Vedic Astrology Report for June 2022

vedic astrology May 2015

By Debra Infante

June brings some relief from the recent spring eclipses. Mercury, the planet of communications goes direct June 3. Saturn in Aquarius goes retrograde on June 4, a time of introspection. On June 15, Venus conjuncts Rahu in Aries, a time our relationships are tested. On June 19, Venus begins its yearly transit through its favorable sign of Taurus. On June 25 and 26, Mars transits the gandanta degrees at the end of the zodiac as it begins its transit through Aries with an aspect from Saturn. This is an important period to face and heal old challenges with courage and commitment.

Very early the morning of June 3, Mercury, the planet of travel and communications, goes direct at 1 degree Taurus, having been retrograde since May 10. This may signal some progress with the recent travel issues many have experienced. When Mercury changes direction, we can change our minds or plans. Mercury direct is a good time to clear up or resolve any miscommunications or arguments and move forward.

Saturn goes retrograde at 1 degree Aquarius on June 4, 2022, and stays retrograde until October 22, 2022. During this retrograde phase of almost five months, Saturn will eventually move back into the sign of Capricorn on July 12. With Saturn retrograde, things may slow down and you feel a bit more frustrated. This is a period of developing patience and tolerance. You may find you work harder, and are able to have greater concentration and focus. Saturn retrograde is a great time for inner reflection and building a deeper, inner strength.

On June 15, the nodes of the Moon, Rahu and Ketu, finally begin to move, after having been stationing at 28 degrees for 2 ½ months. Rahu in Aries will now conjunct Venus at 27 degrees Aries on June 15. Rahu represents a more worldly and materialistic desire. With Rahu’s influence on Venus, the planet of love, relationship, and finances, this is a time to be careful of
any excessive urgency or manipulation around love and money matters. Try not to rush decisions, but get clear and think things through, and connect to your heart. We realize we need to develop greater compassion, selfless love, and compromise in our relationships to be fulfilled.

On June 19 until July 13, 2022, Venus happily transits its own sign of Taurus. Venus in Taurus loves harmony and brings the need for greater stability in relationships, along with the desire to be with family and good friends. We want a more comfortable environment. We are motivated to be more creative, and enjoy attending art shows or musical events. As Taurus is an earth sign, we benefit from spending time in natural surroundings and getting grounded! We may feel a greater urgency to get involved in environmental issues.

At the end of June, Mars begins its transit through its own sign of Aries from June 26 until August 10, 2022. But first Mars must travel through the transformative gandanta degrees of 29 Pisces to 0 degrees Aries on June 25 and 26, 2022. When planets move from the last degree of a water sign to the first degree of a fire sign, these degrees and are considered challenging, but they can also generate substantial growth. This is a time when long-held issues or lessons surface in order to be healed, either personally or collectively. As action-oriented Mars is the planet that is gandanta, we are asked to let go of old ways of handling conflict, war, and aggression, and to choose new and positive ways of settling our differences.

Also on June 26, Mars will be aspected by Saturn in Aquarius at 0 degrees Aries, a gandanta degree. Saturn and Mars aspects can manifest as a push/pull energy, and some struggle may occur. Then as Mars continues its transits through Aries, we can experience more enthusiasm, adventure, and spontaneity.

Vedic Astrology Report for May 2022

vedic astrology May 2015

By Debra Infante

May is a transformative and impactful month, especially due to the total lunar eclipse in Scorpio on May 15, 2022. Akshaya Tritiya, a very auspicious day in the Vedic calendar, occurs on May 3, when the Sun and Moon are both exalted. Saturn, planet of truth and responsibility, now begins its brief 2 ½ month transit through community-oriented Aquarius. Exalted Venus is with Jupiter in Pisces most of May, generating hope and compassion. Mercury, planet of communications and travel, goes retrograde on May 10. The exalted Sun conjuncts the north node Rahu in Aries, an ambitious combination.

This year, Akshaya Tritiya, a very auspicious day in the Vedic calendar, occurs on May 3, 2022. This positive day occurs each year on the third lunar day of the waxing moon in either April or May, when the Sun and Moon are both exalted. According to ancient legend, this is the day when the sacred Ganges River descended to the earth from heaven. In India, purchasing gold on this day is considered favorable, as it provides increased wealth for the coming years. This is considered a very auspicious day for starting new activities that you wish to grow, prosper, and endure.

Saturn is briefly traveling through its own sign of Aquarius, which just started April 29 and lasts until July 12, 2022, when it will retrograde back into Capricorn until January 2023. So we get just a taste of the energies of Saturn in Aquarius for the next few months. With Saturn in Aquarius we start to take a more serious and critical review of our ideals and beliefs. Are we collectively living up to our highest values and principles? The power of authentic communities and groups working toward a common goal or cause is appealing. We sense the value of a truly supportive social network in order to develop much needed resilience in our lives.

