the Great Celestial Healer

Ra Ma

As we approach the Virgo Full Supermoon which is exact Tuesday, February 19th at 10:53 am EST I wish to share with you an archetype of Virgo that is rarely spoken of, the Great Celestial Healer. Virgo often gets written off as neurotic, analytical, pessimistic and nitpicking.

However an elevated way of seeing Virgo is in her sovereign purity and the why behind that which she strives for. Virgo sees e v e r y t h i n g. Yogi Bhajan said to Virgos, you see everything and everyone naked, just don't tell them. Next Tuesday on the Supermoon the Great Celestial Healer will align with the Shaman of the Zodiac, Chiron, who will have just anchored into Aries. These two interstellar healers are offering us potent medicine.

Chiron in Aries will bring a Return for those born in 1968-1977. Chiron Return is the final of the four midlife activation transits that intend to purify each and every human so that they may live within their heart and authenticity. With Chiron in Aries we are moving into uncharted territory.

Chiron in Aries wishes for you to pioneer your wildest dreams into reality, to express your gifts with courage, to allow instincts and intuition to guide your way forward, to truly live authentically with the body as the Holy Temple. Chiron will offer each one of us a rebirth of identity, a soul retrieval.


The earthy Supermoon in Virgo will allow each one of us to witness all of the places within and without that need realigning. Where can we clear space in our lives to allow more magic to pour forth?

This Full Moon is conjunct Regulus, the Heart of the Lion in the Leo constellation, amplifying our courage, ambition and royal selves.  With the Milk Moon Mercury and Neptune pair up with a flowing energy to Venus conjunct Saturn. These four planets will create an alignment of spirituality, compassion, healing, and deep insights into the mystical realms.

Therefore this Full moon is a beneficial time to tap into the dream realm, work with divination and ceremony.  Even though we will be in the shadow of Mercury retrograde, you may also use this Full moon to get projects off the ground, especially if you planted seeds for them around the New Moon. 

May this initiation into a new shamanic journey and the revelation of the Virgo Milk Moon be of great benefit for you and your lineage.  In honor of the potency I wish to share this poem by Sappho: 

Awed by her splendor

Stars near the lovely
moon cover their own
bright faces 

when she
is roundest and lights
earth with her silver

Trust the Process

Ra Ma

We are on a steady build to the deeply healing Full Milk Moon lunation which will occur February 19th.  On that day Chiron will shift into Aries ushering in a whole new generation of healing around our identity as humanity.  The Aquarius New Moon gifted us with some special frequencies of growth that are still available to harness.  So yes, you still have an ability to cast your magic.  As we are building towards the Full Moon we are in a portal of possibilities. 

Perhaps you have witnessed that the astrology of 2019 is just as immense of 2018.  I know today you are feeling it with Mars conjunct Uranus at the 29 degree of karmic completion.  The Sabian symbol for this is 'The music of the spheres.'  What is being requested with this energetic is an attunement to the cosmic order and a deep listening of your inner voice.  Creative insights are available and at the same time major shadow is coming up to be cleared as we complete this 8 year cycle.

Earlier this week a meme crossed my path saying, 'It's up to us to break generational curses.  When they say "it runs in the family" you tell them "and this is where it runs out".'   You are here to be a paradigm shifter, a lineage transformer, a code breaker.  What we are experiencing on the collective and personal levels right now is an activation that happens once in 502 years.  So the question is, What are you going to do with this opportunity


In the past week I have held space for many going through deep transformation in their lineages.  I myself am going through radical changes that are at times overwhelming and downright complex.  Yet two wise friends both left me with a sacred message that I wish to pass on to you.  Trust the process

And how may you trust the process?  Build your altars.  Give offerings to your ancestors.  Make sacred fires.  Honor and serve your community.  Give thanks for the abundance of gifts that are before you.

