Overly concerned of being hurt”
What? We are ready to end another lunar cycle and so close to the end of Summer? Oh, my, the year is rushing its way through our lives. However, there is still time to play and the gift of the New Moon is the playful energy of Leo as the Sun and the Moon ride hip-to-hip at 21 degrees, 23 minutes within the zodiac sign of Leo.
Venus is also in Leo, yet in her retrograde position. So close to the Sun, she is hidden in its light. Yet she will call you to be aware of your playfulness, creative urges, and power of relating to another with love of self and the other. She will help you explore deep feelings of your inner truth and desires for light in any and all relationships. She, along with the Moon and Sun are sitting opposite of Earth, observing the activities that are to occur all month as you manifest your highest consciousness, inner moods and wisdom, and live masterfully with the resourcefulness that guides you from the shadows to the light.
The Sabian Message of the Duo of the Moon and Sun provide this message: “A Carrier Pigeon.” Oh my, the gift of a messenger, as birds are so often noted in mystical wisdom. And the carrier pigeon always knows how to fly back home where rest, play and awareness shares the wisdom of the day. Look for the most important information being provided to you. Feel in your inner knowing and respond to it consciously from your higher mind. Take in the message and take it home (your inner self) where you may use this message effectively.
In the power of this new moon is another sacred gift that we can note as we recognize that Jupiter has just begun a year-long trek through Virgo. Jupiter is the giver of the abundance of the Universe while Virgo stirs within us the place to put that abundance to work. But, there is more. For Virgo is also associated with the Hebrew Letter of Yod, the Open Hand of God/Goddess, while Jupiter is associated with the Hebrew Letter of Kaph, the Grasping Hand. Placing the two together gives us another theme to follow: To know that the Divine Hand is reaching out to give us all we need and we have the power to grasp that hand and take the gifts into our world. The Universal Law associated with Yod is the Law of Wholeness and the Universal Law associated with Kaph is the Law of Contraction and Expansion. This reminds us to contract our hand around the Divine hand of wholeness/everything, then expand our hand and openly put the gifts into action in our daily lives. By 12:47 a.m. on August 15, the Moon will move into Virgo and the beauty of the Moon is the gift of the Universal Law of Wisdom….providing us the inner wisdom to know exactly how to use the gifts.
Jupiter’s last travel through Virgo was in 2003. What were you trying to grasp then? What was your job and service to humanity revealing at that time? What were you trying to perfect and did you use the Jupiter power to expand the grace of the universe into your world or contract into concerns and fears that you weren’t ready. Perhaps this cycle will give you the inner knowing that all is in it rightful place right now. Be blessed by the gifts of generosity, jovialness and the ability to gamble on your life quest (blessings of Jupiter).
Mercury is also traveling through Virgo, allowing you to focus your mind on what you are creating and bring your talents into a manifest reality. You may not be the perfection of it all, but that is only our human illusion. The Divine is ready to express through you where you are and help you develop further by the actions of mind, body and spirit put into action. Particularly when your expressions are aligned with humanitarian attitudes, actions and service.
Saturn is still slowly finishing its timeline in Scorpio…we are working on realizing what substructure we have created in the inner shadows of our mental/emotional realities. Yet, the power of the wisdom is how to create and recreate our substructure so that we can follow our true goals to manifest in our world in the most successful way intended by our soul. Be sure to read the New Moon Letter, also found on this page.
Pluto is in retrograde in Capricorn and calling for a review of all of humanity. Have we chosen well how to put our world governments into a more positive role? Have we reviewed our worldly actions and subtle subconscious reactions so we may guide us all to a new structure and peak of power that is partnered with true justice, new laws that provide harmony amongst all people, and the gift of assisting all to achieve the goals and ideals imprinted in each soul?
