Full Moon Phase: illumination, realization, fulfillment

Moon in Cancer

Ruling Wisdom Goddess: Kali (The Goddess of Reckoning)

Sabian Symbol for the Lunar Month: “an Indian chief claims power from the assembled tribe” (self-empowerment and personal sovereignty)

Skill: keep a gauge on your emotional reactions; gently release pressures a little at a time

Negative Imprint: showing off, opting out without thought of consequence, orchestrated rebellion, losing self-control, control issues, power struggles, neglecting the body

Positive Imprint: vitality, well-being, self-discipline, heartfelt communications, analyzing, spontaneity, creating systems and structures that are of service to humanity and the planet

A process of internal realignment that enables us to stand taller is underway with the Full Moon phase of the Wisdom Goddess Kali. Today, this comes about through a general application of pressure to turn, shift, transform, or change.

So we are “under pressure” today, which can make for some craziness, but ultimately it serves to strengthen us from the inside out. An internal realignment is happening where we are gaining self-control and self-mastery skills that help us overcome obstacles to 1) fully feel in love with living; and 2) birth and then participate (co-create) in the Second Renaissance on Earth. The Second Renaissance is the return of wisdom, beauty, and desire to the collective of humanity. It’s actually the return of sanity because it’s the time when humanity breaks free from the forces that have been controlling it. From there, a new world is “painted” into existence.

Pressure is mainly applied to emotions today. We need to keep a gauge on our reactions, because there is a tendency for things to burst out. This will play out primarily in professional situations and in romantic relationships. Mercury is making conjunction with Venus, so we are much more inclined to communicate our feelings. The thing to understand is that the overarching theme that is dominant right now is the theme of power and control dynamics within all types of relationships. Today, this surfaces within our feelings and communications about relationships and the activities in which we are engaged. We want to amp up our patience and communication skills to moderate the potential for impulsivity and thoughtlessness.

The Kali cycle tends to test us, and it is easy for “test anxiety” to set in when she is schooling us on life. She holds us to a high standard, so she is like the teacher or professor that a lot of students are afraid to end up with on their schedule – until you actually start class with her and wonder “Why the bad rap?” Kali grows us. Some people don’t want to change or grow. They are afraid of the new – the unknown.

Be aware that people are being tested and are testing others. It’s a natural part of today’s energetics, but it can become overblown if there are deep insecurities present that cause someone to test others on a regular basis. This month Kali is calling up the inner chief in all of us to claim our power – our individual gifts, offerings, and our individual sovereignty -within the assembled tribe of humanity. She is teaching us how to become our strongest, wisest self that does not need validation from or through another. Each of us can stand tall, on our own, like a tree.

The light of the Full Moon brings revelations, epiphanies, and insights that are at first puzzling. Consciousness and wisdom is expanding, so we are trying to understand new data and new material. The best way to try and understand or integrate something new is to return to sources of knowledge that are old. The ancient wisdom holds the key to understanding the future. Turn to tried and true sources if you are seeking an understanding. These may be modern outlets for ancient wisdom.

Our physical bodies are trying to respond to the realigning energies also, so it is a good idea to take some extra time for your body. Any type of bodywork is extremely helpful today. Just stretching will help tremendously.

So there is a lot happening today, but the things to keep in mind are:

  • emotions are running high and people are feeling pressured
  • the pressure may come out impulsively, through our conversations with others
  • work and romantic relationships are the focus
  • tests of character are underway
  • the tendency to exaggerate and distort is high, producing potential for drama
  • answers are found in the old wisdom

It’s the job of all wise owls with wings over the world to fall back in love with life. We loved it once, do we now? The beautiful and natural ways remain. They have been covered over by dust, murk, and shadow, but Kali and the Winds of Change are blowing all of that off – pressure washing it – to reveal the shine of what once was. It’s a good justification for feeling the pressure, so we are wise to it today and will sustain.

Thank you for supporting the Oracle Report. Blessings to all!

