Gibbous Moon Phase: trust

Moon in Libra/Scorpio

Ruling Mahavidya: Bhuvaneshvari (The World Nurse), Tara (The Rescuer)

Skill: transform yourself

Negative Imprint: envy, restrictions, dissatisfaction with what one has

Positive Imprint: liberation, the realization of inner gifts, appreciation

Early Sunday morning (04:18 am ET/ 08:18 UT), the Sun released two coronal mass ejections, reinforcing the symbolic energy of "a blazing fireplace in a deserted home."  (For new readers, we look at the degree of the Moon at the time of the CME, 8 Libra in this case, to determine which of the day's energies is highlighted.)  This energy brought double the power of unseen, sustaining energy that is always ready and available to us. We are reminded that we are never alone.  Gaia Sophia always provides.  We may desert ourselves at times, but she never does.

Today, the month's two Mahavidyas (Wisdom Goddesses who are aspects of the great goddess Gaia Sophia) will be directly involved in events.  Bhuvaneshvari, the World Nurse, She Whose Body is the World, She of Magnificent Jewels, materializes a gift from within us.  She helps us bring forth a talent, reward, or skill that we have forgotten or have never realized.  Bhuvaneshvari transforms something deep inside of us today.

Tara, The Rescuer, The Guide Through Troubles, The Compassionate Savior, works today to help us cross into new territory or go beyond our previously-held limits and boundaries.  We can call on her if things start to get in our way - emotions, obstacles, self-sabotage, beliefs, circumstances, etc.  If we ask, Tara will work to liberate us from whatever prevents us from spreading our wings.  She saves the day.

Other themes today are: the tendency for people to be envious; perfectionism; looking but not being able to touch; wanting more than we have; the need to take turns leading and following; pleasure in marking achievements; re-attunement to the rhythms of the planet; the tendency to feel scattered or directionless; and trying to get control of something that is out of control.  Again, call on the Mahavidyas for help if needed.

Take note that Venus is moving into conjunction (the same place in the sky) as Uranus over the next few days.  When planets make conjunction with Uranus, shake-ups are at hand.  Uranus puts things right.  Uranus does for us what we have been unable to do for ourselves.  This can be surprising and shocking.  Since Venus is the other planet involved, relationships, money, and values are the focus.  The much-discussed Grand Cardinal Cross energy will be re-activated by this conjunction, making lasting imprints for the future.  If you have a planet around 15 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn, you are already feeling this energy.  Make sure that you are taking extra precautions to turn off appliances and taking extra care while driving.  Uranus brings accidents which are not accidental, but we can mitigate the drastic effects by being conscious of the potential.

Many thanks to all the wise owls capturing beauty in photographs and sending them for all of us to enjoy.  It's an explosion of beauty to open my email and see them.


Today, ask for help from the goddesses if you need it and keep this month's mission in mind:

As a whole, this month we are crossing new boundaries with a heavy load, using different lenses of perception.  After we hear a wake-up call, a call to action, or a call to devotion, we observe the patterns and themes of the energy and ultimately unite with our spiritual comrades.  The entire month's energy intends a "nexusing" of people - putting people together, putting people in the places they need to be, and connecting/reconnecting people who have work to do together (including work at the level of the soul).
