Ceres and the EU Referendum

Guest article by Alison Dhuanna

The 4th July is the first New Moon in which Britain has begun energetically to be independent from Europe as the shock of the outcome for many people starts to subside and the politicians who stirred up all the racial tension and hatred have both thankfully resigned. Whilst times ahead hold much uncertainty globally and chaos will almost certainly prevail for some time the Goddess Asteroids are offering an insight into the deeper processes at work. How wonderful that we share this New Moon Independence Day with our American friends who must have felt similar feelings of both exhilaration and fear when they broke free from British rule so many hundreds of years ago.

My first reaction to the outcome of the referendum was shock and grief as hate crimes against Europeans and other settlers in Britain, many who have now been here generations increased by 57%. Emboldened by the outcome many people with racist views felt they could openly now approach people and tell them to go home. I even had a friend from Northern Ireland which is part of the UK get asked this. The country became extremely polarised with families and communities being torn apart by the vitriolic reaction.

The astrology has helped me personally to find inner balance again and see a bigger picture of what is unfolding. Last week Pallas Athena was speaking about Sovereignty and this week as I was writing my new book about Ceres all sorts of connections started to happen.

Ceres was discovered on the 1 January 1801, the first Goddess Asteroid to be discovered. Kepler had predicted her existence and a group of European astronomer’s nick named the ‘Celestial Police’ set out over many years to find her. Despite their resources and being the patriarchal power of astronomy at the time though they did not. Piazzo a mathematician, monk and astronomer in Sicily discovered her and named her after the Patron Saint of his City. A astrologer friend told me last week that Britain was formed politically the same year as Ceres was found and on researching it is true. The Legislative Union of Britain and Ireland took place in 1801 and the first Parliament met on the 2 February 1801. The dates are uncanny – 1/1/1801 and 2/2/1801 and are the first two numbers of the fibonacci sequence when combined 3 and 5. It has been said that the British Isles is a mirror of Ceres on Earth because it is the same size and also because of all the Neolithic sites we have here so I was tremendously excited by this. I have been working shamanically with the power animals of Britain for many years (Cernunnos, Epona, Mona and Artor) and as a spiritual body The British Isles includes Wales, Scotland, Ireland, England with the Isle of Man at the Centre which is independent. It’s a beautiful place where the Atlantean god Mannana is still honoured openly by the people. Also a resident of the Isle of Man told me recently there is a ley line connecting all four parts of Britain and the three legs of Mannanan on their flag are a moving, spiralling ley line. It was fortuitous to meet her as she is one of a few people who knows where it is and she said the true location is hidden to protect the energy. Ceres also feels very important personally because in my relocated chart from Johannesburg where I was born to Hebden Bridge in the UK as she now falls exactly on my mid heaven and in the same place she was discovered at 3 degrees Taurus.

In this same year according to Wikipedia two other important things happened in Britain. A very interesting scientist Thomas Young discovered that light travels in waves and not just particles as put forward by Newton. At age 14 years Young could speak Latin and Greek and was acquainted with 11 other languages. He also decoded many of the Egyptian Hieroglyphs so I’m feeling he was ‘one of us’. This is relevant to Ceres and all planets because their frequencies are carried in light waves to us. The asteroid belt termed the ‘Rainbow Bridge’ by Barbara Hand Clow holds the energetic keys to becoming collective beings in the Aquarian Age – like bees. This is achieved on an emotional and practical level through the reintegration of the Divine Feminine archetypes and the Wounded Healer archetype Chiron the Centaur and the other Centaur bodies. Rainbow light waves are the carrier of these frequencies.

The second thing that happened was that Maria Edgworth, an Irish woman published ‘Belinda’ a very controversial book for its time. Maria was a feminist and this was her first novel about the struggles love brings in life and includes a relationship between an African servant and an English farm girl. The Goddess does like to smash into the boundaries of convention which is why I love her! Freeing ourselves from religious and cultural belief systems is also an important part of the Goddess energies.