I believe in you

Ra Ma

Venus Day Blessings dear One,

Welcome February!  Last night I recorded the forecast for the moonth of February for the Cosmic Collective, and I have to say, I am very much looking forward to this month ahead.  If you are interested in virtual Kundalini yoga, meditation, breathwork practices and astrological support, you may join the Cosmic Collective here.  In February we are blessed with some beautifully rich spiritual opportunities of transmissions straight from the cosmos that are also rooted in the 3d.  This means we may ground and anchor our dreams to Mother Earth!

Tomorrow evening we gather in the Dark of the Moon in honor of the Aquarius New Moon. This moonth we find ourselves welcoming in the genius solutions available with the energetics of Aquarius. This New Moon is sweet and special, an opportune time to move forward major manifestation.  There are still a few spaces available to join us for our Womxn's Wisdom Circle.


This year we welcome Solar Imbolc with the Aquarius New Moon on Monday, February 4th at 4:04 pm EST.  Imbolc is also known as Candlemas, Brigids Day, Imolg and is known as the Winter Cross Quarter.  This is the Festival of Earth Awakening. 

We are working with our abilities to manifest while remembering our intuitive wisdom and all we have gained from our descent into the Underworld and our play with the Otherworld.  The days are lengthening.  It is cold and yet, buds form on trees.  The signs that the Earth are stirring are found within Nature.  This is a time to prepare inwardly for the transformation ahead.  Divination, candle gazing, scrying and clairvoyance are potent during this season.   Call upon your guides, spirit protectors and healthy ancestors for support. They can only assist if you ask!

Where I am most at home is in the heart of the Nature, frolicking with the unseen realms.  In these spaces I feel witnessed.  I feel a connection to the realms beyond time and space.  I imagine maybe you too feel like this?

I'll be honest, putting myself out in the ways that I do through social media, the Venusian Love Notes, and my other offerings offers a true push-pull within my psyche.  There is a large part of me that wishes to disconnect from all technology, find my sacred Land to nest upon and to merge with the Otherworld.  The reality is that we have real work to do on behalf of our lineages, humanity and Mother Earth.

So I rise up in solidarity with you to this Call!  Dear human family, can we do this work with authenticity, sobriety, spiritual integrity, creativity and kindness?  When we lift up one, we lift up all.  There is plenty for each of us at the table of of the Great Mother.   We are here to unite, not to compete.  We are here to love, not to fear.

This year of 2019 is all about integrity.  The way forward is not easy, however it is time to blossom in our Truth.  As we move deeper into the Age of Aquarius, each one of us becomes more subtle.  Our impeccable actions are needed more than ever.  I believe in you.

Let's make some magick happen!


In the beauty way,
Ra Ma

The truth is, you've got this

Ra Ma

Venus Day Blessings dear One,

My prayer is that you are integrating through the Eclipse portal with ease and grace.  Monday's Eclipse was potently beautiful.  Did you see the glorious moon?  I stood outside in below freezing weather with my head back for over 1/2 an hour, as I could not take my eyes off of Her.

Now we are shedding during this waning moon phase.  You may feel tired, exhausted, hopeful, overwhelmed, manic, blissful, lethargic, or depressed as you are integrating an essential Eclipse journey.  Make sure you take the time to drink lots of water, walk outdoors, eat grounding foods, lean on a tree, prioritize yourself, gaze at the stars, meditate, laugh, weep with Mother Earth, play beautiful music and dance.  

I've heard from many of you this past week about all that you are going through.  These times are intense.  2019 is about leveling up with the velocity of Saturn, Pluto and the Karmic South Node in Capricorn.  Our work is not just about self mastery, it is about mastering our ancestral lineages.  We are digging to the core of who we are, purging the roots of home and family.  Buried memories are coming to the surface.  This work is mighty.  


The truth is, you've got this.  Whatever you are going through you have the ability to meet it head on with an open, wide heart.  The new normal is all about massive expansion and radical purification.  In any given moment you are most likely contracting with essential closure, while building a new dream.  The key is to work the balance of the two with integrity and grace.  As we build in 2019, we rewrite our narratives.  

