Invisible Interconnectedness


Because I Love the Sun pours out its rays of Living Gold pours out its gold and silver on the sea.
Because I Love the Earth upon her Astral spindle winds Her ecstasy producing dance.
BecauseI Love clouds travel on the winds through wide skies, skies wide and beautiful, blue and deep.
Because I Love the iridescent shells upon the sand take forms as fine and intricate as thought.
Because I Love the ferns grow green, and green the grass, and green the transparent sunlit trees.
Because I Love larks rise up from the grass and all the leaves are full of singing birds
BecauseI Love there is an invisible way across the sky, birds travel by that way and the Sun and Moon
And all the stars travel that path by night

Kathleen Raine

As we are about to leave 2010 to enter into the New Year – we flow into 2011 with the resonance and seeding of the Total Lunar Eclipse that took place at the Solstice still unfolding within us.

At that moment in time, the Sun and the Moon were in opposition to each other at 29 21 Sagittarius and 29 21 Gemini respectively, forming a Grand Cross of mutable energy with Jupiter conjunct Uranus in Pisces and the asteroid Juno holding the fourth angle at 26 Virgo.

Juno is the asteroid that signifies the Sacred Marriage, the Mystico Unico where the male and female are united in harmony and in balance – where the Physical and Spiritual are joined as One. Where duality ceases to conflict and the uniqueness of each is seen as complementing the whole – a seamless blending of all that is.

Although there is great tension within this chart it is seeking to unify opposites – to bring us all into another level of awareness through embracing and embodying the unique gifts we each possess so that we might share them with all.

In many ways the Lunation cycle and Eclipses are the tidal ‘read outs’ of the emotional and mental maturity of us all.

Since time began the Moon has been orbiting the Earth and gathering and distributing the group consciousness patterns out across the airways. Each of us embodies these resonances and then distributes them through our auric field into the subtle invisible field and so it is down to each of us as to whether we assist in the harmony or disharmony of the whole.

For we are all linked within this intricate Invisible Web – and over the next months as this Lunar Eclipse unfolds within each of us we have the opportunity to share, our particular gifts and talents our Joy, Grace and Peace with all that we meet and where the ripples of those meetings will flow out way beyond our local neighbourhood.

This interconnectedness which is so beautifully expressed in the extract from the poem by Katherine Raine sums up all that we are being asked to remember and to recognise – to remember that each of us has a profound effect upon the whole and each of us can lighten, enhance and expand and Shape Shift the Fabric of Life – for that is what we were born to do.

I wish us all a Joyous New Year full of unexpected delights and experiences – living life to the full in harmony and happiness for 1/1/11 is a time that is requesting that we begin to radically express that Unity and Wholeness which is the Truth of who we are.

Jupiter and Uranus in Aries -
or - A Ride on the Wild Side

On May 28th Uranus will move into the fast track lane of Aries, followed quickly by Jupiter on June 6th. Arian energy seeks to express individuality, inspiration and instant results. Put Uranus with this energetic and you have a potent mix of drive, determination and potential disfunction. Since 1996 Uranus has been passing through the altruistic energy of Aquarius and Pisces. When Uranus moved into Pisces in March 2003 we had the two outer planetary bodies of Uranus and Neptune in mutual reception.

These last seven years have given us all the opportunity to grow beyond a selfish. 'I win, you lose' mentality, to a more mature awareness that we all need to work together towards a collective common goal. We have been passing through a 'seeding' time, a time to look at the collective potential of how we might, from one level work together to bring about a freer, fairer Society. Uranus in Pisces, and Neptune in Aquarius, from another level lifts the lid off what is deemed to be possible. These energies individually and together ask for a fresh inspirational look at our potential on Planet Earth. They link us into worlds beyond the solid third dimensional structures of Saturnian parameters. Whether we have been aware of it or not, our subtle energetic systems have been bathed in a vibrational energetic that refines, expands and uplifts our individual levels of consciousness.


From a metaphysical level, Uranus and Neptune have been gently working on the subtle system of each of us, through the pineal gland, expanding our boundaries and vision - switching on lights in the deepest recesses of our brains. It has been a potent time, but how is the seeding going to unfold through the next seven years as Uranus passes through Aries? Jupiter, as we know, expands and increases any planetary energy it contacts and so the first year of Uranus in Aries, with Jupiter in close proximity, is likely to be full of the unexpected as the Uranian quality of spontaneity, change and sudden disruption is intensified.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
In the same manner there can be breakdowns or breakthroughs. For we are all being asked to bring a fresh approach to our lives, to expect the unexpected and to live in the moment - to allow for new ideas, new insights to unfold whilst discerning how we might integrate this impulsive energy into our lives without throwing out the baby with the bathwater. For at the time of the Uranian ingress into Aries, Saturn is in opposition and we are being guided to find a pathway which finds a balance between rugged individualism and consideration/service to others.
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
This potential for rugged individualism/fanaticism is underpinned with the Pluto square to Uranus - so Saturn and our individual humaneness and balance are required to bring the highest expression of this highly charged energetic.
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Each of us is a unique expression of Source and as such each of us is truly an individual note within the musical spheres of the Cosmos. What a gift and yet it is precisely this diversity which creates such division on this planet. Rather than seeing the gift and preciousness of this diversity, there is still a deeply embedded fear of that which is 'different'. Still a desire to project out fear onto another, rather than taking the responsibility to be a clear conduit without any desire to point a finger, or cast judgment. This suspicion or fear of the unknown creates a shadow, an climatge ofdistrust, which prevents us from truly 'seeing' the other.
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
In the UK elections it is fitting that a coalition government is to be the basis of power over the coming months. Here different beliefs, policies and colours are being fused for the 'good of the Country' - party politics are being suspended, realigned to creater a greater whole - a more beneficial outcome.
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
This in many ways is the key for us all and the underlying message of this chart - how can I bring my individual talents, gifts, insights and energy and offer them for the benefit of the whole?
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
The Moon at the time of the Uranian ingress into Aries is at 14 Sagittarius - the degree of the Great Attractor - the point in space which is bringing the Andromedan Galaxy ever closer to the Milky Way Galaxy. As the Moon links to the Group Unconsciousness, then it would seem that there is a greater plan being unfolded through this chart - there is a downpouring of energy that requires a maturity of Spirit and a degree of courage, if we are to utilise this potential and step into the Light that we are.
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
So let's take hear, a steady breath and a leap of faith and let's see what we can each create that is full of inspiration, joy, value and purpose during these upcoming seven years - for it is time to spread our wings.

