Lovely New Moon!

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Notes:

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

Full Moon Forecast

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

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

The Full Moon focuses on feminine energy with Sun in Scorpio, a water sign, and Moon in Taurus, an earth sign.  Water and earth signs are feminine and receptive, and they urge acknowledging emotion, finding understanding of internal states, and creating change in the physical world.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Tips:

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

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.

Moving Into Oneness

Moving into Oneness comes from awareness of the inner self. It grows through listening to the heart and moving into light.
 
When we move into Oneness, we connect with everything and everyone on the planet. We feel the interconnection with the All.  (I practice this exercise several times every day!)

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

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.
