Sacred Geometry: Designs for the Soul

Interview with Rowena Kryder, reprinted Courtesy Spirit of Maat

 

Julia: How were you introduced to Sacred Geometry?

Rowena: I was never really introduced; it arose from within. The meanings of the twelve energy patterns, as well as other patterns, are really just an observation of what goes on in nature and design.

This doesn’t mean I’m not grateful for teachers. But I have learned most of it on my own.

Julia: Where should one start with understanding the patterns of Sacred Geometry?

Rowena: Let’s begin with the point. The point in Sacred Geometry is the location of the center — it is the point of the compass. This is the place of connection to the Prime Source, the Divine One, the Unity of All Things. And this central point is inherent in all of the patterns of Sacred Geometry. There is nothing without the point.

The point represents, in a way, focus and Divine origin. The Hindus have the Bindu, which is basically the same. The center of every flower or of every planet or every sun is this point. The focal point is inherent in all things.

Scientists don’t think this way. They observe the sun and the planet from the outside, and say, “It will burn out,” or “Life will disappear within a certain time.” They say this because there is only so much energy. They are measuring everything with the idea of only so much energy. Scientists believe in entropy — the running down of the universe.

The possibility that such diverse form as exists in our Universe could have been created by chance simply does not exist. This is an aside from Sacred Geometry that it nevertheless touches upon.

If one considers that there is a Divine Source in this point, in the center of every sun, planet, star, plant, or person, then we may realize that each from has its own eternal regenerator within it.

If one is always connected to Divine Source, then one doesn’t need to run down at all.

Order — the opposite of entropy — comes from within, from this life-giving point. That point represents the “central” part of everything.

There is a great deal that all of us could do if we only put our consciousness into this point. This knowledge and understanding is part of the value of Sacred Geometry.

Think what you could do with simple meditation by merely focusing on the symbol of the point. This is a real way, a practical way, to actually regenerate by tuning into Source. Focusing on our central point, we are linked with the Eternal, the Transcendent, the Divine, the Absolute. That is the point of all origin.

Julia: Could you explain codes and archetypes, and how they are involved in the way you work with Sacred Geometry?

Rowena: Patterns, or symbols and codes, are delineated tools for understanding that are given to use from Prime Source. When we understand how to unravel the code or pattern, we receive a gift or an understanding.

To understand Prime Source, then, we have to decode the symbols.

There is a genetic code, and a language code. We have to rise in consciousness to understand these codes, and then we become closer to the Prime Source.

Archetypal patterns deal with many worlds. There are the spiritual world, the cultural world, the natural world, and so on, with archetypical patterns for each of these. Also, at any given point in time, there are older and newer archetypes.

We can use archetypal patterns as an intermediary to help us move or transform energy.

For example, intensity is an old quality that could be negative or positive. Intensity came from duality, and it was a focus that helped us move through things.

Now, however, we are becoming “whole-hearted,” which is a different type of focus that involves all of us, our hearts, without the duality. This is part of the move into the fifth dimension — living through our hearts and staying centered, instead of focusing through the will.

We are learning to see the interconnectedness of all things, rather than looking at things from the standpoint of gratification.

Julia: You mentioned twelve major energy patterns. What are they and what do they mean?

Rowena: The astrological signs are a division of the 360-degree circle into twelve energies or patterns. Also within the circle are four triplicities of the division of energies: fire, earth, air, and water.

So the twelve basic symbols or patterns can be correlated with the zodiacal signs. I’m listing them in this order.

Pattern #1: Aries (Fire)  Aries is the step. It is the way in which one preserves, through a step-by step process. Certain people from cultures like Mexico and the Middle America created a stepped pyramid form.

Pattern #2: Taurus (Earth)  The step moves us into Taurus, which represents the maintaining of substance. Substance is a dense, preserving type of approach.

Pattern #3: Gemini (Air)  Gemini relates to the branch. It has to do with choice points. And making a choice relates to duality, the binary code of “on” or “off” represented by the Twins. It also is about distribution of information or energy. We can see this in the body through the branching systems of the lungs and blood, or in the branches of trees. The beauty of trees is that in them, what normally falls — sap, blood, water, fluid — rises, and what normall rises — light — descends from the leaves. So the distribution or the branching represents alchemical change.

Pattern #4: Cancer (Water)  The spiral or vortex correlates with Cancer. The vortex creates energy flow. It is a generator, and it could be symbolized as a spiral galaxy, generating everything — stars, planets, everything living. There are two types of vortexes: open and closed. A closed vortex has two points at each end and a circle in the center. An open vortex has the point in the center, with open circles at each end. The movement of the generating spiral in any vortex is connected with the Golden Mean spiral. The Golden Mean acts as a kind of arc between Prime Source and living beings. All spirals generate and create energy in a similar way.

