First Quarter Moon Phase: step out, take action

Moon in Sagittarius

Ruling Wisdom Goddess: Bhairavi (The Fierce One)

Skill: choose wisely according to your heart’s desire

Negative Imprint: egocentricity, division, lack of commitment, indecision, emotional swings

Positive Imprint: deserving, connection with others, commitment, emotional balance

What will we choose today? We find ourselves at a point where we need to make a decision or decide whether to commit to something or not. If this does not show up in situations with other people, it will show up for inner contemplation. If your choice takes you in another direction, away from someone or something important to you, remember that truly we are never separated. We are entitled to and deserving of choosing that which is in our highest and best interests.

Much of this energy relates to romantic relationships and commitments (or lack of commitment). Venus, Eris, and the North Node are in an astrological T-square formation. Venus = relationships, Eris = rebirth, and the North Node = destiny. Relationships are destined for rebirth today. This is particularly true of love triangles. We are strongly motivated toward connection, companionship, and friendship, seeking fulfillment of our hopes, wishes, and dreams.

With this, if we are on the fence about something, by day’s end we may find that we are no longer in conflict. This month’s energy brings scenarios where we are at a tipping point or teetering on the edge, and this theme is strong today. Again, we are entitled to and deserving of choosing that which is in our highest and best interests.

This energy also brings “extremes” and swinging between extremes. We aim for moderation, taking responsibility for our own feelings and speaking our mind when needed. Don’t be afraid to dig deeply. Remember that as part of the Second Renaissance that is birthing, we are experiencing the expanding and energizing of deep and meaningful changes and corrections that heal, transform, and liberate us.

Masks, appearances, and social status are dominant themes all month long, but today they can take on too much importance – swinging into the extreme. Fakeness gets on our nerves more than usual. Though people are inclined to parade around today, we are not impressed.

We are, however, distinctly impressed by that which comes from the heart. And it’s easy to see it today. The Mahavidya ruling this lunar month is Bhairavi. Bhairavi is the aspect of the great goddess Gaia Sophia who calls to our hearts. She calls forth the hero/heroine inside each of us. She speaks to us today, asking us to choose according to our heart’s desire. But she is called the Fierce One for a reason. She is relentless. She inspires ferocity from the fires of the heart. She helps us gain confidence and dissolve our fears. She helps us embrace the new and the unknown. She helps us free ourselves to go beyond the material world. For Bhairavi, knowledge is paramount.

For us, knowledge is paramount as well. It’s the job of the wise owls to seek wisdom. Embrace your nature today. You are a unique and powerful being with the ability to co-create a dream of life with the planet herself. All of this is of our choosing. And today we choose wisely. We remember that this month our mission is to take our place in the ring of singing stones and bridge the chaos. Our song is the mutual commitment to raise the consciousness of humanity out of captivity. This song comes straight from our hearts. We are all in tune and the pitch is perfect. Let’s sing it loudly today.

And, who knows? Sabaoth the Sun just may chime in.

(Many thanks to Alexandra at GalacticConnection.com for inviting me on her radio show yesterday. If you missed it, you can listen here on the homepage ofwww.oraclereport.com. Also, the Medicine Wheel of Protection is now outlined on theLearn page.)

New Post on High Heart Life | Denise le Fey

Wow!

If you are a lightworker, starseed, or have spent much time working toward ascension for yourself and the Earth- you will probably want to read Denise’s latest post.

I’ve long been aware that Denise has developed a deep level of skill in discerning and clarifying energetic realities and events and their meanings and effects on us.

She often has very similar experiences to my own-but I don’t always understand very clearly until after I read her discussion of them.

I imagine this may be true for some of you as well. We each have developed different skills, abilities and areas of interest that we can contribute to the collective. It is very inspiring to me reading Denise, Aisha, Brenda and others who help us perceive and understand the changes so much more clearly than we might each do separately.

Aside from the obvious benefit of their wisdom itself, it reminds me to keep working on my own skills and abilities that can also help others. Instead of feeling overwhelmed by the vastness of all that still needs doing, I’m inspired by the possibilities when so many of us work together.

As always, I post this with gratitude to Denise for all of her work, and to each of you too for walking your paths and not giving up.
Blessings,
ohnwentsya

Shift to August & Severity of August 4, 2014

by Denise

Team Light Shutting Down most of Team Dark’s Timelines As is usually the case, the energies scream a bit louder and more intensely every time we transition from one month and enter the next one. Nothing new here, except that this shift into August 1st, 2014 was extra intense. Now that I’ve said that I’m […]
