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 Old and outdated patterns of behavior cause limitations.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.

Timothy Glenn ~ Uranus Square Pluto Part Five: A Grand Cross to Bear

My friend, astrologer Timothy Glenn, returns with a spirited update on the next Uranus Square Pluto — the fifth in a series of seven. Reading this article reminded me of his Heliocentric Square piece about the significance of November 23, 2013. Light bulb! I have been saying for months that I was never so glad to finish a month as I was to get through November 2013. I had completely forgotten about that as an astrological hinge point. No wonder I’ve felt like coasting downhill since that month ended.

Anyway, back to April 2014, which most Earth-centric astrologers have pegged as hugely significant. Indeed, we have loads of energies influencing us right now! I always enjoy how Tim describes planetary actions like a great big, crazy family and friends reunion. What will Uncle Jupiter do next?! Will Uranus and Jupiter gang up on Mars? Tim’s wonderful humor and wisdom put these wild energies into perspective. Enjoy the ride!

Uranus Square Pluto Part Five
A Grand Cross to Bear

By Timothy Glenn

The most powerful astrological influence of our time takes quite a bit of time, which contributes to its influence being so powerful. Even here in the heart of this transit (the seven exact squares of the planets of evolution and revolution) more than two and a half years elapse. The first exact square of Uranus to Pluto occurred on June 24, 2012. The seventh will put the cap on the process on March 16, 2015.

The earlier articles in this series harkened back to the imagery and energy of the Sixties, when Uranus and Pluto formed their conjunction. Whatever is birthed at the conjunction is called into action and put to the test at the square, and now is the time. The universe is throwing the gauntlet before humanity: “Remember all that wonderful idealism of the Sixties? Did you really mean all that? Show us.”

But we are not going back to the Sixties. In November of 2013 we crossed the midway mark with the fourth of the seven exact squares, in addition to the one and only Heliocentric Square. So now the Sixties nostalgia can fade into the background as we move forward into the mysterious future we are busily co-creating.

Friends Join the Party

At their Heliocentric square last November, Uranus and Pluto received amplification and blessing from the ever popular Jupiter, who opposed Pluto and squared Uranus in a T-square. We might regard the Heliocentric square as the most significant of all. It only happens once and is seen from the perspective of the Sun, and therefore sets the tone for the entire phenomenon at the level of the whole solar system. Earth is not playing solitaire any more than the rest of us are. We are playing a game of co-creation.

Not by coincidence, for the fifth exact square from our geocentric perspective, Jupiter will form an even tighter T-square with Uranus and Pluto. This will provide massive stimulation for us, but Mars retrograde in Libra will turn the T-square into a Cardinal Grand Cross. And then the Moon gets into the action by crossing over Pluto.

Even though the fifth exact Uranus/Pluto square happens on April 21st, the overall adventure of the Cardinal Grand Cross will span April 20th through 22nd with a total of ten exact aspects. The festivities will commence with Uncle Jupiter exactly squaring revolutionary Uranus. The Moon will then trigger the energies of the Grand Cross. It will conjunct Pluto, square Uranus, oppose Jupiter and square Mars within an hour and a half. Let the games begin.

Jupiter will proceed to oppose Pluto, setting the stage for the fifth exact square of Uranus to Pluto on the 21st. Mars will close the ceremonies on the 22nd by squaring Jupiter, opposing Uranus and finally squaring Pluto.

Your Mission, Should You Choose to Accept It…

If this fails to stimulate you, there is a chance you may be dead. Ask your doctor. The Cardinal Grand Cross first reaches culmination on Easter Sunday, so maybe you could get resurrected. Ask your minister.

None of the planets involved here are known for placidity. The intensity might have been lower if Pluto had formed a Grand Cross with Venus, Saturn and Neptune. But the universe is obviously telling us to buck up and do whatever we incarnated on Planet Earth to do.

Squares demand action. If we take appropriate action, squares will help us. On the other hand, if we refuse to take action, the planets involved will most likely kick our asses from one end of the solar system to the other. Perhaps in less intense times, people could get away with dumbing down, numbing out, and burying their heads a little deeper in the sand. But a foursquare demand from the likes of Pluto, Uranus, Jupiter and Mars at an extremely critical pass in our history will diminish the chances of successfully dodging the call to the Quest. Couch potatoes, beware.

