Overcoming Darkness with Light

 

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

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

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

Specific Tips

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

New Moon Forecast

 

The New Moon appears at 2:01 pm on Sunday, September 9. New Moons are typically for releasing the past and planning the future. They bring the energy of the “void”, a pause before creating in the next cycle of the moon. (The Full and New Moon tend to feel more intense, which is representative of the impact of light and darkness.) With only three planets in retrograde, it’s time to begin a cycle of moving forward.

Sun, Moon, and Mercury are in Virgo, which can indicate service, arcane truth, and emphasis on work. Virgo is an earth sign, and it rules the body, placing particular emphasis on health. All three planets oppose Neptune (wounded healer) in Pisces, and Sun and Moon trine Pluto (subconscious, regeneration.) The sign of Pisces can refer to the past age; it also rules mysticism and sacrifice. In past ages, there was an emphasis on personal sacrifice, which included helping others (and forgetting the self.) In the Aquarian Age, we are becoming aware of the need for balanced giving.

Virgo loves to move through life by focusing on details and giving directions; Pisces flows through life with eyes closed and navigates through intuition. Both skills will be needed to glide through life for the next few days.

A Grand Trine with Mercury (communications), Saturn (time, karma), and Uranus (awakening, sudden change) can help with finding our way through the dichotomy of the chart. (Every chart is about learning to live in the physical and spiritual world simultaneously.) Mercury heightens our ability to listen to the higher mind. Saturn represents the past, and Uranus symbolizes the future. By focusing on the inner self and listening to its guidance, we can successfully and harmoniously blend the lessons of the past, and the pull of the future. (It’s how we create a new life on a spiritual level.)

Venus is passionate in Scorpio, heightening magnetic and possessive feelings. Venus is not as agreeable when placed in Scorpio; she squares Mars (male, energy) and opposes Uranus (sudden change, awakening). When Venus squares Mars, it makes for disagreements between the male (action) and female (loving) sides of the self. Venus opposite Uranus can create sudden, impulsive action and misunderstandings with other people and loved ones.

Mars (male, energy) in Capricorn remains square Uranus (sudden change, New Age). It causes the sensation of a build-up of energy that wants to run rampant through life with uneasy emotions. Of course, we know better, and we have to deal with the energy by counting to 10 or running around the block. (It begins to subside around Sept. 18.)

Jupiter in Scorpio continues to ask for vigilance in seeking the truth as to why events occur in a particular way and people continue to act in a repetitive fashion. When we understand how our energy affects the cyclical events, we gain a great deal of freedom. As the planet of good fortune and expansion, Jupiter asks for insights and self-reflection so we can broaden our base of understanding. It’s how we move into good fortune by creating success through the happiness of aligning with the positive in life.

Jupiter (good fortune) in Scorpio trines Neptune (mysticism, illusion) in Pisces, which brings a light-hearted optimistic feeling about the future and life. By seeing the truth (Jupiter/Scorpio), we move through the illusion in life to create and experience beauty, elated emotion, and the sensation of flowing into the mystical aspects of life.

Saturn moved direct earlier in the week. In this chart, Saturn is a supportive planet that encourages positive use of structure, lessons, and influential memories. Saturn (karma, limitation) trines Uranus (sudden change, new age), bringing a beneficial energy and practical insights into building a new world based on the best of the old world while intuitively perceiving the possible benefits of the new world.

Sun and Moon in Virgo trine Pluto in Capricorn increase our potential of fathoming secrets hidden within the earth. Sun and Moon in Virgo heighten our ability to read information based on small details (physically and spiritually), and Pluto rules power and the underworld. With many good aspects found in earth signs, it may be possible to discover nature’s secrets – or to receive her guidance. The aspect also heightens our ability to use power wisely and feel life more intensely.

 

Sabian Symbols, based on Lynda Hill’s interpretations

Sun/Moon are on Virgo 18, “Two Girls Playing with An Ouija Board”. There’s a desire to use clairvoyant abilities to connect or contact the spirit world. The Ouija Board denotes a tool for divination. But divination only works when the mind and spirit are focused together on the question—and are open to the answer. The symbol advises wise seeking to avoid incorrect and/or misleading information to flow in from the spirit world as with an Ouija Board.

