Our new cycles ahead

Well, the activity continues – no hiding from these massive times of change that rage rapidly around our heads.

New Moon in Virgo
September’s Virgo’s New Moon on the 19th continued the concentration and focus which has been with us all year. Our dear unrelenting strict father Saturn sat together with the Sun and Moon – at the exact same degree (that’s close!!).

The New Moon brings with it the energy pattern for the month ahead. September is already a significant time – for us here in the Southern Hemisphere, we celebrate the Spring Equinox – our brothers and sisters in the North enjoy the Autumn Equinox.

It’s a significant time of change, naturally, in Nature’s cycle. For us here in the South, a time of rebirth and new beginnings. A glorious time of fresh new leaves, budding trees and blossoms galore. Baby lambs frolic in the fields, calves are everywhere where there are cows, people feel inspired, gardens come to life and everyone wants to be outside. Mostly everyone loves spring!

Do we understand the significance of the season – the opportunities it brings us? We obviously do unconsciously – but how to translate that into conscious intent?
In the New Moon chart Saturn’s influence is hard to ignore. He’s been prominent in our world for a couple of years now. He represents the tried and true, the old, not the new – the foundations we lay, the materials with which we build – our structures, our bones, our teeth and our knees.

He’s been having a bit of a tiff – you could say, with Uranus – more like a war for some. ‘Get with the times’ Uranus blasts with his electrical energy – he goes so fast. ‘Impetuous youth, thinks he knows all, I will show him a thing or two’ Saturn growls in his beard. If it wasn’t so impounding, it’s been going on for so long now, we could’ve got bored! But it’s a little difficult to become ensconced in boredom when simply ‘everything’ is changing all around you.

Can you feel their pull – they work inside you as well, this is not just happening outside – it’s going on within our heads.
‘This way, that way’ ‘god, I’m exhausted, let me rest’ ‘can’t everything stay the same, at least just for a breath?’
‘I’m afraid not’ the bellowing sound comes from above – ‘there’s things to do, just get on with it!’

The Asteroid Pallas Athene

'whose occult teachings are derived from the serpent-haired Gorgon Medusa whose face she wears on her breastplate. The serpent aspect of the Medusa represented the wisdom of the oracles and granted the ability to hear the voices of prophecy.’ Demetra George "Asteroid Goddesses'.

. . . . . . . . groovy!!!!

She sits with Saturn, the Sun and the Moon to give counsel – how fortunate we are. As with the last New Moon the Goddess energy is powerfully evident at this time. At last, the age of the patriarchy is coming to an end – time for the Divine Feminine to spread her wings.

‘Pallas Athene also embodies the magickal will that enables us to create and control our own reality. Rather than depending upon ceremony and ritual, Pallas spontaneously manifests whatever is needed through the mode of creative visualization.’

‘The occultist, the scientist who uses natural laws to manifest ideas onto the physical plane’
Demetra George

I have a personal link to Pallas and feel very excited that she is manifesting at this time. God knows we need her!

Mercury – our dear feather-footed friend – is also a part of the New Moon quad – making sure that the ‘message’ gets out. Where would we be without Mercury’s swift networking ability?

In the opposite court Uranus stand defiant, he’s pretty strong minded and doesn’t like being bossed. But with the four on the other side, he’ll have his work cut out even though Juno is sitting near by. ‘If we change (Uranus) our way of relating to each other (Juno) then maybe we have a chance’ they put on the table.
Spring Equinox
Only 4 days after the New Moon the Spring Equinox continues the concentrated energy of Saturn, Mercury and Pallas – influencing and colouring the direction and intention of the Sun.

Of course the Sun has now moved into Libra – 0 degrees Libra, the Equinox, the beginning of the next three month cycle. In the South the spring quarter and in the North, the autumn.

This ‘beginning’ influences a longer cycle – a three month cycle – natures cycles of Spring, Summer, Winter and Spring – the quarter times of the year.

The time of the Equinox has been honoured by many for centuries – a conscious recognition and acknowledged intention of the energies available – honoured, accepted and used for growth and evolvement.

We have lost touch with these cycles as we live further away from nature’s vibration. Our machines, our buildings, our mod cons, our technologies have made some things easier – or have they? But have shielded us from nature’s bounty.

