Disseminating Moon Phase: share, communicate

Moon in Aquarius/Pisces 10:31 pm ET/2:31 am UT

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom); Bagalamukhi, Goddess Who Destroys Illusions

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will/Desire): Ian, God of the East

Skill: bring balance to what is distorted; listen carefully to what can be heard around you

True Alignments: innocence, risking feelings of vulnerability, persuasive, reassessment, grasping the abstract, curious, provisions, different things or parts (of oneself?) coming together, freedom, letting go, fascination, alternatives recognized

Catalysts for Change:  unable to be satisfied, perfectionism, lack of value or appreciation for something beautiful, immature, rationalizing behavior, arguing a point but not able to drop it, manipulative, overwhelmed, indecision, taking, uncoordinated

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "a woman in an emotional speech dramatizing her cause" (the activation and rise of the true self or inner self; inner stirring)

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the magic carpet of Oriental imagery" (transcending the unraveling control paradigm)

Well, are the plans of the archontic Illuminati are unraveling right before our eyes?

As time built toward the Brexit vote, Pluto, Planet of Transformation  had been discharging the energetic of "the Union Jack flies above a new British warship."  The Empire and what it stands for was about to change. 

As the time for the vote came, Pluto was discharging "a girl surreptitiously bathing in the nude."  The Goddess was ready to release constraints, restrains, and restrictions.  What has been inhibiting us has been dealt a severe blow, just as it was the last time Pluto was discharging these degrees -- the time of the American Revolution.  It is a great victory for the emergence of free humanity.  It is renaissance in action.

We now enter the Disseminating phase of the lunar cycle, the time when we activate our listening and communication skills (but particularly the listening skills because Spirit sends messages via others, via background noise and conversation, and via signs and synchronicities).

Disseminating Moon phase is a "receptive" phase in the back and forth pattern between the "active" and "receptive" patterns of the Moon phases.  Full Moon phase is extremely active, but Disseminating Moon phase is the time when we go into hyper-wise owl observer mode because the universe re-arranges the pattern or shape of things.  We receive information that we need to help us and things become "better." 

Disseminating Phase is a win-win because when we open up and share (maybe even feeling like we are risking vulnerability by doing so), both parties benefit.  Honest exchanges are so very powerful during Disseminating Moon phase.  They enable us to rectify and revise and get spiffy at the next Moon phase -- Third Quarter Moon phase (Monday, June 27).

Weaving through the swirl, these themes are also in effect:

1 - STALEMATES, STAND OFFS, and STANDSTILLS come with the Sun disseminating the energetic of "a cat arguing with a mouse."  This dynamic can bring needless conflict and arguments and power struggles.  Power and control games are of interest only to those whose egos requires continuous boosting.  Real life and the basic pleasures and joys of life elude us when the power and control dynamic is being played.  An imbalance is at the core of these issues.

2 - DISTORTIONS amidst the imbalances can also play a part today.  Things can be dramatically overblown and distorted into an unrecognizable face.  We want to remain grounded and keep it real today, avoiding the trap of distortion.  This onset of this energetic occurs at 10:26 am ET/2:26 pm UT.  The Sabian symbol involved is "a butterfly with the right wing more perfectly formed."  Nature is perfectly imperfect and so are we.  Let's get passed this, shall we?  Let's strive for acceptance.

3 - VARIOUS ASPECTS OR PARTS OF THINGS COMING TOGETHER AND REACHING OUT make for an interesting day.  Venus is discharging "a small naked girl bends over a pond trying to catch a fish."  With or for what are you bending over backwards?  Are you called to reach out?  What are you trying to grasp?  Is it based in reality or not?  Is your perception limited by something? 

Cooperation and collaboration with others is highlighted today, with the Earth at "a group of people entering a large canoe for a journey by water."  Coming together for a shared goal will be very successful.  Is it time to embark on a new journey?  It's a water ride, so that means an emotional journey.  Room should be allowed for changing course.

4- THE SENSORY OVERLOAD OF CHOICES comes with Mercury disseminating the energetic of "a cafeteria with an abundance of choices."  There is so much going on as the Black Moon completes opposition with the Chiron Point on Sunday, and Mars completing its retrograde Wednesday.  Until then, it is best to just ride out the magic carpet ride and glean as much information and as many messages as one can, because the status of things will change (and come to the better) when Mars stations direct.  Mars stationing direct next week is huge.  It is most welcome.  It has been traveling backwards for what seems like a long, long time.

Today we endeavor to bring balance to what is imbalanced and distorted.  We rise above stalemate.  We bring forth the inner self to share.  We bring things together.  We see how truth and love prevail.

Happy Friday!

Full Moon Phase: clarity, realizations

Moon in Aquarius

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Bagalamukhi, Goddess Who Destroys Illusions

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will/Desire): Ian, God of the East

Skill: go slowly; double check or make certain before making choices

True Alignments:  success, innovation, open minded, evolving understanding, growth, true leadership, ability to adjust, inclusion, truth revealed, adventure

Catalysts for Change: shocks, difficulty adapting to changes, lured off or tricked, restrictive perspective, self sabotage, suppressing, insincere, secret motivations

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month:  "a woman activist in an emotional speech dramatizing her cause"

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the magic carpet of Oriental imagery"

Today is the last day of the "Solstice Full Moon" phase, which has been quite a powerhouse, not only because it was the Solstice at the time of the Full Moon, but also because the Full Moon occurred as a conjunction with the Galactic Center.

Higher levels of consciousness continue to stream important information to us on the last day of the "open channel" of the Full Moon phase.

With this framework in mind, here are the energetics in effect today to further the Solstice Galactic Center Full Moon phase's mission:

1- GO SLOWLY - The Sun reaches the degree that Venus discharged on Sunday, "an arctic explorer leads a reindeer through icy canyons."  Situations, circumstances, and feelings that were experienced on Sunday may be re-experienced today.  This energetic tells us that things may be more complicated than we realize.  Extra care should be taken.  We want to proceed slowly, with caution, and even gently, as deer medicine represents gentleness.  Situations that have "frozen up" or anything that is not progressing or happening the way we want may pose emotional challenges.  The wisdom here is to not struggle against conditions, but to carefully persevere through them.

2 - EMINANCE FRONT - People, places, and things can seem like something they aren't today, as we have Venus discharging "a group of rabbits dressed in clothes and on parade."  This sets the stage and leads into Uranus moving to the 25th degree of Aries and "a double promise reveals its inner and outer meanings."  Again, things may be more complicated than we thought they would be, especially simple promises.  Choices are involved.  Uranus will move to this degree tonight at 1:33 am ET/5:33 am UT.

3 - POTENTIAL FOR MISCOMMUNICATION - Mercury, Planet of Communication, comes to the degree of "two Chinese men speaking Chinese in a Western crowd."  Again, the wisdom is to go slowly, communicating with care, and repeating or restating things as necessary.  It is easy to feel like no one understands, but this is not the case.  Find common ground and go from there.

As these themes unfold today, there are a few other things we want to keep in mind because there are several grander factors in play that are influencing events:

1 - THE BLACK MOON CONTINUES TO OPPOSE THE CHIRON POINT UNTIL JUNE 26, bringing healing and teaching through wounding and painful experiences.  If this is aspecting in your chart, you may feel like your "torch" is being burned out by a "sword" a la last month's "symbolic battle between swords and torches."  Those with the Sun, Black Moon, or Chiron in Taurus or Scorpio are feeling this the most (along with those who have the Chiron Point dominant in their chars, as many OR readers do).  The Black Moon is discharging the degree of "a youth holding a lighted candle in a devotional ritual."  Maintain sight of your aspirations, and reinforce them by lighting a candle and saying a prayer.  Hold the line.  The transit ends June 26.

2- MARS CONTINUES ITS RETROGRADE UNTIL JUNE 29, so the way things are now are not necessarily the way they will be when Mars stations direct.  It is unadvisable to judge the outcome of any situation until after Mars stations direct.  Things are being re-worked.  Hold the line.  The transit ends June 29.

3- THE CRESCENT ENERGETIC OF "STRUGGLING" IS ON THE WANE AND ENDS JULY 4, with the New Moon in Cancer.  We are closing out the second of two months that are characterized, in the natural cycle of growth, as the time of perseverance and commitment to our hopes, wishes, and dreams.  Now is not the time to give up.  We are almost clear of it.  Hold the line.  The transit ends July 4.

Finally, the location of the Earth today reminds us of something important: "the human soul, in its eagerness for new experiences, seeks embodiment."  We are embodied.  Let's experience.

