New Moon in Gemini ~ May 30, 2022

I’m posting this one early, too, because yowza! Preparation allows us to surf these energies and even benefit from them. My May 2022 Forecast shared:

May 30 New Moon in Gemini, 7:30 a.m. Eastern US time. The Sabian Symbol for this New Moon point is AN AIRPLANE PERFORMING A NOSE DIVE. Will it be a Blue Angels show — or a crash from the air? The stakes could not be higher. Success takes boldness, but we’ll have that with a sextile from the Jupiter/Mars conjunction in fiery Aries. Meanwhile, Mercury and the North Node in Taurus square Saturn in Aquarius, urging us to negotiate what seems like an impossible situation. Suspense, action, skill. “Come fly with me, let’s fly, let’s fly, Pack up, let’s fly away!”

These energies are real nail biters, but they hold great potential for an amazing turnaround. Dane Rudhyar’s full Sabian Symbol description adds further nuance:

PHASE 70 (GEMINI 10°): AN AIRPLANE PERFORMING A NOSE DIVE.  

KEYNOTE: A superior ability to challenge nature and play with danger.

Through the controlled use of mental powers man is able to challenge the most basic force in nature: gravitation. He enjoys playing with it as a lion tamer with his violent animals. But what he challenges is within himself as well as outside. Gravitation is the universal binding force of the material world. By challenging it man prepares himself to pierce beyond the physical and to reach higher realms of existence. He may lose the struggle, but that prospect makes the effort more exciting. He might gain “immortality.”

This is the final stage of the fourteenth sequence. The symbol for it has a strong sense of finality. No possibility of half measures exist. Man is committed irrevocably to success or failure — at least as a conscious and self-reliant mind. The alternatives are clear-cut. One may describe it as MIND vs. MATTER, or as Man’s will against the fate that gravitation so aptly symbolizes.

Mercury conjunct the North Node at this time encourages on-path information and communication. Our understanding aligns with the collective destiny point, and this new worldview helps to turn the plane around. This is not a time for bravado and misplaced confidence. It’s a time to take calculated risks — recognizing the stakes and troubleshooting ahead of time. In the moment, things could happen very fast, but if we’ve practiced, imagined, and otherwise prepared ourselves in advance, this New Moon supports bold moves and quantum leaps. We can literally transcend the prior limitations of our own minds.

Mercury and the North Node in Taurus squaring Saturn in Aquarius put extra emphasis on the need for sober, practical risk assessment. This is not a time for pie in the sky “oh, it’ll all work out” thinking. It’s a time to look Truth in the face and come up with innovative solutions to a seemingly hopeless and impossible state of affairs. Only by facing hard, cold reality, can we tap into the level of inspiration and support we need. Divine help is at hand, but we aren’t inclined to receive that help if we don’t think we need it.

The saying, “There are no atheists in foxholes” tracks with this New Moon. Neptune in Pisces sextile Mercury and the North Node, and a sextile to the New Moon from Jupiter/Mars in Aries add to our capacity for faith. But we need to ground that faith in action and understanding. A true partnership with the Divine will turn the plane around. Without that alignment, the plane will probably crash. All odds point to disaster, but in those moments of greatest desperation — when we synchronize with Divine Will — miracles happen. God helps those who help themselves, and in the darkest times, God performs the greatest feats.

Prepare yourself, because now is such a time.

Addendum: I had this post already written and scheduled for 5:55 a.m. publication. It’s 2:53 a.m., and I just wrote up a dream during which I realized that this New Moon offers a chance to set intentions for later this Fall when Mars crosses that same point in Gemini.

Watch for flickers (aka previews) of issues and concerns leading up to this May 30th New Moon. These will offer hints of future trajectories, which we can shift by recognizing the signs ahead of time. Use this awareness to set intentions and create strategies for later this year and into 2023.

