8 Dangerous Myths About “Twin Flame” Relationships

Avatar

on

When you first hear about Twin Flames the idea is appealing – largely because it’s misunderstood at first.

Most people make the mistake of thinking that a Twin Flame means guaranteed love – a guaranteed relationship.

-->Listened to our latest podcast episode yet? Joe speaks with journalist Derrick Broze about the need for journalistic standards, Qanon, and agorism. Click here to listen!

The second reason that Twin Flames appeal is this desperate need we all have to be special – at least to one person… The One.

In this regard, ego has really screwed us over, as has society, with this idea of entitlement to love, a guarantee of love from Divine sources.

It really speaks to our laziness and entitlement as a society that we want an effortless and easy romantic relationship delivered to us, when we all know that relationships take work – a lot of time, dedication and work in fact.

You think I’m wrong? Then why are almost all Twin Flame teachings centered around the runner/chaser cycle?

Because it exists, that’s why.

In fact one Twin Flame running while the other chases is usually a NORM in Twin Flame relationships.

For most Twins, when they meet, it triggers untold chaos in one or both of their lives – usually partnered with a massive spiritual awakening.

This chaos, in fact, is exactly what triggers most Twins to seek a spiritual journey…. the emotional chaos and trauma becomes so great in certain instances, that they are forced to find relief, healing and help that truly speaks to the deepest parts of their soul.

So what other myths might be messing you up when it comes to understanding your Twin Flame?

1. You only have one Twin Flame
2. A Twin Flame is always a romantic relationship
3. Your Twin Flame is guaranteed to work and if it fails, it’s a False Twin
4. Twin Flame relationships will run smoothly from the moment you meet
5. You will be happy when you meet your Twin Flame and you will instantly recognize your Twin Flame
6. Your Twin Flame won’t be married or cheat you/cheat on you
7. All Twin Flame relationships follow the same pattern and trajectory
8. Sex and appearance are not important in romantic Twin Flames

Twin Flame Myth 1: You only have one Twin Flame

The idea that you only have one Twin Flame stems from three different concepts:

  • first, the need to be special again,
  • secondly, a misunderstanding about the Twin Flame mission, combined with a a lot of ego personalization,
  • and thirdly, misunderstanding about how souls are comprised.

Firstly, the need to be special.

Spirituality and many religions – and recently manifestation teachings like The Secret – have left us with a perception that every single one of us is special, and is entitled simply because we exist – because we were born.

But the truth that life throws this back in our faces every single day, tells us this isn’t the case. But we’re desperate to hold onto that hope, so we transfer the idea of being special onto specific life events – like meeting our romantic partner.

Of course there can only be one…. The One in fact.

But this isn’t logical, and the reason is free will.

Our Godlike natures and potential really boil down to one aspect – free will. We have the free will to choose our path and trajectory – and Source honors free will above everything else.

So the very idea that someone is DESTINED or predetermined to get involved with another specific person flies in the face of free will. Free will means you choose – a destined partner means you have no choice.

We always have choice.

But they want to give you the best chance of finding and experiencing the love you deserve, and so in order to do that, they send multiple Twin Flames. This way, if one dies in car accident, or misses the train and doesn’t meet you, or decides to a live a celibate life, there is a backup to take their place.

The reason this can happen is the third mentioned – how souls are comprised.

So your soul has an identity, and let’s say that identity’s name is Sue. Sue is a soul.

When Sue is ready for a life, a piece of her soul will be taken to create a new identity. So let’s say Sue is living four lifetimes at the same time – Mary, Jane, Sarah and Lee. So Sue leaves 20% of her soul energy behind, and takes 20% of her soul into each lifetime.

In order to employ free will though, they need to blank out our memories at birth.

Think about it…. if you knew you would meet the love of your life at 35, and you knew what they looked like and what your karma and soul history with them is, would you take the relationships that came before that seriously? Would you even have them at all, knowing that they were all doomed to fail?

And what if you knew that last lifetime you had been a violent and abusive partner, and this lifetime you’d agreed to enter into an abusive relationship as a victim… would you still enter into the relationship knowing it would mean years of abuse and torture?