Full Moon Phase: clarity, insight

Moon in Capricorn/Aquarius 4:09 pm ET/8:09 pm UT

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Bagalamukhi, Goddess Who Dissolves Illusions

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will/Desire): Ian, God of the East

Skill:  simplify, resist the need to control or do things the hard way

True Alignments: justice, worthiness, imagination, elevated and elated, release, the unseen but evident, future action plans, seeing a bigger picture, the power to influence, unity, withstanding, inner self shining through or coming forward, explosions of ideas

Catalysts for Change:  pushing one's views and opinions onto others, misunderstandings, tantrums and fits, insincerity, manipulation (especially propaganda), far outside of reality, unloading on others, impatience, bombarded, "out of body" (make efforts to stay focused while driving, etc.), lost or in limbo

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "a woman activist in an emotional speech dramatizing her cause" (the inner self rising to write the Narrative of Humanity; stirring to action)

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the magic carpet of Oriental imagery" (transcending worries; the unraveling of old control systems and programs)

Today, the magic carpet ride gives us an exceptionally vast view of the future.

The Sun comes to the degree of "a man on a magic carpet observes vast vistas below him," giving us double "magic carpet ride" imagery.

A few things we have learned so far about the Magic Carpet Ride of Solar-Lunar Year 2016 is that it is rather weird, goes in very unexpected places, and does not stop.  We see that we cannot judge outcomes too soon because the ride is still on.  It does not end until March 2017, when the new solar-lunar year begins.

But today's energies favor seeing much farther ahead and seeing a much wider swathe of the future and what we might expect.  Themes, circumstances, situations, feelings, ideas, etc. that are present or stand out or are pointed out to us today provide key "intelligence" or information or signs about the future and what will be happening "on the ground" or in our lives.

Other themes on the ride today include:

1- OTHERWORLDLINESS - Several planets are discharging energetic frequencies that can produce feelings of disconnection or feelings of being somewhat out of body.  Venus is discharging the Sabian symbol energetic code of "two fairies dancing on a moonlit night," and the Black Moon is discharging "a youth holding a lighted candle in a devotional ritual."  Lightness and reverence are found through SIMPLICITY.

We remain in the Solstice Full Moon phase energetic today and tomorrow.  Remember that this Full Moon phase occurred as a conjunction with the Galactic Center (our spiritual home in the galaxy, according to the ancient Gnostics), so all of the days of the phase flood us with guidance, information, insight, and care from On High.  It is certainly an "otherworldly" feeling to connect with the "all-wordly."

This energetic makes for heights of creativity.  It can also bring the desire to escape reality (but why not create a new reality instead of expending energy on running from an old one?).

2- PLANNING AHEAD - The "double wide view" of today's magic carpet ride will give indicators of the future, which means we can make plans accordingly.

3 - CARELESSNESS AND THINGS BREAKING OR ERUPTING - The Earth is located at "three stained glass windows in a Gothic church, one damaged by war."  Today Jupiter moves to the degree of "a volcanic eruption."  And we have Mercury at "a woman activist in an emotional speech dramatizing her cause," re-activating the overall theme for this solar-lunar month.  So, careless actions and words can cause a great deal of harm and a great deal of drama, and thought should be given in advance.  Cathartic release and change is the goal of these energetics.

4- THE POWER OF WORDS AND INTENTIONS - Speeches and conversations are very powerful and influential today.  Mars has reached the degree where it will station direct on June 29, so it is completing its mission while retrograding to re-work how we use our energy and resources in all ways.  The Sabian symbol for the energetic that Mars will spin until June 29 is 24 degrees of Scorpio: "crowds coming down the mountain to listen to one inspired man."  This energetic is very similar to this solar-lunar month's theme of "a woman activist in an emotional speech dramatizing her cause."  Inspiration and drama...makes for a lively magic carpet ride, yes?  What is worthy and just will prevail.

Overall, things are being "forced out" with Mighty Jupiter, Planet of Limitless Expansion, simmering the energetic of "a volcanic eruption."  Things that have been suppressed are coming out like white-hot lava.

The magic carpet ride may start getting even a little weirder when the Moon moves in to Aquarius later on.  Aquarius is ruled by the planet Uranus, Planet of Changes, so our acrobatic skills of adapting to changing conditions will be helpful.

The wisdom offered today is to not to make things too hard -- to simplify.  Keep it to the simple, the basic, the joyful, the easy, the aligned.  We can do that.  We just have to remember that a higher power powers the ride, and give up the need to control it.

Full Moon Phase: full light; clarity, realizations

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia: all

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete: all

Skill: open to higher forces; inner self standing up or coming forth; activating

True Alignments: expansion, life-changing truth-seeing, inner call to action, letting it be, ideals, divine intervention, evolution of consciousness

Catalysts for Change: rigidly holding on to a thought/belief/feeling that is no longer in the highest and best interest, outbursts and freak outs (it's ok- something is trying to change), accusations, turning "empowerment" into nothing but another control issue

Today's report is abbreviated. In addition to the following information, listening or re-listening to the Sunday report may be helpful in hindsight. Much of what I discussed involves the Full Moon phase 

It's the Full Moon and Solstice AND the Full Moon is conjunct the Galactic Center- a Galactic Full Moon Solstice! 

The Aeons (Gnostic for divine beings) of the pleroma (Gnostic for the Galactic Center) flood the Earth with codes of light and information - love. 

This brings moderation, stabilization, and counterbalance - much appreciated things when the fever of a Solstice Full Moon occurs. If the Solstice Full Moon were not conjunct the GC (Galactic Center), the Full Moon phase would be much wilder than it will be. Full Moon Fever would be all out madness (insanity). Negative energies enter and affect more easily at the Solstices. A "crack" in the fields of consciousness happens, and with it comes opportunities for all kinds of things to happen. 

To some degree, inner chaos, uncertainty, and pressure has been building inside each of us since the New Moon. The goal has been to ACTIVATE us in some way. Something is trying to stand up and come forth within us. This can bring a great deal of anxiety because a change is trying to occur.  Recall that the Sabian symbol energetic for this lunar month is "a woman ACTIVIST in an emotional speech dramatizing her cause."

The GC is sending the power we need for it - for the cause of humanity. 

Mercury and Saturn make opposition today also. The theme of activation repeats with Mercury at "a Black slave girls demands her rights of her mistress," and Saturn is at "a flag that turns into an eagle that crows."

Mercury and Saturn are trying to get our heads straight so we can be better than we are - so that we can grow and evolve. 

We want to grow and evolve beyond the Mercury-Saturn component of telling ourselves everything that is wrong with us and how terrible we are. That inner voice can remain silent. It is not native to us. 

Today gets even better with Jupiter (expansion, learning, teaching, higher levels) and the North Node (destiny) making conjunction at 16 Virgo and the symbol of "in a quiet moment, a creative individual experiences the flow of inspiration."  That's a whole lotta goodness! 

The Full Moon phase energetics are intense, no doubt, but we have helping hands. Divine ones. Angels are all around. Call one over to your side if you need some help.

Let's open to a higher understanding of what's happening as our civilization returns to balance while looking like it is falling. Let's open up space for this to happen. Opening space eases pressure.

Opening space activates the Second Renaissance. 

Happy Galactic Solstice Full Moon and much love to all!

Gibbous Moon Phase: trust, the magic of life

Moon in Sagittarius

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom):  Bagalamukhi, Goddess Who Dissolves Illusions

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will/Desire): Ian, God of the East

Skill:  awaken or reawaken an ability; gain insight from an elevated perspective

True Alignments:  the heights of spirituality and creativity, seeing clearly, connecting the pieces to see the whole, recognizing potentials, learning from the past, the magic of the imagination, precession, planning for the future, current information

Catalysts for Change:  detachment, denial, limbo, the last to know, jealousy, narrow-minded, arrogance, unacceptable, self-deprecation, hard on self, foolishly trusting, false flags, manipulation, unsettled

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "a woman in an emotional speech dramatizing her cause" (the rise of the inner self; the rise of the grassroots)

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the magic carpet of Oriental imagery" (transcending the old paradigm; realizing the door to the cage of consciousness is open)

The magic carpet ride kicks into high gear today, as Venus discharges the energetic of "a man on a magic carpet observes vast vistas below him."

Vast vistas.  What vast vista, what big picture, do you see today?  What is spreading itself out widely for you to see?  What opportunities are being offered?  What is beneath you? What do you see for the future?

Looking from the perspective of a vast vista, the Magic Carpet Ride of Solar-Lunar Year 2016 is about rising above the chaos and strife of a civilization in transition.  This involves a certain degree of acceptance.  The status of things now are what they are, and they are changing.  Rapidly.

With this today, Saboath the Sun discharges the energetic of "the first mockingbird of spring sings from the tree top."  Fresh insight gained from an elevated level -- once again the perspective of a "vast vista."  From a great height, the first mockingbird sings.

In Animal Speak, Ted Andrews writes that the mockingbird symbolizes the awakening of abilities: "Look for new opportunities on your path to sing forth your own song.  Awaken and express your abilities.  Do not hold back."

At 9:07 pm ET/1:07 am UT, the Moon will conjunct Saturn at the degree of "a flag turns into an eagle that crows."  Saturn is trying to push us into the best possible situations for us, but it often does this by showing us our error, folly, illusion, or naiveté.

All of these symbols involve the air, which is quite fitting as the Sun is moving through the last two degrees of Gemini, an air sign.  Air symbolizes mental activity in astrology.  Today's situations and circumstances may be a lot to process, and periodic rests are recommended.  This will give the intense neural activity a chance to catch up.