Last night, I launched my first Starwalker Astrology Salon, a virtual astrology course to assist you with learning essential the language of astrology.  We had an amazing time together and the recording is available on patreon.  If you've considered joining me over here, you can still sign up now in January and receive all of the content without being charged until February 1st.  So if you are sitting on the fence, now is the time to test the waters. 

On Sunday night we will meet for the first Dreamcircles Ancestral Healing session.  I know this will be sacred and special.  The dream realm and the ancestral realm will be our sources of inspiration for our time together.  I look forward to circling up with you.  

And if you live in the Asheville area please join us for the Aquarius New Moon Womxn's Wisdom gathering.  As always we will gather during the potency of the Dark Moon to discover the cosmic weather of the lunar cycle ahead, imbibe stone medicine tonics crafted by yours truly, meditate, bathe in sacred sound and dive deep in a circle of wise and integral Sisters.  

We are the one's we've been waiting for my friends. 

Be the Tantrika of your Destiny

Ra Ma

Venusian Day blessings.  As many of you know Venus rules my chart and I love to use these days as a time to honor this force of culture and beauty that is often seen as a sister to Earth.  What I am finding is that the language of the cosmos is essential for these times. Tantrika is found to come from the roots of the word tan, meaning to weave and tra meaning to liberate.  Each one of us is liberating Self through the weaving of our cosmic evolution.  In the depths of tantra, we find the Truth that the microcosm reflects the macrocosm.  ‘The Emerald Tablet’ written by Hermes is a cornerstone of Western astrology that teaches as above, so below, as within, so without.  One could imagine the multiverse as just one body, the Goddess governed by the unmanifested consciousness God. I personally love how Yogi Bhajan breaks down G O D as generator, organizer, destroyer.  

Both astrology and tantra seek to expand consciousness and liberate energy through rhythm.  The moon is our guardian of rhythm while we are on Earth. We are building steadily to the Super Blood Full Wolf Moon Eclipse at Leo 0°51’ which will be exact on January 21 at 12:16 am EST.  The eclipse will be visible from Europe, Africa, North and South America. This moon is very close to our Earth and may bring high tides, solar flares, unpredictable actions and behaviors. This is an essential time to stay grounded and hydrated.  You may find grounding by placing your feet on the Earth and taking baths and showers. Kundalini technology recommends always being near a body of water during an Eclipse.

In this Full Lunation Pluto, Mercury, the Karmic South Node and Sun all square Uranus which allows us to cut the cords of the past.  It is time for each one of us to leave behind all the spaces and places where we have settled, played nice, or have not been true to Self.  The question to ask is, Where have you underestimated Self?  This is a holy time to stand up for your authenticity.

We are clearing family karma, healing lineages, and completing cycles, particularly one we can trace back to February 2017 when we experienced the first Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Leo in over 18 years.  As we dissolve the past we have the ability to radically create our futures. Now it is time to birth a new mission, to write a new story.

On January 21 the Sun enters Aquarius, ushering the archetype of the cosmic visionary from the future.  In the Northern hemisphere we find ourselves deep in the midst of winter, incubating the seeds of the Capricorn New Moon while mentoring closely with Uranus and Saturn.  Aquarians are humanitarian and deeply concerned with the earth community. As a whole, 2019 is a time to honor our connection to the Earth for the next 7 generations to come.  We can all do better in stewarding this beautiful planet we call home.


In support of your journey through 2019 I invite you to join me on patreon. As you become a patron of my art, we have an opportunity to mutually support one another on this great cosmic journey.  If you sign up now, you won't be billed until February 1st, so you will receive all content for the month of January complimentary.  Which means if you find it is not a good fit, you may unsubscribe before you are billed. We have an ancestral healing circle and an astrology salon coming up live in the next week or so and I am really looking forward to creating a space of depth for our time together.  I have crafted these offerings as a Call to what I hear many of you asking for. More support. A deeper understanding of astrology, ancestral healing and how to commit to a daily practice. A community, a tribe. And accountability to your self mastery.

In this year of the Empress we are asked to live our creative genius.  The Karmic South Node in Capricorn is contracting to get to the core of our wounds while the Dharmic North Node in Cancer is engaging us that to feel is to heal.  As the Empress blends spirit and matter, we are the embodiment of self mastery, the pearl in the oyster.

