Ascension through Sacred Geometry


Article originally appeared in, all rights reserved by author

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Julia: What about emotional energy?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Julia: Do you have any thoughts in closing?

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

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

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

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

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

Ascension: Heaven on Earth

Image by Griffin Lambert


In the past, we thought of ascension in terms of leaving the Earth to enter a higher plane of being or reaching “heaven.” But many people feel that ascension in our time is really about creating Heaven on Earth, right here and now.

Author and spiritual consultant Jean Adrienne is one who believes and teaches the Heaven o -Earth interpretation. She also feels that this is going to involve massive alterations in our earthly DNA and in our chakra system — changes that only became possible when we began to dream this dream. Why would we choose to stay here on Earth?

From the standpoint of the Higher Self, the answer is a no-brainer. “Alchemy,” says Jean, “teaches that every soul in the Universe, no matter how advanced, envies us for having a body.”

Julia: Let’s start by talking about what you mean by the word “ascension.”

 Jean: The actual definition of the word, according to Webster’s dictionary, is simply “moving from one level to another.” The historical definition from a spiritual/religious standpoint has been that we die and go to heaven, but by definition, ascension of consciousness would simply mean moving from one level of consciousness to another.

So, if we agree that we have been living in Third Dimensional consciousness for a number of years, then ascension could mean moving to the fifth level or ninth level of consciousness. We’ve been given a preconceived notion that it is necessary to leave our bodies behind in order to travel to this better place. But ascension can take place on the physical plane just by raising the consciousness. We can choose to stay in the physical body and ascend.

Ascension doesn’t necessarily mean that people who choose not to ascend will disappear from our experience. It’s possible that they will simply have a different experience. And those who want to ascend without a body can possibly have that experience, too.

However it goes, there will be two different realties. And maybe we’ll reach a point in the future where both realities can co-exist, but where we don’t actually see each other. Perhaps one plane will be invisible to the other. But I think how it turns out for each one of us is an individual choice — everyone will have to choose to do whatever they do. Because this is a planet of free choice. We chose to come here and experience life in a body because we could have body experiences, and these are not available elsewhere.

Alchemy teaches that every soul in the Universe, no matter how advanced, envies us for having a body. There are things one can do in a body — such as having certain physical experiences — that are not possible without one.

Julia: If we are in the Fifth Dimension now, or moving into the Fifth Dimension, what are some of the changes that will be taking place?

Jean: The beginning of this move from one state of consciousness to another state of consciousness is to admit to ourselves the importance of having a body, and then reclaim the aspects of the physical body that we surrendered in our quest for spirituality. We have tried to lighten ourselves for some time. This has been the spiritual teaching: to lighten up, to perhaps even to leave the body by forsaking certain foods or habits.

The truth is that we are spiritual beings having a physical experience. We need to claim this and fully activate and feel this physical experience. There is truly no other way to live in the present. If we can’t live in the present, then we can’t live in the heart space or become enlightened. And if we are totally connected between the physical and spiritual, then the present is the only experience we will have. If this connection is complete, we will experience nothing but harmony and growth.

Julia: For those who are just discovering ascension in a body — who have not had intuitive awareness of it in the past — what advice can you give?

Jean: It’s all about intention. The first thing that needs to happen is that one needs to decide to be open and receive this information. As soon as this happens, the rest is history, and it will happen. The more one walks in surrender, the more rapidly it will happen.

Julia: Will changes actually occur in the DNA, as so many are saying?

Jean: I believe so. I think that in order for ascension to take place in the human form, the body must be upgraded to hold a higher vibration. This process can be started by activating additional strands of DNA — the spiritual DNA. It is thought that we originally had more than the two strands of DNA found in our bodies today.

