Crystalline Wisdom

We are sitting at a momentus and pivotal point in the history of humanity here on Earth. Our economies, political structures, and outmoded health & scientific dogmas are crumbling; people are questioning the very foundations upon which our modern day world has been built; and people are ready and willing to find/be meaningful contributors to a new Earth.

To meet this pivotal time, we are being called to change the way we view ourselves, to see the bigger picture of humanity in the vastness of our universe and align our lives to co-create a world based on the foundations of compassion, joy, and reverence for all life.

We are being called to open our hearts and connect once more to the ancient wisdom, the Crystalline Wisdom of Creation.  Crystalline Wisdom empowers us to fearlessly move beyond our comfort zones and be courageous enough to walk our truth, own our power and transform our lives from the inside-out.

To help you awaken to the infinite field of Crystalline Wisdom, this week I have created a short 20min video explaining ‘what is Crystalline Wisdom’ and most importantly how do we awaken to this most sacred and divine field.  Here is a little snapshot of what my talk will be about:

Crystalline Wisdom is more than just the application of crystals for healing; Crystalline Wisdom is the sacred and most cherished connection to the ancient wisdom held within the Crystalline Grid of Mother Earth. Earth’s Crystalline Grid contains the memory of the creation story, the divine intelligence of Earth’s history and holds the potential field that gives life to an evolving Earth and an evolving humanity.

Crystalline Wisdom awakens our consciousness to ‘see’ beyond the program of social, political and religious frameworks built on fear. We are then empowered to step outside of the program of limitation and co-create a new world based on foundations of LOVE, compassion, sovereignty and unity.

Crystal Healing – Crystal Consciousness

Screen Shot 2014-04-03 at 12.15.04 pmEnergetically, planet Earth is a complex crystalline grid, an electro-magnetic grid of energy held together via the physical and non-physical (etheric) crystals of Mother Earth.

Earth’s crystals encapsulate the elements of creation (Earth, Fire, Air, Water & Spirit) via a crystalline grid of energy that gives Earth her torroidal energy field, her gravity, her north & south poles, her atmosphere and supports the proliferation of a thriving eco-system of life here on Earth.

Earth’s crystals / crystalline grid is quintessentially the DNA storehouse and Akashic records (light records) of our planet.  The crystalline grid contains the memory of the creation story, the wisdoms of Earth’s history and holds the potential field that gives life to an evolving Earth and an evolving humanity.

Crystals – Sacred Ancient Wisdom

Crystals were sacred tools used by our ancient ancestors for healing, metaphysical pursuits, to connect with higher realms and for energy generation and transmission. Crystals are also mentioned in many holy books such as the Koran and the Bible and have been used by seers, sages and wise elders throughout time.

It wasn’t just the individual physical/energetic properties of crystals that were embraced by our ancient ancestors, but rather the knowledge that crystals are templates of a bigger field, the holographic field of all creation.   Thus our ancient ancestors were well aware that crystals were direct conduits of connecting with the multi-dimensional fields of consciousness of our Milky Way Galaxy and hence all Galaxy’s in all direction of time and space.

The Australian aborigines held great reverence for crystals and it was their medicine man or ‘Kadaicha’ that was the keeper of the stones.  Crystals were used for healing, dream-time ceremonies and to converse with nature spirits including the elementals.

The American Indians adorned themselves in crystal jewellery and used crystals in ceremonies and for spirit guide connection.  They used quartz to connect with their ancestors and animal spirits.  Crystals were also used to clearly ‘see’ dis-ease within the auric field and then subsequently to alter a persons energetic field to facilitate healing.

The Hebrew High Priests wore bejeweled amulets and breastplates.  These blessed jewels were used as  ‘oracles of higher consciousness’.  Theses crystals harmonically worked with the multi-dimensional field through sound, colour, light and sacred symbol for use in scrying, energy amplification and transmission.

