Awakening: The Collective Initiative

Painting by Doug Gobel

 

 

It’s a special time for awakening. The Precession of Ages, a 26,000 year cycle, along with the turning cycle from Pisces to Aquarius, offers a rare influx of light.  Imagine a wheel with spokes. When the spokes are partially closed, we receive a small amount of light. When the spokes are open, the light flows out.

There is an acceleration of time, an amplification of emotion, and a collective energy, which becomes more apparent with the passage of time. The collective awakening occurs among people who understand the workings of light or have an open heart. When the light level of this group grows, it is literally radiated out to the world at large.

For those who are experiencing the dispensation of light (consciously), there is a growing awareness of the ego’s internal dialog, the power of light, the collective energy of negative thought, and an understanding of how our personal problems apply to group or world karma. For many, there is a need to retreat from media, crowded locations, and large groups—particularly as we become more attuned on a soul level.

The “shift” amplifies emotions and sensations. We may feel surprised by the depth of our emotions or delighted by our connection with nature. We may find that many of our emotions are hidden beneath social responses. As we drop the mask formed by societal interaction, we find many feelings from adolescence or childhood beneath the surface. It’s part of the clearing of old energies from the earth, which are displaced by the new light.

There is also an increasing desire to connect with others who have light and speak positively about life. Many people are becoming more aware of their ability to act as an active creator in life. We understand how every thought or emotion emits a wave—and how the wave spreads through many minds. We are learning how to respond to life with positive visualizations and love as opposed to anger or hate against those who choose to create global problems. We’re also learning to visualize and “feel” solutions on the inner plane.

The exciting part of the shift lies in its possibility for finding our power as co-creators. When it becomes necessary to visualize, meditate or observe the self to navigate through life, we quickly develop our skills. For example, if we learn to see life differently and positively, the probability of positively changing our lives and the planet escalates dramatically.

When meditating through spiritual connection on a positive visualization, we automatically hold the frequency for a particular outcome. The current amplification of thought, emotion, and visualization distributes the frequency to anyone who wishes to create a similar reality. Most people with a devoted practice learn the value of sending light to others, projects and world problems because we develop a sincere desire to help.

Sending light and seeing the world differently are probably among the strongest tools to create active change. Let’s look at a few personal examples. We can envision projects completed quickly and correctly; we can see success for ourselves and our friends. We can imagine an ample supply of anything we need (including money.) All of these states, when practiced with connection, benefit the world because we essentially “send out” the vibration.

A few general examples might include seeing those who are ill as healthy, the poverty stricken as abundant, and joy in place of sadness. On a global level, we can take several moments each day to see the world with clean water, air and transportation or a fair government.

We can spend our time citing injustices and feeling fear, or we can spend our time creating a new and beautiful world. Like everything, it’s a choice. We can spend five minutes criticizing the government or envisioning a better world. The state of the inner self always depends on the choice of placement of consciousness (as does the outer world.)

As we come to understand the process of manifestation, it becomes easier to focus on positive thoughts/feelings, and “reality” responds more harmoniously.  On the positive side, the world is filled with light workers who are adept at raising their vibration and can quickly change reality by altering their thoughts/feelings or saying a simple prayer.

Connection

 Notice the flow. When the physical self is connected with the soul, we experience the true self. When we connect with the inner presence, we connect with the universe and unlimited possibility. When we connect with our heart’s desires, we create them. We also send the frequency of a manifested desire to others who hold light. Light and love connect everything in our universe. When we realize the connection, we awaken.

Connection occurs through universal energy. Often, the sunlight will intensify, or light shines through the clouds. There is grace, love, and positivity in this state. Also, we receive “feelings” that are higher and more supportive than our usual state. If we move into the feelings, we live in a different, more enlightened way.

The feelings are clues about the sensation and emotion, which are connected to a manifestation. When we align with the feelings, life begins to change. If we follow our feelings into action, we create a better personal and global reality.

