Creating Our Reality

Manifestation is important because it teaches about how we perceive and live life. When we focus on a heart felt desire, we invoke the universe and the inner self.

  1. Everyone is already manifesting the material of their consciousness  through their experience of “reality.” We are limited by our perceptions and beliefs about life as well as the people in our lives; however, it’s possible to transcend those limits and create big, happy visions. Basically, this involves awakening and rewriting our inner script of beliefs, thoughts, and emotions. When we rewrite our perception of reality, it changes.
  2. Everyone wants financial prosperity, loving relationships, a healthy body, and a deep spiritual connection that provides accurate answers. Meditation and visualization can lead us to the right steps, and the practice completes much of the work on the invisible plane. (In other words, an occurrence or dream takes place much more quickly. We find the right job quickly instead of applying for ten. We visualize meeting the right people, and they appear.)
  3. Action is more effective when accompanied by meditation and visualization. It also requires less effort. Athletes and millionaires use these techniques of visualizing their desired reality in detail. The alteration in overall energy is even more profound when the visualization is prompted by a desire for connection with the inner self. Both practices create results, but universal connection alters everything in our lives.
  4. We meet our resistance within our self. We discover an opposite self, who doesn’t want the manifestation, takes steps in the opposite way, and wants to stay the same. We rewrite the “program” or pattern through visualization, observation, and learning to think and feel new thoughts and emotions. (We also learn to change our personal identity from the person who can’t to one who can.)
  5. Life becomes more exciting through these discoveries. As we learn to change lower patterns into patterns of success, we become enthusiastic about life. We naturally make small adjustments such as altering traffic, wishing good things for others, or seeing more beauty in life. (This changes our world—and the world around us.)
  6. Our vision of our reality and the world changes. We begin to understand how our ‘reality” responds to our thoughts and emotions. We also learn how to change our perception of life because we understand the seeing the “goodness” is part of what brings it into our lives.
  7. We naturally live on a higher vibration as a result of participating in manifestation. We begin to see problems as areas of life, which require a higher frequency, meditation, or inspired action. We also begin to “know” that other people are doing the same thing. It’s how we meet our True Self through meditation–and connect with others who align with the universe in the same beautiful way. (At this point, it is part of the collective Aquarian awakening when many people transform the world through their individual effort.)

Planetary Change: November New Moon

 

Through the beautiful weather of late fall when trees are loud in color—yet, flowers continue to bloom—the New Moon appears on Sunday, November 15 at 12:05 am.

The New Moon is quieter than the Full Moon when energies are at their height and intensity. This moon phase moves our consciousness into the void, the place between worlds where we can contemplate life and focus our energies for the next cycle. This month’s moon follows Friday the 13th, a day that was once sacred to the goddess, adding to the depth and stillness associated with this phase. (Friday is ruled by Venus, and thirteen represents the void that follows the cycle of the completion indicated by the number 12.)

It’s a feminine moon with eight planets in earth and water, and the forecast brings a slight lift in the current energies, which can often feel heavy and dense. Aspects with Sun, Moon, Jupiter, and Neptune provide a positive boost of energy. (We’re in the last phases of 2020’s heavy and often difficult energy.)

Sun (life), Moon (emotion), and Mercury (communication) in Scorpio intensify deep emotions and increase intuition.  Aspects with the Sun and Moon lighten the chart, adding optimism, a gentle flow of peace, and the opportunity for self-expression through art and other media.

Sun and Moon trine Neptune, the planet of illusion and mysticism, which heightens creativity and our ability to step into the unseen world. Sensitivity and emotions are increased. Dreams are particularly important and may reveal spiritual and/or conscious themes

Sun sextile Jupiter (expansion) boosts confidence and brings feelings of happiness and optimism. Sun sextile Moon sextile Jupiter increases positive feelings, clears the mind, and gives alignment with positive side of life. Uranus heightens curiosity, unusual encounters, and creativity. (It also causes difficulty with routine.)  Moon sextile Uranus brings unusual encounters, changeable moods, and increased intuition.

