Nature: Time of a Feminine Age

Image by Josephine Walls

According to the indigenous grandmothers, we are moving into a different time of new beginnings when everything will work in a new way. Feminine energy will preside in this new era, replacing many aspects of the masculine, which required constant action and “push” in the physical world. It emphasizes “feeling” the way into right action as opposed to the old mantra of “just do it”.
Indigenous cultures were based on feminine principles and involved connection with the earth. (Simple exercises such as meditating while focusing on a landscape or tree were used to bring in a desire.) There is a strong focus on sensation and emotion, including the necessity of “knowing” if a step resonated with the heart, particularly when taking an action.
I learned about this method from wolves. They often spent an entire day focusing on a desire until it took form, or an opportunity occurred. (It works well for humans, too.) The earth supports putting thoughts in creative form. It’s an ancient, beautiful way of being, which is likely genetically encoded. It’s a state of oneness with the earth and sky. Beyond this, it’s a slower way of being that involves time spent looking at trees and skies while learning to love what is within us—or as the Native Americans call it, “walking like a living prayer.”
Part of the motion into the feminine comes from the placement of 7 of the 10 planets (astrology includes the moon) are placed in earth and water signs, which are feminine. Stillness, connection with nature, and meditative states are associated with indigenous cultures. By lifting our minds and emotions to a specific frequency, we heighten the likelihood of manifesting a desire. The desired result is harmonious and uplifting.
Personal Lessons from Nature the Current Time
1) I don’t need to travel into the world — or to do as much as I thought.  (I’m also happier this way, and I have more time for walks and higher thoughts.)
2) I can buy most of what I need on the internet. Without driving or flying, we help the earth.  (Staying home made a huge difference in the natural world in only a few weeks.)
3) The natural world is slower and more beautiful than I remembered (before the shut-down.)
4) I can’t see my friends or family, but I can send love and light to them every day. It’s a wonderful practice that I plan to continue.
5) Without diversions, I am much happier and focused. Nature is showing us a new way of life.
Here are a few, simple ways of tapping into the feminine.
1) Think of the generous aspects of nature and the universe. See the universal energies as a force that wants to fulfill your desires. Reflect on the good parts of your life and see more pouring into your life.
2) Sit by a tree. Focus on sending out thoughts about your happiness, how you could feel better in the present moment, and a better future. Ask the tree to extend the feelings into the future.  (Trees also help with intuitive communication with loved ones and friends.)
3) Meditate outdoors. Feel the sunlight moving through you like universal light. Hold a visual and ask nature to correct it. While in this process, notice the beauty and sounds in the world. They help with harmony and balance.
4) Go for a walk. Notice how your thoughts and feelings change with the landscape. Notice the colors and shapes that are uplifting for you.
5)  Thank the earth for her goodness and express gratitude for the physical body. Notice how your body works and functions well. Take joy in it.

Finding Light and Love in Challenging Times

 

It’s more than a pandemic. The world is shifting, and it’s part of a reset of the planet and life. I’m reasonably sure that this shift is part of a collective initiation as we come together in higher consciousness through a place of stillness and intent. In many ways, this time resembles a leap into higher consciousness, which occurs through reception of light (and hard work on the self). Initially, nothing works in the right way, and everything feels juxtaposed. 
Sometimes, it’s a struggle to align. Old ways and habits no longer serve. Only intuitive focus leads in the right direction, and it comes from the heart, which requires proper use of the will. It’s a continual task to raise consciousness, focus on the heart, and see possibilities instead of doubts.

Let’s take a look at using light in a challenging time. After all, love and light are the answer.

