Live the Christed Self Stop, Pause, Increase Christed Awareness – SPICA
At 3:14:08 a.m. on the first day of January we have a New Moon occurrence. We have a very rare experience to have a New Moon on New Year’s Day. Of course, most astrologers and mystical wisdom seekers find this to be auspicious. With the Moon, Sun, Pluto, and Mercury all conjunct each other in Capricorn, a greater power lines up for the world as well as our individual selves. But these 4 have one more partner in the region of Capricorn. Venus, presently in retrograde, is also in this powerful Zodiac sign, though not conjunct with the other 4. So, 5 out of 10 planets (11 if you count the Earth) are in Capricorn. Capricorn is the exuding energy of Achievement, the power to obtain fulfillment of your desires and be at the “head of the class” in your performance. Leadership takes over and in this world in need of changes in leadership, the glory of this alignment may be a prognosticator of what is to come.
I can’t go by without making the statement that Capricorn is the business environment, the field of your career, the head of corporations and governments, and the power that oversees the world. If you are having a bit of difficulty in any of these areas, remember to stop and be your personal authority so you can work most effectively in your worldly environment. Remember, Pluto is bringing up what has not been revealed before. This revelation is often not popular when drudged up through Pluto energy. However, the greater power is the Light that Pluto leads you to: the awareness of what needs to be changed to guide you to the most empowered state of existence.
Before going into even more explanation of the Astrological alignment of the New Moon, let me acknowledge that the Moon will be at her perigee: closest to the Earth and will be the closest of all new moons of 2014. This is another auspicious note for the energy is more strongly felt and utilized by our inner conscious, collective field of consciousness, and our personal intuition.
Because of these beneficial qualities, I urge any of you who follow a mystical intent to be more aligned with Source during the New Moon. Be alert to your thoughts, your feelings and your actions. Be alert to how you are directing energy through these levels of yourself. Remember they are your T.E.A.M. (Thoughts, Emotions, Actions, Manifestation) and need to be congruent on all levels to manifest the most balanced outcome of your desires.
Pluto, the great transmuter, continues to take precedence in the great awakening of our need to change and treat the New World with the power and respect needed to cultivate the way of Peace and Harmony and Higher Conscious Living. It hot, steaming energy will help us continue to melt-down n the fields we need to transform. Pluto is calling all to transform our world from the old structure and create a new, powerful and enduring structure. In fact, as Pluto represents the power of the soil coming to its fallow point so new seeds can be planted, and Pluto (as well as the Moon, Sun and Mercury) are opposite the Earth (in Cancer) on this day of the New Moon, the Soul Soil of the Earth is being strongly activated to release, from its molten level, the power of the Divine intention to reveal the seeds of nurturing from the core of this 5th World into the home/hands of humanity. As Pluto vibrates with the Law of Soul Evolution we can see the Anima Mundi (World Soul) continues to respond to the higher intention of Great Change. Let us not forget that when we see the “worst of things,” we are ready to see the “best of things” that are revealed at the darkest point and the first impression of New Light. This New Moon is New Light and ready to be the revealer of the powerful new structures to come into expression in 2014. What will they be for you and for me?
With the Capricorn energy we can use diligence, determination, discipline and devotion to make sure we get what we say we want. We must utilize our Inner Wisdom (Moon), with our higher intention (Sun), while allowing transmutation to carry on (Pluto), and keep a focus of higher intention (Mercury) that leads us to our mental authority to see what we know is the Divine Intention and Live it to the fullest (Venus).
We have the formation of a Cardinal Grand Cross (and will most certainly see this strongly aligned in May as well). A Cardinal Cross initiates something new. It is also a Cross Road symbol. We are at the Cross Roads of a New World, New Month and New Year. Another auspicious moment of the New Moon. The Capricorn Stellium is arcing light to Mercury in Libra, who arcs light to Jupiter (also retrograde) and Earth in Cancer, and these two arc light to Uranus in Aries and from there back to the Stellium in Capricorn. Will this energy box us in or lead us to the power of being the Authority of our Destination? Will it call us to form harmony in the midst of frustration? Care in the midst of chaos? Humanitarian action in the midst of self-survival? We do have the option to take up the Highest Direction and steer our life towards the Oneness messages we all hear, say we believe and now must take action to live. Or, we can continue to say the responsibility of our human endeavors belong to “others” who can lead us through the land of human laws and regulations while we simply keep pace with our person needs, wants and desires. We can live independently or live as a family of independent thinkers, movers and shakers of the world connected to each other so the individual talents can be the soup of nurturing for everyone.
