2019. Heaven on Earth – Bliss.

Jan 7, 2019   //   by Carol Hastings   //   Blog  //  Comments Off on 2019. Heaven on Earth – Bliss.

2019 in numerology becomes No 12 which then becomes No 3.  It is a 19 year which is the bottle of Buddhic bliss and then 19=10. The number 10 colour bottle is the Wheel of Fortune.

This is a year of massive change and new beginnings. The old regimes are continuing to fall away and the dark energies are being exposed for what they are. Now is the time to continue with the clean up and also look at better ways to protect our planet from contamination and abuse. We are being asked to pay particular attention to the Oceans and Sea-life this year.

We are the Caretakers of our planet Earth. (Gaia) We are the change that we have been waiting for. Now is the time to take action. Let us all work together for a blissful heaven on earth and create our own abundance!


19. Buddhic Bliss (Pale Magenta / Pale Gold)

Buddhic Bliss

Resurrection and new beginnings. This is a most positive colour combination as the magenta denotes Divine love lit up and shining upon you and the pale gold underneath denotes a deep sense of your own power and beauty. You have come through the dark night of the soul and now it is time to own heaven’s blessings of joy and love. You are the power in your life and everyone would agree with you at this point. Enjoy this time of peace and plenty.

2019 in numerology becomes No 12 which then becomes No 3.


No 12 -Heaven on Earth (Violet / Red)

Heaven on Earth.

Heaven on Earth (Violet / Red)

In the Tarot number 12 is the Hangman which is a man hanging upside down but with this bottle we have the colours the right way up. We have the violet above the red and so heaven above earth. We also have the crown above the base, implying that everything in between those two is also in its proper place. And yet with this bottle we are asked to look at what we believe about our world that is not perfect. This bottle helps us clear all our beliefs about where the world has not lived up to our expectations of perfection. It provides us with the opportunity to look at what we are still judging as not heaven and therefore not part of the Divine. Where are we not perfect and where is the world not perfect? What is keeping us from living in heaven on earth? Use this bottle and let it show you what your core belief is that is keeping you from living a perfect life.


The Pantone ‘Colour of the year’ for 2019 is coral…. as 2019 is a ‘3’ year and our bottle No 3 Jupiter, is of course, coral!

No 3 Jupiter

Huge, expansive and powerful. This bottle resonates with the new Christ Ray. The colours indicate love (pink) and wisdom (yellow) to make the coral. It is a colour that indicates a move away from old patterns of giving power away and to reclaiming who you are and what you’re for fearlessly. This is a time of finally standing up and saying: “This is who I am on the planet”.

When we are able to do that with conviction the universe will support us with its blessings and Jupiter’s beneficence will be felt in our lives. This could be a time of great blessings when we unconditionally accept ourselves with love and compassion.


Then to top it all off we have the Wheel of Fortune colour bottle which is an indication of how the year could work for not only you but also for planet Earth.

No 10- Wheel of Fortune.(Gold / Olive)

bottle 10 Wheel of Fortune

This number relates to Isis, the goddess who gave birth to the sun. The wheel has turned and now it is time for the wisdom, to which gold relates, to be in our conscious minds so that we might activate the feminine power within – the power and the light. Olive is the green of the heart mixed with the gold in the solar plexus – our power centre. When power connects to love it can never be abused and it will always be a soft, feminine power. This bottle relates to an Egyptian lifetime and asks you to remember who you were at that time. This power can be reactivated for you now as you stand before great changes in your life. You can do it. You have everything you need to make it work. Trust your heart.

Year of the Pig 2019 : a year of fortune and luck!

This follows on from the above post….Our Colour Bottle No 10… is “The Wheel of Fortune” what a coincidence!

According to the chinese astrology , 2019 is a great year to make money, and a good year to invest! 2019 is going to be full of joy, a year of friendship and love for all the zodiac signs; an auspicious year because the Pig attracts success in all the spheres of life.

