This is the "Care and feeding of a New World Age" report for Gregorian date of May 22nd 2014 for 1 - Caban "kah-ban" or Earth in the Mayan Tzolkin calendar, with the Gemini New Moon, Venus moving into Taurus, and Mercury moving into Cancer.
May 22nd 2014 for 1 - Caban "kah-ban" or Earth carries the themes of natural rhythms, synchronizing the heart with Mother Earth, inspiration, the powers of creation, earthquakes, ancient wisdom, and flowing with the natural order. The Maya believed that the same energy that is the soul of the heart also resides in the Earth. The day symbol for earth also represents the interconnectedness of our emotions and the Earth’s emotions. Ian Lungold wrote “Sometimes Earth’s delicate sensitivities are upset resulting in quakes of emotion even the display of volcanic temper.” Neurophysicists have discovered that our hearts radiate the body’s strongest electromagnetic frequency in a torus field. This field is holographic and arcs out and returns along the axis of the heart and extends from the pelvic floor to the crown of the head. The Earth is also the center of a holographic electromagnetic torus field, as is the solar system and the galaxy. It's interesting to note that because of their holographic nature, there is the belief that there is only one universal torus field, which means our hearts are connected to the Earth, the solar system, the galaxy, and ultimately the universe. It’s fractal, where we don’t have a part, but the whole represented in each of us. These thirteen days are best used to change our patterns to be more heart centered and in balance with our Earth Mother.
Since we begin a new Gregorian month during this trecena, I thought I'd discuss the metaphysics of the upcoming month. June is the sixth month and with the digits for 2014, when added together we get 13, then we add 1 + 3 to tell us that this is a thirteen/four month in numerology. Basic numerology reduces numbers to one through nine, so when we think about that arc the 4 represents a time which brings integration of the creative energy from May, as we experience June's events and complete what was begun over the past three months. The four month is about organization, and planning as we move towards the peak of the cycle during the five month of July. With Mars now direct we have more energy for this final push to reach the summit where we will be able to see the back side of the 9 month cycle. Mercury retrograde will have us reviewing information before the final ascent, so we can move to the next level of manifestation. The thirteen/four combination is represented by the Death/Emperor tarot cards which is about our releasing the unnecessary and obstacles to moving forward on our paths to ultimately empower others through our example of selfless and enlightened leadership. The Death card in the Tarot could be described by this quote from Mahatma Gandhi "Birth and death are not two different states, but they are different aspects of the same state". John Heider describes the Emperor energetic in the Tao of Leadership "Enlightened leadership is service, not selfishness. The leader grows more and lasts longer by placing the well-being of all above the well-being of self alone." So this June we are engaged in letting go of baggage and completing tasks so our load is lighter, and leading by example to empower others through service, as we plan and organize to reach July's summit representing breakthrough, freedom and change as the five month in numerology.
Before I get into the daily energy for 1 - Caban "kah-ban" or Earth, on the 22nd all the planets appear to be moving forward from our vantage point on Earth except Saturn and Pluto which appear to move retrograde or in reverse motion. 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 22nd 2014 for 1 - Caban "kah-ban" or Earth: unity experienced through gratitude for Mother Earth, while the Pisces harmonizes with Pluto and finds support from Jupiter and Saturn, which brings a day that moves from experiencing deep emotions on a profound level to later having feelings of inner and outer equanimity, and finally having a sober realistic view of life. The 23rd is 2 - Etznab "etz-nob" or Flint: duality experienced through being introspective, while the moon is challenged by Mercury and in harmony with the Sun which moves from folks being critical in their communications particularly with the people they have intimate relationships with, to later feeling balance between our inner and outer worlds. May 24th is 3 - Cauac "cow-ack" or Storm: taking action through recognizing the gifts in adversity, while Jupiter trines Saturn which is a beneficial gathering of two powerhouses. Jupiter is exalted in Cancer as it finds comfort and expands to meet the emotional needs of Cancer, and Saturn in Scorpio is in mutual reception with Pluto in Capricorn. This is very positive. With Jupiter in the mix this may be the time that those experiences yield a payoff from working on creative and transformative projects. This may feel like an oasis in the expansive desert of the Uranus Pluto squares. Drink deeply at this time, enjoy the gifts, prepare your camel for the long journey ahead, Jupiter brings the gifts to renew our bodies, minds, and inspiration. With Jupiter we can see the whole and Saturn allows us to also see the details, truly a time that we can see the forest and the trees. A great time to expand a business, start a new one or branch out into a new area. This alignment has been in orb since last summer, which would explain how the stock market has remained so buoyant. Also on the 24th the Aries Moon opposed Mars, is challenged by Pluto and Jupiter, and merges with Uranus, which bring emotions shifting from influences people to be more excitable and irritable which can cause problems in our personal lives, to having the compulsion to act in ways that may not be good for us in the long run, then later people feeling impulsive and acting rashly, with moods changing quickly and unexpectedly, and finally benevolent and generous feelings for those in our immediate environment. The 25th is 4 - Ahau "ah-how" or Sun: stability through honoring the wisdom and memory of our ancestors, while the Moon in Aries merges with Venus and harmonizes with Mercury which moves from