New Moon: 6 Taurus 27

Rest and Abide

 

Generally speaking, there is a beautiful simplicity to a new moon in Taurus. It’s a call to steer the body into a comfortable position and rest it long enough for the mind to find its matching harmonious frequency: Here there is no clutter, only blissful sufficiency.

 

Since the new moon in Aries 28 days ago, we’ve been called to stake our claim and take on the proverbial plough harness. We should feel tired and we should heed that feeling. Yet, there’s another reason to pause. Just as we must fit our catnaps or zone out times around the demands of life, we will need contemplative time to consider how our grand plan has had to shapeshift for the hard earth of reality. This just can’t be rushed; the mind’s strategic survival structures need time to get the message that it’s really alright to chill out. And then, whilst snoozing or strolling or staring out the window, a ‘fix’ or a peaceful acceptance can come.

 

And so, generally speaking and regardless of any and all matter hitting the fan, the Universe invites you to rest and abide as much as possible. Continue to pace yourself, too, watching that Mars in Gemini doesn’t scatter your energies all over the place, but diversifies the ways in which you progress towards your target.

Meanwhile, we’ve got a longer cycle coming into its 2nd of three passes: Mercury in conjunction with Uranus in Aries…

 

Time flies when you are swamped, right? Since the turning of the year, many of us have determined where our personal energy is best channeled and begun the necessary networking and bridge-work. We are on our way. We’ve been exposed to different points of view and consciously or not, refined our own perspective. Along the way, we may well have had breakthroughs or surpassed our expectations in a particular area of relating to other/s and, in doing so, were impressed with what ‘çame out’ of us. Yes! We navigated best we could between a rock and a hard place, came out on a new ledge…and watched ourselves transform that position using a combination of our own lessons learned (maintaining flexibility) and fixed gaze on our long term goal/s (holding consistent)…

 

And now, over the course of this week, another cycle is rising – A hardwired sequence of thoughts/behaviors/assumptions/prophecies will be forced to a sudden stop. Somehow, lightning strikes and there is suddenly ‘space’…a split second later, there sits a new thought and it blows our mind. Wow! It’s as if what we finally grasp as being True in one area of our life must also hold to be true in a general life-creed sense; like ripples of evolution in all dimensions.

 

Mercury plus Uranus in Aries = shocking, piercing, penetrating, of high art/craft, progressive, authentic, inspired by something greater than Self, life changing. So, sure, you could shout and scream, attack with a knife or enlist a posse to encircle and crush the enemy camp. Certainly, this isn’t gentle energy and you may well be on the receiving end from someone who probably desperately needs some time out. The bottom line is that this energy is on tap for ALL of us even as we must individually wield it. Let’s be Taurus about it: slow to anger, quick to see that this, too, shall pass. Let’s keep on doing our best to apply these symbolic descriptors towards peaceful co-thriving.

 

Wishing you a magical new moon,

On Cycles

 

Pluto stations retrograde on April 20th opening a tunnel into our approach to the natural cycle of endings and beginnings through September 29. This review may bring to our awareness where we may not be allowing the natural “death” of something to take its course by regenerating in a transformed state. Before change can happen, we need to let go of the old, the tired, the worn out, the dysfunctional. If we can keep everything moving through their natural cycles, we remain constantly refreshed. Pluto’s subtle alchemic process is a quiet, under the radar energetic force that works regardless of how conscious we are of it. The more aware we are, however, the greater traction we may experience in becoming at one with the magical rhythms of the cosmos.  – Gray Crawford (link)

New Moon: 7 Aries 37

Happy New Energy Year!

For all the buzz of springtime, this Aries new moon will probably be a little more sedate than usual on the individual level and I think we can all appreciate that. For weeks now, we’ve been overloaded with personal and macro voltage in this life sector. Recently, as Mars entered Taurus, we began to feel a kind of internal tug of war about where to channel all this buzz but we’re getting acclimated now and that brings a potential softening to this most-driven of energies. A degree of deliberation may suit before we go on conquest…

Many of us now won’t rise to just any old battle cry. It’s going to have to mean a lot; we’ll have to believe it can take us where we want to go. In fact, some of us will be offered or be offering some proof up front and that is a solid way to get attention and be recognised.

Using the theme of the recent Virgo full moon as a framework, contemplate and formulate your new moon wish. These are Action Fire seeds, by the way! What do you want to make happen so much that you are willing – you are happy –  to fight for it to the point of exhaustion? What would you expect to get when you work for a wish like that? Something awesome, that’s for sure. Go For It.

a prosperous new energy year to all!

