Moon in Purva Phalguni/Leo + Shukla Ashtami (8th)
Maybe you noticed.
I’m shifting gears with The ‘new’ Yoga Sanctuary in less than a month. The theme of this shift is Lotus Rising.
Together, we rise up from the muck of the last two years, ready to bloom once again, knowing that fully, in the heart of our heart, we remain untouched and pure. Just like the lotus.
I always find it interesting when ‘shift’ happens. Saturn has been stationary for a while while shifting gears to retrograde. This happens when planets are closer to Earth in their orbital patterns. Because of that closeness, they appear to stop and then move backwards. Actually, they are just closer to the Earth and still doing their thing. Closer to Earth means more of that transmission of energy, whatever it may be.
Personally, for me, Saturn is currently transiting my 12th house and as he retrogrades, he is moving back into my 11th house by the end of the month, which is my circle of influence and friends. Just as this transit was happening, I began to actively shift gears with The Yoga Sanctuary by bringing four other teachers on deck to share yoga. For me Saturn and this transit seems to be saying that I cannot do this alone. I must bring on support and also help others.
Saturn is always making sure we are getting the lessons (the karmic lessons).
Collectively, what does this mean?
From January 24, 2020 through the end of April 2022 Saturn was in Capricorn and that theme is apparent: Unburying our heads from the sand, seeing what we refused to see, hearing what we refused to hear… in order to create a better world as Saturn popped his head into Aquarius last month.
But there is one caveat. Saturn is retrograding and heading back into Capricorn by the end of June and will be there July through December 2022 before sticking with Aquarius through April 2025.
These last six months will be those last lessons of 2020-2022. Did you wake up? Were you willing to see and hear what you weren’t able or willing to see or hear before? Are you willing to take right action? If not, what will it take? THAT is what Saturn will deliver over the next six months.
As ominous as that sounds, Saturn is the great bestower of boons…eventually. But we have to co-participate. Grow. Evolve. Be of service to others. Get on board with that and Saturn will reward you with your heart’s desires.
Several of you have been planting seeds to create new habits (or move away from old patterns). We are 7 days from the Full Moon which is when we really can seal in these intentions with our devotion and commitment. Full Moon is fully reflected light of the Sun, it is full support of Mother and Father. Keep watering and sunning those seeds.
Lotus Rising…up out the muck of the past 2-1/2 hours, the core of who we are untouched and perfectly clear.
