Libra Full Moon~10th April 2017: Love takes Time!

There is always some madness in love. But there is also always some reason in madness…Friedrich Nietzsche

Who can refute the fact that there is both madness and reason in love? And no one echoes this sentiment that a Libra Full Moon which is all about BALANCE! Welcome to the party lovely people, things just got slightly easier with Libra, the crowd pleaser and the emphasis is on RELATIONSHIPS!

This is a super social Full Moon, so expect to hang out with friends and random people. Yes the whole Jupiter RX in Libra has a lot to do with finding foreign people and things interesting.

April’s Full Moon, the Full Pink April’s Full Moon, the Full Pink Moon, heralds the appearance of the moss pink, or wild ground phlox—one of the first spring flowers. It is also known as the Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon, and the Fish Moon…THE FARMER’S ALMANAC

So what are you ready to experience under this Pink Moon. I can tell you, it will be intense, in a sort of balanced way. Yes there will be an urgency, yes there will be an inner hunger to connect and make love, but this energy is Libran, therefore pretty balanced. An interesting observation I made. Every time I see a pink aura on someone, that person is usually hankering for a love interest. It may even mean that relationships are central to her world, romantic ones and pink aura is quite common.

During this spectacular Pink Moon, two planets will be going retrograde. Venus RX in Pisces and Mercury RX in Taurus. See how Venusian the whole experience will be! Both Libra and Taurus are ruled by Venus. And she is raising emotional Tsunamis in Pisces.

How can you deal with turbulent emotions? I would suggest- do something for the planet…do something for Earth. You ask, how can I do that? Well, go Vegan for starters. You would have done a lot. Feed people. Feed children. Help refugees. Help the differently abled. Volunteer to teach. Trust me, once you have initiated this action, you will feel much better. No matter what tragedy has befallen you.

You are not your tragedy. You are sentient life, entangled with all of creation. Breathing, pulsating, throbbing, vibrating like one gigantic organism. This Full Moon energy can make you feel like you are in a RELATIONSHIP with the Earth. In fact, make it a relationship with reality. Everything in it. Can you imagine that? Huns that is the truth. We are all interconnected, we are all part of the WHOLE.

We are dealing with Venusian energy on steroids. So love and finances are the main components, but think of the wide array of shit that falls in these brackets. Love and Money! Sex is intertwined with both these and so are all aspects sensual. Even Art is all about love and passion, developing an idea, getting funds to execute it and then making money. Tada. It is like the snake eating its own tail. Money and love- the most volatile combination!

Venus to me is how we process and experience pleasure and leisure- two vital aspects of human evolution. Without these we would not have gotten  very far. Sentiments, values and things we hold dear are all Venus’ influence. Also we realise greater truths through art and culture.

Just be mindful that COMMUNICATION can be very challenging during this Merc retro. I have already begun to feel it. I had this great talk over the phone with a potential funder and then when I met him face to face, it fell flat. The whole scenery felt so plastic. As if all things Venusian have been drained from it.

Venus rules attraction. How sexy you appear and how you get attracted. With a favourable Venus placement in your natal chart, you may be very desirable to the opposite sex and you will also be attracted to people and things. A magnetic pull will be felt with beauty.

She is RX in Pisces. Please read my two articles detailing this transit.

With this retrograde and where it is places in our charts we will have to deal with financial obligations and relationships. With Saturn going retrograde on the 6th of April, this could point to legal cases that might drain your finances. Just be aware of this.

The Moon and Jupiter will be conjunct during this Full Moon. This could signify emotional outbursts, tantrums, drama and other public displays of emotions. Tap into higher thought frequency this day as remember that when Jupiter touches those thoughts they WILL BE EXPANDED. Just make a conscious effort to think of things with self love.

I will not say- BE POSITIVE. Because being fake positive takes away from living. Really living means we should embrace dualistic feelings and that leads to a healthy, well balanced psyche. Just like a developed Libra has. So get that sage, get that gratitude journal and begin the seemingly insurmountable task of cleansing all those troubled emotions.

