Full Moon Forecast, November’s Super Moon

astronomyconstellation

 

The full moon appears on Monday, Nov 14, and it is a super moon—the closest positioning of the earth and moon since 1948. This is a particularly powerful full moon, ushering in cosmic energies and ending the Scorpio moon cycle. With the moon placed in the water sign of Scorpio, there is an intense emphasis on emotions.

The Sun sits in the last degrees of Scorpio, an intense, intuitive sign. The Moon is opposite the Sun in Taurus, a fixed earth sign, which rules the earth, possessions, and physical life. One of the gifts of this moon is transforming spiritual desires and longings into physical form.

Both Sun and Moon are placed in feminine, magnetic signs, making it easier to “pull” our desires. Sun in Scorpio gives intuitive power to see beyond limitations by finding the right vision. It bestows the needed concentration to focus on the dream. Moon in Taurus brings a strong connection to the earth and physical body. Moon in Taurus also confers the ability “feel” our desire on a physical level with full sensation so that we can fully create it.

Mercury (thought, mind, communication) sits in Sagittarius, adding fire and creative expression to the line-up. This placement ignites our passions and spiritual pursuits. It can also give a feeling of restlessness. Mercury squares Neptune (mysticism, illusion) in Pisces, increasing the need of seeing through illusion and finding a higher truth.

Venus (feminine love, material possessions, beauty) is placed in Capricorn, and it’s not a perfect place for this planet. Venus in Capricorn brings a strange equation of strong and suppressed emotion, which can bubble to the surface in strange ways. With this placement, there’s an opportunity to build structure in relationships, but it’s also important to remember it’s more difficult to correctly convey emotion from the heart.

Mars (overall energy, assertion) recently moved in the sign of Aquarius, which encourages free thinking and the New Age. (Thank goodness!) Mars represents overall energy, and Aquarius represents individuals working together in groups to collect light and create change. It’s a very helpful energy at this particular time.

Mars trines (harmoniously) Jupiter (good fortune), which means our work can benefit from humanitarian efforts and sharing our light. Jupiter (good fortune) is opposite Uranus (spiritual change) in Aries, placing a focus on balance as opposed to new beginnings.

Saturn (time, limitation) trines Uranus in Aries, emphasizing the need to stay on the spiritual path as well as possible benefits for this focus. Saturn (time, karma) squares Neptune (mysticism), creating the continued emphasis on discerning the difference between illusion and truth, particularly on the spiritual path. Uranus and Pluto are more tightly squared, continuing periodic blasts of darkness as we walk toward the light.

Overall, there are many planetary placements for development of spiritual life, manifestation, and cosmic growth, but it requires a strong focus and commitment to love with a big helping of faith.

Sabian Symbol Reading, based on Lynda Hill’s Sabian Symbols

Sun is on 23 Scorpio, A Rabbit Metamorphosed into a Nature Spirt. This symbol speaks about the transmutation of a lower, physical form into more spiritual being—or a specialized state of being. The motion into a higher form and frequency is a natural change associated with spiritual work.

Moon sits on 23 Taurus, A Jewelry Shop Filled with the Most Magnificent Jewels. This symbol speaks of physical rewards, wealth and gifts. To receive them, we must acknowledge our worthiness and our wiliness to receive.

Mercury is placed on 4 Sagittarius, A Little Child Learning to Walk with the Encouragement of Parents. This symbol refers to the need for support when learning new skills. It also speaks about the uncertainty of growing into spiritual gifts but taking the first steps—regardless of hesitancy.

Venus is on 3 Capricorn, The Human Soul in its Eagerness for New Experiences Seeks Embodiment. The symbol refers to new levels of consciousness, which will soon be revealed. It can refer to creativity, love, intuition, or a physical gift, but “something” will soon make itself known.

Mars is placed on 4 Aquarius, A Hindu Healer Glows with a Mystic Healing Power. This is a wonderful symbol for Mars, which refers to overall energy—particularly physical energy. Mystic healing power can refer to prana, light, or simply channeling the Divine, but it does indicate an increased ability to heal the self.

The Toltec Art of Dreaming with Don Jose Luis

donluis

 

Don Miguel Ruiz, best-selling author of The Four Agreements, is a nagual of the Eagle Knight lineage who has passed his knowledge on to his son, Don José Luis. Here, Don José Luis speaks about the three basic skills — awareness, stalking, and intent — that a warrior develops in order to transcend the realm of the ordinary, and their esoteric application to dreaming.

