This is the "Care and feeding of a New World Age" report for Gregorian date of May 9th 2014 for 1 - Kan "con" or Seed or Lizard in the Mayan Tzolkin calendar, with the Scorpio Full Moon, Mars turning direct, and the Sun moving into Gemini.
May 9th 2014 for 1 - Kan "con" or Seed or Lizard carries the themes of corn, the net overflowing after the harvest, planting, ripeness, sexual maturity, abundance to manifest, connecting with others, the lizard of fertility and growth, germination, children and family. The seed in the Tzolkin has two primary representations: a huge net full of corn and the lizard, both are symbols of fertility. This thirteen day period is excellent for planting new intentions and other seeds.
Before I get into the daily energy for 1 - Kan "con" or Seed or Lizard, on the 9th all the planets appear to move forward from our vantage point on Earth except Mars, Saturn, and Pluto which appear to move retrograde or in reverse motion. Mars which turned retrograde on March 1st will turn direct May 19th. Mars is at the peak of its intensity during this trecena. Representing drive and aggression, is in Libra and appears be at a standstill from our perspective here on Earth. Mars is in its detriment in Libra because it is opposite Aries, the sign of Martian rulership, and is traditionally considered to have difficulty operating positively in Libra. Because of its retrograde cycle Mars will spend 8 months in the sign of the scales. Typically Mars spends two months in a sign so this placement for most of the year is uncomfortable and monotonous. Mars agitates and in Libra it's about relationships and can lead to social anger. This may cause us to see an increase in passive aggression. Mars is about drive and wanting to take action, but in Libra it's likely to be the drive to make someone else take action. Mars has been in Libra for several months and I've already seen folks competing for love. They are willing to fight for a partner. People are becoming aggressive in their quest for romantic love. Mars is also about sexuality, so retrograde Mars periods are contraindicated for beginning a satisfying sexual relationship. As much as Mars is unhappy in Libra, it's also very unhappy retrograde. This is a really difficult time to access our drive and aggressive energy. Saturn turned retrograde on March 2nd and turns direct on July 20th. Themes of Saturn in Scorpio are loss, depression, failure, fear, the shadow, betrayal, the stuff that goes deep. Superficial just won't cut it with Saturn in Scorpio. Saturn retrograde is a task master that demands we take responsibility to review the scorpionic themes such as motives, ethics, and intensions. If we have not been clear on these subjects we are likely to feel our burden is heavier than the load we had previously agreed to carry. Pluto represents death, completion, and in Capricorn, the breakdown of structures, to bring about transformation. Pluto in Capricorn is determined in exposing the darkness, destroying the old order, so that we can rise up like the Phoenix from the ashes to soar again. Capricorn is about large structures which includes banks, governments, corporations, and religions. This is a time of a cosmic course correction for the entire planet. It is the resistance to Pluto's lesson of letting go of the past, that brings tragedy and pain. Capricorn is about building and achievement and as an earth sign it's rooted in the material world. The goat climbing the highest mountains is its symbol. Pluto rules the underworld so look for events from underground such as earthquakes, volcanoes, and giant sink holes, and events involving tunnels or subways, and infrastructures in general, but also battles for underground resources, such as oil and fracking. Capricorn is also about the elderly and in the U.S. we have a political battle over social security, which was paid for by people's payroll deductions and has nothing to do with the national debt, but because our government borrowed from social security and has no way to pay it back, they want to dismantle this life line for our seniors.
