For February 1-7, 2016
Welcome to the beginning of February! After an intense month of what felt like "surgery" on our mental operating system, we're now emerging from the temporary disorientation and heading boldly into a month of integration, practice, and balance. This is the week we begin to explore and experience the newly awakened and upgraded features of the higher mind. Wisdom requires practical application, and that's the theme of this week.
In the movie "Groundhog Day", Bill Murray continues to repeat the same cycle of events over and over again and can't seem to wake up into a new day, new reality. Similarly, the karmic wheel keeps repeating and repeating, fueling itself with old mental attachments and reactions, both blind and obvious. The only way to stop the cycle is to wake up to our Selves and choose the observers mind, the higher mind, and let go of any personal attachment to suffering and clinging. The observer is neutral, balanced, refined, unattached and undefined...just as Mercury's archetype is neutral, androgynous, highly evolved.
We have undergone a massive fine tuning and sharpening of our communications equipment and our ability to receive the most subtle sensations, vibrations, and frequencies...now our practice and integration requires equanimity, balanced non-attachment, and the letting go of old primal and instinctive thoughts and mental reactions, most of which are so hidden and buried below the surface that we don't even realize they're there.
When we observe ourselves in any event, we can study our relationship with our physical sensations, starting with the breath. Any experience that elicits a reaction, no matter how small, activates a reactionary thought. That reactionary thought evokes an emotional response, and the physical body manifests both as dense matter, karmic debris. That karmic debris is the seed of our next manifestation, and is planted into our consciousness (often at the unconscious level). Even if we are emotionally strong enough to respond from a higher consciousness and overpower our thoughts with our hearts, if our minds aren't balanced and pure, we will remain on the karmic loop. It takes a disciplined mind to remain quiet and still, without judgment, to simply observe the fullness of our own physical sensations and karmic patterns, especially when our egos are tagged, and allow the roots of old residue to come up and clear...without reacting.
Our new operating system gives us the enhanced opportunity to use all of our physical sensations to purify our minds, thereby purifying our physical manifestations, and purifying (and eventually eradicating) our karmic patterns and cycles. When the mind becomes so focused and aware, it can actually serve as a karmic clearing device, or a sharp tool, to extract the old embedded subconscious visceral patterns.
The prime time to clear karmic debris is when it's being activated, when it's awake and engaged, like a live wire. If we react, we invite that current of energy to plug in and it expands. If we remain calm and balanced in the mind without reacting, the live wire may sting with discomfort for a moment, or even a while, but it can't connect it's charge, and eventually it diffuses. When we choose to respond with compassion, love, acceptance, and patience at the emotional level, the root of the disturbance can be cleared from within at the deepest level.
Our minds have a new ability to explore and penetrate beyond the visible realm, and many of our embedded karmic roots are deeper than the conscious mind could perceive before. We have access, but it requires neutrality and unconditional Love. We cannot expect to clear the most painfully deep karmic attachments if our minds are spinning in judgment or gripped in fear, or worse yet, disconnected from the experience all together.
This week delivers some amazing aspects to support in our integration work. On Tuesday 2/2, Groundhog's Day, the Mars Pluto resource assists us in allowing the deepest unseen karmic roots hidden underground within our physicality to be fully seen and accessed. This is a great day to become aware of those embedded and buried patterns that continue to replay over and over again for the purpose of empowerment and freedom. We have the opportunity to recognize our shadow and not run away, but instead be liberated by our awareness.
On 2/5, Venus meets with Pluto at exactly the same degree where Mercury last did on 1/30, aligning and attuning herself with the same upgraded intelligence. This translates to a highly sophisticated heart intelligence that's capable of generating an even more mature quality of compassion and unconditional love at the purest frequency, in harmony with the purified and refined equanimous mind. We will need this high frequency of balanced support as we pierce even deeper through the dense layers of karmic debris, the layers that are like solid bedrock below all the layers of soil and water.
On Saturday 2/6, the Sun Uranus resource brings the spotlight of our consciousness on an awakening event. Remember, the event itself is irrelevant, though it may be uncomfortable. It's the opportunity for reaction that matters, or better yet, the opportunity to observe non-reaction and hold a space of compassionate love. No matter what is occurring.
