The SUN Crosses the ‘Phoenix Point’ from SCO to SAG: Rising – and Raising Vibrations, with the Inner Heart Light.

21 Nov

 

Today Nov 21 at 7:05 pm PST, the SUN moves from SCORPIO to SAG – across the ‘Phoenix Point’.
This week (started with the New Moon last Saturday) is very ‘Phoenix’ like:
We made it through ‘THIS’, burnt a lot through and off, and rise again… from the deep intense Scorpionic ‘underwater’ realm to a Fiery, Spirited Sagittarian sense of Knowing that might sound like: “We got through it, and see the picture more clearly now!”.
Yet, do we like what we see?
And do we really know where we’re going from here?

SATURN in SAG these years (Sept 2015 until Dec 19, 2017) doesn’t make the SAG Journey feel like a walk in the park or a joy ride. It’s been rather showing humanity the shadow of SAG:
‘More’ isn’t always ‘better’, and “I know better than you!”, “Our belief is superior to yours” heed karmic boomerang effects, are separative, and obstacles on the spiritual path.

Now we’re literally in the landing phase of SATURN in SAG – last 4 weeks!
An excellent time for a review of the teachings of the last years.
MERCURY will starts its retro journey also from close to SATURN (and will meet SATURN on Nov 7).
Let’s take time to reflect…

 

In combination with PLUTO in CAP, the Zodiac sign ruled by SATURN, deep, dense, old, historic power stuff layers built up over time, and running through societies and cultures is coming ‘up and out’ now.
Just saying: Plutocracy – Greek origin, literally: power of / dominion by the wealthy.
Here’s an excellent historic documentary film called Plutocracy that I found when researching.

In a simple astrological formula:
PLUTO = it gets intense as it changes.
CAPRICORN = “I use” (resources and time) / shadow: Abuse and exploitation – to ‘optimize’/ get the most out of it.

SAG and CAP are intertwined these days, via SATURN – which gives the ‘usual’ high-spirited SAG a heavier, weighty, shadow conscious, karmic tone – to mature and ‘ground’ the energy in integrity.

As we step into the SAG season of the year it has still a SATURN undertone:

  • What are truly the best gifts we can make to others and ourselves these days?
  • What’s with the ‘Christmas Spirit’ – independent of materialism?
  • What brings ‘the Return of the Light’?

Indeed, where is the light in the SAG world these days?
The very grounded Hermit in the landscape of the Johfra painting holds a lantern, representative of carrying our soul light that sheds a spotlight on the step ahead but doesn’t allow us to get too much ‘ahead of ourselves’. A good image for SATURN in SAG.

Time to give ourselves the ‘Ring’, and commit to a Path of Heart and Cour-age. Let’s be rooted in our Hearts, and not be held back by fears, to follow our Heart!
Always a good reminder that the Sagittarian Archer/ess pulls the arrow back to her / his HEART while aiming high!

As we connect in Heart Consciousness we not only rise in our own vibration but raise vibrations that affect those around us, and energetically a whole ‘field’.

 

If you’re a Sagittarian by SUN sign you would have had SATURN on your SUN sometime between 2015 and end of this year, a major maturation of Spirit (that’s ‘due’ every 29 years), and perhaps some karmic ‘graduation tests’ too, when it comes to trusting yourself, your intuition and knowing, being in your natural authority, and on your Path.

 

Chakra Awakening

 

In the Chakras, the SUN is astrologically related to the CROWN Chakra, and SATURN to the ROOT Chakra.

I’m feeling called to offer another ROOT-to-CROWN Astrological Chakra Journey from early January on, possibly even already starting on Dec 28 – would be a beautiful alignment.
With SATURN then in CAP – very rootsy!

Let me know if you’re ready to come on board!
No prerequisites, re: Astrology or Chakras. An open mind and heart are good assets.
Here’s the FB Event for a previous journey, to give you a sense.

 

Much Love for the Sagittarian Times ahead!
May our Heart Light lead the way!

On Nov 21 at 1:22 pm PDT, the SUN moves from SCORPIO to SAG – across the ‘Phoenix Point’.
This weekend and early next week are very ‘Phoenix’ like:
We made it through ‘THIS’, burnt a lot through and off, and rise again… from the deep intense Scorpionic ‘underwater’ realm to a Fiery, Spirited Sagittarian sense of Knowing that might sound like: “We got through it, and see the picture more clearly now!”.