This can be a personal or collective process. If you have significant placements around 5-15 Gemini (plus Sagittarius, Pisces or Virgo), you’ll be most affected by the New Moon. If you have natal placements or relationship synastry around 20-29 degrees Taurus or Aquarius (plus Scorpio or Leo), you’ll be most affected by the Mercury/North Node square Saturn aspect that occurs at the time of the New Moon. With the North Node involved, everyone will be affected in some way, but people with those degrees will receive most of the “Achtung, Baby!” around the time of this New Moon.

I view this as a gift from that Jupiter/Mars sextile — a master daredevil telling you how to fly your plane. Think of it as support for pulling a Blue Angels turnaround instead of crashing and burning. Again: help is available. This is a literal “heads up” to see the amazing opportunity so you can seize it and fly high instead of crashing and burning.

Full Moon in Scorpio Total Lunar Eclipse ~ May 15-16, 2022

Since we’re already in Eclipse Season, this feels important enough to post the write-up early. I’ll re-blog it closer to the actual date.

My May 2022 Forecast notes:

May 16 Full Moon in Scorpio, Lunar Eclipse, 12:14 a.m. Eastern US time. Also known as the Flower Moon, this is a South Node Eclipse that asks us to adapt quickly to changing situations. As flowers move from bud to bloom to faded petals to seed, we, too, need to embrace ever evolving shifts. The South Node brings a karmic flavor to any collective Shadow Work. With Uranus near the Sun point, we can expect rebellious, revolutionary and liberating insights to trigger some of the karmic release.

This is a Total Lunar Eclipse, which makes it even more powerful. According to Dane Rudhyar, the Sabian Symbol for the Full Moon point is:

PHASE 236 (SCORPIO 26°): AMERICAN INDIANS MAKING CAMP AFTER MOVING INTO A NEW TERRITORY.

KEYNOTE: The ability to adjust swiftly to a new situation by tuning in to its requirements.

It brings to us a message we greatly need today — the message of peaceful adaptation to nature, and through adaptation, of EFFICIENT FUNCTIONING in all life situations.  

(You can read the full description here.)

This push to adapt occurs with Mercury Retrograde urging us to review, reevaluate, and reconsider. Just before the Full Moon, Venus conjuncts Chiron in Aries, the sign of action. The Goddess of Love invites us to heal wounds around our relationships and self-esteem. Then the powerful South Node Lunar Eclipse in deep, dark, watery Scorpio initiates a cleanse and regeneration. In orb at the time of the eclipse and most exact on May 18, Mars conjuncts Neptune in Pisces. My May Forecast explained:

May 18 Mars conjunct Neptune in Pisces. In the days preceding this date through perhaps a day or so after, sensitivity kicks up several notches. Depending on how you process Neptune energies, you might feel like a dreamy romantic or a paranoid schizophrenic. Empaths should practice extra good energy hygiene during this time. Meditation, creative projects, and beautiful lovemaking are all favored. You’ll want to protect your energy, though. Harshness, violence and warlike postures will disturb you more than usual. Lean into the dreamier, spiritual side of Neptune, instead of confusion and delusion.

Mars often acts ahead of time, so these energies may peak at the moment of eclipse. In any case, eclipse energies continue for six months, so the Mars-Neptune conjunction in watery, boundary-less Pisces colors this eclipse with the energy of high stakes spiritual and psychological warfare. It also empowers us to take action: to position ourselves to receive spiritual and emotional healing.

The potential for paranoia, confusion and delusion gets amplified by the Full Moon point closely conjuncting Ceto. This TNO (Trans Neptunian Object) signifies “the creation of monsters within us and around us: the perception of monstrous ness, the assigning of the designation of monster to what is around or within us.” Linda Lee Berry continues:

The monster is that which is extremely different. It is often tied to that which creates a feeling of fear or revulsion within us. Sometimes this is horrendous as in a Nazi Doctor. Sometimes it is just alien to regular human experience, like Spock or a dwarf. Children’s fairy tales abound with monsters for a reason. At core we fear to be rejected for our differentness, for our failure to meet the expectations of those around us and so when we are children we deny and repress that within us that is different and thus unacceptable in our world and it becomes the monster(s) within us. Only when we face and transform these monsters can we reclaim the denied aspects of ourselves and become whole. The aspects to Ceto describe our personal monsters and the monsters we meet in the world, as well as the relationship we have to monsters both within us and around us.