The Pig is also associated with the Earth and the hours 9–11 in the night. In terms of yin and yang , the Pig is yin. In Chinese culture, pigs are the symbol of wealth. Pigs have a beautiful personality and are blessed with good fortune in life.

2018 – Spiritual and Material Conflict.

Jan 25, 2018   //   by Carol Hastings   //   Blog  //  Comments Off on 2018 – Spiritual and Material Conflict.

Spiritual and Material Conflict.

This year is very much about Gaia, the Earth.  After all our hard work of last year we are now being asked to keep ourselves grounded on Gaia, Earth and step into our true path. To enable us to stay strong in our power we must remain grounded into the earth and balanced.

Spiritual and Material Conflict

18. Spiritual and Material Conflict (Red / Rose Pink)

This is a difficult vibration because it denotes confusion and a struggle. One often feels betrayed when this number comes up. Notice what blocks you from bringing heaven to earth and notice where you still betray yourself by not believing that you are the “I AM”. These colours are all about bringing heaven to earth, the earth being the red, the lowest vibration where we hold onto what is REAL. Your health, money and relationships are all the real things in your life. This is the last bit of illusion that needs to be overcome so that you might see them as part of your spiritual journey and the way back to the Allness. This bottle indicates a lifetime as a nun or monk.

The number 18 also becomes the number 9 in numerology. This is the mars bottle.


bottle 9 Mars

Powerful and warlike, Mars is the source of our fire energy. Use it wisely to change what needs changing rather than just being angry and frustrated. These colours urge you not to spend your life being meek and angry. Say what needs saying rather than holding grudges that endlessly play in your head as “I should have said”. Mars is a powerful ally when things need to be set in motion. Now is the moment for drastic action. This bottle will energise you so you can do and say what needs doing and saying.


2018 is the Year of the Fire and Ice War.

The beginning of the year started with extended Snow and Ice and into the summer months there are widespread Fires and earthquakes.  2018 is the year where Gaia is taking back her power and saying “Enough is Enough, stop abusing me”! If the people on earth do not heed her we will be having more extreme weather conditions.


In Chinese astrology, 2018 is the year of the DOG.

“The Dog’s duty is to guard the farmland and expel the intruders. When seeing the Rabbits, Dog will chase the Rabbits. Rabbits live underground and have amazing fertility. They can reproduce the next generation very quickly. Dog cannot expel Rabbit away therefore Dog will slowly adapt to the Rabbit and they will find their way to get along together.

Rabbit is in the Wood group and is the Female Wood, which is connected to the grass or climbing vine. Dog is in the Earth group. It’s the Male Earth, which is connected to the hill and mountain. Grass can propagate the next generation, extend its territory, and then cover the hill. But to cover the entire hill or mountain is not easy. Rabbit has to work very hard.

Rabbit month is March and Dog month is October. Rabbit is the Wood (tree) in the spring. Dog is the Earth is the fall. Dog is the stage of mound or tall wall. Using the talent, Rabbit knows how to decorate the stage for Dog. Rabbit brings Dog the youth and vitality.

In the Chinese Five Element theory, Wood overcomes Earth. Earth is the Wood’s trophy. Earth becomes the Wood’s property. Therefore, Dog Earth represents money to Rabbit Wood. That means Dog will bring money luck to Rabbit.

Rabbit and Dog together, they have attraction relationship into Fire. Fire represents the performance and fame of Rabbit. That implies Dog also brings good reputation to Rabbit.

The Dog month is the last month of the autumn which tells us the winter is coming. Rabbit is connected to grass, tender leaf or flower, which are afraid of winter. During cold winter, the grass or vine will wither and even dry up and die. Therefore, you need to finish every project on schedule. You need to work harder and save extra before winter comes.”

Earth – Copper.

EarthG5. Earth WisdomG5-Earth Wisdom



Instantly grounding and connecting to Gaia and all the Earth elements, this essence helps us feel our heartbeat in tune with the heartbeat of the planet. We are of the earth and all that we create is of the earth too. This essence helps us release judgement around abusing the planet and allows us to see that all is one. Manifestation is truly possible when we ground our spirit. A deep connection with the earth can be deeply reassuring and nurturing. She is always there, a true example of unconditional love. When our bodies feel safe, so our spirits can allow their Divine essence into the world.

