SATURN in AQ (started March 21): We the People! Preserving Freedom in the Face of F.E.A.R.

23 Mar

Dear Cosmic Friends in Our Humanity!

WE are the People.
ALL of us matter – equally.
We all breathe the same AIR.

Time for Social & Societal Responsibility in an Interdependent World.

 

Time to step fully into & show up with our Freedom – despite….
yes, SATURN presents challenges which turn into stepping stones.

Especially – one of SATURN’s all-time fave TT (Teaching Tools): F.E.A.R.
Which typically leads to disproportionate responses / reactions.
That’s also where SATURN’s simple  / simplicity motto comes in:
Less is More.

Easier said than done…!?
Well, that’s SATURNian too – since it takes resolve, consistent practice, and resilience – SATURN is the Cosmic Coach after all.

In the AQ World that translates into: Societal Fears evoked and sanctioned by science(?) and otherwise perceived authority.

With SATURN now freshly in AQ:
Where’s / what’s Freedom in the face of F.E.A.R.?

When fear strikes (well, can be used for so many primal emotions and obsessive thoughts) – ask yourself:

Is this… true?
How do I know it’s true?
Who would I be without this ‘truth’?
Who’s the True Me?

Let’s use all our tools to transform F.E.A.R. into L*O*V*E 
Perfect Times for This. We got This!

 

Let’s glean cosmic insights, astro-archetypal evidence, and come from a curious & detached perspective.

Is this the end of Society as we know it?
As it goes with AQ – the discussion has only just begun, and all of our bright & free / forward / out of the box thinking m
inds from a broad spectrum of Humanity (AQ), grounded in maturity and responsibility (CAP, where SATURN’s been in the last 2+ years) need to come together to preserve and live in Freedom (SATURN in AQ), as we co-innovate Community and perhaps even Society.

 

SATURN, the Archetype of the INNER ELDER / TEACHER / SAGE has just made a move, into AQ – for a testing / trial(!) time, March 21 – July 1, 2020, before ‘getting unfinished business’ at the end of CAP done in the Summer & Fall.


Then it’ll fully enter AQ on Dec 16
Then it’ll fully enter AQ on Dec 16 to be met by JUPITER on Dec 21(!).
Together, they’ll start a new 20-year socio-political-economical cycle at 1º AQ, based on social justice & community building.


The last one that started in May 2000 in TAU is ending this year – and we exhausted that one, as consumerism, materialism, capitalism & uber production with way too much waste has suffocated Mother Earth.

 

With SATURN in CAP since Dec 20, 2017 we were challenged to grow up, be more fully on purpose (in our own responsibility), and not waste anymore precious time and resources.
This year, as this period is ending it’s also a good time to take stock / do an inventory & review of Winter 2017 / 18 – Winter 2019 / 20:

  • How have you lived up to being in your integrity? Give yourself credit for showing up in it in scenarios that were challenging / a test and initiation / prototype to do it again in similar situations.
  • Have you simplified your life by saying NO to projects & people as needed, and are you good with the effects?
  • Have you put energy into what matters most to you?
  • How has this period (maybe through challenges you wouldn’t have ‘chosen’ but could see in hindsight what their purpose was) brought out your best?
  • What’s with respect for others as for yourself? Is there a reflection? P.S. you can’t change people, just yourself (hard enough that-is, ha-ha).
  • Have you been strengthening your Roots? Your own rootedness here on Planet Earth, in your body, and your connection with ancestral roots? Yep, and always good to eat root vegetables, and sit by a tree. I mean it.
  • How’s your connection with your biological and Spirit Elders – what has changed in the last 2 years?
  • How has your Inner Elder come out?


Checking in would make for a good project in the present home bound mode many of us find ourselves in – along with taking inventory of your physical environment, Yay to Spring clearing and re-organizing.
Which I find very therapeutic, and we’re in creative abundance / transformation mode rather than  in the recent partly artificial stressful scarcity / scare-city mode.

From this hopefully very GROUNDED & integral place we can move better into SATURN in AQ where bringing our Best to Community becomes super important.

Inventory can lead to re-inventing. And co-innovating.
Which takes us to AQ.

Yes, here’s where the challenge and opportunity in this global virus scenario lays: A crisis can lead to Social Leaps (very apropos AQ).
Well, IF Humanity collaborates and co-innovates
(which we’re already doing – yet it becomes ever so important and timely), rather than repairing & attempting to recreate / reinstate the old / expired and dysfunctional model.


Ringed SATURN represents the obstacles and challenges that seem to prevent us from something, yet which the Human Spirit (esp. in AQ) can rise beyond, which starts with seeing them for what they really are.

AQ used to be ruled by SATURN (representing social order and status / one’s place in society) until URANUS was discovered in 1781 – right between the American (1776) and French (1789) Revolutions. Equality & Freedom for ALL!

The Awakener Archetype Planet URANUS made its initial appearance to Humanity at a time when the Human Spirit was liberating & revolutionizing societies.
It represents paradigm shifts, breakthroughs, breaking free from the (outer and inner) ‘Old Regime’, and Being FREE as a Human among all other Spiritual Beings in Embodied Form.

Ultimately, as spiritual teacher Krishnamurti said: Freedom without an opposite (otherwise it’s not true freedom!).

 

While SATURN  – presently ever so obviously – apparently restricts and brings obstacles to Aquarian Freedom, let’s bring another ancient & timeless paradigm shifter into the picture to make clear what we might not see:

Ganesha – Elephant headed Hindu god, known as the ‘Remover of Obstacles’ on the path, and Guru that takes us from the darkness (of not seeing what the obstacles is / was) to the Light.

Elephant headed Ganesh, known as the ‘Remover of Obstacles on the Path’ is buddies with SATURN, and can be invoked to bring the (actual) obstacles to the light, whatever they may be, and show a path to overcome or release them.


A friend from Germany wrote to me yesterday, saying,
“Nature would be so beautiful now, if there wasn’t the Dark Cloud hanging over everything.”

Sums up the societal atmosphere.
The dark invisible cloud – affecting humanity (very much apropos SATURN in airy AQ which rules clouds and vapours…):
The cloud of the virus, and even more so, the cloud of fear.


