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.

The Wolves and Their Message

We come with the message that the New Time is beginning. While it has existed for some time in the invisible world, it is beginning to take place on your planet. The particles of matter are changing as they become more receptive to higher thought and spiritual impetus.

Think of the particles of anything at all. The particles of matter vibrate with sound, light, and density. When the energies are higher, they move with the waves of light, peace, and other positive frequencies.

At the moment, they are unsettled, which explains some of the confusion on your planet. You may experience an intermingling of frequencies—both high and low—causing your personal energy to soar and fall. At these times, it is helpful to think of the world, which is written into each of you as a blueprint or diagram of the most beautiful life that you can imagine.

The higher imaginings are not there for everyone. You must have a true heart, courage, and the desire to follow your inner self. It is only through the inner self that you can perceive this network of changes that involves the earth itself, inner senses such as telepathy and clairvoyance. Through these higher skills, you will find the bridge between the old and the new.

In the old, there are parts of you that know the song and the vision of this time. In the new, there are parts that must discover aspects of the unknown so that all “real” parts of you are woven together into a new whole.

If you wonder what we speak of, look at the stars, hear the rhythm of time, and imagine beautiful places that you love. Think of moments of joy and strength. Think of moments when it seemed the world opened to you. (There are cosmic waves that will meet these memories—and lift you into a new point of being.)

How do we move across the bridge into higher vibrations?

As you always have but with focus on higher emotions and thoughts, by asking for experiences that reveal your power and strength. We do not mean challenges; we mean opportunities of expressing inner talents and abilities. When you do this, there is a higher wave, which will lift you above your struggles and old perceptions.

You can find the bridge through nature, by listening to the birds or wind, or by asking the earth to help. Answers also come through meditation. You can meditate on what your inner self wants, but you will have to visualize or take a step. How can you know if it’s working, otherwise?

You can watch the stars at night. In the place of loneliness, ask for the presence of the universe. Feel it connect with you and feel the earth take your heaviness –and replace it with comfort and love.

You can also see yourself as we do. We, the wolves, see the seekers as powerful, gifted beings of light who are only beginning to remember their true presence. You are far more powerful than you think, and you transcend this world when you remember who you truly are.

You may wonder why it takes time, why you become tired, or how long you have to wait. For everyone, there is a slightly, different answer. Part of the answer is knowing there are parts of your nature that you still have to overcome. The other part of knowing is finding balance for you.

What is the best way to move into balance?

Balance is different for every being and species on the earth. Sometimes, wolves sleep for days or hunt for days and nights. Sometimes, we gorge, and at other times, we fast.

Part of our rhythm comes from nature—and part from our own being. Very few people on the earth can sense their inner rhythm and create a life to go with it. How do you balance tiredness and activity? How do you eat and sleep? Who brings tiredness and who gives energy?

There are large waves of cosmic energy at this time that rewrite your energy field. They can bring periods of tiredness, excitement, or delight. When you are balanced, your energy field begins to stabilize.

When it stabilizes, you feel rested. Anxiety ceases, and you find a harmonious point of integration. The information, received earlier through higher consciousness, is integrated. The world speaks to you with harmony, and you “know” what to do as well as the right rhythm for you.

At this point, procrastination can become an example of waiting for a rhythm, taking time to dream, or simply waiting for the right point in time to lift you into a different frequency.

How do you find the right frequency?

The right frequency is found by believing in yourself and your dreams. It is found by having faith and repeating actions and thoughts that come from the true self. It comes from seeking the right direction and acting on it. It increases by moving in that direction and investing in it.

Over time, you find that this is a specific energy. By seeking and becoming the energy, you create the needed change. It’s very simple but requires practice.

Autumn Message from the Wolves

My spirit journeys frequently to the wolves, to their odyssey of sight and sound, and their secret messages that they share at particular times of the moon. This message is for you and others like you who wish to grow.

Our voices come on the wind, traveling around the planet through time and space. The great whales and dolphins capture the sound, repeating it through the water until it resonates in the heart of those who can hear.

Later, the sound travels through the branches of trees and throughout the density of the earth. It is an old and new song, which tells the stories of beautiful moments of the past and awakens future possibilities. You hear it in special moments when the world is still. Perhaps, the sun shines on you, the wind carries the smell of childhood, or the earth wraps you in her harmony.

