Third Quarter Moon Phase: revise, realign

Moon in Taurus

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Dhumavati, Goddess Who Sorts and Refines

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will): Kathe, God of the South

Skill: listen to your heart

True Alignments: perseverance through obstacles, seeing the glass half full, reassurance, compromise, enhancing the best qualities, choices, building on what has been established, thinking twice before disclosing or revealing, getting back to nature, inspiration, creating works of art, the beginning of opportunities being presented

Catalysts for Change:  selfish, fooling and foolish, fears about capability, ageism, challenges with "putting oneself out there," narrow-minded, clouding or shrouding a bigger picture, propaganda, cults of personalities, hyper-focused on current events and taken on an emotional roller coaster (don't stare at the darkness too long), immobilized

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "a very old man facing a vast dark space to the northeast" (facing things)

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

What does your heart tell you today?

The heart's guidance is important today, as there are energetics in effect that tend to induce DRAMA, RITUAL, AND THEATRE. 

The Earth is located at the degree of "a masked figure performs ritualistic acts in a mystery play."  Venus is discharging the energetic of "American Indians perform a ritual to the Sun."  And Saturn will move to "a theatrical representation of a golden goddess of opportunity."

With these, we are aware that some things easily appear not as they seem.  We look behind the scenes of the drama, ritual, and theatre to see what is actually happening.  We see the actual "gold" or value or validity of things, situations, and circumstances.

Each of us is a player in the grand narrative, that is being written in real time.  The question is:  In which narrative are you cast?  What story are you living?  Is it aligned with the narrative of the rise of humanity?  Is it aligned with personal and collective liberation?

"A show" is certainly being put on to redirect our focus onto heartbreak, loss, and grief for humanity.  Masked figures are performing to lead us astray -- away from golden opportunities for life, love, and joy.

It is important to feel our feelings as terror and violence abound.  The Black Moon in Scorpio can take us heavily into the darkness of Scorpio's Underworld.  The Moon in Taurus, Scorpio's opposite, strongly reinforces this energetic, and will do so until the Moon moves into Gemini tomorrow.  And, the Sabian symbol or energetic frequency for this Third Quarter Moon phase is "a widow at an open grave."

I report these not to emphasize the sadness, but to help us understand that the particular combination of energetics right now would naturally elicit feelings of grief and loss even if the level of terror was not happening.  When a new trauma occurs, it builds on old traumas.  Old traumas are often triggered or re-experienced.  We are processing the grief and sorrow of our lives.  This is no easy feat.

But it does signify a turn, because as we process the feelings, they no longer have a hold on us.  Soon, much that we no longer need to carry with us will be purged.  And that is a good thing because there are many golden opportunities ahead.

The masked figures of the cabal that are being unmasked are attempting to have us believe otherwise.  But when masks are taken down, healing occurs.  Healing is what is happening.

Mercury moves to the degree of "after a heavy storm, a rainbow."  We know that there are golden opportunities after a storm.  Release from stresses and worries of the mind come with this energetic.  Answers and information can come at any time to end any internal "heavy storms."  Seeing the good or the blessings in our lives often helps.  Those things are there, even if we do not feel like they are.

UPDATING, NEW APPROACHES, and REFRESHMENT are indicated today with the Sun discharging "an old-fashioned conservative woman is confronted by an up-to-date girl."  Indeed the times are changing.  This energetic wants to free us from things that are taken as given.  Anything we want to change about ourselves (including but far beyond the conception of appearances and images) is supported by the Sun today.  We may be faced with a choice, likely about something from the past that continues to have a hold.

I conclude as I began:  what does your heart tell you today?  Let's listen carefully and follow.

Note:  Saturn is retrograde (appears to move backward) until August 13, and will station direct (appears to move forward once again) at the degree of the "golden haired goddess of opportunity" energetic on August 13.  Saturn will not make it to the next degree until August 30, so we will have many golden opportunities that will cross our magic carpet ride until then.  How lucky.

Disseminating Moon Phase: communicate, share

Moon in Aries/Taurus 11:38 am

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom):  Dhumavati, Goddess Who Sorts and Winnows; Shodashi, Goddess Who Aligns With the Highest and Best

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will/Desire): Kathe, God of the South

Skill: take heart; take a leap of faith

True Alignments:  tapping into a higher perspective, facing grief or loss, the test of time, ancient knowledge, family heritage or ancestry providing information, balance, connected, discoveries, creating structure

Catalysts for Change:  stuck, boxed in, misunderstandings, frozen in a trauma response of fear/hopelessness, untapped potential, losing touch, indecisive, fear of taking a chance, going backward, envy, in-filling, edgy

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "a very old man facing a vast dark space to the northeast" (facing things)

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

Take heart, wise owls.  No matter how things appear to be, all roads lead to liberty.

As the concerted effort to maintain a pervasive state of trauma response within the collective of humanity continues, we attend to the wisdom of the Sabian symbol for this solar-lunar year ("the magic carpet of Oriental imagery) and transcend it.  We rise above it, knowing that what we truly are seeing are the death throes of a power and control monster system that has enslaved the hearts, minds, and souls of humanity. 

That system is coming to an end, struggling to siphon as much energy as it can to stave off the inevitable.  The system feeds on energy.  Fear, despair, sadness, hopelessness, powerlessness, grief, and loss are favorites.

Let's feed our energy into the construction of Second Renaissance (the return of wisdom and balance), and the knowledge of a brighter future in process instead of feeding the machine.  It is hard to do.  But if we think about it for what it is, being tricked and duped and "hovered," we can disengage from it much more easily (and quickly).

Today's energetics involve:

1- TAKING A LEAP OF FAITH, especially with situations that have been in place and seemingly rock solid for a long time.  The Sun is discharging "rock formations tower over a deep canyon."  This frequency of energy makes going back (backward, back in time, back to business as usual, etc.) very challenging.  The energetic also tends to show us where we may feel backed into a corner or in need of decisions.  Taking a leap of faith is often the solution when this frequency of energy is in effect.

2- MIXING AND REARRANGING - Venus discharges the energetic of "a chemist conducts an experiment for his students."  Putting things together in different ways and putting new and different things together produces a different outcome or arrangement.  It's alchemy.  Expanding the field and putting options that we immediately dismissed or could not fathom being possible should be considered.

3- RESTORING BALANCE, especially with our physical bodies if they have been neglected, comes with Mercury at "totally concentrated upon inner spiritual attainment, a man is sitting in a state of complete neglect of his body."  Listening to our bodies is wise, and connecting with the beauty of Mother Nature, Gaia Sophia, rapidly restores balance.

Though in many ways we are very much like the "very old man facing a vast dark space," we understand that the darkness is being faced, but we do not remain in that void.  Instead, we look to the vast, untapped potential that can be extracted from that void.  It is the stuff of life -- of Creation.

We do not accept that the "new normal" of fear that is trying to be forced upon us.  We see above and beyond, to the truth that darkness is actually abating.  It is always darkness before the dawn.  Dawn rises.

(Note:  The Moon makes opposition with the Black Moon between 4:30 and 6:30 pm ET/ 8:30 pm and 00:30 am UT.  Shadow sides are projected outward and onto others right now while the Moon is in Taurus.  Those with the Sun, Chiron, or Black Moon in Taurus or Scorpio, you are under renovation and whatever is happening is leading you toward a massive rebirth of who you are.)

Disseminating Moon Phase: share, communicate

Moon in Aries

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Dhumavati, Goddess Who Sorts and Winnows

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will/Desire): Kathe, God of the South

Skill: watch for signs, synchronicities, and repeats for messages of guidance and information

True Alignments: see below

Catalysts for Change:  see below

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "a very old man facing a vast dark space to the northeast" (facing)

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

What messages will we receive today? 

During a lunar month that has been quite wild, even by magic carpet ride standards, there is no telling what we could learn before day's end.

Today, Mercury, the Planet of Messages, disseminates the energetic of "a carrier pigeon fulfilling its mission."  The mission of carrier pigeons is to deliver a message.

The delivery of the messages could be rather dramatic and can create a spectacle in order for us to see and hear them loudly and clearly today.  This comes with the (very active right now) Sun discharging the energetic of "a man formally dressed stands near trophies he brought back from a hunting expedition."  The energetic draws attention.  It can dominate.

The wonderful thing is that in Renaissance Consciousness (the "level" or dimension of human consciousness post-April 18, 2015, the date of the shift in consciousness toward sanity and true human nature), the energetic of the "man formally dressed stands near trophies.." shows what is real, no matter what type of display it presents or what type of package in which it is wrapped.  Nowadays, this energy just keeps it real.

Note that the symbol is of "a man formally dressed" next to his trophies.  The symbol does not say "a hunter formally dressed."  Thus, we take it that the man's endeavor or success was probably based primarily on the wisdom of his guide on his hunting expedition - the real, practiced, disciplined hunter.  Dropped in the middle of a natural, exotic environment, would the man have been as successful?

The point of this is displays of power that are superficially-based or based in any way against the highest and best for everyone involved, will show out today.  In Second Renaissance, the "dominance" that the energetic of the "man formally dressed stands near trophies..."  incites the "dominant" force of discernment.