With Venus and Jupiter in retrograde, we will be using this time to reconsider our resources, understand what risks are viable and what are foolish, and set the pace toward long term successes with the resources we have and the resources we will cultivate. We will also use these two planets to surge ahead in relationships. We will be rediscovering what they mean to us and how they support our ability to remain stalwart in our journey to accomplish what our soul-prompting is, as well as feel the foundation beneath us as secure and benevolent.
Venus is a personal planet while Jupiter is called a social planet. So, personally we will be called to enter into review of our intentions, creative concerns, resources and relationships with Venus. With Jupiter, we will be asked to review our ability to be social with our family (it is in Cancer) and with the world at large. We will be asked to reassess our financial realities with both Jupiter and Venus and take time before spending to contemplate the value of what we are about to do and does it work with the greater whole of our intentions. Retrogrades always carry the energy to stop, pause, review, realign, and readdress where we are going. Great! Use the energy…you most certainly want to be sure you are using energy in the most effective way to achieve what you desire.
We can see the transformational energy continues. It is in Divine Right Timing. Be sure to be listening for what more will come in 2014 as I speak at our SPICA – Way of Light Church and our audio recordings that will be provided at www.spicawayoflight.com on our “Downloads” page.
12 Days of Christmas
In our Christian Tradition, the 12 days of Christmas lead us to Epiphany (from the 25 of December to the 6th of January). It is noted that on the 12th day Christ revealed himself as the Living Light Being.
The moment anyone “saw Christ” they had an Epiphany:
A) a sudden manifestation and awareness of the essential nature or meaning of the Divine
B) an intuitive grasp of reality of Oneness and the Master Consciousness existing in All
As you honor the 12 days of Christmas with an intention to achieve the Epiphany (revelation) of your Master Consciousness–Christed Being, you will use the 4-D’s to act upon your highest Nature. From the Christmas Song of the 12 days of Christmas you can create a focus for your meditations:

Ah, you knew. If we had a Lunar Eclipse at Full Moon we must have a Solar Eclipse at New Moon. Yep, we do. It is called the Solar Hybrid Eclipse and simply means that at some time during the eclipse it will be an annular eclipse and at other moments it will be a total eclipse. It will be seen over the Atlantic Ocean and you might enjoy watching NASA’s animation of its journey:
During a Solar Eclipse, the Moon crosses between the Sun and the Moon and eclipses the light of the Sun to the Earth. The effects of this event can last as long as a year. The Sun and the Moon at New Moon are both sharing the radiance of the Zodiac pattern of Scorpio. Scorpio provides an even greater eclipse, if we let it, the eclipse of our inner self. During this eclipse, it is a time to use our Will Power to dip in, discover, dissect and then direct our intentions to higher wisdom.
The Sun and Moon are at 11 degrees 15 minutes of Scorpio at New Moon. The Sabian message of the degree is “An embassy ball.” As an embassy, it relates to the sovereign territory of foreign lands. As a “ball,” it relates to elegance, beauty and the things revealed by the chosen and privileged leaders of this territory. Because we love to take a peek at the beauty of the ball, it is a time to realize we can “see” what we have concealed and may now have become foreign to us. We may not realize what challenges may be hidden as they may be camouflaged by the facade of elegance. We can be enticed by the “bling” of our unconscious that can lead us to denial and illusion, guiding us away from the territory that keeps us bound in challenges and in preparation for a warring inner and outer conscious states. We use this to ignore the voice of transformation and remain in the territory of struggle displaying itself as anxiety and comparisons. However, we can also use the “bling” to help us enter the territory of the unconscious, take charge of the challenges and awaken ourselves to the inner power. The elegance we can find is the refined gracefulness of our soul…perhaps in foreign territory of our inner being because we have forgotten our conscious power to search for its wisdom.
