Our greatest work is integration

Ra Ma

I trust the Aquarius Full Moon has revealed your wild Truth and perhaps genius potentials to birth in your life. What is becoming more and more clear is that in 2019 we have been stripped to hang on the hook like Inanna for a reason. When we make space in our lives, we create an opportunity to experience something fresh, something perhaps we never even visioned.

This lunar cycle, beginning back with the Leo New Moon, has introduced a theme of great love, of ascended love. And as the seeds of this love are nourished and nurtured, what becomes most clear is that which we already know. To experience anything in the outer world, we must first experience it from within. A union of the Divine Feminine and the Divine Masculine must come from within before we may experience that in our personal lives and in the collective. Our greatest work is integration.

Our current cosmic weather is supporting this. The Aquarius Full Moon also illuminated the polarity of how important it is for each one of us to radiate from our personal creativity and brilliance, while also being deeply connecting to the fabric of humanity through community and the collective.

We are reminded again and again to bow to the heart, to allow the heart to rise above the head, staying connected to our personal time travel devices. And the high intellect of Aquarius offered the space to mentally digest the great transformations we have undergone this year thus far. We may ask ourselves, what cultural norms do we need to break free from?

This is a lunation to feed all that makes your heart radiate and expand. To find ways to integrate the lost and hidden parts of self. To honor the beauty of all that is around you. And to continually be brave, to be a disruptor to the outdated paradigms by claiming true authenticity and sovereignty.

This week we have threaded ceremony throughout the sacred Land of Avalon. It has been so special to anchor back to this Land that has held me throughout my entire adult life. I am so grateful to be here and continually blown away by the magick that is available here. As the mystic Dion Fortune said, 'Glastonbury has ever been the home of men and women who have seen visions. The veil is thin here, and the Unseen comes very near to Earth.'

The Aquarius Full Moon also brought us through the Lunar Gate of Lughnasadh, and our harvest is ready to enjoy. May you be filled with a bounty of all that enriches and nourishes your heart beyond your capacity to dream, bringing love and beauty to the core of who you are. May you claim your sovereign authority as the Queen and King of your divine blueprint, on behalf of your personal integration, your ancestral healing, and all of humanity.

Full lunar blessings from the Isle of Avalon,

Portals of Prosperity

Ra Ma

The astrology this moonth takes us to the depths of our hearts and in those depths we have the ability to rise higher and higher. I often share the significance of one of the Ancient Daoist teachings, that the heart is literally seen as the one organ through which are able to traverse time and space. This means that our hearts are a time travel device.

I write these words to you from the heart chakra of the Earth, the Isle of Avalon as I prepare to welcome a potent group of women for an eleven day pilgrimage. This is my third year of offering an annual pilgrimage and has become the foundation of my work, as I find this work essential to the cosmic evolution of our Earth, our lineages and our bodies. There is something so powerful about being on these sacred sites with a group of intentional and aligned people, like clear quartz crystals.

As I write these words I am literally sitting on the crossing of two dragon ley lines, known at the St. Michael and Mary lines, which I refer to as the Archangel Michael and Mary Magdalene lines. The energy here is rich, and now that the Lion's Gate portal fully open, all on Earth are able to receive an abundance of lightcodes from the star Sirius. I am able to feel the palpations stronger than ever. I have been weaving in and out of this land for the past sixteen years, and know that Avalon will always be one of my soul homes on Earth.

On August 11th, Jupiter will move forward while Uranus will move retrograde, creating a frequency of forward momentum in our lives, while we are also being asked to be open to radical changes that must come from deep within. On August 14th Venus will conjunct the Sun and a rebirth of the Goddess of Love will ignite our hearts and a whole new 8 year cycle of prosperity and potential! On August 15th we have a truly abundant love filled Full Moon that is so juicy. My prayer for you is that you utilize these activations for your greatest benefit.

Humanity is going through such great change, and although at times it seems desolate, we are doing the important work of clearing our ancestral lineages, which is essential to further our spiritual growth. Allowing yourself to clear the old grief patterns is essential. Falling in love like never before with the Earth is essential.

