New Moon: Time to Recalibrate

Image by Christian Schloe

 

October’s New Moon brings fruitfulness with the motion of flowing trees, blue lakes, and bright, changing color of the mountains. With Sun, Moon, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn in air signs, it’s the time to dream of harvests—the fruit of the soul and personal effort. (Air rules the mind, and the mind works best when united with the heart, which is the keeper of true vision.)

Think of butterflies, birds, and hummingbirds that navigate through breezes, storms, and fluctuations of the wind. Likely, we’ll move in many directions for the next week or two; yet, we choose our destination through the focus of mind and spirit.

The New Moon on October 6 is a time of recalibration, involving inner work and a new vision of the future self. It’s a time to dream of action although it is a very passive time with several planets in retrograde, including Mercury—which brings motion of life to a halt.

With Sun (life), Moon (emotions), Mercury (mind), and Mars (action) in Libra, we can move deeply into the loveliness of life. There’s an emphasis on beauty, creativity, and harmony. We create harmony by observing where life is out of balance and by making adjustments. (It’s helpful to contemplate the perfect day with a balance between meditation, work, relaxation, and time spent in nature. With the increasing energy of the feminine, there’s an increased need for both stillness and action.)

Sun, Moon, and Mercury are conjunct, allowing deep communication between the outer self, emotion, and the inner mind. Sun, Moon, and Mercury conjunct Mars (action), meaning our outer actions can align more easily with life, mind, and emotion

Sun, Moon, Mercury, and Mars trine Jupiter, the planet of good fortune.  Trines with Jupiter are harmonious, bestowing balance, good luck, and optimism. Sun trine Jupiter brings opportunities for spiritual, personal, and material growth. Moon trine Jupiter lifts emotions, increases happiness and encourages positivity in relationships. Mercury trine Jupiter aids with organization and planning the future. Mars trine Jupiter heightens self-confidence and decisiveness.

Sun, Moon, and Mars trine Saturn (limitation, karma, structure). Saturn is also Father Time, representing the lessons learned throughout life along with the perseverance, dedication, and commitment necessary to overcome earthly bonds. Through wisdom, we look at the past and apply the lessons to the present and future. (Positive aspects with Saturn also benefit organization and the creation of structure for the future). Sun trine Saturn indicates a time of achievement and recognition. Moon trine Saturn gives emotional strength, patience, and the ability to overcome problems in domestic life. Mars trine Saturn accelerates strength and persistence to complete tasks and stay aligned with goals.

Mercury (communications, travel, mind) is retrograde in Libra (air sign), which slows motion, completion, and (temporarily) the realization of desires. It’s important to think about our true nature and the best forms of expression, which align with the heart. With this end in mind, we can weigh the value of various designs and directions in life. Mercury squares Pluto (subconscious, transformation); it relates to obsessiveness with specific ideas and lack of openness to other or new possibilities.

Venus (love, relationships) in Scorpio is intense, magnetic, and emotion. Venus squares Jupiter with desires for self-indulgence, impulsiveness, and deepening bonds with others. Venus trines Neptune (illusion, mysticism), enabling a connection with divine and the ability to intuit hidden spiritual truths. The aspect also heightens universal, unconditional love.

Jupiter (good fortune, expansion) and Saturn (limitation, karma) are placed in Aquarius, and they square Uranus, the planet of sudden change. The square with Uranus causes tension and agitation. It can also open our consciousness to new possibilities.

We may experience a huge desire to move ahead with our dreams and commitments, but it’s not quite the time. Sun, Moon, Mercury, and Mars oppose (180 degrees) Chiron, the wounded healer, and they also oppose Midheaven, the height of our personal/group spiritual quest.

It’s a time to recalibrate by taking a deep look at ourselves and life. Perhaps, our inner self has a different take on our goals and dreams—or a better viewpoint of how we see ourselves.

Notes

  • The New Moon is the time for planning for the ensuing 28-day moon cycle, releasing what Is not needed, and connecting with the unseen world to find our way. When we cannot see clearly in the dark, we go within to discover new knowledge and methods of moving through life.
  • The chart speaks of contemplation and self-observation as a deeper method of choosing one’s course through life. It’s time to feel the direction of our inner, spiritual destiny, but it’s not time to act on it.
  • Saturn (limitation, karma, structure) and Pluto (subconscious, transformation) will become direct this week and aid in moving life in the direction of goals and dreams. However, the outcome of action is limited with Mercury retrograde, and it’s wise to make plans for later in the month or early November as opposed to the current moon phase.
  • Positive trines are found throughout the chart, and they can uplift the spirit, heighten optimism, and encourage personal, spiritual, and career growth. The aspects are wonderful for long-term planning and completing projects.

