LIGHTING THE WAY FORWARDS: Sun conjunct Uranus in Taurus (22-23 April 2019)

Let there Be Light. Let there Be the Awakening of Collective Consciousness. Let there Be Truth. Let there Be Love.

That´s the theme of the Now. That´s the energy coming through, straight from Source – and the Earth-Mother Herself.

This is an energy that allows our Higher Mind to access new codes, signatures and frequencies that help us dissolve more entrenched energetic blueprints. This applies to our bodies, our breath, our bloodlines, and the way we have collectively manifest a certain type of relationship with the planet.

For the world to change, the energetic permissions and collective contracts that have made it so need to be completely dissolved. This is the Uranian promise, if you allow yourself to work with the changes it asks of us.

And that requires grounding, openness, receptivity – and the dissolution of the Ego-Self that insists that it KNOWS!

Much if not all of the resistance, density, and the horrors we see happening around us comes from that part of the collective psyche that refuses to let change happen. It holds on too strongly to the values and ideals of the past, and the financial arrangements that make that profitable to keep in place.

All of us are aware this change needs to happen – especially in virtual communities that keep sharing this information – over and over – and over again. But it gets to the head, and the head enters its own loop.

Your answers have always been in your body. And in its sacred connection with space, time and the Earth. Listen to what it has to say and allow it to absorb the energy coming in. It´s been doing that for a while, but now – more so than ever – is the time to trust it.

If you need a gemstone tip, I´d say go with amber.

Each of us are, in our own ways, Light-Bearers – and the challenge is to realize our sacred work is Everywhere. It´s not when it´s convenient, or easy to do so. It´s staring that pain and collective disconnection in the eye – with the presence and awareness of the Divine Spark that you are, we are, I am, all of us …. already are.

To be very clear …

There´s a Light in ´Dark´ spaces. There is pure beauty, poetry and connection in the Blackness of the Cosmic … and certainly in the dark waters of the ancestral womb. An invitation to embody the Light is not an invitation to turn a blind eye to what scares us, or makes us feel uncomfortable. Sometimes that´s where our greatest teachers and gifts and joys are.

I would highly recommend watching the movie Shazam to see the kinds of work within we each need to do to prepare ourselves. There´s a lot there to unpack – and it fits the Uranian theme (lightning).

Blessings and Joy to All of You, especially in these times.

A very quick note and video for the 2nd Full Moon in Libra (April 19, 2019)

Well. I have been analysing, thinking, feeling, being about this Full Moon at 29 Libra.

My honest instinct is that it would be a little premature to talk about the energy. It’s a precursor to other alignments soon to occur.

Let’s revisit things in 2-3 days’ time.

Key points :

Say no to duality, or dualistic thought

You’re right, I’m wrong / I’m right you’re wrong arguments are Pyrrhic Victories

Feel into the underlying unity of things, beneath the appearance of discord

And let the Universe do its thing.

For now, observe – feel – wait.

Blessings

HOLD YOUR HORSES, REMEMBER YOUR COMPASSION: MULTIPLE PLANETARY SHIFTS BETWEEN 16-22 APRIL 2019

Within the next 12 hours, Mercury will enter Aries, pushing it out of its shadow phase. The drums are beating and the pulse is stirring.

You may want to give things just a little more time before committing to new paths of action and re-action.

In the video, I focus more on the energy and experience of all of this – using popular re-action to the burning of Notre Dame as a focal point. There´s a lot to unpack there, and many lessons to be learnt, such as:

which sites we value, and which we choose to ignore
how the symbol of the Divine Feminine, especially in the form of Kali, gets co-opted as a channel for rage, rather than compassion
why compassion (a.k.a. the life-force of The Divine Feminine frequency) is key in the breaking and re-making of the world
and so on …

In this article, I focus more on the planetary alignments and shifts as they occur.

