By the Ocean and Loving it

What a beautiful day it is here on the Mendocino Coast. The weather is perfect, the ocean roars at a constant pace of fluid intention as she touches the land, caressing her into aliveness. I am here for two days. Still working on my book but also taking a lovely break and just having some fun.

What an amazing gift life is right now.

We are all in this amazing shift of consciousness and how we focus the energies will be magnified right now. My intent is to make that a blend of joy, light, love, peace, awareness, illumination, trust, acceptance, guidance, bliss, passion, and play.

I am sending out that thought and intention to all of you so we can continue this amazing dance of love and light together. Feel into the reality that all shifts and transitions are divinely guided and a wonder to behold.

You are a key in the doorways into the new reality. You may not be able to see it but it is the small things that allow for larger things to unfold later. It is our attitude of hope and the dreams that we intend that shape the reality in which we find ourselves.

Practicing peacefulness and conscious loving under these energies is like learning to ride big waves with enthusiasm and joy. You can choose to be afraid but why? You are here. You are on the wave whether you like it or not. You are going to have to choose a way to get back to shore. So why not choose with energy, gumption, vitality, love, compassion, trust, and courage?

The pulls of the universe are strong. They are forcing you to awaken and open your awareness and see the limitations in which you have placed yourself. They were good ideas at the time but eventually you will outgrow all safety nets.

In the unified field there is a consensus energy that is pushing everyone to open to another possibility. What is yours? How does that affect the greater design of life? How gracefully can you move into acceptance and trust?

You are safe and loved. Let go and allow flow.

