Cosmic News June 2012
If you've been feeling
that the energy has been wacky, weird and wired, YAY! It's a good sign that you
are awake. You want to be awake so you don't miss all the fun! This time period
between the solar eclipse on May 20 and the June 4 lunar eclipse has been
energetically intense for most of us, as comfort zones are being pushed hard and
things in progress have been building to their culmination or completion. You
can see clearly now! June is breakthrough month--amazing possibilities, even
what we'd define as "miraculous" possibilities--are available to us. This
newsletter will provide you with ideas about how best to cultivate them and get
your required daily dose of love power. The key themes at this time are
integration and synergy. Additionally, it's important that you are open to new
possibilities. We all tend to get trapped in our history and its outworn habits
and patterns. This is the time period in human history when we are breaking
them. It's great when we meet up with others who are able to show us the way out
of our personal ruts. We are all playing that role of helping each other out
--and it will be rewarding to establish these types of reciprocal spiritual
relationships with others this month. Others are meant to do for us what we
don't know how to do for our self and vice versa. We need each other. We all
have a very important piece of the puzzle to contribute. As Neil Diamond sang,
He ain't heavy,
he's my brother. That's a great mantra for this month! Each and every one of us
has something significant to contribute to the whole and to each other in mutual
Stretching and Adventuring
June is likely to be one of the most intense months of this year because the cosmic planetary dance taking place will have life-changing energetic impacts. And, of course, it's all energy. Let's begin with the June 4th lunar eclipse. Approach it as a Zen full moon. Does that strike you as an oxymoron? I mean, sheesh, everyone knows that the full moon is a time when emotions get a boost, right? And an eclipse at the full moon just adds a whole lot of walloping oomph. That's why this is a Zen full moon--encouraging a chill out this summer, no matter how hot it gets. This eclipsed full moon in Sagittarius says, Have you had enough of the ridiculousness yet? Now's a good time to drop the serious world and chill out. If you are stuck in your head, you are going to miss the point of the journey. And that's the fun of it!
Engaging Zen moments will vitalize--that is, moments of being alert in non-judgmental attentiveness to your own thoughts, actions and feelings. Zen moments put us in touch with that presence within us that abides-- unchanging and undisturbed--no matter what is going on around us. Welcome your soul's presence, a state of 'being' that brings a quality of love and light and meaningfulness and purpose to all that you do.
This eclipsed full moon took place in right-brain Sagittarius opposite the Sun in left-brain Gemini. Opposite signs complete each other--two sides of the same coin. This lunar eclipse energy provides us with an opportunity to integrate the logical, rational mind (Gemini) with the abstract, "anything-is-possible, no-order-of-difficulty" mind (Sagittarius). To be in our totality, both facets of the mind are necessary. Additionally, both facets of our brain also need to be put in service to our heart or soul. While neither Gemini or Sagittarius is inherently judgmental or biased, (all astrological symbolism is inherently neutral), both these signs can get us into deep doo-doo if they are trapped in the indecisive, dualistic aspect of the ego-driven mind. That proclivity is what is being brought to our attention now.
Here's the deal with the June cosmic influences--soul is trying to get our attention. As a human collective, we've gotten ourselves into scenarios that the human mind locked into dualistic, fear-based perceiving and processing can't possibly resolve. Centuries of cultural conditioning have divided and split the human mind and the only way through, is to drop the divided mind and witness from the perspective of neutrality. Drop all beliefs. Drop all dis-beliefs. And open to the inherent genius and unlimited possibilities available to you when you do.
This Magnificent Light of Mine, I'm Going to Let it Shine
June 5 brings the rare Venus transit across the face of the Sun. This transit only occurs in 8-year pairs with over 100 years between the paired alignments. The first of this current pairing occurred in June 2004 while Venus was also retrograde in Gemini. That's why reflecting back upon that time period may be very helpful in navigating this time period. The Venus Transit before that was in 1882 and the next one will not take place until 2117. It will be a good investment of your energy to reflect back on May-June 2004 and the main themes and experiences taking place in your life at that time. Additionally, this Venus transit is the time of culmination for things that have been in focus since the Spring of 2004.
I've heard many people talk about feeling flat and uninspired. If you are feeling that way it is because your soul is trying to show you that facets of your life are not authentic to your being. Notice that it is our conditioning and our desire to belong and fit in that results in most of us holding back the beautiful colors that compose the totality of our self. At this Venus transit, honor the Goddess of Beauty by making a commitment to take at least one tiny step each day to bring forth more of your uniquely colorful self. That will assure you'll break through that dull feeling of "stuckness." Carpe Diem! No day like today!
The culmination symbolized by this rare Venus transit is about reaching our apex of flowering. Historically, Venus transits have been shown to exert a strong influence that encourages breakthroughs in relating and connecting and creating from brilliance. For example, The Taj Mahal, a monument to the highest form of love, was built during the Venus Transit of 1631-1639 AD. Venus is the ambassador of happiness and her energy is focused on enjoying a high quality life experience. She is abandoned to human pleasures, oozing sensuality, fully alive and full of possibilities. Venus' energy within you wants you living in abundance, living in totality, living at the maximum, over-flowing with your blissfulness, reaching out to others to embrace them in celebration of human life!
Both are half and no
person who is half can be contented. You have to be whole: rich in the body,
rich in science, rich in meditation, rich in consciousness. ~OSHO

1) Smile at least once every hour, even if you can't think of a reason to do so, smile anyway. Consciously begin and end each day on a smile. Smiling releases the happy hormone. Pass on smiles everywhere you go. Smile at the sun and the flowers and the birds and bees. Smile even when your heart is breaking. As Nat King Cole sings, Light up your face with gladness. At minimum, smile at least 12 times a day.
2) Practice acts of kindness to yourself--at least one act of kindness each day. Find ways to express your deep, abiding, unconditional love for your perfectly imperfect self! If you hear your mind being critical of your self (or another), immediately correct it and express your unconditional love for your perfectly, imperfect self.
3) Practice conscious breathing. At least three times a day pause and bring your attention to your breath. Still-look-listen-breathe. Breath is the bridge between the conscious and unconscious--no toll required, air is free! As Wayne Muller reminds us, With every breath, the possibility of a new aspect of self arises.
4) Laugh at least five times a day. The best thing about laughter is that it is easy to start an epidemic of laughter. Start such an epidemic for your dear one's. Laugh at life. Laugh at the ridiculousness of the ego-driven mind.
5) Try on a new behavior each and every day and establish new, good-feeling habits to replace the old habits that don't feel good. Sing crazy love songs that make you feel good. Try out dance walking and invite others to join you. Be bold about having fun! Be bold about celebrating life everywhere you go!
It's going to be a great month! I hope you are feeling that too. We are having direct experiences of the truth that we are greater than the conditions in our environment. We need only change our inner state for our outer conditions to line up and match. It's no longer enough to know; we are all being challenged to walk our talk. I'm here to support you in any way that best serves you now. The Venus retrograde reports are still on special.
