MARS STATIONS DIRECT AT 23 SCORPIO – THE TRUTH UNMASKED, MONTH-LONG YOD (FINGER-OF-FATE) IN JULY 2016

YOD

The Mars Retrograde began in mid-April at 8 degrees Sagittarius.

In the final week of May, Mars moved backwards into Scorpio, where it moved back to 23 degrees of the sign.

Yesterday (30/6), the Retrograde finally ended and Mars stationed direct.

Mars will leave Scorpio and re-enter Sagittarius in the first week of August, reaching 8 degrees (where the retrograde began) in the 3rd week of August.

Over four months of transition, with the energy just beginning to pick up once more.

In Sagittarius, Mars tests our will to launch, go forth and seek a new direction or path, as a means of knowing the self. In Scorpio, it asks us to consider how and why we act, exercise power or acquire what we desire for our own emotional security. This will have a special focus on intimate exchanges and mergers of resources.

I´ve been scrolling through Facebook and the results are absolutely diverse. Some are ending long-term partnerships, others are beginning them. Some grieve and others celebrate. There are simply too many ways the karmic waters of Scorpio have been navigated to find any generalizable rule.

One thing is clear though. We are waking up to our truer natures and those whom we choose to hold in our intimate spaces, or to choose to merge in some significant way with.

We´re now called to act on those realizations. How we do so will test us on whether we have truly learnt anything through the process.

Will you barge your way through, battering your will through the most delicate of exchanges?

Or will you realize that power is (usually) best expressed by knowing you have the skills, the strength and the depth to avoid crude displays of it?

This doesn´t just apply to individuals, but to larger entities – like nation-states.

Brexit (Britain exiting the European Union) is a key case in point – as has the wave of racial backlash that followed the results of its political referendum – and the will of the people who chose not to give into bigotry and hate.

These are all powerful, energetic choices. Ones that tells us with whom or what we choose to pool our resources with.

And more of those relevations will continue to unfold till early August, when Mars re-enters Sagittarius. That´s when many of us, having revised out inventory, cut away the deadwood, forged alliances or partnerships that truly enrich and nurture – will begin to launch forwards.

For now, many are still feeling the fall-out of the end of the Retrograde, whilst others reap its rewards. And the process continues to unfold.

Mars currently inconjuncts (or quincunxes) Eris & Uranus at 23-24 Aries and Vesta (the Priestess Asteroid) at 22 Gemini. Together these alignments create a Yod (Finger of Fate), a powerful configuration that brings deep karmic waters to a point of culmination. This particular Yod (with Uranus and Eris) lasts until the Final Week of July.

So the Journey Continues.

Blessings,

UNCONDITIONAL PRESENCE: The Anti-dote to Predation in the Name of Love.

WIN_20160502_194406

Without wanting to indulge too much in gender stereotypes, I notice three major ways people try to predate on my time and energy. There is a gendered difference there (on the whole, though).

Women come up to me and wave the ´I am hurt´ flag – ´You´ve got to do what I want because I´m upset´ or ´I need you because you are so kind and sweet and strong and it´s your job to make me feel better´ tactic. Which truly, I am not – just a facilitator, doing her job as Spirit guides her to. There´s a very big difference between being hurt or vulnerable and coming to me for advice (and many of you do, which is fine) – and in demanding a particular kind of response or treatment.

Men come up to me and wave the ´U r hot and I am horny´ or the more polite version of it ´You are a Goddess. I desire you, come be with me´ – that tactic says that I have to comply because of their urges. Like the former, it pays little attention to who I am as a person and what I may or may not want.

The third variant applies to both genders – where one person says – I know more than you – or – you don´t know more than me. Frankly, it´s a pointless argument. Nobody knows anything 🙂 In the grand scheme of the Universe, Time and Space. And what we know keeps shifting. If you feel threatened by another´s knowledge or see the need to inform them of what you know (and they don´t), then it´s an Ego issue. Case closed.

When I say no to the 1st demand (and so much of this job is also saying no), I get labelled as cold-hearted, uncaring, money-hungry, a fake guru, patronizing or arrogant- or other words of choice. To the latter, I am asked whether I fear that man, am insecure, am un-evolved, or am lesbian (not that it is a bad thing in any way), or something like that. The third argument I don´t even want to get into because it´s … pretty dumb to begin with.

