Manifest More!

Manifestation is important because it teaches about how we perceive and live life. When we focus on a heart felt desire, we invoke the universe and the inner self.

  1. Everyone is already manifesting the material of their consciousness  through their experience of “reality.” We are limited by our perceptions and beliefs about life as well as the people in our lives; however, it’s possible to transcend those limits and create big, happy visions. Basically, this involves awakening and rewriting our inner script of beliefs, thoughts, and emotions. When we rewrite our perception of reality, it changes.
  2. Everyone wants financial prosperity, loving relationships, a healthy body, and a deep spiritual connection that provides accurate answers. Meditation and visualization can lead us to the right steps, and the practice completes much of the work on the invisible plane. (In other words, an occurrence or dream takes place much more quickly. We find the right job quickly instead of applying for ten. We visualize meeting the right people, and they appear.)
  3. Action is more effective when accompanied by meditation and visualization. It also requires less effort. Athletes and millionaires use these techniques of visualizing their desired reality in detail. The alteration in overall energy is even more profound when the visualization is prompted by a desire for connection with the inner self. Both practices create results, but universal connection alters everything in our lives.
  4. We meet our resistance within our self. We discover an opposite self, who doesn’t want the manifestation, takes steps in the opposite way, and wants to stay the same. We rewrite the “program” or pattern through visualization, observation, and learning to think and feel new thoughts and emotions. (We also learn to change our personal identity from the person who can’t to one who can.)
  5. Life becomes more exciting through these discoveries. As we learn to change lower patterns into patterns of success, we become enthusiastic about life. We naturally make small adjustments such as altering traffic, wishing good things for others, or seeing more beauty in life. (This changes our world—and the world around us.)
  6. Our vision of our reality and the world changes. We begin to understand how our ‘reality” responds to our thoughts and emotions. We also learn how to change our perception of life because we understand the seeing the “goodness” is part of what brings it into our lives.
  7. We naturally live on a higher vibration as a result of participating in manifestation. We begin to see problems as areas of life, which require a higher frequency, meditation, or inspired action. We also begin to “know” that other people are doing the same thing. It’s how we meet our True Self through meditation–and connect with others who align with the universe in the same beautiful way.

Working with a Higher Light Level

Many people are awakening, and we are experiencing higher vibrations as a result. Higher vibrations also bring a capacity for heightened emotion and sensation—and they help us tap into the divine. In a heightened state, everything is beautiful, and we wouldn’t want it any other way. It’s just that the side effects are not always easy. 

Occasionally, everyone struggles with a higher light level in a lower level society. We may do very well until we encounter someone with lower vibrations, or a problem appears. We may feel tired when stressed and/or when solar flares are at a height. It’s important to understand we’re becoming more sensitive to energy at large.

Let’s take a look at what’s happening in our energy field:

1)      Collective consciousness and intuition are growing stronger. As you step into the light, you become more connected and intuitive. This means you feel energy and other people more—not less.

2)      Energy tends to run downhill like a river flowing down a mountain. If your energy is highest in a room, your energy flows out to everyone else. (Yes, this happens at dinner, parties, and with crowds.)

3)      Your energy is speaking to you. Everyone changes with enlightenment. You notice other people’s negativity. You notice the energy level of a particular place. You may encounter food allergies and/or physical pain when your energy level is low, or you feel particularly tired.

4)      Mass consciousness represents the lower global group consciousness. If you feel extreme tiredness, anxiety, or fear, you’re connected to group consciousness. (This tends to occur as one negative thought followed by extreme emotion.)

Possible Solutions:

1)      Currently, a single solution doesn’t exist. It is helpful to raise your energy level through meditation and asking for connection with your higher self. It always helps to engage in activities, which bring happiness and connection.

2)      Contact with nature helps. Nature exudes a beautiful, soft vibration and clears discordant energies. Plan a ten minute walk or run. Meditate outside.

