Welcome to the new moon in Taurus and partial solar eclipse! While this event takes place on April 30, 2022, we will likely feel the effects a week before and 6 months after. Eclipses are not only powerful times of realization, they have the potential "portals". By portal I mean a non-linear experience that can feel like massive acceleration, or profound realization. This eclipse in particular is on the tipping point of our own realizations for not only how powerful we are as creators, but also of what's possible for us to heal and experience intros lifetime.
I discuss in the podcast above the astrological aspects that are supercharging this eclipse: Pluto retrograde, sun, moon, Uranus conjunction as well as north node conjunction. I also mention the significance of eclipses in this year, 2022, as a tipping point that can move us in a nonlinear way towards the age of Aquarius.
In ancient times those in charge of what we now term astrology were either fired, punished or killed if they got the dates of the eclipses wrong. Who knew? This is an indicator that our ancestors understood the power of these occurrences. They sought to harness their energy as well as gather new information from the cosmos. Knowing the date and time of the eclipse was the job of something equivalent of a high priest or scientist. As it took a fair amount of training (without computers) to tune into these cosmic cycles.
We are fortunate today to have tools and computers to help us with these "divinations" we are also encouraged during this eclipse to step away from our understanding of the world as we know it. In this podcast I offer that there are higher dimensions co-existing with us already on this planet. One way of beginning to understand higher dimensions and levels of consciousness is to consider that life exists deep within the earth.
While there are many theories and names for those theories of what the inner earth looks like, I want to offer the Buddhist notion of Shambhala as an entry point to our understanding. The images below are depictions of the worlds that exist both within the earth and on higher planes of consciousness. (note: this are my words, as I interpret these images). Shambhala is both a modern Tibetan Buddhists based out of Colorado, as well as a mythical kingdom written about in ancient Tibetan texts, I am referring to the latter which you can see depicted in ancient images below.
Shambala is a Sanskrit word that means a “place of peace” or a “place of silence.” It is mentioned in Buddhist and Hindu texts. In Buddhism, it is specifically mentioned in the Kalachakra Tantra as a unique place that exists within our own planet. “Shambala is a kingdom where humanity’s wisdom is spared from the destructions and corruptions of time and history, ready to save the world in its hour of need,” a commentary of the Kalachakra Tantra states (Collective Evolution).
The Bon scriptures speak of a closely related land called Tagzig Olmo Lung Ring. The Sanskrit name is taken from the name of a city mentioned in the Hindu Puranas. The mythological relevance of the place originates with a prophecy in Vishnu Purana (4.24) according to which Shambhala will be:
Welcome to the energy of the full moon in Libra, which takes place on April 16th 2022. This full moon is extra powerful in that it arrives right after the Jupiter Neptune conjunction which is exact on April 14th. I speak in the podcast about both of these events, and how they are perfectly in sync to support us in remembering and embracing our energetic role in "Cosmic Justice."
The Jupiter Neptune conjunction takes place the sign of Pisces, once every 166 years. This conjunction will help us to see things more clearly, using our intuition and energetic knowing to move beyond the illusion and delusion of the physical world. This supports the the overarching theme of "Cosmic Justice" as we are receiving energetic downloads to enable us to move fluidly through the outdated structured and belief systems that are crumbling so as to be reborn. This conjunction will be felt from March through may 2022, peaking at or around the 14th.
The full moon which is two days after the exact conjunction adds more nuance and power to the energy of "Cosmic Justice". Libra is traditionally the sign of the scales, balance, harmony, diplomacy, love and justice. As such it adds a grounding energy to the ephemeral conjunction. The Libra full moon will help us to put into action and belief in the 3d world all the downloads we get from the Jupiter Neptune conjunction. Perfect!
As an extra bonus for the Jupiter Neptune conjunction so close to the Libra Full Moon I wanted to offer an oracle reading with my brief you tube video. You can find that below. Enjoy :)
