New Beginnings

New Beginnings
 Now is the perfect time

Be ready to give birth to new ideas and situations in your life. We are entering a new cycle and rebirth is indicated at this time. This can mean a new phase in a relationship, the germination of a fresh new idea or the development of qualities in you like laughter, light and hope. It can also mean a complete change it what is. Do not be afraid to let go of the familiar, for the new cannot enter until the old has been released. We are watching over you, and protecting you during these times of changes.

This is the perfect time to act on your inspirations. Everyone and everything is on your side, supporting your positive outcome. Don't delay, act today. Ask the angels to guide the new beginnings in your life safely to maturity.

Affirmation: "I welcome the new in my life as I release that which no longer serves my desired growth."

You are dearly loved and supported, always, the angels

Meditation is a perfect practice to start in the new year 
Just quiet your mind, feel your heart slow and be in a rhythm of your breath. Listen to your breath and let your thoughts leave your mind, you can pick them up later. Place them in a box in the corner just so you know where they are. Focus on your inhale and your exhale and how wonderful that feels as every cell in your body is bathed with oxygen and light and relaxes in love. Then, you can listen to the promptings of the Divine from within or something longer like  taking a journey with us to a magical land and tap into your inner wisdom and work on expanding your senses. Relax and open your mind to receiving, without directing your thoughts. Just notice the feelings, visions, or ideas that come your way. Call in your entourage of angels to assist you and then be open to the expansion that is taking place. 

And then, in your awake state, notice the loving guidance you hear inside your head, or from other people. Notice the feelings that you get and trust in them. If you are unsure, quiet your mind and breath, and ask your heart center to give you more information and then act on the information you receive. Ask your Angels to open your third eye and practice using these tools in your everyday life.

Affirmation:"Each day my senses are expanding, opening and becoming more sensitive with my environment "

You are dearly loved and supported, always, the angels

Give to those who do not expect it, 
Give anonymously with zest. 
Give of your silent prayers for another you pass 
on the street. 
Give without thinking allowing it to be a way of life 
not a season.

Stay focused upon your intentions, desires, and priorities.

Pay attention to the doors that are opening, and learn from the doors that are closed.Keep a positive outlook about your dreams, and imagine that they've already manifested into reality. Spend time each day devoted to projects that are dear to your heart.

If you are stuck or indecisive, the Universe doesn't know what you want. It is important to clearly decide what direction or goals you choose and then focus on them, then the energy is stronger.

If you are unsure what is the next step on your path, ask the Angels. We will help to guide you. It is your responsibility to take the steps through those doors you choose take. Know that everything works within the Universal Laws, such as the Law of Attraction and the Law of Divine Timing. This means that the vibration you are putting out is what you receive, and that certain pieces of the puzzle must be in place so that other parts can come into play. If you skip, rush or ignore certain pieces or parts, the plan lacks a solid foundation, and you don't see the results you desire.

Decisiveness is the catalyst for the Angels to clear the way for your manifestations. Let go of the fears or the worries and focus only on the destination you intend to reach. Enjoy the journey along the way.

Affirmation: "I am clear and focused. My desires are manifesting now"

You are dearly loved and supported, always, the angels

Lets have a holiday...every day!

Is there a time when there is no difference between a holiday and any other day?
Is there a need to go and buy presents and delightful food for one day in the year?
Is it only for the few to see what it is that is so prevalent in the time of a celebration?
We say that there is reason for celebration in every moment, every day, every year. There is room for guidance in how to utilize that celebration to create a life of beauty, bounty and the beholdment of the Almighty presence that is within each of you.
It is time for you all to see yourselves as the reason for celebration and for each other to join in that chorus of joy and applause. We see you all as treasures of the Tree of Life with the Golden tinsel bound in light. We see you all as the beautiful Saviors of yourselves.
Through your Spirit within, you have reason to climb to the top of the world and jump off into eternity. You are the Angels on top of the Tree of Life. Shine your Golden Light and sing the song of everlasting life for all of existence to celebrate.
Love is Eternal, as are You!

Merry Christmas from the Angels...

