The Gypsy, The Philosopher And The Teacher

June 15, 2019

The Full Moon In Sagittarius

Seeking an esoteric deeper meaning of the moment through a deep driving hunger for adventure. Building a philosophy which inspires the teacher to teach.

The optimistic expansive energy of Sagittarius, journeys through, in the midst of turmoil and madness which then gets recycled and is then used as a flowing fuel in order to reach an understanding of the meaning of it all.

Transforming mystery into sacred knowledge.

Speaking philosophy as the poetry of principles, viewpoints and ideas.

When the Moon is Full, brightly lit through its opposite position to the Sun, there is a culmination taking place by the very nature of the dynamic of the 180 degree angle formed.

This Full Moon shall conjunct Jupiter in Sagittarius, which opposes the Sun in Gemini. A buoyant sense of expansion fills us with hope and optimism even as things around us appear dark and foreboding. This Full Moon acts as a wish fulfilling gem beckoning us towards an awareness of our deepest desires. Desires and needs translated into thoughts. Thoughts into words which then become comprehensible as ideas. Ideas which are able to be made manifest as a visceral blossoming of dreams into reality.

The power of this Full Moon is so, because of the mutable, malleable energy of Sagittarius and Gemini which triggers an intuitive need to seek meaning.

The meaning of this moment then gets to be translated into logic which nourishes as it feeds the mind. The final vestige of the influence of Gemini as this Gemini Sun season makes itself ready to ingress into Cancer. This time can emerge as a deeply felt impulse from your heart and soul.

A phenomena, as it transpires even amidst the cardinal opposition of Mars to Saturn and Pluto. This certainly can prove to be a powerful moment of transformation and transitions towards healthy individuation as Mars which triggers our instinctual need to survive opposes the traditional structural constructs and ideas of which Saturn indicates along with its potential towards an epoch life changing potent conjunction with Pluto, aka, “the demolition crew”. Wrecking and reeking havoc towards that which is withering into decay.

That which must die supported to do so via the transformative energy of Pluto. All in service of making way for the gestation of a relevant life affirming flexible humanitarian structure to be designed and reestablished.

The good news is that eventually when Saturn moves into its own sign of Aquarius in late 2020, the concept of true humanity can be acknowledged as a valid and necessary experience for life in all of its being and resourcefulness to unfold.

So take heart as this challenging moment too shall pass.

Breathe and be present, with gratitude, if you will.

As we are living at a transformative time of challenging moments with powerful power plays amidst boulders of challenges which are challenging us to truth or dare.

A leap of faith kind of moment.

“Nothing lights a fire like a dream deferred” kind of moment.

With all of its frustrations, challenges and boulders, this moment colored by this Full Moon energy invites you to remember that the point of power is always in the present moment.

So to be here now.

Peace.

Hello Temple Of The Mind!

May 28, 2019

The New Moon In Gemini

Ambivalence becomes an energizing experience inspiring us to get organized. Empowering us to transmit and receive information. Becoming the messenger. The purveyor of communications.

    Such is the effective use of the energy of the New Moon In Gemini.

    Although not really the most comfortable, soothing, nurturing Zodiac sign for the Moon to be moving through, I suggest that through the practice of being fully present using the tools of mindful meditation and the mercy of loving kindness, the scintillating sparkling wings of Mercury can brighten, lighten and even add some zing to your life.

    Gemini, being an air and mind oriented sign ruled by the planet Mercury stimulates our journey by arousing our curiosity.

    It triggers our hunger to seek the gleaning of knowledge and information. Assorted trivia and anecdotes, to be stored away. To be called upon at some later date.

    Gemini ruled by the planet Mercury, is about the function of listening to and transmitting information, knowledge, fictitious stories and tales of adventures. Relating via communication. To discern information in order to register the data and file it away. The motivation and intention is to pass it on to others or to refer to it for oneself.

The symbol of Gemini is The Twins.

The essence and nature of duality.

This experience of duality serves to guide us towards a repertoire of references that upholds the constructs which orientates us to our experience of the world and our relationship to it. In this regard, the Twins can be seen as two strong pillars holding up the weight of the Temple for the purpose and necessity of keeping together the structure itself. The Temple here being used as a metaphor for the mind. The mind which when aligned in a healthy way serves as the navigational go-between from our Soul to our brain, which is then organized by our ego, in the psychological sense of the word.

Gemini Moon ambassadors in the beginning cycle of Gemini which ushers in a busy time, resplendent with ample social and traveling opportunities.

However do keep in mind that this Moon In Gemini moment accentuates the significant basic need to listen, respond and to be fully present and aware.

One of the important teachings of Gemini and Mercury is to focus.

Begin by becoming aware of your breath.

Then breathing in become aware of what your heart desires.

Exhale deeply, allowing the flow of your breath to transmit the feeling of this desire to your mind, the Mercurial part of your psyche.

Become aware of receiving a thought, an image or just some kind of felt sense which your mind as the messenger is beginning to transmit to you.

Reflect on it so you can translate it.

Then from there you move forward.

To manifest

To create

Gemini encourages you to focus, focus, focus…and to keep on!

Full Moon in Scorpio

May 18, 2019

Critical mass made manifest as more questions pop up seeking answers.

Pressure to meet goals opposed by the challenge of delays.

For Scorpio, there is a kind of adrenalin rush that is created through craftily seeking solutions that transforms challenges into the rebirth of new ideas and opportunities.

Scorpio knows the igniting fire of truth can set you free. Awareness and knowledge of this wisdom has a calming effect as the Sun in Taurus get ready to ingress into the sign of Gemini on May, 21st.

This Full Moon at 27 degrees Scorpio holds the energy of resolution, being at the tail end of Scorpio’s three fold journey. The brightness of the glow of this Scorpio Full Moon is the spark that lights the fire of transformation through which the Phoenix triumphantly rises up out of its own ashes. With renewed vitality, brightness and faith as it sparkles towards ingress to Sagittarius.

A playful social time ahead…..

But first this moment of energized moon lit brightness being centered within the depths of feeling as only Moon in Scorpio could.

The Sabian symbol for twenty-seven degrees Scorpio was channeled as ” A MiLITARY BAND MARCHES NOISILY ON THROUGH THE CITY STREETS.” This Scorpio Moon comes to completion with pomp and arrogance. The tense noise of domineering Western “civilization” in defense of its waning relevance seeks to stealthily establish its identity. The image expressed indicates a defensive stance. A moment of vulnerability whose terrified and fearful response to change is to shut down. With shut down heart, shut down connection to humanity, to then march on, like an automaton. Unaware of how pernicious it becomes as it opposes its own call to life through its own instinctual nature.

It brings to mind a resonance and indication of how this transit of Pluto conjunct Saturn in Capricorn is being made manifest. Every draconian law, every criminal act committed against country, society and humanity is a manifestation of holding on to old irrelevant structures. The influential power of Pluto, ruler of Scorpio is knocking these outworn structures down. Trusting that this moment while filling many of us with angst and pain is the time of clearing out decaying structures by allowing us to see how destructive they are. This then serves to make room for healthy sustainable relevant and life affirming new structures.

(The key is to stay awake and aware. To listen and to say.)

Reflect on your own life now and how you might be working your will to uphold a tradition, habit or routine to no avail. Let it go for in all likelihood it is Pluto/ Saturn transiting that part of your life. Use this time then to release and let go of that which no longer serves you. Then allow yourself the adventure of living into what does.

Enjoy this wild and wonderful moment of your life.

“Planting your feet good and solid on the ground,

Being willing to have it be so,

Because by being aware of the worst and perhaps even accepting it,

We then have everything to gain to improve upon”

Money Matters And Planet Earth

May 7, 2019

New Moon In Taurus

The exchange of energy enacted within the fluidity of money.

Compelling is the experience of having or not having it, which is one of the ways alliances are formed. This need for goods and services is what connects us to each other.

The earthy sign Taurus is very much about money, values, stability and self esteem.

Venus, the ruling planet of the sign Taurus seeks the higher ground of acquisition as a way to develop stability and more.

Through the knowledge of how we ourselves hold power gives clarity that helps us to focus on what really matters. In this way, we can set up a practical plan on how to get what we need.

The issue of money, finance, self esteem and self worth matters. Self worth and the way it constitutes stability gets played out through issues around money, etc. There is an ability to form and sustain healthy relationships when the Taurus connection to Venus serves to foster profound connection within the ability to sustain work that is meaningful.

Planets in Taurus when placed prominently in a chart or forms powerful aspects to other points and planets in the chart, presents opportunities towards growth in the direction of loving oneself realistically and respectfully. Sometimes nothing could be more focusing and stabilizing as the power of a finite set of reality based situations that requires our perseverance, discipline, practice and patience.

The Moon as a nurturing soulful place of unconditional love gets played out through personal subjective experience. This is indicated by the sign and house placement of the Moon within one’s birth chart. The Moon in Taurus may be expressed through steady good work, good stable finances which allows for sublime sensual pleasure or the beauty and elegance of sustained simplicity.

This New Moon In Taurus offers guidance towards steady consistency in order to practice and persevere so as to become successful. This is a good time to reflect on life experiences in practical matters as it serves you in some practical way. How to get from point A to point B can flow more easily into our minds when we connect with this soulful sense of being. To use the Taurean energy to become aware of what matters. I suggest that this is good time to reflect and meditate on things of that nature that touch and soothe your Soul. Give yourself a moment to write, journal, draw or treasure map that which you want to affirm and create for this Taurean season.

”As the river runs wild through the canyons,

So does Peace run wild through your Soul

For no matter what stands tall around you,

Deep within,

You are free,

You are whole.”

—Herban Harper Nilhult—

Peace.

A Question Of Balance

April 19, 2019

The effects of the Libra/ Aries dynamic in the midst of catalytic transits

Seeking balance and beauty,

Peace and harmony,

Amidst uncertainty and instability as a result of conflict and fury.

Libra, the Seventh house along with Planet Venus indicate areas concerning marriage and business partnerships.

The relevance of finance and money has proven that the energy of money and the reality of it’s significance and its flow into and out of our lives seems to reflect as it can also indicate the way in which people interact with each other.

Libra is seeking balance through justice, fairness and in service of the integrity of the law. Libra is in opposition to the sign Aries on the Wheel so that there is a compelling tension between them both. It is magnetic how the stress and tension of this opposition in actuality constellates the chemistry of attraction which is at the heart of love and relationship.

This dynamic can be felt much more apparently at this moment what with Saturn and Pluto transiting in Capricorn. Almost acting like an allegorical volcano or earthquake or perhaps both. The suggestion I will say is for us to take things in stride. To go slow and breathe deep so we can find the higher ground as our Inner Guidance is guiding us to do.

At this writing the Moon has left its degree of fullness of 29 degrees Libra, then went v/c and is now 3 degrees Scorpio. The Sabian symbol for 3 degrees Scorpio is ; ” A house-raising party in a small village enlists the neighbors’ cooperation.” I read this to be expressing that at this powerful transformational “collective” hour, as the one that we are in now, perhaps this symbol offers a hopeful humanizing healing insight. That when we reach out and help build something as grand as a new home even and especially when it is not necessarily our own, that the metaphor indicated by the Sabian symbol is that there is a need for reflecting on a renewed sense of reality that ultimately serves to open up minds and hearts. This serves to bring into consciousness the reality of how we are interconnected as well as how we are also quite separate albeit quite whole as free individuals.

I believe this particular Full Moon in Libra is the beginning of an expansion of our social and interpersonal consciousness. A consciousness towards an experience of cooperation. The Aries Sun, Libra Moon dynamic is the current yet fleeting symbolic validation of the eternal need for interconnection with our partners that continuously forces us to learn to love, lust, come together and break apart so we can come together in such a way that enriches our understanding and compassion of self and other.

Perhaps this passage in time is a doorway through to some such understanding. For then out through the merciless madness of pathological narcissism, which is I believe to be one of the most destructive antiquated structures of all time could benefit from the unapologetic destructive power of this Saturn/Pluto transit time. The birth of a new paradigm so a healthier society can come into being.

When Venus and Mars are doing their dance, I am always hopeful!

Keep On To keep Moving On

New Moon In Aries

The Dance Of Aries

The New Moon in Aries should supply you with some high octane energy to propel you forward so you can effectively accomplish whatever you are setting your mind on to do.

Willpower and a deep driven instinct to survive is the quality that the Aries Sun and Moon offers.

Fearless and creative.

Bombastic and critical. Aries is known to “go where Angels fear to tread”.

This can be a very good thing when it’s focused and tempered with intelligence, wit and heart. The Ram which is the symbol of Aries as it rams on towards some sort of affinity for humanity. Leaving its soulfully creative mark of a cool clever creative impulse. A passion for life, for justice and a respectful abiding of laws what with the Libre influence which is its diametric opposite.

Aries thrives in conflict and battle. Ruled by Mars, known as the God Of War. Aries people can have a kind of Don Quixote sort of energetic need which metaphorically can propel them to battle windmills or seek some sort of conflict, that is if no other battle or conflict is at hand.

This moment indicates a birthing moment within our collective consciousness as this dark, gestating New Moon is for a moment conjunct Uranus in Taurus. A birthing moment of a commitment to innovative creations of new structures that support a sustainable thriving renewed community and culture.

At this time of this New Moon it is the moment to focus on what you want to create for yourself. The New Moon in its movement forward, still in shadow as her waxing begins is the moment of gestation. The glimmer of nurturing creation.

Let your creative life affirming affirmation begin with the knowledge and trust that it is all a mysterious adventure about to unfold in its own way. Let the dance of your life continue to unfold.

And it will.

I Know It’s Aries But…..

Spring Again Part 2

In part it feels like Pisces.

With its spacey, mysticism.

With its slowing of the flow that serves to bring about a nebulous yet well patterned rhythm.

With its working in its foggy mystical way serving to transform the way in which time is perceived and arranged.

Seeming to be walking through an ocean or a river just to get to the simple everyday mundane things that just must get done.

I see this experience as one of the gifts of this moment. As Mercury is in Pisces conjunct Neptune in Pisces, the communication from this mystical combo is to help us become cognizant that if we surrender to it, rather than insist on working our will, or worst succumb to feeling like a failure cause we can’t accomplish the thing we are seeking to do. But rather to surrender and let it go. To follow the flow the spirit is moving you towards. While at the same time staying focused on your intention. As you open up to letting go while at the same time remaining focused on your task at hand, you will find that you are actually being led towards an elevated new rhythm in which to find a better way of flowing through your daily routines, your work, your life.

Mercury has gone direct albeit still in the midst of Pisces. Take heart for Pisces shall reach the blooming bright energy of Aries around mid April. This transition from Pisces energy to Aries, from Winter into Spring, with its vital and invigorating pulsations of life can seem to be a bit chaotic and create a certain amount of resistance in moving projects and intentions forward. Even as the Sun is in Aries now. Always the transition of Pisces to Aries is a powerful yet subtle nuanced birthing process.

It is useful to remember that Mercury is an Air Planet which indicates a propensity of mental and tactile qualities. Mercury can therefore act misty and dreamy in Pisces compounded currently with being conjunct to Neptune the Planetary ruler of Pisces. Getting things done requires much more focus, forgiveness and compassion than usual.

Take heart for the beneficial news is that with the Sun now traveling through Aries and Mercury to soon follow suit, we shall be able to truly feel the return of life force and energy sparking your power and will. Feel the awakening from Winter into Spring as the driving fire and fury of the Ram and Planet Mars with its Springtime inspiration gives the focus needed to set goals and with the self instructors sharp and tender love in the form of Planet Saturn, strengthening us to consistently keep at them. Eventually all will all be well synchronized into an awesome symphony of your life flowing creatively towards your fulfilling moment.

Always remember that as the beauty of Pisces rocks and rolls on as only Neptune and Pisces with its artistry in harmony of music can do, keep on, keep on, keep on, keep on.

Happy Spring Everybody!
