NEW AUDIO REPORT August 22, 2014 –

“Holding the Line: Virgo 2014 Cycle”

Full Moon Phase: realization

Moon in Aries

Ruling Mahavidya: Shodashi (Goddess Who Fulfills Highest Desire) and Matangi (Goddess of the Wind)

Skill: keep it simple, sweetie

Negative Imprint: super-competitive, conflict, conflict with self, dull routine, insensitivity, self-minimization, immaturity, jealousy

Positive Imprint: wisdom, giving and receiving, imagination, wonderment, dreams, reward, charms, charming

As the supermoon continues, lightning strikes to re-ignite and illuminate paths of destiny – some being long-forgotten paths. An ancient part of ourselves that lies deep within responds to a “stirring” within the energy.

Do you remember the joy of being pulled in a wagon or pushed in a wheelbarrow? If the ride is fast, it can be a little scary because someone else is essentially in control of what happens to us. But at the same time, it can be fun. This month’s energy is like this, except we are driven by a higher spiritual force.

The changes can be shocking, especially if what is happening is a dramatic change.

Today’s energy brings out streaks of competition and a stances of dominance. Internal struggles of power and external struggles of power of all kinds are being waged. If you are facing yourself and struggling, surrender to the flow and accept the wisdom that is emerging.

The wisdom within the Sabian symbols today tells us that simplicity and imagination are the most effective ways to navigate circumstances. Repeating the phrase, “I release to simplicity and imagination” will switch your focus and bring relief.

The Wisdom Goddess Shodashi teaches the elegance of simplicity. She teaches us about the power of simplicity to be far-ranging. In a way it’s similar to how a lower-frequency wave travels father. In this sense, “lower” does not mean “lesser.” Shodashi works with waves and the force of her teaching comes in waves. Today is one of those days of waves.

To simplify, today’s energy carries us along a course that aligns us toward the highest possibilities of our soul’s expression and mission. Let’s engage our imaginations and go along for the ride!

(Note: A good way to engage the imagination is to connect with the inner child. Thinking back to what you liked to do as a child often brings insight and solutions to many things, even emotional issues. Coloring mandalas is a good technique to kickstart the process.
