Truth as salve

Ra Ma

I invite you to dive into this video: Truth as Salve.  For these times we need a salve for all the wounds coming up to the surface.  In this video I explore Truth as a salve, sovereignty, healing grief, Chiron ingressing into Aries and why you should be crafting a vision board this weekend if you already haven't.  I invite you take about 18 minutes out of your day to connect deeper as together, we are building a new paradigm that serves all.  Also, I mention the pilgrimage I am stewarding this August.  You may learn more about the Grail and the Goddess by visiting this link.

🌹13: code for a paradigm shift

 Falling in love with Gaia  Glastonbury 2017 pilgrimage  on a Venus Day standing atop Burrow Mump, a place where the Mary and Michael ley lines intersect.

Falling in love with Gaia Glastonbury 2017 pilgrimage on a Venus Day standing atop Burrow Mump, a place where the Mary and Michael ley lines intersect.

I believe Friday the 13th was hijacked many moons ago so that we feel an imprint of fear on this day.  In fact, so many sacred moments in time and spaces on our Earth were hijacked for these exact reasons. As we travel the terrain we find many churches on intersections of ley lines that were holy spaces for the old religions, tended with love and care.  Here in the United States many of our cities are built on Native American sacred grounds. We have been living under a culture amnesia and Uranus in Taurus (more to come in future Venusian love note editions) is about to wake us up in a fierce way.

As we shift the paradigm, may we welcome this day of the Goddess in a conscious way.  She is We, and all are welcome at the table of the Goddess. We are building a new paradigm that serves all.  

13 is significant to the Goddess as we have 13 moons each calendar year, and therefore menstruating women have 13 lunar cycles each year.  The blood transports our nourishment and our vitality, while containing the imprint of our personal stories. And like a woman shedding, the moon sheds.  This weekend we enter the Dark phase of the Moon, in preparation for the Aries New Moon Sunday night at 9:57 pm EST.

The Aries New Moon lives up to the imprint that each one of 2018 has offered thus far.  It is powerful and profound. Our intentions have the momentum of Mercury’s wings, as the hermaphrodite God goes direct this Sunday in Aries.  Also this New Moon has the powerhouse transpersonal planet Uranus in Aries tightly conjunct, shaking and waking us up to our destiny.

This lunar energy is about an inner revolution that we are being asked to seed as Chiron is in his final karmic degree of completion in Pisces.  Chiron will dip his toe in Aries next Tuesday April 17th. This is very significant, as we are in the cauldron of transformation, facing a tipping point in our ability to make great change, to go to the roots of our identities.  And we are sealing a 7 year cycle with Uranus in Aries. Since 2011 each lunar cycle in Aries have sparked a Uranian desire to become agents of radical change in our own lives, and this is the last opportunity to ride this energetic current for roughly 80 years.

Earlier this week, my friend Constance sent me a photo of this beautiful Passion flower growing on her land, in Luc Sur Aude, Southern France.  We will stay with her for a week on the Grail and the Goddess pilgrimage this August. Constance has over 300 acres of organic olive trees and an abundance of herbs including lavender, rosemary, and thyme.  When I met Constance we immediately felt a connection. She grew up in a Waldorf family and both of her parents are Eurythmists. She is an artist and very passionate about the stewardship of Mother Earth. 

At Castillou the rose is their symbol of sovereignty.  It is as if Mary Magdalene herself has brought us here.  It feels so appropriate that this Passion Flower burst into bloom this week and that Constance sent a photo of this flower.  Passionflower dissolves nervous tension and there is always a leap of faith required of each participant when she commits to join a global pilgrimage.  

All of the primal fears rise to the surface when you commit to great change and transformation. The primal imprints of fear, lack of self worth, and insecurities have the great opportunity of being stripped away during a life altering pilgrimage where you are removed from the day to day distractions.  And in these times, this work is necessary.

Passionflower essence invokes spiritual insight and I feel this essence goes hand in hand with the energies of the Aries New Moon.  We have the ability to anchor in a new foundation for the next 28 ½ days and through the Wheel of the Year, as this moon in the beginning of a new astrological year.  