Of course not!

Enter memory wiping at birth, and you believe you are making choices of your free will – which you really are. It’s blank slate and a chance to decide entirely based on where you are now.

So when they blank our memory we forget that we are actually Sue, and we start to believe that we are only Mary or only Jane.

However, at the point of death, Mary and Jane and Sarah and Lee will return and become a part of Sue again – but Sue will still be the main identity.

The confusion of being a blank slate at birth means that we grow up thinking that Mary is our only identity, and then we assume that Mary will be the primary identity when we get back. But Mary won’t – she’ll go back to being Sue.

So a Twin Flame can be on your primary soul aspect, in which case it will have the potential to be a lifetime relationship.

Or, the Twin Flame can exist purely on a single soul aspect, in which case it would only be active for as long as that soul aspect is dominant. If you’ve ever experienced one of those lessons where you feel like a whole new person and it takes you a few days to readjust and reorient to your body, then you have experienced a soul aspect awakening.

The reason this is all necessary is the second we mentioned – the Twin Flame mission.

We tend to personalize stuff like Twin Flames, thinking it is about our personal happiness, our personal glory and what God personally has planned for us, because we as individuals are so special.

However, the truth is that we are here as a collective group on a mission to change the world, and Twin Flames play an important energetic role in that.

In a nutshell it works like this: changing people one at a time would be too time consuming and too difficult – the ego barriers at this time are immense. So instead, we are clearing and changing the collective energetic field of the earth – known as the morphic or holographic field.

We do this first through empaths, who absorb negative energy and scrub it, simply removing it from the field altogether. Now however, we are left with an imbalance – a shortage of energy in the field.

Enter Twin Flames, who release the highest form of creation energy, known as zero point energy, when they reconcile dualities.

The reason this happens is because Twin Flames are a recursion of the original I AM separation of creation.

Each time a duality is reconciled therefore, it releases a burst of clean, pure energy into the field to replace what has been scrubbed and removed by the empaths.

From here, the Messiahs enter. Their job is receive new downloads of new layers of information, and broadcast those teachings to others, as well as anchor them energetically in the field.

It’s a team job, and there is no “I” in T-E-A-M.

Twin Flame Myth 2: A Twin Flame is always a romantic relationship

Another common misconception is that Twins are always romantic relationships. This is also a belief that leads to thinking there can only be one Twin Flame.

Remember, Twin Flames are about the mission, and we want to get this done as quickly as possible.

So, if we already have a whole bunch of Twin Flames on earth releasing zero point energy, then doesn’t it make sense that we would give them multiple other Twin Flame relationships in their lives to increase zero point energy production?

On average, about 40% of souls are Twin Flames.

However, at this time on Earth, as many as 70 – 80% of the souls on the planet are Twin Flames.

Some of these are parent/child bonds, some siblings, some friends, some lovers…. the roles don’t matter. It only matters that these relationships are seeing issues reconciled and releasing that zero point energy in the field.

And since they sent backups anyway, it makes sense to have those backups floating around in your life, nearby, in case they need to step in.

Twin Flame Myth 3: Your Twin Flame is guaranteed to work and if it fails, it’s a False Twin

Twin Flames are difficult relationships to navigate.

You already carry these extreme dualities – like one is a liar and the other totally truthful. For this mission however, they added some fuel to the fire and picked Twin Flames that have huge karmic loads to balance as well.

This achieves something amazing from an energetic point of view… it greatly magnifies each burst of zero point energy, giving us way more bang for our buck, and helping the shift progress faster.

However, this also means that the already difficult Twin Flame bond is now going to be even more difficult to navigate.

Which then leads to the next misconception…

Twin Flame Myth 4: Twin Flame relationships will run smoothly from the moment you meet

I reference back to the runner/chaser. There is a good reason this is the most commonly recognized pattern among Twin Flames – it’s COMMON.

More often than not in fact, Twin Flames will be total chaos from the moment you meet.

And if the relationship isn’t chaos, other areas of your life will start falling apart.

