Dear Soul Family,Venus is at Cazimi, or exactly aligned with the Sun today, October 22, 2022 at 4:57 pm Central.  This is a time of great magic and potentcy in ancient western astrology.  I see this as a 3 day window of ceremony though today certainly is the high point!This is the very heart of the 584 ½ day Venus in Capricorn Cycle we began in January of this year that will complete in August.  This Venus Sun exterior/superior conjunction occurs at the Karmic degree of 29 Libra and activates a peacemaking frequency we haven't felt or seen since 1876. My feeling is that this Venus in Capricorn Underworld Portal from about September 19 to December 2 is in fact the very heart of the larger Age Change we're in the midst of.  What could be a greater healing medicine to support us in “composting" Capricorn Patriarchy than the most fully mature expression of Libra?When considering how we might restore a sacred culture here in the Americas and across the Globe during this “Capricorn Crucible” period, I often turn to the stories of the Haudenosaunee or Iroquois whose brilliant governing systems greatly influenced the more enlightened elements of the U.S. Constitution. When I think of this great meeting of the Sun and Venus in Libra within the context of the Capricorn Venus Cycle I think of Jighonsasee, or the “Mother of Nations” who joined forces with the Great Peacemaker and Hiawatha to bring peace to the five warring tribes along the eastern portion the U.S. and establish a Great Law of Peace. Even in the midst of the darkest days prior to the Great Law of Peace she held a space inclusive of all.  In her lodge, men from all five tribes would come together in peace.  It was through the work she had already been doing to mend the wounds of generations of violence that the Peacemaker could accomplish his mission of a harmonious society. I go into greater depth about this Venus Cazimi moment in my podcast.  listen in here!
Happy Super Full Moon in Capricorn Soul Family!What a powerful Full Moon we have tonight.  Close to the Earth its ability to stir deepest emotions is amplified.  In Capricorn opposite the Cancer Sun and with Pluto what's been in the deep has been surfacing.This Full Moon is Guru Purnima within the Hindu traditions, a day of great celebration and acknowledgment of all great spiritual teachers in their living tradition.  All across the globe tonight people are in prayer and festivities, bringing more light into our world. We are powerful beings living in an incredible moment on Earth.  Some say nearly all souls ever incarnated on the Earth are alive and present at this time.  We are truly living through the paradox.  We are ever more rapidly destroying the Earth herself with our extractive culture and current consciousness. And yet simultaneous to this a new human culture of reverence, sacred remembrance, reciprocity, beauty, Earth care, sky-knowledge, plant healing, rites of passage for all genders and stages, healing modalities weaving modern medicine with ancient wisdom… Though we may be in the very heart of the darkest moment of our chrysallis stage as a species, never forget to look long and with love and attention at what of beauty, truth, and presence is flowering within us, between us and all around us   We are waking up and we are all needed now, as never before.In this Podcast I explore more intimately and personally what my own experiences of “Sacred Culture” have been, as that is a theme for my opening presentation for the Turtle Island Reborn Convergence you can access at www.astrologyforearthrenewal.comMy feeling is that many human beings have a great longing for community weaving where we can experience art, beauty, sacred movement, celebration, ceremony, a feeling of cohesiveness, and a connection with the living Earth. Where have you experienced a sacred context for community gathering that felt true, safe, authentic and soul quenching? Where have you been creating these kinds of contexts for others?  In my view, these containers are the vessels we will need most to traverse these critical years between 2017-2025, the heart of our Great Turning of an Age. Listen in and if you would like to support me in this work you can do so in the following ways:Donate to my podcast at a 2022 Solstice Six Month Integrate and Breakthrough Session (extended for two more weeks):
Dear Soul Family, Between the Gemini New Moon (exact this morning at 6:30 am Central), Mars conjunct Jupiter in Aries (exact yesterday), and Venus' move into Taurus this past week, we're in a collective exhale with greater brightness, lightness and pleasure again, as I mentioned last podcast--the “Big Beautiful Breakthroughs" are incoming.The eclipse season and Mercury Retrograde, on the tail end of all the Pisces activations had us in a space where all kinds of timelines were surfacing and weaving.  All the intensity of feeling where we have been entangled in ancestry and this life connections to open and fall away like a big knot as we cultivate patience to gently loosen. This Gemini New Moon sets the tone for the month and ampifies two core themes for 2022--Sacred Union and Earth Opulence.  Earth Opulence because of North Node and Uranus in Taurus and Venus in a Capricorn Cycle.Sacred Union because we've had Venus and Mars visibly close in the morning sky for much of the first half of the year and because of some major features now where we have Venus in Taurus (its resonant yin or feminine sign) and Mars in Aries (its resonant yang or masculine sign) at the same time. This morning's Gemini New Moon was with Aldebaran (and the Sun remains with the star today).  