No Matter how you slice it today, it’s big with huge frequency hook ups! Mercury and Mars form the 1st of 2 stepping-stone squares early this morning, Mercury stations to begin his retrograde,Venus and Neptune form a stepping-stone square in the morning as well and the Sun conjoins powerful Pluto at 9:25 PM tonight.
On top of that the Moon goes Void for 11:48 AM and lasts until after midnight.
What on Earth does all that add up to?
Well 1st of all, it’s always what we make of it with our attitude and perceptions. The 1st 3 major aspects happen in the morning and then the Void slides into place, this is where we can go deep into discovering inner truths that will be more deeply established in our consciousness, during the Mercury retrograde that lasts until the 25th.
Mercury’s stepping-stone square to Mars (just before it goes retrograde) is a recalibration point for us to get our mind and body working more harmoniously together. Sometimes we have to get the message of how it’s not working… in order to get to what will work. If we listen diligently now… we can discover a lot. This is a time to receive a new way of looking at your body, your physical world and how your think, so open up.
Venus and Neptune will accentuate a capacity to bring in the ‘Higher Love’ and dissolve the illusion of the pains that cling from the past. It’s still more of the ‘Letting Go’ dance, except now, we are called upon to soften barriers we have built to a new degree. If you feel confused with a decision, let your heart ride out some time/space until it can agree.
The Sun/Pluto union tonight is a big transformer; an opportunity to reboot your sense of Self and recognize the power of who you really are and what you came here to do. Capricorn is very much linked to authority and your sense of your own. I repeat this because I just like it so much…
To be the author of your own life story, you must take charge of your own ‘life-script’ . Why let someone else write it for you? When you decide to take back your pen from an external authority and author your story yourself… magic happens. Self-Empowerment is Real!
Most of us are back to work today; the holidays are behind us and the new year is off and running. This week has it’s challenges and it’s easy moments, as they all do. The difference is that we have a sense of a new cycle, a fresh start. For many of us resolutions play a part in how we decide to start 2016, as the Sun begins to rise sooner every day and the days begin to lengthen.
For me, resolutions (historically) would set me up for a sense of falling short and disappointment in myself, as time went to by. So now, I just expect Change, I plan on it.. while I focus on trusting myself and loving myself more.
Trusting the path we are on, knowing the Universe is supportive of our growth and daily looking for inspiration… tapping into certainty that the Divine Plan is in Charge… dialing our perspective meter to an optimistic setting, applying appreciation and forgiveness where needed… these are the ways to navigate the New World.
Bullying ourselves into “doing it right”, or forcing ourselves to quit that thing we do that we know doesn’t work… just generates more resistance, self - condemnation and results in higher stress levels… it kills our Joy and it blocks our ability to hear the inner guidance of the Soul!
Today the Scorpio Moon makes supportive connections to Saturn, the Sun and Pluto. Utilize this energy to motivate you to change what you can (allow it, don’t force it) and see how many times can you tell yourself “I love You” today!
Tomorrow, Mercury forms a stepping stone with Mars and then stations to start his 1st retrograde of 2016, Venus and Neptune will form a stepping stone square and the Sun and Pluto will form a conjunction in the evening. Get ready for a new cycle of transformation!
Sunday the 3rd
Mars leaves the fires of Sagittarius and dives into the deep waters of Scorpio today. The Moon shifts into Scorpio also at 1:37 PM CDT and they will conjoin at 1:52 PM. Passions run deep and private personal time becomes more important, as Scorpio thrives on introspection and research.
There is a hint of a future theme playing out today, as Mars will retrograde in April and once again, bubble in Scorpio for May, June, and July. Mars retrogrades once every 2 1/2 years and Mars is all about our energy, physical body and how we take action.
Pay attention to your motivations today and any messages that your body sends you and that now can help positively effect your physical experience that manifests this Summer.
Two messages for today
1. Asking for help is not a sign of weakness; taking small steps to accomplish something, while being patient and kind to yourself. will progress the situation in a positive way.
2. We all have a built inner guidance mechanism that will steer us away from trouble and into right action. We do have to get still enough to hear it. The inner guidance does NOT come from the busy monkey mind.
Practicing consistently ... breathing deep and tuning into that still place where guidance resides, will result in our ability to hear it all the time (it is a knowing). Then it is a conscious choice of weather we follow it or not.
Have a wonderful Weekend !!!
Welcome to 2016!
Today is 1.1.2016, which equals an 11 in numerology. So this first day of 2016 has an extra kick of power and new beginning's are seeded within it... Beyond the normal January 1st. 2016 is also a nine year and that represents lots of completions, clutter clearing and more releasing, as 2017 will be a 1 and a brand-new 9 year cycle.
So it's very important that we realize we are still deep with in the process of completions, reviewing and releasing, so pacing ourselves through this year with lots of Self Love will be very important.
With the Moon in Libra for the next two days, we have an opportunity to look at our world with peace in our hearts; we must look past the turmoil and look within. Working to create a sense of balance is a constant -in the present moment task and today is a excellent opportunity to set the tone for the entire year in a positive way.
Between now and the fifth, all the planets are in direct motion, except for Eris... So let's all use this window of forward motion to reaffirm that love wins over fear and that our perception of reality is always being mirrored back to us. Don't waste this time with fear based negative thinking!
We as individuals can create a peaceful external world when we have mastered peace within ourselves, it's an inside ongoing job that never ceases. And it is a gift, it is a miracle really! Learning to walk this talk is my challenge and my dream.
I encourage all of us today to take some moments during this 1:1 Stargate...to reach deep in our hearts for the highest vision we can call forth for this completion year (2016 equals 9).
Mercury will go retrograde on the fifth until 25 January. As he begins that journey in Aquarius, the retrograde will swiftly return him to Capricorn, for the duration of the review, giving us another opportunity to refine and realign our thinking and communications based on our inner authority guidance.
May your 1st day of 2016 be filled with love and an appreciation for the gift of life.
