Disseminating Moon Phase: share, give feedback

Moon in Aquarius

Ruling Mahavidya: Bagala (The Paralyzer, The Storm-Calmer)

Skill: adjust to change

Negative Imprint: arrogance; feeling unworthy and out of place

Positive Imprint: humility; acknowledging everyone’s place and level of understanding

By the time this report goes up, the Moon will already have contacted the Black Moon (by opposition in astrological terms) for the month. This is a nice “pass” for us, especially since we’ve been under sustained energetic rains from the Sun, the Galactic Center, and Mercury and Neptune’s retrogrades.

Those with the Sun or Black Moon in Leo or Aquarius (or anyone having a Black Moon transit to one of their planets) are more likely to have conditions and events develop today and tomorrow which facilitate a shedding of the old as the new is revealing. The Black Moon rules the cycle of growth, which is a symbolic process of “death” and “rebirth.” Since the Black Moon is in Leo, issues with changes of all kinds – change to the order, arrangement, status, routine, power structure, power levels, life path – abound. To some degree, these themes are in play for everyone today and tomorrow.

At the core, people want to feel like they matter today. We want to feel like we have a place in the grand scheme of things. We want to be acknowledged. We keenly feel any sort of abandonment. In actuality, what solves any quandaries that develop today is our own acknowledgement of ourselves. We attach to the fact that everyone has a part to play and each are necessary and important. This recognition is part of the energetic process that is going on this month that has more of our true selves coming forward, more of our true selves showing up.

In kind, acknowledging others goes a long way today.

Even though today’s energy has things coming forward and coming to light, it is not a day to push things. Our roots with the planet Gaia-Sophia are being reinforced and strengthened. This means we are growing. Our “beings” or energetic fields are growing. Pushing will only cause frustration.

Over the weekend, the Full Moon revealed and illuminated things. We gained wisdom. Now, in the natural order of things, the Disseminating Moon phase begins. This is the time when communication is highlighted. Disseminating Moon phase is the time when we share our thoughts, feelings, and ideas with others (and the Universe, Spirit, Sophia – however you view it) and receive feedback. We also listen to others and give feedback. The act of listening to others often provides solutions, insights, and answers we seek. Disseminating phase engages our sense of hearing. It’s a talkative time. We need to keep in mind that communications are under stress with Mercury retrograde at the degree of “a cat arguing with a mouse.” Communications need to be productive, not just a debate. We stay true when we communicate respectfully. No one has to take on board anything that doesn’t resonate for them.

Tomorrow, Gaia Sophia, the divine being embodied as our planet, has an energetic homecoming – a reunion – and we are invited. The Earth will be in conjunction with the Galactic Center, her home, tomorrow at high noon EST. To celebrate, a group meditation is planned. The purpose of this meditation is to strengthen alliance between Sophia, the Sun, humanity, and the galaxy. It’s good for the energetics of everything.

Oracle Report meditations are never dogmatic with strict rules because we uphold the principle of freedom. Modify these guidelines with your own touches and preferences. It only makes the endeavor more beautiful. And if you cannot join at the specified time, you can hitch on at any time later, since the wave will already be in place. Here are the general guidelines:

Sophia-Galactic Center Meditation – Tuesday, June 17 at noon EST/ 4:00 pm UTC (and anytime thereafter):

  1. Put in place your personal protection (Medicine Wheel of Protection, surround yourself in a pillar of light, etc.)
  2. Go outside if possible. Feel your connection with the Earth, Gaia Sophia. The latitude and longitude coordinates of where you are is where you are anchored in the grid of earth. In your minds eye, pull the energy up from the Earth and through your body, out through the top of your head, and launch it toward the sky. Aim like Sagittarius, the Archer. The energy is going to 26 Sagittarius 22 in the sky – Sophia’s home and our second home. Say “home.” Feel home.
  3. Allow the inflow back from the Galactic Center, down through your head, down through your body, and back into the Earth. This completes the circuit.
  4. Do something celebratory and make a day of it as best you can. The expansion of consciousness that comes from aligning and allying with our First Home (the Earth) and our Second Home (the Galactic Center) happens one day each year. Open up to receiving.

NorthPoint Astrology Journal June 16 to 22, 2014 Pam Younghans

Today‘s photo: Auroras over Lake Minnewanka, Alberta, Canada, on June 8, 2014 (photo by William Lefort, posted onSpaceWeather.com)

MANY THANKS to everyone who signed up for last week’s teleclass! We had record numbers attending, and from all over the world, which was both fun and very exciting. I hope all who participated gained some insights that will assist you in the months ahead.

If you missed the class and would like to purchase the audio replay and a copy of the slideshow, that window is still open! Just send me an email with “Teleclass Replay” in the subject line, and we’ll make arrangements. (pam)

LIFE CONTINUES to feel a bit blurry around the edges this week. Neptune has just begun its retrograde (backward) phase, so the planet’s dreamlike effects are still strong. And retrograde Mercury is a focal point of the coming week as well, adding to the sense that nothing is quite real in the way that we normally expect it to be.

