New Moon Forecast: Time to Take The Next Step

 

If we want to take action, move life in a new direction, or push forward with dreams of the soul, this New Moon is the perfect time. The New Moon is on Thursday, Sept 17 at 7 am ET, and it appears in the earth sign of Virgo with many aspects, which can help in the realization of dreams. (The aspects can feel frustrating or make life feel overwhelming, or they can make life fall into place–if the energy is used and applied with good intention and a strong will.)

The elements of the chart are well balanced with the exception of water (emotion). Metaphysics teaches that an absence of a quality needs attention so it’s wise to think about how we move into positive and negative emotion—and consider what is the best use of personal emotion?

Sun (life) and Moon (emotion) are in Virgo, and earth signs can help with organization, practical matters in life, and healing. Virgo is symbolized by the Virgin and the High Priestess, indicating the need for purity of spirit and body to tap into the mystical wisdom of the High Priestess, who hold the secrets of the mystical world.

The Sun and Moon form powerful trines with Jupiter (expansion, good fortune), Saturn (limitation, structure), and Pluto (regeneration). These energies can help with putting our life plans into form, particularly if we take time to meditate and travel into the power of the New Moon, which is the void—the quiet place within where spirit and matter merge.

Sun and Moon oppose Neptune (mysticism, illusion), meaning that our intuition and hunches can touch on the illusions formed during our time on the earth and alternately unveil personal and spiritual; truths. Oppositions are like two opposing currents; we travel between the positive/negative lines of realization at various times. Obviously, discrimination is necessary.

Mercury (communications, mind) is in Libra, an air sign ruled by Venus. It encourages deliberation, the weighing of truth, and value of choices in life. Mercury squares (tension, frustration, action) Jupiter (expansion, growth), Saturn (karma, limitation), and Pluto (subconscious, transformation.) On a higher level, squares can push us into expression and action. Perhaps, we need to see and express our thoughts about the past and/or thoughts about blocks in a new paradigm that transcends old limitations.

Venus (relationships, love) is placed in Leo, a fire sign that rules the heart. Venus in Leo is playful, loving, and dramatic. It’s warm and uplifting. Venus squares Neptune (illusion, mysticism), and the aspect heightens sensitivity of emotions and the ability to appreciate and perceive beauty. It can also cause overreaction, giving importance to self-awareness and introspection.

Mars (action) is placed in Aries, a fire sign. Aries is the sign of the warrior, and it likes to march forward with a swift sword, cutting away whatever blocks the way. Aries also rules the mind, and the importance of understanding this placement lies in knowing if  the desire for action comes from the inner self or the ego. We leave the path when the desire comes from ego, and we embrace light when aligned with the spiritual self.

Mars is in retrograde, which will feel stronger as we move through October and early November. It’s particularly important to build strength and health during the next few weeks. Mars squares Jupiter (expansion), Saturn (karma, limitation), and Pluto (subconscious, transformation). The squares can stir anger or bring feelings of frustration/resentment to the surface. It’s important to think about (and feel) what we want in place of blocked, lower emotion.

Jupiter (expansion), Saturn (limitation), and Pluto (subconscious, transformation) in Capricorn control the current energy, which bring the feelings of heaviness and isolation to the world. Jupiter expands the feeling and overall energy of the three planets, Saturn brings the feeling of isolation, and Pluto demonstrates the darkness. However, Pluto is also transformation, and the small efforts made by many light workers will eventually alter the energies and structure of the world. (These aspects continue throughout the year.)

 

Summary

  • Make the best of the current situation by moving into healing (Sun/Moon in Virgo) and creating a new, positive way of living. Meditate to receive insights and create a more, supportive life. The positive and beautiful trines can help a great deal with this type of perception—and creating a better life.
  • Mercury (communication) in Libra can give balance and insights to mental processes. The squares ask for expression of truth, beauty, and higher thoughts, which come from the combination of mind and heart.
  • Mars in Aries helps with taking action and moving forward on the path. Transform lower emotions by taking steps to walk on the spiritual path. Move into your dharma and make supportive changes in life.
  • We’re learning to shine our light in the darkness of the world, which is revealed regularly. Our small actions to align with the inner self help the world immensely. Everyone in the light benefits from these energies. Creating a better world begins with our vision, inner work, and demonstration of effort in the physical world.

