Beautiful New Moon

Image by Griffin Lambert

 

It’s easy to feel the shift through the sigh of the trees, the motion of the clouds, and the alterations in the weather. The planet is shifting and taking us along for the ride.

The New Moon appears on May 11 at 2:59 pm. With Sun, Moon, Uranus, and Pluto in earth signs, it makes for a fertile energy for fostering ideas, working with the soil, resting, or enjoying the beauty of nature. While it’s important to work with plans and keep life in order, this is a moon for a brief period of rest and reflection.

The Sun and Moon form beautiful shapes with Neptune (mysticism) and Pluto (underworld, transformation.) Sun (life, light) and Moon (emotion) sextile Neptune and trine Pluto. Aspects with Neptune heighten sensitivity, creativity, and receptiveness. Trines with Pluto increase personal magnetism and intensity. The aspects can help with changing our lives in a positive sense. (Positive aspects with Pluto tend to increase power and energy in general.)

When Uranian energies conjunct and align positively with the sun and moon–our personal yin and yang–we experience the impetus of spiritual energy coursing through our lives. Divine, inspired ideas are sometimes received, causing our lives to flow in a spiritual direction. (Uranus rules the quantum field where odd changes and thoughts lead to greater realization.)

Mercury (thought, communication) is placed in Gemini, radiating rapid thought and increased ability to communicate effectively. Mercury conjuncts (close to) Venus, aligning the higher mind with the heart. Mercury trines (harmonious) Saturn (limitation/structure/karma), and it’s positive with this placement, aiding in our ability to bring order to our thoughts and plans. Mercury conjuncts the North Node (collective goals and commitments), which can give clarity and unity to our collective quests in a positive sense.

Venus (love, romance) trine Pluto heightens love, romance, and sensuality. It intensifies our feelings and emotions about love, relationships, and prosperity. Desire is a part of every quest, and Venus in this position increases it by deepening emotions, aesthetics, and commitment to all types of relationships. Venus square Jupiter can increase the desire to have fun, relax, or forget about work, but the feeling isn’t conducive to growth. (It’s wise to push past it.)

Mars (action, assertiveness, male) in Cancer brings emotions into play, particularly when we contemplate action and moving through particular aspects of life. Our emotions may interfere with right action—unless we simply accept the need to take a step and make changes in the flow of life.

Jupiter (good fortune, expansion) is on the last degree of Aquarius. On May 13, Jupiter moves into the first degree of Pisces where it becomes exalted (the most beneficial position and sign for a planet). Jupiter in Pisces stirs the soul, uniting inner knowledge and expansion. It heralds a time of optimistic thought, new ideals, and positive feelings.

Saturn in Aquarius square Uranus in Taurus refers to the divisive energies between Saturn (old world structure) and Uranus (the utopian dream). It points to the conflicts between liberal and conservative on political, economic, and social levels. The square involves the conflict between issues of technology and harmony on earth and the physical world.

Pluto is retrograde until October 6. It occurs every year, and the retrograde involves creating boundaries, releasing control issues, and reclaiming personal power. It’s also a good time to review goals.

Tips

  1. The New Moon brings peaceful energy through aspects with Neptune, which rules mysticism and encourages insights into our spiritual nature.
  2. Trines with Pluto increase power and energy, making it a good time to focus on long term goals and personal resources.
  3. Mercury in Gemini bring clarity to the mind and aids with thought and communication.
  4. Jupiter is moving into Pisces, which will bring a feeling of wellbeing.
  5. The New Moon provides a period of rest and reflection, which should be followed by action. Think and meditate about the wisest actions for making long term changes in life.

Creating Change through Visualization

1) Begin with a positive and courageous attitude. It doesn’t matter if you tried and failed in the past. Your perseverance coupled with practice will change your life. In time, you’ll recognize patterns of lower emotion and thought. You’ll transcend them with positive imagery and thought. The beliefs will alter with practice. (It’s good to know this is a particularly good time for creative change. The planets and New Year support it. Many people are awakening and changing at this time, and their energy lends support with your efforts.)

