March Full Moon Forecast

Image by Amanda Clark

 

Appearing on March 9 at 1:45 pm ET, March’s Full Moon is a special one, opening the door to the energies of the spring as we prepare for the equinox on March 19. It’s a super moon—an intense event followed by even more super moons. The energy will be quite strong.

Sun is in Pisces, bringing the floating feeling of water. Sun sextiles (gently positive) Mars, which increases enthusiasm and energy, Jupiter, expanding optimism and good fortune, Saturn, bestowing patience and perseverance, and Pluto, which gives desire and determination Moon (emotions) is in the opposite sign of Virgo, an earth sign that likes order, precision, and routine. Likely, we’ll move between both extremes.

The Moon bestows excellent energy in many areas of life. Moon trines Mars (action), heightening emotional strength, Jupiter (expansion), bringing emotional warmth and generosity, Saturn (structure, karma), heightening organization skills, and Pluto (will, transformation), conferring emotional power and will.

With many lovely aspects, we have to question why the world feels so heavy and chaotic? Since 2020 began, we’ve experienced strong aspects with Pluto, which rules and influences collective energy. Pluto also reveals the underlying darkness, which is hidden in the world. Mars conjuncts (close to) Saturn (limitation, karma), and the two planets carry heavy energy from the underworld. Their purpose is to reveal the energy of the darkness, so we can find the discipline and strength (and methods) to overcome it. At the moment, the news and other forces spread lower information such as fear and panic through broadcasts. We’re only begun our practice of changing the world through higher vibrations, and it requires time.

Moon opposes Neptune (illusion, mysticism), clouding our vision and giving a sense of uncertainty (For example, we knew rain was needed for Australia, but it’s more difficult to create a solution to the coronavirus, the devastation of natural resources, and political instability.) Metaphysics teaches that the universe will provide the information and the “how” if we hold to a higher vision. (The answers may come and go. If we listen to our heart, the solutions will come.)

Mercury (communications) remains in retrograde until March 10, which will open the door to action desires, and potential plans. Mercury (communications) is in Aquarius, an air sign, which heightens mental ability and originality. The planet sextiles Uranus (sudden change, quantum field), opening our consciousness to new streams of thought. (It’s a good time for focusing on aspects of life that require change.)

Venus (love, relationships) is placed in Taurus, an earth sign ruled by Venus. This placement helps in seeing beauty of all kinds—in nature, love, and life. Venus squares Saturn (karma), giving energy to work through karma and beliefs based on life experiences that relate to love. Venus conjuncts (close to) Uranus (quantum field, sudden change), and this gives the power to move into a state of unconditional love to create positive change. Venus conjunct Uranus can also make relationships feel exciting and intense.

Mars (action, male energy) conjuncts Jupiter (good fortune, expansion), increasing our ability to move the direction of new paths and possibilities. It heightens energy, strength, and confidence. Mars conjuncts (close to) Pluto (subconscious, transmutation), and this aspect can give courage in moving through old blocks and patterns, or it can lead to egoic grasps of power. (Any aspect with Pluto applies to group and collective consciousness, i.e. the direction of the higher and lower self on a global level.)

Jupiter (expansion, good luck) conjuncts Saturn (limitation, karma), which can cause a push me/pull me energy between warmth and enthusiasm and contraction/limitation. Jupiter and Saturn are placed in Capricorn, a male, earth sign that rules ambition and structures in the outer world. It’s an odd combination of death/rebirth that can give the vision to create a new world from old structures—at its best. (Some of its negative aspects are currently shown through 5G, destruction of national parks and resources, etc. However, many other alternatives are present if we hold the vision.)

Saturn (limitation, karma) squares Uranus (sudden change, quantum field), which can make changes feel frustrating. It throws unexpected obstacles, changes, and delays on the visible path of life, but it also asks for greater flexibility, openness, and the ability to go with the flow. When we can take this step, life realigns with the correct path. (It’s important to acknowledge the many paths that lead to the top of the mountain.)

The Big Conjunctions

Mars (action), Jupiter (expansion), and Saturn (limitation) conjunct Pluto (underworld, transmutation). All four planets are in Capricorn, the sign of the goat, which is accompanied by the desire to climb and create structures in the outer world.

Conjunctions between Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto in Capricorn continue throughout 2020, and no one knows exactly what it means because it doesn’t happen very often. Having said this, it affects collective consciousness, which always involves a choice. If we truly want a higher reality, we must work on it through higher consciousness, positive visuals, and emitting positive vibrations. (We also have to look at the darkness with a clear eye to discern bigger truths. Otherwise, we don’t know where we need to work.) Also, we have to believe in our power to create, but this is the basic work of metaphysics—a task that most of us agreed to take on in this lifetime.