Message from the Wolves: Time to Awaken

 

We live in the mountains, the forest, and hidden places where it is pristine and forgotten by man–where trees dance, and the original songs of the world can be heard. Tonight, as the moon grows full, we share some of those songs with you.

Once, you were perfect. Your thoughts and emotions aligned with the Divine. All that you saw or felt in your mind appeared in a harmonious way in your physical reality. (That’s part of the purpose of the earth. It is place for manifesting ideas, dreams, and desires, so you can delight in the beauty and create even more.)

A wild beauty appears on earth on the nights of the full and new moons. The secret rhythms of the world are released for a few moments and are carried by the whales, dolphins, coyotes, and wolves through sonar, which includes sounds too high and low for you to hear. Nevertheless, they play throughout the planet and can be felt.

The earth loved the beauty of your creations, and the sea sang songs to you. Everything rejoiced in the beauty of what you created. Over time, you moved out of harmony, and now it is time to return and create again.

The beautiful dreams of life from the beginning are still within you. Begin by finding the desires put in your heart by the universe. Know they are powerful and special—and part of your way of finding the path to divine. By following your desires, you move through limitations and open your heart to greater expectations.

You will know when your dream is real because you will feel its light in your soul. A flowing sense of happiness will move through you—along with the possibility of its realization. A true dream comes from your soul, and you explore your soul through the process of manifestation. It is how you learn to align yourself with the laws of nature and the universe. Yes, it involves repetition because everything in Nature tends to repeat. (Think of the blooms of flowers, the seasons, and the appearance of the moon. It appears, changes, and reappears. This is one of the important cycles of earth.)

Many of you will say you have had a dream, and it didn’t come into fruition. Perhaps, you did not stay with your dream or find the meditative magic, which accompanies the work. Wolves often sit in circles and focus on their dreams for hours—even days or months. At this point on your timeline, it takes fierce concentration and desire to change the fabric of life into another form.

Most people do not long for a dream deeply enough to create it, so they live with a sense of dissatisfaction—a lack of fulfillment. For those who follow the process, they receive light, gifts, and the practice of overcoming limitations. (There are many limitations on your planet along with lower vibrations, which can require a great effort to overcome. But we ask, what are you doing with your life and your time? Do you not have time to entertain the dreams and beauty of your soul?)

Keep in mind that everything on your planet vibrates at a specific rate. When your mind, emotions, and body vibrate at a higher rate, matter itself aligns with your vibration. And all dreams and desires vibrate at a higher frequency than your experience of the current reality.

The attainment of higher vibrations is part of the shift on earth. Many of you will learn how to manifest—not simply have or want or accumulate—but create from your soul. As you grasp the power and techniques of this potential, the entire frequency of the planet will increase. (It is part of the change that many of you came here to create.)

Here are some aspects of manifestation that may help you.

  • When you are dissatisfied with an aspect of life, take the opportunity to see it differently. It may not work out as you planned, but something different will happen. Don’t hide emotions. Express them and create your life in a different way.
  • It’s okay when your manifestation works out differently from your plan. The twists and turns teach about the universe’s preferences. From this, you learn about the universe’s desires for you.
  • Ask often if you desire for the highest and best good of all. Will the vibration of your new knowledge and life help others as well as yourself? As you pursue your dream, what changes are needed within you? Are you learning to love life and yourself more?
  • Big dreams and changes require work. Are you willing to give time and energy to them? Are you willing to meditate on them with all of your heart?
  • Nature plays a large part in manifestation. When you meditate outdoors, nature corrects and replicates your vision. Every part of nature helps in creating it in the physical world.