Full Harvest Moon

In early fall, bright leaves intermingle with summer flowers, and the light grows dimmer.  As cooler weather appears, the trees are adorned with radiant colors, the sky turns clear blue, and the world sparkles. This transformation takes place between the signs of Virgo and Libra.

 The Full Moon appears on Monday, September 20 at 7:54 pm ET.  The Autumn Equinox follows on September 22 with a day/night of balanced light and darkness. The Full Moon brings a period of heightened emotion and growth; it increases the overall energy of the planet. September’s New Moon brought potential to manifest, and the Full Moon brings examination of blocks and limitations along with powerful energies to create and take action.

Sun (life, light) is placed in the last degrees of Virgo, which alternately represents the virgin priestess (virgin=metaphysically pure), the perfectionist, and the servant. In all three cases, the character refers to a series of actions in the physical world, which produce a tangible result. With recent energetic changes, it may refer to the need to moving into purity, perfecting our perception of life, and serving more of the needs of the inner self.

Sun conjuncts Mars (action, energy), giving physical vitality and strength—including perseverance with dreams and goals. The Sun trines (harmonious) Saturn (limitation, karma), evoking strength and understanding from the past. Sun opposes Neptune, creating a mist between the moment of searching and perceiving the future.

Moon (emotions, inner self) is beautifully placed in Pisces, a water sign, which adds emotion along with a tendency to recall the past. The Moon is in opposition to Mars (action), creating conflict between the desire for action and various emotions. Moon conjuncts (close to) Neptune in Pisces, and this heightens the ability to glimpse the unseen world, intensifies night dreams, and increases artistic ability and insight.

Pluto, the outer planet ruling the underworld/subconscious and transformation—basically from the River Styx to the flight of the phoenix—involves six planets including Sun, Moon, Mercury, Mars, Uranus, and Neptune.  Pluto also rules mass consciousness, the quality of many minds and emotions when we come together as one on a higher or lower vibration. (Many of the aspects are positive. Interestingly, it’s an important time to avoid social media and news; perhaps, it’s time to create a positive/personal global worldview.)

 Mercury (communications) sits in Libra, encouraging reflection and balance. Mercury trines (harmonious) Jupiter (good fortune, expansion), meaning the right thoughts can accelerate and open our path to growth. Mercury squares (tension) Pluto (subconscious, transformation), which intensifies and deepens our thoughts.

Mercury (mind, communications) moves into retrograde on September 27, and it’s important to begin new endeavors before this time. Mercury retrograde is a passive time of reviewing the past and envisioning/rewriting the future; it’s not the right time to begin a new project.

Venus is in Scorpio, a water sign with intensity and depth—as well as emotion. Venus is in somewhat of a “mood” as she squares Saturn, bringing in karma and memories from the past. Venus opposes Uranus, increasing erratic reactions in love relationships and partnerships.

Mars (action) is typically strong willed and full of desire, but it’s more passive and pensive when placed in Libra. The emphasis shifts to diplomacy, fairness, and seeing both sides of the equation. It’s also useful for bringing balance to social issues. On the other side of the equation, Mars trines Saturn (limitation, karma), adding strength and ambition to the mix. Mars trine Pluto (subconscious/transformation) adds will and desire.

Jupiter (good fortune) and Saturn (limitation/karma) square Uranus (change, quantum field). These aspects tend to draw a sharp line between opposite field of thought and belief. Jupiter and Saturn are both placed in Aquarius, which concerns electronics (how much is good/bad?), the future, and humanity as a whole.

Uranus (sudden change, quantum field) offers a time to approach life from a new view. It brings constructive change, a restful period to heal and recreate our lives.

Tips and Thoughts

  • The combination of Sun in Virgo and Moon in Pisces is vibrant and energizing. Earth and water help to create in physical form.
  • Mercury in Libra encourages balance, harmony, and reflection. Meditate on the thoughts that align with the inner self for expansion.
  • Venus is not happy or relaxed in this chart. Pull back from disagreements and look for balance when possible. Focus on smooth emotions.
  • Mars is Libra is more reflective than usual, but aspects with Saturn and Pluto intensify the will and ambition.
  • The many aspects with Pluto lend an opportunity to strengthen the will, follow desires, and find the courage to find a new path.

