Working with Current Energies and Light

At the beginning of 2020, I knew we would travel through a collective experience. I’d hoped it would occur as an experience of higher frequencies, but it’s still possible to create this state. In several of my lowest moments, I have experienced transcendental light–and this is the current challenge.
My earlier posts referred to “Crossing the Bridge” as a new state of awareness and awakening. It continues to exist, and we inhabit it by extending our minds and emotions into moments of happiness, kindness, and appreciation for life. (It’s also possible to take better care of our bodies and the planet.)
Please take time to cultivate energy in any positive form and to avoid lower forms of energy that may travel through people, news, and events. Share the “positive” whenever possible. For example, China cut emissions by 100 million tons since January, thousands of undisturbed sea turtles in India gathered to lay eggs, and Norway voted for NO deforestation.

 

Specific Light Work with Current Energies

  • Surround yourself with white light. Ask the light to fill every particle of your body, every molecule, and the spaces between the molecules. Let the light exude from you, filling the room and extending for one quarter mile around you. Hold it there for a couple of minutes. It should immediately raise your vibration as well as pushing away the fear and upset of others. (Initially, I tried taking on the fear and lower energies of others, but I soon realized their feelings came from a habit of aligning with lower vibrations. It’s easier to raise your personal vibration, and others can make a choice to join in—or not.)
  • Waves of lower vibrations radiate from mass consciousness at regular intervals. The waves can feel like panic, nervous energy, or lethargy. They tend to occur mid-morning, mid-afternoon, and between 6-8 pm in my world—although the times may differ in your world. (As soon as they are identified as waves of mass consciousness, they dissipate. When you realize it’s not your energy, you no longer identify with it. The energy moves away to someone who is more susceptible.)
  • On the subject of waves, you will feel fear occasionally. Counter it by sending light to yourself and your loved ones. Affirm that you and everyone in your world is safe. Express gratitude for this wonderful outcome.
  • Focusing on the heart space centers the consciousness. Focus on pink light in the center of the chest. Breathe through this space.
  • Release your concept of this “reality” and plan for the next. Focus on true happiness and the path of the heart.

General Work

  • Find a new destination point. You can imagine and visualize a new reality in three to six months. Imagine experiencing happiness, health, and balance. (Manifestation asks for the continual expansion of our consciousness, which requires focus on a particular point. Do it with joy!) On a wider level, you can see the virus decrease, abundance for all, and a clean, healthy planet.
  • Find your calling. A calling comes from the inner self. If you don’t have a calling, meditate and listen. Eventually you’ll receive instructions to take a walk, phone a friend, or perform a task such as exercise, study, or positive support in some form. Use one or two hours wisely each day. Exercise, see the beauty of spring, and meditate. The soul provides energy when you listen to the inner self.
  • Express appreciation often. Marvel at all that goes well, and don’t forget the presence of leaves, the colors at sunset, moon rise, and the beauty of the self. Generosity is part of gratitude. (We know how it works.)
  • Make the most of the beautiful moments. The energy is lovely in the morning, and the stars are bright in the evening. It’s also helpful to take a walk and breathe in the (newly) clean air. At this point, nature is particularly pretty and very happy. Don’t miss it!
  • Higher vibrations, which include awakening, abundance, enlightenment, happiness, health, and joy, are the best method of recycling the energy. Happiness and health are the opposite of fear and illness. Whenever possible, talk to a good friend, find your creativity, and notice the goodness of life.

Helping Others and the Planet

  • Look at a map. Ask where light is needed. Send it to the geographical location. Watch the area fill with the light and imagine universal light helping everyone in this space.
  • Imagine a world without the virus. Imagine a new way of living in harmony with one another and the earth. (The earth prefers a slower paced life with environmentally friendly world.)
  • Please don’t watch the news. It’s a very low vibration. Read the headlines and one or two articles. Leave the remainder for people who desire unhappiness.
  • It’s a transitional time. The entire planet is changing in a short period of time, which isn’t easy. Earth is resetting and moving into a new reality. You and I have to change, and the changes will probably appear as small intuitions, which lead to greater light and understanding. It’s not an easy phase, but it’s doable.
  • Rest, sleep, and reflect when possible. It requires large amounts of energy to change the course of personal and collective life. Also, brilliant ideas and practical solutions are more likely when you’re rested and relaxed.

Releasing Lower Vibrations & Moving into Higher Vibrations

 

Here’s the recording, which you can download.

https://instantteleseminar.com/Events/120810027

Please listen when you feel fear and/or lower emotions. When many of us move into higher vibrations, everything must change!

 

Here are a few tips.

  • Limit time spent listening to news. Check out information from other people before you believe it or share it with others.
  • Black obsidian, kyanite, and black onyx absorb negative vibrations. Carry a small stone.
  • Use violet light or white light for protection whenever you feel fear. Ask if it’s your fear or the fear of someone near you. (It’s usually someone else.)
  • Use your intuition to decide where to go. See yourself as protected at all times. See your family and friends as healthy and protected.
  • Drink water to wash away emotions from mass consciousness.
  • Meditate and pray daily. Go into the inner space of the heart.

Rise Above World Events

We’re currently beginning our work together as a collective on a global level. We’re only beginning to learn what to see and how to work with it.

