Forecast Oct 18-24, 2021: Bracing For Impact

The week gets off to a euphoric start as Jupiter and Mercury go direct, the Moon enters adventurous Aries and Mars trines lucky Jupiter. But a Mars square to Pluto is building, and the Sun is about to leave the politeness of Libra for the raw honesty of Scorpio. Add Wednesday’s full Moon, at 27 Aries 26 to the mix, and things are about to get interesting. No one loves fire and ferocity quite as much as audacious Aries. The cardinal fire sign simply can’t sit still. Directed to a purpose, the Mars-ruled sign’s vigor and vitality are particularly useful when applied to physical tasks. Monday’s Mars connection to expansive Jupiter will further raise enthusiasm levels, leading into Wednesday morning’s full Moon. Aries rarely makes it the finish line. Its job is to fire the starting gun. Overdoing it in the first part of the week could lead to the sign’s infamous burnout. Grounding and perhaps soothing the overly spirited, the Moon will move into the fixed earth sign of Taurus on Wednesday afternoon.


One of astrology’s homes of nourishment, the other being Cancer, Taurus invites us to slow down, get centered and indulge in some serious self-care. It is where the tactile and tangible aspects of life take precedence. Unfortunately for the sign of simple pleasures, squares to the Moon from Saturn and Jupiter, as well as a jolt from Uranus, are in the offing, and that Mars Pluto square will be exact on Thursday. Provocative Mars will be coming at destructive Pluto from an uncompromising 90 degrees, forcing some issue or other to the fore. Mars is one of the personal planets, and Pluto is one of the transpersonal outer planets. Recently stationed direct, transfiguring Pluto is once again activating the late degrees of Capricorn, the sign of governments, industry and economies. Pluto first entered Capricorn in January 2008 at the start of the GFC, so events of global magnitude are mostly certainly in its wheelhouse. Mars’ involvement in this confrontation articulates the personal impact of such affairs. Venus is the personal planet of money, and it will not only turn retrograde in Capricorn on December 19th, but it will conjoin Pluto on December 25th. What Mars and Pluto unearth now is likely to be deeply tied to Venus’s exceptionally long Capricorn transit. Furthering themes of power, passion and systemic upheaval, the Sun will enter Pluto-ruled Scorpio late on Friday night.


Shamanic Scorpio is where corruption either hides out or undergoes purification. It represents an instinctive quest for the truth. Presently, the White House has proposed giving the U.S. government the power to monitor all financial transactions above $600 USD. That act alone threatens to expose unfathomable sums of unreported income. Meanwhile, the end of the road, to where countless Congressional members have kicked the proverbial can, looms. Detective Scorpio is about to crack open the books, and it’s unlikely to be pretty.

Forecast Oct 11-17, 2021: Emergence

The Moon’s entrance into accomplished Capricorn midday on Monday sets a productive tone for the incoming week. The presence of the Sun, Mercury, Mars in Libra however, could give that ambitious Moon more than a few obstacles to overcome on Tuesday, via a series of squares. Saturn-ruled Cap isn’t known for agility. But the nimble moves mastered when the gauntlet is thrown down on Tuesday will come in handy on Sunday, when the Libra Sun squares Pluto. To put it another way, issues willfully ignored early in the week will resurface with a vengeance on Sunday. A hefty trine to that Cap Moon from original Uranus on Tuesday will offer innovative solutions, and a sextile from psychic Neptune early Wednesday morning will allow answers to emerge. On Wednesday afternoon, Venus will trine Saturn and the Moon will move into ingenious Aquarius. This is when the week’s bumpy road is transformed into newly paved asphalt.


Rather than being sources of friction, the Sun, Mercury and Mars will pave the way to bright ideas and friendly alliances, as the planets in air signs cooperate and collaborate. During this stint, the Moon will conjoin Saturn and Jupiter, as a positive and promising Sun Jupiter trine becomes exact on Friday. Setting the stage for a relaxing weekend, the Moon will then slip into mellow Pisces on Friday night. From here, the Moon is likely to let the noise from social invitations and engagements go to voicemail. There’s no disdain for sociable Libra initiatives; it’s just that the Sun, Mercury and Mars will be forming those out of sync quincunxes to the Moon all weekend. While Libra and Pisces share an infinity for fine art, crowds will feel brassy to sensitive Pisces, making quieter, more intimate settings preferable. That said, an amicable Mercury Venus sextile on Saturday night will add a cordial vibe to all gatherings, regardless of size. With that Sun Pluto square looming on Sunday morning, keeping affairs low key is a good option.