Venus is exalted in Pisces most of this month until it moves to Aries on May 24, 2022. While Venus travels through Pisces it is with benefic Jupiter there, and these two planets together open our hearts, with greater love, grace, and compassion. We may find it easier to reconcile our differences with others. Take advantage of this wonderfully creative and inspirational energy the first three weeks this month.

Mercury, planet of communications, goes retrograde on May 10, 2022 at 10 degrees Taurus. Mercury will retrograde back to 1 degree Taurus, and finally go direct the morning of June 3. This is a period to be extra clear and precise with all types of communications, written or verbal. Also double-check any travel plans, and back up computers. From May 18 to May 24, Mercury will be combust the Sun in Taurus, so pay extra attention during this time. Mercury retrograde is a positive time for deeper, inner reflection and meditation.

The Sun, transiting its exalted sign of Aries since April 13, will conjunct the north node Rahu at 28 degrees Aries on May 13, just before it exits the sign on May 14. The Sun and Rahu together increases one’s ambitions and desires for material success and greater independence. But watch for any amplification of ego and direct this powerful energy toward spiritual advancement.

The main astrological event in May is the total lunar eclipse that occurs on May 15, 2022 at 9:12 PM (PDT) at 1 degree Scorpio. This eclipse is very close to the Moon’s degree of debility which is 3 degrees Scorpio. During this full moon lunar eclipse, our feelings run deep, full of intensity and heightened sensitivity. This eclipse can initiate a significant healing process as we transform and shift this exceptional mystical energy into something far greater than we can imagine.

This lunar eclipse occurs in the nakshatra called Vishakha, which is symbolized as a “fork in the road.” This can indicate a time to make important choices in life, deciding which path is best to take for our personal growth and evolution, especially if we have been feeling out of balance. Eclipses bring increased awareness and revelations, and are times of change and new beginnings.  Eclipses are not days for material life, but are days for introspection and spiritual activities, such as meditation, yoga, and retreat.

Vedic Astrology Report for April 2022

vedic astrology May 2015

By Debra Infante

April is a very busy month with major astrological activity that brings shifts and challenges, motivating us to grow and transform with a new focus. At the beginning of the month is the intense Mars and Saturn conjunction that also aspects the nodes Rahu and Ketu. Two major planets change signs this month, first Jupiter moves to Pisces on April 13, followed by Saturn briefly moving to Aquarius on April 28. The Sun and Venus each move to their powerful exalted signs this month. Finally the spring eclipse season starts on April 30 with a solar eclipse in the sign of Aries.

Mars, planet of action and energy, has been transiting its exalted sign of Capricorn since February 26, 2022 when it joined Saturn there. Saturn is also powerfully placed in Capricorn, a sign it rules. Mars and Saturn are not at ease with each other, so together they bring increased volatility and friction. Mars will exactly conjunct Saturn at 28 degrees Capricorn on April 4 and 5, 2022. At 28 degrees, assertive Mars is at its pinnacle of total exaltation, but with the restrictive Saturn influence we should watch for an amplification of anger, frustration, anxiety, or impulsivity. But if motivated by pure intention and strong will, we can rise above these barriers with greater understanding and vision. Find healthy outlets for this build-up of energy. Know that your actions do matter and have great impact. Be patient, understanding and forgiving with others.

Also on April 4 and 5,while Mars and Saturn are conjunct at 28 degrees, Mars will aspect Rahu in Aries at 28 degrees, and Saturn will aspect Ketu in Libra at 28 degrees too! Mars aspecting Rahu can manifest as a dominating energy, with control issues or power struggles. Instead, channel this amplified, ambitious energy into inspirational or creative expressions. Saturn aspecting Ketu teaches us to detach and let go of the superficial or excess in our lives. Unexplained pressures or uncertainly can arise. We need to be more realistic and practical. Also, Jupiter in Aquarius aspects Ketu exactly at 28 degrees at this time and gives a much needed spiritual focus.

The Sun begins its annual transit through its exalted sign of Aries from April 13 until May 14, 2022. The Sun rules the eastern direction, suggesting the sense of new beginnings and the excitement we feel during this particular time of year.  The Sun is the planet that represents the connection to our innermost essence, so this is a positive time for meditation and the practice of self-inquiry. The Sun is a pitta, fiery planet, so watch for being overly stimulated and impatient, which can result in frustrations.

A big shift occurs when Jupiter changes signs on April 13, 2022, moving to its favorable sign of Pisces for over a year. In general, Jupiter stays in a sign a little over a year, so when Jupiter shifts signs it is significant. Jupiter is happy residing in its own sign of Pisces, and this transit can promote a deeper interest in spiritual studies and contemplative practices. There is a greater emphasis on humanitarian and charitable causes. Watch though for exaggerated idealism and lack of boundaries.  Jupiter’s generosity, compassion, and sensitivity is apparent during this transit through the water sign of Pisces.