The sign of Scorpio deals with the Shadow — those scary, rejected parts of ourselves that we vilify in others. As dark secrets, abuse and shame erupt, we will feel tempted to point fingers, then run and hide. But we cannot continue to project the darkness outside ourselves. A complete reckoning forces us to acknowledge our own complicity in the horrors we see.

In order to survive and heal, we must recognize and reclaim responsibility. Doing so allows us to make different choices that lead to very different results. The weight of this responsibility encourages us to lean into concepts like confession, forgiveness, and Grace. “Repent” literally means “to turn,” to shift course. We can’t just mouth the words. Our actions need to change, as well.

This May 16 Full Moon Lunar Eclipse feels like a major hinge point in human evolution. In addition to the ominous Ceto, the Full Moon point auspiciously conjuncts another TNO called Deucalion — a Noah-like figure saved from a catastrophic flood. This bodes well for the rebirth and regeneration also associated with Scorpio. According to Alex Miller:

“Deucalion was a son of Prometheus, a righteous and upright man who, with his wife Pyrrha, was saved from a huge flood Zeus sent to punish and destroy mankind for its hubris and savagery. Forewarned by his father, Deucalion built a huge wooden chest to ride out the raging seas. After they receded, Deucalion made an offering to Zeus to thank him, and consulted an oracle about how to repopulate the earth. He was told to cover his head, and throw the bones of his mother behind him. Deucalion understood this to be a metaphor, and theorizing that the Earth was the mother of all, and its rocks her bones, he and Pyrrha tossed stones behind them. Those that Deucalion threw became men, and those thrown by Pyrrha became women. Deucalion is the name given to a TNO (Trans-Neptunian Object) from the Kuiper Belt region of the solar system, near Pluto.

“Astrologically, Deucalion represents being overwhelmed or ‘flooded,’ saved from disaster by seemingly divine intervention; renewal and starting over; and having advance knowledge of a difficulty or potential disaster. There can also be a strong moral code, a highly developed sense of right and wrong.”

Many cultures have similar stories of a Great Flood that wiped out much of humanity as a way to purify the Earth. At this time, we might experience the “flood” in a literal sense, but more likely as a flood of life-changing, civilization-course-correcting information. Saturn (aka Father Time and Lord of Karma) squares the Sun-Moon axis from Aquarius, adding to the sense of morality. Saturn tells us to get our affairs in order and take a stand. He pressures us to get things right.

As Above, So Below. As Within, So Without.

I’ll leave you with a potent dream I had the morning after this post flowed out of me. It feels both personal and collective — like I continued processing the Full Moon in Scorpio Total Lunar Eclipse as I slept:

5/6/2022
“Woman in a Black Dress”

A vivid fragment, seen from behind: a woman in a long, black dress walking a path with steep drops on either side. The scenery was stark, but stunning. She wore a wide-brimmed black wool hat like I wore at my father’s funeral. She made her way — step by slow, careful step — along a narrow, natural bridge between two realities.

New Moon in Taurus Solar Eclipse ~ April 30, 2022

My April 2022 Forecast notes:

April 30 New Moon in Taurus Solar Eclipse 4:28 p.m. Eastern US time. This is a North Node eclipse, sextile Mars in Pisces and loosely conjunct revolutionary Uranus in Taurus. It’s also the traditional celebration of Beltane Eve. Venus (the Love Goddess and ruler of Taurus) also conjuncts Jupiter in Pisces, expanding the earthy, sensual connection of Beltane. Known as a Black Moon, the second New Moon in a month brings extra potent, magical energy. In the sign of the North Node on a day of very thin veils, this powerful Solar Eclipse points to our highest collective destiny and reminds us of the almost unbelievable — yet real and grounded — transforming Power of Love.