  1. Your energy will oscillate, moving up and down with various stimuli. It’s okay. Simply create an image of yourself and loved ones as happy, healthy, and abundant. Rest for a few minutes and focus on yourself. (Coming back into consciousness awareness of the self often creates a higher frequency.) You will move through this time, and your life will improve. There’s an unique opportunity to find stillness, see the beauty of nature, and create deeper bonds with the universe.
  2. In challenging times, we are called to express kindness and courage when life is difficult, to have compassion for others when we are in pain, and to share our gifts generously whenever we can. This means listening to the heart and using our skills to  manifest more love and light. (What might happen if we all spent 10 minutes each day with an intent of creating a more beautiful, harmonious, and abundant world?)
  3. The world is not coming to an end. There are many people, who live in the light and hold beautiful visions. Wonderful possibilities remain for the world. By seeing and imagining them, you can bring them into being. Practice substituting thoughts such as these for unhappy thoughts.
  4. People can feel your love, and you can feel their love. It’s easy to open the heart to send pink light and imagine the people who you love. See them sending light and love to you. You can do the same for them. It’s a metaphysical way of raising frequency and moving into the universal love vibration.
  5. Whenever possible, speak kind words and encourage others. See them without their troubles
  6. Use each day to improve you. Notice the tone of your voice, the way you move and speak. Let your inner awareness of the self help you. Focus on the heart and see the beauty of life. (When tasks seem overwhelming, I like to imagine that I’m performing them as an act of service for the universe, which improves both mood and outlook!)
  7. It’s not a punishment. It’s an opportunity for self-mastery and to see life in a kinder, different light.
  8. When it feels like this time will last forever, you’re picking up on mass consciousness. Life is changing, and the planet is healing. Somewhere along with the way, the universe heard the desires for quiet time, rest, and a break for the planet.
  9. Abundance is an universal quality, one that is expanded through focus of mind, emotions, and consciousness. It’s important to see the universe as the source of abundance, a flow of light and physical energy that supports every aspect of your life. It also creates the possibility of generosity, helping others, and supporting positive change. When your abundance flows it, see it for others and share it when possible.
  10. When you become completely present in the moment, positive feelings from the universe flow into your life. The energy is changing, and the vibrations are very strong. Open your consciousness to possibility of big change, and trust the universe to take you to a new destination.

Additional notes

  1. Use your light as protection in public places. Radiate it around you.
  2. Write an angel letter and ask for help with specific problems.
  3. Continue to believe in your dreams. They are there for a purpose.
  4. Mention the good qualities of the people whom you love.
  5. Thank your pets for absorbing lower energies and helping you at this time.
  6. Send light to the future and take time to visualize a more beautiful, harmonious world.
  7. Remember how important you are in this pivotal time. You are much more powerful than you think!

Releasing Lower Vibrations & Moving into Higher Vibrations

 

Here’s the recording, which you can download.

https://instantteleseminar.com/Events/120810027

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

 

Here are a few tips.

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

Rise Above World Events

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

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

Praying for Others – From Amma

Chant:   Om Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu

Mystical New Moon Forecast

Image by Josephine Wall

 

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Tips

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

 

Sabian Symbols, based on the work of Lynda Hill

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

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

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

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

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

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

Full Moon Message from the Wolves

 

You must open your heart to feel the waves of life, to move into the upcoming shift. It is about feeling everything intensely—the trees, the wind, the air, and the earth beneath it. We, who speak to your soul, are everywhere. We come as coyotes, wolves, whales, dolphins, and other forms of natural life. We speak to you constantly and purely, but you must open your heart to hear.

Nature speaks to you now through thunderstorms, earthquakes, odd weather, and other changes. The voice is loud so you will listen. The earth is awakening; new light comes from the core of the earth. It is there so you can absorb it and grow into a new form, a new human who represents who and what you once were.

Your heart is speaking constantly, giving instruction through intuition and asking you to stop and see the beauty of the incredible fabric of life. Everything is aware of you if you are awakening. It feels and responds to your thoughts, it attempts to soothe and heal your feelings, and it attempts to take you in the direction of your soul.

Moving into your heart is not difficult if you realize the importance of living in a different way, a non-congruent method of feeling your way through life. Opening the heart means seeing more and sensing the invisible world where the answers await.

There are many forces in your world—some positive and other negative. The positive forces support you in the invisible world and speak to soul through waves of stories of a beautiful earth and perfection of powers that wait for awakening within you.

Last time, we spoke of crossing the bridge, the decision of aligning with light or darkness. It is also about living and feeling the world. Through feeling, you find your way, and the purest feelings and truths are hidden in the heart. (It is how everything in nature speaks.)

