2-27-2014

Reflecting upon our month (and our year so far) is a great activity for today! Review and reconnect with your intentions for this 9 month on an 18/9 day and you might see what has completed, what is ready for new ideas and where you have grown. How much deeper might you go these next two days before the new moon and the new month?

I’m excited to announce…

2014 The Year of Practical Magic – NEW Audio Program!

Receive almost 2 full hours of insight, information, and practical suggestions of how to access the magic and mystery of this ‘7’ year (click here to order).

February Numerology

February calls forth our philanthropic natures, our artistic desires, and our well-earned wisdom. What have you learned from taking paths less travelled or following your inner voice? This month, you will begin to see how these paths weave together, creating a sort of closure – that of a circle, a symbol that allows us to feel connected to the beginning and end all at once. Closure leads to new beginnings so anything that has been lingering or wanting to complete gets priority. Every time we grow, we have an opportunity to integrate, choose what we would do again (or not), and begin again. As this month begins close to a New Moon, we can watch this orb for its wisdom: dark to full to dark, each phase bringing us change, fullness, and openness.

2014: The Year of Practical Magic

Do you remember the magic of childhood walks through ‘the woods’ or the ‘faerie gardens’ of your own backyard? Can you imagine sending wishes up to the stars at night and feeling much joy at the connection with Universe of bright lights? How is it that refined intentions and desires are met with ease and grace in the highest and best way by a Universal Source of Love?

2014 is the year to deepen our understanding of the Great Mystery. The Universal Year Number is 7, well known for its spiritual significance throughout history and many spiritual practices.

The vibration of “7” emphasizes the integration of the mystical and material worlds. So, 2014 is THE YEAR to infuse business, health, love, and more with inspiring spiritual guidance coming from within our own hearts and souls. It is vital to allow time for pauses, retreats, and reflection as part of the bigger process of creating better relationships, optimum wellness, deeper fulfillment, and generous abundance.

Here are just a few questions to consider (there’s more!):

• Which changes will assist our growth and evolution and which ones will be nurturing, comforting and supporting to us at this time?
• How do we see tangible results?
• How will we use our creativity?
• How will we approach healthy risks?
• What has heart and meaning?
• Where is my spiritual center?
• How do I trust my inner knowing?
• What do I need for support for a deeper understanding of myself and others?

Full Moon January 15 2014
11:52pm EST/ 8:52pm PST
25 Cancer 58

Workers still control the means of production.

I want to take this moment to thank all of you who have been reading my articles. I really appreciate your willingness to consider what I say. I am a born rebel, and while I think that when I write I can make my thoughts comfortable, I know that no matter how you slice it, it is still rebellious. Anarchic, even.

So I thank you for stretching that way, following me across a landscape in which no hierarchy persists.

Astrology, like any belief system, has the tendency to be used to justify hierarchies, especially when applied to the notion of the “higher” self. There are just too many ways to see the human experience as a stumbling block along the way to an awareness outside the body. We all end up outside the body, but for whatever reason, we are in one now. Why rush it?

For me, astrology is about the felt experience of life. And who’s to say if there is any downside to a lifetime of junk food, TV and cigarettes? Illness may be caused by imperfect thought patterns, but what is the mind if not another sense organ? In other words, I can’t judge where your soul wants to go, because I know that it came here. The moral question is simply one of presence – what does that mean to you? Is it something you have to go find? Can you buy it?

So I see the birth chart as a map of what presence feels like for you and how and why you resist it. I look at the astrology of the collective (mundane astrology, the kind of thing I’m doing with these articles), as keying me in to the collective frequency (or felt experience).

In the sense of “structures breaking down” that we’re living, even hierarchies of what constitutes presence must be challenged. You want to be present? Cancel your auto insurance and have a cop follow you down the road. You’ll be right there at the wheel and nowhere else, guaranteed.

So there’s this astrology going on, right now. Pluto squaring Uranus, Neptune and Saturn septiling Pluto, Jupiter and Venus retrograde and stationing direct, Mars stationing retrograde, a big grand cross forming. Yes, it means something. And if you want someone to tell you about how it is taking you towards your higher self, how we’re all transforming into beings of a higher frequency, a higher dimension, blah blah, you better find another writer. Because what I am seeing happening is all about the terrestrial.