Mercury sits on Virgo 7, “A Harem”.  The feminine awakening presents an image of strong women working together to create balance and nurturing in the world. Obviously, the goal is living and working together in harmony to create a positive existence.

The image of a harem speaks of the problems of many women living together such as competitiveness, jealousy, and disagreements. The symbol points to the need to work through feminine weaknesses through awareness while developing strength and harmony.

Venus is on Scorpio 1, “A Sightseeing Bus filled with Tourists”. The symbol depicts traveling with others to known destination but with a lack of awareness of the sights, sounds, and passengers. The conditions are unknown, and experiences are imagined – to be determined during the journey. In many ways, a spiritual journey is the same. We know a more enlightened state is the destination but are unaware of what it entails.

Mars is on Capricorn 30, “Directors of a Large Firm Meet in Secret Conference.” The imagery hints at the concept of leaders deciding the future for others, possibly considering their needs – or not. It can also indicate subconscious forces that tend to determine events in life.

Finding Stillness in the Inner Self

 

Meditation brings a point of connection with the universe—the divine stillness. Everything ceases its motion in the exchange between our human self and soul. Beauty pours into our awareness. Physical sensations calm, and emotions become joyful as thought ceases. The illusion ends temporarily along with the sensation of cascading from one task to another. Light fills our countenance, altering and smoothing our vibrations and moods.

The stillness refers to an illuminated state, the search for light and a response from the universe. With practice, the energetic exchange can come on a daily basis—giving insight and inspiration to our daily lives. In the stillness, the heart speaks with a soft voice. It provides gentle guidance, which often feels like positive preferences or inclinations to move through life more softly (a slower pace.) From this point, emotions and thoughts become quiet. Intuition grows like the soft light dawn, illuminating the passage of our spiritual quest.

Often, we can feel the answers within us—even if we lack the knowledge of “how” to find the way. By meditating on the feeling of the calm (and unknown) answer, we find our way. We learn to substitute calm for agitation and how to push away negative thoughts and emotions until we find our true understanding about them. The stillness usually gives a feeling before it brings an answer. By meditating on the feeling, we essentially ask for more knowledge about the answers.

The same is true with gifts. We find our gifts by taking one step at a time toward the illumination of the true self and following our passion instead of pushing it away. There is also a quality of trust. It’s important to trust the information received in meditation and to believe in our power to bring it to fruition.

Life involves a dance between the True Self and the Not Self (the part of us that lives life in a way that we don’t like.) Meditation on the still point leads us into discovering our true feelings and preferences so we can take proper action. It also reveals the peaceful, joyful feelings of the true self, which are always present if we stay with our work—even when it takes longer than we would like.

Tips:

  1. It’s helpful to recall the state of connection before meditating.
  2. When emotions are wild or discordant, acknowledge it. Imagine pink or light blue light pouring into your emotions and the perception of your problem. Focus on how you feel when life goes well.
  3. Trust your ability to tap into the stillness and find answers.
  4. Observe when the mind chatters or focuses on problems. Problems often change when we admit our real feelings and involvement.
  5. Believe in your power to commit to change.
  6. Imagine your life moving in a peaceful flow.
  7. It’s a process. It doesn’t happen overnight. Energy vacillates. You will experience highs and lows. It’s part of the human condition. Send love to lows and give gratitude for breakthroughs.

Working with 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” by using specific techniques.

Light responds differently with specific situations and meditations. These brief exercises work well for a variety of a 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.

 

Here are a few tips.

  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.

Summer Solstice

Image by Phillipe Fernadez

A Midsummer’s Night Dream recalls the magic of the longest day of the year when fairies interact with mortals, and the earth lies green and fertile. This year’s solstice chart offers a different magic that comes from expansion into the inner self – if we overcome a few challenges, which is a perpetual theme in these days of change.