For starters – to come from a good foundation in socially responsible action:

Let’s unmask(!) debilitating / paralyzing / obsessive fear first.
It comes in so many disguises, and typically pretends to protect.

Humanity (AQ) is these weeks (months?) of uncertainty understandably gripped by fear. Yet, that’s SATURN’s low vibration, which is ironically / obviously negatively impacting our immune system – also a SATURN function.

Not only is ‘ordinary human life’ out of control / normal functioning.
Fear leads to separation (and vice versa – all SATURNian) – from one another, from the Universe, and from our strong vibrant core. The resulting vulnerable human state can be exploited and manipulated (e.g. into polarization and blame agendas, even demonizing ‘the other’, with the next level of a call for an externalized authority to ‘do something’).
Bottom line, when we’re in fear, isolation, and separation, we can be so much more easily controlled (externally and by internal ‘demons’).
SO important to check in in that regard, these isolating times.
While socializing is regulating our minds and emotions.
We’re social animals.

Not to say there shouldn’t be any protective measures from responsible governmental institutions.
Certainly YES to effective and intelligent / common sense protection of those people who are vulnerable – that’s what the social contract and our Humanity call from us.


Yet i.m.o. the governments shouldn’t overdo it in a way that an initially appropriate response turns into a massive ‘War on Virus’ ‘overkill’ operation (MARS – JUPITER – PLUTO in CAP – the activation culminated last weekend)
Plus: JUPITER will align 3 times with PLUTO end of CAP this year, already on Apr 4, again June 29 and Nov 12).
The BIG operation has the potential to cause more damage than good – to all of humanity and our social systems (AQ) if executive power (PLUTO in CAP) isn’t used wisely.

On a personal / human level (AQ) I’m thinking in terms of overdoing it of the scenario where now extensive numbers of people want to be COVID-19 tested. Again, important – but the purpose needs to be kept in perspective. Many if not most of the testees (SATURN) not because they have symptoms but out of fear – “to be on the safe side” – with the immediate effect of completely overwhelming the medical infrastructure (CAP) – leaving people stranded who’d really need it.
And hey, in case those peeps were tested ‘positive’ – assuming the effectiveness of the test (SATURN) – (do your research) – they’d have to self quarantine. If it was negative they needed to test again and again – until they’d be ‘positive’?
Back to the uncertainty.
A great example (w/o giving medical advice, just applying common sense and astro-archetypal reasoning) where i.m.o. SATURN’s motto Less is More comes in.
And where the ‘too much’ is primarily fear rather than facts based.
I’m also personally suspicious of the effects and even effectiveness (SATURN) of potential excessive mandatory testing (SATURN). Well – check it out yourself.

With this situation ‘evolving’ – a PLUTO thing – it’s super important now to stay in an empowered (PLUTO) / higher vibrational level.
Rather than giving all the authority to The Test and those in charge (SATURN – PLUTO), and I believe that’s also socially responsible.

The Golden Rule comes handy:
When it comes to contagiousness for vulnerable people – if you were vulnerable how would you like others to behave toward you? Do that. And if you are considering yourself vulnerable to infection please do what you need to to protect yourself, without panicking – stay grounded and feed yourself with joy and love and immune boosters!

Let the light of inner spiritual wisdom remove the obstacles – whichever they may be.
Jai Ganesh!

 

Anahata Yantra – Symbol for the Heart Chakra

Just felt called to consult with Louise Hay’s evergreen reference book Heal Your Body – now check this out! Hope it helps for awareness and prevention through transformation.

” Respiratory Ailments
Probable underlying theme: Fear of taking in Life fully.
Transformation / Affirmation: I am safe. I love my life.”

“Coughs
Probable underlying theme: A desire to bark at the world. See me! Listen to me!
Transformation / Affirmation: I am noticed and appreciated in the most positive ways. I am loved.”

“Influenza
Probable underlying theme: Response to mass negativity and beliefs. Fear. Belief in statistics(!).
Transformation / Affirmation: I am beyond group beliefs or the calendar. I’m free from all congestion and influence.”

 

Oh, and Lungs are related to the Heart Chakra.
Its Colour is Green. The Element is AIR. The Planet is VENUS.
Cultivating LOVE and being in the green lands of Nature is SO good for us.

That’s where also CHIRON & LILITH, together with the New Moon in ARIES tomorrow come in.
Wild Nature and our Inner Wild Nature is our Teacher & Healer.
Spring is Here!

Voila, here is the Chart of SATURN entering AQUARIUS:

As you see, it’s quite a celestial concentration end of CAP into AQ, also in PISCES and early ARIES.

Only half of the Zodiac – from early CAP to early CAN is occupied / and the chart is sliced into occupied and empty parts of the Zodiac by the Nodal axis. And NO Planet is presently (until Apr 25) retro. Lots of momentum – in certain areas.

We’ve obviously experiencing a huge deal of that late CAP intensity of governmental / infrastructural impact.
Now, there’s a gradual trend out of CAP into AQ, initiated by SATURN, and followed by MARS (on March 30), passing SATURN on the 31st.
We could see social / societal movements, incl, erratic conflicts, as MARS in the sign of URANUS will square URANUS on Apr 7 – day of the LIBRA – ARIES Full Moon. Let’s help funnel the energy into liberating outlets of energy.
SATURN will go into square with URANUS next year… we’re not quite there yet but precursors can show up in May when SATURN stations at almost 2º AQ – the furthest it goes this year:
A conflict between embodying Freedom and social / societal control / regulation / reglementation / responsibility.
And disruptive effects on the economy having dire / challenging consequences for society / humanity.

Sooo much PISCES energy we’ve been exposed to lately, incl. MERCURY retro (MERCURY super long & still in PI until Apr 10!), and SUN / NEPTUNE. Being overwhelmed, influenced / influeanza’d and feeling like going under, esp. media wise? Good to not get sucked in and brain washed, and do on-going ‘hygiene’ – on all levels, incl mental-emotional.

And then there’s the ARIES New Moon with CHIRON & LILITH coming up on March 24!
Taking the Medicine of Nature and our inner ‘wild’ authentic Nature. And show up always a-new, as Spring.