  • Create your world through visualization and see it as beautiful. Notice how you are creating what you want or think you want.
  • Ask the universe to fill you with light. Radiate the light around you for several miles.
  • Remember that love and light vibrate on a higher frequency than problems, obstacles, illness, or stock market. Your life is working, and you love your life. You are protected by light, and you are moving into freedom, beauty, and love.

Praying for Others – From Amma

Chant:   Om Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu

New Moon Forecast, Another Shift

 

The New Moon appears on Tuesday, March 24 at 5:28 am. Sun and Moon are in the Aries, the sign of the ram. Aries marks the return of spring and the inherent possibilities associated with new beginnings. The fire sign denotes creativity, a strong will, and a fierceness with focus. On the negative, the sign can bring egocentric qualities and a scattered feeling In a moon chart, Aries brings creativity and rapidity along with a strong desire to begin a project and/or life in a new way.

As we continue to work with our collective experience of corona virus and other economic problems along with many environmental issues, the new moon chart hints at solutions.

The Sabian Symbols (a method of reading the aspects more deeply) gives broader indications. For example, the Sun and Moon sit on Aries, “A White Triangle with Golden Wings”. In metaphysics, the triangle is a symbol of harmony, white represents purity, and golden wings are help from heaven. By focusing on harmony within the self, we receive support from the unseen world. Jupiter (good fortune) is represented by “A Woman Entering the Convent”, which is an experience that may feel familiar in our current state of isolation.

Sun (life) and Moon (emotions) square North Node (spiritual direction for collective consciousness) in Cancer, the feminine water sign, which is nurturing and compassionate. (In other words, it’s important to continue with a slower pace and check for a compassionate outlook as opposed to flying to win or achieve.)

Sun and Moon conjunct Chiron (the wounded healer), which can amplify our awareness of our wounds and karma. It can also indicate the beginning of understanding the energy behind our group karma, which is a substantial part of any healing—as we can clear the karma when we identify and understand the obstacle. (Aspects with Chiron can bring back memories and old feelings associated with the past. Good memories align with the inner self. With difficult memories, we must understand the energy behind them if we hope to achieve positive change.)

Mercury (communications, mind) is placed in Pisces, a water sign which is intuitive as opposed to logical. It’s dreamy and unfocused, so don’t feel badly if you haven’t adjusted to your new home schedule. feels as opposed to thinking. In this placement, it’s dreamy, unorganized, and emotional. It causes difficulty with focus on routine tasks, interrupting thoughts and plans. Fortunately, Mercury trines (harmonious) Pluto (underworld, transformation) helps with the ability to discover secrets, solve mysteries, and find unexpected answers.

Venus is love and beauty, and she points to possible ways that lead out of the current dilemma. Placed in the earth sign of Taurus, Venus is about building beautiful forms in the material world, aligning with the earth, and seeing the loveliness of life in the present moment. Venus trines (harmonious) four planets, aligning our energy with her vibrations in several different forms.

Venus (love) in Taurus, gives connection with the earth and heightens the sense of physical love. Venus forms beautiful aspects, which could be very helpful, Venus trines Mars (male energy, action), giving harmony between the male/female aspect of the self and the sexes. Venus trines Jupiter (good fortune), heightening the presence of love and expanding its good. Venus trines Pluto (transmutation, underworld), giving the ability to transform relationships in new ways. It can help in finding and expressing the transformative quality of love in creative ways.

Venus (love) and Jupiter (good fortune) sextile Neptune (mysticism, illusion). With this aspect, we can see through the illusion of sickness and fear by moving into love and hope. Whenever Jupiter and Neptune align positively, there is always greater hope and possibility for goodness and growth.

Mars (male, overall energy) is exalted in Capricorn, giving strength, willpower, and courage to overcome difficult circumstances. In this positive placement, it brings power to overcome resistance and obstacles, bestowing strength on every level of life. Mars squares (tension) Uranus, causing a desire for the new world (Uranus) and the need for the safety of the familiar. (We can see this in the outer world.)

Saturn (limitation, karma, structure) moved into Aquarius, and it tends to affect borders, structures, and boundaries. Saturn sat in Aquarius with a new emphasis on humanitarian values with focus on group endeavors and positive changes for the collective. Aquarius is a fixed sign, which can indicate a fixed point of view that needs examination. It prefers tolerance, fairness, and a cooperative point of view.

Uranus is in Taurus, an earth sign ruled by Venus. In the few months since it’s movement into Taurus, we’ve become a new cycle that breaks the old cycle of movement, pollution of the earth, and the habit of spending as a form of enjoyment. (There’s nowhere to go!) If we take the opportunity, there’s ample time to breathe in the spring beauty and take a pause to gaze at the flowers.

The Collective Change

On the collective level, change occurs through the conjunctions of Mars (male, energy), Jupiter (good fortune), Saturn (limitation), and Pluto (transformation, underworld). Pluto rules collective energy, and conjunctions represent planets in close proximity, which amplifies their qualities. In short, these are global changes that will continue throughout 2020.

Challenges usually involve change, the ability to align with courage, hope, and right action. Mars placed in Capricorn supports the shift. Jupiter in Aquarius provides humanitarian values and new thoughts and ideas. Saturn (limitation, karma) may point to the need for commitment to spiritual values and practices, which support the earth. Pluto plunges us into the underworld where there are fear and shadows, but it also lends support for transformation if we are willing to embrace the truth of the change.