cheerful, warm, gregarious feelings and wanting to go out and socialize, to later being very social and having lots of conversations. May 26th is 5 - Imix "e-meesh" or Crocodile: empowerment through nurturing new beginnings, while Taurus Mon harmonizes with Neptune and finds support from Pluto which shifts from greater sensitivity to others' emotions with possible psychic impressions for those who are open, to later Pluto bringing out intense emotions and stimulating sensitivity, which also favors sexual relationships. The 27th is 6 - Ik "eek" or Wind: being in the flow through communication, while the Moon in Taurus is opposed by Saturn and in harmony with Jupiter which moves from feeling lonely and isolated, to later feeling in the flow and having a sense of wholeness. May 28th is 7 - Akbal "awk-bol" or Night: reflection through contemplating the stars, while we have the Gemini New Moon. New moons are times of new beginnings and in Gemini is about shifting and changing our thinking and communications. New Moons bring the opportunity to set an intension for manifestation on the following full moon. Look to the house of your astrology chart that contains 7 degrees Gemini to consider what area of your life is being activated by this new moon. For me that would be my twelfth house of secrets, sorrows, and self undoing, but is also the most mystical of all the houses and is linked to psychic powers, so I would set an intension related to using this energy. The Moon is merging with the Sun, challenged by Neptune, and supported by Mars, which makes daydreams and fantasies feeling more important than reality with Neptune, and with Mars has us feeling a little more confident than usual with the ability to assert ourselves in a positive manner. Overall this is a social new moon focused on birthing new information and communications. Also on the 28th Venus moves into Taurus which is beneficial because Taurus is more affectionate and sensual than Aries. Being an earth sign there is the realization about the damage a bad relationship can bring, so there is also a caution about entering into love too quickly. This could be a passionate energy that wants to please the significant other or lover. This is also about enjoying the arts and music along with fine food that nourishes body and soul over the next 3 plus weeks. Mercury sextiles Venus for the 2nd time on the 28th of May. 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 where 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. Also on the 28th we have the Sun square Neptune, which brings a low energy day which seems to take more energy to complete the normal daily tasks. If possible this would be a day to have a lighter schedule and more time for rest. Some will feel a little beaten down by this transit, so this is not a good day for work that requires courage or great self confidence. Don't get discouraged, this energy only lasts a day. The 29th is 8 - Kan "con" or Seed or Lizard: balance through planting seeds and making new connections, with Mercury entering into Cancer where, due to its retrograde cycle, it will spend a few weeks before returning to Gemini. While in the sign of the Crab, people will be reviewing their homes and families from the perspective of security. Also on the 29th the Gemini Moon in harmony with Uranus brings pleasant yet restless feelings craving emotional excitement to do something outside the daily routine pleasant yet restless feelings craving emotional excitement to do something outside the daily routine. May 30th is 9 - Chicchan "chee-chan" or Serpent: patience experienced through being flexible, while the Cancer Moon merges with Mercury and harmonizes with Venus which shifts from having positive energy for integrating our thoughts and moods, to later wanting to be with friends and the people we love. The 31st is 10 - Cimi "key-mee" or Transformation: manifestation through releasing what no longer serves us, while the Sun trines Mars which is positive for being ourselves and is wonderful energy for working alone on a project, not because we can't get along with others, but because we will not want to compromise our vision to accommodate the opinions of others. People feel physically vigorous when Mars positively interacts with the Sun, so channeling this energy into physical activity is recommended, not only for the health of the body but also for its uplifting effect on the mind and spirit. This is a good time to look at various projects begun in the past but not completed to assess where they are in development and our motivations in initiating them. What can be completed soon? If there have been recent new beginnings, are there imbalances that need adjusting? Looking at our own needs and criteria will help us make meaningful the work we engage in at this time. Also on the 31st the Moon in Cancer finds support from Neptune and Saturn, is challenged by Mars and Uranus, and is opposed by Pluto, brings a busy emotional day that moves from fantasies and daydreams distracting us from accomplishing routine tasks, to people feeling irritable which could lead to needless disputes, then brings deep emotions rising to the surface, and later people are likely to act hasty and jump to conclusions, and finally having a sober realistic view of life. June 1st is 11 - Manik "man-eek" or Deer: resolution through being of service to others, while the Cancer Moon merges with Jupiter which brings good feelings and generosity towards others. The 2nd is 12 - Lamat "la-maught" or Star or Rabbit: understanding through being grateful for abundant relationships, while the Leo Moon is challenged by Venus, and harmonizes with Mars and the Sun which moves from having pleasant energy to be with friends and loved ones, to later brings the desire to work independently from others, and finally feeling balance between our inner and outer worlds. June 3rd is 13 - Muluc "moo-luke" or Offering: movement to the next stage through appreciating creation, while the Moon in Leo finds support from Uranus and is challenged by Saturn which moves from pleasant yet restless energy that desires emotional excitement to later people feeling lonely or isolated.
So no matter what energies are affecting you during this 1 Earth 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.
