Blessings everyone x To put it in a nutshell, this Full Moon is all about learning to let it go and let it be. Many of us will be facing situations, people and/or attachments from the past that are in need of releasing at this time.
We’re also going to be challenged in the ways we choose to express ourselves (sometimes by the very lack of). Many will be experiencing emotional ‘flooding’ as it were – do your best to stay afloat and allow your feelings to wash over and nurture you as they cleanse you.
There’s an intense emphasis upon Juno (Soulmate/Connection with the Feminine) – there will be a powerful opportunity to heal old karmic wounds, particularly to do with the Sacral Chakra and one’s relationship with sexuality/creativity – if you are prepared to receive it at this time. There’s a couple of yods in the skies, involving the North Node, Vesta, the Moon, Chiron, Pluto/Mars, Juno – it’s a very lit up sky.
Look back to the last week of April to see how current situations link up up to the Taurus New Moon of 2014 (which was also a Solar Eclipse) – The Grand Cardinal Cross was in full effect at that time. Those old enough to remember, look back to the 1st week of May 2000 to see how seeds set then are powerfully unfolding in the present.
No matter what your emotions are, remember that all that has passed and ended taught you a lesson – as as you lessen its hold upon you, you make the space – and the way – for new energies, lessons, people and experiences to come in.
Asteroids Kassandra and Deucalion are conjunct the Sun. Be sure to speak your truth, follow your intuition and do your best to stay afloat with the wave of energy and emotion that follows. Trans-Neptunian Object Ceto is also conjunct the Sun, indicating a focus upon our deepest fears within your subconscious – waiting to be addressed. Often, all we need to do is to look at what we fear to realize that there is no reason to fear it at all.
Healing or realignment work with the Sacral and the Throat Chakra will be beneficial at this time. Express your Creativity and Speak your Truth.
The Great Goddess Fire Trine – http://wp.me/p4OUNS-bb
The powerful Mars/Pluto-Chiron-Juno Yod – http://wp.me/p4OUNS-b2
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 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.
Blessings all. We still have pretty much the same aspects as we did yesterday, obviously now Post-Eclipse. The biggest change is the formation of a T-Square between the Moon in Taurus, Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio and Juno in Leo. This is an intense configuration that points to the new role of Juno, having just entered a new sign. This Asteroid Goddess is usually conceptualized as the soulmate and marriage partner, but I would reinterpret her as referring to the Flow of the Sacred Feminine itself for reasons I have previously discussed). Juno in Leo encourages this flow through Romance, Sacral Activity, Creativity, Engaging with Children and other manifestations of lovely Leonine energy. Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio is challenging us to look at the ways in which we have shared intimate energies with others, sexually, financially, and in any context where two entities merge with one another. We look to past relationships and soul contracts and untangle the dynamics of issues of power and control, particularly in romance, over creative work/expression or over children. The Taurus Moon, seeking security often through material attachments and possessions is squaring Juno as well.
The deep work of examining the Soul Contract (which ultimately leads one back to an understanding and honouring of both Feminine and Masculine and all other aspects of the Divine) is one that potentially destabilizes the material security, solidity and sensual pleasures that the Taurus Moon seeks. The Taurus Moon – Mercury Rx opposition emphases this tension, played through the dynamics of control, domination, possessiveness, and so on. Taurus relates to the flow of Abundance through one’s life and one’s perceived connection with the Source of that Abundance. Ideally, it makes it feel secure and safe in the knowledge that all will be provided for, in whatever form that is required.
So you’ve got all these elements in a powerful T-Square. Leo is asking for your authenticity, Scorpio and Taurus are both seeking security and power in different ways. Vulnerabilities are on the line and the presence of Mercury Retrograde signals deep karmic dynamics at play throughout.
So, what on earth do you do?
Try to look at the lessons of each of these signs:
Leo wants you to play, be yourself, be unafraid to express your inner child and to know there is a lion/ness within that can leap out to protect you if need be.
Scorpio wants to know the self but fears the deep subconscious. It engages in games of projection as a defense, or themes of submission and dominance to avoid ownership of experience. Know thy Self and realize that everyone, even in the ones who have hurt you, have played their role in getting you to look in the Spiritual Mirror and see the Beautiful Soul reflected therein for what it is.
Taurus wants to bathe in the waters of abundance and fears loss and disconnection. Focus upon that Unbreakable connection between you and Spirit. Know that detachment is not the lack of interest in the material, but the knowledge that you are firstly Spirit, explained through this powerful quote:
” Detachment is not that you should own nothing, but that nothing should own you.
~ Ali ibn abi Talib ”
The same applies for people and partnerships.
As you encounter individuals or remember experiences in which your deepest vulnerabilities were gored by the Bull’s tusks or Stung by the Scorpion’s Tail – remember the lessons of each sign.
And stay Balanced. You Co-Create Your Reality with Others. Accept that, and release what you need to.
And in time, you’ll see a whole new side of your emerge. Ready to dance, create and play – the Happy Divine Child watched over by the Lion/ness.
Please note that this T-Square will be felt as a Grand Fixed Cross by those with astrological placements at or near 0 Aquarius (+/- 7 degrees). This T-Square is in effect 8:14 am, Oct 9th – 10:08 am, Oct 10th 2014, GMT + 8). Shortly after this T-Square ends, a POWERFUL Yod which harnesses the power of the Eclipse, begins (more on that tomorrow).