Full Moon Forecast, A Dance of Opposites

 

 

 

Litha, Goddess of Abundance by Keli Clark

 

In the beauty of verdant summer, the planets send mixed messages. One moment, we’re connected, and the next we’re not. It’s called oscillation, and, at this point, it’s caused by oppositions with several planets. (Our emotions literally go from high to low.)

Oscillation occurs naturally on the spiritual path—often without planetary influence. The lesson is about learning to center in the heart space and/or finding the inner self. In this place, the emotions and tilt of the mind disappear as we reconnect with the divine. And there are also wonderful influences that aid with this connection.

The Full Moon appears on July 23 at 10:37 pm. The Full Moon heightens emotion, intensity, and energy. In the garden, it brings fruition and germination, which occurs before the waning cycle. Moon is placed in Aquarius, the sign of electronics, New Age, and humanitarian efforts. (It is also about group evolution and the power of the individual within the group.)

Sun (life, light) is beautifully placed in Leo, a fire sign that rules the heart and increases self-expression, generosity, and creativity. Sun (life, light) conjuncts (close to) Mercury (mind, communication), which confers brilliant thoughts, and Moon (emotions, moods) opposes Mercury, meaning our moods can interfere with rapid, bright thoughts. With effort, we can overcome this aspect and use Sun conjunct Mercury to connect with the higher mind.

Sun and Mercury trine (harmonious) Neptune (illusion, mysticism), which opens the conscious to mystical inspiration and deeper understanding of spiritual meaning. Our lives and mind open to higher thought more easily. It heightens creativity and sensitivity. (Notice that it can be used to counter the aspect below of Sun in opposition to Saturn.)

Sun opposes Saturn (karma, limitation), so we may feel as though we are encumbered by our past or the heaviness of life. The people in our lives may become critical or demanding. Moon conjuncts (close to) Saturn (karma, limitation) relates to limitation in communication (and warmth) in our relationships with other people in our lives. The point is noticing where we need to change by perceiving life differently, having boundaries, and loving the self. It’s also about knowing we have the power to create change.

Sun (life) opposes Pluto (underworld, subconscious), so we may feel slightly obsessed with our desires or the way in which we want life to move and travel. Pluto (underworld, subconscious) tends to bring up problems and patterns from the past, which can feel like a crisis. (Send pink light to the part of you that experiences them. The aspect ends on There can be a strong desire to push, but it’s wiser to observe the feeling.

Mercury is placed in Gemini, an air sign that encourages good communication. It is amplified by its trine with Neptune, and it can aid in aligning with spiritual world. It increases our ability to communicate through videos, writing, and any other form of communication.

Venus (love) and Mars (action) oppose Jupiter (good fortune). Venus in opposition to Jupiter can bring good fortune and waves of happiness, and it can also create extravagance and selfishness. We’re more open to the possibility of good fortune if we stay centered and focus on connection. Mars (energy, male) opposes Jupiter, which can bring a desire for success and boost self-confidence. Again, the trick of receiving the benefit of the aspect lies in centering and remembering our quest of finding the path of the inner self. (We don’t make mistakes when we’re aligned and balanced.)

Mars opposes Pluto (subconscious, transformation), which creates a mass of energy, which can come into expression as anger, misunderstanding, or upset. It actually gives awareness of old feelings and energies, which may have been suppressed and/or unnoticed.

Planets in Retrograde

Jupiter (expansion), Saturn (limitation, structure), Neptune (mysticism, illusion), Pluto (underworld, transformation), and Chiron (wounded healer) are in retrograde. It’s more difficult to receive help from the planets when they are retrograde. (It’s a bit like a bad connection on a cell phone; the energy goes in and out.)

If we feel tired or unmotivated, the (five) retrograde planets may play a part in our feelings. Fortunately, all of our efforts count, and everyone can work on creating a few consistent efforts on the spiritual/physical plane. Sometimes, we have to push.

