One polarity in particularly that it might be helpful for us to turn our attention to this month is that basic polarity of life, the gender polarity of male/female. Balance is so badly needed in this polarity since the outmoded, deeply embedded conflict between gender archetypes is only serving to add fuel to the fires of conflict already burning around the world.
Each month of the year brings with it its own unique mix of energetic opportunity and new potentiality. October 2014 is certainly no exception in this respect. As an energetic backdrop we have the prevailing planetary influence for the month from the constellation of Libra. Astrologically Libra is represented by the sign of the scales and its airy energy brings a focus to the balancing of opposites and an emphasis to the qualities of harmony, balance, justice and fairness in all areas of life.
Clearly then the issue of ‘relationship’ will be particularly in the spotlight over the next few weeks. This takes us into a huge arena of possibilities since we live ‘in relationship’ in just about every area of our lives in some form or another. There is the internal relationship that we have with ourselves on all levels, the external relationship that we have with our partners, family & friends, and on a wider scale still the collective relationship that we have as a human family. So in the expansive flow of Libran energy this month we may well find ourselves impulsed to create greater harmony and balance in one or other of these important areas of life.
As an energetic compliment to this Libran focus we have both a full moon lunar eclipse on October 8th and a new moon solar eclipse on October 23rd all set within a period of retrograde mercury (4th -25th October). The energetic climate created by these and other important planetary configurations this month will also provide a fertile opportunity for us to review our personal belief system and how it has contributed to the themes of our life, with a view to re-evaluating and readjusting where necessary. So take the opportunity this month to release any old constructs that you identify as being redundant and irrelevant to your true purpose and to reset your priorities accordingly.
Balancing the Polarity of Gender
Looking around the world stage right now the need for us to re-evaluate our relationship as a human collective seems ever more glaringly obvious and real solutions seem tantalisingly out of sight. It is perhaps helpful to remember that how we respond individually or collectively to any particular energetic flow will relate to the consciousness that we are predominantly operating from.
The chaos that we are currently witnessing in the world is the result of the increasing flow of high frequency energies that we are now receiving, meeting with the resistance of a still predominately third dimensional consciousness. Those of us that are awake and aware can best help this process of transformation by choosing not to focus on those uncomfortable extremes of polarity that are so visible right now and instead choose to hold our attention on creating a balance in those polarities within ourselves. In this way we are each contributing to the creation of a new template from which new solutions based on greater balance harmony, equality and fairness will in time become available. In the flow of Libran energy this month we will have both support and an enhanced opportunity to do this.
One polarity in particularly that it might be helpful for us to turn our attention to this month is that basic polarity of life, the gender polarity of male/female. Balance is so badly needed in this polarity since the outmoded, deeply embedded conflict between gender archetypes is only serving to add fuel to the fires of conflict already burning around the world. So this month take a little time to observe where your own consciousness might be limited in this respect and then be willing to make the necessary adjustments.
Start by using the flow of Libran energy to help you explore the opposite gender polarity to your own body type. What would it feel like to be in a body of this particular gender? Recognise any related, preconceived belief patterns that you might have that need revising. Repeat for the gender polarity that you are more familiar with as your own body type. Then observe how these two polarities integrate and inter relate with each other within yourself – or not!
From our experience great insight into any unconscious beliefs that we might hold can be gained by observing the family dynamic that you choose as your birth family. So in this case take a moment to observe, without judgement, what you might have gathered from your mother and father about feminine/masculine balance. Many of us have unconscious agreements, habits and belief structures that we have been carrying along with us over many incarnations that continue to reinforce stereotypical gender archetypes. Now would be an excellent time for us all to re-evaluate these so that greater equality, fairness and balance can become the norm in our world.
