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.

ALLISON ENGEL: “Have You Been Feeling The Trickster Archetype On The Prowl?”

“If the enemy remains behind closed doors in the psyche, then it can continue to show up in our experience and victimize us.  Until we face these repeating patterns we cannot unblock channels of abundance and properly lay the ley lines of heaven on earth.  All must heal within the self in order to transform into a power player.”

~Allison Engel

 

The trickster is the dark force/Lucifer/vampire archetype that is popping up through our consciousness again.

With the last energy blast on May the 2nd hit, we were cleared of everything that was blocking the last bits of ego suppression so that we can see how the trickster operates within.  The next part of this journey as Mars goes retrograde on May 12th is Ego Ascension.  This is an uplifting experience of the warrior releasing all prowess in the fight.  We then get to kick back and see how we are shaming ourselves and being our own barrier to abundance.

The wicked will lose the fight this whole period, so if the trickster has you thinking that you are fighting the good fight against evil out in the ether, then you will be challenged to remain peaceful and not cast shadows on the other in your experience.  You will get to see how anyone who initiates a fight will lose the battle.

The asteroid belt is full of surprises, because very little of these archetypes have been named and explored.  When it comes to the psycho-social mechanisms in society, there is an auto-immune reaction within our own framework that tries to illicit feelings of excitement and grandeur in the hidden realms in the psyche.  This is to counter balance the grid work that we all must do to be accountable for our own inner transformational healing.

If the enemy remains behind closed doors in the psyche, then it can continue to show up in our experience and victimize us.  Until we face these repeating patterns we cannot unblock channels of abundance and properly lay the ley lines of heaven on earth.  All must heal within the self in order to transform into a power player.

Our auto-pilot program around authority is that the system is evil/bad and controlling the people.  This unfortunately is mislabeling the institutions that are able to provide abundance of revenues streams and if we can tune into our own inconsistencies around being a loving and powerful human we can stop the vampire clause in the system and level up our own playground of wealth and abundance.  We then continue to afford what we project.

If being wealthy is “bad” then we are devaluing abundance desires within.  It isn’t spiritual to be poor and sick and a victim to the authority.  It is spiritual AF to take back the power grid and create huge revenues of cash for healing systems to pop up around Gaia.  It can only happen if you champion through your own experience and understand that you are weak to the authority that is if you continue to think that the power of the dark has more authority than any single human.  That is a dark authority within that wants to be held and honored in the space of love and nurtured back to health.  Then that shadow becomes more power and something that can no longer seemingly come from outside, as you have already championed it in your own ley lines.

Each of the archetypes wants to honored and held in the space of light and release it of its densities and mental constructs that keep the individual in an auto program of melancholy or fight or fight.  This way the purity is within and the system can only power forward and honor what it truly wants to experience.

The event is every day as we get surprised by our own unconscious appetites for freedom.  There is no more waiting as every day is a journey through the unconscious realms in our own hero’s journey.  And now we know how.

SANDRA VARCAS: “Mercury Retrograde In Capricorn And Sagittarius: Dec 19th, 2016 — Jan 8th, 2017”

gnfd.gif

Our True Face

Conjunct Pluto as it stations retrograde in Capricorn, this is an incisive Mercury with little patience for subjectivity, or sensitivity for that matter!  We may be disappointed if we want life to go gently with our feelings as the year closes, for there are more potent agendas at work, in service of truth-telling and revelation no matter the cost.  This Mercury wants to squeeze the last drops of wisdom out of 2016 before the new year begins, and won’t let anything be swept beneath the carpet for a more convenient time.  In the spirit of effective closure and resolution of unfinished business, this is an important time to clear the air and face up to whatever in our life has become undeniable.

It has been an explosive year, what with the Uranis/Eris conjunction and the Saturn/Neptune square The personal and collective shadow is being purged.  Brought to light for all to see, it has at times triggered panic and despair alongside strengthened commitment to forge new paths and a deepening of faith in our ability to both endure and transform.  We are immersed in this process now, and will be for quite some time.  We are nowhere near out of the woods.  Far from it.  And this melting pot of sometimes traumatic change cannot be escaped.  Renewal of our commitment to a radical realignment with a more vibrant, courageous and heart-centered existence will become increasingly vital in the months ahead.  Meanwhile, Mercury insists that we face up to the truths of our lives, the secrets we guard and the shame we feel but deny.  It deplores artifice and rejects pretense.  This Mercury seeks only the straight-up truth which it insists we honor with every breath.

