Aries – Mar 21 – Apr 20

Happy New Year.  It’s up, up and away this month as you set your peepers firmly on what tomorrow brings.  So ambitious and so publicly pushy right now, if you’re not careful you might put a few noses out of joint.  Not smart Rambo, because it is exactly these noses that you need to take you to the new heights you so desperately crave (and deserve of course).  Just don’t pretend to be something that you’re not and you’ll be sweet.

Jupiter astrology

On 21.12.12 a rare and intense planetary configuration known as a Yod (aka “Finger of Fate” or “Finger of God”) forms between Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto, enclosing the Earth in a tense and powerful gravitational force field.  Resembling an arrowhead and with Jupiter (who won’t be this close to the Earth again until 2021) at the tip, this tightly stretched configuration points a brilliant, bi-polar energy at one of the brightest fixed stars in our galaxy, Aldebaran (aka ‘the Hunter’, “Bull’s Eye”” or “Star of Illumination”).

This very old, very large ‘royal’ sun situated approximately 70 light years from Earth is the fiery eye of the constellation Taurus.  Extremely powerful, this energy illuminates the higher consciousness and releases through the trans-penetrating power of the mind… destroying all obstacles in its path.  But the key to manifesting this energy positively is integrity.  Only with courage and honesty can the limiting power…

Mercury Retrograde – Nov 6th to Nov 26th November 5, 2012

November 6 to Novemeber 26th

Retrograde:  11/06 at 6:04 pm EST  (Election Day in USA)
Direct:  11/26 at 5:48 EST
Release: 12/13  (also the day of the New Moon)

Those most effected by Mercury Retrograde:
Virgos and Geminis  (Sun sign and Rising Sign)

Mercury rules all types of communication, including listening, speaking, learning, reading, editing, researching, negotiating, selling, and buying. Mercury also rules all formal contracts and agreements, as well as important documents such as book manuscripts or term papers, agreements, deeds, contracts, leases, wills, and so forth. Included under this planet’s domain are all types of code, including computer codes, as well as transportation, shipping, and travel. When this planet retrogrades, these areas tend to get scrambled or spin out of control. Why does this happen? When a planet retrogrades, astrologically it is in a resting or sleeping state. Therefore, while Mercury naps, the activities that it governs don’t have the benefit of a well-functioning, wide-awake planet to supervise them. Expect a certain degree of pandemonium to ensue!(1)

I wrote a whole blog on this back in July (Mercury Retrograde – July 15 to Aug 8), seeing as its a subject that I find very important, not just because I’m a Virgo that lives with a Gemini, and I was born during a retrograde, because its something that even the most 3-D person can take a look and realize that these time periods always seem to have a similar effect on everyone.

Btw, there’s a Full Solar Eclipse on 11/14, and a partial Lunar Eclipse on 11/28.  links to previously written info below…

Mercury Retrograde Meaning

Mercury goes retrograde and the traditional advice is “Don’t travel”“Don’t sign contracts”“Don’t marry” or “Don’t look at your computer or it will blow up!” But the whole Mercury retrograde cycle actually lasts eight weeks and happens three times, sometimes even four times in a year! That’s a long time to hide under the duvet and a real waste of a truly magical time. Mercury generally zips between two worlds, or rather, the two hemispheres of our brain. So during the retrograde period it is like Mercury has gone down into the Underworld. In the realm closer to spirit we become more right-brain orientated. It is dark, so other senses are heightened. We will feel extra sensitive here, psychic even. Everything will seem hyper-real… you will notice things you had overlooked before. This will prompt you to re-evaluate, renovate, re-invent, re-form, and reinvent. It’s true you might have to redo things, because Mercury will hit the same degree three times, but what this transit won’t let you do is to go into autopilot.

There are danger spots though. When Mercury is stationing retrograde we are at the wobbly stage where we are likely to slip up, make mistakes, and misread another’s communications. But once we are over the threshold and into the Underworld, we can safely go about out business knowing we are in another realm. The same goes for when it is stationing direct – give our brain a few days to adjust back to solar thinking. Whichever houses Mercury retrogrades in, will be your Underworld zone. Here you will question everything. It will make you jittery about signing contracts, because you will be constantly thinking, “Is this what I really want?”. Before the retrograde, is a good time to finish off those Solar left-brain projects and gather information to bring down into your cave at its retrograde point. Then you can slow things down, let yourself be taken into other dimensions, try on different filters, experiment, shine a light on your demons, then recharge and reboot.(2)

Giving some meaning to the Autumnal Equinox – Sept 22/23 September 20, 2012

The Spiritual Meaning of the Autumn Equinox

An Egyptian adornment worn over the chest which shows the duality between the rival gods Horus on one side (the god of light), and Seth on the other (the god of darkness), amidst other symbols
The autumn equinox is a mysterious time. It marks an essential passage in the spiritual work that is often overlooked, misunderstood, and mistaken as dark and heretical.