This is important because later that same day, the Mercury Jupiter manifestation creates exponential expansion from our mental frequency. Make sure your mind is focusing on the frequency you wish to manifest from. If the focus is on an uncomfortable outside event, that event will expand in your mind. If the focus is within, on your Self, your own conscious awareness will expand. And like clockwork, what comes next is a beautiful Venus Uranus stepping stone, an opportunity to take a giant step up into the newly calibrated higher heart space, and allow the mind/heart integration and balance to occur. For those who are aware, ready, and alert, this is a moment for evolutionary breakthrough and balance.
Once again, like clockwork, Sunday 2/7 brings a Sun Mars stepping stone, bringing consciousness to the physical body in another opportunity to take a giant step up onto the higher road, up and out of the karmic trenches, transcending our physicality and stepping into unprecedented new ground...and preparing to step into the New Moon on Monday next week. We end the week with a Venus Sun semisextile (intimacy) which feels like the sun kissing our hearts, and our hearts opening to receive the brilliant light of our consciousness.
The practice this week is to pay close attention to anything that elicits a reaction, whether the source feels internal or external, physical or emotional. Remember that nothing can trigger a live wire unless that live wire is present within. Take the focus off any external object, event, or person, and use the highest observer's mind to go deep within in order to find the root of your own live wire. As you do, practice holding a space of compassion, Love, and unconditional acceptance for your Self, whatever is there, no matter how painful or uncomfortable it may be, no matter how long it lasts.
For January 25 - 31, 2016
After navigating an intense week of spontaneous inner and outer storms, we finally slow down to enter Mercury’s Station, accessing a refreshing still point to pause, catch our breath, and take a good look around. The word “profound” doesn’t even begin to describe our recent retrograde journey…we’ve just undergone a massive mental body renovation project with total removal, overhaul and re-installation of our brand new operating system…and it’s not done yet. This weekend will provide the ultimate reboot and finalization of our enormous transformation.
The fact that we still can’t fully wrap our heads around what’s occurring is a good thing, we’re not supposed to be in our heads at all about this. Communication of the highest order doesn’t come from the head, it comes from our ability to intuitively receive and interpret subtle frequencies and vibrations that are moving throughout the entire body. Communication requires presence, which has to be felt and experienced. Frequencies are felt through our senses, and the logical mind doesn’t feel, it can only process and think about a feeling in comparison to previous experiences. We’re stepping into brand new terrain now, and every cell in our bodies carries the awakened intelligence and sensitivity to move us there. It’s increasingly important to surrender the ego and the desire to understand in order to remain in the neutral observer’s perch at all times. Our capacity to observe and receive messages is expanding exponentially, and t’s exciting to witness so many amazing shifts and changes just by breathing alone!
On Monday, Mercury stations at 15 Capricorn, accessing the Executive Director in a wide open channel with Source. What a perfect opportunity to remain present and grounded while listening for inner guidance through the crown chakra. When traveling by car through an unfamiliar city, we rely on the guidance of our car's navigation system. That voice of directive instruction is critical, and we tune out all other distractions in order to hear it clearly. Now is the time to listen wholeheartedly for the voice of the Cosmic Self, and let go of all other distractions. This is the start of a brand new relationship, and all relationships require impeccable communication. Interestingly, we’re completing our 1st month of the new year this week and transitioning into February, a 2 month, which holds the vibration of relationship energy. Every completion takes us into a brand new beginning, each segment builds upon the next, and every transition this year is calibrating and preparing for the full embodiment of our awakened Cosmic Self. The roadmap is exquisite and the journey is evolutionary.
The entire week is leading up to the 3rd of 3 Mercury Pluto conjunctions, which occurs on Saturday 1/30. This is the big one, the final reboot that brings us fully online and activates live communication between our 4 lower body systems, our Cosmic Self, and the infinite realm where all possibilities and dimensions are accessible. This is the moment we’ve been waiting for. We don’t need to physically cross over to resurrect and reunite with the infinite realm…this upgrade plugs us in here and now, allowing us access to everything, within and without, including the memories held deep within our physical cellular imprint that may have been disconnected or subconsciously suppressed in our bodies. All of that information is coming available to us now. The truth is, it always has been, but the layers of dense debris made communication challenging with our old wiring system.
