Djwhal Khul here. Tashi Delek.
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.
June is a moderately active month, highlighted by the retrograde stations of Neptune, Chiron and Mercury. The ongoing trine aspect between Saturn and Neptune can provide practical expression for our dreams and visions, which is further emphasized by three creative, sensitive water grand trines. The Sun and Jupiter’s entry into Cancer later in the month brings focus to home, security issues and our emotional/feeling awareness.
On June 3, the first water grand trine occurs between Mercury in Cancer, Saturn in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces.This sensitive combination has the potential to bring form and organization for our creative ideas and spiritual ideals. Communication of feelings in relationships can be better received and understood during these few days.
The combined planetary forces on June 6-8 contain both challenges and opportunities. Neptune turns stationary retrograde on June 7, which increases our sensitivity, but also a tendency towards deception or indecision. This theme is reinforced by difficult aspects between Mars, Saturn and Neptune. The Mercury opposition to Pluto can bring deeper communications, but also disagreements. This same day features the second water grand trine of Venus, Saturn and Neptune, which brings opportunities to create greater emotional rapport, love and harmony. This is not the best day for accomplishment, but rather to focus on being more heart-centered.
The New Moon occurs on June 8 at 18 Gemini. It is widely aligned with Jupiter in Gemini, which brings focus to learning and teaching, along with awareness of perception, beliefs, ideas and higher visions. It has been said that we teach what we need to learn. This is a good month to examine how we form our beliefs, as well as our sources of information. This month may also require us to be more flexible and adaptable to changing circumstances. The Sabian symbol for this degree, “A large archaic volume reveals a traditional wisdom,” suggests that we all have deeper sources of wisdom that can be tapped into when needed.
Friday evening’s Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse is an exciting one, the last of three eclipses in this early spring time frame, taking place just a few days following the most recent installment of the perfect square between Uranus and Pluto in Cardinal signs, and strongly highlighting as well both Saturn and Neptune in close trine with each other. All four outer planets including Saturn are therefore very much emphasized at this time. Those born with sensitive points in their natal chart at around 4-12 degrees of any sign are most directly affected, as one or more of these powerhouse planets will likely square, conjunct or oppose such placements. As far as Sun Sign, this means everyone born within a few days of the first of the month, either at nearly the end or in the first few days of his or her birth month. Pretty much everyone will feel the intensity to some extent as we head into another summer of Uranus-Pluto, the hallmark in fact of this entire decade that I like to call the “Turbulent Teens.”
All four of these planetary archetypes connote the difficult acceptance of a process of radical change, although from different angles. Saturn, the farthest planet actually visible without instrumentation and the only one known to the ancients, works upon you by a process of extreme limitation. You see clearly where your responsibility lies, and there is no escape. This seems dire, but certainly at times circumstances do conspire to inform us that there is one path for us to take, one way out, and although not necessarily pleasant it will be the road with the long-term reward of lessons learned and wisdom regained for the next stage of our journey.
I’ve got a busy day of sessions ahead of me, but I felt called to post an acknowledgment:
If you’re feeling weepy, intense, overwhelmed, terrified of seemingly dire health issues, horrified at recent government/NWO moves, and/or just wondering if all your dreams and progress are merely an illusion … you’re in excellent company.
We’ve got so much Pisces and Chiron energy whirling around these days that most sensitive people can’t help feeling it. That’s why, even though I’m not an Astrologer, I post others’ Astrological forecasts on this blog. Whether we follow the stars or not, they influence us. As Joni Mitchell so eloquently put it, “We are stardust, we are golden,” but physicists and mystics have also expressed that fact. As Above, So Below … As Within, So Without. Astrological trends influence, but we need not accept them as unalterable destiny. It just helps to know what kind of world we’re swimming in, and we’ve got whirlpools and a bunch of scary looking sea monsters right now.
Relax. Nurture yourself. This, too, shall pass.
Oracle Report Full Moon Phase – Moon in Libra
Quite in contrast to yesterday, beautiful and creative energy enters today with Venus’ conjunction with Neptune. This happens one day each year and it is awesome if you can attach to it! Neptune is considered the “higher octave” of Venus, meaning the conjunction takes the very best of Venus and brings it to lofty new heights. It exudes the love of life.
The Venus-Neptune conjunction aspects (by sextile) the Chiron Point (4 Taurus). The Chiron Point is the degree in the sky where Chiron was located when it was first discovered (it’s “birthplace”). I frequently reference it because it is such a telltale element. Anyone with 4 Taurus in their natal chart or anyone with an aspect to 4 Taurus is “Chirotic,” meaning their lives embody or follow along the path of the Wounded Healer.
