CURRENT MOON

  

Cancer New Moon

June 23, 2017

10:30 P.M., EDT

Washington, D.C.


Our approaching New Moon shall inhabit the sign Cancer; the sign of baths and bathing, the domestic environment and domestic life, gardens and gardeners. The first water sign of the Tropical Zodiac rules the masses, melons and milk, the Ocean, pearls and poppies, white roses, selenite and springs of water as well as swimming, tides and all matters connected with water. As with all astrological actions, look to the precise residence of the Lunation in your personal astrological arrangement and the aspects created to the points in your chart, to understand how you can execute these New Moon possibilities into your personal realities.

The coming together of the Sun and Moon is located at almost 3 degrees of Cancer and within 3 degrees of the amalgamation, we have Mercury in Cancer at almost 6 degrees. For this New Moon, I am inspired to elaborate on our heightened awareness of the necessity, especially during these times of a profound advance toward higher Spiritual Awareness, to create a home environment that vibrates the energy of a Sacred Space, Sanctuary, Temple. The 3 days that lead to the New Moon, beginning with the phase of the Moon known as the “Balsamic Moon” on June 20, 2017 at 6:12 p.m. EDT, is a most advantageous period for clearing, cleansing and purging anything unnecessary, so that we might begin the ensuing Lunar cycle with a clean slate. In the days leading to the New Moon, we are inspired by Spirit to reflect on the condition of our home location and to clear away anything that might create heavy energy, imbalances and disruptions in our dwelling space as well as whatever might interFEAR with a natural flow of energy, as it is understood in the Chinese art of Feng Shui.

As I have in the past, I recommend reading “Spiritual Clearings” by Diana Burney to assist you with clearing your own personal energy as well as to aid you in cleansing the energy of your physical home.

In the New Moon chart cast for the United States, the Sun and Moon unification resides in the 5th house of the composition. The “natural ruler” of the 5th house is the Sun, and the energy of the Sun connects us with Creativity and Divinity. It is ideal for each of us to recognize our connection with Divinity and create a dwelling space that reverberates this high vibrational element.

It was the Prophet Kahil Gibran who mused, “Your House is your larger body,” and all energy that comes to form in our homes is a direct reflection of the energy of all those who occupy the space. Our Home is the place for us to retreat, rejuvenate, reconnect with Spirit, as well as a setting for us to nourish our loved ones. If your home is not reflective of these virtues, see this time as a Blessed opportunity to correct any imbalance in your home environment.

Mars is transiting the sign of Cancer until July 20, 2017–when it then moves into Leo–and 3 days after the New Moon, will form an exact, beautiful and harmonic trine (120 degree) energy aspect to Neptune in Pisces. The energy of this Mars/Neptune connection is prevalent at the New Moon and creates the opportunity to “channel” high-vibrational energy from Spirit so that we might receive Inspiration and guidance as to what needs to be remedied in our homes space, as well as encode these high-vibrational frequencies into the home! The element of “healing energy” is also heightened with the Mars/Neptune alignment, so this energy is multifaceted in that we might use it to “heal” any imbalances in our home, as well as within ourselves.

Another suggestion is to incorporate the element and energy of our Earth in our Homes with plants such as focus trees, minerals and natural crystals throughout the home, the placement of sea salt thought the home at various locations in the home is also an element to keep the energy in the home balanced. There are many suggestions as to what we might bring into the home to establish and create a sanctuary: recognize what elements resonate with you, and use these elements for your specific Sacred Sanctuary!

In the New Moon chart cast for the United States, Aquarius is rising at the onset of the new lunar cycle. This is the sign most associated with change, revolution, awakenings as well as the “New Age.” In my last “Full Moon Forecast,” I emphasized the elevation of “chaos” in our outer world. On this New Moon, let us choose to recognize how, when WE ALLOW ourselves to be grounded within ourselves by being rooted to the energy of the Earth, regardless of how much turmoil comes to form in the outer world, the elements of the outer world shall never interFEAR with our well being! This is another gentle reminder for each of us to “Be in the World, and not of it.”

Finally, Venus, the planet most associated with Beauty, traveling through the sign it rules, Taurus, is connected to the 4th house in the New Moon chart. The 4th house in the astrological composition is the natural residence of the sign Cancer, and is the sector of the chart that represents the home. Another virtue to ingrain in your home at this time is the ingredient of beauty! We are in the season where much beauty is demonstrating itself with the blossoming of so many plants and flowers, and what greater way to bring this beauty into your home than with the incorporation of the most natural elements!

The Summer Solstice takes place 2 days before the New Moon on June 21, 2017 at 12:25 a.m., EDT, and at the moment of the Summer Solstice, we have Pisces, as well as Neptune rising in the solstice sonata. Pisces and its ruler Neptune are the 2 elements most associated with Spirituality as well as Higher Vibrational Spiritual Knowing. With the imminent Eclipse Season this August, we are accelerating at lighting speed toward the Knowing of our Higher Spiritual self. Some may feel the ascension process of this Spiritual Awakening profoundly accentuated during the months of July and specifically August. So that we might receive the most advantageous blessings during these pivotal times of Spiritual growth, Spirit inspires us first to remedy any energetic imbalance within ourselves, clear our aura field, then progress toward clearing the energy of our home to create that Sacred Sanctuary where you may dwell in Light and peacefulness of Divinity.

Blessed Be and Be Blessed.

Build of your imaginings a bower in the wilderness ere you build a house within the city walls. For even as you have homecomings in your twilight, so has the wanderer in you, the ever distant and alone. Your house is your larger body. It grows in the sun and sleeps in the stillness of the night; and it is not dreamless. Does not your house dream? and dreaming, leave the city for grove or hill-top? ~Kahil Gibran



Gemini New Moon

May 25, 2017

3:45 P.M., EDT

Washington, D.C.


Our impending New Moon resides in the sign Gemini; the sign of books and bookcases, all means of communication and crystals. Gemini governs dexterity and duality, short journeys and kindred relatives, memory, memorizing, mental inclinations and mentality. The first air sign of the Tropical Zodiac represents nerves and nervous energy, rumors, stories and storytelling as well as twins, versatility, writers and writing.

Always assess the exact location of the Lunation in your personal astrological chart and the aspects it creates to the points in your chart to better understand how you can set in motion these New Moon potentials into your reality.

The Sun and Moon fusion is located at almost 5 degrees of Gemini, and in the New Moon chart cast for the United States, the Sun and Moon amalgamation resides in the 8th house of the Astrological configuration. One of the most profound potentials of the 8th house is that it is the house of transformation and regeneration. With our New Moon in the sign most associated with our thoughts and the thought process, we, especially “We The People,” will profoundly benefit from ALLOWING ourselves the rebirth of thoughts and the thought process toward Higher Vibrational, Humanitarian knowing.

If “We The People” of the United States desire to experience great and profound change that will serve the highest good for all concerned–this great transformation is the BLESSING that we are being offered–WE must FIRST change our thoughts, individually, and correct any imbalance within ourselves. Only then, by proxy, will the entirety of our country, not to mention the whole of Humanity, experience balance, harmony and peace within and among itself.

As I wrote in my recent Full Moon Forecast, “This month of May 2017 represents the ‘mid point’ between the 2 eclipse seasons of February 2017 and August 2017.” Our New Moon now prepares us to embrace the pivotal changes that will unfold with the coming energies of the Total Solar Eclipse of August 21, 2017, whose “path” will move directly through the United States, further emphasizing that our country is undergoing a period of profound transformation. The event also underscores that as “We The People” continue to empower ourselves, the we, individually, shall benefit from these revolutionary changes.

The Blessings that will unfold as we progress through the summer season will be the most hallowed of experiences that will offer each of us personally, and then collectively, the opportunity to know our Creative and Evolutionary Divinity! This knowing of our Higher Self will allow each of us to create all that we desire, and to not rely on anyone or anything to fulfill any aspiration! At this writing, I encourage everyone who reads these words to empower themselves with the knowing of their personal creative, evolutionary authority, which begins with the inspiration of intention, and continues with the power of our thoughts.

To additionally emphasize this element of transformation as we progress through these profound times for “We The People,” in the chart cast for the New Moon for the United States, we have Libra rising on the horizon. The rising sign, or first house in a country’s astrological chart, represents “We The People. The planetary ruler of Libra is Venus, and in the New Moon chart for the United States, Venus forms a very powerful, creative and dynamic square (90-degree) energy aspect to “The Great Transformer,” Pluto! This alignment also suggests that our close personal relationships are undergoing their own pivotal transformations so that, if we specifically are in partnerships, be it personal or professional, these partnerships will also be adequately prepared for the coming times!

Jupiter is close to “rising” in the U.S. New Moon chart and is within 3 degrees of connecting with the Libra ascendant. Neptune in Pisces, in this chart, forms a powerfully transformative inconjunct (150-degree) aspect to Jupiter. Neptune in this New Moon chart is connected to the 6th house, which among many elements, represents healthcare and physical well being. To further emphasize the understanding of how our thoughts create all conditions of our Human experience, at this New Moon, we are offered the opportunity to further reflect on how lower vibrational thinking creates imbalances in the physical body and be receptive to guidance from Spirit as to how, personally, we must correct any imbalance. Another element of this alignment with Jupiter to Neptune is that we are undergoing a great, “Spiritual Transformation” within our thoughts and higher beleifs.

A facet of the “Great Disclosure” unfolding in our country is how “We The People” have been misled about how we must create balance in the physical body as well as a balance with our “mental health.” From the Metaphysical and Spiritual standpoint, there is no such thing as a “mental” imbalance; all imbalances occur when there is an extreme interFEARance from the Spirit Realm with the physical form. To anyone who would seeks greater knowing of this subject, I suggest reading “Remarkable Healings” by Dr. Shakuntala Modi. This highly progressive and unconventional material reviews how a psychiatrist discovered the unsuspected roots of “mental” and physical illness!