Full Moon Forecast: Intensity and Change

 

 

The Full Moon appears on Thursday, January 28 with erratic, intense energy. An emphasis on Uranian (and Aquarian) energy indicates “certain” change, which could include awakening, difficulties, or a change in the direction of life. On a personal level, it can reflect the placement of higher consciousness and/or subconscious desires and thoughts. (The energies remain throughout February, but they are at their height during the full moon.)

The full moon chart tends to exacerbate tension, anger, stubbornness, and a fixed mind. Conversely, there are beautiful qualities that can open consciousness to the soul and reveal the power of love in creating personal/global transformation. It’s important to comprehend both sides of the equation.

There are many aspects in the chart with Uranus (sudden change, quantum field) in Taurus, an earth sign, which symbolizes the beauty of the spring and a time of growth—as well as conflicting energies from planets in Aquarius throughout February.  What does it mean?

Aquarius is symbolized as a star man or woman pouring water from a pitcher on the earth. In metaphysics, water is love, the stars represent the universe, and it’s partially about how an individual’s state of universal affects and helps the planet. Love rules the element of fire; it elevates passion and connects with the heart. The element of earth is missing from the glyph. (Alchemy teaches us to pay attention to missing elements in a symbolic message.)

When many planets in Aquarius square Uranus, which is placed in earth, they contact the element and deliver a message. Humanitarian ideals and higher thoughts are fabulous, but they must have a connection with the earth. After expressing an idea, it needs to take form in matter (earth) in a harmonious way. (The earth is our mother, who nourishes us, transmutes negative energy, and creates beauty in physical form.) It may also act as indication of the need to reconnect with earth on a collective level.

Sun (life), Mercury (communication), Jupiter (expansion), and Saturn (karma, limitation) are placed in Aquarius. The sign of Aquarius is associated with the group mind and understanding how an individual’s energy and thoughts relate to the whole of humanity. It’s associated with spontaneity, unpredictability, and visionary qualities. Ruled by air, it encompasses higher thought and action.

Sun (life) square Uranus (sudden change) often feels like a period of uncertainty It can heighten the ego. It tends to bring period of unpredictable changes. It can also open the consciousness to the richness of the inner self and present opportunities for growth. There may be an urge to do things differently or find one’s own way of moving through life.

Sun (life) conjunct Jupiter (expansion) is a very lovely aspect. It brings optimism, energy, and positive energy into our lives. It’s often a time of receiving approval from others in our lives—and the universe. It expands Self-confidence, assertion, good luck, and heightens aspirations. The aspect also opens our mind to humanitarian issues and growth. However, it’s important to remember that expansion and optimism can also lead to indulgence in spending, eating, and pushing too hard/too fast with decision making and goals. Sun (life) conjunct Saturn (limitation) is somewhat the opposite. It is limiting and can inhibit positive emotion and self-esteem. It can also increase introversion

Moon (emotions) square Mars (assertion, male) heightens emotions and passion as well as stubbornness and the need to compete. It’s a good aspect—if we remember to use good judgement and think about other people and/or outcomes. (Feeling stubborn is not all bad. Sometimes, it’s needed to stay on the spiritual path.) Moon (emotion) square Uranus (sudden change, quantum field) brings increased, erratic emotion along with a desire for new experiences. Heightened and unstable emotion can obviously lead to conflict. It’s important to remember new experiences can be simple ones in the time of COVID—a drive to a new park, a long drive to a beautiful place, or a wonderful take-out meal.

Moon (emotion) opposes Jupiter (expansion). Jupiter can expand emotional connections and help with expression. The aspect can also cause extravagance. Moon in opposition to Saturn (limitation, karma) can cause inhibition and the desire to withdraw from life.

Mercury (communications, mind) will move into retrograde on January 30. It will likely feel intense because of its placement in an air sign. Mercury rules air, many planets are in an air sign, and Mercury will move in the opposite direction of those planets. It is a time to refrain from action, and it may give time for rest and review.

Venus (love, partnerships) is placed in Capricorn, an earth sign. Venus conjuncts (close to) Saturn inhibits expression of love and can give the need to withdraw from friends and family. Venus conjunct Pluto (underworld, transformation) can expand obsessive or jealous feelings.  However, it can teach about the potential of moving so deeply into love (and universal love) that we find a pathway for transformation on a personal and soul level.

