Dancing with the Light

Dancing with the LightThe Full Moon is a powerful time of the month. Let examine just why it’s so powerful. To begin this discussion, let’s back up a bit and review what the New Moon energies hold. The New Moon is a cosmic initiator. It always begins a new process, or a new idea, or a new cosmic gift or ability. The entire first half of the Lunation cycle, from two weeks ago up to this week’s Full Moon, is a learning process. It’s about overcoming personal obstacles and challenges, making decisions, and taking actions to stay on your new learning path. This allows you to renew your commitment to the new ideas you embraced at the New Moon, and prepares you to “actually do something” with what you have learned. This “doing something” is what the Full Moon is all about.

The Source of Full Moon Power

Full Moon Chart Dec 28The energy of the Full Moon empowers you to take the understanding of what you have learned and apply it in your life in some meaningful or practical way. The Full Moon supports your “creative activity.” (since I moved “doing something” to the earlier paragraph, maybe just say creative action here?) This is why astrology teachings often say the Full Moon is about completion and fullness. This isn’t because you have ended a cycle, but because you have completed the initial learning curve. It means that through your learning you should now understand enough to engage in new activity while you use what you have learned.

At the last New Moon we were all supported in a rebirth of feeling and emotions, preparing us for the Cosmic birth of Light at Winter Solstice. At the Winter Solstice we entered into a new era of fulfilment. This new era will be marked with an increase in the power and quality of Light available to all. In other words, the quality of cosmic Light available to us now is more expansive and contains a higher vibration. It’s more penetrating and it brings with it a Uranian quality able to transform consciousness. Human consciousness is able to hold the new frequencies more effectively as Capricorn structures learn to hold this new quality of Light. This is the meaning of the “new” Capricorn that I wrote about in last week’s Solstice article.

The New Capricorn

The New Capricorn of the ZodiacThe aspect of the earth element resonating with the new Capricorn is that of the crystal family and all crystalline structures. The astrological symbolism and alignment of the three transcendent Planets (Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto) combined with the Winter Solstice, and the holistic alignment with all the other planets, suggest that consciousness itself is now able to form into crystalline grids capable of holding and using this Cosmic Light in new ways. The energy activated by the planet Uranus is able to work with Capricorn energies similarly to the way we use crystal energies. What is new with this Full Moon is the power to “do something” with your new access to this Cosmic Light.

Integrating the Light

The December New Moon initiated the new process of rebirth. As we began to learn how to live, feel, and react in new ways, the Winter Solstice gave birth to a new form of Cosmic Light. With this gift of Light we can feel inspired, encouraged, and renewed.

The days preceding the Full Moon, are more likely filled with questions. For some the question is, “Am I ready? Can I handle this?” For others, the question is, “Is this even real, what does all of this really mean, do I really feel that different? Why do I still feel overwhelmed by old patterns?”

These questions are a part of the natural process of integration. For without these questions, we don’t know where to make adjustments, or where to look for hidden strength and power just beginning to develop. You need to use your mind to make the new growth creative and joyous. Having a supportive thought process and logical mental structures provides the depth of integration necessary for new forms to completely emerge.

The Perfect Dance

This Full Moon is a time for dancing. When someone dances to music, they feel the music and respond from a place of physical creativity. During the week following the Full Moon, it is important to “do something” as a result of what you have learned, felt, and experienced. This isn’t a time to sit next to the dance floor and watch everybody else dance. You must exercise what you have integrated so far. You must use it, at whatever level you feel it.

Feel that you have access now to a higher quality of Light, and then move, act, do something which reflects this new Capricorn Light. The Full Moon is about completion, but it is the completion of a very small step in a new direction. It means you have completed just enough, and learned just enough, that you can now engage in activity which reflects your growth and understanding.

The astrological alignments this week suggest that the most appropriate dance is the dance of appreciation. This timing is perfect for expressing your joy and celebrating the new subtly of Cosmic Light in your life. Your focus is best spent on the future, and your appreciation for what the future has to offer the world. You have a new role to play, in a new world which is birthing. It’s not necessary to have it all figured out. We are all learning how to hold more Light. We’re learning how to work together in an exciting new world, and how to dance the new dance of Light.