Julia: What is the difference between Toltec dreaming and some of the Western teachings regarding lucid dreaming?

Don José: Dreaming is a big Being, and we are married to Dreaming. All of life is a dream. We are a walking mirror.

God is a mirror — everything we think, feel, or believe is reflected back to us through this great mirror that is life. The world is a mirror that reflects back to us all that we believe. The world does not create what we are experiencing. We do that.

We create our beliefs, and the mirror of God reflects them back to us. God can send us only love and beauty. We create the distortions in this mirror of our life that is so short — and so beautiful.

There is an exercise I like to use with mirror work:

Put a candle in front of a mirror and look at yourself in the mirror. Look at the image as though it is a person you have never seen, and think about this person. It is the only person who is completely loyal to you and who totally loves you. When you think about your image in this way, it will help you to pull out of the lies and move into love.

Julia: A shaman uses stalking in dreaming to find the weaknesses in his consciousness. How is the art of stalking used in Toltec dreaming?

Don José: Stalking is used in dreaming to find the mental and emotional images that prevent us from being free. When we dream, we must learn to discover in our dreams the forms or energies that limit us. They may repeatedly take the same form, or they may take different forms. They may appear in many different dreams, or just one dream that reoccurs.

We must dream with the purpose of stalking, to try to stalk who is within ourselves and see what our beliefs are. We primarily stalk two things in dreaming: thinking (what is in the head) and heartbreak.

By heartbreak, I mean the incredible pain we feel from the terrible things that have happened to us. When we feel the pain of heartbreak, we close off parts of ourselves. In some way, we stop living. If the same situation comes up again, we say, “Oh, no, I won’t let myself be hurt again!”
But this is no way to live.

Life is so short and so incredibly beautiful. It is such a gift. You must forgive yourself for experiencing heartbreak. You must love the heartbreak in your life, because it is part of living. Most importantly, you must create a better dream.

We also stalk to find the thoughts that keep us chained in “reality.” These thoughts that we think so many times limit us. If we can identify these limiting thoughts, we can pull the energy back from their mental patterns and create anew.

It is so important to take back these lost energies and share with the world the gifts given to us from the angels and God. Heartbreak and limiting thoughts are like a cage. They keep us caged, imprisoned, in the three-dimensional world. The cage is created from the fear of being the Self, of being authentic.

Lies and fears about our Self are the forces that keep us in the cage—and they are not real. We must reclaim the key to our cage by pulling the energy back from our thoughts and our heartbreak. In this way, we become free.

Stalking in dreaming can be compared to opening gates. If a state of mind or heartbreak has been identified in dreaming, then we find the opening point of the wound, or the judgment, and we go in our memory to the point just before it occurred. When we remember the time before the memory occurred, we find a closing point for the wound — and then we go a little further back in time, so we can avoid returning to the wound.

Now we can see an entirely different world, or movie. We have created a better dream. It is possible to use this technique to open a gate and see a different view.

Julia: Can you explain a little more about using stalking to create a better dream?

Don José: Again, until we are free, heartbreak and thinking will always appear in our dreams. This is because life is nothing but a reflection of ourselves and our memories.

One way of using stalking with heartbreak is to relive all the heartbreak in your life. Take one incident at a time and imagine that you are pulling all of the energy out of that terrible experience. Imagine it over and over until you can feel nothing when you watch images in your mind.

Then take the experience and “dream” a whole different reality. See your life moving in a different direction, a wonderful dream, with a happy experience in place of the heartbreak.

See the way that you want to live, as opposed to how you have been living. It is possible to do this with all of your life.

For example, let’s say there is a teenage girl who has a beautiful voice. She goes about singing with this exquisite voice, and the birds answer her. Everyone pauses to hear her. Then one day her mother tells her, “Stop singing. You have an ugly voice.”The girl stops singing, and the world is deprived of the beauty of her gift.

She could imagine, in place of her heartbreak, that the experience with her mother never occurred — or that she told her mother that she was wrong. Then she must see herself singing during those lost years, and in the present and the future.

It is so ironic. We listen the most to the ones we think love us the most, and so often they do not know us at all. These people that we think love us don’t even know themselves, so they cannot possibly know us. And yet we lose our gifts and powers to these people.