Mars (action, male) in Aquarius continues with its wild ways.  It stirs up anger, tension, and frustration. Mars squares Jupiter (expansion), brings increased energy and the desire to succeed. It can also cause impulsiveness, which causes incorrect action. Mars square Saturn (limitation, karma) can cause frustration and anger. (It’s helpful to focus on the inner self, discipline, and patience.) Mars conjunct (close to) Uranus (sudden change, quantum field) often brings sudden, unexpected change; it can also ignite anger and frustration into negative action.

Jupiter (expansion) and Saturn (limitation) conjunct (close to) Uranus, which can create additional change, particularly when many other planets are in aspect with it. Expect the unexpected and stay centered and aligned is the best advice for this moment in time.

Saturn (limitation, karma) is moving away from its conjunction with Pluto (underworld, transformation), which should help in decreasing the cases of the world pandemic—or allow solutions to become more available as time passes.

Here are a few tips.

  • Many aspects in the chart are contradictory such as Sun conjunct Jupiter, which creates expansion and optimism, and Sun conjunct Saturn, which expands a need to withdraw and amplifies inhibited feelings. On the path of the soul, we travel through many similar contradictions in our personal nature. It’s simply another way of learning to address two opposites at various times.
  • Many aspects with Uranus can lead to greater consciousness or the confusion of change, based on fixed ideas and insistence on being “right”. It’s important to stay flexible and use the aspects as an opportunity to explore close mindedness. There’s also a wonderful opportunity to move into greater discovery of the universe and its principles.
  • Venus (love) conjunct Pluto (underworld, transformation) offers an opportunity to move into cosmic love on a deeper level.
  • Mercury (thought, mind) moves into retrograde on January 30, and it will likely affect electronic devices—and add to the current sense of chaos.
  • Uranus in Taurus indicate a need to focus on the earth and find a greater connection with her energy. Also, the earth provides stability and grounding for the body when we cannot find it in the collective energies. Stay calm and centered.
  • Mars (action, male) is somewhat like a crazy warrior without a cause. It’s angry, frustrated, and wants to strike out. However, we’ve evolving—and (maybe) we know better.
  • With many planets in Aquarius, it’s a good time to open the mind to humanitarian values and ponder a better future. Aquarius provides new, innovative ideas with a touch of genius.

Creating Our Reality

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

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

Message from the Wolves: Aligning with Intention

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

New Moon Forecast

The New Moon appears on July 20 at 7:29 pm ET. It is the beginning of a new cycle, which follows a season of eclipses. Eclipses tend to stir up karma as well as awakening gifts and creating internal change. It also marks the turning of the year into the last half of the season when life heightens and diminishes as we move in the direction of harvest.

It’s an interesting forecast with a repeat of many aspects from the previous forecast. Fortunately, there’s not an eclipse, and Mercury (communications) is direct. When a chart repeats with a few positive changes, it offers the opportunity to break a karmic cycle through conscious awareness. When a cycle reappears in life or the planet (with a few improvements), it’s a sign of personal/cosmic growth. We may revisit the cycle, but we have more tools and awareness. (Also, the New Moon is quieter on an energetic level, which denotes less input from mass consciousness. If we’re truly moving through karmic patterns, it’s a good thing!)

Four planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, and Pluto) are in retrograde, which can give a heavy feeling. (We are working against the tide when we’re active.) Jupiter (expansion), Saturn (limitation, karma), and Pluto (underworld, transformation) remain in the placement associated with the corona virus and altering structural change on a personal and global level.

Sun (life) and Moon (emotions) are in opposition to Jupiter (expansion) Saturn (karma), and Pluto (transformation, underworld). Both planets are placed in a water sign, denoting emotional involvement and heightened sensitivity. The sign of Cancer brings the energies of the Mother, the Sea, and the flow of emotion. We may strongly desire the pleasant of flow of emotion that comes from family, adventures on the water, and the exchange of positive feelings. However, the conjunction between Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto brings the need for isolation and reflection. We may move between the desire to continue with the safety of isolation and the desire to interact physically and emotionally with others. (I recommend using your intuition as a guideline–as everyone has exceptions to the rule.)