Think of the film- The Vow. An accident, during their honeymoon. Paige has a serious head injury and is in a coma. She wakes up but does not recognise him and now begins his journey of reconnecting and he wins her back in the end. Very inspiring. Very Libran, putting her before him…all her needs, because he felt he had let her down. He did more than enough to make it up.

I wish we all could do that…put somebody else’s needs before our own. But we can’t. We’re too selfish, caught in our own mundane realities. It is just us, us, us. These energies coming from from the cosmos is asking us otherwise. Imploring us to consider that there are other sides to the story.

Look I began April in a rather chaotic manner. I had so much hope and then I faced some disappointments. I had to restructure my work ideas and improvise constantly, so I’m guessing it might have been complicated for you as well. Do you feel like you’re being pulled in multiple directions? I felt so, till I reminded myself that April will be a month of constant flux. Four planets are changing signs! Saturn, Mercury, Venus, Pluto and they are in shadow periods, about to go retro or coming out of shadow zones.

Therefore nothing will feel solid. Again the ground has been pulled from under our feet and it might feel like drowning. I suggest stop struggling. Firstly calm your breath and still your mind. Then learn to flow. Flow with the momentum of the Universe. It is guiding you. Don’t be afraid to rework that proposal as many times as is needed. Hard work and determination will be rewarded. But keep that burning desire in check. Remember Buddha’s wise words- Desire is the root of all evil. Your rewards may take time…in matters of love and money.

The Mars/Pluto trine will give you focus to continue on your path even though the retro energy may make you feel like giving up. Please ask for help if you want to abandon someone or some project. You might regret it. Use SWITCHWORDS~~REACH-GUIDE-POINT if you are caught making a difficult decision. It will guide you. If you have trouble sleeping write 94 on your left wrist.

There is also a square in play- Saturn in Sag squares Venus conjunct Chiron in Pisces. Healing energies are available to do inner work. No matter how raw your bleeding heart feels, let the blue healing light numb the pain. Let the blue light from Sangye Menla’s(Medicine Buddha’s) heart cool that suffering. Let it all go. Saturn, Venus and Chiron are asking us to look for deeper meaning.

What is meaning you ask? Without going into the Semantics and Foundational theory of meaning, I will tell you one thing simply. Nothing has any meaning, you give it meaning. Like the Observer’s paradox. The wave becomes a particle, a fixed point in space and time because you observe it.

I recently read about this study that curiosity actually leads us to have more meaning in life. So does compassion, empathy. The possibilities are endless. We can do anything with this. It is up to us to find meaning. We need to dive into the seas of samsara and bring out our very own pearl.

This Pink Moon as the Iroquois people named it is about tenderness, birth and new beginnings. When my baby was born, she was pale pink and each time I have assisted in animal birth, I have seen that irrespective of species all babies are born pink! Incredible! But so are the baby buds on trees- they are pink and then with photosynthesis and the release of chlorophyll they turn green.

I am going to give you a very special meditation module- called the Pink Meditation or the Yoni Meditation. The vagina is pink and the tongue that pleasures it is also pink. The Japanese associate the pink Cherry Blossom with a vagina.

Create your scared space. Visualise a pink vagina. You might be closed eyed or you could use a rose quartz crystal to symbolise it. If you can worship the real thing, then nothing like it, but, but, but…the essential prerequisite will be to DELETE all preconceived concepts like shame, guilt from your mind. There is nothing shameful about the Yoni. She is sacred. You are worshipping SHAKTI in her rawest form.

Sage the image or the crystal. You can even mentally “sage”. The intention is to purify the energy and to bring forth positive vibrations. You can use touch or mental touch to connect with the vagina. If you are going to touch it, then make sure you have spend a good amount of time just GAZING at it and admiring it. Offer the Yoni pink items this Pink Full Moon. You can offer pink Champagne, candy, sweets, incense, flowers and other items to her…the Vagina!