An exercise I use with group dreaming is called “Mirror Mitote.” You imagine that the voices in your mind are like the sounds in a supermarket, where we can hear other people talking very loudly and we have trouble focusing.

The mind reflects this kind of environment. We hear the voices and opinions of others when we don’t believe in ourselves. The voices become very loud. We have to learn to look at our beauty, and see the opinions as lies.

Julia: I remember reading about recapitulation in Castaneda’s books. How does that relate to dreaming?

Don José: Recapitulation is more like daydreaming. We use recapitulation during our waking hours to review our limitations, our fears and heartbreak. We review experiences that keep us in limitation until those experiences become like a ghost town, until visiting them is like going to a village that used to be alive and is now gray and old with no one in it.

Before recapitulation, the memory may have been vivid — you could hear all the characters speak, and you reacted to them. But now the memory, or the town, is empty. There is no emotional or mental response. You have recaptured all energy from that moment, from that time in your life. It doesn’t have the same flavor or taste. It is flat.

Detachment is a principle point to achieve. Whenever we are living in our opinions, we are in judgment of our Self or other people. We are seeing only our own expectations or limitations. Doubt is also a lie that inhibits intent.

Even our names are a lie. Have you ever thought of that? All of our lies, opinions, and judgments keep us caged inside the body. All limitations come from fear. We must detach from our fears.

When we achieve detachment, we pull the energy out of the lies in our lives, and it goes back into the assemblage point.

Julia: What is the assemblage point? How does it affect dreaming?

Don José: The assemblage point is our point of focus. It is one of the keys to dreaming. It is exactly like a television with many channels. You can choose any channel, and anything might be on that channel — wrestling, a sad love story, the news… Our assemblage point is like a vortex of perception, an altar that opens us to experience. We can expand or reduce that perception.

Everyone thinks of something as they fall asleep. I do not care what people say — everyone thinks of some incident, person, or place. And as they fix their minds, they are focusing their assemblage point. People do this in real life when they go into a theater to watch a sad movie. What happens when they come out? They are sad or crying. Why? The emotional state changes because they have shifted their assemblage point to experience sadness.

When we can pull all of the energies of our life back into the assemblage point, we begin to become free.

We can focus the assemblage point on any channel. But we are accustomed to focusing on the channels we have learned through our life’s memories and the channels that are familiar to the mass consciousness.

We have to learn to change our perceptions from our reason, which is composed of our objective thoughts, to our Will. When we will the dream, our personal power changes from the mental construct to spiritual perception. When we are free from the cage of the mind, our energy increases dramatically, and we can discover our true identity.

It takes faith, strength, and tenacity to learn to change the focus of the assemblage point through intent. It also takes patience. Intent is faith — it is believing in our magic more than we believe what we think we see in the mirror called life.

The Buddha turned arrows into flowers. He understood the dream. Intent is a silent knowing that we are the creator of the dream.

A true master knows that anything is possible. He no longer doubts. And everyone can be a master. Everyone can create an incredible life through the magical part of the Self, and dreaming is a vehicle to do so.

Julia: When we begin to dream with intent, how does this change our lives?

Don José: We become free of expectation and limitation. We are no longer bothered by the opinions of the mass consciousness. Our desire or intent for freedom becomes so strong that we dream it and live it.

When heartbreak occurs, we begin to see that it is illusion. We are able to say, “That was a good one, that illusion almost tricked me. But I won’t fall for it.”

We realize that all of the “bad” things that have happened in our lives are just that — stories that we tell to ourselves and to whomever will listen. We stop letting our stories hurt us. We learn to take the energy back from the story and end it in a different way.

You see, we are always doing one of two things: We are either creating, or we are living lies. When we are creating, we start to have faith, love, and gratitude. We say “thank you” to the Earth and God for everything.

We learn to speak in the true language of feelings or emotions, rather than opinions and words. We begin to create our dream through the good feelings and happy thoughts that we have. This leads us to God. Through the clear channel of the Self that is created, many miracles happen, like the flowers that the Buddha created. This makes us fall in love with living.

Love of life is contagious. When we are not affected by illusions, we can create, and we can help other people find love in living.

A good analogy is to look at both dreams and life as a vacation or a movie. It is best to plan our vacation, to drive the correct vehicle, to make reservations, to choose the right geography. Or we can make a great movie if we plan or create it. If we don’t create or plan, then obstacles occur. The obstacles could be compared to the illusions of the mind. But if we have created carefully, we make the most beautiful movie imaginable.

