New Moon Update 3-30-14

Dear Friends,

New Moon is Sunday, March 30 at 12:45 PM MDT (Mountain Daylight Time).

This is a powerful time that launches an opportunity to step up and step out of the box of business as usual and into a realm of higher mind, higher heart, and higher consciousness. This is an opportunity to access the state of higher centers and experience a preview of what’s coming in mid April. Any ritual you can do that will take you out of your usual mode of operation and into the realm of altered states with a deeper access to the world of spirit would be very helpful.

Watch for things that may go upside down, unexpected decisions and choices of others that affect you in some way. Stay neutral and in gratitude for the great change that the unexpected brings. This is a time to bid for power. What do you want? Speak it, voice it, put it out there to the universe and trust that the universe will listen. For the 6 hours or so after the new moon’s exact time, be very aware of staying present and away from conflict and negativity. If you find yourself with negative thoughts or judgments especially during this time, be disciplined about turning them towards thoughts of beauty, well-being and joy. Connect with your essence, align with your essence and send your ego on vacation.

New Moon in Aries

Sun in Aries~Moon in Aries 10º

Sunday, March 30, 12:45 PM Mountain DT

(March 30, 6:44 PM Greenwich Mean Time)

We have crossed the threshold of Equinox and begin anew at every level. Entering the realm of Aries is embarking on the hero’s journey of finding our Selves. In the first sign of the zodiac ruled by the fire, desire and heat of the red planet Mars, we seek our individual identity and long to differentiate into the great ‘I AM’. In these times of intense evolvement of conscious awareness and expansion of our interaction with the invisible worlds, the hero’s/heroine’s journey is the Spiritual Warrior’s quest to find their own divine nature within. It’s an individual path; we learn to be with the Self; we come to our own self-love and realization that we are the sons and daughters of Spirit. We are the love, intelligence, beauty, abundance, creativity and vitality that Spirit is. It takes the yearning, innocence, boldness and headstrong independence of a cardinal, fire sign like Aries to fuel such a powerful journey.

We are making preparation now to enter a rarified portal in mid to late April that will be encapsulated by two eclipses:

First, a total eclipse of the Full Moon on April 15

Then, an annular/partial eclipse of the Sun on April 29

Within this eclipse package will occur the fifth and most powerful of the seven exact squares of Pluto and Uranus. Since 2012, we have experienced twice-yearly exact squares of Pluto and Uranus ratcheting up the revelations of what needs transforming (Pluto) in the internal and external structures of our lives. Much work has been done. Uranus provides the impetus to awaken, seek the ideal, and champion the rights of each individual and all humanity as we offer up and revere our sacred, eccentric individuality.

This fifth square alignment in 2014 is unique. Since last summer, Jupiter in Cancer has entered the Pluto/Uranus alignment to form a T-Square – opposing Pluto and squaring Uranus. (T-squares are full of tension, but produce dynamic experience to produce giant leaps forward). Jupiter serves to expand and increase everything with which it comes in contact. We feel the added intensity of feminine, emotional creativity (thanks to Cancer’s influence) where we learn to magnetize what we want to create in our lives by out picturing into the quantum field with love and positive energy what we desire to receive from Spirit and the universe. We had many unprecedented months in the summer 2013 in a prolonged Grand Trine configuration of Neptune, Saturn and Jupiter in all three water signs to help us learn and refine this skill of how to create at a higher frequency level. Jupiter formed a linking bridge between both the Grand Trine and the T-Square helping us to visualize at a collective level the kind of world we want to create as the Earth is able to hold more Divine consciousness and Feminine empowerment bringing needed balance to our beloved, home planet.

In the mid April eclipse window, a fourth planet, Mars, comes into play turning the three-sided T-Square into a four sided Grand Square or Grand Cross (same thing). All planets are exact at 13º of cardinal signs (Aires/Libra, Cancer/Capricorn). Imagine a four-way stop sign intersection where four super-charged vehicles arrive at the same instant. It’s a lock in; a tremendous amount of energy is contained here. There’s the potential for power bullying or cooperative acknowledgement and respect. Each can leave with anger pulsing through the veins or an inner smile for having participated in a dance to reframe competitiveness and aggression. Well, maybe it’s a lame metaphor, but nonetheless these three powerhouse planets (Pluto, Uranus, Jupiter) when they come to lock in with Mars over the four-day period of April 20-23 within the eclipse window will hold the potential of HUGE radical shift. It’s a test of all that has gone before, what will we do with what we have learned, what do we want to manifest with the power we are given, can we handle it with integrity and maturity? Will our power leak out in tantrum behavior or be manifested in creative, radical ways we couldn’t even imagine before. Most decidedly, NOW is the time to make your preparation for this powerful influx of energy.

Historically, many major, collective planetary shift events have occurred when Pluto and Uranus come into powerful aspect as we are now experiencing. These are not influences of just a few days but of a usual 10-year period surrounding exactitude. Events like the French and American revolutions of the 1700’s and Latin American revolutions of the 1800’s, the Great Depression, the radical 1960’s are characterized by tension, violence and struggle as we grow and evolve, as well as tremendous breakthroughs in technology, social political movements, and artistic/sexual expression, and all these exalted times and more are related to the square, opposition or conjunction of Pluto/Uranus and are well documented in Richard Tarnas’ book, Cosmos and Psyche, 2006.

I want to leave you with an example of reframing what we are experiencing that came my way recently. Here is a passage written by my friend Gina Covina, chronicling her contact with the spirit of Fukushima radiation (a very Pluto/Uranian force currently at play on our planet!):

Like all elemental beings, the Fukushima radiation can be directed by humans through the coherent energy of love. Unlike wind or rain, it was brought into its present volatile form by human activity, so it appears especially responsive to our direction. How lonely is it to be greeted privately by abject fear and publicly by a massive news blackout? How confusing, to be defined as destructive, to be held outside the pattern of meaning that all life weaves. When we greet the radiation in love and welcome, it responds. It is immediately ready for our direction. We ask it to make changes in our DNA that support the rapid evolution in consciousness necessary at this time. We ask it to break the locks on the long-unused DNA sequences that have kept us from conscious communication with all that lives, that have kept us from knowing who we are. We invite it to be an active part of the coherence of love as it moves through all life forms. This greeting is a first step, an introduction. Powerful transformation is possible – of the ongoing nuclear event itself and of all life – as we collectively step up into conscious awareness of our responsibilities and abilities. Together we can do it, and together is the only way we can do it.

We are fully equipped for our mission! Our toolboxes are filled; our hearts resonate with truth, love and energy; we stand together rooted in Mother Earth and protected and guided by Father Sky. Bring it on!
