rutilated forsythia fortifier

Forsythia blossoms steeping in Pisces solar power.

1. Use unmarked glass lidded dishes (to keep nosey felines away) – these were half price at a local store.

2. bottled spring water

3. meditation to raise energy with the plant, a blessing.

4. a pendulum question and answer session with the plant.  ie: one plant was more receptive to offering than another

5. gently pick flowers- enough to cover the surface of the water.  Since this essence is for me I didn’t get all weird about touching the blossoms and transferring my energies etc..

6. You may boost the power of the essence with the appropriate stone by putting it in to steep with the flowers.

7. Let your blossoms steep in sunlight (or moonlight if you prefer- I did that for my fall clematis on the last Neptune in Aquarius Pisces full moon) for 2-4 hours in direct sun in a place you know shadows will not fall upon the jar.

8. Strain with cheesecloth, have a sterilized bottle ready for the essence.

9.  Fill bottle halfway with essence, top off with rum, or brandy to preserve the subtle vibrational quality of the Mother essence.

10.  To prepare for dosage: use two drops of Mother Essence in a one-ounce dark-glass bottle with a glass dropper, and fill the remainder of the bottle with half rum and half spring water.

11.  Drop 3-4 drops under your tongue daily or as needed.

Flower essence and gem elixir work with the subtle bodies, the etheric field.  They have a vibrational quality that directly relates to the individual – they are based on sympathetic molecular structure.  The essences work harmonically, in tandem with the electromagnetic field of the etheric and physical body, raising the vibration and thereby, health of the individual.

The stone I chose to use is rutilated quartz : tissue regeneration, brain stimulator, enhances and increases thought forms; storage and broadcast of thought forms.

I also chose citrine : mental discipline, greater emotional control, clearer thought forms. Thought forms and broadcasting of them is stimulated.  Self-destructive tendencies are alleviated, confidence is rekindled through a balancing of the astral, emotional, mental, soul, and spiritual bodies; meridians and nadis are stimulated.

Mercury Rx (thinking) and Uranus (intuition and clairvoyance) are conjunct in Aries now.
Moon is in Aquarius square the planets of abundance, Venus and Jupiter; Venus and Jupiter are part of a grand earth trine.

So abundance is based in the mindset, yes  ?

There is no way to happiness, happiness is the way.

In my natal, Mercury is at MC; Uranus conjunct Virgo Sun and Pluto in 9, and Uranus is quintile Sagittarius Mars in 11.  Thought forms and the broadcasting of them will be stepping up to the plate on my astrological ball diamond here soon, so I am fortifying with gem elixir & flower essence.

Forsythia :

The Forsythia elixir has the capacity to energize many aspects of the loving nature in people, bringing them to more easily accept this in themselves. Sometimes this will make it easier to tolerate and accept others; to really see people of completely different cultural, ethnic, religious, even class backgrounds, and be able to more easily love them. The emotional body is significantly cleansed with Forsythia, especially where it is connected to any other person, and most people will find themselves more energized. Use of this flower helps one to see abundance in all things, let go of the concepts of short supply, and recognize abundance in oneself and in others.

soul on a sunbeam

I pick the prettiest part of the sky and I melt into the wing and then into the air,
till I’m just soul on a sunbeam.  ~ Richard Bach

Balsamic Moons are the bridge between two worlds ~ the past is ending, the future new moon is approaching.  This is the moon phase of distilled enlightenment.  Knowledge of the last full moon has spread to others, all insights gleaned will germinate at the next new moon and will grow to fruition at the full moon in Libra on the sixth of April. (USA)

Balsamic Moon is the stage of the wise crone, the guru, it is the stage of solitude, silence and endings.

Moon is now in Aquarius, it enters Pisces on Monday the 19th (USA).  As the New Moon in Aries (Thursday the 22nd) approaches, it is a time to go ‘dark’ or inward, become contemplative, rest and renew.

Meditations, ritual ceremonies and magickal work while the Moon is waning in Aquarius is very productive for spawning revolutionary ideas, independence and breaking ties with restrictive situations. The Aquarius Moon particularly favors breaking love attachments as it is a moon of detached emotions, platonic relationships and freedom.

I love the painting above ~ she speaks of the flower of life & creation, ancient depictions of the platonic solids, the fundamental forms of space and time.
Her Sahasrara crown is the cosmos ~ universal enlightenment.
Two peace doves for harmony.
She is the goddess of Mercury Rx conjunct Uranus in Aries, vibing high and changing her world (square to Pluto in Capricorn) through compassion (conjunct Sun in Pisces)and transcendence.

