The New Episteme

This eclipse and the subsequent days to follow will surely impact many of us in most interesting ways. I suggest you journal your experiences. Coincidences, synchronicities, exciting phenomena have a way of disappearing from our memories when not recorded. With the eclipse right behind us and the very powerful Lion’s Gate Portal ( August 8th, 2018) ahead of us, it’s quite possible you are feeling a bit disoriented. No cause for alarm. Consciousness is shifting. You may be feeling and sensing it without understanding. A friend shared this experience with me a few hours after the eclipse:

“On my drive to work today, 4.7 miles from my home, I looked out at the trees and felt as if I was looking at them from above and I saw them differently, as though it was another dimension, like a city in a snow globe being shaken”  

This was a glimpse from another dimension. You may also notice yourself having similar experiences. Hence, record it. You’ll want to reference back to these experiences as you document your experiences of entering into a new and historic Episteme.

You may be hearing and reading a lot about the shift in consciousness, the paradigm shift, and the New Earth and if you haven’t, you’ll be hearing more from me as the weeks and months go by only I am not going to refer to this new consciousness as the “New Earth Movement”; as we are only historically entering into this period now. Perhaps the“New Earth” will stick. Historians will record this new time and eventually name it. 

If anyone is familiar with the work of the famous philosopher, linguist and historian, Michel Foucault, you’ll recall that he worked with the concept of Epistemes.

Foucault taught that the history of science is not a single, linear trajectory towards more knowledge but rather perspectives, conversations, discoveries, and insights that disrupt the current cultural perspective. There are historically only three major Epistemes in over the last 800 years in western european culture.

In order to understand an Episteme, look at it like this: there is the conscious behavior of a culture and the unconscious behavior. The conscious rules of society are rules we know and understand consciously and make decisions according to. We consciously know that our society dictates we publicly wear clothes every day. The unconscious levels that determine how we think, write, and behave are so deeply embedded into our society and belief system we wouldn't even think of walking out the door to go to a public event naked! 

An example of an episteme is the Middle Ages: In the Early Middle Ages what was considered scientific knowledge would be ridiculed by today’s scientists. That the Earth was flat or that the planets revolved around Earth would be dismissed immediately by modern scientists.  However, at the time of those teachings with their knowledge, it was considered scientific fact .

The Episteme is the unconscious rule that governs serious scientific conversations in a certain society in a certain time. And this determines what does and does not get taken seriously by the scientific community. We are now entering into a new Episteme in the history of humanity. Remember, it is unconscious. Most of the time people are not even aware of this because it is a set of unconscious rules that govern our behavior.

You may wonder how the Episteme differs from the Paradigm:

1. A  paradigm is conscious. Scientists and researchers are conscious of this knowledge and behavior. An Episteme is unconscious because the rules are so deeply ingrained in our thinking.

2. A paradigm happens in a specific field of study, ie. history, linguists, art, etc. where as the episteme encompasses all facets of culture, history, and science.

3. Paradigms do not live long. There could be several paradigm shifts in a century.  According to Foucault, epistemes happen very rarely. There have only been three epistemes in science in western culture in the past 800 years,

Therefore when an episteme changes its impact on science and society is huge.  It happens in every discipline at once. Last Summer at the Salon in Krakow, I spoke aboutEpistemes and my views that we are now creating a new Episteme.

This change will impact us tremendously. We don’t even have an accurate vocabulary to discuss many of these changes yet. It will be up to us to create the vocabulary.  Those of us on the forefront might refer to ourselves as Lightworkers, bringing the new heightened awareness and unconscious changes to the world.

A few years ago, my friend telling me he saw the trees and felt as if he was looking at them from above and saw them differently, as though it was another dimension, would be called crazy or just dismissed. Only now, as we understand and have experienced other dimensionality, telepathy, remote viewing, telekinesis, spontaneous healings, remote/distance healings, we begin to find this phenomena in scientific magazines and journals. We are witnessing the new Episteme. It’s an exciting time to live in, aware and mindful, as our consciousness and personal awareness will shape the developingEpisteme we are entering.

I am very excited for what is next as we enter into new realms of dimensionality, tip the scales of consciousness, and create history!  This is an incredible time to be alive!

What Happens When Mercury and Venus Conjunct?

Correggio_Venus_with_Mercury_and_Cupid_or_The_School_of_Love.jpg

The Italian Renaissance painter, known as Correggio, captures a tender moment betweenVenus with Mercury and Cupid ( National Gallery of London) in his painting. Here, Mercury teaches Cupid to write while Venus fixes her gaze at us. Renaissance artists taught allegories, myths, and lessons in Astrology through their painting.
Currently, in our night sky, Mercury and Venus conjunct on March 5th. The Mercury- Venus conjunction evokes sensitivity and desire to communicate feelings, concerns, and matters important to us. During this Mercury-Venus conjunction expect some synchronicity and magic to unfold. Pay attention to the details and make appropriate connections. Nothing happens randomly. Energy constantly moves despite our abilities to see the bigger picture.

During this conjunction, Mercury teaches us effective communication. In the painting, Mercury teaches Cupid to write, as Venus confidently looks our way, reminding us to focus attention and awareness of our thoughts and spoken words. Words can never be retracted. They carry frequency and energy.  

During the Mercury- Venus conjunction, we learn to rebuild trust. The allegory of Cupid symbolizes love, trust and surrender. Magic and synchronicities happen when we experience looking at the world from child-like trust.

The next few days mark a time of questioning where in your life you have lost your child-like trust.  Children are little cupids; joyous, loving, and trusting beings. Can we regain that childlike trust again for people, ourSelves, and our future endeavours at this time in our lives? I think so. The conjunction invites us to examine where in our lives we have stopped trusting and begun acting from preconceived suppositions and stereotypes. Stepping back, becoming the unemotional observer allows us to witness the synchronicities and magic of the moments.

Take this energy of the Venus, Mercury conjunction and start new and fresh. Give your endeavours, relationships, friendships, projects, etc. new eyes. Give it a blank slate beginning. Create again from nothing. Create childlike wonder.

Simple is Better

With the eclipses behind us now, we embrace the end of the Mercury Retrograde on Sept. 22nd. Whew… what a few weeks! The Sun enters Libra on the 22nd as well, and Venus enters Scorpio on the 23rd. What might this mean for you?

The Sun loves being in Libra. Imagine basking in sunlight, without the worries of UV rays, and relishing the feel of the sun on your face as you soak up the sun’s powerful energy.

This is what it feels like to have the Sun in Libra. Beauty abounds. Simple is better. Check out some articles on the art of decluttering. Get rid of the stuff! Let your motto be simple is better.

Stop over complicating your life with too many thoughts, too many gadgets, too many things. Allow yourself the mind space to be present enough to see and feel the beauty all around you as the leaves change, the temperatures change, the smells in the air change.

When Venus enters Scorpio on the 23nd, you may find yourself more passionate than usual. The superficial won’t work. You will need to have the body/soul connection and you’ll yearn for meaning and depth in relationships, friendships, and associations. Work to keep the demands of the relationships simple at this time. Your intensity may be a bit too strong, depending on where you have Scorpio in your own chart.

Keep it simple. Keep it real. Be honest with yourself and others. It will be a week when honesty, integrity and simplicity all matter.

As always I am here for quick check ins, readings, consulting, and astrological readings. My Jupiter Transit special ends at the end of this month, so take advantage of this special price. It includes your Jupiter transits and a reading.

Have a blessed, happy, and fulfilled week!
With love,

Elly
