THE MOON´S JOURNEY THROUGH LATE SAGITTARIUS: STAY SHARP! (27-9-2017)

The Moon conjuncts Saturn at 22 Sagittarius. This is a good time to observe what stirs our emotions and speaks to our intuitive channels and faculties.

In 5 hours´ time, the Moon will conjunct Black Moon Lilith at 25 Sagittarius. This is powerful energy to work with as we explore themes such as disempowerment, the lack of recognition, exclusion of one´s truth and on so on. Be mindful of projection dynamics either way.

In 10 hours´ time, the Moon will conjunct the Galactic Center at 27 Sagittarius. Pay attention to the guidance that comes your way. Be it through a teacher, paradigm, lesson, travel opportunity, etc.

Stay out of pointless ego-fights or the need to display who´s knowledge is superior. There´s more for you to do with this energy – and for good cause.

After this, the Moon will conjunct the Galactic Center once more on October 24 and November 20 before Saturn´s big conjunction with the Galactic Center on November 25.

Keep your eye on those dates as the paths you choose towards November will set the general trajectory of your development and growth for the next three decades. Look up Philip Sedgwick´s work on the Galactic Center (it´s the most honest I´ve found, minus the frou frou.

I´ll be doing an interview on this topic soon 🙂 So stay tuned x

SUN-VESTA CONJUNCTION (4 LIBRA) – The Priestess Renegotiates her Boundaries … 27th September 2017

The Sun and Vesta conjunction presents you with an opportunity to renegotiate your relationships and contracts with others. Here is where we stop beating about the bush, say what we mean and mean what we say.

The alignment itself goes exact at 4 Libra ´39 at 14:09 pm (UTC time) on September 27th 2017.

Remember that whilst Libra is associated with beauty, balance and harmony – these are what it idealizes. The symbol of Libra remains the Scales of Justice. And She – of course – holds the scales in one hand and a sword in the other.

Vesta, The Priestess – seeks to find a path of service and dedication by which she can create relationships that enrich all involved, as path of the work she does in the world.

More often than not, we tend to give our power away to others in the name of Love, Compassion and Service. Any action which requires you to pretend to be anything apart from what you are is neither loving, nor compassionate, nor genuinely helpful.

Here is where we cut through the illusions of words and rhetoric that asks us to do just that. What we often forget is that our presence alone can be the reason we are here, it can be the way we serve.

Seek out connections who let you be you are and do not demand you to pretend to be something else.

Be honest in your dealings, in the way you see fit to handle them.

We´re too afraid of being seen as abrasive or harsh because we´re afraid of being seen as abusive or cruel.

The two are not the same thing.

You can be as civil as humanly possible and still be seen as rude because you said: No thank you, I dont want this in my space.

Remember that no one is entitled to your sweetness, grace and nurturing presence unless you freely choose to share it with them.

There is nothing to feel guilty about if you don´t feel like doing that and would rather get straight to the point.

However, that is not the same as going out of your way to be harmful or cruel.
This is a valuable distinction to bear in mind.

And remember – NO is a complete sentence. Especially when someone does not respect you enough to heed your words and preferences with respect to your own space, time and energy.

Hopefully though, you´re dealing with people with whom a more civil interaction is possible. A polite refusal or statement should suffice.

Those who choose to see that as ´abusive´ … are probably not going to see you for who you are in any case. Consider if that is the connection you wish to have.

Take no shit. Do no harm.

Dr. Bairavee Balasubramaniam PhD

A Short Poem from earlier today:

Once upon a time, I had a filter.
And I was more polite when people wasted my time.
. . . and then I figured out how to make them stop
It was as simple as saying
No. Stop. Not interested. Thank you for your time.
I stopped buttering that up.
I stopped the polite back and forth till (hopefully) they got the idea.
I stopped worrying if they would like me afterwards or stay friends if I said no.
Maybe I´m not as nice as I used to be.
But I damn well have a lot more time on my hands.

WALKING AWAY FROM THE DRAMA CYCLE

gold-footpath

Standing your ground is a powerful thing. So too is knowing how to pick your battles.