This is how it is to live on Earth. We can travel blindly through the obstacles of our thoughts and emotions, or we can gather back the energy and create the dream. It is a catwalk between illusion and creating, but we must do our best to enjoy the gift of living. When we are capable of creating the dream, all of living becomes a Paradise on Earth.

It is all about spirituality and love. The angels are taking over the planet, little by little. We are all angels, and we have forgotten. We must let the flow of life within us live. We must remember that all of life is a dream, a movie — we can choose to watch a beautiful movie.

It is all beautiful if we can only remember.

Sharing Our Light, A Gentle Way of Creating Change

introspection
Part of everyone’s purpose is to share light and love. As we become adept at it, our higher purpose (dharma) is revealed. Wherever we are and whatever we are doing–we can always choose to send light to others–and to the world. When we send light and love, we create positive change within ourselves and the world. We also help ourselves by shifting into a higher frequency. 

Here are a few tips:

  1. Take a few minutes to meditate and find the inner self. Send light to distracting thoughts, small problems, and the state of the world. Feel the energy falling like sunlight on the world. (Over time, the universe and inner consciousness will direct the thoughts.)
  2. We can send love and light to everyone in our life—the good, bad, and indifferent. It’s important NOT to see the person changing and to refrain from a desired outcome. Simply see their higher self and send light to this part of the person. (There is generally a feeling of softness or a click when we connect appropriately. At this point, pull back and send light to another person.)
  3. It’s helpful to see the placement of our consciousness as a directive. What we find bothersome in the outer world is a good target for light. We can send light to pipelines, politics, or poverty, (As light accumulates from many people, the vibrations heighten—eventually, altering the way that matter takes form.)
  4. We can create self-healing by sending light to any tension, pain, or lack of alignment in our body. See golden light filling the place of weakness and pain. Feel the relaxation and let go. (Everything is energy, and energy responds to light.)
  5. On an intuitive level, one of the most harmful human practices is sending anger or disturbed emotion to whatever we don’t like—including other people when they don’t follow our agenda. By sending light, feeling the “good” and returning to the inner self, we create a practice of heightening—not lowering—the vibrations of everything in our life. (Problems with other people often disappear without discussion when we become adept at this technique.)
  6. Send light to environment around you, including nature, people, trees, and buildings. The auric field extends for quite a distance around awakened people. It’s helpful to send love and love to everything within our energy field so that they vibrate with us.
  7. Sending light leads to greater connection. It speeds the vibration of particles in our field. It connects us with our heart and universal love. It’s a wonderful way of loving ourselves and bringing “good” into the world

 

Sending Light, Easy Exercises

Exercise One

  • Sit in meditation until a feeling of connection occurs. Choose an issue in the world, a part of the self, or a person as a recipient of light. Imagine golden light filling your energy field and bringing a feeling of softness and warmth.
  • Imagine sending the golden light to the chosen “object”. See golden light filling every particle of the situation, person, or place. A happy, relaxed feeling should follow.
  • Pull back and refill the self with golden light.

Exercise Two

  • Imagine a beautiful pink light filling the heart space. Let the light grow until it fills the body. Feel the loveliness of universal love.
  • Send it to a person, place, or situation. Send it as wave—or like the beam of a flashlight. Continue to send for a few seconds. (Some people cannot feel universal love, but it does help them.)
  • Pull back and return to the heart space.

A Time of Awakening

intuitive

 

Admittedly, many people flow through the outer world as though nothing has changed. But it is the time of the Great Awakening when we can open the door to the “Field” and feel the flow of love and light. It’s also a time when everyone chooses to go higher or lower. (In yoga, it’s taught that we either become more of who we are or less of our true presence through practice. It’s a determining factor for everyone.)

Throughout the past three years, the patterns of energy work altered (along with the patterns and seasons of the earth.) When energy heightens, we have new perceptions. Everything begins to work differently.