My prayer is that each one of us may commit to living life from the highest integrity, so that we may consciously root a new paradigm for our generations to come.  The views of reality we are spoon fed through media are so old, so outdated, so stale, so apocalyptic, and humanity is so much more than these narratives

The Aries New Moon supports wishes around blazing new trails, authenticity, autonomy, courageous leadership, vitality and a healthy brain.  I invite you to write your intentions on the exact time of the New Moon--Sunday night at 9:57 pm or after. Write at least 2 and up to 10, and as you craft your words, consider more than just this lunar cycle, consider entirety of the next 13 moons.  If you are feeling the Call to join our Grail pilgrimage, scribe it to be so!  Email me for any questions you may have about our epic journey.  

Venusian New Moon blessings of prosperity and vitality,

Ra Ma

a compass of connection

Ra Ma

I am falling in love all over again with our Earth.  This past week I have spent more time with family, more time in my garden harvesting plants for medicine, and more time in Nature walking in the forest, bathing in running cold water.  As this week is coming to a close, I am knee deep in learning. I am writing to you in the midst of a four day workshop on Stone Medicine, sitting with Jeffrey Yuen, an 88th generation Daoist priest.  

I am digesting such high level information and what I find myself focusing on the most is perhaps clearly obvious.  Spirituality is based on cultivation, as any committed practice develops frequency. We only have something to offer, when we have spent time in cultivation.  Practice is everything, and cultivation is about authentically committing.  

Once again I am falling in love with the stones, and like any spiral I am finding myself at a different place on this journey of life.  At the age of 7 I lived in Germany and in school we quite often went on incredible field trips. I will never forget driving to Belgium to a museum to see large dinosaurs like T Rex and Brontosaurus reconstructed from their bones.  When I close my eyes, I can still see the way light entered through the windows and how the shadows cast in the spaces where light was hidden.

It was then I wished more than anything to be a paleontologist. However, what came home with me from the gift shop of the museum was a piece of amethyst the size of my palm.  After the museum we ate Belgian waffles from a stand outside and I began to make friends with my new stone.

Stones have been an essential part of my life.  I can mark almost any important moment in my life through a specific stone that someone has given me or that appeared in that time and space.  It was 2 years ago when I chose to consciously work with stone medicine as a part of my healing practice, and from there the Alchemy Sessions and the Ra Ma Kaur apothecary were born.  The medicine of stones is vast, deep and profound. However, like any path it requires cultivation.

Stones have the ability to be programed to store information that we may wish to access in future timelines.  Stones can be transformers, harmonizers, or assistants in our journey of life. We can relate to them as a geological nerd or a new age healer.  We can connect with them through their physicality, their energetics, their stories of lineage, or our intuition.

Ultimately what is the most important in our journey on this wild, beautiful Earth is the simple connection to Her, and stones remind us of this.  Stones are literally the roots, the foundation of all other medicine on Earth. As we connect to the Earth through the soles of our feet, we are activating a compass of connection.  We need the Earth and the Earth needs us. There is a mutual reciprocity that is essential to all life on this planet. We can see this reciprocity in other forms-- from parent and child, teacher and student, healer and client.  

The simple connection to our Earth is everything.  I invite you to explore this sacred connection to Earth simply barefoot and standing tall, lying on a blanket while blowing dandelion wishes with your child, or in quiet meditation. 

Finally I invite you to venture out tomorrow to the Burton Street Peace Garden's for their Early Plant Spring Sale.  We got a sneak peek this week and the stunning green magic is waiting to be rooted in your backyard!  Support your local community,  your pollinators and fall in love with the Earth while doing so!

a mystical pink moon

Ra Ma

0065febd-e2b4-45ec-b3ee-b261a45d452b.jpg

The Libran Pink Moon comes to a peak on Saturday morning at 8:37 am EST.  This is a time of culmination and fruition from the seeds we cast two weeks ago, with the Pisces New Moon.  However as life cycles and spirals we may look back to a year ago, to the Aries New Moon and the journey we have walked since then.