We have a Libra Full Moon coming up on April 18th (+1 day if in Asia/Australia)

That calls for some amount of temperance, balance and maintaining composure in an effort to find greater justice.

We see Mercury conjunct Chiron at 3 Aries on April 19, asking us to be mindful of our role in patterns of healing and/or wounding.

Try not to jump the gun in the way we react to situations that come our way – and to avoid the temptation of defining the self primarily in terms of resistance / opposition to another.

The Self is more than anger or righteous indignation. But that´s not always easy to remember when you´ve been told to hold it in or deny that it exists….

That being said, people do tend to get hooked into narratives of completion, rescue or redemption – and that just ends up eating at your sense of being over time. It´s a lot to think about.

On April 20th, we see the Sun exiting Aries and entering Taurus. Venus exits Pisces and enters Aries shortly thereafter. Juno follows suit, leaving Gemini and entering Cancer.

That´s a lot right there. The Sun begins its journey help you find greater solidity, self-worth, abundance and comfort (in a balanced way). Venus asks you to shine your fierce Spirit even brighter than ever before. Mercury asks you to take that big leap into the Unknown, charting new territory. Juno asks you to begin a journey to find home, family and land that supports you and your spiritual growth. (Ideally in ways that do not cause

On April 22nd, the Sun and Uranus are conjunct at 2 Taurus. This is powerful time to re-ignite your focus on what brings you joy, stability and groundedness.

That´s all about breaking away from old, unhealthy patterns and discovering healthier ones. Perhaps even communities that can support you (or the recognition that the ones you´re in can´t or won´t).

It´s just a big time. Give things about a week to settle down before finalizing any big moves. Or at the very least the next three days.

No one ever said that birthing a New World was going to be a fun process for everyone. Honor the work you have done so far and allow the Universe to show you the next step forwards.

Blessings,

Grand Fire Trine : Follow That Heart-Fire (14-15 April 2019)

A reactivation of the Pluto-Node-Eris T-square through a Grand Fire trine with Sun, Eris, Jupiter, The Galactic Center, Leo Moon & Osiris.

Resurrect your innermost creative expression, coming from the Heart. It is wise to remember that language tends to conflate the vibration of Heart-centered expression with more egoic, transactional understandings of Love – so really feel into this one.

It’s not about what you expect or desire – it’s about how your inner light shines – and keeps shining irrespective of what others may think of it.

That’s not always a comfortable process, but stepping into the Truth of the Self isn’t exactly a joyride …

Getting to the Truth and Core of your being isn’t an intellectual exercise … It’s an experiential one. I can dissect each aspect till the cows come home and you still wouldn’t be close to actually getting it with the mind.

Follow your Heart-Fire

Let the Heart lead the way forwards.

And we’ll see a new way emerge…

One that we cannot even begin to comprehend.

More of this to come as the Sun trines the Galactic Center in three days’ time ! (Just before the Libra Full Moon)

RETURN TO GRACE AND ALIGNMENT WITHIN: GUIDANCE FOR THE TIMES (11 APRIL 2019)

There are some incredibly intense alignments happening together right now. The veils are pretty thin right now and the level of intensity is off the charts.

I’m not going to romanticize these aspects nor am I going to vilify them. It is what it is.

This article gives you a summary of the energy in terms of astrology. The video gives you the feel of the energy. Work with both.

Start of Jupiter Retrograde
Jupiter trined Eris
Sun squared Saturn 
Venus conjunct Neptune
Mercury trined Node
Pluto square Eris
Pluto conjunct South Node

It’s hard to summarize how that plays out.

Simply because so much comes down to one’s karmic contracts and their prior choices.

(and no … That’s not a victim shaming thing. – this is more about being mindful of energetic cause and effect)

The start of Jupiter Retrograde asks us to revisit and consolidate our lessons, growth and experiences since Jan 2019. We will be in this process of review till mid-August 2019. Go back to the lessons, look at what was missed in haste – and fill in the missing gaps. Honor your Teachers and seek out new perspectives as appropriate.

