Dark o the Moon – Aquarius

The period of three days surrounding any New Moon is a time to purge, cleanse and renew ourselves and our dreams, so that New dreams may unfold. It’s time to prepare for the show that comes in Springtime.
~Pay attention to what your body and dreams are telling you.
~Meditate in order to explore your psychedelic inner landscape.
~Break the ice, go deep into the dark of your psyche to uncover truths shining under the waters of consciousness.
~Embrace those flames which enhance your gifts and nurture your soul, whatever that may be.
~Pamper yourself with aromatherapy to recharge your batteries during winter’s down-time.
~Relax into the stream of time and allow worries to flow past you, as you heal within.
~Lie back and Allow all of life’s goodness to come to you.
~Smile as you let ‘Calgon’ take you away!

Saturday’s New Moon is 21* Aquarius. The Sabian symbol is a disappointed woman confronted with crisis…but she realizes it’s just a temporary setback. She faces tests of inner strength to learn compassion for herself as well as strategic lessons in self-care. To confront the unknown with courage is a lesson we all face at one time or another. Discovering what best serves our individual needs is an imperative lesson in soul-survival. Don’t think you are being greedy or selfish now. It’s important to honor the temple of the body with conscientious, routine maintenance and to look to our subconscious for guidance as to how that’s done. Without guilt or judgment, do the things that feed your soul and make it sing!

Creating a new self-image would be a perfect Aquarian thing to do. Update your worn-out wardrobe with something hot pink or magenta, find a new piece of funky silver jewelry that expresses your wildness, color your hair purple and let your freak flag fly! Sequins, sparkles and self-declarations are what Aquarian energies beg us to be; Uniquely ourselves!

Any New Moon offers us a time to shed that which no longer serves us, be it ideas, practices or people. So stay fresh, stay ahead of your former circles (if they hold you back), and discover new people who will be more than willing to see you succeed! They are out there, just waiting for you to show up! Take a risk, step out and greet them. Aquarian energies abounding now encourage you to step out of your comfort zone and break free of the chains that have kept you earth-bound by societal norms. Do what you must in order to be authentically and uniquely YOU! Surprise yourself! As SNL’s Stephon would say; Aquarians, “they have everything…!” 🙂

Caring for all of humanity, especially our weakest links, through anonymous, idealistic actions are ways that Aquarian energies are expressed in their highest frequency. Keep your spirit eyes open and look for the glitter in everyone’s soul. It’s there. Maybe your smile will bring it out of them!

At the New Moon in Aquarius place silver on your altar, burn pine incense and purple or silver candles, hold your intention to be true to the new you, and imbue it with the power of your will~ combine it with your pending needs, including that it harm no one, and send your intention out into the realm of Akasha – that dimension of thought where all manifest waits to be borne.
Hold firm your intent. Believe. And prepare to be Amazed!
A New You is waiting to be Born, Sparkle and Shine!
Namaste Brothers & Sisters~

Meaningful Work

Meaningful work in the Age of Aquarius. Today the Sun is in the sign of Aquarius and Neptune goes retrograde for the next 14 years.
Its a momentous moment. Hhmm, a bit of redundancy there?

Neptune is one of the outer planets, and influences things like psychic ability, dreams, illusions/delusions, water and oil on a generational level. As it goes retrograde, (seen on Earth as an apparent backwards movement in the skies), it becomes time for us as humanity to review and plan for new ways to implement solutions that serve the greater good! We need to especially find ways to stop using oil and protect our water before it is too late.

The Harvard Business Review recently ran an article that gave advice to people in college as to how to go about gaining personal happiness and financial reward…something we’d all like to know a little more about in these times. I’d add that the most rewarding of ways to live ones life is to have it based on a strong ethical background. Think of the uber-wealthy who give much of their energy, time and money to charitable causes, and you will understand what I mean.
The major points the HBR suggested were;

*Travel. Nice, if you can afford it…travel in a way that you can connect to the local people and discover insights to local ways of life.

*Develop situational awareness. Find something that needs to be fixed or solved in the place where you are.
*Look into problems that affect you in a very personal way. Use your individual Passions for a Purpose greater than yourself.
*Connect with people working on big problems. Use the internet and personal connections to network; discover more than you might have wondered about, and use this information in positive ways to both expand your area of expertise – as well as experience. This makes you more valuable a commodity as a thinking worker and allows for greater level of opportunity to come your way!

