Full Pink Moon Forecast

 

The Pink Full Moon appears on April 29. The moon is called “pink” as a reference to flowers and spring. Fortunately, it also brings the best forecast in several weeks. The Moon (inner self, emotions) is placed in Scorpio, a water sign, which benefits growth and fruition in the garden of life. With Sun (outer life) in Taurus, it’s a very fertile time.  (It’s literally one of the best moons for transplanting and germinating seeds as well as expanding dreams into physical form.)

Sun trines Saturn (karma, limitation), and this aspect increase enthusiasm and confidence with worldly and inner pursuits. It’s always a boon to feel pleased about overcoming personal limitations! Sun opposes Jupiter (expansion) in Scorpio. Our desire to enjoy nature and build outwardly in the physical world can conflict with Moon and Jupiter’s message to dig deeper and see beneath the surface.

The Moon is lovely, forming a sextile with Saturn (karma, limitation), which boosts our emotional state when overcoming patterns and emotions. It conjuncts (close) Jupiter, expanding our ability to see through illusion and find truth. Moon trines (harmonious) Neptune (mysticism, illusion), which connects us with the unseen world, increases intuition, and our perception of beauty. (This is a powerful moon with many aspects to lift our emotions and help us to see the beauty and possibility in life.)

Mercury (thought, communication) in Aries squares (tension) Saturn (limitation, karma) and Pluto (power, subconscious). The focus on learning the best way of communicating continues. It’s helpful to observe reactions relating to patterns, tiredness, and lack of connection with the self. (Much time and work is needed to learn to speak and act from the heart; it’s a soul lesson.)

Venus (love, feminine) squares Neptune (illusion, mysticism), which can accentuate and make the beauty of life more intense. (It can help with poetry, writing, and art.) It can also cause confusion with discerning between reality and truth, particularly with relationships.

Mars (male, action) is retrograde, which can bring feelings of tiredness, making it more important to develop or stay with positive, physical regimens. Mars squares (tension) Uranus, and this aspect can create impulsive action. Mars conjuncts Pluto (subconscious, transformation), which gives a strong desire for action. (Think twice before acting whenever possible.)

Jupiter (good fortune, expansion) trines Neptune, which lifts our spirits with a feeling of optimism and hope.  Jupiter sextiles Pluto (subconscious, transformation), and this can bring positive events associated with changes in life.

Uranus remains square Pluto, but the aspect is weakening. Uranus will move into Taurus on May 15, and we’ll enter a new cycle of awakening.

Notes:

  • Overall, it’s a positive chart, encouraging change and growth. Two types of change are accentuated. One is through transformation, the creation of new life. The second concerns the enjoyment of nature and putting thoughts into physical form. (Think about a garden and the process of adding, trimming, and moving plants. It’s part intuition, planning, and physical work.)
  • Moon and Jupiter in Scorpio touch on the value of introspection, states of transition such as birth and death, and the inherent mysteries of the unseen world. They can aid in understanding the relationship between energy, events, and outcomes.
  • The energy is intense, positive, and uplifting. It’s an excellent time for focus on manifestation. Plan to make extra time for meditation and visualize your desires. Take a small action if possible.
  • Some of the squares with Mercury (communication), Mars (action), and Pluto (transformation, subconscious) remain, but they are separating. In other words, they are becoming weaker and exerting less influence–or stress.
  • With Mars in retrograde – a two month cycle – it’s particularly important to maintain a good diet and exercise routine. Mars retrograde decreases physical energy.
  • Sun and Moon make positive aspects with Saturn (karma, limitation), which can create breakthroughs with patterns and limitations in life.
  • Aspects with Neptune (mysticism, illusion) can help in seeing the beauty and hope in life. Dreams may become more vivid, and intuition may increase.
  • Chiron (wounded healer) is in Aries, asking for awareness about patterns that may contribute to wrong action–or actions not in the alignment with the inner self.

Find the Light

 

Light and love are always the answer. They hold the highest vibrations on the planet. If we call on the light, the universe answers. But it’s easier to access “light” through specific techniques.

Light responds differently with specific situations and meditations. These brief exercises work well for a variety of problems, including receiving more enlightenment and understanding. When we see and feel life differently, it often alters into a higher vibration—and brings more positive outcome.

