Astrology Article: A Breakthrough in Consciousness

Our New Moon Astrology is coming into view through the lens of our experiences of several months of increasing intensity in our world. We have experienced this intensity in a variety of ways. From an astrological perspective, the reasons for the intensity are the result of an overall trend of increasing frequencies on Earth. These increasing frequencies are a form of expanded consciousness and are directly related to the influence of Uranus over the past several months.

With our current New Moon there is the opportunity now for a huge shift. This shift comes in the form of a breakthrough. The build-up of intensity has led to this opportunity for a new shift in consciousness. This is really good news for everyone who has the desire to tap into their own higher states of awareness, and corresponds to a very positive New Moon message for all.

A Trend of Increasing Frequencies

Uranus supports our evolution in consciousness. This is an expansive energy of freedom that transcends the forms that already exist in the world. On a practical level, the energies that we associate with Uranus are often experienced through extremes. At one extreme is the experience of unexpected events, which can feel like chaos when viewed from a concrete interpretation. At the other extreme is an increase in intuition and expansion into higher frequencies that include with new perspectives and insight into the processes of change. Both of these extremes are consistent with our experiences in learning to cope and adapt to the prominent Uranian energies that are active today.

Our last several Lunar cycles have illustrated this trend of increasing frequencies. They are tied to our experiences of intensity, and are also directly related to higher brain function and higher levels of human consciousness. As the evolution of human consciousness continues to advance, the concept of increasing frequencies takes on much more significance.

Those of you who have been following the Lunar Journal over the past several months have seen the prominence that Uranus has been playing. This is in my opinion much more than a coincidence, and is directly related to recent measurable shifts of frequency on Earth.

With our current New Moon we will see even more clearly the ways in which Uranus is stimulating our consciousness through these increases in frequency.

The Uranus Connection to the Schumann Resonance

One of the phenomena I have been observing of late is the dramatic increase of the Schumann Resonance on Earth. The Schumann Resonance is a measurement of the low-level electromagnetic field that is present at Earth’s surface. It has been referred to as the heartbeat, or rhythm, of the Earth. Since measurements began in the early 1960’s, the Schumann Resonance has been absolutely steady at 7.83 Hz. This measurement is closely related in humans to the relaxed waking state known as low-level Alpha. Alpha brain waves are in the range of 8-12 Hz. The alert waking state of brain waves is “Beta.” Low Beta starts at 12 Hz.

In 2014 measurements of the Schumann Resonance suddenly began increasing, showing periodic low-level spiking in the range of 14 Hz. This corresponds to low-level Beta waves related to our alert waking state. These spikes in resonance have been increasing ever since. In the last three months they’ve increased at an unprecedented rate, in ranges above 30 Hz. The January 31 spike above 36+ Hz. was the highest ever recorded up to that time. These spikes have continued and I have seen unconfirmed reports which say there was a spike of 90 Hz. on April 16th.

To put this in perspective within the theme of expanding consciousness, these higher frequencies of the Earth’s field correspond to the higher frequencies of our own brain waves. Beta waves of our alert waking state are in the range of 13-30 Hz. Gamma rays are above 30 Hz. and are associated with increased brain function including high-level processing power of information and higher levels of intuition. Significantly, when the frequencies of Beta and Gamma waves are out of balance we experience various forms and intensities of stress.

These measurements are yet another way to understand the extremes of intensity we are currently experiencing in our lives. If the general frequencies within and around us are rising – and periodically spiking – then we can be experiencing unprecedented levels of stress. We can also be experiencing new levels of awareness. Both are evidence of the actions of Uranus in our lives.

(For more on the Schumann Resonance, the Heart Math Institute has a graph of current readings from several sites around the world. Gregg Braden has an excellent series on Gaia TV where he goes into the practical science of frequency.)

Although science doesn’t yet have an explanation for the recent increases in the Schumann Resonance, because we can relate these frequencies directly to the frequencies of human brain waves, it’s my hypothesis that the increases we are measuring in Earth’s electromagnetic field are directly related to the expansions of consciousness that Uranus is supporting at this time.

