NEW MOON IN SAGITTARIUS – OPPOSED THE SEVEN SISTERS (PLEIADES), ACTIVATION OF THE GREAT GODDESS FIRE TRINE, LILITH’S FINAL ROAR IN LEO – AND MUCH, MUCH MORE!

Sagittarius New Moon

Blessings to All. We’ve all felt the effects of this powerful New Moon in the sign of Sagittarius at 0 degrees. New Moons are portals for seeding intentions, which you can then see manifest or culminate during the corresponding (Sagittarius) Full Moon of that sign – in six months’ time. So this is a time to pay attention to the energetic intentions, commitments, affirmations that you are sending out into the Universe – at the Conscious and Sub-Conscious Level.

Sagittarius is linked with the energy of Growth, Expansion of Perception, Crossing Boundaries and Reaching for the Stars! (Yes it’s linked with Astrology as well). This also relates with matters of higher education, learning, teaching, foreign travel, or seeking structured tutelage in matters of Spirit. It is linked with the energy of the Guru, which is represented by deities such as Dakshinamoorthy (the ‘Teacher’ form of Lord Shiva). It can be any deity, from any pantheon, who represents the Pathway of Learning for you, irrespective of tradition. It can also refer to a physical guru, or teacher.

This New Moon amplifies the energies of pre-existing configurations in the sky – namely – the Great Goddess Fire Trine (Uranus Rx at 12 Aries trine Juno at 14 Leo trine Ceres at 10 Sagittarius) and the November-long Yod (Pluto at 11 Capricorn sextile Chiron Retrograde at 13 Pisces, both inconjunct Juno at 14 Leo) – I’ll provide links to these aspects for those who want more info.

In addition to all of this, this particular New Moon is opposed the Pleiades! Many of you who work with such energies would have had the chance to directly download information from the Seven Sisters Cluster and the energies associated with them. Both the New Moon and the Seven Sisters square Black Moon Lilith, creating a powerful T-Square – more on that below!

This is a particularly potent New Moon as the Sun and Moon conjunction are part of a large stellium involving Pallas Athena (at 14 Scorpio) , Mercury (at 21 Scorpio), Saturn (at 26 Scorpio), Venus (at 7 Sagittarius) and Ceres (at 10 Sagittarius)). Many different energetic influences are at play here, some of which provide a strong emphasis on Scorpio’s energies. So this is not your ‘typical’ Sagittarian energy. It’s one that keeps working upon the themes of the Underworld, the Sub-Conscious, issues of Power, Boundaries, Violation, Regeneration and Healing – through that process.

Both Chiron and Neptune in Pisces square Venus and Ceres in Sagittarius (at the time of writing this) – and so that tells me that many are finding significant challenges to the way they see their Spiritual Paths at this time. It’s a clear call to look at what ideas you have surrounding your path and whether you are attached to these ideas. It’s time to question those ideological attachments. Judgmentalism is on the cards – and many will be using the words of ‘Truth’ to justify the Ego.

Those with astrological placements near 9-13 Virgo or Gemini will either experience this as a Grand Mutable Cross or T-Square. Adaptation is the name of the game, and you need to leave your ego at the door to play it – you’ll be surprised at the rewards you uncover.

Juno, Jupiter (at 22 Leo) and Black Moon Lilith (at 29 Leo) are squared Pallas Athena, Mercury and Saturn in Scorpio. The tension is between the Fixed elements of Fire and Water. A challenge arises in terms of how we demonstrate and express our true, most vulnerable selves and how – at the same time – we maintain and uphold our energetic boundaries and integrity at the same time. The element of the Dark Feminine Rising is highlighted with Black Moon Lilith at 29 (Anaretic) Degrees Leo.

Those with astrological placements at or near 14 Taurus-1 Gemini and/or 14 Aquarius – 1 Pisces will experience this as a Grand Fixed Cross or a Fixed T-Square.

The Seven Sisters (Pleiades) Cluster is at 0 Gemini at this time. This feeds into the energies discussed. This is a perfect time to powerfully bridge and channel the teachings of Heaven and the Deep Earth. In truth, there is no Difference, except in Perception.

Pay attention to that suppressed feminine instinct, history or body or emotion at this time – This is her Final Roar before She enters Virgo in 5 days’ time. She will not return to Leo until January 2023.

Jupiter is inconjunct Mars (at 20 Capricorn) at this time – those with astrological placements at or near 20 Pisces will experience this as a powerful Yod or Finger of Fate pointing towards a key lesson or teaching in your sense of authenticity/vulnerability/inner child/sacral energy. The lesson is likely to come from a Teacher, who could also be your romantic partner – or even your child (as Leo is associated with all of this). The way you use your assertive energy is going to be scrutinized, and some fundamental way in which you conceptualize the idea of ‘achievement’ or ‘accomplishment’ is going to have to be transformed at this time.

Jupiter is also trined Vesta (at 24 Sagittarius) – again – the energy of the Priestess or Spiritual Facilitator comes in to shake up what you think you know about the Spiritual Path 😉 Stay open to the guidance that comes and question strong denials or over-identifications with any kind of Path at this time. (Even those who take the Title of Priestess or Spiritual Facilitator – make sure it’s coming from a place of Spirit, and not Egotism). Such checks are a natural and healthy part of your spiritual evolution, so don’t worry about it <3

Uranus Retrograde is also inconjunct Pallas Athena. Those with astrological placements near 15 Virgo are going to experience this as a powerful Yod/Finger of Fate which directly relates to your ability to Connect from the ‘Higher’/Transcendental Mind. Awakenings are likely to occur in a powerful way, transforming the way you carry and embody your burgeoning Consciousness.