At this first New Moon of Independence Ceres is conjunct Uranus in Aries so this is a powerful combination for breaking free from the status quo in her form as Britain. Ceres/Uranus are part of a Nine Pointed star which includes as we orbit round the zodiac Vesta the Priestess in Gemini/MC, Venus in Cancer conjunct New Moon aligned to Sirius, Hygeia in Virgo conjunct Astraea/Jupiter/North Node, Juno in Libra, Mars in Scorpio finally going direct, Saturn in Sag, Pluto in Capricorn and Chiron conjunct Pallas Athena/Neptune/South Node.

Something else very special also happened at this new moon in that the spaceship Juno which set off five years ago reached the orbit of Jupiter. Through Juno’s visit we will discover much more about Jupiter and receive a higher frequency now of its energies which is very apt as it is conjunct the North Node (karmic destiny). The presence of Hygeia and Astraea in this conjunction very much speak of the importance of sound, light, beauty, dance and creativity to integrate these new frequencies. In this 4th Golden Age of light we begin to create works of great beauty in every sphere reflecting the beauty of the Earth, the sky and all her creatures. On iTunes there is a film about the Juno mission you can watch for free for about 5 minutes that connects it to music so it’s good to see Astraea is doing her work on the world stage. Special music has been made by various famous artists to commemorate the occasion. As Juno is Goddess of the Sacred Marriage and Jupiter her consort it feels too that this represents a new portal of possibilities opening for the relationship of Sacred Feminine and Sacred Masculine.

The next retreat is coming up is 17-21st October Dreamspell Mayan Mandala Retreat at the eco nature park Glan Morfa, Anglesey, Wales. We begin on a Galactic Portal Day creating sacred space through meditation and gong baths to tune into the cosmic frequency of our own Dreamspell and to create a mandala reflecting these. I discovered on my last visit to Anglesey that this area Aberffraw was also the ancient seat of the Royal Celtic family so it seems all the more significant. Cost is £360 for single supplement accommodation and home cooked vegetarian food. There are just 5 spaces left so book soon by contacting Margaret Mary on 01373464929 or email myself. www.msmandalas.com for more information

Astrology Report for July

By Dorene Carrel

July begins with an energized momentum after Mars turned direct in late June.  We can now move forward to accomplish important goals. Mars is still in Scorpio until August 2 when it goes into Sagittarius, providing us more time to re-balance emotions and strengthen intuitive insights. The Saturn-Neptune square is still in effect for most of this month, helping us get further in touch with our ideals and visions. We will tend to feel busier and that time is really speeding up. Later in the month, Uranus turns stationary retrograde, which can bring sudden changes during late July/early August.

On June 20 a full moon/summer solstice occurred at the 0 Aries World Point degree, which brought unexpected historic events, such as Brexit in England, that will have far-reaching consequences.  The Venus emphasis for both lunations resulted in the focus on financial reform.  It also indicates there is a need to search for fair and creative solutions that will restore harmony and equality for everyone.

The New Moon occurs on July 4 at 13 Cancer.  It aligns with both Mercury and Venus in Cancer, while opposing Pluto in Capricorn.  The Cancer emphasis shows much concentrated energy on home and family activities, along with food and security issues. Power and control issues can also arise around these areas.  With six planets in water signs, it is favorable to slow down, get more in touch with your feelings and do some journaling.  Favorable aspects to the lunar nodes, along with Neptune and Jupiter, indicate progress can be made in the areas of relationships and our spiritual path. The Sabian symbols for this degree, “A hand with a prominent thumb is held out for study; the power of the will in shaping character,” suggests we can now connect with our true soul intentions and stand firm in our resolutions.

