Electra Jung: New Moon in Sagittarius

Today we have a guest blog post from my friend, the lovely Electra Jung. Even though we’re a couple days past the New Moon, the energies linger, and we’ve got all sorts of evolutionary steps in progress. I’ll let Electra contextualize things from an astrological perspective:

Electra Jung: New Moon in Sagittarius

A New Moon in Sagittarius is a time of optimism, adventure and the growing belief that everything is happening for a higher purpose.

This Sagittarian Moon indicates new beginnings of self-discovery with an emphasis on cultivating mental and spiritual growth.

As we get to know ourselves as souls, we begin to let go of the self-consciousness of the ego. This Sagittarian journey begins when the wandering “gypsy” becomes the “student “who then becomes the “teacher” leading the direction towards becoming the “spiritual master”.

It’s time to regain your inner faith and confidence as your home life and close relationships demand attention. Relationships right now are the backdrop of our evolutionary changes. There is an intensification in relationships which is directing people to do and create the changes they need to. This lunation provides the dynamic understanding of us through direct experience with life, our motivations, cultural interests and social and environmental connections.

Hibernation leads to self- reflection and reclusive tendencies…yet getting out, traveling, participation with social activists, and general learning and developing an identity through personal experience. This purpose is to make us face ourselves and evolve into higher levels of consciousness. Life continually evolves. We’re always moving into new experiences, which then lead to new possibilities.

The idea here is to bring expansion into every area of life…most critically into your personal sense of self-awareness…who you are, what you know and the knowledge you have gained through a lifetime of experience you now can share with others. Look closely at what you have chosen for yourself. Every experience leads to greater understanding, greater love and a greater fulfillment of destiny at hand.

“Choice is destiny’s soul mate.”
– Sarah Ban Breathnach

Observe where you are and what it took to get here. It’s time to lay the groundwork for the changes that create a turning point. Explore and discover a new belief system, a revised philosophy and world view as the way we have given meaning and purpose to our life no longer works.

Many of you been experiencing life-changing events and radical change in how you live your daily life. The coming weeks provide opportunities to create personal growth rather than disruptive change. This is a time for exploring and discovering and learning something new.

Be prepared for continuing earth-changes as we all have been informed, we have all read about the “end-times” and other apocalyptic events to come. In fact these changes have been occurring for years with increasing intensity. You already are Aware of the coming transition of your energetic frequency…as the earth shifts and transforms we know the same is occurring within our bodies…allow your mind, your heart and your integrity of truth and right-action be your guide.

Solar flares are increasing in intensity, tectonic plates are shifting, earthquakes ( are larger are more powerful across the planet setting off volcanoes waiting to blow, and we live in our own consumer waste through addiction to fossil fuels and chemical conditions.

The true lesson is spiritual awakening and awareness that through life’s struggles you can overcome and will awaken at some point regardless of your circumstances. This Sagittarius New Moon is “the awakening” of our minds and consciousness to see our current reality and continue its “dissolution” as new ways of Being are set in motion.

Mercury Retrograde in Sagittarius 2012 –Electra Jung

Today we have a guest blog post from my friend, the lovely Electra Jung.

Mercury Retrograde in Sagittarius 2012
November 6, 2012 Election Day

Gypsies Tramps and Thieves

Preach a little gospel
Sell a couple bottles of doctor good

Have you been talking, buying, and selling a bill of goods? Re-member your words this retrograde in “talking too much” Sagittarius, for they are destined to come back and haunt you. In fact it may already be too late as there has been a lot of talk and too little action of late… actually no action. The meaning lies within the “no-action” as the atmosphere of emotion becomes dark and brooding when Mercury retrogrades back into Scorpio on the 15th turning direct at 18 Scorpio on the 25th. Resentments are lurking in the shadows and this is the time to clear the air…the Spiritual Air.

Using frankincense, myrrh, rosemary and sage…keep your mental and emotional environment free from your own up and down thinking. Clear the air with forgiveness and practical action. This also means keep a low profile and keep your expenses down in order to find some equilibrium during these retrograde days!

Promises, games and repeat situations can wear you down, so slow down. These are very busy days filled with endless tasks which need prioritizing. How easy it is to get taken advantage of. You know the story: so make a conscious decision not “to play” anymore… Back down, re-evaluate your way of responding, and choose your words carefully this retrograde. Now is the time to review your choices and choose the decisions you make.

“I was part of that strange race of people aptly described as spending their lives doing things they detest to make money they don’t want to buy things they don’t need to impress people they dislike.” — Emile Henry Gauvreau

Time to keep your eyes open and keep your wits about you…this is no time for letting your guard down. You may feel that your authority is being challenged or that you want to challenge the authority of someone else simply because things are not going your way… in the usual way that is because these are unusual times.

