Blessings all – am on pilgrimage so I’ll keep this quick. The Sun’s conjunction with the Galactic Center (watch the next 12-24 hours) , quite literally, points us to the roads, paths, teachers, paradigms, travels and philosophies (or ‘big ideas’) that help us align with our sense of who we are, and what that means within the cosmos. Also a phenomenal time for astrology or tarot readings, or acts of structured spiritual facilitation from a mentor or more experienced Hierophant-like figure (as in the Tarot). Some of you will be drawn to great truths and teachers, and others will be drawn to the opposite. Whether you fall for the false prophet, or discover a true guide is part of the experience, and the challenge of this conjunction.
The Sun is squared the Moon at this time, making it an interesting interplay of energies from different levels of consciousness. Whilst the rational mind and conscious focus of the self looks to the Path, the deeper Spirit looks to places that cannot be comprehended or defined, irrespective of experience, wisdom, or other claims to authority and knowledge. It represents the potential clash between established ‘ways of knowing’ and deeper spiritual movements that exist outside of tradition, time and space. Much like the way the phrase ‘half-moon’, or when the Sun and Moon were at square angles to one another, kept popping up on my travels – prompting me to look at the sky-charts 🙂
The Moon is also conjunct the South Node, which represents the kinds of energies that we have some prior access, potentially mastery of. At this time, we’re all drinking from the deeper waters of Spirit as we begin to re-work karmic contracts, explore previous life-cycles and/or to begin to relate to the concept of Forrnlessness. Equally, it represents the place where we are most likely to become caught up in past karmic dynamics, particularly ones which trigger a deep chord with our own emotional insecurities. The past, our ancestral heritage, our karmic inheritances – all of these can be gifts that form the foundation for our futures – they can just as easily become burdens that inhibit us from exploring the new. Which side of the Pisces Moon-South Node conjunction you explore, is, at the deepest levels, a choice that is in your hands.
The Sun, Galactic Center, Moon and South Node all aspect the North Node in Virgo, forming the Mutable T-Square. The North Node represents our direction of greatest karmic / spiritual growth at this time. These are the areas in our lives which we need to pay greater heed to. They represent areas of challenge, but equally, possibilities for growth and new beginnings. Within this T-Square, the North Node asks us to take the spiritual impulses / visions / mystical experiences of Pisces, and Sagittarius’ need for a structured, formalized Path – and to reflect upon the two with respect to the lessons of Virgo. Here the North Node asks us how we take these different types or levels of information and put them into a Material, Embodied, Physical Form of Service and Healing.
Some of you will link this back to the Priestess Traditions, Yoni/Shakti Worship, or simply a deeper spiritual appreciation of the Womb Center (in all Beings). Others will answer the question by looking at the structure of their daily lives, the rituals or habits that make up the nuts and bolts of their day – and to change them accordingly. Some will discover new paths of healing and discovering wellness, seeing Mind-Body-Spirit as an integrated whole.
And, there will of course be those who take this energy to re-fuel puritanical judgments upon the Path of the Feminine, Sacred Sexuality, the Priestess Traditions and so on – critiquing it in terms of what is ‘pure’, ‘sacred’ and – of course – ‘virginal’. Whilst the Goddess Movement has sought to re-claim these terms and older spiritual traditions associated with them, much of the planet still lives in a different understanding of reality. So, bear in mind that everyone will respond to this energy in the way that their consciousness is best able to do so.
But – Getting back to the larger picture ..
There are many possibilities as to how this Nodal challenge is manifested. The key question is: What do I do with all this information, and how can I use it to help/heal myself and others?
Those of you with bodies near 26-28 Gemini will experience this as a Grand Mutable Cross. That roughly corresponds to those of you with birthdays between June 17-19.
So, keep your eyes open my friends 🙂 This is a powerful prelude to the upcoming Solstice and Cancer Full Moon! 🙂
Blessings to All,
