THE MAGDALENE SPEAKS: Sun squared Neptune, opposed Magdalena + Grand Earth Trine (Pluto-Mercury-North Node / Nodal Kite)

Äthiopien_Grosses_Triptychon_Museum_Rietberg_EFA_15_img07 (1)

Blessings everyone. The Sun will square Neptune (12 Gemini-Pisces) at 2:41 UTC time, 2nd June 2016. As it does so, it activates a Mutable T-Square involving: Sun-squared-Neptune, Neptune-squared-Magdalena, and Sun-opposed-Magdalena. Long story short, over the next three days, we are likely to uncover messages, transmissions, dreams or spiritual activations that give us access to hidden, or arcane information surrounding the personage of the Magdalene – or – more broadly, the role of the Feminine in our understanding of Spirituality.

The Gemini Sun asks us to look at our pasts, to our earliest conscious understanding of what Spirituality meant, or could look and feel like. Many of us it hit the nail on the head as children, but were then forced to dis-acknowledge what we knew instinctively – in order to conform, or to be seen as normal. Some of us had to take a different path just so we would develop more fully before returning to the Wise Child. For not all Inner Children are in need of rescue or nurture – sometimes they just need to be heard and respected. (Or all of the above).

Neptune in Pisces brings back some of the older, innermost knowings – that we accessed spontaneously as children – and equally the trauma of having to suppress that knowledge (if present). For some, this will be generational trauma and/or karmic currents from a previous time. You may also find this playing out with siblings or other factors present strongly in your early childhood (Gemini).

The Gemini Sun is also conjunct Asbolus (11 Gemini), the seer or diviner to whom Truth is revealed in Nature, often through the flight patterns of Birds. A prominent theme for me in the past two days.

The Sun also opposes, whilst Neptune squares Magdalena (11 Sagittarius) – the asteroid representation of Mary Magdalene. Two days ago, I began reading a lovely anthology that presents academic and other research material from authors like Margaret Starbird, Elaine Pagels, Riane Eisler & Co. , presenting their different views on The Magdalene as reported in the Bible, the Gnostic Gospels, the Nag Hammadi and other texts from that era.

I am particularly taken by Margaret Starbird´s hypothesis that the Magdalene was in fact a dark-skinned Ethiopian pagan priestess skilled in the ancient arts (which included hieros gamos). She is said to have fled to France with her (dark-skinned) daughter Sarah. There is a celebration held (till this day) to Sara-la-Kali (i.e. The Dark or Black Sara) at Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer. There´s another interpretation of that legend, more commonly attributing Sarah as the child of the Magdalene´s servant who travelled with her after the Crucifixion.

I would not be surprised if this – that the Magdalene and her child were of African origin – turned out to be exactly the case and would like to investigate this further on a later pilgrimage. It would certainly add another layer to why and how the Magdalene was both ostracised, ridiculed and turned into a sexual object (a penitent one, no doubt – at least according to the Church between 591 and 1969 when they finally declared that the Magdalene was not a prostitute – though that begs other questions). There are of course other, more conventionally accepted narratives presented in the anthology. And as an introduction to the subject, it´s a broad overview that lets you make up your mind as to what you believe.

Deep in my gut there is a particular …. ring, or resonance with this theory. I would not be surprised – at all – with the simultaneous erasure of the Feminine – and her Blackness – from the narrative, iconography and representation of who-and-what deserved to be Sacred. Bear in mind that a lot of what we understand as Christianity today got popularized and began to be taken as the status quo centuries _after_ the Crucifixion – for largely political reasons. There´s of course a lot of speculation on all of this, but again, feel free to explore and discover what you understand as the Truth.

But, getting back to astrology – with the Sun and Neptune making strong aspects to Magdalena – as described above – we are asked to allow ourselves to (once again) access a deeper layer of consciousness surrounding the theme of the Sacred Feminine.

I would recommend the use of Rose, Frankincense essential oils (if you´re not allergic to them) and the Rhodochrosite gemstone in the process of re-covering knowledge we were told to cut ourselves away from, in earlier times.

Whilst all of this is ongoing, today (31st May 2016), we see the exact formation of a Grand Earth Trine involving Pluto (17 Capricorn), Mercury (17 Taurus) and the North Node (17 Virgo). We´ve felt this exact alignment before, in the 2nd week of April and May respectively – with Mercury doing it´s retrograde cha-cha in Taurus. This will be a time to make concrete your visions of the material world you wish to inhabit, and the value systems that structure them into being. Also a fantastic time to spend time in Nature and re-acquaint yourself with the consciousness of Gaia-Sophia.