If additional strands are activated, we awaken new abilities, gifts, and powers that have been held dormant. If you unwind the double DNA helix, you can see that it looks like a ladder. Perhaps our DNA could be a ladder into the Fifth Dimension. There are people who perform DNA activation in which they activate the twelve strands of DNA. But this twelve-strand process may just be a beginning, because it is my feeling that there are more strands of DNA even than that. I suspect there are thirty-six strands of DNA. I suspect that the DNA paradigm changed when many of us realized that it was possible for us to ascend in the physical body, and that the DNA strands are the key to ascension. Certainly, everything that we are physically is encoded in the DNA.

We have physical DNA in our cells, and spiritual DNA that is in our energy field. These two energies have to be connected, just as the left and right hemispheres of the brain must become integrated and balanced as we move into the Fifth Dimension. All of our inner knowledge is stored in the DNA. The memory of everything “that is” is encoded in the DNA. When we become authentic, we no longer search outside ourselves for “true knowledge.” It is within us.

I suspect this true knowledge is stored within the DNA, and that as we ascend, more strands will be activated so that we can to access more of our inner, hidden knowledge.

Julia: I understand you also believe that changes in the chakras are part of the ascension process. How does that work?

Jean: I believe we need to move our attention from our higher chakras to the Root and Sacral chakras. This is the place where we begin manifesting idea into form. For years, we were told to focus on the Third Eye and Crown chakras. But I think we have to focus on the first and second chakras now, to bring creation into form — to bring Heaven to Earth.

I’m seeing many people, even vegans, are being called to eat meat, or at least root vegetables, just in order to ground themselves back in the body. And I think that as we move into this grounding, into the physical body and activation of the DNA, there will be additional chakras. If there are twelve strands of DNA, it is only logical to assume that there are twelve chakras that relate to this. And if there are thirty-six strands of DNA, then there may be thirty-six chakras.

The first chakra that becomes apparent through the process of ascension is the high heart or thymus chakra. This chakra has started opening for many people, and they often experience the opening as the feeling of having a heart attack. I see this chakra as lime green. Some people see it as aqua. There is also a new chakra right above the lip. It can be seen from the back of the head at the occiput. It’s called the ascension chakra. Other chakras may be near the spleen, and other chakras are in the energy field but haven’t come in yet. The Soul Star chakra is about eighteen inches above the Crown, and there is another chakra above that one. We don’t know the location of all of the new chakras. This is exciting, and we’ll find out more as we move through the ascension process.

A whole new paradigm for the physical body is being created. We are moving from a body that is controlled by the immune system to a body that is controlled or activated by the heart. We are reacting to emotions when we are in the immune system, but when we are in the high heart chakra we are connected to our inner knowing.

We thought before that we lived in a world run by forces external to ourselves. But the ascension movement is all about a world that’s governed by the high heart.

Julia: I know that many people are having strong physical experiences right now. How does this new paradigm affect our health?

Jean: It is possible to create more perfect health through this synthesis of the body and soul that I talked about before. But it will also be possible to create anomalies of health, if this is what the person chooses to experience in order to learn. It is all about choosing our reality with each moment that passes.

Julia: How does the Crystal Grid relate to ascension?

Jean: None of this could begin to happen until the Crystal Grid was in place. Prior to its establishment, we may have had to leave the physical plane in order to ascend. There are other grids besides the Crystal Grid. There is an Axiatonal Grid that connects the body to the earth’s meridians, to the Crystal Grid, and to the Universal Grid above that.

We are taking on a new vibratory level as we connect to the Crystal Grid. It’s similar to power stations, or like moving from dial-up on the Internet to cable and DSL. We are using the vibratory frequencies at a different pace. The hertz vibration of the body is absolutely off the chart today. Two or three years ago, the average human vibrated at somewhere around 68 hertz. Now it’s not unusual for me to find someone who vibrates at five million hertz!

There is another new paradigm that is open to a lot of conscious creation, one we can’t even perceive, radically different from anything that’s been written about the human species or that we have experienced. It’s hard for us to get out of the box and release enough control to open ourselves to this new paradigm.