Catalyzing events punctuate history. And in every case, the punctuation has been a rebellion of some kind. It would be nice to think that all the outrageous acts of non-acceptance (ooh!) undertaken by the most inspired individuals, the history-makers, are leading us somewhere good. So why are we so passive right now? Why are we willing to watch the formation of totalitarianism?

Well the truth is that many of us are not. There is a rebellion in full-swing at this time and so far it is of course under-reported. The food sovereignty movement, Idle No More, and dozens of other actions are being undertaken, by people willing to expose themselves to an increasingly hostile police state. And yes, I am being very careful in my word choice here, giving full credit to the power of the frequency of my words.

So let us examine the ongoing Pluto/Uranus square for a moment. In any planetary relationship, the conditions of the whole experience of the cycle (from conjunction to opposition and back to conjunction) are set forth in their conjunction. That’s why New Moons are so important. So to really get into the tone of this period in history, you have to go back to their last conjunction, which occurred through the mid-1960s. Remember the streetfighting man? Resistance to the Vietnam war, etc.?

As Richard Tarnas, in Cosmos and Psyche, has so extensively elucidated, aspects between Pluto and Uranus show up coincidentally with rebellion. With re-distributive action in particular. So in the context of the energy of the mid-60s, what does this waxing square have to say about how life feels right now?

Well, you tell me. There is something very unsettled in the air, hey?

What is interesting to me is that what appears to be the most polarized populace in US history has so much common ground. I’m talking about the 99% here (and by using that term, invoking the Occupy movement by way of the North Node entering Libra on February 18th). Left or right, everyone is quite certain that everything anyone of political stature says is, at best, a survival-level sales pitch. And by survival-level, I mean that it is said for the purpose of perpetuating idealogical polarity. As long as we are so divided, we the people are without consensus, and cannot act in unity.

As it happens, the waxing square (faster planet heading away from slower planet) aspect is all about the physical experience of life – I value my waxing squares extremely and hope you value yours. So maybe we could characterize the mid-60s energy as having something to do with an awakening impulse to re-assign hierarchical primacy to nature. And this waxing square period as having to do with the physical experience of the (for the most part) failure so far to achieve that. So the physical experience of nature herself reasserting her primacy has something to do with it. And as well, the fear-based reactions to that reassertion, such as denial of anthropogenic climate change.

And speaking of anthropogenic climate change, ain’t there are a lot of Pluto in Leo Duck Dynasty types out there? Lord have mercy! Parenthetical note: Pluto in Leo is the compulsion towards personal significance, most often in the form of an outrageous denial of collective consequence. Like, private jets and stuff.

But somehow, we gotta love ‘em. Embrace their fears and find what we have in common. Like I like to say, if you break down in the middle of nowhere, the last thing you want is to have a bunch of New Age liberals driving by. Maybe one of them would stop to give you a ride, but what you really want is someone who can (and will) get your car running again.

Who, I mean to say, is demonstrating, rather than defining, human decency?

Put another way, the thing I love about The Hunger Games is that it is such a compelling vision of where our society seems to be headed. And what I love even more is that, at this time, astrologically speaking, the potential for a pre-emptive, relatively peaceful rebellion is very up, very now. But to live in the world you want, you have to see it first.

And what will the catalyzing event be, the one that opens the door for Odonian anarchy? Cake for everyone?

One way or another, it’s happening. For instance, I just read an article about how automobile companies are struggling to overcome the fact that young people are just not driving much. As much as I love my truck, I am also well aware of what an incredibly 20th century notion automobiles are. Why would the first generation to come of age in the 21st century want to have that experience, knowing what they know?

From a timing sense, I think any astrologer will point to April of 2014 as a very actional time. I blithely skimmed the surface of all there is to say about it. Remember Heisenberg and like that.

Besides, this is a Moon article, right? It’s supposed to be an investigation of the Full Moon of January 15th, 2014, at 11:52 PM Eastern Time, when the Sun is in the 26th degree of Capricorn and the Moon is in the 26th degree of Cancer. Well, maybe it was the frequency of the 26 that informed my path through here.