The Moon in “We are” Libra is seeking balance and justice while opposing the Sun in courageous “I am” Aries is here to emerge and express.  This lunation is showing us with clarity what is working and what is not working in our lives, particularly in our relationship to ourself and with others.  The archetypes of Venus and Mars are activated through the Libra and Aries lenses. Mars is very energized in this Full Moon so it’s essential we consciously work with our will, vitality, anger, rage and repressed emotions.

A theme of 2018 is that if it’s not a hell yes, it's a hell no, and that is highlighted with this Full Moon.  Chiron is broadcasting in his final degree of Pisces all that we need to complete as we begin anew in the shamanic fire walk of self expression.  This first full moon after the Spring Equinox invokes the Jewish festival of Passover and our current astrological alignments are ideal for the spirit of this festival.  

Through the cleansing of the hametz, which can be seen as the hot air of the ego and all that does not serve, we may create space for liberation in our lives.  We are consciously on a journey to move from the tight spaces, the places we box ourselves in emotionally, mentally, physically, socially, spiritually, and to create expansion.  However liberation is not enough without justice, peace and harmony. Through the Passover seder we embody the process of how we truly tell our journey, our stories. What we tell ourselves becomes what we magnetize.  Passover offers a moment in time to witness these narratives and then to edit and delete as we see fit.

f2928318-0d9f-4412-a8aa-82996300c938.jpg

This mystical pink moon is offering each one of us our own personal miracle.  As the buds on the branches emerge, an awakening of hope springs forth and the vision crystallizes with maximized potential.  A miracle is available for all that you wish to birth for the astrological year to come, and the Aries New Moon mid April is the springboard where you may leap.  For now, it is the time to witness, to cleanse, to shed and to conjure clarity.

As we are on this path of Victory we must ask ourselves, What am I willing to sacrifice?  As we channel the High Priestess, the Universal Priestess we invoke sovereignty.  A system of healthy habits to engage with each and every day is essential for our path's precision, ranging from yoga, meditation, walking, grounding, earthing, breathing, smudging, chanting, praying and gratitude.  

I invite you to join me for weekly Kundalini yoga classes, monthly lunar circles, a June weekend retreat and a pilgrimage to Southern France this August.  You may learn more by scrolling down.  I'm available for Astrological Divination sessions or Alchemy Sessions, where stone medicine and sound healing meet.  Each of these sessions offer clarity, support and sanctuary. 

the cosmic egg

Ra Ma

Our transition into Spring has been intensely healing.  You’ve most likely looked some of your greatest wounds in relation to Source square in the eye, and perhaps endured them in your body too.  The hermaphrodite messenger god is visiting the Underworld as we are sealing our Chiron cycle in Pisces. This retrograde Mercury is working hand in hand with both Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn to teach us about power, control and authority in our lives, offering many opportunities to test our anger, rage, will and vitality.  In addition solar flares have been affecting our energetic and physical bodies.

The season of rebirth and renewal is upon us. As we consider this Mercury retrograde and completion of Chiron in Pisces cycle, deep healing is available to each one of us.  Each of these shifts ultimately lead us to Self Mastery.  

unnamed.jpg

The egg is a symbol of rebirth and fertility in Nature.  We may meditate on the Cosmic Egg of Life, which represents the masculine and the feminine, light and dark, expansion and contraction, conscious and unconscious, continuity and balance.  Potential, seed and promise are ripe.

The Earth is awakening and we may consider geomancy, also known as the meridians of energy that run through the Earth. These meridians can be referred to as dragon paths, ley lines or fairy lines.  The dragon is a power animal, that teaches through love, how to follow your own path with courage. They force you to grow into your destiny and duties, from a lower plane to a higher plane of mastery. 

As you continue on your great dharmic journey of self mastery in this season of Spring, this is a lovely time to shed the things you no longer need, to let go and to make space for all that you are passionate about.  

Inviting more green foods into your diet is essential to move the liver from Winter. With the Chiron completion in Pisces, Mercury retrograde and a few more days of solar flares this is an ideal time to meditate, practice pranayam, spend time alone, day dream and heal.  Cold showers, baths and drinking lots of live water will assist with your integration.

