The Consequences of Inner Freedom
Aquarian Age Update
This journal follows humanity’s entrance into the new Golden Age of Humanity, also known as the Aquarian Age. Pluto’s entry into Aquarius on March 23, 2023 marked the next major phase of our transition into our new era. This journal will continue to keep you updated on the Aquarian Age through the energies at each New and Full Moon.
Pluto Approaches Aquarius
Pluto is set to enter Aquarius on January 20, 2024. As this moment quickly approaches, we anticipate with excitement the positive changes that will correspond with this event. This shift back into Aquarius is re-activating an elevation of frequency on our planet, an event which initially occurred on March 23, 2023, but this time, we’ll experience it much differently than before.
It’s important to review the changes and opportunities that will be coming our way. Significant changes will swiftly unfold, ushering in new opportunities daily. In the Aquarian Age, navigating these significant transitions wisely can lead to creating inspiring and transformative experiences.
The energies that we’ll be experiencing when Pluto activates the first degree of Aquarius are truly amazing. It’s becoming more clear that our current realm is splitting apart into two major realms: one of light, and one of dark. This is a bifurcation of energetics in two opposite directions. This is why we say it’s a shift to a higher frequency of light; we’re calling it a dimensional shift for now.
As light beings we naturally love and resonate with the higher frequencies of light. This is why the contrast between the light and dark is becoming so apparent to us all.
Scorpio New Moon: Inner Freedom
Each New Moon heralds the onset of a transformative ability or process that holds the potential to elevate
individuals to a higher frequency of light. When fully embraced, this process accelerates one’s journey along the spiritual path, often referred to as ascension or the awakening.
The new process introduced at our Scorpio New Moon supports a profound authenticity and inner freedom. These energies are empowering us with the inner authority to make choices in perfect harmony with our spirit.
The Sabian archetype for 21° Scorpio illustrates how personal integrity and inner freedom manifest, even within an authoritarian system. This scenario absolutely resonates with the world in which we find ourselves today.
☉/☽ — 21° SCORPIO — OBEYING HIS CONSCIENCE, A SOLDIER RESISTS ORDERS
THEME: INNER FREEDOM
ARCHETYPE: A readiness to face the consequences of a refusal to follow the authoritarian patterns of a divisive world view.
COMMENTARY: Embracing the inner freedom that comes with being a true individual grants one the emotional strength to carve out a personal path and confront the consequences of principled actions, even against the backdrop of authoritarian systems. When external authority is wielded to coerce and intimidate, it falters before those who possess a profound sense of personal integrity through an established inner authority.
Inner freedom embodies the quintessence of individuality, allowing one’s character to access the depths of authenticity. This ability to access the depths of authenticity is a prominent Scorpio quality. Within the Scorpio archetype, emotional resilience is drawn from one’s established inner authority. This explains why authoritarianism cannot ultimately triumph when individuals have the strength to follow their own authority. Our spirit, fortified by this inner authority and the accompanying inner freedom, asserts the sovereignty of personal choice.
Uranus: The Transformative Power of Peace
A quick look at our chart pattern shows Uranus as a front-runner in the counter-clockwise motion around the zodiac. With Uranus as the planetary ruler of the Aquarius, and by extension the Aquarian Age, along with the New Moon we have additional positive energies to draw upon.
The Sabian archetype for Uranus at 22° Taurus is a clear indicator of the quality of peace energy that’s available to anyone who wishes to draw from the higher frequency that Uranus has to offer.
♅ — 22° TAURUS — A WHITE DOVE FLYING OVER TROUBLED WATERS
THEME: THE REWARD OF PEACE ENERGY
ARCHETYPE: The inspiration of spirit that descends in the form of perfect peace energy, then soars above any crisis or temporary circumstance.
COMMENTARY: The dove is a perfect symbol of the creativity of our spirit which enables us to successfully rise above any crisis or emotional upheaval through the experience of perfect peace. When we engage our spirit we can respond to life with the spaciousness of peace, in which there is more room for spirit to descend. In every challenge or crisis, the neutrality and peace energy of spirit is available as a reward to all. In this way, the inner space for spirit opens up like the wings of a dove.
We are living in turbulent times. This archetype offers hope, comfort, and peace, with the inner knowing that whatever we experience, spirit has an ability to creatively respond. With the energies of Uranus activating this Sabian, the potential for peace in our lives is strongly supported.
The shadow of Uranus lies in its volatility. Volatility is often necessary, however, to allow the shaking loose of stagnant energies that aren’t aligned with our ascension process. The upside of volatility lies in the transformational process. As higher frequencies come into this dimension we have to release what’s not working so we can align with the higher energies of the earth.
The dove emerges here as an emblem of triumph, epitomizing the serene resolution one attains after navigating through a crisis or emotional turmoil. The descent of the dove represents our ability to invoke our spirit in challenging times, allowing us in every moment to cultivate a spacious peace within.
This tranquil expansiveness provides the room needed for our spirit to alight and thrive within. Even in turbulent scenarios neutrality and peace energy remain accessible to everyone. The spirit’s reprieve is akin to the dove’s wings opening, offering a sanctuary of calm above life’s troubled waters.
The Scorpio New Moon ushers in a period of profound inner freedom and authenticity, providing individuals with the inner authority to align their choices with their spirit and personal path of ascension. The Sabian symbol for 21° Scorpio highlights the strength of personal integrity that enables us to transcend oppressive systems. Our true inner authority can resist external coercion and uphold the sovereignty of personal choice.
Uranus’s influence in the Aquarian Age promises peace, symbolized by the image of a white dove flying over troubled waters. This reflects our the ability to rise above all forms of crisis with a peaceful spirit. This archetype offers hope and a serene response, reminding us that in times of turmoil the solution of peace energy becomes available when we create space for our spirit to thrive.
