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.

New Moon Forecast

 

As we move into the New Age, we continue our journey into the unknown. Next week’s New Moon will be a micro-moon, which means it’s farther from the earth than usual. We tend to experience the void, a point of emptiness or new beginnings at the New Moon, and it will be amplified by other factors in the chart.

The New Moon, Full Moon, solstices, equinoxes, and eclipses are openings in the universal energy—times that offer the opportunity to receive and integrate greater knowledge. Each door holds an occult meaning. For example, the New Moon is void, the time of beginnings, and the Full Moon is the time of fruition.

The New Moon on Monday, December 18 features seven planets in fire—and five in Sagittarius, the sign of the archer. With Mercury in retrograde in Sagittarius along with four additional planets, it’s a time to redefine beliefs and realign our direction.

Sun, Moon, Venus, and Saturn conjunct (close to) Galactic Center. It’s helpful to see Galactic Center as the eye of the Milky Way that transmits light, higher information, and inspiration. Light from this distance speaks of the future, and it can take time to read and integrate the information from the “download”. (It would be helpful to take an hour for meditation.)

Focus on the future also appears through five powerful trines between Sun (life), Moon (inner self), Venus (love), and Saturn (time/karma) and Uranus (awakening, sudden change.) Trines are harmonious and promote the creation of “good” things. Uranus also represents the New Age and Quantum Change. It can transmit ideas and images, which are useful in creating a spiritually aligned future.

Mercury remains retrograde until December 22, increasing the likelihood that we will have to wait before processing the “divine” information from Galactic Center. The retrograde makes precise tasks difficult, and it’s important to slow down—and use intuition. (The Higher Mind is intuition, balanced by reason, and it’s part of the lesson of Mercury retrograde.)

Venus in Sagittarius has a relaxed view about love. It’s a free spirited energy that prefers nature and conversation. Mercury (communications) and Venus (love) squares Neptune, clouding our understanding and creating illusion. The aspect can intensify beauty and mysticism—or highlight the negative side of the imagination.

Jupiter

Mars (male, assertion) is placed in Scorpio, and it is exalted in this sign. It gives a warrior like quality to cut through the superfluous and create powerful outcomes. Mars is conjunct Jupiter (expansion, good fortune). It’s a benevolent aspect, increasing success and desire for physical activities.

Mars and Jupiter trine Neptune (mysticism, illusion), which can bring the benefit of higher emotions along with glimpses of calm, bliss, and love. These qualities along with spirituality belong the elation of mysticism.

Sun, Moon, and Venus are conjunct Saturn. Saturn can bring a sense of heaviness along with unhappy memories from the past. Saturn rules time and karma; it can make life seem heavy. (There are many uplifting aspects in the chart. The Saturn aspect will pass in a week or two.)

Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Saturn square Chiron, the wounded healer. This placement will likely bring wounds to the surface. Squares with Chiron rarely offer solutions; they reveal the source of patterns and pain. (We may receive insights for healing through aspects with Galactic Center and Uranus—after all they represent the cosmic field.)

Both the past (Saturn, Chiron) and the future (Uranus, Galactic Center) appear strongly in this chart. The lesson lies in letting go of the pain of the past, releasing patterns, and absorbing the energies of a new world in the making. The potential lies in creative applications of new and unknown energies.

Notes:

  1. It’s important to rest and reflect with Mercury in retrograde. Use intuition to navigate when life feels confusing. Rest when it feels overwhelming. (Retrogrades are not about pushing into the future.)
  2. We will receive intuitive information about the future, the inner self, and cosmic awakening–particularly if we’re aware and meditate. Galactic Center will transmit this information around the time of the New Moon. (It will probably feel more intense on Monday, the day of the New Moon.)
  3. Mars (male energy) and Jupiter (expansion) can help with completing tasks, creating a path to success, and working with the physical body.
  4. Neptune (illusion, mysticism) continues to cloud the landscape with illusion and misdirected imagination. Hold the thought or belief for a week or so–and see if it’s true.
  5. It’s easy to feel tired or “down” with Saturn in conjunction with many planets. It may feel depressing, but it’s not. We’ll receive much energy and information for a positive future. The aspect will pass before Christmas, and our spirits will lift.

