Moon & the Kundalini   Leave a comment

The moon and the Sun rule the 3rd chakra, this chakra is all about who we are and how we fit in to the giant puzzle of life on earth.  We are all unique individuals yet we are all part of the brotherhood of mankind.  A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.

Societies establish hierarchies. Wealthy or well-educated people usually acquire the highest positions.  Good moral citizens, the ordinary people, normally occupy the middle rungs on the social ladder. That leaves the bottom dwellers, those such as prostitutes, substance abusers, criminals, the homeless, and others. During Christ’s time, that list also included lepers and tax collectors.

Those on the bottom are often excluded and that can include the disabled and other minority groups. Jesus reached out to all the minority groups that existed in his time; poor, lepers, prostitutes, tax collectors, publicans, Samaritans.  He spend time with the ostracised and rebuked those at the top of society: Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the door of the kingdom of heaven in people’s faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to.  This is all about telling others they are not good enough to enter, that they are less than everybody else but the truth was these people had shut their hearts to others and so could not enter the kingdom of heaven which is pure eternal unconditonal love.

We were all meant to be a human family united by love and responsibility to each others welfare, none of us were ever meant to exclude others to demean and abuse them through power and privilege.  This is the message of the moon that we are all family and we are all equal.

Moon in aspect to the sun

Here the issue of how we are all talented and gifted as part of the human family so we can work together too create more than was ever possible on our own is highlighted, This aspect is all about using our own skills and talents as part of a community to benefit everybody, and the realisation that it takes the gifts and talents of everybody to make a community whole and vibrant.  Each of us is special and unique and those unique qualities mean we can combine an infinite amount of talent in a wide spectrum of humanity to make the impossible, possible.  Those with sun in aspect t the moon have a natural understanding of why we were all meant to work together, respect and value each other.

Moon in aspect to Mercury,

This combines the energy of the 3rd chakra and the 5th chakra, the 3rd chakra has two branches the Sun and the moon. Mercury in aspect to the moon is all about realising we are all Buddhas, Jesus or God.  This is about seeing the divine in each other and understanding we are all family and we are all connected to one another.  This aspect is about understanding we are all interconnected and that real wisdom comes from listening to others by sharing and understanding each other we grow wise.  as children we are often told stories about our ancestors and our history, the myths and stories we are given from whichever culture we belong to all contain wisdom.  They are the gifts of our ancestors, given freely to each of us and this is what we too pass on to the next generations, the myths and stories that inspire, teach and define us.

Moon in aspect to Venus,

Venus in aspect to the moon denotes working together as a community to better each others lives, what cannot be done by the individual is possible as part of a community and when this aspect is working best it improves the lives of everybody around them.  Working with everybody and involving the whole of a community means that nobody is left excluded they are all valued and Venus here grows the leaves of mutual respect and unconditional love for those that others would exclude and demean.  This aspect opens others up to creating an inclusive community where the gifts and talents of everybody benefit the whole.

Moon in aspect to Mars,

if this energy is properly used the individual is driven to create a strong sense of identity as part of a contributor to family and community and a valued member of both.  Mars here drives us to seek unity with others and form bonds and common goals, it is unlikely as an individual to be able to create and sustain a school yet as a community we do this along with hospitals and other amenities.  When local hospital services are threatened it is the shared anger of the community that often stops the action in its tracks.  Mars here is a powerful motivator for change when used appropriately.

Moon in aspect to Jupiter,

is all about developing faith in the bonds of family and our connection to the land and culture of our ancestors.  Through the third chakra we realise we are guardians of the land just as our ancestors were and we continue in their footsteps.  This energy helps us create branches that reach out to the world around us in faith that we are all interconnected and interdependent.  We have the opportunity of realising the possibilities of the human family working as one.  Here the Joy of being alive and sense of wonder develops a strong connection to nature and the wonders of the universe.

Moon in aspect to Saturn,

here the strength of the root and the trunk or our 1st and 2nd chakras are necessary to support the creative branches of the third chakra.  This may mean that branches may at times be cut off to strengthen the roots and indeed it may be necessary for the trunk to be coppiced to create a root that is strong and secure.  If coppicing has occurred the strength of the root will ensure the new trunk is stable and durable able to support many branches. Nelson Mandela had Saturn square his moon, his incarceration in solitude was a major coppicing event in his life being separated from friends and family for years is unimaginable to most of us.  Yet this event gave him the inner strength and stability needed after his release to make the positive changes necessary for the benefit of all in South Africa. Although he lost his family for many years he created a whole and united South African family where there was once fractures, segregation and pain.

Moon in aspect to Uranus,

denotes the opportunity to understand that we are all part of one family and interconnected to each other through the miracle of life.  The opportunity here is to develop unconditional love for others as part of understanding we are all brothers and sisters connected by the divine spirit of love that dwells in our soul.  The opportunity to reconnect with the wisdom and beliefs of our ancestors is also accentuated.  Here the understanding that we are individuals with our own thoughts, needs and personality develops into the understanding that we all need to be loved as part of our family, community and the human story.  There is an understanding that can be reached of the complex wisdom and love that encompasses all of humanity and is only ever equal to all of mankind’s individual components.  The merchant banker contains the same spiritual wisdom and love as the Guru, the homeless person contains the same worth and benefit to society as the doctor.

Moon in aspect to Neptune,

denotes learning to value the bonds of love that connect us to each other through the family, that understands the trauma of being excluded from that love, the pain and misery this causes and understanding the need for all to feel included loved and valued.  There is an opportunity to reach out to others to include them as part of our family and embrace their differences positively.  The moon provides an opportunity to understand who we are as part of a family, a culture and a living history.  We come from the land of our ancestors mother earth and we trace the same footsteps on the same journey through life as they once did.  We have the opportunity to connect with the past and the future as part of the dynamic aspect of life.  We travel the same journey as they once did and we learn from their experiences and stories and pass those on to future generations as they begin the journey through life.  When we have come to the journey’s end we have an opportunity to reconnect to those ancestors who walked before us and become one with them in the light of universal love.  Neptune here is bringing the energies of the 3rd chakra into focus and defining their purpose in relation to the ego and the family.

Moon in aspect to Pluto,

denotes learning the importance of emotions and connections to those we love.  This is a necessary stage in which the soul learns the pain of love, loss, birth and death.  Through understanding the fear of loss and the separation from loved ones, the soul understand the preciousness of the time we have together on earth and the importance of showing love and affection to those close to us.  This understanding of the importance of love for the development of loved ones ego and self-confidence gives us greater insight into our own development.  The soul has the opportunity of understanding the power of unconditional love through the family.

Mercury & the Kundalini   Leave a comment

‘Wise men say, only fools rush in, but I can’t help falling in love with you’

Mercury with Uranus rules the 5th Chakra, the throat Chakra. The throat Chakra is fed by the 4th Chakra the Heart in order for this Chakra to be effective the heart Chakra needs to be strong. Wisdom comes through love and she gives the greatest gifts.  She shall give to thine head an ornament of grace: a crown of glory shall she deliver to thee. Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. For wisdom is more precious than rubies, and nothing you desire can compare with her. My fruit is better than fine gold; what I yield surpasses choice silver.  Wisdom has built her house; she has carved its seven columns. – Proverbs

Zen teacher John Daido Loori said,

“Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva is the Hearer of the Cries of the World. And one of the characteristics of Avalokiteshvara is that she manifests herself in accord with the circumstances. So she always presents herself in a form that’s appropriate to what’s going on. In the Bowery, she manifests as a bum. Tonight, in barrooms across the country, she’ll manifest as a drunk. Or as a motorist on the highway, or as a fireman, or a physician. Always responding in accord with the circumstances, in a form appropriate to the circumstances. How is that?

“Every time there’s a stranded vehicle on the side of the road and a motorist stops to help Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva has manifested herself. Those characteristics of wisdom and compassion are the characteristics of all beings. All Buddhas. We all have that potential. It’s just a matter of awakening it. You awaken it by realizing there’s no separation between self and other.”

Do not think of the bodhisattva as a being separate from yourself. When we see and hear the suffering of others and respond to that suffering, we are the heads and arms of the bodhisattva.

There is a story about a statue of Jesus which lost its arms during WWII, after the war was ended people met to decide whether the statue should be replaced and after much discussion decided that the statue did not need arms as they themselves were his arms.

Wisdom works with compassion to reach her arms out to others in empathy and understanding.

Mercury conjunct the Sun,

This combines the energy of the 3rd chakra and the 5th chakra, the 3rd chakra has two branches the Sun and the moon. Mercury in aspect to the sun is all about investing our talents that they might reap the reward of wisdom.  We are all born with gifts and abilities to develop and share with others.  The parable of the talents tells us to use the gifts fruitfully and to appreciate them, the Talent was a large sum of money maybe even as much as a million dollars in today’s world it could have been used for much common good by the man who had one yet he buried it. The others who worked to develop and use those talents both doubled their worth or their fruitfulness, the 5th chakra is that of the fruits of wisdom we bear and to bear abundant fruit we need to use our talents and gifts.  Mercury’s next transit of the sun is 9th May 2016.

