MARS TRINES ERIS (23 SAGITTARIUS-ARIES, 6th Feb 2020)

Mars (22 Sagittarius) is headed for its exact trine to Eris (23 Aries) in just over a day’s time. This can be a deeply inflammatory aspect which brings about greater conflict and discord to already tense situations.

And whilst I am no stranger to self-assertion and standing in your truth, I do believe in the wisdom of picking your battles.

We will be seeing this additional layer of triggering for the next 2-3 days (Feb 5-7, 2019).

Pay attention to the messages that come your way now and how you choose to respond to them.

Remember that reactivity is not the same as an aligned response.

Remember that outright aggression is not the same as self-assertion.

Remember that playing the victim through passive-aggression is a covert form of violence and control.

Remember that righteous anger can easily become a gateway for toxic behavior if devoid of compassion.

Please be proportional in your responses to people – or what you think they’re saying.

Take the time to ask. Do not make assumptions.

Sometimes people are stubborn in their ways, but meeting it with the same vibe doesn’t change the energy.

State your piece but do not go to war over it unless absolutely necessary.

Remember that disagreement is not _always_ the same as denial of your fundamental humanity. There are gradations to this.

Whilst it is so important each and every person to do the work, know your boundaries.

Be selective with whom you choose to engage with over the next few days it’s its the perfect energy for a storm in a teacup.

On a positive note, it’s a great energy to think about ways to activate, energize and inspire others with the truths that you do believe in.

Less is more right now. Try not to be too heavy-handed as people are seeing red even when there isn’t any to be found.

But again, remember to honor your essence and that of others.

There is no truth so important that it should erode another’s dignity of spirit.

Conversely, there is no privilege so important that it should hide the oppression and harm sustained by another.

There is a fine balancing act between the two.

Librans, this is your time! (and those with strong Libran aspects)

Take that energy to include, rather than exclude.

And yes, that too requires drawing certain boundaries.

Take no being, including yourself, for granted.

I realize these are mostly prescriptions, but I’ve written about these alignments so much that these reminders feel more salient right now.

The Nature Of My Work Has Changed. (Official Announcement for those who needed it)

Summary: The world does not need people who know how to interpret their charts. It needs people who care enough for those who will stand for others who cannot or are systemically prevented from doing so. Honestly, I could stand to make a fortune by targeting my readings and work to white-only audiences and completely ignoring these issues. But I did not do this to make a business. I did this as a sacred calling. Hopefully that is understood. I realize that’s saying goodbye to a lot of people, but it was coming.

————–

Dear (person I was replying to),

In the past, my work was useful to you and made you comfortable. Now it will not make you comfortable.

As I stated a few months back, the nature of the work and space will be changing. I stated the same during the solstice.

And I am not a person to idly make statements of this nature.

I will not turn a blind eye to what ails this planet to make others comfortable.

I am not the lady you found a few years ago because I was trying to please everyone.

And I have found that my silence on such matters actually hurt or gave less room for those who are truly marginalized and targeted.

Moreover, the nature of the work has also changed as it is far more practice oriented.

There is little point in me speaking about the stars that call for revolution and radical compassion if I do not practice it in my own space.

Radical compassion asks you sit with the cringe that you feel. That sense of jadedness or negativity that you project onto one who does not feel that way at all. This is now the work. And it is spreading everywhere. And it will trigger and disengage those who do not want to see it.

As someone who has followed me for years, you also know that the last thing I would tell you to do is to ignore the negativity.

Unfortunately, if you consider my statements on white supremacy and calling out the harm that privilege has done as ‘ white-bashing’, then unfortunately you are also part of the problem.

What I am looking for are allies that support my work. If you do not wish to book a reading with me at this point, that is understandable.

But I will not change or ignore the real need to combine what the skies say and what I do for the sake of anyone’s comfort.

This is still me. Either accept or adapt, or look elsewhere. This is the healing. This is the work that asks you to face that discomfort.