Seeing the new paradigm only happens when we release control. We can do that by identifying how control operates in our life. Control is operating any time things don’t seem easy, peaceful, and harmonious. As soon as our world starts to get testy, we can rest assured that we are exerting our will at some level. These uncomfortable emotions are really a signal that we are not tapping into our intuitive knowledge.

When the emotions occur, I tell myself that I am having a Mortal Moment. And the only thing we can do in a Mortal Moment is nothing! Make no decisions, make no choices — because decisions and choices made during Mortal Moments cannot be for our highest and best good. Consider that the Universal law of attraction means that our thoughts and vibrations essentially choose the systems and events that will operate around us. Another way of saying this is, “Our experience of the world is the outcome of our emotions and thoughtforms.” When we relinquish control, everything falls into place. It’s heaven on earth.

The new paradigm is like a new channel on television, and we lose our reception to the channel whenever we go into control. The only thing we can do is take a deep breath, surrender to our higher self, and just let go.

Julia: If one decides to move into the process of ascension, are there important steps to take or changes we need to make in our consciousness?

Jean: We have to learn to let go of fear. We have to examine our thoughts constantly. Thoughts and emotions create, and we can’t give up our responsibility for creating by not paying attention to what we are thinking and feeling.

There are no victims in the Fifth Dimension. Anything that’s uncomfortable is our own creation. To change it, we have to create something new and better in its place, but we can only do that by taking responsibility for our thoughts and emotions.

We have to give up our base of Third-Dimensional fear. We have to move away from judging anything as either bad or good. Whenever we have any kind of judgment, we are opening ourselves to a lower vibration. It’s truly a matter of knowing that everything is, and everything is as it should be in this moment. We must learn to live, moment by moment, in the now.

As you truly ascend, you remember who you really are. You remember that you are the Creator. At this point, it’s important to put your attention on creating — creating your vision of Heaven on Earth. Begin to create what you want your reality to look like, as best you can within the old Third-Dimensional paradigm. Then — let go! Say, “My reality is this or something better.” You are turning it over to your Higher Self and allowing your Higher Self to work with the vision.

We can create more wonder than we can possibly imagine. We are learning to become adept at this through the ascension process. We should create as much as we can, especially lots of joy and happiness. Remember, we can create joy and happiness. We can have a full cup. And when we have received a full cup, we must remember to give generously so that we can continue to receive generously.

Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse



On Friday, November 19, the full moon appears, and it’s also the time of a lunar eclipse. Think of an eclipse like throwing a breaker box on and off. There’s an absence of light between the seconds of closing and opening the electrical channel. It’s slightly disruptive, but it’s basically a reset at a particular point in time and space. At some point during the eclipse, the moon will turn red and become a Blood Moon. (A Red Moon simply means good, dry weather to farmers.)

The lunar eclipse begins at 1 am ET and extends to 7 am ET. It’s the longest eclipse since the 15th century.  Obviously, an eclipse of this length has an effect on consciousness, and the focus is on tuning into the Moon in Taurus, which sits in an exalted position.

The exalted Moon in Taurus can bring beauty, calm, harmony, and abundance. Sun is in Scorpio, the passionate water sign, and Moon is in Taurus, an earth sign. Water and earth are fertile in this placement and tend to supplement growth. Sun in Scorpio asks us to look beneath the surface to rewrite deep patterns and evoke change.

Perhaps, it’s about altering our limiting beliefs into more centered New Age concepts that focus on the abundance and beauty of life. Both Sun and Moon are in fixed signs, which help with alignment with a positive belief or staying in a limited patterns and not perceiving a larger truth.

With every chart, there’s a difficulty or challenge, particularly in the current cosmic shift.  In the full moon chart, there is a T-square, which exerts pressure on life, emotions, and the exaggeration that can be caused by Jupiter. Sun (life), Moon (emotions), and Mercury (communications) are square (tension, pressure) Jupiter (good fortune).

