Aside from being a 3:3 day of manifestation, today is a busy astrological day as well. Venus in Aquarius and Jupiter in Virgo connect in an inconjunct, or Great Eliminator, giving us the opportunity to be the mirror of unconditional Self-love by choosing between over-thinking and focusing in on our imbalances, or expanding our capacity for forgiveness, self-acceptance, Wholing and service. We know which road to take. Venus also connects in a resource to Uranus in Aries in the Virgo 8 o'clock hour (in Cosmic Consciousness), with its flashes of intuition, inspiration and insight into what the heart needs. Loving thoughts opens us up in surprising ways. Together these planetary archetypes create a finger of God with Uranus and Jupiter’s Great Eliminator, adding the need to bring wisdom to these new revelations. With Jupiter and Venus involved in this planetary picture, who knows what surprising gifts we can manifest, especially on a day like today. The Sun forms a New Cycle with Ceres at 13 Pisces, birthing the unlimited possibilities available to us when we choose to see the larger picture and regard it with Love and compassion.

When feeling our way through each day, it helps to notice everything, as everything has meaning in it. Today’s Sun/Neptune new cycle occurs on a beautiful, springlike, sunny day. It’s a day that uplifts, opens us up and makes us want to be outside. What better metaphor for a new cycle of clarity and spiritual awakening? This new cycle occurs in the (Cosmic Consciousness) Sagittarius 11 o'clock hour of clearing the decks for a new beginning! This is where we see where we are out of integrity, where we see where we are still fearful and address it, where we remember our higher purpose and surrender to it. Nowhere is this more obvious than what is playing out in the public arena (the 10th house 3D position of the Sun/Neptune conjunction)! You can’t make this stuff up!
Varuna, our highest observer’s perch of our highest consciousness, forms a manifestation (trine) with Mars, our physical bodies and the physical plane. Varuna is in our consciousness now, whether we can grasp it or not, and the fact that it is making this aspect with Mars bodes well for our ability to handle and integrate these highest spiritual energies and enables us, to the extent that we are able, to see the widest perspective from an emotional standpoint. Can we ride the emotional energies and still maintain our new perspective? I’m betting we can.

As I thought about Stephanie’s insights about the Virgo/Pisces polarity being the zoom lens that we use to discern and hone in deeply (Virgo) and then zoom out to the bigger picture of unlimitedness (Pisces), it occurred to me that we are using this lens to go back and forth in a massive clearing on different levels. There are so many downloads taking place, and in order to receive them, one must clear out what no longer serves; otherwise there is no room to receive. Perhaps others are feeling this too; I am clearing on physical, emotional and relationship levels, with more to come! The recalibrations we are all experiencing can be difficult, but they occur more easily when we have less baggage to drag around.
Today’s chart features a Mercury in Aquarius resource (sextile) with Uranus in Aries. Due to the timing, Mercury is in the (3D) 6th house of service and day to day activities, while Uranus is in the 8th house of things that involve other people, investments, divorce, sex, etc. It is also the house of death and rebirth. One could say that conversations with others through regular activities can lead to surprising insights about one’s deepest feelings about connections with others, causing a rebirth within oneself. In Cosmic Consciousness, the hours (mansions, or areas of consciousness) that Mercury and Uranus are found are opposite the signs they are in: Mercury is in the 3 o'clock Aries hour in Aquarius, and Uranus is in the 1 o'clock Aquarius hour in the sign of Aries. At the higher levels you can see the connection between them. We can use the Divine Masculine Communicator in the sign of loving your Self unconditionally to use mental discipline to choose Love instead of fear, no matter what comes up; and we have the Awakener as an intuitive resource to remind us that by choosing Love we ARE loving our Selves unconditionally. The loving thoughts we think about ourselves and others will serve to bring awakening to others. How we respond, to downloads, pains, uncomfortable truths, is based on our perspective, which we can change in an instant with a thought. Telling ourselves that we are clearing to let in more sorely needed Light makes it easier to handle whatever comes.
As if this weren’t enough, Venus begins a new cycle with (conjuncts) Pallas Athena (in this chart, in the 4 o'clock Taurus hour of trusting your inner guidance), reminding us that we attain wisdom by following our inner guidance, which comes from the Heart as our own personal embodiment of Source. By trusting it, we ground ourselves, enabling us to access the higher mental energies that are available. What amazing times!!

There is so much going on it’s hard to keep track. The Jupiter in Virgo/Chiron in Pisces bridge opened a passageway leading to lots of healing and Wholing. According to homeopathic theory, sometimes during a healing one feels worse as the remedy goes deep within and brings up that which must be cleared. I myself felt a cold coming on, feeling very drained on Friday. I had a gig with my band on Saturday, for which I pulled up all my energy, and it went well. Even partied a little. On Sunday, I lost my voice completely, although I felt ok. By Monday (the New Moon) the congestion progressed into my throat and chest, leaving me with a dry cough and a splitting headache. Remedies and hot teas arehelping, but I am still clearing. Mars, ruler of the physical body, has been making contact in a bridge with Sedna, the recordkeeper. Our bodies are recordkeepers too, storing e-motions, beliefs, judgements and trauma as pain and illness, and these need to come up for clearing as well. The more we allow these clearings to occur by giving ourselves the space to nourish ourselves through rest, good nutrition, wholistic remedies and positive energies, the more deeply they will clear.
