New Moon – May 20, 2012 – 4:47 pm Pacific Daylight Time – A Solar Annular Eclipse

Sunday, May 20th, 2012

 

 
We come into a beautiful Solar Eclipse on New Moon and it is also called a Ring of Fire as the moon centralizes itself between the Sun and Earth. On the West Coast, we will more likely be able to see this (but of course, don’t look directly at it…remember?) The moon will be at apogee (meaning farthest from earth) and thus does not appear to cover the whole Sun..leaving the Ring of Fire. This sight will stir inspirational feelings and create a wonderful sacred attunement for those who choose to align in such a fashion.
 
 
At New Moon, the Sun and Moon are hip-to-hip (or heart-to-heart) in Gemini. This will create a desire to communicate from your inner plane (the Moon) to your Higher Self (the Sun) and activate this wisdom into Matter (Sun/Moon opposite Earth). With the Earth and, Moon and Sun all squaring Neptune, a T-Square is formed, calling for the tension necessary to assist the purification noted below with Mars and Chiron. Let your intuition communicate from your higher plane of existence, channel that information through your personal mind and heart and allow the more positive expressions to come through that will direct your ability to use the gifts of ideas that support you and all of humanity in the plane of healing and creative endeavors.
 
 
The Grand Cross has left us by New Moon, but an opposition remains with tension ongoing between Mars in Virgo and Chiron in Neptune. They are in the tightest moments on the 17th and 18th’ but still affecting the ranges of consciousness within us at New Moon. The gift of this challenge is allowing a final purification and healing (Mars and Virgo) of the old wounds and secrets of the past (Chiron and Pisces). Shall you choose to take charge of your inner plane of unconscious challenges, you can move into healthy actions that provide you with the ways and means to shape-shift and take charge of the sacred compartments of your life, allowing them to flow through with Ancient Wisdom in a Modern Day reality! You can learn and live with the truth that you are the only person in charge of your reactions to your emotional self, healthy or unhealthy states of consciousness. This tension will reveal your willingness to make the changes that activate your power to lead your emotional and mental states into higher intentions that you desire to manifest.
 
 
Fortunately, at the New Moon, Mercury is in the well-grounded sign of Taurus and can continue to help you maintain a good mental focus and clarity. This can provide you with an ability to effectively use your power of resourcefulness to activate the voice of your soul and use the inner wisdom to consciously choose to Master your life and the processes of your life experiences (Taurus = Universal Law of Life Mastery; Mercury = Universal Law of Expression).
 
 
Jupiter continues its crossing through Taurus calling on humanity to seek to know the higher truth of Spirit in Matter and live the Opulence of Divine Presence. Jupiter is feeling little “digs” from Pluto in Capricorn, reminding Jupiter to make sure transmutations are occurring at the personal and global level in order to allow the more dynamic level of the soul(s) to emerge into action for higher achievements in life.
 
 
Uranus continues to be in a challenge with Pluto…seeking the Freedom to take off onto life goals, but, again, Pluto is asking, “Have you really made changes that allow you to live at the Transpersonal levels of consciousness or are you going to head out with an attitude that you are the only important factor and forget you are part of All and able to hear that from the depths of your soul?”
 
 
This year, we are most certainly being asked if we are getting a positive handle on the changes? Are we really taking in the truth of our Sacred state of Empowerment? Are will still hanging on to the victim stages of living (everyone else does the bad things…but we don’t; and they do the bad things to us….leaving us out of the mix of being responsible for our reality)? We are cultivators of a new reality….very important that we don’t hold on to the old realities of not being an empowered, loving and inclusive being. We are cultivating the new garden of life with many creative powers being released from the dynamic level of our Source Consciousness and Neptune in Pisces has been leading the way for a short-while now.
 