Simple, Difficult Lessons

 

 

The biggest lessons often involve daily life. They are about becoming conscious during repetitious and emotional activities. The lessons also have to do with our perception of light–and the world. (They also teach us how to blend the current self and the higher self in many aspects of life.)

If you’re encountering these lessons and feelings, it simply means you are awakening and moving into a higher level of self-development. Observe often and love yourself for your courage and fortitude!

  1. Moving more deeply into trust. Trust that the universe is taking care of you. Your higher self can always find the path and lead you into a place of peace, safety, and comfort. (When life is difficult, move into the inner self. Listen to your intuition. Make an active effort based on your inner voice, heart, or another feeling.)
  2. Your light is growing. You feel more of it when you meditate, and you find your light when you’re upset. Some days, everything falls into place. You find easier to understand other people’s point of view—even when you don’t agree. You know everything is changing for the better despite how the world might appear. (It takes time for spiritual creations to move into form.)
  3. Invisible connections. When you meditate, you feel others who are doing the same. Periodically, you sense the light of many other people in the world. Love and light flow through you. You think about a small problem, and someone (or something) provides the answer.
  4. Soul Contracts. People are moving in and out of your life. A soul contract is an agreement to meet a specific person during this lifetime. It includes children, spouses, parents, friends, and enemies. There is always a strong pull. Generally, it’s about resolving issues, growing into greater love, offering support, and working through emotions (both good and bad). It’s an almost inexplicable attraction/repulsion between individuals. (In soul contracts, one person may grow, and the other doesn’t move into love. Growth can also come from negative people, which results in creating boundaries. You may also move into greater love and strength. Regardless, there is always a feeling of “fate”.
  5. Accept the alternating energies. Nothing moves or happens as it did in the past. The sun and moon are often on a different course. Patterns of nature and the weather are changing. Overall, the changes can aid with spiritual growth because you cannot repeat the same actions at the same time every day. But you can hold fast to your practices. You can send light to others and the world. (Sleeping and eating patterns are changing. Listen within for guidance.)
  6. Listen with your heart. Softer emotions are replacing anger, fear, and judgement. You’re learning to pause before speaking. You’re beginning to realize how life moves in a different rhythm when you listen and respond. You experience an uplifting sensation of happiness when acting on your inner instruction.
  7. Sense the invisible world. You have moments of knowing. Beneath the appearance of the physical world, energy moves. It’s invisible and powerful. It speaks through intuition, and you’re tapping into it. You realize that person didn’t mean what they said, or the news is diverting your attention. You open the window and feel nature calling to you. You suddenly know who will call you or how the day will move. You know how to find a higher vibration (some of the time) and shift the circumstances that are flowing around you.

Jupiter in Scorpio: The Big Reveal

Image by Josephine Wall

 

Jupiter moved into Scorpio on October 10. As the largest planet in galaxy, we feel the pull of the Jupiter’s power as the opportunity to enlarge, improve and benefit in life. As the largest planet in the galaxy, we’ll feel its pull and power to enlarge, improve and benefit through the specific sign of its placement. Scorpio rules birth, sex, death—or states of transformation.

Scorpio is an intense water sign, mysterious and resourceful. Its strength is willpower and decisiveness, but it doesn’t mind walking on the dark side of life. Scorpio tends to have laser-like vision and sees objects in the dark or on the earth that others miss. In this way, it often reveals truths that otherwise would be hidden.

Jupiter in Scorpio will reveal truths hidden the in subconscious, shadowy aspects of life, and secrets in outer world. Scorpio also rules birth, sex, and death, and regeneration.(The Weinstein sex scandal is a perfect example. It appeared in the news as Jupiter moved into Scorpio, and it involves sex, money, and power. )  Jupiter tends to bring blessings, and the combination of Jupiter and Scorpio lifted a dark event into the light for clearing and change.

