Crossing the Bridge: Message from the Wolves

 

From the mountains, forests, and plains, we, the wolves, come to speak to you of the crossing of the bridge, the new journey of consciousness. It is awaiting all of you who work sincerely on the level of higher consciousness. Higher consciousness brings an opening to the heart, a wisdom of spirit, and an inner alignment with all that is good on the earth. The opportunity to cross the bridge, to move past the threshold of old beliefs, will come to all who awakened. We are here to help you, and we hear and feel the desires and request from sincere hearts.

Over the bridge, there is a place for higher collective consciousness in which life moves in a very different way. Higher wishes and desires come into being. Consciousness expands and opens to new realizations that bring more abundance (on every level) into your being. Beyond this is the joy of connection, which involves walking on the earth and feeling her response, surrounding one’s self with people who are loving and want to grow, and examining and expanding the potential for growth.

Crossing the Bridge occurs when you are ready to do the work—to create a transformation that transcends your impressions and beliefs about reality. It also involves a great field of thought and tremendous possibility. While in the middle of spiritual work, your physical life and way of being often does not fit into the plan of the inner self. To transcend this, you must cross a bridge. In the past, you have done this on an individual level, but now you must master it on a collective level.

What is the bridge?

The bridge is a place of higher consciousness where good things happen more often, the energy is lighter and there is more connection with the inner self, and nature moves into harmony. You will feel less of the pull of mass consciousness, and everything good will happen more easily. You arrive in this place through intention, the combination of the will, which is a focus of the mind, and reading life through the heart, which is the true language of the earth. At this point, you hear and see things, which are often considered imaginary in your reality but will appear quite real and factual if you follow them.

Many feats can be accomplished when the energy of the higher collective is complete. It has many names on this planet—and is sometimes spoken of in religious terms—but it is a “real” field of energy that is transforming.

How does it work?

In the past, you have (hopefully) learned how to center, project positive feelings and thoughts, and move through and/or recognize blocks. You also know how to move into the flow. When you are in the flow, life around you changes, supporting you gently and altering the normal pattern of events in your life.

At this point, many, many people have incarnated to experience awakening as a group. When a higher frequency is held for a period of time, everyone in the group feels encouraged, enlightened, and happier about life. When you consciously decide to commit to moving more deeply into your own higher consciousness and personal happiness, you are moving more deeply into higher collective consciousness. You must truly want this to attain it.

We often send hints, images, and intuitions to you so that you find the right thought or image. Actually, all of nature is doing the same for our evolution is part of yours. We are committed to your evolution whether we are here or not.

The earth is raising her frequency, and everything in nature is radiating new vibrations, which should help with your changes and realizations. Walking each day or sitting outside to mediate are also helpful because you absorb a specific vibration from the natural world at this point.

What holds us back from this realization?

Your current personality and way of thought in this incarnation is who you think are—when you are much greater, brighter, and more powerful than what you think. The history of the earth has not always been a positive one, and it may seem that staying “safe” is wisest choice although growing is a much safer one.

Every human being has perceptions and beliefs that inhibit their growth. Every one of you has fears. Sometimes, they are called blocks, but it’s closer to say they are ways of not seeing yourself clearly and not acting on your inner desires.

You can – at least – begin seeing the earth as a better place, correcting your images of what is wrong in your life with imagery and feelings that take you in a positive direction. You can refuse to complain and change instead. You can believe in yourself. You can ask the universe to help you see life in a new way that is ripe with possibility and opportunity. You can learn to change your thoughts and feelings, which limit your life.

Is there anything you want to add?

The bridge represents a new reality, a different frequency, a new way of perceiving life. Every step on the spiritual journey does this if you are open and wise enough to perceive it. It also involves changing your perceptions about life. For example, do you see rain or fire, do we see peace or war – and do you believe in the power in united, positive consciousness?

Do you understand the importance of acting on your heart and trusting the information without asking how or why when led in a specific direction? You must follow your heart and believe in your intuition. These leads to higher energy. When there is enough higher energy, life changes in the most amazing ways. It’s not a miracle although it may feel this way. It is how the universe truly works.

Wolf Moon, Full Moon Forecast

Image by Josephine Walls

 

2020 is a 4 year, and it begins with a big bang—an eclipse on January 10 with wild conjunctions and energy.  4 is a male number, and it involves putting our mental and spiritual energies into physical form.