Although planets are weakened when in apparent retrograde motion and the mental, communication planets Mercury and Jupiter are both retrograde. This transit is further complicated by the exchange of signs or mutual reception between these two… when two planets are in each other’s signs of rulership. Jupiter rules this retrograde Mercury in Sagittarius and travels through Gemini, the sign ruled by Mercury. Both Jupiter and Mercury are weakened by this placement and support a more scattered, mis-informed and mis-understanding of thoughts, ideas and agreements. Caution is needed when entering contracts, take the time for thorough research.

This retrograde Fire energy is rising now with nowhere to go except backwards. As the Inner Journey tells us:

If you are not learning and moving forward, you are unconsciously entrenching older patterns more deeply. You are actually going backwards. So take a few minutes each week to reflect on what matters most in your life.

A positive financial and debt re-view and resolution time, indeed! Take action carefully; re-consider your options…in fact, opt out if you don’t want to find yourself on the defensive. The continuing areas of un-resolved financial issues, shared resources in utility bills, appliance repairs, vehicle insurance, property taxes, appliance breakdowns and where did that number go?

Everything seems to happen all at once and even your friends are difficult to rely upon… so rely on yourself and get done what you can. When a planet goes retrograde it retraces its steps and provides the opportunity to reconsider your options and get things right the best you can. There is no real point in resurrecting the past when we have retrograde Mercury providing the best replay of past drama… as mentioned earlier, the past comes back to haunt you.

Take a deep breath when no one answers the phone, comes up with their share of the bill or you get short-changed by those who feel “entitled”…short changed is better than getting the shaft! Go ahead with plans to re-assess your property, re-finance your house and re-apply for that loan, that credit or that job.

Leave your ego aside as it usually gets in the way and definitely will get in the way over the next 3 weeks. Remember the Art of the Deal or the Lost Art of the Hook? The basic meaning of a retrograde Mercury in its lowest expression is the thief… and more specifically “the pickpocket”

“Pickpocketing is a subtle theft,” says Jay Albenese, a criminologist at Virginia Commonwealth University. “It requires a certain amount of skill, finesse, cleverness, and planning… and the patience to do all that isn’t there” among American young people. This is “a reflection of what’s going on in the wider culture.”

Even the most loyal of citizens realize today that our greatest play on words comes from the political promises and campaign stories of a better, healthier economy …Being outwitted by a pickpocket in a crowded subway car is one thing; being relieved of your savings by an anonymous hacker/banker is quite another.

The higher expression of retrograde Mercury is the Magician… being and able to find Peace and Magic in the midst of change and crises. Knowledge and experience will see you through. Trust yourself as you learn to live in harmony

“Peace comes not from the absence of conflict, but from the ability to cope with it.”– Unknown Source

The Astrology of October 2012–Carl Boudreau

From Carl Boudreau’s YouTube description for the October forecast (shared below):

“Exponential change. October blasts the status quo to smithereens. Say your final good-bye’s to stalemate and indecision. People build on commitments made in September and branch out in a thousand new directions, based on those decisions. Inner changes burgeon into burgeoning outer changes.

“Pluto and the North Node both hammer the 8th house. The military, high finance, political and economic power, insurance and pension issues, reproductive sexuality, human intimacy, personal boundary issues – a lengthy laundry list of vital issues come up for final negotiation on the macro and micro levels. The next year or two brings high stakes, high tension, hard fought efforts to achieve a new consensus on a host of issues of vital importance to everyone.

“Saturn puts a damper on extremists and fringe types. A degree of sanity and probity will be restored to public discourse.

“A more polished, written version of this analysis, with some illustrations, will be available on my blog on or about October 1.”

{Laura here with a commentary]:

Those of you longing for a different timeline, may appreciate these comments from around 7:19:

“The whole chart seems like a portal into an entirely different timeline. All of the tipping points we’ve been longing for … they’re going to hit us in spades in October. A blizzard of decision points. … A great global leap forward.”

My David keeps expressing it like this: “Once you crack that door open, you can’t ever close it again.”

And as I have said before: “Love and Light are invasive forces.” When you open a door, that sliver of light doesn’t get swallowed by the room’s darkness; it inserts itself into the room and illuminates the surroundings. Once you clearly see those surroundings, attempting to close the door won’t change your awareness. Unconditional Love for Self and others works similarly: once you recognize that you, too, deserve love and respect, toxic, binding relationships suddenly morph.

I keep observing key decision points during sessions, too. So many people around the world right now are feeling a sudden dawn of clarity that makes long periods of indecisiveness end fast. No more wishy-washy back and forths: decisive, irreversible action steps have already begun and will really ramp up in October. Prepare for “a psycho-spiritual supernova event. Dramatic and sweeping outer changes coalesce with dramatic inner changes.”