The drama triangle is one of the most powerful metaphors that I have come across to make sense of how people get trapped in dysfunctional relationships as Rescuer – Persecutor – Victim. (Usually combinations thereof – check out the work of Stephen Karpman). These roles are swapped about and exist in a relationship known as the drama cycle – as it keeps feeding itself.

Whilst one school of thought tells us that standing up for ourselves is the mark of independence and strength, another tells us that doing so can just mean that you´re playing right into some other dynamic. Context tells us which interpretation works.

Have you ever had the same argument with someone again and again, and again? Even though you´ve covered the same bases before, given them ample of information, time and energy to understand what you will and will not accept? And they do the same thing that pissed you off or made you upset the last time? And it starts to feel like a scripted exchange they´re comfortable playing out at some level?

Sometimes it´s a case of a lack of understanding (first couple of times at least).

And sometimes it´s because that person has found a way to get your attention and energetic engagement in a way they can handle, often de-centering you in the process.

It takes a certain degree of maturation to accept people as loving, kind beings. Some people just can´t handle you at your best, so they attempt to bring you to your worst.

No amount of logic or inspired argument helps in those cases and engagement is just another form of feeding the cycle they have set up.

When we seek to walk away from the drama cycle, we no longer feel the need to respond to such forms of baiting. Seeing them for what they are: methods to access your energy in ways that dishonor you.

When we engage, we´re really just trying to get their view to align with ours in some way. This is not always necessary. Acceptance is a far harder – and far more lasting solution.

Remember that everyone is entitled to see the world in the way they need to. We cannot control the perceptions of others – however – we do not need to be bound by them. Another person´s opinion of you does not need to dictate your reality.

So do you just ignore anyone who´s being a jackass to you?
Not always.

When someone is trying to put you down, standing up for yourself is absolutely the right thing to do. In so doing, you establish who you are, in your eyes and what you will and will not tolerate. In other words, you draw the line and make it clear.

You then have a choice to keep doing that over, and over again – or to walk away from dynamics that seek to victimize you. If you need to keep drawing that line, they haven´t honored you or your truth. Further engagement in the same way – as part of the drama cycle – is not likely to change that.

Be sure you do so to end a cycle, and not to hold power over someone else. That´s simply going to repeat the cycle, in a passive-aggressive form.

Ending a cycle or dysfunctional mode of relating to someone does not always mean ending a relationship or cutting your ties. It can just mean drawing firming boundaries when you see the tell-tale signs of an energetic trap at play.

That act of non-participation – not allowing your buttons to be pushed – will force the dynamic to change one way or another.

Again – Be sure you do so with the intention to end your role in a particular exchange, not to swap your role for another in the drama triangle. Your intention needs to be crystal clear.

Being stuck in ´rescuer´, ´victim´, or ´perpetrator´ has its own set of problems – and each has been thoroughly romanticized-slash-vilified in some form or another. They´re powerful archetypes that have been used to tell parts of the story of humanity. Word to note: parts. It doesn´t make up the full story though.

Remember that who you are and the quality of your relationships has so much more range, breadth and depth that these labels can convey. Of course you will play out some of these dramas from time to time with other humans in your journey – – – the key is not to let it form a stable pattern or cycle ….

Give yourself the permission to Be your multifaceted, multi-dimensional self in all things that you do and all relationships that you are a part of. Dynamics that seek to limit you are not worth participating in.

As you walk way from the drama cycle, you walk towards a healthier, happier and more fulfilling life.

A MOVEMENT TOWARDS BALANCE: SUN CONJUNCTS THE SUPER-GALACTIC CENTER AT 1 LIBRA (23-24 SEPTEMBER 2017)

Astasahasrika_Prajnaparamita_Image_of_Prajnaparamita

Today and tomorrow are especially potent days as the Sun conjuncts the Super-Galactic Center at 1 Libra. Give thanks for the relationships that have entered (and left) your lives. This is a powerful time to sit with your Self and Source energy.

Just sit, listen, and ask Spirit what partnerships or collaborations you need to be a part of at this time?

What contracts or ties need to be released?

What allows you to find, once more, greater balance, harmony and truth in your life?

What perspectives are you blinding yourself to?

What voices within the self are you muting to keep the peace?

What needs acknowledgement in order for balance to be restored?