The Egyptian pyramids are generator gateways of energy, awakening and stabilizing Earth’s crystalline field.  The Egyptians also used the light refraction of crystals for healing, as well as crushing crystals and combining them with oils for medicinal purposes.

The Maya used crystals for their divinitive powers particularly in the arts.  Ancient priests often consulted their visionary stones to connect with the divine ‘knowledge’ of creation through mathematics, science, music, astronomy, astrology & cosmology.

hands_on_crystal_healingThe Ancient Lemurians used crystals to anchor their body of light to Earth’s crystalline matrix. This process of anchoring brings balance and harmonization of the elements of Earth, Fire, Air & Water through Spirit and supports the 3rd dimensional body to fully embrace 5th dimensional light frequencies. Dis-ease was not seen as something to fear but rather understood as a sign of imbalance in the energetic/physical bodies.  Illness was thus an opportunity for bringing balance and harmony to the elements of creation through you, in order to raise the frequency of the physical body to hold/embrace higher light potentials to support spiritual growth and conscious evolution.

Crystals were also used by the Lemurians to support telecommunication / telepathy, teleportation and energy generation. Many Lemurian crystals are resurfacing in recent times to assist with both the Earth and our individual ascension process.

The Atlanteans used crystals to accelerate light potentials within the physical body through the elements Earth, Fire, Air & Water through Spirit.  Crystals were also used for energy generation, transmission, communication, weather control and to store information.  Vast libraries of information were stored in the crystals, called Record Keepers.  In late Atlantis, the development of the ego and the free-will of choice to control the natural forces of creation ultimately led to the demise of the Atlantean civilization.

Crystalline Matrix – Humans

The energy field (auric field) that surrounds our physical body is referred to as our ‘crystalline matrix’.

Crystal_HealingOur crystalline matrix is a complex Octahedron (diamond) energy field made up of seven different levels; the outer most field holds the highest 5th Dimensional frequencies and the inner most field holds the densest frequencies mirroring the formation of our 3rd Dimensional physical bodies.

The picture on the right visually demonstrates the Octahedron crystalline matrix that gives life to our physical body.

The top point of our crystalline matrix (diamond Octahedron) is referred to as our ‘Soul Star’, and contains the wisdoms of the evolutionary journey of our Soul.

The bottom point of our crystalline matrix (diamond Octahedron) is referred to as our ‘Earth Star’ and is the energy centre that anchors our crystalline matrix into the crystalline grid of mother Earth.

Our Crystalline Matrix and the Earths Crystalline Grid

Our crystalline matrix forms an integral part of the Earth’s crystalline grid – for our own personal evolutionary journey, for the awakening of humanity and for the evolutionary cycles of Mother Earth.

We have chosen this lifetime, as a 5th Dimensional Soul having a physical experience, to ground our crystalline matrix body of light into the crystals / crystalline grid of mother Earth such that we awaken our DNA, be divine ‘channels’ of Source through us, and be active participants in quantum leaping Earth into a new cycle of evolutionary consciousness.

Crystals for Healing & Sacred Wisdom

Just like our ancient ancestors, humanity on Earth today can use crystals and hence embrace crystalline wisdom for healing / conscious evolution on both a personal and planetary level.

Crystals & hence sacred crystalline wisdom reminds us that our universe is an infinitely expanding holographic field full of infinite potentials and possibilities.  As Earth is a fractal of the holographic field, our only limitations are created through are our belief systems, our choice to adopt societal memes and our willingness to stay locked within a program based on fear.

Your Soul came to Earth for a reason, to anchor your personal crystalline matrix into the greater crystalline matrix of Mother Earth.  When you anchor, you open as a divine channel of Light of consciousness from the heart/core of our galaxy into heart/core of Mother Earth and hence ‘wake up’ from the program for personal and planetary ascension.

By combining the sacred ancient knowledge of crystal healing with today’s scientific quantum principles we are empowered to transcend the deeply engrained labels we/society places upon us.  Crystalline wisdom awakens our consciousness to ‘see’ beyond the program of social, political and religious frameworks built on fear.  We are then empowered to step outside of the program of limitation and co-create a new world based on foundations of LOVE, compassion, sovereignty and unity.