The autumn equinox is the time of balance between day and night, before night takes over and brings the coming winter, a time of darkness and death. This duality between light and dark exists within humanity, and in the work of spiritual transformation. All things must die before they can be born, all spiritual ascent requires descent first, and all those who long for light must firstly face their own inner darkness and overcome it.

We will look at the esoteric meaning of the autumn equinox, remnants of which can barely be found in lasting traditions from the times of ancient people’s who celebrated it and knew of its real significance, and how it is still relevant to those wishing to do a spiritual work and celebrate it in tune with the rhythms of the cosmos today. Generally, the more ancient the site or tradition, the closer it is to the spiritual message.

What is the Autumn / Fall Equinox?
Equinoxes occur twice a year—in spring and autumn, when night and day are approximately equal lengths, which is when the sun’s path crosses the equator.

Interestingly, the sun enters the astrological sign of Libra at the autumn equinox, which is the sign of the scales and of balance. The glyph for Libra represents the setting sun, expressing the balance between night and day.

The autumn equinox heralds a time of growing darkness, as after it the sun continues to descend and diminish (as it has since the summer solstice) so that the nights now become increasingly longer than the days, bringing the change of seasons and the cold and death of winter.

The Larger Spiritual Context of the Autumn Equinox

The meaning of the autumn equinox is intertwined with that of the four points of the year (the two solstices at winter and summer, and the spring equinox), which each mark stages in the esoteric work that begin anew each year, and form a symbolic cross in the wheel of the year and in the sky, with the sun (Christ) at the center.

The solstices and equinoxes are to do with the journey and transitions of the sun, and the sun represents the Christ, a both universal and personal spiritual force whose birth or incarnation into a spiritually prepared person, has been enacted symbolically by enlightened figures throughout time, such as Jesus, Dionysus, Horus, Mithras, Odin, Krishna etc. and by the sun and stars in their movements in relation to the earth every year. This is why the lives of these great figures follow similar events which correspond with astrological movements e.g. the birthday of all these deities is celebrated at the winter solstice, and their death and resurrection at the spring equinox. This is no coincidence, but part of the greater design of the universe, revealing the process of spiritual awakening to humanity.

In times now lost, different groups of people understood this profound teaching and message that literally comes from above, and knew that the outer drama enacted in the heavens, was actually an inner representation of a human becoming spiritual, with the sun representing the spiritual aspect that incarnates within a person.

Here today, a group of people still exists who understand the eternal esoteric teaching, and will celebrate the autumn equinox in tune with its real meaning, as it has been done since ancient times.

The Spiritual Meaning of the Autumn / Fall Equinox

Traditionally, the autumn equinox is a celebration of the harvest, as it is when summer has finished giving its fruits, which are collected in preparation for the winter. But there are other indicators given by the most ancient sacred sites that mark the autumn equinox. Descending passages into subterranean pits, lit by the star of “Satan” at midnight. Seven-scaled feathered serpents of light descending giant pyramids. A giant pyramid aligned to the equinoxes built on a cave symbolizing the underworld. Seven giant statues facing the sunset that leads to growing darkness.

What was known to the ancients, and is known by mystics here today, is the part darkness plays in the work of spiritual transformation. Those in the orthodox superstitiously fear it, and many in the new age completely ignore it. But at the autumn equinox it can be found in the cycles of nature, and the alignment of our planet – and traces of it can be found here and there in ancient legends and myths that have become distorted over time.

Preparing the Way for the Spiritual to Be Born Within
The autumn equinox is when the initiate, the person working towards enlightenment, must descend with the aid of their divine mother (the female warrior goddess) into the underworld, chaos, or abyss, to fight the egos and evil within, to emerge with the light and knowledge gained in darkness and later ascend. Here it is Lucifer, the light-bearer, who is the tempter and helper in the work to incarnate the Christ. It is a time of sacrifice and death where the seed within a person must die (symbolized by the wheat, rice, barley, or corn), forming the basis for the divine alchemical sexual fire that the divine mother uses to destroy egos, before the Christ can be born within a person. The autumn equinox is a time of preparing the way for the spiritual to be born at the winter solstice.

