2019-2020 : Humanity, Vulnerability & Dissolving the Capricornian Power Structure

I’ve been studying the energy of 2019 in particular and find it overwhelmingly Capricornian. I’ve spoken a lot about what that means in previous videos but today I want to focus on what we – as humans can do about it.

And the answer isn’t more Capricorn. It’s about doing what Capricorn fears.

Being humble. Being vulnerable. Being human.

Being wrong !

When we are able to admit we could be wrong, or did screw up, we open ourselves to the wonder that is humility.

You can be wrong. That doesn’t make you stupid. That doesn’t make you bad.

It means you’re more likely to be careful.
You’re more likely to be mindful.
And you’re more open to alternate possibilities .
And you’re more likely to be able to solve a problem because you’re willing to accept that it exists.

Denial and hubris are dangerous combinations. We see that all too clearly in this world, especially now.

Let’s work towards creating a better society in which being right or perfect isn’t the end-all-be-all.

Being human is.

It’s part of a multi-pronged approach we need to take internally and externally as we navigate these Saturn-in-Capricorn years.

The power structure is changing, but what will it become ?

That’s in your hands (and hearts)

Jupiter-Neptune square (13-14 Jan 2019) w. Great Attractor & Thereus: The Path of the Fierce, Compassionate Heart – Beyond Binaries

Jupiter will square Neptune at 14 Sagittarius-Pisces on 13th Jan 2019, 18:57 UTC. Jupiter also conjuncts the Great Attractor at 14 Sagittarius and trines Thereus at 13 Leo. These alignments amplify the J-N square and offer specific windows of opportunity and challenge.

All of this energy is currently being amplified by the (ongoing) Sun-Pluto conjunction at 20 Capricorn, exact today. It forces us to look at the Truth of whatever presents itself to us, and not settling for surface-level answers. The upcoming Lunar Eclipse in Leo also adds greater context. But let´s get back to J-N

Jupiter is in its home sign of Sagittarius, lighting the way towards potential paths, truths, paradigms and understandings. It favours travel, immigration, academia, religious institutions, rhetoric, philosophy, astrology – anything that can ´expand your horizons´ physically or mentally. It corresponds to the archetype of the Hierophant in the Tarot as the One Who Shows You The Way.

All this sounds great, but Jupiter is famous for its issues with excess. It fans the flames of passion and righteous conviction about whatever truth one explores and can exacerbate polarization and division. Rather than a collective chorus that sings the Songs of Many Truths, we hear a cacophony of each singing their own version of My Truth Is Best, I Have The Best Truths, Let Me Tell You Why My Truths Are The Truest…

So really, Jupiterian energy in its abundance and expansiveness can be a mixed blessing. Teachers do appear to show us the way, but we then need to ask ourselves to check whether their feet is made of clay. Possibilities emerge, but we then need to check in and see if this resonates with our innermost Spirit, or what our Ego-Mind thinks it needs, wants, and desires.

All of this is taken up ten notches in intensity as Jupiter conjuncts The Great Attractor.
The Great Attractor is a massive gravitational anomaly at 14 Sagittarius. Whilst scientists are beginning to discover that such fields are not that uncommon in the Universe, the Great Attractor still packs a punch. For comparison: The Galactic Center (of the Milky Way, near Sagittarius A*) has the mass of 4.3 million Suns / solar masses. However, The Great Attractor has the mass of 10 Million Billion Suns … (That´s 10 to the power of 16 or 17). It´s immensely huge.

Translating the influence of the Great Attractor into astrological terms has not been an easy task, though Philip Sedgwick´s work on the subject is probably the best known. My take on his writings is that it opens us up to structured paths of Truth that take us to certain decision points in life. Sometimes it can be a unifying, at other times, a polarizing experience – and it comes down to which reflection of Truth crystallizes each person´s experience of Reality.

I have placements near the GA and know this is as lived experience: The GA brings an invisible, yet powerful flow of push-and-pull. You are drawn towards, or become the beacon for others to be drawn towards, different paths of Truth and possibility. Living with a strong GA placement requires you to (as much as possible) remember that what you represent is not about you, and what others see and do in response to the information you present is also not about you. At best, your role in that capacity is a signpost. Others will be drawn to the Truth that streams through you – and at the end of the day, what they do with it – is also not about you, one way or another.

