The energy of the Sacred Masculine is in full force this weekend with Neptune stationing direct (appearing to move forward in the sky once again).

Neptune has been retrograde (appearing to move backward in the sky) since June 10, 2014.  It went retrograde at the degree of the Sabian symbol "a girl blowing a bugle."  Since that time, the Sacred Masculine has been sounding a call of awakening within the collective.  He has been calling something inside each of us to action. 

The Sacred Masculine, via Neptune, has been a major factor in what I've termed the "nexusing" of people of like mind coming together.  This is evidenced by the degree where Neptune is stationing direct Saturday, "heavy car traffic on a narrow isthmus linking two seaside resorts."  This energy has been about bridging or merging the two worlds - the old control paradigm that is falling and the return of the older paradigm that has been lying in wait - which is the focus of my conversation with Sol Luckman, posted on the homepage at

Sol discussed the corpus callosum and its function to link the two hemispheres of our brains.  The corpus callosum is a bridge - a narrow isthmus - that links two worlds - two seaside resorts.  It puts things together, coordinates them so that they function well.  This is one of the things the Sacred Masculine does.  So, this weekend, as the energy of the Sacred Masculine comes in like waves crashing on a beach, honor it by putting things together, and by this I mean make the connection.  See what the universe has been trying to show you over the last two months.  There is a call to action in there - a call that will make your life better.  Our inner Sacred Masculine does not stick his head in the sand because what he sees is unpalatable.  In fact, it motivates him.  It strikes a cord and he responds instinctively. 

The close of these two powerful lunar cycles brings us in close confrontation with ourselves.  We need to respond to what we've learned about ourselves from the perspective of the inner Sacred Masculine - facing it and responding to it.

Mars is contributing to the strong influx of masculine energy this weekend as well.  In combination with Kamala, the Goddess of Passion, inner fires are ignited.

On the practical level this weekend, several themes swirl, so please pay close attention to the keywords for the negative and positive imprints. 

On Saturday, our ability to integrate the insights we've received over the last two months is heightened.  On Sunday, we gain a much deeper understanding of those things.  Sunday's energy is deeply penetrating with light, as the Sun will reach the degree of "an x-ray photograph."  (On that note, I should mention that the biggest sunspot in 25 years, the one that released so many flares but few CMEs a couple of weeks ago, sunspot 2192 renamed 2209 is now returning our way after its jaunt across the Sun.)

If you have neglected your body under these strong energetics, reconnect with it.  If you have not had enough time in nature, remedy it.  If you have not had enough fun lately, rectify it.  If you have not had enough beauty in your life, create it with loving feelings for the Earth, her people, her creatures, and her elements.  If you have not felt alive for a while, let the Sacred Masculine stir desire in your heart.

And please keep those photos coming when you capture sights of beauty.  We Northern Hemisphere wise owls are counting on our pals in the Southern Hemisphere to remind us of Spring and Summer!  Have a wonderful Sacred Masculine weekend, everyone.