Here are a few observations:

  1. The energy continually oscillates; it moves up and down. One day, everything is fine. The next day, it’s strange or exhausting. A few days later, it’s fine. (On the lower energy, negative patterns usually come to light. On the high energy days, we experience hope and happiness. In addition to learning about energetic patterns, we learn to conserve our own energy and observe how we use it in the flow of life. (Balance is an important part of the new paradigm.)
  2. With more light, everyone becomes more intuitive, gaining greater awareness of other people’s underlying thoughts and feelings. Eventually, vibrations will speak more loudly than words. The true feelings and actions of others will become apparent.
  3. Our collective energy is making changes in the world. Many send light and support on a regular basis to others. For those who can “see”, the light level is growing. We are also learning to vibrate above mass consciousness and lower group emotions. This trend will continue as we develop or connection with the inner self.
  4. It’s easier to send energy to others. Intuitive or psychic energy travels at a faster rate. It requires fewer “sends” and one or two clear visualizations can alter the pattern of a situation by lifting consciousness.
  5. The rules constantly change. There are a few constants such as working with the heart, returning to love, working with boundaries, and speaking our truth. Otherwise, energy responds to different rules, requiring constant experimentation for those who heal and send light.
  6. The quest for the inner self is the most fascinating mystery in our existence. Many people search for it in hope of answers. Awakening brings an incredible wave of love and understanding. True manifestation takes place through gamma waves, a state of super drive involving all portions of the brain. Gamma waves may only come through transmission from others and/or deeper levels of awakening and inner work.
  7. When we lift our consciousness and work with others, we connect with the Field in an entirely, different way. It amplifies our ability to pull in energy from many, new directions–and to apply it in new ways.

Seeking Light

news_global

 

As the world shifts and changes, it’s wise to seek love and light. It’s also helpful to learn small, simple techniques that can raise our consciousness. By applying techniques and focusing our consciousness in a different (higher) direction, we progress more quickly on our path.

  • When we focus on light, the universe responds. When we contemplate light, we receive its support. When we desire awakening, the universe leads us into many experiences in the invisible world such as synchronicity, esoteric teachings, and subtle answers, which provide direction in life.
  • Universal direction comes when we connect with our soul. It may come from meditation, nature, animals, personal love, or creativity. If we recognize the “expansion”, we can create a great deal of good from this place—particularly with visualization.
  • Life responds to our visualizations, placement of consciousness, and attention. When we give attention to negative states or unwanted aspects of life, they expand. Conversely, positive thoughts and visualizations raise our vibration, creating the opposite. (It’s helpful to think of difficult areas of life as energy and to send light to them. We can also decide to see the solution as opposed to focusing on the problem.)
  • Self-observation is a wonderful tool for creating change. By observing our personal patterns, we learn to change the inner dialog (what we say to ourselves), focus on a positive outcome or different response, and ask the universe for help at a pivotal moment. By asking the universe for help, we essentially ask for new perceptions and insights in blocked or difficult areas of life. If we are open, small answers appear and coalesce.
  • By noticing happiness, beauty, positive feelings, and goodness, we automatically bring more of them into our lives. The placement of our consciousness attracts much of we experience in life, which means it’s possible to alter the current of our life by attuning our consciousness to a higher point. (Life moves very differently from this point.)

Energy

Everything is ultimately energy. Energy takes on a thousand shapes and forms. It responds to us.  (Our energy field also responds to others and the overall global field.) Over time, we learn how to interact with the resonance of specific energies. We also learn how to collect it through meditation, yoga (Tai Chi, etc), and cultivation of calm, peaceful emotion.

  1. It’s important to know everything is composed of energy. It takes form by its rate of vibration. On a human level, energy can feel dense and heavy when it is not in alignment with the inner self—or when we travel through resistance. It tends to feel light and supportive when we are aligned.
  2. The energy of the planet shifts rhythmically, causing the experience of highs and lows. By aligning deeply with the inner self, we can stay centered as we travel through the energetic translation of a changing time. (The quality of energy, experienced at a particular point in time, may represent an influence of karmic patterns, geographical locations, mass consciousness, or other people.)
  3. Currently, we are working with the concept of balance. It’s important to stay balanced, centered, and grounded when the energy is continually shifting. It’s good to know our feelings and moods alter with the flow of the current of life. They don’t last forever and become less intense when we stay centered.
  4. It’s powerful to observe the flow of life. Through self-observation, we can note the places, people, and things that lift our energy field into a higher place. We can also note synchronicities and correct intuition. They give hints about our personal alignment. (What indicates your personal alignment?)
  5. If we are persistent and aligned with our spiritual quest, the energy in our personal field will eventually take on a higher form, reflecting abundance, alignment, health, and love

Using Your Inner Gifts

newsscene

 

If we continue to search for the soul, hold our vision, and walk in love and beauty, the landscape will change. We’re recalibrating and changing with the new energies. Sometimes, we need to remember and use our gifts to make the passage easier.