As we build to this Super Blood Full Leo Wolf Moon Eclipse Moon Eclipse we are being asked to create closure, to heal, to shed.  And with that, we are required to let go. In the collective psyche we have an opportunity to make great strides in clearing our grief, our most ancient ancestral grief.  When we resist these natural laws of life is when we suffer. When we flow, we love with our infinite resources and vitality.

Be the tantrika of your destiny.

The year of the Empress

Ra Ma

This is the year of the Empress. In tarot the Empress is the Great Mother. Vicki Nobel reminds us that the Empress offers great abundance, birth, growth, community and relationship. She is the mother, the lover and the teacher. She blends spirit and matter, the Goddess within the body and this is exactly what each one of us is doing in 2019 as we ground and anchor with the Saturn's teachings of self mastery.

In the collective psyche we have an opportunity to make great strides in clearing our grief, our most ancient ancestral grief. Those age old subconscious blocks that have held back our lineage from success are ready to be shed.

This year is guided by the energetics of the positive mind as tantric numerology breaks down 2019 into a 3. Three is the positive mind, which reminds us of our will power and confidence. The solution is to activate the positive mind so that each of us is able to see the myriad of solutions available. We are in the energetic of building, action and manifestation as we write our new stories from the great transformation of 2018.


We are activating our individual blueprints as Saturn is guiding us to manifest from the 3d world  to the great heights of the 5d. With the Empress, the Great Mother as creative muse, we are guided to shift the caliber within. We need not go chasing after our dreams, but instead must go within with sadhana, with spiritual practice to heal the core wounds. Through stillness, meditation, prayer and ritual all is possible.

As we sit in the midst of the Eclipse portal, this week ahead offers us an opportunity to recommit to our transformation. This is a time to look for hidden meanings and to dive into the mysteries, to dive into the shadow.  Knowledge is power and if we create the space, we have the ability to get to the root of the matter. With determination and patience there is an ability to use resources to realize our dreams.

As you find the harmony and good in situations, you live your creative genius, like a pearl in the oyster. The positive mind is reminding each one of us to be like sunshine, like the solar ray of the 3rd chakra. As we seek the brighter side of life, we may harness the power of the dream. What is your dream? 

In support of your journey through 2019 I invite you to join me on patreon and considering signing up for my monthly Cosmic Collective, Dreamcircles Ancestral Healing and Starwalker Astrology Salon.  You may learn all about these offerings here.  As you become a patron of my art, we have an opportunity to mutually support one another on this great cosmic journey called life!  And if you sign up today, you won't be billed until February 1st, so you will essentially receive all content for the month of January complimentary.  Which means if you find it is not a good fit, you may unsubscribe before you are billed.

I have crafted these offerings as a Call to what I hear many of you asking for. More support. A deeper understanding of astrology, ancestral healing and how to commit to a daily practice.  A community, a tribe.  And accountability to your self mastery.  If you are feeling exceptionally committed you can join in all three offerings as an Interstellar Supporter

2019 A Pearl in the Oyster

Ra Ma

Venusian blessings dear One,

Welcome to 2019!  This year we continue on with next level astrology that is forming each one of us like a diamond in the rough.  We will have 4 eclipses on the Cancer/Capricorn axis and 1 eclipse on the Leo/Aquarius axis which will complete a cycle we began in May of 2017.  Cancer is all about feeling as the Great Engulfing Mother, while Capricorn is about contracting to get to the core. 

With the collective Nodes of Fate activating this polarity we can expect changes in home, family, heritage, alliances, security, identity and security.  The Dharmic work ahead is to create a sense of belonging, sanctuary, tribe and mobile roots that you bring with you everywhere you go. The karmic work will teach us how to shed the need to control, how to dissolve fears, how to let go of selfish behavior and where we need to shift focus from lack to potential.  This is the year to live your creative genius, to be a pearl in the oyster. 