Doing so may not come naturally, but the more deeply we embrace unpalatable truths the freer we become.  It’s okay to not be the person we want to be or have insisted we are.  It’s alright to be flawed, messed up, an emotional wreck barely getting by!  At this juncture it’s not what we are that matters, but how honest we are about it.  If we present a face to the world which isn’t as real as it could be, obscuring aspects of our nature we’d prefer to deny, this Mercury retrograde could see our true face exposed for all to see.  If, however, we can simply let go and accept this is me, warts and all, like it or lump it and take me as you find me, we may just discover that the rejection we feared is replaced with love and support, acceptance and deepening respect.

Above all, it is now vital to remember the more candid we can be about our own truth, the less others will have to hide.  What we do for one we do for all, and the more people who add honesty and authenticity to the collective soup, the easier it becomes for us all to do the same.  We are none of us perfect in egoic eyes, and yet all are precious gems through the eyes of love.  The more we can love our own flaws and failings, quirks, foibles and idiosyncrasies the easier it becomes to accept those of others and see beyond the charade of who we pretend to be.

There is much to be done in the coming year.  Great challenges lie ahead and we are nowhere near done with this shadow revelation.  But we can each contribute to a more tolerant and progressive world by dropping our own pretense, embracing the truth of who we are and daring to share it with those around us, knowing that doing so helps them do the same.  What we endeavor to hide will be unceremoniously revealed; where we aim to deceive, we will fail; what we pretend, will be exposed as a lie.  On this we can absolutely rely as Mercury and Pluto do their work deep within the fabric of our lives.  But truth, authenticity, honesty and good-natured humor — even in the face of our greatest challenges — will all contribute to an atmosphere of acceptance, support and love, allowing compassion to rise like a bubble and dissolve even the most well-crafted and deep-rooted lie.

LISA RENEE (Energetic Synthesis): “Surrendering”

centeredcode2

We have multiple planets in the Solar System moving into a retrograde position, which adds to the intensified sensations of the amplified polarities that are surging in the collective consciousness fields of the planet, during this cycle. Many of us that are sensitive to the collective miasma rising can feel this purge of imbalanced energies surfacing as a type of energetic pressure that gains its chaotic momentum in the environment. These accumulated misqualified or imbalanced energies in the collective consciousness have to find a point of release in order to clear out from the planetary grid.   We may have noticed over the past few days several strong earthquakes and volcanoes have erupted in the Pacific Ring of Fire, a direct result of tectonic plate shifting through the massive amounts of accumulated collective energies, both natural and unnatural,  attempting to find pressure points to release.  When there are multiple planets in retrograde simultaneously, there is a tendency in the planetary field to generate intersections between multiple timelines where people, places and things of the past, present and future, energetically bleed through into the current moment of reality. This can bring surreal and unexpected circumstances that may feel disorienting and strange, where things feel out of whack and we feel that we are out of sync with our daily schedule in life.

With all of the retrograde influx of multiple planets in reversal energies, it can feel frustrating, as it may seem we keep bumping up against roadblocks or knocking on closed doors which are not opening to allow us any progressive forward movement. Retrogrades at this level of intensity will force us to slow down, and change our schedule or routines, it will make us take careful, deliberate and well thought out steps before we commit to anything in the future direction of our life. If there are circumstances that are not moving with us in the next new cycle, they tend to fall apart, breakdown and be completely dismantled. As challenging as this can be, it gives us more opportunities to resolve karmic issues where we have been stuck in a loop or we have felt stuck in a pattern through the imposing nature of things operating in our periphery.

When we undergo such prolific and rapid change, our energy body (lightbody) and our emotional state can be more vulnerable to feeling weaker and more exposed to negative emotions. We may feel that negative emotional state in other people, and catch the low vibration which amplifies the voices of our own inner fears. Thus, it is essential to maintain spiritual center and energetic balance as possible, taking very good care of our emotional body, as we undergo a series of rapid, life altering transformations. This is the time to discipline and observe our thoughts, while being especially careful of where we place our mental focus and invest ourselves emotionally. We will have challenges to meet inside ourselves, while the people and things around us will reflect back to us, the same kinds of mental and emotional challenges for us to master. This is the inner to outer, and outer to inner challenge of seeing the collective consciousness mirror and maintaining grace while under pressure!