Mercury (communications) in Scorpio adds to the overall intensity and gives depth to emotion. However, thoughts tend to lack clarity as Mercury squares (tension) Saturn (limitation), which may cause tension when we oscillate between past memories and the desire to move ahead with a new thoughts and aspirations. There’s also confusion between Mercury (personal mind) and Uranus (the higher mind); their opposition may make it difficult to incorporate larger, universal thoughts into the present moment.

Mars is direct—at last—after 2 ½ months of retrograde, which include heavy feelings and stifled emotions. Frustration, anger, and lack of motivation will slowly lift in the next few weeks, and overall energy will increase. Mars remains square Jupiter (expansion) and Pluto (subconscious, transmutation). Both aspects increase drive for success and desire for achievement, but they are often viewed from the ego’s perspective—as opposed to the good of the “all”. Fortunately, this tendency is softened by Mars in direct position.

Venus (love, relationships) is in Libra, a sign ruling beauty and balance. Venus forms contradictory angles and aspects for next week or so. Venus, opposes Mars (action, energy) in Aries.  The aspect intensifies emotions associated with relationships, heightens passion, and can spark anger/frustration. Venus square Jupiter increases the desire for excess, which is reflected in overspending, overeating, and self- Venus square Saturn causes tiredness and a desire to retreat and rest. Venus square Pluto increases tension and intensity in relationships, particularly with the issue of power.

Jupiter (expansion) conjunct Saturn (limitation) expands opportunities and desire for growth. Saturn creates barriers for growth, but Jupiter helps with overcoming them. Actually, it’s a time when dissatisfaction can become positive—if we decide to change. Jupiter sextile Neptune increases harmony and good fortune. Opportunities often appear under this aspect.

Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto continue to affect our lives through COVID, isolation, and the difficulty of the structures in the outer world. Fortunately, it begins to change in January 2021. The energy lingers for some time, but it begins to fade as we move into another cycle of time and energy.

Tips

  • A slight, positive shift in energy begins with the New Moon. Aspects with Sun and Moon encourage creativity, prayer, and meditation. Sun/Moon trine Neptune places emphasis on dreams, signs, and messages from the unseen world. Intuition is expanded through aspects with Uranus.
  • Mercury (thought, communications) is affected by its placement in Scorpio, making it difficult to separate thoughts and emotions. Mercury opposes Uranus (sudden change, quantum field), meaning we travel between the clear thoughts of the higher mind and the static of the lower mind.
  • Mars (energy, assertion) is direct, slowly clearing the frustrated feelings of the past few months. Also, our physical energy will increase substantially in the next few weeks. Mars squares Jupiter (expansion) and Pluto (underworld, collective consciousness), which can increase the desire to succeed and/or push forward with goals.
  • Venus (feminine, relationships) forms many different aspects in this chart ranging from overly indulgent to intense emotion to the desire to escape from life. (I imagine we’ll experience the many influences over the next week or so.)
  • Jupiter (expansion) conjuncts Saturn (limitation, karma). Although Saturn is associated with karma, it can also act as the teacher. It creates hurdles and blocks, which build skills that are necessary for success. Jupiter enlarges these skills, giving optimism and drive to create a new and better life.

Planetary Change: Halloween’s Blue Moon

 

When the veil opens on Halloween, the Full Blue Moon appears. Full Moons are intense, and it’s particularly true in this case.  The chart presents odd aspects such as Sun (life) in opposition to Uranus (sudden change, quantum field) and Moon (emotions) conjunct Uranus. Uranus can act as a wild card, causing emotions and thoughts to suddenly change. Conversely, it can give brilliance and sudden insights into universal truths. It’s a strange forecast with energy moving in many directions, which is fitting for Halloween.

The Full Moon focuses on feminine energy with Sun in Scorpio, a water sign, and Moon in Taurus, an earth sign.  Water and earth signs are feminine and receptive, and they urge acknowledging emotion, finding understanding of internal states, and creating change in the physical world. Sun in Scorpio heightens intensity, intuition, and emotion. Moon in Taurus, an earth sign, is stabilizing and grounding.

