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.
It is hard to know where to begin. As I write this many of us are in lock down, unable to get together physically, in our effort to slow the spread of disease caused by the Covid-19 virus. This situation is forcing all of us to rethink how government, healthcare, financial and social systems are operating. The Saturn Pluto new cycle is dismantling these systems in a very visceral way. Our day-to-day lives are disrupted. As the 4th month, April affords us the energies of a new foundation upon which to build a different structure for a brand-new world. Yet we know that sometimes a building has to be demolished and a new foundation secured in order to rebuild an even more solid structure. We are in that process now.
The energies of ‘4’ bring stability and order; for example, the 4 elements that make up physicality (fire, air, water, earth), and the 4 sacred directions that orient us in space. In Cosmic Consciousness, the 4 etheric bodies (spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical) form the essential components of our existence (as described in the Lower Body System in the CC Corner).
In Cosmic Consciousness, Taurus is the 4 o’clock hour of Conscious Obedience to our inner guidance system, which guides us and provides the stability we need whenever we follow it. It can only be heard when the mind is calm. Venus is the dispositor of Taurus; it is in our heart center that our inner guidance is found, and when we connect with it we expand our capacity to love with the higher mind. When we resonate with the Truth of this guidance there is no doubt or fear; we Know what to do.