In many ways, it is about building a spiritual structure on the physical level. My personal feeling is that it involves a core structure of higher collective consciousness as expressed in physical form. This means YOU and your alignment with your inner self, the rising energy of the earth and the collective along with a fierce focus on the highest good to create a new reality.

The Full Wolf Moon appears on January 10 at 2:21 pm ET, and it is accompanied by an eclipse. Eclipses are a reset, and this is not a comfortable one. The Lunar Eclipse opposes Mercury (communication), Saturn (karma), and Pluto (underworld, transformation), which causes conflicting thoughts and feelings. Sun, Mercury, Saturn, and Pluto square (tension) Eris, the dwarf planet of discord. (We’ve all experienced discord in our personal lives, and we know how to return to center and look for the inner self when we feel upset or sense discord.)

Part of the difficulty lies with the Moon, which represents emotion, particularly when placed in Cancer, a water sign. Cancer represents the divine mother and feminine grace.  The chart contains 6 planets in earth signs (including North Node), and the Moon in Cancer, which opposes or interferes with the Capricorn earth element.  Moon opposes (conflicting feelings) Mercury (thought), Saturn (karma), and Pluto (transformation). Moon in Cancer is associated with feelings intuition, caution, vulnerability, maternal feelings and security, which asks for a wise read in these aspects of life.

Sun, Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto (life, mind, expansion, limitation, and transformation) are in Capricorn, an earth sign. Capricorn is associated with discipline, hard work and maturity. It rules the skeletal structure, joints and knees. Associations include diplomacy, achievement, seriousness, tactfulness and success. Capricorn lends structure and form (or grid work) for materialization of passion, thoughts and emotion. Dedication and application teach how karma is overcome – not only through applied effort on the material plane but through the grace of the Universe on the highest plane.

Saturn conjunct Pluto is one of the more influential aspects of the chart. It’s interesting as Saturn (limitation, karma, and structure) is about building structures, which is implied in the number 4. It’s also about authority, which metaphysics teaches is adherence to the inner self as the greatest truth.  We’ll travel through another conjunction in September. Pluto implies transformation and change through looking at the shadow side of the self–and the world. The shadow side can refer to what we don’t see about others or the direction of our life. For example, we may give people the benefit of the doubt when they are not aligned with our highest and best interest. (Sometimes, they change their behavior when we see them clearly.) It can also refer to our state of consciousness such as the misaligned belief of thinking loving kind behavior elicits the same from others when boundaries are a necessity. (Regardless, it’s a state that we can’t see until Pluto reveals it.)

Mercury (mind, thought) in Capricorn conjuncts (close to/amplifies) Saturn and Pluto, heightening the strong aspect between Saturn/Pluto. Mercury is the mind, and only the higher mind can be trusted to convey truth. It’s best to give space and time to thoughts before believing they are real and/or taking action.

Venus (love, beauty) is in Aquarius, which is helpful in bringing our hearts together for higher consciousness and collective work. From this perspective, we can truly feel the goodness that results from coming together as a community. This feeling can become stronger than fear and lead us to solutions, which haven’t been explored in the past. Venus squares (tension) Mars (male, assertion), creating tension between the sexes and the two sides of the self. Mars sits in Sagittarius, encouraging creative endeavors and actions that propel us on the journey of the soul.

 

Neptune

The Saving Grace

The aspects in the chart, which can lead us through the current challenges, lie with Neptune, planet of mysticism, idealism, and illusion. When planets form positive aspects with Neptune, we can feel harmony and connection with the divine. Neptune enhances creativity and reception of spiritual concepts and information. (A good symbol is a beautiful, medieval cathedral that is associated with miracles.)

The Moon in Cancer trines (harmonious) Neptune, allowing our higher emotions to receive uplifting energy and emotional insights. Sun (life) and Mercury (thought) sextile (weaker but harmonious aspect) Neptune. By opening our minds and lives to the Divine, we can receive messages and insights for guidance during this odd time.

