New Moon Forecast: Mystical Energy and Right Action

Image by Lucy Campbell

Every week or so, the motion of the planets alters our reception of physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual energy. (Think of the planets as filters or colored orbs.) They can bring harmony, conflict, or combinations of emotions, which bring struggle or ease. In general, my forecasts share the meanings of the combination of planetary energies. Honestly, no one knows exactly how we will feel the shifts because the planet is changing with the constant influx of new energies.

The New Moon appears on Saturday, March 17 at 9:11 a.m. During this time, we rest in the void and focus on the future while waiting for the light to return. It is good to center so we can find our way in the “dark.

Sun, Moon, Neptune, and Chiron are placed in Pisces, which offers nurturing, healing, mysticism, and unconditional love. With many planets in water, we can feel intense emotion, and it’s important to channel it into spiritual growth and devotion. Think of the fishes swimming in two directions.

With Mercury (communications), Venus (love), and Mars (action) in fire signs, we’ll receive a strong impulse to act on our thoughts and passions. But this forecast is about alignment and balance. It’s important to take (only) inspired action that comes from the inner self—and to balance it with periods of rest.

Sun (outer self) and Moon (inner self) in Pisces sit in a lovely trine with Jupiter (good fortune) in Scorpio. Trines are harmonious and creative; they also confer ease with manifestation. This aspect indicates a beneficial relationship between a focus on the mystical and a desire to see the truth beneath the surface—which is part of the spiritual quest. (This trine is formed by water and emphasizes the value of flowing, positive emotions.)

Mercury (communications), Venus (feminine, love, material possessions) and Uranus (spiritual change, awakening) are placed in Aries, a forceful fire sign, which focuses on moving forward—the opposite direction of Sun and Moon. Mercury (communications) is quick, brilliant, and active in Aries. This placement gives power with words, writing, and communication. It heightens the imagination and produces new ideas. Mercury in Aries is also passionate. It longs to move into new spaces of the mind and life. (Think of traveling to Mars. It’s a perfect Mercury in Aries idea.)

Venus (feminine, material possessions, love) is independent and bold in Aries. The “warrior” energies are not compatible with Venus’ desire to love, flow, and beautify. Venus in Aries can act in a self-centered way, preferring love for self to loving others. However, Aries is the first sign in the astrological wheel, indicating the possibility of beneficial, new beginnings in love, money, and self-awareness.

Mercury (communications, mind) and Venus (love, feminine) square Saturn, asking us to curb the desire to act with a sense of responsibility. It simply means to give pause to our strong thoughts and feelings about relationships and to think before acting.

Mars (assertiveness, male energy) is placed in Sagittarius, and it is adventurous in the sign of the archer. It’s expansive and confident, yearning for new frontiers. It amplifies our spiritual vision and gives power to delve into spiritual pursuits.

Sun (outer life) and Moon (inner life) square Mars (male energy, assertion) in Sagittarius. The square creates tension between the desire to absorb spiritual energy through a passive state (Pisces) and to seek wisdom through action and/or a quest. (We need both.)

Mars (masculine, action) trines Uranus in Aries, increasing the desire for action. It sharpens the instincts and gives the urge to focus on projects, work, and the body. Think of it as intensified drive. Again, the caution is to think before acting and to remember the value of contemplative thought and living.

Jupiter (good fortune, expansion) sits in Scorpio, a water sign that rules birth, death, sex, and inheritance. In this placement, Jupiter in Scorpio asks for review of obstacles in life and to move through our fears. The ultimate aim is expansion of all that is good in us. (Jupiter moved retrograde on March 12, allowing us to review goals and life progress to create greater abundance and expansion.)

Saturn is in Capricorn, the goat, and asks for review of the structures in our life and the creation of a new foundation in life. Everything looks and works differently in the New Age; it’s important to recreate ourselves as well. This also includes financial, physical, and social systems. Saturn also rules career and resources; it can be limiting or protective.

Mercury (communications, mind), Venus (love, feminine), and Uranus (awakening, sudden change) square Pluto (regeneration, underworld). These squares indicate the importance of observing the desire for motion and action with the structure of concrete change that supports the growth of the inner self. (Brilliant, new ideas are only helpful when they work for the good of self.)

The square between Uranus and Pluto continues for a few more months. It continually moves between the ecstatic sensation of awakening and the darkness of the underworld. When we decide to move through our underlying fears, life changes quite drastically—and in a very positive sense.

Full Moon Forecast

Image by Josephine Wall


The full moon appears at 7:51 pm on March 1. The full moon increases growth, fruition, and manifestation. It heightens our sensations and emotions as well as our ability to visual and create change. (It’s interesting to note that emotions and energy increase around the new moon and full moon as we become more sensitive to light.)