Merry Christmas

A special message from the angels
We are very happy and honoured to be called upon to share in this way. To share our love, our support and our strength with you as you share yours with us to in different ways. We are always here and honoured beyond your human understandings and how we earn our 'wings' so to speak. So, thank you for asking. Thank you for inviting us in to be a part of your earth experience. Thank you for letting us in and letting us love you. This is a most important thing and please continue to do so. Thank you.

Open your hearts to each other. Open your hearts to love. This begins by the journey of self discovering that most of you are on. As you expand your understand of your'elf', that one that lives within in and is the authentic you, you naturally open to more love. It is the evolution of humanity at this time. Welcome aboard the love train. For that is truly what this all about. Expanding your abilities to love beyond the physical. To see more than is actually there brings about a higher dimensional compassion that is unconditional love. Loving regardless of the conditions...absolutely regardless! That means Love them anyway. Don't always hear the words they are speaking, feel their hearts. See that they too have seen many experiences and have 'fought the good fight' so to speak, just as you have. And that each of you finds your path based on those experiencing and doing the best you can along the way. That may not be the same as your best, however that no longer matters. It is that you always do your best - which will also change- that is important. As each of you learns to live this, the closer you get to returning to the love beings that you truly are. Be loved, be blessed and feel that from us each day.

Offer peace to your fellow humans along the way. Help where you can. Be of service to your people. Be care takers of the beloved mother and remember to love all things that live upon her. Become to Earth Keepers that is your birthright and part of what is your 'life' purpose for many of you. Learn to take care of the earth first and the animals which share your space. Each of you is vital to the success of the whole. Each of you is vitally connected as you are with the wind, the seas, the water, the land, the minerals, the insects, and those that roam free upon her. Learn to take care of each other as you do the earth for you are all vital part in the circle of life. Remember, what you put upon the earth, so too do you put that within yourself for you are revitalized in so many ways from by the animals, the insects and earth, and she by you. Find the balance in the giving and receiving with your earth and all the others who live upon her. Find that peace and offer it to each other and all that is.

You also have as an important life purpose of communicating with others and through the arts. Each of you in a slightly different way, and also a crucial part of the earths evolution. Each of you has things to offer in a way that one else possesses in quite the same way. And even if it doesn't seem so as you are going through it, each event in your life is so carefully orchestrated through your life time by You, your higher self, your guides and angels. We are all working together to accomplish what you want to experience in this life time. Know that each event that seems insurmountable is the one that offers you the most opportunities for growth and change - evolution- and less resistance to it- is what you came here to experience and it is a grand plan indeed.

Each of you plays a part somehow in communication. Many of you are the teachers and the healers and there is so much variety in all of these categories. Some of you share your energies through the physical arts that transcends with its message, some of you share in physical healing, which then transcends the the physical. Some of you heal with you words, which then transcends the mental... do you get the picture. The end results of all that you share change and help evolve the many in so many different ways. We ask that you follow your hearts passion and develop the faith to believe that all things are possible and miracles happen every day on your beautiful planet. As more of you begin to know this as your truth, your physical surroundings will change to match that vibration and everything will evolve at a faster rate. Share who you are be living and being in your truth at all times. This is the best communication you can share with others. Boast not loudly who you have become, but go in peace,and be the ambassador of love and service and others will follow by your example. That is true evolution.

Be strong dear ones and know that you are never alone. You are stronger than you think and your strength is what assures the desired outcomes for you. Use positive affirmations each morning and throughout the day to keep you on focus and target as you take the steps that lead you where you want to go. This is the key to opening the many doors that are your opportunities of manifestation. Trust your inner wisdom to be your barometer along the way. Trust your own powers to choose and discern what is the best path for you and leave no room for doubt to slow you down. This is a powerful tool - using your words- so choose them wisely in your creations. You are making steady progress - the best kind- for it is in the slow and steady that you win the race.  The race is only you against you, no one else so the pace is entirely of your choosing. Again, choose wisely in where and how you invest your time, money and energy.  Honour those who have helped you along the way and release that which doesn't serve who you are. Set limits for yourself and know that many will demand your time, it is up to you how you use it. And all things can be said kindly and with love. And clearly, we see that make a difference to the world through your thoughts, feelings and actions of love.