A series of water grand trine patterns with Chiron and Mars will be forming during this month with several personal planets. On July 6, Venus in Cancer forms a grand trine with Mars in Scorpio and Chiron in Pisces. The Venus/Mars trine can bring significant new meetings for romance or ideas for creative pursuits.  The other planets involved with Mars/Chiron include Mercury on July 10 and the Sun on July 16. Chiron brings us opportunities for healing a wound from our past involving relationships, resources, communication and/or growth potential.  It also has maverick side, which can be used to flaunt our unique differences. It will be interesting to see how the major US Republican and Democratic conventions held during July use this Chiron energy.  There will be an opportunity for each political party to heal their internal differences and create more unity.  However, the upcoming Uranus station will bring out the maverick side, so the more unconventional and radical points of view will demand to be heard and acknowledged.    I plan to write about my observations on the candidates in an upcoming blog (see below).

On July 19 the Full Moon occurs at 28 Capricorn.  The Sun and Moon form a t-square with Uranus in Aries and favorably aspect both Mars and Chiron.  Capricorn brings a more structured energy to our feeling expression and puts more focus on security issues.  What needs to be restructured and reorganized in our lives so we can experience more ease?  Uranus encourages us to break free from any undue restrictions, while Mars and Chiron provide courage and healing.  The Sabian symbol keynotes for these degrees, “Inner rebirth through a total acceptance of the primordial values manifest in the human body and its natural functions,” and “The enjoyment of spiritual values by the soul able to familiarize itself with their implications,” suggest we can benefit by having more contact with nature and seeing the harmonious integration of matter and spirit.

Uranus turns stationary retrograde on July 29 at 24 Aries 30.  Although Uranus is stationary most of this month, the week before this date may contain more changes, instability and revolutions.  There may also be earth changes, so it is best to be prepared.  On inner levels, we may feel a need to rebel from any limitations or become more independent and detached.  Venus in Leo trines Uranus on July 31, which can bring an energizing and exciting new connection that will open doors for us on many levels.

In August Saturn turns direct, Mercury turns retrograde and we have another Lunar Eclipse!  Blessings to all and stay tuned.

The Astrology of the EU Referendum

Guest article by Alison Dhuanna

As a tsunami wave of emotion has hit the UK over the Out vote in the EU referendum there is a tremendous amount of energy being released that has the potential to be channeled into new democratic structures. In my last blog for this New Moon cycle I wrote about the rise of Pallas Athena who embodies the deep desire for ‘sovereignty’ and oh boy has Britannia risen up against the interference of the Brussels bureaucrats in a way that has left the country reeling. On the day of the EU referendum Pallas Athena was conjunct the south node (the past), Neptune and Chiron. This is very interesting as many older people voted ‘Out’ and what was being expressed was a desire for Britain to return to its sovereign status, return to the way they remembered it. A lot of suppressed anger over many years at being politically disenfranchised was also expressed which explains to why many Labor areas also voted ‘Out’.

Whilst there is a racist element in the population it feels important to acknowledge that this deep desire for ‘sovereignty’ on both a personal and collective level is a positive thing and something which can be harnessed for the good of all. There is an old story about King Arthur being given one year to find out ‘what women want’ otherwise he would lose his life. The answer in the end comes from a hag he meets in the deep forest representing the Dark Goddess and in psychological terms the repressed subconscious. This old woman is one and the same with the ‘sovereignty’ of the land. The answer is simple but powerful – what women and the land want is ‘to be able to decide for themselves’. The Pallas Athena stellium was also in a challenging square to Saturn in Sagittarius and Vesta and Mercury in Gemini and also opposing Jupiter. When Saturn, Neptune and Jupiter meet in a square/opposition the energy is very difficult because Saturn is restricting vision and aspiration in Sag and asking for a reality check, Neptune is dissolving into oceanic consciousness and Jupiter is wanting limitless expansion. Vesta (Priestess) and Mercury in Gemini the sign of communication is interesting too as I think this represents a great challenge for those of us on a spiritual path whose instincts are towards unity with Europe. Ultimately we are the new leaders, or at least the forerunners of the new leaders to step into our power, refuse to polarise and keep our hearts open and use the many skills we have learnt over life times to stabilize the planet energetically in these times of great transformation.

