Mar 8, 2011 – Mardi Gras – Celebrate Clear Intention!

Today is a poignant day for communications.  The DARK MOON conjuncts MERCURY at 8:37 am pdt, then goes Void of Course.  There may be communications about death, changes, or truths that need to be spoken that are about things that don’t work.

We are in the last day of a lunar cycle before a NEW MOON SOLAR ECLIPSE.  MOON is between Taurus and Gemini all day, until moving into GEMINI at 4:56 pm pdt.  An hour later, this waning DARK MOON fresh into GEMINI SQUARES NEPTUNE in PISCES.  This is deeply watery and could feel confusing, or uncomfortable–its a low point emotionally.  We might even feel depressed!  This could be one of the least comfortable days/nights in the year.  So if you are still here, reading this, CELEBRATE!  Even if it doesn’t feel so comfortable, we’ve made it this far and its something to be grateful for and to celebrate, because we (humanity) are in the midst of quite a “rite of passage,” in these next few years and we’re “all in this together.”  We are beginning a process of de-isolating ourselves.  Wherever we’ve been isolating ourselves in our “private suffering,” we’re about to share these parts with others, to receive the responding support.  Its good to meditate on what this isolated part of us is and how we might share it, to open up the isolated part, which causes us to decay in that place at a time like this.

Today is a day for DEEP INNER MAGIC, more than OUTER WORK.

SOLAR ECLIPSE
The New Moon Solar Eclipse, on June 1st is at 10 degrees of Gemini.  It is related to our communications, our thoughts, and our brother-sister relations (the people with whom we most think about and communicate with).  The way in which we relate and communicate with each other or even the way in which we “see” each other, is up for DEATH and REBIRTH. Each of us has very deep “eclipse work” on our plate right now and today is a day to sit deeply with what is dying and take the time to receive and consider NEW VISIONS.  Even if we cannot yet see our new world, or even see how we will bring it into form, we must prepare to see it, and prepare to build it–if we haven’t already begun this task, we are called to begin with these three eclipses.  When we focus on our communications for a new world, we streamline our energy to flow in alignment with cosmic forces, and therefore protect ourselves from the incoming forces of Death and Destruction of the old or outdated, at this time.

If we want to initiate the highest sides of this eclipse, we can initiate a lens of gratitude, innocence, trust, light-heartedness, seeking of beauty and empowering others, speaking truth in ways that uplift, rather than critisize.  For example: I can be in paradise and go into a cave and look at a rotting animal and speak “the truth” about how bad the rotting animal is in the cave, or i can turn myself around and look at the beauty and wonder in the waterfall and the bird flying overhead and speak “the truth” about these beauties.  (both are truthful)  It is time for us to become wise enough to constantly choose the bird and the sky over the rotting dead animal in the cave.  It is time to communicate about new forms, new systems, new infrastructures to uphold new ways of living and working, that work for all of us. What is lost or dying needs to be let go of, to make way for the new.

This solar eclipse at 2:03 pm pdt on June 1, is connected with a transformation in how we work, revealed by a trine with SATURN, and a sextile with CHANGE AGENT URANUS.  Our culture’s way of “making a living,” and the way in which we live, are not working.  Our work, related to money and authentic needs versus what we “think” we need to live are up for revision. These next THREE ECLIPSES IN A ROW are going to send our “life’s work,” and LIFE, into a catharsis that will ultimately lead us to a much more integrated and fulfilled life and life’s work, but the journey of getting there may be rocky and filled with disappointments (things being eclipsed in one way or another) before the transformation is complete.  We will need to let go of or change so many of our “unexamined assumptions,” about what we actually need and how we need to live with each other.  We all need to redesign our lives to work better for all of us and these next two months are jumpstartear intention to “hold space for them to come to us,” is the energy of today, as we prepare for the magical lightning power of MERCURY CONJUNCT URANUS wednesday morning. This magical Mercury conjunct Uranus connects our thoughts directly to the invisible world.  This is communications activation and manifestation at its highest potential.  Thoughts words and actions in this time are highly impactful on the future!

Moon is in simple pleasures TAURUS today for Mardi Gras Tuesday!  This earth moon walks toward a MOON TRINE PLUTO late tonight at 12:26 am pst.  MOON SQUARES VENUS in the middle of the night while we are sleeping.  In the dreamtime, we are working through money tension, love tension &/or women-to-women tension.

May 30, 2011 – Relationship Sorting

MOON in sensual, food sharing Taurus will conjunct both MARS (inner masculine) and VENUS (inner feminine) throughout the course of the day!  In the morning, at 10:43 am, MOON conjuncts MARS and we dance our masculine self into more understanding.

By the evening, at 6:23 pm, pdt, we are dancing our personal moon with our personal VENUS and we go to the bottom of our roots of love or creativity, or money (or all of the above).  We can get to the bottom of our current situation, if we follow our feelings!!

This sensual moon, WANING toward a SOLAR ECLIPSE, is releasing and letting go of old outdated sensual practices. We are preparing our vessels for New Sensual Practices that are healthier and more whole!  We are also preparing to meet little deaths that bring us into more humilty and truth.

 

Mar. 5, 2011 – New Magic Begins

We rise this morning after a Fiery and expansive night.  The MOON is freshly into Taurus this morning, grounding us.  This grounding MOON is in its last few days of releasing and letting go energy.

MOON sextiles NEPTUNE at 7:52 am pdt, watering our earth selves, rinsing away our tears.  We can sing today for the whole earth.  We can water our prayers with extra heart juices that will uphold humanity on earth at a time when we all hang in the balance between heaven and hell, collectively chosen.  What will we create?

