friday 13th

 

What an interesting day is next Friday 13th – along with all the usual brouhaha of the mysterious bad luck of such a day [the only one for this year] it is also a Full Moon in Sagittarius – highlighting these serendipitous nuances – and this wont be seen again until 2049.

Thirteen has long been associated with the mysteries – 13 moons in a year which was the old calendar of the world lol, 13 witches in a coven, the last supper of death and betrayal with 13 members, 13 is all over the american flag and symbology, 13 Buddha’s, 13 snake gods of the Mexicans, and many hotels and motels refuse to have a 13th floor or rooms with that number and on and on it goes. Friday for similar reasons to do with the feminine and superstition and fear of Freya – the Norse Goddess whose day it is. This is not the place for a discussion on such foolishness of demonising the feminine – just be mindful that for those who are aware, the number 13 holds other powers of Dominion and Strength.

Friday13

The month began with Mercury retrograde in Cancer from June 7th until July 1st with all the usual communication glitches that can flow here although the introspection here in this watery sign is very much about the examination of old emotional issues surfacing now – people from the past and issues may surface now for re-examination as we figure out what works and what no longer does at this time of tumultuous and ongoing change. Because of the square to Neptune there is also real possibility of getting caught in the illusion and delusion of rumours and mischief making – pay attention to your intuition here rather than what you are told or shown. We are invited by the interplay back and forth in Gemini to rise above the meanderings of the mind – for it to be the servant of our being rather than dictating energy movements.

On the actual Friday the 13th Mercury also interacts with a most unpredictable and potentially explosive continuance of the Cardinal Grand Cross with Jupiter in Cancer, Mars in Libra, Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn and this baby is not done with us yet lol. The energies with be very volatile and it will behove us to stay zen and not react to the madness we will in all probability be obliged to deal with. All of your angst and demons are a self generated state of mind and control your mind and you will control your reality.

sag-moon june 14

The weather around the place is likely to be quite mad this day also and seismic activity is also highlighted around the globe. Again stay zen, observe, be kind and compassionate to all you encounter – everyone is struggling now. And what ever the drama is about that you are invited to? It is not worth it – quite simple really.

This will be made easier on the day by Venus being in her ruling of sign of Taurus at the Full Moon also and this will invite us [along with the Grand Trine of Neptune in Pisces, Jupiter [with Mercury] in Cancer and Saturn in Scorpio] to allow the healing qualities of the waters to nourish and sustain us – so on the day spend some time at the water, or bathing in luxurious salts and pay close attention – very close attention to your dreams on the 3 days either side of this Moon. This is a moon of portents so if you are paying attention a sign post of importance will be shown to you. With Chiron thrown into the mix here the healing potentials are very real.

On the 9th [just before the Full Moon] Neptune in Pisces moves into retrograde and this can cause confusion to come into the mix for this magical moon. The illusions and delusions can rise very quickly now and don’t be surprised to see lots of folks escaping into alternate realities with what ever means possible – all things in moderation peeps and while some pathways can open you up to what is possible – it is also very easy at this time to get led down a rabbit hole you may struggle to arise from.

shamans drum

The key is to be open to what your Soul wants for you now – remember the Soul in its journey seeks intensity – it truly does not matter whether this is good bad or indifferent from its perspective – the more intense the better for that facilitates movement and growth. Let love guide you not fear and you will be taken where you need to be for insight and renewal.

As the Full Moon in Sagittarius rises at 22 degrees on the 13th trust that emotions may run high and the wave of energy of righteousness can get right out of hand here. People will be passionate about their causes and what injustice they may be perceiving going on at this time and it will be important not to get caught in arguments about what is truth. Seven billion people on the planet and seven billion truths – who are we to say that ours is the ‘right’ truth lol.

The cosmic alignments here with star systems will also awaken the dark depths of our psyche and this will come hard and out of left field with this Moon. Forbidden fruit may beckon, that which we know is not ours or not good for us can rise like a dark addiction – be it physical, mental, emotional or spiritual and wants to be sorted once and for all. There is trickery here and we may be in an old pattern before we are aware – looking for someone to blame and punish.

soul journey

Remember your shadow is as much a part of you as any other pretty light aspects that may have more appeal to your ego and requires expression and integration if you are to become whole and complete. It is only in the shadow because it was unacceptable to your primary carers and is as much unrealised potential as the mad Id and its desires for chaos. So dance the dance well with these aspects as they rise – give them expression but moderate it well and see what is ready to come home to you to influence your life as your grow and evolve into a more authentic version of yourself. Jupiter’s alignment with the Moon here will give you a sense of humour and optimism and the Moon itself in Sagittarius opens you up to a more open and philosophical interpretation of what is on offer during this time.

The thing is there will be so many possibilities and potentials shown to you with this moon it will be important to let the net sweep wide and allow your thinking heart and feeling mind to make the decisions that best serve you and your community – with love and compassion and the master of calm being the guide here.

The Mars square Pluto at this moon [14th] is also likely to be reflected in political upheaval and social unrest as the population around the world see further and further into the corrupt and death making policies of those who have ruled this planet for far too long. It is not over yet peeps and yet with this aspect there is likely to be a sense of the absurd as we look around and see what is unfolding on the world stage.

WARRIOR ARRIVES

There is a strong predatory energy to this with deep sexual disturbances rising from the depths so the likelihood of seeing corruption and scandal exposed is high and in our own lives we are likely to see violence and bullying occurring in the lives of those around us if not directly. Vastly clever and determined this energy may bring some very disturbing trends and manipulations to the surface so be aware of this in yourself and those around you. This can really fire up political activism too as the sense of outrage and injustice rises seeking vengeance at this time.

And so the Moon will summon the people to be real and the aspects of an exalted Jupiter will give them the faith that the time is right – here – now – to take risks, to feel strong and powerful in their desire for a better world and this will be fed by all kind of unresolved dark matter needing exposure and resolution – all in a mix of illusion and delusion and dark sexual power and predation all hidden under a smiling exterior – you can see why it is going to be a kind of crazy week lol. The oppositions here are potent however this is also the possibility of the Warrior Spirit rising with strength and love that can provide insight, understanding and a clear recognition that this is no longer how we wish to live.

After the moon from the 14th to the 25th Mars in Libra continues to make some very tense aspects to the Uranus – Pluto square and its machinations and the intensity will continue to rise during this time and there will be an internal demand to address that which has been illuminated by the Moon. Again the choice is yours how you deal with this – you can use this intensity to revitalise your path and the movement forward or to rail against the machine and go to war in your personal world. It will play out in interesting ways in the global sphere as well now.

Look to areas in your life where issues of power, sexuality, trust and cooperation are highlighted to see where you are likely to be challenged here lol. These are the energies to provide long term solutions to entrenched patterns if you work with it.

solstice tree winter

During this time also we will experience the Winter Solstice here in the Southern Hemisphere and we will be taking a group of women up into the hills to weave these fated energies to work for us for the year ahead as we work also to use these magical times to release all that no longer serves – if you wish to come to this follow the link to register and it is truly a magical night of weaving the fates to our desires for growth lol

http://wp.me/p2FxkF-7v   We had such fun with this last year and I am still amazed at how much my life has changed since that time!!

The Sun also enters the home and hearth of Cancer at this time – highlighting our personal lives, family, emotional maturity, love and compassion for our larger family of humanity and all other life we share the planet with. A couple of days later Venus enters Gemini and this will allow for the community of humans to interact and share ideas that have emerged from the cauldron of energies been shaken and stirred and the new moon that arrives in Cancer on the 27th allows us to plant the seeds of all this into what our new family looks like – the family of man – how to nourish and sustain us all as well as all other life forms among us. The tight Neptune trine at this moon encourages us to be open to the divine and allow extraordinary creativity available here to flow with ease.

