Creating More Love

Image by Mary Cummings

 

Everyone wants more love. When you connect with the love “frequency”, you receive more of it. When you think about awakening, you automatically connect with energetic waves, which give the feeling of love. When you open your heart, you receive more light and love from the universe.

It’s interesting to realize how the placement of consciousness affects your experience. For example, when you think about light, you receive love. When you love yourself, it alters the flow of particles in your body and energy field. When you send love (pink light), it can alter relationships and bring healing. (Obviously, this type of work involves sincere feelings.)

  1. The ultimate source of light and love is the universe. It comes through meditation and contemplation—and by listening to the inner self. (You know when you find it because everything feels bright, beautiful, and still.)
  2. Finding universal love changes our perception of life. It reveals the inner self. You see, the inner self often differs from “who” you think you are. This part of the self feels life with a multiplicity of sensations. It speaks through intuition to lead you on your path.
  3. Finding the inner self means embarking on a passage of self-love. This involves boundaries, insights, loving the darkness within the self, and a willingness to see the truth. It also brings more love, compassion, and empathy. It’s a journey—not an immediate answer.
  4. The heart speaks more loudly as you step into love. It whispers about what you truly love, and it tells you about hurt and pain, which are sometimes hidden beneath the surface. You also become more vulnerable, and this means becoming brave.
  5. As you step into vulnerability, you begin to see how universal love heals. You can send light or love to others. You can hold a vision of healing for the world. You can send love, comfort, and compassion. You want to see abundance and success for others.
  6. Love teaches you about change, which may mean changing yourself. Perhaps, you learn to love your body or your life. Maybe, you speak more kindly or see the underlying light in everything. It leads to a shift into a higher state of being.
  7. As you learn more about love, you accept the human state of duality. You know the state of love shifts from one duality into another. Life provides the opportunity to shift sadness into happiness or loneliness to love, but you learn to rely on the beauty of your heart to bring you back into center–where the universe awaits.

NOTE: Everyone has moments of “not” feeling love. This can be useful if you are willing to see these dark places and moments as points, which offer the potential for change and growth. (Accept this as the part of you that longs for change, and send light to the feelings. Assume you have the ability to change the circumstances, thoughts, and feelings, which are associated with this state.)

Old Wounds

It’s important to know you lose energy around old wounds. If you’re honest, you usually have the same feelings when we’re depressed, angry, or upset. The old emotions and thought patterns typically elicit reactions from others. It’s part of a cycle, which occurs when your energy is low or upset.

To break the cycle, it’s helpful to notice where and how you lose energy. There’s usually a consistent pattern with energy and problems with other people. By noticing your reactions, you change them. (When you react in a different way, people respond in new ways.) As you master the reactions, you will gain energy. With more energy, it’s easier to create positive visualizations, habits, and patterns.

You’re not changing other people. You’re changing how you participate with reality and react to a specific set of stimuli. By “seeing” it differently, “reality” flows into a higher form.

The Future of Love

As the planet increases in frequency and collective consciousness grows in the direction of enlightenment, the definition of love will probably shift.

Love from the heart space is not like any other type of love. It brings a complete connection, a higher vibration that brings unity with a dialog of spirit because we know exactly how the other person feels. Real love is an intuitive language, which needs words only to shape the color of thoughts and emotions.

Sometimes, the world feels strange

 

Why does everything feel strange?

Everything feels strange because we are moving through a dispensation of light, which will last another 5-10 years. We’re between the Age of Pisces and the Age of Aquarius when light rains down on the planet—and the Precession of Ages, a 26,000 year cycle.

Uranus is square Pluto, and Earth is moving on her axis. It’s a time of group awakening. In past ages, individuals such as Christ or Buddha carried the light of enlightenment for the entire planet. This is a group effort, and many people are awakening on the planet. (It’s not enough to awaken. We have to do something with that energy!) In the Age of Pisces, the experience of unconditional love was the way of moving into Universal Light, In the Age of Aquarius, we see the inner self in everyone. But we also have to look at their character, energy, and way of life to discover if they are part of our endeavor. In other words, love the light but act in a discriminating manner with choices for friends.

