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 Old and outdated patterns of behavior cause limitations.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.

Dana Mrkich ~ Sun Flares

Dana Mrkich ~ Sun Flares

danaMrkichThe sun is flaring faster than I can keep up! The expected strong one today happened around 45 min after my last post coming in at a M9 ranking which is the next one down from an X flare. It was followed by another M class a few hours later. 

This week it has energetically felt like the Earth is a swaying ship riding some pretty mighty waves (so far 1 X class, 8 M class and some pretty high C class since Sunday). Everyone is holding onto the railings with that feeling of: “Woah, woah, here comes another one, woah another one up ahead, hold on everyone!” 

We’ve had physical symptoms like headaches, restlessness, adrenalin, heart palpitations, some people can’t sleep, some are sleeping more than usual. We’ve had emotional releases: old anger, grief, sadness, and deep gratitude. We’ve had spiritual and mental shifts: huge insights around old patterns and feeling yourself letting go of them finally, increased awareness around whatever you most need to be aware of, vivid dreams and ancient memories are all coming up. 

Whatever you are going through, be gentle with yourself. There is no right way to be feeling. Your body and soul are receiving and experiencing these energies in the best way for you. Trust. You might need to let go of some plans whether little ones in your diary for today, or bigger ones as your soul re-directs you and re-balances you. You might do these things later or not at all. We have to let go of our ego-mind now, of our need to control and to know everything. It is time to trust our soul, our heart and our feelings. 

While the ego-mind or some other inner hard task-master rattles off your to do list, it’s time to say, “actually you know what, I feel like not doing that today, I feel like doing this instead”. We are also being called to let go of controlling other people. Often when we do that it is a way of saying: “if you do this, it will make me feel better.” You are responsible for you feeling better. 

Step away from your computer and devices if you are on them all day. Breathe. Go for a walk. Get out in nature. Eat good food and drink plenty of water. Dark chocolate works for me, as did lemon in my water today.  Do what makes you feel good. 

Jax, (our nearly 3 year old) helped me make mocha/vanilla shortbread twists today for our friend Sam’s wake tomorrow. Sam loved coffee, and so in went the coffee and I had to have a cup continually next to me while we made them. So there I am sipping my lemon water, alternating with sips of coffee! He was a man full of life, and I can’t remember a time with him when he wasn’t laughing and talking to anyone who would listen. He would be the first to say: if you feel like a coffee, have a coffee!!! 

What a week, and it’s only Wednesday!! How are you feeling?

Thanks, G!

In Case You Wondered …

No, it’s not just you.

A lot of people really are going bonkers right now, and even if they manage to keep it together upstairs, people’s bodies are making up for that apparent sanity by manifesting all sorts of crazy symptoms and outbursts. If you work in a healing capacity and you’ve received emergency phone calls, emails, texts and various other requests or demands for help, no, it’s not just you. If your calendar has so many things crossed out, added in and rearranged that you can only write in the margins, no, it’s not just you. If you’ve lost a cat, objects, friends and/or your mind, no it’s not just you.

Mercury’s Retrograde; we’ve got unknown planetary and other things pulling on Earth’s magnetic field; and in general, life’s a bit wild right now. Learn to surf those waves, because we’ve entered a period of chaos. I am personally doing fine after a nice autumn walk, fresh green juice, restorative music, and time on the BioMat with a Still Point Inducer, followed by copious grounding snacks. Then again, I’m a Gemini, so I kind of thrive on chaos. 😉

If you feel less excited about these turbulent times, then maybe it will help to know you’re not alone. Reach out for human support if you need it, and remember that if you’re doing spiritual work in the world, then you also have a perfectly legitimate right to request and accept spiritual support. Ask and you shall receive — unless this happens to be one of those times specially designed to prove to you your own strength. 🙂 Even if that’s the case, though, you can  expect your hidden strength to reveal itself in surprising and satisfying ways.

Regarding the Peanut Gallery — the doubters, the pokers, the prodders, the trick-or-treaters? Yep, they’re out early this year, ringing your emotional bells, demanding attention, threatening to trick you if you don’t provide exactly the treats they want. No, it’s not just you. I’m hearing from others and have experienced this myself. Be kind. People are struggling right now, and they feel increasingly off-kilter and ungrounded. It seems to be most intensely affecting some of the most usually “together” folks. If even the rock solid ones are struggling, then just imagine how people who don’t normally have it together are feeling.