This potent eclipse occurs one day after Mercury enters his home sign of Gemini and Pluto stations retrograde in Capricorn. Lots of shifting energies! Beltane marks one of four crossquarter days when trooping faeries are said to change homes. Pluto rules the Underworld, where many faeries live in an alternate dimension, while Mercury aids communication of all sorts — including across the veils. During a Solar Eclipse on a day of already very permeable boundaries, we can expect spontaneous downloads and deep insights. Taurus expresses through sensuality and the physical realm, but these Mercury and Pluto transits encourage deeper messages to arise through touch.

The North Node tells us such messages will point in the direction of our collective destiny, and Uranus offers liberation. All this, surrounded by an air of beauty, grace, and abundance, courtesy of the Venus-Jupiter conjunction. A truly yummy, magical day!

But wait, there’s more ….

This New Moon in Taurus Solar Eclipse conjuncts Albion. Originally known as QB1, it was the very first TNO (Trans Neptunian Object) found after Pluto. Discovered in 1992, QB1 proved a theory that our solar system extends far beyond lonely Pluto. According to Benjamin Adamah:

The astrological meaning of asteroid 15760 Albion (1992 QB1): emancipation, building bridges between social groups or different times, forming substantial new connections which catalyse major Zeitgeist-changes

In 2018 it was renamed Albion after William Blake’s version of the mythical Adam Kadmon. In the creation mythology of Blake (1757-1827), Albion is the island-dwelling primordial man who divided himself into the four Zoas (Urthona, Urizen, Luvah and Tharmas), each representing important aspects of human character.

Albion by William Blake

—-

William Blake was a poet, artist and mystic. In some ways, his work epitomizes the permeable energies of this Solar Eclipse. The image above reminds me of fire purification from traditional Beltane ceremonies. It also evokes a more jubilant version of Leonardo da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man:

Vitruvian Man by Leonardo da Vinci

Blake combined art and poetry, while da Vinci integrated art and science. Both men tapped into a rare — yet somehow accessible — Genius. They reached beyond the norms of their day and brought new visions and ideas to life.

This New Moon Solar Eclipse conjunct Albion supercharges our ability to stretch beyond known limits — to expand our experience of reality by interfacing with new worlds at the edge of our fingertips, toes and all our senses. To me, this speaks to an important opportunity for human evolution. It’s not our only chance, but the sign of Taurus increases our ability to ground lightning bolts of inspiration into tangible form and function.

If this post seems abstract, drop into your body and feel what this Cosmic Conjunction holds for you. Taurus knows we can learn in many ways beyond our intellect. This potent New Moon in Taurus invites us to align with Nature, get grounded and revel in our activation. I’ll leave you with the Sabian Symbol for this Solar Eclipse, PHASE 41 (TAURUS 11°): A WOMAN WATERING FLOWERS IN HER GARDEN.

… followed by a 2012 photo that recently resurfaced in a magical way:

Laura Bruno in her very first garden

In a synchro whammy, highly charged, Cosmic Costume Designer way, the spontaneous reappearance of this 2012 photo on David’s new iPhone led me to discover and receive the dress below.:

Some people claim it’s Saturn, but I see a spaceship beaming across the starry multiverse. Sometimes “A WOMAN WATERING FLOWERS IN HER GARDEN” leads to a vast and different realm. This powerful Eclipse may be one such time.

Happy Earth Day!

Dear Mama Earth,

Happy Earth Day!

In honor of you, I was going to write a long blog post calling for actual detoxifying, beautifying and protective solutions — not just green-washing of other agendas in the name of “sustainability.” Then I realized I painted a portal for that very thing, way back in February 2014. I’ve already reblogged it, so I’ll just link to it again here. Sorry it’s taking so long to fully unfold. May it become so!

