Astrology Article: Harmonizing Energy and Overcoming Scatteredness

The New Moon right after the summer solstice, which occurred on June 21, represents an important milestone Lunar cycle, it important to understand the New Moon astrology theme. It’s through this The New Moon because it helps initiate the coming season of summer. Through the theme of this New Moon you can get a glimpse of the active energies you’ll be able to use throughout the summer months. The New Moon in Cancer provides a unique type of harmonizing focus each person can access. These focusing energies are easily concentrated, like a magnifying lens, in order to expand the experience. It is this paradox of harmonizing the normally opposing concentrating and expanding energies which makes Cancer one of the more mystical zodiac signs. We are all multi-dimensional beings. The mystical energies released at the New Moon are supporting a deep, perhaps unconscious, sense of expansion into a new awareness of your multi-dimensional connections. This happens through cooperation between more than one level of existence.  One way to speak of your multi-dimensional experiences is through your connection to your larger (“higher”) Self. The Cancer New Moon is supporting easier than usual access as you attempt to make new connections with your higher-self. In the coming lunar month an attempt to nurture a more conscious connection to your higher self will be rewarded by feelings of rebirth. By nurturing your dedication to new forms of life emerging within, you’ll experience a type of a beneficial symbiotic relationship between these higher levels or frequencies of your own Inner Being.

Astrology Patterns:

June New Moon Chart 2014The active patterns involve a partial kite and a partial grand cross. They’re considered partial because only some, not all, of their elements are present. This indicates a need to integrate disparate energies. You may experience this as feeling scattered. This feeling of being scattered is also evident with the positions of both Venus and Mercury located in Gemini. (Venus and Mercury are also balsamic in aspect to the Sun. The balsamic phase with the Sun results in the letting go of everything which isn’t needed to build the future.) The key point to consider this month is that the Cancer New Moon energy wants to harmonize this quality of scatteredness. Remember that Cancer has a unique ability to integrate, or harmonize, by expanding and concentrating at the same time. The challenge in the current pattern is to develop a new capacity to function in practical ways at more than one level or dimension of experience. The solution to this challenge is seen in the three-point sextile/trine involving Saturn, Neptune, and Pluto. Together in this configuration these three planets represents the higher-self’s attempt to bring a new awareness of stability (Moon), and expansion of identity (Jupiter in Cancer), into your life by transcending  (Neptune) the feeling of being pulled in too many directions (Venus and Mercury in Gemini). In conclusion, it is beneficial to work with issues which rise from the paradox principle of contracting for the purpose of expanding.  Doing New Moon work around this paradox encourages connections with your highest-self. Living with awareness while working in the mundane (physical) world brings out the multi-dimensional capability within each of us. In turn, this quality of focus expands your ability to connect at many levels.

In Summary

The New Moon is providing a new ability this month to focus and function at more than one level of awareness through the help of the higher-self.  This is happening in part through a unique combination of Cancer and Gemini energies which need to be harmonized in order to overcome feelings of scatteredness. If you experience circumstances of scatteredness, being your focus to your connections with your higher-self and feel yourself emerging into a new relationship that transcends the scatteredness. In this way, the New Moon is supporting your experience of being a multi-dimensional being within the Universe. It is my deepest privilege to share these thoughts with you.

Full Moon Astrology Article: Accessing Your Upper Chambers of Consciousness

We all desire, and at times actively seek, higher states of consciousness. Our June Full Moon brings the opportunity for you to expand into these new areas of awareness seldom accessed. Creative integration and the flow of Spirit are two important aspects which occur within these higher regions of consciousness, or upper chambers of the mind.

Creativity and the flow of Spirit are just two of the aspects that are being directly activated by the Full Moon. These Full Moon energies are perfectly aligned to facilitate your greater access to those areas of consciousness which so often elude you.

The Gift of the Unexpected

As you begin to experience activity in these regions of your psyche, and anticipate the opportunities for expanded awareness over the coming two weeks, pay extra attention to how you react to unfamiliar situations.

It’s through the unexpected you’ll first begin to access these higher states of consciousness. Unfamiliar or even shocking experiences are your new friends during the next two weeks. It is through the unexpected that you forget, at least for a moment, what is normal, natural, and expected. In this moment you access what lies beyond your normal comfort zone.

The hidden opportunity in the unfamiliar lies in the way in which you embrace the unexpected.

This is true especially if you’re able see the unexpected without the label of “good or bad.” By embracing the unexpected you align with the creative flow of life and spirit that are the constantly moving energies within the upper chambers of your psyche.

One way to embrace the unexpected is by tending to the spirit in which you embrace transitions during the next two weeks. Transitions represent your ability to go with the flow of spirit. Holding awareness of the possibility of a new stage of development is crucial in your readiness. You will begin to notice a shift if you are able to readily accept transitions in your life with grace and ease.

Think baby steps and small increments. Assimilation and integration are key ideas in this process. Your opportunity is to become more aware of the flow of spirit. Experiencing this flow and activity will increase your capacity for intuition and your feeling of connection to psychic realms previously cut off from your consciousness. You’ll begin to experience a new flow of spirit within your own “upper chambers.”

Astrology Patterns

Full Moon Astrology Chart for June 2014There are several notable patterns in our Full Moon Chart.

First pattern: There is a trine/sextile square involving Jupiter, Venus, Pluto, and Saturn. This pattern is energizing a dynamic type of activity which becomes effective through intentional integration.

In their respective positions in the zodiac, Saturn structures life to radiate spirit, Pluto supports the will to transcend, Jupiter provides stability as new perspectives unfold, and Venus releases old concepts of “good and bad” which have become anchored as possessive values. Working together, they provide an expanding and dynamic activity capable of connecting you with spirit through new realms that have the potential of transcending your everyday perceptions.

Second pattern: The Sun, Mercury, and ‘part of fortune’ are grouped together in a conjunction which is in opposition to the Moon. Together, the processes of spiritual growth (Sun), taking pleasure in mature reactions (part of fortune), and adapting to new situations (Mercury) are embraced with a new illumination (Full Moon).

Third pattern: Mars and Uranus are in opposition, indicating your capacity for reacting to the unexpected. This may create a “need to react,” but you have a choice on the reaction you choose with the help of two key trines. I find these two trines particularly interesting. Both trines create relationships with the Sun and Moon in a very unique way. Uranus connects the Moon, and Mars connects the Sun. These two connections activate the Full Moon (Sun/Moon opposition) and bring together the integrative function of the upper areas of consciousness in a special way.

In Summary

It’s when these three distinct patterns all come together that something special happens. In short, dynamic activity (sextile/trine square) and illumination is taking place in the upper regions of consciousness (Mar/Uranus trine Sun and Moon.)

In the coming days, you’ll have the opportunity to experience a new type of awareness (Full Moon) by incorporating a positive perspective when confronting new situations or the unexpected. Set your intention to experience the flow and creative aspect of spirit within whatever is unfolding and changing around you.

This is the perfect opportunity to experience new awareness, especially by intentionally embracing transitions and choosing to approach unexpected circumstances with ease and grace. The dynamic stability and inner poise initiated with the May 28th New Moon, creates a strong foundation beneath this dynamic awareness you have access to during the Full Moon phase.

May the light of our expanding consciousness shine bright.
