Message from the Wolves

Physically, I am far away from the wolves, but they never leave me completely. I feel their thoughts at night in my dreams, and I hear their voices when I move into passion and pursue the desires of my soul.

In my darkest moments, I remember all that I have overcome with their help, and my spirit is lifted as I lean on their strength. In my bright moments, they tell me about the world, myself, and the future. I’m always thrilled when I have a message to share, and I hope you can feel the wolves as you read their words.

Here’s their message.

We are everywhere, and we see much. We appear in many dreams, and we shape the future from your consciousness. It is your awareness of right/wrong, balance/imbalance, and desire for independence that shapes the world.

You may wonder how your consciousness shapes the world. Think of it as one big dream with every sentient being contributing to the overall picture of life. Your dreams, longings, desires, and the pulse of your heart – and our heart and others – contribute to the shaping of the world.

There are factors, which make your dream stronger or weaker such as belief, inner power and strength, the process of visualization, and openness to reception of higher energies. Many higher energies are coming into the sphere of your planet. It is part of the reason that your energy runs high and low, sometimes with periods of exhaustion as the body adjusts to the information.

It’s a huge shift on your planet, which will continue for several years. Nature is making her voice heard, your way of life is changing, and you are beginning to know more about your soul. You are always learning, but the curve is more pronounced—and there are many choices about light and darkness.

Nature is changing herself, and everything in your world is changing. Nature is moving into a higher vibration. When she moves into a higher vibration, all of those who are in alignment must do the same. It is what we referred to earlier as crossing the bridge. If you want to cross the bridge, you must change.

Many of the changes are not yet evident to you. The moon rises high in the sky at different times, the shapes of leaves are subtly changing, the weather patterns are in flux, and the air is different with a slightly higher oxygen level.

Deep down, you dreamed this. You dreamed of a time when nature could reassert her beauty and balance, and you dreamed that you would be part of it. You also dreamed that you would have meaningful work, and, for many of you, this is coming as the old forms of the world fade away and take on a new shape.

Yes, it takes time, but you are moving in this direction.

Tell me more about the forces of light.

You already know about them.

Each of you has felt them—the moments that sparkle with beauty and life and the moments when you wish something that is mundane or small, which takes form immediately. However, humans tend to minimize this. They are not big believers in miracles, but this will change.

Magic is encompassing the world and its weaving is everywhere. The stars are awakening, and the earth is awakening. And you are next if you choose to cross the bridge.

For those of you who are awake, you have glimpsed the feeling or the visuals of the future—and the future you. It always feels strange to go back and forth between 2 realities, yet it is the fabric of spiritual evolution. Soon, you will have more power(s), which will help with life.

There are many changes, which are not yet perceived. Light floods your planet, the energy of the earth is changing radically, and there is a new energy, which is coming into your planet.

Can you explain more?

We will talk about the earth. As you know, the earth has energy meridians, ley lines, power points, and sacred sites. These are points of concentrated energy. Cities are often built on specific ley lines, and sacred ceremonies occur on power points. There are also negative points, but we will talk about the positive ones for the moment.

For several centuries, these are known points. As the earth changes, some of inactive ley lines and geographical points are becoming reactivated. So, you are receiving very different kinds of energy. A good example is your description of the wheel of energies, representing each age of 2,000 years, with spokes that close after the age is in full force and open 2,000 years later for next age.

For those who have moved through spiritual initiations, this is a known truth. A similar event is occurring on the earth in the fabric of physical matter. Obviously, it is a great deal of energy, and it will take time for your spirit and bodies to adjust.

I assume it’s a welcome change.

It is of great benefit because there are hidden energies, which are treasures, in the changing of the earth. The new light lifts them to the surface. When you perceive the shift in the light, it enlightens both the body and soul.

For the past few years, spiritual energy determined the frequency of the earth. The earth’s frequency is now rising, and it’s up to meet and engage with it. This is also part of the reason for changes in land masses, including floods, change in weather patterns, etc. Of course, animals and plants recognized it some time ago.