We will be holding a Full Moon Meditation on the evening of the Friday the 13th to maximise these energies and if you wish to attend let me know as places as you know are limited. Contact me at prue.blackmore@thrivebydesign.com.au if you wish to book a place.

A Ritual for the Moon

If you are not joining us for the meditation or for the Solstice Night – here is a beautiful simple thing to do at this moon.

During the day gather some things from nature that represent what it is that your have endured this year and what it is that you are ready to release. Has a relationship ended, an illness been experienced, a job finished, a pattern of behaviour that causes disruption in your life recognised, a broken heart that wants to heal or an addiction that regularly disrupts your life been exposed? Gather things from nature and bind them into a fetish or representation of what it is and bring it before your sacred place as the moon rises.

Also during the day make a list of what you want to bring into the year ahead and write it down on a piece of paper. Take a white candle and mark it with oil from the centre to the top and the centre to the bottom and then carve your name into the candle, then wrap the list of what you desire around the candle. Place this in the centre of your space.

Open the four directions with some smudge or incense and welcome the energies of water, earth, fire and air into the cosmic wheel of life with the four directions – giving thanks for what they have taught you this year. Light a candle for each of the four directions as you do this. Thank them for the gifts of abundance, new beginnings, creativity, healing, acceptance, shadow, and the ebb and flow of your life as you have moved through the many little deaths of the year.

Speak aloud and acknowledge what you are releasing – with gratitude for all it has taught you – and then light a fire [in a metal bowl if you are inside] and offer the effigy into the fire – offering it up to spirit as you do.

Then take a sip of wine and some seeded cake and eat of these with gratitude for the promise of renewal they offer for the year ahead as the sun returns to its zenith in the months of spring and summer ahead. Then light the white candle that has your wishes for the year ahead around it and let it burn down through the night.

Give thanks to the four directions – complete the ceremony and then take some seeds out into the garden and spread them around – both as feed for the little creatures who struggle in winter and as a promise of faith in spring renewed.

Have a safe week in these wild times and be kind to each other xx

 

Shamanic Bodywork and Sound Healing – August 23rd – 24th 2014

shamanic healing 2

 

The workshop for Shamanic Bodywork and Sound Healing is being offered in August 23rd – 24th – 2014

This exciting workshop will teach you how to enter your client’s spiritual landscape and meet them as their Totemic being – their medicine – their connection with Spirit nature and how to navigate that landscape in the service of the client – and this will also incorporated powerful sound techniques for healing – setting up a vibrational field in which  nothing that is disharmonious to the client may remain within.

When any part of the Human system is out of balance – it is important to look at the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of what is going on along with the map of the world of which they are a part.

shamans mask

Then by entering the client’s landscape – their stream of consciousness – the practitioner learns how to enter the stream of alternate possibilities, moving by being still – a foot in both worlds. A transformative process occurs within this from binding to freedom – from passivity and non movement to energy and movement.

When balance is restored in this landscape – so then does this healing flow out into the life of the client in the here and now.

I will be co-facilitating this workshop with Tim Healy from The Western Most Omastry – who has been working with sound healing for over 20 years and is an amazing teacher and practitioner!

shamans journey

I am sooo looking forward to this one and follow the link at
https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/shamanic-bodywork-and-sound-healing-tickets-11127908875
to book your place and register!!

We have shifted this around a bit everyone and sorry to mess you about – it will be worth the wait though!!

You will learn about visionary practice – state change – how all elements of the self are available in multiple streams of consciousness – how to enter those streams in the service of your client – enact change – gain the gifts therein and return with them to this ordinary waking world we inhabit.

You will learn about the power of sound as a healing tool – vibrationary medicine and how to apply it – both with sound instruments and your own voice

This is going to be fun peeps – book now at the link above and sooooo looking forward to sharing it with you lol xxx

 

 

vajra eclipse

Well as I am sure you can all attest this month with its Cardinal Grand Cross, Uranus- Pluto Square, Solar Magnetic Storms and Eclipses is keeping us all on the edge of our seat. There is so much going on as we dwell right in the midst of it and all around I am seeing murder and mayhem, earthquakes, volcanoes, storms etc. and while this will intensify over the next few days the results will actually flow out for the next 18 months.

 

Eclipses have been used by forecasters of many ilk’s over countless aeons to predict tumultuous events both personally and globally – what affects us [depending on our own chart] and where the eclipse falls – affecting the grand sweep of humanity and the globe. Lunar eclipses are much more about letting go and shedding on a personal level while solar eclipses are the initiators of action and while affecting us absolutely personally – are also often counted in terms of what will happen to the leaders and countries over which they pass.

 human wolf

Where the eclipse falls in the zodiac – which elemental alchemical energy will be engaged – will show up in the consequences of the eclipse itself. If it falls in a water sign [Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces] – what raging tempests may unfold? If it is in a fire sign [Aries, Leo and Sag] then what monstrosities will mankind inflict upon his fellow man as he falls into the role of the Humanous Lupus – the human wolf preying on its own. Should the eclipse enter an air sign [Libra, Aquarius or Gemini] then what social unrest and upheaval across the globe may unfold and what windstorms may blight the world. This one falls at 8 degrees in Taurus [along with Virgo and Capricorn making the Earth signs] and so we may see the earth afflicted with drought and famine, earthquakes and volcanoes.

This is then also influenced by the Ruler of that sign – in this case the planet Venus – turning wisdom into knowledge – seeking resolution of the duality – light and dark – of which we have both, when we are not pretending lol.

With the solar eclipse the Moon is casting the shadow upon the face of the sun and in this case is a partial eclipse due to distance etc. However it does fall over Australia so our dear leader [not quite kim ong ill lol] and nation may see some interesting times ahead indeed.

 thinking heart feeling mind_n

The Solar Eclipse is the initiator of new beginnings and the effects are felt for up to 6 months or more beyond and as the moon impacts blocking the sun then the sun and moon energies merge mixing intuition with logic, warmth with coldness, ebb with flow, dark with light. This is powerful however which way you go is up to you. Aim for the thinking heart and feeling mind and you will be led well to your new phase.

 

The Grand Cardinal Cross remains intact for now and wanes about mid May – around the time that Mars goes direct. So all that was in the last blog or two [www.insightsfromtheedge.net] is still playing out here and the admonition to stay detached remains strong. Do not react or over react, to people, situations, nutbags, etc. You are being invited to change your life and so it will not behove you to behave in the same old ways lol. What ever you are encountering now it is just to show you what needs transforming. The Piscean age of masculine war and horror is dying and the group awareness and selfless care is rising as the Aquarian age begins. It is not all going to happen overnight peeps but you can all see the signs and the crisis point is only about a year away now. You can see the changes in the masses and on the internet – the only place it is not being seen or reported is in those who control the world and their lackeys in government and mainstream propaganda and this will be the last place it changes lol.

 dissolving duality

The collective is rising – unity with diversity and equality and freedom within it. As the duality is resolving we are also recognising that spirit and matter are one and the same. We see the lie we have been fed that says spirituality is with some imaginary friend in the sky that only some man with a special license can get you to – we are spiritual to our boot straps – here having a human experience and they are one and the same lol.

The freedom that comes with this awareness is the freedom to be completely responsible for ourselves and what we create and co-create and for each others wellbeing-ness, with love and compassion for all. We come to recognise in this that we don’t need anything to do it for us – we don’t need government – banks or religion – peddling their lies to maintain their power. I heard the other day that the world is 40 Trillion dollars in debt. What madness – in debt to who exactly – Jupiter? Nutbags all and the storm is coming for them. There is no saviour folks – we are the ones we have been waiting for and we are waking up lol.