Humanity is at a crossroads in our evolutionary cycle, but we have a choice.  We have a choice to awaken and embrace Love as conscious co-creators here on Earth.  We have the choice to release the pain of separation and Fear.   Each and every one of us holds the key to the quantum shift of Earth… and we make the choice to awaken and be active participants in this shift individually and collectively.  Crystals empower us to be this choice and co-create a new Earth in harmony, unity and enduring peace.

April 2014 – Cardinal Grand Cross – Astrology

As we now pass the March 2014 Equinox, April 2014 heralds a very rare astrological event, where four planets (PLUTO opposing JUPITER  &  MARS opposing URANUS), are at exact 900 angles  to one another, hence forming a Grand Cross in our celestial skies.

To add to this melting pot of transformational energies, the climax of this Cardinal Grand Cross on the 23/24 April 2014 takes place between two eclipses; a Total Lunar Eclipse on the 14 April 2014 followed by a Solar Eclipse on the 28 April 2014.

Section 1:  Overview Video

Sharing with you my 5 minute video covering the major points of interest and energetic potentials of the Cardinal Grand Cross of 2014.

 PLEASE NOTE:  There is a typo in the above Video.  At the 3:40 minute mark, there is a typo in the heading on a few of the slides.  The Annular Solar Eclipse is on the 29 April 2014 (not the 14/15 April, as that is the date of the Lunar Eclipse).  Ooops, apologies for any confusion… this is what happens when you create videos without much sleep !

Section 2:  Overview – Cardinal Grand Cross

As we now pass the March 2014 Equinox, April 2014 heralds a very rare astrological event, where four planets (PLUTO opposing JUPITER  &  MARS opposing URANUS), are at exact 900 angles  to one another, hence forming a Grand Cross in our celestial skies.

In addition, each of these planets are sitting at ’13 degrees’ of the 4 CARDINAL signs (Pluto 13 degrees Capricorn, Jupiter 13 degrees Cancer, Mars 13 degrees Libra & Uranus 13 degrees Aries).  Plus Mars is Retrograde (appearance of going backwards) during the Cardinal Grand Cross Alignment.

Here is a picture that summaries the Planets/Zodiac signs of the Cardinal Grand Cross:



To add to this melting pot of transformational energies, the climax of this Cardinal Grand Cross on the 23/24 April 2014 takes place between two eclipses; a Total Lunar Eclipse on the 14 April 2014 followed by a Solar Eclipse on the 28 April 2014.

In actual fact, this Cardinal Grand Cross is having a major effect on us over a 7 month period January to July 2014… or you could say this all started many years ago… but more about that in a moment.

In summary, the Cardinal Grand Cross opening a Quantum Gateway of potential to a most cherished ancient truth; a cosmic truth built upon the foundations of LOVE and a deep reverence for all of LIFE.   People are awakening en-masse to a higher wisdom and transcending the social, political and religious frameworks built on fear, to co-create a new world based on foundations of LOVE, compassion, sovereignty and unity.

Please continue onto Section 3 if  you would like to understand more about astrological terms and how they relate to the Cardinal Grand Cross.

Or, jump straight to Section 4 for a detailed understanding of the energetics of the Cardinal Grand Cross.

Section 3:  Overview of Astrological Terms

This section is a summary of a few astrological terms, such that you can understand the collective qualities and energetics of the Cardinal Grand Cross in greater depth if you are new to astrology.

What does Cardinal mean ?

The 12 signs of the zodiac are grouped or classified according to their energetic quality.  The groupings are:  CARDINAL (Aries, Cancer, Libra & Capricorn), FIXED (Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius, Taurus) and MUTABLE (Sagittarius, Pisces, Gemini & Virgo).

