New Moon Phase: beginnings, set intentions

Moon in Gemini

Goddess of Wisdom: Chinnamasta (Goddess Who Expands the Mind)

God of Will: Ian (God of the East, King of Battle)

Skill: keep a cool head

Positive Imprints: staging or building a structure or idea, mind-blowing, demanding one's rights, well-grounded, surges of energy, endurance, understanding something, standing up for something, bringing forth memories of things from the past that are lasting and valuable, emergence

Catalysts for Change: growing intensity to the point of shocking release, feeling out of control, taking over, anxiety, demanding one's way, projecting blame onto others, inflated egos, ungrounded and overloaded, disconnected, interfering in other's business or stirring up things, dramatic reactions, anger, minimizing self or others

Sabian Symbol for the Lunar Month: "the music of the spheres"

Situations and emotions are "highly charged" today with the Sun moving to the degree of the Sabian symbol "an electrical storm."

In combination with the Black Moon yesterday beginning to discharge the energy of the Sabian symbol of "a volcanic eruption" through April 28, things have potential to become volatile and spill out.  An upset to the way things used to be (in our world and in our lives) is activating our instincts.  In turn, new approaches to things are revealed.  Are you seeing things in a new way?

As the Second Renaissance unfolds, so does a restoration of balance.  To re-balance things, we need to strive, and striving means effort.  But striving does not mean struggling, though it often feels that way.  This is a key concept to keep in mind because the Sun is coming to the place in the sky where the planet Chiron, the archetypal energy of the Wounded Healer and Teacher, was discovered.  A distortion of the Chiron energy is suffering and self-sabotage.  Chiron is the energetic signature of the Master Teacher, so it reveals wisdom about suffering and self-sabotage - wisdom which heals us.  The Sun will fully activate the Chiron energetic on Thursday.  It should be noted that Chiron is the energy that engineers bridges and is the energy that bridged us into the Second Renaissance.  If the ancient Greeks had the term, the mythological god Chiron would have been called a Renaissance Man.  The "inner Chiron" in all of us is activating, so we will strive for healing and learning, not suffering and failing.

New approaches, new needs, new paths, new discoveries, new everything is happening now.  From deep within us, things are reaching forth, seeking light.  With "electrical storms" come flashes of light - inspiration!  These come in radical packets today, so we want to maintain good grounding and not blow circuits.  A good use of this energy is to clean or clear.  Space will open up and energy will flow more efficiently (more happily). 

Today, connect with the stroke of lightning - the stroke of genius - that is the manifestation of your spirit on Earth.  Reach forth.  Strive.  Bring balance.

Caption for today's photograph from wise owl Jessica yesterday:

"As we are in a new epoch of humanity...I took this today of my daughter and her friends (some established, some brand new as of today) at a home school program run by the county park.  To my eye, it speaks volumes about how people can be if treated properly." 

Wise words indeed, Jessica.