Remember that there is a Divine Law, Universal Justice that moves through all things and persons seen and unseen.

Have faith in this law and invite grace back into your life – especially if you have recently felt a lack of it.

This affirmation sums it up:

“I love myself for I am a beloved child of the universe and the universe lovingly takes care of me now. — Louise Hay “

SEPTEMBER EQUINOX (21 SEPT 2017) ALONGSIDE NAVARATRI (THE 9 NIGHTS OF THE GODDESS), THE JEWISH & ISLAMIC NEW YEAR CELEBRATIONS

21584991_1203964219707571_2140087886_n (1)

There´s a buzz in the air today and it comes from a confluence of several different celebrations across the globe – and of course the energy of the Equinox itself. The Hindus are celebrating the first day of Navaratri (the 9 Nights of the Goddess). It´s a festival that inspires millions of devotees to honor the Goddess in her many forms through prayers, fasting, massive statues paraded through the streets and so on. Alongside this, we see the Jewish celebration of Rosh Hashanah and the Moslem celebration of Muharram – both festivals heralding the New Year. The Jewish and Islamic calendars are calculated differently, and so this dual celebration is one to note. There may be other faiths who honor holy days at this time as well.

Now all of this fervent devotion and celebration is coming at a significant time: the Equinox. During the Equinox, we see the equalization of day and night before one begins to get longer than the other (which then leads to the Solstice, and back again). During the Equinox, we are asked to consider both light and darkness, masculine and feminine, yin and yang in equal measure, and to question the nature of duality and the binary categories it tends to be predicated on. This is … one of the two energetic Middle Points in which all exists in balance with one another (the other Equinox occurring in March).

It´s a time to look at how we can embrace paradox and reconcile multiple truths – which may appear to contradict one another at the surface. Some may reject that binary entirely, or embrace both sides of the coin. Be it through acceptance, dissolution or transcendence (and those too exist alongside one another), we are encouraged to explore new forms of consciousness and thought. In doing so, we rethink the way we see the world and the value judgements we use to navigate through Life. Some will of course sink deeper into judgements that lead to polarized thinking, or the us-vs-them mentality – and that too is their choice.

For me, the highlight of today´s astrology is the Yod or Finger of Fate involving the Moon in Libra, Pallas Athena in Taurus and Neptune in Pisces. Use this energy to be strategic in managing the practical needs of your material life, in finding spaces for pleasure, sensual embodiment and joy. Seek to find the Spiritual in your Material realities (and vice versa), rather than using one to escape the other. Ultimately our choices can lead us to a more equanimous, accepting and tolerant emotional state – one that makes it possible for all kinds of Truths to survive, thrive and co-exist alongside one another .

In other words: Not the day to be a tyrant or overly dogmatic about what you believe to be True.

Expand your possibilities, enjoy your time on this planet as an embodied being and realize that there is room for us all to be true to ourselves, as long as we walk in alignment with Spirit. What road we take on that Journey is entirely our own business.

Live and Let Live ❤

AN UNUSUALLY POWERFUL VIRGO NEW MOON (September 2017)

Gayatri_goddess_appears_before_Kaushika_rishi

 

This Virgo New Moon is unusually powerful for (at least) six reasons:

(1) It was preceded by the Moon´s occultation of Venus, Mars, Mercury and fixed Star Regulus

(2) It squares the Galactic Center at 27 Sagittarius and opposes Chiron at 26 Pisces

(3) It is part of a Yod (Finger of Fate) involving Venus (0 Virgo), Jupiter (25 Libra) and Chiron (26 Pisces). The New Moon lies close to the midpoint of Venus-Jupiter and opposes Chiron.

(4) The New Moon inconjuncts Uranus at 27 Aries

(5) Saturn (21 Sagittarius), Black Moon Lilith (24 Sagittarius), The North Node (Mean Calculation, 22 Leo) and Eris (23 Aries) form a Grand Fire Trine

(6) The New Moon squares Hebe (24 Sagittarius), Pholus (26 Sagittarius) and Achilles (28 Sagittarius) – whilst trining Sedna (26 Taurus) and Hephaestus (27 Taurus)

I´ll go through the significance of each alignment briefly:

The Moon´s occultation of Venus, Mars, Mercury and Regulus meant that it appeared in front of these bodies in the skies (from Earth´s perspective). When this happened, hidden concerns surrounding our relationship with love, finances, vitality, health, male-female dynamics, pride, entitlement, service and status – come up. Our emotions, especially those deeply buried bubbled up to make us raise vital questions, such as:

Why do we do what we do?
How do we treat others in the name of service?
What do we endure?
And is this truly in alignment with our Spiritual paths?

