The Oracle Report Tuesday, December 24, 2013 – Wednesday, December 25, 2013

image

Tuesday: Disseminating Moon Phase: sharing, demonstration, distribution: Moon in Virgo

Wednesday: Third Quarter Moon Phase: realign, revise, take responsibility: Moon in Libra

Diamond Sky Dakinis Rule This Lunar Month, Not The Mahavidyas

On Tuesday, we complete the Disseminating phase of the Disseminating time of year – the optimum time for sharing, expressing, giving, and receiving. Messages, information, inspiration, solutions, feedback, and insights fall like snowflakes.

Tuesday and Wednesday’s energy works in tandem. Whatever is imprinted or built into Tuesday’s energy (through mindsets, emotional states, intentions, events) finds its way into Wednesday’s energy. A “splitting” or “divergence” results on Wednesday, creating divisions. We see how some are controlled and controlling (intimidating) and some are free and freeing (loving).

If you find yourself involved in the controlled/controlling/intimidating experience, don’t engage the aggression, but if it comes to defending yourself or your position in some way, do so from the stance of the spiritual warrior. Consider if this is something you really want to put energy and effort into. If so, remain in your heart center, firmly grounded in place. Be respectful and recognize that nothing need take you off that stance. The outcome is not measured by success in changing someone’s mind; it is measured by whether or not you were swayed off center and ground by relying on others’ reactions. Stay true to yourself. Remember that old values are dissolving and that the return of the sacred masculine is rebalancing and rectifying things. We are witnessing this right before our eyes. Massive transformation and change is happening in the world.

The intense astrological energies I’ve been highlighting over the last several days drive anger, fear of change, fear of the unknown, relationship issues, accidents, and aggression into situations. We want to opeate above all of that. To do this, we strive for peace of heart that comes from watching falling snowflakes. Watching snowflakes transports us to another mindscape where we are still and the heart and mind can unite. The inner masculine and feminine merge here.

So as we walk through our lives and are engaged in whatever activities the next couple of days holds, we will be like the deer in this photograph, standing amidst the falling flakes, accruing the wisdom on our antlers, immersed in the scene yet somehow offset from it and somewhat invisible. We stand in the middle of power. Via frequency resonation, we come together through this endeavor and through our numbers, imprint and infuse peace and harmony into the energy. It’s a worthy endeavor.
