This week, within the Eclipse Cycle, we experience a powerful alignment: the Cardinal Grand Cross.
There are many who have written about the astrological perspectives of this alignment, and you can enhance your participation, if you feel inclined, by reading some of those on sites such as Spirit Library.
You can also simply live your life, and listen to your heart and your body and do as you’re inspired and you will receive everything you can use and benefit from, as this alignment takes place.
I want to encourage us, more and more, to really get how natural this whole Ascension Pathway is for us. Our bodies, are leading the way and we can follow. In the recent Soar Fest focused on Freedom, we were encouraged to let go of controlling life or trying to make things happen. It’s an invitation I’ll extend to all of us, today too. In living this way, we are more fully present to ourselves and to what is happening. Because we’re within our own energy, paying attention and open.

There is much talk of the intense influences around this month. What with a total lunar eclipse on 15th, a Cardinal Grand Cross on 23rd/24th followed by a solar eclipse to round the month off on 28th/29th, yes, there’s plenty to excite! And of course, as with most things in life, these alignments do not just appear out of nowhere on the day in question, but instead build gradually towards a climax of fulfilment and fruition, before just as gradually falling away into nothingness once more. If we take the analogy of child-birth, we could say that right now labour has begun but there’s a way to go yet. Come the lunar eclipse things are speeding up and the birth is imminent. The Grand Cross sees the arrival of new life and the solar eclipse brings the full awareness of what this new beginning means for us and every aspect of our life. Suffice to say we have an intense few weeks ahead, but at the end of it lies the potential for a shift of both personal and collective orientation which could, in due course, change the course of history. Of course, history can be changed in all manner of ways, positive or negative, and neither course is set in stone. It really is up to us at this juncture and there are some interesting and enlightening challenges ahead!
March 30, 2014 – New Moon in Aries
Aries! Ah, I’ve been away from these communiqués for so long, and there is sooo much going on in April 2014, I don’t even know where to begin! So I will start at the very beginning: today we have the New Moon in Aries. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, the sign of Spring and new beginnings; and the new moon carries the energy of new beginnings as well. The New Moon in Aries is a very good place to start, every year as a matter of fact. And what is starting today is kind of like a heat-seeking missile. Sheesh, this month is crazy!
Mars Retrograde in Libra Continues
I outlined some ideas on Mars Retro in my previous newsletter here: http://ow.ly/v9WdF
Mars went retrograde on March 1, 2014, and it is now plowing into full-on retrograde territory. It will be retrograde through May 19, 2014. The total effect of Mars retrograde will be felt through the end of July, however. This is an unusually long stay in any given sign for Mars.
Not to mention that the Uranus-Pluto Square (5th contact of 7) occurs this month and it is turned into a T-Square and a Cardinal Cross due to the shenanigans of the backward-looking Warrior Planet (striving to be a peacemaker) during this tumultuous month.
The last time Mars was Retrograde was two years ago, from January 2012 through April 2012 – at that time it was in the sign of Virgo. In addition, it takes 15 years for Mars to return and be retrograde in the same part of the Zodiac. The last time it did a retrograde loop in this area of the zodiac (Libra) was from March 1999 at 12 Scorpio, to June 1999 at 24 Libra.
Do you remember what shifted in your life at both of these time intervals? What area of your chart and life will be targeted this time?
My dear friends, I think I can speak on behalf of all of us when I say that these past few weeks and more specifically these past few days of the solar eclipse have been rather rough and have led us to specific insights and to situations that can only contribute to our evolution. In my point of view (and I feel this personally as well) we are currently dealing with a very intense energy wave which is straining at times but nevertheless something we can cope with. I especially notice it around me in “Living together”conditions with others (in my case living with my children) and I can easily see the effects this energy shift has on them and I have to learn how to deal with it in conjunction with my own process and that of friends and family.
All in all, it is sometimes difficult to remain in a balanced state or to regain it. HOWEVER what I find highly effective is to retreat yourself temporarily and to go within, to feel yourself in that moment and to just be without any obligations or expectations. To enjoy yourself, to take care of yourself, to open yourself up. Being quiet and giving yourself completely in full trust to the currents of energy flowing through you all the while being aware that you are those energies.
You cannot keep this source of energy from flowing and moving into who you really are lest you remain fixed in this duality (denial, separation and density). You want to expand, to flow and to ascend : you, being an energy, want to break free out of the box (dense physical body) but simultaneously you keep yourself locked in this box. As a result you are becoming restless because you want to grow, you want to break free and for some reason or another this doesn’t happen. You don’t see that it is you who is holding you back and keeping you fixed. I have a feeling that it is with this inward struggle we truly are getting a helping hand. Dare to have faith in yourself (your Divine Self not your alter ego) and in your guides closest to you; they are so very near and palpable even recognizable and in plain sight.
Saint Germain is going to talk about this process which we are all going through at present and I get the impression that we won’t take short cuts but that we will go through a very intense, deep and rather long process (not that it takes a long time in earthly time as time is going rapidly now, I mean it is not going to be a process in a day or 2) with all the upcoming portals and the energetic inflows coupled with Retrograde positions of certain planets. Breathe deeply in and out. Much love, Méline and Saint Germain
Saint Germain ~ (channeled on Nov.6th)
Greetings my dearly beloved friends, this is Saint Germain coming through. With pride and with so much love for your Being I step forward with the most loving and best intentions to hearten all of you and to encourage you so that you can brace yourselves for the present very challenging moments and processes that are now in front of you.