Spontaneous, uncontrollable evolution will contend with extreme scrutiny of those issues and structures that have tried so hard to hold us back. Carl predicts a long, protracted dismantling of the old so that we fully understand how we got to this point. Thorough exploration may challenge people’s patience; however, it ensures lasting, dramatic change and a firm foundation for the new. Collective decisions and actions come into greater focus — with individuals joining together in cooperative, holistic ways to create solutions that reflect the Highest Good of All.

Here’s Carl:

Barbara Hand Clow ~ Choosing Your Intentions: Second Uranus/Pluto Square: September 19, 2012

Thanks, G! In the words of Bill and Ted: “Most excellent!” Even though this report covers September 19, 2012, the energies of Uranus and Pluto squaring each other are already building. I know it’s not just me, because clients and friends share the same experience, but have you noticed how easily you can “opt out” of what the media, scientists, and even New Age alarmists present as “fact”? “That has nothing to do with me” becomes an increasingly louder (and welcome) refrain as the energies intensify.

Timelines feel so easy to navigate these days that we would do well to substitute any addictions to consumerism by simply shopping for realities. Try one on for size. Does it fit? Does it feel good? If not, put it back on the rack and choose another one. You don’t even need to move much, as it feels like reality options just fly by like revolving dry cleaner hangers or a Jetson’s closet. You don’t even need to choose by continuity with the past. Let your hopes and dreams dress your life. It’s not only possible; it’s happening. So choose wisely.

Barbara Hand Clow ~ Choosing Your Intentions: Second Uranus/Pluto Square: September 19, 2012

In my analysis of the first Uranus/Pluto square on June 24, 2012, I suggested we are awakening the human heart. Now in September, the field of the Uranus-Pluto squares is locked firmly in our lives like a vise-grip; anybody noticing? This field is intensely creative, which causes our thoughts to manifest all around us, so we are challenged to clearly and wisely intend what we want to create. Whenever we navigate reality by means of clear intentions, we utilize quantum forces—the highly accelerated energy field that creates events based on what’s in our minds. Because more and more people have learned how to create this way, miracles are happening.

I’ve already described the historical and economic trends playing out during the seven squares in my analysis of the first square. You can refresh your mind on these general trends and long cycles by reading “Welcome to the Truth” listed in News on my website. In my analysis of this second square, I will examine the quality of Earth’s creative (quantum) fields at this time.

Since the first square in late June, human conduct has been exquisitely mirroring the collective mind back to us. The human populace continues to shop like addicts, eat like pigs, and consume natural resources, acting like there is no tomorrow. The planet bakes in extreme heat with crops failing, and maniacs on psychotropic drugs murder people who go to theatres at midnight to watch Batman. However, in the middle of this accelerating collective insanity, many of us are discovering innovative new ways to create reality. You may feel like a fairy godmother waving your magic wand and creating stardust when you opt out of consensus reality and fly about in the exquisitely malleable quantum fields.

There is little direction in the 3D physical zone because the solid world is collapsing while conscious individuals build a new world by utilizing the quantum fields—human ascension into the fourth dimension. You are an incarnated being and will have a solid body as long as you are alive, and now you are remembering how to resonate with nature.

Resist allowing your mind to fog over when you hear the word “quantum!” Quantum physicists have discovered something astonishing that is also very simple: All realities are directed and transformed by the observer—you! This summer, many of you may have been rather shocked to see things “just happen” around you that you were merely considering in your minds. For example, when you felt blocked and confused (often!), simply by moving your attention to something positive (anything really!) doorways opened.

This reminds me of being a child on a sled or toboggan when it tipped over its fulcrum point and raced wildly down the hill on a path through packed snow. Maybe you slipped out of consensus reality and found yourself floating in a shimmering wonderland of particles taking magical forms? Within this lacy light, a less dense world is forming, a world with plenty of time and space.

As I’ve already noted, astrology is rarely as clear as it is right now. The struggle over human resources is intense (Pluto in Capricorn), while the human creative potential to move beyond limitation (Uranus in Aries) is unstoppable. Day-by-day, week-by-week, the Moon and fast-moving planets form sextiles, squares, trines, quincunxes, and oppositions to the Uranus/Pluto square, and these aspects entice us to release the square’s potential through our actions. There is little reason to talk about events on the world stage because what each one of us is doing, feeling, and knowing is what matters. I will read the chart for the second Uranus-Pluto Square seeking ways we can utilize clear human intentions to enhance the evolution of our species. In light of the completion of the Ninth Wave of the Mayan Calendar in 2011, I think we’ve come to a stillpoint—a multidimensional free zone that is reformulating basic biology.