Pearl was once a living mollusk and is formed around the soft tissue as a result of a parasite that make it through hard shell.  This stone contains large amounts of calcium carbonate and is deeply calming, with the ability to go straight to the Shen, which can be seen in Chinese medicine as the roots of the Spirit.  Pearl brings cycles to full circle while emitting light in the process.  Pearl will transform your thoughts into hope and beauty, assisting your deep core self to come in tune with the Divine Feminine.  


2019 is a mineral year that is asking each one of us to write our stories, to build that which is ready to be birthed through words, symbols and our actions. Mineral is the Element where memory is stored.  Memories that house our wellspring of creativity, our stories, our archetypal nature, our ability to conjure great resources.

The planet Saturn is deeply connected to the Mineral kingdom, ruling over crystals while bridging 3d and 5d.  In 2019 as Saturn and Pluto are awakening our essence with two conjunctions and a final third in early 2020.  These awakenings will offer us a new level of visionary activism, courage and strength. Community will be essential to these times, as in the historical past we have seen a rise of fascism, fanaticism, intense polarization and money markets crashing under this kind of astrology.  We must drop fear and instead focus on that which we are creating together in our communities as the salve for these times. 

While what may feel as heaviness from the teachings of Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn as we deepen our paths of self mastery in the 3d world, Jupiter in Sagittarius and Neptune in Pisces are offering us ways to continue to expand our spiritual growth and to consider how to evolve for the next seven generations to come.  This Saturday at 8:28 pm EST we welcome in the Capricorn New Moon partial Solar Eclipse. This Eclipse is asking us to look back to July 2000-2001 to review anything that needs to be shed that isn’t supporting your current evolution. With Eclipse energy if you refuse to make internal changes, external changes will be forced upon you.

This Eclipse has an emphasis on disruptors and awakeners offering super powerful energy for identifying any external blocks that may stand in your way and move past them.  The key is to be like water. How may you flow over, around, above and beyond the obstacles that keep you from embodying your highest destiny?

In support of your journey through 2019 I have a new offering to share with you!  I invite you to join me on patreon and considering signing up for my monthly Cosmic Collective, Dreamcircles and Starwalker astrology courses.  You may learn all about these offerings here.  As you become a patron of my art, we have an opportunity to mutually support one another on this great cosmic journey called life!  May this Capricorn New Moon support you immensely in setting the most potent intentions for 2019.

Together we are birthing a new dawn

Ra Ma

We are wrapping up the year of 2018, a Nature year in Dagara cosmology which signifies that each one of us has been through great transformation.  Nature is always in flux, shifting and growing, shedding and renewing. Astrologically 2018 offered the transitions of Chiron into Aries and Uranus into Taurus, a summer of retrogrades, 5 eclipses, Venus Retrograde in the Fall and the shifting of the Nodes of Fate from the Leo/Aquarius axis to the Cancer Capricorn axis.  As we are sealing this year of extremes, we have the opportunity for great healing as we shed old identities in preparation for 2019.

2019 heralds the Mineral year in Dagara cosmology.  Mineral is the Element where memory is stored. Memories that house our wellspring of creativity, our stories, our archetypal nature, our ability to conjure great resources.  This Mineral year is asking each one of us to write our stories, to build that which is ready to be birthed through words, symbols and our actions. Our bones, teeth, hair, nails all carry the mineral element.  Bones are like stones. The planet Saturn is deeply connected to the Mineral kingdom and this feels especially fitting for 2019 as Saturn and Pluto are awakening each one of us to the core of who we are.


The master teacher planet Saturn continues to explore his home sign of Capricorn and will meet Pluto in Capricorn twice in 2019 and once in early 2020.  We are entering a new phase of reality and an opportunity to grow like never before.  This work ahead will be the beginning of what we have been in training for since 2011.   