 

Summary

  • Obviously, the energies create pressure with hidden feelings, suppressed emotions about relationships, and self-esteem. It’s wise to journal about this and review feelings at a different date. For the moment, we can focus on the heart chakra and our connection with a greater force that gives unusual answers.
  • In the big picture, the planets ask for awareness of how we truly feel along with the growth experience of admitting we need new methods of communication—and perhaps the need to manifest a different reality.
  • There are many enlightening aspects in the chart such as Mercury trine Neptune, which connects with the higher mind, and the sparkling energy of Sun in Leo. We have ample energy to move through the challenges of the chart if we keep this in mind.
  • There are many opposing forces in the chart, and our emotions and thoughts may flow back forth between centered and out of alignment. It’s part of mastery, but it’s not easy. Nevertheless, we can do it.
  • Planetary retrogrades can feel heavy or cause tiredness. Make a list of what is needed for growth and a positive life. Make it simple and stay with it.

Full Pink Flower Moon

Image by Rahul Pandit

 

April’s full moon is a pink moon, which appears on April 26 at 11:32 ET. The term “pink moon” refers to celebrating the color of flowers and the emergence of spring. The chart brings both harmonious and challenging aspects; it brings potential for growth with personal aspirations and inner growth. It’s is a super moon, meaning that it’s very close to the earth. All full moon intensify energy and bring germination of life in the garden as well as heightened energy.
Sun is in Taurus is ruled by Venus, which encourages building and creating in physical form. The moon is in Scorpio, which relates to transformation, birth, and death. It is one of the most potent and fertile moons of the earth—a particularly good time to plant and work in the garden as well as making and executing new plans for life.
With seven planets in fixed signs, the chart emphasizes the balance between determination, stubbornness, and decisiveness. It’s wise to review limited thoughts and emotions—and discover new forms of communication and action. Moon in Scorpio adds the odd energy of the astral, the space between the physical and spiritual world. It heightens intuition and perception.

It is a chart with challenges, but part of spiritual growth involves excavating and reviewing life where our energies are stagnant or tend to move in subconscious patterns. Finding new methods of expression and action is part of the equation.

Sun (life), Mercury (thought, communication), Venus (love), and Uranus (sudden change/quantum field) are in Taurus, a fixed earth sign. Sun, Mercury, and Venus conjunct (close to) Uranus, which heightens Taurean qualities including stubbornness, desire for possessions, and an ability to ground and unite with the earth. (Every sign expresses dualistic qualities.) Sun conjunct Uranus encourages the desire to take a risk or move out of routine. Mercury conjunct Uranus increases sharpness of mind and gives unusual insights Venus conjunct Uranus can bring liberation from old patterns with loving relationships, art, and money; however, they are often uncomfortable.

Moon in Scorpio opposes (opposite position, 180 degrees) Venus (love, relationships) in Taurus. It expands the need for emotional support and can cause irritation in relationships. Moon trines (harmonious) Mars (action), supporting the connection between positive emotions and action. Moon trines Jupiter (good fortune), and this can bring harmonious feelings It also benefits generosity, openness, and self-expression. Moon opposes Uranus (sudden change) can bring mood changes and erratic emotions.

Mercury (thought, communications) is placed in Taurus, which can increase practical and pragmatic thoughts.  It conjuncts (close to) Venus (love), which can aid with expression of loving, tender thoughts or help with the expression of messages from the heart. Mercury also conjuncts Uranus (sudden change, quantum field), amplifying personal brilliance and unusual thoughts. It can also open the mind to higher realizations and insights.

Venus (love, partnership, romance, material possessions) is in Taurus, which encourages the expression of beauty, art, and union with the earth. Venus conjunct (close to) Uranus (sudden change) initiates new ideas and thoughts of greater freedom pertaining to expression of love, methods of making money, and releasing old patterns in life that limit the expression of the heart. (It can involve new boundaries, insights, and/or seeing potential for greater expansion in any of these areas.)

Mars (assertion, action) is placed in Cancer, which is a weak sign for the warrior planet. Cancer is a water sign that elicits emotional responses, and Mars prefers to march ahead without emotional baggage. It’s important to consider the role played by emotions when making decisions about future actions. Mars trines (harmonious) Jupiter (good fortune), and the aspect can bestow success, boldness, and positive outcomes. Mars squares (tension) Neptune (illusion/mysticism), which can cloud our vision with decision making and charting a clear course through life. However, aspects with Neptune are like rain or fog; they come and go without consistent influence.

Jupiter (good fortune, expansion) and Saturn (limitation, karma) remain in Aquarius, which promotes New Age concepts such as humanitarian issues, electronics and the power of the collective. Sun (life), Moon (emotions), Mercury (thought), and Venus (love) square Saturn (karma/structure).

