The Grand Cross and The Matrix — Venus opposing Uranus Squaring Pluto and Jupiter 2013

Grand Cross 2013 Venus opposing Uranus squaring Pluto and Jupiter
Grand Cross 2013 Venus opposing Uranus squaring Pluto and Jupiter

The astrological alignment of four planets in astrology called The Grand Cross  (to my mind) is like one of the final scenes in the movie trilogy THE MATRIX.

Venus is opposing Uranus and squaring Jupiter which is opposing Pluto, so squaring both!

What does it mean when Venus engages with all these big player planets?

Relating with others intensifies!

One way or another and it’s building right now, it  looks like  some things (likely issues involving money, power, freedom and control in relationships) are going to get challenged, squared away and hopefully resolved over the next few weeks in people’s personal lives.

More specific you say?  It could be like this:  faith and beliefs (Jupiter) squares freedom and liberation (Uranus).

And your values (Venus) are challenged so that Transformation on some level (Pluto) happens.

You already feel it, you must!  What is a hot issue in your life right now?

Something around that gets sacrificed on your personal Grand Cross over these next few weeks.

Some thing or some one is going to be released for your evolutionary benefit!  So that PEACE can be achieved.

When I think of the Grand Cross configuration in astrology, I always think of that final scene in the Matrix wherein Neo, THE ONE, is asked “What do you want?” and he answers, “Peace”.

That’s how I understand the purpose of a Grand Cross!

For each of us the energy of the next few weeks will play out differently but it will involve the archetype of Venus in some way and how Venus is placed in your birth chart as well as the Nodes of the Moon (karmic past and evolutionary intent of your soul).  The various Venus energy archetypes include:  love, relationships, values, money to name a few and the other archetypes of the signs and houses it rules (2nd, 7th, Taurus, Libra).

Hang on snoopy; the next few weeks could get interesting!

Day #28 Substituting Hope and Trust When Any Fear Emotions Bubble Up – What I Was Doing when Venus Transited the Sun

Alright!  We’ve landed on Day #28.  Something really big is going to happen (if all goes as planned–and it will~!) on Day #37.  So there’s 9 more days to go and its a bit difficult to be patient now.  That’s probably my own fault for being too much of an overachiever which really stems from fear-ish like paranoia that goes this way:  Hurry and don’t put things off in case at the last-minute something happens and you run out of time or some other type of energy!  

I was that way in college too–always had my assignments done and ready to hand in ahead of time.  And then when the professor gave time extensions because others weren’t ready, the temptation to be righteous about it was hard to resist.  Anyway, better to be early rather than late–ask my family; I’d always get to the plane or train hours early.  Hurry up and wait–that’s me.  You too?  Well that’s just how some of us are wired; embrace the neurosis.  As phobias go, there are worse ones to have I suppose.

Yet, I am still feeling a bit of that feeling from Day #22… you know, the protective roof being removed yet do see the prediction from a week ago about quick and steady progress has indeed been manifesting!  This past weekend my daughter and I worked harmoniously together to the tune of gearing up the final stages of things–she was a great help to me. 

I am finding that I am letting go of a way of life that I’ve held for 9 years on one level and about 14 years on another and it totally feels like a new phase, a new chapter–the page has been turned!  I am saying goodbye to the old and piecing together in my mind what the new will be like and how I will use my time in new ways.  I think it’s good that these final 9 days are ones in which I can gradually slow down, look around and inventory the whole affair. 

It is strange in a way because what I am doing is something that I never thought I’d do–ever really, ever!  And that is because I thought that if I did make this change and agree to the committment that it would feel terribly sad–NOT!  And that NOT really does mystify me sometimes.  It just shows me that when the time is right and the stars are in alignment (and mine ARE; but I’ll spare you the details but to say my natal lunar nodes in the 4 and 10 astro houses are merging with the transiting nodes this year and my 4th house Jupiter in Scorpio is opposing transiting Jupiter from the 10th.  Let’s not even talk about my progressed Sun just moved into my 5th House!) 