Pisces is the sign of completion and contemplation. The Moon has made another journey through the zodiac, and its inward pull for reflection is particularly pronounced this cycle. Jupiter will station and turn direct overnight on Sunday, as will Mercury on Monday. During the past three weeks who hasn’t replaced at least one appliance or electronic device? Thank you Mercury. In fairness, Libra-based-Mercury has probably also presented some intriguing insights. Back on June 20th, Jupiter had made it to two degrees of Pisces, before moving backward into electric Aquarius, where it has resided since. The planet of faith and philosophy will re-enter spiritual Pisces on December 28th and move beyond the shadow zone of this retrograde on January 8, 2022. Whether plotting the application of Jupiter to the remainder of its Aquarius transit or imagining the possibilities for its Pisces sojourn, there’s a little more time for deliberation.

Forecast Sep 27 – Oct 10, 2021: Here Comes The Judge

While astrology’s mischief maker Mercury is retrograde, Pluto and Saturn are about to turn direct, the Moon will launch a new phase in a cardinal sign and Venus will change signs. Events get underway on October 6th, when a new Libra Moon coincides with powerful Pluto emerging from its six-month slumber. Since April 27th, its transfiguring force has been applied to the late degrees of Capricorn. Pluto explores shadowy worlds, and Cap is the sign of institutions, governments and big business. Emerging under the Sun sign of deliberation and justice, and notably on its new Moon, Pluto is probably packing quite the drop. This new Moon may bring significant news from the U.S. Department of Justice or from major global health organizations. After spending the past month in Pluto-ruled Scorpio, Venus will also surface from a dark night of the soul, on the 7th. For the next four weeks, she will transit philosophical and politically-oriented Sagittarius. The mutable fire sign is astrology’s hub of international travel, foreign affairs and morality. Finally, Saturn will station and turn direct on October 10th. The ringed planet enforces boundaries and laws, and since late May it has also been in review mode. Like Pluto, its stance will shift from fact-finding to implementation. On the sunny side, Saturn provides structure and imposes order. Its dark side however, has a distinctly authoritarian streak. This retrograde has taken it all the way back to seven degrees of humanitarian Aquarius. The fixed air sign is highly compatible with fellow air sign Libra, where the Sun, new Moon, Mars and Mercury are traveling, and with Sagittarius, where Venus is headed. Also, Saturn is currently sharing that Aquarian sector with generally benevolent Jupiter. Initiatives undertaken at the waxing phase of this lunar cycle have a strong probability of yielding positive outcomes, particularly in the long run. Further, retrograding Mercury in Libra and Jupiter in Aquarius will station and go direct on the 18th, two days before the Moon is full. In short, as the Sun, Mercury and Mars inhabit the sign of fairness and liberty, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto will conclude introspective and investigative phases.


Over the coming weeks, the usual inconveniences associated with Mercury’s retrogrades will invariably show up. Beneath the surface, however, crafty Mercury may turn out to be on a far more consequential mission. This is the planet named after the god, who, to get business done, consorts with thieves, rogues and all manner of outcasts. As he goes deeper undercover, the bevy of planets coming off of the sidelines are lighting up the high and like minded sectors of Libra, Sagittarius and Aquarius. Since at least late April, conflicting narratives have completed for dominance. On one side lay the imposters, liars and grifters, and on the other, the noble and forthright. The Sun is now shining from impartial, judicious Libra, and verdicts are about to be rendered.

Forecast Sep 20-26, 2021: Great Minds

Sleepwalking into someone else’s meditation is what being under Monday’s Pisces Moon may feel like, especially as it reaches its 28-degree-zenith late in the afternoon. But alert, eager Mercury isn’t retrograde yet. While the Messenger is still making forward progress. its uplifting trine to jovial Jupiter earlier in the afternoon is apt to help us get more than a few boxes checked. Likewise, the Moon will shake off the Pisces cobwebs and jump into action once it rolls into spirited Aries on Monday night. The cardinal fire sign is short on elaborate detail, and attention. But directed strategically, its bursts of enthusiasm can prove quite useful. Speedy Mercury initially finds an agreeable companion in the Aries Moon, and the two will knock a few more items off of to do lists on Tuesday. But some serious checks on impulsiveness are on the way from Pluto in reserved Capricorn. On Wednesday Pluto will square both, as the Sun slides into rational Libra.


