RETURN TO THE TRUE SELF, WATCH THE WORLD TRANSFORM: EQUINOX & FULL MOON IN LIBRA

This Equinox and Full Moon at 0 Libra is all about Returning Home To The True Self.

It´s an alignment which asks you to stay in your lane, and focus on your self-work.

You may ask why – and that´s a valid reason. Why be self-centered when there is a world in chaos around you?


Because – that´s where the healing needs to begin.

Many of you interested in my work have a passion towards social justice and decolonizing the mind (and the world created by it).

I support this work fully.

Whilst you can (understandably) frame the energy of this Full Moon in terms of unfairness and the imbalance of global scales or the structural echoes of institutional wrongs…

I´d like to point out that there is an even greater possibility of change heralded by this Moon.

And it asks us to put away our scripts, narratives, conceptual tools – for a moment – to return to the authentic self.

That is a self, a spark of consciousness that knows no time, space, race, memory, trauma. It is the purest expression of you in the world.

And collectively – we have lost sight of that Primordial Self.

This is a harder question to navigate for those with genetic and ancestral memories of trauma, abuse, colonization and genocide. As so much of cultural identity is shaped by the effects of such experiences. It may almost feel like a betrayal that identity to say:

Allow me to experience myself, free from the narrative of the past. 
Allow me to simply be.

Even if for a moment.

And yet – this act can be incredibly liberating, freeing and healing. 
Not just for you, but for your ancestral line (past, present and future)
It allows that line to find expression of self, identity and culture that goes beyond the dualistic construct of oppressor and oppressed.

It does not ignore it. It does not try to mitigate what has been done. 
It transcends it through pure Presence and immediate Experience.

At this time, such work is astrologically supported by the fact that the Full Moon in Libra will conjunct the Super-Galactic Center (1 Libra). It allows us to rewrite collective contracts and notions of justice (and the karmic patterns that hold it all in place). It will also oppose the Sun (0 Aries) and Chiron (1 Aries).

Chiron´s energy brings us back to that pure potential of healing. To allow ourselves to experience – and fill the spaces created by The Original Wound. However that expresses itself for you.

Stay in your lane for a moment (before you head back out there with profoundly new perspective).

Get back to whatever activity, memory or state of being that simply allowed you to Be. 
In Full Presence. 
It differs from person to person.

Take that energy and sit with it. Feel into it and allow it to transmute old codes and patterns that have been held onto for far too long.

Allow both Gaia and the Skies to fill you with new life-force, energy, and perspective.

And then watch how you transform. 
And the many blessings you will bring to the relationships in this world, and the world around you.

Blessings and Much Healing to you all,

BACK TO THE TRUTH OF THE SOUL: SUN (27 Pisces) SQUARES GALACTIC CENTER (27 Sagittarius)

Blessings to Everyone. Today holds great promise as the Sun (27 Pisces) squares the Galactic Center (27 Sagittarius). We are shown the way back to the Primordial Truth of our Souls.

We are being asked to move away from teachers or teachings that no longer align with our spiritual compass.

Feel free to do so with compassion, forgiveness (if relevant) – and keep on moving.

Others will discover teachers who will point you precisely in the direction you need to be headed: Straight back to yourself.

And as always, be mindful of their time and honor their energetic boundaries.

(And of course sometime its has less to do with the teacher and more to do with the readiness to receive their teaching … also has to be said)

Take notes and be very mindful of the dreams, impressions and emotions that come up for you right now. They are clues to the unfolding chapters of your journey.

This will come big time during the last week of November 2019 when both Jupiter and Venus will conjunct the Galactic Center itself. That´s when we´ll be seeing an incredible influx of energy and collective alignment and movement.

If you are feeling very ungrounded, reach out to those who are able and willing to hold a safe, clean, (agenda-free) space for you. Or find a tree and sit under it.

And remember – Hug a tree and you´ll get one in turn ..

Eat well and stay hydrated. Vitamin B complex and a good probiotic can go a long way (if your system is strong enough to handle it – check with your health practitioner if in doubt).