Notes

  • The chart is basically positive with tools and energy to begin work on the current global epidemic. The forecast points to the power of love (aspects with Venus), the importance of healing the earth (Uranus in Taurus), and the strength of inner will and courage (Mars in Capricorn)
  • Sun (life) and Moon (emotions) in Aries stimulate our will power and intelligence. They also mark the time of a new beginning (although it’s not yet defined.).
  • Sun/Moon square with North Node (group spiritual direction) reminds us to remain compassionate as we find personal solutions for life—and to think of others with kindness when we can.
  • Sun/Moon conjunction with Chiron may stimulate old wounds and memories. (There’s usually something that we don’t yet understand energetically with negative memories that replay. When we grasp the message and lesson, the memory dissipates.)
  • Saturn in Aquarius seeks new boundaries, borders, and structures in the world, which encompass a new way of life.
  • The Collective Conjunctions bring humanity together on a global level. This will continue throughout 2020.

Sabian Symbols based on the work of Lynda Hill

Sun/Moon sit on Aries 5, “A White Triangle with Golden Wings”. It’s a perfect symbol for this time. A triangle is a symbol of harmony and balance, and golden wings suggest help from the angels and/or spiritual world. By coming into harmony through the inner self, we evoke help from the higher aspects of life.

Mercury is placed on Pisces 7, “Illuminated by a Shaft of Light, A Large Cross Lies on the Rocks Surrounded by Sea and Mist”. A cross implies mastery of all four worlds—spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical. Surrounded by sea and mist may imply overcoming emotion on a personal and worldly level. (Mass consciousness emits emotion, and we overcome it to attain mastery.)

Venus is on Taurus 21, “A Moving Finger Points to Significant Passages in a Book”. Significant passages may refer to finding knowledge, researching scientific or holistic material, and/or feeling led to spiritual passages.

Mars is on Capricorn 26, “A Nature Spirit Dancing in the Mist of a Waterfall”. A nature spirit dancing refers to the light heartedness, which can be found when conversing with nature and/or taking time from the seriousness of life. It’s about finding the balance between the lightness of the spiritual world and responsibilities, which are inherent in daily life.

Jupiter is placed on Capricorn 24, “A Woman Entering A Convent”. Jupiter rules good fortune, and the image may seem very familiar at this time. In short, good fortune comes from separation from society and the outer world. It marks a time of inner contemplation, renewing faith, and working on the “big” picture of life.

Words from the Wolves

 

Through the passageway of time, I have learned to speak with wolves that know the stories of the universe and the secret pathways of energy. I know the feeling of their souls behind their golden eyes, the meaning of the movement of a paw, and their incredible strength.

On my free afternoons, I travel far into the mountains to meet with them, to experience the wide, wild sensation of these creatures, and to worship in the connection of the spiritual and physical world—and most of all in the great understanding of their consciousness.

When I met the wolves, I learned to see myself in a different way. I was no longer the measure of my hardships, or how life had warped me, taking away my center and clear vision. Through their eyes, I was light and powerful—and worthy of their love. (In all of my missives from the wolves, I speak in their voices so you can find this presence within yourself.)

At my request on this full moon, the wolves share their wisdom to help in moving from the shadows into the light. According to them, we will always have this experience (to some degree) during our earthly sojourn, but we can lessen the time spent there, and we can grow from it.

What is happening energetically? How does this relate to Crossing the Bridge?

Crossing the Bridge is the point in consciousness on the time/space continuum when your abilities will expand, and you will experience manifestation in a new way. It is achieved through alignment with the light or the Universe and the development of intuitive skills.

Points on the time/space continuum are reached by breakthroughs in consciousness—not a point in your linear time although the energies and current time/space point support it.

Whenever an individual puts their intent on moving into awakening, it activates discordant energies on your planet. Many individuals are awakening at once; there is an influx of light. Of course, this disturbs controlling, dark forces who have their own form of collective consciousness.

In other words, the light shines on the hidden darkness and the shadows of life. Particles of dust float to the surface. In this world, they appear as fear, disease, destruction of beauty, and political power. In your personal world, it may mean facing a fear, moving through uncomfortable tasks, or seeing the truth about the self. On a larger collective level, it means learning to alter lower vibrations into higher ones as well as finding ingenious solutions.

NOTE: We are well aware of viruses, destruction of natural resources, misuse of technology, and many other ills, and they are real. We simply say that you change them when you see untouched forests in your mind. Perhaps, you send the energy, which inspires someone to buy and preserve it. Perhaps, you help contribute to a cure when you see no more viruses or cancer. The energy of the higher collective has power and force. Like a prayer, it often works in a non-logical way.

Please explain altering vibrations and finding ingenious solutions.

Higher vibrations involve the placement of consciousness into a place of balance with your heart and inner being. Ingenious solutions are practical, but they come from higher consciousness. For example, you could see your children as continuously happy as opposed to focusing on their problems, you can see flowers growing more quickly, and you can see a consistent amount of money in your bank account.

