April Full Moon calls for Truth, Choice and Action

This month appears to be rather interesting with many cosmic ups and downs, twists and turns, eccentric insights, and changes and reversals that will definitely keep you on your toes. The themes of Truth, Choice and Action create a channel for transformation that is much like the birth canal. The only way out is by going through it and there is no going back.

:: Truth comes as an inner knowing not yet defined.
:: Choice is the emotional commitment that needs no explanation or reason.
:: Action is the disciplined follow-through that anchors a new path.

We often think of truth as something connected to our thoughts and intellect, something we can define and explain, but truth in this context is a fuller knowing and more of an insight that does not yet have a mental definition. Truth will come from an intuitive reaction that precedes understanding and will have to be trusted as authentic. This is challenging as truth is very personal and your truth will not be everyone’s experience.

It is important to claim your own truth at the same time allowing others to claim theirs without judgment.

The monkey wrench in all of this is the deceptive quality or the artisan creative energy we have as an underlying theme for the year. This energy supports possibilities for manipulating ‘truth’ to feed the ego and the desires of the false personality.

If your truth is not coming from a place of neutrality and essence but rather from a place of motivation by one of the seven obstacles (Greed, Self–Destruction, Arrogance, Self-Deprecation, Impatience, Martyrdom, Stubbornness) then you are vulnerable to some deception. You will also need to watch for others throwing their ‘truth’ at you that is clearly motivated by ego and full of self-deception.

Any truth that seems to have a neat little definition and explanation is probably compromised by machinations of the false personality.

Watch for projection as a high probability this month and set some good boundaries against taking anything personally that comes at you from others. This goes for your personal behavior as well. Claim your truth but don’t project it onto others. Make sure your truth is motivated by essence and not your false personality.

Choice will follow an insight or inner knowing as the commitment of the heart to make a change or to proceed in a certain direction. This is also an intuitive process that requires trust in your personal truth that is driving the choice.

Action is what follows as the confirmation of your choice. If your truth is an insight that a relationship is not right for you, and the choice is to make a change, then the action step is to physically complete the ending of that relationship. There is a saying, ‘talk is cheap’ and actions speak louder than words. So, you will need to step it up this month and be disciplined about following through with your choices and decisions.

If you don’t follow through with action because of fear, doubt, ambivalence, or worry about what others may think, you may get lost in the limbo place of not being able to move forward.

Mercury Retrograde March 2019 ~ Wings Of Wisdom (Marina)

We have a Mercury retrograde from 6 to 29 March 2019 in Pisces.
Generally though, the traditional advice with Mercury retrograde is “Don’t travel, Don’t sign contracts. Don’t marry. Don’t touch electrics!” However, the whole Mercury retrograde cycle actually lasts eight weeks and happens three times, sometimes even four times in a year! That’s a long time to hide under the duvet and a real waste of a truly magical time. Mercury generally zips between two worlds, or rather, the two hemispheres of our brain.

Effects of a Lunar Eclipse (Tanaaz)

A total lunar eclipse happens when the earth’s shadow falls directly over the full moon. For a brief period, the moon disappears and the night turns dark. In ancient times, it was believed that this darkness was a sign of great change and a bad omen for what was to come. These beliefs have created superstitions around lunar eclipses, some of which are still observed today, most of them seem to stem from the fact that the dark night and shadow on the moon brings an ominous feeling.

February- Month of Renewal

Following on from the Full Moon lunar eclipse that was witnessed at the end of January, this coming week, we will experience a partial solar eclipse.  A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between the earth and the sun, obscuring view of the sun from our vantage point here on earth.  With this event being  “partial” eclipse, this means that the sun will only be obscured partially.

Although this eclipse probably will not be able to be visible from Adelaide (we will have to wait until July before we can witness a partial solar eclipse), it will be visible in southern South America, in particular Chile, Argentina, Paraguay, and Uruguay, and even in Antarctica.  This does not mean however that its energies will not effect us, because they will, regardless of whether we can witness the event or not.

So what does this partial solar eclipse mean energetic wise?

A New Year and Many New Moons

As I write this, we are already a fortnight in of this new year, which, in esoteric numerology equates to not only a “2” year, but a Master year of “11/2”.

“2” is the number of cooperation, sensitivity towards others, association and balance.  Master numbers relate to an additional potency in energy allowing for a higher achievement of the base number, which is considered to be achieved only through the action of higher service, ie for the benefit of mankind.  With this  in mind, “11” relates to the power of “1” but on a higher vibrational (or spiritual) level, ie, inspiration, illumination, and revelation.

2018 is described as the year to be “patiently open to receive”, where, according to the Astrology Club, opportunities will present themselves to us where we will be “invited to work with our passion and sense of belonging particularly as these qualities spring from our urge to create”.  Throughout the coming year we will be shown the way in which we are to channel this energy, at all times, however, we need to keep in mind to utilise these openings in ways that will enable us to actually contribute to the better world that we yearn to see.