Venus begins its transit through the favorable sign of Pisces where it is exalted from April 27 to May 23, 2022. Venus will be joining Jupiter there. Venus in Pisces brings a longing for greater kindness, love, and peace to alleviate the suffering and challenges we see around us. Venus rules fine art and beauty, so we enjoy being more creative and self-expressive. However, Venus in Pisces needs to learn to discern and have proper boundaries.  Adding more devotional and spiritual content to our lives is suggested, as Venus rules the path of Bhakti Yoga.

Venus exactly conjuncts Jupiter at 3 degrees Pisces on April 30, the solar eclipse day. These two teacher planets together create a dwi-guru yoga (Jupiter is the teacher of the gods, Venus is the teacher of the demons). This is a wonderful time to expand our knowledge and promote spiritual awareness. Jupiter and Venus together can increase romantic opportunities, and promote artistic, creative, and healing ventures. But watch for over-doing things.

Saturn, planet of focus and discipline, begins a brief 2 ½ month transit through Aquarius, starting April 28 until July 12, 2022. Saturn will only go to 1 degree Aquarius and then retrograde back into Capricorn on July 12, 2022. It’s not until January 17, 2023 that Saturn fully begins its transit through Aquarius. Saturn in Aquarius prompts us to review our contributions to society and to our planet, with a more humanitarian focus. Saturn in the fixed air sign of Aquarius can be determined or become obstinate and hard to change.

The end of April marks the start of the spring eclipse season. A solar eclipse occurs at 16 degrees Aries on April 30, 2022, at 1:28 PM (PDT) in the nakshatra of Bharani. This eclipse will be followed by a total lunar eclipse next month on May 15, 2022 (PDT). The April 30 solar eclipse is in the fierce nakshatra of Bharani and generates a type of life, death, rebirth energy. We may be ending one phase of life, and beginning a new one. The deity of Bharani is Yama, the lord of death and king of justice, indicates this eclipse brings transformative and purifying energies.  Bharani nakshatra is called the “star of restraint,” so self-discipline, patience and true understanding are required at this time. Eclipses are points of change and offer us insights into our own evolution. They carry a spiritual connotation, awakening us to our greater potential. Meditation, retreat, and inner work are remedies for eclipses.

Vedic Astrology Report for March 2022

vedic astrology May 2015

By Debra Infante

March brings a significant event when the powerful nodes of the Moon, Rahu and Ketu, shift signs on March 16, 2022, moving to Aries and Libra. This indicates new events, lessons, and important changes occur in Aries and Libra through November 2023. Mars is exalted in Capricorn this month, and will exactly conjunct Saturn on April 4, 2022. Mercury quickly transits two signs this month, first traveling through Aquarius where it joins Jupiter, and then Mercury moves to its debilitated sign of Pisces the last week of this month.

The nodes of the Moon are planets in Vedic astrology and carry great karmic impact, usually staying in a sign about 18 months or so. This time the nodes will stay in Aries and Libra for a few months longer, until November 28, 2023. We experience life lessons now revolving around the significations of the signs of Aries and Libra. Aries and Libra are both cardinal signs, denoting leadership qualities, moving forward, and being self-initiating and creative. On the negative side, cardinal signs can display a domineering energy. We will be learning to work well with others, creating balance in all our relationships (personal, global, and with Nature). We are learning to be selfless and be respectful of the needs of others, as we find a peaceful equilibrium.

The nodes are called shadow planets or chaya grahas, and are connected to eclipse energies. The nodes travel backwards through the zodiac. Rahu (north node) will move from Taurus to Aries, while Ketu (south node) shifts from Scorpio to Libra from March 16, 2022 until November 28, 2023. Nodal transits can be quite impactful and we can experience sudden events, deep growth and transformation, and even some confusion. Rahu teaches through life experiences, while Ketu teaches through releasing past patterns and letting go.

Rahu in Mars-ruled Aries increases our ambitions and the need for adventures. We are more competitive and action-oriented. Rahu transiting fiery and impatient Aries can generate an urgency to make quick and fast changes without thinking of others or the results of our actions.  So be cautious if moving too fast without some consideration for all concerned. Rising feelings of frustration can occur if our personal expression is blocked or delayed.

Ketu in Venus-ruled Libra brings lessons in love and relationships. We may set expectations too high in our dealings with others or we become extra sensitive to rejection.  We are learning about perfectionism and commitment in relationships. We really want deep, spiritual love in our lives now.  We are learning to create balance and harmony in all our relationships, while giving freely from the heart with less attachment. Bhakti Yoga or devotional practices are remedies for this transit.