Mercury in aspect to the Moon,

This combines the energy of the 3rd chakra and the 5th chakra, the 3rd chakra has two branches the Sun and the moon. Mercury in aspect to the moon is all about realising we are all Buddhas, Jesus or God.  This is about seeing the divine in each other and understanding we are all family and we are all connected to one another.  This aspect is about understanding we are all interconnected and that real wisdom comes from listening to others by sharing and understanding each other we grow wise.  as children we are often told stories about our ancestors and our history, the myths and stories we are given from whichever culture we belong to all contain wisdom.  They are the gifts of our ancestors, given freely to each of us and this is what we too pass on to the next generations, the myths and stories that inspire, teach and define us.

Mercury in aspect to Venus,

healthy leaves contain the ability to produce the energy that is necessary to bear fruit.  The leaves of the tree is love and that is the 5th Chakra.  Wisdom comes from love and without love it is meaningless, Venus in aspect to Mercury ensures good fruit that is nourished by the light of love.  Here the words of Jesus explaining that it is not what is eaten that make us unclean but what is said, done and thought takes on great significance.  Wisdom is what we leave those that follow after us, it connects us to them down through the ages.  Buildings crumble and fall apart but wisdom lives on, it is the most loving thing we can leave future generations.  wisdom is not a list of do’s and don’t’s it is a way of understanding we are all precious, we all matter and we are all create from the universal light of love.  When we speak to others and they feel our love that is wisdom and it is the little things we say that often have the most meaning for those that follow.

Mercury in aspect to Mars,

this is aspecting the energy of life itself based in the root Chakra, if this energy is properly used it must be processed through the heart chakra before reaching the throat chakra.  The heart chakra ensures that the energy of compassion and altruism is completely unified. Compassion means suffer with or to be unified in passion / anger with another. When we unite our passion / anger with others we are motivated to speak out to demand justice and fairness for all.  At its best use this energy gives us the strength to speak out against the many for the rights of the few.  Uncontrolled this is the verbal expression of anger, many people either vent physically or vocally and inability to express anger verbally or complete verbal expression of uncontrolled anger may be indicated.

Mercury in aspect to Jupiter,

the second chakra the base chara in aspect to the 5th chakra is all about the creation of the fruit of wisdom, that gives vitality and energy to wisdom that it may nourish the seeds of the 6th and 7th chakras.  Through the 5th chakra we realise the potential of wisdom and knowledge in sowing the seeds of change within society as a whole.  This energizes individuals to speak out for the benefit of mankind especially against injustice and abuse of power.  Here there is a sense of faith in the ability of mankind to develop equality and justice in all communities and to make the world a more compassionate and just place to live.

Mercury in aspect to Saturn,

here the strength of the root is needed to develop the fruit of wisdom. Once upon a time there was an apple tree which God had created. It was a young tree without any leaves or fruit. One night the young tree saw the brilliant stars and was very unhappy. He wished for himself to have these sparkling stars on his branches so that he too would be beautiful. The next morning, God noticed that the tree was unhappy, and He said to him, “Let me make something for you. I will dress you up in a beautiful mantle of green so that you will be beautiful to behold. Then you will not be so unhappy.”  But the tree was not content with God’s plan. “I do not want a mantle of green, I want stars.” The next morning the tree saw that God had not given him stars, but green leaves. And the tree frowned upon it. Once again the tree said to God, “I want stars,” but instead, God gave him beautiful red fruit. The tree was even more unhappy. The wind saw how unhappy the apple tree was and the wind became unhappy too. The wind blew and tried to set the apple tree free of the leaves and the fruit, but he failed. However, as the wind blew, some of the leaves and fruit fell to the ground. One piece of fruit broke into two pieces right in the middle. When the tree looked upon the broken fruit, guess what he saw?  Inside the fruit was the shape of a star! Not only did the apple contain the star of wisdom but also the seeds of the 6th and 7th chakras.  Saturn here prunes back the dead and old branches in order for us to bear fruit.  It makes sure the root is strong enough and stable enough to support the fruit our tree grows.

Mercury in aspect to Uranus,

denotes a strong 5th chakra energy with the opportunity to develop greater understanding of the divine wisdom that surrounds us.  The individual has the ability to use the reason, love and wisdom he was born with to develop a strong ability to discern how he can best use his talents to create a better more humane society for all whether that be by practical means such as medicine or engineering, alternatively they may choose more abstract forms through which raising questions and challenging the beliefs and ideas of society may be part of art, politics or other arenas.  These individuals may have a strong inner voice that adds strength and dynamism to all they say and do.  In the system of the Sufi Lataif-e-sitta there are no Lataif in the throat, but there are three in the region of the heart which are arranged horizontally and not vertically. They are the galb or heart, which is the battleground between the lower forces of the Nafs and the higher forces of the Ruh or spirit; the Ruh which is said by some to be situated on the right hand side of the chest; and Sirr, or secret, between them both in the middle of the chest.  Lower forces of the Naf are the first three Chakras the 1st the realisation of physical battle of survival that all life shares, the 2nd the cycle of life and creativity to which all forms of life share and the 3rd the ego and emotional self or psyche that sets us apart from all other life.  Sirr or the secret would relate to the 5th Chakra where wisdom allows us to understand the importance of the lower chakras and to blend these vital energies with the energy of unconditional love within the heart chakra to form reason and wisdom that understands that real unconditional love and wisdom means accepting the importance of all these energies in everybody for without sustenance  of these chakras the soul or heart chakra withers.

Mercury in aspect to Neptune,

denotes learning about the different sources of knowledge and valuing them all, all who have walked before us have their own tale of their journey and what they have learnt along the way whether that was scientific, spiritual, philosophical, cultural they are all a source of valuable information.  There is an opportunity for the individual to find their own voice and begin telling their own unique story of what they have learnt from their ancestors and on their own journey through life.  Mercury provides an opportunity to understand we are all part of the one same story with our own individual wisdom and knowledge to share with each other.    Mercury gives us an opportunity to connect to all sources of wisdom and to understand their importance as part of the rich cultural heritage we all share as human beings.  When we come to the journey’s end Mercury’s understanding give us the opportunity to realise where the path leads and to be open and accepting of returning once more to the light of love.  Neptune here is bringing the energies of the 5th chakra into focus and defining their purpose in relation to seeking and giving wisdom.

Mercury in aspect to Pluto,

denotes learning an understanding off the purpose of spiritual wisdom or the wisdom of unconditional love.  The soul learns that it already knows all it ever needed to know, that it was born with inner wisdom and that it must quieten the negative voice that says it can’t and learn to trust the voice that tells it; it already knows the answers, that they reside deep within them already.  The soul learns to trust that what they need to know will be revealed to them and that what is not revealed is not meant for them to know.  The opportunity to understand that unconditional universal love is the source of all wisdom and we all have an access to that wisdom when needed may be developed here and much insight reached.  The soul has the potential of understanding that we were all born enlightened, that this knowledge was always inside of them.

Venus and the Kundalini   Leave a comment

Venus along with Uranus rules the heart chakra.

Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. The Heart Chakra is of vital importance because what is created here never fails and cannot be destroyed; it passes on with us, It passes on through future generations, it passes on to those who are affected by our abundance or shortage of compassion, love and understanding.  Our vision of the future is constantly changing depending on how we all treat each other and the environment – we can have prophesies of the future but they will always reflect the condition of the heart at present.  To change our future we must change our hearts, still the tongues of the critics or lose the knowledge and wisdom of our ancestors as the world decays into endless violence.

For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and forfeit his soul? The Heart Chakra houses the soul and what is created from this point onwards is what we carry with us at the point of death.

“Sing the song of celestial love, O singer!  May the divine fountain of eternal grace and joy enter your soul.  May Brahma, (the Divine One),  Pluck the strings of your inner soul with His celestial fingers,  And feel His own presence within.  Bless us with a divine voice  That we may tune the harp-strings of our life To sing songs of Love to you.” (Rig Veda)

“Meditating on the lotus of your heart,
in the center is the untainted;
the exquisitely pure, clear, and sorrowless;
the inconceivable;
the unmanifest,
of infinite form;
blissful, tranquil, immortal;
the womb of Brahma.”
(Kaivalyopanishad)

Venus in aspect to Sun,

think of the chakras as part of a tree, the root chakra (Mars & Saturn) connect us to the earth and the nutrients (energy) contained there, The base Chakra (Jupiter and Pluto) is the base of the trunk it bears the weight of the rest of the tree and carries the nutrients to the branches, leaves and fruit.  The trunk divides into two main sections or branches this is the third Chakra and it is ruled by the Sun and Moon.  This branch when healthy contains many leaves (heart chakra), in order to be healthy and support these leaves this branch needs nutrients and a stable base to grow. In order for the sun branch to grow and develop it needs a few things, it needs to understand that it is capable of doing many things in life, it needs to be confident enough to grow towards the sun and it needs to be able to reach that light. Venus in aspect to sun is all about how we achieve that growth, in dynamic aspect that growth may have been hard and there may have been a lot of pushing through dark canopies before seeing some light.  The strength developed by pushing through the darkness gives this branch strength to support strong leaves when it does reach the light.  Strong leaves work a magical alchemy they combine the nutrients of the branch with the energy of the light of love and they create something new, they create the source of life itself.  The Sun here adds vigour and strength to the light of love, our purpose in life is to reconnect with the divine universal love and others.  Through the individuals skills and talents he can show this love for mankind, by what he / she creates and leaves as a legacy of their time in the world.