Watch your breathing and try to find that space of stillness within, even if everything is whirling about on the surface.

This will go a long way.

Right now – your primary focus needs to be on your relationship with your guides and teachers. The rest will fall into place 🙂

Being overly resistant to guidance from a trusted source – and being overly dependent on the same are both problematic in different ways.

Find that balance. Go with truths that resonate with you. And be willing to see your own blind spots in uncovering what that means for you.

Sometimes that will also require you to overturn your long-held beliefs and views on teachings or paths that have given you comfort in the past.

Nothing stays static in the Universe. Nor should it. 
(Sometimes it takes a really long time to move, but it does)

All this comes as we head towards an immensely powerful Equinox and Full Moon at 0 Libra which will conjunct the Super-Galactic Center (1 Libra).

This will be a powerful time to renegotiate contracts that no longer Serve and to reaffirm relationships and contracts that still align with your Soul´s chosen journey.

This occurs in 3 days from now (20-21 March in America/Asia).

As always,

Many Blessings and Much Love !

Quick Reminder: Sun conjunct Mercury Rx in Pisces

Stay safe, stay hydrated, stay grounded. And keep discerning.

There’s a lot of stuff coming up with the Sun – Mercury Rx conjunction. And it’s a wildcard (hello Pisces). The exact conjunction has passed (Sun is at 24 degrees , Mercury just now at 23)

It can be a powerful day to do some truly life-changing soul-searching and spirit-remembering : if you / your facilitator / ideally both are able to work through this alignment. It’s also very good for those contacting loved ones who have passed or past selves who are not integrated. It’s wonderful for looking past three illusions we tell ourselves and the narratives that hold trauma in place .

That being said …

It can be utterly painful, disassociative, triggering or flat out dangerous for others. Energy is moving through from deep spaces : look at what it is and what it claims to be before engaging deeply . There is plenty of scope for illusion and/or losing the self.

Labradorite and Lepidolite would be my gemstones of choice for this one. Smoky quartz if you need a hand grounding.

Listen to your innermost instincts and follow their guidance. If you can’t feel it (or aren’t sure of what you’re feeling), rest, sleep, listen to some music and/or ground out instead.

If you’re feeling extra vulnerable, practice self-care and find organizations and individuals who are able and willing to support you. Remember to honor their time and energy as well.

Blessings

March-April 2019: Transforming our Relationship with Power, Capricorn & Ancestral Structures of Inheritance

March-April 2019 is a pivotal window of intervention in the way we manifest systemic transformation and restructuring across the globe. We are guided by our innermost capacity to commune with Spirit and re-discover our true power as Sovereign Co-Creators. 

The problem is that a lot of karmic ties, contracts and ancestral forms of parasitism come up at the same time – demanding to be reinstated. This is especially indicated by the South Node´s conjunction with Pluto in Capricorn (late March – early April). 

We´re truly being asked to purge ourselves of these programs and imprints that seek to capture or contain that free movement of Spirit (Pisces) for its own egoic purposes. This happens with the self, then familial ties, then deeper karma with the collective and its super-structure. 

Only if we ´unplug´ our spiritual permissions to reproducing structures of power the way they have been manifest will we actually manifest the Piscean Promise in its cleanest form.

It is worthy to note that the last time the South Node conjuncted Pluto in Capricorn – it was late 1776! This was the year that saw the American Declaration of Independence (the first nail in the coffin of British rule)! Thomas Paine penned an essay called ´The American Crisis´, around the time of the exact conjunction – and it really does capture the present mood in the US today: 

THESE are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated. Britain, with an army to enforce her tyranny, has declared that she has a right (not only to TAX) but “to BIND us in ALL CASES WHATSOEVER” and if being bound in that manner, is not slavery, then is there not such a thing as slavery upon earth. Even the expression is impious; for so unlimited a power can belong only to God.

Whether the independence of the continent was declared too soon, or delayed too long, I will not now enter into as an argument; my own simple opinion is, that had it been eight months earlier, it would have been much better. We did not make a proper use of last winter, neither could we, while we were in a dependent state. However, the fault, if it were one, was all our own; we have none to blame but ourselves. But no great deal is lost yet.

