OracleReport Crescent Moon in Aries/Taurus: expand, grow, struggle, challenge, question
Wise owls, the stars align today to imprint a harmonic of sheer beauty that is almost a fantasy. This energy happens apart from us, so we will benefit no matter where we are on the spectrum of disharmony/harmony. But the effects will be greater if we can suspend, if only for a few hours, feelings in the disharmony range. If we can take our minds high enough above situations, we can see the horizon clearly. Break free from where you are and come to a whole new level with whatever is happening. This may require us to walk away from something (break free from where you are) and come back to it later with a better understanding (whole new level). In a magical way, the energy will transform our consciousness and in turn the reality of the situation. This is how good it is.
Today’s fantasy alignment is courtesy of a Grand Cross between the Moon, the Black Moon, Mars, and Venus just as the Black Moon leaves the last degree of Cancer. It is quite a farewell for her and quite a boon for us. The imprint that can be made is unparalleled. I don’t really know what could be better than the universe giving us a big handful of raw loveliness and saying make it lovelier. But by all means, it is our job today, if only for a short time, to be in love with life. Find something, feel something, see something beautiful about life and living. Step outdoors and connect and mission complete.
OracleReport Balsamic Moon in Capricorn: release, transform, heal, forgive, renew ~ Ruling Mahavidya: Matangi
A re-enchantment of the world transpires today! Early this morning the Sun released one of it’s most powerful flares of the solar cycle – an X4.9 class flare. Interestingly, this flare is courtesy of one of the longest-running sunspots. Sunspots usually last a couple of weeks, but this sunspot has been active since January! It was first named 1944, then 1967, and now 1990. (Each time it transits the Sun it is re-numbered.)
This massive blast serves to close-out the past astrological year like melting a wax seal over a letter or a lead seal over a box. At the same time, it ushers in brand new energy. But the wise Sabian (Gnostic) symbols describe the energy much better than I ever could. The position of the Sun when the flare was released is the degree that says “illuminated by a shaft of light, a large cross lies on rocks surrounded by sea and mist.”
The flare is the shaft of light. It is up to each of us to determine what “a large cross lies on rocks surrounded by sea and mist” means for us. Ultimately, are your hopes dashed or do you see a hopeful sign? Is it both?
OracleReport New Moon in Aries: begin, initiate, seed, wish
As the opening to this month of watery nebulousness continues, today it is powerfully true that things are not always as they seem. Despite what is being shown on the outside or to everyone else, other things are happening inside or behind the scenes.
Issues of worthiness and whether what is being offered is worthy underlies today’s energy. This is due in large part to the Sun making exact conjunction with Chiron today and pressing on our wounds or creating new ones. When Chiron is involved, we need to take care that we are not lingering into self-sabotaging or self-destructive behavior (including thought patterns).
NEW MOON is in Pisces on March 1, 2014 12:00 AM PST.
We are called back into the watery realms of Spirit to take a moment to just Be and feel all that is… So much has been moving, shifting, transforming. This Moon cycle calls us to pause, rest and reflect.
Tune in, feel the fullness and feel yourself held in this moment of infinite Beingness. Lots of planetary shifts occurring so stay grounded and connected to Mother Earth.
Here are the MYSTIC MAMMA Astral Insights from the most tuned in readers of the planetary movements.
“We’ve come to the end of the astrological year, diving into the deep ocean of Pisces from the starry heights of Aquarius. The ocean is the womb where life first arose on our beautiful planet Earth. The ocean also symbolizes the collective unconscious, the womb of our spiritual heritage and past life karma as well as the collective database of all experience and wisdom of life here on Earth.
The astrology of March features a once-more closing in of Uranus and Pluto in their volatile square combination, plus the retrogrades of Mars — only just beginning in late Libra — and Mercury, officially ended but still in its retrograde shadow until the 21st. As in the previous month of February, we are therefore inner oriented. Uranus is also given a boost by a stationing Jupiter in exact square to Uranus and in opposition to Pluto. The trauma of these times is indeed closely related to Uranus and Pluto coming down, in their storied square, to wrest us from our complacency and get us to ask the difficult questions of ourselves such as where do we need to be learning and growing, as we shuck off behavior that has no real utility for us any longer in our more evolved understanding of ourselves. In this way, we are all going through some degree of future shock, based on our own continuing evolution, to the point where we no longer even recognize our former selves.