Venus in aspect to the moon,

This branch when healthy also contains many leaves.  This branch reaches out towards our family and our community, it stretches out to connect with other branches and entwined they support each other.  The branches here work to strengthen and support each other to connect and embrace, for these branches can bear more leaves through working together.  Venus in aspect to the moon denotes working together as a community to better each others lives, what cannot be done by the individual is possible as part of a community and when this aspect is working best it improves the lives of everybody around them.  Working with everybody and involving the whole of a community means that nobody is left excluded they are all valued and Venus here grows the leaves of mutual respect and unconditional love for those that others would exclude and demean.  This aspect opens others up to creating an inclusive community where the gifts and talents of everybody benefit the whole.

Venus in aspect to Mercury,

healthy leaves contain the ability to produce the energy that is necessary to bear fruit.  The fruit of the tree is wisdom and that is the 5th Chakra.  Wisdom comes from love and without love it is meaningless, Venus in aspect to Mercury ensures good fruit that is nourished by the light of love.  Here the words of Jesus explaining that it is not what is eaten that make us unclean but what is said, done and thought takes on great significance.  Wisdom is what we leave those that follow after us, it connects us to them down through the ages.  Buildings crumble and fall apart but wisdom lives on, it is the most loving thing we can leave future generations.  wisdom is not a list of do’s and don’ts it is a way of understanding we are all precious, we all matter and we are all create from the universal light of love.  When we speak to others and they feel our love that is wisdom and it is the little things we say that often have the most meaning for those that follow.

Venus in aspect to Mars

Mars rules the root chakra with Saturn and represents the life force that flows through us often this energy may be expressed as anger or passion, the raw passion of anger is converted combined with the energy of unconditional universal love, at its best this allows us to create a force for good in the world and provides the necessary energy for change.  Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.  Love never fails.  Utopian societies in fiction often descend into dystopia by the loss of love, ideals followed without regard to the original purpose so that they begin to oppose the ideas they once represented. This energy must always be present for society to remain just and fair and we all play our part in ensuring it remains the basis of society and the law.  “Anger is like electricity,” Gandhi said.  “It serves a useful and powerful purpose if it is used properly.  But it is dangerous if abused and not directed safely.”  Venus here helps to ensure this energy is used for powerful good in the world.

Venus in aspect to Jupiter,

Jupiter rules the base Chakra along with Pluto, the base serves as a foundation of strength.  Jupiter here is all about growth of the heart chakra and the use of alchemy to combine the energy of unconditional love and the spirit with the energy of the earth and nature to produce the fruit of wisdom.  Here to powerful energies combine and create fruit in abundance which is there to be shared with the world and the rest of mankind.  This magnifies the power of love and compassion to change the world around it.  Here the faith in the power of love and compassion to overcome past pain and inequality is strong and a driving force in the individual’s life.

Venus in aspect to Saturn,

Saturn in aspect to Venus creates strong base for the nutrients(energy) to flow from the roots to the leaves or the heart to be used as part of the alchemy of eternal love. What is produced here will create the fruit of the last three chakras.  This aspect denotes that there is a good possibility of producing healthy abundant fruit due to strengthening of the tree as a whole through coppicing and pruning. When a tree has been coppiced its roots become stronger and more stable.  Many grasses are designed to burn down to just above the root, plants have long understood that if the root is strong, stable and secure they can withstand almost anything.  Hard pruning and coppicing encourage new growth which shall be able to produce good fruit.  Although this may be hard at the time what is born later will be of a much higher value because of this.

Venus in aspect to Uranus

denotes strong 4th house energy with the opportunity to understand and feel the unconditional love that is felt for each individual.  Through their own experiences these individuals understand the importance of feeling loved and feeling part of the human family valued for their own unique wisdom and insights.  The heart wheel in Tibetan Buddhism is the location of the indestructible red-and-white drop. At death the winds of the body dissolve and enter this drop, which then leaves the body into Bardo (the intermediate stage) and rebirth.  On the tree of life the central sephirah (Tiphereth) is associated with the heart.  Christian kabbalists, in particular, associate this sephirah with love, healing and Jesus Christ.  In Qigong, the middle Dantian (one of the three furnaces which transform energy in the body) is in this region. The middle Dantian transforms qi energy into shen(spiritual energy).  The heart chakra is the point at which the energies of life and the lower chakras meet the energy of eternal and unconditional love that survives the cycle of life.  Thus the heart chakra is the source of spiritual understanding, through which we reach the wisdom of the 5th chakra and the insight and intuition of the 6th before realising the potential of our own eternal love in the 7th.  Individuals thus have the potential to develop the strength of the chakras above the heart when their heart chakra provides a sound and solid foundation from which to develop from.

Venus in aspect to Neptune,

denotes learning to develop our capacity to love and express affection towards each other openly and honestly, to understand our own intense need for love and affection and to be willing to accept and meet that need in other souls.  There is an opportunity to develop the ability to open up emotionally to others and share real love and compassion with them, this gift has real ability to heal others who have experienced rejection and pain in their life.  The soul learns through loving others that it is connected to the source of all love, that in accessing this love and compassion it breathes life into its own soul as well as that of others.  The knowledge of the power of this connection helps the individual understand that death is nothing to fear for their soul will live as long as it is connected to universal love and it can return home to it when it leaves the body.  Neptune here is bringing the energies of the 4th chakra into focus and defining their purpose in relation to understanding the power of unconditional love.

Venus in aspect to Pluto

denotes learning to accept our insecurities as humans and to recognise the power of unconditional love to heal those fears and wounds.  The soul has the opportunity to develop its capacity to love and to heal itself through accessing the universal unconditional love it senses.  The soul has the opportunity to understand the importance of love in remaining spiritually alive, only through access to universal love can the soul heal and develop.  Once the soul has accessed this energy it is able to heal and aid others whose souls have been injured through life.

Mars and the Kundalini   Leave a comment

Mars with Saturn rules the root chakra, or the Muladhara, this is where our energy comes from.  Mars is connected with anger for good reason when we are angry it is because we are unhappy about a situation or feel threatened – anger causes us to deal or take action to remedy the situation or threat.  Mars drives us to create a situation in which we are safe and secure and where we have the nurturing necessary for growth.  The drive of anger to create a better situation for oneself also makes us more positive on life Mars and anger can drive us to say I am not accepting this I deserve better and I will obtain it.  Anger also expresses our emotional nature people understand what we care passionately about and what we find acceptable in how ourselves and others are treated.  Imagine a world where nobody was angered by the slaughter of innocent children, would the world intervene with the passion and commitment needed to stop their slaughter.   Mars rules this energy that drives us to care about ourselves and others.  Mars is our passion and that is often expressed as anger.  Mars is also our Kundalini and if we are supressing our anger we are supressing it also.  If we are not in control of it we are also not in control of the energy of our Kundalini.  Aristotle wrote, ‘The man who is angry at the right things and with the right people, and further, as he ought, when he ought, and as long as he ought, is praised.’

“Anger is like electricity,” Gandhi said.  “It serves a useful and powerful purpose if it is used properly.  But it is dangerous if abused and not directed safely.”

“There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.”  – Nelson Mandela

“Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle. And so we must straighten our backs and work for our freedom. A man can’t ride you unless your back is bent.” Martin Luther King Jr.

Mars in aspect to the Sun,

If this energy is used properly the individual is driven to create a strong sense of self by using their passion and anger to live up to their highest expectations of themselves whether that be speaking up about injustice or using their talents to optimum effect. The Sun with the moon rules the third chakra which is all about creating a positive sense of who we are – we do this by following our own value judgements and living by those principles.  Individuals with this aspect may find a strong sense of their own worth through working for the rights and benefits of others.  When we have a good sense of our own worth we get angry if that is not appreciated by others and we demand the respect and or pay that we deserve, the development of appropriate self esteem and respect helps the flow of energy here to reach a purpose if we do not value our worth the energy of the kundalini recedes once more.  In valuing our worth we use the drive and passion of Mars energy to create a reflection of our values and beliefs in society through our children and / or work.

Mars in aspect to the Moon,

if this energy is properly used the individual is driven to create a strong sense of identity as part of a contributor to family and community and a valued member of both.  Mars here drives us to seek unity with others and form bonds and common goals, it is unlikely as an individual to be able to create and sustain a school yet as a community we do this along with hospitals and other amenities.  When local hospital services are threatened it is the shared anger of the community that often stops the action in its tracks.  Mars here is a powerful motivator for change when used appropriately.

