For June, 2016
We are evolving, whether we are ready or not, whether we are aware of it or not. The formidable planetary energies of June reflect the transmutation of our consciousness and our collective evolution.
The month begins with stepping stones between Saturn in Sagittarius and Jupiter in Virgo (the archetypes of our changing social consciousness); between Saturn and Neptune in Pisces (our inner authority and our capacity for confusion or enlightenment); and between Neptune and the Sun in Gemini (veils lifting), exact on June 1. The planets located in these signs form a Wisdom Cross, which is like standing in the intersection of a 4-way street, except that we have the capacity to go down any and all of them at the same time. The Cross includes bridges between Saturn and the Sun and Jupiter and Neptune. As the Sun moves out of the Cross other planets move in and share their lessons and knowledge, including Vesta, the Nodes, Mercury and the Moon. All month long we have available to us the gifts of our inner higher authority, unlimited faith and capacity for enlightenment, and expanded consciousness and wholing, gained through the strengths we have accrued through repeated attempts to broaden our consciousness. Wisdom is love in action; we must come from the heart in all that we do.
In addition, Mercury in Taurus, the Soul Star Chakra (North Node) in Virgo, and Pluto in Capricorn create a very grounded Grand Manifestation in Earth signs as the month opens. Our newly transformed mental operating system is helping us integrate the abundant downloads we receive. Jupiter and the Soul Star Chakra will be traveling together all month, and with Pluto in an ongoing manifestation (trine) to both there promises to be much expansion of consciousness coupled with a breakdown and removal of what is not working or needed. Surrender is required here, to clear a path to the positive energies being downloaded.
This month there are some days where the energies come in bunches. For example, on June 3, Venus makes a stepping stone with Neptune, the Sun bridges Saturn, Ceres forms a Great Eliminator with (inconjuncts) the Soul star Chakra, Venus bridges Saturn, and Venus and the Sun form a new cycle! Any one of these would be major, but having 5 events in one day is unprecedented. This is a day to tap deeply into our authentic Selves, coming from and following the heart, with compassion and faith that we are birthing the world we want to live in. And that’s just the beginning! The Sun and Venus travel within 1-2 degrees of each other for the first half of June, an invitation to shine our Light on Love!
There are two powerful Moon events this month. June 4’s New Moon is attended by Venus, at 15 Gemini, a World Axis point; and part of the ongoing Wisdom Cross with Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune. Located in the Taurus hour of Cosmic Consciousness, we are seeding a new beginning in how we learn to trust our inner guidance and use it to come from Love. We can use this newly honed inner guidance to deal with our changing social status as we move from separation and self-interest to unity consciousness and coming together for the good of all.
June 20 is another power-packed day with lots of aspects, featuring a second Full Moon in Sagittarius, called a Blue Moon. We are mastering the lessons begun on May 21 with the first Sag Full Moon. This time, with Venus (the heart) and new planet Quaoar (where thoughts begin) in attendance, we are learning to master our responses by allowing Love to enter our thoughts every time we get overwhelmed. Mars inconjuncts (forms a Great Eliminator with) Uranus/Eris/Ceres; there is plenty of disruption in the air; we are birthing a new world and labor is uncomfortable, even painful. This full moon teaches us to embody our deepest truths and remember that we come from Love and we are Love; it’s the only thing that makes sense. Drop into the center of your heart, keeping your focus and breath there. Mercury, dispositor of the Sun, is conjoined with Vesta; the Moon’s dispositor, Jupiter, is conjunct the Soul Star Chakra, and both are part of the Wisdom Crossroad. On this day, Mercury forms a bridge with Saturn, giving us the capacity to speak with authority. This is also the day that the Sun enters Cancer, bringing our focus from our multifaceted minds to the inner harmony and quiet flow of our heart center. In Cosmic Consciousness, this balancing of mind and heart, divine masculine and feminine energies, occurs at the core of our being, where we allow them to move through us, freeing us to receive the higher energies with open hearts and minds. Quite a lot going on!
