Inside this incredible eclipse, we are on the ride of a lifetime. It may seem that way to you, or it may be otherwise, but it is definitely something else entirely, in the sense that there's never been another moment like this. That lunar eclipse with Chiron in tow will be reverberating for the rest of the worm hole journey, (until the next new Moon on September 30). There is an unprecedented kind of integration, calibration and overall coming together taking place that absolutely nothing can stop (and despite the discomfort, who would want it to?)
Yesterday's energies were easily as intense as the day before that, which featured four major planetary connections. Today features two more, and they are also gigantic. It kind of seems that Jupiter in Libra is a very grand force to be reckoned with. At this moment it feels pretty good, but then, I am a Libra, so.....
Jupiter is making his way to a major new cycle with MakeMake, and this will take place on Monday. But before that happens, Venus comes together with Haumea today, another important Libran connection. The heart meets up with the new archetype for unity consciousness and wholeness. I mentioned recently the additional presence of Spica and Arcturus here, at about 23 Libra.
I talk of the via combusta a lot, especially when we get to this part of the year. You may recall that the via combusta is a part of the conscious energy field that runs from 15 Libra to 15 Scorpio, and it is a particularly rough terrain... It translates to the Fiery Way. It's rocky and hard to move through. BUT, the degrees of 22 - 23 Libra are exceptions, due to the presence of those two very benefic fixed stars. It's easier here, and the fact that Venus will meet Haumea in this territory bodes SO well for the year ahead.
I talk about the year ahead because Jupiter will spend one year in Libra. Jupiter's presence in this part of the consciousness is in itself a great blessing. I know that a lot of Virgos had a difficult year last year, despite Jupiter's presence, but I have the awareness that all the positive energies Jupiter delivered are about to make themselves known, as Mercury stations direct on 9/22, retraces his journey over the second half of Virgo and enters Libra to join Jupiter on October 11th. So all you Virgos, get ready for the big payoff.
Today also features the Mars Uranus manifestation, the continuation of yesterday's manifestation with Eris. This week is huge for Uranus Eris connections, which is contributing greatly to the over the top energies we are all encountering. Mars manifesting with Eris and Uranus goes a long way toward awakening us to the new physicality we have recently transmuted.
Here's an interesting thing that happened to me last night under the Mars Eris manifestation. I was watching TV and I saw Neil DeGrasse Tyson on a talk show. He was describing how we are made of carbon, just like everything else in the Cosmos. I thought to my Self, a few years ago I would have been intimidated by this statement. After all Neil DeGrasse Tyson is so brilliant and well-respected. But I watched MY SELF, and I realized that I grasp more than he does in this particular moment, because my consciousness has awakened to the Truth of who we have become.
He has a very expanded consciousness. After all, he lives in the cosmos too, But he appears at this moment to be stuck in what he knows, so that what IS is still invisible to him. I feel certain, however, that he will soon arrive at the Truth, which is that we have begun to be transmuted to crystal, on our way to becoming diamonds.
Here is Ellias Lonsdale's meditation for today's Venus Haumea new cycle, reprinted with the author's permission, from his book Star Sparks:
Libra 23: A tremendous boulder hovering over the ocean.
"We can feel anything and everything that is about to happen. We can see it, we can taste it, we can know just what it will be like. For we have hugged that edge, dangled over that abyss so many times that we can feel the changes and move with them and never look back.
Out here where you can see things, all alone with yourself, in the most quiet contained spaces, there is that rumbling. No matter what you do, it is getting stronger. And it keeps saying “free yourself of this, see through the illusion of that one, and get on with what we’re really doing here”.
The voice, the feeling, the pulse. The signal picked up by those who are paying attention. The urgent need to cast off so much baggage. The inescapable remembrance of being called to something that only starts when you really do have nothing to loose and no illusions left to shatter.
A contagious, irresistible momentum. Something you’re not sure where you get it from in the first place. All of us together moving upon that edge, blessed to be meeting this point.
The crisp, contained, cool, conscious sense of something so far beyond that kind of mind. The ability to hold the wildest of edges. The strange capacity to come back from anything and everything knowing we are just at the barest point of starting to be here together.
Surprising gifts. Very handy in a pinch! The knack to stay with what you do understand and to know it has its own reasons. The current bringing us back alive if we stay deep enough."
"There isn't anything except your own life that can be used as ground for your spiritual practice. Spiritual practice is your life, twenty-four hours a day."
- Pema Chodron
