Let's look into the meaning and symbolism of Uranus: the planet of transformation rebellion, intuition, freedom and innovation.
Uranus is likely unexpected energy. It contains the stuff that's been lingering all around us that has yet to congeal and pop itself into existence. As we witness Uranus so powerfully speaking in the astrology and cosmology of January 2021 we are invited to consider what it is that we ourselves might be ignoring/seeking as flip sides of the same coin.
This January we have Uranus stationing direct 1/14 & Jupiter square Uranus exactly on 1/16. We also have Saturn square Uranus for much of 2021, though not exact.
As I mention in the broadcast, squares typically speak of conflict. I would like to suggest here that this square is a "challenge" for us to meet with our higher selves and bring to light the world we want to see.
Introspective Challenge to Create a New World!
So the idea is two fold: first the we take responsibility for the embodiment of the change we want to see (no small task here folks! this will likely be an ongoing theme of 2012).
And second that we endeavor to connect with those around the world who are feeling the same call. This is not a lighthearted call, it is a soul calling. We are being called to connect beyond ego, beyond self, beyond everything that we know as true... So as to seed a new bright future :)
Finally I mention in the broadcast a you tube video I put together for the new moon this past week. You can find the video below.
I speak in the broadcast for January 8th about the significance of the number 108. It is worth noting that this sequence will be activated twice this year. First on January 8th, and once again on October 8th.
To understand the importance of this number it is helpful to take a step back and look at what we know in modern times as the "Fibonacci Sequence"
The first 24 numbers of the Fibonacci Sequence are: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377, 610, 987, 1597, 2584, 4181, 6765, 10946, 17711, 28657.
If we apply decimal parity to the Fibonacci sequence we find that there is a repeating series of 24 digits as seen here: (0), 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 4, 3, 7, 1, 8, 9, 8, 8, 7, 6, 4, 1, 5, 6, 2, 8, 1.
If we add these 24 digits up, we get the number 108.
0 + 1 + 1 + 2 + 3 + 5 + 8 + 4 + 3 + 7 + 1 + 8 + 9 + 8 + 8 + 7 + 6 + 4 + 1 + 5 + 6 + 2 + 8 + 1 = 108
What’s amazing is that the 1.08 constant growth rate the nautilus uses to build its spiral shell involves the same pattern which repeats every 24 numbers in the Fibonacci sequence.
Furthermore, the number 108 has significance with regards to the distance between the earth and the moon and between the earth and the sun. Check out the image below :)
There are a myriad of ways the number 108 arises, it is woven through Buddhist and Hindu culture, religion and esoteric thought:
- Each deity in Hinduism has 108 names,
- In a prayer mala (used for mediation) there are 108 beads
- Kathmandu is said to be the capital of Buddhism and there are exactly 108 images of Lord Buddha, erected in and around the place in reverence of the Buddhism deity.
- All their holy writings in Tibet, as much as it is, have been divided into exactly 108 sacred books. Tibetan Buddhism also believes that there are 108 sins and 108 delusions of the mind.
- In Buddhism, it is also believed that the road to nirvana is laden with exactly 108 temptations. So, every Buddhist has to overcome 108 earthly temptations to achieve nirvana.
108 was also used in the construction of the Great Pyramid at Giza and the Sarsen Circle Stonehenge has a diameter of 108 feet.
On the Shri Yantra there are marmas (points) where three lines intersect, and there are 54 such intersections. Each intersection has masculine and feminine qualities, which represent Shiva and Shakti. 54 x 2 equals 108. Thus, there are 108 points that define the Sri Yantra as well as the human body.
I mention in the broadcast how the significance of the number 108 points us to a greater type of intelligence and universal unfolding. Sacred geometry invites brings us toward this realization as well. When we consider that there is so much more order and precision in the universe than that which we are aware of.. that even with the number 108 we are barely scratching the surface of divine intelligence.
