Nature Spirits

The Sabian symbol for the full moon eclipse that occurred this morning 15-16 degrees of Aries is:

“Nature spirits seen at work in the light at sunset”

This symbol represents attunement to the potency of invisible forces of nature. It is also about reconnecting us with our innocence and childlike sense of wonder. Can you remember what it was like to make believe that anything was possible? When everything in nature was alive, each flower with its own personality, each water droplet, each rock and each blade of grass its own story to tell? We are reminded now to take a pause in the adult, rather dry hustle and bustle of our routines to connect with the soul of nature. Isn’t it also so that we try too hard sometimes to consciously control and direct our lives without accessing our deeper, subconscious and superconscious wisdom? The more immersed we are in nature, the easier it become to access the so-called invisible forces within and around us…those forces in operation that we cannot normally see because we are too intent on doing this or that, becoming quite embittered when things don’t pan out the way we want.

The sunset symbolizes a sense of personal fulfillment that is realized when our defenses have dropped, and we can surrender to the closing chapters of a long day or week. It’s easier for most people to express their natural selves when they’re less charged up and more relaxed. Perhaps this is a opportune moment to relax your tight shoulders, heavy mind or heart, and to simply breathe, and be. If you live close to a stream, some trees or other greenery you might seek refuge there, and otherwise imagination will do just fine. In these sacred moments of quietude, your vision may become heightened. Inspiration may come. The rustling of the leaves in the breeze or the patterns formed in clouds can be the nature spirits’ ways of communicating with us, if we but stop to pay attention.

At this time of year leading up to Samhain (October 31st) the invisible world is increasingly being made visible, and the visible phenomena we are accustomed may become invisible. Everything animate and inanimate has its own invisible aura, its own “forcefield” around it that we brush against or interact with both while awake and while we sleep. Now, in this moment, you may wish to reflect on what it is that you’d like to become more consciously aligned with. Is there a particular aspect of nature that you would like to connect with, manifest, or heighten within yourself? There is a being, a devic consciousness of that aspect of nature that is available whenever you decide to make the connection.

Self-Discovery and the Blood Moon

The Blood Moon is waxing tonight Aries, which is a sign concerned with self image and identity, as the springboard of consciousness from which life experiences evolve. It is conjunct with Uranus – the planet of individuation, freedom, flashes of brilliance, intuition, eccentricity and radical change…are you having any significant breakthroughs in your life at this time?

I found this video to be spot on and relevant to what’s transpiring on the planet and for myself. Some people might take serious offense to it so just take what resonates and toss the rest.

“It’s ultimately about the discovery of yourself…not about society or other people. Life is about the discovery of who and what you are”

 

Transforming Greed

As I type this the Moon is in Capricorn having just conjoined Pluto, and I’m noticing how the topic of money, survival, and the concept of greed seem very intertwined in a paradigm shift that is currently taking place in the world. As much as I have an innate faith in the human race despite all odds, there are moments when like most of us, just find our state of affairs almost impossible to bear.

Greed, one of the so-called seven deadly sins, infects all of us at some point in our lives, whether we are the perpetrator or perpetrated ones, where the best or most goods have been stuffed away at the expense of another or others’ benefit and wellbeing. We don’t like to look at or talk about this, because it makes us itch, and is all too easy to point the finger at another than to honestly contemplate how greed may reside within us.

In order to transform greed we must first come to a better understanding of what it even means. The thing about this is, I don’t believe in what theorists call the “greed gene” and that greed is a necessarily a natural occurrence for us. Just like the seven deadly sins, greed is a result of a very deeply rooted fear – the fear of loss, being left out, and of not having enough. Greed causes one to steal for fear that if they do not they themselves may be robbed. It is completely irrational and insane. This is the way that our very government functions.

In understanding the origins of greed, we must also consider the impact that trauma has upon us and the habits that ensue from the holding pattern of an unreleased trauma. If one did experience a traumatic loss through famine, war, or some other disaster it should not be surprising if later in life that person subconsciously tried to compensate for an earlier period of shock and lack, when they felt they had no defense, no resources in order to support themselves in the face of opposition.

Right now we need to look at greed without fear and take a look at what it is doing to our planet. The Solar Eclipse in Scorpio on the 23rd of October will be like the bright open eye in the sky that illuminates many dark corners and shows us what we must let go of in order to have what we truly want. If we don’t use this opportunity wisely it may haunt us into the year 2015, with explosive results in an economic crash between the eclipses of March and September.