Tips

  • This time calls for patience, persistence and dedication with spiritual life and outer life. Earth signs are about structures and building in the physical world.
  • We will see our own shadow and the world’s shadow during this time. Both are best viewed when firmly anchored in the inner self. Observe and send light whenever possible.
  • Emotions, associated with the Moon, are part of the challenge. We want the right amount of empathy, a clear read with intuition, a balance with security and risk, and good judgement when expressing our emotions. (Wait if you’re not sure.)
  • Mercury (thought) confuses the matter with oppositions with the Moon. Meditate for a clear read. Don’t’ trust all of your thoughts.
  • The insightful aspects of the chart lie in quiet contemplation of spiritual concepts and asking for help from the Divine.

Sabian Symbols, based on Lynda Hill’s work

Sun (life) and Mercury (mind) sit on Capricorn 21, “A Relay Race”, which symbolizes creating a victory through cooperation and teamwork. On a higher level, it could refer to the importance of collective consciousness, which consists of individuals working on a higher vision.

Moon is placed on Cancer 21, “A Prima Donna Singing”, which can represent a First Lady singing in an opera or a demanding, controlling type of person. It could represent the choice necessary in aligning with positive emotions for the duration of the eclipse.

Venus sits on Aquarius 27, “An Ancient Pottery Bowl Filled with Violets”. The image depicts a simple and gentle example of beauty as a response to life. It urges us to find joy and meaning with the humble but pleasing aspects of life.

Mars is on Sagittarius 5, “An Old Owl Perched High in a Tree”. The owl typically represents Minerva, the goddess of wisdom. Owls can see in the darkness, and their head turns 360 degrees. They can perceive aspects of life that are usually hidden. The symbol points to the power of observation, particularly when taking action or asserting the self in life.

Jupiter is placed on Capricorn 9, “An Angel Comes Carrying A Harp”. It’s a beautiful symbol for Jupiter, the planet of expansion that helps with expansion of dreams. It encourages our natural ability to hear and feel the harmonious side of life.

Saturn and Pluto sit on Capricorn 23, “A Soldier Receiving Two Awards for Bravery in Combat”. Courage, skill, and bravery are awarded in this symbol, but the question remains about where we choose to act bravely and use our skills—probably not in an actual battle (For many of us, it’s internal battle to free the inner self.) The symbol can also represent receiving compensation for acts completed in the past.

New Moon/Solar Eclipse

 

The New Moon/Solar Eclipse appears at 12:13 am on December 26. Eclipses bring surprises and change with an undulating on-off energy that will pervade Christmas Day and the days following the eclipse. Typically, a New Moon moves consciousness into the void for contemplation, but the aspects of this chart bring high, spiritual energy into play. Sun (life) and Moon (emotions) are in Capricorn, a sign denoting dedication, persistence, and devotion often to the outer world and (sometimes) to the inner world.

Sun (life), Moon (emotions), and Mercury (thought, mind) conjunct Jupiter, planet of good fortune and expansion. Through alignment of life, emotion, and mind, we can find expansion and discover the heart’s desire. (Our true heart’s desires come from universal sources, and it’s particularly beneficial to connect with them at this time.)

Sun (life), Moon (emotions), Mercury (thought, mind), and Jupiter (good fortune) trine (beneficial and harmonious) Uranus, the planet of the quantum field and sudden change. It’s possible to receive gestalt thoughts, deep understanding of universal energies, or simply perceive the goodness of the One Light. It’s also important to think out of the box as Uranus rules originality and new ideas. (One caution lies with Mercury’s square with Neptune. Our thoughts may feel clouded and/or confused. It can take time to decipher intuitions and/or new realizations.)

Venus (love, relationships) in Aquarius squares Uranus (quantum field, sudden change), which can create over-reaction in relationships—or amplify feelings of heaviness. It’s important time to contemplate the good and valuable aspects of relationships as opposed to acting on irritation and lower energies.

Mars (action, energy, male) sits in Scorpio, which gives power and insight in taking actions and making decisions. Mars trines (harmonious) Neptune (mysticism, idealism), and the positive aspect can help in creating alignment with directions and intuitions from the mystical world.

Saturn (limitation, karma) and Pluto (regeneration, subconscious) will remain in conjunction for some time. This aspect is about shedding our outer self and discovering the light within through perceiving the darkness in life and illuminating it with truth.

The caution in the chart lies with aspects with the North Node in Cancer. We’re encouraged to take time to perceive the goodness in others and act in an empathetic manner whenever possible. It’s not a good time to say exactly how we feel; it can wait for a week or two until the stars change.