Blessings!

** So people are leaving my page more because of me speaking up, including people who wanted to book readings. I am a human being with material needs.

BLACK MOON LILITH IN ARIES (JANUARY – OCTOBER 2020)

Honestly, I didn’t want to write about this. When I saw this forecast for 2020, I just went Oh Gods … This is not going to be pretty. And so I’ve been putting it off – but it can’t be delayed any longer.

Black Moon Lilith entered Aries on January 27 2020 at 7:35 UT (Universal Time) and will transit the sign until October 21 2020, i.e. for a 9 month period.

Black Moon Lilith is the lunar (mean) apogee. It at the furthest possible point the Moon could be from the Earth, assuming a regular elliptical orbit. There’s also an asteroid called Lilith and the oscillating Apogee also known as the ‘true’ apogee – which we are not discussing here.

If we consider the planets at play, we see a point of hypothetical presence on the same plane as a line drawn through the center of the Earth and the Moon, if it was directly behind the Earth. The Moon itself has no light save for what it reflects from the Sun or what is refracted from the Earth’s own atmosphere. It gives no light to the Black Moon.

(Note the Moon itself moves, what stays the same is the shape of the orbit in idealized form)

In other words, Black Moon Lilith is a Dark phenomenon. And unfortunately, that means that it gets projected on terribly. People are quick to make equivalences of light = good, dark = bad (which of course has its racial undertones) and so the meaning of BML gets equally distorted.

Some astrologers see her as a purely negative phenomenon, others seek to reclaim her. Personally, I think it’s somewhere in the middle.

If we look at the mythology of Lilith we see why both reactions occur to the energy of this hypothetical point:

“ For 4,000 years Lilith has wandered the earth, figuring in the mythic imaginations of writers, artists and poets. Her dark origins lie in Babylonian demonology, where amulets and incantations were used to counter the sinister powers of this winged spirit who preyed on pregnant women and infants. Lilith next migrated to the world of the ancient Hittites, Egyptians, Israelites and Greeks. She makes a solitary appearance in the Bible, as a wilderness demon shunned by the prophet Isaiah. In the Middle Ages she reappears in Jewish sources as the dreadful first wife of Adam… The ancient name “Lilith” derives from a Sumerian word for female demons or wind spirits—the lilītu and the related ardat lilǐ. The lilītu dwells in desert lands and open country spaces and is especially dangerous to pregnant women and infants. Her breasts are filled with poison, not milk. The ardat lilī is a sexually frustrated and infertile female who behaves aggressively toward young men. “

– https://www.biblicalarchaeology.org/…/…/

Of course with the way contemporary society is evolving, Lilith is now being re-imagined as a progressive, radical, revolutionary figure who dared to say no to first man and his expectation of compliance. Her Sumerian origins are largely ignored in this interpretation, but I suspect that’s not a good call to make for energyworkers.

Irrespective of which way a person views Lilith – as baby-killing demonness or woman-in-revolution-in-control-of-her-body – both sides would have to agree that she is deeply powerful, mystical and sexual. She tends to represent where society has projected or sought to inscribe its own meaning onto different expressions and experiences of the feminine.

Coming to the current alignment, Black Moon Lilith is in Aries. And that means that the focus of such projection is entirely on the way our persona and ego-identities are expressed and seen (by ourselves and others). It is about our presence in the world and how that destroys, challenges (and inevitably triggers) others who fear what they do not know or understand.

At the biological level, that focuses on anything above the neck, and so attacks to one’s social and personal face are likely. And the only thing one can to is to face up to it all anyway. – and to take adequate precautions.

It is also about looking at the projections that a person bears onto the question of identity, be it their own or someone else’s. There is a greater vulnerability, power, possibility of damage and healing in a person’s sense of self through this transit. It comes down to knowing the difference between who we think we are (or imagine ourselves to be), and who we actually are in practice.