In addition, each of these groupings contains a zodiac sign that pertains to a particular element:  FIRE (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius), WATER (Cancer, Scorpio & Pisces), AIR (Libra, Aquarius & Gemini) & EARTH (Capricorn, Taurus & Virgo).

Thus the planets forming this Cardinal Grand Cross on the 23/24 April 2014 are sitting only in CARDINAL SIGNS and hence each of the ELEMENTS are represented as follows:

Pluto – Capricorn (Cardinal Earth)
Mars – Libra (Cardinal Air)
Jupiter – Cancer (Cardinal Water)
Uranus – Aries (Cardinal Fire)

So what are CARDINAL signs ?   Cardinal signs are the leaders of the zodiac, they are always forging ahead, initiating action and like to control and make things happen.  The CARDINAL signs also represent the beginning of each season.

Capricorn as a ‘Cardinal Earth’ – is very practical, rolls the sleeves up in a down to earth type of way to get things done.

Libra as a ‘Cardinal Air’ –  fosters partnerships & relationships, gets people together to get things done.

Cancer as a ‘Cardinal Water’ – is very emotional assertive, focussing on feelings through influencing people to take action from their heart/home.

Aries as a ‘Cardinal Fire’ – is more of an impatient ‘do it yesterday’ initiator, their enthusiasm and urgency drives action.

Energetics of Pluto, Mars, Jupiter & Uranus

Each planet within our Solar System energetically influences our day-to-day lives here on Earth.  The planets Pluto, Mars, Jupiter & Uranus that form the ‘4 POINTS’ of the April 2014 Cardinal Grand Cross resonate with the following qualities.

plutoPLUTO is the outer most planet in our solar system (and yes it is still a planet in astrology).. and its energy brings about transformation.  Pluto induces us to look into the deep recesses of our subconscious and transform that which doesn’t serve.  Of course we all have free will & choice… but pluto has a unique way of pushing your buttons and ‘making you’ transform or else !  Pluto can be pretty intense, but it can also make things happen with it’s archetypal masculine energy. Pluto takes approximately 248 years to encircle the zodiac and due to its orbit it spends between 12 and 31 years in each zodiacal sign.

MarsMARS is the planet of action and certainly lives up to its fiery red colour.  Mars gives us courage & self-confidence to be a warrior and meet our challenges head on.  Assertiveness and fearlessness is the name of the game with Mars.  Mars’s archetypal energy is masculine.  Mars takes approximately 2 years to encircle the zodiac.

jupiterJUPITER is the planet of expansion and induces us to explore higher wisdoms, intellectual pursuits and / or spiritual philosophies.  It opens up our consciousness to new horizons and ideologies and induces us to explore our own ethics & morality.  Luck is also associated with Jupiter and its energy its archetype energy is masculine.  Jupiter takes approximately 12 years to encircle the zodiac, thus spends approximately 1 year in each of the zodiac signs.

uranusURANUS is the planetary wildcard of rebellion and originality.  It is about breaking free of the mundane and creating a new world outside of the box.  It is Uranus that can spark revolutions.. as it has its gaze on more humanitarian, freedom loving and unconventional pursuits.  It’s energy can be intense, impulsive & erratic but it is this unconformity that gives rise to originality, invention & futurism.  Uranus’s archetypal energy is androgenous.  Uranus takes approx. 84 years to encircle the zodiac, thus tends to be more of a planet associated with a particular generation.

Retrograde Planets

A planet is said to be Retrograde when it appears to be moving backwards in the sky.  To understand just how this phenomenon occurs, please read my article on Retrograde planets:

Mars_RetrogradeDuring the April 2014 Cardinal Grand Cross, one of the four planetary members of the Cross is Mars, and this planet is moving Retrograde during the alignment.

When Mars is retrograde, this ‘action oriented’ planet’s energy lacks vitality as the energy is inverted inward.  It can at times feel as if you are paddling upstream, with endless delays, roadblocks, setbacks and detours dotting your path.