When planets are in tense aspects with Jupiter, we tend to move into overconfidence, optimism, and overspending. In alchemy, we balance planetary aspects with the opposite type of energy such as moderation and discipline—or by moving into our lower energy and by finding and healing its source.

Sun, Mercury (mind), and Mars (action) trine Neptune (mysticism, idealism), allowing insights into the universe while opening our hearts to higher emotion. Venus (love) trines Uranus, which may help with visualization and positive overall energy.

Mercury (mind, communications) in Scorpio asks for discovery of emotional reactions and habits that lead to limiting patterns of thought. When we uncover old beliefs, we find freedom and new methods of communication.

Venus (love, beauty, material wealth) in Capricorn, the sign representing climbing the mountain of success—whether the climb to success or spiritual elation. In this rocky scenario, love can feel cooler than usual. Venus will stay in Capricorn for four months, illuminating the importance of visualizing the reception of love, speaking empathetically, and knowing the power of the universe to overcome limited perception.

Mars (action, physical energy) in Scorpio is deep, powerful., and emotional. It squares Saturn (limitation, karma), which can cause frustration with desires and passions. (Visualize overcoming limitations!) Mars opposite Uranus can amplify anger and frustration, particularly about past events or repetitive patterns. Mars trine Neptune (mysticism, illusion) can help tremendously in applying intuition to overcome frustrations and limitations.

Mercury (communications) and Mars (action) oppose Uranus (change, quantum field). With the opposition, we’re likely to see upset or chaos in the inner and/or outer world—or we may identify sources of the upset, which leads to insight and new visions for the future.

Moon trines Pluto (transformation, underworld), and Sun (life), Mercury (mind), and Neptune (mysticism) sextile Pluto. Pluto tends to act as destroyer before acting as the phoenix, but it’s actually positive in this chart. The aspects may indicate heightened ability to transcend difficulties in life through meditation and surrender to the universe’s version of destiny.


  • The long lunar eclipse indicates the need for examination of emotions as well as inviting in positive emotions with a focus on harmony, abundance, and positive feelings.
  • Aspects with Neptune (mysticism, illusion) invite listening to our hearts and following our intuition to find solutions and new perceptions.
  • Aspects with Mars (action), Mercury (thought), and Uranus (sudden, impulsive change or higher spiritual change) can bring upset and frustration.
  • Positive aspects with Pluto encourage transition into higher versions of the self.

7 Simple Ways to Pursue Awakening


These are methods that I often use intermittently or constantly, depending on the placement of my consciousness. All of them lead to light, but they require persistence and desire.

  • Ask for awakening. Ponder what awakening is and what part of your consciousness receives awakening. Where does awakening come from? How do you know when you’re awakening?
  • Flashes of light, intuitive knowing, and feeling the flow of life are indications of having found the right path, but they subside unless you continue your work. (Don’t stop!)
  • Find the flow when life falls into place—the feeling of walking in the forest when your heart, breath, and pace align. It can also come as the sensation of love when heart opens and expands in happiness, knowing, or deep understanding.
  • When life becomes better, happier, and easier, we are staying in the flow. Most people end their work for a time when life becomes better; yet, it’s necessary to continue seeking to stay on the path. Go deeper and ask for more.
  • Ask often what is my true or inner self? How does it feel? How does it speak? If you know how to connect with it, then ask frequently for its presence.
  • Identify the value of life through your heart. The heart connects to the earth and the universe so that the ALL can speak to you at any time. Open to feeling it more and trust its direction. It will not lead you astray. (Hint: rose is anagram for eros, indicating the important of all forms of love.)
  • Find a teacher who sees the beauty in you and work with diligence. Discover people who see the beauty in you and spend time with them. Meditate and reflect on your inner value from time to time.

By focusing on these questions and thoughts, you divert the flow of consciousness from everyday life to the eternal.