[…]

The present winter is worth an age, if rightly employed; but, if lost or neglected, the whole continent will partake of the evil; and there is no punishment that man does not deserve, be he who, or what, or where he will, that may be the means of sacrificing a season so precious and useful.

Thomas Paine, Dec 23 1776, The American Crisis

The price paid for authentic, political self-determination by the colonies was war. (And yes, I´m well aware of the one-sidedness of the narrative – and the cost that indigenous persons and slaves would then have to bear in the subsequent wars of Independence and the process of nation-building).

Let´s hope that the Freedom being fought for now is far more inclusive. 

Given the weight of this alignment – it is no wonder that we´re feeling it so intensely now. 

Between April-October, Saturn will conjunct the South Node in Capricorn within 1 degree! That means we´re going to be even more focused on transforming this super-structure and our collective relationship with power (and what we are willing to bear or sacrifice to attain it). It´s incredible!

But what can flighty Pisces do in the face of such weighty matters?

It can remember its connection to The One Source. That mystical place from which all begins, and all things go to end. 
No matter how dire our situation appears to be on Earth, it is but a blink of an eyelid (perhaps even less so) in Universal time and scale. There are answers to be found when we view the situation through the eyes of Pure Spirit. And to do so, we have to go Inwards. 

Deep … Deep … Within. 

That´s what´s the Piscean transits between March -April are encouraging us to do. Here´s a list (+/- 1 day for times across the globe)

Sun conjuncts Mercury Rx – March 14
Vesta conjuncts Mercury Rx – March 17
Sun exits Pisces – March 20
Neptune conjuncts Mercury Rx- March 24
Venus enters Pisces – March 26
Mercury Retrograde ends in Pisces – March 28
Neptune conjuncts Mercury – April 2
Vesta exits Pisces – April 3
Venus conjuncts Neptune – April 9
Mercury exits Pisces – April 16
Venus exits Pisces – April 20

I don´t want to make this article longer than it needs to be – refer to the video for a little more description on what each Piscean player brings to the table. Long story short: It´s time to peel away those layers of karma – and to return back to our connection with Source. 

Practically speaking, 

Be disciplined in your spiritual practice and the boundaries of energy you hold with others.


Ensure that what you do does not fix you into an old structure of material or spiritual power. 

Focus on your sovereign co-creative relationship with the Cosmos. 

Radiate that knowledge, knowing that does not require you to ´sacrifice´ your energy in any way. 

Hold yourself more accountable for the energies you engage with and what you manifest. 

Lead by example. 

Ultimately, the energy of this sextile (Pisces-Capricorn) is available to us for some time. Saturn sextiles Neptune throughout 2019, and the Pluto-Neptune sextile continues for years!

What we do now will help us manifest a clearer, purer and more aligned outcome. It´s a case of setting the right kind of groundwork for the shift that is underway. 

The more we invest into this consciously right now – the more we stand to benefit in times to come. 

And remember – the sextile becomes Yod (or Finger of Fate) when activated by the energy of Leo (the Lion). 

Let the end goal be the manifestation of a world in which the Lion-Child can come out to play in its innocence and purity. 

Let it live amongst the other beings of this planet in Joy, as equal Children of Creation. 

Let each of us lead the way from that space of fierce compassion burning in the core of the Heart. 

What you do now – will have extraordinarily powerful ripples for the future of this planet, and all upon it. 

We live in monumental times.

Blessings

PISCES NEW MOON: Navigation, Transcendence, Maya (March 2019)

Piscean energy is limitless. It is formless. It has no beginning and end. It comes as a wave (or many waves) that ripples across time, space, realm, and dimension. It is associated with spiritual experiences, metaphysical events, psychic gifts – to name a few things. It is also associated with transcendental states of enlightenment or illumination experienced by the Ascended Masters such as Jesus, Buddha, The Magdalene, Avalokiteswara, Mahaavatar Babaji and so on.

