New Moon Forecast: Transformation

 

The New Moon appears on Saturday, November 18, and we’ll feel its effect for the next 10-14 days. The New Moon creates a void, a useful time for releasing, resting, and revitalizing our plans. The focus of the New Moon chart is transformation, healing, and opening to higher forms of love. Many healing aspects are mixed amidst the challenges.

The Sun (outer self, life) and Moon (inner life, emotions) are poised together in Scorpio on the same degree—with Venus (love, material goods, feminine) and Jupiter (good fortune) also placed in Scorpio. Birth, death, sex, and transformation—along with intense, psychic energy—are represented by this sign.

Essentially, Scorpio symbolizes the dark void, which we travel through when creating change. (The feeling of the void is increased by the New Moon.) No one likes the void because we don’t know the outcome. But light always guides us to a higher, better place–if we persevere.

Venus (love, feminine) and Jupiter (expansion, good fortune) are conjunct (close) in this chart. When love and expansion come together, it’s helpful and tends to bring beauty, hope, and opportunity into our lives. Venus and Jupiter trine (harmonious) Neptune (illusion, mysticism), which can lead us into a greater “feeling” of love. (Neptune rules water or emotion, and this aspect is harmonious. The highest expression of emotion is universal love.)

Mercury sits in Sagittarius, a fire sign, encouraging optimism, rapid thought, and interest in spirituality. Mercury conjuncts Saturn (time, karma), aiding with devotion and self-discipline. Mercury trines Uranus (awakening), which expands our ability to transcend the lower mind and to receive information from the higher, universal mind. The planet also squares (tension) Neptune, and this can cause confusion when looking at life (personal and global). Mercury square Neptune makes it difficult to separate truth and illusion. (Think of fake news, etc.)

Mars remains in Libra, which is not a wonderful placement. Mars rules action, warriors, and male energy, but Libra likes to deliberate and slowly weigh the matters of life. Currently, Mars opposes (2 opposite energies) Uranus (awakening, sudden change), and it can cause a feeling of pressure.

Everyone experiences anger about the state of world and/or their personal life. It happens, and we’re in the process of clearing it. Mars opposite Uranus can churn up anger, but it’s important to express through higher channels such as boundaries, acknowledging other people’s feelings, and speaking from the heart. (We could realize much misunderstanding occurs in relationships because of soul contracts.)

Mars squares (tension) Pluto, and it’s the same lesson on another level. Pluto (transformation, subconscious) has a way of releasing illusions about life and teaching us about how the universe would like us to align with Divine Will. (We can release anger by sending it up to the light, move into action on a new project, or transform it by changing our selves.)

Saturn (time, karma) and Uranus (awakening, sudden change) remain trine, helping us to integrate the old world and the new one. It simply makes acceptance of the changes in the world a bit easier—along with giving innovative ideas that can blend with structures from the past.

Sun and Moon (life and inner self) trine (harmonious) Chiron, the wounded healer. This aspect can align us with inner healing in a gentle way. Mercury (communication) and Saturn (time, karma) square Chiron, so it may take thought and time to incorporate the information received during the New Moon period.

Notes:

  1. The opportunity for transformation and healing comes with this chart. It’s important to decide where we want healing and change. Make decisions, plans, and listen by listening to your inner self.
  2. Neptune (illusion, mysticism) can awaken the dreams of our soul, particularly through day dreaming and meditation, It can reawaken our inner longings. Venus (love) and Jupiter (expansion) trine Neptune, which can align us with personal and universal love.
  3. In this chart, Mercury (mind, communications) is most useful on an intuitive level. Sometimes, the best answers come through meditation.
  4. Aspects between Mars, Uranus, and Pluto ask for release of frustration and anger to a higher source, the Universe. True transformation comes from exploring our hidden thoughts, emotions, and beliefs–and shining light on them.
  5. Sun and Moon trine Chiron. We will likely receive glimpses and hints of self-healing, which always involve self-love.

Full Moon Forecast

 

Full moons bring intensity, passion, and fruition to dreams. Everything heightens before waning and moving into a new cycle. The full moon appears on October 5,  featuring Sun (life) and Mercury (thought, communication) in Libra, an air sign ruled by Venus.  Libra rules beauty, balance, relationships, judgement, and the mind. Think of butterflies, dragonflies, and soft clouds—or the stillness of the mind that comes with inner presence. Think of a gentle breeze moving through bright leaves and the clear, peaceful feeling of an autumn afternoon.

