INITIAL OBSERVATIONS OF JUPITER-IN-SAGITTARIUS

Sagittarius_-_Cicero's_Aratus_(mid_11th_C),_f.37_-_BL_Cotton_MS_Tiberius_B_V

 

Jupiter in Sagittarius is already bringing us intense, expansive and polarized energy. I was wondering why the Universe saw fit to throw in a Mercury Retrograde in Sagittarius in the middle of November – just as everything appeared to be taking off.

Recent events have made that clear.

Let’s look at what Jupiter in Sagittarius has promised us.

Growth, Expansion, Direction.

That can be a very positive, enjoyable thing.

It can also be a very disturbing thing.

Whilst this alignment can bring that much-needed feel-good boost we’ve all been craving, it can prop up false pedestals and polarize divisions in truth and ideology even further.

It’s one thing to grow, and it’s another thing to grow in a way that is going to cause harm to others – especially when guided by extreme beliefs.

Truth be told, I didn’t like the energy I was sensing around the exact time of the shift – and in the build-up to it. What I was feeling wasn’t the party vibe that I wanted to feel. Especially after such a brutal Jupiter-in-Scorpio transit.

As I’ve been suggesting to you – I just focused on keeping safe, clear space.

********

I then heard about the massive fires (that have destroyed 1000 structures so far) and the mass shooting in California (13 dead, more injured).

Please pray for all those affected, if that resonates with your belief system.

********

What’s happening is not surprising, given the astrology of California’s political chart – Pluto & Uranus at 29 Aries, Jupiter at 29 Virgo. All of that got activated within the past few days!

For the rest of us, it’s a powerful reminder:

We need more time with Sagittarius before leaping ahead.

We need to focus more so on anchoring new energies in ways that allow conflict to be resolved peacefully.

We need to learn how to create safe spaces – because you can be sure that many are going to try to step into the expansion that Jupiter creates.

And not all of them are going to be aligned.

Some will be though … And you’re going to have to use your discernment to know which is which.

I am looking further into what Jupiter is going to be bringing us in this transit. Stay tuned.

And no, it’s not all going to be gloom and doom. Stay grounded, stay humble – and you’ll find a lot of positive growth as well.

Now if you are riding and coasting through with this energy – enjoy it!

But at the same time, remember to honor others who are at a different place and experience in their process.

It doesn’t mean that one is evolved and the other isn’t. It just means that we all work out different astrological alignments and karmic experiences differently.

Which brings me to a key lesson (and test) Jupiter-in-Sagittarius brings:

Judge Not.

HANG ON … THE PLANETS AREN´T DONE YET!!! (November 2018)

 

Whilst the energies are indeed shifting, it´s wise not to jump the gun. Give things a little more time to settle before making huge decisions.

With Jupiter at 29 Scorpio, Uranus at 29 Aries, True North Node at 29 Cancer, Chiron at 28 Pisces – we´re being bombarded with waves of cosmic energy. Their direction isn´t crystal clear yet.

And with Jupiter bound to enter Sagittarius within the next 10 hours, it´s wise to give a little bit of breathing room before the next big leap.

Moreover, we are seeing other shifts happening, focused 8-10 days from now (Nov 15-17).

Think of the next week as prep time for the following:

Shifting of the Nodes

Some astrologers are celebrating the shifting of the Nodes now. But it´s wise to remember that there are two calculation methods to them: True and Mean (Average) Nodes.

The True nodes have indeed shifted, but the Mean nodes haven´t. They´ll need another week to settle into Cancer-Capricorn. I do spend a little time on explaining what that shift looks like.

Mars will FINALLY exit Aquarius, and enter Pisces.

Venus Retrograde ends

Mercury Retrograde begins

This will alter the character or nature of the energy we´re sensing and working with now.

Take home message:

Give the energies a little time to settle.

Focus on maintaining a clear energetic space, intent and focus over the next week.

Don´t jump the gun just yet!

We will have further shifts occur over the next few months. And these will be generation-defining, ground-breaking milestones in consciousness…

But the key is to take it one phase at a time.

Breathe … and let the next chapter unfold.

SCORPIO MOON, GRAND FIXED CROSS REACTIVATED, NEW MOON WITH JUPITER AT 29 SCORPIO AND URANUS AT 29 ARIES!!