A Grand Trine, which accelerates our power to bring dreams into form, is found between Mercury (thought), Jupiter (expansion, good fortune) and Neptune (mysticism, illusion). Grand Trines bring harmonious energies through expression of positive emotion. When we guide our thoughts to elicit aligned emotions, they can be amplified into physical form. There is also a dreaminess in this geometric aspect– an element of mystery and beauty through the involvement of Neptune, which rules the seas of emotion, collective consciousness, and the mystical essence of beauty and art.

The Grand Trine gives a space to pull into the inner self and connect to the Divine when traveling through the pressure of the Grand Square, which causes tension between Venus (love, relationships), Mars (action, male), Jupiter (good fortune), and Uranus (sudden change, awakening). Squares also give insights about the repetitive nature of reaction and personal tendencies when feeling pressure and tension. Through observation and awareness, we can break through patterns and find freedom and strength. (It’s not just about creating – it’s also about releasing our limitations.)

Sun (self, life) is on the last degree of Gemini, an air sign ruling the mind, short journeys, and siblings. At this pivotal point, it is a few hours from stationing in Cancer, a water sign ruling fertility, the home, and the feminine in the role of the mother. Sun opposes Saturn (karma, limitation), suggesting the need to build self-confidence, overcome obstacles, and commit to inner/outer work.

Moon (emotions) is in Libra, an air sign ruling beauty, harmony, and justice. The most exquisite flowers come from seeds planted on a Libra moon. This placement sets the tone of emotion for the overall chart, and Libra can convey a feeling of balance and objectivity.  Moon sextiles Venus (love, relationships), increasing our ability to experience positive emotions in relationships. Moon trines (harmonious) Mars (male, action), and this aspect expands the potential of combining the right emotions with physical action. (We can flow into right action when emotionally aligned.)

Moon squares Mercury (communications), which can affect the emotional content of words and other communications—and cause tension when attempting to clearly speak and relate to others. Moon squares Saturn (karma, limitation), bringing personal, emotional limitations about relationships to the surface. Moon square Pluto (subconscious, transformation) intensifies emotions and need for control. (Keep in mind that control is ego-based; surrender leads to universal energies.)

Mercury (mind, communications) is in Cancer, a water sign, and there is a tendency for thoughts to evoke stronger emotions than usual. The mind is a tool for focusing attention, and the placement can be used as a means of focus on moments and memories, which hold harmony, happiness, and the realization of the inner self.  (When we think about these moments, our physical chemistry changes to reflect the harmony and create more of it in life.) This type of reflection can create harmony and expansion in life because of Mercury’s trine with Jupiter (expansion, growth) and Neptune (mysticism, illusion.)

Grand Square

Venus (love, relationships) in Leo is all about passion and the desire to feel red “hot” in areas of life that correspond with the heart. Venus is part of the Grand Square, and it is opposition (conflicting feelings) Mars (male, action); Venus squares Uranus (sudden change, awakening) and Pluto (subconscious, transformation). Venus opposite Mars makes for uneven transactions between the male and female parts of the self.  Venus square Jupiter brings a lack of focus for work. Venus squares Uranus, it tends to blur the lines between good/bad in relationships. Strong but inaccurate perceptions can lead to sudden changes.

Despite the tense aspects, Venus is love, and part of spiritual growth involves growing past temporary difficulties and uneven perceptions. There is always a bigger, universal perception although it may involve boundaries, speaking the truth, or changing ourselves—and we grow tremendously when we slip into big love.

Mars (male, action) sits in Aquarius, an air sign ruling thought and group connection/consciousness. Mars squares Jupiter (good fortune), and it can give courage and determination. It can also feel a bit obsessive and impulsive when taking action. Mars squares Uranus (sudden change, awakening), which causes erratic bursts of energy with a lack of thought about the outcome. (Sit with ideas and urges before taking action.)

Jupiter and Saturn

Jupiter trines Uranus (sudden change, awakening), adding optimism, kindness, and a desire for spiritual pursuits to the mix of energies. Saturn (limitation, karma) trines Uranus (sudden change, awakening), expanding our ability to combine the new and old worlds within ourselves and group consciousness.