It is commonly said that there is a financial crisis every seven years, and our last major one was in 2008, with a record of over 3 million foreclosure filings. Supposedly, our negative financial information such as late or unpaid bills, foreclosures, and bankruptcies generally disappear from credit reports after seven years. Interestingly, the planet Saturn associated with limitations, tests, and delays also has a cycle of seven and a half years. Saturn, Capricorn’s ruler is the keeper and voracious eater of time, and in Scorpio where he currently transits, we are indeed pressured for time and all the resources we can muster until December 23rd. Please, let’s not spend all of our money on Christmas presents that we’ll be in debt over for the next seven years of our lives.

Banks say that they will only lend to people with good credit but those are just the same people they lent to before, seven years later (the number Seven is relevant to the current Time frame we are operating from). Not only do banks make money out of thin air – a topic that anyone who can read can research on the internet these days, but we can no longer afford to place our faith in a monetary system that leaves us high and dry any more than an atheist can give his or her heart to Jesus.

Not that I’m a fan, but Austrailian philsopher and skeptic David Stove said, in obvious criticism, “If Darwin’s theory of evolution is true, no species can ever escape from the process of natural selection.” We need and are indeed being presented with new, upgraded theories to permeate our Collective Mind. Greed need not be factored in if we realize that we’re all in this together, and that each person does make a difference and contributes to the whole.

Here’s a bit of Libran insight since we’re in its sign and the Aries/Libra axis of Full Moons until September of 2015: If we don’t want to see the massive “bubble” form in commodities that result in economic collapse, we have to stop supporting the greed-driven companies and their products that we share co-dependent relationships with. We have to go cold turkey in some cases on what we’re used to. That sounds terrifying to some people because how else would we survive? My answer would be by getting back to basics. Thanksgiving, coming right up, is one of the most sickening money-maker holidays of the USA to date, reminding Native Americans of the greed of white men who destroyed their villages. Just as in religious crusades, people should not be so sinful as to announce such deeds in the name of God, but more accurately, in the name of greed.

What makes more money than almost anything else in the world? War. Yes it does “take” money – our money, to make money, and war is a perfect example of the nightmare carousel that perpetuates disease, destruction and the desire for more, round and round on our planet with seemingly no end. These are just a few tidbits to mull over at anyone’s convenience, for whatever they’re worth, or not as the case may be.

We are not ready to stop using money, because it is still the most widely accepted means for our survival as a species. However, we can begin to shift our values toward what makes life truly meaningful, and raise our vibrational frequencies in the process so that we more easily attract everything that we need and want. For those who find it impossible to envision a life without money, inspiration may be found in this documentary about Heidemarie in Germany:

If we want to enjoy warm festivities with a clear conscious this year and in the future we actually have to use our sense of reasoning, creativity and intuition combined. We must’nt let fear, money or greed be the guiding light in deciding what to make, buy, or share.

Perhaps our new strategies and choices will seem strange to family and friends, and we may feel a temporary sense of alienation and shame. Many great ideas are scoffed at initially, and later come to be respected. Sooner or later, more of humanity will join the dance for true freedom and self expression for all.

Healing is Deconditioning

I stated recently in my talk on the Autumn Equinox with Pluto now in the shadow of its station to direct motion that many of us are in a process of intense deconditioning in all aspects of our lives. Relationships are a major highlight, but so is healing in a very broad sense.

Any effective form of healing basically addresses and helps to decondition us from falseness, programming and conditions that have weighed heavily in our consciousness and taken on some form of dis-ease, whether mental, emotional or physical.

Healing is therefore a process of elimination, rather than some external agent meant to make us “whole”.  It is not about ingesting this herb or undergoing that process in order to become more of what we already are or should be. It can however cause us to evolve more rapidly than we would if we remained incapacitated by our illness.

Whether subtle or extreme, healing is about purification, and in some cases exorcism (Pluto helps with this). Holistic practitioners and their methods of healing usually take into consideration that we are multidimensional beings, having experiences on many different levels, some beyond the scope of our ordinary consciousness. We are more than these bodies that we are temporarily inhabiting. Through a particular healing modality we may be assisted in freeing ourselves from various forms of mind control, outworn beliefs, harmful attachments and habits, and obvious manifestations of toxicity. Ultimately in any form of healing we are being restored to our own natural state of equilibrium, rhythm, and wholeness that is not to be compared to anyone else’s.

People are beginning to wake up to this knowledge on a massive scale. People are taking back their power from doctors and authority figures that were supposed to help keep their lives together, able to barely function in a flatlining, seldom optimal kind of way. People are realizing that healing comes from within.

In a genuine healing, our inner eyes are opened to more of the reality of our existence. The so-called wool can no longer be pulled over our Ajna centers. We might not like what we see, but we are no longer paralyzed and held captive by our hidden enemies, and the monstrous enemy of our own murky subconscious. It becomes easier to access our innate wisdom, beauty and abilities.

Over the next five weeks, whenever discomforts arise and when immunity seems to lower around you, remember the source of true healing. Whatever methods you choose, remember who navigates your ship, and sincerely question who it is who is thinking your thoughts.  When we change our thoughts, we change our experiences.

