A Time of Awakening

 

Manifestation is important because it teaches about how we perceive and live life. When we focus on a heart felt desire, we invoke the universe and the inner self.

  1. Everyone is already manifesting the material of their consciousness  through their experience of “reality.” We are limited by our perceptions and beliefs about life as well as the people in our lives; however, it’s possible to transcend those limits and create big, happy visions. Basically, this involves awakening and rewriting our inner script of beliefs, thoughts, and emotions. When we rewrite our perception of reality, it changes.
  2. Everyone wants financial prosperity, loving relationships, a healthy body, and a deep spiritual connection that provides accurate answers. Meditation and visualization can lead us to the right steps, and the practice completes much of the work on the invisible plane. (In other words, an occurrence or dream takes place much more quickly. We find the right job quickly instead of applying for ten. We visualize meeting the right people, and they appear.)
  3. Action is more effective when accompanied by meditation and visualization. It also requires less effort. Athletes and millionaires use these techniques of visualizing their desired reality in detail. The alteration in overall energy is even more profound when the visualization is prompted by a desire for connection with the inner self. Both practices create results, but universal connection alters everything in our lives.
  4. We meet our resistance within our self. We discover an opposite self, who doesn’t want the manifestation, takes steps in the opposite way, and wants to stay the same. We rewrite the “program” or pattern through visualization, observation, and learning to think and feel new thoughts and emotions. (We also learn to change our personal identity from the person who can’t to one who can.)
  5. Life becomes more exciting through these discoveries. As we learn to change lower patterns into patterns of success, we become enthusiastic about life. We naturally make small adjustments such as altering traffic, wishing good things for others, or seeing more beauty in life. (This changes our world—and the world around us.)
  6. Our vision of our reality and the world changes. We begin to understand how our ‘reality” responds to our thoughts and emotions. We also learn how to change our perception of life because we understand the seeing the “goodness” is part of what brings it into our lives.
  7. We naturally live on a higher vibration as a result of participating in manifestation. We begin to see problems as areas of life, which require a higher frequency, meditation, or inspired action. We also begin to “know” that other people are doing the same thing. It’s how we meet our True Self through meditation–and connect with others who align with the universe in the same beautiful way.

Eight Books for Soulful Work

Image by Kerry Miller

 

Reading books about spirituality can bring transformation. It can be particularly useful to read before sleeping and to ask for dreams to help interpret/understand the material.
  1. The first book is part of a promotion, and it has a wonderful title, Relationship Magic – Waking up Together. Author Guy Finley writes about the magic of moving beyond limitation in relationships through new dialog and realizations. (Obviously, the book is for couples seeking growth.) Several gifts are offered with his release/promotion date (today) Click here to access    (Full disclosure: I am not an affiliate. I read only one chapter, but I was impressed with his techniques, which offer the possibility of altering emotions and expanding communication.)
  2. Grandmothers Counsel the World  by Carol Schaefer contains profound imagery and thoughts from the grandmothers of many indigenous societies and their view of life. It emphasizes our relationship with nature, the heartbeat of the earth, and the value of a slower life from a feminine perspective.
  3. The Afterlife of Billy Fingers by Annie Kagan was released a few years ago, and it remains one of the best descriptions of after life experience. Kagan was contacted by her brother after his death and transcribed her perceptions and his “truths”. The book also has lovely words about lessons on earth – and how they count more than we think.
  4. Veronika Decides to Dieby Paulo Coelho relates the story of a young woman who thinks she has nothing left in life. Veronika attempts suicide, finds herself in a mental ward, and discovers love and beauty of life. The book is filled with tales of characters and exquisite descriptions. In the end, it’s an uplifting and spiritual book. (Coelho hints that the book is based partially on personal experience.)
  5. The Intention Experiment by Lynne McTaggert is a wonderful example of the author’s ability to combine scientific and New Age information in an interesting format. The Intention Experiment explores the idea of how thoughts can be used to change our lives and the world.
  6. The War of Artby Steven Pressfield presents an artistic (and very honest) perspective of how to move through blocks and limitations, using the writer’s experience as a guide. It’s a tiny book but full of amazing insights.
  7. Silent Power by Stuart Wilde tells how to accumulate spiritual power and energy through observation. It also tells how to develop intuitive abilities through a state of stillness. It’s a short, simple, and effective book.
  8. Working with Angels, Fairies, and Nature Spirits by William Bloom is a fabulous read for those who want to contact elementals and/or receive help from nature and plants. The book contains many types of exercises along with detailed guidance.

