“Disorder is inherent in stability. Civilized man doesn’t understand stability. He’s confused it with rigidity. Our political and economic and social leaders drool about stability constantly. It’s their favorite word, next to ‘power.’
‘Gotta stabilize the political situation in Southeast Asia, gotta stabilize oil production and consumption, gotta stabilize student opposition to the government’ and so forth.
Stabilization to them means order, uniformity, control. And that’s a half-witted and potentially genocidal misconception. No matter how thoroughly they control a system, disorder invariably leaks into it. Then the managers panic, rush to plug the leak and endeavor to tighten the controls. Therefore, totalitarianism grows in viciousness and scope. And the blind pity is, rigidity isn’t the same as stability at all.
True stability results when presumed order and presumed disorder are balanced. A truly stable system expects the unexpected, is prepared to be disrupted, waits to be transformed.”

The Moon arrives in Taurus this morning at 6:36 AM PDT. Stability may arrive with a rather clumsy or uneasy sense of rigidity but, following the intensity of energy over the past few days, even if we strain at the bit, the slowdown seems like relief — at least at some level. Nonetheless, we continue to feel a need to expect the unexpected as the Moon approaches a conjunction with Uranus late this afternoon. There is a general sense of purpose — a mission — which keeps us moving forward with at least a bit of optimism. Individual self-control and balance is still needed in order to make the most of this atmosphere. We should not take today’s optimism for granted but rather, make the most of what we find here.
The moon squares Saturn in Aquarius, and we’re turning a corner. A moon-Saturn square will often bring a sense of emotional distance. But with the moon in earthy Taurus, where it is exalted, it’s easier to find grounding for the emotional energy of the moon, and Saturn in Aquarius is teaching us lessons of detachment.
At best, there’s an enterprising spirit in the air today, helping us find constructive, innovative, but practical solutions to situations. The moon conjoins Uranus in Taurus later today, bringing surprising opportunities and a sense of excitement.
We’re pushing boundaries, stepping outside our comfort zone, and feeling rebellious and indulgent. Be resourceful, creative, and experimental, but dig deep for your values. All that is material is transient. The more detached you can be from external circumstances, the more open you can be to making surprising and valuable discoveries.