The change is wonderful for people who want to awaken and live in the light; it’s not so easy for people who don’t’ want to change and/or turn inward. They will feel confused, angry, or depressed by the shift. Having said this, it is wise to determine to focus your perception on the shift. There is much you can perceive intuitively.

All of the ley lines and power points were “open” during the magical times of the earth.

Why is this happening?

You already know, but the knowledge has not become clear. Endings are beginnings, and beginnings are endings. In the first beginning, you aligned your spiritual self with the physicality of the earth. Now, you must do it again to rise out of the lower vibrations of this current “dream” of life.

It is more than a dream. It is a grand opportunity to find your gifts, manifest, and live in peace—and as one with every component of the earth while maintaining connection with the heart and inner self.

It is a metamorphosis, and that’s all to be said at this point.

What can we do with this energy?

Walk, stay outside, and garden. Notice the flowers and trees.

Come back into miracle perception. Life is a miracle when you live in the right way.

Find your faith. Know that there is great light in this physical existence. Know it takes time to come together with a collective vibration. BE in a state of faith, and you will find it.

Believe in yourself and your inner power. WE are with you.

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.

Crossing the Bridge: Message from the Wolves

 

From the mountains, forests, and plains, we, the wolves, come to speak to you of the crossing of the bridge, the new journey of consciousness. It is awaiting all of you who work sincerely on the level of higher consciousness. Higher consciousness brings an opening to the heart, a wisdom of spirit, and an inner alignment with all that is good on the earth. The opportunity to cross the bridge, to move past the threshold of old beliefs, will come to all who awakened. We are here to help you, and we hear and feel the desires and request from sincere hearts.

Over the bridge, there is a place for higher collective consciousness in which life moves in a very different way. Higher wishes and desires come into being. Consciousness expands and opens to new realizations that bring more abundance (on every level) into your being. Beyond this is the joy of connection, which involves walking on the earth and feeling her response, surrounding one’s self with people who are loving and want to grow, and examining and expanding the potential for growth.

Crossing the Bridge occurs when you are ready to do the work—to create a transformation that transcends your impressions and beliefs about reality. It also involves a great field of thought and tremendous possibility. While in the middle of spiritual work, your physical life and way of being often does not fit into the plan of the inner self. To transcend this, you must cross a bridge. In the past, you have done this on an individual level, but now you must master it on a collective level.

What is the bridge?

The bridge is a place of higher consciousness where good things happen more often, the energy is lighter and there is more connection with the inner self, and nature moves into harmony. You will feel less of the pull of mass consciousness, and everything good will happen more easily. You arrive in this place through intention, the combination of the will, which is a focus of the mind, and reading life through the heart, which is the true language of the earth. At this point, you hear and see things, which are often considered imaginary in your reality but will appear quite real and factual if you follow them.

Many feats can be accomplished when the energy of the higher collective is complete. It has many names on this planet—and is sometimes spoken of in religious terms—but it is a “real” field of energy that is transforming.

How does it work?

In the past, you have (hopefully) learned how to center, project positive feelings and thoughts, and move through and/or recognize blocks. You also know how to move into the flow. When you are in the flow, life around you changes, supporting you gently and altering the normal pattern of events in your life.

At this point, many, many people have incarnated to experience awakening as a group. When a higher frequency is held for a period of time, everyone in the group feels encouraged, enlightened, and happier about life. When you consciously decide to commit to moving more deeply into your own higher consciousness and personal happiness, you are moving more deeply into higher collective consciousness. You must truly want this to attain it.

We often send hints, images, and intuitions to you so that you find the right thought or image. Actually, all of nature is doing the same for our evolution is part of yours. We are committed to your evolution whether we are here or not.

The earth is raising her frequency, and everything in nature is radiating new vibrations, which should help with your changes and realizations. Walking each day or sitting outside to mediate are also helpful because you absorb a specific vibration from the natural world at this point.

What holds us back from this realization?

Your current personality and way of thought in this incarnation is who you think are—when you are much greater, brighter, and more powerful than what you think. The history of the earth has not always been a positive one, and it may seem that staying “safe” is wisest choice although growing is a much safer one.

Every human being has perceptions and beliefs that inhibit their growth. Every one of you has fears. Sometimes, they are called blocks, but it’s closer to say they are ways of not seeing yourself clearly and not acting on your inner desires.

