Register for Christine's upcoming 12 week telecourse: Intro to Meditation and Mindfulness for Holistic Transformation. Starts this week on Wednesday Feb 1st. For more info, please email Christine at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now that Mercury and Jupiter have met to start a brand new cycle of our collective operating system, we’re beginning to assimilate the downloads and allow the newness to take root. It feels a little disorienting, to say the least, as our old tendencies and familiarities are unraveling to widen our scope of vision which is newly attuned to the infinite realm of unlimited potential. How to choose when there are infinite options increasingly available? The point now is to not choose or narrow down anything this week, simply allow the reintegration to occur organically, as we expand our capacity to connect and operate from limitless possibility instead of limitation. Once this phase is complete, our hearts will navigate the infinite realm with precision and clarity the more we open unconditionally. We’re no longer moved into action from the mind’s logic and justifiable reason. Instead, we’re using our minds to continuously expand out, giving the heart wider access to manifest our highest vision through the frequency of infinite possibility and unconditional love, ushering in the new and the unimaginable that we otherwise couldn’t even begin to wrap our heads around.
Since our individual operating systems are rooted through the mental body, which rules our communications and internal messaging system, it matters now that we take the time now to allow this massive collective paradigm shift to take root and integrate at the most personal level, through our mental body and through the inner communications at the cellular level. How we communicate with our own cells and with each other through the collective network, is being refined and upgraded this week. If we truly want to fine tune ourselves in this phase of conscious evolution, we must surrender the attachments to our old familiar ways of operating and communicating. Change of any kind requires letting go of the past, and creating space for new potential to emerge.
The paradigm shift that just occurred (and is implementing now collectively) expands our options of what’s available to choose to experience as our reality of the world. If we’ve been viewing the world as anything other than abundant and expansive, this shift in consciousness will begin opening up doorways and revealing possibilities that previously seemed to be lacking. If we continue moving forward through the lens of the old programming, we will literally overlook all that is now readily available and right before us.
Every method of personal communication is being recalibrated through our visual, auditory, and kinesthetic channels. What we see, hear, and feel, and our relationship to all of those available experiences, are now expanding into limitless expressions of possibility. We manifest and receive only what matches the frequency of our expectations, and since that realm of expectation is now expanded to include unknown possibilities and never before imagined potential, we are gaining access to a whole new world.
The process of letting go while standing in the unknown and waiting for the new to emerge can feel like a timeless gap of stillness, which can trigger feelings of insecurity, impatience, and frustration. While the urge is to step up and make something happen, which we’ve done before with great success, it takes great courage and faith to simply breathe, allow, and stretch open. When in doubt, be still. However, in the stillness, expand your consciousness. If the path or the next step isn’t 100% clear from the heart, then there is still a reconfiguration of new potential occurring. All of the reconfiguration is occurring at the mental level right now, as we integrate and calibrate to the Mercury Pluto new cycle from 1/29.
Venus starts off the week by entering her retrograde shadow on 1/30. Anything and everything that we experience at the heart level, from this point forward, will be revisited from a higher perspective of the heart as Venus travels retrograde and then reclaims her shadow in April. This is the journey of our heart’s upgrade, the total overhaul and refinement of our capacity to be moved by the purity, truth, and spiritual wisdom of the heart. The only way our hearts can tune in and be moved by spiritual wisdom is to calibrate to the language of Unconditional Love, which is the language of Cosmic Consciousness. As we elevate our heart consciousness, we elevate our entire relationship with ourselves and each other into Unity and Wholeness. It’s no longer a concept or philosophy, it’s becoming our new way of being and living in the new world.
On Tuesday 1/31, Mercury and Uranus form a stepping stone, followed by a Mercury Eris stepping stone on Wednesday 2/1 and also a Mercury Chiron resource. These are opportunities to awaken ourselves to the available features of the new mental operating system. Anything that appears to block or stop forward movement is an opportunity to practice stepping up into the new paradigm of infinite possibility, letting go of the struggle, and choosing to elevate to a higher perspective, above limitation and drama. When the path gets congested, elevate up and find freedom in the higher realms of consciousness. These stepping stones are building muscle and conditioning our capacity to elevate our consciousness and take the high road to abundance, expansion, and freedom, beyond any past perceived blockages from historic conditioning.