Feel the Light and react with your own form of creative response. This week is the week to practice your new understanding of a new era of fulfillment. Your opportunity is to feel your creative response of life and Light. Celebrate with joy. This is your perfect dance.

The Magic of Winter Solstice of 2012

A Magical Solstice

I find it most fascinating that buried in the collective consciousness of the average person is the idea of the “end of the world.” This is somewhat accurate from an esoteric point of view. Allow me to explain this idea further.

This year’s Winter Solstice is occurring during a powerful and magical Uranus activation. This, coupled with the Sun conjunct Pluto, points to a cosmic situation leading to the end of current structures of power. This is the power that currently holds control through sanctioned organizations and existing power structures. By power, I mean the ability to establish, organize, and to initiate that which controls and brings to order. Power also refers to the energy to act and to accomplish new activity.

This year the Solstice is about the death of one great power, and the birth of a new great power, emerging for the first time. This is the power to create something meaningful and new, in closer alignment with Cosmic harmony.

Winter Solstice Chart Dec 20, 2012
Winter Solstice Dec 20

The Winter Solstice always represents a form of death. In this country, our preoccupation with death limits our understanding of what it means to end a cycle. With our Sun in a balsamic conjunction with Pluto on this year’s Winter Solstice (right before the exact conjunction), the ending of our current cycle is certain. Cosmic death is occurring in the most powerful and auspicious way possible. I am thankful that in our culture we have another symbol to help us understand what is occurring. That symbol is the birth of the Christ consciousness, which occurs every year in this season.

It’s important to realize that on the Winter Solstice both death and birth are happening simultaneously. As the death of one cycle occurs, the birth of another cycle begins. Life is eternal, with the promise that when one phase of life ends, a new phase of life begins. This is precisely what is occurring during the Solstice.

A Deeper Look into the Birth of Light

Uranus Moon Light

To fully understand the magic that is occurring on the Solstice, I would like to take a deeper look into the nature of light.

You and I live in a world where the balance of light is constantly shifting. In June, at the time of Summer Solstice, when the days are the longest, light predominates and the day-force is the strongest of the year. At the same time, the night-force is also the weakest. This is when a bit of cosmic magic occurs. At the moment of Summer Solstice, the night-force is awakened out of its slumber and it begins to build in strength. Over the following weeks and months, the night-force builds and builds until the time of Winter Solstice, when it is the strongest of the year.

Magically, on the Winter Solstice, the death of the night-force is foretold with the birth of the light. From Winter Solstice on, the awakened day-force will continue to build in strength, until the next Summer Solstice arrives.

Each year at Winter Solstice the Light re-awakens. And each year, a new quality of Light is born. This is the birth of the Christ consciousness. This is the light which will Light the world and guide our way. Winter Solstice each year brings the sacred birth of a new quality of illumination to Earth. We celebrate it, we rejoice, and we hold sacred this magic of Light. It is this yearly birth of Light which gives us hope and inspiration. We sense the glory which is to come when this Light comes into its full power of strength and illumination.

Feeling the Solstice Shift

Capricorn Light changes frequency on Dec 21, 2012The Winter Solstice, by its very nature, is perhaps to most powerful shifting point which occurs on a yearly basis. This year’s shift is amplified by an additional Moon-Uranus activation which is happening simultaneously with the Solstice.

The Moon represents your daily experience and adjustment to life. It’s a focal point of Cosmic integration of the changing flow of spiritual energies available to you. The Moon also gives you the ability to feel this amazing cosmic shift.

Every month the Moon experiences two activations. One is at New Moon, when it contacts the Sun and activates a new way to fulfill your purpose and potential. The other is when it contacts Uranus and activates your galactic purpose from beyond the solar system. Significantly, this year the Winter Solstice is occurring on this second of these two activations. The new phase conjunction (right after the exact conjunction) of the Moon and Uranus is the marker of a new era of time and progress.

On the Solstice you may have the feeling that something is different. It is important that you feel this on an emotional level. Without the ability to feel the shift, you may struggle with how to react. Astrologically, we are in a period of emotional rebirth, following the special activation which occurred at last month’s Full Moon. This rebirth is supporting a fundamental shift in our nature, to act and react consciously from a new emotional center. From the perspective of your new emotional center, you can feel that the past has served its role and it’s time to move on to bigger and better ways of living and being in harmony with the universe.