Entering the time of the New Moon in Scorpio provides us with the entrance into a Celtic “Year and a Day ” gift. Reed – Ngetal, the Celtic name of the lunar cycle, calls everyone to take on the power of searching and researching our inner self for a year and a day. To do so brings about powerful insights and great wisdom. Are you willing to come to the Ball and dance with your soul for a year and a day? Are you willing to learn from your most sacred state of consciousness and open the door of Mystical Wisdom? You have help, not only from this time of the year, but from the Mystical Rectanble formed by the angling of planets to each other. Earth, in her sacred alignment of support of this Solar Eclipse, initiates the arching of lights from one planet to another. She archs to Mars in Virgo and Chiron in Pisces (who vibrate on the axis of healing and service). Both arch to the Sun and Moon and the entire Stellium of planets that are aligned in Scorpio: Venus, Moon, Sun, and Saturn; along with the North Moon Node and align on the Axis of the Soul as they oppose the Earth and the South Moon Node. The wisdom to be revealed is the wisdom of how to Master the Soul Intention to live in the constant vibration of universal change and transformation and understand it, even when it is breaking down old structures of personal and universal states of consciousness.
In other sacred geometrical alignments, we have a Grand Trine and a Kite configuration showing up. The Divine Grace revealed. Mars in Virgo starts the field of the Grand Trine, archs to the Earth in Taurus and to Pluto in Capricorn as they arch energy to each other. The Earth and Pluto arch to Chiron in Pisces and completes the circuit of the head of the Kite. As we open the Mystical Rectangle and release the healing power of Source, we most certainly have the opportunity to Master our states of consciousness that reveal our soul voice, passion and purpose, and free us to live in a world of compassion, peace and a new order of leadership in a territory that may have been foreign to humanity, but is now the New World.
The intensity to step into the power is with us during this lunar cycle. Some aspects of this power may be hidden, some partially hidden. However, we, the Seekers of Truth and one’s who desire to live empowered by the voice of our Higher Privilege can lead the way with courage an intention. Set the intention at the New Moon to gain the wisdom of the cosmos. Cultivate it in your personal life by responding and let the cultivation overflow for all of humanity to use. Call everyone to the Ball to be enticed by the Bling of Light that God/Goddess reveals. Let the Higher Power Within guide you.
Love and Light,
Rev. Katherine Bell
Once again we come into the flow of dynamic energy at our Full Moon. A Lunar Eclipse occurs and the Moon is covered by the shadow of the earth for a while. This is the time when the Earth’s shadow is strong enough to block light from the Sun to the Moon. During an Appulse Eclipse (also called a Penumbral Eclipse), the shadow does not create a blackout of the moon, therefore the moon is still seen, to some degree.
The moon is the vibration that stirs our emotions. It is the internal movement of our being and the energy we use to nurture our selves, harmonize our discontent, and utilize our intuition for sacred guidance. It is our “connection” to the Divine Feminine that encourages, reassures, and calms our human nature. During a lunar eclipse, we experience a temporary loss of this quality. We experience the “I’m on my own,” message and may feel lost from the internal compass that guides us through our life experiences.