Uranus/Pluto Square: Part Two
The planets continue to speak boldly, and as their daring messages sweep across the skies, from horizon to horizon, daily life reverberates with increasing intensity. No one is exempt from this quickening, even those among us who are making great strides toward joy – their joyousness will only increase. The current celestial influences are amplifying all areas of human endeavor, and as we attempt to adjust to this period of change emotions are sure to run high. Don’t be surprised if you or those near to you are raw one moment and defended the next. And don’t be startled if you find yourself withdrawing from situations you would normally embrace – or embracing situations you might otherwise avoid. Give yourself permission to be authentic, and let that authenticity be your guide.
Several interactions continue to this increased level of intensity. We are still in the throes of Venus Retrograde, and as the goddess of love continues to revisit her recent past, so do we. Don’t despair if you’re dwelling on memories of springs past; be willing to recognize your part in it, and then, use those reflections to grow. Venus’ domain includes relationships of every conceivable denomination from lovers to friends to cousins to neighbors to pen pals to pets, so don’t limit yourself to amorous interactions.
On June 6, a rare astronomical event occurs – the transit of Venus – during which an actual Venus/Sun conjunction can be seen. It won’t happen again for another 105 years. (This particular event happens in pairs; the last one was on June 8, 2004.) I’m not certain how to interpret this occurrence through an astrological perspective, but it makes sense to see it as a further illumination of Venus’ current position in Gemini, the Sign of communication. Ultimately, Gemini is about intimacy; twins are its symbol, and it is through day-to-day exchanges in our local environment that we learn to share our feelings and speak from the heart. When we are children, that means sharing with our family, and as we grow, our expanding environment includes friends, classmates, neighbors, and co-workers.
On June 4, a lunar eclipse occurs nearly one degree opposite the transit of Venus, at fourteen degrees Sagittarius. Lunar eclipses put the focus on practical matters, which means we can expect a lot of shared data (translation: shared feelings). Interestingly, during this eclipse, Mercury, the ruler of Gemini, occupies the degree at which Venus began her retrograde. Be clear and direct as you engage with others, and remember to listen just as carefully.
At an even deeper level of activity, we’re at the start of a nearly three-year sequence of interactions between Uranus and Pluto, the two most powerful astral agents of change, and their combined light illuminates a profound cycle of individual and collective transformation. There are no shortcuts through this inexorable portal of change, a condition that could make many of us anxious – even if what’s happening is positive and expansive. Try to quell that anxiety by remembering that the ultimate creative power is always in the present moment.
If you know your Ascendant and/or your Moon Sign, read that, too.
Aries March 21-April 19 
Chose your words carefully – what you say has an almost immediate effect. Even your sarcastic remarks will be examined for clues to a deeper hidden meaning.
Taurus April 20-May 20
You think it is a financial issue, but it’s really about how you value yourself. Take a moment to assess your most worthy attributes, and then, move into the next phase on the basis of that assessment.
Gemini May 21-June 21
It is all about you, and there is every reason to make the most of it. Put all self-consciousness aside and forget about what anyone thinks. This is your cosmic moment; share your abiding beauty.
Cancer June 22-July 22
Pay attention to your dreams – sleeping and waking. They are opening a wide window to your unconscious, a window that will allow you to explore your imagination and relish in its fullness.
Leo July 23-August 22
Allow your innate generosity to help you to identify where your gifts can be of greatest use to your community. You don’t have to start a movement, but if you do, make sure it is in keeping with your true values.
Virgo August 23-September 22
You’re in a culmination phase, where recent experiences are coalescing into a new level of responsibility and recognition. Stay focused on your goals and you’ll manage the spotlight with ease.
Libra September 23-October 22
Venus places the focus on your spiritual quest, and it doesn’t matter whether you’re searching externally, through travel, or internally, through contemplation. You’ll know your truth when you experience it.
Scorpio October 23-November 21
Read Taurus above, but add this: If you value yourself on the basis of how others see you, you’ll never arrive at an accurate assessment of your own worth.
Sagittarius November 22-December 21
You are definitely in a relationship intensive, and that means all your relations, from the goldfish to the person who delivers the mail. Watch your responses and you’ll gain insight into who makes you happiest.
Capricorn December 22-January 19
Whether it is a health or a work-related issue, you are certainly looking at your notion of service. Remember, help given with a grudge, helps no one, and can be especially harmful to you.
Aquarius January 20-February 18
When we’re in the midst of a creative process, we’re not watching, we’re participating, which is why the creative moment always feels vulnerable. Continue to follow your muse, and don’t worry about being exposed.
Pisces February 19-March 20
While “home is where the heart is” is a cliché, like all clichés it contains a gold nugget of truth. Make finding the home of your heart a priority, and that quest will have exponential and lasting benefits.

Ralfee Finn's Weekly Astrological Forecast from May 23-29, 2012

I have been personally inundated with people who are feeling the energetic pinch and I have noticed that for a long time now (2008 through May 2012) that I have tried to pick my words carefully for clients and people who read my newsletter and website. It is interesting to me that the closer we are getting to this Uranus/Pluto Square people are becoming more and more reactive and agitated by words and projections of others. I believe this is partially due to the very reactive state of affairs in which the world is in right now.

In general, I attempt in my own limited way to be a voice of balance and honor for all sides and ways of perceiving. At this time in history it is tricky to do because people are so on an edge that the slightest trigger is creating heightened reactions from others. It is as if we are bumping into our old reactive self and we now have an opportunity to do something different if at all possible.

When it is happening to me, I try to take a look at the opposing side and attempt to view from their lens of reality. It is often very interesting. Perception is a very unique and personal thing. Each person is attempting to express a reality, desire, or intent that is very positive. What becomes the challenge is when something comes across not in the way, mood, or energy that was intended. This is the moment in which we find ourselves.

I think it is partially because of the Venus retrograde in Gemini. It creates a negative, bitchy, volatile energy that is difficult to negotiate. After all when the Goddess of Love is going backwards let us just say that she is not in the best mood. Any women will tell you that when the Goddess is not happy then no one is happy! Ha!

