April 13, 2013 – Lightness of Being Meets Shadow Material

MOON SEXTILES MERCURY from the end of Taurus, to the end of Pisces, at 5:30 am, pdt, before going into the VOID between Taurus and Gemini.  MERCURy is almost finished with its full Piscean journey, complete with a 3 week MERCURY RETROGRADE cycle inside. We are now fully through that retrograde with wind and unwind time. Today we may look back on the last month or two and see a change in our consciousness.

MOON enters Gemini at 7:13 am, pdt. This airy MOON elicits a light heart, smiling eyes and brotherly sisterly thoughts about each other.

This lightness of being arises after a day of shadows and deep shifting yesterday as PLUTO STATIONED RETROGRADE in Capricorn, TRINE the MOON, and our personal world, calling us, evoking us and inwardly shouting at us to change, change change. Backward, we weave now with our power, unweaving, unwinding, re-evaluating and seeing through our power struggles, calling ourselves into balance from our deepest shadow selves.

MOON in Gemini SQUARE NEPTUNE in Pisces is a mutable corner to cross. We may feel tired, confused, or have a big ocean to swim across. Nomatter what the inconvenience or exhaustion level–we can call in our miracle consciousness and overcome any obstacle with the power of death and rebirth at our finger and toe-tips now.

MERCURY moves from ocean to new birth and fire at 7:37 pm and our mind may gain a “second wind,” from its Piscean state of overwhelm, sleepiness,  and creative rivers so fluid we can hardly put them in form. Our thoughts and beliefs were in flux in watery Pisces, and now in Aries, a childlike wonder at the new is emerging into our consciousness, if we allow it. We are the divine child of spring. We can be a seed, with a concentrated will, to open toward the sunlight and warmth we feel, guiding us to the mystery of the unfolding flower.

We each have a responsibility to flower, may this flowering be filled with our heart’s warmth and the glow of our awakening consciousness.

April 12, 2013 – PLUTO RETROGRADE Phoenix Preparing for Ascension

PLUTO is stationary RETROGRADE today at 12:34 pm, pdt. We are in another revolutionary change period. PLUTO will be RETROGRADE until September 20th, 2013. SATURN and PLUTO are in a mutual reception dance, where each one is now RETROGRADE in the other’s zodiacal sign. SATURN is RETROGRADE in Scorpio (Pluto’s sign) and PLUTO is now RETROGRADE in Capricorn, SATURN’s zodiacal sign!  This is a deep water, earth alchemy. For 2.5 months, these two planets will co-retrograde in mutual reception. This is a time of economic and spiritual reform. Our work, our schools, our spiritual institutions and our law-making body’s are up for death and rebirth, refinement and re-evaluaation. Truths must come out. It is time for deep cleansing of mind, body and soul, and a time of THE TOWER, when our perceptual structure and belief systems can be shattered intentionally to make way for a new lens.

There may be a crisis of faith from within that calls us into radical change and social reformation.

SATURN INCONJUNCT URANUS at 8:29 pm offers an awkward breakthrough and clearing moment. We are clearing the way for the new things that wish to come in. We are resetting and reforming the way we run our lives. the reset phase is awkward and uncomfortable for most people!

May the phoenix be with you!
