YESTERDAY’S NEW MOON (on Saturday, April 18) was in Aries, establishing this lunar cycle as a time when we can begin anew, and supporting us with the courage we need to enter new territory. We may be pioneering for ourselves, or leading the way for others, or a combination of both.

It is an exciting time, that perhaps will lead to some sleepless nights this week, due to our over-active minds. Even though we may gain some stability when the Sun enters placid Taurus on Monday, there are many planetary indicators of heightened mental activity throughout the rest of the week.

ONE OF THESE indicators is also on Monday, when Jupiter in Leo squares Mercury in Taurus. With this aspect, our enthusiasm may be running ahead of our planning. We may wonder if we really have enough things figured out on a practical level to make it all work, especially since it seems like we’re adding more items to our “to-do” list every few minutes.

But, Mercury and Mars are heading for their annual alignment on Wednesday, supporting us in taking action on our ideas. It’s nice that this alignment occurs in practical, earthy Taurus, since it will help us keep our feet on the ground even if we’re feeling a bit breathless over life’s rapid pace.

PLUTO forms helpful trine aspects to Mars on Tuesday and to Mercury on Wednesday, adding to the power behind their conjunction. Trines do not force us into action, but they help open doors so that what we are doing feels like “the natural next step” rather than a break from our path.

Pluto can be a powerful ally, especially when involved in trine aspects. The trine to Mars puts us into high gear as we become even more passionate about pursuing our desires, while the trine to Mercury adds to our determination to see our plans through to fruition.

WE MAY HAVE a reality check on Thursday, as Saturn makes a quincunx to the Sun. Quincunx aspects usually call for an attitude adjustment, and with the Sun in Taurus receiving the energy of Saturn in Sagittarius, we may become more aware of the changes that will need to occur if we actually take the new trajectory we’re considering (or may have already chosen).

With a Pluto-Venus quincunx on Friday, we may also realize that adjustments are needed in how we prioritize our time. This will require that we look closely at what we really value, and restructure our lives accordingly.

WE CONTINUE to confront our resistance to change on Saturday, through challenging aspects between the Taurus Sun, Chiron, and Ceres. With Chiron in Pisces, we may need to ask ourselves, “Can I have faith in the Universe and in positive outcomes, even if they are outside my conscious control, and I cannot yet see them?” If the answer to this question is “No,” or even “Maybe,” this is a perfect time to express love and compassion for the small fearful child within who is not quite sure about all this “faith in the Universe” stuff.

The Sun-Ceres square, also on Saturday, is a challenge to any remaining lack of self-esteem that could interfere with our chosen course of action. We will benefit from remembering that with Ceres in Aquarius, we find self-worth and self-acceptance when we claim our individuality and follow the path we internally know is right for us, even if it will require us to make choices that seem impractical, and even it means that we are no longer opting to do what someone of our age or situation “should” do.

With those inner conflicts to start the weekend, it’s lovely that we have a Uranus-Venus sextile on Sunday! This aspect can help reinvigorate our excitement about what’s next, and connect us with like-minded others who can support our new directions.

In peace,
Pam

THE PAST meets the future this week, urging us to make intentional choices in how we go forward from here. The energies of the Choice Point are centered in the powerful Total Lunar Eclipse on Saturday.

In the chart for this lunation, the Sun in Aries is aligned with Uranus, Mercury, and the South Node; the Moon in Libra is aligned with the North Node; and Pluto in Capricorn is squaring all of the above. This creates a cardinal “T-square” in the chart, with Pluto at the “apex” of the formation.

IN HIS BOOK Dynamics of Aspect Analysis, astrologer Bil Tierney writes that a cardinal T-square provides:
“… growth-accelerating lessons concerning personal energy expenditure applied toward major here-and-now objectives… We will need to develop greater self-discipline, inner timing, outer patience, and a general sense of thoroughness and organization to succeed… We must consciously analyze the practical facets of our own impulses to see if they will actually help us move ahead toward the realistic attainment of our goals. The more self-aware we allow ourselves to become, the more purposeful our live changes become.”