In all honesty – rather than seeing this as a Grand Earth Trine – it´s actually a Nodal Kite, the backbone of which is the North Node in Virgo and South Node in Pisces. This focuses the power of the trine on the South Node. Essentially, we´re being asked to release older ways of attaching ourselves to karmic patterns so that we may find the material structure and expressions of the gifts and inner knowing that lies in wait. Here is where you let Spirit take the reins and to inspire your material creations, or rather, Co-Creations.

In other words, the next three days (31 May – 2 June 2016) are going to bring a very different kind of intensity to what we´ve been feeling as of late. Or rather, a variation on certain themes. One that leads us collectively to a significant threshold of consciousness, to older visions of the Sacred: Gloriously Dark and Powerfully Feminine.

Bear in mind that all this comes just after the recent approach of Mars in Scorpio to Planet Earth. So much has been unearthed, at the individual and the collective level. Whoo hoo!

Cosmic Intensity (29-31 May 2016) PISCES MOON TRIGGERS GRAND MUTABLE CROSS, MARS APPROACHES EARTH & MORE

Gauguin_Parau_Hina_Tefatou

 

Blessings to All. Over the next 12 hours, the Moon will be transiting between 10-17 Pisces. As it does so, it will conjunct Neptune & The South Node, oppose Jupiter & The North Node and sextile Pluto in Capricorn. The Moon has already squared The Sun, Vesta and Venus in Gemini. Together, all these bodies form a Grand Mutable Cross.

The Moon´s activation to each of these celestial players ignites the energy of the Cross and the many challenges (and gifts) it seeks to bring. The Grand Mutable Cross formed on May 26 and will last until June 28, involving the bodies mentioned above – and later – with Mercury as well. Please refer to ´Navigating the Dance of the Mutable Signs (May-September 2016)´ – http://wp.me/p4OUNS-1a7 – for a summary of this alignment.

With the Moon in Pisces, the Grand Cross is re-lit. We are asked to recognize the places within that connect us deepest with Spirit, or delude us into believing that we have done so. Some of us may also be re-living our deepest sense of woundedness, spanning across the karma of lifetimes.

Often the ´wound´ is conflated as this point of connection, but it is one of many. One does not have to be ripped away to allow Spirit through – but for many, this is the path that leads to that realization. Not the only way it can be done though.

It will be an intense experience for just about all of us. Though we will all respond to it differently.

Spending time in nature, grounding under a tree, practising mindfulness and meditation can help. As can just getting out there (if you have the energy to) and having some fun. Some of you may feel a lot more vulnerable – seek out friends or support networks that can help you hold your space through this process.

On top of all of this, we also see the Mars approach to Earth going exact at 2135 UTC time on May 30th – about 17 hours after the Moon finishes aspecting the bodies mentioned above.

Mars will be the closest its been to Earth since October 5, 2005. This kind of approach occurs once every 26 months.

Energetically speaking, this alignment can go either way, especially with Mars in Scorpio.

Where Scorpio can involve death, surgery, trauma, violence, pain – and so on – it can equally represent alchemy, regeneration, healing, re-birthing and transcendence.

Mars and Scorpio, in their own ways, speak to a very intense, primal, physical energy. It would be a good day to pay special attention to the body and it´s signals. Again, some of you will feel like soaring, and others will build a blanket fort.

I would say – just as a general rule, you are likely to feel a shift in the energy once the Pisces Moon trines Mars (now so close to the Earth, 28-29 Scorpio) and then enters Aries. The Aries Moon begins at 1:09 UTC time on May 31st.

Again, each of us will respond to this energy differently. And that is perfectly fine 🙂 Remember to practice self-care at this time. ❤

 

Blessings and Love,

ENTERING THE DARK WOMB: LIMINALITY, DARK-ADDICTION AND THE DISCOVERY OF HOME

001221-dark-star-02

As you discover the sacred embrace of Night, you begin to transform your perception of the Universe. It´s like living in a different time-space, or discovering a different type of element, or language through which you interpret and engage with reality.

A very different sort of reality. One which the ancient Goddess traditions encouraged us to journey into. One which we were later told to forget, vilify, and destroy.

And so many have heeded the call of the Sacred Dark in the past 3 years (Saturn in Scorpio, and so on). So many have begun to open their eyes to that different language or paradigm.

And just as the same way Light is romanticized and stylized and distilled into a form that often forgets its essence – I see the same happening with the way we conceptualize and speak of Darkness.

Rather than the space itself – the vessel of the Void – I see many becoming more and more fixated on the Path of Getting There. Which is a natural thing, but it still needs to be discussed.