Sun square Saturn (limitation) points to a series of tests and challenges related to our perception of life. Typically, this involves changes in behavior and greater discipline, but it’s also about aligning with the desires of the inner self as the sun represents life. Moon (emotion) square Saturn can refer to the need to overcome feelings of loneliness and rejection based on childhood events; it obviously affects relationships. Mercury (thought) square Saturn focuses on the need for work on the mental level, particularly as related to career. Venus (love) square Saturn tends to act as limiting force in relationships. We may not feel loved, but it’s important to work on expressing and developing the positive for a short period of time. (These aspects occur with inner planets, which move very quickly. The influence of the aspects is brief and will pass quickly.)

Uranus is the great awakener, and it plays an important role in the astrology of 2021. It urges us to wake up to our habits and thoughts that cause limitation. It is also an opportunity to put higher thoughts and philosophers into physical form. Uranus in Taurus concerns the creation of structures and form that align with the higher nature.

In summary, the chart is intense. There is an erratic energy within the chart, which is not a surprise. We can see it as reflected in the outer world. The chart delivers many energies with numerous expressions. It urges releasing past patterns, particularly those related to unhappiness, habit, and stubbornness. It asks us to open to the possibility of living in a new, better, and more creative way. It tells us that discipline, hard work, and perseverance are the right path to a life that is more aligned with the heart and our true nature. Through this alignment, we can take actions that move our lives forward in a positive sense.

Bright March Moon

The first full moon after the equinox determines the date of Easter, which comes on the first Sunday after the moon. The name is said to come from the goddess, Eostre, who rules spring and dawn. It’s a special moon, marking the arrival of a new season. In spring, the life force flows to the surface, appearing as flowers, leaves, and fertility.

In March 2020, we were limited in motion and action, but this chart alters the flow. The full moon appears on March 28 at 2:48 pm. With Sun in Aries, an active fire sign, and Moon in Libra, an air sign, it’s important to take inspired action–particularly actions that reflect creativity and inspired thought. The chart also offers healing on a deep love along with the potential for increased love and optimism. (The chart is quite different from one year ago. It’s encouraging—at least.) There are also contradictions and challenges, which are part of the duality of human experience.

One of the positive features of the chart is a Grand Trine, which brings good luck and harmony. Moon in Libra, Mars in Gemini, and Saturn in Aquarius form the big, beautiful trine, which can gift positive results, particularly when taking action. Air signs rule thought–the transmission of thought, which can include thinking and planning but also intuition, which is a way of thinking with the heart and mind. (The energies of a full moon generally include a seven day period–three days before the full moon, the day of the full moon, and three days after the moon.)

Sun is in Aries, a passionate, creative sign that loves action and motion. Moon is in Libra, which is ruled by Venus. (It’s a wonderful time to plant flowers, which will bloom luxuriously.) The energy of Libra includes relationships, beauty, balance, and creativity. The Sun and Moon bring a combination of love and creativity, which comes with the beauty of spring.

Sun (life, light) conjuncts Venus (love, relationships, beauty), bringing a sense of optimism and hope. It can also help with seeing the positive side of life and love for life. Sun conjuncts (close to) Chiron, the wounded healer, indicating an opportunity for healing the self.

Moon (emotions) opposes Venus (love, relationships), which can give the desire for love and affection along with a unfulfilled sensation. (This aspect is the opposite of Sun conjunct Venus, but there is much energy in the chart to support the joy of finding love for self, the universe, and life.) Moon trines Mars (action), which heightens emotions, passion, and charisma. Emotions may feel intense, but they are more easily expressed in a positive sense. Additionally, the trine gives the power to move through obstacles and difficulties with grace and understanding. Moon trines (harmonious) Saturn (limitation, structure), increasing practicality and stability with emotions.

Mercury is in Pisces, a water sign, that creates a mix of emotion and thought. Mercury (thought, communications) squares Mars (action), which means our thoughts can lead to inspired action or confuse the course of action. Thoughts can be clouded and distracting without the clarity needed to move in the direction of a goal. Mercury conjuncts (close to) Neptune (mysticism, illusion), which heightens creativity but also bring confusion. Rely on intuition to find the right answer.

Mars (action, male) in Gemini pairs intellect and passion. We can talk ourselves into action, become passionate about a specific thought, or think deeply about love and relationships. Mars trines (harmonious) Jupiter (expansion) and Saturn (limitation, karma). Mars trine Jupiter enlarges our opportunity for right action, increasing the likelihood of success. Mars trine Saturn lends a sense of structure, patience, and diligence to endeavors. Mars squares Neptune (limitation, illusion), which can cloud our consciousness and add confusion to the mix.

