7 Tips for Manifesting

Image by Laura Borealisihttps

1) Everyone is already manifesting. The first step is realizing how your thoughts, emotions, and visual imagery affect your life. (You can look at the positive and negative aspects of your life.) Meditation naturally alters the flow of visualization as well as the direction of your thoughts and emotions. It softens negative emotions and opens the heart to love. Conscious visualization activates the energy needed to create a desire.

2) You become more powerful when you consistently meditate and actively visualize. Your meditation and visualization practices actually direct the particles of energy around you into form. (When we don’t consciously direct energy, it takes the form of your lower thoughts.) Your thoughts and emotions take form more quickly and easily when you meditate. You also accumulate or store energy, which makes it easier to navigate through life.

3) Your desires come from a higher source. This higher source (God or the universe) wants you to have prosperity, abundance, love, vitality, and a greater spiritual connection. Creating the positive in your life is part of stepping into your true identity. If you are consistently meditating, you learn how love is the magical substance, which transforms your life–and the world.

4) Creating what you want or desire often means “seeing” the opposite of your current experience. For example, if you are unhappy in a particular area of life, you must see the exact opposite. If you experience financial loss, you see financial opportunities and gain. If you are broken-hearted, you visualize love coming from all directions in life. (It’s not enough to simply see it. You must feel and embrace it. You make the subjective experience more real than your actual experience.)

5) Light vibrates at a higher level than “real” life. The rules are different in the quantum field. Lost objects reappear in strange places. Money manifests. You can grow younger, and opportunities appear from nowhere.  The point is not asking how. Trust in the light and universal power. (You don’t need to know how. Stay with practice and act when prompted from the inner self.)

6) When you want to give up, you’re probably close to manifesting your desire. There is an energetic rule regarding manifestation. It takes a tremendous effort to manifest the last 5-10% of a desire. People often see success in the early phases, and they feel encouraged in the middle phase. They wonder if it will come into fruition in the last phase. It’s very important to persevere through the last phase. It’s the most difficult step. It requires a great deal of energy, but it is always worth it. And you learn it’s possible to endure through this phase, which typically seems to last forever!

7) After your desire manifests, you will feel happy and relieved. There is a temptation to put aside the spiritual work — to rest, and revel in the results. (Don’t give in.) Actually, it is the most important time to renew your spiritual practice because manifestation is ultimately about drawing closer to the universe and its secrets. Make the realization that happiness, which comes from the inner self, is greater than any material achievement.

Three Important Points

  1. Your overall energy, consciousness, and intent (placement of focus) influence your manifestation. For example, focusing intently on a desire is helpful. It works much better if you consistently work on creating higher vibrations such as love, kindness, and positive feelings.
  2. It’s also important to align your emotions with the desired outcome. Specific situations can lower our vibrations and invoke negative emotion. Overcoming negative emotional states is part of creating anything. (It’s okay to feel negative emotion. Just learn to work your way out of it.)
  3. Learning to see and feel your life in a different way creates change as well as eliciting help from the universe.

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.

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.

New Moon Forecast: Mystical Energy and Right Action

Image by Lucy Campbell

Every week or so, the motion of the planets alters our reception of physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual energy. (Think of the planets as filters or colored orbs.) They can bring harmony, conflict, or combinations of emotions, which bring struggle or ease. In general, my forecasts share the meanings of the combination of planetary energies. Honestly, no one knows exactly how we will feel the shifts because the planet is changing with the constant influx of new energies.

The New Moon appears on Saturday, March 17 at 9:11 a.m. During this time, we rest in the void and focus on the future while waiting for the light to return. It is good to center so we can find our way in the “dark.

Sun, Moon, Neptune, and Chiron are placed in Pisces, which offers nurturing, healing, mysticism, and unconditional love. With many planets in water, we can feel intense emotion, and it’s important to channel it into spiritual growth and devotion. Think of the fishes swimming in two directions.

With Mercury (communications), Venus (love), and Mars (action) in fire signs, we’ll receive a strong impulse to act on our thoughts and passions. But this forecast is about alignment and balance. It’s important to take (only) inspired action that comes from the inner self—and to balance it with periods of rest.