More about this in the next ASTRO~News blog post. Stay tuned.

 

URANUS Rules AQUARIUS Painting by Johfra Bosschart – Just as all the blossoms are now opening, we’re all equally growing toward the Light and infused by cosmic energy / Prana / Life Force.

An important motto for SATURN in AQ:
We the People…!


Yes, we’re all breathing the same AIR, receiving the same prana, and are in this together. Collaboration and co-innovation on all levels and across / beyond boundaries is now called for.

I don’t believe the crisis can be ultimately solved from the top-down (a la CAP) – that only goes so far, and is essentially of the old consciousness – but through collaboration of people in society (AQ).

Let’s keep our connections going – in co-creative & co-innovative AQ ways -, maybe via technology, psychic connection, distance walks.
‘Social distancing’ is so apropos SATURN in AQ – yet leading to random encounters with friends or ‘strangers’ (had a few of those in the park the other day, and it was delightful how the ‘ice broke’ and we talked rather than being all ‘zipped-up’).

And rather than just looking at / be flattened by the excessive media coverage about the symptom and ever more fear / panic responses let’s also investigate the systemic (very AQ) background.
Many voices need to be heard, even ‘far out’ / ‘crazy’ ones. True egalitarian collaboration gives everyone (beyond status, position, and hierarchy a la CAP) an equal chance for input.
SATURN will hold us accountable to be consistent with AQ principles.


Here’s a
hypothesis / question that popped up in my brain lab:
Is there a connection between the rolling out of 5G over the last months and the virus symptoms?
I wouldn’t be surprised at all if the recent / on-going massive 5G technology implementation affected the immune system of humans adversely. Are we / are those ‘in charge’ and the governments who are using their powers to not only roll out 5G but also super drastic measures to combat the virus missing the obvious?
It’s a scandal that 5G itself has NOT been tested for safety before installing it all over the World.

Well, and guess where the 5G ‘pilot roll-out’ has been strongest? China (apparently Wuhan was one of the first cities), South Korea, UK, Germany, the U.S. Check this article from Sept 2019(!). Could be mere coincidence…

And hey, crazy side-effect(?):
Now as so many people are home bound and restricted from work and socializing in public the only way to connect with others is via technology – hence, causing spikes in the usage of the networks, and likely a call for 5G to ‘handle it’.

Whether the hypothesis holds or not, we need to protect ourselves against the effects of wireless technology!

Esp since SATURN in AQ rules networks and technology. It’s ‘job’ is to heed warnings, and show cause & effect / consequences over time.
Less is More.

 

Dangers & Directions with SATURN in AQ


Dangers:

  • Systemic shut-down that’s hard to recover from.
  • Technocracy. Surveillance via giving data & authority to technology and to who’s behind it.
  • Societal control by an elite.
  • ‘Dark cloud’ over Humanity.
  • Fear of flying – literally and symbolically.
  • Restrictions of gatherings (social / communal, spiritual / religious, political) with devastating effects on the social fabric, and on basic human freedom.
  • Alienation and personal isolation, with mental health consequences.
  • Human Rights violations, esp. when it comes to Freedom.
  • Crisis can bring out the worst (lowest vibration) in Humanity.


Directions:

  • Freedom and intrinsic Authority in Humanity.
  • Pulling together in conscious group effort / collaboration / coordination of a diversity of faculties.
  • Not just social responsibilities in our circles of activity / influence, but societal responsibilities as citizens.
  • Community leaders and social influencers to show up and lead by example.
  • Light Leaders to step up and help Humanity to awaken.
  • Working with light & crystal energy.
  • Clearing attachments to the mental collective field.
  • Responsibly experimenting with free thinking alternatives.
  • United we stand!
  • Declaration of Sovereignty.
  • Co-innovation.
  • Crisis can bring out our Best.

 

SATURN in AQ historically

SATURN has a 29-year cycle (approx one human generation), and hasn’t been in AQ since Feb 1991 – Jan 1994.
A time of huge societal changes and rebuilding, esp. after the Berlin / East German Wall came down, with a domino effect on Eastern European Communist regimes…

I was stunned to find out the other day that A. Huxley’s dystopian novel Brave New World was released in 1932(!) when SATURN had just entered AQ (and just before Hitler was put into power in Jan 1933). Huxley died in Nov 1963 – on the same DAY as JFK(!) – yes, when SATURN in its 29-year cycle had again just entered AQ (1962 – 1964).


History comes in patterns and offers lessons (both SATURN themes).
Only briefly here, for the ‘most recent’ SATURN in AQ phases / starts.
So much more could be said and explored – leaving that to your memory / investigation.

* March – Aug 1932, and Dec 1932 – Feb 1935
Check out the grim timeline of 1933, esp. Hitler’s and the Nazi’s gradual take-over in Germany and their societal polarization & manipulation, when SATURN was freshly in AQUARIUS (March – Aug 1932 and Dec 1932 – Feb 1935).
Well, and years of Depression followed in the 1930’s besides Nazi Totalitarianism / Tyranny.

* Jan 1962 – March 1964, and Sept – Dec 1964
Starting in 1962 with the extension of the U.S. embargo towards Cuba, and culminating in the Cuban Missile Crisis in Oct when the World held its breath – a wrong leadership (SATURN) decision could have been detrimental for all of Humanity (AQ). Also that year apropos AQ: Colonial Independence of Algeria, Rwanda, Burundi, Yemen, Malaysia, Jamaica, Trinidad. And Nelson Mandela was incarcerated. Well, and 1963, J.F. Kennedy was assassinated.

* Feb 1991 – Jan 1994
Overall SATURN challenge: Rebuilding of Eastern Europe (and Reunification of Germany), after the Berlin Wall fell & Eastern European Communism disintegrated (SATURN – URANUS – NEPTUNE in CAP 1989 – 1990).
The timeline of SATURN in AQ started in 1991 with the brutal Civil War in former Yugoslavia between Croats & Serbs.
Estonia, Latvia, Ukraine, Belarus, Moldavia, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan all declare independence from the former Soviet Union. Communist Party activities are formally suspended, the Warsaw Pact is dissolved, and the Soviet Union seizes to exist.