2) When you have a wonderful day and/or a successful practice, compliment yourself. Notice your good work. Notice how you feel. In time, this will help you to discern when you are/are not connected. This teaches volumes about connection with your heart. Build yourself up for making the effort. (If you miss one day, compliment yourself for the previous six days of practice.)

3) Whether or not you feel connected in meditation, believe it is working. Every time you practice meditation, you are literally collecting energy and light. The energy builds over time. Trust in the effort. An opportunity for change will come if you stay with the practice.) Believe the universe is working with you.

4) Everyone has created a big, positive change—at least once. Travel through your memories and choose one of these times to revisit. Relive the memory and feel the burst of resolve and courage, which resulted in accomplishment. You can use this energy again (simply by remembering it.)

5) Do work with your intuitions. Intuitions can be grouped into areas–true and false. Keep a list. Refrain from acting on the “false” intuitions, and act more on the “true” list. (It’s important to know you will receive new intuitions and dreams whenever you reach a higher energy level. It takes time to discern true from false—and the same is true with dreams.)

6) Spend time with people on a higher energy level. Find friends who encourage you and believe in you. When others see the good in you, you feel and believe it. (You don’t discuss your manifestation, but you do enjoy the friendship.)

7) Raise your vibrations by listening to lectures or meditations by teachers on a higher level and/or reading spiritual works. It’s good to read a few spiritual words before bed and visualize awakening in a rested state. (If you experienced a turbulent day, you can actually see everything as better in 48 hours. It usually works.)

If you truly practice visualization, you’ll learn how to project positive energy. You’ll learn to change your inner visuals of negativity to the positive, and you can do it for others. More importantly, you’ll find the sensation of your inner self, which always sees life in a very different and more perfect way.

Awakening and The True Self

 

Awakening is associated with learning about the true presence. It is a process, a method of attuning to the direction of the true presence. There are several steps of the process. The first involves believing and knowing the true self is there.  Rest assured that the true self hears and feels our desire  By recognizing and expanding moments of connection—such as happiness, peace, or joy—we connect more deeply.

A feeling of stillness and peace comes with the true presence. Meditation develops the feeling of presence. In meditation, the true presence mediates between our earthly presence and the universe at large. It connects us to a larger paradigm of reality with universal truths, which are much larger than the laws of “real life.” For example, we can send light or love to a person, without knowing where they are, and the person can receive it instantaneously. (This is transmittal—a method of sharing one’s spiritual truth or abilities.)

One of the indications of success with meditation and energetic practices is the desire for higher vibrations. The feeling of universal connection—the true self—delivers light, expanded possibility, and a deep feeling of love. By culturing and developing this relationship, inner guidance is provided over time.

Awakening is much more than meditating. In my experience, meditation helped in developing an inner calm and a quiet, peaceful feeling. My intuitive abilities also increased. But true awakening came when I saw the inner light in every particle of life. I could see how light lies beneath the structure of every object on the earth–and how the fibers were guided perfectly by the light above. The One Light appeared in many forms. (It’s fascinating to note that the inner light of nature responds to our individual light.) Soon after, I found a teacher in wolves—and I learned to see life in a different way.

After awakening, life is the same. But we perceive it in a different light. We become aware of the true self, which alters our way of understanding life.

In my practice as a teacher, I’ve watched students experience the process of awakening although their work may have begun with a physical problem such as abundance, relationships, or physical pain. Over time, awakening has come to many of them—and manifested as a deep understanding and ability with universal forces. (It does not come to everyone. Some people simply want to feel better or to have a better life. Others devote themselves to sensing the spiritual energy beneath the practices. But awakening does come to those who seek it with heart, body, and soul.)

  • Everyone has a true presence. We’ve all felt it.
  • The True Presence holds the qualities of the soul. It connects us with the universe, the One in All.
  • The level of energy—both physical and spiritual—affects our ability to tap into our true presence. Higher vibrations help in identifying this presence.
  • Meditation brings about connection with soul qualities. It can increase our light level.
  • All spiritual work is part of finding the True Self.
  • Connection with the spiritual self is often the component that makes manifestation work.
  • There is a mysterious, unknown quality in spiritual work. We pursue stepping into the unknown.

