6/20 ~ Summer Solstice is the MidPoint in the Annual Solar Cycle, bringing another turn of the Wheel, the peak power of the *Light* before it surrenders, moving toward true completion of that which was seeded at Winter Solstice. Permanently opposite each other, eternally balancing and re-balancing … integrating and re-integrating the *Life-Death-Life Cycle*. These Sacred Seasons represent the time of year we should focus on the balance and integration of Light/Darkness ~ Yin/Yang ~ Feminine/Masculine ~ Inner/Outer ~ Cancer/Capricorn, which adds personal & professional as well as public & private.
Searching for “different ways” (Gemini) or “truer answers” (Sagittarius) … May I remind you that as a “human” you are dual by nature (Gemini) … and yet, so much MORE! (Sagittarius) Add “human” to “Being” and now you are *Multi-Dimensional*. I find it far more useful these days to look at the energies AND their polar opposites to get a more balanced understanding of what I am experiencing. And beyond that, I notice that I’ve been reminding people almost constantly that “life has become an ‘AND’ … not an either/or”. You have to multi-task to get anything accomplished and/or completed these days. Why is that? Because, you are simultaneously: dying and being born anew; leaving the past behind and moving toward an unknown future; releasing and acquiring on a multitude of levels. You, my multi-dimensional friend, have many layers to your Being which are being activated and/or shifted in dramatic and permanent ways.
This month you will have to take many deep breaths to maintain your equilibrium. The pressure is intense and the speed of which information is coming at you, is continuing to increase. Always keep in the back of your mind, if you cannot control it, release it to the Universe … and if you CAN control it, then this (whatever is activating your “control” or “survival” buttons) is just a reminder to inhale back your own authority and your personal power to choose … your power to change your mind and thus, your circumstances. In the instant you commit to your choice, change can occur.
On May 13th, Jupiter (Truth/Story/Expansion) enters Pisces (Oneness/Surrender/Completion/Womb/Development) beginning the completion of a 12-year Collective Cycle (and personal Cycle for those with Jupiter in Virgo/Pisces/Gemini/Sag). Think back to 2010 – 12-years ago, what were you trying to do that perhaps you or the world was not quite ready for? Are you ready and supported now?
Hopefully, you took advantage of the Aries/Mars energy to define, in detail, what it is that you “desire” in various areas of your life. Now you have access to potent Taurean energy to build the foundation which will support your goals. You have to know what you want and be willing to work for it, then the Universe will respond in equal measure. How you spend your resources, energy, time and money, shows the Universe where your true values lie. Venus demands that we define what we truly value – not what we “say” we value … but what we really and truly value.
Taurus/Scorpio energy brings awareness of your deepest values, renewal of your priorities and access to the power to co-create your world. Taurus time (April/May) is an annual opportunity to seed the *Garden* of your life … while Scorpio time (Oct/Nov) brings the annual gifts of power, magic and purification. Working consciously with these energies gives you a chance to truly ground your Highest intentions and bring them into ‘form’ to serve the greater good, which will attract blessings beyond your wildest imagination … *IF* you maintain integrity and do the work! Earth energy requires getting real ~ getting serious ~ and often, getting dirty! It is a chance to co-create, contribute and allow Great Spirit to breathe life into the seeds you plant at this time.
As the Sun enters Aries ~ Spring Equinox Initiates a new Solar/astrological year. This is a *Universal* RE-Set Button. Clean Slate. New Beginning. This is an Annual Activation for everyone, but for the Cardinal Family, it can be a little more intense & personal … Aries Initiation ~ Libra Integration ~ Cancer/Capricorn Test/Growth. Everyone has Aries ruling some area of life and this is the area of life that gets activated at this time every year. Do you know your rhythm for this? How do you feel every Spring?
As we enter the current Pisces energy, many people will be feeling more sensitive than usual, picking up many different kinds of information via all six senses. Over-sensitivity that disrupts your flow and takes you away from your center is one thing, but a better way to think of this energy is to ponder the concept of how sound penetrates when you put your head under water. It is likely the same sensation as when you were in the womb of your mother’s belly. You actually “feel” the sounds more than you “hear” them, you “sense” all the activity around you. That is the essence of NOW. And like back then, you are picking up a multitude of vibrations ~ hearing, feeling and sensing the world around you at this time.
Pisces is the conclusion of the astrological year and brings us all full circle, back to the womb, where sometimes you may feel uncomfortable, unable to move naturally, cranky because of the limitations ~ but at the same time, remaining safely behind the scenes as you fully develop the “new you” – this is vital to ensure a safe, healthy birth of this “new life” whether it be a creative project, a desired goal or YOU! All seeds germinate in the darkness and the infant stages are the most delicate.
This month’s energy helps you focus on expressing your innate uniqueness, on all levels. It is also the energy of experimentation – try some new way of doing an old thing. Try to get an understanding of the bigger picture, see your connection to the whole or work on planning your long-term goals. Sometimes we get too bogged down in mundane matters and we lose sight of why we started doing the things we’re doing in the first place. Avoid seeking others’ approval, as most people think differently and may not understand your truth and purpose, which is none of their concern to begin with.