With Pluto at the apex of the cardinal T-square, its influence becomes even more powerful. As Mr. Tierney explains:
“With apex Pluto, life forces us to undergo explosive endings of one phase of our personal development in order to make fresh new starts in another phase.”

CHANGE seems to be the strongest theme here — but Mr. Tierney cautions us that successful change must be well thought-out and implemented, not arrived at haphazardly.

This may be harder than it sounds. Not only is Pluto at the apex of the T-square, but this Lunar Eclipse fully engages the vibrational field created by the Pluto-Uranus square. We can expect that the unstable energies we’ve been feeling recently will increase this week. But, through situations that unfold, we should gain even more clarity about what systems are no longer sustainable and where change is imperative if we are to make forward progress.

THE NORTH AND SOUTH NODES always play an important role an eclipse chart, since it is the proximity of the Sun and Moon to the nodes that is a characteristic of an eclipse. This means that every eclipse, especially a Lunar Eclipse, propels us into the future, and challenges us to let go of our attachment to what has been. Adding the Pluto-Uranus energies to this mix amplifies these themes even further.

This particular eclipse has not only the Sun, but also Mercury and Uranus aligned with the South Node. To move forward now, we will need to become especially aware of how our thought patterns (Mercury) have been taking us down roads of conflict (Aries) instead of ways of harmony. We will also want to watch for the knee-jerk “my way or the highway” reaction (Uranus in Aries) to see if it is really benefiting us in the long run.

The North Node, always pointing us toward the best route, is in Libra, and aligned with the Moon for the eclipse. We are directed to make our emotional balance a priority now, with the awareness that finding peace internally is a necessary first step to creating harmony in our relationships and in the world.

THE SABIAN SYMBOL for the Moon’s location at the time of the eclipse reads:
“Circular paths: Coming to terms with the inevitability of establishing steady rhythms of social activity.”

The image of “circular paths” at first sounds very different from the way we’ve been describing the transformational energies of this Lunar Eclipse. In comparison, a circle sounds calming and perhaps even boring in its repetitiveness.

And yet, because eclipses activate the North and South Nodes, they often require that we revisit the past before we catapult into the future. As we circle back through old patterns of behavior, we will want to a maintain a heightened awareness of who we have become and where we want to go to from here. This self-awareness will help us create those “purposeful life changes” that this T-square Lunar Eclipse requires.

In peace,
Pam

Charles Eisenstein | The New and Ancient Story #41 “What Are We Greedy For?”

p1x1.gif&c=6bfc4020-fe71-11e3-89a8-d4ae52900e00&ch=6c014930-fe71-11e3-89a8-d4ae52900e00

I’m so grateful for all the wonderful thinkers and activists, like Charles Eisenstein who are helping to shift our world from lack to plenty; from misery to joy, from greed to generosity. It’s not always easy to shift or open up our own perspective and understanding of things. Even when we are actively seeking such change the natural tendencies of our brains can generate resistance. The talent Eisenstein has for illuminating new perspectives and ideas is phenomenal. I don’t believe it’s an exaggeration to say reading his work can often be transformative. Thank you all for all you do to shift our world to this blessed future!

ohnwentsya

What are we greedy for?

A lot of people reacted to my comment on Facebook the other day that greed is more a symptom than a cause of our current system, with all its inequities. I’m asked, What is the cause of greed? First I’ll say what I think greed is: Greed is the insatiable desire for that which one doesn’t really need, or in amounts beyond one’s needs.

When we are cut off from the fulfillment of our basic needs we seek out substitutes to temporarily ease the longing. Bereft of connection to nature, connection to community, intimacy, meaningful self-expression, ensouled dwellings and built environment, spiritual connection, and the feeling of belonging, lots of us over-consume, overeat, over-shop, and over-accumulate. How much do you need to eat, to compensate for a feeling of not belonging? How much pornography to compensate for a deficit of intimacy? How much money to compensate for a deep sense of insecurity? No amount is enough.

