Temple Astrolog: Ups and downs

Do you have a lot of energy in one moment and feel tired and exhausted in the next? Do you need extra sleep and need to recharge more often? Well you are not alone in this. The energies are shifting from high to low quickly and our bodies are receiving a lot of higher energies right now that needs to be grounded. So, let’s take a look at the sky and see what it can tell us.

High energy through the chakras

The Sun has just moved into the sign of Scorpio (transformation). It is right now opposite Uranus (unpredictable, kundalini) in the sign of Taurus. This can create a lot of transformation of higher energies in the physical body (taurus). If you are sensitive to when the life force (kundalini) is moving through your chakras you may very well feel that right now. Take extra care when lifting things and be extra kind to your back and spine.

If you have one or more chakras or places in your body that you know are more sensitive than the others pay attention to that and work with crystals or herbs to support that area. This is not the time to ignore the physical signals that your body gives you during spiritual exercises or meditation. Stop and listen, be gentle and loving towards your body and your chakra system. In the Alven tradition we have a saying “slow is fast” or “a slow pace is also a pace” and that could be a good advice right now.

It’s my life!

Another aspect of when Uranus is in opposition to the Sun, is the need for independence. Quite a rebellious energy that reminds of the outbursts of teenagers. Expressions or feelings like “I don’t need you!”, “It’s my life not yours!” “I want to do this my way!”

It’s hard to tell what will happen when Uranus is involved, since it is unpredictable. What we do know is that it’s good to slow things down a bit. Don’t do anything rash or thoughtless. This is not the time to rush up to the head office, yell at the boss and quit your job. Instead take a breath, ground the energies and think things through. If you are still upset after the sun has passed away from Uranus around the 8th of November, then there may be some deeper things going on that you need to look at.

Life as a teenager parent

If you do have teenagers at home during this transit, well then be prepared to take a time out for air every now and then. As parents take turns in resolving conflicts, call in grandparents so that you get a break. However difficult those kids may be now, they need you to help them ground this electric and high charged energy. This energy can also be passionate and very hot! (which is nice for the parents and their love life.)

But you do not want your teenagers to do things they later regret, or become a parent too early in life. To summarize this a bit of “teenager watch” may be needed at this time. Try to remember that every phase has it’s end, even if it does not feel like it right now. And perhaps remember how it was when you were young and full of life!

Deeper problems being resolved

The asteroid Juno related to relationships has been working with us for a while. Juno is an asteroid that many times marks ends and new beginnings in life. She is often active when we meet new important people in our lives, and when it’s time to let go.

Juno is right now in Scorpio (transformation) and is next to the Sun and in opposite to Uranus.  As the Sun meets up and crosses over Juno (in the next few days) a release of energy can happen. This can lead to that a tense situation is reaching it’s peak and must be dealt with. It may also be liberating and feel like you can breathe again. The peak is around the 8th of November, and is losing its influence around the 16th of November.

On a personal level it can help to think about what you are finished with in your life? What relationships or experiences do you not need to repeat again?

On a global scale we can ask the same questions. What are we as nations or people on the planet ready to let go of? What lessons have we learned and do not need to repeat?

Out dating

If you are single and out dating this can be both an exciting and crazy time. The combination of the Sun and Juno together in Scorpio is filled with passion and attraction. People are hungry to connect and meet someone special. But when we add Uranus to the mixture anything can happen. That could mean that the universe conspire for lovers to find each other in the most amazing way. But… it can also mean that you go on the weirdest dates ever. So be clever and be safe.

Ceres and being a part of a community

The asteroid Ceres can show where and how we get nourishment. That can be physical nourishment from food, but it may also be on other levels like emotional, mental or spiritual nourishment. She is now at 29 degrees in Aquarius and is just about to move ahead into the next sign, Pisces. In Aquarius she has taught us how to get energy from connecting in communities, and perhaps also the opposite, when and how we can be drained of energy in certain groups and at certain times. As she moves into the sign of Pisces it will help us to get nourishment from spiritual practices and by connecting to our soul. We may also feel a need to withdraw a bit from group activities and spend more time alone.

Sleep, meditate and recharge

Ceres is right now in a good aspect to Lilith Black Moon in Taurus and through that we can get help to sleep and recharge. But don’t expect it to be “business as usual” because Lillith Black Moon is never easy like that. It may start with you not getting sleep, having a harder time to meditate and so on. What you need to do is to be open and try new things. To refurnish the bedroom, go to bed earlier or later, meditate at other times could be things that help you. If you are open to changing things, you can get amazing results and have the best sleep or meditations that you have had in ages!

Ceres moves into the sign of Pisces around the 11th of November and will stay there until the beginning of March.
