Register for Christine's upcoming 12 week telecourse: Intro to Meditation and Mindfulness for Holistic Transformation. Starts Feb 1st. For more info, please email Christine at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The week ahead promises to deliver epic shifts that will alter the course of our lives and how we perceive ourselves, each other, and our sense of belonging in the world. Regardless of how things appear on the surface, we are unifying and wholing, and unification requires conscious awakening, self awareness, and unconditional self love in order to see every perspective, beyond the blind spots, as our hearts stretch wide open to embrace it all. We are birthing new consciousness and it’s happening Now.
The Jupiter/Haumea - Eris/Uranus/Ceres bridge will be an ongoing theme this entire year, and is literally the birthing canal delivering us to our awakened consciousness, at the personal and social levels. A birth canal requires dilation when activated, which is uncomfortable if not debilitating during moments of contraction and expansion. Expansion of anything requires stretching beyond the current known structure of comfort and stability. Expansion requires a ripping apart of fibers and threads so that the innermost space can expand and stretch open. That ripping apart experience can be painful, and our instinct is to contract in the unexpected pain sensations associated with expansion.
When we first confront the sensation of ripping apart muscle fibers and threads of fear based limitations, it can bring us face to face with our deepest perceived wounds and karmic fears…those are the very story lines that created the fabric of our belief system and comfort zone to begin with. Our true nature is infinite. Our condition is limited and defined. We are conditioned by our fears, by the pain and suffering of our history, and by the subconscious patterns inherited from our ancestors. We can also be conditioned by the defined experience of our known strengths and gifts. When we find what works, we tend to attach ourselves to repeating those patterns, chronically, which can also limit an even bigger unknown expression of our infiniteness.
As we evolve and expand our consciousness, we confront those threads, and stretch them apart…which can create a pain sensation of temporary discomfort, at times evoking karmic memories of anger, violation, betrayal, outrage, and historic suppression. It’s the unraveling of our karmic roots. If we react with judgment or resistance to the unraveling that’s occurring, our very reaction creates another condition that reinforces the original wound and anchors it in. If we try to suppress or detach from what’s unraveling and expressing, we only increase the painful inflammation of energy. It’s so important to remain centered and deeply present through the unraveling process in order to get through to the other side.
Reactions are karmic. Intentional responses are dharmic. We respond from the integrity of our current state of consciousness. We react from the subconscious triggers of our unresolved emotional body, which is our past. And we can’t tell the difference if we’re not fully present and self aware.
Our most important work to do right now is to clear the unresolved emotional residue from our cells, and be responsible for awakening and expanding our awareness and consciousness. We must learn to be deeply present with ourselves, moment to moment, in a space of unconditional self Love, in order to even see what’s unraveling, and embrace it. Misguided emotional energy can move us into action that isn’t in alignment with our higher truth and purpose, even though it may feel magnetically strong and desirable. As we allow that energy to clear, the magnetic charge also unwinds and releases. Truth, however, never releases. Truth emerges with clarity as the distractions dissipate.
Moving deeper into the sensation of resistance or discomfort requires softening, trusting and allowing…which opens the space, clearing the debris while moving our attention deeper into relationship with the source of the feminine polarity, which takes us into the unknown shadow of suppression. This is the path of connection to Mother Earth, the divine source of Yin energy at our root, and the collective karmic tank of our Earth Star Chakra, that is speaking up loudly to get our attention, to be seen, heard, and respected. What’s been suppressed wants to express, and is the key to unlocking our fully awakened consciousness. Beyond the shadow of suppression is the light, the connection point where the root chakra unifies with the crown chakra. They are infinitely One, the merging point between yin and yang.
Universally speaking, regardless of physical gender, everyone and everything contains the full spectrum of yin and yang, feminine and masculine aspects of energy. In our 3D experience, Masculine (yang) is perceived as light, while feminine (yin) is perceived as shadow. We express in the light and suppress in the shadow. We can see fully in the light, which is where our awakened consciousness lives, while the unknown is mysterious, invisible, hidden, where our subconscious lives. It’s also where our potential to manifest and create comes from, the invisible realm. If our feminine Yin energy is consumed by the subconscious heaviness of karmic emotional patterns from our collective history that has been denied full expression, we can’t fully open ourselves to experience the unknown creative potential that wants to be realized and manifested now.
The divine feminine consciousness is revealing now. There is deep wisdom, and there is collective karmic clearing that needs to release from the shadows of our energy field. The only way to release is to be held in an environment of unconditional Love. We each are being asked to confront our own historic tendencies to deny or disconnect from that what we don’t understand within ourselves, or the tendency to suppress what we fear we can’t handle or don’t want to look at. We’re even being asked to examine our tendency to only want to celebrate the light of what’s working, what’s great, what’s powerful and strong, and embrace the struggles, the suffering, the challenges. We’re being asked to honor both our darkness and our light, and to courageously expand into our awakened wholeness, fully empowered.
This week ahead is all about Venus and the Heart, paving the way for the New Moon in Aquarius on Friday, the Chinese New Year, and the all important Mercury Pluto conjunction on Sunday.
Monday 1/23, Mercury and Neptune form a resource and Venus forms an intimacy aspect with Uranus, which is a very subtle and soft aspect of awakening, a gentle "aha moment" of clarity to see something from the heart that wasn’t known or recognizable before. The Sun is in an intimacy aspect with the South Node (Earth Star) and also in a great eliminator with the North Node (Soul Star). Again, another subtle aspect of shining light into the karmic container to gain insight and clarity, allowing for a choice to be made regarding intentional evolutionary action moving forward. Mars is in an intimacy aspect with Ceres, which helps nourish any intense physical pain body sensations we’ve been experiencing through this intense awakening and deliverance period. And the Sun manifests with Make Make, as our awakened consciousness expands with divine cosmic law and order. These gentle aspects nudge us without activating resistance or defensiveness, which allows for an easy alignment with the greater flow of universal intention.