The causes of our separation from all these things pervade every aspect of our culture. I was just reading yesterday an article about indigenous parenting practices. The author described how children rarely cried, because their needs were consistently and immediately met: constantly held day and night, given the breast on demand until they were three or four years old, and so on. It evoked memories of my childhood – though by our cultural standards extremely loving – in which I was nonetheless alone a lot, hungry for attention. Most of us in the West spent huge amounts of time alone: alone in the hospital nursery, alone in a crib, alone in a stroller, crying to have our needs met, and eventually adapting to them not being met. We toughened up and became used to a world where there is never enough, where we have to struggle and grasp and cling for fear of loss. Even the breast, the archetypal experience of plenty, was often denied, limited, or cut off before we were ready.

Perhaps such an upbringing is necessary in our cultural context. Otherwise we go through life trusting, unguarded, soft, easily exploited. We are prepared from birth for a competitive, dog-eat-dog economy. You can see how that deeply programmed insecurity can manifest as an innate tendency toward greed. It makes greed seem like our default state, and generosity seem like a hard, contra-natural attainment.

Various aspects of our economic system reflect this programming. For example, consider usury, which I described in Sacred Economics as the lynchpin of our system. The lender is fundamentally someone who has more money than he needs right now (that’s why he has the funds to lend), but instead of saying, “I don’t need it right now, you use it,” he says, “I’ll only let you use it if I end up with even more.” It fits right in with the mentality of scarcity and control. It fits in with a life experience that has taught, “There isn’t fundamentally enough. You have to grasp for it, ensure it, control those outside of you so that they will continue to meet your needs. Because if you don’t, your needs will not be met.” Because, most of us have not had enough of the experience of our needs being effortlessly met.

This psychology of interest, writ large, forms the playing field upon which the bankers and CEO’s and pension fund managers and politicians and even the small savers operate. Certainly, some of these take the greed to appalling extremes, but even without the shenanigans of JP Morgan and Goldman Sachs, the financial imperative to convert all natural and social capital into money would continue. The megabanks and hedge funds are the cleverest and most ruthless game-players, but the result – ecocide and impoverishment – is written into the rules of the game.

When I describe the experience of early childhood, I don’t mean to simplistically blame greed on only that. All aspects of our culture conspire to strip us of our connection and belongingness. Let me name a few more:

– Religious indoctrination into self-rejection.

– Schooling the keeps children indoors, fosters competition, and accustoms them to doing things they don’t care about for the sake of external rewards.

– Hygienic ideology that fosters a fear and rejection of the world.

– Immersion in an environment composed of standardized commodities, buildings, and images.

– The alienating effects of living among inorganic shapes and right angles.

– Property rights that confine us most of the time to our homes, commercial environments, and a few parks.

– Media images that make us feel inferior and unworthy

– A surveillance state and police culture that leave us feeling untrusted and insecure.

– A debt-based financial system in which money is systemically scarce: there is never enough money to pay the debts.

– A legal culture of liability in which everyone is assumed to be a potential opponent.

– Patriarchal belief systems that oppress the inner and outer feminine, confine intimacy, and make love a transaction.

– Racial, ethnic, and national chauvinism, that makes some of our human brothers and sisters into Others.

– An ideology of nature-as-resource that cuts us off from our connectedness to other beings and leaves us feeling alone in the universe.

– Cultural deskilling that leaves us as passive, helpless consumers of experiences.

– Immersion in a world of strangers, whose faces we don’t recognize and whose stories we don’t know.

– Perhaps most importantly, a metaphysics that tells us that we are discrete, separate selves in a universe of Other.

I could name another hundred of these. They compose the water in which we have been swimming, coloring our basic conception of self and world, our basic experience of being human. By no means are they the totality of anyone’s experience. The deeper truth of interconnection, of interbeing, always breaks through in one way or another, putting the lie to the illusion of separation. And these breakthroughs will happen more and more as the world of separation crumbles.

Just now my wife walked past me and gave me the most tender kiss. In that moment I felt completely at home. Have you ever been held in an experience of intimate connection and felt your wants diminish, felt the logic of control disintegrate?

We can go to war against the greedy, but it will solve nothing. It will in fact exacerbate the problem, because it will strengthen the field of Separation, which at its basis is a war against the other, a war against nature, a war against ourselves, a war of each against all.