So while the first eclipse was heavily about relationships – personal and business – with lots of triangular equations involved – the second eclipse on the 29th is about values and what we believe in and what security is to us. What are our goals and dreams that serve the greater good and how do we bring them into fruition. You may revisit a dream that someone convinced you was unachievable or not possible – now it may seem like it is – particularly if it impacts on others [the relationship theme is still active lol] and the life force that comes with an eclipse may give you the very boost you need to rise up and make it your own.

Cosmic_Egg 

Because it is connected to the Grand Cardinal Cross there is a powerful healing trine pointing towards Pluto and there is a sense of something big being revealed to the masses. A scandal of huge proportions pointed at. And with both Sun and Moon conjunct Mercury we have issues of health arising and with both sextile to Neptune then the collective and deception may come into play. So there may be a charismatic leader brought to their knees for their involvement in a cover up of health issues or we may be blinded by someone promising an answer [Sun trine Pluto]. This is an energy that confounds the machinations of men of greed and manipulation.

The Neptune factor also creates a powerful energy for spiritual practice and meditation etc. and these will help you avoid the egoic eruptions promised by these stellar events also. Do not do your habitual reaction to things – take time instead to respond in ways that serve you and others, do not judge anything – just let it go.

So beware of fools and tyrants peeps and keep your eyes and ears wide-open lol. Do not believe anything you see on mainstream media, as this is a way of blinding you to the truth. The power of sorcery to baffle and blind and numb you is here with this eclipse and also is the power to trust yourself and heal – first empty your body, mind, heart and soul of toxins so that you can listen well to the truth within. The concept of propaganda and lies and cover up is very big with these energies so question everything. Whistle blowing looks like it might light up the skies too lol.

 eclipse taurus

It is time to be free and over the next few months some serious exposure is being pointed at and while the truth will set you free it will indeed seriously piss you off first lol.

Because of the Taurean factor issues may come up around resources, finances and the banking sector, food security and other basic needs. Eclipses also suggest someone leaving of note or someone of note being born around now. So work the Taurus factor. What do you need in your new vision of yourself to create a comfortable lifestyle in what ever you want to do. How can you care for yourself and care for your future.

This is the time to do your manifesting list based on these things – use your mail order to direct the universe as to what you want by being grateful for what you have and what you desire. When you are expressing gratitude for what you have [a love based vibration] then the universe in its wisdom will give you more of what you are grateful for – so use that stubborn Taurean energy to manifest your needs for your new life and your family and do this every day – then watch what happens. Let this list reflect what is good for the group as well as yourself for this is the new energy coming in. All must benefit.

cosmic_tree

An eclipse is like a storm of the spirit – it cleanses and blows and clears the debris allowing change. They shake the tree and unhouse us from our comfort zone – the soul requires intensity for growth and movement – it does not matter to it if the intensity is painful or joyful – it is just required. Think about that and your habits of emotion lol.

So on the evening of the 29th at 7pm we will be having a meditation and those of you that have your representation of the cosmic egg bring it along for manifesting.

And in the interim think of key things – health and healing, duality dissolving, self serving sorcery, poisonous pedagogues, wise wendings, hidden and forbidden fruit, stealthy secrets, mass media madness, fiery freedom, transmutation and transformation lol.

And stay Zen!!!

blood-moon-tetrad

 

And so this incredibly powerful month continues to escalate the energies we are being bathed in and the Grand Cardinal Cross is exacerbating this as the four planets involved – Mars, Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto are all pulling in different directions from each other and they are all in cardinal or action signs so nothing can actually be resolved – only heightened!

 

Also the Uranus – Pluto square forms a part of this energy with all the fires of revolution and evolution having much fuel added to this. This will have a tremendous impact on the planet Earth and the ground will literally being pulled in many directions leading to seismic shifts, volcanic activity [already in Chile and Ecuador] and wild weather as seen in the Solomons and northern Queensland.

 

We are being taken right out of our comfort zone here peeps and nothing is stable under our feet and if you are not already feeling odd and out of sorts here you soon will be I assure you.

 

Do not resist this as normal as you thought you knew it is pretty much over through this. This is a time to recognize you may not have too much control over the wild seas of your existence however you do have a choice as to which waves you wish to ride!

 

This is the time to surrender your need to control everything. We literally have no control whatsoever over what is going on around us however we have total control over how we choose to be in the face of the coming chaos.

Cardinal_Grand_Cross_April_2014

In this month we are dealing with the two eclipses on top of the Grand Cross and Square

The first is the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Libra on the 15th April.

This is going to be a ‘Blood Moon’ [ie red in colour] and is the first of a series of four total eclipses or blood moons over the next two years called a Tetrad.

These babies are rare – much rarer than the blue or black moon [of which we have also recently seen rare occurrence cycles happening] and seriously set the tone for challenging and evolving times ahead.

The next three are October 8th 2014, April 4th 2015 and September 28th 2015.

We have not seen this cycle really since 1995 and so what ever was going on for you then may provide a clue for what is going on now.

vajra eclipse

On April 15th there will be a big hit on relationships and may lead to endings or climaxes in relationship and this will be followed by the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Taurus on the 29th which will facilitate a new long term style of being.

During the Lunar Eclipse on the 15th the Sun and Mercury are also in Cardinal signs of action and this will really push things further. It is likely that there will be many blow ups, arguments and social rage unfolding. People you have always found to be polite and gentle may finally get the nudge to explode with a life time of anger.

Because of the alignments this will really impact on triangular relationships or step families and blended families. Issues between mother in laws or step daughters and other sharp edges could go over the top now. We shall certainly see this on the geo-political stage and this will all unfold for months – it is not like it is going to be here for a day or two and then done – this will bring irrevocable change to lives.

There is a drive for autonomy here and this can be used positively in protecting those who do not have it or explosively in breaking free from the old paradigms that have stifled creativity and the vast majority of humans on the planet for far too long. The status quo is really shifting now.

All of the energy that has held you fast over countless lifetimes are now at the cross road with this Eclipse and month. It is time to unshackle ourselves and birth ourselves anew and we all know how painful birth can be! And because of the triangular nature of all this be mindful of a third spoke in the wheel here – who is undermining you while smiling at your face – work, family, romantic – be very mindful of what you are doing and establishing the truth or otherwise of what you are being told – about anything.

parenting for the world

What is interesting here is that family will become important. Blood ties will out in the end and in some ways if you can garner support from your blood kind in any aspect it will serve you well now – blood is thicker than water remember.

 

If you have planets around 13 degrees in any of the cardinal signs of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn then check your chart for where they fall now as they will initiate new stages of evolution for your and will in all reality lead to big internal and external changes for by the 20th to the 24th of this month they will all be within 1 degree of each other.

 

This is a tremendously challenging time and we will feel scattered, unfocused and exhausted while we figure out who we are and what matters to us – the storm will be pretty intense until we figure out what to let go of – what is no longer serving us.

 

Because this eclipse is occurring before the Grand Cross culminates then it will add to the building of the pressure. This eclipse is basically turning up the heat and the cap stone on the volcano of change both literally and figuratively is very likely to be blown sky high. The planets of force, expansion, revolution and change are all about to go bunta with the eclipse in Libra and with Mars retrograde here and Pluto going retrograde the day before the Eclipse – well I am sure you are beginning to get the idea of how intense this is all going to be. Add the normal Full Moon intensity of emotions into it and away we go peeps.

the way out

Seriously the likelihood of violence, brutality, repression by the state, scandals, dirty deals, exposure of corruption in banking, church and state are all up for grabs here and all capable of being the straw that has broken the long suffering back of the population at large and this will also be true of stable situations in families and businesses that have had a raw wound near the surface for years – it is about to explode.