Intense, Mystical New Moon



The New Moon appears on November 4 at 5:16 pm ET, and it brings a great deal of mystical energy. It is an intense lunation with Sun, Moon, and Mars closely placed in Scorpio. Sun (outer life), Moon (inner self, emotions), and Mars (action, assertion) are placed in Scorpio, the sign that rules birth, death, and sex—all different forms of transformation. Scorpio delivers psychic perception, magnetism, intelligence, passion, and determination.

The New Moon chart heralds a time of change and transcendence of limiting aspects in life. A great deal of energy comes from Sun/Moon opposition with Uranus, which can open our consciousness to the need for authenticity. (Awakening usually grants this information, and action creates it. Inspiration for action is implied in these aspects.)

Sun, Moon, and Mercury (communication) conjunct Mars, heightening the desire for action and change. Sun, Moon, and Mars (action) oppose Uranus, known as the wildcard as it rules the quantum field and/or erratic change. Uranus can also bring about deep awakening and gestalt understanding of new energies, brilliant thoughts, or nervousness.  Sun (outer life), Moon (emotions), Mercury (communications) and Mars (action) square Saturn (time, limitation), indicating the need to overcome misperceptions and mistakes from the past—or simply apply wisdom to mitigate karma.

Sun and Moon trine Neptune (exaltation, imagination, mystical) in Pisces, increasing the magnetic power of emotion in everyone. Neptune rules imagination, the sea, and the mystical; it can also indicate the awakening of hope and new dreams.

Mercury (communications) in Libra is balanced, artistic, and harmonious. Mercury trines (harmonious) Jupiter (good fortune), bringing optimism and good news. Mercury square Pluto (underworld, transformation) heightens the ability to understand hidden aspects of the psyche. It also intensifies feelings and emotions when we interact with others.

Venus is on the last degree of Sagittarius, moving into Capricorn on November 5, and it’s not a perfect place for this planet. Venus in Capricorn brings a strange equation of strong and suppressed emotion, which can bubble to the surface in strange ways. With this placement, there’s an opportunity to build structure in relationships, but it’s also more difficult to correctly convey emotion from the heart. (Venus moves into retrograde, remaining in Capricorn for four months.)

Mars (action) in Scorpio is intense, moving from the depth of hidden emotion to strong expression. Mars’ squares with Saturn and Pluto causes conflict through the desire to push and achieve while feeling blocked and/or defensive. Mars square Saturn (limitation) may feel like unknown resistance to our inner desires. Mars square Pluto increases the desire for success and power.

Saturn (karma, time) in Aquarius squares Uranus (change) in Taurus, creating a push/pull effect between the old/new in the outer world and personal worlds.


  • The New Moon will provide a great deal of energy—particularly emotional energy. When we feel emotion intensely, it’s important to think about changing our lives in a positive sense and meditating on universal love. It’s also helpful to know emotions are like waves; they rise and fall.
  • Take time to dream and imagine wonderful things, but keep them in perspective. When thinking about dreams and desires, consider the time and energy needed to put them into physical form. (Aspects with Neptune can cause lack of realism and a bit of escapism.)
  • Aspects with Uranus encourage new expression and individualism, and aspects with Saturn restrict its expression. Use the energy to visualize your desired life with fewer constraints and limitations. The process of creation provides the “how”.
  • Awakened individuals will become more intuitive and psychic with the passage of the New Moon. The placement of the planets and aspects with Neptune expand our mystical qualities. (Make notes and listen to your inner voice.)
  • The chart increases the desire for success, action, and power. Use it wisely.

Understanding Emotion



When life changes, we feel emotion. Emotion is a wave, which takes our feelings to a lower or higher point. It’s a normal part of spiritual growth, and it’s called oscillation, a reference to the motion between waves of thought and emotion. When we are centered in connection, we are aligned with the heart. Through this practice, life ceases its motion; it is anchored by unconditional love. It is one of the benefits of devotion and meditation.