May your harvest be filled with a bounty of all that enriches and nourishes your heart beyond your capacity to dream. May you claim your sovereign authority as the Queen and King of your divine blueprint. The Lion’s Gate opens for you to receive ancient and intergalactic codes of wisdom for these times. The Lion’s Gate is an activation when the star Sirius, known in Ancient Egypt as Sopdet, would rise before our Sun in the morning. Sirius is a special star that is a great teacher to Earth and all of Her beings. I have a deep starseed connection to Sirius and braid these frequencies into my craft.

I am holding your prayer requests here within the veil of Avalon. Please feel free to keep messaging them my way if more arise.

Beauty Codes for Humanity

Ra Ma

Venus day blessings dear One,

August is a month of beauty codes streaming in from the cosmos, as Venus, the goddess of love is a shining star in the astrology of this month. The Venusian realm is one of creativity, harmony, sensuality, the art of relationship, beauty and culture. Venus teaches that human liberty depends on an intimate relationship with the natural world.

Foundation is everything, and it is essential to cultivate any partnership from a nourished well. The Venusian teachings are one of self love and self care. A true Queen, and a true King is a being who is of service and devotion to their community. Many stories and fables have shown us royalty who have gone sour, yet true leadership is the willingness to give consistently with the love of an open heart.

First to serve self, to give to oneself with the love and devotion you long for is essential. To unite the divine masculine and the divine feminine within. To truly care and tend to the self, so that from this rooted and grounded space, you may give to others. From this solid foundation there is an ability to enjoy life, to savor the pleasures and the beauty that abound. And to create! Create, oh creator!

nile.jpg

Throughout most of the month, Venus, the Sun, Moon, Mars and Juno all align in Leo, weaving a story of the birth of new love, of fated love, of destined love and partnership. Love between lovers, friends, business partners and children are all emphasized. There is so much potential, particularly with Uranus in Taurus activating opportunities for radical changes!

Next Thursday the Lion's Gate portal opens up, with Venus offering Jupiter's expansive gifts as Sirius rises on Earth. Sirius is a fixed star that offers many wisdom teachings to our planet. As we approach the Aquarius Full Moon, the Sun and Venus will come into direct conjunction, distilling more love notes from this glorious giver of creativity, partnerships of all kinds, pleasure and sensuality.

We are also in the midst of the gate of Lammas, also known as Lugnsadh, which peaks into this month's Full Moon. This is the Summer cross quarter festival, a time of feasting and celebrating the great Grain Mother. In ancient Celtic times this was when tribes would come together, particularly at sacred trees, holy wells, hilltops or ancient cairns.

She who is seed, she who is womb, she who is soil, she who is the Provider of Life, she who is the regenerative power. . .again, we are reminded as the Wheel of Life turns that we are renewed by death. . .life, death, life, again and again.

This is a time to collect seeds which can be saved and planted next Spring. It is a time to relish the sunshine. It is a time to gather and process our own inner harvest, the fruits of our active phase manifest in the outer world. We are reaping both physically and metaphorically.

This is a natural season to pilgrim, and is why three years ago I began stewarding an annual pilgrimage this time of year. In just a week we are gathering at the sacred wells of Avalon and Cornwall, at ancient sacred stones, traversing the dragon lines that are part of the Earth's energetic matrix. If you have particular prayers that you would like shared at these sites, send me a message and I will bring your offerings on our journey in confidence.

August bestows so much potential to honor the juiciness of life, where we may wed our human creativity with Nature in a true love affair. May you celebrate the art of living. May you live with elegance. May you walk in beauty.

Rebirthing

Ra Ma

This Eclipse season has stripped each one of us down to all that is essential.  We are in a cauldron of alchemy, and our transformation is still in effect.  As we culminate July's Eclipse portal, the Lion's gate opens today, coming on the heels of the Mayan calendar's annual day out of time on July 25th.

The Lion's Gate opens each year as the heliacal rising of Sirius, a bright blue star, that some believe is an essential key to the story of humanity and our Earth.  Many cultures around the Earth are deeply connected to Sirius namely the Mayan and the Ancient Egyptians.  The Sirius stargate opens as the zodiac is in Leo, opening royal courage, resilience and radiance for all of humanity.  This energy amplifies each year from the 8th of August to the 12th of August.  Being on sacred portals of the Earth, near water are beautiful ways to access this abundant energy.  