Recognizing Your True Self

  • Everyone has had moments of joy, a smooth current of positive happenings in life, strong (correct) intuitions, a sudden knowing of an answer, or unexpected help. A deep connection with nature can also indicate the presence of the true self as well as a spiritual insight or experience. In a sense, we release the immediacy of the demands of ordinary life and move into a non-ordinary life.
  • The heart speaks to us about the true self through our deep desires. What attracts us with a sensation of love and heightened spirituality? What gives an energized state and a deeper feeling of connection with the inner presence?
  • Observation is very helpful in finding the true self. In morning, spend a few minutes observing the actions of the routine. Observe the self while driving a car. Observe conversations. Who is observing? (Your True Presence observes.)  According to quantum physics, when an observer is added to an experiment, the photons change their route. Light responds to an observer. Imagine looking in the mirror. Notice your good qualities. Become aware of your body as you look into the mirror. Imagine you are the person in the mirror, and you are looking at your face and body. Who’s observing?  Your True Self or true presence is always observing. It is always there in the totality of your being. There is always a part of you with a loving presence, which is connected to the universe at large. This part of you is always awake.
  • We can think about the most illuminated periods of our lives. By focusing on them, we can recall the experience of connection. (This is known as the right use of memories.)
  • A feeling of the “unknown” is often associated with the true presence as are love and light. To some degree, the inner presence is experienced as the “unknown.” Mystery surrounds our journey into light and love. On this journey, we discover the light within the self–and how to integrate it.

Cold Full Moon

The Full Cold Moon appears on Tuesday, December 28 at 10:28 pm ET. It’s the last full moon of 2020, Significant movement begins to take place with the planets, as we slowly move away from the aspects of the past year.

Full moons ask where our dreams and plans are leading. Dreaming usually means deciding on a new direction; knowing what we don’t want isn’t enough. We should dream big and let the light of the moon carry us away. Seriously, the full moon usually brings fruition of dreams, but the timing of this moon signifies the importance of fixing on a desire for the entire year. (It can be as simple as becoming more of who we truly are or learning to share more of our light.)

The chart is heavy with earth, bringing the necessity to plan and create in the material world. Sun (life) in Capricorn is about ambition, climbing mountains, and/or creating from a higher place of consciousness. Moon (emotions) is in Cancer, a water sign, increasing our sensitivity and heightening feelings.

Sun (life) and Mercury (communications, mind) trine (harmonious) Uranus (sudden change/quantum field), and the trine brings a focus on individuality, original thought, and the possibility of seeing life from a larger viewpoint. Uranus tends to expand consciousness, thought, and the way that we communicate. It also heightens gestalt moments when we suddenly “receive” or perceive a large truth or universal law. (We may receive insights about how and what to manifest.)

Moon (emotion) trines (harmonious) Neptune (mysticism, illusion), allowing us to see through illusion and discover truths about energy, love, and positive emotional connection. Neptune tends to heighten optimism, the intensity of sleep and dreams, and creativity. It can also increase intuitive abilities. On an emotional level, we can more accurately read feelings and perceive the flow of spiritual energies.

Moon (emotions) opposes Mercury (communications) in Capricorn. Mercury in Capricorn is practical, slow, and methodical. Moon in Cancer is emotional, loving, and changeable. Emotions and thoughts may seem confusing and/or conflicted. The two energies alternate with an opposition, or we may feel both at the same time, which can feel frustrating.

Venus (love, partnerships) is in Sagittarius, which brings a desire for adventure and excitement. Venus trines (harmonious) Mars (male, energy). It’s an excellent aspect that brings together the soft, feminine aspects of Venus and the vitality/drive of Mars. It increases charm and creativity. Venus squares (tension) Neptune (mysticism/illusion), which can bring inconsistent or changeable emotion, heightened creativity, and laziness—or inspiration.