Sun (life) in opposition to Uranus (sudden change, quantum field) can cause nervousness, tension, or irritation. It can also bring about sudden reactions and impulsiveness. Moon (emotion) conjuncts (close to) Uranus adds electrical energy and volatile emotions. With Moon and Uranus placed in Taurus, an earth sign, it’s possible to turn to grounding, exercise, and meditation to calm nervous energy and focus emotion.

Sun trines Neptune (mysticism, illusion), and it’s a beautiful placement, which can bring quiet contemplation and deeper understanding of the spiritual world. It can also quiet emotion and increase feelings of peacefulness. It opens the soul to receive intimations from the Divine.

Part of energetic work involves changing our perception when we feel a particular planetary or karmic influence. We accomplish this by moving into a higher level of life (and light.) For many of us, the full moon awakens subtle energies, which encourages our inner aspirations. The trick is to continue embracing them—regardless of the sensations of life.

Mercury (communications, electronics) remains retrograde until November 3, and it will likely affect the election. It’s difficult to work with electronics and find clarity when Mercury is indirect. Additionally, Mercury squares Jupiter (expansion), Saturn (karma, limitation) and Pluto (subconscious, transformation). Mercury square (tension) Jupiter can bring optimism and the ability for long-term planning. It can also heighten restlessness and impracticality. Mercury square Saturn relates to increases negative feelings of isolation and worry. Mercury square Pluto stimulates deep thinking and the desire to realize greater truth.

Venus (feminine, love, relationships) is beautifully placed in Libra, an air sign. Venus in Libra heightens our appreciation for beauty and art; it increases the ability to create harmonious relationships. Venus trines (harmonious) Saturn (limitation, karma), bringing stability, balance, and stability to love relationships. (This is a wonderful aspect for this particular chart!)

Mars in Aries continues in its retrograde until November 13. In the last weeks of Mars retrograde, our physical energy tends to decline. Mars retrograde in Aries pulls on our physical energy, and it may create layers of repressed anger and frustration. Mars squares Jupiter (expansion), Saturn (limitation), and Pluto (subconscious, transformation). Mars square Jupiter sometimes acts as a motivating force, pushing plans to action. Mars square Saturn brings frustration and inhibition. Mars square Pluto can give an intense desire to overcome limitations and increased drive. (On the level of collective consciousness, it can cause frustration, violence, or ruthlessness.)

The squares between Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto, which influence the current world structure and transition, remain in place as we move through a profound series of changes, which can lead to positive or negative transformation on the collective level.

Summary

Many aspects are found in the chart, which can cause tiredness, agitation, or nervousness, through the first week of November. However, there are also aspects that aid in seeing beauty, grounding energy, and finding the inner self. It’s best to pull into meditation, stillness, and higher frequencies whenever possible. It’s how we send light and positive change to the current chaos while maintaining our center and continuing with spiritual growth. (It also protects us from the outer energies of the world.)

Tips

  1. It’s a feminine chart with many signs in water and earth, which can help with grounding and inner flow, but more challenging aspects dictate a considerable effort with flow and focus of consciousness.
  2. Many aspects cause conflicting and sudden emotion. When we feel emotional, realize it’s temporary. Avoid arguments and talk later when the energy is calmer.
  3. Mercury (communications) in retrograde confuses the mind, electronics, and travel. The Sun’s opposition with Uranus heightens it. On the positive, there’s only another week of the retrograde.
  4. Sun (life) trine Neptune (mysticism) is a lovely, supportive influence that can connect us to divine forces and insights. Venus (love, relationships) is in Libra, accentuating the beauty in life, and Venus’s trine with Saturn stabilizes relationships.
  5. Mars retrograde in Aries can bring tiredness, agitation, and anger. It can help in pushing through blocks and completing projects.
  6. It’s helpful to know the aspects and their influences are only temporary, and many feelings and emotions are transitory.

Messages from the Wolves

 

The wolves speak clearly when the moon is full, and they come to commune with us during this time.