SAGITTARIUS and CAPRICORN are intertwined these days, via SATURN – which gives the ‘usual’ high-spirited SAG a heavier, weighty, shadow conscious, karmic tone – to mature and ‘ground’ the energy in integrity.

The SUN will pass the ‘gate’ of SATURN in SAG on Dec 10.

Do you believe this?  Have you experienced this?

If you’re birthday is round Dec 10 you have SATURN on your SUN these days / weeks / months, a major maturation of Spirit (that’s ‘due’ every 29 years), and perhaps some karmic ‘graduation tests’ too, when it comes to trusting yourself, your intuition and knowing, being in your natural authority, and on your Path.

 

Chakra Awakening

 

In the Chakras, the SUN is astrologically related to the CROWN Chakra, and SATURN to the ROOT Chakra.
On Dec 13, we’ll reach in our present Crown-to-ROOT Astrological Chakra Journey the ROOT Chakra and SATURN! Gotta love synchronicities, showing us we’re naturally connected.

If you feel called to Chakras 4 to 1 (Heart, Solar Plexus, Sacral, Root), with YOUR related Astrology, you are welcome to join us in the next weeks on Tuesdays, in person or via Skype. In other words, drop-in welcome.
I’d like to offer another ROOT to CROWN Astrological Chakra Journey from early January on, likely Jan 4. Let me know if you’re ready to come on board! No prerequisites, re: Astrology or Chakras. An open mind and heart are good assets.
Here’s the FB Event for the current Journey: https://www.facebook.com/events/1687579281560705/

* Gifts of the PISCES – VIRGO FULL MOON (Aug 29): Ride the Waves, Immersed in Your Element!

30 Aug

* Gifts of the PISCES – VIRGO FULL MOON (Aug 29)

Maya Gabeira in Hawaii

Big wave surfer Maya Gabeira in Hawaii

Ride the Waves, Immersed in Your Element!

In Flow, and in the Practice.

In Loving Service.

Earth & Moon

Earth and Moon – We are all in THIS together.

After the FULL MOON its gifts are being released – always true, especially for this one.

This time, a big wave of them, as the post-Full PI MOON this afternoon (exactly at 3:20 pm PDT) engages and aligns with NEPTUNE (which is in its own Piscean domain from 2012 – 2026!).

And the ‘Medicine’ of vulnerability and connectivity reveals itself, under the post-Full PI MOON tomorrow morning (exactly at 9:19 am PDT) connects with CHIRON (which is in PI from 2010 – 2018 / 19).

We ARE all in this together.

In Nov / early Dec (right around the UN Climate Conference in Paris http://www.cop21.gouv.fr/en ) SATURN, then in SAG, will square NEPTUNE in PI.

Beyond right and wrong, agenda, religions and politics there is something bigger at stake that connects us all. Climate-on-Earth knows no boundaries and no borders.
Along came an apropos gift from the Full Moon, and contribution from the Islamic world. Deep and powerful declaration! Never mind ‘religion’, connect with the heart and spirit of it! http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/aug/18/islamic-leaders-issue-bold-call-rapid-phase-out-fossil-fuels?CMP=share_btn_fb

On this note, the VIR – PI axis has to do with problems (VIR) and soUlutions (PI).

Connecting deeper and beyond the mental, analytical plane is what the PI MOON, NEPTUNE, CHIRON offers and invites us into.

How can we access and dive into this sphere and field, without drugs and ‘altered states’? Rather in an intrinsic ‘United State of Being’?

With the polarity of two strong energy fields, SUN / JUPITER (the two largest heavenly bodies in our Solar System) on one side of the Earth, and our nearest one, the MOON, appearing as big as the Sun through our exact position in the dance, in the ‘foreground’ of NEPTUNE and CHIRON, this Full Moon can indeed wash a lot up, and might feel disorienting – or we may feel a permission to let go and open up to what IS.

As with every opposition, and esp. the Full Moon, as the ‘grandmother of all oppositions’ we are called to balance and bring together what seems to be polar opposite yet complementary.

The VIR – PI axis is all about…

… from the VIR side being ‘in our temple’ of alignment with our true, holistic nature, doing our wellness practice, and using this precious life time to dedicate our gifts and skills to make the world a better place. In other words, offering sacred service.

VIR is also about digesting experiences, ordering and organizing. In the body, it rules the small intestines.