Pattern #5: Leo (Fire)  Leo is the radial, and its function is broadcasting. It is for maintaining codes. In the phenomenal world, it is just a star distinguished by its radiance. Flowers mirror Leo: They are little suns on Earth, and many of them have the radial form. They may be in diverse color, but there is meaning in the color.

Pattern #6: Virgo (Earth)  Virgo is the loop, the tube torus or doughnut shape. It is turning inside out. It could be a knot, like the Celtic designs, or a link, folding in on itself. The tube torus is like that, it is turning inside out or around, looping inside out, and it has to do with the transformation of substance, or cycles, like the turning of day into night, or the turning of the seasons. The knot is the cycle. Also, the aspect of transformation of substance relates to the food chain and digestion — how all of the animals and plants interact. There is a hierarchy, here — for example, there are billions of grains and comparably a few lions. There is a pyramid. We will evolve to the point where we do not eat animals, and eventually eat very little at all. The more lightly we eat, the higher our consciousness, and this is definitely the direction to go in. Also, what nourishment we do take in should be very useful. So Virgo has to do with the purification of substance into body or consciousness.

Pattern #7: Libra (Air) : Libra relates to the column, the straight vertical line. It has to do with balance and strength. One must be centered to hold whatever is being created. The spine or the trunk of a tree are symbols of the balance and strength that holds creation. The column can actually be visualized for aligning or creating a connection between Heaven and Earth, between Light and Dark. It creates connection between things.

Pattern #8: Scorpio (Water)  Scorpio is my favorite. It represents the wave, that which creates the energy flow. It is a matrix that distributes or transmits the flow of energy. It penetrates deep. Waves are the means by which Nature transmits the codes. Scorpio is symbolized by the Dragon, as well as waves of all kinds.

Pattern #9: Sagittarius (Fire)  Sagittarius represents nesting: one form within another. In fractals, it is the principle of recursiveness. I like to think of Sagittarius as a diamond. In a way, it is the most allied with transforming codes. The transformation actually takes the energy to another level. It is the return of wisdom and life to the source, but it also is a “stepping up” of the energy. All of the forms have to do with changing energy, but this is a taking or restoring of the energy to a higher level.

Pattern #10: Capricorn (Earth)  Capricorn is the circle or the sphere. Yet it is an Earth element. It is the circle that encases things, like a skull or the skin. It is protective, making a barrier that holds shapes and Creation. It holds the life force in the physical matrix.

Pattern #11: Aquarius (Air)  Aquarius is the grid, any type of grid. It can be triangular, square, cubic, or hexagonal. It is the shape or grid-work or focus to which things attach. It is the interconnecting force that gives us our commonality. For instance, most of us have five fingers, not six. This “five” is a function of nature. It is found throughout space and within all phenomena. All things are created through the grid. All planets, auric fields, and Universes are created and permeated by the grid. There are also consciousness grids.

Pattern #12: Pisces (Water)  Pisces is transformation. There is real chaos in this form. It is unpredictable. It is an ending energy form symbolized by death, diffusion, and decay. Darkness, confusion, and destructiveness are synonymous with this form. You could think of terrorists, their unpredictability, how they can’t really be stopped, bringing confusion and chaos. Pisces brings an end to order when things become too controlled, too fixed.

Julia: How would you use the geometric forms for healing or meditation?

Rowena: It makes sense to think about the triplicities. For instance, for an inflamed condition, you would probably want to use water or air, earth, and then water again. You wouldn’t treat an inflamation with a fire symbol.

For a particular consciousness or situation that you wanted to change, you might use water to transform, maintain, or create a new situation. You could dissolve an unwanted condition by focusing on the Pisces symbol, because it diffuses or transforms old situations by breaking them down.

A patient or person could visualize or draw the symbols. They could put the image on a particular point of the body for healing. Drawing these patterns, or any of the Sacred Geometries, activates the brain, heart, and lungs into a healing space. This practice actually brings life into the body.

Creating designs and patterns is very exciting. The indigenous people wore beautiful garments with incredible color and design. They understood that color and shape could bring about healing, balance, and peace. The shaman wore robes with particular energies brought into being by the ornaments and designs.

Symbols or shapes, like the branch, can be used to bring in energies in your home. For example, if you hvae a garden and you live in a dry environment, you would use the curvilinear wave. This would bring in the water energy to balance the dryness and heat. But if you lived in a swamp, you might want one of the fire signs, such as the star, to balance the dampness.

Julia: I know that you are interested in the education of children. What do you think needs to happen in the teaching of our children?

Rowena: Our children are a new race. So we are essentially the bricklayers of knowledge for a new race.

They cannot learn in the way that children have in the past. They won’t memorize facts without meaning. They need to be introduced to Universal Law so that everything has a meaning, a center, and interconnectedness.

Everything has a resonance or a harmonic system. So I consider harmonics as a parallel to Sacred Geometry. The different tones and colors are ratios. It is all a Universal language. This is the language that the new race of children needs. We can assist by being the anchor points, with a promise of creating a new culture.

