Gibbous Moon Phase: trust

Moon in Capricorn

Ruling Wisdom Goddess: Bhairavi (The Fierce One)

Skill: lift yourself up

Negative Imprint: negative thoughts about self, pressure, ageism, concern with age/capability, fear of taking action, possessiveness, moody, control

Positive Imprint: self-sufficiency, sovereignty, lifting self up, uplifting others, cooperation, instruction from higher sources

Today we may find that we need to lift ourselves up in some way because the negative imprint is deeply ingrained.  The astrological aspects reinforce feelings that we aren't good enough, don't measure up, and aren't capable.  It's really easy to fall into this pattern today.  As spiritual warriors, we will push through this energy and re-imprint it with a higher octave.

In fewer years than we think, the higher octave of our efforts to re-imprint the energy toward the positive (sane) will overwrite the negative imprint.  Your work with this is important and goes far beyond your personal sphere of life.

This month we are like a ring of standing stones reverberating a frequency of love around the planet.  The stones sing in unison.  This manifests as our heart's desire to connect with others and share.  It's a potent force.

But because the force is so potent, negativity quickly enters to sabotage it.  And this is where we will need to use the skills of a wise owl.  If you find yourself engaging in self-sabotaging, self-denigrating, or self-destructive thoughts (or behavior), you will need to use the wisdom of the old owls.  This wisdom tells us that the thoughts are an intrusive mind program from an alien source.  Literally.  The thoughts are NOT TRUE.  The loop of horrible thoughts about ourselves threatens to shatter our ring of standing stones.  This we will not allow.

So, if this starts to develop for you today, stop, drop, and roll outside.  Change up what you are doing and revert to nature.  If you can't get to some nature, change your activity.  Focusing on someone else or extending ourselves to someone else helps.  But mainly you have to believe that the thoughts aren't true and that they are being inserted.  Wise owls don't fall for the trick.

You aren't weak; you are powerful.  You aren't incapable; you are invincible.  You aren't a terrible human; you are a creation of the heavens.  Don't believe otherwise.

In response to all of this, Gaia Sophia is very close today.  Pay special attention to synchronicities and animal sightings.  Keep your copy of Ted Andrews' Animal Speak nearby to interpret those messages.

There is a lot of pressure building toward the Full Moon on Sunday.  The energy accompanying the Full Moon unmoors us in some way.  This is great for taking leaps of faith (as we are compelled to do all month), but is not so good if our minds are not firmly grounded (moored) with the planet (Gaia Sophia).  We can expect a good deal of drama from this.  Saturn is the main player, and that means Archons are active.  Given the fragility of the world stage at the moment, things could get very blown out of proportion and even more destabilized.  This goes for individuals, too.

The Sun-Mercury conjunction is really speeding things up, so it might be necessary to take yourself out of that speed and slow down to maintain your sanity.

We are massive, solid, and aligned, and we will let the ugly stuff bounce right off of us.  We remember and we believe!

(For those interested in the astrology, Saturn is squaring the conjunction between the Sun, Mercury, and the Black Moon.  Thoughts run dark as Saturn, planet of the Archons, takes us to task.)
