Opening to Great Mystery

July 14 to 25, 2012

Dear Friends,

Once again, a remarkable lineup of astrological aspects has occurred within 48 hours. Uranus stationed retrograde (Friday morning) Saturn squared the Sun (Saturday morning) Mercury stationed retrograde (Saturday night).

This morning (Sunday) Venus was conjunct the crescent Moon, representing the first gate the Goddess Inanna passes through on her descent into the Underworld–the moment where she removes her crown.

Taken cumulatively, we are all invited to “blow the top off” of our minds, to surrender our old ways of knowing, of thinking, of relating to the big picture. We are invited to open to awareness that is much bigger, much more expansive–yet at the same time centered and grounded from the heart and Earth knowing.

Extraordinary intuitive insight is available to us now, with Uranus in the fire sign of Aries, and Mercury in the fire sign of Leo, both moving very slowly right now, so close to their exact retrograde station; felt powerfully as an intensified recalibration of our individual perceptions (Mercury), as well as Collective Consciousness (Uranus).

This morning I received an intuitive insight as I meditated under the radiant spectacle of Venus, Jupiter, the Crescent Moon and Aldebaran all lined up beautifully above the Sandia Mountains. I gave gratitude to the Earth Mama and as I did, I felt the falling away of an old belief about her true nature. I realized I had been projecting old, inaccurate beliefs about Cancer/Mother onto her.

I’d been seeing her as martyr, victim, patiently enduring the onslaught of human foolishness like the long-suffering archetype for Mother promoted by the Christian Church for centuries. I’ve long seen the damage this idealized projection can do to a woman when she is expected to have no sense of self, to be endlessly giving.

It is not okay for her to express rage, to enjoy sexual pleasure, or to take up too much space. Most of all, it is not okay for her to change or evolve. Somehow I’d projected that concept onto Earth as Mother.

This morning I received a newsflash from the heavens (that’s how Uranus speaks to us!) that the Earth Mama, like us, is experiencing profound transformation, and accelerated evolutionary development.

Of course I knew that, but I hadn’t yet emotionally engaged with that perspective. Now I am experiencing Earth Mama as this gorgeous, sensual, profoundly creative, responsive, conscious, and adaptable entity. We are part of her, and can choose to consciously evolve together.

Much love, many blessings,