“Real” love feels unconditional, soft, and centered. It brings healing, answers, and gentle self-motivation. It helps in seeing the good in the self and others. It is like looking through a beautiful, rainbow lens with a heart, which feels uplifted and calm. All of the exercises will help in finding this place.

Here are a few tips for working with the Inner Self.

  1. Come to center and find inner self on a daily basis. Meditation helps in finding the true self. From this place, wisdom, self-love, and peace flow. The answer is in the center; it feels simple and true when you find it. (It’s easiest to call in the light by becoming still. It’s helpful to pull inward to feel the inner self. )
  2. Put your attention on happiness. Happiness—like all inner states—requires attention and contemplation. (It’s actually a habit.) Notice all of the things, which bring happiness in your life. Listen to your voice to see if it conveys happiness. Notice your feelings when you look at objects, read emails, or travel short distances. Make a conscious effort to expand and find happiness throughout the day.
  3. Peace acts like a river; it eases and soothes emotion. There are no thoughts when we align with peace, only stillness. Imagine experiencing peace before/after others attempt to pull us into drama. (As our energy level heightens, others try to pull you into their drama. By detaching from their drama and visualizing a happy outcome, we can return to place of peace.
  4. Know that life moves in a cyclical pattern, marked by highs and lows. The challenge lies in finding and observing the pattern, altering emotions, and making “center” or the true self more important than the feelings and situation.
  5. Conflicting thoughts comprise part of spiritual growth. It’s how we put ourselves together and resolve the many parts of the self. When the answer comes, it will be simple. It will resonate with the inner self. Until this time comes, notice the feelings. It’s okay to feel two, conflicting emotions and/or thoughts. Eventually, the thoughts do bring resolution and wholeness.
  6. Pull the mind away from upsetting thoughts and situations. Return to the heart. Practice meditation to return to center, then visualize a positive outcome in a place of stillness.
  7. Know the process is working, and the universe wants to help. While many of these tips and exercises are not logical, they follow spiritual law. Our visualizations thoughts, and emotions alter the course of life because they invoke—and the most  powerful part of our inner being.

Working with the Outer Self

  1. You can also use light with the self who interacts in the physical world. (This is actually how you act on the inner self’s insights.) You can begin by seeing success in your endeavor and follow it with a tangible step. Every step counts, and they add up.)
  2. All new work in the outer world requires courage and persistence. You’re following your intuition, and you may not know exactly how to move in the right direction. Decide on a task, see in fruition, and take a chance.  (Any response is always a positive answer–whether it seems like it or not.)
  3. Overcoming fear and resistance is part of the challenge. You (and everyone else) have patterns and blocks. Overcoming them is part of spiritual success. Sometimes, you simply feel the fear and go forward.
  4. Find a knowledgeable person to help with your endeavor. It saves time, effort, and energy.
  5. Focus on small tasks by creating a  visual or feeling of your desirable outcome. When you feel doubt or hesitation, return to your image and feeling. The images and feelings surrounding your desires come partially from the universe, which will come to your aid if you are consistent in invoking it through your thoughts, images, and placement of consciousness. Love yourself for making this effort.

Quantum Change

 

Less than a century ago, people lived without electricity. Twenty years ago, the internet came into form. The New Age brought lasers, healing with sound/light, and quantum physics.

The New Age is also bringing a new understanding of frequency. Max Planck said, We have no right to assume that any physical laws exist, or if they have existed up until now, that they will continue to exist in a similar manner in the future.”  (Physical reality consists of particles vibrating at a low rate. The low rate of frequency makes objects appear real and solid.)

If we vibrate in harmony with an ideal, an image connected to the soul, or higher truth, the universe responds. Higher frequencies such as light alter reality. The frequency makes “reality”—physical law—respond in an entirely, different way. It’s how small miracles take place.

  1. From a higher level, we can say our soul or inner self is the source of light. When we connect to the inner self, we receive more light. Meditation is connection to source. By connecting to the inner self, we contact a greater source of light within the self—as well as the power of the universe.
  2. When we hold a visualization, which is connected to the inner self, along with positive emotion, the universe amplifies the “visual.” This alignment brings in higher vibrations, which create a stronger, more positive frequency. If we persist with the frequency, reality changes.
  3. The result of the visual aligns with dominant emotions and thoughts—and the substance of the visual. (It can take practice and experimentation.) It’s normal to revise the visual several times as we encounter aspects of it in reality. We often find the visual by discarding old thoughts and beliefs while experimenting with different ways of seeing and feeling life. (it’s how we learn what we truly want—and what we don’t.)
  4. When we alter the energy field with higher, positive perceptions, we begin to live in alignment with the inner self and the universe, which frees us from limiting aspects of physical reality.
  5. With practice, we can create these shifts for others by use of the will. After creating a shift several times, we know the right position of the mind, emotions, spirit, and body. We repeat the technique by using the will to hold the energy in right space.