The sign of Scorpio is represented by the scorpion, eagle, and phoenix. The three creatures symbolize the progression of Scorpio through the scorpion that lives close to the earth and stings (hurts) anything that threatens. The eagle soars above the earth as a powerful predator; it has powerful vision but remains a hunter. Burned to ashes through emotional intensity, the phoenix rises through the ashes, achieving regeneration through spiritual fire.

Influences and Benefits:

  • Scorpio’s decisive ability comes from its power to sense and recognize truth on an intuitive level. Jupiter will expand its power to convey courage and strength. Courage and decisiveness are necessary to move through fear and obstacles on the quest of the soul. (The past two years in Libra focused on seeing both sides of the picture and weighing them carefully.)
  • Scorpio rules the void, the “between” states of birth, sex, and death. It can heighten our ability to move into shamanic or enlightened states where the spiritual world dictates the motion of mind, spirit, and body—and reveals the path of the soul. (Hopefully, we’ll return to a more natural, wholesome view of sex. Understand that the “dead” are with us—simply in another world.)
  • Spiritual knowledge is heightened by asking questions and solving mysteries. Think of the Zen koan, which asks, “What was your face before you were born?” Scorpio is masterful at solving mysteries associated with the occult, and Jupiter will help us with our journey.
  • As part of the Plutonian influence, Jupiter in Scorpio reveals what’s hidden–or we don’t want to see. (I’m not entirely sure if this is good or bad.) At any rate, we have to know the truth to develop spiritually. The big idea behind it lies in developing our ability to see the ugliness and difficulty in life while remaining true to the light. If we remain true to the light and our inner vision, we will go through a transformation, which alters our material reality as well as the self.
  • Transformation comes from Scorpio’s ruling planet, Pluto, which rules the underworld. In most mythical systems, it’s necessary to visit the underground to achieve hero status and/or the power to wield extraordinary powers. We’ll travel there during Jupiter’s 13 month sojourn.

It’s a challenging but enlightening combination of energies with Jupiter in Scorpio. Our emotions become stronger, and our passions will become more intense with a need to moderate. But Scorpio can be courageous. It gives resources to delve into the dark and resolve issues on many levels including transforming blocks to material wealth, moving through past obstacles, and understanding what is hidden within us along with the power to change it.

Through the Lion’s Gate

Image by Lucy Adams

 

The term, Lion Gate, refers to the time when solar light (Leo) strikes the world.  The Lion’s Gate symbolizes walking through solar energy by cleansing and purifying the fabric of our consciousness–and recreating ourselves with a higher light level. It’s a quick process because the Lion’s Gate is open between July 26 and August 12—although the energy is at its height on August 8.

The Lion’s Gate occurs during “Dog Days” or when the star, Sirius, precedes the sun on the horizon. The Great Pyramid of Cheops is aligned with the rise of Sirius, the dog star, as the influx of solar light brought a time of rebirth—an opportunity to glide into our divine blueprint—to resurrect the True Self. In ancient times, the year began on July 23 with the blast of Leo (solar) energy, and the gate of energy remained open through September 15.

Think of it as a cosmic blast. Solar light is associated with the masculine energies such as spirituality, universal love, and pure light. Light cleanses, and it changes the body. For those who are open, it alters the DNA, raising our capacity to receive more light into our overall being. (The light is somewhat yang and can feel over stimulating on a mental/creative level if we don’t take time to rest and reflect.)

The light brings endings such as harvest, but it also illuminates new beginnings. This means opening up to the universe and expanding what we think is the fabric of life. For example, everyone has problems, large or small. There are desires and objects of our longing; yet, they are part of the human experience—and are eclipsed by the universal light.

Light also acts a quickening and cleansing agent. It cleanses our thoughts, emotions, and  illustrates the darkness in our lives. Part of the darkness (for all of us) lies in resonating and identifying with the recurrence of the shadows. What we didn’t believe that we had to have these experiences? Or we could alter our lives instantly?  Who would we become if we stepped into more deeply into the light? What if more positive events happened more quickly? (There is a “feeling” beneath the questions.)