45447381_2203482579974781_8000420222903255040_n

Moon in Scorpio activates the Grand Fixed Cross with Uranus-in-Taurus, North Node in Leo, South Node in Aquarius!
This is going to be bringing up themes we saw in early September, late October and (again) in early December 2018. This follows Venus’ transit, retrograde and upcoming return through Scorpio.

For some, the Scorpio Moon can switch on or trigger, a powerful wave of healing and regeneration – and for others, it will be pain. Sometimes both.

Look at the shadow that presents itself to you and face it with courage and love. That’s the ideal.

At the very least, don’t try to bury your emotions or pretend that they do not exist. Carry whatever it is that you are feeling, knowing that you can and will release it when its the right time.

Scorpio is intense, passionate and all-or-nothing.

Those who are experiencing waves of grief may want to diffuse or dilute thyme essential oil. Massage it over the heart if you’re not too sensitive to its potency.

Chrysocolla and turquoise are gemstones that come to mind.
Just be mindful that old pains and triggers can place us back into old energetic patterns. Choose different options or activities for coping and moving through those old temptations.

In this way you shift the energy, and ultimately move towards the breaking of unhealthy cycles.

Be mindful that not everything that anyone says is about you – even if they think it is. Games of projection are rife in the skies and people are more likely to be triggered and wanting to lash out.

This does not mean you have to be a punching bag. Side-step the drama.

You’ve got your own stuff to process.

Ride the wave of energy into the Scorpio New Moon (16:01 UTC, Nov 7th 2018) – which is just shy of 24 hours from now.

As this New Moon is at 15 degrees Scorpio, it presents us with an opportunity to change more enmeshed dynamics of power and control. It is even more powerful because Jupiter is already at 29 Scorpio and Uranus will retrograde to 29 Aries (and out of Taurus) before the New Moon goes exact.

So change, change, change, and TRANSFORMATION!

Not everyone will appreciate you rocking the boat, so its best to move into this with as much grace as possible. Ideally.

Though know that great changes tend to be messy processes, at least for the collective phase or state of evolution we are in.

Seek to take back control of your own processes, and emotions in ways that are appropriate. Focus on finding your own sense of sovereignty and the processes that regenerate your energy from within.

Invest in people, ideas, relationships and endeavors the empower you (and others) in life-affirming ways!

As opposed to energetic contracts that require you to grind yourself up for another – in the name of the greater good.

Yeah that’s got to stop.

If doing deep spiritual work, I’d still advise waiting till Jupiter has had a chance to enter Sagittarius. That’s November 8th.

Sessions with me resume on November 9th, so be prepared

And don’t forget – we’re going to see even more shifting in November!

Blessings and Love,

p.s. – Happy Deepawali / Diwali to all those who celebrate it! This Pumpkin Pillayar (Ganesh) is my 2nd carving. I’m combining a few things together to honor a departed ancestor. Hindus make a padayal (ancestral offering) to them each year on Deepavali Eve. Northerners and Southerners in India differ as to which date is taken. There are regional variations that arise from different socio-historical and cultural understandings.

In any case, Happy Deepavali!

Not All That Shimmers is Sacred: The Teachings of ´The False Light´

butterfly-3499055_1920

 

As we navigate the energies of the day, be aware of The False Light.

It is far more insidious, and dangerous than we call ´The Dark´.

In fact, there is a profound degree of healing, rest and sanctuary we can find in that which is hidden. But it does come with its own baggage (like all else).

You will encounter many within the healing and spiritual disciplines who truly believe that they are in alignment – but who channel very different frequencies and energies, often the polar opposite to the claims they make.

They also tend to be surrounded by people who absolutely believe what they are told and would rather have some external force running through them, than to actually sit with themselves.

This comes from a profound sense of disconnection and a lack of faith in and appreciation of the unique expression of the Self. As the Self is an expression of The Sacred.

Up to a certain point, a person who is ´jacked´ in this way cannot differentiate between Source energy – and clones of the same.

Just because something shimmers, or uses the language of the Light does not automatically mean it is benevolent or positive in any way.

It can be, but it an equally be the vessel of something very, very, different.

This is an unpopular teaching, but a true one.

