New Moon Phase: begin, intend

Moon in Gemini

Goddess of Wisdom: Tara (Goddess Who Guides)

God of Will: Ian (God of the East)

Skill:  cooperate; share responsibility; prepare to receive wisdom

True Alignment: self-approval, standing up for ideals and values, speaking truth to power, lenient, bending time and space to suit one's needs, perseverance, getting to the depths of an issue, flexibility, determination, faith that one is sustained in the face of the unknown

Catalysts for Change: recklessness, greed, domineering, rejection, taking credit for group work, commitment issues, agreeing to something you don't want to do, people-pleasing, selfish, self-sacrifice, harsh self-judgment, hyper self-defensive

Today's energetics center heavily around cooperation and collaboration.  When responsibilities are shared, a better result is achieved.

People of like-mind are drawn together to accomplish things, as well.  Relationships will undergo change, transformation, and evolution during a window of time that opened with Sunday's New Moon and continues through May 26, 2015.  Venus is opposing Pluto and making a square with Uranus.  All that is developing or changing within relationships is designed to bring us into alignment with what is best.  Uranus guarantees this.  If dramatic or disruptive events need to happen to make things the way they need to be, if it takes that.  The highest octave of this dynamic is a blissful transcendence of the ordinary.  (Keep in mind that our relationship with our self is included in this.)

Since we have begun a lunar month that is like a month-long Crescent Moon phase, the time of the month that tends to challenge us, we hold to our "ideals of greatness."  The universe asks us if we are serious about how we want our personal world and our world at large to be.  Perseverance is required when Crescent energies are in play.  Patience is helpful.  We are thinking long-term with our eye on "the prize."  We don't give up.  Challenges to our ideas make them stronger, so we are careful not to automatically view or judge conditions that develop.  What seems like a set back may very well be an enhancement.

Something very interesting happens today and is very much a "long-term, eye on the prize" dynamic - a blessing.  Chiron moves to the 22nd degree of Pisces today, the degree of the Sabian symbol of "a prophet bringing down the law from Mount Sinai."  Revelations of truth and wisdom, new information, ideas, and inspiration will be unprecedented.  Many things will come to light and come to the fore.  Chiron will station retrograde at this degree on June 24, so it will be disseminating 22 Pisces until July 30, 2015.  Many, many things will come to light between now and then.

It's a good day to request a revelation or inspiration, and a good day to emanate peace and ease within the collective.  Remember that the underlying energetics today favor cooperation and collaboration. 

As a band of owls aiming for wisdom, we give thanks for the light that is coming down the mountain.

(Mercury retrograde struck hard here yesterday, really engaging the Sabian symbol of its retrograde - "2 people living far apart in telepathic communication."  It had to be telepathic because I could not get it out any other way.  The telepathic message for yesterday's energy was "let it be.")