More reality checks will arrive on Thursday when Venus is directly opposed by Uranus and the Moon moves into grounded Taurus. For Scorpio-based Venus, this confrontation could be connected with issues that arose on the 17th, when it squared Saturn. It might also be linked to bills that will be due on the 30th, when it will square Jupiter. Under these conditions, Venus may be feeling the economic weight of her luxuries more than the pleasure she ordinarily derives from possessing then. The Moon may shed more light on where spending might need to be curtailed, or where secrets have been kept, when it squares Saturn on Thursday, opposes Venus on Friday and squares Jupiter on Saturday. But Mars and Saturn, in air signs, will put the wind back into sails, when they meet for a healthy trine on Saturday afternoon. The Moon will join this meeting of the minds when it enters astrology’s third air sign, flexible Gemini, on Saturday night. If two heads are better than one, then a plethora of planets in air signs is positively brilliant. The mental maneuvers that Mars and Saturn come up with on Saturday will be furthered on Sunday when the Moon trines the Sun, Saturn and Mars. Next, the Moon will trine Jupiter and Mercury on Monday. While the bright ideas are shining, Gemini’s ruler Mercury will begin its retrograde in the wee hours of Monday morning. This one will last until October 18th. Rather than sucking the air out of big sky visions, this slowdown will offer opportunities to work through ideas thoughtfully and thoroughly. With the Sun and Mars remaining in Libra throughout Mercury’s retrograde in the cardinal air sign, there will certainly be time for weighing pros and cons.

Forecast Sep 13-19, 2021: Personal Power

Detriment is the term astrologers use when a planet is in the opposite sign of its domicile. For example, Venus is presently in Scorpio, opposite of her home sign of Taurus. This Tuesday, Mars will enter Libra, the sign opposite of its home, Aries. When a planet is in its detriment, its power is at its weakest. Further, astrology’s personal planets are the ones whose transits we experience most directly. So as personal planets Venus and Mars move through the signs of their detriment, we may undergo a crisis of confidence. Ever at the mercy of invasive governments, tech oligarchs and big banks. to name but a few, a sense of powerlessness may increase during this period. Adding delays and their consequent consternation, personal planet Mercury will be retrograde in Libra, from September 27th to October 18th. Compounding matters more, on September 22nd, the Sun will enter vacillating Libra. Signified by the scales of justice, Libra deliberates to a fault. Being fair and considerate of all sides is ordinarily a virtue. But into the malaise of agitating Mars stuck spinning its wheels and retrograding Mercury in a quagmire, the Sun’s presence will push indecision, frustration and paralysis to acute levels. The hotspot is October 7th through 9th. On the 7th the Sun and Mars will join forces, and on the 9th Mercury will conjoin the Sun and Mars. Perhaps breaking the logjam, Venus will exit her detriment and enter eternally optimistic Sagittarius on the 7th. Further relief will come from the stations of Pluto on the 6th and Saturn on the 10th. After months of being retrograde, these two will slowly begin to make forward progress. On the 18th Jupiter and Mercury will also station and turn direct. Mars, however, won’t be leaving Libra until October 30th. Between now and then, stores of perspective and ingenuity are on the way, courtesy of some trines from Jupiter and Saturn.


While Saturn is never as much fun as Jupiter, there is much to be learned from his discipline, dedication and longevity. From the fixed air sign of Aquarius, Saturn will trine Mars on September 25th and the Sun on the 29th. The taskmaster is also the keeper of time, and its longterm view can clarify immediate priorities. Expanding that Aquarian overview, Jupiter will begin its series of trines next Monday, with the first of three trines to Mercury. On October 15th it will trine the Sun, and, under an Aquarius Moon on the 18th. it will trine Mars. The final Mercury Jupiter trine will take place on October 31st, just as Mars exits Libra. In short, as Venus and Mars traverse the signs of their detriment, Saturnian endurance and Jupiter’s hopefulness will avail themselves through will (the Sun), clarity of mind (Mercury) and willpower (Mars) from visionary Aquarius. For this trek, keeping an eye on the prize will not only be possible; it will be paramount.

