Happy New Moon – Alder Cycle

Tuesday, March 20th, 2018

Alder is a symbolic representation of the Divine Mysteries, telling us to do something. Rev. Katherine Bell shares a deeper understanding on these energies and how to benefit from their blessings.  Take a moment to watch this video.  Thank you for visiting our SPICA Way of Light website.

Cosmic Filters of Light – New Moon

Friday, November 25th, 2016

November 29, 2016 at 5:18:10 a.m., MST, heralds the New Moon. Trekking through Sagittarius, this lunar cycle sends forth a messenger of the year’s end, a sacred time, and a time of great awareness. It is a time of Alchemy as we stir the soul in sacred ways and allow silence to guide us toward our future. (Be sure to read of Elder Moon Mother).

The Sabian message tells us, “Rocks and things forming therein.” It is believed to be the gift of creative occurrences happening in the depth of our soul. This inner place is the space where diamonds and precious jewels are formed; formed so well they become solid, yet glimmering in the Sun Light. Yet, this inner forming can be something so solid in mass it may resist the pressures of change. But, the fire within causes the change to occur. That which cooks in the human psyche requires the alchemical pressure to change from one state to another, evolve and grow, expand and deliver the creative wisdom from the depths within the soul.

The Moon and Sun stand together at 7 degrees 42 minutes at the moment of the New Moon. They are in the first rays of Light of Sagittarius, and thus carry us through the journey of learning, understanding, and willingness to discover the diamond power of our Soul. They are the guiding lights of our own alchemy.

Supporting the Sun and Moon are Saturn and Mercury who have already been trekking the zodiac of Sagittarius. Mercury, having about 5 days to finish the journey, as the Sabian Message indicates, is “A flag bearer.” Mercury has willingly passed through the battle field of the warrior and reveals the challenges along th way. Mercury, the great messenger will give guidance, if you listen within.

Saturn will help you be stalwart as you initiate your journey. The Sabian message speaks of this quality, “Tiny children in sunbonnets.” This is a protection message…when the cooking light gets so hot it is difficult to bear, Saturn sets the pace of protection from the great heat of the Sun as it works with the Moon to create just the right heat to create the change and temper the beauty of what is formed and ready to be honored and utilized. Saturn will help keep one disciplined and on the right path of deliberate soul growth.

A Grand Cross will be formed at New Moon. One that is subtle and not generally discussed in Astrological Circles. The Sun and Moon initiate the Grand Cross of Fire Water Air and Earth. They first reach out and challenge this alchemical cauldron to the South and North Moon Nodes. The South Moon Node is at 7 degrees Pisces 56 minutes while the North Moon Node is 7 degrees Virgo. These two challenge the Earth in Gemini as the Sun/Moon oppose the Earth. This grand tension calls for the flames of change to create the temperance of cosmic rhythm that all soul (North/South Moon Nodes) may respond to compassion, service and growth world wide. It Calls for the Earth beings (Earth in Gemini) to talk with each other and see far reaching effects (Sagittarius) that can take our world to new levels beyond and yet within commonality, love for the higher good, and a devotion to better the plans of diversity of all nations. The challenge is strong on this New Moon Day.

Furthermore, a T-Square is formed in the sky as other planets join the call. Jupiter Initiates the T-Square arcing lights of opposition to Uranus in Aries (Rx), while both challenge Pluto in Capricorn with the constant picking to make a change. They ask if we will relate with a benevolent heart, honoring the diversity of others of our world, and use the platform of transmutation to govern ourselves in ways well beyond the limitations of believing that the individual is the only one to be taken care of on this grand Earth. We alone cannot be the only one that is generous to our self….we must be benevolent and generous to others., as long as they can receive it. (Yep, we do have to be careful of co-dependency…yet we must turn to the gift of interdependency in a knowing that we are co-authors of a new world.)

Mars in Aquarius arcs a Light of Grace in action to Jupiter in Libra, reminding us to stand tall in the great changes…stand tall with all others of the world. We are One in the Many, diversified in our essence, allowing the differences to open the door to magnificent creative power. We need form a joint venture to honor this reality.

Jupiter in Libra sends opportunistic messages to Saturn, as well as receives them from Mercury, the Sun, and the Moon. “Keep going, keep communicating, keep shining the essence of your higher self, keep feeling your soul…maintain a relationship with all so harmony can reign.”