With Monday’s Full Moon in Virgo we come to an important turning point in our journey toward greater self-knowledge and integration. This moment in the lunation cycle represents some sense of culmination in what we have been attempting in the two weeks since the New Moon of February 9th, and is accompanied by a Pisces line-up involving six planets, including the Sun. Although one of these, Venus, is not officially in Pisces until evening-time, she hovers on the very brink of entrance into the magical sign of Neptune‘s rulership. With Venus in the final degree of Aquarius, we are absorbing the lessons of detachment in relationship, the other side of the coin of merging and connecting. Venus coming into Pisces represents a different flavor of relating – we come into closer connection with spiritual purpose, and with the angel inside ourselves and in each other. This is indeed a special and a very mystical period of time. The Sun is in conjunction with Chiron, the Wounded Healer, with the Moon opposed, while Mercury completes its turn to retrograde motion in conjunction with Mars, also in Pisces, promoting inner work over outer activity.
The Full Moon also makes a T-square to Jupiter in Mercury‘s sign of Gemini, promoting an optimistic mental attitude, together with the spiritual energy for active contemplation, another chime with Pisces and Neptune. Neptune itself resides in early Pisces, near Chiron and the Sun. Mars in close conjunction with retrograde Mercury completes the sextuple of Piscean planetary energies. Then, too, since Mercury is beginning its five-week cycle of retrograde motion and the regaining of its lost zodiacal ground, returning to where it started on the weekend of February 23rd, there is a strongly meditative element expressed all through this last part of February and on into March and April. Mercury remains in Pisces until mid-April, stationing direct on March 17th and only escapes its retrograde shadow on April 6th.
Oracle Report First Quarter Moon Phase – Moon in Taurus/Gemini
This is my Many Thanks Day. Many thanks to everyone who participated in visualizing the parliament of owls across the sky yesterday. It is interesting that a group of owls is called a “parliament,” isn’t it? Many thanks also to Oracle Report reader Mike who informed us of this bit of information.
Another reader, Cheryl, asks why I use the owl symbolism here. I began working earnestly with “owl medicine” when I started research for my first book “Eris.” The owl has been long-regarded as a guardian, a protector, and force of the goddess. It also is associated with wisdom, of course. A few years ago, I introduced the technique of going inside ourselves and witnessing what was happening in the outside world, being energetically-buffered from the fray of events. The metaphor was to be like a wise old owl going inside the branches of a tree (or a hole in a tree) and peering out. I referred to this often, so this is how the notion of readers being like wise old owls began.
So now with thousands of readers and millions of hits to the site each year, the parliament has grown to a proportion that still surprises me. The word parliament is accurate because we represent and uphold the value of life and champion the dreaming of Gaia Sophia, the divine being embodied as the planet. This is the mission of this site.
There was massive black magic afoot yesterday. I am always cautious in how I “warn” of this because everyone is at a different level of understanding. But I may have to just be very blunt about it in the future because it was all I could do to get a note out and all Andrew could do to load it to the site from his location. He is a dear and assists however he can anytime Archontic forces interfere with me writing and uploading to the net. We owe him many thanks.
The important New Moon that comes along late on Saturday evening is a rather strong one, and sets into prominence two very different signs, Aquarius and Pisces. This is because just as the New Moon lights up the last decant of Aquarius, taking place as it does in the 22nd degree of that sign, there is a strong line-up of four planets in the early part of Pisces, consisting of thoughtful Mercury, action-oriented Mars and Chiron the Wounded Healer, all within 2 degrees. All three are in turn within orb of conjunction with Neptune, the ruler of Pisces and Lord of Illusion.
There is thus an extra zing to the energy of this configuration regarding thinking, action and illusion. And with Chiron involved there is also thrown in the pain of thought or the pain of lost illusion. Pisces is not only about illusion of course but also partakes of an otherworldly numinousity representing that which is beyond the physical plane of earthly existence; which can be confusing to earth-bound mentality. The Pisces-Neptune archetype also translates to a higher ideal and a sense of spiritual realization, transcending the simple and limited rational perspective of ordinary thought, which then – by a process of figure and ground reversal – is seen as the illusion.
Balsamic Moon Phase – Moon in Capricorn/Aquarius (Ruling Mahavidya: Matangi)
This photo was taken by a reader in Scotland during the time of the “inky” solar eruption and coronal mass ejections on February 6. It doesn’t translate that well in the box above, but you can catch a glimpse of the magenta “light” that appeared in the rays of Sun on the wooded ground. It is most unusual and very beautiful.
The Neptune, Mercury, Mars conjunction squaring Jupiter is still in effect (while at the same time the energy of the CMEs reaches maximum strength). Opportunities or chances to take a shot at something may open up in front of us today (especially things that we have wanted or have been thinking about for a while) and we will want to take advantage of this if it shows up.