I’ve cast the chart for the second Uranus/Pluto square for Washington, DC, on September 19, 2012, 3:30 AM, since the USA continues to play the role of global empire. This chart is very subtle and has wonderful creative potential that enhances the powers that were released during the first square on June 24. True humility is the first step to enlightenment, and I’m noticing that many extremely powerful individuals realize that they don’t understand what is happening right now. The second Uranus-square-Pluto chart emphasizes that each thing we create alters the world in significant ways. Possibly leaders are drawing back to be careful and respectful?

During the June 24 Uranus/Pluto square, Sun in Cancer opposed Pluto, which placed Uranus in Aries on the top of a T-square; this unleashed strong desires to navigate reality in new ways. During the second Uranus/Pluto square, Mercury in 4 Libra opposes Uranus in 7 Aries, which places Pluto on the top of a T-square. In this case, Mercury stimulates transformative Uranus to create constant change while activating Pluto to push for structural improvements. Most people realize deep change is accelerating, and this insight deepens when Mercury forms its exact opposition to Uranus and an exact square to Pluto on September 20.

In the reading for the first square, I suggested that Uranus sitting at the top of a T-square to Sun-opposite-Pluto would cause a series of shocks. They happened in financial markets, crop failures and terrible fires, and the hideous mass killings in Colorado and Syria. With Pluto at the top of the T-square to Uranus opposite Mercury, we are pushed to make fundamental changes. I noted that the first Uranus/Pluto square could create a high likelihood of a serious religious crisis. On the very day of the first square, Monsignor Lynn of Philadelphia became the first prominent Catholic official to be convicted in American courts by ignoring blatant sexual abuse in his diocese. Before this conviction, these crimes were tried only in Church courts. Next time, the influence of the T-square to Pluto may trace these abuses right into the Vatican.

The Sun in 27 Virgo trines the lunar South Node, which encourages us to recover potent ancient-healing techniques. I got an early insight into how this could happen when I experienced a quantum-level healing during a recent craniosacral session. I have been waiting for the return of these “miracles” ever since I wrote about Chiron way back in the 1980s. Now I’m seeing the recovery of advanced healing knowledge that may have existed before the cataclysms 12,000 years ago, and I hope this recovery will intensify during the second Uranus/Pluto square. The 27 Virgo Sun’s trine to the South Node in 28 Taurus might release healing powers in the hands and hearts of the dedicated healers who have been faithfully mastering these powers for many years. If it were just the Sun’s trine the South Node, I wouldn’t see this possibility, but

Chiron in 6 Pisces sextiles Pluto—Chiron funnels the lost healing codes to Pluto.
During this square, Venus in 14 Leo is right on the ascendent for Washington, DC, so the desire for individual rights activates the people in the US, and will spread around the world. Venus closely sextiles Jupiter in 16 Gemini, which causes people to remember that their rights are the source of their wellbeing (Jupiter). Jupiter in Gemini globally disseminates love of intelligence and free movement. Also, Jupiter closely quincunxes Mars in 17 Scorpio, inciting Mars to be ruthless in his pursuit of power and truth. Mars quincunx Jupiter in Gemini could inspire the revelation of dark secrets to shine light into our troubled world, an aspect that favors more revelations from WikiLeaks. Prominent Venus in 14 Leo aspects the midpoint between the Moon in 10 Scorpio conjuncting Mars in 17 Scorpio, causing the public to feel the difference between truth and falsehood.

Saturn in 28 Libra is exactly quincunx the lunar South Node in 28 Taurus, another major push for the activation of pre-cataclysmic brain maps. Saturn is completing his journey through Libra where he has been balancing opposing forces since November 2009. When Saturn moves into Scorpio in early October, he becomes the truth seeker, the great prober into the secret dark places that have been festering since 1982. Saturn will be in Scorpio until mid-September 2015; thus Scorpio’s themes—death, transformation, and truth—will be the themes during the Uranus/Pluto squares. Saturn trine Neptune in 1 Pisces brings us spiritual beauty, which can ease the stress of facing unpleasant information amidst continual structural evolution.