There are a couple of other prominent themes and several aspects of the Moon with other planets today, so let's continue on with the delivery of the message.  Bear with me; it is long, so take what message or messages that fit:

6:49 am - 12:48 pm ET/ 10:49 am - 4:48 pm UT - ATTENTION IS DRAWN

The Moon squares Pluto during this time, delivering a message that draws our attention toward what we truly desire, what supports us, and which course to take.  The Moon will be discharging "fairies dancing in the setting Sun" during this period, adding to the effects of Mars now discharging "the King of the Fairies approaching his domain."  Intuitive levels are high.  The old dynamic would be tricking, deceiving, or deluding others or becoming lost in an illusion we have bought into.  A transformation from one way of thinking or believing into another is trying to occur.

12:49 pm - 7:41 pm ET / 4:49 pm - 11:41 pm UT - DIVERGANCE - CONVERGENCE; SILENCE - HAVING A VOICE

The Moon trines Venus at rather different dynamics: The Moon will be discharging "two prim spinsters sitting together in silence" (bringing separation), while Venus will be discharging "a volunteer church choir makes a social event of rehearsal" (bringing togetherness).  Both symbols involve the voice, whether they be silent or singing.   The "silent voice" part of the energetic may involve becoming quiet inside.  Also, sometimes things may seem to move apart before they or as they come closer together.

7:42 pm- 10:54 pm ET /11:42 pm - 2:54 am UT - REBIRTH, TRAILBLAZING, AND LIBERTY

The Moon conjuncts the Eris Point.  This is the favored degree of the Archons' Illuminati minions to forward their unraveling control agenda and perpetuate false flags (rituals), 21 Aries: "a boxer entering a ring."  The true nature of 21 Aries is about bringing truth and trailblazing the future based on liberty and justice for all.  This is the archetypal energy of Isis, Egyptian Goddess of Magic and Justice, as much as it is Eris, the Greek Goddess of Chaos and Strife.

The Illuminati continue to pull stunts, but they have not yet accepted that all of their stunts backfire now.  The fakeness shows through.  It was Eris, after all, who showed the gods and goddesses their folly by throwing the Apple of Discord inscribed with "To the fairest."  Let's be fair: the old ways are over.

10:55 pm - 2:18 am ET/ 2:55 am - 6:18 am UT - DARING AND SHARING

The Moon trines Mercury during this time frame.  The Moon will be discharging the energetic of "a woman in pastel colors carrying a heavy and valuable but veiled load" (sharing, unloading, easing burdens).  The daring part comes with Mercury discharging "a bareback rider in a circus displays her dangerous skill."  This is a very potent combination.  Much could be revealed.  What is underneath is important.  Great courage is available.  The curtain is pulled back.

2:19 am - 4:19 am ET/ 6:19 am - 8:19 am UT - DOUBLES

Doubling back, double dealing, and double meaning come as the Moon makes its once-a-month conjunction with Uranus.  The conjunction occurs at 25 Aries: "a double promise reveals its inner and outer meanings."  We always want to take extra caution while traveling and remain "in body" and attentive when the Moon aspects Uranus.  We are more accident prone. Uranus can bring shocks and surprises, but it always works for the better, even if we cannot see it at the time.  In fact, it is often very hard to see a silver lining when the shocks and surprises of Uranus come about to rectify things for us.  We are looking twice and taking care during this time.

The Sun released a M1.9-class flare WITHOUT CME yesterday at 1:43 pm ET/5:43 pm UT.  This occurred at the energetic of "two lovers strolling through a secluded walk" (walking the path of love). 

The Sun released  an M5.5-class flare WITH CME Saturday at 1:31 am ET/5:31 am UT.  This occurred when the MOON WAS CONJUNCT NEPTUNE at the energetic of "an examination of initiates in the sanctuary of an occult brotherhood" (initiation).  This was the first M-class flare with CME since January 2, 2016 (see Oracle Report archive for that day here).  I will talk more about this, as the flares are quite significant in the collaboration between Gaia Sophia (the Earth) and Sabaoth (the Sun), in Gnostic terms.

That's quite enough for today, but stay tuned tomorrow, as I discuss how the Oracle Report turns "an examination of initiates in the sanctuary of an occult brotherhood" into "a fellowship of attendants collecting and repositing data and creative works in the sanctuary of Sophia."

Note:  Here is a trick and part of the magic spell that the cabal has been working using the anti-thesis of the Mahavidya Kali, sent in by a wise owl:

Full Moon Phase:  clarity, enlightenment

Moon in Pisces

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Dhumavati, Goddess Who Sorts and Winnows

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will):  Kathe, God of the South

Skill: hold-observe-examine

True Alignments:  faith, unified voices, spiritual retreat, building the future (building Second Renaissance), acceptance of self and others, patience, caring for the physical body, ability to weather storms, quiet confidence, relatable, togetherness, the present moment

Catalysts for Change:  afraid to join in or not feeling worthy of joining in, suppressing emotions, emotional outbursts, trying to rush or force things, testing others, pushy and pushing one's beliefs onto others, unable to relate, divide and conquer, loss of confidence, headaches

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "a very old man facing a vast dark space to the northeast" (facing)

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

Hold.

This is the word for the day.  In various ways, the "magic carpet ride" we are on during this astrological year comes to a stop - a pause, a hold today.  The dominant energetic "immobilizes."

The wisdom of the Sabian symbols (archetypal descriptions of the 360 frequencies/ harmonics/ degrees of energy), teaches us that resisting this force or trying to force things to move is futile.

The purpose of the "hold" is to enable us to examine something or things more clearly and process our feelings about it more effectively. The energy is heavily emotional, with 1) the Moon moving into watery Pisces, 2) the last day of the Full Moon phase, which brings things to the fullest expression and is oftentimes feverish, and 3) the fact that we are in the Cancer lunar month and Cancer is a water sign.  In astrology, water symbolizes emotions.

The Moon in Pisces brings strong emotions, but they tend to ride under the surface.  Pisces (especially the early degrees) does not like to show its emotions.  It would rather express them creatively or keep them private.  Vulnerability is keenly felt.  The desire to retreat into another world or leave reality behind is strong because Pisces is ruled by Neptune.  Ah, Neptune.  That is a longer story for another day.

The "hold" or "stop and observe" dynamic today comes primarily from the Sun discharging the energetic of 02 Leo: "under emotional stress, blood rushes to a man's head."

Wise owls practice the skills of holding, not reacting; watching, not engaging.  We hold, observe, and examine.

Within this, today there may be a generalized feeling of something being missing or feeling like one needs to seek something that is missing.  We are, all month long, facing "a vast dark space" -- the Creative Void.  It is easy to feel that there is a void or hole today.

But the "vast dark space" "holds" knowledge and power if we stop and look.  The Magic Carpet Ride comes to a stop and parks us right up to it.  In some way, the Void may evoke a fear.  Again, we do not want to react, especially from fear.  If today's energy becomes challenging for you, is there a fear behind what is happening?

As the Moon moves through Pisces, it builds toward astrological aspect with the degree of the New Moon in Cancer back on July 4.  The Moon will trine that degree overnight tonight at 3:15 am ET/7:15 am UT.  The energetic of 14 Pisces- "a family tree" is activated, telling us that GROUNDING is advised.  This means connecting to the Earth, Gaia Sophia, rooting ourselves like trees.  Our roots run deep.  The ancestry of humanity is strong.  Taking some time to gooutside and truly "be" with Nature is highly recommended today.  Sit next to a tree and envision.

Practice patience.  Hold.  Observe.  Examine.

Big hugs (holds) to everyone today!

Full Moon Phase: clarity, enlightenment

Moon in Aquarius

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Dhumavati, Goddess Who Sorts and Winnows, Bhairavi, Goddess Who Fortifies the Heart

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will): Kathe, God of the South

Skill:  evaluate sincerity; maintain center if trauma is triggered; look at may be going on behind the scene

True Alignments:  cleansing and cleaning, purging of pain, displays of love, reliance on inner self and inner strength, clear purpose and clear path, inner beauty, leading a charge, not too big to fail, release, personal authority and sovereignty, rest, straightening things out

Catalysts for Change:  battles over who is in charge, making a show or scene, pompous, tantrums and demands, self-aggrandizement, exploitation, power and control struggles, ignoring the needs of others, insincere, monotonous routines

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "a very old man facing a vast dark space to the northeast" (facing personal and collective truths, facing The Void)

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the magic carpet of Oriental imagery" (transcending difficulties and expanding one's vision of the future)

Behold the Spirit of Revelation!

Amidst the hyper-imposed, hairline precision of orchestrated chaos that is in effect, today the Sun discharges the last degree of Cancer - "a Daughter of the American Revolution."

Revolution is certainly in the air.  Liberty is rising from the ground of Mother Earth, Gaia Sophia, up.

At the same time, Father Sky, Thelete, is raining down a solid sheet of love, integrity, and all things good in order to restore balance (and sanity).

When we compress revolution and balance, we have a Divine Force for REVELATION.

This means anything that is personally or collectively holding us back - a belief, feeling, condition, circumstance, doubt, illusion or other thing that is rooted in feelings of unworthiness or feelings of meaninglessness are being busted up and faced.  This is the time for this to happen because the energetic theme for the lunar month is "a very old man facing a vast dark space to the northeast."  In the Full Moon phase of this cycle, we have the most possible light by which to see.