Knowing the difference between that which is truly sacred – and that which pretends to be – is crucial.

Especially in a time where projection is predominant.

Listen to your body´s instincts and the red flags it brings up when you encounter teachers, energies or teachings that you feel are not aligned.

Sometimes this is an accurate reflection of them, and sometimes it is projection on your part.

It is worth investigating the two.

By the same token, take a moment and pause to see when you may be heading headfirst towards something that seems ´good´, ´aligned´, ´golden´ and ´light-filled´. Especially if that is the only rhetoric that is used.

It may be exactly what it feels like.

Then again it may be the Ego that´s doing the feeling – and seeing exactly what it wants to see.

Sometimes things are a little murkier. You may find a teacher with true knowledge, but that knowledge may be wrapped up in their own egoic games of control.

Be especially aware if someone is only trying to project an image of lightness, ascension, transcendence, etc. The Universe is not one-dimensional.

One way you can tell is to see the way they stake claims or ownership of knowledge.

That doesn´t refer to a copyright or a trademark, or referencing others´ work in a respectful manner. It is perfectly okay to say that one has channeled the Divine essence in a particular way that is unique to themselves. It is respectful to honor their work for what it is.

One person reading this article raised the issue of why I use a copyright at the end of my post. And I feel it is important to clarify that point. Whilst the words and expressions are mine, the essence behind them is not. It comes from Source.

If I cannot say that the configuration of the words I utter or string together are a unique expression of my creative, sovereign, being – then I cannot make any claim at all.

Be it to my body, my integrity, my right to exist, my right to defend myself, or to protect my work. As with all things – there is a balance to be found, and caution in the excess.

I hope this clarifies my thoughts on the matter.

It is another thing to say that ONLY such-and-such teacher has the privileged keys, or right to claim Knowledge itself. This strips away the power of ´students´ to find that knowledge for themselves. It becomes something that only the teacher has access to.

That in itself becomes a different kind of hook. Even through the ´esoteric knowledge´ referenced is really something that a lot of people do already know. It becomes more about power and energy, and ways to keep the student entrapped.

Such teachers tend to be very dogmatic about what they think they know – and dismissive, covertly hostile, abusive and/or competitive with others who have acquired/remembered similar knowledge.

(Bear in mind though, that this is a projection that competent teachers do get when faced with very insecure people out to prove a point. Really tune in before making such a claim.)

I´ve seen a few people play into such control dramas with their followers/students/audiences – in full confidence that they are Keepers of the Light, Golden Ascended Masters, Goddesses/Priestesses, Gods/Priests, Grandmaster Healers, etc. They may claim knowledge and use of healing modalities and spiritual divinatory methods – but actually end up channeling some very toxic, tricksy stuff.

I take the same approach to organized religion. A space isn´t sacred because someone uses the name of a Deity or has a statue in place or has a piece of paper saying they know x-y-and-z, or does a ritual prescribed by some authority:

It´s all about the energy that is actually being channeled.

And I have found some of the most corrupt energies hiding in the guise of the most illuminated and sacred.

Then again, I´ve also met people who are the real deal – sometimes with the title, temple, ritual, following, and sometimes without. You really can´t make a generalization on that basis.

And I am sure a lot of you have had the same mixed bag of experiences.

Sometimes the teacher is perfectly fine, and it is your own mirrors and buttons that get triggered. It´s hard to see clearly when that happens.

And that´s why I thought about this piece for months before writing it. Spirit finally said Today, so I did.

That being said, there are more and more people who truly embody that radiant Solar-Life Force and who are exactly who they say they are. And others see it.

Most of them are probably under the age of 10.

They are the greatest Teachers – and – Students. Realizing that dichotomy is a false one to begin with.

They are confident and proud, humble and teachable.

They honor the effort they take to bring something into the world, knowing that others who are aligned will respect this precious expression of life-force.

It is not something to seek to duplicate or deny a person from being- but something to be inspired by.

It is not something to use as a means of control, but rather liberation.

A Teacher who is aligned will inspire you to find the most authentic expression of yourself.

That´s not always a cuddly, happy process – but it is real.

If you can find a teacher like that, you´re lucky. Honor their energy and work – and your own – as you journey together into this vastly complex Multi-Verse.