Several squares are formed with Chiron, the wounded healer. Sun (life), Moon (emotions), Mercury (thought, mind), and Jupiter (good fortune) square Chiron, indicating that we’re only beginning to perceive the patterns of the outer self. (Illumination and healing require time and insight.)

One Love

 

 

There is a great light that runs through the universe. Its expression is love, which brings about oneness and unity. When we find it, it’s visible in everything as an underlying presence of universal light. It is the light that appears in the darkness, bringing awakening and grace.

 It’s also apparent as higher intelligence, a form of thought that surpasses normal intellect, bringing impossibly beautiful answers and solutions. When we find it on a personal level, it appears as One Light, One Love—a force that is strong, fluid, and in alignment with the Heart. When the One Light is strong within us, we touch others with our light—and universal light.

 Everyone wants more love because the heart longs to open to this state of grace. When we connect with the love “frequency”, we receive more of it. When we think about awakening, we automatically connect with energetic waves, which give the feeling of love. When we open the heart, we receive more light and love from the universe.

 

Tips:

  1. The placement of consciousness affects your experience. For example, when you think about light, you receive love. When you love yourself, it alters the flow of particles in your body and energy field. When you send love (pink light), it can alter relationships and bring healing. (Obviously, this type of work involves sincere feelings.)
  2. The ultimate source of light and love is the universe. It comes through meditation and contemplation—and by listening to the inner self. (You know when you find it because everything feels bright, beautiful, and still.)
  3. Finding universal love changes our perception of life. It reveals the inner self. You see–the inner self often differs from “who” you think you are. This part of the self feels life with a multiplicity of sensations. It speaks through intuition to lead you on your path.
  4. Finding the inner self means embarking on a passage of self-love. This involves boundaries, insights, loving the darkness within the self, and a willingness to see the truth. It also brings more love, compassion, and empathy. It’s a journey—not an immediate answer.
  5. The heart speaks more loudly as you step into love. It whispers about what you truly love, and it tells you about hurt and pain, which are sometimes hidden beneath the surface. You also become more vulnerable, and this means becoming brave.
  6. As you step into vulnerability, you begin to see how universal love heals. You can send light or love to others. You can hold a vision of healing for the world. You can send love, comfort, and compassion. You want to see abundance and success for others.
  7. Love teaches you about change, which may mean changing yourself. Perhaps, you learn to love your body or your life. Maybe, you speak kindly or see the underlying light in everything. It leads to a shift into a higher state of being.
  8. As you learn more about love, you accept the human state of duality.You know the state of love shifts from one duality into another. Life provides the opportunity to shift sadness into happiness or loneliness to love, but you learn to rely on the beauty of your heart to bring you back into center–where the universe abides.

 

NOTE: Everyone has moments of “not” feeling love. This can be useful if you are willing to see these dark places and moments as points, which offer the potential for change and growth. (Accept this as the part of you that longs for change, and send light to the feelings. Assume you have the ability to change the circumstances, thoughts, and feelings, which are associated with this state.)

Moving Out of Fear and Into Love

Image by Tamara Halabarec

 

There are actually good reasons for feeling fear. First of all, we always feel fear when we act on the heart because the world teaches us to go in the opposite direction (away from the inner self.) The outer world of duality resists the motion of wholeness associated with finding the inner self.

Yet, nothing is as fulfilling as connecting with the inner self, and life changes when we live from the heart. We learn to identify the energy associated with our soul. We gain awareness of energy as a whole and learn how it resonates with us. We learn how to create our inner desires, find our gifts, and share them with others.

There are also other reasons for feeling fear. They involve mass consciousness, taking a leap in faith, listening to the heart (when it doesn’t make sense), trusting the universe, and resistance.

1) When we step into the light, it involves a leap. It means letting go of our current life and believing whatever appears will work. It’s not easy, and the ego often feels resistance (or fear) about taking a big step.

Take the first step and continue by repeating until it works or morphs into another form. You will find help; the universe will not abandon you.

2)  The outer world does not encourage the huge wave of awakening. When we expand into our inner self, we can receive a wave of fear from mass consciousness (the lower emotions of the world at large.)