Johfra Bosschart: Virgo

At the occasion of VIR coming in strongly, incl. JUPITER now for a year in VIR, I’d love to invite you to

* ASTRO~SOMATICS: Astrology and your Health, Wellness, and Wholeness

FRI Sept 11, from 2:22 – 5:55 pm

Right after the next New Moon – the Partial Solar Eclipse in VIR, is the perfect time that aligns so well as a start of a new 7-week process and journey with

* Astro~Alchemy – CHAKRAS & PLANETARY ARCHETYPES:

From ROOT to CROWN, from SATURN to the SUN

7 weeks, WED, 7:07 – 9:39 pm. Starting Sept 16, until Oct 28. Covering powerful early Fall 2015 times.

Details for both: https://www.facebook.com/Astrology.for.SelfRealization

… from the PI perspective which is all-encompassing, and nothing needs to be ‘done’ our ‘job’ is rather to perhaps get our ego and attachment to a certain outcome out of the way, be open, surrender, be available, allow, flow, hold space, or simply: BE present.

In our embodiment, PI rules the immune system, our aura, energy field, the subtle bodies and chakras (as a field).

JohfraBosschartPisces

Johfra Bosschart: Pisces & Neptune

So, a combo of both PI and VIR could look like this:

–       Ride the waves, immerses in your element.

–       Your skills are what comes easy.

–       Holding space for others can be the best service you can offer.

–       Clean up and play music. 

–       Energy Medicine. AstroSomatics.

–       Sacred Geometry.

–       Astrology and its practical, embodied benefits.

–       Being in the world, yet not of the world. Doing what needs to be done, yet not in attachment.

–       God helps those who help themselves. Doing our share, and trusting divine intervention.

–       Random acts of service bring fulfillment.

But of course, there is more to the energies that the Full Moon catalyzes.

There ‘she’ is – here we ARE, in the unifying / luna-fying field of the cosmic matrix round planet Earth.

PI - VIR FM 2015

What looks quite ‘simple’ in structure is due to a strong concentration of planets / SUN / MOON in PI, VIR, mid LEO, and early LI:
MOON / NEPTUNE retro and CHIRON retro in PI (exact today / tomorrow morning, Aug 29 / 30)

SUN / JUPITER in VIR (was exact on Wed Aug 26)

VENUS retro / MARS in mid LEO (exact Mon Aug 31)

LILITH / MERCURY / NORTH NODE in early LIBRA (Mercury / Lilith exact yesterday Aug 28, again Oct 3 with Mercury retro, and Oct 13 with Mercury direct; Mercury / NN exact today Aug 29, again Oct 10 under stationary Mercury; Lilith / NN exact Sept 9).

FULL MOON in SAG – GEM on June 2: Walk the Talk, with Head & Heart, and Unified!

2 Jun

FULL MOON in SAG – GEM tomorrow June 2 at 9:19 am PDT:
Walk the Talk, with Head & Heart, and Unified!

SAG - GEM FM 2015

The MOON crossed the ‘Phoenix Point’ from SCO into SAG this (Mon June 1) morning, at 11:39 am PDT – can you feel the lifting?
‘On the other hand….’:
Lots of GEMINI’esque talk and thought and action is going on these days, with Mercury (the headliner of Saturday – fully enlightened by the SUN and half-way through its retro phase: Birth of a ‘New Mercury’), and Mars / Sun (both unite on June 14).
For our GEM side, intellectual concepts, discussion, reading, writing, and learning are a ‘given’. The AIR sign GEM loves to play with ideas.
SAG on the other hand, brings spirit and the heart into the picture. Seeing is believing, or believing is seeing – a vision emerges from the heart.
Ideally, under this Full Moon, we bring ‘best of both worlds’ together. Head and Heart.
And walk (yay, SAG literally likes walking and moving in the landscape, flying through space, and with spirit) our Gemini talk.

SAG is also about images and symbols, so let’s see what the Sabian Symbol for the Full Moon has to say:

The SUN will be at 11˚49’ GEM, and the Moon at 11˚49’ SAG.

12˚ SAG:
A FLAG TURNS INTO AN EAGLE; THE EAGLE INTO A CHANTICLEER SALUTING THE DAWN.

Bald Eagle

Bald Eagle – picture credit: Ken Thomas

Keynote: The spiritualization and promotion of great symbols of a New Age by minds sensitive to its precursory manifestations.