When we undergo such intense and rapid changes, it may also mean that we will experience both endings and beginnings in many areas of our life. When involved in these types of intense changes, we will want to know that we can create a sense of personal freedom while enduring rapid growth, and simultaneously, decrease any entanglements, dramas, and the forces of chaos that tend to be generated in the dismantling phases. The art of Surrender is especially useful when enduring these chaotic phases of transformational growth, where it may seem that things are backfiring and going in the wrong direction. The art of Surrender requires increasing degrees of trust and self-reliance that we develop inside ourselves, and it is the process of learning to let go in order to reach beyond our limitations. We cannot be codependent or involved in circumstances that are harmful to our emotional and spiritual growth, and this will be transformed into situations that involve greater self-reliance in order to develop inner strength. We get constantly stretched beyond the parameter of our inner resistances, that are based on our unresolved fears. As we surrender to the process of transformation and let go, we learn how to trust ourselves more, in order to confidently navigate in these new circumstances.

Surrender does not mean being passive, helpless or powerless when being confronted with conflict. It is about discerning the correct balance needed between action and non-action, and surrendering the end result or outcome to your highest purpose and highest self, even if you cannot fathom what that looks like right now. Growing compassion for ourselves helps us to surrender to accept these changes with composure, centering and level headedness. We remove the negative self-talk and stop mentally torturing ourselves with the anxiety and fear of not knowing what’s coming next. The power inherent in Surrendering will help you to let go and accept that not knowing what will happen is just fine.  Sometimes, it gives us the opportunity to re-examine strong inner desires we have had in manifesting something, and coming to the deeper realization that this was just not meant to be. This is a testing of the contents of our heart, to deeply discern the difference between personality or instinctual desires versus the deeper motivations and prompting that comes directly from our inner spirit. When we surrender to the process of intense or rapid transformation, it helps us to attune to the natural flow, the synchronistic alignment of energies. When we are feeling into the natural flow, and we are listening to follow the energetic synchronicities, we are honoring divine right timing and divine right order.  There is no way to think our way towards Surrendering to the natural flow, we must feel into it.  Surrender cultivates the power of the heart, develops higher sensory perception, and helps us to find and listen to the inner stillness. All of these practices will strengthen the energetic harmonizing effects in every area of your life, which will guide you to the highest outcome and choice that is designed for your personal spiritual growth and ultimately, fulfilling your highest expression.

Applying the intuitive art of Surrendering to all aspects of ourselves will support restoring energetic balance and thus, increasing harmony in all areas of our life.

Physical Surrender: Every day feel into our physical self and sense our current physical wellness, while regularly moving our body intermittently throughout the day, helps to release stored tension and blockages. We can also apply breathwork, in short breaks in the day, to refocus our mind to help release mental and emotional tension stored in the body. As you keep your body as relaxed as possible throughout the day, it increases the surrender potential of the body to let go of held tensions immediately, when exposed to different stressors. We do not want the body to hold onto stress or tension.

Emotional Surrender: Observe feelings and when you clench or tighten up from instinctual reactions. Work on resolving emotional conflicts that lead to resentments, blaming or generating unloving thoughts towards yourself. Recognize when you are emotionally carrying tension or feeling upset, and work on letting that go, in that moment, do what you can to find peace, acceptance and tranquility with whatever had been bothering you.

Mental Surrender: Most of the time our ego mind wants to understand the end result or outcome of events, and will try to control the outcome to our favor. On the spiritual path, one learns that this controlling behavior will backfire and many times creates obsessive looping thoughts. Refocusing our mind to maintain peace, and asserting that it is not up to you to know everything, helps to let it go and give the circumstances to flow with higher purpose.  Mindful meditation, and the ability to still the mind, can shift obsessive thoughts, and allow the mental body to surrender to the natural flow. This is deferring personal will to divine will, in knowing there is a blueprint and plan for all things in our life.

Spiritual Surrender: When we surrender to spirit, we are giving over control to the God forces, while we release ourselves from the need to exert control. We realize that we are not alone, and that this burden is not ours to carry by ourselves. We have the love, power and compassion from Gods spirit to guide us, and as we trust in the divine right order, we become more comfortable with life’s uncertainty. Developing trust with our inner spirit and relationship with God, makes letting go much easier.

Take good care of yourself at this time, give yourself plenty of loving kindness, and patience as you are learning the art of Surrender.