The Challenge of Oscillation

One of the challenges of the current shift is oscillation, the periodic sensations of high and low. It occurs as the inner self develops, and we move through karma. (Karma can simply mean habits, repetitive patterns, or a negative response – as small as refusing to recognize or speak our personal truth.) Oscillation can cause strong emotions. Although we are steadily moving into a higher place, we continue to experience the old vibrations of the lower self.
We master oscillation over a period of time – not instantly. But we can observe, think about the inner self, and center for a few moments, which is the essence of mastery.
Here are a few tips:
1)      When life moves easily, it’s good to expand the energy outwardly into the present and the near future. It’s also helpful to “see” good things for others and project a better, happier world. (Scientific experiments prove “seeing” good for others brings healing and positive energy into our lives.)
2)      When the emotional/mental waves are low, it’s helpful to know they pass more quickly when we take time to tap into the spiritual self. We can replace lower thoughts with positive thoughts; we can substitute a positive emotion for a lower one. (We do this by meditating on peace, harmony, joy, or the feeling of a higher vibration.) We can send pink light (love) to the lower self, which feels the emotion.
3)      When we observe a thought or emotion, it becomes quieter. The inner self generates positive emotions and thoughts. It delivers peaceful answers. By putting our consciousness in this place, life changes.
4)      Many teachings speak of “low” and “high” points as storms and rainbows. We think storms are difficult, and rainbows signal a time of abundance. Both are illusions on the path on life. Beyond the illusion is the path of light. If we remain on the journey, we find (and become) the light.
5)       When we change how we see life, “reality” changes. It takes on the shape and form of our thoughts. If we know we are passing through a wave, it’s unlikely that all of our thoughts are true and real. Simply knowing this is very helpful!
6)      Within the universe, there are thousands of secrets. Study and meditation reveal some of the secrets. We also perceive some of the secrets of the inner self by mastering oscillation, the interplay between the lower and higher self. (In difficult moments, call on angels, teachers, and guides. Someone or something – a book, recorded meditation, or a call from a friend – will always help.)

New Moon Forecast

 

 

The New Moon appears on Tuesday, August 18 at 10:41 pm ET. The New Moon typically brings less energy than a full moon. For those who are sensitive, they may experience a feeling of “flatness” while moving into the void of New Moon. (The lovely part comes with our ability to focus and project wishes/dreams while watching their fruition between now and the Full Moon.)

Earth and Fire dominate the chart. Put them together, and we have new earth—the force of heat, passion, and stability. (Volcanoes come from this combination of elements.)  Perhaps, we’re creating our “new” self along with a new world. (The energies definitely lend themselves to this.) It’s a wonderfully fiery and passionate forecast with Sun (life), Moon (emotions), and Mercury (thought) conjunct in Leo, the sign that rules the heart, passion, and warmth. Conjunctions (close) between Sun, Moon, and Mercury amplify solar energy and light. Mars (energy, assertion) in Aries, a fire sign, adds to the heat.

Venus (love, beauty) in Cancer expands emotional awareness, need for security, and vulnerability. While it increases our need for emotional security, it also brings vulnerability—and hypersensitivity. (If we think someone is hurting our feelings, it’s good to remember that it may come from Venus in Cancer—not a factual event.) Venus opposes Jupiter (expansion). Think of two opposite forces and receiving a ray of energy from each simultaneously or at different times. Jupiter in Capricorn is about seeking status through loving relationships, and Venus in Cancer seeks security. The opposition can dim our desire to work, increasing the urge to spend or seek pleasure.

           Mars

Mars rules passion, sex, assertion, and overall energy. Its nature is masculine, particularly when placed in Aries. Mars is quite powerful in this forecast; however, it’s important to focus only on development of current projects as it will move into retrograde September-November. Think of retrograde Mars as receding physical energy. Every day, we will have a little less energy for over 2 months. (Use this time to build vitality.)

There are beautiful trines and frustrating/energizing squares with Mars, planet of action and assertion. The trines heighten creativity and passion, but the squares indicate blocks and pressure. Sun (life), Moon (emotions), and Mercury (thought) trine Mars, which provides an abundance of creativity, heightened emotion, and assertion. Mars squares Jupiter (expansion), Saturn (limitation), and Pluto (subconscious, transformation). The squares are quite useful as they exert pressure and urge action. However, it’s necessary to separate the ego’s desires from the inner self—if we want true progress. Quiet moments in meditation and time for self-reflection will keep our energy moving correctly through the tension of the squares.

 

Other Planets (and Retrogrades)

If it feels difficult to complete tasks or takes more energy than usual, it’s likely due to multiple retrogrades.  Jupiter (good fortune), Saturn (limitation), Uranus (sudden change), Neptune (mysticism), and Pluto (underworld) are all retrograde. It takes more energy than usual to create change in the material world.

Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto remain in conjunction, accounting for the flow of current energies on a global level. With three influential planets in Capricorn, we experience many of the qualities of Saturn such as limitation, loneliness, and isolation. Jupiter (expansion, good luck) expands the limiting sensations, associated with aspects of the Saturn/Pluto conjunction. Pluto (subconscious, transformation) brings the problems and underlying darkness of social structures and rules/regulations to the surface.

Into the Mystical

Jupiter sextile Neptune brings harmony, flow, and a sense of peacefulness. It increases optimism and good luck. Jupiter trine (harmonious) Uranus helps with adjusting to change, applying creativity in new ways, and allowing positive opportunities to flow into our lives.

Neptune sextile Pluto encourages examination of existent structures in society. It boosts our ability to tap into inspiration and faith about the future. The aspect amplifies the ability to feel the trends of the future—and the ability to merge into the higher collective consciousness.

North Node

Sun (life), Moon (emotions), Mercury (communications), and Mars (energy) sextile North Node in Gemini. The North Node represents the direction of growth attained by moving through the unknown; it also represents inner gain for humanity at large. (North Node in Gemini is about examining concrete thought forms and intellectual processes.)

Sun (life) sextile North Node heightens vitality and enthusiasm for life. Moon (emotions) sextile North Node heightens imagination and accuracy with intuition and psychic abilities. Mercury (communication) sextile North Node expands mental ability and intellect. Mars (overall energy) sextile North Node encourages forward motion, initiation, and the ability to create circumstances that move life forward.

Tips

  • Many aspects of the chart, including placement of Sun, Moon, Mercury, and Mars, encourage creativity, forward motion, and dedication of energy in life. It’s very important to ask your self (inner self) what is truly important—and to dedicate yourself to this time of movement.
  • The upcoming retrograde with Mars asks for dedication only to ongoing project—not new ones. It doesn’t provide the energy for new projects. (It’s wise to work on health and immune system between now and Sept 14, when the retrograde begins. Mars retrograde “takes” energy.)
  • Venus in Cancer heightens emotional sensitivity, and Venus opposition Saturn can increase vulnerability—and misreading the words and actions of others.
  • Aspects with North Node encourage embracing the unknown. It allows us to sense the flow of the future and move more easily into it, particularly if the objective is humanitarian.
  • This New Moon is perfect for visualization and projecting a kinder, better future. Aspects with Neptune may help in connecting with the mystical world.

 

 

Sabian Symbols, based on the work of Lynda Hill

Sun and Moon are on Leo 27, “Daybreak—The Luminescence of Dawn in the Eastern Sky” symbolizes renewal, hope, and possibility. Dawn marks the transformational hour when both worlds (day and night) open on the spiritual level. Perhaps, we will find a deeper spiritual vibration for the coming months as well as a heightened rapport with the inner self.

Mercury sits on Leo 29, “A Mermaid Has Climbed the Rocky Shore of a Bleak Coast; She Awaits the Prince Who Will Bring Her Immorality.” It’s another beautiful symbol, referring the alchemy of the soul, depicting the union of yin (female) and yang (male). It’s about moving into love and the next level of life after surmounting difficulties (bleak coast).

Venus is placed on Cancer 11, “A Clown is Caricaturing Well-Known Personalities”.  It’s a depiction of exaggeration and satire as well as people pretending to depict themselves falsely. (We know there’s currently plenty of this in the world.) The symbol asks for sincerity, real emotions, and true expression of thoughts to move into a state of love.

Mars is on Aries 25, “A Double Promise Reveals Its Inner and Outer Meanings.” The oracle asks for perception of the truth on a deeper level as opposed to the rewards on the outer level. (It could refer to the appearance of society and/or commerce—as well as looking more intently at other people.)

Jupiter sits on Capricorn 19, “A Child of About Five Carrying A Huge Shopping Bag Filled with Groceries”.  The symbol refers to someone who has been burdened by responsibilities, which may feel heavy or overwhelming. It may refer to the efforts of light workers to carry karma and/or the weight of others during this time of change. Jupiter rules good fortune, and balance can help in this situation. Make time to rest, release what you can, and focus on self-care when possible.

