Current Lunar Cycle

What old beliefs and habits will you release? Your decisions and actions this week will help you prepare for the manifesting wave that arrives with next week’s New Moon.

Current Astrology Pattern: Holding Your Own Success

Each Last Quarter Moon represents an opportunity for letting go in areas in your live that may be preventing you from moving into a new pattern of growth. Because of this months powerful theme dealing with areas related to the discover of your own truth, this week’s focus is in anchoring what your moving into the future.

One of the deeper truths of our being can be related to how we identify with things out side ourselves. Most of us find it easy to identify with our own emotions or feelings, but how often do we take the time to consider how our own identity is linked else where.

As the week before the New Moon unfolds, the astrological patterns are supporting how you can let go ways you identify with things that you have out grown. Allow me to use an example from my own life. I’m an amateur tournament golfer who has been recovering from a potential golf ending shoulder injury for the last 6 months. This has been such a long and painful process that I had found myself identifying with the group of golfer who feel they can’t win a golf tournament. I made the conscious effort to abandon my identification with that group and focused on identifying myself as a tournament winner. I held the feeling of this new identification for the entire tournament, and I won the tournament.

Astrology Patterns of Support

Oct-Last-Qtr-Moon-2013You’ll be able to use this week’s astrology to let go of patterns symbolizing areas you would like to move past in your life. The easiest way to anchor this type of identity shift is through the conscious use of the “Leo” aspect of the Last Quarter Moon.

Our Leo Moon provides an ability to “show off” your intentions to the world. It doesn’t need to be as dramatic as winning a tournament, but it does suggest that showing the world our own symbols of achievement is the easiest way to anchor a clear identity shift.

Any way in which you decide to dramatize your our identity shift is appropriate. This can be as simple as going out for coffee in celebration of a new focus, or dramatic as filing legal papers indicating the start of a new course of action.

There are 4 key planets supporting this process. The Sun, North Node, Saturn, and Mercury are lined up in a tight row in the zodiac sign of Scorpio. What’s important in this 4 planet line up is there specific order. Mercury, in it’s position, is accelerating growth, but only once you are able to link together how you have been identifying (Mercury/Saturn conjunction) with obsolete symbols (N. Node/Sun, balsamic to Saturn) in your life.

The Sun only makes one conjunct Saturn each year. This year has special significance because of a trine to Neptune (allowing you to dissolve what’s obsolete). This is the time to anchor your new identity (Sun/Saturn in Scorpio) for moving forward. It represents the conscious truth of your being taking a step forward. You can let go of the identity you no longer want to be associated with and live the deeper truth of who you have discovered yourself to be.

Current Lunar Cycle

The Full Moon illuminates and activates whatever was released with the manifesting wave of New Moon energy two weeks ago. This week look for ways to celebrate and take inspired action, especially from whatever you have embraced or experienced since the New Moon. Be patient with challenges that emerge in the coming days, recognizing that they are also a necessary part of your expansion.

A Lunar Eclipse happens when the Earth passes between the Sun and the Moon, casting a shadow over the face of the illuminated Moon. From an astrological perspective this is a very special event. During a Lunar eclipse, when the constant connection between Sun and Moon is momentarily broken, a portal opens in the heavens at the exact degree of the Full Moon. This portal allows cosmic energies to stream to Earth, delivering a gift beyond that which is normally available. The gifts of an eclipse, arriving from deep within our galaxy, provide support, realization, and skills to be integrated by humanity for the betterment of all.

Steven’s weekly astrology reading offers unique insight into the specific potentials of Cosmic support available to you at this time.

Full Moon Eclipse Astrology: A Glimpse of Your Soul

The gift brought to us during this week’s eclipse provides a glimpse into your Soul and how you can better relate to your Higher-self. The eclipse portal will stay open until the next Full Moon, giving you a full lunar month to experience new ways of seeing your consciousness operating as your Higher-self.

To access a glimpse into your Soul, it’s important to make a distinction between your Soul consciousness and ego consciousness. Ego makes sense of the world by placing everything in one of two categories, good or bad. The Soul, on the other hand, operates from holism, beyond the limiting ideas of “good and bad.”

Soul operates in the world from a slightly different point of view. Soul sees the world in terms of connections, integration, and the actions needed to realize a greater sense of unity or wholeness. Soul operates in unity through two fundamental forces that we call “Love” and “Will.”

Love and Will

“Love” seen from the consciousness of Soul is based on connection. It’s the feeling that everything is working toward a great unity. This is true even of those aspects of reality that are hard to reconcile. This is a unity based on an intuitive knowing that Spirit is actively working to create unity between everything and everyone.

This unity is a type of dynamic wholeness. It’s dynamic because of the integration of the “Will.” Will is the spiritual force behind action. It is activity that integrates and unites, based on your awareness of how everything connects. Dynamic action occurs when individuals connect freely through the sense of alignment with the whole. Spiritual Will, then, is the conscious use of your activity working toward a greater sense of wholeness.

Love provides the connection, Will provides the directed activity. Both together allow for connection to evolve into a greater wholeness.

Anchor Your Gift

October Lunar Eclipse 2013The Eclipse is offering you a conscious glimpse of your Soul operating in the world through your use of “Love” and “Will.” To anchor this gift, notice when you’re moving into ego perception and seeing the world in black and white, or “good and bad.” When you notice your world narrowing and your perspective polarizes, think of your Soul and feel your Higher Self urging an expanded view. Think “Love and Will” and see where your consciousness takes you.

The role of Jupiter in the Full Moon astrology chart is offering some additional insight into how to anchor your gift of glimpsing your Soul. Jupiter is allowing for an easy expansion into appreciation, especially the idea that “everything in the world plays its part.” Seemingly unrelated facts aren’t unrelated at all, and in the big picture everything is connected. One of Jupiter’s solutions to help anchor your appreciation is to celebrate. Throw a party! Life is better than it seems, says Jupiter, so let’s appreciate this idea and celebrate.

To help anchor this gift of a glimpse of your Soul, hold thankfulness, and back it up with ACTION: festive action. Celebrate the good in your life. Celebrate the complexity. Celebrate the fact that your awareness is always expanding.

Use your will to actively acknowledge your realization that the world is more connected than your ego can fathom.