In honor of this special time, I am offering a Rebirthing workshop tonight at West Asheville yoga, where we will clear our subconscious stories. We are going deep, while diving into the portal of the heart. A long gong will seal this practice, all levels and abilities are always welcome.

We are on a sacred journey of bounty as we look towards next Wednesday's New Moon, when Mercury stations direct. If you are in Asheville, please come circle up with us Tuesday night in my temple living room on the Dark of the Moon. Venus enters Leo on Saturday bringing hearth and warmth to all of our social and loving exchanges. As we are wringing out from a very wet Cancer season of eclipses, it is time to integrate and hold to our most potent and wildly blissful visions that will create the New Earth.

With devotion

Ra Ma

In an astrology session with a client earlier this week, the affirmation that came through was that it was time for her to claim every act of her life as an offering of devotion to the Goddess. And I wish the same for you too! Goddess/God, whatever you call the Source of all of Creation needs your devotion now more than ever. Our true mastery is to embody and anchor this devotion now on Earth. Our Earth needs this now more than ever. Humanity needs this more than ever.

The astrology of these times is all about stepping up and taking accountability. In that journey, many of us are being challenged to stand our ground. We are tested with situations that give us the opportunity to become more firm and clear. Some believe the more aligned they become, the easier life is supposed to be. However, the more aligned you become with the Otherworld, the greater the tests, as you have a greater capacity to hold more.

The Capricorn Lunar Eclipse on Tuesday, July 16th at 5:38 pm EDT will illuminate our greatest Truth. Saturn, the karmic South Node (our past struggles, gifts and where we get stuck), Pluto and the Full Moon are all in the energy of Capricorn, with Pluto and the Moon right next to one another. The Truth will be on center stage, while shining a light on the North Node (our collective destiny), the Sun and Venus in Cancer. Eris, the goddess disruptor will square the Nodes of fate, offering challenges and even more opportunities for growth. Neptune retrograde in Pisces offers us an ability to see where we have not been clear and where it is wise to make adjustments. We may trace this Eclipse back to January 16th for a greater connection to this story we are weaving.

We were made for these times. We are enough to be here. Each one of us has particular gifts and talents that are required to inspire humanity into right relation with Mother Earth. We are letting go of the spaces our frequency is not serving, so that we may be steered in the appropriate direction where we are of true need. And our trust in the process is essential.

In this eclipse portal I am offering a meditation and long gong on Saturday in Hendersonville at YAM. During an eclipse, time speeds up, and hidden doorways reveal themselves. 'Your guide to thrive' is a gift I've created to assist you during this season. I am also offering 18% off all one on one sessionsfor the month of July with code ECLIPSESEASON. The gates for the Women at the Well pilgrimage close July 15th. An intimate group of us are coming together to weave a deep healing that will be dedicated to the feminine Heart of humanity.

These are Sekhmet times. These are times to be in our courageous Truth and to stand for what authentically we know and feel at all times. Even when it may not make logical sense. Sekhmet is known for the power to heal and the power to destroy. She is an Ancient Egyptian goddess that is often misunderstood and quite often feared. Isn't it interesting that the truth tellers are often misunderstood and feared?

 

Hymn to honor Sekhmet
by Nicki Scully

Lion-Hearted Lady of the Solar Ray,
dwelling within the realm of Light. . .
we ask to blend with your powers
of Courage, Strength and Honor,
so we may reclaim the Beauty back
to our earthly Life.
Oh Great Goddess, devourer of time,
destroyer of illusion!
Help us clear the destructive and
heavy stagnant patterns,
within our body and mind.
Bring Life, Vitality, and Willfulness
to our Soul Destiny,
and Joyful Healing to our Hearts.
Great Sekhmet. . .we greet your Glory,
this day in Gratefulness.

☥☥☥ Resurrection, rebirth, and renewal are yours ☥☥☥

Ra Ma

How are you doing this Eclipse season? I am finding this to be a time of letting go, while being given many opportunities to find humor and brightness in the full on weirdness that is emerging. Eclipses bring Truth. Truth that we need to see, know and feel. The Full moon mid month is certain to reveal more clarity through truth.