Courage is necessary in a time of change. In the deep past, we lived through flood, fire, ice, and earth changes. We lived through the domestication of the earth and the cutting of forests, the polluting of water, and the change of mankind. Nevertheless, we persisted as you will.

There are many methods of moving through change. The first method comes with the focus of courage, the power of intent, and the strength of being. It begins with focus and the inner knowing that you are powerful enough to create the life you want.

Creating the life that you want can take time, but it also takes persistence and belief in the motion of the universe. The universe responds to persistence, the energies of nature, and the light in your heart. You probably have all of these qualities if you are reading this; however, you may have forgotten how to find them.

We have not forgotten, and we remind that you are much stronger and more powerful than you recall. Part of the trick is opening the mind to new ideas and thoughts, opening the heart to hear the universe, and allowing all of life to flow through you.

Fear closes these doors, thus limiting your perception and opening your mind to negative thoughts, which will only manifest if you focus on them. But LOVE opens the door—love for nature, love for yourself, and love for this great opportunity to live and to create.

We remember you when you were like gods—capable of creation, open to creating change, and loving every magical moment of your existence. We recommend your return to this place of being.

In the meanwhile, we will talk about intent. Intent is like a door to an open world that responds when your thoughts and heart are true. Intent is a door that requires belief in the (true) self, and it is not for the weak of heart. It is important to intend change with all of your heart.

Exercise

During our times of difficulty, we asked to see a path through the travails, and we followed that direction. You can find it, too, by projecting your direction like a line of white line. See the white line of light in your near future. Imagine following it day by day.

Each time, you lose your way, ask to see the line of white light that connects to you. Take a step (whatever it is) and follow it by believing in it. The line of white light will keep you in alignment with the path of the universe, it protects and enlightens you, and it helps you find your way.

This is how you step into your destiny and find your gifts. See yourself as person who is willing to open to a new you, a new way of seeing life. Beneath the chaos, new gifts and magic lie waiting.

You could imagine walking on the white line of spirit energy, and you pick up a magic stone or crystal or flower. The magical gifts open your powers, bringing new magic into your life. Walking this path requires courage. It means staying on the straight line, which holds the center of life, without faltering or doubting, and constantly making small improvements to become who you truly are.

You must move into the consciousness that is truly what you want to do. You are not affected by the outer world, but you listen and follow your inner self. There is nothing that is more correct than this. You must also trust that it is the right path—and allow your intuition to lead you. There is no turning back. You must either embrace the chaos or the inner self. The path is splitting quickly, and you must make a choice. Do you create light or lean on others?

It is not easy to become magical because your world in the past centuries has not allowed it. Also, the planet has been dense, but it is changing. There is resistance that you must push against, and it may seem that it will not work. However, it will work when you begin to gain the inner world, the world of magical creation—for it gives great alignment with the forces of nature and the flow of the world—as well as waves of light.

It takes tremendous focus. All during the day, you must return to the way of finding the path, the line of light, and listen to the heart that speaks the truth. But the time is coming when it will be easy for those who follow it NOW.

In your heart, you know this is what you want. The gifts of the work are what all seekers long for on the spiritual path. They include, courage, love, determination, and focus. It is the only true way of surmounting the mountain.

Desires, which come with manifestation, must be about the heart, helping others, developing your inner self in the physical world, and learning to overcome old perceptions that are not real. Old perceptions are mistakes in the energy field—a way of doing things and feeling inside that is not true. A true desire pushes consciousness past this place into a realm where opportunities and strength appear. Wherever you are lost or waylaid, it relates to living life in a way that no longer aligns with you.

True manifestation aligns you with universal law, love, and light. This placement of alignment allows the universe to flood you with its strength.

Dream big dreams. Play in the woods, and watch the sun rise. Listen to the birds and meditate on the beauty of your heart and desires.

We continue to sing our songs at night that remind you of your soul and quest. We will sing our night songs on the full moon and speak to your heart.