It is also the song of the coming time when all will change. You feel the changes now through the undulating rhythm of the light, which alternately exhausts and energizes you. It is a wonderful, challenging time when everyone and every living being is asked to find the dreams in their heart and bring them into fruition. Perhaps, you already know it—or you do now.

At any time, you can draw energy from the earth. Think of the trees as your lungs, the water as your blood, fire as your spirit, and the earth as your outer structure.

The invisible world or the akasha holds secrets, but it is also the substance that you impress with your hopes and dreams. It responds to you and to us–it is a way of making changes through your spirit and mind. It is also a pool of endless energy when approached with a pure heart. Energy is the source of positive change, the flow of life force.

The earth energies are changing as well as the geography of the planet. The light moves to new points, old lines are recharging, and energy coalesces in new places. In the new energy, much is changing. (Species are changing and coming back; the geological plates are moving very slowly.)

Nature reflects our feelings and internal states.  We can see the reflection of group emotion in nature. Rain and thunder storms often cool emotion, and the wind pushes it away. Earthquakes allow pressure to escape. Frozen landscapes give time for reflection and rest by limiting activity. Few of us take time to truly interact with nature by listening to her song or even partaking of her fruits. 

Crossing the Bridge of Consciousness

There is a bridge between this world and the next. In the next world, the energy is lighter and more balanced with less pull of old negativity. You cross the bridge through intuition by listening to the true self and by hearing the language of your heart.

Intuition comes in a flash, connecting you to a higher world where everything behaves differently—and larger changes take place. It creates a bridge from this world to next by leading your feelings and thoughts into a higher point.

Over time, your feelings and thoughts change; they alter your beliefs. And the intuition comes more strongly, leading you into a new place. In the space of intuition, you can know many things such as what others thinking, the flow of the energy at large, and how the trees are moving—or how your destiny intertwines with the next world. (You already know these things It’s is simply about awakening to your knowledge.)

It is time for bravery and courage. It’s time to take a step into the new world—to grow and learn–and know we are sending energy to help you find your way.

Conscious Change

Begin with a strong feeling of fortitude. You can do this. Now, create an image of living in the desired reality. Do something in the reality. Listen to song, dance around the room, enjoy your new “person”, plan a trip, or count your money. Smile and focus on a joyous feeling after completing the meditation. Everything is working for you.

Meditate for a few minutes every day. Connect with the universe and connect with your heart. Make sure your vision is leading you in the right direction. If so, take connection deeper.

Take one small action every day—preferably around 5-10 minutes for the first week. You can add time during the following week. Presumably, you’re working in a specific direction, so choose a task that will lead you to change. (Maybe, it’s staying calmer when your work needs a lot of focus or energy. It could revolve around exercise and diet. In this case, add a healthy meal or snack and add 10 minutes of exercise.) Compliment yourself for making the effort. (You rock, right?)

Patterns of old behavior and avoidance will always surface, particularly when you’re changing your life through spiritual work. It’s how you rewrite the energy of the ego that loves the old patterns and comfort zone. To change your feelings, you must rewrite your thoughts and emotions. (Thoughts and feelings can come from other people, past lives, or childhood. Often, they are not real. Observe, wait, and consider rewriting your feelings. How would you feel if you didn’t react or changed your behavior? Often, the answer is “free”.)

Discern between the heart and the outer self. When making a decision or choice, ask if the answer comes from the inner self (heart) or the outer self. It takes time to read answers correctly, and it’s helpful to notice when the answers are almost always correct. (You will usually have “areas” that are more advanced than others.)

It’s very helpful to remember the most important reason for the work lies in seeking awakening—the lovely feeling of connection with the universe, the rush of intuition, and the alignment of the soul with the physical world. Yes, you can create a whole, new reality, but you also create a better connection with who you truly are—the most beautiful and light qualities of yourself.

Finding Peace in a Changing World

Metaphysics suggests finding answers within the self. The peace and calm, which come from the inner self, radiate outward into our lives–and into the lives of everyone around us. We move into this space through meditation and self-reflection; this takes us into the “inner” or spiritual world.The outer world–-or physical reality–-is chaotic. If we interact with it for a long period of time (or with negativity), we lose our connection. This happens to everyone from time to time, but it’s important to reconnect quickly.

