Quantum physics has already shed some light on the role of consciousness and reality. There are multitudes of studies and phenomenon that also show how they are intertwined, and one of them is called psychokinesis.

-->Free e-Guide - Your Body Electric: An Introduction to Bioenergetics: Dr. Christine Schaffner will help you learn the basic principles of energy, frequency and vibrational healing! Click here to learn more!

One (of many) areas of psychic research is Psychokinesis, also know as PK. This encompasses the possible influence of human consciousness on the behavior of physical or biological systems or processes, and comprises several loosely related classes of effect characterized by different scales of energy, forms of manifestation, replicability, and statistical behavior.(1) It’s the ability of consciousness to have a direct effect on our physical material world. It’s the action of mind on matter. (14 section 5.0) PK encompasses much more than just moving objects with the mind, that is more so referred to as telekinesis. It encompasses the idea of consciousness and its correlation to the physical world we perceive around us on a daily basis.

Psychokinesis is one phenomenon out of many that is grouped under the subject of parapsychology. You can’t understand psychokinesis without having a brief background on parapsychological phenomenon within the scientific community, which is considered psychical research. This article will provide a brief background on parapsychological studies and then go more in-depth into the phenomenon of psychokinesis. I will also provide a good deal of evidence throughout the paper to back up my claims.

Psychic phenomenon has always been considered a ‘persistent paradox’ from the perspective of most researchers and scientists within the mainstream world. This is predominately due to a lack of investigation. It’s not fair to condemn a topic without having investigated it first. Psychic phenomenon has attracted man’s attention throughout recorded human history, but scholarly efforts to comprehend them are very young, approximately one hundred years old.  Parapsychologists have been trying to gather experimental evidence for years and although a lot of information has been gathered, psychic phenomenon still seems to be grouped in the category of science fiction to most, which is extremely absurd given the amount of scientific data available on the subject. This is something we need to change, and the recognition of non physical phenomenon and how consciousness can have a direct effect on our physical material world is an important step for the evolution of science, as well as humanity as a whole. Today, the missing link within science is consciousness, and how our emotions, feelings and vibrational frequency play a tremendous role and have great implications on what type of world humans are experiencing.

Critics who argue against psychic phenomenon do so from a place of belief. Meanwhile, there has been numerous, consistent, replicable evidence to support it (as you will see within the article). The problem with parapsychology is that it challenges deeply rooted worldviews held by so many people. When evidence is presented against a belief system that one holds strong, there is a very strong desire to dismiss it and not even look at the evidence, this is called cognitive dissonance and sometimes it can be the minds most common reaction to new truths.

There is a growing realization that ideological factors play a crucial role in many scientific “controversies”. Many have argued that the ‘naturalistic’ world view is more a political or religious ideology than a position that’s supported by evidence.(2)

Materialists have conducted a running war against psi research for decades, because any evidence of psi’s validity, no matter how minor, is fatal to their ideological system. (2)

This controversy (whether psychic phenomenon is real or not) has lasted for quite some time now. Apart from the fact that these concepts challenge world paradigms, another reason for the controversy might be the fact that a large portion of it is dipped in secrecy. Without access to much of the scientific data and observation of and regarding parapsychology, how are we supposed to come to any solid conclusions about it?

We knew the Earth was flat, we knew that we were the centre of the universe, we knew that a man made heavier than air peace of machinery could not take flight. Through out human history, intellectual authorities have pronounced their supremacy by ridiculing or surpressing elements of reality that simply didn’t fit within the framework of accepted knowledge  – Terje Toftenes (15)

In 2004, a United States Air Force research project titled, Teleportation Physics Study, authored by Eric Davis, Ph.D., shows that psychokinesis and other parapsychological  phenomenon  have been subject to rigorous  research and documentation for a number of years by several researchers. (14 pg 65 of 88)

One example of this is the 24-year government-sponsored program to investigate ESP and its potential use within the Intelligence Community.  The final report was released in 1995, and the CIA concluded that a statistically significant effect had been demonstrated in the laboratory. This operation was called STAR GATE, and most of its research and findings remain classified.(3) The Department of Defence suppressed a large amount of data from this 24 year study.

Another example of parapsychological research conducted in secrecy was the remote viewing experiment done by the CIA and NSA in conjunction with Stanford university.(4)(5)(6) This program was marked as a special access program, these are programs that have no oversight from the congress, nobody has any idea of them, their findings and what they are used for (14 section 5.0). Remote viewing is the ability of individuals to describe a remote geographical location and its characteristics up to several hundred thousand kilometers away from their physical location. This program lasted for several years, and was shut down unexpectedly with a large portion of the research and findings remaining classified. Individuals within the program were also able to remote view beyond the planet.