Embrace the energies of this New Moon in the sign most associated with thoughts and the “mental” faculties to review the mental health, which shall reflect your own spiritual experience, and receive greater knowing as to how, for you, any imbalance may be corrected so that you might experience Joy, Harmony and Peace.

An additional higher vibrational element to incorporate into our daily spiritual demonstrations is Nature and the Natural World, specifically, the “Healing” properties of Nature. Libra is the sign most associated with the Natural Kingdom, and just as Nature will innately create a balance where there is imbalance, we as Human Beings contain the same potential–when we ALLOW ourselves to recognize this facet of our Being.

Dr. Wayne Dyer once exclaimed, “Change your thoughts, change your life,” and if we allow ourselves to do so, we shall fully embrace the Blessings of the coming months, that shall offer each of us personally the opportunity to connect with and then demonstrate our greatest potential. And, when we allow ourselves to recognize and then demonstrate our greatest capabilities, we are embracing our own personal “Destiny” and it is in that Destiny that we raise our personal vibration, heal ourselves and then raise the vibration and heal all of Humanity.

Blessed Be and Be Blessed.

Taurus New Moon

April 26, 2017

8:17 A.M., EDT

Washington, D.C.


Our forthcoming New Moon resides in the sign Taurus; the sign of April, Italy, art dealers and artists of all kinds, pastel colors, dancers, pianos, music and musicians. Taurus governs finance, money, money lenders, profits, securities and wallets! The Sun and Moon union is at 6 degrees of Taurus. As always, look to the precise residency of the Lunation in your personal astrological composition and the aspects it creates to assimilate a higher knowing of how you may implement these planetary potentials.

The New Moon chart cast for the United States places the Sun and Moon in the 12th house, the sector of the astrological composition that represents, among many elements, the subconscious mind. I emphasis the subconscious mind aspect of the 12th house at this New Moon as we are continuing to travel through a Mercury retrograde period. (Note: Mercury will remain retrograde until May 3, 2017.) I have emphasized in many times past that a Mercury Retrograde period is a time to “go within” and REflect, REview, and REconnect with the “Source” that created all things to assist you on your Spiritual Journey.

At this New Moon, an empowering element to weave into our Human Experience is the detachment from our “worldly possessions” and “material slavery.” This Higher Knowing certainly does NOT suggest that we are to live without and in a perpetual condition of lack. Ironically, the more we detach ourselves and not “need” anything, the greater the opportunity from the Universe to deliver to us, and for us to attract, all that we are detaching from! Allow yourself to “go within,” using the discipline of Meditation, and reflect on your Beliefs about money as well as abundance in all things.

Remember, we may also “miscreate” abundance in the condition of lack! Always giving and never receiving also creates an imbalance, and when we allow ourselves to recognize that it is just as advantageous to receive as it may be to give, we “REwire” the energy of our Mind toward creating and REceiving the Blessings of all things.

This Higher Knowing of the element of abundance as our birthright is a higher frequency ingredient being crafted into all our consciousness. And, once again I would like to restate what I illustrated in my “2017 Early Forecast” regarding ABUNDANCE and the essence of President Trump’s Being while in office at this time:

“His [President Trump’s] persona reflects to us (U.S.) the physical manifestation of ABUNDANCE that each individual has the potential to CREATE through Desire that begins with Intention. Each one of us (U.S.) contains the potential to CREATE for ourselves the ABUNDANCE Mr. Trump has brought to form. Mr. Trump’s Natal Moon resides in the sign Sagittarius, the sign connecting with abundance.”

On April 15, Venus moved direct in its orbit, and similar to the Mercury Retrograde onset in Taurus, as well as this Lunation in Taurus with the emphasis on the 12th house, we have been in an extended period of review regarding our perceptions and misperceptions of the facet of abundance. If we have diligently dedicated the time for this review of our personal beliefs regarding abundance and then allowed ourselves to recognize the thought patterns that require renovation, we are setting the stage to experience a more beneficial manifestation of all we desire.

On April 20, 2017, Pluto, the “Great Transformer,” moves retrograde in its orbit and remains so until September 28, 2017. Power, more profoundly, the awareness of self-empowerment, is one of just a few of the high vibrational elements of this most often misunderstood astrological element. One of the many Blessings of a Pluto Retrograde is for us to REenergize our WILL POWER and reignite the “fire in our belly,” our DESIRE, so that we might acknowledge the presence of the POWER within ourselves that inspires each of us to know our ability to CREATE, and often MISCreate, all that we might choose to bring to form.

At this New Moon, Mercury conjoins Uranus with the first exact alignment on March 26, 2017 and the following precise amalgamations on April 28, 2017 and May 10, 2017. When Mercury, the planet of the Mind, adjoins with Uranus, its “Higher Octave,” we are offered a profound auspicious opportunity to think outside the box, receive abstract higher insights that lead to higher knowing, as well as vastly alternative insights as to the solution to any condition. This abstract information may be applied in assisting you in restructuring the aforementioned conditions of the mind if you are not creating the condition of monetary abundance that you desire.

The etheric energy generated from this combination may be highly “charged” and it does serve a greater purpose, so that we may use this opportunity effectively, to consciously remain grounded to the energy of the Earth. Uranus governs, among many other things, electricity. Consider the “ground pole” in an electrical socket, which keeps the electricity from surging and short circuiting the current. So that we are not “short circuited” we must be mindful, during meditation, to enforce the grounding element so to receive these abstract insights in a manner that will serve for you a higher and greater purpose.

Blessed Be and Be Blessed.

Aries New Moon

March 27, 2017

10:58 P.M., EDT

Washington, D.C.


Our approaching New Moon resides in the sign Aries; the sign of adventures and amethyst, enterprises and the Entrepreneur. Aries governs hairdressers, kilns, the mouth and ochre, poppies and rhubarb, sheep and white wolves. As with any lunation and planetary occurrence, look to its position in your individual astrological charts to gain a better understanding of how these energies will reveal themselves in your personal life.

The Sun and Moon fusion is at 7-and-a-half degrees of Aries; within 5 degrees of this union, we have Venus, who is retrograde until April 15, 2017, at 3 degrees of the sign of the Ram. New beginnings and entrepreneurship are two of the strongest facets of the sign Aries, and the challenge for this sign is follow through. One must become diligent to bring to fruition, through intention, all that has been set in motion!

Many times the “Aries personality” will offer its best intent, exclaim all that it desires to create, and then  “fall short” of implementing the aforesaid intentions. At this New Moon, allow yourself to recognize if there has been a endeavor “waiting in the wings” for you to birth. Now, at this New Moon, the time may be at hand for you to initiate and FOLLOW THROUGH with your intentions.

With the placement of the Venus retrograde in the sign of the Entrepreneur at this New Moon, we are offered the opportunity to look back, reconnect with and reflect on the endeavors (perhaps business ventures) that we have allowed ourselves the courage to implement and follow through. Venus represents, among many elements, one’s desires, and as it travels through the sign of the capitalist (Aries) while in? retrograde, we are offered the opportunity to reflect upon those endeavors that we may not have allowed ourselves the permission to embark upon and to release any fear that may interFEAR with our moving forward and bringing to form these desires.

Mercury and Uranus are in close proximity to one another–within 2 degrees of a conjunction–at this New Moon. This placement of Mercury in such close proximity to Uranus in the sign of the industrialist allows us the ability to “think outside the box” and receive CREATIVE and abstract information and ideas that will assist us in moving forward with the aforesaid desires and ventures.

Venus, the Sun, and Moon, along with Uranus and Mercury, all reside in the 5th house of the astrological chart cast for the United States. Among many elements, the 5th house, the house of Leo and the Sun, represents creativity. Our Sun is the Source of all nourishment for our Earth as well as for all of Humanity. At this New Moon, there is emphasis for the realization that all of Humanity, personally and collectively, is forever connected to that Source that CREATED all things. This Source and its Creative power is at our fingertips, if we choose to see this Blessing. If we were to ALLOW ourselves to welcome this Higher Knowing, we could recognize that we have entwined within the fiber of our Being, each facet of this Source. At this New Moon, allow yourself integrate this Higher Knowing into your consciousness.

Mars in Taurus forms a sextile (opportunity) aspect to Neptune at 12 degrees of Pisces. This alignment creates a heightened sensitivity to etheric energy and offers a highly favorable opportunity for those who embrace energy healing modalities such as Reiki. If you already are in the profession of energy healing, such as an already established Reiki Master, welcome this opportunity to advance in your abilities, as well as your full knowing of your Being as a Healer.

The second exact alignment of the Jupiter/Pluto square energy alignment will be on March 30, 2017. The first exact hit was on November 24, 2017. One of the highest vibrational opportunities of this alignment is for Humanity to allow itself to regenerate its beliefs and belief systems, especially if we are trapped in rigid and limited thinking that does not allow us to transcend the conventional “knowing” of the third dimensional world. When we ALLOW ourselves to move beyond the logical and limited thinking, we welcome abstract, higher possibilities and solutions to all that we seek, far greater than what our “Human hindered eyes” may allow us to see. This Higher Knowing will allow you to receive the information necessary to implement the aforesaid endeavors in a manner that will serve for you a greater purpose than you might recognize.

Blessed Be and Be Blessed.

Do the difficult things while they are easy and do the great things while they are small. A Journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.

Pisces New Moon

Solar Eclipse

February 26, 2017

9:59 A.M., EST

Washington, D.C.


Our impending New Moon resides in the sign Pisces; the sign of aquariums and asylums, clairvoyance, fountains and Holy Water as well as Judas, the Disciple of Christ, monasteries and monks, peace and the pacifist, psychics and seers, veils and water.