To continue on course, you may remind yourself, I welcome all profound blessings

the universal priestess within

Ra Ma

Tomorrow’s New Moon aligns at 9:11 am 27° Pisces invoking the mystic, the artist, the healer, the channel and the Universal Priestess that lives within all.  The current tides are shifting the Wheel of the Year. We are ending an astrological year as we have our final dance in Pisces. 

The key feature of this lunation is a conjunction of the Moon and Sun to Chiron.  We are being asked to face our greatest wounds around separation from Source, which tend to manifest as addiction, escapism and powerlessness.  We are being offered a period of reflection of what we have learned over the past 7-8 years as Chiron is about to shift from Pisces to Aries. 

This is the last new moon in a yearly cycle with the last new moon conjunct Chiron in the last sign of the zodiac in the last house of the zodiac. . .What work do we still have to do regarding our personal and collective healing to fully awaken?  

The path is about feeling all that we have denied.  This is the time to allow the emotions to flow. Work with water and give thanks for the magic of this element.  Feel the pain and suffering of all that we have attempted to suppress, and feel how this is reflected in the way we treat our Mother Earth.  

29134017_10155475033083861_2575829962019831808_n.jpg

This lunar cycle offers deep healing, reflection and a space for great closure as we prepare for the Rebirth of Spring.  We have the ability to awaken the mystic, the divine healer and the Universal Priestess within.  On March 20 at 12:15 pm EST we welcome the Spring Equinox and the shift of the Sun into Aries.

Spring Equinox, also known as Ostara offers a time to invoke balance between the inner and outer.  Day and Night are equal reflecting a balance of the inner world with the outer world. Every action has a reaction.  The Cosmic Egg represents the male and female, light and dark, expansion and contraction, conscious and unconscious, continuity and balance.  We are the potential, the seed and the promise. The dragon energy is waking up.

Traditionally, offerings of food and milk are left for the fairies and other spirits who live in and around rocks and are responsible for the fertility of the land.  Sacred hilltops are visited and picnics are enjoyed.

I invite you to stay focused with dream seeding, play, meditation and rest to expand into a state of conscious awareness for this is the Year of the High Priestess, where Self Mastery and Diamond Mind Consciousness are attainable.

🌹 she is WE 🌹

Ra Ma

To all the midwives, the wombones, the wild hearted, the she wolves, the mystics, the medicine makers, the soil workers, the chantreses, the wise ones, the healers, the lovers, the teachers, the artists, the mothers, the daughters and our beloved crones--

She is WE.  She stands for all aspects of life.  And she knows how to doula death. She honors all races, genders, creeds, religions, beliefs and possibilities.  There is more than enough for each of us to sit together with tenderness and grace at the table of plenty.  May we find more ways to practice deep listening, to link arms, and to honor each other’s hearts.

Each and every day is International Women’s Day.  We birth the world into being and we priestess the times of death.  We are rising from an epoch of deep slumber. We are the paradigm shifters.  We are the ones we’ve been waiting for!  It is an honor to stand alongside you!

Venus works her magic so that each one of us clearly knows what we value.  Now the moon is waning and the season of Spring is almost upon us. This an ideal time to literally clean out our physical lives. . .our  closets, basements and cars.

My daughter and I spent two hours today driving to donate items to Safe Inc, an organization that is committed to breaking the cycles of domestic abuse and violence.  We could’ve easily donated our haul to the Goodwill, just 8 minutes down the road. However, I’ve heard many stories about clothing sent to South Africa, piling up and causing environmental waste while distracting from the local cultural economy.  My commitment to my values pulled me in another direction and I did this as an offering to the beauty of Venus and her sacred day. 

Do you remember last Fall, when Jupiter entered Scorpio?  Scorpio is the archetype of the scorpion, the snake, the eagle and the phoenix.  Scorpio wishes for us to know our depths, to know our ability to transform. Jupiter in Scorpio expands our knowledge of self and does so while offering us a rare opportunity to change, to improve, to better ourselves and others.