In the background of this strange allegory we can recognize the deep-seated belief that the American nation and its basic democratic institutions were constituted to be the cradle for a new step in human evolution. The ‘flag’ is the abstract symbol of the nation; it becomes an ‘eagle’ – another U.S. symbol – when the concept is made alive by bold and transcendent action. The eagle symbolizes spiritual will and the power to rise to the highest possible altitude of consciousness and purpose. Flying at such an altitude, the eagle is the first living creature to perceive the rising sun. Having perceived it, it heralds it – and by so doing is identified with the crowing chanticleer, who had convinced himself that his resonant cry was responsible for the rise of the sun and the coming of a new day.

This… stage… speaks of ‘peak experiences’ instead of the wisdom found in the organismic depth of the body-consciousness. It urges us to bring our noblest ideals to actual life through the power of the spiritual will. A keyword might be ANNUNCIATION.”

Interesting, how the image for the Full Moon degree also reflects the Sun / Mercury conjunction: Spirit and Consciousness informs and leads the message.

The AC degree of the U.S. chart is actually at 12˚13’ SAG – so it will be interesting what this Full Moon brings to our neighbour down South.

 

* Mutable T-Square of the Full Moon with NEPTUNE on June 2:
~ Unifying ~
Looking at the Full Moon chart, with the Mercury retro / Sun / Mars trio in GEM, and the Moon in SAG, they both square Neptune (now stationary, going retro on June 12) in PI – and together form a ‘Mutable T-Square’ (in the 3 mutable signs GEM, SAG, PI).
In all these comings and goings, and (ahh, thank you, transpersonal Neptune!) it’s good to remember that THIS and THAT are ultimately expressions of the ONE.

Can you surrender, drop judgment and doubt (SAG – GEM ‘low vibrational tempters to the mind’), and be ok with what IS, even though it might not be what you thought is is or where it would go?
Could be a blessing in disguise…

> Inspired Creative Action <

After the Moon will have passed through Saturn’s ‘eye of the needle’ (yes, it requires and trains In-sight!) on June 1, and after the Full Moon and opposition with Mercury retro and Mars in GEM ‘she’ will go into an energizing Grand Fire Trine, with Jupiter in LEO and Uranus in AR, on Tue June 2 evening.

Time for letting the good times roll, or, even better perhaps, BE awake and authentic (Uranus in AR), creative, loving and heart centred (Jupiter in LEO), and in-spirited and inspiring (Moon in GEM).

Be moved by spirit, and follow the Heart!

The VIRGO – PISCES FULL MOON on THU March 5, AND ‘her Entourage’ opened the scene for this super charged month of March, and brings us to the Line-up of the 3 BIGGIES this month (one of them is a major TWO-in-ONE):

March 14: SATURN goes retro (until Aug 1)

March 16: URANUS – PLUTO SQUARE # 7 out of 7

March 20: NEW PI / AR cusp MOON / TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE leading over into the

SPRING EQUINOX 2015

 

COSMIC CATALYST # 1:
March 14:
SATURN in SAG goes retro (until Aug 1) – 
Clearing old Narratives and Beliefs.

Saturn tilted

March is quite the ‘Saturn’ themed month, since our ringed ‘tough love coach’ is doing its yearly ‘U-turn’ backwards, from Earth perspective. Therefore Saturn is moving very slowly, and becomes a ‘stationary’ focus.

Which means astrologically, we are called to zoom in on our themes with Saturn in early Sag, realize the sooner the better, as Saturn goes retro, how they go back to our old, original Saturn themes, and clear those obstacles and blockages ‘on the path’.

Saturn will be retro until Aug 1. Yes, this is the ‘regular’ yearly process of 4 1/2 month retro phase, and 7 1/2 months direct phase.

 

Ok, ok, let’s start with where we’re AT with Saturn.

Which is Saturnian, to say: Start HERE-NOW, one step at a time.

Saturn in our Chakras rules the Root Chakra.

Being anchored in what grounds us: Our body, our practice, form and structure, and especially the EARTH. Roots give support, and the Earth gives roots support, says the Muladhara Root Chakra…

We just completed last week another Astro~Alchemy of Chakras & Planetary Archetypes 7-week process with Crown / the SUN! – Big gratitude to all of you in the groups! So much was coming together, was processed and liberated as we came together every week. Alignment happened.

 

Next TUE March 10, 3:03 – 5:35 pm, timely in a stationary Saturn week, we start the next Astro~Alchemy of Chakras and Planetary Archetypes, with ROOT / Saturn.