More Abundance

 

Everyone wants more abundance because it implies an infinite connection with the “good” aspects of the universe. For those who have ample abundance, there are dreams of love, better health, or a new way of life. Ultimately, it’s the same vision but slightly different.

Abundance is a frequency. It’s much like tapping into a radio station, a particular band of energy. As with the radio, you have to know the “number” or feeling of the frequency to locate it. You also have to search for it and tune into it. We identify the right frequency by listening to the “sound” for a moment or two.

Tapping into the right frequency for abundance involves positive thought, imagery, and identifying positive desires. (It’s more effective to desire happiness and relief than to focus on bills or lack.)  Feeling abundance means imagining prosperity, seeing ample income for bills, and creating a vision of life without financial worries. Focus on the goodness you want to experience.

Abundance comes in beautiful waves. Keep pulling in the waves. (All positive, material states require constant vigilance and practice because of duality. Everything ascends and descends. There are spaces between the waves.)

With manifestation, change often comes in “levels.” Your income or life style may improve, but you may feel the desire for increased expansion. Give gratitude and thanks for small changes while visualizing larger improvements.

Initially – as with all visualization – work is required. You literally impose a higher vibration (prosperity) onto a lower vibration (need and lack.) If you stay with the work, abundance will flow into your life. In time, the work becomes easier and requires less focus. (This is true of all spiritual work.)

Know you have the “power.” If you are spiritually connected, you definitely have the power. It may take time to learn how to use it or find the right visualization, but it’s doable. Believe in you and call on the universe often. (Stay open to change and seeing life differently.)

Use your prosperity to help others. Use the same visualization techniques to see affluence for others (without their knowledge.) When you spend correctly and lovingly, you encourage the flow of prosperity throughout the world. Choose to become the person who creates abundance for yourself and the world.

Here are a few tips.

  • The universe shares abundance in waves. Tapping into the wave can mean leaving behind beliefs such as not feel deserving and/or believing good people are limited to a particular income The beliefs are diverse, but you can connect into the frequency of prosperity through your inner consciousness.
  • Visualization is an important tool. It’s important to make a practice of seeing what you want as opposed to reflecting negatively on your experience. For example, see the desired business or money flowing into your life as opposed to not having the desired amount. Change the way you view the flow of money events in your life. (Money always comes after I spend correctly. Money flows in at a tremendous rate when I pay my bills.)
  • Ultimately, prosperity is energy like anything else. Anything can be obtained through a wave-length—good or bad. If you use the energy to help yourself, improve your life, and share with others, it’s positive energy. (You eliminate fear while helping others to create the same vibration.)
  • It requires practice and action. If you truly want a big change, then 15-20 minutes of daily visualization is not much work. You may also need to work physically as in finding a job or more work. It’s easier to create money when you have it.
  • Express gratitude while asking for more. Notice everything that is wonderful in your life but expand it as well.

New Moon Forecast: Intense Weather

 

 

The New Moon appears on Friday, October 16 at 3:31 pm. The New Moon brings a brief period of quiet and stillness. In the darkness, the stars sing in the velvet night. During the day, the natural world is particularly beautiful with Sun and Moon in Libra, an air sign ruled by Venus.  Libra brings balance, harmony, creativity, and an emphasis on relationships.

This chart brings lovely influences, which can carry us through the more challenging ones. Venus (love, beauty) forms a trine with Jupiter (expansion) and Uranus (sudden change, quantum field.) The message is direct. It’s possible to align with the heart and move into unconditional love, which leads to expansion and good fortune (Jupiter). In this place of expansion, we can attune to the higher messages of the quantum field. (The quantum field is the place of angels and miracles where we receive visions of what life can become—which is often distinctly different from the laws of physicality. It’s where our souls get a boost from universal energies.)

Venus (love, beauty, relationships) in Virgo, an earth sign ruling hygiene, healing, and order, trines Jupiter (expansion), Saturn (limitation, karma), Uranus (sudden change) and Pluto (transformation). The large number of trines suggest potential answers are found in reflecting on love and using our creative energy to focus on beauty, expression, and insights that come from the heart. Venus opposes Neptune (mysticism, illusion), which may reveal illusions about love and life.