Surrender. Give up the need to control every aspect of your journey. Ask your angels to help you resolve any resistance of your ego self. This is the mental energy that needs to be transformed. Let go of the desire for things to be the best and just do your best. Let others be free to do there best and move on. When you surrender to the guidance of your higher self, all the energy you have been using in resistance becomes available to you. Vitality, inner peace, harmony and most of all love, are your spiritual rewards. So, flow with the pace of life. Relax and tune in. Then follow the guidance of your intuition knowing that the angels will be supporting you every step of the way.

Celebrate. We know that not all of you celebrate christmas or a holiday at this time. However you can enjoy the energy that is available to everyone at a time of great love. Remember to feel the love. Those of you who do celebrate Christmas. Remember that it is about love and celebration of new life and potentials for humanity and not a commercial holiday which has become. Let go of the need to buy a gift and remember it is about the gift of you. So give the gift of who you are and be in love and service to all humanity and all that is. That is how you create heaven on earth - The New Earth -

We wish you to feel our love and our blessings which is bestowed upon each one of you this day and everyday of your lives.

You are dearly loved and supported, always, the angels

Work your magic
You are a power and magical human. Step into that place of creation that exists within each of you. Nourish yourself so that part of can flourish. Decide clearly where you want to go. Then, let the results of your desires become a feeling of what it will feel like when you get there. Let us orchestrate the hows with you. Ask your angels to be your guides. Next, decide clearly what you will and won't accept as your clarity will bring immediate results and it is important to set healthy boundaries. Have steady faith in a positive outcome.

You have the power to resolve any situation. Tap into your magical abilities, which you've used successfully in the past. Pull these abilities out of storage and use them to work your magic now. Your clear and focused intentions, positive expectations, prayers, decrees, and action steps all create the healings and manifestations you desire.

Study alchemy and manifestation principles, for these Universal Laws will assist you in manifesting your dreams into reality.

Affirm often: "I am powerful and in control of my destiny"

You are dearly loved and supported, always, the angels

Archangel Michael

Archangel Michael
Remember who you Are

You are a powerful, loving, and creative child of the Creator. You are very loved. You are made in the image and likeness of the Creator, so you embody aspects of all those qualities. Your inner Divine light is pure and bright in truth, and no mistakes can undo God's handiwork of true perfection. Don't be afraid of your power, your magnificence, or your wisdom. When you succeed, you inspire others. When you change your life so that it's more aligned with your interests, you inspire others.

Be powerful! Be Magnificent, This is who you are.

Working with Archangel Michael: Michael's name means "He Who is like God," since he emanates the Creator's awesome qualities of love, power, strength, and unwavering faith. When you call upon Michael, your own similar qualities are enhanced and magnified. Ask Michael to enter your dreams and clear away any fears that are blocking you from fully enjoying and living your spiritual gifts and qualities. Michael works especially well with us while we're sleeping, since that's when we are more open-minded and receptive.

*from Doreen Virtue's Archangel Oracle Cards,*

My Weekly Dose of Music

These are my favorite artists and tracks of the week!
May the Universe Bless them in all of their careers...
some REAL talent here!

I am working on my newest track now. 
It is a cover of James Blake's "The Willhelm Scream".
When you initially hear the track, you think it is so simple...then it gets REAL!
Makes me cry every time. 
Heart is in the floor by the last minute to 30seconds...every time!

Anyway...the track isn't simple at ALL!....
Especially considering the fact that I don't read or play music, I had to learn the "seemingly" simple chords and try to recreate them with software. Why? 
Because the keyboard I had was only battery operated...and Mother Misfit was outta batteries :( ... (Mother Misfit is the AKA I will be releasing this EP with.)

I eventually figured it out on piano with a heavy distortion. It is gonna take me awhile to finish it though, as  have created 7 different drum patterns already and now must sequence it all (ughh) then record vocals and mastering...'twill grace the world soon!


The track and official video are below. Personally, my favorite videos of James' are the live performances. The way the guitarist triggers midi audio through his guitar 
and uses it as a controller is brilliant. Not to mention the drummer and the various percussion or marching band instruments he rotates with are so clever. 
The pauses, breaks and harmonies matched with his emotional vocals is a heart-
beat skippin' recipe fo sho! 
I also am stringing a few of my other fave new artists. 
I would love to see my sister play in a band like "Those Dancin' Days"!
Also a few other female and male artists I have discovered.
Hope you all enjoy!

