Service, Carrier Pigeons and Portal Magic Messages
Hello friends. What an odd and interesting week it's been. As of this writing (8/12) we are in the final bit of the Lionsgate (888) portal energies that are expected to wind down today. It's a good thing too, as I don't know how much more of people out of their body while operating heavy machinery (like cars) that I can handle. I'm happy to be at home writing today.
As I usually do, I tune into the energy of the New Moon and see what it shares with me. I was reminded that we are fresh from the powerful Lionsgate portal energies which are highly creative. For a brief moment starting now until 8/15 at 12:46 am PDT, both the Sun and Moon will be in bright, shiny and creative Leo. Sure there will be some folks that may exhibit more of the 'petulant child' behaviors of this energy, but we are always free to tune into its much higher aspects. It has been noted by several astrologers the Sabian Symbol for this new moon underscores the 'service' aspect, which brings us back to the 'Sovereignty' that has been highlighted throughout the entire Lionsgate portal. The best King or Queen is a conscientious and attentive one. This energy is also supported by generous, expansive Jupiter which has just moved from Leo into Virgo earlier this week.
Sabian Symbol for 22 Leo: A carrier pigeon fulfilling its mission: Spirituality, in terms of training for service to mankind.
Carrier pigeons bring messages and were a method of communication in the ancient past, long before technology. I particularly love this, as feel it implies to be more open to spiritual messages that are possibly more shamanic and 'old school;' coming through people, letters through the postal mail, power/totem animals and nature.
The domesticated bird is seen endowed with special significance and purpose. This refers to spiritual energies which are being used constructively and which bring to the consciousness messages from other realms. Individual realizations acquire their true meaning only as they fulfill a collective function. - Dane Rudhyar
Uranus (the great awakener) forms a trine with the Sun, Moon and Venus at the time of the New Moon. This influence can certainly bring change as that is his main focus, but these other energies will temper the force of delivery and correction with a significant amount of gentleness and grace. This is a beautiful thing.
Another thing Leo energies are good at is celebration, so we're looking at another weekend to have it. Instead of feeling indulgent, it feels timely. It's important to balance work with play. As a Capricorn, this is something that I know all too well. To play and let go at times is to nurture the soul. It also can be considered some of the best preventative medicine around.
The great Bill Nelson's music was all over this portal for me personally, and it's been awhile since I shared a Cosmic Tune. I feel this one is absolutely perfect and appropriate. Shine on, Bright Stars!
