. The 2 collectively, being purified, fortified, and infused with Sol’s sacred mild, is a meditation in a holy area. The holy area of dreaming what is feasible.

To be sincere, I’ve felt bereft of spiritual Jewish areas since October seventh. I’ve been heartbroken on the lack of motion that has come from so many establishments that made their title from being Jewishly justice-focused. I’m engulfed in rage and disappointment most days on the droves of organized spiritual Jewish communities who’ve but to demand a right away and everlasting ceasefire. To not hear rabbi after rabbi, congregation after congregation lifting their voices in opposition to the atrocities of the state of Israel and its bloodbath of Palestinian individuals, tradition, land, and life leaves a ringing in my ears — a sort of psychological tinnitus that threatens my sanity each day.

To not actively interact with the problems of our connection to Israel’s state-sanctioned violence is, to me, blasphemy. To focus solely and solely on our personal ache is to cut back what’s holy to what’s handy. God is a lot extra advanced than our personal private struggling.

Once I look within the path of Liberal Jewish establishments that stay unmoved by the final 5 months, silent within the face of this defining second, I see a vortex, a sacrificial altar, a ready area for increasingly violence and loss of life. I see so little that’s truly Jewish. However a lot that’s Zionist.

I can not sink too deeply into my wrath with out being fortified by the rebellion of so many the world over who demand that this violence finish. Individuals and organizations which can be devoted to the reality of how we received right here and why. Of us who know there must be a right away answer to the present disaster and a long-term technique for a world-restart.

If I seek for what’s sort and good and ethical, I discover a variety of it. And that’s what I want to decide to with these cazimis. I pray that I can’t let this second diminish my perception in what is feasible. I can’t let it make me lose religion in us. I can’t let my rage devour me, and I can’t let it burn the bridge between us. I’ll stay fortified by the prayers and actions of my fellows. I’ll stay impressed by all of the ways in which the human spirit persists and needs to know magnificence, love, and freedom. I’ll stay open to the dream that thousands and thousands upon thousands and thousands of us have: the dream of a world the place nobody is lower than, nobody’s humanity is lowered, nobody’s God is withholding. I’ll radically decide to the reality that all of us need to be liberated from programs of supremacy. I promise to let my coronary heart be damaged many times and to nonetheless search the sweetness of a beloved’s embrace. I promise to hope for the braveness to behave when it’s my time. I promise to stay curious. I promise to make use of what I can, once I can, nevertheless I can to middle the acute significance of reality, as a result of that’s the solely approach I understand how to are likely to the soul of my life and this world.
