Gibbous Moon Phase: trust

Moon in Aries/Taurus

Ruling Mahavidya: Kamala (Goddess of Passion)

Skill: open up

Negative Imprint: interruptions, intrusions, insincerity, tangled up in other's business, closed off or shut down, overcomplicating, not speaking up for oneself

Positive Imprint: contentment, self-sufficiency, depth, connections, transformation, repair, communication, magnetism, sincerity

A few years ago I noted a pattern of increased solar activity when the Sun comes into range, astrologically speaking, of 14 degrees of Scorpio in the sky, as it does today.  The pattern is increased solar activity, as we are having now.  The most recent example, November 5 2013, produced a solar magnetic crochet and an X3 flare. 

What is happening at this place in space?

Our best clue about the effects of this energetic has been handed down to us by the Sabians, the Gnostic skywatchers of the before times.  The contemporary symbol for 14 Scorpio is "telephone linemen at work installing new connections."  It is the energy for communicating our feelings, thoughts, and ideas.  We "nexus" with people as the divine plan unfolds and sends what we need for co-creation with others.  People, places, things, and information are brought together or brought into a line - alignment.  Professional, personal, and romantic relationships are often repaired under this energy.  For as long as I have followed the Sabian symbols, this symbol has always proven to be quite powerful.

Under a Gibbous Moon phase, it is powerful magic.

(Because energy comes in waves, the energetic effects are experienced for three days prior to the Sun's movement to this degree and three days after.  This is why some people "pick up" the energy of the daily reports earlier or later than that day.  If your chart is attuned to any of the degrees that are activated, you will usually feel it in advance.  So you may already have picked up on this energy, especially since Venus just moved from this degree.

But back to the magic.  Our willingness to open our hearts is directly tied to experiencing the magic.  If your heart is closed off with sadness, grief, loss, anger, resentment, shame, guilt, and all like colors in the palette of human emotions, the magic cannot reach you, take spark inside of you, and manifest in the personal painting of your life.

Kamala, the Mahavidya or Wisdom Goddess who is one of the faces of Gaia Sophia, the divine being embodied as our planet, specializes in opening our hears like a lotus blossom, specifically by igniting passion for the things that make life worth living, which are myriad.

All of the Mahavidyas work from the heart, but some more than others.  Bhairavi calls to us and fortifies our hearts.  Shodashi brings the fulfillment of our highest desire - the desires at the soul level. 

But Kamala works on a much more earthy, instinctual level.  She engages all of our senses to open so that the fires of the heart can begin to rise throughout our bodies.  She is interested in full, multi-dimensional awareness experienced right in the here and now.  She takes what is instinctual and makes it sublime.  This is intoxicating to us and it is why so many people (men particularly) are enthralled with Kamala's energy (though few know this is what or who it is).  Kamala uncoils from the base chakra and rises up.  She is kundalini.

So Kamala's energy helps us open, as if by magic, and connect with what we desire.  When we connect with desire we become empowered and we take action.  This is how our world is changing.

Today's report is more of a behind-the scenes kind of view, so please rely on the negative and positive imprints to understand the nature of today's energy and the kinds of things you might encounter and need to navigate.

Like a lotus blossoming, Kamala is trying to open our hearts today.  She wants to free us from the shadows of our fears and bring us to the land of the truly living.  Connect with her today.  Open up to the possibilities that are being offered and engage the magic.