Forecast Sep 6-12, 2021: Handling The Truth

The good vibrations flowing from Monday’s new Moon will beam throughout most of the workweek. Intensity returns early on Friday morning when the Moon will roll into possessive Scorpio, followed by Venus later that day. Plans to get while the getting is good are favored when organized, detailed Virgo is at the helm, and Monday’s aspects are opening a brief yet auspicious window. Setting the stage for that new Moon, on Monday morning, Mars will trine Pluto and Venus will trine Jupiter. Mars and Pluto are not typically thought of as sources of joy and good fortune. However, in an earth sign trine, the application of their combined power can lead to tremendous success, especially when they meet at 24 degrees. Complementing Mercury-ruled Virgo’s crystal clarity, Venus and Jupiter are in air signs. Officially, it’s these two who are in charge of happiness and good luck. Their meeting will offer a mental boost capable of carrying the confidence to execute plans over the top. The excitement and effervescence they stir up will spill into the Moon’s run through Libra from Tuesday evening to late night Thursday. But before that, the new Virgo Moon, at 14 Virgo 38, will unpack a few more gifts. When the Sun and Moon trine Uranus on Monday afternoon. the surprises coming from astrology’s wild card are likely to be of the pleasant variety. Finally, on Tuesday, the Virgo Moon will trine Pluto and conjoin Mars. Once in Libra, the Moon will trine Saturn and conjoin Mercury on Wednesday and trine Jupiter and conjoin Venus on Thursday. But nothing, even a winning streak, lasts forever. A distinct change in the air is set for early Friday morning when the Moon will move into intense Scorpio.

Being astrology’s sign of passion, death, and other people’s money isn’t an easy gig. When fixed sign tension is added to the cauldron, Scorpio doubles down. If this were only the typical two-day lunar transit, taking a deep breath would probably suffice. But, on Frida afternoon Venus will enter the secretive, nether worlds of fixed, emotional Scorpio, for a four-week-stay. As the Moon squares Saturn and Jupiter and opposes Uranus on Friday and Saturday, so will Venus during the coming weeks. Pluto rules Scorpio, making its domain the ideal spot for stashing all of life’s shadowy stuff. If Venus represents what we love, then Scorpio reveals our emotional responses to being denied it. Herein lies the gold. Acknowledged and carefully managed, envy, impulses to exact revenge and other Scorpio obsessions can be examined and healed. Repressed, they wreak havoc. Aggressive Mars is due for its Scorpio visit from October 30th – December 13th. Venus’s journey through this valley of the shadow is lighting a kinder, gentler path first. Like Mercury’s retrogrades, Scorpio has a way of getting to the truth. Mercury’s next retrograde, while Venus is in Scorpio, suggests that some serious revelations are inbound. Can we handle the truth?

Forecast Nov 16-22, 2020: Further Clarification

Back on October 7th Mercury made the first of three oppositions to global game-changer Uranus. Back then Mercury had already crossed into the shadow zone of a retrograde that would take it into probing Scorpio. After that retrograde was underway, Mercury and Uranus formed their second opposition on October 19th. Mercury in Scorpio can either keep or reveal the darkest secrets. But a retrograde stance encouraged the planet of information to spill the tea. Uranus, for its part, brings the shock and awe. On Tuesday, a now direct Mercury will take on unorthodox Uranus for the final time in this series. If their first two encounters didn’t shake everything loose, this one promises to tell all. On Thursday Mercury exits the retrograde shadow, ending one chapter in this extraordinary period.


The next chapter opens with Venus poised to dive into Scorpio’s purifying waters. Before changing signs on Saturday, she’ll have to undergo two more squares, one from Jupiter early Monday morning and the other from Saturn on Thursday. As previously noted, this has not been a serene homecoming for the planet of decorum, refinement and grace. On the one hand, after Saturday she will leave the cardinal commotion. On the other, she will begin traveling through the underworlds of Scorpio, where she will have her own battle with wild, unpredictable Uranus. That takes place on November 27th. If all of this sounds a little daunting, take heart. Shortly after Venus enters Scorpio, the Sun abandons the intense sign and roams into jovial Sagittarius. Both of these transits last for about a month.