When something is revealed, it is freed.

As this develops today, we also have themes of:

1- CAPTURING OR GETTING OUR ATTENTION - Two planets are discharging very similar energetics, so there is double power involved.  Mercury is discharging "a pageant moving along a street packed with people."  Mars is discharging "a military band matches noisily through the city streets."  Given the current "climate" of the world, some type of public attack or scene or event would not be surprising.  The scale of it (as in the number of people directly and indirectly affected) could be quite large.

We know from experience that any time our attention is being diverted in a drastic or dramatic way, we look for what is happening that could be hiding or providing cover for a rouse (or a theft, especially of liberties and wealth).  We always ask From what may attention be being diverted? and Why now?

Recall that the Maker of Change (Uranus) is discharging "a double promise reveals its inner and outer meanings," so the potential to be scammed or swindled or fooled AND the potential to not be scammed, swindled, or fooled is quite high.

What is trying to get our attention today, individually and as a fellowship of humanity?

2 - DECISIONS AND PLANS - The Earth is discharging "directors of a large firm meet in secret conference."  When the archontic control program was at full power (prior to April 18, 2015), this energetic was used to forward agendas of the elite or of a certain few, without thought for those who would be affected (exploited).  This no longer works.

Now, this energetic favors collaboration with others to understand something, solve challenges, process feelings, and plan Second Renaissance (the way humanity experiences the world without archontic interference).

Any false flag operations (against life) that have been planned in secret will only result in the faster spread and progression of liberty.  All roads lead to liberty.

3- SINCERITY - Chiron is stationing retrograde (appearing to move backward in the sky) and has reverted back to the energetic of "the purging of the priesthood."  This one is self-explanatory in its literal meaning, but at a deeper level the symbol speaks to re-examination of levels of sincerity.  True motives behind people's actions and behavior are revealed (faced). 

This energetic penetrates to the core of matters.  It rids or cleanses us of something.  It facilitates us taking charge, and not needing someone else to provide spiritual sustenance (or a raison d'etre - a reason for living (apologies to French wise owls for not knowing how to make the circunflex electronically- I am aware of the controversy around it and think that the symbol should be retained).

4 - GIVING IT A REST - Venus is discharging "an evening lawn party of adults."  Traditionally, this is about taking a rest or taking time to relax with others, but there is a level of superficiality that has been imprinted with this symbol.  Wisdom teaches us that when this energetic is in effect, there is often pretense, envy, and ignorance of important matters. 

Superficiality" means shallow or not real, and shallow and not real is no longer supported.  Real structures and relationships based on something that is of true value are what is supported and built up. 

Still, the energetic does tell us that taking it easy in some way tonight will be beneficial.

Today, the fellowship of humanity, the daughters and sons of wisdom and will, rise to the occasion of revelation.  We rise alongside the Spirit of Liberty!

Full Moon Phase: clarity, enlightenment

Moon in Aquarius

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Dhumavati, Goddess Who Sorts and Winnows

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will/Desire): Kathe, God of the South

Skill:  find commonality

True Alignments:  heartfelt revelations, persistent/not giving up, leap of faith, quiet time, pressing on, clear cut, the flow of information, feelings of home, welling or coming up, open to messages, paths opening, seeing what is most valuable to us in life

Catalysts for Change:  exclusion, taking or doing something the longer or harder way, too much detail, judgment of failure, picky, too much noise or information, obsessions, not taking time to reflect or relax, suppression of emotions, comparing or judging self against others, manipulation of currency or markets

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "a very old man facing a vast dark space to the northest" (facing)

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

Today's energetics build toward cutting through the extraneous or the obstacles and getting straight to it.  So I will endeavor to do that.

Today begins with a sort of "birth" of something potentially quite precious and inspirational. Interestingly, this "birth" or beginning of something may come about from a forced choice, judgment, or comparison of things that are very much the same.  This comes as the Sun disseminates the energetic of "a Greek muse weighing twins in golden scales."

It would be rare for twins to be born the exact same weight, but the symbol expresses the notion of "sameness" with the term "twins."  So the teaching that is offered is to look at the commonality between things if having to weigh one way or thing against another.  We may come to realize that the two things are very much the same, and thus imbalance can be remedied.  This energetic is highly esoteric and hard to get one's head around, so thinking about things with a "softer mind" in order to grasp its teaching is the method to use.

It may help to take the position of Mercury into account with this, as it gives us the "prequel" to the "twins' birth," as it discharges "cherub-like, a human soul whispers, seeking to manifest."

(The combination could also refer to the concept of soul mates or twin souls as part of the story today.)

Adding to the theme of muses providing inspiration, the Moon will oppose Venus at the degree of "during a silent hour, a man receives a new inspiration which may change his life."

The inspiration or messages may come via symbolism, signs, synchronicities, intuition or gut instinct because the Earth is discharging the energetic of "a woman reading tea leaves."  All that is needed is the will and desire to receive.  All that it takes is being open and observant and practice.

To navigate the field of symbols, signs, synchronicities, intuition, and gut instinct, the wisdom of our experiences should be taken into account.  Mercury the Messenger, which is relatively fast, also discharges the energetic of "an old sea captain rocking on the porch of his cottage" today.  So reflection on the past is part of this.

The energetics today rock and swing.  Not only does Mercury have the "sea captain rocking," but Venus is discharging "children on a swing in a huge oak tree."  This is movement back and forth - between "two scales" perhaps, as in the "Greek muse weighing with a golden scale."

By day's end, the back and forth resolves, as the Moon opposes Mercury at the Sabian symbol of "a train entering a tunnel."  The energetic of "twos" unites into "one" - one answer, one direction (forward).

Cutting to the end, we see that today holds potential for transformative experiences.  Transformation means changing from one state of being to another.  Minds, bodies, feelings, souls, spirits, hearts, beliefs, projects, energy, LIVES are changed -- they turn into something else.  Something golden, perhaps?

(P.S. In Greek mythology, there were nine muses or sisters who were the daughters of Zeus and Mnemosyne and presided over the arts of history, music, tragedy, religious music, epic poetry, lyric poetry, comedy, dance, and astronomy.  Do any of these call to you today?)

Full Moon Phase: clarity, enlightenment

Moon in Capricorn/Aquarius 11:12 pm ET/3:12 am UT

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Dhumavati, Goddess Who Sorts and Winnows; Bhairavi, Goddess Who Fortifies the Heart

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will and Desire): Kathe, God of the South

Skill: invoking or aligning with the feeling of (true) home

True Alignments: closing in on something or learning something, transcending the superficial/mundane/monotonous/unexceptional, adjustment and acclimation, achieving, fellowship and teams, end of a struggle, relaxation, childlike wonderment

Catalysts for Change:  evasive, avoidant, deceptive, escapism, putting up with something when one should instead move on, irresponsible and putting all of the responsibility on others, confusion, upsets, denial, political correctness run amok, gossip

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "a very old man facing a vast space to the northeast" (facing forward, facing the past, facing the truth, facing the self, facing off)

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the magic carpet of Oriental imagery" (transcending the control paradigm, transcending difficulties; receptivity and openness to new experiences, finding true value, weaving a new story/narrative)

The Moon builds toward Full today, building the speed and intensity of things and building them to full light or visibility. 

This Full Moon phase occurs at the energetic of 28 Capricorn and the Sabian symbol description of "a large aviary."  What does this symbol say to you?  It is a good idea to give this some thought, as this frequency of energy will be with us the 3+ days of the phase.

Typically, the "large aviary" brings a certain amount of mental confusion, flitting to and fro, and making a lot of noise about really nothing at all.  "Mental chatter" can be hard to turn off with this, and it can also bring insomnia (especially when it is in effect during a Full Moon phase because it is naturally harder to sleep during Full Moons).  Agitation and frustration with others easily occurs, as we attempt to sort through everything that is "coming in."  Too much (superfluous) information can be overwhelming.  This energetic heavily activates the brain, so if you feel like smoke is coming from your head from the rate of processing all of the information, turn down the noise.  Turn off the source of overstimulation.  Turn away from deceptions of the heart and mind that are attempting to burn you out emotionally, mentally, and physically.  Don't engage the hype.

Definitively, a "large aviary" is also a home for birds, even owls.  It is "large," so there is room to move, spread your wings, or maybe even go "out through the in door" of the cage, if one finds oneself in this type of "aviary."

Other energetic themes in effect today include:

1 - FINDING ALTERNATIVES - The Sun is discharging "an Indian girl introduces her college boyfriend to the assembled tribe."  This can challenge us and offer strength during trying or challenging situations.  We tend to be more judgmental when this Sabian is present, but it does "bridge" people, places, and things.  Things come back together/reassemble or they are offer other direction.  The "same old same old" does not fare well when the Sun is at this location.  The proof is in the pudding.  Truth will always show through with this energetic.

Endings, changes, and adjustments may be the sources that prompt the need for finding alternatives.  Venus follows up what Mercury started yesterday at the degree of "early morning dew," an energetic that symbolizes the end of a dark night and the fertility of a new experience.

