New Moon In Sagittarius: Adjustments & Exploration

Published

on

We are having a New Moon in Sagittarius on November 26th in most parts of the world and on the early hours of the 27th in the time zones furthest East. This is initiating a new 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 coming two weeks. This cycle will include a Full Moon in Gemini on December 11th/12th.

This New Moon is a month away from the first of two Winter Eclipses, and therefore the effects of them may already begin to play out for some people. Eclipses facilitate changes and evolutionary developments in specific areas of our lives depending on how they are configured with your personal astrology chart. However, they  can also play out in the 3-6 months following and are not always noticeable around the time they are occurring. I will be writing separate articles on these eclipses, you can join my mailing list here to be notified when they are published.

Mercury also ended its retrograde on November 20th/21st and will be in its post-shadow period until December 7th/8th while still in Scorpio. This is a period in which we may progress forward and/or have more clarity in regards to certain themes, issues, insights, or developments that have come up during the retrograde.

New Moon In Sagittarius Quincunx Uranus, Trine Chiron

Sagittarius season began on November 22nd/23rd, however, this New Moon activates its themes even more so and imprints it into the Lunar cycle. This period is good for working with and co-creating with its energies and themes.

Sagittarius is about exploration, experience, learning, teaching, travel, foreign lands, philosophies, religion, beliefs, morals, righteousness,  idealism, luck, and optimism. It is also associated with things like marketing, media, and sales. As a fire sign it is passionate and instinctual. Negatively, Sagittarius energy can be excessive, blunt, egotistical, argumentative, opinionated, preachy, unrealistic, disregarding of consequences, and have a ‘know-it-all’ complex.

This New Moon is in a quincunx with Uranus which is separating from an opposition with Mars. This can reflect disruptions, instability, changes, shake ups, accidents, separations, rebellion, surprises, or losses that can be an annoyance and may require adjustments. This energy is strongest on the day of, and days leading up to, the New Moon.

This Lunation is also in a trine with Chiron which is slowing down to end its retrograde during the upcoming Full Moon phase. This month can be great for developments around healing, self-awareness, spiritual/holistic understandings, or the pursuit of wholeness and integration.

We can more easily make progress in addressing our wounds and shortcomings to help us unlock more of our positive potential. Chiron is also supportive for doing things in an unorthodox way and bringing things together that are usually separate from each other.

Jupiter Finishing It’s Run In Sagittarius Before Entering Capricorn

The ruler of this New Moon, Jupiter, is at the end of its own sign Sagittarius which really strengthens and amplifies the Sagittarian qualities mentioned above as well as overlapping Jupiter themes. It is near the Center of the Galaxy which is a highly significant part of the sky.

The Galactic Center is associated with aspirations, divine inspiration, higher consciousness, evolution, and spirituality. However, its energies can also sometimes trigger pressure, crisis, and challenging situations to help facilitate a needed change. It may be connected to beliefs or higher perspectives.

Jupiter then enters Capricorn on December 2nd/3rd where it will stay until mid December 2020.  Traditionally, it is considered to be challenged in Capricorn as it doesn’t express itself in the way that it likes to. Jupiter is naturally boundless and idealistic while Capricorn is a Saturn ruled Earth sign oriented towards achievement through hard work and discipline within the constructs, limitations, and realities of the physical world.

However, there are still  benefits to Jupiter in Capricorn. In this sign, it can reflect expansive energy towards goals, ambitions, structures, duties, and traditions. It can be good for learning things to help us with achieving, entrepreneurship, pursuing mastery, managing aspects of our lives, or being more productive.

Jupiter will also be moving towards the South Node which will be exact in January. This can also reflect some sort of endings in connection to how Jupiter and Capricorn is expressed in a specific area of our lives. I will be covering this in my upcoming Solar Eclipse in Capricorn article, join my mailing list here to ensure that you receive it.

Neptune Going Direct, In A Trine With Mercury

At the time of this New Moon, Neptune in Pisces is transitioning out of its retrograde and starts to slowly progress forward in the following days.  I generally don’t put much emphasis on the actual retrograde periods of the ‘outer planets’ in my articles, however, in the weeks and days near the transition the general energies of that planet can become more noticeable.

