Laurie Baum, MSW ~ Autumn Equinox 2014

LaurieBaum2Greetings! The Autumn Equinox, the day when the light of day is equal to the dark of night, arrives on Monday, September 22.

We are entering a period when the dark of night will overtake the light of day, symbolizing our ability at this time of year to shine the light of awareness on our thoughts and feelings that dwell in the shadows of our minds.

The power of the changing angle of the Sun at the Autumn Equinox also intensifies the potency of your prayers and affirmations at the change of seasons. You can make much spiritual progress during this period.

Visualize light coming into any darkness in your life or in the lives of others. Imagine positive outcomes that are in the highest good of all.

Pray for divine assistance in all you do — and for greater peace and harmony across the globe.

The highlight of the Fall Season is a positive alignment of lucky Jupiter in Leo and revolutionary Uranus in Aries on Thursday, September 25.

Expect to make more changes, ultimately of a positive nature … at an accelerating pace.
We are learning to let go of the past and to release expectations that life will return to “normal.” We are not going back to the past, but instead, we are entering a bright new age. Unfortunately, vestiges of the old way, of the old paradigm of military, financial, psychological or physical domination by a select few, are getting stronger as consciousness rises up to meet these forces. We are preparing to clear away inequalities from the past to make space for a more egalitarian society. Continue reading

Oracle Report ~ Saturday, September 20 – Sunday, September 21, 2014

“The notion of being careful with what you wish for because you just may get it is strongly in effect this weekend. The power of the mind to imprint reality is optimal, so we want to be clear in our desires.” – L Walker



Balsamic Moon in Leo/Virgo: release ~ Ruling Madavidyas: Shodashi and Matangi

Skill: embrace the new, release the old

Negative Imprints: locked into limitations, not using common sense, emotional insensitivity, rigid thinking, projection, allowing others to shape us, competetion, scattered

Positive Imprints: ancient wisdom, analysis, answers, signs, integration, tempering with love, focus, staying true to the self, processing information, observance, opportunities

The Moon will make its once-a-month conjunction with the Black Moon Saturday at 8:30 pm ET/12:30 am UT. Shadow sides will come forth for recognition and integration. Everyone’s shadow sides are pushed to the forefront, some more than others depending on the other aspects happening in their charts.

Fears about change and issues of power (especially power struggles) accompany this energy, but the personal core fear in each of us is activated. Instincts are triggered, producing a potential for drama. People will project their own feelings onto others, avoiding taking personal responsibility. Emotions always run higher when the Moon and the Black Moon come together. (For more information on your personal shadow side see my book on the Black Moon available for free at www.oraclereport.com.)

Signs, synchronicities and symbols deliver important information during Balsamic Moon phases, but these communications are more active Saturday. Saturday’s energy delivers information to us and Sunday’s energy has us putting that into practice. Sunday’s energy also brings the power of precision-focus to complete tasks or unfinished business.

Balsamic Moon in Leo: dream ~ Ruling Mahavidya: Shodashi (Goddess of Beauty) and Matangi (Goddess of the Wind)

Skill: release what has not worked

Negative Imprint: dominating others thoughts, indecision based on multiple options, need for absolute truth or proof, imbalance, jealousy, pushiness, avoiding personal responsibility

Positive Imprint: equilibrium, fertility, lofty heights of creativity, fulfillment, grounded power, force of pure intent, assistance from spiritual sources, curiosity, beauty

Balsamic Moon phase is the time when we not only weed our “mental garden,” the landscape of our minds, but also envision several options of what we might want the new garden to look like.

To facilitate this, lofty heights of creativity are reached under today’s energy. This means we have abundant power to weed out and release whatever no longer contributes to the vibrant life of our mental garden and its parallel expression in the outer world.