These two experiments alone illustrate that science and research at the very highest levels of government were and are very interested in parapsychological phenomenon.  How can the mainstream scientific world dismiss it when the Department of Defense doesn’t? Another explanation as to why these type of phenomenon don’t exist is because many are simply afraid of it, and not ready for it yet.

Recent leaks from Edward Snowden  recently shed light on the black budget. An area within the defense sector that garnishes trillions of dollars a year. The programs within this department are extremely secret, so secret that a 1997 US Senate report described them as “so sensitive that they are exempt from standard reporting requirements to the Congress.” (7) Judging by the information we already have within the public sector with regards to parapsychological phenomenon, a large portion of this research (again) remains classified. That means all of the scholarly efforts to understand and comprehend this phenomenon cannot be known at large when it comes to public information. This is classified science, which still has enough evidence in the public domain to support its validity, although most peoples intuition already tells them so.

According to our best estimates, more than half of all U.S. government records are classified. For an archivist seeking to preserve and understand our history, that means most of our history is kept secret from us, Think about that for a moment – Richard Dolan (Learn more about what he calls the “breakaway civilization” here)

Now that it’s clear that the Department of Defense remains in possession of most of the information and research conducted with these phenomenon, let’s examine what is currently available within the public domain (apart from the information and papers that are referenced earlier, which provide a great deal of information by themselves alone). What is known in this secretive world could be hundreds of thousands, even million years more advanced compared to the ‘normal  mainstream world.”

One example are human aura and intentions. Not lot ago, a Russian scientist and Princeton professor demonstrated that the human energy field is responsible for changing the physical material world.

We are developing the idea that our consciousness is part of the material world and that with our consciousness we can directly influence our world. With our emotions, with our intentions we can directly influence our world” (8) – Dr. Konstantin Korotkov, Computer Science and Biophysics Professor

Human beings cannot see much of the visible light spectrum, there is a whole world of unseen energy that can be difficult for the mind to grasp without scientific measurements for verification. One method to bridge this gap is bioelectrophotography. The goal of this is to capture these energy fields seen as a light around the body. In the metaphysical world, this energy emission is known as a person’s aura, in the scientific field it’s known as our energy field. This is included in PK because it is the effect of our electromagnetic field on our biological system, it is consciousness influencing and changing physicality.

Bio-electric phenomena has been a part of medicine throughout history. In fact, the first written documents on these events date back to an ancient Egyptian hieroglyph of 4000 B.C. The Greek philosophers Aristotle and Thales experimented with amber and recognized its power to attract light substances. The detection of bio-electric activity is old, and many contemporary ideas of it were actually developed years ago. (9)  Bioelectic and bio-magnetic fields formed by the body have a direct effect on the physical material world. This is one example of known science within the mainstream which could have tremendous implications for health care and more.

Random Event Generators (REGs) are another example. To determine the effects of the minds intention on the physical world, several machines called random number generators have been built, most notably by Princeton. (10)(11) The machine mimics a coin flip, and the results are recorded over a long period of time. In this particular experiment, the machine performed 200 flips per second and produced an average mean of 100 as one would expect. Left unattended, the machine would continue to produce results that suggested a 50/50 change of producing either heads or tails. When human intention was added to the question, what was once a random 50/50 chance of producing heads or tails began to deviate from expectation as the observer began to intend for the numbers to be higher or lower. While the effects of the mind over the machines were not large, they were enough that modern physics could not explain them.

The experiment I am referring to was conducted by Dr Robert G. Jahn, who spent 25 years gathering a large database of empirical data on psychokinesis that clearly suggests the phenomena is a reality. He founded the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research group which has conducted several experiments under controlled, scientific conditions to measure the effect of the power of the human mind using a wide range of instruments.

Jahn showed repeated and consistent results in mentally affecting material substances in the lab, and in the 1980s Jahn attended a meeting on the PK topic at the Navel Research Laboratory, and warned that foreign adversaries could exploit PK to include U.S. military fighter pilots to lose control of their aircraft.  (14 section 5.0)

Reported cases of human beings able to exhibit this phenomenon are also around, although often left in the realm of conspiracy theory. Those who have been reportedly shown to do so are instantly made to look like a fraud, so using them as examples is unnecessary. Maybe there are many who choose not to go public with it. Psychic Uri Geller reportedly demonstrated PK mental bending during a talk that he gave at the U.S. Capitol building. He caused a spoon to curve upward with no force, and then the spoon continued to bend after he put it back down and continued with his talk.  (14 section 5.0)

The Global Consciousness Experiment

The global consciousness experiment is an experiment initiated by the Institute of Noetic Sciences alongside Princeton University (12)(13).

