7-8 AUGUST 2015: STAR OF DAVID / SHADKONA YANTRA / HEXAGRAM / GRAND SEXTILE IN THE SKIES WITH THE SUPER-GALACTIC CENTER ( & the Moon, Mars, Black Moon Lilith, The North Node, Saturn)

Grand Sextile

Grand Sextiles look like the Star of David (Judaism) or Shadkona Yantra (Hinduism) surrounded by a Hexagon, also known as a Hexagram. They represent powerful portals of manifestation as they merge multiple elements and houses across the astrological chart. The ancients viewed the symbol as a symbol of Divine assurance, guaranteeing their protection and their ability to manifest what they desire.

So it’s best to watch your actions, intentions and words (more so than usual) as they represent the energy you’re putting into a powerful manifestation engine.

Phrasing it in a different way –

Be careful what you wish for¬†ūüėȬ†as you will receive it in some form or another.

This Grand Sextile is particularly powerful as it involves the Super-Galactic Center (1 Libra) and the North Node (2 Libra), we’re sending out powerful energetic ripples that will further our individual evolution as we learn how to coexist with ourselves and others through partnerships – in life, business, and interpersonal shadow dynamics. The influence of the Super Galactic Center (with its supermassive black hole) draws or attracts to a very, very deep point of inner awareness and understanding.

It’s basically like dancing the tango with the most powerful body of energy imaginable. It leads the dance, and the way you follow in turn (there’s no question about that response) determines the nature of the path you take and your experience of it.

 

Let’s look at some of the players within this alignment:

Moon – early Gemini – Emotional energies/intuitive focus upon the mental constructs we learnt in early childhood. We reflect upon the emotions surrounding our early ways/methods of perceiving the world.

Mars – 29 Cancer – Preparing to leave the sign of The Home/Mother, Mars pushes forwards in the domestic sphere. Expect bold, brash actions and powerful emotional declarations.

Black Moon Lilith – 28 Virgo – The Dark Priestess prepares to complete her lessons in the sign of Virgo. Lessons surrounding the Shadow aspect of the Feminine come through strongly at this time.

Super-Galactic Center – 1 Libra – described above

North Node – 2 Libra – described above

Saturn – 28 Scorpio – The Karmic Taskmaster asks us to continue our review of Shadow-Lessons learnt in the Sub-Conscious/Dark Spaces within. Issues surrounding intimacy, sexuality, power and the like come to the fore for processing, reconciliation and/or karmic balancing.

Ceres – 28 Capricorn Retrograde – The Abundant Mother asks us to find a profound source of nurture (for self and others) within. The Crone appears as a powerful guide. Working upon one’s career or future ideas of what legacy you wish to behind may be a powerful way to focus your path at this time.

Salacia – 29 Pisces – We seek to complete a certain cycle of learning surrounding sexual matters, especially ones involving a certain level of scandal. Many will be opening themselves up to memories of past abuse/violation (in this life, or a prior one) to seek complete release in the transcendental, compassionate, unconditionally loving waters of Pisces. Rhodocrosite, Rhodonite and Rose Quartz may help for those who feel this placement intensely. Others, depending on their individual paths may not feel Salacia’s influence at all – it really depends on your journey, natal chart and sensitivity.

Amor – 1 Aries – We look to an ideal-type quality of Love, which goes beyond ego-based, body-based, mind-based or even heart-based ideas of connection. There is something immediate, embodied and undeniable about the kind of Love that we seek in the Self at this time. It’s not necessarily romantic, or sexual – but really goes past any Disney or Hall-mark defined standard of love.

South Node – 2 Aries – We draw upon lessons from the past which explore the dynamic between representing the Self with respect to others. Do we bodly assert the Self’s needs, do we temper it down to suit the group, or do we ignore it entirely?

I’m sure there are other influences which I can also write about in this space, but to be honest, that overview should give you an idea of the intensity of the current alignment. With so many planets about to enter a new sign: Jupiter, Mars, Saturn, Black Moon Lilith, The Nodes – it’s a time in which we feel such intense currents of energy surround us, whilst holding our breaths for the next wave of energy to begin.

The Grand Sextile Portal Opened at 15:48 UTC (7th August) and will last until 17:53 UTC (8th August). UTC = Universal Coordinated Time.

If you’d like to understand how this energies intersect with your chart, you can understand through an astrological transit reading. Those with placements/bodies between: 22 Pisces – 6 Aries; 22 Taurus – 6 Gemini; 22 Cancer – 6 Leo; 22 Virgo – 6 Libra; 22 Scorpio – 6 Sagittarius or 22 Capricorn – 6 Aquarius will feel these energies intensely. They cover 84 / 360 degrees of the zodiac (23.33%) so most people are bound to at least have one body intersecting with this alignment!

We’ve got about 6 hours and 23 minutes to go! ūüôā¬†Bear in mind there’s lots of other stuff also going on in the cosmos as well ! <3

GRAND SEXTILE 29-31 JULY 2014: INVITATION TO A GLOBAL PHOENIX MEDITATION

 

Blessings to all,

We have a powerful Grand Sextile (Hexagram, Star of David, Seal of Solomon, Anahata / Heart Chakra Symbol, Shadkona Yantra, etc.) in the skies between 7:18 am 30/7/14 – 3:22 am 31/7/14, GMT + 8. So that begins at 7:18 pm 29/7 in New York, 12:18 am 30/7 in London, 5:18 am in India and 9:18 am in Sydney – and lasts 20 hours from then.

Grand Sextiles are powerful portals of manifestation – they reflect the energy of ‘Ask, and Ye Shall Receive’. Intention and Clarity of what you desire to manifest is a key part of working with this energy.