No discussion of this amazing month would be complete without an emphasis of the new cycle between Uranus and Eris. The last time these two awakeners met was in 1927, three years before we became conscious of Pluto. Uranus looks to bring new ideas and fresh perspective into our lives where we need to change; resistance only brings sudden shakeups, like a kick in the pants. Eris works more subtly, creating discomfort until we realize the situation is untenable and we move to change it. On June 8 these two change agents come together in a new cycle that will continue into 2017 and reverberate for years to come. Ceres will be nearby, midwifing, helping us to resurrect ourSelves from the ashes of the old. Change is not a bad thing, but so much of it in so many places brings fear to the forefront. Yet this conjunction is bridged by Haumea, providing more Divine Feminine mothering energy at the other end. Haumea brings to us the knowledge that we are already united together, we just need to see and respect each other as parts of the whole. As much as Uranus/Eris’ disruption makes us feel fearful, separate or fragmented, Haumea reminds us of our unity, and how each of us (and each part of ourSelves) is valued equally without judgement, contributing a necessary part to the Whole. These disruptions serve to remind us to consciously choose a loving perspective, which in turn is mirrored back to us on the physical level through other’s reactions. We are all in this together; let us stand in the middle of the Uranus/Eris/Haumea bridge, holding hands, space and Love for each other.
June 9 is yet another intense day with many major aspects. The Sun and Venus maintain their new cycle (conjunction) and form a resource (sextile) with Uranus/Eris, another indication to keep Love front and center in the midst of whatever happens. As if that wasn’t enough, Mercury begins a new cycle with Sedna, the Cosmic Recordkeeper, a clarion call to allow Sedna’s wisdom to percolate into our minds through our inner guidance system. With Mars bridging this duo, and Chiron sextiling it, we now have the resources with which to access this wisdom for healing and mastery of our consciousness at a higher level, and the capacity to express this wisdom on the physical level. Our minds and bodies are adapting to our new consciousness. And let’s not forget Pluto’s exact Soul Star Chakra manifestation: more multidimensional transformation! All in one day!
And yet, there’s more. On June 12 Neptune enters his retrograde station, giving us the impetus to go within, integrate our new consciousness, and come from the heart when confusion and disorientation reigns. Here we go slowly, trusting that all is perfect, as it all comes from Source. On the same day, Mercury ingresses into Gemini, bringing a creative spark to our thinking and communicating. Through being impeccable with our words, we may provide the spark of enlightenment for someone else.
Watch for Venus’ ingress into Cancer on June 17, in the hour of unconditional love, reminding us to acknowledge and feel all our feelings, especially the uncomfortable ones, and to love ourSelves through them all. On June 19, Mars forms a Great Eliminator with the Uranus/Eris duo; be mindful of your body and its needs. Chiron stations retrograde on June 26, giving us the space to go within and see how far we’ve come and what still needs to be healed. With Sedna as a resource, what we have mastered will forever be a part of us.
At the end of a busy month, on June 29, Mars stations direct, preparing to manifest on the physical level the rewiring and realignment garnered these past weeks. Mercury moves into Cancer, adding his Divine Masculine energies to our emotional body; helping us to understand our emotions, discern if those emotions are ours or others’, and bringing loving thoughts into our hearts. Not a bad way to start a new month!

For May, 2016
The month opens on the bubbling cauldron stirred by the upcoming union of Uranus and Eris, which will happen in the next act, as we know. Their eruptive awakening energies affect every aspect of life in a context of liberating instability and empowering enlightenment. The Aries-Libra polarity is highlighted and displays the magnitude of the scene: on one side of the bridge Uranus and Eris, on the other side Haumea, who is holding the space for the global ascension at play. Her all-embracing cohesive presence keeps all parts together, maintains their essential integrity and enhances their malleability, whilst providing the process with a reassuring continuum.
A grand Earth trine (manifestation) comes front and center. The Sun is in manifestation (trine) with respectively Jupiter in Virgo and Pluto in Capricorn, both of which are retrograde, that is moving towards source. Jupiter’s expansive pull to connect with higher Self and Pluto’s relentless urge to transmute what no longer fits generate a creative tension inviting us to consciously and fully embrace our divine humanity.
