Sun in Aquarius

The last post, Scry Deeply For Your Vision of Change, issued a call to reaching into those deep waters of self to explore who you are and what your core beliefs and philosophies reflect. And, now 8 days later, the Moon begins Her phase of new journey, potential and HOPE in the astrological sign of Aquarius. The work that was claimed and shed during that 4th Quarter phase on the 19th is ready for the quickening of its energy as we enter the dynamics of an Aquarius Moon and Sun opening the Gates to what an inspired mind can produce.

The Moon transits New this evening in the astrological sign of Aquarius. Aquarius is sign of elemental Air and Fixed (synthesis to create a stable foundation from which to draw) modality. With its placement as the 11th sign (of 12) on the Zodiacal Wheel there is a sense of cumulative understanding that has progressed from the first thoughts of Gemini’s agility and ease with communication (Mutable:flexible and expansive Mind:air) and found its refined and balanced expression in Libra (Cardinal:catalytic new beginnings of Seed Thought:air). Libra is the space of awareness of what new products may be created from the inpouring of Gemini’s mental explorations. Aquarius being the last and 3rd of the Air (mind and communication) infused signs takes from its predecessors and gathers all of the extraneous information and varied styles of communication as the blueprint to be created for a vision that will electrify and propel all who can understand the nuances and complexities of that vision into the future carried on the breath of change. Think of the change and potential for new creations that occurred with the realization of electricity as an alternative source to the limitations of candle light….

Jan2017-Card 1-Strength vs. Justice -Toth

The companion post to the Rider-Waite draw of Strength. Check out my new blog…

Tarot for Troubling Times

slide3Toth Key XI – Strength/Lust

Lose yourself in loosening the reins of weakness
Use your power to affect change
See the full vision of many paths and many ways of being
Trust in your instincts as….
The Strength Within You Grows

Wait, what? Why are the Strength and Justice Keys reversed in Rider-Waite vs. Toth? These are the numbers:

Rider-Waite: Key VIII – Strength                               
Toth: Key VIII – Adjustment/Justice        

Rider-Waite: Key XI – Justice Rider-Waite
Toth: Key XI – Strength/Lust 

The sweet irony of this draw is…

Strength and Justice make wonderful bedfellows. What we lust after is fueled by action, desire and determination. Strength benefits from these attributes when they are in balance – the necessary component to ensure that Justice is exactly that.

Down the Rabbit Hole: A 3-Part Series

organic-planet

Please enjoy these excerpts from the Three-Part Series featured in Musings from the Mystic Path and check out the pathworking that concludes the series. Be sure to read the other fine articles and creative offerings that are part of each monthly issue….

Musings: Vol. 1 – Issue 6
Down the Rabbit Hole – Part One

The Dark Side of the Light

At some point in the journey on our spiritual path we must encounter another aspect of our nature that is often called the “shadow self”. This encounter is an important milestone in keeping us moving forward along our chosen path, and it is at that juncture that we come upon the divergent crossroads that offer choice of either embrace or retreat in this lifetime. Stepping into the center of this space of opening can very much be the type of experience Alice (of “Alice in Wonderland”) had in falling down the rabbit hole. Cramped in some spaces, too large in others and completely disorienting and unplanned for in process. In fact, if we look more deeply at the metaphorical implications of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, we could conclude that all of the characters were aspects of Alice in their varying levels of evolved or devolved state. These permutations and subtleties are similar to the varying shades of light and dark experienced when we speak of our light body and our shadow or dark other. On either end of the spectrum we have the most pure essence of what that aspect of our being comprises. However, it is necessary to form alliance with all of the variances and characters of archetype that present in between to act as guides and guardians in order to reach these pure forms. Read More…

Musings: Vol. 1 – Issue 7
Down the Rabbit Hole – Part Two

In the Beginning…

Beginning shadow work can be a bit like going down the rabbit hole. It is challenging at best and an unbearable task shrouded in the fear of what may be lurking at the base of that long fall into the inner well of darkness. Ultimately, it can be one of the most rewarding types of work that forces you to stretch and grow in areas you would have otherwise left to wither and die. The key is in the selection of just the right amount of each aspect that will allow you to move into the next phase of your journey.

Many times what you thought to be true for yourself will be challenged and tested as you reveal some of the underlying reasons for the way in which you move through life. The fear is of the death of what is good and pure within yourself. We all wish to be seen in a positive light and the work of exploring our shadow self can provide clues and greater understanding of those qualities we wish to enhance and accentuate, those that we hold in reserve for the appropriate times and those that serve no useful purpose in this lifetime other than the fact that we are now more aware of those characteristics in a way that is informed. This is a journey that only you can make with only your own resources, experiences and inner knowing as guides to light the way. Read More…

Down the Rabbit Hole – Part Three

A Journey of No End

We’ve covered but a few of the concepts that tell the story of the Shadow and the human’s work of getting to know and working collaboratively with this part of themselves. This is the work of not simply one lifetime, but the cumulative effort of many and the memories carried forward with each that we choose (or choose not) to access as supports.

I have always viewed shadow work as that of continual evolvement. In other words, that my shadow nature is one and the same with who and what I perceive myself to be in the Light. It is neither less or more useful; nor, is it one to be ignored or glamorized. It simply “is” a fundamental part of “me” that makes me more fully who I am; stripped naked and vulnerable in my humanity as my Divinity takes on a slightly different mantle. As such, as I evolve, so too does it; albeit perhaps on another track, yet one that moves parallel to what I claim as myself in form and force as one of corporeal form who exudes a light that is “more”.

New Moon in Sagittarius
7:18a.m. (EST)

Sun in Sagittarius

There are times when we feel powerless in affecting change in the way that we would wish. Times that are particularly difficult to navigate and the anticipation of what the future will bring is colored by doubt and fear. We push and strain to let our voices be heard and in the best of it, we step more fully into our power. In the worst, we feel that all of our efforts have been a shot in the dark. Each strike sent out from a tense bow of frustration and an exaggerated aim that often overreaches the goal we loosely had in mind.

Into the Dark-The New Moon in Libra

An excerpt from my post reflecting on the energy of this New Moon is Libra. Enjoy…

url-2

Maiden Moon is cloaked in darkness as She begins a new journey tomorrow in the astrological sign of Libra. The Moon transits in Libra at 3:52a.m. and rises New at 8:11 p.m.(EDT). Balance, harmony and beauty flow through these dark waters as she rises like Venus from the waters; this Maiden is one of polarized opposite to that of the brilliantly lit Venus her sister of light and revelation. Her nakedness is hidden in the night, yet she allows herself the vulnerability that can only be achieved through trust un the inherent balance striven towards.

There is courage that flows through this New Moon, having stationed into this phase mid-point of the scales of the Libran Solar Month.

Lunar Eclipse

Sun in Leo

The Moon waxes full in the electric sign of Aquarius early tomorrow morning. The atmosphere is filled with tiny charged particles of an electric stimulant that typifies the Aquarian thought process. The ruling planet of this airy sign is Uranus, whose impact moves full force with a strong pulsing current that provokes radical change and heightens the neurological system as it prods the entirety of the being to evolve.

Uranus is currently retrograde so that impulse of electrical current is increasingly amping up its wattage and having found its natural companion in Aquarius this moon’s energy is one of pivotal change.

Aquarius is a mental sign of the Fixed Modality. This lends itself quite well to providing a structure and container that synthesizes with the agility of a computer. Abstraction and processing at the speed of light…