During this eclipse, we are in the complete balance of Self and Others as the Moon resides in Aries and the Sun Resides in Libra. We can experience the “I’m on my own” or the dependent need of another to give us guidance while we feel emotionally and intuitively lost. We can also experience the greater guidance of the Infinite Partnership of Aries (Alder) and Libra (Ivy) as we continue to explore Contemplation and Rebuilding, Harmony and Action, and Relating and Self Alignment, as noted in the letter of the new moon, lunar cycle. http://facesofwomanspirit.brownrice.com/pdf/Ivy%20-%202013website.pdf
The cosmic influence of the Full Moon – Lunar Eclipse provides us further insight of energy we are able to use, even if we have to dip in a bit deeper within ourselves to discover it as the eclipse takes over. When utilizing the vibration of an eclipse, it is good to remember it is an opportunity for inner changes, particularly the challenges of our personal subconscious. When releasing the challenges of our personal subconscious, we can open to the Higher Levels of our Supernal Consciousness. In fact the Sabian Message of the Moon is, “A Man possessed of more gifts than he can hold.” Using this state of wisdom, we can realize that the eclipse can help us feel the need for change and further our ability to dip into the Higher Heart-Mind consciousness and release the gifts that the Divine has stored within us. The Solar Message of the Sabian wisdom reveals, “An Eagle and a Large White Dove turning one into the Other.” When we dip into the inner levels, we will see the Solar Light of Source. Our Eagle state that is soaring to the highest levels of Spirit will form a Union with the Holy Spirit (Dove) and increase our Living in the awareness of Oneness.
Mercury is helping us dip into the deeper levels of the psyche as it crosses the patterns of Scorpio and prepares to move into its retrograde travels on October 21st. It is already moving slower and in its shadow. It is calling out: “Warning, Warning, Warning. Time to go inward and review the stages of change you are now being called to take on.” As a messenger, Mercury is calling on you to listen from within the depths of your being and use your Intelligence (right use of logic and intuition) to direct the change. As Mercury goes through its three weeks of retrograde, you will hear more calls to change. Will you listen. If you do, you will take charge of the change. If you don’t, the change will appear to take charge of you and you will move through its transitions of: No longer a warning, but your awareness of the need and your rejection to change because it is a bit scary to face the problem. You hope it will just go away. Ignoring it will only bring on the next stage of prompting the change: Help I have a Major Problem, Now What? You will feel like you have to change or die. You may possess the power of anger, the deluge of illness, the uncontrollable reality of others, losses you didn’t expect. If you still refuse to take charge of the change, you will go into crisis and everything will fall apart. Your excuses and “waiting for” something or someone else to take charge will not work. You will change and you will know that you created order out of chaos. Leap into Faith In fact, take the Quantum Leap by realizing you are the Perfect Being to take charge of your reality because you are the Divine Living in Matter and can Live in a state of a Master Consciousness.
At Full Moon there is the Sacred Symbol of the Star of David as one grand trine forms from the Moon and Earth at 25 degrees Aries, arching light to Mars at 2 degrees Virgo, and all joining in a beam of light to the Mid-Heaven revealing Sagittarius. The other grand trine that mixes with the first and creating the design of the Start of David (Heaven and Earth in Oneness) is instigated by Mercury in Scorpio arching light to Jupiter in Cancer and both sending rays of light to the Ascendent revealing Pisces. This energy Full of Grace, calls on our inner guidance to release the Strength from within to move forward in the intention to purify, heal and harvest our whole being awareness and reveal to the world the Light of the Divine in Living Matter. We will receive the guidance to expand our foundation so our potentials can be activated sacredly through our personalities.
The Sun, Moon/Earth and Jupiter form a T-Square…a challenging energy. The challenge is to call us to move beyond old authority memories, discontinue the belief that we are alone in what we are doing, and join in the power of being the authority of our reactions and live the power of our resurgence of harmony with all. These frequencies call us to regenerate relationships as true partnerships of Oneness. The power to regenerate our understanding of interdependency and the knowing that together we form one holy and wholesome community of humanity that are the performers of the work of the Divine Creation.
As is always noted, an eclipse provides us with energy to be utilized for at least a month and up to six months. Shall we create a new creed of relationships? If so, what shall it be? Shall we vow to believe in the power of our relationship to the Holy Spirit as a Union of Love? Shall we vow to believe that the power of relating to others is the sacred attitude of love, care and nurturing of each other? Shall we set a standard of Living Out Loud the Power of Caring, the Encouragement of Nurturing, and the Harmony of Equality? Let’s Live Life Out Loud–the Life of Love for All. What a beautiful relationship we will experience world-wide.
Blessings during this Eclipse and Mercury Retrograde…May they serve you well.
