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.

Clearing Karma

Image by Dennis D. Potokar

 

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.

Full Moon Forecast: Intense Weather Ahead

 

The Full Moon appears on July 5 at 12:44 am ET, accompanied by an eclipse, the last in a series of three. The Full Moon is particularly potent with the presence of the eclipse, and it tends amplify whatever we think or feel. Think of all of the energies on the earth in a heightened state along with the growth and expansion associated with the Full Moon.

Fortunately, we’ve had practice with distancing ourselves from lower emotions and aligning with higher frequencies in past months. We’re probably ready for the reset that eclipses can bring.  However, it requires skill to deal with the energies in general, particularly the upset of those around us.  (A place of peace is a good beginning.) It’s important to stay in higher frequencies when possible as eclipses can raise our light level – if we receive the energy.

It’s a feminine chart with many placements in water and earth—an indication of the power of passive manifestations (seeing a desired outcome in the mind and watching it take form.) It’s a wonderful time to focus on manifestations and meditation. Five planets in retrograde (Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, and Pluto) tend to quiet the energies.

Sun (life) is in Cancer, a water sign represented by the crab—and the mother who rules the feminine and the sea. Moon (emotions) is in Capricorn, the earth sign that rules structure. Several strong influences run through the chart including Mercury (communications) in retrograde, Venus moved direct, making it easier to send love and light, and Mars (action) moved into Aries, which denotes forward movement.

Sun (life, self) conjuncts (close to) Mercury (communications), which opens the door to the higher self, which can find the truth and choose the right answer. Sun (life) opposes Jupiter (good fortune, expansion), creating a tendency to overindulge and become overly optimistic. It can also lead to overworking. Sun trines (harmonious) Neptune (idealism, mysticism), allowing an influx of mystical information and access to our inner muse.

Moon (emotions) opposes Mercury, increasing duality between emotion and thought—or the sensation of bouncing between the two forms of expression. Moon (emotion) trines Uranus (sudden change, quantum field).  This aspect helps in perceiving the unusual and intuitive abilities that are inherent within the self. It increases our intuitive feelings, opens our consciousness to exciting, new activities and/or happenings. It also allows greater perception of communication from the universe–and deeper understanding of the self. Moon (emotions) is conjunct (close to) Jupiter, and it’s  a wonderful aspect, increasing faith in inherent quality of goodness and encouraging our desire to help others on a global level.

Mercury is in retrograde, which confuses the flow of everyday life–a state that has become familiar. With Mercury in Cancer and the approach of the eclipse, emotions may feel intense. It’s good to remember that Mercury rules more than communications or the mind. It also rules intuition and the higher mind, which gives connection with universal energies. (We can go into our heart and connect to the higher mind when we truly need direction.) Mercury sextiles (positive) Uranus (quantum field, sudden change), and the aspect can give bursts of inner knowing and/or brilliant ideas.

Venus (love, partnerships, material wealth) is direct in Gemini, increasing harmony in relationships, success with business and money, and heightening appreciation of beauty. When Venus is direct, the world feels better and happier. Placed in Gemini, Venus helps with short-term travels, creating beauty and art through new ideas, and amplifying love. Venus trines (harmonious) Saturn (limitation, structure), and this helps in perceiving the “good” in others and concepts relating to rebuilding our lives on the basis of love.

Mars is in Aries, a fire sign, which helps in moving ahead in life, acting on projects, and developing physical strength and inner willpower. Mars conjuncts (close to) Chiron, the wounded healer, and the aspect brings the pain to the surface so we can see the truth and make changes. The aspect also helps in bringing our gifts to world to help and serve others. Sun (life), Moon (emotions), and Mercury (thought) square Mars, creating tension between the flow of the way we feel, think, and live and the desire to take action. We may need to move into new thoughts, perceive life in another sense, or create new habits of feeling emotion to take needed steps.

Jupiter (expansion), Saturn (limitation, structure), and Pluto (underworld, transformation) return to the conjunction in Capricorn, which began early in the year, marking on the onset of the corona virus and changes of structure in the outer world. However, the planets are in retrograde, which may contract the flow of energy. (Let’s see it happening.) Aspects with Pluto tend to reveal hidden truths, which are not comfortable, but they lead to evolution and transformation.

Tips:

  1. The energies will feel intense through July 4-6 when we’ll feel the combined energies of the Full Moon and the eclipse most. Use the energy to manifest a higher frequency and happier life. Spend time focusing on the sensation of the inner self.
  2.  The feminine energies in the chart heighten emotion, but they also ground and support our energy. It’s a good time to focus on passive manifestation, the art of visualizing what you want.
  3. There are many supportive aspects in the chart  Venus (love, material goods) direct helps with love and money, Sun conjunct Mercury increases the ability to tap into brilliant answers and ideas, Sun trine Neptune links the consciousness to mystical information, and Mars in Aries wants us to move ahead with our plans.
  4. Admittedly, there are perplexing aspects. Mercury is retrograde, causing mild chaos and disorderly thoughts. Our emotions and thoughts can feel contradictory. Our habits and way of life may frustrate efforts in expression of thoughts and action.  Sun opposition Jupiter expands our need to overdo. Nevertheless, there are good aspects that open the mind to divine inspiration and higher realization.
  5. In 2020, we seem to have a lack of easy charts. Perhaps, we’re graduating to a higher level of light.