Mars (male, energy) in Aries remains locked in the squares that brought confusion and tension throughout the year. Mars is slowly moving away from the positions, which relieves tension and pressure as time passes.

Jupiter (good fortune) and Saturn (limitation, karma) are placed in Aquarius, which hopefully brings new humanitarian opportunities as well as a time for inner growth. Aquarius tends to expand individuality, new uses of electronics (including sound, light, and color), and values equality. Jupiter and Saturn square (tension) Uranus (quantum field, sudden change) in Taurus.

Jupiter (expansion), Saturn (limitation), and Pluto (underworld, transformation) remain conjunct in the positions that contributed to our current scope of reality, which will change in 2021.

Message from the Wolves

There were times when the wolves spoke loudly to me through howls that snaked through the ear and vibrated through my feet, legs, and consciousness. Their howls carried waves of messages and coded frequencies; which were given to me to decipher. Other times, they appeared in my mind as a clear image that was repeated frequently. In both cases, they had a message to share.

All of nature is more active at the time of the full moon. It is then that the wolves gather to radiate messages to all inhabitants of the earth. It is the time of their message for you. Please listen with your heart for the mind knows not the true meanings of the earth, but the heart remembers and recalls.

We come to speak of three of your gifts—the ability to see and feel beauty, the ability to create through intent and holographic images, and the power to create a future, which differs from the course of the current outer energies. With these three gifts, you have the power and ability to create drastically beautiful changes, and we remind you of this ability now.

Beauty is one of the spiritual aspects of the earth and nature. Everything moves in an incredible symmetry that energizes the body and soul. You see beauty when you are quiet and still. The subtle movements of the wind, the light of the sun, and the calls of birds act to awaken specific energies in your body.

You may refer to this as harmony or peace, but it is truly the heartbeat of the earth. When you meditate on such beauty, you are transformed. You, the beauty, and the quiet become One. A state of connection with the All ensues, and you move into the flow of life, which is available for all.  You may also begin to see the beauty in your life, in other beings such as people, animals, or the light through the trees;

This is part of awakening. Ask to see the beauty, and the universe will answer. Focus on your beauty and see the good within yourself and the world. (When you are tired, ask nature to take the heaviness and focus on the beauty and rhythm of the world.)

We see manifestation slightly differently from the way in which your world perceives it. It is not simply creating money, a house, or the things that you want. It is about learning how to listen to your heart and to form images of what it desires. It is partially self-expression, it is partially listening to the universe and hearing/seeing/feeling the power of its connection, and it is also learning to create and feel images that resonate with your soul.

  • Find your heart, the true essence of you. Think about the universe and its power to heal, to change, and create. Let the energy flow through you.
  • Choose one desire that your heart or soul longs for. Feel the desire throughout all of the cells of your being. Feel how the desire brings peace and growth.
  • See it in exquisite detail with color, sounds, and with all of the senses. Make the image as real or more real than life itself.
  • Focus on it at least once each day. Know the imagery is real, and you will find it if you have faith, connect with your heart and the universe, and practice daily.
  • Time is changing in your realm, and the amount of time for a creation relates to how much you believe and how connected you are with your soul as well as your level of light and love.

Manifestation and holograms are very important because part of the process lies in discovering how your soul thinks and feels. It also teaches you to pull in the higher frequencies of the universe and to substitute new visions and feelings for what was previously considered lack or negativity.

The replacement of one image with a higher one is part of mastery. It teaches the experience of more pleasant emotions and thoughts, which strongly influence your perception of reality. (Many emotions and thoughts are projections of the world that can be transcended, and you have the power to do so.)

Your ability to manifest will be heightened in the coming year, and the lens of your vision become amplified. For this reason, it is necessary to learn more about your inner self and its desires—and to learn to create them in form. Think about beauty, peace, harmony, and the evolution of the current self into a higher form. Allow the universe’s frequencies of light and love to guide you.

Everyone holds an unique hologram of how the world should appear and feel. Your idea of beauty, grace, and love are highly individual. They are wonderfully valuable, particularly if you imagine everyone’s ideal of higher concepts and experiences coming together at one time.

