HERE’S MORE COSMIC CONSCIOUSNESS FROM Shelly Leal, Jan Finley, Christine Clemmer, Sonreya, and Vivian Small!
With Mars now in his retrograde shadow, all kinds of new themes are emerging. They have to do with our physical well-being, (ie Covid), with the health of our planet (Climate change), with being able to coexist in physical peace (all that unrest), and with many many other circumstances that are popping up at this time. The perspective has shifted, We can see things from a different vantage point, and that means there’s a shift coming up. The NEOWISE comet is now a thing of the past, and that means we must be aware of a powerful change that is sure to come (that’s usually what comets do). This Mars cycle will take us through to the new year, and we all know just how much “history” is on tap to be made within that time period.
It’s important to begin to recognize Mars much more fully in his new capacity. as co-dispositor of the Divine Feminine Self. He has a vast heart, and when he is open to using it, his actions become righteous and justified. Can you think of anything we need more right now? As a Divine Feminine archetype that is masculine, it’s important to LET Mars do his thing now. to wait and see what his energies bring about.
Meanwhile, today is the last day for Venus to recover her retrograde shadow, so she will be wrapping up many circumstances that involved the heart. After today, she enters a new chapter, and begins to make her way toward a new cycle with the Soul Star (dharmic) node. That should bring a huge change of heart, and one that is headed in a more fulfilling direction than what we’ve been witness to lately.
Today features three aspects, all of which involve the Sun, the Black Moon and Salacia. The Black Moon has begun her journey back over the entirety of Aries. This is exactly the same journey Mars is now taking through his retrograde shadow, and that means Lilith should be able to show us plenty about what Mars has in store.
The Black Moon manifests with the Sun, which always goes a long way toward lighting things up and giving them new life, and the Sun manifests with Salacia, Neptune’s female counterpart, who dances and sings her way through all the nooks and crannies of the depths of the Divine Feminine consciousness. It seems there’s a lot that is capable of being revealed, if we can remain open and allow our hearts to see.
The Black Moon continues her communion with Salacia today, giving us plenty to ponder over regarding the way that amazing new archetype works for us. One thing is true about Salacia, she carries very profound wisdom, and being the master that she is, she knows how to deliver that wisdom in ways we can accept and find embracable.
Here is Ellias Lonsdale’s meditation for today’s Black Moon Salacia Communion (#19), reprinted with the author’s permission from his book Star Sparks.
Aries 7: A double-headed eagle, the heads face in opposite directions.
(It’s redundant, but surely there’s a reason!)
” Seeing something you can only view from two divergent vantage points. Keeping in your sights a polarity which can become either tremendously complicated or paradoxically and infinitely resolvable into a whole different unity. But compelled to see and know and witness what never can be reduced to any given perspective or facet whatsoever.
Being made to open vulnerably to the outside and the inside pulling us apart. Needing to be exposed at this level of intensity. For we must recognize the emergent facet which only comes when we have exhausted the usual round of explanations, interpretations, evaluations, and we must again meet directly just what is there.
The trauma, the wounding, the violation. The healing, the wholeness, the reconciliation. The issues and the ropes, the beliefs and the projections. The discovery of how to find everything within us and all of it useful, necessary, and just what evolution needed us to be part of and awaking within.
The endless pros and cons which are so persuasive, yet not at all. For we sense with rare acuity that the land of “both and” is claiming our allegiance and demanding that we burst open any and all remaining praise and blame, right and wrong, should have and shouldn’t have. It’s all in a day’s planetary awaking across the full spectrum of manifest phenomena.
We have a potential here for something far more. We are knocking at the door of a future worth living in. The only thing needed to enter and become conversant with open-ended mysteries is the slaying of the dead mind. A small thing to ask for such a great reward.
We are granted a form of seeing which begins where others leave off. We become so in tune with what comes through all factions converging that we lose that hard ancient edge.”