There is a muddle of knowledge, a confusion of religion and ceremonies, spirituality and science, and truth and falsehood, which often makes it difficult for you to find your way. Confusion and fear create easy methods of stopping you on your path. But there are options such as courage, going within, seeing the future differently, and believing in yourself, which is a strong and powerful choice.

At this point, you learn that light illuminates and creates what you see, feel, and think (on a higher level.). And there are methods of seeing and feeling life in an original, exciting manner that has escaped most of the beings on your planet for a very long time. (You tend to think that everything is hard and requires tremendous effort over a long period of time. If everyone believes this, it becomes real. What if you believed life was easy and visualized Nature supporting you in the same way that she grows trees and breathes through the tide of the oceans?)

Ideas move through the subtle plane before taking physical form. For this reason, it is possible to dream of amazing changes and experience them. On your plane, this means giving up fear and doubt. It means taking time to listen your true self and the rhythms of nature, which will either support your vision or create another way of seeing the solution. (Experiment and see.)

This way of living through the heart and expressing dreams is part of who you were in the beginning of time. Everything moves in circles and spirals. It is time to circle back and live with love, the expression of the heart.

Questions

How does this relate to crossing the bridge and moving into a new reality?

You can only cross the bridge through your heart, and everything in your reality alters when you create with the light of the heat. You do this by living in a higher frequency, a different type of love—a way of seeing your strengths and talents. As you imagine expressing them, they benefit the world. (They teach others to live in a similar way.)

What about problems? Everyone has worrisome problems.

They may think they have problems, but they are actually stepping stones to creating new and different ways of moving through reality. They can teach a new way of thinking and feeling; they can be used to eradicate old ways of being from your past.

Every problem is accompanied by a feeling from the past. Every place that you hesitate has this feeling. It’s important to develop the feeling of moving through stopping points that recur in your life. Think of jumping into the water instead of wading into it.

Begin by seeing the opposite of your problem then ask the universe to give steps. You all have a journey that is formed by steps in a specific direction. The steps teach the motion of finding and creating more – if done properly.

Do you have any additional advice?

Remember fun and joy. Recall moments in your life when you ran free and wild, and the wind blew through your hair and you rested at peace on the earth. Think of miracles, the quantum field, and incredible solutions flowing into your life. Believe in the magic of the world, and ask the universe to whisper these things in your ear as you sleep at night—or ask to hear the meaning of the songs of the wolves and whales. This is the easiest way across the bridge.

Personal Evolution: The New Revolution

 

When living on earth, we are either creating our desires and dreams—or living in a world of distortion. When in distortion, we believe “bad” things are happening. When creating, we understand the necessity of creating dreams from good feelings and positive thoughts, which are the result of connection with the Universe and/or God.

In this place, synchronicity and happy events occur, our energy radiates out to the others, who are receptive, and are lifted by our internal focus. We become aware that our heart speaks an universal language, and we feel life respond to us. We also learn to change our perception of life and to see difficult events as a way of returning to connection with the inner self to find answers and new solution.

At this particular point in time and space, our way of dreaming and creating is more profound. We are coming together in higher consciousness, and a positive thought or visualization affects many, people. It can also act as a catalyst for a large group of people to focus on a new dream for planet in which harmony is a strong force that brings new changes and realizations.

When life is not working, it’s essential to change beliefs, perceptions, and visualizations. We all have a place in the heart that knows the answers and offers new images and a new way of being—if we are willing to tap into unconditional love and universal knowledge. As many people awaken and discover their non-ordinary (psychic/spiritual) gifts, we will discover our power to make positive change in the world.

The true revolution from greed, lower emotions, and destruction on the planet comes our inner evolution—the moments when we send peace instead of feeling anger, see solutions in place of defeat, or simply send love to the planet—because these are moments of alignment with the inner self. When we reach the tipping point of higher consciousness, life begins to respond quite differently in the inner and outer world. (Some call these miracles, but they are our birthright—the power to make changes from the point of higher perception.)

What is Personal Evolution on a Higher Level?

It’s a commitment to inner growth, including the development of the ability to observe personal patterns and awareness of movement into lower consciousness such as watching the news, focusing on (and believing) negative reports about the environment, and sharing this information, which can pull others in a state of dis-empowerment and helplessness. (Yes, we need to know what is happening, but we need to counter it with positive visuals and feelings. In other words, we don’t accept it as truth.)