Venus retrograde was seen as a harbinger of war in both Babylonian and Meso-American Astrology. The Trojan war was also fought over love. So everyone take a breath and learn to have patience with all those that you love and that love you. It is about learning how to not react but to observe your own inner reactions and learn to respond properly and with love and compassion when such energies are heightened and place all of us under such strain. Love yourself enough to practice patience with everyone. You will be greatly rewarded when Venus goes direct the end of June.

Uranus/Pluto Square: Part One
This week – and for many, many weeks to come – the planets remind us that history actually does repeat itself. But don’t confuse this cosmic repetition with the ongoing retrograde review of recent personal relationships patterns; that retrospective continues for another few weeks, and then recedes. The deeper repetitive pattern we’re in is part of a much older cycle, a cycle whose signature is rebellion and revolution, turmoil and disruption, and if we’re willing to learn from history, then it will be a cycle that provides a much deeper way of understanding our human situation. It’s a celestial dimension that adds new meaning to the cliché about living in “interesting times”: We’ve just entered a three-year cycle of seven exact squares between Uranus and Pluto that are certain to accelerate the already rapid pace of personal and collective transformation.

Astrology sees interactions among all the outer planets – Jupiter to Pluto – as repetitive patterns that make it possible to recognize specific collective cultural trends. From that perspective, all Uranus/Pluto interactions signify intense processes of change and revolution. Uranus represents a catalyzing force that disrupts the status quo. Pluto represents the principle of death and eventual rebirth. And when they interact, their combined presence manifests as dynamic and dramatic chain reactions that engender shifts in attitudes and action. The movements for civil rights, gender rights, and workers’ rights can all be identified as manifestations of Uranus/Pluto contacts.

The current series of squares began with a Uranus/Pluto conjunction that occurred from 1965 through 1966. The beginning of a cycle sets the tone for what will follow. The Sixties were a time of disruptive upheaval, as a deep desire for freedom moved many to search for new, creative answers to the same disturbing circumstances that always tend to mire us in the worst of what it means to be human: The need to exploit others on the basis of race, gender, religion, and economics. The violence of this exploitation can be seen as desperate attempts to assuage our existential anxiety by creating the illusion of safety through the delusion of superiority.

The first square takes place on June 24. On June 6, 1966, in Cape Town, South Africa, Bobby Kennedy delivered a Day of Affirmation Speech to the National Union of South African Students, in which he referenced the notion of living in “interesting times” and what is required of those who do. He calls those interesting times – nearly fifty years ago -- times of “danger and uncertainty” but also times that are “more open to creative energy” than “any other time in history.”

His words still ring true.

Many cultural paradigms shifted during the Sixties, but the crucial issues remain the same today. And because they do, the next several years of Uranus/Pluto squares are sure to inspire the movements for social justice. Those movements will reflect the current cultural syntax, but they will also express the same concerns about the well being of our fellow humans. If you haven’t already, now would be a good time to contemplate how you want to respond to the challenge of those concerns. Remember: Our collective reality is created by our combined individual efforts.

If you know your Ascendant and/or your Moon Sign, read that, too.

March 21-April 19  
Create greater strength, internal as well as external, by reaffirming your commitment to integrating your deepest values. Sounds like a no-brainer, but walking your talk always requires effort.

April 20-May 20
The secret is learning how to visualize the outcome without falling into the traps of negative thinking or fantasy. Focus your efforts on what will ultimately be the most soul-satisfying picture of reality.

May 21-June 21 
You’ve changed, and there is no reason to doubt your process, so take your time emerging from your cocoon and simply enjoy flexing your new, beautiful wings.

June 22-July 22 
Choose your partners wisely, because no matter what the surface focus may be, the underlying context is all about your alliances, personal as well as professional.

July 23-August 22
Rather than becoming confused by mixed messages, deepen your commitment to keeping your own counsel. I’m not suggesting you ignore the opinion of others; I’m simply advising you to listen to your heart.

August 23-September 22 
Instead of squandering your energy on insignificant matters, save your efforts for important endeavors. Yes, the details contribute to the overall situation, but it’s the big picture that determines the outcome.

September 23-October 22
You’re still in a deep process of revolutionizing your relationships – all of them, including how you relate to yourself. Once again, pay attention to what you need in order to feel safe and secure from the inside out.
Scorpio October 23-November 21
Yes…you are uncomfortable, but only because you’re in training, preparing for deeper, more consistent daily interactions with friends and family. Embracing intimacy is often a lot easier than resisting it.

November 22-December 21
Move into your creative energy and be bold, innovative, and confident in your choices. Not every idea will fly, but you’ll gain solid, tangible momentum that will boost your enthusiasm and soothe your anxiety.

December 22-January 19
You’re not in danger; you’re in process. And as the bottom of your psychic pond continues to be disturbed, the more opportunities you will have to see what lies beneath the surface of predictable interactions.

January 20-February 18
Consider it a challenge of imagination: Can you allow yourself to envision the necessary next steps without the fear of doing or saying the wrong thing? This may sound easy, but it will require increased awareness and skill.

February 19-March 20
It’s all about attitude: If you embrace your responsibilities, they won’t feel so burdensome. If you’re willing to speak the truth about what you need, you’ll find it much easier to release your anxiety about being left out.

Ralfee Finn's Weekly Frequency for May 16-22, 2012

Weekly Frequency by Ralfee Finn May 16-22, 2012

The routines of daily life diverge from their normal rhythms this week, as several powerful celestial patterns continue to pull hearts, as well as minds, in diverse directions. This scattering of attention is sure to produce a peculiar psychic and/or emotional disequilibrium – but don’t worry about the tilt. Life isn’t wobbling completely out of control, even if there are moments when some of us are likely to feel overwhelmed by persistent situations that no matter how hard we try just won’t seem to “straighten out.” Truth is, the idea of getting anything “straight” is its own kind of challenge right now, given that we’re also in the thrall of an astral time warp, straddling past, present, and future realities, all at the same time. Balance is key to handling this astral flux, and while that might sound like a simple solution, finding and maintaining a steady internal stance in the midst of so many potent shifts requires a deep, perhaps even new, level of concentration and skill.

Three significant configurations contribute to this week’s wobble. First, Venus just began a retrograde phase on May 15 that lasts until June 27. Venus, the goddess of relationships, is retracing her recent path through Gemini, the Sign of information, which means many of us are revisiting data about our relationships or our relationship habits. We’ve been in this Venus intensive since the beginning of May, when Venus began her trine to Saturn – a positive alliance that lasts until the end of the month. Saturn is in Libra, the Sign of relating, and one of the Signs Venus rules. Because Saturn represents the principle of learning, many of us have been experiencing profound lessons in intimacy.

At its core,  Libra is the Sign where we attempt to embrace a process of learning how to relate to another human being as an equal without surrendering a sense of self or asking the other person to do the same. This is a difficult dynamic for many of us, especially when conditioning keeps us enslaved to unconscious patterns that often take the form of projections, making it nearly impossible to see the other person clearly. Staying conscious in the midst of old emotional patterns is among the most difficult personal work of all, and while the current relationship intensive may be exhausting, it is providing real opportunities for insight and growth.

A solar eclipse on May 20 exacerbates this intensive, as it reveals hidden patterns. During a solar eclipse, the New Moon overshadows the Sun, and from an astrological perspective, this “reversal” of light can be interpreted as the power of unconscious drives to overshadow conscious concerns, allowing previously withheld feelings, yours or others, to see the light of day. Eclipses distort time, so you or a partner may already be experiencing this heightened state.

The Uranus/Pluto square is also tightening its grip, and as we move closer to the first exact square, emotional reactions are sure to run high. So in addition to making “balance” your mantra, also try to choose kindness whenever possible. It will go a long way toward alleviating the tension of extreme reactions – yours or others’.

If you know your Ascendant and/or your Moon Sign, read that, too.

Aries March 21-April 19  
Conversations not only reveal what significant others may have been hiding. They also have the power to reveal what you may have been keeping from yourself.

Taurus April 20-May 20

Be completely honest with yourself about your financial condition, and then use that candor to create greater stability. I realize that sounds like an oxymoron, but sometimes a paradox is a powerful catalyst.

Gemini May 21-June 21 

Call it an identity crisis if you like, but you can also embrace the idea that sooner or later you were going to merge from your cocoon and greet the world through an entirely different persona.

Cancer June 22-July 22 

The answer could come to you in a brilliant blaze of sudden insight, or it could sneak up on you quietly. Either way, you’ll feel confident about being able to handle a variety of challenging situations.

Leo July 23-August 22

Think about your relationship to success, and then contemplate how you could make real strides toward expanding your ability to share your gifts with the world.

Virgo August 23-September 22 

Ask yourself what you are truly called to, and don’t accept or settle for a standard answer. Really consider what brings you the deepest daily satisfaction – and if you’re not doing it, do it.

Libra September 23-October 22

You’re searching for answers, and whether your search is physical or metaphysical, it’s sure to lead you out of your comfort zone. Be brave, and even if it’s uncomfortable, stretch.

Scorpio October 23-November 21

You’re digesting and metabolizing new information about how you value yourself, and because you have your own filtration system, this process of self-evaluation might take a while. Give yourself all the time you need.

Sagittarius November 22-December 21

You’ll be surprised at just how quickly certain relationships will clarify if you stay centered and committed to coming from the heart. Even if it’s difficult news, just stick to the truth – it will set you free.

Capricorn December 22-January 19
In some ways you’re right – it is a career crisis, but it isn’t necessarily negative. Be willing to look at your situation from a completely different perspective, and you’ll discover a gold mine of useful information.

Aquarius January 20-February 18
A deeper insight into your creative process might provide a better understanding why it is so important to you. This isn’t about altering your method; it’s about understanding how it sustains you.

Pisces February 19-March 20
The emphasis is on home, and how you create safety internally as well as externally. Be patient with this process and you’ll strengthen your ability to belong to yourself and with others.

Ralfee Finn's Weekly Frequency May 9-15, 2012

I love this image. It represents to me the Uranus/Pluto Square astrologically. The Uranus in Aries is like the rocket trying to push us forward. The turtle represents the old school Pluto in Capricorn energy resisting the changes that this time is pushing us all forward. This pressure and stress is culminating in June as this energy is propelling us forward into uncharted waters. So get your turtle ready as all the turtles are about to move at warp speed by the end of June.

In the meantime here is Ralfee's Weekly Frequency. Enjoy.



Ralfee Finn's Frequency May 9-15, 2012.

We’re under the influence this week, held in the sway of several powerful celestial forces, all of which manage to maintain the status quo: a consistent escalation of intensity, individual and collective, that isn’t ending anytime soon. (I know; just keep breathing, deeply.) Handling this acceleration is likely to challenge even the most conscious among us, especially over the course of the next few weeks as the stars emphasize partnerships of every denomination. Relationship issues are seldom simply easy, even when they work well. Eventually, every true meeting of the heart is certain to bring up differences. Whether those differences are political, emotional, financial, cultural, or spiritual, figuring out a skillful way to resolve the tension always takes a moment or two. And that’s the current task: Finding the cardio-resilience to make room for other, equally valid, points of view. Unfortunately, in times of stress many of us tend to revert to our default settings, standard emotional responses that no longer serve, yet seem like a safe bet if only because they’ve worked before. But given the current climate of transformation, those habituations could boomerang easily, especially if they override deeper, more authentic responses. Make every effort to stay conscious of where you might be reacting out of habit, and then do your best to move your response into present time.

Venus is at the epicenter of the intensity. The goddess of love and beauty still trines Saturn; she is in Gemini, the Sign of conversation, while Saturn, symbolizing knowledge born from experience, is in Libra, the Sign of relating. They are having a deep dialogue about alliances, which means many of us are also contemplating our personal and professional bonds. On May 15, Venus goes retrograde, and all week long, as she slows down in preparation for her “course correction,” certain areas of life are likely to feel stalled. She’s retrograde until June 27.

Venus Retrograde adds a deeper octave to the already ongoing relationship discussion, and as she revisits her path, it would be wise to revisit your patterns. The actual review doesn’t have to occur in person, but that being said, old lovers could get in touch, and they will definitely want to talk. The presence of Saturn will skew these exchanges toward the deep. Whether those tête-à-têtes will fan old embers or spark new flames is uncertain; what is clear, however, is that these dialogues provide opportunities for insightful intimacy. Gemini is also the Sign of siblings and cousins, which means several of these conversations could take place with family members.

And some of those Venus Retrograde conversations could be quite surprising. A solar eclipse on May 20 also occurs in Gemini, and because eclipses always tend to reveal hidden knowledge, and because Gemini just loves dispensing data, some of us may be saying or hearing things we always suspected were true but could never prove.

The best news is the continuing Sun/Jupiter conjunction, which is spreading its jovial light far and wide, supporting laughter as a potent remedy for healing hearts. Let this exuberant relationship enhance your heart’s resilience and keep you optimistic about your opportunities to transform.
If you know your Ascendant and/or your Moon Sign, read that, too.

Aries March 21-April 19  

Your capacity to manifest is potent, so be precise about what it is you want to bring into being, and then focus all of your strength on actualizing your vision.

Taurus April 20-May 20

There are several opportunities for you to create a greater sense of safety and security. Take a strong stand on your own behalf, but lead with your brain rather than your brawn.

Gemini May 21-June 21
The old way isn’t working – that’s just a fact. But if you’re willing to turn the situation on its head by considering a new, radical perspective, you’ll find an appropriate solution.

Cancer June 22-July 22
Each of your partners holds a key to your emotional health. So observe the company you keep, and you’ll discover several significant pieces of your partnership puzzle.

Leo July 23-August 22

There are real opportunities to make strong financial strides toward your goals. Marshall that famous strength and courage, and continue to do whatever it takes to make your dream a reality.

Virgo August 23-September 22

Trust is your key word. Continue to believe in your choices, and nothing will interfere with your ability to find a win/win solution to each situation in need of resolution.

Libra September 23-October 22
It looks and feels like a financial problem, but it’s really a crisis of value. Hold fast to your priorities, but also be willing to make adjustments when necessary.


Scorpio October 23-November 21

You’re talking – a lot – to friends and family and anyone who will listen, but also listen closely to what you choose to say. Give yourself permission to be candid, but also remember that your words will be transformative.

Sagittarius November 22-December 21

There are opportunities for you to make tangible gains, but before you can make the most of this fertile terrain, you have to leave behind a pessimistic attitude that might inhibit your innate enthusiasm.

Capricorn December 22-January 19
Rather than worrying about the outcome, trust in the process. Of course there will be obstacles – whenever we take a risk, romantic or creative, there are always challenges to overcome.

Aquarius January 20-February 18

Maintain your balance by continuing to apply a creative approach to every problem. It’s not necessary to have a perfect response to each situation; all that’s required is a thoughtful one.

Pisces February 19-March 20

Personal transformation is seldom easy, and it’s been a long road from there to here. As you look back on the journey and review your choices, don’t forget to acknowledge all the hard work you’ve put into the process.

Intuitive Patterns for the Month of June 2012

Remember the Matrix's Red/Blue Pill Choice?