I also feel that G5 plays a part in 2018.

G5. Earth Wisdom (Gold / Copper)

This is a time for a power shift from the masculine to the feminine and for all beings it is time to let the feminine side feel powerful again. This will stop the abuse of power that we have experienced during a patriarchal rule. Claim your creativity and your ability to be God and stop playing God. Be everything you have come to be on this planet and claim it as your home. Find the golden wisdom in your connection with the earth and begin to live the golden age. It is here now.

The Tide of Change:

In numerology 2018 becomes 11= 2

No 2 represents The Moon.

bottle 2-oilsThis bottle relates to the energy of the moon, tides, seasons and cycles of existence. It corresponds to the throat, choice and taking responsibility for your word. This bottle is helpful for difficulties with communication and making yourself heard. Blue is the colour of peace, protection and connection with the Angelic realms. When you choose these colours you are asked to feel this blue cloak of protection enfolding you and to know that you are looked after. So far very few of your fears have manifested so begin to have faith that what has kept you safe up to now will continue to do so.  Blue guides you to a place of trust where you begin to see all of life as part of the Oneness and that there really is nothing and no one to fear.

Summing up… great year for personal growth. Stop resisting, let go of fear, surrender to who you really are, allow the flow and work with the universe, step up and change your reality. Do your shadow work, let go of everything toxic in your life , concenteate on personal health and healthy diet and become the Divine being you truly are.


Have a prosperous, healthy and magical 2018 everyone!

2016 Year of the Fire Monkey.

Mar 7, 2016   //   by Carol Hastings   //   Blog  //  Comments Off on 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey.


On the  Chinese calendar it is the year of the Fire Monkey.

Interesting that in numerology that 2016 = 9. This is going to be an intense year. A lot of core stuff to be dealt with on a planetary scale. There will be huge planetary cleansing on all levels.

Number 9 in Colour Mirrors is “Mars”, Red and Orange. This bottle is very much like the fire monkey.  Powerful and warlike, Mars is the source of our fire energy. Use it wisely to change what needs changing rather than just being angry and frustrated. These colours urge you not to spend your life being meek and angry. Say what needs saying rather than holding grudges that endlessly play in your head as “I should have said”.                            Mars is a powerful ally when things need to be set in motion. Now is the moment for drastic action. This bottle will energise you so that you can do and say what needs doing and saying.

bottle 9 Mars

This 16th year becomes Number 16 and in our Colour Mirrors is “The Tower”.


The Tower.

The Tower (Olive / Lilac)

The image of the Tarot card is of a tower struck by lightning and a body falling which is the exact image we saw on September 11, 2001. The meaning of the card and bottle is therefore very closely linked to what it is we are living through at the moment. We all seem to be on the path of the tower in some way or another. In our own situation it is the explosion of the structures we hold onto because we believe them to be our comfort zones even though they are no longer serving us. The colours, lilac and olive green, are a clear indication of this vibration – it is your spirit (lilac) that needs you to move for your greater good so that you might begin to function with love (green) rather than from fear (yellow). This says that your spirit will never let you down. You are now being taken seriously as a spiritual being having a human experience and wherever change takes you it will always be perfect.


With all the turmoil that is going on in the world at this time this bottle is even more significant. As the old structures fall away some may be feeling confused or a bit lost. Green reflects change and the feminine aspect and our planet is moving through massive changes on all levels, including women once again refusing to be continually persecuted and abused. ( especially in the 3rd world)  Earth (Gaia) is regenerating and evolving,   constantly clearing all man made toxins and pollution from the earth, oceans, rivers and sky. The extreme weather patterns of late are an indication of the cleansing and clearing which is affecting this beautiful planet earth. We as caretakers are responsible for our planet and it is up to us to do all we can to preserve it and that means we have to find new sources of clean energy, stop the overwhelming abundance of plastic pollution which ends up in the oceans destroying wildlife and many other issues.