This New Moon is an Annular Solar Eclipse and keep in mind that the energies of an Eclipse can be felt up to 3 months prior to the actual Eclipse event and may remain influential for up to 6 months, and in some instances, even longer. The Sun and Moon union resides at 8 degrees of Pisces; assess the placement of the New Moon in your natal astrological chart and the aspects it creates to the points in your chart to implement these planetary potentialities on a more personal manner.

The energy of an Eclipse brings about monumental change and a redirecting of energy. At the moment of an Eclipse–either Lunar or Solar–there is a precise alignment of the Sun, Moon and Earth and when this alignment become exact, it creates an immense concentration of energy, similar to when we hold a magnifying glass in front of the Sun on a clear day at noon, and the beam of the sunlight’s energy is concentrated to a small dot.

Whether the collective of “We The People” in the United States choose to recognize the development or not, the U.S. (us) is at the beginning of a pivotal and powerful Spiritual Awakening that shall progressively unfold during the course of the next 9 years. The February 26, 2017 Solar Eclipse accentuates this paradigm shift in the collective of our thoughts here in the U.S., as well as on a personal level. The result will facilitate the Creative Evolution of our country, setting the precedent for all of Humanity. This benchmark must and will be created from a place of Love, and most emphatically without E.G.O. (Edge God Out).

The ongoing Jupiter/Uranus opposition “Full Moon” aspect, which shall continually unfold during this unprecedented auspicious year, is close to being exact at this Solar Eclipse. The next and second exact alignment will be on March 2, 2017. At the moment of the Solar Eclipse/New Moon, Mars is in EXACT alignment with Uranus and the union is opposed to Jupiter. The Mars/Uranus amalgamation resides in the 12th house of the Eclipse chart cast for the United States and this volatile alignment suggests, first, as we have become abundantly aware, the unsettlement of energy and chaos will continue as we progress thought these months. This experience is an agitation of energy that has settled very deep within the collective of the consciousness of the people of the United States, And, for the continuation of the Spiritual awakening unfolding here in the United States, there must first and foremost be a RELEASE of the negativity that resides in each individual. The error in judgments is that when the negativity and fear come to the surface, we misconstrue the experience, and instead of RELEASING the fear, which wants to interFEAR with our Awakening, we focus too much attention on the fear and indirectly REINFORCE the fear rather than RELEASING it!

The placement of Jupiter in the 6th house of the New Moon / Solar Eclipse chart cast for the U.S. offers the opportunity, on a personal and collective level, for an “AH HA” moment to the awakening of a higher purpose as well as our personal “service to Humanity.” Once we release the fear that wants to interFEAR with our personal growth and evolution, leading to the Awakening of our higher purpose and knowing, we begin to embrace our “Destiny.”

Combined into the Uranus/Mars and Jupiter equation, we have Pluto forming a 90-degree alignment to the Uranus/Mars connection and Jupiter. This combination forms a t-square energy aspect, which is highly combustible and volatile as well as CREATIVE and DYNAMIC. While we are somewhat vulnerable–if we ALLOW ourselves to be so–­to the planetary alignments, and when we direct our attention toward the HIGHER FREQENCY potential of any astrological offering (Creative and Dynamic elements) we OFFSET the impending negativity. Pluto resides in the 9th house of the Solar Eclipse which indicates that “We The People” are now radically and dramatically abandoning and dissolving those Beliefs that caused each one of us to remain in a place of logic, fear and limitation. This placement of Pluto intensely blasts away the energetic particles of low-frequency debris that interFEAR with our etheric connection to the Higher Mind and thus offers the opportunity to welcome and embrace higher knowing. The result is abstract, unlimited modalities of thinking, which facilitates greater awareness that leads to Knowing.

The New Moon/Solar Eclipse resides in the 3rd house of the natal chart of the United States. The 3rd house is the sector of the nativity that represents our thoughts, low-frequency and logical thinking–which, to our detriment, is limited–and the “mundane” thoughts, as well as erroneous judgments that vibrate in the atmosphere. Connecting with the Sun and Moon fusion we have the ruler of Pisces, Neptune, at 11 degrees of Pisces. This Lunation, as it resides in the sign that most profoundly illustrates Spirituality and all facets of Spiritualism–which has no connection to conventional “religion”–offers the collective of “We The People” the opportunity to incorporate a modality of thinking that contains at its helm, higher Spiritual awareness. Such awareness leads to the experience of “Knowing” that will benefit the highest good for the All of the All. In other words, the collective of “We The People,” as well as the entirety of Humanity, are to benefit from this shift toward higher, Spiritual (not Religious) modalities of thinking.

The Solar Eclipse/New Moon chart cast for the United States places a profound emphasis on the 11th house of the astrological composition. The 11th house is the house of Aquarius, and the placement of this Lunation in the most profound Humanitarian sector of the astrological configuration suggests that the “Dawning” of the Age Of Aquarius has begun; we are now offered the opportunity to implement this higher consciousness–a condition which has accelerated since 2008–into the all of Humanity, specifically here in the United States. The 11th house of the astrological wheel also represents our “Friends, Hopes and Wishes;” TRUST that at this time, a ‘higher vibrational’ realization of these Blessings are and will be bestowed upon you!

In these times of bombastic noise and cacophony droning in the ether, allow yourself, at the moment of the New Moon/Solar Eclipse, to be in a place of mediation and prayer, permit your mind to be quiet and still, and listen, not “hear,” what is shared with you from Spirit.

Blessed Be and Be Blessed

To the mind that is still, the whole Universe surrenders.

Aquarius New Moon

January 27, 2017

7:08 P.M., EST

Washington, D.C.


Our impending New Moon resides in the sign Aquarius; the sign of Astrology and Astrologers, frankincense, freethinking, freewill and friends. Aquarius governs The Holy Land, one’s hopes, idealism and the idealist. The final air sign of the Tropical Zodiac presides over paradoxes and parliaments, rebellion and reforms, social affairs, spiritual occurrences, the color violet and wishes. As with all Lunation and planetary activity, look to its exact position in your charts and the aspects created to understand how to implement these New Moon potentials into your reality!

Change–profound, prolific, revolutionary, progressive, Humanitarian and ideal–is at hand. We, specifically here in the United States, are living in unprecedented times. Some of the most powerful, empowering and progressive change that will usher in a “Golden Age,” as well as the “Age Of Aquarius,” is at hand. These highly progressive, abstract as well as unconventional experiences are unfolding as I write, and the end of some very dark and dismal times has begun. How quickly or laggardly the Blessings come to fruition is defined by the collective of Humanity. All that manifests in the outer world is simply a reflection of the collective energy, which radiates from the intentions, words and actions–thought, word, deed–of each individual person. The energy of Aquarius offers us the opportunity to recognize “We Are One,” that there is NO SEPARATION in our individuality from the collective of the Oneness of all of Creation. At this New Moon, each individual is being offered the opportunity to encode this Higher vibrational knowing into the individual consciousness. The result is that, by proxy, this higher frequency, Humanitarian element, will come to form, specifically over the next 9 years, to all of Humanity.

The Aquarius Sun and Moon merger reside in the 6th house of the New Moon chart cast for the United States, which represents “our service to Humanity.” When we allow ourselves to acknowledge our greatest potential, which connects us with our path and purpose, we bring to form that which reflects our “Destiny,” and this potential is indicative of our “service” to Humanity. One of the most insightful, personal understandings offered to Humanity, specifically since 2008, is recognition of our “calling,” and our greater part of the whole of Humanity. And, that Destiny, in whatever for we might recognize it to unfurl, is the opportunity in which we, individually, contribute to the profound changes at hand.

In the New Moon chart cast for the United States, the Sun and Moon come together at 8 degrees of Aquarius, and we have the sign Leo at 29 degrees, 48 minutes, rising in the astrological composition. The 29th degree of any sign is known as the “critical degree,” which offers the opportunity to embrace a progressive, powerful and sometimes radical shift toward a higher knowing that benefits the “highest good for all concerned.” At this Lunation, the 29th degree of Leo suggests we are at a time when the unbalanced manipulation of the E.G.O. (Edge God Out) is finally, collectively, being dissolved. The lower vibration of the E.G.O., which keeps us in FEAR and will always interFEAR with our well-being, no longer serves a greater, higher purpose and is potentially being dethroned. The higher frequency of the E.G.O. will always keep us personally and collectively in a place of Humility. All elements, even the E.G.O., will serve a higher purpose, when we direct our attention toward the higher-frequency probability of any component of Creation.

The Aquarius New Moon resides in the 2nd house of the Natal, Astrological chart of the United States. In my “2017 Early Forecast,” I wrote;

There will be a crumbling of the current banking system, and “big banks” will no longer have control over monies as well as the ability to control and manipulate each individual’s birthright to abundance! The United States will “return” to a system based on and backed by gold and silver, and the intrinsic “value” of our money will return. And, this cycle of experience may also suggest an end of physical “money” as we know it!

In the coming weeks, we may very well observe the beginning of this Higher Knowing coming to form. Also, the virtue of the knowing of Abundance, as our birthright, is yet another higher vibrational virtue, blossoming into our realities as we progress through the coming weeks.

On January 29, 2017, Mercury and Pluto come together at almost 18 degrees of Capricorn. This coming together, “New Moon” energy offers the opportunity to embrace and incorporate an “evolutionary,” abstract and unconventional modality of thinking. With the element of a sometimes combustive, square energy aspect formed from Uranus at the amalgamation of the two planets, we must dedicate care as to how this energy may come to form. We have already witnessed the unproductive, as well as destructive protests being demonstrated in our society, which confirms the lower, fruitless, uncreative frequency of this equation. A higher, creative and dynamic manifestation of the potentiality is to welcome abstract and evolutionary ideas and perception that transcend what is logical, which hold the potential for great, evolutionary and progressive change.

“And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.” ~Max Ehrmann, Desiderata.