When the nodes shift on March 16, 2022, Rahu in Aries will be aspected by Mars in Capricorn, and Ketu in Libra will now be aspected by Saturn in Capricorn. In other words, both nodes will be aspected by challenging planets.

During part of the time that Ketu is transiting Libra, Saturn in Capricorn will aspect Ketu from March 16, 2022 until January 2023. Both Saturn and Ketu can teach us detachment. Saturn, a planet of truth and practicality influencing otherworldly Ketu directs us to let go and still be present in life. But we can also lose sight of the big picture and lack focus. Let Saturn’s strength and discipline guide you.

Also beginning on March 16 until April 7, 2022, Mars in Capricorn will aspect Rahu in Aries. Mars aspecting Rahu is a very dominating energy and is about testing your power and strength. Work on channeling this combustible, forceful energy into positive expressions in your life, such as developing your spiritual practice, doing yoga or athletic ventures, or volunteering to help others.

Mars is transiting Capricorn, its most powerful sign, the whole month of March until April 7, 2022, which helps us access our inner courage and power. Mars in Capricorn is traveling with Saturn there and these two planets are not friendly with each other. Later Mars and Saturn will exactly conjunct at 28 degrees on April 4, 2022, and Mars will be at its pinnacle of exaltation at 28 degrees, but will feel restricted by Saturn.

And remember that the nodes, Rahu and Ketu, are also being aspected by Mars and Saturn, also exact on April 4 which is quite extraordinary. However, Jupiter, the great benefic, will be influencing Ketu very closely, so gives us some support and upliftment.  We may begin to feel these planetary aspects toward the end of March and the beginning of April, so the end of this month is a period to be more observant and careful, as we may feel challenged or more agitated. This is a time to work with the qualities of resiliency, neutrality, and compassion. Use these powerful planetary energies as a catalyst for deeper spiritual growth and self-transformation.

Mercury, planet of communications, transits Aquarius from March 6 until March 23, 2022, and joins expansive Jupiter there. Education and learning are key focus. We have a thirst for knowledge, so this is a good time to take courses or seminars.  Later, during the last week of March, Mercury quickly transits Pisces, its sign of debility from March 23 until April 7, 2022. This is a time to be extra discerning, have good boundaries, and be clear in all your communications. Meditation, introspection, or pranayama are remedies.

Vedic Astrology Report for February 2022

vedic astrology May 2015

By Debra Infante

The month of February begins with Venus and Mercury moving direct, helpful for communications and healing. The Sun and Saturn are exactly conjunct in Capricorn this month, amplifying the need for self-discipline, maturity, and authentic expression. Kala Sarpa yoga occurs off and on this month, and demands high ethics and neutrality in our world in order for us to evolve. Mars and Venus conjunction brings the desire for passion and creativity in our lives and in our work.  Mars exalted in Capricorn tests our inner courage and strength.

Venus just ended its retrograde phase on January 29, 2022, having been retrograde since December 19, 2021. During the Venus retrograde period, we were doing deep inner healing around our personal relationships and values. Now with Venus direct, we may have more clarity to act on what truly matters in our lives with an open heart. We connect and honor those we love with great compassion and gratitude.

Mercury goes direct the evening of February 3, 2022 MST, having been retrograde since January 14, 2022. As Mercury slowly moves forward, delays or frustrations we experienced when Mercury was retrograde now start to dissolve. With Mercury direct on February 3, we feel more confident to resolve any miscommunications or disagreements that occurred during the retrograde phase.

Saturn is especially close to the Sun at the beginning of February, with the exact conjunct occurring at 21 degrees Capricorn on February 4, 2022. This means that Saturn is combust the Sun, indicating the integrity of Saturn is compromised. We may experience issues with impatience, self-discipline, and finding our truth. Power struggles can arise as our desire for individual self-expression increases. We are prompted to listen to our soul’s yearnings. We may also see this on a global/political level as well, in our quest for equality and balance in our world. Saturn transits tend to give us a reality check, with the ultimate purpose of guiding us to express more authenticity, maturity, and committed purpose in our lives.

Kala Sarpa yoga occurs from January 27 to February 9, 2022, and again from February 23 to March 8, 2022. Kala Sarpa yoga occurs when all the planets are sandwiched between the nodes of the Moon, Rahu and Ketu. This yoga is sometimes called “the snake of time” and requires us to respond to life with the highest of ethics and morals, or we suffer. We feel the effect on a psychological level, bringing some dissatisfaction and increased sensitivity. Sometimes we experience less free will and the ability to move forward with this combination. Sudden or unexpected events that are out of our control can occur during Kala Sarpa yoga periods. However, the benefits of this yoga can be positive and growth-producing on a spiritual level if we respond to life with kindness, respect, and humility. Be present with no resistance and open to new possibilities.