Enjoy the rest of your day or night.

Blessings,

Grand Fixed Nodal Cross – Energy Re-Set – The Only Constant Is Change! (w. Venus, Uranus, Nodes)

 

Guidance for the current Grand Fixed Nodal Cross with Venus Retrograde at 0 Scorpio, Uranus Retrograde at 0 Taurus, the North Node at 0 Leo and South Node at 0 Aquarius.

The nature of this Cross will change on Halloween, as Venus Retrograde backs into Libra. We can expect this intensity to continue till November 2nd (at least).

Either way, the fact that it´s going down at 0 degrees of each Fixed Sign allows us to re-set patterns we never thought we could!

Remember that further, more expansive, shifts occur in November. The kind of energy we face now is one that allows us to make dramatic changes, beginnings and endings to patterns of energy, ideology, material investment, emotional commitment, sexual expression, creative embodiment and body-and-Earth awareness at this time. (To name a few)

It can be a profoundly transformative alignment, but bear in mind that firm grounding is required to make the most of this energy. For many of you, the lessons will come through relationship dynamics.

Look at where, how, why, when your energy goes – and how you receive from others. This will reveal profound truths to you of the nature of yourself – and what you do need to do to further your own growth and expansion.

If you´re wondering which route to take, take the one that allows you to access your most authentic and creative state of being. That makes you feel ´full of yourself´ (and the Universe) in the best way possible.

In this way, we make joy and abundance possible for others. Beginning with the Self.

There are many challenges and opportunities for growth with this energy. Navigate as well as you can.

Many of the themes you´re working on now will be revisited in the first week of December 2018 as Venus re-turns to Scorpio.

Blessings,

PS – Sharing a little bit of what makes me happy here. Finally carved my first Halloween pumpkin, in honor of Jack Skellington from Nightmare Before Christmas (which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year). I´m so very happy with the way it turned out! I decided against using a stencil or template and just went freehand, willing to accept whatever the result may have been. It paid off.

Intense Energies over the Next Week! & A Powerful Tool for Space Clearing

Oct 27, 2018: Mars (18 Aquarius) squares Persephone (18 Scorpio) and Atlantis (19 Scorpio).

This alignment tends to bring out past-life and other dynamics that center upon karmic entrapments, the loss of sovereignty, abuses of power and knowledge and devotion to false (i.e. misaligned and not-really-working-in-your-highest-or-deepest-good) powers.

Look back to October 18, 2018 when Mars also squared Atlantis and Persephone. This is a repeat on the same theme. Article: https://wp.me/p4OUNS-2zH

Those who are not feeling the intensity of this – celebrate! – and those who do – practice a little extra self-care today.

In fact, you may want to keep at a more disciplined routine of self-care in general, given upcoming alignments. Especially over the next week!

And remember that this is Scorpio Season, with Jupiter, Uranus and the North & South Node, Venus Retrograde all about to change signs within the next few weeks! Not to mention the begin of Mercury retrograde as well! And the Grand Fixed Cross with Venus, N. Node, S. Node and Uranus that´s dominating the skies in the week ahead!

Article: Prepare for the Changing of the Guard – https://wp.me/p4OUNS-2zN

There´s just A LOT going on. And it´s even more important than before to practice self-care and do your best to identify, and move away from old patterns.

Take some time out to meditate, or work with mantras that protect you and re-energize your space and being.

This is less about you as a person, and more about the collective sorting through its BS. Try not to get caught up in the crossfire – though that´s hard when you work with clients in a healing profession.

It´s not just about your personal ability to deal with the stuff that comes your way, but equally about the network of people whom you support – and who support you, the tools you use, the supplements you take, the diet you lead, the exercise you get – etc. etc. etc.

Every little bit counts and adds up, over time.

In light of this…

I´m sharing a space clearing / energizing chant by one of my teachers in India – Dr. B. P. Pranav. He initiates adepts into the many layers and esoteric uses of the Gayathri Mantra in Chennai, Tamil Nadu and Subang Jaya, Malaysia.

For more info on his work, you can check out his website. http://www.getcured.in

He´s pretty legit, and powerful at what he does. It´s been a privilege knowing him. He channels the energies of many benevolent forces as he chants. Chanting along with him or simply listening is a powerful way to work with this rendition of the mantra.

