New Moon in Scorpio: Dancing with our Shadows

On October 30th, 2016 we collectively move into the hypnotic energy of the New Moon in Scorpio.

As we evoke the energy of Scorpio we dare to enter the realm of mystery, of shadow, of monsters under the bed [or more precisely hidden within our psyche.] We face that which lurks beneath the surface and enter the realm of the energies that move there. These energies normally exist below the level of conscious detection, but during this time we have VIP access to that secret world within.

As we dance with Scorpio we enter the realm of the taboo – of sex, death and the occult. We witness the instinctual nature of our behavior – the leaning toward that which brings us pleasure and recoiling from that which brings us pain. We miss nothing. We probe deeply into ourselves and even more deeply into other people – sensing underlying motives, maneuvers, and tactics that we might miss during other times. We feel everything. We see everything. We repress nothing. No elephants in the living room allowed here.

Scorpio invites us to explore the realm of the deep emotional energies that are exchanged in the container created between soul mates.  Note that soul mates come in many different shapes and sizes - this is not limited only to lovers – best friends can be soul mates too, but there is certainly a highlight on the arena of deeply bonded committed relationship and the sacred sexual energy exchanged there.

This is not a time for light connection. This is a time for intense entanglement and the willingness to process and explore what comes up within our consciousness as we bravely stare into the clear mirrors that our partners hold for us.

This is a time for stark honesty. A time for exchanges that are not about words – but about energetics. Are you willing to get into the cauldron with your soulmate and close the lid? The place where we say to one another “I am willing to experience the direct encounter with your energy body – I am willing to experience the lash of your unresolved wounds and I vow that I will help you through anything – in fact I will feel through this darkness with you until the light touches our faces again.” There are so many places within our deep consciousness that we can never know without the cathartic impact of soulmates upon us and this is prime time to undertake that relational deep dive. Feel the chills, feel the depth, feel the intensity. Above all else during this time allow yourself to feel.

The scorpionic urge is to penetrate – to penetrate beneath the façade, to penetrate through the walls and barriers that fear tries to impose - this energy urges us to look so deeply into ourselves and one another that there is no corner left hidden in the shadows.

We find the courage to peek into the dark and honor what is found there – we seek to know ourselves, the good the bad and the ugly – all of it, nothing left unseen. In this process we rip away layers of confusion, delusion, idealism, and falsity in order to reveal the deepest essence of our being. This is a time for deep soul healing.

As we navigate these charged emotional waters it is important to remember that YOU are not your emotions, you HAVE emotions. You are the container. You are the witness. Be careful of the tendency to over identify with heightened emotional states or interpersonal dramas that may emerge. Instead, remember that feelings are temporary and they are present to be honored as a very precise guidance system that you’re being given the opportunity to utilize and hone.

Follow your emotional signals as if they are heat-seeking missiles intended to lead you directly into clarity, right action, natural partnership, healing and freedom. This is no light work, so hold your breath, dive deep and know that when you re-emerge you will be strengthened beyond measure with access to the type of ancient wisdom that only lives within those who dare to brave the dark.

Full Moon in Sagittarius May 21st, 2016 - Asking the BIG questions!

On May 21st, 2016 we collectively step into the energy of the Full Moon in Sagittarius
 
Imagine the mythic Gypsy and the Philosopher pondering the BIG questions – these archetypes evoke the Sagittarian spirit - The gypsy soul who desires adventure, surprise, and that which is unexpected; even if the unexpected leads to a certain amount of chaos…but, what does the gypsy do with chaos?
 
The gypsy laughs with the chaos, loves with the chaos, rolls with the chaos, as if the chaos itself is the fuel for a life of excitement! What would life be without surprise? What would life be without adventure and connection with other generous open hearted spirits?
 
During this time harness your inner gypsy spirit. Throw chance to the wind and ride the wave of your life with bliss. Have FAITH that each person and situation that enters your experience is there for your ultimate pleasure and evolution. Feel the generosity and light heartedness in this energy...those are the gifts of Sagittarius!
 
And then there is the scholarly and philosophical piece to this energy, encouraging our minds and intuitions to expand. We ponder the big questions and seek to find the answers. Why are we here? What does it mean to be human? Where do we go after we die? When will we find life on other planets and what will that mean for humanity?
 
As the philosopher we lay on our backs late at night staring up into the galaxy far away, our minds attempting to stretch around the vastness that is this incredible Universe wondering what our place is in it. Engage with this philosophical quality that lives inside you.
 
There is so much to discover when we all THINK BIG adding our own unique perspective. During this time we are to learn and connect with the truth that we are inside of, part of, the embodiment of something much grander then we imagined as children – we are realizing that we are the Universe itself, experiencing itself, through our conscious self-awareness. Do you feel your mind and heart expanding? Feel your intuitive body stretching as your mind wraps around these larger questions and ideas. It is that place of expansion that we aim to harness during this Sagittarian time.

This Full Moon is conjunct the planet Mars, the God of War, adding some extra fire power to the mix. With Mars involved there may be some combativeness, conflict or competition that arises, so recognize that it is important to stand your ground, assert your needs and maintain healthy boundaries. You are worthy and deserving of incredible abundance in this lifetime, and at times it is necessary to claim that for yourself with a certain level of courage and ferocity.
 
This energy is about the quest for knowledge, the quest for adventure, the quest for faith in something larger than ourselves and connection to one another. When we recognize our unity and grandness from this philosophical point of view we can all become more generous, more loving, more kind and more playful!
 
We can stop taking ourselves so seriously and recognize that play is just as important as work. Take this time to go on real adventures with other gypsy souls who want to connect and ponder the vastness of the Universe and the interconnectedness of all things with a heavy sprinkle of laughter, fun and light hearted expansion.  Have faith that we live in a meaningful Universe, where miracles abound, and that all is happening to serve the greatest good - for in the end we are all supported.
 
Take this time to enjoy the ride!
