2016: Choosing Our Courage

COURAGE.SharitaStar“The Warrior of the Light is a believer. Because he believes in miracles, miracles begin to happen. Because he is sure that his thoughts can change his life, his life begins to change. Because he is certain that he will find love, love appears.” ~Paulo Coelho, Warrior of the Light

Welcome in the Universal Year 2016!

A New Year. A New Cycle.
2015 leaves it’s persevering mark on many across the globe as our responsibilities to learn from our human experiences surfaced in more than karmic ways during the past 12 months.

Our human experiences now shift during 2016, into new cycle that co-exists with our spiritual beings.

No matter what the energy of the world at large is, remember your life is always your individual human experience, via your own personal forecast.

2016’s Global Forecast
It’s time to activate courage and compassion into our practices. In the 12 months of 2016, these are our preferred choices to make sure our motivations, desires, and abilities are responsive verses reactive- even when conflicts beyond our personal control arise. Our unique goals and aspirations still belong to us amongst all that will be trying to distract us that will need to be carefully filtered.

What was initiated and began with full intention since 2008, now witnesses the greatest cycle of clearing out what is no longer necessary to properly evolve as 2016 unfolds. Overall, this years’ cycle now calls for our bravery, a warrior presence, and inevitable conclusions.

Equally requested is the deeper understanding of how to not allow the worlds’ problems and fears to conquer us when we choose to focus upon conquering our personal fears. This is quintessential to comprehend during 2016, as the year will leave an aggressive mark upon humanity in seemingly conflicting ways.

Individually Aligning with 2016
You do not need to be in an actual 9 Personal Year within your own forecast to see 2016’s collective energy unfold within your human experience. By following the spiritual guidance that your personal forecast precisely provides, 2016’s Universal energy seeks to compliment your own changing cycles.

The year ahead is ever powerful to align you in a true sense of shifting from feeding fear to rising up in courageous responses wherever you are within your own personal forecast. It’s warrior time to make the most of the collective energy that we co-exist within and are individually a part of as we evolve.

Let’s Look Back to Look Ahead
Over the past 8 years, on a collective level, we are all -while still honoring our own light- part of the larger whole that witnessed the bigger picture plant seeds in 2008 (1), the source of new beginnings and initiations amongst humanity.

Since then….

2009 (2) nurtured those seeds within it’s emotional and sensitive energy. The home, family & sense of co-operation called across the board.

2010 (3) burst open those seeds, aligning in new knowledge and education. Beliefs, philosophies & growth were stimulated on a global level.

2011 (4) formulated roots that secured the initiations of 2008 within a foundation. The unexpected, breakthroughs & over coming obstacles called to all.

2012 (5) brought forth blossoming, fast movement and permanent changes. Communications, mass changes & no going back unfolded for humanity.

2013 (6) called for understanding, compassion, adjustment, and balance. Justice, judgment & harmony asked to be aligned and embraced.

2014 (7) asked for the “soul homework” the inner work, the reflection in order to heal. Solitude, listening & remaining in the eye of the storms called to be heard.

2015 (8) asked us to reap the harvest, find the recognition & accept the reward. Only practicing responsibility, patience & honor allowed this stabilizing energy to flourish.

2016 (9) is now here to motivate us to drawn upon conclusions, dramatic endings and release. Penetration, aggressive action will persist, but a warriors’ courage will be the cure.

The Planetary Channel for 2016’s Cycle: Mars
Numerology, like astrology, is directly guided by the archetypes of our planets from above. As we translate what planetary movement means for us down here below, energetic patterns are always seen to unfold. It is now time to shift into the understanding of Mars from the more steadfast, overworked, school of hard knocks and rather serious space that Saturn’s archetype indicated would be symbolized within 2015 during our 8 Universal Year.

Mars as it influences the 9 energy unfolds into situations that ask us to take action, deepened into our guts, find our bravery, and decide what drives us to arrive at conclusions  resulting in powerful changes as we move forward thereafter. It is because of the affects of Mars during 2016, that the practice of courage will become anyone’s friend.

More keys for our success are opened as we understand the astrological signs Mars will journey through during 2016 for their overall energetic affects. Equally, where Mars reflects these same transits within one’s natal birth chart grants another valuable forecast of how the energy creates individual changes.

Being Perceptive: Mars in Scorpio 03 Jan to 05 Mar; 27 May to 02 Aug
The power to relax is not easy to come by when Mars journeys in Scorpio. While desires are more than powerful and passionate, the energy from this transit is unflagging and rigidly disciplined.

Motivations become probing, dissecting, persistent and shrewd. Authoritative issues will be at an all time high, and as Retrograde in this sign (27 May to 29 June) occurs, they will not be shy in displaying superior, domineering, callous and unsociable attitudes to be witnessed within our human experiences.