Love or Fear in a Time of Change

It can feel difficult to stay positive and remain in a state of love. Every few hours, there’s a new announcement, a phone call, or email to remind us of the constant change—the frenzy of many people reacting to fear and change.
People have forgotten that voicing a fear often creates it. Talk about lack of abundance if you want to create loss, think about being sick if you want to experience it, and focus on the current problems of darkness if you want to go deep into lower vibrations.  Not only do you travel into the darkness, you project it outwardly to others and the outer world.
It’s important to read about current events, stay tuned into possibility, and take reasonable precautions however, there’s a much better way to live. And that’s in a space of love.
In the space of love, there’s an entirely different broadcast that brings presence, fulfillment, and understanding of current energies. In this place of peace, we can no longer feel the waves of agitation or fear. (It doesn’t mean we don’t go there periodically, but we recognize it and pull back.)
We also feel the gifts of the present where the stars shine, and the dusk comes in twilight blue. We find small answers for the moment, which lead to greater understanding—or at least answers, which are elusive unless they are encountered in the state of love.

Problems grow smaller, and the potential reveals itself. It comes from thinking of neither past nor future but by relying on the heart’s ability to navigate directly through the force of love. It’s not possible to feel darkness or fear when we move into the heart, which brings courage and positive change.

(Actually, light workers have been practicing with this state for the past five to ten years. The difference is that love is called upon with the will, and we make a consistent effort to stay there. It’s not just a “feel” good state; it’s a necessity.)

Tips

  1. A positive attitude is needed. Notice the quiet, the clear sky, and the opportunity to work on the body and mind.
  2. Stay calm when going out into the world. Imagine it as an exercise to keep reactions in check. Speak positively and kindly to workers. See yourself finding everything you need.
  3. See the pandemic as an opportunity to improve the body, quiet the negative inner dialog, and create time for connection with the universe. (It also offers more time to meditate.)
  4. Convince yourself that a shift is occurring, and the universe is on your side. It will lead you to the right place. (It’s true.)
  5. Find the part of you that move into life optimistically and energetically. (Every student on the path confronts this challenge.)

Quick Exercises

  • Health – See yourself with vitality and strength. You’re always healthy, and you’re growing stronger. See weak parts of the body as healing and act on intuitions to bring about greater health. Action: Work on the immune system through diet, nutrition, and exercise.
  • Loving Relationships – See the strengths and goodness of the people in your life and see the truth, too. Have healthy boundaries and work on compassion. Visualize positive outcomes. Send pink light. Action: Speak kind words and speak softly when establishing boundaries.
  • Prosperity – Imagine bills as smaller, see gifts coming to you, and imagine money is always coming into your life. (If not, ask the universe to reveal your beliefs.) Action: Put away money and take time to meditate and “feel” more pouring into your life.
  • Spirituality – Come back to a space of love. Find your heart chakra and focus on the present. Wait for slow moments of clarity to return. Action: Do this as many times as possible every day.

Message from the Wolves

Over the past months, the wolves often send images of wave with color, which contain knowledge of the future and past, and words of encouragement that come on the wind.  Their voices seem so beautiful when I hear them in my heart

Here a few of their comments about this current time.

Q. Please tell us about this time. What can you share?

Energetically, the planet is changing. To us, it is a beautiful time. Sometimes, the planet is very still with fewer flights and cars, pollution is reduced, and animals are free to roam the world. Nature shines and glows in these moments. The trees speak in gentle words that are carried by the wind, and energies come from the earth to aid with your growth.

You may not feel this, yet. You may interpret it as times of feeling upset or aligning with the inner self, accompanied  periods of exhaustion and high energy. Actually, this is how your body and spirit adjust to the new energies. It takes time for spiritual and physical to come into fruition. However, the energies are becoming increasingly available on your planet. It is the beginning of the release of higher patterns and frequencies, which will benefit you in the times to come.

We are with you in your dreams—and in the moment that you stretch your consciousness and use your intuition. We perceive it when you use higher consciousness to perceive and feel life differently or simply decide to go on with faith and love or belief in yourself. These are the moments when you are changing, tapping into the higher energies, and finding expression of your inner self. Often, these may feel like brief moments of resolution, the decision to move on with life in cheerful or optimist sense. But they are truly times of inner alignment when you are listening and feeling who you truly are. (They are moments of strong decision when you align with the light and motion of nature.)

For those on lower vibrations, it is the beginning of the end of a world driven by the desire to gain without taking satisfaction or expressing gratitude—and not using gains to benefit the inner self and the all. When gain is made by the inner self, it is usually expressed as generosity, love, kindness, and fair boundaries.