If you’ve found life murky and overwhelming this summer, you aren’t alone. So far, the trick to navigating this strange period is to scan each moment and each event for potentially positive things and to align your self with this flow. The hideous scenes on the television are not your world, but you get sucked into these negative fields if you allow them into your mind. How much more encouragement do you need for being very careful about what you expose yourself to when mad shooters go to theatres to heighten the drama on the screen? When you turn away from all the noise and confusion, a quiet and gentle world unfolds in which you can play. In some factions of the New Age, the drums beat for
the return of Planet X or Nibiru, yet more people are opting out of such repetitive end-of-the-world scenarios, reflecting on our emergence into the True Age. Once 2012 ends—the planned date for fomenting global catastrophobia—many will realize we are citizens of the galaxy and the whole universe. During the second Uranus/Pluto square, Pluto’s placement at the top of a T-square to Mercury opposite Uranus indicates huge changes in our world. Perhaps these will be inspired by religious beliefs? I do often wonder about the role religion will play in the USA elections this fall, since Mitt Romney is a Mormon, the first large American religion that is now beginning to grow around the world. Saturn in Scorpio during 2012-15 will dredge up many dark secrets, yet there is nothing to fear as this second Uranus/Pluto square awakens ancient creativity. Just remember to be grounded in your dream of a beautiful world that we are intentionally creating together during this long-awaited planetary awakening.

Some readers have requested a listing of the rest of the Uranus/Pluto squares. The third one will occur May 20, 2013; the fourth one November 1, 2013; the heliocentric square is November 23, 2013 (which I will also read); the fifth one is April 21, 2014; the sixth one is December 15, 2014; and the seventh is March 16, 2015.

Carl Boudreau ~ The Astrology Of September 2012 –Video

Thanks, Gillian!

I haven’t watched this yet, but Carl’s forecasts are always engaging and insightful, so I thought I’d share right away.

Summary from Carl: “September looks like the beginning of the end of stalemate, indecision and partisan standoffs. People will see more clearly than before the wisdom or the error of their ways. The consequences of preferences, words and deeds will become readily apparent and help many make important choices. Personal alliances as well as large-scale political and economic alliances will shift accordingly. Although it probably won’t end the hard-edged partisan politics itself.

“… A more polished, written version of this analysis will be available on my [Carl’s] blog on or about the 1st of September.

Uranus Square Pluto: Kick Out the Jams!

Yay!!! I was hoping my friend Timothy Glenn would do a write-up about Uranus Square Pluto. This is just his sort of thing, and describing such interactions draws upon his natural dramatic flare. No one does a Uranus-Pluto encounter quite like Tim. I hope you enjoy his insights as much as I always do:

Uranus Square Pluto:
Kick Out the Jams!

As Uranus and Pluto move into the first of their exact squares, an intense wave of transformational energy is being unleashed throughout the world. The planets of revolution and evolution are combining forces to trigger a quantum leap for all the Souls who are willing to move to the next level of cosmic experience. Things will not remain the same. June 24, 2012 marks the first exact square, and these two will continue their dance of seven exact squares for more than two and a half years, with the grand finale coming on March 16, 2015.

To help us appreciate the monumental significance of this astrological event, we can revisit the mid 60’s, when Uranus and Pluto were conjunct for the first time since we became consciously aware of Pluto’s existence.

“This is the Dawning…”

Uranus conjunct Pluto in Virgo served as the primary astrological influence that created what we know as the The Sixties. We can picture Pluto as the Lord of the Underworld, deep in his subterranean lair. Suddenly there resounds a knock on the door. Who would be crazy enough to come down here and pound on Pluto’s door? Pluto swings the door open, only to be greeted by the off-the-wall ruler of Aquarius, singing “This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius.” He announces his plan to inspire a group called The Fifth Dimension to popularize this song. Uranus gleams at Pluto and says, “Hey! You wanna come out and change the world?”

This partnership resulted in a revolution of evolution. It manifested in a variety of social phenomena: civil rights, women’s rights, environmental conscientiousness, the peace movement, and an overall explosion in consciousness (with and without chemical assistance). Deep awareness and high-flying idealism burgeoned forth.

A User-Friendly Square

The Square takes an unnecessarily bad rap in astrology. Among other things, the square sounds a call to action. Take the appropriate action, and the square will be your friend. But yes, refuse to take that action, and the square will probably smack you up alongside your head. But essential action can help us tap into the power of the square, and the results can be spectacular.

Squares generally put to the test whatever was birthed at the conjunction, and call upon those ideals to step forth into full manifestation. Uranus square Pluto is asking us if we really meant all that idealism of the 60’s. If we did, we are now being informed that it’s time to bring the Spirit of the Sixties forth in every facet of our lives. But since Pluto is in Capricorn, we will see a more mature expression of those ideals.

This transformation cannot be superficial. Pluto doesn’t do shallow. Uranus doesn’t piddle around. The clarion call is ringing throughout the Earth, and our most positive outcome will emerge through taking suitable action. Deep unconscious forces are being unleashed within us and without us. At first, we may not like what we see as our eyes open wider, but as W.C. Fields said, “There comes a time in every man’s life when he must take the bull by the tail and face the situation.”