Mars in aspect to Mercury,

if this energy is properly used it must be processed through the heart chakra before reaching the throat chakra.  The heart chakra ensures that the energy of compassion and altruism is completely unified. Compassion means suffer with or to be unified in passion / anger with another. When we unite our passion / anger with others we are motivated to speak out to demand justice and fairness for all.  At its best use this energy gives us the strength to speak out against the many for the rights of the few.  Uncontrolled this is the verbal expression of anger, many people either vent physically or vocally and inability to express anger verbally or complete verbal expression of uncontrolled anger may be indicated.

Mars in aspect to Venus,

Here the raw passion of anger is converted combined with the energy of unconditional universal love, at its best this allows us to create a force for good in the world and provides the necessary energy for change.  Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.  Love never fails.  Utopian societies in fiction often descend into dystopia by the loss of love, ideals followed without regard to the original purpose so that they begin to oppose the ideas they once represented.

Jupiter and the Kundalini   Leave a comment

Jupiter with Pluto rules the 2nd chakra the Swadhisthana, one’s own abode or one’s own base. To best understand this Chakra and the importance of Jupiter we have to understand it in relation to Pluto and the Chakras.

The second chakra represents our base, the root chakra is all about our foundations and the base chakra represents what is built upon them. It can also be seen as the base of the tree trunk from which the trunk grows and expands.  The trunk begins life as a shoot growing towards the light its base under the soil pushes up through the earth towards the sky in search of the energy of the light. The growth of the shoot is dependent on the growth and stability of its roots (Saturn) and the nutrients received (Mars).  If all the energy is put into growth and the roots are weak then the shoot will grow fast but fail to flourish.

Assuming the shoot and roots are stable the shoot can begin to produce a few branches, this is the energy of the third chakra and the shape or form these branches take and develop are dependent on the Sun and moon.  The more stable the root and shoot become the more they grow stronger until the shoot becomes a trunk that can support growth of the branches and off shoots.  All these branches are designed to form leaves (Heart chakra).  The more abundant the branches the more leaves they can produce.  The flow of nutrients or energy through the trunk to the branches determines the ability of the leaf to perform the alchemy of creation through the energy of light.

This alchemy created in the heart chakra produces fruit, the fruit of the 5th chakra.  The fruit of the throat chakra is wisdom and within this fruit are the seeds of the 6th and 7th chakras.  The purpose of fruit is the dispersal and fertilisation of the seeds.  The fruit of the 5th chakra must be desirable to spread those seeds and for them to develop.  Or in other words the greater the wisdom the more nourished the 6th and 7th chakra are. The 6th chakra or the Ajna is ruled by Pluto and Neptune and it is the journey from the trunk to the seed of the Ajna that determines our lives.  The Ajna represents wisdom, intuition and intellect combined.  The Ajna is there to help us reach an understanding of the purpose of our lives.  This is through insight into what we have learnt in the trials we have faced, the love we have encountered and shared and what we have contributed to the world around us.  The Ajna also offers insights into the spiritual world and our journey back towards the light.  when the seed of the Ajna is nourished and developed we have an understanding of our purpose in life, what we can accomplish and our place in the circle of life.  Many people focus on the Ajna without understanding that it is the tree that bears the fruit, and the fruit that nourishes the seed.

The dynamic energy of Mars rises through the root chakra and combines with the energy of Jupiter in the base Chakra to create a dynamic, expanding energy that feeds the development of all the other chakras.  This is the energy of growth and creation.  Development of the Ajna Chakra or third eye starts here.

Jupiter in aspect to the Sun,

is all about developing self-esteem and self actualisation through the third chakra.  Through self belief and confidence in our talents and abilities we are capable of accomplishing the impossible in life.  Jupiter here helps energize and boost the creative energies of the sun to encourage our self-expression.  This energy helps us to be more positive about who we are and have faith to reach out for the stars and stretch those branches upwards.  Here the joy of being alive and the sense of wonder at the world around us is magnified and often finds expression through art forms or work with children / natural world.

Jupiter in aspect to the moon,

is all about developing faith in the bonds of family and our connection to the land and culture of our ancestors.  Through the third chakra we realise we are guardians of the land just as our ancestors were and we continue in their footsteps.  This energy helps us create branches that reach out to the world around us in faith that we are all interconnected and interdependent.  We have the opportunity of realising the possibilities of the human family working as one.  Here the Joy of being alive and sense of wonder develops a strong connection to nature and the wonders of the universe.

Jupiter in Aspect to Mercury,

is all about the creation of the fruit of wisdom in the 5th chakra, that gives vitality and energy to wisdom that it may nourish the seeds of the 6th and 7th chakras.  Through the 5th chakra we realise the potential of wisdom and knowledge in sowing the seeds of change within society as a whole.  This energizes individuals to speak out for the benefit of mankind especially against injustice and abuse of power.  Here there is a sense of faith in the ability of mankind to develop equality and justice in all communities and to make the world a more compassionate and just place to live.

Jupiter in aspect to Venus,

is all about growth of the heart chakra and the use of alchemy to combine the energy of unconditional love and the spirit with the energy of the earth and nature to produce the fruit of wisdom.  Here to powerful energies combine and create fruit in abundance which is there to be shared with the world and the rest of mankind.  This magnifies the power of love and compassion to change the world around it.  Here the faith in the power of love and compassion to overcome past pain and inequality is strong and a driving force in the individual’s life.

Jupiter in aspect to Mars,

is all about combining the dynamic and vital energy of Mars with Jupiter to promote growth of the chakra system.  This creates an energy that when stable is able to energies the whole of the chakras and create a strong Kundalini energy.  This aspect is very powerful and will be a driving force in the individual’s life although they may struggle early on to control and focus this energy as they mature they usually develop the strength and stability needed to harness this energy.

Jupiter in aspect to Saturn,

is all about balancing the need for growth with the need for stability.  This balancing forces both growth and stability to work together to create a strong and stable Kundalini.  This creates a strong and stable root and base from which growth will be long-lasting and fruitful throughout the individual’s life.  This encourages the development of structure within the chakras that allows for the kundalini to flow unimpeded.  The second chakra the Swadhisthana is where the creative energy of mother earth begins to flow upwards since it receives the creative energy directly from the roots this chakra is deeply connected to fertility, both in the form of sexual energy and in the sense that what nutrients or energy flows through this chakra are the ones that create the fruits of the final chakras.

Jupiter in aspect to Uranus,

denotes the opportunity to develop the understanding of being part of the natural cycle and the process of creation as part of the inner wisdom of life and the wonder of living.  Jupiter and Pluto rule the 2nd chakra the Swadhisthana.  Western kabbalists make the kabbalistic association of Swadhisthana with the Sephirah Yesod, Yesod is also associated with the sexual organs. Its function in the tree of life is to gather the different energies that have been created in the descent of the tree downwards and distribute them to Malkuth, the material world, where the energy can find physical expression.  The energy of creation, life and mother earth is seated in the 2nd chakra and Jupiter in aspect to Uranus give the opportunity to understand the potential of life and to develop love for our fellow-man and wisdom based on the understanding of our shared wisdom and love made material.  Those with this aspect may feel very close to nature and mother earth as well as having the opportunity to develop strong healing potential through words and love.

Jupiter in aspect to Neptune,

denotes understanding the miracle of life and the wonders of the world that surround us, we are alive and in a world filled with wonders and natural miracles that inspire awe and faith.  The recognition of the wonders of life and the beauty that surrounds us helps us to appreciate the great opportunity we have as living beings and inspires us to respect mother earth as the source of wonder and amazement.  There is the opportunity to share this wonder and enthusiasm with others and when we enrich their world by sharing the joy and miraculous wonders with them they are also able to share their joy and wonder with us and we connect with each other as being exceptionally gifted to have shared the experience of living.  The soul has the opportunity to explore the many wonders of the world around it and to fill itself with awe inspired memories of nature, children and family that become part of the soul itself and travel with it on the next step of the journey, having experienced this joy and wonder it is easier for it to accept it has had its full share and can move on without regrets of what it has missed.  Neptune here is bringing the energies of the 2nd chakra into focus and defining their purpose in relation to understanding the precious gift of life is miraculous and awe-inspiring part of who we are and all growth starts from this point of awe and wonder.

Jupiter in aspect to Pluto,

denotes the appreciation and joy the soul feels in recognising it is alive, it has a body and can experience the miracle of life.  The soul often expresses this joy by indulging in the senses, touch, smell, taste, sound and vision are gifts of life and here the soul often marvels at the wonderous and awe-inspiring delight they can bring.  The soul recognises the wonders that surrounds it and often feels pure joy simply in living and being. This enthusiasm leads it to want to connect with other souls who share this joy and wonder.  The individual here has the opportunity to express their joy and passion for life with others and to renew their wonder by experiencing the many natural miracles of life.  this joy and wonder creates a base for the energies of the kundalini to grow and develop energizing all the chakras.