Many planets–Sun (outer life), Mercury (communications), Venus (love), Neptune (mysticism), and Chiron (wounded healer)—are placed in Pisces, a water sign. Pisces is the sign of fishes swimming in opposite directions. The sign of Pisces represents love, understanding, and selflessness. On the opposite duality, Pisces can bring an urge to do nothing but float and escape reality—or experience the sensation of becoming a martyr and/or victim.

Pisces can also represent an “old” soul (as most of us are) and karma. Obviously, five planets in Pisces can significantly increase the experience of emotion. In this case, emotion relates to karmic and habitual patterns, the ability to pause and glimpse a pattern—or observe and direct energy in a new way. (It’s always a challenge, and other aspects such as squares with Mars intensify it.)

Fortunately, Moon is placed in Virgo, an earth sign that is grounded and discriminating. It heightens our ability to think, differentiate, and heal. Moon trines (harmonious) Saturn (karma) and Uranus (change, new age), which aids in grounding, creating balanced ideas, and understanding our karma on a physical level. (For example, understanding the stimuli/events that contribute to sleeplessness, unhappiness, poor diet, etc.)

Mercury (communications) is placed in Pisces, which can lead to connection with our dreams and the cosmos—or heightened emotion from negative thoughts. Like fishes swimming in opposite directions, it can lead us to a higher or lower dimension. It conjuncts (close to) Venus (feminine, relationships), and it can heighten our intelligence about love—and loving ourselves. The trine (harmonious) with Jupiter (good fortune expansion) indicates our dreaminess and focus on love can lead to good fortune.

Venus (love, material possessions) is exalted in Pisces, and it can give a feeling of connection and oneness. It can also heighten emotions. Venus trines (harmonious) Jupiter, indicating this state of oneness and universal love can bring good fortune and expand the better aspects of life, Venus conjuncts (close to) Neptune (mysticism, illusion), heightening the odd feeling of moving in and out of reality—a strange beautiful, dreamy feeling.

Mars (action, masculine) is well placed in the fire sign of Sagittarius, but it simply doesn’t work with the rest of the chart. Sun (outer life), Mercury (communications), Venus (love, relationships) square (create tension) with Mars. Mars, placed in a fire sign, wants bold action, and it is frustrated by the flowing, lovely sensation of Pisces.

Additionally, Mars squares Neptune (mysticism, illusion) and Chiron (the wounded healer.) It does trine (harmonious) Uranus, but it’s difficult to take action on the innovative ideas, delivered by Uranus. The challenge lies in knowing frustrations come and go. It’s not necessary to act and/or express emotion in the moment.

Jupiter in Scorpio (good fortune) trines (harmonious) Neptune (illusion, mysticism) and Chiron (the wounded healer), adding positive energies to the chart. (There are a total of 4 trines with Jupiter, which expands opportunity and can lead to greater success.)

Six planets aspect Neptune (mysticism, illusion), which rules Pisces.  Sun, Mercury, and Venus are conjunct (close to), heightening the Piscean influence. Moon in Virgo opposes Neptune, indicating the need to discriminate emotionally between spiritual states and illusion. Mercury squares Neptune, confusing the issue and clouding our ability to differentiate truth and illusion, and Jupiter’s trine with Neptune, increases positive energy and a state of hopefulness.

Uranus (sudden change, awakening) will change signs in May, and this shift can feel like Mercury retrograde when it slows electronics and/or creates small inconveniences. It can also make emotions and thoughts oscillate from low to high—and vice versa. (Fortunately, Uranus responds quickly to positive visualization.) Uranus remains square Pluto as it has periodically since 2012.


  • Many planets in Pisces can align the mind and emotions with higher love and mysticism—or exacerbate lower emotions and anxious thoughts. We become more intuitive with many planets in Pisces.
  • The impetus of the chart points to overcoming karmic patterns of thought and emotion. The goal is finding “love” and greater universal connection.
  • Mercury (communication) and Venus (love) harmoniously trine Jupiter (good fortune), meaning thoughts and feelings, which focus on love can transmute negativity more easily and bring alignment with success and good fortune.
  • Mars (action) squares many of the Piscean planets, which can cause anger and other low level emotions. Mars (the desire to act) is frustrated by the squares. (We can’t change anything until we know what bothers us. Make a list of frustrations and continue to work on earlier plans. We can talk and make new plans later when Mars is stronger.)
  • An exciting aspect of the chart lies in the power of water (feminine, emotion) to help change the flow of life by finding our universal connection.

Black Moon/Solar Eclipse


The New “Black” Moon, accompanied by a solar eclipse, appears on February 15 at 4:05 pm. The New Moon represents the void, a time of reflection that includes planning the future and releasing unwanted aspects of the past. It’s a time of stillness before life takes on a new form in the material world.