It is also possible that certain things that occur at this time may be connected to something that transpired in the second half of June when the retrograde began. Neptune themes that may be highlighted could have something to do with creativity, imagination, visual arts, film/photography, fantasy, dreams, spirituality, divinity, soul mates, compassion, as well as practices and substances that induce psychedelic experiences.

Neptune is also associated with escapism, drugs, alcohol, and behavior that is flaky, delusional and deceptive. Some people may start to realize (or began to realize in June) that they were not seeing a situation clearly or perhaps projecting illusions onto something going on in their life.

With Mercury now moving direct while in a trine with Neptune, we may have a better perception around a situation. This configuration can also reflect heightened intuition, inspiration, or thinking and communicating in a way that is spiritual, creative, or compassionate. This is strongest on November 27th and 28th.

Venus Square Chiron, Trine Uranus, and Conjunct South Node While Sextile Mars

Venus in Capricorn is in a square with Chiron which is strongest on the 26th and 27th but can play out through the Lunar Cycle. This can trigger wounds, blockages, or perceived inadequacies pertaining to values, relationships, women, feminine energy, appearance, pleasures, or money. However, this can also be an opportunity to bring awareness or potential healing and growth to these areas.

Venus than moves towards a trine with Uranus which is exact on November 28th. This can be stimulating when it comes to our relations. There can be something new, unusual, exciting, insightful, or positively surprising which can play out socially, romantically, financially, creatively, or in regards to fun activities. This can also be a good time for aesthetic developments such as changing the appearance of something or even obtaining things like clothing or other material items.

Venus will then align with the South Node while in a sextile with Mars in Scorpio from December 2nd-3rd.  This can be a good time for activities with others, creative pursuits, or romance. However, there may be something pertaining to old behaviors or aspects of love, friendships, values, or pleasures that are no longer serving us and getting in the way of our growth. It’s possible that what transpires at this time can bring some sort of realization to something that we need to let go of. Mercury will also be in a sextile with Pluto at the same time which can help us with a depth of understanding.

Making Intentions And Things To Consider

What has come up for you during the previous Mercury Retrograde (from Oct 31st – Nov 20th) and in this last week following it? How should you proceed based on realizations or developments that have transpired? Is there anything coming up now to help you grow spiritually? Are there new perspectives coming into your life that may influence your beliefs and awareness? Is there anything that you feel like you need to learn? How are your wounds or blockages affecting your relationships and what can you do to help improve the situation?

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 of it will be occurring at 3:06pm Universal Time on November 26th.  You can click here to see what that is in your time zone.

An Animation That Beautifully Explores ‘The War On Consciousness’

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Many feel there is a great effort to suppress human consciousness. Not just our will, but the exploration of who we truly are. This shows up in many ways, originating top-down from corporations to governments etc.

  • Reflect On:

    There is no actual 'war.' This is a state of perception. If we see it as war, we create fighting. Instead, let's simply evolve and expand our consciousness knowing we're more powerful than those who suppress. Spreading knowledge and living it is key.

The animation below is great and Graham Hancock’s message in it is also powerful, but I want to address something important quickly before we start, as what I’m about to say is a crucial part of the message we have been working so hard to convey here at CE since inception.

I get that ‘the war on consciousness’ is a figure of speech in the case of this talk, but with 10 years working in this field of journalism and consciousness, I do see many of us getting caught up in the idea that we have to fight and that there is a war to be won.

I see this as a state of consciousness that will keep us locked in a state of disconnection and loss of power.

Moving Beyond A Key Myth

One of the biggest myths that gets spread around this movement is that we must get angry to change the world. The truth is, some of us might get angry at first, and that’s totally fine! But we have to shift beyond the consciousness of being angry about our world before we can change it in any way that will TRULY cause change.

When we change things out of anger, spite, judgement or anxiety, we don’t create systems from the heart, this we will need to break them down again in a very short time. Not because we have evolved beyond them again, but because they are systems created from a polarized state of being. THIS is what we’re moving beyond in this shift.