NOTE: Our limiting beliefs about time and space—as well as the goodness of the world—often limit the outcome of a visualization technique. With time, practice, and right technique, we move into a brighter space, which allows bigger and better manifestations in life.

Blue Moon: Love and Karma

 

In folklore, Blue Moons confer abundance, fertility, and good luck. (Hold a coin or flower in your hand, look at the moon, and make a wish to experience more of these three, happy states.) Blue moons actually occur when there are two moons in one month, and the Full Moon appears just before Easter on Saturday, March 31 at 8:36 am. (It is also the sap moon, referring to the time when trees awaken.)

Typically, the Full Moon before Easter is a time of rebirth, which includes resurrection of the “true” parts of self and life, but this moon presents challenges. It presents difficulty and karma with a T-square, which can cause feelings of heaviness, but the chart also offers answers through the auspices of unconditional love. Of course, we are the only people who can make the choice in the moment. (The higher forms of love transmute a great deal.)

Sun (outer life) and Mercury (communications) are conjunct in Aries, conferring the fiery qualities of passion and action. Moon in Libra indicates the right direction for emotions—and the importance of keeping them focused on good, balanced, and beautiful feelings.

The T-square is a bit like two geological plates bumping into one another with an additional plate on top applying pressure. It consists of squares and oppositions, and none of these are easy. But every T-square offers an escape valve. In this case, Venus (love, beauty, material goods) offers the answer.

Venus is love, and its placement in Taurus points to the way. Venus in Taurus is about the beauty of form in life. It’s about loving nature, the physical format of life, and the presence of everything beautiful in the world. We can love people for who they are. (Underneath the structure of personality and ego, there is an indistinguishable light in everyone.) We can love life for the opportunity of expansion, growth, and learning—and we can love our difficulties for the growth they offer. (If we keep the mind and heart on love, life should change positively with emphasis on creating love and beauty in the material world.)

Venus forms a beneficial trine with Mars (male, action), softening the effect of both Mars/Pluto, the warrior aspect of the world. Venus also harmonizes with Saturn (limitation, karma) through a lovely trine, expanding our ability to express beauty, art, and material goods in a beneficial form.

Jupiter (good fortune, expansion) trines Neptune (illusion, mysticism), which creates optimism and hope. It expands our ability to sense answers intuitively and to reach out for good fortune.

T-Square: squares and opposition

The conflict in this chart comes through cardinal signs (Aries, Libra, and Capricorn) and Sun, Moon, Mars, Saturn, and Pluto. Cardinal signs love initiating action, designing new ideas, and making life move. But the squares and oppositions stir up emotion, passion, thought, and action. For the next week or so, it’s probably best to focus on love – and let the rest go.

Moon in Libra opposes Mercury in Aries, putting emotions and thoughts into conflict; it also amplifies the sensation of Mercury retrograde. Mars in Aries likes forward motion, and Moon in Libra wants to contemplate the beauty and balance of life. The two motions are in conflict, and they temporarily exacerbate Mercury retrograde.

Sun (outer life), Moon (inner life, emotions), and Mercury (communications) square Mars in Capricorn. Squares with Mars can incite action, reaction, and passion. Often, there is a strong sense of frustration—or of feeling trapped in a situation. It’s also possible to misread energy by translating incorrectly. Again, emotions and actions can feel scrambled. (Go and meditate. Come back to the dilemma in a day or two.)

Sun (outer life), Moon (inner life, emotions), and Mercury (communications) square Saturn (karma, limitation), creating tension in the areas of life, which are recurrent and appear not to yield answers. Through focused reflection, it is sometimes possible to find answers, which have eluded us in the past. (With Saturn, it may also require perseverance with small, steady actions to create the desired change.)

