Beautiful New Moon

Photo by Griffin Lambert

 

The New Moon appears on Saturday, March 13 at 5:23 a.m. Fortunately, this moon cycle brings additional positive energy. Astrologer Pam Younghans identifies a very special aspect called a cazimi, an Arab word, which means “Heart of the Sun” and brings the greatest accidental strength imaginable. It is said to increase intuition and beneficial outcomes, particularly around the exact time of the New Moon.

The New Moon bestows a beautiful, feminine chart with four planets, including Sun (life), Moon (emotions), Venus (love, beauty), and Neptune (illusion/mysticism) in Pisces, a water sign. All water signs evoke emotion, and it’s particularly true with this chart. But Venus (love) is exalted, and Neptune can bring confusion or a crystalline, clear connection with our higher spiritual nature. (It’s a very positive forecast, which supports inner growth, provides encouraging energy, and brings the sensation of optimism.)

Following a month of many planets in Aquarius, our task is to find balance between stillness (female) and activity (masculine) despite our personal inclination. The Aquarian Age asks for alignment on the edge of love and mysticism—as well as the necessity of identifying a new type of personal and universal love that means giving enough but not too much. It also underlines the necessity for lightworkers to balance giving and receiving as we create a life aligned with the spiritual path.

Pisces is often about moving into a state of exalted, generous love, but it’s also about learning to find boundaries that benefit both giver and receiver while restraining from resentment. Otherwise, there is a negative feeling that our love or generosity is not reciprocated. (We have to learn to restrain the desire to give to people who are not receptive, which consequently results in a loss of energy.)

Sun (life) and Moon (emotion) are conjunct (placed closely together) Venus (love), heightening the Piscean energy. Sun, Moon, and Venus conjunct (close) Neptune (mysticism/illusion), which can expand our ability to receive mystical insights.

Mercury (communications) is placed in Aquarius, an air sign. It squares (tension) Mars (male, assertion) in Gemini, causing rushed thought, tension, and the tendency to make mistakes. (It’s important to listen, slow down, and think more than once before taking action.) Mercury conjuncts (close to) Jupiter (expansion, good fortune) gives happiness, optimism, and a broad view of life. It can expand the mind and bestows positive thinking.

Mars (action) in Gemini trines (harmonious) Jupiter in Aquarius, which creates stamina, success, and courage—particularly if we align with good intentions. Mars trines (harmonious) Pluto (underworld, subconscious) awakens the desire to succeed. It heightens intensity, confidence, and strengthens our ability to perceive the occult.

Saturn (limitation, karma) squares Uranus (sudden change, quantum field). This aspect feels as erratic as Uranus itself, which often seems like a Ferris wheel, lifting us from high in the air to low on the earth. Uranus is quirky; it alters electronics and moves very quickly. (The best remedy is staying centered, mediating frequently, and trusting that we have the resources for the strange ride. Undoubtedly, the Saturn/Uranus aspect is about clearing whatever blocks our passage into the gifts of the Aquarian Age, but it’s not always easy!)

Overall, it’s a lovely chart, which provides soft, flowing sensations, which are a welcome change. Aspects with Jupiter (expansion/good luck) bring a feeling of optimism that is needed at this time. It also asks for a new look at how we love, what we receive, and the best way of giving energy as well as to “whom”.

Many planets in Pisces, particularly Venus and Neptune, can open our consciousness to mystical love and understanding of spiritual mysteries. Our mind continues to create a feeling of tense thought and nervousness with Mercury in Gemini, but there are ample energies to move into a higher state.

Emotions

For those who are open, the New Age brings an increase of intuitive ability as a greater connection with the “all.” We feel the people around us with greater acuity along with sensing their thoughts and place of being. With awareness, this can become a wonderful learning experience. If we don’t know what we’re feeling, it can bring confusing and vacillating emotions.
Everyone “picks up” on the people around them. We also receive information about locations, timing, and objects. We often wander through life without awareness of the information supplied by our inner being. In a time of awakening, everyone, who desires it, can gain greater consciousness and clarity. (As we move into love, we become more connected.)
It’s also necessary to align with our inner self to perceive the catalyst behind our emotions. Are we suddenly angry or distraught–or are we perceiving the mood of others around us? It’s an important discernment in awakening. Otherwise, we move through life on the energies of others without truly perceiving our feelings, reactions–or how we are altered by the presence of others.

