Mercury-Black Moon Lilith Contacts, Censorship, and Reporting From the Fringes

Media and communication planet Mercury forms an exterior conjunction to the Sun in Aquarius today (6:52 p.m. PST) at 9 degrees. 

These bodies continue travelling in conjunction until Mercury enters Pisces on February 10. The Sun and Mercury are also forming conjunctions to Black Moon Lilith (BML), the point of deep, dark, denied feminine experience. 

This indicates that the Sun is shining its light on outsider (BML) information (Mercury) and on those who write, speak, and share that information. 

Reporting from the fringes!

Mercury-Black Moon Lilith contacts can indicate perspectives that are inflammatory or disturbing to a more mainstream or establishment mindset (even pseudo-alternative varieties), and these outsider perspectives can sometimes create hostile backlash for the marginalized messengers. 

There's some bounce-back, some rejection, some ejection, some circling of the wagons associated with Black Moon Lilith, and when winged messenger Mercury is involved, this particularly relates to information, ideas, and communication. 

As a person with a prominent Mercury-Black Moon Lilith contact in the natal chart, I'm offering up an illustrative tale here from my 20-year experience as a writer and reporter who has always, through no intention of my own, had a very hard time getting my work included in the public discourse - both mainstream and alternative versions.

Before I became the ass-kicking anarchist astro-reporter whose words you are reading here today (heh), I briefly worked in mainstream media.  I have an undergraduate degree in journalism and communications from the University of Regina, Saskatchewan. But even way back in journalism school, the BML writing was on the wall. 

I came to understand quite quickly that the media outlets as they existed would not allow me to do the work I needed to do. I knew they wouldn't accept my perspective or the perspectives of people like me as fully legitimate, as deserving of a voice and a real place at the table.

Jupiter Square Neptune and the Importance of Seeing Through Neptunian Glamour

In honour of the current Venus-Jupiter in Sagittarius square to Neptune in Pisces (the Venus-Neptune square is exact today), what follows is a re-post of an old article on the importance of seeing through Neptunian glamour.

As we are now almost ten years on, I would extend this necessary puncturing of glamour to celebrity of all kinds, as well as to pseudo-alternative controlled opposition, particularly of the puffed-up, "Truth-Teller (TM)" ilk.

Jupiter in Sagittarius (truth, wisdom, teachers) is within range of a square to Neptune in Pisces (illusions, deception, glamour) into November of 2019, and this keeps the maya-penetrating themes at the forefront. 

Too many people these days have their own precious minds and thoughts enmeshed in charismatic wannabe gurus and figureheads, following rather than taking independent action.

I outlined the themes of the Jupiter-Neptune square in my November 5, 2018 patron article on Jupiter in Sagittarius, titled, "Jupiter Enters Home-Sweet-Home Sagittarius: Dismantling Illusions, Deceptions, and the Stranglehold of Controlled Opposition With the Truth, the Whole Truth, and Nothing But the Truth." 

I also posted an excerpt from that article on the public blog, called, "Jupiter Square Neptune and How to Spot Controlled Opposition."

Dystopian Flames

This five-photograph grouping, along with a supplementary 'zine, is available at the Willow's Web Astrology Etsy shop.

All photographs in this article are part of a photography exhibit I'm doing at a local library.

You can also see a YouTube video on this exhibit.

Planet of concrete challenges, Saturn, is within orb of a conjunction to Hell-ruler Pluto throughout 2019. As this conjunction tightens, becoming exact a single time on January 12, 2020, we are confronted in our concrete lives and realities with all that has been suppressed, manipulated, lied about, and buried (Pluto) within business, corporations, finance, government, and institutions (Capricorn). Things are coming to a head on multiple fronts throughout 2019 and 2020 under the slow-burn effects of this Saturn-Pluto conjunction, and the toxicity and violence inherent in many of the structures and hierarchical pyramid-schemes of power on Planet Earth cannot be denied. 

