6th September 2010
The Moon will be both a confusing and a clarifying influence for us over the next few days as it activates a channel with both the Sun and Earth, activates the Super Galactic Centre, creates a channel with and then conjuncts Makemake, passes over an opposition with Uranus and Jupiter, passes over Mercury retrograde, sets up a Virgo New Moon and then conjuncts Saturn just as Saturn creates a new channel with the North Node. Enough to make our heads spin!
The Sun and Earth are both in the Crown chakra (64 and 63). Along with Mercury retrograde in the Gate of Peaceful Recuperation (40) and major shifts to our cellular structure to remove ancient soul wounds, we are all feeling very sleepy and wanting nothing more than to dream in a new reality for ourselves and the world. Just now our physical bodies are doing so much more than they appear to be doing. Although we have been tragically removed from a full conscious relationship with them by our culture, they are nonetheless getting on with the job they are designed to do. Creating heaven on earth. The more trust you can put in your body just now the better.
Back to the Crown Chakra – these two gates 63 and 64 – are the last two hexagrams of the I Ching. Over the years I have found that these two gates represent the watershed of change, the place at which we shift from the old to the new.
The transition from the old to the new time is already accomplished. In principle everything stands ready and it is only the details that need still to be achieved. In life there are junctures when all forces are in balance and work in harmony, so that everything seems to be in the best of order. It’s important to recognise the moments that bode danger and take timely precautions to banish it. (gate 63, after completion)
The conditions are difficult. The task is great and full of responsibility. It is nothing less than that of leading the world out of confusion back to order. But it is a task that promises success, because there is a goal that can unite the forces now tending in different directions. In the times before completion, deliberation and caution are the prerequisites of success. (gate 64, before completion)
When we open to the inspired information coming in through our Crown, we can shift our thinking and flow with what’s real. When we shut off this inspiration we tend to view reality as being what we think it is. Anything that doesn’t line up with this thought based perception gets tossed out by our stuck minds – any emotions, any body sensations. Our own inner knowing becomes the enemy, just waiting to trip us up by disturbing the cozy isolation of our mental construct. Shutting down on deep and full connections with ourselves and others becomes a survival issue. I have been watching this in myself over the past few days with absolute astonishment and wonder at it’s subtle effect.
In the Human Design chart we can learn a lot about how our bodies function by looking at the Spleen Centre activations. Most of the gates in this centre are in Libra – 50, 32, 57, 48, 18. There is only one odd gate – 28 in Scorpio – a hexagram that teaches us how to come into balance within ourselves and in our relationships with others through the correct use of power. One of the principle ideas held within the Libra energy is of continually looking for the balance in any situation, a sort of ongoing homeostatic response to life. We are actually designed to be powerful change agents, constantly flowing with the new.
The area of the zodiac around the Virgo /Libran cusp is chock full of fun just now as a shimmery lunar light passes over our current notions about service, relationship, purity and connection. Virgo is the last of the personal signs – Aries to Virgo making up the first six signs of the zodiac. When we move onto Libra we gradually shift out of self interest and self concern and begin to look for the meaning of life in the context of our relationship with the other.
Our Spleen Centre contains one of our most complex intelligences – our immune and lymphatic systems. It tells us what’s us and what isn’t us. Most of us have been taught that the immune system is like an army ready to pounce on nasty intruders. Fritjof Capra describes the immune system in his book The Web of Life as a complex network of subtle interrelationships, and Paul Hawken explains that recent research shows ‘it’s function does not depend on its firepower but on the quality of it’s connectedness’ (Blessed Unrest).
This is a whole new way to exist on the physical plane, not in constant vigilance for survival against dreadful enemies that goes right down to the cellular level, but as a creative exercise in building more and more meaningful connections with the world!
Imagine that we have been carrying around the idea that we are constantly at war against the nasty outside bugs and instead our bodies are busy building excellent relationships with the myriad of life on this planet in the form of bacilli, fungi, proteins, antigens, occasionally even a live disease or pathogen. Imagine that instead of ‘fighting disease’ we are creating a more complex and meaningful relationship with life. Imagine also how this extrapolates out into our world – as within so without.
These connections are not just about our own physical wellbeing. They represent the first steps towards building what we might call a global immune system, a grass roots early warning system that acts immediately should any one of us experience disharmony or a lack of balance. It’s local in that we pick up what affects us personally. It’s global because it’s power is leveraged through the immensity of our multi-dimensional connections – within our own fields and with others. This newly emerging global immune system operates to ensure the sacred nature of the relationship between humanity (social justice) and the planet (environmental justice). Justice of course being a Libran concept based on fairness to all.
We are opening time portals opening between now and 2012 that allow us to access the 94% of dark matter currently hidden from us, (the feminine), the nature of which is nurturance through connectivity. Watch for scientific breakthroughs that take us beyond our existing understanding of reality as 4 dimensional (length, width height and time) and the subsequent release of incredible tools for cleaning up the planet and organising our societies with love.
As we continue to build our new global immune system nothing will be able to escape it’s immense healing power.
So that’s what your inspired mind and your body are up to this week. Feeling a bit tired? No wonder!