This star marks the eye of the Bull, is one of the four Royal Stars of prophecy each marking one of the four cardinal directions and associated with an Archangel--in this case Michael.When the Sun (and in this case also Moon) is with Alebaran it opens a portal to ancestral memory from the Age of Taurus, specifically the period 5,000 years ago when the Sun at the Spring Equinox was with Aldebaran.  When we look at the symbol for the head of the Bull in the sky where Aldebaran is placed, we see horns creating the shape of the uterus--embodying the paradox of the primal masculine force of the bull as a symbol for the feminine womb.  in service to the peaceful, gylanic (balanced between masculine and feminine) cultures at this time for example the Minoan cultures of ancient Crete.We feel and see this beautiful Sacred Union as well in the conjunction of Mars in its resonant sign of Aries with Jupiter (primal yang or masculine essence) at the same time Venus has moved into the feminine, earthy yin sign of Taurus.Venus's movement into Taurus extending Taurus/Beltane season so we are in a continued phase of remembering our core connection to the fertile and life-giving lands and opportunities to continue the most primary practices of co-regulating with the Earth's rhythms and finding the deep pleasure and source energy there. The Mars Jupiter conjunction in Aries last night, as well as the fact that Venus is currently moving through the Solar Plexus Gate says this--Know Who You Are.  Know what you stand for, what your particular place is in any given moment of time.  Honor what is yours to stand in--your fierce and holy yes to life. Mercury stations direct on Friday, June 3 and Saturn stations retrograde on Saturday, June 4.  Mercury direct adds to the forward momentum of Aries while Saturn retrograde helps us stablize, slow down, and feel held in the container where true magic can happen. Learn more about this New Moon and upcoming month by listening to my Podcast Below
Dear Soul Family,Check out tonight's Blood Flower Moon (Total Lunar Eclipse) in Scorpio beginning in its partial phase at 9:28 pm central and ending at 1:00 am. The peak is at 11:11 pm.  All Lunar Eclipses operate as Super Full Moons and time accelerators helping us face and heal the shadow and as this one is in Scorpio with the South Node featuring Venus with Chiron.  We've been feeling this one coming from a mile away, haven't we?  Oof!! If you're anything like me you might feel like crawling out of your skin.  This is just the time my dear friend Intuitive Julie Brown would say something like “you're feeling these difficult emotions right now because you are clearing them.”  Be gentle with yourself."I always feel something in me unlock when she says this, a part that's been fightning, struggling, locked up tight and in deep contraction.  To recognize there is a process at work that is ultimately working toward my wholeness and peacefulness and inner congruence is a great relief.  And when I feel that relief suddenly my heart opens. And ultimately that is the benefit of shadow work.  Our hearts open to meet ourselves, others and our lives with more softness, more presence, more grace. So if you've been feeling exhausted, heavy, low on energy and just wanting to nap all day it's no wonder.  If you've felt out of sorts, cranky or like there's a pressure cooker living inside your guts you're not alone.  Know you are in a process of being “cooked” from the inside out with all of the pressure and intensity helping you become more of a well seasoned and delicious human.I love the work of psychological activist David Bedrick and recently came upon his wonderful description of Shadow Work as follows: "A person tells me they're too judgmental. I hear a person ready to become more discerning, to have clear opinions, or who feels inferior and needs to be lifted up.A person tells me they're a procrastinator.I hear a person who is trying to do something that is somehow not right for them. Or a person who is ruled by an unfriendly type of discipline, an inner criticism, whose self-love won't let them proceed under that inner tyranny.A person tells me "I STILL haven't resolved my trauma, attachment issues, dependencies."I hear a person needing to be closer to their humanity and the humanity of others. Or a person who needs a more forgiving attitude towards themselves. (Perhaps that even helps the road to their healing become more pure and clear.)A person tells me they need to learn to trust. I hear a person who is not quite at home in being closed, having boundaries, or simply needs to listen more closely to their own counsel and heart.A person tells me that they can't RELEASE their anger. I hear a person who has an unfriendly relationship with a kind of power that rises up in them.  A person needing support to not only deeply feel their anger but to embody it, express it and enjoy the way it feels. (by the way, that smooths out anger, making it more able to do its job and not unwisely injure).When I hear the voice of the divine singing in my ear, it says, "Listen carefully to the complaints people make about themselves. When they are mixed with comparison, critical self-evaluation, even self-hatred, slow down and bring some grace and love to what they malign, marginalize and push away. Don't support the creation of more shadow. Help them come home to themselves - the magnificent self they already are.
