Lunar Eclipse: Clear Vision
Welcome to the close of a quite intense eclipse cycle that began May 25 this year. That's just 4-5 weeks ago, and we will have experiences three (which is rare) eclipses in such a short time, just over 1 month = intense.
This final eclipse in Capricorn completes a larger Cancer-Capricorn eclipse cycle that began in July 2018. Cancer and Capricorn have an interesting dance, energetically that both opens us emotionally and calls us to take measured steps for the overall structuring of our world. In the past months we've each likely been emotionally impacted in some way, also we can feel the foundations shaking a bit. This combination of energies has been associated with impact and country/ world changing events. I discuss this in the podcast above.
For now,, it is potentially worthwhile not only to look back to events around May 25th this year 2020 but also to event in July 2018 for signs and signals of 'themes' .. for change.. to consider what was feeling like it needed to be shifted. We are meeting these enrages once again.
Hopefully with new eyes. Which brings me to the overarching theme of the podcast: Seeing WIth New Eyes. Yes. Our eyes see our world, but we are also energetic beings, able to intuit and feel the energies of our surroundings. We are being invited, we are being called to step up and into seeing clearly. Clear Vision. A vision that is not clouded by fear or hate or media. A vision that knows and feels 'truth', and responds only to the truth.
As I mention in the podcast, this ability to sense the energy of what we perceive is actually simply another sense. This is what many have termed the 'Sixth Sense'. Much like touch, taste or smell, we are wired for it. We are now being invited to strengthen that 'muscle'. As just like any muscle in our bodies, if sensing and reading energy is atrophied, it needs tone strengthened. This is how we will navigate the next years of our future towards betterment and rebalancing.
First, I invite you to enjoy the podcast above where we gather together as a community of light. Also, please share this with those whom you might feel would benefit!
Second, we will gather live to hold space for the closing of these cycles on July 5th. Not only the closing of the Eclipse season of 2020 which began on May 25th, but also to take a larger view of the Cancer-Capricorn cycle that began July 2018.
Simply sign up to be included in weekly emails and you will get the information to join us at 10am PST July 5th. Join the email list on this page.
In the interim between this post and the eclipse, we recently had an amazing day long gathering to celebrate summer solstice. You can find the recordings and information for the day-long retreat here.
All of these events are intended as an offering. Donations as you feel will go to the newly formed 501c3 nonprofit organization Seeding Reciprocity.
Solar Eclipse & Goddess Aine
Eclipse season 2020 is here! Can you feel the subtle but profound shifts? As I mention in the podcast for this event, were are in a "Ring of Fire" energy, supporting us to melt and shed old energies that don't really serve.
This can feel intense (especially at first!) but thankfully with the convergence of Solstice energy we have a 'cooling' transformational effect.
Summer Solstice (in the Northern Hemisphere) is the lightest and brightest day of the year. For the Druids and Calts, this day was ruled by Aine, Goddess of the Sun, Goddess of Fertility and Love, Goddess of the Fairy Kingdom. Aine was revere for her ability to lovingly and fiercely protect herself and the fairy kingdom. I include her myth and legend in the podcast above.
She as also understood to be the giver of grain and seed, the one who protects and communes with fairies. I love the image to the left, when I lookout it I can viscerally feel this fairy goddess calling in all of her tribe.
A tribe of elemental spirits that commune with and support the natural world. A tribe that we would be well suited to remember and seek companionship! In the podcast you will find them in full light bright energy. For this posting, I feel called to share the a bit more about Goddess Aine.
Aine is often viewed today as a Celtic goddess of love. But she was also a deity of wealth, sovereignty, and the summer. Her sensitive and joyful personality brought her many followers in the Celtic world. The heart of her cult was located in Limerick, Ireland, though her fame spread like the sun’s rays over many other regions.
Associations between Aine with Venus, Aphrodite, and any other love deity are vague. She was a very complex goddess. One may assume that the goddess of love would have had bright and happy myths surround her, however the legends about Aine have some dark but powerful aspects that I share in the podcast. I understand these to be stories of the Goddess' reaction and integration with patriarchy. Which thankfully is something that we aren now able to mend and heal.
In sync with Summer Solstice, I will be offering a full day online virtual retreat on June 21 from 9 AM to 4 PM. The event is free, you can donate is you feel called. It is offered to support Seeding Reciprocity, the nonprofit that will change how we view earth, land, water, fire, air, money and prana. You can pre-register for the online retreat here, as well as by clicking the image to the left.
Sun square Neptune happens June 11, 2020. Its effects will be felt the weeks before and after to say the least! Neptune is ephemeral, and points us to illusion and delusion so as to help us ultimately to see more clearly. The Sun is our external self, our ego, which is being invited to open up for healing and rearrangement right now.
While this square happens twice a year, this year is potent because of the eclipse energies and is guiding us deeper and deeper within, inviting and reminding us to return to the full embodiment of Divine Feminine and Masculine.
I share about the myth of the God Neptune and Goddess Salacia, God of fresh water and Goddess of salt water, respectively. These two invite us to remember the deeper aspects of our own inherent and divinely balanced masculine and feminine nature.
I also mentioned my upcoming Earth Goddess Retreat on June 21 2020. You can find more information here or by clicking the image below. The event is 100% free, all donations will go to the new 501c3 Seeding Reciprocity. More information is available by clicking the logo below.
We have two converging energies at the beginning of June 2020. The discovery of Comet Swan, as well as the ending/beginning of Venus' 18 year cycle, known as the Rose of Venus.
Comet Swan and the rebirth of lady Venus are combining to encourage us to trust ourselves, believe in our ability to create the lives we want to live and the world we want to see, and to do so with grace, balance and beauty. All of this is here as an energetic upgrade to the shifts we may be witnessing or experiencing in our world!
You can find the podcast above as well as a meditation.
Below is a quick video of the flower of Venus (also called pentagram of Venus) as well as a link to nonprofit I am launching today, Seeding Reciprocity. Hope to see you there :)
