Dark Moon Dark Sun ~ Winter Solstice 2014

Shortest day and longest night is fast approaching. At the same time the Moon cycle is coming to a close, compounding long shadow days and the need to allow subconscious thoughts, feelings and dreams to bubble up to the surface before being filtered by the light of consciousness.
Until the Winter Solstice (21st Dec 23:03GMT ), swiftly followed by the New Capricorn Moon (22nd Dec 001:25gmt ) - with both markers occurring around midnight Universal Time, this closing part of the year is also one of the year’s darkest periods. Before solar standstill, and like the animals hibernating, it is now time to relax (as best one can in the often hectic pre-xmas whirl). During these next few days the receptive and feminine Yin chi flows deeply and strong (in the northern hemisphere). Within this dark space the urge to turn inwards, in order to recoup and revive, is an innate part of our natural cycle. It is also a time of major personal initiation into our own internal light, teaching to kindle the light which resides in our heart. Soul and Spirit illuminating faith and trust, hope and compassion, qualities for the SOLstice blessings to take forward into the New Year – and beyond.

"Now it is of the utmost importance to remember that the external search for fulfillment through our complex patterns of hatred, love, and attachment is a lost cause. Fulfillment is attained through pausing and turning inwards." ~ Lama Tsultrum Alione ~

15th December ~> Last Quarter Virgo Moon square Sagittarius Sun

☼ ☾ With today’s lunar emphasis upon the healing qualities of the Divine Feminine, honouring the Great Mother liberator can free us from fear and protect from suffering. All the while, the generous Sagittarian Sun inspires one to remain confident and optimistic, to know that rainbows and miracles do happen, and to encourage an open mind as the means to a kind and open heart. 

♅⚥ ♇ Tomorrow, the 16th, sees the 6th of 7 exact squares between generational planets Uranus and Pluto, accenting a particularly long struggle for freedom within this powerful period of collective transformation.  This configuration which began 2012, demands the kind of change where altruism and lucidity can flourish, where all beings are nurtured with an awareness of their authentic presence.

The Sacred Goddess (within) protects from having the wrong view during challenging times, helping to retain a balanced mind that frees from harmful negative emotions.  And as we turn towards Solstice with a New Capricorn Moon on the 22nd, when the New Light King is born (in the Northern Hemisphere), it is the unconditional love of the glorious Goddess who prepares to act and tender compassionate healing, even in our darkest hours. So follow Tara's lead and take care of yourself and others as a mother would a child, and enjoy the blessings from the great Goddess.

While her left leg is folded in the contemplative position, her right leg is outstretched, ready to spring into action. Green Tara’s left hand is in the refuge-granting mudra (gesture); her right hand makes the boon-granting [giving] gesture. In her hands she also holds closed blue lotuses (utpalas), which symbolize purity and power.”

☆ •°*☾ ◯☽ *°•.☆ 5th-6th-7th December _/\_
The Full Moon is rising in Gemini, opposite Sagittarian Sun - with the sign of the Archer aiming directly at the Great Attractor, the centre of our home Galactic supercluster, called Laniakea ‘Immeasurable Heaven’. This rare celestial alignment (every 19 years) suggests one takes aim for the next couple of days and hold focus upon the great convergence of truth, love, and our innate, light-radiating wisdom. Because the Sagittarian ruler who encourages one to see the bigger picture with greater clarity, the great Cosmic Guru, Jupiter, is now stationed to go retrograde immediately after the Full Moon (on Monday the 8th); and cautious Saturn is about to change signs from Scorpio into Jupiter’s sign, Sagittarius (on Xmas Eve), when the Lord of Karma gives lessons in fidelity and freedom; it suggests that now is not the time to move rashly, but to focus upon what pleases, and to turn one’s wisdom eye towards the rejuvenating healing power of light, compassion and love. Even if prepared to relinquish attachment and desire and renounce all: goal, aim and object, only a super-realised super-heroic spiritual warrior with nothing to lose, but perhaps heart and soul, would now leap into the unknown without taking time to now relish the immense infinite joy of life’s great multi-dimensional interconnected adventure.

Warning: Be careful what you concentrate upon during this Full Moon: it might just show you how loving kindness actually works for the benefit of all