(It bears noting that the heart is part of the neural system also, as neural cells are also located in the heart.  Your heart may be just as affected by the magic carpet ride today as your mind.)

The symbol of a flag turning into an eagle that crows is about transition -- changes from one way to another.  In my experience, this symbol actually reads "a flag THAT FLIES turns into an eagle that crows AND SOARS."

Let's crow, sing, and soar along vast vistas today.  What does the first mockingbird have to tell us and what does the magic carpet ride show us?  It can take us high enough.

See you on the ride tomorrow.

(P.S. for Wise owl musicians:  Today's energetics highly favor creating and playing music.  Refresh it.)

Gibbous Moon Phase:  trust

Moon in Scorpio/Sagittarius 9:35 pm ET/1:35 am UT

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Bagalamukhi, Goddess Who Destroys Illusions

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will/Desire): Ian, God of the East

Skill: strongly ground yourself like a tree and rise high with the branches

True Alignments:  allegiance, tapping inner strength, free to move on, turning points, supernatural, gestures of love, loyal, making decisions, reverence for the past, bridging over emotional chasms, abundant supply

Catalysts for Change:  let off, issues of abandonment, rejection, losing trust in what has been established or the establishment, separating, seeking relief, disappointments, aggression, disloyal

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "a woman in an emotional speech dramatizing her cause" (rising of the stronger inner self)

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the magic carpet of Oriental imagery" (transcending the past and crumbling past control systems)

Today, two massive planets are making exact angle to one another: Saturn and Neptune are making a square (come 90 degrees apart exactly).

Before we look at the Sabian symbols for the astrological energetics let's briefly review what Saturn and Neptune are all about.

SATURN is the inner voice that wants us to be the best that we can be.  But it does this in the harshest ways.  Saturn shouts at us, showing us all of our weaknesses or places where we wish we were stronger.  Saturn is a hard-driving taskmaster, and it wants things done correctly.  Saturn says, "Do the right thing."  It is super-responsible.  It wants structure, orderliness, and efficiency.  It tells us what to do and how to do it.  It never settles for less than the standard it has imposed. 

Enter Neptune.  NEPTUNE is the inner mystic that wants us to become ephemeral.  Neptune is nebulous, watery, misty, creative, changeable, etheric, spiritual, and streaming.  Neptune takes us to "other worlds."  It creates the stuff of stories.  It pulls the brilliant gem from the dark void.  Neptune says, "the party never ends."  Neptune creates the conditions for the information field in which we are immersed.  It is the stream of consciousness.  Since it is watery, it abides its own rules and goes where it wants.  The only standard it is concerned with is the level of spiritual connection it can provide.

So you see how the energetics are very much in contrast. Saturn wants to control and Neptune wants release.  Hence, the dilemma for us today.

Yet both seek to take us to another level.  Saturn seeks to ground or root us like a tree, and Neptune wants us to take us into a higher realm like branches.

These planets are farther out in space, thus move more slowly, so when they come into exact aspect, it is a big deal. Interestingly, both planets are retrograde right now, and Saturn will move to a different degree tomorrow.  So, most of the energy that comes from the astrological aspect through June 26 will be different from what it is today.

Here is where they are today:

SATURN: "a widow's past is brought to light" (unveiling, exposing, ridding the past, becoming free of something that has "haunted" us)

NEPTUNE: "a sword used in many battles in a museum" (putting down or putting away a battle and having something to remind us of it in the future so that it doesn't happen again)

This dance of these two energies ends today (and may carry an amount of grief or feeling of loss since the Moon and Black Moon are still in Scorpio today, emphasizing losses), but a new dance for them starts tomorrow:

SATURN: "a flag turns into an eagle that crows" (declarations, ideals/hopes/wishes coming into fruition, carrying the "banner" of the self, turning things around, liberty, the rise of the grassroots).

Today is about putting the past behind in preparation for tomorrow, the beginning of a time when we will bring structure to our ideals and creations IN SERVICE TO THE FUTURE -- Second Renaissance.

Today is contemplative.  The energy is more serious.  Serious Pluto is activated through the Moon, Black Moon, and Mars' transit through Pluto's realm of the underworld.  It is a Black Moon Day, so we endeavor to keep our shadow sides calm and to ourselves instead of projecting them onto others or lashing ourselves with them.  We are TRANSFORMING the shadow side, disempowering its control over us.

Tomorrow is celebratory.  The energy refreshes and changes.  Relief will come a little early, as the Moon leaves Scorpio and enters Sagittarius late tonight.  The heavy Moon-Mars-Black Moon in Scorpio energy fades.  Stingers should start to retract.

The location of the Earth today is "an old bridge over a beautiful stream in constant use."  This helps us bridge the gulf between today's Saturn-Neptune square and tomorrow's Saturn-Neptune square.

Above all, Saturn and Neptune together enables the structure of creativity.  Our ideas come to life; they are made real.  This should be kept in mind.

Since I have focused primarily on the Saturn-Neptune square, please rely on the True Alignments and Catalysts for Change above for specific influences today.

Happy Friday and happy Saturn-Neptune, everyone!

Gibbous Moon Phase: trust

Moon in Scorpio

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Bagalamukhi, Goddess of the East

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will/Desire): Ian, God of the East

Skill: answer the inner call to adventure and growth

True Alignments:  embracing the inner outcast, wanting to be involved or participate (be sure to include others), certain about something important, courage. dreaming a bigger dream, learning the ropes, physical manifestation of dreams, exploring the depths of something to resolve it, acting in combination or collaboration

Catalysts for Change:  stinging, taking unnecessary risks, obsession with and pursuit of materialism, excluding, uncertainty, sadness and grief (release brings relief), never satisfied, little effort expended, in "alien" or unfamiliar territory," naïve, lured off or distracted, manipulating others, unable to see clearly, lack of concern for the feelings of others

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "a woman in an emotional speech dramatizing her cause" (the inner self rising)

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the magic carpet of Oriental imagery" (transcending the past, difficulties, worries, the old paradigm)

The magic carpet ride gives us a galactic view today:

1 - BRINGING OR CHANGING SHAPE, FORM, and STRUCTURE - The Earth comes to the degree of the Galactic Center: "the sculptor's vision is taking form."  The ancient Gnostics tell us that the Galactic Center is our "spiritual home," or the place from which we were created from the spark of God.  They call it the pleroma.  When this energetic is activated, the projections of our hopes, wishes, and dreams take form or, through action, can be molded or changed for a better fit.  The goal is lasting value.  We always have the power to change things.

2 - VIEWS AND PERSPECTIVE - also change shape, form, or structure as we see new things.  The Sun is discharging the energetic of "a young gypsy emerging from the woods gazes at far cities."  This is another symbol involving "vision."  What we see may be disappointing, daunting, exciting, or alluring.  It depends on how we have felt "in the woods."  Have you been able to see the forest for the trees?  Have you felt alone in the wild?  Have you felt in the dark?  At the heart of it, this symbol is about calls to adventure, growth, and facing challenges that will "pay off" later.

3 - RISKY BUSINESS - Mercury is discharging the energetic of "workmen drilling for oil."  This energetic involves the tendency to think that things are always better somewhere else or with someone else.  There is no Sabian symbol of "the grass is greener on the other side," but if there was, this would be it.  No, the Sabians go much deeper than that, and getting to the depths of things or "drilling down" is a better description for the energy.  Risk is always implied, as the workmen are not certain if they will find oil.  It's a search for something new while operating in the dark.  But this energetic seeks to teach us that we already have much of value right at hand.

The Moon continues to transit through Scorpio, along with the Black Moon and Mars.  Those with the Sun, Chiron, or Black Moon in Scorpio or Taurus (Scorpio's opposite) may be experiencing increased anger, conflict, hurt feelings, feelings of loss, insecurities about the future, or a need to fill a void.  Remember that a nine month period of massive rebirth of who you are is happening.  We take it one step at a time.  Rest when needed and practice acceptance of what we cannot control.  Another force is directing your life.

When the Earth, Gaia Sophia, meets up with the Galactic Center, it is Homecoming Day.  Happy Homecoming, wise owls!  Let's attend to wisdom and answer the call to adventure.

First Quarter Moon Phase: step out of comfort zone, take action

Moon in Libra/Scorpio (9:19 am ET/1:19 pm UT)

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Bagalamukhi, Goddess Who Dissolves Illusions

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will/Desire): Ian, God of the East

Skill: be like the wise owl: go inside of the tree and objectively observe; bear your best "flag"

True Alignments:  reconnection, seeing the need for reform, changes in direction, sweet reflection and recollection, being a linchpin in something, leadership abilities, return to the joy of something, connection during the tough times, courage

Catalysts for Change:  empty shows, lack of courage, sacrificing, rushing, overdoing, overreacting, going against the natural flow, struggling, use of force, disrespectful, inconsiderate

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "a woman in a emotional speech dramatizing her cause" (inner strength)

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the magic carpet (ride) of Oriental imagery" (transcending old ways and beliefs)

Here are the themes of today's energetics:

1- WINTER FROST - As Venus did yesterday, today the Sun blows the Sabian symbol of "winter frost in the woods."  When this energetic is in effect, things slow down or stop altogether, almost if they have been frozen in time.  Things cannot be rushed.  Colder weather is brought to emotions, which will begin to run even higher after the Moon moves into Scorpio at 9:19 am/1:10 pm, and as the Moon builds toward conjunction with the Black Moon at 3:00 pm ET/7:00 pm UT.  Scorpio is a water (emotions) sign, and the winter cold is making a frost of it.