I mention also that there are many who have alluded to some similar realization. Albert Einstein, as quoted in the image above... Nikola Tesla who said "If you only knew the magnificence of the 3, 6 and 9, then you would have the key to the universe."
Many others have alluded to the need for a multidimensional awakening, Gandhi, Laszlo, the Dali Lama, Krishnamurti, Howard Zinn... harmonize with Tesla and Einstein to suggest and state that given the current direction of our collective on this planet, we need to reach for something that is beyond our current reality. I offer in the broadcast that the sis beyond the 3rd dimensional world of physical things and fear. All of these thinkers and leaders suggest we need to reach of a dimensional shift of who and how we are. I offer in the broadcast that this is linked to our realization that we can exist in multiple dimensions simultaneously. That we are being invited and cajoled step into existing in 4d (duality and astral creation) as well as 5d (oneness).
I mention the idea of aliens as "star beings" .. simply beings from the stars who are here in support of our awakening, but who cannot intervene. It is humanity that must shift and awaken. Noone can do this for us.
To the right is the crop circle which appeared in 2002 in Crabwood UK. While there are certainly many fake crop circle out there, dousers have tested this site and found it "off the charts" in terms of the way pendulums and dousing rods interact with it. As with everything, take only what feels true for you, leave the rest and conjecture :)
Below is a video from David Flynn talking about sacred geometry and the 2002 Crabwood crop circle. Enjoy!
On December 29/30 we have a full moon in Cancer to support us in closing a year of total transformation.
Cancer is ruled by the moon so the culminations, realizations and emotions might feel extra intense during this time.
As we look to the close of 2020 and the beginning of 2021 we are reminded how far we've come on out transformational journey as well as haw much space for new beginnings and new creations lies ahead.
One of the amazing new opportunities that I mention in this broadcast and will discuss in depth during the 12.31 gathering (see link below) is that the earth is awakening as we are awakening. This means that the beings who previously retreated into inner planes during darker times are preparing to reemerge and support us in co-creating a beautiful bright future.
We have the chance to understand this more deeply during the meditation for this broadcast. And we will continue to have opportunities for connection and understanding of the inner earth in both 2021 and 2022.
Join me live on December 31 at 3pm for a New Year Full Moon Gathering!
We'll gather in circle to celebrate as well as discuss discuss predictions for the year ahead.
If you miss the live gathering a recording will be posted after :)
Finally there's just one more week remaining to join the Lunar Herbal Alchemy Guild! You can find out more about the course and sign up for your preferred level of participation by clicking here or the image below. Much love and look forward to seeing you there :)
We live in transformation times!
I hope that you can feel December 2020 has been packed full of intense energies. We have so much light and information codes coming though to our planet now. We have the eclipses of November 30th and December 14th. Followed by Saturn entering Aquarius on December 17th and Jupiter entering Aquarius on December 19th. Then coming to meet as one bright star in the night sky on December 21st.
In addition to the conjunction of Jumpier and Saturn, on 12.21 we have Winter Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere (Summer Solstice in the Southern Hemisphere), the gathering of Elders to activate the Uluru Prophecy, the Hopi and Mayan Prophecies, as well as Egyptian Goddess Nut activating the night sky.
I will discuss all of this in detail at a live online retreat on 12.21. You can find the link to join us here. as well as by clicking the image at the bottom of this post.
For the purpose of this post & broadcast, I want to share a little bit about Egyptian Goddess Nut. Nut (pronounced 'newt' or 'not') is one of the oldest goddesses in Egyptian mythology. She is the goddess of the sky (nut actually means ‘sky’ in the ancient Egyptian language). It was believed that that the sky is, in fact, a star-covered nude woman arched over the earth in a plank or perhaps down-dog position. Some of her titles include Mistress of All, She Who Holds a Thousand Souls, and She Who Protects. The image below shows Goddess Nut as she is often depicted, swallowing and birthing the Sun.