Later on Saturday, the heart gets an extra calibration with a Venus Neptune resource in Capricorn and Pisces. As we go live with our newly overhauled operating system, communication is brilliantly restored at the heart level and we’re able to clearly decipher messages that may have be buried or muffled from deep below the surface. Our hearts are where our authentic voice resides, and our hearts are also calibrating at the 5D level in union with the infinite Cosmic Heart. Now is the time to add our unique voice to the collective choir of awakened hearts as we joyfully sing the frequency of Love to each other, the planet, and the cosmos.
The week ends with a perfectly timed Mercury Uranus stepping stone, a powerful lightning bolt prompting our immediate full mental body wake up, almost like a crisp snap of the fingers following a hypnosis session. The mind has journeyed far and deep, and has been completely uprooted, upgraded, and rebooted. Any disorientation, dizziness, or jet lag starts to clear as we’re ready to step forward into a new week, new month, and new phase of integration and implementation.
With such an increase in our communication and channeling ability, many are experiencing acute auditory sensitivity, dizziness, amplified sound disturbance, and static. As we’re entering the infinite universal mind, we also have access to all thoughts, all conversations, all of the overflowing and overwhelming vibrations, textures, and background noises in our abundant universe. We certainly don’t want or need to tune into all of that, so it’s important to intentionally choose the frequency we do wish to plug into. If we don’t select a channel that resonates, we can easily fall victim to the loudest or most dramatic frequency that captures our attention. Conscious discipline is critical right now, and a daily meditation practice is necessary.
We’re learning so much about frequency and the infinite potential to communicate via sound and vibration. In 5D, Love is the Law, Love is the Language…and Love is the frequency of our universe. The more consciously we attune ourselves to that frequency, we’re nourishing the relationship between our lower 4 body system and our higher self, in harmony with Cosmic Law and Order. The vibration of Love is abundance, health, vitality, joy, creativity, expansion, unity, freedom, and peace. The practice this week is daily meditation and daily calibration to the frequency of Universal Love.
For January 18 - 24, 2016
Everything has shifted, we are in the midst of a total rewiring process, and we are now just past the halfway point of Mercury’s retrograde cycle, We’ve made it over the hump and are gaining momentum towards a very big finale. This week marks the climactic conclusion of the profoundly uncomfortable Eris storm of 2016.
This week will see a big final storm clearing with several major aspects. Now is a good time to check in and observe…how do you weather an intense storm? Do you have the courage and stamina to sit in the observer’s perch, in the still point of your heart, and trust that you are safe and all is well, while having faith that whatever gets blown away, uprooted, or wiped off the map was meant to be and serves a higher purpose to deliver you to higher ground? Or do you white knuckle it, drenched in fear and sweat, begging the universe, God, or some external authority to take it easy on you and lighten up the intensity?
Without judgment, just notice how you’ve navigated this current storm system so far. This is the time to let go and TRUST, to allow the storm to rage in order to clear away all the patterns and limitations that need to clear, to find the sweet spot of release and surrender in the eye of the storm, allowing the intense energy surges to amplify in momentum while patiently knowing that the path will be revealed soon enough. Remember that nothing can ever happen that isn’t meant to happen, and we never face any challenge that we aren’t fully prepared or equipped to handle.
The current storms are mirroring the places we’ve already been, the chaotic turbulence of the pain and trauma we’ve created and stored in our minds. The winds of change are storming through, as forces of nature, calling forth our surrender to a higher calling, beyond our lower mind’s ego control. In the path of a tornado or any unpredictable storm cell, there’s nothing a human ego can do to alter the course of events, other than surrender to the higher Self, in harmony with the entire infinite universe. Resistance produces suffering. It is time to let go of all the lifetimes and the many ways that we’ve ever resisted or denied the truth of who we are, the authentic calling of our higher self, and our true nature. This is the beginning of the grand return home to ourselves and our ultimate communion and reunion with Source…and we MUST allow it.
The week starts off with some HUGE energies on Monday the 18th. Just after midnight, Venus and Jupiter form a stepping stone, which literally lays the foundation for the entire week ahead, establishing a context of expansive heart consciousness. When we access this stepping stone, we place ourselves right where we need to be in order to experience the weeks' events from the observer’s perch within a newly awakened and wide open heart.
