This Week in Astrology — Saturn in Capricorn /Full Moon in Cancer (2017)

Awakening you to the Archetypal Movement during the week ahead.  The purpose of this blog is to make you aware of the energy available astrologically, for the purpose of spiritual and personal development.

On December 20th, 2017 Saturn enters into its ruling sign Capricorn.  Saturn is well structured, hardworking, persistent, and focused on becoming the best it can be.  Capricorn is the place where you can best express the true you.  Through the qualities of Saturn and Capricorn, one can really achieve its highest heights, like the Mountain Goat (Capricorn).

Capricorn, is derived from the Latin word Capra which means goat.(God of all Things)  If you observe the mountain goat you will see his stability through rocky terrain and high altitudes.  What we can take from that is that, by being grounded one can steadily rise like the Goat.  The goat was worshiped, in ancient Egypt (The goat of Mendes, later the Baphomet), in ancient Greece (Pan later Dionysus).

Where Saturn in Sagittarius for the past 3 years felt like your eccentric self and the things you truly loved were put on hold, Saturn in Capricorn is like taking the mask off and allowing you to be your true self.  Saturn represents rules, diligence, boundaries, observation, and structure.  The reasons are not to punish you or discipline you, it is to bring the things you truly are on the manifest.  So by the end of 2020, the new and better you should emerge but it requires effort on your behalf.

Saturn is the preparer for your our destiny, making sure we are on our path and completing our path.  As we can see in society, old ways of life are collapsing and new ways of living are emerging.  Saturn will end the old way of life and bring about a new way of life.  On one side of Saturn, there is wealth, abundance and resources.  On the other side, there is destruction, dissolution, and loosening of ego.

This Christmas, Venus goes into Capricorn, conjunct the Sun and Saturn.  The Orishas I want to focus on with this transit is  Babalú-Ayé and Oshun.   Babalú-Ayé is the  “Father of the World,”  Oshun is the Goddess of the rivers.   Babalú-Ayé enjoys this world because of Oshun, and Oshun enjoys the feeling of  Babalú-Ayé.   Babalú-Ayé imposes a limitation, but not for punishment, for definition.  Do not sell your soul for pleasure (Oshun), for pleasure wants you as well.  Living simply for pleasure is destructive.  By forming a canal( Babalú-Ayé), one is able to create the modality for abundant water (Oshun) to flow throw.

Where Venus is Love, beauty, and finances coming into a sign of focus, accountability, and maturity.  A key during this time would be to observe and manage your behaviors.  Focus your attention on the things that will better yourself and your environment.  Make sure other people or ideas aren’t blocking you from the things you truly desire and want.  You should be running your perception not other people.  Follow what you know or at least begin to take the steps to do so.  During this time individuals will be able to manifest themselves into the place where you begin to access your goals.

The Full Moon in Cancer at 11 degrees, on January 1, 2018.  The moon is in its rulership as well in Cancer.  This is where it can express itself to the best and fullest.  This Moon is powerful and comfortable, this is also the largest Full Moon of the Year.  This is a time of psychic abilities and you will be able to read others very easily.  Just because you can feel things does not mean you will follow your intuition, this is a good time to do so.  During New Years, parties are in abundance, you will be around a variety of unknown energy, use your sensitivities to navigate the unknown energy during the festivities.

The Full Moon in Cancer will be opposed the Black Moon Lillith in Capricorn.  We talked about the Dark Moon Goddesses before and what the energy means.  The Moon and the Black Moon are polar opposites.  The Moon represents the overt feelings, the Black Moon Lillith represent the unconscious liminal feeling.  They may just cancel each other out and accentuate each other.  The domesticity of the Full Moon in Cancer will be able to hold back the wild reigns of the Black Moon Lillith.  On the contrary, the wildness of the Black Moon Lillith will be able to bring out that wild side and kill some stagnation of the domestic Moon in Cancer.  This energy allows us to tap into some deep information within us and bring it forward.  The deeper you go the more rewarding the energy will feel.

“As we can see, sometimes Lilith plays the role of devil’s advocate and spices things up so that we don’t become stagnant and complacent in our closest relationships. Single people may grow tired of decadent parties and yearn for a safe and solid union, maybe even fall for a dependable someone whom they thought quite dull in the past. Sometimes it takes an interfering bitch to show us just how much we really love the comfy old slipper we call our wife, husband, best friend or business partner.”

Dark Star Astrology

The theme for this week is hard work.  Not hard work for the sake of hard work.  The hard work necessary for transformation.  This requires trust and strength.  Trust to know that your best days are in front of you.   Strength to bring it into manifest.  So with that said.  Have a productive week.

This Week in Astrology — New Moon in Sagittarius (2017)

Awakening you to the Archetypal Movement during the week ahead.  The purpose of this blog is to make you aware of the energy available astrologically, for the purpose of spiritual and personal development.