I realize it may not be a popular post (when have I ever done those?), but these dynamics need to be spoken of. More publicly.

There´s a lot of abuse that facilitators do get on account of the work they do. Saying that they have to turn the other cheek or put up with it because they´re doing ´holy work´ absolutely absolves others of any form of energetic accountability.

Which is a way of playing onto the facilitator´s own ego and promotes an unnatural divide or hierarchy.

My approach (and I´m getting better with it) is to hold up the mirror and ask people to be accountable. To say that I do my work on the basis of what I feel I need to do, and not on the demands that are made upon me.

I used the word predation at the beginning because these tactics are exactly so: A means to get energy from someone who does not wish to give it, whatever their reasons may be.

I´m sure some of you will respond with the ´Oh, but you have to be unconditionally loving´ argument. That works, but unconditional Love works when you are truly being yourself – in alignment with Deeper Spirit. Part of Unconditional Love involves saying Yes, and partly in saying No. It is accepting of all responses.

Let me put it to you this way:

If a random person came up to you in the street and demanded you to have sex with them – would you? If every fiber of your being said No – would acceptance be an Unconditionally Loving act? To yourself? I think not.

Substitute the same example with time, emotions, money, any form of resource you can think of. And it becomes pretty clear.

Or to get even more visceral, if a plague-carrying parasite or supervirus had the words to ask – would you let it in your body, knowing that it would debilitate or kill you?

Yeah … I didn´t think so.

I think Unconditionally Present would be a better term to use. As the concept of Love is weighted down by thousands of years of projection, cultural baggage and ego-wish-fulfilment.

The funny thing is when energy vampires eventually get my response (energy) – when I am in Full Presence, they tend to run.

The moment anyone tells you that your presence must be expressed in x, y, or z way – you know you´re in the ego-game. It has nothing at all to do with Love.

So yes … Unconditional Presence. That when I choose to engage with you, I shall be nothing except my truest, deepest self. And that is the most Loving thing I can do for you.

But you might not like it 😉 – or you might do. Depends on you.

 

 

Unconditionally So,

Bairavee Balasubramaniam

Quick update: Won´t be doing sessions for most of July, till mid-August

Quite a few of you have been asking me about sessions and I´m struggling with the logistics of it. The net is so bad that I spend most of my time on less than 5 kb-s per second. The best alternative I can offer is a phone session, but please be advised that it will just be my voice on the recording. If that´s okay with you, those interested in booking sessions now – please send me a message 🙂
 
I will not be available after July 3rd till (what looks like) the mid of August. I will be in India at that time, organizing the start of my Sanskrit course and on pilgrimage to the North (Himalayan region & the Southern States, etc.). I may have a few days free between July 7-17, but again, playing it by ear.
I´ll be writing posts on my journey and astrological alignments as usual, but need to do some stuff for myself.
 
Ciao ciao!

 

MERCURY (25 Gemini) SQUARED CHIRON (25 Pisces): The Message and The Wound (28-29 June 2016)

They_Looked_at_Her_and_Whispered_to_Each_Other_-_M.A._and_W.A.J._Claus (1)

Blessings Everyone! This alignment brings us the opportunity to heal our relationship with our sense of woundedness, or to intensify that pain.

Chiron´s wound in Pisces is that one that asks us to remain open, vulnerable, sensitive and wide-eyed in the face of a world filled with all kinds of psychic phenomena, emotions and energy swirling about in the Ocean of the Collective Unconscious.

By remaining open to that sense of vulnerability, some of us will get hurt in that process. Perhaps that pain will become a catalyst for growth, and perhaps it will intensify a sense of being trapped, victimized or even martyred. That comes down to your free will and spiritual experience thus far.

And some of us won´t get (as) hurt. We may discover that much of our wounds and the (seeming) inability to heal them lies in our inability to let them go, to forgive, to wipe the slate clean and cut the cords that bind, blind and drain us. Some of us spend all of our energy on fearing the wound, rather than experiencing it ourselves.