Eclipses reset our energy with their on/off motion, and it’s helpful to focus the mind on a desirable outcome. At this time, we have the opportunity to reset our energy (through the eclipse) as part of the attainment of higher collective consciousness.

The chart for the New Moon is surprisingly clear. With Sun (outer life), Moon (inner life, emotions), and Mercury (communications, mind) in Aquarius, it’s about experiencing oneness, humanitarian efforts, and moving more deeply into universal love. As with all charts, there are challenges, but they are surmountable.

Sun and Moon in Aquarius are conjunct (close to) Venus (love, feminine). Venus (love, feminine, material possessions) is placed in Pisces, where it is exalted, opening our being to the softer waves of love. Venus conjuncts (close) Neptune (Illusion, mysticism), eliciting dreams of personal and universal love. Neptune rules water (emotion), and this aspect hints at the power of overcoming obstacles (in this chart) by moving into the sea of collective love.

Venus (love, feminine) squares (tension) Mars (male, action) in Sagittarius. When Mars is placed in a fire sign, it’s passionate and energetic. Mars longs for action while Venus wants to dream about love and float on gentle waves of energy. In many ways, this square represents an aspect of human duality—the desire to act on ambition in the physical world (Mars) and the need to relax and rest on the harmony of the spiritual world. (Many of us long for resolution and integration of these two qualities, which will come at a future date.)

Mars (male action) squares Neptune, intensifying the conflict between the desire for peace and mysticism and the need to make changes in the physical world. Both states are needed in our spiritual/physical existence. Squares such as these with Venus/Mars/Neptune ask us to find a harmonious resolution. (It may be helpful to internalize the energies of love (Venus/Neptune) and collective consciousness before taking action in the outer world.)

With these aspects, Sun (outer life), Moon (inner life, emotions) and Mercury (communications, mind) square (tension) Jupiter (good fortune, expansion) in Scorpio.  In this case, Jupiter’s good and expansive nature may work against us. Sun square Jupiter refers to exaggeration, excess, or over-promising. Moon square Jupiter can refer to excessive generosity and/or giving too much to help others—or seeing too much good in others and not the truth. Mercury (mind, communications) square Jupiter can help in creating large, wonderful plans, but they are not usually practical or wise. (Review them in a couple of weeks!)

Jupiter (expansion, beneficial) trines (beneficial)  Neptune (mysticism, idealism) in Pisces, expanding interest about the spiritual path and leading our consciousness into idealistic endeavors. Often, we meet new and different people and/or have new experiences. The trine encourages openness and personal growth.

Uranus is preparing to move into the sign of Taurus. It’s the ruler of this Age and exerts a great deal of influence. It may feel like Mercury retrograde occasionally when traffic suddenly becomes heavy, or the computer works slowly, but it’s the transition of this time. Uranus’ square with Pluto will remain until May. As part of our growth, the two planets ask us to look at the underworld and transform whatever we see into light–or into greater understanding.


  1. The solar eclipse offers another opportunity to reset our minds on a higher ideal.
  2. Sun, Moon, and Mercury in Aquarius attune our consciousness to collective consciousness, changes made through the mind, oneness, and group endeavors.
  3. Venus is exalted in Pisces, deepening our ability to feel and experience love on a cosmic level. This is deepened by Venus’s conjunction with Neptune, the planet that connects everyone on a emotional/astral level. (We may feel more intuitive.)
  4. We’re looking for balance between the activity of the outer world and the quiet contemplation of the inner world. (Venus squares Mars, and Mars squares Neptune.)
  5. The caution is about excess–giving to much, promising too much, and making plans that are too large and not realistic.
  6. Overall, it’s a lovely chart, which can take us into deeper realization and connection with the “all”.

Tips on Loving Yourself


Loving yourself is quite a feat—particularly if you do it in the right way. Like all things worth having, it requires repetition, patience, and devotion. Self-love deserves the effort because life mirrors and expands your love in wonderful ways.

Love is the most expansive force in the Universe. In alchemy, it is said that love is the universal solvent. It dissolves everything into its original nature, which is love. When all else fails, turn to love. Love is the opposite of fear. When we move into love, we raise our vibrations to a frequency that fear and chaos cannot touch or disturb.

It is the substance that underlies the composition of every particle of matter in the Universe. The true source of all is love, which can never fail us if we petition it with our heart, mind, soul, and body. It is by walking through love and opening our hearts that we will find the way.