On December 18th, 2017 we will be experiencing a New Moon in Sagittarius.  The New Moon occurs when the Sun and the Moon come into conjunction.

This conjunction will be at 26 degrees Sagittarius, representing the Flag-Bearer, the one who openly promotes an idea or value and becomes the symbol for it.  The New Moon phase represents the beginning of the moon cycle, a time to set intentions.  What idea do you represent or want to represent, and want to become a symbol for?

Sagittarius represents a direction, it is a fire sign, meaning it is an energetic symbol.  Do you trust the conditions around you will facilitate the growth you seek?   A deeper sense of knowing has to be utilized during this time.  Don’t involve yourself in situations you are not sure of, deal with people your not sure of, or go places your not sure of.  Not to scare you but to remind you to go with doing the right thing.  Even in situations that are unknown, if you are not fascinated or curious by it, take a pause.

This New Moon will be touched by Saturn which will be close by at 29 degrees Sagittarius.  This allows us the ability to implement new functional and critical changes to our forever growing spiritual development.  You can allow this energy to shoot you into new heights based on your discipline or burn you down due to stagnation.

The current New Moon in Sagittarius will be trine Uranus in Aries.  The “Great Awakener” Uranus will be triggered with this new moon allowing you to tap into ancient power sources to shoot you through this Sagittarius New Moon.  Understanding your personal freedom, your inner revolutionary, and your divine genius and let these things shine through.  One can hope for these aspects to reveal themselves and unfold over the next 28-day cycle.  This New Moon taps into ancestral energy as well as past life energy.  Trusting in this wishing well within yourself will pull you past what anybody has to say or think about you.  This energy is about freedom and raising you above the levels of fear and envy that may plague you.

This is a very deep time, yet it is a very energetic time.  One should be pursuing something within themselves if one has any questions.  The cues you get from self should inspire you to act in some form or fashion.  Why are you here?  Dealing with this New Moon one has to create the environment for success.  The mental environment.  The thoughts you keep are like your landscaping of your mind.  Be mindful not to ingest criticism or negative energy, just know where you get your cues from.  With proper probing, research, and discipline the answers are not far as you would normally think, all one would have to do is simply aim in the direction you desire.

777 Chakra Workshop — Crown Chakra

 

The Sahasrara Chakra or better known as the Crown Chakra is the last of the seven primary Chakras in Hindu Tantric thought.  Translated in Sanskrit as “thousand petaled lotus”.

The Sahasrara Chakra is a purely philosophical concept of yourself.  It is the realization of being completely obsolete and what it truly means.  It has no substance, it is above all experience, it is called Nirvana.  Nirvana is just the feeling of being quenched or a flame being blown out, completeness or satisfaction.  When one is complete with the world and has nothing else to prove only then can one reach a balanced Crown Chakra.  We are accessing our supramental consciousness, our consciousness that is well above our normal thought,  this is a form of pure consciousness.  The Sahasrara Chakra is the origin of all other chakras, tapping into this energy represents a form of married life, between you and the Self.  An understanding that there is no separation between you and the Self (Soul, God within).  The pure consciousness of you is conceptual, meaning it is abstract, meaning it only exists as an idea, the pure You is not real at all.

“Intuition does not denote something contrary to reason, but something outside of the province of reason.”

“Intuition (is) perception via the unconscious.”

— Carl Jung

The Crown Chakra is located on the top of our head is our direct connection to the collective unconscious.  Every thought, idea, concept exists within the collective unconscious.  The Crown Chakra is the channel to this unconscious information without effort.  It gives us access to higher states of consciousness and we open up to our perceptions beyond our personal line of sight and vision.

If the Ajna Chakra is the marriage or the union of the Soul and the Self then the Sahasrara Chakra is the actual marriage life, how we proceed as a whole person.  We begin to understand ourselves as a whole person, not as a slave to this physical life.  It does not mean we withdraw from physical life, it means we enjoy physical life fully, as God in Man.

JungModel

The Ego is removed from the Inner World and our unconscious motivators.  Once we elevate our consciousness from the Ego, we have an objective view of ourselves and what motivates us.  We remove the destructive motivators and enhance that which is within us that makes us enjoy life.  Up until this point, one may feel as though we want to change but there is something inside of us that does not want to change.  That is the Ego, the Ego does not have any consciousness outside of the outer world and it is fixated on building sandcastles in a rainstorm.  In the Crown Chakra, we are fixated on our inner world and being completely in the moment.  As we discussed the outer world is completely illusionary and conceptual, no different from the inner world.  This world is made for us to create it how we see fit, the creation of the world begins with the inside and ends on the inside.  If we are preoccupied with the outer world, then we are at the mercy of external events.  When we live in the inner world, Crown Chakra, we are at the mercy of our personal perception, and we also realize that we are in control of that perception.
