During this time of great imbalance you may feel torn between the priorities of healing yourself and your immediate ‘family’ (resolving your own inner spiritual, psychological or physical problems) and attempting to cure the social and economic ills that beset our global culture.

The 23rd Saros 142 Solar eclipse and New Moon on the 14th of December arises in Mutable Fire. The concept of mutability means that you have an impact on another, as much as they have an impact on you. So the way in which you respond, not only tells the world a lot about you, it also intimately impacts the other.

LOve. It is one of the most powerful emotions that fuel our lives. Hate, fear and anxiety have nothing on the power of lOve. After all, ‘love is not love which alters when it alteration finds, or bends with the remover to remove. O no! It is an ever-fixed mark that looks on tempests and is never shaken’ (Shakespeare) ‘Love is the diamond’ (Rumi) the everlasting jewel that guides and informs all our actions, without which we are bereft and lost.

In the beginning was the Word. But this Word did not ‘know’ itself. It just was. Born of ‘woman’, as the Native American traditions suggest, it is a place of non-action, of stillness and of unlimited fecund potential. It is the moment before movement. It is the motion behind evolution. It is the source of creativity. It is the deep pool from which life is birthed. It is the place of the non-manifest, that source from which life is generated.

This Solstice New Moon illuminates those patterns and complexes that have prevented you from experiencing Oneness – whether with another or more importantly with yourself – and what will emerge from within you over the coming six months is only meant to shed those deep emotional scripts and legacies left over from your lineage and from the penetration of the dark hand of society.

We have been living through an amazing time. The clearness of the sky, the regeneration of the Earth; the reconsideration of what is truly important; the hunger to reach out and connect to others; the confrontation with ourselves; the looking deeply into the Shadow; the breaking down of structures and relationships that no longer serve; and the deep questioning of life and the way in which it has been generated.

MAY 3rd -7:00pm -EST- PATRICIA WALSH – Transiting Nodes – Sagittarius/ Gemini : The Divinity of Diversity – Out of One, Many!
The image that came when Patricia contemplated this transit – a Centaur shooting a single arrow straight up into the night sky, and many arrows falling back down to earth like shooting stars. The concentrated focus of the Archer is now open to new possibilities! As the lunar nodes transit into the mutable signs of Sagittarius (Synthesis and Singularity)/ Gemini (Diversity and Plurality) we can begin to shake off the dust of the crumbling structures around us and what limited us in the past (Capricorn) to rediscover what enthuses us and the diverse ways it might show itself now.

How are you truly doing amidst this redistribution of power, a time, whether artificially hijacked by the governing forces, terrified of losing their grip on power, or Gaia’s attempt to be heard? For many introverted sOul explorers, what we, as a collective, are moving through is no different than normal! However for many who talk of detoxing, of having time to focus on things that matter,

Any New Moon gives us a chance to take a moment to replenish and renew our emotional body and our heart centre with a differing consciousness, and since this dawn aligns with the Chironic part of our sOul, we have an opportunity to heal the wound to our Crowns, and to re-connect to Oneness. How we approach this suffering is really down to you an individual.

The ocean is ‘water in motion’. If you have ever watched a small section of the ocean, you will notice that is constantly rippling, creating waves. If you isolate and label that part of the water as a wave you are given the impression that the wave is a separate entity to the ocean. But a wave is not in the ocean. A wave is the ocean.