  • Begin with a practice of making a list of 10 qualities you like about yourself. Read it daily and reflect on these qualities.
  • Send pink light (love) to yourself when you look in the mirror. Send pink light to the parts of your body that you don’t like. (They will improve. I promise.)
  • Devote part of your life to your personal happiness by taking 10 minutes to meditate and 20-30 minutes to exercise. Spend 30 minutes relaxing each day in whatever way is best for you.
  • Break patterns and focus on work (or problems) with 10 minutes of seeing your life differently, then come back to loving yourself. (You’re here for a purpose, and you’re awakening. That’s good!)
  • Pay attention to the times of day when you feel tired. Take a brief walk, rest, and/or find a way to alter your energy and attention. Thank yourself for doing this.
  • Listen to your inner self and take one action based on intuition. (You can also call on your angels and/or guides. Ask for a simple, easy action.)
  • Love yourself when you have a problem–or send pink light to it. Love is a higher vibration that gives insights–and can eventually change a pattern and/or problem.
  • When you complete any of these tasks, smile. Take a moment to feel proud and pleased.

Blue Super Moon!

Blue Moon, Blood Moon, Super Moon, and Eclipse appears on Wednesday, January 31, and it has many names and energies. The lunar eclipse will take place at 9:07 am, and we’ll feel the energy for several weeks. (A lunar eclipse is essentially a reset, a motion into darkness, followed by light.(The eclipse may also stir up patterns and/or longings from last summer’s solar eclipse.) All full moons carry the energetic blueprint of fruition, germination, and realization of dreams. A Blue Moon is simply 2 full moons in one month, and a super moon is closer to the earth than usual. At any rate, it’s all powerful!

There is definitely a magical, beneficial energy associated with the moon. Think of extra light permeating through the darkness, bringing additional illumination. That’s part of what this moon can do, and it’s definitely important to believe in our power to make dreams come true.

The Blue Moon Chart presents both challenges and benevolent energy. Moon (inner self, emotions) trines Mars (male, assertion), which harmonizes feelings and actions. Jupiter (expansion, good fortune) trines Neptune (mysticism, illusion), energizing our hopes and dreams in a positive sense. Saturn (karma) and Uranus (new age) are trine, increasing our ability to combine the old and new (worlds).

The Blue Moon conveys an equation of rewriting the past, letting go of unwanted aspects of life, and putting the two together in a new form. (Of course, the new form is “life”.) The major aspects of the chart fall in fixed signs, indicating the aspects of the self that are strongly anchored in belief, habit, and feeling. (In general, fixed signs have difficulty altering their point of view.)

Here are the major points of interest:

  1. Much of the chart revolves around fixed signs of Aquarius, Leo, and Scorpio. Sun (outer self), Moon (inner self, emotions), Venus (love, material goods), and Jupiter (good fortune). (Fixed signs tend not to express flexibility or openness to change. They do convey both loyalty and patience.) However, this chart is about finding flexibility and openness with parts of the self, others, and the world.
  2. Sun (outer life) and Venus (love, material goods) in Aquarius are conjunct, heightening our interest in the New Age, which opens the mind and spirit to both new techniques and possibilities. However, Moon (emotions) is placed in the fire sign of Leo.
  3. Moon (emotion) opposes (is opposite) Venus (feminine, love). Our emotions will run “hot”, but Venus in Aquarius is detached. The issue brings up the importance of feeling emotion, but expressing them in a way that brings communion and connection (Venus in Aquarius). It’s quite an equation.
  4. Moon trines (harmonious) Mars (action, male) in Sagittarius, a fire sign. Previously, Mars in Scorpio felt emotional and steamy, but Mars in Sagittarius moves life along at a faster pace. The trine will help in taking action to create and realize goals.
  5. Sun, Moon, and Venus square Jupiter in Scorpio. Jupiter (expansion) in Scorpio is all about passion and achieving the heart’s desires. Squares can cause tension or feelings of frustration. In this case, the assignment is to discover how we block our desires through how we live our life (Sun), the expression of our emotions (Moon), and how we love and/or define love (Venus).
  6. Mercury (communications) squares Uranus (higher mind, quantum field), so our intuition will not be completely clear. Likely, we’ll receive hints about changing lives or strong feelings about the future. But we won’t get a clear read.
  7.  Obviously, it’s not a crystal clear chart. Many aspects hint at how to merge parts of the outer self for greater connection and unity. But there’s also a mystery, a feeling of where to go–without clear directions. In spiritual work, this is considered “good” because it causes us to look within for answers that are not evident in the outer world.

Ascension through Sacred Geometry

Presented courtesy Spirit of Maat

Thomas Morton was recognized as one of the world’s leaders in the understanding and application of Sacred Geometry. Here, he talks of how, through utilizing sacred geometry, we can create a vortex of energy that acts as our own inner temple. Upon entering that sacred space in meditation, we can access the deep silence, becoming empowered to recognize lower thought forms and ascend in consciousness and being.

From there, he teaches, we become alchemists, transmuting intent into physical manifestation.

