HAPPY NEW MOON!!
This Holy Days New Moon happened at 5:04am MST this morning, Wednesday December 15th. Today's New Moon is in Sagittarius and it has a very clear message: "Aim High!" Imagine the BEST possible scenario in every situation, and then get down to business in the practical world, as this moon has done, since it was at 24 degrees of Sagittarius, it went into Capricorn within a few hours. The energy of this cycle asks us to aim high and ground fast!
In the days ahead, we will want to experiment with being optimists and tie camels quickly. If we take the time to imagine some kind of impossible miracle that will solve the problem or limitation we are facing RIGHT NOW and Now, and NOW . . . If we can envision a "best possible scenario," even when things "don't look good," it just might happen!!
TURTLE NEW MOON
I'm calling this the TURTLE NEW MOON!! It is time to get prepared to be a "turtle," and be able to feel "at home" in our body, and be able to "go anywhere," because just about anything might happen and we need to be prepared. The intuition or the gut "knows" what it needs to know to navigate the next cycle, and the next year.
For me, my belly is my turtle-home. When i listen to my belly--it knows what to do in each moment. The closer we get to the eclipse, the more important it will be to be vigilant. Vigilance needs to increase each day as we walk toward the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on New Years Eve.
DEEP WINTER MYSTERIES
Sagittarius Key - Aim High
Capricorn Key - Capricorn and Aquarius are both related to Saturn and are doing a kind of deep alchemy at this time. We are shifting from Capricornian to Aquarian structures. The unconditional love and gentle heart of Pisces is our guide in the next two months, during this Caprico-Aquario change-over. The spiritual Spring of Pisces radiates its light and wisdom to us in the deep dark winter. i can feel it radiating from March in the future--this Piscean love light, calling us through the next few months, to spring. Take care of practical things and Trust in a deep alchemy of soul and spirit even in the presence of fear or perceived limitation
RETURN OF THE CHILDREN OF LIGHT INSIDE AND OUT
I'm remembering a book title, "Return of the Children of Light: Incan and Mayan Prophecies for a New World." This book is by Judith Bluestone Polich. I participated with Judith in a Don Miguel Ruiz apprenticeship. This book title is ringing right now in my ears. The return of the children of light.
This cycle is a powerful time in the mysteries of the Christos. The second coming of Christ will be through the Divine Feminine, and these eclipses, will be like angel's trumpets calling forth this awakening. There is already a call that women and men are feeling. Jesus led an awakening that began an error of men. (mythically and archetypally) Now, at the "second coming," as it is called, I believe women will lead the awakening through our capacity for unconditional love and miracle consciousness, and return our earth and humanity to balance.
There is a call from the deep feminine and it echoes out across the earth. Girls being cut, women being raped, these "calls" echo across the earth, and across consciousness. It may become more and more difficult for us to "ignore" these calls. The trumpets are ringing. Meanwhile, lighter and lighter states of joy, ecstasy and time-travel are becoming available to those who can access them.
The joy is a healing balm and what it will take, to heal the world of poisoned waters and abused women. There is joy in healing. This is the year to find the joy of healing. 2010 is a power year, and also a "tricky" year, in which we need to step into more mastery, as revealed by the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on New Year's Eve.
NEW YEARS EVE ECLIPSE
This may NOT be a New Years Eve to be out driving around, and if you do--be ULTRA CAREFUL with potential drunk drivers, etc. It is a New Year's Eve to be in high ceremony in communion with the divine. Portals of all kinds are opening and all the extremes will be felt. It is a time of purification and rebirth. These archetypal cycles return again and again. In July and August we had a set of three eclipses last summer. This is the next pass into an eclipse field!! The last set of eclipses were special in that there were THREE of them!! These eclipses are impacted by the POWER of PLUTO in Capricorn.
Some people may choose to leave the earth at this time. Eclipse fields tend to be portals of coming and going--in and out of the third dimensional earth plane. With Pluto involved in the eclipse field, the underworld is alive. It is a time to take care of intenstines and plumbing. It is important as we move toward this Full Moon Eclipse to explore our "right use of power," so we are channeling power into grace and miracles, rather than one form of underworld hell or another, ruled in the tarot by "the devil," or "bad ideas."
PLUTO POWER KEY:
The Scoprio Key (sign of Pluto) is: Boundaries for Beauty. (meaning power can be used to create boundaries and "space" for beauty to happen) For example, placing a boundary to keep oil and gas from drilling into water basins, protects the beauty of nature that we create our own beauty in each day. The power of Pluto and Scorpio can be harnessed on behalf of "Boundaries for Beauty." In order to have a deeply meaningful experience, we have to create the boundaries (or beliefs) for that experience to happen inside of.
WINDOW OF ECLIPSES:
FULL MOON LUNAR ECLIPSE: DECEMBER 31st at 12:13pm MST.
New Moon Solar Eclipse follows just after midnight the night of January 14th. An "old astrologer's tale," tells us the window of shake-up, death of ego and death of kings is ten days before and three days after an eclipse. I've found the field of the eclipses to expand up to a full lunar cycle (or two) surrounding these intense points of LIFE and DEATH POWER.
This power will either lift us up, when we are so aligned "with life," that we are upheld by the new world pushing through, even if we might be hospicing the death of the old, we will feel full of life. This is a time to be aligned with higher divine forces and with "life itself." If one is feeling off center, it is good to take the extra time to "get centered" before engaging in any activity, especially involving heavy machinery or children. Since the eclipses will be in Cancer/Capricorn they will remind us of everything we NEED TO KNOW NOW about our NEW way of WORKING, which may involve "letting go of the old way of working." The Cancer archetype is related to our Children and we will also see eclipse-like changes related to mothering and children.
Our children, our homes and our families will remind us how important they are to us. We all need to practice being families of turtles, who can jump into the middle of the river of LIFE and guide increasingly chaotic situations, into grace, miracles and a core of radiant power that comes when we are aligned with both the earth and the heavens. It is the time to ignite the power to be in our core and center, no matter what is happening, and be able to envision and commit best case scenarios and be able to meet the worst possible scenarios if necessary.
Health may be challenged, as we see this is happening on a National Level as well as on a personal level. We are coming into the "transition times." In these times, we can raise our vibration with elevated states of joy, compassion, faith, miracle consciousness, mercy, forgiveness and gratitude. These higher states will resinate a body back to health from any dis-ease. We need to learn how to work with health in a completely different way, as we enter this eclipse field. The vaccine scandals are just the beginning of what could be "anything." We will increasingly have the power to create with our thoughts and heal or wound ourselves with our thoughts and beliefs.
I am sorry to say that i do not at this time believe that most of Western Medicine is based in what i would call "healthy belief systems." I believe in order to survive the coming times, we will need to develop our capacity to self heal, and to create a system of beliefs and healing that reveals our spirit-mind-body-heart-system as a vehicle that is designed to self heal and mediate consciousness with form for the purpose of stewarding the earth and creating inside of its (our) beauty.
These eclipses in Cancer and Capricorn herald a time to come on the earth where our homes will emerge as our new "healing places," rather than hospitals. I believe it is possible that hospitals could one day be obsolete. These eclipses will push that turn-over forward. The more we can be comfortable healing ourselves like shamans, healers, and priests (or priestesses) the more comfortable we will be, in the coming times.
May the source be with you!!