Jupiter Retrograde trined Eris throws a spanner in the works. Situations of discord and seeming chaos can come along : not to punish us, but to ask us to acknowledge all aspects of what our energy brings to a situation. It can be highly triggering.

The Sun – Saturn square tests our resolve and clarity of will. It’s not about prolonging burden, but having the courage to break through it. And to be responsible as to how it’s done.

Venus conjunct Neptune is about being able to align your material experience with your spiritual one. (And vice versa). It’s a mixed bag as it can either bring you to spiritual heights and depths – or provide you with a damn good illusion of the same.

Mercury trined the Node challenges you to delve into the language and experience of Spirit, especially as you deal with emotional, familial, residential and/or ancestral issues.

Pluto on the South Node squared Eris is a massive energy itself (now fired up further because Jupiter Retrograde trines Eris). This is all about the energy and (seeming) fixity of ancestral karma and the power of old, controlling institutions or persons. As the control matrix is challenged, it intensifies the illusions that keep fear based consciousness in check. Some of these illusions are held in place because of our insecurities, ancestral contracts, or because we have played our own role in control dramas. (Who, truly is exempt here?)

Whilst Eris’ role in all this can be written as the avenging feminine, be mindful of the use of this archetype to justify installing new systems of control and power to find Dominion over others. It doesn’t matter if it uses the cover/rhetoric/image of the Feminine as it’s face or not – not everything that claims to be aligned to Her necessarily is.

There is a place for deep, sacred rage at what has been done to the Feminine, but it is not a justification to create new cycles of abuse and hierarchy – or to lash out at those who process differently.

In practical terms , self-care is key. Seek out teachers and facilitators you trust if facing difficult situations. You may want to amp up psychic protection with flint, black obsidian and selenite. Smudging the home will also help to keep the energy moving.

Take it a day at a time. Watch what comes. Be mindful that it’s a triggering contest out there. You do not need to become a puppet in someone else’s drama. Stick to the truth of your being and your path.

Blessings

CHIRON CONJUNCT VESTA (2 ARIES): THE RADICAL MEDICINE OF LOVE AND I AM PRESENCE – April 7-9, 2019

Over the next two days, Chiron will conjunct Vesta at 2 Aries. Chiron represents our personal and collective relationship to the patterns and karmic dynamics of wounding and healing. Vesta represents the way we adhere to certain contracts of service, servitude, ideation and discard (especially when it comes to matters of faith and karma). Whilst Chiron represents the Wounded-Healer, Vesta represents the Facilitator.

In a not-so-ideal sense (and I say that as I prefer humanity to evolve a course that is a little gentler) … Chiron and Vesta coming together can generate an impulse to throw, or sacrifice the self in playing out abuser-victim type connections. Pain or an attack to a person´s sense of self is induced (and felt), triggering them into a deeper journey of healing.

Their first response, however, may take them away from being able to process and acknowledge who they are and what their role in all of it is. Essentially – this is the punching bag route. (Whether you´re the puncher or punchee depends on other factors)

In a (hopefully) more ideal way, Chiron and Vesta come together to show how we are all our own teachers, facilitators and healers. The answers to what we seek come from within as does the source of healing and re-connection that allows us to come to a state of wholeness.

It means letting go of labels, paths, paradigms, and simply being present to what is. That in itself can hold the space for unfolding in the future, as the past comes up to be witnessed and processed

Again, there is an extreme pole in that point of view and that skirts towards hubris. Irrespective of how far we have come in our spiritual journeys, there is always a time and space where you do need an external hand to get your healing process going. No one is an island.

But what does the Aries signature bring to this alignment?

And at which level of evolution?

For me, a more evolved (or integrated) signature of Aries realizes that it does not (always) require impetuousity or bullishness to push itself through the world. One can simply be who they are.

