Contributing Writers for Wake Up World
In the aftermath of the blood moon tetrad and all the anticipation around possible global events, we are still here. But as the dust settles, and life goes on as usual, we are finding it ever more difficult to tolerate the outdated life and structures around us.
Massive internal shifts have taken place within each and every one of us: we are not the same as we were two years ago. Our paths have now been illuminated, and the next step in this beautiful cosmic journey is to step into devotional service to our ourselves and others. This New Moon in Libra brings with it themes of acceptance and integration, and the urge to create balance between our inner and our outer worlds.
Planetary Alignments reflecting Potential Evolution
Pluto in Capricorn Trine Mars and Venus in Virgo
This empowering trine is very helpful to our collective evolution – the solid, earthy relationship between Capricorn and Virgo helps us establish strong, sure footed foundations from which we can seek a new direction.
At this point in our collective evolution, internal structures have faltered and we are now faced with the need to create new forms, conditions and goals. Doing so will naturally then bring about a new organic direction. The trine has a powerful message for all of us who are seeking to build a new manifested reality. Use these energies to reflect deeply during the New Moon period on what your new direction should be. Once clarity comes to you, seek through the energy of Virgo to establish a routine which brings about that new direction.
Saturn in Sagittarius Trine the South Node in Aries and Sextile the North Node in Libra
Saturn’s movement into Sagittarius now creates these aspects to the North/South Nodes of the moon. Our collective reality (Saturn) is shifting from the instinctual change sought by the cardinal energy of the Aries/Libra axis to the expansive growth energy of the mutable Virgo/Pisces axis. This is a big deal for us. We have become comfortable focusing on change, since we have been dealing with the new direction for a long time now; however, we have now reached the next level of this shift. It is no longer about deconditioning and revaluating (change) but about anchoring in our new insights and values through inspired action (growth). It’s time to create this next step. This is exciting!

Here the theme of healing duality continues, and it is our job to find and establish new worldly definitions which reflect our new expanded view of the universe and our consciousness connection to it. This alignment is the key to how we can start laying down these new paradigms in ways which have actual concrete effects on our lives and those of others. With a collective effort we can then work further on our collective awakening experience. It’s from this highly spiritual aspect that we can draw inspiration, and awareness of the source. However, these potent energies can bring with them a feeling of being lost in the void. Be mindful of this within your own consciousness. When we tend to space out from our reality, it’s usually a sign that we are out of alignment with our heart’s desires. If we seek love from external sources, we can then feel abandoned when life doesn’t respond to us the way we want it to. This is where we learn that the nature of reality directly responds to the way we are inwardly feeling. This aspect helps us to understand reality versus illusion regarding both our inner and outer relationships.
Sun and Moon (New Moon) in Libra Opposite Uranus in Aries
As the sun and moon now move along into the sign Libra, we begin to experience the core evolutionary archetypes of balance. Indeed, balance is now set to play a big role in our collective awakening experience. Jupiter’s recent transit through Leo (July 2014 to August 2015) helped us to embrace the joy of being alive; now a new step on the evolutionary path is emerging for us. We must learn to take this joy and this heart centered knowing and expose it to a diversity of other people’s dreams. As we do so, we will learn to compare and contrast different perspectives, and crucially, we will learn how conscious communication can manifest our collective dreams. Your personal direction and that of others will become aligned.
New relationships with others arise, and from these, new and unexplored pathways beckon. Personal self-discovery is key with this alignment.
This Libra new moon also brings with it awareness around how our collective definitions and values have changed over the last two years. For example, we have understood the issues around flouride based toothpastes and we have turned increasingly to coconut oils. Our dietary values have changed, and so have our economic and social ones, as we have become aware of an excess of consumerism in the world. This new awareness has naturally played a big role in how we now interact, socially, with those who have not yet made the shift. Social dynamics have become trickier at times, and we may feel alone even at family gatherings. The new moon’s opposition to Uranus in Aries encourages us to keep following our instincts for change, and to act upon what we feel to be right as we tread this new evolutionary path.
New Moon Message
We are programmed from early childhood to prepare for the future and we grow up with the notion that we getting ready for life. We spend our childhood in school to be ready for adulthood, then our adult life working, waiting for the weekends, saving for the future and investing in our pensions. Even in our daily activities, we often find ourselves striving to be somewhere else other than where we are. We are conditioned to wait for life.
This thinking has become so intrinsic to our nature that it can still affect the way we choose to live our lives as awakened, sovereign beings. I am sure many of you recognise the feeling of not being ready to take charge of your life yet. Of needing a little more time, a little more confidence or understanding. Of waiting for the pieces to fall into place or for the right circumstances to present themselves.
This is a wakeup call to everyone who recognizes themselves in the above statements. You will not become “ready” by waiting. Your life is happening NOW, and the world is ready to receive your special gifts and talents. The world needs you to show up! You might not have mastered your skills fully. You may need to learn and adjust along the way. This is a new direction so it is natural to perfect things through direct experience of trial and error. This is how we learn! Not by waiting but by doing!
Look at what you are beyond your appearance. You are a perfectly constructed co-creator of the universe! Think about that. You are the universe experiencing itself, through yourself, as yourself. You were born ready for that.
So we are now urging you to take a deep breath… to walk yourself to the edge of your comfort zone… and leap! Watch how you fly!
Be the change!