Perhaps it´ll lead us to a pathway for healing, maybe even transcending the consciousness of the wound entirely. Again, that´s down to you and your process.

The source, or catalyst for these changes comes from Mercury´s transit through its home sign of Gemini. Watch for messages that come to you, internally or externally – maybe through people you knew in early childhood, your siblings, or the people in your immediate environment.

Perhaps the message won´t come through people at all, but through a notebook you find written by a much younger self. One a stone on the ground. Or a feather floating in front of your nose. Or something of that ilk.

Here, ideas and messages come to transform the way we see ourselves and communicate our presence to the rest of Existence. We´re asked to find the words and expressions that are true and real to us.

And in so doing, we may hurt others – or ourselves – or we may heal them – or both. You can´t predict which way that will pan out.

Just aim to be truthful, clear and be willing to clarify your intent where required. What people will take from your words is never in your hands. Nor should it be. (The Joys of Free Will, eh 😉 ? )

When I look at other bodies in the skies, I see that the Mercury-Chiron square is part of a Grand Mutable Cross. Let´s briefly look at all four corners, shall we?

25 Gemini – Phaethon and Mercury. Same deal as discussed above. Phaethon asks us to look at which words shoot out of our mouths spontaneously – and to question what, or who it is – we may be rebelling against. He´s a bit of a teenage rebel who ends up recklessly endangering the planet and eventually gets killed for it.

25-26 Virgo – Hebe, Elatus and Hygeia. An important time to look at our sense of boundaries, particularly in matters of sexuality, healthy and channels of self expression. An excellent time to work on healing the parts of self that fall easily to seduction and temptation to inappropriate partners (not in a sex-is-bad-sense, but in a there-are-some-people-you-probably-don´t-want-to-have-sex-with-no-matter-how-tempting-they-appear). Hebe´s energy is akin to the young high school girl who gets lured by her much older (and creepy) math professor. (You get the idea). Hygeia focuses on paths of healing, whereas Elatus just needs to DECLARE whatever he´s doing to the world. Or at least to himself. But in an articulate, passionate manner, whoever your audience is.

6 bodies between 24-27 Sagittarius. Just getting into the most important of these.

Lachesis at 25 Sagittarius indicates that we have words and opinions that we need to ´release´ so we can begin a deeper process of healing. Sometimes you just have to let it out, so to speak. (But be as mindful as you can be through the process)

The Galactic Center at 27 Sagittarius aligns us to the deeper mysteries and wisdom of departed saints, the Cosmos, Universal Intelligence (call it what you will). What what or whom we are drawn to at this time. Some people will show you the way you need to go, and others will show you the opposite. (Which is a different way of guiding you in any case).

23-25 Pisces: Manwe and Chiron. Manwe rules the elements of air and wind, allied strongly with the eagle. He reminds us to rise above the immediate concerns of the everyday and to look at things from the eagle´s perspective. Fly over the clouds and see the bigger picture, and in so doing, you will better understand the flow of karma that you are in (and have chosen to be in, and how to step out of it). Chiron´s role has been discussed above.

So – when you take all these players together as part of the Grand Mutable Cross, what you see is an a opportunity to dig deep and let loose! Honor your voice, your ideas, your wounds, your medicine, your wisdom, your vulnerability – honor it all.

And remember that as you do so, others are doing the same. The way it all comes together is generally an unpredictable one.

So if in doubt, clarify gaps in communication. Make no assumptions about others and what they might mean, ought to mean and how they should communicate.

Most of the mix-ups we see in communication happen when assumptions that do not match reality are made. It just muddles the process up further. And other times it just comes down to ambiguous communication – in which case take responsibility for your words. And say it like it is (to you, at least).

In the presence of grounded facilitators, mentors or simply friends who know what they´re doing – it´s a good space-time to look at different ideas, paradigms, karmic paths of healing-suffering-transcendence-and getting deeper with it all. And where you stand with it. Or you could just sit by yourself, under a tree, or by the sea and do the same thing.

Whether it´s a roar, a rumble of thunder, the spark of fire, or the lightest whisper – my friends – Find your Voice and SPEAK.

