Sabian Symbol for the Lunar Month: "the music of the spheres"
The Sun was quite active yesterday, sending multiple flares and one coronal mass ejection. The CME was from the EAST side of the Sun and occurred at 6:40 am ET/10:40 am UT, when the Moon was located at the Sabian symbol of "an old-fashioned well." Support, supply, depth, and faith was disseminated by Sun with the CME.
A key point of this is the "depth" energy, which prompts a reminder that our thoughts have more power than we have ever experienced. Thoughts, feelings, and beliefs are being deeply imprinted (seeded) into a newly-refreshed (ploughed) field of consciousness. With this comes great responsibility. We are more responsible for ourselves than we ever have been.
No pressure, right?
Well, pressure is exactly what is being applied as things that have been out of balance try to come into balance, now that a (massive) re-set has occurred with April 18's New Moon. It's like re-tuning an instrument but on a cosmic scale. Things are coming back to their true, basic sound and form.
It is also fair to say that this means things are more "pure" or even "raw."
The pure, raw energetics that are the stuff from which magic can be made today come courtesy of a conjunction of Mercury and Mars at the degree of "a symbolic battle between swords and torches." Pure power to connect with (and therefore "imprint" into the energy) the power of LOVE and LIGHT is infinite.
The "battle" to do this is only within ourselves, but it may not feel this way today as the Chiron energetics of cutting, wounding, healing, and teaching are building toward apex tomorrow. The Sabian symbol for Chiron is "the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow." We've already bridged the rainbow (into the new era, the Second Renaissance) and are now at the pot of gold part, so there is no need to continue any suffering. Our minds are gold mines, and we want to plant a rich field for the future.
Also, we are now in the Crescent Moon phase, which is the time of the lunar month that challenges us to not give up on our ideas, ideals, and intentions (hopes, wishes, and dreams) for the future. Our minds are gold mines, and we want to care for this rich field of the future.
If the gravity of situations - pressure - starts to overtake you, switch back to taking responsibility for your thoughts by remembering that you are putting this into the field. Your natural instincts (and sense of mission) to not want to hurt the field will begin to over-ride and pull you back up. This is a skill that may take us some time to wield masterfully, so be gentle with yourself if your emotions (particularly feelings of rejection, failure, vulnerability, and inability) have a hold. Music will help the switch. I particularly like The O'Jays "Love Train" as medicine for this type of malady. It is old-fashioned, but it can help us be well.
Today we may have to earn it, but we stand up with our brothers and sisters around the world to enrich the field. Let's call it a glorious day - a pure, true Earth Day.