Tips:

  • Sun (life) and Moon (emotions) provide excellent energy in many aspects of life, including vitality, determination, positive emotions and will. Tune into the positive vibrations and notice what you love about life. With Sun in Pisces and Mercury (communications) in retrograde, there may be a passive, slightly tired feeling.
  • Meditate and/or become very still. Let your heart find the answers for your life. Moon’s opposition with Neptune can make solutions feel hazy or unclear, but you can overcome it with this technique.
  • Mercury (communication, mind) in Aquarius gives brilliant insights and new solutions. Take time to consider life from different perspectives.
  • Venus (love) in Taurus provides a wonderful love vibration. It can help in aligning with the beauty of nature, the movement of the trees, or the color of the sky. Slow down and take in the first sightings of spring.
  • Jupiter (good fortune) and Saturn (limitation/karma) are conjunct. On one level, it’s time to release particular aspects of life. On another, it’s important to ponder the creation of the next step in your life.
  • The Big Conjunction between Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto is about understanding, exploring, and experiencing the collective’s influence on a personal and global level. For those of us on a higher level, it’s important to realize how the placement of consciousness affects the world. (Work on those higher vibrations and positive visuals.)

 

 

Sabian Symbols, based on the work of Lynda Hill

Sun sits on Pisces 20, “A Table Set for an Evening Meal” indicates provision of one’s necessities and the promise of nourishment and care. The food, table, and company are waiting, and the best meals come with connection and a positive attitude from all who eat at the table. It may represent an assurance from the universe that our needs will be met, and we will find the necessary support on our spiritual journey.

Moon is placed on Virgo 20, “A Caravan of Cars Headed for the Promised Land”.  The image depicts a journey of people to a promised land, which provides a new way of life.  It can represent leaving behind stagnation, habits, and repeated cycles to move into new opportunities with like-minded people.

Mercury is on Aquarius 29, “A Butterfly Emerging from a Chrysalis”. The image reflects the magic of awakening—a transformation into a new, beautiful form. (Mercury involves thought, so we may encounter new methods of thinking about ourselves and life such as the power of the inner self!)

Venus sits on Taurus 6, “A Bridge Being Built Across a High Narrow Gorge”, which is a perfect symbol for Venus in Taurus. Venus rules love, and it is love that leads us through impossible places that bridge old and new consciousness.

Mars is on Capricorn 16, “School Grounds Filled with Boys and Girls in Gymnasium Suits”. The school ground points to a group learning experience that is physical in the outdoors. School children are often a mix of many groups of people with different levels of intelligence, who are learning together. (Mars rules energy at large, and it could refer to our current state with a mixture of individuals who want to learn about the world and themselves in physical reality.)

Jupiter is placed on Capricorn 22, “A General Gracefully Accepting Defeat”. It’s not the game; it’s how we play it. If we play by the rules of the universe, it may look like a loss in the outer when it’s a truly a gain in the inner world because we’ve remained true. It’s discovering true nobility of character and knowing when to let go.

Personal Evolution: The New Revolution

 

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

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

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

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

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

What is Personal Evolution on a Higher Level?

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

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

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

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

Why Is It Important?

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

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

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

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.

Wolf Moon, Full Moon Forecast

Image by Josephine Walls

 

2020 is a 4 year, and it begins with a big bang—an eclipse on January 10 with wild conjunctions and energy.  4 is a male number, and it involves putting our mental and spiritual energies into physical form.

In many ways, it is about building a spiritual structure on the physical level. My personal feeling is that it involves a core structure of higher collective consciousness as expressed in physical form. This means YOU and your alignment with your inner self, the rising energy of the earth and the collective along with a fierce focus on the highest good to create a new reality.

The Full Wolf Moon appears on January 10 at 2:21 pm ET, and it is accompanied by an eclipse. Eclipses are a reset, and this is not a comfortable one. The Lunar Eclipse opposes Mercury (communication), Saturn (karma), and Pluto (underworld, transformation), which causes conflicting thoughts and feelings. Sun, Mercury, Saturn, and Pluto square (tension) Eris, the dwarf planet of discord. (We’ve all experienced discord in our personal lives, and we know how to return to center and look for the inner self when we feel upset or sense discord.)

