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.)

Disseminating Moon Phase:  communicate, share

Moon in Aquarius

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

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

Skill: change; adapt to change

True Alignments: able to compromise, breaking free, standing up for what is right, unity, acceptance, motivated for change, new awareness, release, examining the status quo and taking action, the importance of the individual, leadership, decisive, the essence of things

Catalysts for Change:  argumentative, negative outlook, mood swings, obsessions, uncompromising, false starts, demanding, cover ups, hidden motives and rituals, greed, immature, greed, bossy, overreacting

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

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

Today is a day of change.  Mars, which is retrograde, is changing signs, leaving Sagittarius and re-entering Scorpio, and the Sun, Earth, and Venus are discharging variations on the same theme.

On the Magic Carpet Ride of 2016, the ability to adapt to change is essential.

This means we become as fluid as possible today, flowing with the changes instead of being rigid, resistant, and refusing.

Because we are a traumatized species in the process of coming out of our trauma syndrome, changes trigger fears in us.  But the Planet of Changes, Uranus, is preparing to assist.  Uranus will move to the 24th degree of Aries tomorrow, and Uranus only brings beneficial change.  They are always for the better.  So there is truly nothing to worry about.  In fact, it means our luck is about to change.  We are lucky to know this about Uranus.

Tomorrow Uranus will move from the energetic of "a woman in pastel colors carrying a heavy and valuable but veiled load."  Certainly Uranus seeks to release us from burdens today as it completes the discharge of this frequency of energy.  It wants to "take a load off" of us.  Today is a day to shed what weighs on us.  Lucky for us, the Disseminating Moon phase provides optimal conditions for expressing thoughts and feelings, which goes a long way toward unburdening.  This can come about in various ways, through conversations with others or even a conversation with a journal, for example.  The purpose is to unburden or release.

Accompanying energetics for change, we have the Sun discharging "aroused strikers around a factory," the Earth discharging "deep within the depths of the Earth new elements are being formed," and Venus is discharging "a radical magazine, asking for change, displays a sensational front page."

So we have 1) recognizing a need for a change with the Sun, 2) deep inner changes with the Earth, and 3) potentially radical changes -- especially within relationships -- with Venus.

Individually and collectively, the fellowship of humanity undergoes a profound shift today.

Changes seem to be a little easier when you know they are coming.  We have some time to adjust.  The changes that come about today may be quite sudden and surprising, but the effects can be tempered by knowing change is in the air and remembering that the changes are for the better.  Even things like accidents (especially things like accidents) will yield some sort of silver lining.  Most often, that silver lining is not visible at the time of the event.

At 9:53 am ET/1:53 pm UT, Mars will leave Sagittarius and re-enter Scorpio.  The day a planet changes signs can be quite intense (and often produces geophysical effects).  When planets retrograde, they re-work things based on the nature of the planet.  The nature of Mars is to provide energy and motivation to act, achieve, begin, survive, thrive, defend, and assert.  The higher octave of Mars works for the good of all, and the lower octave of Mars works only for the good of self.

Mars is the original or first ruler of the sign of Scorpio.  Pluto is now the primary ruler of Scorpio.  By their natures, Pluto and Scorpio rule the 8th House -- the House of the Underworld, among other things.  (In astrology, the 12 "houses" or "segments" of the zodiac represent certain areas of life experience.)

So, in a manner of speaking, today Mars re-enters the underworld.  And we go with him.

Given the energetics of the Sabian symbols for today, we can accompany Mars very deeply into the journey.  The underworld is not bad.  It just provides another perspective.  And since Mars is retrograding or moving backwards, it is re-working things for the better.  We may be going back to something from the past, but it will yield valuable changes for the present and future.

Mars is fire energy, so its movement out of the fire sign of Sagittarius and into the water sign of Scorpio will be a nice relief from heightened aggression.

There is one more piece of this.  Earlier this week, the Black Moon also entered Scorpio.  Essentially, we now have the archetypal masculine and feminine energies united in Scorpio.  From the watery depths of Scorpio, shadows of the underworld are revealed.

In another sense, Mars and the Black Moon are warrior energies.  They represent the archetypes of the god and goddess of the battlefield.  Mars and the Black Moon are now combined to engage this month's "symbolic battle between swords and torches" to bring the might of light into our lives and into the world.

Mars will continue to retrograde back through Scorpio until June 29 at 7:40 pm ET, when it will station direct.  So we have a good little while with Mars re-working how we use our energy and resources.

Mars stationed retrograde on April 18, 2016, and on June 29 will station direct at 24 degrees of Scorpio.  The Sabian symbol for this degree is "crowds coming down from the mountain to listen to one inspired man."  This means that since April 18 Mars has been working toward this energetic.

For whom have crowds been "coming down the mountain" to hear?  It is interesting, is it not?

This report traveled deeply, changing a lot.  So, too, do we today.  We keep in mind that changes are afoot, and we are luckier for it.

Happy Friday, everyone!

Disseminating Moon Phase: communicate, share

Moon in Capricorn (Aquarius 10:27 am ET/2:27 pm UT)

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Tara, Goddess Who Guides; Shodashi, Goddess Who Aligns With the Highest and Best, Goddess of Beauty

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

Skill: confidence (in self and the Divine)

True Alignments:  risking rejection and vulnerability, the power of belief, rewards from hard work and effort, the beauty of form, guidance, the heart's desires, respect, inviting, tapping inner wisdom

Catalysts for Change:  rejection before consideration, fear of opening up, commitment issues, trust issues, elitism, rigidity, controlling, unwilling to look deeply, feelings of powerlessness, overthinking, overcomplicating

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

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the magic carpet of Oriental imagery" (transcending worries, challenges, and old beliefs/systems)

Welcome to a beautiful day, courtesy of beautiful energetics.

One of the primary dynamics in effect today is to not make things harder than they need to be.  When we ease up, things will begin to flow and even lead to something fulfilling (dare I say fun?).

In the spirit of this theme, let's lay out the day's the energetics, and then get on to something else.

1- RELEASE STRUGGLE - We are in the time of the solar-lunar year that is like a month-long Crescent Moon phase.  Crescent phases are characterized by perseverance through challenges -- what could also be described as struggling through difficulties.  The struggle is not necessary.  Struggling involves judgment.  Perseverance means we just keep showing up, keep going, head forward, without stopping.  The wisdom of the Crescent phase energy is "Don't give up; don't ever give up." - basketball coaching legend Jim Valvano.  Struggling is exhausting.  Releasing the need to push for a specific outcome is much easier on the body, mind, and soul.

2- OPEN UP SPACE - If and when things become complicated, mentally stop and step out of them.  Take a few deep breaths.  Allow the field to realign.  Doing so enables the interplay of the energetic that the Earth is discharging today: "Cupid knocking at the door of a human heart."  Allow things to take different forms.

3- CONFIDENCE - Today the theme of confidence in self and confidence in Divine guidance and direction repeats within the Sabian symbols today.  The Earth is located at "an old fashioned well" and Venus at "the garden of the tuileries in Paris."  These are about things that are reliable and supported.  We can draw deeply from the well of consciousness that dwells inside of us - our inner resources.  The exact things we need are neatly laid out for us to visit or revisit. 

The energy takes us somewhere specific today - someplace where light will enter, someplace that helps us understand.

This is what's in store on the magic carpet ride today.

Now, on to the beautiful part.  (I am publishing this main part of the report and continuing with  the P.S.)