 

It will be progressive but in all likelihood violently so. The end of an epoch or age is unfolding here and when looking back as you dust yourself off and figure out what is salvageable you will look to this time and go – yep – that’s when it all happened lol. Leaders will fall and new ones will rise and decisions made by those who rule are likely to be wrong and have far reaching consequences for us in the short term and them in the long term.

 

So to recap – on the 14th Pluto goes retro in Capricorn, the Cardinal Grand Cross begins its peak, the 15th brings us the Lunar Eclipse blood moon, on the 19th the sun enters Taurus, on the 20th Uranus squares Jupiter and while Pluto opposes it and the T-square here peaks, followed the next day on the 21st by the 5th of 7 Uranus-Pluto squares and there is also the Grand Trine peak of Venus – Jupiter and Saturn and then the next day on the 22nd we have Jupiter squaring Mars while the Grand Cross Peaks – the year’s most powerful astrological event of Mars-Jupiter-Uranus and Pluto. On the 23rd we have Uranus opposing Mars while Pluto squares Mars and the T- square of Mars-Uranus- Pluto peaks also.

 

From the 20th to the 24th but beginning with the eclipse – hold onto your hats, stay Zen – stay inside where ever you can and avoid crowds, avoid tetchy relatives and difficult bosses or be prepared for powerful and permanent change!!

aya expand_n

Please pay attention folks – really listen to people and be mindful there are many opinions and all are valid. You can agree to disagree and be tolerant of all points of view because mostly all are valid – even when they are wildly mad – accept that the other person is at whatever stage of their evolution and be gentle about it.

At this time all the old wounds that have not been healed are coming screaming to the surface and this will cloud things dramatically so practice responding rather than reacting and walk away if it looks like that is the only sensible option. Do not personalize anything!!!

 

Remember what ever is coming out of some one’s mouth says a great deal about the person speaking and nothing at all about the person being spoken to – and keep your own projections out of it too. Remember when one finger points out three fingers point back. Everything is the mirror and this is a wonderful time to see your own inherited madness and let it go.

Real change is possible here because these powerful energies will bring the deepest of your fears and issues to the surface now and with the line up as it is then there is real option to do it differently.

Shamanic-Art

It is true that some of you will experience some of these changes coming in the most painful and distressing of ways and that will tell you a lot about the emotional bath your system dwells in and this too is a signal to do it differently – not all will be able to manage this and remember to have compassion for everyone’s journey – we are all fighting the same internal battle and some are further down the path is all.

 

What will be powerful at this time is to spend time with people who support you and hear you. You will be much more likely to stay on top of it all if you are feeling nurtured and understood. Avoid the opposite. And do things for yourself to tune in to the inner landscape for all the answers are here and this is the only place they will be flowing from for a new age of growth.

 

And then on the 29th there will be the Solar Eclipse right across Australia [meaning the energies will be strongest here] and while there will be more about this closer to the date and meditations offered to travel through this – just be mindful that this too is coming to top of a completely tumultuous month.

solar eclipse and change

This first solar eclipse of the year is significant firstly in its appearance with its beautiful ring of fire but mainly in that it builds on the whole of the month and the Lunar Eclipse preceding it. Because this one is in Taurus it will set a pattern in motion of renewed and possibly brand new manifesting and financial pathways.

 

Also these eclipses bring significant markers into play – birth, death, financial chaos, claim on our resources etc. Endings always precede beginnings – as doors close so do other ones open and while the void appears terrifying it is no more real than anything else we encounter in this dream scape lol.

 

Suffice it to say it will be intense – to match the rest of the month – be Zen – to the best of your ability.

 

Schedule of Meditations

 Hum Vajra_Bell-300x208

The meditations utilizing the Vajra work – only ever before done in the monasteries of India and Tibet under Tibetan Buddhism – continue to move us all in profound and powerful ways.

 

Tuesday 15th April at 7.00pm – there will be a meditation to access all that is present to us to help us navigate through these powerful times in a way that propels us into that which we seek. I am made aware that the Goddesses will be coming through for this one – Kwan Yin, Portia and others for this is their time of power.

 

Friday 18th April [colloquially known as good Friday] at 7.00pm there will be a meditation for release of the old paradigm – the changing of the guard from the Piscean Age to the Aquarian Age – from the concept of a god to the concept of the DharmaKaya – the unknowable.

 

Shadow Work for Easter – Following this meditation there will be an opportunity for people to come over the easter weekend and do some seriously powerful shadow release work – this is not like anything offered before and will involve the channeled ones assisting in releasing the most ancient of karmic and incarnational issues in a way that has not been possible before – these will be individually booked sessions and mountains will be moved lol. The cellar [yes the cellar – how appropriate lol] is being prepared in sacred ways for this wonderful process.

 

Monday the 21st April will involve the normal fortnightly group that has been meeting for months now in which a lot of this will be completed – again in a most powerful way.

 

Tuesday the 22nd which is the night of the major strike of energy as it has been described above we will again be conducting a meditation to capitalize on all of this to make it work for us and for us to work through it so we are not overwhelmed by what is coming but empowered to grow by leaps and bounds.

 

 

mabon candles

 

 

A Ritual for the Eclipses

 

Get a red candle and carve symbols of the moon into it, your name, and symbols of what you are releasing on the top half and what you are seeking on the bottom half.

 

Some time before nightfall take a ritual bath with essential oils – you can use rose or lavender, frankinsense or citrus. As you bathe notice that you are ready to release all that no longer serves you with an open heart – that you are ready to evolve.

 

Then taking the candle place some olive oil on your fingers and starting in the middle of the candle draw the oil to the top of the candle and then from the middle to the base of the candle – this is a very ancient way of energizing the candle.

 

Use your breathe to slow everything down – to be clear and concise about letting go of fear and all other emotional addictions. Visualize yourself growing a tail right down to the centre of the earth.

 

Sprinkle yourself lightly with salt water then or aura soma and as you light the candle say, “Ohm Ah Hum” and visualize all you have contemplated leaving your body into the earth – express real gratitude for this.

 

Then visualize a bright blue light pouring down through the crown of your head – bringing all that you desire to transform the old into the new, asking for clarity and truth to inform you during this cycle that you may awaken to all that you are.

phoenix rising

Then ask this question and write down the answer….

what do I need to know now – to rise like the phoenix into my new existence’

What ever the answer is create a mantra for yourself out of it and write that down – then while focusing all your attention on the original answer light the paper and offer it up saying “I claim this energy as my own to be utilized for my highest good and the good of all that lives”

Let the candle burn safely through the night until it extinguishes itself. For extra oomph you may draw on the Goddesses of the Moon and transformation Kwan Yin, Isis, Diana, Hecate, Artemis.

shamanic healing 2

Shamanic healing is a very ancient form of working with a client and these practitioners have been around in recorded history for over 60,000 years – from the Tungus in Siberia, from the rock art deep in the mountains of Europe, to the living art of the first people of Oz – in fact they are recorded in all cultures that have occupied this planet through the rituals and ceremonies handed down through the ages.

This profound and powerful way of release and renewal is based upon the principle that what ever is occurring in your current life – break down, break up, illness, grief and loss, guilt and shame, addiction, anxiety and terror, inadequacy and feelings of lack of worth or value – what ever pain or life circumstances you are currently dealing with – it is all based on a disturbance of equilibrium within you.

Something is out of balance. And if it is manifesting in external or internal symptoms to point this out to you, it is doing so that you may do what ever is required to restore balance.

shamans mask

This presupposes a very deep truth. That you are never a victim. That what ever is occurring for you is being co-created by you – with others or with your own physical, psychological, emotional or spiritual reality in order for you to heal [not cure] yourself of the imbalance and allow your life to return to equilibrium.