This week whilst processing very deep emotions myself about the referendum I uncovered a lost piece of history about a Welsh Warrior Princess called Gwenllian. There is a link to that blog at the bottom of the page but actually it got me thinking a lot about the issue of ‘sovereignty’. Wales historically has had very difficult time being ‘sovereign’. Once a peaceful and highly advanced civilization they were invaded first by the Romans and then the Normans in a brutal fashion. Those in power seem to have an uncanny knack of getting people to turn against each other – divide and rule and Gwenllian’s story is a sad one with the betrayal of her Father to his country and family getting lured by sex, power and alcohol by the Norman King Henry I. It’s a true story where the evidence that ‘desire’ is the undoing of many a good person and leads to very real tragedy. It feels very much that what the higher intelligence of the happenings of the past week are that we need to recognize our need as individuals, communities and nations for sovereignty but lets not give the power we have away to politicians or let the most fearful section of society who openly express racism take the lead here. Whilst sovereignty is important, beneath this and for it not to become fuel for war, we also need to recognize that nothing is ‘ours’. The Earth supports us, supports all life and all human beings of every creed and color, gender and sexuality and are equally loved children in her eyes and in the eyes of Great Spirit.

The Uranus Pluto square has heralded the breakdown of the structures of the old order and the decision of Britain to leave the EU will certainly accelerate this process greatly. Now more than ever we must ceremony, use all the healing techniques we have in our collective Medicine Bag to bring soothing, loving energies to the fractured heart of Britain and Europe and hold the vision of a future where people can be both sovereign and yet inter connected on a much deeper level. We are in that strange void right now of endings and beginnings which is the most powerful time to do energetic work and influence the outcome.

Last night as I went to sleep listening to my Buddhist music mantras I sent the positive energy of the words out into world and had the thought……what if thousands more were doing the very same thing. We have the power to create the future together.

Many of us are now living in the Fifth Dimension where the idea we have to fight over limited resources seems a million miles away but we need to recognize that for many people the fear survival buttons are still easily pressed. This is essentially why the fear of refugees really connects with people because culturally we have been brainwashed to believe we have to fight over the crumbs of the pie. The question is how do we bring people across the rainbow bridge with us? Many of us have incarnated lifetimes to prepare karmically for this one where the potential for transformation of human consciousness is greatest. Now is the time to enter the matrix.

Gwenllian The Welsh Warrior Princess

Planet Alert July 2016

Today is June 24 and England just left the European Common Market. This is a really big deal and I don’t think there are too many people who realize the extent of this event. The Stock Markets around the world lost a total of trillions of dollars in one day. Money talks and the loss of it has a tendency to upset people very much. This makes people start thinking about money and who controls all of this money?

The Vatican Bank is at the top of the pyramid. It had total control of the banking world for a long time. This Bank was very corrupt in the past. The next in power has been the Bank of England and our Federal Reserve Bank is tied to this bank. The 1957 Treaty of Rome established the European Economic Community. Brussels put in an application to be the meeting place for the officials of this union. Chateau of Val-Duchesse became the temporary meeting place in Brussels. Now it is in Central Brussels. The top people from the European Union meet there. I just heard that Brussels is making an agreement with China. There will be a meeting in Beijing in the first half of July. It looks like we will be hearing more about the BRICS Union (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) in the near future. BRICS is a new financial system and their World Bank is in Beijing.

Now the head of The International Monetary Fund, Christine Lagarde, is in court charged with embezzlement. This started in May of 2016 and the trial is ongoing. Her conviction could leave the monetary system in turmoil and plunge the banks into chaos. The IMF is an organization of 189 countries and their job has been to foster global monetary cooperation, secure financial stability, facilitate international trade, sustain economic growth, and reduce poverty around the world. Now we have corruption at the top of this organization. Christine Lagarde is from France. How will this affect the world? Europe is already in chaos.

Mona Delfino , a friend of mine who channels Izora, said on April 22, 2016 that the European Common Market would collapse because of all the refugees that are moving into Europe and overstressing their systems. She said the unrest will continue to escalate until it reaches a breaking point, which just happened in England. Now the after effects of this event are causing Britons to ask for a second referendum to repeal the vote to exit the European Union because of the trauma it has caused in the money system of England and financial systems all over the world. We will see what happens next.

