On this last day of the Crescent Moon phase, the energy that formed over the past two days as the Moon came together with the Black Moon is fully discharged by 10:20 am ET/ 2:20 pm UT. It certainly has been interesting to see what transpires when shadow sides are triggered during month-long energy for standing up and coming forward. The Wisdom Goddess Bagalamukhi, the aspect of Gaia-Sophia who paralyzes ugly behavior and calms emotional storms, will be hard at work with all that transpired.
Today, signs about the future show up. Signs come in many forms - synchronicities, messages, information, animal sightings, and conversations. The past may come back in some way to show us the need for a new way or to reinforce something we have already learned. We also see where we need to make adjustments or improvisations.
It is important to know that our personal levels of energy are somewhat lower today, so we do not want to push things. We want to work with the nature of the day's energy, not against it. We are building inner strength all month long, but much of our energy has been focused on handling the outer world over the last two days. Today is the day to refuel. Take some time to engage your imagination and your sense of fun. Anticipate a brighter future. Keep things simple.
The nature of this month's energy was determined back at the New Moon in Gemini, which was 8 degrees of Gemini - the energy of "aroused strikers around a factory." The strength to come forward and stand up for ourselves is building inside each of us. From this we are freeing ourselves from outer circumstances and conditions that limit or enslave us. We are over-riding past tendencies. The potential of this energy is limitless. It is powerful enough to paralyze all things acting against natural world order. We are adding to the imprint of this energy now. One day in the future, when the Sun reaches 8 degrees of Gemini again, we as the aroused strikers will close out "the matrix." The inner strength that is built now ripples out into the fabric of time. Be aware of what is happening. The Second Renaissance is underway.