Happy Taurus Solar Eclipse!  We've entered the two-week Eclipse Cauldron with the Taurus Solar Eclipse (Super New Moon) exact today at 3:28 pm central on the heels of Pluto Retrograde, with Venus meeting Jupiter today in late Pisces, in the Beltane Cross Quarter Window of High Magic.  Exact Solar Beltane is Thursday, May 5.May features astrology that will blow your mind with three planets retrograde (Pluto, Mercury, then Saturn) a major Eclipse Window opening with the Solar Eclipse today and closing with a Total Lunar Blood Moon Eclipse May 15/16, a shift from the Morning Sky stellium of Pisces (Jupiter, Venus and Mars) into Aries--with Jupiter entering the sign for the first time in 12 years.Today's Eclipse with Uranus and Venus at the Heart Chakra is conjunct Jupiter in Pisces.   We're at the tail end of this big Pisces portal where prayer and the dreamtime have been our keys to making it through.Keep it simple today, tend to your body and daily rhythms.  Less words, more presence.  Listen to the intelligence of your body.  Feel where the Earth and you are wanting to connect and go there.  Create spaces to release whatever grief, sorrow of loss you have been feeling in this Pisces Portal. The energies of today are potentially ecstatic and revolutionary.  Energy wants to be moved through, old stuck blockage wants to be cleared.  Let the mind rest, it cannot help you today.  The body, the heart, and the soul want to be fully expressed today, to be in charge.  Trust the wisdom of your body, and this Earth body.Venus at the Heart Chakra Gate This MonthOn Wednesday, April 27 the Moon activated the Venus Chakra Gate, and this theme is felt for the entire month.   I keep getting this little love note when I drink yogi tea saying “Uncage Your Heart, Let it Be Wild.”  You may feel there is an “old me” and “new me” wanting to emerge, and experienced a confusing shuttering between the two.  Over the past months and weeks this back and forth might make you and those you love a bit crazy.  However,  our “new” and “old” selves are actually closer in frequency now and there is a mysterious blending, an integration happening. It can be gentle. We can shift from what might has felt like violence, or turbulence within ourselves into a field of greater peace and coherence.  That is what heart medicine offers to us.  It is the healing balm bringing an underlying state of wellness and wholeness and ease to this otherwise quite dynamic month. This back and forth is happening in our most intimate relationships as well, where a third possibility for a “new relationship” is being birthed as we move back and forth between old patterns that may appear at times quite toxic yet can actually ease up and be loosened more now. I would go so far as to say this dynamic is also happening between each of us personally and our relationship with the Earth, and our species as a whole and its relationship to our home planet.  You might feel the deep tangles in our relationships with beloveds and family members and some very deep places of pain, shame and embarassment--the shadow has been rising to the surface with Pluto retrograde. We have been in a place of surrender with all the Pisces medicine and prayer has been our most powerful medicine.  Ask what is not for the highest and greatest of all involved to be dissolved and cleared fully and completely. Pisces to Aries Shift in MayOver the course of the month there is a shift of Venus, Jupiter and Mars from Pisces to Aries.  Jupiter moves into Aries for the first time in 12 years on May 10.  Even with all the retrogrades and Eclipse energies it is possible find a strong yes or no in our bodies and make choices serving our full expression and con
Dear Soul Family,Please enjoy this heart to heart conversation I had today with Earth Sky Woman Diane Gribbin.  More and more I realize my biggest work is to “stop stopping myself,” from moving forward on my path, even when it might appear nonlinear or unfamiliar, or out of bounds of how I think it's “supposed to look," or if it involves letting go of something else that was on my agenda.In the past days I've also been realizing all this pressure to develop my body of work, find my way, refine my identity--well, the older I get the more this very insistent soul voice is saying to me--it's not about you anymore.  You have nothing to prove.  Get out of the way to become a true Channel for Gaia. So this morning I followed the inspiration I had to to interview Diane Gribbin, Founder of HeartWood Healing Arts Ecowellness Centre & "LET LOVE WIN!" global movement & community.  