Capricorn New Moon

December 29, 2016

1:54 A.M., EST

Washington, D.C.


Our looming New Moon resides in the sign Capricorn; the sign of abbeys and barren grounds, deliberation, fields, and government (including the progress and service of government). The final Earth sign of the Tropical Zodiac presides over jails and janitors, minerals and mountains, poplar trees and black poppies, pyramids, quarries, salt and watches. Look to the precise position of the New Moon in your individual astrological charts to understand how to best implement these energies into your experiences!

The Sun and Moon amalgamation resides at almost 8 degrees of Capricorn, and Mercury—who is retrograde until January 8, 2017 and is slightly over one-degree of a conjunction (New Moon aspect) with the Sun and Moon—is located at almost 7 degrees of Capricorn. Capricorn governs our goals, specifically our long-term goals, our highest achievements and our profession as well as all facets of government. Our current Mercury Retrograde presents the opportunity for us to dedicate some quiet, peaceful “downtime,” certainly with Meditation, so that we might reflect on our long-term goals and our current career/profession. If you are uncertain as to what is to be your career, benefit from this retrograde phase to “go within” and allow Spirit to “show you” what it is that might be your profession and more profoundly, your “Purpose,” and/or Path while in this embodiment. This Mercury retrograde phase is an optimum period to go within, meditate, pray, request enlightenment from Spirit and to bring clarity to uncertainty. If you are diligent in your efforts and intentions, once Mercury moves direct and is “full force” in its speed on January 28, you will achieve clarity about your greatest potentials, which are equally proportionate to your “purpose.” All of these components amplify the “Capricorn” energy and opportunities of this New Moon.

It is no “accident” that we are experiencing this retrograde phase at the end of an unprecedented year and beginning of a new year so that we might be abundantly CLEAR as to what we will choose to manifest in 2017. Spirit suggests we use this New Moon as the “start” of 2017 and not necessarily wait until January 1, 2017!

Neptune, who is at almost 10 degrees of Pisces, forms an opportunity sextile (60-degree) energy aspect to Mercury, the Sun and Moon. This benevolent energy crochets a high frequency, Spiritual element into all that we create and endeavor to attain. Also, guidance from Spirit is at hand, specifically through the employment of Meditation.

The Jupiter/Uranus opposition, (Full Moon energy aspect), is exact on December 26, and will come together again on March 2 and September 28, 2017. As I stated in my recent “Full Moon Forecast” regarding the Jupiter/Uranus cycle: This cycle of experience brings to form an expansion, awakening, understanding and “Knowing” of the unlimited potential of the higher mind and elevated levels of thinking that create and manifest a Human experience that is compassionate, kind, peaceful, harmonious and overall filled with Love.

In the United States, we may observe heightened conflicts between the establishments of Government and Religion…more so than in Holiday Seasons of the past. This experience offers each of us the opportunity, once again, to reflect on whatever Spiritual understanding is “right” for us, allow ourselves to live peacefully in that knowing, and allow the same Blessings to others, even when their beliefs are diametrically opposed to our own. Allowing another to freely “Be” in their own place of Knowing, and doing so for ourselves—free of self righteousness and judgment—will allow the greatest, high frequency transformation to unfold here in our country.

At this New Moon, as you set your intentions in motion for the manifestation of your higher, long-term goals, allow yourself to ingrain this sense of your “Higher knowing” and Humanitarianism into all that you are creating as what you know as your Spiritual path and higher purpose!

Blessed Be and Be Blessed.

Sagittarius New Moon

November 29, 2016

7:19 A.M., EST

Washington, D.C.


Our impending New Moon resides in the sign Sagittarius; the sign associated with aliens and altars, ceremonies, churches and clergymen, as well as the dreams we experience during sleep, faith, ideals, philanthropy and philosophy. The final Fire sign of the Tropical Zodiac governs prayers, praying and priests, Spirituality, theologians and wisdom. As always, look to where the New Moon resides in your personal astrological chart to attain a higher understanding of how to implement these planetary potentials into your consciousness.

The Sun and Moon merger resides at almost 8 degrees of Sagittarius, and in the New Moon chart cast for the United States we have Sagittarius ascending, further accentuating the Sagittarian principles and the potentialities of this New Moon in Sagittarius. This New Moon triggers the energy of the September 1, 2016 New Moon, Solar Eclipse (which resided at 9 degrees of Virgo), offering the opportunity to advance to the next level of whatever may have been activated for you at that time!

The most influential aspect to the Sun and Moon, as well as the Sagittarius ascendant in our New Moon chart, is generated from a sometimes volatile, yet creative and dynamic, square (90 degrees) energy aspect from Neptune in Pisces at 9 degrees. The “lower” vibrations of Neptune demonstrate confusion, delusion, distrust, “woolgathering,” betrayal, nebulousness, secret enemies and all that is hidden and that may cause an “undoing” of the self. The square energy aspect from Neptune may suggest the lower dynamic of the Neptune in Pisces potentialities may be demonstrated, particularly as Neptune resides in its ruling sign of Pisces.

However, when we approach the energy of Neptune from a higher, Spiritual vibration, we experience faith, trust, a sense of brotherhood with one another, clear discernment in all things as well as an overall sense of peaceful “Knowing.”

As with ANY planetary vibration, the final outcome of the potential is based on our FREE WILL, and this “birthright” will define how the ultimate scenario is brought to form! I emphatically recommend using these planetary energies for the highest good of all concerned and choosing to incorporate the higher vibarational energy of this New Moon.

The element of “self-righteousness” is another lower vibration of Neptune in Pisces, and since the outcome of the Presidential election here in the United States, we have observed overly aggressive demonstrations in the form of so many protests challenging the outcome of the election. This egregious misdirection of energy is the influence from a dark force which, in very subtle ways (Neptune), causes each person to become “distracted” from the blessings at hand so that we are “kept” in a low vibratory experience. With an acute sense of discernment and greater awareness, each individual has the ability to rise above this dark force—which began to be dissolved in 2014—and is why this energy has become so prevalent since that time. As this “dark force” continues to be destroyed, it will make a “last ditch effort” to retain its hold on Humanity—but only if we ALLOW it to do so!

At this New Moon, we are being offered the opportunity to clear the connection with the Higher Mind/Higher Self—two of the more elevated vibrations of Sagittarius—and to deeply RECOGNIZE all the Inspiration we are being given from Spirit through this etheric connection with the Higher Mind. When we face the presence of an influence that may distort all that we interpret, we must make a conscious effort not to be befuddled by its oppressive power during these last stages of all that has been misleading Humanity. We must become that much more diligent in being grounded, specifically to and with the energy of the Earth, and to uphold a clear energy field (the Human Aura) through such modalities as meditation and Reiki. Cleansing the physical body in salt water, such as the ocean, or allowing yourself a warm bath with Himalayan sea salt is also highly effective for cleansing the Human Aura!!!

At the New Moon, Neptune in Pisces is conjunct the South Node of the Moon. The South Node, which is a “point” in the astrological chart and not a physical object, represents “the past” and that which must be “released” so that we might move forward along our creative, evolutionary and Spiritual Journey! Neptune’s connection with this point has been in play for most of this year, and at this Lunation, we are offered the opportunity to release all beliefs, belief systems (specifically those connected to “false” religion and all lower vibrational, logical thoughts) that have created limitations in our physical world, and to embrace a higher vibrational “Knowing” of what will serve a greater purpose for each one personally, and then globally. All self-righteousness and false teachings, specifically in history and religion, must now be dissolved and will continually to be disbanded, if Humanity is to elevate to a Humanitarian, more loving and peaceful existence.

Jupiter in Libra begins to form its first of three oppositions—Full Moon energy aspect—to Uranus in Aries that will continue through to the fall of 2017. Jupiter brings expansion wherever it goes and Uranus offers the opportunity—if we choose to see the Blessing—for an Awakening, which leads to Awareness and then to a peaceful sense of “Knowing.” Into this equation, we have Pluto at almost 16 degrees of Capricorn, suggesting the aforementioned unsettlement demonstrated in the protests to the election certainly is not over. In the coming months, leading up to the inauguration of the next president of the United States, we shall continue to observe this unnecessary rebellion and anarchy if we ALLOW ourselves to be influenced by the subtle dark forces that have as their greatest desire keeping the majority of Humanity in a place of Fear and not Love. When we allow ourselves to be grounded and clear, we experience the “Eye of Discernment” to know when the influence of this dark energy is at play.

As always, to realize or deny the Knowing, the choice is most certainly ours.

Blessed Be and Be Blessed.

Scorpio New Moon

October 30, 2016

1:38 P.M., EDT

Washington, D.C.


Our forthcoming New Moon inhabits the sign Scorpio; the sign most associated with Apothecaries and Blackthorn trees, death, our experiences after the physical death and heather. The second water sign of the Tropical Zodiac governs magic and magicians, pallbearers and plutonium, regeneration, reincarnation and transformation as well as witches!

Remember to review the precise placement of the Lunation in your natal chart and the aspects it forms to the points in your chart to best understand how to assimilate these energies on a more personal level.

The Sun and Moon unification is located at almost 8 degrees of Scorpio and alongside the Sun and Moon we have Mercury at almost 10 degrees of Scorpio. What I observe to be the most magnificent and profound opportunity at this New Moon is the placement of the Sun, Moon and Mercury in the 9th house of the New Moon chart cast for the United States. In many of my forecasts over the course of this last unprecedented year, I’ve illustrated how the greatest potential of the 9th house of the astrological composition connects us with our “Higher Self,” and how each individual, specifically here in the United States, has been given the opportunity from Spirit to clear the etheric link (which we all possess) with our Higher Mind and to allow ourselves to become receptive to the communications from Spirit that stream through this etheric connection of light fiber!

