Cosmic Push

It might be Sunday, day of rest for many but the Moon is in Aries and                                               Mercury opposing Uranus at the moment screams inspiration.
Plus Venus and Jupiter are at an exact conjunction in Virgo.
There is great momentum to get s*** done so get out and do it!

Aries New Moon, April 18, 2015

Happy New Moon in Aries!

The problem with being polite and considerate of others opinion is that it can eventually lead you away from your goal. Do not confuse the dreams of others for your own. Even a well-intentioned advice from a friend could be totally wrong for you.

Sometimes you just have to ignore the opinions, the advice, the pros and cons, the incessant wavering and just GO FOR IT.

How can you create the life that you want if you constantly vacillate
between the would, should and could, of other people’s perspectives?

Your life is: your path, your dream, your creation and your vision.

Sometime you just have to let the world be, and do your own thing.

Sometime you just have to say fuck off, and get on with it.

Lots of love to you all

Beyond the frontiers of the Mind

You thought you knew because you read it in a book

image
Painting by Quincey Tahoma

The words fed to the masses and traded for faith

The ideas of the prophet translated as memes

Blinding beliefs sold as merchandise

Making profit on the devotees.

Beyond the frontiers of dogma,

there is an unrestrained freedom

but to get there, you have to forget about

the uncivilised freedom of the old school rock star.

What you thought was the truth

is only the beginning of a lie.

Go back to the body, go back to the rhythm of the heart.

Loose yourself in the purifying fires of not knowing with the mind.

Faith is a big word

Freedom is even bigger

The Word distracts you from the truth

into the exquisite pleasures of description.

While the real you sits quietly knowing,

filled with every single spark that shines forth from the Sun.

The teacher shapes you into an anxious contradiction.

A skilled puppet

Who is in charge?

Is it the Donkey or the Spirit Rider

The Exaltation of the Sun

We are still in the season of Aries:

Fire + Will Power + Trail Blazing!

It is all available to you. Aries is considered the first sign of the Zodiac. It is associated with Spring, Growth, Individuality, the Ego, the planet Mars which means that Aries is more intuitive and instinctual than intellectual.
The Ram also symbolizes the courage and boldness to follow ones creative urges.

On April 8/9 we have Jupiter in Leo going direct. For more on Jupiter going direct read this great article from Ichrak at Atlas Astrology: http://atlasastrology.com/…/jupiter-stations-direct-april-…/

While Jupiter will be moving forward in the fire sign of Leo, the Sun will also be at 19 degrees of Aries, in the exact degree of its exaltation. There are 360 degrees in the Zodiac and each degree holds a unique meaning or message to add layer to our interpretation.
An exaltation means that the planet is comfortable and finds easy expression. The Sun (ruler of Leo) represents vitality, spirit and individuality and therefore when traveling through Aries will be most comfortable finding motivation, courage and determination.

So if you have been holding off to get started on a creative idea you might get the celestial kick needed. There are potent firery energies available.

Here is the Sabian Symbol interpretation of the 19º of Aries from Dane Rhudyar:

”THE “MAGIC CARPET” OF ORIENTAL IMAGERY”

this_is_theThiefofBagdadPoster_original

KEYNOTE: The use of creative imagination.

”A way of life refusing a hectic involvement in social competition and waste-producing overproduction allows for the development of unattached and transcendent understanding. The static floor (carpet) on which man’s feet (symbols of understanding) rest can become transformed into the means for great flights of imagination and super-physical perception. The period of rest from outwardly directed activity bound to collective normality presents the creative mind with the possibility of surveying in dreams the totality of the present-day social situation, thus “to see whole.”

Full Love

On Saturday, there is a Full Moon-Lunar Eclipse in the sign of Libra. Relationships are on the radar but the Libra-Aries axis speaks not only of ”me” versus ”you” or ”us”, it also speaks of the relationship to ourselves. Balancing the scales also means taking the time to enter fully in a relationship to ourselves. To be loving, caring and generous within a relationship, one has to know how to give it to themselves. And from that starting point, shine it outwards. Once you have understood that principle, no one can ever take love away from you. Love originates from the center of your being and not as something outside of yourself. It is the starting point.

I leave you with a poem that Mystic Medusa shared this morning on her Facebook page:

The time will come
when, with elation,
you will greet yourself arriving
at your own door, in your own mirror,
and each will smile at the other’s welcome
and say, sit here. Eat. You will love again the stranger who was your self.
Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart
to itself, to the stranger who has loved you
all your life, whom you have ignored
for another, who knows you by heart.
Take down the love letters from the bookshelf,
the photographs, the desperate notes,
peel your own image from the mirror.
Sit. Feast on your life.

Derek Walcott, “Love After Love”

Libra Luna

The Moon is in Libra applying to conjunct the North Node which represents a point of learning for us collectively. While there is so much going on in the opposite side of Aries at the moment with Venus-Mars-Uranus and the South Node pushing to be acknowledge and the impulse to be recognized as a unique individual, there is also the need to recognize how we can progress by teaming up with others.
Everyone has it’s own gifts but when we come together, ask for help, acknowledge others, considering new points of view we can actually progress faster. Finding the middle ground between your needs and what others need or want from you could come up this weekend.
We can think of Aries as the law of the jungle which is an expression that means ”every man for himself”. A necessary process for survival.
The opposite sign of Libra could be the image of John Lennon and Yoko Ono singing: ”Give peace a chance”.
In the first decan of Libra which is ruled by the Moon, we meet the courtesans, diplomats and artists of the zodiacs. Here Justice emerges, cutting through the subjective or selfish motives. It is the begining of social order and the building of societies through fair ethical judgments and laws.
So this weekend, with the Moon in Libra, we can play with images of US versus OTHERS.
♈When should I follow my own agenda in a (good for me) selfish way?
♎When is it ok to voice my discontent in a collaboration?
♎Where in my life am I giving up on myself to keep the peace?
♈Would I benefit by partnering up with someone or asking for help?
♎What does the word relationship means to me?