Consciousness, mind and heart (Sun, Mercury and Venus) are grounding in Taurus and attuning to Gaia’s upgraded frequencies. Mercury, who has just turned retrograde, is conjunct Vesta, the divine flame within and Sedna, the memory keeper of all that happened since the beginning of manifestation. As Mercury stations retrograde, he bows and connects with Vesta, indulging in devotion for the Self, refraining from conjunction with Sedna, postponing the recollection of the entire story until later.
Recognising the Universal Self takes owning one’s Individual Self fully or to put it differently, access to the macrocosm is via the microcosm.
In the Sagittarius corner of the stage Mars, the physical body, and Saturn, the social body, keep performing their retrograde duet, displaying the merging of personal and social identity. Their elegant and masterful performance shows the countless expressions of unity and the empowerment of Self in embodying one’s own purpose and honoring humanity as one’s own body.
The Taurus New Moon occurs on May 6, as part of a massive stellium in Taurus. Mercury who stands in the middle of the stage witnesses two important reunions: as the Moon connects with the Sun on one side, Vesta unites with Sedna on the other side. Mercury’s vast still presence allows him to access and integrate both events at once: the embodied consciousness on Earth and the divine wisdom of the origin.
Its attuning to both energy vortexes is supported by Uranus-Eris in Aries, the leading force of a planetary picture known as a boomerang, in which Haumea is the tail and the Earth Star (South Node) and Mercury are the wings. In this scene, strategic placements feature a geometric pattern, which facilitates the release and final clearing of residual limiting beliefs related to time bound karma. Time is an illusion, karma is an illusion. Enlightenment is now, if we choose to acknowledge it. In Taurus, everything is sacred geometry, manifesting the laws of the Universe.
When Jupiter turns direct on May 9 after a four-month retrograde journey, he starts slowly re-stepping on the ground he had covered previously. In Virgo, the emphasis is on more wholing until we can fully own who we are. On his way forward he forms a stepping stone with still retrograde Saturn. Jupiter will have recovered his retrograde shadow in August, when Saturn will turn direct as well, completing their 9 month long three-part dance. These huge powerful bodies, together the body of humanity, are the living matter of our upgraded social consciousness. The stepping stone acts as a hormone inducing another stage of labor in the collective birthing of Unity consciousness on Earth, as the grand trine they form with Venus in Taurus suggests.
On that same day, May 9th, the Sun and retrograde Mercury bump into each other in Taurus and that highly energized super conscious package activates a resource with the Earth Star (karma) and a manifestation with the Soul Star (dharma). Unity consciousness is here and now: at any moment the intelligence of the now defines our action, and at any moment we can change options, directions etc. and tune in with the harmony of the whole. Our action, also known as karma, mirrors our understanding of the global order, dharma.
suspended in awe
New stage set: the Sun enters multifaceted Gemini on May 20, presenting us with myriads of aspects of Self at once. Makemake, who holds universal law and order and with which the Sun is in an exact trine, has retrograded to 0° Libra once again. The Sun and Makemake’s hieratic communion on 0 degrees of two air signs, Gemini and Libra, respectively mental wisdom and physical power, opens a new era.
A clear sense of Self and instantaneous recognition of Self in every aspect of life is emerging. Reality as we perceive it is a reflection of ourselves. The pristine purity and untouched potential of that shining light on stage and the intricate order behind the scenes.
A great eliminator between Jupiter in Virgo and Ceres in Aries highlights the scene and amplifies the silent interaction. Their benevolent supportive presence enshrines the epiphany: motionless, we hold our breath, a miracle is happening!
be the light
The Sagittarius super Full Moon is on May 21, in exact conjunction with Mars. In the Gemini-Sagittarius polarity, air and fire, the rising breath of awakening is activated.