A few other related tidbits that came through in sessions today:

Regarding ley line work and the fact that Masonic Temples, wifi towers and other not-so-positive things have been built on ley lines and their intersecting power points:

No, you don’t need to travel all over the world to find an old ley line and reactivate it. Work wherever you are. Connect with and love the land beneath your own two feet. Haven’t you heard? The North Pole is on the move. What Colette of Bealtaine Cottage calls “The Great Creatrix” is, indeed, radically reorganizing herself. That ongoing pole shift affects the ley lines, too. New intersections and sacred paths and points will arise where individuals have loved and nurtured the land back to health or where people (and there are many of you) have felt called to act as guardians of already beautiful power spots. All land is sacred.

ALL of it.

The Sacred Feminine will aid this process of activation and reactivation. Earth, Air, Water, Fire and Spirit: Five Sacred Things. Terra has greater wisdom and resources than most people imagine. We just need to show up and do our part, however small or large that seems. And we are not alone. Not on our planet, not in this galaxy, and not even in our own challenges. Instead of isolating, let’s band together. “Many hands make light work.”

Speaking of the Sacred Feminine, if you’re working to release this vital, creative energy into the falling patriarchal empire, then guess what? You don’t need to go about it via the old, patriarchal means. Seriously, why would you do that? Why would you try to fit this wonderfully emerging, wild, voluptuously abundant, unstoppable Sacred Feminine Force of Nature into tighty-whitey’s, neckties, button down shirts and three-piece suits? If you just realized you’re trying to do that, then please feel free to join the belly laughing Earth Mama and her attendant faeries playing tickle monster with you, you silly goose. It’s time to flow, baby, flow. (Drilling is so 2008.)

One client today said, “But it’s scary to live a magical life in a culture that doesn’t honor or support that.”

The sudden force of my reply surprised us both:

“About that ‘scary’ magical life … you mark my words:  The days are coming when it will be far scarier not to live a magical life than to live one. The patriarchy is dying. Why would you put your faith in something that’s already at death’s door? Something that has already proven itself to be a completely unsustainable wreck? Especially when your own natural path really is the magical, synchronous, sacred path! I don’t know exactly when, but mark my words, the days are coming when living anything but a magical life will be terrifying, so you might as well get used to it. Start now and enjoy the benefits. As you continue, you’ll create new pathways for others to travel when all the old roads crumble.”

We covered more today — much more — but I need to go back to my regularly scheduled rejuvenation. I’ll leave you with some Hildegard, who was kind enough to join me earlier on the BioMat:

Fare thee well upon the journey. This, too, shall pass.

Ann Kreilkamp ~ Do What Is Yours To Do

This post shares an excerpt of Ann Kreilkamp’s extended commentary on various writers’ recent articles, but I love Ann’s riff even more than the articles that inspired it:

 

The energies are rising. We can feel it all around us. More importantly, we can feel it in ourselves.

Keep going. What is yours to do? Do that, whether it be inside you, in your household, your yard, your block, your neighborhood, your community. It’s YOURS. No one else can do what you came here to do.

But, you whine, “How do I know what I’m supposed to do?”

Here’s how. Do that first thing, the one that nags at you; the one you’ve been putting off as unrealistic and impossible, or just “Too hard; it would upset too many people, too many habits, too many systems. My security, and that of my family, would be at risk. Just can’t.”

Well, then,  so why does it still keep following you around? Just do it. The impossible has a way of morphing into miracle. I know. I’ve been there. At this point, when the momentum for doing that first thing — and it may be infinitesimally small and intensely potent, both! — has ignited your aliveness, then the next thing you’re to do will show itself! Do that, and then the next, on and on. Pay attention to synchronicities, dreams, chance remarks. Yes, pay attention to the miraculous unfolding of your unique life!

Don’t worry about results. Or others’ views of you. Instead, demonstrate, by your own unflinching integrity, your willingness to show up and be counted; demonstrate how, when you do empower yourself, no bogey man will grab you and slit your throat. Or, maybe he will! After all, it’s Halloween time, and zombies are all around us. But YOU ARE NOT A ZOMBIE. Right? Prove it. Prove it to yourself.

If you do not find your voice, and if your voice does not call out it’s intention and act upon it, then there’s a hole in the universe where you’re supposed to be.

OCTOBER 2014 SPECIALS

$77 Medical Intuitive Sessions

Lots of healing in the works these days! As such, I’ve been “informed” that the first October Special is a Medical Intuitive Session sale to help support people getting over that healing hump.

Medical Intuition is the ability to access information about physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health through reading the energy field around the body. A Medical Intuitive Session decodes the message(s) from soul to body into language your conscious mind can understand and begin to address. (It is not meant to replace traditional medical treatment, but rather to empower your healing via whatever modality you ultimately choose.) Medical Intuitive Readings are normally $175 per hour or $90 per half hour.

