Rare Opportunity This Weekend!

This weekend there will be a rare opportunity for us to help give birth to a better future, both individually and collectively. The planets will be distributed across the sky in a beautiful and powerful set of patterns. On Sunday night, it will look like this:

If you look at the inner circle of the diagram, notice the bigger red triangles, which form two interlocking grand trines, together forming a Star of David. It’s not religious, but it is indicative of powerfully harmonious and opportunity-laden energies. Here is great ease and blessing.

Now, notice the green cross, enclosed within the larger blue box–these elements together are called a grand cross. This isn’t religious either, but it is indicative of powerfully discordant and opportunity-laden energies. Here is great conflict and tension.

Taken together, it is a potent combination of energies that we can participate in.

For those of you who aren’t used to looking at astrological charts, here is what three more normal sky charts look like–as opposed to tomorrow’s special one above:

You can see now how special this weekend’s alignment will be. It is like an energy portal opening up above you; now, you can more easily focus it all into manifestation. What do you do with that, you ask? Well, it’s a great opportunity to help create the change you want to see and be. Set aside some time to imagine, focus on, or meditate upon your vision of a better future. Draw it, type it, picture it, or just feel it. Later on Sunday would be optimal but anytime this weekend, even Monday, would be good.

Focus on physical manifestations and emotions, not on actions or ideas. In other words, what do you want to see in the world and how will it feel? (That is, how do you want to feel?) It’s alright to think of a better future for everyone, but this time make it about you. How will you feel in this better world? What will you see there? Hold this intention for a few minutes. Then, like something you love, let it go so that it can be free to take on the exact form it needs to, in combination with other peoples’ similar intentions. And feel your willingness to take steps to help it manifest. This is another way in which we can be the change we wish to see.

And as if if this weekend’s planetary alignment wasn’t looking like enough of an invitation from the Universe to energize our future, then this came along:


This big solar energy burst, coming at the Earth this weekend, will occur during the height of the Sun’s solar energy cycle, and it’s expected to create fabulous aurora displays far from the poles. What can we use it for at the inner levels of creation?

Again, this is a great opportunity that we don’t see very often. Take it.
