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.

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.
 
And if you want to hear me speak more about the Jupiter-in-Sagittarius transit and what it means for us all – tune into my live radio interview with Cindy Magnuson on Twilight Epiphanies Talk Radio on Thursday (13 December) at 7 pm Central Time (USA).
 
That´s in about 10 hours from now!
 
 
Or call in at +1 (929)477-1183 to listen live.
 
Blessings.

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,

LAST 2 DAYS OF MERCURY-IN-SCORPIO!

sunset-near-portsea-australia (1)

Mercury re-enters Sagittarius in 2 days´ time, at 23:42 December 12th, UTC time.

It´s passing through the late degrees of Scorpio right now.

Temptation is in the air.

Stay truthful in your communications and remember to take the time to feel deeply into whatever comes your way.

Some messages are not meant for you.
Some triggers have nothing to do with you.

Old figures and patterns from your past may seek to return – think twice before letting them in.

Painful shadows, skeletons in the closet, may also seek recognition at this time.

The pain lessens when you are willing to see them for what they are.

And then the healing begins.

Use this time to take stock of your energy, intent and focus.

Note areas that need further work and investment before launching into the next chapter.

In particular:

Evaluate who you share your energy with.

Be it financially, emotionally, sexually, or in any way that has meaning, depth and intensity.

Consider where you give too much, or too little.
Consider where you receive too much, or too little.

Where do you allow imbalances to persist, and why?

Remember: It is harder to see where we, as individuals, are not holding up our end of the bargain. It is easier to look outside.

Gemstones such as amber and black obsidian will help in healing and discerning boundaries.

Obsidian cuts ties that no longer serve, amber seals and heals the aura.

Remember that releasing a hook or tie that no longer works for you does not always automatically mean the end of a relationship or connection of some kind.

It means the end, or death of certain patterns within it.

The relationship comes to an end only if the dysfunctional tie is all that keeps it together – and participation in that dynamic ceases.

Essential oils (and as always, check for contraindications if sensitive/pregnant/etc.):

Clary sage
Lemongrass
Eucalyptus
Cypress

Chiron Retrograde Ends in Pisces (December 8-9, 2018)

 

 

This is an exciting time in our collective evolutionary journey. We are being given the opportunity to lay rest to patterns of wounding, predation and co-dependency that no longer serve. We are being asked to step into a more empowered paradigm of healing.

Yesterday, we saw the end of Chiron Retrograde in Pisces – for the last time till 2061!

Chiron will now move direct through the last few degrees of Pisces till February 18, 2019 – whereupon it will re-enter Aries.

The direct motion of Chiron will ease and speed up the resolution of karmic imbalances, should we choose to work with the energy in that way.

MERCURY & VENUS AT 29 DEGREES: TEACHERS OF THOUGHT AND CONNECTION AT THE BRINK OF TRANSFORMATION (December 2nd 2018)

dead-tree-in-southwest
 
We are at an interesting time-space where new chapters unfold and old ones are revisited. At the same time. Our key players are Mercury and Venus.
 
Mercury Retrograde has just re-entered Scorpio and sits at 29 degrees.
 
Venus is just about to re-enter Scorpio and sits at 29 degrees Libra.
 
There are other bodies in the skies making alignments at 29 degrees, creating powerful astrological currents – but I´m sticking with these two. The lessons they bring affect all else as the skies are so densely woven together.
 
Mercury was last at 29 Scorpio on October 30th.
Venus was last at 29 Libra between September 7th-9th, October 31st-November 2nd and (now) November 30th-December 2nd.
 
What´s interesting is that Mercury and Venus have been in a strange sort of dance this year, by coming and going into the signs of Libra/Scorpio and Scorpio/Sagittarius at the same time.
 
Look back to these dates and see what came up for you then, and what comes up for you now. You may see old patterns that want to take form in your lives again – especially when it comes to your sense of justice, equilibrium and relationship boundaries.
 
Look back to the old scripts and narratives that you have inherited or internalized which aspects of those you have dissolved or re-inforced your attachment to.
 
This will help you tease out different aspects or dimensions of the situation you are working through.
 
We can say that this story will continue to be teased out for most of December, as Mercury and Venus head past the shadow periods and then fully re-engage direct motion. In other words, they move past the points their retrogrades began at.
 
Venus reaches 10´50 Scorpio on December 17 whereas Mercury reaches 13´29 Sagittarius on December 24.
 
However. . .
It won´t take that long for the nature of the energy shift as Venus re-enters Scorpio later today.  We´ll just see the dominoes continue to roll out for the rest of December.
 
We´re shifting from the question of what choices we wish to make and into committing to them.
This can be a choose to unite with certain energies, hold space for transmutation or move away entirely from them, or some other path – whatever it is, it´s going to take commitment to realize and maintenance of healthy boundaries. 
 
These patterns come into greater cosmic focus as Venus, yet again, is part of a Grand Cross (which we saw twice previously in 2018, tied into its movement over the Libra-Scorpio cusp).
 
In summary: 
 
Consider who you share your energies with and the balance of give and take in those relationships. It can be both personal and professional, or even with different aspects of your own being.
 
Remember that giving too much is just as bad as giving too little in some ways. Do not enable in the name of generosity, unless you enjoy being in chains of dependency. At the same time, do not take another´s energy freely and for granted.
 
Remember that many are guilt-tripped into giving too much of themselves in the name of compassion, and many become stingy with energy in the name of self-preservation.
 
What you´re looking for is a healthy balance within and without.
 
Keep focused on the work of navigation.
 
Avoid karmic cycles that you have already learnt from, unless you´re in a hurry to re-experience them yet again.
 
Protect the delicate balance of giving and receiving, especially through the Heart Chakra.
 
And listen to what it has to say.
 
Essential oil recommendations (and please check for contraindications): Myrrh, Eucalyptus, Thyme, Rose,
 
Gemstone recommendations: Chrysocolla, Green Aventurine, Green Obsidian, Rhodonite
Blessings,
