Ocean advice, peace, full moon in Scorpio, Tap Into Money, free distance healing, and Abraham


 

 TIPS FOR TODAY:

 

# 1 – Clever……and good advice.

 

# 2 – Peace vs Power…..or BOTH?! A “little” reminder from Dr. Sue Morter….

Peace or Power (or Both)? 

Are you devoted to Peace in the world?

Really?

Are you experiencing it right now? How about all day yesterday? How about inside your thoughts as you contemplated your day to come? Only ever Peace? Mostly?  

No?

Then you forgot your Power. Yes, that power to experience anything you choose, regardless of the external world and its ever-present ability to offer up exactly what you need to strengthen your memory of your magnificence kind of Power!

Just a little reminder. :-)

 

# 3 – Insight into the current Scorpio full moon and other cosmic happenings. Here’s an excerpt from what  Henry Seltzer at astrograph.com has to say about the energies at play….it seems it’s all about that balancing act between sovereignty and synergy, the individual and the community….

Because Mars is currently already occupying the degree of its May 19th turning point, so that it is standing virtually stock-still in the sky right now, in Libra, and aspecting Venus by opposition and by contra-parallel, and also by mutual reception, we have on our hands a radical re-statement of what it means to be in sole possession of ourselves and of our destiny going forward, versus a life lived in terms of partnership with others. Of course, both of these philosophical positions can be overdone. We all know intuitively that we cannot live out our days in dependence and in complete merger with others, and yet, in some strange way we cannot entirely go it alone, either. Our every act of soul growth must be strictly for ourselves, and by our own inner light, independent of the desires and the claims upon us by the surrounding collective. We must come to our own understanding, in our own way. And yet, that soul growth that we come to must also paradoxically take place in a setting that allows others as well as ourselves to participate in the ultimate scheme of things, living out and expanding upon the world that we have helped to manifest.

# 6 – And some Abe to end on…..

If there is something that you have to do, resist the temptation to do it under duress. Ask yourself, “What’s the worst thing that would happen if I didn’t do this?” And if you can get away with not doing it at all, don’t do it. And then imagine what would it feel like to have this done. Spend a day or two, if you can, just 15 minutes here, 5 minutes here, 2 minutes here, here and here, imagining it completed in a way that pleases you! And then, the next time you decide that you’re going to take action about it, the action is going to be a whole lot easier.

—Abraham

# 6 – And from Abraham…

Law of Attraction abounds, and when it is said to you, “Ask, and it is given,” there is no more powerful statement that is at the basis of what makes things happen than that. Now, how is it that you think you ask? With your words? The Universe doesn’t hear your words. You ask with your desire. The desire that is born out of the contrast. That desire. That wanting. That’s what summons the Life Force.—Abraham

# 5 – Insightful take from astrograph.com on the current new moon phase. It seems to point to what I’ve been hearing all along….that now is not about trying to fix what seems broken, but coming up with a whole new way of living and being in the world. So we better get good at letting go of the past fast. :-)

Friday’s New Moon is powerful in that it brings great energy, as the New Moon always does, and yet that energy is bottled up. Mars, action planet, is stifled by its near-exact conjunction with Saturn, with the New Moon exactly sextile. This configuration brings directly into the picture the limitations, and also the sense of groundedness and the lessons represented by Saturn. The other outer planets are all aspected as well. Mercury trines Uranus and aspects Pluto, while Mars and Saturn are quintile to Pluto, and the New Moonopposes Neptune. We are living in exciting and transformative times, with the second exact hit of the UranusPluto square due just around the corner in mid-September. This major collision of outer planet heavyweights was the single aspect most aligned with the revolutionary sixties, and now characterizes our current decade of the Turbulent Teens. Saturn was involved with the polarization of those times as well as of these, our own.

At this moment of intensity, we find that there is very little agreement about anything on the political scene. Is the Republican vice-presidential choice an up-and-coming young star of the congress and of fiscal conservatism or a poster boy for a far-right agenda with very little substance? Is global warming a scientific reality or a plot by crazed liberals? Is President Obama responsible for the greatest dip in the economy since the Great Depression or is he trying his best to clean up after a flawed predecessor? As we head toward an important American election, the presence of both Saturn and UranusPluto in these fall skies, starting with this New Moon, unfortunately presages even more of these types of polarization.