Mars is in Scorpio along with the Moon and Black Moon, continuing to discharge the energetic of "an x-ray photograph," enabling us to see things clearly.  Shadow sides will be out since it is a "Black Moon Day," but this energetic will make them easier to see.  When they are easier to see, they are easier to handle.  People tend to project their own feelings on to others on Black Moon Days.

A reminder that the primary fear involved with the Black Moon in Scorpio is the fear of loss.  Losses that have been experienced are naturally, keenly, and deeply felt on Black Moon Days.  This is so that they can transform or rebirth in a new way.

The Sabian symbol of "winter frost in the woods" was the Sabian symbol for last year's  Gemini New Moon cycle, June 16 - July 15, 2016.  Situations, circumstances, and conditions that were in effect at that time may return in some way today to be built upon or revisited.

2 - EVERGREEN - Outside is "winter frost in the woods," but inside we are "cozy and connected" with "holly and mistletoe bring Christmas spirit to a home," courtesy of Mercury.  The "holiday" ends, metaphorically speaking, at 2:30 pm ET/6:30 pm UT, when Mercury moves to the degree of "a radical magazine, asking for action, displays a sensational front page."  

Combined with this month's Sabian symbol energetic of "a woman in an emotional speech," the "radical magazine" energetic amplifies the drama and the surrealism.  Emotions run higher until 6:30 am ET/10:30 am UT tomorrow, when Mercury moves from this degree. 

From it all, we clearly see what is evergreen.

3 - CARRYING A FLAG - Today the Earth is located at "a flag bearer in battle."  We want to make sure which "banner" we are flying.  Are we being honorable?  Respectful?  Considerate?  Caring?  What do you represent?  Hold to your convictions, beliefs, and ideals, regardless of the conditions.  The great rise above.

To do that, reconnect with nature.  Return to basic joys.  Open to what your heart is telling you and where it is calling you.  Bear your best flag.

First Quarter Moon Phase: move beyond comfort zone; take action

Moon in Libra

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom):  Bagalamukhi, Goddess Who Destroys Illusions

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will/Desire): Ian, God of the East

Skill: see what is clearly being shown to you that promotes growth; balance

True Alignments: cultivation, practice, efforts to make things their best and presenting the best, getting to the root of something, reinforced foundations

Catalysts for Change:  bossy, denial, overly picky, left or left unprotected, shallow, pretending, disorder

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "a woman in an emotional speech dramatizing her cause" (rise of the inner self, rise of the grassroots)

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the magic carpet of Oriental imagery" (transcending worries and difficulties)

Today we see how the "garden of our lives" is growing.

Gardens are prominent today with the Sun discharging the energetic of "a gardener trimming large palm trees" and Mercury discharging the energetic of "the garden of the tuileries in Paris." 

These energies seek to remove what holds back our growth.  Things that are no longer needed -- limitations of the past -- are cut off.  Things that are out of alignment with the plan of our lives are bared.  This can be hard to accept when it is not what we want.

It can be harder to accept when there is extra light to help see or see through -- like "an x-ray photograph," the energetic that Mars continues to discharge today.

Getting to the essence or essentials of something is the goal of the energetics right now. 

A second goal is balance.  At 8:31 pm ET/12:31 am UT, the Moon will oppose Uranus.  At that time, the Moon will be at the Sabian symbol energetic of "a third wing on the left side of a butterfly."  This is about balance coming to things that have been "overdone" or areas where there has had to be overcompensation.  Uranus rules sudden changes, shocks, and surprises, so these factors accompany today's energetics.

Things may have to come to a stop, go dormant, or play out in inertia in order for the day's goals of getting to the essence and balancing.  Venus is discharging "winter frost in the woods," a symbol that indicates the time of the growing season when things are quiet, building strength underneath.  Moments, circumstances, situations, relationships, projects, work, and ideas are somewhat frozen in time to give us a picture of clarity.  Embracing the quiet calm of frost may be very helpful today, especially if emotions are high (or are being triggered by traumatic events within the collective of humanity).

The stops, dormancies, and inertia that lead to getting to the essence and balancing are also emphasized by the Earth discharging the energetic of "a chubby boy on a hobby horse."  A lot of energy can be put into something that seems to go nowhere, but may actually be creating a future reality.  Things cannot be rushed today.  If you are experiencing anxiety, get busy with something.  Simple things like sweeping the floor or watering a flower garden can help.

How does your inner garden grow today?  What needs to happen or form?  What do you need to do?  What would bring order and stability?  What needs to rise?

First Quarter Moon Phase: take action, adjust to changes

Moon in Libra

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Bagalamukhi, Goddess Who Dissolves Illusions

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will/Desire): Ian, God of the East

Skill: aim for clarity; be a bridge; look carefully

True Alignments:  seeing through the haze or fog, observant, enlarged perspective, a moment of pleasure, ability to adjust, making the most of what's around, extra effort, considering consequences before acting, finding beauty

Catalysts for Change: putting up obstacles or barriers, overemphasis on appearance, dull routines, inhumane, shallow and superficial, compulsively consuming to fill a void, unaccountable, evasion, self sabotage

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "a woman in an emotional speech dramatizing her cause" (standing up, the drama of the falling control paradigm)

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the magic carpet of Oriental imagery" (transcending difficulties)

Friends, clarity is on the way today!

Mercury is discharging the energetic of "a glass-bottomed boat reveals undersea wonders" while Mars is discharging the energetic of "an x-ray photograph."  The opportunity to see and see through is very high today.

With this, we want to keep in mind that the Sun is discharging "children skating on ice," so we want to watch or be careful how we make moves.  When this energetic is in effect, adjusting to changes and changing conditions is important.  It also asks us to make the most of difficult or challenging situations.  We watch carefully so that we can avoid the cracks -- things that would make us fall.

One thing in effect right now that we could stumble with or fall is the tendency to self-sabotage in some way.  This is very, very strong through June 26 because the Black Moon (which represents the shadow side) is transiting the Chiron Point (which represents wounding, healing, and teaching).

The Chiron Point is the degree in the sky where the planet Chiron was located when it was discovered in 1977.  The Sabian symbol for the Chiron Point (04 Taurus) is "the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow."

As the colors of the rainbow surround us today, we remember that, at its core, a rainbow is a bridge.  It can take us from one place to another - one mindset to another, one way of being to another, one feeling to another.

One "place" the rainbow can "take" us today is to a door, an opening, or an opportunity, as the Earth is discharging the energetic of "a bluebird standing at the door of a house."  The bluebird of happiness awaits us in some way at the end of the rainbow.

We may have to cross the spectrum before we get there.

Signs will appear, guiding us along the way.

Chiron teaches us about "victimology."  It teaches us about the use of power.  We see how power can be taken and how it can be given away.  We see how self-blame and shame cause harm to ourselves and others.

There is a great deal of light in the energy today -- light to turn situations around, light to see clearly.

As a great mind control program of being a victim is re-released into the collective via "the greatest mass disaster in the US since 9/11" (message: you are powerless, you are a victim, it could happen to you or someone you love anytime, you are not safe), fear is being massively triggered.  The "wonderment" of life is trying to be killed.

I think the globalists calculated incorrectly with this one, because few are as well-educated on and well-experienced with victimology as the LGBTQ community.  Obviously, this attack further incites the divide and conquer agenda (lead by Soros the Saurus or The Cirrhosis), but as all archontic agendas are now doomed to fail, this attack will backfire on them in the longer term.  The initial trauma response of shock is being experienced now, but the psyche of the collective will reorganize itself, and see through to the truth.

(How interesting that this happens just as the truth of Hillary's lesbian and straight affairs and what she has done to the women who have been sexually assaulted by her husband is about to break big.  The idea is "you must be with ISIS if you mention this.")

The end result will be the mass understanding of the anti-human truth of "Sharia Law" and its abuses to women and children.  The light is closing in on who and what is truly behind the scenes, attempting to control humanity.

It may be hard today to hold the vision of the bluebird of happiness standing at the door of a house, but this is the energetic Gaia Sophia is sending out.  She asks us to respond to higher hopes, to be a bridge and opportunity for someone else's and our own healing, and to move forward unobstructed and unobscured.

To do this, trust and release.  Trust and release to the a higher power.  Trust and release to the adventure of the magic carpet ride.  End the drama if it starts to unfold within you.  Do not buy in to the idea that the world is falling apart.  The old ways are collapsing because the true ways are rising.

Stay CLEAR and true to course.  Gaze through the glass at the wonders of life still to be revealed.