I forsee much cognitive dissonance as the mirrors are held up and some breakthroughs for those willing to do the work. Know that at times mirrors are distorted so do not take that external feedback to your core unless you know it is a source you can trust. That being said, if what you hear back is consistent – either you’re walking in a fun-house, or there’s something for you to hear. Perhaps adjust. Or come to terms with.

The martial quality of Aries will want to use its warrior strength to assert its truth but remember that might does not make right. If you have power of presence, use it to bring balance back to the world rather to serve only the self.

There are aspects of this Darkness that truly need to be reclaimed from the toxic trappings of patriarchy – and there are other aspects that are truly toxic in themselves. Let us not fall into the idea that only a toxic patriarchy can exist and that there is no matriarchal equivalent.

I address the spiritual and energetic dimensions of this in an article called : When Not All Darkness Is Sacred: Things to Bear in Mind when Embodying or Channelling the Dark Goddess

Link: https://bairaveebalasubramaniam.com/…/…/

It’s important to realize that working with BML is on a spectrum, expressed well by the drama triangle’s intersecting roles of victim, abuser and avenger. Given the nature of projection and fear operating with Lilith, some people will see a victim and call them an abuser, or vice versa (and so on).

Thankfully, through the work that has been happening, more and more are stepping up to be seen, projections and all. It can be worked with to find a healing result, but one needs to work through the pain and hurt that arises beforehand.

If one is unwilling to do so, Lilith simply causes damage – much like her Sumerian origins.

So it’s very hard to give you a clear-cut-is-this-a-good-or-bad-thing. I’d say it’s a good thing for those willing to unpack the layers of pain and trauma and the raw experience of wading through the muck that entails.

It’s not such a great thing for those glossing over it through denial, pretty rhetoric and transcendental ideas that seek to absolve a person from the need to be responsible.

And because of the projection involved, a person who is already triggered will not be able to tell the two apart.

That is what makes this so tricky.

At the time of writing, Black Moon Lilith is at 0 Aries, opposing the Super-Galactic Center at 1 Libra and sextiling Ceres at 0 Aquarius. These are powerful times to re-shape our relationship with Black Moon Lilith to be willing to see her for what she is, rather than what we need or fear her to be. Relationships and dialogue are the vessels that allow this to happen. We also need the need for community and parental / nurturer figures to step up in solidarity and greater alignment with the task of seeing the Truth of the Self.

The one thing I can tell you about Lilith from years of observation is that she rarely teaches through pleasure devoid of hooks or hidden karmic consequences. If your’re getting a little too addicted to your anger or the feeling of certainty that accompanies self-righteousness – look again.

I know that the work I am doing around this is deeply vulnerable and it’s not at fun. But it’s needed. We need to keep showing up and remembering to look at the meaning of our interactions and reactions. We need to develop a far healthier relationship with this shadow aspect of the Self.

We see this theme play itself out again, and again and again till Black Moon Lilith finally enters Taurus in September 2020. Here’s some of the most important aspects:

January 1: Black Moon Lilith (27 Pisces) squared the Galactic Center (27 Sagittarius)

January 20: Black Moon Lilith (29 Pisces) squared Ixion / The Tyrant (29 Pisces)

January 27: Black Moon Lilith enters Aries, one day after the Pluto (23 Capricorn) – Eris (23 Aries) square, on the same day Venus conjuncts Neptune (16 Pisces)

February 9: Venus conjuncts Black Moon Lilith at 1 Aries, both opposing the Super-Galactic Center (1 Libra) on the day of the Full Moon at 20 Leo – conjunct Thereus / The Hunter-Stalker (19 Leo)

February 20: Mars (2 Capricorn) squares Black Moon Lilith (2 Aries) on the same day as the Jupiter-Neptune sextile (17 Capricorn-17 Pisces)

March 4: Chiron conjuncts Black Moon Lilith at 4 Aries on the same day of the Vesta-Pluto trine (24 Taurus-Capricorn) and when Mercury’s retrograde takes it back into Aquarius