But Saturn has great and good lessons for us as well. It is one thing to go off into idealization and the romance of the perfect scheme, and yet another to ground this vision into practicality and bring the ship carrying our dreams safely into harbor. So now we all have the chance to make the necessary compromises in our lives that – with our ideals more or less intact – will see us through. It is important to take the high road whenever possible, and to give those we love as much slack as we can, without of course abandoning our principles. Not every battle is worth fighting.

We are slowly absorbing the recognition of the necessity for radical change. This means that we must suffer somewhat, and that we must leave behind some aspect of our lives that while we might hold it dear, just does not serve us any longer. It is a long and winding and a difficult road, but it is the road we must follow in order to get to where we truly need to be, as a society and in our individual lives as well.

# 6 – And Abraham’s insight on abundance…

Many people are approaching life from the flawed premise that if they work hard and struggle long and pay a big enough price, they will then be rewarded with financial well-being. And since they do not realize that in their struggle they are denying themselves alignment with the abundance they seek, when the abundance does not come, they attribute it to luck or favoritism that is being directed away from them and toward another.

But there is no luck or favoritism. There is only allowing or resisting, letting in or keeping out the abundance that you deserve.

As you gradually train your own thoughts into those of positive expectation, as you align with thoughts of worthiness and Well-Being, as you align with your true power by seeking good-feeling thoughts—you will no longer offer resistance to your own abundance. And when your resistance stops, your abundance will come. A flood of good-feeling ideas and possibilities will flow to you. Opportunities and propositions will be plentiful. And soon you will stand in knowing amusement that all of this was always there within your reach, but in your resistant state of attraction, you were not yet able to experience it . . . but then, it came—not because of your struggle but because of your ease.— Abraham

TIPS FOR TODAY:

# 1 – An insightful article from Guy Finley titled Don’t Let Your Soul Starve to Death

Key Lesson: We will make detailed preparations for a single day off, lay out careful plans for a special date, or spend untold moments worrying over what we should wear; but few of us rarely take the time to prepare our interior life to receive the higher impressions that awaken our soul to its substance and meaning.We go through our lives in a continual dance of being filled with something that needs an answer, and then going out and finding that answer… only to find out that our answer wasn’t quite the answer. Then, as we bring to ourselves whatever we thought we needed, it changes. Or, as we actually see that it doesn’t fulfill us, then the thing inside of us that wants this answer changes.

Take the First Step to Wholeness

Slowly but surely we reach the point where we understand that this change, this movement of the part inside of us that always has what it needs in mind, is itself not the basis for providing an answer, but turns out to be the basis of our dissatisfaction.

If we’re interested in spiritual things, we gradually realize that what we really need is to understand this nature that seems to be a bottomless basket, because there is no peace in it. Every time we find the peace that it promises by answering this nascent desire — this movement that comes into us — then we go here and there, and we always wind up eventually with the feeling of sand running through our fingers… if not by the object of our desire actually falling apart, then by the very nature of time.

Eventually we reach the point where we start to realize that we are not going to find peace, contentment, happiness, strength, fearlessness — all of the things that in our heart of hearts we wish we had — outside of us. That may sound like a simple idea, but we have to go through thousands of painful experiences before we start to realize that it’s not a matter of looking in the wrong place. These multiple “dead-ends” are just the effect of the real problem, which is this: we’ve been blindly following a part of us that “tells” us that it knows what we really need, but that is actually clueless! And with this realization, we begin a completely new stage in our journey.

Now we understand that the longing to seek out separate pleasures arises within us from separate parts of us that seek only a momentary completion of themselves (and often at the cost of the whole of us as well). In this new light of self-discovery we see two things at once: first, it’s impossible to arrive at wholeness a “piece” at a time. With that much clear, comes the startling realization we’ve been searching for all along. If we don’t need to “create” this wholeness we seek, then there’s only one thing left for us to do: we need to see, and agree that what we seek already lives within us, and we within it. Now we know our one great task: watch for whatever promises us freedom, and then quietly, consciously refuse to see ourselves through the eyes of what we know is incomplete. Then we live wholeness itself, instead of spending our lives looking for it.