There seems to be a common thread re:
Communism, Socialism, ‘National’ Socialism (as the Nazi party called itself) vs Freedom of the People.

Pls note that both the ‘People’s Republic’ of China (* Oct 1, 1949) and the U.S. A. (* July 4, 1776) have their MOONs in (early and late) AQ (hey, that’s also Lady Liberty…).

Protective / restrictive SATURN approaching it (first for China, 2020 / 21, then the U.S., 2022) doesn’t bode well for Freedom. Community Leadership is called for, and even System Changes are possible.

The U.S. are now also moving into their (249-year cycle) PLUTO Return (2020 – 2022 exact, has been building up).
Power – intensity – shadow – transformation – regeneration from the constitutional core is all I’m saying here…

 

SATURN in AQ in YOUR Chart…

…shows where YOU are called to be in community collaboration, rather than going into separation, which areas of life call you for that (relationships, career, creativity…),  and in which  other dynamics (Aspects to other Planets).

If you have SUN, MOON, AC, Nodes, or Planets in AQ, and for all of us, where CAP is in our charts, this is a 2 1/2-Year Initiation phase to cultivate social & societal responsibility – and freedom from within.
Your as Our Humanity Matters!

 

Are you in a SATURN Return ‘Generation’?

  • If you were born between Feb 1991 – Jan 1994 you’ll have your 1st SATURN RETURN (round age 28 – 30).
  • If you were born between Jan 1962 – March 1964, and Sept – Dec 1964, this will be your 2nd SATURN RETURN (round age 57 – 59).
  • And if you were born between March – Aug 1932, and Dec 1932 – Feb 1935 you’ll have your 3rd SATURN RETURN (round age 86 – 88).

Full Circle to be in your Natural Authority, and to show up in your best in community & society!
Could be (well, definitely) a good time to check in with trusted cosmic reference & guidance.

ASTRO CONSULTATIONS

Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to Your ‘Inner Cosmic Compass’.
I’d love to inspire you to be in alignment with, and smoothly ‘ride’, those ‘auspicious’ or ‘challenging’ waves of cosmic energies that present themselves at a given time, and, similar to climate and weather, affect our human energy field.
Why?
Because it leads to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel connected with yourself in the bigger evolution. Ultimately, you can dwell in a witnessing place in the ‘Hub of the Wheel’ where you are less and less affected, more and more liberated, and self-realized.

The birth chart is an incarnational map to identify your ‘original imprint’and themes that are showing up as ‘issues’ in your life. 

I help you see how you don’t need to be unconsciously identified with them, and they don’t have to run your life. I welcome you as a client who is not seeking a ‘reading’ from me (“What’s going to happen TO me?”, “What am I supposed to do?”), but to be supported in accessing your own wisdom source, especially in times of a challenging transitions, stuckness, transformational crisis, or for perspective at a crossroad, dilemma, or empowered choices.

This is to empowered and liberating ways of working with the ancient and timeless gift of Astrology!    

Feeling called to explore your own Cosmic Map, and how it can guide you on your Earthly Journey?
Come over / let’s meet online, for your private Astro session!

GURU PURNIMA Full Moon Blessings – with the ‘Astro Gurus’ JUPITER and SATURN

16 Jul

Dear Astro~News Reader,

indeed, there’s a lot to today’s Full MOON in CAP – CAN / Partial Lunar Eclipse!

Theme is (see Eclipse post): Transforming the Old – Being ONE Love!

Clearly, this Eclipse MOON with SATURN / South Node, VEGA, and next to PLUTO gets our attention, and has us release old attachments, judgment, and conditioning, to come back to the Light of Consciousness, and of the Loving Heart.

A la MERCURY retrograde, I found again this Ram Das article A Heavy Curriculum– very apropos the projections about change and judgment going along with it:
“If somebody is a problem for you, it’s not that they should change, it’s that you need to change. If they’re a problem for themselves that’s their karma, if they’re causing you trouble that’s your problem with yourself…..”

  • What’s our job when people ‘are difficult’?
  • How do our lunar emotions and needs (like, for them to love and appreciate us) have power over us, pull you into judgment and separation (SATURN) and out of Love?
  • What needs to deepen to change (PLUTO) in this?

A heavy curriculum… (a la CAP)… yet lightened and transformed in the Heart.

I get it. Been there with family, other ‘karmic partners’, and even ‘random people’…

This Full Moon also helps us connect with ‘Ancient Essence’ – the essence of the Ancestors (PLUTO in CAP, super close to the MOON). Biological Ancestors, ancient Teachers, Ancestors of the Land…
Maybe their Spirit is speaking to us… helping us transform old (usually fear / separation based) energies that prevent us from being in the Love and in Heart Space.

 

In Hindu and Buddhist tradition, the Full Moon in July is the Guru Purnima / Guru Puja, dedicated to the inner and outer Guru.

Ganesha

Ganesh, the ‘Remover of Obstacles’ is invoked at the onset of a journey.

We could all use some Ganesh energy nowadays / -years…
SATURN (ruler of CAP) is presently IN CAP (Winter Solstice 2017 – Winter Solstice 2020) where karmic challenges for ‘the journey’ / the path arise.
Only to teach us what our inner blocks, judgments, and resistance are, and handing it over to PLUTO in CAP to help with the transformation – as things are irreversably evolving collectively.

Dense stuff, perhaps. Heavy curriculum?
May the Inner Teacher and light bringer show the way, and lead by example, just like the CAP goat slowly but surely climbing up the mountain, and the CAP SUN climbing up the Ecliptic.

 


OM_concentric
“Ohhh, I don’t have a Guru, nor do I want one!” is what one might hear from us Westerners…

GU-RU means ‘simply’ “From Darkness to Light” – one who removes darkness and brings light. 

“Guru Purnima is celebrated on the day of the year when the SUN is closest to the Earth and the Full MOON reflects the brightest light.
It is a holy day, and an especially beneficial time to make fresh resolves for spiritual growth.
Truth is, the SUN is not closest to the Earth in Summer but in early January, however the CANCER SUN is so bright and strong and it’s early Summer in the Northern hemisphere.