There are inherent challenges in raising our light level. Sometimes, we think about what we are leaving behind and worry about who we will become. Other times, we wonder how we will get arrive–although visualizing, asking questions, making wishes, or believing might lead us to fulfillment with far less effort.

On the human level, there are changes with every new level of light. They can be grouped for simplicity, but we may feel the changes on more than one level–or not feel them at all. When we expand our awareness, we move into more light. (Particular aspects of change, including the planets, stars, or natural events, are experienced in different ways.)

Group I – Light workers and light givers. If you are already giving light and service to others, you may have felt quite tired for the past week. Stepping down light for yourself and other people can feel exhausting. You may need rest, more water, or gentle exercise. The DNA changes when you reach a higher level, and it takes time to process the new light. The light can bring our personal shadow (and the shadows of others) to light. It can point to needed changes, letting go of parts of the identity, or simply moving into more love. Regardless, your energy can feel scrambled, but meditation and rest will bring balance. (Sometimes, we are forced to let go of our focus temporarily. Rest in knowing that the universe makes everything work, and it will support you.)

Group II – Open heart and awakened. The influx of light can actually support your dreams and help in gaining greater creativity with current projects. Stay aware of love and the potential to move more deeply into it. It’s okay if your thoughts feel scrambled and confused from time to time, it will pass. Project happiness and expand your visualizations.

Group III – Mass consciousness.  This group tends to refuse the influx of light; they actually move more deeply into the shadow during these times. They usually become angry or depressed and can pull at your energy more than normal.  It’s helpful to ask for a higher light level and ask the universe to help in clearing and deleting the attachment from lower consciousness. (NOTE: you tend to experience mass consciousness–or lower consciousness– in the areas of our weaknesses and/or karma, it’s important to think about your abilities and good points after an encounter.)

A few tips:

  • Fire brings purification and cleansing. What do we want to leave behind in life? It can be as simple as fear or as complex as a whole portion of personal/professional life. Trust that the change is for the best and take a step ahead.
  • Fire expands things. It fans sticks and leaves into a huge flame. Where do we want to expand our life? What is the spiritual plan? How do we want to awaken more?
  • Where do we lack answers? Let the fire blaze a trail. Follow the light.
  • Use the creative fire to expand and revitalize your life.
  • Let the solar light lift the inner and outer life to a higher level. Who would we become on a higher level?

5 Steps for Creating Your Dreams

 

Manifestation alters with the changing energies. Staying connected with our dreams is one of the most important acts of our lives because it connects us to the true self. It also determines the flow of our life. Otherwise, our life repeats through the projection of the subconscious mind and its old patterns. When we focus on creating a new life—through spiritual connection—our lives change their flow and move toward greater happiness and inner knowing.

  1. Begin by meditating on the desired outcome. See the image of your desire as already realized. Add the emotions of the accomplished desire. If you looked back at the fulfilled desire, how would you feel? Emotions are extremely important as they color the feeling of the desired outcome.
  2. Repeat the process above 2x daily. Spend ten minutes in meditation in the morning and evening. Notice your feelings after the meditation. (Your feelings may change from time to time. Often, they switch from energized to a feeling of “it’s not working.” It’s okay. Continue the process.)
  3. Use a laser sharp one minute visualization several times during the day. See the realized dream as completed. It’s helpful to do this if you find yourself thinking about the desire. It’s even more helpful to keep your mind OFF the desire at other times during the day.)
  4. Send pink light to your dream often. If you think about the dream, send light to it. Don’t think about it. Manifestation is more of a spiritual and feeling process. Thoughts about how, why, or when only slow it down.
  5. Have patience and faith. Manifestation can occur almost instantaneously or take a long time. Everyone’s process is different. (Don’t compare.) Manifestation also teaches us about our patterns, thoughts, and emotions that go in the opposite direction of the desire. It can take time to process the information and make subtle changes.