With so much love and gratitude,

Laura

So much truth in here! Hat tip to Ann Kreilkamp:

Shambhala Warrior Prophecy

I’ve been posting and reposting Joanna Macy’s version of this story for nearly a decade. It feels especially relevant right now:

A Potent Dream: “My Brother, the Artist”

This feels like a collective dream — like “my brother” represents much of humanity right now. Immediately after writing down the dream, I logged onto my blog and wrote the March 2, 2022 ~ New Moon in Pisces post. Since the dream feels related to today’s New Moon, I’ll share it here on the actual New Moon day. I’ve left this unedited, so please excuse the transcribed dream dialog, where I drop the f-bomb. The dream feels cinematic and potent. I didn’t want to diminish its power by altering the words. If this offends you, please feel free to skip this post. 🙂

2/27/2022

2:57 a.m.

“My Brother, the Artist”

Awoke from a dream that seems important enough to get up and write it down. I was one of several children — three or four — of a larger than life mother who seemed to work in the fashion industry.

We were all grown children, but maybe just in our 20’s and early 30’s. The mom was a little like Maye Musk (Elon Musk’s mom), but not quite her. She was pushy. There was some kind of convention going on in what seemed like a really high end department store — maybe Neiman Marcus, or maybe it was an actual convention. There’s more to this part that I don’t quite recall.

The woman/mom had a lot of authority and perks. She gave each of us a credit card sized card — some kind of pass, and we could use this to leave the convention. We needed to hold it up high enough that the guards could see it as we walked out. They might still stop us, but if we dropped her name, it should be alright. Then they tightened security, so we actually needed her with us in order to leave.

One of my brothers looked like Chris Hemsworth (Thor) or his brother (who looks similar but not quite so beefy). The mom kept handing us different things to carry in flamboyant ways. One was a bouquet of hot pink feathers made to look like flowers. This is the only one I remember, but there were more.

The ceilings were really high, and there were glass escalators and wide open space with glass walls looking outside. I went to a mall kind of like this and can’t recall where it was. I think it was in Chicago. Marshall Field Building? I don’t think it has stores anymore, but at one time it looked impressive.

In the dream, there was all this posh stuff, but it felt like a prison because of the guards and because we couldn’t leave without the cards and then, without our overbearing mother. My brother (Chris Hemsworth) started having a nervous breakdown. He said, “I can’t do this anymore” and tried to walk out. This made a scene because the guards wouldn’t let him leave. He didn’t even bother to flash the card. When they asked for it, he said, “I’m out of here” and had a determined, but unaware air about him.

Our mom realized this would cause a huge scene and create stigma for her, so she gathered all of us and said, “Get out your cards. We’re leaving.”

We got them out and lifted them up, but the guards wouldn’t let us leave without first talking to the mom. She convinced them to open the doors and let us out, and this brother ran to the middle of the parking lot, then home. I sensed he was one step away from being institutionalized, that I had one chance to save him from this fate.

When I got to his apartment, he was sitting on a large chair, kind of rocking in fetal position. He didn’t look up when I said his name, but we had had a close relationship all our lives. I knew he was really an artist and that’s why this fake world was so toxic to him.

I said in a very cheery voice, “You did it! You never need to go to that fucking place again. You’re probably banned for life. You did it! You’re free. Now you get to paint.”

He still didn’t respond, so I took one hand and arm and kind of wedged it between his armpit/arm curled around his legs. I shimmied one arm there and the other under his opposite knee, and I gave him a ridiculous hug. I started crying, empathing with him and trying to set a tone where he could have an emotional release. He was so checked out, just numb.

I hugged him tight and said again, “You did it. You never have to go to that fucking place again. You’re free.” That fucking place meant Northwestern University and academia. “They’ll never let you in again, and that’s a good thing. You can paint now.” I mentally sent him telepathic images of his artwork — past and future. He didn’t overtly respond, but I felt him engage a little when he saw the future paintings.