3)      Find a teacher or coach to help in making sense of your feelings. When you understand the stimuli, which lower your energy, you can take certain steps to make incremental change. It may involve changing your diet, resting or meditating more, or simply seeing life differently. Lowered energy teaches a great deal about your overall energy level—including thoughts, emotions, and recognition of the energies that support you in life. (Learn from your senses and emotions. For example, I thought a particular perfume, worn by others, elicited allergies. Later, I realized the perfume was chosen by specific people linked together on an energetic level. I reacted to the energy—not the fragrance. I can block out the frequency by asking for help from the universe.) Observe and learn!

4)      Disconnect from mass consciousness. Ask for a higher energy level. Visualize light (pink or light blue light) everywhere. Ask for disconnection from mass consciousness.  Ask the universe to connect with your higher self.

5)      Face the truth. Sometimes, lower energy indicates inappropriate actions or contact with people in your life. It’s a message from the universe to alter your life. You may have to change your schedule, rest more often, or alter your interactions with people in your life. Light alters your life. It won’t encourage interaction with people on a lower plane in day to day living.

3)      Sometimes, lower energy comes from pushing through resistance, which is good. It takes a great deal of energy as does facing the truth. (It’s hard.) Lowered energy can also come from living a life that is not in alignment with your highest good. Maybe, you don’t need crowds, or you need to change your job. Perhaps, you need more meditation with a visualization focused on vitality and health.

A simple solution doesn’t exist for the symptoms of a higher light level, but you can take steps to discover more. You can change the patterns of your daily life.  You can notice what does or doesn’t bother you when your energy is high or low. You can see all of this as a grand energetic experiment and notice the consistencies. You can disconnect from mass consciousness several times each day, and you can thank the universe for your place in a time of group awakening!

Words from the Wolves

Through the splendor of deep woods, mountains, and streams, we watch the moon rise while contemplating the changes on the earth. The changes are only beginning, but they bring about a better place for living as time passes.

We listen to the whales and dolphins, and we hear your thoughts. We watch your evolution, and we send deep waves for your growth. We know you best when you stood in your power, and we have traveled through time with you—reincarnating with you and waiting for you to reawaken into the gift of abundance and love that has always been yours.

There is a great and divine blueprint for this earth in which you align with who you truly are and create from your heart. In this paradigm, there is not jealousy or greed or fear because you know how to create, and it is only a matter of expanding your imagination. (Limitation is a trick of the mind.)

Accessing this world starts with the self through the memory bank of remembering who you are—a person who has temporarily forgotten their powers–a person is waiting to remember the voice of the heart. You have also forgotten the joy of creating, which brings a feeling of tremendous longing and a desire to create in a different, new way.

This new way of creating brings joy and ease. It lifts you from your karma of repetitive, unsatisfying creating and aligns you with the path of the universe where everything you create opens your consciousness and leads to truth, deeper understanding, and love for your planet—and all races including creatures, plants, and stones. For these other creatures wear the fabric of the earth, loving yourself and loving life are part of the lesson.

What time is it?

There is a resurgence from the past with old wisdom emerging, species reappearing, and the old rhythm of the first perfect earth. At the moment, it combines in a dance with the New Age, the Paternal Age, and the many civilizations that have been created since the beginning of time.  

A Feminine or Maternal Energy is also awakening on earth. Think of it as a feminine creation to unite the physical and spiritual worlds. It is a return to nature and to your own divine nature.

For whatever reason, it is possible—at this time—to begin to a return to the old knowledge, which is now coupled with new energy from the beginning of a possibly incredible new age. There are many aspects of this world that are not alignment, and your efforts at technology have put nature into an unbalanced state. However, this can be corrected as new energies continue to immerse you in their waves.

Our desire is the realization and awakening of the memory of the moments of light, transcendence, and enlightenment to emerge. You are creators, and you were born to be creators of beauty, possibility, and infinitely new and wonderful forms of nature. You were meant to live in harmony and a state of continual evolution in which you hear the inner self and universe on a continual basis.

What Is Happening in the World? Why Does It Feel So Odd?

When the two dualities blend – such as the Piscean and Aquarian Age and/or the New and Old Worlds, it creates a cloud of chaos. But all universes come from chaos and movement. It does not feel good to you because you are unaccustomed to your linear path, but everything in nature makes curves, spirals, and circles.

