An Amazing 11:11:11:11:11 Portal!

*Full Moon in Gemini at 11 degrees
*Sun in Sagittarius at 11 degrees
*Mercury (ruler of Gemini) goes retrograde at 29 degrees Sagittarius 
  - 29 is a critical degree which enhances the influence
  - 29 degrees adds to the number 11
*Neptune is at 11 degrees in exact square to the Sun and Moon at 11 degrees opposite each other
*Jupiter (ruler of the Sun) is at 11 degrees trine to Neptune

WOW! All happening today; in the last month of the year, leading us into 2018 which is an 11 Universal Year!

Number 11 is a very potent spiritual master number.  It represents a gateway where instinct & intent can be used to harness personal power. With all the influences of this alignment the focus is on change and flexibility, realization of what resonates with you and what lights you up and makes your heart sing.. Be free to express & create. Shine your light and focus on how you wish to share it while being true to yourself.
This is dynamic time to feel into your confidence, to step forward and to be adventurous....A very spiritual time as well, so do what connects you to source in a soul filled way. 

My moon meditation shares a giant Gemini glyph sign with 2 ornamental pillars (Gemini is expressive and fun) which represents the 11 gateway... Notice how the Gemini sign is so reflective of the 11 portal gateway! How brilliant is that! 

I combined the sign of Jupiter ( Expansion, Knowledge, Abundance, Gratitude, Good Will representing Our Inherent Gifts) and Neptune (Spirituality, Inspiration, Intuition representing Higher Self) with the archer's hand that pulls the bow and arrow of Sagittarius (Higher Purpose) encased in the portal energy of 11 gateway. All point to a combined symbol of the sun and moon ...floating above the clouds (representing Gemini's air aspect)

Always with intention I create but it is with trust and allowance that I am delightfully surprised how spirit guides my
creative heart into form. In gratitude I joyfully share these moon meditations with you.

New Moon in Scorpio,

Due to intermittent power outages, heavy workload and multiple committed engagements this week,
my moon meditation is coming to you a couple days late accompanied by a very brief summary.

Scorpio New Moon and Scorpio Sun brings increased intensity to bring what's hidden to light and for
deep transformation to occur.

In my image, Scorpio's watery energy calls to surrender (river flow) into the truth of your heart so it
may be brought into the light.  Gently be held in hands of love holding space for inner healing
and miracles of our full potential (flowers in full bloom, shining light of the rising sun over high mountains) 
Varied florals (expressions of self) flourish around the heart reaching to a Butterfly Mandala floating above
the heart representing transformation.  2 Scorpions represent both Sun and Moon in Scorpio.

Sending out much love and blessings to all,
Sha*

This rich earth/water combination gives way to the power of our creations in both the physical and emotional realms.
There is a beautiful opening available during this Full Moon November 4th timing. Both Taurus and the number 4 are
connected to the earth assisting us to bring our intentions & ideas into form. Scorpio influences us to be in alignment
with our abundance, resourcefulness and ideals.

Taurus –  earth, the physical,  grounded ruled by Venus (planet of love, prosperity)   
beauty, love, sensuality, pleasure and earthly pleasures, romance, abundance, devotion, family, responsibility, values

Scorpio – water, the emotional, ruled by Mars (planet of action and passion) and Pluto (planet of transformation) 
focus, balance, bravery, ambition, intuition, independence, calm, sensuality

The Day - Number 4 is the builder number. .. carries the essence of structure, strength, stability, “salt of the earth”
,conscientiousness, devotion, responsibility

The Month - Number 11 is a master number, the double one... equals 2 … brings balance, union, represents a gate or portal,
rebirth, higher consciousness, divinity

The Year – 2017 = 10 = 1  is the number of beginnings, primal force, instant manifestation 

Other positive astrological influences occurring during this Full Moon:
 
Sun is conjunct Jupiter – the  planet of abundance, joy, higher consciousness, blessings

Sun is  trine with Neptune & Moon is sextile Neptune – the planet of spiritual connection, mysticism, intuition,
psychic ability, creative energy

Venus, ruling planet of Taurus occurs at the same degree as the Libra New Moon 2 weeks ago – which empowers
the Venus energy that much more.

November's energy is super powerfilled & supportive, holding opportunities for abundance, love and magical
manifestations all beautifully guided by this harmonious Taurus Full Moon gateway. 

I created my Taurus the Bull playfully as “Taurus the Bulldog” fully laden with roses and a blooming heart bursting
with illumination, insights and passion. He stands his ground, strong and steady atop the crest of a hill between a
gate of 2 (11) tall flowers each adorned by 2 leaves (2x2 =4) The dots and bubbles surrounding "Taurus the Bulldog"
are potential and magical possibilities...All that is coming into form are the stars! A heart is positioned at the third eye
for heart centered intuition, guidance and higher consciousness... the horns extend from this awareness tenderly
holding in balance the Taurus symbol high in the cosmos. (mirroring again the portal/gateway)
I had fun with this image. I feel it carries the light, loving energy available to us around this Full Moon.