Also working with Dr Jahn was Dr Roger D. Nelson. Instead of testing one individual at a time he used the same methods to test groups of people. Working in group meditations to begin with, he connected 70 REGs in locations around the world to his computer at Princeton. This was called the Global Consciousness Project, also known as the EGG project. It is a multidisciplinary collaboration of scientists, engineers, artists and others. Data has been continuously collected from a global network of physical random number generators (as mentioned earlier) that were located all over the world. This project contains more than a decade of data.

The purpose of this experiment was to examine correlations that may reflect the presence and activity of consciousness in the world. It illustrated that when millions of people are sharing intentions and emotions the EGG data show meaningful departures from expectation. What this means is that when human consciousness becomes coherent and synchronized, the behavior of random systems may change.

The list goes on, and there are literally hundreds, if not thousands of credible research material to suggest that these type of phenomenon are real. How far down the rabbit hole it goes and what has already been discovered still remains classified to the world of mainstream science. Perhaps we are on the brink of finding out.

Regardless of what our black budget world has already discovered, it’s becoming clear that the masses are waking up to the fact that consciousness has a direct effect on our physical material world. Emotions and feelings are the key to creating change, if more people came from a place of love, understanding and peace from within themselves, a different type of reality would no doubt slowly begin to manifest on this planet, which I believe is currently happening .

In a riveting discussion Wayne Morris interviews CE founder Joe Martino on the Breathing Deep podcast. They explore making sense of our current world through a spiritual perspective. In the episode, you’ll  explore what Collective Evolution is about, its history and objectives of investigating current events and the world via personal transformation and expanding consciousness. They discuss the power of curiosity, belief vs. knowing, what is truth, and how the failures of modern science dogma are contributing to public confusion. We talk about the pitfalls of navigating “conspiracies”, confirmation bias, the polarization of the public discussion around Covid and how we can individually and collectively determine truth in a media landscape of deceit. What is the role of spirituality in this process of sense-making? Click here to listen to or download the episode

Intuition Is A “Superpower” Representing One of The Highest Forms of Intelligence

Avatar

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A number of experiments have shown that human intuition is quite real and in some cases can be measurable.

  • Reflect On:

    How often do you use your intuition when it comes to decision making in your life? How often do you trust your gut instinct and follow your heart?

Mainstream science has been catching on to the fact that non-physical aspects of the human being are not only real, but they can be grown and developed into powerful tools for personal development and use. Non physical phenomena, like intuition, remote viewing, telepathy, and precognition (to name a few) for example, have been studied at the highest levels of government for decades. Various nations have poured millions if not billions of dollars into these programs for with demonstrated repeated success, but despite this fact these findings remain heavily unacknowledged, ridiculed, “classified” and in many cases chucked in the “pseudoscience” bucket.

It’s understandable, new information and discoveries have always been heavily opposed and “scoffed” at by intellectual authorities, especially if these discoveries don’t fit within the accepted framework of knowledge. There’s a general tendency to dismiss ideas that go against the grain and conflict what we’ve previously convinced ourselves is truth.

So, what exactly is intuition? A good way to describe it is a gut feeling, a sense, or a feeling about something. It’s arriving to some sort of truth about something, an event or experience without using any type of analytic reasoning. Intuition has been measured, which is why the US Office of Naval Research (ONR) admitted to developing methods to develop and measure this phenomenon for their soldiers.

We have to understand what gives rise to this so-called ‘sixth sense,’ says Peter Squire, a program officer in ONR’s Expeditionary Maneuver Warfare and Combating Terrorism department. Today’s Navy scientists place less emphasis on trying to understand the phenomena theoretically and more on using technology to examine the mysterious process, which Navy scientists assure the public is not based on superstition. “If the researchers understand the process, there may be ways to accelerate it — and possibly spread the powers of intuition throughout military units,” says Dr. Squire. The Pentagon’s focus is to maximize the power of the sixth sense for operational use. 

