TIPS FOR TODAY:
# 1 – There is a free global teleconference and gathering for Awakening Women titled The Keys to Feminine Power: Awakening the Three Power Bases of the New Co-creative Feminine with Katherine Woodwood Thomas and Claire Zammit on Thursday, July 14th at 5:30pm PDT. Your can register for the class here and also download the recording once it’s over.
# 2 – Here’s an astrological update from Astrograph.com on the first quarter moon cycle we just entered. I especially like the words of wisdom presented in the very last few sentences…
July 7th FirstQuarter Moon
A powerful FirstQuarter Moon is coming up, with connections to all the outer planets. This happens late on Thursday evening, July 7th, just before midnight on the West Coast, and so therefore affecting the morning of Friday July 8th even more strongly. The configuration is remarkable and follows the remarkable NewMoon energy from the 1st, which of course was also a Solar Eclipse.
The eclipse touched Saturn directly and also opposed Pluto in early Capricorn. This is therefore a very strong lunation cycle, when many things about our lives could radically alter, and when the polarization of these times that we are living through will become even more intense – if such is possible. The tension of polarization does ease considerably after this month. However, nothing can stop the dramatic life changes that are coming down on all of us, so that it is important to continue to keep alert to everything that is happening around you; and within you as well.
This first quarter is notable in that the Sun parallels both Venus
and Mars. Venus is exactly Uranus, while Mars is Saturn, and to complete the emphasis on the cardinal T-square, Jupiter almost exactly
trines Pluto, amping up the thrust toward transformation. The First
Quarter Moon is further distinguished by the strong sesquiquadrate
aspect that the Sun and the Moon make to Neptune
in the first degree of Pisces.
This means that the Sun and Moon, in with each other, have a midpoint that is exactly opposite Neptune. Known as a sesqui-yod, this somewhat difficult connection between these lights and the planet of mystical compassion focuses both conscious mental energy and
less conscious emotional charge on the deeper and more mysterious realm of our inner world. We might expect a little more spaceyness on the part of those we come into contact with, and in ourselves, while the urge for compassionate union – and the feeling that we are all essentially one being – forms the backdrop of the potentially problematic connections that we experience. That Venus and Mars
are also implicated in this configuration makes interactions with others
significant – especially regarding members of the opposite sex.
Amongst the swirling forces of this powerful crossroad in time we might find the grace to rise above and to synthesize, for certainly that is one way to read the energetics. We also might find ourselves trapped in old patterns of dysfunctional interrelationship that have not always served us so well, and that continue to trip us up. We win as individuals and as representatives of the larger collective by applying greater awareness to whatever does come up; taking as our maxim that “to understand all is to forgive all.“ For whenever we can allow ourselves to see the bigger picture, the real truth of our situation, that truth shall indeed set us free.
# 3 – Don’t forget to check out the upcoming Agents of Conscious Evolution (ACE) training at the end of July presented by the The Shift Network and Barbara Marx Hubbard. I’ve mentioned this event (see previous posts) before and will be participating myself, and urge anyone that feels drawn to get involved to do so. NOW really is the time!
# 4 – And a little Abraham to end on…
“If we were talking to you on your first day here we would say, ‘Welcome
to planet Earth. There is nothing that you cannot be or do or have. And your work here—your lifetime career—is to seek joy.’
As you think thoughts that feel good to you, you will be in harmony with who-you-really-are. And in doing so you will utilize your profound freedom. Seek joy first, and all of the growth that you could ever imagine will come joyously and abundantly unto you.”— Abraham
