Alright. The first thing that I am going to do is suggest that you wear your aura as a very large vortex. You could essentially match the solar winds and the solar energies and the storm patterns and what not by wearing a similar pattern in the auric field. It is a way of synchronizing with nature and Creation, all of Creation really. So make the aura a very large vortex.
Now this week we have the Full Moon of Humanity combined with the Vesak Eastern Buddhist Birthday celebration, which to me is not the same date as the esoteric Wesak, which is the Great White Brotherhood teachings. That was the last Full Moon.
However we do have with the Full Moon a very powerful eclipse and it is the third eclipse in a one month period. So on this one I am going to say it is “leap and the net will appear”.
Blessings my beautiful friend, It’s such an honor to connect with you again.
Have you noticed the shift that took place in these past few weeks within and all around us? Ever since the days leading up to the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse back on April 25th, something has changed. Many people are feeling guided more than ever to reinvent themselves in a way that is aligned with a higher vision they have of themselves.
A big part of the reinvention happening includes letting go of everything in our lives that no longer contributes to our highest vision. This also includes letting go of the relationships that we allowed to stifle us in any way. Many of us have a tendency to give everyone we meet the benefit of the doubt, however when we begin to allow this to cloud us from the clarity of our intuition, it’s most definitely time to release and let go. Going against our intuition is the biggest reason why so many are not experiencing the well-being they know is possible.
Letting go of relationships that no longer serve our greatest good does not mean that we love these beings any less, it just means we are no longer contributing to the stories they have created motivated by fear, lack and separation.
In fact, letting go of these types of relationships has the potential to empower the people we release out of their stories, and into an awakening awareness of their omnipotent selves. So if you are feeling enough is enough, now is the time to give yourself permission to surround yourself with people, places and things that support you in living your highest vision.
The Astrology of May features Mercury, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto plus two eclipses. Mercury runs through Taurus during the first part of May, being conjunct to the May 9th Solar Eclipse taking place in the 20th degree of that sign, which also conjuncts the South Node of the Moon and makes a quintile aspect to idealistic Neptune. Mercury then enters Gemini, the sign of its rulership, on the 15th, just in time to host the Sun for the powerful Gemini-SagittariusFull Moon and Lunar Eclipse of May 24th, the third eclipse in just this one thirty-day period, encouraging us to think as well as feel our way through. Eclipses are more intense lunations — as recent headlines also indicate — making these transformative times that we are currently managing to live through even more poignant and accelerating the drum beat of change.
The big news this month is the converging of Uranus and Pluto for their third encounter of the close kind. This happens on May 20th. There were two previous exact hits last year of their revolutionary and pressure-packed square, out of a total of seven, with reverberations echoing down to the final years of these “Turbulent Teens.” We are, all of us, caught up in the vice of change and we might as well acknowledge this simple and straightforward fact. No one will emerge in the same condition as they started. The culture itself will undergo massive and radical transformation before we are finished, or else we are finished in quite another sense of the word. We must hang together now in collective action that is both local and ultimately global, or we will dangle separately.
Hi everyone, things are in swing! At the Spring Equinox on March 21st, we experienced an influx of powerful and fiery Aries energy. As Aries rushed in, the zodiacal power balance shifted from the foggy, mystical, escapist and sublime Piscean energies we were swimming in during February and most of March. This incoming energy was an sounding note for a potent eclipse portal, which will occur from April 25 - May 25, 2013
This eclipse portal has 3 eclipses. Eclipses usually come in pairs, but sometimes they do occur in 3′s. The portal opens gently, subtly with a faint Partial Lunar Eclipse on April 25; and it closes quietly as well, with another faint eclipse – a Penumbral Lunar Eclipse – on May 25.