Medical Intuitive sessions purchased today through 10/31/14, will be discounted to $77 (13% off) per half hour, which can be doubled or tripled for longer sessions.

Intuitive Preparedness Check-In

This is a brand new offering based on many comments, questions and private emails requesting my take on the question “What can I do right now?”  — for specific individuals, rather than general guidelines and suggestions. With so many people feeling the structures and safety nets of the old world slip away, clients, friends and blog readers continue to voice concerns that preparedness strategies seem too overwhelming even to contemplate, let alone implement.

This hour session gives you access to my own intuitive scan of what areas of focus will provide you the greatest payback and sense of abundance, peace and security, with the least amount of resistance. Those looking to make larger lifestyle shifts can ask me to scan various lifestyle, location and/or community options to see which ones fit best with your vibration and heart’s desires. You can also use our time together to discuss energetic/magickal protection and manifestation tools and techniques, along with troubleshooting your most pressing concerns in various areas of life, including finances, food security, faith/spirituality/soul nurturing, relationships and/or land.

I feel so strongly about helping people take steps from fear, denial and overwhelm into abundance, joy and freedom, that I’m keeping this pricing a simple $123. As Tolkien said, “Little by little, one travels far.”

Please contact me if you’d like to sign up for one or both of these specials. (Offers valid if paid on or before Halloween 2014.)

Oracle Report ~ Wednesday, October 15, 2014

Today’s report from Laura Walker brings more confirmation of this Dickensian energy:

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to heaven, we were all going direct the other way – in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.” (Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities)

I might, instead, call it, “A Tale of Two Realities,” and I’m not surprised to find Eris as a key figure today. The energies feel simultaneously very dense and yet fluid and light, as well. We decide what we do with these energies.

Oracle Report ~ Wednesday, October 15, 2014

 

Third Quarter Moon in Cancer: take personal responsibility

Skill: yield to the feminine energy

Negative Imprint: control, unhappiness, dissatisfaction, hopelessness, suicidal, genocidal, negative rituals

Positive Imprint: mystery, happiness, wisdom, freedom, truth, hope, the good kind of anticipation, alchemy

The Goddess of the Earth meets up with the energy of rebirth today, as the Earth makes conjunction with the planet Eris.  Gaia Sophia, the Goddess Who Is The Earth, blesses us with a release from the old ways and opens a gateway into the new ways.

The archetypal energy of Eris is primarily concerned with freedom from controls and unification of the fragmented or divided parts of ourselves.  She seeks to free our minds and meld us into wholeness.  She helps us integrate our shadow sides, where wells of personal power are bound by fears.  She brings darkness to light.

It is a mystical day in that Sophia’s hand reaches up from the ground to lift us higher.  She takes us above things today.  This enables us to have a better view and a better sight line of the future.  The energy of destiny is still very much present, as is the ability to transcend the past.

The Sabian symbol for the degree of the Earth and Eris today is “a woman in pastel colors carrying a heavy and valuable but veiled load.”  In other words, a Trojan Horse or a great heist.

From the vantage point of the energetics today, we should get a much better idea about the Trojan Horse or great heist that is being enacted upon humanity.  Is what is hidden inside a package that looks like “abandoned borders” and “the brink of possible viral pandemic” a monstrous new system of control via global economics and banking?  This may seem US-specific, but the plan requires that the US must fall.  This will not happen no matter how far things break down, but the plan is underway.  I will discuss this more in a new audio in the next few days.  For today, watch the forward movement and see inside the Trojan Horse.

Eris energy also has a way of bringing truth to those who need it most but can hear it least.  If a compulsion to say something comes over you, try to interrupt the circuit and give it some thought first.  This is very difficult to do because Eris energy cannot be contained, but we can moderate the force of the “apples of discord” that we lob.  (Eris’ Apple of Discord is what launched the Trojan War in the first place!)  Mars, Eris’ fiery twin brother, is in trine, adding even more impulsivity.  Remember also that Mercury is retrograde, which naturally leans toward miscommunication.  A tip: commanding is better than demanding.

Eris energy brings revelations and awakenings of hidden talents.  I’ve talked about this a few times this month, but the energy for this is very strong today, so if a hidden part of you that seeks freedom or expression has not revealed itself to you yet, today is another day.  Focus on your HAPPINESS and it will find its way up.

