Well, here we are just past the awesome Full Moon in Libra. This week Tom talks at us from a relaxing lovely spring. Wish I could go to a place like that right now, but imagining is the next best thing.
Mars in Taurus is heavy energy – stable and yet hard to venture outwards, lots of time out. Retrograde Venus in Pisces along with Chiron in Pisces takes us down, down, down into our inner selves – Chiron creates a healing crisis for many of us. The reason for this is so we can learn to feel our feelings. This is our root chakra, kundalini life force and is powerful. We’re like a volcano which is building up lots of pressure, wanting to blow – like a lion and a tiger in a cage, or a bull in a china shop.
Mercury in retrograde is commerce, business, things breaking down – Kaypacha’s internet went down the other day, it’s a good time to be prepared. It’s about fast, sharp, overwhelming amounts of information to the point where we don’t feel anything, actually even become a computer, needing more intense movies, sex, etc. so that we can feel. It’s been accelerating, so those of us remaining in touch with our feelings are so blessed.
Pisces is Spirit and CHiron wants to heal our division from Spirit. Meditation, music, yoga, dance, poetry, Nature – that which gets us in touch with healing and away from the mainstream news – so much chaos going on out there – we need to remain centered and come from a deeper profound meaning of love.
Lots of paraphrasing here but sometimes I throw in some of my own perspectives. Here the Sun is conjunct Uranus in Aries has us asking if we are truly living our truth, and if we are financially, sexually, physically satisfied. Is our love life working? Or not? These lower chakra connections brings up these questions – are we just friends, political allies, or is this something more? The movement of feeling is emotion. Our feelings and thoughts are maya – illusion – we deceive ourselves. We need to diagnose our lives, our relationships, our values and our goals. Bucket list evaluation – are we doing it or just surfing, getting distracted by this link, that link and that other link and before long headed for the grave?
Uranus in Aries helps us to break free from the chains of our old habits which no longer serve us. But we must be careful not to over-react. Action and not reaction. Three days to sleep on it, to dream on it. Uranus is the great witness, witnessing our feelings, our lives and our relationships. Saturn square is saying be mature, be patient, make a plan.
This is the Year of Profound Revelation and End of Illusion, so it’s best to be in that place of the Witness, where we see the places more freedom is needed, more discipline, be real and willing to break free of the old patterns. We must be conscious of our habits, then they are no longer habits. Habits are activities based on fear.
We can be afraid to change – they might not love us anymore, we might mess it up, but we have to take the risks and do the work and let go of the old order, the old paradigm, the old you, which is naturally scary. Saturn in Sagittarius is the root chakra.
It’s natural to be afraid to step up and out of the old ways, because letting go is just scary. Venus, Chiron, Neptune in Pisces is all helping us to let go and evolve into something even more of ourselves, our spiritual genius, let go and slowly allow Spirit, your own unconscious, whatever you want to call it, more room.
All of this and so much more in the spontaneous compassionate way that Kaypacha shares with us each week.
This week’s mantra: Great Spirit states it’s time to change,
not superficially rearrange,
but dig beneath the surface and the new
to the fear that is gnawing away at your root.
Kaypacha’s Farewell: Namasate. Aloha. So. Much. Love.
Kamea’s Farewell: Om Namaha Shivaya. Om Shanti. Shanti. Shanti.