2 - INNER FORTITUDE AND RESOLVE - Mercury is located at the degree of "children on a swing in a huge oak tree."  The oak tree symbolizes strength and wisdom gained through experiences.  The image of the swing reinforces the "flitting to and fro" theme and can exacerbate mood swings.  Indecision and going back and forth with something (especially in our minds) comes with this.  However, the image reminds us that innocence and play balance, revitalize, and relieve.  Rocking in a rocking chair can simulate the experience, and is a good way to process and smooth out the sheer amount of light and information that is upon us.

In advance of the Full Moon at 6:57 pm ET/10:57 pm UT, the Moon will prepare the way by making aspects to other planets.  Here is the breakdown, but please keep in mind that energy moves in waves and the following dynamics are in effect for a few hours before and after the time of exact aspect, so these are "guidelines in the timelines":

1:06 pm ET/5:06 pm UT - MOON SQUARE URANUS - Potential for changes, surprises, shocks, and accidents increases.  The Moon will be located at 25 Capricorn ("a leader of men wrapped in an invisible mantle of power") and Uranus at 25 Aries ("a double promise reveals its inner and outer meanings").  Double trouble, double crossing, two timing, and two facing comes with these.  At the highest octave, deception is revealed, and strength to maintain integrity is given.  We will want to be extra vigilant during this time.  If a trauma event occurs (as they being inflicted in rapid-fire succession now), there is likely a second side to it and most likely a false flag. 

If driving during this timeframe, make sure you are focused and "in body," as the energetics cause a natural degree of dissociation or feeling of disconnect from our bodies or ourselves.  We want to make extra effort to pay attention.

2:08 pm ET/6:08 pm UT - MOON SEXTILE CHIRON - Diversifying, moving on, and applying energy in other ways in order to facilitate healing comes with this set.  Chiron is discharging the last vestiges of "the New Moon reveals it is time for people to go ahead with their different projects."  What was intended, happening, or wished for at the New Moon phase (July 4-7) comes to fruition or fullest potential or is revisited now at the Full Moon phase.  The Moon will be at 26 Capricorn ("fairies dancing in the mist of a waterfall"), bringing a tendency toward denial and escapism, which actually shows us what needs diversification, moving on, and application in new ways.

3:12 pm ET/7:12 pm UT - MOON SEXTILE MARS - While the Moon still has "fairies dancing in the mist of a waterfall," Mars has "Indians making camp in new territory."  Since it is Mars, the advance into new "spaces" may be aggressive.  People will be drawing and crossing lines all over the place.  "Divide and conquer" is in full effect.  Let us not be caught off guard or caught wallowing in emotions, as the Full Moon of the Cancer lunar cycle is wont to have us do.  Emotions always run higher during the Full Moon of the Cancer lunar cycle because Cancer is a water sign (emotions), and, well, the Moon rules the sign of Cancer.  Dancing in the mist is much better than being caught in the undertow.  "Contain and maintain" is the mantra, as we lean toward the "bearable lightness of being" that accompanies the energetic of "fairies dancing in the mist of a waterfall."  Mars wants us to move our bodies, so dancing and other forms of movement will be very effective to mitigate all of the mental chatter, emotional waves, and generalized confusion.  Let's move out of the fugue.

Like the Moon and the tides, parasitic activity in the body increases during Full Moons.  Since it is the Full Moon of the Cancer (water) cycle and we are made up mostly of water, parasites have a field day.  We are not powerless victims.  We are becoming empowered thrivers.  It is a process, however, and patience with ourselves and circumstances is needed.

I think that is enough for one day, how about you?  This report is certainly an example of this Full Moon's "large aviary" with a lot of chatter and mental activity.  Winnow through and find what works for you.  Find the one voice - the one that resides inside and speaks to you from "home."

Happy Full Moon!

Gibbous Moon Phase: trust, connections

Moon in Capricorn

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Dhumavati, Goddess Who Winnows and Sorts

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will): Kathe, God of the South

Skill: bend like a willow tree

True Alignments: transitioning, patience, weathering, overcoming obstacles, perseverance, expressing feelings through creativity and respect, learning, following an ancient tradition or lineage, discipline, shift in point of view, unity of humanity, seeing beyond apparent darkness

Catalysts for Change:  power and control issues at the micro and macro levels, authoritarian, undisciplined, angry blow ups and confrontations, addiction to drama, greed, materialism, homogenous, powerlessness, brain washing and mind control, not letting go, restricted or held back

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "a very old man facing a vast, dark space to the northeast" (facing forward/facing off/facing self/facing The Void)

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

All roads lead to Liberty.

No matter what any given situation appears to be - no matter how sad, no matter how heartbreaking, no matter how disheartening, no matter how inhumanly twisted - it ultimately leads to the liberation of humanity.  It leads to liberation from the archontic infection.

This is a divine mission undertaken by higher spiritual forces, "backed up" by a contingent of humanity so that the true course of humanity is restored to its original, yet enhanced, capability.

The Wisdom Goddesses (aspects of Gaia Sophia - Mother Earth) and the Gods of Will (aspects of Thelete - Father Sky) wish us to deeply integrate this understanding: all roads lead to liberty.

The reason they wish us to understand this is because things are not making sense at all.  The reason behind this is because the collective of humanity is being intentionally triggered and traumatized to give up our will.  What we are witnessing is an attack, by parasitic/inorganic/alien consciousness, on our hearts.

The reason even further behind it is because said parasitic/inorganic/alien consciousness is rapidly losing its grip on the world and is going mad in the process.  Its rage is projected outward, in the form of chaos and strife.  We see a "mad dash" - desperate, end game actions of pulling out all of the stops at all costs - to attempt to hold on to control.

All of this is very strong today, as the energetics include feelings of:

1- BEING BOXED IN OR TRAPPED WITHOUT OPTIONS OR A WAY OUT, courtesy of the Sun at "a violent storm in a canyon filled with expensive homes."  We may feel that we have been pulled in deeply or cornered.  PRESSURE RELEASES AND CONFRONTATIONS accompany this energetic.  Things that have built up can come out explosively.  The best use of this vortex of energy is to create something instead of destroying anything.

2- REVOLUTION, courtesy of Venus at "a Communist activist spreading revolutionary ideas."  This certainly enhances the prevailing dynamic of people, places, and things facing off this month.  Issues related to power and equality are conscripted. Usually there are factors where someone or many feel like they have had enough.

3- UPHILL BATTLES AND STEEP CLIMBS THAT MAY SEEM INSURMOUNTABLE, courtesy of the Earth at "a mountain pilgrimage."  The Moon will conjunct Pluto in Capricorn, which is the sign that encapsulates a mountain pilgrimage, symbolic of a struggle or difficult ascent.  Capricorn energy can be exceptionally rigid, and this is definitely reinforced by the conjunction with Pluto that is building today and reaches exactitude at 9:25 pm ET/1:25 am UT. 

Wisdom teaches us that when things are this highly inclined toward steepness and rigidity (Capricorn), we seek the balance of Capricorn's opposite (Cancer).  WATER is the balancer today.  If you find yourself too tightly wound, uptight, emotionally uncontained, unbalanced, or rigid, immerse in a bath or shower or lake or pool or ocean or sprinkler or whatever you can find.  "Movement" or cleansing of emotions needs to occur.

Additionally, invoking the practice of being like a WILLOW TREE bending and swaying with the winds of change that are upon us may be helpful.

We remember that all roads, including "mountain pilgrimages," lead to liberty.

4 - NEW LIGHT OR NEW PERSPECTIVE, courtesy of Mercury at "early morning dew" (newness and emerging understanding) in aspect to Saturn at "the lamp of physical enlightenment at the left temple" (redirected).  This, in combination with the other energetics, highlights "the left" and action from "the left."  Left field, left wing, leftists, left a slide..

No matter how this manifests, all roads lead to liberty.

The Magic Carpet Ride of solar year 2016-2017 may require us to hold on as the currents are blowing with gale force today.  We know where it is all going.

Crescent Moon Phase/First Quarter Moon Phase 8:53 pm ET/00:53 am UT

Moon in Libra

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Dhumavati, Goddess Who Sorts and Winnows; Bhairavi, Goddess Who Fortifies the Heart; Kamala, Goddess of the Lotus

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will): Kathe, God of the South

Skill:  connect with the inner voice; unification, see deeper or greater meaning

True Alignments: layering or going through things in layers, ease, creative containment of emotions, background messages, signs and synchronicities, pleasant and pleasure, recognition satisfaction of needs, truth

Catalysts for Change:   perfectionism, masquerading, giving up or retreating, clichés, uncommitted, disregard/inconsiderate of the feelings of others, ungrounded or unmoored, taking all of the credit, narrow-minded, overpowered, denial, false flags

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month:  "a very old man facing a vast space to the northeast" (facing, face offs, tapping into The Creative Void, casting)

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

Well where were we when we were so rudely interrupted?

We were beginning the Crescent Moon phase, the time of perseverance.  During that Moon phase, the collective of humanity persevered through the beginning of the Archons pulling multiple trauma triggers (emotional, mental, and physical responses), which we could call "casting spells."  The dark magicians are hard at work at their evil chess game.

