Are Angels Watching Our World? A Powerful Look Inside The Claims

Have you ever wondered if angels really watch over the world? If so, what does this actually mean and what is the true nature of their assistance? It has been said throughout history that non-physical beings act as guides and provide assistance in times of great need. The interpretations of this have varied depending on the source, whether it be from religious scriptures to new age spiritual texts. There are powerful implications to be understood here, so demystifying this subject is a worthy pursuit. I would like to share with you a unique and profound message that may shed some more light and clarity on this topic, for I believe this understanding to be of vital importance at this time. It can really help us to understand the bigger picture in life, where the world is going, what is at stake, and how we fit into the grander scheme of things.

For the past 31 years, a man named Marshall Vian Summers has been receiving communications from the divine in a series of mysterious angelic encounters that started in the deserts of the American Southwest. Summers is a humble and sincere man and his story is fascinating to read. These revelations have grown vaster and vaster in scope and now amount to more than 9000 pages in total. They are profound, challenging, and direct, written in clear English that can be understood by all. These messages are now known as a New Message from God and have been translated into more than 19 languages and are being studied in more than 87 countries around the world. I believe they are very important to consider at this time. They address the most pressing issues that humanity is facing now and in the future: facing the impending Great Waves of change and addressing our open emergence into a competitive universe teeming with intelligent life.

“Spirituality is fundamentally a quest for freedom—freedom from certain things and freedom for certain things. Seen in this way, the picture becomes more complete. For you have a greater destiny in the world, a greater purpose for being here, a purpose that you are not living now, despite your definitions and proclamations. It is to free you from the life that you are living now to prepare you for a greater life in service to the world that represents the core and essence of all spiritual development.” — New Message Wiki, Quotes about Freedom

These Messages have given me the clarity and understanding of the bigger picture that I have been searching for for many years. The practices known as the Steps to Knowledge offer a powerful preparation to cultivate our deeper spiritual mind and potential in an authentic manner. Developing qualities like stillness, discernment, objectivity, compassion, and strength go a long way towards being effective in this world. I pray that you will see the importance and power of the following message and give it due consideration in relation to your life and your greater purpose. I warn you that the Messages may challenge and overwhelm you at first, as they did for me, but I urge you to press onwards and give them a chance. For there is real potency and potential here, along with the promise to transform your life in a genuine way that allows you to truly be of service and fulfill your mission here on Earth. Thank you for letting me share. May the power and presence of Knowledge within you be your guide during the times ahead.

The Assembly

As revealed to God’s Messenger
Marshall Vian Summers

There is a great Assembly, the Angelic Presence that watches over this world, and has watched over this world for a very long time. How different this is, however, from people’s notions and beliefs, the way that such great Beings have been portrayed in the past in your books on religion and in the testimony of certain people.

God is not managing the world. God is not running the climate. God is not moving the blood through your veins or pouring the waters over the cliffs or germinating the seeds in the ground—for that was all set into motion at the beginning of time.

But God has assigned a Presence to watch over the world through all of its chaotic and tragic encounters and episodes in history—watching for those individuals who show greater promise; bringing things into the world at key turning points in humanity’s evolution and sending one of their own into the world to bring a new teaching and a new understanding to change the awareness of humanity and to alter, if possible, the course of humanity in a positive way.

Those who you honor as the great Messengers, the great Saints, the great Teachers—such as the Jesus, the Buddha and the Mohammad—come from this Assembly, you see. But when they are in the world, they are human beings. What distinguishes them is that they are here on a greater mission with a greater set of responsibilities and a greater accountability to those who sent them. Their lives are trials. Their lives are demanding. It is not a journey for the faint of heart or for those seeking pleasure and repose here on Earth.

The Assembly watches over the world—listening, waiting for those requests that are truly authentic and represent an honest appeal, particularly if they mark a turning point in a person’s life, particularly if they show a greater demonstration of a desire for contact—not borne of ambition, not borne of foolishness or experimentation. It is the signal that someone is ready to begin to awaken. Only Heaven knows what this signal is, what it sounds like, what it means and how it should be regarded.

