The Retro, the Meteors & the Full Moon
The Burning Ground, the First Initiation & the Fifth Labour
Mercury retrograde in Leo is in full force. Reaching outward, we’re pulled inward. Unable to maintain “business as usual” for multiple reasons (the retrograde, solar activity altering our electromagnetic field, proton streams of positive ions, the planetary shifts, Uranus/Pluto, the days & nights long moon void of courses, the old reality attempting to override the new, etc.), some of us feel paralyzed with tiredness, exhausted from pain, weary with busyness, longing to slow down, rest a while, contemplate individual realities, ideas and perceptions. Instead, we experience disruptive change, things upside down, plans stalled, and wonder where we’ll find the resilience to maintain our balance. We can’t in this present world. We have to be adaptable. Our task during this great transition time.
Retrogrades can be revelatory. During this revelatory retrograde, it’s important to stand and attempt to be the voice that articulates what humanity may be feeling – tired to exhausted & seeking change. And to collectively ask who are the movers, shakers and changers? It looks like we are. Many of us have the same vision. We confront a paradox these days, when choice is paramount for humanity, yet indifference and confusion seem the norm. We prepare & we lead by practicing choice each day, beginning with small choices. Humanity needs leaders to guide them toward the Forces of Light.
It takes willingness (1st level of the Will of God) to do this. The Will-to-Good is the magnet of the future. Coupled with the Goodwill deep within humanity. We call these forth. We mentor them.
This Mercury retrograde in Leo calls all of us to be leaders. And, as leaders, to gather together, build a strong capacity for community, and make a game plan that calls forth, envisions and creates the future.
Assisting us with the light and energy for our future tasks are the Delta Aquarids Saturday & Sunday – a meteor shower emerging directly from (radiant) the constellation Aquarius. The pre-dawn showers, 18 – 20 an hour, fanning out east, north and west, stream across the sky distributing the light of the Aquarian Age.
Wednesday is the full moon Aquarius, Leo solar festival (10 degrees). The meditative keynote of leadership for Leo is, “I am That & That Am I.” Leo is the Light of the Soul, the 5th Kingdom being built, lighting the Way for Humanity – the “Children of Fire, the Sons & Daughters of Mind.” Leo is related to the Sun which creates a burning ground of purification for humanity. This fire destroys all that hinders our return back to the Father’s House. As humanity experiences the “burning ground” they seek those who will illuminate and lead them into a state of understanding. We are the ones who must illuminate and lead humanity, as we also participate in that burning ground. However, we are to have the understanding as to why this is occurring.
Humanity is attempting to take the First Initiation (Birth into the new Kingdom of the Soul), which is administered by the Christ Himself. “A golden strand from the heart of Christ extends to our hearts. Via this strand of light passes the power to strengthen, to stimulate, to vivify and to bless. We become priests unto the Lord.”
The Forces of Materiality are doing their best for this Initiation to not take place for humanity. Thus the conflicts and chaos upon the Earth. And the call for choice and discernment.
The Fifth Gate (of Leo, opposite sign of Aquarius) has opened, the Fifth Labor has begun. It is a dreadful labor and we must be prepared. Let us keep watch even though our heart is questioning. We must burnish bright our shields, feel our courage strong. Together, amidst the lion’s roar, we venture forth. Knowing we must create the brave new world.
Let us observe carefully the Olympics this week, beginning Friday morning, from London. There is great controversy about this year’s Olympics (from the strange uniforms, one-eyed mascots, the rainbow, strange buildings and strangest of all, the Logo – all rather unlovely and perhaps symbolic). We pray there is no false flag (emergency). We also pray for those who are suffering from the Aurora, Colorado shooting – those who died, the families left behind, and for the shooter himself. The times and events in our world are not what they seem. We call forth observation & the knowledge that leads to true intuition. So that we are not blinded by the darkness. So that we may see into the Light.