Oh yes, there are picky challenges that will irrate us. Major challenges that, left unchecked, lead us into illusionary processes, denial and delusion being the challenges that awaken us from the deep sleep of separation. Listen, respond, and allow the challenges to awaken you to a higher intention to live for the Greater Good….a blessing of Sagittarius. Let your Inner Cauldron stir to awaken the Jewels of Light you are to present to the world as a helper of change through diversity and joy of living in a human community of creative beings.

 

Awaken!

Thursday, May 5th, 2016
As we near the renovating cycle of this New Moon (May 6th), we stand in the place of opportunity.  We also experience new opportunities, as we do when any new cycle occurs.   The New Moon is always a gift to remind us to take a stand and renovate:    bring ourselves into good repair.

The Celtic Lunar Cycle of this month is called, “Hawthorn.”  This vibration brings us the opportunity to reawaken our true knowing and the power of choices we have every moment.  In the quest for spiritual knowledge and alignment with our higher selves, we desire and seek to be awakened.  The awakening process has been occurring for many years.   But it is our choice to remain awake or not.

What does being “awakened” mean to us?  It means we are aware mentally, emotionally, physically and of course through our spiritual alignment, that we are able to redirect any state of our self that is out of balance.  In truth, we are awakened to the fact it is our own personal self/lower ego  that tangles us in the darkness of challenges, beliefs of being attacked by others, or lost in our fears of lack and unworthiness.  We believe we are incapable of changing our life, or we are stuck, just the way we are–lost in our repetitive beliefs and reactions.  It takes great inner strength and determination to change our life.

For some of us who have lived through physical, mental, and emotional abuses, life-threatening experiences, and deva- stating losses, may find the challenge to be even greater.  Yet, often I find those who have had these challenges take the greatest leap of faith to change their reality so they don’t have to live in the memory of fear and base their life on the memory.

WE ARE ALL GIVEN THE POWER TO AWAKEN!

The  moment of being awakened is the moment of initiating our personal sate of empowerment.  We realize we can master our personal life by being aware of the workings of our unconscious.  In the studies of mind-heart mastering, we seek to be the masters of our reality because we are awakened to a deep inner truth that we are capable of changing our life.  We are aware that our emotional and mental challenges are brought about through perceptions of the unconscious that hold challenging memories, beliefs that we are “less than,” and the false belief that we are lacking in some area of our essence.  In other words, we have no option to change.

The opportunity of being awakened is the gift of knowing we are “seekers” on the quest of our Higher Self, our True Value, our Christed Essence, our Master Self.  As we walk in the vibration of this lunar cycle, we are called to realize the choices we make that keep us “asleep”, drugged by false beliefs of our empowerment (or lack of it) and our power to be reactive to false perceptions.  Old and very tangled emotional reactions to life will only cause us to dive into judgment, criticizing self and others, and unable to find our strength to change our reality.  Yet, “Awakened,” we can chose to change the self-induced drug of illusion and living in the slumber of our unconscious mis-perceptions.  We can awaken to the choice of living our Higher Essence.

When we are “awake,” we do find our true self.  We pass through the levels of the tangled emotional shadows of discontent.  We transport our self into a higher realization that any challenge is an opportunity to exam our self and change our reality—-because we can.  Because in our Awakened state we find our Higher Wisdom, live in our Higher Self and create positive movement toward harmony.  We re-balance what has tilted us.  For we know what has been embedded in memory has created the outer realities that we experience.  We know that when we take charge to change the inner reality as well as awaken and release our higher qualities, we no longer repeat the reactions of the past believing they are responses to the moment.  We move in mind and emotions to the level of life that we are in charge of our emotional reactions, latent mental-emotional discord, and we chose to create a different reality.  In this state, we realize we have created the challenges and we can change them.

Awakened, we walk the Master level of ourselves, we walk in knowing we have the power to change our inner self to bring the positive experiences forward in our life.  We have the gift of awareness that we are the only one who masters our life and we are the only one who is in charge of reacting or responding.  Of course, we all know by now that responding is a healthy reality of living empowered; reacting is the slumber of unworthiness.

New Moon – May 20, 2012 – 4:47 pm Pacific Daylight Time – A Solar Annular Eclipse

Sunday, May 20th, 2012

 

 
We come into a beautiful Solar Eclipse on New Moon and it is also called a Ring of Fire as the moon centralizes itself between the Sun and Earth. On the West Coast, we will more likely be able to see this (but of course, don’t look directly at it…remember?) The moon will be at apogee (meaning farthest from earth) and thus does not appear to cover the whole Sun..leaving the Ring of Fire. This sight will stir inspirational feelings and create a wonderful sacred attunement for those who choose to align in such a fashion.
 