And so on … That´s just the tip of the ice-berg.

The New Moon´s square to the Galactic Center means that this is really the time to listen to our teachers, guides, mentors and gurus. You are going to see Saturn moving over the Galactic Center in November and December – and there you will be asked to consolidate the daily structure you develop now into a larger endeavour, effort or vision of yourself.

And – As I have explained in a previous article, despite the well-intentioned rhetoric – we are not our ´own guru´ . A guru´s role is a very specific one: he or she is responsible for the student´s spiritual welfare, especially as they access different levels of power, in different dimensional planes. And that´s putting it mildly – the term has been so diluted … (in the same way that doing yoga supposedly makes you a yogi or yogini… that´s a topic for another day).

Go as far as you can from on the basis of your own intuition and discernment. You´ll come to a place through your seekings where external assistance will be needed to go further. And with the level of energetic disinformation zooming about, this is a challenge you are likely to encounter. Tread carefully and choose your teachers and facilitators wisely..

Listen to those who guide you and inspire you – listen to the wayshowers who point towards the direction you need to head on. Sometimes your own wisdom and knowing is not enough. Otherwise Life would be a purely solo journey, and it isn´t so.

Your Teachers will show you the way. Heed their words -and – implement them into daily practice. Use the ideas you get and translate them into concrete, step-by-step practices that you use to structure your daily life.

Maybe it´s a mantra, an exercise or yoga regime, or visiting a shrine regularly, or taking a herb or simply brushing your teeth more – whatever these steps and tools are, find ways to make it part of your Daily Practice.

The Yod that this New Moon is a part of puts the attention on Chiron, the Wounded Healer. Use your intellect to discern through and put to rest karmic dynamics of woundedness and hurt carried through the lifetimes and generational line. This is the time to transcend spiritual identities built around the wound (seen as a site of damage, hollowness, etc.) , which in itself brooks great resistance.

When we transcend karmic patterns we allow ourselves to remember being whole. Our narratives of hurt, whilst remaining valid, simply play less of a role in understanding who we are. This requires a certain level of ego-death to materialize in the first place. A tall order, but certainly something this New Moon inspires us towards.

The inconjunct to Uranus (27 Aries) makes this New Moon particularly volatile. Erratic outbursts, abberant behaviors and/or breakthroughs/breakdowns are likely to occur. We are invited to build the foundation for a new sense of Selfhood to emerge. Those with placements near 27 Aquarius and/or Scorpio will experience this as a Yod (Finger of Fate), bringing them to the karmic crossroads of change. How you experience a Yod depends entirely on your chart and personal level of evolution.

The incredible Grand Fire Trine between Saturn, Black Moon Lilith, the North Node (mean calculation) and Eris – just flares it all up! You can use these energetic currents to create powerful new things, and to destroy the old. Sometimes the former requires the latter. Be mindful that such changes can hurt – not just yourself but the people around you. Weigh that cost in your mind before making decisions. For many, it will be the realization that rocking the boat, pouring out the Kool-Aid and breaking the group-think is EXACTLY what is needed at this time.

Whatever great revelations come will still need a pragmatic plan of action in order to be manifested. Seek out guides, facilitators and mentors who can help show you the way if you feel stuck. But remember to honor them for their time and energy. The last thing you want is to create a further cycle of dependence and resentment with all this.

Buttons will be pushed as the New Moon squares multiple bodies in Sagittarius (in addition to the Galactic Center). Hebe reminds us to consider the vulnerability of the Maiden as she navigates a sexually complex world, Pholus tells us that whatever we uncover will point to deeper patterns in the work of healing the ancestral line and Achilles reminds us to honor our own vulnerabilities honestly.

