“Three things cannot be hidden: the Moon, the Sun and the Truth.”
………~ Gautama Buddha
2018 is a momentous year for all who want to upgrade and better their life conditions. Many social commentators across the globe have foretold that 2018 is the year of global spiritual awakening. We concur that 2018 continue the transformations commenced in 2017. In 2017 we commenced a Fresh New Cycle in which BREAKTHROUGHS began . But in 2018 it’s time to UPGRADE your consciousness; it is time to begin to experience Total Health of body, soul and spirit.
There are abundant opportunities for all who seek better health as well as peace and prosperity in their lives this year. As we keep mentioning on this site, we live and move and have our being in a field of fluctuating dynamic forces and energies that need our recognition and conscious use or realization. We need to learn to navigate our way thru the many vibrations that surround us. The Universal Law of Vibration explains that everything in the universe is made of energy (or light in motion) that is constantly moving and vibrating at a particular speed. Energy that vibrates slowly is dense and tangible and sits at the lower end of the spectrum, and energy that vibrates fast is lighter and intangible and sits at the higher end of the spectrum. Lower energies of fear, anger, shame etc. are of low vibrations whereas vibrations of love, joy and forgiveness are of higher energies and would give you greater health.
The earth vibrates at 528 MHz, the vibration of peace and love. Humans who vibrate at 500 and over are vibrating at Love and above. For instance John Lennon recorded his song, “Imagine” in 528 MHz thus precipitating peace and love to our world. When we vibrate below 500 it is because of negative thoughts, fear and negative behavior. You can also vibrate below 500 when you are exposing yourself to too much negativity.
Low energy vibration causes sickness in the body, mind and spirit. In fact, illness shows up in the energy body of low vibration first before it shows up in the physical body. In order to be healthy and happy you need to take steps to eliminate and protect yourself from things, people and events that lower your vibration. You also have to do things that raise you vibration.
Our energy pattern interacts, connects, and communicates with all energy on Earth, as well as incoming energies from the universe; therefore, we are intrinsically connected to everything and everyone. Those who have a greater level of conscious awareness of love, joy, peace are more attuned to universal energy which affects everyone positively, particularly those who are highly sensitive. When we have high-conscious awareness, we can naturally tap into incoming energy from the universe and make sense of the data stored within it. When harnessed and utilized positively, universal energy can fuel and guide us to ultimately reach our fullest potential and greatest purpose here on Earth. We can raise our vibration if only we cooperate consciously with these energies!
January (when the Sun is in Capricorn) has always been the month that opens the door to the new year; the Earth is closest to the Sun in December each year, celebrated as the birth of Christ. But January 2018 is unique as it opens on the very first day of the first month with a most illumining Full Moon and Supermoon already discussed in the previous blog. CTH-IN 2018 EVERY GOOD THING IS POSSIBLE. January 2018 also ends with another Full Moon, but this time it’s also an Eclipse of the Moon on the very last day of the month. This is a Total Super Blue Moon Eclipse. A Blue Moon is a second Full Moon that falls within a calendar month and in this case it is also a Supermoon, the fourth Supermoon in a row! So we have a Super Blue Blood Lunar Eclipse in Leo 11°37’ ~ @13:27 UT on January 31st!
So we have a BLUE Full Moon at the end of January combined with our first Lunar Eclipse of the year all in the very first month of the year. What a barrage of energy synchronicities. Eclipses have been studied for centuries across the globe and they are the most dramatic tools that the universe uses to create change. One Astrologer Teacher Robert Wilkinson of www.aquariuspapers.com calls them ‘Cosmic Recyclers that remove what we no longer need in our lives.’ They are fascinating to watch in peoples’ lives because they always bring a twist that they don’t expect. Some eclipses are challenging while others bear gifts and opportunities. Few cosmic events are capable of bringing such dramatically good news as eclipses. Eclipses offer opportunities to REBOOT your system. First, however, let’s define two terms. The headlines and news of most media across the globe hyped the phenomenon of a rare Super Blue Blood Moon Eclipse at the end of January. What is the meaning behind a solar eclipse and a lunar eclipse?
Simone Matthews of www.universallife.com reminds us that “A Lunar Eclipse occurs when the Moon is full and the Earth blocks the Suns rays from partially/fully reaching the Moon, thus the Moon is cast within the Earth’s shadow.