Libra also rules the type of higher love that comes from the enlightened mind and an open heart. When Sun (life) and Mercury (thought) are conjunct (close), it heightens our ability to still the mind and receive higher communications and impulses. It also increases our ability to perceive beauty, harmony, and balance. (It’s important to align our consciousness with these energies as we move through the week.)

Moon in Aries stirs the pot, dredging up passion, impulses, and the desire for a new quest. The moon opposes the energies of the Sun and Mercury, so the best use of these energies is feeling passionate about the spaciousness of the mind when it is connected to the Divine.

The biggest challenge in the chart lies with the T-square with Sun (life), Moon (emotions), Mercury (thought), and Pluto. It pertains to how we experience and react to our own darkness and the underworld. Pluto reveals the truth about life, and it’s often not pretty. But part of seeing the truth and light involves recognizing the aspects of life (and the planet) that don’t work.

Pluto direct can feel like the river Styx. Fortunately, there is light at the end of the long river. When we see the truth and act properly on it, we become powerful. This is Pluto’s lesson.

A T-square can cause tension and irritability. In this case, Sun (life), Moon (emotions), and Mercury (thought) square Pluto, creating tension between our desire to create harmony and the aspects of life that appear before us. (Obviously, it happened this week.) Moon square Pluto (subconscious, transformation) arouses rapid, actions and emotions, which can occur with little thought. (Venus and Mars in  trine Pluto, which may help us in finding practical methods of transmuting energies through love and light.)

The challenge involves our encounter with aspects of the personal subconscious and global consciousness. The challenge is to remain aligned with a clear mind while focusing on a positive world view. (Of course, we will feel discordant emotions, but we can try to rise above them.)  It’s important to focus on the beautiful feelings and vision bestowed by Sun and Mercury in Libra. We have to quiet the mind and return to a higher vision, which is a form of cosmic awakening.

Additional Influential Aspects

Venus (feminine, beauty, physical possessions) and Mars (male, action) are placed in Virgo, the sign of order, healing, and physical work. In conjunct (close) position, there is a pleasant coherence between the male/female aspects of the self. This includes work/rest and active/passive phases of life, which can create a lovely balance.

Work and Spirituality

Venus (feminine, beauty) and Mars (assertion, male) square Saturn in Sagittarius (karma, time, devotion and spirituality.) The square creates tension between our desire to work and our devotion to spiritual work. It’s helpful to take breaks for peaceful meditation between efforts with focused work. (It’s important not to compartmentalize, but to find balance while holding the open state of mind conferred by Sun in beautiful Libra.)

Balance and Change

Jupiter (good fortune, expansion) in Libra opposes Uranus in Aries (sudden change, awakening). Our desire for harmony and clarity (Jupiter) conflicts with Uranus’ energies. Uranus elicits strong reactions, moving energy quickly from high to low (like a roller coaster), brings change, and causes odd events.

With oppositions, we tend to feel both energies in separate intervals. We may want balance, contentment and harmony, which is followed by a desire for sudden change. These energies can feel disruptive, but it is possible to alter the placement of our consciousness into a peaceful place by an act of will. Jupiter also trines (harmonious) Saturn (karma, time), which is helpful in creating a positive blend of the old and new.

Dreams and Illusion

Venus (feminine, beauty) and Mars (male, action) oppose Neptune, the bringer of dreams, illusion, and mysticism. Venus and Mars in Virgo ask us to focus on the tasks at hand and fulfill practical matters. Neptune (mysticism, illusion) in Pisces encourages dreams and a mystical state of being. While traveling between these two planetary energies, it’s possible to lose sight of larger dreams and aspirations when focused on practicality and/or confuse reality and illusion. Sun, Moon, and Mercury are sextile Neptune, which brings a more positive energy to the mix; their position can help in finding clarity with this task.

Sabian Symbols, based on Lynda Hill’s Work

Sun sits on Libra 13, “Children Blowing Soap Bubbles”. The symbol illustrates the beauty of air, the possibility of floating through life by becoming present and aware in the moment. Libra is an air sign, and it rules thoughts. When the mind is clear, “air” supports us with a lovely motion, carrying our thoughts to the heavens to take on shape and form.

