This is the "Care and feeding of a New World Age" report for Gregorian date of June 30th 2014 for 1 - Cib "keeb" or Wisdom in the Mayan Tzolkin calendar, with Mercury turning direct in Gemini, and the Capricorn Full Moon.
June 30th 2014 for 1 - Cib "keeb" or Wisdom carries the themes of the old ones, ancient memories that wait at the sacred sites, protection of universal consciousness, inner strength, shared teachings, the Elders, clearing away the past like the vulture, forgiveness, making amends, great sages and keepers of the ancient records. Represented by the Vulture or Owl, this is a time of releasing the past through forgiveness which creates a grateful heart space to receive the wisdom of the ancients. The next thirteen days is about surrendering something that no longer serves to make room for transformation. This is a time to forgive others and ask for forgiveness not only from individuals, but also from our mother Earth.
Since we begin a new Gregorian month during this trecena, I thought I'd discuss the metaphysics of the upcoming month. July is the seventh month and with the digits for 2014, when added together we get 14, then we add 1 + 4 to tell us that this is a fourteen/five month in numerology. Basic numerology reduces numbers to one through nine, so when we think about that arc the 5 represents a time of major shifts and breakthroughs as the 5 represents the peak of the numerological cycle such as reaching the top of the mountain and having a view of the upcoming descent down the other side of the 9 month cycle. Mars in Libra is moving forward with momentum, and Mercury turns direct on the 1st also supports the implementation of a new direction based on the information and experiences we were exposed to in June. A five month brings new opportunities, options, and choices through our creativity. The fourteen/five combination are represented by the Art/Temperance and the Hierophant in the Tarot cards, which is about integration of opposites to discover the ground that transcends them both, which we bring forth as teachers, who learn from what we share and the experience of those who honor us by implementing our guidance in their lives. This Ken Wilbur quote from No Boundaries provides a description of the Art/Temperance archetype, "The point is...to unify and harmonizes opposites both positive and negative, by discovering the ground that transcends them both." From the Course in Miracles comes this quote for the Hierophant, "'As you teach so will you learn.' If that is true, and it is true indeed, don't forget that what you teach is teaching you." So July represents a breakthrough on many levels including integrating opposites and learning through teaching.
Before I get into the daily energy for 1 - Cib "keeb" or Wisdom, on the 30th all the planets appear to be moving forward from our vantage point on Earth except Mercury, Saturn, Chiron, Neptune, and Pluto which appear to move retrograde or in reverse motion. Mercury turned retrograde on June 7th and will turn direct on July 1st, so the beginning of this trecena would be a good time to avoid signing contracts or other legal papers, making any major purchases, or even taking a new job. If you can postpone these types of activities the terms will be much clearer after Mercury is moving direct. Mercury retrogrades force us to slow down and pay more attention to our lives by making us focus on the details of our daily experience. 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. 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. Chiron retrograde in Pisces is about releasing stuck emotional energy, so that we can return to the natural flow of life. Neptune turned retrograde on June 9th. Neptune in its own sign of Pisces is seeking transcendence through spiritual experiences. This will be a time to use spiritual practices to keep us grounded as we expand our intuition and consciousness. This will be important energy to nurture as we are in the middle of four years of the challenging Uranus Pluto squares that have been affecting us as a collective and as individuals. 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.