It is teaching you to live in a different way. Typically, your lower thoughts and feelings surface when the energies react and blend. These energies, which you call karma, are lower energies that are in the way of your evolution. (Only awakened or more evolved people experience them.) If you respond correctly by linking to the universe, focusing on your heart, or moving into a higher space of consciousness, they are resolved. (A Happier Life ensues.)

The blending energies also create a space between time when it is much easier to connect with the universe and create both spiritual and physical time. It is possible to create on a much deeper and more imaginative level. It’s also wise to think of freedom, creativity, and joy as the desired result. Through this focus, you find yourself.

Full Moon Forecast/Eclipse

As I watch the Full Moon appear in the cerulean sky, the beauty and light are astonishing. The fireflies rise like tiny lanterns, and the trees sway in the sky.

The Full Moon in Capricorn and Partial Eclipse carry a higher, more loving vibration for those who can tap into it. With Sun in Cancer (the mother, the home, and sea) and Moon in Capricorn (father, earth, and outer structure), the old masculine and feminine energies are brought to the surface for transformation. 

As the New World rises, we clear old frequencies and open to embrace the beauty of a new reality. All of us are releasing personal karma as we discard old perceptions about life, love, and the male/feminine energies-as we move to embrace the “new”. It may take time to create alignment with the new wave of energy, but it’s part of a new beginning.

The eclipse occurred at 5:38 pm ET  on July 16 with a wide array of opposing energies for dissemination and balance. (Opposite energies are necessary to live in duality-and are important in alchemy.)
Sun conjuncts (close to) Mercury (communications) in Leo, and Venus (love, relationships) in Cancer. Sun conjunct Mercury increases the focus of intellect, and Sun conjunct Venus amplifies emotions concerning love.

Sun is in opposition with Saturn (karma, time, structure) in Capricorn and Pluto (subconscious, transformation) in Capricorn. The positive feminine feelings of Sun in Cancer are at odds with the old patriarchy of Saturn and Pluto. (Change begins in the mind and emotions, and Pluto knows how to heal the darkness of time and create a rebirth—if we allow it.)

Moon (emotions) in Capricorn is in opposition to Mercury (communications, thought) and Venus (love, relationships). Emotions and thoughts may seem loud and chaotic periodically. Moon conjuncts Saturn (time, karma, structure), encouraging a choice between the two aspects of Saturn—approval, money, and social status in the outer world or devotion and discipline to live in alignment with the inner world.

Mercury (thought, communications) is retrograde in Leo, a passionate, fire sign. With 5 other retrograde planets, we may feel somehow disconnected between periods of frustration with electronics! Mercury conjuncts Mars (action, masculine), and this helps in acting on our thoughts in the physical world. Mercury squares (tension) Uranus, bringing sudden reactions from the universe in relationship to our thoughts.

Venus (love, partnerships) is in opposition to Saturn (karma, time), which can make loved ones seem and/or feel cold when it’s not true. Venus in Cancer is more sensitive than usual. Venus trines Neptune (illusion, mysticism), opening our hearts to the divine.

Mars (action, male) trines Jupiter, giving strength and boldness with our desires. Mars in Leo squares Uranus (sudden change, quantum field.) With this aspect, it’s wise to become calm before taking action and to think actions through at least twice.

Jupiter (expansion, good fortune) squares (tension) Neptune (mysticism, illusion) asks for curbing optimism with creative projects. We should choose to focus on hard work—and not depend on the value of the idea.

Sun (life), Mercury (communications), and Venus (love) are opposition to Pluto, and it focuses on the healing and transformation that come from looking at false perceptions and illusions. Moon (emotions) and Saturn (limitation, karma) conjunct (close to) Pluto, and they amplify the Plutonian energy.

Mercury (communication), Mars (action), and Jupiter (good fortune) trine (harmonious) Chiron, the wounded healer. Through right communication and action, we can find the beautiful healing needed to clear our wounds.