That parenthesis above mean nothing to do if you don’t know astrology and I apologize since I did not spare you the details.  Yeah, so anyway… 9 more days and an old part of my life goes bye-bye and a brand new adventure begins! 

I’m getting some hints about what’s coming–people are asking me to teach astrology and I’ve been thinking about it all at the same time.  It’s only Wednesday and already 4 people have asked me about teaching an astrology class.  I hesitate thinking I don’t know enough, but then  again I do know a bit more than a brand-new beginner would and those types would be my target students I suppose. 

I intend to teach an in-person local psychic development class–and now I am mental-izing how to follow through with these ideas.  I’d love to interact in person with students–the Internet class is fine but I’m open to expanding that and these are ideas ruminating in the mind right now.  We’ll see how it goes but this is how my psyche and spirit work it seems–people start asking me to do what I’ve been thinking of doing and so that becomes like the validating push.  Does it work that way for you too?

Right–so anyway after having recovered from some physical fatigue and spent short segments of time staring at the ceiling over the past weekend it was like two steps forward and one step back.  I seem to have to integrate it during a rest phase and then get back at it again as I work toward Day #37. 

At the start of this sudden project and  committment toward a major change, I didn’t know if it would take 30 days or 60.  Things have been moving quickly as I’ve said all along.  Any periodic apprehension is being handled by me through intense devotional prayer work to which I find that something happens shortly after to soothe any of that by giving some supportive validation–something encouraging happens to smooth over any worry wrinkles.  Bad for the complexion as well as the soul–those are!

VENUS crosses the SUNNot much more to report about it all but to say when Venus was doing her transit over the Sun which started from 6 pm EDT  last night I happened to be dealing with my check book, bank balances, bill payments and the like!  Didn’t think of that until today but Venus does rule the 2nd house which is often associated with “money”.  I don’t know what conclusion to draw from that really.  So what!  Right?  Yet as Venus came between the Sun and Earth we all must have received some sort of energy programming or the like.  Since my mind was, at that time, on $money$ issues, perhaps I was receptive to some positive programming from Venus energy as it relates to my essence, which for all of us is our Sun.  I do recall lecturing to myself as I began the task of looking at the money situation.  I told my self that I will not become in any way upset about money as I worked on the task!  And I meant it!  And I didn’t!

With my progressed Sun moving into the 5th house related to “children”, my relationship with my own daughters is strengthening and this grow more so each day.  Perhaps the Venus-Sun transit will help to continue to renew those loving relationships in the days ahead.

I’ve a client calling for a session and a busy afternoon ahead… I am asking to remain busy over the next 9 days so that I can forget the time to experience it quickly!

Meanwhile, each day I find that I am substituting any experiences of fear as they come up in the emotional body with trust and hope.  It becomes easier to do so despite anything else that should appear, regardless of what it is. 

Onward and upward as they say!

 
When you consciously embrace an experience of fear while shifting your vibration into trust or hope, you evolve! expand! enlighten! You GO!

Daily Divination 6-14-11 Receive the clues to your purpose on Earth—here’s how NOW! The Moon, Pisces, Full Moon in Sagittarius Lunar Eclipse

Receive the clues to your purpose on Earth—here’s how NOW! The Moon, Pisces, Full Moon in Sagittarius Lunar Eclipse

The Moon! Spiritual and physical evolution is the focus of today’s divination message.

How interesting to have drawn this card just the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse is upon us.

The Moon opposes the Sun now challenging us to determine our own truth verses the lies we tell ourselves—in the form of denial.

Are we being in spiritual integrity?

The archetype of this card is Pisces, the unconscious mind—some say Pisces represents universal mind. But either way, the Moon is about the shadow—parts of ourselves that contain motivations and fears of which we either deny or of which we are unaware.

The Moon card of Tarot represents forces that shape our livesforces that are greater than own thoughts which guide our evolution. And these are the feeling and emotional forces that are responded to from our ego or personality selves.

Full Moon times are great times to meditate. We can, through the help of the higher energies that it is possible to access during meditation, view our emotions and feelings without getting lost in them.