Julia: Just to begin, could you explain for our readers the importance of Sacred Geometry?

Thomas: Most of us who have an interest in Sacred Geometry have a burning desire to understand Creation — to know how everything comes into existence. When we have the desire to understand these things, the path takes us to higher vibrations and frequencies, colors and sounds, as both are one and the same, being but different expression of Energy.

In studying the Sacred Geometry of Creation, we first understand that creation takes place in what is known as “no time and space,” and that it then enters into dimensionality through the intra-dimensional doorway known as the Golden Mean Spiral.

Why do we utilize Sacred Geometry? The purest answer is because it creates for us the frequencies of a controlled place of deep silence, the place of The Silent Watcher, that has no beginning or end. The Golden Mean is the doorway to this place known as “no time and space,” where we can interact with Creation. It is the sacred doorway to the intuitive, the space to where we once again are God in action.

This sacred space is also an environment of a frequency of great understanding within the universal All That Is. En masse, we are creating a tremendous amount of discordant energy on the planet, and in order to again become the Master Presence that we are, we need to cease participating in the thoughts and feelings that give rise to discord. The closer we become to the Creator, the further we move from the analytical mind, and the more we awaken the intuitive mind.

This is our destination: to unlearn, as the Tibetans state it. To once more allow the intuitive to be the directing force, and allow the outer, or analytical, mind to take a step back into its divine plan of carrying out the intuitive.

So the student uses Sacred Geometry to bring in a controlled space for the purpose of entering into the Great Silence, where we then have a choice of which thoughts and feelings we will participate with. The focus and discipline of Sacred Geometry sustains the silent mind. We go into that space in order to send discordant thoughts and feelings into the Light.

Julia: Could you compare the sacred space within a physical temple to the one we create within? How does the sacred space in the physical temple come into being?

Thomas: If we take it as given that there is energy acting within the pyramids and temples, then we might first want to look to the cause of that energy. Every effect has to have a cause, so where does the energy come from?

The greatest source of energy on the earth is electromagnetic energy, energies of outer Creation that actually surround the planet and reside in what is known as the magnetosphere. In essence, the planet is a giant gyro. A solid core that spins faster than the outer shell creates this electromagnetic energy.

It’s important to understand that this energy has the acting energy of the electron, or the intelligent part of the atomic structure.

Seeing this, we can now see that the temples are like antenna to this magnetosphere. They call in a vortex of magnetic energy.

When the electromagnetic energy vortex enters the temple, the electron is split away from the magnetic wave and both are utilized to create three harmonics within the temple itself, and there are in turn three chambers in the Great Pyramid that express these three different frequencies.

The King’s Chamber represents the spiritual, and has the quality of Silence, the place of everything that was, is, and will be.

The Queen’s Chamber is the mental chamber, where for example you could write an equation one mile long and recall it all.

Finally, the catacombs, or the place of the dead, is the place of alchemy, bringing energy into the physical plane or the third dimension. New plant and animal life, for example, could be created here without disharmony, through this great alchemy of love.

So the Great Pyramid represents these three frequencies of energy and the harmonic creation of new forms of life.

Zero point — the controlled space I talked of earlier — is always present in the Great Pyramid. And we also utilize this controlled space in many of the other temples, like Macchu Pichu, that were erected as ascension schools.

The alchemy of creating new forms of life in the ascension temples took place at the time of the solstice, because at the exact moment when the energy switches either from the longest or the shortest day, there is a Zero Point where it was possible to bring these new forms onto the planet harmony with the All That Is.

Likewise, there are three energies or frequencies that are used for creation: Force, Thought (knowing), and Love. In the third dimension, these three aspects of creation are usually experienced as the experience of physicality, mind, and Love. These are the energies that actually surround us in the seen and unseen.

Julia: What about emotional energy?

Thomas: Emotional energy is not noted here because that is simply a combination of feelings and thoughts.

So we can see the representation of Being One with the Universal Creation or All That Is.

But the most important message is that we have a temple within each one of us. All of the great masters have told us of this temple. It is the Temple of the Heart.

All of the great outer ceremonies are simply representational of what we can do and become within. Ascended Master Jesus the Christ said of the miracles he had performed, “All this ye can do, and more.” The true work for each of us is within our own temple.

Julia: How do we create sacred space? How do we apply this in our lives?

Thomas: Sacred space was created before the temples. It is a state of creation itself. We can create sacred space in our own temple. If we pray or meditate in one place regularly, we then create a vortex. By vortex, I mean “spinning energy,” whether it is positive or negative. The personal vortex is also a Golden Mean spiral. The spinning of the chakras creates a doorway into no-time and space. If we can create the doorway, then we have access to the Great Silence.