The Annular Solar Eclipse in the middle of this portal (on May 9) is the power pivot. An Annular Solar Eclipse is often called a ‘Ring of Fire‘ Eclipse – a blazing diamond ring of solar fire appears around the sun. It is a significant event both astrologically and astronomically. You may recall the Pleiadean Annular Solar Eclipse on May 20, 2012 – many of us are still talking about the consciousness expansion associated with that eclipse. (Click here for my newsletter on last year’s ’Ring of Fire’ Pleaidean eclipse:http://ow.ly/k3fPn )
Just a quick heads up: today’s eclipse and the next three days offer an exceptional window of opportunity to off-load a bunch of old junk — especially past life junk. I’ve noticed this in myself and during some sessions this week: the veils between lifetimes are particularly thin right now. If you’re experiencing major emotional or physical symptoms that have you stopped in your tracks, use that pause to inquire, “Is this even related to my current lifetime?!” Notice your body’s response. If you feel an immediate shift of the energy, a lightening of your load, or prickles of relief and hope, I encourage you to send that baggage off with the Universal Bellhop.
You are a VIP in your own life … this life … and you have arrived! Kick off your shoes, fluff up your pillow, open the curtains, and smile at your good fortune. If the Universal Bellhop loses your luggage, no worries there. You didn’t want that old junk anyway, did you? Go ahead, open the closet in your penthouse suite. Everything there’s a perfect fit for your new, healthy body. Take a deep breath and let your heart feel glad. Savor your new surroundings while you contemplate what “home” means. You’re not quite there yet, but you’ve moved out of the old digs. No need to drag the past — even the lengthy, distant past — around with you anymore.
(Note: I’ve learned that when I “lose” the daily report while trying to publish it to the web, it’s a particularly effective one, one that those who stand opposed to what I am doing attempt to block. I had a beautiful report written about how to handle the energy of the Full Moon. I reveal this because I think it is enlightening. The second go-round, the report here, is not beautifully written. Overall, this f’ing pisses me off and believe me, things are going to f’ing piss you off this Full Moon, too! But we are going to find grace, even though we may curse at first. Herein lies the lesson.)
Today’s Full Moon conjunct the Black Moon and Jupiter has a way of taking us down – far down – and this report is deep. But if you have read my book on the Black Moon, you know that the Black Moon is generally misunderstood as a “bad” thing.
It’s much more complex than that. The Black Moon encapsulates the fall and rise of the mythical phoenix. It descends in fire and rises from its ashes. Today is the descent.The heaviness and “darkness” of the energy will be strongest today, but it will linger to some degree throughout the Full Moon phase. There is only one way to handle this energy: surrender to it and work with it.
At this stage of our month-long journey (vision quest) we find ourselves at midnight, waiting for the Full Moon to enlighten the night and help us see our way. The Black Moon and Jupiter, as gatekeepers on the journey, halt us. They tell us there is more to gather before we move on. This is not comfortable and it is going to test the skills of spiritual warriors/wise owls. Instead of stepping back, going inside our tree and observing, this energy forces us to perch high on a bare branch and blanket ourselves in the night.
This is another very significant week astrologically as we approach the full moon lunar eclipse on Wednesday, as a series of powerful conjunctions align in what we call a yod or “finger of fate” pattern. An exact conjunction of Mars and Pluto in Capricorn makes a sextile aspect to Venus and Saturn conjunct in Scorpio, both conjunctions form quincunx aspects to the Moon, which itself is in a conjunction with Jupiter in Gemini. The figure suggests that we are being stretched to integrate a new way of understanding, something that seems still just out of our grasp, and requires significant adjustment or re-alignment.
Saturn-Venus-Mercury alignment this week
With Venus, Mars and the Moon involved this is likely be experienced most acutely within relationships. A Mars-Pluto conjunction is very tense and will bring up uncomfortable aspects of the shadow, especially in Capricorn where Mars is so strong. Venus-Saturn are conjunct which tends to test relationships, and sexual dynamics may be charged with shadow energy and need to be channelled mindfully, so as not to be destructive, particularly as the conjunction occurs in the sign of Scorpio, the sign that Mars and Pluto rule. This creates what we call a “reception” between the planets involved in this aspect and intensifies the contact. The eclipse itself, a partial one, occurs in the Hyades cluster of stars around the face of Taurus the bull, a particularly sensitive placement which could represent the possibility of catharsis. The Mars-Pluto conjunction is with the star cluster Facies, in the ruthless stare of the Sagittarian archer, so it is not a time when any form of compromise comes easy!