What – me worry?

Although the doomers and gloomers point at Mars and fear the world bursting into flames, we have choice. We are playing a game of consciousness; a game of creating our own reality. Planetary influences aside, nothing overshadows the power of our creative power as Divine Beings.

Here is a thumbnail sketch of how the “Powers That Would Be” operate. They lie, distort and spin their propaganda to elicit fear, and more significantly, belief in that fear. Although these falsehoods pile up into the sky and send their stench into the heavens, this looks like nothing compared to the corporate propaganda machine’s chief weapon: the Almighty Omission. The humans who watch what they think is “the news”, especially in the Anglosphere, are blocked from pertinent facts and thus duped into feeding their own creative power into helping the global manipulators manifest wars and whatever else. Where thought goes, energy flows.

An awakened humanity will not be so duped. Ignorance and credulity are not recommended, but rather the ability to see the machinations of the so-called Dark Side and the possible manifestations, but not to get suckered into the mass hysteria they try to generate, and to channel our creative consciousness into more resonant outcomes.

Let It Be

The Uranus/Pluto square serves as a massive wake-up call, and the Cardinal Grand Cross of April 2014 cranks up the volume on the public address system.

To the degree that you are currently manifesting as a direct expression of The Infinite, how can you maintain your poise in the midst of global madness? Perhaps you could look at the old system and see it as a dragon in the throes of death. Understanding that within the context of this alleged “reality”, the dragon is most dangerous in the throes of death, perhaps you could exercise the faith that your Spirit can guide you to avoid the thrashing tail and the occasional spurts of flame. You can understand that the dragon of the old world is dying as you wend your way into the New Earth. You can bless the illusory dragon and let it be.

This principle can be widely applied. If you fight it, you feed it. And yet there may be times your Spirit will move you to take an action that looks political, since there are no rules. It may be as simple as looking a corrupt government straight in the eye and using some of their old advice: Just Say No. But for the most part, we can forgive it, let it go, and let it be.

The World Is As You Dream It

Everything in astrology can be interpreted in a variety of ways. Let’s play with a few perspectives on facets of the Cardinal Grand Cross.

Pluto rules the underworld and all things hidden. Capricorn involves everything to do with the public. So Pluto in Capricorn brings deep dark hidden secrets out into the public eye. This can help Uranus with his job of awakening the slumbering bumblers.

Even though the energies of Mars have often been manipulated into warfare, Mars is currently running retrograde, and thus more difficult to use for triggering conflagration. He is also in Libra, which further mitigates the martial tendencies.

Mars is also opposed by Uranus occupying the sign ruled by Mars, and who is telling Mars to direct his efforts into a mass awakening to freedom for the world. At the same time, Uncle Jupiter in Cancer is squaring Mars and saying, “Not on my watch, buddy.”

Uncle Jupiter in Cancer will not be outdone, so the love of the human family can stand firm in the face of the Plutocracy of the old Capricornian system.

The Cardinal Grand Cross does not need to represent planets opposing each other as in contending, arguing or fighting. Opposite signs complement each other. The four squares can also be seen as laying the foundation for the New Earth. All four planets can be co-creatively supporting each other. You decide.

Playing God = God Playing

The fifth exact square of Uranus to Pluto falls on April 21, 2014. 4 + 21 = 25. 2014 = 2 + 0 + 1 + 4 = 7. 25 + 7 = 32. July 4, 1776 also adds up to 32, the number of liberation.

The 32 can look King George directly in the eye and say, “King George, we know you rule the British Empire, and that the British Empire is growing to encompass a quarter of the landmass of the globe. We know your navies rule the seven seas, and that the sun never sets on the British Empire. But – as far as we are concerned, you can take your empire and shove where the sun never shines at all.”

This compelling call to freedom can challenge our very concept of freedom itself. From the Proterrian channelings: “If you are stuck in one embodiment, you are not free. If you are stuck in one world, you are not free. If you are stuck in one dimension, you are not free. Thou art God. Now act like it!”

Anyone with at least one eye partially open will notice the effects of this fifth exact geocentric square of Uranus and Pluto, especially as the centerpiece of the Cardinal Grand Cross which is in turn sandwiched between two notable eclipses. The real awakening is to our own Divinity. You are an expression of the Infinitude. Nothing else exists. Otherwise, we would call it the Infinitude Plus Everything Else That Exists.

