The Sabian symbol for the position of the Earth says it all today: a serpent coiling near a man and a woman.  Wisdom is coiled next to us today like a serpent, but serpents also tend to strike, so we will be wise to the potential.  Much of today's energy centers around relationships.

As we move to Wednesday's total lunar eclipse of the Blood Moon, the emotions in the blood are boiling and emotions are also turning cold-blooded.  The key to navigating this is to take yourself out of the emotional churn.  Emotionally detach from situations and take the stance of the wise owl watching what is happening.  This is the point from which we will gain wisdom about what is being revealed to us.

Every day this month is like a Full Moon and this brings lunacy.  People are saying things, doing things, and thinking things that can be very wild.  The energy is wildly creative, but some are using this to create wild scenarios.  Things are going crazy.

This is not a surprise to us because we have anticipated this month's energy since March, when I first highlighted it.  At that time, I discussed how the new world order (unnatural world order) and the old world order (natural world order) would clash this month.  This is the month when the collective consciousness of humanity pushes back and begins to overtake.  Remember that the Sabian symbol for this month's energy is "the light of the sixth race transmuted to the seventh," which describes the shift that is happening to take us to the next level.

We need to honor this time instead of letting the R-complex of the brain, our "inner reptilian," get carried away with instinctual responses.  We are much stronger and smarter than this and will not allow ourselves to act ugly to others.  We will, however, defend ourselves from ugliness any others are project at us.  Projection is very high right now under the month-long effects of Full Moon phase energy.  Shadow sides come out.

The other thing that is high is clarity.  The Full Moon will be bright and clear but it is also bloody.  The truth can be brutal, but it always serves to set us free.

This one sets us free from settling for scraps.  People are scavenging for shreds of anything they can grab on to.  Desperation can set in.  We refuse that which is in not in integrity, holding ourselves to another level.  We recognize that better things are coming to us and we don't settle for less.  We turn our backs to what is not worthy.

Mercury is trying to crawl off of 2 degrees of Scorpio and the energy of "a broken bottle and spilled perfume."  This energy has been with us for a week now, but today is the last day.  Lingering emotions related to events that have broken out, broken apart, shattered, erupted, or exploded recently will begin to dissipate.

Take frequent breaks today because this will enable you to step out of the fray of the energy.  When things become chaotic, we turn to nature.  We go outside, connect to what is real, and answer the call to the spiritual warriors.  We respond to a higher order - the dreaming of Gaia Sophia.  Act with the integrity of the warrior that you are.