Sun (outer self) and Moon (inner self) in Pisces sit in a lovely trine with Jupiter (good fortune) in Scorpio. Trines are harmonious and creative; they also confer ease with manifestation. This aspect indicates a beneficial relationship between a focus on the mystical and a desire to see the truth beneath the surface—which is part of the spiritual quest. (This trine is formed by water and emphasizes the value of flowing, positive emotions.)

Mercury (communications), Venus (feminine, love, material possessions) and Uranus (spiritual change, awakening) are placed in Aries, a forceful fire sign, which focuses on moving forward—the opposite direction of Sun and Moon. Mercury (communications) is quick, brilliant, and active in Aries. This placement gives power with words, writing, and communication. It heightens the imagination and produces new ideas. Mercury in Aries is also passionate. It longs to move into new spaces of the mind and life. (Think of traveling to Mars. It’s a perfect Mercury in Aries idea.)

Venus (feminine, material possessions, love) is independent and bold in Aries. The “warrior” energies are not compatible with Venus’ desire to love, flow, and beautify. Venus in Aries can act in a self-centered way, preferring love for self to loving others. However, Aries is the first sign in the astrological wheel, indicating the possibility of beneficial, new beginnings in love, money, and self-awareness.

Mercury (communications, mind) and Venus (love, feminine) square Saturn, asking us to curb the desire to act with a sense of responsibility. It simply means to give pause to our strong thoughts and feelings about relationships and to think before acting.

Mars (assertiveness, male energy) is placed in Sagittarius, and it is adventurous in the sign of the archer. It’s expansive and confident, yearning for new frontiers. It amplifies our spiritual vision and gives power to delve into spiritual pursuits.

Sun (outer life) and Moon (inner life) square Mars (male energy, assertion) in Sagittarius. The square creates tension between the desire to absorb spiritual energy through a passive state (Pisces) and to seek wisdom through action and/or a quest. (We need both.)

Mars (masculine, action) trines Uranus in Aries, increasing the desire for action. It sharpens the instincts and gives the urge to focus on projects, work, and the body. Think of it as intensified drive. Again, the caution is to think before acting and to remember the value of contemplative thought and living.

Jupiter (good fortune, expansion) sits in Scorpio, a water sign that rules birth, death, sex, and inheritance. In this placement, Jupiter in Scorpio asks for review of obstacles in life and to move through our fears. The ultimate aim is expansion of all that is good in us. (Jupiter moved retrograde on March 12, allowing us to review goals and life progress to create greater abundance and expansion.)

Saturn is in Capricorn, the goat, and asks for review of the structures in our life and the creation of a new foundation in life. Everything looks and works differently in the New Age; it’s important to recreate ourselves as well. This also includes financial, physical, and social systems. Saturn also rules career and resources; it can be limiting or protective.

Mercury (communications, mind), Venus (love, feminine), and Uranus (awakening, sudden change) square Pluto (regeneration, underworld). These squares indicate the importance of observing the desire for motion and action with the structure of concrete change that supports the growth of the inner self. (Brilliant, new ideas are only helpful when they work for the good of self.)

The square between Uranus and Pluto continues for a few more months. It continually moves between the ecstatic sensation of awakening and the darkness of the underworld. When we decide to move through our underlying fears, life changes quite drastically—and in a very positive sense.

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.

Full Moon Forecast

Image by Josephine Wall

 

The full moon appears at 7:51 pm on March 1. The full moon increases growth, fruition, and manifestation. It heightens our sensations and emotions as well as our ability to visual and create change. (It’s interesting to note that emotions and energy increase around the new moon and full moon as we become more sensitive to light.)

Many planets–Sun (outer life), Mercury (communications), Venus (love), Neptune (mysticism), and Chiron (wounded healer)—are placed in Pisces, a water sign. Pisces is the sign of fishes swimming in opposite directions. The sign of Pisces represents love, understanding, and selflessness. On the opposite duality, Pisces can bring an urge to do nothing but float and escape reality—or experience the sensation of becoming a martyr and/or victim.

