This is the "Care and feeding of a New World Age" report for Gregorian date of April 25th and 1 – Men "men" or Eagle in the Mayan Tzolkin calendar, with Mercury moving into Gemini, the Scorpio Full Moon, and Venus moving into Cancer.
April 25th and 1 – Men "men" or Eagle which carries the themes of higher perspective, keen vision, free spirit, messenger of faith and knowledge, patience, wings of the spirit, value, manifestation of fertility, knowing the details, dualities of the Sun and Moon, the budding youth and the wise elder, male and female, the soaring eagle and the fallen eagle, the messenger between heaven and earth. It also represents luck, hope, liberty, trust, good fortune and good relationships. Eagles have the quality of being able to observe movements from a great distance. The 1 Eagle thirteen day period could be used to gain greater perspectives about the events in our lives through creating some distance between the observer and the observed.
Since we begin a new Gregorian month during this trecena, I thought I'd discuss the metaphysics of the upcoming month. May is the fifth month and with the digits for 2015, 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 April, as we experience May'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 June. With Jupiter now direct we have more opportunity 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 May 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 June's summit representing breakthrough, freedom and change as the five month in numerology.
Before I get into the daily energy for 1 – Men "men" or Eagle, on the 25th all the planets appear to be moving forward from our vantage point on Earth, except Saturn and Pluto which appears to move retrograde or in reverse motion. Remember the themes of retrograde planets are the review the past, re-evaluate, reminisce and we can see these themes being played out. Saturn retrograde reviews our commitments, plans, what we do for work, and structures of our lives. This one is a little more complicated than most because Saturn begins its apparent reverse movement in Sagittarius, but eventually backs into the final degrees of Scorpio. Saturn retrograde is a task master that demands we take responsibility to review, our beliefs while in Sagittarius and our ethics while in Scorpio. When Pluto, the planet of transformation through a death and rebirth cycle, is retrograde, which is about reviewing the past, and releasing anything from the past that is a burden to our new path. 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. We cannot continue to harm Mother Earth for the economic gain of a few. It is the resistance to Pluto's lesson of letting go of the past, that brings tragedy and pain.
Ok let's look at the daily vibrational energy for this trecena.
April 25th for 1 – Men "men" or Eagle: unity experienced through seeing from a higher perspective in the Mayan Tzolkin calendar, while the first quarter moon in Leo finds support from Saturn and is challenged by the Sun which shifts from having a sober realistic view of life to later encountering challenges to our daily routines.
The 26th is 2 – Cib "keeb" or Wisdom: duality experienced through introspection, meditation and forgiveness, with Venus sextile Uranus, which for a day people will seek excitement outside of our daily routines, stimulates new interactions with people who can fascinate us, but be aware romances 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 26th the Leo Moon merges with Jupiter, finds support from Uranus, harmonizes with Venus, and is challenged by Mars. The emotional energy of the day moves from good feelings and generosity towards others, to having the impulse to engage in activities that make us feel more alive, followed by wanting to be with friends and the people we love, and finally people feeling irritable which could lead to needless disputes.
April 27th is 3 - Caban "kah-ban" or Earth: taking action through gratitude for Mother Earth, while the Sun sextiles Neptune which lowers the demands of our egos allowing us to sense other people's energy and circumstances and makes us more willing to help out. This could be positive for fund raising for a charitable organization. This also encourages spiritual and mystical knowledge and experiences through spending time alone in a meditative state, particularly given that energy for physical activities will be lowered. Also on the 27th the Moon in Leo is challenged by Mercury which has folks being critical in their communications particularly with the people they have intimate relationships with.
The 28th is 4 - Etznab "etz-nob" or Flint: stability through being introspective, while Mars sextiles Chiron bringing action to our healing processes and energy for letting go of old wounds. Also on the 28th the Virgo Moon is challenged by Saturn, supported by the Sun, and opposed by Neptune, which shifts from people feeling lonely or isolated, to feeling a sense of inner harmony which is mirrored in the outside world, and finally feeling sensitive emotionally but confused regarding the accuracy of what's being felt.
April 29th is 5 - Cauac "cow-ack" or Storm: empowerment through recognizing the gifts in adversity, while Venus square Chiron makes our past wounds more conscious through our current interactions in our personal relationships, to allow healing of a pattern that we may have forgotten. Also on the 29th the Moon in Virgo finds support from Pluto and Mars, and is challenged by Venus, which moves from feeling on a deeper more intense level under the influence of Pluto, to later pleasant energy for being with the others we want to know better, and finally feeling a little more confident than usual with the ability to assert ourselves in a positive manner.
