With every New Moon and Full Moon alignment that takes place, there is always an important message that reflects to us where we are in our current evolution and exactly how we are evolving and changing at an energetic level.
When I look at the New Moon cycle and the configurations of the planets and the aspects and angels they are making to each other, I am becoming increasingly aware of the magnitude of the events taking place right now. As these planetary alignments are intensifying and huge shifts are taking place in our perception and our vibration, I am compelled to share with you how I am seeing these changes reflected in the skies — although in truth, there are not enough words available to describe what is taking place at this unparalleled point in our evolution…
We are subtly but constantly having internal spiritual earthquakes, bringing us more into alignment with our authentic selves and prompting us to help consciously evolve the planet. Are you feeling it?
Happy birthday Gemini! May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warmly upon your face.
Planetary Alignments Reflecting our Evolution
Jupiter in Leo and Mercury in Gemini Inconjunct Pluto in Capricorn
This alignment between Pluto, Mercury and Jupiter in astrology is called a Yod. This is when three planets are involved; you have two planets (in this case, Jupiter and Mercury) on one side, 60 degree’s apart, making connections to a third planet directly opposite the other two, in this case Pluto, which forms the apex of the yod.
The third planet, without getting into too much detail, is in a blind-spot alignment to the other two planets, which essentially causes a unique interaction between the planets. Creating a crisis which then leads to internal reflection and then to a confrontation of limitations inducing evolution, the Yod is about evolving past the limitation through crisis.
But, with this current alignment, there is so much more going on – and in this story, Venus will be playing the ‘bad cop’. As she travels through the constellation Cancer, she Venus be triggering off what is called the midpoint of the Yod. This point is located in between Mercury and Jupiter. A planet at this point activates the intensity of this pattern greatly, catapulting its energy towards the apex of the yod. This is a big deal in relation to our current spiritual evolution. Let me explain…
In order for to us to innovate and change the way we are do things, we have to think outside the box. We must challenge the pre-existing definitions and patterns of psychological conditioning, and enact what we have integrated. This moment, marked by this powerful alignment, is where we begin re-writing our history on both an individual and global level. In essence, this alignment is reflecting the need to diversify and expand our knowledge and gain a new skill set, explore new avenues of creation that you have never felt possible before, and take a leap of faith in a direction never before pioneered.
Find the courage and conviction to chase your dreams, believe in your ideas and bring great things to the planet. The whole world is waiting.
Venus in Cancer Square the North Node (Libra) and South Node (Aries) Opposite Pluto in Capricorn
This alignment is adding to the collective need and feeling of that something needs to change, pushing us toward a new direction and inspiring the feeling to begin rewriting our collective story in new way. This is a grand cardinal alignment. These archetypes are reflecting a new direction (South Node in Aries) from the past that is leading to a new sense of belonging (Venus in Cancer) which is changing the way are forming new relationships to ourselves and others (North Node in Libra). This change is then leading us to redefine ourselves (Pluto in Capricorn) as individuals and as a collective.
This alignment, in the context of this new consciousness that is emerging on Earth, is one through which we bring our power back from external dependencies and into alignment with our natural ways — nurturing our personal needs, each other, and our planet.
Mercury Retrograde ~ 19th of May until 11th of June
Lastly the winged messenger Mercury will be moving into retrograde motion from the 19th of May until the 11th of June.
As its apparent motion changes from direct to retrograde, Mercury will go stationary on the day of the New Moon. As a planet is turning retrograde, it appears (from our perspective) to stop moving through the sky; this is what is called stationary. The way this phenomenon is energetically experienced is like holding a magnifying glass and focusing in on whatever the planet is ‘pointing to’. As Mercury is in its own sign, Gemini, this month’s transit of Sun through Gemini will be a magnified focal point.
The story behind this event is that we must pay attention to the beliefs and personal/global philosophy that we subscribe to. This is an invitation to find a deeper connection to your own personal life philosophy, and indeed the truth behind who you are. Is your life philosophy one that empowers you? Do you truly live by your life philosophies? This alignment is illuminating the path to finding your place in the world.
Make sure to double-check and triple-check important details during this period of time, as our mental facilities may be on a spiritual holiday
New Moon Message
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.”
Up until this point in time in our collective evolution, we have depended on outside authorities to parent us. We have handed over the power, authority and the responsibility for ourselves and our world to the government’s and institutions. We may have “chosen our parents” so to speak, by voting, maybe by choosing the institutions we go to, but at the end of the day we have still been asking someone else to tell us what to do. As with children, we have fought amongst ourselves at the unfairness of our needs not being met the way we may wish for. We may have complained to the authorities at how they haven’t managed to meet our needs or even voted for a new government to govern us; to parent us; tell us what to do and how to do it. This has offered us an illusion of safety – a false sense of security. In truth, there is no security in abdicating one’s personal authority.
As we begin to take our power back and assert our personal authority in a world of over-regulation, we are stepping into unknown ground. We are finding the ‘parent’ within and no longer looking for someone else to tell us what to do. Or accepting those who do. As we are making this transition we sometimes find ourselves in a space where we feel lost, alone, or fearful, but this is the experience of growing up; of becoming an adult. We may not always know what to do or how to do it. We don’t always have the answers and it can feel scary at times taking full sovereign responsibility for our lives, but remember — although we might “get it wrong” sometimes we will always learn from the experience.
As we venture into this unknown realm of ‘becoming our own parents’, we look around us and see the way the abundance of the world is so unfairly distributed amongst our brothers and sisters. We notice that the focus of the former authority has not been to see its ‘children’ thrive but to enslave them; that we have been taught that the Earth cannot provide for and nourish us. That we must rely and depend on the authorities and their destructive technologies to do this.
Over recent years we have begun to question our dependencies on ‘the system’, and even take steps to begin disconnecting from it. Now, this New Moon seeds into formation some incredibly powerful astrological alignments that will help bring into our awareness the external dependencies we still have, and ask us to question their necessity and explore real alternatives.
This is a time to take our power back and be conscious of the contracts we make, and have made with others – be it through explicit agreement or silent consent.
The Unity Consciousness
As we become more self-reliant and step into our own authority the next step is to take responsibility for the collective distortions and to become part of the solution. This is a natural progression as we naturally wish to create an outer reality that reflects the inner. Now this is where many find themselves at this point; looking for a way to make a difference. Wishing to change the world but not knowing how. The answer lies in this current New Moon chart. It is to connect with others and work together for a joint goal that makes the world a better place. To find a cause that inspires us enough to want to give and share freely towards this goal. And the key here is inspiration, joy and happiness. We are building a new world from the heart, by the heart, with love.
The first thing to acknowledge when moving into this new direction is that it has never been explored before. This will help us to show more compassion towards ourselves during the process. This is a new direction so give yourself the freedom to try out whatever feels right, explore, expand and be prepared to make mistakes. We have to look at what is available to us, network and collaborate. See a need, fill a need — that is the ‘new economy‘. There is abundance all over, part of this new moon configuration is about looking at how our psychological structures, cause us to believe that there is not enough in the world and the false belief that the planet cannot support our life. That we must fight to survive. This belief is not only suppressing our faith in our abilities and stopping us from following our dreams, it also feeds the need for separation, selfishness and greed. But there is more than enough for everyone.
We are connected. Share your talents, connect with others, and offer your own personal experiences of how you are trying new ways of doing things. It is all about sharing and connecting with others and offering perspectives that offer possible new solutions to situations. There are no experts, only more experiences. This philosophy is demonstrated in the Air Trine of Aquarius/Gemini/Libra. Connectivity, sharing, inclusion and diversity; these are the thought patterns that will make the new direction thrive.
We go about integrating our desire to help, and change the world by aligning our guidance system through the heart. The Jupiter is Leo story is overflowing with energy pushing for creative heart intelligence to be brought forth. Our abundance lies in our honoring the heart as it us the way the soul communicates and manifests. The way we go about this is learning to have our hearts (inner child) guide our directions through ‘’what resonates’’ then to begin parenting – Mother (Cancer)/ Father (Capricorn) – the journey of how to go about creating this. This is our collective lesson and story. By embodying this you will be surprised as to what we are going to achieve.
At this time we are being asked to take responsibility for ourselves and our planet, to identify our individual and collective needs, and to create conscious collaborative connections throughout the global community. Together we can start projects which enable the growth and sustainability of everyone and everything.
So let’s get to work!
Full Moon In Scorpio ~ An Invitation To Emergence
5th May 2015
As posted on Wake Up World
A very pivotal point in the Pluto–Capricorn cycle is being called into our collective awareness and a radical shift in our spiritual awakening is taking place.
Up until this point in time, the awaking experience has lead us to feel very shaken up. We have experienced deep internal changes that have led us to begin dramatic life changes. Much of the past month has been about re-integrating one’s awakened self-back into the social (physical) realm, but is has also being about embodying the new higher aspects of our spiritual selves.
Now, much of the recent months’ events will begin to make more sense as we realize we have each begun a new spiritual journey. As the 2015 timeline unfolds in front of us, an invitation to emergence is on the table. We are half way through the Pluto–Capricorn cycle and although we may be feeling that the end is nowhere in sight, this (temporary) feeling is currently cloaking the huge collective change that has already happened this cycle began back in 2008.
This is a time where we need to reflect on our progress and keep pushing for change, never giving into feelings of futility and lack of purpose. We are humanity and we are strong. Only healing the collective heart can lead to total metamorphosis.
Planetary alignments reflecting our evolution
Sun in Taurus Opposite Moon in Scorpio Square Jupiter in Leo.
There is quite a lot to mention about this alignment. Together with the other T Square going with Saturn, Mercury and Neptune there is quite a significant amount of internal shifting going on. We are clearly feeling paradigms and energies with in us shifting.
What I first noticed with this alignment is that our sense of needs and abundance (Taurus) are being brought into question. This awareness is a reflection how we are going about establishing our new way of life and actualizing ourselves into the physical realm.
So what is important right now? What are the essential resources around us that can aid us in moving forward in our lives? As we bring the current Full Moon’s energy into play, a big part of our focus now is to answer the question “How do we interact with one another and share resources and support without feeling we will not have enough?” A big driving force for us right now is whether we feel connected to the inspiration/motivation behind our choices. Are we manifesting our truth, or someone else’s?
On a higher level, this alignment is also bringing into focus some aspects of the last 2½ years of internal ‘shadow’ work; those deep karmic energies that were brought to the surface for us to clear. we have been dealing with intense dark truths about the nature of humanity. We have become completely aware of the nonsense that today’s authorities and institutions project into our perception about what is real and what is not. (This is an essential part of this aspect, as this is where I feel it ties into the other T Square, which is happening simultaneously.)
Now, as Saturn is approaching its return back into Scorpio all of the lessons and themes are being called up again, bringing our collective awareness back in this direction again. This little escapade of Saturn through Scorpio is simply asking for mastery of those lessons and themes learned in the shadows. The work has already been done. It is now just solidifying it into place.
Saturn Retrograde Opposite Mercury Square Neptune.
This planetary alignments is reflecting some strong evolutionary effects that are happening with in us right now. Saturn itself is reflecting issues related to beliefs and truths that still hold us in duality, bound to illusions of separateness. While this is taking place, the archetype of Mercury (currently in Gemini) is placed in direct opposition to Saturn in Sagittarius, and is challenging how we mentally define ourselves. This is the axis that reflects to us in our consciousness how we communicate (Gemini) our Sagittarius (truth).
This is all happening in relation to the Square that both Mercury and Saturn are making to Neptune in Pisces. On hand Neptune in Pisces is causing awareness for the need to dissolve old definitions while simultaneously creating new definitions that are rooted in knowledge, transparency, unity and empathy. This transit will having you feeling mentally over-tired and finding it really difficult to keep on top of things… at least of a mental level. I would suggest just allowing more flow into your life at this time.
Tied in to the other T square that is going on (which I mentioned above) this alignment is also aiding in re-shaping the truth of our reality and making it crystal clear as to where all the distortions lie within our collective psyche. Discernment is a huge part of this alignment. Question everything. Double-check and triple-check, just to make sure you are seeing what you are seeing. As we are learning to balance and reintegrate the left- and right-brain hemispheres, we are becoming aware that for a great deal of our collective evolution, our intuition has not been practised by suppressed. This alignment is offering a wake-up call to each of us — to become more interconnected with our multi-faceted Self, and (re)learn how to navigate life using (and valuing) our intuition and discernment in equal measure.
Pluto in Capricorn and Uranus in Aries.
At a generational level, Pluto, the symbol of evolution itself, and Uranus, the symbol of revolution, are also having a serious conversation with each other at the moment…
Uranus energy creates an unconscious need for change, to rebel from the existing conditioning, and in this way he helps evolution take place. Uranus helps us not get stuck in confining patterns. From 2010 till 2019, Uranus is in the sign of Aries, the first sign in the zodiac and a symbol of new beginnings. In evolutionary terms, the Aries energy has served to redefine our collective identity by initiating new experiences that will revolutionize and reinvent our experience.
At the same time, Pluto going through Capricorn is bringing to the fore all the dirty secrets, hidden agendas and corruption of our governments, political structures and so forth. This is manifesting in the breakdown of financial system, the housing market, and the corrupt food and health systems – and this is to name a few. The truth is being revealed on all levels and the people have begun demanding to know what is going on (Pluto) and who is responsible (Capricorn). Outdated or old patterns can no longer exist are being replaced with new knowledge and understandings.
Full Moon Message
We are at a point in our evolution were our intention needs to be turned into action. Pluto is at 15 degrees Capricorn reflecting a very critical point in this process; we are not in the process of involution (Letting go) any more. We are very clear about what is going on in the world. The movement is going ahead and we are creating a difference and this is great news for us.
However we do need to focus on the shadow and more challenging aspects of this very important evolutionary cycle.
The 15 degree mark reflects the middle point and creates the feeling where the starting point is very far away and the end is equally as far away. We are literally in the middle of it. It can seem so defeating and pointless at times, it can feel that it is time to give up; like there is going to be no change. This is absolutely a reflection of the Capricorn energy.
This is where the archetypes separates the ‘men from the boys’, so to speak. This is a phase where maturity is key.
Self-determination, maturation and spiritual responsibility are key words that need to be integrated in my personal view. We need to understand that this journey of collective awakening, self-realization and spirituality a long processes. It helps to recognize the progress we have made, but internally and in the outer world, and understand our place in the broader process of evolution.
The greatest challenge humanity faces at this stage is actually implementing change on the planet we live on. To achieve such broad change, we need ambassadors for the change. We need people who are prepared to sacrifice the comfort of complacency and work toward an overall goal that is rooted in making Earth a planet we actually want to live on, and a place for humanity’s future to thrive. This is a time in which focusing on the work that needs to be done in the world (instead of the work that is economically remunerated) will begin to satisfy more than just our physical needs, it will provide our soul with nourishment and healing and enable a collective improvement our life on this planet. To do this, we must connect to our inner being and bring out the Source from within.
One thing to remember is that each generation comes through with their own spiritual journey. Our job right now is to understand that we are in a process of evolving the collective consciousness of our planet, and to offer ourselves to the flow of our divine purpose and help bring about a change that gives future generations a safe, honest platform from which their journey can begin. Acknowledging our place in evolutionary history adds ‘life’ to our story, which at times can feel hopeless. It can feel like a big responsibility – a spiritual responsibility – but remember, we are part of something bigger than we comprehend. We are here at this time to enact this evolutionary change on behalf of humanity. We, and our collective Shift, are the manifestation of humanity’s unstoppable evolutionary reality, and each choice we make leaves a mark on how the collective shaping of our evolution is going to unfold.
We are also learning to take our power back from the external patriarch archetype that has dominated humanity’s energetic presence for far too long. In doing so, we are learning that our freedom requires not in identifying with the lingering distortions in the outer world, or seeing them as a measurement of where we are collectively. Such an identification would only reinforce the distortions of the outer world. Rather, the outer world reflects to us where we have been and what the ramifications of those choices are.
The reason the outer world, so rife with destruction, appears so vastly different to our inner reality is because the more inner healing we do the more apparent the outer distortions become. In reality, we cannot destroy this outer reality by fighting against it – we need to change our direction and accept it as what it is. From that point we implement change away from what is feeding that system.
Remember, each construct in the universe requires life-force. Without it, it does not thrive. With that knowledge in mind, the way to beat the external distortions is to stop giving it life-force. Choose what your energy will actively support, and withhold your energy from those constructs we know must end. We are building a new way of being that is rooted in seeing that “we” the people have the power! This means stop waiting for the magical ‘external force’ to save us, because this will lead us straight into the path of disempowerment.
We the collective are here to initiate change. Each day leaves us making choices that either create a new imprint, or not. Consciously making that choice; that is the path of mastery. And at the highest level of growth, that is what we must attain if we are to rise to this invitation to emergence.
New Moon in Aries – Turning Spirit Into Matter
18th April 2015
With this month’s New Moon cycle, a total switch in the energetic flow has brought about a different feeling towards how we as a collective have been experiencing the journey of 2015 so far.
The acceleration of our internal journey has been very apparent recently. We can thank the Uranus and Aries energy cycle for that. However as we move deeper into 2015 and enter the retrograde season there will be a progressive switch from a sense of energy acceleration to a process of energy assimilation. The dramatic influx of energy from 16th March through to 8th of April brought great change in the aether realms.
Now our real work begins! In order to see the effects of the shifts and acceleration that has occurred in the field, we need to anchor and ground it in the physical plane. This is where the real mastery beings. You want to see the change in the world? Create it! Let’s get to work then…
Planetary Alignments Reflecting Our Evolution
Neptune in Pisces and Mars & Mercury in Taurus inconjunct the North Node in Libra.
This planetary alignment is reflecting to us the need to align our values and needs with what inspires us into action. As we work to manifest our balanced and heart-centered state of awareness into the physical, this aspect is truly important in terms of how our collective evolution on the planet will play out.
In the past 3 years a radical change in our values has led us to seeing our humanity more clearly. It has become so clear what distortions reside in our outer world and how much more nurturing is going to be needed in order to see humanity through this transition.
Now this current alignment is prompting us to become more and more integrated into the healing and restoration process of the planet. We are being asked to align our thoughts, ideas, plans and actions with the energy of unity consciousness. This is a tough aspect of our existence, but our survival (Taurus) in this timeframe demands it. This is not the time to be a passenger. Sharing inclusion balance harmony equality fairness peace and love! Bring them to every moment.
Saturn in Sagittarius Opposite Venus in Gemini, both Square Neptune in Pisces
This planetary alignment is pointing out for us two things; we are being asked through the cycle of Saturn to reflect on our philosophy and notice how it is causing situations in our lives that are still outdated or do not support our expression of unity consciousness. This cycle simultaneously is showing us how our definitions and perspective are being unified and integrated.
We are re-shaping our truth into a state more aligned with natural laws — the truth inherent in nature. We are also being asked to listen more intuitively in our relationship with our natural environment. This is a time in which that intuitive voice should be given a lot of nurturing. As this opposition to Venus (Gemini) takes place, consciously embrace the diversity of perspectives you encounter. By honoring each other’s truth and personal journey, this opposition will enable us to see the unity and totality of creation (Pisces) through a multitude of lenses (Gemini). This way, to help ourselves, we need to connect and help others. This process unifies us.
Pluto (Capricorn) Inconjunct Jupiter (Leo)
Because Pluto has recently gone retrograde – an inverted energy expression – Pluto’s connection to Jupiter, which recently went direct after its own retrograde cycle, presents us with a dynamic new opportunity; one of out with the old and in with the new.
A new direction is available to us all. A new creative expression of our divine spark is wanting and need to be expressed. Pluto has given way for us to play in the heart without demanding too much duty and slowness. This is the time to start trailblazing your highest joy into the practical earthly realms of existence. No more sitting around and postulating, thinking, sharing ideas – the time to act is now. The dream is very real you know what you need to do.
New Moon Message
With such a heavy dose of fiery and expansive energy charging us up at the start of the 2015 year, the challenge now is to begin integrating this new wisdom and excitement into the physical world. Now the true mastery begins. We have stepped through the gateways of the blood moons and Solar and Lunar Eclipses. Those patterns are with us. Now we need to assimilate these new frequencies through the heart. Spirit into Matter!
This energy shift that we experienced will inevitably lead us along a new path. This path may not actually be supported by others. This is not to say it is the wrong path. It is your path. The training wheels have come off and it’s time to do it ourselves. The best way to learn is through direct experience. Only you know what that next step is.
So as we move further along the 2015 timeline our mission is to ground as much knowledge and personal truth that we have gained in the last years. It is important to realize that the value is in the effort. This is a learning and practicing phase. The more you can integrate your intuitive knowing – your higher self – into the physical realm, the more transformation you are going to see.
Finally, one last dimension to this alignment that I wish to highlight is the focus it will bring to belief systems built around the distortion of the external “savior”. This energetic alignment is simultaneously bringing to focus our distortions and the need for conscious heart-centered action. In contrast, the notion of an “external savior” causes incredible disempowerment, by instilling a sense of reliance on outside intervention for anything to truly change in our world.
I believe this is a very dangerous thread of knowledge. The true savior of humanity, and the Earth, is you, driven by the inner authority and the knowledge of your sovereignty as a manifestation of source/life. The purpose of this Earth experience is to live in balance and integration the forces of nature, and it is up to each of us to move, not wait to be led, in that direction.
It can be so easy to be led astray with information that, although it may feel good, creates disempowerment. Be sure to energetically feel if what you are reading and saying and doing and being serves you and Earth’s best interests. We are own saviors, here to reconnect to unity consciousness and bring back the natural balance between humanity and the planet we call home. No external deity can do this for us. The power exists within us, not without.
The Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse in Libra – The Passage into the Unknown
4th April 2015
A radical shift in our energetic levels has brought confusion to many of us over the last 2 days. The expression of the expansive yang energy has shifted internally and there is presently a slowing down effect being felt. The new energetic patterns that have flooded into the collective consciousness since the start of 2015 have been incredibly expansive, and we are evolving at a galactic rate.
As we moved through the Pluto Uranus Square on March 16th the stage was set for a total transformation of our perception; a rebirth. The New Moon and Total Solar eclipse on March 20th was an even more powerful alignment, reflecting our process of integration and transformation that continued through March, as we stepped through a significant astrological gateway. (For more on this, please see my last article: The Fire Trine, Blood Moon and Total Lunar Eclipse – The Gateway to Love.)
Now as we shift our awareness to today’s Full Moon in Libra, the third Blood Moon of the tetrad, we notice that the energy is reflecting a more stabilizing and grounding action. The integration process is well underway, as we learn to balance and master the 5th dimensional connection and unity consciousness that has emerged, while the Fire Trine alignment of Uranus, Jupiter and Saturn is adding some serious heat!
The Fire Trine
Uranus Aries trine Jupiter in Leo trine Saturn in Sagittarius.
The formation of the Fire Trine and activation of these 3 major planets is the most important series of alignments that I feel we should be observing, as they reflect to us the internal changes that we are each experiencing right now. This Fire Trine reflects cleansing and purifying and can be felt as a magnificent feeling of aliveness; the exhilarating sensation of spirit and destiny coursing through our veins.
To totally capture the essence of this alignment, I have broken down what each planet is reflecting to us and how to fully embody its highest potential into your energetic field.
This alignment is a call to action!
Jupiter (Leo) has been trailblazing its way through Leo, activating the heart centre and causing us to call to align our choices and essence with our sense of special destiny. The Sun/Leo archetype reflects that inner child element, the feeling that a child has when she/he says “when I grow up want to be a…”, and each and every one of us has throughout the last part of 2014 and throughout 2015 been confronting the aspects of ourselves that are not in alignment with that feeling of special purpose. As we transition into this Lunar Eclipse, all outdated beliefs, ideas, perceptions that do not support this new sense of purpose are coming up for review.
On 8th of April, Jupiter (intuition) will move into direct motion. This is when our creativity will begin to gain speed again. As we approach this time, it is important to be present, and finally let go of the the outdated internal structures that brought you here. Shift your attitude and choose a perspective that supports your new path.
The energy reflected by Uranus’s movement through Aries (since 2012) has catapulted us into a new direction, and at a quantum rate. The Uranus archetype reflects liberation and acceleration. It also reflects the blueprint of your soul contract. Just as any manifestation on Earth holds a blueprint, so do we. As Jupiter (intuition) and Uranus (deconditiong) make these contacts to each other at this significant time, we are being asked to apply and integrate the quantum shifts we have experienced in our inner lives to our outer lives, in both philosophy and in practice.
Embody your truth and authenticity, and embody the unity consciousness in all you do. As Uranus breaks away from its 3 year sparring session with its dear friend Pluto, the shift for us is now all about integrating our truth into the collective consciousness. We have much work to do. Through this process, real change will start to appear.
This alignment of Saturn in Sagittarius has not been active for very long. The effects of this alignment are certainly present, but I believe we have not yet experienced the extent of what this transit truly means for us. As it stands now, a brief alignment to Neptune has led us to be very aware of our current reality; how much of humanity is still embedded in illusions of separateness, and which belief structures and institutions perpetuate imbalance and polarity.
This aspect of our collective story reflects the energy behind much of what you see in the world today. Each of us carries trauma and pain that has been a direct effect of our disconnection from the Goddess; the Divine Feminine. We have lived in a society that doesn’t teach us to embrace our best, truest nature; that we deserve love, acceptance and the feeling of unity, and to honour it as both our birth right and guiding principle. Our physical world – the remains of the old paradigm – was built on foundations of competition and separation, of disempowering mistruths and constant reminders of the barriers between humans. Over periods of time, we collective forgot to love ourselves, and therefore each other. We learnt to suppress our individuality, and internalised the pain of our disconnection from Source.
I believe this transit of Saturn through Sagittarius will bring unresolved issues to the surface that reflect the areas in which must become more unified in our approach. This will not be an easy task. Saturn is retrograding through Sagittarius and he is pointing to Uranus at the moment. This is reflecting our current feeling; that need for complete freedom from belief systems that don’t support unity consciousness. An extremely powerful transit.
The Full Moon Message
The Blood Moon in Libra: balance, harmony, justice, equality, sharing, inclusion and acceptance.
A truly powerful transition is taking place internally for us right now. The start of 2015 ushered in a higher and faster paced energy pattern. As we approached the final Pluto Uranus Square we embraced the paradigm shift that was needed to move through the gateway that opened up for us on the 20th of March: the New Moon and Total Solar Eclipse. So much of the energy that has been felt has been of an incredibly high vibration, and so transformative.
As I mentioned in the beginning of this message, the now current Total Lunar Eclipse in Libra will be forcing a very different feel. The balancing act, grounding and integration process of these new paradigms is the next step. It is a process of coming back to Earth. We live here and need to take that internal shift and reflect it outwardly, in new and courageous ways. This actually is a process of taking what you now know to be true for yourself and living in alignment with it, embodying it in spirit and in action. The blueprint for the new Earth paradigm for us is now firmly rooted: sharing, inclusion, compassion, justice. Loving. These are the manifestations of the unity vibration.
The Lunar Eclipse will be grounding these energies back into our energy body and asking that we now live in alignment with these new energies. Honouring our own journey and seeing through the distortion and into the essence of humanity. We are citizens of the galaxy and we are here to embody the change. Honour the sacred unity heart centred essence with in you and in each other. The liberation and change lies in your willingness to be a part of the global transformation. This is a time in which we return back out into the open and bring the change we wish to see to the world.
The collective distortion that remains is still clearly present, however, and although flagging, its manifestations as competitive, divisive control structures have yet to be reformed and realigned. While those still ensnared in the constructs of war and separation continue to become a smaller (but no less publicized) demographic, it helps to understand and honour the process of awakening, and to recognize that our collective consciousness is evolving: a verb. Where ever you can, manifest your inner vibration in the outer world.
As the Lunar Eclipse passes over, we will be left with the after effects of this unfolding energy pattern. The message at this time is clear: embrace and create acceptance of individuality and empathy for the spiritual journey of others. Clear out any old patterns still lingering within your field that don’t serve you or the best interests of humanity. If it causes separateness and pain, it does not belong in your life. It is time to manifest the unity consciousness and walk the passage into the unknown.

Energy Update 16th March – 4th April 2015
Can you feel the intensity rising?
A very concentrated and potent influx of energy is flooding in for us right now. Starting with January of this year, the vibration of earth began amplifying. The final Pluto Uranus square (March 17th) followed by the total Solar Eclipse in Pisces (March 20th) raised the vibrational and frequencies to become ever more noticeable and influential. We are in the midst of a very significant astrological gateway. The Challenge I am sure many of you are feeling at this point is to stay present and balanced. The awareness of all distortions that reflect separateness are being made apparent. This process is allowing us to strengthen the 5th dimension; the unity consciousness within ourselves.
So what is going on?
On a very complex and deep level, the current influx of energy present of earth right now is aligning and balancing various energy patterns in your energetic field. All outdated patterns that hold a frequency that creates illusions of separateness and enforces pain, are needing to finally be rinsed out. Thoughts, ideas and emotional attachments that are old fear based expressions of yourself are no longer being reinforced in your life. These outdated lingering energetic debris are needing a final flush. The balance and frequency of earth, as you and she are interconnected, is no longer supportive of this lower vibration. This process right now, is about becoming adjusted to these new levels if being. It can seem overwhelming, it can feel as if experiences spiral out of control, even feelings of disruption, it could also feel as if you are just constantly rushed of your feet trying to keep up with all the demands. This process is forcing the issue of seeking to find harmony and balance. Coming into alignment. The more this is applied the greater the feeling of serenity will be experienced. You are literally learning to balance and integrate your multidimensional self in every moment; heart, mind, body and soul.
The Gateway to Love
As our connection to earth and the frequency she is vibrating on now becomes more aligned you will start to notice that you are faced with a lot of shadow work. The last stretch and path to mastery is present for us now. Each of us are being faced with the challenge of dealing with these very high vibrational energies. The opportunity to become more aligned with oneself and anchored in the unity consciousness is required in every moment. Going with the flow of things and allowing situations to unfold as they are is so vital at the moment. The 3rd dimensional ego has to be aligned and connected with the 5th dimensional higher self. We are, in each and every moment, needing to speak and action from the heart centred space within us. This is such a powerful time as this processes of stepping into ones true self, the awakened self, is unfolding. These challenges that are being experienced right now need to be paid attention to. Things can seem volatile and chaotic at times. When this is being experienced is it important to remind yourself of your connection to earth. It is important to take a step back and breathe and regain balance (Libra) and centeredness. When things seem to be spinning to fast, go with the flow. We are in the midst of a very powerful Fire Trine, with Uranus & the Sun in Aries, trine Jupiter in Leo trine Saturn in Sagittarius. Fire reflects cleanse and rebirth. Take a time out when needed and try to spend as much time in nature as you can. And when you are not able to step away from the chaos connect to the space of tranquillity and peace within you.
As we approach the Full Moon in Libra, which will be a Total Lunar Eclipse Blood Moon (April 4th), these energetic patterns will continue to amplify. Mainly because the moon will conjunct the Lunar Nodes which have been moving through Libra/Aries since last year February. This is a time of mastery and perfecting and will require us to reflect and adjust if we are to make use of this wonderful opportunity. The energy frequency and vibration on earth will be demanding the unity consciousness to be integrated. The vibration of unity consciousness, the 5th dimension, is present and our job now is to become comfortable with how that feels and works. In all situations at the moment anything that reflects or causes pain or suffering, demands more love, this is the gateway to love and unity living. I cannot stress the importance of this enough. More love to yourself! More love to everyone! Embrace, accept and heal all shadow aspects of yourself and those around you. Love is the answer. Do not try to reject, supress or ignore the shadow aspects of yourself for it will not work. When faced with the shadow, acceptance and love is the only solution. Allow the light to transform the darkness. This will be the only vibration that will be supported. Alignment and Balance rooted in Christ/Unity Consciousness expressed through the heart.

The Equinox, New Moon and Total Solar Eclipse in Pisces – Illumination and Re-Integration
March 20th, 2015
A final chapter in our evolutionary cosmic story is ending and humanity is standing at the brink of one on of the most important points in its collective history.
Yesterday’s Equinox and New Moon in Pisces brought with it an incredibly powerful pattern of energy. It is truly awe inspiring to be observing these alignments mark the ushering in of a vibration of energy that is so profoundly transformative.
This New Moon was perfectly aligned with a Solar Eclipse in Pisces at 29′ 27”. As soon as this formation happened, the Sun and Moon transitioned into the constellations Aries catapulting us into the new a direction. These vibrational patterns reflected illumination (Pisces) which we will now anchor into our collective evolution through integration (Aries). This is where we all fit in and play our part. It is time for the re-integration of your multidimensional self into the world. We have work to do! Unity Consciousness. Let’s do this!
Happy Birthday Aries! May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face.
Planetary Alignments Supporting Evolutionary Growth
Saturn Retrograde (11 March 2015 – 2 August 2015)
On the 11th of March 2015 the planetary archetype of Saturn moved into retrograde motion. This is a truly significant cycle for us. Over the last two and half years we have experienced intense clearing and cleansing of old energetic debris. This time was met with incredible confusion and tremendous loss. But now as you look back from this point to 2012, you can clearly see how far you have come. It has been a long and difficult road for many. Now, we have one final step left in the process.
I am pleased however to say that as Saturn retrogrades back into the final degrees of Scorpio, it won’t be tearing us apart but rather asking us to solidify the last two and a half year´s work. It is time to master our lessons. The universe is taking off the training wheels and saying “it’s your turn!” I feel that everyone deserves a huge heart-centered round of applause right now, for facing your demons and coming out the other end braver than ever before.
Finally I would like to say that Saturn does like it when you accept the challenges he brings you. So this retrograde cycle will ask us to put our new selves to the test, but know that if you accept these final challenges, he will bring you total abundance.
Ongoing Jupiter quincunx Pluto and Neptune
This planetary alignment is directly aiding in the progressive breaking down of outdated belief systems and idea’s that have supported our understanding of reality in the past. This alignment shakes up and asks for a renewal in perspective that now supports the frequency of your current energetic state.
It is so important to understand how your philosophy in life effects the nature of your perception and how you go about making choices in your life. Ask yourself Is my current philosophy allowing me to access the desire and reach my soul purpose? I encourage you to look at your belief system and see ifyour inner child and heart center is being honored.
On the collective level, the vibration is also reflecting the importance to see how our dreams and aspirations can be linked with aiding humanity. If we are seeking to make a difference we must align our philosophy with the greater good of humanity.
Saturn (Sagittarius) Square Mercury (Pisces) Neptune (Pisces) & quincunx Venus (Taurus)
This alignment is ushering in to our collective consciousness extremely important aspects of our spiritual growth. It is so important to understand that at this point, the vibration of earth and the state of our consciousness has risen to a point where we are clearing all the outdated energetic energies from our personal, and collective field. Life will no longer be support the old paradigms. As we align ourselves with this new frequency we will experience illumination.
What Saturn will be doing as it moves along its retrograde path, is revisit any beliefs that don’t support the highest good of your souls growth. With the party of Mercury and Neptune being in Pisces, you will be presented with new choices to practice loving yourself and others. We need to anchor these new heart centered beliefs into our life and to practice our new relationship to ourselves and others. In every moment you make high vibrational choices you are supporting our collective consciousness. The more you do it the more you will see it.
Spring Equinox and Solar Eclipse in Pisces
This alignment brought to a head the totality of 3 years’ worth of collective transformation. This alignment showed the total culmination of so many cycles of Earth’s and our collective incarnations. This inner transformation is the reason your life, over the last 3 years, has been filled with letting go and dissolving of personal attachments. Those outdated life scenarios needed to go in order for the new to emerge.
The 29´27 degree Total Solar Eclipse in Pisces (the last sign in the zodiac) reflected back to us the result of the last 3 years of total transmutation. It was like the point at the end of a film when it all comes together. From this perspective – from the mid-point of the Equinox – we were shown how our lives have shifted, and will continue to shift. It reflected to us the understanding or realization of life’s true nature — what it’s actually about, and where we fit in. Pretty impressive right?
This is such an incredible time to be alive in. This is the apocalypse!
(Please note: ‘Apocalypse’ translated literally from Greek, is a disclosure of knowledge, i.e., a lifting of the veil or revelation.)
7th Pluto – Uranus Square
On the 16th of March 2015 the final Pluto/Uranus square took place. This planetary alignment has been immensely impactful in what we have been experiencing in our lives since 2012, and have progressively reflected to us the lifting veils of our perception of reality – the ongoing shifting of our collective consciousness. On the 16th of March, these two planets made their final tension angle with each other at 15’17” of Capricorn/Aries. The after effects of this will be very visible as we move along our earth timeline. The deeper realizations and awakenings will become solidified and from now on there is no looking back.
Please read The 7th Pluto Uranus Square Alignment – The Final Shift for more information about this important alignment, as it encompasses the ‘big picture’ totality of what is happening, and offers insights into how we can gain an even deeper understanding as we move into this next phase of our lives.
New Moon Message
Illumination followed by integration.
At this point many may be wondering what the next step is. What to do with this new self in a world that looks very much the same as before?
Energetically, we have crossed into new uncharted territory that is not yet reflected by the constructs of our outer world, and the future may seem unsure as we are literally paving the way before us as we break new ground. We must bravely walk the new direction and allow our hearts to guide us.
This is a new chapter in our collective evolution. We are at the tipping point. We were first given the total awareness (New Moon total Solar Eclipse in Pisces) and now we are to integrate (Sun moves into Aries) our awareness into the collective consciousness. This is where our challenge really becomes clear. Up until this moment we have been working through, sorting out and cleansing our collective distortions. This has led us to start seeing the world for what it really is. This 3 year cycle also led us to close ourselves off from the world, cocooned and hidden from society. However the cleaning acts is done! The next task at hand is about going back into the world and beginning the real work. The integration of the new you. This processes will then allow for the next phase to unfold.
As an awakened soul seeing through the collective distortions and collective pain it is your task to begin raising the frequency of the planet by being a beacon of true undistorted light that you are. This is your mission! Our cosmic mission. Hold the torch and lead the way into the new paradigm. Your role is to simply listen to what your heart is guiding you to do, and to anchor the truth of your essence into every aspect of your being. To return to your natural state, and stand as a leader of the new paradigm in a world that does not yet reflect your inner vibration. This is the point where the change within must be reflected outwards in order for us to actually see that change. Those who continue seeking to see the progression of our collective awakening powered from the outside will be met with the past, as our outer world is a reflection of what and who we were and not what we are now.
So as a living example of your inner light, you need to integrate yourself back into the ‘matrix’ and start emanating clear and pure energy. By doing this, you are then allowing us to heal the collective pain in the souls who are about to embark on the journey that you just undertook. All the experiences that you had during your awakening is now needing to be implemented so that it can be a reflection of the change. You now see the collective pain in others and understand that this pain is a product of the collective distortions. You can see the pain in others that they are not yet able to see in themselves. You now know where you stand and are able to heal others. The healing begins with understanding that loving compassion and seeing the pure essence in all.
In this time we must be a living embodiment of unity. We cannot impose our awakened essence on to souls. It is not about forcing your beliefs and enlightening others. This will cause further rejection. We can be supportive by asking questions that allow others their own understanding, but we must allow the awakening experience to unfold naturally through direct experience. It is so important to not pass judgement or cause further division by saying I am more illuminated than someone else. We are all one. Healing the collective consciousness of mother earth is a processes of reuniting with the creator; with our true nature. Again, this process is just allowing yourself be who you truly are and allow your heart to guide you along the road.
Many souls will be reflecting the pain of the spiritual distortions as you integrate back into the world. We may sometimes be on the receiving end of the projections of others´ pain. You are an alchemist that has the power to transmute that pain. So when you are in situations where someone is projecting their pain of separateness, then remind yourself how you wish to be treated. Remember you are connected to the love vibration from within. That you do not need the love from the outside to fuel your soul. You have a direct connection to source. So even if we are breathing in pain we can transmute it and breathe out love. We must remember to love ourselves too. To make loving choices for ourselves. This is the time to not run away from the world but to re unite with it in ways that brings about the collective evolution; the love revolution. You are the change!
Full Moon in Virgo – Unity Consciousness
March 5, 2015
With the transition of the Sun into Pisces, the final phase of the yearly astrological cycle is upon us. This month’s Full Moon in Virgo sets in motion the final awareness needed for the integration of the next energetic imprint in our collective evolution. As a collective consciousness, the moment we have been waiting for is finally here and now.
What a transcendental feeling!
The gestation stage is over, the awakened soul is ready to go out into the world and begin shifting the collective. The new paradigm is here! Now… we have much work to do!
Key Planetary Alignments
Uranus, Venus & Mars in Aries Trine Jupiter in Leo and Trine Saturn in Sagittarius.
Illustrating the deep connection of cleansing and bringing in the new energetic imprints, this powerful alignment is creating some beautiful opportunities for us. The fire is cleansing away all old outdated cellular memories and collective distortions while simultaneously bringing us the inspiration to follow what we are being guided to do — to create a new path for us on Earth.
The heart element is ignited and raising the love vibration, offering courage and strength to bring out the best in you. Allow your higher self and best wisdom to guide you.
Pluto Quincunx Jupiter and Sun Quincunx Jupiter.
This alignment brings into the collective focus the need for aligning our feeling of special destiny with the inspiration of our connection to the Source. This is important as the forward motion toward our collective destiny begins firstly with seeing the unity in everything, and then building and aligning our unique path to express that sense of unity, and to be of genuine service to the Earth. This process will ensure that as we move forward into the new paradigm, our dreams and goals are linked with the overall betterment of humanity. Why? Because the world needs you.
See it this way… The universe is reflecting back to you the light that you shine. The more you are open to experiencing the unity in the diversity of creation, the more clearly you will see this reflected in yourself. To embody the energy we are being offered by this alignment, develop and implement a belief structure that is linked with your inspiration from Source. Only through self-determination – the expression of our unique gift – can we achieve the actualizations of our desires.
Sun and Neptune in Pisces Square Saturn in Sagittarius Square Moon in Virgo.
This powerful alignment plays an important part in influencing how we go about integrating the new Earth paradigm into our collective consciousness and creating changes in our reality. Being of service (Virgo) to yourself and to others is necessary to bring about the change we are seeking. In fact, the change is already here. Now, our service is to integrate our new perspective into the world. This perspective/light (Sagittarius) reflects back to us the greater spectrum of the diversity of creation that makes up our universe (Pisces) and allows us to see the world from a perspective of unity.
Firstly, understand that you are a multi-dimensional being experiencing itself in human form, and not a human trying connect to the spiritual. The key to rewriting our collective consciousness lies in recognizing and then reflecting outwardly the miraculous divinity of our very being. We must learn to see ourselves as the natural diversity of expressions of the same universal Source. I am a reflection of you, as you are a reflection of me.
The other side to this aspect is showing us the need to strengthen our intuition; to step into our energetic sensory perception (Neptune) and begin to discern (Virgo) what direction (Sagittarius) is right for you.