When you look outside on the Solstice, the Light you see and feel, the Light inspiring your actions and decisions, is not the same light as it was yesterday. This is the Light of a new era of fulfillment.

A New Era of Fulfillment

We are entering the era that we have dreamed of. A time to bring our visions to form. What was previously only an idea, what could only be dreamed of in the past, is now crystallizing. Our visions are becoming possible because of a new form of power.

The inspiration of the night-force will be fulfilled when a spiritual community of awakened people is able use the birth of Cosmic hope and Light to energize and start using this Light as a real and useful form of power. In the new era we will have the Power to “do,” and not just to dream. We will have the Power to act in the Light, not just talk about a world in the future. This new power becomes the force we will use to build the new world which was previously only a vision. The New Era of Fulfillment is arriving through the use of the power of Light, in action.

The Birth of a New Capricorn

The New Capricorn of the ZodiacEach year, on the Winter Solstice, the Sun moves into the Zodiac sign of Capricorn. Capricorn energies are those energies in which the earth, or anything with form, can hold and wield actual power. This year, with the help of Uranus, the birth of a new quality of Cosmic Light will begin to flow and energize through Capricorn, This is the birth of “The New Capricorn.”

In the past, the ability to claim, use, and embody power as an individual or a group has been directed by Capricorn in tandem with the planet Saturn. Saturn, ruler of form, structure, building, and laws has traditionally been considered the ruler of Capricorn, but that is about to change.

Some have predicted that the Earth’s poles will reverse on the Winter Solstice. This isn’t what is happening literally, but there is an important reversal in the flow of Cosmic energies. In the past, Cosmic energy tended to flow primarily outward, from Jupiter through Saturn and Uranus and the remaining outer planets, to the Galaxy.

Capricorn is an Earth sign. The New Capricorn embodies the transcendent quality of “Earth.” This can be seen in a crystal, which is the new symbol of the earth element of Capricorn. With this shift to the new era, Cosmic energy flows in two directions, like a crystal in which energy can flow in both directions at the same time. Cosmic flow now moves two ways, from galactic center to you, and also from you out to the Universe.

Because Capricorn energy can now flow in two directions, there will be a split in the world. Some will be able to move in both directions, others will be stuck in old forms. Those who struggle to feel the shift will declare, “The world didn’t end, nothing has changed, let’s continue along our previous path.” Saturn will be their ruler of power and power structures.

For others, who have cultivated subtleness and a new awareness, those who can feel more than the retail shopping spirit as an indicator of fulfillment, Uranus will be their new guide into a new understanding and expression of fulfillment.

Inspiration for Moving Forward

Uranus Symbol for the Planet

Uranus has the ability to show us what is beyond and just out of reach, guiding with a vision of the correct use of power. Uranus as the new ruler of Capricorn will show us the way to transform our world into the paradise we once only dreamed of. The use of power for the sake of power, and as a measure of success and control, will start to fade as the new ruler of Capricorn shifts the consciousness of more and more individuals.

As we enter the New Era of Fulfillment, we now have the ability to hold the inspiration of our spiritual ideals, and also build realities from them. The new Capricorn is about seizing power from those who abuse it and reclaiming it for the harmony of all. It’s is about being responsible for what we envision and then making the decisions and taking the actions which support it. Group responsibility and support will be especially powerful as we move forward.

Let us each feel this shift as deeply as possible. It’s a time for celebration and joy, a time for us to anchor the birth of this new Light.

Twelve-Twelve Esoteric Perspective

12:12 on 12/12/12

Written by Steven Shroyer

The astrology of 12-12-12 features the planet Jupiter in a prominent way. 

Depending on your point of view, either all energies are flowing through Jupiter, or Jupiter is distributing all energies to the other planets. Either way, on 12-12 Jupiter is retrograde at 10 Gemini, which is very important and significant. This is the degree of the Zodiac which is often referred to as “mind verses matter,” so the location is bringing a unique capacity to Jupiter’s expansive nature. (The effects of retrograde are complex and integrated into the totality of this article.)