The connection of the Moon, the embodied consciousness, with Mars, the physical body, attests the reality of an intimate intuitive relationship between spirit and matter. Which resonates with the Wesak or Buddha Moon, commemorating Gautama the Buddha, the enlightened one.
And the bridge with the Sun conjunct Vesta shows that awakening the body means full spiritual consciousness embodied in a human shape and devotion to it. Enlightenment is now on Earth!
What is striking here isn’t the obvious: sense your body response as you watch the slow parade of the Sun-Vesta and the Moon-Mars moving towards each other.
Mercury, depositor of the Sun and Vesta, will turn direct the following day and finalize the deal. Mercury is in a manifestation with Jupiter in Virgo and forms a great eliminator with Saturn in Sagittarius. It benefits from Jupiter’s magnitude and from Saturn’s authority, currently a great eliminator could be called a great creator: notice how this impacts on you !
That day the Moon transits in Sagittarius translating the light of Mars to Saturn, from the individual to the collective body. With both planets being retrograde, and Jupiter in a stepping stone with Saturn, it takes another personal and collective recalibration, which you won’t fail to notice.
We are part of the show we are watching, Enjoy every bit of it!
For April, 2016
We will remain in the worm hole for another week, yet an era is definitely over. We can feel that the old world is gone, and we begin to realize and decipher the magnitude of the changes which will keep unfolding throughout the Spring, until the long awaited conjunction of Uranus and Eris at 23 Aries in early June.
The spotlight is currently on Eris and any planet aspecting or transiting her and receiving its ground shaking upgrade and activation.
Eris is at 22 Aries, in an exact bridge with Haumea at 22 Libra. Haumea is the feminine archetype keeping the manifold facets of the manifest world together and supporting the cohesion of the whole. The inner shake of Eris forces any aspect of our consciousness still disjointed or holding shadows of separation back to the vibrant unity and oneness at the origin of our being on Earth (the Lemurian era).
Eris is also in a bridge with Lilith at 24 Libra. Lilith is the second focal point of the elliptic orbit of the Moon around the Earth. It holds long hidden ancient wisdom about the Earth as a creative playground. Lilith was traditionally associated with dark feminine rebellious seductive potentially dangerous powers, of which the snakes are emblematic in the collective unconscious. Lilith actually relates to the differentiation of the masculine and the feminine and the origin of creation. In biblical mythology she was created together with Adam (unlike Eve who was subsequently derived from Adam’s rib or side). One of the chthonian (earthly) archetypes, Lilith actually represents the primordial dark matter from which the world originally emerged and the creative and reproductive powers associated with Mother Earth. Eris brings the original myth back to light inviting us to fully (re)integrate the the value of embodiment on the Earth.
The double bridge between Eris and Haumea conjunct Lilith helps us discriminate and clarify convoluted distorsions of the belief systems we have held for millennia. Far from being a cursed place away from paradise, the Earth is the actual place of our enlightenment and return to unity (pardes = garden of unity).
The month of April opens on a double boomerang, with a huge focus on the Pisces to Taurus section of the zodiac and its counterpart in Libra.
Haumea forms a great eliminator (quincunx) with Chiron at 22 Pisces and Earth Star (South Node) at 21 Pisces and Sedna at 24 Taurus, including the Eris-Haumea bridge, this is the first boomerang. Chiron and Earth Star suggest a radical update of the idea of karma (traditionally law of cause and consequence, literally action) long associated with the wheel of samsara or entrapment in a never ending cycle of rebirths on the same plane. 5D perspective is that action is now and that by choosing love over fear now, we are back to Unity now. In the perspective of Sedna’s collective record keeping our expanded vision finds a vast field to settle into. Balance is in the middle of the bridge, where Haumea and Eris connect and unite on higher ground, allowing us to access to their 5D anchoring.
Lilith forms another exact great eliminator with Venus and Ceres at 24 Pisces and Sedna at 24 Taurus, this is the second boomerang. Venus and Ceres joint powers birth unity consciousness into our heart and sign its final upgrade to stabilised frequency of Love, held in Sedna’s vast cradle. Thereby the Earth becomes the acclaimed place where Christ consciousness is successfully embodied en masse and the incubator breeding greater miracles to come.