Also in this retrograde season is Neptune and Chiron in Pisces, as well as Uranus in Aries. Slow down, these retrogrades caution. Slow down so you may observe your humanitarian reality or illusion, the old wounds carrying on when they are no longer needed, and reactive forces creating unexpected chaos. Slow down, observe and change…for the gift of change is compassion, healing, and new ideals being lived through the creative processes of all individuals.
Mars is in the fresh pathway of Leo and is ready to play, create, and urge us on to think in the higher ways of our self by remembering we Are the I AM embodied and we must take self dominion to live the knowing of this inner power.
May the gift of the new moon plant many seeds of awareness that will grow all month and become the fruit of your labors throughout this new lunar cycle.

New Moon – July 14, 2015
7:53:21 a.m. Pacific Standard Time
We will be easing into the New Moon on the 14th, and as we have been following all year long, the Moon and Sun are finishing their jaunt through Holly (Leo), at 21 degrees 30 minutes. Yet, we are heading into the realm of Hazel/Grapevine union. That will occur at 12:47 a.m. on August 15th. The Moon will make it’s jaunt into Virgo (Hazel/Grapevine) and we will be working with a very blessed time. First of all, consider the Hand of God/Goddess reaching out to you! Hazel/Grapevine are aligned with the wonders if the Hebrew Letter of Yod (The Open Hand of God/Goddess). This is a time that we can be alert and reach for that hand. In fact, when you read of the Cosmic Alignments, you will see how very effective that field of energy is working with us at this new moon time.
As we did in the time of Birch, we make note that this isn’t simply a Trio of Earth, but the mere fact that Hazel and Grapevine have an inter-connective Weave of the Divine Feminine, we note four qualities of consciousness at work here: Hazel, Grapevine, Birch and Willow. Be there the Glory of the Divine Sacred Work—-the power to Manifest; the fulfillment of the Desire and Divine Plan of God/Goddess. With the Open Hand of the Divine, we have nothing to do but reach for our harvest and let abundance fill our day. How might we do that?
The Eighth Lunar action of 2015 – Initiated in Hazel/Grapevine- The Cognitive State – Woven in Faith, Expressing in Abundance with Active Partners – Mercrianna and Venus
Hazel stirs the power of faith and calls on our mental capacity to continue to see the vision of our desires with our mind in our heart and our heart in our mind. We know from that state that we can see the finish of projects, the harvest of what we have reap, and the power of our lead turned to gold. Our lead has been the challenges and burdens we have walked throughout this year as we cultivated our intentions. Our gold is the reward of the power of Cause and Effect that we have reaped. And as we have held a focus this year for Living our True Calling, each of us are likely seeing the results of that reality.
As I alluded to above, both Hazel and Grapevine capture, are part of, and releases the energy of the sacred field of Yod/h (The Open Hand of God/Goddess; also known as the Finger of Fate), Within this field the Law of Wholeness is expressed. This leaves us knowing that All Is, All is Good, and All is Divinely Given. We have nothing to fear, doubt, or betray. We simply need to take a hold of The Hand, and be guided.
Within Grapevine is a second reality. For Grapevine not only flows in the field of Virgo, it cycles into Libra and in that reality releases the Hebrew Letter of Lamed/ k, the Law of Cause and Effect (Karma), and the wisdom to take what we reap, let go of what is completed and begin setting in the deep field of tomorrow, the ideals, deep desires and creative substances in the seeds of New Beginnings. Lamed means Ox Goad, which presents us with the reality that we must contain the power of Cause and Effect, but learning what our thoughts and emotions create. Turn any thought and emotion around that creates the negative effects of loss, grief, and unworthiness. Honor what has occurred, but move into the action of new beginnings, honoring what we grieve and move forward, and live as worthy beings in the Light of the Divine expression we are (Holly’s energy was a great teacher of this reality). Lamed means to be instructed and too instruct. When we allow our life to instruct us as to the power of cause and effect, we can instruct our mind and emotions to move in more powerful directions of Peace, Love and Harmony, Creativity, True Expression, and the Power to Manifest, and live in Honor, Respect and Fulfillment for the betterment of All.