Crescent Moon Phase: persevere through challenges

Moon in Leo

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Bagalamukhi, Goddess Who Dissolves Illusions

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will/Desire): Ian, God of the East

Skill: persevere

True Alignments:  untapped potential, working together to form a plan or rough outline, information from others, understanding the clue or getting the message, invoking one's power, the rightful place, many parts making the whole, long-lasting

Catalysts for Change:  unclear, uncompromising, disconnected, homelessness, withdrawal, mixed messages, unsettled, hyper vigilance, discord, divide and conquer, mentally or physically invading, lowering the bar

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "a woman activist in an emotional speech, dramatizing her cause"

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the magic carpet (ride) of Oriental imagery"

Today we begin the Crescent Moon phase of the lunar month.  This lunar month is like a month-long Crescent Moon phase.  In the parallel of the cycle of growth of a plant, we are in the time of the "growing season" when the seed that has been planted makes its way through the darkness of the soil to come out into the light of day.  In the natural cycle, this is the time of persevering through challenges to our hopes, wishes and dreams.

Since this is the second month that is month-long Crescent energy,  and we now enter the Crescent Moon phase of it, the characteristics of Crescent are heavily concentrated and intense.  This is why people from all walks of life and belief are commenting on how strange the energy seems right now.  The need for perseverance is pervasive.

The next lunar month is not month-long Crescent energy (two is the limit).  The Next lunar month begins on July 4th, Independence Day in the US, and we will feel a release from the pull of Crescent energy.

For today, these themes and issues that we could encounter on our magic carpet ride of life:

1 - FEELINGS OF HOME MIXED IN WITH MOVING FORWARD AND MOVING ON TO WHAT IS BETTER - Several Sabian symbol speak of the notion of "home."

EARTH: "pelicans, disturbed by the garbage of people, move their young to a new habitat"

MARS: "Indians making camp in new territory"

BLACK MOON: "neighbors help in a house-raising part in a small village" (the Black Moon just moved to this degree)

Acknowledging, adjusting or acclimating to changes in our feelings about our personal and collective sense of security, home, and connections with others is an element.  There may be general "creeping unease."  Conditions in our lives may be changing rather rapidly, but the underlying foundation of the energetic steers us toward what provides more nourishment for the heart and soul.


SUN: "a large archaic volume reveals a traditional wisdom"

NEPTUNE: "a sword used in many battles in a museum"

MERCURY: "a well-kept public park"

The library of traditional wisdom lies not only in volumes of books, but also in the volume of our experiences.  The "inner library" of our experiences provides everything we need.  The degree of the Sun today (20 Gemini) is related to the Akashic Records.  So our inner library is indeed vast. 

The museum in this symbol is a history museum and possibly a war museum.  The veteran sword that is displayed may be part of a single piece or part of an exhibit.  Regardless, things from the past are in view right now, potentially cutting across our path and diverting or distracting us toward something else.  Is there something that needs to be put away or put behind or put down?

Order, structure, and neatness applied to natural settings provides easy access to connect with nature in a different way.  There is a lot of room to move, and this energetic is strong today.  Working together is highlighted here.

A final note:  Saturn and Neptune are in square.  Saturn wants order, structure, and discipline.  Neptune is nebulous, uncontained, and other-worldly.  The combination creates a push-pull.  Since it is a square that is effect, changes in direction may accompany it. 

In the midst of all of this, all we really need to remember today is that the need for perseverance is pervasive.  The little seeds of hopes, wishes, and dreams are finding their ways to the surface.

New Moon Phase: begin, intend

Moon in Cancer

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Bagalamukhi, Goddess Who Dissolves Illusions

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will/Desire): Ian, God of the East

Skill: silence the enemies of the mind; believe in the greater dream

True Alignments: connection with inner core, protection from harm, eccentricity and individuality, on behalf of others, shared insights, keeping it real, advancement, true tests, collaboration, people brought together for a common cause, adaptive

Catalysts for Change:  naive, frustration, unknown territory, fears projected onto others, misunderstanding and miscommunication (try harder), rigidly holding to the past and past actions, insincerity, uncomfortable/insecure/feeling unprotected, whole picture not shown

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "a woman activist in an emotional speech dramatizing her cause" (alignment of the inner and outer)

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the magic carpet of Oriental imagery" (transcending problems and worries/old patterns of behavior)

Far overshadowing the dynamics of the other planets, the Black Moon dominates the energetics right now.

Recall that one of this lunar month's themes or tendencies is the heightened potential for "dividing and conquering."  The Black Moon's transit (movement) opposite the Chiron Point is exacerbating this tendency.  Chiron rules surgery and cutting, so it naturally divides or separates out -- dividing.  In Greek mythology, Chiron was the "Father of the Arts of War" -- conquering.

The Black Moon rules rebirth of shadow sides.  The shadow side of Chiron's nature to first wound before it then heals and teaches is massively amplified right now. 

This is a rare transit that happens for abouta month every four and a half years. 

Do you feel divided from yourself and hope?  Do you feel divided from others and hope?

This is a trick -- a shadow, an illusion -- that the Black Moon seeks to reveal.  The reality is that we are being more closely aligned with Oneness, happiness, freedom, joy, and sanity.

Today, just as the energetics of the Grand Cross (changes, new directions) let go, the energetics of the Black Moon and Chiron Point (seeing and healing our fears) take over.

It can feel like a warm and comforting blanket has been snatched away, leaving us bare and chilled from the cold.

The truth of things -- the reality -- is that this is a transition time.  The way things appear is not how they will stay, nor is it even how they really are.  SHADOWS are in effect.  The inverse of whatever crazy thoughts are entering our minds is more likely true.  This is the nature of the Black Moon.  It shows us the truth by first exposing the shadow or façade that seeks to shroud the truth. 

Right now we are staring directly at shadows, facades, and shrouds, and they may attempt to dishearten us.  They want us to lose hope.  They want us to lose faith in truth and love prevailing.  All it really does is outline truth and love more starkly --more dramatically.  The outline is heavy enough and wide enough for us to readily see what fits in and out of the boundary.

The Chiron Point is 4 degrees of Taurus and the Sabian symbol of "the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow."  Bridges into better ways, feelings, situations, methods, and circumstances are being built.

The Black Moon is traveling exactly opposite of the Chiron Point at 4 degrees of Scorpio and the Sabian symbol of "a youth holding a candle in a devotional ritual."  Simple reverence renews ways, feelings, situations, methods, and circumstances.

The wisdom of the Black Moon's transit opposite the Chiron Point is to stop, hold light, and maintain our highest ideals - our greatest hopes, wishes, and dreams.

Instead of abandoning our greatest hopes, wishes. and dreams, we reinforce them in our hearts and minds "double time."  We hold and envision the true and right way we want things to be.

Instead of dividing ourselves from our hopes, wishes, and dreams, we conquer the past that told us that these things were not possible.

The old way is over.

Underneath this energetic, healing is occurring and valuable experience to achieve wisdom is being attained.

We hold our vision, understanding that the shadow that shrouds us from hope will dissolve June 26 at 8:33 am ET/12:33 pm UT, when the Black Moon moves to the next degree of Scorpio

Between now and then, we aim to minimize the drama, or at least turn it into a fun or even a funny thing.  Drama provides ample material for humor, doesn't it?

It may take the skills of a martial artist of the mind, but we are up to the task.  Remember and believe in the greater dream.

New Moon Phase: begin, set intentions

Moon in Cancer

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Bagalamukhi, Goddess Who Dissolves Illusions

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will/Desire): Ian, God of the East

Skill:  instead of reacting, reactivate

True Alignments: vigor and vitality, love for life, changing one's mind, widening perception, admiration, rallying, building, safe and secure, faith, reverence, pleasure, standing the test of time, heightened intuition, finding beauty, new opportunities

Catalysts for Change:  clinging or dependent, demanding (especially demanding to be heard), noisy, themind racing a mile a minute causing overwhelm or a headache (slow down). jealousy, superficial, overdoing it, losing a sense of wonder, putting too much emphasis on appearance, immaturity, tantrums, personal insecurities dominating thoughts, doubt and despair

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "a woman activist in an emotional speech dramatizing her cause" (inner and outer alignment)

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the magic carpet of Oriental imagery" (transcending; rising above the unraveling archontic control systems; the adventure of life)

Wise owls, we can save ourselves a lot of headache today if we RE-ACTIVATE instead of REACTING.

By this, if a situation or circumstance arises that prompts an immediate, knee-jerk, "old way" reaction, we interrupt that reaction before we respond, and do it a different way.

The generator for this today is the conjunction of Venus with the Sun -- a big deal.  Exact conjunction occurs at 4:37 pm ET/8:47 pm UT, but this dynamic has been in effect for a few days and will remain in effect through Wednesday.  Energy moves in waves, so it crests and wanes.

The Sabian symbol for the degree of the conjunction (16 Gemini 32) is "the head of a robust youth turns into that of a mature thinker."  The force and vitality of youth is applied at a higher level, with a greater purpose involved.

