The Schumann Resonance is the Earth's electromagnetic frequency, sometimes referred to as the Earth's heartbeat.
When we are in nature, humans are automatically in resonance with the electromagnetic frequency of the Earth (7.83 Hz), but the EMF's modern technology emits interfere with that natural coherence between ourselves and the Earth. We essentially become out of alignment with the Earth, and this can cause our systems to become distressed.
We experience suffering any time we are in resistance, stuck, or blocked. When we are in states such as these, it is because we are not flowing with the energies in the present moment. In other words, we are not in alignment with our surroundings and "what is.". If humans have evolved to be in resonance with the electromagnetic frequency of the planet, it makes sense that we would begin to experience symptoms such as insomnia, anxiety, depression, and illness when we become out of alignment with that frequency (typically due to geomagnetic disturbances brought about by things like wireless technologies).
For thousands of years, humans have achieved, or at least attempted to achieve, trance states by synchronizing with the energetic frequency of the Earth through techniques such as drumming and dancing, among others. The sound "OM" resonates at the frequency of 7.83 Hz.
An article in Eluxe Magazine discusses that disturbances to the Schumann Frequency affects more than just us - it affects our wildlife and plant life.
The Schumann Resonance puts us into the alpha brainwave state - the one where creativity is heightened. It is said listening to the Schumann Resonance has been linked with enhanced learning and memory, balance, stress-reduction, grounding, and that it can even help us recover from jet lag. Listening to tracks emitting the Schumann Resonance brings us back into alignment with the Earth's frequency using brain wave entrainment - like a tuning fork we begin to sync back into this healing and grounding frequency of 7.83 Hz.
The Schumann Resonance and Recent Astrology
In 2018, Uranus left Aries and moved into Taurus, where it will remain until 2026. (Uranus spends about seven years in each sign.) Uranus is the energy of technology and the future, but also lasting and unexpected change through sudden upheaval and insight. Taurus is Venus-ruled earth - creature comforts and enjoying life's little luxuries, but especially through the experiences of the five senses. Taurus is about enjoying good food and good friends, dancing, singing, and big belly laughs. It also is about security and stability, especially as that relates to worldly and material possessions. Taurus as an earth sign also refers to the Earth in a literal sense, including the environment as a whole as well as things that connect to our feelings of security such as food supply.
It makes sense then that aligning with the Schumann Resonance would be a great way to stay aligned with and connected to the Earth during Uranus' transit, as it will inevitably be launching us into the future via sudden change and upheaval. It seems logical that staying in resonance with the Earth would ground us through any radical changes or turbulence, giving us a kind of shelter in the eye of the storm.
At the same time, however, we have Pluto transiting fellow earth sign Capricorn (Saturn-ruled), and just recently Jupiter has caught up to this transformation god and Lord of the Underworld. While Pluto brings transformation through destruction and creation (the cycle of death and rebirth), Jupiter is known as a benefic in astrology - a planet that brings blessings. Jupiter is known as a planet of growth and expansion, as well as luck and wealth, but underneath it all, Jupiter is a planet of faith and belief. Jupiter gives us hope and optimism.
Jupiter moves much faster than Pluto, and with both being retrograde over the summer, will actually meet up with Pluto three times between April and November.
On January 12th, Saturn and Pluto came together at 23 degrees Capricorn for the first time in about 35 years. When Saturn and Pluto meet up its about authority and power, and the two planets coming together is not necessarily easy energy.
Saturn has since moved on, entering Aquarius around March 22nd, but moving back into Capricorn to finish up the last of its business there over the summer and fall before reentering Aquarius mid-December (from where it will be squaring Uranus in Taurus for most of 2021).
However, Jupiter and Pluto will be dancing over the point of the Saturn-Pluto conjunction over a series of three conjunctions, the first of which was April 5th. On April 5th, the two planets met at 24 degrees Capricorn, and at the same time there happened to be a global mass meditation. At this same time, a spike in the Schumann Resonance was recorded.
On April 5th, both planets were in direct motion. For their second meeting on June 30th, the planets will again be at 24 degrees Capricorn, but both will be in retrograde motion, so in review. Then on November 13th, they will meet a third and final time at 22 degrees Capricorn, to "resolve the issue", both having stationed direct.
The motion of the planets going back and forth over this point of the Saturn-Pluto conjunction at 23 degrees Capricorn is a bit like the energetic healing technique where one visualizes a wound before it happens and then as if it is already healed, jumping back and forth over the event. After the Saturn-Pluto conjunction of January 12th, 23 degrees Capricorn is a bit of a hot spot. Jupiter brings blessings and Pluto transformation. Jupiter and Pluto coming together over this area of the zodiac has the potential to work like a healing balm over that point that might feel a little sensitive right after Saturn and Pluto coming together there in January.
We know that a spike was recorded in the Schumann Resonance at the first meeting of Jupiter and Pluto on April 5th., and it will be interesting to see what transpires during their next two conjunctions on June 30th and November 13th.
In the mean time, aligning with and connecting to the Earth via any and every means possible seems to be immeasurably healing for us, and listening to the Schumann Resonance is a great way to do just that.