March 9: Mean North Node (4 Cancer), Mean South Node (4 Capricorn) square Black Moon Lilith (4 Aries) – one day before the Full Moon (19 Virgo) opposes Neptune (19 Pisces)

March 26: Sun conjuncts Black Moon Lilith at 6 Aries on the same day that Jupiter (23 Capricorn) squares Eris (23 Aries)

July 18: Vesta (19 Cancer) square Black Moon Lilith (19 Aries)

July 28: Jupiter Rx (20 Capricorn) square Black Moon Lilith (20 Aries)

August 10: Mars conjunct Black Moon Lilith (21 Aries)

August 19: Pluto Rx (22 Capricorn) square Black Moon Lilith (22 Aries) on the same day as the New Moon (26 Leo) conjunct Mercury (28 Leo) trine Ixion (28 Sagittarius) the Galactic Center (27 Sagittarius)

September 1: Venus (24 Cancer) square Black Moon Lilith (24 Aries) on the same day as Black Moon Lilith conjunct Eris Rx (24 Aries)

September 11: Saturn Rx (25 Capricorn) square Black Moon Lilith (25 Aries) on the same day that the Sun (19 Virgo) opposes Neptune (19 Pisces)

September 23: Mars Rx (26 Capricorn) conjuncts Black Moon Lilith (26 Aries) on the same day that Mercury (25 Libra) squares Saturn Rx (25 Capricorn) and enters its shadow phase

September 25: Black Moon Lilith (27 Aries) trines the Galactic Center (27 Sagittarius)

October 4: Black Moon Lilith (28 Aries) trines Ixion / The Tyrant (28 Sagittarius) on the same day that Pluto stations direct at 22 Capricorn

October 7: Black Moon Lilith (28 Aries) trines Thereus / The Hunter-Stalker (28 Leo) on the same day that Vesta (24 Leo) trines Eris (24 Aries) and Mercury (9 Scorpio) opposes Uranus (9 Taurus)

So yeah … this lesson comes out and repeats itself throughout the transit and with key transits alongside it. Whatever we’ve been doing with this energy in the past week is literally the start.

Pay attention to what you have learnt and experienced. Know your triggers. Study your own egoic reactions to people who challenge your point of view. And remember that the same language will be used by those who have done very little self-reflection to justify their own violence.

Stand up for those who speak up for the marginalized without co-opting their voice.
If you have privilege, use it. Use your extra resources and energy to show up – time and again – for those who are doing the raw, dangerous, vulnerable work of true self-expression.

And if that person is you, remember to rest from time to time and consider your own energetic reserves. You don’t have to do it all by yourself, even if that’s what Aries tells you to. It makes aspects to other signs as well.

Raw Truth of Spirit

We discuss the raw energy of Aquarius and how it has been distorted by Piscean delusion. We confront new age deceptions that seek to silence truth-tellers. This includes being in denial, white-washing, erasure, and the idea that you chose what happened to you. Much is happening at the karmic level that has literally distorted the soul choices and paths that were made prior to birth. The Universe is changing so rapidly now that the rules are changing. To make the shift, you have to empty the cup.

We also talk about how intentions on their own are nice, but on their own are still empty gestures. It’s time to get real about helping those making a difference in the world.

I also talk about the kitty fundraiser at the end:

Saying No to Inequity: A key theme in my journey so far

Without realizing it at the time, a lot of my life decisions have been about resisting privilege and refusing to be a part of broken, racialized structures. I found them deeply engraved within the academic cultures of the US, Asia and Europe. (Merit-based scholarship holder here, not born with a silver spoon)

And it wasn’t just ‘white people’ – but also others who internalized the same norms and values in order to be seen as part of the status quo, and therefore more likely to be rewarded as such.

I’ve seen terrible abuses of power within the system and – as an individual – have always rallied against it.
Eventually, when it came time to figure out what to do after my PhD – leaving academia was all too simple.

