Full Moon – May 5, 2012

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

In the Month of May—-Mother’s Month, the full moon (the time of contractions and birthing) will occur at 8:35:04 pm PDT on May 5th.

The Moon and Earth are directly opposite the Sun and taking up the Light of Taurus (Willow) as the Sun’s Rays warm us. It is a power time when we align with the Full Moon. It is a time when we birth into our awareness the voice of our soul and the passion to live our soul purpose. Can you hear it? Are you ready to birth the message of your soul and cultivate its growth? Be the midwife, listen well, bring it forward and let it Cry Out, “I AM Present in the here and now!”

The cosmic power of the Grand Square (Grand Cross) that we have been following since before the new moon, still has a bit of a grip on us. It is losing its grip as Mars separates from the connections with the North and South Moon Node……however, it is going to catch up to a full opposition with Chiron by May 17/18, still connected to the North and South Moon Node…a weaker Grand Square, but still forming that view of Sacred Geometry.

The power of this Grand Square has been nudging, agitating and most certainly calling everyone to realize the gift of change, the wisdom of the cosmic power of change, and the movement beyond the old and outdated unconscious messages of how you are wrong or wronged; how you are good or bad; how you have performed to your potential or not, where you are worthy or not. It is time to Center in the Sacred Wisdom of knowing you are right where you are supposed to be and right in the greatest and most sacred power of enabling your True Self to emerge with the knowing of lessons you have learned, wisdom you have gained, and self awareness that allows you to make choices that confirm your reality is important.

When the full on opposition of Mars and Chiron occurs, you can discover the purity of yourself and the legacy of being your Own Shaman, your Own Shape-shifter and live with confidence and the courage to create your life from your soul urges. Or… can make the choice to crash into the wounds, dip into the darkness of incapabilities you believe you have, and continue to cultivate your life from the negative beliefs. What you believe you create in the manifest reality of your existence. Check out your beliefs…your constant thoughts, your emotional reactions…what are they creating?

However, take the spiritual path and allow the Moon in Scorpio (Reed) help you dip into and beyond the shadow and right to the Light of your Soul/Higher Self. You will discover what you can cultivate in the Light of the Sun (Higher Power) in Taurus (Willow) and release the power of your higher intent to foster the growth in new ways, and with new mental and emotional tools. With Jupiter beside the Sun, expand your abilities, use your soul resources, and create in your garden of life the persistence to search for truth, live the truth, be loyal to your higher nature, and keep your knowing that the Holy Spirit is guiding you over the troubled waters of any emotional upheaval within you or around you.

With the Sun in Taurus, you are working with the Earth, solid ground….the Earth within you, the solid foundation of your Soul Manifesting in your personal world of reality. You can take up the Torch of Light and create your higher desires; or continue to take up the sword of battle and exacerbate the challenges as you use your fears of unworthiness, loss and lack.

Always, we are at choice, for sure. But the more we take on the Glow of our Sacred Light, the more the shields of the Fighting Wills dissipate and do release into peace. The choice will be a constant expression. The more we move into the power of recognition that we are the Life Changers, the Keepers of the Sacred, the Wisdom Builders of the Human Field of Intelligence, the more we can create the dynamics of Earth as a cozy place to live, explore creative powers of mind-heart and matter. We cultivate and live the choose of empowerment. Our only challenge will be how we create the next inspiration into the world of matter (versus thinking we can’t). Live the Power of the Sacred Light and choice takes on a whole new meaning…not just right or wrong, worthy or unworthy. The Powerful light will be the choice of taking up the next opportunity and cultivating it with creative and joyful success.

Are you a crusader of the Sacred Wisdom? Are you a crusader of humanity living in Light, being the Light and exploring the magnificence of Creative Power? Bet you are or you wouldn’t be reading this blog. As such, then crusade by you living what you think you desire to be seen in others. Be the crusader of your inner self and use the Cultivating Light of this Full Moon to birth your intentions as a Mother Birthing a Sacred Child and let your Inner Crusade grow to the Master of your Self. Then, and only then, reflect that light to the world…for only then will you see the world reflect what you desire back to you. Teach from your Master Heart. Feel, from this sacred place the Love for Life, for All and for the Growth of Consciousness that fills our human field with De-Light in being a common community, worldwide, living in the Grace of Oneness.