Moon is placed on Aries 13, “A Bomb Which Failed to Explode Is Now Safely Hidden from Discovery.” This symbol has appeared often in the past few months. (It’s interesting to note how a WWII bomb was discovered and defused in Germany during this period.) It could refer to Pluto’s current (direct) position and the need to handle personal issues, which are potentially explosive. The symbol can refer to global issues as well. For the moment, we have time to review, change the past, and create a safer future (without potential harm).

Mercury is on Libra 11, “A Professor Peering over His Glasses at His Students.” Again, it’s a repetitive symbol. The best teachers share information on an intuitive, intellectual, and emotional level. Glasses can refer to not seeing well or seeing details more sharply.

We learn from the nature and the response of the physical world. Clear perception is necessary to read the signs. The symbol also refers to the need for teachers to study and grow on an intellectual and metaphysical level while teaching others.

Venus and Mars on Virgo 20, “A Caravan of Cars Headed for the Promised Lands”. Mars and Venus refer to male and female energy, and they give harmony when placed on the same degree in the same sign. The symbol is apropos for this time of higher vibration and the awakened movement, particularly as we move through life in our cars.

The symbol hints at a new and better way of living and new methods of experiencing life. Likely, it is one of higher consciousness. They work best!

Jupiter sits on Libra 30, “Three Mounds of Knowledge on a Philosopher’s Head. This is the last degree of Jupiter and marks the end of learning lessons from Libra. The symbol refers to phrenology, the study of the bumps and shapes of the head. It also refers to the interpretation of signs. We know the look of inner beauty when reflected in the face and body. We know the feeling of the flow and how life changes when we step into it. When the wind blows from a different direction, it tells about the weather.

If we pay attention to small signs and physical indications of the spiritual presence in the physical, we can learn about our responses to the inner world. By recognizing and acting on inner impulses, we gain greater access to the spiritual world.

Message from the Wolves

 

In this brief message, the wolves speak of the new world. I can only say that I learned the art of intuitive communication from them by following similar tips and words. Their words were true, and they never led me astray.

Our name comes from the root word, Lux—or Light. We are spreading throughout the world. We had no desire to become extinct or flourish; it is simply the state of the universe. As speakers of light and bringers of dreams, we have much to say.

The new world is here already, woven between layers of the old world and the substance you refer to as reality. It is like 3 landscapes interlaced. It comes in swirls like morning fog or gentle rain, which disappears in a few minutes. By afternoon, you barely recall the fog or rain.

The realities mingle and overlap like threads in a tapestry. You travel between the ordinary and the new world where life follows the flow of your thoughts. It may occur for a few seconds, minutes, or hours, but there is a subtle difference in feeling—a depth of perception.

You walk between worlds as you travel through your day. In moments of awareness, you perceive the motion into the new world where intuition/thoughts/emotions grow stronger, and the world briefly grows more beautiful and subtle—responding to your wishes and energy.

You will know when you are there for life will look slightly different. Maybe, you will perceive the big changes in the world. Perhaps, you will simply perceive beauty and sensation on an intense level.

There is no real time in this dimension/space. Everything responds to thoughts and emotions when creatures and humans open to this space. Time alters and lengthens, the hours of the day change, and the sun and moon move on a new course.

This reality is not available to everyone—only those who listen and act on the heart. It is not enough to see light or study metaphysics or act intuitively; the key to the next world is something completely different. It is for those who are ready to leave behind the heaviness of this world and wander into possibility.

A great dream, an adventure, is awaiting for you. The dream is new; it is lovely. Everything changes including the geography of the earth, the motion of the continents, and the flow of your mind. Who will go there? Those who truly know light and the rhythm of their soul. It is not available otherwise. It is only through the rhythm of joy and loneliness that you can possibly hear your soul.

 

We share our thoughts because we want to help:

  • You will have more energy if you draw it from the earth and stars. Ask the earth to nourish your body. Sit with the grass and trees. Notice the shapes. (All of the shapes of nature sustain you.) See yourself as sustained and nourished by nature each day.
  • Imagine that much of history and science is not true. At a higher frequency, the laws change.
  • Learn to pull back your energy from the world. (When you think a strong thought, you immediately feel everyone else who shares the thought. This explains much of world emotion.) Release negative, needy people. They are not needed in your life.
  • Use your power as a creator. Notice the good. Rewrite the negative into a positive form.
  • Focus on your dream of life with all of your heart. Imagine life as lighter, happier, and more fun. (We dream often, and we are dreaming you into our world.)
  • Notice when life feels lighter, brighter, or different. During these times, you touch the new reality. It is very useful to send light, see life differently, or observe beauty.
  • Find the position of the sun and moon. Watch their motion. Observe the changes in light and darkness in the physical world.
  • You learn to transform, create, and manifest by desiring this state more than anything. It is the natural order of creating change through the lens of the soul and the voice of the heart. It is why you are here. It is as simple as knowing that you have the power and deciding to use it.
  • You were born as creators, to create anything that brings balance, harmony, and joy. Use your gifts.