During an eclipse, time speeds up, and hidden doorways reveal themselves. 'Your guide to thrive' is a gift I've created to support you during this season. You will find a link to it on the homepage of my website. I am also offering 18% off all one on one sessions for the month of July with code ECLIPSESEASON.

A month from now I'll be traveling to the UK for the Women at the Well pilgrimage. I can feel the power in my bones that we will weave, as this pilgrimage opens up a gate to tap into the breadth of emotions, creating a ripple through time and space that offers healing to the heart of Woman across humanity. Given all of the growth of 2019, many of us are in great of a sacred pause. And to do so at one of the holiest wells on Earth is a true gift.

IMG-6499.JPG

Resurrection, rebirth and renewal are yours in this year of 2019, particularly in July’s potent Eclipse portal.

We are stripping away all that no longer serves with Saturn, the Karmic South Node and Pluto in Capricorn. This Eclipse portal is shedding light on our karmic curriculum and that which is ready to be sealed. This powerful Capricorn conjunction is highlighted with July’s Eclipses.

Foundations we’ve relied upon are being shaken beyond our imagination. Intense is the new normal. And as we are shedding we are also welcoming wide open, bright possibilities. It is exciting as at any given moment a bouquet of bounty may be bestowed.

Neptune in Pisces is offering a higher heart centered vision if we are willing to see through the mists, into the great realm of Spirit. These times require devotion to our Highest Truth, self care, prayer, offerings and daily practice. As we are all in our own version of free fall, it is through a daily devotion that we may claim some footing.

Giving gratitude for all that is working is essential. Welcome positivity. Be wide open for your wildest dreams to seed an ocean of possibilities. Channel Isis as Queen of Rebirth. Imagine her regenerative powers being offered to you as a salve during these times. Feel the power in the potential. Tap your own bones to awaken to your ancient ancestral mineral wisdom. And may you know that through this sacred weaving, we are eternally blessed.

The medicine in your bones

Ra Ma

The medicine in our bones is our ancestral heritage. As we are walking between worlds at this time, we are witnessing the end of an era, while a new is being birthed. It is only our intuition, our clarity of mind, and the medicine in our bones that may guide us. This medicine contains our rich ancestral stories, our visionary potential, and our curriculum.

The mineral kingdom is the record keeper of time and space. The stones carry an ancient wisdom that contemporary humanity is just beginning to remember, however we may look to the cultures that came before and how they used stones for marking astrological alignments, including how ancient temples were so carefully mapped out and crafted. As we awaken to the power of our bones, we awaken to our unique destinies.

Next Tuesday we open up a massive portal of potential with the Total Solar Eclipse in Cancer that is emphasizing karmic completion and the reclamation of destiny. During an eclipse, time can literally speed up, or timelines may dramatically switch. Eclipses bring Truth. Truth that we need to see, know and feel, despite how uncomfortable the results may be.

In last week's Venusian Love Notes I wrote about spiritual courage and the power of the heart to literally move us through time and space. The heart is also deeply connected to the mineral kingdom and our bones. 2019 is a time of great polarity that includes stripping and shedding, while also rebirth and renewal. This frequency calls for spiritual courage as it is a massive task to hold both polarities at once.

Honestly, I find myself moving from great trust to great resistance, and it takes an extra effort (thank goodness for a daily practice, resources and tools) to stay in the space of trust. In 2019 I have questioned every aspect of my life, my work and my practice. I have also asked why I chose to lead two pilgrimages abroad in such a potent cauldron of transformation.

I realize that in many ways travel and pilgrimage may seem frivolous in these times. What is required includes resources: time, money, strength and a departure from the familiar. However, when I dive into my the four chambers of my heart and my bones, I confidently know like a deep well that it is the power of these pilgrimages that is stirring up my own resistance. The doubt that surfaces not only gives an opportunity to clear old paradigms, old beliefs and old ways of being that the overculture programs humanity with, it also provides an opportunity to show the Otherworld commitment.

I believe we are all going through an immense rebirth this Eclipse season that encourages us to reflect on:

Where do we keep ourselves small and hidden?

Where do we shrink from rising to the occasion?

Where do we chose the old worn path, versus embodying our soul's calling?

And how may we flip this paradigm?

How may we be our most expansive and authentic selves in consensual reality?

How may we show up with our most present, and full being, even in the most challenging moments where a part of us wishes to collapse?

How may we be brave to choose the way forward that calls to us deep from within our bones, from the center of our heart, from our Truth?

Pilgrimage is multifaceted. It is a self knowledge journey that has the ability to refill your well, provide fresh insights into your life, clarity of destiny, while it is a meeting and a gathering of power from special spaces and places, including the Elements, the Land, and perhaps previous lifetimes. For those Women at Well who have a Call to return to Avalon, Stonehenge, Avebury and Cornwall, there is a particular frequency to drink and nourish as we deeply heal the emotional self, awakening to the beauty and magic of the Elements, the fae, the dragons, and the Ancient Stones. And for the visionary, expansive ones who are most adventurous, there is an opportunity to expand your psychic awareness and connect with star beings over Fall Equinox in the pyramids, ancient temples and power points of Egypt. The gates to both of these pilgrimages are closing by July 7th. You may email me direct for further inquiry.

I would love to stress the benefits of having a seasoned guide in sacred, Otherworldly spaces. To walk alongside the steward of the container on holy lands, you may settle in and relax, as someone else has your back. Each day on pilgrimage there are a multitude of offerings from current astrological influences, yoga, meditation, sisterhood council, specific knowledge about the Ancient Goddesses of the Land we are on, and earth based ritual woven with intuition and intention.

Linear time as we have known it is collapsing before our eyes. Our lives are changing and it is the medicine in our bones that will anchor us during these times. I invite you to circle up this Monday in honor of the Cancer New Moon Total Solar Eclipse. I am so grateful to land in your inbox each week, and in turn, I offer you a gift of 'Your guide to thrive' as a way to thrive cosmically during this time of great change. You will find this on my website homepage as you scroll down to the apothecary section. May it be of support, and ultimately a blessing for you and your lineage.

Spiritual Courage

Ra Ma

Venus day blessings dear One,

We welcome the zenith of the Sun with Midsummer in the Northern Hemisphere, and in turn, the return of the dark. Our sisters and brothers in the Southern Hemisphere welcome the return of the light with Winter Solstice. The solstices are times of great polarity offering a potential for attunement.

With Midsummer, the Sun is at the height of its power. We welcome the duality of all things, as we reach the turning point of the solar year, where the cosmic wheel stops and starts again. The dark creates rich, potent soil for new growth. We welcome the longest day of the year, knowing that once more the days will shorten. The outer energy begins to wane and the inner energy begins to expand.

Yogi Bhajan emphasized the importance of spiritual practice during Solstice, 'The Summer Solstice is one day when the sun is at its ecstasy and the power of prana is the maximum so that you can be enriched with that vital primal force so that your destiny can be rewritten.'

2019's astrology is all about stripping away that which no longer serves, a continuous process of shedding, purification and rebirth. Today, Neptune who has been on a journey in Pisces since 2011, turns retrograde. Part of what makes 2019 so intense beyond the foundations being rocked with Saturn, the Karmic South Node and Pluto in Capricorn, are the squares between Neptune in Pisces and Jupiter in Sagittarius. These squares make it very challenging to ascertain what is real.

These are times for deep soul searching and questioning. And these are times of complete faith. Trust in the process is essential. This Solstice I am in the midst of deep study and ritual with one of my mentors. We were blessed on the eve of Midsummer with this double rainbow, which came like a sign from The Otherworld to keep the faith alive.

64640efd-15d0-4cb9-bc55-5ed0c8efe106.jpg

These times are all about spiritual courage. The word courage finds it root from the Latin word, cor which means heart. We must have the ability to speak our truth by sharing our heart's essence. The Daoists view the heart as the one organ in the human body that allows one to travel through time and space. In Dagara cosmology the heart is like the soft bone of the body. . .the bones being our mineral element that tell our story, our most ancient and primal self.

What has been will most likely no longer be. We are all stretching and growing to new heights. These times are excitingly beautiful and each moment asks us to embody spiritual courage. My prayer for you as you step through this gateway of initiation, is that you find your way within the beauty way, with spiritual courage. With renewed faith may you enact right action and trust the process. We need you now more than ever!