What we do know from astrology is that in recent months Uranus has been directly and dynamically influencing our consciousness. This influence is both personal and global, with the immediate effect of an increase in the frequency of consciousness in our world. The measurements of the Schumann Resonance are a physical indicator of the corresponding increasing energies within us and on the Earth.

Astrology Pattern

Once again, as it has over the past several months, our astrology pattern features the planet Uranus, which is associated with the transformation that is possible through an increase of higher consciousness and frequency.

The most significant aspect of the current New Moon chart is the new-phase relationship of Mercury and the Moon with Uranus. New-phase means that Mercury, the Moon, and the Sun are each less than 10 degrees ahead of Uranus. The new-phase relationship is significant because it further emphasizes the momentum of a brand new beginning. More specifically, Mercury and the Moon working with Uranus in this position signify a breakthrough, or leap, of new consciousness and new levels of intelligence.

On the personal level this new beginning also represents access to a new quality of personal being. The expansion will offer each of us new potentials of opportunity. Your expanded consciousness will allow you to break free from limited ways of thinking, including the limited ways you’ve accessed your intuition. The new expanded qualities are related to all aspects of your awareness. They’re connected to your intellect, your ability to process information, your intuitive perceptions, and your access to your spiritual potential.

This expansion and the opportunity for breakthrough also helps to provide context for all of the intensity we have been experiencing on behalf of Uranus over the past several months. For without the preparation of these previous levels of Uranian intensity, our consciousness would not be ready to take advantage of the current potential for breakthrough.

In short, this astrology pattern is the very definition of a breakthrough in consciousness. The way in which these new potentials will transform our lives remains to be seen. We are entering uncharted territory! What we do know is that this coming month represents a continued and significant expansion.

Our New Moon chart holds a great deal of positive potential and positive momentum. I believe this to be a breakthrough month in our evolution toward a new quality of being through our connection to higher consciousness.

Happy New Moon.

Astrology Article: Facing the Consequences

Our Full Moon astrology brings into focus the real possibility of creating a new level of abundance and cooperation in the world, both on a personal level as well as collectively and in the culture-at-large. This opportunity is provided with a requirement: To receive the new potentials we must be willing to take an honest look at our lives and our circumstances and our current trajectory. This is true on a personal level as well as our membership in the collective.

Today’s article will focus on three planetary influences that represent the opportunity for a distinct turning point.

This opportunity is symbolized in the patterns of Jupiter and Uranus conjunct the Moon and Sun, and linked by a Pluto T-square (see chart). This Lunar pattern will have a direct impact on our lives over the coming two weeks. This is true on both the personal and collective levels.

The  astrology chart for the Full Moon presents a poignant contrast between two possibilities, and two potential realities. The Uranus/Sun pattern amplifies a greater optimism associated with human togetherness and cooperation, while the Jupiter/Moon pattern emphasizes a potential breakdown in the patterns and relationships between the individual and society.

The Moon/Jupiter Challenge

Full Moon Astrology Chart: Apr 2017Jupiter is the planet of expansion through integration and management of relationships and social structures. At the personal level, Jupiter allows you expand into society for success. From society’s position, Jupiter controls and manages your participation in the social structures and status. These relationships can be positive or negative, depending on intention and alignment.

The biggest challenge facing each of us now, with the Moon conjunct Jupiter, is the task of clearly asking and seeing the quality of our alignment with existing social structures.  In what ways are the structures of your life serving you? Who and what is ultimately controlling you?  And the deeper question now: “Are you okay with this?”

This is a loaded question with many implications. It requires us to acknowledge the elements within society that manage human beings for the sake of control and greed rather than for the public good. These patterns  are currently evident within the corporate media’s portrayal of reality which includes narratives of growth at all cost, the war on terror, and reduction of individual liberties. With the current activation, these destructive patterns could continue to escalate.