Because the energies of the SUN and of the MOON in reflection are both at their peak, our subtle energy channels are unusually open and receptive to absorb spiritual energy. Practices done or begun these day will bring growth and auspiciousness in life.

Through sadhana (spiritual practice) and by following the Guru’s teachings, devotees can purify the mind to reflect the Atman / Universal Self, just as the MOON reflects the brightness of the SUN.

Traditionally, Guru Purnima is an auspicious time to begin four months of spiritual practice. Beginning at this time allows us to make great spiritual progress more quickly.”

 

Never too early, never too late, for spiritual practice, and connection with the inner Guru / Teacher / Mentor / Light Bringer, I’d say.

Time (ruled by CAP) in fact can be suspended, stretched, and can dissolve and ‘disappear’ in immersion with what IS  (PLUTO points us to ‘that’).
The Guru is a bridge into vastness, spaciousness, and freedom.

 

In Astrology, the ‘Guru’ is associated with the Archetypes of JUPITER, the Mentor, and SATURN, the Teacher.

Presently, JUPITER is retro and in its own SAG domain (until Dec 3, 2019), this year in triple square with mystical NEPTUNE in its own PISCEAN domain.

Gifts and happiness (JUPITER in SAG) require surrender and letting go, which leads to Unity (NEPTUNE in PI).
Once we SEE the benefits (JUPITER in SAG) deep gratitude and an abundant life are the results.

SATURN, this year in mid-CAP, quintessential integrity teacher, is also very supportive at this Guru Puja time, since it forms two relationships with transpersonal Archetypes:

  • A triple sextile this year with NEPTUNE in PISCES – the teaching and on-going practice is surrender and connection.
    Flow and ease in the ‘achievement’ follow.
  • An almost-exact conjunction with PLUTO (strongest in May / June 2019, and exact conjunct on Jan 12, 2020.
    As we’re called / pressured to complete and be done with what’s old and doesn’t serve Humanity, Planet Earth, and all Beings, esp. abusive, disrespectful top-down control and power, we’re also called to Build the New from the inside-out – a caring and compassionate world, based on Love – the ‘top priority’ that IS.

Pluto Reveals… One of the first pictures New Horizons transmitted from the close fly-by in July 2015

Have I mentioned?
Almost all the planetary Archetypes mentioned are presently retro:

MERCURY, JUPITER, SATURN, CHIRON, URANUS (going retro on Aug 11), and PLUTO!
Excellent for inward-turning movement….

Under PLUTO in SATURN ruled CAP (2008 – 2023), and NEPTUNE in PISCES (since 2011 / 2012, until 2018 / 2026), so many traditional spiritual teachings and practices from our biological and Spirit ancestry have reached our modern cultures and become ‘mainstream’.
The ‘trick’ is to really be consistent and apply them into our daily and most challenging situations – says SATURN in CAP.

Different accesses and avenues for everyone, yet light is always light.

 

Aummmm! Namaste!

The Light in me honours the Light in you!
May we ground and embody it.

From the Galactic Centre to the WINTER SOLSTICE 2018: Light Returning…

16 Dec

Solsticey Greetings, Cosmic Friend!

 

 

These days, Dec 17 – 19, is the yearly time when (in the Northern Hemisphere) the SUN in late SAG points to the Heart of our Milky Way Galaxy – the Galactic Centre, a dark rift, ‘black hole’, AND a birthing place out of stillness, honoured by indigenous cultures as the Womb of Creation.

All of us with birthdays these days, or AC, MOON, or Planets in our birth chart at 26 – 28° SAG, are strongly called to align from our loving Heart, with the Heart of Hearts, to follow ultimate Truth, inner Guidance, and trust the inner Soul Light on our Path.

 

Star Cluster in the Galactic Centre (NASA) – Heart of our Milky Way, at the end of SAG where from Earth perspective the SUN travels just before the WINTER SOLSTICE Point!

On the Winter Solstice intersection of SAG / CAP, we’re also at the Space-Time cross(roads):
SAG rules Space, and CAP rules Time.

What does it take, to show up simply and ‘magically’ at the right Time at the right Place? To ‘attract synchronicities’?

We increase the odds when we’re in resonance with the Universe, i.o.w., when we follow inner Heart Guidance, the inner teacher who is connected to the bigger sphere, or even ‘simpler’: When we’re in egoless alignment with Integrity as-Nature, and move with LOVE.


The
 Winter SoUlstice Point is the Space-Time Point, Integrity Point, or Inner Guru Point – here we can find the Teacher and Guiding Light within. 

SATURN, the ‘obstacle bringer’ who teaches us via ‘what’s in the way’ (hint: old patterns and conditioning, fears and limitations, ego contraction, sense of separateness, and need for control) and where we need to drop the excess ‘baggage’ of these heavy duty engagements, was 2015 – 2017 in SAG, and crossed just before last Winter Solstice 2017 over the Space-Time Point into CAP (which SATURN rules), and where it reminds us of what’s real and has priority, and shows us through clear feedback what works and what doesn’t (esp. long term).

Reflections for SATURN now on the CAP side of the Winter Solstice Point:

  • Where / how can you find the Sage / Elder in you? 
  • What’s your experience of the Ground of Being?
  • When all is still and dark, what is undying?
  • How does the Inner Light return for you?
  • Living by ancient, timeless teachings can be very beneficial – always, esp. in times like these.

 

Ganesha – Elephant headed Hindu god, known as the ‘Remover of Obstacles’ on the path, and Guru that takes us from the darkness (of not seeing what the obstacles is / was) to the Light. 

 

This year, JUPITER is in SAG. It will come close to the Galactic Ctre when it stations at 24°21′ SAG on Apr 10 to go retro from there, and will cross the GC in Nov 2019 before entering CAP on Dec 2, 2019.
A whole different energy with JUPITER round the GC than with SATURN in the last years:
Rather than dealing with / buying into and needing to unburden ourselves from old beliefs and stories that are obstacles and cause separation, with JUPITER in SAG, Deep Understanding, Trust, Heart Truth guiding our Path, the Freedom to live by it, and OpportUnities arise.