For some, these frustrations may give light to anger and resentment, for others these frustrations may potentiate ‘lord of the underworld’ war-like outbursts and could catalyse explosions that aren’t pretty.  It is a bit like capping an active volcano, if the internal pressure builds too much the end result could be very messy !

Opposition, Grand Cross & Squaring

Planets are in OPPOSITION to one another when they are 1800 apart on an astrological wheel.   As a circle has 3600, for 2 planets to be 1800 apart, they must be directly opposite one another on the wheel.  Each month when the Moon is in OPPOSITION to the Sun we have a full moon, viewed from our position here on Earth.

A GRAND CROSS is formed when 4 planets SQUARE one another on the astrological wheel, that is each of the four planets are 900 apart  (remember 4 x 900 = 3600 ).   Thus you can also view a GRAND CROSS as being 2 lots of OPPOSITIONS (remember oppositions are 1800 apart).

It is also important to note, that in a GRAND CROSS, all 4 planets will be from the same energetic quality (eg for our April 2014 Grand Cross the quality is CARDINAL), and hence each ELEMENT will be represented (ie Earth, Fire, Air & Water).

SQUARE_ASTROLOGYWhen planets are SQUARING (thus are at 900 of each other), there is an inner tension created and a sort of conflict.  It is like we are being drawn between the energy of both planets, pulled in either direction, leaping back and forth… but not being able to bring the two into equilibrium together.  It’s as if you are caught within the problem and there is never any solution.

However as the saying goes: when you raise your consciousness and look ‘outside of the square’ solutions are found.  Thus the dynamic and urgent energy of a SQUARE, magnifies the resistance from within and brings opportunities for profound growth.  SQUARES demand change and the need to take action to foster a resolution.

OPPOSITION_ASTROLOGYWhen planets are in OPPOSITION, the tensions felt are not as intense as the SQUARE, but the conflict experienced through polarity still brings with it profound opportunities of insight, resolution and change.  As the old saying goes ‘it takes two to tango’, and this couldn’t be more true in an OPPOSITION.

During an OPPOSITION it may feel like you are in a tug-of-war, pulled between the polarities of each planetary energy and hence swinging from side to side. It is as if the outside world is imposing upon you situations or challenges that oppose your beliefs, desires or wants.  As a result, polarity can give rise to doubt as we are continually faced with seeing one side as right and the other side as wrong, or as another saying goes ‘stuck between a rock and a hard place’.

However, whilst the energy of the planets involved in an OPPOSITION can appear to be mutually exclusive, the tension can give rise to integration, finding how both opposites relate to one another and healing that ‘either / or’ attitude from within.  It is an opportunity to integrate the energy of both polarities, and embrace the complementary wisdoms they bring into your life.

Section 4:  Cardinal Grand Cross April 2014 – Detailed Analysis

As noted in ‘Section 1 & 2’, April 2014 heralds a very rare astrological event, where four planets (PLUTO opposing JUPITER and MARS opposing URANUS), are at exact 900 angles  to one another, hence forming a Grand Cross in our celestial skies.

In addition, each of these planets are sitting at ’13 degrees’ of the 4 CARDINAL signs (Pluto 13 degrees Capricorn, Jupiter 13 degrees Cancer, Mars 13 degrees Libra & Uranus 13 degrees Aries).  Plus Mars is Retrograde (appearance of going backwards) during the Cardinal Grand Cross Alignment.

To add to this melting pot of transformational energies, the climax of this Cardinal Grand Cross on the 23/24 April 2014 takes place between two eclipses; a Total Lunar Eclipse on the 14 April 2014 followed by a Solar Eclipse on the 28 April 2014.

Based on what I have discussed in Sections 1 & 2 above, what does this alignment mean for humanity at this time on Earth ?

Change.  Change, Change & More Change !!!

I know, I know, many of you are tired of hearing this word over and over again… because it seems like CHANGE has been the only constant in recent years.   From the time Pluto first ventured into Capricorn in 2008, Uranus entered Aries in 2010, the Cardinal T-Square of Saturn-Uranus-Pluto in 2010 and the continual squaring of Uranus-Pluto from 2010 to 2016 (watch this great video for an overview) … change is all around us and through us.