Half-moon Forecast: Challenges and Insights

 

 

The half-moon appears on Friday, June 30, and it marks the turning point in the moon’s cycle. It’s the time between new beginnings and the fruition of dreams when heart-felt visualization can shape life into a new form.

The Sun sits in Cancer, a water sign ruling emotions, the Mother, the sea, and the moon. The sign of Cancer prefers soft emotions and home like the gentle motion of a calm sea, but Sun in Cancer forms an opposition to Pluto, the sign of the underworld, power, and transformation.

The placement elicits a combination of agitation and achievement (Pluto) and pleasant days spent in relaxation and peace. Oppositions cause an interplay between two, different states of being, and we’ll experience both states over the next two weeks. (Astrology tends to provide a balance, and the Sun also trines Neptune (mysticism, illusion). It’s a gift that brings beautiful dreams and spiritual insights to counter the Plutonian aspect.)

Moon in Libra brings a desire for balance and harmony. It trines (harmonious) Venus (love, material possessions), which heightens our impressions of beauty, love, and nature. The moon also conjuncts Jupiter (expansion, beneficial energy), indicating expansion and good fortune can come from pursuing interests in this area of life.

Mercury (communication) is placed in Cancer. When placed in water, our communications—including internet, telephone, and electronics—may respond in accordance with our emotional states. It’s important to see effective communication before pushing the send button or making an important phone call. (We may also feel more emotional than usual, particularly when responding to others.)

Venus sits in Taurus, an earth sign that prefers beauty and the natural world. Venus trines (harmonious) Pluto, intensifying our emotions, particularly in the area of love and relationships. It also bestows the marvelous quality of increased perception in the area of relationships—and insight into establishing their worth.

Mars (assertion, action) is placed in Cancer, which can cause difficulty with assertiveness and action. It amplifies strong emotion that can feel overwhelming and slows  movement toward goals and personal realization. (Positive visualization can help.)

Jupiter (good fortune) in Libra is squared (tension) by Sun, Mercury, and Mars (life, communication, and action) in Cancer. The aspects indicate the importance of moving through emotion with a clear, focused mind and consistent action to reach expansion of dreams and goals.

With the outer planets, Saturn (karma) is relatively quiet, and it forms a trine with Uranus, giving the ability to translate the past into a new form.  Sun, Mercury, and Mars trine Neptune (illusion, dreams), and this expands our imagination’s ability to dream of beautiful aspects of life.

Pluto (underworld, transformation) sits in opposition to Sun, Mercury, and Mars. It is squared (tension) by Jupiter (good fortune) and Uranus (spiritual change.) Pluto represents our personal issues, darkness in the outer world, and change through transformation.

This type of transformation is difficult. It involves exchanging the aspects of the personality for qualities of the soul—and spiritual change. But we gain incredible knowledge from the inner self, which is infinite and loving. It’s a difficult but beautiful part of the transition into the New Age.

Dreaming with Wolves

A close friend recently discovered a 1930 National Geographic with an article about a Finnish shaman, who used the same exercise shared with me by the wolves. The synchronicity encouraged me to share my article  (2003) and dreaming exercise with you.

Eight years ago, I was chosen by the wolf, and began my Odyssey into a world so beautiful and rich that I can only attempt to share it.Somewhere in my voyage, I became a wolf myself. I know what it is to dream with a wolf, to run with a wolf, to be a wolf. I know the incredible psychic power and tremendous strength of the wolf.
Tonight and for all of this week, Sheba the White Wolf has been with me. I hurry to write while I am in her presence, so that my words will be touched by her Truth. Tonight, we will run under the full moon, and I will run easily and lightly. Her strength will carry me effortlessly, and when we are done we will dream together in the great forest where wolves dream and meet to travel into different worlds (See Dreaming Exercise below.)

It was the wolves who taught me to hear not only themselves but all animals — to recall what I knew vaguely as a child and could not articulate: that all of Nature speaks a single language of the heart. It is we — the humans who regard ourselves as superior — who have forgotten this most meaningful language of all.