Planets in Retrograde

Neptune is now retrograde, which can act as a big plus for empaths and psychics. Neptune rules collective consciousness, the shared sea of emotional energy in which we swim together. When Neptune is indirect, we receive less collective information and instantly use our internal filter more effectively. The retrograde position can be helpful in seeing reality more clearly.

Jupiter (good fortune), Saturn (karma, limitation), Neptune (mysticism, illusion), and Pluto (subconscious, transformation) are currently retrograde. For this reason, we won’t feel the strong pull of the outer planets as strongly as usual.

Notes:

  • The Grand Trine offers energy similar to opening a window and breathing the fresh air of spring. It is invigorating, hopeful, and offers the space to tune into higher vibrations – and to shape them into a wonderful, physical form. (As always, this requires work.) The Trine works with the concept of using the right thoughts to connect with images of expansion and abundance and pull them into physical form.
  • The Grand Square affects love (Venus), action (Mars), Jupiter (good fortune), and Uranus (sudden change, awakening). A Grand Square does cause stress; the object is to transcend it by finding the inner self and moving into a higher space of consciousness.
  • Many aspects are found with the Moon, the source of emotion and movement within the self. Oscillation is part of mastery. Observe whenever possible.
  • Solstices can be a door into the quantum field of consciousness where we find new answers, increase our light, and gain new perceptions about ourselves and the world.

10 Reasons to Manifest More!

 

Manifestation means consciously creating our life with an intention, visualization, and an accompanying feeling. The intention is the desire, which comes from the inner self. A visualization is composed of a crystal clear image, accompanied by a feeling representing the sensation of connection.

The sensation of connection is described as peace, love, fulfillment, or grace. Everyone has different words for it, but it is also the feeling of the heart—the opening of space to experience the universe, the One and All.

  1. It’s important because manifestation teaches how we hear, see, and feel our soul. It teaches differentiation between everyday life and the spiritual world. It gives hope, grace, and an amazing energy, which can be shared with others and the world.
  2. Love is the fabric of manifestation. If we create with the inner self, we must move into love by guiding it into form. (We exchange the old, erratic energy of negative creations for love when creating positive manifestations.)
  3. We become more conscious when we actively create. We are already creating subconsciously, but our tendency is repetition—and not always in a happy way. Positive visualizations and the development of a happier feeling actually raises our frequency. Life flows more smoothly from with a positive frequency.
  4. Awareness of our current process of creating soars when we hold positive images. Awareness is part of higher consciousness. When we are aware of how it feels to move out of higher consciousness, we can alter it. We begin to understand it’s not just life or other people. (Sometimes, it is other people and mass consciousness. But we can do something about it!)
  5. Successful manifestation comes from an universal connection. Positive manifestation comes from the inner self and source. It brings feelings of love, grace, and generosity. It moves us into a place of peace.
  6. We learn to trust and believe when we see our dreams and desires in material form. It’s easy to trust and believe when we see a manifestation in physical form. Also, there is that amazing rush of love!
  7. The beauty of the experience is a catalyst for creating good in the world. When we overcome fear, step into our heart felt desires, and see and feel the result of manifestation, we want it for everyone.
  8. Our awareness of universal laws is heightened. When we act on hunches, intuitions, and signs, we become more open to universal motion. We seek more experience and understanding.
  9. The universe opens us to new people, experiences, and heightened awareness. We feel, see, and sense more. We also sense more of the invisible world. The universe leads us into new situations and understanding.
  10. We understand that answers come from the inner self and the universe. This calm connection leads to self-realization and enlightenment. It also shifts the outcome in the material world.

More Details

Manifestation begins with the desire to create a better life—and believing the universe wants to create it with us.

Stay with the thought of happy fulfillment along with a feeling of peace and love. It can take time to work through patterns and realistically envision the desired life. It’s a process, requiring patience and devotion.

It’s important to know the universe is powerful. As the connection grows stronger, the manifestation takes form—and life changes by moving into a higher frequency. We gain in light and love.