The Real Illusion

With Pluto in Capricorn, the old Plutocracy will most likely hold onto its outmoded ways until its knuckles turn white, grow brittle and finally break. The smoke and mirrors illusion called the Economy has not been granted an exemption to the transmutative process. The cabal that has manipulated humanity for millenia has been showing signs of desperation, because the video screen of their life is displaying two four-letter words: Game Over. But people within the cabal are awakening as well, and the probability lines are fanning out before our eyes.

The system’s rigidity is being challenged by Uranus in Aries. Individuals and small groups are rising in a grassroots movement that functions beyond the system’s paradigm. In the New Earth, no one will be in charge. The principles of roving leadership and spontaneous evolution will outstrip the machinations of the Matrix. As a bonus, Uranus will summon technologies that have been suppressed. Truly, Game Over.

However, realism includes possibilities for drastic upheaval and even violence. Neither is necessary, but could set the stage for the final act of the human addiction to drama. It’s time for a new game; one with better graphics.

Recycle the Old Cycle

Some astrologers have been looking back with trepidation at the early 1930’s, when Uranus had previously squared Pluto. The world saw the Great Depression and the rise of totalitarian powers. Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!

The 30’s marked the approaching square, as an old cycle drew near its end at the conjunction of the 60’s. But now we are experiencing the receding square, as we put to the test what was created at the inception of the new cycle. Since we are calling ourselves and our consciousness to the natural process of evolving beyond such nonsense as economic and political slavery, it would be no surprise that these antiquated phenomena would raise their ugly heads for one last hurrah.

The quantum leap in evolution has come upon us, and it requires a leap of Faith. Either way, a leap constitutes a burst into action.

Tom Lescher: Astrology, Sheep, Individuation and Awakening

Astrologer Tom Lescher uploaded this video for the June 20, 2012 Summer Solstice. He covers two different squares happening — Uranus Square Pluto and Jupiter Square Neptune — as well as the Sun’s move into Cancer. He’s got some empowering information about those things that seem beyond our control. They are “nothing but a reflection of our own unconscious need to awaken” and he reminds us of the availability of “untapped reservoirs of help.”

Tom’s videos tend to resonate strongly with information I’ve been getting in sessions and my own meditations. He even talks about the Wheel of Fortune tarot card. The masculine/patriarchy “is on the top, but on its way down.” The feminine forces and “dark midnight” are turning towards the top. This doesn’t mean men vs. women. Within individuals the balancing of masculine and feminine energies will continue with feelings beginning “to rise up and impregnate the mind” with solutions and creative new energies. “Our feelings guide us into the reservoir of that unique, powerful Self.”

Tom’s advice and meditation:

‘May the waters of feeling from deep down within me guide me through the changes before me.’ There is so much going on I didn’t even get to Saturn going direct also! Next week we can look at the far reaching changes indicated in that event. For now, suffice it to say that it may be time to put the iphone down, turn off the chatter and listen inwardly for some REAL guidance in making tough choices. Aloha!”

(Just a quick note from Laura that the sound at the very end of the video is LOUD. Once he says, “Aloha, so much love. Namaste. Enjoy these times; they don’t come back,” I suggest you turn down the volume or hit mute. The rest of the video works perfectly. 🙂 )

Venus Transit June 5-6: Moving into a Higher Octave

Thanks to Gillian for bringing the following video to my attention. As Carl Boudreau explains, “This is a quick, no frills, special edition video about the Venus transit of the Sun. Just me saying some stuff. It is an important event and its meaning is a bit obscure, really. So somebody ought to take a crack at it.”

I’m not anything close to a professional astrologer, but I love when an astrologer explains some of the influences behind larger patterns I intuit and/or observe in international sessions and my own personal life experiences. IMHO, Carl’s comments on the shifting of Venus energy away from “sex, drugs, rock ‘n’ roll,” the “I just need to find my soul mate” idea, and “what’s in it for me?” categories are right on. As a planet, we are moving and truly need to continue moving into a higher octave of Love, which originates in and pours outward from a Love of God/Source/All That Is — kind of a “my cup overfloweth” sort of Love, which then permeates every aspect of our lives.

My impressions of this June 5-6 Venus transit of the Sun agree with Carl’s: many people will find it a difficult transition as life abruptly stops rewarding selfish manifestations and expectations of lower vibe “love.” On the flip side, those people who already come from a deeply loving, higher Venusian awareness of Universal Love will start feeling much more at home in this world. Consider the connection between Luciferianism and Venus, for example, along with the fact that Luciferians in high positions of power have been pummeling Earth in duality experiences for millenia. A significant change in the expression of Venusian energies may result in profound shifts in a society based on self-gratifying consumerism — a society already in its death throws. I say, “Bring it!” If you feel challenges around this Venus Transit, you can consider those opportunities to lift your Love vibe even more. How wide and long and high and deep is your love? Be the change.