Julia: How would this look in practical terms?

Rowena: I envision a series of rooms in which children could learn music, Sacred Geometry, math, and art. I see a computer room where they may watch DVDs. The teachers would not be so much instructors, or givers of information, as they would be people who could help the children move more deeply into whatever interested them.

All consciousness goes through the process of motion from simple to multifaceted, then back to simple again. Consciousness at some point must always become simple, for it has to move both ways. I don’t mean “simple simple.” I mean “complex simple.” A place where complexity becomes integrated.

Everything is coded, nested. We need to teach the children about the nested patterns, like the code of the chromosome, the code of the Universe. When we teach them about the interrelatedness of life, they will not lose their connection with Divine Source. They will stay connected with Cosmic Law.

Julia: What would you like to add in closing?

Rowena: Sacred Geometry is about our connection to Divine Source. If we learn to work with Universal Law and Divine Source, then all of life is filled with abundance. When we live in this way, we are introduced to a multiplicity of worlds and choices.

The old way was about connection to cause-and-effect. You worked at a job because of the effect of earning money, then you retired. But there was nothing to retire to, because you had lost your connection to Divine Source.

We need to leave behind us this addiction to cause-and-effect that narrows both the result and possible incomes.
Security is not the answer. Fitting in is not the point. These addictions lead to seeking pleasure, not joy.

Pleasure is eating chocolates on the sofa because nothing is left in life. It is the hedonistic search for more pleasure, a cycle of pleasure and pain. Joy is linking to the Source. True joy is moving through the pain and linking back to Source to receive true happiness.

Faith is not faith as we have known it. Faith is the decision of staying with the Divine Source for the answer.

Inspiration is the appropriate answer from the Divine Source. We can live our lives in a completely different way, linking to the Divine Source, receiving an abundance that which was not possible before.

I know that this works, because I have lived it.

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.

New Moon/Powerful Solar Eclipse

 

It’s a red-hot chart for the solar eclipse on Monday, August 21 with seven planets placed in fire. The element of fire inspires, ignites, and excites; it exudes passion, excitement, and a desire for the quest. It’s electrical, intense energy that confers sparks of creativity and emotion. 

While the chart is fabulous, presenting many, harmonious trines and aspects with Uranus (new age, sudden change, awakening), there is a passive quality imbued by six planets in retrograde and the New Moon phase. (The New Moon acts as a void. In the physical world, everything lies dormant during this time.  The same is true with retrogrades.)

Any eclipse is like throwing a circuit breaker; the energy goes off and on. But it’s more intense with a solar eclipse, and this one is definitely a big event. It contains some of the best aspects and energies in months, but it’s important to meditate and focus on dreams and desires that relate to the inner self. (It’s definitely not about everything moving into a higher form—all at once. It’s about finding our inner light and using it to shape life.)

Sun and Moon are conjunct on Leo 29, symbolized by “A Mermaid Waiting for a Prince to Bring Her Immortality”. In fairy tales and myth, the prince/princess symbolizes the union of the two sides of the self—the physical and spiritual. Obviously, this is our quest. Additionally, it’s denoted by the conjunction (close to) of Sun, Moon, and Mars to the North Node, which represents our spiritual purpose.

Sun (life), Moon (inner self, emotions), and Mars (action, masculine) trine Saturn (time, karma) in Sagittarius and Uranus (awakening, sudden change) in Aries. They are Grand Trines, which make it easier to create desires in physical form. The challenge lies in discerning the desires that align with the inner self as opposed to simply creating the opportunities that we think we want.

It’s likely that meditation can bring realizations, insights, and intuitions about the path of integration, but it will take time to unravel the information. Mercury (communications, mind) is retrograde in Virgo, which can help in a surprising sense by opening the right brain and encouraging healing and creativity.  (Mercury can represent the Trickster or the Higher Mind, which is accessed through the heart.)

Venus (love, material abundance, feminine) in Cancer exaggerates emotion in a “charged” chart. It can amplify sensitivity and emotional energy.  Venus square Jupiter can undermine motivation and interest in money and wealth. Venus opposes Pluto (subconscious, transmutation), which can bring passion and intensity or jealous and obsessiveness.

Mars (action, masculine) in Leo brings a desire for creative, passionate action, but it’s best to wait and reflect. Mars trine Uranus brings wonderful, innovative ideas, but the energy is uncertain and a bit erratic for putting ideas into form. (While waiting for a better time, create a beautiful notebook with fabulous ideas along with a schedule for bringing them into form. Send light to it each day.) With Mars in Leo, the caution always lies with the explosive quality of emotion and drama. (The opposite state involves remaining centered and calm.)

Jupiter in Libra increases the desire for beauty, balance, and justice. An opposition with Uranus can intensify feelings of boredom and bring a desire for sudden change. Jupiter squares Pluto, indicating a tendency to stretch too much into possibility and opportunity. It’s wise to stay practical and align with the energy by taking small, focused steps.