So when you take it all together, this is a going to be a Massive Search For Truth.

Which sounds great, but you can also see how this can be used in other ways.

Especially when we pop Neptune-in-Pisces into the Mix.

When Neptune searches for Truth, it gets lost in the Waters of Illusion. Because it´s not meant to Search for anything. It simply IS.

Neptune flows through whatever there is without judgement, requirement, or expectation. Its energy is unconditional. Its compassion is infinite as are its metaphysical abilities and gifts. It is lofty, inspired, and aims to bring us all to a state of perfect One-Ness. It is fragile, impermanent, ethereal and unable to exist (for long) in the manifest realm without changing its nature.

In practice, what tends to happen is that we get caught up in the bright lights, the mystic smoke, the Maya (Illusion itself). We confuse the Sun´s rays reflected on the Cosmic Waters to be The Sun itself, and plunge in on account of our own beliefs and perceptions.
Several lifetimes later, we may end up looking up in that AHA moment.
Whilst Jupiter-and-Neptune-squared can be a very creative, dynamic invitation to explore Pathways Of Truth That Lead Us To Spirit Within … it can just as easily ensnare us into false beliefs that take us further away from our True Selves.
Because are conditioned to see spiritual teachings and blessings as coming through particular symbols, colors, names and frequencies – sometimes we get caught up in the appearance of what we think is Sacred, rather than the vibration that is present in and of itself.

I´ve written about this before as the False Light Phenomenon and would urge you to revisit this article for a more in-depth treatment on the subject. Link: https://wp.me/p4OUNS-2A2

This also means that any Truth-Bearers, or ones who Show The Way may get negatively projected on, gaslight or somehow ´pushed away´ from the seeker they can otherwise help. Sometimes knowing who is in alignment is a task in and of itself.

The moment we let go of the expectation that awakening and truth must look and feel a certain way, we can actually allow ourselves to go into the hidden, dark corners of self and light a lamp within. It is here – in the Shadow of our Selves that are greatest strengths, fears, allies and (perceived) weaknesses lie. And we can access this once the Conscious Mind and Ego has finally Surrendered to the Knowing that It Does Not Know, Own, or Control Truth.

At best, in the human realm, we can lay claim to expressions or vessels of such in which we have invested our time and energy – but the energy of Truth itself is the birthright of all.

In practice, the Jupiter-and-Neptune square asks us to sit with all of the impulses that arise now and to go within. Pause, detach, breathe and observe.

No matter how tempted you are to take the huge leap forwards, give yourself time to see if what you are thinking and doing is truly aligned within.

Many realms will connect with ours at this time, and not all contact or communication we get is necessarily of the Highest and Deepest order. It takes experience and patience to discern through it all.

Plus, you´re going to get the chance to revisit the Jupiter and Neptune square two more times in this year.   Take the time to wait, and watch – before leaping.

The final component I´d like to talk about today is the Jupiter-Thereus (13 Leo) trine. For those of you familiar with my writings, you know that Thereus is the hunter-stalker. The one who lies in wait and watches. The stalker who derives power from the knowledge that somehow you know he´s there, but you just can´t put your finger on who and why. The predator´s energy comes from the fact his victims are not fully aware of the danger – and yet there is a part of the subconscious that stays in the vibration of fear and extreme caution.

In practice, this alignment brings up our personal and collective stories of sexual abuse, or any kind of energetic parasitism that has kept others unable to truly express themselves. Childhood terrors and fears may come up for processing at this time as well.

Stay away from judgements if possible as we all tend to go through the predator-victim cycle in the long journey of the Soul, across different lifetimes. Healing and the breaking of the cycle of shame and abuse comes when we can deal with a situation with that recognition within. Boundaries still need to be made clear, those in healing still need to be kept safe or empowered to face what drains them – but we need not feed the negative Ego in doing so.

As we allow these energies to come to the surface, or to process them in whatever way we need to, we allow for collective healing.

Finding a creative outlet such as dancing, playing, painting, singing will work very well to release this energy. Gentle movements to stabilize the hips, coccyx, SI joint and that general area of the body will also help us process what comes up.

The body at the end of the day is the vessel that helps us assimilate and manifest this energy. Do not underestimate its power.

In summation, the next few days are going to see the intensification of these themes. The energy can feel frighteningly clear at times, or confusingly waffly at others. It´s a mixed bag. Remember that the Lunar Eclipse in Leo is just around corner as well.

