When The ‘Mass Arrests’ Don’t Happen, Will We Realize We Can’t Wait For A Saviour?

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Many are claiming that under the guise of the coronavirus lockdown, an alliance is preparing to arrest deep state players and that we will see 3 - 10 days of darkness. This narrative does not seem to be truly empowering humanity.

  • Reflect On:

    Do you truly resonate with these predictions? Is this what will bring about a world where we thrive? Or is this perhaps still focused on blaming others without looking at the role wee play in why our world is the way it is?

A few weeks ago, a great deal of strong and widely shared predictions began to once again surface that the mass arrest of the Deep State and it’s players is going to occur under the guise of this coronavirus lockdown. Specifically, people claim we are going to see full internet outages for 3 – 10 days, where the mass arrest of these high profile figures will be carried out by the US military in April 2020. Immediately when I heard these predictions once again, I felt within myself that this is the moment, this is when the focus on these decade long predictions may finally come to an end and we can begin doing the ‘real work.’ I felt this because I truly don’t feel this is going to occur.

Now I want to be clear, it’s not that I feel no big name political official will be arrested from now until the end of time or anything of that nature, I simply just do not feel that this idea that the deep state will be defeated and a solar flash will evolve everyone’s consciousness is what is going to move humanity forward to a world where we truly thrive. To me, this is a narrative built out of the idea that we can’t possibly do this ourselves, so someone or something has to do it for us. The key missing ingredient here is: there is no learned self-empowerment.

-->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!

As a quick note for those who are curious, in the context of this piece and what my research has led me to over the years is that the deep state or shadow government is essentially groups of unelected individuals who own and control politicians and governments. It’s tough to express how entirely these groups function and who exactly makes them up, which is a much deeper conversation, but the sense that there are forces behind government that influence government should is the key aspect to keep in mind. More on that here.

For the last 3 years, perhaps millions have hung on to the words of Q, an alleged insider connected to Trump and an alliance of ‘good guys’ that provides intel drops on 4chan and 8chan boards. Qanons work to decipher these drops and link them to current events to explore what they really mean and what might be happening next in the ‘battle against the deep state.’ The interesting part is, most of what Q posts about are in fact real events, and are in fact helping people awaken to the reality of the deep state. The challenge is, many analysts are creating narratives that may not be accurate, yet they think they are, and the drops of information could easily be posted by anyone who is already well researched into alternative ideas about how the world functions.

Does that make this false? Shouldn’t pay attention? No, the idea of exploring this and asking questions is fine, but attaching to it and making assertions is where the issue arises. Still, for many, there is an addictive-like quality to the Q drops as the narrative has presented the age old idea that a saviour figure is coming to save America, and then the world, and these people have it all taken care of. Now, it’s fair to say Q is looking to unite people, encouraging them to question and do their research, but the ambiguity of the drops can return almost any narrative you like if you really want to. Thus, many people, not all, sit back, fit the drops into their existing narrative, grab their popcorn and watch. They often believe that the issues and challenges of our world stem solely from the systems and infrastructures we live with, the people who run them, and not the state of human beings and human consciousness. How we think, how we feel, how we relate to one another and our planet, as well as the programs in our minds that create our world through actions- these apparently, are not important.

I also find that the primary criticism being spoken about when it comes to Q is whether or not it’s real, and in that context, the proof is whether or not it’s connected to Trump. But why are we not asking the question as to whether or not this could in fact be connected to Trump, and that it’s merely a propaganda arm of that campaign to engage ‘free thinkers’ into sitting still as this plan is carried out? Or perhaps not questioning whether this is another group looking to gain the control powerful leople have right now? I’m not trying to present a all negative outlook, I’m trying to get us to look past the classic good guys vs bad guys narrative for a moment, and see what else might be playing out here.

My goal here isn’t to discuss who’s right and who’s wrong, I feel that is yet again an addictive path that doesn’t always lead to greater peace and potential. Instead, my intention is to bring people together and encourage us to look at consciousness and our state of being as the driver of what will bring about actionable change.