You can begin with the feeling of lightness and wonder that you experience on your very best days—the times that the world seems open. On these days and nights, the world speaks to you with softness and adventure. Your feeling of aliveness expands, and you feel the potential of life. You think about what you could do, what you could experience, and you feel a heightened aliveness. You encounter other and/or new parts of your being. Your mind makes connections where they have not existed before, you become more aware of energy and how it flows, and you receive the feeling of finding and discovering new answers and new ways of living.

All of this was known to you in the beginning—as well as a natural understanding of manifestation. You understood that everyone had a beautiful image or blueprint of the earth, a lovely pattern of desires and natural expression, and you knew part of experience in this realm involved inner discovery of the self and a melding of personal and almost perfect blueprints of the earth.

Through this harmony of understanding, you were conscious of the goodness and beauty of others. You understood the need for each person’s vision—and how it expanded the positive energies of the planet.

At this time, the creation process begins with your own manifestations. If you are aware of the higher collective, it is wise to create consciously. The remembrance of these states is part of the change that each of you desires.

We tell you to work with the creative forces of light, to focus on the heart and love when possible, and to seek the beauty of nature. Much light and many changes are coming to your planet. Use this time to develop your skills and learn how to change the planet through “vision” and love.

Energetic Forecast: Full Moon Eclipse

The Full Moon appeared on Monday, November 30 at 4:29 am ET. It’s a relatively gentle full moon for 2020 although it brings a partial lunar eclipse. Eclipses are similar to flipping the power breaker on and off; the light goes on and off. It acts as a reset, which may be needed at this time.

Throughout the last few months, the forecasts have been challenging, which required a great deal of energy and strength. It’s true that spiritual abilities and powers are often developed during difficult times, which usually involve karma on a personal and/or collective level. However, we can move into mildly optimistic weather between now and mid-January as the aspects slowly improve. (It’s a slow curve, but it’s encouraging.)

It’s an odd chart with an equation of beauty and strength balanced by instability, laziness, and an increase of emotion. Four strong aspects are with Neptune, the planet of mysticism and illusion, which points to Divine when it’s clear—but clouds our vision with other aspects. (The goal is always finding the truth through the inner self or learning more about it when the “weather” is strange.)

Sun (life) is in Sagittarius, the fire sign signifying the spiritual quest and journeys of all kinds. Moon (emotions) is in Gemini, an air sign that rules the mind and communications. Sun trines (harmonious) Mars (energy), and it heightens physical, emotional, and mental energy. Sun squares (tension) Neptune (idealism, mysticism), and it heightens escapism and a tendency for laziness. Moon (emotions) squares Neptune, which increase sensitivity and perception, but the aspect Neptune tends to confuse clear reads. (Neptune can increase psychic perception and artistic abilities with these aspects.)

Mercury (mind, communications) in Scorpio intensifies emotions, mental focus, and the desire to find hidden truths.  Mercury brings clarity of thought and greater mental awareness in this chart. It trines (harmonious) Neptune, stimulating creativity, ability with the arts, and the power of transmitting thoughts to others. It increases intuitive abilities such as visualization. Obviously, it’s important to use these abilities in a positive way.

Venus (love, relationships) in Scorpio is passionate, intense, and fixed on desires. Venus opposes (strong energy moving in 2 directions) Uranus (sudden change, quantum field); the aspect causes erratic emotions and thoughts in “love” relationships and partnerships. Venus trines (harmonious) Neptune, which creates harmony, beauty, compassion, and positive relationships.

Mars (overall energy) is in Aries as it has been for months. It continues to square Saturn (limitation, karma) and Pluto (underworld, transformation.) It continues to amplify the feeling of underlying anger and tension, which is prevalent in the United States. (This continues until January 6.)

Saturn (limitation, karma) square Uranus (quantum field, sudden change) combines stability and freedom in a positive sense. Open mindedness is needed for big changes. It’s important to adapt to change rather than fighting it.