So here you go. Enjoy!

Recommended Usage: 1-3 times daily, especially over the next 7 days

SCORPIO SEASON BEGINS : PREPARE FOR THE CHANGING OF THE GUARD

IMG_20181023_074914629_HDR

The Sun has entered Scorpio.

The next 30 days are going to be about exploring the hidden domains of the subconscious, ancestral, underworld type energies and how they operate.

Think of it as the pit or cave in which the monsters we fear lurk amongst the treasures we seek. Games of projection sometimes confuse one for the other.

As Venus, Mercury, Atlantis, Persephone, Tantalus, Eurydice, Typhon, Apophis and Jupiter are also in Scorpio …

You can expect the inner excavation to burrow deeper still.

Remember that the work you do within ripples across generations before and after you, irrespective of whether you have physical, human children.

This applies to all beings.

Now, more than ever …

We are asked to be fearless.

To take that plunge and know the Universe will come through. It MUST and WILL.

Know also that we have a Full Moon in Taurus conjunct Uranus coming up in just a day’s time

Know that October 28-Nov 2 will see a Grand Fixed Cross in the skies with Venus Retrograde in Scorpio opposing Uranus Retrograde at 0 Taurus, squaring the Nodes in Leo and Aquarius.

Know that November 7-17 will see the changing of the guard. Jupiter will enter Sagittarius, Venus Retrograde will end, Mercury Retrograde will begin and the Nodes will shift into Cancer-Capricorn.

And I’ll speak more on this as we get closer to the dates, but you can always look at my previous videos and articles for context on http://www.bairaveebalasubramaniam.com

In a nutshell…

THIS is the time to shake old patterns loose, especially in matters of health, sexuality, finances, karmic contracts, ancestral patterns and relationships – in the intimate, personal and professional sense.

We do so to find new pathways to abundance and joy.

You are so supported by the wave of rising consciousness to do so, despite how heavy and hard the past appears to fight back.

And it will push back. Hard. Because the old paradigms of power are clinging on for dear life.

And sometimes they come wearing the guise of Love, Light and Spiritual Platitudes. And sometimes they are just flat out terrifying, sad or angry.

Please exercise discernment. There are a lot of projections and illusions out there. And sometimes that can muddy the waters to the point that you can’t tell which threats are real or imagined, which friends are foes, or what the best path for you is.

Sometimes these energies draw you to a false light, sometimes they drive you away from something that can and will heal.

Remember to stay aware. And not let others determine your perceptions.

Whilst a graceful allowance for the release and transmutation of the old is probably the ideal way to do this …

In reality, for a lot of people, it’s going to feel like the Rocky-Apollo fight.

Sometimes both. And there’s no judgement or holier-than-thou BS meant by that.

You will process this the way you can and need to.

I can tell you that this period has felt like the biggest fight of my life so far. But I make sure I am not alone in it.

Some people get triggered by the word ‘fight’ or ‘struggle’ – because oh it’s so 3D. Whilst flowery language sells better, I’d rather just call a spade a spade.

Remember that so much of the beauty we see in the Universe comes from the explosion of a dying star or a trillion chemical processes that slam sub-atomic particles together to release massive amounts of heat and light.

It ain’t a cute, sweet, comfortable process. If it’s good enough for the Universe… I don’t see why ‘spiritual transcendence’ should deny the alchemical process.

That being said, there is a case to be made for those addicted to the drama of that process. But I would say those are outliers. Most people in a fight through such times would choose peace if given an option.

But I’ve spent so much time on this in this piece because …. Naming the process empowers it. And too many hide away from facing that rawness.

We are all multidimensional beings, but remember we live in a materially manifest reality, and a planet in crisis.

Using a word that makes you feel better about it, doesn’t shift the energy of the pattern itself. Shifting the stigma around the use of the word does.

Remember that you choose your path and the rhetoric that works for you. Only you know the meaning and energy behind the words you say and the magic you weave.

Reach out to people who can support you, or at least point you in the right direction. And that they have the right skill-set, experience and grounding to do so.

Remember to Honor their time, energy and presence. No one is meant to be a tool or energy reserve for others. No matter how powerful they are.

Even so, do not allow others to project their paths onto what you need to do.

