New Moon: 8 Aquarius 15

It’s been gratifying to read a lot of articles lately that emphasise the importance of cycles and of remembering that we are always in the midst of several of them at any given time. Even as some parts or persons in life may have us in standby or hibernate mode, this new moon initiates and empowers a cycle of This is Me Taking Progressive Action and here is why:

Mars will triumphantly bound into his home sector of Aries, shaking off an immense amount of heavy debilitating drench just hours after the exact Sun/Moon conjunction. The effect of this move alone cannot be overstated when it comes to how so many of us are feeling. Lethargy , disillusionment, a dispersed and incoherent mentality and even timidity, shame and victimhood will be hard-pressed to maintain a grip on the Self no matter where Aries operates in the mosaic of personhood.

The Sun and Moon are united in Aquarius, associated with both Make-it-Real Saturn and Genius Forerunner Uranus. We can plant the seeds for taking a Giant Leap and land firm footed!

All the planets are moving forward. With just a few exceptions, this is a time for applying these energies to/upon/in tandem with our cosm. Just make a note to keep in mind that virtually ALL of us will be feeling Fired Up and remember the lessons gleaned over the last year concerning how we use our autonomy, knowing the wisdom of limits and the necessity of the co- in co-creative work.

Uranus and Jupiter are in opposition. Gotta be you but you are not an island. Become more diplomatic even as you measure twice and cut once. Also, I note that legalities and endowments/gifts with a string or two attached of one sort or another are coming up a lot. Oppositions are opportunities to integrate via common denominators. If you can’t find any of those (and you checked that twice)…release that space so it’s available. Nature abhors a void so don’t fret about it for even half a minute.

Saturn is enforcing accountability, offering growth through and in spite of pain and a reckoning is due for those who have forgotten why they offered to serve.

Mercury is stepping into Pluto’s parlour. The powers that be have a proclamation, a fabulous upgrade or a termination notice. But first things first: are you the Pluto archetype in any of your various associations? I ask this because a great many people that I speak with have blind spots concerning their power. I sometimes wonder if subconsciously they don’t feel up to the responsibility that comes with it. Either way, if you’ve been feeling any of those descriptors listed in paragraph 2, watch that you don’t unwittingly become the dark side of the Eliminator and miss a brilliant opportunity for a holistic upgrade. ‘Impotent rage wears on you.’ – Jon Stewart

There is grace abounding for those with a will to be aware. First off and most obvious with a new moon is the Space to unify our thoughts and feelings. This is not the general state of affairs for the great majority of us and I am celebrating that union of frequencies particularly. There is grace in Venus in Pisces: she is exalted here and we can choose what we attract to us which automatically edits our mindset and behaviour. Which wolf are you feeding? There is grace in maintaining the status quo in terms of our approach: the marker for our best growth forward remains in flexible yet grounded, wheat from chaff sorted, know-it-by-its-fruits Virgo. As we rise daily to the Challenge – even as we acknowledge there is no map of the terrain – we can use these qualities to advance with as much confidence as is possible in these bizarre times.

Can you hear that rooster crowing? I sure can. 🙂

New Moon: 7 Capricorn 59

 

cypnmdec2016

 

Ruler of the New Moon: Saturn in Sagittarius and your natal Saturn point. What do you want to make real? How much time and energy are you willing to invest?

If initial or first step ‘building blocks’ for a special endeavor begun around the time of the last new moon are showing themselves to be somewhat out of alignment with needs on the ground, avoid extreme thinking. It isn’t really accurate to decide that this spells automatic failure OR that it is ok to paper over the cracks…take your time in all assessments.

If you have a lot of Capricorn/Saturn energy naturally, hang in there! This unsettling space weather will lighten up in the next ten days. Meanwhile, do not believe any voice in your head that tells you you are losing your marbles or that everything is crumbling. Something is bubbling up…and it is not easy to bubble up through concrete-like grey matter!  (try to) Make patience your mantra until your a-ha moment comes.