For those of you just reading the text, remember to watch the video as well as it gives more subjective context.

Be Blessed.

SUN SEXTILE NEPTUNE IN YOD (FINGER OF FATE) WITH THEREUS: A BRIDGE BETWEEN MATTER AND SPIRIT, FORGED AT THE LION´S HEART (CapEclipsePrep)

 

This is the time to look at your greater vision and to see if it aligns with your deepest spiritual values, your truest passions and your compassion for all things (including yourself).

This is the time to consider whether your long-term plans contribute to the creation of spiritually-aligned structures to hold and transmit energy that empower … or enslave.

And this energy will last for the next 2-3 days, just in time for the Capricorn Solar Eclipse!

Many deceptions and distortions are coming to the surface at this time. Especially those who seek to find power over others through the guise of spirituality – or who mask their intent through spiritual rhetoric or the projection of high-frequency energy.

Take your time to look at the energy of whosoever or whatsoever you choose to work with. Consider whether what you are seeing is truth, or carefully presented and styled illusion – or whether it is simply what you want to see. Sometimes these choices are not made from the ego, but from energy bodies that have not realized that they can step out of the patterns of karma, and pre-incarnation agreements to suffer (and re-create suffering).

Other astrological bodies make this alignment even more potent and relevant.

Icarus conjuncts the Sun at 13 Capricorn. This makes the task of looking power (within or without) in the eye a little more daunting.

We are asked to look at our fears surrounding success and to question their validity.

We are asked to look at the parts of ourselves that seek socially sanctioned measures of success at any cost – be it to self or other.

We are asked to look at the spiritual and material energetic inheritances we carry and how they influence our perception of life and what our subtle bodies permit in, in the name of karma.

The Sun and Neptune sextile has its midpoint between 13-14 Aquarius. Those with placements here can see which body is present as a fulcrum, pathway or mediator between the Sun and Neptune.

Asteroid Klotho is now at 13 Aquarius. She gives us the means to re-write the script or narrative surrounding the work we do. This may be the time to level-up the conceptual language you use to do your spiritual work. If your current articulation brings you to a dead-end, try different perspectives.

This alignment becomes even more charged with Thereus at 13 Leo as it then forms a Yod (Finger of Fate). The Yod alignment means that these karmic currents will be easier to access – and to make a breakthrough with. Whether you reproduce the old, or create the new – is up to you. This energy will play out in all of us, all beings in this solar system – but we feel it at differing levels of intensity, depending on what we came to do here and how.

Thereus focuses on patterns of hidden predation, covert surveillance and fear-mongering. It is the kind of abuser that draws power from the victim through psychological means before finally striking when they are sufficiently weakened. The abuser (themselves) may be someone who feels that their attack is somehow vindicated, be it by their peers, their feelings of insecurity, false entitlement or jealousy. It may have nothing to do with you personally, rather what you represent. Your awareness of the ´attack´ or ´attacker´ may suddenly come into view at this time.

Whilst compassion is key in understanding this dynamic, it is the prerequisite to detaching from it. That makes you less vulnerable to such attacks and less likely to be hooked through your own feelings around the matter.

For some of you, these challenges will require you to take action at the psychic and physical level. Do not ignore whatever presents itself to you now, but do not feed into the negative hooks that seek to give it power. Acknowledge it, take the steps to make sure you are energetically clear from it. And empower others to do the same in ways that seem appropriate to you.

Remember that your Heart and Soul is not meant to be a battery for others, or a punching bag for the insecure. Honoring these boundaries does not make you a bad or a selfish person. You need to preserve your vital essence to do what you came to do here.

To work with others at a spiritual level, drawing these lines is key. Allowing others to play out destructive behavior does not help anyone. Seeing them with compassion as beings on their own journey does not mean that you take abuse.

It just means you get to walk away without needing to hold onto resentment or hate.

Whatever comes up for you now, remember to bring it back to who YOU are.

Express what you need to and allow your body to move through the emotions that came. Dance, play, sing, chant, create – do what makes you come alive despite whatever it is that seeks to break your spirit, or make you doubt your worth and validity in the world. Your creativity and willingness to simply Be invalidates attempts to disconnect you from your playful, passionate, creative self.

And that´s the kind of energetic structure we need to build in the world.