When The World Feels Strange

Image by Dodi Ballada
Why does everything feel strange?
Everything feels strange because we are moving through a dispensation of light, which will last another 5-10 years. We’re between the Age of Pisces and the Age of Aquarius when light rains down on the planet—and the Precession of Ages, a 26,000 year cycle.
We’re also moving through a cleansing and reveal of truth (both darkness and light) on this planet. Currently, we’re in an eclipse cycle that heightens emotions, and there are aspects with Eris, which bring discord.
For awakened people like you, it means moving more deeply into the inner self and radiating a higher vibration whenever possible. We can also radiate peace and love whenever possible.
Why does the energy feel so strong?
In the Aquarian Age, we become enlightened as a collective, meaning we feel the joined energy of everyone. The collective energy amplifies feelings and thoughts. We have a choice of choosing the higher or lower collective, and we have a choice about personal alignment.
The group initiative means we feel everyone else. On certain days, we are together in the light. When we’re not aligned with the inner self, we can feel everyone else’s shift. We also feel mass consciousness at the grocery store, when watching the news or scrolling through social media. (We consistently experience oscillation between light and darkness.) By anchoring in the heart or the inner self, we stay centered and balanced. (It’s one of the many lessons.)

One day, I feel fine. The next day, I feel terrible, tired, or emotional. What’s causing this?

There’s definitely an unsettled feeling. Oddly, we may feel it more when we’re very connected. Our inner awareness and intuition bring heightened awareness of change.

Earth is raising her frequency and pivoting between several physical points on her axis. (No, it’s not a polar shift.) The old points of alignment feel good to our bodies. The new points of alignment bring in an entirely different energy. The shift of the earth causes changes in the cycle of life. The days are longer, and the shadows look different. Everything is growing at an accelerated rate. There are significant changes with animals and birds.

The earth exudes a rhythm, which we feel physically and emotionally. The rhythm is interrupted as the earth rocks on her axis. Hypothetically, the motion occurs to shake up old patterns and help in raising our vibration. (Be patient. Everyone is adjusting.)

The new energy can feel exhilarating or exhausting. It depends on what we’re doing, the placement of our consciousness, and our overall frequency. The energy also brings awareness of health issues, emotional/mental patterns for clearing.

On the positive side, it’s much easier to manifest when “material” reality is unstable. Energy flows more easily and adapts to new forms. The important part is taking time to sit, center, and focus on visualization. (It also helps to walk and garden.) And there are also moments of feeling divinely connected.

Are there other reasons for feeling weird?

Yes. the energy is changing rapidly and radically. Aspects with Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto are about creating a new structure in life (and in the world), revealing suppressed darkness, and finding the power for transformation. Light workers are only beginning to learn how to work together on a collective level; it requires all of our skills and love.

We’re dealing with our darkness and light—and seeing more about the political, economic world. In the big picture, it helps in creating a vision for a better world as well as learning how to send light to one another.

NOTE: Recent astrological charts presented aspects to help in becoming aware of karma as well as mystical, healing aspects that require opening to love. It’s wonderful, but it’s not always easy!

What can I do about it?

Hang on for the ride. Accept the ups and downs. Nurture yourself on tired days and achieve on good days. Understand the rhythms of the energy. Nothing lasts forever; it changes from day to day.

Check in with your inner self. Ask if today is a good day for errands, emails, new clients, or deep talks. Make the physical body stronger and spend time observing the flow of nature. Feel your flow. Trust that we’re moving into a time of greater love. (Don’t worry about the people who don’t feel the fluctuations or step into awakening. Stay centered and trust your inner self.)

Make time to open up to your inner nature through meditation, and listen to the universe!

Aligning with the Inner Self

 

Our perception expands when we’re connected. Colors become brighter, love grows more intense, and opportunity beckons. Everything vibrates on a different rhythm. The universe responds, and life changes its course.

Inner connection leads to universal truths. It’s the best way of creating harmony and finding truth when the world moves through change.