Disseminating Moon Phase:  communicate, share

Moon in Capricorn

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Tara, Goddess Who Guides; Kali, Goddess of Beginnings and Endings

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

Skill:  listen; be receptive; follow intuition

True Alignments: collaboration, recognizing or utilizing a skill set, quests, delving deeply into something to understand or "master," integrity, remembering things take time to develop, preserving through challenges

Catalysts for Change:  sneaking something in or out, true intentions hidden, taking high risks, mind chatter that prevents active listening, disruption in operations, lack of vitality, overlooking, disregarding

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "a symbolic battle between swords and torches" (becoming enlightened to something; further erosion of old paradigm control systems)

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

The mighty, fiery "Full Moon with Mars" phase ends today.  What did the fullest light of the cycle bring you?  To what did you become enlightened?  What was shown to you about yourself and your course in life?

Now we begin the Disseminating phase of the Moon, the time in the lunar cycle when Divine messages are communicated.  This happens via direct, indirect, and overheard conversations, synchronicities, contact or sightings with animals or other creatures in Nature's kingdom, seeming coincidences, prompts to go back and read something, seemingly-random surfing of the internet, brief interactions (like in line somewhere), and the like.

It is very important to follow intuition during Disseminating Moon phases because Divine messages are trying to reach us.  Guardian angels, spirit guides, animal guides, emissaries of the forces of Wisdom and Will, and the like, feed back information to us.  When we follow our intuition and gut instincts, we facilitate the process.  It can be a fun adventure to follow the "breadcrumbs of consciousness" through the Disseminating Moon phase.

I say it just about every month at this time, the Disseminating Moon phase: listen and pay attention.  In order to gain the full benefit of the spiritual communique, we step back and listen.  The source field/information field is speaking to us.  If we are immersed in the moment, we hear better.

Try it now.  Stop and listen.  What do you hear?

It may be random noise right now, but stick around.  Keep doing it and, sooner or later, you will get the message.  You will hear a repeat of a word or theme that provides guidance or information.  Or, someone may flat out tell you, with no puzzle involved.  The object is to be receptive.

Further skill comes into play when we follow our instincts and intuition about sharing something with others.  This does not necessarily mean our deepest, most personal thoughts.  The time and place for that sort of in-depth sharing often arises during Disseminating Moon phases.  But the randomness of casual conversation cannot be minimized during this Moon phase.  This requires the willingness to engage with others.  The object is to be open.

This astrological year, I think the "magic carpet ride" takes us through open air markets of free exchange during Disseminating Moon phases.  There is no limit to the unusual and eclectic this year, since Uranus, Planet of Weirdness, was conjunct the New Moon in Aries (which sets the themes for the year).

As we are listening and paying attention today, here are a few notes on the journey:

1- DRILLING DOWN - The Sun is discharging "workmen drilling for oil," bringing the desire to get to the bottom or bottom line or heart of an issue (or it comes to us).  The planetary effects of fracking are being shown to us right now.

2- ESTABLISHING NEW THINGS - The Moon will conjunct Pluto at 10:20 am ET/2:20 pm UT today at the degree of "the Union Jack flies over a new British warship."  Deep things come up with this energetic, and we already have the "deep" energy of "workmen drilling for oil."  Expression of pent up anger can arise.  There is a tendency to rail against anyone or anything that tries to control us. 

The G7 starts today, but their "wheelings and dealings" will not manifest as planned.  A Grand Trine between the Moon, Pluto, Mercury, Jupiter, and the North Node is in place, and will counter all agendas based on domination.  Bad call, Illuminati.

3- PRACTICALITY -  A level of practicality underlies today's energetics.  What serves a practical benefit has more support than efforts or things based on superficial, material gain.  The Moon-Pluto conjunction is in Capricorn, which wants us to be ultra-practical.

We have our listening ears on today.  Ready to receive?

Full Moon Phase: clarity, understanding, revelations

Moon in Capricorn

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

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will/Desire): Ian, God of the East (the direction of beginnings; Ian is on duty until July 4)

Skill:  attend to wisdom (pay attention, connect with nature, recognize patterns)

True Alignments:  enlarged or changed perspective, observation, motivation, reforming, breaking free of a burden or challenge, attraction, reflecting, reunions, ideals, memories, beauty of form, bridging

Catalysts for Change: not wanting to get involved, self-aggrandizement, harsh self criticism, denial, argumentative, close-minded, going too fast, propaganda, lacking direction, high drama, going along with what others want for you instead of what you want for you

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "the 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/unnatural beliefs and systems)

Today, the Earth (Gaia Sophia) discharges the energetic frequency encoded in the Sabian symbol for 5 Sagittarius: "an old owl up in a tree."  This is the "founding energetic" of the Oracle Report, and one of the reasons I call readers the "parliament of wise owls."  A group of owls is called a parliament.  Owls see what others miss.

When the energetic of "an old owl up in a tree" is in effect, wisdom is certainly gained.  However, there is another aspect to owl energy that is not discussed as much as the "wisdom" theme: strength. 

It takes strength to gain wisdom.  We forget this.  Strength is needed to truly (accurately, objectively) reflect and contemplate.  Reflection upon what we experience is how we gain wisdom.  Wisdom is much more than knowledge.  Wisdom requires a certain strength of Will.

Strength of will is always just as much in effect as wisdom when the Sabian symbol of the "owl owl up in a tree" is activated.

Strength of will to stay (or get) on track, to hold one's own mind, to stick to one's convictions, to not be easily swayed, and to prompt a beneficial change is our blessing today.

It is important to understand that we remain in the Full Moon phase of the cycle.  The characteristics of a Full Moon last longer than the day that the Moon is Full.  Most people do not understand this because the wisdom has been suppressed (almost to the degree of eradication, but behold the return of wisdom).

As we recall, Mars was conjunct the Moon when it became Full.  Mars is fire energy.  It is tempestuous, impulsive, and oftentimes aggressive.  Mars activates anger as well as depression (they are polarities).  Full Moons bring everything to heightened (fullest) expression.  Full Moon Fever naturally has people saying and doing things that are out of the ordinary (extreme, cathartic), but with Mars right there with it takes it to another level.

One manifestation of this is an increase in accidents and violence.  Another manifestation would be the concentrated geophysical activity we are seeing. 

The pressure can be intense.

Today, as the Full Moon phase continues, Mars and Venus will come to exact opposite places in the sky.  In astrology, this is called an opposition.  The planets come to exactly 180 degrees apart.

In the natural cycle of time, an astrological opposition is called a Full phase.  The two planets engage in their own Full Moon together.

So we have Venus and Mars making opposition (Full phase) during the Full Moon phase.  This means double the trouble and double the fun.

Combinations of Venus and Mars focus on relationships and the masculine and feminine principles.

At the time of the opposition, Mars is located at the degree of "retired army veterans gather to reawaken old memories."  This energetic brings like-minded people (people who are in resonance) together.  It can also tend to hold on to the past.  The highest octave is reflecting on the past in order to understand something that is going on now.

At the time of the opposition, Venus is located at the degree of "a glass-bottomed boat reveals undersea wonders."  This energetic brings the ability to see beyond or see through what is normally hidden or inside boundaries.  It can also tend to put up barriers.  The highest octave is recognizing that there are wonders that we never see.  Under the surface, life is teeming.  Beyond the matrix, wonders never cease.

With all of this, the Sun is discharging the energetic of "a radical magazine, asking for action, displays a sensational front page."  What is sensational today?  Will our perspective change?  What is induced within relationships?

This is a long explanation of the energetics.  It probably required some strength of will to plough through it.  But that is what wise owls do.  We persevere.  We find our Inner Thelete, our Will and Desire (to Know).  We know that the tendency today is for us to see things either more fully or from a different perspective.  We understand that a spark is trying to galvanize something for us.  We realize that people are being brought together.  We see the past come to light.

We attend to Wisdom.

Full Moon Phase: realizations, insight, clarity

Moon in Sagittarius

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

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

Skill: have patience with self and others; refresh

True Alignments:  graceful, focused, permanence, determination, returning to nature, small pleasures, progress made one step at a time, genuine, deep emotions, dazzled, heightened creativity, traditions that hold

Catalysts for Change:  irritable, hyperactive, not asking for help, performances to sway things socially, neglect, rejection, feelings of meaninglessness, overreacting, ego centric, overcomplicating

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

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

In many ways, we are in "fresh" energy right now, which always requires a little time to adjust. 