And for many the path into the shadow is Pain. Gut wrenching, soul crushing, heart-destroying pain. And metaphors of abuse. And somehow we´re supposed to enjoy this. We´re supposed to dig deep and find what part of us likes this process. With many allegories to BDSM thrown into the mix.

Certainly a route to the Darkness, but not the only one. And certainly one that perpetuates that patriarchal narrative of Pluto raping Persephone and dragging her down below against Her will.

Again, one way of Getting there.

But the Goddess has never left the Shadow. She is the Void.

So why would you need to go through that? Unless you were told you had to, and believed in it?

What happens when we identify our greatest depths, highs, lows – the feel and thrill of excitement (not always the happy kind) – with the quality of being alive?

What happens when getting thrashed, surrendering, mastering (?) or simply being with the Shadow – is really how you get off and feel … simply .. feel…. alive?

When the adrenaline of the Descent and the Hero/ine´s War/Embrace of the Dragon/Serpent/Dark becomes synonymous with Life itself?

That then becomes worrisome.

The more we romanticize the pain, the abuse and the trauma that Dark-Working can bring (in some of its conceptualizations, certainly the more common ones), the more we legitimate levels of addiction to certain forms of Darkness and paths of reaching it.

It´s the same story with codependency and the way cultural norms romanticize it. Here the abusive partner is Pluto/Saturn and somehow we´re still expected to take it – to find salvation.

Some story, different container.

An unnecessary repetition. And one that takes away from the vessel itself.

It´s certainly a part of the process, but a Liminal One.

For some people the period lasts a while, and for others it´s a quick dip – in and out.

Either way, as you head for your Descent – watch the highs and lows that come – and know that this deep emotional roller-coaster is a catalyst for your catharsis. Your undoing. Breaking. and Re-making. But that´s all that is. A Catalyst.

It´s the psychodynamic tension that makes that change, whatever alchemical release happen so that transformation can begin. The drama, in and of itself, is not the end-point or outcome of the process. Just a part of it. It helps to bear that distinction in mind.

And when it´s done … some of you will head out of the cave, the matrix of death and creation, and head back on into the sunlight. Others will find something hidden further within. And head towards it.

A black light calls. Burning with the cool fire of ice. A different sort of light and experience.

There we meet the Dark Mother. The Womb. The Primordial Chamber.

And it gets real quiet.

We enter a space of Detachment. A space where all is, has been, will be and never was.

That space, I call home.

But it takes a bit of a dance, a whirl, a tumble and turn to get here. It´s a space that has no name, no label, no time. The Dark Womb comes close, but that too is a human construct.

And sometimes we stay there for a while, or longer.

Just as the silence begins to deafen, as the sheer .. weight … of unformed potential begins to spill over and through the dark abyss, just as you both enjoy and can no longer take the fullness of the Void … without warning …

BANG!

The Beginning, Back Again.

Blessings,

MARS IN SCORPIO, AGAIN (27 May – 2 August, 2016)

800px-Blake_Dante_Inferno_I

Between now till the end of June 2016, our journey into the Shadow/Underworld/Sub-conscious realms is going to be unusually intense. We will revisit skeletons in the closet not yet unearthed, heal and release parts of ourselves that are wounded (or specific relationships with that sense of wounding), slay – or – befriend your demons and dragons (depends on your paradigm). And energetic work of that ilk. Whether consider it a domain of torture, or of profound rebirth, or alchemy, or all of the above …  whatever you do  is going to be intense and transformative in an all-or-nothing kind of way. (Hello, Scorpio).

This is due to Mars´ upcoming return / re-entry into Scorpio that so many of us are tuning into nearly 2 days in advance!. We´re feeling it particularly intensely due to two factors:

(1) the current Mars-Venus opposition.

She (Venus) brings Mars´energy back to the body through the vehicle of relationships and brings it firmly to the realm of the mind / headspace for processing (Gemini)

(2) the fact that Mars will be closest to the Earth on May 30 – http://earthsky.org/?p=25816 – thank you Eric Starwalker for connecting the dots there

The proximity of the Red Planet to our own probably accounts for why we´re all feeling it so intensely so quickly.

So, back to topic.

Mars first exited Scorpio this year in March 2016. It will re-enter the sign due to its retrograde on 27 May. The Mars Retrograde ends on June 29. Mars will exit Scorpio and re-enter Sagittarius on August 2.

You´re going to be feeling a return to or revisitation of themes from December 2014, June 2015 and September 2015 – Saturn´s exit, re-entry and 2nd exit out of Scorpio. This will be especially pronounced at this time, and again, in early August. Time to act on those life-altering decisions made in previous years (if you haven´t already).