The group initiative means we feel everyone else. On certain days, we are together in the light. When we’re not aligned with the inner self, we can feel everyone else’s shift. We also feel mass consciousness at the grocery store, movies, or mall. (We consistently experience the oscillation between light and darkness.)

One day, I feel fine. The next day, I feel terrible, tired, or emotional. What’s causing this?

There’s definitely an unsettled feeling. Oddly, we may feel it more when we’re very connected. Our inner awareness and intuition bring heightened awareness of change.

Earth is raising her frequency and pivoting between several physical points on her axis. (No, it’s not a polar shift.) The old points of alignment feel good to our bodies. The new points of alignment bring in an entirely different energy. The shift of the earth causes changes in the cycle of life. The days are longer, and the shadows look different. Everything is growing at an accelerated rate. There are significant changes with animals and birds.

The earth exudes a rhythm, which we feel physically and emotionally. The rhythm is interrupted as the earth rocks on her axis. Hypothetically, the motion occurs to shake up old patterns and help in raising our vibration. (Be patient. Everyone is adjusting.)

The new energy can feel exhilarating or exhausting. It depends on what we’re doing, the placement of our consciousness, and our overall frequency. The energy also brings awareness of health issues, emotional/mental patterns for clearing.

On the positive side, it’s much easier to manifest when “material” reality is unstable. Energy flows more easily and adapts to new forms. The important part is taking time to sit, center, and focus on visualization. (It also helps to walk and garden.) And there are also moments of feeling divinely connected.

Are there other reasons for feeling weird?

Yes. Uranus is square Pluto until March 2019 when it returns to Taurus, an earth sign. Chiron (wounded healer) moves back into Aries in February. Currently, we are re-experiencing the energies between 2012-2018.  Uranus in Aries (new beginnings, anger, passion + planet of sudden and spiritual change) is square Pluto (resources, subconscious, unknown darkness, transformation) in Capricorn. It’s a difficult square, and it can sometimes bring up more than we think is bearable. (We’ll get through it.)

Uranus exudes awakening, and Pluto reveals hidden truths, shadows, and subconscious emotions/thoughts. We’re dealing with our darkness and light—and seeing more about the political, economic world. In the big picture, it helps in making decisions to create a better world.

NOTE: Recent astrological charts presented aspects to help in becoming aware of karma as well as mystical, healing aspect that require opening to love. It’s wonderful, but it’s not always easy!

What can I do about it?

Hang on for the ride. Accept the ups and downs. Nurture yourself on tired days and achieve on good days. Understand the rhythms of the energy. Nothing lasts forever; it changes from day to day.

Check in with your inner self. Ask if today is a good day for errands, emails, new clients, or deep talks. Make the physical body stronger and spend time observing the flow of nature. Feel your flow. Trust that we’re moving into a time of greater love. (Don’t worry about the people who don’t feel the fluctuations or step into awakening. Stay centered and trust your inner self.)

The Magic of Manifestation

 

Image by Susan Boulet

 