If you focus on the inner self as often as possible, you will find a way to move through the resistance. (It’s not easy, but you can move through it by using your will and determination.)

3) Mass consciousness resists personal change. Mass consciousness is a compilation–or cloud of energy–based on the lowest emotions and thoughts on the planet. When we feel a lower emotion such as fear and/or anxiety, mass consciousness increases the lower feeling. It’s helpful to ask the universe to delete the connection with lower energies and align us with the inner self.

The universe responds when we ask for help. It hears us more easily if we ask often and meditate.

4)  When we step into love and the inner self, it means letting go of our current life and believing whatever appears will work. It’s not easy, and the ego often feels resistance (or fear) about taking a big step. It’s normal to feel afraid, uneasy, or agitated before taking a step, and we have to trust the universe. The universe always has a bigger, better plan.

Let go and trust. If you feel the light, it is leading you. Go forward!

5) It’s easier to feel fear about our destiny than it is to take a step. “Destiny’ is simply the soul’s path—the universe’s way of choosing experiences of teaching us to move into a higher place of being. It’s easiest to begin with a desire of the heart. Manifestation is the expression of an expanded vision of the beautiful and good aspects of self that originate in the heart.

Learn how to use tools such as visualization, positive thoughts, and the power of love.  Study angels, read books, and practice changing how you see your life. (There is a great network of “love”, which will support you.)

6) The pressure and feelings of fear will lessen when you decide to move in the direction of the soul. The pressure lessens as you listen and commit to your inner self. The relief is often immediate!

7) Moving into awakening can also bring feelings of uncertainty to the surface. While we may feel unhappy in our experience of “reality”, relinquishing control can feel difficult. We have expectations of how life should look and feel. 

Control comes from the ego. Allow your “reality” to rearrange itself in a new manner. It’s okay. The new reality will be much better.

8) When we step into intuition, it can take time to distinguish between the soul and ego—and to have a consistent feeling of direction. (This can feel frightening.) The inner self asks us to listen with the heart. It means following intuition or inner guidance as opposed to the voice of the outer world. This may feel strange or uncomfortable in the beginning. Often, the directions don’t make sense.

9) Over time, we learn to trust the inner voice and distinguish feelings and direction.After every leap, we trust the inner voice more. But it’s only in the area of the jump. There’s still more ground to cover.  We often feel the resistance of the lower self and the world, but it passes. Part of this occurs from learning to believe in the inner self, the true part of the self. (We also learn to believe in the universe’s ability to support us—or faith.)

Last Full Moon of the Decade

           Image by Josephine Walls

 

It’s the last full moon of the decade, and it appeared on 12/12 at 12:12 ET.  12 is the number of a cycle of completion in the material world; the next number is 13, which represents moving into the void of the unknown. (The void is an opening to discovery about the universe and the self. We use the information to create a new phase of life.)

This full moon cycle is supportive with many planets in earth, which provides grounding—as well as a good representation of where we stand at this time in life. The Sun is in Sagittarius, and it encourages generosity, happiness, and enlargement of lives. It’s particularly helpful when coupled with discipline and desire to move forward on the spiritual path.

Moon is Gemini, an air sign, and it encourages social events, exchange of information, and enhances communication.  Sun (life) and Moon (emotions) square Neptune (mysticism, illusion), causing cloudiness with obtaining intuitive information. (Lately, I’ve noticed many people focusing on the negative illusions in life as opposed to projecting positive truth from a calm state of mind.) Also, it’s okay if we can’t figure out what to do next; it’s part of the aspect.

The placement of the Sun, Moon, and aspects with Neptune show our current placement in life. Sun in Sagittarius beckons with expansion and emphasis on the inner spiritual journey. Moon in Gemini encourages quick conversations, mental distractions, and the desire to complete many tasks at once. Sun and Moon square Neptune cloud our ability to decipher the right direction and the “real” truth, but we can move through clouds of illusion by focusing on the heart.

Mercury (thought) is in Sagittarius, making the mind move faster and fire many thoughts at one time. It encourages creativity and self-expression. The placement is particularly helpful if we slow down and think about the more important aspects of life like love, caring, and the ability to help through visualization.