*Happiness comes from the intersection of what you love,
what you’re good at, and what the world needs. This is the big sticker. Maybe you know yourself well enough to realize your strengths and avoid your weaknesses…maybe you know you want to be of service, but don’t know how to get there…then there’s the sticking point;
What is it that serves to excite you, interest you- what are the causes that are greater than yourself that you feel called to and are worthy enough for you to dedicate your life and time to serving?
Discover this and you’re on your way!

Some of these ‘big ticket items’ are Global warming, Financial equity, Sexual Equality, Human Rights- large areas of concern that may either need to be stopped, healed or repaired individually and globally. These don’t necessarily need to be in the area of your expertise, in fact, many people feel more rewarded by finding a passion that has always been ‘with them’ but they put aside, thinking there was ‘no money’ in it…..and took a different career path. Now is the time to change course!

Pluto is in Capricorn, and will be for another 20 years or so, which means that the old ways of doing things~ and old, patriarchal traditions in society are crumbling in order to make way for the new – which will serve everyone.

Everyone can help: in our own ways, in our own circles, in our own worlds.

This is the Age of Aquarius; WE ARE the generations of today and tomorrow, that will serve humanity and even out the playing field between rich and poor, the haves and the have nots, in unique and electrifying ways! Welcome to the 21st century and the New Age~

Be a carrier of Love and Light and Serve Others.
Its the most direct path toward happiness and success that there is!

Aquarian Full Moon

The full moon in Aquarius occurs about now, 10:00 Mountain time, 13 August 2012.
It overpowered seeing too many Perseid meteorites last night…maybe next year the light of the moon will be less intense and share the night sky~
The Aquarius energy that abounds today is all about groups, teams and the brotherly love of humanity, the impulse to fight for what’s fair, social justice and human rights. Aquarius rules sci-fi,  quirkiness, idealized worlds and the right to radical individualism, objectivism,  reason, and the mind’s true liberation.
As a fixed AIR sign, Aquarius encourages us to open our minds to options never considered before; so embrace your weirdness, dress up, wear a mask, get your freak on!
Ayn Rand, Louis Carroll, Jules Verne and Alice Cooper all exemplify this energy~
This month Venus is opposite the moon- sitting right next to the Sun, so this “what about me” energy is compounded. Our own ego is demanding our own needs be met and pushing against the energy of the Full Moon; so projecting your own agenda, especially toward passion, will only cause hurt feelings on both sides. It’s a perfect time to have a heart-to-heart with your primary partners to clear the air, and establish parameters that will benefit everyone concerned.
People with Aquarius energies probably call everyone nicknames like buddy and sweetie… their convivial social energy is platonic, playful and goofy and decidedly NOT romantic.
So it’s best to take objective steps back and disengage from emotionality, to see where you’ve been over-reacting and over-reaching regarding love and affection in your closest relationships…..
Even if you feel you’ll DIE without that special someone’s attentions, or receive a specific outcome on an important situation you’re involved in – practice Non-Attachment now – LET GO of your expectations, forget past wrongs, and learn to take yourself lightly.
What’s needed most when we are so ‘hooked into’ outcomes is to Visualize the Positive outcome you wish to see in your life and hold onto that energy. Release any anxiety or negativity, otherwise, by the Law of Attraction, the negative will be drawn to you.
Learn to accept only the good! 
That bears repeating, Learn to accept only the good!
Live – Love – Laugh … it will heal all matter of things.
I have been deeply drawn to think about how to get my social groups more organized; to consider and validate everyone’s comfort zone in participating in cooperative ventures…especially social networking and developing deeper connections via salons and study groups, so I’m going to take the week to Re-search and investigate the technology behind this idea, while Mercury is still retrograde.
What would the perfect world look like if YOU could create it?
With Pluto in Capricorn, the power is already moving toward destruction of old patriarchal systems; government overthrow and reformation of society, financial restructuring and possible a barter economy.
What skills do you have that could be bartered?
What would your part be in creating a more perfect union or harmony in your life?

Any and all wild ideas are welcome and ready to be heard at this point in time. Think outside the box – Lighten up – Open up and let the sunshine in~

Namaste’
