Hi everyone, Another great week begins with an additional fantastic blessing: the “whollyday” of Chanukah, the time zone of miracles and Light! I say, wholly (as Rav Berg would call it) because the holiday comes to complete us. With this in mind, let’s examine the stars!
At the start of the week, the moon is in powerful Scorpio, and a whole bundle of celestial bodies are located in the ninth house, which is the astrological domain of spiritual teachings and all forms of elevation. This lot of bodies (Neptune, Mars, Chiron, and the South Node) are in mystical Pisces. There is still a remarkable amount of water available in the cosmos—predominantly, Scorpio and Pisces. Mars, in its new Pisces location, offers us a time for reflection and deeper insight rather than straightforward action.
Additionally, Mercury is now in retrograde motion. It’s that time of the year again! Although, retrograde motions can create delays and miscommunications, oftentimes they present us with a ticket back in the time machine to fix what needs fixing. So, let’s get ready for our new mission: to peel back the layers of illusion in our lives, to go deep in order to reveal what is concealed.
There are nine water planets and we are definitely in the ninety-nine percent! All this water opens up a window to understanding; it’s all about perception. With a closer look, we realize how different our filters are. There are literally hundreds of ways to interpret every event of our lives! So, how can we get to the truth behind everything? Our teacher, Karen Berg, has great advice: if we want to feel the truth behind situations and people, and understand their needs better, we need to learn to clear our minds.
Our brains are like talking machines, analyzing, speaking, sometimes screaming… Oftentimes, it’s so we can't even hear ourselves think! And by “ourselves,” I mean, our TRUE selves, i.e., our souls. Our body is the temple, the housing of our souls. The job we have right now is to become more in touch with our real selves (our souls), with our real work.
This week, we can truly establish a connection with our inner Light. We can really open up our intuitive Light and become a more genuine version of ourselves.
So, practically speaking, what’s our plan?
First of all, we need to silence our brains! So, this week, let’s try practicing some deep breathing. We need it, since there is no air left in the stars! While our minds and hearts are like overheated engines, the lungs are the organs that cool off the fire. Deep breathing helps us feel better, calm down, and become more connected to our souls.
In the midst of the world confusion, a simple exercise we can always do is to just walk away and simply take a couple of deep breaths. You’ll feel better before you know it. Why? Air is considered the balancing element of the universe, or kabbalistically, the central column energy of the universe.
The second realization this week, is that we know EVERYTHING. It’s all on our hard drives, our souls. This week, we can expect déjà vu—sensations and images from our past, even past incarnations, or significant dreams, maybe even ESP. Since we benefit from additional energy of miracles and wholeness this week, our work will lead us to stronger sight and understanding.
This week, meditate on one of the 72 Names of God called, "revealing the concealed," and let’s open our hearts to the real Light.
Much love and Light to everybody, and happy wholly day of miracles!