Retrograde and Outer Planets

Uranus

 

The Solar Eclipse/New Moon Chart presents a number of aspects. Many planets including Mercury, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, and Chiron are in retrograde position. When many planets are in retrograde, it is a time to review, rest, and dream.

Sun, Moon and Mars in Leo trine Saturn in Sagittarius, amplifying the ability to use spiritual and physical lessons in the past to create a more orderly, aligned life. Sun, Moon, Mercury, Mars and Saturn also trine Uranus, opens our mind to greater concepts of awakening and possibility.

Sun, Moon, and Mars conjunct the North Node (spiritual aspiration and direction), and Saturn and Uranus trine the North Node. In many ways, the chart is culmination of viewing life from the heart—and with courage—as we work together to combine the old and new worlds as a creation of love and light.

Tips:

  • It’s important to think about the power of manifestation—and the possibility of larger, better creations in the light. We may want to learn how to send light instead of reacting—or see a different outcome in place of a difficult one.
  • Light comes from inner work. We find it in meditation and reflection. Six planets in retrograde support the need for reflection and introspection.
  • With many planets in fire, there is a desire for action. But it’s not the right time. Use visualization, call angels and guides, and know the right time is coming. Wait.
  • We’re receiving a great deal of information about change and integration of time (Saturn) and awakening (Uranus). The eclipse will deliver new energies, but it will probably take time to translate them into clear thoughts, concepts, and forms.
  • Watch emotions and work to stay centered. It’s not the time for dramatic outbursts. Stay focused on work and routines. Build a better version of the self in the physical world.

Sabian Symbols based on Lynda Hill’s interpretations  

Sabian symbols give an additional interpretation for the degree of each planet.

Sun and Moon are on Leo 29, “A Mermaid Has Climbed to the Rocky Shore of a Bleak Coast; She Awaits the Prince Who Will Bring Her Immortality.” The mermaid represents the water element–a deeper understanding of unconditional love and emotion, which results from spiritual work. The Prince represents the inner self, the relationships developed and deepened from intuitional work.

Immortality—or life without duality—is a result of understanding spiritual law. It is also the conscious expression of the “true” self in physical life that results from change, sacrificing aspects of the outer self, and shaping reality into new forms.

Mercury retrograde is placed on Virgo 9, “An Expressionist Painter Making a Futuristic Drawing.” A painter creates a representation of what s/he sees and experiences in the physical world. A futurist painter uses creativity to represent his/her perception of the future.

The symbol can relate to the need to project thoughts, images, and ideas into the future for possible manifestation. Rather than simple reviewing ideas, it’s important to align the imagery with a structure, which contains the possibility of realization—and to take action to put them into form.

Venus sits on Cancer 25, “A Leader of Men Wrapped in an Invisible Cloak of Power.”  The Invisible Cloak refers to the power of good, which includes inner beauty and strength. All power involves the “test” of right use.

We must find the appropriate way of sharing our power of light, which involves love, healing, and help—without enabling the weak or helping those who may misuse it. There’s also a responsibility to develop our gifts and share them accordingly. On a higher level, individuals, who are aligned with light, have a cloak of power and protection known as the universal force.

NOTE: Aspects with Venus are difficult this week, and it’s important to know the “cloak” of power is there—even when we don’t feel it.

Mars is placed on Leo 21, “Intoxicated Chickens Dizzily Flap Their Wings Trying to Fly.” The symbol refers to intoxication of some kind through food or water. The substance has caused the chickens to forget their limitations. (While chickens can fly—if their wings are not clipped—the symbol refers to overriding our abilities and forgetting to see our limitations.)

Mars is action, and it refers to our work in the physical world. It’s important to mentally review projects on a practical level before taking action. With Mercury retrograde, it’s particularly important.

Jupiter is placed on Libra 21, “A Crowd upon a Beach”. The symbol depicts many people in a lovely location, enjoying the sun and water. A beach is typically a place for relaxation and connection with nature. (Mingling with a crowd can feel wonderful or lonely, but the enjoyment of nature is a wonderful aspect of life.) NOTE: Many of us will meet in nature while watching the eclipse!

Through the Lion’s Gate

Image by Lucy Adams

 

The term, Lion Gate, refers to the time when solar light (Leo) strikes the world.  The Lion’s Gate symbolizes walking through solar energy by cleansing and purifying the fabric of our consciousness–and recreating ourselves with a higher light level. It’s a quick process because the Lion’s Gate is open between July 26 and August 12—although the energy is at its height on August 8.

The Lion’s Gate occurs during “Dog Days” or when the star, Sirius, precedes the sun on the horizon. The Great Pyramid of Cheops is aligned with the rise of Sirius, the dog star, as the influx of solar light brought a time of rebirth—an opportunity to glide into our divine blueprint—to resurrect the True Self. In ancient times, the year began on July 23 with the blast of Leo (solar) energy, and the gate of energy remained open through September 15.