Saturn and the Kundalini   Leave a comment

Saturn with Mars rules the Muladhara, the root or base chakra.  Saturn works to create a stable base for the Kundalini energy to flow.  The base chakra is vital and it is important that this chakra is both strong and stable.  This chakra roots us to mother earth and life when we die it ceases to exist and the soul is no longer rooted to the earthly plane.  Even those of us who astral travel are rooted to the earth and our bodies by this chakra it is only after the soul has begun the ascent into the tunnel that the energies from this chakra wither and die back into the earth once more in the perpetual cycle of life.  A stable and vibrant Muladhara provides the foundation for a stable and vibrant kundalini, this is especially important for the first four chakras where the strength and vitality of the Muladhara is very important to the flow of energy into them and the consistency of that energy is dependant on stability.  The Muladhara along with the 2nd and 4th Chakras is also of vital importance when accessing the creative and healing energies of mother earth.  The Muladhara gives access to the potential creative energy held within the earth through the root of Saturn between our base Chakra and the earth.

Our root anchors us and gives us a solid foundation.

24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand.27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”

Before the three little pigs left home to find their life’s fortune in the world, their mother told them, “Whatever you do, do it the best you can”. Sadly, the first two little pigs took the easiest way and built their homes out of straw and sticks. However, the third little pig was wise and built his house out of bricks. As the story unfolds, the big bad wolf huffs, puffs, and blows the first two houses of straw and sticks down. The two little pigs run to their brother’s house built of brick, and the wolf was unable to blow it down. Eventually, the wolf flees the scene and the three little pigs survive! The moral of the story is that the third pig listened to his mother’s wisdom, obeyed her advice, and built his life upon a solid foundation in order to survive.  There are different versions of this fairy tale around the globe.

Coppicing is an English term for a traditional method of woodland management which takes advantage of the fact that many trees make new growth from the stump or roots if cut down. In a coppiced wood, young tree stems are repeatedly cut down to near ground level. In subsequent growth years, many new shoots will emerge.  Coppicing maintains trees at a juvenile stage, and a regularly coppiced tree will never die of old age — some coppice stools may therefore reach immense ages. The age of a stool may be estimated from its diameter, and some are so large—perhaps as much as 5.4 metres (18 ft) across — that they are thought to have been continually coppiced for centuries.  When a tree has been coppiced its roots become stronger and more stable.  Many grasses are designed to burn down to just above the root, plants have long understood that if the root is strong, stable and secure they can withstand almost anything.

If we view the chakras as parts of a tree, the muladhara is the root system that attaches us securely to earth and the base where nutrients are absorbed, the 2nd Chakra is the trunk whose strength and stability is dependant on the roots – the stronger the root, the stronger it can become, if the trunk grows strong and large but the root is weak it will easily be blown over in the wind.  The 3rd chakra may be seen as the branches, which are dependant on a strong trunk to carry the nutrients from the root. The 4th chakra the leaves, which combine the nutrients from the roots with the nutrients of the air (or love) to create life giving energy which create the fruit of the 5th, 6th and 7th Chakras.  Our tree can lose its leaves in winter and branches can break off, its trunk may be cut down but as long as its root is stable it will survive and come back stronger than before. If our tree has weak roots and is blown over by the wind it will die.

Saturn in aspect to the Sun,

here the strength of the root and the trunk or our 1st and 2nd chakras are necessary to support the creative branches of the third chakra.  This may mean that branches may at times be cut off to strengthen the roots and indeed it may be necessary for the trunk to be coppiced to create a root that is strong and secure.  If coppicing has occurred the strength of the root will ensure the new trunk is stable and durable able to support many branches.  Pruning of the ego may be painful at times leaving lasting insecurities but behind the cut, new shoots emerge that will be more fruitful for the individual in their life.  Here the long term goal of Saturn is creating strong and stable foundation for growth.

Saturn in aspect to the moon,

here the strength of the root and the trunk or our 1st and 2nd chakras are necessary to support the creative branches of the third chakra.  This may mean that branches may at times be cut off to strengthen the roots and indeed it may be necessary for the trunk to be coppiced to create a root that is strong and secure.  If coppicing has occurred the strength of the root will ensure the new trunk is stable and durable able to support many branches. Nelson Mandela had Saturn square his moon, his incarceration in solitude was a major coppicing event in his life being separated from friends and family for years is unimaginable to most of us.  Yet this event gave him the inner strength and stability needed after his release to make the positive changes necessary for the benefit of all in South Africa.

Saturn in aspect to Mercury,

here the strength of the root is needed to develop the fruit of wisdom. Once upon a time there was an apple tree which God had created. It was a young tree without any leaves or fruit. One night the young tree saw the brilliant stars and was very unhappy. He wished for himself to have these sparkling stars on his branches so that he too would be beautiful. The next morning, God noticed that the tree was unhappy, and He said to him, “Let me make something for you. I will dress you up in a beautiful mantle of green so that you will be beautiful to behold. Then you will not be so unhappy.”  But the tree was not content with God’s plan. “I do not want a mantle of green, I want stars.” The next morning the tree saw that God had not given him stars, but green leaves. And the tree frowned upon it. Once again the tree said to God, “I want stars,” but instead, God gave him beautiful red fruit. The tree was even more unhappy. The wind saw how unhappy the apple tree was and the wind became unhappy too. The wind blew and tried to set the apple tree free of the leaves and the fruit, but he failed. However, as the wind blew, some of the leaves and fruit fell to the ground. One piece of fruit broke into two pieces right in the middle. When the tree looked upon the broken fruit, guess what he saw?  Inside the fruit was the shape of a star! Not only did the apple contain the star of wisdom but also the seeds of the 6th and 7th chakras.  Saturn here prunes back the dead and old branches in order for us to bear fruit.  It makes sure the root is strong enough and stable enough to support the fruit our tree grows.

Saturn in aspect to Venus,

Here the green leaves produce the magic alchemy of life. Saturn in aspect to Venus creates strong base for the nutrients(energy) to flow from the roots to the leaves or the heart to be used as part of the alchemy of eternal love. What is produced here will create the fruit of the last three chakras.  This aspect denotes that there is a good possibility of producing healthy abundant fruit due to strengthening of the tree as a whole through coppicing and pruning.

Saturn in aspect to Mars,

if Saturn represents the strength and stability of the root system, Mars represents the nutrients that flows or the energy that is capable of flowing through the tree and it is proportional to the stability and strength of the roots. Saturn here is all about strengthening the root system to allow this energy to flow better and enrich the whole tree.  In order for this energy to have maximum effect its systems need to be strong and secure and Saturn enables this energy to reach its maximum potential by creating a strong system.

Saturn in aspect to Jupiter,

Our trunk starts as a tiny shoot growing towards the light, the light of hope, wonder and awe can at times leave us but this ultimately encourages us to grow upwards searching for the light and it is our root that allows us to do this. and often when we have a strong trunk it is cut down out of the blue and we are left with just our root but after it recovers from the shock it is stronger and the new trunk is more stable and stronger than the previous one. The second chakra the Swdhisthana is where the creative energy of mother earth begins to flow upwards since it receives the creative energy directly from the roots this chakra is deeply connected to fertility, both in the form of sexual energy and in the sense that what nutrients or energy flows through this chakra are the ones that create the fruits of the final chakras.

Saturn in aspect to Uranus,

Uranus rules the 4th and 5th Chakras of the heart and throat.  Saturn in aspect to Uranus creates a stable system that can support the leaves and fruit of the 4th and 5th chakras and allows the energy to flow that keeps them healthy and productive.  With this aspect there is the strength to withstand the storms of life through the trials of life that have enabled healthy fruit to be produced.  Those with this aspect may provide a secure and stable base for less fortunate individuals to rely on in times of need and they may be attracted to working with the less fortunate in life.  The Muladhara also corresponds to the energy of the earth signs and is the point where the chakras connect to the earth itself as such those with Uranus in aspect to Saturn may also develop much wisdom and understanding of the natural world and have a deep respect for our home, nurturer and provider.

Saturn in aspect to Neptune,

denotes understanding the real world involves pain and discomfort and that our actions produce results we have to live with and endure, that life exists for a short time only and we need to act while we still have the opportunity to do so. Saturn reminds us that we share the journey of life with others and that what we do or do not do affects their journey and opportunities to make the most of it.  There is an opportunity to share this common responsibility we have to each other and to help others realise the effects of their actions and behaviour on this wondrous planet for future generations and on each other.  The soul has the opportunity to accept its responsibility as part of the living history of mother earth to ensure its survival and to protect what their ancestors nurtured and nourished in the natural world and in regards to each other, to help others understand the principles of respect and consideration for what has gone before and what will be left as a legacy.  The soul here by protecting what is left for future generations feels secure in letting go and moving on to the next step of the journey in the knowledge that loved ones will have a future that is worth while.  Neptune here is bringing the energies of the 1st chakra into focus and defining their purpose in relation to understanding the precious gift of life and the need to take responsibility for it.

Saturn in aspect to Pluto,

denotes the ability to reach the realisation that they are alive and from birth they feel the intense drive to breath, the pain of cold air against skin and the warmth of their mother’s touch.  The soul realises it is in a physical body and feels the intense needs to eat, sleep and be warm.  The soul understands that when it falls it hurts that to be alive is to be physically connected to pain and pleasure.  The soul here is very aware of the physical world around them and that the consequences of their actions and those of others have real effects.  The individual here has the opportunity to help others realise that all we do has consequences for others.  These individuals can help others to consider the effects their actions have on the world around them.  They have a strong understanding of why we are all pruned to produce good fruit.