The formula to my work has always been: look at current events to help understand the consciousness and state of thinking that is creating our world via our actions. From there, we can understand why we not only must shift our physical world, but also our ways of thinking and being so we can create a world that aligns with a new state of being/consciousness. Within that state of being, we take different actions that are founded in a different story, not the same old one. By exploring current events, we can see more clearly that we are at a time where we must wake up from the illusion we have chosen to accept about ‘what life is’ so we can expand our mind to possibility once again.

That said, as we explore this today, remember to observe where your narrative might be holding you back from reflecting on the deeper aspects of what opportunity we have here to truly change the way we think and create in our world.

The Saviour Complex

Within the Q narrative many people are building, (I.e. this isn’t what Q says but what people are creating themselves) Trump is the figure that is helping to bring this Great Awakening about with the backing of his military and intel connections. He challenges parts, not all, of an old regime that was very totalitarian in its approach. We have reported on the fact that there seems to be a deep shake-up of the old guard. He is clearly a threat to some powerful people, but is he and his connections the threat that will completely end their position of power? Is he someone about to bring about a world we truly know is possible in our hearts? Or is he simply a new leader that may do much of the very same stuff the ‘old guard’ did as he and who he works with continue to gain more power? In a sense how are we so sure he’s actually ‘benevolent’ like so many claim?

I’m not going to speculate too much as to how and why these predictive narratives get passed around so much on the internet and so forth, I feel ‘insiders’ can be passing ‘false intel’ to prominent voices in the alternative news space and they spread it… it can literally be that simple. But perhaps the more important aspect of this I want to bring forth is: what state of thinking, being and consciousness encourages us to put all our faith into these ideas? An idea that someone is coming to save us? Are we truly feeling empowered? Are we stuck on the idea of defeating an enemy? Where does that story come from? Does it lead us to neutrality, or are we still in the paradigm of polarity?

This idea of the positive people vs the negative people is the story humanity seems trapped in. To explain why this is a ‘trap’, let’s look a little deeper. Let’s say the deep state is removed, what do you want your world to look like? What does that world feel like? What state of thinking and being will you be envisioning and creating that world from? What are the features of this world? Have you thought about this? Is it informed by the ideas and programming you have learned to accept all these years? How much of it truly comes from your heart and own creativity vs what modern society has told you? Can we truly blame our inability to lovingly connect with fellow humans and create an incredible world solely on the deep state? Or is it something that is actually in our control, but we don’t do much about?

How about if these arrests do happen, what then? Who do we listen to when it comes to who creates and shifts our world? Do we wait for the alliance to tell us what to do? Have we learned a sense of empowerment through this process? Are we thinking that our empowerment will come from someone else giving it to us?

Herein lies the missing ingredient to this entire narrative that I feel is the powerful key to the change we all know is possible deep down inside. Regardless of whether we wish to believe in any of these predictions and narratives that have been forecasted for over 11 years, if self-empowerment, self-responsibility and a shift in consciousness is what will change this world, these arrests are completely unnecessary, and perhaps it’s time to explore our choices again. Instead of sitting back, writing articles, social media posts and watching youtube videos about it, what if we focused within and began to explore who we truly are, what thoughts, programs, belief systems and ideas make up how our thinking and consciousness create this world?

Would this not be more powerful and empowering than someone simply doing the work for us to save the world?

What we begin to realize is, it doesn’t matter if this Q narrative being built is in fact true or false, or whether these events will or will not happen. The strict focus on it is not letting us see the truth as to what we really must do – shift our consciousness and way of thinking and seeing ourselves and our world. Because the Q narrative often pulls people away from that, one can begin to explore whether or not Q is actually a well designed distraction to suppress humanity from becoming self-empowered.

A note before we continue, some have also suggested that extraterrestrials are taking care of these arrests, in this, I would ask people reflect as to whether or not this is the same saviour like narrative.