Sun (life) and Moon (emotions) trine Neptune (mysticism, illusion). A trine with Sun and Moon brings the likelihood of mystical insights, artistic expressions, and appreciation for the beauty of life. It can also enhance moments of relaxation and stillness with the soul. Neptune often speaks when our inner dialog is quiet, so take time for meditation and contemplation of the beauty of life. (It also heightens positive feelings and connection with the inner self.)

Mercury (communication) remains in Cancer, and it is wonderfully direct! Mercury squares (tension) Mars (male energy, assertion), which can create frustration and anger—and also delays. It may feel like Mercury is still in retrograde, but it’s frustrated emotion and lack of knowing how to make progress. (If you don’t feel it, you may experience it in the outer world. It can also take a few days after Mercury moves direct for electronics to behave!)

Venus is in Gemini, encouraging short trips, interaction with siblings, and social gatherings. Mercury rules the sign of Gemini, so we’ll continue to see meetings via the internet and phones. This placement can stimulate writing, communication from the heart, and self-expression. Venus sextiles Mars (action, male energy), which can make male/female interaction more harmonious. Venus squares (tension) Neptune (mysticism, illusion). Think of ultra-emotional sensitivity combined with the ability to see beauty and express feelings through art.

Mars in Aries loves move forward with independent action and heightened initiative, but it rarely stops to think through the impulse. (Mars will be in this position through November, so we have time to learn about this.)  It’s a wonderful position if we learn the lesson of not reacting or acting too quickly and forcefully, particularly if  the desire for resonates with the inner self. On the positive, it gives ease of movement with projects and plants, particularly if we’re willing to exchange frustration/anger for expression. Mars squares Jupiter bestows strength, enthusiasm, and vigor for life. It can also cause impulsive actions and a tendency to overdo with boundaries and issues. (If we tone down our energy around boundaries and causes, it’s a good aspect.) Mars conjuncts (close to) Chiron (wounded healer), which may give insights into the spaces where we tend not to take action—or do it poorly. It’s an opportunity for growth.

Jupiter (expansion), Saturn (limitation, karma), and Pluto (underworld, transformation) remain locked–and in conjunction throughout much of the year. The structure of life is changing, and we have to make our best effort to bring about positive change and act on higher intuition.

Uranus (sudden change, quantum field) in Taurus, an earth sign ruled by Venus. Since Uranus moved in Taurus, the frequency of earthquakes and volcanoes has increased. Judging from the light that I see emanating from the earth, many changes are underground—not yet appearing on the surface of life. (Manifestation is the same. We meditate, visualize, and feel an experience as real, but it takes weeks or months to surface.) For the time being, it’s a lovely mystery.

Neptune (mysticism, illusion) in Pisces rules the astral world of mass consciousness and lower/higher emotion.  As we grow spiritually and expand our vision and ability, we feel it more deeply. However, we can channel the energy into self-expression and growth by opening to Neptune’s mystical side.

The chart represents both growth and the need to review energies that have been present for a month of more. Mercury retrograde slowed our ability to move through obstacles, and it also gave time for rest and review. Now, it’s time to move through blocks, find our voices, and express our feelings in a positive, assertive way.  It takes time and work, but we are clearing karma—and moving forward on the path of light.

Full Moon Forecast: Intense Weather Ahead

The Full Moon appears on July 5 at 12:44 am ET, accompanied by an eclipse, the last in a series of three. The Full Moon is particularly potent with the presence of the eclipse, and it tends amplify whatever we think or feel. Think of all of the energies on the earth in a heightened state along with the growth and expansion associated with the Full Moon.

Fortunately, we’ve had practice with distancing ourselves from lower emotions and aligning with higher frequencies in past months. We’re probably ready for the reset that eclipses can bring.  However, it requires skill to deal with the energies in general, particularly the upset of those around us.  (A place of peace is a good beginning.) It’s important to stay in higher frequencies when possible as eclipses can raise our light level – if we receive the energy.