And you have the power to do this – absolutely. The placebo effect is a classic observation of this ability.

We are taught in the west that an illness is beyond your control and must be medicated or cut in order to subdue it, control or eliminate it and the same with your emotional and psychological world – that it is like a Newtonian clock in that when it breaks – replace the broken bit and all will be well.

Again let us drug the heart and mind into submission. And as for spirituality – well we actually don’t get much of that on the planet currently – we have religion instead which is all about giving your power to the priest and they will get you to “god” lol. Crowd control really.

We-are-a-stand-in-this-web-of-life

From the moment of your birth unto the moment of your death everything is connected to the web of life – of all creation and your life is a rhythm of ebb and flow, waxing and waning and we are forever experiencing the ‘little deaths’ of life’s changes, release and renewal.

But we are also taught in the west that we can only flow – forward – forcefully – and that change is to be resisted at all costs and the only movement allowed is expansion – there is no room for letting go, for the cycles of life, the seasons, we are death deniers and terrified of our own mortality and this whole process creates an immense imbalance that leads absolutely to the pain and heartache that has become the given norm of the world we currently dwell in.

When a client comes to a Shamanic practitioner for a healing – all of this is understood and woven into the experience. Where the client is – in the long journey between life and death – in the fabric of their social world, included or excluded, valued or not – in the balance of their physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual bodies – is all taken into account as they present – willing to change.

shamans journey

A Shamanic healer will have already done a divination for the client before they present for the treatment – to see what is there in the landscape of the soul’s journey.
And when the client arrives and the process begins – the healer enters this landscape to see what is there – they meet the client as their medicine – their connection with spirit nature – bird, animal, a creature that may swim or crawl – and if that creature is bound or trapped or wounded in that landscape – that deep and primordial landscape – then that is resolved in that world in the service of the client.

The are the earliest navigators of consciousness, skillful to a high degree in journeying and bringing back the resources needed to aid the client in the ‘here and now’ process of their lives.
They have many resources and skills at their disposal to ascertain what has led to the client’s symptoms – as they present to them. No matter what the problem, while addressing those symptoms and restoring balance to the physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual realms of the client – they are always at heart observing the flight of the soul and where the client is in the journey of their life between birth and death.

soul flight

The Shaman is a healer, a priest or priestess, a medium and story teller, an actor or entertainer, a trickster and prophet, a world builder and sorcerer, a mage and magician and many possibilities besides. There is a great deal of misinformation out there but in truth it is a lens through which the world can be viewed in new and visionary ways and is the oldest medicine ways practiced in human society.

This profound and deep healing will then flow out into the external world of the client – over the next hours, days, weeks, months and years and it continues to flow into the river of their life.

BlueWaterDropBalance

There may things that the client needs to do after the treatment – what is there is there and instructions are given as required however the balance is restored in a deep and powerful way that then allows other things of imbalance in the clients life to fall back into place.

cosmic connections

Stars for April 2014 – what a cracker of a month!

And now as we enter April proper following the Black Moon and its catalytic energies of yesterday – the Grand Cardinal Cross of April to June unfolds and we shall see a wide variety of geo-political crises that are the hall mark of this configuration as demonstrated over and again when they have formed in the past. Certainly it feeds into the most volatile time we have witnessed on the planet in the past few decades.

This energy is likely to produce acts of terrorism, seismic shifts and wild weather and a likely escalation of some regional conflict spilling over the borders.

Cardinal_Grand_Cross_April_2014

These planets of change are all in cardinal signs and this means something happening – absolute action. Because they are all in such tension at 13 degrees it will be quite unpredictable and one will barely have one’s head around some chaos or conflict when another will emerge, then another. The economy may not fare well at all under these alignments either – triggered by a crisis somewhere on the globe.

This is all happening personally too – who here is currently dwelling in any kind of comfort zone lol? You know it is real – everyone is talking about the pressure within and without.

You will have a pretty clear idea about now – re what is needing to crack open in your own life. Remember that resistance is useless and the more you do that – the greater the pain will be – surrender and let go. A lot of people around the world will be doing that by the way – the rising of the people is coming – ‘occupy’ has barely begun and they are not happy lol.

I am quite glad to be going nowhere for the next little while and again I am glad we live here in Oz and would encourage anyone contemplating a non urgent trip overseas to maybe wait a while lol. And avoid large and unruly crowds for awhile – potential for explosiveness is high lol.

Dyonisus           Apollo3         prometheus

Dionysus [Pluto] is rising folks and you know what he did for the feminine and what he did to the walled city state [Apollo] and the Promethean [Uranus] Gift of the fire from the gods [who after all were created in our image lol] shall indeed burn through the dross!

This truly is a transpersonal energy within and without and look to your own chart to see where these planets sit and at what degree and anyone with points or positions near 13 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn ought pay attention. And where normally Mars in Libra would play diplomat – because it is retrograding it will only add to the conflicting energy.

lunar eclipse 15th april_n

And on the 15th we will have a total Lunar Eclipse in Libra. This rising energy will be influenced by the series of eclipses that follow on April 29th, October 8th and 23rd of this year. All lending themselves to increases in what ever gyrating unpredictability occurs in markets, weather, geo-political struggles and revolutions that will tear down institutions that can finally be seen for what they are.

Governments are likely to appear frozen and powerless – which in truth they are anyway for they serve the corporation not the citizen – and the high pace of technological and interestingly pharmaceutical [read personally programmed mind altering] change will add to the seeming chaos.

As this Full Moon Eclipse is in Libra of course it emphasizes relationships. Eclipses shine the light in the dark – allowing things to be seen that are not normally so – emotions will be heightened and old ideas that no longer work exposed to make way for transformation.

They will have been on the cards for awhile these relationship changes and now may just happen – be mindful – you will not be the only one affected and what you do to others you ultimately do to yourself so look to your chart to see where you are affected and stay focused on the north node of the moon in your chart – it is where you are heading after all lol.

balance

Balance and harmony matter here – this is the end of a 19 year eclipse cycle so what is going on may well be reflected by where you were and what was going on for you then. Before you throw relationships away – ask your self first – what can I do to improve them – there will be a strong desire to simply up and run with these energies and this may be something you come to seriously regret further down the track.

Eclipses can also mean loss so if something needs to go then let it go gracefully – learn what you need to learn from this and then move forward.

At this same time the Grand Cross is reforming and you will feel pulled in a million directions – hard. What ever you decide – let your spiritual practice guide you for this is the life you are moving towards. Where ever you have felt trapped, stagnant, imprisoned and have not been able to see your way out of – will with this eclipse – suddenly have a surprising outcome and that which held you tight will surprise you with the ease by which it can melt away at this time.

Just to add to all this cheer you will find the south node of the moon in Aries along with the Sun and Mercury [rebellion, breaking free the chains, driving force, innovative thinking, fiery honesty] directly oppositional to Moon, north node and Mars [group resolution, co-operation, sensuality] and so the whole month – depending on your own chart – will be explosive but whether that is a penny bunger or a Krakatoa for you personally remains to be seen.

Onedoor

Remember as doors close – so do they open – what ever needs to be released it is only to make room for the next step of your journey – some of this will be more painful than others depending on whether you are initiating it or not however what ever door opens for you have the courage to step through and trust the universe.

The polarities between yin and yang – masculine and feminine – materialism and spirituality – individual and group – truth and lies – will continue to rise after this until we come to the New Moon Annular Solar Eclipse [particularly over Oz and Antarctica] on the 29th April in Taurus.

