A NEW MOON begins our second week of February, occurring at 6:38am PST on Monday (2:38pm GMT). This lunation is in Aquarius, which means our new lunar cycle is about new ideas, innovations, and taking strides along our own unique path in life.

The Sabian symbol for the New Moon is an encouraging one:

“A large white dove bearing a message: The answer of spiritual agencies to thorough, sustained, and victorious individual efforts.”

Tom Lescher/Kaypacha ~ Astrology for the Soul January 27, 2016

Whew! Feelin’ this one, and I know many others are, too. I’m glad I took the time to watch this Pele Report, because it really puts events from mid-December through now and into mid-February 2016 into perspective.

If you feel the urge to purge, you are not alone. If you find yourself evaluating what works and what doesn’t and suddenly feel it impossible to ignore the suppressed, repressed, and unexpressed, you are definitely not alone. Shadow Time. I’ve also heard so much from friends and clients, as well as noticing big time in my own life, that if something no longer belongs in your life, it feels like a matter of life and death to move it on out.

Kaypacha jokes about how often he uses the word “intense” in the first few minutes of this video, but it’s really no joke. These are intense times. Intensely crushing or intensely liberating: it depends on how you manage the intensity and what decisions it forces you to make. Choose well, because our choices right now are actively creating the new paradigm.

MANY OF US grew up with the concept that self-sacrifice is a vital component of living a spiritual life. As such, we judge ourselves harshly if we want “too much” for ourselves, if we aren’t putting others first in all ways.

But there are other times when we can access the larger perspective of life, and we become aware that what is truly best for one is actually best for all. The choice we make not to rescue another person — even if that decision comes from a place of sheer exhaustion — may be exactly what they need to learn important lessons about being responsible and taking care of themselves.

Wake Up World ~ New Moon in Scorpio — The Resurrection of Desire

Wake Up World ~ New Moon in Scorpio — The Resurrection of Desire

New Moon in Scorpio - Resurrection of Desire 1

23rd October 2014

By Simon Vorster

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

After conquering the wasted lands, the quest of the warrior again commands that we march into a world unknown – the wilderness we call our home.

We are entering Hades’ lair. Don’t be afraid! The new lunar cycle in Scorpio brings with it a powerful cosmic flush in which the process of total inner transmutation is available for us. In order for us to do so we will need to confront the inner core vibration of who we are. We have to dig deep, to the soul level.

Welcome to dark inner landscape of your own soul.

Happy birthday Scorpio!

Understanding the Vibration of Scorpio & Pluto

The vibration of Scorpio is linked with evolution. In nature we observe it as the caterpillar’s metamorphosis into a butterfly – the original form transmuting into a totally different form. This is why Scorpio energy has been labeled as rebirth energy.

When we reach the vibration of Scorpio, we begin to recognize that there is more to the reality than what appears on the surface. Through the human condition, the vibration of Scorpio plays out the role of the deepest psychology of our consciousness. Through intense inquiry into what lies beneath the surface, Scorpio wants to know the bottom line. As we begin delving deeper into the nature of our psyche we become aware of our motivations, intentions obsessions and compulsions. You see, this is actually where our deepest unconscious securities lie; our fixations and attachments to things in our lives, even to life itself.

Scorpio has a dualistic nature of desire to it. On the one hand, through Scorpio we have the desire to evolve and change and on the other hand we have the desire to feel empowered, which comes through experience and knowing, from past experience. However the very thing that empowers us will eventually cause limitations, which in itself is disempowering. This is where the desire to change is born – to evolve past limitations. Old and outdated patterns of behavior cause limitations. These limitations then come up for renewal. An action of involution takes place; letting go as it were. This allows space to be created and for new psychological patterns to be born.

So let´s take a look at the cosmos…

Saturn in Scorpio

The Shadow Self.

This will be the last time for at least another 29 years that the sun will travel through the constellation Scorpio while Saturn is also in Scorpio. This is a very special cycle in terms of our evolution because an entire chapter is coming to a close. With this comes the final awareness of the lessons that are related to the Saturn in Scorpio transit.