However, all of that is about to change today because:

1 - Mars finally moves to a new degree, beginning to discharge 25 Scorpio and the energetic of "an x-ray photograph" (seeing and understanding at a deeper level/seeing right through/penetrating something/insight/truth).  Mars has been discharging the energetic of 24 Scorpio, "crowds coming down the mountain to listen to one inspired man," since June 18 - a very long time for Mars to be at one degree because it slowed, stopped, and then started again at that degree (when it stationed direct there).  What was inspired then now has the power of x-rays, which are a massive amount of light.

2 - We now begin the First Quarter Moon phase time of stepping out of the past (or old cycles) and taking action.  This entire lunar month is like a month-like First Quarter phase (based on the cycle of the Sun).  It is the first of two months that are like month-long First Quarter Moon phases.  This means that we will have double the opportunity for tremendous change/shift out of the box or out of restrictions of the past.  We step out of our comfort zones.  First Quarter energetics move things.  It is a time of activity.  It is a time of green lights, or going ahead.

3 - We connect with our "inner voice" - the voice that tells us - with the Sun discharging the energetic frequency of "Venetian gondoliers in a serenade," the Earth that of "a hidden choir singing during a religious service," and Mercury of "a daughter of the American Revolution."  All of these involve the inner voice.  They also involve unseen assistance from higher realms and motivations of love. 

Things that occurred or developed between January 9 and February 7, 2016, are re-activated or brought forward or brought to light today (this was the Sabian symbol for the Capricorn lunar month, so themes and intentions from that time repeat).

4 - Mercury at "a daughter of the American Revolution" is making a square to Uranus today, the planet that "rules" revolution and change.  Uranus is at "a double promise reveals its inner and outer meanings," bringing out truth.  Truth is "ruled" by the planet Eris, which rules the sign of Libra, the sign that the Moon is transiting (moving through) today.  This is particularly in effect between 6:51 pm - 9:51 pm ET/10:51 pm - 2:51 am UT, when the Moon opposes the Eris Point.  The Eris energetic is the energetic that the Illuminati minions (neophytes in the ways of energy, capable only of mimicking the past) use for dirty deeds.  This is a significant juxtaposition of energies today.  It's future-shaping on a vast scale.  (Take extra caution while traveling or driving today, as this energetic incites reckless action and accidents.)

5- Last but not least on the list of why the chess game changes today comes about from the "move" or "play" of the Illuminati being revealed right here: 

The cabal will sacrifice a "queen."  The question is which queen (and is the queen a woman or a man)? 

This is the play; how many moves ahead, is open, but highlighted this month and during the Libra lunar cycle (September 30 - October 29, 2016).

The primary personal message today is to connect with and be guided by your inner voice and the truths that are being revealed to you. 

The primary collective message today is to unite our voices in support of truth and love.  Wise owls know that truth and love prevails.  What looks and feels like breakdown and devastation is actually rebirth -- renaissance.  The old way (control paradigm) is being winnowed away, churned to dust under the force of its own weight and the power of higher forces, which seem hidden, but are actually right alongside of us.  Legions, in fact.

We step out of the trauma response being triggered by the spells of insane magicians, remembering that the "Mother of the Human Revolution" is Sophia.  She is fully awake and empowered, collaborating with us to change the course of our personal and collective destinies.  It's in play.

"Wings Around the World" group meditation planned for July 15.

(Notes:  Over the weekend, Andrew was hospitalized.  He is ok, and hopefully will be discharged tomorrow.  Many thanks to wise owls sending love and light for his speedy recovery. 

Audio recording capability is still being restored, and will hopefully be rectified today with the "voice" energies in effect.

We persevere; we unite; we win

Sophia acousome.  Wisdom let us attend.)

Crescent Moon Phase: persevere

Moon in Leo/Virgo 6:41 pm ET/10:41 pm UT

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Dhumavati, Goddess Who Solves, Goddess Who Sorts and Winnows

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will): Kathe, God of the South

Skill:  release restrictions and become more

True Alignments:  clarity, allowing enough time for things to develop, descent of Spirit, completion and totality, nurturance, small beginnings, new ideas/thoughts/projects, the hero's journey and quests, supported, protected

Catalysts for Change:  exaggeration of perceived "failures,"  rushing things, theft, feeling that things are pointless/purposeless/hopeless, suppressing feelings and words, over-reaching, dissatisfaction, power and control issues, monotony that leads to stagnation

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "a very old man facing a vast dark space to the northeast" (facing)

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

We have an epic astrological day on tap.

What would you like to transform today?

The Sun makes opposition with Powerhouse Pluto to help us "throw off" what restricts us so that we can become something more.

Exact opposition between the Sun and Pluto occurs at 6:16 pm ET/10:16 pm UT, but the energetic has been building for three days.  The code of the Sabian symbols gives us insight into what the dynamic is trying to achieve. 

The Sun is discharging the energetic of "the seed grows into knowledge and life."  Pluto is still discharging the familiar energetic of "a girl surreptitiously bathing in the nude."  Face to face confrontations with ourselves and the world occur.

Since the Sun and Earth are always 180 degrees apart in astrology, this means the Earth is conjunct Pluto while the Sun opposes it.  In other words, the Earth aligns with Pluto.  The Earth aligns with Pluto and with humanity to reveal what needs to be revealed for us properly grow and develop.  Thus, we "bathe in the nude," and face naked truth.

Pluto is God of the Underworld.  When the Sun and Pluto electrically align, transformation from deep levels occurs.  It can have dramatic effects on the body, often leaving us feeling wiped out and fatigued.  It can drag us down.  Effectively, the Sun-Pluto opposition is like a Full Moon between the Sun and Pluto.  Full Moons bring things to their fullest point with the most light available, so we are designed to see things (mostly ourselves) very clearly. 

Full light can also be blinding.  Denial or turning away from something is tempting, but does not facilitate the "seed growing into knowledge and life." 

But before the Sun makes exact opposition with Pluto, Mercury already has (at 7:53 am ET/11:53 am UT today).  This prelude activates our minds.  We begin to churn and process what we are seeing and learning.  Mercury-Pluto oppositions often prompt us toward seeing and thinking more negatively, since Pluto is an underworld energy.  It is a set up, for sure, but actually only provides the backdrop and cognitive perspective to have the face to face confrontation with ourselves and with the truth of matters.  We have to be able to see in the dark somewhat in order to bathe in the dark (and become clean or new again), so to speak.

The Mercury-Sun-Pluto oppositions would be quite enough for one day for a human brain and body, but we also have another mega-aspect with Venus squaring off with Uranus.  From yesterday's report:

"VENUS SQUARES URANUS at 10:17 am ET/2:17 pm UT:  This produces changes within relationships, finances, and levels of comfort and security.  Just because it is a change, does not mean it is a "bad" change.  In fact, Uranus is the one planet that will put us where we need to be no matter what.  It really does work in our favor.

Venus is located at the degree of "a leader of men wrapped in an invisible mantle of power."  This symbol relates to a powerful infusion of Spirit.  We are "blanketed."  A great deal of protection comes with this energetic.  It empowers us to lead our own course.  This degree also rules "megalomania," and since Uranus is involved, reinforces craziness, so it may get a little wild.

Uranus is located at the degree of "a double promise reveals its inner and outer meaning."  Two-timing is uncovered with this degree of the zodiac.  Surprising things are learned about the truth of matters.  The sincerity or insincerity of one's words is shown...dramatic changes in relationships can occur.

Today's energies will move very quickly with Mercury and Uranus so active.  It is a good idea not to get stuck on one idea.  Anxiety, insomnia, and fears about changes are heightened with these.  Allow or even create space and room for things to change, and hold to the knowledge that Uranus always puts things in their best places.  Uranus often does this through shocks and surprises, so we understand to expect the unexpected to some degree."

So, wise owls, we want to be our wisest selves today.  As always, if the energetics begin to take over and overwhelm, step back.  Step back and into a tree and begin observing what is happening.  What are you seeing?  What are you feeling?  What is transforming right in front of you?

Could it be renaissance?

New Moon Phase:  begin anew; make a wish or set an intention or goal

Moon in Leo

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Dhumavati, Goddess Who Solves, Goddess Who Sorts and Winnows

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Wisdom/Will):  Kathe, God of the South

Skill:  shift perspective; seek cohesion

True Alignments:

Catalysts for Change:

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "a very old man facing a vast dark space to the northeast" (facing things even when we do not feel we are prepared to face them)

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the magic carpet of Oriental imagery" (transcending the past; shifts in perspective)

Today may feel very much like a puzzle.

The Sun is disseminating the energetic of "a man studying a mandala in front of him with the help of a very ancient book."  We work to see our way through, finding paths that lead to answers we seek.  This energetic refers us to the old sources of wisdom, and often points out which of those sources to consult in order to understand (or understand how to proceed).  We are intuitively guided toward it or it will "fall off the shelf" so we do not miss it.  If you are prompted to pick up a certain book or a method of divination (like tarot cards, etc.), by all means follow it.

We have two major astrological aspects building up today:

1- MERCURY CONJUNCT SUN at 11:24 pm ET/3:24 am UT:  This combination represents a new beginning with communications, thought processes, and beliefs.  The conjunction occurs at the "man studying a mandala" energetic, and Mercury is the planet that helps us study, since it rules the mind.  Messages from the Universe swirl like "wind inside a letter box" (The Beatles, Across the Universe).  Mercury is speedy, so things can happen very fast.

