Any month that starts out with the Catholic Pope’s retirement, hospitalization of the Queen of England, and the US government in sequester promises to be interesting. That has happened in the first three days of March and it’s going to be a long month.
Well it’s that time again; Lent and Sun in Pisces. It’s generally not my favorite time of year. Looking at Pisces energy itself, it rules the astrological 12th house which is related to places of confinement, karma and the subconscious.
Interestingly, the Universe in its wisdom and humor has given us a Full Moon in grounded and practical Virgo. This whole Full Moon period will be strongly impacted by the dynamic “opposite” dynamic of Pisces.
Did you notice some pretty crazy intense stuff this week? On January 6th the Moon joined Saturn, and Mercury joined Pluto. All four pointed at Jupiter (still retrograde). That is big build up of pressure (that I have certainly felt).
I have been working with the 11:11 energies since 1992. Some say it is repetitive and unnecessary But I Know Otherwise. The 11:11 vibration of Light is one of the most important yearly events we are gifted. 11:11 is an energy that is anchored fully in my heart forever. It is part of my personal encoding and aligned with all of those that carry the Christ-Light, whether in DNA or just intention.
If I were to sum up into one word how the energies have been these past several weeks, the word intense comes to mind, however even that is still putting it mildly. We are getting the opportunity to see many extremes at this time both in our personal lives and on the global stage. On a personal level, the highs may seem higher than ever one minute, and then all of a sudden we get triggered and spiral into lows we thought we had overcome long ago.
Living during this cycle of history comes with a unique set of challenges no previous generation faced. This is true in general, and it's even more applicable during the amplified energetic cycles of 2012. The cycle that started last weekend - with a three-week Mercury retrograde and other discordant planetary aspects - is adding intensity to your interactions and activities. If you have felt more stress than normal, these erratic energetic cycles could be one factor.
Right now is a time of preparation. You sit in one of those natural cycles – a new season about to begin and the planet Mercury having gone retrograde today for three weeks. Each time these things occur together, you have an opportunity to regroup within yourself and take stock of where you are.
I've been writing for some time that the transformation we have been going through for the past five years or more will soon be felt by everyone and that time is here. And others will experience this transformation through the filter of their fears and have to address their own energetic alignment and integrity. They will make choices that include us, or not....
The Karmic Tools Weekly Forecast covers the current planetary transits which affect people in different ways and to various degrees of intensity. Take notice when it is a Personal planet (Sun/Moon/Mercury/Venus/Mars) interacting with a Social (Jupiter/Saturn) or Collective planet (Uranus/Neptune/Pluto). And pay extremely close attention when it is a Social plane
Are you experiencing Mercury retrograde madness and mayhem? This is the first retrograde of 2011 which started March 31 and ends on April 23rd although it officially exits its shadow period on May 11. This one seems to be creating more than the usual problems with communication and travel, computers crashing, misplaced items, forgetfulness, etc., probably because it's happening in Aries, the sign of action. While we want to push forward, retrogrades make us slow down, and all of the re- words come into play, re-think, re-consider, re-view, re-member, re-do
Little Mercury moved retrograde on the 30th March. This little planet is quite a powerful influence that so many of us often overlook. Mercury gives each of us an opportunity to focus on our thoughts, and in particular to explore how we think. How often do we berate ourselves? And how often do we congratulate ourselves? Hmm, see what I mean?!
There is so much happening this week that we may feel rushed, tired, overwhelmed and frazzled. In addition to the holiday season, which some people view with mixed feelings because they must spend time with those that they manage to avoid for the rest of the year. For others it is a happy time that allows them to spend time with those they love. For everyone this is the end of a rather challenging year and the beginning of a new journey. This week we have Christmas, the Solstice, Mercury is still retrograde and a powerful full moon.
This mercury retro may be one to remember as we all visit the past in our day and dreams. The visitation of Marley’s ghosts and all of their teachings escort us via a gauntlet thru all time. The ghost of Christmas’s past comes to sup upon this opportunity as a point of profound healing on a personal and planetary cellular level. This retro touches everyone and everything no exceptions. Whatever still bangs around in your cellars and attics comes to announce, a deep healing.