Sometimes institutional injustices and human cruelty can make the world seem very unsafe for those who do not fit in or comply to some socially sanctioned ideal of self-hood. Even here – Aries is asked to recognize its own unique essence – before moving with that presence into the external world (in whatever way it sees fit).

There is a moment of recognition and embodiment that precedes external action. The Self does not become defined in opposition or resistance to some external force, but emanates from within.

If I had to put a label on it, I would call it the state of being where:

The Self meets Love, 
The Self is dissolved by Love, 
The Self becomes Love.

We are ourselves when we align with the field and consciousness of Love.

Sometimes we find that by ourselves. 
Sometimes with loved ones (human, cat, dog, fish, etc.)
Sometimes when we´re in a certain location. 
Sometimes when we listen to a particular song. 
Sometimes when we eat a certain food. 
Sometimes when we forgive another their trespasses. 
Sometimes when we defend a loved one (that includes ourselves) from harm.

The list goes on.

There is no one prescription for what can bring a person to that state of conscious Being, Un-doing, and Expanding.

In fact, the words fall short of the experience. 
As they tend to in the Spiritual Domain.

There is just no one answer of what can and will bring a person to that state of Presence.

Because we are all Unique.

Find what it is that makes you expand into that Space-and-State-of-Being.

If it involves another, ensure consent is involved. 
Harm none, including the Self.

And just be.

Good enough.

(And you´ll find the healing path of service and embodiment you´re looking for… )

ARIES NEW MOON: REBIRTHING FROM THE HEART OF THE FEMININE (APRIL 5TH 2019)

I´m excited about this Aries New Moon for a multitude of reasons. Firstly, it comes after a prolonged phase of spiritual muckery, re-visitation and (ideally) clarity through Mercury Retrograde and Vesta in Pisces. Whilst Mercury and Venus are still in Pisces, a lot of the debris has been cleared and we are collectively moving into lighter, more refined frequencies.

The Aries New Moon gives us the opportunity to planet new seeds of being and becoming. To re-birth ourselves as that Light-Spark-Essence of Consciousness of Self.

p““`00000000055555555555555555554ayd76

(that was kitty´s contribution – she decided to walk across the keyboard and chime in)

Now it´s not all light, roses and cupcakes – as there is still a lot of collective density afoot. But what we´re being asked to do is to realize that we have a choice as to how we engage with it. By saying no to old scripts, patterns, paradigms, and karmic contracts that weigh us down and force us into narrow roles – we change that collective experience.

The New Moon (15 Aries) squares Hylonome (14 Capricorn) and Persephone (15 Capricorn). This is an excellent time to re-claim the self from contracts and a rigid stipulation of roles in partnerships and parent-child dynamics. Rather than playing out a script, you are invited to live your life the way you want to. As you.

Whilst honoring others is important, it as is important to honor yourself and what is true for you.

Too often we compromise that essential quality in the name of service, love, societal and familial expectations, cultural norms, and so on.

A good resource for those working through these dynamics, especially as manifested in codependent pattern is: Women Who Love Too Much by Robin Norwood (but as the author says – it really applies to anyone in these patterns – women are just statistically more likely to get stuck in certain culturally ´mandated´roles as opposed to others)`+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++uiul

(Kitty approves of this message – that was her again)

We also see a similar theme playing out with the New Moon trine Ceres and The Great Attractor (14 Sagittarius). We are asked to look at how we give and receive nurture to others to help them expand into a greater understanding of who they are and the road they take.

Sometimes too little nurture can be the kick in the pants you need to get up and moving.

(And sometimes it becomes the construct to get you to shut down and stop feeling your truth)

Sometimes too much ´nurture´can feel smothering and constraining. Remember, it comes down to that ´s´.

What you´re looking for is the right amount.

And for people who are disconnected from that energy, accepting any amount of nurture back into your life can be a challenge in itself. Open yourself up to it, if you feel it doesn´t have any hidden strings attached.