During the coming three weeks the rulers of the mental, spiritual and emotional bodies will successively transit Uranus then Eris and give allegiance to the archetypes awakening us to the New Order. Mercury opens the the procession, followed by the Sun, the Moon and Venus: on April 1 Mercury has just transited Uranus and translates Uranus light to Eris (anticipating their actual conjunction), the following day it transits Eris. In the context of the above boomerangs, our mind is undergoing a recalibration to the frequencies of Unity consciousness.
On New Moon day on April 7, the Moon conjuncts with the Sun at 18 Aries, both in a stepping stone with Pluto at 17 Capricorn, and then transits Uranus and Eris, definitely bridging the gap between embodied and higher Self, death and resurrection, giving access to the experience of Oneness in a human body.
On April 9, the Sun transits Uranus and the Moon Sedna. The awakening of our Higher Consciousness coincides with our individual consciousness embracing the entire field of our soular system. The Sun will then transit Eris on April 12, highlighting again the bridge with Haumea, and restoring the experience of universal wholeness and integrity.
Finally on Scorpio Full Moon day on 22 April Venus transits Uranus, to reach Eris two days later on 24 April. That day Mercury in Taurus translates Vesta’s light to Sedna: higher intelligence implies devotion to the cosmic plan and complete surrender to personal and collective experience of enlightened mankind.
Meanwhile Mars, the ruler of our physical body, cruises in Sagittarius. In its retrograde shadow, it will go retrograde on April 18 to recover its current position mid August when he will conjunct with Saturn. Both Jupiter and Saturn are currently in a retrograde cycle and upgrading our social consciousness to the global template of ascension.
Another defining moment is the ingress of Ceres in Aries on April 14, framed by the solid Earth grand trine formed by Mercury and Vesta in Taurus, Jupiter in Virgo and Pluto in Capricorn. Higher mind and the light within, together with real Self and the invisible world witness the birthing of the personal, social and global New Order. Ceres exact bridge with Makemake on the Super Galactic Center on April 18 promises unprecedented light on our multidimensional being and still to be unsealed potentials.
As the Uranus-Eris conjunction draws nearer, the tremendous tension building up generates an orchestrated volatile and explosive climate, necessary for the final completion of the quantum shift.
Please welcome our newest member of the Cosmic Path family, Sylviane Gianina, who has been a cherished student of Cosmic Consciousness while an important Teacher in her own right. I am thrilled to have her writing the monthly column for us. Her intuitive grasp of Cosmic Consciousness is enlightening and impressive.
This month we reach another crucial shifting point in the ensoulment/embodiment process that began at the Winter solstice of 2012.
A huge Light bridge has opened, created by Jupiter in Virgo opposing Neptune conjunct Ceres in Pisces a few days ago. It is lifting the veil created by residual blocks and patterns that have been preventing our ascension and reconnection with Source. What we experience as a veil always results from a fear-based local experience of ourselves. Choosing to focus on our non-local Self instead dissipates the veil instantly. Due to the raise in frequency we are now able to access our Higher Self easily.
Virgo is the sign emotional wisdom and the light shed on the Virgo-Pisces bridge shows that wholing equals surrendering to spiritual Love, nothing else is required. No matter what happens choose Love and surrender to it, that’s it!
Apart from inviting us to recenter ourselves and focus on our Higher Selves, thereby reconnecting with our limitless Being, recent massive downloads of Light codes have activated parts of our Selves we had no recollection of until now. We are coming back to Oneness, Love, Source
The Sun is currently in Pisces, as part of a stellium including Ceres, Chiron and the Earth Star Chakra (South node), and Mercury and Venus will join in in the coming weeks. A specific recalibration of mind and heart to Self or Love frequency happens at the Solar eclipse (Sun conjunct Moon) on Mrch 8th and 9th, which will be synchronised with the physical body at the Lunar eclipse, when Mars will fully integrate the newly upgraded frequency through a resource (sextile) with the Moon and own it through a manifestation (trine) with the Sun.