In any major storm, there comes a point where we grab our loved ones and seek shelter. Imagine this stepping stone as an elevation into our heart space, infinitely spacious and expansive enough to provide respite from the outer turbulence. When we seek shelter and refuge in our own hearts, we can trust that all is well, no matter what occurs, we are safely held in Universal Love. There’s nowhere to go outside of ourselves, and there’s nothing to fear when we reside in our hearts.
Monday is a busy day full of aspects: by 6am (EST) Mars and Neptune form a manifestation (trine) enlightening our physicality (body, home, environment, planet). By 8am, Mars and Jupiter create some “stressors”….minor events that cause enough friction to activate momentum and awaken our sensitivity, rendering us deeply present as we expand even more into our physicality. By 10am, the Sun and Saturn connect, and our inner guidance mechanism is activated.
The Sun enters Aquarius on Wednesday 1/20 and we experience a big collective shift in consciousness. The focus is divine Self Love as we open unconditionally, allowing ourselves to be seen, fully revealed and naked to the world. Aquarius energy is cutting edge, bringing forth the future, ushering in new consciousness, facilitating spontaneous awakening and transformation, in service to humanity. We are moving from the Capricorn archetype of the earthy Executive Director into the free spirited, independent, futuristic visionary, highly intelligent Aquarian energy that also helps us to be emotionally detached and neutral as the great powerful observer.
Uranus is the dispositor of Aquarius, and Mercury is exalted in Aquarius, so the Mercury/Uranus stepping stone on Wed (the 2nd of 3) can be a hugely beneficial gift this week that feels very comfortable and familiar, bringing a sense of peace in the midst of escalating discomfort. It gives us solid footing and powerful traction to navigate the unexpected shake ups.
Friday holds a Mercury/Pluto conjunction, the 2nd of 3 (the first occurred on Dec 19th that kicked off this cycle of 3) The higher mind and all of our communication systems are undergoing complete resurrection and realignment right now, and we are right in the middle of the process.
Allowing the mind to go beyond any realm of familiarity, comfort or security, allowing it to reach the edge of known landscapes and cross over into the darkness while trusting in the calibrations that are taking place, without understanding or analyzing the process. The mind continues to be challenged to unravel and let go of what feels safe and logical, as the ego flares up with bold desire to protect the illusion of sanity and safety that keeps us small. It’s not logical to leap so far “out there" without knowing the measurable outcome or certainty of our return "back here", and right now our mental bodies are not only journeying retrograde, towards Source (away from ego), but we’re also flirting again with what feels like the death and resurrection of the mind. What is really dying is the ego’s control and limitations of how far and how much we’ll allow our mental bodies to calibrate and activate. (for much more from Christine on this topic, please click here).
On Saturday, Venus enters Capricorn at 3:30pm EST, and the heart steps into a position of leadership and authority, escorting us to the FULL MOON in LEO at 8:45pm. We have an opportunity to reflect and respond with heartfelt gratitude and humble appreciation of the infinite blessings from this month’s journey, including the recent lessons, challenges, breakthroughs, and losses. We are not who we were one month ago.
We’ve been recalibrated, our internal landscape has been radically redesigned, and our outer world is undergoing rapid transformation to reflect the upgrades. Everything is moving at the speed of light, and this Full Moon is a perfect time to pause for a moment to hold sacred ceremony, acknowledging and celebrating all that has and is occurring.
Every period of transformation requires a letting go of what was in order to clear space for new possibilities and potential. Even though we’re heading for higher ground, the choice to let go of our attachments to the past can be emotional, and this is a perfect time to create an intentional space of honor, compassion, and reverence for ourselves and each other.
Sunday is a quiet day providing some much needed stillness for reflection and integration. Mercury is stationing, turning direct at the beginning of next week, Eris also begins her slow forward movement, and the storm is finally over. Take a deep breath in, and let everything go.
The practice for this week is to remain fully present in the still point of the heart and find refuge within. Do your best to keep your thoughts, words, attitudes, and actions aligned with the highest vibration of Love, and let your heart continue to expand and open as you find peace and comfort within. No matter what is occurring outside, find shelter in your ability to trust and let go. The storm will soon be over, and a whole new landscape will be revealed as we embark on the next exciting new chapter.