These eclipses bring new energies into motion so all that has been sown will now flood out into the world. This is part of a series influenced by Neptune and so will dissolve and release as well – this may mean a sudden and powerful loss of a treasured something or someone or an unfulfilled promise or wasted resources. What ever comes just go with the flow.

vajra eclipse

Because it is in Taurus all the things we value are up for grabs including our personal security of family and loved ones and as a fixed sign does not like to let go but a South Node Solar eclipse here will just as likely force the issue – something we may not like to see ending will end and look to the south node in your chart currently to see what this is likely to be and where you may need to re-evaluate your position.

As this is conjunct to Mercury in the same sign it means we can deal with this effectively and as it trines Pluto we can guarantee transformation out of what ever comes and this will be sudden and not too painful – a bit like pulling a bandaid off – better done suddenly lol.

Saturn in the picture as well [in tough Scorpio] will allow us to review all this with a fairly jaundiced eye about what is real here and what is truthfully in our best interests and so the answers you need will be apparent whether you like them or not of course is up to you.

Mars aligned with Venus here will bring more of the spotlight onto relationships. You know what they say about Mars and Venus – war and peace – so this will add to the volatility and instability in relationships over the next 6 months which may in fact be the icing on the cake for some of them – personal, business or intra-psychic lol.

sacred feminine

The fixed star relationships in this eclipse are also interesting and again highlight the Feminine principles of intuition and compassion – maternal strength with dignity for all. It will be curious to see if we get a new world leader who is female during the next 6 months or whether the issues of what is happening to women in the world take center stage for some reason! Long overdue if so lol.

The changes coming can be so complete that within 6 months from now you may look back on this time here currently as something out of a dream. And then as Jupiter powers towards Leo you will approach your new life with enthusiasm and a light heart.

But first we must navigate through them. The tension will build over the Cardinal [action] aspects over May and June also so it is really important to stay Zen – what ever turns up.
For review!

10 April 2014 – Mercury heads N in declination
14 April 2014 – Pluto stations retrograde
15 April 2014 – New Moon and Lunar Eclipse at 25-Libra

20 April 2014 – Jupiter squares Uranus
20 Apr 2014 – Jupiter opposes Pluto
21 Apr 2014 – 5th Uranus square Pluto, exact aspect

20-23 April – Strong cardinal transits

The Eostre [Goddess of Fertility – rabbits and eggs – oestrogen etc- despite the bullshit of the patriarchal religion wanna be’s lol] week of April 2014 is highlighted for much of the cardinal crisis energies.

egg break

We are at a tipping point folks – no more no less and as explained before, the world and each of us individually will appear to be lurching from one crisis to another as we dance around the cardinal configuration of the planets and because of the unfavourable aspects we will indeed be Unable to resolve some of these things – so again the admonition is to stay Zen and wait.

Do this personally as it certainly is unlikely to happen out there in the world – quite the opposite as those in “power” begin to realise they have no power at all – never did – and will do everything they can to hang on to their status quo lol.

The Uranus-Pluto world squares will bring about more revolutionary sentiments, violence and disruption that forces the status quo into what I consider to be suicidal attempts to regain ‘control,’as the status quo is actually losing power.
Again I would be leery of being overseas too much during this cycle – there are some places you may not wish to get stuck in lol.

As one reviews previous alignments like this we can certainly expect an upsurge in counter cultural activity, the drive for personal freedom including in what have appeared to be stable democracies [there may be hope for the wizards of oz yet lol] and we shall see increasingly extreme measures taken by the corporate toadies against the citizenry of their own nations – we should all adopt Iceland’s attitude I say lol

So hang onto your hats, enjoy the ride [and remember it is all just a ride lol] and remember you came here for this lol!!!

There will be Meditations with the Vajra energies on both eclipses and other occasions – if you wish to attend contact me via facebook inbox or the number available – they are seriously life changing and liberating lol xxx

transformation

And so the Astrological year rolls to an end again as we enter the watery realms of Pisces for this new moon – returning to the watery depths of the womb from which we came – through which we entered this universe – and which holds the race mind and memory – that conglomeration of genetic weirdness and generational pain, that is the grail that holds all knowledge of hat has ever been on this planet and oh what a journey it has been lol

As the age of Pisces grinds to an end – its lust for war and madness, greed and corroption, power and politics also will be undone. the Black Age or Kali Yuga is over and the Age of Aquarius – symbolised by the group mind or collective has arrived.

As one age ends and another arises so we shall pass through an initiatory experience to reflect the moving through dimensions along the way, here we become the spiritual in the flesh, the one planetary mind, the one consciousness and there is nothing that has prepared us for this. Quite the contrary – the mechanisms of the state that have brought this world to the wretched state of disrepair and despair and the lies that have been told to justify their position – will not let go easily.

repression of eros

You only have to look what is going on in Syria, Ukraine and Egypt to see this. The illusion of separation is passing however those who have no power and shall not make the shift are doing all in their power to attempt to hold on to the illusion and we are all caught in it. None are immune. Some are simply more awake.

Right now Jupiter is squaring Uranus and activating the Cardinal T-square and this is shaking us again to wake up out of any deceptive slumber we are in about what is really going on.

It is important with this coming moon to continue to move towards stillness and peace within. This is one of my daily tasks now – to suspend judgement – to not add to the fire – to be completely at peace with all that is going on – you can see how well that is going lol – although tis true I actually had a compassionate thought for abbott the other day – I mean really – imagine being trapped in that body lol

spirit work

So it is useful for us to take time for ourselves for it is only in the within spaces or inner planes can we bypass the chaos of the external world. It is necessary for us to turn to the spiritual centre of our existence for it is only within this will we find the peace, love and compassion that is needed to lead ourselves out of the old with innovative, healing tools for a new way of being.

This New Moon in Pisces is part of another Black Moon cycle – the first in January and this is really quite unusual – one a year is regular enough but two in quick succession is not. And the next new moon on March 30th will be in Aries [the new cycle will begin at the equinox] and so there will be some seismic shifts with this moon as it triggers the eclipse season and contains the exact Cardinal Grand Cross and within that another exact hit of the Uranus – Pluto Square, that has been the source of all revolutionary action across the globe since it began.

This will be a seriously transformational time at the end of March so anything you can do now to access true vision and a place of peace before it hits the proverbial fan the better quite frankly lol. There are only two more passes of this square to happen – December this year and March next year however because of other line ups this hit is a cracker!

dreaming

The Moon in Pisces is always dreamy and visionary and as it is just prior to the beginning of the new astrological year it will initiate changes in the inner planes that will be brought into being at the following New Moon in Aries. With Mercury going direct on the 28th just days before the new moon rising we will be asked to examine what we have learned about our quest for the future – our desires and dreams. This retro period was particularly stressful dancing between Aquarius and Pisces and has left people quite shaken and confused.

This energy is further challenged by Saturn here and again the heart and mind meet in an effort to forge a new path built on integrity and authenticity. Saturn is about to turn retrograde in Scorpio on March 2nd and facilitates the gathering and melding of our souls needs in Cancer [Jupiter] with the greater good in Pisces  into our daily existence.

Neptune remains in Pisces and is joined by the wounded healer in Chiron – and Jupiter in Cancer trines this new moon – just before it goes direct on the 5th March. All this water energy deepens our connections to our emotional body and the collective unconscious and our soul’s journey within it. This becomes quite forceful as the planet slows to turn.

egg break

So this New Moon in Pisces will initiate an expansion of the senses and an opportunity to tune in deeply to the inner planes that will continue to be sparked in an opening psyche and filling the month of March with a luminosity of insight quite remarkable. The veil will be very thin and open to tearing this month and if you are an awakening soul you will hear the voice of your own God I Am presence – guiding you to prepare for the transformations and alchemical marriage ahead and if you are not then you are quite likely to wonder if you might be going mad lol. Have compassion for your fellow travelers at this time – everyone is fighting the same dark battle inside!

