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!