Overall:

The Yod created by Sun, Icarus, Neptune, Klotho and Thereus can empower us to find a deeper, more aligned and more authentic expression of ourselves.

A self that can dissolve generational or past-life contracts that have allowed (now: obsolete) structures of limitation to be placed on itself. That may require adopting new languages or concepts to shift into more aligned paradigms.

It can also help us create a more aligned, spiritual, compassionate and meaningful relationship with children, those in the public eye, leaders, lovers and creative collaborators.

It can help us withdraw from toxic cycles of abuse and victimization without adding fuel to the fire.

At a personal, and at a systemic level.

By itself, this Yod is a whopper. It is even more so considering the Solar Eclipse in Capricorn coming up (Jan 5-6), Mercury´s proximity to the Galactic Center, the Sagittarius´ Moon trine to Eris in Aries, and so on.

Remember that the seeds we weave in Eclipses revisit us in 18-year cycles.

Use this opportunity wisely.

Suggested Approaches and Tools:
Carnelian, Rhodochrosite – Gemstones (Placed on the sacral or heart chakra, or wherever appropriate)
Frankincense – Essential Oil (Check contraindications first)
Activities – Meditation, Creative Pursuits, Affirmations, etc.
Listen to the suggested practices in the video as well

MERCURY CONJUNCTS THE GALACTIC CENTER W. SUN AND SATURN IN CAPRICORN (Jan 2-4, 2019)

Blessings to everyone! Mercury conjuncts the Galactic Center today at 27 Sagittarius. This makes aspects to Uranus in Aries, North Node in Cancer and South Node in Capricorn – and Chiron in Pisces.

Long story short, this is THE time for you to align deeply within. Focus on that space of stillness through which you connect to the galactic womb.

The Mayans understood the Galactic Center as this Cosmic Womb. Reconnecting with it is the birthright of all, irrespective of race, sex, age or gender.

As Mercury is also conjunct Ixion, be wary of authoritarian agendas that seek to limit your access to Inner Knowledge. Especially if they appear in the guise of The Teacher.

Your connection within liberates you from your fears and illusions.

No matter how powerful the teacher, their role is to help you awaken that knowledge within. Not to own it, or control it.

An exceptional teacher can help to protect or guide you as you reach that inner space, but they are not responsible for your journey.

Accepting your role as sovereign Universal Co-Creator also requires acceptance of the fact that your life, and your choices are in your hands. We are all at different levels of accepting and embodying this principle.

And that is totally fine too. To each, their own path.

As Saturn is conjunct the Sun in Capricorn, a set of secondary questions arises – once you get the beep from Spirit.

What do I do with this knowing?
What do I build with it?
What or who am I sacrificing to build it – and is that in alignment?
What is the long-term outcome of all this?

Trust your journey. Work with benevolent guides.

If in doubt, call upon energies such as Archangel Michael or Archangel Metatron for protection and stability.

There´s a lot to be done, especially within this upcoming Capricorn Solar Eclipse.

Take the time to align within. Go deeper than you thought you could.

Back to the space where you meet and become the stars (once more).

Blessings,

Dr. Bairavee Balasubramaniam PhD
The Sky Priestess

 

*** This alignment is especially strong between January 2-3 in the Americas, and Jan 3-4 in Asia/Australia. Remember that´s it part of a wave of energy building up to the Eclipse between Jan 5-6, 2019.

NEW YEAR´S GREETINGS FOR 2019: CAPRICORN LESSONS

Blessings everyone. We head into the New Year with the Sun nearing its conjunction with Saturn. This is the time to build things, commit to the long-term creation of energetic structures of power and to discover our sense of inner sovereignty.

It is also the time to be mindful of not using others to attain our goals and to ensure that we stand tall and walk with purpose.

Ultimately all that we create now is to build a better tomorrow for our children, and their descendants. (Alongside the children of all other species on this planet).

This is the sole moral justification for the kind of power that Capricorn is able to wield.

Greater inner discernment is required – now more so than ever with Jupiter in Sagittarius preparing to square Neptune in Pisces.

It´s easier to convince yourself of what you want to hear, in other words – so double check your own processes.

Is your ´gut instinct´ coming from a place of alignment?
Or is it ego wearing a pretty dress?

Is your heart open and your emotional body happy with your choices?

Or have you shut it down?