The Dreamspell Glyph on the day of the full moon/solstice was abundance. Maybe this event will usher in a new financial system that will be honest and a benefit to the whole world. Incidentally, the Summer Solstice always focuses into Stonehenge in England and activates the energy there. This energy comes from the great central sun that is on 29 degrees Virgo and it holds 27 galaxies in place, plus our Milky Way System. The energy from that Sun goes to our Galactic Center, then to Alcyone, and then to Earth. This is very powerful energy and being it was also the full moon on that day, events were set into motion.

On June 18/19 our magnetic field moved 3-5 degrees. Magnetic north used to line-up with the North Star. After this past weekend it no longer lines up with that star. Our magnetic field was oscillating from 3-5 degrees all weekend, or longer. This oscillation appears to be causing a lot of trauma, look at what is going on in Europe. Do you feel this energy personally by being dizzy, nauseated, blurry eyes, or other body aches and pains? I always feel the energy when something is going on with our magnetic field.

I think we probably would have had a magnetic reversal within the past couple of months if the ring node of Planet 9 had not grabbed onto our magnetic core to hold it steady. It’s my understanding that Planet 9 is part of what they call the Nibiru or Nemesis Planetary system. It’s also my understanding that this system is the companion of our solar system and the main planet is called Nemesis, which is our second sun.

Astronomers told us in the past that we have a second sun that comes our way every few thousand years and it is called Nemesis. I read an article a few years ago that the Astronomers were working on figuring out when it would be here, and they came up with the year 2012. Then another article came out and said they had recalculated and it would be here by 2020. Well guess what? It is here now, and visible in our heavens at sunrise. Nostradamus told us a long time ago that at the end of the old system we would have two suns.

We are living in a very exciting time period. I consider it a privilege to be living on Earth at this time of change, except that I did not realize when I signed up for this job how long it would take us to reach the goal of living on a new Earth. Some of us have been working on clearing our subconscious mind from fear for years so we can become clear channels of light. It is such a joy to see the progress we have made. Love has won! It may not appear like love has won but it has and we are now on 5D Earth.

The Earth jumped into the 5D timeline on the equinox of March 19, 2016. Many of us were already manifesting 5D and 6D energy although now the whole Earth will be able to do that. It may take a while to integrate this energy because we need to finish going through the process of integration. On May 21st when the sun lined up with Alcyone we activated 7D energy. This is the energy of sound, and now sound healing will work very well.

The Lions Gate opens every year. Maybe this year we will activate 8D energy on August 8, 2016 with the opening of the Lions Gate because we are now living on a higher frequency Earth. Then September is the 9th month of the year. We will have 9-9-9 on September 9th-18th and 27th. The number 9 is Christ Consciousness. The word love adds up to the number 9 (3+6+4+5 =18/9) The Earth will stay in 5/6 D although we will be able to manifest our personal consciousness all the way to 13D.

Many people cannot adjust to the high energy and they go crazy and do crazy things, and that causes more traumas. Mother Earth is also cleaning her body. It started on December 26, 2004 when the Tsunami in Sumatra occurred. There has been a lot of storms and flooding ever since then, along with earth quakes, volcanic eruptions and fires all over the world. These Earth changes will continue until she is totally cleansed.

Saturn is in Sagittarius right now and one of the things that sign rules is the Banking System. It also rules the court system, higher consciousness, fire, and freedom. There will be a lot of fires and heat this summer. Pluto is in Capricorn on 16 degrees right now. New York is affected by 16 degrees Cancer and that is where our Stock Market is located. Look what happened on June 24, the market crashed. Cancer is the opposite sign of Capricorn and this aspect caused large flooding in both China and the East Coast of the USA. There will continue to be more large storms on the East Coast and China, along with storms in other parts of the world.