Using Your Intuitive Powers 

  • We can use the heightened ability of increased intuitive ability to “feel” our way through life. What is the best time to complete a task, run errands, or make a phone call? What is the difference in feeling our way through life and simply acting because we should?
  • In psychic/intuitive work, there is an art of connecting with others. We see and feel what they feel, but there is also a distance. The exchange takes place because both individuals agree to this. With the shift in energy, the distance between ourselves and others is diminished. We may feel everyone around us—and rather intensely. What do we notice about this?
  • Meditate on the image of silver lake, a sparkling stream, or the sea. Feel the motion of water and flow gently into your dreams and desires.
  • Air communicates thought and desire. Sit outside and look at the trees. Imagine the wind carrying thoughts and desires into the future.
  • Notice the feeling of happy alignment, which is light and free. Notice what lowers feelings/vibrations and feels heavy. Learn to release those thoughts and move into a high frequency visual.

Manifestation is important because it expands our gifts and heightens our vibration. It connects us with the One/All. When we manifest from the soul, we bring these subtle vibrations into the world for anyone who desires the same type of change. It is a learning process, which teaches us to determine the difference between our higher and lower vibrations while tapping into Source. Of all the aspects of manifestation, the most important is the feeling of connection with the universe and the higher self.

The process is never completed; it returns with a new wave of inspiration—a desire to create bigger and better things. This is the pattern of co-creation, of learning about the soul and its inner resonance.

Special Note: Our problems actually show us where we need more energy and a higher vibration. They give a point of focus for our manifestations. For example, we usually want to experience and feel the opposite way of how we experience a problem. This becomes the subject of a desire for manifestation. It’s how we use the fabric of light and darkness on the spiritual journey.

Slowing Our Pace and Focusing on Light

Image by Josephine Walls

Aspects of the “weather” appear as beautiful as the shades of summer with a Grand Trine (very harmonious) between Moon, Mercury, and Pluto—all placed in earth, providing needed grounding in a time of change. However, we also have tension caused by squares, which can make life feel erratic. (It’s helpful to choose a slower pace—and call on our inner resources without exhausting our reserves!) In this chart, the elements of fire, earth, water, and air are balanced, which is helpful!

Sun (life) is placed in Gemini, the sign of the twins, meaning moods and thoughts may alter quickly between light and dark. Gemini is an air sign with a fierce intellect that moves rapidly through skilled conversations and communications. It’s also good for short journeys, the perfect opening for summer vacations. (The symbol of twins represents duality, but we find wholeness centered in the heart–or within the inner self.)

Moon (inner self, emotions) sits in Virgo, stirring our need for order, perfectionism, and mysticism. Moon squares Mars (overall energy, assertion), which may create confusion between action and emotions, and Moon squares Saturn (time, karma), meaning our emotions and lessons are somewhat out of sync. Moon also trines (harmonious) Mercury (communications), and this aspect gives a bit of order to the flow of thoughts.

Mercury is placed in Taurus, a slow sign for the functioning of the mind. It can bring focus to finances, the earth, or nature, but it also brings hesitation and pauses when we’d prefer focus to walks outdoors. The placement is good for the body—and creating a good physical routine. (Mercury trines Pluto, which is helpful in discerning mysteries or putting bigger pieces of the puzzle together.)

Venus (feminine, love, art) is currently in Aries, a fire sign. It can exhibit stubbornness, passion, and a tendency to leap ahead in this position. Venus aspects almost every planet in this chart, indicating a need to consider what we want to experience in love and through love. Venus also trines (harmonious) Saturn (karma, time), indicating the possibility of learning from our past and creating a new path within the sphere of relationships in life.

Mars (masculine, assertion, overall energy) remains in Gemini, an air sign. Mars is all about direction, force, and passion. It has difficulty moving in a single direction when placed in air. (Air is everywhere, and Mars wants a directed passion.) It can cause tension between desires and responsibility—or a tendency to move between compulsive action and inertia.

Jupiter is in Libra, an air sign that continues to draw our imagination and thoughts to balance and beauty. For example, we utilize Jupiter’s energy when we see the world as better place or visualize harmony in the place of violence. It’s a beautiful placement, which helps us along through the bumpy stages of the New Age.

