We have two days remaining in this lunar cycle's energetic of darkness being parted to reveal better ways, alternatives, opportunities, directions, and understandings.  It has been a great blessing.

How can we squeeze and savor every bit of what remains of it?

Here are some suggestions:

1- Immerse within the natural cycles of the Sun and Moon by attuning the Balsamic Moon phase energy.  Balsamic energy is like "weekend energy" except most of the time it comes during the week.  Daily life operates within an unnatural (archontic) construct of time (that is intentionally altered at changeable intervals with the whole daylight savings assault)/  We are not designed to function unnaturally.

Balsamic energy is very day-dreamy, which doesn't sit well with slave-driving system of the matrix.  The task is to split our focus and simultaneously complete the tasks of the work/school system while also being in a mindset of dreaming.  This is walking two worlds at once, and is not as hard as one would think because our minds are very powerful, and the energies of nature are ultra-supportive of this right now.  The universe wants us to get the message - see the light -- and where our thoughts and feelings take us is revelatory under this dynamic.

So as the next two days of the Balsamic Moon phase dissolve into the New Moon phase on Friday, divert some time and energy to daydreams, hopes, and wishes.  Give thanks, and give thought to how you would like the world to be.  Be at peace, and send that "frequency" out into "the field" of consciousness.  If an image would help to disseminate the essence of Balsamic energy, today we have a perfect one with Mars at the degree of the Sabian symbol "a retired sea captain watches ships entering and leaving the harbor."  We can mentally "retire" any time we want.  Like a wise owl in a tree, we can step inward and observe.

Of course, if you can actually take real time to "make manifest" some of the daydreams, hopes, and wishes through action (create it), the results can be quite dramatic.  Again, consider the mission of the energy this month and how supportive it is for such a thing.  I highly recommend coloring pictures or mandalas to reconnect with will and desire (the inner sacred masculine).  There is a reason for the coloring book craze.  It's called renaissance.  The animating spirits of life rise from the earth and come down from the sky to infuse the collective of humanity with brilliance and creativity.

2- Be willing to look at anything your heart or mind is rigidly stuck on that has actually run its course.  Venus is disseminating the energy of "a gold rush tears men away from their native soil."  Usually this energy is about always chasing something or looking for something "better," and disrupts equilibrium.  In the context of this month's energetic of new pathways being opened, mentally "leaving" where one has been if it doesn't serve the highest and best is really quite valuable and worthwhile.  This energetic can be worked at a very high level right now.  Let's rush to the gold of the soul.

3 - Recognize your blessings.  They exist for each of us, even if you are having a major Black Moon transit (those with the Sun, Black Moon, and I have to now add Chiron in Aries or Libra - another story).  Interestingly, the last degree of Sagittarius, ruled by Jupiter (lofty spirituality and teachings), is the Sabian symbol of "the Pope blessing the faithful."  Mercury is located at this degree today.  More interestingly is Pope Francis' kickoff of the "Jubilee of Mercy."  They always kickoff on the eve of the day, not the day (yesterday began this "jubilee").  The primary intention with the pomp and circumstance will be revealed when the Sun reaches the last degree of Sagittarius on December 21/22.  Winter Solstice.  Eyes on this.

If we can hold these three notions over the next two days, wondrous things can develop -- things we maybe cannot even imagine.  The idea is that the new is being revealed, so we can create the ideal conditions for it happen.

(Here is an exercise in fine-tuning with the energies of the Sabian symbols.  The Moon will move through the last degrees of Scorpio as the Scorpio lunar cycle is waning.  As we bid it adieu, we can follow the completion of the energy as it unfolds:

11:39 am ET/4:39 pm UT: "the King of the Fairies approaches his domain" (dominance, leaders, "going home")

1:34 pm ET/6:34 pm UT: "an Indian woman pleading to the chief for the lives of her children" (standing up for others, leniency, foolish choices)

3:30 pm ET/8:30 pm UT: "children in Halloween costumes indulging in various pranks" (tricks, veils, indulgence, not getting to the real issue)

Many thanks to Phoenix for having me on his show last night - great fun.  You can listen to the archive here:
