Dark Moon 10 Jan 2016
What happens if I take back my power?
By Katharina Bless
Mercury has turned retrograde on Jan 7th. This Dark Moon in Sagittarius is calling for another release of blockages which are deeply rooted in our society. Retrograde Mercury is connected with a half square to a Saturn/Venus conjunction in Scorpio. There is another orange aspect, between Chiron and Mars, a 1 ½ square, both karmic aspects, which often show a powerful impact in our daily lives, since very old patterns are coming to the surface.
This kind of karmic aspects trigger often more fear and frustration, since we don’t know where they come from, we have no memory of the cause, just feel the effect. All we have to do now, is to simply accept that this feeling is present. Dive into it and find out what you can do about it. Reach out to the depths of your personal consciousness to sense what does not feel right.
The involvement of Saturn/Venus asks us to look at the limitations of women in society. At the same time, even if your are in the body of a man, the female balance in the whole world. The dramas going on in Germany, in which large numbers of males group together and attack women is a very sad and an impressive sample of the imbalance. Since these are men from a Muslim belief/doctrine, it is probably ok to harass and rob a women who is showing her face freely!
Several spoke persons of official Islamic organization appeal to the public not to judge all people of this religion because of these incidents. Of course, not everyone would do that, but none of them mentioned a word of apology to the women who have been victims in this scenario.
What every body wants is a good life, peace and happiness. Still, we don’t have this “good life” and could ask why not? If we look at the world today, there are some who belief that we do and don’t need to change any thing, ignoring the facts. This chart shows clearly that the programming and dogma of the role of being a woman and being a man needs healing. A revision of the understanding what “humanity” means is greatly and desperately needed!
To find this healing we have to look at a bigger picture, look beyond the fence within and without. Moon/Sun in Sagittarius suggest that we descend into our “underworld” and face the Plutonic forces within first to understand the true meaning of being human. Hu-Man ~ Wo-Man.
At the same time look what is going on in the world and see the what it reflects on human behavior, what it triggers and what the consequences are of such behavior.
In this coming year the usual role plays everywhere will be questioned and changed. Masks are torn down and sweet camouflage will be exposed and show the truth beneath the sugar coating.
The strong square from the Dark Moon/Pluto conjunction to Uranus is a clear sign. Uranus is not retrograde anymore since Dec. 27 ‘15 and brings things to the surface for all to see. Explosions and implosions on all level are happening and more will happen. Suppressed violence and other feelings will surface and being acted out. Spontaneous insights for the individual who is ready to see. Those who still would like to remain in blissful ignorance will be pushed and kicked from unexpected directions to change their point of view, maybe the rug is being pulled from under their feet if they like it or not. It depends if one is ready and open for changes, then they don’t have to come like an impact hammer!
The fact that since quite some time and in the next couple years we have Neptune, the ruler of Pisces in Aquarius and Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius in Pisces, shows a time quality of massive changes. Now that both planets are direct, things can move. Neptune will turn retrograde in June, and this will be the time to face the feelings. Those who are not working and prepare on an internal level, might be feeling disheartened, disillusioned and dissatisfied which will keep them from achieving anything.
Therefore we can use this time now to dig in deeper and look at the role that we play, have a closer look to what we believe and where we judge. It is the time to look up for the wisdom of these souls who are not telling you what you have to belief but try to free you from dogma, old beliefs and prisons.
As long as we belief that we are the victims and that what is happening to us is the fault of someone else, suffering will not end and people will not be able to find their own power. Only those who are willing to look at their true Self, at the beliefs within they can change their lives. One who is changing his own life, changes the whole, since each individual is a microcosm within the macrocosm.
This situation in the world can’t be changed by any kind of activism or trying to change the things outside. If we change, we change the world. If we realize that we are part of the creation of the whole and change our part, the whole will change. This is the only way!
In taking back ones creative power, the inherited divine right to create, the world will change. The outer world shows just a mirror of the situation that we are stuck in a one way street and need to find the courage to turn around and look into the opposite direction.
The constellation of this SkyView Chart shows the way out. The way is not outside of us, but inside. It can be found within the contemplation of our own Self, the perseverance to dig deeper until we find our true divine power again, the power to create a world we want. The power to overcome the limitations of those who steal our power and start to use it again to the well-being of all.
It would be a good to take some time for the contemplation the next couple of weeks: What happens if I take back my power? How much do I fear my own power? Am I ready for responsibility = response- ability? How do I want to use my power to create a different world? What difference can I make? What happens if I don’t give my power away anymore?
This is the topic I am working on since years, even though I have fallen back into being a victim several times, each time it took an effort to move beyond. But on my journey, I realize, that each time was a totally different experience and taught me to step a rung higher on the ladder of my conscious journey. It was not falling back, even though it looked sometimes like it would be, but it filled in a blank of experience I didn’t have yet. Only if we talk and act from our own experience, we can move on.
We can do it! If more people start to look for their creativity, the possible alternatives in their lives and what gift they can bring into community life, will allow them to create something special and support not only their own existence, they will feel the power that flows in all actions and projects and eventually back to the individual who sent it out multiplied!
Maybe you start to grow some of your own food? There are so many possibilities, even if you are living in a high rise building in a city or if you have just a little back yard.
Start to be good to your body, create things that are maybe needing a bit of an effort, but just until you got up! Maybe you take a walk or go swimming, in any case, you will experience the elated happiness that such kind of activity and creativity rewards you with! Once we leave the couch and stop sitting in front of the deadly rays of TV and computers for too many hours, we start to really live again!

**SkyView Astrology (outer circle) works with the real star-constellations. Western/Tropical Astrology (inner circle) has nothing to do with the stars anymore and their 1˚ Aries is 28˚ apart from the true star constellations, the Vedic/Indian system is 6˚ degrees different. SkyView Astrology does not tell you who you are, but shows the blueprint/roadmap of one’s life and the time quality. It also is no fortune telling tool and can’t predict the future. The Western Astrology has nothing to do with the Stars, but is a method to show how the sun moves trough the season – which makes a certain sense in the northern hemisphere, but doesn’t make any sense bear and below the equator in the southern hemisphere – for more information go to www.silverdove.net
For your convenience I list the dates when the sun enters the signs:
Aries: 25° April 18, Taurus: 36° – May 13, Gemini: 28° – June 21 Cancer: 20° – July 20, Leo: 36° – Aug 10, Virgo: 44° – Sept 16, Libra: 23° Oct 30, , Scorpio: 25° – Nov 23, Sagittarius: 33° – Dec 17, Capricorn: 28° – Jan 20, Aquarius: 25° – Feb 16, Pisces: 37° – March 11
The dates of the transition of the sun are based on the guidelines of IAU (International Astronomical Union).**
