Life is but a dream when we are connected to our higher selves. With the nodes of the moon in Virgo and Pisces for all of 2016, there will be a theme of healing and many opportunities to deepen our connection with our higher-self as we will be given opportunities to let go of any delusions and illusions as we dance in the world of our dreams (Pisces). The world of form where the ego-mind lives is consistently inviting us to identify with the world of form, and things, which is inevitably fleeting. This can make it a delicate tango of creating a life we have been dreaming of and coming to terms with that the dream is not exactly what we thought it was going to be or we are not able to manifest the dream we want. When we awaken to this sometimes-harsh reality we can be left with a feeling of emptiness as we come face to face with the illusion or possibly disappointment.
Why is it that some dreams are so easily manifested and others are not? While some dreams, once they are manifested are not as great as what we thought they would be.
Evolutionary astrology points to the idea that we have a soul, which goes beyond form identity and is much deeper than our ego-mind-state. Our soul is the timeless part of ourselves that continues on even after this life degenerates and dissolves. Our soul carries the karma from all of our past actions from this life and previous lives. Most of us are not aware of our soul, at least not fully. When our ego mind creates the next great idea and dream to manifest, we are not necessarily aware of what the soul’s intent or plan is. This is precisely when we can have an awakening when the ego-mind and the soul are not in alignment. When dreams do not come true it is often because the dream did not align with the mission or karma of our soul.
It is in this exact moment we are also invited to look beyond the world of form and our egos and connect to the timeless presence of our soul and higher self, our Mighty I AM Presence. Sometimes it can be a little painful or literally an ego blow when we discover the dream needs to be reconstructed and made with more precision and awareness of connecting the ego, soul and our higher self. When we are able to do this and let go of any lingering stories of “what should have been or what should be” and fully accept the present moment in its perfect reflection of where we are at on our journey, we are liberated!
In this moment of nothing, no-thing, we are free and more conscious to create with more connection between the soul, the ego and the higher self. This is when we can walk hand and hand with the infinite intelligence of the universe in creating a more suitable dream for our ultimate purpose.
The lesson and theme of Virgo, opposite Pisces (where the nodes are all year) is about being in service and doing work that is connected with our true purpose. This is the other prevailing theme for the year. We are being called to do work and a mission that has real meaning and purpose for us and is somehow in true service to the world at large. This is an excellent time to ask ourselves: What is the mission statement for my personal and professional life? How is my work helping people? How can I be in service and make a difference with the work I am already doing or will be doing.
Being clear about what your personal or professional mission is tremendously helpful now. When we are fulfilling our purpose and mission of serving and helping the world be a better place, fulfillment follows. When our dream is primarily rooted in a selfish paradigm, we commonly come face to face with the delusion or where we have lost direction or inspiration.
With the total Solar Eclipse on March 8th-9th in Pisces at 18 degrees, we may have a wake-up call in the areas of our dreams, work, health or spirituality. This will be especially noticeable eclipse if you have any personal planets in your natal astrology chart within five degrees of 18 degrees Pisces, Virgo, Sagittarius or Gemini. This is nothing to worry about only a clue to be more conscious and take notice of any turn of events around March 8th that shake things up. Eclipse energy has a way of bringing some unexpected turn of events that can ultimately change the course we were headed in. Hopefully, this puts us on a better and more appropriate track that ultimately connects us with our true purpose, higher self or the best course of action.
Having an evolutionary astrology reading is an excellent tool for more self awareness and to have a road map to your specific astrological make up.
