The Day After

Looks like we all survived Elenin and can wish each other good morning yet again on our planet. This alleged event allows us to practice our highest spiritual discipline – that of discernment.  Much was written about this event, which amounted to nothing and, yet, it very well could have.  Learning to research, listen, explore possibilities and entertain them all without opinion, agenda or concern is the art of the seeker. Through it, we learn to empower ourselves by exploring and learning to trust our own judgment in the midst of rumor, innuendo and potential chaos.

So, we have lived through the exercise of learning how to live with The Way, that very elusive and esoteric Taoist state of entrusting ourselves to ourselves and the uncertain and constant mysteries of the Cosmos. Nothing is lost in such an exercise.  It is, in fact,  a very worthwhile journey we have all taken together in learning to listen to our own internal voice and following it, no matter what it was any one of us chose to do in the face of it.

Welcome to our post-Elenin world reality. Regardless of the final outcome here, it has, indeed, energetically altered all of us in the ways we needed.  Reflection on what this event meant to you and the discoveries you have made now on the other side of it is well worth the effort.  Such nodal points, whether real, imaginary or simply anxiously anticipated, allow us to scratch ever deeper below the surface of what we think we know of ourselves and the world around us.

In light.

Surfing the Trine: September 10-16, 2011

The Pluto/Jupiter/Mercury grand trine in the earth signs (Capricorn, Taurus and Virgo, respectively) that came into its full strength (using 8 degree orbs) on September 10 and exerts its strongest influence through the 16th of this month is an excellent time to make use of the harmonious energetics of the two spiritual/soul-level planets (the outer planets, here Pluto and Jupiter, which form the major themes of an individual chart) as they channel down into the personal and mundane, here escorted onto terra firma by the zippy activities of Mercury in the areas of communication, commerce and all that moves in and around our lives. With Mercury, these movements occur at both the physical and psychic levels and, with Jupiter and Pluto involved, one should be looking for shifts in our larger spiritual interpretations of life.