 

Blessings for the Galactic RE-Birthday to all of us NOW!

The energy to align with essential deep Truth (the ultimate Gift that comes ‘down the chimney’) so that we can actually WALK the Vision, and BE the Truth, the Light, the Love!

 

The SUN will reach the sacred SAG-to-CAP transition, at WINTER SOLSTICE 2017 – this year on Dec 21 at 2:25 pm PST.

Here is the Winter Solstice ‘Birth Chart’:

 

What’s so special about the WINTER SOLSTICE 2018:
It leads up to a FULL MOON  at the very first degree of CANCER (CAP for the SUN), just 19 hrs later, on Dec 22!

At WINTER SOLSTICE, the waxing MOON will be still in GEM, and the Solstice night will be an almost-Full MOON night (when the lunar energy is even stronger than the day after).
A polarity between the need to belong to a tribe or family, be with children / with the Inner Child, and to focus on priorities and purpose, which may be but doesn’t have to be a dilemma, ‘bridged’ by MARS / CHIRON between them (a square):
SoUlutions come from doing actively something about unity and connection, and surrendering to the healing quality of it. When we connect from the Heart it all comes and flows together, time flies or stands still – either way, it’s magical.

 

Also on the day of the WINTER SOLSTICE:
MERCURY in SAG (coming out of post-retro ‘shadow’) unites with JUPITER, and gears up to a square with NEPTUNE in PI on Christmas Eve, Dec 24.
This alignment is also quite relevant for the U.S., with MERCURY / JUPITER just 3° away from the country’s AC at 12°12′ SAG. 

More opportunity to find and speak our Heart Truth, be authentic, have fun, celebrate, see the bigger picture and the gifts of Life, and share generously.
With the NEPTUNE square, a romantic, dreamy, mystical and musical vibe at Christmas. It can be also prone to fantasies, illusions, and disappointments when expectations (SAG) aren’t met.
So take it easy, tune into wonder, and sound and song that unites.

 

Lastly, on the WINTER SOLSTICE day and the day after:
On Dec 21, VENUS in SCO goes into Water Trine with NEPTUNE in PI – Surfing the Waves of Love…
Then on Dec 22, VENUS in mid-SCO (doubly-SCO energy there) will square LILITH in mid-AQ (doubly-AQ there).
Intimacy and Depth of Love and Connection vs / and? Freedom and Independence?

 


Celtic Wheel of the Year, with the cardinal Turning Points of the Equinoxes and Solstices, incl. YULE – Winter Solstice

Let’s link up with the deep cosmic energy at this time of year!

And honour ancient traditions – in our Time and Place.

 

Speaking of Space-Time:

Space as we knew it has changed massively and irreversibly (Internet, globalization, worldwide travel boom etc.), during the period when PLUTO was in SAG (1995 – 2008). 

Time as we know it is changing now, with PLUTO in CAP (2008 – 2023).
Time is VERY relative, in fact it’s just a dimension that can be also molded, and transcended:
We energetically ‘run out of it’ when we race around in scarcity mode, and, with consumer mentality (ha, esp. before Christmas…), want more of what we don’t seem to ‘have’. Like a ‘hungry ghost’. The shadow of CAP (never satisfied materialist). 

In contrast, we ‘have all the time in the world’ when we slow down, and tune into ‘Kairos’ (time-as-quality) rather than ‘Chronos’ (time-as-quantity).

When we tap into ‘Deep Time’, and tune into Heart Time…
One of the best gifts we can give others, to ourselves, and to the World.
A theme that’s up now big time 🙂 and to REflect upon, with MERCURY& JUPITER in SAG, and SATURN in CAP!

ASTRO CONSULTATIONS:

Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to Your ‘Inner Cosmic Compass’.

I’d love to inspire you to be in alignment with, and smoothly ‘ride’, those ‘auspicious’ or ‘challenging’ waves of cosmic energies that present themselves at a given time, and, similar to climate and weather, affect our human energy field.

Why?
Because it leads to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel connected with the bigger evolution.
Ultimately, you can dwell in a witnessing place in the ‘Hub of the Wheel’ where you are less and less affected, more and more liberated, and self-realized.

The birth chart is an incarnational map to identify your ‘original imprint’and themes that are showing up as ‘issues’ in your life.
I help you see how you don’t need to be unconsciously identified with them, and they don’t have to run your life.

I’m always happy to welcome you as a client who is not seeking a ‘reading’ from me (“What’s going to happen TO me?”, “What am I supposed to do?”), but to be supported in accessing your own wisdom source, especially in times of a challenging transitions, stuckness, transformational crisis, or for perspective at a crossroad, dilemma, or empowered choices.

This is to empowered and liberating ways of working with the ancient and timeless gift of Astrology!

 

Come over to TREAT TIME Offers in December, to treat yourself or a Loved One to an Astro Session for the Holidays, esp. for an Outlook into the New Year!

 

 

ASTRO~EXPERIENCES

From the Galactic Centre to the WINTER SOLSTICE 2017: Light Returning…

18 Dec

Solsticey Greetings, Cosmic Friend!

 

These days, Dec 17 – 19, is the yearly time when (in the Northern Hemisphere) the SUN in late SAG points to the Heart of our Milky Way Galaxy – the Galactic Centre, a dark rift, ‘black hole’, AND a birthing place out of stillness, energetically honoured by indigenous cultures as the Womb of Creation.

All of us with our birthday these days, or other planets in our birth chart at 26 – 28° SAG, are strongly called to align from our loving Heart, with the Heart of Hearts, to follow ultimate Truth, inner Guidance, and trust the inner Soul Light on our Path.

 

Star Cluster in the Galactic Centre (NASA) – Heart of our Milky Way, at the end of SAG where from Earth perspective the SUN travels just before the WINTER SOLSTICE Point – this year also SATURN!

On the Winter Solstice intersection of SAG / CAP, we are also at the Space-Time cross(roads). (SAG rules Space, and CAP rules Time).

Showing up at the right place at the right time matters, and meets the mark…

What does it take, to show up simply and ‘magically’ at the right Time at the right Place? To ‘attract synchronicities’?