 
At New Moon, the Sun and Moon are hip-to-hip (or heart-to-heart) in Gemini. This will create a desire to communicate from your inner plane (the Moon) to your Higher Self (the Sun) and activate this wisdom into Matter (Sun/Moon opposite Earth). With the Earth and, Moon and Sun all squaring Neptune, a T-Square is formed, calling for the tension necessary to assist the purification noted below with Mars and Chiron. Let your intuition communicate from your higher plane of existence, channel that information through your personal mind and heart and allow the more positive expressions to come through that will direct your ability to use the gifts of ideas that support you and all of humanity in the plane of healing and creative endeavors.
 
 
The Grand Cross has left us by New Moon, but an opposition remains with tension ongoing between Mars in Virgo and Chiron in Neptune. They are in the tightest moments on the 17th and 18th’ but still affecting the ranges of consciousness within us at New Moon. The gift of this challenge is allowing a final purification and healing (Mars and Virgo) of the old wounds and secrets of the past (Chiron and Pisces). Shall you choose to take charge of your inner plane of unconscious challenges, you can move into healthy actions that provide you with the ways and means to shape-shift and take charge of the sacred compartments of your life, allowing them to flow through with Ancient Wisdom in a Modern Day reality! You can learn and live with the truth that you are the only person in charge of your reactions to your emotional self, healthy or unhealthy states of consciousness. This tension will reveal your willingness to make the changes that activate your power to lead your emotional and mental states into higher intentions that you desire to manifest.
 
 
Fortunately, at the New Moon, Mercury is in the well-grounded sign of Taurus and can continue to help you maintain a good mental focus and clarity. This can provide you with an ability to effectively use your power of resourcefulness to activate the voice of your soul and use the inner wisdom to consciously choose to Master your life and the processes of your life experiences (Taurus = Universal Law of Life Mastery; Mercury = Universal Law of Expression).
 
 
Jupiter continues its crossing through Taurus calling on humanity to seek to know the higher truth of Spirit in Matter and live the Opulence of Divine Presence. Jupiter is feeling little “digs” from Pluto in Capricorn, reminding Jupiter to make sure transmutations are occurring at the personal and global level in order to allow the more dynamic level of the soul(s) to emerge into action for higher achievements in life.
 
 
Uranus continues to be in a challenge with Pluto…seeking the Freedom to take off onto life goals, but, again, Pluto is asking, “Have you really made changes that allow you to live at the Transpersonal levels of consciousness or are you going to head out with an attitude that you are the only important factor and forget you are part of All and able to hear that from the depths of your soul?”
 
 
This year, we are most certainly being asked if we are getting a positive handle on the changes? Are we really taking in the truth of our Sacred state of Empowerment? Are will still hanging on to the victim stages of living (everyone else does the bad things…but we don’t; and they do the bad things to us….leaving us out of the mix of being responsible for our reality)? We are cultivators of a new reality….very important that we don’t hold on to the old realities of not being an empowered, loving and inclusive being. We are cultivating the new garden of life with many creative powers being released from the dynamic level of our Source Consciousness and Neptune in Pisces has been leading the way for a short-while now.
 
 
Venus is going to be completing a Transit started in 2008 and finishing in 2012 that only occurs every 200 years. Venus (though very small in our sight) crosses between the Earth and the Sun and we see a tiny dot eclipsing some of the Sun’s light. Those in the Northern Hemisphere can see it on June 5th. (Again, don’t look directly at the Sun). The transit will occur more at sunset for the Northern Hemisphere and then on June 6th the transit will occur at sunrise for the Southern Hemisphere.
 
 
Transits like Venus effect our DNA….what a gift. Like the Pearlized Soft Green rays of light, Venus will perpetuate the shape-shifting of our DNA. Venus will be in retrograde motion, thus calling us within to gain the wisdom of this changing time…..But there is more…..
 
 
We can see the transit of Venus in Gemini providing even more technologically creative processes advancing (what more will we see beyond iPads, smart phones, etc.?) our world of communication. In the retrograde, this may call for more techy people trying to “reverse engineer” the products that keep us in the field of bitsstreams looking for the binary formulas for new products.
 