So we utilize Sacred Geometry to create a sacred space from which to ascend to the point of being Love in Action, in the Now. We can express this ascended God presence in the third dimension by applying or being in the Great Silence. We cannot be generating discord and applying Love divine at the same time. We have to be able to sustain the Love in the Now, and extend it out into the dense world of Creation. The same doorway of the Golden Mean is used in this respect also. We become God in Action.

Julia: What tools do we gain within this sacred space for living in the dense or physical world?

Thomas: The ego, or analytical mind, has been taught that it is in charge, and this teaching must be unlearned. Being in the sacred space teaches us to move beyond the analytical mind and into the intuitive mind. We can encounter the intuitive mind only in sacred space, and from there we can learn to identify the analytical mind.

The analytical mind co-creates doubt, fear, and resistance, as well as the patterns that we play through our mind when we are operating out of habituated behavior, on automatic pilot.

Of course, the analytical mind resists entering this sacred space. We have to realize that we will have doubts and fears about the “inner knowing” or truth that we encounter in sacred space. We have to have the faith and courage to stay with the inner knowing, even when we don’t see proof of what we experienced and felt.

We will still feel doubt and fear, but once we realize that they come from the lower mind, the analytical mind can know that these instead of participating with these thoughts and feelings, we need to transmute them.

The Akashic Records say that the lower, or carnal, mind sprang forth at a certain point in time. This tells us that it is finite, for only finite things have a beginning. Infinity has no beginning. But finite things also have an end. As well as having a beginning point, the finite mind also has an end point. For this reason, it is much more afraid of us, who are conquering it, than we are afraid of it.

And until the lower mind reaches its end point, it will continue to create as much chaos as possible, for that is how it sustains itself. It gets its energy by stealing ours.

When we generate lower thought and feeling, it goes to the lower collective. This is why we must watch carefully within our minds, standing guard not to participate with doubt. For example, the lower mind will definitely seed doubt about what I’m saying here, for it does not want to be found out. It constantly puts our focus on outer things and illusions.

As a result, we need to actually crave discipline. No matter how much resistance we have to meditating each day or being in the sacred space, we need to apply discipline to every aspect of our lives, including eating and breathing. And we need most of all to stand guard on our consciousness.

So we have to have a plan for meditation, a plan for the expression of the true self.

Julia: How is alchemy used in the sacred space? How can we use this practice in creation?

Thomas: Let’s say that we realize the need to meditate and create a sacred space or altar for meditation.

So we do this. And after we accomplish meditation in this place, we have actually changed the energy of that place. We can walk by it and allow ourselves to feel that the energy really has changed.

This is alchemy, the actual change in a physical space caused by spiritual intent.

Alchemy in the mental realms occurs when we seek the silence and transmute our thoughts. So we begin with sacred space and enter into the inner calmness. We then go to work standing guard, transmuting thought and feeing until we reach the Great Silence. And once, through inner work, we have remembered how to reach the Great Silence, we begin to apply this discipline in the Now — in every moment of every day.

When we start to go into deep silence, there will be a feeling of resistance. If we realize that this feeling is a temptation to procrastinate, then we know that this feeling needs to be transmuted.

So, for example, we may remember that we need to make a phone call or feed the dog or balance the checkbook. So we then realize that, of course, all of these things must be done. But right now we are learning not to participate in these thoughts. We are realizing that these thoughts and feelings, which have misled us for so long, are attempting to take us out of the Now. So we stop going along with them.

The best permanent solution I have ever experienced is to be in the great alchemy of lifting up and transmuting these energies, as they seek to intrude, back to their perfect form and color.

So, to sum it up: When we go into this place of silence, the outer/lower mind tries to intrude. But we can identify the thoughtforms of the outer mind and learn to “tag” them when their energy intrudes.

And once we have identified them, we can stop them. For example, we can ask God to take the thoughtform and send it up to the Light. If we do this long enough, this transmutation process will actually become an auto-response to the thought patterns of the outer mind.

If the thoughts are stopped, we can go into a place of true silence. The Light is silent. Peace is silent. We have to move into the silence Now. For there is no other time but Now. We can only be in the silence if we are in the Now. If we are not in the Now, we are out of the silence.

The lower mind is not in charge. It just wants to be. But the analytical mind was actually created for the purpose of carrying out, in physical reality, the commands of the intuitive God Center within each one of us. If we recognize the thought forms and feelings of the lower mind, we have free will and choice. If we don’t recognize them, then we have no choice.

This Now, which is within the heart, is the sacred space of the temple within. This is the place at which we can reach Zero Point and create. We can actually command thought through our feeling center and qualify the particles to act. This is the alchemical act of precipitation. From this point, there is no question as to what we are, what we are becoming. We have willed it; it is as certain as knowing who is coming to dinner because we have invited them to dinner. When we create something at this level, we simply expect it to show up in the manifestation plane.