You can – at least – begin seeing the earth as a better place, correcting your images of what is wrong in your life with imagery and feelings that take you in a positive direction. You can refuse to complain and change instead. You can believe in yourself. You can ask the universe to help you see life in a new way that is ripe with possibility and opportunity. You can learn to change your thoughts and feelings, which limit your life.

Is there anything you want to add?

The bridge represents a new reality, a different frequency, a new way of perceiving life. Every step on the spiritual journey does this if you are open and wise enough to perceive it. It also involves changing your perceptions about life. For example, do you see rain or fire, do we see peace or war – and do you believe in the power in united, positive consciousness?

Do you understand the importance of acting on your heart and trusting the information without asking how or why when led in a specific direction? You must follow your heart and believe in your intuition. These leads to higher energy. When there is enough higher energy, life changes in the most amazing ways. It’s not a miracle although it may feel this way. It is how the universe truly works.

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.

New Moon/Solar Eclipse, portal for change

Feel emotions, clear patterns, and move more deeply into the spiritual nature. It’s how we evolve, and the placement of many planets in water will help in gaining awareness. By contemplating the feeling of inner connection, we can rise above the emotional waves.

The solar eclipse occurred on July 2, marking the calendar of inner and outer changes for the summer. Many metaphysicians and astrologers believe it opened a gateway to higher consciousness.

The eclipse is believed to be one of the bridges between the past and future—a turning point for higher awakening and inner realization. It involves releasing old patterns of the past while embracing a new future that is necessary to find with our hearts

Light and darkness play through the chart. Sun (life), Moon (emotions) and Venus (love, relationships) in Cancer heighten emotions and sensitivity to other people. Cancer is a beautiful water sign ruling the Mother, the Sea, and the yin/yang of emotion. The Great Mother (or Feminine) has many faces, ranging from nurturing to profuse emotion to hiding emotion and repressed feelings. (The feminine is represented by the sea and the earth on this planet.) It may take time and healing to fully resurrect the spirit of the feminine in our culture.

(The feminine is represented by the sea and the earth on this planet.) It may take time and healing to fully resurrect the spirit of the feminine in our culture.

Saturn (karma, limitation, time) asks for review of our lives, particularly with old patterns and karmic cycles. (It’s necessary to make changes to move deeply in an awakened state.) Emotions can reflect our feelings about the self and the past. By altering our emotions, we create a new life. With Saturn’s involvement, inner and outer work are implied. Saturn also rules devotion, hard work, and study, which are needed on the path to awakening.

Sun and Moon sextile (positive) Uranus, opening our minds to new insights and solutions, and Sun/Moon trine (harmonious) Neptune (mysticism, illusion), which can offer ideas and dreams from the “other” side.

Mercury (communications, higher mind) is placed in Leo but moves into retrograde on July 7. It will swing back into Cancer, encouraging confusion between thoughts and emotions for the remainder of July. (The protocol includes expecting delays with travel, communication, and electronics, refraining from purchases of electronics, and resting while reviewing life.)

Venus (love, relationships) moves into Cancer today, heightening the level of emotion about love and personal perception of how others love us. The planet sextiles (positive) Mars, balancing the female/male energies.

Mars (energy, male) is placed in Leo, which ignites our passion for motion in life. It encourages expression of our passion and increases awareness of the heart. Mercury (communication) and Mars (male, energy) squares (tension) Uranus (sudden change, awakening), which asks for moderation – and not sudden action – when contemplating new ideas and thoughts.

Mars is in opposition to Pluto (subconscious, underworld) and asks to see the darkness in ourselves and in the world. It’s not an easy task, but it’s part of knowing where to send light and create a positive shift. Saturn (limitation, karma) conjuncts Pluto, which increases our ambition and desire for success. But many planets are retrograde, and it’s more of a time for contemplation than putting active ideas into form.

Chiron (wounded healer) in Aries is retrograde, which can aid in reflection and insights about healing our wounds.

The chart asks for personal and global insights about darkness in life, but it also opens a portal for spiritual growth. It places our focus on the patterns that play havoc with our emotions, but it also gives the Great Mother (Cancer) to nourish and heal them.