Together we are birthing a new dawn.  The last time these two planets came together was in 1518 when Martin Luther began the protestant reformation. 2019 is going to demand that each one of us walks with strength, with clarity and with purpose.  Daily practices that were non negotiable prior to 2019 will be downright necessary to thrive. We are being asked to drop all distractions, to create deeper connections as we continue on the paths of transformation.  It will be necessary for each one of us to face our inner and outer Truths. As we do so, we will create a real sense of belonging. Community will be essential for creative solutions to living on Earth, as community is necessary for our continued expansion.  In next week’s Venusian Love Notes I will unveil a special opportunity for you to create more wisdom and discipline in your lives for this year ahead.  

If you are local to the Asheville area, you are cordially invited to gather in my temple living room next Thursday for our Women’s Wisdom circle on the Dark Moon in Capricorn.  We will go deep into the astrology for the Capricorn Lunar cycle, which is in many ways like a hologram for the entire year of 2019. This first New Moon of the year comes in with a Solar Eclipse and a powerhouse of Capricorn energy that is ready to help you build what is essential to succeed in 2019.

Yuletide Full Moon Blessing

Ra Ma

Yuletide Greetings dear Ones,

On this Venus Day we mark the shortest day and the longest night in the Northern Hemisphere with Yule, also known as Winter Solstice, which is exact today at 5:23 pm EST.  The Holy Days are upon us, and collectively we gather in the Cauldron of Regeneration in this quiet season of stillness.  

Yule means wheel in Norwegian and is the time of year the Sun enters Capricorn, marked by Saturnalia. As we reclaim the dark, making peace with endings, we complete old cycles, passing the Dark of the Sun, and we welcome new beginnings, as we witness the Rebirth of the Sun.

Each day moving forward from today the Sun’s light will increase to the zenith of Summer Solstice, also known as Lithia.  Megalithic sites and other sacred temples around the world mark the movement of the Sun’s light, particularly the Winter Solstice.  This festival of rebirth is not just a beginning, it is also a renewal. And therefore, looking back to the past is just as essential as looking forward.


Both Samhain and Yule offer times of darkness, where the inner realms may expand and come to the forefront, so that we may experience the world within, our deepest Truths.  This is a time of birthing our visions, naming the dreams we have been incubating.

On Saturday at 12:48 pm EST the Full Moon is exact at 0°49' Cancer. This Full Moon is at the 1st degree of cardinal Cancer, marking that as much as this is a completion or an illumination, there is also a bright new beginning that is seeded within this cycle. This Full Moon is a continuation of December's themes that when we make space to feel, we do indeed heal.

We are moving towards the exact trine on Sunday where the destiny stream of the North Node in Cancer merges with the great healing abilities of Chiron in Pisces, sealing a great healing that is available to each one of us. As we are willing to step fully into the deeper, darker feelings to allow them to surface, to witness that which is uncomfortable so that it too may pass, we will complete a long lasting cycle in a profound way. A cycle that could even take you back to 2000-2001.

The Cancer Full Moon sextiles Uranus in Aries, offering creative expansion of genius solutions through our ability to feel. You may feel or intuit cosmic insights and receive instant inventive keys to long term dilemmas. And perhaps most importantly, Venus trines Neptune offering waves of love, mysticism, deep relaxation and creativity. One more major aspect worth noting is that the Moon will join with Betelgeuse in Orion, a fixed star associated with honor, wealth and great power. This is a prime time to be fully engaged with your intuitive powers and to be open to unexpected opportunities.

I'm offering a special class this Friday morning so please join me at 8:45 am at West Asheville Yoga if you live in the Asheville area.  As I mentioned last week, my apothecary is beginning to come alive again.  I find myself reaching for the Magdalene's Muse anointing oil and the Auric Root Mist daily.  In honor of the season, everything is 18% off with code YULETIDE for the next 7 days.  And if you are looking for a seasonal virtual ritual, I invite you to scroll to the bottom of this love note and join me in a circle of wise womxn for a complimentary journey into Winter's Womb.  

May you continue to honor the tender spaces of your being as we culminate this wildly transformative year of 2018.