Jupiter Expands Consciousness on 12 12 12

With the expansive nature of Jupiter so prominent, what’s keeping our circumstances from flying out of control? Gravitation is the universal binding power of the material realm. From the time we are born, we all have to learn to struggle and come to terms with the force of gravity. I remember learning how to ride a bicycle. At first, keeping my balance and keeping the direction of my bicycle on course felt so over-whelming — it was almost impossible. My sustained effort, through repeated failure, paid off and it became easier and easier. Before long, all I had to do was think “ride” and gravity became my best friend as I leaned through the curves and coasted down the hills.

Our struggle with gravity isn’t only physical. Your struggle against gravity also teaches you how to pierce beyond the physical realm in order to reach higher realms of existence and access other realms of consciousness. These realms are beyond the physical. They are transcendent in nature.

The deeper meaning of gravity is embodied in the lesson of how your mind has the ability to rise above the density of lower vibrations. As consciousness expands beyond the 3-D realms, it requires mental effort to transcend the apparent limits of physicality. With the New Moon occurring on the day following 12-12-12, the capacity for expanding your consciousness is becoming more evident.

Twelve Twelve Chart
Twelve Twelve Chart

Uranus is supporting you with a personal vision of what is possible, but indicates that half-measures, or anything less than a full commitment, will result in failure. Gravity is unforgiving. As you climb upward against gravity, success or failure are the clear-cut alternatives. The requirement of total commitment is clear. Expansion will occur for those who have learned the deeper lessons of physicality (gravitational force).

The 12-12-12 astrology chart is suggesting a possible spilt in how humanity will respond to the energies leading up the very important Winter Solstice. Those who embrace the lessons of gravity and expanded embodiment will rise to a higher realm of being. This requires intention and focused mental awareness. Others, who haven’t learned that it is possible to pierce beyond the limitation of matter and the physical plane, will continue to vibrate with the densities of isolation in the material world.

The shift of Solstice 2012 is beginning to come into form. There is a real opportunity now for you to experience a more transcendent and metaphysical world. This twelve-twelve theme of expansion is also an underlying theme of the New Moon on Dec13.

Acceleration of Solstice Power

New Moon Dec 13, 2012 – 0:24am PST

(Sun conjunct the Moon, an important monthly activation)

This is one of the most exciting New Moons of the entire year. To put the importance of this week’s events in perspective, let’s review some of the more significant factors involved.

Two weeks ago during the Lunar Eclipse, a cosmic portal opened which is allowing deep new emotional connections to the Earth’s life-force. Along with it is the potential for you to experience an emotionally significant feeling of rebirth. This rebirth has the potential of producing a great deal of freedom in how you choose to identify with your past. It also provides you a skill-set for emotionally dealing with the large shift which will occur on the Winter Solstice, just a week away.

The New Moon occurs one day after the famed 12-12-12, and one week before the powerful Winter Solstice on the 21st of December.

A Short, Clear Perspective

New Moon Chart Dec 13, 2012
New Moon Chart

To summarize, let’s just say that this week’s New Moon is part of an important sequence of transformational events which started at last month’s New Moon, and will continue through next month’s New Moon, as we anchor and integrate the cosmic shifts of the 2012 Solstice. As this week’s New Moon supports the larger wave of transformation, its main function is to accelerate the process so that our consciousness can more easily make the transition next week. It will also help us to identify with the expansion process so that we can feel connected at the deepest level.

Overall, it’s supporting our ability to integrate and assimilate the infusion of light that will arrive with the Solstice.

On the most basic level, your New Moon intentions this week can focus on accepting and allowing the integration and expansion process to continue. Avoid fear reactions around your own experiences of acceleration. Everything has been perfectly timed to prepare you for this moment. The more you can fully embrace your circumstances as they unfold this week, the more fully you can participate in the final preparations for the infusion of light.

The rest of this article offers more detail about the ways in which the New Moon is integrated into the larger sequence of events.

Two Important Activations

Each month there are two activations which naturally occur to support your spiritual growth and transformation. These activations occur: when the Moon is conjunct with the Sun, and when the Moon is conjunct with Uranus.