For much of the last two years we have been dealing with intense dark truths about the nature of humanity. We have become completely aware of the nonsense that today’s authorities and institutions project into our perception about what is real and what is not – even to the point now where we look at the recent Ebola outbreak as a hoax.

Saturn in Scorpio has been showing us exactly what is happening in the transit of Pluto through Capricorn. It has been giving us a preview, and we certainly became aware of our own individual and collective karma. With this mutual reception we have been greatly aided in ripping down all the outdated definitions and cleaning our perception of our outer world. Along with this came the undoing of the authoritative power we give to the hierarchic structures. Essentially the veil of illusion that governments, institutions, corporations and corporate media has hidden behind has now been removed and the truth is there in plain sight, allowing us to flush out these deep dark distortions that existed within us.

We were also, during this time, becoming aware of our external security patterns and how we placed them in the hands of these authorities. We learnt the biggest spiritual lesson during this transit; total security can only be found from within. What has emerged during this time for humanity is that the year of 2014 has been one in which we have become awake to our own freedom. Our spiritual freedom. We have been learning that we are sovereign spiritual beings of this earth. We have begun recognizing our own authority.

It is time now to establish that personal, inner authority in the world. This is the key to actualizing our desires and becoming awake to them. With this knowledge we are able to make choices to move away from, and stop supporting, these outdated structures one step at a time. This will inevitably lead to their fall.

The Oracle Report ~ June 5, 2014

Laura Walker’s Oracle Report for today goes right along with the recent themes I’ve noted. I especially like her analogy of the cat arguing with a mouse — when, clearly, the cat could just overpower the mouse. That is so right on for situations I’ve observed in the microcosm. As within, so without. Methinks that certain mice have taunted the cat for far too long, ala Tom & Jerry — or, perhaps the cat has toyed with the mouse, while arguing with it instead of eating it. As Laura notes, the mouse is not being devoured by the cat, which seems to indicate some kind of opportunity for balance.

First Quarter Moon Phase: take action, break away, step out

Moon in Virgo

Ruling Mahavidya: Bagalamukhi (The Paralyzer, The Storm-Calmer)

Skill: look at the details but also the bigger picture of things

Negative Imprint: settling for less, taking scraps; aggression, arguments

Positive Imprint: independence, creativity, speaking one’s mind peacefully

The First Quarter Moon phase begins today, bringing the energy to link things together with the intricacy of a fine lace handkerchief. We see how things from our past, present, and future are threaded together. Details are important today, and taking care of small details is encouraged, but seeing the big picture of all the details is more important. We want to make sure we are looking at the totality of things, not just one aspect.

The Sun is now in the middle of Gemini. Gemini energy always involves others in various ways; it is the sign of The Twins. The concept of “the other” is fused with Gemini. It is concerned with “me vs others” and can have difficulty standing on its own. You could also say it is about our inner world and what we show the outer world. Today’s energy highlights the Gemini theme of others through strong support of activities, projects, and ideas undertaken with others.

Further, the notion of “self and others” comes into play today in other ways. In keeping with this month’s theme of “aroused strikers around a factory,” we are inclined to stand up and lay out our position in support of something important. To minimize resistance, make sure you are coming from the highest level of intention and do not become aggressive or pushy. Stand in your center and radiate your power. Communicate your emotions, but don’t get carried away or overdramatic. Be clear and don’t waver. And if you don’t get the support or outcome that you want, don’t despair. Enormous inner strength will be built and clarity about what is not in line with your highest, best, happiest life will be revealed. Wisdom is gained.

The “intricate lacework” today includes potential for being misunderstood or disadvantaged. This manifests if you are focusing too much of your energy on others at the expense of taking care of yourself. What need is this satisfying in you? Do you need to become more independent, self-contained, or creative? Remember that inner strength is the aim this month. Don’t lose sight of alternatives or other possibilities.