Then visit different parts of it, loving it, worshipping it. All the while sending love to the cosmic yoni or mother-matrix, the portal to life. The Sacred Tao gives the Vagina many monikers- “the golden lotus”, “the gates of paradise” and “precious pearl” and “sacred treasure”. You can think of special names too.

Feel no lust. Remember that lust is negative vibration. You will feel attraction but bring that sentiment to adoration. Like you are worshipping the vagina of a Goddess. Then pay homage to each part of the vagina, the clitoris, the vulva, etc. Just surrender to the Cosmic Vagina through a symbol or a human form or a mental form. Don’t forget to contemplate SHAKTI or the SACRED FEMININE.  Thought forms are just as powerful and conclude by breathing deeply and chanting AUM. The Yoni Puja as described in Tantric texts is highly intricate and esoteric. But adapt this ancient act and breathe modernity into it. Adapt it and benefit from this wisdom.

Love has the same relationship to the soul as breathing has to the body – Osho

Venus RX into Pisces: Finding Meaning or Philosophical Suicide?

“Myths are made for the imagination to breathe life into them,” Albert Camus

Oh my Camus! There was a time in my life when my trinity comprised of Kafka, Camus, Sartre! But isn’t this something we would expect Camus to say. Rejoice in the ABSURDISM of life. So Camus says myths don’t really exist! But we create them and breathe life into them. This is so very much the theme I am going to be discussing. Breathing your brand of meaning into something that may or may not be seemingly meaningful…you are not being caught in this binary though, merely entertained by it. Meaning or suicide- both irrelevant! Read on…

Humans…always caught up in the frenzy of trying to find meaning. Never JUST BEING! Just doing- very apt Nike! We can just do, but hardly just be.  And now more than fucking ever- we need to JUST BE!

April- a month where some very important astro players will go retrograde or will be in shadow periods. But I will be discussing Venus RX returning to have a drink with Pisces! Fuck no! Not again! Everything we have been trying to raise up from the ground and create structure will likely dissipate! WTF! We just spend all that time making that sand castle!

Hello! Sandcastles are temporary! They will crumble. The sands of time shall shift and this is our lesson my beloveds. This is our lesson. Are you going to breathe life into the myths we have created internally or externally? Are we going to birth this internal dialogue into manifestation? Camus says we should, no we must.

No matter what critics will say, they can never take away from Camus his HUGE HEART and Venus rules the heart chakra and if you notice when people operate from this place, the world often condemns them as ABSURD. Kind of like Venus retro in Pisces. ABSURD and dualistic. How we bear unhappiness because we know happiness is about to come and how life can be so bloody meaningful and entirely pointless the very next moment?

I think this feeling of abject hopelessness in the face of duality can only be overcome by the idea that we fucking stop trying to create meaning all the time. That is our first downfall. Why are we so hellbent on trying to perceive meaning? Let it lie says Venus RX in Pisces as she ingresses back to Pisces where she had just been a few moths ago and she will be there till 29th April!

Camus says the alternate to finding meaning is committing suicide! Philosophical suicide! What else is there to live for? You might be dead anyways if you don’t philosophise! There is no meaning in life or in death- as Camus would have us know, but there is only ENTERTAINING death and life and never becoming slave to one or the other! What a profound thought! Echoing esoteric philosophy! JUST BE! Entertain as in stay in play- lila. Play with the Universe!!! But always maintain a sense of detachment. So Buddha-like!

Why am I harping about Camus? Past lovers are going to create havoc with our senses…Venus RX…HELLO? Yes Camus mystified me with that iconic image of his. That cigar in his mouth. So sexy and French(Algerian??!!) Enough with that, I will probably curl up with The Rebel as I sip my chamomile in bed. Motivation for rebellion and revolution! Been my motto, so to speak. What does Beelzebub stand for? Fucking REBELLION!

