Today, Sophia (the goddess embodied as the Earth) and Sabaoth (the divine being embodied as the Sun) connect with the Pleroma (the Galactic Center, home of the divine beings who are generators of our galaxy). That’s Gnostic-speak, but using these terms puts a different perspective on the event, doesn’t it? If I write “the Earth and the Sun make aspects to the Galactic Center today,” the drama that is unfolding today falls flat.
The other players in the cast of characters today includes each of us and the Archons (who play the role of antagonists).
Today we take aim towards the Galactic Center, much like sunflowers aim for the Sun. We turn our attention toward home while we are firmly rooted in the Earth. The Earth is our immediate home, but she is a habitat-vehicle. Our origins are in the Galactic Center. We are stellar beings, the template for which was generated in the Galactic Center, incubated in the Orion Nebula, and seeded here on Earth. This is what the Gnostics tell us.
So what’s the big deal with this Moon? Well it’s a bigun – it is a Moon that is in its perigee – the point in its orbit nearest the Earth – and happening so close to the Summer Solstice – only 2 days after on the 23rd of June. That doesn’t happen that often.
Apparently, the best time to see it will be on the evening of the 22nd of June – fingers crossed it is not cloudy where you are.
The Summer Solstice has always been important. It is the time of year that the days on Earth begin to shorten again and the Sun goes into the sign of Cancer the Crab. Symbolically, we can say that this signifies that the light of awareness, as represented by the Sun – now comes to us through our family, past and domestic affairs. It is a good time to act from the heart and express our bona fide feelings.
When the Moon is at its closest to the Earth we have a period of higher tides. Psychologically, it signifies a stronger pull on our emotions and will have a noticeable affect on those who express themselves through feeling.
In Astrology, the Moon rules Cancer meaning that when we express nurture and act on our feelings we do this through our receptive, personal lunar level of awareness as portrayed by the Moon.
Alright dear ones. Today I want to talk about how to use “I AM” as a statement that goes very, very deep into the consciousness.
“I AM” is really a declaration of Creation speaking the words of God “I AM” and kind of declaring silently all that is or all of Creation or God’s creative consciousness.
So when you begin to play with the “I AM”, essentially you want to feel the energies going in deeper and deeper and deeper. So you can declare “I AM”, breathe out and empty your being. You might play with words like ‘ I AM emptiness”, “I AM not” which is also saying I’m void as well as full. So when you work with “I AM” you can play with that for a while and then say “I AM not”, which is also true, in that you are saying I’m emptiness, I am creative consciousness that is not yet at its peak, not yet developed.
So I do encourage you to play with that and the common ones like “I AM that I AM”, or “I AMwhat I AM”. It’s a very kind of simplistic way of saying it. You can also look at reality and say “It is what it is” and that’s another way of extending that.
There is a deliberate order to events today, but they are going to happen fast. The important thing to know is to not rush. Don’t push anything; let things develop in their own time. We see the value of starting slowly and we see how to be tolerant of people and things that are not as developed (delayed).
Who or what is demanding recognition? The root cause of any issues about support/appreciation/recognition are sourced in the false belief that we each are alone. It is spiritual pain that we execute by projecting onto others. Projection is very, very strong today and can cause stress in relationships and intense self-judgment.
Today, Bagalamukhi works to rectify situations that are inequitable, unspoken, hidden, or fake. This will cause people to speak up or speak out about things that are not in line with the way they desire them to be. People want to be heard, so if someone is expressing his or her feelings to you, pay attention. It is important to listen. If you are the one voicing your feelings, the way you present them is key. Outbursts will not be very productive; opt for seriousness and respect.

Ruling Mahavidya: Bagalamukhi
Today, the energy centers around two main themes: satisfaction and overcoming.
We have a strong astrological aspect in play today: Venus makes the one-day-per-year opposition to Pluto. This brings lots of things into the forefront, especially relationship issues (and obsessions). This involves the “satisfaction/dissatisfaction” theme.
The positive end of the aspect is the potential for relationships to become deeper and stronger. The negative end of the aspect brings jealousy, blame, and dissatisfaction.
This doesn’t only affect romantic relationships; it effects all types of relationships (even relationships with co-workers). People can act really ugly under Venus-Pluto energy or they can reach lofty heights of expression. We can work the high end or the low end. So if you find yourself in a situation where someone is not satisfied with you or if there is a situation that you are not satisfied with, understand that we are hyper-sensitive to this issue today.
This past weekend’s post discussed Bagalamukhi, so go back to the Archives and catch that if you missed it.