(My Libran brother inspired me to add this:)

Have I shared my power and rewards fairly to those who have worked for it?

(It´s a very important point. Capricorn can get pretty addicted to its ´rightness´ in the world, without thinking about anyone else)

Finally …

Does your vision for the future include a commitment to compassion?

This is a powerful checklist. And one you can keep referring back to over the year.

All this comes in the wider build-up to the Solar Eclipse in Capricorn between Jan 5-6, 2019.

Take the time to tune in before committing to major decisions.

If engaging with very powerful people or institutions, ensure that they/you come from a place of integrity, rather than self-serving ego. This will be very relevant for the next few days.

Especially if they don the mantle of authority, or claim seniority or dominion over others.

So keep your eye on the ball.

In short:

Choose what you want to build wisely. How. Why. When. With Whom.

And hopefully your answers will lead to the building of a better, sustainably supported future.

One that all of us can find joy, peace, happiness and compassion in.

Together.

Blessings for 2019.

Video: On Inner Discernment & Alignment

 

Blessings, everyone.

There´s a lot to catch up on and I wanted to share a few of the lessons and teachings that have been coming my way over the past few days. This is something to be experienced, rather than dissected, so I´ll let the video speak for itself.

Dr. Bairavee Balasubramaniam PhD

GALACTIC AWAKENINGS (18-20 December 2018)

Yesterday and today have been particularly intense as the Sun has been conjunct the Galactic Center (27 Sagittarius) whilst squaring Chiron (27 Pisces), trining Uranus (28 Aries) – and making aspects to a bunch of other asteroids.

In this video I focus more so on the energy of awakening that is coming through and ways to handle that experience as a human being.

It´s something to be experienced rather than analyzed.

The thing to take home from all this is that we are being guided into a deeper alignment with Truth. At the human level, each truth may look different. But from the cosmic perspective, it all coheres – it becomes One.

Hence, the colour spectrum. 

Humility will go a long way at this time as there is so much to be learned and un-learned.

Especially when it comes to our collective attitudes surrounding healing, wounding, repeating karmic cycles and punitive attitudes towards what a ´spiritual´ being must look like.

Uranus will be making sure that opportunities to awaken to a deeper truth will come about. Allow the lesson to be gracefully received. But remember that sometimes it comes in a disruptive manner. Be open to seeing the blessing either way.

People will reveal their true colours at this time. Even if they´re not what you´d like them to be, remember that there is a larger Cosmic Plan. And that will take time to reveal itself.

It takes all colours to make up the rainbow spectrum.

In short:

Breathe. Ground. Align with your Guides. Listen. Allow. Release. Absorb. Release. Repeat.

We´ve got a very intense Solstice coming up, so pay attention 

Blessings,

Dr. Bairavee Balasubramaniam PhD

A New Chapter of My Professional Journey

 

48375884_283260899000267_2037778221776240640_n

Dear Friends,

I am pleased to announce that I am starting a new job effective today.

I am going to be the Business Development Manager at Shakthi Varma Healing Center in Petaling Jaya, Malaysia.

The center is currently run by my brother Healer Mahawin and aims to re-introduce a long-forgotten healing art known as Thoduvarmam (in Tamil). We renamed it Varma Touch Therapy and have been offering diploma level courses for the past few years at the center.

I´ve been in and out and doing my own thing, and contributing here and there, but it feels like this is where my attention is needed right now.

The Center also offers Gayathri Sadana (Spiritual Training in the art of chanting the Gayathri Mantra), Celestial Healing (incl. Reiki) classes, Whole Body Rejuvenation, Ana Pana Sati (Tibetan Breathing Techniques) and other spiritually themed classes.

We work closely together with healers from India, one of whom I´ve introduced to you before as Dr. B. P. Pranav of Chennai. I´ve attended several of his courses and find him to be an excellent teacher.

The Shakthi Varma Healing Center is actually the third-generation of healing/motivational centers created by my father Thannambikai Balasubramaniam. As I´ve shared with you before, he was the person who coined the term ´Thanmunaippu Payirtchi´ (Self-Confidence Seminar) in the Tamil language and made motivational speaking accessible to the Malaysian-Indian community.