Wednesday 2/1 also brings us into the “2” vibration of balance. Since everything is truly brand new this year, we finally begin to find our footing and sense of solid ground as we learn to walk in a whole new terrain. Balance and unification of extremes becomes the building block for a solid foundation up ahead, and this is the theme of Venus’ retrograde cycle that takes us from a “2” month to a “4” month. We’re reconstructing our heart’s capacity to be the balance, to unify collectively, and build the emerging foundation of Love for our new Earth.
Also on 2/1, Mars is bridging Make Make while also in Great Eliminator with the North Node (Soul Star Chakra) and in intimacy (semisextile) with the South Node (Earth Star Chakra). Our physicality is aligned with divine law and order, and we are fully empowered with the authority to march ourselves across that bridge. Make Make is a higher octave of Saturn and Capricorn, which awakens our authentic leadership capabilities and our higher calling to serve and respond to any divine cause that activates our attention, without hesitation. When we’re called forth to respond in action to that higher purpose, we make the necessary choices that bring us more in alignment with our truth and our dharma, and ever karmic condition we’ve ever lived through becomes the necessary training to support our credibility and reputation in this new role. It’s all a gift, and our entire path has always been divinely on purpose.
On Thursday 2/2, Mercury and Jupiter form a stepping stone, Mercury bridges with Vesta, and Venus manifests with Varuna at the 29 degree of mastery. After 2 days of awakening our mental body by confronting the old limitations and patterns, Jupiter now offers the element of expansion of consciousness and we begin to see what’s possible with this new upgrade. The Mercury Vesta bridge activates an inner devotion to refining ourselves through this expansion, which fuels the fire of disciplined practice to see what else is possible when we sharpen and strengthen our higher mind. And the heart manifests with mastery from an infinite scope of vision, attracting and magnetizing the possibilities that resonate with highest frequency of alignment with our hearts’ truth. The historic interpretation of Groundhog’s Day is liberated as we break free from the repetitive loops and finally manifest a reality that inspires and nourishes our heart. When we allow our hearts to move us, we find ourselves living in a world of inspiration, richness, beauty, and fulfillment.
Friday 2/3, Venus moves into Aries, crossing the portal of truth between the spiritual and mental bodies, and bringing Venus closer to Mars in his home sign. Venus and Mars together are the wholeness of the divine feminine archetype. Together, they are the unification of yin and yang that creates pure Yin expression. Wholeness and purity of anything requires unification of polarity. The physical body and the emotional body together create the full expression of feminine energy. This is especially important as Venus is currently approaching Mars and the Great Awakeners, yet about to turn retrograde on her own journey of transformation first. Eventually, Venus will conjunct Mars et all in a brand new cycle, but only after the heart’s upgrade is complete. This truly is the emergence of the brand new expression of the feminine energy on our planet. It’s happening individually, and it’s showing up collectively. And we haven’t seen anything yet. We’ve seen the stirrings of a movement, but this movement is destined to become a revolution of the highest order, and the next few months will reveal that story in beautiful detail.
Sunday 2/5 is the Jupiter Station, and Jupiter officially goes retrograde early the following morning at 2am after starting a new cycle with Haumea at 24 Libra. Our social consciousness is expanding as our individual capacity to experience wholeness through the mirrored reflection connects us with All. This is the theme of Jupiter’s retrograde cycle, and this is the beginning of true unity consciousness taking root on our planet. As we recognize ourselves in the diversity of All, we claim our wholeness though expansion of consciousness. I becomes All. And as I love myself unconditionally, I love ALL unconditionally, unifying myself with divine spirit, humanity, and all beings.
The practice this week is to strengthen and refine the mental body through meditation. If you don’t already have a consistent daily practice, now is the time to begin. Take 10-20 minutes a day and find a quiet place to sit. Close your eyes and bring all of your attention to the tip of your nose, breathing in and out through your nose. Start to feel the physical sensation of breath moving in and out of your nostrils. With each breath, strengthen your determination and commitment to being present with yourself in your body. When you feel the physical sensation of breath moving through your nose, you’re present in your body. When your attention wanders, gently bring it back to the breath and start again. Let go of any agenda or any desire to do it right or experience perfection, simply be with your practice each day and allow the practice to unfold as you develop strength and connection through your observer’s mind. Having a disciplined mind allows the heart to open more and lead the way. A meditation practice is a powerful way to support yourself for the upcoming Venus retrograde cycle and the ultimate transformation and of the heart!