Change Starts Within.

This is neutrality in action. This is how we evolve beyond what we see in our world.

What does it mean to evolve beyond it? It’s to be in a state of being and emotion where these events can no longer happen. When you assume you must fight for something, you are saying that there needs to be a fight, thus you are met with a fight. That emotion and idea comes from a disconnected state of consciousness where we can still create that experience.

If we as individuals evolve beyond the need for the fight, it would mean to be in a state of being where we do not need to see the fight. That comes from changing our view and perception of something.

Being present, being here now, and not identifying so strongly with the body, our identity, culture, skin color, struggle etc is powerful. We instead see and live in a state of being where we practice the knowing of our pure potential, living through the heart, collaborative oneness and true heart guidance.

Thus, to evolve beyond it is to change your state of being so that this type of reality no longer exists as it can’t be created from that new state of being. When we achieve this collectively, it no longer exists in our world.

Now that I got that out of the way, one last note is, Graham Hancock will speak of psychedelics in his talk. They have become incredibly trendy today, and while they can help people, research is suggesting this happens when done in specific ways and with specific intentions. Many are starting to put all their power into these plants as if it will do the work for them. They don’t, and won’t.

You can also achieve these exact same insights without the use of these plants. It’s important we maintain a grounded and realistic approach to these plants so they can be used with respect and for their intended purpose. We explore the purpose of psychedelics deeply in an episode of The Collective Evolution Podcast here.

 The ‘War’ On Consciousness

This animation was created by the talented team over at After Skool. You can check out their channel here.

Transcript

What is death? Our materialist science reduces everything to matter, materialist science in the West says that we are just meat, we’re just our bodies. So when the brain is dead, that’s the end of consciousness, there is no life after death, there is no soul; we just rot and are gone. Actually, many honest scientists should admit that consciousness is the greatest mystery of science and that we don’t know exactly how it works.

The brain is involved in it some way but we’re not sure how. It could be that the brain generates consciousness the way a generator makes electricity, if you hold to that paradigm, then, of course, you can’t believe in life after death, when the generator’s broken, consciousness is gone. But it’s equally possible that the relationship — and nothing in neuroscience rules it out – that the relationship is more like the relationship of the TV signal to the TV set, and in that case, when the TV set is broken, of course the TV signal continues. And this is the paradigm of all spiritual traditions, that we are immortal souls temporarily incarnated in these physical forms.

If we want to understand consciousness, the last people we should ask are materialist scientists. Instead, we should look at ancient cultures, like the Egyptians, who highly valued dream states. Many ancient cultures around the world used hallucinogenic plants to understand consciousness and expand their minds.

However, in today’s society, visionary plants are highly illegal because they promote a state of consciousness that does not agree with the agenda of profit. Substances, like coffee, alcohol, sugar and pharmaceuticals, are forced upon the population, but possession of even small quantities of cannabis, Ayahuasca or psilocybin will land you in jail. If we do not recognize the right of adult sovereignty over consciousness, then we can NOT claim to be free.

Look at what our moderns state of consciousness has done. We have destroyed the natural gifts of the earth in pursuit of short-term, selfish gain. We must reconnect with spirit immediately or else we will encounter disaster. Visionary plants could be the remedy for our current sickness.

Smiling At Cashiers & Other Sparks Of Divinity

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    It is possible to have profound experiences in some of the most mundane encounters with others.

  • Reflect On:

    How would your life change if every interaction you had with other people was infused with the conviction that we are all one?

It’s one of the things I like to do, as the receipt is being put in my hand: offer a grateful ‘thank-you,’ and look in the cashier’s eyes for an extra split-second and smile, and see if they are ready to share a spark of divinity that crosses between our souls.

Sometimes they are, as happened to me recently at a ‘No Frills’ express lane. I looked at the girl as she handed me the bill, she looked at me, and then came the recognition in her eyes, in her smile, whether conscious or not, that we are connected, that we see each other, that we are grateful to be alive to have this kind of experience. Magic.