Also, on a more personable vein with the Transit of Venus, look for writers to bring more of a gentle nudging toward nurturing and natural awareness to keep the body and mind in harmony. Look for ways and means to communicate about relating with others on a more heart-to-heart level rather than simple mind games. And, most certainly, this Venus power brings about more wisdom of the Feminine Side of the Divine..the Goddess…WomanSpirit. The Call to stay Awake in the Stream of the Feminine Consciousness will occur. It calls for women and men alike to honor the powers of nurturing, caring, loving, creating and streaming with the gifts of harmony so the new world can carry the Light Stream of Peace.
 
 
I’ll speak more of this alignment as we get closer to June 5th. However, the energy is already building and the Divine Design is already taking shape…
Here is New Moon info you may find useful.

New Moon – Cosmic Alignment

Wednesday, December 21st, 2011

December 24, 2011 we enter the flow of a Lunar Cycle. The Cycle of the Celtic Moon of Birch-Beth.

It is more than a lunar cycle. It is the Initiation of 2012 and our ability to recognize the power of the changing time of 2011 and cultivation of the Garden of 2012 is most important for our Global Growth of Higher Consciousness.

As we enter the region of Christmas Eve, and the Birth of a Christed Child, it is first a great idea to release the past year (if you have not already done that on Winter Solstice).

This is a time to make note of how you have:

1) Chosen to clear your subconscious of the Saboteur thinking and emoting

2) Chosen to let go of fears and phobias that do not serve your Higher Self

3) Chosen to leave the past behind

Now is a time to:

1) Chose to Reclaim your state of Empowerment

2) Chose to Recognize your Holy Self

3) Chose to Realize the Source in All

4) Chose to Master Life and Reveal your Mastery in All that you do

5) Create the new year with the Ideation of Source

This is a time to realize the Garden of Eden, as noted in the Bible has completed its Cycle. It no longer represents the Fallen, the Separation, the Sinners. It has gone fallow and the New Garden is now being cultivated. Source has already given to Its Matter Self the fertile soil of the new garden. IT has given the Essence of Renewal within the Garden of Oneness. The sparkling Rays of Light are providing New Waves of Consciousness in the Rays of SPIRIT, FIRE, AIR, WATER AND EARTH. The US of IT are called to cultivate the vibration and set the energy of Highest Intent into the New Garden/New Year.

So, what does the cosmic pattern of the New Moon offer as an aid of energy in our Garden?

The New Moon Cycle begins at 10:06:23 a.m. December 24th (Pacific Time). The Sun and Moon are at 2 degrees 34 minutes of Capricorn and form a perfect opposition to Earth which is moving through the constellation of Cancer (2 degrees 34 minutes). Together the Sun and Moon, as well as the Earth, arch a light to Uranus who is at the critical vibration of 0 degrees 43 minutes of Aires. This forms an active Earth, Water and Air T-Square….a strong tension calling all to awareness, pulling and pushing the buttons of consciousness within each individual; keeping us awake and alert to the New Moment and the Beginning!

What are we beginning? Each within knows for their self. The Earth is Beginning a Cycle of a New Garden of Consciousness and the power to achieve the cultivation of it is within our Intuitive Knowing (Cancer-Water) and our strength to pursue the peak of attainment of our Higher Purpose (Capricorn) is well grounded in Heart and our Higher Mind (Moon and Sun). A Player in the T-Square is Pluto in Capricorn waiting for the Union to occur with the Sun and Moon, and thus Earth. The Power to Transmute continues to reveal itself with Pluto in the mix.

Uranus holds a very important position in the T-Square. Its vibration at 0 degrees of Aries places poignant energy into action. Uranus carries the Law of Love while Aries carries the Law of Worldly Development. At the 0 degrees, Uranus supports this power of Love to activate the I AM vibration (Aries) into the world of Matter (Capricorn) and through the Foundation of Expression (Cancer). The Father (Capricorn) and the Mother (Cancer) maintain enough tension to keep the power of nurturing and growth expressing through the realm of our Earthly existence.

Another Sacred Geometry is seen at New Moon and that is the Grand Trine/Kite. The players of this energy field are Saturn in Libra at the Helm of the Grand Trine and the Tail of the Kite. Perfect message of Above and Below in One. Its arch of light connects with the light of Earth in Cancer, Jupiter in Taurus, and Neptune in Aquarius, as well as Chiron in Pisces. Neptune and Chiron arch to Earth/Cancer to form the final light of the Grand Trine, as well as arch a light to Neptune to form the final light of the Kite. What does all of this mean?