  1. Emotions change. Much of our interpretation of emotion has to do with our feelings of “good” and “bad.” As we surrender memories and patterns, our feelings change. When we learn to how to move to a higher frequency, many of our emotions alter, becoming more positive.
  2. When we are centered, we generally feel less emotion. We feel neutral and positive in a general sense. We feel love, which supports us and carries us through life. (We can experience more of this by focusing on pink light or love in the area around us.)
  3. Our imagination influences our emotion as does visualization. We generally tend to verbalize our problems and focus on them through images in our mind. Negative emotions are often amplified by giving them a “voice.” Much of this practice is programmed in our society, but it’s not a good use of our energy. It’s helpful to imagine receiving positive emotional support from others or spend time visualizing a happy, desirable reality.
  4. Emotions are contagious. We can feel the positive or negative emotions from others. We can vibrate above their emotions, change the “mood” by speaking of positive events, or separate ourselves from the other person. We can also center in the heart, which teaches about our eternal connection to the divine.
  5. Life responds to our positive vibrations. The trees move, birds sing, and nature responds when we connect with our higher self. Life moves in a beautiful flow. People on a higher vibration will reflect our higher state.

Everyone feels negative and positive emotions. We change the pattern by staying centered when we feel lower emotions and/or changing our behavior. We invoke positive emotion by focusing on beauty, love, and joy.

It’s also important to love both sides of ourselves–the good and bad. It’s how we eventually find the “center” through acceptance and self-love. It’s also how we master the waves of oscillation, which grow stronger as we move more deeply into the light.

Powerful New Moon


Image by Madiwaso


The New Moon appears on Monday, September 6 at 8:52 pm ET.  It is usually a time of deep retreat, which is best used for reflection, but this Moon brings a different type of energy, which encourages deep inner work and commitment.

For those who are awakening, the forecast is lovely. Many, harmonious trines in the chart support manifestation, awareness, intuition—and positive change. However, focus, meditation, and connection with the universe are required to act on the high energies of this chart.

There is a beautiful window between the New Moon and Full Moon.  While the window is open, new beginnings, resolutions, and actions will carry us into the far future. If we take the first step or two, the universal energies will support us throughout our endeavor in the coming months.

Sun (life, light) trine Uranus (sudden change, quantum field) increases intuition about life in a very positive sense. It heightens self-confidence and a sense of self-discovery. It helps with overcoming the limitations of routine and sensing a new life, which is more aligned with self-expansion, growth, and the energy of the soul.

Moon (emotion) trine Uranus helps in creating beneficial changes to our personal life. Intuition is heightened on the soul level as well as offering opportunities for expansion. Correct intuition can lead to deep understanding and discovering the “feeling” or vibration of the right path for the future.

Sun (life) trines Pluto, which adds depth and intensity to life. Pluto rules renewal and regeneration, which can help with physical strength and inner will. It can aid with spiritual studies through deeper realizations and understanding. The Moon’s trine with Pluto leads to a deeper, richer emotional life and meaningful communication in relationships.

Mercury (communication, mind) is placed in Libra, which heightens good judgement, balance, and clear thoughts. Mercury trines Saturn (limitation, karma), and this aids in applying wisdom and knowledge learned through lessons in life.

Venus (love, relationships) is placed in Libra, an air sign which brings beauty, creativity, and heightened artistic ability. Venus trine Jupiter is one of the most beneficial astrological aspects. It increases optimism, love, and good fortune. The aspect helps in healing relationships; it favors good finances, shopping, and positive change in appearance.

Among the harmonious trines, there is also a challenge. Three oppositions with Neptune (mysticism, illusion) with Sun, Moon, and Mars cause difficulty with seeing clearing and finding our way. If we think about the world, there’s a great deal of confusion. It’s essential to navigate through it with the inner self through feelings and intuition—and to trust the universe. (Thoughts and emotions can be misleading. Go within to find the right direction and act accordingly.)