Also, you can see yourself as well and healthy. You can imagine having more time and feeling less stress. And you can remember that light is the highest vibration on the planet. If you cultivate light through mediation and life – and happy thoughts – it will influence everything around you.  See less of what you don’t want and more of what you want.

Wherever there is chaos, see beautiful flowing order. If there is panic, see yourself and the space around you as calm. Alter the visuals in your mind and change the flow of your emotions.

See the future as something beautiful and precious instead of a series of events that give fear. Imagine every week as better than the one before. See setbacks as temporary distractions of energy that you can overcome and opportunities to find power and strength.

Imagine joining together with others who feel the truth and light that lives on this planet and sharing vibrations to lift up the planet very quickly. Choose NOT to feel the influence of lower energies. Obviously, these are all methods of raising your vibration.

Can you share more about the Higher Collective?

The Collective is currently traveling through a test, which regards placement of consciousness. As you know, it is also part of the spiritual path, but you experience it as a group and as an individual. It is part of realizing a higher frequency in all aspects of life, and you are on the way.

Every broadcast of information or light gives the choice of vision, feelings, and beliefs. Every free hour offers time to align with nature, read a book, meditate, or flow off into television or streaming. The encounters in your life are opportunities to read energy, notice your feelings, and make decisions about yourself. If you don’t feel better or more energized, you are losing energy!

Here are a few tricks.

  • When you imagine good for yourself and others with a generous heart, it comes into being.
  • Many natural laws can be used for good. Imagine expansion of positive events, feelings, and desires. Contract negative ones (see less of them.) Use inertia to rest or stay on task. Use gravity to connect with the earth.
  • Let your point of focus (your desire) pull you into it. See it as colorful, revolving point in your future. Feel its energy pull you into who you are — the person living in the desirable future.
  • Take time to see the beauty and wonder of who you are. Glance at your heart and see how worthy you are.

March Full Moon Forecast

Image by Amanda Clark

 

Appearing on March 9 at 1:45 pm ET, March’s Full Moon is a special one, opening the door to the energies of the spring as we prepare for the equinox on March 19. It’s a super moon—an intense event followed by even more super moons. The energy will be quite strong.

Sun is in Pisces, bringing the floating feeling of water. Sun sextiles (gently positive) Mars, which increases enthusiasm and energy, Jupiter, expanding optimism and good fortune, Saturn, bestowing patience and perseverance, and Pluto, which gives desire and determination Moon (emotions) is in the opposite sign of Virgo, an earth sign that likes order, precision, and routine. Likely, we’ll move between both extremes.

The Moon bestows excellent energy in many areas of life. Moon trines Mars (action), heightening emotional strength, Jupiter (expansion), bringing emotional warmth and generosity, Saturn (structure, karma), heightening organization skills, and Pluto (will, transformation), conferring emotional power and will.

With many lovely aspects, we have to question why the world feels so heavy and chaotic? Since 2020 began, we’ve experienced strong aspects with Pluto, which rules and influences collective energy. Pluto also reveals the underlying darkness, which is hidden in the world. Mars conjuncts (close to) Saturn (limitation, karma), and the two planets carry heavy energy from the underworld. Their purpose is to reveal the energy of the darkness, so we can find the discipline and strength (and methods) to overcome it. At the moment, the news and other forces spread lower information such as fear and panic through broadcasts. We’re only begun our practice of changing the world through higher vibrations, and it requires time.

Moon opposes Neptune (illusion, mysticism), clouding our vision and giving a sense of uncertainty (For example, we knew rain was needed for Australia, but it’s more difficult to create a solution to the coronavirus, the devastation of natural resources, and political instability.) Metaphysics teaches that the universe will provide the information and the “how” if we hold to a higher vision. (The answers may come and go. If we listen to our heart, the solutions will come.)

Mercury (communications) remains in retrograde until March 10, which will open the door to action desires, and potential plans. Mercury (communications) is in Aquarius, an air sign, which heightens mental ability and originality. The planet sextiles Uranus (sudden change, quantum field), opening our consciousness to new streams of thought. (It’s a good time for focusing on aspects of life that require change.)

Venus (love, relationships) is placed in Taurus, an earth sign ruled by Venus. This placement helps in seeing beauty of all kinds—in nature, love, and life. Venus squares Saturn (karma), giving energy to work through karma and beliefs based on life experiences that relate to love. Venus conjuncts (close to) Uranus (quantum field, sudden change), and this gives the power to move into a state of unconditional love to create positive change. Venus conjunct Uranus can also make relationships feel exciting and intense.

Mars (action, male energy) conjuncts Jupiter (good fortune, expansion), increasing our ability to move the direction of new paths and possibilities. It heightens energy, strength, and confidence. Mars conjuncts (close to) Pluto (subconscious, transmutation), and this aspect can give courage in moving through old blocks and patterns, or it can lead to egoic grasps of power. (Any aspect with Pluto applies to group and collective consciousness, i.e. the direction of the higher and lower self on a global level.)

Jupiter (expansion, good luck) conjuncts Saturn (limitation, karma), which can cause a push me/pull me energy between warmth and enthusiasm and contraction/limitation. Jupiter and Saturn are placed in Capricorn, a male, earth sign that rules ambition and structures in the outer world. It’s an odd combination of death/rebirth that can give the vision to create a new world from old structures—at its best. (Some of its negative aspects are currently shown through 5G, destruction of national parks and resources, etc. However, many other alternatives are present if we hold the vision.)