Talking with Animals!

 

Animals compose an exquisite part of life on our planet. Birds fill the air with sweet songs, and deer, bear, and foxes live among the forests.  Wild animals portray elements of the soul in indigenous cultures, and domestic animals help with daily life.

All animals have a voice; they speak from the heart. Hearing and speaking through the heart intuitively is the best communication, but there are many ways to begin. (Most people are unaware of how often they accurately hear their pets.)

In general, domestic animals come into our lives to help, calm emotion, and teach us to heal. They are quite aware of energy. Cats, dogs, horses, and most animals can see and respond to color. Their world – and perceptions – are quite different from generally accepted “truth”.

Here are a few discoveries, followed by tips for communicating with a pet.

  1. Cats and dogs actually clear your negative energy. When your energy is toxic, they absorb and transmute it. (Cats prefer negative energy and thrive on it. They often sleep on a sore part of the body, electrical devices, or sleep near the computer. Dogs prefer positive energy and usually sleep in a space that is higher in energy.)
  2. Dogs, cats, and horses respond strongly to color. Changing the color of a food bowl, collar, leash, or cushion can positively shift their energy.
  3. Animals are often a reflection of your energy, acting out your anxiety, depression, or grief. When we change our vibration, they do the same. (Some animals have been traumatized, and their behavior results from previous events.)
  4. Like most beings on the planet, animals love being told that they’re beautiful and adored. They also want recognition when they behave correctly.
  5. Horses have a very long memory and love stories as well as exciting, pleasurable events. (Think new saddle or bridle and riding with friends.)

Communicating with Your Pet

  1. When you fill the water bowl, decide to walk the dog, or call the cat, your pet is probably projecting the image or feeling. Notice the difference between automatic action and a sudden desire to take care of your pet.
  2. Dogs and cats respond well to “pictures”. It’s easier for them to understand. See the dog sitting before you say the command. See the outdoor cat at the door when you can’t find it. Imagine the animals coming to you before you call. (Some pets speak English better than others, but they all speak in imagery – or a sharp focus on whatever you want to communicate.)
  3. Initially, it’s wise to work with only one or two images. For example, see the dog running and playing outside – or coming to you. Try to create a feeling of happiness along with the image.
  4. When a pet responds to an image, praise them so they understand that you are communicating with them. (Think of how many thoughts and images you create each day!) Ask them to let you know how they feel. If you receive impressions, say them aloud.
  5. When you feel happy and light, express your pleasure so your animals can enjoy it with you. Odd as it sounds, this is one of the best ways of creating an intuitive bond with a pet.
  6. After meditation or a walk, think about your heart connecting with your pet’s heart. Think about how much you love them, and say it in words. (Love is the essence of all higher communication.)

New Moon Forecast: Finding More Love

 

The New Moon appears on October 8, and its energy will extend for 10-14 days. It’s truly an interesting chart with an emphasis on love overcoming darkness – and balancing fluctuating energy. Sun, Moon, and Mercury in Libra square Pluto, the dark planet that is about power, control, and transmutation, and Venus is retrograde through November 16.

There are two views of life. The first involves the obtainment of abundance and pleasure on the material level; the second speaks about inner happiness and the pursuit of the soul. The soul journey is about traveling through Plutonian darkness, discovering the truth, and using it to transmute life into higher level.