Finally, a word about the impending Mercury retrograde. Mercury will station retrograde on Saturday, but today it has moved to the degree in the sky where it will appear to stop and move backwards. Simply stated, the retrograde energy is foreshadowed today. Here’s the thing: the degree of Mercury’s retrograde is “a cat arguing with a mouse.” Take a breath and let’s begin to reframe this. Yes, this means the Mercury retrograde will be intense. Things will come to somewhat of a standstill and communications will have conflicts. People will argue about things. But the fact that the cat is arguing with the mouse, when it could easily overpower and devour it, tells us that some sort of balance will come to situations – possibly for the first time. Old values, ideas, and systems are reconsidered. You could say the underdog (or “undermouse”) takes a stand and gains power. What was once overpowering is now open for discourse. While Mercury is retrograde, the balance of power is transformed in all things. Let’s work the Mercury retrograde from this angle, starting today.

Since the day is like intricate lacework, I could go on and on about the energetic signatures, but this is the big picture. Dive in to look at details, but come back to see things as a whole. Keep building your inner strength.

(P.S. Good job making it through double Crescent energy, wise owls! – For more information about the double Crescent energy, refer to the audio recording for this month, the Gemini Moon, here at the top of the Homepage at OracleReport.com)

Tom Lescher ~ Astrology Forecast April 30-May 6, 2014

This Pele Report explains some of what I’ve been hearing from friends and clients about the recent energy of “hurry up and wait.” If you’re raring to go but inexplicably spinning your wheels, it really could be the larger energies — not simply your own internal resistance. I suggest using the time delay to increase inner clarity while balancing the highest good of all involved.

Kaypacha advises to “Speak your truth and assert yourself, but in a loving way. … Talk about your feelings” [as opposed to a rigid judgment structure].

This time period emphasizes “accepting other people’s values. This is the Eighth House. I can be different than you. You can need, or want or value different things than me, and it doesn’t need to be the end. … We can respect each other as different, diverse human beings. I don’t need you to become like me, and I’m not going to become like you.” We can still have a relationship, though.

Boy, am I finding this last one play out in my personal life as I try to accept that the enormous and vocal majority of locals I encounter — even when shown the corporate tentacles and manipulative, oppressive strings attached to various grants and initiatives — become even more determined to turn a blind eye (clamped shut and triple blindfolded if need be) and just take the money, regardless of eventual consequences. I have yet to find anyone who cares enough to scratch below the next meal, next grant or next year … and I find myself in an area with enormous potential to avoid so many of the pitfalls I’ve seen elsewhere — not just accidentally hitting a pothole, but actively inviting in and celebrating eventual sinkholes. I can help people strategize ways to avoid such things, but not when everyone asserts that they believe potholes and their eventual sinkholes are wonderful things.

So yes, Kaypacha, I’ve been feeling the “accepting others’ values” aspect in a very poignant way.

Last night, David and I attended a poetry reading by a childhood friend of his, Julia Kasdorf, and she read from her latest “documentary poetry” collection (not yet released), which focuses on complex issues of fracking in Pennsylvania. She has interviewed and eavesdropped on hundreds of people and interweaves the communities’ practical support for fracking with images of burning wells, unrelenting noise, landscape devastation, and economic exploitation. That same sense of extreme poverty celebrating whatever helps put food on the table now pervades her delicate and bittersweet observations about long term consequences and the history of Penn’s Woods. Having grown up in PA, the poems hit home even more personally than the Beehive Design Collective‘s visual work. Global corporatism and control are marching everywhere — in Mesoamerica, in Goshen, in Pennsylvania — and despite the few resisters, many, many, many people continue to dance and beat the drums of “progress.”

Thank you, Kaypacha, for putting things into their larger astrological context. For some of you, it may be time to surrender and release. For me, it’s time to garden and break out Joanna Macy’s “Active Hope” again, too. Sober Beltane Blessings, as we find ways to celebrate what we can, even as others celebrate the very things that break our hearts ….