# 3 – Here’s more on the latest astrological phase we’re in from Michelle Karen…

Dearest Friends,

You have always heard me say how much I love Mercury retrograde. I  personally enjoy watching which of my friends I haven’t heard from in a  long time, re-emerge and remembering projects I may have left aside and  forgotten about. When the planet of communication appears to go  backwards in the sky, there is invariably an element of unpredictability and adventure.

But since August 3rd and until August 26th when it will go direct again at  18º Leo,  if you feel that your world has fallen into the worst chaos,  you are not alone! The reason why I am so late in getting you this, is  because every time I started writing about it, I was stopped by my  computer crashing in all sorts of different and strange ways! In the  past couple of weeks, I have spent more time at my local Apple Store and the Auto body shop (that’s another story!), than I have at home,  working! :-(

Basically, all the structures of our lives are being destroyed so that we may  reconstruct ourselves in a way that is much truer to our divine purpose. If it feels like what happened in the past few years seems part of  another lifetime, it’s because… it is! With only 10 weeks left to the  first ending of the Mayan Calendar (October 28, 2011) which completes  the cycle begun on January 5, 1999, we are coming now at MAJOR crossroads. A reincarnation without leaving our physical body. We  simply don’t have the luxury to float around aimlessly. We need to know  what our hearts truly want, pursue our dreams and believe in our ability to manifest miracles in our own lives. Become the vision that you have  for yourself, and it will materialize!

Communication is worst that during any other Mercury retrograde because of the  Opposition (180º aspect) with Neptune. Loosing our keys, receiving  packages that are empty, strange misunderstandings, messages from our  bank that make no sense at all, feeling off, erasing messages before  having read them, loosing our address book, landing in the wrong place,  mistaking an appointment date, missing a plane, misplacing an important  document, etc…. are just a few very normal occurrences. Our heads are  in the clouds. Nothing is stable. Neither within, nor without. Our  perceptions are changing. New situations are suddenly and unexpectedly  replacing old ones. Our reality is shifting. We have no choice but to  let go of the past and surrender to the unknown. We may feel strange  anxieties for no apparent reason, and in the face of very real life  threatening dramas, be calmly detached. Time could be simultaneously  accelerating and slowing down. We could experience emotions ranging from mild to severe depression, wonder where we are, why we are living this  way, what is the purpose of it all. It’s almost as if we are  simultaneously in and outside of our lives, observing the motions  without participating in them. Our dreams at night could be particularly vivid. We could feel we are dreaming when we are awake and awake when  we are dreaming. We should keep a dream journal for valuable messages.  Our visions in states of meditation could be very powerful. Movie images could stick in our psyche longer than usual. We could experience  spontaneous telepathy and truly understand  how our thoughts are affecting everything and everyone around us. It is  essential at these times, that we live with the highest degree of  integrity and know that we are Masters.

Nothing now is as it seems, and yet we need to trust that, even if it feels like hell, in the bigger picture, everything is in perfect divine order. All our vulnerable spots are being shaken, allowing us to see where we still need to work on  ourselves. Whether it’s financial issues, relationship problems, career  dilemmas, location uncertainty or all of the above, we have to take a  very honest look at ourselves. As the veil between the visible and the  invisible is thinning, answers could come to us in surprising ways. Our  sleep could be restless. We could wake up after only a few hours feeling like we’ve been hit by a truck or drank all night (even though we  didn’t!). When ancient, heavy thought and emotional patterns are  released, all the symptoms of a major physical detoxification can be present. A lingering dissatisfaction could make us wish to  change our lives from A to Z. Responsibilities could feel difficult to  meet, because basically, we don’t really care anymore. It’s a strange,  volatile time during which we should avoid making any drastic decisions. After the chips fall on September 10, we should have more clarity.

And as if this weren’t enough. to top it all, this whole month of August, we are also going through a T-Square between Mars in Cancer, Pluto in Capricorn and  Uranus in Aries!! This is not a time to count on anyone but ourselves.  Our temper could be explosive, our need for freedom, intense and our  rebellion, dramatic. Sudden changes and interferences are affecting our  course and creating much confusion. We need to rely on our intuition to  see us through these times. We are being prepared for a whole new  beginning, on a whole new plane of reality. It’s as if we have boarded a plane that will land on a first exotic destination on October 28, 2011  that we had until now never even known existed!