The symbols of this preparation can be found throughout the ancient world, in the cosmos, and indicate what to go through to spiritually awaken.

The spiritual meaning of the autumn equinox has been obscured with time, much more than the other three events in the wheel of the year. This is because as the spiritual work was lost, the esoteric meaning became vague and must have seemed to represent sinister, evil forces. Thus the symbols were given other meanings and turned into other things in the way that Santa Claus symbolizes Christmas day. Parts moved to cross quarter days and meanings changed into celebrations of the dead, of evil spirits, harvest festivals, bonfires, sacrifices, drunkenness, and debauchery. Fortunately the pre-neolithic Atlanteans left the message of the real meaning in the architecture of sites such as the Great Pyramids, which were echoed in the cosmos and survived in sketchy details through myths, legends, and religions throughout history.

SaLuSa – 08/20/2012 August 20, 2012

Filed under: Ascension,Channelings,Conscious Ideas,SaLusa,Stars — herkimerlove @ 3:05 pm

For you the greatest discovery is that your consciousness levels have risen quite considerably in the last few years. Knowledge is useful but not in itself your passport to Ascension. Through living the highest concept you have of yourself, you are setting your goals to become that which is your destiny. You are also helping raise the levels of the Mass Consciousness, and that attracts even more souls so that in the end a large number of you ascend. You will also find that you can rise above the pull or attraction of the lower energies. They are no longer part of you when you seek a higher expression of yourself. What did satisfy you in this lifetime is no longer necessarily fulfilling, as you have become more sensitive to that which is creating discord or discontent.

You will continue to disassociate yourself from the lower vibrations, and that can also affect the nature of your friendship with other people. You will seek those with whom you find harmony and can share your outlook on life. You will understand that it is a natural separation, as you find it easier to share your joy and happiness with like kinds. The third dimension has long exalted the “joys” of drugs, alcohol and sex, all of which when excessively used become highly addictive and lower your vibrations. The dark Ones are aware of this and encourage such indulgence, as it takes you away from the real issues in your life that you should be concentrating upon. Certainly you came into life to experience, but many of you have become locked into the lower aspects and do not move on.

As you know by now, like attracts like and you draw to you those souls that are very likely at a similar level to yourself. The choice often is whether you pull each other further down, or are able to uplift each other. Naturally there are karmic issues often involved , but for every soul that has “fallen” there are always opportunities to make your way back. Never look upon yourself as unworthy or beyond help, as it is always there if you take the first step to lift yourself up again. In these end times many souls have taken on several challenges to enable them to be ready to ascend. It is the final clearing of karma collected over many lives, and sometimes you have to be strong to clear it. With Ascension in mind every effort you put in is well worthwhile.

You will sense when you have overcome your challenges, as a sudden calmness enters your lives and much relief is experienced as though a great weight has been removed from your shoulders. Often it involves other souls with whom you have had to make peace, and have been unable to move forward until an act of forgiveness is achieved. Set judgment aside and forgive and forget, as the lessons from it will remain with you so that you continue to learn from that experience. Look upon life as play acting and realize the once the curtain comes down you all become friends once again. In the future such problems do not exist as the dimension you will be in, is one of complete harmony and balance.

With your Ascension approaching very quickly bear in mind that it is not dependant on the physical changes taking place on Earth, but there are essential steps to be taken if Mother Earth is to be ready for her own Ascension. Ascension is ongoing and cannot be prevented from taking place, it is a process of Galactic proportions in which you nevertheless have an important role. Once you move forward everything else can also do the same,  and you can look at it this way as the last piece of the jigsaw puzzle to make it complete. It is why Space Beings from all over the Universe assemble to witness your Ascension.

Various actions are making progress, and we closely monitor how they are proceeding. Be assured whatever needs to be completed before Ascension, will be done so, even if we have to play a bigger part than initially thought necessary. We are under divine instructions to help you be ready at the appropriate time, and are in co-operation with many other Higher Beings. No source has deemed it necessary for you to do it all yourself, and it was always going to be a joint effort. After all, we have been with you on and off for thousands of years, drifting in and out mainly to assist Mother Earth. With the demise of Lemuria and Atlantis you might guess that they were times when our expertise was required.