The great wolf, Juno, told me stories in this language that became the Wolf Myths. Her words ripped my life apart — and when it came back together again, I was forever changed. Wolves do that. It’s wolf magic, pure and simple. You must live with them to know.

The story is about my wolf Maeko and our short time together.

Maeko’s Story

Maeko’s name is a blend of Maicho, meaning “witch” or “wolf,” and Meiko, the Japanese word that means “beloved.” The choice of spelling is her own. Of the forty-odd pups that Juno bore, Maeko was her chosen one.

When I first learned of Maeko’s existence, I thought that it would be impossible for me to have a wolf. For the first time in almost twenty years, I was living not in the woods but in a tiny town, with city streets and next-door neighbors. I worked during the day, and my lease prohibited a dog.

Nevertheless, all of my friends who had wolves encouraged me to adopt Maeko. Kevin called from New Orleans to remind me that he and Anasasi lived happily in a small apartment. Others called to tell me that having a wolf was a matter of importance in my life.

My children begged.

I talked to my landlords, and they laughed about the lease. Of course I could have another pet if I wanted.
So, finally, Maeko came to me. She was a very handsome wolf, slim and elegant, intense; black and white with a long black tail, a curved nose with a beautiful mask, and deep, golden eyes.

Maeko was nervous in her new home. She escaped three times during the first week. The first two times, she played an elaborate game of chase with my children, but eventually came home.

The third time, she ran for miles. When I finally found her, she was drinking water in a deep ditch. I stopped the car and climbed down to where she was. And I could see right away that she didn’t know if she wanted to be with me or not.

I started to cry. I talked to her: “Maeko, I love you. I asked for you, and you came. It will break my heart if you leave.”

She stared at me for a moment with that deep, intense wolf-look. Then she ran into my arms and licked my face. She followed me to the car and jumped in.

That night it stormed violently, and I could hear her nervously running through the house. “Maeko,” I said to her, “come to me.” She ran into my room and jumped in bed with me. I put my arms around her, and I could feel her heartbeat slow down as I stroked her. She put her beautiful head on my chest, and I could feel our spirits begin to merge as we started the deep bonding process that can occur between a wolf and person.

From then on, Maeko slept in my room, and I dreamed with her in that incredible dream-forest where wolves go each night.

When we walked in the mornings, deer began to appear behind the house, and wildlife in the area flourished. The wildlife and landscape changed to fit Maeko’s inner vision. I loved walking with her before work, through the dew she’d created, watching the sun rise.
Maeko began to learn to hear my thoughts and to send me complex pictures. For example, I could ask her where my son was in the neighborhood, and I would receive a detailed picture of him and what he was doing. These pictures were always accurate.

We hiked with Maeko through Tallulah Gorge and took her to waterfalls and on picnics. She was gentle enough that small children could stroke her, and she won the heart of the entire neighborhood. We became so attuned that I could mentally ask her to sit or go into another room, and she would do it, with never a sound on my part.

Maeko was wise. She even guided me through a financial disagreement with my ex-husband. I was on the phone talking to my attorney about this when Maeko looked straight at me and said, “Give up the money.” I knew that the wolves had never misled me before; everything they’d ever told me had been true. So I did what Maeko said — signed away my child support and relinquished control. After that, I worried about having enough money, but Maeko told me not to, and it turned out that she was right. I had been working sporadically as an animal communicator, but now the readings poured in.

Then one day I began to notice that wherever I went, animals spoke to me. As I understood that my gift was to help the animals and humanity, I became more comfortable with myself as a psychic, and my confidence soared.

Christmas came, and Maeko was thrilled by the excitement. She wore a huge French silk bow and was very careful with it. She greeted visitors at the door. And she loved the Christmas tree. She would lie under it very, very carefully.

After Christmas it snowed, and we walked with her through the fresh snow. My mother, who dislikes animals, fell in love with her and took pictures of her throughout the day.
Maeko died nearly a month ago, thirteen months after she came to me. Her death was mysterious and quick, and was accompanied by the “light show” or violent thunderstorm that often follows the death of a wolf. I will never be the same.

We wrapped her in her favorite purple blanket, and my friend, Adam, took her far into the National Forest for me. My children and I cried for three days. Then on the third night we all dreamed of her running in the forest. She was close to us, and we could feel how happy and strong she was.