Moon energy represents what is within the subconscious and the unconscious parts of ourselves–the shadow or hidden material.  In astrological terms we would say 12th house stuff–that’s how Pisces gets the association with the The Moon Card.  Pisces,ruled by Neptune, is the natural archetype of the 12th house.

It is said that during Full Moon times, plants go into a deep meditation. It’s a time for spiritual retreat and the plant kingdom seems to know that. That sounds like Native American folklore and whether there is any scientific proof of that, I don’t know; but I’ve heard that before. I suspect it may have something to do with moisture levels and the ocean tides due to gravity shifts but don’t quote me on that—it’s my own speculation.

What I can say, however,  is that many times I get what I call “Full Moon Headaches” during certain Full Moon times and many memories that I’d thought I’d forgotten surface from the subconscious during Full Moon’s.

It seems like the deeper levels of mind are easier to access during powerful Full Moons and this is why its a good time to meditate—you may tap into memories and insights better then.

Dealing with the past and issues or aspects of our lives where we are in fear, denial or struggling with an illusion or delusion are often exposed during Full Moons.

The element of water is associated with the Moon and emotion.  Water, water everywhere!  The Moon card is associated with Pisces which is a water sign and the Moon itself is ruled by Cancer, another water sign.  Thus, the strong emotional correlations by water.

And the obviously increased emotional states during Full Moon times are no secret to anyone dealing with the general public—as you know, hospital workers and police force personnel tell us about it all the time.

If anything needs to be released from the subconscious, it is more easily achieved during times of the Full Moon.  But, this “ain’t” no normal Full Moon–as they speak in the south.  This is a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon…

LUNAR FULL MOON ECLIPSE

The message for today is that this Full Moon in Sagittarius time is right upon us! And as I have been blogging about for the last week, it is triggering the opposition from the Sun (of course—that’s what a Full Moon means) in Gemini.   I’m stating the obvious; here’s something more direct:

So, we may be challenged to determine what we believe, what our personal truth ‘is’, and we may be challenged to express or communicate (Gemini) that truth in a way that is evolutionary or in new ways, different ways than in the past. 

Why so? Because, this Full Moon is triggering each of us in a way that is working with our own personal soul’s karmic past and evolutionary intent.

Why? Because the Moon/Sun opposition is sitting on the transiting Nodes of the Moon themselves! 

 (The transiting/moving North Node and South Nodes of the Moon represent our evolving soul’s past and future.)

Whatever is happening in your life now and in the next few days especially is going to give you clues as to your life purpose—what you are here to heal and where your soul intends to evolve.

It would be good to pay attention to challenges and insights that are part of your life right now.

That is, if you want to know the answer to those universal questions: Why am I here? What is my purpose?

You will get major clues to that through dreams and meditations and plain ole’ life experiences right now.

Whatever is going on in your life right now – it’s one huge clue to be applied as an answer to those life purpose types of questions.

As this Full Moon is also a Lunar Eclipse, so there will likely be some new imprints on the soul that occur at this time.

Eclipse energy is known to impact our destiny—it can be a time to make a new covenant with the universe.

When the Earth passes between the Sun and the Moon (like it’s about to do now), we have a Lunar Eclipse and again, the Sun is in Gemini and the Moon is in Sag and through the open window of an eclipse, information can pass through into the soul and the soul can release energy out as well. Energies are released and received and in this case the energy has to do with the archetypal energies of Gemini and Sagittarius (truth versus lies).

The Earth is in the middle of the Sun and Moon and these two opposing Luminaries are creating a tug and pull within us—contractions, like giving birth to new energy.

The magnetic pull of the Sun and Moon eclipsing the Earth is strong enough to open the Earth’s sheath temporarily so that these energies can be received and released. Again, think of it like an open window, perhaps a portal.

Our beliefs (Sag) will be changed and the way we communicate (Gemini) those will also be affected. And in whatever way that happens for you personally, you will be able to put 2 + 2 together to understand what your own soul is trying to achieve so that you can work in harmony with it, instead of against it.

BOTTOM LINE: stop and look at your life now, today, and tomorrow and over the next 3 or 4 days. (I probably should say 3 or 4 months too–for the effects of an eclipse affect us for months afterward.)