Mars (action) trines Pluto (underworld, transformation) gives strength, confidence, and the power to move through blocks and limitations. It can also give physical renewal and regeneration. It’s very supportive of new, different actions and attitudes in life.

Saturn (limitation, karma) squares Uranus (change), creating the current duality and tension between left and right, political views, and general disagreement about points of view. The aspect stays in place through 2021.

Uranus (quantum field, sudden change) trines Pluto (subconscious, transformation) gives heightened awareness, volatility, and an opportunity to discover more about our place in the universe. It lends energy for expansion and transcending aspects of ordinary life that are no longer meaningful.

Overall, it’s a wonderful chart for people who long to manifest a better life. It also reflects many of the energies, which I’ve felt in recent weeks—the song, the calling of a new time when life flows in the direction of universal knowledge and love–and problems are resolved in a new way.



  1. Sun (life), Moon (emotions), and Mars (action) in Virgo gives the necessary grounding to manifest hopes and dreams.
  2. The many trines with Uranus (sudden change, quantum field), which are highly harmonious aspects, supply an opening to channel intuition,  to sense our future as more evolved beings, and to transform our daily life into alignment with the higher aspects of life.
  3. Trines with Pluto give strength, resilience, and the will to make changes in life. When aspects with Pluto are positive, they give the power to move our lives in a meaningful and deep direction.
  4. Venus (love) trine Jupiter (good fortune) gives a feeling optimism and heightens positive communication in relationships.
  5. We should plan to use our best manifesting techniques such as prayer, visualization, and intent as often as possible. (Three oppositions with Neptune can block our “knowing” of the best direction and outcome; however, we can work on dreams, which we have held tightly in the past, and take action.)

New Moon, Powerful but Odd Energy


The New Moon appears on August 8 at 9:50 am. It marks the Lion’s Gate, a time of receiving solar energy and fire. Typically, the New Moon is a quiet time for inner reflection. This month, the New Moon exerts pressure, encourages change, and asks for a clear look at our present and future.

It’s a challenging chart with a wide range of energies. There are creative, fiery energies and opportunities to succeed in outer life. Limitations in relationships and self-esteem also present themselves as well as healing energies. It’s up to us to read and respond to the energy as best we can. (Many planets aspect Uranus, which can cause disruption with electronics.)

Sun, Moon, and Mercury are in Leo, which brings beautiful and intensely creative energy. Leo rules the heart; it is symbolized by the lion. It enhances confidence and power. It aids with acting on our deeper desires and activates self-expression.

A strong T-square appears in the chart, causing tension and pressure. T-squares cause pressure to create change. When we feel tension, metaphysics tells us to go within, observe our environment and life habits and sense what needs changing.

On another level, the earth and our outer world are changing. The universe speaks to us through dreams and intuition to urge us to take part in the shifting of the ages. When we listen through our heart and take actions based on this information, we alter our lives and become part of a positive shift.

Sun/Moon conjunct Mercury (thought) enhances our ability to express our deeper thoughts and longings. Our moods and desires in life can find new expression, and creativity is heighted. All three signs are placed in fire, which heightens creativity and the desire for new outlets of expression.

Sun (life) and Moon (mood/emotion) oppose Saturn in Aquarius.  It’s a bit like a cloudy, dark day. Wait a few hours or days, and the sun will return illuminating the beauty of the world. The two aspects can cause life to feel heavy or oppressive, particularly as a result of the past. We may feel moody with the impression that our efforts are not creating results. (It’s not true. See it as if the sun is behind a cloud, when it

Sun and Moon square Uranus (sudden change, quantum field) can cause nervousness and tension. We can feel and anticipate changes on the horizon, but we can’t identify them (yet). It’s important to focus on desirable changes. Meditation and inner work can also help with the odd energies.