Mars and Venus are conjunct in Sagittarius most of February indicating strong passions and creative energies this month. We can feel more vital and enlivened. Then on February 27 and 28, Mars and Venus move to the earth sign of Capricorn, where they are conjunct exactly at 0 to 1 degree of Capricorn. Be aware that when Mars and Venus are conjunct, we may experience greater impatience especially if one’s needs are not met. Frustrations or heated discussions with others can manifest, so be mindful.

On February 26, 2022 Mars, planet of courage, independence, and self-assertion, moves to its exalted sign of Capricorn until April 7, 2022. This is a powerful transit for action-oriented Mars. With Mars in Capricorn, we experience warrior energy that can be invincible, quick-acting, and very efficient. On the shadow side, Mars in Capricorn can be quite relentless, frustrated, overbearing, and militaristic. Use the positive energies of Mars and become more self-disciplined and focused. Improve your stamina with physical activities like yoga, and be an advocate for life-affirming projects or organizations.

Pleiadian-Earth Energy Report for 13 Days Beginning January 27, 2022: Moving Earth Energy

By Pia Orleane

Today at sunset we once again enter Moving Earth Energy. This is a period of extremes- highs and lows, according to whether we react or respond to quickly changing circumstances– a restless period full of movement in all directions! Several days into this energetic Moving period, on February 1, the Chinese New Year begins in the Year of the Tiger. The Year of the Tiger is known to create about BIG CHANGES. We have to be conscious and aware, using our responsibility as co-creators to assure that whatever changes occur are constructive and of higher frequency. The Year of the Tiger showers us with the ambition to make that happen!

We are still experiencing Mercury in Retrograde, challenging us to communicate clearly and respond positively in every situation. But that will change on February 4th. In alignment with this period of Pleiadian-Earth Energy of Moving Energy (lows and highs and sudden movement), according to Western astrology, all planets will be in forward motion between February 3 – 26th. On February 4th specifically, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, and the Sun are all in a positive relationship, bringing us the confidence to do whatever is required.

The Maya considered Moving Energy to be a primal force in the universe. In keeping with the idea of BIG CHANGES and quick movement, we may encounter little deaths and rebirths in Moving Energy, as we experience all the lows and highs that are present in this thirteen-day period. The best use of Moving Energy during Mercury Retrograde is to bring a new vision into things we have already begun, seeking clarity and communication. After Mercury Retrograde, be prepared to deal with whatever shows up in a new way.

With kindness, compassion, and love,

Pia

Super Uplifting Energy Forecast + Helpful Navigation Tools for January 2022 | Emmanuel Dagher

2022: THE YEAR OF THE LOTUS HEART

By Emmanuel Dagher

Happy New Year my friend!

It’s a blessing for me to connect with you in this way. We have so much to catch up on, so let’s get right to it . . .

The theme for 2022 is all about awakening the Lotus Heart.

Embracing the Lotus Heart empowers us to be able to love unconditionally, and to support, nurture, and be a healing presence for ourselves and the world around us.

The energies coming in this year will support us in embracing the Lotus Heart more easily, even with all of the chaos and struggles humanity is working through right now.

This will have a tremendous expanding effect on the next steps of our collective evolution.

The foundations of this next year will be unconditional love, and the ability to support, nurture, and heal ourselves and our environment.

Compassion and empathy will find their way into the hearts and minds of even the most cynical, helping us move past much of the collective fear many people are still working through.

The lotus flower has been quite a significant part of many cultures, from ancient times to present day. The lotus flower represents Divine purity, awakened Love, enlightenment, abundance, and rebirth.

Look at where the lotus thrives the most: it is in the muddiest of waters that it rises and blossoms into its full glory.

This is a powerful metaphor that reminds us of the lotus within ourselves.

It reminds us that on a soul level, we knew, prior to entering this earthly matrix, that even though we would move through the muddy waters of life, we too would use those difficult experiences to blossom into our full glory.

We knew that every experience we went through would move us closer to connecting with and embodying the truest, most Divine part of ourselves.

So what is the Lotus Heart? The Lotus Heart is the part of the heart where Unconditional Love, Divine Peace, and Universal Freedom reside.

These frequencies make up who we are at our core.

When the lotus within our heart is acknowledged often, it blossoms. Eventually, this helps us transcend the habits and patterns of re-creating a muddy personal and collective reality.

We can then understand how all of our past experiences have helped us reach a state of consciousness that allows us to remember and embrace who we authentically are at our core: Love, peace, and freedom.

We have now entered a timeline that can help us soften and eventually dissolve the armor we’ve kept around our heart for lifetimes.

Can you imagine what life looks like when we free ourselves this way?

It Begins with Self-Love

The most important thing we can do to awaken the Lotus Heart, is to love every aspect of ourselves (especially the aspects we have deemed unlovable).

