The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. – Albert Einstein
When someone says Astrology what comes to your mind? A Crystal Ball, someone telling you that you must wait until this or that? A very difficult language to learn and something not intended for the average person?
Do you think that you are cursed by being a certain sign? OR Blessed by being a certain sign?
OR do you think? Astrology is the times of the year, and signs are seasons and the energies of the seasons manifest attributes and qualities of that season, so when a person is born during that season they have these energies within them? Can you look outside in December and recognize in the mid of a terrible snow storm that underneath the ground there is activity and living energy holding back until the weather clears.
Do you look at spring and all the things in bloom and think that nothing can push outwards forever and fall will come and the energy of the plants will move inwards, it will be a time of harvest and we are asked to move inwards also? Well, this is astrology, this energy of seasons and we all carry the cycle of the seasons but.
Or do you think think, I was given Tools which perhaps I chose, or sometimes were chosen for me by what I wanted to do this incarnation? And if you think that those tools are activated during major planetary shifts or things happening in the sky, and that your are being activated as is the whole world right now. Then you are correct.
But These activations are only doorways, and like all doorways you can choose not to open door number 1 but instead door number 2 or 3 or 4. Astrology exists only to tell you which door has the TREASURE behind and what that treasure is, it and maybe you need to pick another door to learn that lesson or use that energy, which is just fine also.
Well, Can you Imagine is the theme of this last year is not it? Could you imagine the last election here in the United States and a African American President? Could you imagine the Town Halls going on Now, people talking about insurance which they fear would allow the government to end their lives? Could you imagine that people would allow that to happen? Could you imagine the Berlin wall falling and the end of Communism in Russia, Could you have imagined housing prices falling, changing jobs at over 50 years old, making a new life for yourself when you thought the world was a firm and sound foundation under you ? Could you imagine that you could be a teacher to others. Could you imagine that you could forgive and heal the past?
Could you imagine world relief organizations and the smile foundation and so much wonderful things happening as we assist others we will never know or meet? Can you Imagine that people would be using the word Manifesting instead of getting or working for? Could you imagine that people would dream that they could be more than their education, or station in life, or be even more than they could be? Could you imagine ?????
Imagine in Astrology is called Neptune or Pisces energy. Neptune is the planet of Illusion or Great illumination and the doorway to being open to or Manifesting more than even we thought possible.
AND maybe we have not imagined the next step yet which is why things seem in such disarray in the world. And maybe we have not even begun to see the new world which is opening around us. A new world which in Astrology is called Capricorn and Pisces. Both of these energies are the energy of WINTER, things moving and growing beneath the earth, much growth but much of it not obvious to us yet.
OK ::: now here comes the Astrology and the energy which will assist us to get that job, Find that mate, find that perfect place to live, FIND OURSELVES more than we thought we could be … If only you can imagine being open, receptive and patient. (woops there I went with a bad word did not I?)
Right now We have several planets which are retrograde, this is the rather stuck energy and things not moving as you thought they should. WE began with the beginning of some real shifts on Sunday September 6, 2009 as Mercury the planet of ideas and communications began its Retrograde (apparent backwards motion) Mercury backwards or retrogrades 3 to 4 times per year and though much fuss is made, this is a natural occurrence and nothing to fear.
And this mercury retrograde will be about relationships since it happens at 6 degrees of Libra The Sabian Symbol for this is "A man watches his ideals taking a concrete form before his inner vision" This Sabian symbol is about "CAN YOU IMAGINE" and what you Imagine taking form.
On September 20th as Mercury backs into the sign of Virgo we are going to be looking at what CONCRETE earthly form we have built and being given the opportunity of (rethinking which is the great GIFT of Mercury retrograde) When Mercury moves direct on the 29th at 22 degrees of Virgo we are being asked to begin to build what we discovered during this Mercury retrograde.
Please Use this Mercury retrograde carefully as it is a preview of what Saturn the planet of accountability, karma, duty, obligations, and hard work will be doing in January 2010 as It retrogrades in Libra back into Virgo. We are getting a dry run so to speak with this energy so use it carefully and recognize, re apply, reconstitute, revise, resources, reconnect, repair, replan, re-envision, reacess, are all Mercury retrograde tools for us to use.
NOW THE ACTION Plan for "Can you imagine"
September 11, 2009 Pluto the planet which is about the evolutionary journey of the soul begins its forward motion after a 5 month retrograde (apparent backwards motion) Things will begin to move and we will all begin to have a greater sense of the next step. Pluto Moves forward at 0 degrees of Capricorn activating all the Cardinal early degrees, Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorns and all of us have those 4 signs in areas of our charts (our maps)
Pluto will remain in the sign of Capricorn for the next 22 years asking us all to be the Best we can be not only for ourselves but for others and to transform the world as well as our own personal worlds. Capricorn is the Mountain Goat, climbing higher and higher but you never see a Mountain Goat without others nearby. We climb personally higher and by doing this assist others to do the same is Pluto's Message in Capricorn. AND not to mention Capricorn is the sign which rules the RULES and Government, so we are changing that along the way also.