Astrology is a code that illuminates the timing of both events and issues one must find ways to deal with… there are always cycles within cycles, so that while our minds find it necessary to focus on just one cycle at a time, it is equally important to recognize that any interpretation that only focuses on just one thing must be incomplete…This is important to remember so we are able to maintain a balanced understanding.  – Jim Sher

Growing Your Truth Center

Regarding the battle against suppression, Rappoport concludes, “Anybody who goes after the truth is going to find very positive things happening. It’s not all, ‘Oh, well, I exposed the truth so now there are thousands of people who are after me,’ and so forth. Things are breaking out into a new direction here, and they have been for years because the passing of the ball is happening at a tremendous rate. We’re not the Cold War or the 1930s; our world is different, and so many people are joining, and the movement is becoming a tremendous, positive thing. It’s an invitation to anyone who wants to join the party.”  (Source)

     On Dealing With Systemic Tyrrany

  1. Dont immediately obey.
  2. Dont depend on the institutions. The institutions depend on you.
  3. Love the pursuit of truth.

And a Textbook Manifestation of Uranus in Aries :

Amal Graafstra in Seattle, Washington has implanted himself with an enhancement chip and you can, too. He says, ‘Biohacking is a big umbrella term. It involves everything from hacking DNA and bacteria and people to doing what we’re doing which is essentially not shying away from putting devices into the body to enhance it. They really view the body as a sports utility vehicle for the mind and just like an SUV you can upgrade your body now, too.’ (Source)

Full Moon: 22 Virgo 13

FM virgo 12mar17

On the Art of Refining Our Labor

Virgo is all about practical, real-world service that is rooted in the spirit of All-Oneness Pisces: what we do for another, we actually do for our Self; Kindness to another is truly kindness to one’s self since I am and You are together on this organic rock spinning though the mysteries of shared chemistry and space.

When we think about parental love, it’s so easy to understand – now, think about a world where we could hold on to the truth of sibling’s keeper logic. To serve apparent needs according to the agenda and the trajectory hoped for by the Other and not what we opine as best is a central characteristic of this axis.

 

We are about to adjust our homing signal to somewhat different frequencies and our success will rely upon a clear-eyed unromantic understanding of what we are physically and emotionally capable of sustaining.

 

We’ve recently noted the eclipses and since cycles build on cycles, we can connect some dots here.

In the first half of February, the solar energy of Leo bounced its universal light off of the moon: remember that you are unique. Your inner spark can fuel connections which lead to mutual satisfaction and trust. Leo protects, provides, performs and creates and every one of us has a Leo facet made for taking up these activities. We are encouraged to be thinking along these lines now…

But let’s not forget who we are doing this for, what our audience, tribe, loved one is saying that they want or need from us. In the second half of February, the moon lined up in between us on earth and the sun – and the symbolism sought to return us to the bedrock material of the All-One. The wise mind and the heart will daily calibrate our caretaker spirit to the perspective of those on the receiving end.  It has to be rooted there or we might quickly drown, sinking under a load of self-imposed menial tasks that no one would miss if we just stopped doing them. And that brings us neatly and squarely to today’s full moon in Virgo.

The universe invites you to come to terms with reality as pertains to those you feel connected to now and those people and themes just on the horizon of your world. We are about to adjust our homing signal to somewhat different frequencies and our success will rely upon a clear-eyed unromantic understanding of what we are physically and emotionally capable of sustaining.

Of course, there may be some who we will door-mat for without hesitation – yes, just note well why you choose to serve.Virgo works are all the jobs that have to get done: from paycheck work to errand running, from laundry to sterilising the bathrooms. We may be launching new migrations, projects, classes, family units, careers –  in what ways will we regularly refill our inner wells of fortitude? Let us begin as we intend to go on.

******

The universe has some tips for us:

Whatever tremors and quakes you are experiencing in your Capricorn sector, Pluto is ultimately drilling for you – to hit a rich vein that can serve as a source of sustenance.  If you will keep cleaning away the rubbly junk broken up by the proverbial jack hammer, your daily itinerary, to-do lists and people priorities will literally be that which is still standing/part of your reality over the coming months.

Mars is now in Taurus: dont scatter your energies; Choose a few desires and Lock Focus.   Be the horse that pulls the cart. Conserve energy when possible. Repeat.

Saturn, our Teacher and The Boss, will have us constructing, testing, deconstructing and perfecting our weight-bearing lines from April 6th until August 26th (back from 27’48 to 21’11 Sag and forward again). We can choose to worry about what this may mean for us OR we can SEE and celebrate the synchronicity between the Leo eclipse launch with its first harmonic reply and your upcoming work in the school of life!

There may be concepts or systems that we come to see in the near future we’ve been misunderstanding, persons we’ve misjudged, a stubbornly hard-wired fear or a lie that rears its head between now and August 26th. These experiences contain lessons meant to be APPLIED so that we can forge on with our skills and talents. How cool is that?! When our stress levels rise, we can remember that Time is on our side when we are building for the long haul. We won’t be running late, we’ll be getting it right.

A very satisfying Virgo full moon to you,

weaver

 

 

On being in business: “Its just a very small percentage of your energy being spent on the big picture. Like, you know generally where you are heading for, and the actual path is going to be some sort of zig-zaggy path in that general direction. You try not to deviate too far from the path that you want to be on – but you are going to have to, to some degree.”  – Elon Musk