We are transforming into the new so stay in the now, manifest love, and think with your heart. It is also very important to let go of all old thinking because the old will not work anymore. I send you my love and blessings and I wish everyone living in the great USA a very Happy and safe 4th of July. *Mahala Gayle*

Pilgrimage to the Well of St Seiriol

Guest article by Alison GoddessAsteroids

Penmon-Holy-Well-9290

An old friend who has just finished her dissertation on Water and we are meeting after many years. Anglesey has so many beautiful and special places to visit and she has been researching wells and read about Penmon Priory, so we set off to this beautiful peninsular on the North East corner of the island looking out to Puffin Island. The Well of St Seiriol lies in a beautiful grove of rocks, a sheltered place where the spring once ran freely from the rocks. Now a structure has been built around the well and on past visits it has put me off the actual well and I have spent my time relaxing on the soft grass of the grove. However due to the interest of my friend, we have been immersed in talking about Water as a sentient being, I take a closer peek. She points out that she nearly stood in the well as the water is so still there appears to be nothing there. Later on a few people come over and the man who is older than the young American woman he is showing around tells her how many people step right into the well. Curious I go inside the well structure and sit on the inner wall slate stone seat. Im pleased to notice that what appeared to be sweetie wrappers left as litter are in fact crystals and a ribbon which soothes my agitation about visitors not honouring the place. The water is incredibly still even though it must be seeping in from somewhere. My hands are tingling and I stroke the surface of the water creating an infinity sign. The water feels very pleasant – it is healing me as I feel my mind relax and perhaps my tingling fingers are reciprocating. I am able to sit quietly for a while enjoying the special essence of this still water. It comes to me that this is the same water that was here at the time St Seiriol in 6AD, and the grass and plants are the same albeit in new growth cycles. There is a profound connection to the continuity of nature in a place whilst people and indeed whole civilisations may come and go.

Whilst here we have a conversation about the Kogi Indians as my friend is going to be archiving footage of their incredible culture in Columbia and the message they are wishing to share with the world through a film called Aluna. Many synchronicities have arisen since the visit for both of us and it feels the water of the earth is really crying out to be heard, to be taken care of.

The Priory is close by and we enter the quiet, old church. There are beautiful stained glass windows, Celtic Crosses dating to 1000 AD and most excitingly a rather worn Sheela Na Gig, but there she is on the wall displaying her sacred sexuality and next to her sits a carving of a bearded man who I think of as St Seiriol looking rather like a wild man of the forest.

Many of the Druid Priests and Priestesses converted to Celtic Christianity in fear of persecution from the Romans but they retain Pagan rituals. St Seiriol appears to have been dedicated to a weekly Solar Ritual walking some 25 miles to meet his friend St Cybi from Holy Island at a halfway point. St Seiriol Wyn (Pale) was so named because he walked from East to West with the Sun always behind him. St Cybi Fely was so named as he was Golden  from walking into the Sun from West to East.

IAmMeditation

Brian Roberts has been a close friend of mine for over twenty years. Our friendship began at the Chalice Chapel in Seattle where he had his wellness practice and our group the Esclepius of Light held its Sunday meetings. He has a keen sense of wholeness about him as a body-worker, movement advocate, hypnotherapist, mantra meditation initiator, ministerial counselor, professional Dowser and practitioner of the Alpha Brain Body Balancing. After he left the Chapel I know he got busy with his music and then managed to synthesize all of the healing modalities, original music compositions, mantras, affirmations, invocations and guided meditations into his most powerful Activations and Workbook, the “ I AM Presence” and Diamond Heart Energy Activation’s.

The world has many naturally gifted people in it, each of them fulfilling a destiny and covenant with Spirit. Many can execute their skills in the arts but few are able to articulate the message, activate the spirit and liberate and teach the individual as Brian does.  Over the years I have called upon him to do his remote energy clearing work for others and myself and always to be naturally abundantly satisfied. He walks in the Tao. He is humble. He inspires us because he knows the keys for the Ascension process, to meditate, to be of service, to study and keep challenging oneself onward & upward.