We are being asked to purge ourselves of destructive patterns. We could  feel that certain circumstances or people are closing in on us, forcing  us to a decision we are not ready to make. It is essential that we meet  challenges with ingenuity and if we have reservations, keep our  involvement impersonal. Intense commitments have the power now to turn  our reality inside out which is a good thing if it is in alignment with  our hearts’ desires. We are completing old cycles, and circumstances ask of us that we cooperate with everybody else’s efforts for the good of  all. As we are evolving individually, all of us, as a group, are being  affected. Oneness is not just a nice philosophical concept. It is  becoming a more and more tangible reality.

This month of August is about rebellion against false perceptions. Chaos is  the forerunner of a new reality found in asserting our independence from conditionings that have blinded us to our light. Now is the time when  each one of us needs to start shining again in the brilliance of our  truth.

#5And some words of wisdom from Abraham…

When you begin to understand Law of Attraction, and you understand that which is like unto itself is drawn, then it is easier and easier to understand that you are offering a signal, and the entire Universe responds. And when you finally get that, and you begin to exercise some deliberate control about the signal that you offer, then it really begins to be fun, because then you recognize that nothing happens outside of your creative control. There are no things that happen by chance or by circumstance. There is nothing that is happening because of something you vibrated a long time ago or in a past life. It is not about what you were born into. It is only about what you are, right now, in this red hot fresh.”— Abraham

Tons of replays available–Jo Dunning, Mary A. Hall, Michael Beckwith, and more!


TIPS FOR TODAY:

Many teleseminar hosts are making the replays available again (so I guess these would actually be re-replays :-)) of some of their most popular guests, so here’s your chance to catch some you might have missed previously…

#1 – Adoley Odunton at the Wellness Revolution  is making Jo Dunning’s interview, as well as some others, available again for a limited time. Here’s what she had to say in recapping Jo’s presentation on how to stop worry (great!)…

How do you stop worrying when you have cancer or some other health
challenge or when your life is falling apart?

Healer and Spiritual Teacher, Jo Dunning as usual was exceptional in
helping us to deal with the worry that plagues so many of our lives.
She gave us practical tools to stop worry:

1. Stay present in the moment

2.  Do a single task, not multi-task and stay focused on it

3.  Trust that everything is working out and you are moving

4. Practice Gratitude

5. Action – stay alert to insights that guide us into next step and take action

Jo invited us to practice three things as we witnessed negative events in
the world.  Love Compassion and Hold the Vision.  This is an invitation for us to evolve our consciousness.  Instead of judging, we have compassion for the situation or individuals concerned.  We can also apply the same process towards ourselves as we deal with challenges in our own lives.

As always Jo did energy work that was available throughout the call and
it is available as you are listen to the recording.  Take the opportunity to
listen to it several times.

Healing With the Masters

And if you haven’t signed up for the new season of Living Energy Secrets (mentioned in a previous post), which started just a few days ago, I recommend that, as well.

And now, here’s shamanic astrologer Tami Brunk’s astrological update for the month of September…Week of September 1 to 4

Mars and Venus conjunct Spica-Claiming the Harvest

This Spica aspect follows the dance between Mars, Venus, and Saturn through the month of August in the sign of Libra. Now we are invited to celebrate and acknowledge the profound work we have been doing in the realm of equal, conscious, nonheirarchical relationships-and we have been working so hard in this area over the past month!

All our buttons have been pushed, we have revisited old patterns of co-dependency and control. It can be helpful to understand that some of these patterns are generations old–so the amount of energetic clearing cannot be overstated. If we have felt tired, drained, unable to focus, this is in large part because of the vital work we have been doing under the surface.

On the conscious level, many of us have been coming into greater acknowledgment of the need to claim full responsibily for our own lives, rather than giving the power to someone else. Through this process of self-claiming, we accomplish the sacred marriage between our dual aspects, our inner masculine and feminine. It is only when we acknowledge our sovereignty and personal power that we can enter fully into intimacy with others.
Week of September 5 to 11

The New Moon in Virgo occurs at about 4:30 am MST Wednesday September 8. The ceremonial period to observe this event spans from Monday evening to the appearance of the tiny crescent moon on Thursday or Friday the 9th-10th. The period where the moon is no longer visible is the most powerful time to create a quiet space to set our intentions. The appearance of the crescent moon signals a good time to speak our intentions aloud and begin actively moving toward them.With the New Moon occurring in Virgo at the same time Mercury is still traveling retrograde through Virgo, it’s helpful to look at what Virgo, as an astrological sign, is about. At the present Turning of the Ages, Virgo is the sign most closely associated with Gaia, or the living Earth. The human embodiment of Virgo is the Priest or Priestess-the one fully dedicated to doing his or her sacred work-which has historically been centered on the ceremonies that kept humanity in balance with the cycles and systems of the Earth.