 
Venus is going to be completing a Transit started in 2008 and finishing in 2012 that only occurs every 200 years. Venus (though very small in our sight) crosses between the Earth and the Sun and we see a tiny dot eclipsing some of the Sun’s light. Those in the Northern Hemisphere can see it on June 5th. (Again, don’t look directly at the Sun). The transit will occur more at sunset for the Northern Hemisphere and then on June 6th the transit will occur at sunrise for the Southern Hemisphere.
 
 
Transits like Venus effect our DNA….what a gift. Like the Pearlized Soft Green rays of light, Venus will perpetuate the shape-shifting of our DNA. Venus will be in retrograde motion, thus calling us within to gain the wisdom of this changing time…..But there is more…..
 
 
We can see the transit of Venus in Gemini providing even more technologically creative processes advancing (what more will we see beyond iPads, smart phones, etc.?) our world of communication. In the retrograde, this may call for more techy people trying to “reverse engineer” the products that keep us in the field of bitsstreams looking for the binary formulas for new products.
 
Also, on a more personable vein with the Transit of Venus, look for writers to bring more of a gentle nudging toward nurturing and natural awareness to keep the body and mind in harmony. Look for ways and means to communicate about relating with others on a more heart-to-heart level rather than simple mind games. And, most certainly, this Venus power brings about more wisdom of the Feminine Side of the Divine..the Goddess…WomanSpirit. The Call to stay Awake in the Stream of the Feminine Consciousness will occur. It calls for women and men alike to honor the powers of nurturing, caring, loving, creating and streaming with the gifts of harmony so the new world can carry the Light Stream of Peace.
 
 
I’ll speak more of this alignment as we get closer to June 5th. However, the energy is already building and the Divine Design is already taking shape…

Is the Whole World Asleep?

IS THE WHOLE WORLD ASLEEP?

AWAKEN ~ AWAKEN ~ AWAKEN

by

Rev. Katherine Torres, Ph.D., D.D.

 

Is the whole world asleep? I pray not. For Goddess is granting Goodness, Grace, and Opulence. Is anyone thinking of Her; feeling Her? She is so Good and so Compassionate. She awaits our awareness so She can give more to our hearts, more to our minds, more to our souls.

Is the whole world asleep? I Pray not. For Goddess is granting new awareness. If we are awake, we can receive it. She is Filled with Love, Filled with Nurturing and always giving it to Her off-spring. But asleep her children cannot receive, cannot hear Her or feel Her gifts. If they cannot feel, they do not receive, for according to their Free Will and Free Choice, there state of sleeping renders the choice of ignoring, turning away the Precious Gifts of Goddess.

Is the Whole World Asleep? I pray not. Awakened the children of the Earth sing praises to Her, The Great Birther. Awakened we Bless Her with our Love, compassion and good actions as conduits of Divine Energy. Awakened, we bless the Oceans of the World, the Creatures who abide on Earth, and all Brothers and Sisters of Humanity. Awakened, we bless the Greater Galaxy and honor the Oneness.

I invite the whole world to be Awake. Open to Receive the Goodness, Grace and Opulence of the Goddess. I invite the whole world to be Awake and feel Her Compassion Her abundant gifts that fill every nook and cranny of our existence and our needs.

I invite the whole world to be awake and know the Sacred Union of each other, for in this union, the Blessings of the One, the blessings of the Goddess is recognized and abundance flows like a great river in the hearts, the minds and the soul of every living creature.

I invite the whole world to be a awake and LOVE the Divine Source.

I invite the whole world to be awake and LOVE.

AWEN

Full Moon – May 5, 2012

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

In the Month of May—-Mother’s Month, the full moon (the time of contractions and birthing) will occur at 8:35:04 pm PDT on May 5th.

The Moon and Earth are directly opposite the Sun and taking up the Light of Taurus (Willow) as the Sun’s Rays warm us. It is a power time when we align with the Full Moon. It is a time when we birth into our awareness the voice of our soul and the passion to live our soul purpose. Can you hear it? Are you ready to birth the message of your soul and cultivate its growth? Be the midwife, listen well, bring it forward and let it Cry Out, “I AM Present in the here and now!”