Ok let's look at the daily vibrational energy for this trecena. June 30th 2014 for 1 - Cib "keeb" or Wisdom: unity experienced through introspection, meditation and forgiveness in the Mayan Tzolkin calendar, with the Leo Moon finding support from Uranus, challenged by Saturn, and stimulated by Mars which moves from having the impulse to engage in activities that make us feel more alive, then people feeling lonely or isolated, and finally brings the desire to work independently from others. July 1st is 2 - Caban "kah-ban" or Earth: duality experienced through gratitude for Mother Earth, while Mercury turns direct at 24 degrees Gemini, which will bring forward the information that brings a new sense of our course correction to heading in the right direction. This is an important shift beginning the numerological five month of breakthrough and freedom from the past. As Mercury begins to move forward from the point it crossed on May 23rd, when we began to collect information regarding a major change that can be implemented as Mercury begins moving forward. The time period from when Mercury turned retrograde on June 7th until July 1st has given us events to further illustrate the changes being called for. It will take a few days for Mercury to build momentum but the seeds for course correction have been planted. Also on the 1st the Moon in Leo harmonizes with Mercury which brings lots of chatting with friends, neighbors, coworkers... being very social and having lots of conversations. July 2nd is 3 - Etznab "etz-nob" or Flint: taking action through being introspective, with the Virgo Moon opposed by Neptune, in harmony with the Sun, challenged by Venus, and finding support from Pluto which moves from feeling sensitive emotionally but confused regarding the accuracy of what's being felt, to feeling balance between our inner and outer worlds, then having pleasant energy to be with friends and loved ones, and finally feeling on a deeper more intense level under the influence of Pluto. The 3rd is 4 - Cauac "cow-ack" or Storm: stability through recognizing the gifts in adversity, with the Moon in Virgo in harmony with Saturn, and challenged by Mercury which shifts from wanting to be alone in our thoughts and feelings to later folks being critical in their communications particularly with the people they have intimate relationships with. July 4th is 5 - "ah-how" : empowerment through honoring the wisdom and memory of our ancestors, while the Sun opposing Pluto colors the day's energy which can cause rather intense encounters with others or circumstances that expose something that was hidden or that we chose to ignore, for the purpose of transforming an old worn out pattern that can no longer serve us. This indicates power struggles with others, particularly people in authority. This day really has the hallmark of relationship difficulties that could possibly lead to breakups. You may want to keep that in mind rather than trying to repair the damage of today's words or deeds later on down the road. Overall we are talking about transformation on some level as a shift is required away from doing things the same old way. The Cancer Capricorn axis will bring tension related to balancing home and family with career and responsibilities in the outer world. This shift requires a major transformation where outer power reflects inner power, where transparency and integrity are key. This will be particularly important in the United States as its national solar return occurs at this time. The USA solar return chart for 2014 has Pluto in a tight opposition to the United States natal Sun on the nation's birthday. Just like doing a solar return reading for a person, we can look at a nation's solar return chart to forecast the themes of events for that nation for the upcoming year. I used Ebenezer Sibly's chart from the signing of the Declaration of Independence, which is July 4th, 1776 Philadelphia Pennsylvania at 5:10 pm. The Sun in Cancer, is at 13 degrees 19 minutes tightly opposing the solar return Pluto and squaring Uranus... can you say chaos and darkness? And although Jupiter in Cancer has moved out of orb with the Cardinal Grand Cross that we heard so much about in April, the Sun in Cancer is filling that gap. But what I find most interesting is the two Yods or Fingers of Fate from the Solar Return Venus sextile Uranus and both planets inconjunct or at a very uncomfortable 150 degrees pointing at Saturn in Scorpio and Saturn sextile Pluto in Capricorn and both planets inconjunct pointing at Venus. The solar return in Washington DC has 14 degrees Cancer ascendant with the Sun conjunct the ascendant from the 12th house and Pluto conjunct the descendent from the 6th house. So what does it all mean? The Sun, Mercury, and Venus in the twelfth house, brings a great deal of energy to the USA's face in the world from a place of self undoing, sorrows and secret enemies, opposed by Pluto which is transforming the themes of health and service in the United States solar return chart. Pluto in Capricorn which is death and rebirth of structures that have out grown their usefulness... particularly governments, corporations, and religions. Saturn is the pointing finger of one of the yods, in the fifth is about limitation to the country's creativity to address unexpected money issues, with Venus and Uranus holding the handles of the dosing rod that points at Saturn. Then we have Saturn's limitation and Pluto transformation through death and rebirth pointing the other yod at Venus, which rules money as well as