Jupiter (expansion, increase) and Saturn (limitation, karma) are in Aquarius, which said to bring forth more of the New Age. Saturn squares (tension) Uranus. This aspect could represent the awareness of our alignment—or lack of it—with the true characteristics of the Aquarian Age. Uranus (sudden change, quantum field) is in Taurus, which rules earth. Uranus always brings change of some sort, so we may continue to experience volcanic activity and similar earth alterations.

Sun (life) and Venus (love) conjunct Chiron, the wounded healer. All of these planets are placed in Aries, the first sign of the zodiac that represents the beginning of a cycle or a lesson. With Chiron in Aries, it may refer to a new way or zone of healing in this new time of transition. The wounded healer refers the part of the self that shuts down from injuries (emotional, physical, mental) in life. It can also denote how we hide our vulnerability. When we heal, we discover our gifts.

A Message from the Wolves

 

When the moon is full, I hear and feel the messages of the wolves. They speak of changes in the earth’s energy field, opening our hearts to the vibration of change, and manifesting in an unusual time. They share their secrets, which are profound and mysterious. Move into their presence and listen with your heart.

Here is their message.

The earth is changing, and she sends new messages and energy. You can accommodate the energy by opening to it and trusting that ups and downs of spirit are part of understanding how the rhythms of life are changing. (The patterns of energy, including ley lines and power points, are being altered by new waves of energy.)

What can you share about the earth changes?

The lines of energy are changing their patterns. They will become more accessible to those who are awakening and aligning with the inner self.

It has been centuries or more since the lines have changed. Many monuments and cities are built on these lines, but the lines are moving to support nature and to create a comeback of the life force on this planet. (We will not share their locations or how they are moving.)

People may experience them as waves of strange energy, a day of deep connection, or a feeling of lassitude because they are oscillating – just as your thoughts and feeling do on a regular basis.

Are there other ways that they affect us?

Yes. They will eventually support manifestation for those who know to work from the heart and search for those desires that are aligned with true growth.

NOW is a good time to begin the work. See the best and most beautiful earth that you can imagine. Add what you long for in this earthly existence. Is it clean water or clear skies—or a feeling of ease and connection for everyone? See it each time that you go out into world and add the creatures of the earth, flowers, and plants.

Is there more to share?

The changes sometimes take place rapidly. At other times, the process slows for a month or more, which is when you feel life is returning to “normal”. It will not return to normal. There are many, many other changes ahead, which may be difficult or exciting, depending on the placement of your consciousness.

Can you speak more about manifestation?

It is a way of accessing a larger light and creating the heart’s desire. It is not about accumulating things although it can be a part of a larger desire. It is more aligned with receiving light, feeling nature, and listening to the heart.

From this place, many good things come into being. The intuition and appreciation for life are amplified, and the world seems more beautiful. The view of life becomes more expansive. The mind becomes quiet and aligns with the heart. The body feels the earth, and emotions flow in a natural way.

By manifesting new and exciting ideas, you move out into the flow of universal energy. Your thoughts expand, and your emotions flow in new directions. You feel the currents and tuning of the earth.

You came to create thoughts and ideas that would make matter respond and flow into more beautiful forms. Flowers grow more beautifully when you admire their loveliness. Babies and animals respond to love. Trees move gently when you are aware of them—or when your thoughts are strong and harmonious. The earth feels your feet.

When you meditate, nature feels you. It responds to the unity of your focus. From this place, life flows in a different way. It has a sense of harmony; it brings more peace.

It also separates you from what doesn’t work well. Yet, it leads to other places and people, which reflect the unity within you. It is a passage in time—a ride on a river, which flows into wonderful scenes and adventures.

There are also those manifestations that take a long time to come into being? Why is this?

You may wonder why you don’t manifest your dreams, but the indigenous people spent hours or days as they worked on changing the weather, healing sickness, or finding special plants. It was a way of loving life, and they never questioned that their desires came from their hearts.

It takes time, it takes love, and it takes a special type of connection.

The earth is changing to help you in creating this connection and finding your direction. You are closer than you think, particularly if you are patient. Look inside to find another type of flow, an energy that is still, connected, and yet flowing.

It is the old flow, the old way from the first beginning. This energy teaches you to find out who you truly are and to discover the part of you, who once mastered holding thoughts and feelings that came into form.