I, too, am trying to practice what I preach. I have been having troubles with the internet connection, a crashed computer – the only one with Microsoft Word software on it, major household issues and two new in-depth reading requests (besides the subscription work) all at the same time –  oooph!

I understand there are limits to what I can do well. Those limits are there for a reason, whether I understand or agree. I can only commit to flexibility, service and quality within those boundaries. The rest is not about me. This same logic applies for your situations, too. There is a freedom and spaciousness in that, you know. Cool, eh?  🙂

be well,

– weaver

A Message for Sensitive Souls

 

‘…This post is intended to assist those noting a palpable change in their emotional state that cannot be solely attributed to their current experiences and recognize these feelings as such…’

Neptune is in retrograde opposition to the North Node. For all of us. So, for we, the Collective, the way forward is foggy and appears to ‘have no legs’ and certainly no instruction manual. You are someone who feels this more acutely than others.

In addition, the Sun and Mercury are in Scorpio. For all of us. No matter what area of your life is ruled by Scorpio, the Collective is focused on probing and/or fearing the unknown. Many of us intuitively feel we are not well equipped, that we are at a disadvantage. The shadowy forms that we see shifting, out of the corner of our eye or coming straight at us in some situations, have the chill of the boogie man. Trust and Security on any particular issue are rare commodities.You are someone who feels this even more so than others.

These two energy phases are just plain edgy like a razor  half wrapped in a bit of cotton wool. Unfortunately, they actually feed one another. And they are present in our current everyday reality, occupying the only ground that we can stand on – and that just drives us all to maintain probing or fearing mode:

On what and where, exactly, am I standing?!

This is how the world is vibrating now and if you are an empathic person, a person who easily senses the vibe of the collective, you will be subject to all of the symptoms mentioned above exponentially. The temptation to self-soothe, to avoid reality, can be overwhelming. Your state of mind may be swinging wildly between suspicion and indignation to crumpling and desperate clinging.

Note: For some, attempting to manage this is difficult beyond description and if this sounds like you, please seek assistance. Often, local communities offer a range of services. I write this as a general public offering due to a significant number of clients, from diverse social/economic backgrounds all reporting similar symptoms. This post is intended to assist those of us noting a palpable change in our emotional state that cannot be solely attributed to our current experiences and recognize these feelings as such.

 

If this sounds familiar, this message is for you:

You are not going crazy, you are experiencing a circuit-overload that requires a breaker installation.

In the grand scheme of things, this is yet another blip on the radar. This phase has an end; you will not feel like this forever more; this is temporary.

If you are up for it, you can try to imagine, to picture your inner Self observing this, perhaps as a dark cloud-mass. There it is. It is not you, it is outside of you. Perhaps you can watch your inner Self step back and prove there is a space between you and the mass.

If that space can be held at this time, there is yet more truth-gold to be mined. There will be a wispy thread or two connecting your Self to the mass. (You are a part of the All One.) These threads can be followed via conscious, patient, relaxed examination to their root levels in your psyche. You aren’t looking for some watershed moment here; you are simply being open to whatever inner landscape/sensation field these threads appear to be anchored in. There is my inner Self. There is that mass. And there is that thread through which I exchange energy with Others. I watch for a while, observe for a while, and see if I pick up any insights.

Take Charge of Your Self-Soothing

At the very least, empaths and sensitive souls should be actively bear-hugging themselves. In whatever ways you can afford, indulge your senses. Get comfy and get lost in books, in the stories and adventures you find there; try out an adult coloring book; collect the ingredients you need for your favorite meal – or to zing up your basic menus – and savor; go out exploring in new environments that keep you rubbernecking as you go; put another blanket on the bed. Change the colors or focal point in your workspace and your living room. Put something symbolic of peace or joy in your car. A simple tea light lit in the evening can be a profound addition to your view. Do all of these things and more! Be as good to yourself as you are to others.

I have written before about how very important you are. And I firmly believe that sensitive and empathic people are a large segment of the crucial Space Holders. This means there is all the more reason to take loving care of yourself.

Sending you wishes for rest and perseverance in healthy balance,