The conjunction between Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto continues as does COVID and the resulting changes associated with it. Fortunately, this will begin to change in mid-January.

Tips

  • It’s an interesting chart with contradictory aspects such as Sun trine Mars, which increases energy, focus, and desire. Sun square Neptune, reduces energy and depletes drive. Moon squares Neptune—an aspect that increases emotional and intuitive sensitivity while clouding the issue and decreasing discernment. (Part of metaphysical work lies in solving contradictory issues within the self and life.)
  • Mercury (communications) supplies needed help with lack of vision and clarity. It amplifies the good qualities of Neptune, bringing clarity, artistic ability, and increased intuitive skills.
  • Mars (overall life energy) continues to bring frustration and suppressed anger with squares to Saturn (limitation) and Pluto (underworld).
  • Venus (feminine, love, relationships) offers strong on and off emotions with an aspect to Uranus (sudden change) and alternately provides harmony and compassion through a trine with Neptune.
  • An eclipse is an on/off motion, and the chart is somewhat the same. We can move from one duality to another—or we can remember who we are. Alignment is key with this full moon chart.

Planetary Change: Halloween’s Blue Moon

When the veil opens on Halloween, the Full Blue Moon appears. Full Moons are intense, and it’s particularly true in this case.  The chart presents odd aspects such as Sun (life) in opposition to Uranus (sudden change, quantum field) and Moon (emotions) conjunct Uranus. Uranus can act as a wild card, causing emotions and thoughts to suddenly change. Conversely, it can give brilliance and sudden insights into universal truths. It’s a strange forecast with energy moving in many directions, which is fitting for Halloween.

The Full Moon focuses on feminine energy with Sun in Scorpio, a water sign, and Moon in Taurus, an earth sign.  Water and earth signs are feminine and receptive, and they urge acknowledging emotion, finding understanding of internal states, and creating change in the physical world. Sun in Scorpio heightens intensity, intuition, and emotion. Moon in Taurus, an earth sign, is stabilizing and grounding.

Sun (life) in opposition to Uranus (sudden change, quantum field) can cause nervousness, tension, or irritation. It can also bring about sudden reactions and impulsiveness. Moon (emotion) conjuncts (close to) Uranus adds electrical energy and volatile emotions. With Moon and Uranus placed in Taurus, an earth sign, it’s possible to turn to grounding, exercise, and meditation to calm nervous energy and focus emotion.

Sun trines Neptune (mysticism, illusion), and it’s a beautiful placement, which can bring quiet contemplation and deeper understanding of the spiritual world. It can also quiet emotion and increase feelings of peacefulness. It opens the soul to receive intimations from the Divine.

Part of energetic work involves changing our perception when we feel a particular planetary or karmic influence. We accomplish this by moving into a higher level of life (and light.) For many of us, the full moon awakens subtle energies, which encourages our inner aspirations. The trick is to continue embracing them—regardless of the sensations of life.

Mercury (communications, electronics) remains retrograde until November 3, and it will likely affect the election. It’s difficult to work with electronics and find clarity when Mercury is indirect. Additionally, Mercury squares Jupiter (expansion), Saturn (karma, limitation) and Pluto (subconscious, transformation). Mercury square (tension) Jupiter can bring optimism and the ability for long-term planning. It can also heighten restlessness and impracticality. Mercury square Saturn relates to increases negative feelings of isolation and worry. Mercury square Pluto stimulates deep thinking and the desire to realize greater truth.

Venus (feminine, love, relationships) is beautifully placed in Libra, an air sign. Venus in Libra heightens our appreciation for beauty and art; it increases the ability to create harmonious relationships. Venus trines (harmonious) Saturn (limitation, karma), bringing stability, balance, and stability to love relationships. (This is a wonderful aspect for this particular chart!)