The body (Saturn) is making an evolutionary aspect to Neptune (collective consciousness). What this is reflecting back to us is the knowledge and awareness that as we become more and more awake to our true nature we will start to see that the body is an energetic sensor that reflects back to us the energy in our collective field of consciousness. So, with this perspective, the way we will be making choices and being of service to humanity in the new paradigm is through being intuitively guided to experience the exact moment necessary for the integration of the love/unity vibration needed on Earth.
Once we align with this purpose, and we understand the totality of our own connection to Source, we see that our paths are constantly filled with the inspiration and experience of love and not the absence of it. No longer do we hold the belief of an external savior. We are our own savior’s and as we begin to experience the new paradigm we learn to see our spiritual re empowerment comes from ourselves.
Full Moon Message
Connecting Heaven and Earth.
This is an incredible timeframe we are entering. One that is filled with connectivity and oneness. The unity vibration reflected back to us by our planetary system is at its full capacity. We no longer need to adapt to a life that does not reflect our true nature, rather, it is time to adapt our outer lives to reflect our true nature. The time for change is upon us. Welcome to the 5th Dimension.
The energetic cycles have completed and the gestation period is over. The new energy is present and assimilated. So what do we do with it now? We embody it! We begin the journey of bringing our collective Earth consciousness – the Unity/Love vibration – into our physical reality. Our jobs now are to start the processes of manifesting and strengthening this new vibration (Neptune in Pisces) into the world (Saturn in Sagittarius).
This is a very simple process. Everything is energy. Each and every one of us is a reflection of the Source, and as we vibrate the radiance of that Source, free of the distortions we have worked so hard to shake off, we naturally influence and transform the world’s vibration around us. The reflection of the world that you will live in will be a reflection of what you do to bring yours (Leo) and others’ (Aquarius) creativity and heart-centered energetic light into being.
You have already done the transformative work. You are the change. It is time for that new energy to shine so brightly and courageously. This is the time you follow your highest dreams and aspirations. They have been gifted to you for a reason, and you will be supported in pursuing them. Just follow your bliss vibration and see how quickly your dreams can manifest.
Going with the flow and anchoring the new light into the collective consciousness is our new direction. The last two and a half years, marked by Saturn transiting through Scorpio, were all about confronting and clearing out all the distorted collective energy. For much of the last two years we have been dealing with intense dark truths about the nature of humanity, and have become completely aware ofthe nonsense that today’s authorities and institutions project into our perception, and why.
As this processes has now come to completion, the next phase in our journey begins and that is anchoring the high vibrational energy (Neptune in Pisces) into reality (Saturn in Sagittarius). The old outdated forms and energy are no longer supported. With both Mars and Venus’ recent journeys past Uranus in Aries, the new direction is here. There is no looking back. The whole show and movement of energy is flowing forward. You will notice that thoughts, ideas and perceptions of the past no longer feel right or make sense. It might feel difficult to connect to the old perception of yourself. Exciting right?
We have reached a point where we are not clearing and cleansing ourselves of the old but navigating our way into the unknown future, guided by our intuition and driven by our hearts. How you do this is by being the truest reflection of yourself in every moment. As the new paradigm to become crystallized into our body and the world starts to see your reflection sparkling, it will start to reflect back to you who you are in brilliant clarity. Be open-hearted and allow your intuition to guide you. This is absolutely vital to being able to navigate your way through the collective ocean we’re swimming into.
Full Moon Mantra
I have realised the oneness within me, as I have within you. I see that we are all merely different expressions of the endless possibilities and manifestations of the ONE. I see you as the reflection of myself as you reveal to me more of what I am yet to find within myself.
In this space I recognise that all that I AM is a perfect expression of creation; that all of my “imperfections” are in fact perfect by Universal design. I see the beauty and love in all that is. I now see with clarity. I see beyond what the eye is showing, and I see through what the mind is saying. I see with my heart and soul. I AM aligned. I AM connected.

New Moon in Aquarius and Pisces – The Dissolution of Reality
February 18, 2015
Yes, the title of the article is correct. This is quite an interesting New Moon formation. The New Moon falls on 29 degrees Aquarius, however the formation then trickles over into Pisces, really setting the theme for this lunar cycle.
Since the start of 2015 we have been experiencing an incredibly heightened sense of energy flowing through our collective consciousness. The energetic vibration on the planet at this time is reaching a new peak; our journey along the river has reached the ocean. This dual New Moon formation between Aquarius and Pisces reflects a period of vast polarity and change. During this cycle, so much energy and forward momentum will be unleashed that unless you are ready to ride the wave, you will likely find yourself lost in chaos, searching for dry land.
This month’s new moon message comes with two very clear paths. Are you in total alignment, or out of alignment?
Happy Birthday Pisces! May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face.
The Neptune/Pisces Archetype (Universal Life Force)
Before we look at the planetary alignments for this New Moon, it will be beneficial to first understand the nature of the Pisces/Neptune archetype.
The archetype of Neptune/Pisces reflects the totality of creation; the universe. The whole universe can be described as the Neptune archetype. It is the manifested and the un-manifested — all that is and all that can be imagined. It is the unified field of consciousness.
From our human perceptive Neptune/Pisces reflects the totality of our collective unconscious. You know that feeling you have on Friday when everyone is collectively feeling the weekend experience? It is a shared experience by millions around the globe. Unity, oneness.
The Pisces/Neptune archetype is rooted in the process of creation itself. It represents the total experience of birthing something, and its culmination from source. The return to the ocean, the return to earth. The completion of a cycle. So, at a soul level, Neptune/Pisces is linked strongly with this is the gradual journey of aligning the soul with its spiritual truth. When we are faced with circumstances that are out of our control, we learn the ultimate lesson of surrender. Through that experience we re-align our subjective egos to the knowledge of a higher power; the source of creation.
I am sure many of you have been it situations in your lives where experience has been out of your control, and the words you say to yourself include things like “it’s now in god’s hands” or “we have to just pray it all works out”. This language, conditioned into our society’s vocabulary, recognizes something far more powerful than the human condition but at the same time, induces a sense of helplessness and separation from that power. A deep painful truth here is that this sense of being overwhelmed can lead to states in which we detach and create illusions that serve and protect our inner reality by helping us “escape” from the reality of our experience. Numb the pain.
The purpose of the Neptune energy really is to support our state of spiritual integration; to bring awareness of the spiritual nature along with the physical, and unify the unconscious and conscious experience. At present, Neptune is actually moving through its natural sign of Pisces – one reason why we are all resonating so much with this spiritual awakening.
Planetary Alignments for this New Moon
Saturn in Sagittarius Square Neptune in Pisces
This ongoing square is playing a major role as it reflects the deep psychological issues and collective pain we are collectively healing, created by belief systems that promote idealised external gods, cause mass alienation and teach of separation from source. This is an important cycle for us all. We are being asked here to see beyond the veils of deception and be very clear about what the nature of reality is really about. With that, the deceptions that authority figures propagate are becoming more and more apparent.
Personally I believe that this cycle brings with it incredible rewards as we collectively strengthen our knowledge of our true essence and thereby our connection to source. This is a time where you have to find your own personal connection to the higher self and begin integrating that inspiration into your life that leads to the fulfilment of direct knowledge and experience. This cycle is also deeply effecting the way we see reality and is slowly bringing about huge change. As these outer planets (and the energetic cycles they reflect) move relatively slowly, we have to be patient.
Jupiter in Leo Quincunx Pluto in Capricorn and Chiron in Pisces, and Trine Uranus in Aries
This alignment reflects to us the process of deconstruction and subsequent healing we are experiencing on earth right now, as alignment weaves through the collective consciousness, bringing to life the beautiful tapestry of source energy that is unfolding for us. This alignment is also a direct reflections of our karmic story.
As this alignment reflects in its connections to the Modal axis of the Moon, many souls on Earth at the moment are a part of two realities. This energetic push toward transformation really makes our individual reality go one of two ways — we are either experiencing the unfolding of madness in the world as we break away from the past and discover a new paradigm, or alternatively, we are experiencing the unrest and destruction of a collapsing civilization. We can either surrender to the process of deconstruction and healing, or fight it. Either way the underlying truth is being experienced; an ending of what has been.
On the deepest level this alignment is highlighting and giving us the opportunity to choose our perspective and experience of the way an entire era of Earth’s history culminates. We can either experience it as victims of an impending “end of the world” scenario and “pray to god” it will work out, or we can feel the revival of our personal sovereignty and actively walk the path of personal empowerment. This is a chance to cleanse the wounds of the past and leave behind 6,000 years of spiritual disempowerment. It is time to reclaim your right to be alive, to follow your dreams, and shine your inner light to the world. The world is waiting on your brilliance. Will you be a part of the change? What are you going to do to make tomorrow better, today? Only you know what to do.
Mars and Venus in Pisces
Both Mars (free will) and Venus (relationship to self and others) have been trudging through the swampy vibration that is Pisces energy. Mars has been moving slightly ahead of Venus and has been setting off all sorts of issues relating to hypersensitivity, feelings of absolute chaos, disorder and lack of direction, while Venus, tagging along in Mars’ wake, has been triggering off the feeling of brain fog, creating a spacey void were everything merges into one.
Although it has caused quite a stir for us, this particular movement of Mars and Venus through Pisces is actually very important for the direction humanity is heading into now. As April draws near, a new dawn relative to our collective consciousness will begin. A fresh and clear perspective will be available for all of us. We will experience the culmination of this phase of Mars and Venus in April, and when that comes about, we will be ready and revived waiting to take on life and follow our sense of destiny with the excitement and enthusiasm akin to a child waiting to open its presents on Christmas day.
The winged messenger Mercury moved into direct motion on the 11th of February. This marked the end of a significant retrograde cycle for Mercury. In synchronicity with Mars and Venus, as mentioned above, Mercury Retrograde brought up old karmic wounds that needed our very detailed attention. Now that Mercury is in direct motion again, he will revisit those scenarios with us again and give us the opportunity to react to them in a way that is self-empowering. Pay close attention to this opportunity as much healing is available for us here.
The New Moon’s Message
As the Sun and Moon connect to form a beautiful New Moon, the Universe and all its beauty will reflect to you one of the most amazing and inspirational months. This is the point in our collective evolution where the crest of the wave is about to start returning back to the ocean. The sheer force and power that will be flowing through us will be immense. Another way to describe the feeling is like the moment before a roller coaster sends you down the steep drop. The feelings of raw excitement, anticipation and chaos. The shear rush of adrenaline when the ride finally drops. Pure ecstasy.
Although, along with this adventurous journey comes the need for courage. That rush of our new reality can make us doubtful, if we allow it. Find the inner Lion and roar with great strength from this place of ecstasy and inspiration.
During the last couple of weeks we experienced Mars and Venus move through Pisces as mentioned above. This alignment brought up very powerful and deep aspects of our collective psyche that reflect spiritual disempowerment; feeling overpowered and victimised by life. This is an incredibly important part of our awakening that needs to be healed – awareness being the first step in this healing process. In our programmed “Matrix” culture we are constantly shown our disempowerment; constantly reminded of the absence of love; constantly shown that only certain people experience prosperity. We are lead along paths of deception that make us believe that this madness is inherent to our very humanity (original sin), and that we will only be saved from the madness by some external saviour. The last statement is the most disempowering of them all.
In contrast, the Pisces archetype reminds us that we are our own gods, each and every one of us. That we each belong to a collective consciousness that unifies everything. That the source of creation is the only thing, therefore everything that is a part of it is source itself, experiencing itself through you. Step back allow you vision to transcend the 3D and observe yourself as the multidimensional being that you are. Embrace your essence and allow a sense of sovereignty to guide your personal re-empowerment. Free yourself from the shackles of personal self-doubt and the effects of fear based propaganda. Decondition yourself and find the perfect harmony available with the Source.
Lastly, as the Sun moves through Pisces it will bring about the completion and ending of an entire cycle. That which began in April last year is closing. The zodiac has finished its year’s passage and is ready to dissolve the fabric of reality and begin preparing for a new chapter in our collective human experience. One that, I know, many of you are truly excited to begin.
Many can feel something big is on the horizon, and this month will reflect back for us the process of finding the ultimate meaning. The metamorphosis of our individual and collective consciousness is here. Our consciousness is ready to move from the chrysalis of its previous existence to emerge as a mesmerising butterfly ready to bless the world with its enchanting essence.
All the events this month will continue to unfold in one of two ways as the fabric of reality dissolves and dissipates. We can either be aligned with the process and merge with it, or we can hold on to the dissolving reality and feel the crisis and fear creep in. How we experience this polarity is up to us. What we have here is an opportunity to begin in April, as the new cycle in Aries begins, with a fresh sense of vitality and new direction.
New Moon Mantra
I have left behind so many layers of who I thought I was, and what I thought I knew. I have removed so much to find so much – my source. I have become a world citizen, unified yet unique, connected to the Earth and the Universe. I have learned to find flow and to allow life to guide me… to just be.
But now… I am feeling restless. Like there must be something more than this. Like something big is about to happen. I feel that it is just around the corner… urging me on. I know I must first let go… I am ready… to lose myself… to dive into the abyss.
Full Moon in Leo – We Come One!
February 3, 2015
We have reached the half way point in this month’s Aquarius cycle. The full moon lands in a very powerful spot for us this month, and I feel it will bring very powerful and transformational awareness. This vibrational patterns reflects to us the awareness of dissolving barriers to bring unification and the importance of our individuality. A very powerful placement of the Sun over the south Node of Neptune also brings fundamental pieces of our collective ancestral awareness into focus, so we are able to integrate and reshape our destiny in order for us to make the changes we seek on our planet.
It is time to open our hearts, stand tall and be courageous! The world is waiting for your divine energetic imprint. Are you ready to show it?
There are many themes to this Full Moon. Here are the key planetary alignments helping us along the way…
Mars Conjunct Chiron
Removing victimhood and reclaiming your sovereignty.
Recently Mars travelled past Chiron in Pisces and brought up deep insight into our awareness. On Earth, stretching back over many thousands of years, the collective “matrix” has been programmed to instill deep fear and disempowerment into a now dependent humanity. This powerful psychological hold has brought us to become victims to our own nature. Through constant bombardment of social queues – what to do, how to act, even how to look – we progressively lost touch with our own sense of intuitive guidance.
The Soul has its own personal guidance system that reflects how it needs to act relative to its own personal, immediate environment and circumstances. Yet due to the constant subtle but disempowering messages we receive about ourselves, have come to seek guidance outside of ourselves before checking in with our own higher self. This externalizing of our power has led to a deep psychological pattern of feeling victimised by situations and circumstances that we feel are out of our control. That’s the trap of the “matrix” — but we are collectively now realizing those circumstances can be changed.
It is time to reclaim our sovereignty; to take action and to take control our own personal destiny and become the leading edge of our life’s direction. And from that place of personal sovereignty, and respect for the sovereignty of others, we can reshape our shared destiny.
This will be a sensitive and personal time for all of us, so be careful to not project your pain or expectations onto others. Instead, understand the pain of others and connect through recognizing that we are not separate, but One.
Ongoing Pluto Square the karmic North and South Node.
At the core of our personal and collective transformation this vibrational pattern is making the biggest changes. Our value systems have been completely altered and many have realigned with transcendental values that reflect a deeper state of awareness.
Unfortunately, for many of us, some friends and family members might still be holding on to the pre-existing patterns. This naturally leads to a clash of values and perspectives. In these moments, offer your truth in a manner that is with courage and a sense of gratitude that, even through the appeared separateness, your perspectives are from the same source. Remember: the matrix does not encourage real questioning or empowerment. Offer support and allow for the fact that, for many, the leap into new understandings can be a very daunting experience.
The Moon is also in a tight in-conjunction with Pluto and Jupiter. This alignment reflects the deep realisation of how our special destiny can be linked with the overall social structure that enables the benefit of Earth’s community. It reminds us the importance of being responsible for our own life and destiny, and to allow our dreams to be manifested through self-determination.
Saturn Sagittarius square Venus and Neptune in Pisces.
A very deep and reflective alignment is taking place here. The focus that this vibration brings is an integral part of the whole process. Whenever Saturn is involved, we are naturally looking at the archetype of cause and effect which leads to the crystallisation of karmic actions. We are faced with our karmic after effects of how we have lived life on Earth. The importance of taking responsibility for our past is what is at hand. We just need to reflect and change pre-existing patterns.
Venus is traveling together with Neptune causing us to clear out any illusions that are of the old outdated thoughts and definitions we have of ourselves and through extension, our global image of each other. An alignment with the truth: that unification brings us to remembrance of our true essence. Our origins are about seeing beyond our illusions of separateness. This is a huge and important value to integrate into our lives: truly being here for your fellow brothers and sisters.
Jupiter and Mercury Retrograde.
Mercury and Jupiter in evolutionary astrology reflect the function of the left (Mercury) and right (Jupiter) brain. The right brain reflects the intuitive knowing and collective experiences we have in our lives. It is the space we go to when speaking (Mercury) about our personal truths (Jupiter). The function of conveying truth is taking knowledge we hold and using language as a tool to convey our philosophy, through words. Just as I have done through this article.
When these planets are moving in retrograde motion we experience an inverted expression of the vibration. Like when night falls, we internalise our thoughts and reflect. These planets’ current status is reflecting to us the need for deeply reflecting on the past 3 months of forward movement, re-examining experiences that have brought us here, and intergrating he ‘life lessons’ they offer. On the deepest level, Jupiter and Mercury in retrograde reflects to us the understanding that we need to integrate the ‘perspectives’ of the left and right brain. Intuition and logical discernment. Science and source.
Full Moon Message
Inter-dependence is a fundamental law of nature.
As I mentioned above, there are many themes to this Full Moon, all of which provide very important key elements we can integrate into our daily life for the ongoing betterment of humanity.
The first part of our awareness needs to be drawn to our current philosophical structure. In our time space reality, we are really unable to conceive the totality of creation. Because this is the case, a natural orientation towards creating a belief system is developed in order to make sense of the phenomena we call reality. Conversely our beliefs and philosophies create and influence how we experience our reality.
What is your current life philosophy and how is it aiding you to follow your destiny?
If your belief system contains any illusions of separateness, then this is what you will see in the outside world. We all have to look at how our personal philosophies contain the idea of seeing our fellow human as separate by race, gender and beliefs. Our karmic responsibility to ourselves is to seek a higher state of balance, and to recognize our ourselves as interconnected. If we view ourselves in the context of the world around us, diversity is a beautiful and intrinsic part of nature. In nature, all aspects co-create as one, thriving alongside each other in a harmonised way. So can we! The first step is realizing we can.
Another theme I would like to bring up is the awareness that, for an incredibly long time, our consciousness has been experiencing a cycle of darkness. Humanity and our collective consciousness have been “asleep” to our true nature. This cycle is now coming to an end. We are in the process of awakening and moving into the light or awareness. We are reclaiming our sovereignty and re-empowering ourselves.
As we begin this process we will need to identify and remove any beliefs that disempower us. I believe these beliefs will be brought to our attention – individually and collectively – in significant ways over the next coming years. During this period, it will be important to remember your right to free choice and discovery of self-awareness. This is a time of finding your purpose. To live a life that brings you joy and energizes your life-force.
Understand too that, like all expressions of life force, human philosophies are diverse. Each of us, through our diversity, experiences and teaches a different aspect of the totality of creation. We will never all be “the same”, that is not nature’s way. We must learn to embrace our differences and celebrate our uniqueness, and not just in philosophy but in practice. Only this understanding will naturally unify us.
Logic and Intuition
Another aspect I would like to explore further is the imbalance between the right and left brain hemispheres – the logical and intuitive mind. This divide exists deeply in our collective psyche, reflecting a divide within humanity. Yet, without the balance between the left and right brain, the heart and the mind, we will struggle to completely embody the actual reality of what it means to be human and to manifest our true power. This leaves us not able to see our abundance.
The outdated philosophies of our consumerist society conditioned humanity to struggle with “seeing” abundance. We have become desensitized to being bombarded with images things we didn’t know we “want” and “need” and, always wanting more, we fail to appreciate the magnificence of what we have. This is due to the illusion of separation between Spirituality (right brain) and Science (left brain). Again, with our energetic focus out of balance, our dualistic nature goes unreconciled and we lose our sense of unification with life, limiting both our intuition and our logical understanding of the world.
Today, there is a polarization of spirituality and materialism. We have to transcend dualistic consciousness that promotes the either/or mind-set. There is plenty to go around,
Having money with no spiritual understanding gives the experience of basic materialism and existence on Earth with no spiritual depth – being separated from the inner. Being spiritual and having no money keeps one trapped in a space of being powerless to do or create anything in the outer world. Neither are balanced states. The Universe itself does not withhold anything from us; we withhold it from ourselves, through our choices, thought processes and emotional patterns, and from each other, through imbalanced economic and resource distribution structures. Structures that we now realize can and must be changed, and brought back into alignment with the natural laws of the Universe.
It is time start being a beacon of light for yourself and for the rest of humanity. It is time to share what you know and action what you believe. It is time to re-empower yourself and humanity and move out of the shadow and into the light. This is the time to bring your dreams into reality. This is the time to understand you are phenomenal. This is the time to expose the world to your inventions and innovations.
Full Moon Mantra
As I remove more layers of old beliefs of myself and the world around me, I find more of who I truly am. Beneath those layers, I discover my unique gift to the world. I know that I am here to share it, to light up and shine the way for others as they awaken. I am tuning in to my own personal song. I am finding the courage to sing it aloud, even if I do it alone. For I know that as I do, others will begin to join me…
I am ready to be my authentic self. I am ready to live my dream.
Watch me! Join me!
New Moon in Aquarius – The 5th Element
January 20, 2015
The zodiac does not enact life, it merely reflects it.