Your civilization was not necessarily certain to end its cycle without a calamity, and a number of times came close to annihilating itself. You did in fact what earlier ones did, and became enamored with power and weapons of mass destruction. It results from a lack of appreciation of how dangerous nuclear devices are, and a scientific fraternity that will experiment before first understanding what the results are likely to be. When the first atomic bomb was exploded, your scientists knew there was a chance it could blow up the world, but still went ahead. Normally you have to experience the stupidity of your waywardness, otherwise you would not learn from anything you do.  However, when your actions have threatened other civilizations we have had to intervene.

The advent of your Nuclear Age was a clear signal to the Universe, that you possessed the ability not to just blow yourselves up, but also Mother Earth. This time round it was not going to be allowed, as all souls were to be given an opportunity to ascend. We know that when you look around you, you are convinced that some souls are unaware of what is about to happen. We will however assure you that before incarnating into this period of time, every soul was made aware of its importance. Even although some souls elected not to ascend, they still wanted to experience the energies. It is the reason why you need not concern yourself about others, as they will end up exactly where they are meant to be by their own choice.

I am SaLuSa from Sirius, and will mention that we intend to uncloak more of our craft, so that you are aware that our great fleet is all around you. What you will see are members of the Galactic Federation of Light getting ready for more open displays. It is an act of friendship on our part that is done with our blessings for you all.

Thank you SaLuSa.

2012 Quotes from the Pleiadians July 15, 2012

ImageThis material from and through Barbara Marciniak and her channeled Pleiadians is so good, helpful and needed that I must share some random bits and pieces from their June 2012 Summer Solstice issue of The Pleiadian TIMES. Remember that these Pleiadians refer to the entire period between 1987–2012 as the “nanosecond”,  which is the highly compressed transformational period of the Ascension Process.

I highly recommend buying a very affordable subscription to The Pleiadian TIMESbecause every quarterly issue is excellent.

“Now, the time has arrived for you to show your worth. The final six months of the nanosecond are the fastest part of the past twenty-five years of accelerated energy; therefore, major internal and external changes can occur in a very short span of time. How well you have learned the essentials of managing energy and using your mind to consciously create reality will soon be determined…

 

“Near the end of a cycle, very dramatic things often occur both personally and collectively, to imprint the soul with layers of memories and spiritual lessons…

 

“Six months from now, when the Winter Solstice Sun aligns with the Galactic Center and completes a 26,000-year cycle, the auspicious era of the nanosecond comes to an end. In the cycles of the cosmos, prominent solar and planetary relationships with the Galactic Center give birth to new eras of consciousness…

 

“While you are living on Earth, other parts of your consciousness can also be simultaneously living on Earth during various periods of time, while other aspects are focused in the nonphysical worlds of spirit and the vastness of the cosmic mind…

 

“The multiverse encompasses all physical and nonphysical dimensions and probable versions of reality, as well as the Milky Way Galaxy’s innumerable stars and planets, other galaxies that make up the universe, along with other universes and as yet unrealized potentials of existence…

 

“The perception of time isolates realities, thereby supplying a container and location where consciousness can create experiences and learn about the importance of growing in awareness…

 

“In terms of time, the nanosecond was recognized long, long ago as a unique point in time when specific celestial alignments would generate changes in human consciousness through an acceleration of energy…

 

“During the last six moons of the nanosecond, intense solar activity will generate more neural genetic changes by activating DNA programs and filling in the grooves that hold your perceptions in specific avenues of time. The Sun always plays a very important role in developing new avenues of perception. The nervous system conveys electrical signals and pulses that travel the body’s neural pathways, and an increase in solar activity can quickly alter the neural signals to produce sudden changes in perception. Experiences of time will be less rigid and more multi-dimensional, free-flowing and filled with meaningful stories that connect other times to the present. Solar-activated neural changes can supply you with greater insight into major life lessons, enhance your psychic abilities and awareness in the dream state, awaken memories, enrich you meditations, open doors to the spirit world and inspire you to move forward with confidence derived from your new perspectives of reality…

 

“Adapt to the changing terrain of consciousness and don’t waste the nanosecond, for it is truly unique, unlike any other era you will experience for a long time to come…

“Imagination is one of your greatest resources, so using it to visualize what you want in life is a true victory in awareness…