Venus will also be discharging the energy of Eris, bringing the element of relationships into focus.  Venus and Eris are sisters and symbolize the unification of the light and dark parts of ourselves.  This day is heavily laden with energy to unify ourselves – to bring back the parts that linger in shadow in alien lands.  Turn your back on whatever haunts you or whatever is keeping you lost or hidden.  When we do this, we disempower the fear.  Those haunted, lost, and hidden parts of ourselves can then come right back to us.

Be aware that whenever Eris energy is involved, there are usually two sides to things.  Two sides emerge.  Just like a Trojan Horse seems to be one thing but turns out to be another.  So don’t judge things too fast.  Also keep in mind that Eris energy is Black Moon energy – they are the same thing.  So people will be projecting their own fears onto others through nagging, outbursts, conflict, and attempts to emotionally manipulate.  See through it.

Sophia lifts us up today.  Her touch feels like home.  Ultimately, the Eris energy is the Mother Energy.  It nurtures us, but it also teaches us.  We learn best in environments where we are comfortable.  Let go of the controls today and let her lift you to another place.  The Sun will rise again tomorrow, but in a different place and space.  Today, it’s Sophia and Eris’ place and space, and we yield.

Thank you for supporting the Oracle Report. Blessings to all!

Oracle Report ~ Tuesday, October 7, 2014

Another spot on Oracle Report I feel called to share today. The animals really are helping us out!

Oracle Report ~ Tuesday, October 7, 2014

Gibbous Moon in Aries: trust

Skill: understand that changes for the best are afoot today

Negative Imprint: repeating negative patterns, underestimating ourselves or others, dullness, gullible, infantile behavior, miscommunication, shooting off, lost in details or mind loops, resisting changes

Positive Imprint: cosmic rhythms, flexibility, hope, shields, rising above, rebirth, gaining wisdom, clarity, alchemy, rest, calm, messages, stories, security, comfort, accepting changes

Uranus rules the energy today, as the Sun makes exact opposition to it at 4:38 pm ET/8:38 pm UT. We can expect the unexpected all day long. Uranus brings the power of lightning strikes of change, surprise, and sometimes shock. Uranus works swiftly, making our heads spin, and often leaving us wondering what happened.

But there is a beauty to Uranus that puts us where we need to be no matter what. So if you experience a dramatic change, rejection, or revelation, it is a great gain – not a loss. We can practice the art of trust with Uranus because it always works for the good (though most of the time it is very hard to do this because of the shocking nature of Uranus).

Today’s energy also tends to produce the feeling that we are back at the beginning or doing the same thing (making the same “mistake?”) all over again. The Sun is at the degree of “circular paths” so we feel like we are going around and around and maybe getting nowhere. Old habits often surface with this energy.

We should remember that even if we feel back where we started, truly we are not because we have gained wisdom and experience from the journey, even if it feels circular. We want to spiral UP, not round and round. This requires that we analyze our pattern and choose to do things a different way. Remember that things are changing dramatically this month. A big shift is on. Accept the changes that are happening for you, knowing that they are for your highest and best purposes.

When we spiral up we have a new perspective. We are able to see how things better fit together and relate. There is a high degree of alchemy in today’s energy which allows us to remix and rearrange elements of our lives so that they are more fulfilling. Mix it up today.

Pay close attention to any symbols that jump out at you for recognition. Our minds are prone to scan for symbols that will relate messages, insight, and information to clarify something. Animals symbolize various things also. I always recommend Ted Andrews’ book Animal Speak for the best interpretation of shamanic understanding of animals and their “medicine.”

Our journey this month is very much a mystery and we are led farther along it today. We are guided on this journey and there is much to see, as a lot is happening on the way to today’s destination. The destination, by day’s end, is insight or revelation. It’s the eve of the Red/Blood Moon which brings the ability to see through to the truth of matters. Be brave and look at what is being shown to you. Don’t turn away. You are a strong spiritual warrior on the path of wisdom. We aim to know.

We have ample protection and shielding in place today, but we remain vigilant to the desperate attempts of the new (unnatural) world order as their best-laid plans are crumbling before their eyes. They know they have lost control so they will continue to lash out. Tomorrow’s Full Moon and October 13-15 (when the Sun will oppose the Eris Point and Eris) are the days that are highlighted for hijinks by the minions of the Archons.

It’s an electrifying day today with the power of Uranus and the Sun on the eve of a total lunar eclipse. What is in shadow? What is revealed? What is alchemized? What is beginning? We gain wisdom of these things today. It’s a good day to be a wise owl.

Thank you for supporting the Oracle Report. Blessings to all!