On October 17, the Sun and the star, Arcturus, move into their annual alignment. It’s said that we receive new energies of light and insights to move beyond frustration and doubt into greater love and understanding. Again, we have to open to it as light codes initially feel overwhelming, but it’s how we evolve.

Light codes are waves of energy, which enhance Intuition and perception; they also open our minds to universal truth.  It takes time to accurately interpret new information, so meditate on insights and consider the time and reflection needed for adequate assimilation.

Challenging Aspects

Many aspects intensify the forecast for the next 3 weeks. On another level, energy is energy. It’s more about what we do with it than how it feels.

Sun and Moon square (tension) Mars (energy), Jupiter (expansion), Saturn (limitation, karma) and Pluto (underworld, transformation). The planets form T-square that creates pressure, amplifying the feeling of limitation, which has occurred in 2020. On the positive, we can rewrite the limitations on life (Sun), moon (emotions) from Mars and the other planets. We can use our time and energy (Mars) to expand practices such as meditation, exercise, and creativity. We can find strength and discipline in limitation (Saturn) and transform our lives (Pluto).

Mercury (communications) is retrograde until November 3, which slows movement, confuses time and thought, and affects electronics. Mercury in Scorpio reveals underlying truths, but they may be difficult to decipher until Mercury moves direct. Mercury opposes Uranus (sudden change, quantum field), and it can lead us to greater truths or confusing reads on the surface of current reality. Mercury trines (harmonious) Neptune (illusion/mysticism, which opens our consciousness to messages from the Divine.

Mars (overall energy, action) is also retrograde in Aries, which can bring the desire to act without the energy to do so—or a very strong desire, which is aligned with the ego and not the inner self. It can feel frustrating and upsetting, or it can reveal what we truly want in life. Mars squares Jupiter (expansion), Saturn (limitation), and Pluto (underworld, transformation). The aspect brings tension, a desire to act, tension, and agitation. It also accelerates the desire and need for action and change.

Jupiter (expansion) in Capricorn trines Uranus (sudden change, quantum field), and it helps in having strength to move through uncertainty. The aspect increases creative genius, new solutions, and unconventional answers.

Jupiter (expansion), Saturn (limitation), and Pluto (underworld, transformation) remain in conjunction, and the aspects, which began in early 2020, continue through this placement. On the positive, Pluto takes us down deep to find resources and unknown aspects of the self and life for personal transformation.

Tips

  • It is a challenging chart with aspects that can cause tension, emotional responses, or anxiety. However, there are also beautiful and encouraging aspects with Venus, which open the heart and lift our spirit.
  • Mercury (communication) is retrograde. Stay with current plans, review thoughts and feelings, and rest when possible.
  • Mars in retrograde can create the build-up of tension and a desire to act quickly or impulsively. Stay on track and move evenly through life.
  • Jupiter’s trine with Uranus can help in finding new solutions to problems and gives strength.
  • There are aspects in the chart, which will help in finding calm and focus, but it takes work to create results. Meditate, visualize, and focus whenever possible.

Sabian Symbols, based on the work of Lynda Hill

Sabian symbols depict the energy of a sign and its degree.

Sun and Moon are on Libra 24, “A Third Wing on the Left Side of a Butterfly” indicates imbalance and awkwardness in our personal lives and emotions. Certainly, everyone is thrown a bit off balance in the current waves of life.

Mercury is placed on Scorpio 12, “A Brilliant Assembly of Dignitaries at an Official Embassy Ball”. The symbol can (accurately) point to political planning, ethics and manners, and diplomatic standoffs.

Venus sits on Virgo 17, “A Volcanic Eruption Bringing Dust Clouds, Flowing Lava, and Earth Rumblings”. It could refer the build-up of emotional energy over many months—or life changing events. It indicates a need for release of emotion and expression of anger.