Co-Create... Today's message from the Angels...


Article Copyright ©2011 by Sharon Taphorn. All rights reserved.


Use your talents, skills and energy with others

Eliminate power struggles, conflicts and competition and co-create your dreams and desires by combining your strengths together. As a group you can move mountains. Energize each others dreams and desires, just as you call us in to assist. Find like minded individuals who will help you co-create and that you are also willing to co-create with. It doesn't have to be the same dreams and desires, only that you love them enough to create with them. Each of you have your own desires and dreams and ways to get there. Be open to others ideas as well. Co-operate with others, and find the middle ground or leave everyone with a sense of a job well done. As you do your best, others will do there best also. This does not mean that it will be the same as your best, which can change from moment to moment. What we are suggesting is to be open and loving and accepting of those around you. Take with you what works and leave the rest, as it might be just what someone else needs.

Have faith, keep hope in your heart and keep charging ahead. Each step takes you closer to where you want to go. Keep moving. Keep releasing and making way for the new. Your angel guidance is to bring people together and explore how you can mutually assist each other. Have patience and faith, and don't try to force things to happen.

You are dearly loved and supported, always, the angels

Thank you, Mahalo, Merci, Gracias, Vielen Dank, Grazie, Спасибо, Obrigado, 谢谢, Dank, 謝謝, Chokran,Děkuji

one of my songs... let me know what you think!

Friday, December 9, 2011



Persevere towards your vision
Let your every thought, word and deed be directed towards your desired outcome. Focus your energy on creating the earth you have been dreaming about. Keep your energy focused and trust that there are enough of you incarnated at this time who are just as powerful in their intent to create the new Earth that you know within is emerging. Hold steadfast to your ideals, even if those around you say it will never happen. Avoid these people and all other negative energies that are around at this time. Keep your thoughts and feelings focused on the knowing that it will happen. Trust that it will happen. When enough of you hold this vision, it can't help seem that it happened in a blink of an eye, however things seem much slower to those actually going through it.

Use positive affirmations each day to help you keep this focus. Your angel guidance is to take time out from your busy day and take care of yourself as well as time to focus on your affirmations and desires. Open your heart to greater love each day and let your emotions heal. Release any thoughts of anger and unforgiveness from your heart and your mind, as these are blocks that often stand in the way of creating your dreams. Remember to ask your angels for help and know when you dedicate your intention to the highest good, you are supported always.

Affirmation: "I am committed to my vision of a new earth built on love, compassion and support."

You are dearly loved and supported, always, the angels

A Holiday Blessing
May today there be Peace within.
May you trust God that you are exactly
where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities
that are born of faith.
May you use those gifts that you have received,
and pass on the love that has been given you.
May you be content knowing that you are a child of God!
Let His presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul
The freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.
It is there for each and every one of us!

Focused Intention

Focused Intention

Set your intent and keep your focus

When you keep your thoughts, feelings and actions focused one what you desire, it is a stronger force and it will manifest much more quickly in  your life. Take some time to decide what you truly desire, meditating, and gaining the clarity of your intentions and then take the action that you are guided to take. Trust your inner wisdom. Connect with your still, quiet center often and you will have faith in what you are doing. If you are lacking a bit in the trust department, ask your  angels to buoy your faith and release the process to us as this will remove any blocks that slow you down. Keep your focus on the outcome and let us take care of orchestrating the symphony for you. This is our honour and purpose. We are always thrilled to be called upon to help and guide.

Let your new found wisdom show you new and fresh perspectives guide you. See those around you with love and compassion and open you heart fully to the magnificent opportunities that are available to everyone. Release any thoughts of judgement or less than for yourself and others. This is what compassion is all about and as you see the world from the perspective of your angels you gain a greater understanding of the 'good of all'. All things are for the good of all, even if you can't see yet. Focus on what and how you can be of this higher dimensional energy and let others find their own way when they are ready to take the call. Be your beautiful, magnificant, and powerful self and enjoy the outcomes of all that you create.

Affirmation: "I trust my inner wisdom. I see the world and all that is here with love and compassion."