Sometimes the cashier is not ready, and my smile is met with a furtive glance, back to the next matter at hand, the next customer in line. No matter. No effort to connect is wasted. Some of the energy still gets through and gives the person a lift.

Sometimes it is me who is not ready, and the smile from the cashier awakens me into appreciation. Imagine, they are the ones working a long, tiring, repetitive job and they take a moment to wake ME up!

When the cashier is efficient, friendly, light, then my appreciation for what they are doing pours out into that moment. When the cashier is slow, tired, fed-up, it is not so easy for me. But at times, I am prepared to take the opportunity to help reconnect that person to the vitality of life. Have you ever eased a busy, ragged, overwhelmed cashier into a moment of divinity with a warm smile of empathy? Have you ever made a frowning, wrinkled face light up? Try it! This may be the best experience of them all.

Learned Practice

I’m just grateful to have found this practice. It did not come naturally to me. I was always shy, cautious, pensive, ‘in my head’. It was through years of watching a few trusted friends, seeing how they interacted easily and openly with strangers, that I started to try to adopt a new approach.

I had long been a student of philosophy and spirituality. But if the study of esoteric matters remains on the pages, in the words, in the concepts, simply a tool of the intellect to make one feel smart, evolved, superior, then the whole point is missed, not only about spiritual knowledge but about life itself.

At first, the practice for me was about trying to feel connected myself; it served to make me feel more comfortable in the world, especially around other people. As I continued to practice, and expand that practice into other situations, not just with strangers but with friends, loved ones, enemies, it really broadened and deepened my understanding of spiritual principles which I had previously fancied myself an expert in. Perhaps one of the most important realizations I’ve had through all this is that true knowledge is humbling. If one’s knowledge base serves to inflate one’s sense of self-importance in the world in comparison to other people, then it is not true knowledge.

The Unbearable Lightness Of Being

Our lives on this planet are fraught with difficult emotions: fear, sadness, anxiety, and many others. One of the great healing salves is to endeavor to demonstrate to others the knowledge that we are all one. Most likely, you have had this kind of experience in some situations in your life, like smiling at a cashier or hugging a loved one. The key to a great life is to work to expand this experience into all our interactions with people, to overcome the barriers of separation, not only in others but especially the ones within ourselves.

This is the task of the bringers of light. And whether we are conscious of it or not, we are all here to bring our light upon the darkness, and collectively transform our world into our shared vision of harmony.

Expanding Reality Through Consciousness: A Fascinating Interview With A Neurosurgeon

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Joe recently sat down with Dr. Mario Beauregard for an in-depth discussion into consciousness, current events and how we can begin responding to the emerging desire for change.

  • Reflect On:

    What direction is our global society moving towards with regards to understanding the true nature of consciousness? Is a new consciousness emerging within us that no longer resonates with the 'old world?'

Mario Beauregard, PhD., is a neuroscientist currently affiliated with the Department of Psychology, University of Arizona. He has received a bachelor degree in psychology and a doctorate degree in neuroscience from the University of Montreal. He has also underwent postdoctoral fellowships at the University of Texas Medical School (Houston) and the Montreal Neurological Institute (MNI), McGill University.

Dr. Beauregard is the author of more than 100 publications (articles, essays, book chapters) in neuroscience, psychology, and psychiatry. He was the first neuroscientist to use neuroimaging to investigate the neural underpinnings of voluntary control in relation to emotion. Because of his research into the neuroscience of consciousness, he was selected (2000) by the World Media Net to be one of the “One Hundred Pioneers of the 21st Century.”

In the episode below, Collective Evolution founder Joe Martino and Dr. Beauregard sit down to discuss what transhumanism, AI, near death experiences and our current events have in common, which is consciousness. They all stem from what level of consciousness we are creating these things out of. Joe explores this topic with Dr. Beauregard in a recent episode of The Collective Evolution Show on CETV.

CETV is a platform we created to combat the tremendous amount of censorship and demonetization we have experienced and are currently experiencing. It’s our own platform, away from social media platforms like Facebook and it’s how we are able to continue doing what we do and keep Collective Evolution alive.