The 20th of January marks the arrival of the Sun and Moon into the constellation Aquarius. Another celestial cycle has come to an end and with it comes the unfolding of the next chapter in our current awakened state. It is time to break free from the norms and embrace your own personal liberty.
This month’s cycle brings with it some amazing celestial gifts that I am sure many of you have been waiting for. Although in typical Uranian fashion, the route to accessing the truth that is available is delivered to us in an offbeat and fragmented way. The next two months will have a heavy influence on how and where we start steering the ship as we delve deeper into the year of 2015. I encourage you to stay and digest the information contained in this report as there is a lot to cover. Are you ready?
Happy Birthday Aquarius! May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face.
Aquarius/Uranus Vibration (Deconditioning)
Through the Aquarius/Uranus archetype, we learn how to break the form of any conditioning that has come before. This process is needed for evolution to proceed, providing an evolutionary force that allows things to move beyond the old and outdated.
Of course, with change comes trauma, and the dynamic of trauma is also represented through Aquarius. From the human perspective, the need for security is deeply rooted in our psychology, and security comes from self-consistency – something that is known, and has structure (Capricorn). When the Uranus energy enters our lives and breaks that form, it induces change. It is difficult for us to accept change in an instant, and we often experience emotional trauma as a result. Reflect honestly on your own life when these situations happen to you.
Another core aspect reflected by the Uranus/Aquarius archetype is the soul’s long term memory, both from the past and the future. (Time is an illusion, right?) There is a direct link between Mercury (the conscious mind) and Uranus (the unconscious mind). Simply put, we have short term memory (Mercury), and long term memory (Uranus). During hypnosis, the memory areas that are explored and accessed emanate from the Uranian field in your soul. All of us have this symbol somewhere in our birth chart. It is our unconscious identity.
On another layer, Aquarius reflects the nature of living in groups and tribes – the Collective. The reflection of a group has an identity, and this identity is a way in which we are able to understand ourselves, even define ourselves, because the group will reflect to us our own personal interests, drives and even our nature.
In the context of this discussion, these three core themes are currently very present and are manifesting deeply within our collective consciousness. For many, the global awaking started to really take place when Uranus moved into Aries in 2012. In the sign of Aries, Uranus reflects the de-conditioning of the self and the re-ordination of new self-discovery.
Pretty neat! We are letting go of our old conditioned selves and re-inventing our new selves, through a constant universally-supported process of self-discovery.
Mercury and Jupiter retrograde
This is an interesting aspect here; both Mercury (logic) and Jupiter (intuition) are in a reflective (retrograde) state. Their intention is moving inward. When both these symbols are retrograde they directly point towards to the planet Uranus; to the liberation of old thought forms (mercury retrograde) that lead to a deeper awareness of outdated truths (Jupiter) that are holding you back as you seek to find the special destiny you are working towards. This creates a total energetic rewriting of the left and right brain hemispheres, and supports a process of flushing outdated thought forms that no longer facilitate the higher dimensional consciousness that is currently being experienced on Earth right now.
To add emphasis to this, Mercury goes stationary in Aquarius on the day of the New Moon. As a planet is turning retrograde, it appears to stop. This is what we call stationary. The way this is energetically experienced is like holding a magnifying glass and focusing in on whatever the planet is pointing to. As mercury is in Aquarius, Uranus is that magnified focus point.
So, why the intense focus on Uranus?
Uranus conjunct the South Node of the Moon.
Every single one of us has been for quite some time now being hearing the sentiment “let go of the old”… “Let go of old fear based experiences”… and so on. As mentioned above, the Uranus energy has a direct effect on fracturing our outdated, crystalized habits and patterns. The South Node of the moon symbolizes to us aspects and parts of our self that contains all our experiences. It also reflects how we nurture and feel safe within our lives as the past reflects the known and the known reflects security.
Do you see how these symbols together are manifesting for us? Freedom from the known! But why? Evolution!
Currently we have Pluto squaring the Nodes of the moon. As I have written before this is an incredibly significant aspect for us. Pluto symbolically reflects our unconscious emotional security. Deeply grained in our security patterns lies our sense of personal empowerment. Insecurity comes from feeling vulnerable, which in turn makes you feel disempowered. Paradoxically security causes us to experience limitations which leads to stagnation.
For evolution to occur we have to embrace the new at every point, as it opens up newer experiences that leads to more awareness and more shedding of outdated conditioning. Growth. Personal empowerment.
So what we have at the moment on the deepest level (Pluto) are two current realities. There are people who are “awake” to this process, who are seeking drastic change in the world from past realities (Uranus in Aries and South Node), and feeling a sense of destiny and a thirst for new personal empowerment (Pluto)… And then there are those you are “asleep”, feeling insecurity and loss, experiencing trauma and the fracturing of their securities (Uranus in Aries and South Node), perceiving that they have no control over their lives, and seeking to reinforce their sense of personal security from outside of themselves. This ultimately creates a feeling of disempowerment (Pluto in Capricorn).
So, as Uranus moves into total conjunction with the South Node of the Moon, which then will complete square Pluto, we will have will be final asked to zero in on our desires and be present with whatever might be holding you back from being the new empowered you. Pluto is offering and asking you to reflect on your desires. Desire works in polarity. This leaves you with a choice:
Will you choose to stay with the old outdated patterns in your life and follow the path of consensus? Or will you embrace your shifting reality and take the opportunity that is unfolding for you right now, in each moment?
The choice you make in each moment will determine whether you align with the new reality that is unfolding for you right now, or resist it, clinging instead to illusory external securities. It’s up to you. Do you desire to be a part of a new paradigm? Do you have the feeling of inner security to needed for you to embrace this changing reality?
It isn’t just pre-existing patterns of behavior but also sleep cycles that are being radically changed during this period. I am sure you will notice that your normal sleep cycle is off? One of the main reasons for this is that the pineal gland is being stimulated through the electrical system of Uranus (Uranus correlates to the electricity within the brain) via the Mars transit through Pisces – which is, at this point in time, actually completely conjunct Neptune.
Neptune has specific correlation to the pineal gland. The pineal gland secretes a protein called melatonin which reflects on how we dream/sleep and therefore how we dissolve all physical perceptions of reality. The erratic vibration of Uranus is directly effecting and causing sleep disturbances. As this process unfolds, and with the placement of Mercury, Venus and now the Sun moving through Aquarius, the old fabric of reality is beginning to shatter.
Expect the unexpected!
South Node of Neptune in Aquarius – Our Spiritual Roots
Here we have something extremely special. The South Node of Neptune, again, reflects the past and – in terms of where we as humans today – helps us find our origins. As we know, Neptune will reflect our natural relationship to the Source of all things. We are realigning ourselves with the natural understanding that everything is connected; that we are all Source energy expressed in different ways.
If everything in the universe is part of creation, then how can one part be superior to another? Surely any belief that we are separate from source, nature or god is merely an illusion.
All that separates us from the Source is us, our minds, what we think we are, verses what we truly are. This is what we are returning to. We are releasing the distortions of these limited, illusory beliefs of our reality. So, with the recent movement of Mercury and Venus moving off the South Node of Neptune, an incredible about of focus has been and is still about understanding what we are essentially, then with that awareness, learning to integrate that understanding into the physical world so that we are able to then start forming new thought patterns and manifesting our reality in alignment with natural laws of creation.
New Moon Message – Connecting Heaven and Earth
As we enter the next two month’s cycles, much of the focus will be about preparing for when Jupiter goes direct on 8th April. Simultaneously the New Moon in Aries will bring about the “GO!” energy that everyone is waiting for. So it is important to take a step back (Aquarius) and review the current situations you have in your life at the moment, then compare them to what you would like your life to look like come the end of March/start of April. There is a sequence (Virgo) to how we manifest, and this time right now is about reflecting and re-adjusting what we want, and what we don’t.
Here are some perspectives to think about when refining your ideas for your future.
The Aquarius vibration teaches us about group co-operation. It helps you find people who are willing to aid you on your journey to self-actualization. Recognizing what groups you participate in (formal or otherwise) can help give you a clear sense of your identity.
Groups offer support and enable larger ideas to be manifested. Groups help build stronger communities. By working with others for the needs of the community, bringing whatever you can to the table, a little bit of effort can make a big change – personally and communally. Identify with groups that reflect your soul interests, which will naturally allow exchanges of similar spiritual vibration, and which will help you bring your gift to the world while you help others bring theirs.
Warmth and sharing, overcoming loneliness and alienation, the interchange of spirit and understanding; these are the foundations on which our communal tendencies are built. The unity at the heart of our Earth community lies in linking your special purpose and destiny with that which helps build and strengthen our connection to our fellow Earth citizens, and to our homeland.
The 5th Element
To understand this synchronicity and to fully understand what is transpiring behind the scenes for us, we have to look back at the 11:11 alignment that happened when Mars and Pluto connected at 11 degrees on 11/11 last year. On that day we had a Cardinal Grand Cross shift which began shifts in our awareness. These shifts are felt subtlety and can only be fully experienced when integrated into the physical over a great deal of time.
11:11 represents the unity of all things; that we are all of the same vibration even though we appear to be separate in the physical. It also symbolizes the number 4; the four elements of our Earth combine to create the One; the totality of everything. When we see these numbers we are being asked to pay attention to this connection.
When we experienced this 11:11 alignment, we were asked to integrate the four: body, spirit, emotion and mind (Cardinal Grand Cross) and then to completely embody them through the flesh and spirit as one — the alignment of ego, source and desire (Water Trinity). This marked the awareness of necessary change that then created the space for us to now fill it. Now we are at a point in our awaked state that requires us to add that special ingredient into our lives.
What makes the 4 elements of our physical reality come alive? The 5th element.
On this New Moon we will be experiencing another extraordinary alignment that is directly connected to the 11:11 alignment, as Mars conjuncts Neptune in Pisces at 5.55 degrees.
Pisces/Neptune reflects source energy; the manifested and un-manifested, the very essence of all. It cannot be defined nor can it be altered. It can only be experienced. This source energy is also called the 5th element or the 5th dimension. To experience the Source we must integrate it into the physical. We do this through the 4 elements. The elements air, fire, water and earth are all ways for us to experience Source and co-create within it. In order to truly experience this co-creation, as we are here to do, we must raise our awareness from within our physical reality to the creative Source that is interacting with it, and underlies it. This is where we find our divine purpose. This is also where we find the courage to interact with life freely – as we were meant to.
The next step is yours.
What do you wish to colour the world with? What drives and inspires you?
Find and connect to the essence of your being! Start by removing everything that is not original to you. What you are looking for is undefined. Be present with yourself, you will experience the truth of what you are looking for – the light that already exists within you. The space you are wanting to be with, and work from, is the stillness that resides within. It is pure serenity, stillness and openness. Like the vast starry galaxy that displays itself up above, the 5th element – our connection to Source energy – is the essence of the life force that brings all the 4 physical elements together.
It is time to embrace the 5th element – to connect Heaven and Earth into your very being. What inspires you?
New Moon Mantra
My mind is still. My heart is open. My body is my temple. I can feel the inspiration to do great things in the world – for the world. I know that there is a greater purpose to life than to play make-believe in a man-made world that isn´t structured for my true nature. A world that isn´t structured for nature at all.
I will use these tools I have been given, this gift of life. I will use this body and this mind, and I will fuel it with the love and inspiration to create a better reality… to co-create a reality with my fellow Earth citizens in which we all bring our gifts to each other, and to our homeland. However great or small, whatever it is I am called to do… I will do it. I am not afraid to leave my securities behind, for I am way too excited about this new direction — about this new life and this new world.
I am ready for change. I am the change. I am.
Full Moon in Cancer
As above so below – as within so without
January 4, 2015
We are arriving once again at an important evolutionary gateway and with no surprise, this full moon comes with powerful emotional changes. The message is very clear- a big shift is on its way! This Full Moon offers incredible insight and will teach very significant lessons on how we should go about integrating our personal awareness into our collective awareness. An innovative and exciting chapter is on the horizon. Do you feel it?
Key Planetary Alignments
The shift in awareness will be primarily focused on these key planetary alignments. As the full moon lands at 14 degrees Cancer it will naturally create a crisis in action square to the south node of the Moon (preexisting beliefs) and Uranus (liberation). Adding another layer to this is its opposition to Pluto (evolution) which is also conjunction the sun (creative direction). The moon then also squares the North node in Libra (balance), this then completes the sequence and forms a Grand Cross in the Cardinal signs. Here is a quick description of what cardinal energy means.
In nature you can see 3 main vibrational patterns that reflect to us how the cycle of life unfolds. Cardinal vibration, fixed vibration and lastly mutable vibration. I love to use this story to illustrate the simplicity of these energies. The growth of a plant/tree has 3 main steps. The seed of the plant begins its life beneath the ground. The first action and processes in a plants life is the emergence of the seed breaking through the soul/ground. This energy is very direct and focused and has a lot of power behind it. This is in order to break through the soil. The seed breaking through the soil symbolizes a new direction or growth. The cardinal vibration of Aries/Libra/Cancer/Capricorn all reflect this action and behavior. Once the seed has broken through it then takes on a role in which it shoots up straight and takes on a very fixed and stabilizing approach. The trunk of a tree or stem reflect stability and consistency. Fixed vibration of Taurus/Scorpio/Leo/Aquarius. Lastly at some point we see the branches of the tree start to form. We see that multiple directions and diversity emerge. We see an expansion and exploration of the surrounding space. The mutable vibration of Gemini/Sagittarius/Pisces/Virgo.
What this story illustrates is that with the Full moon in cancer (cardinal) and the aspects it’s making to other planets in other cardinal signs show a new evolutionary cycle is emerging and that we are breaking through new ground. The Full Moon will bring with it feelings of anxiety and deep feelings of vulnerability and this will be due to the need to break free from the known. This shift will bring with it very deep psychological transmutation and the opportunity to release deep karmic ties to, and associations with who you are which no longer sever your best interest at heart right now.
Mars and Venus in Aquarius
The voyage of these two inner planets through the constellation Aquarius are triggering of the cardinal grand cross that I have written about above. Because they have direct rulership of the South node (Aries/Mars) and North node (Libra/Venus) their association to our karmic story is very valid. These two are offering the lessons of stepping back and detaching from the immediate environment and objectifying the reality around us. It is also promoting the idea of really connecting inwardly to your origin. The place that is the source of creation from within. Each of us needs to accept our individuality no matter how strange it might appear to others. Our personal uniqueness is what leads us to find our special destiny and help find our place in the world. A big part of that journey requires us to find the right support groups that share our ideas and intentions. So with these two personal planets moving through Aquarius be sure to ask yourself the very important questions. How am I supported along my journey and how am I supporting others along theirs.
Saturn square Neptune
Another interesting alignment that is taking place is the crisis in consciousness square between Saturn (Sagittarius) and Neptune (Pisces). This is a fairly new vibrational pattern and really will begin to bring much needed healing after Saturn’s recent two year cycle through Scorpio. This will begin to feel like the nature of reality is dissolving and that there is a sense of openness and new direction but at the same time the very direction or route feels life it can only be understood and navigated intuitively. It does not quite have clarity but it can be sensed. This vibration can also cause feelings of being overwhelmed and also that time is slipping by. Go with the flow and be present in all moments. I promise, there is incredible insight waiting to be felt and integrated. As Above (Neptune) So Below (Saturn).
Full Moon Message
Nobody said the journey back home would be an easy one. The path of the awakened soul can be a daunting task at first. Moments of clarity followed by utter confusion and lack of personal direction. The journey of the soul as it returns back to its origins, back to the space that embraces it total unconditional love. The place that allows for the dissolving all definitions and offers love, compassion and acceptance so that we can live from a space of total acceptance and inner peace.
Much of our journey so far has been figuring out what our soul’s purpose is. As I mentioned above this next shift is the acceptance of being awake and what it means to walk the earth being the change.
The awakened soul has realized its higher dimensional consciousness and now it is time to start integrating that awareness and journey in grounded and practical ways in order for the change from within to be seen without. The moment were you embrace your individuality and uniqueness as your own. The personal judgments and persecutions and the harshness of the world has taught us to feel afraid and to close off. To not be open about our beliefs and ideas regarding the actual nature of our inner reality. This is a message of encouragement to not allow your own ideas to be shunted off as silly or to radical. The next step is learning to remain open to the world and to feel secure in those moments of vulnerability. The outdated structures of society perpetuated fear which has been internalized by many. Know that your voice needs to be heard and know that even when you share your truth and nobody seems to accept it that it is still something the world needs.
Be present and soft with others who are reacting from fear. Their own illusions of security will be threatened by anything that is new. This cycle is natural, nobody wants to feel insecure and open when we have been shown so much pain, rejection and sorrow in the world. Your role is to be an example, to encourage by being the change in the world, by living a life that is centered in the heart. Not to just be open with in a closed group where it is supported but to step out in the open where the real change and healing needs to happen.
The Capricorn and Cancer vibrations in the natural zodiac in its purest essence reflects nurture (Cancer) and protection (Capricorn). The role of the mother and father provide this role in our early human lives. They provide the platform safety and security, which once we get older and begin our own journey, become the picture to which we use to find it within ourselves. This is the journey of Cancer/Capricorn, to find that father / mother archetype in our lives. In the past our own authority and nurturing has been placed outside in the form of governments and priests and other external sources that offer guidance. Most of us, without even thinking about it seek guidance or direction from a source that essentially outside of ourselves. The ultimate truth is that the soul, your spirit comes fully equipped with all it needs to know about its journey on earth. Through being awake and aware to what you sense and intuitively feel at all times, becomes a navigation for being at the right place at the right time for the exact synchronicity to happen which brings the insight or awareness or answer you seek. So again the repeating theme for this full moon is to TRUST your intuition, to feel secure in knowing your place in your body and to even when the situation reflects the need to emotionally close off and protect, remind yourself of the heart centered compassion and understanding needed for these old barriers that keep us from seeing our true universal identity. Humanity all comes from the same source. Unity is the key.
The past 9 months have been intense. We have been soul-searching, letting go, healing, accepting, removing definitions and connecting to our soul´s purpose. This next shift is about HOW to put all of that into the world. How we are to integrate our new selves into this world that still may look more or less the same on the outside. The answer to this is to allow our inner self to step out of its protective shell. To stop hiding behind the safety of false truths whilst holding our true reality to ourselves and those we feel safe around. If we are to see the change in the world around us we must BE it. It is time to birth our new identity into the world!
Full Moon Mantra
I have searched within and found myself. I had to rummage through the layers of untruths to get to the core of my being. I have confronted the fear and pain that I carried within me. I now see the world with new eyes. I see the pain and fear around me and I wish to heal it… to change the world. I know that I have a special destiny to fulfill and I am ready!
I am ready to step out into the open… to step out of my shell… to be open and vulnerable in this harsh world. I do not need to hide anymore. I have nothing to fear. I am SAFE!
I am loved… I am love…
The zodiac does not enact life, it merely reflects it.
New Moon in Capricorn – The Soul’s Purpose
22 December 2014
As the sun leaves Sagittarius and enters Capricorn, a new evolutionary journey of our consciousness begins. Out of the mutable fiery, jovial energy that is Sagittarius we go, we once again return inward and into the depths of our soul’s inner reality. It is here where we are asked to slow down, take time and start to reflect again on the meaning behind the special purpose we feel awakened to.
Much of our cosmic journey so far has brought us great awareness towards wanting more fulfillment out of life. With both Jupiter in Leo and Uranus in Aries stimulating and activating these fiery creative aspects of ourselves it is most certainly something we cannot ignore. With the Sun and Moons movement into Capricorn where they join Venus and Mercury the seeds for this next evolutionary cycle are created. The stage is set for this month’s theme: Inner reflection and finding Soul purpose.
Happy Birthday Capricorn!
May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face.
Understanding the Capricorn Vibration
Introducing Capricorn! In relation to universal law, otherwise termed (natural law), Capricorn symbolizes the nature of structure within nature. Structure can also be seen as protection – the structure of a house symbolizes protection for its inhabitants; the skin on our body, the bark of the tree. In the human mind, it is the framework through which we construct, organize and engineer things. Its effect is evident in the way we build and define structures in any given society; the frameworks of countries, and their governmental and education structures.
Now, in order for these structures to function they contain rules, regulations and laws, which lead us to becoming conditioned to that framework. The Capricorn archetype correlates to our interaction with such roles of authority – society, parents, and the authority of ourselves, and how we respond or react to these external authorities. Capricorn also contains the function of reflection. Reflection is natural to consciousness and acts as an important vehicle to set in motion an awareness for change. This is experienced through hindsight. When we reflect back on the past, we become aware through hindsight of possible new directions, and ways in which we can move forward without feeling blocked by circumstance. Makes sense?
Our concept of time is inherent to this phenomena. The aging process becomes one of reflection. This is why as you age, you mature through wisdom gained. So Capricorn vibrates in our lives as the natural way in which we form structure, both of our own individual consciousness and through to the external world.
At this stage of our current evolution, with Pluto’s transit through Capricorn, it is a time of reflection and change. We are reflecting, through the maturity of wisdom gained, on how we have been conditioned, and rewiring our consciousness. This is leading to a change in direction. New structures are progressively replacing the old.
Planetary Alignments Reflecting Evolution
The 15th of December 2014 marked a big event for all of us. The most significant planetary alignment of this current time frame is the Pluto (Capricorn) square Uranus (Aries). This event has been deeply effecting and shaping the nature of our reality. An extensive aspect of our currently reality and the way we see the world now is due to this alignment. Now once again with the December 15th alignment, new awakenings in the form of emotional shocks, radical changes, and unexpected upheavals brought forth the essence of this alignment. To flush out old outdated thought forms, emotional wounds and any negative psychological conditioning.