Virgo is impersonal, and has in the past been expressed as the Renunciate; one who remains apart from the middle world pleasures and pains of marriage, family, childrearing: so that they can fully focus their energies into their vital work-which serves All.

So this September lunar cycle can be understood as a time to take some breathing room from relationship focus in order to attend to our sacred work. For some of us, this means bringing great presence, kindness, and humor into our workplace, without the content of the job itself being of great importance. For us, we may want to cultivate a stronger spiritual practice to help us rise to our full capacity as healers and transformers.

Others have work of great specificity that we long to put our full energy into-whether we are artists or doctors or farmers or astrologers or what have you. We must allow ourselves the time and focus to deepen our skills and knowledge–and to design or strengthen a context where we can provide for our financial needs while practicing our craft. Many others of us are in an in-between place, unsure of what our sacred work is-we, too, need time and space to discover our soul passions.

On this New Moon, it can be good to claim our inner renunciate and withdraw from too much social and relationship responsibility so as to feed our inner well and work steadily to accomplish-or discover!–our most cherished goals and dreams. We will be powerfully assisted as we ask for guidance in designing our work so that it contributes to a healthy planet and greater human alignment with Earth cycles.

Venus in Scorpio and Jupiter in Pisces

Later Wednesday morning, Venus enters the sign of Scorpio, signaling a shift in the feminine energies at play for the remainder of the month. The Scorpio Goddess can be understood as the Sorceress or Shaman; one who knows who she is, has full awareness and healthy control of her emotions and instincts. She powerfully manifests what she desires, because she knows how to access and powerfully channel life force (creative/sexual) energy.

We are invited to engage Virgo’s capacity for grounded, spirit-guided work with Scorpio’s intensity and full focus. When we do so, we will be astonished by what we can accomplish. Also on Wednesday, retrograding Jupiter moves back into Pisces, joining Uranus in this sign. Jupiter will remain in Pisces until the end of January, when it moves back into Aries. With Jupiter again in the sign of Pisces, we are invited to take some time out each day for prayer, meditation, or otherwise contacting the Divine Presence for guidance and nurturance along our path.

Moon Activates Spica Conjunction-the Goddess Reclaims her Connection to Spirit

Friday the 10th look to the West just after sunset to see the crescent Moon join Venus, Mars, and Spica–all within 6 degrees of each other. The moon is conjunct Mars near midnight and conjunct Venus just before sunrise. As the celestial body closest to and most intimate with the Earth, the Moon can be understood to transmit the energies of the planets or stars it is aspecting. As both Venus and Mars prepare to move into the sign of Scorpio, we can know that the work we have done to strengthen ourselves and our relationships will help us to move more fully into our work. 

The Moon Venus conjunction specifically is also very important, as it represents the final Moon-Venus conjunction of Venus’s most recent synodic cycle-in the sign of Aries–which began on April 4, 2009, and ends November 4, 2010. Over the course of its 1 ½ year cycle, the Moon joins up with Venus 7-8 times in the morning sky before disappearing in the Underworld-a period of time where it is within 10 degrees of the Sun. Then Venus rises in the evening sky, and once again experiences 7-8 encounters with the Moon.

The ancient Sumerians have a story about the “Descent of the Goddess” that describes this journey. As the Sun Goddess Inanna (which means Venus) descends into the Underworld (her morning star journey) she passes 7 gates and releases an item of clothing at each gate. When she ascends from the Underworld, she passes again through these gates and reclaims her personal items.

Shamanic Astrology holds the insight that each of the Gates (represented by the Moon conjunctions) can be understood as a Chakra. Today, the Divine Feminine passes through the 7th gate, reclaiming her crown-or her connection to the Divine through her crown chakra. Clearly, with the activation of Spica, the Virgo New Moon Cycle, and later in the month a Moon conjunction to the Pleiades, or 7 Sisters star cluster, the Divine Feminine is profoundly activated within and without.