The Partners working with Hazel and Grapevine create the action of their foundation. Mercrianna activates the mental quality and within the field of Virgo, the stirring of well defined focus toward a perfect outcome occurs. It calls forward the mental ability to use the Divine Mind to visualize, the thought-forms to construct that which is to be manifest, and the power to communicate that construction. With the Power of Venus, the gift of creative imagination takes form with the caring and nurturing qualities that stir our worthiness, help us conquer our inner desires by using right resources, and thus drawing to us the magnetic field that takes the construct and places it into the manifest world. Venus the Heart, works with Mercury, the Mind and together
Thought and Emotion can become Congruent. The Power of the initiators of the T.E.A.M. are at work (Thoughts, Emotions, Action, Manifestation). Reminder: Thoughts and Emotions must be congruent in order for our Actions to activate a true Manifest.
Subconscious Level – Birch, with her partner Saturnea – Living the Dream Expressed by Inner Substructure.
Now Birch is working within our Subconscious Level. This is most certainly a cauldron level within us. It is here that we mix our thoughts and emotions together with all we have woven in our life time (and perhaps other lifetimes). If we are diligent, we are constantly reviewing this point of power within us. We have released the contents of the cauldron and renewed it, particularly at this time of the year when we are celebrating what has emerged from the reaping we have done. With Birch, we can be in new spaces of dreaming new dreams as well as visualizing new realities that are to become manifested in our physical realm of activity. Saturnea, the structural power, will help us build upon the dream, set the boundaries necessary to capture the Universal Energy, and put it all to work in our inner most powerful self….the Cauldron of Creative Power—our Subconscious. Saturnea, with the great structure of dedication, determination, discipline and devotion, will help us stay on target with our automatic mind keeping our body healthy, our mind alert, our emotions fashioned on creating, and our spirit ready to release the Divine Plan of our True Self. Together these elements of the Divine Feminine will guide us through All Dimensions to gather what we need, and lead us through the Universality of each aspect so we may know that the True Calling within us is fully established, Already Is, and must be Manifest according to the Good Work and Absolute Desire of the Holy Spirit. Grasp that Hand and Create the Blessed Outcome ready for you to fully experience.
Super Consciousness – Willow and companions Earth and Venus – Cultivating the Soul Voice Activated in Matter.
Willow now takes on the sacred position of the Super Consciousness, our Most High Place within us. The place of our True Master within. Willow becomes the guiding light that reminds us we are Masters and that we can continue to cultivate our soul voice that leads us further into the development of our True Calling. Willow teaches of the magick within us that knows how to use the sacred cauldron of our subconscious and how to bring the magick into our cognitive level. Willow continues to reveal to us how we are one with the Universe and thus how to use the mysterious wisdom of the Divine Feminine to dream-weave and structure the desires so they may become a living quality in the realm of matter. Earth is the birthing place and thus the activator of All manifests as well as the supporter of the place of experiencing and expressing the manifest in our human designs for living. Venus continues the flow of creative urges, visions and the ability to nurture, use right resources, and become interactive with all living creatures so the manifest can be the ultimate harvest of our dreams, desires and True Calling. Our Super Consciousness is at work sending the Light of creative powers, mastery, and cultivation of our soul intentions.
What have you discovered in the power of this Gift of the Earth Cycles? How will you remain aware of your three levels of consciousness interwoven with the Universal Consciousness of the Hazel/Grapevine lunar cycle?
The cosmic alignment of the new moon can be found on the blog page of www.spicawayoflight.com. Just open to that page with this url:
http://www.spicawayoflight.com/blog/?p=889. I am still having difficulty with my WomanSpirit website. Web Master is working on it now! Until all is in order, I will continue to use our SPICA site.
We do not have a Celtic Festival during this lunar cycle. However we are in the cycles of harvest. I hope your harvesting has been very fruitful and your manifestations the fulfillment of your soul designs.