He started with Thannambikai Maiyam (Self-Confidence Center) in the 1990s, at which I was a fellow trainer and the youngest motivational speaker in the country – in addition to being office administrator, proofreader, copy-editor and so on. His efforts moved and transformed thousands of families in this country – creating an incredible legacy in his community. He then went on to found Sakthi Maiam Center a few years ago and then decided that it was time to devote himself to other pursuits.

Now … Back to the present …

My brother, Healer Mahawin, is someone I´ve been working with for about 10 years, in honoring and nurturing each other´s spiritual gifts. We´ve travelled a lot together, physically and spiritually. And we have developed our own understanding of what spirituality looks like in practice.

Mind you, these were not easy relationships to forge. I come from a family of extremely strong personalities. But thankfully we´ve got heart.

In this center, I´m going to be helping out with business development activities. To help it reach a new kind of audience, potentially an international one. I´m going to be helping out with the setting of policies and practices drawn from my own years of experience of running a spiritually-oriented business with an international audience.

That and playing with kids who visit the center. One little fellow who came by was an astute astronomer in the making and we ended up talking about Einstein-Rosen bridges and the age of the Universe and all that kind of stuff. There were lots of whiteboard marker drawings involved. He was thrilled.

For some context: I used to work with a lot of kids, especially in helping them find their own paths to creative self-expression. This was work I did alongside my mother, who is an innovator in childhood learning strategies.

I´m planning on starting similar seminars and learning camps again, especially for kids.

We´re really the starting point of the business so it´s going to be a lot of long hours. And really putting in the extra effort.

And on top of it all, I plan on introducing some spiritual and astrological workshops as The Sky Priestess 

So you know where to find me.

Truthfully, that is my unique social contribution amongst other brilliant minds and dedicated family members.

I´ll be doing what I usually do here on FB and Internetland – and the proposed subscription model will also begin in 2019, along with online seminars of mine that can be purchased.

I´m a Cappy – we thrive when we do work that we love .

Blessings and Love

MERCURY IN SAGITTARIUS (December 12, 2018 – January 4, 2019)

 

 

Mercury´s exit from Scorpio has not been uneventful. Even at 0 Sagittarius, it continues to inconjunct Uranus at 28 Aries, trines Chiron at 27 Pisces and North Node at 28 Cancer.
 
Basically it continues to pull out those aspects of our personal, familial, ancestral and collective healing that we´ve been working on through Mercury-in-Scorpio.
And truths keep on coming, but they´re raised to a more visible layer of our consciousness.
 
Our task through this transit – should we choose to accept it – is to find paths of direction, or trajectories for movement. This will continue to guide us throughout 2019.
 
So it´s a big deal.
The thing about Sagittarius is that it takes no prisoners with its respective idea of what truth needs to look like. And sometimes it can be very uncompromising, especially when faced with other conflicting truths.
 
The way forwards is to remember that we are all souls in search of truth. And that each soul has a different take on the whole thing.
 
Perhaps, when all of our paths are put together, it looks like an Absolute Truth from the Universal Perspective. In human terms, it means that we each come with our own way of accessing and expressing information.
 
This Mercury-in-Sagittarius transit will be rather volatile for those whose identities have become woven into the larger questions and the individuals or teams representative of certain answers. That applies to politics, religion, spiritual philosophies, teachers and teachings, and so on.
 
Just remember that these are ways we navigate: this is not who we are.
 
This also applies to the people we interact with.
 
A person´s particular relationship with Truth depends on what they have experienced before, what they are conditioned into, and how much work they have done to become conscious of it.
 
A person´s beliefs are a reflection of themselves, rather than the validity of those beliefs.
 
If we bear this in mind, we will be able to remember that we are indeed dealing with other souls. And perhaps, it will make us a little kinder for it.
 
Sagittarian energy can be rather judgemental – and you know what … it´s still ego, even if a person´s perspective can be shown to be ´correct´.
 
Try to use this Mercurian energy to find Truths that allow you to go further in your journey, rather than to tear others apart.
 
Whilst there are times and spaces in which it is better to agree to disagree, or to simply stay silent – there are times in which silence condones unspeakable evil.
 
This will be a time in which we are tested to see whether can make those distinctions.
 
We will be seeing a key point of activation as Mercury conjuncts Jupiter on December 21st at 9 Sagittarius. This will inspire some and inflame others.
 