The Field of Dreams – Chiron into Pisces

As we move through April and May the planetary line up is bringing in Fields of Change or more accurately, perhaps, The Field of Dreams.

Over the last five years Chiron has been passing through Aquarius. During this time we have had the ability to understand and heal our unconscious link to the group consciousness – to recognise how we are all interconnected through our thoughts and feelings and how through this grid of consciousness we experience life.

As Jupiter and Chiron made conjunctions to Neptune in Aquarius, it brought a heightened awareness of the healing power of the mind. This high resonance, malleable and compassionate planetary synthesis allowed our thoughts to be mirrored back to us, so that we could clearly see our individual imprint upon the grid, encouraging us all to realise the power of our individual mind and how our thoughts influence not only our bodies, feelings and actions but also affect the Group as a whole.

On 20th April Chiron will move briefly into Pisces until August, when it retrogrades back into Aquarius until middle February 2011, when it will return to Pisces until April 2018.

When Chiron is in Pisces there is the desire to merge into Universal Consciousness to become one with God, to lose all boundaries- to dissolve back into the Ocean where all is One. It has a deeply mystical resonance that also has the potential to distort and delude yet it encourages the highest aspiration and inspiration

The last time Chiron was in Pisces was from April 1960 through to beginning 1969 – a decade which saw a revolution in thinking, music and art – a Generation of Flower Power blossomed, psychedelic music embraced all and the desire to Make Love not War, became the ethos and motivational focus of the young.

There was great idealism, but also drugs, glamour, confusion and delusion plus a childlike innocence and naivety coloured this period. Dreams of peace, and a desire for a more gentle open Society were inspirationally beautiful yet did not manifest during the following decades.

As the Beatles sang out across the airwaves, ‘All You Need is Love’ we were unaware of the need to deeply embody and integrate Love with both Power and Wisdom.

Now 50 years on, many of the young dreamers, are now Grandparents, Elders of the Tribe, and we once again have the opportunity to manifest our highest ideals - but this time we need the idealism and vision to become Earthed, so that the highest potential can manifest and unfold through the following decades. To this end we are greatly assisted with Pluto in Capricorn, at this point in time, as it embodies the potential for both power and manifestation to occur.

In the ingress chart for Chiron into Pisces, Pluto is trine the Sun and the Sun is making a sextile to both Chiron and Neptune – suggesting the potential to bring great creativity, healing, power and growth of awareness during this seven year period whilst Chiron is in Pisces.

Saturn retrograde in Virgo forms a Yod to the Chiron Neptune conjunction sextile the Sun, and is pivotal to the chart and to the unfolding of this energetic through time.

Saturn asks for focussed intent and the degree of 29 Virgo has as its image ‘Totally intent upon completing an immediate task a man is deaf to any allurement’ The keynote for this degree is ‘The total concentration required for reaching any spiritual goal’

In Dane Rudhyar’s Astrological Mandala he states ‘The last message of this hemicycle of ‘Individualization’ is that on all decisive occasions what must be done has to be done so intently that no outer voices can penetrate the mind, still less the Soul…’

He goes on to say ‘Attention may be distracted from the Now by a voice from the past, glamorizing some old memory. The outer doors of perception and thought must be closed so the soul can complete its Conquest of Illusion’.

We are all, to a greater or lesser extent influenced by the Group Consciousness, but it is in moving beyond this field that the evolution from human to Divine consciousness can emerge.

To quote Sol Luckman, ‘The evolution from human to Divine Consciousness involves healing duality and its legacy of karma and disease at the cellular and atomic levels’.

This is the potential that has been offered through the Jupiter Neptune Chiron Conjunctions and it is this focussed understanding and belief that can and will manifest through the next decades if we take this period of time to seed this intent, wholeheartedly and unreservedly.

For we are here to break the limitations that have held us for generation after generation; we are here to release our true potential and we are here to serve the collective consciousness to grow and expand into our future selves.

Next month I will be writing about this potential as Uranus moves into Aries followed a few days later by Jupiter – so hold onto your hats – we are in for an exciting ride!!