As mentioned before, many interesting abilities that go beyond the conscious mind and utilize what some would call metaphysical aspects have long been used by governments and intelligence agencies. Perhaps one day the human race will use these abilities for progress and to better the human experience. It’s like technology, do we use it for the good of humanity or do we use it to build more powerful and destructive bombs and weaponry? This is why we here at Collective Evolution always emphasize that humanity needs a shift in consciousness. Our discoveries and developments don’t really matter, it’s more so the consciousness behind those discoveries that do. This is why we believe that the greatest and most potent form of change comes from within.

Dr. Judith Orloff, MD, Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at UCLA told Forbes that, “In my my private practice, I work with women executives who come to me to develop their intuition. They see it as a ‘superpower’ to use in all decisions at work as well as a guide for how to be good leaders and organizers” According to Dr. Orloff, scientists believe intuition operates through the entire right side of our brain, the brain’s hippocampus and through our gut (digestive system has neurons as well).

Alexandra Mysoor, the writer of the Forbes article goes on to explain:

When the neurotransmitters (chemical messengers) in your gut fire up, you may be feeling either “butterflies” or queasy sensations. Pay attention to those. It’s no accident we use the term intuition and gut feeling interchangeably because science has now shown us that our gut has a brain of its own, a second brain so to speak. In fact, our gut has an entire network of neurotransmitters called the enteric nervous system.

The body is truly an amazing puzzle, and we probably haven’t moved beyond the tip of the iceberg when it comes to discovering what we are actually capable of.  For example, a study (meta analysis) in the journal Frontiers in Human Neuroscience titled “Predicting the unpredictable: critical analysis and practical implications of predictive anticipatory activity” examined a number of experiments regarding precognition. These experiments indicate that the human body can actually detect randomly delivered stimuli that occur 1-10 seconds in advance. In other words, the human body seems to know of an event and reacts to an event that has yet to occur. What occurs in the human body before these events are physiological changes that are measured in the cardiopulmonary, the skin, and the nervous system.

Pretty cool, isn’t it? Another article written for Forbes written by Bruce Kasanoff by explains,

Intuition, argues Gerd Gigerenzer, a director at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development, is less about suddenly “knowing” the right answer and more about instinctively understanding what information is unimportant and can thus be discarded.

Gigerenzer, author of the book Gut Feelings: The Intelligence of the Unconscious, says that he is both intuitive and rational. “In my scientific work, I have hunches. I can’t explain always why I think a certain path is the right way, but I need to trust it and go ahead. I also have the ability to check these hunches and find out what they are about. That’s the science part. Now, in private life, I rely on instinct. For instance, when I first met my wife, I didn’t do computations. Nor did she.”

A paper published in 2008 by Dean Radin, Chief Scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) explains,

Intuition is widely regarded as a key source of inspiration in medical diagnosis, technological innovation,business decisions, artistic achievement, and scientific discovery. Based upon an analysis of the lives of numerous scientific icons, Root-Bernstein concluded that “Virtually without exception, the greatest mathematicians and scientists assert that the development of this pictorial, visual, kinesthetic, or generally sensual algorithm (associated with intuition) is the basis for scientific thinking. But what is intuition? Given its central role in advancing science and civilization, one might expect that this topic has been a keen subject of inquiry, especially within academic psychology, for many decades. Surprisingly, until recently it has been studiously ignored. This may be because the quasi-magical, non-rational nature of intuition presents an embarrassing challenge to science, which prides itself on the power of rational knowing. Intuitive knowledge does not appear to function like the methodical interferences associated with rational thought.It arises “in a flash,” or “out of the blue,” sometimes with correct answers to thorny scientific and technical problems, elegant solutions to complex mathematical theorems, and complete scores for intricate musical compositions.

The Institute of HeartMath alongside Radin conducted an interesting experiment a few years ago. They explain,

Twenty-six adults experienced in using HeartMath techniques and who could sustain a heart-coherent state completed two rounds of study protocols approximately two weeks apart. Half of the participants completed the protocols after they intentionally achieved a heart-coherent state for 10 minutes. The other half completed the same procedures without first achieving heart coherence. Then they reversed the process for the second round of monitoring, with the first group not becoming heart-coherent before completing the protocols and the second group becoming heart-coherent before. The point was to test whether heart coherence affected the results of the experiment.

Participants were told the study’s purpose was to test stress reactions and were unaware of its actual purpose. (This practice meets institutional-review-board standards.) Each participant sat at a computer and was instructed to click a mouse when ready to begin.

The screen stayed blank for six seconds. The participant’s physiological data was recorded by a special software program, and then, one by one, a series of 45 pictures was displayed on the screen. Each picture, displayed for 3 seconds, evoked either a strong emotional reaction or a calm state. After each picture, the screen went blank for 10 seconds. Participants repeated this process for all 45 pictures, 30 of which were known to evoke a calm response and 15 a strong emotional response.