There is a secret in living this way….it is the fulfillment of abundant desires….ponder this reality.

Full Moon – April 6 – Good Friday

Thursday, April 5th, 2012

Full Moon Energy:

 As your read about the Full Moon Energy, do get to the end of this article to honor the time of Good Friday and Easter.

Remember the book, Men are From Mars Women are From Venus? Taught us how we might look at relationships and communication. Well, we are under the stressor of these arching planets as Venus is squaring Mars and they are part of a Grand Cross (Also known as a Grand Square). Personally, this may create a difficult time in relationships as you and your significant other may not be on the same page, may not be feeling the same reality, may not be focused on the same desire… what does that mean? One of you may burst out (Mars) while the other tries to make peace (Venus)….but neither approach will seem to work.

Venus is side-by-side the South Moon Node in Gemini. The power within a relationship with this conjunction is that the Venus quality is remembering how to use her voice to express feelings. Unfortunately, sidling with the South Moon Node, the expression is from what is already known, what will be from the past, and what may be centered on ideals, but might be wishful thinking as Venus and the South Moon Node connect in a challenging square with the Wounded Healer Chiron and Neptune (who are in slippery Pisces). Mars, retrograde in Virgo is trying to dig out of the shadows it has been visiting as it is about to finish the retrograde and head direct on April 14th. However, if the clearing out has erupted old emotions (Mars is opposing the Chiron/Neptune partnership), then the agitation from within may cause Mars to feel like he hasn’t done a “good enough” job (Virgo) to achieve the higher ideals. And, Mars is squaring the North Moon Node in Sagittarius and may be worrying that reaching for lofty goals has no foundation to be expressed. Now, along side all of that, we are in a Full Moon Energy field……

 Full Moon occurs on Apr 6th at 12:18:39 pm PDT. The Sun will be nearly directly overhead blazing its light in Fiery Aries. The Moon will be in Libra under the horizon sidling with Earth Energy and getting hooked with Saturn in Libra as well. OMGosh…..This relationship energy may strengthen the challenges and truly call for a higher order of attention to get beyond the agitations. Aries always likes to be independent, go for what they want, strike out on their own, pioneer a new way; shall I go on? …. Libra on the other hand, wants to be with a partner, give in to choice (often the other’s choice–not happy making) and with the Moon vibrating in Libra, wants to feel the love of the partner, know the deep feelings are being shared, and wants to makes sure (with the conjoining energy of Earth) that the sensual purpose of the union is being met.

 Opposition, Squaring-off, struggling with “old stuff,” and moving past illusionary realities

will be hitting home to many people. However, as you all know, I always share that oppositions and squares do not have to be played out as overt negativity. On the contrary, it is a time that allows you to truly look at what is happening. Are you communicating well with another? Are you lost in your own “stuff?” Are you blaming another? Are you still a “walking wounded?” Are you still lost in the dream and not the reality of life? Your partner is a soul-partner helping reflect what you need to listen to within yourself to move toward your higher goals (and trust me, you are doing the same for your partner). There is no blame, no shame, no argument to be had. Use the vibrations available to call you to check your own self, move beyond the old and outdated ways of relating, and facing life experiences (you may only be relating to your world, career process, creative drives and desires you feel are not being rightfully utilized…and it has nothing to do with a personal relationship). Find the way to your Sacred Shape-Shifter (Chiron) so you may reverse (Neptune) any process that limits your Higher Will to be fully activated in your personal reality.


Here are other “Lights of the Cosmos” that are effecting this Full Moon Energy; they are fixed stars that the moving planets are arching energy to and releasing vibrations within consciousness. The Moon, Earth, Sun, Mercury (who is most certainly out of retrograde but also trying to get back to the alignment it was in before its dip), and Venus, are all hitting the vibration of Mirfak…which is a Fixed star that is Challenge Oriented (can you really talk with clarity or are you talking with a tone that challenges others?).


Oh, as if Mirfak was not enough, Menkar, which activates the Victim of the Unconscious, is being agitated by Mars and Jupiter. So, if you feel “affronted,” and releasing old wound memories, you will take on the “poor me” attitude and believe your partner, boss, or someone or something is standing in the way of your happiness.