I was recently introduced to her as part of the beautiful community I've been gathering with through my Star Sisters Jaime Lee and Maria Zeta. What I've been longing for lately is to be steeped in conversation with people who are bridging the worlds of Earth Care and Human Care.  I feel increasingly less at home purely working in the conversation of astrology, just as years ago I became disenchanted by the secular approaches to ecology and earth care. I felt so deeply replenished by this conversation with Diane, who models a rare coherence, embodiment and great love in her approach to caring for the Earth, addressing climate change, and gathering a community of “Wild Hearted Women” to address Earth Care and Self Care. Check out our conversation and how to enroll in her free event:  5-Day Heroine's Journey Challenge to LET LOVE WIN! beginning TOMORROW. REPLAY IS HERE ON MY NEW EARTH SKY WOMAN YOUTUBE! I don't even have my new logo yet but I couldn't wait, Earth Day is Tomorrow! 
Happy Pink Libra Full Moon, Ostara, Easter, Passover, still Ramadan, almost Earth Day!Today's Full Moon is ALMOST a sidenote when you consider all the surrounding astrology. The Libra Pink Full Moon with Priestess Star Spica was exact today at 1:55 pm square Pluto.  Spica, long associated with the Divine Feminine,  has connections specifically with the Goddess Brigid, as shared recently by Daniel Giamario, originator of the Shamanic Astrology Paradigm,  from a time when the Full Moon closest to Spica was visible near Imbolc, Brigid's holiday.The Pluto effect is amplified as the Sun Square Pluto transit can be felt through the coming week AND Pluto stations retrograde next week, so it is close to the earth and felt palpably. We're definitely feeling the Underworld energetics of needing to face the shadow, lean into what frightens or otherwise provokes strong feeling in us, and from this direct confrontation gain the gifts of wholeness, strength, and coherence. Jupiter and Neptune in Pisces with Venus and MarsStill in the window of the Jupiter Neptune conjunction last Tuesday with Mars joining the duo and Venus in Pisces Thursday (mega Pisces energy on the personal and collective levels).  The Jupiter Neptune conjunction was a once in 150 year event and will continue to be active over the coming weeks with Venus activating them at the end of the month.We all love the Piscean gifts of bliss, unity consciousness, compassion, healing and unconditional love.  Yet this great Piscean activation has stirred the shadows of Pisces as well. Consider Pisces is always the END of a long, long cycle and before we surrender into an ocean of oneness, we may feel feel the weight of the world--the most unbearable grief, sorrow and heartsickness.If this has been you, overtaken by soul weariness in this past week even as astrologers everywhere were proclaiming the blessings and gifts of the transit, know you were not alone.  Pisces, like every sign, encompasses the full spectrum, the full range of extremes from deepest grief to most profound ecstatic bliss.It can be helpful to remember we are tiny, and the Ocean of life is vast.  To let ourselves experience the gift of our smallness, even as we claim our own role, our own place as dreamers of the worlds within our sphere of influence.And this is also the moment poised on the edge of rebirth and like Jupiter's back and forth movement between Aries and Pisces the promise is for the sun to burst out of the clouds, and a new beginning to be felt personally and collectively.Venus moving from Throat to Heart Chakra GateVenus continues moving through the Throat Chakra Gate until April 26.  Until that time we all benefit greatly from the practice of “speaking even if our voice shakes,” in fact I would say, ESPECIALLY then.  Are we willing to tell the truth about what we know, feel and experience? Even if it is unpopular? Even if we might be understood? With South Node in Scorpio, I have felt strongly (and seen it repeatedly) that the fear around revealing our “inner witch” would be amplified.  Yet it is even more essential now for us to claim and express the wisdom, feminine knowing, and magical perceptions we carry.  Our world needs our personal gnosis like never before. On April 26 the Moon activates Venus at the Heart Chakra Gate and for the month following it's for us to clear, release, and unburden ourselves of the many ways we have closed our hearts to life, to love, to full presence.FOR THE FULL REPORT CHECK OUT MY PODCAST HERE