At the beginning of June we are still in the shifting tides of the eclipses from May 20 (solar eclipse in Gemini) and June 4 (lunar eclipse in Sagittarius). There are many of us that wonder, “What else could the universe possibly throw our way?”. But then if you have been following these articles, you will be aware of the looming Uranus/Pluto Square on June 24. It will be interesting to see what patterns will become revolutionary and revelatory for the next three years as these squares hit and point out where globally we have had enough. 

I am sending out my positive thoughts for the United States. I believe that we have made so many corrections since the end of 2008 that the negative hits might be minimal. And I understand that in the worldly sense, other countries are going to feel the hit much more.

This pattern on June 24 is really about how each of us internally handles the conflicts between our inner independent parts that want change and movement and then our more conservative parts that want things to go back to the old ways and methods. At this point I remind everyone that you rarely can move backwards under such situations and the more anyone tries to suppress the forward energy of change the more revolutionary it becomes. 

That last statement is a hint and a warning.

Our ability to adapt to changing circumstances and environments is what makes us amazing. Change is the pulse of life. Change is what keeps things exciting. Change is what makes all innovations possible. Change usually comes because of necessity. Change manifests when things are not working the old way and the majority is finally fed up with the struggles and upsets that are grinding on each of us.

Everyone has a snap point. Everyone has a line in the sand in which they finally are willing to stand up and say something. It is only through intense suppression and misery that we find ourselves uncomfortable enough that we choose a new path.

What I find so interesting is that stresses cause the energies to build up until there is a seismic shift that ignites a group, which then ignites the world. (I remember the fall of the Berlin Wall.) From places of intense suppression can come radical and sudden movement. That is where we are heading. 

Now I think we have taken such a huge hit financially in the Unites States that I hope and pray that we do not go further down. But when I look at other countries I am not so optimistic. In this modern world we are all so interconnected that a big shift in Greece could affect the financial markets everywhere. The collapse of the Japanese government trying to bolster the electrical company after the greatest nuclear disaster in the history of the world could collapse the Nikkei index and affect everyone.
This square should make all political situations very interesting over the next few months.

The strain has really gotten to everyone and I am grateful that astrologically there are some pluses that are helping to mitigate some of this intensity. I am also noticing that certain astrological signs are fairing better than others. (You would know who you are because you are finally feeling a bit better even as others around you are feeling the pinch.)

The way through this pattern is to stay open and kind to others. Be careful and watch your projections on others and give everyone the benefit of the doubt for the next few months. Everyone is doing the very best they know how and remember that loyalty to your friends and family and trust in yourself is essential right now. The waters of this ocean are going to be temperamental and rough for the next few years and so in moments such as these it is best to rely on the skills of your soul’s consciousness and the divine guidance that each of us has available to us.

Life is about synchronicity and timing. Believe it or not this is the time and this is the moment of great things. It is necessary to evolve beyond our old patterning and perspectives. How we do it and how much consciousness we can hold with each shift is the key to maintaining balance in such times. I personally do not want to regret things that I might say or do when I am under stress. The best way is to practice staying present and authentic in each and every moment. These times are not about getting what you want but about being present to the greater flow of energy that is moving everyone. It is difficult to step outside of the self and see the situations with the open eyes of love when we are afraid, angry, triggered, upset, and contracted.

But that is the best time to practice. When you can step out of the “Me” and look with the eyes of what the situation actually needs to move forward and open everyone, something inside shifts. It is childish to think that we should always get what we want. A mature person knows that intrinsically and relaxes into the raw truth of the moment and accepts what is. 

We all want to find a doorway to national peace and acceptance. We want to be a country that is the “way show-er” to new patterns that serve everyone. But it first starts with us.