The key is to find compassion, empathy and self-love. To accept the darkness in our journey as necessary in order to see the light. This alignment brought forward some interesting insights.
Along with the major event of the Pluto Uranus square, we have been experiencing the final stages of Saturn’s transit through Scorpio. In fact on the 23rd of December, Saturn will leave Scorpio and enter Sagittarius. A new shift in reality is on its way for us. A shift from the deep dark watery depths of Scorpio’s lair into a much brighter vibration. I think many of us will feel the effects as this shift takes place.
The last two years that Saturn (reality) has been in Scorpio will not be forgotten. The truth is out!
Saturn is still making a square to Jupiter (retrograde in Leo) and now beginning to form a square to Neptune (Pisces). What this suggests is the need to align one’s personal sovereignty (Saturn Scorpio) with personal dreams (Neptune in Pisces) that then ignites feelings for finding your special destiny (Jupiter Leo). This comes from a space of inner reflection to contemplation. We must connect to our inner being and bring out the source from within.
Venus (Value/Needs) in a new phase conjuction to Pluto (Capricorn) are squaring the nodal axis. This alignment has been, and will be effecting us deeply this past week. Creating a heaviness that will further support inner reflection, specifically regarding relationships to ourselves and others and what we value. On the deepest level we have now changed what we value entirely. If you notice this festive season, you might have chosen to not divulge much of your value into materialism. Having a completely new set of values.
A new direction is being paved for us all and these celestial events are reflecting to us the major changes. Many of the alignments at this point and until April 2015 will be reflecting massive changes, dissolving and mutating our reality and ourselves. This is next 4 month period will seem blurry and things could seem inconsistent. Just go with the flow and be flexible!
The New Moon’s Message
The natural cycle of Capricorn, as mentioned above, is about deep reflection. Again this is a cycle of withdrawing and exploring the inner emotional landscape. Pondering and reviewing which direction is the right one for you. What does the new you want? How would wish to shape your future? These are important questions that require your attention.
The natural vibration of Capricorn and its connection to Virgo, Taurus and Cancer reflects how we seek duty and responsibility in being of service to our home and community. In most tribes, and in matriarchal living, the natural laws of these symbols reflected our devotion to our society and community. You helped along with others achieving, stability and various functions that maintained how the structure of the community operated. This was the duty of the people and it now is becoming the duty of our new earth once again.
But this time around it’s on a global scale. We need to stand together in union with our fellow brothers and sisters that are all around the world. We need to dissolve our pre-existing definitions and ideals that perpetuate the illusions of separateness. The unity and heart of our earth community lies in linking your special purpose and destiny with that which helps build and strengthen our connection to our fellow earth citizens and to our homeland.
New Moon Mantra
I am allowing myself the time to reflect deeply on who I wish to be in the world, and what role I will play in the contribution to the building of our new reality. A reality where we are all connected… to each other as well as to nature. A reality where nobody is forgotten or left behind.
I will be the change I wish to see in the world. I will not look to others to do this… I will be that change myself and inspire others to do the same. I have come into this world with a special destiny to fulfill , as has every living organism in and of this universe. I will embrace that special destiny by connecting to my heart. I will act from that place of LOVE in every moment. I will shine my beautiful light on the world. For I am the light. I AM.
I am the change!
Full Moon in Gemini – Earth’s New Language
6 December 2014
The time has come around again where we find ourselves experiencing the essence of the full Moon’s vibrational pattern, and once again there is an incredible amount of vibrational shifting going on for us.
There are many layers to this Full Moon, starting with the sixth of seven Uranus-square-Pluto aspects. This is a huge deal. We have Jupiter turning retrograde on the 8th of December, Pluto is squaring the nodal axis, Saturn is in its final days in Scorpio as it begins to make its way into Sagittarius, and last but not least Mars moves into Aquarius.
I really wanted to give you a picture of what is taking place for us at the moment, and what these aspects reflect to us. There is big change happening internally for us, which is preparing us for the next series of vibrational shifts and awakenings which, in my personal view, will manifest throughout the first half of the new year.
The Full Moon’s theme reflects three important aspects of our current reality. The first is the up and coming retrograde cycle of Jupiter.
Since July this year, Jupiter has been filling our hearts (Leo) with insight and aspiration. We have been connecting to and feeling our new sense special destiny and direction is on the horizon. It feels like it’s just around the corner and we cannot wait to start this new adventure. When Jupiter goes retrograde on the 8th of December, we will begin to review this feeling of special purpose and destiny. The vibration will take on the yin aspect of consciousness, so it’s about reflecting and looking back and re-discovering the ideas we have been formulating since July.
This process will continue for us until the 8th of April 2015. What is fascinating about April 8th time frame is that we will be having multiple fire-trine formations at that time; this is when it all comes together. Things will be seriously heating up folks! You might even start to feel the inward exploration of those dreams and what you will need to further explore in order to start making this new direction work. As I mentioned before, we are in a process of stabilising and building solid foundations. So take the time to nurture your new direction and manifest it into reality. Be compassionate and patient with yourself and others. We are one.
Pluto-in-Capricorn Square Uranus-in-Aries
The next planarity alignment I want to bring to your awareness is the sixth (and second-last) Pluto-in-Capricorn square Uranus-in-Aries alignment. Very briefly, this alignment is reflecting to us why the world is shifting in the way is. Uranus moved into Aries in 2012 which brought many of us major life altering changes. Many of you had your first awakening experiences then too. As Uranus started moving through Aries it started forming a “crisis in action” square to Pluto. What this meant for us was the beginning of the shattering and breaking down (Uranus) of our perception of reality (Pluto in Capricorn). These two power houses have been having a very long and deep conversation, much of which has been about, “this needs to change”, “this outdated thinking”, “this system does not work” and so on.
On a personal level, we have been experiencing our own awakenings and personal upheavals. Just think back to last December (2013) when Uranus and Pluto made their fourth alignment. How much has changed within you in the past year? How much has changed around you?
So here we are at the sixth alignment and I am pleased to say that this one will bring more awakening and liberation. The veils will continue to be removed, and the truth come out. I see it as the butterfly beginning to emerge out of the cocoon. Mars has now moved into the constellation Aquarius and will be moving through there for about a month or so. He will be triggering off the Uranus and Pluto square.
The fact that he is in Aquarius reflects the theme of total liberation from the past. The synchronicity of Mars in Aquarius and Uranus (Aquarius) in Aries (Mars) says it all. The outdated time is now becoming really apparent, on a much deeper level. Accept the powerful insights you receive during this time. Whenever Uranus is involved we can expect to have an acceleration of how we experience time and reality, as new dimensions of reality to emerge.
The last thing that I wanted to share here is that the Pluto/Uranus square effects of change happen very slowly. They are outer planets in our solar system and move very slowly through their orbit – and through the constellations. So in effect these changes have been slow but very loud. I like to see it like the drummer in a band. Our conscious focus may be on the lead singer, but we are moved by the beat of the drum.
The Vibration of the Personal Planets
The last and final vibrational alignment I would like to draw your attention to is the placement of the personal planets. Mars as I mentioned has moved into Aquarius. The Sun, Venus and Mercury moving along in Sagittarius. These planets are making some serious noise.
The first thing to note is the Sun and Mercury in Sagittarius are squaring Chiron in Pisces. They have for the last week been forming stressful aspects to Neptune as well. This is also significant because the planet affecting the Full Moon in Gemini is Mercury (the mind). The effect and message being revealed is how divided we have been in the past and the need to re balance or come into re alignment with the truth that is reflected in nature. The idea of inclusion sharing and giving. Also the awareness of seeing ourselves as a unified organism of this planet, living in symbiosis with all other aspects of nature. Another significance to add to this is that the placement of the South node of Uranus is at 14 degrees Sagittarius. Here is a little piece of what this symbolises…
The South Node of Uranus reflects the time in the past where we lived in alignment with Mother Nature and her natural law (Sagittarius). We understood her natural cycles and we understood our place in the eco system. The trauma and fracturing through our man made beliefs and definitionshave caused us to live out of alignment with this. This, by the way, is also a natural cycle for us; a cycle of darkness. We are just now re-entering a new phase of re-alignment. This is a gradual process.
So, the main theme of this Full Moon is that we are looking at our reality and world and seeing how definitions have caused us to be separated (Uranus) from one another. Our cultures are divided and we are subjected to borders that alienate each other from seeing the essence of what we really are.
Gemini makes a natural realignment aspect to Capricorn in the zodiac. The relationship Gemini (words) has to Capricorn (definitions) is what limits us in our ability to experience the true essence of something. In fact you can see this for yourself. Compare two languages. A book is still a book, even when you describe it using different languages.
When we define ourselves, we limit the truth of what we are. And again this is why we are needing to dissolve the essence of our illusions of separateness – the false definitions that limit our collective and individual potential.
Our skin has a direct correlation to the sign Capricorn because again, it reflects definition. So we have to free ourselves from our outdated definitions, ones that are trapped in outdated thought forms and ideas. They are holding us back.
Pluto at the moment will also be making an inconjunct (re-alignment) aspect to the Full Moon. So the message is CLEAR! Liberation (Aquarius) from the outdated thoughts (Gemini) and definitions (Capricorn) comes through dissolving the illusionary (Pisces) barriers that have kept us from experiencing our true potential.
Full Moon Message
Diversity, individuality and oneness are key to bringing us back into re-alignment with each other. It is vital that in the quest for a new paradigm we learn to embrace each other with open arms.
So many times and especially during this the Sun’s movement through Sagittarius, we are reminded of the disconnection we have from nature. We find ourselves not understanding individuality. We forget that we don’t know the totality of the truth, we only truly know our own perspective of it. The essence of Sagittarius is understanding that the paths we walk on earth are linked with discovering our truth and sharing it with the world; that then allows others to expand on their awareness of reality. Sharing, not suppressing, our combined truths allow for us to expand the spectrum of light that then aids our collective awareness (Pisces) and understanding. These symbols are really being highlighted at this stage.
Our consciousness is connected to the universe and the universe is connected to us. We are reflecting back to ourselves the way back home. The call to find acceptance and harmony amongst us is of the utmost importance. We know if we want to see change happen in the world we have to change from within. The light for our humanity is not one in which we solely focus on the new year ahead but the changes we can make that echo into eternity. That is the true essence of our journey. We unite together by seeing ourselves as a part of a greater whole and embrace our diversity as a reflection of our own unique roles within the whole. We are each a unique expression of consciousness itself.
The moment for change is here. The essence of our new direction is awaiting us. The final hurdle is upon us. It is the highest and most challenging but we are ready to make that jump. The veils of deception are wearing very thin. The lies that have kept us asleep are coming out in the open. We are increasingly awake to what changes we need to manifest, and this is the time to do it — to unite and stand together as one without prejudice, to share our truths in good faith, and build a world of unprecedented union and unity.
Our experiences affect us in very personal ways, and each of us has a personal truth that is no more true than the other. We help each other create a better reality by speaking and listening from the heart. Love is the new language — the all-encompassing binding force that means nobody gets left behind!
Full Moon Mantra
I free myself from the words that define me. I am not my past, my experiences or my thoughts. I will not be defined by my name, my shell, my nationality or my gender. I will not define myself or others. We are all in this together. We are the experience of consciousness itself. We are aspects of the one Source… the totality… reflected through our diversity.
I am love. I am fluid and ever-changing. I am becoming.
We are the Change.
New Moon in Sagittarius – Our New Horizons
22 November 2014
Whoo! We survived! What an incredible month we just had with the sun’s movement through intense and confrontational Scorpio. It has been an amazing journey that has readied us for the next step in our cosmic evolution. The cosmos gave us a nice boost of inspiration with the recent alignment of 11:11. This month’s cycle is now all about expanding our philosophy and aligning to our personal truth. So during this month we will be experiencing some incredible healing and finding deep spiritual connection.
Happy Birthday Sagittarius!
May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face.
A quick review of the last month cycle…
I would like to quickly review the last month’s events for us, as I feel that the Scorpio month was very important. We really were pulled down into the depths of our psychology and asked to survey what lurks beneath the exterior of everyday living awareness. What surfaced for us were deep unconscious psychological patterns and fixations that reflected personal limitations. A part of this was also reflecting deep wounding from patriarchal conditioning. For much of the Sun’s transit in Scorpio we were exploring these distortions and healing the wounds. A strong theme that was linked with this cycle was us becoming more aligned with our most intimate desires, and understanding the motivations and intentions behind what is driving us forward along this new earth timeline.
In essence this cycle left us wanting to find our place in the world and figure out what we desire to do with this new found sovereignty. So with that being said… What does this next step in our evolution hold for us?
The Sagittarius Vibration
Within our consciousness, Sagittarius reflects to us how we connect to our deep intuitive knowing. In human form we define this as our personal truth. As humans our connection to Mother Earth/nature is hard-wired, and Sagittarius also reflects to us our relationship with natural law. Natural law is simply defined as the rights and values that are inherent to human nature, or universally cognizable by human reason. For example, our inherent right to freedom is a natural law, whereas laws regulating industry are not.
On a personal level, as mentioned above, Sagittarius will reflect how we personally see and experience the spectrum of creation; the personal perspective we use and share when interacting with the world. Our spiritual selves use the Sagittarius vibration to explore and expand what we know as our lives on this Earth timeline. It is what we define as our journey, our personal story. The totality of all of those experiences becomes how we personally interpret creation.
Sagittarius (personal truth) through its polarity Gemini (language) reflect how we communicate our personal truth and intuitive knowing to others. This is why whenever mainstream science tries to debunk astrology, you can always find humour in knowing that the very communication (Gemini) of that personal truth (Sagittarius) reflects its very validity as a mirror to our inner drives. Astrology reflects to us who we are and is one tool amongst many that help us interpret deep truths that guide each of us in finding our way back home.
Finally Sagittarius will correlate to the right brain function. The creative aspect of our minds and our intuition.
Important planetary alignments to note…
How has time felt for you recently? Is it speeding up? Are days just disappearing?
Mars has been moving along through the constellation Capricorn for just under a month now. He has been really inducing a state of inner reflection for us and also amplifying the Saturn in Scorpio story which by the way is now starting to culminate. (To learn more, please see the article New Moon in Scorpio – the Resurrection of Desire.) Mars also moved across Pluto and created for us the feeling of new evolutionary path. (Please read the article Full Moon in Taurus – 11:11 – The Return from Darkness to Light for a deeper perspective.) He has now been making aspects to Uranus in Aries and to Jupiter in Leo.
Now in the context of our cosmic journey I see this as a feeling of deep restriction. This in fact is really helping us even if it might be causing frustration or a feeling of being stuck in airport terminal waiting for a connecting flight. What I see with this configuration is our need to be mindful that quality comes with maturation. And that this energy is really holding us in check as we continue exploring other aspects of ourselves. It is like learning to ride a bike for the first time – we use training wheels so that we can adjust to the new experience, helping us to stay balanced while we figure it all out!
It also reflects an energetic build up within us. This, I also believe, is the reason for the perception of time speeding up. Capricorn correlates to experience of time/space and Uranus will reflect the experience of acceleration. But the deepest layer that exists for us here is the opportunity to fine-tune and connect to our inner self – the space that exists in us that reflects the source of who we are. Our inner truth. Our most natural and balanced way of being. Our timeless essence.
Moving along with this planetary configuration is the aspects the Sun, Moon and Venus are making to Neptune and Chiron in Pisces. This in my view is an incredibly powerful alignment. On the 16th of November, Neptune changed direction and started moving in direct motion again. Connect back to that space in time and see if you can remember having a moment of “aah”… a moment that wasn’t just incredibly deep but which also brought an immense amount of clarity for you. This New Moon in Sagittarius now challenges you to start exploring that new sense of spiritual clarity in your life.
The connection between Sagittarius and Pisces in the zodiac reflects the natural process of connecting one’s personal truth (Sagittarius) to the totality of the whole truth (Pisces). Pisces reflects the one, the source the totality. In combination with Sagittarius, it reflects your connection to your intuition.
A really deep and sensitive subject that we are all faced with at the moment is the message symbolised by Chiron in Pisces placement. Chiron will be also turning direct on the 23rd of November, a day after the New Moon, and for humanity, this is reflecting the process of healing a deep internal collective wound – one that has been chosen by humanity to experience.
Humanity’s collective spirituality has been inhibited by man-made religious institutions for at least the last 2,000 years, and one of the deepest distortions in the teachings of these patriarchal religions has been the notion that spirit and flesh are separate. This perception of separation feeds a deep unconscious rejection of our spiritual nature, and by extension, feeds the misconception that the “unseen” is separate of our more obvious physical “reality”, and therefore somehow not a valid part of the human experience. This false perception of separation between our physical and spiritual realities tells us that, as mere “physical beings”, we are also separate from god/love/source itself.
But the distortion goes deeper than that. Institutional religions also perpetrate the myth of hierarchy within that separation; that god is not only separate to us, but superior to us, and that we therefore need to suffer in order to experience love (god) and atone for our sins in order experience heaven.
A powerful question to ask yourself… Why are humans the only living beings on Earth that have to pay to live? Nothing in nature pays rent and bills, or has property rights, or works for the privilege of buying the Earth’s abundant resources from others. This truth of this is a deep reflection of the disconnected place humanity finds itself at this point in time. From a dark, unnatural past, we are returning to the light. We are returning back home to our natural states and finding deep truths — that love really is the ultimate vibration, and that we deserve it as it is our natural sovereign birth right. Self-acceptance and self-love and, through that, the extension of love to one another is key.
New Moon in Sagittarius
As the conjunction of the Sun and Moon bring us into lessons that will be reflected in this Sagittarius cycle, we will be invited to work on many layers of ourselves. On the deepest layer, we will explore our real and critical alignment with nature, and from that perspective we will understand how to build our new home on this planet.
Our challenge? We have a duty as a global community to protect and nurture the essence of life – that which we truly are. It is time to speak your truth, to dance to your tune, and to be as colourful and vibrant as you can possibly be. Honor the inner god/dess and allow the love to flow.
Collectively we are embracing this process. We are working to bring ourselves into balance with the true nature of our being, and creating a better future for the generations to come. And through that process. we are aligning to our own personal journey. What a great time to be alive! This cycle will bring with it joy and excitement. It will also light up the way for when Saturn moves into Sagittarius in December 2014. It will reveal to us the start a new evolutionary chapter for humanity. One in which I personally see is filled with hopeful potential!
New Moon Mantra
I am connected to the essence of my soul and know that I am what I have been searching for. I am rising back to the surface of reality and see the world with new eyes. It is now time to ponder the endless possibilities of this world… what to experience… how to live… and why. It is time to start manifesting my new commitment to myself and the world, to bring my truth into reality – to experience it first hand. I have been to the darkness and confronted my fears. I now know what it is to be a sovereign being on this earth. I am ready to explore what I came here for and why. I am ready to live. I am stepping into the light. I am the light. I am the change.
I am the change,
Full Moon in Taurus – 11:11 – The Return from Darkness to Light
6 November 2014
While everything seems very silent on the surface, the degree of inner transformation is intense. The Scorpio vibration has pulled us down into the deep dark depths of our souls, like a submarine surveying the sub terrain of the ocean floor. The vibration is bringing up all of our fears, insecurities and wounds but also giving us the chance to completely examine our motivations and intentions. The search for our desires continues.
So what does this Full moon in Taurus hold for us?
Needs and Values
Since the New Moon in Scorpio, this month’s main focus has been on the resurrection of our deepest desire. Now as we approach the full moon we examine and learn what we “need” in order to actualise these desires, and bring them into the light.
When we see the vibration of Taurus we look at the nature of survival. Our needs are based on what we think we require to survive. At some point we then link a value system to these needs, and then, for every new direction we choose, we must have a grasp on what resources are available in order to for the idea to survive.
So what we are being asked to look at here is: What do I “need” and “value” in order for my new direction in life to thrive? Beside the resources needed to actualise our desires, this will also include the types of relationships we have with other people. We will be focusing on how others’ values contrast against our own. This process is important as it reflects to us more of what we need vs. what we don’t need in our lives
Sun, Venus and Saturn in Scorpio align Jupiter (Leo) and Uranus (Aries)
The Strong Foundation.
The Sun, Venus and Saturn are all traveling together in Scorpio and all making very important alignments with Jupiter in Leo and Uranus in Aries. Herein lies an important message…
As I discussed in my last article, we have become liberated from pre-existing definitions and conditioning (Uranus in Aries) and there is currently a deep feeling of special destiny and purpose (Jupiter in Leo) awaiting us, and which we are excited to actualise — myself included. However I feel that the full moon is truly asking that we first become stable and grounded in our approach (Taurus), and add this element of consciousness into how we go about building the new.
On a much deeper level, it reflects the need to remain in the physical. It is very easy to be caught up in the ideal way of seeing our future. But remember; when we look at building a house the foundation is always an important priority; it creates security and stability. So while ideals are important in this process of examination and deconstruction, our current reality is the framework from which we must build.
In this time, finding security within yourself is the key. A sense of inner security creates the perfect breeding ground for manifesting your desires and taking charge of your life. As this cycle illuminates our desire and direction for our forward journey, we may have to take a leap of faith and trust — and know that whatever the direction you are being pulled into will bring the necessary changes in your life to bring your vision/truth into total alignment with your reality.
11:11:11 Pluto Conjunct Mars/Grand Trine/Cardinal Square
The alignment of our Origins.
Just when the darkness starts to overwhelm us, we get a message showing us that the journey we are on is not unguided; that we are not alone and that there is perfect synchronicity in creation.
