So a couple of years ago, I started following a website called The Oracle Report. It’s basically a daily report of the astrological dynamics taking place in the Universe and how it affects our world. It’s much more than the typical daily horoscope sites which I don’t even waste my time reading. The Oracle Report is an ongoing daily analysis and guide to navigating the energies of this time in history. I’m not saying I believe everything I read on the site and live my life according to it. There is a lot that is too deep and “out there” for my mind to comprehend. However, I do believe that there is some truth to it. If the moon’s gravitational pull can affect the ocean, causing the tide to rise and fall, how can it not affect us? It’s nice to have place to go that gives you some kind explanation of why things are happening. Why people are acting bat shit crazy for no reason or learning when we are more susceptible to certain energies that cause certain reactions. Or even to get a little bit of hope when I feel like everything is falling apart.
The whole reason I bring this up is because something in today’s report inspired me to come back here. It flickered something inside of me and made me think of one of my favorite songs of all time. I still remember the first time I heard it like it was yesterday. Here is a snippet from the report, go read more for yourself. Who knows, it may change the way you look at things.
Messages and information spread like wildfire today as the Sun nears completion of its transit through the brightness of Leo. Communication is highlighted, as we are inclined toward sharing our thoughts and feelings.
Some of what is shared may be surprising. The energy tends to reveal things, prompting breaking points. This serves to transform things from one way to another. The shape of things changes. This is especially true regarding the shape of things to come.
As the Moon moves to the Balsamic phase today, the Wisdom Goddess Bhairavi moves to complete the work of releasing pain and opening space for the lotus of our heart to blossom. She settles into our hearts and begins to breathe, pushing out pain and igniting embers of inspiration. She calls forth our inner hero. She works to ease emotional suffering, leave behind fears, assist in gaining confidence, and embracing the new. She shows how knowledge helps us go beyond the limitations of worldliness. She is the luminous, transcendent, cosmic goddess who satisfies the hungry heart. Bhairavi always clears space for Shodashi, the Wisdom Goddess who comes on duty for the Virgo cycle beginning Monday, to fulfill our highest desires, desires that go beyond this world. Shodashi is the goddess of the soul.
Balsamic Moon phase is the mystical Moon phase. It is the time when we mentally (and to some degree physically) pull back from the world and prepare for the next lunar cycle. We release what we do not want to carry with us into the next month (thoughts, feelings, situations, states of mind, etc.) The veils between the worlds are thinnest during Balsamic phase. Messages and information come to us through synchronicities. We understand the wisdom of the late, brilliant Mayan Calendar mystic Ian Lungold:
“Peace of mind – living by intuition – equals centeredness, equals certainty. Certainty comes from the recognition of patterns.”
Today, as the chaos and conflict of the Mars- Saturn conjunction continues, the parliament of wise owls will recognize the patterns as we sail into the mystic.