September 12 to 18Mercury and Pluto Station Direct

When it stations direct, Mercury is within 6 degrees of Regulus, a bright star known as the “heart of the lion” within the Lion constellation. The star and planet are visible close to each other in Monday’s early morning sky. Regulus has been understood as assisting us in moving into “heart focused” action. So as we move back into our flow of busy and full lives, it is so helpful to remember to stay centered in our hearts.

Pluto stations direct on Tuesday the 14th at 2 Capricorn 47. Over the next few months Pluto will be moving direct through Capricorn until it begins its annual retrograde cycle on April 9 at 7 Capricorn 30. This direct station can be understood as Pluto’s final contribution to the T-square energies at work in the early Cardinal, or Householder signs of Capricorn, Cancer, Libra, and Aries. It will remain nearly stationary for the next couple of weeks-thus strongly holding the tension in its position in the T-Square.

Mars in Scorpio–Full Access to Life Force Energy

Also on Tuesday, Mars moves into Scorpio, following Venus’s entrance into that sign last week. As with Venus, we now have access to the full life force energy possessed by Scorpio-especially potent as we align our personal goals in service to the well-being of the Earth (Virgo) and an awareness of our fundamental connections to all other life forms on this planet (Pisces).

Jupiter and Uranus Major Activation

Uranus and Jupiter both have a tremendous impact in mid to late September. This week we feel the building intensity as both planets approach “perigee”–the point in their cycle where they are closest to the Earth. The exact date of this position for both will be Monday the 20th. They will contribute a great deal of energy to the Aries Full Moon and Equinox occuring next week-as they oppose the sun the day prior, and conjunct the Moon day of.

Jupiter and Uranus are conjunct this Saturday the 18th-the second aspect since the first on June 8. The last conjunction will be January 24 of 2011. In the first conjunction last June, both planets were in Aries-which added to the volatile and high intensity of this aspect. Now both retrograding planets are moving back through the sign of Pisces, which adds a much needed softening to the intensity and high energy. Still, the archetypal energies of the planets themselves (Uranus and Jupiter) are dominant.

With Uranus highlighted, we can expect unpredictable, sudden events on the world stage, designed to help humanity break old habits and addictions in order to evolve in concert with the Turning of the Ages. Innovation, creativity, and breakthroughs in the realm of science, technology, and new thought are all potential outcomes. Jupiter expands all of this and can add a dimension of exuberance and optimism to the dynamic.

It is a good idea to practice grounding and quieting ourselves as we begin our days-as well as providing ourselves with physical outlets to blow off steam–so that we can utilize this gift of energy in a focused and productive way-rather than letting it scatter our efforts or overwhelm and our systems, leading to an excess of aggression, distress, or anxiety. This conjunction is a gift, if we utilize it appropriately.

September 19 to 25Autumn Equinox and Full Moon in Aries

As if last week wasn’t powerful enough-this week we experience the Equinox nearly exact with a Full Harvest Moon in Aries, conjunct Uranus and Jupiter, which are at their closest point to the Earth. Add to that the fact that the Sun squares Pluto on Saturday-which is still in a power stance, having just stationed direct, and is nearly at a stand still. It’s clear to see that the T-Square is in fact very much activated and intensified at this time-even though this month we do not have the “super aspects” of Uranus opposite Saturn and Saturn square Pluto.

The Fall Equinox occurs on Wednesday, September 22. It is followed by the Full Harvest Moon in Aries, exact at 3:17 am Thursday morning. The near-full Moon can be seen at around midnight on Wednesday at the “top of the sky” near conjunction with Jupiter (and invisible Uranus). The Aries/Libra dynamic now activated by the Full Moon is a joyful invitation-energized by Jupiter and Uranus-to take decisive, clear, and committed action toward the fruition of our goals and dreams, in concert with others.

We are finding the balance between acting autonomously and independently and seeking collaboration with others. We are learning that there is no prescribed path to follow at the Turning of the Ages-we must carve it ourselves. We must be willing to make mistakes, to stumble, and to try new approaches as we make our way through the world.