Here are a few tips. They are all examples of moving into the “light.”

1) Align through meditation on a daily basis. It helps in creating greater emotional and mental awareness. Everyone sends energy through thoughts and emotions. As you become more aware, you send less negative thoughts and more positive ones. (A positive thought is based on love or a pleasant emotion.)

2) Visualize and see a better, more peaceful world for everyone–particularly when you gain awareness of a “negative.” See the poor as well fed and employed. See health in place of illness and peace instead of conflict. Visualize the opposite of what you see and feel in your life. Imagine solutions.

3) Refuse to descend into negative emotion. Lower emotions such as fear or anger are contagious. Other people feel these emotions and react. Take five minutes and meditate. Think about the goodness in life. Express gratitude.

4) Take time each day to nourish your soul. Vary the experience between external (time spent with friends) and internal (art, exercise, or time in nature.) Explore the experience and expand. Expansion in the inner and outer life lead to positive contemplation and change.

5) Believe and have faith in a better world. Faith is part of the creation process; it involves believing in universal power, the power of good, and positive outcomes. Move into new possibilities about the future. Visualize and focus on the possibility of good.

NOTE: Personally, I pull back into my heart center. I also make an effort to stay centered without moving up or down about the state of the world. From this place, I send light to both sides (the victims and the perpetrators.)

I also like to listen to The Great Bell Chant (The End of Suffering)  Mantras are magical sounds, which lift our consciousness. As I listen, I imagine a world without conflict, suffering, or poverty. I ask what it would feel like if everyone lived in harmony. At this point, my consciousness lifts. (If I stay with the world current, my energy tends to become lower. If I meditate above it, I can visualize and send positive energy.)

New Moon Forecast

Image by Tamara Adams

While the forecast shows positive conditions (with many planets in direct position), there is potential for growth. Growth and change often involve looking at life from two or more perspectives–and making a choice. 

Choices lead us away from or into the inner self, and there are several planetary aspects, which emphasize the inner struggle. It can feel tiring and exciting when we pass through the chasm of realization. It’s helpful to know the planetary purpose is to (ultimately) help us to evolve.

The New Moon appears on Saturday, September 28. It’s not surprising that the New Moon Chart emphasizes personal development achieved through understanding the past (including past lives) and clearing karma.

Sun (life), Moon (emotions), Mercury (communication), and Venus (love, partnerships) are placed in the Libra, the sign of balance and beauty. Libra is ruled by Venus. Its influence awakens our desire for beauty, socializing, and experiencing the world from a balanced perspective. However, we’re asked to consider and release influences of the past, which can include karma and patterns that keep us from our full potential.

Releasing the past is presented as Sun, Moon, Mercury, and Venus square (tension, pressure) Saturn, the ruler of time. Aspects with often Saturn ask for discipline and devotion. With these squares, we find a different type of message. We’re asked to identity patterns of limitation from the past and find greater freedom of expression of the inner self. (Actually, it’s occurring for everyone on the spiritual path; the planets make it more obvious.)

Mars (action) in Virgo tends to stay fixed on detail. Sun and Moon conjunct (close to) Mars, which can help with focus and direction. Mars squares Jupiter (good fortune), creating frustration with plans and desires. Mars opposes Neptune, and it can bring dreaminess and/or confusion.

Jupiter (good fortune) squares (tension) Neptune (mysticism, illusion). The mixture of energies can cause lack of self-confidence and temporary loss of faith in self. It’s a temporary influence that can be overcome by recalling the abilities of the inner self—and aligning with the universe.

Overall, we’ll have moments of pure connection with the beauty of life, enjoy social or spiritual group interactions, and seek balance. The planets continue to push us forward. We’ll also experience flashes of the past, the re-emergence of patterns from the past, and encounter the feelings and thoughts associated with events in our past.

As we move into the light, we continue the process of attaining deeper understanding while releasing, and rewriting the past. In the void of the New Moon, we can recreate ourselves in a more balanced, beautiful form.