The Energies and Astrology of May 2012

The outer world continues to simmer as our inner resentments, balance of power issues, fear, confusion and clarity boil to the surface inside of us. “Boil, purify, release, repeat” have seemed like April’s energies of the inner day. On the outside, from what I can tell, a number of big, landmark lawsuits have recently been filed regarding international money laundering, BP Oil “Spill” coverups, and various frauds committed at the highest levels of government. Time will tell how many of these lawsuits result in tangible changes, but the fact that so many have begun seems to indicate that things on the outside have nearly arrived at a rolling boil. We’ve also got “The Plan” described by Drake percolating in the background, along with highly militarized goings on in Chicago and Denver in late May. If those mass arrests of corrupt politicians, bankers and UN cronies start happening in May, it will be an interesting month, indeed!

Thanks to Lucas for the following Jennifer Hoffman post. For those people even more interested in the Astrology, I’ve got a video posted at the end, too.

The Energies of May
Jennifer Hoffman

If what is going to happen in May were happening at any other time during our evolving ascension path, I would say “Fasten your seatbelts because it’s going to be a bumpy ride.” Instead, I’m going to say that in May we are going to finally get some results from the work we have been doing since January 2012 and understand the pieces of a puzzle we have been working on for the last ten years or more. April was a month for endings and release. As I look at May I keep hearing the word ‘Start’, so it’s a month to get started. We may not even know what we’re starting, we just need to be willing to begin. With everything that happens this month, ask yourself these questions:

1. What am I learning from this situation?

2. Where is the healing for me?

3. What new beginnings are being created now?

Venus goes retrograde this month and in my experience, this brings about a value review. What we want and ask for is a reflection of our value and if you have been denying yourself something, pretending that you and your life are fine even if you don’t think that’s true, or not being clear on what you want in your life, this is going to bring light to that situation. The resolution lies in being honest with yourself, working on your value system, acknowledging yourself and having the courage to know you deserve the best, brightest, most wonderful outcome in every situation.

We also have a solar eclipse this month, which is the first of the 2012 eclipses and its degree and sign make it about karma. So expect to see an end to karmic cycles, become more aware of karmic partners and also have situations where you know that a relationship will end because the karma is over. While we may think that ending karma is a good thing (and it is), the outcome isn’t always easy because there is a powerful choice – move on together at a new, karma free vibration or separate forever. You may experience some separations this month, so thank the person for being part of your learning and healing and accept their choices, which is part of your own learning.

Expect more and bigger energy downloads too, probably extensive solar flare activity around mid-month, lots of emotional highs and lows that always accompany clearing and healing and some strong realizations that it’s time to release any limitations from the past. These are not easy experiences but we’re at a point in our evolution where we no longer have the luxury of hanging onto things that do not serve us. If we do, we’re not stepping into our power and there are consequences to that. It’s time for us to be willing to live in our mastery and to do that we need to shed our small thinking, poor self image, feelings of unworthiness and hoping that the world and the people in it will change for us. We are the change the world has been waiting for and with May’s energies our eyes will begin to open to the truth of our power and how much fun our life journey can be.

Have a wonderful month!

Also, for those who have more time or desire a more in-depth astrological look at May 2012, here’s a Carl Boudreau video I originally found on Shift Frequency. As Gillian describes it: “An amazing month. Tons of mutable energy, several six-pointed stars – including two different kinds, a five pointed star and a solar eclipse. A huge, overwhelming turning point of a month. Do not expect clarity. But you can expect a lot of help. As weird and wild and crazy as the vibes are, May is loaded with positive synchronicity.” The 39 minutes reveals all sorts of unusual layers in what looks to be a highly charged month on many levels:

Pluto Retrograde, Venus Retrograde Shadow 2012

Today we have another guest blog post from the lovely Electra Jung. This post speaks for itself, so I will keep my comments to a minimum. Let’s just say, I’m feeling and noticing all these things — in myself, in loved ones, in clients, in the world at large. “Humanity is now fully immersed into collective agreements — after all we are in this together — that life must change.” Yep! If you’re feeling it, too, please know that even the heavens support your inner journey.

Awareness begins…again

April 2012

Pluto retrograde, Venus retrograde shadow

Venus’ retrograde shadow April 11.
Become aware of the situations arising and what it is which demands your attention over the next days — whatever it is, you will be working with these energetics on many different levels over the next several months.

The astrological meaning of retrograde Venus is the re-evaluation of a person or situation in your life. This timing represents the changing conditions involving love, attractions, partners and emotions! Especially the more uncertain emotional connections… which may no longer “feel” in a state of balance. This leads to misinterpreting the intentions of others…in love and in partnerships. The time you devote creating relationships with things…with material items, creates an ego-identification with objects. Finally you merge yourself with illusion…dreaming, desiring, and obsessing with some-thing which can never return the emotional investment.