Part of the difficulty lies with the Moon, which represents emotion, particularly when placed in Cancer, a water sign. Cancer represents the divine mother and feminine grace.  The chart contains 6 planets in earth signs (including North Node), and the Moon in Cancer, which opposes or interferes with the Capricorn earth element.  Moon opposes (conflicting feelings) Mercury (thought), Saturn (karma), and Pluto (transformation). Moon in Cancer is associated with feelings intuition, caution, vulnerability, maternal feelings and security, which asks for a wise read in these aspects of life.

Sun, Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto (life, mind, expansion, limitation, and transformation) are in Capricorn, an earth sign. Capricorn is associated with discipline, hard work and maturity. It rules the skeletal structure, joints and knees. Associations include diplomacy, achievement, seriousness, tactfulness and success. Capricorn lends structure and form (or grid work) for materialization of passion, thoughts and emotion. Dedication and application teach how karma is overcome – not only through applied effort on the material plane but through the grace of the Universe on the highest plane.

Saturn conjunct Pluto is one of the more influential aspects of the chart. It’s interesting as Saturn (limitation, karma, and structure) is about building structures, which is implied in the number 4. It’s also about authority, which metaphysics teaches is adherence to the inner self as the greatest truth.  We’ll travel through another conjunction in September. Pluto implies transformation and change through looking at the shadow side of the self–and the world. The shadow side can refer to what we don’t see about others or the direction of our life. For example, we may give people the benefit of the doubt when they are not aligned with our highest and best interest. (Sometimes, they change their behavior when we see them clearly.) It can also refer to our state of consciousness such as the misaligned belief of thinking loving kind behavior elicits the same from others when boundaries are a necessity. (Regardless, it’s a state that we can’t see until Pluto reveals it.)

Mercury (mind, thought) in Capricorn conjuncts (close to/amplifies) Saturn and Pluto, heightening the strong aspect between Saturn/Pluto. Mercury is the mind, and only the higher mind can be trusted to convey truth. It’s best to give space and time to thoughts before believing they are real and/or taking action.

Venus (love, beauty) is in Aquarius, which is helpful in bringing our hearts together for higher consciousness and collective work. From this perspective, we can truly feel the goodness that results from coming together as a community. This feeling can become stronger than fear and lead us to solutions, which haven’t been explored in the past. Venus squares (tension) Mars (male, assertion), creating tension between the sexes and the two sides of the self. Mars sits in Sagittarius, encouraging creative endeavors and actions that propel us on the journey of the soul.

 

Neptune

The Saving Grace

The aspects in the chart, which can lead us through the current challenges, lie with Neptune, planet of mysticism, idealism, and illusion. When planets form positive aspects with Neptune, we can feel harmony and connection with the divine. Neptune enhances creativity and reception of spiritual concepts and information. (A good symbol is a beautiful, medieval cathedral that is associated with miracles.)

The Moon in Cancer trines (harmonious) Neptune, allowing our higher emotions to receive uplifting energy and emotional insights. Sun (life) and Mercury (thought) sextile (weaker but harmonious aspect) Neptune. By opening our minds and lives to the Divine, we can receive messages and insights for guidance during this odd time.

Tips

  • This time calls for patience, persistence and dedication with spiritual life and outer life. Earth signs are about structures and building in the physical world.
  • We will see our own shadow and the world’s shadow during this time. Both are best viewed when firmly anchored in the inner self. Observe and send light whenever possible.
  • Emotions, associated with the Moon, are part of the challenge. We want the right amount of empathy, a clear read with intuition, a balance with security and risk, and good judgement when expressing our emotions. (Wait if you’re not sure.)
  • Mercury (thought) confuses the matter with oppositions with the Moon. Meditate for a clear read. Don’t’ trust all of your thoughts.
  • The insightful aspects of the chart lie in quiet contemplation of spiritual concepts and asking for help from the Divine.

Sabian Symbols, based on Lynda Hill’s work

Sun (life) and Mercury (mind) sit on Capricorn 21, “A Relay Race”, which symbolizes creating a victory through cooperation and teamwork. On a higher level, it could refer to the importance of collective consciousness, which consists of individuals working on a higher vision.

Moon is placed on Cancer 21, “A Prima Donna Singing”, which can represent a First Lady singing in an opera or a demanding, controlling type of person. It could represent the choice necessary in aligning with positive emotions for the duration of the eclipse.

Venus sits on Aquarius 27, “An Ancient Pottery Bowl Filled with Violets”. The image depicts a simple and gentle example of beauty as a response to life. It urges us to find joy and meaning with the humble but pleasing aspects of life.