For many, it will become a time of awakening and remembering many gifts, which have not been used for eons. Once, many of you were like Merlin or the old, famous ones, who could change the course of time and various other events.  It is only the beginning of a magical world for you.

Q. Why does the energy feel unsettling and odd?

There are many layers of consciousness at this time, and they are swirling or moving to some degree. It can feel unsettling because you are in the midst of the ending of old world and the beginning of  a shift into a new world. Many layers of reality are intermeshed. For example, when you spiritually go to a higher level, you oscillate between the old reality and the new reality for a period of time until you master the higher frequency of the new reality—the new you.

You may have a space of feeling aligned and seeing the beauty and joy of the world. Later, you may react to the news or the pull of mass consciousness. Mastering the lower vibration by moving into a higher one is a necessary task.

Also, the markers of your world are diminishing. The seasons are changing, the weather is changing, and your lives are slowly moving into a new frame of reference.

Q. What are “markers”?

We can refer to a marker as the cycle of the sun and moon as well as the accepted holidays, which are based on this ancient calendar. Your planet is moving into a slightly different position, which affects the energies received from the sun and moon. As a result, your readings of the universe are not precisely correct.

All of the matter on your planet is responding differently. Many species have reappeared, plants and trees are growing differently, and the vibration of your planet is changing.,

Also, your social institutions such as church, school, and government are not the same. Holidays may change as this time ensues. If you wonder about the value of this, it’s much easier for everyone to change and seize the higher vibration when everything does not run and proceed as it once did.

Q. Why can’t we feel more of the positive influences?

Many people are not connected with the earth, and there is a strong call from nature. When you attune with this energy, you activate other energies, which connect to the inner self. The moments of chaos in your “world” call for connection with the heart and a focus of consciousness on peace and love.

Understand you no longer need continual broadcasts and updates on what is supposedly happening in the outer world. You are asked to create a simpler life and to find answers within the inner self.  These answers will help with adjustment and creation of a new world that is more in alignment with you.

Think of how the earth feels when thousands gather and indulge in lower emotions or throw trash on the earth. It is not positive or healing. Yet, people miss it. In truth, they miss the diversion, and lower diversions are ending although this will take time.

Sit and be still. Feel your inner gifts, your heart, and your abilities. Find a place of happiness within you. When many people do this, you create a wave of light, which can align you with a far better reality. It’s time tuning into new energies that bring transformation and healing.

Q. What is the best way to live and grow?

Take joy in open moments when the vibrations are high. Rest between tasks and go outdoors often so the body can absorb the new energies, which are more easily received from the earth. Walk and look at the sky.

You know you’re connected when you become more intuitive and suddenly “know” answers in your heart. There is no other path to wisdom. You also notice the beauty. New energy exudes from the earth, and it is here to help you in many ways. Instead of fighting against the new stillness, move into it. Slowing down in this way helps in realizing your right place of being and place in the world.

You can also learn to observe yourself and change your immediate future by learning to identify your negative beliefs that limit your lives. In place of fear, see answers. In place of lack, see monetary abundance, in place of loss of relationships, create loving relationships in your mind. Make the habit so strong that new images replace the old ones. Practice with this technique.

It’s how you move into a higher place in consciousness. For example, if you create a feeling of being loved by others, you are now a person who lives in a state of love, If you attract financial prosperity, you are now a person who does not worry about running out of money.

New thoughts and actions reshape your consciousness and your beliefs. Of course, this will change your behavior. If you attract love, you become aware of how you repel it and/or how you do or say the wrong thing. As a natural result, you correct the course of your life by becoming a new person who is closer to who you truly are.

Q. Where should we put our focus?

Welcome the shadows when they occur. They teach you where to seek change and create a higher vision. They give impetus for physical, emotional, and spiritual change. Knowing what you don’t want, the energies, which are dissonant, and the patterns, which are uncomfortable, give information on how and where to grow.

Work and learn the opposite sensations of pressures of life and the darkness of the self. If you can’t speak up, practice new words and feelings. If you can’t act, envision it. Create new ways of interacting with life until they become your new way of seeing and feeling all that is around you.