A Lunar Eclipse provides a quantum opportunity to release deep-seated wounds, move beyond old fears and to transcend negative patterns or traits within the shadow self. It is time to ECLIPSE anything that maybe holding you back. During a Lunar Eclipse it is an opportune time to do much inner-work, and illuminate yourself from the inside-out. You will be inspired during the Eclipse/Full Moon to open your gifts to higher degrees of frequency and anchor these on the Earthly plane. It is time to take ownership and acknowledge your divine magnificence and shine brightly from within.”
Look to the Leo/Aquarius ruled houses in your birth chart which can indicate areas of your life that may need a reboot, and remember that lunar eclipses generally bring culmination or closure. As the Moon has traditionally been an image of fortune/fate/karma and circumstance, the Moon being eclipsed is often a sign of the ending of a particular set of circumstances, or the culmination of a particular karmic season of life. We are reminded that sometimes endings bring relief and joy, but at other times they are a little more painful. Either way, this is a powerful moment of change and transformation.
She continues ” A Solar Eclipse occurs on the New Moon, whereby the Moon moves between the Earth and Sun, obscuring Earth’s view of the Sun. The energy of a Solar Eclipse ‘obscures’ our vision forward, such that we can take time to reflect on the present and truthfully see how this relates to our past. The insights gained are not about dragging up old energy, or reliving painful events or experiences, but rather to positively reassess where you have been and use this knowledge to make quantum leaps on your path moving forward.
A Solar Eclipse feels like a mega-amplified New Moon and ….. the energy building has been VERY intense, but (and there is always a but) also has the potential to be wildly transformational… should we choose to surrender to the eclipses greater potential. Eclipses have the effect of pushing you to transform… and the choice comes into being as to whether you choose to do this with grace & ease!”
Eclipses come in pairs and the lunar eclipse of 31 January is followed on February 15th which features another eclipse, this time a solar eclipse in the sign of Aquarius. Solar Eclipses are said to be like mega new Moons. Like all new Moons they symbolize beginnings, but solar eclipses bring powerful changes of life direction. The changes of a solar eclipse do not happen right away, but at this time a seed will be planted, and it will involve Aquarian themes. We might even say that a seed of some kind is being planted, and are urged again to look up where Aquarius is highlighted in your birth chart to see which particular trends are involved, which can be brought to bear fruit this year.
Eclipses are important for everyone, especially if you have planets or angles within 1-2 degrees of the eclipse degree. Then they often coincide with important life events that turn life around, re-route your direction, take you down a path in life that you didn’t see coming. Sometimes change happens close to the eclipse date or seeds are sown and events build towards a major turning point.
Lunar Eclipse Jan 31 ~ 11° Leo 37′
Solar Eclipse Feb 15 ~ 27° Aquarius 08′
Solar Eclipse Jul 13 ~ 20° Cancer 41′
Lunar Eclipse Jul 27 ~ 04° Aquarius 45′
Solar Eclipse Aug 11 ~ 18° Leo 42′
Eclipses offer Opportunities for Change
The energy of a Solar Eclipse ‘obscures’ our vision forward, such that we can take time to reflect on the present and truthfully see how this relates to our past.
The insights gained are not about dragging up old energy, or reliving painful events or experiences, but rather to positively reassess where you have been and use this knowledge to make quantum leaps on your path moving forward.
Whilst a Solar Eclipse can create upheaval in your life, this ‘forced’ opportunity to reassess or re-evaluate your life provides a profound opportunity to leap into a new sphere of existence beyond your perceived limitations.
The specific energy of a Solar Eclipse is also dependent on what sign of the zodiac the Sun & Moon (who are in conjunction during a New Moon) are transiting during the Eclipse.
When a Solar Eclipse is a TOTAL Eclipse (the Earth is sitting within the umbral shadow of the Moon), the energy potential is at its peak. When a Solar Eclipse is only a PARTIAL or ANNULAR Eclipse (the Earth is sitting within the umbral shadow of the Moon), the energetic influence is slightly weakened, though still very powerful.
Eclipses offer opportunities for change. No doubt we as human beings on this planet react to the influence of the cycles of the Moon and Sun known as the Lunation Cycle of 28 days. The Lunation Cycles resonates with the menstrual cycles of the female species of the human kind. People have observed for centuries that during certain phases of the Lunation Cycle, plants would grow taller, seeds would germinate faster, animals become restless and there are more admissions to psychiatric wards especially when the moon is full.