The TRANSOFRMATION of the lower, concrete, 3rd dimensional mind and thinking toward a higher, abstract, Spiritual mode of understanding–which leads to the experience of Knowing–is at hand!

Scorpio represents profound transformation, and the location of Mercury in the sign of Scorpio spells the possibility for change, specifically for  “We The People” here in the United States. We will be served well if we allow ourselves to transform our lowered, 3rd dimensional, highly limited and unproductively logical, thinking process—a trait associated with Mercury—to a higher, more Humanitarian experience so that we might transform, individually first, then by proxy, our Nation.

A monumental shift toward an overall experience of higher consciousness has been unfolding here in our country, and this transformative New Moon suggests this experience is at an acceleration point, especially since we are approaching the Presidential Election on November 8, 2016. At this New Moon, Spirit suggests that we allow ourselves the opportunity to transform our lower, logical, limited forms of thinking to a higher vibrational, abstract, infinite method of thinking which allows us to experience boundless solutions to all that we may perceive, and miscreate, as challenges.

Neptune, located at 9 degrees of Pisces, forms a harmonious, effortless-ease trine energy aspect (120-degrees) to the Sun, Moon and Mercury. The energy of this placement offers a greater flow of power from the etheric, Spiritual Realm, suggesting a heightened experience of psychic sensitivity that allows everyone to become aware of our personal, “psychic” connection with the Spirit Realm. When our energy field is clear from interFEARance and we are grounded with the energy of our Earth, Neptune allows us to become acutely aware of the presence of Spirit and all that it has to share with each of us! If we are not clear in our Being and/or grounded with the energy of the Earth, the lower vibrational potentials of Neptune are demonstrated and we experience “woolgathering,” nebulous and nefarious situations as well as conditions connected with the abuse of substances such as alcohol and drugs. Many may choose escapism–another low vibration manifestation of Neptune–during these unique times, and because of free will, may choose NOT to embrace the greater, self-empowering potentials at hand.

The coming weeks could be one of the most intense periods where we observe the element of fear coming to the surface in the outer world. Another low-vibrational quality of Scorpio is fear, and the energy of this New Moon stimulates the RELEASE of fear. Many times when we are offered the opportunity to release fear, we become aware of the presence of the fear that needs to be released. Where we err is when instead of releasing the fear, we direct so much energy towards it–in whatever form it may manifest–that we inadvertently reinforce the fear. The opportunity we have is to let it go.

As I’ve mentioned in prior writing, since 2014 we have observed some of the most horrific demonstrations of the low-vibrational Human potential in the outer world. This experience is a RELEASE of all fear and low-vibrational thoughts that reside in each individual. To embrace the opportunity to release a low-frequency condition, we must first become aware of the existence of the circumstance, and then CHOOSE to recognize the condition, and then CHOOSE to release the condition and not direct so much of our attention toward the negative experience in that we CREATE additional low-level occurrences.

In the coming weeks, expect the unexpected, and if any fear condition rises to the surface, whether it be personally or in the outer world, embrace the experience, become “curious” about what is unfolding for you, choose to release, transform and transmute–two of the higher potentials of Scorpio–all that no longer serves a purpose, and observe how you will Rise Above all lower frequency encounters.

Blessed Be and Be Blessed.

Libra New Moon

Black Moon

September 30, 2016

8:12 P.M., EDT

Washington, D.C.


Our second New Moon, or “Black Moon,” in September 2016 holds residence in the sign Libra; the sign of art and fine arts, balance, beauty and diamonds, grace, lovers and musicians. Our seventh sign of the Tropical Zodiac presides over pacifism and the pacifists, peace and peacekeepers, quartz, roses, symmetry and violets. Review the precise placement and the aspects the New Moon creates in your personal astrological charts as a guide to how to best apply, set into motion and make the most of these planetary potentials on an individual level.

The Sun/Moon union resides at 8 degrees of Libra and is coupled with Jupiter at 4-and-a-half degrees of Libra. The Luminaries and the “Greater Benefic (Jupiter) reside in the 6th house of the New Moon chart cast for the United States, and this trinity is accompanied by Venus at 9 degrees of Scorpio. The triage triad–Sun, Moon and Jupiter–in nonviolent Libra profoundly suggest the crucial need at this time to incorporate in all of our lives the element of Peace as well as the understanding of Humanity’s forever connection to Gaia (Mother Earth, who is governed by Libra as well as Venus) And as this energy holds court in the 6th house of the New Moon chart cast for the U.S. we are provided with the opportunity to recognize and embrace our “service” to Humanity–in whatever mode we choose. Ironically, as we become aware of the profound need for Peace throughout our entire world, we have once again become witness to the horrors miscreated by Humanity with the recent events in Charlotte, N.C.

The Air and Fire signs generate the potential to produce a prolific level of creativity. As I have mentioned in prior writings, when we allow ourselves to express our Creativity, we connect with the energy of Divinity, and when we connect with Divinity, we channel profound Creativity. Like the August New Moon in Leo, this New Moon provides the opportunity to acknowledge and recognize the element of Creativity that exists in everyone and not simply in one who may be observed as an Artist or Musician. Creativity exists in all things, especially the Earth (Libra), and all Beings are innately CREATIVE BEINGS!

Neptune at almost 10 degrees of Pisces forms a transformative inconjunct (150 degree) aspect to the Sun, Moon and Jupiter, reinforcing the understanding of the connection between Divinity and Creativity. This placement of Neptune also suggests that the collective of Humanity is undergoing a major Spiritual transformation. When we ALLOW ourselves to recognize our innate connection with the Earth and all its elements, we begin to understand the natural relationship we have with all of Humanity, collectively, as well as with each person, individually, for we are All One. This knowing is an integral part of this Spiritual transformation being presented at this time.

During the last several years, we have witnessed a SURGE in the number of horrific events coming to form, and being miscreated by Humanity in our outer world. These events are the result of fear; the dark forces that desire to control all things–known as the Cabal–fear being destroyed and dissolved and defunct, and that energy force is attempting its last ditch effort at reasserting its diminishing control over humanity. It has shown itself in the horrific events that recently came to form in Charlotte, N.C., and in Paris, among other cities. These forces have ONLY the POWER we give to them; innately they have NO POWER over us. Humanity is being offered the opportunity to establish higher vibrational, “LOVE-frequency” choices, to create Peace within the self, and to Honor and respect our Earth. When we each choose this for ourselves and in our Homes, we shall radiate this energy thought our neighborhoods, our states our countries and our World.

In the 1970s, there was a television campaign sponsored by the city of New York, encouraging each resident of New York City, literally, to “clean their own stoop.” By each person doing so, individually, the community, collectively, would create an entire neighborhood of “clean stoops,” both literal and figurative, and then the entire city would be clean. What Spirit suggests in this writing is just the same. Create Peace within yourself FIRST; do not choose to make another “wrong” or seek to correct the deeds of another. We are here to be responsible for only our own household. And, then, through the process of “osmosis” shall we observe this Peace in the outer World.

At this Peaceful, Love-filled Libra New Moon, establish these higher vibrational choices for yourself.

Blessed Be and Be Blessed.

Virgo New Moon

Solar Eclipse

September 1, 2016

5:04 A.M., EDT

Washington, D.C.


Our imminent New Moon, which is also a Solar Eclipse, is located in the sign Virgo; the sign of animals in general and the armed forces, care and health of the body, critical persons and criticism as well as healing and healers in general. Virgo governs nursing and nutrition, policemen and the police, servants and sewing, volunteering and the workplace. As always look to the precise location of the Lunation and the aspects it creates to the points in your personal charts for a higher assessment of how these planetary potentials may be incorporated into your individual consciousness.

Keep in mind the energies of an Eclipse can be felt up to 3 months prior to the actual Eclipse and may remain influential for up to 6 months, and in some instances, even longer. Allow yourselves to be abundantly aware of all the energy you set in motion during the day before, the day of and the day after the Solar Eclipse as the intentions cast on those days contain the potential to remain in motion for up to 6 months, and in some instances, longer.


The Sun/Moon union is located at 9 degrees of Virgo and the most significant, strongest aspect to the Sun and Moon generates from an opposition “Full Moon” energy aspect from Neptune in Pisces at 10 degrees. And, in addition to the influence emanating from Neptune, we have Saturn at 10 degrees of Sagittarius forming a creative and dynamic, volatile and combustive square energy aspect to the Sun and Moon amalgamation and Neptune. This configuration creates a fiery, and potentially unstable, square energy equation. The element of change is upon “We The People” of the United States, and the tides are most certainly turning!

As I have been illustrating in my forecasts in the recent past, we are in a period of “disclosure” where “We The People,” in all nations but specifically here in the United States, will become abundantly aware of the corruption that exists in the dark caverns of government and organized religion. This information will bring to the people awareness of the dark forces that have been in existence for eons, with the intention to disempower the peoples of all nations. And, now, as I have profoundly illustrated in recent forecasts, each person of every nation is being offered the opportunity of SELF-EMPOWERMENT. And, as mentioned, this is in no way to suggest we MISUSE this power to control or disempower another, rather to recognize that each individual has been imbued, at birth, with the same power that created all things.

The aforementioned combination of the Solar Eclipse, Saturn and Neptune suggests that Humanity is in a period of a great revelation, and these disclosures of dark forces and corruptions will unfold in the coming three months. One of the many disclosures may be a revelation about the September 11, 2001 experience as well as the true origins of the “Great Recession” of 2008. I have been shown information already in motion that offers insights to the machinations of the dark forces, and I always suggest that no one take my word for anything; rather, explore information already being shared with Humanity and those who express the untainted intention to simply know, not from the place of E.G.O. (Edge God Out), but from that place of Love–Higher Love!