Mercury (communications), Venus (love, beauty), and Uranus (awakening) square Pluto. Mercury square Pluto may cause feelings of negativity and/or the desire to blame others—when it’s more likely that it’s a pattern. Venus, when square Pluto, can intensify emotion and make “our” way feel like the only solution. Uranus (awakening) square Pluto lifts us up into awakening then down into the shadows. (After five years, we’re accustomed to it.)

Chiron

Mars and Saturn square Chiron, the wounded healer, and this indicates the likelihood of feeling old wounds and wanting to take action. It’s much wiser to pause and examine reaction before speaking and/or causing harm. (Old patterns of karma and action always come up when we’re evolving. Soften the cycle.)

Jupiter, planet of good fortune, trines Chiron, and this harmonious aspect hints at the possibility of gain and prosperity, which are earned through alignment with the inner self as opposed to action related to the wounded self. (For months, we’ve had a combination of trines and squares with Chiron, indicating a period of passing through old karma and the opportunity to heal wounds.)

NOTES:

  • Moon is in Libra, and Venus is in Taurus. Both signs are ruled by Venus, which exerts a positive influence in the chart. Moon and Venus encourage us to focus on beauty and balance in the area of emotions and the beauty of physical life in the area of the heart.
  • This is a volatile chart. Act as a light worker. Take 15 minutes each day to send light, peace, and love to the world.
  • Confusing emotions are found throughout the chart. Try to give others the benefit of the doubt and try to see their point of view. Don’t act on how you feel. Consider what your inner self wants as opposed to how you think and feel.
  • Correct thoughts will probably appear only through spiritual work and meditation.. Let the other thoughts go. You can take action and talk a week or two from now. It’s impossible to know if you’re right or wrong or if you should say it another way. (Moon opposition Mercury, and Mercury square Mars, Saturn, and Pluto – in retrograde – clouds clear thought.)
  • Actions should be based on projects and goals, which began before the retrograde. Journal your desires to initiate change and come back to them after April 15.
  • If you’re experiencing low energy, tension, or frustration, it will pass.
  • Whatever happens, don’t blame. Don’t fight. Don’t retaliate. Move into love.

7 Tips for Creative Visualization

Art by Mara Friedman

 

  1. Begin with a positive and courageous attitude. It doesn’t matter if you tried and failed in the past. Your perseverance 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. Beliefs and circumstances will alter with practice.
  2. It’s good to know this is a particularly good time for creative change. Many people are changing at one time, and their energy lends support with your efforts. It’s a wonderful time for awakening more!
  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 effort. (With visualization, you can also “see” yourself doing anything that is normally difficult. An opportunity for change will come if you stay with the practice.) Visualize an action in detail. Take action, and see positive results. Repeat often.
  4. You have 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. 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. (You don’t discuss your manifestation, but you do enjoy the friendship.)
  7. Raise your vibrations by listening to lectures or meditations by people 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.)

Easy, Happier Change

 

As nature alters the outer world with new life, it’s a perfect time for change. It’s lovely to create change that positively alters the direction of your life.

The world is full of tips for an easier, happier, and better life, but it really begins with you. The biggest changes come from finding the inner self, and they make life better, and happier (in the long run—at least.)

If you start with inner work, it’s easier than the way you’re taught in the “real” world. When you find your inner self first, the universe helps. Sometimes, the help comes through other people, a class, or a realization. Other times, it is simply a feeling that is used as a guide to find the way.

Here are a few tips for creating change from the inside out.

Listen to your intuition. Positive intuition is the voice of the heart, the direction of the inner self. By practicing with it, the voice – and feeling – become more noticeable. You can ask for the best way to perform a task, when it’s best to call a friend, or how to create more abundance and love. (You already listen to it in the parts of life that you’ve mastered and/or developed.)

Find balance between the spiritual and physical worlds. Discover the right balance of passive/assertive action for you.  Spend time in visualization/meditation and seeing all of life moving in the wonderful direction of your desire. Allow emotions and thoughts to move into a high vibration. Then, take a positive step to enact your dream in the physical world. (A small step is fine. Just follow your inner guidance.) After the action, visualize positive results and repeat the process.

Use your power. You’re more powerful than you think! Begin by visualizing small, happy events – a parking space, a check in the mail, or a gift from a special friend. Energize the desire. Think of times when you focused strongly and created a change. Remember when you spoke up in a calm, powerful voice. Remember when you’ve helped your self and others to find a better place of being.