The Grand Trine is always a Grace of Divine Energy and when a Kite is formed by the arching lights, then the Soul Soars with the joy of freedom to be the Expressed Divine. Saturn honors the creation of structure in the relationship of Source and Matter. It holds firmly to the moral, just and equality of human and spirit. Arching its Light directly to Jupiter in Taurus (in opposition), it challenges the Tip of the Kite to take flight and release Soul wisdom that the Benevolent One (Jupiter) is cultivating the New Garden (Taurus and Capricorn) with the intention to form well the power of the awareness of Oneness (Saturn carries the Law of Universality—all are One).

This arch of Saturn taps the essence of Neptune in Aquarius and Chiron in Pisces with a definite purpose to call forth the Rise of Sacred Wisdom into the Healing of All in order that the New Rituals of Life be the Sustaining of Oneness rather than sustaining separation. Saturn arching light to Earth in Cancer, reminds us that we are cradled in the arms of the Divine Mother, cultivating the completion of Spirit and Matter as One, and releasing the wisdom of how to administrate the power of this oneness into a New Governing Power of Self and our Global Humanity (Earth in Cancer connecting to Sun and Moon in Capricorn).

The Grand Trine and Kite are releasing the Grace of the Divine. We do not have to work at receiving this energy…we simply need to be receptive, take it in and utilize the gift.

Back into the vibration of Uranus at the helm of the T-Square. This blessing of light most certainly stirs the innovative and spontaneous regions of consciousness and activates the impulse to do things NOW, not later and not with the past intact. Nope, it calls for the Present Moment to be noticed and radically changed if it is hanging onto the weeds and growth of the old Garden. Let not this energy be disruptive when you see your best laid plans change in a moment. Let it be that you are willing to stay in the present and radically move into the momentum of new developments. What might flair up in you is the renegade, the rebel, the individualistic mind set. If it be so, let it be the rebel with a cause to live your life from your highest consciousness, the renegade that moves into the Now and the Purpose of higher living and the individual who is willing to reveal that higher power in all that you do.

Use the Power of the Present by realizing the mystical wisdom carried in this word. Using Tibetan Numerology, I would love to reveal the Secret within this word:

5 5 10

P R E S E N T (10)

5 8 2 4 3 22/4

14/5

This equation releases the following message of being in the Present:

10 in Spirit: When we live in the Present, we Expand our Spiritual Being and Move into the next Cycle with ease, joy, love and benevolence.

22 in the Mental: We Master our Minds and are more creatively productive

4 in the Mental: We use our reasoning power to develop a world of creative expression from the ideals of the Divine Mind

14 in the Physical: We recognize that there is support, particularly from the Celestial realm

5 in the Physical: We are able to Master our Life in all levels of our human Living

10 in the Soul Level: We Master the cycles of our soul evolving and expanding into the wisdom of our Higher Spirit and the urges of joy, love and benevolence are felt as a need to BE

Power of the Moon and Sun as well as the Earth via the Sabian Message

 

 

Earth in Cancer: A Man Suspended over a vast level Place

Sun and Moon in Capricorn: Three Stained-glass windows, one damaged by bombardment

The level place is a symbol of equality. To Be suspended, however, leaves one in a position of waiting, perhaps uncertainty and creating indecision. What is known in the mystical circles of wisdom is that the water is the Ocean of the Divine Consciousness and the Womb of the Great Mother. In the moment of this time and space, we are suspended in equality while the Great Womb prepares to release the new birth. Patience, love and harmony are called forth here.

The beauty of stained-glass now damaged perhaps reveals a battle has taken place in the mind and the vision of the world (window). Perhaps this is a view of spiritual dialogue long held to be true and now must be blown out…not by incessant questions of the mind, but by research of the Heart and inner knowing (Moon) and the Higher Heart – Higher Mind (Sun). Now is the time to seek the New Truth of Spirit and Live the Truth that has always been encoded in the Psyche of everyone: Source is the Essence of You, the Living You, the Matter and Spirit of You. In the New Religions, you are called to live this, not suffer it.

Contemplate your power in these Sabian messages. Will you give in to destruction, be suspended from your soul intentions, opposing your higher ideal or move into a higher awareness of deeper knowing you are releasing from the Inner Temple?