This is important. Expecting what we create to show up is energy brought into manifestation. It is like looking at the thunderclouds and knowing that it will rain. There is no question.

The laws of Alchemy say to “become the accomplished desire,” to feel it, to be it. When we become the accomplished desire, and do not participate with doubt and sustain the application, we precipitate the desire.

When we command the desire through being centered, we literally command the particles that compose matter to act. This is alchemy — the transmutation of thought into the material plane.

We will be tempted to believe, through the action of doubt, that the accomplished desire will not show up or manifest — that the process didn’t work. But the truth is always that if we don’t participate with doubt, fear, or worry, we will experience what we are intending to manifest. There is a delay or response time — it could be seconds, minutes, or days, depending on the amount of knowing that was applied to the manifestation and our level of previous attainment — but it must happen.

The more you apply these universal laws, the quicker things come into manifestation. But we never wait for the manifestation, for this would mean it has not yet happened. No matter what we may think, God within has acted, and it is up to us to hold this knowing.

In this space/time between universal and manifest — before the precipitation — it is important to transmute all permutations of the lower mind, and this means any feelings or thoughts that relate to doubt, fear, or worry.

All lower things, when raised, pass through the violet flame. These thoughts can be eliminated by sending them through the violet flame, transmuting them, and staying in the place with the accomplished desire. The accomplished desire will then manifest.

This is alchemy. It is how it can be used to manifest the Creation in the sacred space in the temple. We are all temples with sacred space. We can all transmute our feelings and create our desires through this application of alchemy.

We can move dimensionally into ascension through this same application. This is the greatest alchemy of all, to ascend. We do not need workshops, or teachers, or temples any more. We need only to remember what we have always known. We enter into this knowing in The Great Silence.

Julia: Do you have any thoughts in closing?

Thomas: Anyone can create and sustain sacred space. We are all equal. You can remember to transmute the outer or lower mind that will seek to intrude. Whatever you need is here through the application of these Universal Laws.

These things of God are here for our use. You must learn to become disciplined to apply them. Our desires will change from wanting what we want to wanting what we need. We will be again in the dance of life.

We are all here to serve. If you know it, that’s great. If you do it, that’s even better.

For some of us, the ascension process makes us want to run away. For others, we ask what we can do to be of service.

If you are a priest or priestess — someone who understands the Light and Silence — then hold this Love Light of Truth in service so that it is available for those that are moving into this consciousness.

Thomas Morton awakened spiritually at an early age and has been in service ever since. His life has been focused on healing the planet’s energies. To that end he works with both beginners and advanced lightworkers, and travels the world, speaking to groups and working directly with the Earth’s grid.

New Moon Forecast


The New Moon appeared last night on January 16. The New Moon is a time of looking inward and waiting for new life to take form. It’s a time of reflection, which is particularly significant with a lunar eclipse on January 31—when we move in and out of the void. (In metaphysics, the void symbolizes the unknown. By illuminating it with our inner light, we find the path of the soul.)

Much of the New Moon chart is straightforward with six planets including Sun, Moon, Venus, Mercury, Saturn, and Pluto placed in Capricorn. The earth sign of Capricorn is represented by the goat, and it can refer to climbing to new heights, building structure in the inner/outer world, and success in the physical world. (The caution involves not becoming too obsessed by the trappings of the outer world.) All of the planets are direct, aiding with forward movement in the outer world.

When six planets are placed in a single sign, there’s obviously an emphasis on understanding the energies of Capricorn. In this case, the Moon (inner self, emotions) indicates our course. It sits on Capricorn 27, “A Mountain Pilgrimage”, and the mountain often refers to the spiritual quest, the desire to reach for more truth and understanding of qualities of the soul. It is the apex on the journey on a spiritual level although it can refer to reaching for more through career and endeavors in life.

The theme of long term planning, practicality, and releasing the past –– as well as what is unnecessary on our journey — remains for the next two weeks. The best way of discerning this comes from connecting with the inner self and finding the beauty of our personal journey.

Sun (life), Moon (inner self), and Venus (love, relationships) square Uranus (New Age, quantum field). In general, squares cause tension, and Uranus sends eclectic beams of energy that can bring new, fascinating, and original ideas—or interrupt the flow of consciousness. (Expect the unexpected, and review ideas before taking action.)

The universe provides a stable plan and shakes it up with Uranian energy that encourages internal growth, awakening, and seeing life from a different perspective. (Uranus is often erratic so take time to weigh the value of thoughts and ideas.) Along with this, the North Node (our spiritual path) is in Leo, making the quest about love. (It’s about bringing more love into work and everyday life—and following the heart.)