This is an exciting month of March, because while we are turning further to the unconscious side of our being, in order to examine our inner workings more closely, we are also venturing out upon new psychological territory that is new and daring. This concept is reflected in the close Uranus-Jupiter square that is near exact for the entire month and on throughout April. Its moment of exact comes next month, on the 20th, magically just as Pluto and Uranus form their exact square at very nearly the same degree and minute of their own respective signs. Meanwhile, Mars in Libra in its retrograde motion comes quite close to exactly opposing Uranus. As we prepare for this cosmic event, hailed by many as the “cardinal grand cross,” still to come next month, we have in March a very strong dose of Uranus and Jupiter, closely aspected by the Pisces New Moon, indicating that brilliant ideas come to us with more frequency than even lately. These are accompanied by synchronicities that signal their symbolic resonance with meaningful change to take place in our thoughts and eventually our deeds and in a revitalized organization for our society.
OracleReport Balsamic Moon in Aquarius: release, transformation, healing, compassion, forgiveness ~ Ruling Mahavidya: Matangi
Praise the Kali’s, Mercury stations direct around 9:00 am EST/ 2:00 pm UTC! Mercury retrograde always does an overhaul of our minds, so it will be nice to slingshot forward once again, integrating the way we now see and understand things. Masks, veils, shrouds, covers, and blinders were removed since Mercury’s retrograde on February 6, 2014. Naturally these things were difficult to see or handle because they have been hidden for a long, long while. Today we will definitely feel the shift out of that energy.
Remember that the day a planet stations retrograde OR DIRECT is usually hectic, especially retrogrades and directs of Mercury, which interfere with communications, electronics, or travel. Extra patience is usually needed. The jump out of Mercury retrograde is usually such a relief that it enables us to handle frustration better.
But we aren’t free of the big retrogrades altogether; we have two big ones in process – Mars and Saturn! Painfully, Mars has been slowing to a virtual standstill. It “stops moving” around high noon EST/ 5:00 pm on March 2, 2014, and then goes retrograde or appears to move backward in the sky. When the Planet of Action comes to a standstill, the pressure build-up is enormous. Tension is produced by the constricted vibrations. You can see this reflected on the geopolitical stage, which should be carefully observed right now because it is setting up for the new astrological year which will be HISTORIC in the timeline of humanity. The New Moon in Aries on March 30, 2014 is the beginning of the natural new year.
Saturn, home of the Archons will station retrograde the same day Mars stations retrograde, about three hours later. This is a story for another day. It’s a big story.
OracleReport Third Quarter Moon in Capricorn: revise, realign, take responsibility ~ Ruling Mahavidya: Matangicats
The Moon moves into Capricorn for the last time while the Black Moon is in Cancer, so this is the last “rebirth” stage for Cancers and Capricorns and those with the Black Moon in Cancer or Capricorn. Issues related to support, appreciation, and recognition strongly flavor today and tomorrow’s energy.
Today is also effectively the last day of the 2013 astrological year that began on April 10. Tomorrow we enter the Balsamic phase of the Moon, when we prepare the soil or field of our minds for the next lunar month.
The next lunar month, the New Moon in Pisces cycle, is like a month-long Balsamic phase. We will working very hard in preparation for the next astrological new year (which begins on March 30, 2013, and is going to be a big one. I am not even going to attempt talking about it until Mercury goes direct in a few days. But when I do, I am going to take us back to the point when we launched from the Rainbow Bridge in last month’s story with the band of brothers.).
OracleReport Third Quarter Moon in Sagittarius: revise, re-align, re-evaluate, take ~ Ruling Mahavidya: Matangi
Technically, we come to the last Moon phase of the astrological/natural year with today’s opening of the Third Quarter Moon phase. This phase lasts until Tuesday, February 25, when the Balsamic Moon phase begins, effectively beginning preparation for the next astrological/natural new year. So we have the next few days to clean up and close out anything from this past year (or longer) that we want to energetically leave behind.
I am sure it feels like I’ve been writing this same thing over and over. In fact, I have for the last two months, as these have been the “Third Quarter time of year.” It’s a process and it takes time because we have to work within it as the Moon ticks through each of our charts throughout the months. It resonates differently on different days for different people. This is the explanation for why, with oracles, the message you get is the message you need. It also explains why messages delivered by oracles often seem disjointed. Multiple layers of answers are found in them.
Saturday’s Last Quarter Moon, with the Sun conjunct numinous Neptune in Pisces and the Moon in square from Sagittarius, is another in the recent series of interesting lunations. This phase in any case represents a reevaluation of what has gone before during the three preceding weeks of the lunation cycle, in what seminal Western astrologer Dane Rudhyar called a “crisis in consciousness.” We are therefore engaged, in one way or another, in summing up our experience thus far into a seed idea to carry forward. Our next cycle is signaled by the coming New Moon of February 28th that stimulates, once again, Uranus and Pluto in their storied square alignment presaging radical changes in our society and for individuals. Bringing Neptune into this equation, we are trying our best to understand in spiritual terms the current societal dilemma. It may in fact be true that as awareness grows concerning our true situation, all our troubles are paving the way for a better world to eventually emerge.