In essence:

Piscean energy expresses itself through humanity´s longing to rediscover a spiritual essence or experience of One-Ness with Source.

In practice:

Due to the ways in which we have been conditioned through life-times, we tend to have a more muddled experience – or at least, clarity in parts. Some of us detach from spirituality entirely, forsaking it through escapist, addictive or obsessive attachments and behaviors in the material realm. We forget that Spirit moves through all things, both manifest and unmanifest.

In extreme cases, a person can manifest intense feelings of despair, apathy and/or suicidal ideation because of spiritual disconnection.

Others conflate psychic experiences with spiritual states of attainment. Here is where most facilitators and seekers are. We interpret the gifts and experiences of past lives and alternate realms as markers of spiritual attainment. This is not the case. A person can have no memory of past lives and/or access to psychic powers and still be deeply spiritual.

And of course there are moments where we experience that frequency of enlightenment and – for a brief moment – touch the fingertips of Creation Energy. That´s more of the beauty in Pisces. It is that same impulse that moves through artists, dreamers, musicians and children.

Truthfully, these are all immense discussions – but this is a solid starting point for exploration.

This extraordinary Pisces New Moon at 15 degrees conjuncts Neptune and Vesta at 16 degrees, squares Asbolus at 16 Gemini, and sextiles Saturn at 18 Capricorn and Mars at 13 Taurus. My honest response to this Moon is WOW.

For those of you who are soaring with this energy and are in-sync with it all – just refer to yesterday´s video as it brings through the codes and alignments generally needed. This piece is more so for those who – like me – have struggled with different aspects of this Moon.

Link To Yesterday´s Video (The Cheerleader Version): https://youtu.be/itTYrP9gk5s

This New Moon brings out the full range of these experiences (and then some) especially as it conjuncts the ruler of Pisces : Neptune. Neptune rules multiple systems of the body in addition to our psychic, karmic and spiritual experiences. It controls the function of the Master Gland, i.e. the pituitary gland which controls the function of all others.

Pay attention to hormonal and emotional shifts. Clary sage (oil) can be very useful in helping you ´see´ when you feel blurry, and as can black obsidian (gemstone).

Not everything you feel right now is right, appropriate or real. Sometimes the test comes through discernment, rather than sensation. Humanity has a tendency to ascribe moral virtues to spiritual experiences – but not everything that claims to be good and energetic is.

Take care of your physical body and its needs of nutrition, hydration and rest. Energizing water with elite noble shungite can go a long way in supporting metaphysical processes through the physical medium.

The New Moon is also conjunct Vesta: The Facilitator. As discussed yesterday, this is a time to really look at the contracts of service, servitude, enslavement or self-erasure. You may also want to look up a previous article of mine discussing the ´cycles of Vesta´.

Basically it´s a very intense cycle of valuation, discard, escapism, commitment to some path or focal point of service. The video has a more thorough discussion of priestess / facilitator karma and why we don´t really need that in its old form anymore.

Previous Article: https://bairaveebalasubramaniam.com/…/juno-the-awakener-of…/

The New Moon is also sextiled Mars and Saturn. So those of you with bodies between 13-18 Leo and/or Libra will experience Yods or Fingers of Fate. This accelerates your karmic journey and brings it to a point of climax. You get to choose what you manifest more directly than others without this alignment. (Hang on to your hats though!)

But long story short – we´re being asked to let go of old karmic contracts and ways of relating with structures and institutions of power, toxic aggression, the ways in which we understand authority.

Asbolus´ role in the whole alignment allows us to discover great truths – provided we are willing to let go of the language, conceptual frameworks and articulations that we have constructed to understand Spirit.

Revelation emerges the moment you are willing to empty the cup.

To be humble, to be teachable, to be willing to experience Spirit sans our ideational baggage.

The full scope of this Moon is just … like I said before … WOW.

The video talks about some of the tools that you can use especially if experiencing extreme symptoms. Here´s a recap of some key principles and ideas:

Keep your spaces, inner and outer, clear.