Ra Ma

Feeling and Healing

Ra Ma

We are near the completion of the Samhain portal of shedding and letting go, while the time of great darkness, of going deep within is upon us.  The most revolutionary action you may take now is to feel your feelings.  Today we have the Moon conjunct Neptune and Mars in Pisces offering us a space to feel all of the feelings.  It is deep and vast.  Pisces is the mystic, the artist, the channel whom offers deep sensitivity, compassion and love.  With this energetic current we can easily struggle with escapism, avoiding reality and unhealthy boundaries.  The goddesses Venus and Ceres are both in Scorpio and in a trine with the Moon, Neptune and Mars so the ability to dive into the dark and unknown territories of consciousness is readily available, creating a space for true healing.  

Chiron in Pisces is trining the North Node in Cancer allowing us to merge all of the mending that is bestowed upon us with this collective dream of belonging, placing roots into the Earth wherever you may roam, crafting true sanctuary within.  Next Friday we welcome Yule, also known as Winter Solstice (in the Northern Hemisphere) at 5:23 pm EST. 

Together we will gather in the Cauldron of Regeneration in the yin season of stillness.  I'm offering a special class next Friday at West Asheville Yoga 8:45-10am in honor of Winter Solstice.  All levels and abilities are always welcome.  Also in honor of Yule, you are cordially invited to join me in the encore presentation of Entering Winter's Womb where I will guide you on a journey to the sacred landscape of Stonehenge, as our bodies truly carry ancestral wisdom and this is the season to turn inward in that exploration.  You may scroll to the bottom of this week's Venusian Love Notes to find more details.  

My apothecary is beginning to come alive again after the profound pilgrimages of 2018.  I find myself reaching for the Magdalene's Muse anointing oil and the Auric Root Mist daily.  I love both of these for traveling and for staying grounded, keeping my boundaries lovingly protected and for staying anchored in my heart.

May you honor the tender spaces of your being as we begin to bring this transformative year of 2018 to close.  


In the beauty way,
Ra Ma

Sagittarius New Moon of Truth

Ra Ma

This morning at 2:20 am we welcomed the final New Moon of the year of 2018.  The Moon and Sun finally met up together in Jupiter's home of Sagittarius offering us the great gift of expansion and growth.  Jupiter wishes to widen where Sagittarius lives in your chart, and the growth is all about the soul ascending beyond the material world.  Sagittarius brings wild adventurous horse energy, the expansive gypsy one who traverses through higher wisdom and knowledge.  

That being said, this is an important time to anchor to the Great Mother, to your Ancestors, to the Medicine that lives in your bones, as we are in the Dark Sun of the Wheel of the Year.  We are still in the Samhain portal and are making our way towards Yule, a great rebirth.  

This New Moon also welcomes a grand water trine as the North Node is in Cancer, Mercury is in Scorpio and Chiron is in Pisces.  There are many, oh so many feelings to be felt.  This is a beautiful time to find the music to match your mood.  Allow the waves of emotions to move through your body through dance, tears, or whatever it takes to experience and healthfully clear the feelings.  So many of us hold the emotions in and then later in life we are so full and repressed that illness sets in.  Our human emotions are absolutely beautiful and a gift.  

For those of you interested in crafting New Moon intentions, considering themes around a quest for Truth, spirituality and meditation, nature, faith, higher education and foreign travel.  Perhaps part of what you are seeding with this New Moon is about that which you are truly ready to let go of.  Sometimes a great sacrifice is needed to receive immense gifts from the Otherworld.  Many of us are shedding our snake skins.  The karmic completion degree of Uranus in Aries at 29° is still being activated at this New Moon, carving out a space for us to examine where in our lives endings need to be allowed, where the unresolved issues need to be faced, and met.  

Today in class I felt called to share how some sort of daily practice is absolutely essential in these times.  (If you need help navigating a daily practice, send me an email).  The astrology of 2019 is deeply purifying with the Saturn and Pluto conjunctions.  We need an anchor in this wild times.  The North Node in Cancer is asking each one of us to create sanctuary wherever we may roam, to call in our soul tribe, and to commit to creating a strong and true sense of inner security. 

May you navigate these times with ease and grace.  Sagittarian New Moon blessings.
