Several people have contacted me, telling me their intuition feels like it is growing stronger, even if sometimes they don't know what it means. This happens for one or both of two reasons. First, there are times when our personal intuition grows stronger, whether by our practice or just our evolving state. Second, there are times when the field gets stronger, or the filters between the rational and intuitive levels of existence weaken. Right now we seem to be going through the second state.
I believe intuition is growing stronger due to where Uranus and Neptune are, since these transpersonal planets do work their magic in our charts whether we're aware of it or not. With Uranus in Pisces and Neptune in Aquarius, they are in mutual reception, exponentially strengthening each within the sign expression of each.
Aquarius is often thought to be intuitive in a "higher mental" sense, since it synthesizes many bits into an integrated whole with blinding speed. Pisces IS intuition itself, the vast fluid field within which differences dissolve and all beings within that field can sense other things in that field both near and far, depending on their sensitivity.
These are long term influences affecting everyone on Earth. The field is definitely stronger at present, due to Mercury's trine to Uranus along with the recent Sun trine and Mars' quintile to Neptune. Even the Saturn opposition Neptune is putting pressure on the forms within the field and intensifying the potential awarenesses.
The other factor in the second reason for stronger intuition concerns the on-going massive irrationality from dual sectors, the Grand Irrationality AND the Saturn triseptile Uranus. With things going irrational, obsessive-compulsive, or just plain weird 14 times every week between mid-June and mid-July 2007, and is it any wonder that our logical minds are losing their firm references? When we lose firm references we open to subtle signals, this being a potential conduit for intuition to be cultivated whether we know we are or not.
Obviously this will be thrilling or unsettling depending on one's adaptability. Regardless of the subjective feelings around an increased sensitivity, try to cultivate accuracy in perception and interpretation, since that is the benchmark as to whether we're using true intuition (unerring heart-knowledge) or astral receptivity, which is subject to erroneous assumptions and interpretations.
A result of cultivating intuition is that our lives begin to parallel the larger process of unfoldment, and we close the time gap in seeing how our affairs and understanding are moving in synchronicity with the larger tides and tendencies. This offers us a mirror as well as comfort that we are in harmony with all that is.
So in this time of momentary intensification of the field and the loosening of the clear boundaries between the rational and non-rational, relax into the process, open to a new way of experiencing life unfolding in the NOW, and trust that when this period is past, your intuition will be stronger, helping guide you in the months and years to come.
