Crescent Moon

Thursday, December 9th, 2010

The moon is expanding her light as she travels through the zodiac sign of Aquarius. As she is the Elder Moon of Sacred Silence, Giving, and Guardians, she will call forth this energy through the vibrations of Transpersonal expression (Aquarius). She will vibrate the humanitarian awareness that Aquarius urges. She will tilt the gift giving to friends right now and the reaching out a hand to help someone along the way. She will encourage the feelings of love, particularly unconditional love. Guardians will be easy to feel, see and hear. Listen well, respond to their guidance, and feel the blessings.

The moon, at her Crescent stage, reminds you to re-edify what you are focusing on and make sure it is the focus of your true and most positive desires. You are creating during this growing cycle and you do want to create what you want and not abort it by fearful thoughts, denial thoughts, and negative fateful feelings. Be alert, as this moon cycle will bring you through the passageway of alertness.

Mercury is sitting in a Stationary position in Capricorn, a “standstill” if you will. It may be a day that making decisions is difficult. Mercury is hip-to-hip with Pluto in Capricorn and the urge to make changes is going on…but the how to may not be clear, and the “going forward” will not feel possible. Oh, my, controversy in the lunar cycle to this Mercury cycle. Well, not really. Stop and ponder before you act. Remember to come inward (as Mercury most certainly will draw you inward for the next 3 weeks), listen to the higher inner voice and then make decisions.

Mercury has connected positively with Venus (in Scorpio), and the ideals of relationships will be evaluated. The sensual dance will come through, the desire for deeper communication will take place, and the clock-work of questions for creating a family will tick, urging communication around, “Now? Is it now we should start a family?” For those of you who are done having a family, well, you may be questioning other fields to birth together–a project you have wanted to create.

Mercury does initiate her jaunt in retrograde through Capricorn and over the Christmas holiday, that may serve you well. It will be a call to ponder what you are spending, asking yourself if this is a true gift or a “let me look good,” reality. Practical Capricorn could get in the way and too many practical gifts may be chosen or none at all. Hopefully if the “no spending” sign comes up for you, it turns to the “let’s make the gift from our heart,” be the message that shines and activates your gift giving. Whatever it is, come within and make the choice from a loving heart.

May this moon cycle bring you insights and blessings from your inner realm of sacred wisdom.

AWEN!

Season of Unselfishness

Monday, December 6th, 2010

This is a season of unselfishness….giving to others, enjoying the Light of Love, and expressing in kindness. Each of us turn our thinking toward a softer side of life.

As you know, I often look at the star patterns to see what type of “urging energy” helps us along the way. Quite interestingly, I find all planets are traveling through zodiac signs that are more about We and They as Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces stream light from the arcing of planets through their corridors.

Saturn in Libra helps contain relationships with honor of boundaries, maintaining long term relationships, and encouraging respect for each other.

Venus in Scorpio ads the loving, nurturing, sensual emergence of sharing with another. Sharing of each others deepest thoughts and feelings will be paramount.

The Sun, Moon and Mars continue to jaunt through Sagittarius (although the moon will very soon move into Capricorn). Benevolence is most certainly a key word. Living benevolently with all around you is a desire and a heart-felt action. Passionately desiring to see many individuals be comfortable, loved, and cared for surges through us all. Most certainly giving to the poor, the homeless, and those in need are stirred.

Pluto and Mercury are hip-to-hip today in Capricorn. Ideas that can move a nation to a greater commitment to the whole are being activated. A call to attention to what is in the best interest of all is being explored, and we can see that in our own nation.

Neptune and Chiron continue their journey (hip-to-hip) through Aquarius. Sensitivity to a higher intent is continuing. The desire to heal all wounds through the passage of the Transpersonal spiritually based reality is capturing the inner knowing of everyone.

Jupiter and Uranus in Pisces continue the same theme as Neptune and Chiron. Uranus is still at a standstill position and having been in the depth of the Ocean of consciousness (Pisces), it is ready to bring new and brilliant ideals to the forefront. Jupiter will help expand the wisdom of the sacred mysteries…again revealing, the mysteries are to no long be mysteries…the long awaited truth of sacred knowledge will emerge through all religions, belief systems and individuals.

Love and generosity is the key of these planetary patterns. May you feel them, blend with them and be Love and Generosity.

AWEN and Blessings!

New Moon – Elder

Sunday, December 5th, 2010

We are feeling some of the effects of Elder Moon already. The Sun is reflecting the power of Sagittarius and thus taming some of the Reed Vibration. New Moon is December 5th at 9:35:42 a.m. PST. The Sun and Moon will be at 13 degrees 28 minutes of Sagittarius. They will be heading toward Mars, already traveling through Sagittarius. All will be urging the spirit of adventure, the blessings of benevolent attitudes, and the grace of a higher urgency to know and live as the Divine. I will, of course, have a message about the New Moon Cosmic alignment on the News page of www.facesofwomanspirit.com. Also of great interest will be the Full Moon for it is a time of a total lunar eclipse as well. And, by the way, Mercury will go into a retrograde motion by December 10, and be pulled out of Capricorn and back into Sagittarius energy. We are already feeling the jostling of Mercury turning retrograde. A time to “enter” the sacred places within.