Neptune is aspected by the Sun and Moon. The Sun squares (tension) Neptune, and Moon (emotions) is opposite Neptune. This placement can make it difficult to discern between illusion and reality. It’s important to take to meditate before taking action or speaking our thoughts.

Venus, Jupiter, and Uranus square Pluto, enlarging the Uranus/Pluto square. Within this chart, they come together as an eccentric mix of energy, which can create distractions and small, upsetting events. (We’ve dealt with this since 2012.) Moon and Mercury trine Pluto, and these aspects soften the effect.

All in all, there are many nice aspects, including increased grounding with earth, communicating well with others, and movement on our path in the area of love. Of course, challenges remain, but it’s part of the New Age, and we’re becoming more adept as we move through the changes on the wings of time.

Planetary Change: A Super New Moon

The New Moon appears on Thurs, May 25 in the late afternoon. The New Moon represents the void in many ways-a time of reflection followed by plans for the next cycle in life. The moon sits in the space between darkness and light. (Despite advice of the almanac, anything sown on the New Moon grows very slowly-or not at all. It’s best to plan and wait.)
A Super Moon is obviously more powerful than the average New Moon, and this chart shows energy strongly placed in air (thought, communication) and  fire (passion, creativity) and Air brings beauty such as birds, butterflies, and clouds; it carries messages, but it’s not grounded. Fire makes everything move faster, and it feels intense!
With Sun, Moon, and Mars in Gemini, an air sign ruling language, words, and mentality, there is a focus on thought and communication. The mind moves very rapidly in Gemini, and part of the challenge lies in directing in thought and creating clear imagery.
(The mind is quiet when in alignment with the heart and higher consciousness.)
Sun, Moon, and Mars harmoniously trine Jupiter (good fortune) in Libra (balance/beauty), indicating the correct placement of the mind leads to positive results. (It’s important to use words in a way that creates beauty and balance-greater flow in life.)

Mercury (communications) sits in Taurus, an earth sign. This placement suggests the importance of feeling grounded, connected with nature, and speaking about practical issues from the heart. Mercury trines (harmonious) Pluto (regeneration), meaning it’s possible to regenerate both body and mind through communion with nature. (It’s also a wonderful way to release the information of the outer world and enjoy a slower, lovelier pace.)

Venus (feminine, abundance, beauty) is placed in Aries, a fire sign. Venus in Aries is passionate and fiery—much like a warrior. Venus opposes Jupiter (good fortune), which hints at the importance of a slower pace and waiting to act on passion. Venus also conjuncts (close to) Uranus (sudden change, quantum field), and this can make relationships and/or partnerships become volatile.

Venus, Saturn, and Uranus are all placed in fire signs, which can be volatile or creative. (It’s how we use the energy. Spiritual energy tends to connect into creativity. Lower emotions can lead to anger and outbursts.) Venus and Saturn (limitation, karma) are trine, which slows the motion of fire and helps with structure and cools emotion. Saturn trines Uranus (sudden change, new age.) Think of it as a meeting between the old and new worlds.

Mars sits in Gemini, which scatters mental energy throughout the general atmosphere. Mars is male energy, and it doesn’t like to think. It prefers strong action, and, now, it’s creating strong thoughts. (It’s helpful to reflect on the heart and the inner nature in these moments.) In short, think before speaking.

Sun, Moon, and Mercury square Neptune (illusion, mysticism), and this placement can make it easy to become lost in illusion—particularly with communication. It can be difficult to convey a point clearly and/or come to a clear understanding.

Venus, Jupiter, and Uranus square Pluto, increasing volatile emotions, strange energy, and the sensation of moving back and forth between the new world and the old world of the Piscean Age.  Uranus loves excitement, and the square shared with Venus and Jupiter, brings an uneasy feeling.

Overall, there is a great deal of exciting energy, but the lesson lies in listening to the inner self before speaking and taking action. It’s a wonderful time for writing and speaking, but it’s probably best to wait on discussing problems and making big changes. It’s wiser to contemplate nature and make gentle plans.