I vividly remember being at an European conference on Feminism and just having to leave the room. No one was actually saying anything of substance that the others had not read. It was all about the posturing, the peacocking, the complete erasure of non-mainstream voices.

Or when a supervisor thought that she could tell me that I wasn’t ‘serious about the PhD’ whilst I was dealing with chronic fatigue (there was a phase I couldn’t even lift a spoon). I made sure she wasn’t my supervisor afterwards.

Or when the people on my research team could not be bothered to get my name right on their final publication (it was unrecognizable – literally like someone had typed a bunch of random letters). Or if they just pretended I did not exist and had conversations that should have involved me but did not – I was the only non-white scholar.

And certainly how they included me back when they wanted a person of colour there.

The kinds of things I’ve given up on on my journey have been tangibles, rather than hypothetical. Fully funded scholarships, access to a sweet post-doctoral research fund, life in Europe, working my way up to professorship, etc.

But it was a good call.

Academia didn’t and still hasn’t gotten it’s head out of its butt and still retains its toxic, increasingly managerial culture.

It isn’t what’s informing social change.

And it isn’t reaching people.

Conversations do. Articles do.

Even as a spiritualist, I brought the same set of values (and expanded upon them) when travelling around for work.

I could not get into the tropical spiritual retreat culture (after seeing how it impacted local economies and culture).

I do not share information that is specific and unique to certain cultures as I feel it should come from an actual elder.

I did not feel comfortable working with land that was traditionally owned by Indigenous peoples (who have struggled to retain that control since colonial times).

And anyone who has seen me work with land knows the effects are instant. Rains come, animals pop up. Land is happy.

I chose not to go down that path despite how much money it could have made me. Because it’s all too easy to skin indigenous culture from its roots and wear it like a grotesque bodysuit and get people to pay for the privilege of seeing you wear it.

The same Journey of saying ‘ No’ is mirrored in my relationship with Spirit. If it supports toxic structures, it goes. Simple as.

And now I keep refining my platform and making sure it’s not an echo chamber for the privileged – which does lose potential clients and reach.

Looking back, still happy with those choices.

I made a mistake believing that writing about liberal academic concepts meant that people were actually going to implement them.

I made a mistake believing that talking about spirituality meant that someone was willing to go in and do the work for reals.

What I did learn is that performative wokeness, performative allyship is pervasive.

People like to be seen signalling their beliefs and adherence to things that sound good.

But the willingness to do the work?
Disrupt a flawed status quo?
Say no to added income and status?
(Again, no silver spoon – i have no property to my name and zero savings)

That’s rare. And I appreciate everyone who has walked their talk.

And not just talked it.

Full Moon in Cancer / 1st Lunar Eclipse of 2020: Dissolve the Contract, Unearth the Soul

This Full Moon has felt very different from what astrology said it would feel like – and after talking to other facilitators on the same frequency – I´m sufficiently convinced that my interpretation has some general value. It is honestly getting harder for me to speak or write on astrology because of the way energy is changing: And that is a GOOD thing. The more a Soul comes to its own, original spark of consciousness – the less easily it slides and fits into the boxes and patterns that astrology predicts for it. And thankfully, I see that happening more and more with people.

Whilst the sign of Cancer addresses the home, the family, the Feminine (archetype in all matter and being), emotions and a sense of belonging – that´s not the dominant energy signature that I (and others on the same vibe) are picking up. Astrologically speaking, this is supported by a more in-depth analysis of the energy.

Between January 12-13 (UTC time), we will be experiencing the Major Capricorn Conjunction of the Sun, Mercury, Ceres, Pluto and Saturn (22-23 Capricorn). I will address this in a different article / video. Essentially what this conjunction asks of us is an uncompromising realization and action to determine what is true for us. What is the root that anchors us and the tribe that holds us as part of the collective.

Whilst we automatically (would like to) assume that´s family of origin, it´s not a guarantee.