Dear Soul Family,In this moment as Venus and Mars and Pluto are blessed with the medicine of Vesta, the we see and energize the power and potency of the Slavic Goddess Behynia, protectress of house and home in Kyiv, Ukraine, where she was erected in 1993 commemorating the countries independence.We align ourselves with a timeline where peace prevails, where a new story emerges, a new dream to replace the old.  We understand the dictum "as within, so without" is a literal reality, and so we extend the Great Heart of the Mother to ourselves as we see where we have been exhausting ourselves with violence and battle within.  We stand strong in the wisdom of our hearts, we become the "adult in the room" guarding the vulnerable layers within our field and the world about us, creating a space for healing for the wounded child within and without, yet no longer allowing this wounded self to take charge of our inner and outer realities.This Pisces New Moon with Jupiter opens the Heart of the Great Mother within our global community strengthening us with the power of divine love and grace pouring in from all dimensions reminding us what is ultimately true.  Saturn and Mercury are joined in Aquarius near Juno and our minds are fortified so we are able to think clearly about what truly matters.Even as we cultivate the practice of standing together as a community of Great Love, we focus our minds productively on our day to day tasks, becoming the capable, trustworthy, visionary stewards of the creative seeds we are nourishing and bringing alive into the New Earth Garden we are tending and guarding daily.  So many blessings to each and every one of you. I see you, holding the light strong in these moments of darkness.  I feel you continuing to keep alive the beauty and treasure of your true essence and gift in the world.  I hear you, speaking the words we all need to hear to bring peace, and wellbeing and calm to our world. Blessings beyond blessings beyond measure to each and every one of you.  These are the times we came for.  This is our year to come alive, come together, and remake our reality, guided by the Great Mother within and without--powerful beyond measure, guardian of the Family of Life, Mender of the fragmented World Soul, Peacemaker, Magic Bringing, She Who Makes Miracles beyond our wildest imaginings.  With love and more love, Tami 
 Dear Ones,The Aquarius New Moon is exact at 11:46 pm tonight (Monday) central and features an extraordinary gathering of Goddess Asteroids including Vesta (conjunct Venus) Juno (still close to Pluto in the very last degree of Capricorn), Hygeia (opposite Uranus) and Ceres (conjunct the North Node). All this adds to the already prominent feminine rising energies of Venus very close to the Earth, gorgeous shining in the Morning Sky having just stationed direct last Saturday near the Crescent Moon at the first gate in her descent to the Underworld.  This is the time in the Inanna stories where she sacrifices her crown to enter the first gate to the Underworld.This coming month we surrender ALL the ways we have outsourced our spiritual authority.  It is a spiritual battleground out there right now--essential to remember our sovereignty and that our spirits and our lives are our own.  Each being has a right to shine our light, to claim and express the truth as we know and experience it. We've just emerged from the 40-day period of profound inner work during the Venus Retrograde period and by the time Mercury stations direct Thursday/Friday depending on your time zone,  we will be moving into more of a mode of active creation.  If you still feel slow, that is absolutely perfect as well. It's essential to understand that this 1 1/2 year Venus in Capricorn Cycle--with special intensity during the retrograde and while she remains in Capricorn until March 6--is a time where we see and feel strongly the contractions around Capricorn shadow issues like attempts to control everything, feeling victimized by timetables, a relentless inner critic, the comparison game, etc... Just know that if you've had massive contractions in these areas you are not alone and it is ultimately to help you LIGHTEN your load and drop into the ancient/emergent true nature of Capricorn which is earthy, wise, patient, and knows how to create in the perfect timing without a false sense of urgency. True Capricorn is sourced in sovereignty, self love, dignity and an astonishingly radiant and unshakeable love of this Earth and ALL her people, both human and more than human.   I share much more in my podcast, which ALSO includes a spontaneous guided meditation so careful if you are driving!  