The ongoing, Saturn/Neptune square energy aspect, which will form its final, exact configuration on September 10, 2016, is the driving force of these revelations. Our nebulous, illusory and sometimes deceitful friend Neptune may bring us a sense of vast confusion, uncertainty, escapisms and dishonesty, and once the cloud of confusion Neptune creates has been lifted, we are offered profound knowings of Truth and Spiritual Justice. Also, the transit of Neptune to the placement of Pluto in the chart cast for the September 11, 2001 experience suggests the continual disclosure of the “real forces” at the helm of this horrific experience.

The challenge with the Saturn/Neptune configuration is that we must allow ourselves to remain diligently grounded to the energy of the Earth and ensure that our Aura, energy field, is clear of debris and any interFEARance that may distort our ability to process the information we receive from Spirit. It is when we are grounded with the Energy of our Earth and our being is free of interference that we know who and what information we are to Trust. There is great intention by the Dark Forces to instill the element of vast confusion into the public; I have sensed the escalation of a shrewd, sinister force at work in the United States, specifically in the current presidential campaign. And, I emphatically suggest approaching all information being offered from all aspects of the media with caution and great care.

This current period of disclosure is a part of a larger cycle offering the opportunity of empowerment to “We The People” of the United States, as well as to people of all other nations. As I have mentioned, the re-establishment and the return to the intended objective of the Founding Fathers of the United States with the creation of the United States Constitution is the “golden” opportunity in a large cycle of experience that will complete itself during the years 2021-2023.

Because a Solar Eclipse is a New Moon, we are embarking on a threshold of a significant new beginning in the Evolution of Humanity. The phenomenon of an Eclipse will always punctuate a period indicating a great shift of energy, and this current shift of energy is, hopefully, a propelling thrust toward Higher Spiritual Consciousness.


“Your inner Divine Self will protect you from this [deception]. You must learn to be sensitive to the Voice within, that can tell you what is Truth, and what is confusion, chaos and untruth. Learn to listen to the Voice of Truth which is within you, and you will lead yourselves on to the path of Evolution.” ~unknown

Leo New Moon

August 2, 2016

4:45 P.M., EDT

Washington, D.C.


Our forthcoming New Moon is located in the sign Leo; the sign of children in general, creativity, the creative abilities as well as deserts and diamonds. The second fire sign of the Tropical Zodiac governs fireplaces and frankincense, gold and greatness, lions and love affairs, and money lenders, motion pictures, rubies and thrones! As always, please look to the precise position of the lunation and its aspects in your chart to better understand how to apply these new beginning potentials into your consciousness. The Sun and Moon merger resides at almost 11 degrees of Leo.

I have advanced to understand that the two most significant, profound and marvelous virtues represented by the element of the sign Leo are Creativity and Divinity. I have illustrated in the past that “when we connect with Divinity, we express ourselves Creatively, and when we express our Creativity, we demonstrate Divinity.”

At this New Moon, Humanity is being offered the opportunity, from Spirit, to incorporate into our experiences this higher knowing of the tethered connection between Creativity and Divinity. Creativity is often associated only with artistic and musical talents; however, true Creativity demonstrates itself through ALL FORMS of self-expression!

Two of the most prominent energies being generated toward the Sun and Moon amalgamation (New Moon) originate from, one, a transformative, inconjunct energy aspect (150 degrees) from Neptune, who is at 11 degrees of Pisces, and, two, a harmonious, effortless ease, trine energy (120-degree) aspect from Saturn at 10 degrees of Sagittarius.

The inconjunct aspect of Neptune to the Sun and Moon needs to be approached with great care to avoid  the manifestation of a lower vibrational, negative demonstration of Neptune in Pisces and its aspects to the Sun and Moon! Characteristics such as self-deception, dishonesty and misleading from others–such as political and religious leaders–delusions of grandeur, self-righteousness, egocentricity, and loosely formed opinions, to name just a few are all lower vibrational qualities of this alignment that do not serve a higher purpose. We need to administer great care to NOT allow ourselves to be consumed by the lower frequency of this alignment, specifically during such a time of dark and sinister energy coming to form in our outer world, and solidifying these qualities in our experiences. Remember, a “New Moon” is a time of a “New Beginning,” and whatever we encode into our being at the time of the New Moon remains in effect until the Full Moon, and sometimes even longer!

The higher vibration demonstration of this seemingly nebulous and nefarious alignment allows the individual to deeply connect with higher vibrations of creative energy that emanate from the realm of Spirit. To receive benefit from what seems to be an inferior frequency factor, we must remain grounded by connecting to the energy of Gaia (Mother Earth) and to be clear in our energy, aura field. And, with the dedication tofacilitating the transference of such profoundly creative and inspirational insights from Spirit, we most certainly achieve and demonstrate the higher vibrational outcome of this opportunity.

This aspect of Neptune to the Sun and Moon represents a transformation of the public, in general, on a Spiritual level. This energy also suggests the RELEASE and possible demonstration of the “fear” element in our world. When fear becomes apparent–and I suggest ALLOW yourself to become aware of any fear that comes to the surface of in the near future–it becomes apparent so that we might RELEASE the fear. And, the error we embark upon, is to inadvertently fuel the fear and then unconsciously set in motion continual fear and the demonstration of such.

Saturn, in the sign of the Higher Self, Sagittarius, forming a harmonious aspect to the Sun and Moon, suggests the processing of creative energy from Spirit can be fluid, even effortless, provided that we, in our Human form, are grounded and clear of the interference of particles of energy debris.

This New Moon inspires Humanity to employ the “God Power” (Leo) that has been instilled, at birth, in each of us. This is NOT for us to inflict this power over another; this awareness is so that we empower ourselves creatively and recognize that we have the intrinsic aptitude to create all that we desire, effortlessly.

Mars, now in Sagittarius and remaining so until September 27, 2016, stimulates the vein of energy that connects to the higher mind, invigorating creativity as well as inspiration at the time of the New Moon.

And, as we advance through the coming months, we shall continue with the progression of the disclosure of much information that has been kept in secret from the Dark Forces masquerading as the powers that be. This event is represented in the ongoing Saturn/Neptune square energy aspect, and will culminate when transiting Saturn will form a square energy aspect to Neptune in the United States chart through 2017!

Create with Greatness.

Cancer New Moon

July 4, 2016

7:02 A.M., EDT

Washington, D.C.


Our next New Moon is positioned in the sign Cancer; the sign of Algiers and crustaceous animals, of brooks and cabbage, of dining rooms and domestic life. The first water sign of the Tropical Zodiac governs fountains, gardens and gardeners, kitchens, lakes and water lilies as well as mushrooms, pearls, pumpkins and the sea. As with all astrological actions, look to the precise residence of the Lunation in your personal Astrological arrangement and the aspects created to the points in your chart to understand how you can execute these New Moon possibilities into your realities.

The blending of the Sun and Moon is located at almost 13 degrees of Cancer, and this New Moon on July 4 coincides with the birthday of the United States. Since early 2014 the United States, and more specifically, the people (“We The People”), have been undergoing a transformational, more precisely, “self-empowerment” experience, brought to us by Pluto. Our distant friend Pluto, who I have referred to as “The Great Transformer,” continues to be the most influential celestial being in our Solar System. Once Pluto touches you, nothing, absolutely nothing remains the same.

When a New Moon coincides with a birthday, the coming year is very much indicative of a “new beginning” time for the native. Just as a New Moon represents the initiation of the Lunar cycle, a “birthday” New Moon reflects a new start, a new journey, a new beginning. The start of the birth year for the United States is–for this year–on July 4, 2016 at exactly 5:50:55 P.M., EDT, less than 11 hours after the start of the Lunar cycle at 7:02 A.M., EDT. Incidentally, our last Full Moon was also at 7:02 A.M., EDT, and when, in numerology, we reduce the 7:02, it becomes 7 + 2 = 9. Significantly, the number “9” represents an ending time, a clearing away, a letting go of the old, outworn and outmoded, so that a new beginning may commence.

During these unprecedented times, “We The People,” of the United States are being offered the opportunity to “take back” the country. Let me emphasize that this offering is in no way intended for the people of the United States to overthrow the Government, for that demonstration would render this opportunity completely defunct!

Rather, “We The People” are at a time of empowerment, SELF-EMPOWERMENT; this experience is for each individual to KNOW his/her innate ability to create and co-create with Spirit, all that we desire, all that we may “need” to fully experience living connected with integrity, peace, harmony, balance, joy as well as Love, so that we are not rendered powerless by the “need” to rely on another. (Depending on our government to “take care” of us is one example of powerlessness). We are offered the opportunity to become SELF-SUFFICIENT, Spiritually and otherwise, to become RESPONSIBLE for our own household, our path and our well-being. Each one of us has been imbued with the power to CREATE IT so!

Again, this is NOT to suggest anyone become subordinate or otherwise to our leaders. Rather, when we individually recognize the power within the self and inspire (in-spire–with SPIRIT) ourselves with the realization of the CREATIVE power that has been instilled in us, and when this knowing gels in the collective consciousness, we will give rise to a leader who demonstrates the greatest potential in a true leader: knowing how to empower the people!

It was somewhere between 2005 and 2007 that I “predicted” that there would be a “restructuring” of the United States Constitution that would begin in 2010 and continue through 2022. What I now foresee, regarding the Constitution, which has been rendered impotent, is a RE-ESTABLISHMENT of this doctrine of the United States as it was created and intended by the Founding Fathers of the United States. The shift of the “re-establishing” of power TO the PEOPLE of the U.S. will punctuate a notable turning point for the people to take back the country and reinstate Abraham Lincoln’s vision of “a Government of the People, by the People, for the People.”

This experience is so that the United States is to become a UNIFED, integral part of our Planet and not necessarily a singular, “demi-God” nation. I believe this “New Beginning” period is to usher in the start of this higher-vibrational knowing for our country. The metamorphosis, which began in 2014, is now being amplified and will continue advance as we move through the remainder of this crucial year in the evolution of the United States.