On November 13th, 2012, a Total Solar Eclipse will occur in the House of Scorpio effecting a grand bifurcation and transmutation of all things upon the Earth. Beginning with and beyond this event positive, obvious, and powerful life transformations of all magnitudes will manifest brilliantly within our lives. The eclipse will provide the cosmic ignition to Saturn, setting its young transit in Scorpio ablaze, and it will have a crippling effect upon those who have attempted to subvert humanity’s predestined evolution. A vibrational divide will commence which will separate lower vibrational beings from their higher counterparts, to include, and especially in the physical sense. With rebirth being a potent theme, look for life to become far more profound beyond the shadow of this Scorpio solar eclipse!
Expect the following types of Scorpio solar eclipse synchronicities: supernatural psychic activations, literal and metaphorical deaths, total transformations of material circumstances, great transferences of power, investigations that shock and cause outcry, necessary and favorable conversions of resources, the relentless exposure of evil, crime, and secrecy, the purging of corruption, medical traumas and the sudden awareness of disease, sacred and paradigm ending revelations, sudden appropriations of wealth, great disruptions to secret societies, the breaking of entanglements, the deepening of spiritual devotion, breakthroughs in psychotherapy, the enforcement of accountability, public shamings, and revivals of health.
As a rule, all eclipses sync with divinely ordained experiences, the most powerful type being the total solar eclipse. When an eclipse occurs currents of fate ripple throughout our lives. It is important to know this because there are times in life where God shows His hand. Eclipses qualify to be included among these times. The nature of one’s eclipse experience will always reflect their Light Quotient, which is the composite of one’s mental, spiritual, and physical vibrations. Eclipses are designed to quantum leap our lives and they have been heralded throughout history as omens of radical change – and rightly so! By referencing one’s own horoscope, which is in fact a sacred document, one can very easily determine where an eclipse will have the greatest impact on their lives. Their effects needn’t be secret.
Tomorrow, Tuesday 13th November, at 10.30pm GMT, there is a total solar eclipse (visible only in parts of Northern Australia) and this is a significant moment astrologically. A total solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes directly across the face of the Sun. It is one of the synchronicity ‘miracles’ of our geocentric perception that the Moon and Sun just happen to be appear exactly the same size in our sky, despite being vastly different in their actual size. In an astrological chart, one can identify a solar eclipse when the new moon is conjunct with the north or south node within a few degrees. This typically happens twice a year. In May we had an eclipse with Sun and Moon conjunct the south node, and now they are conjunct the north node at 21 degrees of Scorpio.
Eclipses carry a powerful energetic imprint at a collective level and can be especially impactful at a personal level if they contact planets or angles in a person’s birth chart. They focus energy and bring issues to a head. They can be catalytic and accelerate change. So anyone born with planets (especially Sun, Moon, personal planets or angles) between, say 18-24 degrees of Scorpio will be particularly sensitized by this eclipse. Also, if you have planets at 18-24 degrees of the other fixed signs: Taurus, Leo or Aquarius, then the energy of this eclipse will be strong, and potentially challenging, even transformational. If you have planets at these degrees in the other water signs, Cancer or Pisces, then the energy is likely to be more harmonious, or at least easier to integrate. Continue reading →
The role of Ophiuchus during the Total Solar Eclipse of 13 November 2012 is conspicuous by the constellation’s absence from the Sacred Circle at Stonehenge — our default location for charting such events — for the second Eclipse in a row.
Also significant about this Eclipse is last week’s change in Mercury’s direction of travel. Mercury turned retrograde in Constellation Scorpius on November 06, 2012. He was in alignment with the stars of Ophiuchus’s serpent-holding hand (Yed Prior and Yed Posterior) at the time. The phrase “hands-on” comes to mind. Also “hold” (direct) and “release” (retrograde).
