Scorpio Full Moon & the Wildcard

The Moon is full in Scorpio tomorrow at 5:45PM ET and Mercury with Uranus makes the energy of this lunar peak a bit of a wildcard. Time to finish what you can before it and then relax into an atmosphere as easygoing as you can make it. James Comey, today was fired from his 4yr position as Director of the FBI. He has drawn my attention for a year now and his Scorpio energy fell right into alignment with the “wildcard” and unpredictable energy that is now so active. Interesting that federal authorities had to step in and order airline pilots to return to work. The fighting that erupted at airports is all part of this volatility.  Mercury and Uranus are in Aries that is fire and Mars, planet of war and aggression, in Gemini directly affects flying and all aspects of flight. It would be good to avoid conflict and anywhere there is tension until at least 2PM Thursday. Strive not to let things get out of hand!
Seance and table tipping - things got out of hand!

New Moon in Taurus on April 26 grows until full on May 10 with the Full Moon in Scorpio.
April 28: Venus enters Aries for several weeks; Mercury conjunct Uranus in Aries
May 02: First Quarter Moon in Leo
May 03: Mercury is Direct; the Sun sextile Neptune

The weekly column presents details of daily cosmic activity with interpretation.

Venus in Aries until June 06 creates the impulse to strike out on your own, to venture into new territory and take the initiative. This instills strong urges of desire. It can benefit if you have been lagging your feet or falling behind but want to move forward with a goal. There can be impulsive actions in romance and for any social activity. It should be interesting to look back a few months from now and see how many are unhappy due to acting before thinking. This can really be a positive motivating factor, or, if unsure of what is desired and already walking on the wild side, adventure akin to gambling.

(A few notes from my recent workshop.)

Most cannot travel across the world to visit Stonehenge, the pyramids of Egypt, Easter Island, or the many sacred places throughout the world, although these places continually resonate energy that can be accessed from wherever you are, to gain knowledge, wisdom, healing, and a multitude of gifts and blessings. The sites are links that connect the earth to the stars and other dimensions and you are also connected through your spiritual and ancestral heritage to them.
Everyone is drawn to specific places for very different reasons.
  • Other lifetimes
  • Healing
  • Wisdom and knowledge
  • Change and evolvement
  • Other lifetimes
  • Ancestry
  • Celestial
  • Even uneasiness is a type of affinity. If you feel unsettled about a place then you are tapping into a fear that could be from any source
  • Something or someone in your future
Reasons aren’t always known but we just want to go, as in the movie, Close Encounter of the Third Kind, where the man was compelled to go on faith. That concept isn’t original because it’s a story told many times throughout history, where someone has felt drawn to specific places. The word "encounter" fits well to the reasoning behind the impulse.
It can also happen that something about a place comes to you. Someone brings you a token or gift from a place, or you experience synchronicities about a specific place.
Other types of energy spots are labyrinths, cemeteries, churches and temples, and anywhere there is a designated place that is only for that specific purpose of reference. Counter to that are places that are negative and haunted. Toxic energy can accumulate. Example: sacrifices; violence; dogma gone rogue.
Synchronicity is part of the energy of sacred sites which is why reactions aren’t always blissful or as anticipated. Change is automatic, as explained in the Natural Law of Reaction, so what is the energetic resonance with the specific site is what is activated within you.
Ways to connect: meditation; visualization; contemplation through asking questions when you are thinking about a specific place. Your spirit guides, and other encounters, will give you information and entities connected to the sites will also connect with you. The nature of a place is also activated and connects – the climate, animals, and nature energies such as all life forms.
What you need and want to grow and evolve happens: wisdom; awareness; healing; direction for your life begins to change once you are connected. Enriched purpose and meaning for your life emerges.
The next workshop about this topic will include more time for discussion. You can sign up by sending an email to sandra@sandrahelton.com with, Sacred Sites Workshop, in the subject line.

Try Not to Catch the Hysteria Virus

We're almost into March and it feels like the last 2 months have been more like 9-10. The high intensity that everyone is experiencing is not news in the cosmic scheme of life and it's not ending, as I see it, anytime soon. My recent workshop talked about ways to elevate past the compelling energy to follow and react mindlessly even when not feeling up to doing anything at all. Today brings Mars opposite Jupiter that causes some to be lost in the rush to act without regard for the outcome. In this weeks column I talk about the great mystical doors opening through which we may travel back and forth and from which higher beings come to us to impart guidance and wisdom. Hysteria is contagious so try not to catch it. Centering and focus on priorities helps to deflect influence that would consume your time and energy. The theme of the column this week is about becoming whole and responding to your soul journey.

Mercury sextile Venus
Moon trine Uranus, opposes Sun, sextile Jupiter

The eclipse chart is good for meditation. Eclipse influence lasts all month and is especially in effect until the next New Moon on February 26, 2017 in Pisces which is the same day as the Solar Eclipse in Pisces. The weekly column offers definitions of celestial events and insight about the current eclipse, how it influences the world and each zodiacal sign.