Please remember to read the Lunar Letter of the Month. May you be blessed as you celebrate the New Moon, the Power of Christmas Eve…the awaiting the Birth of The Christed Self, and the power of creating a New Garden within 2012.

Warm blessings and the Grace of Love,

Katherine

New Moon – July 30

New Moon of Holly begins at 11:39:47 am Pacific Daylight Time on July 30th!

This is a significant New Moon.  It is the second New Moon of the Month of July, thus called the Black Moon.  As I shared in Oak Moon Mother’s letter, the Black Moon is a time of psychic power, and calls forth  the wisdom of using Universal Energy in a ritualistic manner.  On the personal level, it may pull you within and if you are in a healthy place, that will mean aligning with the Sacred aspects of yourself.  If you are in an unhealthy reality, it carries the potential to pull you into the darkness of your mental, emotional conflicts.  Be sure you align with your Higher Intentions, Reverence to the Higher Self, Higher Dimensions, Source. 

Further, there are more significant experiences to be explored with this New Moon.  One reality is that  Mercury is at 0 degrees Virgo and therefore Opposite Neptune who is at 0 degrees Pisces.  On this New Moon Day, Neptune is Retrograde and Mercury is slowing down in preparation to be retrograde (August 2nd Mercury goes stationary in readiness to retrograde at 8:50 pm Pacific Daylight Time).    They will both be bouncing off each other’s energy during the retrograde (3 weeks of retrograde, plus time to for Mercury to get back into original position of 0 degrees Virgo before strong in its forward motion).  They will be trying to reach the depth of the “other’s” wisdom.  They must meet at the Center Point which is 0 degrees Sagittarius 37 minutes.  They must meet the Archer who points his arrow to the Heaven (higher state of consciousness), where benevolence meets and the shaking of hands can occur in an honoring of agreements being made in the higher levels of wisdom. 

What can we expect from this retrograde/opposition?  Well, if working from the lower ego and only in the 3rd dimensional reality, then we can expect that we will have difficulty keeping focus, traveling much of the time in illusion, and unwilling to seek reality through Truth.  Our minds will slip and slide through the muggy emotions.  We will make choices based on our “feel good” addictions.  We may undermine our wisdom by aligning with  false realities that appear real.  We will dance with our Rose Colored Glasses and hype up the messages of spiritual deception. 

However, if we choose to be Conscious Individuals, following a Spiritual Path of Truth in the Changing World, then we will find ourselves bringing our logical mind into the sacred realms of the Divine Mind through the doors of sacred mystery.  We will bring our senses into compassion and truly feel the vibration of the word Oneness.  The color of our personal lives will change from illnesses, self-sacrificing limitations, and separation to the power to live in Union with our whole self, the union with others, and the most sacred intent to serve the higher wisdom of our changing world. 

We can bring our minds to the Sacred Mind of Wisdom (Ocean of Consciousness–Neptune/Pisces) and clean up our old way of thinking.  In so doing, we will open the channel of New Thought, the Wisdom of a New Language, and we will “feel” the vibrations of the sacred words resonating in our corporeal self.  We will “remember” who we are (Source).  We will allow ourselves to Live Source, because we will feel the vibration of that word living within us. 

During the power time of the New Moon, a sacred geometrical symbol occurs.  It is the Mystical Rectangle.  That rectangle represents a Treasure Box ready to be unlocked by our consciousness.  We need first to be aligned in our Sacred Domain of Oneness, Compassion, and Love for All.  Then the Key, Mercury, will unlock the power of Mars in Gemini (allowing active communication to occur), who in turn will unlock the Power of Pluto in Capricorn (allowing the active communication to form a Great Change in the World), who in turn will activate Chiron in Pisces (Allowing the wounded Hero to release the power of transforming the ancient wisdom, releasing the old models, and encouraging the new language that will help all decipher the true Codes of the Universe. 

Ah, but let me not leave out the Sabian messenger of the Sun/Moon Conjunction.  This message states: “A Bolshevik propagandist.”  It stirs the power of passion that motivates social and political  change—caused by the expectations of personal perspectives.  Hmm, sorta sounds like what is happening in our U.S., eh?  This is a time to use the power of virtue to bring a better and greater shift of ideas and ideals. 

Yes, we are watching changes in our personal U.S. government, our world governments, and our world of spiritual alignments.  May we grant ourselves the attitude of Union that means we are here to promote harmony, live with integrity, love with compassion, and encourage change that is for the better of all.  May we use the power of this New Moon to shape shift personally so our positive influence will help in the shapes-shifting of the World.  After all, we are the Executives in Charge of the Earth and are encouraged to use the Higher Mind, our Source Mind to do just that.