Reflection of Consciousness

What I have been observing for the past 2 years is a power struggle within the deep state. Imagine the mafia families of New York and the wars they have amongst one another when one family, or two, decide they want to go after the family that has been in power for quite some time. All hell breaks loose. Within the deep state, I have been feeling as though Trump and the group he is the public face for is simply warring with another group within the deep state, a power struggle of multiple groups. This is not a good guys vs bad guys, alliance vs the bad guys etc. It’s simply a power struggle within multiple factions of powerful people. Just like organized crime.

What’s interesting about this is that typically the deep state has been very united in their work to maintain power and control over billions of people in the world. Don’t think a small group of people can control billions? What about the fact that a tiny group of people just put everyone on lockdown in their homes for this pandemic? They absolutely can control mass perception and mass action, but we have to agree, we have to actually listen and give away our power. And for centuries we have.

Back to the deep state, their unity has been their strength, but one thing people have done is they have dehumanized those in positions of power. Somehow seeing them as something magical, something unattainable, something we can’t relate to. And in that, we don’t feel they are part of this dance we’re having together on this planet as humans. The sense is they have ultimate power, are not affected by anything and in no way would be experiencing some of the similar thought and emotional based struggles the average person deals with. This way of thinking comes from the simple process of dehumanization. It represents disconnection. After all, isn’t the story of disconnection the overwhelming paradigm of our world today? Whether you choose to blame the deep state or not for that, look at your everyday life and how you act, do you not make choices and actions that come from a state of disconnection from others? I’m sure we all will find examples of that until we have shifted our state of being, and that’s just the point, we all share this planet and are connected to the same collective consciousness – deep state included. And so the underlying consciousness that drives them, also drives the masses. We are all humanity.

So what does this mean in relation to how the deep state is unravelling? Their lack of unity, perhaps war that they are experiencing,  resembles the same disconnection we often experience in our society. Instead of it just happening in ‘societal culture,’ it’s also happening to the most powerful, people who have long been unified. This level of polarity and disconnection is on display for all to see as a mirror that reflects back saying, see what this looks like? I mean, think of how absurd news and politics has become over the few years? You can take one route and blame it on Trump, or you explore the idea that the level of immaturity, identity politics and insanity that has ensued is simply one of an adolescent state of thinking and consciousness that pits us against one another over petty issues. What more do we need to see to begin realizing that the change that is needed here is one of the basic foundation of who we are? The way we think, relate to this world, and each other etc.

When you witness all the clashes, does it not give you a chance to ask: Do you see what this feels like? Is this the choice you still want to make? The world you wish to live in? Is this all humanity is capable of? Is it time for a new approach? Is what I’m partaking in with polarity and identity politics making things peaceful or more intense?

Our Opportunity

Will these events happen? Time will tell, but if they don’t, just like with past predictions, those who choose the path of sticking to these narratives will find an excuse as to why this didn’t happen in April, and may push the prediction out a few months. While others may say it happened behind the scenes and we just won’t find out. Either way, it’s time to do the inner work.

In case I wasn’t clear, it doesn’t overly matter whether arrests happen one day or not, even if they were to, I believe they would happen at a time where humanity’s consciousness was at a point where upon the ‘removal’ of such a deep state, we would already be empowered within enough to be peaceful, unite, come together, and create our world in a way that truly resembles something incredible.

But to be honest with how I feel, if humanity was truly individually empowered, aware of who we truly are and the connectedness to all that we truly have, we would simply walk away from the game the deep state is playing and they would have no power. we GIVE them their power, putting them in jail doesn’t remove the consciousness within humans that will suddenly GIVE power to a new set of leaders.

This is less about swapping one set of leaders for better leaders, and about a shift in human consciousness that opens us up to who we truly are and what we are truly capable of. It’s a change in how we think, feel, relate to our world, and relate to each other. When we shift the way we think and shift our state of being, that informs a new way of creating within our physical world. THIS is what this shift is about. Does that happen with an addictive focus on the mass arrests? That’s a question for you to explore.

Our opportunity here, especially as we have a major interruption in what we call ‘normal life’, is to slow life down, and truly begin asking who we truly are and what type of world we want to create. Exploring that is possibly the most powerful and impactful thing we can truly do right now.

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.
