Dear Ms. Q,
“What is all this excitement about 5 planets lining up in the sky?”
I’ve had several questions about this and actually this event was slowly falling into place since January 20th This is a fairly rare Astrological event, and I do believe that in some way the planetary energies can and do in some way affect us.
This planetary alignment is a serious, positive harbinger that is coming into our lives, because also since Jupiter is in retrograde for positive thinking and action, we also have 5 planets lined up with the Libra Moon, which actives positive action on several fronts, the planets are Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn are in alignment with the Moon.
This has not happened in over 15 years.
We are talking about the powerful combination of Venus (our planetary impact for unconditional love and money), Saturn (representative of the law of cause end effect, planet of karma), Mars (planet of passion and war), Jupiter (planet of good fortune) and Mercury (planet of communication interplanetary and external).
Knowing all that and putting it in perspective this energetic alignment can turn into an incredible blessing, or a massive burden – totally depending on where one is standing in their personal development Over all this amazing stellar event gives all the people who are ready to drop what ever happened in their past and come to a place of inner peace and forgiveness and to celebrate the new beginnings.
In a way this alignment also helps a line our own personal energies or Chakra centers, to make them function better and to be at peace with ourselves, our lives and with those around us. A child born during this time will be 5 times bless. Some may have special abilities, possibly psychic abilities to either a greater or lesser degree.
All five planets that can be seen with the naked eye will be visible together in the early morning sky. This will last for about a month, from January 20 until February 20, 2016. This amazing show is equally visible to both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres.
And From January 27 through February 6, the moon will join the five planets.
And we are talking about the powerful combination of
Venus (our planetary impact for unconditional love and money),
Saturn (representative of the law of cause end effect, planet of karma),
Mars (planet of passion and war),
Jupiter (planet of good fortune)
and Mercury ( planet of communication interplanetary and external)
Plus the stars/suns Antares and Spica.
Over all this amazing stellar event gives all the people who are ready to drop what ever happened in their past and come to a place of inner peace and forgiveness, for all they have been part of, to complete their cycle of karma and step into the self-empowered position of a human co-creator in harmony with the divine in a healthy way, the society we live in and the global community we all are part of.
Unfortunately there are ones who are not ready to let go of themes like war, greed, jealousy, territorial behavior and violence, the issues of survival, emotional dysfunction, high levels of internal stress, increased anxiety, inner restlessness and a tendency to violent outbursts can appear among them and make them worse. To sense the love as well as karmic retribution is like a powerful loud gong going on in their heads and so they resort to violence to “drown it out”.
But to those who want to make the world a better place it will sound like softly tinkling chimes in a garden of serenity. Now I’m not talking airy-fairy fluff bunny stuff, I’m talking about people who will help the homeless, helping the poor, save wildlife, clean up the air and water even our food, fighting Monsanto, helping Veterans and supporting them, etc. but not being hostile about it.
This unique moment, from a spiritual point of view, is a lesson from each planet and allows us to reflect deeper and gaze inward to our souls.
So what does each planet mean?
Mercury is the ruler of communication – take inventory of how you express your emotions with your words, and be mindful if your tone is in alignment with your intention.
Venus relates to love – be sure to give love to where ever you may feel lack, and to give lots of gratitude to where there is already love.
Mars is considered the action planet, so if there’s been something you’ve been wanting to do, but haven’t yet done – get moving, and take the actions necessary to gain momentum. With the other planets being your guide, also remember to be loving in your actions, and to communicate from a place of pure intention. This is the planet that helps get people involved with “Habitat for Humanity” or the “Tiny House” movement.
Jupiter is the philosopher, and this is a great time to find the “gold” in your life’s lessons, if there is any area of your life that still feels “heavy”, be your own spiritual alchemist and find appreciation for the lesson, and forgive with all of your heart.
Saturn relates to karma, so it is important to remember that for every action big or little, there’s a reaction. May be some actions brought about an unpleasant reaction. We have to always remember that we reap what we sow, and whatever good we give to the world, we will get back and this same principle applies to the bad as well. So if life hasn’t been going your way, consider what actions you need to take to cause a better outcome, and what must be done to undo anything that isn’t resonating with your highest truth.
This alignment calls for us to align with our better selves with love, in action, in knowledge of our experiences, and with the right frame of mind and in doing that to live as the best version of ourselves.
So what can we magically do with this planetary alignment, any time this month but by February 2nd get a large bottle of Spring water and put it out each night until the Sun begins to crest the horizon to collect these planetary energies. With the final very early morning before dawn as the last day. Label the bottle “Alignment Water” and keep it in a dark place in your pantry, do not drink it.
Then when you have a chance as soon as possible in the evening or late at night light a white candle and burn Frankincense and pray over the Bottle of water calling down the Divine presence to consecrate it pray Psalm 59 line 16-17
“But as for me, I shall sing of Your strength; Yes, I shall joyfully sing of Your loving kindness in the morning, For You have been my stronghold And a refuge in the day of my distress. O my strength, I will sing praises to You; For God is my stronghold, the God who shows me loving kindness.”
And Psalm 28 line 7 “The Lord is my helper and my protector: in him hath my heart confided, and I have been helped. And my flesh hath flourished again, and with my will I will give praise to him.”
Then finish your prayers with this injunction over the water
“As above, so below, as within, so without, as the universe, so the soul. As is the human body, so is the cosmic body, as is the human mind so is the cosmic mind, as is the microcosm, so is the macrocosm, as is the atom, so is the universe.”
Whenever you feel your energies out of alignment, as you’re taking your bath or shower, once you’ve finish bathing but before you step out of the tub, touch a few drops of this water over your head and say “I am in alignment with myself, the earth and the universe, as above, so below, so within, so without. ”
Now this is not a substitute for any psychic cleansing or defense, nor do any of the herb baths but if you feel out of it and don’t have time to do a full ritual cleansing, this will help until you can, but use is sparingly and not every day, just if things don’t feel right because this planetary alignment only happens rarely. So maybe several bottles of spring water.
When this would happen my Granny and her ladies would put out several gallon jugs of spring or river water out to collect and infuse the water with those energies.
And my niece is doing that now for me.
