Crescent Moon Phase: perseverance, challenge

Moon in Pisces

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Kali, Goddess of Beginnings and Endings

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will/Desire): Seth, God of the North, God of Transformation

Skill: cast away

True Alignments: shielding from harm, decisive, inner resources, release from pressures, dedication to helping others, full spectrum, revising and realigning, choosing to think differently, Eastern traditions and the rise of the East, fair value, fearless

Catalysts for Change:  unfair, undervaluing, arguing, not seeing a bigger picture, love triangles, overdoing, fears about safety and security, sacrificing self, immaturity, giving over power to something/someone we feel is more powerful, invasions of privacy, indecision, boxed in, unrefined

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "a hidden choir singing during a religious service" (unity, harmony, unseen assistance)

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the music of the spheres" (the recalibration / re-tuning of human consciousness)

In the cycles of the Sun and Moon, the natural method of timing, we are in the last quarter of the solar-lunar year.  This lunar month is one of the four "turning points" in the year, the times when massive shift occurs within the collective consciousness.  This year, the turning points are particularly potent, because this solar-lunar year is the point in time when human consciousness is recalibrated or re-tuned to a higher state.  Evolution is in process.  We see this manifesting in our world in large measure now, as the last quarter of the year begins.

With great change comes great opportunity.  Great fear can also come if we do not understand what is happening.  We do know what is happening, and the wisdom of the Sabians, the ancient sky watchers, guides us through the shifts.  Here is the summary of today's guidance:

CAST AWAY:  The Earth is located at the degree of " a woman and two men castaways on a small island in the South Seas."  This was the Sabian symbol for the Cancer Lunar Month of July 15 - August 13, 2015.  Cancer is a "cardinal" sign, and one of the four months when we have a turning point.  What was happening in your life at that time?  How do you feel and think about that now?  Where do those things stand?  Is there a message to gain from looking back to that time?

Since things are changing so rapidly on the economic and geopolitical stages, we can "cast away" from that to some degree.  We can step back, out of the chaos and fear, taking ourselves out of the midst of it.  The Sabian symbol for the location of the Sun today is "a woman entering a convent," which also speaks of retreating back.  As our spiritual, emotional, energetic, and physical bodies handle the mass trauma response that is being triggered in the world, we can "retreat" or fall back to our "happy place," our sacred place, our inner space. 

Wise owls are well-rehearsed for this.  We turn inward, watching what is happening from a higher vantage point.  We do not engage the fear.  The fear comes from uncertainty, but the Sabian symbols tell us that things are not uncertain.  We know that unseen assistance from higher sources is happening, like a hidden choir singing during a religious service.  We know that a shift in consciousness that is in alignment with the values of life and liberty is occurring.

The Moon made conjunction with Neptune at 8:16 am ET/1:16 pm UT today, at the degree of a "a girl blowing a bugle."  The call of awakening is strong today, and people who are just awakening are awakening with a hard hit.  Those who have been "awake" to the nature of the crumbling power and control systems for a while have had time to adjust.  The newly-awakening do not have an adjustment time, and thus are in shock.  By definition, people who are in shock do not act normally.  Thus, we see radical, bizarre, and shocking behavior -- all a response to fear.  People close to you may be acting out or projecting their fears.  We understand what is happening.

The Sun and Mercury (which is retrograde) will make conjunction at the degree of the "woman entering a convent" tomorrow, January 14 at 9:06 am ET/2:06 pm UT, but the effects are strong today as the planets come closer together.  Before Mercury stationed retrograde,  it was located at this degree on December 26, so that time is linking to this time.  (December 26 was also the day Uranus stationed direct, producing a slingshot effect.) Since Mercury is retrograde and meeting up with the Sun again, issues with interpersonal communications, telecommunications, travel, and electronics could flare up.

Today we are casting away from fear and chaos, casting out the darkness of the past, and casting a line to hold space and equilibrium for the fellowship of humanity.  Our belief is strong and we are united, listening as a "hidden choir" sings a new era for freedom.