Lilac , opposite of the yellow, indicates forgiveness, nurturing and releasing of fear based emotions. With so many displaced people in this world, fear is a strong vibration at this time. So for this year “The Tower” is teaching us to let go of the old structures and  habits that no longer serve us and to nurture,  love, and respect ourselves , trusting that all is as it should be. Once we care and improve our own personal health it has a knock on effect to everyone around us! When we love ourselves people around us will also absorb that love and feel loved.

When you throw a pebble into a Lake, the ripples spread out across the surface of the water reaching into all the nooks and crannies. It is the same with our Words. If we are constantly speaking unkind words and even using the word “Hate” then that is what will ripple out into the world. It has been proven many times that you can improve a situation if you speak kind words and include the words of Love.

Speaking kindly words of Love will send ripples out into the world bringing in Peace and even more Love. Namaste.

2014 The year of Turquoise and Coral.

Jan 6, 2014   //   by Carol Hastings   //   Blog  //  Comments Off on 2014 The year of Turquoise and Coral.


This year of 14 in Colour Mirrors is No 14 Movement (Pale Turquoise / Pale Turquoise).

The number 14 is ruled by Mercury – communication and movement. This bottle is about magnetic communication with the public and relates to the media, publishing, television and the internet. The unexpected can happen at any moment. Travel is in the air; good fortune is yours. Soon you will find the sanctuary your spirit calls for.
In numerology, this year becomes No 7- Neptune– who was the Roman god of the sea and rules mystery, spirituality and the depths of the unconscious.

Turquoise relates to mystery, illusion, miracles and faith. If this is your colour, you are always able to hear others troubles and are a great peace-bringer to those suffering difficulties. Clairvoyant and intuitive, it is not easy for you to share your secrets with others so you tend to carry your burdens alone. This is also a time to trust that miracles can happen and that you are on the brink of something wonderful.

14 also becomes No 5- Mercury, this relates to Gemini – movement, communication and versatility. Begin to be the magician and be aware that the old pattern of being the trickster no longer serves you. All has to be upfront and clear in your dealings.

The No 5 is about dealing with issues of discipline and freedom. These colours signify change and new beginnings and are about letting go of all the masks. Everything that you have used to hide behind has to be removed. The truth about your magnificence has to be told clearly and if any part of you still wants to hide, it will make life quite difficult. The answer to the dilemma that these colours present is to be constantly aware of what makes you feel small and to change that.

My feeling for this year is concern for the oceans, the Dolphins and the whales. I have been tuning into the The Dolphin essence, Air essence, which carries the energy of the moon and the cycles and tides, and also the Water essence, (Deep Turquoise) which allows us to connect to the dolphins and whales, those aspects of ourselves that have assisted in keeping the records and holding the energy for earth since the sinking of Atlantis. This is the energy that allows us to feel the joy of existence and it releases our ability to play and have fun – the inner child healed expresses itself through creativity and fun.
Together with their cousins, the Whales, they structure and maintain the Oceanic Grids of the Planet. Their current work is to link the oceanic grids with the land grids in order to expand Human Consciousness.

If Dolphin swims into your life, he is asking you to relish water both physically and mentally, swimming freely and going along with your natural feelings.

Summing up….this is a year of opening up to your true self,  connecting with the higher heart, unconditional love, clearing and clarity, flow and freedom, creating a life that you truly deserve. After all, we are here to have fun and enjoy life!

The complimentary colour of Turquoise is Coral.

Coral is made up of Pink and Yellow. The colours indicate love (pink) and wisdom (yellow) to make the coral. It is a colour that indicates a move away from old patterns of giving power away and to reclaiming who you are and what you are for fearlessly. This is a time of finally standing up and saying: “This is who I am on the planet”.