Align your intentions with the highest and deepest expression of Source in it’s purest form.

Remember that you cannot will or logic your way into this Moon, it is one to be deeply felt and intuitively navigated.

Expressing the energy you feel through art, music or meditation is great – if you feel comfortable and grounded enough to do so!

Wear labradorite, black tourmaline, black obsidian and/or black onyx if you’re feeling like you need protection.

Essential oils such as tea tree and Frankincense will be absolutely useful now, especially if you feel your space needs a little clearing.

Remember to check for contraindications and honor the plant material.

What patterns come up, face them with compassion and courage. Be mindful of old patterns that seek to guilt trip you into servitude or self-erasure.

Protect yourself, especially if engaging with volatile people. Compassion is powerful, but it must start with the self.

Feel free to work with this protective space cleansing mantra if in need : https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=rD9DCqVbMy0

Remember to ground out if you feel overly activated. Avoid stimulants, alcohol, etc. and if all else seems too hard – rest.

Poem: AMIDST WAILING WIND AND SPIRITED SEA

Today´s video is a poem that I wrote a few days ago. It links well with current alignments that provide us with massive windows for evolutionary change. It´s all happening between March 1-7, 2019. You can find out more of the astro-info here: https://youtu.be/cEWlP8eT85s

Enjoy!


AMIDST WAILING WIND AND SPIRITED SEA

A wave found itself alone in an vast ocean one day,
Unheard in a mighty roar of surf and foam,
It whimpered at first
And found no solace
Only the harsh, biting cold
With no face

And so it began
In search of something
It had never known

No one could tell
Where its tears began
or fell
Did even they roll?

Amidst the wailing winds,
The spirited seas.

Where was it to go?

The wave pushed itself higher and higher
Now swollen with grief

In search of escape
from its raucous bretheren
Enmeshed
A whirling dervish of surf and foam
And grief

With no beginning,
And no end

Where was it
To stand?

All who saw it said
What an angry wave this must be

But they could not see
For they did not know

Where its tears began
Where they would end

Did they ever fall?
Were they ever shed?

Did they taste of the sea?
Or were they bitter
With inexplicable regret?

Amidst the wailing winds,
The spirited seas

Lost in immensity

Denied …
simple dignity

Time rolled as a wheel without cessation
Or relief
And the wave grew and grew and grew
Till one day,

Came something new.

It was soft,
It was warm,
A home that it had never known

A shoulder that could bear a single tear to trickle upon itself
Unmolested, unencumbered
Simply Whole.

For a brief moment split wide open,
As vast and as old
As only the Universe could know,

What was once, now no more
A crescendo

Of
Stillness
Silence
A Descent

of
Dare I say peace?

It had come undone.

For the wave had finally found the shore.
And every grain of sand held it close to its chest

And whispered, in tight embrace:

At last,
At last,
At last …

She could finally rest.

March 1-7, 2019: A week of transformation, embodiment, and collective evolutionary potential! Venus enters Aquarius, Uranus enters Taurus, Mercury RX begins & The Pisces New Moon with Neptune & Vesta!!!

Astounding possibilities for change, transformation, evolution and embodiment meet us in the first week of March 2019!

Venus squares Uranus (first in Capricorn-Aries, then Aquarius-Taurus)

Venus shifts into Aquarius (March 1-2)

Uranus shifts into Taurus (March 5-6)

Mercury stations Retrograde at 29 Pisces (March 5)

The New Moon joins Neptune and Vesta in Pisces (March 6-7) …. and so on

Long story short: this is the time where we can consciously & collectively work together to re-write the script we share with this planet.

This is when we can most consciously look at the programs (from this life and prior ones) that have shaped our relationship to Mama-Gaia and the Feminine Principle that runs through all things (manifest and unmanifest).

This is the perfect time to be thinking through our more entrenched attitudes towards success, prosperity, manifestation, abundance, love, relationships, career, partnerships – and so on.

This is the perfect time to give ourselves permission to live outside those internalized constructs and in greater alignment with our innermost Authentic Being.