It's worth noting that Nut is often shown with blue skin and start painted on her skin. This reflects the belief that she was the sky which enveloped the earth.. and the stars that we see at night were actually her body.
In the image to the left she is sown with Geb, her divine masculine counterpart.
Below we see the goddess Nut depicted in the Temple of Hathor at Dendera. In a similar fashion, she is swallowing the sun and birthing it as well.
Due to her role in the regeneration of the sun each day, Nut came to be considered a protector of souls as they entered the afterlife. She was a friend to the dead, a mother-like guardian, who would help the souls leave the underworld and join her in the stars. For this reason, the inside lids of many sarcophagi are painted with images of Nut. A prayer often written on ancient tombs reads “O my Mother Nut, stretch Yourself over me, that I may be placed among the imperishable stars which are in You, and that I may not die.”
I offer here that as we are each entering into our unique death/rebirth process that Nut is here to support us in the letting go and being reborn. I hope that you enjoy the broadcast and can join us on 12.21.
December 2020 is a powerful month energetically. We are in the midst of total transformation, can you feel it? We opened this month just off the energies of a Lunar Eclipse on November 30, followed by a Total Solar Eclipse on December 14, and culminated with the 12.21 Shift of Ages on December 21st.
While everyone is talking about the 12.21 event, this eclipse on December 14 is a potent and very necessary part of our journey of awakening and rebirthing.
In the broadcast for this event I talk about the "energetic seeding of 2021" and offer a practice to help us all vibrate and harmonize with the light that we truly are. I hope that you enjoy this offering!
Please also mark your calendars for an online retreat I will be offering on December 21 to celebrate 12.21. You can make sure you get the information to join us by clicking the image below.
As Neptune stations direct on November 29 and the the Full Moon in Pisces on November 30th is eclipsed we have the opportunity for energetic rebirth.
This Penumbral Lunar Eclipse means that the moon moves into the Earth's shadow and the sun momentarily blocks the illumination that creates a full moon. This energetic has the effect of resetting the current energetic cycle and allowing the shadow to reveal what is hidden in our subconscious or keeping us blocked from seeing more clearly.
I discuss the larger context of the Lunar Eclipse in the broadcast linked to this post. This includes that we are being rebirthed into a remembering and release of energetic patterns that no longer serve us. We are being "rebirthed" into something profound: energetic stillness, so as to be able to truly understand, feel and integrate energies that have always been moving through us and around us. This might sounds simple and easy, but its integration requires and is supported by both eclipses, which means it is anything but simple and easy. These energies will carry us through the next months of our lives as we each walk our individual path towards collective cleanse and reconstruction.
As a part of this process I got the nudge to offer an online retreat on 12/21 this year. You can register to receive more information about it and join us here as well as by clicking the image on right.
Can you feel the pull?
We are being invited to de-program.. so as to re-program ourselves. Some of what we experience is out of this world amazing and enlightening (!) and some of it is (for lack of a better phrasing) all the gunk under the rug from the past. At least everything that need to be seen and removed from all-of-our-this-lifetime.
Are you ready? I AM!
What I am 100% clear about and sure of is that all of the personal work and transformation we are each individually and collectively moving through IS THE WORK. As in, this is the exact stuff our soul has signed on for and been waiting for. THIS (not glorious, possibly frustrating moment) IS IT!
This post might bring up a it of agitation.. THIS IS IT?! If that feels like you I offer that you're missing the point. The "it", the thing we think we want and need is moving and shifting.. So, yes, it may feel that your world is shifting. We in being invited o trust that ultimately all that is happening is for the better; is for the good of ourselves and the whole.
The question might entertain our minds with is WHY. Why? Why is all this happening?
We're on the trajectory of enlightenment.. and we can all identify that there's tons of stuff to be clarified in our world. So here we are, Awakening. It can feel a lot. It can feel like we're awakening into the muck. But hey, seeing the muck pretty much assures you that you now know its there. The beauty of the awakening is that you can now address it.