Uranus and the Kundalini   Leave a comment

Uranus’ influence is over the 4th and 5th chakras, where the influence of Pluto extends from the 2nd to the 6th chakra as a representation of the souls journey through life and Neptune extends from the 6th to the 7th as a representation of preparing to understand that life and leave it behind Uranus influencing the 4th and 5th chakra is about realising we have access to the universal love and wisdom by the virtue of our soul being created from it and able to reconnect with the source.  Uranus is all about understanding who we really are and the purpose of our individual lives on earth.  Uranus represents the beginning of the journey home in the realisation that we are part of the light of unconditional love each of us with a role to play whilst alive on mother earth we have our own unique path to follow and a purpose in being.

Uranus represents accessing our spiritual gifts and understanding how to connect with the divine love and wisdom available to us all.  Uranus is the first vital steps the soul takes, And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.  Love never fails; but if there are gifts of prophecy, they will be done away; if there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be done away.  And if I give all my possessions to feed the poor, and if I surrender my body to be burned, but do not have love, it profits me nothing.  Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant,  does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered.  “Sing the song of celestial love, O singer!  May the divine fountain of eternal grace and joy enter your soul.  May Brahma, (the Divine One),  Pluck the strings of your inner soul with His celestial fingers,  And feel His own presence within.  Bless us with a divine voice  That we may tune the harp-strings of our life To sing songs of Love to you.” (Rig Veda)

“Meditating on the lotus of your heart,
in the center is the untainted;
the exquisitely pure, clear, and sorrowless;
the inconceivable;
the unmanifest,
of infinite form;
blissful, tranquil, immortal;
the womb of Brahma.”
(Kaivalyopanishad)

Uranus influence over the 4th chakra the womb of Brahma or the wedding chamber in Christianity represents its ability to reconnect with the divine universal love and for that energy to grow inside of us and for us to become one with it.  The 4th Chakra is said to contain what is carried on from past lives by Hindus or for Christians and others that do not believe in reincarnation it can be said to contain what we take with us at the moment of death, the love we have for each other.  The 5th Chakra represents the wisdom that is shared by all of humanity in all our own unique experiences of life.

Uranus in aspect to the Sun,

denotes the opportunity to understand that we are all individuals yet we are also all one person God or the divine in a myriad of forms.  The ego has the opportunity to understand its uniqueness has a purpose and a reason; to understand it was created to follow its own unique path in life as part of a higher purpose.  The ego also has an opportunity to understand that the need for attention is merely an aspect of the need to feel connected once more to the unconditional universal love and wisdom it came from.  The ego here has the opportunity to feel healed and completed by accessing this divine energy, these individuals can also help heal other egos by helping them reconnect to the unconditional love and compassion that is felt for them and giving them a sense of their own unique worth and value as divine beings. This aspect relates to the 3rd, 4th  and 5th chakras working in harmony to create a strong sense of who the person is in relation to their connection to the divine.

Uranus in aspect to the moon,

denotes the opportunity to understand that we are all part of one family and interconnected to each other through the miracle of life.  The opportunity here is to develop unconditional love for others as part of understanding we are all brothers and sisters connected by the divine spirit of love that dwells in our soul.  The opportunity to reconnect with the wisdom and beliefs of our ancestors is also accentuated.  Here the understanding that we are individuals with our own thoughts, needs and personality develops into the understanding that we all need to be loved as part of our family, community and the human story.  There is an understanding that can be reached of the complex wisdom and love that encompasses all of humanity and is only ever equal to all of mankind’s individual components.  The merchant banker contains the same spiritual wisdom and love as the Guru, the homeless person contains the same worth and benefit to society as the doctor.

Uranus in aspect to Mercury,

denotes a strong 5th chakra energy with the opportunity to develop greater understanding of the divine wisdom that surrounds us.  The individual has the ability to use the reason, love and wisdom he was born with to develop a strong ability to discern how he can best use his talents to create a better more humane society for all whether that be by practical means such as medicine or engineering, alternatively they may choose more abstract forms through which raising questions and challenging the beliefs and ideas of society may be part of art, politics or other arenas.  These individuals may have a strong inner voice that adds strength and dynamism to all they say and do.  In the system of the Sufi Lataif-e-sitta there are no Lataif in the throat, but there are three in the region of the heart which are arranged horizontally and not vertically. They are the galb or heart, which is the battleground between the lower forces of the Nafs and the higher forces of the Ruh or spirit; the Ruh which is said by some to be situated on the right hand side of the chest; and Sirr, or secret, between them both in the middle of the chest.  Lower forces of the Naf are the first three Chakras the 1st the realisation of physical battle of survival that all life shares, the 2nd the cycle of life and creativity to which all forms of life share and the 3rd the ego and emotional self or psyche that sets us apart from all other life.  Sirr or the secret would relate to the 5th Chakra where wisdom allows us to understand the importance of the lower chakras and to blend these vital energies with the energy of unconditional love within the heart chakra to form reason and wisdom that understands that real unconditional love and wisdom means accepting the importance of all these energies in everybody for without sustenance  of these chakras the soul or heart chakra withers.

Uranus in aspect to Venus

denotes strong 4th house energy with the opportunity to understand and feel the unconditional love that is felt for each individual.  Through their own experiences these individuals understand the importance of feeling loved and feeling part of the human family valued for their own unique wisdom and insights.  The heart wheel in Tibbetan Buddhismis the location of the indestructible red-and-white drop. At death the winds of the body dissolve and enter this drop, which then leaves the body into Bardo(the intermediate stage) and rebirth.  On the Tree of Life the central sephirah (Tiphereth) is associated with the heart.  Christian kabbalists, in particular, associate this sephirah with love, healing and Jesus Christ.  In Qiqong, the middle Dantian (one of the three furnaces which transform energy in the body) is in this region. The middle Dantian transforms qi energy into Shen (spiritual energy).  The heart chakra is the point at which the energies of life and the lower chakras meet the energy of eternal and unconditional love that survives the cycle of life.  Thus the heart chakra is the source of spiritual understanding, through which we reach the wisdom of the 5th chakra and the insight and intuition of the 6th before realising the potential of our own eternal love in the 7th.  Individuals thus have the potential to develop the strength of the chakras above the heart when their heart chakra provides a sound and solid foundation from which to develop from.

Uranus in aspect to Mars

denotes the opportunity to balance the needs of the physical body that all life shares with the development of unconditional love and wisdom for all humanity individuals have the opportunity to use their unconditional love and wisdom to create a better environment where the needs of others in regards to food and shelter especially are understood as being of primary importance to their spiritual development as well as their physical.  The Muladhara is the foundation energy and base of all the chakra energies when this chakra is strong and stable it provides a secure foundation from which the other chakras can develop and grow.  The Muladhara is ruled by Mars and Saturn, Uranus in aspect to Mars gives vitality and energy that stems from the root chakra and ascends through the chakras to the heart and throat chakra giving the opportunity to strengthen and vitalise both the heart and throat chakra.  There is the opportunity to be very proactive in spreading a message of uncoditional love and wisdom to our fellow man.

Uranus in aspect to Jupiter

denotes the opportunity to develop the understanding of being part of the natural cycle and the process of creation as part of the inner wisdom of life and the wonder of living.  Jupiter and Pluto rule the 2nd chakra the Swadhisthana.  Western kabbalists make the kabbalistic association of Swadhisthana with the Sephirah Yessod, Yesod is also associated with the sexual organs. Its function in the tree of life is to gather the different energies that have been created in the descent of the tree downwards and distribute them to Malkuth, the material world, where the energy can find physical expression.  The energy of creation, life and mother earth is seated in the 2nd chakra and Jupiter in aspect to Uranus give the opportunity to understand the potential of life and to develop love for our fellow man and wisdom based on the understanding of our shared wisdom and love made material.  Those with this aspect may feel very close to nature and mother earth as well as having the opportunity to develop strong healing potential through words and love.

Uranus in aspect to Pluto,

denotes the ability to reach the realisation that whilst we are all unique we are all connected and one through the origins of our soul in the universal unconditional love it was created from.  The soul realises that it is not physical in being but is created from pure love and can access the love that created it, that it can heal its wounds through this connection and remain eternally alive.  the soul here learns to understand that it is perfect containing the love and wisdom from which it came from and learns to express and share this love and wisdom with others.  The individual here has the opportunity to share the love and wisdom of their soul with others and to experience the wisdom and love of others.

Kundalini and Neptune   Leave a comment

Neptune’s influence is over the last two chakras of the kundalini. Neptune meets the soul or Pluto at the Ajna chakra where the soul works with Neptune to form an understanding of the purpose of its life, this energy is felt throughout life as we try to make sense of the world around us and our role in it.  In later years we reflect on our life and prepare to let go of what was, this reflection of who we are and what we have contributed helps us feel more confident of moving on to the final step.  The last chakra is ruled by Neptune alone and it is here we are ready to leave the physical world and reunite with the light of eternal unconditional love once more.