The Venus-Sun conjunction makes angles (astrological aspects) with the South Node (the past) and the North Node (the future; destiny).  The Sabian symbol for the degree of the South Node is "in a huge tent, a famous REVIVALIST conducts his meeting with a spectacular performance."  The energy for reviving -- restoring life to something -- is dramatic (especially something that remains from the past).

The Sabian symbol for the degree of the North Node is "two girls playing with a Ouija board."  When this energetic is in effect, we can feel like we have very little control over what is happening or what we are experiencing.

The easiest way to switch from "reacting" to "reactivating" is to reconnect with Gaia Sophia (Mother Nature) and Thelete (Father Sky).  Wisdom and will united brings the fulfillment of hopes, wishes, and dreams.

It may also help to know that the following themes are in effect today with the energetics of the Venus-Sun transit:

1- NEWNESS - We are in the New Moon phase and "newness" is reinforced with the Earth located at the degree of "an Easter sunrise service."  Things that feel like changes are opportunities.  In astrology, a conjunction is equivalent to a New phase (like a New Moon, a beginning).  So there is newness all around.  What does the Venus-Sun transit seek to birth or rebirth within you?

2- MONEY - Venus rules money, so we will be aware of this tendency for money issues to come up today.  Drama within the financial markets could be expected.  The Black Moon is transiting opposite the Chiron Point (which also involves money."  The Black Moon is discharging " a broken bottle and spilled perfume" and Saturn is discharging "a widow's past is brought to light."  Dirty or double dealings could easily come out.  As I mentioned in the New Moon in Gemini recording, Hillary Clinton has not fared well when the "broken bottle and spilled perfume" energetic is in effect.  I have observed the connection for some time.  The truth about the Clinton's "foundation" is unfolding.  The fall cometh.

3 - MULTI-FACETED - Today Mercury disseminates the energetic of "a jewelry shop filled with the most magnificent jewels."  Mercury rules our thoughts, and the light of the Venus-Sun conjunction will shine some brilliant gems. 

4- MORALE AND ACHIEVEMENTS - A little bit of team-building or morale boosting by recognizing and appreciating others will go a very long way today.  In general, people feel quite uncertain right now, so any attempt to secure the feeling of security is helpful.

The skills of spiritual warriors are practiced today through an artful maneuver of changing from reacting to reactivating.  We will aim to be mature thinkers.

Saturday, June 4 - Sunday, June 5, 2016

New Moon Phase (Saturday 11:00 pm ET/ Sunday3:00 am UT: begin, set intentions

Moon in Gemini

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Bagalamukhi, Goddess Who Dissolves Illusions

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will/Desire): Ian, God of the East

Skill: consider what is really motivating any dramas; what is trying to be revealed?

True Alignments:  signs and indicators, discernment, influence spreading, independent, discovery, expression of emotions, out of the ordinary, open to possibilities, desire for deeper wisdom, peace

Catalysts for Change: illusions and denial, tricks, faking, trying to win sympathy, important actions taken unconsciously or without thought, resistance to the truth of matters, pushy (especially pushing one's point of view), dredging up things, insensitive, diminishing self, avoidance of responsibility

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "a woman activist, in an emotional speech, dramatizing her cause" (moving beyond victimhood, change that comes about through drama)

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the magic carpet of Oriental imagery" (transcending the unraveling control paradigm, taking up the spectacular adventure of life)

The show begins.

The New Moon in Gemini enters this weekend, opening the curtain on a month of drama.

The key is to remember that a drama - a performance, an active narrative - is taking place, and not to get too sucked in to it.  We want to remain in our seats, which are not really seats at all.  Energetically speaking, we are seated on comfy magic carpets and can leave the "theatre" any time we like.  We can return any time we like.  And there are no lines.

Subplots of the drama this month include the following themes, which may be introduced into the story this weekend:

1- LIKE MINDED PEOPLE BROUGHT TOGETHER TO SHARE, CREATE, and COLLABORATE - As the sign of The Twins, Gemini energy is related "the other."  Mercury rules the sign, networking and delivering within the field of consciousness.  During the New Moon phase, people/places/things may show up on the scene for development throughout the lunar month. 

2- RETURN/REPEAT OF AN OLD PATTERN, HABIT, or SITUATION - This is not necessarily a bad thing, as it brings the opportunity to go back and refine or re-assert something.  Things are pointed out to us for review.

3- THE PAST BROUGHT TO LIGHT - When this occurs, it is to bring relief to emotional, mental, and physical strife.


5- FORTIFICATION OF WILLPOWER - Something inside each of us wants expression this month, and the impetus to get it done is empowered. 



8- ACTIONS AIMED AT DIVIDING AND CONQUERING - This will be big this month.  Let's not fall for the trick.

9- VENTING AND BLOWING - Ample potential for eruptions is present.  Conflicts and issues drastically present themselves to be addressed.  There is also a theme of filtering out what is no longer appropriate.  Along with this is also ample potential for inspiration and ideas. 


Showtime.  Happy New Moon!

Balsamic Moon Phase: clear, release

Moon in Taurus (Gemini 11:02 pm ET/Saturday 3:02 am UT)

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Tara, Goddess Who Guides

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will/Desire): Ian, God of the East

Skill:  let go and see where it goes

True Alignments:  sharing, bonds of love, honoring the past, strong foundations, mysteries, going the distance, the healing power of music, psychic communication, preparing space for the new

Catalysts for Change:  hard on oneself and/or others, making more rules to follow, the need for approval and validation from others, robbing someone of something, conflict, opposition, destroying/rewriting history, feeling alone, manipulation

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "a symbolic battle between swords and torches" (becoming enlightened to something important; the might of light)

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the magic carpet of Oriental imagery" (transcending; the unraveling of the archontic control system)

Today our "magic carpets" twist and turn through the last day of the lunar month of "a symbolic battle between swords and torches."  This sight-seeing tour is rapidly becoming the greatest show on earth. 

The lunar month that starts tomorrow will be dramatic in what it produces and changes.  My title for the overview of the upcoming cycle (recorded Tuesday, May 31 and posted at the homepage of is "Standing Up (Or the Drama of Second Renaissance)."

Today, on the eve of the New Moon in Gemini, we are guided in new directions (new thoughts, ideas, feelings, perspectives, etc.) as the energetics of shift weave their way through our lives.  Both Chiron and Neptune (which are both in Pisces) move to new degrees in the sky today.  We also have the Grand Cross activating, pointing things in new directions and aligning things with True North.

Chiron moves to the degree of the Sabian symbol "the New Moon reveals it is time for people to go ahead with their different projects."  Perfect timing with the New Moon beginning tomorrow.  Chiron is the planet that heals us of our wounds and teaches us that there are other ways.  Hold this thought.

Neptune moves to the degree of the Sabian symbol "a sword used in many battles in a museum."  The energy is about putting things down but keeping a reminder of them so that we remember to do things different ways.

Now let's put the two together.  Chiron at "the New Moon reveals it is time for people to go ahead with their different projects" and Neptune at "a sword used in many battles in a museum" equals "put down the swords that we use to wound ourselves and do things a different way."

In the audio overview for the Gemini cycle, I discussed how we would see evidence of a "unification" of the sacred feminine (Sophia) and sacred masculine (Thelete).  Follow this with me:

Today, the Sun is discharging "two people living far apart in telepathic communication."  The two aeons, Sophia and Thelete, have always been linked, even though Sophia was "unconscious."  In the microcosm of our individual lives, our inner sacred feminine or inner sacred masculine may have felt cut off from us for some time.

The location of the Earth today is "the pyramids and the sphinx."  In symbology, pyramids represent the masculine principle (among other things).  My grandmother visited the Sphinx in the 1970s and she said it was quite clear that the monument was of a female, but damaged in certain areas in order to make it look like a male.  At any rate, it is feline-ish, which is symbolic of the feminine.

Additionally, Saturn is located at the degree of "the pyramids and the sphinx" and it made exact opposition with the Sun at 2:38 am ET/6:38 am UT today.

The Sun, Earth, and Saturn are directing us toward unifying our inner sacred masculine and feminine, and it will continue throughout the next lunar month.

Today, Mercury gives us a clue with how to go about this.  Mercury is disseminating the energetic of "wisps of clouds, like wings, moving across the sky."  Mercury says, "Let it go and see where it goes."

We are seeing where things are going today, as we prepare for the New Moon.  We are following the shifts, watching as the two Divine Principles begin to manifest in our worlds and in our lives.

Note:  Here is a summary of the items I discussed in the audio recording for the Gemini New Moon:

1- The lunar month is the second month we have that is like a month-long Crescent Moon phase.

2-The month is detail-oriented.

3- Evidence of the return of the sacred masculine and the principles of will and desire (through openings and opportunities).  Ian, God of the East

4- Evidence of the return of the sacred feminine and the principle of wisdom (through leaks, breaks, splitting, venting, diversifying, spreading). Bagalamukhi, Goddess Who Destroys Illusions and Goddess Who Stuns and Silences

5- The month brings bounty and inspiration.

6- Mars and the Black Moon in Scorpio

7- Hillary Clinton attempts a comeback but is thwarted.