For you here on Earth, the Assembly is like Heaven—a bridge between this world and your Ancient Home, from which you have come and to which you will return eventually. Everyone in the world, everyone in the universe living in separation in the physical reality, will return to their Ancient Home eventually. But while they are here, they are prisoners to their own intentions. They are prisoners to their cultures and their nations, in a universe where freedom is so very rare. Yet each has been sent here for a greater purpose, a potential, a seed of wisdom, a possibility that, given the right circumstances and given their own honesty and awareness, a greater life can be initiated.

Every world where sentient beings have evolved or have migrated and colonized in the universe, there will be an Assembly there—a great Assembly or a small Assembly, depending on the number of individuals and the nature and conditions of that culture and nation in the universe.

It is a Plan on a scale you cannot even imagine. Your religions cannot account for it. Your theology is far too limited in scope to encompass something of this magnitude. Try as you may to interpret the signs and the symbols of life on Earth, you cannot interpret this. Your intellect was not created to interpret something on this scale.

But within you is the power of Knowledge that God has placed there, a deeper intelligence, a deeper mind. It is this mind that the Assembly is waiting for. For if this deeper mind within you can emerge within the context of your life and circumstances and be accepted and followed and received, you begin a new journey in life. Only in this regard can it be said that you would be born again in the world. Only in this regard would that be true, meaningful and efficacious. Members of the Assembly will attend to certain individuals who are making a greater contribution to the world, but only if the deeper Knowledge within those individuals is sending the message—the message the Assembly is waiting for and looking for among those who live in separation.

God allows you to be in separation. God allows you to suffer. God allows you to make mistakes because that is why you have chosen separation—to have this freedom. But since there is no real alternative to Creation, your existence here is only partially real. It is still connected to Creation, but is a changing, evolving environment—an environment where your life is temporary and greatly challenged and greatly endangered by many things, where error and failure will be the consequence of living without this Knowledge to guide you.

God allows this to happen because you were made to be free. You are even free to try to not be who you really are. You are even that free. But you can never succeed in separation because Knowledge lives within you. It is the part of you that has never left God and still responds to the power and presence of the Lord of Creation and of Creation itself.

Think of your religious teachings in the world—the stories and the vast array of ideas associated with these and consider them in light of what We are saying to you here today. For We are giving you the big picture of your life. See the contrast and you will begin to see that you must embark on a new journey. Your old ideas of religion and spirituality can only serve you to a certain degree. Beyond that, they must be set aside, for only God knows the way to return. Only God knows the meaning of your true existence and the specific purpose that has brought you into the world at this time under these circumstances.

The intellect must bow down eventually. It can only follow when attending a greater reality. This requires humility. This requires surrendering, over time, to the power and the presence that lives within you, that can only respond to your Source.

The Assembly allows everything to happen on Earth. Unless their presence is required and requested with the greatest sincerity, they will not interfere. Only at a great turning point when a New Message is meant to be given to the world, will they provide humanity a new understanding and a greater awareness. This will occur in response to great and potentially devastating change in the world. That is why the great Revelations are only given at certain critical turning points in the evolution of human civilization. They cannot be fabricated. They cannot be invented. They cannot even be imagined, though many people have tried, of course.

It is upon these that the great traditions have been built. But it is also upon these that the great traditions have not been able to follow the spirit of the Revelation that initiated their existence in the beginning. God knows that without Knowledge, people would be in error regarding these things and would make many mistakes along the way. It is the condition of living in separation.

Once you begin to discover the power and presence of Knowledge within yourself, you begin to end the separation within yourself—between your worldly mind and idea of yourself and the greater intelligence that lives within you, an intelligence you had before you came into the world and which you will rediscover once you leave.

This requires a great resonance with life and not merely a complex theology or philosophy. The Angelic Assembly does not respond to those things. But at a great turning point, such as is occurring in the world today, one of their own will come into the world. One of their own will be sent to face the tribulation of being the Messenger—the great difficulty, the great mystery, the great uncertainty, the great Presence that will abide with them as they go through the process of becoming an adult human being, with yet little awareness of their greater destiny and purpose until their calling has been initiated.