Saturn (limitation, karma) squares Uranus (sudden change, quantum field), which can make changes feel frustrating. It throws unexpected obstacles, changes, and delays on the visible path of life, but it also asks for greater flexibility, openness, and the ability to go with the flow. When we can take this step, life realigns with the correct path. (It’s important to acknowledge the many paths that lead to the top of the mountain.)

The Big Conjunctions

Mars (action), Jupiter (expansion), and Saturn (limitation) conjunct Pluto (underworld, transmutation). All four planets are in Capricorn, the sign of the goat, which is accompanied by the desire to climb and create structures in the outer world.

Conjunctions between Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto in Capricorn continue throughout 2020, and no one knows exactly what it means because it doesn’t happen very often. Having said this, it affects collective consciousness, which always involves a choice. If we truly want a higher reality, we must work on it through higher consciousness, positive visuals, and emitting positive vibrations. (We also have to look at the darkness with a clear eye to discern bigger truths. Otherwise, we don’t know where we need to work.) Also, we have to believe in our power to create, but this is the basic work of metaphysics—a task that most of us agreed to take on in this lifetime.

Tips:

  • Sun (life) and Moon (emotions) provide excellent energy in many aspects of life, including vitality, determination, positive emotions and will. Tune into the positive vibrations and notice what you love about life. With Sun in Pisces and Mercury (communications) in retrograde, there may be a passive, slightly tired feeling.
  • Meditate and/or become very still. Let your heart find the answers for your life. Moon’s opposition with Neptune can make solutions feel hazy or unclear, but you can overcome it with this technique.
  • Mercury (communication, mind) in Aquarius gives brilliant insights and new solutions. Take time to consider life from different perspectives.
  • Venus (love) in Taurus provides a wonderful love vibration. It can help in aligning with the beauty of nature, the movement of the trees, or the color of the sky. Slow down and take in the first sightings of spring.
  • Jupiter (good fortune) and Saturn (limitation/karma) are conjunct. On one level, it’s time to release particular aspects of life. On another, it’s important to ponder the creation of the next step in your life.
  • The Big Conjunction between Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto is about understanding, exploring, and experiencing the collective’s influence on a personal and global level. For those of us on a higher level, it’s important to realize how the placement of consciousness affects the world. (Work on those higher vibrations and positive visuals.)

 

 

Sabian Symbols, based on the work of Lynda Hill

Sun sits on Pisces 20, “A Table Set for an Evening Meal” indicates provision of one’s necessities and the promise of nourishment and care. The food, table, and company are waiting, and the best meals come with connection and a positive attitude from all who eat at the table. It may represent an assurance from the universe that our needs will be met, and we will find the necessary support on our spiritual journey.

Moon is placed on Virgo 20, “A Caravan of Cars Headed for the Promised Land”.  The image depicts a journey of people to a promised land, which provides a new way of life.  It can represent leaving behind stagnation, habits, and repeated cycles to move into new opportunities with like-minded people.

Mercury is on Aquarius 29, “A Butterfly Emerging from a Chrysalis”. The image reflects the magic of awakening—a transformation into a new, beautiful form. (Mercury involves thought, so we may encounter new methods of thinking about ourselves and life such as the power of the inner self!)

Venus sits on Taurus 6, “A Bridge Being Built Across a High Narrow Gorge”, which is a perfect symbol for Venus in Taurus. Venus rules love, and it is love that leads us through impossible places that bridge old and new consciousness.

Mars is on Capricorn 16, “School Grounds Filled with Boys and Girls in Gymnasium Suits”. The school ground points to a group learning experience that is physical in the outdoors. School children are often a mix of many groups of people with different levels of intelligence, who are learning together. (Mars rules energy at large, and it could refer to our current state with a mixture of individuals who want to learn about the world and themselves in physical reality.)

Jupiter is placed on Capricorn 22, “A General Gracefully Accepting Defeat”. It’s not the game; it’s how we play it. If we play by the rules of the universe, it may look like a loss in the outer when it’s a truly a gain in the inner world because we’ve remained true. It’s discovering true nobility of character and knowing when to let go.

Mystical New Moon Forecast

Image by Josephine Wall

 

 

The New Moon appears on Sunday, February 23rd, and it brings the mystical energy of Pisces, symbolized by two fish swimming in opposite directions.  Pisces is ruled by Neptune, and the natives of the sign are imaginative, generous, and compassionate as well as moody and idealistic. Sun (life), Moon (emotions), and Mercury (thought) are placed in Pisces, which enhances spiritual focus, intuitive ability, and emotion. These three planets sextile (harmonious aspect, which promotes growth) Mars (action) and Uranus (quantum field, sudden change), meaning it’s possible to create change and by accessing original ideas to move through life. They trine (harmonious) North Node, which delivers the spiritual direction of higher collective consciousness. (We could possibly take a leap on a conscious level.)

Mercury (communications) is in retrograde in Pisces, which can slow communications and travel. Pisces rules the twelfth house of karma, and this placement can bring memories and patterns to the surface. It can also give religious/spiritual insights that help in understanding lessons, meanings of events, and unraveling old energetic events. Mercury conjuncts Neptune (mysticism, illusion), and this aspect can aid in seeing through illusion and finding spiritual meaning in life.