This is the time to reconsider all relationships in terms of their true value before making final commitments. .. and this is only the shadow period! Venus retrograde begins May 15th so the subtle concerns are now taking form in your thoughts and feelings.

Pressure and dis-content encourage you to re-evaluate who and what is meaningful and authentic before continuing into deeper levels. It is the hidden motivations and inhibitions which disguise true expression of love that are now brought to the surface for fuller expression and understanding. During this time there can be a growing distance and withdrawal from close involvements with others as the need to reflect on personal issues of discontent, vague desires and uncertainties. This is the gradual process to spiritualize the expression of love.

The spiritual void becomes a way of life … soul-less and mechanical interactions become the predominant pattern of accepted social exchange. The inauthentic life of Ego projection denies the intimacy of True relationship with all that is — nature herself — your-self. Soul lives through relationship and it is in soul that we find meaning.

“Loneliness is caused by an alienation from life. It is a loneliness from your real self.”

— Maxwell Maltz

We can have meaningful relationships with people, animals and other beings, projects, ideas and ideals. Each moment, we begin to free ourselves from the conditioning of the past and the suffering that it so often brings.

Take awareness to new levels. Experience yourself in the act of being aware. Be aware of awareness itself. To do this, we need to go beyond our old mechanical patterns, compulsions and rejections. We need to uproot the arrogance of ego. Now is the time to change our ways before it is too late for us as a species. It is up to each of us to take responsibility for our actions;

Pluto retrograde April 10: Pluto brings cleansing and transformation. The process of death and rebirth activates the evolution of consciousness.

Higher awareness is conscious of spirit and form working together. We must be conscious and present within before we can tune in to the guidance of our soul. Develop awareness to hear the subtlest whispers of intuition and give attention to your thoughts, feelings and sensations.

We are fast approaching the end of a great cosmic cycle leading to a massive leap in the evolution of human consciousness. This time requires you to remain totally present and accountable for action/ reactions. The illusions of outer events are simply mirroring the divine shift currently expressed as chaos and confusion.

“Rebirth and change are the watchwords of the month as the cosmic work necessary to bring about balance and harmony tears down the barriers and structures physical, mental, emotional, spiritual or etheric – erected to create fear, separation, division, protection and generate differences.” – Rev Angela

With awareness, we are fully involved with life. Awareness is sensing deeply and sensitively for what really is. We can be open and attentive.

Sent from a forecast subscriber:

“As I read through it, customers come in voicing the very problems you are writing about! Their families are alienating them, they find themselves spinning circles and not knowing where to go. They need reassurance that they are here, they are themselves, and they are experiencing these difficulties and finding they have to reinvent themselves yet again to keep pace with the madding world.”

Peace is found in the eye of the storm…the center of your Being and a renewed connection with your Inner voice… it is there…it is here…it is where one always finds the divine…with-in.

Awakening involves the conscious choice to develop yourself spiritually …beginning with introspection, make dietary changes to strengthen your physical body and begin movement in nature as exercise to re-connect with natural elements. Choose to become more enlightened …choose to be a vibration of higher consciousness that permeates into your environment.

Create a vibration that is free from fear and full of love and light. Not only will this state of consciousness help us individually, but it will also affect others around us.

As quantum physicist David Bohm explains, “When matter is investigated, it is revealed as an ocean of energy and light.”

Your physical self… made up of matter… is also considered an ocean of energy and light. Every thought and every word leads to action…moment by moment…directing your life either through an awakened state or by the robotic trance-states of non-being.

Faith and Trust: Believe in yourself, power, and responsibility of free will, and April will be a month in which deep inner realizations surface.

Humanity is now fully immersed into collective agreements — after all we are in this together — that life must change. It is the “change” manifesting within your inner-world. The place where Soul has always resided during this most difficult and tumultuous upheaval: you are the Change.

“The way of the Creative works is through change and transformation, so that each thing receives its true nature and destiny and comes into permanent accord with the great harmony: this is what furthers and what perseveres.” – I Ching.

Human consciousness

If we remain unaware, we:

– repeat the past,

– remain stuck in relationships,

– live superficial, literal and one dimensional lives,

– lack experiences of love and beauty, and

– have limited connection to others and the universe.

Barbara Marcinak’s Pleiadians have suggested for a very long time that we get away from machine technology as much as possible and start returning to nature. They even go so far as to say that Earth will eventually split into two worlds; one machine world, where people walk around like zombies, totally relying on technology to get through the day, and one world where people get together in communities and help each other out, living with nature and can thus evolve, in our bodies, together with Earth.