We are all people.

We can move through this. As sovereign beings, with support from others who can and want to help.

Belief is key in shifting the energy patterns that present themselves now.

So dig deep and find your faith.

If you are reading this chances are you’ve already found it or are close to.

Blessings

Many memories and energies from older times seek to revisit us.
Sometimes these reveal gifts forgotten, sometimes they help us get to the heart of old patterns.

Be mindful of heavy projection dynamics, victim-abuser paradigms and a blurring of the overall picture. It all comes down to who you´re doing this dance with.

Be mindful of the energies of entrapment, martyrdom and the (supposed) need to dissolve sovereignty – especially in the name of the Sacred or Mystical.

There is a fundamental difference between the spiritual idea of ego-dissolution and self-destruction. The former requires a strong foundation of self to begin with, the latter thrives on perceived weakness.

In this time, you can find gateways to healing and the resolution to outmoded karmic contracts and dependencies.

But the solution has to come from a rising wave of consciousness aligned with this evolutionary point, rather than one that simply re-hashes outmoded paradigms.

Meditation and spiritual work with Lemurian Crystals can go a long way at this time.

 

Golden Lemurians are especially recommended.

Atlantisite and Larimar can also go a long way in lifting denser energies to the light of consciousness.

Ammonite and/or Ammolite can help to ground the self and bring in multiple rays, or colours, of healing.

 

At the end of the day …

 

Allow that which is deeply hidden to reveal itself.

For that is when healing truly begins.

OCTOBER 11, 2018: SQUARING IT OFF (w. Sun-Pluto, Mars-Venus, Uranus opp. Mercury, etc.)

1024px-Chispas_(9484488673)

What a day! The Sun squares Pluto, Mars squares Venus, Uranus opposes Mercury, Mercury squares the Nodes … and so on. Of course there´s a lot more going on, but this is plenty to go with.

*
The Sun (18 Libra) – Pluto (18 Capricorn) asks us to stay vigilant. Pluto can bring about unexpected ´eruptions´ be it in matters of health, sexuality, finances, intimate partnerships, power dynamics, and so on.

Pluto can be a bit of a bully, but he does have some redeeming features. The same planet goes onto provide doorways for deep healing, rebirth and regeneration. In Capricorn, Pluto addresses institutions and people of power and influence as well as inherited burdens, gifts and generational anchors.

The Libra Sun asks us to remain objective and centered, but to know that drawing the line is absolutely okay (and essential) when faced with energies or people who are not acting in your best interests.

You can cut through the layers with the sword of detachment, but remember to get grounded and in a centered space before you try that one. Just gets messy otherwise.

*
Mars (10 Aquarius) squares Venus Retrograde (10 Scorpio). This alignment pits the archetypal pair in a tense, dynamic relationship. You´re going to be digging into Scorpio, a.k.a. Pluto´s themes, questioning the deeper power differentials that subject the Feminine to oppression, betrayal, manipulation, jealousy, projection and so on.

It´s a powerfully triggering alignment so remember to find safe space to process. Not everyone is able to hold that space despite feelings of goodwill so it is wiser to seek out those experienced enough to do so.

It´s also a good time to take inventory of your financial, energetic and emotional resources. Who is getting what, and how much? What are you receiving in turn? And does that create a self-sustaining, self-and-other-regenerating relationship?

Mars in Aquarius urges us to refine our understanding of what it is to hold the Masculine archetype. And as always – remember that Feminine and Masculine in this sense do not correspond neatly to societal constructions of gender and sexuality : They express themselves in all things.

Mars needs us to be willing to bring forth and work with the emerging energies or vibrations coming through from the Cosmos at this time. You may simply want to meditate on All-That-Is, or work with high frequency Lemurian Quartz Crystals (etc.) to anchor in new vibrations.

Remember that brute force is not required to make your way in the world, but a degree of assertiveness is. Be willing to see that others have differing points of view and there is little need to proclaim a single version of Truth!

Reaching out to friend groups, social networks and benign helpers or protectors at this time is very helpful. Remember that gifts cannot be demanded – if help flows with ease and grace, that´s great. If it is given or received with strings attached, think again.

If possible, engage in some charitable or altruistic work.