Ruled by Venus, Libra is a kind and gentle sign. Libra bestows a romantic vibration; they love beauty, harmony, and peace. They are often diplomatic, just, and fair. Libra is represented by the scales, and they can often be unreliable as their energy moves up and down with small changes and events. They may also have difficulty with decisions.

Venus in Scorpio wants to know the truth (about everything, particularly feelings associated with love) while Sun in Libra desires light, peaceful sensations of harmony and joy. Venus in retrograde pulls in strange feelings about love, friends from the past (which is good), and the desire for healing the past to create deeper spiritual/personal connection.

Venus is usually associated with the happy, pleasant aspects of life such as loving relationships, beauty (spiritual and aesthetic), and material possessions. When Venus is retrograde, it’s about going deeper to discover what prevents creating more goodness as well as how to find the balance of pleasure on a soul level. (It’s also NOT time to change your hair, overall look, or do anything dramatic–or fall in love.)

The quest is about examining the strange feelings that occur in relationships when we know everything is not exactly right. It’s about seeing partnerships and relationships through eye of the inner self to discover true alignment with the heart. (If we stay with people who don’t want to grow, we can’t grow. If we have a soul contract with a person, we need boundaries.) We can reevaluate boundaries and look for a lighter feeling about love, and ask for change when we can’t find the strength.

Here’s the interesting part. Pluto holds deep, dark secrets, but it also gives the power of strength and commitment to move through blocks and hidden issues from the past.  Sun, Moon and Mercury form squares, which increase our desire to perceive the hidden information that slows our growth. However, we have use love to complete the journey. (It’s not about what’s bad or good. It’s about finding the energetic truth of self and moving into alignment with it.)

If we complete the journey, there’s more passion, love, and an end to old soul contracts that bind us to behavior, which is exhibited as patterns. It creates more harmony and airs tired emotions. The shift opens us to connections with people who want to grow and share their hearts and inner peace.

Let’s look at the remainder of the chart. Mars is in Aquarius, creating an odd mix of focused thought and fixed emotion. On the positive, it trines the Sun and Moon, allowing for harmony with life, emotion, and thoughts. Mars is passion, action, and assertion, and it squares Uranus, causing outbursts of anger and strong emotions around many issues. (We’ve dealt with it throughout the year, and the best attitude is neutralize, examine, and tone it down before taking action.)

Mercury (thought, communications) and Venus (relationships) oppose Uranus (sudden change, awakening). The energy can take us off course into sharp, sudden feelings and thoughts, creating erratic change, or we can observe (briefly) by noticing the two sides of the self, and this is part of the process of awakening. (Only the inner self can observe, and this brings us back into the present moment with greater knowing.)

Neptune

Venus trines Neptune (mysticism, illusion), which heightens intuition and the ability to perceive beauty in life. It also opens the door to perceptions about the unseen, mystical world. Jupiter (good fortune) trines Neptune, bringing a harmonious feeling about resolving issues from the past to create a better future. The two positive aspects encourage taking time to see the beauty of love, spirituality, and the incredible mix of  polar forces on this planet – and how we grow from them.

Notes:

  • New Moons bring a period of void when life in nature remains very quiet for 2-3 days. (I know from observation of nature and gardening.) It’s a time for reflection before moving forward.
  • Sun (life), Moon (emotions), and Mercury (communications, mind) are in Libra, making life seem very lovely with a balance of light and shadows. There is a strong tendency to desire harmony and balance.
  • Venus is retrograde through Nov. 16. Her energy is very different from the prevalent Libran energy. Venus in Scorpio wants to know the truth about relationships and love. It’s important to re-evaluate relationships at an energetic level. What’s the exchange of energy? Is a relationship fulfilling or depleting? Is it the result of a soul contract? If so, do both parties want growth? Where are boundaries needed?
  • Oddly, the universe is strangely insistent about the quality of relationships and the depth of love. It’s a difficult topic for humans – and an important area of inner growth.
  • Sun, Moon, and Mercury square Pluto (subconscious, transmutation), which brings hidden darkness to the surface. When we are willing to look at our own darkness, we can transmute it.
  • The next few weeks will be about balancing harmony, pleasure, and love with energetic truth hidden beneath the surface. The goal is a gestalt moment that opens consciousness to greater love and alters our relationship(s) with those who hold us back.

