New crescent moon sighting in Jerusalem

20120917-184134.jpg

The new crescent moon as seen from Jerusalem on Monday evening heralds the onset of the new Kabbalistic Year 5773, the Year of Great Delight (ע״ג) and a re-entrance to the Garden of Eden (ג״ע).

The new moon chart for Monday night is actually much friendlier than the one for Sunday night. While Sunday night was the astrological dark moon, when no moon is apparent in the night sky, Monday night is the first crescent moon and is the astrological marker for the new month and new year in the Kabbalistic calendar.

The new moon is now in harmony with Jupiter in Gemini, fostering more channels between mind and heart and a certain comfort in living from the heart and letting the heart lead the mind rather than stand at odds with it. The moon is also in harmony with Chiron and deep healing is taking place in those area where we may feel we had no strength or creativity of our own to heal, we are simply being served opportunities and scenarios by the universe that do much of the healing for us. All we need to do is hold on and trust that the divine is right by our side, that we are never alone, and moreover, that we are the ones were been waiting for, that the real site of certainty, wholeness, health and connection is lying patiently within for us to gently turn to and get to know.

The moon is paying a visit to Saturn in Libra before Saturn continues on to Scorpio on October 6th. This will be a shift for many, especially those experiencing their first or second Saturn returns or with planets or rising signs in Scorpio. On a societal level, Saturn in Scorpio will begin to download ancient secrets in an esteemed and respectable manner and the world will begin to turn an ear to that which has been dismissible. It is for this reason that the moon is stopping by and delivering some intuitive magic to the authority of secrets so that the transmission be authentic and honorable at the same time. We truly live in historic times and the stars are conspiring to awaken us on an individual and collective level. Those who identify as lightbearers need only keep in mind that they are never truly alone, and the more obstacles they encounter on their invaluable path, the more stores of light open up in their internal switchboard and the more the sense of wonder will be in days to come.

May all have a sweet new year, and may you witness the glorious light within you!

October 28th 2011 and the Culmination of the Mayan Calendar in Astrology

Today (Friday) is the first day of the dawning of unity consciousness that has never been experienced before–not even by the Divine itself. The awareness that will unfold in the coming moments, hours, days, weeks, months and years is the culmination of all of human history and the very purpose of Creation. Let’s take a look at the chart for this momentous day (noon, 28 October 2011, Jerusalem):

A few comments on the chart:

1) Neptune and Chiron in 1st first house: If this was a person’s chart, I would say that this person’s identity will be excavated only through deep processes of spiritual healing, in which spiritual growth accelerates healing and vice versa, throughout life, while all the time amassing robustness of personality and self-knowledge, even though they may be delayed until the fruits of healing blossom. This person’s sense of self in this sense would be almost retrospective, realizing who they have become, only in light of how far they have come, while the needle-point of their personality in this moment will be a sort of blind spot, hidden by the burden of soul demands and healing processes churning deep within almost incessantly. Since we are talking about a global scale, and not just an individual person, we may say that the changes which are going to be taking place during this time may happen with an initial lack of self-consciousness, in the sense that they may whisk us away into new modes of being without our even realizing the massive tidal waves of change taking place within and without. It’s almost as if the news will be reporting that a new dawn has broken, but it will be in the guise of normalcy, such that only if we painstakingly compare one moment to the next we will realize the magnitude of what is taking place. This comparing however, is altogether unneccessary, as the level of self-consciousness that we are used to having of events and change is miniscule compared to the awareness that is being birthed through the changes that are unfolding. In other words, it may be better if we do not take diligent notes of what is happening, because the ‘we’ that is taking these notes is exactly what is dissolving into purer form. We will not lose our individuality, in the same way that a person with Neptune and Chiron in the 1st does not lose themselves; rather, the reigns are given over to the deeper, wiser and eternal forces that stimulate expansion and healing. The fact that Chiron is in Pisces only accentuates the fogginess that will be felt, but the guideline is the same: there is a light that is strong enough to shine in this fog, and that is what we are looking for, rather than try to make our dim lights try to penetrate that which is more refined, we keep our eyes out for the rays that carry the vibration of all that we are yearning for and all that we have been promised for eternity.

2) Neptune and Chiron opposite Mars in Leo in the 7th house: Counter to the sense of losing ourself in foggy, confused, amorphous anticipation is a strong, direct and bold desire to exert ourselves and be seen, to shine in our glory and to move forward with precision and selfhood. Could these two impulses be any more opposed? Not really. Moreover, they are both aggravated by an incessant probing energy, seeking to go deeper and deeper into every conflict, tension and potential minefield, by the Mercury-Venus-Moon stellium in Scorpio (10th house). Deep emotional and mental probing, questioning and circling, a loss of a limited sense of self in the onset of higher dimensions of being and becoming, and a persistent desire to be seen, accepted and loved for all that we are–these make up the heated T-square of the day. The answer to balancing these energies may life in the realms of creativity and grounding, embodied by Taurus in the 4th house of home, and Gemini in the 5th house of creativity and children. Strive to be like a child, give up trying to take notes and keep track, be who you are in the moment with less censorship, and let the processes carry themselves out. You may find that traditional, biologically-evolutionary linked activities such as cooking, cleaning, putting things in their place, marking territory, and gathering with your tribe, are comforting and reassuring. Just be sure to let your streak of individuality reign free in all that you do. This will be your breath of fresh air, in every moment.

3) Saturn in Libra may be what saves the day, exerting an all-too-necessary force of restraint and balance on these pressure points in the chart. Everything is being weighed and accounted for, everything is finding its place — parts of ourselves within, parts of our lives, nations across the world, and all the words themselves. While our instinct may be to accelerate all forces of healing and probe to the depths and salvage all that we can, there is a force in the background that is ever-present and ever-aware of the natural place of all things, of the perfection of being that vibrates calmly and radiates balance and harmony. Because of this, all of our busy-bee running around may be necessary to prove to ourselves that something is happening…but once we realize and affirm the newness of what is becoming, then everything may in fact become quite calm. Almost like a two-year-old having a tantrum; the moment they realize that they are seen, they can revert to carefree joy and content as if nothing had ever ticked them in the first place. Find your pillars and stability and stillness–these as always will be precious footholds on the mountain stretching up to the heavens before you.

Blessings on your journey,