Pallas Athena in this potential yod speaks to the way we stand our ground and hold to our truths. But again – here lies the pitfall of judgment. Be sure that what or whom you stand for is aligned with Spirit, rather than the Ego. Priestesses and other Spiritual Facilitators are likely to feel this energy very powerfully as they will be asked to re-conceptualize their understanding and embodiment of The Path.

Finally – Goddessians will be pleased to note that Venus (at 7 Sagittarius) is now a part of the Great Goddess Fire Trine. This is a beautiful time to attract and manifest powerful teachings that will take you forward in your spiritual Journeys and connection with the Sacred Feminine. Be aware of the pitfall of the Ego-Identification that can equally result with Venus in this position.

To phrase it differently – What you think may not be true because it ‘feels’ pleasurable, or good, to think so. Venus enjoys her creature comforts and the values/mode of evaluation she stands for is one that will resist change unless you make the active choice to do so. Allow yourself to suspend your idea of what ‘must’ be Truth as you open yourself Up to the Divine.

Vanakam, Namaste and Blessings to All.

THE GREAT GODDESS FIRE TRINE: SHEKINAH/SHAKTI RISING (NOW – TILL OCT 2015!) – A NEW CHAPTER BEGINS!

Great Goddess Fire Trine

The energies of the Goddess are strongly represented in the skies by a powerful Grand Fire Trine, involving: Juno, Uranus Retrograde and Vesta/Ceres (in the 3rd corner).

This alignment encourages us to light the three beacons which will ignite our collective Re-Awakening, Re-cognition and Re-turn of the Feminine Principle. Some of the keywords you might associate with this energy include: Self – Path of Service – Sacral Reconnection – Creation – Passion – Embodiment – Feminine Rising!

The_Flame_-_Odilon_Redon

The Grand Fire Trine began at 6:32 pm Oct 25th and will end at 6:11 pm Dec 14 (GMT + 8). The GFT alignment re-forms in January 2015, and is constantly revisited for most of 2015, till the start of October to be precise! (albeit involving different planetary bodies)

This is an exciting energy that clearly indicates the acceleration of the rate of collective awakening as we continue to embody the Feminine Principle through ‘I AM’ Consciousness. In other words – it’s Wake-Up Time, and all of our Spiritual Alarm Clocks have just begun to Ring!

Set your seeds now, my friends, for the internal and external work that you do between now and mid-December will strongly set the tone for the rest of this year, and much of the next year.

Here is a brief description of what each component of the GFT brings to us:

Juno (Leo) – The energy of the Soulmate, particularly through a child or a romantic partner, teaches you a lesson in self-expression, the need for authenticity and ultimately a reconnection with the Sacral Creativity of the Feminine. These same lessons can come through your individual efforts in working with your own creative and sacral (Swadishthana/Sexual) energies.

Juno ultimately seeks to complete and complement who we are.

She is seen as the ‘marriage partner’ or soulmate – I find – due to a patriarchal reading of astrology which sees the male subject as the dominant one. A quick study of Juno’s worship shows her invocation in matters of birth, liminal crossings, marriage, defense, etc. I interpret her energy as one of completion, of seeking one’s connection with the Divine Feminine Herself.

Call her Shekinah, Shakti, Gaia-Sophia, Asherah – She represents the flow of all of these energies – of ‘Goddess Consciousness’ as it circulates through and from you as part of the movement of energy in the Universe.

Jupiter (Leo) – Jupiter loosely conjuncts Juno between Nov 26 till the end of the GFT in 2014 (i.e. December 14). Jupiter’s energy amplifies the energies of Juno (flow of the Divine Feminine) and brings us the gifts and wisdom of teachers and guides seeking to facilitate our journeys with the Eternal-Transcendental She. Note that Jupiter begins its Retrograde in Leo on Dec 8 2014.

Uranus Rx (Ari) – Uranus Retrograde in Aries facilitates this energy of awakening, often through perceived ‘errors’ in communication or perception, and/or in an abrupt form. As we awaken to the Truth of who we Are (i.e. Pure, Creative, Radiant Spirit), we will radically alter our embodiment of Self – the way we carry, represent, assert and simply exist as individuals in our own rights, entitled to our own spaces. I expect many breakthrough of consciousness to come through the method of Gnosis at this time.

Transiting 3rd corner components – dates given are of the duration of their role in the Great Goddess Fire Trine:

Oct 25 – Nov 15 2014 – Vesta (Sag)

The archetype of Priest/ess or Spiritual Facilitator is called to Serve. We are drawn to Paths which involve an expansion of the way we see ourselves and our Spiritual Journeys.

Nov 12 – Dec 14 2014 – Ceres (Sag)

The Asteroid Goddess of Nurture teaches us how to nurture ourselves and others by engaging in our sense of exploration, expansion – seeking our way forward on our Paths – be it through physical travel or journeys of the mind through higher education, philosophy, structured religious or spiritual workings.

The third corner will also be aspected by Mercury, Sun, Venus, Saturn and Pallas Athena as they eventually enter Sagittarius. We will be feeling a stellium of these energies in the 3rd week of November, as all of them feed into the GFT itself. The Moon of course interacts with this alignment and activates it through conjunctions and oppositions (in particular).

This is truly a time to celebrating the Rising of Goddess Consciousness in all Beings. I expect to see a great surge of creative works, written books on the philosophy and path to reach (and embody) Shakti/Shekinah and a radical awakening in our individual and collective consciousness. Such an exciting time to be alive.

Yes my friends, the next chapter, following the intensity and aftermath of the Grand Cardinal Cross of 2014 – has officially begun.

Shakti Awakes

I leave you with the motto I use on my page The Goddess, The Serpent and The Sea: Building Pathways of Light

ARISE, AWAKEN & BE