It sometimes helps to view this world as a virtual reality computer game. The Infinitude is playing the part of You, no matter who or what you think you are within the context of the game. You can awaken the Infinite within you and play the game accordingly.

Maybe at this stage of the scenario, God would hack into the mainframe of The Matrix and start reprogramming the game. And since we are all God, we could start our careers as Divine Hackers by making one particular adjustment to the nature of the game. Let’s make it love-based instead of fear-based. And if we have trouble transcending the old interpretations of conflicting energies in a Cardinal Grand Cross, we can remember the old adage, “Love conquers all.”

My Own Take on this Mercury Retrograde, Beginning February 6, 2014

Several people have asked me for a gloss on Ann’s and others’ articles about this potent Mercury Retrograde period, which began on February 6, 2014 at 4:44 p.m. East Coast time and officially runs through February 27th, not counting the Shadow Periods on either end. I encourage people to read or reread my earlier general tips for surviving and even thriving in Mercury Retrograde, but due to the requests for more clarity and guidance about this particular one, I will share some additional observations here.

First of all, I have a lot of Mercury in my chart. Tons. Mercury rules my Gemini Sun and my Virgo Ascendant, and I’ve got lots of key planets in Gemini, which means that I needed to learn how to turn Mercury Retrograde periods to my own advantage, or else face extreme inconvenience and even disaster for 9-12 weeks per year. Been there, done that … for awhile. No thanks! After some rough go rounds, I opted for learning how to thrive during the Rx periods, and the article linked above shares some of the most transferable ways to do that.

When examining this particular Merc Rx, the biggest factor appears to be Neptune, which rules addictions, illusions, mystical experiences, the ocean, and the sign of Pisces. Since Mercury Retrograde periods tend to build upon previous Merc Rx’s, they provide opportunities to review and revise where we found ourselves in the past few Mercury Retrograde periods. If you can’t remember those details, have a look at this chart and your calendar. Perhaps it will jog some memories. This first Merc Rx of 2014 — occurring in dreamy Neptune — will support (read: “push”) you to reevaluate areas of life in which you’ve allowed yourself to be fooled by illusions, sucked into addictions (relationships, substances, habits), or “forced” to invite inappropriate boundaries.

Anytime we find ourselves bamboozled, it’s tempting to blame the other person, the government, “the cabal” or whomever we feel perpetrated the deception. This Mercury Retrograde period will call us out as individuals who willingly participated in the lies. As individuals and as a society, we will need to accept our own responsibility in the dance of illusion, addiction and legerdemain, or else actively relegate ourselves to delusions that will — at best — prevent full satisfaction in life and — at worst — potentially result in the extermination of the human race. Yes, the stakes are high right now, and this first quarter of 2014 raises them even more.

I often recommend the website http://narcissismfree.com, both for the articles and the valuable ebooks. Kaleah does a great job explaining the sticky web of lies and illusion used by narcissists to ensnare their “victims,” and we live in an incredibly narcissistic society. I appreciate Kaleah’s work because she empowers people to see beyond the script, beyond what magicians and the Faery Realm call the “Glamour” — specters and projections that bear little resemblance to reality. In fact, the narcissistic web and “Glamour” often present the exact opposite of reality, making the ugly appear beautiful, the weak impenetrable, and the vampire generous. Throughout and following this Mercury Retrograde in Neptune, humanity will suffer exponentially greater pain for failing to pierce the Glamour. Those who do dismantle the projections will likely feel initial shock replaced by more freedom, exhilaration and possibility than they’ve ever felt before.

On a global level, I find it interesting that the Olympics fall smack dab in Mercury Retrograde. Whatever dastardly false flag plans anyone has for those Games will likely face the wrath of Murphy’s Law; however, any grand illusion presented might initially gain a worldwide following. That belief should be short lived, though, and the global backlash against what eventually reveals itself as obvious trickery might amuse a different kind of spectator. I would suggest a 30-day unplugging challenge during this Merc Rx and Shadow period. If you own a tell-LIE-vision, turn the lying thing off! If you listen to talk radio, turn it off. Ditto most Hollywood films. Without those three bastions of mass illusion for 30 days, you’ll go a long way towards reclaiming your mind.