This month, the Wisdom Goddess Bagalamukhi will be working to lighten our load in many ways. Bagalamukhi destroys or renders enemies powerless. Our main enemies are mind parasites and intrusions. They instill fear, self-doubt, insecurity, and self-judgment. You can think of these enemies as your own personal demons, but that’s not accurate because they don’t have anything to do with us truly; they are an outside force – the Archons. They seek to keep us from seeing or using our gifts. They keep us walled off from others, fearful of being hurt. They particularly like to keep us cut off from our Mother, the goddess Sophia who is embodied as our planet (because if we felt the full connection, we would fear nothing).
Bagalamukhi works very, very hard at helping us see through this. She does this primarily by destroying our illusions and delusions. In the process, we become lighter and less burdened.
Bagalamukhi’s method will involve getting rid of things that are being stored that should not be physically, mentally, or emotionally stored. You can read this also as things that are carried, housed, or held.
Today’s energy is a ballet of masks. The grand loops of the performance are elegant, fluid, and mesmerizing, giving the appearance of changing scenery. Tara is at her finest.
The beautiful way to handle today’s energy is to recognize that each of us will play each part in today’s ballet of masks. We will play the roles of audience member, director, stagehand, understudy, supporting dancer, and lead dancer. If we rigidly try to hold onto one role or avoid taking on any of the roles, the loop of movement is disrupted and the performance crashes. (This in and of itself is not a bad thing, it just makes for a different type of performance – a more dramatic, intense ballet with quick ups and downs as opposed to more refined ballet with grand loops. Both are interesting to watch. Each is a different experience. It’s our choice.)
Alright. This is a perfect time to cover the topic on trust and belief systems.
True trust is an inner knowing that something is perfectly in place, perfectly balanced. It can also be in the form more of an alert of not trusting that the lamp is going to stay on the table if the dog knocks into the table, that kind of thing. So it could be trust or not trusting.
And then we have another dynamic here which involves the belief systems. Now the nature of belief systems is to build upon one belief and then create a system of beliefs. So, for example, the dog frequently bats his tail and knocks things over that are that height therefore if I am going to place a table and a lamp at his height range I need to make sure they are heavy and won’t fall over easily or whatever it is. So you build a structure of belief systems.
And then trust is something that is occurring now within humanity, it’s sort of crumbling. Maybe I can’t trust the stock market or I can’t trust a certain person that I know to keep their word, or I can’t really trust that tomorrow is going to be another good day.
Today we connect with the energy of the sea gull. What does this photograph conjure for you?
People often have strong feelings about sea gulls. Some find them annoying and others find them relaxing because they are associated with water. In Animal Speak, Ted Andrews discusses how sea gulls are shore birds and rarely venture far from land. Shore lines, he says, are magical and mysterious in that they are neither land nor sea, but between the two.
Balsamic moon phases are magical and mysterious, too, and they also are neither part of the last lunar cycle nor part of the next lunar cycle, but between the two. Shorelines and Balsamic Moon phases are part of the netherworld or the Spiritworld. In keeping with the energy, we are going to get magical and mysterious today as well.
Oracle Report Disseminating Moon Phase – Moon in Capricorn/Aquarius
Ruling Mahavidya – Tara
New responses to life are coming from deep inside us. Expanded levels of awareness are part of the natural shift/changes that are taking place. Look for the addition of new elements into situations, elements that will shift our perspective.
Disseminating phase is the time of the lunar cycle when we get feedback/messages through others, so pay attention to what others are saying and watch for synchronicities.
The Full Moon is located at the degree in the sky known as “an old owl up in a tree.” We are called upon. The old owl sees all. It sees what others miss and it keeps quiet while processing all that is going on. It is a solitary endeavor. From this comes wisdom and strength.
A little solitude will go a long way this weekend, as chatter, activity, crowding, going from place to place or one thing to another in rapid succession (especially rapid mental succession) are themes. This creates a lot of things for wise owls to watch from on high. (The key part of “an old owl up in a tree” is UP.)
Gemini energy is super strong this weekend with Venus, Mercury, and Jupiter in conjunction at the degree of “a cafeteria with an abundance of choices.” This is going to be tricky in some ways because so many options or thoughts or directions are available. But the wise owl is not flying around willy nilly with this. It remains still while the field rearranges.
This does not mean we should be in a bubble this weekend or isolate ourselves. Wise owls have fun, too, but they don’t engage or squander their energy in dead-end pursuits. Among all options, they choose well.
In the midst of this, the Moon will make the final significant aspect to the Black Moon while the Black Moon is in Gemini. By the time a planet is in the last degrees of a sign, we are pretty much ready for it to move on. We are weary of it. The themes of the Black Moon in Gemini are fear of disapproval and rejection, selfishness and selflessness in the extreme, people pleasing, and the need for others (or just one) other in order to feel safe.