I would like to draw your attention to an incredible alignment that simply cannot be made up. On the 11th of November, or the 11th of the 11th, the planet Mars will line up with Pluto at 11 degrees in the sign of Capricorn. Talk about synchronicity! But wait… On that same day a complete Grand Water Trine will also light up the heavens, and just when I thought that this was too amazing to be true, a Grand Cardinal Cross joins in to add yet another powerful alignment event to this synchronistic day. This is incredible!
So what does it all actually mean?
Pluto Mars 11:11:11 Alignment
Aligning your inner and outer vibration.
This alignment of Mars with Pluto signifies an incredibly positive turn for us on Earth. These two symbols reflect to us how we go about acting out our evolution on Earth. Pluto reflects to us deep unconscious desires and how they propel the direction of our lives on Earth. Because of the nature of Pluto being so unconscious, Mars plays out the role of how we go about actualising these unconscious desires in a conscious way – like the gasoline for our desires.
So this alignment means that we are ready to take the plunge. On a collective level we are beginning to build the new world by the initiation of each individual’s soul desires being manifested into the world. On this day, our ego (Mars) will come into total alignment with divine will (Pluto). A choice or new direction will present itself during this month, and we all have to take that leap of faith and lunge into this new uncharted direction with total innocence. This is the moment to value your sovereignty. We cannot change the world while holding on to the false securities of the past.
Align your inner and outer vibration. Be the change!
Cardinal Cross Alignment
Instinct, change and alignment.
The 4 Cardinal signs reflect the 4 elements: Air, Fire, Water and Earth. Together, the Cardinal energy reflects instinctual change. It beautifully signifies what we need to do as we look to integrate the new self, changing and moving in new directions.
New directions bring uncertainly because they have not yet been explored. This uncertainty makes us take a step backward to our known security. We soon realise that this security is of the past and so therefore we move again into the new direction. This dance back and forth continues until a commitment takes place.
So what we are looking at here with this alignment is the need to embrace change and to allow for change, and to go with the flow, without the security of past constructs and beliefs. The Cardinal Grand Cross is highlighting to us the need to bring the body (Earth), mind (Air), spirit (Fire) and emotions (Water) into total alignment. And by doing this, it brings you and your direction into total alignment with the universe.
Water Trinity Alignment
The Ego (Cancer), Source (Pisces) and Desire (Scorpio).
Each of us on earth are aligned with 3 main points that drive our human evolution. We all originate from the source of all things (Pisces) where we are all unified. Our ego (Cancer) really acts like a vehicle which we use to actualise our desires (Scorpio).
A trine is a harmonious connection between planets. In the case of the Water Trinity, we have the harmonious connection between the source, the soul and the ego. This reflects to us the opportunity to align our ego with our desires which emanate from the source.
Full Moon Message
The return to the light from the darkness.
The full moon in Taurus is asking us to reflect on our values and needs. It is also reminding us of the value of having a strong foundation which gives us the security to manifest our new desires. The north node in Libra is adding to this dynamic and highlighting the need to value balance, equality and to explore the needs and wants of others relative to our ourselves. The phase of Mars to Pluto is still culminating. We are closing an entire chapter of our lives here. We are letting go of what we no longer need so that we have space for ‘the new’ in our lives.
On the 11th of November, the final surrender will take place and we will be ready to embark on the next chapter of this epic saga.
11:11 represents the unity of all things; that we are all of the same vibration even though we appear to be separate in the physical. It also symbolizes the number 4; the four elements which combined create the one; the totality of everything. When we see these numbers we are being asked to pay attention to this connection. So, as Mars and Pluto connect at 11 degrees on 11/11 we will be experiencing incredibly synchronistic alignments that will illuminate this connection to us. The message here is to integrate the four: body, spirit, emotion and mind (Cardinal Grand Cross) and then to completely embody them through the flesh and spirit as one — the alignment of ego, source and desire (Water Trinity).
The journey becomes even clearer on the 16th of November when Neptune (Pisces) turns direct and Venus moves into Sagittarius. The synchronicity here is the connection that Pisces has to Sagittarius – the connection of one’s inner truth (Sagittarius) to source (Pisces). Once again, the zodiac reflects to us how beautifully connected we truly are. The light will begin to emerge once again. Humanity’s journey back to its origin is well under way.
What a time to be alive!
Believe in yourself and know that during this time you are protected by love and truth. This full moon will illuminate any remnants of your old ego structure for you to let go of. Any wounds that you can leave behind. Anything hindering your relationship to yourself to be one of total acceptance and love. Surrender to the process! Allow it to flush through you! Let go! Clear out and cleans! There may be moments when you feel that you are losing yourself but know that you are actually finding yourself. By clearing out the old you are making room for the new. The true. The undistorted.
We are preparing for the alignment of 11:11 – for the direct experience of the ONE. It will not be loud. It will be nothing and everything, experienced in the moment. Listen! Feel! Know!
Be the change!
New Moon in Scorpio – Resurrection of Desire
23 October 2014
After conquering the wasted lands, the quest of the warrior again commands that we march into a world unknown, the wilderness we call our home.
We are entering Hades lair. Don’t be afraid! The new lunar cycle in Scorpio brings with it a powerful cosmic flush in which the process of total inner transmutation is available for us. In order for us to do so we will need to confront the inner core vibration of who we are. We have to dig deep, to the soul level.
Welcome to dark inner landscape of your own soul.
Happy birthday Scorpio!
Understanding the Vibration of Scorpio & Pluto.
When we reach the vibration of Scorpio, we begin to recognize that there is more to the reality than what appears on the surface. The vibration of Scorpio is linked with evolution. In nature we observe it as the caterpillar’s metamorphosis into a butterfly. The original form transmuting into a totally different form. This is why Scorpio energy has been labeled as rebirth energy. Through the human condition the vibration of Scorpio plays out the role of the deepest psychology of our consciousness. Through intense inquiry into what lies beneath the surface Scorpio wants to know the bottom line.
As we begin delving deeper into the nature of our psyche we become aware of our motivations, intentions obsessions and compulsions. You see, this is actually where our deepest unconscious securities lie. Our fixations and attachments to things in our lives, even to life itself. Scorpio has a dualistic desire nature to it. On the one hand, through Scorpio we have the desire to evolve and change and on the other hand we have the desire to feel empowered, which comes through experience and knowing, from past experience. However the very thing that empowers us will eventually cause limitations, which in itself is disempowering. This is where the desire to change is born – to evolve past limitations. Old and outdated patterns of behavior cause limitations. These limitations then come up for renewal. An action of involution takes place; letting go as it were. This allows space to be created and for new psychological patterns to be born.
So let´s take a look at the cosmos…
Saturn in Scorpio
The Shadow self
This will be the last time that the sun will travel through the constellation Scorpio while Saturn is in Scorpio for at least another 29 years. This is a very special cycle in terms of our evolution because an entire chapter is coming to a close. With this comes the final awareness of the lessons that are related to the Saturn in Scorpio transit. For much of the last two years we have been dealing with intense dark truths about the nature of humanity. We have become completely aware of the nonsense that authority’s project into our perception about what is real and what is not. Even to the point now where we look at the recent Ebola outbreak as a hoax. Saturn in Scorpio has been showing us exactly what is happening in the transit of Pluto through Capricorn. It has been giving us a preview. With this mutual reception we have been greatly aided in ripping down all the outdated definitions and cleaning our perception of our outer world. Along with this came the undoing of the authoritative power we give to the hierarchic structures. Essentially the veil of illusion that governments, institutions, corporations and corporate media has hidden behind has now been removed and the truth is in plain sight, allowing us to flush out these deep dark distortions that existed within us. We certainly became aware of our own individual and collective karma. We were also, during this time, becoming aware of our external security patterns and how we placed them in the hands of these authorities. We learnt the biggest spiritual lesson during this transit; Total security can only be found from within. What has emerged during this time for humanity is that the year of 2014 has been one in which we have become awake to our own freedom. Our spiritual freedom. We have been learning that we are sovereign spiritual beings of this earth. We have been recognizing our own authority. It is time now to establish that personal, inner authority in the world. This is the key to actualizing our desires and becoming awake to them. With this knowledge we are able to make choices to move away from, and stop supporting, the outdated structures one step at a time. This will inevitably lead to their fall.
Now as the Sun, Moon and Venus enter Scorpio and also form a partial solar eclipse, we will become aware of the inner work that we have done. We will be putting the pieces of the puzzle together. This is not likely to be friendly and we can expect to be tested. But soon we will be aligning ourselves with new truths and beginning the next part of this epic journey, fresh and ready.
Neptune trine Venus Moon and Sun
This planetary alignment reflects to us an important aspect that needs to be included when understanding this month’s theme. Love is the binding force in the universe. It is the source of all things. It creates unity and as a result the very vibration that is holding us together during this time of inner spiritual transmutation. With Venus, the Sun and the Moon all in harmonic contact with Neptune we see that this new moon in Scorpio is saying; Hey! We need to commit (Scorpio) to valuing (Venus) LOVE (Neptune). We need to merge with and deepen our relationship to love. Allowing this vibration of love to be the new guiding force in the new paradigm. If we are to begin rebuilding the new way of being on earth, we will all need to trust our own inner authority. Once we have that as our base note, we radiate love. The idea of love in this context is understanding our connection to our inner nature. Understanding that we ultimately are not separate from source. We are one. Unity consciousness.
As I wrote in the full Moon in Pisces article in September “We have lost our connection to god which means we have lost our connection to ourselves. This runs so deep within our consciousness that this is the very reason we look outside ourselves for answers, to authorities who claim to have the expertise that you yourself are lacking for your existence here on earth. This is why we override our instincts with logical ideas that we have been conditioned to believe. This is why we have allowed the people in power to make decisions for us. This is why we have allowed our earth to be polluted, our food to be poisoned, our land and natural resources to be claimed. This is all because of the illusion of separateness – the distortion that tells us humans are separate from nature, that Spirt and flesh are not connected. That we are not connected. Race separation, gender assignment, economic status etc. This sense of separateness keeps us from the love that we are all so desperately seeking.”
This very abandonment of our true connection to spirit is what is being healed. We are now digging to the depths of our souls and clearing the things blocking us from our true connection to God/source/love. We will be facing our souls and trough that becoming aligned with our true soul purpose. We will be feeling the burning desire to link our sense of purpose or destiny into our lives. Yet at the same time we will be feeling unsure about what that desire actually is. We can sense it, but not know it. That is okay, in fact it is completely natural to feel this way. The zodiac has not actually reached the point yet in which that impulse is ready. There are some steps we need to take in order for that to happen.
Mercury retrograde square Pluto and in opposition to Uranus in Aries.
Alignment of inner truth
With mercury retrograde being in Libra our ability to take in information from others is restricted. It creates a sense of not really understanding what people are trying to say from their perspective. The information becomes blurry as the linear logical mind is offline. This is important as the idea behind the alignment is to force total inner awareness and to search for information inwardly, from our intuition in a way that makes sense personally to ourselves. It may be easy to connect to this inner knowing, yet impossible to convey it to another. Mercury R is making a last quarter phase (276 degree) square to Pluto creating a crisis in consciousness where old ways of thinking and understanding aspects of reality have become outdated so we are needing to create new ways of seeing things. This is a mind opening experience, helping us to explore fresh new territory. Again this is all happening within us as mercury is retrograde. Uranus in Aries square Pluto and opposing Mercury R is, in short, reflecting our total liberation from preexisting definitions and conditioning.
Now, all of this is actually pointing to the Mars in Sagittarius transit. Mars is currently culminating its transit through Sagittarius and also forming a balsamic (culminating) aspect to Pluto. This combination will give us the feeling of both being pulled towards the next steps in our evolution, the new and at the same time we are being pulled back into ourselves, into the abyss. To return to source and surrender our ego will to the higher will. Remembering that the bottom line of this whole awakening is the awareness that we are experiencing our inward journey back home. Becoming aware of our spiritual nature. For each and every one of us, this journey is an inward one. Again, this is the reason we will feel a disconnection from others that have not yet awoken. They are defining their truths based on other people’s truths. So this alignment reflects that we are learning to connect with our own personal and individual truths. Ones that fit our own spiritual journey. What resonates and feels right for you? As you focus on this, you will become more aligned with your own personal vibration; your higher self. This is why it is important to look within.
New Moon, solar eclipse in Scorpio.
Resurrection of desire
So as we begin this new moon cycle we are filled with intense anticipation that something new is on the horizon and yet we cannot quite put our finger on it. We feel we are all ready to go, but there is something missing. The New Moon in Scorpio will be highlighting to us where we are not being true to ourselves. At the very core of our being is our connection to nature. Any fears or distortions within us that are severing this connection will need to be confronted. With this energetic connection in Scorpio we will be acutely sensitive to any vibration that is not in alignment with our true nature. Both in ourselves and others. We will also feel urged to confront these aspects head-on. We are needing to understand our motives and explore our desires. We need to question our actions, desires and intentions to get to the bottom line. As we clear out the distortions the picture will become clearer. Our true desires and soul purpose will be sensed on a very deep level. You then start linking these intentions and desires (New moon in Scorpio) to that feeling and sense of special destiny (Jupiter in Leo), you add the vibration of love (Neptune trine Venus) and finally then aligning it with your personal higher will (Mars in Sagittarius) you come to a space with yourself in which the whole dimension of your body mind and soul are aligned. How beautiful is that!?
New Moon Mantra.
As we begin to explore our own darkness and confront our shadow know that beyond that darkness is nothing but light. Just as the phoenix must be reduced to ashes, from which it is reborn, so too must we remove all of the outdated aspects of ourselves for the new vibrant life-force to emerge. We are understanding that we are the source code of creation.We are healing our severed connection to source and resurrecting our personal desire. Desires that will serve to build our new world. We are recognizing that we are powerful beyond measure. That we have the power to be our own authority. That we have the courage to choose love. That love will light our way. It is our guiding force. It is the very core of our being. It is what we are made of. It is the highest, brightest vibration within creation. So dig deep into your souls and clear the way for the true power of creation to emerge within you! Confront all that gets in your way! Confront it with love and it will dissolve. Keep searching, keep clearing and confronting until you are nothing but love and light.
For you are not small! You are the universe being expressed in human form!
Be the Change!
The Full Moon in Aries – The Cosmic Gateway
8 October 2014
Just when you thought the frequencies could not be more intense, we come across an energy pattern like this. It all comes down to this moment in which the reflections of the past and visions of the future are twined together in perfect synchronicity. We stand at an evolutionary gateway, overwhelmed with excitement yet anxious as the unknown approaches us. Will you trust the universe and fall into the abyss? Will you follow your instincts and remember your connection to your inner vibration? It is time to make a shift! It is time, once again, to raise the frequency of our consciousness. It is time to step boldly into the new without holding onto the past. Transformation, Transcendence and Transmutation are available to us right now. How Exciting!
Planetary alignments helping us along the way…
Time for reflection
Helping us along the way is Mercury in retrograde motion. The cycle of mercury retrograde happens four times every year. The spiritual intuitive function for the mercurial cycles are of taking a time out from the busyness of the outside world and retreating inwardly and reflecting. With reflection comes hindsight and with that comes a sense of moving into a new direction. Mercury has been in Scorpio since the 27th of September. It began its retrograde motion on the 4th of October and will continue to move back into Libra. So what is happening here? There will be very clear messages (mercury) which will be linked with the past, and will reflect aspects of ourselves which we need to confront and then let go of. I am not going to lie, this can bring loss. Scorpio is the state of conscious that reflects the act of letting go. With Scorpio we learn the lesson of life and how painful it can be. We can also be met with feelings of abandonment and betrayal. This vibration that Scorpio is bringing up will be heavy and can feel overbearing at times. However we all have the choice to be open and practice being heart centered during this time. When mercury moves into Libra, we will get the opportunity to practice listening and being there for one another. Opening up our hearts and feeling the connection of love between us. Offering peace and harmony and allowing the feeling of acceptance to be felt.

Our journey back home. To the source of all things.
On the 29th of September Venus moved into Libra and will make a close aspect to the sun during this full moon total eclipse. The beauty in the alignment of Venus moving close to the sun will be that it will contain the total vibration of its recent connection with Neptune (love). So this eclipse holds the vibration of love, acceptance, being heart centered and also of being open to receiving it. This is an exceptionally powerful and healing full moon. Because the north node of the moon falls in conjunction with the Sun and Venus it just adds extra emphasis to that fact that, acceptance, fairness and equality create balance during this highly charged energy shift. You will see the extremes in the world and most likely in your own life. Again, the purpose here is to create space for inner alignment. Alignment within yourself. The journey back home
Pluto square the Sun, Venus, full moon and Uranus.
Keeping the boat balanced during the stormy ride.
An intense time indeed, with these planets all in connection to Pluto, there is bound to be huge transmutation. There is a duality to how this planetary alignment will be effecting us. On one hand we have the desire to feel secure and safe in something of the past and the known and at the same moment we have a desire and pull towards moving forward into the unknown. If we are to step forward and break free from the old conditioning and face the new direction in our lives we can find ourselves becoming more aligned with our own destiny. The past will give the impression of safety but will be filled at the same time with a sense of lack. A feeling of being incomplete. The nodes of the moon which are in Libra and Aries will continue to ask for this progressive integration of love into all moments. We have a fresh new road ahead of us. Let’s pave it with love, acceptance, harmony and peace.
The fire trine. Mars/Jupiter/Uranus
Our burning desires.
Our burning desires are bubbling beneath the surface. The natural law of the fire trine in the zodiac reflects to us the feeling of spirt within us. That divine spark that drives our desires and that helps us actualize ourselves. This powerful planetary alignment is making us aware of our burning desires. It will not be hushed! So start making choices now to bring you closer to your dream! Align your mind and body with your soul!
Full Moon in Aries
Letting go and stepping into the unknown.
The synchronicities in this planarity full moon alignment are crystal clear. This full moon is packed with so much energy. It certainly will be felt with the activation of the Grand fire trine and the squares to Pluto set in perfect alignment with the full moon. Leading up to this alignment was the last lunar cycle in Virgo/Pisces. It really helped us rinse out and clean our vibrations so that we have the space available for change in our lives. We have cleared and purified ourselves to make room for love; the highest vibration there is! Love is the frequency of pure source energy being expressed in human form. Along with this full moon comes massive potential for change. As I mentioned before, the moon will be nesting beautifully between Uranus and the South Node. This placement reflects the point where the change all needs to happen for us.
Let me explain..
All three of the symbols involved here fall in the sign Aries. Uranus, Moon and the South Node.
The zodiac sign Aries reflects to us new beginnings. A new direction. With these new beginnings comes the feeling of uncertainty and anxiety. These feelings are directly connected to the Aries sign. A new direction symbolizes something that is unknown. The anxiety stems from the relationship between the known and unknown. We feel security in something that is established. This leads to the anxiety of separation. This is in fact intrinsic to our consciousness. Natural to our psychology. It is reflected naturally through the separation from the womb at the moment we are birthed. The baby is unaware of its new environment. It seeks to return back to safety, back to the known. The home we live in is a reflection of our security and safety. The home reflects the womb. As Aries reflects new direction it also requires total freedom. This freedom is absolutely necessary.
In addition to the sign Aries we have the frequency of Uranus. The awakener within the zodiac.
The sign reflects to us, the need to break free from that which has manifested. It reflects the action of de conditioning and the act of liberation. So linked with Uranus is transformation. The breaking of previous form, that which has come before. Remember that security is linked with something that has already been molded. A huge part of what we will be experiencing at this point in time and also strongly linked with the total lunar eclipse is the experience of time moving faster. Uranus is linked with the quickening of our perception of our time space reality. In fact this would be one of the reasons why the frequencies are very intense at this stage. We are expanding our awareness at a rapid rate. So a rapid evolution is occurring in human thought in preparation for a new Astrological Age. This can be experienced as erratic and incomplete thought patterns as the brain seeks to catch up, as it were. The simplest way to know your deeper self and how it is trying to operate in your life right now, is to pay attention to the types of thoughts that are occurring inside you of their own volition (not just analytical thinking!), no matter how incomplete or seemingly unusual they are. These thoughts, the ones that surface time and time again will implicate your future.
So now linked strongly with the Full moon total lunar eclipse is the need to recognize that we are at the brink of another powerful energy gateway. We are finally becoming aware of what needs to be let go of in our lives, that which no longer serves us. Practicing, creating and holding space for the LOVE. The acknowledgement of our sovereignty and connection we have to source that exists within us. Establishing a new inner authority that is a reflection of our own inner vibration. So take this opportunity to let go of the known and embrace the new, even if it seems totally scary. I promise, your spirt knows best! Look within for answers! We all come into this incarnation with this gift. You just have to trust yourself. Choose love and acceptance and find balance.
You now hold the pen to your destiny, how do you want the beginning of your epic adventure that is your life to look?
Full Moon Mantra
The awakener is alive and here with us right now. Our souls are literally burning to be heard, to be liberated from the shackles of our perceived securities. Don´t let the fear of the unknown defeat your spirit! Don’t let your logic override your heart! Take a leap of faith and see that love will carry you! Shed the weights that are holding you down! It’s time to fly!
Be the Change!
New Moon in Libra – Fear or Love?
24 September 2014
The stage is set, the time is up and we are poised at a point in our collective evolution where the relationship we have to ourselves and others will be illuminated. That the extremes of love and fear will be ever present.
Happy birthday Libra!
May the sun shine warm upon your face during this month!