relationships, in the 12th house indicating that the USA will experience a financial self undoing over the next year due to secrets that are exposed and brought to the surface with Pluto's involvement. Uranus in Aries is opposed by the Moon and Mars in Libra and square from the opposition of the Sun and Pluto. With Uranus in the tenth, I think that the United States government and people are going to experience a major upheaval as to how they are seen around the globe. Also on the 4th the Virgo Moon harmonizes with Jupiter which brings a feeling of being in the flow and having a sense of wholeness. The 5th is 6 - Imix "e-meesh" or Crocodile: being in the flow through nurturing new beginnings, with the First Quarter Libra Moon challenged by Pluto and the Sun, finding support from Venus, opposed by Uranus, and merges with Mars which moves from having the compulsion to act in ways that may not be good for us in the long run, to encountering challenges to our daily routines, then enjoying social interactions with others, later folks are emotionally excitable and impulsive, and finally experiencing irritable moods and critical communications. July 6th is 7 - Ik "eek" or Wind: reflection through communication, with the Moon in Libra supported by Mercury and challenged by Jupiter which shifts from feeling in touch with our emotions and expressing them to others to later benevolent and generous feelings for those in our immediate environment. The 7th is 8 Akbal "awk-bol" or Night: balance through contemplating the stars, with Venus sextile Uranus, the day seeks excitement outside of our daily routines, stimulates new interactions with people who can fascinate us, but be aware romance begun under this transit may not be long lasting even though at this time they seem pleasantly electrifying. Great energy for a fling with friends or a party. Folks will be more freedom seeking in their relationships, during this transit that does not favor being clingy, possessive, or jealous. Allow loved ones more leeway and flexibility, and this could greatly broaden your understanding of partners and friends, and in doing so new insights into yourself. Also on the 7th the Scorpio Moon finds support from Neptune and the Sun, harmonizes with Pluto, and merges with Saturn which brings energy that moves from fantasies and daydreams distracting us from accomplishing routine tasks, to experiencing deep emotions on a profound level, 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. July 8th is 9 - Kan "con" or Seed or Lizard: patience experienced through planting seeds and making new connections, while the Sun squares Uranus and trines Saturn. The Sun squares Uranus continuing to activate the t-square of opposing Pluto while directing that opposition toward Uranus. This can bring sudden upsets or behavior that is upsetting to others. This is a day to expect the unexpected such as cars breaking down unexpectedly, a sudden ending of a relationship, an argument that begins "out of nowhere", or other disruptive event that could not be foreseen. Also on the 8th the Sun trines Saturn. When the Sun is supported by Saturn, we have a great opportunity to learn something about ourselves through our relationship with, and our effect on our environments. It brings out the close relationship between who we are and what we do. Also on the 8th the Moon in Scorpio finds support from Jupiter which brings feelings of inner and outer equanimity. The 9th is 10 - Chicchan "chee-chan" or Serpent: manifestation through being flexible, with the Sagittarius Moon is challenged by Neptune in which daydreams and fantasies feel more important than reality. July 10th is 11 - Cimi "key-mee" or Transformation: resolution through releasing what no longer serves us, with the Moon in Sagittarius supported by Uranus, opposed by Venus and Mercury, and stimulated by Mars which shifts from having a desire for emotional excitement to engage in activities outside our daily routine, to pleasant energy for enjoying sensual experiences and rich food with a caution against overindulgence, then brings the desire to work independently from others, and finally some feeling a real conflict between feelings and reason and others having fruitful expressions of their deeper awareness either internally or with another. The 11th is 12 - man-eek" : understanding through being of service to others, with the Capricorn Moon harmonizing with Neptune and merging with Pluto which moves from greater sensitivity to others' emotions with possible psychic impressions for those who are open to later having more intense moods rising to the surface from deep in our psyches. July 12th is 13 - Lamat "la-maught" or Star or Rabbit: movement to the next stage through being grateful for abundant relationships, while we have the Capricorn Full Moon at 20 degrees opposing the Cancer Sun and Jupiter in late Cancer, being challenged by Uranus and Mars, and in harmony with Saturn. Full moons are a time of tension as the Sun in Cancer is about balancing security, home and family, with the Moon in Capricorn, representing work and productivity. The day is a mix of the high level of energy that we have in a full moon, with the themes of folks acting hasty and jumping to conclusions that may not be correct, wanting to be alone in our thoughts and feelings, people feeling irritable which could lead to needless disputes, and with feelings of generosity in the Jupiter opposition.
So no matter what energies are affecting you during this 1 Wisdom 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.