I guess that’s why lots of us still love going camping, walking in the bush, swimming in the ocean, climbing mountains or just sitting in the garden – we need Mother Nature and at times we crave her.

So during this longer cycle – taking us up to the end of the year, Saturn, Mercury and Pallas will be combining their wisdom, ancient knowledge, mental brilliance, serious thought, attention to detail, discrimination, healing knowledge, structural awareness and exceptional analysis – to the pot, for mixing.

In the opposite court – Uranus and Juno work together with their insightful visions of new ways of relating and new ways of healing. ‘Faith, commitment and reverence must be brought to all partners’, ‘the meaning and value of true commitment’, ‘joining forces in a way that completes us’ – the time of ‘community’ not the ‘lone wolf’ is upon us.

So each of the groups heads down, work feverishly – they know they’re being depended on to come to the party – serious times, they’re aware.
Big brother Pluto plays a significant part in this cycle – he challenges the Sun. Well, the Sun’s pretty big and powerful – but Pluto, we know what he’s capable of.

This is a challenge of power – interesting eh? You could say that challenge surrounds us in this world today. How do we use our power, do we recognise that we even have any? How is power distributed? And what do we do with it?

Sun and Pluto coming together is all about transformation. Some things will die and some will be born and the cycle continues.

The Sun has just begun her journey through Libra – the sign of Relationships. Uranus is already giving her a hard time – ‘they need to change, they need to change’ he goes on – ‘they cannot continue this way’.

The Sun in Libra can get protective – my friends, they always come first, I’ll do everything to protect them, don’t you dare intrude.
Yes, dear Libra, relationships are a wonderful thing, but like everything else are up for review – the way we relate impacts everything – especially the relationship with ourself.

The Sun has Uranus opposing and Pluto challenging it – dare say his environment has no hope of staying the same – Libra will cop it this time round. The Sun is proud, brilliant and bright, we depend on him for life on Earth. He emits the ‘energy’ of the constellation he’s visiting – it’s this energy that needs to be transformed – the planets are merely messengers – doing their jobs to support evolvement.

Mother Moon sits in Scorpio – enhancing the mood of intense transformation at the deepest level. Our moods could get serious, as we delve down deep within – ‘what do I really need to feel safe and secure?’ "How do I connect with my deepest needs?’ ‘How do I satisfy my longing to unite?’

Moon in Scorpio you couldn’t call her light – lots of deep, pensive feelings could colour our psyche. ‘So much is changing’ ‘will I be safe’ ‘what do I need to make it through?’

Mars sits in Cancer – a bit of ‘grumpy’ at home – lots of activity on the home front ‘I hope not another one of those crashes!’ Mars in Cancer creates a lot of movement in the home, ‘will I move, or create a new foundation?’ Be mindful when Cancer comes this way, he can get a bit touchy and down right cranky. Just keep it to yourself, don’t go throwing it around, ‘I’ve just cleaned the house, I don’t want your dirty energy in here’.

Lilith – our Divine Feminine remerging as we speak – god, what a relief – at last, at last. She’s still working away with ‘Destiny’ man, they’re making their plans for a whole new world, just wait and see.

There is a ‘diamond’ in this Equinox chart – The South Node, Moon Uranus and Juno.
Just at a glance, what does that mean – a special gift for us in the energy of these heavenly bodies.

"Transformation in our old ways of relating. The emotional responses we’ve learnt as a child within our families – those unconscious patterns that we’ve taken on as our own, that have caused us trauma and distress in our lives – now have the opportunity to change!

New ways of relating, of coming together, of forming ‘families’, is now possible. Transformation of our deepest emotions – transformation of our relationships, as we understand what we carry from the past and acknowledge what belongs to us here and now, our innate resources, our own feelings and our own responses. Our ability to create our own world"

We are the guardians of this Earth – us humans – it is now time for human evolution – knowing our self, our own unique identity, our purpose and the understanding needed for coming together as a human community.

Much learning is being made available for us here on Earth in these very special times.

Keep movin, keep lovin, keep feeling grateful, keep laughin and keep havin fun!

lotsa luv