For the week of January 11 - 17, 2016
The energies are supercharged this week and the downloads are off the charts. So much is shaking up in the world (and our bodies) as frequencies are calibrating, fine tuning, and aligning, and information is flooding in.
Oftentimes when rapid downloads come through a computer or operating system, the system overloads temporarily and has to completely shut down to reboot. This Mercury retrograde is producing those kinds of dramatic shut downs and reboots through all of our lower 4 body systems. The surges of energy are so intensely strong right now, it doesn’t take much to short circuit our old wiring and our nervous systems, or trigger a fever, virus, or sneezing attack. The good news is that the reboot process is amplifying our ability to communicate efficiently within ourselves and with our higher Cosmic Self in alignment with the divine blueprint. Anything incongruent is being stripped away and recycled. Similar to gutting a house in a total renovation, we are gutting out the old wiring systems and completely upgrading and installing something new…think state of the art copper wiring to better enhance our crystalline features.
Mercury is in the heart of his retrograde journey right now, and any connections, relationships, and networking opportunities that we weren’t quite ready to step into previously due to outstanding self worth issues are clearing up now, recalibrating, and those connections are resurfacing and circling back around to revisit and plug in. It is not possible to miss anything that is meant to occur, but we can only prolong the amount of time it takes for that event to manifest. Now is the time to say Yes to ourselves, wholeheartedly, and trust in the messages of the heart. The current themes are inviting us towards the expression of our highest truth, and we can’t deny them anymore. We can’t hide, shrink, play small, or pretend not to know our potential any more…this is the moment of alignment that sets the stage and the foundation for the great meeting of Uranus and Eris that will occur this summer.
Speaking of Eris, she takes the spotlight this week as she finally begins moving direct again onTuesday 1/12 at 22 Aries. We’ve been hearing a lot about Eris lately, she’s the great female inner awakener, destined to meet her counterpart Uranus, the great male awakener, for the first time ever in human consciousness this summer to shake things up inside and out. And anyone who hasn't “heard” of Eris has undoubtedly been “feeling” her. No one on the planet is exempt from the inner agitations, stirrings, disruptions, blow ups and volcanos that have been building in intensity since she stationed last week. We’ve been sitting in the still point of our innermost dissatisfaction and cravings for change until that irritation starts rubbing and ripping apart the old threads of attachments like velcro ripping off the limitations of our skin from the inside out until we finally wake up, shed the skin like a snake, refine ourselves and move forward without delay, concern, or doubt. Sometimes we have to sit in the discomfort and feel the friction long enough until we shift out of our heads and allow ourselves to be moved by a more authentic navigation system…the authority of our awakened heart.
Thanks to Venus and her new cycle with Saturn, our hearts are holding the authority and are ready to lead the way. Venus forms a manifestation with Uranus on 1/12 as the heart continues to receive calibrations like little electric shocks that jumpstart and awaken the truth and clear away old patterns. We have so much movement and support from multiple manifestations (trines) this week, including the Sun/Jupiter on 1/13 and Mercury/Jupiter on 1/14. Mercury makes the halfway mark on Thursday 1/14 as he meets up with the Sun. Imagine all of our newly upgraded wiring systems being activated with light codes. Get ready for some even more impressive frequencies, providing some much needed fine tuning of the innermost messages that are awakening within as our nervous systems become like crystalline high frequency antennas. There are many other subtle aspects this week, providing the constant buzzing and humming of momentum that drives us forward and inspires us to pick up the pace. We’re ramping up, and this is the most exciting time to be alive!
This supercharged week ahead will inspire every spiritual enthusiast who is here to experience the complete awakening and resurrection of humanity and the planet, and this is only the beginning. Fasten your seat belts, get out of your head, let go of anything you think you know, and let your Self be danced through the cosmic orchestration that’s occurring right now. It’s quite breathtaking.
The practice this week is to surrender while staying grounded. Take a few moments each day to connect your feet to the Earth, close your eyes, and find your balance within. Find your footing, and remain in your heart for the week ahead. The mind can’t even begin to understand or control the events that are occurring, so don’t even try. Take the extra time to dot your i’s and cross your t’s, and be impeccable with all commitments to your Self and others, providing a solid foundation to walk upon. Eris surely has some big surprises in store for all of us this week!