(Or write. Or draw. Whatever works 😉 )

Some recommended Crystals:
Amethyst, Smoky Quartz, Chrysoprase, Blue Lace Agate, Aquamarine, Charoite and Fairy Cross – explore have a look-see and which resonates most with where you are and what you need at this time.

Blessings and Love,

Cauldron: Of Politics, Power and Spirituality

A new space for my political writings. Feel free to follow it if you like. Also on FB. Ciao!

Cauldron: On Politics, Power and Spirituality

12439275_791112170992780_6851932624935276606_n

Hello everyone. Most of you visiting this site for the first time will probably know me from www.bairaveebalasubramaniam.com or The Sky Priestess – having been introduced to my more spiritual and astrological writings.

As many of you know, I´ve spent years as a social worker, motivational speaker and have a PhD in Political Science. I have always been political, since the very start of my life and I suspect that I continue to be so, till the very end. Spirituality is a different part of my life that has similarly accompanied me from the get-go. And I see – in my case at least – there´s no giving up one and taking up (solely) the other.

I created this space to focus my political writings, with spiritual commentary where appropriate as I feel that part of my being needs greater expression. It is one thing to focus on Spirit within as a…

Felt I needed to share it. So I did.

When I was a child, I wanted to be a physicist, an astronaut, or a neurosurgeon. Or some strange combination of all of the above. I excelled at calculus, mathematics, music, languages and so on.

I disliked the politics of the land I was born in and became a social worker, trainer and public figure. Within a short span of time, I ended up working with over 2,500 children of my own ethnicity. I focused on teaching them about the neuroscience of the brain and how it could infinitely re-wire itself – and tools that can be used to facilitate the learning process. In ways that kids would understand and enjoy.

And for political reasons, I had to leave – and started my journey into higher education.

I started out in Physics, but quickly found that I liked literature, politics, performance and poetry. A gifted Nigerian professor got me started on African History, then American History – and introduced me to the Model United Nations.

And fate intervened.

I switched major and countries and became a political scientist by training. Living in the US, Germany and the UK – and travelling to many other countries for research work and attending conferences. Eventually, through much personal struggle and illness, I completed a PhD in Political Science. My thesis was called ´The dramaturgy of ritual performances in the Indian Parliament´.

And then after that a major download came, and I became an astrologer and a priestess and God/dess knows what else. And somehow elements of all of the above come spinning together in what is a tapestry I myself do not fully understand.

But what I do understand through all of this is that my work – as a priestess – never asks me to look past the human structures this species uses to govern itself – it asks me to engage with them powerfully. Into the muck, as it were.

To get lower, to sink deeper to the heart of things, and never to escape from them. But to embrace them. And in so doing, to transform them.

It´s meant popping a lot of bubbles, and wielding a very large sword. When appropriate. But – for those of you who know me – that´s just how I roll.

But my heart has always been with the stars and the quiet, dark detached spaces they hold. To me, they have always seemed like home.

And yet my work, is in the here and the now. It looks like a new way is opening up for me and it´s going to be a very interesting dance of all of the above.

Wish me luck 🙂 The next chapter starts for me on a trip to India. I´m looking to do a second PhD there, this time in Sanskrit. Or in whatever else I´m supposed to be doing.

We´ll see – whatever it will become, it´s certainly a very interesting journey I signed up for.

BLESSINGS FROM THE STORM: ROLE-SHIFTING, ENERGETIC CURRENTS AND OVERVIEW OF CELESTIAL ENERGIES (25 JUNE 2016)

800px-Airplane_vortex_edit

There´s a powerful Grand Water Trine in the skies right now, involving The Sun (4 Cancer), The Moon (4 Pisces) and Black Moon Lilith / the Mean Apogee (3 Scorpio). Grand Trines intensify the flow of energy and mutually amplify the natural intensity of each astrological body involved in the alignment. The Cancer Sun asks us to focus upon our deeper, innermost dwellings – the places, space and states of being we associated with the Home. One´s Womb, in an archetypal sense. Pay attention to the more tender, vulnerable emotions that come through the Crab / Cancer´s thick shell as these give you clues as to your deeper emotional make-up and requirements. The Pisces Moon similarly orients us to the realm of the unseen, navigated through subtle-yet-powerful psychic undercurrents. Follow that which takes you deeper within and closer to what you might call the Soul´s experience. Many who use the term refer to the conscious experience the Soul, whilst the unconscious or rather sub-conscious experience which cannot truly be put into words – without losing its essence. For the nature of Pisces, at the end of the day, is amorphous and formless. Ever-changing.