The 30th is 6 - Ahau "ah-how" or Sun: being in the flow through honoring the wisdom and memory of our ancestors, while Mercury enters Gemini which is beneficial because Mercury rules Gemini. This is very fast energy that will speed up communications and interest in a wider variety of topics until July 8th when Mercury eventually moves into Cancer, due to Mercury turning retrograde on May 18th. While in Gemini Mercury brings spontaneity to socialization in life. Also on the 30th the Moon finds support from Mercury and harmonizes with Saturn, which shifts from being more in touch with our feelings and able to share them with others, to later having realistic expectations through being calm and reflective.
May 1st is 7 - Imix "e-meesh" or Crocodile: reflection through nurturing new beginnings, while the Libra Moon harmonizes with Jupiter, is challenged by Pluto, and opposed by Uranus which moves from feeling in the flow and having a sense of wholeness, to later having the compulsion to act in ways that may not be good for us in the long run, and finally folks are emotionally excitable and impulsive.
May 3rd is 9 - Akbal "awk-bol" or Night: patience experienced through contemplating the stars, while we have the Scorpio Full Moon at 13 degrees 23 minutes with the Moon finding support from Neptune, and opposed by the Sun. Neptune’s influence on the lunation brings up our innermost subconscious fantasies and daydreams confusing reality, which may not be great for accomplishing much work. 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. Also on the 3rd Mercury is opposed by Saturn which brings about serious thoughts concerning our relationship to the world. We will want to consider how we can meet our practical needs. This transit may have us feeling isolated as we are more inclined to look with a critical eye at our personal relationships. This is not the time to act on those thoughts because our thinking gets distorted by this transit. What we consider our troubles may seem significant but over time may diminish as this transit moves on. Our thoughts benefit from positive thinking to overcome the pessimistic energy. This may also have us thinking about separating from a loved one or saying goodbye to a relationship, but wait to act because Mercury opposed by Saturn can really distort our perspective. If you can control negative thinking, you can use this energy to plan changes, as you will have a more critical eye for what is not working. This also brings discipline for heavy mental work, but remember to take breaks so your mood doesn't get pulled down in the process. Older people, who you respect, would be good to talk to if you need to get something off your chest.
The 4th is 10 - Kan "con" or Seed or Lizard: manifestation through planting seeds and making new connections, while the Sun squares Jupiter which can be very useful for moving ahead with something you desire, as long as you avoid excess and remain disciplined. Many will feel the urge to take on more than they can handle or have the resources to accomplish. Being overly optimistic and exuberant, we need to be careful of being extravagant, so this is best approached with restraint. This can also create difficulties with others, because many will express its influence as arrogant self righteousness. Since you're aware of this possibility you might want to approach those folks by looking for common ground and compassion for their point of view. Also on the 4th the Moon in Scorpio is challenged by Jupiter, harmonizes with Pluto, and opposed by Mars. The day begins with benevolent and generous feelings for those in our immediate environment, then later having deep emotions finding their way to the surface and felt on a profound level, and finally influences people to be more excitable and irritable which can cause problems in our personal lives.
May 5th is 11 - Chicchan "chee-chan" or Serpent: resolution through being flexible, with the Sagittarius Moon merges with Saturn and is opposed by Mercury which shifts from wanting to be alone in our thoughts and feelings, to later some feeling a real conflict between feelings and reason and others having fruitful expressions of their deeper awareness either internally or with another.
The 6th is 12 - Cimi "key-mee" or Transformation: understanding through releasing what no longer serves us, while the Sun trines Pluto which brings very intense and powerful experiences which may illuminate our deepest psychology and darkest, normally unseen, mental realms. This is great transformational energy for investigation into what parts of our lives should be reformed. This transit illuminates our motives and is great for studying our inner workings. People are more likely to express themselves more forcefully which can make an impact on someone, but be careful of folks who use this energy for ruthless or selfish purposes. The best use of this energy is for your own personal growth and evolution. Also on the 6th the Moon in Sagittarius is challenged by Neptune, and supported by Jupiter and Uranus. The day begins with bringing our dreams into the day's vibration, then later people having a pleasant sense of wellbeing, and finally brings a desire for emotional excitement to engage in activities outside our daily routine.
May 7th is 13 - Manik "man-eek" or Deer: movement to the next stage through being of service to others, while Venus enters Cancer which is romantic and sensitive but also practical. Cancer is about the home and family and Venus is about love, money, beauty and socializing, so it might be nice to entertain at home between the 7th and June 5th. Also on the 7th the Sagittarius Moon is opposed by Venus which brings pleasant energy for enjoying sensual experiences and rich food with a caution against overindulgence.
So no matter what energies are affecting you during this 1 Eagle 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.