  1. Manifestation is a natural development of meditation. As you become attuned to your inner self, it’s natural to seek expansion of this inner state. Creation of new events, aspects of life, and inner development come from focusing on a specific area of life while seeing, feeling, and experiencing it in a new way. You evolve and expand by creating more of the same inner state in areas of your life where energy and understanding are lacking.
  2. Growth involves expansion and experimentation. Typically, some of your intuitions, thoughts, and feelings are correct in a specific area of life. By observing, you learn how to listen, visualize, think, and feel more accurately. You learn to tap into the parts of life, which are more aligned with the inner self. (For example, your inner self does not think fearful thoughts about the world throughout the day. It doesn’t feel angry about your relationships. It might encourage you to develop some aspect of your life and pay attention to your personal insights. But it doesn’t project and develop negativity.)
  3. Manifestation involves duality. It involves releasing the not-self, which created the current situation, and nourishing the true self, which creates a new “reality.” The current physical self unites with inner self, who receives direction from the universe. By listening and acting intuitively, progress is made.
  4. It’s helpful to bless the “good” in life while continuing to hold the visual or feeling of the desire. In this way, you honor both worlds. It’s also useful to note any progress, persistence, or the smallest motions toward your goal. Accept and bless all positive hints and signs.
  5. Let your heart guide you. It’s how you learn to hear to become intuitive. Take small risks, step into expansion, and learn the process of stop and go (flow.) Part of manifestation involves discovery through learning about your correct/incorrect intuitions, actions, and the inner and outer self. The outer self (ego) is programmed by life. It’s the cause of resistance and sabotage. The inner self teaches about alignment with the universe. (It’s easy to confuse the two voices, but the work of manifestation teaches discernment.) Every manifestation and/or heart’s desire leads to more understanding of the inner self.
  6. Your manifestation is correct when it leads you into generosity, kindness, and love. (If you’re feeling jealous, competitive, or wanting too much, you’re on the wrong path.) The right manifestation teaches letting go of negative thoughts and feelings. It doesn’t mean you don’t see the truth. It means you react and judge less.
  7. This step may seem self-explanatory, but manifestation is like everything in your life. You have to make up your mind to do it, and your efforts must remain consistent. The time will come when you don’t want to do it, or you don’t think it works. It may also feel like too much effort when your world is staying in a perfect place or falling apart. It’s weird, but that’s when you need it most. (There are also times when you may need a coach or someone who believes in your ability to stay with the process.)
  8. If you stay with the work, you will evolve. Your manifestation may take longer than you think. It may come in an entirely different form, or it may perfectly reflect your desire. Regardless, you will have developed a stronger connection with the inner self, learned the art of altering thoughts and emotions, and expanded your intuitive abilities. More importantly, you stepped into the incredible threshold where the universe and your consciousness meet.

Mastering Emotion

Image by Amanda Clark

Emotion is one of the tests of mastery, Represented by water, emotion moves in waves. It responds to our thoughts, sensations, and encounters. It peaks and ebbs in a series of highs and lows. It can come from intuition, an old pattern, or a misinterpretation.  It can also come as a truth, which requires the light of awareness.

1) Love, as experienced in the heart, is the highest emotion. When we feel love in the heart space, we usually feel connected and centered—free from the oscillations of life. It’s helpful to cultivate this feeling so we can tap into the heart space when needed. (Imagine feeling pink light in the center of the chest and back. Imagine receiving more light in this space.)

2) Emotions are not always real. Sometimes, we pick up on other people’s emotions or projections. For example, it’s easy to feel angry or afraid if we spend time around someone with a lower vibration. We also tend to feel confused if we “read” deception or an untruth in another person’s energy field. We feel the truth but can’t identify it. (It’s helpful to ask for clarity.)
3) Emotions can also occur as a habitual response. It’s a good practice to ask if we always feel afraid or insecure around particular experiences. If so, we can send light to the feeling and imagine another outcome.

4) Emotions are contagious on the lowest and highest levels. We can feel uplifted in the highest sense or experience panic in a movie theater. We share emotion unless we make an effort to raise our vibration above the frequency of others. Everyone feels the projections of other people. When we are aware of this, we can disconnect and rely on our spiritual practice.

5) It’s important to accept the ebb and flow of our emotional life. We can learn what activates patterns, what calms them, and how to change our focus. For example, exercise, meditation, or a good book can soothe our mood. (It’s important to know that many people activate negative emotions. Think twice before discussing problems with friends.)

6) It’s helpful to recall positive emotions such as courage, perseverance, or joy. When we recall a happy emotion, we essentially “intend” it into our lives. It’s useful to project the opposite emotion of any unhappy state. If we truly connect with it over time, we experience more of it. (Reality follows the lens of our attention.)

7) We are only beginning to learn how to express our emotions constructively in life. (Watch a few movies or the news if you disagree.) When we become more accomplished, we’ll learn how to send waves of peace, love, and joy–and see our lives move into a place of ease and happiness. In the meanwhile, we can observe, focus on positive emotions, and send good energy to our emotional future.

A Time of Awakening

 

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.