Some people have families who love, nurture and support them in ways that help them blossom. That´s wonderful and if you have that, cherish it. Spend quality time with your loved ones and have a meal with them.

But that´s really not the experience for a lot of others. For some people, family is an abusive, narcissistic vampire pit they spend decades learning how to crawl out of (if at all) – and often by attracting partners who perpetuate that abuse till they´re ready to open their eyes to the root causes of it.

It´s wonderful to idealize family and pretend that the latter is not the norm – but truly, illusions are dissolving.

As we step up as co-creative, autonomous beings exercising their Free Will with Spirit, we also dissolve our relationship with dysfunctional roles and patterns we were forced to squeeze ourselves into. It´s best not to romanticize it as karma, purpose, whatever – we´re headed to the age of Aquarius. We have to learn to do things and speak truth to spirit differently.

Too much of what ails our world gets inculcated into young minds from the family unit. And we truly need to look there and begin the change there to see it ripple outwards. People are not born into racist, misogynistic, transphobic, xenophobic or sociopathic attitudes. They learn it from somewhere.

Astrologically speaking, this revelation is supported by The Sun and Mercury´s conjunction to Kassandra (the oracle who was ignored) at 19 Capricorn and inconjunct to Asbolus (19 Gemini), the seer of truths through signs in the skies.

Look back to your early childhood. Look at the missing pieces or strange gaps in memory. That´s very common for those who endure traumatic abuses in childhood or live through situations of incredible stress. Speak to a sibling or someone who was witnessing those events. It might spark a memory. (And a lot of emotion which can be deeply cathartic). Make sure you have the right support network if you feel vulnerable about this.

Now when you´re looking at this Eclipse (or any Eclipse) give it a build-up/wind-down period of +/- 7 days. Look at what´s happening in your life and world around you to understand the movement of energy. For astrological context, look to the other eclipses connected to this one (Saros Lunar Eclipse Cycle 144), namely: November 17, 1929 – November 28, 1947 – December 8, 1965 – December 20, 1983 – December 30, 2001 (in recent years).

At a collective level, the event that best captures the energy of this eclipse is the sudden (revelation of) decision by Princess Markle and Prince Harry to step back from ´senior roles´ in the British Royal Family and seek to become financially independent and live (at least partially) in the USA. That´s a big shock as this is unprecedented. In interviews, they have stated that they felt criticism when raising the possibiliy of change and that (Ms. Markle especially) felt like she was becoming voiceless by being forced into certain roles.

Whilst their decision in itself is not going to change family dynamics for the planet, it´s a good example of what this Lunar Eclipse supports.

Remember that the major Capricorn Conjunction and current Lunar Eclipse (19 Cancer) / Full Moon (20 Cancer) also aspect Eris (23 Aries). There´s certainly going to be an energy of urgency and the need to detach from situations of exclusion and erasure in the name of tradition, culture and power dynamics.

What´s also interesting about the need to erase roles is just how many Feminine astrological bodies are also aspecting the Galactic Center (27 Sagittarius) at the same time: Venus (26 Aquarius), Haumea (27 Libra), Okyrhoe (27 Aquarius), Pallas Athena (26 Sagittarius), Circe (27 Aquarius), Minerva (26 Gemini), Nemesis (26 Virgo) and Aphrodite (26 Aries).

It´s truly a time to renegotiate the role the Feminine is expected to play in the collective.

Appeal to your higher guides and council. Ask for the dissolution of these collective roles and the dysfunctional societal and familial units that hold them in place. Allow for the renewal of True Divine Feminine energy to re-emerge in a way that is true, grounded and aligned with Love. Specify that the karma dissolved is not transferred, replicated, hidden to given to others and that there is no backlash at the energy or other levels. This also helps.

It is also important to note that there are many energies using the name of the Feminine / Goddess right now that really have nothing to do with it. You need to use your discernment and not fall into the trap of blinding yourself and your perception to make reality fit into your idea of the world.