That is a long-winded introduction to Goddess Maia or Maya. As everything I've just written has already been written before, in different ways. That we live in a world of illusion/delusion... and on the flip side transformation and immense possibility.
I mention in the broadcast that this Goddess in Hindu thought can been seen in a negative way: Maya is seen as something essentially negative: a synonym for the illusion of material existence and the ignorance (avidya) that makes it possible.
This is only one side of the same coin, however, and in this broadcast we are invited to see and to understand that this Goddess is point us to the immense power of our own consciousness, of our own creative life force.
In Greek myth, Maia is viewed as the goddess of Spring and the coming of new life. Of course these two views are the positive and negative aspects of the same Reality.
While Maya is associated with avidya, non-wisdom, the Greek goddess Maia is the mother of Hermes, the god of wisdom, and in Buddhism, Maya is the mother of the Buddha, the incarnation of wisdom.
Welcome to the 11 11 portal for 2020. While this energetic alignment happens every year on 11 11, this year is extra special and quite potent as we have the 2020 energies all around us, supporting us towards ascension and transformation.
As I mention in the broadcast, 11 11 asks the question: Do you believe in the things you cannot see? This is because we are living in powerful, transformative and creative times.
I discuss the fundamental meaning of 11 11 in terms of a binary universe in the broadcast. I also wanted to add a few interesting links from quantum physics, in case you want to sense the convergence of science and spirituality that is on the way!
In the broadcast, we meet two Ascended Masters: St. Germain and Serapis Bey. While there are a variety of interpretations as to what it means to be an "Ascended Master", in my understanding of it's most simple and broad application, Ascended Master can be applied to those whom we as humans consider enlightened or ascended beings.
Another word that I find interesting and potentially synonymous to use is "Avatar". Avatar's transcend individual consciousness and show us that there are thought forms and energetic ways of being and knowing that exist beyond our 3D physical world, yet are also inexplicably tied to and oven into the threads of our reality.
St. Germain is an Ascended Master, Avatar and enlightened being whom I've mentioned before. There is much written about him, I will include some links in this post for you to review and sense what feels true for you. I can share here that I have come to interact with this energy as the Violet Flame.
St. Germain has long been know to be associated with and be the keeper of the Violet Flame, among other things. So as we interact with him for the purposes of the 11 11 portal, to keep things simple you can just consider him to be an Avatar or Ascended Master.. someone akin to a buddha or saint.. but also someone who is very much here and available to humanity
Links about St. Germain:
Serapis Bey is considered by many an Ascended Master. He is similar to St. Germain in that he also has been thought and understood to be and enlightened being who is here to assist humanity during this time of transition and transformation. He oversees the Ascension Temple at Luxor in Egypt. Serapis Bey is the beloved avatar who supports us in the initiations for the ascension, hence his presence in our 11 11 portal meditation!
It is thought that Serapis Bey was incarnated as a high priest in one of the "Temples of the Sacred Fire" on Atlantis who migrated to Egypt at the time of the destruction of Atlantis. It is also believed that he was incarnated as the Egyptian Pharaoh Amenhotep III (who constructed the Temple of Luxor) and also as Leonidas, the King of Sparta, who was killed in 480 BC defending the pass of Thermopylae against the invasion of Greece by Emperor Xerxes I of Persia. According to the teachings of Agni Yoga, Serapis Bey was in past lives the Roman King Numa Pompilius, the philosophers Confucius, Plato and Lucius Anneus Seneca.
Much is happening on and around October 31st this year, 2020. As we lily already sense, this year has been one preparing us for deep and profound transformation on a personal and cultural level. It is fitting then that the day traditionally celebrated at Samhain, Halloween, Day of the Dead, and All Soul's Day also happens to fall on a Super Blue Moon. Furthermore, during this time we have Goddess and Asteroid Juno coming into her own in Scorpion, in perfect sync with all of this transformational energy.
I share more about Samhain and Juno in the broadcast above, as well as in the blog post below. Enjoy!