The activation we’re most aware of occurs every New Moon when the Moon passes over the Sun (a conjunction). This activation carries a new sense of Cosmic purpose. This is one of the reasons the New Moon offers such a powerful manifesting time each month, and why many of us have learned how to practice setting New Moon intentions in alignment with the Lunar Matrix. (For more information about setting New Moon intentions, visit the Lunar Matrix.)

The lesser known activation occurs when the Moon passes over the planet Uranus. Uranus activates the rhythms coming from the Galactic Center. It enables us to see and experience beyond the physical plane of reality.

This year’s Winter Solstice receives support from both of these activations. The New Moon occurs just one week before the Solstice, and the powerful Uranus activation happens the day of Solstice.

During the Winter Solstice a positive cosmic shift will occur on Earth. This is shift has been predicted by mystic seers, and is being felt world wide in various way. A misunderstanding of the energies has allowed for a certain level of panic and apprehension, but rest assured, this is a positive shift in consciousness.

A Higher Stage of Human Development

This New Moon will initiate a period of accelerated growth, accompanied by the deeply-felt anticipation of a higher stage of human development which is about to take place. The accelerated growth is supporting our ability to hold higher and higher frequencies of light. This is similar to the way a crystal holds light, with clarity and coherence. This is the capacity into which we are expanding.

In the coming week, between the New Moon and the Winter Solstice, the path of the Moon crosses Pluto, Mars, and Neptune. The significance of this is two-fold. First, the spiritual work you have done up until now will be summoned to support you moving forward, through the use of your inner strength. Secondly, your inner integrity (how you react to unforeseen circumstances), will support your actions this week, helping you move forward intentionally, and thereby anchoring your progress and acceleration.

The New Moon will also trigger a new ability in which you can begin identifying with a higher level of functioning. As you as your raise your vibration into the higher light spectrums you expand to this higher level of living and operating. You also consciously experience being connected to something larger. The capacity now exists to function, live, and react from this higher level of consciousness.

This ability will need to be nurtured. What this means on the most practical level is that some people will nurture their new ability and other won’t. Those who nurture it will gravitate toward each other and embrace a new power of group authority and the capacity to build new worlds. The ability for some to embrace this shift and others not, is bound to create a split in the world between those who live in the past and those who begin working, living, and operating in a new era of light and empowerment.

A New Era is Born of Capricorn Light

Capricorn Light changes frequency on Dec 21, 2012This new power is symbolized by the zodiac sign of Capricorn, born at the Solstice. With this year’s activation, the zodiac sign of Capricorn will, from this point forward, carry a new quality of energy. This transition will be fully activated on the Winter Solstice as the Sun moves into Capricorn. During the Uranus-Moon activation (mentioned earlier) the Sun simultaneously moves to 1 degree Capricorn and the activation of the “new Capricorn” is complete. The world split may now be defined as those living under the “Old Capricorn,” ruled by Saturn, and those living under the “New Capricorn,” ruled by Uranus.

Capricorn is pure power that is anchored by the crystalline forms which have the ability to hold light. Crystals have been a teacher for us in hold to hold light. The higher stage of development spoken of earlier also involves your ability hold this Capricornian Light within your own crystalline body.

There will be more about the New Capricorn Light in Winter Solstice 2012 article to be published in a few days. Please share this article with your friends and pass on the Cosmic gifts of the Winter Solstice.

A Final Note

There is a lot going on in the world of expanding consciousness. These activations are taking place to help you. Remember that not everyone will take advantage of the opportunities this month. Trusting who you are beyond all the hype will be a good strategy and coping mechanism in the coming days. There is a new dimension of “being-ness” coming to form, and the Universe has slowly and methodically been preparing to help us make an important shift in consciousness.

Set your New Moon intentions to welcome and nurture this powerful shift. This is an exciting time for all of us. Feel it, feel yourself changing in new ways, and support the changes. The universe is a wonderful experience. Let your consciousness expand to hold more Light.

A Brief Description of the Planets, Sun & Moon

Learn Astrology with Esoteric ThinkingIt is important to realize that Astrology is a symbolic language. The language of astrology interprets and describes the overall cosmic pattern, a rhythm of wholeness and intelligence, which is operating both in the universe at a grand level and operating within each of us at a smaller level.

These two levels, the universal and the personal, are typically referred to as the macrocosm and microcosm. The connection between  the two is a fundamental principle of esoteric astrology.


[icon_teaser type=”Sun” style=”astrology16″ title=”Sun”]The centralizing and harmonizing source of light, and life’s sustaining and vitalizing Solar energies. The original LOGOS and integrating factor that gives purpose to individual and holistic existence.[/icon_teaser]

[icon_teaser type=”Moon” style=”astrology16″ title=”Moon”]A reflection of the Solar principle which provides form, organic activity, and bio-psychic structures.

[fancy_box][fancy_header3 variation=”teal”]Advanced Understandings[/fancy_header3]

Each of the planets has a transcendent aspect, illustrated here in relationship to Mercury.

Mercury has the ability to function in a higher capacity within the higher-self or higher-mind of individuals who are able to pierce through Saturn’s initial boundary to more transcendent understandings. A typical way in which this initial boundary operates is the division between the physical world and the metaphysical world. For those who experience the universe as only that which can be seen, calculated, classified, observed, and proven by a modern science methodology, Mercury does not  function as a conscious planetary pair with Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.

Mercury functions as a common planetary pair with both JUPITER and SATURN.
Mercury functions as an uncommon (and in most persons, unconscious) planetary pair with URANUS, NEPTUNE and PLUTO.

MERCURY / JUPITER: Expanding the intuitive function of the mind.
MERCURY / SATURN: To architect new systems of complexity reflecting a new structural need within Humankind.
MERCURY / URANUS: Bringing planetary revelations to the conscious mind.
MERCURY / NEPTUNE: New symbols become new ideals for Humanity-as-a-whole.
MERCURY / PLUTO: Radically transforms the higher mind with a new level of identification built on new ideals and planetary revelations.[/fancy_box]

Trans-personal Planets or Planets of the Awakened Mind

Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto function to bring Galactic ideas, information, and rhythms of wholeness to the solar system. These planets operate in an unconscious manner for those persons who have not yet begun to awaken to these rhythms from beyond our solar system.

What is the Lunar Matrix?

Your Lunar Matrix Guide

The Lunar Matrix grids of LightThe newest form of esoteric astrology has moved away from the idea that negative elements of cosmic energy are influencing humanity. It easy to recognize the Moon’s relationship in the growth cycle of nature.

In the past, our consciousness connection with the Moon has been purely instinctual.  With the evolution of consciousness making it easier to sense esoteric phenomenon, instinctual are slowly being replaced by intuition.

The Moon gives you complete control of your daily life, once you understand to the secret of how the Moon functions to support you. Their are only positive influences in the stars and solar system encouraging life toward the continual evolution of consciousness. Astrology is a positive expression of this cosmic support you can use in your personal life.

[blockquote align=”center” variation=”teal”]The Lunar Matrix is an important key in unlocking your personal potential.[/blockquote]

The Moon & The Lunar Matrix

[fancy_box]

There are four important functions of the Lunar Matrix.

[fancy_numbers variation=”teal”]

  1. The Moon and its relationship to the Sun creates a powerful and changing web of light surrounding Earth.
  2. This complex pattern and grid of light is formed by the Moon as it moves around the Earth.
  3. Your ability to access these grids is called the Lunar Matrix.
  4. It supports manifesting, creativity, personal growth, and cosmic transformation.[/fancy_numbers][/fancy_box]

[fancy_header variation=”teal”]The Lunar Matrix Secret[/fancy_header]

Here is the secret in a nutshell. The Moon is your personal connector to the cosmos and all the other planets in our solar system. Lunar light, which changes daily, is the distributor of all the energies life needs in order for growth and transformation to occur. The Moon’s light is constantly supporting, loving, and caring for us. It also keeps a strict schedule of growth.

It is important to grow and change at the same rate at which the Moon changes to take advantage of the natural support the universe is offering you. This is your opportunity to sail with the wind and to feel your lunar quickening. Once you understand the available potential, you can fully participate with the natural support the Moon is offering.