We have space for 2 – 3 joiners. No previous experience with Astrology or Chakra awareness necessary. It all unfolds organically.

So what’s up (or down) with that Saturn retro phase, from March 14 – Aug 1, 2015?

YES, Saturn is now in SAG, since Dec 23, 2014, and until Winter Solstice 2017.

However (Saturn likes caveats…), the retro journey in Spring / early Summer 2015 will take Saturn back over the Phoenix Point into the tail end of Scorpio (until 28°17 SCO), and then back out over the Phoenix Point into SAG again on Sept 17 – not to return into Scorpio until 2042. Yes, 2042.

So, again, when’s that Saturn-in-Scorpio phase this year???

June 14 – Sept 17.

 

Scorpio

This piece of news might not sound so attractive (Saturn typically shows what we reject or resist) but it is a window for purposeful residual emotional processing. Let’s use it well. It’s related to the area in our lives related to where late SCO is in our charts (e.g. 5th house: children, inner child, creativity, 7th house: significant others, partners, 11th house: social arena, co-creation with others, friends…).

Saturn brings lessons that our ego might not be so eager to embrace in the first place, but in hindsight, these experiences mature and ‘ripen’ us, so that we eventually carry less, when it comes to conditioning, karma, old burdens, limitations and restrictions, authority and parental issues.

The point is to lead life from what truly grounds and anchors us in ourselves and our own purpose, why we are here, embodied on Planet Earth at this time.

The whole year 2015, Saturn hovers over the Phoenix-out-of-the-Ashes Point, from early SAG, back to late SCO and forward into early SAG.

 

PhoenixRising

If you have planets, Sun, Moon, AC in late SCO / early SAG you probably experience Saturn’s influence which can feel heavy, even depressing. Saturn shows what in you is coming to a close, and you don’t have to carry it anymore. Finish well, says Saturn.

  • Where can there be a good clear completion?
  • Why are you ‘grounded’ and not quite yet ready / able / giving yourself permission to take flight and soar? Residual processing wants to go into that area.

Saturn in SAG calls to be done with old narratives and limiting beliefs based on these stories.

Very timely now to acknowledge the ‘symptoms’ (without judgement, otherwise you go into a loop…) where you experience yourself as held back by inner stories wrapped around:

“I can’t go there (you fill in the blanks), or not yet….. BECAUSE…” Here’s the key that can open the lock of your inner restraint dungeon.

Saturn in SAG inquiry questions are:

  • What prevents you from being FREE?
  • What do you focus on?
  • What ‘turned the light off’?

Since Saturn is about to go retro, it’s time to go inward-backward.

No need to be extra frustrated (and hard on yourself or judgmental about others) when things haven’t rolled and gone ahead in a direction you thought you would go.

Rather than just waiting for ‘a better time’ to be on this or that journey it is now the time to clear old conditioning that limits our connection with Spirit, prevents us from following up on our vision and being on the path.

Johfra Boschart: Sagittarius, ruled by Jupiter

SAG, the centaur with bow and arrow is connected with the animal body (the horse), the human growing out of the animal, and spirit arrows of vision, intention, prayer, aspiration, connecting us to the Divine.

And, SAG is also Chiron after his ‘Hero’s Journey’, immortalized as a star constellation. All that inspired Sagittarian wisdom may well come from our Chironic Medicine Journey.

With the recent Full Moon on March 5, the PI SUN brings consciousness to Chiron (their exact conjunction was on March 7): Our often challenging journeys bear their own medicine that is a gift to all. We’re all in this together….and we don’t have to ‘suffer the experience’ anymore, as has been ‘noble’ in the Pisces Age paradigm – we are as FREE as our consciousness is.

We live in exciting, paradigm shifting times.

Check out the Uranus – Pluto Square feature below, and what I found out about a shift in sequence…

This could be an excellent time for a Saturn focused zoom-in Astrology session, or an Astro*Coaching sequence with 3 – 5 sessions to go deeper and explore where you have a ‘knot’ or feel blocked in these themes, and what’s specifically related in you. The ‘diagnostic tool’ of Astrology helps identify issues very directly and fast. My clients are amazed and love that, and I love fast results too. Astro*Coaching sessions offer clear awareness that helps you with focused processing, and leads to freedom FROM limiting conditioning (rather than what the general ‘clichee’ is: prediction of what’s to happen, within the ‘box’).
The present astrological alignments are phantastic catalysts for breakthroughs.

