9/18 ~ Venus (values) ~oppose~ Uranus (freedom):
Any time Uranus is involved, it becomes the “wild card” and hard to predict how things will unfold, but right now there is a push-pull between your apparent values and your unique individual self. Venus also represents relationships, so you may begin an unusual relationship or you may have something unusual happen in an established relationship. It is not necessarily a “good/bad” thing, as much as an unpredictable shift or sudden awareness, which requires some compromise & integration. This energy works beautifully if your personal Truth and values are in alignment. It will be very disruptive if they are not. Be open and flexible, while looking for the win/win situation for all involved.
9/19 ~ Venus (feminine values & priorities) ~sextile~ Mars (masculine desires & actions):
This energy is good for trying new things and meeting new people, if/when possible. It creates a good vibe and balanced masculine/feminine energy that allows a nice exchange between self and other. This is a good time to be creative, so be cognizant of any ideas that come to you right now, even if you cannot implement them right away. This is a happy, upbeat energy, so if you can be sociable, by all means, get out and mingle. It’s possible to attract someone under this influence as well. The best thing to do with this energy is get involved with new and progressive projects or people. It’s all very positive.
9/20 ~ Mercury (ideas, thoughts & concepts) ~trine~ Pluto (rebirth & transformation): (2 of 2: 8/10 ~ 9/20.2016)
This activation makes any deep delving within easier and more fruitful. It encourages you to ask the deeper questions, clarify your deeper feelings and trust your intuitive gut feelings that are telling you something has to die so some other aspect of your consciousness can live. You will want to explore your inner Self, sort through recently gathered information and try to understand better what your natural process really is. It is best to be alone for such research. Take a day or a weekend and grab your most powerful books & music and get somewhere beautiful if you can, if not, then your bedroom will do just as well – and dig deep! You are finally ready for the deeper truth, and you will be transformed by what you learn. If you must communicate with others, plan on that being deep as well, so best to talk to a trusted advisor or wise elder. Nothing superficial today. The only warning with this energy is not to become obsessive about one particular idea – and certainly don’t try to force any ideas on others. If you feel the deep need to focus on one particular thing, that is fine but try to keep some perspective or write down all your revelations so you can reflect on them at a later time when you can be more objective and prioritize better.
9/22 ~ Mercury Direct in VIRGO
The current one in Virgo precedes the next/final one in Capricorn/Dec (which will cross-over into new year) so this is a delicious opportunity to get the most out of your Harvest this year. This has been a year, in many ways, of creating containers for our ideas, focusing on what thoughts we want to bring into form & creating all new systems for living at this higher physical vibration. We are tremendously supported for grounding a whole new concept of Life on Earth. Simple awareness activates the energies within you and calls your SoulSelf to action, and from there, things evolve naturally.
Retrogrades (any planet) are simply a shift in direction, not necessarily denials, just delays, trying to get your attention about something (often) right under your nose. Try to practice receiving the cues, clues & directions from around you, then running them through your own Heart/Mind *Filter* (intuition) before making decisions on your own behalf. Mercury in particular, retrogrades 3-4 times per year, so it is really good to know when those 6-week periods are, not so you can stop-the-presses of your life, but so you can be prepared to do things a little differently. Magic is available in these zones, I assure you, and we are in one of those zones now (Sept).
Mercury Retrogrades through Earth Signs all year. Mercury Retro in Capricorn bookends this year and 2016 is a *9* year, leading to a *1* year in 2017. This gives a unique & delicious opportunity to activate your Inner Architect at the start of both these two years, back-to-back: one (2016) to design the completion/closure of the last cycle and one (2017) to design the initiation/new beginning of the next cycle.
There are a few reminders that occurred to me that I’d like to share with you. I also encourage you to review the Audio etc (Here) and check out this 1-pg/PDF for fun. It is Mercury Retro thru the Earth Signs, at-a-glance.
1~During the Virgo segment, I touched on how important the Mind/Body Connection is this year. We are developing all new ways of living on Earth. It is good to keep in mind, physical results, require physical action and take time to manifest. We have to give the physical *time* to fully develop, strengthen & fortify and then we are better able to handle the more rarified energy and pure light. The Mercury Retrogrades blesses us with 3-4 chances a year to consciously do this.
2~During the Capricorn segment, I spoke about mental ‘boundaries’ and at the time, I lost my words for a minute, and the word I was looking for was ‘commitments’ because this retrograde (and the one at the end of this year) are both going to help you define your terms in all new ways, one of which is your ‘idea/concept of commitment’ (we want to be responsible, not obligated). So much is changing, like your definition of purpose, your idea of team players and your traditional containers or formats. It’s time to dream up new ones. The blessing of Mercury Retro is that it gets you thinking in new directions, where you discover a break-to-realign can be a juicy and welcome thing.
9/22 ~ FALL Equinox 2016
Bi-Annual Point of Balance – literal, physical, actual Balance – is active and available right now. So while you are encouraged to reflect on the last 9-months and visualize the next, there is also so much power & magic in the present moment. Source energy that you can literally draw up into your own individual body to replenish your over-taxed systems. We are also still very much in the Eclipse Portal which happens to be Virgo/Pisces, and they always teach us the lesson of being a Spirit in Human form, of integrating our physical capabilities with our consciousness so we are truly effective. This is a major *upgrade* to how we do this simply because Eclipses accelerate the possibilities and break to realign us to the now.
This is also the season of Harvest and the 7th in the 8 Sacred Seasons so we are preparing to close the year strong. This is the time when we assess all that we’ve managed to create in 2016 to determine what took root and is strong & viable, as well as what did not. We are going to celebrate rather than mourn the completion & closure being offered to us on so many levels. 6-weeks into that, we will begin to call in the Ancestors to bless all that we’ve done and give us our instructions for the coming year (early-mid November).
Finally, you are Invited to Join me & Shanta Gabriel this THUR/Sept 22nd @4pm (PDT)/7pm (EDT) as we connect the magic of Mt. Shasta with the power of the Ocean to make our offerings and set our intentions for this Sacred Season. There are gatherings held all over the world, large and small, to celebrate this season, including ours so please ~ Join Us! Love Offering of $12 to Kelly or Shanta and Receive Post-Call Bonus Goodies!