Ok let's look at the daily vibrational energy for this trecena. May 9th 2014 for 1 - Kan "con" or Seed or Lizard: unity experienced through planting seeds and making new connections. Also on the 9th the Virgo Moon finds support from Pluto and the Sun, and harmonizes with Jupiter and Saturn which moves from feeling on a deeper more intense level under the influence of Pluto, to feeling in the flow and having a sense of wholeness with Jupiter, then feeling a sense of inner harmony which is mirrored in the outside world, and finally wanting to be alone in our thoughts and feelings. The 10th is 2 - Chicchan "chee-chan" or Serpent: duality experienced through being flexible, with the Sun opposing Saturn which makes us conscious of limitations in our lives, that have been imposed by others or circumstances. Just knowing that this energy is effecting us is helpful, also knowing that it only lasts a day. This may also be a difficult day for communication, just don't let it drag you down or overwhelm you. This day is about trying to find a way to balance our needs with our obligations. People may not feel effective psychologically which may make communications more difficult, as folks feel a conflict between the needs of others and self-expression, so it is important to find a balance between your needs and your obligations. Neither is meant to win over the other. If our obligations win over our self expression, we will feel restless and unfulfilled, but if we ignore our duties to do only as we choose, we will experience conflicts with others. Compromise is the best avenue for the 10th. This can also affect us psychologically with feelings of isolation and loneliness. Also on the 10th Moon in Virgo makes no angles and is void of course until moving into Libra, which does not favor major decisions or purchases, but is good to use for resting to assimilate this latest round of energy and experiences. May 11th is 3 - Cimi "key-mee" or Transformation: taking action through releasing what no longer serves us, while Venus opposed by Mars is positive for stimulating sexual and creative energies. If you're involved in a sexual relationship that is going well, this can bring a nice release of sexual energy and achieve gratification for both partners. If on the other hand there are problems with sexual expression in the relationship this might bring a point of conflict between the couple. If Mars' ego energy in not fulfilled sexually through Venus, the energy transmutes into energy for conflicts. This can come up as one person feels gratified, yet insensitive to their partners needs. A new relationship that starts under this transit tends to become a sexual outlet with little compatibility in other areas, so it's important not to make a commitment until the relationship proves itself. For people expressing themselves through creative outlets this is a good transit for completing work where you have a full latitude for self expression. Something else that is interesting about this Venus Mars opposition is that both planets are detrimented because they are in the sign opposite the sign of their rulership, but they are also in mutual reception because they are in each other's signs. Typically mutual reception means that the planets work together, but the way these two work together is arguing, aggression, passive aggression, being antisocial between the 10th and 17th. Expect people to challenge each other, and if challenged expect retribution particularly around the themes of fairness, love, and money. Also on the 11th Mercury squares Neptune which brings considerable confusion to communications and thinking. This will be a time to carefully choose words to avoid being misunderstood. In order to avoid confrontations, folks will be more likely to keep secrets and withhold controversial information. This is not recommended as it will only add to the confusion. This is a day to be careful in business dealings as people may be misrepresenting what they have to offer. Overall we should strive to keep thinking and communications clear, factual, and rooted in reality, otherwise this is likely to lead to unpleasant experiences. This is positive for studying anything religious, spiritual or mystical, just don't get lost down the rabbit hole. Also on the 11th the Libra Moon finds support Mercury, merges with Mars, is opposed by Venus and Uranus, and challenged by Pluto and Jupiter which moves from feeling in touch with our emotions and expressing them to others, to experiencing irritable moods and critical communications, while pleasant energy for enjoying sensual experiences and rich food with a caution against overindulgence, then having the compulsion to act in ways that may not be good for us in the long run, later folks are emotionally excitable and impulsive, and finally people having a pleasant sense of wellbeing. The 12th is 4 - Manik "man-eek" or Deer: stability through being of service to others, with Mercury trine Mars, which is good for mental work, with more energy than usual and the willingness to tackle difficult problems. People will be speaking their minds, not to get into fights, but to get their ideas