One very interesting pattern is the push-pull effect… as one of you comes right in an area, the other will get thrown off balance again.

So one of you is sick or miserable or having a hard time at work, and as soon as you come right, it seems that your partner has something that falls apart.

It can be very frustrating if you don’t balance it, because there always seems to be an imbalance and inequality in the relationship.

This is actually true, because it’s one of the ways that the Twin Flame bond forces you to work as a team – as a single united soul.

Twin Flame Myth 5: You will be happy when you meet your Twin Flame and you will instantly recognize your Twin Flame

I’ve met more Twin Flames where there was disinterest from one party at first, than I have Twin Flames where both instantly fell in love.

It’s almost like some Twin Flames are guaranteed to start with the runner/chaser cycle, with one the Twin Flames instantly falling in love and beginning a (sometimes VERY long) chase to win the other’s affection.

Interestingly, almost all these particular Twin Flames see a switch over in runner/chaser orientation when a commitment is finally made.

Once the runner has been caught and a relationship starts, often that runner becomes the chaser for the duration of the relationship, and in many cases is the heartbroken party at the end of it all.

Twin Flame Myth 6: Your Twin Flame won’t be married or cheat you/cheat on you

This particular misconception causes so much backlash when you talk about it, but it’s very common on this particular cycle.

And before we get into the whole ‘God would never send you anybody married debate,’ I would like to offer this story from the Bible.

So Abraham, the father of Israel, if you don’t know his story, was married to Sarai – later Sarah.

For many years she was barren and could not give him a son. Eventually, in order to ease his pain, Sarah offered him her Egyptian maidservant, Hagar, to mate with. Hagar bore a son for Abraham – his first son – Ishmael.

However, many years later, Sarah was blessed by the Lord and bore him a son, Isaac, who was his father’s favorite.

Isaac grew. The time came for his mother to stop breast-feeding him. On that day Abraham prepared a big celebration. But Sarah saw Ishmael making fun of Isaac. Ishmael was the son Hagar had by Abraham. Hagar was Sarah’s Egyptian slave. Sarah said to Abraham, “Get rid of that slave woman! Get rid of her son! That woman’s son will never have a share of the family’s property. All of it belongs to my son Isaac.” What Sarah said upset Abraham very much. After all, Ishmael was his son.

But God said to Abraham, “Do not be so upset about the boy and your slave Hagar. Listen to what Sarah tells you, because your family line will continue through Isaac. I will also make the son of your slave into a nation. I will do it because he is your child.” – Genesis 21: 8-13

So even God will play favorites and send a partner away.

We can’t always see the bigger picture or the reasons why though.

The reason it’s so common in this time though, has a lot more to do with our own entitlement and instant gratification.

Patience is not a common trait nowadays – not in our quick fix society of instant everything.

This impatience, combined with our desperate loneliness, a need for connection and love, and this idea that we are mature before our time, leads many of us into hasty relationships at an early age.

So the truth is that many of the Twin Flames that are meeting now actually married the wrong person 10 or 15 years ago, and now the universe is finally playing out the fate that you were too impatient to stick around and wait for.

In addition, a lot of people settled or compromised, or fell pregnant or felt ticking biological clocks… and they too got married for the wrong reasons.

It’s not pretty, but it also does fit with the need for massive zero point releases – because the leap to leave a marriage and commit to someone else is a huge thing to reconcile.

The bigger the reconciliation, the bigger the release of energy.

It’s messy, but it serves the purpose – and actually gets the job done a little more quickly than if we’d made it pretty.

And if you think that is hasn’t gotten ugly before… they nailed Jesus to a cross on that last go round. Just think about how gruesome and messy that scene is.

We sadly have to work within the confines of the energies and stories available in people’s lives and the morphic field.

If this story and energy is most prevalent, then this is the resource we will use to achieve our aims.

Twin Flame Myth 7: All Twin Flame relationships follow the same pattern and trajectory

Another big misconception we’ll discuss today is that all Twin Flames follow the same path and trajectory. This simply isn’t true.

