Calling all Angels….Sinners and Saints

[A total lunar eclipse takes place just past midnight on the night of Dec.20th/21st. Totality is @ 1:13 am MST. For more info, click on these links: Lunar eclipse 12.21.10.] & [Sky & Telescope]

CZ angel This week is big for all of us. Winter solstice and the last full Moon of 2010 – which also happens to be a total lunar eclipse (visible in all of North and South America) – occur in tandem on Dec. 21st. A synchronistic ending and new beginning – the fruition of the December lunar eclipse cycle and the initiation of winter – take place at virtually the same time this year, heralding a cosmically charged celestial event, an energetic manifestation of ethereal regeneration and rebirth. Old patterns and fresh paths dance in circles of redemption and resurrection, life and death merge in an evolutionary process of energetic re-creation. Out of the ashes, from dust to dust, the alpha and the Omega. Biblical sayings and spiritual teachings, chaos theory and quantum physics, magic and miracles, angels and avatars gather as the shortest and longest days and nights of the southern and northern hemispheres fall in harmony with the exact opposition of the Sun and Moon. Our greatest expectations, most cherished dreams and most vivid memories collide in a process of reawakening and reinvention. We are at once aware of and in touch with the eternal partnership of polarities and are asked to see the inherent necessity, beauty and balance in and of them all.

Blue angel The third of five full Moons forming at the last degree of a sign, the Dec. 21st total lunar eclipse is another mandate for universal compassion and wisdom. Much like Pisces – the last sign of the tropical zodiac – the final degree of a sign indicates the sign’s most evolved state or energetic imperative. Taking place at 29º Sagittarius/Gemini, the world and its inhabitants are slipping into an electromagnetic force field that opens portals, shifts grids and spirals dimensions. Now within 3º of the Galactic Center, the winter solstice Sun shimmers with shades of Mayan cosmology and prophetic foreshadows of 2012.

Truth, Natural Law and the phenomenal world-in-total are the birthmarks of Sagittarius. Teaching, preaching, expanding and exploring are its pastimes. Ruled by Jupiter – planet of sages, gurus, saints, avatars and angelic beings – Sagittarius calls the higher-self to the pursuit of right action, ignites passion and fuels goodness. Gemini, ruled by Mercury – planet of tricks and tests, medicine, messages, magic and motion – is primal mind, first thought, curiosity, communication and learning. The celestial union of these two polarities joins apprentice with master and coyote with crusader. It’s like putting the brightest, most eager student in class with the most brilliant, learned professor – the novice and the expert – sparks fly and things happen. Knowledge and experience are shared, great things happen.

Baby angel It is here we see and understand the thin line between sinner and saint. We recognize their characteristics and personality traits and that they are alive and well in each of us. We rise above judgment and intuit the dependence of one upon the other, equals in existence and experience. We are being asked to join the parts of ourselves that have knowledge and foresight with the parts of ourselves that have none, cultivate divinity – inner and outer – and explore new spiritual paths. Calling all angels, it’s time to rise to the highest heights, touch the stars, ride the moonbeams and rock the ages. Dark and light, boy and girl, war and peace – may the Great Mystery embrace, direct, protect and guide us upon journeys of joy and paths of heart. Happy Full Moon Eclipse and Merry Winter Solstice!

Aries (Mar. 20-Apr.19)
Honesty, integrity and credibility stand as a magical trinity of virtue as the winter solstice eclipse shimmers moonbeams of hope and possibility into your heart and soul. Life is an equation of action and consequence. If you say you’re going to do something, do it. Recognize the power of your word and use it impeccably. Focus on goodness and do the next right thing.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)
Wisdom and compassion come in handy this week as you approach a major crossroads in your relationships. Hanging on to resentments causes personal pain – it’s like taking poison and hoping the other person dies. Consider a practice of detoxification – letting go of what hurts. In the quest for happiness, we often create misery. Let go and live free.

Gemini (May 21-June 21)
A late degree Gemini/Sagittarius lunar eclipse demands honesty and integrity – no fudging, no white lies, no delusions or dogma. Gemini shadows lurk in the darkness of duplicity and amorality. It’s easy to fool or trick others, be clever and manipulate outcomes. But, ultimately, it defeats happiness and success. Embrace courage and be true to heart.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)
The cosmically charged, galactically generated Gemini lunar cycle comes to fruition in a winter solstice full Moon eclipse, shining rays of spiritual awakening upon us all. For Moonchildren, this opens a magical portal of angelic presence and possibility. Look to the heavens and see the stars. Find the best within and let it shine upon the world. You are blessed.

Leo (July 23-Aug.22)
With all planets – except the Moon – in collective signs, you may feel the magnitude of the masses weighing heavily upon your soul. Taking things personally is one of the Lion’s most poignantly beautiful flaws – you wish you could change the world with a wave of your wand – but, alas, you cannot. Courage and heart are gifts of power and grace. Shine on.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep.22)
You may feel the awesome power of the cosmos as galactic energies shift and align. Remain calm and virtuous, no matter what. Rising tides and stormy seas make for wild adventure and great challenge. This is when we see the mettle and the mustard. You are competent, clever and capable. Stay on course and ride the wave. You shall emerge victorious.

Libra (Sep. 23-Oct.22)
The third of five last degree full Moons takes place on winter solstice, and it is also a lunar eclipse. Force fields shift, new pathways emerge and old networks dissolve. As you stand upon the brink of transformation, look deeply into y
our heart. What is most precious and alive? What injustice or causes evoke the most passion? Listen to what you feel and follow its wisdom.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22)
Planet Venus returns to the degree where it stationed retrograde in early October – 13º Scorpio – as the Sun and Moon exactly oppose each other in a total lunar eclipse. This portends a major breakthrough and release of fear and doubt. You are being awarded the great good fortune of new hope, unlimited possibility and unbounded freedom. Embrace it.

Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 20)
The shadow of Sagittarius is arrogance, fanaticism and overindulgence, while its glimmering, shimmering light emanates from truth and knowledge, exploration and discovery. The time has come for higher-self living and being. Tap into spirit and rise above your life. See the bigger picture and observe the possibilities. Be your best, do what you can.

Capricorn (Dec. 21-Jan. 19)
You may feel strongly attracted to something or someone as galactic magnetism pulls you toward paths of destiny. Awaken to the power of truth and follow your heart. Focus on the basic goodness in yourself and others as you look for positive solutions to old problems. Foresight, creative intelligence and the perception of patterns are allies. Break out!

Aquarius (Jan. 19-Feb. 18)
Angels and demons gather in real and virtual worlds as planets align and gateways open. Illumination and balance are characteristic mandates of lunar fruition, while integration and assimilation are the results. The solstice lunar eclipse asks for spiritual cleansing and physical action. Surround yourself with the best of influences, act wisely and live well.

Pisces (Feb. 18-Mar. 20)
Another big lunar fruition for the Fish manifests in the year’s last lunar eclipse. Taking place in late Gemini/Sag, with key planetary players in late Pisces, it’s one that reverberates great power and potential for awakening and change. Look for patterns and identify denial. Truth and honesty are allies in the battle of spirit. Maintain compassion and exercise strength.