Venus is in charge of your GUT as well. They are now saying that the gut is your second brain and is obviously connected to your heart as well. Remember to keep taking those probiotics. Healthy gut bacteria can make a human function optimally. Make sure you don’t have Leaky Gut Syndrome or its onset. In fact, leaky gut has been linked to celiac disease, rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s disease, colitis, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis (MS), autism, cancer… and the list goes on. The connection between leaky gut and chronic illness makes sense because a) approximately 70% of your immune system cells are found in your gut, and b) the chronic inflammation caused by leaky gut is what can lead to inflammatory disease.

“All Disease Begins In The Gut” -Hippocrates

Stay away from GMO Soy, corn, refined vegetable oils(which we use in abundance in India), white refined sugar and processed food. Avoid dairy. Look at going Vegan even if for a week to see how you feel. Eat cabbage, lentils, green beans and quinoa. Soaked and sprouted nuts such as almonds and walnuts are also good sources of L-glutamine which is the remedy for this disease. Yoga can be a lifesaver as it gives the internal organs a massage. Consult a doctor for supplements and practise UTTANASANA or the STANDING FORWARD BEND pose. Use Amber, Citrine or Blue Lace Agate to heal your abdominal issues. You can email me for details on this.

Venus is dissolving all sorts of concepts of love we held, images of ex lovers we still carry in our hearts, she is screaming for us to let go once and for all…all those hidden wounds of the heart. Invoke Venus to heal you with forgiveness issues. Forgive ex lovers, and family members, especially if you’ve had any financial problems with them.

However, there is a softness to this energy that I have been feeling. It has made me so emotional. There is so much happening in my life and so much not happening that I want should happen. This happening and not happening was driving me to a frenzy.

I had to calm down and take the evening off, even though I had bookings. Overwhelming and deep are these emotions that are arising in my heart. Just recently one of my exes got in touch with me. I had broken it off with him when I was sixteen. So that was ages ago and there was nothing to it. But this time when he came back to my life, I realised how DISCONNECTED we are. How very different are our FREQUENCIES and paths and they have always been! Like wtf was I thinking? Venus send me a blessing and the whole plot sort of untraveled before my eyes. There was nothing to do, but just BLOCK!

That is what you need to do- BLOCK! If someone is a psychic vampire(lover, friend, financial partner) then just dump them and move on. I know it is not so easy if you are committed through contracts or other formalities, but remember this retrograde cycle of so many biggies going retro will make us PURGE what we need to.

There is a seductive energy to all this whirling Venusian RX energy. Today you can charm anyone if you set your mind to it. Yes even that cute guy at yoga class. Lol! I am not kidding guys…today you can finally ask your dream date out. The chances are high that he or she will say yes. But do it with style, with panache! Don’t suffocate her. Let her independent streak be honoured as Venus would have it that way. All I say is keep your mommy diamond ring still in the safe. No don’t even get her to try it out. Hold still till the planets shake off this sluggish, unsure energy.

If you’re single, then a little self pleasure hurt nobody! So figure out what works for you and make yourself happy. Alternately you can go out and try to find someone. You may be surprised.

If you’re not really lapping up the sexual vibes, then please use this energy to broadcast UNIVERSAL LOVE to the whole plane of existence and beyond. Meditate, plant trees, hug trees, have sex with them(ecosexuality)…do whatever makes you happy!

Some of you are feeling on nerves’ end, jittery, on edge! Yes this astro definitely can make you lapse into sadness. If you suffer from depression, it might act as a catalyst, so it is imperative you continue your soul work.

Keep mindful and definitely keep healthy during these times. In fact, a lot of you will not feel like eating much. Greens, nuts and seeds should work. Do pumpkin seeds. I am chomping some right now and they are delicious. Don’t hanker after illusive dreams regarding finance right now. Be careful and do not go for any major investments. Just ask Venus to feed your intuition, she does it so well.

All said and done, let me tell you that Venus in Pisces can be incredibly healing if you manage to FREE yourself…free yourself from redundant hateful ideas, free yourself from bigotry, free yourself from DIS-ease, free yourself from slavery of any kind…just ask VENUS to set you free. Fly high, like an eagle…soar on the wings of truth!

The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion…Albert Camus