2- VENUS SQUARE URANUS on THURSDAY at 10:17 am ET/2:17 pm UT:  Though the exact astrological aspect does not occur until tomorrow, this energetic will be in full force both today and tomorrow.  This produces changes within relationships, finances, and levels of comfort and security.  Just because it is a change, does not mean it is a "bad" change.  In fact, Uranus is the one planet that will put us where we need to be no matter what.  It really does work in our favor.

The Sabian symbol energetics involved with the Venus-Uranus square are:

VENUS on Wednesday:  "a woman and two male castaways on a small island in the south seas."  This was the Sabian symbol for the Cancer 2015 cycle (July 15 - August 13, 2015). so things that were happening at that time may be revisited in some way.  It represents love triangles, difficulty choosing between all types of things, and getting away from something that is confusing.

-VENUS on Thursday: "a leader of men wrapped in an invisible mantle of power."  This symbol relates to a powerful infusion of Spirit.  We are "blanketed."  A great deal of protection comes with this energetic.  It empowers us to lead our own course.  This degree also rules "megalomania," and since Uranus is involved, reinforces craziness. so it may get a little wild.

-URANUS on both days: "a double promise reveals its inner and outer meaning."  Two-timing is uncovered with this degree of the zodiac.  Surprising things are learned about the truth of matters.  The sincerity or insincerity of one's words is shown.  With the "woman and two male castaways" energetic in effect, dramatic changes in relationships can occur.

Today and tomorrow's energies will move very quickly with Mercury and Uranus so active.  It is a good idea not to get stuck on one idea.  Anxiety, insomnia, and fears about changes are heightened with these.  Allow or even create space and room for things to change, and hold to the knowledge that Uranus always puts things in their best places.  Uranus often does this through shocks and surprises, so we understand to expect the unexpected to some degree.

Though perhaps puzzling at times, today offers us the opportunity for answers, understanding, and overcoming.  What does the mandala of today show you?

New Moon Phase: begin again; set intentions; make a wish

Moon in Cancer/Leo 12:29 pm ET/4:29 pm UT

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom):  Dhumavati, Goddess Who Sorts Things Out; Goddess Who Winnows

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will/Desire): Kathe, God of the South Direction

Skill: take action without hesitation

True Alignments:  brave, satisfaction, going ahead, open hearted, purposeful, taking position, the processes of development, forming structure, the resonance principle (like attracts like), little indulgences

Catalysts for Change:  close-minded, chasing, looking at the glass half empty, unreliable, instability, overdoing, irrational, powerlessness, fear of change, abandonment issues, lack of purpose

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "a very old man facing a vast, dark space to the northeast" (enlightenment of what has been done in the dark, facing the unknown, facing the self, facing the truth, facing off, transforming darkness)

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the magic carpet of Oriental imagery" (transcending the past, transcending the unraveling control paradigm, coming to a new world)

Today's report is abbreviated somewhat, as I will be recording the overview of the new lunar month later today.  Here are the highlights of what's in store for us this month:

1- out in the open - what has been done in the dark is brought to light

2- facing Off and Drawing the Line- we face all kinds of things: ourselves, the truth, reality and then draw lines (as in lines in the sand)

3- Russia

4- relationship issues solved or addressed (Grand Trine in water signs with Venus, Mars, and Chiron)

5- clarity about feelings, issues, and what we value

6- new endeavors or new ways of doing things supported; branching out

7- the voice of the people takes center stage

8- "the left" is activated (political left, left brain, leftists)

9- seeing right through things (deception, deeds, intentions)

10- relentless, resilient, strong

11- choices

12- divergence before convergence

13 - going against the norm (and one's own norm) and throwing things off our backs

14- an "initiation" of humanity into adulthood

15- double dealings, double crosses, double agents revealed

16- the winnowing or whittling down of things based on resonance or dissonance

We may feel in over our heads in some ways today, but this is a natural by-product of the shift into a new quarter or "season" on the Medicine Wheel.  Cancer is a cardinal sign, so it is a right turn in a new direction.  This is the first shift point since the astrological new year, the New Moon in Aries back on April 7th.  Things have been going one way and now evolve to a higher level.  The next shift comes with the Libra New Moon during October and the Capricorn New Moon during January.  These are the big turns during the year every year, so we want to be as flexible as possible right now.

But today is not a day to wait around on anything.  Venus is activating the energetic of "a young woman awaiting a sailboat."  Don't wait for a ship to come in.  Instead, carpe diem - seize the day!  The "vast dark space" of this month's energetic theme provides the Creative Void from which we can draw upon anything.  Aim high.

Balsamic Moon Phase: release, prepare to begin a new cycle

Moon in Cancer

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

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

Skill: open up; expand perception

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

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

The drama of this lunar month ends today, with the energetics favoring openness, willingness, focus, sincerity, discernment, and effort:

With an open heart, we discern our sincere will and desire.

OPENNESS AND STRENGTH is discharged by the Sun at the Sabian symbol of "one hand slightly flexed with a prominent thumb."  This energetic involves willingness to "extend" oneself or be open to vulnerability.  Flexibility and patience with circumstances and situations is often necessary.  We expand our perceptions, feelings, and beliefs to find a true course - our sincere will and desire.

FOCUS on the reality of situations comes with the Earth at the degree of "a fire worshipper meditates on the ultimate realities of existence."  This energy involves skill, facing fears or risks, and directing our intentions.  It also represents kundalini rising.  Our minds are powerful and belief becomes reality.  What are your beliefs right now?  Is there something you need to alter before the New Moon tomorrow?

DISCERNING SINCERITY AND TRUE DESIRE comes with Venus disseminating the energy of
"Venetian gondoliers in a serenade" and Mercury disseminating "a group of rabbits dressed in clothes and on parade."  It may be very hard to get the real story today.  We recognize the potential for displays, shows, and even false flag operations.

EFFORT, GOING THE DISTANCE, or BENDING OVER BACKWARDS comes later in the day when Mercury moves to the degree of "a small naked girl bends over a pond trying to catch a fish."  Generally, there is something we are trying to obtain or capture - a feeling or a particular outcome, etc. when this energetic is in effect.  These things may be rather elusive or hard to pin down.  Perseverance is called for on this last day of two lunar month's worth of the need to persevere.  We have come very far, and we won't give up now because tomorrow is a new day and a shift into an altogether different dynamic.

During the lunar month that is ending today, the strength and fortitude of who we truly are has tried to come forth.  Are we letting it?  Are we ready to actualize more of our potential and more of our collaboration with the Divine?  And are we ready for a turn in the direction of the magic carpet ride of 2016?

Ready or not, it comes tomorrow, but I think we are more than ready.  Release struggle today.  Release the feelings, outcomes, failings, and worry that you do not want to take with you into the next lunar cycle.  Focus on the reality of your will and desire and infuse it into the field of consciousness.  Our hopes, wishes, and dreams burst through the surface tomorrow, beginning to find their ways into the world.

Balsamic Moon Phase: release, prepare to begin anew

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:  keep it simple; recognize what is being taught

True Alignments:  loyalty, celebrations, the comforts of home, acknowledgment of what is important, addressing or redressing, observation, records and information, promises, childlike wonderment, blessings, application of knowledge and experience

Catalysts for Change:  demanding, bound to something and wanting release, overly needy of attention, intellectual arrogance, overwhelmed by complexity, unable to simplify, invasion of privacy, lost in translation, losing faith, radically anti human

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"

Get ready for the light.

Today the Sun reaches the degree of the Sabian symbol of "a Chinese woman nursing a baby whose aura reveals him to be the reincarnation of a great teacher."  This energetic directs us to the simplest answers, elements, or components of something.  This is a pure energy that speaks to something trying to take "birth" in our lives or come back into our lives, as in "reincarnating."   Personal revelations light up the mind when the Sun discharges this code.

In astrology, the Earth is always 180 degrees from the Sun.  When the Sun discharges the energetic of the "reincarnation of a great teacher" (12 Cancer), the Earth is always discharging the energetic of "a student of nature lecturing, revealing the little known aspects of life" (12 Capricorn).  You can see how the interplay is one of wisdom.  We interpret and translate information when the "student of nature lecturing" is activated.

The themes of unity (togetherness) and unification (the action of getting together) are strong today.  Venus discharges the energetic of "a priest performing a marriage ceremony."  The sanctity, loyalty, and commitment of all kinds of things, not just marriages or relationships, come into focus.  This Sabian symbol echoes the theme of preparing for a new beginning that comes with the Sun at the "reincarnation of a great teacher."  Also, we are in the Balsamic Moon phase, which directs us to release whatever we do not want to carry with us (physically, emotionally, mentally, energetically, spiritually) into the next lunar month.  We have until the New Moon on Monday to work with this.

Mercury concurs, as today it discharges the energetics of preparing for the new and releasing what has had its sunset (moonset) with "game birds feathering their nests" and later "two fairies dancing on a moonlit night."

I will be back for a separate report tomorrow.  If you capture a snapshot of Nature as she reveals wisdom today, please send it in.  We should get some good ones today!

Balsamic Moon Phase:  release, dream, prepare to begin anew

Moon in Cancer

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

Welcome to today's "show."