Earlier this year, the great transformer, Pluto, moved into the second house of the U.S. Astrological Chart. This passage through the sector of the astrological composition that represents income, all things monetary and on which we place “value,” is indicative of a transformation of the MONETARTY system in our Country. A great aspect of this metamorphic process is that all people in the United States, as well as in all other nations, possess the ability to create ABUNDANCE, not only monetarily, but in all aspects of their lives. Abundance is a very “natural” phenomenon; there is abundance EVERYWHERE in Creation, in the plants, grains of sand, oceans, fish, planets, stars, galaxies. It is our birthright to experience abundance, and that true knowing is coming to form.

Much of the “wealth” in the United States is connected to Government and “Big Business,” and the likes, creating an extreme inequity. As Natures always does when there is an imbalance, it will innately re-establish the necessary balance.

The “structure” of the monetary system and how it operates will undergo a transformation experiences. How this will “play out” is not yet clear to me, and the entire experience will unfold and “crystallize” in the years 2021-2024. This process has only just begun, and I feel that whoever is to be the next commander-in-chief of the United States will begin to facilitate this process, and we shall, in the coming months, notice a change coming to form.

More I shall share as I am “shown” by Spirit, as I observe the coming planetary energies, and as all of Humanity CREATES it to be so.

Taurus New Moon

May 6, 2016

3:30 P.M., EDT

Washington, D.C.


Our next New Moon is positioned in the sign Taurus; the sign of the artist, our artistic abilities, banks in general, and our bankers. Taurus governs generosity, loyalty, stability and trustworthiness, as well as ambition, independence, practicality, sensuality, dedication and determination. The Sun and Moon fusion is at almost 17 degrees of Taurus; as always, look to the exact placement of the Lunation in your personal astrological composition and the aspects created to assess how you may implement these planetary potentials.

The astrological composition cast for the United States places emphasis on the 8th house of the astrological sonata. The most powerful element of the 8th house is the ingredient of transformation. What we, specifically here in the United States, are being offered is the opportunity to transform our understanding of our connection to the material world and material possessions. The lower vibration of the Taurian element connects with “material slavery,” meaning allowing our material possessions and accumulations to define who we are, our self-worth and our well-being. One of the greatest potentials to embrace at the time of the “Dark Moon”—the 3 days before the onset of the New Moon—is the release of “material slavery.” When we allow ourselves to release these unproductive connections to all things in the material world and we no longer posses the “need” to have such things, we free ourselves from the chains that bind us to the material world. Ironically, in so doing we create and attract more than we desire, as well as all things that support our individual well-being.

Venus, the Moon, the Sun and Mercury all occupy the sign of Taurus at the time of the New Moon and with Venus the planetary ruler of Taurus, the value of the element of all things material, our “creature comforts,” is accentuated. Pluto, the planet associated with the 8th house and transformation, forms a harmonic trine-energy aspect to the Sun, Moon and Mercury. This powerful placement of Pluto to the New Moon brings to form our understanding of how to “allow” all that we desire to effortlessly come to us. In addition, we have Jupiter, the planet of abundance, forming a “go with the flow” trine aspect to the Sun and Moon. The trine, triangle aspect of 3 elements—New Moon, Jupiter, Pluto—create a “grand-trine” formation. With this powerful energy that we channel from the Heavens, we bring forth, with ease, our knowing of the power of manifestation. At this New Moon, set forth, by intention, your ability to work with Spirit in bringing to form all you desire for yourself, as well as for others and allow yourself to have no etheric connection to what you create!

The astrological chart cast for the United States has the sign Virgo rising on the Horizon at the onset of this Lunar cycle. Virgo connects with the planet Mercury, and this element at times creates the condition of over-thinking as well as excessive analysis of all things. The Virgo/Pisces polarity—Pisces being the polar opposite of Virgo—offers the opportunity to move from a place of FEAR (Virgo) to a place of pure LOVE (Pisces). At the time of the Dark Moon, as previously mentioned, we might choose to release any fear of having to “need” anything from this materially dense Human experience. The greater our awareness of no longer having the “need” of material possessions, the greater our ability to manifest all that we desire.

Saturn in the sign Sagittarius, the sign of the higher mind and higher thinking, forms a creative and dynamic square, 90-degree, energy aspect to Jupiter. A “lower” vibrational energy demonstration of this configuration may cause us to be somewhat self-righteous in our thinking and beliefs. The higher frequency demonstration of this arrangement allows us to be highly determined in creating all that we desire. In addition, it encodes in at this time, a resilient conviction of what we have come to understand for our own personal Human experience. This Saturn placement also generates the alternative knowing that when we are truly in a higher vibration Spiritual experience, we bring to form the abundance that exists in all of creation. It’s when we allow ourselves to believe the fallacy and cause ourselves to accept the misguided belief that POVERTY is a Spiritual trait that we dissolve and dishonor our Divine power and birthright to CREATE all things, including abundance in all facets of our Human experience. At the time of the New Moon, Saturn is located in the 3rd house, the sector of the astrological charts that governs our thoughts; this placement stimulates the determination and dedication to transform our lower thinking and thoughts to a place of higher understanding and an overall KNOWING.

At this New Moon, we are being offered the opportunity to TRANSFORM our thoughts connected to the material world and create a higher knowing of this world of density and matter that transcends our Human experience and allowing it all to no longer “matter,” because in Spirit, it does not “matter,” because there is no matter.

Namaste.

Aries New Moon

April 7, 2016

7:24 A.M., EDT

Washington, D.C.


Our next New Moon is positioned in the sign Aries, the sign of adventures and amethyst, England and Florence, Italy, hairdressers and holly. The first sign of the Tropical Zodiac governs kilns and lambs, metals in general and mustard, ochre and onions, thistles and toothaches. As with any lunation and planetary happening, look to its position in your individual astrological charts in order to gain a better understanding of how these energies implement into your personal life.

The Sun and Moon fusion is at 18 degrees of Aries. In the New Moon chart cast for the United States, the 12th house–the sector of the Astrological Chart that represents all that is hidden, the unconscious as well as the collective unconscious, karma and the underworld–is emphasized. When the 12th house is activated in a person’s natal astrological chart, there is a profound need for a “release” of accumulated, deep-seated energy–much of which can be considered “toxic,” such as the manifestation of a difficult, challenging illness or the release of deeply embedded emotions. On a Spiritual and Metaphysical level these are the real fundamental cause of any illness. The 12th house of the astrological sonata also connects with the factor of “secret enemies” and the underworld. The sector also represents the “karmic energy,” if you will, that we brought with us from a prior incarnation into this present embodiment. These are matters that are released throughout the lifetime so that we might accelerate our Spiritual Evolution and advance toward a higher plane of experience. This occurrence may be achieved either in our current embodiment, or we might choose to engage in such during a later personification. The choice is always ours.

This illustration of the release of dark matter may seem to project a dire image; however, when we approach any occurrence from a high vibrational understanding and a place of Love, we are connecting with our imbued power of creation that will offset any negative energy and the power–and choice–to redirect that energy toward a more Loving experience and outcome. The release always presents us with the opportunity to make a quantum leap, a paradigm shift in our Spiritual Evolution.

Uranus, the “Great Awakener,” is 2 degrees away from the Sun and Moon in the 12th house, a postion that profoundly suggests that we, here in the United States, are at another point of being “awakened,” and sometimes, we need to be unabashedly shaken up before we awaken.

In my previous “Full Moon Forecast,” I wrote:

Pluto, the governor of the “underworld,” is at the highest point of the United States Eclipse chart, and certainly this placement could indicate the rise of a “dark force.”

Once again, Pluto, the “Dark Knight,” is located at the highest point of the New Moon chart, emphasizing the coming to form of dark negative energy, as well as the awareness of self-empowerment. Since my last forecast, Humanity has once again become witness to the horrors that it creates and miscreates, most notably in the form of the attacks in Brussels. The coming months may certainly not be void of such activity, and until something comes to form, we have the opportunity to redirect the energy toward the manifestation of something positive.

The energy of Uranus to the Sun and Moon indicates that “We The People,” here in the United States, and certainly throughout the entire world, are, again, at a juncture in time of the revelation of a “Great Awakening!” This initiation of high vibrational experiences certainly does not need to solidify itself through the experience of a tragedy. When we choose to create all things from a place of Love, we set in motion the experience of a “Win/Win” situation!

Taurus is rising in the New Moon chart cast for the United States, indicating that one of the elements that requires release from our collective unconsciousness is “material slavery.” We need to choose to allow ourselves to be free of the “need” of material possessions, which includes the manifestation of wealth that is steeped in greed. This is not to suggest we are to do without; it simply serves us better, personally and collectively, when we do not “need” to have material possessions to define our self-worth. The incorporation of this element at this New Moon, New Beginning will serve all a higher purpose, if we choose to allow ourselves to see beyond the physical, to the Metaphysical.

On March 25, 2016, Saturn moved retrograde and will remain so until August 13, 2016. Saturn, among many things, connects with our career, our long-term goals, our greatest achievements, as well as caution, what might “seem” to be a restriction or limitation, where in fact, Saturn allows us to recognize exactly what we need to know, so that we might bring to form our greatest desire. While Saturn is experiencing its retrograde period, allow yourself this time to REVIEW and REFLECT on your personal goals, objectives, your career or what you would choose to be your greatest career experience and more profoundly, your purpose!

Namaste.

Aquarius New Moon

February 8, 2016

9:39 A.M., EST

Washington, D.C.