We increase the odds, as it seems, when we are in resonance with the Universe, in other words: when we follow inner Guidance, the inner teacher that is connected to the bigger sphere, or even ‘simpler’: when we are in egoless alignment with Integrity as-Nature, and move with LOVE.


The
 Winter SoUlstice Point is also the Space-Time Point, Integrity Point, or Inner Guru Point – where we can find the Teacher and Guiding Light within. 

SATURN, the ‘obstacle bringer’ that teaches us via ‘what’s in the way’ (hint: old patterns and conditionings, fears and limitations, ego contraction, sense of separateness, and need for control) to drop that excess ‘baggage’ of these heavy duty engagements, is this Solstice also crossing over the Space-Time / SAG-CAP Point – on Dec 19 / 20.
See fresh Astro~News blog post for SATURN in CAPRICORN.

  • Where is the Inner Sage that shows the way, and whom we can trust? 
  • What is the Ground of all Being?
  • When all is still and dark, what is undying?
  • Living by ancient, timeless teachings can be very beneficial – always, esp. in times like these.

 

Ganesha – Elephant headed Hindu god, known as the ‘Remover of Obstacles’ on the path, and Guru that takes us from the darkness (of not seeing what the obstacles is / was) to the Light.

 

 

 

Blessings for the Galactic RE-Birthday to all of us NOW!

The energy to align with essential deep Truth (the ultimate Gift that comes ‘down the chimney’) so that we can actually WALK the Vision, and BE the Truth, the Light, the Love!

 

‘After’ the Galactic Centre New Moon (Dec 17 / 18), see blog post,  the SUN will reach the sacred SAG-to-CAP transition, at WINTER SOLSTICE 2017 – this year on Dec 21 at 8:30 am PST.

 

Voila – here is the Winter Solstice Chart:

What a potent cosmic Winter SoUlstice Sunrise energy!
Here on the West Coast, it’ll happen just after sunrise, with CAP Rising, and with CAP SUN / SATURN on the Solstice Point united (exact alignment  4 1/2 hrs later, at 1:08 pm PST!!!).
LILITH in CAP is exactly on the horizon, and PLUTO is in the 1st house, coming up on the horizon within an hour after Solstice sunrise.

  • How can visions and ideals (SAG) be brought into reality (CAP)?
  • What’s the Soul Force (PLUTO) that drives your ‘purpose’?
  • What does it always ‘come down to’, have us get up in the morning and ‘do the work’?
  • What’s intrinsically rewarding?

 


Celtic Wheel of the Year, with the cardinal Turning Points of the Equinoxes and Solstices, incl. YULE – Winter Solstice, and the fixed ‘Gates of Power’.

Let’s link up with that potent energy that’s available, at this time of year.

And honour ancient traditions – in our Time and Place.

Speaking of Space-Time:
Space as we knew it changed massively and  irreversibly (Internet, globalization, worldwide travel boom etc.), during the period when PLUTO was in SAG (1995 – 2008).

In contrast, we ‘have all the time in the world’ when we slow down, and tune into ‘Kairos’ (time-as-quality) rather than ‘Chronos’ (time-as-quantity).

When we tap into ‘Deep Time’, and tune into Heart Time… One of the best gifts we can give others, to ourselves, and to the World.
A theme that’s up now big time 🙂 and to REflect upon, under MERCURY retro (Dec 2 – 22, now into retro-to-direct ‘storm’)!

* Guru Purnima / Guru Puja Full Moon Blessings – with the Astro ‘Gurus’ Jupiter & Saturn!

20 Jul

… There is more to the CAP – CAN Full Moon that was exact yesterday!

In Hindu and Buddhist tradition the Full Moon in July is the Guru Purnima / Guru Puja, dedicated to the inner and outer Guru.

 

Ganesha

Ganesha – Elephant headed Hindu god, known to be the ‘Remover of Obstacles’ on the path, and Guru that takes us from the darkness (of not seeing what the obstacles is / was) to the Light.

 

Ganesh is being invoked at the onset of a journey.

We could all use some Ganesh energy nowadays, with SATURN in SAG (Sept 2015 – Winter Solstice 2017) where challenges for ‘the journey’, the trust, the path arise – only to teach us what our inner blocks and old beliefs are…

 

Aummmm! Namaste!

The light in me honours the light in you!

 OM_concentric

 

“Ohhh, I don’t have a Guru, nor do I want one!” is what one might hear from us Westerners…

GU-RU means ‘simply’ “From Darkness to Light” – one who removes darkness and brings light. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guru_Purnima

 

“Guru Purnima is celebrated on the day of the year when the Sun is closest to the Earth and the Full Moon reflects the brightest light. It is a holy day, and an especially beneficial time to make fresh resolves for spiritual growth.

Because the energies of the Sun and Moon are both at their peak, our subtle energy channels are unusually open and receptive to absorb spiritual energy. Practices done or begun on this day will bring growth and auspiciousness in the life of the disciple.

Through sadhana (spiritual practice) and by following the Guru’s teachings, devotees can purify the mind to reflect the Atman, just as the Moon reflects the brightness of the Sun.

Traditionally, Guru Purnima is an auspicious time to begin four months of spiritual practice. Beginning at this time allows us to make great spiritual progress more quickly.”

 

Never too early, never too late, for spiritual practice, and connection with the inner guru / teacher / mentor / light bringer, I’d say.

Time in fact can be suspended, stretched, and can dissolve and ‘disappear’ in immersion with what IS. The guru is a bridge into vastness, spaciousness, and freedom.

 

In Astrology, the ‘Guru’ is associated with the Archetypes of JUPITER, the mentor, and SATURN, the teacher.

 

Jupiter & Earth

Jupiter and Earth – Hubble Space Telescope picture (NASA)

 

Presently, JUPITER is in mid / late VIRGO, not far from the Lunar North Node – so (rather than fretting over problems and going into excessive ‘doing mode’ – maybe out of over compensation for not ‘being enough / perfect ’ – see above description by the Tower…).

Spiritual Practice IS perfect, and very beneficial.

 

JUPITER will even go opposite CHIRON in PI on Aug 12.

May the Medicine and Harvest of our Practice ‘come together’ as we are connected, and open to receive!