As we come into our own as agents of our own destiny-and world changers in our own right, Aries says-take risks! Be the pioneer and inventor you were born to be! Uranus and Jupiter urge us to embody our uniqueness and know we are supremely blessed as we do so.

The Autumn Equinox is a time of preparation for the winter months to come. It is a time of balance between dark and light, where the air offers the hint of crispness, and we see the beautiful trees beginning to turn colors in thier own process of release. As with the recent activation of Spica, we are invited to claim and celebrate what we have learned, created, and brought into the world over the past year. What do we wish to carry with us through the winter months to sustain us? What will we release and return to Source?

We have gained so much wisdom, clarity, and strength over these past months. It is important to celebrate and own this! So as we take focused action toward the lives and the renewed world our hearts say is oh-so-possible, we can make use of the foundation we have been building over the past year.

Sun Square Pluto–a Torch in the Darkness

On Saturday, the Sun squares Pluto, bringing new light and insight to the Pluto in Capricorn dynamic we have been experiencing since 2008. Capricorn is about the human-made rules, institutions, and structures that support a society and culture. Pluto represents the regenerative processes of the Underworld-the death and rebirth cycles that are part of Earth existance. Interestingly, the “official” begin date for our current recession has been set at December 2007–immediately preceding Pluto’s entrance into the sign of Capricorn in January 2008.

Since that time we have seen our global financial institutions falter precariously. We have seen that our political institutions’ adherence to “business as usual” is exacerbating, not addresssing our current societal and planetary crises. The Sun squaring Pluto can be seen as a “torch” in the present darkness, offering a glimpse into the heart of the disintegration process modern human societies are facing, and insight into how we can best engage with this process.

To the degree that we can accept that the changes we are experiencing are in service to humanity’s evolution and the birth of a new era, we will be empowered to act decisively in those areas where we DO have some control (Aries)–in collaboration with others (Libra). The Uranus Jupiter connection suggests that we are poised at the brink of tremendous evolutionary change. With Pisces in the picture, again, we are reminded of the power of prayer and seeking spiritual guidance on this journey.

September 26 to 31Moon in the Sacred Hoop conjunct the PleiadesTonight at about 10:00 pm we can see the waning near-full Moon about 1.5 degrees S.S.W. of the Pleiades. This will be the last of a series of conjunctions occurring since last October and the Moon will not join the Pleiades again until 2023. As it passes this mythic, beautiful star cluster, the Moon moves into a portion of the sky know to the Lakota as the “Sacred Hoop,” or Great Shining Circle.” This circle of stars is created by Procyon, Sirius, Rigel, the Pleiades, Capella, Castor, and Pollux. It holds the Galactic Cross at the Center of the circle-formed by an intersection of the Milky Way Band and the ecliptic plane.Like all stars and constellations, the Pleiades have represented different things to different cultures across time and geography. A common theme–from Pre-Columbian Central America to Ancient Greece to Northern Native America–holds that they are a group of sisters, chased by a warrior (Orion), young men, a bear… So, like the Virgin Constellation, they have represented women’s mysteries to many cultures.

With the Moon passing through the Sacred Hoop tonight, and transmitting the mysteries of the Seven Sisters, it is a powerful time for women to come together and speak their dreams, supporting each other in leading the way toward a new world culture. For men, I see the recurring theme of the “chase” of these women as symbolizing the incessant longing within the masculine for its other half in the feminine. I encourage you to court and feed your inner feminine aspects-your connection to the earth, your ability to emotionally nurture yourself, your capacity to recieve.

Sun conjunct Saturn–Continuing to Refine Relationships

On Thursday, September 30, the Sun conjuncts Saturn. The Sun joining Saturn can be understood as assisting to bring forward the new expressions of healthy human relationships-and bringing new light and insight to the process. While the intensity of August’s Venus Mars dance with Saturn in Libra has ended and we are well served to have taken a break to integrate and acknowledge our relationship work, it will continue to be a prominent undercurrent for as long as Saturn is in the sign of Libra-until October of 2012-another 2 years.

And this is a good thing. As with so much else, we cannot rush through and be “done with” these processes of change and transformation. We can take this time to peel back many layers of accumulated roles and barriers to our hearts and our authenticity.

We can continue to deepen the process of the sacred marriage-fully accepting and integrating all aspects of ourselves; as well as actively practicing ways of relating that equally honor ourselves and others. For now, let’s honor and acknowledge the new levels of awareness and empowerment we’ve currently achieved as individuals and as an interconnected global family.