For a really, really long time, most societies have conditioned their citizens to believe they must put everyone and everything ahead of themselves. When we did this, we were deemed to be a “good” and “virtuous” person.

And if we did not abide by this invisible rule of thumb, we were considered to be selfish.

Because being selfish has been so looked down upon, it’s natural that we (especially empaths and sensitives) did everything we could to avoid being perceived that way.

However, what this way of thinking did, was to make us search outside of ourselves for Love and approval. The key word here is search.

What happens when we keep searching for something? We are never satisfied.

The antidote to this never-ending search for Love and happiness, has always been for us to stop searching, and to start becoming the person who loves, honors, and gives themselves everything they thought they needed others to give them.

We came into this existence to love ourselves unconditionally, first and foremost.

We are not talking about egotistical attachment. We are talking about the kind of Love that aligns us with the knowing that by loving ourselves, we open ourselves up to becoming One with everything.

This kind of Love reminds us that we are actually extensions of the Universe, which is always expanding.

Because our mind may have not have had easy access to this way of thinking, it can be a little overwhelming to accept that we are extensions of the Universe, the center of which is pure Light and Love. And that we are here to love ourselves unconditionally so that we can be beacons of Light for the world around us.

If you are feeling a bit of resistance to this idea, be gentle with yourself as the mind anchors this wisdom at its own pace.

Transcendent Love

By setting the intention to have a daily practice of self-Love, we start to replenish our physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual bodies to such a degree that we no longer look outside ourselves to feel happy and whole.

It is from this space of overflowing Love that we can then be of service to, support, and elevate the environment around us. Then self-Love no longer appears as a selfish act, but rather a selfless act that honors and reveres the Universe within ourselves, in others, and in all of life, across time and space.

Self-Love then leads us into Galactic Love, where we transcend all illusions of separation.

Letting Go of the Old Stories

When the world is changing as quickly as it is now, it can bring to the surface deeply buried emotions that can feel uncomfortable. This will continue to happen until we actually face these emotions head-on.

Some examples of things we may want to start taking a closer look at and releasing now are past heartbreaks, traumas, guilt, judgments, debts, and any other false stories we said yes to in the past, thus preventing us from being our greatest selves.

One way of releasing all that no longer serves our highest good, is through the act of forgiveness.

We’re not talking about duality-based forgiveness, where a “good vs. bad” judgment is involved. We are talking about a Universe-supported forgiveness, in which we hand the stories we’ve burdened ourselves with over to the Universe.

This form of forgiveness allows us to transcend the illusion that the past could have been any different. It shows us that the stories we created for ourselves do not define the miracle of who we really are.

To forgive simply means we give forth all that has been weighing us down. Most people often think they are unable to forgive, but what’s really happening is that they are choosing to remain energetically connected to the person, place, or experience that was difficult for them.

Real forgiveness rarely has to do with anyone or anything outside of ourselves. It’s also important to realize that forgiveness is not about condoning something that was done in the past.

Forgiveness is really about setting ourselves free from our judgments of those past experiences.

You may be wondering, how do we get to that point?

Awakening the Lotus Heart

This is where awakening the Lotus Heart becomes irreplaceable.

When we make loving ourselves a top priority and free ourselves through forgiveness by releasing our good/bad judgments, all that is left for the Lotus Heart to be fully awakened, is for us to choose compassion.

Compassion is the ability to love and care for the world around us without feeding into the illusion that it is broken or needs fixing in any way.

Compassion is not to be mistaken for sympathy. When we sympathize, we move our vibration into a forgetfulness that contributes to the illusion that we and those around us are anything less than whole and perfect. This usually leaves us feeling heavy and drained.

Compassion does the exact opposite. It allows us to transcend the limiting stories that we and our society have created for ourselves. When we show true compassion, we create a powerful Love vortex for ourselves and others.

This elevates us out of victim consciousness, and into the empowered co-Creator consciousness of the Universe.

As the Lotus Heart continues to awaken in our personal lives and in the collective consciousness, a world that once seemed broken will suddenly start to look and feel bright, beautiful, and whole again.

Helpful Navigation Tools for 2022

Here are some simple tools to help you navigate through this coming year with greater ease:

  • Make your well-being a priority through daily self-care and self-Love
  • Turn off the news and anything else that thrives on the energy of us being afraid
  • Spend more time in Nature
  • Drink 10 glasses of pure spring water a day
  • Nourish your body with organic, low-carb, GMO-free foods
  • Embrace your emotions by feeling them rather than suppressing them
  • Volunteer or be part of a local cause/community that feels to be in alignment with our true selves
  • Spread kindness and Love wherever you are
  • Meditate or have a good belly laugh for at least 5 to 10 minutes a day
  • Give yourself a healthy outlet to express yourself by being creative with music, art, dance, crafts, or other creative outlets
  • Remember that we are all one family, even though the mind may try to convince us otherwise

Balance

As we move through the year of the Awakened Lotus, balance will also be an important theme to embrace.