The new moon cycle is upon us again and with this comes a great opportunity to sow the seeds for new evolutionary growth. These planetary alignments with this new cycle bring along with them some profound healing. However, before I go into the details of this new moon cycle, I would like to really highlight a core theme for us to deeply reflect on. The progression of the lunar cycle through each sign every month brings about awareness, which we use and integrate going forward into next new lunar cycle. The last lunar cycle was primarily about healing the illusions of duality and the separateness it brings. The importance this last cycle was to our collective and individual spiritual healing process. In short, the current placement of Chiron and Neptune in Pisces has been revealing to us the deep collective distortional imprints of man-made laws and religions, and the hold they have on our collective awareness. I.e. the illusion that spirt and flesh are separate. That god is outside of ourselves. That we are separate from the universe and nature. That painful feeling of separateness. The void we all carry with us on some level is ultimately the feeling of being abandoned by god (love). So with this lunar cycle we are now being asked to connect to others and bring these lessons into the world. We are being asked to choose love over fear. We are unified through the action of love. The connection that love brings to our life conquers all. Love is the binding element that makes us feel safe. At the bottom line of this global awakening is the realization that we are not disconnected but deeply interconnected. There lies the key to really healing through this New moon In Libra.
It’s time for change! Are you ready?
This is an exciting time for us because for the first time since 2008 Pluto is done with the involution (breaking down) process of its passage through Capricorn. We are very much aware of the distortions in the world and this process needed to happen. We needed to become aware of all of the outdated definitions and outmoded ways of the past. We are entering the phase of, ‘’okay let’s begin fixing this’’. We are right at the beginning so there will still be an extreme amount of uncertainty regarding the what’s and how’s. This is natural and it paradoxically drives us into directions, to explore and figure that out. Again with Pluto’s cycle moving very slowly through the signs its evolutionary appearance cannot be seen straight away. So with this comes the building of the new paradigm. Can you feel it? The first part of this long evolutionary journey is over. On a personal level Pluto, has helped us really let go of some really distorted conditionings. A fresh new me is ready to be birthed out of this current alignment. Exciting is it? At the bottom of this whole process lies the truth; we live in the universe and the universe lives in us. We and the universe are connected. We are progressively taking our power back, taking our sovereignty back. All be it a slow and progressive process, it is still happening and our job is to make sure we keep at it. Building on it. Being the Change.
Mars in Sagittarius square Neptune and Chiron in Pisces
This planetary alignment will be reflecting to us some deep truths about the nature of our reality. This planetary aspect holds immense opportunity to heal of ourselves. Sagittarius connection to Pisces reflects to us the natural law of becoming aligned with our multi-dimensional selves. The aspects of our creation that exists in the non-physical. The bottom line here is that we all have spiritual and evolutionary karmic passages that we come to earth to journey through. So as the human condition is limited through the experience of the 3rd dimensional world, we are faced with the constant challenge of orientating our beliefs (Sagittarius) into an alignment with our karmic journey (Pisces). In short the process of aligning our physical sense of self with a deep inner knowing of who we are. This is also the connection that reflects to us where our intuition comes from. The dark side to this aspect and what we are really healing at this point in time; the illusions and distortions that have been keeping humanity ensnared. The false teachings and truths of god being outside of you. The disconnection from nature that plays out through us giving our power away to external authorities. The deepest layer to this planetary alignment truly lies here. We are given the opportunity to fix that and align ourselves with our own intuitive guidance system as the one that is in synchronicity with who we are. So the message here is that as we dissolve and strengthen our connection to ourselves and honor our own inner authority we align our own personal truths to what matches our inner vibration and truly reflects our natural spiritual selves. Trust and honor yourself!
“I have nature and art and poetry, and if that is not enough, what is enough?”
Vincent van Gogh
Activation of the fire trine. Mars/Jupiter/Uranus
Feel your destiny, unleash your creativity and voice your truth!
The natural law of the fire trine in the zodiac reflects to us the feeling of spirt within us. That divine spark that drives our desires and that helps us actualize ourselves. The evolution of the trine works like this; from a young age we have a sense of excitement of new beginnings (Aries). As our consciousness begins to expand it moves through Leo and we begin to become aware of our special destiny. As our consciousness expands even more it connects with Sagittarius (the search) and it is here that we begin exploring that truth and linking that special destiny to our lives. So with this now in mind it is clear that we now have the chance to align our inner authority (Pluto direct) with the recognition of our inner guidance system (Mars in Sagittarius square Neptune and Chiron in Pisces) to the spirit of our density (Fire trine Mars/Jupiter/Uranus) of our dreams and desires. Start making choices now to bring you closer to your dream! The liberation of man-made distortions begins now!
‘’I dream my painting and I paint my dream.”
Vincent van Gogh
Lunar South Node conjunct Uranus in Aries, quincunx Saturn in Scorpio.
A leap of faith
Liberation and breaking free from the conditions of the unnatural laws and distortions of man-made authority are now being emphasized. The full phase inconjunct reflects limitations and feelings of entrapment. The Saturn function in Scorpio, inconjunct the nodal axis reflected to us the deep truth that the distorted authority powers are not letting go of their illusions of power. This aspects will bring about frustration and anger, which will lead to people eventually breaking down there total faith in authority. This sense of powerlessness will induce the core evolutionary intention for Pluto through Capricorn for all of us. That change and power comes from within. We need to be looking inwardly and forming a new relationship to ourselves. Building communities and developing a deep unifying connection to our fellow man. This aspect is to induce the action of the people taking back their power. This change can bring up strong feelings of insecurity as we take our first steps in a new direction. It is completely natural to experience this as we have nothing to attach ourselves to. We are stepping into the unknown so to speak. It is new and fresh, and anxiety can be a part of this process. The paradox here again is that that lack of knowledge is the very thing driving us to discover what it out there. On a more personal level, we are staring a new cycle, and self-discovery is the theme. Being Reborn.
“What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything?”
Vincent van Gogh
New moon in Libra
From an evolutionary point the phase after Virgo reflects to us the process where we begin to meet the world as a social equal. Libra reflects to us the need to create balance and harmony relative to extremes. It is the process of seeing things as equal through extremes. Binding the illusion of separateness. In Libra we are learning how to give, not just to take. To listen to other people in a way that is true to their experience of reality instead of just filtered through our own expectations. An intention with Libra is to learn about relativity. Where we seek to evaluate ourselves through comparing and contrasting ourselves with others. We are also, in contrast to the polarity Aries, learning to become aware of the needs and realities of other people. This reflects the lesson in Libra of learning to give to other people, as previously in the growth of our subjective awareness we have been taking from others. One of the main themes that will be arising from this new moon is the increased awareness of the polarization between unity consciousness (love) and fear based conscious. As mars moves through Sagittarius this will become very apparent. The Libra theme holds immense insight into the nature of how we can actually move forward here. The north node of the moon (our karmic potential) acts like a compass guiding us forward. The first thing to note here is that the ruler of the node (Venus) is in Virgo, which is making an opposition to Chiron in Pisces meaning that we need to discern from the illusions of separateness in the outside world to recognize which is fear based consciousness. To inwardly heal from such illusions by connecting the heart with the spirit. To now slowly move these higher dimensions of our spiritual selves in alignment with being heart centered. Pluto will be making squares to the Sun and Moon and Uranus. This alignment is reflecting to us the need to individuate ourselves. To question the underlying beliefs that have underpinned all prior actions. Detaching from what one has created and the social sphere in which one has participated. This is a wonderful opportunity to start showing up and expressing your originality. The time where we seek equality and demand justice.
New Moon Mantra
As we are asked to share and express our new found beliefs, do not be disheartened by the voices expressing fear. Instead, use the awareness as a mirror showing you how much closer to love you have come. Feel and express that love and you will soon find that you are connected to a unified field of healing love energy. We do not need to fight the negative, only share our awareness through love. Connect to yourself and express your divinity! Let’s start building a world for ourselves and our children! Let’s purify ourselves of the distortions so that our children do not need to! Let’s connect to each other, all over the globe, to spread the word, spread the love and heal the pain. Step into the light! Feel your way! Be inspired!
Be the Change!
Mars in Sagittarius – Your Ultimate Truth
13 Sep – 26 Oct
So what is the ultimate truth? What is your truth? Your philosophy? This is a time of searching for the answers to these questions. We will be reevaluating our beliefs and bringing them more into alignment with our new evolutionary stage. Bringing forth the seeds for the next conscious shift. This is an exciting time ahead for us. The movement of mars through Sagittarius brings us the feeling of the fire elements. Joy, positivity, optimism and hope. I wrote a little while back when Jupiter went into Leo that for us as a collective it would mark the beginning of activating our life force and finding our inner sense of purpose. Well, with the movement of mars in Sagittarius the beginning phase of this shift will be felt. This is a time in which we will begin strengthening our connection to spirit. This is the time to listen to your inner voice. Your intuition. That inner knowing that exists with you. This is your true guidance system. Jupiter reflects to us our deep intuitive knowing. Jupiter and Sagittarius also reflect natural law. As humans we are hardwired through natural law, the connection to mother earth/nature. So with mars in Sagittarius there is an invitation to continue the progressive movement towards living in aliment with nature and natural laws. Becoming more synchronized with the universal cycles. Becoming more connected to your bio rhythms. Ask yourself in all moments “What is natural for me?” During this cycle it is important to recognize Sagittarius’s polarity, Gemini. Meaning that as we find a belief system that is true to us, we must recognize and respect the diversity of other people’s truths. The danger here is that we may find ourselves forcing our beliefs onto others, to convince them that our truth is the ultimate truth. Whereas all the different perspectives actually reflect the totality of the ultimate truth.
Here are some of the influential aspects Mars will be making during its movement through Sagittarius.
Sep 21, 2014 Mars in Sagittarius square Neptune in Pisces.
A moment to reflect and inwardly connect to our spiritual center. This square will induce a sense of finding the answers from within. It will be very deep and will almost feel like you are lost. How Neptunian! Use this time to reflect and practice the main theme of this mars cycle through Sagittarius; the intuitive senses. We will be filled with daydreams and outer body states of awareness. Be careful to not be over adventurous as it might be tough staying in the physical. Take this opportunity to rest and go within. Nourish your inner spiritual self. You will need it to really be able to take advantage when Mars starts to make the completing fire trine aspects in a few days’ time. Allowing you to find the deeper meaning in your awareness.
Oct 4, 2014 Mars in Sagittarius square Chiron in Pisces
This will be the point in which all the lessons and awareness from the recent full Moon in Pisces that happened on the 9th of September will come to the surface. Our collective wounding around the illusion that we are separate from source will be more apparent. An opportunity to heal through shifting our beliefs in alignment with natural law. Our connection back to mother earth will be strengthened. It will be a sensitive time. So be careful to not be projecting your pain on to others. See the pain in them and connect through recognizing that we are not separate.
Oct 5, 2014 Mars in Sagittarius trine Uranus in Aries
The shift into our hearts. The Natural law of the fire trine in the zodiac reflects to us the feeling of spirt within us. That divine spark that drives our desires and that helps us actualize ourselves. The evolution of the trine works like this; from a young age we have the sense of excitement of new beginnings (Aries). As our consciousness begins to expand it moves through Leo and we being to become aware of a special destiny. As our consciousness expands even more it connects with Sagittarius and it is here that we begin exploring that truth and linking that special destiny to our lives. This process helps us find meaning. So with mars moving through Sagittarius for the next couple of weeks and then making trines to Uranus in Aires and Jupiter in Leo we will be getting the invitation to feel our collective heart beating. A sense of excitement, Purpose and meaning can be felt. The Key to this whole experience is love. Our collective sense of divine appreciation for one another. Our heart filled care for ourselves and others.
Be Courageous! Be Bold! Be Daring!
Be the Change!
Full Moon in Pisces – The Crisis Point
9 September 2014
Astrology does not enact life, we do. The zodiac reflects to us what is happening within us. It is simply a mirror that helps us become self-aware. We use it like a guidance system.
So how does it feel? Shaking hands with god, source, and the universal life force?
Yup that is right. The Pisces archetype reflects to us the ultimate meaning. The overpowering force that is creation. The aspect of life that forces our subjective ego’s to surrender to something outside of our control.
The Pisces Virgo axis
If we look through a microscope and closely observe living cells, we can experience the complexity of something so small. If we stand one night and gaze up at the starry sky marveling at the infinite universe we can surly be met with an overwhelming sense of enormity. The relationship of Virgo to Pieces reflects to us the relationship of the microscopic in the enormity of our cosmos.
With the main theme for this lunar cycle being about Virgo/Pisces, it is important to recognize the other alignments taking place. The whole theme of this month’s cycle is about right action, surrendering to larger forces and becoming aligned with our own inner authority.
So let’s piece this together.
Jupiter in a waning square to Saturn
Refurbishment and innovation.
This aspects has been going on for quite some time now. This cycle reflects to us how we are throwing off outdated definitions and conditionings that no longer serve us in our lives. It deconditions us and helps us innovate our own style of doing things. This is how we individualize ourselves. This cycle helps us break free from old outdated and crystalized structures that no longer serve us and then to implement changes in our life to better suit ourselves. Jupiter and Leo.
The aspect (waning square) is considered a crisis in consciousness because we do not yet have the understanding of how the outcome might be so it causes insecurities and uncertainty to arise. So you might be feeling the pull in a new direction but not quite recognize how to implement it. That is okay, be patient, the fire elements will soon be giving us that needed shove into the new. Just sit back and experiment with the new structures and new ways of living for now.
Pluto Capricorn in a confrontational aspect to Jupiter in Leo
Recognizing our limitations. This is a very challenging aspect because, our imagination is boundless and yet our incarnation on earth is limited within the physical laws of existence. It can feel like we are being blocked in some area of our lives. Like something we are pushing for is simply not coming to fruition.
The purpose of this aspects is teaching us limitation and helping us see things from a realistic perspective. We sometimes have idealistic ideas about our path to whatever we desire, but if we are not also paying attention to our limitations we can easily find ourselves confused or become dishearten as we are met with the reality. On the other hand we must take into consideration to recognize if these limitations are natural or not.
As we all know, our current establishment (Capricorn) has many distortions that we are subjected to. We cannot simply step outside the system and chose not to be a part of it. We are still bound by the laws and restrictions within it, however unnatural they may seem. This aspect is bringing the awareness of the outdated system and the effects it has on us and our world. With this knowledge we are able to make choices to move away from, and stop supporting, the outdated structures one step at a time. This will inevitably lead to their fall. We are living in some extraordinary times. It is a constant process of shifting and changing. Don’t lose faith! There is a point to all of this.
As the outer reality merely reflects the inner, we are feeling these limitations within ourselves as well. But this is where we hold the power to eradicate the outdated systems. We are being offered the chance to become fully aware of the limitations we put on ourselves. We are being offered the gift to decondition ourselves from these outdated structures. So try to focus in on yourself and ask yourself what outdated aspects of your personality are holding you back.
What can you do to shift your perspective?
Uranus a self-reflective aspect to the Sun
Continuing with the theme of this monthly lunar cycle, we have a gibbous phase in conjunction from Uranus to the Sun. This aspect forces inner self analysis and self-adjustment. It helps us stay grounded. It implies limitations; the need to be practical.
So what happens here for us is that we are asked to shift our awareness into alignment with acknowledging the larger forces operating in our lives. To align with seeing that the path to our destiny requires step-by-step, paying attention to detail thinking.
It is easy to become frustrated with these energies. The trick here is to be patient. As difficult as it may sound, it is the best course of action. It is about finding out the best route possible and then taking it, versus just blindly moving in a direction. Can you see the synchronicity with the above paragraph? The acceptance of limitations.
Venus in Virgo
Helping us to see value in right action, this placement is a supporting one. While we are realigning and adjusting ourselves, Venus joins in and helps us see why we need this perspective. We solidify the value in right action; of correct and appropriate choices. If you have or are experiencing crisis, this would be a good opportunity to analyze and re shape the way you go about the process.
Full moon conjunct Chiron in Pisces
An invitation to shake hands with Source, god, universal life force.
Are you feeling overwhelmed? Can situations become overbearing and make you feel like no matter how much you try to organize, arrange and or control things, it just seems to disappear out into the abyss?
Welcome to the Neptunian realm.
The sheer enormity and enveloping energy consumes and overpowers everything. It is the manifested and the unmanifested. All that is and all that can be imagined. This is the unified field of consciousness. This full moon is extremely potent and contains some deep opportunities for healing. It brings into focus and amplifies the Neptune in Pisces story. True to Neptunian fashion the, cycle of Neptune in Pisces is shrouded and cloaked in mysticism.
What is it actually doing for us as a collective?
At this point I would like to share with you a perspective on this transit and how important this Full moon in Pisces conjunct Chiron really is.
The Neptune cycle through Pisces is making us feel extremely sensitive to our environment. It is also offering compassionate love and healing. A part of our healing process moves deeply into the collective distortion that essentially began with the illusion that ‘’god’’ exists outside of ourselves. Through the atrocities of war, famine, destruction and general madness in life it becomes so easy to feel completely abandoned by ‘’god’’. This distortion aids us in now feeling betrayed by this false idea of god and that it does not exists and that we should not believe in this. This rejection of god only carry’s on the disconnection to the true source within ourselves. Leaving a gaping hole in our souls.
The movement of the asteroid Chiron through Pisces reflects to us this collective, and individual wounding. One that reaches very deep into our current conditioning. We all experience this on some level. We have lost our connection to god which means we have lost our connection to ourselves. This runs so deep within our consciousness that this is the very reason we look outside ourselves for answers, to authorities who claim to have the expertise that you yourself are lacking for your existence here on earth. This is why we override our instincts with logical ideas that we have been conditioned to believe. This is why we have allowed the people in power to make decisions for us. This is why we have allowed our earth to be polluted, our food to be poisoned, our land and natural resources to be claimed. This is all because of the illusion of separateness – the distortion that tells us humans are separate from nature, that Spirt and flesh are not connected. That we are not connected. Race separation, gender assignment, economic status etc. This sense of separateness keeps us from the love that we are all so desperately seeking.
Chiron, has been moving through Pisces for some time now and the way that we have been aided in healing is by learning to become compassionate towards our world. Allowing us to see the wound in ourselves and to heal it with compassionate understanding for ourselves and through that also towards each other. This requires first the acceptance of the other dimensions of your multi-dimensional self. i.e. your emotional body, your inner voice, higher mind. These aspects exist. The wound again is that we have severed this connection for such a long time that only through intense turmoil do we look within to find the source.
The main element with this full moon was to align yourself with a knowing that something beyond your physical knowing exists. That there is actually not some creator that exists outside of yourself but your own soul guiding you along the path it chose. So in effect your connection to source, to god, to yourself, and your relationship to the universal life force are one.
Full moon Mantra
As we are experiencing limitations, blockages, being overpowered by circumstances, inner pain and trauma surfacing in waves the most important thing to remember is to breathe. When focusing on the details of life becomes too overwhelming, take a step back to reflect on the larger picture. Lift your chin up and remember why you are here. Connect to Love, wherever you can find it. We are all surrounded by it in fact, we just need to look a little closer, to change our perspective. Follow the path of least resistance, accept the changes that are happening within and around you! Remember that you are an infinite being. That you have everything you need in every moment of your existence. That you do not need to quieten the voice inside you to give way to a louder one. That voice is your soul. Listen to it!
Be the change!
Love and Light,
New moon in Virgo Forecast
25 August 2014
Happy birthday Virgo’s!
This new moon cycle in Virgo holds for us powerful inner healing and inner transformation.
When taking a look at the evolutionary cycle of the planets at the moment, we are faced with another impactful internal paradigm shift. I personally am excited about this one. We are continually shifting and changing inwardly, but every so often we get a shift that takes place which we feel intensely. I personally see this powerful shift having a direct connection to the healing process that is needed after the intense last 3 years of personal inner breakdowns. Up until now that is what has been happening, the structure of our inner reality has been changing. The key to changing the world is recognizing that first change must come from within.
I will break this down for us, and hopefully offer some insights into how to approach this energy pattern.
Virgo New Moon
Every new moon cycle reflects to us, on a smaller scale, the intention set in motion of the greater and slower moving planetary cycles of Pluto, Neptune and Uranus. The theme of this month’s new moon will be about the archetypes of Virgo and the quincunx aspect. From an evolutionary point of view, our journey to this point has been about advancing the awareness of ourselves. From a new direction (Aries) to actualizing (Leo) we have been constructing a pyramid, placing our subjective sense of self (the Leo/Sun) on top. Now, through the Virgo process, we switch the ego from being on top the pyramid to the bottom by flipping our perspective. From this point of view it creates the awareness and desire to be of benefit or help to a larger whole, rather than just to yourself. This in turn starts the process of spiritual re-alignment and it works like this.. The polarity (opposite) of Virgo is Pisces. These symbols in the zodiac reflect to us how the ego begins the process of re-aligning itself. If Pisces symbolizes the night sky, the vast starry realm, then Virgo reflects the human on the ground dwarfed by the enormity (at the bottom of the pyramid). This then leads to the process of the Virgo/Quincunx aspect of forcing introspective, self-analytical consciousness. We develop an awareness of lack or imperfection, which can then promote the step-by-step process of self-improvement. This is the ultimate lesson of the archetype Virgo/Quincunx, to empower yourself through self-improvement. It is like the framework of a building which, depending upon how much effort is put into it, can become a hovel or a lovely home.