The results of the experiment were fascinating to say the least. The participants’ brains and hearts responded to information about the emotional quality of the pictures before the computer flashed them (random selection). This means that the heart and brain were both responding to future events. The results indicated that the responses happened, on average, 4.8 seconds before the computer selected the pictures.

How mind-altering is that?

Even more profound, perhaps, was data showing the heart received information before the brain. “It is first registered from the heart,” Rollin McCraty Ph.D. explained, “then up to the brain (emotional and pre-frontal cortex), where we can logically relate what we are intuiting, then finally down to the gut (or where something stirs).”

This study showed that the heart, alongside the brain, has some sort of intuitive intelligence.

The Takeaway: We are living in a day and age where new information and evidence are constantly emerging, challenging what we once thought was real or what we think we know about ourselves as human beings.  It’s best to keep an open mind. Perhaps there are aspects of ourselves and our consciousness that have yet to be discovered. Perhaps if we learn from this information it can help us better ourselves and others.

We live our lives constantly thinking and analyzing, we grow up in school memorizing and we are not really taught anything about our feelings, emotions and intuition. Imagine the difference it would make in our individual and collective lives if we grew up learning how to trust our intuition, how to follow it and what it is? It begs the question, how many of us truly follow our heart? We seem to be thrust into a system that encourages us to find the best job and really think about our future. There’s nothing wrong with that but we have to ask ourselves, what impact does it have on us mentally if we do not follow our heart, our intuition? Are we seeing a big rise in drug use, depression and other mental issues because society forces us to in a direction we really don’t desire to go? Are we unhappy because we are not engaging in things that our heart desires to engage in? Are we not doing enough of what we love? Something to think about. Never ignore the voice of your gut, your heart, your intuition. It’s always telling us something and it’s time we ‘listen.’ This applies to all experiences, from deciphering information and truth to determining what path it is you want to take in life.

These days, it’s not just knowing information and facts that will create change, it’s changing ourselves, how we go about communicating, and re-assessing the underlying stories, ideas and beliefs that form our world. We have to practice these things if we truly want to change. At Collective Evolution and CETV, this is a big part of our mission.

New Moon In Capricorn: Power Struggles, Intensity & Renewal

Avatar

Published

on

We are having a New Moon in Capricorn on January 13th throughout most of the world and on the night of the 12th in Central to Western North America. This is initiating a 29.5 day lunar cycle and new wave of energy for the coming month; however, the astrological configurations mentioned in this article will be more prominent over the following two weeks. This cycle will include a Full Moon in Leo on January 28th/29th.

Capricorn season began on the December 21st solstice, just over three weeks prior to this lunation, and will end on January 19th/20th when Aquarius season begins. However, this New Moon will carry some of the Capricorn energies into the earlier part of Aquarius season.

This is a good period of working with and co-creating with the energies of this sign. Capricorn is associated with structure, ambitions, achieving goals, mastery, business, career, social status, responsibilities, duty, authority, governance, and hard work. It is cautious, worldly, conservative, and pragmatic. As an Earth sign, it has the qualities of practicality, reliability, solidity and being grounded. This element is very much orientated around the physical and material world. Negatively, Capricorn energy can be too serious, cynical, cold, controlling, and unrelenting.

New Moon Conjunct Pluto

This New Moon is aligned with Pluto which is also in Capricorn. This energy can be strong willed, focused, calculated, strategic, secretive, transformational, probing, deep, regenerating, sexual, cleansing, purging, and evolutionary. It can also be destructive, heavy, controlling, intense, subversive, obsessive, compulsive, jealous, power seeking, authoritarian, abusive, violent, manipulative, and dark.

Pluto rules investments, taboos, transmutation, hidden matters, repressed feelings, shadows, psychoanalysis, and the underworld. It is associated with power struggles, conspiracies, viruses, death, fears as well as fearlessness. This Plutonian energy will be strongly felt during the New Moon and in the two days following it, but it will still affect the entire Lunar Cycle.

Pluto has been in Capricorn since 2008 and will be there until 2024. Collectively, this is a period of major changes affecting government, financial structures, and business in a big way. This has been more obvious in recent years as Saturn, the Lunar South Node, and Jupiter have all joined Pluto in the same sign. This will continue to be a big theme over the remaining years of Pluto in Capricorn and beyond. We also recently had a Great Conjunction in Aquarius on December 21st which also reflects changes affecting society in a big way over a long period.