On Wednesday, Jupiter began to retrograde and is now taking us on a deep space journey.  We are time traveling back to December 11th 2017. It won’t be until July 10th that Jupiter will turn direct once more.  Each decision we have made based on our conscious evolution since last December is up for review and revision. Jupiter rules both Pisces and Sagittarius, so this transit is teaching us about the values of justice, truth, compassion and connection.

If we are willing to delve into the unconscious and explore the hidden shadows, we then have the ability to bring forth what is hidden from the recesses.  This deep work is supported by mystery studies, traveling to mystical places, consciously exploring shadow work, deep intensive therapy and intimacy practices with self and others.  This is the time to gather with your community in your sacred circles for a supportive descent.

As always, I am here to anchor and assist you on this journey.  I love supporting people one on one through astrological mentoring, soul coaching and alchemy sessions.  Next Thursday we gather in my temple living room to call in the Pisces New Moon.  Our first spiral of the Adi Shakti Coven is proving to be a supportive and safe circle to do the deep inner journey work of Jupiter in Scorpio.  Women are truly transforming their lives and it is awe inspiring! If you would like to be notified when the application process opens up for Spiral two, please message me.  In June I will offer a Welcoming Midsummer Retreatin Hot Springs. . .the details and the ability to sign up will be available next week! 

And the women are coming forth to answer the Call to walk Her footsteps on a deep ancestral healing pilgrimage in Southern France.  I invite you to step into the journey with me on The Grail and the Goddess. In the spirit of acknowledging the complexity of our times and the privilege some have more than others, I am grateful to offer one partial scholarship for a woman of color who wishes to join us.  If you feel this is you, email me directly to apply.  I will accept applications now through April 30th.

It is my deepest prayer to craft and curate these offerings to assist in your cosmic evolution.

⭐ dreams illuminated ⭐

Ra Ma

What the Virgo Full moon has illuminated is all that needs your healing, your protection, your care and your devotion.  The stellium in Pisces opposing this Virgo Full Moon at 11 degrees 22 arc minutes we weaves a strong narrative of clearing out the ancestral stories of our past and opening up to the new possibilities to come.  The past Solar Eclipse New Moon aligned us for these actions and Virgo wishes for us to get to work in the physical realms.

This is a major time of diving deep and healing in multidimensional, dreamy, oceanic, Neptunian Pisces.  On Sunday the Sun and Neptune meet up while the three planetary bodies of Venus, Mercury and Chiron are conjunct.  This energy continues the exploration of selfless non-duality amidst a watery realm of reflection that communicates our loves and our wounds.  

A season of great cleansing and a time when ceremony is a salve is upon us.  Splash in a ritual bath, sing to a sacred fire, log your visions and daydreams as you call in the great celestial healing available.  And, give thanks.  Give thanks for this beautiful planet that provides ever so abundantly.

The details with of the Grail and the Goddess Pilgrimage are ready to be revealed.  As these pilgrimages require so much commitment and devotion, it has already been a labor of love to create the framework for our journey together.  This pilgrimage is truly going to fill the wellsprings of our hearts and our lineages.  Step into the journey with me.

With the wild nature as ally and teacher we see not through two eyes but through the many eyes of intuition. With intuition we are like the starry night, we gaze at the world through a thousand eyes. The wild woman is fluent in the language of dreams, images, passion, and poetry.
--Clarissa Pinkola Estes

May we  journey and dream together in all the ways that will nourish us in the necessary work needed to bring justice, balance and harmony on Earth.  

Venusian blessings.

mutual reciprocity

Ra Ma

Despite the Gemini moon on this gorgeous Venus day, I am feeling quiet and called to go within and dream.  Dreams. . .the dreams have been so profound ever since the Sun went into Pisces on Sunday.  Each morning I am waking with the remnants of the dream world so tangible I feel the pulse and touch.

Our collective world continues to show us the massive shedding and shift we are in the midst of.  Violence, deceit, lies and let downs are the headlines.  What is surfacing from the great depths is how incredibly wounded the masculine is on Earth.  In honor of this I offer a poem by the wise poet Robert Bly.  May his work be a healing balm for the masculine in our times.  And may the wise men step up ready to lead in service.