In this video, I explain the Grand Sextile as an aspect and focus upon two of its components (Venus and the Asteroid Hopi). I talk about ways to clarify intent for manifestation and suggest exercises or things you can do to align yourself with Spirit as you work with this world-birthing energy.

Rise Like The Phoenix! A GLOBAL PRAYER FOR BIRTH-DEATH-REBIRTH: HOPI AND THE GRAND SEXTILE By Priestess Bairavee Balasubramaniam, PhD

Rise Like A Phoenix

Blessings to all,

Venus is birthing the new world as we speak. Both Mother and Midwife, She Bridges Form and Spirit. She is tapping into the powerful energy of a perfect Grand Sextile (Hexagram, Star of David) present in the heavens. The asteroid Hopi completes the Grand Sextile at 16 Taurus where no personal or transpersonal planets are present. This alignment is strongest in the sky between 7:18 am July 30th till July 31st 3:22 am.

Grand Sextiles are, astrologically speaking, portals of powerful manifestation that light up the Sky! Their symbol has been adopted in different faiths and speaks of a Seal of Protection. Made up of 2 Grand Trines and 6 Sextile aspects, the Grand Sextile simply tells us: WHAT YOU ASK, YOU SHALL RECEIVE.

Many of us claim to want peace and hope, yet subconsciously cling onto beliefs that perpetuate polarity, dis-empowerment and injustice. Some say they want to be happy, but are still deeply programmed and conditioned to sabotage their own joy at a powerful, subconscious level – or see fit to judge who deserves joy and who does not. In this way we create so many divisions within ourselves which are then reflected into the World.

The meaning of asteroid Hopi reflects this dual possibility of manifestation. On the one hand, the Hopi people are associated with peace-loving ways, they know how to nurture and be nurtured by the Earth – their name literally means ‘ The Peace-Loving People’ and they possess an intimate connection with the cycles of the Earth and the Heavens. On the other hand, in astrology, the asteroid Hopi is connected with ‘territorial disputes, prejudice, minority experiences and ambush’. Not a happy¬†connotation when you remember the history of Native Americans and their eventual dispossession. Hence¬†expressing¬†dual poles of what can be manifested at during this powerful Grand Sextile.

The other astral bodies included are Saturn, Venus, Chiron Retrograde, Pluto Retrograde and the Moon in Virgo. That involves karma, material values, healing, spirituality, crisis, the status quo/government, priest/essing, spiritual service – as both Grand Trines occur in Earth/Water signs.

So how do you know what you’re manifesting at this time is¬†actually in alignment with your Spirit?

If you choose to – When working¬†with this Grand Sextile, you’re going to really have to ‘feel it’. From your gut, from your Core, from that Sacred Spark of Spirit inside you. Push through old conditionings, patterns of karmic behavior, all those learned habits of denial and control ¬†— ¬†and find that place. Call it Core, Home, Center, Heart, Womb, Truth, Spirit – whatever works for you.

You’ve got it. Know this. And find that Place as you work with the energies of this powerful alignment.

The timing of these dates are significant for their own reasons as – in the Hindu tradition – the 30th is Masik Vinayaga Chathurthi (a prayer to Lord Vinayaga, the elephant-headed deity of wisdom and the removal of obstacles), whereas the 31st is Nag Panchami – the day in which (according to Hinduism), the race of serpents called Nagas were saved by the Goddess Manasa Devi (Snake Goddess). The Serpent is associated with birth-rebirth, the Underworld (Patala, Nagaloka – linked to Agartha), the preservation of the female principle and the honoring of the Earth’s Womb. ¬†Millions of people in India will be celebrating these festivals – and their energies will also be a part of the matrix of energy across this Planet. It is entirely your choice as to which day you do it on, or whether you want to take this into account at all as you work with the energies of the Grand Sextile.

Also – this Birthing of the New World is taking place close to a Grand Cardinal Cross (which I will talk about in a different post), and the Gaelic festivals of Lugnasadh / Lammas (Northern Hemisphere) and Imbolc (Southern Hemisphere). Both are key days or Sabbats in the Gaelic calendar and represent a liminal moment between different worlds, with the theme of Birth-Death-Rebirth woven into them. In line with the call to ‘Heal the Masculine’, it is worth noting that the Sun God begins to die at Lammas, his energy spent in the Harvest (and the Earth Mother who makes it possible). During Imbolc, he is already a young boy, reborn, his energies young but beginning to reach their peak once more. This corresponds to the dynamic of Masculine Energies between Scorpio (where Mars is) and Leo (where the Sun, Jupiter and Lilith are) ¬† In Goddessian terms, Imbolc is associated with the fires of Lady Brighid and and Lammas with Demeter. Both mark important seasonal transitions.

What can do you to work with this powerful transformative energy?

Prayer, meditation, singing, painting, poetry, introspective work, body-work, dancing, grounding, martial arts Рanything that makes you feel connected with Spirit will do. It is important to center and guide yourself through this time with a Heart/Spirit/Womb/Soul centered perspective, rather than the dictates of Ego, or Pure Mind. Remember that this is a time of bridging and birthing both worlds Рof allowing the Sun God to begin his death before a powerful, and beautiful Rebirth Рof speaking to the Mother as she presides over these subtle, yet powerful moments of transition.

 

I shall be conducting this meditation at 11:20 pm (30th July) Р12:20 am (July 31st).  This is in GMT + 8:00. I invite you all to join me in this powerful prayer of Birth-Rebirth Рin ourselves Рand across the Planet! Рat this time, or at any time within the range of the Grand Sextile that suits you.

For as you Rise, so too does the Collective!

May we Rise in Love, Once More!

Blessings,

Priestess Bairavee Balasubramaniam, PhD.
