At 9:46 am PST today, Jupiter (in Taurus) trined Pluto (in Capricorn). I started this mandala reading precisely at 9:46 and, interestingly enough, finished it at 10:28 am.
According to Lynn Hayes of Astrodynamics,…
“This is the second phase of a cycle that began in July and is a beautiful alignment for the expansion of our personal empowerment and confidence. Under this influence we can accomplish many things, so it’s important to be clear about what we want our lives to look like.”
In some circles, today, October 28, 2011, is the official end of the last cycle of the Mayan calendar cycles. A video on the web site “Awakening as One” explains how they figured out that it’s today rather than, December 12, 2012. They also include references to the Hopi prophecies.
So with all this going on I felt inspired to do a mandala reading for both of them.
The green area is the Pluto energy; the blue area is the Jupiter energy. Both seem to intertwine with each other. Within the Plluto area are different patterns to which I kept hearing the word “repatterning” in my mind. The upwardly mobile cluster cells in the Jupiter area, create this feeling of ascension, of raising vibrations. In Astrology, Jupiter is the planet of expansion and Pluto is the planet of transformation. The trine (represented by the pyramid) sets up an easy, beneficent environment for the two planets to do their thing.
With Jupiter on top, it reminds us to grow and expand. In this context it refers to our spiritual growth and evolution. With Pluto on top, it reminds us to dig deep, to transform ourselves from the inside out. It’s interesting to me that these two areas remind me of the left brain (Pluto) /right brain (Jupiter) dynamic…transforming our patterns and opening ourselves up to the possibilities beyond our limited 3D world.
With either view, the whole feel of the mandala is celebratory…the equivalent of our New Year’s Eve celebrations. With the end of one year/age comes the hopes and aspirations of a new year/age, moving ever forward in our evolution.
As an aside, it’s interesting to me how the pyramid reminds me of the pyramid found on the back of the U.S. dollar bill…but without the eye.
In summary, this mandala celebrates the beginning of a new age, a new era where we explore within ourselves and beyond ourselves, raising our vibration in love, compassion and joy. The more we do this, the more we can help others do the same. Lead by example.
Happy New Age, Everyone!