We have all been working on these themes for some time now: but it´s crunch time.

It is wise to pay attention to world events as they unfold over the next week – as not all of us are going to embrace these changes willingly.

Because Mercury is stationing Retrograde at 29 Pisces (arguably the most intensely karmic degree of the zodiac), we´re being asked to receive the new codes and vibrations coming in – and to sit with it.

It will take a few weeks for the true meaning of this energy to begin tor reveal itself. Don´t jump the gun in your interpretations.

The temptation to romanticize what we see and feel, or to overlay our older scripts and preconceptions upon this energy will be there.

Over the next few weeks, I recommend engaging in spiritual practices, meditation or simply practices of embodiment and being that allow us to shed karmic baggage.

It will allow us to truly see and engage with these new vibrations of energy – for what they truly are the evolutionary potential they represent .

(see video for more details and exposition on this)

Relationships in general are going to be a powerful medium of change – so watch who enters or leaves your life at this time – and how you choose to respond to them.

Last – but by no means least – the New Moon in Pisces conjuncts Neptune and Vesta between 15-16 degrees on March 6.

This is an extraordinary alignment. We are collectively being asked to commit to a more refined relationship with Spirit and the way we receive and interpret psychic information. It is a moment of true metaphysical potency.

(And that´s not something I say often – the sheer scope of potential during this New Moon is IMMENSE)

Which is why it is so important to align our energies in ways that do not repeat or romanticize old scripts, lifetimes or karmic patterns – that simply no longer resonate.

We´re going to be able to re-calibrate our individual, ancestral – and collective relationship with Spirit, Karma – and what it truly means to be of Service.

We can also use the same opportunity to entrench more of the old – and continue to romanticize abuse, sacrifice and martyrdom.

The choice is ours.

There are so many layers and levels to this energy – and not everyone necessarily works at this level of consciousness (which is totally okay).

You may feel this through physical symptoms, dreams, or just feelings that you may not necessarily be able to name. And some of you may be overwhelmed by it.

Remember that is also perfectly okay to want some support in times like this. Seek out facilitators, safe spaces, friends and communities who are able and willing to do this with/for you. Remember to honor their time and efforts in the process.

And that´s how we learn to coexist.

Blessings,

VENUS CONJUNCTS SOUTH NODE, SEXTILES MERCURY: POSSIBILITIES OF MANIFESTATION, RELEASE, DISSOLUTION AND RE-EMERGENCE (24-27 FEB 2019)

japanese-garden-437289_960_720

Venus is conjunct the (Mean) South Node at 24 Capricorn right now and will meet the (True) South Node at 25 Capricorn. For ease of reference, let´s just say Venus conjuncts the South Node closely between 24-25 Capricorn over the next few days (24-27 Feb 2019)
The South Node is a tricky one to describe. Sometimes it gives you a lot – and that ends  up locking you further into a karmic cycle. Sometimes it liberates you – but through renunciation (or at the very least – detachment from outcome). Sometimes that in itself paves the way for a hidden gift or connection from the past to re-emerge.
What actually manifests (or leaves) with a South Node connection really, really depends on the way you have navigated your karmic journey and whether it is oriented towards greater liberation.
When Venus and the South Node come along together as they are now, you can indeed see old energies returning. Especially in terms of partnerships (personal and professional), our relationship with finances, wealth and more generally – abundance.

Venus also signifies the way we understand our embodiment on this planet and the Feminine principle that moves through all things (and much more).

One of the most common interpretations of this alignment will be the return of old lovers … which will also happen.

It´s easy to romanticize what happens as being ´fated´ – and sometimes that´s a test of discernment.

But that doesn´t always mean it´s a good thing.
As I tell my clients, it´s fine dating someone you met 10,000 moons ago
But it´s not as cool when they´re the same jerk they were back then – and the same cycle between the two of you continue – and you keep wondering why this is so…
It is probably wiser to let karmic connections identify themselves before rushing to put a label on it.

Sometimes things might be wonderful – because they are ..