The conjunction is happening in Pisces and Pisces is the dominant “ruler” of Balsamic Moon phases. All of this makes for an exceptionally psychic and spiritual period of time. Balsamic Moon phase is when the veils between the worlds are thinnest, enabling us to tune in to the mind of Sophia more readily. In many ways we are following a path today – kind of like the path of light through the woods in this picture. Try to wrap this idea into your mental landscape today. Indulge in it. The energy steers us toward indulgences of all types, so let’s use it to take us on a walk with the goddess.
Oracle Report |Third Quarter Moon Phase – Moon in Capricorn
Ruling Mahavidya: Matangi
Efforts undertaken in collaboration with others are highlighted today. The energy favors bringing people together to exchange ideas and make things better. But there is a lot of confusion and waywardness, causing barriers. Neptune, Mercury, and Mars are in tight conjunction squaring Jupiter and it is quite a mixture.
It is very important to think before we speak or take action. It’s not a time to make huge decisions, so put it off if you can. There’s a lot of chatter on the line and it is harder to gain clarity. Be patient and take things as they come. Rushing or trying to follow rigid timescales will be frustrating. I’m calling today a “remix” because things are being rearranged, reconfigured, and restored (see yesterday’s report for more information). This can leave us feeling a little out of control, and we are, so the more you can go with it, the easier it will be. It’s a deluge for sure, so be extra kind to yourself and others today.
The Astrology of February features Mars, Venus, Mercury, Saturn, Chiron and Neptune, together with a Pisces line-up of planets that takes place in coordination with the February 9th Aquarius New Moon. All month, from the evening of February 1st on, Mars is in the very interesting and mystical sign of Pisces, where there is definitely a softer and more subtle approach to his feisty and normally outer-directed energy. It’s as though that energy were turned inside and tuned to distant dimensions – more appropriate to poetry and music than to the active and assertive nature bordering on aggression that is normally associated with the fiery Red Planet.
Mercury joins Mars in Pisces around the time of the New Moon, and closely conjoins Chiron as it does so, making a tight triple conjunction, which is additionally within orb of conjunction with Neptune in the early degrees of the sign. Saturn is stationing in the mid-month time frame, in trine with these three planets, and in bi-quintile to revolutionary Uranus, to which the stodgy and conservative energy is antithetical. Revolution is in the air, as it has been for these last few years, and there is also a considerable conservative backlash that is becoming even more intense as this second climactic year in a row – 2013 – gets underway.
The Astrology of January features Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Pluto. Venus, ruler of the New Year’s Eve chart, is also prominent in the chart of the January 11th Capricorn New Moon in that having entered Capricorn, she squares Uranus and sextiles Neptune. Uranus itself is hit by the earlier configuration and again by this month’s New Moon. The emphasis on Venus means that relationships of all kinds are emphasized now, or in another way of saying it, we are all in this together.
Uranus is still of course within orb of its strongly thematic square with Pluto, now in dormancy but heating up in the spring of this year, and still quite strong over the summer months, and indeed over the next few years. The influence lasts until nearly the end of this decade. This important aspect was highlighted at the time of the December 28th Full Moon, and in the chart for the New Year, with the Sun in close conjunction to Pluto. Saturn is also involved, for these next few months, by trine and sextile. We are all feeling the tremendous transformational pressure to make necessary changes to the structure of our lives, so that we can flow into a livable state of balance with ourselves, and for the sake of our future.
Love Your Design | November 25 2012 | Thanks, Minty
Did you hear that loud POP! It was me coming out of the confusion I’ve been in for 48 hours. I can feel the slime falling off me as I climb free.
There’s a whole lot of layers of the life and death motif floating around at the moment. It’s because we are making a major shift in where we put our attention. The mutative individual circuitry meets the ancient survival instincts of the Spleen Centre and we have a whirlpool of confusion.
I was watching a report on the post-Thanksgiving sales yesterday. One economic forecaster explained how great it is that people are applying for more credit cards so they can buy more. Apparently that means consumer confidence is up. Really? I can think of other reasons, just as worthy of our consideration. But no, let’s grasp for the one that offers us at least a faint if delusional hope of being rescued from our fears of annihilation.
In my life at the moment I have five situations where I feel stuck in a life and death struggle. Where I feel I should behave in particular ways, because that will create various forms of good. In each case the behaviour required of me goes against what feels right for me. I’ve been trying to explain, apologising for myself, trying to make sense of my part in it all. And here’s the rub. When we sacrifice ourselves to the greater good we are acting out of a collective survival fear. And that fear is death, annihilation of self and the entire human race. This fear is so deep within our consciousness, and woven so tightly through all our relationships that our own life force energy is barely a blip on the radar by comparison.