When we are able to do that with conviction the universe will support us with its blessings and Jupiter’s beneficence will be felt in our lives. This could be a time of great blessings when we unconditionally accept ourselves with love and compassion. No 3 Jupiter is one of our Coral bottles. Huge, expansive and powerful. This bottle resonates with the new Christ Ray.

The Coral Angel essence is the Coral Angel of Manifestation & Magic!

Christabelle helps us feel the wonderment of magic in our lives again. She helps us manifest instantly as we feel it is safe to let go of control and go with the flow. She assists us to stop abuse and bullying, bringing in deep levels of self-acceptance and self-love.

Have you been wondering why your wishes don’t come true? Why the visions of a brighter future are not happening? Whenever we request something new in our life, the universe always answers YES. But it finds it cannot deliver the dream into your reality because you still hold a pattern that says ‘I don’t deserve it because I am not good enough’ or perhaps a pattern of ‘guilt in receiving too much’.

When manifesting your dreams, open up to receiving them with the full knowledge that it is your divine birth right. God did not say go to the planet and suffer and live in limit and lack. God said go and play, it is paradise.
Find a fun way to write down all your wishes, use colour inks, paint images, create vision boards, and hand them over to the Coral Angel of Magic and Manifestation and ask her to remove any blocks you have in receiving them. Coral Angel will help you love yourself enough to receive.

Jul 6, 2013   //   by Carol Hastings   //   Blog  //  Comments Off on THE CHILDREN of NOW.

KRYON :-  The CHILDREN of NOW are meeting the TEACHERS of NOW – 6/6/13



The process has began – The CHILDREN of NOW are meeting the TEACHERS of NOW. 

Your children, the children of now that have come to the earth to assist in the process of ascension, are the ones that are manifesting a lot of light and love into your reality by anchoring this light and love into the hearts of each and every being that they come into contact with physically, ethereally , consciously and subconsciously. 

In order to help them remain in this new type of frequency that they carry with them, we have instituted many teachers into your world. Who are secretly and unbeknownst to your government are communicating with the children of now on a cellular level in light language, and the language of the heart.
Each school on your planet has been supplied with such teachers, and they will know precisely who and what they are. Many of them are walk-ins, many of them are light workers just like you who have chosen a path to incarnate before these children in order to assist the pure energies of light entering the planet at this precise moment in time.Then there are a special class of teachers, who are neither walk-ins, nor light workers, but your own galactic brothers and sisters.. that appear in your schools for a brief moment, these are what you call a “substitute” teacher. Yes indeed dear ones, we come to your children at precise moments in time to bring forth the information that they are in need of and to show them not to be afraid of anything.And so these teachers are touching topics that others simply do not. They are sending these children home filled with love and light. They are reminding the children of who they are, constantly keeping their vibrations high. And although the children of now, know exactly who they are, since they are not plagued by the veil of forgetfulness, just as many of you have, there are still obstacles that they are faced with.

Each child that comes into your world now.. is a star seed.. These children.. are literally the future generation of hybrid beings.. that are going to be completely free from anything that the human ego can possibly throw at them.. for it simply will not exist.. yet .. in order for this process to occur.. many of you who are now awake along with the teachers are going to find that you are drawn to assist these children… in order to keep their vibrations high.

These children are no longer limited by the human misconception of reality.. these children remember who they are.. they know why they have come onto this planet… they remember and know their missions very well… they are free from the veil of forgetfulness .… nevertheless … nevertheless dear ones … the cabal.. that you are all in the know of.. is trying their best to stop the growth, to stop the link that these children have to the divine, in any way shape and form possible. Fear not dear ones, for due to all of your efforts the cabal will not succeed.

Whereas before, when you have arrived on this planet, it was dangerous for us to step in and remind you of who you are until it was time… we have awaited for you to find our own way.. and have assisted you strictly form behind the veil.. now due to all of your efforts in assisting the earth and humanity.. due to all the struggles that you have gone through, each and every single one of you, who had to wake up and break through the veil on your own… due to all this.. it is now possible for us to meet with the children of now face to face… and help them .. help all of YOU!