Our next New Moon is positioned in the sign Aquarius, the sign of altruism and the altruist, Astrology and the Astrologer as well as the ether and the explorer. The 11th sign of the Tropical Zodiac governs faith healers and frankincense, free thinkers, free will and our friends. Aquarius connects with Hope, Humanitarianism, occultism, pacifism, paradoxes, progress and higher knowings of Spirituality. The Sun and Moon union is at 19 degrees of Aquarius,  and as with all Lunations and planetary activity, look to its exact position in your charts and the aspects created to understand how to execute these New Moon potentials.

In the 1960s, Humanity began to usher in the “Age Of Aquarius,” as was indicated over and over in that familiar song, “this is the DAWNING of the Age of Aquarius.” Humanity is most certainly at a pivotal point along its path of Evolution–specifically in these times–where we are continually being offered the opportunity to ascend to a heightened level of knowing and then demonstrating that knowing from a place of Love. And, as much as we are advancing in our Spiritual Evolution, the element of fear carries equal weight, bringing to bear advanced in efforts to thwart the Spiritual acceleration during these unprecedented times for Humanity’s advance.

This New Moon in the sign of the New Age offers each of us the opportunity–in whatever form we choose to manifest–to incorporate the Humanitarian element in all that we demonstrate while we are here in Human form. Since 2004, there has been an acceleration of opportunities being offered from Spirit for Humanity to embrace higher levels of Spiritual knowings so that we might accept advanced choices of living. We have also been shown from Spirit how our connections with Spirit, the information we each receive and process from Spirit, is very much a “natural phenomenon,” as has been the intention from Spirit, to be very much a part of our Human journey.

Uranus, the planet that governs Aquarius, forms an opportunity 60-degree sextile energy aspect to the Sun and Moon amalgamation, providing an optimum period to integrate these higher levels of Humanitarian knowing into all that we demonstrate. Saturn, at almost 15 degrees of Sagittarius, forms the same energy aspect as Uranus to the Sun and Moon, generating a structured thought process that comes from the Higher mind–provided our energy field is clear of accumulated particles of debris that which will interFEAR with the clarity of the receptivity! Saturn also forms a harmonic, trine (120-degree) energy aspect to Uranus, further opening the channel of communication from the higher mind, as well as the “flow” of energy that facilitates the process of the philanthropic information being offered from Spirit for Humanity to encode into its Being and Human expression.

Mars, who is at almost 19 degrees of Scorpio at the time of the New Moon, forms a creative and dynamic square energy (90-degree) aspect to the Sun and Moon; handle this energy with care and caution. Mars itself represents energy, Aquarius represents electricity, and this combination has the potential to create a “brownout” of the grid of the mind!

On the “lower” end of how this force may be demonstrated is that we find ourselves experiencing a tremendous amount of erratic, unbalanced thought-energy, especially if we are “grounded,” and may cause the thought process to greatly “short-circuit!” We must also offer care to not be influenced by subtle, negative influences such as being in close proximity to an individual who, either knowingly or unconsciously, disgorges negative energy.

At the “higher” end of the vibrational spectrum, when we allow ourselves to be firmly rooted and grounded, especially to the energy of the Earth, we can process a tremendous amount of high vibrational thought energy and information from the Spirit Realm/Higher Mind and bring about a “quantum leap” along out Spiritual Path.

Allow yourself to be guided and Inspired from Spirit, at the time of this New Moon, as to what quality you might encode into your Human experience that will assist you in facilitating your Spiritual growth, which is certainly very much a magnificent part of the evolution of Humanity.

Namaste.

Capricorn New Moon

January 9, 2016

8:30 P.M., EST

Washington, D.C.


Our first New Moon of the new year is positioned in the sign Capricorn, the sign of business in general, as well as places of business, concentration and convents, the economy and employers. The 10th sign of the Tropical Zodiac governs our goals, specifically our long-term goals, our highest achievements, and our profession. Look to the precise position of the New Moon in your individual astrological charts to understand how to best implement these energies into your experiences!

The Sun and Moon union resides at 19 degrees of Capricorn, and in close proximity, we have Pluto, the planet most associated with empowerment, at 15 degrees of Capricorn. As Pluto (POWER) connects to the energy of the New Moon we are offered the opportunity for SELF-EMPOWERMENT in connecting with our goals (short- and long-term) and our highest achievements.

Four days prior to the New Moon, on January 5, 2016, Mercury began its first retrograde phase of the year and will remain in retrograde until January 25, 2016. Mercury begins its retrograde period in the sign Aquarius and then moves back into Capricorn. This retrograde phase is an optimum time to REVIEW, REFLECT and REASSESS our long-term goals as well as our desires for what might be our highest achievements. This phase is also an ideal time to REFLECT on how each of us has the potential to express Humanitarian qualities and how we as individuals can contribute to the elevation of Human consciousness by being in a place of Love and demonstrating ourselves as Spiritual Beings during this Human experience. Through our goals and highest achievements, we can become compassionate. With that, Spirit suggests we weave into those desires the element of the Humanitarian (Aquarius) and channel that energy into our goals and professions (Capricorn). By doing so, through our aspirations and greatest triumphs, we can become “beings of high vibration” and through our accomplishments elevate the collective vibration and consciousness of Humanity.

When we incorporate the highest, positive vibrational quality of Pluto, the planet most associated with EMPOWERMENT, we empower ourselves to achieve all that we desire, and in so doing, empower one another! The result is the “WIN/WIN” knowing that is one of Spirit’s greatest desires for all of us while we are in Human form.

Mercury connects with Pluto on January 22 & 30, 2016, and Pluto (POWER) connects to the energy of the New Moon, setting in motion the opportunity for SELF-EMPOWERMENT in connecting with our goals and highest achievements.

At the launch of this Lunar cycle, Venus and Saturn come together in the sign of Sagittarius and form a harmonic trine (120-degree) energy aspect to Uranus, the planet most associated with the Humanitarian. This composition encodes the energy of the Humanitarian in our professional and personal endeavors (Saturn) and with the addition of Venus–whom I understand to be the “blessings in disguise”–a blessed element is bestowed upon us as we set the energy in motion, through intention, for the manifestation of our Desire.

We also have a Blessing from Jupiter at 23 degrees of Virgo forming an “effortless ease” energy aspect to the New Moon, suggesting that when we are in that place of complete Trust in and with Spirit, all that we desire will manifest with a graceful, natural, “better than expected” stream of easiness.

Many Blessings for a year filled with the manifestation of many desires.

Namaste.

Sagittarius New Moon

December 11, 2015

5:30 A.M., EST

Washington, D.C.


Our next New Moon is in the sign Sagittarius, the sign of abundance and aliens, clergymen and colleges, faith and fireplaces. Sagittarius governs long journeys and literature, philanthropy and philosophy, religion and riding of horses, Spirituality and Theologians. As with all planetary activity, look to the exact placement of the Lunation in your personal Astrological chart to gain a greater understanding of how to set in motion the New Moon energies. The Sun and Moon conjuncture resides at 19 degrees of the 9th sign of the Tropical Zodiac.

Sagittarius most associates with the higher mind, our beliefs, belief systems, and most of all, Faith. In the days approaching the New Moon, we are given the opportunity to reflect, review and reassess our beliefs, specifically, our Spiritual beliefs so that at the onset of this new lunar cycle, we set in motion a higher knowing of what will allow us to progress on this Spiritual path, while we are in Human form. This New Moon is an ideal time to set in motion new, higher vibrational beliefs and philosophies into our Human experience.

The Sun and Moon union receives a creative and dynamic square (90 degree) energy aspect from abundant Jupiter at 22 degrees of Virgo. This placement gives an over-abundance of potentially erratic energy to the mind and thought process. However, when we allow ourselves to be grounded with the energy of the Earth, we harness this energy and channel the force into something creative and productive. It is when we are not grounded and balanced that this heightened energy of our mind becomes debilitating and may potentially interFEAR with our well-being.

This elevated activity of the mind’s energy is a reflection of the surge of information and inspiration we are being given from Spirit and our Higher Mind (Sagittarius). This information pertains to our personal Spiritual growth as well as our Human (collective) evolution. On December 2, 2015 we witnessed yet another horrific demonstration of the malevolence of Humanity. The information from the higher mind is guidance from Spirit as to how each of us, on a personal level, may create the change that will potentially offset further of these experiences from coming to form.

Mars at 16 degrees of Libra forms and opposition, “Full Moon” energy aspect with Uranus at 16 degrees of Aries and with Pluto at 14 degrees of Capricorn creates a combustive, t-square energy aspect. This energy can potentially indicate unsettlement and volatility, especially during the weekend of December 18. And, as I have emphasized, each one of us possesses the ability to offset any negativity that may come to form in the outer world. Spirit requires only that we have the desire and then the intention of Love to redirect potential negative energy toward a higher vibrational, loving outcome!

The Saturn/Neptune square energy aspect, which was first exact on November 26 and will continue through 2016, is active at the time of the New Moon. We must take great care not to become “self-righteous” with the information being offered from Spirit and with the incorporation of the higher, reformulated, aforementioned higher, personal beliefs. We certainly are here to share our thoughts, we are not here to bombastically–and without invitation–impose our beliefs on another.

As the energy of the Saturn/Neptune alignment unfurls itself in the coming year, Humanity will be shown where there has been deception in the arenas of government and religion. Humanity is being offered higher insights into Spiritual understandings, which may have been misrepresented over the course of millennia. We now have greater opportunity to reassess teachings so that we might incorporate a higher vibrational existence that is unconditionally based in Love.

The Winter Solstice here in the Northern Hemisphere takes place on December 21, 2015 at 11:49 P.M., EST. The potential to set in motion the energy for greater abundance in the coming year is very much encoded in the vibrations of the planetary alignments of the Astrological chart cast for the 2015 Winter Solstice. The ritual of lighting Bayberry Candles at the onset of the Winter Solstice is an Earth-based, Spiritual practicethat generates abundance for the coming year.

Wishing everyone a most blessed holiday season.

Namaste.

New Moon