When we see the darkness in ourselves, others, or the world, we have the option of calling on the light. From there, we can find our power, send love, and ask for change. We have the tools to create the desired change, but we must find them within.

Tips:

  1. The energy is intense. It can be useful in creating new, positive patterns in life–if you’re willing to examine our emotions and reactions.
  2. If you’re feeling fear, insecurity, or emotional pain, come back to your heart. Focus on light. Your true identity resides in higher emotions. Contemplate and observe. Choose the path that leads to the inner self.
  3. See this as the right time to change old, familiar (but unhappy) patterns.  You access your inner power when you break old emotional/mental cycles. (Send light to yourself and your life. Visualize the opposite of your experience.) Trust the process. Meditate. Believe in your power to change your personal world.
  4. Many planets are retrograde, and there’s a weird, floating feeling. It’s okay. Go with it. It’s part of the shift. (In a sense, you’re between worlds.)
  5. When you see the darkness in yourself, others, or life, send love and light. Change the story. See it differently. It’s what you came here to do.

Why Does Life Feel So Intense?

You may see master numbers like 11:11 or 22:22 while encountering synchronicity constantly—or you may feel frustrated and overwhelmed emotionally. A small event may send you reeling back into the worst of childhood memories, but you’re totally peaceful after a few minutes of meditation.

What’s happening? The earth (and humanity) are experiencing huge waves of light, solar storms, and fluctuations in geomagnetic field. Astrologically, we’re preparing for a New Moon/Solar Eclipse on July 2. (The chart lines up with aspects of the United States’ natal chart. Think about what you love about it because conjunctions intensify both good and bad.) Mercury retro begins on July 7 and extends throughout the month. A lunar eclipse comes on July 16 along with many retrograde, outer planets. Obviously, the earth and nature are changing with the current cosmic changes.

Yes, the energy will become stronger, and people will probably become more reactive unless the “conscious” group devotes to more meditation.

Why Are People So Emotional?

Light amplifies everything. Think about shining a huge light on a room. You’ll see the dust and dirt hidden beneath the surface. The same is true with the self.

The past is “up” for examination. It usually doesn’t feel good to relive mistakes and painful events. However, it’s how you evolve. However, karma is simply a lower vibration. When you learn how to maintain a higher vibration and/or new vibrations, you displace karma and create new opportunities in life. (Light and/or a higher frequency actually connects you to the quantum field where energy behaves very differently, creating small and large miracles.)

What About Self-Sabotage?

Self-sabotage and mistakes come from a relatively, small part of the self. If you’re experiencing awakening and/or higher consciousness, you’re probably complex with many, different parts of the self.

Only a small part of you (one part of the self) is making mistakes, and it occurs when you’re not awake. This part of the self will share ideas and thoughts when you’re not paying attention. They often sound good because they are part of an old pattern—a program to keep you in the comfort zone of staying the same. You’re noticing self-sabotage because you’re awakening. Otherwise, you wouldn’t notice it. You’d think life wasn’t working, and it wasn’t your fault.

NOTE: It doesn’t help to feel guilt or blame yourself. It’s best to know a small part of you created the dissonance. Send light to it. Promise to do better.

What Can You Do?

It’s important to remember this is a time of awakening. There are huge opportunities for growth in consciousness, manifesting our dreams, and bringing wholeness into this incarnation. (I didn’t say it was easy!)

Meditation and manifestation are very important because meditation teaches connection with the Divine, and manifestation teaches us how to reach the quantum field. They both raise your frequency, which how spiritual change takes place. (It’s not selfish because we learn – and want to – share whatever we manifest with others. It’s particularly true if you’re creating from your heart.)

Focus on the heart in moments of chaos. Ask for help instead of focusing on problems. Call on your angels, guides, and the universe. Imagine having the solution instead of searching for it.

There’s a part of you that knows what to do. You may not find it right away, but it will appear if you focus on it.

