January 4, 2013 – Morning Catharsis – Grunge Day

This morning we come into the day with a fire-power MARS in Capricorn, TRINE MOON in Virgo at 7:31 am, pst.  This MOON is a waning half moon now in the sky.   MARS gives us the energy to act in the areas that need action.

We’re crossing into the lower energy side of this eclipse cycle. We will now purify and release everything that needs purifying and releasing. This includes sending out and completing everything that our flowers need to seed this cycle.

MOON SEXTILE VENUS in the afternoon at 1:54 pm, pst gives the ability to ground abundance and art in our world. MOON VENUS magic offers grace, abundance love and pleasure!  This is a moment tients of a good catharsis. This may be the early days of January 2013 but it is right in the middle of a giant “Cultural Breakdown.” Our culture is in a four year breakdown, over the course of URANUS SQUARE PLUTO through 2015/1016.  This cultural breakdown began in 2010 or 2011, in the most intense part of its demise. The Old World, the last 5,000 year era, and the last archetypal era of culture is breaking down. Meanwhile new culture sprouts amidst the decaying rubble of the past.

MOON OPPOSITE URANUS, SQUARE MERCURY, TRINE JUPITER, TRINE MARS and SQUARE PLUTO all by 10:10 am pST. This is enough aspects to push through climb up any mountain, or overcome any obstacle–however–there is work involved.

MARS TRINE JUPITER and MERCURY SEXTILE CHIRON at dawn tell us this is not an ordinary day, but a special kind of grunge day!  It is a day of radical healing communications and extra pushes of activity, on behalf of the transitions we are amidst.

SUN SQUARE MOON at 7:58 pm, pst brings us to the DARK WANING side of the lunar cycle, unwinding, releasing the old, relaxing into the deep dark silent place.

May our hard work be rich and filled with satisfaction today and all the days of our transition from old to new world.

December 2 – 30, 2012 – Rapid Change and Acceleration Period

We have entered a period of intense and rapid change and acceleration.

As an author of this blog, it has been something i write each morning, or the night before the day the blog is about, sharing the “energy of the day ahead.” This eclipse period, with the mercury retrograde, has brought circumstances through which i have not been able to maintain this practice after two years of maintaining it–it finally broke down in the last week, when for the first time in two years, i didn’t write for several days in a row, due to rapid changes, rain, causing power outages, internet black-outs due to rain, etc.  I have also had my own life circumstances, “amped up,” and going through rapid changes. Feeling this quality of energy, i cannot promise WHEN i will be able to write for the next month at least!! I will write when i can!

Each of us is experiencing our own form of rapid change. It is best to stay present, alert and awake, ready to meet the changes and be fluid enough to adapt, integrate and shift quickly as things change rapidly before us.  Gratitude will protect us.

Although it appears we are working our way through a pathway of people, events and circumstances, truly we are making our way toward our transformation. Our rebirth. For each of us, this transformation will be unique, however, this winter, each of us will be “refined in our own personal awakening alchemy,” through this next period of time.

Nomatter what the astrological aspects for each day are, this period will have a quality of increased and rapid change. If we are surfing well, we will see each ending as an opening into “all possibliity,” and into “the great unknown.”  From this place of unknown, or void, we can create ANYTHING! When something ends, look at what opens and follow the open energy, follow the invitations that feel good. When one door closes, or one situation begins to feel incorrect for our perfect timing, we can quickly change plans and choose the path of most grace. There will always be a path of grace if we look for it, in any situation.

This is a time to pray for the world and pray for and with each other. The moment something is uncomfortable or “doesn’t look good,” in any way, that is a moment to say a prayer, asking for what we would most like to see. This is a time to be clear about what we want, and clear about what we are choosing in each moment.

Here is a secret practice: When something happens that we don’t like, or that is a limitation of any kind, ask ourselves, “Now that this has happened, what could happen next that would be a win, win for everyone, or “How might we bring grace in to this situation,” what might that look like?  How would i most like to see this unfold, if it were up to me?