We continue to work on love (Venus) by expanding and exploring its meaning. Venus in Aries (fire) squares Mars (male, action), Saturn (karma, time), and Pluto (subconscious, transformation). It may make us question the core beliefs behind our efforts to move forward–and to take a deeper look to see if they are love based. We’re likely to feel the karma from the past (what we find unlovable about ourselves), and we may have conflicts when we want to get our way (Pluto). It’s important to know if our desires are aligned with love and soul growth–or a compulsive urge. The answer is about finding love within the inner self and using it as a guide stone. Here’s an important point about love. It’s not just about moving into a loving place and getting love. It’s about loving ourselves enough to become discerning with thoughts and emotions—as well creating a place of inner knowing about boundaries and what is best for our soul.

Mars (action), Jupiter (good fortune), Saturn (karma), and Pluto are all in Capricorn, which is about power and structure. In short, we have the power to use our gifts to grow, develop, and link with collective consciousness—or become wrapped up in power struggles. Mars in Capricorn strengthens the will, gives courage, and aligns with ambition. The placement increases discipline and helps with attaining goals.Mars trines (harmonious) Uranus (quantum field), which supports taking risks and acting on new ideas. (It also increases overall energy.) Mars opposes (2 conflicting concepts) North Node (group spiritual direction), cuing us to the importance of reviewing our goals to see if they benefit the “all”.

Jupiter (expansion, good fortune) is placed in Capricorn, benefits those who organize, plan, and visualize results with work and goals in an ethical manner. Good fortune comes from good planning and practical endeavors that support growth and inner development of others. Jupiter conjuncts (close to) Saturn (karma, limitation). It’s known as the Great Conjunction, which occurs in twenty year intervals. The aspect combines the discipline and stripping away what isn’t needed (Saturn) with the idealistic vision of Jupiter, and it can bring a single mindedness to success and the attainment of goals. Jupiter conjuncts Pluto (subconscious, transformation), which amplifies the desire to focus on goals, structure, and success. Jupiter sextiles (opportunity for growth) Neptune (mysticism, illusion), and this brings a light, positive feeling to the chart; it also increases luck and fortunate possibilities.

Saturn (limitation, karma) squares (tension) Uranus (sudden change, quantum field). It’s an odd aspect that can bring unwanted changes, which require adjustment and contemplation. At the same time, it increases our craving for specific changes and independence from routine. With Mercury in retro, it could bring change to appointments, travel plans, and the desire to communicate goals and/or create opportunities. However, there are enough positive aspects in the chart to flow through the frustrations–and learn more about the fluctuations of our consciousness and how they affect life. Saturn conjuncts (close to) Pluto (subconscious, transformation), asking for a new structure in life and resolute devotion to goals. (It’s important to consider how our goals support the growth of the inner self and the overall well being of the “all”.)

Uranus (quantum field, sudden change) squares Pluto (subconscious, underworld), creating tension between the early degrees of Taurus, which depict the beauty of spring and the joy of creating with the nature, with Pluto in Capricorn, a placement that involves using the will to succeed, finding power (using resources to succeed), and creating ambitions in physical form. Balancing the energies of Taurus (love of the earth) and Capricorn (using resources for success) is part of the equation that is presented to the world.

Tips

  1. With Sun, Moon, and Mercury in Pisces, it’s possible to attune to the mystical, spiritual world to discover insights about life, emotions, and thoughts. We can also receive unusual solutions and interesting points of view through the alignment with Uranus. It’s a supercharged position for spiritual connection.
  2. Mercury retro in Pisces can lead to reflection on past karma and patterns. The aspects (above) can lend new insights–if we’re willing to take time for meditation and seeing life from different perspectives.
  3. As a collective group, we’re revising our definition and understanding of love (Venus). Real love gives energy and light; it illuminates our path. It teaches about boundaries, generosity, and the impossibly beautiful changes that come from this state.
  4. Mars (male energy, assertion) pushes us in the direction of our goals, and Uranus spurs us onward into achievement and realization. The opposition with North Node asks that we consider the final outcome of our goal. Is the goal selfish, or does it benefit the “all”?
  5. The Great Conjunction with Jupiter and Saturn is about expanding our idealistic vision while letting go of whatever doesn’t serve us. It requires discipline and vision to create dreams. This aspect supplies both. Jupiter also sextiles Neptune (mysticism, idealism), which brings a wonderful, light feeling.

 

Sabian Symbols, based on the work of Lynda Hill

Sabian symbols provide a symbolic description of each sign and degree of the zodiac to provide deeper interpretation and understanding.

Sun/Moon on Pisces 5, “A Church Bazaar”, which represents members of the community coming together to socialize. At a bazaar, we move away from loneliness to come together for a greater cause as well as buying, selling, or exchanging goods. On a higher level, it may represent a different way of creating group cooperation for the benefit of many.

Mercury sits on Pisces 10, “An Aviator in the Clouds”, a depiction of a pilot in his plane flying high in the clouds. It’s a perfect symbol for this chart as Sun/Moon/Mercury placed in Pisces may lead us into the mystical where it feels possible to float above life problems. We need the elevated view of higher consciousness, but with Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto in earth, it’s equally important to find the power to build a new life by addressing issues and finding new solutions in physical reality.

