The Mystery of Free Will: Aquarius and the Awakening of Consciousness

The Mystery of Free Will: Aquarius and the Awakening of Consciousness

by Ray Grasse. As a spiritual force in humanity's evolution, the Aquarian Age is important on several levels. It can open us to a reconciliation of our divine and human natures, by ushering in a more practical approach that manifests our spirituality in everyday contexts. But another aspect of this era's spiritual importance centers on the mysterious principle of free will.

2012: Nemesis or Enlightenment?

2012: Nemesis or Enlightenment? by Mike Baraby Mike Bara. There do appear to be two astrological configurations which argue that December 21st, 2012 will be a nexus point or at least the beginning of a significant transition for humanity. The chart indicates that our consciousness will be in state of conflict. We will face many choices about our...

The Moon Rules Our Need for Security

moon and security

by Donna Cunningham.

The Moon rules your basic sense of security, which early parenting influences in a crucial but unconscious way. It comes from the way the infant is held, how it is fed, and how it is responded to when it cries -- whether all these things are done with love, with anxiety, with indifference, or even with hostility.

The Solar or Yearly Cycle

solar and yearly cycleby John Townley.

Like the moon, the sun exerts a cyclic pull on us, but the pull is much stronger -- it's what keeps the earth in orbit, determines the seasons, and keeps us all alive. The sun's cycle, 365+ days, serves very much as an overall personal energy and health cycle and often determines...

Paying Attention: Signs & Wonders

Paying Attention: Signs & Wonders, article by Mike Baraby Mike Bara. As I look forward, I (like the Maya and the Hopi long before me) feel change in the air. We all want to know what will happen in 2012, and the truth is that what will happen is already happening. The number of unusual astronomical events taking place in the next couple of years (all of which were known by the Maya centuries ago)...

ANOTHER HIGH-ENERGY week lies before us (which means that a good night's sleep continues to be a priority!). The star of the show is, most assuredly, the Total Lunar Eclipse on Wednesday the 15th (1:14pm PDT), but there are many supporting players who will be drawing our attention as well. Our three eclipses are providing the...

Horoscope June 20 - 26th 2011

Pam Younghans

by Pam Younghans

THE CURTAIN OPENS this week to show our cast of planetary players engaged in animated conversation... Mercury (representing our ability to reason logically) looks completely disheveled, winged hat askew, having met up with first unpredictable Uranus on Saturday and then forceful Pluto on Sunday. Usually a bit...

Horoscope: February 28 to March 6, 2011

THE THEME of completion continues this week, reinforced by the New Moon in Pisces on Friday. New Moons typically represent a time to sow seeds and to take action on new projects -- but in Pisces, that intention is altered somewhat. Pisces is the final sign of astrology's twelve-sign zodiac, and so represents the ending of a year-long cycle. Perhaps we can use the energy of this New Moon by taking steps to complete some project -- or some karmic issue...

Horoscope: February 14 to 20, 2011

ANOTHER HIGH-VIBRATIONAL WEEK lies before us, highlighted by a Full Moon in Leo and a triple alignment of Neptune, Mars and Mercury in Aquarius. The other-worldly energy of this stellium (an alignment of three or more planets) will build throughout the week, be amplified at the Full Moon on Thursday/Friday (when the Sun aligns with Neptune), and then reach full effect next...

May 2009 Alignment: Jupiter's Role

by Pam Younghans.

Pam YounghansJupiter's involvement in the May 2009 alignment with Neptune and Chiron means that, at the very least, it will be that much more difficult for us to ignore the primary directives of the alignment. But we can also explore what his presence in Aquarius might indicate and how else this vast planet's involvement might...

Horoscope January 31 to February 6, 2011

URANUS is very active this week, wrapping up business as the planet nears the end of its journey through Pisces. During these past seven-plus years, Uranus has been encouraging us to break out of the expectations and "shoulds" we may have lived with for lifetimes, in favor of following the calling of our soul's higher path. Since the planets are always working to move us from lower vibration to higher...

Horoscope: March 7 to 13, 2011

THE URANUS EFFECT is intensified as the planet of Higher Consciousness and Liberation enters Aries this Friday, March 11th, 2011. Our mental, emotional and physical bodies may take some time to adjust to this new energy. Because of this adjustment phase, at times we may feel expansive and invigorated, at other times a bit overwhelmed or anxious.

We've already gotten some clues as to how this influence might manifest in physical reality, due to Jupiter entering Aries on January 22. Since then, the cries for independence and autonomy around the world have gotten louder,

Horoscope: March 14 to 20, 2011

THE INTENSITY of recent energy shifts is palpable -- and strikingly apparent in our physical reality as well. If current events are accurate reflections of the impact of Uranus in Aries, it seems we have gotten a jump-start on making life-altering changes on our planet and within our global community. It can be difficult to find the positives in catastrophes such as the ones that have occurred in the past few days. And yet...

Horoscope: March 21 to 27, 2011

By the time many of you read today's Journal, the Sun will have moved into Aries, marking the beginning of the astrological New Year (exact ingress on March 20th, at 4:21pm PDT). Of course, we cross this threshhold every year at this time -- but this year, the event is made more powerful because Uranus, the Great Liberator and Manifester of Change, has also just stepped into Aries. This means that...

Horoscope March 28 to April 3, 2011

THE PLANETS are very active this week, continuing to inspire us to make important internal and external shifts. Starting with a Pluto-Sun square on Monday and finishing with a Saturn-Sun opposition on Sunday, we are challenged in various ways -- and almost every day -- to take our game to the next level.  We hit the ground running on Monday, with...