PICK OF THE DAY:

Don’t mean to inundate you with astrology stuff, but these are such special times, astrologically and spiritually speaking, that I feel there is great benefit and insight to be gained from understanding the energies and emphasis of the current cosmic events. I found this article featured at Tarot.com about the importance of how the planets are lined up sequentially added a whole new dimension to my overview of what’s going on… 

Neptune, Chiron and Uranus Align…What’s next in line?

August 5th, 2010 by A.T. Mann

I have talked recently about the long-term conjunction of Neptune and Chiron. Neptune is the spiritual, the realm of dreams and illusion, boundlessness, lack of boundaries, and on a more material level, drugs and oil. Chiron signifies a wound we carry, and its transit shows collective wounds and their emotional and psychic impact on us. Chiron is also the stories we tell, which are the ways that we transmit what is really going on within us, particularly those stories that touch deeper areas where we are wounded, uncomfortable, or just out of touch.

When these two planets come together, they create a strange complex of influences. On the one hand they show our extreme openness and vulnerability to psychic influences. We have all noticed that those who are particularly sensitive psychically or emotionally have been deeply affected by the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. It is as though the suffocation of the sea life is something that we feel directly, personally, and take on ourselves. A similar phenomenon happened after 9/11, when many sensitives picked up the sadness and frustration of the many souls that died so suddenly that they could not make peace with themselves before the tragedy. When we are so sensitive, it is doubly important if not essential to have the means of protecting our deeper self from environmental and world events. Although in saying that, it is ultimately a good thing as it forces those situations to our attention and places a higher priority on them in our minds, which can then lead to changes in policy in those who supposedly “govern” us. At the very least, it makes such situations untenable and brings us to change our minds and begin to aid in the necessary changes that our world so badly needs.

Adding to this is another component. When many planets align in a t-square as they currently do in the early degrees of cardinal signs (Aries, Libra and Capricorn), it is not only the two-planet aspects that are significant, but also the sequence of influences. In the current situation, the sequence is Neptune (27 Aquarius), Chiron (29 Chiron), Uranus (0 Aries), Saturn (1 Libra), and Jupiter and Pluto (3 Aries and Capricorn). This obviously compounds the situation and makes any one of the components seem almost insignificant by comparison.

The way such sequences work is important because every day the diurnal ASC passes all 360 degrees and therefore “hits” this t-square four times a day. The moon passes the square and opposition points four times each month, and the sun will also trigger it over a six month period. So it is essential that we understand the sequential dynamics of such a string of influences.

If Neptune and Chiron alone are the sense of the clash of idealism with the realities of the wounds we are incurring these days, this in itself is a shock to our system. However, the baton then passes to Uranus in Aries, which brings impulsive actions, the need for rapid change of attitudes, impatience, and particularly, technical elements to the equation. Nowadays the “new media” allow information to disseminate instantly around the entire world, and the sensitivity of Neptune/Chiron therefore makes a much more powerful impact on us all. WE ALL FEEL THE PAIN.

Saturn following at 1 Libra brings the realization that institutions (like our government, or BP) are the root and core of the problem, and they are extremely reluctant to change, or conversely (or perversely!) are unwilling to change their essential nature. You can feel this in the disenchantment with Barack Obama, who promised fundamental change, only to discover that such change is resisted by Republicans, but also almost everyone else with vested influence in our current world. Saturn puts the brakes on this difficult situation and asks for fundamental breakthroughs in institutions. It creates new boundaries.

Jupiter wants expansion and freedom, and Saturn/Jupiter ask for patience and time in order to manifest the necessary changes. It brings a note of optimism to the equation, although Jupiter passes through quite quickly and means that we must act now.

Pluto pulls up the rear and brings us the deeper and more permanent message: in order to change, the entire edifice must virtually “die” to its former ways, and be reborn to a newer, more just and righteous order. While this is asking a lot, it does mean that, in Pluto’s unique ways, if we don’t embrace the need for fundamental change, things will happen that will force us to change in ways that we can’t even imagine.

As Pluto is the last in line and also the slowest, over the next few years, we will see all of these planets waltz past its transformative lens and bring massive change, whether or not we want it to happen.