If you know you have an active addiction to something else, then now might be a great time to review how you got into that set of circumstances in the first place. Consider upgrading any addictions you know you have. If you want to quit smoking, transmute that compulsion into exercise and/or meditation. Until humans fully heal, addictive holes remain, so it’s usually much easier to replace an addiction with a better quality habit than just trying to eliminate it.

If you, like me, like to utilize the predominant energies to amplify intentions, then get creative! Nebulous Neptune blurs boundaries, which can really help with brainstorming. If you’ve set aside a creative project, then the current energies support a fresh look and revision. If something seemingly immovable in your life or in this world upsets you, then the current energies offer optimal times for what I call Houdini-ing your way out. In order to escape illusions, it helps to know how one creates illusions. You can reverse engineer magick and Glamour as much as scientists reverse engineer technology. Deconstruct, revise, and rebuild. During Mercury Retrograde, think “re-.” Neptune gives you the most potent areas for the re-‘s: addictions, illusions, deceptions, and all things murky or lost at sea.

Haha, I just typed “see” instead of “sea,” and both meanings hold true for this period. Practice seeing with your inner eye, and you’ll find intuition expands.

[WordPress just told me I finished the initial post at 888 words, which emphasizes the infinite potential of this period, doubles the 4:44 start time of the Mercury Retrograde, and, according to Doreen Virtue:

“888 — A phase of your life is about to end, and this is a sign to give you forewarning to prepare. This number sequence may mean you are winding up an emotional career or relationship phase. It also means there is light at the end of the tunnel. In addition it means, The crops are ripe. Don’t wait to pick and enjoy them. In other words, don’t procrastinate in making your move or enjoying the fruits of your labor.”

Wise words.]

Timothy Glenn ~ 2014: A Call to Revelation

Yay! A New Year’s gift from my friend, Tim. I love how he and I both independently arrived at the 8 of Wands card as related to 2014. Tim offers a numerological explanation for why that Robin Wood image continues to haunt me. The Chariot card and 8 of Wands also came up in the traditional New Year’s Eve trade that Tania Marie and I pull for each other every year, and James Gilliland’s 2014 forecast alludes to “incoming objects from space.” The upcoming Chinese New Year designates 2014 as the Year of the Horse, which further underscores the Chariot card energy.

In other words, this one resonates, although I would still remind everyone to let your love flow to this beautiful planet, too, including tangible, loving actions to support and nurture her. True love requires no real (or unreal) reasons for loving action; such gestures just naturally spill forth from heartfelt love. 🙂

Anyway, here’s Tim:

2014: A Call To Revelation
by Timothy Glenn

The stilted, unnatural Gregorian calendar has flipped itself into a new year. The Sun is not impressed. The planets are not impressed. Not even the Moon is impressed. On the other hand, hominid creatures clambering around on Planet Earth put a lot of stock in this calendar system, so its numerological influences will affect this entire biosphere in which we live.

Uranus Square Pluto Unleashed

From June 2012 to March 2015, Uranus will exactly square Pluto seven times. At least, that is what it looks like from Planet Earth.From the perspective of the Sun, this phenomenon occurs only one time, and that one time fell on November 23, 2013. As of that date, all bets are off. Even though the world-changing effects of this transit will continue to unfold throughout the solar system, the influence has been unleashed and the unimpeded impacts can now be experienced on every planet, moon, asteroid and comet.

Pluto and Uranus exert a compelling causal factor in and ofthemselves. But The Big Guy, Uncle Jupiter Himself, is adding an extra wallop. As Uranus and Pluto moved into their Heliocentric square at 11 degrees of Aries and Capricorn, Uncle Jupiter in Cancer exactly opposed Pluto in Capricorn and then promptly squared Uranus in Aries, triggering the potential of the other two planets in their long term transmutational project. The oomph of the Heliocentric square was further amplified because Jupiter had not advanced beyond 11 degrees on November 23, giving us a major aspect known as a T-square an activator extraordinaire.

All Squared Away

Now we have been prepared for astrological fallout like we have not seen in many lifetimes. Are you looking for a quiet, pastoral 2014? Try another solar system.

Monumental events could burst into our lives at any moment. So much is happening and pending that volumes could be written on the subject. In fact, voluminous writings are spread all over the internet. Feel free to take a look, but you might be wise to install your filters and sharpen your sense of resonance, because disinformation and misguided speculation abound.

