Heart-Mind & the Lunar Eclipse November 2012

An intense Venus Saturn conjunction perfects tomorrow in Scorpio. This is karmic love at it's most profound. Fear-based astro-peeps can get quite het-up when they consider a Venus Saturn conjunction, and especially one in Scorpio that conjures up deeply secret and (tantric) powerful relations. 

While it is true that, depending upon the dynamics and the interaction of chart, person, circumstance and karma, this can be a challenging conjunction; it is one that also symbolises commitment and responsibility towards that which we love - and that can freak out ‘freedom lovers’ (a.k.a. commitment-phobes) who have yet to understand the concepts of interconnection and interdependence, and how there is liberation in knowing Oneness in all things. 

From a personal point of view, some of the most important things/people/events I have ever been involved with have this celestial pledge of dedication, durability and devotion. So when dealing with matters of the heart over the next few days  it may well be a case of ‘feel the fear, but do it anyway’, especially when developing relationship or building business and/or career ideas and connections that bring about respect and self-esteem. 

From the astrological point of view Venus and Saturn are making a marvelous aspect (60°) to the current Mars-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn. This is a little bit complex but I trust (hope!) you will be able to follow the importance of the relationship planets (Venus and Mars) in relationship: Mars and Pluto, while in Capricorn, are also in mutual disposition and ‘friend’s’ with the Scorpio Saturn: Pluto rules Scorpio (the sign Saturn is in) and Mars is exalted in Capricorn, meaning that Mars works best in this sign as he loses the wilfulness associated with blundering chaos and gains mastery through his initiation into Universal understanding. Together, this mighty combination suggests strength, stamina and stealth – all of which can be used for good or bad.   

Venus, however, is in her detriment in Scorpio, although being empowered by her good relations to Mars and Pluto, the Goddess’ darker energies may well mean that jealousy, obsessions and paranoia are given the short sharp shrift. 
In our new world order based upon love-wisdom and compassion, such difficult dynamics are used to help overcome duality, activate the heart-mind, and generate the everflowing nectar of Bodhicitta, relative and ultimate.  
Wishing to develop Bodhicitta, and that all mother sentient beings are free from suffering, is considered relative, and this may well be enough during the powerful eclipse coming up early in the week, as the lunar eclipse sparks off once again the theme of 2012: global heart-mind activation. 

The lunar eclipse on the 28th November constellates the 7 degrees Sagittarius Sun and Gemini Moon, within a ‘finger of fate’ or ‘finger of g0d’ (nodding to Greg for Divine spelling), yod formation. This ‘finger’ points directly to the Moon during the eclipse, representing our emotions; responses and feminine intuition lie in the (Gemini) mind, which resides in the heart.

So wherever 7 degrees Gemini-Sagittarius, Scorpio or Capricorn are in your chart, these are the areas now involved in adjusting to the development of heart-mind. I say adjusting because this is configuration is like a push-me-pull-you, when funnelling intense pressure requires consideration, effort and precision. During this Lunar Eclipse, as it is the moon which provides the precision, it is essential to look at Gemini more deeply.
  Doing so with esoteric astrology we see the sign of communication, neighbourhood, and siblings, Gemini’s esoteric ruler is Venus, planet of love and harmonious relations; learning to communicate love therefore, to our brothers and sisters within our immediate environment is essential to enhance the orthodox mind of ideas and thoughts. 

This degree of the lunar eclipse is also the very same degree planet Venus was at during her epic transit of the Sun this year. And it is also the very same degree which will be aspected at the Winter Solstice 2012 by Jupiter, Sagittarian ruler of wisdom and higher learning. Get the picture? Consciousness resides in the heart. Train the mind now and see the bigger picture with a loving heart, and be released from the bondage of attachment and aversion.

There’s also a deliciously magical and profound cosmic energy to tap into that helps soften any harsh revelation. The celestial delight I speak of is due to Goddess Venus alluring and loving in Scorpio (with Saturn), linking up with Earth Mother Ceres in fellow sensitive water sign, Cancer; together Venus and Ceres then constellate a gorgeous ‘Grand Water Trine’ with spiritual Neptune and healing Chiron in Pisces. For the next few days we may even sense certain things, ideas, people and situations are worth loving, forgiving and saving, such as honesty, nature and friendship.This Grand Water Trine will come into greater focus with the Moon in Cancer on the 30th November.