Finding Enthusiasm: Mars in Sagittarius 05 Mar to 27 May; 02 Aug to 27 Sept
Endurance and stability are not easy to come by when Mars journeys in Sagittarius. While desires are more than impulsive, the energy from this transit is spontaneously mobilized and fitful.

Motivations become speculative, exploratory, swift, discontinuous, and superficial. Independent leaning to defiant issues will be at an all time high, and as Retrograde in this sign (17 April to 27 May) occurs, they will not be shy in displaying frank, sporting, self-righteous and supercilious attitudes to be witnessed within our human experiences.

The Request for Reflection: Mars Retrograde 17 April to 29 June
One of the more “turbulent” times during 2016 will be when the pioneering planet in charge of our Universal Year will take time to do some sharpening of its’ own saw. Being Mars is still an inner planet -like Mercury and Venus Retrograde passages- when in retrograde, its’ request for reflection is more than intensely felt throughout our human experiences.

Humanity across the board can be sure to expect the unexpected as April arrives, and as Mars Retrograde moves through May, the calling for permanent, irreversible changes will be amazingly profound to watch unfold. What will magnify this affect is the added influence of 2016’s second Mercury Retrograde period that will pursue 28 April to 22 May within Taurus.

Most will find whatever intentions they may have to launch, initiate or begin anything brand new with long-term success in mind surrounding May 2016, will be like trying to build a house upon a sand foundation. Once again -like our Mercury Retrograde periods- knowing how to properly embrace reflection, review, reassessment and rework what already exists is where the benefits can be found to utilize the Mars Retrograde cycle to its full advantage.

Enjoying Ambition: Mars in Capricorn 27 Sept to 09 Nov
Humility, humor, warmth and consideration are not easy to come by when Mars journeys in Capricorn. While desires are more than persistent, the energy from this transit is efficiently controlled and sustained.

Motivations become practical, well-rehearsed, orthodox, vigorous, and prudent. Conscientious and organizational issues will be at an all time high as responsible, self-reliant, and traditional attitudes are witnessed within our human experiences.

Allowing Originality: Mars in Aquarius 09 Nov to 19 Dec
Personal touch and feeling are not easy to come by when Mars journeys in Aquarius. While desires are more than unusual, the energy from this transit is undeniably dynamic. Motivations become scientific, experimental, impersonal, abrupt and revolutionary.

Independence and theoretical understanding for humanitarian issues will be at an all time high as detached, friendly, blunt, nervy and unruly attitudes are witnessed within our human experiences.

Igniting Imagination: Mars in Pisces 19 Dec to 28 Jan 2017
Focus, direction and self-reliance are not easy to come by when Mars journeys in Pisces. While desires are more than sensual, the energy from this transit is unstable, diffused and easily exhausted.

Motivations become intuitive, involved, infiltrating, reconciliatory, devious and obscure. Receptive and charitable issues will be at an all time high as unassuming, diplomatic, self-sacrificing, dishonest and discontented attitudes are witnessed within our human experiences.

Forget the Anger, Lose the Fears & Choose Courage
Those choosing conflict in belief they are saving the day will not be well supported in 2016. Those exercising moves made in anger, fear and penetrating action will be entering into a storm they could otherwise avoid.

Looking back to action in play since 2008, this is the “cleaning house” year where aggressive action simply will no longer be tolerated. Aggressive action will attract intensities resulting in extremely painful outcomes.

Cleansing, clearing, releasing and letting go will be felt across the board in 2016. The positive or negative of whatever humanity has sown in deepest connections to 2008, it now shall conclude.

Becoming the Warrior
Choosing to stand in our warrior presence will be a wise choice to make in 2016 to be able to move throughout the year with ultimate success. However, it will be sensible to also monitor the “save the day” mentality.

No matter what the world will choose to do to resolve it’s conflicts, remembering who we personally are and standing up for what is right without the fight allows the win-win.

Focusing upon work backed by philanthropic intentions will be all the more rewarded and supported by the 9 energy by honoring the helpfulness that the 9 also symbolizes when it is treated with respect.  Adapting the age old mantra “kill ‘em with kindness” can reflect amazing personal rewards to anyone throughout 2016 when we activate our mindful choice of the response verses reaction should conflict come our way.

Shine Bright Warrior Star & Believe in the Miracle of You!

Wishing You an Amazing & Stellar 2016 Cycle of Choosing the Courageous in your individual human experience, Dear Star.

Happy New Year.  Namaste.

Standing in Your Courage: Mars Retrograde 23 Jan to 13 April

Courage. If your are a fan of the Cowardly Lion from ‘The Wizard of Oz’ there is a plenty you can reap in reward from listening to his advice over the next couple months as our planet of drive and action takes a break, and asks us all for reflection in The Virgin.