Mercury as you may know has been acting as the planetary intelligence speaking for Ophiuchus in its capacity as a Zodiac constellation that is not a Zodiac Sign although it does satisfy the requirement of containing stars on both sides of the Ecliptic Plane.1
The Mercury retrograde in Scorpius is not only giving us pause to review and reconsider how we feel about the Scorpion/Serpent issue (discussion and links below) but also what we think of the Ophiuchus/13th Zodiac Sign issue.
Who among us wants to break up the Sacred Geometry of the 12 Signs? Anybody? (Not me, you may be surprised to know.) But we can debate this issue later.
For the present, as we revisit questions of Universal significance to the New Age during the Mercury retrograde cycle, Apollo class Asteroid Hermes also transits Constellation Scorpius but in direct motion. Thus stability and connectivity is maintained between Scorpius, Serpens and Ophiuchus while the planetary intelligence for Constellation Ophiuchus is compelled to enter a retrograde period at a critical time in its Constellation Scorpius transit. Hermes picks up the slack.
The back and forth energies of October have thankfully ended and we are entering the relative calm of November, although two eclipses and several retrograde planets, including Mercury retrograde all month, will contribute to this slower movement. We will have to decide whether it feels stagnant or is a period of well deserved rest before we move into December and then into 2013.
This has not been an easy year but it has been one in which we have had to stay one step ahead of ourselves and we learned the power of choice, intention and alignment. As we set new intentions, anything that was not aligned with them was up for review. What were we going to choose, our new intention and a new alignment or our old ways of being, which also meant relinquishing our new intention? Having fewer options could make the choices easier but in this case, the things we had to choose from often meant big life transformation. And sometimes we chose neither because we weren’t ready, it was just too hard or it wasn’t the right time. As we move into 2013 timing will become increasingly important and we will learn to work within divine timing. This month presents us with learning about divine timing, right purpose, alignment, and integrity.
As we move into November, Mercury retrograde asks us to re-view, re-lease, re-consider and then re-align with what is left over, once we have released everything that is not in alignment with the intention we have for our life. What is that? Start with joy, being happy, feeling fulfilled, being secure. Make room for the Universe to work within your life, create space for the fulfillment of your intention and dreams, and be willing to receive. We’re masters at asking, but we forget that at some point we have to stop asking and be willing to receive (all within divine timing, of course).
In some respects, November is a good news/bad news month; in others, it is a Rorschach (ink blot) test. What we think we see will have a lot to do with what we get. And for a great many of us, for those who choose so, November is a portal into a new and better time.
The difficult aspects are in the foreground. The good aspects are powerful and lasting, but they are in the background. So how we come out of November, the choices we make, will depend a lot on where we put our focus.
The bad news for November is a month-long series of challenging aspects with a respite in the middle of the month. These are, as I said, very much in the foreground.
November opens with a series of astrological events bound to generate immense, all but overwhelming, confusion and frustrating delay. It closes with a series of potentially explosive aspects. A potential for radical, unexpected change and crisis pervades the month.
With two eclipses in November, the choices we make will be fateful and, realistically, irreversible.
These difficult aspects affect all of our most important relationships, from their spiritual, physical and emotional foundations to their outermost social, economic and political manifestations.
To escape the worst effects of the obvious bad aspects and benefit from the powerful, but more subtle, supportive aspects, we need to release any negativity built up over the last several years, respond constructively to November’s challenges and embrace the opportunities that are now rapidly emerging.
We’ll need to meet the challenges of November optimistically and focus on the profound, and profoundly positive, potentials now emerging.
In September and October many of us committed ourselves to a new course of action. November is a test of how clearly we understand the task we have set ourselves and the depth of our resolve to overcome the inner and outer obstacles to our goals.
For a great many of us, the challenge will be a struggle to make deep, difficult changes in important relationships so everyone can move forward, materially, emotionally and spiritually.