You are dearly loved and supported, always, the angels

The Search For Meaning - Where To Find It? December's Gemini Lunar Eclipse

The Search For Meaning - Where To Find It? December's Gemini Lunar Eclipse

The books we read should be chosen with great care, that they may be, as an Egyptian king wrote over his library, “The medicines of the soul.” Paxton Hood
To me the charm of an encyclopedia is that it knows and I needn’t. Francis Yeats Brown
There are worse crimes than burning books. One of them is not reading them. Joseph Brodsky
In science, read by preference the newest works. In literature, read the oldest. The classics are always modern. Lord Edward Lytton
Books are the carriers of civilization. Without books, history is silent, literature dumb, science crippled, thought and speculation at a standstill. Barbara Tuchman
Occurring on December 10 in the United States and the early hours of the morning on December 11 in Australia, December's full Moon is a total lunar eclipse. Being a south node eclipse, this is an event that will have many examining, and learning from, the past. The Sabian Symbol is Gemini 19: In A Museum, A Large Archaic Volume Reveals A Traditional Wisdom.
The ‘Large Archaic Volume Reveals a Traditional Wisdom’. It is in a ‘Museum’ where it is safe and secure, and available to all who pass by and appreciate it. ‘Traditional Wisdom’ is nowadays often taken for granted or ignored. In this Symbol this ‘Wisdom’ is locked away in a ‘Museum’ like some kind of curiosity that is somehow revered, but possibly no longer relevant. The ‘Museum’ may literally be a building, but it may also be information or knowledge hidden deep within yourself or the elders of your community. This ‘Wisdom’ is held within all of us and merely needs to be tapped to be understood.
Some effort needs to be made to discover this ‘Large Archaic Volume’ and to allow the  ‘Traditional Wisdom’ within it to inspire your actions in present day situations. You may experience intuitive ‘Wisdom’ that seems to be generated outside of your own experience. In a progressive world we look so often for new ideas and new solutions. ‘Traditional’ knowledge can seem to be irrelevant to the present, but in truth it is something we often need in our lives. The knowledge behind those beliefs or rituals can be as relevant today as it has always been. Reading and studying this ‘Archaic Wisdom’ can bring a sense of pride in our ancestors and those that went before us. It is, however, often important to update the way we view and use traditional wisdom. Confidence in your actions will come from foundations that have a history or a strong sense of past. Learn to take the best from the past, as it is useful for providing answers and clues to modern life problems. However, let go of any old and outworn beliefs that are holding you back.
Keywords: Reading and learning. Collective knowledge coming from ancient sources. Enormous potential to be tapped. The Akashic records. Astrology. The Bible. Learning from the victories and mistakes of the past. Old stories that come out of the past or are hard to forget. Shamanic knowledge. Learning from heritage.The roots of civilization. Books. Ancient sources of information.The mysteries.
The Caution: Not understanding wise messages or advice. Being caught up in accepting only what tradition dictates. Old fashioned rules of “the book”. Old and outdated laws.
The message that seems to be coming through is one of defining 'the rules' that one lives by in order for things to work more efficiently. What is it that you've learned but have yet to put into practice in your life? What definitions, rules and boundaries should be let go of as they no longer work for you? Here's a link to some great art created by books click here.
Finding someone to share your thoughts, ideas and beliefs is shown by the Karmic Condition (the degree before) of this full Moon. It's Gemini 18: Two Chinese Men Speaking Chinese In A Western Crowd. Do you have people in your life that speak your language? That understand your mindset? That want to converse with you so that you can learn from each other? Are you finding it hard to find people that you can share with on a heart, mind and soul level?
Keywords: Finding those of like mind. Leaving the “western crowd” behind. People having a specialized language that doesn’t communicate with the larger population. Exclusivity in communication. Interpreting or misinterpreting tones of voice. People being drawn to each other. “Chinese whispers”.
The Caution: Reluctance to adapt. Being with people who don’t share the same philosophies or understandings. No one to communicate with on the same level. Stories that get out of control. Depending on others to mirror one’s self. Being in alien territory. Schizophrenia. Hearing voices. Racism.