Eight Books for Soulful Work

Image by Kerry Miller

 

Reading books about spirituality can bring transformation. It can be particularly useful to read before sleeping and to ask for dreams to help interpret/understand the material.
  1. The first book is part of a promotion, and it has a wonderful title, Relationship Magic – Waking up Together. Author Guy Finley writes about the magic of moving beyond limitation in relationships through new dialog and realizations. (Obviously, the book is for couples seeking growth.) Several gifts are offered with his release/promotion date (today) Click here to access    (Full disclosure: I am not an affiliate. I read only one chapter, but I was impressed with his techniques, which offer the possibility of altering emotions and expanding communication.)
  2. Grandmothers Counsel the World  by Carol Schaefer contains profound imagery and thoughts from the grandmothers of many indigenous societies and their view of life. It emphasizes our relationship with nature, the heartbeat of the earth, and the value of a slower life from a feminine perspective.
  3. The Afterlife of Billy Fingers by Annie Kagan was released a few years ago, and it remains one of the best descriptions of after life experience. Kagan was contacted by her brother after his death and transcribed her perceptions and his “truths”. The book also has lovely words about lessons on earth – and how they count more than we think.
  4. Veronika Decides to Dieby Paulo Coelho relates the story of a young woman who thinks she has nothing left in life. Veronika attempts suicide, finds herself in a mental ward, and discovers love and beauty of life. The book is filled with tales of characters and exquisite descriptions. In the end, it’s an uplifting and spiritual book. (Coelho hints that the book is based partially on personal experience.)
  5. The Intention Experiment by Lynne McTaggert is a wonderful example of the author’s ability to combine scientific and New Age information in an interesting format. The Intention Experiment explores the idea of how thoughts can be used to change our lives and the world.
  6. The War of Artby Steven Pressfield presents an artistic (and very honest) perspective of how to move through blocks and limitations, using the writer’s experience as a guide. It’s a tiny book but full of amazing insights.
  7. Silent Power by Stuart Wilde tells how to accumulate spiritual power and energy through observation. It also tells how to develop intuitive abilities through a state of stillness. It’s a short, simple, and effective book.
  8. Working with Angels, Fairies, and Nature Spirits by William Bloom is a fabulous read for those who want to contact elementals and/or receive help from nature and plants. The book contains many types of exercises along with detailed guidance.

Overcoming Darkness with Light

 

Sometimes, the world seems dark and strange. It’s difficult not to feel specific world events or significant weather, but it’s important to raise our vibration–if we want things to change in a positive sense.

 Below are a few of my favorite techniques. These tips and techniques are helpful in raising our vibration and seeing the goodness in the world. By raising our vibration, we move back into peace and harmony, which pulls in the frequency of positive change.

  1. Affirm the power of love and have faith in the universe. Believing in the power of love and light is part of utilizing it. (The “feeling” and faith are part of sending light. Visualization and connection are also important.)
  2. Send light and love to the geographical location of any disturbance. Send light to everyone who is involved in the problem. Imagine love and light changing and raising the energy of the location.
  3. Focus on peace. We can radiate it through ourselves–and out into the world. Make a strong choice about placement of consciousness. Encourage others to do the same.
  4. See the opposite of a current situation. See peace instead of violence.  See a safe and beautiful world. (Take 5 or 10 minutes to “see” this clearly.)
  5. Believe in the power of spiritual work. Meditating, thinking positive thoughts, and helping others do a great deal in creating a better world. The work helps, and the desired change is coming.
  6. Avoid reactive people. It’s impossible to observe when people strongly express their opinion. Stay neutral and work from a place of love. Observe and detach from the media. (We’re leaving the time of Kali Yuga when negative vibrations were attractive and inviting. The media makes life seem worse by focusing on negativity. Choose to be different and stay focused on the positive.)
  7. KNOW there is a great deal of love on this planet. We may not always see it, but love and light are the underlying fabric of matter. And the light is growing. (A good intuitive can “see” it.)