The Sun and Earth moved into a different sign of the zodiac, Black Moon moved into a different sign of the zodiac, Mars (which is retrograde) was conjunct the Full Moon, and Mercury stationed direct all basically at once this past weekend.

Any one of these happening would have strong energetic effects, therefore strong effects on our personal lives and the collective life of humanity.

Since we remain in the Full phase of the Moon until Wednesday, the Mars component remains in effect.

Between now and then, a major astrological aspect occurs: tomorrow we have Venus making opposition with Mars.  More on this tomorrow.

In preparation, the wisdom of today's energetics tells us that recognizing that we are acclimating to fresh energetics and also having patience with one's self and others will completely alter our experience.  It will not be as much of a struggle or disruption.  The Earth is discharging the energetic "a little child learning to walk."  We are young to these new energies, so patience is needed.

To facilitate an easing into these fresh energetics, here are a couple of themes to be aware of with some suggestions for navigation:

1- NERVOUS, HYPER, DISPROPORTIONAL - Mars completes its discharge of "an ocean covered with whitecaps" today, completing the stirring up of emotions and energy.  This energetic brings a lot of energy or takes away a lot of energy.  You may be on one end of this spectrum or bouncing between the two of them.  Either way, it is an "extreme" energetic that can wipe us out.  This completes before Venus reaches opposition with Mars tomorrow.  Be aware that there can be some element of not being shown the whole picture or truth when this degree is activated.  Diving deeply below (extracting emotions and coming to a place of objectivity) may still be needed today.

2- CENTERED AND HUMBLE - These two states of being are priceless today.  Venus discharges the energetic of "a peacock parading on the terrace of an old castle."  We do not need any prancing or parading around today.  The need to be the center of attention will not work out well today.  This energetic is more about what is "proper," and in the Second Renaissance, the current awakening and rebirth of humanity, what is "proper" is what is aligned with truth, liberty, free expression, respect for others, and inalienable rights  FOR ALL.  This energetic provides the antithesis of the systems of the globalists. 

The peacock does not parade around because he is on a fine estate.  They saunter and fan out their feathers just as much when they are on a dusty back road.  Peacocks are brilliant, beautiful creations that create breathtaking spectacles of nature when they fan out their full glory.  The peacock does not show off for its own sake.  It amplifies the recognition of a higher force of creativity.  In other words, it evidences the extreme brilliance of nature, not itself.

3- EVOKING FEELINGS OF HOME - The Sun discharges the energetic of "holly and mistletoe bring Christmas spirit to a home."  The feeling of home comes from nature.  The symbol is specific in this.  It also tells us that a "holiday spirit" or the ideal of home can be found in nature.  An inner feeling (an inspiration) is found by connecting with the natural world.

AT 11:38 am ET/3:38 pm ET, the Moon will trine Uranus, potentially heightening levels of anxiety/nervousness and surprising news or twists in the process of something.

At 3:23 pm ET/7:23 pm UT, the Moon will square Chiron potentially heightening the odds of learning something important (possibly through something that stings).

At 6:33 pm ET/10:33 pm UT, the Moon will conjunct the Galactic Center, opening a streaming channel with Source.  Tune in and be inspired.

Today, let's have patience with ourselves and others.  Let's refresh.

 

Friday, May 20 - Sunday, May 22, 2016

Friday:  Gibbous Moon Phase:  trust, magic

Saturday & Sunday: Full Moon Phase: revelations, clarity

Skill: dive beneath the surface for objectivity

True Alignments: enlarged perspective, idealism, reflection on hopes/wishes/dreams, drawn toward something, rewards, piercing the veil, out of the ordinary, safe, reverie

Catalysts for Change: avoidance, putting up barriers, wanting guarantees, exaggeration, seeking glory for glory's sake, not using common sense, blinded to something, struggling

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

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

Several different (but interrelated) energetics are in motion over the next few days.  Here is a run down:

Friday is an interesting day in that we will almost have a repeat of it on Tuesday, May 24.  On Tuesday, Venus and Mars will be in opposition at the same degrees where the Sun and Earth are today.

FRIDAY, MAY 20, 2016 - On Friday, the Sun is located at "a glass-bottomed boat reveals undersea wonders."  This energetic enables us to objectively see things that are not usually visible or apparent.  This comes about from a rather detached perspective, with some safety between us and what's below.  What we see is not necessarily "negative" or disruptive, just filled with wonderment or amazement.  In other words, it is a sight to behold.  We can see beauty just as much as we can see sea monsters (of the psyche).

On Friday, the Earth is located at "retired army veterans gather to reawaken old memories."  The Resonance Principle is in effect bringing like-minded people together.  There is a tendency to look back at the with nostalgia, often glossing over the "bad" and emphasizing the "good."  Reflecting enables us to do things a different way.

OBJECTIVITY IS THE THING TO KEEP IN MIND FRIDAY.  DETACHMENT FROM ISSUES IS BEST, AS THE ENERGETICS WILL CHANGE WITH THE FULL MOON SATURDAY.  BEST TO WAIT-OUT MAJOR DECISIONS UNTIL MONDAY, IF POSSIBLE.

Themes, events, circumstances, situations, and developments that occur today will in some way recur or be revisited Tuesday, when Venus and Mars come to these same degrees.  It is a good idea to note or journal today to compare Tuesday. 

SATURDAY, MAY 21, 2016 - At 10:52 am ET/2:52 pm UT, the Black Moon will leave Libra and enter Scorpio, where it will transit until Valentine's Day 2017.  The day a planet (especially an outer planet or the planetary anomaly called the Black Moon) changes signs can be intense.  It can feel like the ground beneath us has shifted, knocking us off kilter a bit.

The themes of the Black Moon in the polarity of Scorpio (issues with loss) and Taurus (issues with security) now come into focus for rebirth.  The Black Moon will attempt to help us solve and relive these things.

Scorpio is ruled by Pluto, but was originally ruled by Mars.  Scorpio gets a bad rap most of the time because it can carry a great deal of anger and aggression, and can go very deep and get very ugly.  In astrology, Pluto and Scorpio rule the 8th House, the house of the underworld.

Ultimately, Pluto and Scorpio transform in the deepest ways.  This is what we can expect over the next nine months.

Over the last nine months, the Black Moon in Libra (ruled by Venus and Eris) brought harmony and unity.  Certainly, the collective of humanity came together in new and unprecedented ways during the Black Moon's transit through Libra.

Now it's time for transformation.  And it is a major transformation, as the overarching theme for this solar-lunar (natural) year is transcending the past, transcending worries and difficulties, and transcending the crumbling Archontic power and control system.

In the current trend of exits, with the "Brexit" and possibly the "Texit," humanity, as a fellowship and en masse, will have a "Matrexit" -- an exit from the matrix -- during the Black Moon in Scorpio.

SATURDAY, MAY 21, 2016 - 5:14 pm ET/9:14 pm UT - The Full Moon phase enters while the Moon is conjunct Mars.  This means the Full Moon phase will be fiery! 

The themes involved with the Full Moon phase are 1) gifts - seeing our gifts, accepting our gifts, sharing our gifts, and giving, and 2) wishes - making them and fulfilling them.

At the time of the Full Moon, the Sun (which is what enables the light of a Full Moon, let us not forget), will be discharging the energetic of 02 Gemini and "Santa Claus filling stockings furtively" (secretly, stealthily).  This is where we get the "gifts" and "wishes" components of the Full Moon's themes.

The flip side of this Full Moon is much greater potential for deception, hiding things, and trying to get away with something.