Planetary Change: New Moon Abundance

May is a particularly beautiful month. The Sun sits in Taurus, which is ruled by Venus, and it conveys a time of flowers—an abundance expressed by the physical world. For the month of May, the lesson appears as realization of our ability to create and receive abundance in physical form. (Abundance is love, joy, health, beauty, and wealth.)

The New and Full Moons tend to heighten our impression and sensation of energy as we experience the absence and presence of light simultaneously as a group. As the group energies become stronger, our experience becomes more intense. The New Moon on May 4 follows the recent pattern of increased awareness, tension, and opportunity of opening to spiritual light.

The Sun (life) and Moon (moods, emotions) are conjunct (close) in Taurus. They trine (harmonious) Saturn, the giver of structure, lessons, and karma. In this case, we may a clear path through karma or recreate our life in a new form. Sun and Moon sextile (positive) Neptune (mysticism, illusion). This aspect may help with receiving hints or insights from the mysterious, unseen world. Sun and Moon trine (harmonious) Pluto (underworld, regeneration), granting power to move through subconscious limitations and/or the courage to move forward in life.

Mercury (communications, thought) and Venus are placed in Aries, a fast-paced fire sign, which encourages thoughts and insights that create activated change in life. Mercury conjuncts (close to) Venus (love, beauty), aligning the mind with the heart. Mercury and Venus trines (harmonious) Jupiter (good fortune), indicating positive energy with taking steps forward in life. However, both planets square (tension) Saturn (karma, limitation), and this can slow our progress. (It may also indicate the need for review the heart’s true desire before taking a step into expansion.) Mercury and Venus square (tension) Pluto in Capricorn, asking for a review of our personal limitations and a change of perception that may be necessary before altering our lives.

Mercury and Venus represent thought and love. We all have perceptions about the self, life, and love that limit our ability to step into wholeness and abundance. Additionally, we have limiting thoughts about ourselves and life—and we’re only beginning to learn how to love ourselves personally. The aspects with Saturn and Pluto mentioned above are about resourcefulness and learning how to change ourselves through universal love and quantum experiences. (It takes time.)

Mars (action) is placed in Gemini, an air sign, which can cause the mind to interfere with action. Gemini represents the twins, and it’s easy to become lost in the mind before realizing an action has not been completed. Mars squares Neptune (mysticism, illusion), and it causes more confusion to unsettled mind. Fortunately, Mars is in opposition (opposite) Jupiter (good fortune), which is actually a positive aspect. It gives courage and enthusiasm along with a desire to pursue our quest. (Part of the lesson is to pursue a quest, which benefits the “All”. In other words, we need an unselfish quest aligned with universal truth.)

Jupiter is the planet of good fortune and personal expansion. The planet trines (harmonious) Uranus, which represents the New Age. Together, they increase exuberance, good luck, and hopefulness. Jupiter squares (tension) Pluto, which asks for the discovery of aspects of the self (and the world) that slow our progress on the path of life. Through this discovery, we make meaningful change.

Saturn (karma) conjuncts Pluto (underworld, transmutation), bringing ambitions and the desire for change to forefront. Pluto incites ambition and the desire for power, and Saturn modulates it with a desire for disciplined devotion and patience. It can heighten fear, obsession, and desire for power—or it can act as force to tear down incorrect structures in our lives and rebuild them in a new form.

Uranus (sudden change or quantum field) is placed in Taurus and is remarkable for aspects only with Mercury, which can inspire higher thinking, and Jupiter, which brings hopefulness and optimism with future pursuits.

Neptune (mysticism, illusion) in Pisces forms sextiles with Sun, Moon, and Saturn, opening the door to mystical insights through dreams and inner realizations.  A square with Mars (action) can cloud our perception of right action and/or reading of intuitions and insights. Jupiter (good fortune) square Neptune, and it teaches about our misconceptions and illusions in life. It can also reveal our naivety in relationships, particularly about trusting others.

Pluto holds a big space in this chart. In retrograde position, it tends to reveal aspects of life that are hidden—and require unveiling.  With exception of Uranus, every planet in the chart makes an aspect with Pluto, so it is affecting us on almost every level. (There’s a saying, “Everyone has a chapter in life that they don’t read aloud.” Pluto’s current influence may require that we read it aloud—at least to ourselves. When we face our inner darkness, we find strength to recreate by becoming more in alignment with the inner self.)