Here are a few tips for finding more of your inner connection:

  1. Focus on the beauty. Notice the variations of the sky, the touch of the wind, the color of the earth, the song of the birds, or the motion of the flowers. Watching and observing act to open the heart, allowing the inner voice (intuition) to speak.
  2. Meditate daily—and focus on your inner presence to find your way. Like a light in the darkness, it shines and points out the right direction. Sometimes, it’s only a step, but it eventually becomes a path.
  3. Release the noise. The part of you, which is not real, speaks in a loud voice. Let go of the roar. Observe whenever possible. Listen for the quiet, soft voice.
  4. Engage the imagination. (Imagination is part of creating your reality.) Imagine the next few hours as “better.” Imagine having an incredible connection with your inner self. Imagine something new and different.
  5. Remember the love. Send love to yourself. (Try pink light if it feels difficult.) Think of the people who love you, the animals that fall at your feet, and how love looks when reflected on the face of a “beloved.” (The whole universe is based on love; it’s the light that dances with matter.)
  6. Trust and move into the unknown. It’s a human tendency to repeat the “known.” Sometimes, the unknown contains gestalt answers—insights, which can totally change your perception. It’s okay not to know. Embrace it. (The universe is on your side.)
  7. Watch the energy. Energy changes in accordance with our moods and thoughts. It alters in the presence of different people and situations. It can reflect our past, or it can change in a few seconds and present a new paradigm. Energy accumulates through right action and meditation. Listen to your inner guidance. Take the small steps, which seem inconsequential. (Barbara Brennan related a message from her guides to remove a large stick from the path behind her house. Everything turned haywire until she cleared the path.) Small steps accumulate and eventually tilt the balance into greater consciousness, power, and awareness.
  8. Your inner self is a reflection of the soft, quiet voice, the beauty of nature, and the wonderful realities that you imagine.
  9. Trust the process. Inner work will eventually lead to a higher, happier state of being.

New World, New Moon Forecast!

Image by Dodi Ballada

The New Moon is in Gemini, which rules the mind, communication, the wind, clouds, birds and all creatures of the air. It presents  several planets in mutable (changeable) signs, which tend to represent the two sides of the self, the ego and soul. (In alchemy, we learn about carefully integrating the ego and acting on the soul.) With Sun, Moon, Mercury, and Venus in Gemini, we also experience fluctuation with the past and future selves–who were before the pandemic and who we will become in the future.
The New Moon appears on Friday, May 22nd at 1:38 pm. Sun (life), Moon (emotions), and Mercury (mind, communications)  in Gemini sharpens our ability to speak, write, and express our truth; it’s also easy to become lost in the ramblings of the mind when we lose our center. (Every sign has negative and positive qualities.)
Sun and Moon trine (harmonious) Jupiter (expansion), Saturn (limitation), and Pluto (subconscious, transformation), which helps in finding our way through recent changes in life. (Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto are believed to influence the current situation, and they are in retrograde, which eases the feeling and energy of the current collective. Sun and Moon square (tension) Mars, the planet of action); the square elicits strong emotion and frustration/impatience as associated with action.
Venus
Venus
One of the challenging aspects is Venus (love, relationships) retrograde in Gemini. Venus squares (tension) Neptune (mysticism/illusion). Duality is intrinsic in the placement as we long for the love, found in dreams, and experience dissatisfaction in personal relationships. It’s a confusing aspect and placement that reveals what we truly want with love, how our energies are out of alignment, and a perpetual desire for boundaries and reassessment. Fortunately, Venus square Neptune also inspires creativity, heightens perception of beauty, and opens us to the recognition of the reality/illusion of our dreams about love.
  • Mercury (thought) in Gemini is beautifully placed for excellent communication, mental inspiration, and perceiving the higher mind. Mercury conjuncts (close to) Venus (love), and it creates a wonderful harmony between the heart and mind. Mercury squares Neptune (mysticism, illusion), which can bring doubt and confusion about our decisions and thoughts. With this aspect, we have to use intuition and align with the heart to know if our perception is true or false. (Think of the contradictions currently presented by the media.)
  • Mars (action) in Pisces is often confused on an emotional level. As mutable, water sign, it wants to love its way through life on a cosmic level, but life calls for boundaries, physical action, and speaking our truth. Mars in Pisces becomes frustrated when others fail to perceive intuitive messages, and it can lead to feelings of victimization and anger.
  • Jupiter (expansion), Saturn (limitation), and Pluto ( underworld, transformation) remain conjunct as the three rulers of the current time (pandemic).  Fortunately, they are moving in a retrograde direction, which weakens the energy. However, we will continue to see what’s hidden in the darkness of the world, and, hopefully, make discoveries that align us with nature–and the universe!
Tips:
1) The forecast is pleasant in comparison to recent months. Trines with Sun/Moon are uplifting, and they bring feelings of optimism.
2) The quantity of mutable signs indicates that we’re experiencing dual aspects of life and self, which increase the sensation of polarity. We may feel a pull between the past and future or the ego and soul. (When we oscillate between aspects of the self, we’re actually deciding what we want to create in the future.)
3) Squares with Mercury (communication), Venus (love), and Neptune (mysticism/illusion) can cloud issues and understanding. It’s necessary to use intuition to move through life.
4) Venus (love) square Neptune in retrograde brings dissatisfaction with relationships. By learning what we truly want (the opposite of our experience), we can find it–particularly through appropriate boundaries and expressing (and identifying) the true feelings of our heart.
5) Mars in Pisces intensifies emotions and acts on feelings. It’s best to observe thoughts and feelings–and detach before taking action.

Finding Light and Love in Challenging Times

 

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

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

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

Additional notes

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