At the time of the Full Moon, the Moon and Mars will be discharging the energetic of 02 Sagittarius and "the ocean covered with whitecaps."  THE NEED TO DIVE UNDERNEATH MAY ARISE.  Things can get very choppy when this Sabian symbol energetic is activated.  Honesty and dishonesty often come into play.  This is where we get the "deceptions" and "hidden" components of the Full Moon's themes.

SUNDAY, MAY 22, 2016 - MERCURY STATIONS DIRECT at 9:20 am ET/1:20 pm UT.  Praise be!  Interpersonal communications, telecommunications, electronics, travel, and our thinking processes are released from the massive revision and realignment that Mercury retrograde endeavored to accomplish.  Mercury retrograde reworked things.  Now they can begin to move forward and make progress.

The day a planet moves - stations retrograde/direct or moves into a new sign -- is always intense because a sling shot effect happens.  Both Saturday and Sunday have these characteristics.

So this weekend could be quite eventful with the Black Moon, Mercury, and a heck of a Full Moon in effect.  Emotions always run higher during Full Moons.

I would say "forewarned is forearmed," but we need not view this weekend as something to battle.  A battle IS happening at higher levels of consciousness this month, and the Full Moon always brings the peak of that.  Our job in this is to maintain equilibrium -- keep it together and act like a sane human being.  Spiritual warriors dive deeply when the times call for it.  This weekend may be one of those times.  Dive under the choppy surface and find the place of calm.  From here we can see and act objectively.

Happy Full Moon, everyone!

Gibbous Moon Phase: trust, magic

Moon in Scorpio

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

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

Skill:  go outdoors, deepen connection with nature

True Alignments:  beauty and form, neat, attraction, ancient things, fun-loving, useful, sustainable, all for One(ness) and One(ness) for all, integrity, laughter, the true nature of humanity (loving), behind the veil

Catalysts for Change: unkempt, contempt, illusions, disconnected, immaturity, tricks and false flags, misbehaving, bragging, jealousy, the need to be the center of attention

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

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

Today the energetics settle down a bit.  In turn, I will forego lengthy explanation.  The over-arching theme for today is taking time for self-care and care for loved ones.  It is a day to get back to basics, re-aligning ourselves with what is most precious about life.  This is important to do before the onset of the Full Moon phase.

Saturday's (May 21) Full Moon bring Venus and Mars with it.  The Moon is in tight or close conjunction with Mars at the time of the Full Moon.  Venus is in range of conjunction with the Sun.  This means all of these planets will be working (playing) in concert.  Mars-Venus energetics are about romantic relationships, of course, so things will develop or occur within those.  But Mars-Venus is also about how and where we use or expend our energy.  Is it directed toward love or anger?  Is it directed toward what we truly value or siphoned off in the opposite direction?

Today offers us an opportunity to "recharge our batteries," in advance of the blazing fire energy that will come with the Full Moon in Sagittarius.  This is best accomplished by spending time in nature (connected with the mind of Gaia Sophia) and taking time for self-care in whatever form is needed.  Self-care enables optimal care of others.

Let's stop, take deep breaths, and seek beauty.  If being outdoors is not possible for some reason, take time to look out of windows.  Conscious effort to reconnect with the natural world is the goal.  Sophia heals and restores us, and she is available 24/7.  Step outside and feel the magic of her Gibbous Moon phase.

Gibbous Moon Phase: trust, magic

Moon in Libra

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

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

Skill:  hold the line; think twice

True Alignments: cooperation and collaboration, like attracting like, getting a result, standing up for others and ourselves, making a case, forgiveness, harmony, determination, confidence, releasing responsibility or shame, seeing new opportunities and beginnings, the continued rise of the grassroots

Catalysts for Change:  playing games, unfinished, commitments that do not bring satisfaction, working with a team but taking all the credit, trying to dominate or intimidate others, sacrificing self, stressful environments revealed, overly competitive, aggression, repeating a self-sabotaging pattern, invading territory or space

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

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

If we could hear the music of the spheres (the planets) right now, we would hear a particularly frenetic part of the  arrangement.  There is a lot going on.

Let's break it down and also spool up the "FTL" (faster than light) on the "magic carpet" for a look a little bit ahead:

1- QUICK CHANGES - The Moon will oppose Uranus today, but this time around is much more impactful.  This is because it is the last time for 9 years that the Moon will be in the same sign as the Black Moon (and the fact that Uranus is opposite in Aries this time).  The Moon will move out of Libra and into Scorpio tomorrow at 1:58 am ET/5:58 am UT, ending the massive push for change that is happening. It is epic or monumental (as in marking a point in time) levels of change.  The exact opposition of the Moon and Uranus occurs today at 11:22 am ET/3:22 pm UT, but is effectively in operation until the Moon leaves Libra.

2- RELEASE OF BURDENS IN ANTICIPATION OF NEW BEGINNINGS OR OPPORTUNITIES -  At the time of the opposition between the Moon and Uranus, the Moon will be located at the Sabian symbol energetic of "a chanticleer's (rooster's) voice heralds the rising Sun with exuberant tones," and Uranus will be located at "a woman in pastel colors carrying a heavy and valuable but veiled load."

The last days of the Black Moon in Libra are producing "rebirthing" effects for everyone to some degree of another, but especially for those with the Sun, Black Moon, or Chiron in Aries or Libra.  Today's energetics seek the release of something we have been carrying, possibly for a long time.  The "internal battle of swords and torches" wants to come to an end with the release of something that weighs on us.

As the Black Moon transitions into Scorpio (exact movement on Sunday, May 21 at 10:52 am ET/2:52 pm UT), those with the Sun, Black Moon, or Chiron in Taurus or Scorpio are most likely feeling the approach of the Black Moon.  A lack of energy combined with feelings of loss and concerns about security for the future are the first signs.  Wise owls who fall into this category are beginning the time of rebirth.  See my book on the Black Moon (which is available for free download) on the Books tab for more information.  Be assured that I will be tracking this time just as I have with the Black Moon in Libra, so there will be help along the way.  We are always better from the transits of the Black Moon, so prepare to become a better (happier, more balanced, and more spiritually aligned) you.

3- TWO BY TWO AND GAMES - At 6:39 pm ET/10:39 pm UT, Mars (which is retrograde through June 30) moves to the degree of "two men playing chess."  The Sun is discharging another energetic of "two's" today with "two cobblers working at a table."  Cobblers make shoes (I have come to understand that the term "cobbler" is not as widely known as it used to be).  Shoes offer protection in our travels.  Chess is a game of strategy and forethought -- the mind has to travel ahead to plan moves.  What does this evoke for you?  What needs to happen?

Endeavors, projects, goals, ideals that are underway in collaboration with another (especially someone of like mind or "resonance") are greatly supported today.

4- INSTINCTS - What is natural or native to us comes out today.  Two Sabian symbols images involving Native Americans are in effect today.  The Earth is located at "an Indian woman pleading for the lives of her children," and Venus moves to the familiar "an Indian warrior riding fiercely, human scalps hanging at his belt."  The "Indian warrior riding fiercely" energetic has been hyper-active lately, but today it focuses on interpersonal relationships, since Venus is activating it.  Metaphorically speaking, the tendency is for "heads to roll."  This can manifest in any type of interpersonal relationship (professional, romantic, familial, etc.)  The combination of these two Sabian symbols suggests that there me some degree of guilt, remorse, or shame after one "unleashes."  Let's by-pass all of this.  Clear, concise communications delivered respectfully are best.

5- A LOOK AHEAD - Several major astrological events are on the horizon.  Here is a list so that we can be aware of the timing, along with some key intel:

BLACK MOON ENTERS SCORPIO - SATURDAY, MAY 21 - 10:52 am ET/2:52 pm UT - A major transition of energetics occurs, just before the Full Moon.  Scorpio is ruled by Pluto and is "underworld" energy.  What has been in the shadows of the underworld will be brought to light during the Black Moon's transit of Scorpio.  Look out new world order.  The King of the Fairies (the Sacred Masculine) cometh and his name is Thelete.