This is the place to remember to stay humble, teachable and flexible. The way we view reality and the scripts and paradigms we use may not be the best possible ones. Again, the search for a teacher or guide who can help you navigate is highlighted – as are the potential consequences of finding one with false feet. Remember that you feed the cycle of dependence with this Moon, or, with your choices break that pattern.

The New Moon´s trine to Sedna and Hephaestus tells us a similar picture, in different ways. It´s a powerful time for those seeking to find healing from sexual abuse, memories of neglect, abandonment and betrayal. Healing comes as we honor the memories we carry in our cells and choose to release them (if appropriate to do so). Many modalities exist to help you with this kind of work. Forgiveness appears to be a key tool (as always, but especially so now) in the work of reprogramming cellular memory.

I´m chuckling here as this was pretty much what my teacher said yesterday – I arrived at the same conclusion deductively. I have also started an exercise regime that focuses upon the release of such codings from the physical body. It´s a good confirmation for me.

Remember that at the end of the day, the New Moon in Virgo encourages you to be self-disciplined, self-directing and self-sufficient. Whilst we take guidance and direction from others, we retain a strong element of self-sufficience. Finding a space where this quality exists alongside humility and teachability is perhaps one of the strongest challenges and opportunities highlighted through this New Moon.

You may also see concerns coming up in matters of health (especially the nerves and belly), travel (especially overseas, for pilgrimages, education, citizenship matters) and questions of a karmic and/or metaphysical nature (the kind of thing that is hidden and you may have a harder time putting your finger on).

Work towards creating a daily routine, habit or ritual that incorporates your work of service, whilst honoring the vessel of the body and its maintenance. Solid boundaries help here as often service-providers overextend themselves and end up drained and exhausted. As the saying goes, you can´t fill another´s cup when your own is empty.

Honor your body and put the work into what it needs for you to be healthy in mind, body and spirit. Remember to rest and stay adequately hydrated. Honor the Earth and her nurturance of All as part of rituals and prayers.

Remember to look to November/December of this year as Saturn conjuncts the Galactic Center and squares this New Moon. As usual, you will also see some seeds ripen from the intentions set now 6 months down the line, during the Virgo Full Moon (March 2018)

I hope this article is of value and interest to you. For those interested, I had a lovely conversation with Rabbi Melinda Bernstein on this Moon and related topics this morning: You can access that here:

Super-Quick Note on Vesta Leaving Virgo!

Chocolate_Lab_Puppy_Asleep

 

I feel lazy today. Like, not wanting to work or do anything much. Which is about as common for me as an icestorm in a desert.

So naturally I checked the skies 

Vesta´s about to leave Virgo – and with it, the opportunity to release burdens you´ve been carrying in the name of service. For the workaholic-facilitator types, this is a great blessing. Sometimes we overextend ourselves and sometimes it damn well isn´t necessary.

Others may choose to step up to areas of service they´ve been neglecting. It´s a great time to dedicate yourself truthfully to a path of care, nurture or service as well.

Really depends where you are at. Just listen to your body .. you´ll know what to do.

All this happens within the next 4 hours. . . . Then, The Priestess enters Libra. Totally different kettle of fish.

Enjoy!

Mercury conjuncts Mars in Virgo; Virgo Sun squares Black Moon Lilith in Sagittarius

rose-in-the-hands

Mercury prepares to conjunct Mars at 7 Virgo.  The Sun and Apollo (23 Virgo) square Black Moon Lilith, Ixion and Hebe (23 Sagittarius).

It’s an important time to think about the work and service we’ve come to do in this physical world. And to consider the health and wellness of the body,  the vessel that allows us to do the work of Spirit. Paying attention to your stress levels,  mental and digestive health is a good investment of time and energy.  Think about the tools you use in your work and your daily habits and rituals. Stay grounded, discerning and pragmatic, especially when your goals transcend the visible horizon.  Keep your eye on the smaller details as that is what makes up the bigger picture.
You may find authority figures, teachers, preachers, politicians and other ideologues (and ideologies) coming your way. Stay out of the crossfire as debates on truth rarely yield benefit when one or more participants refuse to recognize other possibilities as equally valid. Stick to your path and recognize the others have the same right. Focus on the good you can do at the present moment, bit by bit, day by day.
Many will be triggered by their wounds, vulnerabilities and feelings of exclusion. Do your best to find the deeper insights through those experiences and the memories that arise. And then do what you need to do. Strive to find the place of clarity within no matter what is happening around you. That is how you can be of the greatest service on this planet at this time.
Look back to August 1-2 & 22-23 when Mercury went over these points, bearing in mind the influence of the Solar Eclipse on August 21. You’ll find the answers you need.
One foot forward, then the next.
Blessings,

