Balsamic Moon Phase: release, dream

Moon in Gemini

Goddess of Wisdom: Tara (Goddess Who Guides)

God of Will: Ian (God of The East)

Skill: see beyond fears and illusions

Catalysts for Change: not letting go of the past, loss - especially from leaving things unprotected or unguarded, cut (to the core or out of one's life), spoiled, risks, addiction to drama, rejection, harshly showing disapproval

True Alignments: self-approval, taking care, seeing what's essential and valuing it, guidance, perseverance, practice, openness and disclosure, guarding and protecting what we love

Sabian Symbol for the Lunar Month: "a mature woman reawakened to romance"

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the music of the spheres"

The eve of the New Moon in Cancer sees Saturn retrograding out of Sagittarius and back into Scorpio.  Saturn begins to re-disseminate the energy of the Sabian symbol of "children in Halloween costumes indulging in various pranks."  The lower level of this frequency is "the trickster."  It tends to reinforce the shadow side and even incite varying levels of madness.  It is also easier to "pull the wool" over people and take something right out from under them.  This energetic is in effect until July 4, 2015.  Here on June 15, that seems like a long time for those who prefer the sanity and peace of life without the attempted power and control over every aspect of one's life and constant mischief.

But the higher level of this frequency sees the level of energy engaged with it.  It is child's play.  It's not an adult's pursuit.  And it will end the way things always do when children are causing trouble -- they will begin to fight with each other and eventually stomp off crying, looking for their mother.

The wisdom of this dynamic is first recognizing that shadow sides and core fears -- fears that incubate in the R-complex or reptilian brain -- are being tempted or tricked into coming out.  The purpose of this is a last-ditch, desperate move to destroy true love, expressions of beauty, freedom, and the respect and value of life.  Knowing this is what is happening, we can hold the line and grow or rise out of the game/trick.  Overriding the instincts of the R-complex of the brain is not an easy thing to do, by any means.  But we can do it.  We can forego the bait when we are tempted to act (react) from fear.  The best way to do this is to:

Become still inside and let things be.  Practice the skill of the wise owl in the tree. 

When we can slow the emotional responses (step out of time, bending it) we can focus on shifting the field toward something more positive or loving.  Be aware that shifting the field under these energetic conditions may only influence your own field at the moment.  But that is enough to hold space and hold things in equilibrium until things resettle into better alignment.

I am devoting much of today's report on this element because it is a main undercurrent of the larger dynamics of the new lunar month, which begins tomorrow.  I will be recording the overview for the new lunar month tonight.

But on this last day of the last phase of the Taurus lunar cycle, the cycle when something inside of us has tried to reawaken, don't be tricked into giving up on it.  We persevere under these energetics.  We release the thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and events that we do not want to carry into the new month.  The deeper we can go with this today the better we are served, starting tomorrow.

Many thanks to the divine beings Tara and Ian, emissaries of the aeons Sophia and Thelete, for unwavering guidance during the second month of the new Renaissance.