Prayer for My Father

Your head is still

restless, rolling

east and west.

That body in you

insisting on living

is the old hawk

for whom the world

darkens.

If I am not

with you when you die,

that is just.

 

It is all right.

That part of you cleaned

my bones more

than once. But I

will meet you

in the young hawk

whom I see

inside both

you and me; he

will guide

you to the Lord of Night,

who will give you

the tenderness

you wanted here.

Ancestral healing is so ripe for these times.  We are all living our own version of a 100 years of solitude (please tell me some of you have read the great Gabriel Garcia Marquez).  The Aquarian lunation we are working within is urging each of us to connect consciously with our lineage.  

Now is the time to love up on the threads of our heritage.  We need to know where we have come from and we need to know where we are going.  Saturn in Capricorn’s charge for diamond mind spiritual maturity asks us to live with mutual reciprocity.  

To give thanks to the Otherworld, to make offerings to the Spirits that support our web of life is imperative.  Our offerings can be song, dance, art, flickering candles lit with intention, sacred scents, tears of grief and joy, our blood and hair, stories we shed, stones, honey, fermented beverages, pure homemade medicine and anything your ancestors loved.  Ultimately all of the Ancestors are all of our Ancestors.    

What is coming to light as we wax towards the Virgo Crow Moon in her full glory next Thursday is that it is time to heal and purify our lineages, to heal and purify our relations, to heal and purify our lives and to heal and purify our temples.  Virgo in her highest form is a great celestial mother that sees and knows all with great clarity.  Integrity as a living daily meditation would begin a revolution.  In turn each one of us would be able to show up as a clear channel in service of humanity.  Shall we rise? 

To assist you on the journey, join me for Kundalini Yoga classes each Sunday and Wednesday.  I'm offering the Saturn Sessions for one more week.  And I'm always available for private one on one sessions in person or virtually.  

The details of the Grail and the Goddess pilgrimage to Southern France are almost fully refined!  This journey is fully coming to life and witnessing the magic that is weaving it behind the scenes is humbling.  Please email if you are wishing to journey with us.  Space will be limited and I'm sending a special preview email to my inner circle.  

Venusian blessings,
Ra Ma

through the gates--earth dog mastery

Ra Ma

Hello dear one~

We have arrived through the Solar and Lunar Gates of Imbolc, through the Aquarian Eclipse portal and into the Chinese New Year of the Earth Dog.  As we emerge on the other side what is clear is that we are differen.  The energies have shifted in a way that is palpable.  

In order to make space or this new way of being, there is a major letting go with this Eclipse and this will continue th entire lunar month ahead.  o many of us are shedding in ways never imagined.  

We may be letting go of parts of us we thought were necessary for our self image or relationships that we thought were essential for our survival.  For many of us there is deep grief and sadness coming up to the surface.  

Mercury and Juno are communicating to us deeply about our relationships.  They are asking us o drop into rich communion with Sel.  ow is the time discern who and whom we make space for in our lives.  

ach one of us is being asked to awaken to the places we stay stuck in old paradigms.  We are receiving an opportunity to wake up and shake up with the Uranian quickening.  Uranus rules the Age of Aquarius so this is a wonderful time to make good friends with this archetype.

This eclipse is a major initiation into a new way of doing and being in ny and all elationships, evolutionary partnership are a mus!  This Chinese New Year offers a year to work on ur home live, ur amilies all whil in active in the great outdoors.  It’s a great year to commit to daily walks, and I am personally recommitting to that intention!

This next year favors new business ventures, major lifestyle changes, rewards, loyalty, generosity and selflessness.  Integrity and honesty are the values that lead to success under the Dog yea, as arth Dogs are stable, prudent and kind.

Ultimately dogs teach unconditional love so we are in an energy to deeply open our hearts to compassion. The 2018 year of Mastery goes hand in hand with the Earth Dog energy. Every dog needs a diligent and impeccable master.  Meet my dear friend Shadow who left this Earth plane 12 years ago, the previous year of the dog.  He was truly my best friend in every way possible, a wellspring of unconditional love.

