Welcome to July! As the 7th month, July holds the energy of the ‘7,’ which represents everything esoteric, holy, and spiritual, and what is hidden from view. According to John Mitchell, the 7 is “the number of the World Soul, which existed before creation and the formation of sacred geometry.” It symbolizes perfection and completeness, both spiritual and physical.
In Cosmic Consciousness the 7 o’clock hour is represented by Leo, the middle sign of the Emotional Body, where the mechanism of Love requires the practice of looking for the blessing in everything, regardless of how it appears. Leo is disposed by the Sun, which gives life force and warmth as well as Light, shining on all equally without discrimination. “Good” and “bad” are judgments of the lower mind, which weigh us down and prevent us from seeing the bigger picture. The wider view from any observer’s perch allows us to see the unity behind every polarity, the Truth behind all deception, Light shining behind the darkness. When we choose to focus on the similarities that unite us rather than the differences, we build bridges that allow us to reach each other where we couldn’t before. We forge new roads.
We are here to hold the space of Love, not to change minds. Our gratitude-- for every person who crosses our path (even those who frustrate us), every lesson learned, every talent or skill we possess and challenge we face, every experience that brings us to this point-- is the greatest service we can provide. Seeing everything and everyone as an expression of Source reminds us of the unity behind it all. It activates Love in others’ hearts and gives them permission to access their own abundance. Since we are not privy to the divine plan, trusting that it’s all perfect frees us to find the positive in every situation-- essential in these unprecedented times.
Together we arrive at June, the 6th month and midpoint of 2020. In Cosmic Consciousness, the 6 o’clock hour represents emotional power. It is the place where the masculine mental quadrant comes together with the feminine emotional quadrant at the core of our being along the vertical axis (at the 5 and 6 o'clock hours), at the opposite end of the physical and spiritual realms (the 11 and 12 o’clock hours). Balancing mind and heart at the Cancer Portal of Truth allows us to ascend to a new level of unified Source consciousness. It is here that we add depth of emotion arising from the heart center to our mental operating system; when we allow these emotional energies the freedom to rise up and mingle with our higher Mind, we create space for an authentic, conscious response. We think with the heart and love with the mind, making the unconscious conscious and bringing it into awareness. We see with Love’s eyes.
The key words for the ‘6’ vibration are reflection, balance, harmony and integration. It is a very feminine frequency. The geometrical form generated by the 6 is the hexagon, and its internal form is the 6-pointed Star of David: two perfectly balanced, interlocking equilateral triangles. They represent the uniting of heaven and earth, spirit and matter: the stars in the sky reflect the atoms that comprise physicality, symbolizing the axiom as above, so below, as below, so above.
Astrologically, the Star of David is comprised of 2 Grand Manifestations (trines) that form a ring of 6 sextiles, resourcing all the energies in a balanced way. Such a planetary picture represents various energies working together in harmony, manifesting something powerful into the world.
Welcome to the 5th month of 2020! May holds the energies of the ‘5’, the number of life, creation, and growth. It is related to humanity and it speaks of bringing forth life and living things into human reality. The number 5 offers the gift of Life Force. It is the inexhaustible flow of vitality and abundance that is available to us any time we need it. In these times we would do well to connect with it.
The energy of the 5 is very powerful and creative; it has everything to do with the Golden Ratio and the spiral of life that produces our DNA. It represents human consciousness. The pentangle is the primary symbol of Life and the living spirit. The geometry of the 5 reveals how we can be an individual and yet part of the greater Whole. Throughout nature one can find the ‘5’ signature everywhere: in 5-petaled flowers, apple and pear seeds, even the human body. In astrology, 360° divided by 5 equals 72°, which in Cosmic Consciousness is considered a spiritual and karmic aspect, indicating an inborn gift or talent that manifests as a result of work done on the spiral of past lives.
In Cosmic Consciousness, Gemini represents the 5 o’clock hour of wisdom of the higher Mind. The Gemini energy field is the part of us that makes connections, communicates, collects information and integrates it all so we can expand our knowledge. It lifts us up beyond duality, transcending it. Gemini consciousness never rests; like a crystal ball it’s always turning, reflecting all facets of light, while the center remains still. Here is where we integrate mind and heart, resulting in right heart-based action. We will need Gemini consciousness as we create and expand every area of our lives this month.