Hidalgo conjunct the Galactic Center

The asteroid Hidalgo (#944) was named after the Mexican priest and revolutionary known as “the father of Mexican independence”, and has thus come to represent the principle of self-assertion and standing up for one’s beliefs, particularly in relation to oppressed people and societies, or those whom the mysterious “majority” call the “minority” on this planet. Mexico’s Independence Day, Grito de Dolores is celebrated on September 16th, during which time Hidalgo will be making its final transit to the Galactic Center since February 2013 before moving into Capricorn late October. This asteroid does stay in both Scorpio and Sagittarius longer than the other signs due to its eccentric orbit, but it may be worthwhile to observe relevant trends in consciousness and media that are arising at this time and while conjunct the GC.

Every day during the past several weeks whether working online or through the grapevine I hear and see more accounts of people waking up, expressing their truth, standing up for their rights as human and divine. Conspiracy theories are no longer denigrated to mere theory but as unraveling the lies of history and paving the way to freedom for future generations.

miguel-hidalgoHidalgo doesn’t advocate for what is right or wrong according to religious standards but for what it deems as necessary toward truth and justice. This asteroid’s influences lean toward political causes, globalism, revolutionary ideas, and those of Spanish or Latin American descent. There is a strong desire to liberate those who are confined and constricted due to to racism, classism, and sexism and to protect and defend the underdogs of society.

One example of Hidalgo’s influence is chronicled by Zane Stein:

When Anwar Sadat set foot on the ground of Israel, Hidalgo was conjunct the IC. When agreements were signed in Washington DC, it was conjunct Pluto. And when the actual treaty was signed it was transiting in square to the above agreement’s Jupiter.

The year of Hidalgo’s discovery, October 31st 1920, the asteroid was in Aries and the Sun was in Scorpio. Communists in Soviet Russia had consolidated power, there was formation of the League of Nations, forerunner of the United Nations by which all nations may advocate for themselves in a cooperative manner, and the passage of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, giving American women the right to vote, among many other things recorded in history.

Hidalgo, denoting men of the Spanish and Portuguese nobility translates as the “son of something” or of someone, usually implying that is someone who is great. Wherever this asteroid falls and transits in our charts may indicate where we show our greatness, how we stand up for something, and what we advocate through both our words and actions. As an intermediary between Mars and Jupiter, Hidalgo helps summon within us the courage to act upon our beliefs and convictions – to not just talk the talk but walk the walk.

The more we recognize that we have all been oppressed and divided as a species, the more of our own power we reclaim to make amends and join forces as we slowly but surely disentangle from eons of mass slavery due to fear and greed.

So, go Hidalgo go!

Mars in Sagittarius 2014

I asked a good friend of mine yesterday how the Full Moon’s been treating her and she nonchalantly replied “It’s been ok for the most part. Over the weekend I jumped out of a plane…and yeah, that was cool” Following her reply was my uproar of laughter…”Oh ok, that’s all!” She proceeded to tell me how much I’d probably love sky-diving too, once I give it a try (which she declared with confidence that I will at some point…we’ll see…..maybe some time when Mars is transiting Sagittarius I’ll find the nerve!).  We talked on for a bit, sharing insights and encounters. “Yes, that sensation of total unexpected calmness makes sense! It’s kind of like the time I went inside of a cage and pet a tiger”, I said. We both agreed that either we’re just plain stupid or we’re on to something here…something……so enlivening.

Relevant things we have to look forward to this fall:

Rock-Climbing-Wallpaper

Mars enters Sagittarius on September 13th until the October 26th. It forms a reckless sesquiquadrate to Uranus the next day on the 14th as Mercury enters the shadow of its Retrograde through October that will also station Direct in Libra on October 26th. The planet of fiery passion in the sign of adventure spell out sass, splendor, and spectacular dances within the borders of death.

Mars in Sagittarius is as much about savoring the last strawberry we may ever eat to testing our limits on how much hot sauce we can down, how much ice we can sit in, how long we can maintain an intense yoga posture, or how fast we can drive when nobody else is on the road.  You get the picture that you don’t have to be a rocket scientist or an athlete to appreciate the fine qualities that this transit potentially stimulates within and around us.

It really can also help us to also get off our haunches if we’re stuck somewhere, somehow, and can’t see a solution or a way out. Mars in Sag says “When there is a will, there is a way!”

Whether you’re timid about asking someone on a date or just need to make some pretty huge and disconcerting changes in your life that completely take you out of your comfort zone, take heart – for Mars in Sagittarius is here to save the day – and the month. This super hero combination won’t let us not do what we want or need to do, no matter how bumpy, trippy or intimidating it may seem.
