FIONA EDGAR: “Neptune Retrograde Will Bring Us A Deception-Filled Summer”

“It’s important to read through the lines and rely on intuition rather than the words of others around us or the media. During this period it’s vital that we allow ourselves to know and fully experience the truth, no matter how ugly it is, than to be comforted by lies.”

~Fiona Edgar

 

Neptune starts its retrograde journey tomorrow on June 21st — the summer solstice — at 18° Pisces and will appear to travel backward through the skies until the 27th of November, where it will turn direct at 15°. The retrograde is an optical illusion but its energetic effects are very real and affect us profoundly on a spiritual level.

The chart for the retrograde features a square between Jupiter and Neptune which increases the risk of confusion, illusion and deception and making important decisions may feel difficult. On the positive side, Saturn in sextile to Neptune will help us to see the truth and we’ll be rewarded for acting accordingly and not buying into any fantasies. Neptune retrograde acts as a doorway to real spiritual and emotional progress as long as we use self-awareness and remain open to identifying and working on our flaws, rather than pretending that they don’t exist or blaming others for our problems. Above anything else, remaining moral and doing the right thing will bring us the best results, even though it may seem like the more challenging option.

During this transit we’re being given the opportunity to see our lives more clearly, letting go of any fantasies and illusions and to live in truth, bringing healing to our relationships and any wounds from the past that have continued to cause confusion. This is a good time to conquer any addictions such as smoking, alcohol and drugs and dissolve the more negative Neptunian traits such as embellishing the truth or playing the victim.

Some of the lessons of this retrograde may involve dealing with situations that call for us to use discernment and we should avoid starting relationships or getting tangled up in situations that are based on lies or deception as these will cause loss and pain later on. It’s important to read through the lines and rely on intuition rather than the words of others around us or the media. During this period it’s vital that we allow ourselves to know and fully experience the truth, no matter how ugly it is, than to be comforted by lies. Regular meditation is a tool that will help us over the next few months as it’s much easier to live with honor and truth when we’re in touch with our own spirits. It’s almost impossible to fool someone who has developed their intuition so we should make working on this a priority.

The energies of this transit will help us to focus and make better choices and it’s a good time to take a look back at our lives and identify any situations where we created karma due to making the wrong decisions that had a negative impact on other people, or by doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. When we find ourselves in the same repeating situation with different people, maybe it’s time to figure out why we’re allowing them into our lives, or how we can change the cycle and hack reality. This is something that can easily be identified by our birth charts.

Working with the highest frequencies of Neptune retrograde will allow us to gain a more clear understanding of our hopes and dreams for the future and the universe will support us in making those dreams a reality. We may find the tools to build something that once seemed impossible and we may have an epiphany about issues that have been bothering us for the last few months.

CONSCIOUS REMINDER: “November 11, 2018 Will Be The Most Powerful Day In Over A Century”

The 11th of November is actually an essential period of vibrations, because it is, in fact, the 11th day of the 11th month. We are also in the 11th year, which is considered as the most potent days in more than 100 years.

The 1111 or 11/11 patterns actually have some exceptional spiritual importance because it is thought of being the pattern or number of spiritual awareness, as well as new and powerful beginnings.

Seeing the number 11:11 frequently on your clock or even when you are actually drawn to 1111, it usually indicated that there is some chance or some awakening period that comes for you.

The Universe, spirit guides or angels also utilize number patterns in order to connect, as well as communicate with people. Divine creatures usually use 1111, in order to help people in pointing them out the direction they need to go or illuminating them the path in front of them.

From a numerological point of view, 1 is an indication of new starts, but series of this number, such as the 11th of November or 11/11, create more powerful energies for the days which permit us to wake up for some new potentials.

The 11th of November is hence an active period for making changes in life, as well as for setting intentions or for digging deeper to discover the truths. New enlightenment levels, newly discovered information or recent awakenings are even possible during this period, because of the energy.

What is the importance of 2018?

The year 2009 was the last year when we had an 11 Universal Year, and before that year, it was in the year 1910. This actually means that more than 99 percent of the population in the world experienced the vibrations of one or possibly two 11 Universal Years in their lives.

Numerology says that this number is actually so-called Master Number, with the word ‘master’ meaning that it has a high or intense frequency of vibrations, and that works inside of the intellectual, aetherial and magical creation realms. Master numbers actually hold excellent potential for growth or learning, and they can also bring some significant transformations in life.

So, 11 is considered the most intuitional one, and it is a bright portal to our subconscious. Also, it is the one of spiritual realities, personal power, as well as leadership.

What ‘Shambhala’ means?

This word actually resonates to number 11, which is the Master number. Also, Shambhala is an excellent word which will help us in holding the best potential of this number 11 Universal Year.

The word is a Sanskrit one which usually translates as a space of tranquility, peace, as well as happiness. Every one of us can have the choice of living our lives with kindness for each other, as well as living in balance with the planet or in favor to a thing which is much higher than us.

This Universal Year 11 calls us to think of Shambhala, as well as how beautiful this world carries with itself when we actually experience it through the heart.