A delightful occurrence happens this year. We celebrate the whole lunar cycle through Elder. We usually create a break between Elder and Birch at Full Moon. That is not necessary this year. We have a gracious opportunity to flow from New Moon to Balsamic Moon with Elder. Enjoy Her Sacred gifts all month long. Feel the gifts of ebb and flow, silence and inner reflection of higher wisdom, and love at unconditional levels. Feel the union with Source within you.

The Full Moon occurs on December 21, Winter Solstice. Please be sure to check the website for the Ritual of Winter Solstice.

http://facesofwomanspirit.com/pdf/Winter%20solstice%202010.pdf

Below are three areas that are gifts of consciousness we will connect with through the cycle of Elder Moon Mother. As you go through the lunar month with Elder, notice how these three qualities are revealed in your life:

Guardians

During the Time of Elder we also give honor to the Angelic Guardians that help us every day. This is their month to be honored. We know the “sing on high” and celebrate the life of each birth from the womb of the Great Mother. They follow the souls and always seek to help, particularly when asked (for otherwise, they must wait patiently as we go on our merry way).

Each person was born with an Angel walking beside them. Do you know your angel? If so, do give him/her honor. If not, simply make an acknowledgment with or without a name and give honor for the gift of support through the Angelic realm. For in the truth of all existence, there is a guardian watching out for you, helping you and working to guide you along your pathway.

Notice how the Angels are helping you, guiding you, directing you all lunar month (and beyond). Do note what you notice.

Giving

This is most certainly a time of giving. We all know that Christmas will occur during the time of Elder. Gift giving and extending a helping hand in many ways (money, food, clothing, and other gifts) occurs. This is a special time to share the wisdom of giving, the heart of giving, and the truth of giving without expectation.

There are several ways we give. Each quality of giving reveals our intentions and also notes the vibration of love released (or not) in the moment of the gift. The first three states of giving reveals giving with the True Heart. The last three represent conditional giving and not truly from the heart.

Heart Giving:

1) Giving with Love and no expectation of returns

This is the gift that is from a full heart and a desire to simply make another happy, help another on the path of life, or to give honor to the spiritual gift provided all year long ( from a teacher, a church philosophy, a human guardian, family or friend).

2) One who simply gives without any recognition, no identity given

This is a person who simply gives from their full heart and has no need for attention, accolades, or recognition.

3) The person who gives without being asked

This person is alert to the needs of those around them: person, group, school or church. Simply giving because they can see the need.

Giving from Obligation or Attention

4) The person that gives what perhaps they believe they should, but only as they are asked.

This is a person who truly does not want to give, but will do so under pressure or obligation of family or group. Guilt has taken over. He/she wants to be noticed.

5) The person who appears to give graciously, but most certainly less than would be helpful.

This person also wants to “look good” to a group or to friends and family. He/She wants attention or accolades for gift given.

6) The person who gives, but with regret.

This person is similar to the 5th person. Giving is done so he/she can look good, but really does not want to give…obligation has set in and giving becomes necessary so one can look good to family or group. Usually this gift is to someone or something they truly dislike.

As you present gifts, which level do you come from. Of course, we all want to be in the top three. But do notice when giving is not from the heart of gracious sharing, but from the attitude of obligation, guilt, or the need to gain recognition. When giving from the lessor level, it is truly best not to give at all…that is truly not a gift. When giving from the first three levels, enjoy, for what you put out you do get back in the greater amount of love (even if you are a secret giver).

Sacred Silence

This third level of Elder is Her precious gift of awareness. The time of total silence is called for during Elder’s lunar cycle. Why? Because it places us in a total point of Peace, the graciousness of harmony, the expression of Love.

How does one come into a total point of Silence? Ah, this is also a precious gift…this one from you to Source Consciousness. In this total point of Silence, you quite your physical reality. You sit…you don’t walk around the house, outside, or in any way keep physically busy. You bring your body to a still point. Mentally you silence your mind. You calm the mind and allow it to slip into the ethereal reality of blending with a Higher state of awareness. As the mind wants to ramble, you let the thoughts flow through, but don’t follow them. You let them go until no-thought exists. Emotionally, you calm all feelings. Again, you don’t stir the emotions with thoughts, you calm the emotions with peaceful feelings and then no-feeling. You come to Emotional Stillness. Ego stillness is obviously required. Remember, the Ego is looking for attention, wants the accolades that say “your doing good” and so needs recognition that it cannot stand still. However, when you calm the Ego state of your consciousness, you Let Go and Let Goddess do Her Work. And, what about calming the Soul? Oh, yes, that urgent need moving through you to act on your Purpose, that is the sound of your Soul. Let it go still as well. Empty. Be the open and clear vessel that is ready to Receive the Blessings of Spirit.