The role of Black Moon Lilith in Scorpio asks us to look at our (again) inner impulses and drives, those parts of us that seek greater control, power and authority. We are asked to reflect upon where, how and upon whom we project these desires onto, or who has done the same towards us. A truly revealing time in terms of the psychological-underpinnings of intense, intimate relationships. The same applies for those who work in shamanic realms, especially when bringing healing to ancestral lines and karmic entanglements. This is especially as the Sun approaches Hades (5 Cancer) in a day´s time. At present it is conjunct Hephaistos (3 Cancer), asking us to feel the flow of this energy and to bring stagnant energies into a more creative, dynamic and ultimately healing form.

Taken together, the three bring us into deeper karmic waters, intensifying all that we currently experience at the intrapersonal, interpersonal and collective dimensions of consciousness.

Practically speaking, drinking purified water (or water with shungite crystals added) would be of benefit, as will performing rituals of release (or simply being by) bodies of water. Salt soaks for the feet or salt baths may provide an added outlet of release.

There´s actually quite a few exact aspects in the skies that speak to a collective changing of time – especially in terms of the way we understand relationship roles and the constructs we use to evaluate them. For those who dare to do so and have the grounding in place, it is an excellent time to step into new roles – that therefore create potentially new patterns of partnership – and new ways of discovering intimacy. I´m not going to go into each alignment as they pretty much lead to the same conclusion. But for those who would like a list, here´s a partial one:

Mars (23 Scorpio) opposite Amor (23 Taurus),
Mars (23 Scorpio) trine Psyche (22 Cancer),
Venus conjunct Kronos conjunct Eurydike (9 Cancer) – all trined Eros (9 Pisces) and opposite Requiem (8 Capricorn).

This will play out in many different ways for people, and there´s many different ways of addressing each situation. What I would say is to watch the way you respond to your partner – and vice versa – and to give one another permission to step into new territory – and where appropriate – to do so … together.

For those of you not in a partnership, this may refer to your inner partnership with the Masculine and Feminine Archetype. The former is a reflection of the latter in any case. And the story of how the two relate, for many, is now being re-written.

Bear in mind that the Mars retrograde through Scorpio is about to come to an end on June 29th. The Grand Mutable Cross in the skies begins to die down at around the same time. And almost instantly, we begin the buildup to the Cancer New Moon on the 4th of July.

Its going to be a very busy week, energetically speaking. (But when hasn´t it been in recent times?).

Here´s an overview of some of the larger alignments whose energies continue to strongly influence the energies of the skies, as we perceive them. Bear in mind that different people will respond to this differently. Some of you will be freaking out, and others will stay calm. And neither is better or worse than the other – as the Universe works its magic through all modalities.

Some of you freaking out are in need of grounding, seclusion and silence, and some of you are dancing with the whirls of the storm – because that is exactly where you need to be and what you need to do. Let no one tell you otherwise. Sometimes the Universe teaches through chaos and tears, and other times through silence and stability (or a jumble of em all).

Some of you are extra calm, or even jubliantly happy because that is the way you´re facilitating the shift for everyone else – at the heart of it. But even there, its not always as straightforward as it looks. Many who feel calm and silent now will join the whirling dervishes later, and those dancing now will move the calm heart of the vortex in due course. And they will then join the first category, then first will join the second. And that´s how we keep the hokey-pokey going. No one stays static through the process.

There are some points where you will have to feel powerfully raw and human, and other times when you are the wind, or the rocky mountain, or the salty surf – it´s just part of the Dance. Let the shift move you and let yourself move into different roles as part of the process.

Be flexible about the process…

Some of you will need to speak, and others will need to stay silent at certain points. There´s just no generalizing it.

So it is best not to pedestalize any position and/or look down on its opposite. I´ve seen this going on as well in the past two days.