NOTES:

  1. Many aspects of the chart are difficult, but there is a new, beautiful vibration that helps in moving into love. By aligning with the vibration, we can clear karma and create change.
  2. Beautiful aspects are found between Sun, Venus, and Neptune. We can more easily open our hearts and lives to the Divine.
  3. The Mother/Father (Sun in Cancer, Moon in Capricorn) energy is altering and bringing change. It’s time to revise our feelings and align with the New.
  4. Five planets and Chiron are in retrograde. It causes difficulty in seeing our way clearly, so it’s important to listen to our heart.
  5. Take time to reflect on thought/action before acting. Mercury is retrograde, and Mercury/Mars square Uranus.

New Moon/Solar Eclipse, portal for change

Feel emotions, clear patterns, and move more deeply into the spiritual nature. It’s how we evolve, and the placement of many planets in water will help in gaining awareness. By contemplating the feeling of inner connection, we can rise above the emotional waves.

The solar eclipse occurred on July 2, marking the calendar of inner and outer changes for the summer. Many metaphysicians and astrologers believe it opened a gateway to higher consciousness.

The eclipse is believed to be one of the bridges between the past and future—a turning point for higher awakening and inner realization. It involves releasing old patterns of the past while embracing a new future that is necessary to find with our hearts

Light and darkness play through the chart. Sun (life), Moon (emotions) and Venus (love, relationships) in Cancer heighten emotions and sensitivity to other people. Cancer is a beautiful water sign ruling the Mother, the Sea, and the yin/yang of emotion. The Great Mother (or Feminine) has many faces, ranging from nurturing to profuse emotion to hiding emotion and repressed feelings. (The feminine is represented by the sea and the earth on this planet.) It may take time and healing to fully resurrect the spirit of the feminine in our culture.

(The feminine is represented by the sea and the earth on this planet.) It may take time and healing to fully resurrect the spirit of the feminine in our culture.

Saturn (karma, limitation, time) asks for review of our lives, particularly with old patterns and karmic cycles. (It’s necessary to make changes to move deeply in an awakened state.) Emotions can reflect our feelings about the self and the past. By altering our emotions, we create a new life. With Saturn’s involvement, inner and outer work are implied. Saturn also rules devotion, hard work, and study, which are needed on the path to awakening.

Sun and Moon sextile (positive) Uranus, opening our minds to new insights and solutions, and Sun/Moon trine (harmonious) Neptune (mysticism, illusion), which can offer ideas and dreams from the “other” side.

Mercury (communications, higher mind) is placed in Leo but moves into retrograde on July 7. It will swing back into Cancer, encouraging confusion between thoughts and emotions for the remainder of July. (The protocol includes expecting delays with travel, communication, and electronics, refraining from purchases of electronics, and resting while reviewing life.)

Venus (love, relationships) moves into Cancer today, heightening the level of emotion about love and personal perception of how others love us. The planet sextiles (positive) Mars, balancing the female/male energies.

Mars (energy, male) is placed in Leo, which ignites our passion for motion in life. It encourages expression of our passion and increases awareness of the heart. Mercury (communication) and Mars (male, energy) squares (tension) Uranus (sudden change, awakening), which asks for moderation – and not sudden action – when contemplating new ideas and thoughts.

Mars is in opposition to Pluto (subconscious, underworld) and asks to see the darkness in ourselves and in the world. It’s not an easy task, but it’s part of knowing where to send light and create a positive shift. Saturn (limitation, karma) conjuncts Pluto, which increases our ambition and desire for success. But many planets are retrograde, and it’s more of a time for contemplation than putting active ideas into form.

Chiron (wounded healer) in Aries is retrograde, which can aid in reflection and insights about healing our wounds.

The chart asks for personal and global insights about darkness in life, but it also opens a portal for spiritual growth. It places our focus on the patterns that play havoc with our emotions, but it also gives the Great Mother (Cancer) to nourish and heal them.

When we see the darkness in ourselves, others, or the world, we have the option of calling on the light. From there, we can find our power, send love, and ask for change. We have the tools to create the desired change, but we must find them within.