FULL MOON - SATURDAY, MAY 21, 2016 - 5:14 pm ET/9:14 pm UT - Mars at 02 Sagittarius will be conjunct Full Moon.  The Sabian symbol energetic involved is "an ocean covered with whitecaps."  It will be an intense Full Moon with Mars there.  Things go deep.

MERCURY STATIONS DIRECT - SUNDAY, MAY 22, 2016 - 9:20 am ET/1:20 pm UT - Mercury finally sling shots forward again, enabling things to progress.  Mercury stations direct at the degree of "a man with a rakish (tattered) silk hat muffled against the cold braves a storm."  End of storm.

And this is the end of this very long report.  Hang in there, everyone.  The magic carpet ride is getting interesting!

Gibbous Moon Phase: trust; magical

Moon in Libra

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): all

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will/Desire): all

Skill: persevere

True Alignments: talent within, rising above, having a parachute, ploughing on, sharing, second chances, the right reasons, celebrations, deeper understanding of something, revitalized, romantic, chivalrous, prophetic, secure

Catalysts for Change:  greedy, deceptions/delusions/denial, superficial or surface concerns, numb, sad, lethargic, lost, self-loathing, suppression of emotions and expression, domination, misguided, settling for less or whatever is available, the wrong reasons

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

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

"The king of the fairies approaches his domain."

Welcome to the first day of the Gibbous Moon phase, the phase before the Full Moon and the time of the lunar cycle when magic is afoot.  This Gibbous Moon phase, the Aeon of Will and Desire, Thelete, cometh.

We might call what transpires today magic, but it is actually energetic frequencies at work.  The frequencies are rather magical.  It is a mighty day.

The Earth is discharging the archetypal energetic of "the king of the fairies approaching his domain."  In an expansion on the Gnostic teachings, the King of the Elementals would be Thelete, the partner of the Sophia, the Aeon of Wisdom, who is currently in physical construct as planet Earth - Gaia Sophia.

This report is departure from tradition al reports, so if you do not follow the Gnostic part of my work, please read the True Alignments and Catalysts for Change for the fundamentals of today's energetics.

This report is a report about the ELEMENTALS of today's energetics.  A heavenly exchange is occurring today.  At other levels of consciousness, the Archons will be the recipients of a tremendous "wave" that sets them back, pushing them closer into re-integration with their source -- Gaia Sophia.  The shadow side undergoes a degree of reintegration.

Thelete and his emissaries (the Knights of Sophia) lead a grand collaborative effort with Sophia and her emissaries (the Mahavidyas, the Wisdom Goddesses), and a contingent of the fellowship of humanity (anyone awake and wise to it).  Today, Thelete and Company push back.

What's asked of us is two fold:

1- TRUST.  Gibbous Moon phases ask us to trust.  In what do you trust?  It does not have to be related to anything written here.  It's the ability to do it.  It is an elemental spiritual function.

Can we trust that life is evolving out of tyranny over the heart, body, mind, and soul?

If you knew the outcome was a win, would it make the effort easier or, shockingly, more fun?  Would it be an adventure instead of a battle?

Would your attitude or perspective change?

Venus discharges the energetic of "a white dove flying over troubled waters," one with which we are very familiar lately.

Mercury discharges another one we have experienced a few times recently: "a man with a rakish (tattered) silk hat muffled against the cold braves a storm."  Troubled waters and cold storms are turned on the Archons today.

2- PERSEVERANCE -   Since the Archons are generally clinging on to humans to some degree, we feel the energetics, too.  We are asked, once again, to practice the skill of perseverance.

At a higher level of understanding, shadows are returning from where they came.  It is a good thing, a happy thing.  It does not necessarily feel good when it is happening.

If we can change our perspective -- radically -- toward the celebratory energetic that would be felt when the "king of the fairies approaches his domain," we can experience today much differently.

We can return home, in our hearts.  We can feel assured.  We can feel safe.

The Aeon Thelete speaks.  "All is well."

Calling all wise owls...

First Quarter Moon Phase: step forward

Moon in Virgo/Libra 1:32 pm ET/5:32 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:  look at something a different way and then try a different way

True Alignments: hidden talents recognized, clear indications, success and achievement, wisdom, respect and care for elders, acknowledging capabilities, building morale, integration or reintegration, capable, happy memories, changing perspective

Catalysts for Change:  things that are automatic or not thought out, feelings of superiority, selling out, underestimating self and not recognizing skills, being demanding, pompous, hyper-critical, poor loser, dismissing other's ideas before consideration, devaluing

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

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

The Sun, Mercury, and Venus often travel together through the same sign of the zodiac at the same time.  Right now, the Sun, Mercury, and Venus are trailing through Taurus in tight succession.  This means that the same energetics are activated and then re-activated, as these planets pass through the degrees, one by one.  Specific themes stay in play, as each of these planets contacts the specific degrees and their associated energetic (as encoded and described by the Sabian symbols).

Mercury is retrograde until May 22, and as it does so, it goes back to re-do, rework, revise, re-think, and re-work situations, so repeating themes are common.

Today, Venus wants to make sure we get the picture about something (see something important that we may have overlooked, ignored, or disregarded).  Venus reaches the degree of the "moving finger points to significant passages in a book."  Something in the external world intervenes to help us see anything that needs to be taken into account or put on the table for consideration. 

Mercury activated this energetic on May 7 & 8 and the Sun activated it on May 10.  Today it is Venus' turn.

This means that the recognition and revision focuses specifically on Venusian issues - relationships, comfort, beauty, money, love, nature, the feminine, and satisfaction.  We see things we missed before.

The ability to go back in time, so to speak, and make things better for the present and future is the blessing of retrogrades.  All of the energetics involved with this particular retrograde amplify this blessing.

The feelings of wanting to be "unstuck" and wanting things to move forward become quite strong the closer Mercury comes to stationing direct (or appearing ot move forward once again).  The sling on the slingshot is reaching its maximum stretch backward, creating tension.  We will need to deal with this as May 22 gets closer.  The slingshot forward will come with a burst (and a relief).

There's a hitch in this, and it is, of course, the Black Moon.  May 22 is a big day not just because Mercury stations direct, but also because the Black Moon moves into a new sign. The Black Moon will move from Libra into Scorpio.  The day a planet enters a new sign (and it takes about 9 months for the Black Moon to do so), is always a powerhouse.  We have two powerhouses going that day.

But today the Moon itself enters Libra, joining the Black Moon in Libra for THE LAST time this go around.  The Moon will enter Libra today at 1:32 pm ET/5:32 pm UT, and it will transit through Libra until Thursday, May 19 at 2:30 am ET/6:30 am UT.  This period of time will be exceptionally intensive, with shadow sides (core fears) coming up to be seen, re-worked, and re-done.  It is a rebirth of great importance.

Issues related to our self-esteem and senses of self-worth, perfectionism, identity, and belonging are highlighted.

With this, today the Sun is discharging the energetic of "an Indian woman selling beads."  The dynamic is about not selling ourselves or others short.  It's about seeing true value, not the value imposed by superficial sources.  We also see the value of our time and energy when this symbol is in effect.  If what is being offered to us is valuable, the counter-offer should be generous, in kind.

The Earth is discharging the energetic of "a military band marches noisily in the streets."  Big shows and loud announcements can give us a headache today.  Rhetoric, beating war drums, trying to stir up trouble, and keeping things in dis-equilibrium is a tactic of the military-industrial-occult complex.  We rise above the ruses.