Crescent Moon Phase – Moon in Taurus – Ruling Mahavidya: Matangi

There are two main things in operation today. One current involves themes of loyalty and guardianship. This energy drives us toward protecting people, places, things, ideas, and principles that are meaningful to us. Our actions today demonstrate where our loyalties lie and what is truly valuable to us.

The other current involves making a connection with something before Mercury stations retrograde tomorrow. This connection is also with people, places, things, ideas, and principles. The universe is conspiring to make this connection, so we need only to follow along with our day. There is a lot of “congestion” in the energy, so the universe will be cutting through a lot to make the connection.

Everyone should note today and tomorrow’s events, as these things will be revisited when Mercury stations direct at the end of the month. Mercury will turn direct at the point in the sky where the Sun is now. Whatever is in place today and tomorrow will be re-activated and will come back around. It will be more refined and developed by then.

This month, each of us is “standing guard” on the “vast staircase” (see Archives of the past week’s reports for reference). We are in place and in position. This means that when we are emotionally triggered by events that are happening in our lives and in our world (or things that we fear may happen in our lives and in our world), we hold our ground. We remain centered. We keep it together. We build our power. We do this by understanding that we are connected, via the staircase, to everyone else who is engaged in the same mindset. We are united by our love for the planet and her vision for humanity. Each of has our own stair, our own place to be and space to hold. We stand for freedom of the human mind and the expression of beauty.

It goes without saying but should be said that we have the support of our own fiercely loyal guardians.

If you start to struggle or get frustrated, it’s the sign that you need to slow down and be patient. Become still and let the universe make some connections for you.

Crescent Moon Phase: expansion, growth, gathering, challenges

Moon: Aquarius/Pisces

Ruling Mahavidya: Kali

AUDIO RECORDING 12/31/2013 – Gregorian New Year – New Ruling Mahavidya – KALI (copy and paste the link)

https://www.freeconferencing.com/playback.html?n=/storage/sgetFC/IJ4wb/aIRQki

At the New Moon on January 1, we were joined by a group who will accompany us on the journey through the month of January. This rowdy band of brothers includes Pluto, Uranus, Mars, and Mercury. This weekend, as we walk through the tangled forest of the Crescent Moon phase, we encounter another traveler, Jupiter. He’s traveling in the opposite direction, but Jupiter is a wise old warrior, so we stop to talk to him.

With Jupiter’s appearance on the journey, this month becomes even grander than we imagined. He points out new things and explains them, teaching us about the beautiful things in nature and the natural order of life. He explains that there is more going on that what initially meets the eye. He helps us with our vision. He provides a lot to talk about. He tells us about the way ahead.

Jupiter’s addition fits well with our mission on this month’s journey, the mission delivered at the New Moon with the Sabian symbol’s image of a student of nature, lecturing and revealing little-known aspects of life.

It is important to state here that this band of brothers is archetypal . In no way do we want to “deify” the planets. The only deities in our solar system are the Earth (Gaia-Sophia) and the Sun (Sabaoth). The Moon is a satellite used to facilitate the growth process of humanity. But the planets in the solar system are merely instruments.

This weekend we are directed to take a bit of a rest. We listen to what Jupiter is teaching and showing us. He has an uncanny ability to expand things into places we didn’t know about. This is the highest use of the weekend’s energy. But many will react to the Jupiter addition with expansion of conflicts and aggression. Moods can swing and emotions can run wild. Jupiter’s touch amplifies what is already present, so there is a great deal of reinforcement of the New Moon energetics. But Jupiter is retrograde, so its influence is not as strong as usual and it will pass rather quickly. We will take what we can from it.

Though we are traveling with the archetypal rowdy band of brothers this month, the journey is lead by Kali, who is not archetypal. She is real and she is powerful and she is with us every step of the way. Nothings stands in Kali’s way – nothing at all. She obliterates anything that would obstruct or attempt to thwart us. We travel safely.

Today’s report is a bit of a departure, but so goes the energy. This report is like a children’s story because capturing the simplicity of a child helps us to see a much vaster perception right now. Instead of struggling through whatever comes your way courtesy of the Crescent Moon phase, step out of it and become receptive. It’s time for a pause.