We love you. We are with you. Goodbye for now.

Sacred Geometry.

Sacred Geometry

Sacred Geometry.

Sacred geometry is an ancient science, a sacred language, and a key to understanding the way the Universe is designed. It is the study of shape and form, wave and vibration, and moving beyond third dimensional reality. It is the language of creation, which exists as the foundation of all matter, and it is the vehicle for spirit.

It has been called the “blueprint for all creation,” the “harmonic configuration of the Soul,” the “divine rhythm which results in manifest experience.” Sacred geometry has the ability to balance human energy fields, open the Pineal Gland, and it contains a complex informational system that can be used to access healing and growth in many dimensions.

Your Authentic self.

Mar 25, 2013   //   by Carol Hastings   //   Blog  //  Comments Off on Your Authentic self.

There is a you that existed long before the you that you know now.
When you were born you were as one with this you.
Which is the perfect you.
This part of you is the higher and wiser part of you.
You were separated as you grew.
As your ego developed you lost touch with this part of you.

As you developed the beliefs that you thought would sustain you in this material world.
You lost sight of this you who remained constant and unchanged.
Perhaps you did not know this you still existed.
Instead you struggled and suffered in this world.
You lost sight of your higher purpose,
Your fears prevented you living your dreams.
If you could be the you that you always wanted to be this is the you that you would be.

This part of you has many names, the authentic self or the higher self, and is perfect, perfect physique, perfect health perfect love, free of all your imperfections.
Part of your mission on earth is to reconnect with your higher self so you can realise your higher purpose.

Imagine meeting your higher self and then merging with that energy, and reclaiming that part of you. Your higher self will guide you with unconditional love and wisdom as you follow the higher path. As you do this, you feel an increase in energy, perhaps some tingling as your vibration naturally increases.


G12   I Am


G12 I Am (Pale Gold / Pale Gold)

This is the I Am. When you choose this bottle you are ready to release all the beliefs that still say “I am not”. When you choose this you are fully prepared to align with your Divine self and claim yourself as part of the Divine. The Creator and I are one. The Divine is within and I am that. Our addictions are the things that keep us small and keep us feeling separate from our Divine self. This bottle will support us in letting go of fear and the separating influence of addiction. When we claim back our true authentic power, we can be free of the addictions and be fearlessly, powerfully Divine.


2013 March- Mercury Retrograde.

Mar 20, 2013   //   by Carol Hastings   //   Blog  //  Comments Off on 2013 March- Mercury Retrograde.

Mercury went Direct March 17th, 2013.


While Mercury retrograde in Pisces brought lots of insights and helped to realign with our deepest wishes, floating midstream without definite focus what not so easy! While some of us were enjoying this time, others found it a rather bumpy ride..!

Now it seems things are coming into clarity and with the fire energy of Aries and the upcoming Solstice transition, we are bringing things into alignment!




Here is a wonderful spot-on assessment of what we’ve just been through and what we can expect from the always insightful Robert Wilkinson and his Aquarius Papers:

 “Mercury goes direct in motion March 17, 1:03 pm PDT, 4:03 pm EDT, 8:03 pm Greenwich, and speeds up for the next 10 weeks. This shows a quickening of the ability to coordinate, put things together, understand the whole and the parts, the process and the larger cycles…”

“What does Mercury going stationary direct at 6 Pisces hold for us?…We are told the symbol is ‘Officers on dress parade.’ According to Rudhyar’s notes from the Marc Jones class, this degree is one of ‘self-exaltation through consecration to the task of defending collective values,’ ‘self-testing,’ and ‘perception of high goals.’”

“In ‘The Astrological Mandala’ he states the keynote is ‘The dedication of human beings to the service of their community, and the assurance that it will be emotionally sustained by the people at large.’ He notes this is about ‘emotion-arousing appeal of social activities’ where we surrender certain elements of our personal life in order to find ‘support that the socialized person can expect from the collectivity if (they) are ready to act and to sacrifice (themselves) for the nation or the group.”