Specific Tips

  • Weather. It’s best to work with severe weather by thinking about the geographical area and sending love (pink light) to loved ones and the beauty of the location. Imagine love like a soft, pink cloud, covering and protecting everything. (Please don’t try to move the storm.)
  • People When experiencing irritation, disagreement, or negative energy with a loved one or friend, pull back from the situation. Refrain from thoughts identifying the other person as “wrong”. See a solution strongly and surrender the situation to the universe. (Whenever possible, do not dwell on negative thoughts and feelings about the other person. Think about their strengths and positive skills.) It can take a few weeks for the energy to change, but a different, calmer feeling should come in a few days. (Don’t share opinions while the energy is changing!)
  • More People. Learn to detect the energetics of a person, which goes beyond actions and words. Notice wishes for changes in their behavior and pull personal desires back. Gently project happiness for the person.
  • Social Media New, and Politics. Allow other people to have judgments. Don’t correct them. Make the experience about remaining neutral and positing positive information.When we remain neutral, the person will seek out someone who strongly agrees or disagrees. In general, negative people want negative energy. Don’t play the game. (Also, people learn from mistakes, and we are not their teachers – unless they ask.)
  • Pause. Situations often change when we don’t react, talk, or think about them. Pausing returns us to the inner self where unusual and happy answers are discovered. When in this quiet place, reflect on the beauty of the inner self and the physical world.

Full Blood Moon and Lunar Eclipse

The Full Blood (Red) Moon appears on Friday, July 27 with the longest lunar eclipse of the 21st century. The Full Moon Eclipse is a powerhouse, and it can ignite emotions and erratic actions. It can also act as a catalyst for realizing the potential and beauty of the inner self. If we choose, the eclipse can act as a door into self-awareness and development of spiritual gifts. (Astrology consistently presents equations of energy, which affect emotion and reaction; however, the placement of the consciousness is the determining factor in the outcome.)
Sun (life) is in Leo, increasing passion, drama, and the desire to live through the heart. It brings vitality, courage, and creativity into life. Moon (mother, emotions) is placed in Aquarius, the air sign that rules group endeavors, individuality, and mentality. The Moon is almost exactly conjunct Mars, and the degrees of their placement refer to “A Council of Ancestors” (Moon), indicating guidance from souls who walked the same path, and “A Hindu Healer Glows with Mystic Power” (Mars), which may hint at the best way of using our energy.
Mars (energy, male, assertion) is at its brightest since 2003, and it’s close to the earth. Mars’ aspects with Jupiter and Uranus intensify its power – and our energy. Mars is currently in a retrograde position, but its energy can feel like running in place or living in hyper-drive without a clear focus.
Mercury (communications) moves into retrograde on July 26, and it slows progression of many aspects of life. Mercury (communications) in Leo (fire) is passionate and dramatic. In retrograde, it may mean our passions need tempering by focusing on the heart – and questioning their alignment with the inner self. Mercury’s retro position asks for rest, relaxation, and review of life. It slows travel and communications.
Venus in Virgo can be critical or wise. But Venus’ influence is mainly positive with a sextile with Jupiter (good fortune), meaning love is aligned with expansion and growth. Venus and Neptune are opposed, which can result in difficulty discerning illusion and reality –specifically within relationships. (This aspect also heightens our sense of beauty.) Venus (love, feminine) trines Pluto (underworld, transformation), adding power and energy to the aspects of life that we love.

Squares

Squares cause tension between two energies. The tension can sometimes push us into finding new methods and ways of dealing with life. They can also feel frustrating. It’s helpful to know we do have the power to transcend them. (Besides, we are always tested before moving into the next level of consciousness, which the eclipse definitely offers.)

Sun (life), Moon (emotions), Mercury (communications), and Mars (action) square Jupiter, the planet of good fortune and expansion. These squares are in fixed signs, possibly reflecting stubbornness, lack of flexibility, and changes that lead to growth. Sun square Jupiter may reveal how our vision of life requires expansion and growth. Moon (emotions) square Jupiter draws old emotions and limitations of the past to the surface and their conflict with a need for growth. Mercury (communications) square Jupiter can cause procrastination and a sense of laziness.