I have completed the 12 week I AM Diamond Heart Energy Activations and work with his recorded 12 minute I AM meditation on many days. I love it. To be able to receive the whole program of all 12 Activations, MP3’s, with the workbook now discounted from $175 to $24.97 is just great. I recommend this program for everyone in spiritual work and especially for healers, energy workers. The program intentions, affirmations, music and meditations restore the soul and spirit.

by Alison Dhuanna

The New Moon in Gemini on the 5th June is very powerful and will trigger events where the Warrior Woman within is challenged to stand in her power. The New Moon is in an exact conjunction to Venus and so these harmonious frequencies are urging us to realign with our inner truth as the world chaos accelerates. The break down of the structures holding the political world order together would be greatly accelerated by a yes vote in the EU election in Britain which is a possibility. Vesta is the Priestess or Medicine woman and is also conjunct the New Moon. Vesta is the part of us that uses focussed intention, prayer and ceremony to restore balance and to connect to the New Earth Energy Grid. In order to access this we have to find places of stillness within our lives. When we bring this consciousness of blissful space and appreciation to the Earth’s Core we are co-creating this new reality. The pressure on those people still trapped in the ‘productivity’ paradigm will continue to intensify until the need to connect to the silence beyond is heard. Vesta in this position helps us to do that. Globally women and men are gathering in circles like the Sisterhood of the Rose in Lemurian times holding the balance of forces and keeping the heart of love open in the collective.

From the beginning of 2016 the karmic nodes have been very active and this New Moon is in a challenging square to South Node (Karmic past), Chiron, Neptune and Pallas Athena in Pisces. Pallas Athena in Pisces uses her brain and her heart to solve problems in the world. She is the Bodhisattva Warrior Woman of the zodiac and she may use art, music and writing as powerful communication tools to change consciousness and unify all sentient beings. I recently had my Pallas Athena return which coincided with completing a Planetary Sound Gong Apprenticeship and music is a very Pisces/Neptune way to transmit the new energies we are integrating. For the past year we have been healing deep seated ancestral wounds and also retrieving soul parts from other life times activating gifts from our lineage to bring into the present now. The fractal lines to the Golden Ages of our history on this planet are open for all who want them. It’s like Cosmic Christmas at the moment when we stop picking at the wounded self and refocus on what we can offer the community or collective. This is the way of Chiron the Wounded Healer. The South Node is in Sextile to Pluto so there are opportunities for big breakthroughs right now.

The North Node is conjunct Astraea Goddess of the Sacred Arts and the Golden Age, Jupiter planet of expansion and Hygeia Goddess of Healing through Dreams and Sleep. Recently I came across an older archetype of Hygeia called Nanshe from Sumeria. Enhedhuanna the High Priestess, in her poems discovered under the deserts of Iraq dating 6000 BC, talks of how the gifts of dream divination were lost when she Enhedhuanna is cast out of the Temple by a male official. Here we have recorded the first impact of the patriarchy’s destruction of the Goddess religion and the impact on her intuitive gifts. I’m feeling in myself a strong wave of psychic power returning and I hope this is true for others too. The astrology certainly suggests that this is a time to recover these gifts and be able to expand into our new karmic destiny as a result.

Ceres the Mother Goddess and Uranus are conjunct in Aries and in a square to Pluto. Ceres in Aries has fiery motivation to come into a place of deep nurturing and appreciation of self so that she can strengthen her body and mind to meet the challenges ahead where we are being asked to step into positions of leadership and power to reclaim the Divine Feminine. This aspect is excellent for breaking addiction patterns to toxic substances or people. We can never truly break an addiction without bringing love and acceptance to the parts of ourselves engaged in these activities wholeheartedly. Many of us have used addiction to numb the pain of being in the sometimes harsh energies of the world so it has become ingrained habit and very hard to let go of. I speak from experience!

The New Moon ascendant is aligned to the Pleiades so we can expect a flow of cosmic help for all who need it in this next challenging cycle and with Mars opposite aligned with Algol this suggests as well this is a big opportunity for change. Algol is the Dark Goddess Stellar frequency so this too suggests it time to love and dance with our shadows. Which parts of yourself do you hide from others and are you in some way ashamed of these parts? Are you ready to let people see who you really are with all your human struggles?