“He says this degree is about ‘the power generated by a totally accepted and enforced collective discipline, and the exaltation and mass response (those who have) achieved this self-surrender to a social tradition can expect in return. The keyword is GROUP RESPONSIBILITY.’ “

“…Pay attention, since from now through June the lower mind (Mercury) can intuitively ‘know’ what’s coming in May, June, and the first half of July, how those collective developments can be individually coordinated and used in some Pisces way in our personal life and renewed social dedications. This gives us a chance to anticipate what’s coming in the larger field, wherever we are.”

“It also indicates more evolving developments concerning the radical shift humanity went through last Winter Solstice but by and large has no idea what happened. I’m seeing some fairly astounding evolutionary leaps in play, for good or ill depending on how balanced people’s hemispheres are. I’ll be writing more about this in the future.”

“…In any case, we should all start seeing, hearing, and understanding things that point the way to some Mercurial technique of how we have been and continue to be guided to our Soul. Given that it falls at 6 Pisces, it shows us some way to find connectedness on inner and outer levels that can make us more compassionate through a larger view of the human condition, its losses and farewells, its endings and how karma is tallied at the end of the end of any given thing.”

“Here we get a deep sense of how and when to say ‘goodbye,’ or why we had to say goodbye in the recent past, as well as a new role to fulfill within our society. This will help us see higher goals, a larger sense of purpose, and new ‘group responsibilities.‘ The symbol is oriented toward a sense of emotional connection with others who share a common dedication, the shared feelings that the Mutable Water of Pisces symbolizes.”

“…He says the keyword is DISCIPLINE, and when positive, this degree is ‘schooled self-assurance and absolute responsibility.’ The implication is that through Mercury, we have opportunities to grow into a Soul expression through being sensitive to a greater social responsibility and deeper and wider knowing, while using intuitive intelligence to reshape our expression and thereby our reality.”

“…Over the next three weeks through April 6, while it’s still in its ‘shadow period’ from 6 to 20 Pisces…After it leaves its ‘shadow span,’ it quintiles Pluto, sesquisquares Saturn, and then enters Aries on April 13-14, beginning its coordination function to weave together all the other Aries transits we’ve already experienced via Mars, the Sun, and Venus.”

“…Something’s going to give in a big way, but it should create stability, productivity, and great benefit….”

“By April 6-7, Mercury will move out of its shadow span and enter its next ‘unknown zones’ where the themes of this retrograde will be played out in forward motion. So for the next three weeks, expect some very productive intersections of past and future, with a promise of stability once we do a closure ritual and forgive whatever needs forgiving. This is a ‘clean up and out’ time, since the other inner planets are already jump-starting Aries activities wherever these transit our chart.”

“So at the end of this retrograde period, we find ourselves ready to say goodbye, let go of a past, and now living a vaster feeling connection to others or some common purpose we share with others. Spiritual connections are now established, and many will receive rewards for having attuned to a more spiritual way to live, feel, and think.”

“…As Jupiter and Neptune rule Mercury and they are in a subtle aspect indicating the need to overcome some duality by making a leap of faith, keep a sense of humor, see your freedom to move into a future on your own terms, and remember that those who would rule must first learn to serve with a good attitude. This will help us pull out of nosedives, and see how to shift momentum or the trajectory of something and ‘right ourselves gracefully.”

“As Mercury and Neptune are both in Pisces, remember that there are ‘psychic traffic jams’ that are confusing a lot of people, and interactions are becoming very intense. This is a time when we can ‘master discouragement,’ and rally to some task that calls us. Find the knowledge that can ensure some measure of wealth or power, shift direction as needed, and remember that after old responsibilities are fulfilled and you’ve reached a level of mastery in ‘flying by the seat of your pants,’then you get new responsibilities more appropriate to your advanced skills.”

