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!

Working with Current Energies and Light

At the beginning of 2020, I knew we would travel through a collective experience. I’d hoped it would occur as an experience of higher frequencies, but it’s still possible to create this state. In several of my lowest moments, I have experienced transcendental light–and this is the current challenge.
My earlier posts referred to “Crossing the Bridge” as a new state of awareness and awakening. It continues to exist, and we inhabit it by extending our minds and emotions into moments of happiness, kindness, and appreciation for life. (It’s also possible to take better care of our bodies and the planet.)
Please take time to cultivate energy in any positive form and to avoid lower forms of energy that may travel through people, news, and events. Share the “positive” whenever possible. For example, China cut emissions by 100 million tons since January, thousands of undisturbed sea turtles in India gathered to lay eggs, and Norway voted for NO deforestation.

 

Specific Light Work with Current Energies

  • Surround yourself with white light. Ask the light to fill every particle of your body, every molecule, and the spaces between the molecules. Let the light exude from you, filling the room and extending for one quarter mile around you. Hold it there for a couple of minutes. It should immediately raise your vibration as well as pushing away the fear and upset of others. (Initially, I tried taking on the fear and lower energies of others, but I soon realized their feelings came from a habit of aligning with lower vibrations. It’s easier to raise your personal vibration, and others can make a choice to join in—or not.)
  • Waves of lower vibrations radiate from mass consciousness at regular intervals. The waves can feel like panic, nervous energy, or lethargy. They tend to occur mid-morning, mid-afternoon, and between 6-8 pm in my world—although the times may differ in your world. (As soon as they are identified as waves of mass consciousness, they dissipate. When you realize it’s not your energy, you no longer identify with it. The energy moves away to someone who is more susceptible.)
  • On the subject of waves, you will feel fear occasionally. Counter it by sending light to yourself and your loved ones. Affirm that you and everyone in your world is safe. Express gratitude for this wonderful outcome.
  • Focusing on the heart space centers the consciousness. Focus on pink light in the center of the chest. Breathe through this space.
  • Release your concept of this “reality” and plan for the next. Focus on true happiness and the path of the heart.

General Work

  • Find a new destination point. You can imagine and visualize a new reality in three to six months. Imagine experiencing happiness, health, and balance. (Manifestation asks for the continual expansion of our consciousness, which requires focus on a particular point. Do it with joy!) On a wider level, you can see the virus decrease, abundance for all, and a clean, healthy planet.
  • Find your calling. A calling comes from the inner self. If you don’t have a calling, meditate and listen. Eventually you’ll receive instructions to take a walk, phone a friend, or perform a task such as exercise, study, or positive support in some form. Use one or two hours wisely each day. Exercise, see the beauty of spring, and meditate. The soul provides energy when you listen to the inner self.
  • Express appreciation often. Marvel at all that goes well, and don’t forget the presence of leaves, the colors at sunset, moon rise, and the beauty of the self. Generosity is part of gratitude. (We know how it works.)
  • Make the most of the beautiful moments. The energy is lovely in the morning, and the stars are bright in the evening. It’s also helpful to take a walk and breathe in the (newly) clean air. At this point, nature is particularly pretty and very happy. Don’t miss it!
  • Higher vibrations, which include awakening, abundance, enlightenment, happiness, health, and joy, are the best method of recycling the energy. Happiness and health are the opposite of fear and illness. Whenever possible, talk to a good friend, find your creativity, and notice the goodness of life.

Helping Others and the Planet

  • Look at a map. Ask where light is needed. Send it to the geographical location. Watch the area fill with the light and imagine universal light helping everyone in this space.
  • Imagine a world without the virus. Imagine a new way of living in harmony with one another and the earth. (The earth prefers a slower paced life with environmentally friendly world.)
  • Please don’t watch the news. It’s a very low vibration. Read the headlines and one or two articles. Leave the remainder for people who desire unhappiness.
  • It’s a transitional time. The entire planet is changing in a short period of time, which isn’t easy. Earth is resetting and moving into a new reality. You and I have to change, and the changes will probably appear as small intuitions, which lead to greater light and understanding. It’s not an easy phase, but it’s doable.
  • Rest, sleep, and reflect when possible. It requires large amounts of energy to change the course of personal and collective life. Also, brilliant ideas and practical solutions are more likely when you’re rested and relaxed.

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.

  • 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.

7 Reasons to Manifest More

 

 

 

Manifestation is a way of focusing the mind and emotions on a visual while connecting with the universe to realize a desired result. It must come from the heart to bring true satisfaction and relief from a lower condition. It must vibrate above fears and old projections about life–and it must take you into new realizations of perceiving life. Otherwise, you’re merely recreating old experiences and patterns, which eventually bring dissatisfaction. (True manifestation is the creation of new experiences and ideas that bring insight into the soul.)

  1. Positive manifestations begin with the heart and its desire. The heart chakra receives and distributes unconditional, universal love. In this space, you begin to find the feeling of the desirable life, which expands through visuals and aligned thoughts. The desire becomes the north star, the compass point of consciousness that leads to greater realization.
  2. Every visualization develops through intuition and meditation. It’s how you hear the universe and the language of the heart. By following intuition, you receive a positive feeling that is different from habitual emotions–and eventually leads to new, better results.
  3. The practice of manifestation leads away from comfortable routines that limit life; it leads to new opportunities, expressions of life, and a creative outlook. By holding the visualization, you tell the universe that you want a different, higher frequency, and the universe whispers directions through the heart. By learning to hear the universe through the heart, you open to colors, sounds, feelings, and a new way of thinking.
  4. With every manifestation, there is a part of self that resists the new “way”. By learning about this part of the self–and discovering its beliefs, fears, and lower vibrations–you learn how to create a new way of believing in yourself and the universe, a new way of speaking to yourself, and a method of finding and acting on your inner power. (It’s so much more fun than staying the same!)
  5. Many desires take practice and work to manifest. You may manifest part of your dream but experience parts of it as uncomfortable and/or out of alignment. This is actually wonderful because you are learning to discern between the desires of the inner self and who you think that you are. When you take action and work on a dream, you find what parts of you are in alignment with your dream and which parts of you need work and/or refinement. It’s a journey into self-discovery.
  6. The practice, work, and reprogramming lead to the discovery of the inner self, the part of you who always loves you and knows the way to higher frequencies and better solutions. In the beginning, the actual manifestation in physical form is the reward. Eventually, the discovery of the true self becomes a beautiful and meaningful journey. You learn who you truly are.
  7. All of the gifts of the universe (in material and spiritual form) lead to the recognition of the goodness of the universe. When you learn to manifest a particular gift, you can replicate it for others, teach and share the process, or simply share the light. It’s impossible to manifest positively without a higher vibration. Your work and efforts shine through, bringing a higher vibration to those around you.

 

A Few Tips

  1. See the opposite of a difficult situation. Visualize and feel harmony, possible solutions, and divert your attention from the problem.
  2. You can recall memories of happier times, physical vitality, and mental focus to change your feelings and outlook on life.
  3. Focus on the beauty of nature, the flow of life, and love of others to move into gratitude, which attracts an array of positive vibrations.
  4. When possible, see positive outcomes for others. Send pink light (love) to yourself and others. It raises your vibration.
  5. Remember that the universe loves and supports you. Make time to tap into this larger and more wonderful world.