Astrology Report for June

By Dorene Carrel

June is highlighted by several dynamic planetary patterns that will tend to keep us moving at a faster pace. The main focus is the mutable t-square between Neptune in Pisces, Saturn in Sagittarius and Jupiter in Virgo, which is in effect from February 27 to July 21. It is made more prominent this month by the New Moon in Gemini on June 4, which turns it into a mutable grand cross. We can use this enhanced energy to make significant leaps in our understanding, intuition and visions for the future. This type of pattern calls for a realignment of one’s goals and priorities, as they may shift and change over the next few months.  After Mars turns direct later this month, we will be better able to make any major changes.

Fortunately, from June 1-7 we are assisted by a grand earth trine between Pluto, Jupiter and Mercury, which makes it easier to stay focused and grounded.  The earth signs of Capricorn, Virgo and Taurus may benefit the most in terms of attracting favorable opportunities.   If we have worked hard toward a particular goal, we can now make greater progress and earn some rewards.

The New Moon occurs on June 4 at 15 Gemini.  It is conjunct Venus in Gemini, opposes Saturn in Sagittarius, and squares Neptune/South Node in Pisces and Jupiter/North Node in Virgo.  This powerful Mutable Grand Cross, with a Gemini focus, can help us restructure our patterns of thinking, beliefs and communication, especially around relationships (Venus/Nodes).  Sun/Venus in Gemini assists us in refining our values about relationships and money. Saturn in Sagittarius encourages us to break away from the past and become our own authority. Jupiter in Virgo and Neptune in Pisces expand our perspective and attune us to the role of faith and grace in our lives.  The Sabian symbol for this degree, “Two Dutch children talking to each other, exchanging their knowledge; the need to clarify one’s experiences through actual contacts with like-minded individuals,” suggests that we can know ourselves better through our sharing with receptive individuals and spiritual community.

On June 13 Neptune turns retrograde at 12 Pisces.  This cycle, which lasts until mid-November, may allow us to receive clearer messages from our subconscious mind through meditation, dreams, visualization and intuitive guidance.  On June 17 Saturn squares Neptune for the second time, which can bring confusion and inner uncertainty. We may still be holding onto outworn judgments or illusions that need to be released. Events at this time can relate back to the first aspect that occurred last November 26.

On June 20 the Full Moon occurs at 29 Sagittarius 33.  It opposes Venus in Gemini and squares Chiron in Pisces.  The 29th degree suggests a theme of closure or completion. As it is also near the World Point degree (0 Capricorn), we may see more prominent events on the world stage.  This is the second full moon in Sagittarius, with a focus on broadening one’s horizons to find greater truth and meaning, as well as following one’s true authentic path.  Venus is featured once again, bringing in a heart-centered theme, and Chiron can bring events from the past that need healing.  The Sabian symbol keynotes for these degrees, “The setting of social standards through personal excellence and competition,” and “The need to pay homage to traditional values upon which the Invisible Community of the spirit is built,” suggests honoring the importance of previous learning, values and community in our evolutionary journey.

Also on June 20, the Summer Solstice occurs less than twelve hours after the Full Moon, adding to the potency of this time. In addition, a mutable grand square pattern forms between Neptune, Saturn, Jupiter and Mercury (now in Gemini), which brings further focus to clarifying our perceptions and communications.  This may be a good time to pursue education or training opportunities.  This theme is further enhanced by Jupiter in trine to Pluto on June 26.  We may also attract prosperity now or initiate a project that can bring it to us later. It may be a good time to buy a lotto ticket.

Chiron in Pisces turns retrograde on June 27, allowing us to give and receive healing support.  On June 29 Mars turns direct at 23 Scorpio, which can stir up some angry protests and inner restlessness. Be careful when driving. However, it also provides us with increased momentum for moving forward with new goals.

July brings more grand trines and a stationary Uranus.   Blessings for a fun and prosperous summer!