Venus is placed on Aries 19, “A Magic Carpet Hovers over the Depressing Reality of Everyday Life in an Industrial Area.” The Magic Carpet provides a contrast as a symbol of spiritual life to “Everyday Life in an Industrial Life”, which represents the mundane lower aspects of life such as greed and limitation. A Magic Carpet can take us on a journey into a beautiful, spiritual landscape that ignites imagination, belief in miracles, and possibilities found only in the mystical world.

Mars is on Capricorn 5, “Indians—Some Rowing a Canoe While Others Are Dancing a War Dance”. The symbol depicts a group endeavor although everyone is not agreement with activities. It could describe the lack of agreement and cooperation within higher collective consciousness.

Jupiter sits on Capricorn 19, “A Child of About Five Carrying a Huge Shopping Bag Filled with Groceries”.  The image is someone too young and too small to carry this much weight and responsibility. With Jupiter (good fortune) in this position, it could refer to those who are connected in higher consciousness and willingly carry the weight of those who live on a lower vibratory rate. It’s a way of carrying karma for the world, but perhaps our work would be equally helpful if we created joy and happiness.

7 Reasons to Manifest More

 

 

 

Manifestation is a way of focusing the mind and emotions on a visual while connecting with the universe to realize a desired result. It must come from the heart to bring true satisfaction and relief from a lower condition. It must vibrate above fears and old projections about life–and it must take you into new realizations of perceiving life. Otherwise, you’re merely recreating old experiences and patterns, which eventually bring dissatisfaction. (True manifestation is the creation of new experiences and ideas that bring insight into the soul.)

  1. Positive manifestations begin with the heart and its desire. The heart chakra receives and distributes unconditional, universal love. In this space, you begin to find the feeling of the desirable life, which expands through visuals and aligned thoughts. The desire becomes the north star, the compass point of consciousness that leads to greater realization.
  2. Every visualization develops through intuition and meditation. It’s how you hear the universe and the language of the heart. By following intuition, you receive a positive feeling that is different from habitual emotions–and eventually leads to new, better results.
  3. The practice of manifestation leads away from comfortable routines that limit life; it leads to new opportunities, expressions of life, and a creative outlook. By holding the visualization, you tell the universe that you want a different, higher frequency, and the universe whispers directions through the heart. By learning to hear the universe through the heart, you open to colors, sounds, feelings, and a new way of thinking.
  4. With every manifestation, there is a part of self that resists the new “way”. By learning about this part of the self–and discovering its beliefs, fears, and lower vibrations–you learn how to create a new way of believing in yourself and the universe, a new way of speaking to yourself, and a method of finding and acting on your inner power. (It’s so much more fun than staying the same!)
  5. Many desires take practice and work to manifest. You may manifest part of your dream but experience parts of it as uncomfortable and/or out of alignment. This is actually wonderful because you are learning to discern between the desires of the inner self and who you think that you are. When you take action and work on a dream, you find what parts of you are in alignment with your dream and which parts of you need work and/or refinement. It’s a journey into self-discovery.
  6. The practice, work, and reprogramming lead to the discovery of the inner self, the part of you who always loves you and knows the way to higher frequencies and better solutions. In the beginning, the actual manifestation in physical form is the reward. Eventually, the discovery of the true self becomes a beautiful and meaningful journey. You learn who you truly are.
  7. All of the gifts of the universe (in material and spiritual form) lead to the recognition of the goodness of the universe. When you learn to manifest a particular gift, you can replicate it for others, teach and share the process, or simply share the light. It’s impossible to manifest positively without a higher vibration. Your work and efforts shine through, bringing a higher vibration to those around you.

 

A Few Tips

  1. See the opposite of a difficult situation. Visualize and feel harmony, possible solutions, and divert your attention from the problem.
  2. You can recall memories of happier times, physical vitality, and mental focus to change your feelings and outlook on life.
  3. Focus on the beauty of nature, the flow of life, and love of others to move into gratitude, which attracts an array of positive vibrations.
  4. When possible, see positive outcomes for others. Send pink light (love) to yourself and others. It raises your vibration.
  5. Remember that the universe loves and supports you. Make time to tap into this larger and more wonderful world.

Full Snow Moon and Continuing Change

 

February brings a quieter forecast with Mercury retrograde, beginning on February 16. In the past, retrogrades tended to indicate a period of rest, but it’s very important that we stay on track. When we can’t actively pursue our desires, we can meditate on them or continue working on them in a quiet way. In other words, persist!

(There’s tremendous pressure from the planets for change, growth, and a new way of being. It’s accomplished through action motivated by the inner self–as opposed to running around and trying to do everything. When we feel the “push”, we can recognize it as a planetary push, detach, and reconnect with the inner self, which is how we create spiritual change in the inner and outer world.)

The Full Snow Moon appears on February 9. It’s a super moon, meaning it’s closer than usual to the earth and will feel more intense. Sun is in Aquarius, the humanitarian sign of the New Age. Moon is placed in Leo, a fire sign ruling the heart, which ignites passion and desire for love, romance, and drama. Moon trines Mars (action) in Sagittarius, urging direct action and assertiveness. It encourages optimism and hope.

