We have three energetic, astrological and astronomical events converging around the beginning of August. The first is the Lion's Gate, while the Lion's Gate is actually from the latter part of the July into until mid/late August, many see August 8th as the peak of this portal's energy. We also have a Super Full Moon in Aquarius, the fourth Super Moon in a row! This Super Full Moon is taking place in sync with a Fixed Grand Cross which is bringing us deeper realizations about things that we are ready to release and simultaneously grounding us down with tenacious and empowering energies.
I speak in the podcast about all of these aspects: the Super Full Moon, the Fixed Grand Cross as well as the Lion's Gate. I also mention the binary relationship between Sirius A and Sirius B as well as our Sun and Sirius A. The image at right gives us a better understanding of how Sirius A, the brightest start in our night sky, shares a gravitational orbit with Sirius B, a star which was only discovered by scientists in the 1970's, yet known by the Dogon tribe of Mali, West Africa, to be in existence thousands of years ago.
I also mention the lore and myth behind the Lion's Gate. I will be offering an in-depth live community gathering on August 8th to share fully what I understand about the Lion's Gate portal and it's relationship to Sirius. If you want to join the free live event please subscribe to my email list by clicking here and I will send you the zoom link. Otherwise you can find it after the fact in my YouTube channel :)
The new moon in Leo, which is exact at 10.54am pacific time, is potentially a once in a life time event and opportunity. The energies may feel intense and/or at light speed. I discuss in the podcast the astrological aspects converging to make this new moon as well as the first half of August a powerfully transformational time for us as humans to "level up" in our ability to harness our power as energetic creators. I also mention that some of these energies will carry us through to October of this year, so we have some ongoing experiences to support us in being powerful, comfortable and brightly aware within our new energetic bodies.
I also discuss the presence of Polynesian Goddess Pele. As a volcano goddess, she arrives to support us in the process of shedding our old understandings and downloading new and ancient ways of being and knowing. Pele herself being a primordial force of death and rebirth is perfectly able to provide us the cleansing and upgrading necessary. I lead us through a guided mediation to experience her supportive and transformative powers.
You'll find an image linked to more information below about my upcoming Awakened Dreamer Course. Our first Gathering is with the new moon July 28th 11am PST. We are going to be a smaller group capping at 15, we're now 13! I look forward to having you join me for community and personal exploration :)
Welcome to the most intense super moon of 2022!
We have not only la Luna in the sign of Capricorn, she is conjunct Pluto in Capricorn (!) As I discuss in the podcast this is a recipe for an even more thorough understanding and revision of the need for re-examining and reawakening structures within ourselves and our world.
We also have the alignment energetically of the number 13 and 21 in numerology. In a similar tone to the super full moon and Capricorn conjunct Pluto, the numbers 13 and 21 not only support us in the process of death and rebirth, they help us find patience, steadiness and grounding within this time of transformation.
In the podcast I discuss the presence of goddess Wadjet. By many standards she is the first goddess of the Egyptian Pantheon. She is a cobra goddess carrying primordial serpent energy of protection, wisdom and grounding within oneself. I discuss her myth in the podcast; the outcome of which being every Pharaoh in Egypt dawned her as their crown. Her presence over their third eye as a form of wisdom, protection and grounding. You can see an example in the image to the right.
Finally! A final call for my two courses on lucid dreaming and mediumship. If you buy both together you get one for half price! More information can be found by clicking the image below.
This Cancer New Moon provides us with an opportunity for remembering our inherent connection to all beings and all dimensions. We have the energies of Goddess Eris and Lilith present as both of these asteroids aspect the new moon in powerful ways that I discuss in the podcast (above).
We also have Neptune stationing retrograde just about the time of this new moon. Neptune brings a spiritual, idealistic, psychic and intuitive energy that supports us in rising above illusion/delusion. Seeing it station retrograde with this new moon invites us to go back and have a look at the things we've already discovered with our energetic sensitivity as well as to be open to more relizations and connections in the lunar cycle to come. (You can find out more about Neptune and this new moon via my you tube video below).