Venus (love) is in Capricorn, and love may be a bit cooler for the moment, but we can overcome it by projecting what we want to experience from others—and our capacity to share positive emotions and encouragement. Venus conjuncts (close to) Saturn (karma) in Capricorn gives the opportunity to build new structures and practices that help us to overcome karma. (For example, meditation, exercise, kindness, releasing old emotional patterns.)

Venus and Saturn conjunct (close to) Pluto (subconscious, transformation), which gives the power to pull off transformation. Together, it’s a powerful combination. Saturn can pull us through karma by teaching us to change our approach and find more strength and discipline. Venus teaches us that love for self is a powerful way of altering habits and patterns.

Mars (male energy, assertion) is well placed in Scorpio. It increases our strength, will power, and overall wellbeing, it gives the ability to move through the darkness of obstacles and stay fixed on our inner path. Mars trines (harmonious) Neptune (illusion, mysticism), heightening our inner vision and intuition.

Jupiter (good fortune) trines Uranus (quantum field, sudden change), giving good luck, innovation, and the ability to combine the old and new worlds. Uranus prefers innovation and new approaches to life. Their combined energy is harmonious and beneficial.

Summary:

  • As we move more deeply into the New Age, we’re asked to focus on the inner self and expand our journey into wisdom and true knowing. There are many distractions, and we continue to feel the chaos as indicated by Moon in Gemini and Sun/Moon square Neptune (mysticism, illusion). (We can’t see through the illusion, but we can take the next step on our path.)
  • It’s important to use our minds to communicate our knowledge and ideas. We can create expansion in our lives through expression—if we stay focused.
  • Venus and Saturn in Capricorn ask us to examine our habits, perceptions, and life direction to make changes through love and discernment. It’s time to actively pursue the soul and its preferred path. Both planets conjunct Pluto (transformation), which can give strength and power in rebuilding our lives.
  • Mars is powerful in Scorpio. Our willpower is strengthened in this placement.
  • In spiritual work, we continually combine the “old” self of the past and the new self of our dreams and desires. Jupiter trine Uranus boosts our ability to redefine ourselves in an innovative manner.

Lovely New Moon!

 

Everything in our universe exudes energy, and the planets emit frequencies that alter how we perceive and feel energy. The New Moon, which appears on Tuesday, November 26, brings a great deal of harmonious and beneficial energy. The lovely “weather” continues through December 2nd, and we’ll continue to feel similar benefits through the first part of December.

The New Moon is time of receptivity when it’s best to take a day for quiet plans and inner contemplation. A day or two after the New Moon is the best time to move forward as the waxing moon energizes our efforts.

Sun (life) and Moon (emotions, yin) are placed in Sagittarius, a fire sign that brings optimism and opportunity, encouraging opportunity and expansion. Venus (love, money, partnerships) and Jupiter (expansion, good fortune) are in Sagittarius, and they conjunct (close to) Galactic Center, which is the center of the Milky Way.

Galactic Center could represent the akasha or fifth element—the place of light, love, and divine intervention. The fifth element (akasha) holds the invisible spiritual form, which becomes apparent as we move into the light and conscious of love. Our understanding of this beautiful element expands through spiritual growth. (in metaphysics, it is one of the mysteries, which becomes clear as we proceed on the path.)

Venus represents love, warmth, and openness, but she recently moved into Capricorn, which has tighter, cooler vibrations. Venus in Capricorn can limit emotional and financial expression. It’s not a perfect holiday vibration, but we can move into warmth and abundance with extra effort.

Venus trines (harmonious) Uranus (sudden change, quantum field), increasing our ability to love on an universal level—and feel pleasantly happy with others. Jupiter (good fortune, expansion) trines Uranus (sudden change, quantum field), which helps with integrating the old and new aspects of our personal lives. (Two strong aspects with Uranus can encourage personal freedom and independence.)

Mercury (thought, communications) and Mars (physical action, male energy) sit in Scorpio, stirring up old emotions and hidden truths. Scorpio is all about what lies beneath the surface—like why you felt oddly at a party or that feeling of anxiety, which accompanies a pattern. (There’s a truth beneath the thoughts and feelings, and Mercury and Mars in Scorpio bring hidden feelings to the surface.) The two planets are conjunct, heightening the tension.

Mercury (thought, communication) trines Neptune (mysticism, illusion), which encourages insight through spiritual perception. Mars (assertion, male) opposes Uranus (sudden change, quantum field). The opposition can create upset if we act on anger and/or lower emotions without thought or focus.