Emotion, which represents water, has many faces. It can be still and peaceful, wild and raging, or murky and dark. It connects streams, rivers, and oceans. It comes in waves. On a universal level, the element of water is magnetic; it is cool, calm, and wet. It is the force of emotion, intuition, persistence and devotion. Water can cleanse and calm. (Think of taking a shower or bath at the end of a long day.)

When we encounter challenging emotions, we can move into love or peace. In this way, the current of spiritual energy acts as a current that carries us through the river. We can also recognize the source of undesirable emotion, which opens the door for new possibilities. We can eliminate the source, see it in a different light, or create from a new perspective. It’s also helpful to realize that we always receive emotion from others, and our lives are colored by this. By understanding how and when it happens, we open the door for many new choices.

Here are a few tips.

  • The goal is to visualize the highest and best reality for everyone while seeing their flaws and tendencies accurately. It’s helpful to recall the positive qualities of a person, to identify their best characteristics by remembering what we like about them, which raises the overall vibration. (There is one exception. If a person consistently lowers our vibration, then we need distance.)
  • It’s important to know that we connect with lower mass consciousness when experiencing lower emotions. Lower mass consciousness amplifies our negative feelings. It’s helpful to ask for the presence of the inner self and to ask the universe for light.
  • When someone says hurtful or upsetting words, it’s important to notice our reaction. If we’re honest, then we know that we always have these feelings. It’s not just the other person. It’s our perpetual response. Sending light to our feelings and asking to experience life differently is often helpful.
  • When faced with drama, do the opposite. If we engage, then try withdrawing from the situation. If we usually withdraw, then step forward and continue the discussion softly. Remain kind.
  • Omit the blame. Forgive others for how they make us feel. On some level, we’ve chosen to be part of the situation, and we can either look at it as learning experience or as a victim.
  • In truth other people can make us feel good or bad, particularly if we’re not paying attention to our inner voice. For example, if someone is angry, depressed or physically ill, we usually feel tired after speaking or visiting with them. Forgive it all by learning when and how we can best interact with others. It’s our responsibility, not theirs.
  • Share the truth in fragments. When the other person is calm, make an observation from a detached point of view. Share a small piece of insight about the pattern. Do it from a place of love. No one can take it all in at one time.
  • Understand that everyone becomes temperamental when overwhelmed or tired. Rest often and wait before speaking. Go for a walk or practice yoga or meditation. We can remind ourselves that emotions and feelings don’t last very long.
  • Loving all aspects of life and seeing the light of other people (particularly in karmic relationships such as husband, wife, parents or child) is part of the path of the soul. Beneath the surface of everyone and everything, there is light. The light brings freedom and peace.

Full Snow Moon, A Soft Change

Image by Amanda Clark

 

Nothing is better than moving into spiritual energy, discarding patterns, and mitigating karma. It makes it possible to ascend into the qualities of our higher self-and leave the past behind. The planets offer this opportunity—along with sequences of change–throughout the late winter and early spring.

With planets placed in interesting designs, we can contemplate beauty, the dreams of the higher self, and take action to create a better life. With three planets in Pisces, much of the emphasis is on emotion because Pisces is a water sign, symbolized by two fishes (emotions) swimming in opposite direction. If we can reconcile the opposites within the self (the light and darkness), it’s possible to move into a higher dimension or representation of life.

The Full Snow Moon appears on February 27 at 3:19 am. It adds the element of water, bringing a softer, feminine forecast with the heightened energies of the full moon. The Sun/Moon position brings fertility with combined energies of water and earth. (It’s a wonderful time to manifest!) All of the planets are direct, which aids with achieving desires and forward motion. With fewer planets in Aquarius, which rules the mind, this forecast creates a gentle flow of emotion and opens the heart to love.

