By now you have all successfully passed through the turbulent straits of this morning’s Cancer Full Moon. Hope you had a good breakfast because the waters are going to stay rocky for a few days.
The Wake of these times is wide.
The Cardinal Cross* that included that powerful moon this morning
*the perfect cross of 4 planets in the cardinal, aka seasonal signs, of Aries (spring), Cancer (summer), Libra (fall) & Capricorn (winter) ~ (Moon in Cancer, Jupiter in Libra, Uranus in Aries & Sun in Capricorn)
was the ignition of a hot wave of rebellion, sexual transformation, within & without, & overwhelming desire of the soul for freedom that will carry us through to the end of next September. Considering the current state of affairs on the planet right now, I am sure many of you are muttering some version of Thank God.
Thank God, indeed.
We have been given a huge opportunity to surf this massive wave of change & to ride it, hopefully synchronously & powerfully together.
Together being the operative term.
Now, more than ever before we need to be together, in love, on all levels. And although you know I believe Only Love is Real . . . . I also believe that Love is Difficult.
No, not always. But when a crisis or several are in play, & the desire for sexual & spiritual expression & authenticity are ignited, the need for communication in Love is paramount.
And in order to balance love, freedom, spirit, rock & roll & sex . . . You gotta be centered.
A few days before the Full Moon (ooops, whaaaa, that was just this morninggggggg) Mercury went direct after being retrograde through the holidays (December 19 ~ January 8).
There are two options after a Mercury Retrograde:
~ do nothing (I’m tired)
~ or reassess, readjust plans & goals & move forward (I can do this)
It is best to be open-minded in this planning. If you think you have all the intel, especially if you think you are one of the only people who has the intel, it’s time for a little pause (or a lot), some self reflection. One of the keys to this transition is to realize that every single person you are dealing with, from your lover to the guy in the car that just cut you off, is doing the same deep internal work AND it probably has nothing to do with you.
Yep, even your beloved’s inner landscape doesn’t include you all the time.
It’s ok. Let it go. It will give you more room to be yourself.
Another moment of gratitude. On my knees before the Jupiter/Uranus opposition, strong now (right in the middle of the Grand Cross this morning/today with the Full Moon) & in & out of play through October of this year
I will repeat: Love is at the middle of the revolution.
The Aries/Libra axis at play here is the very definition of Love ~ do I put myself first or do I put the collaboration with the other, at the highest meaning of that collaboration, first?
The answer is both.
A riddle: In what realms are You & the Lover one?
Answer: Sex & Spirit.
Once again, this is the arena for revolution. It is unfortunate that the skills to participate in these arenas are rarely innate. Oh no, correction, they were potentially innate at birth when we parted the veil between dimension, perfectly one with every other member of humanity. For most of us, the road since birth has been one of obfuscation & denial of this birthright, mostly by others who had been equally denied (i.e. our parents, their parents, & their parents before them ~ compassion, compassion, forgiveness).
Many of you are already feeling the need for this healing & have taken steps to unform these cultural realities & peel away layers to find your original self. In the face of the current rigors, I am encouraging, in addition to your other practices, a simple meditation to tonify your Second Chakra, the Sex Chakra, all on your own.
Maybe not as much fun as working it out with someone else, but a lot easier to keep your focus. The payoff will be great, I promise.
It is important here to understand the relationship between The Second (Sex) Chakra & The Sixth (Third Eye) Chakra.
This Sexual/Spiritual landscape is different for each of us, particularly depending on our gender identification. On the more feminine end of the spectrum, the 2nd Chakra works more intuitively. Those with a more feminine reality literally hold the doorway between life & death within our bodies. This threshold works as a magnet, drawing in energies & sensations. The more powerfully identified someone is with the feminine, the bigger the magnet. Sometimes it becomes hard to differentiate, whose sensation & energy is whose.
On the more masculine end of the sexual field, the emphasis is on processing, creating, manifesting something with this incredible electric energy. Sometimes this innate desire to collect & build
moves extremely quickly, particularly when protection & stability are at risk (like, um, NOW). This sense of urgency can lack finesse or subtlety.
I am sure this is all familiar, though gender assignation is obviously far more illusive than just the physicality of our bodies.
That said, the boot camp for today, in order to begin to bring
this beautiful energy into the top form necessary for these times, involves an intentional movement of Second Chakra energies
up into the Spiritual intuitive center of the Sixth (Third Eye) Chakra,
where that deep connection to another has the ability to grow in a more neutral, sophisticated, non-judgmental perspective.
You can still enjoy the body of course.
Actually the travel up the center line of the body, either the spine, central channel or chakra energy centers, is highly pleasureable.
For now, keep the intention. Keep your focus.
You can just begin practicing by imagining arousal & connection, locating it in your belly, (place your hands either on your belly or in front, parted about 5 inches apart) & playfully, with a spark of joy (again imagine if you are not feeling it), & then move the energy upward. Spend some time cultivating & enjoying the energy at your Third Eye too.
There are many more ways to cultivate this skill. Feel free to write me. I would be happy to be your guide. Who knew that getting through the needle eye of the Kali Yuga would be so intriguing?