As we embrace a balanced life, we may notice that we no longer need to take extreme measures in order to evolve and grow on our journey. We are able to align with a gentler, more relaxed approach to living.

Creating inner balance can sometimes seem like a foreign concept to the mind. The reason being, that humans have amassed thousands of years of narrow mental conditions acquired from cultural traditions, social structures, and belief systems.

These mental conditions affect both the conscious and subconscious mind. Many tend to keep us in a state of inner imbalance that we have come to accept as normal.

We may not even be aware that these conditions are simply a learned behavior.

For example, since the beginning of our experience on this planet, we humans have collectively internalized beliefs rooted in the idea that in order for us to expand, grow, evolve, and experience our desires, our life must be challenging and hard.

This belief is actually a coping mechanism the mind uses to remain rooted in patterns of survival, which it uses to protect itself.

The belief that we have to struggle or work hard for what we want has also served as a kind of initiation for the mind, helping it feel more accomplished and satisfied after overcoming outer obstacles.

But these beliefs have nothing to do with who we truly are.

They are just habits and patterns the mind has identified with, so it could learn lessons, grow, and evolve.

We can be grateful to our ancestors, and all aspects of ourselves from past and present, for choosing to believe that things had to be limited or hard in order for us to grow and learn from them.

Because all of that brought us to where we are now—to a much more enlightened awareness about ourselves, others, and the world around us.

The baton can now be passed from our unconscious self to our Awakened Self. We can now begin to see that moving through life and its challenges can be easy, joyful, and even fun!

As we move into higher states of consciousness, our Spirit gives us the opportunity to let go of the need to believe that life has to be hard in order for us to grow.

From there, we can begin to experience a balanced state of being.

We can create more balance by simply embracing the following three areas of life:

  • Playful fun, physical activity, and spontaneity
  • Creativity, work (doing what you love / mental stimulation), and organization
  • Spiritual work, rest, and personal development
  • Making sure to include each of these in your day will help create the balance our body, mind, and Spirit desire for us to function at our highest and most vibrant state.

May 2022 be one of the most magical years yet for you, and I look forward to catching up with you again soon!

Until next time,

Miraculously Yours,
Emmanuel




Pleiadian-Earth Energy Report: January 1, 2022

By Pia Orleane

We can almost feel the whole world tremble today as we move into the 13-day period of Catalyzing Earth Energy and the beginning of the Gregorian year 2022. This energetic period can be aligned with a bolt of lightning that cuts through the old as the new comes into being. How appropriate as we leave 2021 behind and move into this New Gregorian Year. This is an energy that is known to bring challenges in every direction, which of course, gives us opportunities to move into higher dimensional awareness as we view and deal with these challenges objectively and without emotional reactivity.

We have three major energetic changes happening at once: the beginning of a new Gregorian year, the beginning of a 13-day period of challenge, and the movement of Venus into the phase of Transition. And indeed, we may be seeing death all around us – death of ideas, death of reactive behaviors, death of the old paradigm of living under an illusion. We may also be experiencing the death of people we know or who are part of our lives. Death may be seen as a transition. Change can also be seen as transition, and we are experiencing both.

A fourth major change occurs midway through the 13-day period of Catalyzing energy. The Venus Star moves into the position of Capricorn on January 8th. With Venus in Capricorn, we can expect more structure, discipline, and control. Those who want to control humanity will do their best. But Capricorn energy is also known to be exceptionally strong, and we can use this energy to remember our own strengths as we move through the challenges at hand and create the structures we wish to see.

Catalyzing energy is about community, and we need to consider our global community now with every choice we make. We are being catalyzed into actions that will benefit the highest good for all. We need to be mindful of our connection with others and in unity and catalyze the changes we need for the freedom we seek. Our best use of this energy is to consider every challenge as an opportunity to create a parallel existence that is different and better than the old paradigm illusion. We must absolutely keep our vibration as high as possible and refuse to allow negative or lower vibrational energies to affect us. We must keep our hearts strong and open.

Catalyzing energy is connected to the heart itself. Our Pleiadian friends, Laarkmaa, who gave us this system, have told us repeatedly that all wisdom lives in the heart. And it is from our hearts that we can find the wisdom and strength to move through the current challenges together in unity, as we continue to find our true freedom.

With kindness, compassion, and love,

Pia

Vedic Astrology Report for January 2022

vedic astrology May 2015

By Debra Infante

Venus, planet of love and healing, is retrograde almost the entire month of January, asking us to connect deeply within our hearts. From January 15 to 17, Mars, planet of action and courage, transits the transformative gandanta degrees as it moves from Scorpio to Sagittarius. Mercury, the planet of communications, goes retrograde on January 14, a time for introspection and quieting the mind. Mid-January, the Sun and Saturn begin their conjunction in Capricorn, which can give us more endurance and neutrality while moving through life’s challenges. We become more sensitive to the imbalances in our world.