  • Begin with a 5-10 minute daily practice.
  • See the desired visualization several times each for a minute or two.
  • Focus on the feeling of relief, peace, and fulfillment after the manifestation is achieved.
  • Know periods of oscillation (up and down) occur. It’s natural.
  • Reflect on the universe and the power of connection.

Full Flower Moon

 

The Full Moon appeared on Tuesday, May 29. Its influence will continue for approximately 10 days. The Full Moon increases our potential for manifestation; it brings fruition and germination to earth.

This full moon is called the Flower Moon, appropriately bringing beautiful aspects such as a Grand Trine between Venus (love), Jupiter (good fortune) and Neptune (mysticism, illusion). The Grand Trine can accentuate creativity, harmonious emotions, and aid with manifestation. (In this sense, it expands the Full Moon’s quality of bringing thoughts and desires into form.) The chart has challenges, mainly based on thought, emotion, and action—the three aspects of life that impact physical reality.

Sun is in Gemini, the air sign symbolized by the twins, and Moon is in Sagittarius, heightening emotional longing for journeys, adventures, and philosophical truth. Sun conjuncts (close) Mercury in Taurus, sharpening our wits and focusing the mind. Sun trines Mars (energy, male, assertion), increasing our ability to take action when creating our life and/or changing our path.

Moon opposes Mercury (communication, thought) in Taurus, making a strange mix-up between emotions and thought. It exaggerates both emotion and thought. Negative thoughts may seem stronger than usual, and there’s a tendency to overreact as well. (It’s a short-lived aspect, which will fade away in a few days. While under the influence of the full moon, it’s best to avoid heated discussion.)

Moon and Sun square Neptune, heightening sensitivity, emotion, and adding confusion to the chart. Sun square Neptune, indicates a need to build self-confidence and strength by taking action to express feelings and correct misinterpretations from others. Moon square Neptune heightens old drama from childhood relationships with the mother. (Both aspects ask for expression of hidden emotion and thought to clear old patterns and create a better perception of the self.)

Moon trines (harmonious) North Node (spiritual quest) and Chiron (wounded healer). These aspects help in finding a harmonious attitude and the right feelings to follow our inner navigation and release wounds from the past, which slow the journey.

Mercury

Mercury (thought, communication) in Taurus grounds and slows our thoughts. Mercury trines Pluto (subconscious, transformation), giving the intellectual ability to perceive underlying mysteries through analytical and investigative skills. Pluto is the underworld and, sometimes, the underlying truth, and this aspect can aid in penetrating to the “truth” behind specific situations and behavior of others.

Venus

Venus (love, relationships) in Cancer is loving, warm, and nurturing. Venus trines Jupiter, bringing harmonious energies such as charisma, positive finances, and creativity. Venus, Jupiter, and Neptune form a Grand Water Trine. Grand Trines increase our ability to manifest. In this case, the focus is on love/relationships (Venus), Jupiter (increase, expansion) and Neptune (mystical, illusion). Venus (love) sits in Cancer, the mother; Jupiter (expansion) is placed in Scorpio (transformation), and Neptune is in Pisces (mystical love). By nurturing and loving ourselves (Venus), we transform our lives in a positive way (Jupiter) and overcome the karma of the past (Neptune), allowing us to move into mystical love.

Water signs in a Grand Trine can heighten the emotional state, linking us with our dreams—and propelling them into form through creativity, dreaming, and reflecting on the fabric of possibility in life. A trine is represented by a triangle, the symbol of bringing together opposites and transforming them into harmony with a third point of reference; it also increases our capacity for manifestation. (Think of the pyramids.)

Venus opposes Saturn (limitation, karma) and Pluto (subconscious, transformation.) Oppositions tend to feel difficult, but the Grand Trine provides energies to overcome these aspects. Venus opposite Saturn brings feelings of loneliness and victimhood to the surface. Venus in opposition to Pluto can cause control issues, regarding love, to surface; it can also give the power to express hidden feelings in a positive way. (The challenge is to employ honesty and vulnerability over manipulation and a desire to control others to feel safe and protected.)

Mars

Mars (male, assertion) is placed in Aquarius, a fixed air sign. Air signs are concerned with thought and communication so it’s not a perfect placement for a sign that loves action. In this placement, the challenge is overcoming Aquarian qualities such as a strong focus stubbornness, independence, and getting one’s way.