Sun, Venus, and Neptune are placed in the sign of Pisces, which is represented by fishes swimming in opposite directions. It can symbolize the dance between love and hidden problems (or resentments) on an emotional level. Pisces is the sign of the past age, carrying old emotion and karma; it is also dreamy and creative.

Sun conjunct Venus elicits lovely feelings like diplomacy, optimism, desire for peace and beauty, and self-love. Moon is in Virgo, an earth sign, which prefers practicality and order although it also represents the High Priestess. The Moon opposes (opposite) Venus (love, relationships), meaning our emotions may propel us into—and away from love. (Oppositions are somewhat like polar opposites– moving between two strong feelings or thoughts.) Moon trines (harmonious) Uranus (sudden change, quantum field) translates change and makes it desirable. It opens the psyche to new ideas and unusual ways of living. It heightens self-esteem, creativity, and awareness of the inner self.

Mercury (thought, communication) is direct in Aquarius, and it continues to influence the mind in odd and unusual ways. Mercury conjuncts (close to) Jupiter (expansion, good fortune). The aspect expands the ability to perceive and create big dreams. It increases optimism, confidence, and perseverance. Mercury conjuncts (close to) Saturn (limitation, karma), and it can give patience and concentration, which aid with long term work. Conversely, it can make the mind dwell on negative issues. (Awareness of thought is needed to overcome the conflict between Jupiter and Saturn.) Mercury squares Uranus (sudden change, quantum field) creates agitation of thought—a plethora of intelligent thoughts that travel in many directions at once. It’s best to wait before expressing these thoughts as discernment is needed.

Venus (love, beauty, material pleasures) in Pisces is exalted, meaning it enhances the feeling of esoteric love in relationships and life, including healthy boundaries. Venus and Neptune (mysticism, illusion) in Pisces can feel make life feel (briefly) exquisite before returning to the impact of dualistic energies.

Mars (assertion, male) in Taurus is strong and stable; it moves at a slow pace. In this sign, Mars (action) tends to focus on long term goals. It’s a fixed sign, which means difficulty with changing directions or a point of view. Mars trines Pluto (underworld, transformation), which is a powerful placement. The aspect increases courage, boldness, and physical energy. It helps with finding new direction in life, challenging situations, and healing the physical body.

Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius are conjunct—and square Uranus (sudden change, quantum field). It’s a major contributor to the push me/pull me sensation of 2021. Jupiter (expansion) is warm, and it enlarges energy, pushes us into our dreams, and brings good fortune. Saturn (limitation) is cold, and it contracts and limits energy. It also pushes karma to the surface and teaches about structure and discipline. Both planets are in Aquarius, propelling us into the New Age. Jupiter asks that we pursue an enlightened future, and Saturn demonstrates the limitations of the subconscious, which are enacted through thought, emotion, and action. It’s necessary to clear karma to achieve dreams. (It’s obvious enough on the spiritual path, but the conjunction between Jupiter and Saturn emphasizes the necessity of creating change in this way.)

Jupiter square Uranus can cause anxiety and a strong desire to break away from routine. It also gives new, original ideas, and it heightens the intellect. The trick lies in choosing ideas that align with the inner self and promote long term growth. Saturn square Uranus creates inner tension and restlessness. It can create indecision and dislike of routine. It can also nurture original ways of approaching life. With Uranus in Taurus, it may involve how we align technology with a balanced earth in the future.