Mercury re-enters Gemini on Tuesday, and then passes by the Sun on Thursday, right before the Sun leaves Gemini and enters Cancer. This emphasis on the themes of Gemini tell us that it’s an important week to rethink our usual ways of communicating. We will want to pay especially close attention to being clear in our intentions and in our words. Miscommunications at this time are likely to reflect a lack of clarity we’re feeling internally about the subject at hand.

By the time Mercury turns direct again on July 1, it will be back at the degree it originally crossed on May 22. This means we may also benefit from reviewing the past three weeks of our experience (as much as we can remember!) and see if there are some things we would change, given the chance for a “re-do.”

CHIRON joins the group of retrograde planets this week, scheduled to station on Friday and then go backward in Pisces until November 23. Chiron’s retrograde phase is an opportunity for us to go more deeply into a spiritual healing process, especially with regards to our ability to trust the universe and to accept the unfolding of our lives even when our choices or outcomes are not yet defined.

The issues of boundaries and control are also a part of Chiron’s work in Pisces. The twelfth sign is known for compassion, understanding, and receptivity — qualities which, when taken too far, can become martyrdom, servitude, and a need to bring everything into alignment with one’s personal vision of what would be ideal. With Chiron’s station this week, we are working with these polarities, and starting to release unhealthy patterns in these areas.

THE MOST CELEBRATED planetary event this week is, of course, the June Solstice, when the Sun enters Cancer. This solstice marks the beginning of summer in the Northern Hemisphere, and the beginning of winter in the Southern.

A chart drawn for the exact time of the solstice is said to be the “birth chart” for the next three months in our experience, until the next season is born on the September Equinox. The solstice chart shows the Sun aligned with retrograde Mercury, so we will have opportunities over the next three months to do some important realigning of our goals and intentions, based on the inner work we will do.

THE SOLSTICE CHART also shows Mars, Pluto and Uranus forming a cardinal “T-square” configuration. Our grand cross that was strongest in April has lost one of its cornerstones, now that Jupiter has moved out of range.

A T-square is an unstable relationship formed between three planets, one that requires self-awareness and a good attention to staying in balance. Here’s a slightly abridged version of astrologer Bil Tierney’s writings on the effects of a cardinal T-square with Pluto at the apex (90 degrees away from Uranus and Mars):

“Apex Pluto indicates we are intensely self-driven, and may not easily integrate with others. We may reject assistance and support out of fear of losing control of the situation. We are able to quickly gather and activate our power reserves as needed in situations that demand immediate, decisive reactions.”

THERE IS GREAT POWER in this configuration, but we will need to be very aware of ways in which we carry a chip on our shoulders, or resist cooperating with others. Any patterns that we carry of resentment and resistance will likely be very clearly reflected to us in the mirror of our experience.

In other words, this coming season is an exceptionally powerful time to do release work on those patterns of fear that manifest in power struggles and confrontations. And just think how sparkly clean — and ready for new beginnings — we will be after this release process!

Video: Mass Pro-Russian, Anti-Fascist March in #Kharkov, #Ukraine

Thank you Lada!
American news is portraying Russia as the aggressor and our terrible out of control enemy. But in reality the behind the scenes machinations of our black ops/CIA etc are deeply involved in creating endless provocation.

The oligarchs want us distracted, our young men and women crippled and maimed in these constant pointless created wars first to enrich them ever more with more stolen resources that our soldiers die to give them (which is so wrong it makes my blood boil) and second to prevent us here in America from removing fascism and corruption from our own government.

Don’t believe corporate media-not Fox, CNN, or any so called news media owned by corporations or indirectly controlled (Tampa Bay Times is a good example of a paper carefully protected by its founder to be non corporate but now utterly controlled by it’s advertising).

I find it ludicrous that violations of international law are cheered and accepted when we instigate them either ourselves or thru our installed puppet governments but loudly decried when anyone else does them.

The law is only effective if EVERYONE follows it.

Futurist Trendcast

Mass pro-Russian, anti-fascist, anti-Kiev junta, march in the second largest city of Ukraine, #Kharkov (former capital of Ukraine). Demonstrators, many women, marched to the Russian consulate, chanting: “Kharkov is a Russian city,” “Novorossia,” “Kharkov, rise up,” “Fascism won’t pass,” ‘Kharkov against Kiev junta,” “Poroshenko is fascist,” “Donbass, we are with you,” “Slavyansk – a hero,” and “Russia.” This comes on the heels of the Kiev junta’s bombing of Donbass with UN banned chemical weapon – white phosphorus, and violent attack by Ukraine extremists on the Russian embassy in Kiev. See related: Breaking! Ukraine Mob Vandalises Russian Embassy in Kiev.

Note, in the past couple of months, the people of Kharkov were being actively intimidated by the Kiev junta authorities – activists kidnapped and killed, people’s jobs and businesses threatened. This is why the protests in Kharkov and nearby industrial city of Dnepropetrovsk had seemingly died down. However, the latest events made…