No one understands the life of the Messenger, but everyone can receive the gifts of the Messenger, which are gifts that are greater than any person could ever give to the world—gifts far more long lasting, pervasive, powerful and inspiring than any person could ever create or invent. People may have compelling ideas, but nothing that can transform the life of a person in the most natural and beautiful way. That must come from Heaven. It must come through the Assembly that interprets the will of God. For God of the universe is far too great to be preoccupied with this world—the God of countless galaxies, dimensions and Creation beyond the physical manifestation, which is even greater, so great that there is no possibility that you could comprehend its scope and its great inclusion in life.

The Lord of a billion, billion, billion races and more is certainly beyond any theological principle that has ever been created in this world. But it is part of God’s New Revelation, you see, because humanity is emerging into a Greater Community of life in the universe and now must begin to think of God in a greater panorama. For to understand what God is doing in this world, you must understand what God is doing in the universe. For the first time, the Revelation concerning this is being given to a humanity that stands at the threshold of space, to a humanity that stands at the threshold of destroying the environment of the world and driving itself into ruin and catastrophe. It is the greatest threshold humanity has ever faced and the most consequential.

Everything will change and is changing even at this moment. Because of this great turning point, God has sent through the Angelic Presence and Assembly a New Revelation for the world—a Revelation about life in the universe and the work of God everywhere, not based upon a tribe or a region or upon a natural phenomenon or upon the limited history of a group or a nation, but upon the reality of life everywhere.

This greater panorama gives you the greatest opportunity to recognize the power and the presence that lives within you and encourages you to use your intellect to support this realization, for this is what it was created to do, and this is its highest service to you.

You will not know the names of those in the Assembly though they might provide a name at some point for some person to help them to respond. Their names are meaningless, for they are both individuals and they are one—a phenomenon you cannot comprehend with the intellect, which can only think of things of this world.

At the time of great Revelation, the Assembly speaks as one Voice. It speaks through one of its members, but they are all speaking at once, a phenomenon that you cannot really consider. It is too marvelous. It is too phenomenal. It speaks beyond your notions of reality entirely. You can only imagine individuals in the universe, but the Assembly is one and many and one, because they are so close to Heaven, you see, where the many are one, and the one are many.

Your focus in life is not to become enamored with the Assembly or to concentrate on the Assembly, for their purpose is to engage you with the reclamation of Knowledge that lives within you. For you must be the one who chooses. You must be the one who faces the consequences, the difficulties and the blessings of your decisions. You are the one who must choose to receive or to decline the great offering. You are the one who must be responsible for everything that you do. So do not go around telling people that God is guiding you to do this or that, for that is irresponsible. You must say, “I am doing this because I feel it is the thing that must be done.” Claim no other authority, for you do not know for sure.

You cannot know the Assembly or the power of the presence that lives within you unless Knowledge has been activated within you and is beginning to emerge powerfully in your life. Do not create a romance about your angelic experience, whatever it may be, whether it be real or fabricated because it is all about the emergence of Knowledge within you, you see. The Assembly is only concerned with this, for until this happens, you are not reliable. You are not responsible. You are not courageous. You are not authentic. You are still subject to the persuasions of the world and to your own fears and preferences. You are too weak.

That is why you must be elevated within yourself through a process of great transformation that can only be initiated by the Assembly. You cannot initiate yourself. You can meditate for twenty years and not know of the power and the presence of Knowledge. It is your prayer given now with the greatest strength, urgency and authenticity that calls the Assembly to you. You pray not for advantages or merely protection from harm. You pray to be redeemed, not knowing what this means, not trying to understand the redemption, not thinking you know how to purify yourself. Only the Assembly knows this. It is a marvelous thing, you see. It is the greatest miracle of all. It is the miracle that creates every other miracle.

God has now sent a New Message into the world to prepare humanity to face a new world experience and environment and to meet the great challenge of preserving and uniting human civilization. God has sent the great Revelation into the world to prepare humanity for its encounter with life in the universe—the greatest event in human history and the one that poses the greatest challenges, difficulties and opportunities for the human family.