I am devastated without her, for I cannot be who I truly am without a wolf. But there will be other wolves, and already I feel the next one. He is calling.

I have only one regret. I waited three years to take Maeko because I was afraid of having my heart broken. So perhaps her greatest gift to me, besides her tremendous wolf love, was to teach me how foolish it is to wait for any kind of love.

Dreaming with the Wolves

Sheba the White Wolf is here, and she is helping me to describe the place I go when I dream with the wolves. She believes that you, too, can travel there if it is your desire.

You might burn a little white sage and call upon the energy of the Four Directions before you read this — or just call the Spirit of the Wolf, and ask to go there. Sheba says that is all you have to do. She says if you can’t dream it, just imagine it.

Dreaming Exercise

 

  • There is a forest where all wolves dream. It is a primeval forest that we all know in a part of our mind. You have been there before. Your soul knows this place. Go to this place in your mind, and in a little while, if you let yourself really see it, the wolves will come.
  • You have known the wolves in other lives. Once, they lived with you, and you ran free and wild with them under the moon. Your body knows this. Let your body remember this.
  • Look around. We are in a vast forest. The trees are huge. They have never been touched by man. These trees are from a different time and place. They are reminiscent of cedars or hemlocks, but they are neither. They are trees that live in this special place, the Place of the Wolves. You can come here only if you are invited. The wolves are calling you because I have asked.Feel this place. Look around and see that the earth is clean and the sky is blue. The sky will darken as the wolves come. It will turn into twilight, and we will travel through the half-world. The half-world is a space in time. You will come to know it.Feel the earth beneath your feet. The earth is warm and the debris on the forest floor is cool and clean. There is moss in the damp places and around the edge of the trees. Feel its softness. There also are rocks beneath the forest floor. Feel their strength.In a little while, you will run. Let your feet and legs feel the rocks, the hard and soft places of the forest floor. Your feet will guide you through the night.

 

  • The sky is darkening, turning a purple blue. As the first stars are rising, you hear the first wolf howl. A waxing, crescent moon is beginning to rise in the west (the moon will change after the first time, but see it as a quarter crescent the first time).The wolves are beginning to howl. You can hear and feel your wolves. This pack of wolves is your own, unlike anyone else’s. Feel them. Feel the pull of their power. Soon they will be with you. The fine hair on your neck and body will begin to stand up.

 

  • The first wolf comes to you. It is an Alpha wolf. If you do not know its name, then ask — or wait until you know within. If you do not get a name this time, you will another time.Your body will change in the presence of the wolf. Remember how running and jumping felt when you were fourteen or fifteen? How it felt like flying? Remember what it is like to be incredibly strong.

 

  • The forest that you are in sits on a long wide ledge. Walk out to the edge with the wolves. One or two wolves may join you, or the entire pack may come. Below, you can see a valley. Above are the mountains and the moon.Hear the wolves howl. Watch as they lift their noses toward the moon. Let the vibrations of their howls travel through your body.Now it is time for you to run.

 

  • Run with the wolves. And as you do, you may find a space that is like a crack. If you do, travel through it. If not, just run through the forest. The forests will change as you run. The rest is up to the wolves. You will go where they take you.

One day this dream may seem as real to you as anything you have ever known. When that happens, you will know the power and strength of the wolf.
NOTE: As you run with the wolves, the living objects of your vision may appear intensely red or blue, or glowing. This is normal. Wolves see in red and blue — red to hunt, and blue as their normal vision.

7 Thoughts to Experience More of the Soul

 

Higher thought engages the inner self. Self-observation moves us out of the inner dialog. Reflecting on the heart invokes a state of love. Seeing life differently can bring freedom, insight, and alter the direction of the energies around us.