Sabian Symbols

Sun and Moon are on Libra 16, “After the Storms of Winter, A Boat Landing Stands in Need of Reconstruction”.  The symbol refers to quieter weather, associated with spring and growth, which differs from the “storm” of eclipses and retrograde planets in recent months. Boat landings are a place where to find safe harbor after time spent on water, and there is a need to make it secure and solid.

Mercury is on Libra 29. Mercury is thought and communication, and it speaks about “Mankind’s Vast Enduring Effort for Knowledge Transferable from Generation to Generation.” On the highest level, it’s about consciously awakening, which connects us to universal knowledge. This pursuit brings strength, kindness, and the use of light to heal, build, and change life.

Venus sits on Scorpio 11, “A Drowning Man Is Being Rescued.” It seems an apt for a retrograde Venus when we’re asked to review our past (and past lives) and lift ourselves into higher emotions and a better life.

Water is emotion in metaphysics, and we lift ourselves into clean, flowing water (or love) by rising above the murky issues of relationships and into a state of clear consciousness.

Mars is placed on Aquarius 10, “A Man Who Had for a Time Become the Embodiment of an Ideal Is Made to Realize that as a Person He Is Not This Ideal.” Ultimately, we can only become “ourselves”; it’s impossible to become an ideal or reflection of anything in the world. We’re simply an individual expression of a beautiful, perfect universal force, and this realization sets us free.

Jupiter sits on Scorpio 24, “Crowds Coming Down the Mountain to Listen to One Inspired Man”. The image depicts the sharing of a gift or wisdom with a group of people. There are two aspects to the image. One is the speaker who gives, and the other is the crowd, who receives.

It may be time to share a gift, receive wisdom from another person, or decide to listen to our inner voice.

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.

Autumn Equinox Forecast

 

The autumn equinox indicates the energetic trend for the next 3 months. It occurs on Saturday, Sept. 22.  It’s a beautiful time of year when the Sun moves into Libra, a planet ruled by Venus, that brings beauty, balance, and light. 

Overall, the chart presents challenges with a T-square (Sun/Mercury, Saturn and Chiron) and the continuation of the Mars/Uranus square. More importantly, it presents divine guidance and insights through beautiful trines, which give encouragement and mystical help. (For many, life may have felt heavy and/challenging in the past few weeks, but this chart provides energies to rise to the next level of personal/spiritual development.)

The Sun is in the last degrees of Virgo but will soon move into Libra, the sign of balance, beauty, and art. The Sun (life, light) and Mercury (communication) in Libra are conjunct (closely placed), amplifying our ability to access the higher mind through both logic and creativity. Sun trines Mars (action, male), which activates the proper use of physical energy through action, thought, and word. Sun’s square with Saturn (karma) activates motion between our memories and patterns of the past and our desire to create a more positive future. (We’ll move between the 2 states.)

Moon (emotions, inner self) is beautifully placed in Pisces, a water sign. The Moon trines Venus in Scorpio, allowing positive, feminine emotions, which aid in finding the flow in life. Moon sextiles Saturn (the past) and Uranus (sudden change, awakening), bringing together the two aspects of life in synchronous way. Moon conjuncts (close to) Neptune in Pisces, and this heightens the ability to glimpse the unseen world, intensifies night dreams, and increases artistic ability and insight.

Mercury (communications) sits in Libra, encouraging reflection and balance. It trines (harmonious) Mars, encouraging proper, enlightened action that encompasses thought about all sides of problems and issues. Mercury squares (tension) Saturn, asking for consideration of old karmic debts and patterns, which can cloud perception and depth of thought.