On this day, you should remember that if your life was inactive and you were feeling bad or even tired of all those same things, this will be the time of bringing a wind of fresh air in it.

To utilize the November 11’s energy, first, you will need to make it active. Also, open the heart widely to all that energy, as well as welcome the vibrations of some new starts.

CONSCIOUS REMINDER: “Understanding September Numerology — Accepting Changes”

The month of September fills us with a new energy. There is a change in the wind that feels fresh, smells of fruits and flowers, and promises a new beginning. This is also the month that signifies an important development according to studies in numerology.

What’s even more interesting is that this year the 9th month falls on master 11, i.e., 2018 (2+0+1+8=11). The transitions are going to be significant in this month and we’ll find some important answers too. It’s a great opportunity for us to understand what has been stopping us from a life of richness and success.

In fact, the entire year, 2018 has revolved around challenging situations. It is also an important call to all of us wherein we need to keep ourselves alert about how we can contribute to the world in some way. At the same time, one must see this time as an opportunity to deal with our own shadows.

Negativity may seep in at this time but it’s important to overcome these. This year, as reiterated earlier has all along been a roller-coaster ride, though gentler than the previous year. It’s essential that we look at the positive aspects than dwell on the failures for too long

According to Ahalya Running Deer, the spiritual teacher, Uranus will be in Taurus beginning from May 2018, up to 7 years. Our faults and failures will become so obvious even to us that we should take time out to redeem them. At the same time, it’s essential that we don’t start worrying about it so much that our progress is hampered. It’s a good time to start a new journey, if only we plan wisely.

Let your spirit guide you; be open to new experiences and changes that this month has to bring for you. The results of following your spirit will surprise you, as you’ll move away from momentary darkness in the soul to a brighter tomorrow.

Understanding September Numerology: Embracing Changes and the Magic of Number 9

According to numerology, 9 as a number represents a spiritual warrior. It is the force that influences the psyche. The change can only come if we start focusing on our inner self, embrace our strengths and weakness and not depend on external validation. We can take inspiration from our own failures and move ahead forward towards a better tomorrow.

If you still don’t believe in the power of number 9, then take out a moment to think of Gandhi. He too was born under the influence of number 9. His date of birth is 2nd October 1869, which when added comes to 2+1+0+1+8+6+9=27 and added further comes to 2+7=9.

So have you decided how you want to walk through September Numerology? This is the time to plan how you want the significance of number 9 to affect your life. Can you feel the change in your life? If you concentrate perhaps you’ll be able to sense the transformation that’s happening around you. What do you think you will do differently this time?

Let’s reflect on the oncoming of September Numerology

Do you want to change something about your life? This could be the best time to go ahead with it. Try meditation, yoga, dance, music, or painting to open up a world of new experiences. Let your boundaries be pushed a little to allow new understandings to enter your life.

Tap your innate energies and let your potential rise to the occasion. Your presence may be instrumental in letting others find their path. Embrace the new energy and join hands with those around you.

CONSCIOUS REMINDER: “September Astrology By Dates — This Is How The Energies Will Affect You”

1st to 7th September

The first week of September will have you finding yourself drudging over everything to get whatever work you have pending over some time, so you will not be particularly out of energy. You might feel some anxiety about how things will go and so on, but the solution is to hold the fort and make detailed plans about everything instead of getting worked up and losing yourself in the process. There is energy inside of you. You might also hear something you were not expecting or have an experience of some kind but they are all part of the cosmic learning process.

8th to 15th September

You might feel a fair amount of pressure during this time and may feel like you cannot do things because of this pressure but if you sit down and evaluate, you will find that you have created some of the pressure on yourself by yourself to try not to get hung up on the things that do not matter because they are inconsequential in regard to the big picture. Stay true to yourself and make sure you hold on to your self esteem. Things have a way of working out in the end.

9th September

The Sunday of the new moon is a good time to let go of everything you have been holding on to for a while and start anew. It is difficult to do this when we centre our lives around these things but one has to recognise that these things only upset us in the long run and it would be wrong to let them hurt us.

16th to 23rd September

You may feel a little less confident than you do usually and things may seem to make no sense but you have to keep holding on to your belief structure and making sure that you do not let this get to you in any way. It is the time of change and since change is in fact the only constant, do not fight it because it is actually useless. Change is the only way the human race can move forward so do not try to resist it in any way. There might be some health issues during this time so you have to be sure to take care of yourself to the best of your abilities.

22nd September

Saturday, fall equinox. It is the time one must take off to sit and think about everything that they have learnt in a while from different aspects in their lives, and how they have changed us as a person. It is actually a wonderful time to let go of things, as this whole month is about and make sure we have space for change and new things that will touch our lives.

24th September

Monday of full moon. New things and changes, along with everything a new moon stands for. Things will be conducive and welcoming to change, so as I mentioned above, do not try to resist it.

24th to 30th September

As the end of the month approaches, you will find yourself looking back at all the changes that have taken place in your life and think of them in a fond way, with a state of mind that induces a feeling of nostalgia. This feeling may grip you a little too intensely so it would not be a bad idea to take a little time off and take all this in and think about the growth that you have gone through and how change has fit right into your life and personality.