  1. When experiencing thoughts or feelings of a lower nature, it’s helpful to ask if they come from your self. If not, ask if they come from others or mass consciousness at large. As your intuitive gifts grow, you pick up more from others. In either case, it’s helpful to focus on light and ask your inner self for the right visual of the situation. (Notice the day and time to see if it is repetitive.)
  2. Emotions are not always real. The highest emotions are aligned with love and the inner self. Lower emotions such as pain, anger, or depression may relate to events or cyclical patterns in life. (It’s helpful to pull into the heart space where emotions are smooth and peaceful.)
  3. Focus on your innate ability to alter events in your life. Imagine your life expanding with new events and feeling a new sense of happiness. How do you feel when you are connected? Repeat the question like a mantra. Notice how answers appear in this state
  4. Think about your connection with everyone else in the light. At any given moment, many other people are meditating, feeling their heart space, or thinking good thoughts. You can connect with them and increase the light.
  5. Increased light changes everything. It’s how you raise your vibration, see new realities, become more powerful, and alter the flow of energy in the world. If you focus on the presence of light, it appears through other people, messages, nature, and other people. It animates life. (A higher frequency causes particles to vibrate in a different way. Alignment with a higher frequency often breaks the laws of the physical world and causes physical matter to regroup in amazing ways. (People change their behavior. Opportunities come. Doors open. Life changes in an incredible way.)
  6. Your inner self leads you into answers. They may come as an alteration of how you see life, a softer response in place of anger (or a stronger boundary if you tend to be too nice), or an entirely different mindscape. The inner self may bring the feeling of calm, the right intuition for the next action, or simply peace. The process of alignment with these small, inner answers brings big changes over time. They change the direction of your thoughts, leading you into greater consciousness.
  7. Trust the universe and embrace the mystery. When life alters, it moves up and down. But it also responds to higher thoughts, emotions, and dreams—if we stay consistent in our practice of meditation. (The universe often works things out in an unexpected manner, which can beautifully exceed our expectations.)

Equinox Energy – Almost Time to Move Forward

 

The equinox occurred on March 20. We’ll feel the energy for the next several weeks. (Chart is based on the moment of the equinox.)

With the beautiful, spring-like weather and planets placed in interesting designs, we can contemplate beauty, the dreams of the higher self, and it’s almost time to take action to create a better life. With five planets in Aries, which is appropriately symbolized by the ram, we feel the “push” to initiate action, but it’s best to wait a week or two to think about ideas thoroughly because the planets in Aries co-join the disruptive square with Uranus/Pluto.

When combined with several planets in fire, Uranus can feel combustive and can bring sudden change. It’s wise to create a strategy based on the desires of the inner self—and slowly move into this plan with a “cool” head. Along with this, we are clearing karma from the past age, past lives, and releasing trauma (Neptune, Chiron, and South Node in Pisces.) These feelings, sensations, and opportunities will extend into mid-May.

It’s important to know it’s a time of adjustment. Our feelings may change on a daily basis. We may feel life more strongly than we have in the past because of awakening. Everything feels intense when the light becomes stronger. We also feel more of the darkness and angst because everyone is becoming more intuitive. (This is also part of working through the karmic past.)

The Sun (life), Mercury (communications), Venus (beauty, love), and Uranus (quantum field, sudden change) are placed in Aries. Aries is the beginning of the zodiac when life turns in the new cycle of the year. Aries is ruled by Mars (assertion and action), and it’s a passionate fire sign, which can awaken our feelings to expand and alter the course of life. (It would be perfect except that their energy aligns with Uranus in Aries, which can make energy move in cosmic—or very strange—directions.

Mercury affects all forms of communications including internet, transportation, emails, and conversations. Mercury in Aries hastens the process in a brusque way. (Mercury rules air, and it prefers clarity and time to think deeply. Mercury in Aries simply wants action.)

Venus, the ruler of love and beauty, is also placed in Aries. She is passionate and can be compulsive with this placement. With Venus retrograde, it’s important to realize love may feel as if it is fading or aspects of life are not so exciting. It’s helpful to remember that we are loved by the universe, and love will return to our lives in a renewed form.

Mars (assertion, male energy) is placed in Taurus, an earth sign governing possessions and material goods. It also gives connection to the earth and nature, which is useful with this volatile chart. This is a calming position that helps in finding grounding and seeing the beauty of life.

Jupiter (good fortune) sits in Libra, the only air sign in the chart. Air lends clarity to thought; it helps to separate passion and beliefs from the mind. (For example, I believe this because I was raised in this way. Maybe, it’s not true.) Jupiter in Libra also helps in finding beauty, balance, and grace on the walk of everyday life.

Saturn (discipline, karma) remains in Sagittarius, continuing the emphasis on soul searching, personal discipline, and the value of the spiritual life. Neptune (mysticism), Chiron (wounded healer), and South Node (solutions, which are no longer applicable) are placed in Pisces, indicating the importance of working through the drama and karma of the past age.