I offer in the podcast that both Eris and Lilith carry a much needed dose of divine feminie energy. Their myths and reputations have been shrouded in fear and tales of destructive feminine energy. Akin to dragon energy, which has also been shrouded in fear and destruction, Eris and Lilith are returning to our consciousness and to our level of reality at precisely the right time. Now more than ever we can be nourished and supported by the fearless nurturing and protective energy of the divine feminine. Divine feminine and dragon energy are linked and potentially the same in that they will nt otlerate man made laws.. or huan conceived notions of justice. The answer only to divine justice and the Law of Oneness.
In the podcast I mention the Cult of St. George and Dr. Samantha Riches who has been studying his myths.
The article linked here goes into detail about how she came upon images of dragons with female genitalia being slain by males with swords. One of the images is on the left here.
Finally! I am pleased to announce I have two upcoming online courses: Awakened Dreamer and Botanical Mediumship. Awakened Dreamer Begins July 28th, followed by botanical mediumship. If you join my email list there is an additional early bird discount for one or both classes!
This Full Moon marks the activation of the constellation Orion in the Egyptian Pyramids. The pyramids were created in precise alignment and coordination to the three stars of Orion's belt, as I discuss in the podcast. The Great Pyramid was also built with "star shafts" in precise alignment with the star Alnitak, the leftmost star in Orion's belt. See both images below.
We also have a swath of alignments between our sun and stars in the Orion constellation, as well as the horsehead nebula. This nebula is a bit ephemeral, as it can easily be mistaken as a part of a larger nebula behind it.
For the spiritual seeker these words point to something powerful beneath the surface... this well known yet hard to find nebula looks a bit much like a dragon! For the purposes of our activation in the guided meditation, it is worth noting that this horsehead nebula sits right next to the star Alnitak, which aligns with the star shaft in the King's Chamber this time of year as mentioned above. Could it be that elemental and dragon energy are supporting humanity in awakening, remembering our true nature and connecting to higher dimensions of consciousness? As with everything I offer, take only what feels resonant for you :)
I mention in the podcast that the sarcophagus in the King's Chamber of the Great Pyramid can be toned into to create cymatic hieroglyphs. I sense that this is related to the healing and DNA upgrading sound frequencies that are generated from using certain tones within the Kings Chamber. (More on this from me in a course at the end of the year.)
Today, I want to invite you to join me on a 5 week journey of diving into the power of our dreams for healing and accessing states for higher consciousness. The course begins July 28th with an opening gathering and meets every following Sunday at 11am pst for the following 5 weeks. More information about the course here. Earlybird discounts available through July 1st by joining my email list :)
Welcome to the soul conjuring, energetically soothing and soul connecting energies of the Gemini new moon on May 30 2022.
We have a host of astrological and numerological aspects sustaining us which I discuss in the podcast above. The overarching theme is that we are fully supported in remembering what our soul's journey truly is and expressing that message out into the world!
I link these aspects with both the animal totem/messenger hummingbird as well as Goddess Cordelia. First, Goddess Cordelia. Most commonly known as a British/Celtic goddess she is associated with spring. She is said to be queen of or linked with the Fay/fairies/gnomes. She is also associated with sacred healing waters and wells as well as the month of May and the time of blooming flowers. Her followers used flowers to call in her energies and generally acknowledged her in the bright blooming energy of spring.
The Mayan people believed hummingbirds were magical, sacred creatures. They have a legend which shares about the creation of the hummingbird. It was said the Hummers were sculpted from the left-over feathers used in the creation of other birds. The gods were so in love with the hummingbirds, they put on a great celebration where all the other animals were invited to honor the hummingbird in it's bright beauty and wit.