There is a way out of the challenge, and that will come from the arching vibration that Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune have to the one of the more positive and brilliant lights, SPICA, who releases the “Potential for Brilliance.” In fact, it will release the Holy Mother’s Light encouraging you to let go of old structures in relationships with love and peace (Saturn Rx in Libra), while calling you to look for new ways to be independent and yet inclusive with others (Uranus in Aries), and find the Sacred Union with your Higher Power (Neptune in Pisces).


Well, I do know that we are experiencing the Full Moon during our Christian sacred time of Good Friday, and will feel its effects through Easter. I’m guided to speak of this in a way that I heard as a message was given to a client of mine this week. As a Mother she struggled with care- taking or enabling her son. Of course, we are all aware that enabling a person can mean that we don’t allow them the passage of their life as they need for their soul journey….we try to make things happen for them to make sure they are “alright, healthy, happy and successful.” Our perceptions (or illusions) are that it is our job as Mothers or Fathers, Siblings, or Friends. But out of the ethers came a message that jolted my psyche to remember that we must trust the Higher Power within our children (or others in our life):


Mary, Mother of Jesus, did not stop the journey of Her Son. She did not stop his persecution and being nailed to a cross. She knew his journey was to be a challenge and a reward and an opening to higher consciousness, a call to humanity to seek to live with compassion and love for each other and ultimately hear the words of Her son, “I and the Father are One. Who I Am, You Are [We are One]. If Mary would have stopped her son from his soul intention, we would not have the story of love and the wisdom of a Great Healer to learn from.


Pisces has been given the title as the “Age of Christ,” and as you have read this post you have read about Chiron and Neptune in Pisces and are part of the GRAND CROSS. Now if you take the message of the “cross,” then you know the Grand Feature is to let go of the old wounds (Chiron) and the challenging illusions (Neptune) that keep you nailed to Self Inflicted Negativity (S.I.N.). In fact, in this New Age, New World, the Cross simply calls you to Balance Reality. Christ has said, “Wear the Cross as a symbol of Balance. Wear it as the Symbol of your Inner Qualities aligned with your Outer Qualities and Nothing blocks your Sacred Living.”


Chiron is no longer pointing the finger to the Wounds, but to the humbleness of the Great Healer and Shape-Shifter. Neptune no longer has to fight rigid rules (particularly of religions) as it moves fluidly through its own sign, Pisces. Neptune stirs the Inner Sanctuary with the knowing of the Greater Truth–Oneness, Bringing Sacredness into daily consciousness with the compassion of Divine Love radiating through you and to everything you do and everyone you encounter. Be a Walking Prayer, a Living Meditation, the Sacred Being you Truly are. This is the Light of Easter–the Revealing of the Higher Self, the Birthing of your New Relationship with your Sacred Beingness.


May you find many blessings over this Holy Weekend.

Full Moon – March 8th 2012

Wednesday, March 7th, 2012

At 1:39:27 a.m. PST we enter the Full Moon stage. The Sun will be at 18 degrees 13 min of Pisces and the Moon, of course, will be at 18 degrees 13 min of Virgo (as is the alignment of Earth). Mars, in retrograde is at 11 degrees 51 minutes, so very close to the Moon and Earth.

From Sacred Geometry we also have a Grand Trine (Grace of the Holy Trinity) forming with Mars in Virgo, Jupiter in Taurus and Pluto in Capricorn. Jupiter and Pluto form a sextile to Chiron at that point, thus creating a Kite configuration with the Grand Trine. We have a Grand Cross configuration (Great Challenges that Motivates the Awakening) that is created by the arching lights of the what is considered minor fields of energy, yet major movers of the inner consciousness…..ah, what can all this mean?

 In the Power of the Sun and Moon I will discuss the beauty of the Sabian Symbol messages and what is stirred within us. The moon provides us with the messages: “A swimming race,” while the Sun indicates “A master instructing his pupil.” Well those phrases mean a lot immediately. Are we in a race to gain the insights of the teacher within the Ocean of Consciousness? Is the Master within attempting to give us instruction while we keep the race going? Oh, yes, I imagine so. Are we flooded by the emotions as well as the chaotic mind attempting to move so fast that we forget to take a day at the SPA (Stop, Pause, Allow)?