Think of it as a cosmic blast. Solar light is associated with the masculine energies such as spirituality, universal love, and pure light. Light cleanses, and it changes the body. For those who are open, it alters the DNA, raising our capacity to receive more light into our overall being. (The light is somewhat yang and can feel over stimulating on a mental/creative level if we don’t take time to rest and reflect.)

The light brings endings such as harvest, but it also illuminates new beginnings. This means opening up to the universe and expanding what we think is the fabric of life. For example, everyone has problems, large or small. There are desires and objects of our longing; yet, they are part of the human experience—and are eclipsed by the universal light.

Light also acts a quickening and cleansing agent. It cleanses our thoughts, emotions, and  illustrates the darkness in our lives. Part of the darkness (for all of us) lies in resonating and identifying with the recurrence of the shadows. What we didn’t believe that we had to have these experiences? Or we could alter our lives instantly?  Who would we become if we stepped into more deeply into the light? What if more positive events happened more quickly? (There is a “feeling” beneath the questions.)

There are inherent challenges in raising our light level. Sometimes, we think about what we are leaving behind and worry about who we will become. Other times, we wonder how we will get arrive–although visualizing, asking questions, making wishes, or believing might lead us to fulfillment with far less effort.

On the human level, there are changes with every new level of light. They can be grouped for simplicity, but we may feel the changes on more than one level–or not feel them at all. When we expand our awareness, we move into more light. (Particular aspects of change, including the planets, stars, or natural events, are experienced in different ways.)

Group I – Light workers and light givers. If you are already giving light and service to others, you may have felt quite tired for the past week. Stepping down light for yourself and other people can feel exhausting. You may need rest, more water, or gentle exercise. The DNA changes when you reach a higher level, and it takes time to process the new light. The light can bring our personal shadow (and the shadows of others) to light. It can point to needed changes, letting go of parts of the identity, or simply moving into more love. Regardless, your energy can feel scrambled, but meditation and rest will bring balance. (Sometimes, we are forced to let go of our focus temporarily. Rest in knowing that the universe makes everything work, and it will support you.)

Group II – Open heart and awakened. The influx of light can actually support your dreams and help in gaining greater creativity with current projects. Stay aware of love and the potential to move more deeply into it. It’s okay if your thoughts feel scrambled and confused from time to time, it will pass. Project happiness and expand your visualizations.

Group III – Mass consciousness.  This group tends to refuse the influx of light; they actually move more deeply into the shadow during these times. They usually become angry or depressed and can pull at your energy more than normal.  It’s helpful to ask for a higher light level and ask the universe to help in clearing and deleting the attachment from lower consciousness. (NOTE: you tend to experience mass consciousness–or lower consciousness– in the areas of our weaknesses and/or karma, it’s important to think about your abilities and good points after an encounter.)

A few tips:

  • Fire brings purification and cleansing. What do we want to leave behind in life? It can be as simple as fear or as complex as a whole portion of personal/professional life. Trust that the change is for the best and take a step ahead.
  • Fire expands things. It fans sticks and leaves into a huge flame. Where do we want to expand our life? What is the spiritual plan? How do we want to awaken more?
  • Where do we lack answers? Let the fire blaze a trail. Follow the light.
  • Use the creative fire to expand and revitalize your life.
  • Let the solar light lift the inner and outer life to a higher level. Who would we become on a higher level?

Finding Higher Frequencies

 

Everything is related. When following a desire, we increase and diminish parts of life. Time is a simple example. When we delve into our spiritual practice, we take time away from a previous pursuit. When we see the beauty in nature, we discard other thoughts. (When I write this, I think of nothing else.)

With the influx of energies, there is a shift in perception, feelings, and responses to energy. Many people are awakening and bringing more light to the planet. As awakening continues, we perceive life differently because light causes everything to move at a higher frequency.

Here are a few insights:

  1. As we become more conscious, our awareness shifts. We become aware that “reality” shifts, spins, and stirs with the state of our consciousness, which is reflected in the flow of events. (This may cause positive and negative events in life such as the falling away of specific relationships and/or unexpected opportunities.)
  2. We affect “life” and our lives more than we want to admit. Our lower thoughts and feelings may attract an irritable person, and higher thoughts may pull in a flow of love. (For example, the sun shines when we think a higher thought, or we receive a pleasant email from a loved one.) Conversely, we can also become more sensitive to the negative energy of others, which can mean altering relationships, learning to communicate in a different way, or changing an aspect of life.
  3. Consciousness connects us more deeply to all sources of information and energy. We feel life more intensely. We may feel more drawn or repelled to particular sources of information. Our higher consciousness begins to direct us more strongly. (As we become more intuitive, our “reads” and feelings become more accurate–and are felt more forcefully.)
  4. Energetic changes affect us more. For example, we may feel tired or over-energized with the current planetary changes. We may experience calm or anxiety. (Meditation–and water–help with swings.)
  5. Swings in duality – the movement of emotions and thoughts – may seem stronger. When we experience the inner self, consciousness moves into a place of being centered. It focuses on “ONE” point. Naturally, we’re more aware of the motion after a quiet experience.
  6. Part of the shift can feel painful because it means moving away from people that we refuse to grow and/or releasing aspects of life that are meaningful to us. In a real sense, we’re leaving the past behind, but it doesn’t always feel easy or comfortable.
  7. Increased consciousness brings awareness of our impact on our internal/external state. We begin to understand how our happiness and unhappiness respond to our internal dialog, old beliefs, and expectations. With this awareness, life shifts.
  8. “Giving” and “helping” are subtly changing. We can hold a vision or send light to anyone, but our spiritual help is balanced with the spiritual commitment and effort of the receiver. (In the Piscean Age, healers and light workers gave in a different way by pouring out energy whenever they felt led to share and help. In the Aquarian Age, we balance and gauge energy for the best effect.)
  9. During flashes of awakening, we perceive a beautiful future in a balanced world. There is a feeling of reassurance, comfort, and support. (We may wonder where it is in difficult moments, but it is how the universe shares its visions—and activates it through our light.)

Fiery New Moon

 

The New Moon appears at 5:45 am ET on Sunday, July 23. Turn on the air conditioning–this new moon chart is hot!  With seven planets placed in fire signs, it’s a summer heat wave that precedes the upcoming Lion’s Gate and the Lunar/Solar Eclipses.

Typically, the New Moon brings a still point—a pause before a new cycle of life begins. With Sun (life), Moon (emotions), Mercury (thought, communications), and Mars (action, masculine) placed in Leo, we’ll definitely feel inspiration and/or emotion. (The challenge lies in directing and containing the flames.)

Fire at its best brings heightened passion, spiritual longings, purification and a desire to tread the path of the heart. It’s also creative and loves to mingle with universal currents by transforming intuitive leads into spiritual desires and pursuits. The “lower” side of fire includes strong emotional reactions, selfishness, and a need for drama. (Astrology reflects the dual nature of the planet; we choose the cause/effect through placement of consciousness.)

Sun, Moon, Mercury, and Mars all sit in Leo, a fire sign represented by the lion. Leo rules the heart, and it is generous and courageous. The fiery energy is heightened by the conjunction between Sun, Moon, and Mars—in addition to a fiery Grand Trine. (Mars also squares Uranus, heightening frustrations and emotions.) North Node (spiritual direction for the planet) is also placed in Leo, suggesting the importance of honing our thoughts and emotions to grow in a spiritual direction. By attuning to the heart, it’s possible to hear and feel the vibration.

A Grand Trine bestows lovely creativity and heightened ability to manifest with Mercury (thought, communication) in Leo, Saturn (karma, time) in Sagittarius, and Uranus in Aries (sudden change, quantum field.) It’s a wonderful time to manifest more awakening and magic along with a happier, more peaceful life. (Grand Trines are powerful, so make a wish!)

Mercury (thought, communications) sits in Leo, conveying creative images and thoughts—and making it easier to connect visualizations with the heart. Mercury trines Saturn (karma, time), giving a harmonious ability to align new ideas with lessons learned in the past. It also trines Uranus, heightening our ability to create and communicate in an original and innovative way.

Venus (feminine, beauty, possessions) is placed in Gemini, the dual air sign of the twins. Venus Is light, talkative, and gregarious in this position—and air (clear thought) is valuable because it expands clear thinking about issues surrounding love and partnerships. Venus trines Jupiter (good fortune) in Libra, indicating that the flow of loving, positive thoughts heighten good fortune. Venus also opposes (opposite) Saturn (time, karma), which can bring feelings of insecurity and personal doubt. (They are only temporary and will pass in time.)

Venus (love, relationships) and Saturn (time, karma) square Neptune (illusion, mysticism), adding a veil of confusion to the mix. It may be difficult to see through illusion when focusing on love and/or decisions that involve a passage of time.

Mars (assertion, masculine) in Leo causes major difficulty in the chart, transforming errant emotions into frustrations and anger through its square (tension) with Uranus (quantum field, sudden change.) Mars can act as a warrior, and part of the challenge of Mars lies in using discipline to pause and respond—rather than floundering into reaction. Additionally, Mars trines Chiron (the wounded healer), hinting that this attitude can bring profound healing.

Jupiter remains in Libra with a focus on balance, beauty, and light. It also squares Pluto (the underworld, transformation), which increases the outer world’s desire for success, wealth, and attainments in the physical world.

Uranus (sudden change, quantum field) remains in Aries throughout 2017. Fortunately, it no longer squares Pluto, but it does form aspects with Sun/Moon, Mercury, Mars, and Saturn. Five aspects with Uranus provide an electrical connection. (Uranus is a bit like a roller coaster; it can pull our energy up or down. Its direction responds to our placement of consciousness.)