Hummingbirds were thought to be messengers between humans and the gods. The Pueblo Natives believed hummingbirds delivered their messages of praise and requests to Mother Earth for the shamans.
The Cherokee have a legend that involved the hummingbird. The legend is that the hummingbird used it's speed and swiftness to grab a piece of the world's first tobacco plant in order to help heal a female elder in their tribe.
We have a potent full moon/solar eclipse in Scorpio on May 15 at 9:13 Pacific time. Not only is Scorpio the sign of transformation/death/rebirth.. but this eclipse is happening in sync with the rising and activation of Algol, which is a binary star known as the Third Eye of Medusa.
This eclipse in Scorpio has the capacity to reboot and realign us to be completely on our soul's path. I speak about the astrological aspects at play in the podcast but want to re-emphasize that the questions that arise are very much about our soul's truth and soul's path... and the shifts that are occuring within us might be of a more energetic nature. THis means realizations about how we run our energy every day, the things we are carrying as "truths" that are not actually in alignment with our soul's truth. Full moons are times of culmination, realization and preparation for the waning moon cycle of release. Eclipse are super potent full moons, total eclipses are even more potent full moons, and this eclipse is in the sign of Scorpio which has the powerful capacity to reveal to us the "truth beneath the surface."
I also share in the podcast the myth of Goddess Medusa. Medusa is widely known as the scary, fierce snake haired woman who turned men to stone with her gaze. I unpack the myth and offer that she was not a demon, rather a powerful source of protection from patriarchy and from the energy of disrespect and power-over to return to the energy of oneness and power-with. The snakes associated with wicked scary female power harken back to an earlier podcast about goddess Coatlicue, translated to mean "snakes her skirt". An Aztec goddess so scary to those who found her they buried her again.
We are invited to remember that serpent energy is within us all, it is at the center of our spine, known to spiritual and metaphysical folks as Kundalini energy, but also invoked by the modern western medical tradition as the caduceus. It is interesting to note that even in the patriarchal caduceus we have the union of both divine mascualine and divine feminine energies, each serpent intertwining to make a balanced whole.
Also to share with you the quick YouTube video offering I have about this lunar eclipse below. Enjoy!
Welcome to the new moon in Taurus and partial solar eclipse! While this event takes place on April 30, 2022, we will likely feel the effects a week before and 6 months after. Eclipses are not only powerful times of realization, they have the potential "portals". By portal I mean a non-linear experience that can feel like massive acceleration, or profound realization. This eclipse in particular is on the tipping point of our own realizations for not only how powerful we are as creators, but also of what's possible for us to heal and experience intros lifetime.
I discuss in the podcast above the astrological aspects that are supercharging this eclipse: Pluto retrograde, sun, moon, Uranus conjunction as well as north node conjunction. I also mention the significance of eclipses in this year, 2022, as a tipping point that can move us in a nonlinear way towards the age of Aquarius.
In ancient times those in charge of what we now term astrology were either fired, punished or killed if they got the dates of the eclipses wrong. Who knew? This is an indicator that our ancestors understood the power of these occurrences. They sought to harness their energy as well as gather new information from the cosmos. Knowing the date and time of the eclipse was the job of something equivalent of a high priest or scientist. As it took a fair amount of training (without computers) to tune into these cosmic cycles.
We are fortunate today to have tools and computers to help us with these "divinations" we are also encouraged during this eclipse to step away from our understanding of the world as we know it. In this podcast I offer that there are higher dimensions co-existing with us already on this planet. One way of beginning to understand higher dimensions and levels of consciousness is to consider that life exists deep within the earth.
While there are many theories and names for those theories of what the inner earth looks like, I want to offer the Buddhist notion of Shambhala as an entry point to our understanding. The images below are depictions of the worlds that exist both within the earth and on higher planes of consciousness. (note: this are my words, as I interpret these images). Shambhala is both a modern Tibetan Buddhists based out of Colorado, as well as a mythical kingdom written about in ancient Tibetan texts, I am referring to the latter which you can see depicted in ancient images below.