I continued to hug him and rocked with him as I said, “I’m proud of you. So proud of you because you did it. None of us wants to be in that prison. That fucking place is insane. You’re the sane one. You! You’re the sane one. Don’t ever let them tell you otherwise.”

I knew I needed to get him to paint again. If he was at work on a masterpiece when the people came to his place, instead of sitting in fetal position on a chair and rocking himself with vacant eyes — if he was engaged as an artist, I could keep the doctors at bay. If they saw him like this, in the chair, they would lock him up for the rest of his life. I wouldn’t be able to save him, and they would medicate him so far that he would never be able to find himself.

I knew all this but knew I couldn’t alarm him. The key was for him to realize he was an artist — that this was the reason he couldn’t play the game anymore. This was why he walked out — not because he was insane. An inspired artist has leeway. If he was hard at work when they got here, I could explain that he had had a sudden inspiration — “You know how artists are” — and that his abrupt leave taking was inspired, not crazy. Also that they needed to go, to stop interrupting him.

I wanted him to be painting like a mad artist when they arrived to take him away. Over and over I kept telling him from my heart, “I’m proud of you. So proud of you for walking away. You never need to go to that fucking place again. I love you. I’m so proud of you for leaving.”

As I said these things, I kept sending telepathic visions of his future paintings. At some point, he turned his head and looked at me. I said, “You have it all. The looks, the body. Oh, that probably sounds weird given that you’re my brother, but seriously, you’ve got it. Besides the talent — which you have in spades — you’ve got ‘it.’ You’re the real deal. You can do this.”

He looked at me again and asked, “Really?” He smiled through tears and looked a little dazed, but on the wonder side of dazed instead of the ashamed and overwhelmed side.

“Yes,” I said, “Yes.”

He hugged me back, and I knew that he would paint again. He was already a great artist, but now I knew that he would fulfill that calling. By the time the would-be institutionalizers arrived, he was hard at work on a giant mural. I shooed them away and said, “Get out of here. Leave. You can’t disrupt his genius. Can’t you see he’s painting?! Artists need to take their inspiration as it comes. Get out of here. Stop trying to interrupt his work.”

I knew my brother and I would live happily ever after because he would keep painting murals, and I could live with him away from our awful mother. She would never find us here. She didn’t even know where it was, and she couldn’t get here. We were free.

END of dream journal.

I shared this dream with a friend who commented on its cinematic qualities. I replied:

Yes, I also think it speaks to humanity in general. The people trying to foment world war are unable to create such things without a collective reality buy-in. Narrative is VERY powerful. Imagination is powerful. When enough people walk away from the crazy, reality will tip to something more beautiful and creative. I feel we are on the cusp of that. 

If you haven’t read the March 2 ~ New Moon in Pisces post, it flowed through me in one fast burst after I recorded this dream. You can read it here.

March 2, 2022 ~ New Moon in Pisces

My March 2022 Forecast shared:

March 2 New Moon in Pisces, 12:34 p.m. Eastern time. This New Moon in the most spiritual sign of the zodiac occurs during the quadruple whammy, destiny level re-alignment involving Venus, Mars, and Pluto in Capricorn and the North Node in Taurus. In addition to those powerful players, the Sun, Moon and Jupiter conjunct in Pisces. Jupiter co-rules Pisces with Neptune, and his regal presence expands, uplifts and inspires. Our capacity for faith soars. This is the final New Moon before we begin a new cycle. Do we have the willpower to change? Will we claim our own personal Excalibur and fight the good fight? This is primarily a spiritual battle: “What is impossible with man is possible with God.”

Typical of the more negative expression of Pisces, we’re currently in a miasma of illusions, evocative of Arthurian legend. Never mind the Mists of Avalon: whether through magic, media, or misdirection, the fog of this war is thicker than pea soup.