The energies with Pluto are relatively clear, and we won’t miss Pluto’s dark current of the subconscious and flow of transformation for a few days. Aspects with Chiron are powerful and positive with a trine featuring. Sun, Moon, and Mercury, heightening the possibility of using fire (spiritual passion) to cleanse and mitigate our inner wounds. It’s an excellent time to seek a healer and/or guide—and seize the moment to move into the next level of spiritual life.

Tips:

  • Focus on the positive attributes provided by Leo, which includes generosity, positive drama (playing, attending social activities, and parties), and live from the heart. Use excess energy to write, paint, and create. Burn off the intensity through physical exercise and work.
  • Apply the energies of the Grand Trine to manifest wisely and wonderfully. (Mercury, thought + Saturn, time/karma + Uranus, innovation/Quantum Field. See as heart thoughts coupled with insights from the past/karma can lead to realizations, which are activated by the Quantum Field.
  • Venus (love, personal possessions) trines Jupiter (good fortune). Use clarity of mind to pull in pleasing moments and opportunities—and a positive focus around relationships.
  • Think before you speak and/or act. Mars (assertion, male) conjuncts Uranus (rapid change/quantum field.), which can bring volatile reactions.
  • It’s a hot chart with many planets placed in fire. Make meditation a priority and visualize a peaceful flow of events.

 

Sabian Symbols

This reading of the symbols is based on Lynda Hill’s work. The symbols act as a guide, providing additional information about the placement and energy of planets. (I enjoy the additional perception offered by the symbols as they reveal a great deal about the underlying theme of the chart.)

Sun and Moon are on Leo 1, and the Sabian Symbol is perfect for the astrological chart, “Under Emotional Stress, Blood Rushes to a Man’s Head.” Emotions and ambitions cause reactions, but decisions are best made from a place of peace and calm. Meditate before taking action.

Mercury at Leo 27 sits on “Daybreak—the Luminescence of Dawn in the Eastern Sky.” Daybreak represents renewal of life, the appearance of the sun on the horizon and light-giving light. By moving into the higher consciousness, represented by light, we can find illumination in the agitated mind, presented by the degree of sun and moon.

Venus is on Gemini 21, “A Tumultuous Labor Demonstration.” A demonstration involves voicing perceptions of unhappiness, unfairness, and a lack of balance. It can represent overreaction or a desire for peace and democracy. (Venus sits on this degree, so it is likely to pertain to feelings about relationships)

Mars sits on Leo 2, “An Epidemic of Mumps” can represent contagion—a thought, principle, or physical illness that spreads through groups of people. It can also relate to fear and angry emotions. With Mars on this degree, it may refer to the high anger/fear level of mass consciousness.

Jupiter is placed on Libra 16, “After the Storms of Winter, A Boat Landing Stands in Need of Reconstruction.” A storm blasts through a psychological or physical structure, leaving ruin in its wake. (Many of us have passed through this alteration in the past few years.) Now, recovery, rebuilding, and healing can take place.

Saturn is on Sagittarius 23, “A Group of Immigrants Fulfilling the Requirements for Entering a New Country.” If we view the “new” country as the next level of the New Age, the symbol offers a revelation. It’s time for those, who have meditated and focused on love, to enter life at a new level of awareness.

Uranus sits on Aries 29, “The Music of the Spheres.”  This symbolic represents the melodious interaction of the spiritual world in the physical world—if we perceive it. The seven days of the week coincide with the seven chakras and colors of light, the twelve hours of the day align with the numerical process of completion, etc.

Planetary Change: Full Thunder Moon

 

The Thunder Moon appears on Sunday, July 9, and its name reflects the heat of the season, which brings thunder, lightning, and storms. It’s an appropriate name for this moon chart, which is weighted in fire (passion) and water (emotion.) The energies can create steam (fire/water and heat/emotion) or can be used to forge instruments such as a sword, which cut through blocks and obstacles.

The planets emphasize the use of emotions for dreaming and weaving a new way of life. (Many of us feel the quickening of the New Age, but we must put it into form by feeling and dreaming on an intuitive level.) We are creating a new world by moving into the sphere of feeling/intuiting while releasing illusion about the life that we had before “time” changed.

Sun (life) and Mars (action) in Cancer encourages flowing emotion that originates in the heart, and Moon in Capricorn gives the practical power to bring dreams into physical form. This moon phase focuses on planning and gathering strength, which occurs through “right” action, originating within the inner self. (The full moon adds light to the darkness, which can bring illumination and understanding.)

Mercury (communications) sits in Leo, a fire sign, which loves drama and the center stage. Mercury in Leo is also brave and courageous, making it a wonderful time to express our inner truth and/or speak from the heart. In this placement, it quickens communications and heightens passion.

Lovely Venus (love, beauty, feminine) is placed in Gemini, an air sign. It highlights thoughts and feelings about love, beauty, and possessions. Venus trines Jupiter (good fortune) in Libra, bringing clarity of thought about objects of our passion. (Venus in Gemini can bring too much talk, short travels, or lack of focus. It can also give positive communication, activities, and intellectual focus.)