Notes

  1. It’s a more gentle forecast with Sun in Pisces and Moon in Virgo. Pisces rules the seas, the flow of waves in different directions. The chart is similar as it moves in two directions. It urges love and attention to beauty; it also focuses on Aquarius, the sign of the mind and outer space. With these positions, we crave the flow of love, but the mind wants to ponder the secrets of the universe. Likely, we will move between the two extremes.
  2. Venus creates a feeling of soft love, peacefulness, and optimism. Placed in Pisces, Venus asks for contemplation of the higher forms of love.
  3. Mercury is direct in Aquarius, which is wonderful, but it continues to square Uranus, which can cause agitation and nervousness. It can also align us with unusual, beneficial thoughts.
  4. All of the planets are direct, making it easier to act on plans and achieve results. Now is the time to act!
  5. Mars (male, action) trines Pluto (underworld, subconscious), increasing courage, boldness, and the ability to move forward. The aspect also heightens our ability to transform and recreate our lives.
  6. Jupiter (expansion, growth) and Saturn (limitation) in Aquarius are involved in a contradictory dance. Jupiter (expansion) asks for the growth of dreams and progress on the path of life. With few steps, Saturn (limitation, karma) comes in and asks for rewriting old patterns that are in the way. It’s not an easy dance, but it moves us forward on the mystical journey of the soul’s path.

Message from the Wolves

 

From far away, we gather at the full moon to share thoughts, messages, and the stories from a former time when you walked in power and light. When the moon is full, messages travel more easily. The light of the moon carries messages and thoughts; all forms of light carry thought and emotion.

Light is the best channel of communication for spiritual messages. The elements of air, water, fire, and earth amplify our message and carry it into the world. There are many secrets, which wait to be found. They amplify power and open the heart, so that the soul can be perceived.

We ask you to connect to the earth more often and feel the changes that are taking place. As the earth changes, your body changes. Your spiritual capacities and intuition are recalibrated. You move into power as opposed to exhaustion. You will find the force within you that solves problems. (Keep in mind that solutions usually come in pieces like a puzzle. Stay determined in your search.)

For those who are awakened, there is a larger shift, which awakens intuition. You may experience flashes of knowing, move into new insights, or feel more sensitive. These changes mean you are growing in awareness, and you probably feel the turning/changing of the earth.

Nature is more aware of you than she has been in some time. When you walk or sit outside, the earth hears you, and she responds. When you focus on what you want, the earth amplifies your desire. It is wise to connect with the earth often and feel the new vibrations of the earth. (You can also do this when you are tired—for you receive the new spiritual vibrations in a physical sense.)

The earth wants to aid you in creating a new and happier life. Focus on your intent and ask nature to help you. Pay attention to the movement of trees, the voices of birds, and the sunlight or moonlight. Focus on a single tree or plant while meditating.

What is the shift that is occurring now?

It is a recalibration of your energies and earth energies. New energy is settling on the earth, and it is very different. It is easiest to receive it when resting and when outdoors.

As it is written in the stars, you are standing between the future and past. You are awakening to the powers, which were turned “off” long ago. They may seem to stop and start—or apparent one day and not available the next day. They may seem to come and go, but the energy is building. Soon, you will become much more talented at creating what you want and living in your heart.

What is your definition of living in the heart?

It is choosing to connect with the soul and living in its guidance. Your soul and heart are filled with light. When you connect to the inner self or the heart, you become aware of your personal truth. There is no wavering with the unsettled motion of the mind and human emotions. You are aligned.

When you are aligned for a period of time, you become more powerful. The universe hears and supports you. You become more open to intuition, and you begin know when you are right for you can perceive the difference between truth and human thought.

It is a feeling that turns through the body and spirit simultaneously. As always, it is helpful to imagine living in a desirable state of being—such as having the ability to consistently live in the heart.

What should we know about the changes?

You create change by becoming who you truly are, by finding your true identity, and acting on impulses that are aligned with your heart. Yes, there is a big change coming, but it is not how people tend to think about it.

It comes from many individuals doing daily work, meditating, connecting with the earth, and acting from the heart. It comes from developing and using your powers or gifts. It comes from learning to consistently replace a lower, negative image with a positive one.

It is about understanding that you continually create holograms and identify with beliefs or ideas. However, you have the freedom to focus on positive, uplifting images that resonate with the heart. (It’s not simply about becoming positive. It is about creating intensely through new images, feelings, and thoughts.)