Instead of war, what is the systemic version of that tender kiss? What will transform the atmosphere of scarcity that we are so accustomed to that it seems like reality itself? Because the “atmosphere of scarcity” is everywhere, everything must change. Sacred Economics describes the economic dimension of that kiss in the form of a lot of nuts-and-bolts economic proposals – reversal of usury, restoration of the commons, elimination of economic rents, a universal basic income, internalization of costs, economic localization, and so on. What they have in common is that they draw from a new and ancient story that no longer holds us separate. And, they contribute to a world that no longer drives us to separateness.

But greed is a symptom of a malady far transcending economics. As the list above suggests, no aspect of our society will be untouched in the revolution of love that is underway.

Disseminating Moon Phase: share, communicate

Moon in Scorpio/Sagittarius (7:30 pm ET/11:30 pm UT)

Wisdom Goddess: Dhumavati (Goddess of Smoke)

Skill: stay open-minded and open to opportunities

Positive Imprints: awakening, revelations, abundance, things coming to fruition, unseen assistance, self-representation, socializing, celebration, truth, participating, focusing time and energy in new ways

Catalysts for Change: control, telling people what to do, resistance to change, classifying, self-delusion, reliance on others when personal responsibility should be undertaken, elitism, judgmental, superficiality, anger, depression

Sabian Symbol for the Lunar Month: “a crowded public marketplace” (human interchange and exchange; self-expression)

Engaging the skills of a wise old owl today will enable us to flip from disruptive energetics of dominance, aggression, and anger to constructive energetics of interconnection, fellowship, and wisdom.

Mars and Pluto are astrologically in a square today, imposing strong masculine energetics which can be pushed to conflict. Mars and Pluto are the rulers of Scorpio, and the Moon will be in Scorpio until the exact time of the square around 7:30 pm ET/11:30 pm UT. Scorpionic energy goes to the depths, and it sometimes it can sting.

This particular combination of Mars and Pluto can take us into a realm where things seem unreal, illusive, and hard to grasp. A general disorientation or feeling of spacey-ness accompanies the energy. This brings inspiration, which can be channeled into creativity. Take advantage of the opportunity, because this is what it is. It may not be the greatest energy for accomplishing tasks in the 9 to 5 world, but it is phenomenal energy for coming up with ideas that make ALL worlds better.

Remaining in an open stance with an open mind and heart facilitates this today.

Remaining open to possibilities and opportunities is also a good idea. These new possibilities and opportunities could come about from something that initially appears unfortunate or negative. When planets make squares (are 90 degrees apart), things turn. Changes take place as we move in new directions, so be aware of the potential or opportunity for this.

Resisting changes can produce rather intensive effects, especially on the body. Listen to your body’s wisdom. It is naturally attuned to follow these sorts or shifts, so it wants to “move” today.

Anything that attempts to be imposed upon us that is does not feel right (or does not feel good) will not work today. The old imprint tries to bring things down on us, to clamp down on us, and restrict us. Anything along this line will not work out well. Disallow any attempt to control your mind, beliefs, and feelings.

It’s Disseminating Moon phase, the time when we share our ideas, projects, and thoughts with others and receive feedback. What comes back enables us to see the bigger picture and modify things so that they can be better. The universe naturally delivers feedback during Disseminating Moon phase, too. Background conversations, symbols, and synchronicities bring confirmation. An increase in confidence is the goal.

Stay open to the possibilities…

Disseminating Moon Phase: share, communicate

Moon in Scorpio

Wisdom Goddess: Kali (Goddess of Endings and Beginnings)

Skill: keep things as simple as possible

Positive Imprints: cooperation, personal responsibility, setting a good standard, opening up, reading a room or a situation (taking stock before acting), balancing giving and taking, seeing the best of what’s around

Catalysts for Change: self-denial, immaturity and arrested development, uncooperative, divisions (especially racial divisions), attempting to take from others

Sabian Symbol for the Lunar Month: “a crowded public marketplace” (human interchange and exchange; expressions of self)

Strong solar activity continues with three M-class flares in the past 24-hours. It is unknown at this time if coronal mass ejections accompanied any of the flares. The flares occurred yesterday at 10:33 am ET, 7:53 pm ET, and 11:23 pm ET / 2:33 pm UT, 11:53 pm UT, and 3:23 am UT.