Mars is on Aries 21, “A Boxer Entering the Ring”. With Mars in retrograde, the symbol may refer to our need to make changes, express self-assertion, or determination. It’s also about using power in a positive sense for personal expression as opposed to aggression.

Jupiter sits on Capricorn 20, “A Hidden Choir Singing During a Religious Service”. It’s a depiction of spiritual music and energy, which uplifts the congregation or listeners. It can refer to the universal voice that is unseen but speaks to the soul.

Planetary Change: Full Harvest Moon

 

As fall comes with the turn of the season, we move into another time of energetic change. The Full Harvest Moon on October 1 brings big waves of energy, which require proper navigation. It’s important to find direction through the inner self, which acts as the North Star, and proceed in the direction of its light and beauty. (Many aspects in the chart will help with the journey—although it is not an easy one.)

Sun is placed in Libra, an air sign, and Moon is in Aries, a fire sign. Sun in Libra is about balance, harmony, cooperation, and relationships. Relationships can vary from partners, friends, the inner self, and our view of life. It also rules commitments, and the chart focuses on commitment to the self and the aspects of life, which are important to our growth. Moon in Aries increases impulsiveness, creativity, and conflict. (Conflict is less likely if we take inspired action.)

Sun (life) squares Jupiter (expansion, growth). This aspect brings tension between our desires and reality. It heightens the need to push, achieve, and accomplish, but it clouds the issue with demands from the ego when inner growth is the true issue. Inner growth requires dedication, persistence, and practice as well as clarity of purpose. It’s actually an opportunity to see how our beliefs about success, the self, and life can interfere with the pursuit of the dreams of our heart. (For example, we can think about the blocks or patterns that appear in the areas of life that are not working well. What are the thoughts and feelings, which accompany the blocks? Are there new actions, emotions, or insights, which might be useful?)

Moon (emotions/feelings) squares (tension) Jupiter (expansion, growth). The square tends to exaggerate emotions, sensitivity, and impulses—as well as the desire to manifest. However, emotions can act as a distraction by overpowering the desire to work and remain focused. They can color and distort the experience of life through overwhelm or self-indulgence, which leads away from the desire to express inner gifts and talents through work.  Self-discipline is needed to move through this influence.

Mercury (communications, mind) is placed in Scorpio, a passionate water sign that sees beneath the surface. Mercury in Scorpio is intense and emotional, and this can cause difficulty with receiving a clear read. Conversely, it can also reveal deeper truths behind the workings of the mind. Mercury squares (tension) Saturn (limitation, karma), and it tends to give focus to negative thinking, shyness, and reserve, but it’s possible to master the energy by working through the blocks or becoming conscious of them—at least.

Mercury is in opposition to Uranus (sudden change, quantum field), which creates a wave of nervous energy, the desire to perform several tasks at once, and sudden, abrupt upsets. Mercury rules communications, and there is a greater chance of incorrect reporting, and opinions are easily misunderstood. A frantic/hurried feeling can accompany the aspect.

NOTE: Mercury in Scorpio moves into the final retrograde for 2020 on October 13. It’s a time to retreat within, review the changes in the world for 2020, and find personal truths about life. The retrograde is likely to feel intense as it affects emotion—and Mars will be retrograde in Aries.

Mars (overall energy, passion, male) is retrograde in Aries, the strong sign of the warrior. Mars can bestow feelings of frustration, or it can give the power to move through problems and find solutions. (We use the energies in move ahead with dreams and projects—or we can feel overwhelmed by the strange flow of energy.) Mars makes two squares, which influence and enhance the feeling of the chart.

Venus (love, partnerships, beauty) is in Virgo, an earth sign.  When placed in Virgo, Venus can help with health rituals, exercise, and diet. Venus trines (harmonious) Mars, which supplies balance and understanding between yin/yang aspects in life and male/female relationships.

With Mars retrograde, life does not appear to move in a straight line with clear direction. It’s similar to driving on a road around a mountain. Mars squares Jupiter (good fortune, expansion), which heightens creativity and the desire to take action—without adding the factor of logical thought. It expands enthusiasm and excessive emotions. Mars squares Saturn (limitation, karma) contributes feelings of limitation and restriction, particularly with current circumstances of life. It’s important to look at meaningful projects and progress—and move more deeply into current plans as opposed to projections.