The Sabian Symbol for the Sun seems to suggest that some will have to move on in some way in order to feel safe, secure, protected and nourished in their environment. The Symbol is Sagittarius 19: Pelicans Disturbed By The Garbage Of People Move To A New Habitat. Do you have to put up with 'garbage' from others? Noise, pollution and negative thinking can impact on one's desire to live a happier, more fulfilling life. Do you need to move on? Do you need someone else to move out of your environment? Do you need to speak up about what's bothering you?
Keywords: Concerns with survival. The endeavor to achieve mental, physical or emotional well-being or peace. Noise and other irritants that make life difficult. Looking out for the safety and security of one’s children, home or creative ventures. Feeling unsafe with conditions being insecure and unpredictable. Having nowhere to rest.
The Caution: Mess and rubbish left around. Not being prepared to compromise or cohabit. People not being able to live together. “Fouling of one’s nest”. Being told that things are being done “for your own good” regardless of what you want. Noise driving people out. Leases running out.
Topping off the idea of boundaries, laws, rules and regulations is Venus on Capricorn 18:  A Union Jack Flies From A New British Warship. Here again is the concern with what you will and won't put up with. With Venus in Capricorn, there's also the spectre of money, big business and corporations and the issues that they bring up. Do you build walls that keep relationships or good things from getting too close to you? Are you often on the defense?
Keywords: Colonialism. Protectionism. The government, big business and the media. Class-consciousness. Power and political displays. Displays of “law and order”. Border patrols and protection. Strength and might. Nationalism. Royalty. The ruling elite. Supervision. The armed forces. Patrols. Pitting people against each other. Empires. Victory bringing riches. The mother country. The struggle against decline. Flags. Imperialism. The Commonwealth. The rule of law.
The Caution: Artificial shows of strength. Bullying from the “big guys”. Being armed “to the teeth”. Strong-arm tactics. Disrespect for authority. People or institutions that throw their weight around. Anarchy. Traitors. Being anti establishment. Social disintegration. War games. Civil wars. Feeling squeezed by authority. Rebellion. Civilian lives lost for political causes. Governing forces that deny individual rights. Invasions.
Venus is in a rather difficult aspect to the Moon, being in quincunx aspect, and you could find it a bit difficult to align your wants with your needs. I think of the quincunx as being like the 'itch that is difficult to scratch', but one needs to be creative, to find solutions that really suit rather than being band aids that will rub off at the next event.
Mars in Virgo could help to sort things out, particularly as Mars is slowing right down for it's long stay in that sign - Mars goes retrograde in January. Virgo, when it's not been sacrificial and self effacing, can be a great sign for getting things in order, to demarcate those boundaries, to decide what is worth keeping and what is not. The Symbol is Virgo 14: Finely Letter Names And Mysterious Lines Are Seen: It Is A Family Tree. Many will be asking questions about who really is 'family' and who is not. It seems that just because we're related to someone, that doesn't mean that we belong with them. Family in this context, especially with Mars here, can have people delving into their family tree all the way up to deciding not to have some family members in their space. It's an interesting challenge in the lead up to the holidays. Who do you invite? Who invites you? Do you want to go? Are you over Christmas? Would you rather take off (like the 'Pelicans', perhaps) to an island where you don't have to deal with all the garbage?
The karmic Moon's north node is STILL on Sagittarius 15 (where it's been for a long time), on The Groundhog Looking For Its Shadow On Groundhog Day.
Keywords: Looking back, reading the signs. Divination and other systems of inquiry. Seeing society as being to blame. People having a good look at how they seem to others. Wondering how others perceive you and picture you. Prophets that can tell the “weather”ahead of time. Predictions. Prognosticating. Welcoming an early spring. Scrutinizing objectives. Looking to nature for clues.
The Caution: Being scared to act without some message of confirmation. People (or society) looking for someone to blame for conditions. Relying on the same solutions without consideration of changes. Blizzards and the cold.
So, are you still waking up in the morning wondering what the heck you're doing with your  life? Wondering why you keep repeating the same old patterns? Curiously, in Sydney in the first week of summer, it is unseasonably cold (it's the coldest December in 50 years). Where the heck is summer? For some, of course, blizzards are setting in in the northern hemisphere - but what exactly is blowing the coldest wind in your direction?