It’s a feminine chart with many placements in water and earth—an indication of the power of passive manifestations (seeing a desired outcome in the mind and watching it take form.) It’s a wonderful time to focus on manifestations and meditation. Five planets in retrograde (Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, and Pluto) tend to quiet the energies.

Sun (life) is in Cancer, a water sign represented by the crab—and the mother who rules the feminine and the sea. Moon (emotions) is in Capricorn, the earth sign that rules structure. Several strong influences run through the chart including Mercury (communications) in retrograde, Venus moved direct, making it easier to send love and light, and Mars (action) moved into Aries, which denotes forward movement.

Sun (life, self) conjuncts (close to) Mercury (communications), which opens the door to the higher self, which can find the truth and choose the right answer. Sun (life) opposes Jupiter (good fortune, expansion), creating a tendency to overindulge and become overly optimistic. It can also lead to overworking. Sun trines (harmonious) Neptune (idealism, mysticism), allowing an influx of mystical information and access to our inner muse.

Moon (emotions) opposes Mercury, increasing duality between emotion and thought—or the sensation of bouncing between the two forms of expression. Moon (emotion) trines Uranus (sudden change, quantum field).  This aspect helps in perceiving the unusual and intuitive abilities that are inherent within the self. It increases our intuitive feelings, opens our consciousness to exciting, new activities and/or happenings. It also allows greater perception of communication from the universe–and deeper understanding of the self. Moon (emotions) is conjunct (close to) Jupiter, and it’s  a wonderful aspect, increasing faith in inherent quality of goodness and encouraging our desire to help others on a global level.

Mercury is in retrograde, which confuses the flow of everyday life–a state that has become familiar. With Mercury in Cancer and the approach of the eclipse, emotions may feel intense. It’s good to remember that Mercury rules more than communications or the mind. It also rules intuition and the higher mind, which gives connection with universal energies. (We can go into our heart and connect to the higher mind when we truly need direction.) Mercury sextiles (positive) Uranus (quantum field, sudden change), and the aspect can give bursts of inner knowing and/or brilliant ideas.

Venus (love, partnerships, material wealth) is direct in Gemini, increasing harmony in relationships, success with business and money, and heightening appreciation of beauty. When Venus is direct, the world feels better and happier. Placed in Gemini, Venus helps with short-term travels, creating beauty and art through new ideas, and amplifying love. Venus trines (harmonious) Saturn (limitation, structure), and this helps in perceiving the “good” in others and concepts relating to rebuilding our lives on the basis of love.

Mars is in Aries, a fire sign, which helps in moving ahead in life, acting on projects, and developing physical strength and inner willpower. Mars conjuncts (close to) Chiron, the wounded healer, and the aspect brings the pain to the surface so we can see the truth and make changes. The aspect also helps in bringing our gifts to world to help and serve others. Sun (life), Moon (emotions), and Mercury (thought) square Mars, creating tension between the flow of the way we feel, think, and live and the desire to take action. We may need to move into new thoughts, perceive life in another sense, or create new habits of feeling emotion to take needed steps.

Jupiter (expansion), Saturn (limitation, structure), and Pluto (underworld, transformation) return to the conjunction in Capricorn, which began early in the year, marking on the onset of the corona virus and changes of structure in the outer world. However, the planets are in retrograde, which may contract the flow of energy. (Let’s see it happening.) Aspects with Pluto tend to reveal hidden truths, which are not comfortable, but they lead to evolution and transformation.

Tips:

  1. The energies will feel intense through July 4-6 when we’ll feel the combined energies of the Full Moon and the eclipse most. Use the energy to manifest a higher frequency and happier life. Spend time focusing on the sensation of the inner self.
  2.  The feminine energies in the chart heighten emotion, but they also ground and support our energy. It’s a good time to focus on passive manifestation, the art of visualizing what you want.
  3. There are many supportive aspects in the chart  Venus (love, material goods) direct helps with love and money, Sun conjunct Mercury increases the ability to tap into brilliant answers and ideas, Sun trine Neptune links the consciousness to mystical information, and Mars in Aries wants us to move ahead with our plans.
  4. Admittedly, there are perplexing aspects. Mercury is retrograde, causing mild chaos and disorderly thoughts. Our emotions and thoughts can feel contradictory. Our habits and way of life may frustrate efforts in expression of thoughts and action.  Sun opposition Jupiter expands our need to overdo. Nevertheless, there are good aspects that open the mind to divine inspiration and higher realization.
  5. In 2020, we seem to have a lack of easy charts. Perhaps, we’re graduating to a higher level of light.