8- Dates to note:

June 6-8: Sun-Venus conjunction

June 17-26: Black Moon transits Chiron Point

June 29: Mars stations direct

July 4: New Moon in Cancer

Wednesday, June 1, 2016

Balsamic Moon Phase: clear and release

Moon in Aries/Taurus 10:48 pm ET/2:48 am UT

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Tara, Goddess Who Guides, Matangi, Goddess of the Wind, and Shodashi, Goddess of Beauty and Goddess Who Absolutely Sonically Pummels the Archons

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will/Desire): all four - Ian, Kathe, Elias, and Seth

Skill:  be fluid like an acrobat

True Alignments:  going into the mystic/the unknown, safe and secure, honing a talent or skill, new attitude, new opportunities, things coming to light/understandings, sympathetic, productivity

Catalysts for Change:  restrictions of growth, the need for approval or validation from others, insecurities, the need for absolute proof, arrogance, lost in the past, resisting change

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "a symbolic battle between swords and torches" (reconciliation of the inner and the outer; the might of light)

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the magic carpet of Oriental imagery" (transcending limitations/the past/old systems)

Welcome to a world-class day.

Have you ever seen or heard or felt something that was so profoundly beautiful that it brought tears to your eyes?

This is the highest octave of today's energetics. 

Beauty has many forms and definitions.  It applies to anything and everything.

I write almost every day and I do not have words to describe what is happening today.  It is one of my days when I wish I was a musician because words fail me when attempting to deliver the message.  Playing an instrument or using the voice for singing would be the only way to fully engender the meaning.

Thus, I will honor the beauty of the heart of it as purely and as simply as I can: We are greatly loved, and the totality of it is realized by us only in flickers.

The stars flicker for us today. 

We are being lifted above and beyond.  Out of harm's way.  It is a beautiful act of love.

A great wave of wind (the Wisdom Goddess Matangi) arises underneath us, a great push in the proper direction (Tara) snaps us into position, and then a great line of power (Shodashi)  lifts us up.

This happens today as the Sun (Saboath to the Gnostics) discharges the energetic of "a world famous pianist giving a concert performance."  Today is nothing less than that.

For us humans, the energetics may feel like we need to be an acrobat to manage it all.  Acrobatically adjusting to changes that are taking place, challenges that are being met, and emotions that are surging is the key today.  The "magic carpet ride" of the course of your life may be swaying to and fro and up and down.  It is gliding along the currents, which are dramatic right now.  A Grand Cross has formed in advance of the New Moon on Saturday, June 4, and it is changing the course of things.

Today, three of the ten "faces" or "aspects" of Gaia Sophia and each of the four "faces" or "aspects" of Thelete (with the Grand Cross) are in play to smooth out the ride for us as a "symbolic battle between swords and torches" is being "waged" or is happening at higher levels of consciousness.  The tide has turned for the Archons and their agenda.  They suffer a massive blow today courtesy of Tara, Matangi, and Shodashi.  Let's watch what happens on the first day of the Balsamic Moon phase of the Aquarius and Pisces lunar cycles later this solar-lunar year (February and March 2017 in the Gregorian calendar).  This is when what happens today will manifest or represented in the reality of our world.

Today, after something from the past provides insight for us, new things open up.  The Earth is discharging "a widow's past is brought to light," Venus is discharging "newly opened lands offer the pioneer new opportunities for experience," and Mercury is discharging "a new continent rising out of the ocean."  As I said, the day is world class.

When the Moon enters Taurus, it will begin opposing the Black Moon in Scorpio.  Those with the Sun, Black Moon, or Chiron in Taurus or Scorpio (opposite signs) experience one of the stages of rebirth that they are under until Valentine's Day 2017.  This is our first experience with the Moon in Taurus since the Black Moon moved into Scorpio, so we will see how this is.  Everyone's shadow side is faced in one way or another and to one degree or another when the Moon and Black Moon are interacting.  Projection of one's one feelings onto others is the modus operandi.  Issues related to insecurities and losses are in focus.

Nonetheless, it is a world class day.  Wonders never cease.

Third Quarter Moon Phase: revise, realign

Moon in Aries

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Tara, Goddess Who Guides

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will/Desire): Ian, God of the East

Skill:  change perspective

True Alignments: relevance, breaking free of conditioning/habits/limitations, being heard, seeing a brighter side, creativity and creation, proud expressions, liberty, leadership, seeing the future in current patterns, clearing

Catalysts for Change:  intimidating or dominating others, unjust assumptions of power, the power to sway, stuck in being a victim, expecting others to fix things, holding in feelings, difficulty letting go of what is no longer acceptable, feelings of worthlessness, giving away one's power, cluttered up

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "a symbolic battle between swords and torches" (the might of light)

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the magic carpet of Oriental imagery" (transcending the past, past beliefs, past systems)

Four planets are positioning to form a beautiful pattern in the skies.  When planets make patterns, their energetics combine in special ways to produce certain effects.

This particular beautiful pattern is called a Grand Cross.  It is an equilateral cross, with one planet anchoring each of the four points.

Grand Crosses change things.  The planets are at right angles, so changes in the direction of things occurs.  Rectification, realignment, and revision is the purpose.  It begins at the perfect time -- the Third Quarter Moon phase, the time of the lunar cycle when the energetics naturally favor revising and realigning.

The Grand Cross occurs in what astrologers call "mutable" signs, which means the energetic effect of the Grand Cross mutates, changes, transforms, transmutes, and morphs into (often unexpected ways).  Mutable energy is like a running river.  It meanders and goes into different places.

The activator of this Cross is the Sun.  The other planets involved are Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune.  A divine bit of loveliness is bestowed upon us.

But the loveliness is not confined to today.  This Grand Cross begins today, and will still be in effect at the upcoming New Moon in Gemini on Saturday, June 4.  This means the energetic is "imprinted" by the New Moon and then plays out, unfolds, and develops through the entire lunar month.  So it will be with us for a month.

Even more loveliness is added tomorrow when Venus moves into range of the Sun and begins to add its influence at that point on the cross.  Venus is the Planet of Loveliness.  When Venus conjuncts the Sun, beautiful things occur.  The power of love is activated.

The Sun hyper-empowers things.  Jupiter hyper-expands things.  Saturn hyper-structures things.  Neptune hyper-spiritualizes things.

That is a pretty good combination in my book.  What do you think?

Grand Crosses activate four directions, and the Four Directions (the Medicine Wheel) are the domain of the Knights of Sophia or the Kings of Thelete or the Band of Brothers, which are my preferred names for the four emissaries or "faces" of the aeon Thelete.  In the ancient Gnostic view, Thelete is the principle of the Divine Masculine which centers on will and desire.

All of this starts today and continues throughout the next month.  It's a giant smack down of love for the fellowship of humanity.

For today, here are the themes we encounter on our "magic carpet ride" through the Theme Park:

1- RISING ABOVE - The Sun is discharging the might of the Sabian symbol of "a Black slave girl demands her rights of her mistress."  This energetic is a fortification of inner strength that comes out into the world to set things right.  It seeks justice.  It seeks alignment with inalienable rights.  Sabian symbol Queen Lynda Hill writes that it is the energy of "spreading your wings in order to improve your situation."  The lower octave of the energetic falls into victimhood. 

(Side note:  How interesting that rapper Snoop Dogg is calling out the [mind control] programming with the remake of the Roots miniseries to incite division and victimization and living in the past instead of being part of creativity now [Second Renaissance]. --Italics mine.)

A possible indicator of what we need to rise above today may have shown up in some way last Sunday (May 29).  Venus comes to the degree that the Sun was discharging on Sunday: "an airplane performing a nosedive."  In our terms this year, our personal magic carpet may have been in a nosedive.  If so, was it a total crash or did you pull up in time?  Either answer is fine and correct.  Magic carpets do not really crash.  They do not break apart.  They fall and hit the ground, but they are kind of a built in parachute.  They just land as they are and fold in on themselves.  This year, "crash downs" are really solid landings.  We are perhaps a little bruised and sore from it, but nonetheless intact.

2- IDEAS AND IDEALS RING OUT - The loveliness continues with the Earth discharging the energetic of "a flag that is seen turning into an eagle."  Our minds and imaginations soar, and things become physical and real.  Declarations become real at some point.  What we focus our energy and attention on today holds great power to bloom later (and maybe sooner than we think).

3- CLEARING - Third Quarter Moon phase is the best time of the lunar month to clear up and clean out (change a mindset, habit, belief, environment, anything).  Today Mercury returns to the degree of "a woman airing an old bag through a sunny window."  With this, we take the best and discard the rest.  The energy wants to gets things in order, get them ready.  The energetic seeks to "de-clutter" the mind, body, and soul.  It wants to air out and bring things to light.

The Magic Carpet Ride of 2016 is nothing if not surreal to witness.  There is a lot to see, but let's remember to look UP.  There is a Giant Cross happening in the sky.  It harmonizes.  Let's tune into THAT.  Let's look.  And listen.