When many people focus in this way, there is a tremendous light and higher vibration. Everything in physicality responds to higher vibrations and acts in a different way. In this way, you transcend the limitations of the “old” reality. What is coming in the future is much better, but it also possible to bring it more quickly, and live in this beautiful place of being. (Focus your desire and heart on this way of being.)

Full Moon Forecast: Intensity and Change

 

 

The Full Moon appears on Thursday, January 28 with erratic, intense energy. An emphasis on Uranian (and Aquarian) energy indicates “certain” change, which could include awakening, difficulties, or a change in the direction of life. On a personal level, it can reflect the placement of higher consciousness and/or subconscious desires and thoughts. (The energies remain throughout February, but they are at their height during the full moon.)

The full moon chart tends to exacerbate tension, anger, stubbornness, and a fixed mind. Conversely, there are beautiful qualities that can open consciousness to the soul and reveal the power of love in creating personal/global transformation. It’s important to comprehend both sides of the equation.

There are many aspects in the chart with Uranus (sudden change, quantum field) in Taurus, an earth sign, which symbolizes the beauty of the spring and a time of growth—as well as conflicting energies from planets in Aquarius throughout February.  What does it mean?

Aquarius is symbolized as a star man or woman pouring water from a pitcher on the earth. In metaphysics, water is love, the stars represent the universe, and it’s partially about how an individual’s state of universal affects and helps the planet. Love rules the element of fire; it elevates passion and connects with the heart. The element of earth is missing from the glyph. (Alchemy teaches us to pay attention to missing elements in a symbolic message.)

When many planets in Aquarius square Uranus, which is placed in earth, they contact the element and deliver a message. Humanitarian ideals and higher thoughts are fabulous, but they must have a connection with the earth. After expressing an idea, it needs to take form in matter (earth) in a harmonious way. (The earth is our mother, who nourishes us, transmutes negative energy, and creates beauty in physical form.) It may also act as indication of the need to reconnect with earth on a collective level.

Sun (life), Mercury (communication), Jupiter (expansion), and Saturn (karma, limitation) are placed in Aquarius. The sign of Aquarius is associated with the group mind and understanding how an individual’s energy and thoughts relate to the whole of humanity. It’s associated with spontaneity, unpredictability, and visionary qualities. Ruled by air, it encompasses higher thought and action.

Sun (life) square Uranus (sudden change) often feels like a period of uncertainty It can heighten the ego. It tends to bring period of unpredictable changes. It can also open the consciousness to the richness of the inner self and present opportunities for growth. There may be an urge to do things differently or find one’s own way of moving through life.

Sun (life) conjunct Jupiter (expansion) is a very lovely aspect. It brings optimism, energy, and positive energy into our lives. It’s often a time of receiving approval from others in our lives—and the universe. It expands Self-confidence, assertion, good luck, and heightens aspirations. The aspect also opens our mind to humanitarian issues and growth. However, it’s important to remember that expansion and optimism can also lead to indulgence in spending, eating, and pushing too hard/too fast with decision making and goals. Sun (life) conjunct Saturn (limitation) is somewhat the opposite. It is limiting and can inhibit positive emotion and self-esteem. It can also increase introversion

Moon (emotions) square Mars (assertion, male) heightens emotions and passion as well as stubbornness and the need to compete. It’s a good aspect—if we remember to use good judgement and think about other people and/or outcomes. (Feeling stubborn is not all bad. Sometimes, it’s needed to stay on the spiritual path.) Moon (emotion) square Uranus (sudden change, quantum field) brings increased, erratic emotion along with a desire for new experiences. Heightened and unstable emotion can obviously lead to conflict. It’s important to remember new experiences can be simple ones in the time of COVID—a drive to a new park, a long drive to a beautiful place, or a wonderful take-out meal.

Moon (emotion) opposes Jupiter (expansion). Jupiter can expand emotional connections and help with expression. The aspect can also cause extravagance. Moon in opposition to Saturn (limitation, karma) can cause inhibition and the desire to withdraw from life.