The Sun has just transited over Neptune, it will cruise over Ceres, Chiron and the Earth Star Chakra before hitting the vernal Equinox on the 20th of March. The Light transmission of the Sun from Ceres to Chiron dissolves definitively the illusion of healing. That is to say, at the moment the Cosmic Self is unveiled, we Know its very essence and perfection are eternal and can’t be altered or wounded ever. Similarly, as the Sun moves on from Chiron to the Earth Star Chakra, the deep-seated belief that the Earth is a place of sorrow and suffering de-manifests instantly. The recalibration is complete on the equinox day, when the stellium in Pisces is held together by Mercury, ruling the mental body, on the one end and Venus, ruling the emotional body, on the other, both of them owning jointly the upgraded potential of all the archetypes they embrace : divinity, creative power, dharma to be embodied on Earth.
The Pisces New Moon on 8/9 March is a Super Moon and also a total Soular eclipse, magnified by the exact bridge with Jupiter in Virgo and transmuted by the resource (sextile) with Pluto in Capricorn : focal point is merging with our Divine Self = Source
While Jupiter keeps holding the bridge with Ceres, Chiron and the Earth Star Chakra, another bridge opens when the Sun enters Aries on the Spring equinox and connects with Makemake, representing the universal order, in Libra, and also conjunct the Super Galactic Centre, the Source of our supercluster Laniakea, taking us straight back home and providing a full perspective on the cosmic order and future developments for humanity.
This Aries-Libra full Moon bridge is a liunar eclipse that determines the manifestation of the new order on a personal and collective level. Once we truly own our divine spark, full empowerment ensues and we can bring the highest frequencies down to Earth and embody our unlimited divine Selves. A phenomenal creative power is available for us to inseminate light into the world. This enables full embodiment as well as planetary ascension.
When the Sun enters Aries, it brings the essence of the cycle just completed into another dimension. On the Earth, the Spring Equinox it is the beginning of a new cycle, one level higher on a spiral of evolution. In Cosmic Consciousness, it is the initiation (entry into) the mental Portal of Truth, in which spirit begins its descent into matter by precipitation, a process by which a substance is transmuted to a greater level of density. Consciousness translates the essence of the limitless field of Pisces into the highest vision of Aries, bringing it one level lower into our human self.
This year’s Spring Equinox combines both view points. The end of something we know well and the manifestation of something else we have no clear idea about yet. And as the Equinox, the balance of day and night, of feminine and masculine, … happens in the middle of a wormhole, between the Solar and Lunar eclipses, the dimensions on which this is happening and of the implications for us are still beyond reach
On the day of the partial Lunar eclipse on 23 March, the Sun in Aries is conjunct Mercury, who rules the mental body and disposes of Uranus and Eris in Aries. It holds an enormous igniting power, just the impulse we need to kick off the process of embodying our divine Selves fully, starting with the enlightened mind, courtesy to Makemake, conjunct the Moon in Libra, and gradually slipping into our enlightened human Selves. The Sun will then move towards the tremendous awakening energy building up in Aries : Uranus and Eris, bound to come together for the first time (since Eris’s disruptive power became accessible to us) in early June before the Summer Solstice. This is another story.
Another facet of Self-recognition happens on Maundy Thursday (the day of the Last Supper as well) on 24 March. That day Chiron is in exact conjunction with the Earth Star Chakra, with Ceres mid-wifing. Maundy is the washing of the feet : Jesus washes the feet of his disciples, a humble task normally performed by servants, and says ‘what I do to you, you should do to one another’. He pours infinite Love (Piscean water) onto the feet (associated with Pisces) of his beloved followers, allowing them to remember who they are: One, Love, Source.
From that moment on, our entire body is symbolically Christened, and holds Christ frequency. Now we are becoming conscious that we are One, Love, Source (and always have been), the Light infused with this consciousness will spread all around the world.