Shambala is a Sanskrit word that means a “place of peace” or a “place of silence.” It is mentioned in Buddhist and Hindu texts. In Buddhism, it is specifically mentioned in the Kalachakra Tantra as a unique place that exists within our own planet. “Shambala is a kingdom where humanity’s wisdom is spared from the destructions and corruptions of time and history, ready to save the world in its hour of need,” a commentary of the Kalachakra Tantra states (Collective Evolution).
The Bon scriptures speak of a closely related land called Tagzig Olmo Lung Ring. The Sanskrit name is taken from the name of a city mentioned in the Hindu Puranas. The mythological relevance of the place originates with a prophecy in Vishnu Purana (4.24) according to which Shambhala will be:
Welcome to the energy of the full moon in Libra, which takes place on April 16th 2022. This full moon is extra powerful in that it arrives right after the Jupiter Neptune conjunction which is exact on April 14th. I speak in the podcast about both of these events, and how they are perfectly in sync to support us in remembering and embracing our energetic role in "Cosmic Justice."
The Jupiter Neptune conjunction takes place the sign of Pisces, once every 166 years. This conjunction will help us to see things more clearly, using our intuition and energetic knowing to move beyond the illusion and delusion of the physical world. This supports the the overarching theme of "Cosmic Justice" as we are receiving energetic downloads to enable us to move fluidly through the outdated structured and belief systems that are crumbling so as to be reborn. This conjunction will be felt from March through may 2022, peaking at or around the 14th.
The full moon which is two days after the exact conjunction adds more nuance and power to the energy of "Cosmic Justice". Libra is traditionally the sign of the scales, balance, harmony, diplomacy, love and justice. As such it adds a grounding energy to the ephemeral conjunction. The Libra full moon will help us to put into action and belief in the 3d world all the downloads we get from the Jupiter Neptune conjunction. Perfect!
As an extra bonus for the Jupiter Neptune conjunction so close to the Libra Full Moon I wanted to offer an oracle reading with my brief you tube video. You can find that below. Enjoy :)
Welcome to the first new moon of the astrological new year! This year not only has the potential to be the most inspirational and transformational yet, but it also comes ripe with the invitation to clease, release and rebalance.
Luna is conjoined the sun (as always during a new moon) in Aries. We also have Mercury and Eris in Aries, supporting us in forward movement for positive and ultimately (many months down the road) revolutionary changes.
The primary focus of this podcast is acquainting us with Goddess Eris. She is both a recently discovered semi dwarf planet. Her discovery led the astronomical community to demote Pluto, a planet recognized as holding power in our solar system for a very long time, to a dwarf planet. I introduce a lens that we might look through to get a glimpse at the broad and oh so necessary power of the divine feminine as found in Eris. Also a nod to Pluto, who is unaffected by the idiosyncratic and go preserving moves of patriarchy/humanity.
The myth that we commonly know of Eris is that she was the only Goddess not invited to a wedding of the Gods (Peleus and Thesis) yet she showed up anyhow. Not admitted when she showed up, she didn't make too much of a raucous, she simply threw a golden apple into the crowd with the words "For the fairest".
This spell of sorts caused the three goddesses present who felt they were legitimately the most beautiful (Hera, Aphrodite and Athena) to fight amongst themselves in an ego driven state, starting a battle that ultimately launched the Trojan war. Was Eris responsible for starting the war? I offer, No. Rather, it was the exposed ego of the squabbling goddesses that threw things into chaos. Eris, was simply pointing out the loss of unity consciousness among the gods and their ego & patriarchally leaning ways. She is here with us now to support us in retiring to unity consciousness. More on that in the podcast above!
Finally get ready for rebirth with the Sacred Earth Retreat!
I am happy to be able to offer a live in person retreat at Seeding Reciprocity retreat center this May 20-22, 2022!