Today’s overall energy is no less potent. Mars meets up with Uranus at the same place in the sky. In astrology this is called a conjunction. Jolts (more accurately, joules) of energy ripple through the field of consciousness (or grid of consciousness).

When the electromagnetics of these two planets meet up, shocking, surprising, and amazing things happen. Accidents are more common under this dynamic. Mars’ energy wants to move ahead and make things happen. Uranus’ energy wants to free us of whatever holds us back and get us back on our proper course.

Oftentimes, it’s a clash of the titans. Mars says, “Out of my way.” Uranus says, “Only if I say so.” Uranus always wins in this contest. He is older and wiser and has the mission of alignment with what is in our highest and best desires/interests. Uranus works at the soul’s level.

Venus starts the day at the degree of “the gate to the garden of all fulfilled desires” today, so that is a bonus for the energy of putting us where we need to be.

Later in the day, Venus will move to the degree of “a woman in pastel colors carrying a heavy and valuable, but veiled, load.” This energetic has been strongly in effect since March 2014. Today it brings the power to release or share a burden or secret and also the power to “load in” our hopes, wishes, and dreams for the future.

It’s a complicated day, and the Sun is amplifying it all. Under these conditions, we aim for keeping things as simple as possible. And we follow the course.

Disseminating Moon Phase: share, communicate

Moon in Scorpio

Wisdom Goddess: Matangi (Goddess of the Wind)

Skill: take a second look at things; attune with your values

Positive Imprint: patient, spontaneous, generous, adventurous, grace, attention to details, like-minded people coming together, new paths, balance, brain power, critical pieces of information provided, social gatherings

Catalysts for Change: impatient, impulsive, overly-critical of self and others, agitated, restless, bored, attacking, not moving on, following the road most traveled for safety and security, temptation, disorder, distortions

Sabian Symbol for the Lunar Month: “a crowded public marketplace” (human interchange and exchange, expressions of self)

The Sun released a powerful M9.2-class (almost X-class) flare with coronal mass ejection Saturday, March 7 at 5:22 pm ET/10:22 pm UT. The archetypal energy of 11 degrees of Libra – “a professor peering over his glasses at his students” was delivered. This is most interesting given that the Sun was making conjunction with Chiron, the Wounded Healer andTeacher, at that time.

In the weekend’s post, I discussed how the energy would bring up old pain, but that the wise thing to do was to focus on the teaching component of Chiron. I think the Sun (the divine being Sabaoth, according to the Gnostics) wanted to make sure we understood the teaching (or lesson, if you prefer, though I dislike the connotation of punishment with that word).

The solar flare and coronal mass ejection – the extreme light – reinforced our ability to see (and be).

Moving back into the present, today’s energy prompts a feeling of wanting to propel forward or get things going. We have ideas or visions in our minds of how we want things to be and we tend to want them now under this dynamic. In many ways, change is actually craved today, unlike most days when we are rigid and rickety with change.

But the Sun is disseminating the energy of “a table set for an evening meal” today, which is about making preparations and having patience. So there is a conflict or rub if we are trying to push things ahead of their time.

The highest octave of the “desire for change” energy today is to take another look at the table that is set for an evening meal (the field of consciousness) and see what we might like to add to it. The table may be set, but are there flowers? Do you want to add candles? What would make it more suitable or beautiful?

In other words, what do we want to add to our ideas and visions of the way we want our experience of life to be over the next year? (The “new year” according to the natural cycle of the Sun and Moon begins April 18. Until then, we are “loading in” to the fields of time and space our intentions and visions for the next year, i.e. setting the table.)

Keep in mind that there is an energetic signature that makes us more sensitive to going against the grain or the status quo or what is socially acceptable. If you feel naked and exposed, you are stepping beyond your comfort zone as you follow your heart’s path. Be patient with yourself.