Mercury (communications, mind) will move into retrograde on January 30. It will likely feel intense because of its placement in an air sign. Mercury rules air, many planets are in an air sign, and Mercury will move in the opposite direction of those planets. It is a time to refrain from action, and it may give time for rest and review.

Venus (love, partnerships) is placed in Capricorn, an earth sign. Venus conjuncts (close to) Saturn inhibits expression of love and can give the need to withdraw from friends and family. Venus conjunct Pluto (underworld, transformation) can expand obsessive or jealous feelings.  However, it can teach about the potential of moving so deeply into love (and universal love) that we find a pathway for transformation on a personal and soul level.

Mars (action, male) in Aquarius continues with its wild ways.  It stirs up anger, tension, and frustration. Mars squares Jupiter (expansion), brings increased energy and the desire to succeed. It can also cause impulsiveness, which causes incorrect action. Mars square Saturn (limitation, karma) can cause frustration and anger. (It’s helpful to focus on the inner self, discipline, and patience.) Mars conjunct (close to) Uranus (sudden change, quantum field) often brings sudden, unexpected change; it can also ignite anger and frustration into negative action.

Jupiter (expansion) and Saturn (limitation) conjunct (close to) Uranus, which can create additional change, particularly when many other planets are in aspect with it. Expect the unexpected and stay centered and aligned is the best advice for this moment in time.

Saturn (limitation, karma) is moving away from its conjunction with Pluto (underworld, transformation), which should help in decreasing the cases of the world pandemic—or allow solutions to become more available as time passes.

Here are a few tips.

  • Many aspects in the chart are contradictory such as Sun conjunct Jupiter, which creates expansion and optimism, and Sun conjunct Saturn, which expands a need to withdraw and amplifies inhibited feelings. On the path of the soul, we travel through many similar contradictions in our personal nature. It’s simply another way of learning to address two opposites at various times.
  • Many aspects with Uranus can lead to greater consciousness or the confusion of change, based on fixed ideas and insistence on being “right”. It’s important to stay flexible and use the aspects as an opportunity to explore close mindedness. There’s also a wonderful opportunity to move into greater discovery of the universe and its principles.
  • Venus (love) conjunct Pluto (underworld, transformation) offers an opportunity to move into cosmic love on a deeper level.
  • Mercury (thought, mind) moves into retrograde on January 30, and it will likely affect electronic devices—and add to the current sense of chaos.
  • Uranus in Taurus indicate a need to focus on the earth and find a greater connection with her energy. Also, the earth provides stability and grounding for the body when we cannot find it in the collective energies. Stay calm and centered.
  • Mars (action, male) is somewhat like a crazy warrior without a cause. It’s angry, frustrated, and wants to strike out. However, we’ve evolving—and (maybe) we know better.
  • With many planets in Aquarius, it’s a good time to open the mind to humanitarian values and ponder a better future. Aquarius provides new, innovative ideas with a touch of genius.

New Moon, New Year

 

 

The first New Moon of the New Year appears today. The New Moon chart reflects our current world in a fairly accurate manner. It depicts the desire for power, the flare of anger and mis-reads of energy, and it shows where our energies are on and off. But the stars and planets don’t compel an outcome. The planets “color” our reception of energy, and we have free will and choices as to our response and/or reaction.

As in every chart, there are mitigating factors, which offer opportunities and shifts in consciousness. The first two months of the year carry strong Uranian influences. Uranus is currently in Taurus, which is the earth and structures in physical form. The planet has 2 different faces. One face brings sudden, strange changes such as the events that occurred in the United States last week; the other face can be sublime as it is the quantum field. Uranus contains the quantum field, spiritual communication such as transmitting thoughts and energy, and aspects of light like spontaneous healing, miracles and the presence of angels.

Interestingly, our encounters with Uranus depend on the placement of consciousness. When collective consciousness swings low, we see and feel odd, negative events. When collective consciousness is high and focused on light, we experience a dispensation of spiritual energy. Ultimately, the outcome is a result of focused energy. (We can begin by becoming grateful of the good in life and pulling into the inner self where answers to the outside world tend to appear.) Creating positive outcomes can act an opportunity to come together and work with higher energies because Uranus can offer new, unique methods of energetic change.

