Tapping into the Divine Exhalation

What do you imagine in your minds eye when you hear the word: collective unconscious?
We all have our ideas of the underlying layer that regulates our existence.  Some words that comes to mind are: the field, the energy, the chi, prana, source, God, connecting all that is alive like a giant psychic octopus with millions of tentacles. Accessing this ”flow” can be done through meditation, yoga, dreams, drugs, or anything that will take you outside of the ”rational linear views” of reality. Some people (usually with a strong Neptune emphasis in their chart) have permanent access to this oceanic landscape.  The lure of this all encompassing wisdom is strong in some, and lifetimes can be spent trying to return to the comfort of the dream.

We are currently building up to a square (90º angle) between Mercury in Gemini and Neptune in Pisces.  The square will be exact tomorrow May 9th but we can consider this aspect LIVE.
Mercury is also in it’s shadow phase, preparing to go retrograde on May 18/19.

Mercury is responsible for the incoming information, the way we communicate to others and in general our logical thinking process. Neptune, the great dissolver of boundaries is concerned with spiritualizing our experience. Spreading a dense layer of smoke around the sharp contours of reality, so that we can see with the eyes of the heart.

Today and tomorrow, watch for confusion around words and messages not being delivered properly. Getting your point across might be pointless.  What you say might get distorted by the time it reaches someone else’s ears. Confusion, mental fatigue, fuzzy thinking are possible side effects.

The prescription for a Mercury-Neptune square could be to:  Let go of the usual dualistic perception (Gemini) of: me/others – good/bad. Dropping our linear ways of thinking or doing for a more meditative outlook. Allowing the higher wisdom to flow in and soak our experience. Listening to music, going to the art gallery, watching a movie, creating, writing poetry.

The Moon in Capricorn today might feel like you have mountains to climb, important things to accomplish, but you will have to pass through a dense layer of clouds to reach the peak!

Playing with the Moon

There is two side to the story

The beauty of an idea,  reflected in everything.

Your mind becomes mine

Thoughts  scattered on a mirror

and reflected back to the world.

At night, you talk in your sleep

Words whispered in your ear

Playing the telephone game

with God and his friends.

To have

CREATIVITY CAN BE SERIOUS BUSINESS!

Mercury moves into the sign of Taurus until April 30th.

Mercury rules all form of communication, the intellect and thinking process. When the planet that symbolizes our mental outlook, moves into Taurus territory, we can expect the way we think to become more pragmatic and grounded. Concerns with the material side of life of having, wanting and acquiring.

Do a small inventory of the resources you already have and think of how you could maximize them to bring wealth.

Focus on the qualities you have that will help you bring abundance and growth into your life.

Formulate a creative way to get closer to your goal, delineating time limits to help you stay anchored in reality.

Manage your assets
Plant the seeds in fertile soil
Lay out a solid foundation
Stay focu$
Write down an inventory of your options

Beyond the frontiers of the Mind

You thought you knew because you read it in a book

image
Painting by Quincey Tahoma

The words fed to the masses and traded for faith

The ideas of the prophet translated as memes

Blinding beliefs sold as merchandise

Making profit on the devotees.

Beyond the frontiers of dogma,

there is an unrestrained freedom

but to get there, you have to forget about

the uncivilised freedom of the old school rock star.

What you thought was the truth

is only the beginning of a lie.

Go back to the body, go back to the rhythm of the heart.

Loose yourself in the purifying fires of not knowing with the mind.

Faith is a big word

Freedom is even bigger

The Word distracts you from the truth

into the exquisite pleasures of description.

While the real you sits quietly knowing,

filled with every single spark that shines forth from the Sun.

The teacher shapes you into an anxious contradiction.

A skilled puppet

Who is in charge?

Is it the Donkey or the Spirit Rider

The Revolution of Flirting

The Moon moves into Aquarius for the next few days and is applying to trine Venus in Gemini, square Mars in Taurus and oppose Jupiter in Leo.

With the Moon in Aquarius, the focus is on groups of people and organisations with an eye on the future.  Friends with original ideas, the collective, humanitarian concerns and the outsider’s point of view  are all associated with the sign of Aquarius.

With the trine to Venus in Gemini, we have a brief window of opportunity to discuss new or forward thinking ideas and hold opposite points of view. Anything from gender or LGBTQI rights to the future of internet activism or human-computer interactions. You could find yourself having a friendly debates about societal change on a street corner or at the coffee shop. People with great ideas are everywhere, and you could be more curious to know what others are thinking. Don’t exclude yourself from the conversation. Participate.

Wonderful  day to talk about anything and everything but don’t expect deep introspective life changing revelations. It’s a light, breezy and flirty day. A good day to generate a lot of innovative ideas, and brainstorming.  Get curious, get moving, get talking , flirt with others and their ideas. Remember to stay open minded and share the stage.  You don’t want the discussion to turn into a monologue.