Every person is important. Each person counts. The personal vision of life, goodness, and love is slightly different in everyone. When these positive feelings expand, they illuminate others who are on the path. They also serve expand our personal limitations about expression of consciousness.

We call on the universe and our heart space to find a greater and unlimited truth. We see solutions rather focusing on problems, and we send pink light (love) to the issue when we don’t know what to do or see. We accept that there is always a higher vision, and life responds to the imagery and emotions that live within us.

We see a different planet with harmony, compassion, and higher vibrations. We accept it for what it is at the moment, but we refuse to do nothing (internally). We learn how to hold a higher vision. When we reach critical mass, the changes take place. We saw this with Australia, and we have the power to prevent much of the destruction on the earth—if we continue our quest.

Why Is It Important?

We’ve reached an energetic turning point, marked by the Saturn/Pluto conjunction We must decide which side we’re on—and make a decision. If we want light, we have to work at it, and we have to develop faith in our abilities.

The real choice lies in our thoughts, emotions, visuals, and inner spiritual work. Essentially, we’re choosing every moment to move into love and create good in life—or to continue with lower emotions about what is wrong and seeing ourselves in a helpless place as a victim.

Ultimately, we believe in the power of light—or we don’t. We prove it by following our intuitions, continuing to work on connection with the self and the universe, and knowing that we can find answers to our patterns and problems through visualization and reflection. We hold the faith in our own work, continue to believe in the potential of higher collective consciousness, and rely on the power of inner knowing to follow the path of the spiritual journey. As we do this, we begin to build a beautiful world.

New Moon Forecast: A Shift in Time

 

The New Moon heightens the overall energy. It appears on Friday, January 24.  Sun (life), Moon (emotion), and Mercury (thought) are placed in Aquarius, an air sign that rules group consciousness. Its symbol is the water-bearer, and Air represents the highest power of thought, a cosmically conscious equation moving at the speed of light, and water represents emotion, which is love on the highest level. It also signifies the power of the individual when working with group consciousness.

Sun, Moon, and Mercury are conjunct, heightening the Aquarius energy.The relatively rare conjunction of Saturn/Pluto continues; it’s an aspect that urges devotion to the soul and conscious connection through higher thoughts and vibrations. True power comes from the inner self, and there is a great deal of energy when people join together with the higher vibrations of light. It’s the way in which we can build and create a new reality. (We may have experienced the strange feeling of being between worlds in the past week as a result of the conjunction.)

On an entirely, different level, many awakened people (like you) are becoming more intuitive, sensitive to others, and aware of the group vibration. Group vibrations include mass consciousness, higher consciousness, and people who are joined through causes and/or beliefs. As our thoughts evolve, the connection quickens.

Sun (life), Moon (emotions), and Saturn (karma, time) square Uranus (sudden change, quantum field). With this aspect, Uranus can make emotions feel electrically tense and amplify conflict in life. It’s about change. Sun, Moon, and Saturn are placed in Aquarius, the sign ruling technology, science, and electronics. Uranus is placed in Taurus, which rules the earth and creating beauty in material form. On a larger scale, the conflict is about combining the two aspects of life—and finding a harmony between science/technology, nature, and the spiritual world. On a personal level, it’s about flowing above conflicts and disharmony, which is a spiritual lesson that repeats periodically. (These aspects will last only a few days.)

Venus (feminine, relationships) is placed in Pisces. It is exalted, which expands our capability to feel and find higher forms of love.  Venus conjuncts (close to, amplifying) Neptune (mysticism, illusion), and it helps in seeing through the illusion to grasp universal messages and receive spiritual, unconditional love. Venus squares Mars (male, action), and it may cause conflict between the two sides of the self (yin and yang) or make it more difficult to understand the opposite sex.

Mars (male, action) is in Sagittarius, a fire sign, and it heightens creativity, desire, and drive. Mars squares (pressure, conflict) Neptune (mysticism, illusion), which means it may be necessary to feel and intuit the best action—rather than receiving clear guidance. Venus and Mars (male, energy) are square, creating tension between the feminine and masculine—in relationships and within the self. Mars in Sagittarius helps in moving ahead on projects and gives a much needed feeling of optimism.

