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.

What’s Really in a Word? Mercury Retrograde

We are taking a “detour” from our normal chain of word pondering to place our attention upon astrology’s recurring cycle of MERCURY RETROGRADE.

Who is Mercury & What Happens Under Retrograde?
This is an astrological cycle in time that asks us to carefully consider our choices for the future- preferring that we take time to rest, reroute, reboot, and recharge as best we can during it’s passage.

Being Mercury is an inner planet, its’ retrograde affects are felt more intensely than what our outer planet retrograde cycles unfold. Mercury is known as our Messenger, the planet that guides all of our thinking, mentality, communicating, and anything that involves movement within our lives.

When Mercury is retrograde, he is equally known as “The Trickster” when we tend to naturally see our courses of action involving flux, change, and oddities surrounding them during this transit that asks for pause verses forward motion. Human error is also known to be at its’ highest under this transit.

First Off, What Does “Retrograde” Mean?
From Mercury all the way out to Pluto, you’ll find all our planetary channels periodically take action in what is called “Retrograde.” These are the times that we are guided to GOT TO GO REDO EGO, GOT TO GO TO ART, GOT TO GO RETREAT, GOT TO GO A GREAT DEAR REREAD as we can spell out the truth.

Any astronomer can properly explain to you that even though planets literally reverse their direction via their measured degrees in astrology, they aren’t in actuality going backwards at all by physical astronomical definition. One thing is for certain, is they aren’t moving forward when one is in the awareness of any planet’s retrograde motion.

Oh and by the way, the “RETRO” you obviously see at these times is not some new trendy thing recycled from the past. However, the RETRO you do witness under these reflective planetary periods certainly does take you back to fix what maybe screaming at you to take that pause to chill out, slow down, and finally pay attention to it.

Any planets’ retrograde period requests us to return, redo, reflect and reassess what we’ve already put into forward motion from the area of our lives in is journeying on it’s backwards trail through. It is best too, to have your birth chart properly done by a professional astrologer so you can know exactly what area of your life any given retrograde cycle urges you to “retro” on back to.

Name Expressions: The Energy Vibrations Within Our Names & Titles
When we examine the Name Expression of the specific title of MERCURY RETROGRADE -which is the numerological energy that is always behind it through the values of the letters that compose it- we find it has, as numbers always will provide, the very key points to know what exactly to do within the action of it.

One should not be surprised it is guided by the Chaldean’s understanding of the 13, which is one of the compound numbers they coined as the understanding of ‘Regeneration – Change.’ Adding 1 + 3 together, we find the 4, whose singular energy is ruled by the planet Uranus, who opens us up to breakthroughs and sudden changes- equally governing over our originality, individuality and the unexpected in life. What happens under Mercury Retrograde is all about returning to a point of regeneration, and the changes we see during it’s passage, are more often than not: sudden and unexpected.

The Chaldean Karmic Mystery associated with the 13, ‘Regeneration – Change,’ is uncannily on point as to what we all tend to experience anytime Mercury Retrogrades. Said the Chaldeans about the 13: “13 is not an unlucky number, as many people believe. The ancients claimed that he who understands how to use the number 13 will be given power and dominion. The symbol of the 13 is a skeleton, or death, with a scythe, reaping down men in a field of new-grown grass, where young faces and heads appear to be thrusting through the ground and emerging on all sides. 13 is a number of upheaval, so that new ground may be broken. It’s associated with power, which, if used for selfish purposes, will bring destruction upon itself. There is a warning of the unknown and the unexpected. Adapting to change gracefully will bring out the strength of the 13 vibration, and decrease any potential for he negative. 13 is associated with genius- also with explorers, breaking the orthodox and new discoveries of all kinds. 4/8 advice as well.” ~Linda Goodman’s Star Signs

There is no doubt that we all experience profound energies as we circulate through any Mercury Retrograde as its’ Name Expression advises through the 13’s concept of  ‘Regeneration – Change.’ MRx always reroutes, asking us to have backup plans B, C, D & even E necessary during it’s transit. Whatever we may be anticipating, we will experience changes with it on some level.

It is rare for any MRx passage to go by without us equally noticing that regeneration of some kind has found us as well. The key to embracing graceful energy under MRx is to adapt to change, the very request of the 13 Name Expression itself.

What is also of interest to note is the artistic energy surrounding a Mercury Retrograde. While MRx certainly does not advise the signing of documents, getting married or starting anything for the future, returning to adventures where creativity and unfinished projects are the focus- these are able to tap into that genius the 13 promises to emerge within anyone.

Astrologically throughout history, some of the greatest artistic releases via film, music or the like have been revealed under a Mercury Retrograde passage. So, returning to creativity is a positive thing -and quite lucky indeed- we can discover is time well spent in the power of what this “tricky” passage can bring into our genius experiences.

As we engage in recognizing the rewards within what our Mercury Retrograde passages request, another point to note is what the singular 4’s guidance does here for anyone through how Uranus prepares us to expect the unexpected from the entire transit. 4 is known as The Innovator, in where the backtracking, reflection and review we do tends to open up some of the greatest creations we will find to move forward with once the transits completes.  4 is the energy that always requests for us to honor the self, our individuality, and see the larger picture of how we are equally all connected as one through a universal brotherhood and sisterhood.

Lexigrams & Mercury Retrograde: Let’s Spell Out The Truth
The mysteries of Lexigrams have more evidence to support the meaning within MERCURY RETROGRADE, and what it is simply able to do for any of us. By taking the anagrams we can derive from this word, and spiral them into poetic phrases, the Lexigram process brings one more piece of the puzzle to place into our mastery of life about what’s really hiding within it in truth. The reality that relates to how to best reap the rewards this title wishes for us all to assimilate into our human experiences, is as always, ready to be spelled out from the very letters that compose it.



Remember, to truly CURE OUR EGO, GO MEET and GREET the RETREAT!

To Your Success within Mercury’s periodic offerings for finding reward in reflection! 

To Your Mastering Mercury Retrograde in 2021.
Namaste, Dear Stars.