Mars in Aries continues in its retrograde until November 13. In the last weeks of Mars retrograde, our physical energy tends to decline. Mars retrograde in Aries pulls on our physical energy, and it may create layers of repressed anger and frustration. Mars squares Jupiter (expansion), Saturn (limitation), and Pluto (subconscious, transformation). Mars square Jupiter sometimes acts as a motivating force, pushing plans to action. Mars square Saturn brings frustration and inhibition. Mars square Pluto can give an intense desire to overcome limitations and increased drive. (On the level of collective consciousness, it can cause frustration, violence, or ruthlessness.)

The squares between Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto, which influence the current world structure and transition, remain in place as we move through a profound series of changes, which can lead to positive or negative transformation on the collective level.

Summary

Many aspects are found in the chart, which can cause tiredness, agitation, or nervousness, through the first week of November. However, there are also aspects that aid in seeing beauty, grounding energy, and finding the inner self. It’s best to pull into meditation, stillness, and higher frequencies whenever possible. It’s how we send light and positive change to the current chaos while maintaining our center and continuing with spiritual growth. (It also protects us from the outer energies of the world.)

Tips

  1. It’s a feminine chart with many signs in water and earth, which can help with grounding and inner flow, but more challenging aspects dictate a considerable effort with flow and focus of consciousness.
  2. Many aspects cause conflicting and sudden emotion. When we feel emotional, realize it’s temporary. Avoid arguments and talk later when the energy is calmer.
  3. Mercury (communications) in retrograde confuses the mind, electronics, and travel. The Sun’s opposition with Uranus heightens it. On the positive, there’s only another week of the retrograde.
  4. Sun (life) trine Neptune (mysticism) is a lovely, supportive influence that can connect us to divine forces and insights. Venus (love, relationships) is in Libra, accentuating the beauty in life, and Venus’s trine with Saturn stabilizes relationships.
  5. Mars retrograde in Aries can bring tiredness, agitation, and anger. It can help in pushing through blocks and completing projects.
  6. It’s helpful to know the aspects and their influences are only temporary, and many feelings and emotions are transitory.

Simple Ways of Working with the Energy

The energies are not always easy, but there are new ways of working with them. There’s time to think, meditate, exercise, and grow. As you read through the list, it’s obvious that evolution is the only way to move through the current changes. Spiritual evolution involves exchanging lower vibrations for higher ones, resisting lower thoughts, and allowing universal energy to sustain us. It’s also about awareness and balance, On a bigger level, it’s about moving into universal love.

  • More inner work. Focus on inner work and release the outer world. By working on your connection with the Divine, you radiate light, mitigate karma, and help others. Focus on connection and a soft feeling of happiness, which pervades your life.
  • Oscillation. Earth changes, alterations in the frequency of light, and mass consciousness pull your personal energies up and down. The low point occurs from the exertion of the outer world, which activates lower personal patterns. Inner work lifts your consciousness to the peak of the wave where attunement to higher frequencies is possible. (The higher frequencies are indications of who you can become, and the lower vibrations activate old patterns and lower frequencies.) It’s possible to raise personal vibrations into higher frequencies through conscious choice.
  • Anxiety. It’s activated by the world and mass consciousness. It’s not your energy. Focus on the heart space and the inner self. Centering on the inner self insulates your being from the energy of others and lower world vibrations. (You can add greater protection by seeing light around your home or workplace.)
  • Acknowledge negative feelings and dissatisfaction but turn it around. Make a mental list of the positive aspects of life. Visualize how you want your life to flow. Spend time “seeing” what you want to experience.
  • Return to source. Ask for clarity, understanding, and a deeper view of life. Make simple requests. Ask to change the flow of the day, use your intuition to create an easier, more positive solution, and spend 15 minutes developing gifts.
  • Find a neutral, balanced way of being. The world is very polarized in duality. Stay in the center. You can listen to other people but refuse to become pulled down by their point of view. Don’t defend or share your feelings (unless the other person is open). Change the subject and find a harmonious, interesting topic for conversation. In this way, you pull the other person into your harmony and light.
  • Know you are here for a reason. It may be to align with a higher vibration, send love and light to others, or simply see a better reality. But you’re part of the change. Your presence is important. When you change in a positive sense, you radiate more light. The light radiates outwardly to many others in the world, creating a substantial shift.
