This weekend is a time of breaking down boundaries that separate us from others, assisting others, and nurturing our own mental and physical bodies. It’s about taking care.
Saturday’s energy brings us into closer resonance with people who are kindred or like-minded – soul families. What I’ve been calling the “nexusing” (or linking up in space and time with people, all planned prior to incarnation) is accelerating. The attention of Gaia Sophia, now fully awakened and fully engaged with humanity, is the reason for the acceleration.
When you declare yourself aligned and participating in the co-dreaming of humanity and Sophia, life becomes what some would call magical.
Some will struggle with this over the weekend, not wanting to boldly go where no one has gone before because of fear of the unknown. This will cause emotional spirals, especially on Sunday, leaving some unable to cope. You may be called upon to help someone out of a dark emotional state, but you may have to cross over into that place to do so. Wise owls are quite adept at seeing in the dark and helping others find their way to light. We do it for each other all the time. This is no different, but you may not have expected to be helping who you are helping. We are all human and everyone needs help at one time or another. If someone is offering it to you, it comes from a place of great love, so accept it graciously.
The Mahavidyas Tara and Bhuvaneshvari return this weekend as the Earth, Gaia Sophia, reaches the degree of the Taurus New Moon and the Sabian symbol of “a red cross nurse.” Do you remember the Taurus lunar cycle – most of May 2014? We were lucky enough to have two red cross nurses on duty that month. Look back to that time. What was developing for you then? What did you seed or intend for the future?
Tara and Bhuvaneshvari will help us get our physical, mental, and emotional bodies in better shape for the rest of this month’s journey. This week, the Moon will build toward Full and Mars is on approach to Pluto. The look and shape of things is likely to get even more nutty, as one wise owl put it. So we will prepare ourselves for this and build up our energetic reserves.
This whole month, once again, is like a long Full Moon. Full Moons bring things to their heights. Sensations, emotions, and passions run deep. We come fully alive under Full Moons. There is tremendous power for manifestation under Full lunar cycles. Don’t be afraid to go for what you want. The whole month is like a long Full Moon, but this weekend we are in the last days of the First Quarter phase of it. First Quarter is when we step out. We go out on branches doing dances. Leave your emotional comfort zone. Break a boundary of fear that has held you back. Embrace the opportunities for growth.
With strong sensations, emotions, and passions, aggression and conflict can emerge. Again, this is clarity coming from the fullest amount of light. Maintain alignment with the light, even if this means that what you see from others means you have to take action. Do not be intimidated or manipulated by someone trying to overpower you.
The Mahavidyas are sprinkling flowers along the path this weekend, waiting for us to pick them up. This means we have to know what we are looking at when we see it. Do you see external evidence of internal beauty? It takes wise eyes.
Step out, break out, reach out, go out. Take a chance. Do a dance.
(Note: Let’s watch closely who stands out in global “leadership” over the next 10 days. The person who emerges as dominant during this time span will wield power to sway the future.)