Welcoming Saturn the Lord of Karma to her own domain
The Blue Full Moon of the very first month of 2018 takes place on 31st. Jan 2018 and is occulted in 12 Leo inspired by the Sun placed in 12th. Degree of humanitarian and service-oriented Aquarius. But before this Blue Full Moon Eclipse is the first New Moon of the year of 2018 on January 17. This first New Moon of 2018 ushers in the Archetype of practical Reality, Saturn into her own sign of Capricorn. This New Moon highlights 6 planets including Saturn all placed in Capricorn welcoming the Lord of Karma to her own domain. She entered her own domain around the last Winter solstice of 20 Dec 2017. Capricorn carries the energies of Saturn, the cosmic Cop. Saturn is the stern schoolmaster, professor, boss and policeman. Under Saturn we must do the work, play by the rules, be accountable and exhibit self-discipline and maturity under his influence. Saturn forces us to face the past in the present and helps us prepare for the future in the present.
Themes of Saturn
Saturn is the great Teacher of Life. She forces us to face our responsibilities. It is said that experience is the best teacher: Saturn gives structure and brings maturity to all things, forces us to keep our feet on the ground ensuring we do what is right regardless; she frowns on and controls haste and impetuosity. Saturn takes us on the path of Mastery of self and mastery of our life.
But Saturn will be in the sign she rules for the next three years or so, emphasizing responsibility and social service, we should as souls become increasingly conscious of the needs of the whole community in which we live. Although Saturn is the great disciplinarian, she is also the bringer of harmony and beauty, for it is said that there can be no beauty without discipline and devotion.
UPGRADE YOUR CONSCIOUSNESS
The vibrational frequency of our planet is known to have been increasing at incredibly fast speed in recent times. As Earth’s frequency heightens our own personal energy, our frequency is also being pulled upward, and although this will happen whether we are consciously or unconsciously aware of it, it will rise at a much faster speed if we work with it consciously. As our vibration rises, we will each go through a personal transformation as we evolve and shed old ways of thinking, feeling, and believing—and as we expand our consciousness through becoming more intuitive, awakened, and enlightened.
Unlike regular full moons, in which the energy lasts for a few days, the highly charged, intense, life-altering energy of this trio of Supermoons will be felt consistently from November and December’s SuperMoon until the SuperMoon at the end of January. Those who are highly sensitive to energy will have been sensing the intensity in the atmosphere since late November, when the highly charged energy started to develop, and will have noticed that although there have been high and low periods, generally the intensity has remained at a peak.
A SuperMoon occurs when the moon’s orbit is closest to the earth, resulting in the moon being approximately 14 percent closer than normal, around 30 percent brighter, and appearing far bigger in the sky. Could this mean we can vibrate 30 percent higher? The moon is known to wreak havoc with Mother Nature, resulting in landslides, higher tides, earthquakes and volcanoes—and these are often more severe when the moon is at its fullest. When we think about how the moon’s gravity affects the tides, it is easy to see how it also interacts with living creatures.
The gravitational and magnetic push and pull of a SuperMoon can feel like an immense energetic onslaught and causes us to feel emotionally fragile at times; however, if we do not allow the energy to overwhelm and overpower us, it can help us learn some of our most difficult life lessons. It an help those who want to upgrade their lives; it can give the push to transform and uplift your life.
We are not human beings here to have a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings here to have a human experience
During Full Moons and especially SuperMoons, there are masses of luminous energy infiltrating Earth’s atmosphere—and absorbing it can be over-stimulating, which may make us feel emotional, drained, and fatigued. The universe is constantly communicating with us by offering synchronicities, signs, symbols, and offering subliminal messages, which we can decode to enhance our earthly experience. When we receive this information, our senses are alerted, and we notice them as goose bumps, déjà vu, chills, shivers, or through visions and dreams.
We are energy beings and are all interconnected through the collective consciousness. Whenever an energy shift occurs, our consciousness is upgraded, and our senses and intuition become enhanced to guide us so that we make essential life alterations, which allow us to vibrate on a higher frequency.
Prayer and Meditating are very important at these times. The ability to tune into higher dimensions and receive messages from the cosmos is increased as well as astral travel and lucid dreaming. Many groups around the world organize prayer and meditation events and camps to celebrate and anchor down the forces and energies beneficial to mankind. Joining Meditation Groups can help consolidate your spirituality. Research has shown that meditation helps to reduce stress, focus the mind, and relax the body.
The destiny of humanity depends on which level the people react or respond to the energies and forces reaching them. If the majority of the people react to the energies and forces with the centers below the diaphragm, the base of spine, sacral and solar plexus centers, wars, corruption, poverty and destruction ensue and will continue. But if the majority of people respond to the energies and forces from the heart, throat, and head centers we will see beauty, goodness and truth, peace, progress and prosperity unfolding in our world.
