No, I’m not becoming a site where you can find your horoscope. But Barbara Hand Clow weaves a wonderful narrative into her reading that is aware of 2012 and current events, plugged into Mayan chronology, and long-term in scope.
And this is an unusual time in terms of star and planetary influences. So just this once and perhaps at a few other significant conjunctures.
Thanks to Kau’ila.
Leo New Moon: August 9, 2010 View Chart
The New Moon in Leo has arrived! This is your time to be a star, to delve deeply into your heart and remember your purpose. How do you really want to be? How do you want to express yourself now? What kind of impression do you want to make on the people that you care about the most? This is your moment to shine. This year’s Leo New Moon suggests you focus on your personal quest, since you will be constantly tested by radical changes in the world “out there” – the true mirror of your inner self.
When I was a kid, I was fascinated with pinball machines and played them as much as possible. Now, I’m glad I put in my time with the crazy little steel ball flying back and forth from bumper to bumper racking up scores with flashing lights and ringing bells. This New Moon sets up a field that makes us feel like we are the little ball that crashes around from pillar to post in the game of life. We feel ourselves flying madly from point to point, flooded with images from the inner facets of our souls, and these images imprint long-lost dreams from forgotten times when we were not separate from Earth.
Also, this is a Super Moon when the Moon is closest to the Earth as it conjuncts the Sun, so our deepest feelings are activated. Earth’s tectonic systems will be activated by the tidal pull of the Moon, and we’ll feel the powers of the second dimension, which could trigger earthquakes, volcanoes, and more floods.
Recalling the Spring Equinox reading, we seem to have gone through three rapid time accelerations during the beginning of our seasonal year. Now, for most of you, the Ecstatic Origami Summer has been fulfilling your expectations beyond belief. This New Moon suggests we will accomplish many things because this is a geometrical expansion of our consciousness. This makes it hard to locate in 3D because this expansion is spherical, which creates adequate space in our bodies to experience multidimensionality. I am seeing many signs that nine dimensions are now ripping the reality field wide open, which can be seen by studying this summer’s crop circles: Wow!
Visualizing yourself as an origami sphere, the Pleiadians (the Ps) see that you are painting unusual images on these geometrical surfaces. Often the lines are still indistinct, but you are actually making Earth visible to the Pleiades! For example, with Pluto in Capricorn, the Ps see your visions of the underworld god as a determined goat butting his horns at global banks and corporations, Catholic rectories, and Afghan governments. Yet, these teetering structures are still standing.
The Leo Sun shines brightly in your faces while you form your geometrical bodies. On the space reserved for Saturn’s imprint, we see images of things balancing now, but then as soon as one thing stabilizes, it morphs into a new shape. The surface designated for Uranus is the largest, while Jupiter moves in closer and closer. We see images of people demanding what they deserve, what they’ve awaited for many years, as the power of Aries increases.
The colors of these exquisite origami facets will be fully painted this fall, and these exciting personal spheres will support your personal development. Recently I had to take some peeks into the near future, since before Gerry and I depart on our fall trip, I have to write multiple files for AstroFlash! Much to my delight and astonishment, the origami spheres we’ve been creating that were seeded during the spring’s triple time-acceleration will be very complete by the end of summer! Therefore, during the Fall Equinox, you will draw down the spiritual dimensions right into your expanded geometry, which will draw divine realms down into your hearts.
The New Moon in Leo is the ideal time to intentionally open your heart, and this is especially important this summer.And cosmic balancing is coming when the Sun passes into Libra. With all these powers in Aries/Libra, the human harmonic is resonating out into the universe. The natural vibrational tone of Earth is singing to the stars, and they are singing back.
The New Moon in 17 Leo has no aspects to it, which is unusual. This lonely, dark, gravitationally-activated Moon evokes the remembrance of desires we’ve kept deeply hidden in our hearts. Be honest about it: every one of you longs for deep initiation, for total bliss in the now, and for being an avatar, a star. Well, why not? Without aspects to it, this Leo New Moon explodes your heart’s central cavity and disperses your desires out into the cosmic realms. Because you’ve built your origami sphere, you can move out safely into the geometrical scaffolding that you are generating. Who ever said you can’t pursue your bliss and expand your pure heart?
Stop reading for a moment and listen to those “Blue Meanies” that say you can’t be what you want to be. Acknowledge them, then banish them to flow away down the river of time. Choosing cosmic bliss is about using your formidable will powers, the courage of your heart. This T-square to Pluto in Capricorn involving six planets is the vehicle for strengthening your wills during this New Moon. Normally, the New Moon in Leo would be the tool we’d use to activate our wills, but instead we need to use the cardinal T-square, since this New Moon has no aspects. The question is, how?