Join me for a free class tomorrow in honor of the grand opening of my friend Heidi's store Earth Magick.  This store is located a couple of doors away from Dobra Tea and you will find it at 80 Lexington Ave.  We will be gathering from 11 am-noon with Kundalini Yoga, Meditation and Gong Sound Healing.

s we continue to walk through this lunation may you watch your language, creating intentionally with sacred words and sounds.  May this great shedding and seeding be a badge of honor ou may wear or the evolutionary growth of humanity.  is partial Solar Eclipse ay offer a urprising estiny that is far more grand than you ever expected!

I'll leave you with a personal meditation I've been holding in my heart since the wee hours of this past Wednesday. If each one of us lived with impeccable integrity, erhaps e would truly find ourselves in an evolutionary cosmic revolution.  Shall we rise to the occasion?

Aquarian New Moon Lunar Imbolc blessings.

🌘🌑🌒 lunar imbolc renewal 🌘🌑🌒

Ra Ma

In honor of Imbolc and preparation for the great eclipse activation we will receive on Thursday, I've been encouraging many to give things away, to clear out, to let go, to write down that which no longer serves and to burn or bury it.  I too have been clearing out fiercely.

Since the Capricorn New Moon I have been writing down what no longer serves me and have buried and burned these concepts.  A little over a week ago I cleaned out all of my desk drawers, our art space and many piles of paper.  Last night I found myself organizing my fridge and cabinets in my kitchen.  And this weekend I have plans to begin with my basement.

In that purging and cleansing I found myself sorting through computer files, deleting and organizing.  This photo is from an art installation from 2004, “Offering to the Fens” I created in my days at the Museum School of Fine Arts.  Living in Boston was one of the most challenging parts of my life, and this was an homage to rooting to my truth and authenticity, devoted and grounded to the Great Mother even in the bustling city of Boston.

30c88011-18d9-4336-a110-8b130a650e59.jpg

Imbolc is much like this.  There is a great stirring in the belly of the Mother.  This great stirring awakens the promise of all hope, potential and creativity.  Collectively we are at a Gate of Emergence, preparing for renewal.    

And so we continue our loving work of serving humanity and our Earth.  This Aquarius New Moon is aligning the collective destiny and dharma with the great Earth Mother asteroid goddess Ceres.  Ceres is all about caretaking, the abundance of the cultivated soil, the seasons, the harvest and nurturing.  She rules all major life cycles and is the Goddess of Womb and Tomb.

In our journey we must take greater care of self, of one another and our Mother Earth.  Perhaps you have been feeling deep emotions like grief, rage, anger and depression?  We are cleansing out so much.  Collectively it is obvious we still have great strides to accomplish in the realm of humanity.  

Many are still far from free.  Many live daily within old paradigms of oppression.  Ceres is asking us to face injustice.  What are we doing about it?  Where do we turn the other cheek?  Where is our responsibility in this?  As we let go of the old paradigms, it is time to be radical and invite in genius solutions.

Thursday’s Aquarius New Moon unites the South Node, Mercury, Juno, Moon and Sun all in Aquarius.  Genius solutions are possible!  Inspiration and insights of personal and collective renewal are available.  And this is Lunar Imbolc which invites the Celtic Triple Fire Goddess Brigid and her magic to come forth.

I invite you to close your eyes and imagine you stand before Brigid.  She has a well of the most pure water and scoops a seashell full of shockingly cold water over the crown of your head.  You are purified and cleaned immediately the life-giving bounty of blessings and love pour over you.

She then rings you in a circle of fire and lights a fire in your crown chakra.  You feel a tingling and stimulating of that point.  You feel your energy opening and expanding.  Your power to visualize clears and grows stronger.  You feel true inspiration and clarity.

May you take this vision into your New Moon, into your rebirth.  For now, continue with the ritual of Imbolc letting go, cleaning and clearing.  This is a phenomenal time to sweep, dust and air out on all levels--physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.