The cosmic power of the Grand Square (Grand Cross) that we have been following since before the new moon, still has a bit of a grip on us. It is losing its grip as Mars separates from the connections with the North and South Moon Node……however, it is going to catch up to a full opposition with Chiron by May 17/18, still connected to the North and South Moon Node…a weaker Grand Square, but still forming that view of Sacred Geometry.

The power of this Grand Square has been nudging, agitating and most certainly calling everyone to realize the gift of change, the wisdom of the cosmic power of change, and the movement beyond the old and outdated unconscious messages of how you are wrong or wronged; how you are good or bad; how you have performed to your potential or not, where you are worthy or not. It is time to Center in the Sacred Wisdom of knowing you are right where you are supposed to be and right in the greatest and most sacred power of enabling your True Self to emerge with the knowing of lessons you have learned, wisdom you have gained, and self awareness that allows you to make choices that confirm your reality is important.

When the full on opposition of Mars and Chiron occurs, you can discover the purity of yourself and the legacy of being your Own Shaman, your Own Shape-shifter and live with confidence and the courage to create your life from your soul urges. Or…..you can make the choice to crash into the wounds, dip into the darkness of incapabilities you believe you have, and continue to cultivate your life from the negative beliefs. What you believe you create in the manifest reality of your existence. Check out your beliefs…your constant thoughts, your emotional reactions…what are they creating?

However, take the spiritual path and allow the Moon in Scorpio (Reed) help you dip into and beyond the shadow and right to the Light of your Soul/Higher Self. You will discover what you can cultivate in the Light of the Sun (Higher Power) in Taurus (Willow) and release the power of your higher intent to foster the growth in new ways, and with new mental and emotional tools. With Jupiter beside the Sun, expand your abilities, use your soul resources, and create in your garden of life the persistence to search for truth, live the truth, be loyal to your higher nature, and keep your knowing that the Holy Spirit is guiding you over the troubled waters of any emotional upheaval within you or around you.

With the Sun in Taurus, you are working with the Earth, solid ground….the Earth within you, the solid foundation of your Soul Manifesting in your personal world of reality. You can take up the Torch of Light and create your higher desires; or continue to take up the sword of battle and exacerbate the challenges as you use your fears of unworthiness, loss and lack.

Always, we are at choice, for sure. But the more we take on the Glow of our Sacred Light, the more the shields of the Fighting Wills dissipate and do release into peace. The choice will be a constant expression. The more we move into the power of recognition that we are the Life Changers, the Keepers of the Sacred, the Wisdom Builders of the Human Field of Intelligence, the more we can create the dynamics of Earth as a cozy place to live, explore creative powers of mind-heart and matter. We cultivate and live the choose of empowerment. Our only challenge will be how we create the next inspiration into the world of matter (versus thinking we can’t). Live the Power of the Sacred Light and choice takes on a whole new meaning…not just right or wrong, worthy or unworthy. The Powerful light will be the choice of taking up the next opportunity and cultivating it with creative and joyful success.

Are you a crusader of the Sacred Wisdom? Are you a crusader of humanity living in Light, being the Light and exploring the magnificence of Creative Power? Bet you are or you wouldn’t be reading this blog. As such, then crusade by you living what you think you desire to be seen in others. Be the crusader of your inner self and use the Cultivating Light of this Full Moon to birth your intentions as a Mother Birthing a Sacred Child and let your Inner Crusade grow to the Master of your Self. Then, and only then, reflect that light to the world…for only then will you see the world reflect what you desire back to you. Teach from your Master Heart. Feel, from this sacred place the Love for Life, for All and for the Growth of Consciousness that fills our human field with De-Light in being a common community, worldwide, living in the Grace of Oneness.

There is a secret in living this way….it is the fulfillment of abundant desires….ponder this reality.
