Grand Fire Trine ~> Guru Rinpoche day July 2012

Celebrating an extra special Guru Rinpoche day, Saturday 28th July, and rejoicing the birth of Tibet’s lotus-born ‘Second Buddha’, Padmasambhava, is symbolic of venerating all our spiritual teachers.

The golden Leo Sun, self-confident, generous and regal, makes a helpful trine aspect to the responsive Moon in far-sighted Sagittarius (sign of a wise teacher); these two also form a union with the
destiny-fulfilling North-Node, creating a very exciting ‘Grand Fire Trine’ with altruistic Uranus (and strategic Pallas Athena) in assertive Aries, so all three fire signs positively constellate to rouse creativity.

Grand Fire Trines tend to bestow high-level energy, with an excess of dynamic and exhilarating activity. Allow for unpredictable spontaneity and enjoy a cosmic and lively weekend!

Giving thanks for all my teachers _/♥\_

New Moon in Cancer ~ July 2012

In the Buddhist tradition, due to countless rebirths, we view all beings as having been our protective gentle mother, someone who has unconditionally taken care of us as best she could. Even if you don’t take on board the concept of reincarnation, this kind of thinking is helpful when dealing with difficult or frustrating situations or relationships (even if with one’s own mother in this lifetime). When we recall our Mother’s sympathy and kind-heartedness as we were growing-up, it becomes easier to generate the wish to repay such benevolence, by developing compassion, patience and love towards others.

I mention this now before a new moon at 26 Cancer (5:23am British summer time, 19th July) which highlights past memories, as well as emotional sensitivity and family connections, be it immediate or global family, as Cancer is ruled by the moon, doubling the intensity of any sentiment.

This new moon, hot on the heels of yesterday’s powerful ‘Cardinal Cross of the Central Spiritual Sun’, provides intuitive strength and determination to square-up to and act upon what may appear to be hard and difficult issues (especially during a Mercury retrograde); while the Cancerian influence also reminds us to watch hasty moves and show care to self and others, just as a Mother would her child.

Guru Purnima ~ Full Capricorn Moon July 2012

Tonight’s full Capricorn Moon (July 3rd) suggests we are all, somehow, in the midst of change. For some the changes are sudden and dramatic, for others it is incredibly subtle, but powerful nonetheless.

Whatever events currently occupy body, speech or mind, during this full Moon (over the next few days), instinct deepens and intuition heightened, stimulating solar plexus and crown chakra so individual self can align with a DIVINE purpose_(♥)_

This is Guru Purnima, the Full Moon in which we honour the Divine Guru (within) _(♥)_