Full Moon in Virgo on Thursday March 8th at 3:39 am, CST, USA.

It is a day of energies in tandem :

Mercury and Uranus in Aries
(fire- active thinking, communicating and intuition)

Full Moon and Mars Rx in Virgo
(Feelings coupled with an inward focus of personal will and desires)

Venus and Jupiter in Taurus
(earth- steady growth with $$, creativity and love)

Sun will be opposite (Full) Moon and Mars Rx in Virgo
(revelations in both the houses of Virgo and Pisces, questions will be answered regarding these houses that have been on the table since the last new moon)

Venus and Jupiter will be opposite Saturn Rx in Libra (positive co-operative change, finding balance in relationships, even if it is only something You decide for Yourself.)

Mercury and Uranus in Aries will be square Pluto in Capricorn
(Progressive ideas, changes taking place- action taken regarding long-term goals)

Venus will be sextile Neptune in Pisces
(possibility for grand creative plans manifested on earth – you have to activate them !)

Neptune in Pisces will be trine Saturn Rx in Libra. (build the dream you wish to create- be exact !)

Grand Earth Trine
On Wednesday, March 14th – all at 9 degrees – exact – 12:50 am, CST, USA.

Venus is coming to conjunct Jupiter in Taurus (benefics, both) they will be trine Pluto in Capricorn and Mars Rx in Virgo.

Grand Earth Trine energy is a harmonious, beneficial and co-operative expression of energy – the planets involved are moving energies in the same nature Earth it signifies a time for growth on the material plane.

Taurus rules finance and possessions, financial and self – worth.  Venus is love, money and creativity – it will be conjunct the planet of expansion and luck, Jupiter in the house of finance.  They are in trine to Pluto the transformation energy in Capricorn the sign of big business, career and ambitions.  They are also in trine to Moon and Mars, which puts an emotional kicker behind the Mars Rx in Virgo.

Mars Rx in Virgo energy – I have witnessed of late – is no doubt a more thoughtful, delayed Mars energy because it is in the house of the discerning eye, Virgo  perfectionism.  Instead of single-minded pursuit of one vision / one action, the Mars Rx energy I have experienced is sorted at the get go – meaning it is not full thrust in one direction, but compartmentalized prior; it feels like only so much energy is available, or allotted to each task.

Virgo is Mercury ruled, Mercury is the mind – channel it carefully as thoughts become tangible things, Mars Rx is the mind put to detail and the energy follows inward. It has expressed itself to me in fits and starts of productivity, multi-tasking and bouts of monkey mind – nip the negative and replace with positive – being flexible is key.  Virgos can be rigid, but the house of Virgo really needs to compromise with (opposite sign) and draw upon the classic Pisces surrender for this passage of Mars Rx and Mercury Rx.

Keep a firm grip on the positive and go with the flow.

Mercury Retrograde Monday, March 12 – 2:49 am, CST, USA.

Mercury going retrograde will bring it back to meet Uranus for a second time, it’s higher octave.  Gut feelings and intuition on a personal inward level will be high, revelations on the inner plane of self will be forthcoming and very enlightening.

Look to your house of Aries for more clues – Mercury and Uranus will be forming new solutions, creating brainstorms, and changing the way everything ~ eyesight and second sight ~ is SEEN.

Mercury rules maps, and Uranus intuition – follow your hunches.
Sun will be trine Moon – Venus conjunct Jupiter – what does your heart tell you ?

Mercury Retrograde in the house of Aries and Mars Retrograde in the house of Virgo brings the 2 planets into mutual reception, they will be working well together in tandem, in each others houses to find the best personal solutions to actions (Mars / Aries) and communications (Mercury / Virgo) on a personal (and global) level.

Mercury Rx / Aries is more thought out and less knee-jerk, yet still shooting sparks and taking action – Aries is the I AM – this and the house of Aries in your chart is where to look.  Mars Rx in Virgo is action compartmentalized and detailed tweaking on the mental plane.

When these two planets are in mutual reception they will be working together in your Aries and Virgo houses to streamline and re-evaluate mental and physical actions on the material plane.

Who am I, where am I going, how will I get there, and what can I do for you along the way..?

Be mindful of your thoughts, for when Mercury begins to slow and begin retrograde, its energies are in tandem with Uranus – both square Pluto the power of divine will.

Thoughts are set to manifest rapidly into the material plane.