Third Quarter Moon Phase: revise, realign

Moon in Pisces/Aries 9:10 pm ET/Tuesday 1:10 am UT

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Tara, Goddess Who Guides

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will/Desire): Ian, God of the East

Skill: be a pioneer

True Alignments:  non-judgmental, epiphanies, moving past a fear, breaking away from something that is limiting, a new opportunity, bringing light to something, caring, self-nurturance, open minded, a new outlook

Catalysts for Change:  rationalizing behavior and actions, self-sacrifice just to keep the peace, defensive, arguments, unprepared, restriction of growth, clinging to the past, domineering, repeating an old pattern, divide and conquer tactics, heightened anger

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "a symbolic battle between swords and torches" (reconciling the inner and the outer)

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the magic carpet of Oriental imagery" (transcending the past, worries, difficulties)

Today, I will list the primary themes and then cover a couple of things coming ahead on our Magic Carpet Ride of 2016:

1- BE A PIONEER - The Sun discharges the energetic of "newly opened lands offer the pioneer new opportunities and experiences."  This is a fabulous energetic to move past a fear or barrier to get to a better place (physically, mentally, emotionally).  Pioneering requires breaking away from the familiar, to some degree or another.  It also usually involves the unknown.

2- FULL PACK - Once again, Venus has our backs, helping us pioneer into the unknown with the re-activation of "a quiver filled with arrows."  Recall that the Sun activated this energetic on Friday.  Venus is "chasing" the Sun and will unite (conjunct) with it on June 6.  (We can expect strong geologic effects that day, per the Electric Universe principle.)

As Venus chases the Sun, we can track the "variations on a theme" first when the Sun activates a degree and then again when Venus re-activates it.  In other words, things that developed on Friday (events, moods, feelings, etc.) recur or are built upon today (since on Friday the Sun activated "a quiver filled with arrows" and today Venus reaches that degree).

The "quiver" in this Sabian symbol is filled, not empty.  It is filled with what we need.  When Venus discharges this degree, the quiver is filled with love.  Anything can be accomplished with abundant love, and the fellowship of humanity is abundantly loved.  Our quiver, our pack, our hearts are full.  Where we take it from there is up to us.

3- LINKING - Today, we get smarter!  We put things together and figure them out.  The Earth is discharging the energetic of "the lamp of physical enlightenment at the left temple."  Spirit and mind unite.  This symbol underscores the need to be "in body" and to care for the body as a temple.  This is wonderful for realigning and balancing.  There may be some resistance with this, as Mercury completes its discharge of "the symbolic battle between swords and torches."  Dualities are trying to reconcile.

4- ACCEPTING RESPONSIBILITY AND BEING LENIENT - Mars (retrograde) is now at the degree of "an Indian woman pleading to the chief for the lives of her children."  There may be a need to stand up for someone (or oneself).  Take a look at any hierarchy (any power and control dynamic) before making a case.

Finally, at 10:23 am ET/2:23 pm UT, the Black Moon will move to 2 degrees of Scorpio and "a broken bottle and spilled perfume."  The Black Moon will discharge this energetic through June 8.  It will be in effect when the Sun opposes Saturn on June 3, at the New Moon in Gemini on June 4, and when Venus conjuncts the Sun on June 6.  June 3-8 will be energetically intensive.

But today we have the beginnings of some things breaking loose, spilling over, and becoming known.

Pioneers make the unknown known.  The Black Moon begins to speed the process, and the magic carpet ride continues to relate wondrous sights.  What is new today?

(NOTE: The Black Moon is now one degree closer to opposition with the Chiron Point, the energy of the wounded healer and teacher.  Those with the Sun, Black Moon, or Chiron in Taurus or Scorpio, be aware that your "rebirth" experience may be sharper or cut a little deeper until the Black Moon moves out of range of the Chiron Point (June 26).  Be gentle with yourself, rest when you feel tired, and turn your feelings over to the energetics of the transit if they become overwhelming.  Release your burden.)

Third Quarter Moon Phase: revise, complete

Moon in Pisces

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Tara, Goddess Who Guides

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will/Desire): Ian, God of the East

Skill: rectify or make something better

True Alignments: support, sincerity, protection, last minute saves, creativity, beauty, offerings, self care, recognizing a good thing when you see it, ability to redirect the course, the mysteries of life

Catalysts for Change: always chasing something else, mistrust, propaganda, unsupportive, shake ups, diving in without looking, self-sabotage or working against oneself, control issues, loss of faith or belief, drama

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month:" a symbolic battle between swords and torches" (becoming enlightened to something; the might of light)

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the magic carpet of Oriental imagery" (transcending)

Today we enter the seventh of the eight phases of the Moon, the Third Quarter phase, which essentially signals the end of this lunar month.  The eighth Moon phase, the Balsamic Moon phase, exists "out of time" somewhat, because it is the transition phase into new energy.  We revise and realign before preparing for the New.

Today, Mercury, which has newly stationed direct or is appearing to move forward in the sky once again, returns to the degree/energetic theme for this month: "a symbolic battle between swords and torches."

Mercury rules our thoughts, thinking processes, and communications.  We think about things in a new light today.  We see and understand something that has eluded us.  The psyche wants to "put down" a battle it has had with itself.  The energetic of the "symbolic battle between swords and torches" helps us overcome anything in which we are mired.

This may come about as a result of something "falling down," "falling short," "falling away," "shaking up," or "taking a downturn."  The Sun is discharging the energetic of "an airplane performing a nosedive."  There can be a tendency to self-sabotage when this frequency of energy is in effect.  Defiance is more common, but the higher purpose of the energy is to take care of ourselves or save ourselves from something.  We pull up.

New directions (even with things that seem too good to be true) are offered with the Earth discharging "a theatrical representation of a golden-haired goddess of opportunity."  Each of us is playing out a story - a narrative.  Internal or external shifts happen today to put us on the path of opportunities.  Using discernment is always best, so look twice at things before acting.  We do not want to be fooled by an act, play, or performance.

To assist, Venus discharges "an old fashioned well," which tells us that the golden opportunities and the new perspectives we gain are those which are supportive and sincere, not degenerative and halfway.  We have a plentiful "well of experiences" from which to draw and discern.  The hardest part may be believing that something better could actually result.  We rarely expect "better," but it is time to rectify that.  Today's energetics help.

Today, Spirit turns over the controls of our magic carpet rides.  We can take them anywhere we would like it to go.  All of the world is our stage.

Disseminating Moon Phase: share, communicate

Moon in Aquarius/Pisces (5:08 pm ET/9:08 pm UT)

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Tara, Goddess Who Guides

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will/Desire): Ian, God of the East

Skill: launch a lot of love

True Alignments: patience, breaking things down in to steps, personal fulfillment, pursuing a dream, creating a vision or idea, assistance, overcoming difficulties, able to see in the dark, the inner child, following the heart

Catalysts for Change:  going into something unprepared, rushing, foolish risks, things that are obscured, hopelessness, feeling that there is no point and giving up, exhaustion (what needs to change?), going in circles

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "a symbolic battle between swords and torches" (becoming enlightened to something, the might of light)

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the magic carpet of Oriental imagery" (transcending old patterns and paradigms)

The core dynamic for today is wanting to get what we want, but not knowing what we are going to get.  It is wise to remember this before getting ahead of oneself today.

The Sun is discharging the energetic of " a quiver filled with arrows."  At varying levels, this motivates us toward obtaining, achieving, catching, seeking, or experiencing something we desire.  This is stronger for some than others today (depending on how one's astrological chart is being aspected).

What actually results from what we achieve, catch, seek, or experience is more unknown than it normally would be.  This is because Venus is discharging the energetic of "workmen drilling for oil."  With this dynamic, what we find is uncertain, possibly even risky.

The combination of two energetics tells us to be fully prepared, consider all potential consequences, and make sure their is a point to it before engaging it.  The aim should be true.

Instead of launching into or toward something impulsively, we can follow the energetic of the Earth today, as it disseminates the energetic of "a mother leads her small child step by step up the stair."  We understand that when this Sabian symbol degree is activated, it is best to take one thing at a time.

This solar-lunar year is like a magic carpet ride, and today is natural for things that interest us to cross our flight path.  Wanting to learn somethingis a strong influence.  Past interests or hobbies may "return" for us to resume.  All of this relates to what is meaningful to us.

Yesterday I discussed Mars' re-entry into Scorpio (joining the Black Moon in Scorpio).  Scorpio has a pointer - a stinger.  With the Sun at "a quiver of arrows," pointed conversations, sharp stabs, and piercing emotions all too easily ensue.  Again, we want to think twice.  These energetics bring anger to the surface quickly, especially until the Moon moves into Pisces.  Then, that energy tends to turn inward, and can become gloomy and defeatist.  When Scorpio and Pisces energies intermingle, emotions become tidal waves from which people seek escape.  Overconsumption of alcohol would tend to exacerbate this effect.  This is a holiday weekend in the US, when alcohol consumption is already higher.

Love arrows of consciousness fills our quivers.  Let's launch a volley of them today, wise owls!

(P.S. I will be back tomorrow for the shift to the Third Quarter phase.)