And sometimes it´s the trap of old karma in a shiny new bottle ….

Don´t be pessimistic about what comes up – but just keep your eyes open.

And be willing to see truth.

You may be pleasantly surprised.
For some of you, this same Venus-South Node alignment can mean the definite ending of certain connections or ways of thinking about abundance. Whatever the South Node takes away – tends to happen for your highest good – no matter how painful it may feel at the time.
Take the time to feel through whatever comes or goes – and the gamut of emotions that tends to arise. Honor the tears, the bittersweetness, the pain, the anger, the sadness, the joy – whatever it is that comes up for you.
How you respond or react is the lesson that presents itself. And your answer will set up the next karmic lesson (or lack thereof).
That´s probably the best way I can describe such a powerful alignment – especially with Pluto and Saturn so close by in Capricorn. The changes I describe here are not just affecting you, but everything on this Planet. Gaia herself will be speaking, and it is our choice as to whether we hear Her call.

Moreover, you are likely to have had some of what´s coming up for you foreshadowed by the Venus-Pluto alignment a few days ago. Due to technical reasons, I ended up uploading the video and associated article on Youtube only.

Here´s the link:

Coming back to the here-and-now,
Don´t be in a rush to commit to things (or their endings) one way or another. There are larger hands at work here – and it is wise to trust that flow and align yourself with it. In your prayers for guidance, call out to the Purest, Highest and Deepest Expression of Source energy.

View whatever comes up as an opportunity, rather than anything set in stone.

Ask the Universe what the situation you face represents and what it seeks to urge you to do?

Astrology has an answer for that too:
The answer the skies are pointing us towards is represented by the North Node in Cancer. It guides us towards finding true emotional security and a real sense of belonging in whatever you do decide to commit to / move away from / dissolve / manifest.
And sometimes it´s hard to follow that guiding principle because it forces us to move away from old, preconceived ideas or baggage that have taught us to think, feel and interpret life in certain ways.
On top of all this, Venus and the South Node sextile Mercury at 26 Pisces. This alignment creates a bridge between questions of relationship, manifestation, abundance, how we internalize and honor the Feminine Principle – and the ideas or answers we seek. Listen deeply to Spirit for it is giving you those answers.
It´s not something that emerges from the conscious mind, but the part of ourselves that is so deep that it connects to – and is part of – and influences – and is influenced by – the collective unconscious.
Honor your dreams, your intuition, your psychic impressions at this time – but also be mindful of the possibility of self-deception and illusion. This is because Mercury is in Pisces, but equally because it is just about to begin a powerful Retrograde at 29 Pisces within the next 9 days!
Give yourself the permission to walk on this bridge between Manifestation and Spirit – but be open to revisiting your ideas. Especially around March 11-14 and April 11-13 (as that is when Mercury is between 24-26 Pisces yet again).

Aim to be inclusive in whatever you do, in a way where you can honor the other – and still be You. There can be no true acceptance of the other if self-acceptance is neglected.

Mercury also trines the North Node in Cancer, reinforcing the suggestion that our answers shall arise from our intuition, rather than our conscious, logical mind. Get out of your own head and go back to what makes you feel safe, secured, and able to connect deeply with the wellspring of your own emotions.
Water related rituals will be especially effective at this time – as Water is the Great cleanser, dissolver, conduct, medium and life-giver. Just let things emerge as and when they need to, and try not to force things into a shape that your ego-Mind wants them to be as. That doesn´t help in the long run.
The Scorpio Moon will be coming round to activate this as a Grand Water Trine within the few hours. (That´s the 25th of Feb for those of you in the North America, and the 26th in Asia)
A lot of personal, ancestral and karmic energy is coming up now for processing and purging. Allow it to happen and support the process by drinking purified water. Elite noble shungite is the gemstone of choice for charging and purifying water for this purpose. You can also wear gemstones such as larimar, aquamarine, blue calcite, blue flourite, etc. to support the cleansing process.
Taking a salt water bath with cypress oil can also help, especially for those burdened by heavy emotions. Remember to honor the plant matter that became the oil and use sparingly. Remember to also check for contraindications before use.