Saturn relates to what is real, what is concrete, what is tangible, and as it steps further into the murky, netherworld regions of Pluto, we are faced with real, concrete, and tangible confrontations with some of the hellish scenarios that have been manufactured for us on this planet. These confrontations will require some type of effort on our parts in order to liberate ourselves from their weight. 

Whatever Plutonic threads are being plucked in your life, I encourage you to follow them to their roots and address them, working toward concrete solutions both in your own personal life and within human society at large. The personal is transpersonal and vice versa.

Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn requires that we work, step-by-step, for our liberation from the many manufactured and manipulated Hell-scenarios currently running amok. It requires that we demand something better, something more honest, something wholly legitimate, and that we do so from right where we stand.

Our efforts toward liberation from the muck and the murk are not futile (far from it!), despite what we may have been conditioned to think...

A Re-post for the Upcoming Full Moon Total Lunar Eclipse in Leo at Perigee: The Anti-Hype Full Moon Report

Just in case you're catching a whiff of the "SuperBloodWolfMoon" media hype around the January 20, 2019 Full Moon total lunar eclipse at perigee at zero degrees Leo, please remember: the media has an amazingly short memory, and it loves to create hype where hype is not warranted. 

I would say Full Moons are the most over-hyped astrological events, in general. And Full Moon total lunar eclipses at perigee! Well, those can whip things up into a real frenzy.

Please recall: we experienced pretty much this exact astrological event (a Full Moon total lunar eclipse at perigee in Leo) in January 2018. The main difference is that this upcoming lunar eclipse is the first Full Moon of the year, and the one we experienced in January 2018 was the second Full Moon in the calendar month, making it a "Blue Moon."

So you can pretty much just rinse and repeat for the upcoming eclipse with the following article.

I'm not saying this event is not notable. I'm just saying it's not hype-worthy.

From January 28, 2018, "The Anti-Hype Full Moon Report" from Willow's Web Astrology:

"The Taurus Full Moon at perigee November 14, 2016: the closest the Moon has been to Earth since 1948 (people were also peeing themselves over that one...)

Saturn in Capricorn and the Applying Saturn-Pluto Conjunction in 2019

What follows is a patron article on the Saturn in Capricorn transit that was first released to Willow's Web Astrology patrons on July 7, 2017.

I'm publishing this article on the public blog today (with the Sun and Saturn in a New Year's Day conjunction at 11 degrees Capricorn ahead of a January 5 New Moon at 15 degrees Capricorn (5:28 p.m. PST) conjunct Pluto) because the themes are highly relevant as Saturn transits Capricorn in an applying conjunction to Pluto throughout 2019.

Many of the simmering themes of the Pluto in Capricorn transit that I've been writing about over the past 11 years (80 articles and counting!) will be coming to a head as the Saturn-Pluto conjunction tightens. In light of this, I offer my work here (slightly updated for this re-publishing) as a navigational tool for any challenges up ahead. Being prepared with strong astrological back-up is a key for success in 2019 and always, and you will find no stronger astrological back-up for these challenging times than at Willow's Web Astrology!

Thank-you to all Willow's Web Astrology patrons for supporting me to do this type of in-depth astrological work and writing. It would not be possible otherwise.

 - Saturn in Capricorn December 21, 2017 - December 17, 2020
- Chiron in Aries April 16, 2018 - April 14, 2027
- Uranus in Taurus May 15, 2018 - April 26, 2026
- Saturn conjunct Pluto at 22 degrees Capricorn January 12, 2020
- Jupiter conjunct Saturn at zero degrees Aquarius December 21, 2020

Saturn entered its own sign of Capricorn on December 21, 2017, and as it did, it formed a potent conjunction to the Sun at zero degrees Capricorn, marking solstice. This was followed by a stellium of bodies in Capricorn that stretched from late December 2017 through the end of January 2018. This stellium was at its peak at the time of the 26-degree Capricorn New Moon on January 16, 2018 when six bodies were transiting the sign - Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Saturn, and Pluto, along with Black Moon Lilith.