The truth is there are actually 2 kinds of Twin Flames – and I don’t mean romantic and platonic, or even Twin Flames, False Twins and Twit Flames.

The 2 kinds of Twin Flames are Expressing Love Twin Flames, and then Creating Love Twin Flames.

Expressing Love Twin Flames are those relationships where it is all sunshine and roses (mostly anyway), and is smooth sailing in regards that the two parties want to be together, and move heaven and earth to make that happen.

The second kind of Twin Flame is a Creating Love Twin Flame, and as the name suggests, these Twins have to work to create the love or opportunity for love.

Whether it’s because one is running, or because of life circumstances, or because one is tied down by obligation, often work, family or marriage, these Twins have to work to traverse and cross huge boundaries to be able to share a life together. Many of theses bonds are also long distance.

In many cases, there is a love triangle where the choice is money/obligation or love.

If these two do manage to get it together, the relationship can also often be rocky when they are living together, and these bonds can be described as passionate and fiery. They can get very fiery in fact.

They’re also often very sexual, with high drama and high energy and tension, which makes them irresistible in many cases. This is especially true for healers and fixers and problem solvers, who prefer the thrill of fixing and solving to the boredom of everything going smoothly.

The many psychopath/narcissist and empath connections coming to light are creating love bonds.

Many of these relationships have already had years of back and forth running and chasing, and have now been rocked by all sorts of terrible betrayal. So there are already two major layers of trust and abandonment to overcome – the runner history and betrayal.

In addition, if these Twins had to choose to move forward, there would be a massive amount of work required to rebuild these relationships or reach a level of trust and connection that would make it worth pursuing again.

Many Twins are battling to walk away from these bonds though, as there does seem to be some importance to the history of the past five years.

There’s some relevance to the fact that these relationships viewed the spiritual transformation we’ve all been undergoing the past few years.

Somehow understanding who we were previously will make a difference later on; but I’m not entirely sure how yet?

Twin Flame Myth 8: Sex and appearance are not important in romantic Twin Flames

This last one really confuses me, and I think it’s about the prudishness of society, combined with spiritual bypassing.

Whatever the reason though, the truth is that almost every romantic relationship has a sexual component – it is a natural expression of the urge to oneness – the urge to move closer to God.

We all understand that our Twin Flames are a spiritual experience, and we know that they trigger a spiritual awakening, which is also about moving closer to God.

These bonds have come into our lives to help us express that need to be close, enjoy shared experience, and be one with the person.

Sex is the most natural expression of this – and most importantly, it is the mechanism of tantric union.

Sexual experience within a Twin Flame romantic bond is meant to help you greatly accelerate both of your trajectory towards Source.

Whether or not you are a Twin Flame, you need to feel, and find your partner, sexy, in order to keep that sexual connection going.

So many Twin Flames are falling apart and having their partners cheat because they are not fulfilling the sexual needs of their partner.

The deal with monogamy is that when you tell the person to be faithful, it is not just for your fidelity in return: the underlying agreement is that you will meet the person’s sexual needs, and be all that they desire, so that they can keep their promise to remain faithful to you.

It doesn’t matter how good you are as friends and companions and parents – living a half life with a romantic Twin Flame you are not sexually engaged with is only living at 70%.

The sex is amazing in Twin Flame bonds for a reason…. the sex contributes to the overall energetic work we are doing. Tantric union is the mechanism of unity.

Every mechanism that we are using to navigate and do the work we are doing is a natural mechanism or expression that occurs normally in our daily lives.

This is the backup mechanism from the universe, and reason they do it like this is so that they can be sure it will still happen, or start to happen, even without conscious interference from lightworkers in the field.

So basically, by building the mechanisms into our normal day to day life expression, they could be sure the shift would start – even if none us had woken up already.

Another key point to note about appearance is that we come programmed with the knowledge of what our ideal Twin will look like.

First impressions count, and you don’t want to miss the mark because you haven’t kept up your side of what they expect you too look like…especially if you only have one or two chances at meeting your Flame.

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.

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.
