A Grand Fixed Nodal Cross is headed our way in the next 18 hours. The Taurus Moon opposes Jupiter, Vesta and Mars in Scorpio, whilst both square the South Node in Aquarius and North Node & Ceres in Leo.
That´s a very potent crucible of energy to work with.
Lots of potential for creation, but equally of destruction.
Fixed signs (Taurus, Aquarius, Scorpio, Leo) are resistant to change and are associated with stability, fixity and endurance.
It takes a sky like this to create such change.
It´s the kind of energy where you (ideally) make incremental adjustments so that you can change a long-standing structure or pattern. Even if you do get that lightbulb moment on what needs re-alignment, you still need to take gradual steps to get it done.
You´ll be feeling the buildup to this alignment as the Moon moves towards 17 degrees Taurus. It will take most of the next day to fully wind down as well – so you´re looking at most of the 28-29th (or 30th for those in Asia/Australia) before the energy eases somewhat.
You may see some adjustments needed in the way you spend your resources / energy / finances and those you share / create it with or receive it from. It´s a good time for health-checkups and financial assessments in general.
If feeling drained consider where your energetic leaks or lack of boundaries are.
If noticing that others are feeling drained around you, consider where you may be taking more energy than they are willing or able to give you.
This is not the time to run from shadow, but to confront it so that we may feel more aligned, integrated and present.
If overwhelmed by your own inner dramas or that of others, then
Focus on what keeps you materially and emotionally grounded.
It could be a bowl of soup, walking barefoot on the earth (weather permitting), holding a loved one´s hands, etc. Grounding practices are highly recommended at this time.
The South Node asks you to let go of outmoded ideas surrounding friendships, ideologies, soulmate/tribes. You don´t need to hold onto any of these things if they do not resonate with you. What is yours will come to you, you do not need to go chasing after it or to erase your identity to find it.
The North Node and Ceres remind us all that our personal and collective trajectory of growth comes through the expression of our innermost child-self. The one that is spontaneous, creative, expansive and expressive (in its own unique, inimitable way). Spend a little more time nurturing this quality in yourself or around others who are able and willing to evoke those qualities within you.
Where possible, try to make time to spend with your mother / primary nurturer or equivalents. It´s a good time to connect with Mother (as person, practice or archetype).
In the wider world, it is also a good time to pay attention to what the political leadership is saying. The devil lies in the details (and often in what is implied, rather than said outright): remember to read between the lines. You may also see changes coming in our relationship with virtual communities, electronic currencies, and so on. (And remember the Nodes stay in these signs till late 2018!)
Now all of these energies – in the Fixed Cross – can lead you to creative breakthroughs – but equally – breakdowns. It all depends on how you manage it. Some will use this energy to deepen their romantic, sensual, erotic expressions with intimate partnerships – and others might decide to throw the towel in and walk. It really comes down to where you & your partners are in your journey – at best I can show you themes, or likely areas of influence in a general article.
Those involved in business may – depending on their charts & partners´ charts – use this energy to make significant changes in how the business is organized, who controls the flow of income, who invests, how much say they get, etc. Do background checks on those who seek to come into your business and go the extra mile in your due diligence. Scorpio is known for hiding things 😉
Pluto inconjuncts the North Node / Ceres and trines the Moon. You may find deep, uncomfortable emotions and realizations coming out when you consider your own accomplishments, level of maturity and sense of being empowered in the world. Not all of that baggage is yours, some of it may be ancestral. Others may be pushed to redefine their careers and find a more satisfying legacy to leave behind in the world. Those with placements near 17-18 Gemini Pisces will experience a powerful Yod ( Finger of Fate). Situations will arise, and you´ll be expected to respond to it in a way that honors your own authenticity and sovereignty. Be aware of projection dynamics.
Sit with the discomfort of truths presented that may arise rather than pointing the finger at truth-tellers.
Mercury trines the North Node from Sagittarius, just fresh from the end of its Retrograde. At this time, it still conjuncts the Great Attractor (14 Sagittarius – read my previous articles).