After the cloudburst and torrential rain,
The clouds disperse and the Sun shines again,
The rivers rise up and flow to the sea,
The more I let go, the more I am free.
Open up and let the sun shine in after the big cloudburst of thes last few weeks….. We can figure that May will be somewhat less frustrating but now it can be like cleaning up after a wild party the night before….. Mercury opp Saturn this Friday is pretty sober so keep the chin up… it will be worth it! Artwork from the last Pele Report by Fulya Kurter and music this week by: https:soundcloud.com\lucere

Jill Mattson ~ Three Clues That We Are Influenced — From the Stars!

Here’s an article that shares some scientific confirmation of energy from the stars influencing life on Earth. Anyone who’s ever wondered if astrology is nonsense, or who can’t understand why we might feel impacts from Mars, might want to read this article. Those who do feel astrological tugs might enjoy learning why. Thanks, G!

HarmonyInTheSpheres

The planets in motion create waves, and they influence us! This is indisputable science! The waves are below our hearing range, but are recorded from satellites. These waves correspond to the waves of our body, mind and emotions, and transfer energies through octave resonance – pushing and pulling us. Many would call this vibratory influence astrology!

Numerous scientists have confirmed the presence of this energy that comes to Earth from the stars. Sharry Edwards uses information taped (but below our hearing range) from satellites to describe subtle energy influences that you receive everyday!

In the 1600′s scientist Johannes Kepler sought evidence for harmony in the universe, as described by Pythagoras and others. Kepler found the movement of planets created a scale that was linked to simple, whole numeric ratios. In his book, Hermonices Mundi, the Five Books on Musical Harmony, Kepler calculated the angles of the planets (as measured from the sun) from their extreme positions in elliptical orbits during a twenty-four hour period. A system of simple intervals emerged, sixteen in all, (two exceptions) that are musical consonances or intervals with whole number ratios. He offers this as proof of harmonic laws in the cosmos.

If we take Kepler’s diatonic musical scale down enough octaves, these waves correspond to the brain wave patterns of alpha, beta, theta, and delta. Think about that. The movements of the planets create frequencies and our brain waves emulate that wave pattern. Isn’t that astounding?

Four hundred years later a pair of Americans detected a form of music from the heavens. “In 1993 Hulse and Taylor landed the Nobel Prize for discovering binary pulses – stars which send out electromagnetic waves in pulses. The most sensitive equipment located in one of the world’s highest places, high on a mountain top in Arecibo, Puerto Rico picks up evidence of their existence through radio waves”.

The Earth also emits low levels of electromagnetic energy from the spinning core of molten iron way below the surface. Energies from the sun distort the earth’s field with high-energy solar winds. The interaction of the earth’s magnetic field (from the molten iron) and the solar winds (from the sun) combines into electromagnetic energy, which is comprised of low frequencies. These frequencies also mingle with our own energies of body, mind and soul.

Dr. Becker, physician author and researcher, describes cosmic magnetic influences on life. “The strength of the Earth’s magnetic field averages about half a gauss and worse yet, its daily charge is less than 0.1 gauss. Compared to a magnet that holds a refrigerator door closed, this is peanuts, indeed. There is simply no way that such a small charge in the field could influence even a compass needle. However Professor Brown’s experiments in the Woods Hole Marine Biological Laboratory indicate clearly that living organisms have the ability to somehow sense these minute daily cycles in the earth’s magnetic field and to use them to time their biological cycles”.

Dr. Becker continues, “Twenty years later we know that living things have the capacity of detecting and obtaining information from such low-strength fields as the steady geomagnetic field and its cyclic fluctuations”. Dr. Becker believes that this is how animals differentiate between north and south for migrations and other purposes.

It has been proved that the subtle energy systems in our body detect and obtain information from geomagnetic fields. Similarly, astrologers profess that our subtle energy systems are influenced by electromagnetic energy that originates in space.