Venus, the planet of love, relationships, creativity, finances, and healing, has been in retrograde since December 19, 2021 and will go direct the end of the month on January 29, 2022, at 16 degrees Sagittarius at 1:46 AM MST. So for most of January Venus is retrograde, a positive time to do deep, inner healing, especially around issues of self-love and compassion. If you can, let go of old emotional traumas. What do you want to create in your life in 2022? This could be a good time to visit or connect with old and supportive friends. As Venus rules finances and ultimately our values, realize your abundant inner resources and acknowledge your true value and self-worth.

Mars, planet of action and assertiveness, is winding down its transit through its own sign of Scorpio and will enter Sagittarius in the early morning of January 16, 2022. However, from January 15 to 17, Mars will be at 29 degrees Scorpio and 0 degrees Sagittarius, the significant gandanta degrees, as Mars shifts from a water sign to a fire sign. This is a time to be extra careful with amplified frustrations and quick responses. Work with the higher energies of Mars, and be disciplined, patient, and less reactive to any challenges that may surface, as we let go of old forceful ways we may have used in the past. This is a transitional time to embrace working in harmony with others, even if you have different points of view.

Mercury, the planet of communications and travel, goes retrograde on January 14, 2022 at 4:41 AM MST at 16 degrees Capricorn. Mercury will be in retrograde until February 3, 2022. Mercury retrograde periods are great for meditation and contemplative activities. Researching, reviewing, and revising plans and projects as well as reorganizing your home are positive expressions. Sometimes there are delays and last-minute changes in travel plans with Mercury retrograde. Be clear, precise, and observant in all communications with others.

Mercury will be traveling close to the Sun the last half of January, and will be combust the Sun then, meaning the significations of Mercury are weakened. We especially want to be more careful and precise with our communications from January 21 to 25 when these two planets are quite close, and Mercury will be retrograde. The exact conjunction of the Sun and Mercury occurs on January 23 at 9 degrees Capricorn.

The Sun shifts to the sign of Capricorn also on January 14, 2022, the same day Mercury goes retrograde. Now the Sun is traveling with Saturn in Capricorn until February 12, and these two planetary energies combined could give rise to power struggles or greater feelings of imbalances in relationships. Issues of control could surface or become more visible, personally or collectively. Authority figures may be challenged. This is a time for greater self-responsibility, discipline, and realistic expectations in life and in our actions. Work to create equanimity, in your personal life and your relationships, which is a positive virtue of Saturn. This may also be a time when many are re-evaluating their careers, wanting work or service that is authentic, honest, and generates internal growth and deep satisfaction. The Saturn/Sun combination motives us to be efficient and organized with our energies, as we work through adversities. We desire to find our true identity.

Especially during the last week of January we begin to feel the closeness of Saturn with the Sun, with the exact conjunction of Saturn and the Sun occurring on February 4, 2022 at 21 degrees Capricorn. When Saturn transits close to the Sun, its significations are weakened. Lessons in self-discipline and lack of boundaries can surface. Have a regular meditation practice and become more neutral and compassionate with others are positive remedies.

Pleiadian-Earth Energy Report for 19-December, 2021: Transcending Energy

By Pia Orleane, PhD

Today at sunset we move into the 13-day period that will carry us through the end of 2021 and into 2022. Where are we as a species following our evolutionary path? If we used the last 13 days wisely, we have completed whatever was left over from unresolved issues, patterns, or projects. Now the Cosmos brings us a burst of Transcending energy, to transcend what we have left behind. People are leaving the planet, through their own soul and personal choices, as they completed their lives’ purpose on Earth. We who are still here, have put to rest all the things that no longer serve us, if we have done our work. This clears the way for us to move graciously and with gratitude into Transcending energy as we transform the present into what will come next. Each choice we make is doubled in importance. If we wish to leave the old behind, we must release it. If we wish to move forward, we must transcend old emotions and beliefs.

Transcending energy empowers us to reclaim the positive in ourselves, see it in others, and trust it in the universe. It encourages us to transcend everything, as we release old beliefs, old habits of thought, and old reactive patterns of behavior in our lives. It is a very refining energy that encourages us to use discernment rather than judgment to improve upon everything that we think about or do. It encourages us to think of the good of the whole whenever we make any decision. It helps us to be objective and not take things personally with emotional reactivity. This auspicious energetic period will carry us through the holidays, bringing gifts that we may not yet be able to see, and carrying us into the 2022 energy that awaits us.

With kindness, compassion, and love,

Pia