Venus

Mars (action, masculine) sits n Cancer, a water sign. Mars in Cancer can flow into dreams; it can also become emotional and way-laid by old emotional patterns such as manipulation or martyrdom. On the most basic level, Mars in Cancer offers the opportunity to flow through patterns and find renewal through responses rather than reaction.

Jupiter in Libra continues to bring balance and beauty to a challenging chart. It finds good fortune through clarity and harmonious thoughts. It focuses on beauty through its harmonious trine with Venus, and its square (tension) with Mars, indicates a preference for higher thought—as opposed to emotional reactions.

Saturn (time, past, karma) remains in Sagittarius, providing a continued focus on spiritual practices and dedication. Saturn squares (tension) Neptune (illusion, idealism), indicating the importance of surrendering the idealism and illusion of the past when weaving a new dreamscape for life in the bold New Age. A trine between Saturn and Uranus encourages the emergence a new world, based on blending the mistakes the old and the perception of the new ages.

Sun and Mars in Cancer trine (harmonious) Neptune in Scorpio. The combination of Sun (life) and Mars (action) trine Neptune can lead to beautiful dreams for the manifestation of a new life. Three planets in water can move our emotions in a lovely, tranquil way—and Neptune retrograde awakens our psychic abilities.

Sun and Mars are opposite Pluto (underworld, transformation), which brings the darkness in our personal lives to the surface. Fortunately, we are developing powerful tools such as universal love, meditation, and knowledge of the inner self—which bring substantial light along with the added gifts of imagination and intuition.

5 Steps for Creating Your Dreams

 

Manifestation alters with the changing energies. Staying connected with our dreams is one of the most important acts of our lives because it connects us to the true self. It also determines the flow of our life. Otherwise, our life repeats through the projection of the subconscious mind and its old patterns. When we focus on creating a new life—through spiritual connection—our lives change their flow and move toward greater happiness and inner knowing.

  1. Begin by meditating on the desired outcome. See the image of your desire as already realized. Add the emotions of the accomplished desire. If you looked back at the fulfilled desire, how would you feel? Emotions are extremely important as they color the feeling of the desired outcome.
  2. Repeat the process above 2x daily. Spend ten minutes in meditation in the morning and evening. Notice your feelings after the meditation. (Your feelings may change from time to time. Often, they switch from energized to a feeling of “it’s not working.” It’s okay. Continue the process.)
  3. Use a laser sharp one minute visualization several times during the day. See the realized dream as completed. It’s helpful to do this if you find yourself thinking about the desire. It’s even more helpful to keep your mind OFF the desire at other times during the day.)
  4. Send pink light to your dream often. If you think about the dream, send light to it. Don’t think about it. Manifestation is more of a spiritual and feeling process. Thoughts about how, why, or when only slow it down.
  5. Have patience and faith. Manifestation can occur almost instantaneously or take a long time. Everyone’s process is different. (Don’t compare.) Manifestation also teaches us about our patterns, thoughts, and emotions that go in the opposite direction of the desire. It can take time to process the information and make subtle changes.

Using Your Intuitive Powers 

  • We can use the heightened ability of increased intuitive ability to “feel” our way through life. What is the best time to complete a task, run errands, or make a phone call? What is the difference in feeling our way through life and simply acting because we should?
  • In psychic/intuitive work, there is an art of connecting with others. We see and feel what they feel, but there is also a distance. The exchange takes place because both individuals agree to this. With the shift in energy, the distance between ourselves and others is diminished. We may feel everyone around us—and rather intensely. What do we notice about this?
  • Meditate on the image of silver lake, a sparkling stream, or the sea. Feel the motion of water and flow gently into your dreams and desires.
  • Air communicates thought and desire. Sit outside and look at the trees. Imagine the wind carrying thoughts and desires into the future.
  • Notice the feeling of happy alignment, which is light and free. Notice what lowers feelings/vibrations and feels heavy. Learn to release those thoughts and move into a high frequency visual.

Manifestation is important because it expands our gifts and heightens our vibration. It connects us with the One/All. When we manifest from the soul, we bring these subtle vibrations into the world for anyone who desires the same type of change. It is a learning process, which teaches us to determine the difference between our higher and lower vibrations while tapping into Source. Of all the aspects of manifestation, the most important is the feeling of connection with the universe and the higher self.

The process is never completed; it returns with a new wave of inspiration—a desire to create bigger and better things. This is the pattern of co-creation, of learning about the soul and its inner resonance.

Special Note: Our problems actually show us where we need more energy and a higher vibration. They give a point of focus for our manifestations. For example, we usually want to experience and feel the opposite way of how we experience a problem. This becomes the subject of a desire for manifestation. It’s how we use the fabric of light and darkness on the spiritual journey.
