Message In A Bottle – Trusting The Universe Works In Your Favor
Once upon a time, before the internet, before television, before cars and the postal service, people used completely different ways of communicating with each other.
Imagine someone, back in the day, really wanted to send a message, to reach out to the world. What would they do? They would put a message in a bottle and surrender it to the great ocean.
Bottles in the ocean are a symbol for miracles. When nothing else works, when you’ve tried all other avenues, the ocean is the last option. The bottle can take your message very far, but not necessarily where you expect it to.
The currents can drift the bottle in any direction. You have no control. You don’t know the destination. You have to trust that the ocean will drift the bottle to the ‘right’ shore. When there’s no hope left, you have to trust that the universe works in your favor.
People surrender to the unknown as the last resort, when they have lost all hope. In reality, we don’t have to wait that long. You can surrender to the ocean anytime. Your message will reach the right destination, but you have to be willing not to know the destination.
A message in a bottle is you asking God – or the Universe – for directions. All you have to do is ask. Without expectations, without trying to ‘guess’ the answer.
New Moon In Sagittarius – Jupiter, Neptune, Intuition And Psychic Messages
On December 7th, 2018 we have a New Moon at 15° Sagittarius. The New Moon is square Mars and Neptune, which form a conjunction in Pisces.
A square is a dynamic aspect. It pushes us to take action. But what kind of action?
We have two energies at play – Sagittarius and Pisces. Sagittarius is the sign of expanding one’s horizons. Sagittarius is also connected with intuition and higher knowledge.
When you intuitively know who to trust and who not, whether or not you should take the job, that’s because Sagittarius (and the ruling planet, Jupiter) has connected the dots for you.
Jupiter’s knowledge is based on experience. What we call intuition is our capacity to connect large amounts of information and find meaning and trends.
Pisces has many things in common with Sagittarius. Both Pisces and Sagittarius are mutable signs, and both Pisces and Sagittarius are ruled by Jupiter (Jupiter is the main ruler of Sagittarius and the traditional ruler of Pisces). Both Pisces and Sagittarius are connected with faith, hope, and spirituality.
Pisces is also ruled by Neptune, the planet of the ocean, the soul, the unconscious and psychic connections. Neptune is the medium that connects us with other realms of existence.
If Sagittarius and Jupiter are connected with higher knowledge and intuition, Pisces and Neptune are connected with the unconscious and with psychic connections.
Many times we confuse the two. We believe we received a psychic message when in fact it was our intuition playing out, or the other way around, we receive messages from other realms and believe it’s our intuition.
When we ‘feel’ our partner is sad, that’s intuition, when we suddenly get a message that our partner is sad, even when they are far away, that’s a psychic message.
The New Moon in Sagittarius is exactly about these two archetypes: knowledge based on intuition and experience (Sagittarius) and knowledge based on communicating with higher realms (Pisces).
Your intuition (New Moon in Sagittarius) will be challenged – by Mars and Neptune in Pisces – to open up to other types of messages. Pay attention to unusual signs, to omens, to dreams. They will give you very important clues about what to do.
If you feel ‘you’re right’ about something or someone, but you get a different message from an unusual source, don’t dismiss this message. That’s Mars and Neptune in Pisces pushing you to take a different route.
Mercury just turned direct. When Mercury changes course, something you overlooked will suddenly emerge and change everything. Because Mercury direct coincides with the New Moon in Sagittarius and with the Mars-Neptune conjunction in Pisces, incredible breakthroughs are possible now.
If you feel you’ve reached a plateau in knowledge and experience, open to the higher portals of your being. Delve within the Spiritual world. Send a message in a bottle. Let the ocean take your message to unknown destinations.