Mercury (communication, mind) is in Pisces, the sign of the last age. In this position, it encourages reflection and union with mysticism. The planet conjuncts Neptune, which can connect us to the unseen world and convey information, particularly relating to spiritual mysteries. Mercury trines North Node (the spiritual path or endeavor) in Cancer, encouraging insights about empathy and emotional understanding.

Venus (love, partnership) moved in Aries, creating a bolder, fiery tone with relationships and feminine issues. Venus squares Mars, continuing the friction between male/female energies. Venus conjuncts (close to) Chiron, the wounded healer, and we may heal ourselves by opening to love, redefining our feelings/beliefs about love, and taking affirmative steps in a romantic direction.

Mars (assertion, male energy) in Sagittarius boosts our desire to move ahead on our quest. Fire signs bring creativity, energy, and motion. Mars (action) trines Uranus, emphasizing bold action, but it squares Neptune, meaning our vision is not always clear. We may feel the push to move forward but lack clarity with our sense of direction. (If the opportunity appears to act – as visualized – take advantage of it. Ask advice on other issues.)

Jupiter (expansion, good fortune) in Capricorn conjuncts Pluto, the planet ruling the underworld, transmutation, and power. It opens the opportunity to use natural abilities and talents to create achievement. Pluto rules all types of power, and it’s wise to focus on endeavors that benefit the self – and the all. Personal pursuits for power can bring our “undoing”. (This aspect may well apply to current political and global trends.)

Saturn, planet of limitation and karma, squares (tension) Uranus (quantum field, erratic change). Saturn likes slow motion, and Uranus loves rapid change. There’s a combination of very different energies with pressure to change our lives while remaining loyal to responsibilities and creations from the past. It’s about expanding while working with the structure of our current lives. It can feel frustrating and confining, but the object is about finding balance—learning to grow in one’s present circumstances. Saturn and Pluto are conjunct in the relatively rare aspect that can bring awakening of higher consciousness and the power to build a more benevolent world.

Uranus (quantum field, sudden change) squares Pluto (underworld, transformation), dredging up hidden truths from the dark rivers of the subconscious while bringing old patterns of repetition to the surface. It’s wonderful when we can see it and make constructive change; it’s painful when we feel it but can’t grasp the underlying truth.)

Tips:

  • Several aspects in the chart exert influences that can give the feeling of a “push” and the sensation of life moving faster than usual. Slow down and review when the feeling occurs. Align with the inner self and think about what’s truly important to personal growth and the pursuit of dreams. Let go of the rest.
  • It’s important to take action when pursuing goals. A slower period of reflection begins on February 16 with Mercury retrograde. Currently, Mars encourages action, but our vision can be clouded by the Mars/Neptune square.
  • Mercury in Pisces combines emotions and thoughts with a spiritual focus.
  • We’re in a period of intense change that involves higher and lower consciousness as indicated by Jupiter conjunct Pluto and Saturn conjunct Pluto. It continues throughout the year.
  • Venus (love, relationships) is very active in its placement in Aries. It asks for assertiveness with love and creative reflection.
  • Jupiter increases the force of our natural talents and pushes us forward through its conjunction (close to) Pluto (transformation, power, subconscious). It’s best to keep the good of “all” in mind when forming goals.
  • Saturn (time, limitation) and Uranus (sudden change, quantum field) are square, creating a conflict between responsibilities to our present life and the urge to force change.
  • The Full Moon will feel intense. Plan accordingly.

 

Sabian Symbols, from Lynda Hill’s work

Sun is on 21 Aquarius, “A Woman Disappointed and Disillusioned, Courageously Facing a Seemingly Empty Life”.  The image depicts a hopeless review of a meaningless life; however, lives often change when we look at them with courage and a willingness to alter our beliefs. When we focus on the good with gratitude, overcome old perceptions, and approach possibilities, life improves.

Moon sits on 21 Leo, “Intoxicated Chickens Dizzily Flap Their Wings” symbolizes overreaching and forgetting to work with the limitations in our current life. In metaphysics, whatever doesn’t work is a lesson in rewriting our desires and goals—as well as approaching life in a different way with a new, more practical perspective.

Mercury is placed on 9 Pisces, “The Race Begins: Intent on Outdistancing His Rivals, a Jockey Spurs His Horse to Great Speed.” It can certainly feel like a race with the current pressure from the outer planets; however, racing to our goals is not a good answer. Reaching goals on a spiritual level involves consistent change, practice, and discipline. Feel the desire but do the work.

Venus is on 2 Aries, “A Comedian Entertaining a Group of Friends”. Part of love is bringing humor and lightness to life. Fun actually lifts our vibrations. Bringing lighter vibrations can help others and create a communal feeling of unity, particularly with those we love.

Mars sits on 26 Sagittarius, “A Flag-Bearer in Battle”. The symbol refers to acting on conviction, representing a cause, and/or promoting truth. Currently, the symbol may ask if we’re ready to move ahead on inner convictions and create a new life.

Jupiter is on 16 Capricorn, “School Grounds Filled with Boys and Girls in Gymnasium Suits”. Interaction, movement, and physical vitality are implied by the symbol. It implies instruction, fun, and awareness of energy between the two sexes.