Neptune represents returning to the universal unconditional love that the soul came from and returns to but that source is felt throughout our lives in many ways pushing us towards our purpose in life at times and teaching us through trials at other times.  Neptune requires us to live our lives to our full potential in the understanding that they are gifts that should be appreciated for the wonder that they contain.  It teaches that simply being alive is a wondrous experience, that in existence we are spiritual merely by being part of life on mother earth.  Neptune’s message is that we were born spiritually perfect full of the light of unconditional love.  That this light was always meant to return to its source as the physical body returns once more to the earth.

Whilst we are here however Neptune offers us many opportunities to understand the purpose of our path, the ability to experience the wondrous and the tragic in order to understand the purpose of being human.

Neptune in aspect to the Sun,

denotes learning about the importance of the ego through working towards a positive self understanding, that denies not the ego nor its power to influence but instead reaches an understanding and ability to see its influence in our actions and curtail them when necessary.  There is the opportunity to reach an understanding that the ego is part of life and that it is not something to escape or overcome just as life is not something to be escaped or overcome but embraced and understood for the wondrous opportunity it provides.  The ego provides the opportunity to know ourselves as unique individuals to understand that we are worthwhile and priceless simply by being in existence.  The sports person who achieves Gold and is then forgotten is an example of this journey of learning that there is nothing permanent in what we achieve there will always be someone who is faster, smarter, younger, prettier than we are, only when we value who we are not on our temporary achievements but on being part of this dynamic earth can we feel complete.  When we have come to terms with who we are in relation to our ego, it is easier for us to finally let go of who we were and embrace our death as a natural part of the cycle of returning to the light.  Neptune here is bringing the energies of the 3rd chakra into focus and defining their purpose in relation to the ego.

Neptune in Aspect to moon,

denotes learning to value the bonds of love that connect us to each other through the family, that understands the trauma of being excluded from that love, the pain and misery this causes and understanding the need for all to feel included loved and valued.  There is an opportunity to reach out to others to include them as part of our family and embrace their differences positively.  The moon provides an opportunity to understand who we are as part of a family, a culture and a living history.  We come from the land of our ancestors mother earth and we trace the same footsteps on the same journey through life as they once did.  We have the opportunity to connect with the past and the future as part of the dynamic aspect of life.  We travel the same journey as they once did and we learn from their experiences and stories and pass those on to future generations as they begin the journey through life.  When we have come to the journey’s end we have an opportunity to reconnect to those ancestors who walked before us and become one with them in the light of universal love.  Neptune here is bringing the energies of the 3rd chakra into focus and defining their purpose in relation to the ego and the family.

Neptune in aspect to Mercury,

denotes learning about the different sources of knowledge and valuing them all, all who have walked before us have their own tale of their journey and what they have learnt along the way whether that was scientific, spiritual, philosophical, cultural they are all a source of valuable information.  There is an opportunity for the individual to find their own voice and begin telling their own unique story of what they have learnt from their ancestors and on their own journey through life.  Mercury provides an opportunity to understand we are all part of the one same story with our own individual wisdom and knowledge to share with each other.    Mercury gives us an opportunity to connect to all sources of wisdom and to understand their importance as part of the rich cultural heritage we all share as human beings.  When we come to the journey’s end Mercury’s understanding give us the opportunity to realise where the path leads and to be open and accepting of returning once more to the light of love.  Neptune here is bringing the energies of the 5th chakra into focus and defining their purpose in relation to seeking and giving wisdom.

Neptune in aspect to Venus,

denotes learning to develop our capacity to love and express affection towards each other openly and honestly, to understand our own intense need for love and affection and to be willing to accept and meet that need in other souls.  There is an opportunity to develop the ability to open up emotionally to others and share real love and compassion with them, this gift has real ability to heal others who have experienced rejection and pain in their life.  The soul learns through loving others that it is connected to the source of all love, that in accessing this love and compassion it breathes life into its own soul as well as that of others.  The knowledge of the power of this connection helps the individual understand that death is nothing to fear for their soul will live as long as it is connected to universal love and it can return home to it when it leaves the body.  Neptune here is bringing the energies of the 4th chakra into focus and defining their purpose in relation to understanding the power of unconditional love.

Neptune in aspect to Mars,

denotes understanding the precious gift of life and the opportunity to walk the same path as our ancestors, we are alive and part of mother earth that physically being part of the living earth is a precious and great gift that offers us the unique ability to feel the wind upon our skin and taste the rain on our lips.  There is the opportunity here to teach others that life is a precious resource that must not be wasted and to help them live life to the fullest.  The knowledge that we have lived a fulfilling and rich life prepares us to understand it is time for that precious opportunity to end and to accept the next stage without regret of missed opportunities and untaken chances in life. The soul has the opportunity to understand it has done what it came to do and that this wondrous experience will travel with them in the love and passion they share as part of the universal light.  Neptune here is bringing the energies of the 1st chakra into focus and defining their purpose in relation to understanding the precious gift of life.

Neptune in aspect to Jupiter,

denotes understanding the miracle of life and the wonders of the world that surround us, we are alive and in a world filled with wonders and natural miracles that inspire awe and faith.  The recognition of the wonders of life and the beauty that surrounds us helps us to appreciate the great opportunity we have as living beings and inspires us to respect mother earth as the source of wonder and amazement.  There is the opportunity to share this wonder and enthusiasm with others and when we enrich their world by sharing the joy and miraculous wonders with them they are also able to share their joy and wonder with us and we connect with each other as being exceptionally gifted to have shared the experience of living.  The soul has the opportunity to explore the many wonders of the world around it and to fill itself with awe inspired memories of nature, children and family that become part of the soul itself and travel with it on the next step of the journey, having experienced this joy and wonder it is easier for it to accept it has had its full share and can move on without regrets of what it has missed.  Neptune here is bringing the energies of the 2nd chakra into focus and defining their purpose in relation to understanding the precious gift of life is miraculous and awe-inspiring part of who we are.

Neptune in aspect to Saturn,

Kundalini and Pluto   Leave a comment

Pluto has the longest journey of the outer planets through the Kundalini and the reason for this is it represents our soul’s journey from the moment of birth through to the acceptance of death.  Pluto’s journey begins at the second chakra where the recognition of being alive and what that means to be part of the natural cycle of life begins. It journey’s through the third chakra where it realises it is unique with its own inner thoughts and emotions that are separate from others to the fourth where it has the opportunity to feel the connection to the universal unconditional love that is available to all.  From here it realises this unconditional love gives it access to wisdom and understanding of the fifth chakra before its final destination at the 6th chakra where it realises the inner potential it shares with all of humanity as a living and spiritual being here the soul has the opportunity to come to terms with its faults and imperfections in preparation for death where it can join the universal love once more.

It is important to note that the soul is perfect and is a mirror image of the universal unconditional love that some call God.  It cannot be born at different stages of development as perfection cannot be improved upon.  Your soul is not called to perfect but to understand the importance of the journey, to learn different lessons and put these experiences into practice to help others on the journey through life, to help heal the wounds their soul may have experienced and to heal your own.

The sign, house and aspects that Pluto makes all highlight this journey and the potential opportunities it has for growth as it passes these stages of life.  Dynamic aspects with Pluto and other Planets / Nodes denote powerful opportunities to learn and evolve that may be hard for the individual but will give them many talents and gifts they may develop.  Harmonious aspects also give these opportunities but are less intense experiences that the soul goes through.

Pluto in aspect to the sun,

denotes learning the importance of realising our need to be valued and appreciated by others, of the need to find balance between the needs of the ego and the need to connect to the universal love that bonds and unites us as one.  The gift of this aspect is an awareness of the ego as a necessary part of who we are that must be viewed honestly if we are to develop an ability to open our heart and love unconditionally the divine spirit that resides in us all.  The ego is necessary part of our humanity but it must be developed and nurtured appropriately for it can usurp the energy of the heart chakra and starve its development.  Here there is the opportunity to understand the need to feel valued and appreciated is part of the need to feel loved unconditionally and that this love is not dependent in what we accomplish in life but in being born human.

Pluto in aspect to moon,

denotes learning the importance of emotions and connections to those we love.  This is a necessary stage in which the soul learns the pain of love, loss, birth and death.  Through understanding the fear of loss and the separation from loved ones, the soul understand the preciousness of the time we have together on earth and the importance of showing love and affection to those close to us.  This understanding of the importance of love for the development of loved ones ego and self-confidence gives us greater insight into our own development.  The soul has the opportunity of understanding the power of unconditional love through the family.

Pluto in aspect to mercury,

denotes learning an understanding off the purpose of spiritual wisdom or the wisdom of unconditional love.  The soul learns that it already knows all it ever needed to know, that it was born with inner wisdom and that it must quieten the negative voice that says it can’t and learn to trust the voice that tells it; it already knows the answers, that they reside deep within them already.  The soul learns to trust that what they need to know will be revealed to them and that what is not revealed is not meant for them to know.  The opportunity to understand that unconditional universal love is the source of all wisdom and we all have an access to that wisdom when needed may be developed here and much insight reached.  The soul has the potential of understanding that we were all born enlightened, that this knowledge was always inside of them.

