OracleReport Third Quarter Moon in Aquarius: revise, realign Ruling Mahavidya: Chinnamasta and Kali
- Skill: look beyond the surface to the gold underneath things
- Negative Imprint: self-sabotage
- Positive Imprint: assisting others
So far this week we’ve had emotional storms, the rainbow after the storm, and today we have “the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.” This is the symbol for the degree of the Sun today, and it is also the degree of the Chiron Point. Chiron involves wounding and healing, teaching, self-sacrifice, self-sabotage, bridges, the arts of war, early childhood and the inner child, all things related to the hands, systems of the body (chakras, acupuncture meridians, etc.), past lives, alchemy, and fusion of heaven and Earth.
For all of the pain that accompanies Chiron, there is always a promise of healing. This is the promise today.
But we are most interested in the gold of the soul – wisdom. Today this will come from sharing, communicating, and expressing with others. Relief from Chiron’s pressures comes when we focus on what we can offer others. Surprisingly, in the process, we gain precious wisdom about ourselves. The ancient motto of the Mystery Schools – know yourself, know the universe – certainly comes into effect when we engage Chiron. Continue reading
Tuesday night after midnight on the west coast (later if further east by the number of hours from PDT) the Last Quarter Moon perfects with the Sun in early Taurus and the Moon in Aquarius. This phase represents a period of thoughtful reexamination of everything that has come before it, and arrives in the midst of an exciting time, as we go through the wringer of the cardinal cross involving Uranus and Pluto colliding in square alignment, as are also the Sun and Moon. These potent outer planets occupy respectively the signs of Aries and of Capricorn, representing intuitional identity versus structure. As we mull things over, we are summoning up more than just the past few weeks, perhaps rather the past few years, as we try to see ahead to the top of the mountain that we are currently climbing. As we — in symbolic chime with the energy of this quarter moon — meditate on our situation, we are also attempting to assess that plateau that we have reached amidst the stages of our own developmental cycle, and in the turning of the ages, as we strive as a culture toward the new beginning represented by this 21st century’s second decade.
The sign of Aries represents how we self-identify, and how we move forward in a way that is consistent with our most deeply held values. Capricorn is about the very structure of our lives, rooted in tradition and cultural conditioning, and as an earth sign is particularly resistant to inevitable change. Uranus and Pluto, residing there, are shaking up these facets of life. These areas are evolving on both personal and societal levels with every hit of this storied square. Their rulers, Saturn and Mars, are also prominent, with Saturn, ruling Capricorn, and highlighted in Pluto’s sign of Scorpio, characterizing another powerful symbol of transformation. Mars is moving backward now through Libra, the sign of partnership, imparting that we need the reflection of ourselves that we find in the mirror of relationship for a most useful accompaniment to our own process of growth.

Happy Earth Day!
After yesterday’s emotional storms, like a rainbow, today offers signs of hope. Reassurance from higher sources comes to help us see promises for the future. For this we take in the spectrum of the colors of our lives – the brighter ones and the dimmer ones. They aren’t all bold and they aren’t all dull.
But it can be a challenge, in these times, to see a rainbow – to see hope. It can be challenging to dwell in a joyous mindspace. Our emotions can carry us off, ungrounding us. We can become battered.

- Skill: remember that you are not your emotions
- Negative Imprint: projecting emotions onto others
- Positive Imprint: handling our own emotional storms
Emotional storms, outbursts, and breaks tend to result from today’s energy, as things are in need of release. Our emotions may come upon us abruptly and the tendency is to feel out of control. But cool heads can prevail to keep things in moderation. If something is welling up inside of you, take steps to move those emotions through your body. Tension and anxiety build with the astrological energies that are in effect today. We are mindful of this and recognize if emotional waves begin to build. If a storm is swirling inside of you, don’t project it onto others. Deal with the emotions. What is the truth, the heart, of what you feel? Is there something that you need to do or say?
A sub-theme of this energy involves feeling like the best is over and nothing will ever be as good as it was (at some individually designated time in the past). We may feel like something has been forever lost to us. In fact, the energy continues to support bringing back elements of the past that were very happy or invigorating. A re-enchantment can take place.