MOON moves toward a trine with PLUTO in Capricorn this evening at 7:46 pm pdt.  Our personal self is grounding down with the cosmic dirt and soul.  As the day progresses we go deep down into the waning dark moon.  Our toes are digging in the dirt of our shadows, reminding us that it takes the darkness, the sadness, and all the wounded places to make us more whole.  We can accept and hold space for our grief, tears, depression and contraction, knowing it is the season of the dark moon–this too will pass, and for now, is part of the alchemy of being alive.  There is a time for darkness and that time is now.  Enjoy your “down time.”

We are within three days of a NEW MOON SOLAR ECLIPSE.  The waning end of cycle energy is very unstable and potentially volatile.  Many things will be “eclipsed.” Its good to let go and be grateful we didn’t lose even more.  If something falls down or falls away, we know it is being pulled away by this super cosmic purification energy, killing off unneeded egoic attachments, ungrounded assumptions and impurely motivated projects.  This is not a good time to sign contracts or initiate important things, esilled with MAGIC!  Our personal feeling MOON conjuncts MERCURY, “The Magician,” and/or “the communicator.”  Mercury is touching into the orb of its visit with Uranus, field of invisible world potential.  This powerful conjunction for magical manifestation happens on Wednesday.  We are entering a field of possibility that is profoundly fertile.  Dream, Think, Speak, only that which we choose to manifest.  This is a time to be impeccable with intention, thought and word, for the UNIVERSE is LISTENING with fertility and full receptivity.

MOON conjuncts URANUS at 8:34 pm, new beginnings sometimes happen like a star trek phaser–all the sudden, there they are–new seeds!  The invisible world is whispering in our ears tonight.  Uranus at the last degree of the zodiac is preparing to leap into the next wave of human spiritual unfoldment.  We likely will not need the old religions anymore.  Uranus about to cross into Aries calls humanity into a NEW SPIRITUAL PATH, a higher spiral on our wheel up.  Here we can create new spiritual forms that will carry us into our future.

The ancestors, our spirit guides and our own thoughts are up for lightning striking revelatory experiences this evening and this week, as Moon, Mercury and Uranus alchemize together in us through the lunar cycle.  In the middle of the cycle, Uranus will make its Pisces to Aries Spiritual Shift.

TONIGHT, The MOON will cross into ARIES at 9:14 pm, taking the same journey that Uranus will take on March 11th.  Tonight we may have a taste of the “magic that is afoot,” as we step into one of the more (invisible-world-communications-exalted) lunar creation cycles of our year!”

URANUS INTO ARIES: March 11, 2011 Uranus crosses our geometric life-giving point of beginning, our dawn, sunrise point.   We can celebrate the end of the last 170 years of human spiritual evolution and relationship with “invisible forces.”  On March 11th, Humanity has a new beginning, in how it relates to its “invisible fabric of life, that upholds us.”  How would we like to relate to the Divine in this next 170 year spiritual revolution? We could become highly telepathic.  We could all the sudden, “know things.”  We may develop skills connected to telepathic senses that we didn’t have before. There is a new energy coming, how will we focus it?

“If lightning is going to strike, where in our lives would we like it to strike?”–(paraphrased)Caroline Casey, from “Making the GOds Work For YOu.”  (best astrology book–highly recommend!)

 

May 29, 2011 – Watering Earth Prayers

We rise this morning after a Fiery and expansive night.  The MOON is freshly into Taurus this morning, grounding us.  This grounding MOON is in its last few days of releasing and letting go energy.

MOON sextiles NEPTUNE at 7:52 am pdt, watering our earth selves, rinsing away our tears.  We can sing today for the whole earth.  We can water our prayers with extra heart juices that will uphold humanity on earth at a time when we all hang in the balance between heaven and hell, collectively chosen.  What will we create?

MOON moves toward a trine with PLUTO in Capricorn this evening at 7:46 pm pdt.  Our personal self is grounding down with the cosmic dirt and soul.  As the day progresses we go deep down into the waning dark moon.  Our toes are digging in the dirt of our shadows, reminding us that it takes the darkness, the sadness, and all the wounded places to make us more whole.  We can accept and hold space for our grief, tears, depression and contraction, knowing it is the season of the dark moon–this too will pass, and for now, is part of the alchemy of being alive.  There is a time for darkness and that time is now.  Enjoy your “down time.”

We are within three days of a NEW MOON SOLAR ECLIPSE.  The waning end of cycle energy is very unstable and potentially volatile.  Many things will be “eclipsed.” Its good to let go and be grateful we didn’t lose even more.  If something falls down or falls away, we know it is being pulled away by this super cosmic purification energy, killing off unneeded egoic attachments, ungrounded assumptions and impurely motivated projects.  This is not a good time to sign contracts or initiate important things, especially these three days before and ten days after the Solar Eclipse.  The whole months of June and July are inside of an eclipse field and volatile unstable times–not great for planning or new initiations.

Each of us will have an “eclipse piece of work.”  We may already know what it is.  It could be a healing or spiritual crisis, or some kind of a loss that sends us into a piece of inner work.  We will know what our “eclipse work” is in the next few days, if we don’t already know what it is!  The energy of an eclipse field can be harsh or intense feeling if we are not prepared, not paying attention or not in our power.  These are jedi days to spend each morning centering into full attention and full preparation for the day ahead.  Prayers for the world and all fault lines.