I even did a trusty google-thesaurus search to find another word for CHANGE… it kinda sums up the energy of this time…. shift, revolution, transformation, transition, metamorphosis, reconstruction, remodelling & transmutation to name just a few.

Whilst the Cardinal Grand Cross reaches it’s peak in April 2014, the 4 planets PLUTO-JUPITER-MARS-URANUS have been getting into position over the last few months and after the April peak will continue to ripple their effects through us until June/July of this year… and most probably for the years to come.  So what’s in store you may ask ?

So what’s in Store ?

The OPPOSITION of Pluto-Jupiter & Uranus-Mars combined with the respective SQUARING of these planets… is creating a dynamic situation of intensity, conflict and inner-outer tension… compelling us to look deeply within and consider our own moral, ethical & humanitarian values AND how these values may OPPOSE or CONFLICT with what we see playing out on the world stage.

Pluto in Capricorn is about inspiring major transformations in the heirarchial structures of governments, corporations & all those in places of power.  With Pluto SQUARING Uranus in Aries we are feeling an intense desire to rebel, revolt and not sit back and take it anymore.  We are so dissatisfied with the lies, deceit and propaganda, we just want to jump ship and start a new… planet Mars anyone ?… I am sure Uranus in Aries could make this happen ?  Yet at the same time, we know from a higher consciousness that running away is futile, as we need to work pro-actively to dismantle & tear-down and then rebuild, restructure and transform from the ground up.

The OPPOSITION of Pluto in Capricorn with Jupiter in Cancer is challenging our values as a humanity, as a global humanity of citizens here to be caretakers of our Earth for future generations.  In the last 150 years our world population has escalated from 1 billion to 7 billion, we now use our natural resources at a 30% greater rate than is sustainable, 55,000 species on planet Earth become extinct each year, every 3.6 seconds a person dies of starvation, yet in developed countries up to 35% of the adult population are obese.  Earth is our ‘home’ and all Earthlings are our family, then why do we trash our home and allow some members of our family to starve.  Where are our collective values and why are only some of us actively pursuing kindness, morality and equality ?

The OPPOSITION of Jupiter & Pluto is bringing conflict to our old structures of what makes a family.  We feel compelled to break down the borders and evolve into a unified, yet diversified tribe.  What gives the right for politicians to prevent people from seeking asylum as they escape persecution due to their religion, beliefs, political options or the colour of their skin.  What gives our governments or church leaders the right to determine what is a ‘family’.  Family is a personal choice (and has nothing to do with gender), family is community (the importance of having a collective voice), family in National (what are our countries values and how do we complement other Nations) and family Global (we are all ONE0.  How can we LOVE one another,  honour our diversity and in so doing live together in Harmony, Prosperity for all & Unity ?

Adding to this eclectic mix of Cardinal Grand Cross energy is the OPPOSITION of Uranus with Mars.   Mars in Libra is about action, fighting for justice, truth, transparency and equality in our lives.   And as noted above, Uranus in Aries is the stubborn freedom fighting revolutionary who has unorthodox ways of making things happen.  We want truth & transparency… and yet we have ‘ways of making you speak’ (that is a Maxwell Smart quote.. LOL).

As Mars in Libra SQUARES both Pluto & Jupiter, we are being pulled between forcing the truth to come to light in all facets of the structures of this world, be it politics, the church, corporations & the like.  At the same time, we are being pulled to emotionally embrace these structures and try and find a sense of justice in equality that can take us forward into the future.  Is this possible, can the current world structure actually support morality, ethics and self-responsibility.  Of what the heck, lets just rip is all apart Uranus in Aries says and start again !

A most unpredictable aspect of the Mars OPPOSITION & SQUARES with this Cardinal Grand Cross, is that Mars will be travelling retrograde during the peak of this Cardinal Grand Cross in April 2014. Note: Mars moved retrograde at the beginning of March 2014 and will move direct again in the 3rd week of May 2014.