Saturn teaches and shows us in REAL LIFE that every ending and closing of a door takes us over a threshold, may well be an ‘initiation’, and leads to a new phase, which can be a new chapter, a new structure from which we will be operating, an ‘upgrade’, a freedom from the ‘known’.

Well, the influence of Uranus is also involved in this…

Radical Newness, just in time for the Spring Equinox – actually timelessly!

Evolutionary Transformation & Liberation of Cosmic Consciousness!

 

Calling forth

– Liberation and breaking free from what we’ve been carrying as dense and intense ‘baggage’, 

– Cathartic and catalytic breakthroughs in accelerated ways (could be a domino effect!), and

– Radical regeneration from the core, from spirit, from the soul.

ARE YOU READY to step UP and be FREE?

 

Painted Stairs Beirut 2

Painted Stairs, Beirut

 

This will be # 7 out of SEVEN exact squares between Uranus and Pluto these intense years of transformation and liberation.

Of course, the effect has been already on for a while, and will affect us for a while.

The ‘seed’ in the connection between these archetypal energies was planted during their last conjunction which was exact in 1965 / 1966 (in Virgo). Times of civil unrest, and revolutions around the world in the Sixties. This Spirit (Pluto) is now re-awakened (Uranus).

Old authoritarian, dominating, exploiting and wasteful structures that eat up our energy, time, and precious resources (Pluto reveals the shadow of what happens when Capricorn energy is being abused) are due for change, via evolution. As human consciousness is being empowered and liberated, they can become redundant and are being replaced by better and more respectful and inventive ways of working with resources (Capricorn), in more simplicity and sustainability, and with renewable energy.

 

Uranus in Aries brings a new consciousness, via uprising, via emergence, via emergency, via inventiveness, via awakening and liberation. It can be upsetting, and it wants to set us FREE to BE.

BE the Evolution & Revolution!

If you were born in the Sixties when the Pluto / Uranus conjunction happened you carry the signature of a generation of inventors and regenerators. What’s your contribution?

You’re also in the age of your Chiron return (round age 50), and time for the Medicine Wo/Man to emerge.

How have the processes you have gone through in life initiated you to be a mentor for others?

How has your journey become your medicine?

 

The collective Uranus – Pluto Liberation / Transformation process has been happening in 7 stages, since 2012.

There must be a the connection with the Chakras!

 

Chakra Awakening

Here is the sequence of Uranus – Pluto alignments, and related Chakras:

# 1: June 24, 2012 – Root

# 2: Sept 19, 2012 – Sacral

# 3: May 20, 2013 – Solar Plexus

# 4: Nov 1, 2013 – Heart

# 5: April 21, 2014 – Throat

# 6: Dec 14 / 15, 2014 – Third Eye

# 7: March 16, 2015 – Crown

What has been your experience with Chakra themes in this process? Your feedback is most welcome!

I welcome you to a private session, focused on this specific exploration. Can be very revealing and empowering to SEE.

For me, there has been a powerful process that kicked me into freedom, from the Root up, almost exactly aligned with the months of the Uranus – Pluto Squares.

Would you like to shed light on your own transformational and liberating process these years?

Since 2012, I’ve been exploring, testing, verifying and intuiting the hidden message in that connection.

One of the gifts of this process has been the ‘download’ close to the Solar Eclipse early Nov 2013 one morning that showed me in an instant how the Chakras connect with the 7 planetary Archetypes of our Solar System from Saturn to the Sun!

 

I am in deep gratitude to my dear friend Marina Halleran who is not in physical embodiment any more.

Marina was a master Yoga teacher and chanting facilitator, and as an Aquarian ahead of her time…. Chakras were a big theme for her. It is clear to me that her spirit and our connection led me to connect more deeply with Chakras, and their relation with Astrology.

And I am so grateful also to my friend Ocian Flow who facilitates Chakra journeys and dances in Victoria, and who invited me end of 2013 where the connection with the astrological Archetypes was made.

The rest is history, and since January 2014 there have been now 6 Astro~Alchemy of Chakras & Planetary Archetypes 7-week processes. I’m in awe how also the astrological alignments of each week have fit so well with the themes and Archetypes that we’ve been explore together. Deep processes have happened for participants, often cathartic but gentle, and ‘just-in-time’ 🙂

 

The most recent journey ended just yesterday Tue 03 / 03, with Crown Chakra, related to… the SUN  while the Moon (with Jupiter) was in LEO where the Sun is ‘at home’, gearing up to this potent FULL Moon, and just before Crown Chakra related Uranus -Pluto Square # 7! Trust me, I didn’t ‘schedule’ it that way.
The next 7-week process starts next TUE March 10, right before the Uranus – Pluto Square on March 16 (what a signature at the onset!), starting from the Ground / Root up,  in the week of Saturn turning around.