As for salt, I prefer Himalayan rock salt for this purpose – it has an extraordinary vibration. But go with what you feel and what´s available. Natural salts are better, rather than that which has been chemically processed.
Thyme is also recommended, especially as a tea to help support the body in its releasing process.

So in summary…

Feel through it

Don´t be too quick to put a label on things

Allow the Universe to work through you and with you

This energy remains highly active in the skies for the next three days (24-27 February 2019). Though Venus continues to sextile Mercury till (approx) March 6 – it does shift in tone as it enters Aquarius on March 1st.

Generally speaking, its wiser to focus on releasing what no longer serves and to clear the decks as it were.  Remember that Mercury Retrogrades at the Anaretic (29th) degree of Pisces on March 5th! This isn´t the time to be committing to new decision, rather to the possibilities that they represent. Mercury will deliver us with  more information (and the opportunity to revisit things) through its Retrograde. On top of that we also have an upcoming Pisces New Moon with a POWERFUL Sun-Moon-Neptune-Vesta conjunction coming up on March 6th!

More on that closer to the time.

Blessings to All,

A GOLDEN RIVER OF HEALING ACROSS THE PLANET: NEW POSSIBILITIES EMERGE WITH THE VIRGO MOON (FEB ´19)

I’ve been trying to think about what I want to write for the Virgo Full Moon. I’ve looked at the esoteric asteroids (like Eurydice, Persephone, Kassandra, Apophis, Atlantis, Terspichore, etc.) and the very many alignments that can make this moon tricky to navigate. But truth be told, that’s not what this Moon feels like.

Sure, I can say make a list of things you need to do, eat healthy, take probiotics and vitamin B, be generous but take care of yourself as well… And that wouldn’t be off point. I can also tell you to be aware of overthinking and overanalyzing things, and to try not to nit-pick. Sleep if it just gets too much for you. That’s also valid. It’s generally good advice.

Energetically though, it doesn’t feel like the core of what this is about. There´s a couple of astrological factors as to why:

(1) Chiron has finally settled into Aries, completing a long cycle that began in the 1960s.
(2) Sirius was occulted by an asteroid on Feb 18th.
(3) The Full Moon conjuncts Regulus – the Heart of the Lion – a fixed star at 0 Virgo.
(4) The prior New Moon in Virgo (September 2018) opposed Neptune and opened gateways to new heights and depths of healing. Mars (3 Taurus) is close to where Uranus (2 Taurus) was back then. Chiron was and is at 0 Aries. We´re literally beginning to see the first harvest of that new wave of energy coming in.

It just feels like the old scripts that would normally work for this Moon don’t quite fit. (At least, in my perception – and truthfully that’s the only one I can speak for). And there are so very many astrological reasons as to why that is.

Coming from the heart, finding a space of gratitude within and without is the message I’ve been getting.

Simply creating the space to allow magic and healing to occur is enough. And that is something that has to start with the Heart/Dan Tien/Womb connection.

Even that feels like too crude a description. It feels like this Moon gives us a glimpse of the future we’re allowing to come into being, even though so many 3-D problems loom in a seemingly insurmountable way.

Despite so many reasons to be downcast and dismayed, something about the energy coming through just … brings hope. That there is a healing and an outcome we can align with, coming from the deepest aspects of our Source connection.

Of course different people will have different experiences. It comes down to how you work with these astrological windows of time and how you move through them (with the help of guides etc.).

The bottom line is that we are seeing how we can create waves and ripples of heart and gratitude centered healing – at a level we couldn’t before. Collectively speaking .

Even if you can’t immediately see it, you can trust it’s there. And call out to it. It’s almost like a golden river of energy running around the planet. And it’s powerfully healing, accessible to all.

I try my best to describe it in the video. Feel into it 🙂

It´s not something to dissect or analyze. It comes from a place that is deeper than emotions.

That’s the best way I can describe it. Trust it and allow it to make a difference in your life.

See what happens.

Blessings,