Saturn, Venus, and Mars are conjunct in early Libra; thus, as we receive (Venus) new structures (Saturn), we are able to integrate and activate them (Mars). A tremendous release of knowledge and potential new perspectives is permeating reality because of the Afghan war leaks (Wikileaks.com), the oil volcano, the struggles to reform immigration, and worldwide anger over being robbed by the Elite. When something changes in one place, it changes in another, so everything is shifting in your personal lives.
Mars will be close to Venus in Libra until mid-September, and then they travel together in Scorpio into mid-October. Mars and Venus traveling together in the sky means that when we receive information, we act on it easily and forcefully. Things are moving now, and men and women will work together well and joyfully. During the Leo New Moon, this reception/action principle is all about new structures inspired by Saturn’s balancing influence in Libra.
Much of what will be created will come out of the new balances constructed out of old things. For example, I think the end is in sight for the Afghan War because people are plain tired of it and not convinced by government propaganda. The leaks of secret files make it harder and harder to persuade people to support war, especially the soldiers. These changes in viewpoint are expanded and transformed by Jupiter/Uranus opposing the three planets in Libra, because as soon as something formulates that works at all, it tends to get bigger and bigger.
Your emerging origami geometrical body makes free space for new ways to be. Then, this pulling apart of outworn habits by all the Libra/Aries tension nucleates the old junk in the ferocious entrails of Pluto, who looms over the struggle. It is time for the politicians and generals of the West to see that they are choosing death and mayhem if they continue to invade the East and pursue their hidden agendas.
Amidst tension in early June over the blockage of flotillas attempting to deliver relief to starving Gaza, Jupiter exactly conjuncted Uranus (0 Aries) on June 8. The 90-year old journalist, Helen Thomas, spoke out against Jewish control of Palestine, and she was immediately retired as if she had become a dingbat old lady. Retrograde Jupiter is again getting closer to retrograde Uranus, and there will be a second conjunction in late Pisces a few days before the Fall Equinox. This conjunction inspires the protection of basic rights, so there will be more demands to take care of the less fortunate, and people will rise up against bullies, pigs, and destroyers.
This T-square is potent enough to cause revolutions, so I advise you to take great care now. It would be wise to identify what happened or what you were feeling when Saturn opposed Uranus for the fifth and last time on July 26, the only opposition that occurs in Aries/Libra.
On the very day of the first Saturn/Uranus (in Virgo/Pisces) opposition on November 8, 2008, Obama was elected. This is why the world looks to the United States to change first, so the world can follow. The Afghan War files were leaked a few hours before the final Saturn/Uranus opposition, so this exposure of how the game of war is played will end this occupation. During the exact opposition, we had the White House Press Secretary Gibbs trying to play down its shattering effects; this certainly seems to be “the summer of leaks”.
The facts are, the leaks are a stunning blow to the American war effort, and it will probably contribute to the end of the war, just as Daniel Ellsburg’s Pentagon Papers ended the Vietnam War. Of course, we know this war is ending, since the Afghan leaks occurred exactly during the final Saturn/Uranus opposition. This is the great transit that always throws out old forms to make space for new possibilities.
Then, in the days after the final opposition, due to the arrival of Mars, then Venus, in Libra, we’ve had constant oppositions to Uranus and Jupiter and constant squares to Pluto, the summer pinball game. New paths are forming with Jupiter conjunct Uranus, while the oppositions from Saturn, Venus, and Mars are triggering multiple new possibilities. This stimulation is so fast and constant that it causes old ways to just fly out the window. Then, anybody who tries to hang on to them flies out with them such as generals, heads of corporations, like BP, and journalists who stop parroting the party line; rolling heads are signs of great change.
The demands for truth and justice coming from Jupiter conjunct Uranus in Aries are shifting the balances big time just before the Fall Equinox, when Jupiter and Uranus are back in Pisces manifesting the spiritual aspects of these new paths. Considering this opposition of five planets in Aries/Libra, your opportunities to create peace and harmony in your own life are exemplary, just as you have the opportunity to create peace in the world.
Let go of old habits that no longer serve your highest ideals; listen, for a change, to people who don’t agree with you; and speak bravely about any new ideas that excite you. Stretch yourself as much as possible in all the areas of your life because this is a grand opportunity. I know you will challenge yourselves, since this opposition of five planets is aimed straight at the top of the T-square to Pluto in Capricorn, the great cosmic destroyer. Booga! Booga! Go for it!!