Observe and correlate. If you are one who asks questions like, Why am I here? What am I supposed to be “learning” or doing? What is my purpose? You’re getting some great big hints right about NOW!

All you really have to do is observe and correlate what is happening in your own life right now. What issues are being triggered for you? What are you having to pay attention to? How is the theme of Gemini/Sag playing out for you now? (truth versus lies)

Whatever that is, it’s connected to what you are doing here and how your soul is trying to resolve, grow and evolve– just notice.

I’m out of time for today, see you tomorrow…

Daily Divination 6-12-11 Cycles of Life – Lunar Full Moon Eclipse – Wheel of Fortune – Jupiter

The forces of nature! The Wheel of Fortune—which is in astrology terms, Jupiter! The cycles of our lives, the turning points and the change and moving back to “center” where there is stability and spiritual nourishment—that’s the focus of today’s cosmic communiqué.

This Wheel of Fortune card is appropriate for the current astrological weather—a Lunar Eclipse full Moon in Sagittarius is approaching (the 15th) triggering the transiting Lunar Nodes in Gemini/Sag and we will all be visiting the truth (Jupiter/Sag) versus lies (Mercury/Gemini) energy in our lives and our communication methods may receive some restructuring.

The Wheel of Fortune card reminds us that our lives are affected by cycles and those can be seen clearly in astrology. It is important that we remain centered when these cycles are occurring and when we are being imprinted with new energy, which happens during eclipse seasons, like now.

The message for today involves having trust and faith in the adjusting power of the universe and to keep open to the energy of Jupiter, the right brain and intuition. A good affirmation for today would go something like,

 “I accept the changing cycles of life that the Universe brings and reaffirm and anchor to the ‘center’ within me to allow the changes to occur gracefully. I use my intuition and right brain faculties to balance my left brain logical thinking in order to remain balanced and at peace.”

Even though our life may feel like it is doing a turn around, it is an opportunity to become more aware and to realize how everything connects in ways that greater perspectives can be gained. While we have free will to set our own path in life to a certain extent, we do experience twists of fate and larger cycles that affect us, despite our best efforts. At these times, we feel clear that there is a greater power in charge of our lives and to surrender to that can help us realized that there is a bigger picture (Jupiter). When we surrender our will to a more Divine Will and/or acknowledge a greater plan is at work in our lives which we simply cannot control it is humbling, and at the same time it can also be gratifying.

Standing back and seeing the larger perspective (Jupiter) is what today’s message is about. The amount of surprise or resistance that we experience now is an indication of how well we are surrendering to The Divine energy of life.

The only certainty to life is change and—as above, so below—we can see that literally if we study astrology.

In the difficulties of life is where we grow if we work in harmony with change.

There is freedom to make choices in life but these are within the confines of the workings of fate or the soul’s plan—and we can get glimpses of that plan in a natal birth chart.

If this is a particularly good time for you, the works of your past are probably being enjoyed right now. If you are experiencing a down time, ride the cycle and go with the flow and try to work with it, seeing the bigger picture.

Good or bad is a judgment, life will always be cyclical in nature—up’s and down’s; it’s all relative. And nothing lasts forever, life IS change; so hang in there!  If this is a challenging time for you, the good news is that it will pass. Do what you can to turn the perceived misfortune to fortune by seeing the bigger picture (Jupiter) and c;ll on your intuition to help you bring balance.

I love that this card comes up today just as we are approaching the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius, ruled by Jupiter.

The approaching Full Moon will be sitting right on the transiting North Node that is in Jupiter ruled Sagittarius. The eclipse is activating these issues of truth versus lies and issues of seeing the big picture. The Wheel of Fortune card today is calling to our attention the current and upcoming astrological influences.  What is truth? Is it black and white?  The Gemini part of this eclipse wants it to be.  But the truth is relative and we must integrate all we’ve learned thus far in order to be able to really realize that.

Eclipses always trigger emotions and with the transiting nodes involved, what’s going on involves communications regarding truth vs. lies because the transiting nodes are in Gemini/Sag.

Final thought:  not everyone has to agree with your truth in order for you to feel emotionally okay.