Look for teachers and pathways who can help you expand yourself sense of self and challenge you appropriately – and say goodbye to those who are more invested in pulling your strings.

Remember that just as there is a toxic masculine (which does ot define all of masculinity), there is also a toxic feminine (which does not define all of femininity).

The same applies to the archetype of the Mother. You dont´need to romanticize it. You can recognize the shitty, controlling parts and acknowledge them as such.

Then you can actually do something about them.

Generally speaking:

Look to your relationships with your primary nurturers and mentors to see how they have influenced your journey. These archetypes are not limited to particular genders.

Honor, acknowledge, forgive, give thanks and release – if appropriate  🙂

Last – but by no means least –

We also see Isis (16 Leo) trining this New Moon with Iris (15 Libra) opposing this New Moon.

This is a time to awaken back to the pure energy of the nurturing Feminine, fierce and protective in its compassion and embodiment. You do not need a label, title or construct to do so – as she was always there to begin with.

As you bring back that pure Feminine Essence in to your Heart, you rebirth your Being..

You re-birth the entire world.

Let the tears flow – be they of recognition, joy rage, sadness, humility, grace – and you may find messages arising through your sub-conscious (and other layers of reality).

Be open to allow the symbol of the rainbow or full color spectrum into your spiritual and psychic work – if it calls to you.

And watch the world we co-create into being.

Recommended gemstones: Carnelian, Ammonite.

Blessings To the Collective,

Vesta at 29 Pisces : Choosing a Different Path of Service

It’s time to align with a new paradigm of Service, one that does not equate itself to soul-crushing sacrifice. One that allows the Soul to resonate in Expansion – as opposed to contraction in fear. A choice that allows for the movement of Grace within and around you.

Vesta leaves Pisces within the next 29 hours. Choose what you decide to commit your energy to wisely .

YOUR TRUE SOURCE OF POWER: MERCURY RETROGRADE ENDS, PLUTO CONJUNCT SOUTH NODE, SQUARE ERIS (MARCH-APRIL 2019)

We live in very significant times. The astrology of the present speaks to personal, intergenerational, ancestral and collective transits on an immense scale. It can truly feel overwhelming. But such is the nature of the time.

It presents us with the opportunity to grow, develop and evolve our psychic sensitivities in ways that allow us to remain open, yet able to hold a functional boundary. 

I do not subscribe to the interpretation of the doctrine of One-ness in ways that damage the Self. Part of the beauty and Paradox of Spirit is to realize that state of Unity – through a recognition of our Diversity.

In today´s video I discuss the end of Mercury Retrograde conjunct Pisces, and briefly introduce the Pluto/South Node conjunction-squared Eris. What´s presented here is a highly condensed summary. 

I would like all of you to read the associated article about the Pluto-Eris square as it has tremendous significance for all of us:

https://bairaveebalasubramaniam.com/2019/03/22/pluto-eris-square-2019-2021-the-challenges-of-finding-balance-in-a-time-of-breaking-and-re-making-the-world/

The energies of both alignments weave their way through the first half of April – their impact will last for a long time afterwards. 

Take heed. Be very mindful of what you do, say and emobdy at this time. It matters.

PISCEAN MATTERS: END OF MERURY RX, PROCESSING

The end of Mercury Retrograde signals the end of a phase of inward evolution. The arrow has been drawn back to its maximal point. And it begins its release (as part of its direct motion out of Shadow). 

We will be seeing Mercury move through the rest of Pisces up until April 16. (+ 1 day for those in Asia/Australia)

As Mercury moves through Pisces, revisit what we have been learning over the past few weeks. Look all the way back to Feb 10, when Mercury first entered Pisces. Chart your journey from then. Look at all you have experienced and learnt in that time. There´s bound to be a lot to process. 

Create a structured plan _and_ daily routine of psychic, emotional and physical detoxification for yourself and those who are near and dear to you.