Tips:

  1. The energy is intense. It can be useful in creating new, positive patterns in life–if you’re willing to examine our emotions and reactions.
  2. If you’re feeling fear, insecurity, or emotional pain, come back to your heart. Focus on light. Your true identity resides in higher emotions. Contemplate and observe. Choose the path that leads to the inner self.
  3. See this as the right time to change old, familiar (but unhappy) patterns.  You access your inner power when you break old emotional/mental cycles. (Send light to yourself and your life. Visualize the opposite of your experience.) Trust the process. Meditate. Believe in your power to change your personal world.
  4. Many planets are retrograde, and there’s a weird, floating feeling. It’s okay. Go with it. It’s part of the shift. (In a sense, you’re between worlds.)
  5. When you see the darkness in yourself, others, or life, send love and light. Change the story. See it differently. It’s what you came here to do.

It’s time for Awakening Classes 2019

In this time of awakening, it’s possible to come together as a group for greater evolution. The Awakening Class offers an opportunity to move into a higher level of spiritual understanding by mastering basic techniques of manifestation, which helps in connecting with the Inner Self.

You CAN CREATE a Better Life! By Connecting with Your Inner Self!

How Is It Different From Other Manifestation/Awakening Classes?

My manifestation and awakening techniques really work unlike most that are currently taught. Practice is needed, but it’s supplied in class. We repeat exercises in different ways so you can find what works best for you. Soon, they will become second nature, and you’ll use them throughout your life.

I can see energy, and I know it your energy is aligned with the work. If not, we change the exercises and/or shift your energy. I personally talk with you, read your emails, and hold the image of your success throughout the class. (I’ve taken many classes and never encountered a teacher who does this in group classes.) I can send or transmit energy to you.

We also work on discovering the inner self and loving who we are. This is one of the most important transformations in awakening and inner work.

In every class, we meditate and practice techniques to reach a higher vibration, which brings feelings of happiness and peace. It also insulates us from many of the chaotic sensations of the outer world.

What does the class include?

  • 27 hours of classes, consisting of 3 one hour classes each month. You receive a written lesson and a recording of class that can be downloaded.
  • Self-study sheets, which help in gaining awareness and aid with inner discovery. You also receive the recordings of free teleseminars and other group recordings.
  • 4 fifteen minute readings with Julia. These sessions help in clearing blocks, alignment with the inner self, and progress on your path. Students can also email Julia for advice and transmission of energy when needed. (Very few classes offer this type of support.)
  • A Facebook group for comments and questions.

What Will I Learn?

  • The class offers basic techniques to raise your frequency, detach from (and recognize) lower vibrations, and rarely taught Manifestation Techniques. Every class raises your frequency.
  • Some of the topics include communicating with angels, changing your perceptions, animal communication (can be used with loved ones), projecting waves of happiness, success, and well being, following your intuition to create positive change, “speaking” intuitively to others, opening your heart to love, soul contracts, distinguishing between the inner self and the ego, learning how to ask the universe for help, and attuning to the Universe for answers. Additionally, we work on protecting the energy field, interacting with people in your life, and changing your every day life.
  • Clearing Blocks and Patterns. You’ll learn techniques to work on getting through blocks and understanding/clearing patterns.
  • . The classes teach the art of using energy to create change in life through esoteric and practical techniques–as well as many of the special techniques, which Julia learned from the wolves.

Why Should I Take The Class?

Unlike most manifestation classes, this one truly works. Students have found the love of their life, created financial prosperity, and/or simply felt happier and better about life. Almost everyone finds a greater sense of peace and harmony while improving their life.

When Does It Begin?

Class begins on Wednesday, July 10 and goes through March 2020. Classes on are Wednesday night at 8 pm. ET. It’s fine to listen later.

How Do I Sign Up?

Send an email to Julia at onetrueself@gmail.com She will make an appointment to talk about class with you and help you sign up for class if it’s a good fit . (No one gets into class unless she knows the techniques with work with your consciousness.)

About Julia

Julia studied Zen, Buddhism, Shamanism, the Kabala, Alchemy, astrology, herbalism, and  yoga as well as meditating for much of her life. When she met real wolves, she began to hear and perceive the voices of plants, animals, and people. Julia translated these experiences into techniques and understanding about energy that can transform your life.

Why Does Life Feel So Intense?