My current path is the messy dance in the arms of the storm, having done the quiet space holding at its heart a few weeks prior. And it will most certainly switch again.

And – now to the astrology….

There´s the Jupiter-North Node conjunction at 16 Virgo, trining Pluto at 16 Capricorn. I´ve written of that before – but in short – it´s an excellent time to re-think and re-structure your relationship with the material world, the daily acts or rituals through which you structure your life, your path of service, your relationship with the body-as-sacred-vessel, and the larger legacy you choose to leave behind once you leave this Earth-Plane … along with the relationship you have with institutions we have allowed ourselves to see as having the authority to govern us. Bear in mind that the exact Jupiter-Pluto trine happens tomorrow (26 June).

Those of you with placements near 16 Taurus are going to experience this as an extremely powerful Grand Earth Trine (or Kite, if you consider the South Node´s position at 16 Pisces as well).

Saturn, The Lord of Time and Karma (11 Sagittarius) has been up to quite a bit, still in an exact 1-degree T-square to Neptune, The Mystic (12 Pisces) and Asbolus, The Seer of Signs (12 Gemini). (Give yourself a hug if you feel you need one, especially if you have a placement near 11-12 Virgo). Of course, this is still part of the Grand Mutable cross that will continue to dominate the skies till the end of June, with Jupiter and the North Node completing the structure.

This Mutable T-Square is one that asks us to question the structures that seek to govern the world and set its course – by either dissolving these structures or making them more receptive to the spiritual realm, compassion, energetic paradigms – and so on. There´s a breakdown now of political arrangements not in tune with the mood of the collective unconscious (for better or worse) and in that process a great deal of grief and disillusionment. I refer of course to Britain´s decision to leave the European Union (Brexit). In the process, so much has been revealed as false, and so many hopes and ideals alienated in the process. After Brexit, certainly, there are going to be a lot of pieces to pick up. And new structures to rebuild, hopefully more compassionate, more inclusive institutional structures of governance. Time will tell.

At the more esoteric level, Saturn is opposite The Sphinx-conjunct-Atlantis (11 Gemini). Some of you will be consciously accessing and remembering information gained in earlier life-times from these civilizations. Or simply downloading parts of their consciousness. Larimar and Lapiz Lazuli are excellent allies in this process, though, they´re strong stones – use them only if you feel grounded enough to do so.

Uranus (24 Aries) is still conjunct Eris (23 Aries) and Ceres (The Mother Nurturer, 24 Aries). Long story short, we fly right now the more we stay to our truth and what honors the fire within. Practice self-care and walk your talk. It´ll be scary for some, and a welcome opportunity for others (maybe both). Ixion (23 Sagittarius) trines these bodies, bringing the possibility that you-or-others may give into the inner tyrant. Watch how certain you are about what you believe and the truth that you hold. One of the greatest tests of spiritual growth is to realize that not everyone has to think as you do in order to be on some meaningful journey of their one. Live and let live, so to speak. It will be quite a powerful alignment for those with placements near 23-24 Leo.

Uranus-Eris-Ceres also oppose Typhon (23 Libra) and Nemesis (24 Libra) at this time. Again, an interesting time for collaborations, partnerships and relationships. You may see old karmic debts emerge, waiting to be re-balanced – or simply – rumbles in your own consciousness coming through various partners, e.g. triggered by them. If without a partner or not in some significant collaboration, you´re going to see it playing out within your own psyche. Remember that you are always in a co-collaborative relationship with the Cosmos, in any case.

Last- but by no means the least – Vesta, the Priestess, squares the North Node and South Node at 17 Gemini. This is a pivotal time for those who walk a Path of Service to move away from old patterns of karma that force you to narrow your vision of what service is what how it is best performed. And to open new doors of awakening. The more mental baggage you release at this time will only make room for new ways of perceiving, serving and connecting with the Cosmos. It will be particularly powerful for you should you have placements near 16-17 Sagittarius as well.

There. A decent review of some of the major alignments in the skies now. I hope it gives you a roadmap to understanding what may be coming up for you, for those around you, and for the larger collective at this time. Stay open and hold onto to nothing 🙂 Whatever you need will stay (or come), and whatever you don´t, will leave.

Blessings from the Storm,