For those with the Sun, Black Moon, or Chiron in Aries or Libra, this pass of the Moon through Libra hails the end of the journey through the underworld to face oneself and be "reborn."  The things that limited or held one back have tried to break loose and fall away.  The Black Moon seeks to free us from the chains that bind us to the past, to our old ways, and to the fears that keep us repeating the same patterns over and over again.  It seeks to stem or eliminate our downfalls.  The Black Moon is truly a guiding light, but it rarely feels that way.  Relief is on the way, wise owls.  May22 approaches.  We endeavor to see it through with grace.

To assist, here is the breakdown of this last round of the Moon and Black Moon in Libra:

MONDAY, MAY 16 1:32 pm ET/5:32 pm UT:  Moon enters Libra(Black Moon Days in effect -- days when people's fears and shadow sides surface)

WEDNESDAY, MAY 18 11:22 am ET/3:32 pm UT:  Moon opposes Uranus (change that is often radical, surprises, accidents that later reveal a silver lining)

THURSDAY, MAY 19 1:58 am ET/5:58 am UT: Moon conjuncts Black Moon (most intense time of this transit, shadow sides come out in major ways)

THURSDAY, MAY 19 2:30 am ET/6:30 am UT:  Moon enters Scorpio

Until then, things could get very noisy, very dark, and very ugly.  People will tend to lash out and speak before thinking, project their own feelings onto others, and seek scapegoats.

We will do this a different way, a wiser way.  Since we know that rebirth is the theme, we step aside and let the energy work in its own way.  Can we do it gracefully?  Absolutely.  That's the goal.

See you tomorrow for the start of the Gibbous Moon phase, the magical time of the lunar cycle.

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

Moon in Virgo

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

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

Skill: glide with the currents of change

True Alignments: enthusiastic, aiming, taking an opportunity, feeling at home, feelings safe, adjusting, innovation, quick reflexes, recognition, trusting in Spirit

Catalysts for Change: accepting less than one should, coming in and taking over, unsettled, deceptions, unease, homesick, damaged ego

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)

Did you becoming enlightened to something yesterday, with the Sun and Earth activating Chiron?  Did you see and learn something about yourself?

As mentioned in yesterday's report, events, circumstances, conditions, developments, possibilities (and the insight gained from these things) was activated to clear a path -- to gain clarity, solid foundation, definitiveness with something in our lives.

Yesterday's report also discussed how the insight would start out as personal, but then would fan out to produce changes in our personal lives (which in turn produces changes in the world and changes in our experience of life as the fellowship of humanity).

The fanning out begins today -- air currents on which on our "magic carpets" glide. 

We might say an intelligent Source, the Divine Force of Wisdom, guides the course.  How aware and collaborative we are with it is up to us.  The desire to know and understand is all that is needed.  The process is happening to everyone, whether one is cognizant and engaged with it or not.  Engaging it is a great adventure because life becomes richer, deeper, and more vibrant.  Life is more colorful and enjoyable.

So, with that backdrop, things begin to fan out and change.  Today, an "acceleration" of sorts is implied with Venus making its way to the degree of "wisps of clouds, like wings, streaming across the sky."  It's time for something to fly.  Time to see what's "on the wind."  Time for new opportunities.  Time to glide.

The speed of things may require very rapid adjustment or acclimation.  The Earth is discharging the energetic of "Indians making camp in new territory."  This can also bring issues with invading (personal or geopolitical) space, territory, or limits.

The Sun is discharging the degree of "a Spaniard serenading his senorita," telling us that action may be needed.  A situation may arise where we just have to take a chance and do the best we can. This energetic is more about taking action when the outcome is uncertain, moving beyond the fear of rejection because we don't know until we try.

Acceleration, adjustment, and action are streaming us along the magic carpet ride today.  Let's glide.

First Quarter Moon Phase: take steps; take action

Moon in Virgo

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

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

Skill: gain deep insight

True Alignments:  heightened creativity, orderly, clarity, layers and depths, restructured, beginnings, respecting privacy, finding missing pieces, productive, working together, seeing the benefit of things

Catalysts for Change:  uncooperative, not taking others into consideration, violations of privacy, self-sabotage, feelings of failure, picky, tricks/ruses, feeling closed or boxed in, self-centered, sharpness, criticism, surface appearances and fakeness, battles behind the scenes

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "a symbolic battle between swords and torches"

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

Saturday's energetics can be monumental in the insight that they bring.  This is primarily insight of a personal nature (personal growth).  Insight about other things comes after the personal understanding.  We begin to adjust things according to what we newly understand.

On Saturday, the Sun and Earth are activating Chiron.  The energetics involve cleaning up, clearing out, rectifying, cutting away, purging, releasing.  You might say our lives are being manicured, as the Sun is discharging the energy of "a well-kept public park."  It endeavors to fix things up and make them "spiffier" (which in our terms means a richer experience of life, liberty, and happiness).

The Earth is discharging the Sabian symbol of "an x-ray photograph."  Sabian symbol writer Lynda Hill describes this precisely with the term "penetrating insight."  We see straight through things to the core of them.  Many things are revealed when a planet comes to this degree of the zodiac.

The Sun and Earth are making aspects with Chiron, which is located at the energetic of "the purging of the priesthood."  Chiron is the healer of wounds and the teacher of knowledge, which in combination brings about wisdom.

Venus shines brightly on Saturday, discharging "a new continent rising out of the ocean."  Once again, we are blessed with the potential for epic possibilities for the future.  What is arising from emotional depths?  What seeks manifestation in your life?  What is sparking?

The beautiful potential of this day is worthy of a stand-alone report -- one that is not within a combined weekend report.  One day at a time, one step at a time, one thing at a time today.  Keep in mind the first two paragraphs of this transmission:

Saturday's energetics can be monumental in the insight that they bring.  This is primarily insight of a personal nature, relating to the growth of our souls.  Insight about other things comes after the personal understanding as we adjust to what we understand.

On Saturday, the Sun and Earth are activating Chiron.  The energetics involve cleaning up, clearing out, rectifying, cutting away, purging, releasing.  You might say our lives are being manicured, as the Sun is discharging the energy of "a well-kept public park."  It endeavors to fix things up and make them "spiffier" (which in our terms means a richer experience of life, liberty, and happiness).

Have a monumental Saturday, wise owls!

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

 Moon in Leo

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

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

Skill:

True Alignments:  liberty, leadership, admiration, respect for boundaries, prepared, integration of new insights and information, synchronicities, new approaches, spiritual inspiration, shining stars, abilities and efforts recognized

Catalysts for Change:  control issues, conflict over territory, difficulties with interpersonal relationships and communication, aggression, violations, naïve, propaganda, ruthlessness, base level instincts and impulses, cutting someone down, not listening, domination

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

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

If you missed yesterday's report and the Friday the 13th energetics portended today, it remains posted below.  Adding to that, here are other things to keep in mind:

1- GETTING A MESSAGE OR INFORMATION - The conjunction of Venus and Mercury (which is retrograde) attempts to deliver something important to us.  Since Mercury is retrograde, the message or information may come about due to something going "sideways."  If we can hold judgment, the insight we need is available.  Communications may become muddled or confused.  Patience is required with this type of astrological aspect.  The conjunction occurs at the degree of the New Moon in Taurus, our current lunar cycle, with the accompanying Sabian symbol of "a symbolic battle between swords and torches," so things are coming to light.  It is an aggressive dynamic, and, in this case, can prompt sharp tongues and ugly words.  We want to transcend this tendency, and keep things aligned with Light.

2-   STANDING UP/CLAIMING ONE'S "TERRITORY"/CLAIMING ONE'S SOVEREIGNTY - The Sun's discharge of the Indian warrior with the scalps is paired with the Earth's discharge of "crowds coming down the mountain to listen to one inspired man."  The messages and information that seek us today provides guidance and inspiration.  Both symbols carry themes of power.  It's "take charge" energy.