Planet Retrograde

Jupiter (good fortune, expansion), Saturn (karma, limitation), and Pluto (underworld, transformation) are currently in retrograde. On a basic level, Jupiter asks for review of what keeps us from our dreams. Saturn brings personal lack and limitation to the surface. Pluto shows the hidden darkness within ourselves in our lives. These particular retrogrades ask us to look at what we don’t what to see, but the purpose actually serves us. It’s about seeing the truth and moving in new directions in our lives. (It’s only through the transmutation of the shadow that we find our wholeness.)

The North Node, representing the spiritual direction of group consciousness, is in Cancer. North Node in Cancer asks for respect for feminine, empathy, and kindness. Saturn (limitation, karma) and Pluto (underworld) oppose it. (Saturn and Pluto currently push us into personal power and acquisition of goals, the opposite energy of North Node.) Venus (love, beauty) squares (tension) the North Node. Together, the planets and North Node deliver a message. It’s wonderful to realize goals and make progress in our outer life, but the desires should also promote opening the heart and nurturing others as part of our self-expression and growth.

Notes:

  1. The chart is strong in fire (passion) and earth (grounding).  These elements together encourage passionate motion and quiet time spent in reflection or aligning with nature. There’s a focus on abundance and optimism. (See Sabian symbols below.)
  2. Sun (life) and Moon (emotions) provide a push about contemplating and creating abundance. Trines with Saturn and Pluto give power and insight into creating structures in life. (Release the old life while imagining a new one. Mercury (communications) and Venus (love, partnerships) in Aries push us onward with this pursuit.
  3. Mercury (mind) and Venus (love) square Saturn (limitation) and Pluto (underworld, transformation), encouraging patience and spiritual devotion to overcome energies and karma from the past.
  4.  Life may seem more beautiful than usual because of aspects with Neptune (mysticism, illusion). It heightens intuition and brings answers in a dreamy way.
  5. Higher thought and love are part of evolution. It’s important in creating a new way of being and living. Higher thoughts connect us to the divine, and the right kind of love opens the heart to new possibilities. Right thought and love serve to lift and evolve human consciousness.

Sabian Symbols, based on the work of Lynda Hill

Sun and Moon on Taurus 15, “A Man with a Silk Hat, Muffled Against the Cold, Braves a Storm”.  The symbol refers to a storm. It may appear in the outer world as a shared emotion or difficulty; it could also refer to personal emotions or hardships. The silk hat represents the importance of believing in indications of prosperity and better times—or remaining optimistic while moving through difficulties. (in this chart, it could refer to the influence of Saturn (karma) and Pluto (underworld) as we clear the substance of the influences of past memories and hardships.

Mercury sits on Aries 27, “Through Imagination, A Lost Opportunity Is Gained”. It’s a marvelous symbol for the New Moon, which depicts the power of manifestation—the ability to bring thoughts into form by imagining and visualizing lost hope, opportunities, and joy. It points to the power of using the mind and communication with the Divine to recreate one’s life in a wonderful way.

Venus is placed on Aries 18, “An Empty Hammock Hangs Between Two Lovely Trees”.  Venus represents love, partnerships, and beauty. Relaxing in nature with a soft focus on dreams can sometimes activate the inner self, enhancing the alignment with manifestation—the development and creation of a desirable life.  

Mars sits on Gemini 23, “Three Fledglings in a Nest High Up in a Tree.” Birds are creatures of the air, which can represent the messengers of divine messages. Again, the image of resting in a safe place appears in the astrological line-up.  As time passes and the fledglings grow, they will master the power of soaring through the air. (Air represents thought, so we may develop our ability to cultivate thoughts that lead to a higher understanding of the spiritual world.)

Jupiter is on Sagittarius 24, “A Bluebird, a Sign of Good Luck and Happiness, Is Standing at the Door of the House”. A symbol for optimism appears again with the bluebird of joy. Awareness of good signs, energies, and the hints that point to synchronicity, we can open to a tide of good fortune although we journey through the storm, symbolized by the Sun and Moon.