  1. Using visualization is one of our incredible gifts. When we visualize, we create. It requires time and repetition, but it works. When we combine visualization and the light of meditation, results come faster—and they resonate with our heart.
  2. We can remember our true identity. We are children of universe with powers of light and goodness. It may take time to develop those inherent powers, but they are there.
  3. We can speak to ourselves with kind words of encouragement. We can notice our efforts to move into the light and make small changes in life. In general, our words of encouragement should feel stronger than our critical, inner voice. It helps in accomplishing what our inner self wants.
  4. The placement of consciousness alters our feelings and thoughts. When we meditate, connect with the inner self, or engage in simple tasks, which give joy, we find our center. We move into a higher vibration. When we live in at a higher frequency, life often alters its flow.
  5. We have the power to send light. Simply go within and send light (and color) to anyone or any situation. For example, send light to a difficulty as opposed to thinking negative thoughts. Send light to your day, friends, and animals.
  6. We can ask the universe for a higher level energy level and more inner connection. If we keep asking, the universe responds. Sometimes, it’s easier than doing it for the self.
  7. We can project a positive feeling and outcome into the future. It doesn’t always work because we are learning a lesson and/or rewriting a belief. But it will always work with a few things, which encourages our efforts for the future as we move into mastery.
  8. We can review memories of joyful times, moments of deep connection, and periods of time when we stepped into our power. We can also imagine tapping into inner power and using it more effectively. (Consciousness follows the “wand” of the mind.)
  9. At least once or twice each day, we can meditate on the power and feeling of love. It is one of the most powerful forces in the universe, and it changes everything—if we let enough of it into our heart space.

Creating More Peace

news_mandala

Here’s a brief meditation on creating peace. Feel free to share. For those of you who prefer to read, here’s my latest article on peace from Spirit of Maat ezine (spiritofmaat.com)

 

 

Creating More Peace

Barbara Marciniak said, “You must learn to end the wars in your world by ending them in your mind.”  It feels logical to proceed by embracing peace within our mind and heart. Thought and emotion are known to impact the energetic field, and they are measurable in quantum science. (Everyone has been affected positively and negatively by another person’s emotions or thoughts.)

Peace is a state of mind, which occurs within the stillness of the inner self. It is a higher frequency—a set of vibrations emitted by the inner self.  In general, it is accompanied by a set of feelings, sensations, and a specific visual. When we connect with the inner self, there is an absence of conflicting thought. It is the state associated with stillness—an alignment with the heart.

In this space of connection, we encounter universal concepts such as peace, love, harmony, and joy. In general, the concepts are similar for everyone, but we color them with individual sensations and visualizations. From a place of stillness, it is possible to project a personal vision of peace into the world around us.

In alchemy, it’s said that every particle of matter is composed of light. Matter responds to higher frequencies and changes its shape. (This is seen in cymatics as well as Masaru Emoto’s work with water.) At any rate, mind over matter has been demonstrated many times.

Harmonious vibrations—which are free from duality—can affect physical matter. These vibrations could be described as higher frequencies, which are generated and received by people who are capable of perceiving and projecting them. When a “higher” visualization or feeling is received and repeated throughout many energy field, it is naturally amplified. When many of us focus on our personal sensation of peace repeatedly, it eventually affects the overall energy—as well as the conceivable future.

Mahatma Ghandi thought a concept or movement was much more powerful when it promoted what it stood for rather than fighting against what it opposed. It is a non-dualistic view, based on a simple focus on a higher concept. (When we are connected to our inner self, there is no duality—only wholeness, which provides sensations, which flow from this place of being. By projecting those thoughts and feelings strongly, we affect the matter or physical world around us.)

Coming from a place of wholeness does not mean closing our eyes to the darkness in the world. But it does involve limiting judgement and refraining from deep discussions about wrongness on earth. That’s because negative people and places thrive on negative energy. It’s the best way of creating more of what we don’t want.

The Age of Aquarius focuses on group endeavors, collective consciousness, higher thought, and the quantum field. Higher thought comes when the mind is connected with the heart. It’s easy to identify those thoughts because they are clear, align with universal concepts, and often bring a feeling of softness and relief. More importantly, it’s possible to project those thoughts to others and to the world-at-large. It’s how the quantum field works.