It’s easy to find errors, see mistakes, and over-analyze today. When coronal masses are ejected, our brains light up, too. We have more brain power. Let’s keep ours from blowing fuses. Take breaks so that there is time for mental rest.

One last thing: If you find yourself in a conflict with someone, pause and determine if it is a battle you want to engage and if you have what it takes to back it up. It is very important to gauge situations before reacting to them today. Even if you are “right,” it is not necessarily in your highest and best interests to assert yourself. If anger is being triggered, it is even more important to gauge the situation. Be wise and take care of yourself.

Venus is delivering beautiful things that we can add to our “table” today. What are you adding to yours?

NorthPoint ASTROLOGY JOURNAL | March 9 to 15, 2015 | Pam Younghans

Posted Sunday, March 8, 2015
NorthPoint
ASTROLOGY JOURNAL
Your Guide to Planetary Energies for
March 9 to 15, 2015
By Pam Younghans
Photo: Auroras over Yukon, Canada on March 2, 2015 (credit:Joseph Bradley, posted on SpaceWeather.com)

IF YOU’VE BEEN WAITING for the energy and courage to take a risk, break free from the past, or make a major change, this week may very well provide you with all that, and more.

Mars, the planet of desire and action, aligns with Uranus, the planet of change and liberation, on Wednesday. These two planets come into alignment every two years, and so this week’s conjunction is not unique — but what is outstanding about this particular alignment is that it occurs within a week of the final Pluto-Uranus square. In fact, after Mars aligns with Uranus, less than seven hours pass before it then squares Pluto.

In astrological terms, Mars is acting as a “trigger” for the effects of the Pluto-Uranus square. That means we can expect this week’s events to act as the lever to pry us free from where we’ve been stuck, and to further dismantle old structures that no longer serve the greater good.

THE ENERGY is high as we begin the week, as Jupiter trines Mars on Monday. This planetary combination can help us feel that anything is possible. Mars is forthright and action-oriented, while Jupiter is optimistic and enthusiastic. The two working in harmony together provide plenty of inspiration and courage to apply to whatever opportunity or challenge is before us.

As Mars is also also conjunct Uranus, however, we may not be taking the time to consider possible outcomes before we take our leap of faith. There is a tendency to throw caution to the winds and worry about ramifications later. This, of course, can be helpful if we’ve been too tied to the status quo and need a good push to get us moving. But, especially with Pluto also involved, it will be wise to consider where we ultimately want to end up after we’ve leaped off the cliff.

OUR THINKING may also be more idealistic, somewhat confused, or at the very least less practical starting on Thursday, when Mercury moves into Pisces and immediately interacts with the Pluto-Uranus energy field.

Mercury will actually be at the midpoint between Pluto and Uranus on Thursday and Friday. A midpoint is a sensitive point that amplifies the energies of both of the planets involved.

With Mercury at that Pluto-Uranus midpoint, confusion or uncertainty are likely scenarios, as our brains try to come to terms with the changing reality that once was “life as usual.”

THANKFULLY, Saturn’s influence is also strong this week, since the ringed planet is moving very slowly now. Saturn will come to a standstill on Saturday and then change directions to begin its retrograde (backward-motion) phase.

Saturn’s job is to help us slow down and be more practical and responsible, so having strong Saturn energies at this time may actually be a good counterbalance to the extremes represented by Pluto, Uranus and Mars. Yes, there are times when we can feel grateful for Saturn, who we usually blame when life seems to be moving too slowly, or when we have to delay gratification of a need.

IF THERE ARE WORDS of advice to help us navigate the energies of the coming week, they might include:

  • Remember to breathe – and breathe deeply into your lower lungs
  • Stay in your center as much as possible
  • Know your own higher intentions in every situation
  • Let go of expectations and become an observer of events
  • Try not to attach to situations that arise — they may only be temporary, and giving your energy to them may make them larger than they need to be

And, most importantly, hold constant the vision of who you really are — that wise being who embodies the qualities of peace, faith, and hope, a being who can transcend the dramas of life and emerge from all circumstances with a brighter light, and with a stronger vision of what is possible.

In peace,
Pam
