Tonight Saturn moved from Sagittarius into Capricorn where it will remain until March of 2020. Saturn rules Capricorn so it feels very comfortable in this sign. Comfy or not, it's still about doing our work. Climbing that hill or mountain that represents our Soul and our purpose for being here on the planet at this time. The New Moon in Sagittarius a few days ago is asking us to dig deep and get clear about our purpose and the vision we have for the future we desire. And it's about more than a car we want or our favorite team winning a championship, etc. It's about the kind of world we want to create and live in. It's about the way we want to interact and live with one another. It's about how we handle diversity, and caring for one another and the planet. It's about creating a world where the foundations we live from in all areas (the economy, education, care of families, care of our elders, care of Mother Earth and all Her children, caring and sharing of resources, etc.) come from our hearts - deeply within our hearts. So deeply that we project the heart and soul of the Divine into the world and it manifests. We have to do our work here, too. So as the New Moon asks us to find, nurture, and love this vision, Saturn in Capricorn asks us to each do our work, our part in making this happen. It also asks us to do the work of dealing with resources in a caring way. To seek beyond the 3rd dimensional illusion and shine the truth outward and in all we do, say, think, feel, touch. And that truth is Love. Saturn gets a bad rap, but it really forces us to look at only what is real and true - and that is love. That we're all love, we all come from love, we're all connected by that sparkly sea of love. All of us everywhere in the vast multiverse and all the animals, plants, stones, water, air, etc.. So if you're feeling the squeeze from Saturn, instead of getting angry, or blaming Saturn for whatever, remember that the Divine multiverse is ALWAYS and ONLY working on our behalf with love, from love, for love. Ask what Saturn wants you to let go of that isn't love and doesn't come from that deep Divine Love. Ask what Saturn wants you to see with your heart. 💖
This New Moon in Sagittarius is a point of great power and magic. This is a moment we’ve been given before on the spiral of life and each time it has come into our collective consciousness it has more power than the time before. Each time we have been more awake, more aware and more in touch with our visions and purpose.
Now is the time to bravely envision, embrace, project outward in vision form what and who you are as a SOUL that is LOVE.
This time, however, the structure we’ve been living within is crumbling fast. And now it’s more important than ever to deeply and consciously connect with your heart and soul vision and purpose for being here, in this space and at this time in life. We are the visions, truth and love that we need to create the new structure in a world that is made from Divine Love. I see the image of clouds of love and light and light from the heart of the Universe being spun into yarn and cloth and those are the fabrics we work with to turn our visions into a world we want to live in and a world that is vibrationally and materially the world we long ago promised our children and future generations. I’ve seen our loved ones and other spirit beings on the other side creating these fabrics, sounds, colors, fragrances and now it’s time for us to draw them down into this realm and begin working with them.
How you work with them, how you create your visions and project them into this realm is up to you. There are as many ways to work with these energies as there are souls on this Earth. Listen to your Soul - it WILL tell you if you ask and sincerely desire to take the action that is yours to take.
We are entering a portal, a time where our dharma, our purpose, is being called to be grounded into this Earthly dimension to create a world that has been dreamed of while maintaining our faith, our joy in life, our desire for truth, our desire for light and love and a playful, happy of learning, creating, and being, and our deep, loving connection with the Earth.
We have the courage, the strength, the creativity, and the ability to “triage” if you will, or prioritize what is really real versus what is illusion. We know what we really need to do. And if you find yourself feeling scared, filled with anxiety and panic, remember to breathe, center in your heart and know that within that fear, anxiety and panic are your truths, your dreams, your gifts and wisdom. Sagittarius reminds that when we’re patient, when we speak truth with love and joy, then we’ve got this.
So dream big my friends. Dream beyond our 3rd dimensional illusion world. Sagittarius is our fire, our passion, our most joyful truth and our faith. Dream the magic, and know YOU ARE the magic!
This Mercury retrograde asks us to go beyond ego and personality. It offers us an incredible opportunity to live our lives in a more powerfully authentic spiritual way – to break through our egos and our 3rd dimensional personalities. If you haven't already been having ego busting experiences, you will. This is a perfect time to examine your behaviors, thoughts, feelings and ask yourself just how much is ego and how much is more authentic, heart centered behavior. The push is on to be living from a deeper place of integrity and honoring the words you speak from a higher spiritual place.
This Mercury retrograde also brings us a new awakening to an energy that has always been there, but we haven’t been able to see or incorporate into our ways of thinking. And that is…
The feminine balance to the masculine Mercury, (also known as Mercury’s Greek counterpart Hermes). That is the Goddess Iris. Iris represents communication from the gods and goddesses to others (like Mercury) as well as hope. Her symbol is the rainbow – hope and that joy we feel when we see a rainbow.
This Mercury retrograde is opening a door that has been blocked for a really long time. We’re now seeing the balancing of the masculine Mercury with the feminine Iris. Our thinking processes AND our communication processes are being opened to the infusion of Divine Feminine, compassion, healing, loving, acceptance and tolerance.
We’re no longer going to be able to limit communication to speaking, writing, listening. It will now include touch, healing touch, energy, love and compassion communicated through energy transference. It will also include the energy of words, spoken and written, being infused with this feminine balance and becoming more powerful, transformational and healing.
Saturn is conjunct this Mercury retrograde and is preparing to move from Sagittarius into Capricorn. Saturn has been asking us to really pinpoint our beliefs, our faith, our joyful energy output into the world, our optimism and love of others different than ourselves and our own “group”.
This beautiful fusion of the feminine with Mercury, combined with Saturn in Sagittarius at the last degree of Sagittarius, is the brilliant, shining collection of us having felt the joy in the in-between spaces even as we’ve been moving through some of the hardest times I remember. That joyfulness, the beautiful aspects of Sagittarius, are coming together now.
Mercury is giving us an opportunity to spend quiet time getting to know this new energy, so meditate, take quiet walks, sit outside under the Moon and stars at night in quiet contemplation, relax in a quiet bath or shower, light candles and just feel the peace. These will help you connect with the new feminine energies.
These kinds of activities will help us bring together all we’ve learned from the past 2-1/2 years with Saturn in Sagittarius, all the joyful gifts from Sagittarius, and ion, move into a new cycle of Saturn – in Capricorn – with love, compassion, more balanced living, so we can see the structures that are not able to withstand love, kindness, tolerance, the understanding that all is one.
We are entering a cycle of rebuilding. We begin this new cycle coming through a powerful and elevated Mercury retrograde period, as well as the energies of Yule. Spirit is gifting us with so much love, so much compassion, so much wisdom and a powerful, more balanced way of thinking. My hope is that we embrace all of this and create a fusion within our beings and between our beings, to create a new foundation and new structures in our world that area based on partnership, love, tolerance, compassion, kindness, justice, and wisdom from our hearts. Oh, and to lovingly embrace all the vibrant, gorgeous, healing shimmers of light and color we all are – everyone and everything – in this multiverse we are all a joyful part of.