Mercury in Leo & New Perspectives

Mercury (thought, communication) in Leo confers confidence, bold thinking, and big goals. It encourages self-expression and heightens persuasive skills.

Mercury opposes Jupiter, which can bring big ideas, desires, and optimism. It’s a good time to examine old beliefs, thoughts, and patters while dreaming up a better future. Dreams and desires are likely in alignment with a more desirable future.

Mercury squares Uranus (sudden change/quantum field) encourages a new perspective and outlook on life. It’s important to curb impulsiveness and look at the details, but it definitely encourages growth and a wider view of life. (The aspect may negatively impact electronics.)

Venus & Relationships

Venus (love, art, feminine) in Virgo trines Uranus (sudden change, quantum field), enlarges our desire for expansion, the unusual, and a break from the mundane. There’s a strong desire for adventure and creativity. It’s important to express ourselves in a new way.

Venus in opposition to Neptune (mysticism, idealism) heightens sensitivity and makes love relationships more difficult. People tend to take advantage of our caring, giving qualities. It’s best to focus on self-improvement and self-love.

Venus trine Pluto (underworld, transformation) intensifies energy, drive, and passion. Venus also influences and improves finances. It enhances the power and concentration needed for manifestation.  

Opportunities to Pursue

Mars in Virgo brings a sense of practicality and attention to detail. It likes focus on goals and improvement in life. It also increases health and vitality. (Avoid over-analyzing and focus on positive changes that include a healthier lifestyle.) Mars (energy, male) opposes Jupiter, which can bring a desire for success along with increased self-confidence

Mars trine Uranus sharpens intuition and inner knowledge. It gives boldness and confidence, particularly with new projects and endeavors. The aspect confers a new method of self-expression and a desire for creativity. In general, instincts and intuition are strengthened by the aspect. Listen to your inner self and take a new step into success. Fulfill your inner longings.

Saturn square Uranus

Saturn (karma, limitation) in Aquarius squares Uranus (quantum field, sudden change) in Taurus. This aspect extends throughout the year. It’s a play of energies, which may partially represent the cost of an electronic world on our physical being. (The moon voyages and space age brought frozen or dried meals with preservatives and poor nutrition.) It’s not great to sit at a computer all day or experience exposure to 5G waves or satellites. The earth is not keen to have more electrical lines, cables, oil drilling, or devastation of species.  It’s up to us to learn from the aspect and create a world that is more in harmony with nature. (Visualizing helps.)

A Good Time for Healing

In Greek mythology, Chiron was depicted as a centaur, often with a child on his back. The symbolism refers to the wounding and subsequent healing of the inner child, and his/her newly found ability to travel through the world and take in the sights with wonder and joy.  Part of the inner work with Chiron revolves around freeing our inner child—and creating a new perspective of life.

The following aspects with Chiron offer a positive time for healing the inner child and outer self. Sun/Moon trine Chiron, the wounded healer, helps with moving beyond old wounding, disillusionment, and bitterness to find the brighter path of our destiny. It activates wisdom, compassion, and understanding of deeper patterns. The aspect enlarges our will and our desire to live a good and meaningful life.

Saturn sextile Chiron increases our awareness of how the victim or wounded one inflicts their hurt on others., This aspect heightens our ability to see the pattern and free ourselves from these types of outcomes.

Planet Retrograde

Jupiter (expansion, good luck), Saturn (limitation), Neptune (mysticism, illusion) and Pluto (subconscious, transformation) and Chiron (wounded healer) are in retrograde. Retrograde is a more passive motion as the planets do not touch us directly with their energy. It can make efforts feel difficult, and it can take more energy to move in a new direction.

These retrogrades occur every year, and, perhaps, they indicate the initial struggle that all new plans and improvements involve. We are usually sore when we exercise, lack knowledge with new studies, and create adjustments and changes in schedule when we alter our living arrangements. It’s a motion with which we become familiar as we move through life.