A noteworthy trigger point will occur on April 21 at the next exact Geocentric square of Uranus and Pluto. This fifth exact square looms larger than life because Jupiter will once again form a T-square with the other two planets, this time from a Geocentric perspective. And instead of triggering them a few days before the exact event, Jupiter will set them off a matter of hours before they go exact.

As a launching pad for this blast of transformational energy, the Tsquare will occur within an orb of four minutes of arc. The tighter the orb, the more powerful the aspect, and four minutes definitely qualifies as tight. This T-square will be far from floppy.

With revolutionary Uranus being exactly activated by Jupiter and Pluto on the same day, duplicating the Heliocentric pattern established last November, we can expect action. We can choose to sit back and let all the action be taken by wannabe planetary controllers and other pretenders, or we can opt for pro-active involvement in co-creating the New Earth.

The Pervert-a-Word of the Month Award

2014 promises to become an Apocalyptic year. But here we encounter another word game engineered to trip up the Earthlings. In this game, the object is to convince people that the word Apocalypse denotes catastrophe.

From the ancient Greek, the term Calypso denotes hiding, veiling, concealing. An Apocalypse simply means an unveiling. But then, when the unveiling happens within our own Shadow, most Earthlings tend to regard the experience as catastrophic.

Carl Gustav Jung said: “Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.” However, the unveilings due to happen in the external world just might upset the status quo. Proterrian observes: “An apocalypse is only a disaster to those who do not want the truth to be known.”

One of the professional hats worn by Uranus is that of Revelator. Especially with Jupiter involved, the evolutionary Pluto plus the revolutionary Uranus will equal Revelation. Whether any particular unveiling engenders calamity for you is your choice, but only sleeping sheeple would expect the world to look the same by the end of 2014.

Signs in the Sky

Basic numerology places us in a 7 year, a cycle of harvest. Many consider this to be a period of karmic resolution; a season of reaping what has been sown. To some degree, this may be so. However, more of us are awakening to the opportunity to step out of karma and into Grace. We have seen through the illusions of the old world’s distorted so-called “law” of karma that had been imposed on this planet for millennia on end.

The time has come for us to move on, and seventh card of the Tarot deck presents an image of moving on: the Chariot. An effective rendering of the Chariot card can be found in the Robin Wood Tarot. If you look at the starry canopy behind the charioteer, and soften your gaze, you will most likely be able to see the canopy as a portal.Assuming the role of the charioteer, you can become a living portal for the magic that can come into this world from the Starry Realms.

We have nothing to fight, nothing to win, nothing to accomplish; only illusions to transcend; only love to integrate. Anything that fails to resonate with your feeling of Heaven on Earth can simply dissolve. With support from the Uranus/Pluto square and its urge for self-determination,
moving beyond the illusions of the Matrix will grow easier with every step.

2014 = 20 + 14 = 34

On another level, we have entered a 34 cycle. Card 34 is the 8 of Wands, where we see aligned energies coming from above, moving down to the Earth. The Robin Wood deck shows the wands descending not merely from the sky, but from interplanetary space. In fact, Uncle Jupiter is plainly depicted.

In 2014 it would be wise to remain open to a broad spectrum of possibilities as to what might emerge from our skies, in addition to what will emerge from within ourselves. The space winds of change are billowing.

When the number 34 comes up during a reading, I like to present the 8 of Wands first from the Robin Wood Tarot, and then from the Universal Waite. This emphasizes that indeed the incoming energies are approaching Earth from “way out there”, but that these energies are being brought all the way down to the green fields of Earth. They are to be grounded and utilized.

In zodiacal numerology, 34 expresses the essence of Capricorn; not the most airy-fairy sign. Capricorn insists that everything we bring in must be given practical application. Metaphysical foo-foo will not work here.

May You Live in Interesting Times

The words of the subheading have been labeled “an ancient Chinese curse”. Perhaps the Apocalypse will show us how to morph curses into blessings, and fear into love. Perspective, interpretation and response are choices we make. If we can but choose to love ourselves enough, the Revelations of 2014 will open us to a genuinely new reality.

Rose colored glasses are not recommended. May you live in interesting times, 2014 for instance, but may you love yourself enough to keep the Sword of Discernment sharp and ready. Let the adventure begin.