Extending Joy & Blessings,
Sha*

Libra – Element Air, Ruled by Venus (Goddess of Love)

Favourable opening to bring balance into our relationships, and our life. With Libra exact opposite Uranus (Aries) there is a good chance of unexpected changes to occur so being open to how this new moon time unfolds is beneficial.   Air governs the mental realm therefore let us pay attention to our thoughts, beliefs and intentions at this time and focus on desirable outcomes. This space holds great potential for new beginnings, new insights, new connections & new creations. We are also in the time of the harvest (northern hemisphere) which reminds us to be thankful as much as we can... even if difficult during these trying times. Gratitude is one of the most direct paths to our divine connection ...and state of LOVE. My wish is that all are safe, cared for and loved.

Budding vines leading to the heart carry the spark of creation & the new... ready to bloom. The heart holds the highest vibrational essence of the rose (LOVE) in full bloom (JOY). An open eye hovers above seeing from the state of love where we are open for more balance to what is and what our intentions hold, bringing a sense of power and freedom to how we show up in our life.... the wings spreading out from the heart carry us to our highest potential. Unplanned and interesting that this angel shape presented itself to me.  I hope you enjoy this mediation and is is useful to help realize your best intentions for the month ahead. 

I wish to give my heartfelt thanks to all who support my moon meditations, my art and my offerings.

Sending blessings your way on this Libra New Moon,

During any full moon the sun is exactly opposite the moon.
This Full moon is in Aries. The Sun is in Libra
October is a 11 universal month in astrology. 

Aries
1st sign of the zodiac (birthing into the new)
ruled by Mars (masculine)
fire sign
action oriented, spontaneous, enthusiastic, courageous, self/individual, life force

Libra
ruled by Venus (feminine)
air sign
gentle, harmonious, peaceful, relationships, us, balance.

The number 11 is like a two columns making a gateway or a portal to step through -  2 lines /bars facing each other. (Aries/Mars opposite Libra/ Venus)
11 adds up to the root number 2 which is a number of balance, peacefulness & relationship between 2 - also a feminine number.

Venus and Mars in trine  Pluto _ harmonious energy
Sun and Moon square Pluto – intense energy

Pluto embodies empowerment and transformation, driven by the unconscious, deep emotions.
Cycle of life, death and rebirth... transformation.

Mars and Venus are also conjunct at 19 degrees in Virgo - unified energy. 
Number 1 signifies beginnings and number 9 signifies endings.

So this is a harmonious time of endings and beginnings. Time to let go of obstacles and any fear that is holding you back, get in touch with self, connect with your hearts desires, unify and balance yourself. From here you can courageously step forward into new beginnings... through the portal -(unifying the 2 opposite columns) A blending of the 2... making way for the peace and harmony we desire in all our relationships.

My life figure is steadfast and balanced holding the Aries Moon with confidence and strength above his or her head bursting in enlightenment, heart is full, centered, illuminated...symbolizing the embodiment of complete self empowerment...  the sun opposite the moon all placed between the portal of 2 columns... the space of endings and beginnings, the space of unification and harmony, the space of transformation.

I hope you enjoy working with this moon meditation. I was on a road trip with little access to internet so please forgive my timing. The full moon was exact yesterday but there is always a potent 3 day window around the moon cycles to focus on your intentions.

Full Moon in Pisces (Water) with the Sun in Virgo (Earth)

Higher Consciousness, Dream State, High Intuitiveness, Spiritually Elevated, Magical and Mystical.
Perfect time to really get in touch with yourself and the spiritual realm to seek guidance. Quest for Higher Meaning & Divine Inspiration.

Sun opposite Neptune (Tues)..Full Moon in the sign of Pisces is conjunct Neptune Wednesday.
Neptune rules Pisces...this strong influence of Neptune increases sensitivity in and around everything. .

Pisces/Neptune brings you in touch with your psychic abilities, spirituality, higher consciousness, creative forces within, being of service.. your soul calling. Openings for deep connection to the sacred divine and to the collective. There is sense of compassion and super sensitivity creating beautiful opportunity to focus on how to best serve humanity in our own way

Mercury goes direct Tues as well. This means it is stationary, an opportunity to go deep within, review  and plan for final months of the year.

As this time of deep sensitivity & emotions it is so beneficial to pay attention to how you are feeling and stay in the moment. Dream state can make you feel disconnected from reality – do what you can to get grounded, while open to divine inspiration... take extra care of self and make time to meditate, get in nature, be creative, be inspired and inspire. With Mercury stationary it is important to be clear and grounded when communicating during this very sensitive time. Sun in Virgo helps with grounding.
 
...Which all leads to my moon meditation. The heart carries our deepest intelligence, our deepest connection to spirit. Whenever I start any creative endeavor, I trust in the outcome because I know I am truly in my heart space when I create. My intention always leads me... but really I have no idea where I will end up... like when I do my moon meditations. In the end there are always surprises and I see them as magical happenings.

A couple of days ago I was tapping into the aspects of this full moon and the image of the brain in the heart came to me... so I was led to draw the brain inside the heart. Any more than that was a complete mystery.