Mars also goes retro in Libra the day of the New Moon adding to the mix and a retro period here keeps Mars in Libra for 6 months instead of the usual 6 weeks. This is interesting as Mars is all about action and action here in the sign of relationships so while all this transformation is going on it will help us to navigate the new patterns within the context of working with each other – which is a very Aquarian age way of doing things.

Relationships that are not equitable, that do not seek diplomacy and common good be they business, personal, religious or political will not work under these energies – look around – the common man and woman is seizing back power from the those tyrants in patriarchal power and demanding justice for the common good.

Hafiz Street Art

“I have come into this world to hear this: every song the earth has sung since it was conceived in the Divine’s womb and began spinning from it’s wish, every song by wing and fin and hoof, every song by hill and field and tree and woman and child, every song of stream and rock, every song of tool and lyre and flute, every song of gold and emerald and fire, every song the heart should cry with magnificent dignity to know itself as God: for all other knowledge will leave us again in want and aching – only imbibing the glorious Sun will complete us.

I have come into this world to experience this: men so true to love they would rather die before speaking an unkind word, men so true their lives are God’s covenant – the promise of hope. I have come into this world to see this: the sword drop from men’s hand even at the height of their arc of rage because we have finally realized there is just one flesh we can wound” ~HAFIZ~

aries full moon oct 13

Full Moon in Aries – Lunar Eclipse – Sweat to be held on Saturday 19th October at 5pm

 

Under the Libran Sun this marriage of the energies of Sun and Moon, speaks to us powerfully about taking action in our spheres of partnerships and relationships.

The Aries Full Moon is always a time of powerful new beginnings and bursting free and is here powerfully opposed by Libra’s need for balance and harmony.

 

 The aggression and action of Aries potently opposes the harmony and balance of Libra and look to your birth and transit charts to see where this will impact you personally.

 

The eclipse season continues with the New Moon total Solar Eclipse in Scorpio on the 3rd of November but more about that later!! Suffice it to say things are ramping up again folks following a relatively quiet period lol xxx

jupiter in cancer 2

This eclipse makes the energies of this Full Moon much more intense than usual and with Jupiter in Cancer forming a Cardinal T square with both Sun and Moon here – makes it even more powerful. We will be called here to rise above the lower bodies and mundane issues to support and honour the group or tribal need of all.

(Remember the cardinal signs are the initiation signs for the beginning of each season – Aires, Libra, Cancer and Capricorn – and as such are powerful indicators of new beginnings]

 

The Libra Sun and Aries Moon are quite oppositional – being open and conciliatory vs headstrong and wilful, finding an harmonious outcome vs conflictual stances or indeed the seeking of peace and life vs war and death!

clearing the decks

 

What ever has been in a bit of a holding pattern for you is about to be cracked open and old patterns of relating to the other [ie your self projected] will be highlighted and you will find your patience with these old patterns at an end. Here we are blessed to transcend the old parts of self that are holding in to old paradigms and the split duality of self and to focus on what we want to build in love.

egg break

Remember when the egg is broken from the outside – life ends, but when it is broken from the inside – life begins anew!!

 

So there will be a great challenge with this Moon that will require you to be standing on your own two feet and no longer selling yourself out to meet the needs of others while at the same time being aware of the greater need of the larger community – quite the challenge indeed.

 

And because of the intensity of these energies emotions can easily come screaming [yes literally] to the surface as the old attempts to deal with this – fall away as totally useless.

Here is the moon to call upon all that loves and supports you on all levels of your being for the inspiration you need to break free – and remain in a place of love and integrity while you do it.

human hampster wheel

This may lead to a lot of the old paradigms, relationships, friends and family – that keep you in the hamster wheel going round and round and getting nowhere – falling away as we see beyond the programming of our society and childhood for what it is.

 

Patterns and beliefs that are designed to keep us as a small cog in the wheel – a willing sacrificial lamb to our own slaughter of wellbeing, self esteem and self love.

 

This Moon offers us a way out – a way of peeling off the masks that no longer serve – that allow the sacred divine nurturing feminine in all humans to rise up and say No more! The artificial ego and its forelock tugging fear have an opportunity here to be released powerfully. The healing potency of this is actually very strong here, with all these energies so make the most of it dear ones!! Spring is upon us with all that it promises!

 

Remember that resistance to this from the dark within you and the dark around you will be strong also and will do what it can to hold you in the old patterns of fear and inadequacy – do not let that win at this stage! It is not necessary to throw the baby out with the bathwater. You have learned many things from these patterns and leave them in the way that best suits you – with love and compassion – but leave none the less. Your soul’s journey and the soul’s journey of your tribe require the shaking of the tree at this time as we birth a new way of being and a new humanity.

divine nature

Be open and trust – keep your feet firmly on the earth beneath you and know you are doing this for the benefit of all! We are all growing in exponential ways now as our multi dimensional reality is infusing itself into the dense matter of our flesh. Whether you know about it or not or like it or not it is happening. There are many painful adjustments to this – sleep disturbance, aches and pains and illnesses, bangs and knocks to the body [as much of it is processed through the physical form as it releases the old baggage] and other responses.

 

The result of this integration with our larger self is a transmutation of limiting and sabotaging and destructive thought patterns that have prevented us from knowing who we really are. And as this occurs the resistance to change also rises [change is the only constant and the thing we fear the most lol – ah paradox] which accounts for the rising ideological madness we see in the world today!

planet cleanse

And as we experience this for ourselves so do we assist the planet free herself from the toxins and rubbish we have inflicted upon her. As there is more of us present to heal so our ability to see the world healed and whole and at peace and love is much greater and this is really all that is required for change folks. Don’t rail against the machine for that simply binds you in it. Simply be at peace and see all things healed and whole including yourself and there is great power in this for there is great power in you and as a creator god so shall you create that which you imagine lol.

 

We shall not see this penumbral eclipse here in Australia [but that is not a bad thing lol – that which is under the path of the eclipses usually experiences the greatest jolt of them] but it does hit America, Africa and Europe so watch what happens there over the next few months lol. However we shall all be able to use the energies for growth and freedom if we consciously choose to.

 

Remember Lunar eclipses are for the inner journey – to go deep within the psyche and clear the emotional body and gain insight into what drives you. What is discovered here and healed here will be brought into the world at the solar eclipse on November 3rd. As you go within in this powerful way ask for illumination of the people in your life – that you may see what your connection is really all about with them and this too will facilitate an illumination, a lightening up and laughter at the absurdity of life and a letting go of the dramas of your existence.

spiritual rebirth

There are initiations of the Heart available with this eclipsed moon so simply ask for this, whether you can come to the sweat or not – simply create your own ritual and sit under the light of this wonderment on the night and the hours that follow and much will unfold by your conscious intent! Know that you are moving towards being the awakened balanced design of this present incarnation – fulfilling the blueprint you were born with and what you came to do lol.

 

Be aware that Eclipses also command respect and can produce some volatile energies for change which can cause all kinds of issues to erupt so be careful and do not take unnecessary risks around this time. And remember the energies between eclipses are very intense so the time between Saturday and November 3rd will involve being drawn deeper within ourselves for release of the aspects of being still holding on to fear and illusion and they will resist being drawn into the light creating a lot of internal pressure – do what you need to calm and centre yourself through this time – meditate, be by the water etc – for the clean out is here lol.

sweatlodeg 5

As we journey around the medicine wheel in this ceremony it is to cast off the dead wood that binds us to old ways of being.
We seek to know what holds us and we call upon the journey with spirit and with our personal medicine – our totem, our connection with spirit nature to release these old binds.