Pisces can also represent an “old” soul (as most of us are) and karma. Obviously, five planets in Pisces can significantly increase the experience of emotion. In this case, emotion relates to karmic and habitual patterns, the ability to pause and glimpse a pattern—or observe and direct energy in a new way. (It’s always a challenge, and other aspects such as squares with Mars intensify it.)

Fortunately, Moon is placed in Virgo, an earth sign that is grounded and discriminating. It heightens our ability to think, differentiate, and heal. Moon trines (harmonious) Saturn (karma) and Uranus (change, new age), which aids in grounding, creating balanced ideas, and understanding our karma on a physical level. (For example, understanding the stimuli/events that contribute to sleeplessness, unhappiness, poor diet, etc.)

Mercury (communications) is placed in Pisces, which can lead to connection with our dreams and the cosmos—or heightened emotion from negative thoughts. Like fishes swimming in opposite directions, it can lead us to a higher or lower dimension. It conjuncts (close to) Venus (feminine, relationships), and it can heighten our intelligence about love—and loving ourselves. The trine (harmonious) with Jupiter (good fortune expansion) indicates our dreaminess and focus on love can lead to good fortune.

Venus (love, material possessions) is exalted in Pisces, and it can give a feeling of connection and oneness. It can also heighten emotions. Venus trines (harmonious) Jupiter, indicating this state of oneness and universal love can bring good fortune and expand the better aspects of life, Venus conjuncts (close to) Neptune (mysticism, illusion), heightening the odd feeling of moving in and out of reality—a strange beautiful, dreamy feeling.

Mars (action, masculine) is well placed in the fire sign of Sagittarius, but it simply doesn’t work with the rest of the chart. Sun (outer life), Mercury (communications), Venus (love, relationships) square (create tension) with Mars. Mars, placed in a fire sign, wants bold action, and it is frustrated by the flowing, lovely sensation of Pisces.

Additionally, Mars squares Neptune (mysticism, illusion) and Chiron (the wounded healer.) It does trine (harmonious) Uranus, but it’s difficult to take action on the innovative ideas, delivered by Uranus. The challenge lies in knowing frustrations come and go. It’s not necessary to act and/or express emotion in the moment.

Jupiter in Scorpio (good fortune) trines (harmonious) Neptune (illusion, mysticism) and Chiron (the wounded healer), adding positive energies to the chart. (There are a total of 4 trines with Jupiter, which expands opportunity and can lead to greater success.)

Six planets aspect Neptune (mysticism, illusion), which rules Pisces.  Sun, Mercury, and Venus are conjunct (close to), heightening the Piscean influence. Moon in Virgo opposes Neptune, indicating the need to discriminate emotionally between spiritual states and illusion. Mercury squares Neptune, confusing the issue and clouding our ability to differentiate truth and illusion, and Jupiter’s trine with Neptune, increases positive energy and a state of hopefulness.

Uranus (sudden change, awakening) will change signs in May, and this shift can feel like Mercury retrograde when it slows electronics and/or creates small inconveniences. It can also make emotions and thoughts oscillate from low to high—and vice versa. (Fortunately, Uranus responds quickly to positive visualization.) Uranus remains square Pluto as it has periodically since 2012.

Notes:

  • Many planets in Pisces can align the mind and emotions with higher love and mysticism—or exacerbate lower emotions and anxious thoughts. We become more intuitive with many planets in Pisces.
  • The impetus of the chart points to overcoming karmic patterns of thought and emotion. The goal is finding “love” and greater universal connection.
  • Mercury (communication) and Venus (love) harmoniously trine Jupiter (good fortune), meaning thoughts and feelings, which focus on love can transmute negativity more easily and bring alignment with success and good fortune.
  • Mars (action) squares many of the Piscean planets, which can cause anger and other low level emotions. Mars (the desire to act) is frustrated by the squares. (We can’t change anything until we know what bothers us. Make a list of frustrations and continue to work on earlier plans. We can talk and make new plans later when Mars is stronger.)
  • An exciting aspect of the chart lies in the power of water (feminine, emotion) to help change the flow of life by finding our universal connection.