Samhain is both a festival of the Dead as well as a celebration of Rebirth. Meaning "Summer's End" and pronounced saah-win or saa-ween, Samhain is a celebration of the end of the harvest and the start of the coldest half of the year. For many practitioners, myself included, Samhain also is the beginning of the spiritual new year.
Originating in ancient Europe as a Celtic Fire festival, Samhain is now celebrated worldwide. In the northern hemisphere, many Nature Worshipers celebrate Samhain from sundown on October 31 through November 1.
With the growth and spread of Christianity as the dominant religion throughout Europe, Samhain time took on Christian names and guises. All Saints' Day or All Hallows on November 1 commemorated Christian saints and martyrs. All Souls' Day on November 2 was a remembrance for all souls of the dead. With the coming of Christian Spaniards to Mexico, the indigenous customs of honoring the dead at this time of year mixed with Roman Catholicism and gave birth to the Day of the Dead, Dia de los Muertos, in early November. Samhain shares the ancient spiritual practice of remembering and paying respects to the Dead with these related religious holidays of Christianity.
Halloween, which is celebrated on October 31 is an abbreviation for All Hallow's Eve. Although occurring at the same time of year and having roots in end-of-harvest celebrations of the ancient past, Halloween and Samhain are not the same, but two separate holidays that can differ quite a lot in their focus and practice. In contemporary America and elsewhere, Halloween is a secular folk holiday. Like its cousin, Thanksgiving, it is widely and publicly celebrated in homes, schools, and communities, large and small, by people of many paths, ethnic heritages, and worldviews. Furthermore, Halloween has evolved to be both a family-oriented children's holiday as well as an occasion for those of all ages to creatively express themselves and engage in play in the realm of make-believe and fantasy through costumes, trick-or-treating, play-acting and engaging in make-believe.
Juno was one of the oldest Roman deities, the three original Gods, Jupiter, Juno and Minerva. She is associated with Hera in the Greek myths but belief in Juno pre-existed Hera and they are not the same. Juno had various names, Juno Regina (Queen), Juno Sospita (protector of confinement, childbirth), Juno Lucina (Light), Juno Moneta (Moon).
She was said to be both the wife and sister of Jupiter, King of the Gods (note in my podcast I mistakenly said Saturn.. I meant to say Jupiter!), and mother of Mars, whose father was not Jupiter but rather a flower — though many stories now say Jupiter. How interesting that the symbol for Juno looks like a flower.
Juno is the protector of and the women her power has been long sidelined and underestimated as have all female deities during the Age of Pisces which roughly relates to the Age of Christianity. As we leave that Astrological Age and move into the Age of Aquarius all these long lost deities are gaining prominence again, slowly.
Just like Hera, Juno's sacred animal was the peacock. Below is an except from Aesop's Fables about "Juno and the Peacock"
The peacock came to see Juno, because he could not accept with equanimity the fact that the goddess had not given him the song of the nightingale. The peacock complained that the nightingale's song was wondrously beautiful to every ear, while he was laughed at by everyone as soon as he made the slightest sound. Juno then consoled the peacock and said, 'You are superior in beauty and superior in size; there is an emerald splendour that shines about your neck, and your tail is a fan filled with jewels and painted feathers.' The peacock protested, 'What is the point of this silent beauty, if I am defeated by the sound of my own voice?' 'Your lot in life has been assigned by the decision of the Fates,' said Juno. 'You have been allotted beauty; the eagle, strength; the nightingale, harmony; the raven has been assigned prophetic signs, while unfavourable omens are assigned to the crow; and so each is content with his own particular gift.'
Do not strive for something that was not given to you, lest your disappointed expectations become mired in discontent.
It is interesting here as we vibrate higher and ascend up out of heavier and darker times to look at the potential powerful lesson of "Being Here Now".. in whatever our "Here and Now" look like. This might be a potent part of the medicine and healing that Juno is offering us now through December 2020.