Tuesday 1/24, Venus conjoins with Chiron at 22 Pisces in a new cycle of self mastery through our old perceived wounds at the deepest core of the heart, which is important because Venus is about to enter her retrograde shadow. Our core issues are those sensitive threads we came here to master and teach, and our personal journey of wholeness unleashes the authentic wisdom, vulnerability and credibility to do so. So often, we view our wounds as the brokenness of our past, our weakness to overcome, and the scars that we bury and hide. But they’re not really wounds at all, they are the divine openings that invite us to discover our fullest potential, as we whole ourselves through mastering unconditional self Love. And when we do, we evolve and transcend into our greatest expression of beauty and magnificence, realizing there was never anything broken at all. This passage shows us what we’re made of, and reveals our empowered mastery through wholeness.
On Wednesday 1/25, there’s a Venus Eris intimacy, a Chiron Eris intimacy, and on Thursday 1/26 Venus forms a great eliminator with Jupiter. More subtle aspects to gently awaken the core issues of the heart for the purpose of expanding through unconditional self Love. The more attention we place on our own hearts and our Selves, the more we expand our consciousness and evolve.
On Friday 1/27, Venus is in a stepping stone with Saturn, giving the heart definition, structure and clarity as we step into the New Moon in Aquarius and the Chinese New Year. Aquarius energy ushers the future into the now, and the defined structure of our hearts will support our capacity to take ownership of what we don’t fully understand yet as our hearts stretch wide open to embrace the unknown future.
This is the year of the Fire Rooster, which is truly remarkable. The rooster awakens All from slumber in the dark early morning, just before the sun rises, delivering the important message of what’s coming; a new day. Fire is the element of spirit, and manifests change that occurs through destruction, purification and creation. We burn what we no longer need as a way to recycle. We burn the physical to release the spirit. Fire is the element used in deep karmic cleansing ceremonies, and the violet flame is the most powerful transmutation tool available for humanity, delivered by St Germaine, who presides over the Aquarian Age and the Aquarian Hour on the Cosmic Clock.
The Aquarian New Moon happening on the exact entry point of the Fire Rooster New Year activates the violet flame and begins a new cycle of awakening to Unconditional Love, Spiritual Love, and Universal Love among All. This IS the pivotal shift that wipes the slate clean.
That same day, Mars is on the World Axis, preparing to move into Aries just after midnight on Saturday 1/28. Mars represents our physicality and is dignified in Aries. As Mars moves “Home” to his proper place, he begins moving towards the Great Awakeners. The physical dimension is the final expression and manifestation of energy. By the time something shows up in the physical body, the energetic vibration has already been occurring in motion through the spiritual, mental, and emotional bodies. The awakening of our physical body and physical world IS the final stage, and has already been at play behind the scenes for a while now.
In Cosmic Consciousness, Aries is the sign of Mental Power, and the further importance of Mars meeting the Awakeners in Aries signifies the awakened realization of the Mind/Body relationship. There is no separation between the two, in fact the power of the mind ignites the spark of creation that is reflected in the manifestation of the physical body. They are mirrors, and the only way to shift the body (and shift our world) IS to shift the mind.
Quaoar moves into Capricorn later this evening, which literally shifts our paradigm into a whole new expression of spiritual power, linked directly through the crown chakra. This profound shift occurs just before Mercury’s significant new cycle with Pluto tomorrow, the rebirth of our entire mental operating system through the higher mind.
Saturday also delivers a Venus stepping stone with Ixion, Venus manifestation with Vesta, and a Venus resource with Sedna. These are very highly dimensional aspects that can only be perceived by an awakened heart, revealing our soul’s blueprint with the divine cosmic recollection of wisdom to understand the significance of our place and purpose in this lifetime, and the ultimate devotion required to manifest from the heart.
And in perfect timing, Sunday 1/29 is the much awaited Mercury Pluto conjunction, which literally is new cycle of THE EPIC PARADIGM SHIFT, as our minds, and all of our cellular communications and messaging systems, shift to a much more expansive, infinite, liberated, and spiritually rooted language and belief system of Unconditional Love. We’ve been preparing and working towards this for a so long, and now it’s implementation time. The thing to remember is that we must now allow ourselves to transmute and recycle any fear or doubt we’ve ever had around love, intimacy, rejection, abandonment, betrayal, or loss, in order to fully experience what’s possible in this new paradigm. The old fears will get triggered, and our integration work is to be mindful of those triggers, and consciously choose to open to Love.
The practice this week is to continue noticing any emotional triggers and reactions within yourself. When an event or scenario stings, hurts your heart, or creates any kind of painful or uncomfortable pain sensation in the body this week, tune in and go deeper, with curiosity, and breathe. Let go of the story of what’s occurring, and simply follow the physical sensation with your awareness to observe what’s rooted into your core that wants to shift, express, release, or let go. Allow your breath to gently open, expand and support the physical space around that sensation, and bring your full attention there, while activating the Violet Flame.
The nature of everything is change. The more patient and persistent you are, eventually something will shift and start to let go. In the letting go, there is clarity and truth revealed. Our practice is to become the sacred witnessers of all that wants to be revealed within ourselves, and allow that energy to expand and move across the bridge from the subconscious to the conscious, into the light of awakening and empowered wholeness. We are One, we are Whole, and We are Love.
“To be great, be whole;
Exclude nothing, exaggerate nothing that is not you.
Be whole in everything. Put all you are
Into the smallest thing you do.
So, in each lake, the moon shines with splendor.
Because it blossoms up above.”