Watch the ideas that you encounter, or are drawn to … they contain valuable clues for your future. For some of you, it may be ideas that are bubbling out through your own inner consciousness (as it connects to Cosmos in any case). For those with placements near 17-18 Cancer / Libra, this creates another Yod (Finger of Fate) along with the Taurus Moon. Watch where your ideas take you, and once you get a sense of them – choose whether this is the path you wish to walk along.
Sometimes you will be drawn to paths that are less healthy for you, and sometimes you may reject the ones (and teachers) who will take you along in a more aligned manner.
People will project anything onto someone who tells them something they do not want to hear.
In other words – Not everything your conscious mind is saying is necessarily the best answer. Take your time to sit with decisions – with your entire consciousness – before deciding. Some of you may commit to new paradigms (and drop old ones), or embark on a new journey (or decide to cut one short) – there´s a lot of variability here (and thank goodness for Free Will!)
Astrologically speaking, there´s a lot more going on (such as Saturn , Sun, Venus, Black Moon Lilith in Capricorn) – but I figured the Fixed Cross and potential yods were where people needed the biggest heads up).

** Sessions are temporarily on hold. Am recovering from an near-fatal accident on the day that the Sun conjuncted Saturn in Capricorn i.e. 21 Dec 2017. Am physically okay save for a few bruises, but tire easily – it was a miracle I survived and I count my blessings. This article was enough mental effort for a day, but I felt it needed writing.

Today has been a remarkable day. Probably the best day of my life on record thus far.
I visited some of the blessed lands of New Mexico, and understood its nuances. Ancient lineages connect these lands with my own and there is a shared energetic language.
My travels to this part of New Mexico were entirely taken care of by strangers who are now friends, and to whom I am absolutely grateful. It was pure orchestration by the Divine.
I visited Abiquiu Lake, Ghost Ranch, Echo Rock, Chimayo – and each piece had its story to tell. Some were peaceful, others dislodged or restless – and some were certainly waiting. As a friend said, New Mexico is both the Land of Enchantment – or – Entrapment – which I entirely concur with. You do need to keep your wits about you when travelling some places. But this part of the state has been extraordinary.
I was particularly chuffed to realize that Taos Pueblo, a place that I had visited twice (and received an invitation to stay at for next time) was in all likelihood, the oldest continuously inhabited structure in America. (That we know of). And I have utterly fallen in love with the Turtle at Truth or Consequences.
India is still my home at heart, but I do find this as a sister-land.
Some of my experiences here have been harsh, and they have served to ultimately push me out of harm´s way and into the arms of those who operate from a place of love, rather than self-centeredness. They have also been a means of the land testing me to see my own alignment and value systems. And I passed.
Ancient lands have a way of getting to know you and your intentions, which is why pilgrimages are … very interesting. Nothing happens by chance or without significance on a trip like this.
The friends whom I have met here are … not-so-surprisingly Capricorns / Capricorn Risings with key connections to the Great Attractor, Galactic Center, and my own chart.
I could not wish for better company. We were in perfect alignment with each other, the land, and the requirements of the time.
This trip was clearly planned lifetimes ago.
As I travel, I feel into each place I am called to. Some of these places require nothing of me, and others wish me to acknowledge them. And so I do, when I feel it is appropriate. And magic occurs. I´d like to talk about one experience in particular, though this day has been full of synchronicity, grace, understanding and … alignment.
In this video ( https://youtu.be/aIXE0U5SJBE ) , I´m at Echo Rock. As we approached the natural echo-amphitheatre carved out of rock, pressure and time – I felt my inner balance shifting. Time had lost relevance, and all I could feel was that powerful Solar Consciousness. My conscious thoughts left and I saw visions of older spiritual teachers and templates that shared resonance with this area.
I finally put words to the experience. It was as though I was being pulled to the center of a Void. A space in which all things were possible. It was an incredible force.
As I faced the center of the rock, I began to chant. I don´t know what happened, or how, or why or what. But I knew the work was done. My voice echoed throughout the chamber.
And turned and left a different person.
There are no other words for it.

Remember that in this time powerful seeds are being set. And they´re not about today, tomorrow, or even a few years from now. We´re talking about decades.