You are welcome to register if you hear the calling. Looks like we have room for 2 – 3 joiners.

As we relate the 7 Uranus – Pluto Squares to the Chakras, we are with the upcoming  # 7 reaching the CROWN Chakra that connects us with Universal Consciousness!

 

Chakras 7 Crown

Each one of us is a channel for divine and cosmic consciousness.

Let’s allow our / THE light to shine, and creative Spirit to express itself through us!

 

A simple Chakra related mantra for the tension between Uranus in AR and Pluto in CAP is:

BE CROWN-ded! 🙂

 

Back to the 7-fold Uranus – Pluto Squares 2012 – 2015:

It mirrors a collective, historical, evolutionary process that’s a birth of a new consciousness.

 

Our very first experience with Pluto is the process a embryo of being pushed through the birth canal, by forces of nature. Intense, and ‘overpowering’, jet just natural. We can’t go back, and must go where we are supposed to be: Into new Life!

Our very first experience with Uranus is coming out of the womb, taking our first breath as a newborn.

 

Likewise, humanity on Planet Earth is now going through a very intense, transformational (Pluto in CAP), and renewing (Uranus in AR) r/evolutionary process, a coming out of the old ‘matrix’ / cocoon, and into the big unknown.

The old world that’s dying / changing (Pluto in CAP), has, as know all to well, to do with the CAP shadow of hierarchical, intimidating, fear and separation based structures that are exploitative and abusive to nature, humanity, and not soulful.

Yes, yes, as the monster is dying and the transformation takes place, it’s gotten intense, cause: certain solid conditionings die hard, and all of us have some investment in them, even as judgement, resistance, passionate hatred, fear, anything that holds a strong charge.

 

Way more effective to let the old expire on its own, and in the meantime invest our energy and CAPacities into what we DO wish to see in the world.

Yep, good old Ghandi got it:

BEtheChange

 

Yesterday, in the Astrology & Chakra group, I was asked:

“How often do Uranus and Pluto align in such a charged way?”

A: Well, their last alignment was the conjunction in 1965 / 66 in mid Virgo (aha – this Full Moon sheds light on that too! – Oh my, the connections never end….). The conjuction, like a New Moon, marks the end of the old and the beginning of the new.

The 1960’s heralded the beginning of a new ERA, with the new cycle between Uranus and Pluto (Liberation / Transformation, Evolution / Revolution).

Now, in 2012 – 2015 (basically during the whole time of Uranus in AR, 2011 – 2018, while Pluto is in CAP, which is from 2009 – 2023), we’re at the crisis point where there is a LOT of pressure on humanity, societies, and us personally, to free up the old, and transform on deep core structural levels.

2046 – 2049, Uranus in Virgo (ha, one whole 84-year Uranus cycle since the mid Sixties) will oppose Pluto in early Pisces.  The overall end of the Pisces Age?

Ok, ok, I don’t want to be too futuristic and Uranian in that regard.

Let’s stay ‘closer to home’ and re: what’s UP nowadays, in these very interesting times…

Here’s another important thing to keep in mind about this last Uranus square Pluto alignment:

Up until the last square on March 16, Pluto has been most of the time ‘further ahead’ in CAP than Uranus in AR. Only at the  times when the square was exact in these years, Uranus caught up with and ‘hit’ Pluto.

From now on, Uranus will be further ahead in AR than Pluto is in CAP.

Which has a big consequence:

In the last years, when a planetary Archetype energy (say: personally our Moon in AR, CAN, LI, CAP) was transited, typically Uranus (in earlier degrees in AR) activated that energy first, then came Pluto (in later degrees in CAP).

So there was first a surprise kick, maybe something shocking, disruptive and upsetting, a surprise, ideally freeing, awakening, and paradigm shifting.

And then Pluto came along, and transited that energy which could have felt like a shut-down, overpowering, something went back into the shadow or underground. It showed about the power of the old system, and how it can come back in so many ways… It showed that something very old (CAP rules time and traditions) has to change foundationally, from the ground up. Our way of setting up structures and work with resources, and who’s got the power.