What’s being called for with the Full Moon is a shift in consciousness with the opportunity for new possibilities to emerge that are centered on abundance and prosperity.

This opportunity for abundance and prosperity is shown in the individualized approach to the Moon/Jupiter conjunction. Through the overall pattern of the chart there’s the opportunity for individuals to personally approach this realization of external control, leading to the choice to pursue new possibilities for peace and prosperity. Willingness to face the consequences of our previous actions as a culture can now lead to a new level of empowerment and participation in the reconstruction of society.

In other words, if we face the consequences of what’s really going on in our lives, we can shift it. Again, this is true on a personal level as well as collectively. The transformation of society in a more positive direction begins with our willingness to face our own problems and, with eyes wide open, knowing the risks and accepting the consequences of our actions, then we can choose to work in cooperation with others. Each action we take contributes to the larger movement toward a more inclusive society.

The Sun/Uranus Challenge

The planet Uranus has played a prominent role in the astrology of the last several months and this Full Moon chart is no exception. Uranus always promotes freedom and individuality, even at the expense of destroying whatever stands in the way. Uranus holds such a high vibration that whatever structure can’t hold its frequency of wholeness will be transformed or even shattered.

During this Full Moon, the Sun’s position at 3 degrees behind Uranus, sets the theme of “letting go” that will be played out over the coming two weeks. With the Sun in balsamic phase to Uranus, this theme of letting go of the past comes into play.

At the collective level, societies around the world are faced with letting go of all low-frequency control of the planet and humanity in general. However, this letting go doesn’t happen in a vacuum. The letting go allows for something greater. The accompanying expansion allows for greater potential to creatively come forth.

The Sabian archetype for Uranus indicates the intuitive awareness that’s available now, including the ability to receive new revelations of even greater possibilities than we have seen or imagined in the past.

♅ — 25° ARIES — THE POSSIBILITY FOR MAN TO GAIN EXPERIENCE AT TWO LEVELS OF BEING
THEME: PROBATION
ARCHETYPE: The revelation of new potentialities.
COMMENTARY: To operate on both inner and outer levels; be open, able, and willing to shape a translucent mind around spiritual fulfillment. Through faith, we can only experience what we truly believe we can experience.

I like what this Sabian says about faith: “Through faith, we can only experience what we truly believe we can experience.” On a personal level, the Sun/Uranus conjunction is a call to each of us to experience greater freedom with the faith that new potentials are not only possible, but attainable. It is possible now to have the freedom and abundance in which we truly believe.

Pluto’s Challenge

The real opportunity of this Full Moon lies in Pluto which completes the T-square with both Jupiter and Uranus. As a collective, we have reached the point of facing the consequences of our current trajectory: either we can continue on the current path with increasing levels of corrupt power, or we can take actions to begin a new path by building relationships of collaboration and trust. This includes our relationships with all forms of leadership and our choices with whom we will align.

The polarity and contrast of the two simultaneous paths of choice summarize the current wakeup call and the opportunity to choose to face the consequences in our lives in a transformative way for the highest good. Remember, Pluto wants transformation at any cost. With Pluto in Capricorn, control and power can be equally used for the positive or the negative. This is the choice each of us must make.

The world will change when enough of us choose, on a personal level, to completely challenge the status quo and ask ourselves what true transformation and cooperation with others might look like.

In Summary

This Full Moon is a call to freedom and abundance, joining together and working with others for a positive outcome.

This Full Moon chart emphasizes a turning point. Our Full Moon astrology is full of optimism, but only if you are willing to face the consequences of your personal situation and actions.  Once you are willing to see the truth of the current situation, then the next step is to let go of limiting ideas of what is truly possible. From here you are able to transcend old limitations, let go of past ideas, and embrace the opportunity of new potentials. It’s time to believe in what is possible, to join together in prosperity and freedom, and to transform culture into something for everyone.

Regardless of what choice the collective makes, know that your personal choice can be one of cosmic optimism and new possibilities. This is where lasting change begins.

Happy Full Moon