Generally speaking, the Mars-in-Scorpio-Retrograde period (late May – late June) is a good time to to see where you´ve invested your energy and resources and whether merger or withdrawal seems most appropriate. Try not to make major commitments until the start of July at the very least.

Things like karmic entanglements, ancestral work and matters of a less visible ( ´occult´ ) nature may need your attention at this time – look for a qualified practitioner if in doubt. Practices of psychic protection will be of great use (grounding, salt baths, wearing or using black obsidian and selenite) as a general rule.

But bear in mind that this isn´t about going to War in the Shadow. It´s about healing your relationship with Darkness, or that which is dis-acknowledged, hidden or suppressed within the Self. We hold so much of ourselves in this space – the good, the bad, the nameless, the formless, the infinite. Whilst the Descent may seem daunting, remember that the Darkness – or Sacred Shadow – is a place that can equally hold great healing, nurture, regeneration … in a deep, deep, embrace.

You emerged from Darkness. Just ask any fetus, seed, or shooting star.

The Darkness is a place that equally holds great healing, nurture and profound embrace. With Black Moon Lilith, Juno and Isis together at 0-1 Scorpio and the Venus-Mars opposition in the skies now – I would say a fair amount of the work will take us back to the Womb of the Dark Goddess, the Primordial Void.

It´s going to be an interesting month ahead.

 

Blessings,

PS – Bear in mind that Jupiter and Saturn square off on the 26th of May – and that we´re going to experience a lot of dynamic square-offs and eclipses in the Mutable Signs till the end of September. This is part of a much larger picture of adaptation and navigation. See ´Navigating the Mutable Signs – Overview of May-September 2016´ – http://wp.me/p4OUNS-1a7 . Please also note that the current round of astro-consultation sessions I offer lasts till June 23, 2016 – http://wp.me/p4OUNS-1b3

SUN CONJUNCT VESTA (3 Gemini) – 23/5

DSC02192

As the Light of the Sun merges with the Priestess of Air, we open ourselves to greater pathways of service, devotion and release. Vesta in Gemini encourages to look at the way we communicate, perceive, intellectualize and engage with our everyday realities. This isn´t about faraway realms or places, but the myriad, minute details (often unnoticed) that make up our daily experiences of life.

If you can be out in nature, notice the way the sun´s rays reflect through a clear pool of water. Or the gentle rustling of the leaves in the wind. Or the songs of the hills, or the messages of the birds. Or anything that truly captures your attention in the present.

Even if you´re not in nature, just look around you to see how your environment seeks to communicate with you. Perhaps through signs, symbols, people – look for the writing on the wall. Might be grafitti, might be an odd phrase on the telly. For some of you, these messages will come through people who featured strongly in your earliest years of life (a sibling, for instance).

Watch for the signs and the messages they bring to you. Some of you will be called to task – perhaps there is some work, or awareness that needs to be brought to a situation. Others will have to walk away from situations in which communication is no longer possible. Some will feel the need to express themselves strongly through words, or through alternate forms of communication (perhaps telepathy, perhaps interpretive dance – doors of awareness are open for you to explore). There are many ways this can play out for you.

Give yourselves a little time to just chill, and pay attention to the details, to the small things. You might see the larger picture beginning to emerge on its own, piece by piece.

Blessings,

Bairavee Balasubramaniam

Why Astrology Can´t Tell You Everything … nor should it try to …

800px-Milano-castello01

The way you work with today´s – or in fact, any energy – comes down to your Free Will. Not your chart, sign, Ascendant – or anything that astrology can tell you. At best, it acts as a framework for understanding yourself. But at the end of the day, it is still You who Chooses what you experience and manifest.

The most useful kind of astrology (I find) is the one you get when you seek out professionals who work with you at the one-to-one level. They give you a sense of the changes coming and ways to work with that energy – but still leave you enough room to interpret make the journey your own. And even then, at the more critical junctures of your life – not on a regular basis.

When you turn to anyone – be it God, Guru, Goddess, Astrologer, Priestess, Shaman – anybody or anything as the source of answers for your life – on a regular basis — you´re not really helping yourself grow. I believe that part of the ethics of spiritual work has to include knowing when to draw the line and turn away those who would rather ask you to sort out the mess and tangle that Life can be. Sometimes a glorious mess, sometimes just a muddly one.

But´s that why we´re here. To live, to learn, to experience. A glimpse of the road ahead is fine, but if you knew everything that needed to be known before heading along – what on earth would the point of the journey be?

Blessings!