Sagittarius is astrology’s mutable fire sign. It is Jupiter-ruled, and its arrow glyph points toward horizons and loftier values and virtues. As the sign associated with Zeus, the King of Olympus, perspective is another of the sign’s gifts. Optimistic, friendly and warm, Sagittarius can see the sunny side of almost any situation. Its indomitable enthusiasm is well-suited to the current Mars transit of Aries, and on December 10th a Sun Mars trine will take place. Mercury will enter Sag in December 1st. The downside is that this sign is prone to getting carried away with irrational exuberance. To temper that, Venus and Mercury in Scorpio will likely offer some critical revelations. No matter how unsettling or unwelcome, if we are to create earth as it is in heaven, we can and must face their truths.

Forecast Nov 9-15, 2020: The New Epoch

When a single week includes Mercury diving into Scorpio, our final Jupiter Pluto conjunction for thirteen years, motivated Mars going direct and a potent new Scorpio Moon, the Universe is telling us that a new paradigm is awakening. This auspicious week could get off to a contentious start via a Venus Mars opposition on Monday. Both planets are in their home signs, where their values are fortified. We in turn may feel a stronger than usual need to stand our ground. But by the time that opposition is exact, the Moon will have moved from opinionated, fixed Leo into thoughtful, flexible Virgo, and an overnight trine between the Scorpio Sun and Pisces-based Neptune will be well underway. Scorpio cuts to the truth and Pisces beckons us to see things from a higher, holistic perspective. So being strategic and putting any squabbles that arise early in the week into the larger context can make a huge difference on how this pivotal week plays out. In the afterglow of that trine, on Tuesday a newly direct Mercury will re-enter Scorpio. This run will be unimpeded, and the intrinsic certainty that comes from the fixed water sign should give us the needed clarity and confidence to make longterm commitments.


The most convincing evidence that something big is unfolding arrives on Thursday, when Jupiter makes its third conjunction with Pluto at 22:52 degrees of Capricorn. Capricorn is of course the Saturn-ruled sign of structure, economics and institutions. If something about that 22:52 degree mark seems familiar, it’s because the infamous Saturn Pluto conjunction of January 12th was at 22:47 degrees of Capricorn. Love it or hate it, that conjunction was a game changer. We are now firmly in a post-COVID-emergence reality. Like 911, there is no going back to the world that was. Jupiter and Pluto previously paired up on April 4th and June 30th. When trying to analyze the impact of any of 2020’s major aspects, it’s impossible to completely isolate any of them. So much was happening at once. But we can look back to those dates to locate the issues that are still in need of resolution. This is our third and final shot, because next month Jupiter will move into Aquarius.


On Friday Mars will station direct in Aries. This is another signal that it’s time to get moving. The recent simultaneous retrogrades of Mercury and Mars may have conjured up some insights of their own. Even if those were forged by obstacles, the truths they’ve revealed are valid and valuable. Overnight on Saturday, we have a new Moon at a formidable 23:18 degrees of transformative Scorpio. That is within one degree of Thursday’s Jupiter Pluto conjunction. In this configuration, the late Scorpio Sun and Moon are favorably aligned to the big three in Capricorn, and these Scorpio alliances with Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto will form throughout the weekend. For our evolution, Scorpio obliterates what is no longer needed. The sign’s modern ruler is Pluto, the planet also associated with destructive transformation. At this point in late 2020, it’s clearly no longer about what was. Head on, we are faced what is and being given the inspiration to create what will be. This week we take one colossal step into the future we wish to build.

Forecast Nov 2-8, 2020: The Expedition

In a year that has seen any number of obstacles thrown at a lot of people, forward movement is a blessing. Typically lightening-fast Mercury has been stuck in slow motion since mid October. In 2020, the annoying delays associated with Mercury retrogrades have been compounded by the frustrations of a simultaneous Mars retrograde. On Tuesday, the fleet-footed ruler of technology, commerce and communication will station direct. On the 13th, Mars will also station direct, ending its retrograde which began all the way back on September 9th. Mercury and Mars are personal planets. As such, their impact is much more obvious to us than that of the outer planets Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. Outer planets are said to represent the transpersonal spheres, and their connections to other planets are weeks, if not months, in the making. But Mercury and Mars are another story.