That might feel intimidating, but it does not have to be.
If you don´t know where you´re meant to be headed, make no decision except that you choose to be aligned to the path of your greatest evolutionary potential, grace, joy and blessings – for yourself and all others.
Set the intention that you will not be deterred by the counter-waves of disinformation and distraction that are especially being projected by the mainstream media. Or in the well-meaning, but sometimes very destructive idealizations within spiritual communities.
Remember that you are Spirit manifest in multiple dimensions. Returning to that multidimensional awareness can make it that much more likely that you find your answers in the 3D.
There is no magic spell or healing modality that will do that for you at this time. Only your conscious will and intent. As we are entering a time in which (eventually) no intermediaries will be required in accessing the frequency of Divine energy.
We will have to re-think, re-learn and develop entirely new languages of what ´healing´ looks like. An extraordinary threshold exists between what aligns with the old Piscean paradigm, and that which we are all aligning towards creating.
Reclaim your identity as a Sovereign Being, a Co-Creator alongside or within Divine Consciousness.
From the astrological perspective, all of this links up with tomorrow´s (Dec. 17) New Moon in Sagittarius conjunct the Galactic Center, followed by Saturn´s entry into Capricorn (December 19).
We will continue receiving messages from Sagittarius (and the Great Attractor and Galactic Center) until Mercury enters Capricorn on January 10.
So it will be a little while till this wave of energy and intensity subsides – and then we begin re-building the structures that hold our lives together on this planet.
There´s so much to be done. Let´s begin.
This is probably the most important video ( ) and message that I´ve shared so far. I am grateful to be where I am, doing the work I am doing on this planet.
The video discusses what Alignment with the Galactic Center looks like. I´ve linked it up together with my travels in Hawaii and the US and the Goddess in Vedic astrology who rules the Moola Nakshatra (where the Center is located). Whilst others will have different ways and paths of alignment, mine – at this phase of my evolution – is that of the Sun.
There are of course other paths, but they are ones that require years of training, instruction and discernment. You have to live them, and they come at a great cost. They are not to be trifled with. And those who are excited by that idea may not want to walk it for a while. The planet is not yet ready for it.
For those looking for a version of the Gayathri mantra that matches the intonation used in temples for ritual use – go here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Kb0q9J8lPA . If you want the best result, stick with the original.
Thank you all for your support. I thank my teachers in all realms for bringing me safely to this .. incredible moment in time. It has certainly been .. a great trial. But I see why I encountered so many obstacles to get here.
I remain Sovereign, and in Service that is Aligned with my well-being and all-that-is.

This is a day to wake up to the reality of your being.
Do you walk your talk?
Are your greater aspirations and worldviews in alignment with who you are in 3-D day-to-day living?
Do you feel excluded, ostracized, vilified by others- and what are you willing to do to change the status quo that denied you?
It is a powerful day to honor the Rising Feminine in all of us but to also acknowledge the more toxic responses that can emerge as Eris seeks to re-claim her space in the cosmos.
Given that this particular mythological character found it okay to start a war because she was not invited to a wedding party – consider this a suggestion to watch out for overreaction.
With so much power in the skies, this is the perfect time to demand accountability and action taken against those who insult the Feminine and deny her right of independent existence. And to collectively state: WE´RE NOT GOING ANYWHERE. WE´RE DONE BENDING OVER BACKWARDS. WE WILL NO LONGER ACCEPT ABUSE.
But remember – sometimes those who are victimized seek to re-claim their spaces in ways that further perpetuate that cycle, rather than ending it. Victim then becomes abuser, and at the end of the day we are all far worser off.
Whatever comes up for you today, remember to ask yourself how you can respond to the situation with Centeredness and Love. Seek to end cycles of disenfranchisement and pain, rather than to perpetuate them further.
There are many ways to transform this planet. One burns it to the ground to re-set it entirely, another re-builds it bit by bit.
Love is not about being comfortable. It can be, and it´s nice when it is.
But really, they´re not the same thing.
The ancients understood that the vibration of Love had nothing to do with whether you liked it or not.