Use gemstones such as selenite, black tourmaline and lepidolite to create crystal grids for space clearing and re-instilling a sense of safety and security. 

Smudge your space using the plants native, local or traditional to your land and culture. That goes a long way in maintaining your daily space and place. 

Take salt baths or salt soaks for the feet as that will also help. 
I want to highlight blue kyanite as the gemstone of choice at this time as it helps us integrate lessons from different levels and dimensions of consciousness. My suggestion would be to not use the stone to find greater intensity – but rather gentle integration.

Venus in Pisces brings back some of these lessons we have learnt and transposes it onto matters of finance, beauty, wealth, relationships and professional connections. Be mindful of projection dynamics. Aim to ground out regularly and stay discerning. We´re not out of the Piscean bath just yet. We see a little lifting of those energies around the end of April.

Refer to my previous article and video on the Pisces-Capricorn stellium and its possibilities of manifestation in April for further information:

PLUTO-ERIS SQUARE: THE BREAKING AND RE-MAKING OF THE WORLD

Now the Pluto-Eris square is a big deal. And it´s an even bigger deal because the North Node opposes Pluto, the South Node conjuncts Pluto and both Nodes square Eris. At this time, Pallas Athena completes it all in a Grand Cardinal Cross. Again- look to the 1st link for the extended article. 

Long story short: Pluto is the gateway to the psychic underworld. It forces us to confront the Shadow within and without. It deals with magic, sex, death, the occult, taxes, power abuses, energetic interfaces, shamanism, ancestors – and so on. 

Collectively speaking, it (especially in Capricorn) deals with the institutions, structures and people in whom we invest our power. And all of it – that which is out of balance and alignment – is coming down.

On the flip-side of Pluto, the same process of breakdown harbours within it the seeds of new life. Much as the rebirth that follows a phase of death. Or the metamorphosis the caterpillar must undergo to emerge out of its cocoon as a butterfly. 

That´s the kind of magic and alchemy we are all manifesting collectively – as part of the superstructure (government, economy, politics), in our interpersonal, intimate spaces – and within the epigenetics of trauma and other characteristics transmitted through the ancestral line.

As above, so below.
As within, so without.

This energy of breakdown/rebirth is being catalysed by Pluto´s square to Eris. 

Eris represents the capacity of the marginalized to break and re-make a system already corrupt and complacent in its elitism. But questions of proportionality, justice and collateral often get overlooked in the process.

The Nodes as part of the whole thing connect the darkness and shadow in need of transmutation to other decisions, structures and energetic choices made by the polity and family as the source of the distorted reality we see at present. If you´re looking for the why to your situation, look back.

Deep into the ancestral line.
You may need to acknowledge something, 
release something, 
heal something, 
dissolve something 
(or all of the above). 

It is wisest to do this with a practitioner of sufficient experience, grounding and clarity whom you trust. But what do you do with all this? How do you cope?

Look to the lessons of Pallas Athena in Libra and the North Node in Cancer.

It´s about finding that balance between openness and self-preservation. 

It´s about being willing to be a part of this world, and for times, apart from it.

It´s about integrating that knowledge with your Heart Center and allowing it to be present. 

To Love, to truly and deeply feel what is happening in your world – internally and externally

Knowing that it is okay to disconnect for a little while. 

Your martyrdom (or anyone else´s) isn´t going to be the thing that changes the game. That age has come and gone. 

Our willingness to heal and to love will. It´s not the easiest solution – but it´s subtle – and deeply, deeply powerful. 

Send a prayer each day from your heart for a solution to manifest itself, in a way that honors all and is filled with grace and ease.

Don´t give into the cynicism and pessimism – or the armchair commentary that comes from people who say they do things, but don´t. 

Truly set aside a space and time for yourself where you allow yourself to Love. 

That´s it. Simply, truly, and deeply love.

And watch what happens.

It´s going to take all of us to manifest this shift in a way that is less damaging than our current trajectory.