For in your truth sense, your central self if not your higher self, you might just agree with this statement: Angels could give a shit about cool, or higher, or whatever. Full-time, full-throat song in celebration of being alive, more like.

Your dreams are about a changed world. You see the way it could be, and drones aren’t a part of that dream. Can you see the world you’ve always wanted to live in? What will you do, NOW, to take a step that way? April is coming.

District 12 is a nightmare. And so is The Capitol. And what I sense in the Full Moon on the 15th is an opening for We the People to get together and create a vision of a very near-future, very possible world of freedom. There is a common good. It is less extractive, less hierarchical, more cooperative. And we need to see it clearly now, because the opportunity to create it is coming very fast.

So I ask you, in the community spirit of Full Moons, and in the collective frequency of these times, to gather with your community and make plans to reach across ideological barriers now. They are just another product we consume, and can do without.

The Chandra symbol for the 26th degree of Capricorn, the Sun’s position in this Full Moon, is “A solitary grave in the midst of the cornfield.” In which we see that Death is dead, personal significance is dead, and any body, the story of any life ever lived, feeds life. Especially, at this time, if it is the story of someone who becomes fearless. Is creation in the idea, or the act?

May you let go of your pyramid, your elaborate tomb.

May your life nourish the Earth.

In Love,

Jon

Now is the time, and you are the one.

Dear Friends,

2014 is THE YEAR for business, health, love, relationships and creative vision to be infused with higher guidance coming from within our own hearts and souls and nurtured by the greater Divine Connection we all have. The vibration of “7” emphasizes positive (and profitable) integration of the material and the mystical in our everyday lives.

The frenzied velocity of our ‘push forward’ culture often demands that we ignore our inner rhythm in the rush to ‘keep up‘. During our most stressful times this can lead to a lack of inspiration, relationship concerns, weariness, and ill health.

During a 7 year, we are given intervals to slow down, go inside and nourish ourselves. We can create our own pace, the one that brings us more vitality and life, more love and joy, and more fulfillment and ease.

My NEW Practical Magic Audio Program weaves the energy of the 7 with the signature energies of each month.

The program provides you with a complete month by month map of 2014. You will receive both mystical insights and tangible suggestions for living at your tempo so that you feel more connected, more alive, and more inspired.

A powerful and supportive navigational tool for your life, the Practical Magic Audio Program poses questions and provides practical suggestions for greater ease, wellness, love, and prosperity.

As a bonus, when you purchase this program you will also have access to 12 monthly Integration Calls that will provide deeper insights through your live questions.

During 2014, it is absolutely vital to allow time for pauses, spaces for retreat and reflection, and create periods of deep inner listening to inform the bigger process of creating better relationships, optimum wellness, greater fulfillment, and generous abundance.

It takes faith to break from the cultural drive and be still. Far from falling behind, you will gather strength from a deep and powerful connection given to you at birth. Taking the time to ask what the priorities are and getting clarity about direction will allow you to move forward with more momentum.

Creating this program has been a delicious adventure of discovery for me. I offer it to you as a way to experience 2014 as magical, restorative, momentous, and powerful.

You can pre-order the Practical Magic audio program for $19.96 (another 7) for the next week by sending me an email. After January 14, this mp3 will be priced at $34.

I feel deeply blessed and grateful. I feel the vastness of what is possible for all of us. I won’t say life is ‘easy’ but I will say that the magic is all around us, waiting to share its gifts that will generate greater ease.

Thank you for being a part of this journey!

Much love and light and laughter to you and yours,

Denise

In January, we are invited to discover how we generate power and authority in our selves and in our lives. The ocean is one of the best examples of January’s 8 energy mixed with the Universal 7 Year. Some days the ocean can be calm with a surface and flat and reflective as a plate of glass. On other days, the waves move with a power that inspires awe. No matter what, the ocean is always moving with its own authority and generating power in varying degrees.

What is your relationship with your personal authority? How do you feel about being more powerful? How do you balance huge waves of movement with more quiet pauses of reflection?