Energy Update (12th September 2017)

21616533_1203975329706460_6716488378164157509_n

The skies are more or less saturated with the same energy we´ve been seeing since the August Eclipses and the Pisces Full Moon. It´s a wild mix of things and many of us are feeling a little lost through it all. That´s perfectly natural as there is so much going on.

Over the next two days, we´re going to be seeing two important aspects made to Saturn (21 Sagittarius). Tomorrow, it will trine Venus in Leo, and the day after it will square the Sun in Virgo.

Keep the larger picture in mind as best you can. For those of you letting go ot paths, teachers and philosophies of life that no longer resonate – you may want to let a new ´larger picture´ emerge from the debris of things. It´s hard to see where you´re supposed to be headed when you´re surrounded by water – literally or figuratively.

Be aware that Uranus (27 Aries) trines the Galactic Center (27 Sagittarius) at this time whereas the North Node (23 Leo) trines Eris (23 Aries) – among many other powerful alignments. We are going to be striking out in new directions for ourselves, especially if old leaders, teachers, lovers, approaches to joy and direction no longer resonate.

Those who can travel and are called to certain spaces on this globe – do so. Exercise reasonable caution in your movements and let your intuition guide you to where you need to be. Travel can awaken you to greater realizations at this time, as can the expansion of the mind through learning, reading or listening to those who teach.

You may find situations arising over the next two days involving children, creative collaborators, romance, leaders, relationships of service, rituals, and/or health matters arise.

This is all part of a much larger alignment . . . a build-up to Saturn´s conjunction with the Galactic Center in November. The massive clearings we´re seeing across the planet are preparing all of us to be exactly where we need to be at that time.

Stay open to the Universe and let things unfold. Respond as best you can in the present, trusting that you´re walking the path you need to travel – even if that feels like treading water at this time.

Blaze: The Fire in the Skies and from the Heart of the Sun (7 September 2017)

21442005_1202495726521087_1506729842_n

Today´s been a very fiery day. The North Node (23 Leo) and Mercury-who-has-recently-stationed-direct (28 Leo), trine Saturn (21 Sagittarius), Black Moon Lilith (23 Sagittarius), The Galactic Center (27 Sagittarius) and Uranus (28 Aries). That´s a whole lot of Fire Energy as part of an immense Grand Fire Trine. On top of that ,the Sun emitted the biggest solar flare we´ve seen in the past 12 years earlier today.

Generally speaking – this energy has been all about getting deeper and realer with the root of what motivates, inspires and moves us to passion, action and presence. It´s also an … epic time to move through some of the trauma and repressed anger we associated with the disenfranchised, marginalized Feminine experience.

Some of you may be faring badly and have symptoms such as emotional highs and lows, food cravings, headaches, etc. These are common experiences and are (in most cases) just your body´s way of calibrating it all.

And some of you may be soaring and doing extremely well. If so, I suggest putting that energy to good use.

Today I was working on lower chakra activations with The Sisterhood of SHE. It was a very powerful experience for all of them. We ended up working with solar energy as part of the activation, taking that fire and using it to burn through etheric debris. Which is not a common practice and not one I would recommend unless you really know what you´re doing.

We got a lot done and it has initiated a deeper process of energetic stock-taking – the effects will continue to unfold over the course of the year as Saturn itself reaches the Galactic Center.

It´s been an honor to play a part in the awakening process of this amazing group of women. And I am sure that the effects will continue to unfold.

Now … I really gotta get some rest. Hope to be back writing more regular reports soon. You can get a little more intel in the fb link below.  Just below that is a video link to an introductory talk I did on the Root Chakra for a previous workshop.

 

Peace out ❤

Bairavee xoxo