 When we rest at the S.P.A., we allow the Master within to take charge and release the highly developed artistry of our Higher Mind. The challenge is to maneuver through the unconscious mines of the old testaments of living and enter the channel of Higher Wisdom always within at the deeper levels of our psyche. Dive deep into the waters of the Higher Mind and know you will be guided beyond the channels of illusion and delusion and into the wealth of wisdom, the gift of the sacred, and the honoring of the Greater Truth.

The beauty of Mars being in a retrograde dancing right alongside the Moon and the Earth is the opportunity to end the wars of the an analytical mind (Mars in Virgo), put the razor sharp judgements aside, and enter the flow of the sacred dormitory (Earth) that will assist you in understanding your true reason for existence. Give yourself a rest in the Earthly movement of nourishment, volumes of support when you allow yourself the inclusiveness of others to help, guide, or simply sit with you. Allow the lunar vibration to guide you into the inner wisdom of the rhythms of nature that direct your own ebb and flow, inaction or action, contemplation or reasoning alignment with your intuition intact.

Of course, you are being called within with Mars Retrograde and the Sun in a watery sign of Pisces. And, Mercury is positioning itself to move into retrograde position, thus also slowing the mental pandemonium and allowing a review, reflection and rejuvenation of your intentions.

The Grand Trine/Kite with Earth as the core and water at the helm of the kite, reminds us of several things. The Grace of the Holy Trinity is providing the Purification of the Earth (Mars in Virgo) to clear out the old in order for the benevolence (Jupiter) of the Divine to assist in helping us cultivate our resourceful natures once again (Jupiter in Taurus), while we continue to change the Governing Power of our lives (personal and world-wide) as is show by Pluto in Capricorn. Chiron in Pisces is the point of the Kite and reminding us that we are Shape-shifters allowing for the true healing of the world to occur in the Light of Sacred Wisdom and Spiritual intentions being fulfilled in new attitudes from the scriptures of the most ancient wisdom of Source encoded in our deeper Psyche-Consciousness.

Finally, the Grand Cross will give us just enough mental, emotional and spiritual edge to decide we can make the change. It too is lead by Mars in Virgo opposing Chiron in Pisces, and both of them squaring with the Nodes of the Moon (North Node in Sagittarius and South Node in Gemini). What will the inner agitation provide? Again, we will see that the Mars element will call forth the fire of purification through the gateway of our physical reality and analytical mind (Virgo), while activating the inner healer (Chiron) who will temper the fire by sacred releases of inner awareness, yet, reminding each individual that the goal is the Higher Awareness (Sagittarius) of purpose while using the wisdom already obtain (Gemini) to be open and communicate within our communities so we can all find the secret of benevolence (Sagittarius) in the service to the Whole.

Mercury is sitting very close to Uranus (both in Aries) and in its retrograde will ride right on top of it by March 14…there may be an inner explosion of wisdom that may jar you into the awakening of the I AM Presence (Aries).

Venus is riding alongside Jupiter and approaching the gifts of Jupiter that will call the resourcefulness into action in a loving and nurturing manner that can support the growth of the new garden of consciousness.

Saturn continues to ride the waves of retrograde realities in Libra… Still calling everyone to review relationships and discover how to bring them to the benevolent and loving intention of equilibrium that is always what everyone begs for. (Saturn opposes Venus). Saturn will complete its retrograde June 25th and enter Scorpio Oct 6th…finally leaving the field of Libra. It has been quite a journey of discovering the power within relationships within the last 2 years.

May the Full Moon empower you to honor the intentions of the Cosmic gifts!

Full Moon – Total Lunar Eclipse

Tuesday, June 14th, 2011

The longest and darkest lunar eclipse will occur June 15th at 1:13:34 pm Pacific Daylight time. Lasting for more than 100 minutes, this has not occurred since 2000. The total eclipse will be seen in Africa and Central Asia. South American, Western Africa and Europe will be able to see the moon eclipsed as the rise and fall occurs. When the setting process of this eclipse is happening then over Eastern Asia and Australia.

A lunar eclipse creates the distance between heart and mind that is not easily captured. The moon (emotions) is eclipsed as it darts behind Earth thus creating a block of the light from the Sun (consciousness).