The heart knows before the brain knows. It sends the message to the brain but often the ego or conditioning overrides the heart's truth. The creative part of our brain is on the right and the logical part on the left. I made the orientation of this brain image from above with the front of the head facing the large eye to invite in clarity. There is beauty & strength in both sides of the brain and when we are in balance we use both in conjunction and harmony of each other.

In trust I started with what came to me.. which led me further... to bring in the balance (yin yang) symbol and to connect the sections of brain (I covered the 4 main lines of the brain with a line of rope all connecting to the center – the balance ...unifying the creative, the logical, the mind and the heart... what happened next was such fun and magical... a peace sign transpired before my eyes! This was not planned but such a clear message. The Heart, Mind and Spirit aligned... Our Soul's desires are clear... We are in a state of peacefulness. Divinely inspired we create our reality. 

Another unplanned synchronicity is that the yin yang symbol represents location of the pineal gland!
There is more infused into this meditation but I will invite you to seek and find your own messages.

Each of us is responsible for our own part in a world we wish to create. What inspires you? What brings you joy? What makes you feel really alive? What matters to you? Play with the image as little or as much as you wish... write intentions wishes, dreams, prayers, mantras around the heart and in the space of the brain. I suggest grounding &  breathing into your heart center first. Go outside and be with it...and add colour to invite the insights and alchemy of your creative heart! Then be open to receive the wonder of what shows up for you!

I kindly invite you to my facebook page Art Of Sha for support of my creations with likes, comments and shares. It is greatly appreciated and helps me share my soulwork with more people. 

In Joy, From My Creative Heart,
Sha*

This Leo new moon window is a time of endings and beginnings supercharged with a total solar eclipse.
There is also a fire grand trine happening and mercury retrograde and so much more...

With all the information available out there about this new moon eclipse I wanted to focus only on my own intentions in this image. It is infused with powerful symbolism, meanings and intention that is very personal and a gift from my heart to you during this intense, transformative time.

I am having a great deal of difficulty putting into words what I wish to say about it except that it carries the power of love, potential and possibility and my personal power of 3 symbol encased in the heart of creative fire.

Leo the Lion strongly faces the future...  representing the power of potential & unlimited possibility, knowing and trusting in the self and the universe.

The eye of the lion looks up aware of universal happenings and our connection to everything that is happening at this time... some of us conscious and some not. 

The lions mane emanates the flames of fire.... Leo being a fire sign

The symbol inside the heart carries the power of 3. The number 3 presents itself to me often. This symbol came to me while working on my own soul portrait this spring.
I use it here to represent the sun, moon and earth connected to a central point (the eclipse) encased in the triangle... the fire grand trine happening (harmony) encased in a circle... the circle of life.. (the universe)... encased in the heart..the container of LOVE holding everything together = Connection to our True Power from within where anything and all is possible.

The heart's fire sends a large center flame to the space above representing the future... the self and the collective consciousness transformed, activated & enlightened in the highest frequencies of love.

HEAL the past, LIVE & LOVE in the present, CREATE the future. 

I send love and blessings humbly with no other explanations, descriptions or insights at this time.
My heart is full...my brain is foggy...

Like, comments, & shares at Art Of Sha are sincerely appreciated.
They support of my creative heart and help me reach more people.

In Joy,
Sha*

Today we are experiencing the Full Moon in Aquarius and a Lunar Eclipse.

The full moon shines light on what is coming full circle in our lives including heightened realizations & manifestations whether they be the culmination of events of the previous month, year or lifetime(s)

During this time we are invited to let go and purge. Any full moon cycle accentuates our emotions and this one is supercharged by the occurring eclipse.

Aquarius, the water bearer is actually an air sign while the sun is in Leo a fire sign. Air fuels fire and with the intensity of this lunar eclipse things could get hot!

Aquarius is forward thinking...looking into the future, going against conformity of social and cultural expectations. Ruled by Uranus the planet of confidence, inspiration, breakthroughs and surprises....

My moon meditations don't always present themselves to me fully but usually I have some idea, feeling or message prior to setting pen to paper, yet nothing seemed to be easily coming through for this one. 

I let it go, still I was plainly aware that the image in my mind had remained blank by yesterday afternoon. Then clear as a bell it was presented to me. I heard it so loud  “Phoenix!” in the midst of carrying out some regular household chores. 
At the time I did not realize the significance of this... until I sat down and started to create. 

The phoenix represents air and fire simultaneously and of course rebirth. The big message that is coming through for me is that we are all rising from the ashes of the past – each and everyone of us whether we are conscious of it or not. There are big gateways open right now for growth, healing and many ah ha moments.

As the cosmic tide turns we do well to stay in Leo love and compassion for ourselves first. From here it is with more ease and grace that we stay in the state of unconditional love towards others while being open to learn from what is being presented to us. 

Be authentic and true to yourself with the courage to shine that inner fire of Leo yet be open to breakthroughs and the unexpected. Remember to breathe your love and creative heart into all that fire!