 

“The concentration of cosmic energies can super-intensify everything, from heightened states of awareness to increased levels of stress and sensitivity. Staying calm and centered protects you from being enveloped in the worries, anxieties and psychic confusion of others. Reality is a feedback system so get clear on your intentions and write down what you want to create…

 

“And still more changes are coming, enormous and magnanimous changes that call for important decisions concerning your values and quality of life. The final six moons of the nanosecond represent the ultimate initiation into higher states of consciousness. Think about your values and visions; what is most important to you? Are you clear on your priorities, or are you giving your attention to people and situations that leave you feeling empty and disconnected from your soul/spirit?…

Mercury Retrograde – July 15 to Aug 8 July 10, 2012

Image     July 15th to August 8th, 2012

  • Shadow: 1 Leo, June 27th
  • Retro Station: 12 Leo, July 15
  • Direct Station: 1 Leo, August 8th
  • Release: 12 Leo, August 22

Mercury retrograde has effects for two weeks before, and after.  Effects can vary depending on how Mercury has its ties to you.  Examples… Virgo and Gemini, these signs’ ruling planet is Mercury, so if those two signs are your Sun or Rising sign, the energies of Mercury could have more effect.

The overall general theme of Mercury retrograde is about reflection. It offers us a time to be more reflective about our lives, to contemplate and to create order by eliminating things that block our clarity. Therefore it is a good time to write, to meditate, to retreat and to organize. Based on the sign it is in at the time it makes this journey, we find more specific direction about what is required at this time.

The traditional statement about Mercury retrograde is that it favors anything that begins with the prefix “re-” — re-negotiate, re-vamp, re-new, re-vise, return, re-issue, re-visit, re-finance because the word retrograde itself means “to go back and retrace one’s steps.”  Always, decisions should only be made on contingency! With the element of flexibility added to any change or decision, there seems to be some guarantee of success. This period also favors finishing up work or returning to complete a project. This motion can provide new insights into the material. It favors re-considering prior decisions and getting others to change their minds about a previously-made decision. Precision is always disrupted by a retrograde Mercury. Going with the flow, keeping options open, using contingency methods and intuitively processing as you go along seem to give the flexibility needed to avoid Retrograde Mishaps.

**********

When Mercury is in fire signs, the chances skyrocket for outbursts of enthusiastic communication. The instinctual mind has its say. The burning truth comes out impulsively and all lit up. There is vitality to conversation. During a retrograde, that spark returns, and can lead to raw or heartfelt expression. It’s a time to review your philosophy, and pick up dropped threads of inspiration!

July 15th to August 8th, 2012 Mercury in Leo (retrograde) remind us what we truly love. This respite cycles you back to your own unique story. It’s time to journal, and reflect on your ambitions, how you shine, and what you long to create.

Some serendipity happens that puts you in the spotlight. You reconfirm your talent for leading and encouraging others. You help someone see their own uniqueness. Children, or another kind of pride and joy — like your artistic creation — becomes a preoccupation. This could be time to revive a creative idea, give yourself a pep talk, and make plans to bring it to fruition.

This particular dance of Mercury Retrograde will be in the sign of Leo. Leo is about creative self expression; at its core are issues of self-esteem and risking the self. Leo rules the heart. Leo challenges are always about risking the self for the Self.

Mercury will meet up with the following planets: Uranus, Jupiter, Mars and Venus as well as the Full Moon. In some cases there will be three contacts: One in the entering shadow, one during the retrograde and one in the exiting shadow. Others make only one or two contacts.

Mercury Uranus: A time when intuition and intellect combine in the best of ways. July 4th, July 25th, August 18th.

Mercury Jupiter: Boundless opportunity to make intelligent and informed decisions – if you can separate the truth from a lie. June 29th, July 24th, August 22nd.

Mercury Full Moon on August 1st: Truly a time for strong and inclusive social interactions.

Mercury Mars: Words have power and force. The pen is mightier than the sword. July 22nd.

Mercury Venus: Let the poets and musicians sing their songs of beauty. July 4th and July 14th.

***** Some believe:
If you were born under the influence of a retrograde Mercury the ‘rules’ are a bit different for you. Where others should hold back you may step forward. The implication is that you are already attuned to your inner voice and the retrograde just makes that stronger. I believe it is useful and important (as with any astrological information) to see how it plays out for you personally. Blind acceptance is not required.