December 24-25th sees Mercury squaring Neptune (13 Pisces) and conjuncting the Great Attractor (14 Sagittarius). This will present us with the test between ego-based and spirit-based truth. One will lead us to illusion, and other will lead us to clarity. Look past surface level-truths and preconceptions to find your answers.
 
As this coincides with Christmas, be very mindful when having family over – especially if they have very divergent spiritual, philosophical or political beliefs. You might have the kind of family that thrives on healthy debate, or one that can´t handle diverse viewpoints.
 
Remember that we are all people. We all bleed. We all cry. We all have pain.
 
But most importantly, remember that
 
Compassion must exist alongside Truth.
 
At least if you´re on some kind of a spiritual journey.
 
That doesn´t mean you have to sugar-coat things, or avoid difficult conversations – but it asks you to come from a place of understanding – rather than (purely) righteous fury or judgement.
 
Sometimes a person needs to work through a belief we may find unsavoury to find their own answer. That´s their path, their journey, their karma.
 
But be mindful of judgement in the guise of being ´holier than thou´.
 
You´re on your path, your journey, your karma.
 
Remember that we are all people. We all bleed. We all cry. We all have pain.
 
In the first week of January, we are going to see Mercury conjuncting The Galactic Center (27 Sagittarius), squaring Chiron (28 Pisces), trining Uranus (28 Aries). Mercury will then leave Sagittarius, entering Capricorn on January 4th.
 
On January 8th, Mars (4 Aries) will square Mercury-in-Capricorn. This will already ask us to pick up the momentum, make our grand ideals more concrete and to start to work towards them.
 
That´s a lot of energy for the start of the New Year.
 
More points click into place, more paths reveal themselves.
 
Of course there will be further opportunities for realignment throughout 2019 as Jupiter makes its transit through Sagittarius.
 
But Mercury-in-Sagittarius is certainly one of the key transits that will help us set the tone of it all.
 
That about covers the basics of this transit.
 
This is a FANTASTIC time to think about your plans for the year ahead and the directions you want to move towards. Some of you will want to learn more, teach more, travel more (inwards or outwards) or to emigrate elsewhere.
 
Keep your eyes on the ball and stay away from the hedonistic lure of living purely in philosophy.
You´ll be asked to act on those words and ideas – and soon.
 
Stay True. Stay Kind. Stay Authentic.

Changes In The Way I Share My Work: Partial Paywall, Seminars, Etc.

Dear Friends,

I´ve been holding space for a discussion on parity and making the work sustainable on my personal profile. And many have contributed valuable suggestions as to how I can continue to help people, without running dry.

This work as you can imagine takes a lot more time and resources than it looks. Sessions, whilst it may mean a half hour for you, means (in some cases) an hour or two of recovery for me.

Working with spirit at high intensity is not something that I can sustainably do for my physical health, and equally for my personal finances.

And you know what I´m like: I do not compromise on quality.

I have family responsibilities and a college loan to think about and so I am having to re-think how I do things.

I did try requesting donations, but literally a handful of people came forth. And I am absolutely grateful to them for wanting to ease my physical existence on this plane.

I cannot hold it against anyone for not contributing because we have collectively become used to the idea that labour online is free.

Otherwise I´m going to have to go back into academia, public speaking or find some other way to make ends meet – and that means bringing this work to a close.

My responsibilities have increased as of late, prompting all these considerations.

You should know me enough by now to know that I don’t share what I share with you for money. You couldn’t make me do it for money, fame , praise, etc.

But I can’t keep doing this if I’m not fiscally supported by the community that I give my time to. There isn’t a balance.

What I’m thinking about is a partial paywall . There will be a component of the work that remains freely accessible.

I do not believe in denying people access to a basic minimum of guidance on the basis of whether they earn enough.

I trust that the people who support me will also support this move. And that people who can pay will not choose to freeload.

Because frankly, people expect too much. You give one thing free, and everything else is expected to follow. This kind of entitlement I will call out, whilst pursuing a path that allows me to maintain a clear conscience. That’s the best I can do.

I’m going to be introducing tiered membership systems and seminars you can purchase and stream online.

I’ll try to keep these reasonably priced, without compromising on my own needs and worth.

I have to think about this stuff. I can’t afford to think about what I want in a vacuum and expect others to match those prices. Life isn’t just about us.

So this process is the best I can do. And hope a fair balance is struck. And the right people are drawn to work with someone who works in this way xoxo

Blessings,