May the Magick of this New Moon be used by you to form the Integrity of Higher Purpose in your life so that the Life of All can vibrate from the waves of energy you are perpetuating.

New Moon – Solar Eclipse

Wednesday, June 1st, 2011

Another Lunar Cycle with Eclipses will occur this lunar month. We start at this New Moon with a partial Solar Eclipse.

The Moon and Sun are 11 degrees 1 minute into the sign of Gemini. The Earth is dancing in the middle of them and keeping the full expression of the Solar Light and thus conscious insentient from being revealed. Gemini is the sign of communication, early childhood development, dealing with siblings and neighbors, and finding the power of discernment so we may make right choices. It is the Law of Union expressing within us and may not be revealing everything we feel outwardly if we allow the eclipse to take over.

The Sun and Moon will get some assistance to focus and communicate well and intimately through their arching lights that reach out to Saturn in Libra in a positive and grace-filled reality. This will most certainly help in the communications necessary with our significant others, with our partners in business and the most important friendship we have (BFF). Though Saturn is in Retrograde, it nonetheless will activate our inner ability to recognize the importance of the “We” factor, not just the independent, “Me” factor.

Then, the Sun and Moon arch their lights in a challenge way to Chiron in Pisces. The agitation will call forth the inner wounds that we have carried for a long time. Bringing them to light allows us to clear them. More reevaluations of the secrets of abuses of the Church (Pisces) will continue, but greater healing will also arise. Will you take this call to turn what was abusive in your life to what is now life experiences you have learned by and gained personal healing and self-respect for being alive and able to deeply care for yourself and others?

The Sabian message of the degree the Sun and Moon activate is, “A topsy saucily asserting herself.” Fun loving, bold, assertiveness actions from those you would not expected are activated here. In a child-like manner, you might find yourself or another creating statements that are a bit abrasive, but call forth the truth in an irreverent manner. You may find yourself or another shockingly speaking out (and it may look disrespectful). Listen well if you hear someone speaking in this usual-for-them manner. See to learn a truth that you may need to hear. If it is you speaking, this may be the opportunity to come out of your shell and break free of false shyness keeping you from revealing the inner truth you do know.

Blessings of this New Moon-Partial Solar Eclipse….time to set the pattern for the month with gentle intention (eclipses can eclipse your outcome, so do be in clarity of your desires and note them, speak them and feel them boldly).

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.

New Moon – Scorpio Reed

Friday, November 5th, 2010

It’s Friday! Tonight, in the dark, Scorpio’s energy takes over fully. New Moon begins at 9:51:46 pm PDT. The sun and Moon are both at 13 Degrees and 40 Minutes of Scorpio. Ominous 13, Awesome Reality. Thirteen is a sacred number of the Divine Feminine. It is the number of Lunar Phases that occur in a Solar Year. It is the power of Transformation, and the gift of Proliferation.

Scorpio is the time of our life when we enter the temple of our soul and cull the last vestiges of a year of experiences. We allow our consciousness to enter a fallow state so the clearing can allow the Higher Order to fertilize the soul soil with prepatory energy to encourage a new year of growth.

As we meet the New Moon tonight, the Sun and Moon also have Mercury in Scorpion assisting the travels through the darkness of our inner mind. Mercury stimulates the inner contemplation, evaluation, and power to make right choices. Right behind the Sun and Moon, Venus continues her retrograde and is at 0 Degrees of Scorpio….intense energy fields are being released.

We can either go spinning through our shadows, work on the energies of old beliefs, enter the pathway of jealousy, resentments, anger and frustration, or we can change that tune. We can express our feelings with accountability on our part. We can bring light to our shadowy beliefs and change the false perceptions. We can take the power to create new pathways by culling the old with our personal intention rather than being pulled under the quagmire of victimhood, fear of our own empowerment, and lost through the control factors we attempt to cling to.

We can use the higher consciousness that has settled within as Uranus and Jupiter continue to travel in a retrograde process through Pisces. They are reaching the deep inner sacred places to release the light of truth and the compassion of living as one. They are in a Trine (grace and flow) with Mercury, and thus helping the mental-emotional self understand, release the old secrets and gather the new plans of higher realities.