Blessings my friend,
It’s a privilege for me to share the sacred moment of now with you again.
So much has happened since the last time we checked in with each other, and I’m excited to share it all with you.
In last month’s Energy Forecast, it was mentioned that the end of September to mid-October would serve as a time of rest and relaxation. That time period provided us with the opportunity to prepare for the energy shift that began a few days before the October 18th Penumbral Lunar Eclipse and is in full bloom now.
The Significance of the Lunar Eclipse
The recent Penumbral Lunar Eclipse created a doorway to higher consciousness. A Penumbral Eclipse is when the Moon is within the shadow of the Earth.
This Eclipse gave us the opportunity to release deeply rooted resistance and energetic blocks we’ve carried in our shadow self. This release supported us to experience a quantum leap in our personal and collective journey to higher consciousness.

In the twilight hours of November 3rd our planet will be reborn beneath the power of a total solar eclipse. It will occur in the House of Scorpio, the House where life is redeemed. The ancient legend of the Phoenix will soon come to life as we become awestruck with the prolific events which will soon bring endings and new beginnings to every soul and future.
During the November Scorpio Solar Eclipse, the portal for the Phoenix will open as the Moon blots the Sun for a brief moment in space-time. I welcome you all to my analysis of this great cosmic event, the November Scorpio Solar Eclipse, and the profound effects it will have on our lives.
Rebirth and Redemption
The themes of rebirth and redemption will soon manifest with Divine force. The purpose of the coming events is to bring new life precisely where it is needed most. Many prayers will soon be answered as they are made manifest before our eyes. Transformations of every form and order will resuscitate and reclaim once dark territory into the Light. The hidden poisons in our lives will be brought forth with an irresistible force that will press mighty ultimatums before us on every level. As lives are reshaped blessings will come to heal wounds, settle debts, and invigorate the most extreme portions of our lives. The tides have turned on the Earth and the waves of Light will blight the night.
For new life to emerge odious things will first need to be destroyed. Expect to see the widespread destruction of evil lives and systems beginning this Sunday and for this trend to intensify into the future. The time for evil has passed on the Earth and what remains is only a pathetic attempt to thwart the inevitable redemption of mankind. Powers exist above and below which are and will continue to decimate demonic attempts to subjugate humanity. Be prepared for spectacles in the highest offices and circles of worldly power. Historic defeats for Babylon and her agents will become as common as the full moon. Their death is our life. Continue reading
What’s an Energy Gateway?
An energy gateway is a powerful window of time when you can perceive more about yourself and your world. During such moments, you can connect more tangibly with spirit and benevolent unseen forces – receiving helpful insights about your life direction and needed course corrections.
During a gateway, you have expanded levels of help in moving through your obstacles, clearing old patterns, and seeing yourself more clearly. Leading up to a gateway, it’s typical to experience increased ascension symptoms and a choppy roller coaster ride. You can easily lose your sense of balance and clear thinking unless you are mindful and have energy management tools.
What’s Unique about This Gateway?
The Nov. 1-3 energy gateway is unique from a number of perspectives.
First, on Nov. 3 we will have a powerful Scorpio solar eclipse, potentially the most transformational one like this since 1994.
Annular Ring of Fire Eclipse aligned with the Pleiades May 20, 2012
(These times) require staying centered in the whirl and swirl of very nasty collective astral currents, so let us make sure not to overly personalize our dramas as such personalization invites expansion! We do not deny or suppress personal pain, we work to transform it and grow wise and more generous in the process. This is accomplished through the recognition that there is a Higher Magnetism of Love that is tangible and palpable; and as we draw up into It, It draws down into us. … Any ‘cure’ requires impersonal love and for even better results (the results being that we remain conscious in a relatively unconscious world), we engage in service work of any kind. – Alan Oken ECLIPSE NOVEMBER 3, 2013
. . . As I’m sure you’re aware, we are in an energetic pressure cooker right now. I.e. not only is the normally intense Scorpio season in full swing – with Mercury Retrograde in that sign – but we have a powerful ‘hit’ of the Uranus-Pluto Square signature coming up tomorrow (Friday November 1, 2013 at 7:13am EDT) and a very unusual and amazing Hybrid Solar Eclipse in Scorpio on Sunday November 3 at 7:50am EDT.
So, this week is jam-packed with many opportunities for breakthroughs in personal evolution, and accelerated leaps forward in spiritual growth. The tension is tough on the nervous system and physical body, however, so it’s a good idea to just take it easy and sort of ‘fly low under the radar’ as much as possible. Self-nurturing is the name of the game. Don’t pick a fight; and cross the street if someone tries to pick a fight with you! The intensity will subside once the Moon leaves Scorpio on Monday November 4 at 3:14 pm EDT; so allow some time, if you can, on Monday – the day after the eclipse – to decompress. The eclipse portal will close with the Full Moon on November 17th.