Tension is created with Mars’ square (tension) with Uranus (unexpected change, quantum field). It can ignite temper or cause sudden, unexpected change, particularly when aligned with irrational thought. (Often, national violence seems aligned with this placement. In other words, irrational thoughts are inappropriately interpreted through impulsive action.)

Saturn (limitation, the past, karma) trines Uranus (sudden change, awakening), bringing a harmonious rhythm and integration between the past and future.

Chiron

Mercury (thought) and Mars (action) sextile (harmonious) Chiron, the wounded healer, suggesting positive thoughts and actions can help in healing old wounds. Saturn (time, karma) squares (tension) Chiron, which indicates conflict between the beliefs behind wounds and the impetus to heal and move beyond them.

Notes:

  • It’s a lovely full moon forecast with many aspects to appreciate the beauty in life and to find a space “within” for powerful manifestation.
  • The Grand Trine helps with love, good fortune, resources, and connecting with the mystical world. The Grand Trine is in water, and it can aid in smoothing emotions and creating a harmonious bridge between ourselves and others.
  • Moon and Mercury are in opposition. It is a short-term aspect, but it’s important to know our emotions and thoughts are on an adrenalin ride whenever we feel upset, surprised, or defensive. (Wait 3 or 4 days before confronting issues. They may evaporate—or we’ll feel differently about the best form of communication.)
  • Mercury’s aspect with Pluto can help to find the “real” truth behind energetic situations, the flow of life, and philosophical questions. It sharpens the intellect.
  • A theme of the need to build self-confidence is found throughout the chart. Perhaps, it is about trusting the power and voice of the inner self. This state is called “knowing”, and it’s impossible to doubt when we experience it.
  • Venus’ oppositions with Saturn and Pluto can cause insecurity and the need to control. (We feel the need to control when we feel afraid and/or overwhelmed.) It’s important to remember the beauty of who we truly are, what we have accomplished, and how far we have come.

More About Manifestation

Image by Amanda Clark

 

Manifestation is becoming increasingly important as a way of altering the flow of life.. As we become more intuitive, it can change small outcomes as well as the vibrations of others around us. On a higher level, it can connect us to our heart’s desires and act as an aid in our personal evolution–and perhaps the world.

Active manifestation involves alignment with higher energies and the inner self. Positive shifts in the environment and/or our personal world come from a change in consciousness, a state of heightened awareness. Initially, work may begin through awareness of discomfort and/or negative emotion, but the situation often changes by altering perception.
Here are a few tips:
1) It begins with awareness, the placement of consciousness, and a strong desire. A strong desire comes from the heart; it is beneficial and promotes positive change.
2) Meditation is one of the most effective tools with manifestation. It opens the heart and calls in higher consciousness. However, focusing a desire intently works, particularly when accompanied by positive emotion.  Your heart’s desire is created by you and the Universe. The Universe is aware of  your true heartfelt desire and will help if you ask.
3) You must create an energy mass that is equivalent to your desire. This statement can be simplified by saying that your heart’s desire has a certain amount of mass that is weighed in energy. When you meditate, change your thoughts, emotions and take an action toward its manifestation, you are accumulating energy, which is needed for anything to materialize in physical form.
4) Every physical object holds a specific vibration. You pull in the vibration of the object (even money) by visualizing and feeling its density, size, shape, color and the interaction between you and its physical form.  Imagine living in the image of the desired reality. Energy or attention creates “more” of the object of your focus. If you focus on lack of love, prosperity or joy in your life, then you naturally create more of an undesirable state. The same is true with positive reflections. When you speak about a happy/unhappy state of mind, you create a vibration through the voice — a sound or frequency that reinforces the appearance of a desirable or undesirable state.
5) It’s important to know you are worthy. You’re a beloved of the universe, who deserves a wonderful life. As you move into this knowledge and practice manifestation actively, you’ll become more intuitive and gain awareness of how to shift your consciousness to create more harmony for yourself and the world.