October 12, 2009 Jupiter the planet of I BELIEVE moves forward at 17 degrees of Aquarius. You may remember Jupiter, Chiron and Neptune joined this year for some Magical energy to assist us to heal the past. These 3 planets joined Election Day 2009, May 27, 2009 and will join for the final time in your incarnation this lifetime on 12/21/2009. So, the show now begins and we are asked to SHOW THAT WE CAN BELIVE and have FAITH
On January 17, 2010 Jupiter will enter the sign of PISCES for the first time in 12 years on June 6, 2010 Jupiter will enter the sign of Aries for the first time in 12 years and Join with Uranus the planet of change. Uranus enters Aries on may 27th 2010 for the first time in 84 years. During this Jupiter into Aries period Jupiter will back up (retrograde) into Pisces again 9/8/2010 and then move back to Aries on 1/22/2011 until 6/4/2011 when it enters Taurus.
October 29, 2009 Saturn the planet of discipline, duty and karma enters the sign of Libra for the first time in 29 and years years. It is time to PARTNER up, not only romantic but business, living and otherwise. How many of us can afford to advertise, hold a personal office or do most anything alone anymore? The energy of Saturn into Libra says. You do not have to be in this alone, all you have to do is get out … do the Work Saturn always asks of us and meets new people and find your connections
October 30, 2009 Chiron the healer of wounds moves direct at 21 degrees of Aquarius and requests us to get on with it and get busy if there are still issues not only within our own lives but within the world and get them healed
Chiron will enter the sign of Dreams, illusion and believing on April 20, 2010 as it moves for the first time in 56 years into the sign of Pisces. This energy will assist with healing and doing some really magical things for us all … at least for all of us who can imagine …
November 4, 2009 Neptune the final of this magical trio moves direct at 23 degrees of Aquarius. Neptune's job is to create the Dream, to help us IMAGINE what could be. And now Imagination, beliefs and healing are moving forwards and increasing whatever it is that you believe. Good or bad, we are asked to recognize the time of MANIFESTION is almost here, where we can create with our ideas and thoughts, so we better get busy and begin to think of what we want to happen, right?
Neptune will enter the Sign of Pisces April 04, 2011 for the first time in 115 years.
On 12/1/2009 Uranus the planet of Change moves direct in the attentimes confusing sign of Pisces at 22 degrees. Uranus has created an energy this last few years of us wanting change but not exactly sure what form that change needs to take. Can you imagine Change without form? This is what we have had and that energy has been blocked the last few months.
Not to worry, this planet moves into the sign of Aries May 27, 2010 and we are going to be ON THE ROAD with changes happening faster than you might believe.
On June 6, 2010 Jupiter will enter Aries and with Change mixed with Belief in the passionate and sometimes impulsive sign of Aries we now have the power to really create whatever we put passion and energy into.
These outer planets will retrograde and back into the signs they are in now at least once during 2010 and you will be reading lots more about those changes in the 2010 articles I will be writing for the website. (this is probably already more than many of you are ready to process)
BUT I am called right now to tell you all that as these outer planets (DESTINY BUILDERS)
Move from Change loving Aquarius into Dreamy Pisces, it does not mean we will be less busy,
It means we will be CREATING FROM WITHIN what we are thinking of, worrying over, dreaming of, and Imagining …
SO … what is inside you now that needs to be eliminated so that you can create your dream? What inside you is going to become stronger over this next year? Do you need to use this mercury retrograde to repattern yourself? TO reconnect to God / Goddess / Great spirit and ask
For the assistance you need?
Are you ready to step out and create what you imagine? Can you Imagine that world? It is coming, ready or not. Where Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces and Aries are within your own personal astrology charts are .. BIG SHIFTS and changes are coming …
What are you willing to imagine? GET going and DREAM BIG, we all are going to have a Magic carpet ride, so lets all imagine
GOOD FOR ALL, a world where there is no war, a world where there is enough food for everyone, and a world where we are all full of the knowledge that we are LOVED by source and can find love of our own fellow travelers upon this path if we are open to imagining what it feels like and could be .. YOU know this is possible …. And with Neptune and Pisces, it could be SO MUCH MORE wonderful than my mind mind can imagine right now …
So … recapping ::: 9/6 to 9/29 Mercury retrograde reconnect with source and others
9/11 Pluto Direct, get ready to be better and help others be the same
10/12 Jupiter direct BELIEVE and have faith
10/30 Chiron direct If you have healing to do, get on with it
11/4 Neptune direct IMAGINE
12/1 Uranus direct, change moves onwards, imagine the changes you want
12/21 Jupiter, Neptune and CHIRON join for the final time in Aquarius
12/31 HAPPY NEW YEARS EVE ECLIPSE in the signs of Capricorn and Cancer