The patterns of June are here to awaken us and help us reveal the truth of the upcoming changes that are necessary for universal acceptance and awareness. We are all one regardless of race, religion, money, power, culture, or sexual preference. We are being moved by something divine and greater than our beliefs and we are being moved together as a large group. Intolerance is becoming less and less acceptable. Venomous spewing of hate and voices that promote lies, confusion, and discord are not going to be allowed to continue. And it is not governments or officials that will regulate it. It will be a global voice of condemnation and disgust that will finally turn the tide. When we speak up together as one voice that is about love and light then the dark voices and energies recoil and hide from the revealing light of truth. 

In the month of June, step back from positioning yourself and look at the greater whole. Does your position serve to open others or to shut them down? Does it serve to expand tolerance and acceptance or does it create discord and dissonance? Do you need to be right to bolster your polarized past behavior and to validate your prejudices or do you want to cultivate being a person of kindness, love, and acceptance? 

What position do you want to be in during this historic time? How will the bright light of history see you in the future? Will you be proud of your position and the lineage that you give your children and grandchildren? 

The choice is yours. The shift will happen regardless and all positions in the field are necessary for change. Everyone will be the expression of love in whatever form he or she chooses. We are all pieces in a grand puzzle. All of the positions are essential to bring an awakening to the consciousness of humanity. Stay awake and practice peacefulness this month.

Ralfee Finn's Astrological Weekly Frequency, May 2-8, 2012

We are all feeling the increase in tension and power that the coming months are bringing. I am grateful that what I am also feeling is the interconnectedness of each of us and how we are contributing to the whole. The flows and shifts are moving all of us and I feel as if we are all ocean creatures being pulled and pushed by the tides coming in and out. We move as one and we feel a symmetry with each other. That understanding is also creating a compassion within me for each and every one of us as we together are part of something much greater than each of us individually. Let us move as one. Let us breathe as one. Let us become something great.

Weekly Frequency
May 2-8, 2012

The planets tilt the routines of daily life toward even greater intensity this week, so don’t be surprised if you find yourself increasingly skewed toward how things “should” be. These leanings could include opinions, decisions, or actions you never imagined you would embrace or embody; or, conversely, you might find yourself clinging to established positions with a fierce and poignant loyalty that refuses to be budged by reality. We’re in a process of transition, in preparation for an even longer process of transformation, and the next several weeks represent a “that was then, and this is now” threshold between what was, what is, and what will be. Figuring out how to move through these shifts is going to take skill. Transitions are often uncomfortable, especially when they require a change of mind or a change of heart – or both. Anticipate feeling vulnerable or exposed. Do whatever it is you do to protect yourself, but make sure you stay open to the potential for profound change. Personal pole shifts require courage, but they are almost always worth the energy and effort.
The astrological threshold we’re standing on opens into several years of squares between Uranus and Pluto, the two most powerful change agents in the astrological system. The first exact square is June 24, and while that sounds as if it’s too far in the future to have an effect right now, from the perspective of cosmic time, we’re already in it; Uranus and Pluto signatures are always present in times of revolution and evolution. Protest thrives under this influence, and as the next several months unfold, we are certain to see an increase in dissent. Expect those demonstrations to be more than political; personal revolutions are just as likely, as individuals chafe from restraints, real or imagined. Over the next several weeks, as this square tightens its grip, daily life will preview what needs to shift. Pay close attention to what you are resisting the most – that’s usually the first sign that something’s gotta give.
A Venus/Saturn trine adds a sobering and steady touch to the week. Venus is in Gemini, the Sign of communication. Saturn is in Libra, the Sign of relationships. And as they form a positive connection, we have opportunities to do the same, especially through conversations aimed at conveying important information. This trine supports heartfelt exchanges, but be careful not to be too blunt. And as always, consider your situation from the other person’s point of view before you make proclamations you might regret.
A Sun/Jupiter conjunction, in Taurus, provides an optimistic attitude that can also serve as a soothing balm to mounting tension. The core of this idealistic combination is joyous vitality. It also fosters humor. Laughter is the greatest medicine for the heart, so this week, when possible, lift your spirit by finding the funny – it’s almost always there.