Venus (love, relationships) is placed in Scorpio; it intensifies all emotions about relationships of every type. (Passion is wonderful when it is correctly directed.) Venus squares (tension) Mars, increasing the possibility of misunderstandings in relationships and necessitating the pause, generated by clear thought. Venus opposes Uranus (sudden change, awakening), inciting strong thoughts, emotions, and possibly actions based on old patterns – or realizations, which can give grace to recognize and release them. Venus trines (harmonious) Neptune (mysticism, idealism), opening consciousness to ideals and ideas based on intuitively perceived information.

Mars (action, male) sits in Aquarius, emphasizing thought, fixed perceptions, and connection with humanity. Mars squares Uranus (sudden change, awakening), which can accelerate tendencies to act and/or speak strongly about personal beliefs and feelings. It can also teach us to hold back and consider the validity of perpetual responses – and create new perceptions based on universal truth.

Jupiter (good fortune) is in Scorpio, a magnetic, intuitive water sign. In this position, Jupiter urges us to find the truth behind repetitive situations to find good fortune in life. Jupiter trines (harmonious) Neptune, encouraging and accentuating the importance of intuitively seeking answers behind the “veil”. The aspect also gives hope and encouragement to seekers.

Neptune (mysticism, illusion) is beautifully highlighted in this chart. The Moon conjuncts (close) Neptune, intensifying our ability to perceive the mystical world. Venus (love) and Jupiter (good fortune) trine Neptune, indicating our most desirable answers can be found through meditation, beauty, and the contemplation of love. Jupiter (good fortune) and Neptune (mysticism) are sextile Pluto (subconscious). The aspects hint at ease with finding subconscious or hidden truths more easily than usual as we continue on our spiritual quest.

T-Square with Sun/Mercury, Saturn, and Chiron

Sun (life) and Mercury (thought) are opposite Chiron, which encourages looking at old wounds when focusing on improvement in life. Jupiter trines (harmonious) Chiron, creating ease with the process, and Saturn (karma) squares Chiron, indicating the need for more integration of the wounded self.  Sun/Mercury square (tension) Saturn, which creates conflict between life/higher mind and patterns/circumstances based on the past. Sun/Mercury square Chiron, pointing to old wounds, which require clearing. Saturn opposes Chiron, intensifying the presence and feelings of the past, which were associated with the initial pain. (Positively speaking, T-squares exert pressure that can lead to clearing blocks and obstacles.)

 

Tips:

  1. Beautiful, feminine energy is exuded through aspects with Moon, Venus, and Neptune. These three feminine planets are placed in water, soothing emotion through spiritual vibrations. Meditation, focusing on angels, and recording dreams can help with attuning to the mystical energies presented in the chart.
  2. Mars (male) square Uranus (sudden change, awakening) is the aspect, which brought irritated and angry feelings to the surface – and desire for action – throughout the summer. In this chart, it is softened by a trine with the Sun and Mercury. (Sun and Mercury send light and the wisdom of the higher mind to rowdy Mars, lord of action and disputes.)
  3. A T-square places intense pressure on our consciousness to realize the patterns caused by old wounds and karma. When we realize the truth about the hurt and pain in our past – which is energetic at its root – it’s possible to change how we experience life. This shift provides freedom for growth.
  4. Neptune (mysticism, idealism) is beautifully placed in the chart. It can connect us to the creative imagination, spiritual ideals, or simply the loveliness of the world.
  5. The elements (fire, air, water, and earth) are fairly well distributed with a lack of fire, but the energy should feel much better than earlier in the month. The difficulties in the chart are met with equivalent, positive, and spiritual forces. (The universe supports us through the next shift.)

Message from the Wolves

 

From the forests, mountains, and rivers, we call to your soul. Listen to us and find your way. Listen to the trees, the clouds, and the sky. The earth speaks, too, and you can hear it through your feet.

We no longer ask you to commune with nature. For those of you who are awake, you hear her. You feel the tremble of the earth as she moves, and you hear the speaking of seas through their eternal motion.