3- HUNG UP OR CAUGHT UP IN A PROBLEM OR WORRY - If you mind has been on overdrive, it is a good idea to try to suspend that today, and allow a higher power to intervene.  The Crescent Moon phase ends and the First Quarter phase begins at 1:02 pm ET/5:02 pm UT.  The struggle of Crescent phase fades somewhat.  Open up space for solutions.

4- REVISIONS TO VALUES - The messages or information that the Mercury-Venus conjunction offers may change what we feel is important -- what we truly value.  Things are seen in a new light.

5- TRAVEL DISRUPTIONS/ACCIDENTS - Take extra care while driving today.  Be present.  Give wide berth.  Road rage and risky driving is prevalent.  Take your time and step aside from the fray.

We are blessed to be under Mars' dissemination of the Sabian symbol of "an old owl up in a tree."  Up in a tree, transcending what's happening at ground level, may be very wise today because the magic carpet ride will twist and turn.  We come to a new place by the end of it, but it is certainly a wild ride with these energetics.  Align with light, and in the midst of it all, remember to find beauty.

Let's reclaim Friday the 13th from the shadows of darkness.  Let's turn it inside out and make it about luck and life, not about stuck in strife.

Crescent Moon Phase: persevere

Moon in Leo

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Tara, Goddess Who Guides; Kali, Goddess of Time (also said to be the "Destroyer" of Time but more accurately described as the Collapser of Time)

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

Skill: connect with nature

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "a symbolic battle between swords and torches" (enlightened to things)

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

All along the watchtower...

Today's report gives an overview of today's energetics, but it is tomorrow's -- Friday the 13th's -- energetics that I also want to cover.  It's a sort of "advance intelligence."

Today is the last day of the Crescent Moon Phase.  Since this lunar month is like a month-long Crescent Moon phase, we've had "double" the amount of Crescent energy over the last few days.  Crescent phases require perseverance, so double the amount of perseverance may be needed today on the last day of the phase.

We can transform "struggles" and worries into the opportunity or challenge to make things stronger and better.  That's what happens when we persevere through Crescent Moon phase.  It is the "hardest" phase, but it is the phase that proves the mettle.

Primary themes today are:

1- THE TALENTS OF THE SOUL MADE MANIFEST:  The Sun discharges the degree of23 Taurus: "a jewelry shop filled with the most magnificent jewels."  The people I have known who were born when the Sun was at 23 Taurus are brilliantly talented.  This energetic is truly a gem, and it is in effect all day.  The treasures within us can be found and brought forth. 

2- REINVIGORATE SELF OR PROJECTS:  Venus is at work today to help us remember who we really are and help us revitalize ourselves along that line.  This works nicely with the Sun's discharge of the magnificent jewels of the soul.

3- PERCEIVED FAILURES REVISED - A theme of seeing things with which we think we have failed emerges with a different perspective today.  Time has a way of doing this.  Was it a failure or a step in the process of something bigger?  Is it "time" for a change or a new approach?

4- COLLAPSING SPACE-TIME LIMITATIONS AND COMBINING THE PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE INTO ONE REALIZATION:  Nothing big there, right?  It is really quite simple.  It means the past, present, and future come together to help us see and understand a clearer course.  Insights, integrations, and epiphanies occur.  This dynamic comes courtesy of the Black Moon moving to the LAST degree of Libra: "three mounds of knowledge on a philosopher's head."  The Wisdom Goddesses instruct with an alternate image: "a thinker collapses space and time to combine the past, present, and future."  The Black Moon moves to 30 Libra at 11:14 am ET/3:14 pm UT.

5- OLD OWLS UP IN TREES (or all along the watchtowers) - Mars retrograde switches to discharging the energetic of 5 Sagittarius, "an old owl up in a tree."  A window of wisdom opens for humanity through May 17.  What is old hat for us?  Practicing the skill of being like a wise old owl up in a tree.  We go inside the tree (ourselves) to the place of clarity and wisdom, observing what is happening and staying firmly grounded with Gaia Sophia via the roots of the tree (ourselves).  This energetic is activated at 11:52 am ET/3:52 pm UT.

A parliament of wise owls is spread out all over the world (all along the watchtower).  This is what we are watching:

Tomorrow is Friday the 13th, an Illuminati temptation.

Tomorrow, Venus and Mercury (which is retrograde) will make conjunction at the degree of the Taurus New Moon, "a symbolic battle between swords and torches."

Tomorrow the Sun will discharge the same degree where Mercury stationed retrograde, "an Indian warrior riding fiercely, human scalps hanging at his back."

Tomorrow begins the First Quarter Moon phase, the time of stepping out and taking action, in the natural (magical) cycles of the Sun and Moon.

When we add all of these up we have a recipe for drama and lots of it: dramatic events, dramatic interpersonal interactions, dramatic communications, dramatic double crosses and backstabs, dramatic conflicts, dramatic demonstrations, and a higher potential for dramatic false flags/rituals.

The Illuminati's power for manipulation is quickly waning, and most of what they do in the darkness now only comes to light faster.  I am not saying they will make a move tomorrow.  I am saying they would see an opportunity (a natural energetic alignment) to exploit or rescue a crumbling agenda.  Try as they might, it ultimately will not work.  It's the might of light now.  Their days are over.

Today we "load in" a heavy measure of grounding with Gaia Sophia.  We want to spend as much time as possible outdoors.  We want to maintain a good connection.

All along the watchtower wise owls kept their view.

Crescent Moon Phase: persevere

Moon in Cancer/Leo 5:32 pm ET/9:32 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:  persevere

True Alignments: outlets for emotions, satisfaction, allowing time, braving or weathering a storm, determination, mission, rising above something through spiritual awareness, guidance, hitting the mark, encouraged, willingness, confidence in the cycles of life, group efforts, peace

Catalysts for Change:  exploiting situations, warring, angry outbursts or explosions, deep sadness, worrying, inconsolable, feeling lost, unacceptable, attempts to intimidate, missing the mark, hopelessness about the future, hardship

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 worries and challenges; transcending the collapsing control paradigm)

This lunar month, the month that began with the New Moon in Taurus on May 6, is like a month-long Crescent Moon phase. 

In the parallel of the cycle of the growth of a plant from a seed, Crescent Moon phase is the time when the seed that has "popped open" in the soil makes its way through the darkness, heading for the surface and into the light of day. 

Crescent phase is the journey to break through to another place of existence (or state of being).

It is the most challenging time of the cycle.  Many give up on the hopes, wishes, dreams, intentions, and goals they set last lunar month, the month that began with the New Moon in Aries (the first sign and the first month of the new solar-lunar year, April 6 - May 5). 

We can easily forget that the seed will not grow or ever have the opportunity to flower if the seed had not made its way through the darkness of the soil in which it was planted.

The seed understands that it is only natural to go through a brief time of darkness before it reaches the light.  It operates, without question, not on faith, but on the full understanding of the process .  No leap of faith is required when one understands the way nature works: plant and water a seed, provide sunlight toward which it can aim, and it will break through the surface to grow.

The same is true for us.  Crescent phases challenge us.  Difficulties, worries, and obstacles can create seemingly-insurmountable walls.  The tendency to struggle can easily set in.  And then we give up.  The magical dreams for the new year wither.

If we give up now on anything that we hoped, wished, dreamed, or intended for our future, we abandon wisdom.  It is NATURAL to feel a sense of struggle and even despair right now because we are in the metaphysical time when Spirit asks us to believe -- not to have faith, but to BELIEVE.  We know the way a plant grows.  We know the cycle.  So how hard is it to believe?

It can be very hard when you are part of a traumatized species that has unlearned that it too is a part of the natural cycles of the Earth.  We have mass Stockholm Syndrome with the Archons, our perpetrators.

However, like the seed breaking through the soil to the light of day, we are throwing off the dark archontic influences and transcending.  We will become beanstalks, sunflowers, roses, oak trees, willows, bamboo, and great pines- human style.

Do not give up.  The mission for Crescent phase is to persevere.