To journey to the wall of our obstacles  and see them for what they are – the wounds carried inside us – reflected back to us in the external world for our illumination and release.
To offer them up with gratitude for all that they have taught us and then to flow within the earth – deep within the womb to connect with all that is.

Physiologically, the lodge helps to tune the autonomic nervous system, creating a new internal balance, smoothing out the peaks and lows of emotional and energetic changes. Psychologically, it fosters feelings of well being, peace and self-worth. It is a powerful tool for growth and also for specific kinds of life difficulties, emotional turbulence and trauma.

So for only $20 come and join us on this fine and beautiful day  – bring a plate of sumptuous food to share after fasting from breakfast

Come and join us at the sweat to maximise these beautiful energies as we travel around the medicine wheel to gain vision from the east, strength from the north, healing from the west and insight from our medicine and ancestors in the south and bring all back to the centre of the lodge and the centre of ourselves where we truly discover ourselves as the axis mundi – the tree of life and the bridge between heaven and earth!!

solstice tree winter

The age of the Feminine is here – it is time to claim our heritage ladies !!!

There is a wild Mid – Winter Gathering to claim these energies for change.

On this overnight stay we shall draw on the Energies of the Divine Feminine to immerse ourselves deeply in the water element for transformation and renewal of the engine room of our creativity – our emotions. We shall draw upon the power of the earth element to renew the flesh. We shall draw upon the fire element to invigorate our spirit and soul and we shall draw upon the air to empty the mind!

This beautiful energy can be deeply inspirational or deeply escapist – the choice, as always, will be yours.

solstice man

On this most magical of evenings we shall gather at a location in the Adelaide Hills for a mutual garnering of energies for the beginning of the New Year as the Sun promises return after the shortest day! Solstice – we shall honour the passing of the old year and honour the promise of life renewed by the coming spring.

They day will begin early with a Sweat on the Saturday the 21st at 9am for those who wish to attend at the usual site and this will be recommended as a wonderful way to tune in.

fire dance

And then we shall gather down on the penisula to awaken the divination wheel, to honour what is being released from our personal lives, to ascend the path to the cauldron of fire, to let go, to sing the old songs as we dance and weave a new fate, then honouring the new with a feast and libation of merriment, laughter and play.

And before we leave – an exchange of trust and life renewed before we return to the world.

The energies are powerful and we shall dance upon them as we weave a new fate, a new world.

The planetary energies continue to support change and letting go at this time so come and dance the dance of life ladies.

If you are aware and watching and working with the transformational energies – none of this is surprising to you and you will navigate through this as with all things – observing and working for a better world.

we are writing the new myths, creating the new rituals, weaving the new songs and story lines for a new shared future.

The sweeping changes will get stronger and more violent for some people as they continue to resist the changes that are required.

What this essentially means is that any story you are holding onto to deny your need to grow and evolve – what ever it is – is very likely to be the one thing in your face that requires you to change now.

Cosmic_Egg

the Cosmic egg is cracking from the inside out folks and that which is broken from the inside begets new life!!!

there are many categories of challenge to this awakening – the hungry ghosts of our past, the demons of our own creation in the battlefield of our physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual bodies. there are dark and destructive forces who tempt us with what appears beautiful and escapist but lead us down a dark path – strangling and suffocating all our promise. the void does not exist and yet the world depends upon it lol.

It may well appear that all is well for these energies can lead to growth and expansion – however this will be temporary and not even available to all and the walls are still cracking, the early warning seismic shifts are still mounting, even though the institutions appear to be going about their business with nothing changing – nothing could be farther from the truth.

dissolving duality

Water is cleansing and sweeps all before it and it seeks the deepest place to gather – water upon water – feminine energy – creating the void – that which appears barren and empty however is the fruitful magnetic darkness from which all creation flows – offering regeneration and renewal once the storm has passed.

This event can bring very deeply suppressed emotions to the surface, feelings of anxiety, not being good enough, lost love and longing for poor choices, guilt and shame re negative behavior that will allow you to finally face and be accountable for your actions, your defensiveness and reactionary tendencies will be brought home now.

During such times is when we want to crawl back into the hole, the familiarity of old patterns and beliefs that allow us to play victim and wait for the savior to come and save us – well that’s not going to happen lol.  Do not fall for this – it will make the next hit even more painful.

There is no going back – not ever again – the door is closed to that reality and new doorways in new dimensions are opening up all over the place and some of this is so strange and unfamiliar, again you are tempted to crawl back into the hole – but no.

goddess blessing

It is time to leave our comfort zones and grow. Just be present. Don’t Judge anything. Just experience and ask, what do I need to know from this, to grow – what ever the hell it is, that is flooding down, lol.

For the new doorway you stand before will open to new possibilities and on the retreat we shall draw on the moon, the solstice, the Goddess and all things that love and support us on every level of our being to rise up, release and renew – to husk the corn of all that is dead and to plant the new seeds deep into our soul and psyche for rebirth and regeneration!!

This will be different for all of us for we all walk a different path and we all have had different experiences to get here to this point – however by being willing to walk in our own shadow and to confront the delusions and illusions we hold then so shall we find the mystery that is our own personal journey while recognizing we are part of the collective as well.

when women wake - mountains move

Because these energies involve emotion, intuition, soul and spirit, the divine feminine and the unseen realms and because they call us to action, to leadership and right action – there is so much here to be gained for the journey ahead.

If we do this well we shall soak up the blessings and immediately put them to good use [which is also required with the rest of the year’s energies]. We shall form new dreams, renewed hope and feel the love of the cosmic grace that is sweeping us all at this time.

Every sound in every cell of our bodies is singing in profound harmony for the miracle of changes rising up within us now. We are being showered with multiple blessings and opportunities to create a new symphony of being and so the possibilities here are limitless to sow the seeds for a profound new future. On the retreat we shall indeed sow such seeds and honour our transition.

For all who have worked diligently, put their growth ahead of the mundane, refused to sell their soul to gain the material world, who have placed their inner voice above their public mask – you are now coming to reap the rewards of such endeavours.

feminine soul arising

So on the midwinter retreat we shall set the tone for the time ahead, we shall awaken the cosmic wheel, we shall speak of the change to the horned god, we shall release the old and welcome the new, we shall dance around the cauldron and fire as we weave what we seek, we shall feast and have merriment, play and have fun – and as we leave the next day after further immersion – we are clear – we are firmly on our path of love and laughter, light and allowance.

We shall rise above and set ourselves free, we shall unchain ourselves from the egoic desire to rule, we shall release ourselves from the longing for the light and embrace both aspects of the duality within us – we shall become the vessel that holds the light and rise accordingly into our true natures.

That in truth all the sparks of the divine need to do is dream of a better world and plant those seeds and trust it will unfold.

tree of life

That you can recognize the roots of the tree of which we are all a part, that the roots join to form a tree of life in which we can love and create a better world by dreaming new branches of possibility for each other!!

For this is how the universe forms and continues to form, because you are spirit and spirit grows and continues without end – it is the essence of it all – the power within your divine imagination, dreams, grace and hope – the Power of becoming – the Power to Be Yourself!!!

So if you have been through the profound changes of initiation, if you wish to continue stepping forward into life for the planet and your self and your tribe, if you wish to renew yourself again and prepare for the changes ahead – then follow the link and register. Soon you will all be sent an email outlining what to bring, where to bring it to, information on how to prepare and the cost involved.

This indeed shall be a gathering of the wild women in all of us – to celebrate, to dance, to sing and to howl at the moon should the mood take us, to sit by the fire and drink and feast and to dream in the warm blankets of the circle of women divine!!