Tips:

1)      Meditating on a personal feeling of peace is easier than seeing peace for the world. From place of connection, it is easily expanded and sent to others as well as geographical locations.

2)      When we identify a strong sensation of peace for ourselves, we automatically vibrate it outward. (Change begins within personal world.)

3)      It’s helpful to choose a color, symbol, or identify a specific energy as peace. The soul often reads energy in symbols. It can be sent to others.

4)      Spend 5 or 10 minutes each day in meditation. In this place, there is no movement between polarities. There is only love and peace. Everyone can contribute to the effort in this way.

5)      Avoid television, violence, and lower vibrations. Try to keep discussions focused on the positive and good changes within the world. (When something causes a strong upset or emotion, try Ho’oponopono or seeing the opposite of the situation.)

6)      Work on eliminating personal judgement, particularly of friends, co-workers, and loved ones. It’s better to see the “good” in them and accept their place of being. And it’s more positive to work on personal peace. (Judgement causes movement between the higher and lower self.)

7)      Create a personal vision of peace in the future and dwell on it occasionally.

8)      With all metaphysical activity, we have to operate partially on faith while believing in the universe and our power to bring about change.

Planetary Change: A Breath of Fresh Air

 

Before moving into the forecast, it’s important to know astrology is a useful tool, which attunes us to specific energies and indicates their length and duration. From another perspective, it is also possible to vibrate above a lower, difficult aspect of energy and transmute it into a higher form.

In this way, we work with our personality in this way by becoming more aware of our tendencies to specific energies and making adjustments accordingly. We also change by learning to tap into the inner self for spiritual qualities that alter our perceptions and “read” of a specific situation. We have free will as to the quality of our response to the flow of the energy.

On Sept 9, Jupiter, the bringer of expansion and good fortune moves into Libra. It’s literally like a breath of fresh air! Jupiter in Libra brings the influence of air (thought, communications) in a balanced sense. The placement is positive with an emphasis on beauty, peace, and harmony. Jupiter in Libra brings a lighter energy, which is uplifting. (NOTE: Sept 9 is an auspicious day because all of the digits add up to 9, the culmination of energy before taking on physical form. Plan to use part of this day for meditation on positive desires.)

Venus (feminine, beauty, art, material possessions) joins Jupiter are both in Libra, making life may look or feel especially beautiful. In the bigger picture, Jupiter in Libra leads us into peaceful feelings, balance between opposing factions, and gives the vision of a bigger, better world—which is needed at this time. It also benefits relationships, art, and harmonious change.

In the meanwhile, Sun (outer life) and Mercury retrograde (communication, travel, the mind) are in Virgo, urging our attention on communication, detail, and precision—those practical things, which comprise a big part of material life. Virgo is an earth sign, and it urges focus on material change such as organization and our relationship with the physical world. It’s definitely a good time to look at exercise, diet, nutrition, and physical change.

Sun and Mercury trine Pluto (subconscious, underworld, transformation.) Sun is life and light; Mercury is the higher mind and communications. A trine is harmonious, but Pluto tends to create transformation through profound realizations and/or a state of surrender. Often, we drop a part of the self (or life) to find a higher truth.  Pluto can also help in finding our “inner” power in situations that made us feel powerless in the past. (Pluto often brings a big “reveal”.)

Mars (masculine energy, action) and Saturn (time, karma) remain in Sagittarius, urging discipline with our spiritual quest as well as action in the material world. Mars trines Uranus, which can  bestow interesting, unusual ideas. Mars also squares Saturn, and this aspect can help with structure but can emphasize unhappy patterns or unkind words.

Saturn (time, limitation) and Neptune (dreams, the mystical) are square, meaning we may feel confusion about particular issues in life. It’s difficult to receive a clear read whenever we lack clarity. For example, we might meditate to get an answer, but we receive 3 or 4 conflicting answers or ideas. The aspect is currently direct, but the planets will move apart in a week or two, and the answers will become clearer and more distinct.

Overall, we’re moving through another layer of change, transformation, and inner realization. Venus and Jupiter are beneficent planets, which can help in finding peaceful balance in life—and a more positive attitude. By communicating through our hearts, we often rise above the confusing vibrations of Mercury in retrograde. It’s a fine time for more awakening and moving more into cosmic love.
