Knowing Source Through the Human Senses
Attempting to perceive the vastness of creation and how we are connected to it can be almost impossible to grasp with the human mind. The element in our humanness that connects us to Source is our physical vessel — our body. It is the vehicle through which Source manifests on this plane and, through its senses and perceptions, we find our soul’s true calling.
When we feel what it is to be an infinite being in human form, it is immensely powerful and simultaneously extremely humbling. But how do we get there? And what impedes us from experiencing this direct connection to Source?
Planetary Alignments Reflecting Our Evolutionary Potential
The Moon in Virgo opposite Neptune and the Sun in Pisces, both squaring Mars in Scorpio
As the Moon forms an opposition to the Sun and Neptune, we are invited to seek our own liberation — from the inside. The statement “you are the universe” is key to this understanding. Knowing the truth of yourself and the universe can only come from yourself. Without this knowing, realizations are just ideas of the mind.
Just as the ocean cannot be held in a cup unless that cup is as large as the ocean itself, similarly, the cup of our awareness must be enlarged in order to comprehend the Source. And that is the very nature of our life on Earth; to know and experience Source through our human faculties. And, as we directly experience Source, the veils of illusion that separate and limit us fall away. We naturally become boundless and open up to the actual reality of who we are. From this place, we can truly begin to explore our infinite potential.
This lunar alignment asks us to discover which of our everyday philosophies limit our direct experience of Source and stop us from truly knowing ourselves as infinite beings in human form. But more than that, we are being called to examine those philosophies not with the mind that adopted and accepted those ideas but with the sensations of the body — the innate and intuitive knowing of our physical being.
Neptune in Pisces opposite Jupiter and the North Node in Virgo, both Squaring Saturn in Sagittarius
This alignment brings with it a new influx of energy. Saturn (structure) in Sagittarius (beliefs) is squaring the Nodes of the Moon, which represent our past and potential future. As a result, what we are experiencing here is an internal shift within ourselves regarding what we believe and consequently, what we choose, which directly affects the way we experience Source.
In essence, this alignment is showing you where your outdated philosophy is no longer supporting your new life’s direction. It invokes the clearing out and cleansing of past thoughts and inspirations, and letting them go. This process of inner cleansing will be felt either as feelings of loss or as an exciting liberation and an instinctual sense of new meaning.
Trust yourself. Feelings of loss and liberation are both felt directly through the body, and reflect the changing relationship between our soul instincts — Source — and our outer lives. Only you can know and experience those feelings from the inside, and while it may be a difficult process, it will free us from limiting ideals and structures, and bring us to a place from which we can begin to manifest the next Shift, creating new meaning and directions for humanity.
Mars in Scorpio trine the South Node and Chiron in Pisces, sextile Jupiter and the North Node in Virgo
Helping us along the way to seeing and seeking new meaningful experiences in our lives is the alignment of Mars, Chiron and Jupiter.
We all carry with us the deep pains of loss, separation and lives lived in duality. The journey of seeing through the many veils of illusion that cloud this 3D reality, and reconnecting directly with the oneness of our Source, is guided by that experience loss pain and suffering. This is natural process; to see light through the dark. We are also reminded of our empathy, love and compassion for each other in times of darkness.
With Chiron now in Pisces, we are also reminded of our collective karma and the illusions we hold of separation. This alignment serves as a reminded that our roles here on Earth are to remember our oneness, to hold it in our being, and then act accordingly — from the heart — anchoring that remembrance into this reality. We are here to journey to the centre of our human being, to explore our own undistorted and unconditioned truth, and walk our natural self-realized path of freedom and direct, uninhibited experience.
Venus and Mercury in Aquarius
These two inner-system planets are reflecting to us how we are breaking free from the shackles of the past and preparing for the next evolutionary cycle. This is a powerful alignment and, in combination with Saturn in Sagittarius, brings about a sense of objectivity as we begin to liberate ourselves from the past experiences that have brought us to this point.
Personally speaking, this is truly exciting! Even if it comes through as feelings of internal crisis, or feeling trapped, what we are experiencing here is a deep connection to your inner sense of liberation. If it doesn’t manifest immediately as liberation in your life, this energetic push will lead you to want to break free, informing the choices you make and how you approach the limiting beliefs and structures that stand between you and a direct experience of Source.
Full Moon Message: You Are The Universe!
In our most recent history, biblical and patriarchal doctrines have forced and programmed our minds with concepts, limitations and regulations that hinder and even prevent our overall direct knowing of Source. Through social expectations, customs, rules and laws, our history and our present day lives are filled with emotional imprinting that pervert and distort our true nature, and our innate and inherent knowing of that nature.
The means to find our way back home from these distortions is presented in this current astrological alignment. With today’s Full Moon in Virgo, we have a powerful opportunity to begin removing the layers of beliefs and systems that prevent us from experiences and feeling what we truly desire, and to energetically clear feelings of shame and guilt for our very nature that are engendered by the human-made institutions that prevent us from feeling — and living — our actual soul’s desires.
We cannot experience the Source of our creation unless we give into our natural humanness; our physicality, our senses, and our desires in this incarnation. Our most natural desires are formed from Source. They contain the Source. They are a direct expression of Source energy. They are where we find our happiness, joy, passion, motivation — and love. When we tap into those experiences, we feel it in every part of our being. Our senses become alive, our energy centres activate, and we become lost in that moment. Conversely, we inherently know when something doesn’t feel right, regardless of what we or others may think, or believe, or expect.
It is in those moments — when our inner calling reveals itself to us — that we find our truth; our unique connection to Source.
Will you hear the call?
By disconnecting from expectation and conditioning and learning to listen to the innate intelligence of our human bodies, we learn to know and fulfill our desires, and we naturally evolve. This process leads us to new avenues, which brings us to our true paths – to our own direct knowing of soul enlightenment.