Mars is on Sagittarius 5, “An Old Owl Perched High in a Tree”. The owl typically represents Minerva, the goddess of wisdom. Owls can see in the darkness, and their head turns 360 degrees. They can perceive aspects of life that are usually hidden. The symbol points to the power of observation, particularly when taking action or asserting the self in life.

Jupiter is placed on Capricorn 9, “An Angel Comes Carrying A Harp”. It’s a beautiful symbol for Jupiter, the planet of expansion that helps with expansion of dreams. It encourages our natural ability to hear and feel the harmonious side of life.

Saturn and Pluto sit on Capricorn 23, “A Soldier Receiving Two Awards for Bravery in Combat”. Courage, skill, and bravery are awarded in this symbol, but the question remains about where we choose to act bravely and use our skills—probably not in an actual battle (For many of us, it’s internal battle to free the inner self.) The symbol can also represent receiving compensation for acts completed in the past.

Moving Out of Fear and Into Love

Image by Tamara Halabarec

 

There are actually good reasons for feeling fear. First of all, we always feel fear when we act on the heart because the world teaches us to go in the opposite direction (away from the inner self.) The outer world of duality resists the motion of wholeness associated with finding the inner self.

Yet, nothing is as fulfilling as connecting with the inner self, and life changes when we live from the heart. We learn to identify the energy associated with our soul. We gain awareness of energy as a whole and learn how it resonates with us. We learn how to create our inner desires, find our gifts, and share them with others.

There are also other reasons for feeling fear. They involve mass consciousness, taking a leap in faith, listening to the heart (when it doesn’t make sense), trusting the universe, and resistance.

1) When we step into the light, it involves a leap. It means letting go of our current life and believing whatever appears will work. It’s not easy, and the ego often feels resistance (or fear) about taking a big step.

Take the first step and continue by repeating until it works or morphs into another form. You will find help; the universe will not abandon you.

2)  The outer world does not encourage the huge wave of awakening. When we expand into our inner self, we can receive a wave of fear from mass consciousness (the lower emotions of the world at large.)

If you focus on the inner self as often as possible, you will find a way to move through the resistance. (It’s not easy, but you can move through it by using your will and determination.)

3) Mass consciousness resists personal change. Mass consciousness is a compilation–or cloud of energy–based on the lowest emotions and thoughts on the planet. When we feel a lower emotion such as fear and/or anxiety, mass consciousness increases the lower feeling. It’s helpful to ask the universe to delete the connection with lower energies and align us with the inner self.

The universe responds when we ask for help. It hears us more easily if we ask often and meditate.

4)  When we step into love and the inner self, it means letting go of our current life and believing whatever appears will work. It’s not easy, and the ego often feels resistance (or fear) about taking a big step. It’s normal to feel afraid, uneasy, or agitated before taking a step, and we have to trust the universe. The universe always has a bigger, better plan.

Let go and trust. If you feel the light, it is leading you. Go forward!

5) It’s easier to feel fear about our destiny than it is to take a step. “Destiny’ is simply the soul’s path—the universe’s way of choosing experiences of teaching us to move into a higher place of being. It’s easiest to begin with a desire of the heart. Manifestation is the expression of an expanded vision of the beautiful and good aspects of self that originate in the heart.

Learn how to use tools such as visualization, positive thoughts, and the power of love.  Study angels, read books, and practice changing how you see your life. (There is a great network of “love”, which will support you.)

6) The pressure and feelings of fear will lessen when you decide to move in the direction of the soul. The pressure lessens as you listen and commit to your inner self. The relief is often immediate!

7) Moving into awakening can also bring feelings of uncertainty to the surface. While we may feel unhappy in our experience of “reality”, relinquishing control can feel difficult. We have expectations of how life should look and feel. 

Control comes from the ego. Allow your “reality” to rearrange itself in a new manner. It’s okay. The new reality will be much better.

8) When we step into intuition, it can take time to distinguish between the soul and ego—and to have a consistent feeling of direction. (This can feel frightening.) The inner self asks us to listen with the heart. It means following intuition or inner guidance as opposed to the voice of the outer world. This may feel strange or uncomfortable in the beginning. Often, the directions don’t make sense.

9) Over time, we learn to trust the inner voice and distinguish feelings and direction.After every leap, we trust the inner voice more. But it’s only in the area of the jump. There’s still more ground to cover.  We often feel the resistance of the lower self and the world, but it passes. Part of this occurs from learning to believe in the inner self, the true part of the self. (We also learn to believe in the universe’s ability to support us—or faith.)

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.

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.)