As this is a lunar eclipse, the karmic Moon's nodes are very much involved in the action and it's can be a time of big events, breakthroughs, realizations and the birthing of a new era in life, particularly as we go into 2012. The shift in energy that we'll be feeling over the next year is enormous and this lunar eclipse is part of the birth of the new. Something that was 'birthed' at the partial solar eclipse on November 25 feels set to break (or reach a peak). The Symbol for that solar eclipse was Sagittarius 3: Two Men Playing Chess.... the motif of chess, gamesmanship and issues of winning (particularly ruling rights and territory), aligns with the issues to do with boundaries that are coming to the fore now.
Aligning with the idea of books, learning, intellect and communications is the karmic Moon's south node on Gemini 15: Two Dutch Children Talking And Studying Their Lessons Together. Here again, as with the Two Chinese Men Speak Chinese, we have 'two' people, conversing and sharing ideas. They have a rather specialized language, or they come from a culture that may be quite different from others. Again, there's the need to find one's 'equal', mate, partner or friend that really gets what you're about.
Mercury is retrograde on Sagittarius 5: An Old Owl Perched High Up In A Tree. This shows the need, or the desire, of observing, taking everything in while being reflective about what's being shown to you. What is it that you are, or should be, digesting?
Keywords: Wisdom and strength. Evening contemplation. Keeping thoughts to oneself. A wise “sage” type of person. Nocturnal vision. Exalted wisdom. “Night owls”. Heightened sight and seeing. Being silent and alert for the slightest movement. The ability to see all around.
The Caution: Smug denial of available wisdom. Someone thinking they know it all. Not wanting to join in with others in fun activities. Acting old before their time. Excluding others as being frivolous and unknowing. Waiting for one’s prey.
Jupiter goes direct in a few week's time, so it's energy is amplifying Taurus 1: A Clear Mountain Stream Flows Steadily Downstream. Jupiter is doubly strong as it rules the Sun and the Moon's north node. It seems to be asking that we 'get into the flow', gathering steam as we head to our objectives with the law of gravity at our backs. In what direction are you flowing? How are you pushing towards the things you want?
Keywords: Remaining fluid. Flowing energy. Pure sources, nourishment and refreshment. Sure sense of direction. “Untainted” blood lines. Purifying one’s thoughts, ideas and beliefs. Things set in train from upstream. Water. Dams. Water as a resource. Purification. Cleaning and cleansing. Pipelines. The spiritual dimensions of water. Baptism. Elemental knowledge. Traffic. Flowing crowds of people.
The Caution: Aimlessness. Aloofness. Feelings of physical, spiritual, racial or intellectual purity that can lead to smugness, bigotry or a false sense of superiority. Ice cold feelings and responses. Not taking notice or being concerned about another’s feelings. Cold ambition. Mud and sediment. Pollutants. Algae. Stagnant moments.
Adding to the sense of forward momentum is Uranus turning direct again after being retrograde since July. Uranus can bring up questions like 'what about me?', and 'what (or who) am I do this for and it's a time for launching into the new, especially as Uranus is on Aries 1: A Woman Has Risen From The Ocean, A Seal Is Embracing Her.
Keywords: Cycles starting. Beginnings. Emergence into concrete manifestation. Embracing and honoring the shadow. Recognizing our animal side. Tropical islands or lands. Rocky shores. Seals. Oceans and water. Shedding skins. Transmutation. The Selkie myth. Grounding one’s energy. Stepping between the sea and the shore. Androgyny. Love and its embrace. Finding your feet and your voice.
The Caution: Using masculine power to overshadow emotions or entertain fear. Refusing to move into a new state. Feeling held back by fears and old life patterns. Falling back into previous, unsatisfactory conditions. People dragging others backwards. Immobilizing fear of the unknown. Being just another “fish in the sea”.
Pluto is on Capricorn 7: A Veiled Prophet Speaks, Seized By The Power Of A God. This asks where your sense of authority lies, who do you listen to? Can you trust what's being said? Is there truth in the airwaves or is it mostly manipulation? What is emanating from your own sense of power? How are you manifesting your words, your thoughts, your ideals?
Last but not least is Chiron, which I see very much as the stories that we tell ourselves that feed our woundedness and our 'not being good enough'. Chiron is on Pisces 2: A Squirrel Hiding From Hunters. The trick with this is to watch, listen and learn about where you sabotage your efforts to be free, independent and to bask in the sunshine. For many, it may be time to come out of their hiding hole.
