The Astrology of Peace: A Mars, Chiron, Sun/Grand Water Trine Moment

Join My Daily Meditation

© 2016 by Joyce Mason

As I sat down to write this post, there was a tight Grand Water Trine in the sky: Mars in Scorpio, trine Chiron in Pisces, and finally trine Sun in Cancer. I can’t image anything that speaks more to our collective tears over global violence and the need to take heartfelt action for peace and healing.

I have been contemplating this invitation for several days—asking you to join me in a moment of meditation every noon, including a healing visualization to send love to our world in upheaval. Many lightworkers use the noon moment to pray for world peace, so we’ll only be adding to the burst of love already happening as the Big Light (Sun) appears overhead in each time zone.

By meditating together, we’ll be creating what I call a divine domino effect.

But before I share more about my daily mind meld for peace, a few words about the the power of now to borrow from The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment by Eckhart Tolle. Even the most optimistic of astrologers knew the current times would be prone to upheaval. I’d invite you to consider a metaphor.

You are in front of a window with the stream of current events is passing by like a long parade. All you can see in the moment is the part of the parade that’s within your field of vision. You cannot see the finale or the effects it has on all the people who are part of the parade, whether you’re a direct participant or just a spectator. I’d ask you not to judge what’s going on strictly by the snapshot in time you’re seeing from your window.

For those of you who haven’t already seen this superb video on YouTube, 2016 Election Predictions by psychic Danielle Egnew, here’s something to put the current political circus in perspective for you with liberal healing humor. Hint: It’s way bigger than the race for President.

Working with Chiron as my Astro-specialty for nearly 30 years and events in my own life have taught me: Wounds cannot be healed without coming to the surface for cleansing and cauterization—or they just fester and create more infection. The good news behind the violence and hateful political rhetoric we’re seeing all over the world? Those who are angry and hurting, who feel disenfranchised or cheated, are making their feelings known, even if their methods are often horrible to watch and hell to cope with. The healing needs now have our attention. The heavy racial content is not surprising, for the dark/light metaphor follows us throughout our lives on earth as the archetypal symbol of the duality on the earth plane—at least until we learn to see the higher view. (See Chiron in Pisces: Integration and Integrity.)

Chiron in Pisces is asking us once more to know that we are each other—to be the healing and to mentor each others' spark of light to set off a bonfire of enlightenment. How can we do this nowadays without drowning in sorrow, sympathy or the temptation to believe the world is going to hell in a hand basket? Knowing that all thoughts lead to action and that joined minds in prayer and healing are more powerful than we dare to imagine, I suggest the following:

We can merge in peace and healing by dedicating just a few minutes each day to this cause. Here’s my proposal:

Healing Noon Heart and Mind-Meld Meditation

1.   Set your phone or other alarm to go off at noon every day for your moment of peace. Doesn’t matter if you’re busy doing something. As you get to know the ritual, you can do it in a minute or less and still effectively help whip up the light.

2.   Take 3 deep breaths to quiet your mind chatter and let go into The One. Then envision your heart connected by a single thread of light to the goodness in the hearts and higher selves of all people on Earth. The more of these chords of connection you can see, the more powerful the meditation. Remember, this will not tap into the darkness of those who are “acting out,” because you are connecting with their Original Good, not their darkness.

3.   Choose a mantra that works to summarize your wish to the world. It can be as simple as: Peace, love, healing—fairness and joy to all.

4.   As you wrap up your healing moment, envision Sky and Earth and everyone on the planet buffered by the explosion of light you have helped create, as if a million twinkling holiday lights have created an aura of connected hearts, continuing to support each other long past these moments of meditation.

If you choose to participate, I’d love for you to share your experiences in the Comments. These acts of peace will change us all.