Midsummer blessings,

Ra Ma

Awakening the Ancestral Songlines

Ra Ma

As the Sun peaks and the astrology amplifies, I am imagining that this week has been as intense for you as it was for me.  Almost every astrologer I know is calling the current landscape to be volatile.  The pressure is on.  Time is speeding up and the rug has been pulled out from under our feet. 

We are free falling and at the same time rapidly transforming.  As we find ourselves at the midpoint of the year, we are peaking in this intense astrology.  If you have any luminaries, planets or asteroids in 18-22° in your natal chart, you are most likely feeling this astrology to the bone.

IMG-9385.JPG

Now is the time to allow whatever wishes to fall away to do so.  This process of surrender ultimately offers a beautiful opportunity of immense gifts.  When we strip away, we make space for renewal.  The Otherworld, the realm of Spirit is calling to us during these times to awaken to the work of our ancestral lineage, to clear the old paradigms with courage.  

2019 is a mineral year where we have the opportunity to activate the medicine stored deep within our bones.  We are awakening the ancestral songlines.  The songlines are an aboriginal concept of the dreaming track that is recorded through song, art, dance, stories and other forms of creativity.  The aboriginals view our waking world as the dream world, and our dream world as the waking world.

The Women at the Well pilgrimage will offer a profound sacred space for us to gather in sisterhood as we sing our ancestral songlines back into being.  The gates to this special pilgrimage to the sacred Isle of Avalon, Avebury, Stonehenge and Cornwall will be closing in the next few weeks.  If you are on the precipice and would love to connect please email me direct.  This Sunday we will gather in our first virtual council.  The prayer is that each one of us will activate the medicine in our bones with Mother Earth, the sacred holy springs of Avalon and the ancient stones.

Tonight we will join in community at West Asheville Yoga for a Deep Meditation and Long Gong in honor of the Full Moon on the rise.  Please come join us!  We will dive into the current cosmic weather and how to navigate this Full Moon with good medicine.

You are the living holy Temple

Ra Ma

I am writing to you from a deep immersion with one of my beloved mentors, Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes.  This is my second year studying with her, and I am immensely grateful for this experience, as it is authentic and expansive.  

Astrologically we have all been going through so much transformation in 2019, that the actual word transformation is becoming quite cliche.  Now that we are at the midpoint of the year, there is an opportunity to reflect on what we have learned and where we are going.  I believe it is essential to reflect as we have a potent full Sagittarius Strawberry Full Moon coming, soon followed by Summer Solstice and July's Eclipse season.

In the light of the zenith of the Sun and all things blossoming in your life,  I'd like to invite you to recommit to, or to begin your conscious journey of self care.  I work with a group of womxn, called the Adi Shakti Coven and each May we immerse ourselves in the topic of self care.  It is the peak of Spring as we  begin to look towards Summer, when so much is buzzing Nature, that we too are buzzing in our lives.

You are the living, holy temple.  The reality is that you are not able to fully serve any other being on this Earth unless you embody a path of self care.   Today, Dr. Estes said, 'To be in your power as a healer, you have to remain disciplined.'  Self care is discipline, and after hearing her wisdom, I am reinvigorated to speak to this topic, as it is true that many of us have not been taught how to care for self.  There are so many layers to self care, however today I wish to simply offer you what is the backbone of my self care practice. 

Begin each day with a spiritual practice, which could include prayer, meditation, breathwork, yoga, journaling.  A practice that you can commit to, as an act of self discipline.  Cleanse yourself as a part of this practice, and in doing so, work with the water element to fully renew you.  Allow the water to clarify you physically, emotionally, psychically and spiritually.  Give thanks to your ancestors each day.  Commit to drinking at least 2 liters of clean, filtered water, while nourishing your body with foods that you know you digest well.  Make sure that you spend time outdoors daily, breathing long, deep breaths, and finding the beauty that surrounds you in Nature.  Even in any urban environment we may find the force of Nature.  Before you go to bed each night, rewind the tape of the day, forgive those who hurt you, and learn from your mistakes.  Give thanks for the gifts that bestow your life.

For those seeking a deep dive into self care, I invite you to watch this video I created today about how pilgrimage will transform your life.