Pluto in aspect to Venus,

denotes learning to accept our insecurities as humans and to recognise the power of unconditional love to heal those fears and wounds.  The soul has the opportunity to develop its capacity to love and to heal itself through accessing the universal unconditional love it senses.  The soul has the opportunity to understand the importance of love in remaining spiritually alive, only through access to universal love can the soul heal and develop.  Once the soul has accessed this energy it is able to heal and aid others whose souls have been injured through life.

 

Pluto in aspect to Mars,

denotes learning to appreciate the gift of life and recognising the need to value the experiences life offers us as precious.  The soul has the opportunity to understand the passionate expressions and desires felt are part of the gift of life.  The senses are only felt as part of life even pain itself is unique to living, breathing beings, the delight in physically being and the senses may be strong and the instinctual protection of that life and ability.  The instinct to create new life and to be a complete part of the circle of life may also be strong.  The individual has the opportunity to understand that life is a precious gift and every moment of it should be used to its fullest advantage.

Pluto in aspect to Jupiter,

denotes the appreciation and joy the soul feels in recognising it is alive, it has a body and can experience the miracle of life.  The soul often expresses this joy by indulging in the senses, touch, smell, taste, sound and vision are gifts of life and here the soul often marvels at the wonderous and awe-inspiring delight they can bring.  The soul recognises the wonders that surrounds it and often feels pure joy simply in living and being. This enthusiasm leads it to want to connect with other souls who share this joy and wonder.  The individual here has the opportunity to express their joy and passion for life with others and to renew their wonder by experiencing the many natural miracles of life.

Pluto in aspect Saturn,

denotes the ability to reach the realisation that they are alive and from birth they feel the intense drive to breath, the pain of cold air against skin and the warmth of their mother’s touch.  The soul realises it is in a physical body and feels the intense needs to eat, sleep and be warm.  The soul understands that when it falls it hurts that to be alive is to be physically connected to pain and pleasure.  The soul here is very aware of the physical world around them and that the consequences of their actions and those of others have real effects.  The individual here has the opportunity to help others realise that all we do has consequences for others.  These individuals can help others to consider the effects their actions have on the world around them.

Pluto in aspect to Uranus,

denotes the ability to reach the realisation that whilst we are all unique we are all connected and one through the origins of our soul in the universal unconditional love it was created from.  The soul realises that it is not physical in being but is created from pure love and can access the love that created it, that it can heal its wounds through this connection and remain eternally alive.  the soul here learns to understand that it is perfect containing the love and wisdom from which it came from and learns to express and share this love and wisdom with others.  The individual here has the opportunity to share the love and wisdom of their soul with others and to experience the wisdom and love of others.

Pluto in aspect to Neptune,

Pluto ends its journey with Neptune at the 6th chakra, this aspect denotes learning to balance the many aspects of being physically alive with the progression towards returning to the light of eternal love that was the source of our soul.  This is a journey we take through out our lives and it reflects the stages of childhood and adult life through which we progress and develop as children, parents siblings and contributors to society we are constantly changing and reflecting.  This aspect takes a lifetime of trials and lessons after which the soul must be prepared to leave this physical world behind.  This aspect is very common because we all face death and the soul is more prepared if it feels it has made a difference, either through raising offspring or by contributing to society.

Planets and the Kundalini   Leave a comment

How developing an understanding of your planets and their aspects helps unlock the energy of the Kundalini.  The Kundalini is split into two types of energy the first is the energy of life, this is the energy that expresses what it is like to be alive and part of a living dynamic earth it is equal and as important as the second energy that of the spirit.

first chakra or energy is Muladhara, this connects us to the earth as our mother, gives us an understanding of the precious gift of life.  The Muladhara is the awareness that we are alive, that this is precious and temporary.  This energy is the energy of Mars and Saturn, we are alive and what we do has real effects and consequences, we feel real pain, happiness, sadness and misery.  Mars rules our fight or flight energy which is a large part of the Muladhara energy the realisation that life is impermanent and we need to take steps to remain alive by avoiding danger or fighting for life itself.  It is in the fight to live we learn of the precious gifts life offers, the smell of fresh rain on grass, the taste of ripe strawberries, the feel of sand beneath the toes, the beauty of sunset, the sound of bubbling brooks.  The colour of this Chakra and its energy is blood red symbolising life.

The Second Chakra Svadisthana, this connects us to the fertility of the earth as part of its cycle of growth death and regeneration.  The Svadisthana is awareness that life is short and we are part of a perpetual cycle of birth, reproduction, sickness and death.  This is the energy of Pluto and Jupiter, we are alive and we have a short time but a short time which is too precious to waste, we have much to enjoy whilst we are here and we should make the most of this time and use it to its fullest for tomorrow we may die and all opportunities are gone.  This is the realisation that as part of the cycle we too must end and we have an opportunity to love, share, feel and express our life.  We can create new life through our children or through our creative expression but we can create life because we are alive and that is joyous and precious state that should be appreciated.  The colour of this Chakra is orange symbolising the fire of life that burns within us all.

The third chakra manipuraka, this is our awareness of being part of this planet and yet a separate entity all of our own with our own thoughts, ideas and emotions.  The manipuraka is the awareness that we are a separate individual part of a whole which we need to learn to relate with and communicate.  This is the energy of the Sun and moon, that says we are aware and sentient that we feel and think as separate unique individuals.  Here we learn to filter our instinctual thoughts and emotions and learn to develop our own unique understanding and perspectives on life.  We become conscious of who we are as individuals we understand that we are unique and precious because we exist and in doing so we understand that we are all unique and precious simply by existing.  The colour of this chakra is yellow symbolising the light of the sun and its light reflected by the moon.

The fourth Chakra Anahata-puri, this is our spiritual connection to mother earth and the universe, through this link we can connect to the unconditional love some call God, this chakra is essential in developing the others that follow without proper development it is impossible to develop the others.  This energy is the energy of Venus and Uranus, through opening our heart to the unconditional love and compassion we have access to the higher mind of God and the universe, with access to this love we are able to heal others and ourselves on a soul level.  This chakra is vital because without connection to the universal unconditional love that exists we face what some Christians would call the second death or as Tibetan Buddhists would say we lose the home of the indestructible consciousness that we carry beyond death.  When we reconnect physically with the earth or emotionally with the divine and unconditional love we strengthen this bond and we also provide access needed to develop the further chakras.  The colour of this Chakra is green or pink symbolising its eternal life giving energy.

The fifth Chakra  Vishuddhi, this is our connection to the wisdom of mother earth and the universe, through this link we can understand that for everything their is a purpose, we can express the unconditional love and compassion of the Anahata-puri.  This connects us to divine thought and inspiration.  This energy is the energy of Mercury and Uranus, through opening our hearts to the unconditional love the universe contains through the Anahata-puri we can open our minds to connect with the universal wisdom through the Vishuddhi we can begin to understand the path we have chosen to follow in life and the wisdom we were meant to develop and understand through the many events and trials in life we develop the maturity needed to see these events as giving us precious gifts and abilities needed for our growth and development.  The colour of this chakra and energies is blue symbolising the depth of wisdom and eternal love contained within the universe.

The sixth Chakra is the Ajna, this is where we learn to balance both our spiritual and physical gifts, when we accept we are both and as such they are equally precious parts of who we are we are able to balance the needs of our physical bodies with the needs of the spirit, the need to be valued and recognised with the need to be spiritually honest.  This is the energy of Pluto and Neptune, where we develop an understanding of our spiritual journey as living fallible beings who as such are all loved unconditionally and who all have the same spiritual value regardless of our faults and mistakes as human beings.  Here we learn to trust the message of unconditional love as connecting all of us and through understanding the duality of our own nature we understand this truth is part of all of humanity.  Here we learn to trust our intuitive connection to God and the rest of humanity through our mutual connection to the divine love of the universe.  We learn that all souls are merely an expression of divine love felt and expressed through individual consciousness that can at anytime reconnect with the source of love within each other and the universe.  To trust the connection and its purpose in our lives.  The colour of this chakra is purple/violet and white symbolising the unity of pure love with the divine spirit of humanity within us all.

The seventh Chakra Sahasrara, this is where we understand the full potential of unconditional love as eternal expression of the soul which survives death, this love is what reunites with the universal love to become one after death, this is the bridal chamber of Christianity where we reconnect with the divine universal love that gave spiritual birth to us and the 1000 petalled lotus of Buddhism / hinduism that symbolises rebirth in the Pure Land.  This energy is of Neptune, this dissolves our individual views and perceptions and reconnects us to our original as part of the divine love, we realise we are all one aspect of universal love and there has never been a separation that we have always been universal love, that all of us are universal love and all of us are mirror images of each other and the divine.  The colour of this chakra and energy is white symbolising the realisation of the perfect love and divine residing within us all.

Understanding these energies brings consciousness of the dynamics of the chart.  The dynamics of Saturn and Mars in the natal chart are to help us develop an appreciation of the gift of life, trials in these areas give us the gifts of understanding this importance for ourselves and others.  Dynamic aspects help us develop an appreciation of the value of physical existence, and the importance of life.