There are many ways of manifesting and many ways of manifesting a desire, but the important part is to try, to make an effort, and to believe that it is possible—perhaps in a way that you’ve not known in this lifetime.

New Moon Forecast

Image by Josephine Wall

The stars are bright in the dark velvet sky at the time of the New Moon on February 11 when we reach a pause—a stillness in the cycle that rules seas, emotions, and the patterns of expansion/contraction on earth. At this time, we move into the void before moving into another cycle of lunar light and darkness.

Like branches on a tree or the sounds of birds in air, there is movement everywhere like winds blowing from several directions at once. Aspects with air influence the mind, thought, and communication, and they change and alter with Uranus’s influence—with its up and down oscillation, a ride on a Ferris wheel that can be uplifting or exhausting. (The feelings and outcome are affected by our consciousness, karma, and thoughts, which alter the turn of the wheel.)

With six planets in Aquarius, it’s an airy forecast for the New Moon. Air rules the mind, visuals, the conception and repetition of thought. The sign of Aquarius influences humanitarian issues, brilliant insights, the collective, and also fixed views of life. Many planets placed in Aquarius square Uranus (sudden change, quantum field) create tension and an erratic feeling, but Uranus also rules the higher mind, and it prefers shifts into expanded consciousness.

One of the most beneficial, astrological aspects—Venus (love) conjunct Jupiter (expansion)—is found in the chart. It acts as a reminder that any state of love—personal, universal, or the marvelous feeling, which comes with connection—can mitigate the strange Aquarian energy. Love brings us into present, it opens the heart, and it allows us to receive answers for the universe. Beyond this, it lifts our consciousness into a higher frequency where “reality” responds in a better way. It’s another way of connecting with the quantum field.

The squares between Sun (life), Moon (emotions), Mercury (communications), and Venus (love) and Mars (action, male) tend to exert pressure but fail to give clear answers and direction. It’s helpful to know the frustrating and semi-conscious frustration subside when the planets move into a different geometry in a few weeks. For the moment, it’s wise to prioritize actions that align with the soul and creating a better physical reality as they provide answers and energies that come from within the self—and don’t alternate with the “weather”. (Temporary upsets are normal at this time. The trick is finding the part of the self who remains calm and connected; answers tend to come in a place of stillness.)

Mercury remains in retrograde in Aquarius until February 21, adding to the mix of changing thoughts and subconscious projections. It can take our thoughts back into the past, reviving old patterns and forgotten feelings. Mercury retro can bring confusion, or it can lead to clarity that old perceptions are not necessarily true. Again, much of the challenge is about circumventing the chaos of the lower mind by tapping into universal messages and truths.

Mercury (thought), Venus (love), Jupiter (expansion), and Saturn (limitation) in Aquarius square Uranus in Taurus. Uranus is the place of the quantum field and sudden dynamic change. Squares create pressure, and these squares ask for plans for the future. They also ask for a clear gaze at the issues and thoughts that hold us back from our inner perfection and the expression of our gifts. The higher collective of humanity rises when we express new thoughts through our inner gifts. (Mars and Uranus are in earth signs, indicating that some of the answers may come from connection with the earth.)

Mars (action, male) trines Pluto (subconscious, transformation). Trines are harmonious, bringing energies together in a helpful, supportive way. The aspect heightens determination and courage; it builds intention. It teaches the right use of power and can create opportunities for expression and action.

Overall, it’s a time of confusing change. The mind tends to move from one topic to another with less focus than usual. Squares with Mars and Uranus cause tension and mild upset. Mercury retrograde adds confusion. However, Venus (love) conjunct Jupiter tells us to go into the heart and focus on love. Mars (action) trine Pluto gives courage and determination to stay on the path and seek right actions.

Tips

  1. The stellium–a group of planets in one sign such as the six planets in Aquarius—creates erratic thoughts, tension, and a focus on future. Thoughts may swing wildly from one subject and/or project to the next.
  2. Grounding helps. Spend time with the earth. Notice the sky, the shape of trees, and the movement of the clouds. Walk when possible.
  3. It’s important to stay focused, and Mars trine Pluto can give the strength and determination to move into our next phase of being.
  4. It’s okay to feel confused, lose things, or feel distracted. Meditate daily to achieve a clear mind.
  5. Whenever possible, stay in the heart. It’s one of the answers to the energy in the New Moon chart.

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.)