out into the open. This transit brings confidence to express beliefs without fear of letting others know where you stand. This can also bring a certain boldness and innovativeness to plans made at this time. This might be a good day to be aware of others' forceful opinions, and avoid having a conflict when voicing our own opinions. This is good energy to take action that depends on impressing someone with your confidence and skills. You may want to ask for a raise under this transit. This is also good for public speaking because the usual anxiety that comes from standing up in front of a crowd is diminished. Plans made under this influence tend to be bold and innovative. Also on the 12th Moon in Libra makes no angles and is void of course until moving into Scorpio, which does not favor major decisions or purchases, but is good to use for resting to assimilate this latest round of energy and experiences. May 13th is 5 - Lamat "la-maught" or Star or Rabbit: empowerment through being grateful for abundant relationships, while the Scorpio Moon finding support from Neptune, and in harmonizes with Pluto which moves from fantasies and daydreams distracting us from accomplishing routine tasks, to later having deep emotions finding their way to the surface and felt on a profound level. The 14th is 6 - Muluc "moo-luke" or Offering: being in the flow through appreciating creation, with Venus square Pluto causing us to revisit the energy of the cardinal Grand Cross. It intensifies our emotional experiences and expression. It also brings a few days that are more challenging for relationships, as it brings secrets out into the open. This is a time of being drawn into powerful love experiences that change our consciousness, at least for a time. This may bring changes to a relationship, that our only recourse is to surrender and accommodate the shift, which can be difficult because we crave stability in relationships, and at times relationships are anything but stable. Probably the best option is to hold loosely to those we love for a few days before and after the 14th. This could also be a time when we might hear from or contemplate contacting a former lover as Venus dances with Pluto. Also on the 14th we have the Scorpio Full Moon at 23 degrees 55 minutes almost 24 degrees with the moon finding support from Jupiter, merging with Saturn, and opposed by the Sun, which has people feeling a pleasant sense of wellbeing, but also wanting to be alone in their thoughts and feelings. Full moons are a time of tension as the Sun in Taurus is about balancing practical and material concerns with emotional and spiritual realms in our life, represented by the Moon in Scorpio. On the 14th Jupiter trines Chiron bringing expansion to our powers for healing and having deeper realization and wisdom about our past wounds. May 15th is 7 - Oc "awk" or Dog: reflection through enjoying family and friends, while Mercury sextiles Venus and Uranus. This Mercury sextile Venus is interesting to me, because I usually think of alignments happening in odd numbers. 1,3,5, and rarely 7, but this alignment happens twice, with the second occurrence on the 28th. Basically Mercury in Gemini races along and makes a 60 degree angle with Venus, but as the month continues Mercury starts to slow down before it turns retrograde June 7th, and that allows Venus to catch up for a second sextile on the 28th. Mercury in harmony with Venus brings a light hearted energy to the day. This is nice for using our minds for leisure, like reading for pleasure, going to an art show or concert, playing a game you enjoy, or just talking with friends. This is a day when we get a break from the heavier concerns of life. This is also excellent for communicating our feelings to the people we love. So tell someone you love them today. Express your appreciation and gratitude and I suspect it will come back to you in kind. Also an excellent day to appreciate beauty, so you may want to put yourself in a beautiful environment whether it's a home, museum, or a day in the country. Mercury sextiles Uranus which brings the interaction between a planet and its higher octave planet. Here we have Mercury mind and Uranus higher mind, which can be very exciting as our personal awareness is expanded into the larger consciousness of the Universal Mind. It's very fast energy in thinking and communications which could lead to quantum leaps of faith or on the other side people getting overwhelmed by all the new information. A good day to look at an old problem with a new perspective. This will be a difficult day to follow anything routine, you may begin the day with one expectation of the direction that it will follow, only to find that you ended up somewhere completely different. Also on the 15th Venus conjuncts Uranus which brings a day that's full of surprises, and is wonderful for self expression in relationships, but we should be careful of unexpected disruptions in relationships if folks are feeling bored and routine. The energy merges the planet of money and love with the planet of the unexpected and independence, so the results could be shocking, but not necessarily bad. Someone