Mars has been journeying within Virgo since 10 November 2011. Perhaps, you’ve taken note of the sense of excitability emerging within this area of your Zodiac Pie. Our Pioneer planet does not hold back in the dynamic action that is moving energy here in all kinds of ways. As much as Mars loves to get things going, he equally draws forth conclusions to arrive down here below from wherever he is traveling within our celestial skies above, and sometimes, these are delivered in abrupt and rash ways.

As Mars reached 23 degrees Virgo on 19 January, his station occurred as he prepares for Retrograde motion on 23 January. Mars won’t move back to the 22nd degree of Virgo until 27 January, then his backwards journey will take him to 03 degrees Virgo. Here, he will station once more at 03 degrees Virgo on 07 April before going Direct 13 April. When any planet is within the station surrounding retrograde activity, it can bring on some intense energies down here below.

This entire passage marks a profound time to take a look at motivation and “what makes you tick” in the area of life that these degree points in Virgo rule over from both the natal birth chart and collective perspective. Mars prefers to convey his energies in “his own way” and can appear selfish from time to time. What is important to innately understand about “self” at this time is the difference between the attention to self and selfish acts. The first is a true response that is a gift to our Soul, while the latter is pure reaction that tends to create storms within our Spirit.

The natural energy of our Pioneer planet drives us to do things and at times do them rather quickly. Yet, under any Mars station and retrograde passage, it is in all of our best interests to sloooooow down, and take up with a patient pace. As we all take up further within our Winter’s retreats, certainly there couldn’t be a better time for some Mars reflection to take place. By the time it is complete 13 April, wowo, if your free will has chosen the SILENT LISTEN, what keys you will then have to unlock your Spring! As Virgo energy is at its’ best when all doubt is erased, truly it will be a time to come charging out of the gates, completely refreshed as Mars’s motivation will be ready to move forward again.

For the collective, be on the look out for endings and true conclusions to arrive in what Virgo’s purity and sense of discrimination represents for us all. As John Jocelyn speaks of this sign, “Ever does Virgo seek the reason; it wants to know why. Virgo, using the brain, requires sight and knowledge as to how one knows why. Virgo says, “Demonstrate to me how you know why!” Virgo attains to the power of discrimination, for discrimination is the one needful thing for Virgo souls. What is discrimination if not the ability to know the true from the false, the essential from the non-essential! Evolved souls in this sign get at the very core, the kernel of the exterior man, as well as to the center of things.”

This Mars Retrograde will tie up some interesting energies connected to what Saturn brought to the surface to be responsible for when he was transiting here September 2007 to October 2010. Virgo is the sign of the auditor, and those collective details that were examined and scrutinized over that time now get a true last once over. There is a discipline that will unleash itself, and whatever lessons did not fully come to pass from Father Saturn’s time here, Mars will now finalize the details of these deals.

So too, will you see these same kinds of activity from wherever Virgo seeks to be of service and brings a natural understanding to your life. Your natal birth chart that is calculated from your time of birth grants the true individual view, while the simplicity of knowing your sun sign casts the outer picture for how Mars’s reflective request also urges to speak with you. Remember, even as Mars goes Direct again upon 13 April, he will take all you have reassessed here moving forward to remain within the Virgo slice of your Zodiac Pie until 03 July, when he enters Libra.

A little quick guide is below from the collective perspective on which area of life Mars presently will request your courage to unfold as he journeys backwards for a pass. If you know your Rising Sign/Ascendant (determined from the time of birth) then look to how 23 to 03 degrees Virgo precisely sits within the natal birth chart for closer insight to how you can make the most of rising up to your core and grace.

Aries: Health/Being of Service/Employees/Pets

Taurus: Creativity/Children/Love Affairs

Gemini: Home/Family/Emotions/Environments

Cancer: Thinking/Mentality/Communications

Leo: Values/Earning Power/Possessions

Virgo: Approaches/Mask to the World/Motivations

Libra: Inner Psyche/Clearing of the Past

Scorpio: Innovations/Friendships/Organizations

Sagittarius: Career/Public Life/Opportunities

Capricorn: Philosophies/Foreign Travel/Education

Aquarius: Transformations/Sexuality/Wealth

Pisces: Partnerships/Marriage/Balance with Others

Mars Retrograde will test our patience and truest sense of how we handle aggression and penetration within our lives, being he is -aside from the role of The Pioneer- the true warrior within the Zodiac. Yet, instead of reacting to any pressure that may come our way in conflict, there is another innate energy of Mars that will bring us the best results as we reflect. This, simply, is the response of COURAGE. URGE OUR CORE, CURE OUR RAGE, CURE OUR EGO, GRACE OUR AGE.

May rising up in courage bring you the brightest blessings Dear Stars as you discover and reflect upon all of your whys. Namaste.