You may see master numbers like 11:11 or 22:22 while encountering synchronicity constantly—or you may feel frustrated and overwhelmed emotionally. A small event may send you reeling back into the worst of childhood memories, but you’re totally peaceful after a few minutes of meditation.

What’s happening? The earth (and humanity) are experiencing huge waves of light, solar storms, and fluctuations in geomagnetic field. Astrologically, we’re preparing for a New Moon/Solar Eclipse on July 2. (The chart lines up with aspects of the United States’ natal chart. Think about what you love about it because conjunctions intensify both good and bad.) Mercury retro begins on July 7 and extends throughout the month. A lunar eclipse comes on July 16 along with many retrograde, outer planets. Obviously, the earth and nature are changing with the current cosmic changes.

Yes, the energy will become stronger, and people will probably become more reactive unless the “conscious” group devotes to more meditation.

Why Are People So Emotional?

Light amplifies everything. Think about shining a huge light on a room. You’ll see the dust and dirt hidden beneath the surface. The same is true with the self.

The past is “up” for examination. It usually doesn’t feel good to relive mistakes and painful events. However, it’s how you evolve. However, karma is simply a lower vibration. When you learn how to maintain a higher vibration and/or new vibrations, you displace karma and create new opportunities in life. (Light and/or a higher frequency actually connects you to the quantum field where energy behaves very differently, creating small and large miracles.)

What About Self-Sabotage?

Self-sabotage and mistakes come from a relatively, small part of the self. If you’re experiencing awakening and/or higher consciousness, you’re probably complex with many, different parts of the self.

Only a small part of you (one part of the self) is making mistakes, and it occurs when you’re not awake. This part of the self will share ideas and thoughts when you’re not paying attention. They often sound good because they are part of an old pattern—a program to keep you in the comfort zone of staying the same. You’re noticing self-sabotage because you’re awakening. Otherwise, you wouldn’t notice it. You’d think life wasn’t working, and it wasn’t your fault.

NOTE: It doesn’t help to feel guilt or blame yourself. It’s best to know a small part of you created the dissonance. Send light to it. Promise to do better.

What Can You Do?

It’s important to remember this is a time of awakening. There are huge opportunities for growth in consciousness, manifesting our dreams, and bringing wholeness into this incarnation. (I didn’t say it was easy!)

Meditation and manifestation are very important because meditation teaches connection with the Divine, and manifestation teaches us how to reach the quantum field. They both raise your frequency, which how spiritual change takes place. (It’s not selfish because we learn – and want to – share whatever we manifest with others. It’s particularly true if you’re creating from your heart.)

Focus on the heart in moments of chaos. Ask for help instead of focusing on problems. Call on your angels, guides, and the universe. Imagine having the solution instead of searching for it.

There’s a part of you that knows what to do. You may not find it right away, but it will appear if you focus on it.

Summer Solstice: Substantial Shift in Energy

Image by Amanda Clark

Midsummer’s Night evokes images of Titania, Queen of the Fairies, walking amidst forest creatures as she stirs magic in the heart of humans. Summer solstice is a mystical time. Solstices and equinoxes create a doorway into the spiritual world that can heighten evolution, which helps in raising our energy to a higher vibration. The solstice brings an influx of light, which can literally illuminate dreams and desires. (We can “see” the light of the solstice as illuminating our dreams/desires and bringing them into form.)

The summer solstice chart includes both excellent and challenging aspects. We’re experiencing a carry-over from Monday’s Full Moon when it was conjunct Galactic Center. There is the unusual and uplifting aspects of Jupiter (good fortune) conjunct Galactic Center. (Some astrologers believe Galactic Center represents light, love, and the quantum field—the place of grace, mysticism, and the “good” in life.) Additionally, the light and intensity of Monday’s full moon will carry over into the forecast.

With Sun in Gemini and Moon in Aquarius, thought is illuminated, increasing access to the higher mind. Sun (life) and Moon (emotions) are in air signs, stimulating mentality and the higher mind. It’s important to take time to meditate and stay in a calm state of mind for good discernment when the mind moves rapidly. Venus sits in Gemini, and emphasis on the mind can it (too) easy to confuse other people’s thoughts and mental state with our own.