Find the heart space. Your heart is the center of your being, the place of love, where you can center, send love to others, and find the help from the Universe. The heart tells you about everything that is true, lovely, and eternal. (It’s also a wonderful place to rest and detach from the world.)

Alter your perception. See the good in life. Notice the beauty, joy, and love. It’s possible to change aspects of life by changing the your inner focus. Think about the light in loved ones, notice the color of flowers, and reflect on the gift of the motion of life. (On a more specific level, you could decide your current job is leading to a wonderful one, or your bills are decreasing as your income increases. Regardless, the practice moves you into a higher state of consciousness.

By practicing these tips, you can make life easier and better because the tips engage the inner self and a different, higher part of consciousness. Over time, they will become habitual and will help a great deal. At the beginning of the practice, they will increase your energy and bring positive emotions.

Small, Simple Changes

Small steps practiced throughout the day raise consciousness and allow us to see life from a higher perspective. They also raise our vibration, making it easier to function happily and peacefully in a changing world.
  1. Dreaming with faith is very important; it’s how we express our inner light. It’s also how we shape the substance of energy in life. Practice visualization of  the desired future each day.
  2. When negative (global  or personal) events occur, come to center. Focus on the heart space, a beautiful pink circle in the center of the chest. The heart is the center of the chakra system, and the universe “picks” up on the vibe, offering both light and protection. When connection occurs, send light and love to the situation and/or person.
  3. When we choose the inner self, we automatically move into a higher vibration. Higher vibrations displace lower vibrations. When we focus on love and peace, the emotions flow through every level of our consciousness; they flood body, mind, and soul. (This teaches persistence and devotion because the impact and level of higher emotion increases with significant work.)
  4. It ‘s helpful to focus on the possibility of a positive outcome in all situations. It doesn’t always create change, but positive energy helps any situation. (Negative energy increases the problem.)
  5. In quiet moments, see the beauty of the world. Focus on a flower, tree, the sun, or moon. (Focusing on beauty expands our perception of life, and it increases loveliness in the outer world.) Nature heals body and soul.
  6. The energy continually oscillates; it moves up and down. One day, everything is fine. The next day, it’s strange or exhausting. A few days later, it’s fine. (On the lower energy, negative patterns usually come to light. On the high energy days, we experience hope and happiness. In addition to learning about energetic patterns, we learn to conserve our own energy and observe how we use it in the flow of life. (Balance is an important part of the new paradigm.)
  7. Remember the decision to move into light and awakening. Return to it several times each day. This increases our resolve and helps with placement of consciousness.

Sending Light

Image by Ellen Vaman

Sending light is one of the most important things that an awakened individual can do. It literally changes the vibration of a situation, person, or as aspect of physicality. It can be used to heal and transform the energy of the moment–or of the past. It teaches us to emanate higher emotions.

Sending light is effective because it requires a higher vibration, which is the result of meditation, love, or true compassion. When we send light to others, it raises their vibration.

  • You can help others profoundly by focusing on love (pink light in the heart area) and sending it to them. Light is most healing when we send it to a positive image of the person–and without a personal request or need.
  • When you have a problem with another person, see the problem and send light to it. Send light to the other person(s) and send light to you. (Every difficulty is 10% you – at least. You’re probably more powerful than you think. It may change completely if you change yourself.)
  • You can heal the physical body. Simply imagine light in a part of the body, which is sore, tight, or needs help. See the light filling this area. (When you send enough light, you should experience a slight sensation of relaxation. Stop at this point.)
  • You can send light to your inner wounds. Pull up a memory of a difficult time. See the memories within a circle or cloud. Send light from your heart to every particle in cloud. Do this whenever the particular memory returns.
  • It’s easy to become upset about a particular aspect of life. Create a circle, which contains this aspect of life such as body, relationship, etc. Put the word or feeling of area of life into the circle. Send light to the circle.
  • When you are fearful, worried, angry, or anxious, send light to the part of you, which is experiencing the emotion.
  • Whenever you think about the world at large, send light to it. If a particular area of the world comes to mind, focus on it. (Same is true with world problems.)

NOTE: These techniques work with all living things like animals and plants. If it’s not working, spend more time on the technique. (You may need to practice more and/or work on sending it through your heart space.) You’ll receive an intuition or suddenly see life from a different perspective.