Jupiter (expansion, good fortune) trine Uranus (sudden change, quantum field) is a blessing in this chart. The harmonious energy between the two planets opens our minds to a bigger picture, opening our psyche to greater possibilities. It helps with new ideas, moving through stagnation, and finding/creating brighter dreams for the future. Jupiter sextiles (positive) Neptune (illusion, mysticism), which can bring a feeling of optimism and connection with the Divine.

Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto remain conjunct in the same aspect, which brought about the current changes in energy and structure of the world. The aspect continues throughout the year.

Message from the Wolves: Aligning with Intention

 

Lately, the wolves are loud, and their presence comes into my life through coyotes who wander in my yard and visits with wolves that know my name. The wolves walk through my nightly dreams, which happens when my world and/or the outer world shifts.

We bring a message of intent, which a way of powerfully focusing the mind and spirit on a singular point. At this time, we suggest focusing on the spiritual path, the line that crosses into the spiritual world where life changes and takes a new path.

On this path, the old rules of linear existence no longer count. The spiritual world aligns with your thoughts, desires, and visualizations to create in a new way, which is impossible in your old world. (The old world is crumbling for those who move forward. It stays for those who do not want change.)

Beneath the surface of the earth, there are great reserves of energy that can align with your energy. They connect to the spirit world in places that connect both worlds. As your energy grows, you will find these spaces or imagine them in dreams for both are real.

At this moment, remember your intent and recall the power of your heart to attract what is real and eternal in both spiritual and material form. It is by practicing intent—the power of focus on one or two desires–that moves you into the space of creator, the dream of manifesting what is real to your soul.

Wolves use intent to pull in desires such as safe places to live, wider spaces, energies for the earth, and the power to sing our old songs that help to keep you and the earth alive. It is also how we project energy to you—the energies and magic of the old earth, the songs of who you once were in all of your power and glory, and the possibilities of what is to come.

We ask you to remember the old earth magic when the trees relayed your messages, people wrote poems to reflect the shapes of stars and trees, and your heart opened while you roamed free and wild and holy in another time. For those of you who know, many memories of lifetimes are awakening and converging as you recall your true nature.

Opening your gifts is part of finding this type of awakening; committing to your inner intention for a better, magical, and aligned life is another way of moving more deeply into the best possibilities of this time. When you want to live life in a new way, when you want to spend time contemplating your personal truth, and you want to meditate, visual, and focus on the heart’s desires, you walk on this new time.

Do not underestimate the power of the shift. As energies grow, thoughts are magnified, emotions are heightened, and desires grow stronger. Part of the key is learning which desires align with your true identity–the part of you which is whole and light and indivisible.

The earth is awakening and casting new light and energies into the planet. She works to get your attention with strange storms, earthquakes, and the appearance of animals. (We and other animals appear so you take note of specific energies.) With the earth and cosmos sending energies to you, everything within you – fear, love, hope, anxiety, dreams and wishes—expands. Only the “true” you can decipher the energies in the correct way.

Take note of nature as this is crucial with the upcoming changes. The earth protects those that she loves by sending small messages through the motion of the trees, the appearance of birds or animals, and the tone of the wind.

Begin by meditating outdoors and sharing your dreams and troubles with the earth—for she is the mother who holds the tools of healing. Sit quietly and focus your entire being on your intent. Make it important. You will know when the earth hears you for the sun will shine brightly as the trees move, and the world will become quiet although sounds continue. You will know when you have achieved it because it will seem more real than what you know or feel now.

By contemplating your gifts, you begin to open them as well as the vast treasures of learning and knowing from times before this one. You will know when you have opened them because there will be something to share, which benefits others. Real gifts bring the vibration of unconditional love—and the wisdom of knowing with whom to share.

For those of you who long to step beyond the veil and test your powers, we are with you. You are in our dreams and prayers.
