MOON ASTROLOGY by Raven Moondance
The Celestial Magic of the Angels
Beings from the Angelic realms are a reflection of the Light that we are. We are definitely more than the flesh body that we appear to be on the physical plane. Calling upon the Angelic realms, the realms of Light, we ask for assistance on our Earthly journey as we learn, grow, expand and evolve into the higher aspect of who we are. Every experience assists in revealing a bit more of our true essence, our true Light.
As we begin this new year, take time to observe and examine your thoughts and what you are focusing on. What are you envisioning for the year ahead? Do your actions reflect your inner light? Do your words reflect the truth of who you are? What do you see unfolding in the year ahead---a world of caring, oneness, unity or a world of chaos? It is up to each one of us as an integral piece of the cosmic puzzle to create a world of love, unity and harmony. There is an 11 day window as we transition into 2016 when all the planets are direct. Mercury goes into Retrograde on January 5. Right now is a perfect time to gain clarity, set intentions and feel confident about moving forward. The first New Moon of the year is on January 9--a time to set our intentions for the year both for ourselves, our family and community and our world.
"Nothing can hold back the tides of change that have been moving through our world. But we have choice as to the quality of that change as we re-imagine, re-think, and steer our hearts in new directions." (from Perspectives From the Sky by Astrologer LeoKnighton Tallarico)
Attune to the Angelic energy speaking to your Sun sign and contemplate the insights you receive. What is an angel message? Is it a cosmic connection with the Universe? Or is it a higher power? Is it a force within you like a sixth sense or your intuition? Who are the Angels in your life?