As I mentioned in Section 2, when Mars is retrograde, this ‘action oriented’ planets energy lacks vitality as the energy is inverted inward.  It can at times feel as if you are paddling upstream, with endless delays, roadblocks, setbacks and detours dotting your path.   It is a possibility with Mars retro, that peoples frustrations of not being able to create change, of being so fed up with lies & deceit and feeling powerless as a result could create internalised anger, bitterness & resentment.   For some, this could be like a pressure-cooking building in intensity and set to explode in any moment.   Whilst I don’t like to project or give energy to the shadow side, there does remain the possibility of warfare, explosions and ‘do-or-die’ mentality playing out at the drop of a hat.

The Power of 13

Bringing this Cardinal Grand Cross into an even greater crescendo of energy, each of the planets – Pluto, Mars, Jupiter & Uranus are also sitting at an exact 130  in their respective signs of Capricorn, Libra, Cancer & Mars.

As discussed in my book ‘Shealla-Dreaming’ the number 13 is a most sacred number.  It represents the 13 Spheres of Metatron’s Cube, the 13 Sacred Keys/Laws of Creation, the 13 Points of our Activated Light Body, our 13 levels of consciousness through our DNA, the 13 Dimensions of Experience within our Milky Way Galaxy as well as the 13 Archangels of Creation.

Metatrons_Cube_13_SphereSo what does this tell us ?   During the Cardinal Grand Cross Alignment our consciousness is being directed beyond the 3D physical as we awaken through to the 13th central sphere of Metatron’s Cube.   The 13th sphere (the central circle) represents death and rebirth, endings and beginnings and is the field of LOVE that permeates through all of Creation in all directions of time and space.

Through the number 13 of the Cardinal Grand Cross our current stellar/galactic/cosmic cycles are working with us to awaken our own individual radars and tune our antennas to a deep and most cherished ancient truth; a cosmic truth built upon the foundations of LOVE and a deep reverence for all of LIFE.   People are awakening en-masse to a higher wisdom and transcending the social, political and religious frameworks built on fear, to co-create a new world based on foundations of LOVE, compassion and unity.

Lunar & Solar Eclipse

Now finally, as if any of the above energy potentials aren’t QUANTUM enough, the April 2014 Cardinal Grand Cross falls right in the middle of a Lunar & Solar Eclipse.  Below is a summary of the Energy of our Lunar & Solar Eclipses… which bring a greater understanding of the potentials of the April 2014 Cardinal Grand Cross.

For a full explanation of how Lunar & Solar Eclipses occur & their energy potentials please view my article:

Lunar_EclipseOn the 14/15 April 2014 we have a TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE (when the Moon is full and the Earth blocks the Suns rays from partially/fully reaching the Moon, thus the Moon is cast within the Earth’s shadow).  A Lunar Eclipse provides a quantum opportunity to release deep-seated wounds, move beyond old fears and to transcend negative patterns or traits within the shadow self.  It is time to ECLIPSE anything that maybe holding you back.

During this LUNAR ECLIPSE, the Full Moon in the Air sign of LIBRA, is reflecting the light of the SUN in the Fire sign of Aries.  Thus this Full Moon/Total Lunar Eclipse is about acknowledging the world around you is but a reflection of you.  This full moon highlights that underneath the physical facade, we are all the same… and united in our commonality we can change the world for the better.  It is our amazing diversity (ARIES) that creates the whole in balance and harmony (LIBRA) – so lets all join together in a heartspace this Full Moon and have gratitude for the amazing array of life on this planet and honour the unity of all creation.  I cannot think of a better energy to catalyse the potential of the Cardinal Grand Cross which occurs 8 days post eclipse !

Note also, that the 14/15 April 2014 Full Moon, ‘The Christ Full Moon’ is the first of three powerful full moons.  Please see my April 2014 Lunar Report for more details.