The feelings, thoughts, beliefs, outcomes, circumstances, and consequences that have developed in your life since the New Moon in Aries (the astrological new year which began on March 30, 2014) can be removed. They can be pulled out – weeded out – under today’s energetics. Continue reading

“Today’s energetics favor taking things slowly and methodically.  There is no need to rush.  The most effective way to do this is to stay in the moment.  Attach to the peaceful elements underlying this energy.” -L Walker

earthAscendingBalsamic Moon in Cancer/Leo: dream ~ Ruling Mahavidya: Shodashi (The Goddess of Beauty) and Matangi (Goddess of the Wind)

Skill: find beauty

Negative Imprint: neglect, smugness, tantrums, overstating issues, elitism, condescension, disasters, projection of feelings onto others to avoid personal responsibility

Positive Imprint: fruition, quiet knowing, catharsis, sharing time, friendship, celebration, reaping rewards, inspiration, creativity, nourishment, mystery

Like an explosion, new inspirations, opportunities, ideas, and thoughts blow through us today.  It’s a rapid-fire tour de force, but it carries a high degree of elegance.  This is the signature of the Wisdom Goddess Shodashi, the Goddess of Beauty, who washes over us today to lift us into a dream.

This is timed precisely with the dreamy Balsamic phase of the Moon, which enters today.  Balsamic phase is the “phase between time” when the veils between the worlds are diaphanous.  It is the time to surrender and release into the mystic.  It is a time of refreshment of hopes, wishes, and dreams.

Henry Seltzer ~ A Last Quarter Moon Time Of Thoughtful Action

” . . . Venus aspects Pluto and closely opposes Chiron, bringing shadowy and relatively unknown parts of ourselves to our attention. We all have these dark areas within us, the result of repressed prior wounding, crying out to come forward into the light of increased awareness. The circulation of consciousness through these hidden places is extremely valuable.” – H Seltzer

HenrySeltzerMonday evening’s Last Quarter Moon is an interesting and thoughtful lunation, with potentially an impulsive side, resulting in unexpected activity and inner exploration. This is because the trickster energy of Uranus is once more emphasized, located in the middle degrees of Aries. The nature of this phase also represents something of a curve ball, when we are reevaluating what has gone before this moment in the lunar cycle. We may be re-thinking nearly everything that has taken place in our lives over the course of a rather intense three weeks. Furthermore, as we do so, we are likely to be paying closer attention to our inner world and its ancient trauma, as signaled by the presence of Chiron, the Wounded Healer, at the middle degree of Pisces and aspected by Uranus and also by Venus and Jupiter. This important configuration could therefore signal a time when we take heed of the dark places that we are able to detect inside us.

Mars is also newly entered into Sagittarius, a compatible Fire sign with Aries, the sign that he rules, and where we currently find Uranus. The impulse for action is clear. Uranus is also aspected by Mars, a sesquiquadrate, while Venus, Jupiter and Saturn make significant aspects to Uranus. This Uranian emphasis implies surprising events that have the potential to nudge us further in the direction of new and different perspectives upon our situation, and the symbolism promises as well that the power of deep intuition could now come to our aid to guide us.

Full Moon in Pisces/Aries: realization

Ruling Mahavidya: Shodashi (Goddess Who Fulfills Highest Desire) and Matangi (Goddess of the Wind)

Skill: flow with the energy instead of trying to drive it

Negative Imprint: overblown feelings, doubts about personal capabilities, feeling out of one’s depth, continually searching for information at the expense of inner wisdom

Positive Imprint: laser-like powers to cut through and reveal, learning from the past, choosing differently, openness to inspiration

About an hour before the Full Moon, at 8:39 pm EDT/12:39 am UTC last night, the Sun released an M4.5- class flare with coronal mass ejection (CME).

At that time, the Moon was located at 15 Pisces 35 right in line with Chiron at 15 Pisces 20.  In other words, the Moon, an hour away from supermax, had just met up with Chiron, picking up all of Chiron’s energy – all that Chiron had to offer.