Notes

  • Mars (assertion) trines Saturn, which can give insight in taking the right, disciplined action—particularly through deliberate, meditative focus.
  • Saturn (limitation) trines Uranus, hinting at progress and good fortune through spiritual discipline.
  • The cardinal cross can make life feel very tense. It’s helpful to know it’s only a feeling. It disappears when meditating and/or when connected to the inner self.
  • There is very, powerful energy for creating change. With focus, it can be employed to create big, positive shifts.
  • Continue to work with karma and negative feelings/thoughts. Remember that emotion can change through positive focus and effort.

Last Quarter Moon: Embrace Change, Clear Emotion

 

At the moment, the skies remain gray, but the forecast offers space for breakthroughs, healing, and inner understanding. As the moon slowly ebbs, it extends a time for creating change through self-reflection and sharing with others. If we truly want to move through old wounds to the clarity of light, it’s possible.

Truthfully, we are moving into an unknown frontier where energy behaves differently, and the world sometimes feels chaotic. Much of the impetus of the planets is about vibrating above the worldly roar by taking action discerned from the inner space of stillness. The earlier “push” of moving forward with all planets direct remains, but it requires more reflection and inspired action.

The chart is weighted by water (emotion) with Venus, Mars, Neptune, and Chiron in Pisces, the sign of the past age. The Sun sits in Aquarius, heralding rapid communications, spiritual growth, and the work of individuals within a group. It’s an air sign, which rules the sphere of thought.

Mercury is in Capricorn, an earth sign ruling finances, success in the material world, and practical aspects of life. Mercury rules the mind and communication. Both thought and communication can feel a bit dense, and it can take longer to transmit a message through media and/or the mind.

Venus (feminine, earthly pleasures) and Mars (male energy, assertion) are conjunct or closely placed in Pisces, which intensifies both planets—and in this case, emotions (water.) Venus and Mars in Pisces can bring about harmony between the masculine/feminine within the self.

Venus also conjuncts Neptune (mysticism, illusion), which aids in aligning with the beauty in the world. Together, Venus and Neptune reveal the beauty and softness of life. This aspect can give the illusion that it’s perfectly correct to float through life—and not take action. (This is the illusory quality of Neptune in combination with the beauty of Venus.) On the positive, they support mystical insights and can strengthen intuition.

Mars in Pisces can bring up repressed feelings, old grudges and victimhood. It squares Saturn (karma, limitation), meaning it’s easy to feel the pain of the past and forget that life is about gaining from the lessons of karma, surrendering unrealistic beliefs, and moving into the quantum field.

Fortunately, Venus and Mars are conjunct (close to) Chiron with all signs placed in Pisces. Chiron, the wounded healer, helps us to become strong in overcoming the wounds of the past. Perhaps, it’s easier to think of “old” pain as a karmic script, which we are outgrowing with the passage of time in the Aquarian Age.

Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto form a T-square, which exerts pressure on the world. It brings a feeling of tension in the areas of good fortune, the quantum field/sudden change, and the hidden qualities of the underworld. It’s interesting because the energy comes and goes; it’s not consistent.

Jupiter (good fortune) squares (think tension) Pluto in Capricorn. Our ideals of balance, harmony, and good fortune will likely become rewritten by Pluto’s revelations from the underworld. It’s not a bad event, but it sometimes involves releasing our “happy” vision of the life and seeing through more realistic eyes. Jupiter also opposes Uranus (quantum field, sudden change), and the aspect indicates our vision of happiness may need adjustment as we move more deeply into the Quantum Field. (It could simply involve stretching our vision to include miracles, rapid positive happenings, etc.)

Saturn (time, karma) in Sagittarius trines Uranus, which points to the possibility of creating a new structure in the mind, body, or life to overcome our limitations and move into a new zone of life. Saturn also squares Chiron (wounded healer), meaning our beliefs about the past and past pain must be mitigated to receive healing from Chiron’s influence.

Uranus is square Pluto in the influential aspect which has altered and changed so much of the world. For many, it’s meant stronger dedication to spiritual principles, deeper awakening, and devotion to the light.

In short, it’s important to move through the dreaminess and take real action, but action has to come from the heart and an inner desire for expansion. If/when the past comes into play, it’s possible to call on the light and surrender old patterns and thoughts for true healing.

We will definitely change our view of the inner/outer world in the coming months. The task may move more quickly if we consider the qualities of the soul and the universe—and imagine what life might become with more miracles and light. After all, it’s the substance of the quantum field.
