9-Month Gestation ~ Labor ~ New Birth

~ 9-Month Gestation ~
~ Prep for Labor ~ Honor New Birth
How Saturn, Uranus & Pluto
Are Changing Your World

"In Initiations, spending a significant period of time
under difficult conditions is part of the dismemberment
that severs one from ease and complacency.
As an Initiatory passage, it will come to a conclusion,
and the newly "sanded down" woman [person]
will commence a refreshed and enwisened
spiritual and creative life."
~ Clarissa Pinkola-Estes in Women Who Run With the Wolves ~

If Winter Solstice/December 2008 was the "Initiation" ~ then where do you stand 9-months later, with 3-months left to go on this year's evolution? How can you consciously contribute to living a "refreshed and enwisened spiritual and creative life"?

Back in December 2008, Pluto was working (for the first time) directly with the personal planets in Capricorn, clearing space for what Saturn in Virgo is ready to build *NOW*. As Saturn moves in to Libra over the next year, it will spend close to 3 years working with the Lord of Transformation to lay the foundation for the next 30 years (and beyond). This suggests that ... the thread that links *ALL* LIFE on this planet and the duality that forces us to cultivate balance (Libra) in our every move is the MOST IMPORTANT factor when considering what we will build (with Capricorn) to serve and support a large group of people (culture, community, country, society at large). The lessons of Libra and Capricorn are *BALANCE* and *RESPONSIBILITY* (respectively). The planets facilitating these lessons are Saturn and Pluto, who will teach you these lessons each in their own unique way, but bring them together and you will truly not be the same person on the other side of these particular activations, nor will it be the same physical world.

Saturn teaches through exposing the cracks in your personal foundation, where you are weak, fearful, frustrated, stagnated, and where you lack commitment and inner authority to make good choices for the long term/big picture (30 year cycle). (Whatever Sign your Saturn is in will have further implications worth examining.) Pluto teaches through exposing your deepest, darkest fears and blowing up any pent up, repressed, unexpressed natural energies ... leaving you raw, completely vulnerable and without any visible assistance (Invisible Assistance is needed here and always available). Pluto is the Ultimate Healer because it goes to the *ROOT* and prepares a truly *CLEAN & CLEAR* space for rebirth or re-creation to happen. You should want this clean start, because very often, 'how you start is how you finish'. So your own inner toxicity levels will determine how long and difficult the clean up will be. Whatever is dead within or around you must be removed for new life to even be able to take root. Pluto in Capricorn will leave us all with a renewed commitment to being responsible, individually and collectively, for the planet (and anything else) which gives and supports LIFE. We know the macro level manifestation of this, but on an individual level, what are you doing to clear a space, to live a life that PRESERVES LIFE & LIGHT?

These two TOGETHER ~ yikes! Change is inevitable, so you should consciously co-create when it is possible ... which is ALWAYS!! Your thoughts, feelings, words and deeds all manifest and, therefore, contribute to the collective results. This will not be easy, but it can be beautiful. We have a double dose of Saturn because it also rules Capricorn, which leads me to believe that we are *BUILDING* twice as much as we are *BULL-DOZING* (with Pluto). Pluto's most delicious contribution to Saturn's 'building' is that this is an unprecedented opportunity to build on *CLEAN* slate! Venus gets involved as She is the ruler of Libra and this too, is poignant. This reminds me of a quote from one of my teachers, on Venus ...

"Remembering that ...
the opposite of "aesthetic" is "anesthetic".
There is no solution to anything unless Venus is involved
- unless beauty and love are present.
~ Caroline W. Casey of CoyoteNetworkNews.com ~

Venus rules what we cultivate, where our priorities lie and what we value most about life. Adding Her to this potent mix can ONLY HELP! Venus also rules magnetics, how/what/who you attract. Venus is considered a personal planet; Saturn, a social planet; and Pluto, a collective planet. Venus has an 8 year Cycle; Saturn, a 28 year Cycle; and Pluto, a 248 year Cycle. So you can see how each affects us at these different levels, and now, simultaneously. It's now officially *ALL* vital ~ individuals / communities / species ~ ALL are vital and participating in the current evolution.

You can (and will) contribute to this evolution in ways that are likely closest to your own nature. Do you do things with calm, ease and grace? Or do you plan and execute with force and sheer will? Would you like to change from one way, to the other? Ahhh ... where does this lead? Right back to *BALANCE*. How about a delicious combination, in equal measure (by your own definition), the strong commitment and unwavering dedication (it usually requires to 'plan and execute with force') ... and ... self-assured grace, style and faith in Divine Time & Order. Yummmm! Use the available Elements, Air & Earth, at their most challenging and creative combination. This takes ideas and concepts and makes them tangible and 'real' (in some way). We must have balanced, creative thought ~co-creating~ with physical work in order to create positive, tangible, useful results. Squares in astrology sometimes mean "squaring off" and sometimes "crossroads/turning points" but always, they mean "moving out of a comfort zone and in to new territory". And from several years of close observation, I can attest to them also manifesting in both challenging and exciting, happy and sad, productive and debilitating ways. It usually comes down to your own individual nature, your available inner strength and fortitude, your personal view of the circumstances (pessimistic or optimistic) and ultimately, your faith and innate desire.