Solar_EclipseOn the 29 April 2014 we have a SOLAR ECLIPSE.  A Solar Eclipse occurs on the New Moon, whereby the Moon moves between the Earth and Sun, obscuring Earth’s view of the Sun.

This will be an ANNULAR SOLAR ECLIPSE as the Sun behind the Moon will be seen as a very bright ring of light (an annulus) around the dark disk of the Moon.. ie thus the Moon will be emblazoned with a ‘Ring of Fire’.  This occurs as the Moon is it’s furthest distance away from Earth, thus the apparent size of the Moon is smaller than that of the Sun.

The energy of a Solar Eclipse ‘obscures’ our vision forward, such that we can take time to reflect on the present and truthfully see how this relates to our past.  The veil of illusion is parted during a Solar Eclipse and the opportunity to see/be/feel/experience our truths unfolds.

The insights gained are not about dragging up old energy, or reliving painful events or experiences, but rather to positively reassess where you have been and use this knowledge to make quantum leaps on your path moving forward.

Whilst a Solar Eclipse can create upheaval in your life, this ‘forced’ opportunity to reassess or re-evaluate your life provides a profound opportunity to leap into a new sphere of existence beyond your perceived limitations.

For this New Moon Solar Eclipse, the Moon & Sun are in the Earth sign of Taurus, bringing a sense of grounding, nurturing and practicality to this eclipse.   What do you really value in your life, what makes your heart-n-soul rejoice, and how can you live your life as an expression of that joy.  As we move into this New Moon Solar Eclipse , make a gratitude list of all the things in your life that make you ‘wealthy’ and make a vow to LIVE these truths as part of your everyday existence.

To help ground this Taurus New Moon Solar Eclipse energy vow to spend time in nature, cook with passion, polish your crystals and open your Heart and receive the LOVE of Mother Earth.

So where do we find ourselves now ?

As I write this this article, it is March 2014 and we are already seeing this perfect storm of conflict/change well in motion as the Cardinal Grand Cross has been coming together over many months (years).

Intense weather patterns in all regions of the planet (eg drought in Australia, Record high/low temperatures, Polar Vortex in … etc), political upheavals (google the words ‘political upheaval 2014’ and you get 2.79 million results), more ‘outings’ of truths within the church, uproars in marriage equality and fights for justice in all areas of our lives.

In particular, just last weekend here in Australia we had the ‘March in March’… an event organised by the people for the people to make a stand against a government that is not working in the best interests of the greater all.  In addition, there are hundreds of community inspired organisations such as Getup and Australians for Action… that are a voice of and for the people.  And on the March 2014 Equinox New Earth Nation is launching Zero Point Time.  I just love New Earth Nations definition of what it means to be a global citizen:

 “A man or woman who, having absolute sovereign power of his/her own nation state, without condition or limitation, and without presumption of subservience to anyone or anything, does endeavour to live in accordance with natural law, to do no harm, and to mutually assist one another to advance their own perfection and that of the human condition.”

So what is it about CHANGE ?

Lets face it, that darn word ‘CHANGE’ can be hard to embrace, as we can be creatures of habit and feel vulnerable in the throws of chaos.  But as so eloquently explained by Brene Brown, when we allow ourselves to be vulnerable we FREE ourselves from the constraints of fear and control and give ourselves permission to be different and experience the highest expressions of joy, creativity and LOVE.

Yes this Cardinal Grand Cross maybe pushing your buttons and like a centrifuge forcing to the surface deepest fears, & darkest shadows all in a melting pot of anxiety, uncertainty, shame and self-doubt.  But you have a choice, you can surrender, allow yourselves to be vulnerable and allow yourselves to ‘feel the fear and do it anyway’.   CHANGE is happening, it is here, right now and is rippling through the field for the years to come.

It is this CHANGE that we have been waiting for.  Lets embrace it, love it, lets charismatically caress it and be it !   The world is never going to be the same and that is a good thing, so lets ‘be the CHANGE that we want to see in the world’.