This Lunar Cycle can really trigger the collective impact of this energy especially considering the current landscape. To learn more about all of this, I recommend reading my Pluto in Capricorn article from 2017 here and my more recent Great Conjunction article here.

Mars Conjunct Uranus In Taurus Square Jupiter & Saturn in Aquarius

The action oriented Mars recently changed signs into Taurus on January 6th/7th and has since been approaching Uranus, the planet of surprises and rebellion, in the same sign. They are both applying squares to Saturn and Jupiter in Aquarius which are still in close proximity with each other.

During this New Moon, from January 12th-14th, Mars is in a square with Saturn which is the first exact aspect made between these four planets. Our actions can be faced with obstacles, delays, resistance, or limitations. Conflicts around boundaries or restrictions can play out. Doing tasks may require extra patience and caution.

As this is finishing, Jupiter will be going into an exact square with Uranus from January 14th to the 19th. This energy can be freedom seeking, rebellious, scattered, idealistic, or even risk taking. It could be good for exploring, learning, education, or expansiveness around things that are new to us, unconventional, technological, scientific, progressive, or metaphysical.

Mars then makes its exact conjunction with Uranus from the 19th to the 21st while it is finishing its square Jupiter. It can really crank up the energies mentioned above and this energy can also be impulsive, erratic, experimental, disruptive, surprising, irritable, and quick tempered.

From the 21st until the 24th, Mars will then be in exact square with Jupiter. We may feel like doing things in a big way but it’s important to be cautious around what we do because we can more easily apply ourselves in a way that is overextending, overestimating, or overlooking of important things. Conflicts around beliefs, opinions, judgements, and principles can play out.

During the later part of this period, the Sun will be in a conjunction with Saturn from the 23rd to 24th. This can have a serious tone, and perhaps the need to be realistic, cautious, orderly, disciplined, committed, or responsible, may come up. Following this, the Sun will be making aspects to Jupiter, Uranus, and Mars in the last week of January and into the first few days of February which can trigger some of the energies mentioned earlier in this section.

The combination of all of these planets in close proximity to aspects with each other throughout January can be good for applying ourselves in new ways that are congruent with changes that are happening personally or collectively. However, it can also be a time of anger, impulsiveness, and rebelliousness towards obstacles, restrictions, opinions, beliefs, authority figures, as well as other recent or upcoming developments, circumstances, or changes.

Venus Square Chiron &  Trine Uranus, Mercury Entering pre-Retrograde Shadow

Venus in Capricorn is in a square with Chiron in Aries at the time of this New Moon and in the day leading up to it.  This can bring up wounds, blockages, negative patterns, or can reflect themes around healing, holistic perception, or perhaps solutions when it comes to love, our social life, friends, pleasures, values, or monetary issues.

Venus is also in a trine with Uranus in Taurus which is strongest in the day and half following this New Moon. It can bring a new, stimulating, unusual, exciting, inspiring, liberating, unexpected, or unique energy around our relations with others.  This can also reflect surprises, positive changes, or freeing type of developments around financial matters. In some cases it can be good for exploring new ways of making money that can be innovative, online, metaphysical, or technologically oriented.

On January 15th, Mercury in Aquarius will be entering the shadow period of its retrograde that will be beginning on January 30th/31st and last until February 20th/21st. It can increasingly start to feel like it’s retrograde during these weeks leading up to it as delays, technological/mechanical problems, mistakes, miscommunications, misunderstandings, or other complications can be more probable than in the previous six weeks.

Certain developments, interactions, connections, or issues that occur at this time can be connected to how this retrograde will affect us in February through its adjusting and perceptive changing qualities. There can be something we are not seeing clearly that needs to unfold throughout the upcoming retrograde and post-retrograde process. I will be writing a separate article on this, you can join my mailing list here to ensure that you receive it.

Making Intentions & Things To Consider

What changes do you need to make when it comes to your ambitions, career, structures, or business matters? What can you do to make your profession more congruent with a changing world? What are you fighting for and what can you do to be more calculated, effective, and persuasive? What kind of strategies can you employ to help you achieve your goals? Do you need to be more innovative when it comes to making money? What area of your life is calling for some sort of purging, cleansing, empowerment, and/or transformation?

These are just some examples of what to consider or focus your intentions on at this time. However, it is good to reflect on anything else that is coming up for you. It is generally best to make any intentions within the first 24 hours following a New Moon. The exact moment it will occur is 5:00am Universal Time on January 13th.