At the present, you are between worlds – between the new and old worlds. You move into the new world when aligned with your true presence, the one to which we speak at this time. You step back into the old world when you argue, indulge in lower emotions, and forget who you are. (Yes, we know this is part of a very old process, but it is time to move beyond it.)

Everything we know is about energy, the life force that moves through the physical and the spiritual force that animates it. When you are aligned with the physical and spiritual worlds, there is much magic, and the magic is amplified by specific points of the earth as well as the presence of creatures, specifically wild ones. (Indigenous cultures have named these energies, giving clues and hints.)

When we walk through the world, the motion of trees tells us where to go. And clouds in the sky act as pointers for direction. The energy patterns of the earth appear to us as we run through the woods. The stars, clouds, and moon guide us at night.

Yes, it is very different in the human world. We hear your voices, and understand the complexity of your lives.  It’s helpful to think about what you ask for in life. For example, you rarely ask for connection with your inner self or reconnection with your power. With power, you can create what you want and know how to do it. (This is more important than having what you want – for it will often change as your perception expands.)

If you want to step into the new world to hear animals and plants and see the beauty of the world, we recommend asking for wiser outcomes such as hearing your inner voice, learning to use your gifts, and gaining greater awareness of the connection with the all. Consider for a moment if you truly learned to use your gift of manifestation by seeing life differently.

This is a greater power than asking for or receiving prosperity. Asking to open your heart to love and companionship may be more of gift than finding a perfect partner. (Of course, the outcome and gift are related.)

It’s also important to look at energy. Energy rightfully placed is true power. Notice how you become tired and who takes your energy. Notice how energy soars when you are happy or in the right place at the right time.

The “Awakening” or event is not exactly what you think. One by one, you cross into the zone of the spiritual or new world where you become very intuitive or powerful. Perhaps, you see, sense, or feel energies, messages, and intuitions that are not usually there.

If you consciously repeat this experiment, you build a bridge to the “other” world. When many individuals have these experiences, it builds a bridge for others to cross. In this way, many individuals awaken as a group at one time, but it occurs through the personal work of individuals.

Some of you cross the bridge of consciousness frequently, and you know when this happens for you are embraced by life and rewarded by a flow of events, which feels very different from daily consciousness. For others, it occurs in dreams or in nature. Yet, we know when you are here with us.

The “real” world is astonishingly beautiful, and we ask you to walk there with us in deep, awakened consciousness where the impossible is made possible. Everything on the earth works quite differently when you are in an altered state of consciousness.

You become quite magical, and the earth works with you. The earth becomes light, malleable, and supportive. There is only love.

We share our thoughts and methods below.

  1. It’s helpful to affirm your readiness for the new world. At this point, they overlap but not always. Choose the placement of your thoughts and feelings. Review your direction and create visuals that align with it. (It’s helpful to do this outdoors or to sense the placement of trees or sky.)
  2. Move out of negativity. See the world as it should be. In the beginning, there was one, long spring-like season. The seasons are shifting now, and the earth is changing. Try to see the beauty and refrain projecting the image of a dying world. (It’s not.)
  3. Rephrase your life. Use new words. See the good that has traveled within you for lifetimes. Focusing on this goodness opens your powers. Use your time to learn how to change the flow of life. (If you don’t like something, change it or see it differently.)
  4. Ask your heart what it wants. Ask your heart what brings happiness. Follow your happiness. (Happiness is not doing “nothing”. Activity flows out of happiness as do periods of profound rest with connection with the physical and spiritual worlds.)
  5. Visit with the earth.  Watch the motion of leaves, notice how the wind changes its smell, and look at the colors in the grass. A thousand stories lie undisturbed in the substance in the lawn.
  6. Flow into art. Create beautiful objects—paint, draw, write. Make a space for the expression of your heart and soul.
  7. Remember how it was in the Beginning when the earth sighed with pleasure when she felt your feet, and flowers bloomed as you walked by. In this time, we walked at your side, and we pray you remember your remarkable power.

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.
