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.
Welcome to February, the 2nd month of an already tumultuous year. February carries the frequency of the ‘2,’ bringing us the feminine energies of compassion, balance, service, diplomacy, receptivity, adaptability, courage, and unconditional love, all the elements of Pisces. It resonates with partnerships and relationships of all kinds, including those we have with all parts of our Selves. It can reveal polarities that separate us, or offer ways to build bridges across those differences through awareness, intuition, higher perspective, and heartfelt love.
The ‘2’ represents duality, polarity, reflection, and balance. Duality is the perception of otherness through which the One can understand itSelf. It is what results when Source energies descend into the 3rd dimension. Duality provides contrast and differentiation; there is no Light without darkness, up without down, and so on. Electricity is the positive Male (yang) principle, and magnetic attraction is the negative Female (yin) principle. Both are necessary for creation. Balance between masculine and feminine energies produces ascension, which brings us back to Source, the Oneness behind everything.
In Cosmic Consciousness, Pisces represents the 2 o’clock hour of Spiritual Wisdom; where we go beyond (imagined) limitations imposed by the ego in order to ultimately realize our unlimited potential, our Oneness with Source, and our connection to one another. We face the fears and doubts thrown up by the ego’s desire to keep us separate. We master our Selves in the process; it is Divine Love activating through us.