When you can become totally silent, you are very receptive to the True Inner Voice—The Voice of Source Consciousness. When you become totally silent, you are receptive to True Healing. The healing of Mind, Body, Emotions, Ego and Soul occurs. Blessings occur. Insights of a higher nature a more diligent direction occurs that will lead you to true fulfillment. Guidance of your Higher Nature and Higher Life Design occurs.

How do you become truly silent? Turn off radios, CDs, and come into a place where there are no voices in the background, and no activity around you. As noted above, still your mind, emotions and physical body. Sit in a meditative state, releasing your personal mind and subconscious mind to your Source Consciousness.

How long to remain in silence? Ah, that depends on you. If you followed the old Celtic way, you would use the closing of the Winter Solstice ceremony and enter into Silence and remain their until December 25th. As I always say, this is likely not easy for our Western state of being. We are very active with family, friends, co-workers, etc. So, what next? Can you give a whole day of Silence? Then do so. Too much? Ah, how about at least one full hour? What are you willing to give to the Divine Presence? Remember, you are Giving Silence…will it be the state of True Giving or Lessor Giving. That truly is up to you. May it be a blessing that you give to Source and may you receive the Greater Blessing in return.

A Potential Gift of Sacred Silence is Mystical Union with the Divine.

I wish you all great moments of Silence, joyful moments of Light on Winter Solstice, and a wonderful holiday Season of Hanukkah (December 1 – 9), Christmas (December 24/25), and Kwanza (December 26 – January 1). May all celebrations be with the Heart of Love for All.

As you continue to journey through the dark time of the year, you also begin to enter the Light, signified by Winter Solstice. The fallow quality of your Soul- Soil is quietly resting and prepared to receive the Light of the New Dawn, the gifts of experiences to be known in the new year. When Birch approaches, you will plant seeds. Until then, let the sacred silence be the till of your soul-soil and bless the soil with love of the Divine. Let that love fertilize the soul-soil.: Intent, healing, spiritual, regal, deep silence, mystical. It is the color of Advent (the preparation of the birth of or the coming of Christ; or the Celtic sacred awareness of the coming of New Light). The prominent color on the Face of Elder is Deep Purple. It calls your consciousness to move into Spiritual Alignment. Sacred Intentions are stirred in your inner self through this vibrational ray of color. You may feel the regal alignment with Sacred Truth, Spiritual Oneness, and Awareness of the Light of All.

Mars over the Galactic Center!

Thursday, December 2nd, 2010

Through Tropical Astrology it can be seen that Mars is at 26 Degrees 9 minutes in Sagittarius….right on top of the Galactic Center. What does that mean to any of us? Could be a blessings, could be a fireball of activity, could be a control issue shared by many.

Most certainly, many see the Galactic Center is the doorway to Higher Consciousness and to the Mind of the Divine. I like that theory…especially with so much being felt as we make major transformations from responding to the Galactic World Changes of Divine Intention.

Mars in Sagittarus can bring us many feelings, actions and attitudes. It pushes the seaker to follow their quest. I inspires leaders to bring benevolence through their wisdom messages. It encourages adventure and exploration of higher education. It can push attitudes of the “warrior,” the “fighter within” and the means to fight for peace. We pray that it is the spiritual warrior, and the fight within is to remove ourselves from the unconscious wounds. The Spiritual Warrior is a call to seek peace rather than battles and the prayer is that Over this Galactic Center, that is what ensues.

Mars is most certainly triggering Neptune and Chiron in Aquarius (bot at 26 dgree points). It is in a flow of opportunities and as Neptune in Aquarius wants to bring out Sacred Truth, and Chiron wants to bring out true healing, then Mars kicking up the pace will help this occur. No More Secrets is the name of this game.

Mars is in a challenge point with Uranus at 26 degrees in Pices (and in retrograde), a continued movement of bringing out truth from the secret tombs of humanities history. Jupiter sits right beside Uranas at 23 degrees, and thus is being sparked as well. Jupiter will continue to ask for the sacred and benevolent attitudes to be carried out while secrets are revealed.

This theme of NO MORE SECRETS most certainly has been prompting humanity for several years now. We are in the Age of Aquarius and the Light of Wisdom is called for (not the secret schools of hidden realities). It is time for humanity to lift their attitudes to caring and sharing and the heavenly vibrations of stars and planets encourage this excursion from our inner psyche.

More and more individuals seek truth in politics, the workplace, and of course the Spiritual Temples of Wisdom. May you continue to seek and assist others to discover the Higher Truth….it is within.

We have another day or two to feel the effects of Mars! May there be a creative blessing from within yourself to stir the mystical guardian to step forward.

AWEN!
