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.
As the 3rd month in this ‘4’ year of 2020 new vision, March holds the space of expansion, abundance, self-expression, inspiration, joy, mastery, and creativity. All these elements are needed to build a solid foundation for the new world. The ‘3’ represents the energies of the triad, the Trinity, a sacred triangle (formerly trine) where all parts work together harmoniously, creating a portal that brings forth manifestation of desires through allowing the descent of Spirit into the mental plane. There Source-based faith in action (Pisces) becomes consciously directed intention (Aries). The active initiating force from the “1” combines with the receptive, germinating energies of the “2,” resulting in the “3” vibration of physical manifestation. The triangle is the ancient symbol for the element of FIRE. We talk about the creative fire within, that when expressed outwards, spreads warmth, light, and inspiration. Aries, the Divine Spark of Creation, is a Fire sign.
In Cosmic Consciousness, Aries represents the 3 o’clock hour, where we enter the mental etheric body and experience its power. It is the sign of Conscious Discipline, the place in our energy field where we bring in Love purposefully and diligently to activate the higher mind, which is Christ Consciousness. This activation requires focusing golden Light on the heart chakra, elevating its vibration into the higher mind, aligning it with Love, and opening a gateway for the divine spark of something new to manifest. By disciplining our mental process and choosing only loving thoughts and words, the mind-heart balance begins to activate, paving the way to Self-realization. The more we realize the true nature of the Self, the greater our capacity for right action, a manifestation of the mind-heart balance. This is a month to let go of expectations, trusting our intuition to allow what has already been birthed on some level to come through.