Mercury (communications, mind) placed in Capricorn is highly practical and interested in making the outer aspects of life work well. In this sign, the mind works in a slow, methodical way. Mercury conjuncts (close to) Saturn, which may give insights in overcoming patterns, beliefs, and personal history, which have caused limitation in the past.

Venus (material possessions, love, relationships) tends to run hot and cold in Capricorn with cool responses followed by reactions. which can feel heavy and cold. But it’s also about planning what we want to receive in relationships and how we need to feel love for growth and change. Venus conjuncts (close to) Sun (outer life), Moon (inner life), and Saturn (karma), which increases the possibility of realizations that reveal our inner patterns and limitations while giving insights to heal.

Mars (male, assertion) in Scorpio increases emotional flow. Its Sabian Symbol symbolizes “x-ray vision”, seeing through outer reality and its trappings to underlying truth. Mars conjuncts (close to) Jupiter (expansion, good fortune). Jupiter amplifies and expands whatever it touches, and, in this case, it increases Mars’ desire to take action in the physical world.

Jupiter (expansion, good fortune) in Scorpio trines (beneficial) Neptune (illusion, mysticism) in Pisces. It’s a powerful trine between two forces. In mythology, Jupiter ruled the physical world, and Neptune ruled the seas. Both planets are placed in water, touching our dreams and visions with a lovely, hopeful energy, which is much needed in the world.

Sun, Moon, and Venus conjunct (close to) Pluto, which can increase our power and ability to act as well as our ability to perceive our inner resources. Pluto often presents the “darkness” so that we can find our inner power to transform it from negative to positive state through reflection on the inner self.

Uranus (New Age, awakening) squares Pluto (subconscious, transformation), dredging up both the past and unknown for clearing and change.

Mars (action, male) and Jupiter (expansion) trine Chiron (wounded healer), encouraging healing through positive action and motion. Saturn (karma, limitation) squares (tension) Chiron, indicating the necessity of moving through (or rewriting) the past to heal the fabric of life.

New Year’s Super Moon

The full moon appears at 9:24 pm on January 1. It’s a super moon, close to the earth and energetically intense. Many of the planets are placed in feminine signs, and there are two Grand Trines in water (emotion), indicating harmonious motion through life and calmer emotions.
The first full moon in January is called the Wolf Moon, referring to the stamina and strength of the wolf, which is needed in times of cold and difficulty. The wolf pack is based on the matriarchy with a female wolf that leads as the alpha. (This is a very feminine year, beginning with a full moon and 12 full moons to follow. The original calendars, based on feminine, earth energy, contained 13 moons.)


The Sun is in Capricorn, an earth sign represented by the goat, who can ascend to great heights. Sun (life, outer world) conjuncts Venus (love, beauty) and Pluto (power of transmutation, underworld.) Through love (Venus), it may be possible to use power (Pluto) to transform our world. (Of course, this works best by focusing on the heart.)


Moon (inner world, emotions) is placed in Cancer, the mother of the oceans and life. The Moon trines (harmonious) Mars (assertion, male energy), Jupiter (good fortune), and Neptune (illusion, mysticism, dreaming). The beautiful trines encourage flowing emotion, harmony and good fortune with action, and creative dreaming (manifesting.) (After weeks of charts filled with fire, the full moon chart is restful.)


Mercury (communications, mind) sits in Sagittarius. It trines Uranus, forming a harmonious aspect between the lower (Mercury) and higher, cosmic mind (Uranus). It’s possible to receive information for greater understanding of self and the world. (It’s important to discern between the ego and inner self as Mercury squares Neptune, which can distort the “read”.)


Venus (love, beauty) in Capricorn conjuncts Saturn (karma, limitation), which can make love (temporarily) feel heavy and/or difficult. Venus also conjuncts the Sun, which is uplifting, and it conjuncts (close to) Pluto, which can give the power to transmute old limitations into a new, more powerful outlook on life.


Mars (male, assertion) is conjunct (close to) Jupiter in Scorpio. If the emotional intensity of Mars in Scorpio is used properly, it can flow through limitations/blocks and bring good fortune. Mars also trines (harmonious) Neptune (mysticism, illusion), heightening sensitivity and creativity. (It’s another wonderful aspect for manifestation.)


Jupiter (good fortune, benevolence) trines Neptune (mysticism, illusion), offering positive, creative energy. The aspect increases our desire for magical, mystical experience, and it offers an aura of hopefulness about life. Jupiter also trines Uranus (new age, quantum field), opening our consciousness to innovative and positive ideas.


Fruition, fertility, and growth are conferred by the full moon. With most of the planets in feminine signs (water and earth), it is a chart for growth of emotions, hope, and creativity. It’s a lovely way to begin the year!