[blockquote align=”center” variation=”teal”]Life is meant to be lived in tune with the Moon.[/blockquote]

The Lunar Matrix is constantly offering you help in very specific ways. Learning to change and grow with the Lunar cycle is like floating downstream, moving with the current. When you attune yourself to this cycle you can experience a natural sense of ease and flow in your life, and become attuned to the natural cycles of manifesting and co-creation.

Moving Forward with the Lunar Matrix

[fancy_box][fancy_list style=”circle_arrow” variation=”teal”]

  • The Lunar Matrix is a dynamic grid of Cosmic Light. This light is both alive and conscious.
  • The Lunar Matrix connects you to the life with light, the solar system, the Milky Way, and your higher-self.
  • The Lunar Matrix is a grid which expands and helps you co-create as other conscious individuals all over the planet tap in.
  • You can connect through light and vibration to others who are connection the the Lunar Matrix.[/fancy_list][/fancy_box]

The Hidden Portal of Rebirth

 

Full Moon Lunar Eclipse Nov 28 – The Hidden Portal of Rebirth

Sun in Sagittarius, Moon in Gemini

This week’s Full Moon Lunar Eclipse brings the opportunity for a true “emotional rebirth” gifting you with new abilities and capacities that can manifest completely new possibilities in your life.

Have you ever considered what it would be like to experience a rebirth? I’m speaking of an emotional rebirth, a rebirth of feelings so powerful and free you know no limits, no boundaries, or rules. A rebirth of emotional freedom from collective purpose and reason, capable of arousing a depth of feeling to which no group togetherness can compare.

These changes are possible because the Lunar Eclipse opens a powerful Cosmic portal, or doorway. The portal is caused by the sudden absence of Light during the time of the eclipse, when the Moon is normally fully lit and activated. During the eclipse, when the Moon’s light is darkened, the portal opens and Galactic and Cosmic support uses this unusual opportunity to deliver gifts to the Earth from beyond our solar system. Let’s explore the potential of this special Cosmic portal and what it means for you.

An Unusual Astrological Alignment of Planets

At the time of this week’s Lunar eclipse, the Moon is conjunct with the planet Jupiter. A Lunar eclipse connected to a Jupiter conjunction is extraordinarily rare. (In a conjunction both planetary bodies are together, located just a few zodiac degrees apart.) Jupiter supports a higher level of integration and personal expansion, and its connection to the eclipse indicates a real possibility for the world as a whole to expand in ways not seen before. For you as an individual, this indicates a unique and powerful window of opportunity for releasing emotional patterns which are tied to your past.

At the same time, the planet Venus is conjunct to Saturn, indicating an opportunity for the rebuilding of what’s most important to you. What’s interesting to note here is the depth of emotional rebuilding possible, as this conjunction is also supporting the very foundations and values by which you live.

The relationship between these two sets of planets indicates remarkable expansive release and change. There is also the definite possibility here for an over-whelming feeling of chaos, or anxiety. This kind of response is natural, due to the rapid rate of expansion, especially for those unaware or unwilling to make to necessary adjustments. What’s required here is the ability and understanding to go within and reorient oneself in order to expand at the potentially rapid rate which is indicated.

December 21, 2012, and the End of the Mayan Calendar

Although there is some disagreement among scholars about the specific ending of the Mayan Long Count, ranging from November 2011 to December 21, 2012, there is no doubt that we are in the final days of an important cosmic shift. This shift, and the epic mythology around 2012 has been prophesied by many through time. Mystics, visionaries and esoteric philosophers from around the world are looking forward to December 21, 2012 and the Winter Solstice as a powerful time of opportunity in the evolution of Planet Earth.

I believe the synchronicity of a Lunar Eclipse as we stand on the eve of the 2012 Winter Solstice, is by Cosmic design. I believe the gifts delivered through this Cosmic Portal will play a huge role in the events which are about to unfold on Earth. This is especially true for individuals who can consciously recognize the significance of its timing in relation to world events and the larger shift so many are anticipating. Here I’m referring to the shift symbolized by the end of the Mayan calendar and other ancient prophesies corresponding to the end of 2012. Please be aware, I fully anticipate that this shift will be expansive in nature, and not cataclysmic. There is no need for fear.