A classical example for this sequence was the Arab Spring in early 2011 when Uranus was just about to enter AR.

Also Fukushima which happened on the DAY (yes, March 11, 2011) when Uranus entered AR.

And you probably have your own examples.

Now what’s NEW from this last of 7 Squares on is:

Uranus goes ahead in AR (up to 20°30′ this year, in July) while Pluto, slower than Uranus, reaches ‘only’ 15°33′ in April. So transits happen from now on FIRST from Pluto and THEN from Uranus – here’s the shift.

Which is also in line with the sequence at birth:

First the intense Plutonic birth canal, and then the Uranian freedom into new life.

Sequence matters – get the idea?

I expect from this shift still deep and powerful restructuring processes that we all go through, and liberating breakthroughs following.

 

To be continued….

More about the following with the NEXT Astro~News.

Brief preview, since it IS another March Catalyst:

 

COSMIC CATALYST # 3:

March 20:

PI / AR Cusp Total Solar Eclipse & Spring Equinox, a.k.a. ‘Equipse’ 🙂 – The End Shall Be the Beginning!

Chick Hatching_large

 

The next New Moon on March 20 at 2:36 am PDT will be a South Node Total Solar Eclipse (at 2:45 am PDT), on the VERY LAST degree of PISCES, and of the whole Zodiac!

Followed by the Spring Equinox on the same day – at 3:45 pm PDT when the SUN enters Aries, and the Astrological New Year starts.

See New Moon chart, just before the Total Solar Eclipse:

 

Spring Equinox 2015 NM TSE

What a Spring Equinox Catalyst!

The process for the Spring 2015 Eclipses has already begun.

It wraps around South Node in Aries and North Node in Libra (Eclipses connect with the Nodes).

 

Uranus has been with the South Node in Aries, and is being activated by Venus, and – next week – Mars.

So let’s set the side of Aries free that takes too much energy, and is outdated, find new sustaining energy from the Libran quality (the North Node Full Moon Total Lunar Eclipse in Libra on April 4 will show us a lot about that), and balance it all out:

In other words:

  • Let’s release the Aries energy that’s in stressful fight-flight survival mode (rather than in peaceful harmony and balance) , reactive (rather than pro-active), competitive (rather than cooperative).
  • What are you a warrior of???
  • In what ways are you starting fresh in Spring?
  • Where are your partners?
  • How do you find harmony and synergy this Spring, and from now on???
  • What does it mean to be in ‘right relationship’ with others, with the world, with your purpose, with….?

The Total Solar Eclipse – an EXACT New Moon, ON the last degree of the whole Zodiac, is clearly a ‘super ending, leading into a brand new beginning’.

 

It is on the Birthing Point, which is also the Emergency / Emergence Point.

The path of the Eclipse goes over the Arctic, Greenland, and Norway, see http://www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/solar/2015-march-20 .Let’s hold the vision that humanity will birth a new consciousness round the importance of the Arctic, and Climate altogether! 

 

The Sabian Symbol for 30° PISCES where the New Moon falls says:

“A MAJESTIC ROCK FORMATION RESEMBLING A FACE IS IDEALIZED BY A BOY WHO TAKES IT AS HIS IDEAL OF GREATNESS, AND AS HE GROWS UP, BEGINS TO LOOK LIKE IT.

KEYNOTE: The power of clearly visualized ideals to mold the life of the visualizer.

Nathaniel Hawthorne’s story “The Great Stone Face” is used here in an allegorical sense to show the capacity for self-transendence latent in man. This power can be developed through visualization, where the emotions and the will are poured into the visualized image. At the highest spiritual-cosmic level this is the power used by the God-like Beings at the close of a cosmic cycle in projecting the basic formula (the Word) which will start a new universe. In a biological sense, it is the power latent in all seeds – the power to produce and guide the growth of the future plant. A most fitting symbol for the last phase of the cyclic process. Within the end of the cycle the seed of a new beginning  exists in potency – unless the entire cycle has proven to be a failure.

This is the last stage of the last scene of the great ritual play of cyclic transformations. It brings tu us a realization of the power of archetypes as factors conditioning life processes. Thus we could use as a final Keyword: ARCHETYPALIZATION.”

 

This potent Spring Equinox that comes with a Total Solar Eclipse AND carries the last Uranus – Pluto Square forward was calling to set up something very special:
