Sit a moment and find stillness. Connect with your higher mind- the voice that is both the Divine and your higher self. Invite them in. Listen. Neptune aspects thin the veil and make this reality seem less predictable. There is room to manifest, there is room to accept. Remain centered and keep a lightness of heart. No matter how badly something hits our ego, we can always let it go. In fact, as soon as we do, the pain subsides and the healing begins.
Sun squares Neptune and Venus will sextile the Ocean Sage on Sunday December 8th. Creativity, beauty and harmony are emphasized. Ego and heart confusion may be as well. A wise sage once said that “the cause of our sorrow is ego delusion.” This sums up the potentialities of the lessons that may arise from such aspects- being confronted with the delusions cast by our own ego- ego in the sense of the misrepresentation of our true selves.
Be gentle with yourself and embrace the challenge to change and transform. If the Sun is both our ego and our true light of spirit, this aspect may offer us opportunity to see more clearly the difference between the two, and simultaneously dissolve them back into one. IF, we have the courage to look and see where we need to let go. Take the inspiration here and apply it into your creative and spiritual goals.
Jupiter squares Chiron and Mercury trines the great mentor December 8th and 10th respectively. Old beliefs around healing may need to be released in order to make room for new perspectives. Where have we adopted beliefs from others- religion, authority, teachers, gurus, parents-that have actually been damaging to our sense of self?
If we take things on faith but do not see actual evidence of it being true, then we may be misguided or fooled. Sagittarius is the space of truth wrought from experience. Honor what you experience as truth, and accept the challenge from Chiron in Aries to fight for your right to think for yourself and manifest a world you want to live in by being the change.
Mercury is entering the sign of Sagittarius this week until the 28th, connecting our logical mind with higher law. This world operates according to law, called Natural Law or The Law by esoteric groups. It is upon the seeking and subsequent understanding of this law that we may master the navigation of this life to create the life we want.
Signs, symbols, stones, feathers- these are all a part of the language of the Divine. A language that may be more readable during Mercury’s stay in Sagittarius. This is the time to pay attention and dive deep into the topics you have been meaning to learn more about. The topics that feed your spirit, your passion. The things that turn you on and light you up- move towards them.
Jupiter, who rules Mercury’s new position, is in Capricorn helping us to ground higher wisdom into practical action. Saturn remember, is the ruler of the Golden Age according to Yuktiswar’s teaching on the great turning of the ages.
This is Saturn ruler of Capricorn and Aquarius, who holds the key to the mastery of this physical dimension. Will this dimension be a prison, or a liberation? The choice is ours. The secret teachings are all around us. Will we read from books or screens, or from the very lines of branching streams, which hold wisdom greater than any words.
The narrowing conjunction of Saturn and Pluto receive the kiss of love from Venus this month, first from her joining with Saturn on the 11th and then Pluto on the 13th. She brings heart power to the negotiating table. She asks for peace, harmony and balance. She reminds us that in spite of any perceived power or success, the love we make in this world through those things must not be forgone.
If success is at the expense of others and breeds contempt, it is not truly ours. And if our power takes power form others, it is stolen and not actually true power. The relationships that are worth the effort will be made clear at this time. Set your boundaries with love- be it fierce love or gentle.
The energy of the coming eclipse in Capricorn the day after Christmas is building now. The Cancer-Capricorn axis being highlighted all year has been deepening the need for ancestral healing and clearing in order to move into the New Age.
Throughout the remainder of this month we may become increasingly aware of how our patterns and blocks have been inherited through many generations of karma. Pay attention, the choice is ours which traditions to pass on, and which trauma it is time to heal and cease transferring.
If you feel called to engage with your own ancestral healing, the portals are opening to move karma that no longer serves and make room for a new culture to take root through the eclipse Dec 26th. There are many teachers who carry the wisdom of these ancient practices of honor and healing.
Seek this month the teachers and teachings that resound the great bell of truth within your chest. And always, if you wish to explore how this eclipse will affect you with yours truly, you know where to find me.
Blessings and Moondust,