New World, New Moon Forecast!

The New Moon is in Gemini, which rules the mind, communication, the wind, clouds, birds and all creatures of the air. It presents  several planets in mutable (changeable) signs, which tend to represent the two sides of the self, the ego and soul. (In alchemy, we learn about carefully integrating the ego and acting on the soul.) With Sun, Moon, Mercury, and Venus in Gemini, we also experience fluctuation with the past and future selves–who were before the pandemic and who we will become in the future.
The New Moon appears on Friday, May 22nd at 1:38 pm. Sun (life), Moon (emotions), and Mercury (mind, communications)  in Gemini sharpens our ability to speak, write, and express our truth; it’s also easy to become lost in the ramblings of the mind when we lose our center. (Every sign has negative and positive qualities.)
Sun and Moon trine (harmonious) Jupiter (expansion), Saturn (limitation), and Pluto (subconscious, transformation), which helps in finding our way through recent changes in life. (Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto are believed to influence the current situation, and they are in retrograde, which eases the feeling and energy of the current collective. Sun and Moon square (tension) Mars, the planet of action); the square elicits strong emotion and frustration/impatience as associated with action.
One of the challenging aspects is Venus (love, relationships) retrograde in Gemini. Venus squares (tension) Neptune (mysticism/illusion). Duality is intrinsic in the placement as we long for the love, found in dreams, and experience dissatisfaction in personal relationships. It’s a confusing aspect and placement that reveals what we truly want with love, how our energies are out of alignment, and a perpetual desire for boundaries and reassessment. Fortunately, Venus square Neptune also inspires creativity, heightens perception of beauty, and opens us to the recognition of the reality/illusion of our dreams about love.
  • Mercury (thought) in Gemini is beautifully placed for excellent communication, mental inspiration, and perceiving the higher mind. Mercury conjuncts (close to) Venus (love), and it creates a wonderful harmony between the heart and mind. Mercury squares Neptune (mysticism, illusion), which can bring doubt and confusion about our decisions and thoughts. With this aspect, we have to use intuition and align with the heart to know if our perception is true or false. (Think of the contradictions currently presented by the media.)
  • Mars (action) in Pisces is often confused on an emotional level. As mutable, water sign, it wants to love its way through life on a cosmic level, but life calls for boundaries, physical action, and speaking our truth. Mars in Pisces becomes frustrated when others fail to perceive intuitive messages, and it can lead to feelings of victimization and anger.
  • Jupiter (expansion), Saturn (limitation), and Pluto ( underworld, transformation) remain conjunct as the three rulers of the current time (pandemic).  Fortunately, they are moving in a retrograde direction, which weakens the energy. However, we will continue to see what’s hidden in the darkness of the world, and, hopefully, make discoveries that align us with nature–and the universe!
Tips:
1) The forecast is pleasant in comparison to recent months. Trines with Sun/Moon are uplifting, and they bring feelings of optimism.
2) The quantity of mutable signs indicates that we’re experiencing dual aspects of life and self, which increase the sensation of polarity. We may feel a pull between the past and future or the ego and soul. (When we oscillate between aspects of the self, we’re actually deciding what we want to create in the future.)
3) Squares with Mercury (communication), Venus (love), and Neptune (mysticism/illusion) can cloud issues and understanding. It’s necessary to use intuition to move through life.
4) Venus (love) square Neptune in retrograde brings dissatisfaction with relationships. By learning what we truly want (the opposite of our experience), we can find it–particularly through appropriate boundaries and expressing (and identifying) the true feelings of our heart.
5) Mars in Pisces intensifies emotions and acts on feelings. It’s best to observe thoughts and feelings–and detach before taking action.