The Sabian symbol for this degree is “in a quiet moment, a creative individual experiences the flow of inspiration.”  This symbol is a perfect explanation of how this month’s ruling Wisdom Goddess Shodashi works.  Continue reading

Henry Seltzer ~ A Mystical and Confounding Full Moon

FullMoon3Monday evening’s Full Moon represents an opportunity and also a challenge, because the Sun and Moon, aligned along the Virgo-Pisces axis in middle of their respective signs, are also aligned with tiny Chiron, currently occupying the 16th degree of Pisces. Venus is now in Virgo as well, and almost exactly opposes Neptune in the early degrees of Pisces. There is also a ton of built-up energy revealed in this Full Moon configuration by a Yod to Jupiter in Leo from Pluto and the Moon/Neptune midpoint, producing a definite feeling of angst and inchoate desire. The Full Moon by the nature of this lunar phase typifies the fulfillment of the first half the lunar cycle that began with the Virgo New Moon of August 25th. There is therefore a culmination of some arc of development that began two weeks ago.

Since the previous New Moon opposed the numinous energies of Neptune, also in Pisces, and the ruler of this sensitive sign, we have recently been dealing with a great deal of disconnect over real-world practical concerns and indulging as well in a mystical stepping back and away from the world, into inner reverie. There has been a good dose of Saturn in the picture of this two-week period also, with accompanying inevitable frustration of having the unseen dimension of life so close to heart and yet at times so unapproachable. We have also had the confusion of having to deal with ordinary reality with heart and even head so far removed from mundane matters and far off in the clouds of Spiritual wisdom that is a form of unknowing.

“Regardless of what transpires, we remain, all month long, under the protective guidance of two “angels” – in this case the aspects of Gaia Sophia that are Shodashi and Matangi.” – L Walker



Full Moon in Pisces: fulfillment ~ Ruling Mahavidya: Shodashi (Goddess Who Fulfills Our Highest Desire) and Matangi (Goddess of the Wind)

Skill: follow the lead of higher guidance; neutralize fear and anxiety

Negative Imprint: explosions, suppression, resistance, pressure, anger, religious fanaticism, lack of perspective, self-sabotage, quitting, high risk, too much noise

Positive Imprint: aspirations, inspiration, exchange, unity, morale, catharsis, renewed faith, clearer path, wisdom, subtlety, ESP

The Full Moon phase enters tonight at 9:39 pm ET/1:39 am UT but the energy builds toward it all day.  This Full Moon is a supermoon.

At the Full Moon, the Sun will be passing through the 17th degree of Virgo, the energy of which the Sabian symbols describe as “a volcanic eruption.”  This energy always runs hot, creating catharsis and change.  Any feelings, thoughts, ideas, words, and actions that have been suppressed or bubbling just under the surface tend to come out.  This is in effect not just today, but during the entire Full Moon phase (September 8 – 11).

Also in effect during the entire Full Moon phase is the influence of Chiron’s close conjunction with the Moon.  Chiron-related issues of wounding (particularly self-sabotage), self-neglect, retreat from ordinary reality, crisis, early childhood trauma, past lives, and also HEALING and TEACHING are expressed.  Continue reading

Big waves of super sensitivity roll in under this Full Pisces Moon, evoking dreams, longings and lots of good art, music and poetry. Extra rest and kindness all around go a long way to quell anxieties. Clarify boundaries and evaluate priorities so the best of your attention is applied toward improvements in your life. Nature’s seasonal nuances are a real pleasure, inspiring outdoor activity.

Several planetary sign changes have taken place the first week of September. Mercury moved into fair-play Libra late on the 1st, initiating numerous conversations, negotiations and points of view. As it moves into the range of the world-shaking Uranus-Pluto Square right after the Full Moon, the Libran Scales tip in some newsworthy way. The sweep of destiny is in the news, with unprecedented mergers and liaisons changing the playing field. Some of this activity may be fueled by outspoken revolutionary spirit and by new technologies. There are likely to be public demonstrations, possibly extended ones. Some angry rabble-rousers and rogue elements will make trouble, but others dialogue for win-win solutions.

Venus entered reserved, yet sensual Virgo on the 5th, in a timely manner to contribute lovely, romantic, mystical sensations to the Full Moon. Opposite Neptune, Venus brings its rare wavelengths down to Earth. With the help of Earth Goddess Virgo, we evaluate our priorities. The best of our attention is applied to make improvements in our lives. As we love our deep and true selves more deeply and truly, we make increasingly resonant choices in our lives. We hear reverberations of distant celestial music. Continue reading