who has been unable to free themselves from a horrible relationship may find the courage to leave. Someone may unexpectedly have a financial windfall or enter into an exciting new love connection, but we could also see the stock market or another financial system collapse. Basically with Uranus involved the results are unpredictable, and of course this is also being influenced by Jupiter and Pluto. Relationships begun under this type of transit are usually very exciting and unstable. Financial opportunities, likewise, could yield unexpected gains or losses. Also on the 15th the Sagittarius Moon is challenged by Neptune and stimulated by Mars which moves from bringing our dreams into the day's vibration, to later brings the desire to work independently from others. The 16th is 8 - Chuen "shoe-in" or Monkey: balance through creating something new, while the Moon in Sagittarius finds support from Uranus and Venus, and opposed by Mercury which begins with having the impulse to engage in activities that make us feel more alive, then enjoying social interactions with others, and later some people feeling a real conflict between feelings and reason and others having fruitful expressions of their deeper awareness either internally or with another. May 17th is 9 - Eb "eb" or Road: patience experienced through serving your community, with Mercury square Chiron which can bring insecurities and fears forward in our consciousness. This could have people talking about their wounds or healing. Also on the 17th the Capricorn Moon harmonizes with Neptune and challenged by Mars which moves from greater sensitivity to others' emotions with possible psychic impressions for those who are open, to later people feeling irritable which could lead to needless disputes. The 18th is 10 - Ben "ben" or Reed or Corn: manifestation through maintaining the home, while Venus square Jupiter activates the cardinal Grand Cross again. The energy of this square is usually agreeable, in that folks feel good and enjoy social interactions. A great day for doing something you enjoy, not so good for doing something you have to do, as it is low for self discipline. It's tough on dieters, because people may feel the urge to indulge in rich or sweet foods, with a caution about eating and drinking too much under this influence. This also applies to shopping as we will have a tendency to overspend on non essentials. Also on the 18th the Moon in Capricorn merges with Pluto, is challenged by Uranus and Venus, opposed by Jupiter, and in harmony with Saturn which moves from we have more intense moods rising to the surface from deep in our psyches, to people are likely to act hasty and jump to conclusions, then having pleasant energy to be with friends and loved ones, with feelings of generosity, later realistic expectations through being calm and reflective. May 19th is 11 - Ix "eesh" or Jaguar: resolution through enjoying nature, with Mars turning direct and as it builds momentum over the next week, we start to feel our fiery physical energy return. This shifts our actions in new directions. Mars will build up speed to exit Libra and enter its traditional ruling sign of Scorpio in July. Also on the 19th the Moon finds support from the Sun and Mars which moves from feeling a sense of inner harmony which is mirrored in the outside world to later brings the energy for asserting ourselves in a positive manner and standing our ground if necessary. The 20th is 12 - Men "men" or Eagle: understanding through seeing from a higher perspective, while the Sun enters Gemini which illuminates communication, along with Mercury moving through the sign of the twins, the energy gets very fast, highlighting intelligence and adaptability as information flows at an increased rate. Also on the 20th the Aquarius Moon in harmony with Uranus and Venus, challenged Saturn, and supported by Mercury, which moves from pleasant yet restless feelings craving emotional excitement to do something outside the daily routine, to people feeling lonely or isolated, then wanting to be with friends and the people we love, and finally being more in touch with our feelings and able to share them with others. May 21st is 13 - Cib "keeb" or Wisdom: movement to the next stage through introspection, meditation and forgiveness, while the Last Quarter Pisces Moon is challenged by the Sun and merges with Neptune which moves from encountering challenges to our daily routines, to later feelings of empathy for those around us, including the possibility of clairvoyance and telepathic experiences for those of us who are sensitive by nature.
So no matter what energies are affecting you during this 1 Seed trecena, take some time to be in the flow of the planet by being in nature, watching a sunrise or sunset, communing with the stars, being conscious of the moment through introspection, meditation or being with someone you love. Every day is a blessing no matter what dramas beckon to distract us. We are all giving the performance of a life time on this world stage, just take some time to observe the play as well as act your part. Remember you are a spiritual being having a human experience.