The Four Week Portal – What Does it All Mean?

Let’s review what we’ve discussed so far. A Cosmic portal was opened during the Full Moon Lunar eclipse. It’s supported by an unusual and extremely rare planetary configuration. The astrology indicates a capacity for rapid internal expansion, and for some, a profound level of emotional integration through the releasing of damaging emotional patterns and limiting fear-based beliefs.

The portal that opens at the eclipse will be open for 4 weeks, through the Winter Solstice, December 21, and ending at the next Full Moon on December 28. All of this is linked to the synchronicity of the great shifts of 2012, culminating in the seasonal power and energetic new birth associated with the Winter Solstice.

What this means for you personally is that what’s being established at a Cosmic level will be experienced as a greater level of unity here on Earth. This is good news for troubled times. The source of this unity, by design, will be emotionally felt more than intellectually understood. With Saturn moving through the zodiac sign of Scorpio, the depth of realization is hidden in the roots of consciousness itself, not in external “ideas” of Divine intervention, or rescue. Unity will first be felt as a fundamental trust and cooperation with life itself. Your conscious connection now to the planetary life-force carries with it the capacity for self-transcendence.

Besides experiencing a greater unity with life, you will also need to adjust to the expansions. The coming four weeks allow for this crucial adjustment period in order to reorient you to what you are feeling and experiencing. You may feel excitement and inspired eagerness. You may also experience anxiety, fear, or instability. Excitement and expansion, along with the corresponding release of old emotional patterns, can lead to feelings of chaos, especially if you are unaware of what is happening at the cosmic level.

Remember, what is happening on the planetary level is also happening at the deepest levels of your being. You’re in an “emotional rebirth.” You are coming into a new capacity to transcend and let go, to feel more deeply and powerfully than ever before, and to connect with life and the planet through a new experience of unity.

Tools for the Next Two Weeks

The cosmic portal will be open until the next Full Moon on December 28. This is a unique time when you can make permanent changes on a deep level. The following tools will help guide you through the coming two weeks, until the New Moon on December 13, when we will receive new energies and new tools to support our expansion and integration.

  • Remind yourself daily of the big picture and what is happening overall. Remember that anxiety and feelings of instability are only indicating that your integration isn’t fully completed. The key lies in making simple adjustments to return to your center.
  • Grounding and connecting to Earth are vitally important to maintain stability. Consciously access feelings of unity and trust in life, in whichever way is natural for you.
  • Sometime during the next two weeks, share a meal with friends who understand at a deeper level what we are all feeling. Food helps us connect to the life-force of Earth. Sharing the ritual of a meal connects us in an emotionally authentic way and supports our integration.
  • Practice reacting to circumstances and responding to daily life events in the present moment, from your emotional center, from your new place of “emotional rebirth.”
  • Visualize and feel your connection to a place deep within the heart of Earth, to the lightbody of Gaia. Here you are free from the restraints of cultural and social conditioning and experience your connection to the unity of Life.

Summary

The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse is a powerful event establishing within you the ability to feel and experience the unity of life in a greatly expanded manner. From this place you now have the freedom to release old emotional patterns, and experience your birth into a new level of emotional freedom. As you move forward toward the Winter Solstice you will feel expansion and ease, fundamental trust, and the sense of cooperation with life itself.

Esoteric Astrology

Esoteric Astrology is moving us beyond what most people traditionally think of as “astrology.” Astrology has a long history and rich tradition, but in current times there has also been a tendency for cultural biases and limited understanding to relegate it to the realm of entertainment, or at best, a discussion of positive and negative character traits.

Esoteric Astrology expands our awareness of what is possible. Recent metaphysical shifts support our ability to experience a more expanded view of the nature of “reality.” Esoteric Astrology can respond to these new understandings by revealing the hidden universal principles behind all of life’s manifestations. These principles are more readily accessible now then ever before.

Because of the recent shifts and expansions in awareness, we can more easily experience life as a process of phases rather than isolated circumstances. New understandings of hidden processes and cyclic transformation is  anchoring our consciousness in a new and profound way. Understanding life as a cyclic process of continual transformation is the foundation for Esoteric Astrology, a new direction in astrological perspective.