To help, and to navigate through the soil today, here are the primary energetics in effect:

1- SUN: "a white dove flying over troubled waters" (rise above worries and troubles)

2- EARTH: "hunters shooting wild ducks" (aggression, hyper-masculinity)

3- VENUS: "a man with a rakish silk hat muffled against the cold braves a storm" (be determined, weathering emotional storms)

4- MERCURY (RETROGRADE): "a woman airing an old bag through a sunny window" (airing and clearing out; the Sun was just here - what does this image look like to you today?  Does it look like it did a couple of days ago when it was activated?)

5- BLACK MOON: "mankind's vast enduring effort to reach for knowledge transferable from generation to generation" (knowledge, creating something lasting; this is the last day that the Black Moon will discharge this degree.  Tomorrow it moves to the last degree of Libra, much to the relief of those with the Sun, Black Moon, or Chiron in Aries or Libra.  Almost there, ya'll.)

6- JUPITER: "a family tree" (Jupiter stationed retrograde yesterday.  During its retrograde it strengthened real, true traditions - traditions based in harmony and alignment with harmony and the value of the human experience.  Our roots run deeper.)

The magic carpet ride of the Solar-Lunar Year of 2016-17 has only just begun.  It promises adventure.  Don't bail out on it now under the perceived struggle that is part of the energy.  Hold on tighter and remember that a Higher Power has a dream for us.

Crescent Moon Phase: persevere through challenges

Moon in Cancer

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

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

Skill: see developments/develop something

True Alignments: co-existence, following instincts, seeing Oneness, understanding one's values/value system, facing things, allegiance to a higher ideal or inalienable right, catching the finer details or going back to understand the details of something, return to love, the ability to respond, bravery

Catalysts for Change:  emotional eruptions, going over the top, doing something only because others expect it - not because one wants to, inability to innovate or improvise as conditions develop, robotic-like emotional responses, the extremes of automation, meddling, personal agendas that go against group efforts

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

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the magic carpet of Oriental imagery" (transcending issues and challenges, rise of the Second Renaissance)

What develops today?  It could be very interesting.

Today's energetics follow these themes:

1- IMPORTANT THINGS POINTED OUT - The Sun is discharging the energetic of "a moving finger points to significant passages in a book."  Things that we may have missed, overlooked, not understood, underestimated, or undervalued are shown to us.  The key element here is that things are shown TO us, as in by something or someone else.  You may be the one to point something out.  A Divine Hand is at work, so we follow our hearts (which are also our minds, because the two share the same types of cells - neural cells - and are ALWAYS interconnected.  The agenda to disconnect them or make us believe that they are not connected is failing.).

2- STAGES AND PROCESSES - As things are pointed out today, we see how things are being re-worked under the massive retrograde factor of several of the planets.  When planets are retrograde, they re-work things.  We see how things take time to develop or go through various processes before they are finished or resolved.  We see that the best foundations are laid when we allow the time for the processes of development.  Mercury retrograde is re-working things the fastest right now, and this will be in effect until May 22.

3- CHOICES or DECISIONS - The Earth is discharging the energetic of "obeying his conscience, a soldier resists orders."  In general, this symbol involves a change-up of the status quo.  We may feels at odds with "the rules" or an old way/perspective/belief.  This energetic aligns with integrity and higher callings.  Consider the consequences if you find yourself as the soldier in this image today.  Do what you feel is right.  Be true to thy self.  Express yourself with dignity.

4-OPPORTUNITIES AND POSSIBILITIES CONTINUE - The Sun-Mercury re-conjunction has a few degrees in the sky being activated and re-activated in quick succession right now.  Mercury retrograde discharges the energetic that the Sun activated last Sunday (May 8): "a new continent rises out of the ocean."  It's epic, and the times are certainly so.  Many people are under the false assumption that things can't develop properly or beneficially when Mercury is retrograde.  However, new things (opportunities, options, alternatives, directions, etc.) often cross our paths during Merc retro.  In order to re-work things, sometimes something new needs to be introduced.  It may be fleeting, but it will serve the purpose of making things better.

The Moon will oppose Pluto between 1:51 and 7:00 pm ET/5:51 and 11:00 pm UT.  During this time, anything from the four themes above could dramatically stand out for us.  The aspect involves 1) freedom from something that has blocked, bound, or controlled us, 2) nurturance of beginnings or new developments, and 3) the desire for satisfaction.

We ride on the adventure that is our lives today, seeing what develops.  What all could the day hold?

Crescent Moon Phase: persevere (through challenges)

Moon in Gemini/Cancer 1:25 pm/5:25 pm UT

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Tara, Goddess Who Guides; Dhumavati, Goddess Who Sorts and Winnows; Chinnamasta, Goddess Who Expands (Blows) the Mind; Shodashi, Goddes Who Aligns Us With the Highest and Best; Matangi, Goddess of the Wind; Kali, Goddess of Endings and Beginnings (whew!)

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

Skill:  catch possibilities

True Alignments: team work, honesty, ability to be happy for others, planning, new opportunities, courage, curiosity, things revealed, solving problems or mysteries, taking the time to communicate things that are important, seeing and valuing the essentials, sense of adventure, a rush or thrill

Catalysts for Change:  jealousy, breaking rules, blaming someone else or throwing someone under the bus, cowardly, lack of growth, blocking the truth, miscommunication, cover ups, not using good sense, filling a void with material objects, saying things that go too far, arguments, turning dark or sinister

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

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

Today, the skies around us on our magic carpet ride light up brightly with the Sun and Mercury making conjunction at the degree in the sky of the Sabian symbol "wisps of clouds, like wings, streaming across the sky."  The ride speeds up today, so we will hold on!

Ideas, opportunities, and possibilities are whizzing right by us, streaming through the air.  Since we are "airborne," so the speak, this solar-lunar year, we can reach right out and grab them.  The conjunction of the Sun and Mercury make them brilliant ideas, opportunities, and possibilities.  These range from the most subtle (cloudier) to the most pronounced (clearer).

The pace or speed of the day is rapid, and we often feel like we are being pushed, propelled, or driven forward.  Spirit is streaming the clouds and the magic carpets across the sky.

If you need an answer, option, direction, or anything of this sort, send it out into the field of consciousness -- the "sky of the magic carpet."  Something should bounce back to assist.  Since Mercury is retrograde, most likely this will be a revision of the way we think about something that enables us to see the answer or possibility.

If anything, we want to feel what is "on the wind" or "in the air" today.  What does your gut tell you?  We can "super-humanly" amplify our instincts and intuition at any time we wish, but today's energetics favor and support this sort of thing.

Also, under today's energetics, some things will ricochet today.  This is particularly true of anything that developed or was in play on March 23, 2016.  These things return for re-examination.  (This was the Full Moon phase of last cycle - the Aries lunar month).

While it is usually a good idea to slow down under these types of dynamics, the conjunction of the Sun and Mercury (even when Mercury is retrograde) has a speed unto itself and there is not much we can do about it.  The energy takes us where we need to go.  These are Gaia Sophia's streams of consciousness, so we merely follow along and enjoy the ride, attuning with her perspective.  She would very much like us to enjoy the Ride of Rectification.

In fact, today her perspective is of "a woman drawing aside two dark curtains that closed the entrance to a sacred pathway," as the Earth is discharging this energetic. 

Several of the Wisdom Goddesses have had something to say with this report.  It's almost too much to catch.  This mirrors the whirlwind energies today.

Gaia Sophia has something to teach us today.

Please refer to the True Alignments and Catalysts for Change above for specific themes on our magic carpets today.  These are the threads that form the picture or design on our carpets of consciousness.

Notes:

Potential for geophysical events is higher today.

The exact conjunction of the Sun and Mercury is 11:13 am ET/3:13 pm UT, but is in effect all day with the wave motion of the energy.