A Messenger is in the world. He has been in preparation for a very long time to receive the Revelation, for it is the largest Revelation that has ever been given to humanity—given now to an educated world, a literate world, a world of global communication, a world of global awareness, to a certain degree. It is the first time in history that a Message has been given to the whole world all at once, for it must reach the world in a short period of time to prepare humanity for the great change that is coming to the world and for the meaning of its encounter with intelligent life in the universe, which is occurring in the world already.

None of God’s previous Revelations can prepare you for these things, for that was not their purpose or their design. They were given to build human awareness, human civilization and human conscience and the ethics that could possibly guide humanity to a greater unity and a greater power in the world. Human civilization has been created and though it is very imperfect, full of corruption, division and error, it nonetheless has great promise. If you knew the conditions of life in the universe around you, you would see this great promise. But you cannot see this yet. You do not have this vantage point. But the Assembly sees this, of course, and that is why great emphasis is being given to this world, to prepare for this great threshold. So much is being given now, through the process of Revelation.

The Messenger faces great difficulties, the same difficulties all the previous Messengers faced—disbelief, antagonism, rejection and ridicule. People cannot see that the greatest event in the world is occurring in their midst. They think it is a violation of their ideas or a challenge to their beliefs. They think it will undermine their wealth, their power and their prestige in the world when in fact it offers the greatest promise of redemption they could ever receive and the greatest preparation for a future that will be unlike the past in so many ways.

The Assembly watches and guides the Messenger, for his importance in the world cannot be underestimated. His importance in the world cannot be overestimated. The Assembly will speak through him to bring the Revelation into the world. They will speak as one because the Message is everything. If this can be recognized by enough people, heeded and followed by enough people, humanity will have the power to turn away from disintegration and endless conflict and war to build a new foundation for the future.

The Revelation has given the vision for this greater world for humanity, but it will be a very different world. It will require great power, courage and honesty to create it and to sustain it in a universe where there are powerful forces and where freedom is rare. Only God knows how this can be done. Only the Assembly understands these things.

Your task now is to learn to receive and to take the Steps to Knowledge so that you may find your true foundation in life, to challenge your ideas, to resolve dilemmas from the past, to forgive yourself and others and to look upon the world without rejection and condemnation, for it is this world that will call forth from you, in time, your greater gifts and your greater role.

There is so much to unlearn here, so much to reconsider. You have to be humble enough to do this. If you think you know the truth, if you think you know God’s will, if you think you know what the universe is, your chances of discovering the truth will be very small.

The Assembly watches over the world. Call to the Assembly—not casually, for they will not hear you. Not to fulfill your ambitions, your dreams or your fantasies, for they will not hear you. You must pray with your heart and your soul. Only then can your voice reach them, for they only know what is true, honest and pure. They cannot be manipulated. They cannot be corrupted. They cannot be influenced. You cannot make a deal with them. You must have the strength to receive their counsel in time and carry it forth without compromise and without corruption. That is how strong you will have to be, to be part of a greater force for good in the world.

People will think, “Oh, this is too much for me to consider. The challenge is too great!” But We say no. It is appropriate for who you are and why you are in the world and who sent you here. You think of yourself in such a demeaning way. You have degraded to a pathetic state when you think like this. You do not know your strength, your power or your purpose, which only Knowledge within you can provide.

The Assembly watches and waits for those who can respond to the Message that God is sending into the world at this moment, for the Messenger is now coming forth to speak, to proclaim and to teach the Revelation. He has been withheld for a long time until the Message was complete. Now it is complete, and the world is in great need of it, greater than you can realize at this moment.

The Messenger represents the Assembly though he is a human being and though he is imperfect, for all human beings are imperfect. He has made mistakes, but all the great Messengers have made mistakes. It is the power of Heaven within him that is his strength, that is his banner, that is his shield. You can destroy his body, but you cannot destroy his Message. And you cannot destroy what he is bringing into the world and the power and the presence that has sent him here, the power and the presence that waits for you to respond. For the gift is now before you, and Heaven watches and waits to see who can receive, who can recognize, who can take the Steps to Knowledge and receive the gift of a greater life in a world that grows darker and more uncertain with each passing day.

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.

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.
