I wasn't sure if this should be posted here or in Rituals but it is Astrology based so here it is...
These are mighty times you've chosen to be alive in. Your truth is
required in the Great Unmasking of Souls. Stories of lack, urge for control,
disguises you've worn so long that you forgot you had them on; places you're
trapped in there have to come up now to be cleared at this critical gateway of
the ages. Another being lives inside the dull trapped one, a silvery-blue
radiance that shines brighter when the way ahead is uncertain and we need
to steer by inner light.
Jupiter, Alpha-Omega, and Neptune are now linked in the same degree of
Aquarius, the most important celestial event in the millennium so far. This
triple conjunction is our age's Star of Bethlehem, heralding the coming of
the new. In this case the new is a long-foreseen Age of Human Liberation, Age
of Aquarius. For centuries astrologers have been predicting this time as
the great pivot point of humanity, the great turning from all-that-was to
all-that-should be, the slow, maddening, inexorable crawl of our species
from muck to enlightenment.
Whatever is in the way of igniting your fullest participation in this
Choice Point of the ages, it is bound to come up now, and keep coming up until
you witness your old fears as a karmic role you chose to play. Your
crippling self-limits, the nagging critical voice in your head, your deepest
demons and most dangerous dupes is a Friend you invited onto the Karmic Stage
long ago. That role is a persona you took on in order to act out the shadow
you've wrestled with through the ages.
Deeper than those karmic dudes (or dudettes) is another part of you,
dormant in recent centuries, the One Who Radiates Truth, and that one is being
ignited by this triple conjunction.
With so many of the world's stories boiling off now like the dross of an
oceanic essential oil, evaporating into the shared atmosphere, our
alchemical mix reverses. Instead of being largely surface and slightly core, we
become more essence and less artifice. Regardless of your birth sign, the
Aquarian in you-the future being in you that your old self was an early
prototype of, gets the go-ahead to come out, come out wherever you are. And even
more, to come in, come in, come all the way in, to merge the scope of our
lives with the power of the soul.
Jupiter rules our third eye, enabling us to see clairvoyantly, beyond the
confines of the way things appear, into the way things are. When our vision
is caught in the karmic filter of the past we get caught in the illusion
of separateness. Seen through that filter we fail to ignite our full
potential. We get snared in the ten thousandth replay of an old karmic melodrama.
When we dissolve that filter with the galactic laser beam of our third
eye, (being amped up now by this threeway Jupiter blast) we recognize the role
each thing plays in a grand design. Nothing is separate, not even
ourselves. All is connected. Dowsed by this powerful celestial event, old stories
have to change or die. Old structures fail. Old stories give way to deeper
stories of the soul that were always hidden within them.
Is it any wonder tales of the previous age, the Age of Pisces (which began
with Christ) are fighting for dear life? Tales of "My God is bigger than
your God,"? or "you and your kind are different than us and must be feared,"
These three planets igniting Aquarius are freeing the dream of our species
which has been sleeping for so long. The numbness is wearing off. The two
thousand year Age of the Fishes is ending. A new star is rising in the
east. We are gathering on a River of Time, where history unravels and the soul
opens. Whatever is barring your entry into the bright future is bound to
come up. Rumors of the new always threaten the old.
But if you dig down deeper than distortion you hit the pool of sparks;
Aquarian knowingness that even the greatest darkness doesn't last forever,
even the oldest stories of hate have an ending, and we're winging into a new
corner of space where dreamers are needed to dream up a new world mythology.
Visionaries, wizards, priestesses, magicians, shamans, storytellers,
time-travelers, heroes, bards, and fools are much-needed now. Join us by
freeing yourself to creatively reimagine who you are and what great soul gift you
have to offer at the turning of the ages.
Who are you really? What are you here to do? How much longer are you going
The full moon in Sagittarius at 2:12 PM Eastern on Sunday, June 7, will
sextile the Triple Conjunction in Aquarius, lending Sag fire power to
Aquarian air power. At this time a net of energy is thrusting out through inner
and outer space. This is one of those times when the higher design of the
mind fits the scope of your personal creativity. The go-ahead is being given
to all projects and designs that truly serve the living future. To get with
this go-ahead you may have to release something of the past, some life
that no longer fits, but it's worth it. If you can't yet feel the truth of any
of this, if, in fact, your life seems to be everything but what I'm
describing, that's because this energy net is being woven in a subtle realm that
you haven't become aware of yet. Years from now when you look back at this
time, though, you may see more clearly the beginning of the new.
On Monday, June 22 at 3:35 PM Eastern, the New Moon in early Cancer comes
close on the heels of Summer Solstice. On this same day both Venus and
Mars trine Saturn, which lessons in personal power and magnetism. This second
degree of Cancer is a shamanic degree, meaning that the very greatest
teaching you have to offer others demands that you put yourself through the same
challenge. The best intention to set for this moon-month beginning today
is to claim the fullness of your trials and tests, to no longer give power
away by denying the full scope of what you're being put through in order to
become the wisdom you will one day have to offer others.
Celebrate the Dawning of the Age of Aquarius!
2012: Ignition Point Ritual
SUGGESTIONS TO DEEPEN OUR CONNECTION THROUGH THIS RITUAL OPENING
Prepare an altar with 12 meaningful objects of your choice (stones,
flowers, tarot cards, tobacco, etc-may represent the 12 signs of the zodiac). If
possible, place a quartz crystal in each of the four directions, and 3
candles in the circle to represent the 3 conjunct planets. Tune in.....
Each of us has precious practices, devotions and meaningful means by which
we connect with spirit and feed ourselves, the earth and the collective.
Express your 'being' in whatever way you are led ...and tune in and listen
with all of your senses.
Contemplate. Feel. Open. What's present?
When you are moved to end your ceremony, consider clapping your hands
loudly (or whatever method suits you) to release the energy and offer it to all
beings for the highest healing and good..
Coool. I just sent my novel to Llewellyn this weekend after a lucid dream with a lot of these elements. I thought the time might be right after the dream. I guess sometimes we sense energies through our dreaming mind when our waking mind isn't even aware.