Sophia and Sabaoth speak! Sophia (the Gnostic name of the being embodied as the Earth) and Sabaoth (the Gnostic name of the being embodied as the Sun who is an ally of Sophia) speak all the time; sometimes we are able to hear better. Sabaoth released an M7-class solar flare at 10:07 am ET/1:07 pm UT Friday, April 18. This is an extremely strong flare and it will overtake two less powerful flares already en route to the spheres of Earth (atmosphere, magnetosphere, stratosphere) this weekend. We picked up or received this stellar pulse immediately yesterday, but the effects build as the energy gets closer to our planet this weekend. The energy of this flare is encapsulated in the image of the Sabian symbol for 9 degrees of Sagittarius (the position of the Moon at the time of the flare – the most accurate indicator). This image is a mother leads her small child step by step up the stairs. Sophia, our mother planet, is assisting. She always does this in her role as our mother planet – our incubator. She provides all the conditions for life and growth, and we are lucky because she happens to be a beautiful planet and we reap the eye candy of this. But I digress. Not only are Sophia and Sabaoth directly engaged in how we experience life – how we grow as beings – but they also want us to know that they are doing this. The ancient code of the Sabian symbols, lost in time but recovered by the novelty of the human spirit and its close kinship with Spirit, is one language of communication. Continue reading
Laura writes ~ My friend, astrologer Timothy Glenn, returns with a spirited update on the next Uranus Square Pluto — the fifth in a series of seven. Reading this article reminded me of hisHeliocentric Square piece about the significance of November 23, 2013. Light bulb! I have been saying for months that I was never so glad to finish a month as I was to get through November 2013. I had completely forgotten about that as an astrological hinge point. No wonder I’ve felt like coasting downhill since that month ended.
Anyway, back to April 2014, which most Earth-centric astrologers have pegged as hugely significant. Indeed, we have loads of energies influencing us right now! I always enjoy how Tim describes planetary actions like a great big, crazy family and friends reunion. What will Uncle Jupiter do next?! Will Uranus and Jupiter gang up on Mars? Tim’s wonderful humor and wisdom put these wild energies into perspective. Enjoy the ride!
Uranus Square Pluto Part Five: A Grand Cross to Bear
Timothy Glenn ~ The most powerful astrological influence of our time takes quite a bit of time, which contributes to its influence being so powerful. Even here in the heart of this transit (the seven exact squares of the planets of evolution and revolution) more than two and a half years elapse. The first exact square of Uranus to Pluto occurred on June 24, 2012. The seventh will put the cap on the process on March 16, 2015.

- Skill: think before speaking
- Negative Imprint: attacking
- Positive Imprint: supporting
Mercury moves to the Eris Point today, bringing the tendency to say things before thinking. Usually these are things that have been bubbling under the surface and need to be said or they are things that we can no longer tolerate. The energy prompts us to think about freeing ourselves from something. Eris energy gets to the core of what’s wrong and attempts to rectify the matter. It can get rather dramatic. The best guidance is to keep respect and dignity in mind. Are you attacking or defending? Keep in mind that we are easily annoyed today, and give things space before acting out.
People will use the power of words to dominate others. These people feel challenged and threatened by other people’s talents, skills, and strengths. Continue reading
Djwhal Khul here. Tashi Delek.
Alright. I was looking for a simple title for all of the occurrences this week and the only one I can come up with is “Holy Smokes!”.
We have made it through the Full Moon of the Christ, the first of four blood moons and the energies are still strong. They get more and more profound as we go through here. So we have Easter of course impacting that; then we have number 5 of 7 of the Uranus-Pluto squares the very next day. Then we have Earth Day, the end of Passover. And then the very next day the Cardinal Grand Cross.
So this is the kind of week where really it can all fall apart and come back together again or it could just all come together.

Today the Sun reaches the degree known as “the music of the spheres.” The world of spirit attaches to our inner realm and communicates to us. From this, wisdom is gained.
In contrast to the past few days’ intense energy, this energy is positively ethereal. Our inner selves are on a magic carpet ride through the changes that come from lasting transformation. We are wise to refrain from judging or evaluating whether things are going well for us or not. Instead, we recognize that we are gaining wisdom from the process. Even if it feels like a pattern is repeating and you are failing, this is not the case.