What do you want? How do you define "quality" of life? These *3* planets will assist with this very process ... aahhh - another useful Trinity! Tune in. Invite their energies to animate through you, in the Highest possible way. Embody each planet in the most positive way you can conjure at this time. Co-create. It is time. It is also completely supported. Envision the Infinite Potential of *NOW* ... go with it and build something even better than before.

Sacred Rhythms ~ Ancient & Ever-New

How Divine is it that Virgo precedes Libra! Virgo is the lesson of *DISCERNMENT* ~ discerning what's relevant, useful, healthy, real ... or not. It prompts us every year to take inventory of ourselves and our lives. Theoretically, in preparation for moving in to Libra time when people and culture get involved or become the focus. The Leo New Moon (Aug 20th) set your new intentions for the authentic *YOU*, now a month later, Virgo New Moon (Sept 18th) asks you to perfect *YOU* before you interact or collaborate with others. With all the intensity of "now", plus the several rare planetary alignments, plus the usual activations and seasonal shifts, it can be very challenging to "tend to the details" the way Virgo would prefer. BREATHE. Instead of giving in to the overwhelmed feelings (Shadow Pisces), tune in to the fact that this is the *LAST* Virgo/Pisces Lunation that you will have the added juice of Saturn/Uranus contributing to your work of 'out with the old / in with the new' while mastering your Human/Physical Self and your Spiritual/Divine Self. (Also, keep in mind that both these major planets are moving in to the Aries/Libra dynamic next which will bring on a whole new set of lessons and activations.)

Everything is preparing you for the next thing. 2009 started with a Venus theme and ends with a Mars theme that will dominate 2010. This suggests that if you get your priorities renewed and realigned (Venus) this year, you will be in a much better position to determine your true and deepest desires (Mars) next year, which will position you to finally take some much-needed action steps toward building and creating a life that better reflects your Truth & Purpose. Right now, Mercury is Retrograde assisting with the *REVIEW* process, supporting everyone who turns within right now. It's time to gather a little more information, clarity and understanding before moving on whatever you are discovering about your Self these days. All is not what it seems, most likely. This may actually be a good thing because it leaves room for your conscious intent and Great Spirit to move things around before they are too solid to change.

Where we are now began with Winter Solstice 2008. ALL of December 2008 was Infinitely potent, and by the end of the month, we had Sun, Mercury, Mars (3 of the personal planets) and Jupiter (social planet) joining Pluto (collective planet) in Capricorn, the sign of responsibility, stability and integrity. *FALL* Equinox 2009 brings an opportunity to analyze, digest and assimilate the first full year of Pluto in Capricorn so strongly activating the Solstices and Equinoxes (4 times per year for the next 16 years) ... You are preparing for the coming new Solar year at Winter Solstice ~ December 2009. What have you learned about dancing so closely with Pluto, Lord of Transformation? What have you gained? What have you lost? Use this *FALL* Season to identify what is solid and useful and what is finally ready to be released back in to the Infinite Void of creation.

*FALL* Equinox 2009 also moves some of the personal planets along from Virgo in to Libra, reminding you this is also a time for *BALANCE* ~ of Dark/Light ~ of Feminine/Masculine ~ of Inner/Outer. Pluto being so intricately linked to the Sacred Seasons for the next 15+ years, gives you unprecedented support for the changes you are ready, willing and able to make. At the turn of each Season, there will be intense transformation added to the already potent mix. The Solstices are all about Initiation/Integration and the Equinoxes are all about Growth/Development. Depending on your own alchemical mix, there will be a certain degree of "out of the comfort zone" for everyone. Use it as *FUEL* to facilitate change within your own Being, your own life and your own community. (Resistance and procrastination will prolong the pain and delay your good.)

The issues being brought in to the Light at this time are ...

~ Harvest ~
Assess what you've produced/accomplished
in the last 6-months and 1-year
~ Evaluate & Rectify ~
Assess what worked and what did not work
~ Balance & Integrate ~
Assess what you need to do/have/be
more or less of - going forward
~ Pause for the Cause ~
Transition times are times to be still,
tune in and prepare for new season

Though this is profoundly personal, individual work, many of us share the desire and intention to live in a diverse, peaceful, thriving & dynamic community. How and when that (peaceful and thriving) community manifests, lies within each individual. We are strengthened, fortified and uplifted every time we remember we are NOT ALONE. A solid connection and sense of belonging are incredibly sacred gifts that we will share during this season of *HARVEST* ~ adding juice and power to our individual and collective intentions.

I hope you will join us for the next in a series of dynamic and powerful gatherings of the ever-expanding, truly Infinite Power Circle. Karmic Tools.com Members are from all parts of the US, plus well over 50 other countries around the world. There are countless others organizing major group events around the globe throughout this month of power! That is a lot of potent energy to bring together, even for a few minutes! We are encouraging you to do *SUNRISE* Solo Meditation and then join me and Leilah for our annual celebration of *FALL* Equinox and the turn of the Sacred Seasons.