The more these patterns and structures dissolve, the more your soul comes back to whatever its original ´feeling´ (if that word can be used) was.

Remember that home and family must support and anchor your energy.
And that you can and should no longer carry the karma others as we all move into higher dimensional consciousness. Each individual has already been receiving years´ worth of prompts, support and Divine cues.

What people are right now is what they have chosen to be.
Stop trying to save them from their choices and live your own life.

The more you let the mind and its boxes and labels get out of the way, the more you begin to truly feel. And that is what the Lunar Eclipse in Cancer can truly bring for us all.

My Approach to the Lunar Eclipse & Major Capricorn Conjunction (10-12 January 2020)

I’ve been thinking about why I’m not that fussed over the upcoming Lunar Eclipse or major Capricorn conjunction.

I’ve been walking my talk. Preparing for this incrementally over the past few years. Guiding people to do the same.

Sure, it’s a historically significant alignment.

And yes, it’s gonna change the world.

But it’s important to also realize that it’s not just about the ‘big things’ , out there.

It’s making all of us commit to a legacy worth leaving behind.

Whatever’s coming up between January 10-12 (UT time) is stuff we’ve already seen coming. It’s things we’ve set seeds for, personally and collectively, much like a wave of motion unfolding a constellation of dominoes.

There have been opportunities to course correct and at a personal level and many of us have taken them. That’s been the focus on so much incredible work spiritually and interpersonally over the past few years.

With Pluto in Capricorn, that has been the work of decolonizing and de-constructing the power dynamics that create hierarchical and oppressive relationships in the world. That is reflected in the same dynamics within family, intimate partnerships, ancestry, collective and personal shadow dynamics.

We were warned. And many of us have been doing what we can.

So whatever that is for you, keep at it.

Don’t fall into the fallacy that your life and efforts do not matter.

We live in a quantum reality. We have no way of knowing just how our personal work influences the political. Only time can tell.

If the flap of a butterfly’s wings can cause changes to the weather, your work also affects the collective and it’s unfolding.

Be responsible
Be diligent
Be committed

To what is in your power to change.

Trust that the ripples you set in motion have an influence beyond yourself.

That means taking decisive action. It’s not about intentions and prayers alone.

Getting hyped about the what ifs-and what might be-s doesn’t actually get anything done.

Take it a day at a time.
Do what you can.
Reach out to others who need a little help if you can.
Rest and replenish.
Wake up the next day and do it all over again.

That’s the way to go.

Blessings,

The Spiritual and Astrological Challenge of 2020: Broad Strokes

So, I researched thousands of aspects. And spent a long time collating everything. I felt the energy of the intensity of the work. And my laptop died.

So this is the best I can do right now

It’s a recording of a live YouTube video in which I lay out the macro vs micro complexities and challenges of the year ahead.

If you want the inside scoop on 2020, sit down, have a listen and take lots of notes.

(JAN 1 – FEB 15, 2020): BULLSEYE 2020 15-MINUTE READINGS

Blessings. I am having an extra special round of 15-minute readings in honor of 2020 and what it promises to bring us all.

These sessions are for those who have a clear query and target / bullseye in focus. It is not a substitute in any way for sessions that require further discourse and exploration.

The 15-minute sessions are highly condensed and have been known to take a year to fully unfold for clients. They can give you targeted, concise guidance for a 1-2 year period.

The more specific you are, the more we can cover.

These sessions go fast. I suggest you get on the ball and secure your place ASAP.

Much Love

Jupiter-Eclipse novile Mars and quintile Neptune! & Activations on Dec 27, 2019

This eclipse has been an interesting one. I´ve been thinking about what to write and truthfully I´ve already been consistently covering the kind of approach or attitude that is best for setting seeds at this time.