It is a way of cultivating higher energies and frequencies, which are the missing puzzle piece for you. It may seem contradictory to look at the shadows and darkness in your life, but, if you do this by believing you can change yourself and your life, it is very helpful.

See the good qualities in yourself and others. Take time to interact with the beauty of life, which is partially about placement of consciousness. Make a decision to feel and live more—even in partial isolation.

Stay flexible with your schedule. Alter it often to see what works best for you in the new world.

Make time for inner and outer work. Pay attention when you feel joy or freedom. Repeat the aspects of life that deliver this. It’s how you move into higher consciousness and discover more of who truly are.  (The energies are quite supportive of this.)

Passing Through the Lion’s Gate

 

Think of the Lion’s Gate as a cosmic blast of solar light. The Lion’s Gate symbolizes the annual height of  solar energy, emanated by the astrological sign of Leo. It refers to a process of purifying the fabric of our consciousness and recreating ourselves with a higher light level. It’s a quick process because the Lion’s Gate is open between August 8 and August 12—although the energy will linger for a week or more.

The Lion’s Gate occurs during “Dog Days” or when the dog star, Sirius, precedes the sun on the horizon. The Great Pyramid of Cheops was built to align with the rise of Sirius to mark the importance of  a time of rebirth—an opportunity to move more deeply  into our divine blueprint and resurrect the True Self.  As a result, the solar year began on July 28 with the motion of the Sun into Leo (solar) energy, and the celebration of light ended on September 15.

Solar light is associated with the masculine energies such as spirituality, universal love, courage, creativity and pure light. Light cleanses, and it brings spiritual change. The light is somewhat yang; it can feel over stimulating on a mental/creative level if we don’t take time to rest and reflect. For those who are open, it alters the DNA, raising our capacity to receive more light into the body and energy field.

The light brings endings such as harvest, but it also illuminates new beginnings. This means opening up to the universe and expanding what we think is the fabric of life. For example, everyone has problems, large or small. There are desires and objects of our longing; yet, they are part of the human experience—and are eclipsed by the universal light.

Becoming who we really are (and moving into greater love) always constitutes the universal movement. When we surrender to these concepts, the solutions to our problems often emerge effortlessly. In other words, we are the answers to our problems. The answer lies in shifting our consciousness to a wider vision. It lies in accepting who we truly are—and finding a new paradigm.

Light also acts a quickening and cleansing agent. It cleanses our thoughts, emotions, and shows us the darkness in our lives. Part of the darkness (for all of us) lies in resonating and identifying with the recurrence of the shadows. What if we didn’t believe in the necessity of negative experiences? What if we could alter our lives instantly?  Who would we become if we stepped more deeply into the light? What if  positive events happened more quickly? (There is a “feeling” beneath the questions. Expand it if you feel it.)

There are inherent challenges in raising our light level. Sometimes, we think about what we leave behind us or worry about who we will become. Other times, we focus on our journey or how it will work.  It’s good to keep in mind that visualizing, asking questions, making wishes, or believing might lead us to fulfillment with far less effort.

On the human level, there are changes with every new level of light. For simplicity’s sake, I’m grouping them. You may feel the changes on more than one level, or you may not feel them at all. It doesn’t matter. When you expand your awareness, you move into more light. (Everyone feels particular aspects of change, including the planets, stars, or natural events, in a different way.)

Group I – Light workers and light givers. If you are already giving light and service to others, you may have felt quite tired for the past week. Stepping down light for yourself and other people can feel exhausting. You may need rest, more water, or gentle exercise. The DNA changes when you reach a higher level, and it takes time to process the new light. The light can bring our personal shadow (and the shadows of others) to light. It can point to needed changes, letting go of parts of the identity, or simply moving into more love. Regardless, your energy can feel scrambled, but meditation and rest will bring balance. (Sometimes, we are forced to let go of our focus temporarily. Rest in knowing that the universe makes everything work, and it will support you.)

Group II – Open heart and awakened. The influx of light can actually support your dreams and help in gaining greater creativity with current projects. Stay aware of love and the potential to move more deeply into it. It’s okay if your thoughts feel scrambled and confused from time to time, it will pass. Project happiness and expand your visualizations.

