LAURA’S MIDHEAVEN NEWS

AM I ONLY DREAMING

Who has not found the Heaven below
Will fail of it above.
God’s residence is next to mind
His furniture is love.
-Emily Dickinson

On Sunday March 18 a New Moon Eclipse calls us to cross thresholds into transcendental realizations. Eclipses are times when something known is stripped away and we can choose to turn a corner. Pisces is an expression of endings and completions. We may realize this weekend and assimilate in the next 6 months that certain illusions have been operating in our lives.

We are dealing with the continuum between the sublime and the very ordinary. The question arises, “How do I apply my spiritual and idealistic principles in my daily life?” One extreme proposes, “If life goes the way I want it to often enough and I can scramble around to get a sense of order, I will prove to myself that I can trust Spirit. If I accomplish enough, God (and I) will reward me with the good life. The opposite extreme proposes, “I trust God and focus on the ideal and I’m just waiting to manifest everything. I do happen to notice that my life is crumbling around me and it is taking longer than I thought it should. Am I failing on my spiritual path?”

Between the New Age Nazis and the New Age Ninnies that we all are lies a balance point. Faith without works is dead. We can walk in the world as Love and be fully engaged in the practicalities but not attached to outcomes.

This eclipse connects with our Shadow side, Pluto. Subtlety, mystery and compassion are melting rigid judgments. Visionary advancement for ourselves and for humanity must include tolerance and acceptance. The last time there were eclipses in this Zodiac sector was spring of 1988. Was there a disillusionment that uncovered a whole arena of denial for you? We really don’t like to come down from our pink clouds, but when you avoid things, you are still tied to them with an umbilical cord. You don’t have to meet your fears with drama, just be open and humble. Spirit always bumps the next step into us. We have choices about how fully we engage.

March 30 brings a jolt from erratic surprising Uranus. This planet operates spasmodically and brings restlessness and an eye to the future. We will have a perturbation, if not a disturbance in “The Force”. It can clear the air like an azure New Mexico sky after a thunderstorm. You may have a wild hair up your you-know-what but never make it out the door. Clear-cut decisions may be difficult. It is more a time of releasing and forgiving your desires from the past year and from cycles that started in 1988. Come to peace with whatever has happened. You can’t yet imagine the fresh desires that the New Moon in Aries will propel in mid-April.

In The Stars – January

LAURA’S MIDHEAVEN NEWS

I HAVE A DREAM

Have you been running around like a chicken with its head cut off? Do new possibilities make you feel like it’s the last semester of your senior year of high school and you can’t wait to bust out of town and start a new life? The two most freedom-loving planets in the zodiac, Jupiter and Uranus are challenging each other on January 22. I have noticed the intense charge of energy already for several weeks. This configuration is activating the same part of the zodiac that brought us the first extra- vehicular space walks in 1965. It is time to get outside the box!

You may be feeling ecstatic bliss, or it may show up as chaotic restlessness and urgency. We all want to risk and explore. There is little tolerance for the status quo. These planets interfaced in a milder more heartfelt way last March. This time it is more conceptual and opinionated. The phrase, “question authority” is an understatement.

Some people may have high anxiety or nervous strain from overwhelm. If ideas of inferiority or obligation have imprisoned you, the sheer will and enthusiasm of this passage can override that programming. Do try something new, but check in with yourself and your loved ones. The energy can be very self-centered. Many babies will be thrown out with many bathwaters. You may not be using sound judgement. There is a difference between idealistic and unrealistic. Beware! You may be going like a house afire, but don’t leave scorched earth in your wake.

The real purpose of the changes to come is humanitarian. It is a realignment of political and spiritual laws with people’s idealisms. Note, there are all kinds of idealism on this planet. It will be harder than usual to be tolerant. Some people’s ideals include killing infidels, so there will be some violence in the name of truth.

There is a lot to learn from this beautiful exciting energy. The risks you take will shake up old concepts. Maybe try operating from no concepts. Have everything fresh.. Souls naturally want to explore and grow. The nature of our life is grace. Let us open to that truth.

In next month’s newsletter I will talk about the humorous implications of Mercury going retrograde the night before Valentine’s Day.