Next month we have a new supermoon to look forward to and, of course, our Winter Solstice global meditation for world peace and heart-mind alignment.

Diwali Solar Eclipse ☼ Sacred Fire Circle

Wishing everyone a very Happy Eclipse Diwali ~> this year a shadowy festival with a CIRCLE of SUN’s SACRED LIGHT!

The Asian Diwali light festivities now celebrate with a shimmer, twinkle and sparkle during the darkest hours of the old Moon, before the 22degrees Scorpio new SuperMoon Eclipse tonight (Tuesday 13th or tomorrow morning Wednesday 14th depending upon where you are in the world) at 22:

08 GMT.

This solar eclipse is only visible at the northernmost tip of Australia. Totality will last for about four minutes. Eclipses are a cosmic interplay between Sun, Moon and Earth which happen twice a year, coming in pairs (Lunar eclipse Nov 28th). A Solar eclipse takes place when a New Moon crosses the orbital plane of the ecliptic and passes in front of the Sun.

As seen from Earth, the Moon temporarily blocks most of the Sun’s light; though we do see a ring of light around the Sun we can also witness the Sun’s amazing ring of light, the ‘Corona’, in full splendour. The Corona truly is the Sun’s crowning glory, and eclipses offer a rare glimpse of the Sun’s powerful electromagnetism, as the Sun radiates its’ powerful and brilliant ‘Light of Intelligence’ into our solar system.

As spiritual masters have long advocated, eclipses are rare and powerful moments, best tuned into through meditation and reflection. A purified central channel, the Sushumna, can open within one’s subtle body to unify wisdom and compassion to provide clarity, insight and realisation. But not everyone can handle this fast rip in the fabric of space-time and the ensuing potential cosmic opening to spirit; so some people can be negatively affected. So be aware how this is also a Mercury Retrograde Solar Eclipse when the mind, as well as airlines and all forms of travel, can play tricks – which is another reason to make every effort to remain calm and patient, centred and balanced, with self as well as others.

With eclipses now taking place in powerful Scorpio, a sign of transformation and regeneration, endings and beginnings, Scorpionic renewal is through the ability to delve into previously hidden places, ideas, or thoughts, to sexually, psychically and emotionally heal. Working multi-dimensionally: outer, Inner & Secret (mundane/earth, personal/psycho-anatomical & spiritual), check where this transformational 22 degree Scorpio lies in your horoscope and see what-how-where this profound union of Sun & Moon in Scorpio is activating for you personally.

By honing into the wounded/darkest part of self (physical, intellectual or spiritual) we can retrieve the new light of day that sheds light, so that one magically emerges self-aware: greater, stronger and smarter. This eclipse intensifies Scorpio’s laser-like perception which cuts to the quick to release the outmoded or outworn, so that one is literally reborn and revitalised, able to move ahead with a generous heart in all relationships.

NOW is the time to transform _(♥)_

Lha Bab Düchen 2012 __/❤\__ Buddha descent from the realms of the 33

November 6th ~ Lha Bab Düchen __/❤\__

Buddha’s descent from the pure realms of the Deva’s is celebrated, to honour the kindness Buddha repaid to his mother.

As one of the four main days of the Buddhist calendar, this is a karma multiplied day x 10 million.

During this last quarter Moon, when the Sun is in Scorpio and the Moon in regal Leo, energy is transformational, intense and dramatic; emotions run deep in the light of self-consciousness.

November 6th 2012 is also the day when Mercury, planet of healing and communication, goes into retrograde motion, signalling how important it is to observe the mind, as well as watch what we say. While Mercury is currently in optimistic Sagittarius, this particular retrograde period takes places during ‘eclipse season’; there will be many a turning point as healing Mercury retreats back into secretive Scorpio to re-do, re-work, re-think powerful alliances before stationing to go forward November 27th.

Be prepared. Create good karma and generate merit (now and always). The solar eclipse is in a week’s time on November 13th, coinciding with a SuperMoon.

If you would like to know how this transformational time constellates your own personal horoscope, with an ASTROLOGY READING please either check blog for rates, or contact me personally.
Thank you _/❤\_

Blessings & Love on this very holy day _/❤\_