I think that has been especially hammered out in Tier-23 videos – but also in my public writings and videos. Especially Solstice Message 2019 : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d48O4MCcnYQ

I´m going to go a little more in-depth for the Eclipse itself and look at alignments that are still occurring and shaping the energetic impact of its aftermath. In some sense, the full impact of the Eclipse gets activated today with The Sun-Jupiter and Mercury-Galactic Center conjunctions!

For reference – The astrological conjunction of the Sun and Moon / Solar Eclipse occurred at (4´6 Capricorn, 5:13 am UT, December 26th 2019). We´re still very much in the aftermath of its energies and still have the opportunity to make the most of the energy.

This Eclipse was especially powerful because it trined Uranus Rx (2 Taurus). A deeper analysis of the Eclipse showed that it also made a novile aspect to Mars and a quintile aspect to Neptune.

This means that the actions we took and ways we connected to the Masculine Archetype (in all forms and beings) set metaphysical seeds in ways that we cannot consciously fathom. So whatever you were drawn to do and act upon creates profound ripples in the way you navigate karma.

Don´t second guess your instincts, especially when they ask you to look deeper into the shadow and find paths of navigation with/away from/through it.

The quintile aspect to Neptune is a highly creative one which allows us to step more fully into our co-create relationship with Source energy. Again, because it´s Neptune, it´s a deeply spiritual experience in which the sky is not the limit: there is no limit to metaphysical experience and the growth that can come from it if harnessed in clarity and groundedness. It´s still a fertile time to create, intuit and open yourself up to spiritual experiences as long as you have done the due diligence.

This still applies strongly today – especially as Jupiter also noviles Mars and quintiles Neptune and is activated by the Sun!

Remember that seeds you set feed into 18-year cycles when it comes to eclipses. This Solar Eclipse is lined with others as part of Saros series 12: November 12 1947, November 23 1965, December 4 1983, December 14 2001 – in the past and – January 5 2038, January 16 2056 and so on in the future.

Generally Eclipses have a +/- 1 week of influence in the build-up and build-down to them. Especially if other alignments continue to amplify their energy, e.g. Jupiter-Sun-conjunction and -Mercury – Galactic Center – conjunction later today.

The Jupiter-Sun conjunction (5´14 Capricorn) reinforces the energy of the Eclipse at 18:25 UT, December 27th 2019. Really pay attention to the opportunities of growth that present themselves to you right now and the teachers who come your way.

Remember that growth sometimes requires saying No, and sometimes Yes. It´s not a one-dimensional process.

I want all of you to be especially aware of those seeking to re-assert older power structures, be it to your face, through subtle actions, or through spiritual or energetic methods. No one is here to be harnessed as a battery for others, no matter how convincing their claim to power, authority or ´the greater good´ is.

Before that, we also see Mercury conjunct The Galactic Center (8:32 UT, same day @ 27´7 Sagittarius). This alignment asks us to stay in-tune with our guides and the paths we have chosen and committed ourselves to, especially on November 19, November 23 and December 19. These dates tally with other major alignments to the GC.

Stick with your spiritual practices and whatever has helped you navigate through those dates and be clear in the Path of Truth you wish to walk on.

Keep setting seeds that help you sustain yourself as you contribute to a meaningful sense of legacy in the world.

That doesn´t have to feel overly dramatic, especially if you´ve been working towards it for a while now. It can feel like an anchoring or settling into a particular path you were already on. So no big fireworks for some of you.

That´s not always about being in the public eye (because each chart, and path is different) – it can be about committing to a more focused path of self-care or completing a task before having some well-deserved rest.

It´s tough to generalize this one , and I wont´fall into the trap of equating Cappyness with extremes of work. That´s how we got into this collective mess in the first place (and I cover some of that in the video link above).

Remember that Capricorn is The Sea-Goat.

It´s not just about reaching for the highest summit, it´s about coming at it from a place of deep emotional intensity and focus.

What the ´summit´ is for each person is different.

And of course you can get additional guidance through a session with me if so inclined.

Or you can work it out on your own, up to you.