The finger of God (yod)
(Uranus in Aries quincunx Saturn/Mars in Scorpio + Mercury in Virgo quincunx Uranus in Aries + Mercury in Virgo sextile Saturn/Mars in Scorpio)
This planetary alignment is named the finger of God for a reason. It forces difficult situations upon us so that we are faced with the challenge to rise above them and to evolve the soul. It is asking us now to truly take hold of some transmutation by slowing down (quincunx), accepting aspects of yourself you would like to improve (Virgo) and when embracing your limitations (Scorpio), you untimely allow yourself to be inwardly transformed. This is essential thinking to this pattern. The Virgo New Moon brings with it a grounding energy, helping us see things in practical terms. So begin reflecting on your current desires, whatever they might be. Then ask yourself how you can improve and make them real? By doing this you enable yourself to be open to new ideas and opportunities. From the point of view in which we are rebuilding a new paradigm, this would be an entirely necessary process. Another way to look at this pattern is to the see the immense opportunity to heal. Here again we are in the situation in which we are adding to the framework that will eventually support our sense of self. Many of us are looking at the world through new eyes since being awoken. Think of this period of time (Virgo New Moon) as a trial and error period. We are learning to balance ourselves and re orientate to the rising frequency. These symbols reflect the potential for some intense inner alchemical transmutation. This shift that is taking place is, in my view, going to be just as important as the Cardinal Grand Cross which happened in April 2014. The patterns I am seeing are telling me that there is another piece of the paradigm shift puzzle that is about to fall into place. Please watch the video linked with this article for a visual on the chart.
Mercury enters Libra 2nd of September
Sharing and connecting.
With the movement of mercury into Libra we are given an opportunity to share our ideas and to connect with others. It´s time to do some networking. Libra is a part of the natural Air trine and implies the natural law of sharing. So the intention with this energy is to expand our perspective and help others do the same. As this is the self-improvement month, take a moment to reflect on how your communication with others effects them. Ask for feedback!
Jupiter Quincunx Pluto (retrograde).
Transmutation of our philosophy.
Every 6 months or so the symbol Pluto moves in what is called ‘’retrograde’’ motion. Now this simply means that the intention of our desires comes up for review. We rethink what we desire during this period of time and adjust it. So with Pluto’s connection to Jupiter here, we have the inward self-alignment (quincunx) of our philosophy (Jupiter) relative to our desires. This is a great chance to reflect on what your philosophy is and how it enables you to reach your dreams. Again this is all in line with the main theme of this new moon.. Self-improvement
Venus enters Virgo 5th September.
‘’The value is in the effort’’
In addition to the theme of the new moon, we see another synchronicity take place. Venus moves into Virgo. The synchronicity here lies in the opportunity to see the value (Venus) in how we can improve things in our lives. Can you see how the universe is adding this layer? Just after the new moon, the effects and awareness will be present and so by the 5th it will be time to become aware of the value we are putting into the world. How to be of service and improve.
Sun/Moon in Virgo oppose Neptune in Pisces.
Lastly to round off this exquisite and intricate cosmic dance, we have the sun and moon in opposition to Neptune in Pisces. Here again the layer of growth comes in aligning your mindset to the totality of creation. To see the connection between you and the infinite universe. The key here is to truly surrender to the project at hand and allow for the water elements to guide you along the path of least resistance. As this shift takes place. Recognize there is a higher plan working through us. You are connected to source and source is within you, you and source are connected.
New Moon Mantra.
Be heart centered
So as we are faced with things in life that we would rather shy away from, find comfort in knowing that this is all a part of the divine plan. Trust the plan! Flow with it! In the midst of change and crisis it can be difficult to see things with a clear perspective. Instead of focusing on the outer turmoil turn inwards. Be grounded. Focus on healing yourself. Transform your pain into the strength you can use to help others.
It is time to become a light that helps guide humanity to a new awakened paradigm. It is time to become a part of the solution.
Be the change!
Love and Light Simon
The Full Moon in Aquarius – Fundamental Change
10 August 2014
Pluto in Capricorn
We need a new system, not a new government!
From 2008 till 2024 Pluto’s movement through Capricorn is leading us on a path in which we are tearing down the outdated foundation of our reality. Everything is outmoded. We are at a critical point in our evolution in which the orientation from unnatural living to natural living is being shaped. It requires us building a new earth from the very foundation up. It means creating a new community.
So where are we in this process? What is this powerful full moon reflecting to us?
Full Moon in Aquarius
Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much!
New Moon in Leo kicked us off in sublime fashion filling us with excitement, personal empowerment and the feelings of a new special destiny awaiting us. This is all great and wonderful, but we have now reached a point in the evolutionary process in which we need to inwardly reflect on those desires that are emanating from deep within us.
The Full Moon always asks us to take a good look at ourselves and see what we can improve, and this particular full moon’s lessons are around developing objectivity (see “Jupiter in Leo – the Activation of Life Force”). The Aquarius sign holds space for us to link our dreams in with the overall picture of reality, to take our creative talents and find out where they are needed in the community. This moon is also covered with Saturn’s lessons of responsibility, maturity and reflection. Our combined talents and efforts are the direction we are to be moving towards if we are to achieve our goals. Meanwhile the universe is reinforcing this with the synchronized transit of Neptune inconjunct the sun and Jupiter.
Neptune in Pisces inconjunct the Sun and Jupiter in Leo
The creative process is of surrender not control!
This brings lessons teaching us how to align our ego with the knowledge and awareness of larger universal forces. If we are getting ahead of ourselves or happen to have any illusions of grandeur, this transit will repeatedly knock us off of our high horses and remind us of the greater forces we are a part of. So let’s reflect on our personal identification and then purge the egocentric structure of any feelings of false empowerment. When we move forward in actioning our special destiny, we will be grounded in linking our destiny with the overall picture of reality and life on earth, not for self-glorification but instead for a healthy orientation towards integrating it into society for the betterment of humanity. Do this, and you will be greatly recognized for your efforts.
The Wright brothers believed in flight. Their special destiny, linked with the idea of bettering humanity, has left their presence echoing in our conscious. They taught the world to fly.
Another very grounding planetary alignment stopping us from taking off is Saturn squaring the Sun and Moon.
Saturn in Scorpio square Full Moon in Aquarius and Sun in Leo
An exact planetary alignment!
With great power comes great responsibility!
At the core of this pattern an amazing opportunity for re-birth of new psychological behavior is available. These energies will help us to make fundamental changes. We must learn that with this recent surge of power and purpose, solid responsible structure must first be formed. Saturn’s lessons are tough but the rewards are profound. We are given great power to do great things but unless we act with responsibility and respect our limitations will lead us directly to our own downfall.
Luckily we have already spent the last 7 months connecting to ourselves with Venus transiting through Cancer.
Venus in Cancer
Be true to yourself!
These months have been all about re-inventing our self-image by truly connecting with who we are. We have been getting to the core of our interconnectedness with nature. It has been a long and tough journey for us all. It is not easy to face ourselves. Now, with Venus moving out of cancer the final touches are being sculpted on to our identity. We should now have identified our true values and are getting ready to express them.
So what needs to change?
Mercury and the Sun trine Uranus
It always seems impossible until it’s done.
Transformation takes place when we challenge the established structure with new and innovative ideas. This leads to liberation. Remember the main theme in our evolutionary journey (Pluto in Capricorn)? Uranus is all about the future, about breaking free and allowing evolution to continue, to not get stuck within outdated systems. So with this beautiful Sun/Mercury conjunction aligning with Uranus in Aries we get the chance to break free from distorted patterns and re-invent ourselves. Your challenge is to explore all of your new thoughts and ideas. To see where they go.
Don’t hesitate to try new things, even if they have never been done before. You are bestowed with greatness don’t edit your potential! Be the change!
Full Moon Mantra
As we reflect on our new found sense of purpose we are invited to join hands with likeminded souls to co-create the foundations that are to become our future. We have great forces working behind us and with this comes the responsibility to stay grounded and focused on our collective goal… to create a better world for all of us to live in. So bring your true value into the world and dare to break new ground. Each and every one of us are important pieces in the puzzle with the picture of a new world. “There is no faith without hope, no justice without compassion, no humanity without fairness… every one of us, the least of us, is still divine.”
Love and light,
The New Moon in Leo – the Birth of Our New Identity
26 July 2014
‘’Not the absence of fear but the strength to conquer it’’
The curtain is opening and the main act of the show is about to start. Shh… the theater´s lights are dimming while the center stage remains brightly lit. This is what we have all been waiting for. Now appearing. The star of the show? YOU!
Jupiter’s grand entrance into LEO begins with a wonderful planetary alignment. The Sun beautify positioned in synchronicity with the moon and Jupiter to form a powerful surge of energy into this new moon cycle. A new opportunity to sow the seeds of potential evolutionary growth is available to us. The theme? Creative self-actualization! The chance to ROAR as loud as possible. It is time to leave your mark on the world and express your new authentic self. You know, the one you have been so intensely working on for the last 7 months. As always the universe brings us the supporting cast and crew for the task at hand.
Mars joins Saturn in Scorpio.
Saturn has been in Scorpio bringing up all the hidden distortions since 2012. All of the themes have then been processed and reflected upon during the past 6 months of Saturn’s retrograde cycle.
Meanwhile, in synchronicity with Saturn’s retrograde Mars has been in the sign Libra, forcing us to work through our differences and find equality. This was not an easy journey for us as it truly felt like we had our boundaries pushed and ours toes stepped on by others. Mars, our pure unedited instinctual drive, feels very uncomfortable in the diplomatic, harmony seeking sign of Libra. So we found our energies clashing with other´s. We found ourselves longing for more justice and balance in the world and in our personal relationships.
NOW, As Saturn turns direct to re-establish healthy structures Mars enters Scorpio to give us the in-suppressible fearless energy needed to actualize and manifest your desires.
So with both of these symbols in the same sign and fresh and ready to go, we are truly in for a ride. Some qualities that we are able to receive from this transit are to be able to form deeper bonds with the people we love and to be able to extend that love to our fellow earth citizens. But there is a double edged sword here, the negative side of these energies is to create conflict and confrontation. Allow love to be your desire not war. The quote “When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace.” By Jimi Hendrix describes the clashing forces that we are facing at the moment perfectly.
Pluto oppose Venus and Mercury in Cancer.
Letting go of the past for good! This transit will be challenging. This signature reveals to us that although the Jupiter in Cancer cycle is over we still have the effects of this cycle echoing in our reality.
We are getting an opportunity to now finally detach and allow the emotional flow. Simply allow the old self to be but only a memory of the past. What is supporting this? Just before the new moon on Saturday, you were most likely feeling the final effects of the Cancer theme of the last month. Uranus is squaring Pluto and at the same time squaring Venus. Venus will also be in opposition to Pluto. So hold on tight and just recognize that all you are being given here with this pattern is the opportunity to finally sort out that which no longer works for you in your life. Sort through your needs and only take with you the ones that work for you.
Mars Square Jupiter, Sun and Moon in Leo
Finding Courage and reaming heart centered. With the recent events taking place in the world like the madness and chaos in Gaza and the Malaysian Airlines tragedy. It is easy for us to loose complete hope that there is going to be a positive change in the world. The fear of life on earth can creep in and create doubt. In these times it is important to remember that “It is not the absence of fear but the strength to conquer it” that will get us through the darkness and bring us closer to LOVE AND LIGHT.Choose to be courageous your face our fears, stand up or for what is our birth right as human beings. Don´t become consumed by the fate of fear based propaganda. Stand up for what you can change in the world and send love and light to the rest. Don´t dwell in the feeling of powerlessness! You are powerful beyond measure. So for each and every one of us the birth of our new identity has now been formed. Breathing spirit and life force into it is the next task at hand.
Water trines. Neptune, Chiron, Saturn, and Venus.
These trines are extremely helpful in aiding us during these transformative times. Water in nature plays such an important role, it flows, and takes on any shape that the earth creates. Water is nourishing and helps us stay rejuvenated. It cleanses and washes away. We can take advantage of this energy to create and maintain a high frequency, by bringing more water elements into our lives. Above all when the energies become too overwhelming, slow down, take deep breaths and slowly remind yourself of who you are.
THE STAGE IS ALL YOURS:
It is time to open up our hearts and to let the love for you and humanity flow in, around and through you! The lion leads the pack and is the king of the jungle, it is time to be the master of your soul. You have to access the courage of this beautiful beast and ROAR your truth. Find the love, joy and compassion for yourself. YOU are here for a reason. Your birthright. Show us what you’ve got!
The mantra for the new moon.
As humanity wakes up and starts to observe the truth of our current world. I invite you to act on the passion that drives you. With the help of this year cycle. Start leading the way forward for humanity. Start acting on the impulses and idea’s emanating from deep down inside of you. Bring to the world your divine spark! Actualize the dream! Follow the heart! Spread the love! Be the leader of the new paradigm! Show up in the world as the highest expression that there can possible be of YOU! The time to take a stand for humanity and for your home, mother earth is NOW! So bring life and attention to things! Brand yourself! Express your identity! Integrate your personal truth into the world! Share your gifts! Start breathing fire energy into your body! Stand up for what you believe in!
BE THE CHANGE!
Love and light
The full moon in Capricorn – The final push
12 July 2014
Wow! What an intense couple of weeks it has been!
The final lessons of the Jupiter in cancer story is being felt, and boy do they seem frightening.
We are half way through the new moon in cancer cycle and in my personal view, this full moon has an extra potency to it. Its deep effects on humanities evolution are profound.
Here is why..
Pluto In Capricorn – standing up and taking responsibility for our actions!
Remember the earth’s transformation at the moment is about a reaction to being poisoned. Mother earth is energetically responding to the effects of the distorted human desires. Spiritually she is throwing up. This is profound. We have to now clean it up and heal her, nurture her and bring her back to good health. Collectively as a human race we are being affected by this. Individually we are doing the very same thing as Gaia.
The man made laws of the EGO do not honor nature’s way. The natural way is ECO. There is no hierarchy in the ecosystem, this is a creation of man. We are an extension of mother earth, we live on her back so to speak. We are organic beings interconnected with all the other aspects of nature. So through that we are feeling sick too. When she gets sick, then so
do we. Emotionally, physically and spiritually. The full moon in Capricorn is filled with insight relating to where our sickness lies.
Why do we have the sickness?
The Cancer/Capricorn axis in our lives reflects how we go about developing responsibility and duty, the responsibility is to our community, our home. We look after it, we treat it with care. The protection of the home. The outer shell (Capricorn) protects the inward squishy side (Cancer). The father, protector (Capricorn) of his wife who carries child in the womb (Cancer). This is the natural expression of this axis. Sadly…
Our man made Ego laws do not honor the natural ways of living.
Emotional suppression leads to distortion.
We have been taught and conditioned to withhold any emotional responses. Signs of any emotional behavior is immediately judged as being weak. Our disturbance to the psyche here is huge.
Can you see it? Let me illustrate using the example of World War 2 and the industrial revolution.
A man is called upon to preform duty for his country. Compelled by the natural archetype in Cancer/Capricorn he accepts. He feels pride and honor to be of service and of value. To Protect and serve. Virgo/Capricorn/Taurus/Cancer. Upon his arrival on the battlefield he gets the picture quickly. There is no smelling of the roses here. Show emotion and the enemy wins. Emotional suppression comes from observing the atrocities of war. There is no place for it here. Also, think of the effects on the woman at home during the war times.
The job market then becomes a replacement for the battlefield. Man needs to provide for his family. The behavior patterns from war times still linger on in our psyche. The general of your troop is now called your boss. The theme here is that there is a hierarchy. You obey orders and don’t question them! You have to fight for your wage to pay your bills. To survive. Men were never taught to access their emotional side because their environment never allowed them to have them. He has a job that he hates. He comes home and due to suppressed emotional states and lack of personal power, acts out with his family. Controlling his kids and conditioning them to have low self-worth through judgments and criticisms, instead of being kind and gentle. Lacking the ability to guide his children with his wisdom of life experience. To teach NATURAL cause and effect rather than the distortions of power and powerlessness. Unable to connect to the emotional side so that he is able share and be intimate with his wife in an undistorted way. Anger is a state induced through deep feelings of pain. This is a painful reality for the man. His actions lead to what you see today as domestic violence etc.
In this man made society where the natural is rejected, everyone suffers. It is often understood how women and children are affected by the suppression of the natural feminine. Suppression of the SOUL but EVERYONE is affected deeply. What is natural for one is natural for all. Everyone on earth has experienced lifetimes under the patriarchal, man-made laws which have left behind some deep wounding. Your job now is to recognize that wounding, to accept it and welcome it with love. For its imprints are only a conditioned aspect of yourself. It is not who you truly are.
Allowing the water to seep through the cracks.
The Grand Water Trine flows harmoniously, healing with compassion, empathy, self-acceptance and self-love! The way to heal the damage is through the emotional body. Water cleanses and rejuvenates us. Use this supporting energy to cleans your soul!
The Full Moon conjunct Pluto in Capricorn.
Purification of the soul comes from letting the sides of yourself that have been suppressed to be shown. It is time to allow innocence and vulnerability to be our strength! It takes courage to be open and vulnerable. It takes strength to show our weaknesses. It’s time to allow our childlike selves to be present in every moment. Rinse yourself of ALL the distortions! The guilt, the displaced emotions, the inner and outer judgments, the logic that overrides the HEART! Embrace love! Find the spirit in yourself! Connect to your heart! Practice compassion and forgiveness! See yourself and others as the beautiful rays of light we are! Allow yourself shine BRIGHT!
Rectification and Re-Orientation – the New Moon’s Message
27 June 2014
The zodiac at the moment is highlighting some interesting aspects supporting inner spiritual growth. With the amount of flushing out, changing of core beliefs and re-orientation of our imbalanced self, it is no wonder that we are feeling like everything is intense at the moment.
As many of you know by now, we are in the process of going through a massive transformation. Global consciousness is upgrading its frequency and leaving behind its outdated self and an emergence of a more balanced state between ‘masculine’ and ‘feminine’ energy is the bottom line of this transformation.
Our Journey So Far…
Each year has a theme, and for 2014 it is all about clearing out the noise, clutter, pollution and corrupt demiurge. These are aspect of ourselves that no longer support us, and through this cleansing process we will be able to re-align with our inner authority; to stop looking outside ourselves. So far this year we have been flooded with supporting energies to force us in on ourselves. (For more on this see 2014 – the Year of Individuated Authority).
We begin with the larger cycle of Jupiter in Cancer. Here the frequency pattern for the last year has been re-calibrating our inner intuitive connection to our home (mother earth) and more directly our inner identity. It also pointed to the evolutionary need for total inner security. You can see this manifesting in the world as we start to use organic products, promoting more natural ways of nurturing ourselves, spending time in nature to relieve stress etc. We are breaking away from that which is toxic.
Our relationship to ourselves is also changing. During this cycle we have had to work bravely at accepting our vulnerabilities and insecurities – a major aspect of this cycle. To truly make use of this frequency pattern we have honor the damaged aspects of our earth and ourselves. We must be brave and courageous. To take off the amour and feel the pain. To accept and integrate the vulnerable aspects is to be loving to yourself. We must heal through this. Chiron and Neptune transiting through Pisces are really helping there. So compassion to yourself and others is key. Recognizing the wound in yourself will help make it easier understand the wounds in others.
It is a time of finding love and acceptance. Know you are an infinite being with the universal source flowing through you. You are safe!
Our Journey Continues…
So this is how the theme of the story is playing out this month.
I will begin with Mars. Mars, the trigger of our evolutionary growth, is in Libra and in opposition to Uranus in Aries. We feel people are stepping on our toes. We feel frustrated with others. We are quick to fire off, and projections are at a peak at this point.
Also stirring this up is the challenging aspect of Saturn (duty and responsibility) in opposition to Venus (inner outer relating). This is an intense cycle. The shadow aspects of our identity is coming out. This is the reason why mars is in Libra, so we can deal with the parts of ourselves that are out of alignment.
At the same time we have Uranus is in a tension aspect to Jupiter. This is where the emotional vulnerabilities are emanating from. We can feel that something is not working for us but we are not quite sure how to proceed.
Liberation and Healing
So how can we improve? Question your value system and to take a good look at how you are able to improve your overall worth. Search and explore aspects of yourself which bring you security but may be holding you back because of feeling too comfortable with the security it brings. A good question to ask yourself is: Are my current definitions of my needs truly and honestly giving me what I need, or are they just familiar and comfortable?
It is an opportunity to expand, rinse out, work through and dissolve.
Question an aspect of your belief that is causing you to create conflict or be angered within yourself and others. Ask yourself, is this serving my best interests. Is this supporting what I am creating or wanting in my life? What is holding you back? Remind yourself to transcend duality. Find your heart and live in it.
Be the person who shines through the heart and in turn helps others find and be in theirs.
Use the opportunity of Mercury retrograde to review these things in your life. The full moon that happened on Friday the 13th 2014 helped make you become aware of what this out dated, non-helpful vulnerability might be. Think back to last Friday… and consider it in the context of the story and understating the cycle of Jupiter in Cancer.
New Moon, New Cycle
This is what the New Moon in Cancer on the 27th June can offer…
Generally speaking, a new moon represents a new cycle. New beginnings. And setting in motion for a new cleaner aspect of the self to emerge.
This month, Cancer (self-image, home, inner security) is big theme. Mercury and Jupiter are in Cancer; the evolutionary intention of Pluto, through polarity, is also in Cancer; the Sun is moving into Cancer; and the new Moon happening there. It is quite clear that the archetypal energy of Cancer is where it’s all going down right now.
So to me, this is what I feel we have to do: sow the seeds for the next month with this as your mantra…
Inner security means feeling that you are emotionally resilient and believe in yourself. You recognize that you are an infinite being of creation and alive with source energy pulsating through your veins. Your destiny is in your own hands and you are the captain of your Soul. The key to your journey lies within. You understand that your brilliance and amazement are a part of you. It is your birth right. You are a sovereign being. A multi-dimensional self.
The energy here and now is helping you understand how far you have come in this process of LETTING GO of the old outdated sense of Self – one that no longer serves you. As you let go and embrace your authentic self and apply compassion and self-love, embrace the Oneness. Feel connected. Still the Ego and remain heart centered. Allow your divine organic pure crystal light to shine through your physical form.
For you are ALIVE!
Love and light,