Another positive force in this chart is Venus, planet of love. Placed in Capricorn, which is an earth sign, Venus trines Uranus, which opens our consciousness to new forms of love, finding love (including unconditional love) through new sensations and experiences, and sending/using love in original, unique methods and forms. Love mitigates and changes everything around it; it lifts energy into a higher place and opens the door to possibility.

By focusing on Venus, we can move into love and universal love. We can ask to learn how to apply love in new ways. We can tap into love to release resentments and frustrations. And we can ask universal love to show us how to love ourselves.

Here are a few of the strong aspects in the chart.

  1. Sun (life), Moon (emotions), and Mercury (communications) conjunct (close to) Pluto (underworld, transformation). Sun and Pluto in close position can indicate awareness of light and darkness. (The Sun is life, and Pluto can be the underworld or subconscious.) With observation, we can transcend the limitations of the aspect and move into wholeness. Moon conjunct Pluto can take resentment and unstable emotion to the surface. It can also bring hidden emotions to the surface for observation and increase intuition. Mercury conjunct Pluto expands and intensifies thought. It can bring troubled emotions and thoughts to the surface for examination and clearing.
  2. Sun (life), Moon (emotions), Mercury (thought), and Jupiter (expansion) conjunct Saturn, which is limitation and repression. We may experience a desire to go inward or feel slightly depressed. Saturn is also about discipline, and it may be important to examine feelings and thoughts to discover what needs to change through meditation and creative thought.
  3. Mercury (thought) squares Mars (action), which can cause confusion about finding right action, words, and/or communication.
  4. Mars (action) conjuncts (close to) Uranus (sudden change, quantum field). Uranus’ tendency is to heighten creativity and the desire to live in a more expansive way. This aspect pushes us to make changes, but it’s important to think twice and anchor into stability. (It is quite energizing but can be overly spontaneous.) Mars squares (tension, frustration) Jupiter (expansion), Saturn (limitation), and Pluto (underworld, transformation). With Mars presenting 4 squares, it’s important NOT to act on frustration, resentment, or small upsets. (Wait a week or two, and see how you feel.)
  5. Saturn (limitation) and Jupiter (expansion) are in Aquarius, and they square (tension) Uranus. This is one factor in the current of strange events; however, it gives the opportunity to learn how to tap into the quantum field. Jupiter and Saturn remain conjunct Pluto, which is the COVID influence. Fortunately, they are moving away from Pluto, and we’ll likely see some relief in February.
  6. The planets will change their positions later in the year. We will move beyond the anger and frustration, which have been strong since summer. We’ll move in and out of the COVID influences, which are currently weakening. We have the power to shift ourselves and the world around us—if we devote moments and minutes to raising our frequency. In other words, there is great potential if we set our hearts and minds on finding it.

Shift in Consciousness

As many people move more deeply into awakening, a shift in energy is occurring. (Despite the appearance of the world, there is more light.) As our personal energy becomes focused on the light and spiritual growth, specific changes take place in our experience of life. As awakening continues, we perceive life differently because light causes everything to move at a higher frequency.

 

Here are a few insights:

  1. As we become more conscious, our awareness shifts. We become aware that “reality” shifts, spins, and stirs with the state of our consciousness. It is reflected in the flow of events. When we’re connected to the inner self, life flows easily without as many disturbances. When we are disconnected, we may encounter chaotic events or upsets from others. When we are truly to the inner self, the wonderful presence of the “All” creates a different and lovely design.
  2. Other people and their energies impact our lives more deeply. As spiritual awareness grows, we perceive (and receive) more energy from others. As we become more conscious of our own energies, we perceive more information from others. We can use light to heal, block, or change the energy. (It’s also possible to learn about vulnerability, karma, and what we truly want from our experience.)
  3. We affect “life” and our lives more than we want to admit. Our lower thoughts and feelings may attract an irritable person, and higher thoughts may pull in a flow of love. (For example, the sun shines when we think a higher thought, or we receive a pleasant email from a loved one. In short, manifestation is easier when at a higher vibration.)
  4. Consciousness connects us more deeply to all sources of information and energy. We feel life more intensely. We may feel more drawn or repelled to particular sources of information. Our higher consciousness begins to direct us more strongly.  (Higher consciousness opens the heart, brings in love, and makes feelings seem more intense.)
  5. Swings in duality – the movement of emotions and thoughts – may seem stronger. When we experience the inner self, consciousness moves into a place of being centered. It focuses on “ONE” point. Naturally, we’re more aware of the motion after a quiet experience, and oscillation feels more intense. (Oscillation can also feel intense when we work to overcome a block or pattern.)
  6. Increased consciousness brings awareness of our impact on our internal/external state. We begin to understand how our happiness and unhappiness respond to our internal dialog, old beliefs, and expectations. With this awareness, life shifts.
  7. Understanding of letting go and holding on becomes part of spiritual work. We learn to release our old beliefs and stubborn energies about our desired outcomes and/or turn over a problem to the universe for a larger solution. We also learn to become more determined with our intentions for a better life and to seek this with all of our will and might.
  8. “Giving” and “helping” are subtly changing. We can hold a vision or send light to anyone, but our spiritual help is balanced with the spiritual commitment and effort of the receiver. (In the Piscean Age, healers and light workers gave in a different way by pouring out energy whenever they felt led to share and help. In the Aquarian Age, we balance and gauge energy for the best effect.)
  9. During flashes of awakening, we perceive a beautiful future in a balanced world. There is a feeling of reassurance, comfort, and support. (We create the envisioned world through our individual perception of universal communication.)

Choosing Light

Currently, more developed souls are working with collective by learning methods of sending light to larger groups and developing their personal calling. Other light workers have identified their calling and are putting it into form on an individual level. But everyone, who is awakening, is working on the development of their personal life as well as the perception of energies in the outer world.

We cannot change everything, but we can send light and work together in the achievement of a higher frequency.

10 Reasons to Choose Light

  1. When we send light to a situation or worry, we no longer think about it. We must focus on light as well as the sensation of sending it. In general, light holds a higher frequency than a problem, so the sensation of the light lifts us into a higher place. (We also refrain from sending negativity to a negative situation, which expands it.) Over time, we learn the habit of switching the focus of the mind from a lower to a higher vibration.
  2. Light is love. It leads to unity, connection, and oneness. It’s said we’re moving through the end of Kali Yuga, the darkest time on the Earth, and it will be followed by a great Golden Age. The Golden Age will likely appear when we learn to join together and create through a place of love and light.
  3. Choosing light means the preference of a higher frequency. It drives away lower thoughts and emotions; it nurtures compassion. It aligns us with others who feel the same light, and it mitigates karma—the repetition of negative thoughts and feelings.
  4. Particles of matter respond to light. It brings healing, growth, and insight. (Light is the fabric that underlies particles of matter; it is the invisible force, which inhabits every form of life.)
  5. Light is one of the highest frequencies on the planet. Higher frequencies are uplifting, invigorating, and healing. Light holds the opposite frequency of fear, pain, anger, and doubt.
  6. Light is the only thing that leads out of the dark wilderness of difficulties. Life may not change immediately, but our attitude alters. Through light, we find strength to overcome obstacles.
  7. Sending light to the self clears karma, stills the mind, and opens the heart to love, which allows true universal communion.
  8. Repeated meditation on light leads to truth about the self. It may not be the truth that we want to see, but it is freeing—and it takes us to new fields of opportunity and exploration. (Light finds solutions where there are none.)
  9. Light awakens our gifts, leading to the expression of our talents. It gives courage to step into our calling and power of expression.
  10. For those who truly want change, there is no alternative. Each time we step into the light, we illuminate the world with a higher vibration. (It doesn’t mean that we don’t move back and forth as we master our thoughts and feelings. It involves learning how to return to light and love, the natural state of our inner being.)