Tips:

  1. We’re moving into beauty and connection with the soul. The planets intensify the process of examining and releasing karma, and the influence of time. As we work through patterns, it’s also important to embrace the lovely moments of the past as they are reflections of the inner self.
  2. Motion in our lives appears as an on/off flow. Direct planets aid our forward motion; squares with Saturn and aspects with Neptune can throw us off course. The detours are of some importance. They teach about illusion and obstacles on our path.
  3. As we release patterns and embrace our inner self, we’re creating a new image of the self.
  4. There will be moments of discouragement, discontent, and strong emotions of the past, but they will pass. We have the tools and insights to work through them.

Shifting Upward

Shifting upward into a higher state of being is both a desire and a choice. When we shift upward, we can move out of lower patterns and feelings. We can receive more light and allow life to move into a flow that provides answers and insights.

When you practice this exercise, you are aligning with your evolved self, the self of the future, who already knows how to make these changes. By simply listening, tuning in, and thinking about it, you’re moving into this state of consciousness.

A Magical, Feminine Full Moon

Image by Hasui Kawase

A particularly feminine Full  Harvest Moon appears on Friday, September 13–except on the east coast where it becomes full just after midnight. In ancient times, Friday was ruled by the Goddess Venus, bringing blessings of love and abundance, and the number 13 marked the end of a cycle of completion. It referred to the void of new beginnings.

 It’s a super moon, meaning it’s close to the earth, bringing more influence and intensity than usual.  Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Saturn, Uranus, and Pluto are all in feminine signs. It is an excellent chart for transformation, but there are also challenges, which are probably part of our group evolution.

Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Saturn, Uranus, and Pluto are all in feminine signs. Sun (life), Mercury (mind, communications), Venus (feminine love), and Mars (male, action) are in Virgo, an earth sign with an emphasis on order, detail, and completing tasks. The Moon (emotions) is in Pisces and opposed by the Sun. The Moon and Neptune are in opposition to Mercury, Venus, and Mars. In short, we’ll receive waves of floating and confusing energy periodically, which will “read” as conflicting emotions. (A T-square intensifies conflicting feelings.)

Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Mars bring strength with their trines with Pluto (underworld, transformation). The chart gives the strength to transform our life in a positive direction—if we are courageous and intent on our goal.

Sun (life) and (Mars) trine Saturn (karma, limitation, lessons of time), and the harmonious aspects give determination and structure to our pursuits. If we remain focused on improving our lives and taking right action, Saturn offers a good deal of support. (Saturn is direct now, and we moving from unresolved karma into a new start.)

Squares with Jupiter (expansion, growth) can act as a catalyst to heighten our efforts in the direction of our desires—or it can cause us to overestimate our abilities to fulfill them. (Sun (life), Moon (emotions), and Mars (action) square Jupiter.)

The most challenging aspect of the chart is a T-square between Sun Mercury, Venus, and Mars in Virgo, Jupiter (expansion) in Sagittarius, and Moon/Neptune (mysticism, illusion). Together, the planets throw a veil of illusion (or confusion) over our path, making it difficult to discern the right direction and/or outcome at the moment. T-squares also give a feeling of pressure and intensity.

In short, Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Mars compel us to move forward in our lives. Jupiter (expansion) encourages us but has a tendency to overlook the amount of work. Moon and Neptune are Pisces, the ruler of the past age.

As we move through the remaining illusions (Moon, Neptune) of the Age of Pisces, we embrace the opportunity of building a new life, based on spiritual concepts in the physical world.  If we are practical, the planets help with this expansion, but it always requires inner guidance (true self) and universal connection to traverse the spiritual path.

Tips:

  1. Whenever possible, stay on your chosen path. Complete projects that align with the heart or your path in life.
  2. Resist distractions and odd emotions. Many aspects with Moon offer emotional upsets, rapid change in mood, and fluctuating emotions. (It’s only temporary.)
  3. Aspects with Jupiter and Pluto push us into a phase of expansion and transformation. It’s important to stay on task. Resist distractions.
  4. T-square between Sun/Mercury/Venus/Mars and the Moon/Neptune and Jupiter can cause disruptions and make it difficult to find our focus.
  5. Neptune offers an illusory flavor to the chart. It’s another opportunity to navigate into new world transformation by relying on intuition and the inner self.
