Ganesha Remover of Obstacles

Today during Spiritual belly dance class, and after recording the Leo Venus Gate with Tashi and Joanna I thought about the Ganesha mantra.

Back in 2009 I posted about transiting Saturn opposing Uranus, and I correlated the Ganesha mantra to working consciously with them. After meditating about this I had a realization that Ganesha could be considered a Saturnian/Uranian God – he removes obstacles. Sometimes in surprising ways.

The mantra is a means to help break up the stagnation and fear Saturn can bring and to awaken the wild-card flow energy of Uranus.

With all the harsh energies on the planet, if we are not choosing actions that support the constant upgrade of energy we most likely will feel depressed, overwhelmed and heavy or we are in an active addiction covering it up.

As we navigate the

Mantras, conscious movement (I’m soooo grateful for Guru Jagat!! more about this later), staying hydrated (the best water I know is Kangen), eating well balanced nourishing meals, and surrounding ourselves with healthy high-quality relationships (with ourself and others) make navigating these times optimal. Without all that the lower heavy energies can take hold of us.

I’m not suggesting bypassing, I’m suggesting consciousness = evolution, and we are on the fast track now.

Ever notice that time is moving so fast??? well it’s not time that is moving so fast, it’s that consciousness has sped up. Especially since Pluto crossed the Galactic Center in 2009.

Mantras and the like help with our evolution.

Five-Pointed Star Venus Dance

In dedication to Venus and her culminating journey tomorrow, I post these photos from my Ancient Mary-Ancient Venus dance in 2009, performed on a white five-pointed star with white rose petals, an Excalibur sword amongst the backdrop of Angel’s painting of Mary, our altar to Mary and my natal astrological mandala, imbued with Mary, Saturn and Venus.

New Moon in Libra

Wow! can life get any faster?  The answer is YES!  With so many planets in the go mode, lots of Libra in opposition to Uranus, it’s extraordinarily intense, especially if you have early degree cardinal signs in your chart (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn).

Today’s glorious and much needed balancing New Moon begins in the early AM, when the moon meets up with the Sun at 4 degrees of Libra, the sign of the scales. The Sun/Moon pair squares Pluto and opposes Uranus–two big players in the cosmos–forming what is known as a T-square aspect in astrology.

Oppositions offer us the opportunity to find balance between two polarities (usually we spend time at one archetypal end or the other until we find a way to integrate the opposing energies), and the square brings forth the growing edge of conflict, rubbing us up against something or someone that irritates us.  These challenging aspects force evolution, whereas easier aspects, such as the trine and quintile offer us comfort and ease.

Libra is an air sign and is ruled by the planet Venus, thus communication and what we value in our lives in our one-on-one relationships is highlighted at this time, while simultaneously the bigger picture has our attention too due to the major influence the outer planets have on this New Moon.  Mercury, conjunct the Sun/Moon, further enhances the need for cooperation, communication, and the forging of quick connections.

With the Moon/Sun in direct aspect to Uranus and Pluto, the polarized energy between Uranus and the Sun/Moon offer us the opportunity to burn off a huge amount of karma in respect to our relationships (past and present), because they square the planet of shared intimate resources, shared sexual fluid, primal urges–the point of release in this t-square is Pluto.

Uranus and Venus have two very different functions.  Uranus wants freedom, liberation, and to express eccentricity while Venus wants stability, and to relate and bond.  The two together forge a unique twist on the traditional relationship, so this moon may bring a surprising twist to our relationships, bringing us into more honest and radical communication with our partners than we have had before, and most certainly the need to significantly change our relationships.

Uranus votes for change, Venus holds on, and Pluto forces the issues (the truth) to the surface, if they haven’t come up already.  This is especially true for folks with planets/angles in early degree cardinal signs.  It will be interesting to see how this new moon plays out in the bigger socio/economic/political arena.  From everything I have read, when Uranus goes direct in December, some big corporate deceits will be brought out.

The Part of Fortune, Venus, Saturn, and Juno are all also in Libra, conjunct carrying the torch of balance, bringing with them the call for serious stabilization and benefits (even marriage) when the essence of beauty, fairness, equality and justice is applied in all our affairs.

This new moon is an excellent time for meeting new people, building new relationships, meeting a partner and for ending a relationship.  If the later is the case, hopefully it ends in balance rather than extremes.

These Libra planets bring grace into the heavens, after so much upheaval in the world.  May they bless and benefit you all.

with love…