 

 

Saturn & Earth

Saturn and Earth – Hubble Space Telescope picture (NASA)

 

SATURN is also very potent at this Guru Puja time, since it is now almost stationary (during August), and will go from retro (since March 25) to direct on Aug 13.

As we step out of the ‘path’ of limiting Karma and ‘Obstacles’, we SEE more clearly, and move forward with transformed understanding and strength.

 

Under PLUTO in SATURN ruled CAP (2008 – 2023), and NEPTUNE & CHIRON in PISCES (since 2011 / 2012, until 2018 / 2026) so many traditional spiritual teachings and practices (esp. Yoga and meditation) have massively reached the Western, modern cultures and become ‘mainstream’.

Different accesses and avenues for everyone, yet light is always light.

* JUPITER – SATURN Square, Vol. II on March 23: Perspective…

23 Mar

Today, on the day of the Lunar Eclipse, we also experience the 2nd of 3 exact squares from JUPITER in VIR to SATURN in SAG.

# 1 happened in August last year (while JU was still in LEO, and SATURN in SCO).

# 3 will be exact on May 26, not far from the positions of SATURN and JUPITER now.

 

On a personal-spiritual level, we can check in where we create obstacles (SATURN) through the way how we SEE (SAG) through our lens of perception, have tunnel vision, or don’t even see the obvious, and therefore judge things or people, and how limiting beliefs hold us back. Acknowledgment of the obstacle is the first step (which can be tricky, since we are dealing with blind spots here – that’s why a ‘mirror’ through a trusted friend, counsel, astrologer, elder helps.
Maybe this belief has served the side in you that you are outgrowing now. An old skin. It’s growth pain to see the Truth, and do something about it. But, as typically with SATURN, it will be unburdening (I know, the ego doesn’t believe this but resistance is eventually futile anyway).

You say: I got it, re: SATURN challenge. Where’s the opportunity?

Here you go: With JUPITER in VIR, doing one’s daily practice of wellness and wholeness, and being of help for others is supportive, and brings more opportunities for growth. We’re talking VIRGO, and even though it might seem like ‘that’s the small stuff’, it adds up. Just don’t sweat it, rather sweat at your jogging or Yoga practice….

 

Ganesha

Ganesha – Elephant headed Hindu god, known as the ‘Remover of Obstacles’ on the Path.

 

Ganesha, the Hindu deity known as the ‘Remover of Obstacles’ comes to mind. Of course, Ganesha doesn’t just magically take the obstacles away but represents the guru, the spiritual teacher that shows what the real obstacle is, and what it takes to go beyond. So yeah, anytime a good time to invoke Ganesha, esp. at the beginning of a journey, and in times like this.

 

Let’s look into the societal arena as well:

This is the ‘closing square’ in the 20-year JUPITER – SATURN cycle that started in May 2000, with their conjunction in TAURUS.

A new socio-economic-political-cultural cycle with Taurean themes started then. Conservative governments became more prominent in the world. Money and business as well as ‘territorialism’ (and domains) became a big deal.

2010 was the opposition, with JUPITER in late PI, and SATURN in late VIR (where the Nodal axis is now!), showing us we need to cut back and be in integrity, act eco-logical, and do business in integrity (SATURN in VIR), since all is connected (JUPITER in PI). One example: Doing business online and be connected via media (PI) became very popular – very practical and promised lower impact on the environment (SATURN in VIR). Not so sure what the world community learned since then around being humble and content with less (SATURN in VIR).

 

So this square between the ‘main players’, JUPITER in VIR (Aug 2015 – Sept 2016), and SATURN in SAG (Sept 2015 – Winter Solstice 2017) brings a crisis (square) and challenge (SATURN) that is also an opportunity (JUPITER) to act upon (a square has a MARS undertone). NEPTUNE in PI is also involved in the dynamic.

 

A continuous PISCEAN wave of refugees coming to Europe, escaping from their war torn countries, esp. Syria, has caused a mass migration that has brought up a big spectrum of responses: As much as countries like Germany initially welcomed large numbers of refugees with open arms and compassion, the whole process also brought up paranoia, fear of being uncontrollably invaded by unknown and unchecked, and perceived as possibly dangerous foreigners (SATURN in SAG square NEPTUNE in PI).

JUPITER in VIR may say: SO much to do, as in: So many opportunities to help, or: How can all these problems be managed? Or: So many tools are now available. Depending on the perspective.

 

The socio-political tension already emerged in the heated pre-election Summer 2015 for Canada, while JUPITER, then still in LEO, squared SATURN in late SCO last August – and brought about new, ‘sunnier ways’ via the Liberal Govt. and ever charismatic (LEO like) Justin Trudeau – work ahead nevertheless (JUPITER now in VIR, and promises need to be kept, SATURN in SAG).

Clearly, the socio-political conflict shows up big time in the U.S. this year, with rather aggressive tones.“Where is it going???” (and perhaps even: ”Where am I going, if… gets elected?”) – SATURN in SAG, and “We could have a big problem here.”, is what many U.S. citizens and the world community is wondering, with concern (JUPITER in VIR).

Remember, the U.S. have also SATURN on their AC in mid-SAG this year – a new 29-year cycle starts (after the shadow and ‘rien ne va plus’ are faced).

Rather than ‘big words’ and promises, or righteousness – the shadow of SAG (do I hear: “Make America great again….”?), SATURN moderates and restrains SAG, and shows consequences if the path is not in alignment with the Heart and true Sagittarian wisdom and perspective.

Interesting, that D. Trump was born with MOON / South Node in SAG, see:
http://www.astro.com/astro-databank/Trump,_Donald

B. Sanders with North Node / SUN in VIR (plus, he has URANUS on his MOON / MARS in ARIES now, calling for a Revolution of Consciousness in the States), see (birth time unknown): http://www.astro.com/astro-databank/Sanders,_Bernie

 

So things are definitely heated up now, and end of May is another phase of this tension that could set the course for the next years to come.

PISCES says: Yes, everyone can be affected by everything, since all is connected. Which also means: What we feed into the ‘field’ can have a domino effect as well.

Might as well Spread the Love!