Their greatest spirit-workers were those who did not make things seem comfortable. They created and forged new paradigms that often left them at the margins of society.
Because Love did not let them sit in Falsehood.
It tends to be less uncomfortable for the one embodying that energy, and more so for those around them.
Which was why the ancients very .. very.. clearly stated that it was expressed through Compassionate Detachment.
They didn´t say if it was a happy or a sad experience. Or even a kind one.
But what spiritual narrative has shown us is that the embodiment of Love-in-Spirit-and-Flesh was never truly accepted by whatever time and culture it presented itself to.
Because real Love scares the crap out of those who use the label without embodying that vibration. Especially authorities, powers and institutions that prefer to keep the status quo.
Those who carry it have – in the past – been persecuted, chased, vilified or excluded from the creation of religious narratives and histories. Or they removed themselves from it.
Mary Magdalene is a powerful case in point.
As is Jesus.
Siddartha could only become Buddha by leaving the privilege of his wealth and right of kingship behind. He discovered the Middle Path afterwards.
Karaikal Ammaiyar left her family and renounced her physical beauty, identity and caste and identified herself as a pey (wraith) to follow Shiva into the cremation grounds.
And the list goes on … and on…
Now I´m not saying that to be spiritual you have to be beaten up, excluded and living in poverty. That´s not a necessary baseline. And making that false equation justifies accepting abuse.
That is not why the Divine put you on this planet at this time.
What I´m saying is that talking about the Flame of Spiritual Love when you´re in your comfort bubble raises questions. As Love does not stay silent when your neighbour has nothing to eat, or is excluded from their birthright.
These are extraordinary times and it is wise to consider what other extraordinary beings did in their Search and Embodiment of the Sacred.
To do what they did, they had to absolutely honor their essence of Being-and-the-Divine-within. And destroyed all idea of the Ego-Mind-Self .
Their choices may seem self-punitive to the outside world, but they are only truly possible with an abundance of inner wealth, energy and conviction. The alchemy of spirit does not work when such radical acts come from a place of lack within. And that has nothing to do with one´s external world. We have simply become used to making that equation.
Mercury Retrograde is at the Galactic Center (27 Sagittarius): Let go, observe and watch the waveform emerge!
Hello everyone. I´ve been on pilgrimage in South India for the past 2 weeks. Been updating with astro-reports when possible. I´m just about to head out to the US. Flight is tomorrow. I should have more internet accessibility to keep you updated.
In terms of astrology, the Saturn-Galactic Center conjunction steals the show at present. Here is a brief video ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TAhcuM8H2TE ) on it and how hypersensitives can mitigate some of the more overwhelming energetic effects this alignment has brought about.
For those of you who prefer text – the key message is this:
The pressure is on as we are asked to make decisions that can alter the trajectory of our developmental paths over the next three decades. There´s a lot on the line.
And given the state of the world, the urgency this creates- can- be the right push or impetus for badly-needed change.
But it can make for a rough experience for sensitives, empaths and cosmic channelers.
It is perfectly acceptable, even healthy, to speak with your guides and close your channels or degree of receptivity at this time.
Focus on what you can handle, and ask your guides to handle the rest.
As I mentioned previously, I am just about to fly off to America. I´ll be in Kauai for a few days (for the Saturn-Galactic Center alignment), then will be heading over to New Mexico for the ceremony that originally called me to venture stateside.
A big thank-you to all those who have supported me in making this journey possible thus far ❤
As of now, I don´t have a fixed agenda or itinerary. If you´d like to host me, meet me or work with me on projects, etc. drop me a line and we´ll see what is possible.
More info in this video ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wsxv9vMj-ds ) :
I´ve also adopted a new approach to my work, which I shall be fleshing out in the remaining parts of 2017. 2018 is going to bring some key changes in the way I deliver my material and how it is accessed. Stay tuned for updates.
Those of you on FB can access this change in policy and the rationale behind it via this post: https://www.facebook.com/bairavee.balasubramaniam/posts/1265875703516422
I´m waking my talk and drawing boundaries where I need to. And I encourage you to do the same during this pivotal time of change.