“Demonstrate your skills within cyclic events, don’t let your mind try to leap beyond its own shadow, and show a sense of humor as you figure out the details of a plan. It’s a time of forced growth, so if you’re ambitious, you’ll ‘win a prize.’ Just remember to learn the rules of the game, and play fair as you learn a more open way to cooperate with others.”

“Because of the power of Mercury and Neptune in Pisces, there will be tremendous intuition available to those who have done the work and embraced a spiritual discipline. Here our ability to attune to the angels, devas, and all the invisible world, from nature spirits to Masters, attracts a higher awareness or vaster experience.”

“This will be an extraordinarily favorable and productive time of attunement and alignment with the entire invisible world and the life forms helping humanity that can be contacted there. Set aside glamor, desire, ego attachments and push-pull power games, and this can be a time when we really become trained to manifest something deeper and higher than we have before now.”

“We’ve now had opportunities to reshape our motives, or sense of sorrow around what hasn’t worked or is ending. We have begun to glimpse how our needs have been met in the past in just the right ways and times, and how can feel more connected with our wider spiritual family.”

“We now have gotten clear insights into what’s ended or needs to be eliminated in our lives so we can come to a freer, wiser, calm awareness. So now that we’ve done our rehearsals, reviews, revisions, and/or research on how we can coordinate the parts of this emerging process during the past 3 weeks, it’s again time to get it on!!!”

“Here we face the future, and do what we must to weave elements of that future into our current life and affairs. We continue to eliminate attitudes and interpretations no longer appropriate to our emerging process, and can see the interconnectedness of life as we find our unique place to doing our Being in a vaster field of activity.”

“We now begin to ride the edge of extremely dynamic change, finding new forms of demonstrating the power of our new life archetypes we’ve been living…Mercury direct will open many views and perspectives over the next 3 months, and the insights we receive and weaving we do in that period will lead us to a natural and powerful new set of views in July 2013. By November 2013 we will have crystallized a new humanitarianism, a new way of seeing the world of the 5 senses and the mind as ‘the playground of God and Soul,’ and know the wisdom of our ‘God within’ that will show us the way to gather our power to master our physical mechanism.”

“…On the whole this retrograde period has been finalizing, liberating, productive, and emotionally stabilizing. Even though there may have been a lack of clarity or confusion in some ways, or it seems that some things that need to end have been hanging on in a state of indefinite suspension, we’ve also gotten insights, returns, and understanding about things we didn’t know about before the retrograde began.”

“We’ve gotten clear about crosscurrents in our thinking relative to others, and had to see things through their eyes so we could communicate more clearly why our thinking or understanding is different from theirs. It’s also been great to bust old illusions, deceptions, and through seeing the larger phases and stages of unfolding events, and find new ways to see our role while renouncing our own and others’ perceptions that don’t honor our true part in the larger scheme of things.”

“So as Mercury now goes direct in motion, open up and be receptive to higher awareness, higher knowledge, and a greater faith in your ability to know in ways you’ve never known before. We are now solidly in a time of learning deeper experiential methods of weaving things together, and a deeper dedication toward integrating personality within a deeper Soul response. Keep purifying, eliminating, and regenerating your mind and ability to focus without distractions getting in the way. Concentrate to integrate, let go and leap into a new life adventure that’s already prepared for you.”

“We’ve just been through a clarifying period where many things have been reviewed to see what’s over, what needs to be over, and what needs to be regenerated to bring forth the higher awareness we’re already receiving, whether we know it or not. Something has been stabilized, and we can now move forward on the basis of the insights we’ve gained these past several weeks.”

“Things related to Mercury will speed up considerably for the next three months, so go for a new motive and sense of who you are within the larger group or social field you’re in. Continue to adapt with efficiency and a sense of freedom, and get ready for further sacrifices over the next few weeks that will focus and expand your spiritual effectiveness.”

“From here we move forward into a clearer, more exciting future! Revolutionary things are in the air, so concentrate to see the bigger picture. Soon we’ll see events of the past from a higher symbolic angle that show us a new identity has been crafted, and we can now see more clearly what that is and how we can live it wholeheartedly.”