Group III – Mass consciousness.  This group tends to refuse the influx of light; they actually move more deeply into the shadow during these times. They usually become angry or depressed and can pull at your energy more than normal.  It’s helpful to ask for a higher light level and ask the universe to help in clearing and deleting the attachment from lower consciousness. (NOTE: you tend to experience mass consciousness–or lower consciousness– in the areas of our weaknesses and/or karma, it’s important to think about your abilities and good points after an encounter.)

A few tips:

1)      Fire brings purification and cleansing. What do you want to leave behind in your life? It can be as simple as fear or as complex as a whole portion of your life. Trust it’s for the best and take a step ahead.

2)      Fire expands things. It can create a huge flame. When contained and tended, it emanates warmth. Where is fire needed to burn the dross or nourish the inner being?  Where is creativity or illumination needed.

3)      Where do you lack answers? Let the fire blaze a trail. Follow the light. Or imagine a pink flame, which represents love, burning away the darkness in your life.

4)      Write an angel letter, detail your desires, and burn the letter. Imagine the flames taking the desires up to the light. As the light descends, it brings your desires into material form.

5)      Don’t burn out with too many projects, requiring creativity, will power, and thought. Balance by resting, meditating, or napping in a dark, quiet room.  Lions love acting in a lazy way and playing throughout the day. (Don’t indulge.) It’s possible to burn out when we lack true focus. Look honestly: see if your life is balanced.)

6)      Let the solar light lift you up. Act with courage and perseverance when moving into desires and dreams. Let the light expand your purpose, gifts, and aspirations in the coming year.

Clearing Karma

The whole world is clearing karma and moving into light. Increased light actually moves us through our old patterns–the negative repetition in life. Karma is not all bad because it’s how we find both freedom and inner gifts.

The process results from the cultivation of light, the discovery of the inner self and opening the heart. (Opening the heart is how we read and hear higher intuition.) We also become more conscious and realize our habitual reactions and experiences emanate from the self. Most of us feel the same way when we’re upset, so it becomes obvious we’re generating a specific frequency of lower emotion.

Basically, karma is the flow of energy in the opposite direction of growth. It can come from past lives, karma, habits, or events during our lives. It can cause fear, lower emotions, blocks, and patterns. It can also come through genetic or ancestral patterns.

There are often beliefs about ourselves and life If we simplify, we can say it’s where we have difficulty moving forward, understanding with others, and responding properly to life challenges. We often don’t see it until we take steps to move in a new direction.

Here’s information on karma that may help. 

It’s interesting to know that our desire to move forward spiritually, experience love and loving relationships, and improve physically and emotionally often brings karma or old patterns to the surface.

  • Karma tends to appear as strong reactions. It can also appear as the need to control, confusion, the inability to act on a desire, or the stuck feeling sometimes experienced in close relationships. It’s because clearing karma is a process.
  • Clearing karma and/or old beliefs takes time. It is often cleared in small steps such as changing emotions or focusing on one small task daily that leads to a higher level.
  • We’re clearing old soul contracts and moving into a place of “free” and loving connection.
  • Releasing karma can involve small changes with emotions, physical actions, or thoughts. Eventually, this leads to releasing a pattern as well as awareness and freedom.
  • When we clear karma, we regain a beautiful part of the self along with new gifts and talents.

Clearing karma

  1. Notice perpetual reactions, upsets, and dissatisfaction. Karmic cycles comes around more quickly with the current acceleration. (What always happens to you?)
  2. Notice the inner dialog–the words and the feelings. Look for words like always and never.
  3. Pull back from the feelings and dialog. Ask for pink light (universal love) and the presence of the higher self. Send light to part of you that is experiencing pain or upset. Send light to the issue and come back to the present. (Detachment helps in finding the “real” part of you.)
  4. Note how the difference in the feelings and the power of temporary detachment.
  5. Form a strong visual of different behavior, a new outcome, and a feeling of ease.

It’s also helpful to see these moments as energetic challenges and part of spiritual growth. We all have a “lower” side, dark memories, and life challenges, and these energies need integration as we walk the spiritual path. As we become aware of the energies and learn to shift into a higher vibration, we begin the process of creating a positive change in life.

Most wonderfully, we become capable of easing the same state of heaviness and limitation of others as we clear personal karma. There is clarity with giving and flowing. The clarity allows us to know how much to give, envision, and help others. A perfect state of balance for the self and helping others is achieved through this process of self-perfection, surrender, and mastery.