All of the world is a stage today, with the drama of this month coming to finale as we move through the Balsamic Moon phase and toward the New Moon on Monday, July 4.  Here are the characters and the roles they are playing on the stage today:

1- THE FOOL OR THE COMEDIAN:  Laughter is the best medicine today.  Finding the humor in situations that are challenging is absolutely the best way to handle the energetics today.  The Sun is discharging the energetic of "a clown caricaturing well-known personalities."  Lighthearted attitudes keep things moving along.  This symbol also asks if there is something that we should take more seriously.  There is potential for "masking" or exaggerating the truth.

2- THE PEACOCK:  Standing out or overlooked?  These issues come with the Earth at "pheasants display their brilliant colors on a private estate."  This energetic brings the theme of luxury, which can be many things unrelated to money.  What is truly luxurious to you?  With the Moon moving into Gemini, we are prone to seek out at least a semblance of the answer to that question.  Proceed with care, as there is always a caution of not being a "game bird" with this dynamic.

3- THE CAT AND THE MOUSE:  Mercury returns to "a cat arguing with a mouse," bringing a lot of to and fro, back and forth, and on and off.  The feeling of needing to justify something (one's position, cause, actions, feelings) is stronger.  Extra effort is often needed with communications in order for them to be clearly understood.  Imbalances are addressed with this energetic, especially imbalance with values.

4- THE HEN:  Venus is discharging "a hen scratching for her chicks" and the energetic of wanting to satisfy needs or wanting to have needs satisfied.  Devotion is an element of this frequency of energy.  If you have felt overwhelmed by responsibilities, a weekend that is in a Balsamic Moon phase (like this weekend) provides the opportunity to relax and recharge.  In a truly nature-oriented civilization, work and responsibilities would be minimized during Balsamic Moon phase because it is the time of release.  We "weed out" what we do not want to carry with us into the next lunar month.  We head into the mystic during Balsamic Moon phases.

And...later today, Mercury will move to the degree of "at a railroad crossing, an automobile is wrecked by a train."  This energetic favors the collective and the needs of the many over the needs of the few or the one.  Since the energetic of standing out in a crowd or being noticed and appreciated or recognized is in effect with the peacock/pheasants Sabian symbol, the tendency would be to further one's agenda, but this is not supported.  In other words, today is not a good day to ask for something like a raise.  "Collisions" of values and emotions occur with this energetic.  Uranus, the planet that rules accidents,  is not being aspected today, which would increase the potential for serious accidents.  However, extra care should be taken when traveling.

That's all for today, wise owls.  Happy Friday!

Balsamic Moon Phase: release, dream, prepare to begin anew

Moon in Taurus

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom):  Bagalamukhi, Goddess Who Dissolves Illusions; Shodashi, Goddess of Beauty and Goddess Who Aligns With the Highest and Best; Matangi, Goddess of the Wind

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

Skill: see and learn

Catalysts for Change:  rushing, missing essential details, unfinished, tricking people, manipulation (this is very strong today), seeking perfection, projection of one's feelings onto another, fears and shadow sides operating, distance, worry, feelings of failure

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "a woman activist in an emotional speech dramatizing a cause" (inner fortitude projected outward)

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

Where we you and what were you doing February 5/6, 2016?

Whatever was happening at that time now comes to the furthest point or expression.

This comes courtesy of Venus and Pluto.  On February 5/6, Venus made conjunction with Pluto (or came to the same place in the sky).  Today Venus makes the opposition with Pluto (or comes to the exact opposite place in the sky).  When planets line up like this, the electric universe gets to popping!

By the Laws of Nature, this means that what was happening (imprinting) back then resurfaces, returns, repeats, or recurs in some way now.  It is like the Full Moon phase of Venus and Pluto, like a Full Moon between the Sun and Moon.  It is the same dynamic.

What does this "Full Moon" of Venus and Pluto offer?  To learn this, first we look back to the Sabian symbol for the degree of the conjunction in February.  The Venus-Pluto conjunction occurred at 17 Capricorn and the energetic frequency of "a woman surreptitiously bathing in the nude."  Themes of release from restraints and themes of manipulation (especially sexual manipulation) were in effect.

Now, five months later, Pluto finds himself back where he was then, as Pluto retrograded and is back at "a girl surreptitiously bathing in the nude."

Where is Venus?  She's on the other side of things now, at 17 Cancer and "the seed grows into knowledge and life."  What have we learned?  Was there a lesson? What has or has not been growing properly?  Was something rushed or pushed through?

The wisdom of the energetic of "the seed grows into knowledge and life" teaches us that things take time to develop.

The Sun adds the wisdom of "a large diamond in the first stages of the cutting process."  The wisdom that we gain today is designed to bring out the carat, cut, color, and clarity of life -- of us.

Mercury magnifies our view as it discharges "a man on a magic carpet observes vast vistas below him."  We see.

And the Earth disseminates the energetic of "an albatross feeding from the hand of a sailor."  We overcome.

The exact opposition of Venus and Pluto occurs at 11:21 pm ET/3:21 am UT.  The energetic is in effect all day and will have considerable effects on some relationships.  Venus and Pluto are all about relationships.  The Cancer-Capricorn polarity in which they are currently located involves structure, deep emotions, power and control issues, and issues of appreciation and support.

On July 7, the Sun will make opposition with Pluto at this same degree of "a girl bathing.."  What happens today will link to July 7 in some way. The energetic will be triggered again, so anything that has been imprinted during it repeats in some way.  This is how we learn.

Today, as the "drama" of this lunar month fades away with the last Moon phase of the month, we are on our magic carpet ride, high above looking at the carat, cut, color, and clarity of our magnificent world.  What a magical place to grow, like seeds, into knowledge and life.  Let's find the beauty today.

P.S.  Thanks to some quick research by my wise owl mother this morning, here is a cursory review of the things that were going on February 5/6 in the world:

  • 6.4 earthquake in Taiwan - 150 missing
  • Clinton and Sanders debate - dead heat
  • Jeb Bush and Ted Cruz were still in the race
  • an EPA mine dumped 880,000 pounds of metal into a river
  • Ford notified that it would build a factory in Mexico
  • hard push for the global warming agenda

Third Quarter Moon Phase: revise, realign

Moon in Taurus

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

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

Skill: wait patiently

True Alignments:  fulfillment, gaining a sense of control, explorations, getting the picture, harmony, understanding something that was previously hard to understand, curious, inspiring others, radiating goodwill

Catalysts for Change:  overindulgence, self sabotage, outbursts or fits, irrelevant, lacking imagination, closed in/boxed in/restricted, distractions, not seeing or being shown the full picture, grasping at straws, out of tune or harmony, miserly, unleashing anger, immature, fatigue (it's normal with today's energetics)

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "a woman activist in an emotional speech dramatizing her cause" (the drama of renaissance, inner fortitude coming out)

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

The pressure on the slingshot of Mars' retrograde is released today, ending its journey backward.  The time of Mars reworking how we use our time, energy, resources, and love ends at 7:40 pm ET/11:40 pm UT tonight.

The day a planet stations retrograde or direct is always "intensive."  By definition, the energetic is changeable.  Courses and directions are changed.  The day is usually eventful, personally and collectively.  Things can get very "strange."

When the Sun rises tomorrow (or whenever it rises after 7:40 pm ET wherever you are on Earth), the full energetic of Mars' retrograde will have released.  The Sun has to rise again before an energetic is fully over.

So, like yesterday, we understand that the magic carpet ride is wild today, and begins to move forward after two months of "sightseeing" from other perspectives.  Mars' retrograde has shown us many things and has re-worked many things.

In addition to the intensity of Mars' stationing direct, today we have a few other astrological aspects in effect at the same time.  I will break these down chronologically, but keep in mind that the energetic is in effect all day, not just at the exact time of the aspect:

6:03 am ET/10:03 am UT:  Moon moves into Taurus, opposing the Black Moon, and making for a Black Moon Day.  Black Moon Days happen for a couple of days two times per month.  This is one of them.  Black Moon Days bring the opportunity to grow -- the opportunity for rebirth. Our shadow sides tend to come out to show us something very clearly.  Anything that we are fearful about comes to the surface. 

Right now, the fear of loss and the fear of loss of security are heightened.  Insecurities about ourselves can creep in.  We can feel the grief of a loss (no matter how long ago or how recently it occurred) very deeply.  The Black Moon endeavors to resolve these issues when it is activated.  This is concentrated for those with the Sun, Black Moon, or Chiron in Taurus or Scorpio, since the Black Moon is moving through Scorpio until Valentine's Day 2017.

Fears of these kinds incite us toward "in-filling" or indulging (overindulging) in something (food, alcohol, drugs, shopping, saving) to stem or ward off the discomfort of the feelings.  One of the energetics Venus is discharging today is "a group of people who have overeaten and enjoyed it."  Be safe and be healthy if you are working through this.

11:05 am ET to 12:45 pm ET/ 3:05 pm UT to 4:45 pm UT:  The Moon will conjunct the Chiron Point (ah, didn't we just do the Chiron Point!) and bring about a window of time when painful feelings and losses are keen -- sharp even.  Chiron always aims to heal and teach, so there is something to learn here. 

If you are struggling with the energetics today, it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you listen to music.  Music is a prescription.  It recalibrates or realigns the brain and heart.  A new piece of music may be very helpful.  Your intuition will guide you to the right music.