As the full moon occurs tomorrow, the moon will be traveling through Sagittarius while the Sun will be in Gemini. The Universal Law of Sagittarius is The Law of Adaptation, while the Universal Law of Gemini is the Law of Union. Hmmm, just put those two together and we can see when there is a block occurring that it is not easy to adapt to a union. This is a time when looking into adapting and understanding what you need to adapt to is quite important. In this way, when the “light returns,” (a little over an hour and ½), you can make the right choice to form a union or not.

During the full moon – lunar eclipse time, do take some time out to contemplate what it is you are trying to form a union with (person, job, project, place, etc.). Take time to understand who you need to adapt and form a harmonious alchemy that can help you merge well together and open to the potential to truly express the higher levels of yourself and the other. Gemini (Hawthorn Lunar time) offers the power of Choices to be at the forefront of your consciousness, while Sagittarius (Elder) offers the power of Sacred Silence wherein the Higher Mind/Voice can be heard. Take your time, there is no need to rush into any decisions at this point.

Lunar eclipses do have the energy flow that calls for us to review for at least a month. So, timing is not about rushing. Inner reflection is the power to observe.

What hints are in the Sabian symbol message? The symbol activated by the Moon is “A chubby boy on a hobbyhorse,” while the Sun is “A man trimming palms.” This wave of energy provides a creative genius to emerge and a motif of: “Victory is in the palm of your hands, therefore, finesse, fineness and flourish will be the energies released.”

Remember, the power of the eclipse calls you inward to contemplate before making any choices. This power to go inward, search for the inner voice and reach your higher alchemical moment will provide you with the finesse to achieve the victory you desire. Your creative energy will flourish and the fineness of your heart and mind will emerge with the regalness to ride a horse to victory with the joy of your child-like innocense.

The Sun, Mercury and Venus are all in the Sign of Gemini. This will bring the wave of ideas, the desire to communicate about them and the ability to be resourceful with your words. Don’t fall asleep during the eclipse…keep your mind open and ready to communicate from the wisdom you can achieve from your inner self.

The Moon is aligned with the North Moon Node (Cosmic Rhythm of the Universe and soul push). Both of these energies in Sagittarius do bring about your inner ability to be generous, to know when to take the risk from the urging of your soul because you will be aligned with the highest rhythm of intent. You may be called to reach for a higher level of your spiritual truth, expand your education or your teaching of spiritual realities. You may desire to uncover the creative writing from within you that will explain your inner knowing. Go for it…never hesitate…the Moon is in a fire sign….the desire to be active….don’t let it sleep in the eclipse cycle, but don’t rush it, explore from the region of your inner higher self.


Friday, October 22nd, 2010

Full Moon occurs at 6:36:31 pm PDT. The Moon will be at 29 Degrees 32 Miniutes of Aries while the Sun will be at 29 Degrees 32 Minutes of Libra (yes the perfect opposition). What is more noticable is the 29 degree marker which is a criticially important point. This may bring greater tension and a greater awakening to any of your most intimate relationships.

Aries works with the power of Me, while Libra works with the Power of We. This creates a time of noticing what needs to be in balance with yourself inorder for the ability to relate in harmony, peace and a loving concern for another.

Key words of Aries are “I Am” and key words of Libra are “I Relate.” From a Sacred reality you can take this time of contemplation and realize how you relate to your Higher Self and your key words can be, “I relate to the I Am Presence within me.”

Soul activities are stirring within everyone…simply meaning that attempting to feel your soul urges, understand your purpose and diligently live a Soul Awakened life is moving you. This 29 degree moment makes it feel greatly important. And, the Sun is about to move into Scorpio, calling for the Soul Protector. Tomorrow The Sun, Mercury and Venus will all be in such an alignment and the deeper intentions will emerge. But first, do you have a relationship with your soul? Use the Full Moon to help you bring that to the forefront of living and find the joys, pleasure and wisdom in your life.

Uranus and Jupiter in Pisces, Chiron and Neptune in Aquarius, Venus in Scorpio, and the North and South Moon Nodes (soul messengers) are all in a retrograde reality. This offers you an easier state of consciousness (mind and emotions) to enter the sacred inner chambers and open the doorway of your soul. Walk in, sit for a while, learn and bring the wisdom out into your world.

A ceremony to help you with all relationships is available on page:


Love and Blessings,

Rev. Torres