Jupiter (good fortune), Saturn (limitation, discipline) and Pluto (underworld, transformation) remain in Capricorn, drawing our attention to the physical world and pushing us to create a new and different physical world for ourselves. (In my opinion, it’s about personal dedication to spirituality and higher collective consciousness with attention on positive change.)

Uranus (sudden change, quantum field) is placed in Taurus, which represents the first phase of building and growing with the earth. The squares with Uranus can signify the conflict of our technological world and the importance of aligning with nature. It is possible to create a balance between science and nature, but we will have to dream up solutions and visualize them fully.

The challenge of the chart lies with Uranus. Sun (life), Moon (emotions), and Saturn (limitation, karma) square Uranus. It can cause frustration for less evolved people. We (and/or other people) are likely to intuit the blocked places in our lives and desire quick action and change. The chart tells us to wait for exceptional ideas and to work our way to the answer through intuition. We’re also moving into the realization that the thoughts, feelings, and beliefs of the awakened individual strongly affect the outer world (Saturn/Pluto conjunction)

 

Tips:

  1. Although the New Moon is a time of contemplation and relative quiet, all of the planets are direct until February 16, which opens a doorway for focused action. (Many of the normal frustrations of life are on hold during this time, so use the next 2-3 weeks to move in the direction of dreams and desires.)
  2. One of the challenges in the chart lies in squares with Uranus. These aspects may also bring awareness to the aspects in life that need attention and discipline. The aspect can elicit overreaction and the desire for sudden change. It’s important not to act on those impulses. 
  3. Venus (love, relationships) can give the right feelings to overcome the frustrations of the chart. We can meditate on beauty, love, and grace. We can receive the lovely waves of energy from the Venus/Neptune conjunction.
  4. The conjunction with Saturn and Pluto moves into a role of spiritual development. It offers the possibility of using higher collective consciousness to create positive change in the world.
  5. A great deal of energy is found in the chart, and it’s up to us to use it wisely. When we feel frustration or the pressure of Uranus’ energy, it’s important to find a calm, quiet place within the inner self. (This has been the lesson since 2012. When the world is loud, go within and find the stillness of the self.)

 

Sabian Symbols, based on the work of Lynda Hill

Sun and Moon are on Aquarius 5, “A Council of Ancestors Has Been Called to Guide a Man”. The symbol focuses on our power to find the truth within ourselves–including the wisdom of the elders who have walked before us. It’s about finding guidance through the inner self, the connection to the cosmos that lives within all of us. It’s how we defeat erratic energies and soar by aligning with metaphysical wisdom.

Mercury sits on Aquarius 14, “A Train Entering a Tunnel”. A tunnel represents the quickest way of moving to a particular destination. It’s a perfect symbol for the New Moon when we move briefly into darkness before returning to the light. It also asks that we quicken our spiritual work and focus our hearts and spirits on solutions and positive visualizations. It’s time to push for spiritual growth and perfect methods of working with light, sound, and the higher vibrations of the universe.

Venus is placed on Pisces 14, “A Woman Wrapped in Fox Fur”. The image depicts beauty, glamour, and wealth. It symbolizes the need to see beyond the appearances of the outer world. In a culture, which is sometimes obsessed with fame, wealth, and appearance, the symbol urges to see beyond appearances–and weigh worth by looking at ourselves and others for alignment with the inner self.

Mars is on Sagittarius 15, “The Ground Hog Looking for its Shadow on Ground Hog Day”. The image describes a sign that indicates the passage from winter into spring. Yet, we know from our environment and the signs of spring when the seasons will change. It’s about looking for a sign or confirmation from the outer world when we already know the truth within ourselves–but haven’t yet deciphered it.

Jupiter is placed on Capricorn 13, “A Fire Worshipper Meditates on the Ultimate Realities of Existence”. When meditating with a candle and/or participating in a fire ceremony, our focus is concentrated on the flame. Fire represents our relationship with the spiritual world, the flame of knowledge and love that is freely given from the universe. It may be necessary to completely shut out the material (outer) world and focus on the finding the “heart” of our lives.

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.