Mars (action) square Jupiter gives enthusiasm, energy, and zest for life, but Jupiter can make the passion excessive and impulsive.Sun (life), Moon (emotions) and Mars (action, male, passion) square Uranus, the planet of unpredictability and awakening. Sun square Uranus increases the need for personal freedom and the feeling of being different or not fitting into groups. Moon square Uranus can cause unpredictable, rapid changing emotions, making it difficult to focus and complete tasks. Mars square Uranus denotes creative, erratic, and passionate energy that can be channeled or explosive.

Jupiter (expansion) trines Neptune (illusion, mysticism) with a continuance of a hopeful, light and optimistic feeling, which has been helpful during the summer months. Saturn (limitation, karma) trines Uranus (New Age, awakening) bestows a positive intermingling of concepts of the Piscean and Aquarian Age.

Positive aspects with Chiron (the wounded healer) include a trine with Sun, making life and healing align, and sextiles with Moon (emotions) and Mars (action). Saturn (limitation, karma) squares Chiron, indicating the need to find the source of our limitations and clear them with active consciousness.

Notes:

  • Awakened people (like you) may feel tension, but you should be capable of dealing with the energies throughout the weekend. However, not everyone is like you. The world may present chaotic actions and energies, but you know how to change energy so send peaceful vibrations into the space around you and out into the world (Think of peace as beautiful blue-green waves that bring calm and love.)
  • The present moment (and throughout the week) is NOT time for acting on repressed feelings, talking to others about unfair behavior, or beginning a new project. (Write letters and emails that you never send.) With many planets in retrograde, take time to meditate on the beauty of your desires – and the opportunity to do so. After all, it’s a gift.
  • Mercury is retrograde, limiting travel and mental expansion. Mercury retro tends to slow communications, travel, computers, and electronics. It also tends to cause confusion. It’s a time to rest, review, reflect, and remain consistent with spiritual practices.
  • Squares with Jupiter (good fortune, expansion) can limit the outcome of best efforts and cause frustration. Sun (life, self), Moon (emotions), and Mars (action, masculine) square Uranus (sudden change, awakening), which may prompt eccentric or sudden action. It’s far wiser to delay the action and go within. Let the universe ease waves of pressure and discontent by listening to the subtle voice of the inner self.
  • The Lunar Eclipse presents an opportunity to travel more deeply into the inner self. Think of it as walking into the light and reconstructing life into a higher form. Meditation and reflection are needed to accomplish this task, but the universe is sending light to help us on the path.

 

Sabian Symbols, based on Lynda Hill’s book and work

Sun is on Leo 5, “Rock Formations Towering over a Deep Canyon.” Rock formations could refer to structures of structures of the past or the time element of the planet. Either way, one has to wait and standstill while waiting for help, or climb down into the chasm and/or void.

In the spiritual world, this is known as taking a leap into the unknown, a way of letting go of safe structures and leaning on faith. (On the positive, it can also refer to the power needed to descend into the unknown.)

Moon is on Aquarius 5, “A Council of Ancestors Has Been Called to Guide a Man.” The symbol could refer to wise individuals who found truth and direction in another time – or it could speak of the necessity of following guidance from times past. On another level, it can refer to the strength of genetic ancestors, which lies in our DNA, and may act as a supportive force. (Guides also exist on a purely spiritual level.)

Mercury is on Leo 24, “Totally Concentrated upon Spiritual Attainment, A Yogi is Sitting in a State of Neglect.” The symbol calls attention to the importance of focus and listening to the inner self for true attainment. It also asks for balance between the spiritual and physical worlds.

Venus sits on Virgo 20, “A Caravan of Cars Headed for the Promised Land.” Venus offers substantial support in this chart, indicating help from the universe when we move into a state of love. The caravan of cars relates to the concept of the availability of higher dimensions for those who are spiritually aligned.

Mars is retrograde on Aquarius 4, “A Hindu Healer Glows with a Mystic Power”. This symbol refers to action on the inner as opposed to outer level. The “glow” comes from the light within. At some point, all seekers discover that the light of universe is a wonderful balm, which heals problems in the outer world.

Jupiter is on Scorpio 14, “Telephone Linesman at Work Installing New Connections”. It’s a wonderful symbol that suggests new ways of connecting intuitively and developing communications, which come from the heart.