1:21 pm ET/5:21 pm UT:  The Moon opposes the Black Moon.  The Moon will be discharging the energetic that I have come to dislike reporting on: "a widow at an open grave."  Despair, feelings of failure, and "open wounds" accompany this energetic.  But new opportunities and today's theme of rebirth also come.  The Black Moon is discharging the energetic of "a massive rocky shore resist the pounding of the sea."  So no matter how bombarded we feel, we know we are strong enough to stand.

7:25 pm ET/11:25 pm UT:  Mercury enters Cancer.  Before it does so, it discharges the energetic of "a parade of bathing beauties before large beach crowds."  It's always "a show" when this one is in effect.  Mercury in Cancer turns out thoughts toward nurturance, support, and care.  Feelings can move in new directions.

7:40 pm ET/11:40 pm UT: MARS STATIONS DIRECT.  Hallelujah.  And the Earth is discharging "an angel carrying a harp" to play it out.  I don't think I have ever wished for a retrograde to end (even a Mercury retrograde!) more than this one.  The retrograde period that began on April 18, 2016 ends.  Tomorrow we will see the board and see the field more clearly.  Things may seem very far out of reach today, especially with the Sun discharging "a small naked bends over a pond trying to catch a fish," Jupiter discharging "a volcanic eruption," and Venus later discharging "a man studying a mandala in front of him with the help of an ancient book."  The way things are today are not necessarily the way they will be tomorrow or in the future, for that matter.  We hold the line and wait for the energetic to clear out before we jump in.  New ways and new ways around obstacles are finding their ways to us.

I should mention that we are also building toward Venus making opposition with Pluto tomorrow.  This dynamic affects relationships, and it is a VERY strong duo.

Overall, today we will spread our wise owls wings ALL OVER the world today in a flurry that encompasses Gaia Sophia and the fellowship of humanity.  Today we wait, patiently.

Much love!

Third Quarter Moon Phase: revise, realign

Moon in Aries

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

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete: Ian, God of the East

Skill:  hold on and be aware of the energies - it's a wild ride out there today

True Alignments: sharing someone's load or burden, new life beginning, happiness in everyday things, emulating, future projections, guidance coming from "the unusual," the Creative Void, the inner compass, contentment

Catalysts for Change:  making the same mistakes, feelings of abandonment and judgment, false fronts, pretending, lack of purpose or meaning, gossip, feelings of superiority, breaking and splitting, pressure releases

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"

Mars continues to build pressure and intensity as it prepares to station direct tomorrow.  The Moon in Aries, ruled by Mars, is adding another layer of "Mars-ness" into the day.  Mars' retrograde has been re-working how we use our time, energy, and love, and how we assert our will and desire in the world.

Surprises and sudden events within the churning chaos of Mars may occur, with the Moon moving toward conjunct with Uranus, the Planet of Changes, today.  Exact conjunction is at 8:18 pm ET/00:18 am UT.

The Earth is discharging the Sabian symbol energetic of "birds in the house singing happily."  The theme of home is rather strong right now with Mercury making conjunction with the Galactic Center (our spiritual "home," according to the ancient Gnostics) overnight last night.  Mars' standstill is complicating things, but the Earth offers a counter energetic of Oneness to stabilize things, even if they are very active.

Two other energetics are in place today that can bring up feelings of overwhelm or disappointment.  Venus discharges "a very old man facing a vast dark space to the northeast," and Mercury is discharging "society granting bankruptcy to him, a man leaves the court."  Mind spaces can become very dark and self-persecuting with this combination.  But second chances, acceptance of responsibility, and courage to find a higher truth also accompanies them.

Keep in mind that it is difficult to advance or progress things until after Mars stations direct tomorrow.  Some things may be crashing and burning, but all in service of revising, rectifying, and realigning toward growth and evolution.  (The Sabian symbol for the degree where Mars stationed retrograde is "a mother leads her small child step by step up the stairs," and so we are being led to higher awareness and experience.)

In the "slingshot" of Mars' retrograde, tomorrow the sling reaches as far back as it can go and shoots forward, releasing the long pressure build up of the retrograde.  Since Mars has retrograded into Scorpio, a water sign, the slingshot opens up floodgates.  "Cracks" may already be occurring, as in the Sabian symbol energetic of "a broken bottle and spilled perfume" that was in place at this month's New Moon in Gemini on June 4.  Things are being let out or released suddenly.  We want to contain or moderate this as much as we can.

Impulsivity, anger, conflict, and aggression are the common things that Mars brings.  This we know.  But Mars also brings us the inner fortitude to carry on.  It brings our hopes, wishes, and dreams to life.  Without the action of Mars, things would be stagnant.  And stagnant is not the way of the Universe. 

Let's hold on loosely, remembering that the fellowship of humanity is more edgy, temperamental, anxious, careless, reckless, impulsive, angry, depressed, and in sensory-overload.  The human species was not originally intended to withstand the bombardment of a multi-planet system (and thus multiple simultaneous retrogrades of planets), but here we are, and here we are with our mettle.  Here we are persevering against all odds. 

We are the Children of Sophia and Thelete, and we have only just begun.

Third Quarter Moon Phase: revise, realign

Moon in Aries

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

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

Skill: skim lightly

True Alignments:  self-control, dreamy and creative, fellowship, flexible, imagination, careful, patient, power of words, signs, allowance, the unseen realm, assistance from the unseen realm, connected with nature (Nature is the greatest healer)

Catalysts for Change:  stubborn, lost or disconnected (feeling semi-dissociated is natural with this energetic but can go to the extreme), self-centered, aggressive, domineering, manipulative, resistant to flow, rushing, hypnotic effect/mind control

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

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

We enter the Third Quarter (or Last Quarter) phase of the lunar month later today (around 2:30 pm ET/6:30 pm UT).  Third Quarter Moon phase is essentially the days of the lunar month that complete the month's theme (which could also be considered a mission).  This month's theme of the inner self rising forth, with a fortified will, is polished up, polished off, revised, and realigned.  We come to a reassessment of the status of the situations, circumstances, feelings, ideas, and beliefs.

Something very important also happens during this Third Quarter Moon phase: Mars, The Titan, straightens up and flies right.  Mars will station direct or appear to move forward in the sky once again on Wednesday.  It has been "backwards" since April 18, 2016, moving backward in time, so to speak.

When planets retrograde, they re-work things.  Mars does not retrograde often.  It only does so once every two years.  When it does, it re-works how we use our energy -- our time, resources, attention, and love.  It endeavors to help us see what is better for us, and move in those directions.  Mars is ACTIVE.  The energy needs to move.  It rules headstrong, impulsive, fiery, motivated Aries.  Mars is not at all "comfortable" when it retrogrades.  Progress and momentum are elusive.  Frustration, anxiety, and impatience mount.

Over the next two days, as Mars prepares to move forward again, it is basically "on lock."  It is barely moving.  Struggling against its nature, Mars is at a virtual standstill as it churns out the last vestiges of the energetics of "crowds coming down the mountain to listen to one inspired man."  Messages have come down for each of us.  The next two days are key for getting the message.

Things may have to come to what seems like a stop before they begin to move forward again.  Knowing this can save us a lot of hardship.  Forcing things will not work.  It is a waste of time and energy.

But when it does move forward, on Wednesday, Mars is going to dart back onto its course with a vengeance.  Strength and vigor are renewed.  Our energy is refreshed from Mars' clean sweep.

Beautifully, Mars will station direct just before we begin the energetics of a new quarter of the solar-lunar year.  Every quarter, the energetics change dramatically.  This occurs in full force on July 4, with the New Moon in Cancer.  It is a shift or pivot point in the year.  It is the "First Quarter" time of the year, the time when we step out of our comfort zone and take action.  (On the Medicine Wheel, we move from the East to the South.)

Today, messages come "down from the mountain" with Mars, but also with the Earth discharging the energetic of "a veiled prophet speaks, seized by the power of a god."  The higher octave of this energetic works for the highest and best for all.  The lower octave can make it hard to know what to trust.  It is advised to hold any important action or decision until after Wednesday.

Mercury reinforces the idea of "holding" as it disseminates "winter frost in the woods."  The foundation, structure, or root of things is being reinforced.  It is coursing under the surface, even if we cannot feel it.

Finally, the Sun adds the energetic of "two fairies dancing on a moonlit night."  It is a "reveling" and "retiring" type of energy.  It rejoices in effervescence.  It is light.  I love this symbol and its energy.  Pay special attention to dreams when you sleep tonight (whenever that is for you in your place on the world).  Dreams are often prophetic when this frequency is discharged.

Let's dance out the Moonlit Night of Mars with grace and, if we are really wise, with gratitude.

(P.S.  The Mahavidya Bagalamukhi wishes to remind us that Mars stationed retrograde at the degree of "a mother leads her small child step by step up the stairs."  This energetic has effectively been in place during Mars' entire retrograde.  

Bagala wishes to remind us that we are STRONGER from Mars' retrograde and the first quarter of this solar-lunar year.  The INNER CHILD has been brought forth for healing.  The "early wounds" are shown to us so that we can move past them.  Look to the root cause (of any fear), and then leave it be.  It was formative, but not almighty.  We are much greater than our fears, and we have the power to do things differently.)

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!