Pluto in early Capricorn near the Galactic Center is stimulated in a personal and transpersonal way by the five planets squaring it. Pluto’s natural urge is to capture and rape anything in sight, to penetrate things until they wake up and transform into new and stronger forces. Pluto destroys anything that is in the way of growth and change, and in Capricorn, he focuses on large structures that reflect collective agendas. Pluto is about integrity, and so structural forms that do not represent the will of the people are getting an intense cleanout and purification now.
The square from Mars in Libra causes Pluto to demand that heads roll in wars until the people’s intentions are honored. The square from Venus in Libra forces Pluto to hear the feminine and be enticed by gentler and more seductive approaches. (Expect pillow talk revelations this month, and watch the goddesses take down men bloated with power and ego.) The square from Uranus in Aries means that ferocious change, and even chaos, will go on and on until resistance breaks, since Uranus conjunct Jupiter in Aries is such a huge force. Pushed by all these squares, Pluto will smash anything that must go. The potential of this T-Square is monumental, and there will be great changes in the world by summer’s end. Be patient while things crash around you and then reformulate; take a nap if it is too much!
We have to keep asking how we can do this because so much is being asked of us. We turn to Mercury, the little body inside Earth’s solar orbit, that inspires your mind to read the intentions of the Sun and to use this information to create. Mercury in mid-Virgo is also unaspected! He is past the Sun, which means he is very smart, and he is operating on his own dime in a thorough and careful way, because he’s in Virgo. We’ve just experienced one change after another as Venus and Mars stimulated Pluto, Uranus, and Jupiter with squares and opposition, so now Mercury in Virgo helps us clean up the files on the day of the New Moon.
The changes during the last lunar month are very unsettling, so Mercury says ‘do an inventory’. Forget the larger picture, and list the changes you’ve made during this last month. Once you’ve listed them, examine them to see if they are complete, need more work, or maybe you’d like to change something? The Virgo New Moon (September 8) will enable you to focus your new spherical self very well, so now it is time to decide whether you have everything the way you want it to be. Why not? You have a right to be happy!
There is still more going on in this New Moon chart. Chiron is closely conjunct to Neptune in late Aquarius, and they quincunx Saturn, Venus, and Mars in Libra. This is a monumental call to become spiritual warriors, and the best path is alignment with Conscious Convergence, which occurred on July 17/18. On those days, Carl Calleman called us to align with a new pulse that will carry us forward into the Universal Underworld, which opens March 3, 2011. (Seewww.Calleman.com.)
Gerry and I created our intention with a group at the Edgar Cayce Institute in Virginia Beach, and it was a very special time. Gerry and I finally achieved total equality as teachers, and many others said that the Conscious Convergence vibration inspired equality between men and women. So, considering Chiron/Neptune quincunx Mars/Venus/Saturn in Libra, this balancing will inspire deep core healing that opens our relationships to spiritual inspiration. It could cause a great revelation about sexual abuse this month, which makes me think the Vatican won’t escape the media during this lunation. I’d like to offer some very interesting information that I’ve been collecting for awhile.
Months ago, I mentioned a marvelous book by Marsha Keith Schuchard, William Blake’s Path to Spiritual Wisdom. This is actually a book about a significant sexual movement during the Planetary Underworld (1755-2011), a movement that involved using sexuality for initiation, which became the deep energy source of secret societies that the Elite operate to control the world. We are not going to break the power of the Elite until their use of sex for controlling humanity is revealed. Once the dirty little secrets are out, abusers can’t get away with it.
Schuchard’s book helped me see that use of sexuality for power is a Planetary Underworld (PU) creation, even though sex for initiation goes back thousands of years when it was not a secret within communities. The PU form of this behavior was used to cull feminine power to fuel industrialization; that is, women’s images of themselves were taken from them during this Underworld. Take note of modern advertising and see why women might want to wear burkas!
This is a complex topic, and I will not say more, but I suggest those who are curious about this dark and manipulative issue may want to read Schuchard. Meanwhile, we can count on the exposure of more abuse in the Church, especially when Pluto goes direct in September. (There was a noticeable slowdown in the public revelation of priestly sexual abuse when Pluto went retrograde in May.) Once Chiron and Neptune are less than a degree apart, from September 2010 through March 2011, these deep wounds will be out in the open, and we will heal them.
I think this lunation is going to be fascinating, productive, creative, and disconcerting. These configurations ask us each to shine, to do our best, to choose to become all that we have always wanted to be. Remember to ask the spirits to assist you, now that you have so successfully called them back into our world. Remember that the Pleiadians have always said the best activity in 3D is sex, so have fun doing it and consider learning more about the profound powers that are inherent in connecting with each other.