Mercury (thought) is placed in Cancer, an emotional, water sign, and this placement can lead to strong emotional reactions and confusing thoughts and feelings. For example, we may think of someone from the past and feel angry or sad—when the true message concerns a higher state of mind.

Challenging…But Ultimately Fulfilling

Sometimes, we have to endure obstacles to align with the inner self, but I’ve never known anyone who regretted the decision. The challenging aspects of a chart can gift wisdom, insight, and understanding. Such is the case with oppositions between Mercury and Mars and Saturn and Pluto.

Mercury (thought) and Mars (action, energy) are both in Cancer, stimulating strong emotions. The planets are in opposition to Saturn (time, karma) and Pluto (regeneration, subconscious). Saturn and Pluto want us to see where our lives are aligned with our inner self. Mars is emotional in Cancer, and it tends to express lower emotions such as blame or anger when confronted with the larger plan. (Many students have written and asked about the part of the self that sabotages their efforts. It’s easy to see at this point because of the oppositions between Mars (energy, action in life) and Mercury (thought) with Saturn (time, karma) and Pluto (regeneration). The real point is to align our lives with the inner self in a new, wonderful way.)

Saturn and Pluto are much stronger in this chart than Mercury and Mars in Cancer. Saturn (limitation, karma) can operate as an instructor who indicates the best alignment for our path, and Pluto tends to demonstrate the darkness of others, the world, or the self in our lives.  If we permit it, the two planets can pull us through patterns such as self-sabotage, self-indulgence, and lack of discipline. By releasing some of these characteristics, we can open to Galactic Center and the power of the solstice. (It’s a wonderful to begin devotion to meditation, a new endeavor, or to develop a gift.)

Additional Aspects

Venus (love, relationships) in Gemini increases mental activity. Venus in Gemini is intense about social interaction, interested in widening her romantic and social circle, and riveted by mental activity. However, it’s easy to miss the depth and meaning of life when experiencing a social whirlwind. The other half of the message involves slowing down and feeling the true energies of the others and the beauty of the world in the summer months.

Venus opposes Jupiter (good fortune), hinting at the importance of taking life slowly and finding answers with the heart—not the mind. Venus squares (tension) Neptune (mysticism, illusion), which can increase our ability to see beauty in life but can cause confusion in separating fact and fantasy.

Saturn (limitation, karma) conjuncts Pluto (subconscious, transmutation). It’s a powerful duo, working together to bring power into our lives and to teach proper application. Saturn wants perfection and continual do-overs, and Pluto pushes achievement. They cycle back and forth, tearing down and building up. (It’s a long-term influence that can recreate our lives in a higher form or bring alignment with the excesses of the ego.)

Mercury (mind, communications) trines Neptune (mysticism, illusion), bringing the rational and intuitive mind in union and heightening creative abilities. Venus (love, relationships) squares Neptune, which may bring misconceptions and delusions about love. Mars (action, male) trines Neptune, and the aspect heightens sensitivity and sympathy for others. Jupiter (expansion, good fortune) squares Neptune, which can lead us astray, taking us out of practical routines and into unrealistic expectations. (Stay slow and steady.)

Sun squares Chiron (wounded healer), indicating mental activity may move in the opposite direction of healing. Many aspects in the chart hint at healing through self-observation, a slower, insightful pace, and a desire to see through illusion and focus on truth.

Tips:

  1. Jupiter’s alignment with Galactic Center brings love, light, and expansion.
  2. Many planets in air (mind) can increase mental activity. Work to center on the heart and locate the higher mind. (This aspect can also align us with the nervousness and agitation of others. Notice this and pull back into the self.)
  3. Saturn (limitation, time) and Pluto (underworld, transmutation) want a discovery of how our personal programs lack alignment with the inner self as well as a meaningful shift in the right direction.
  4. Neptune (mysticism, idealism) clouds the overall picture with illusion, heightened intuition, and beauty. Discernment is necessary.
  5. It is a chart that can bring evolution. Nature and the spiritual world will be open and cooperative on the solstice.