Saturn is crossing Libra and challenges Mercury to maintain a balance with integrity and determination to follow through with the highest intent. Saturn is in an obsessive-compulsive alignment with Uranus and Jupiter….as though to say, “Hurry Up! We need to get to the bottom of our fears, change them, and enter the Light.” Pluto in Capricorn challenges Uranus and Jupiter as well, squaring off with them and continuing the call of Major Transmutation so the Soul of Humanity is open and ready for the Waves of Light ready to explode into a New Birth of Existence.

Chiron is sitting at a stationary position in Aquarius, still right beside Neptune who continues her retrograde. The stationary moment calls us to pay close attention while we feel the tension of waiting….Chiron, the Law of Destiny, is posed to take on the new level of the Higher Order….but wait….are we ready? Are we willing to give up the old stories of woundedness, incapabilities, false fears? Chiron is asking that question right now. Can you answer it?

Join the forces with the Universe. Take your Co-Executive Position…be willing to move into the depths, reveal the true Light, let your soul-soil go fallow so it may take up the passion to be prolific in a whole new way.

AWEN!

New Moon – Ivy (Libra)

Thursday, October 7th, 2010

At 11:44:28 am Pacific Time, the Sun and the Moon are kissing partners. They will be 14 degrees and 23 minutes into Libra’s constellation. Saturn and Mercury, riding hip-to-hip, also activate the Libra energy field. They, in fact form a T-Square with the North and South Moon Nodes (North in Capricorn, South in Cancer). And both are in a quindecile alignment with Uranus in Pisces. The North and South Moon Node activate Soul intentions to follow the blessings of Source calling us to know our true intentions and foundation.

Venus, is sitting stationary in Scorpio and preparing to head into a retrograde cycle. Venus only turns retrograde once every 18 months April 2009 was her last turn and she was in Aries. Now she sits in Scorpio with more for us to learn. So, what are we learing in our experiences? Venus teaches us about how we relate, how we harmonize with each other. She also teaches us to be resourceful and solve conflicts. She teaches us to be worthy and discover our soul intention and purpose. She teaches us to take our talents and do something with them and in exchange gain our prosperity.

It is quite obvious that Libra is being stirred and we are asked to look deeply into our relationships (Venus is the ruler of Libra and therefore has a strong influence on this stellium of plantes aligned in this constellation for the New Moon Time). The timing of this event in the northern hemisphere brings all of these planets above the horizon. Therefore, looking at our most intimate relationships is brought into clear light. Libra rules marriages and business partners. It has us looking at relationships with our closest and dearest friends. It calls us to look at the relationship we have with our soul and our life journey. Are our relationships in balance or not?

Libra has us look at equality, fairness, and the creation of harmony. With the Sun and the Moon alignment, there is the gift of bringing mind-to-heart so we can feel what we think. And it calls us from heart-to-soul, so we know what we are doing and what we may need to adjust.

Saturn and Mercury call our attention to truly evaluate, make right assessments, and decipher the stability of our most important relationships, the manner in which we hold sacred honor with and for each other, to step into equal positions, and create harmony through love. In the quindecile experience that is going on, we may feel quite obsessive about the sacredness of our relationships as Uranus (the Law of Love), brings light in the the secrets of life (Pisces) and asks that we move into the passion of forgiveness, and the truth of sacred alignment in our relationships.

Venus, sitting rigidly still for the moment (full retrograde tomorrow and remains until Nov 18th), builds tension and through the energy of Scorpio, may increase fears, for Scorpio reminds us of everything we cannot control. So, let go and allow the power of Venus in the light of love, the opening of the soul door, and the gift of resolving issues, come to the forefront. Let the deeper research occur so the sacred truth releases, As Venus is sitting right alongside Mars, Mars gets to play a part in moving the power of Scorpio to activate the greater changes and motivate the deeper healing.

Intensity has been the name of our game for quite a while now. And why not? It is time to let the our ancestral processes end their long-term job. The memories have held us captive, guided us through life events, and urged us to discover much more. Pluto in Capricorn keeps pushing the buttons to call us to our own authority in Spirit, Mind and Body. Will we allow ourselves? I believe we are and these intense nudges keep reminding us not to fall back and use what we are familiar with.

Let this new moon continue to help you flush out fears, frustrations, and imbalances. Let this new moon help you form a strong relationship with your soul. From that point of life-reference, let all other relationships come to a greater balance, a blessed expression, and a union of true equality—interdependency.

AWEN!
