Third Quarter Moon Phase: revise, realign

Moon in Libra/Scorpio Sunday 2:37 pm ET/7:37 pm UT

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Tara - Goddess Who Guides Through Troubles and Dhumavati, Goddess Who Sorts and Winnows

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will/Desire): Elias - God of the West, God of Transformation

Skill: witness; find gratitude

True Alignments: mastering something, strong willed, openness, flexible, going with the flow (especially if plans change), reinforced structures, sources of ancient wisdom, role models, translating or interpreting for others, consulting others, simple solutions, relating, wonder and beauty of nature, balance, pursuit of dreams

Catalysts for Change: ignorance or thinking we know it all, anti-humanistic agendas, stunned by the complexity of something, blindness to or denial of one's true self and potential, radical and impulsive action, projection of one's feelings onto others, negative outlook of the future, imbalance, self-aggrandizement, poor estimates, aggressive

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "in winter, people cutting ice from a frozen pond for use in summer" (preparing, seeing ahead)

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

The Sun released a CME from an M2.3-class flare Friday night at 7:11 pm ET/Saturday morning at 00:11 am UT.  The Moon was located at 9 Libra and the Sabian symbol of "miners are emerging from a deep coalmine."  How fantastic!  This energetic indicates a release from darkness and coming into the light.  We come into fresh air, with something to show for it.  This solar emission is just what we need to counter any heaviness (or darkness) that is present with this weekend's Moon-Black Moon conjunction.  The Black Moon "rules" rebirth, and we would guess that coalminers would feel reborn after completing work deeply within the mines of the earth.  Saboath (Gnostic name for the being that is our Sun) calls out the darkness and shines bright light to bring us out of darkness.

Of special note is the fact that at the minute of the CME, the Sun had just moved to 11 Capricorn 00 or the Sabian symbol of 12 Capricorn: "a student of nature revealing little-known aspects of life."  The "parliament of wise owl readers" of Oracle Report are students of nature.  We practice this energy on a daily basis, but we lived and studied it thoroughly during the New Moon in Capricorn lunar month of January 1-30, 2014. 

(Longtime readers of OR may recall that the daily reports that month took on a story form, with the Wisdom Goddess Kali writing a little story that continued each day.  That story is the basis for my in-process book on the Band of Brothers, my name for the emissaries of the aeon Thelete.)

There's more.  On Saturday, Venus begins to discharge the energy of 05 Sagittarius: "an old owl up in a tree." Is Sabaoth winking at us?

Wisdom tells us that as we journey with the Black Moon and our shadow sides this weekend, we, as "students of nature" and "wise old owls up in a tree," are to observe what is happening and what is emerging.  What's happening and emerging is Second Renaissance, the time when the human collective is redressed and rebalanced.  On the micro level, each of us is redressing and rebalancing ourselves.  We are moving beyond our fears.

This is the little-known aspect of what's happening with life on Earth.  Gnosis (knowing) is returning.  The time has come, as we are "cutting through the ice of frozen consciousness."

As we continue to make friends with our shadow sides this weekend, several other important aspects are happening.  Here are the revelations:

SATURDAY, 7:02 am ET/12:02 pm UT:  The Moon conjuncts the Black Moon at the degree of "circular paths."  Are we tired of going around and around in circles, repeating the same patterns, actions, and habits.  That path is getting worn out, isn't it?  We can choose to rise out of it and set off in new directions, doing things a different way. The energy strongly supports evolving out of the past.  And the dynamic is in effect pretty much all weekend.

SATURDAY, 11:23 am ET/4:23 pm UT: The Moon, fresh from exact conjunction with the Black Moon opposes Uranus, bringing potential for sudden changes, shocks, and surprises.  This energetic puts things the way they need to be.  It can be shocking, sudden or traumatic, but it always brings a silver lining.  Those with the Sun, Black Moon, or Chiron in Aries or Libra are the biggest recipients of this energy.  Recall that Uranus is located at the degree of "two prim spinsters sitting together in silence," which is about breaking down emotional barriers and blocks.  What is being set free?

SUNDAY, 9:33 am ET/2:33 pm ET:  Mars leaves Libra (where it has transited since November 13) and moves into Scorpio (where it will transit through March 7).  Mars is the "original" ruler of Scorpio, before Pluto was discovered.  The "grassroots" rises with this.  And it usually comes about through anger or refusing to tolerate things any longer.  This should be interesting, wise owls.  Be aware that the natural reaction to Mars moving into Scorpio is heightened anger and the potential for things to get "down and dirty."  This transit is going to energize awakening from the shadows of the underworld, and is a much longer discussion.

SUNDAY, 2:37 pm ET/7:37 pm UT:  The Moon moves into Scorpio, ending the intensity of the Black Moon's dynamics for this go-round.

SUNDAY, 2:50 pm ET/7:50 pm: The Moon meets up with brand new Mars in Scorpio at "a sight-seeing bus filled with tourists."  We are entering new territory, friends -- an adventure.  Be aware of the heightened potential for anger, aggression, and potential for "terror traumatizing" as this energy enters.

One other thing: As Mercury is preparing to retrograde, it is a good idea to back up data and files or make copies now.  Mercury will retrograde at the same time the Sun is conjunct Pluto, so it will pack a punch.  The good news is that Mercury will retrograde at the degree of "an old adobe mission."  Plans for the future will be fine-tuned.

This weekend, we are wise owls in the tree, peering out, observing, and grateful to witness the re-emergence of wisdom.  Happy weekend, everyone, and remember to find beauty.