And yet …

… the higher expression of Pisces opens us to mystical experiences, alternate realities, and the power of prayer.

Ask for clarity to slice through swirling lies, illusions and delusions. Like sorcery, so much of what we’re shown is not real. At least — it isn’t real yet. With enough attention and fear energy, a shimmery thought form acquires more matter. This New Moon reminds us to use willpower not to fall victim to the spell.

According to Dane Rudhyar, the Sabian Symbol for this New Moon degree is:

PHASE 343 (PISCES 13°): AN ANCIENT SWORD, USED IN MANY BATTLES, IS DISPLAYED IN A MUSEUM.

KEYNOTE: Through the effectual use of his will a consecrated man can become a symbol of courage for all those who follow in his footsteps.

Will power is the ultimate spiritual weapon, and its undeviating use is the certification of individual worth. Wherever found, this symbol emphasizes the imperative need to make use of the will in meeting the basic challenges of the inner life as well as outer adversaries.

With this third symbol of the sixty-ninth sequence we see singled out and strongly emphasized the one power in man which is an assurance of victory in the contests generated by social (or occult) processes in which he has become an active part. The individual must use that WILL POWER, yet it is not really his own once he operates at a spiritual level. It is God’s will operating through his mind which focuses its thrusts. It is, occultly speaking, the power of the Brotherhood — the energy of the Whole operating through the one-pointed individual who has made this Whole aware of the need for its use in a particular situation.

I can’t think of a more appropriate symbol for these times. Clear away the cobwebs. Summon your courage and pull that sword out of its rock. Who are you to change the world? Who is any of us?

In terms of Tarot imagery, the collective is moving through the entire Suit of Swords from Ace to Ten. Swords represent the mental realm — both its power and weakness. Briefly:

Ace of Swords: The essence of the mental realm. Pure thought form. A great idea. Success. Focused will. Birth of a great child.

Two of Swords: A difficult choice. Blindfolded and stuck between two evils and a stormy sea. Pay attention to “the still, small voice.” You can succeed even in these difficult circumstances.

Three of Swords: Misery. Break up. End of a relationship — or end of the way we think about a relationship.

Four of Swords: Retreat. A need to rest and recharge. Retire from the world’s distractions so you can refocus on something better.

Five of Swords: Law of Attraction is in effect. If you get your thoughts focused in the right direction for you, outer reality shifts. It looks like you got a lucky break without “doing” anything, but looks deceive. By focusing your mind, you manifested (or can manifest) that “lucky break.”

Six of Swords: Safe passage. An invisible guide steers the raft. The shore is within sight.

Seven of Swords: Lies, deceit, but also discretion, subterfuge for a higher purpose. Keep your plans close to your vest. “To know, to will, to dare, to keep silent.

Eight of Swords: Blindfolded and unable to see your way forward. The mental realm is handicapped, but you can still feel your way forward by paying attention to your feet, to the physical and emotional realms. Comparable to the first trimester in pregnancy. Pay attention to cravings and aversions that protect the unseen, growing baby. When you can’t see your way forward, get back in touch with your instincts.

Nine of Swords: Awakening from the nightmare. Seeing horrors and then realizing these were illusions. You’ve been living through a bad dream. Unplugging from the Matrix.

Ten of Swords: “It’s always darkest before dawn.” “Things are even worse than you thought,” but also, “A new day dawns.” When we reach the Ten, we’ve already moved through the cycle of Swords. Old thoughts, filters, expectations, and attitudes fall away so that we can recognize and receive something fresh and new. Brighter days lie ahead.

Having reached a dead end, it’s time to face the rising Sun and reclaim our Ace of Swords:

Pam Gregory ~ Thoughts in December 2021

This sharing from Pam Gregory expresses so many of the things I’ve sensed about current and coming energies. Plus, I find her voice so relaxing. 🙂