Saturn (limitation) in Capricorn conjuncts Pluto (underworld), which marks the beginning of a cycle of hard work and patience. (This aspect won’t move into direct position until January 2020.)

Notes:

  • It’s a wonderful forecast that can bring illumination and a definite love vibration into play. We’re absorbing this energy, and it’s helping on our path—regardless of whether we feel it or not.
  • The Jupiter influence is strong in the chart. Jupiter, planet of good fortune and growth, rules Sagittarius. Sun, Moon, and Jupiter are placed in Sagittarius, encouraging expansion, moving forward and spiritual growth.
  • If our emotions feel cloudy, confused, or intense, it’s because of Mercury (mind) and Mars (action, male energy) in Scorpio. We’re feeling the thought patterns, which are generated by the subconscious. These two planets ask us to explore the patterns and understand the energies beneath them.
  • It’s important to continue working on goals and dreams despite the dreamy, positive weather. Sometimes, spiritual work is incredibly important when all is going well. Many planets with positive feelings can slow down our inner work.
  • Watch the tendency to overspend, give to much, or become lost in festivities.

Full Moon Forecast

The Full Moon appears on Tuesday, November 12 at 8:34 am. Full Moons bring emotional intensity, heightened energy, and fruition of desires and dreams.

While the chart is powerful and supportive, retrograde Mercury crossed the Sun on 11/11, which altered our thoughts and energies. (It will take time to understand the new knowledge, gifted from the Sun.) 

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.

Moon (emotions) and Mercury (thought) are in opposition, causing conflict between emotions and thoughts. Moon in Scorpio brings hidden emotions to surface, which may override old thoughts about “comfortable” aspects of life. This aspect definitely causes tension in relationships and life.

Sun (life) and Mercury (thought, communication) sextile (positive) Saturn (karma, time), bringing stability and security to the chart. Moon (emotion) trines (harmonious) Saturn, balancing emotion with practical concepts.  Sun and Mercury trine Neptune (illusion, mysticism), and this allows opening our lives and thoughts to divine guidance. Moon trines Neptune, which can lift emotions to a more spiritual level. Venus (love) squares Neptune (illusion, mysticism), and the square can cause misconceptions about love, but it can also open our eyes to beauty.

Jupiter (good fortune, expansion) conjuncts Galactic Center, the point of light, love, and higher knowledge in our universe. Galactic Center is in the center of the Milky Way; it radiates aspiration, energy, and motivation. This placement offers an intense but wonderful wave with the intent of higher evolution and expansion.

Sun (life), Mercury (communications), and Neptune (illusion, mysticism) sextile Pluto (subconscious, transformation), which can bestow the will and resourcefulness to make and/or intend powerful changes. Moon (emotion) trines Pluto (subconscious, transformation), heightening sensitivity.

Mars (action, energy) in Libra sextiles Jupiter, which heightens strength and good fortune. Mars squares Saturn (karma, time), indicating the need to review the past and the cycle of time before taking big actions or making huge plans. Mars opposes Uranus (sudden change, transformation), reinforcing the need to move slowly and think clearly—specifically with actions. (in short, continue with long term plans but wait with new ones.)

 Jupiter squares (tension) Neptune, which can dampen hopefulness and optimism. (The lesson is about finding hope and faith within!)

Tips:

  • Retrograde Mercury in Scorpio crossed the Sun on Monday. Although it aligns us with the higher mind, we can’t process the information until Mercury moves direct. Hold onto your brightest thoughts and ideas. Put them into form when Mercury moves direct. (Moon opposes Mercury, scrambling emotions and thoughts.)
  • There are MANY helpful aspects with Sun, Moon, and Mercury (life, emotions, and thought). Aspects with Saturn ground emotions and thoughts with practicality and planning. Aspects with Neptune open the consciousness to intuition and the mystical world. Aspects with Pluto give strength, will power, and the desire to transmute life into a higher form.
  • Mars (action) remains a bit blocked with frustrating aspects to Saturn and Uranus. It’s fine to act on well laid plans, but it’s important not to act impulsively.
  • Jupiter (good fortune, expansion) conjuncts Galactic Center. It’s a wonderful time to mediate and ask for alignment with light.