*
Mercury (2 Scorpio) opposes Uranus (1 Taurus), making today feel a little like Mercury Retrograde. Technology and communication tend to get a little wonky when alignments like these occur as there´s just so much information that needs to come through such channels.

Sometimes it´s a case of finding a new channel or vessel to communicate through. That might mean finding a new conceptual paradigm, switching e-platforms, allowing group connections that no longer align to dissolve, and so on.

Mercury encourages us to explore our fears and confront our shadow aspects. Our inner exploration gives way for newer channels of energy and information (Uranus) to come through. There is a powerful case for working on the consciousness of the body and its cellular memory, especially in rituals or modalities that work with the element of water.

Drink lots of water, pay attention to what comes up for you. Think of this as a phase of emotional, physical and spiritual detoxification. That clears the way for a healthier experience of life.

With Mercury squaring the North Node and South Node (1-2 Leo/Aquarius), the ideas we receive and transmit at this time can help us navigate our current karmic lessons.

Learning to let go of old forms of groupthink or convention can help us find fresh approaches to re-discovering a long-forgotten sense of joy, play and child-like grace. Which is a tremendously powerful act in itself, given how intense it is right now.

*
All in all, today´s alignments bring areas of discomfort or unease to the surface. You can look at this as a punishment or a bad day, or as a day where you have the opportunity to push past (what you thought were) your limits.

Friction and pressure aren´t always bad things. You need that to make a diamond from coal, or start a fire to keep you warm.

Though, do pay attention if you operate complex machinery or if you´re facing electrical issues of any kind.

The Lure of the Absolute Narrative in Astrological Work

abstract-1483987_1920

One of the hardest tasks in working with clients is to handle the lure of the absolute narrative.

A lot of astrologers believe that the natal chart and what it says is absolute. It is THE narrative or template of your life and there´s no going around it.

What I have found in practice is that this is truly not the case.

Through deep spiritual and psychological work, the natal chart often becomes the backdrop upon which a person´s journey can be tracked. And sometimes they end up moving out of that construct entirely.

It takes different methods to keep up with the evolutionary path of a person who is determined to discover the essence that goes beyond this life, and all others.

When one does not adapt their methods to the level of spiritual consciousness of the client, the client may feel as though the facilitator is not able to read them accurately.

It pays to stay open and willing to learn – especially when you work within a discipline that tends to make claims of absolute knowledge.

To be fair, a similar issue arises with psychologists, therapists, anyone we truly open up to in personal work. Sometimes we get the same issue with friends and family who – whilst may mean well – may not have the skills or perspective to really help you see what your innermost being is saying.

And no – your inner voice is not always something you automatically have access to. It often gets confused with others´ voices, narratives, ideals or maps of how things ´ought to be´. And sometimes it´s just Ego messing about.

Finding a good facilitator who can help you re-kindle your connection with your innermost insight is something that we all have to consider in our lives. Often, several times.

It becomes absolutely vital for whoever you are working with to avoid imposing their ideas or narratives onto the client. Even if they do have specialized knowledge on a particular subject.

On the other hand, it is as vital for the client to remember that no one knows everything. They speak from their perspective or discipline. Nothing should be taken as though it were written in stone, or gospel.

This brings me to the prerequisites of doing deep work with others, especially when they are in vulnerable states of being.

Avoid imposing a trajectory of events, or supposing you know exactly what they should and will be feeling. More often than not, that tends to be based on your experiences.

Whilst that can help some, it´s not always a guarantee.

Irrespective of whether you are a facilitator, client, or both:

If you are looking to help someone through something …

Being present is more than enough.

It is healing in itself to simply allow a person to be what they are at that given moment in time.

And – if you´re a facilitator – asking them to wait if your modality requires them to be in a different place – is a very ethical thing to do.

Now sometimes you´re still going to get a client who assumes they are ready and hears something they don´t want to. And reacts badly.

That, my friends, is still part of the work. You´re still doing your job.

All you can do is to sign-post it. And let adults make their own choices.

In my own work, I require all new clients to read and understand a document called ´Why What I Do Is Not For Everyone´: https://wp.me/p4OUNS-I9

Those considering working with me at this time, refer to it to understand what I do, and where you (ideally) need to be in your own process to benefit the most from it.