Mars, for instance, takes two years to travel through the entire zodiac. If you’ve reared children, you are especially familiar with the concept of the terrible two’s. At age two, we have each completed our first experience of Mars in each of astrology’s twelve signs. About that time, Mars returns to the spot it was in at our birth, and we begin the next two-year journey through the signs. Mars is the impulse that takes action. It is also the planet ruling conflict and combat. If we put those struggles into the context of fighting the battles that are important to our development, such as beginning to individuate and form our own identity, then Mars is better understood. As adults, we can consciously and healthfully apply our Martian power. Since late June Mars has been in Aries. The cardinal fire sign is another burst of raw energy. it represents spontaneity, effervescence and exploration. Paired with Mars, we possess a nearly inexhaustible energy supply. Aries is also the first sign of the zodiac, thus it represents the blazing of new trails.


In this regard, since late June we’ve been receiving prompts to forge into unknown territory. On the other hand, the Mars and Mercury retrogrades may have shown up as inertia or setbacks. Now the firepower of Mars on its own turf is about to be reignited. As I wrote last week, to the ancients Mars co-ruled Aries and Scorpio. Mercury spent most of this retrograde in Scorpio, and it will return to the sign, for a full passage, on the 10th. The Sun, our will, is also presently in the emotionally honest, fixed water sign. That means that Mercury has been poking around in the deeper realms of the psyche. As the energies of Mercury and Mars come back online, we can examine what has been pushing our buttons, moreover what lies at the heart our reactions, and most importantly, what we intend to change. Scorpio is the sign of transformation. What do we want next? Mars in Aries spurs us to take those precious first steps. This homecoming will conclude on January 6th, making now a great time for the expedition.

Forecast Oct 19-25, 2020: Good Housekeeping

You know that things are going to get interesting during a week when Venus is flirting with Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn and the Sun is moving into Scorpio and heading into a meeting with retrograde Mercury. In the aftermath of Mars’ unfriendly square to jovial Jupiter, the week gets off to quite a bumpy start. As the reverberations from that dispute settle down, a Scorpio-ensconced Mercury will boldly sting unpredictable Uranus, on Monday night. This is the second of their three oppositions, and this time Mercury’s retrograde status promises to make events all the more exciting, and maybe memorable. On the same day and in stark contrast, we have one of the year’s most fortunate trines, between benefics Venus and Jupiter with both in earth signs. If the Mars’ strategy of kicking in Jupiter’s door didn’t work on Sunday, Venus is suggesting that knocking politely, and maybe offering some freshly baked cookies, is a far better way of getting Jupiter to open up and share its treasures.


The planet of pleasure, relationships and harmony has been in thoughtful, composed Virgo since October 2nd. From there, she’s been patiently restoring a sense of calm and quietly helping us tidy things up. Over the past three weeks you may have found yourself tying up the loose ends of projects that got started while Venus was in Cancer but which had languished while she was in Leo. Next week, she heads into her second home of Libra. Before that, her final week in an earth sign is going to be most productive. After Monday’s encounter with prosperous Jupiter, she will trine Pluto on Wednesday and Saturn on Saturday. The Pluto connection suggests getting to the heart of matters and the Saturn one, considering long-term agreements. You don’t have to sign on the dotted line right now, during the Mercury retrograde. But with the Venus Pluto trine happening the day before the Sun enters Scorpio, it’s time for honest discussions.


On Sunday the Sun and Mercury will meet in Scorpio. Scorpio and the Sun have an understanding. Though their tactics vary widely, they both govern power and healing. The Sun is after all the primary source of energy for our entire “solar” system, and for centuries it has been associated with knowledge, medicine and healing arts, deities and temples. Its approach is optimistic and overt. Scorpio, on the other hand, stealthily slips in and probes the psyche in its relentless quest for the truth. Once it’s over its intended target, it unleashes its transformative gifts by unlocking the most intimate and undeniable of secrets. With retrograde Mercury in tow, the Scorpio Sun has a very capable assistant for this week’s mission. The challenge for us is whether or not to face the truth that our stellar super-sleuths expertly uncover. One of Scorpio’s symbols is the phoenix. While the Sun transits the fixed water sign until November 21st, if we are ready to commit past mistakes, regrets and grievances to the pyre, we can rise from the ashes, purified and renewed.