 Happy Cancer Wolf Full Moon Dear Ones,We are in another grand portal of magic, miracles and full feeling with this Cancer Full Moon (exact tonight, Monday January 17 at 5:50 pm central) opposite Pluto, in the Venus Retrograde and Mercury Retrograde period, with Uranus stationing direct tomorrow and the Lunar Nodes shifting from Gemini/Sagittarius to Taurus/Scorpio--something that only happens every 18.6 years!This is a period where the yin approach of creating greater space for stillness, time in nature, meditation, journaling, self reflection, daydreaming, nurturance of self and other will yield the greatest benefits over time.  As will simple messing around just for the fun of it with no agenda except to try new things that make you smile!As a dear friend of mine, intuitive Julie Brown remarked so wisely in a chat last week, the new year doesn't REALLY begin until the Chinese New Year in early February (which of course is also the Imbolc/Candemas Cross Quarter). I hope you have had some time to slow down, to refresh and reflect, to nourish your body, your soul, your psyche and your heart.  If you have not yet, please consider doing so. It will benefit you so greatly in your ability to truly offer yourself over this coming year.  It may seem paradoxical but in the midst of this larger period of continued reflection and integration of 2021 and visioning into 2022 and beyond, we also have Venus rising as Morning Star now so it IS important to INITIATE.  I see it as planting the first seeds of our visions, beginning to set in motion the larger plans we won't fully launch until February or beyond. We are invited to move ever more fully into trust and flow, allowing Spirit to inform us of next steps as they arise, taking steady actions yet simultaneously continuing the undercurrent of deep self care, listening, reflection and building our energy for the months to come. Missing the Last Podcast and Celebrating Accomplishments!It was delicious, and a bit of a stretch!--to take a pause from the podcast and bi-monthly emails for the Capricorn New Moon, as I was in need of deep integration. This was the first break I have taken from the podcast since I began in April of 2020--since that time I have published 50 podcasts and received 16,600 downloads!  Woo HOO! Celebrating that and feeling so much gratitude for all of you out there for listening and sharing!! I am so grateful to you!I also realized I have been publishing a regular newsletter now always at least twice a month *(initially weekly!), since 2008--that is 14 years this year!  I feel proud and happy to have been able to offer this to you for all these years and grateful beyond measure for the privilege and honor. I am in a phase of much internal and external change where I am listening ever more deeply to the call of Spirit.  What I know for sure is more collaborations, new offerings as Spirit calls, and more on the ground weaving of Earth community here in Missouri and in travel across Turtle Island.Stay tuned and I share much more in my Podcast here!
Happy Winter Solstice and Gemini/Cancer Full Moon!This next two weeks taking us into 2022 is extraordinary beyond measure as it features the Winter Solstice (exact Tuesday), Venus entering a 40-day retrograde period and transition from the Gemini to Capricorn cycle, the final Saturn Square Uranus activation, Chiron stationing direct today (square Mercury today, trine Mars and square the Sun over the coming week) and Jupiter moving into Pisces.

The Total Solar Eclipse only visible in the Antarctic Peninsula and the southernmost tip of South America and Australia is at totality at 1:33 am Central Saturday morning, December 4.  The partial eclipse opens at 1:00 am and completes at 2:06 am with the full eclipse lasting nearly an hour and totality lasting nearly two minutes. The next Total Solar Eclipse will be in 18 months. This  Sagittarius Eclipse activates Antares, the Royal Star of the Scorpion  Constellation and Mercury is aligned with the Great Attractor so the potency of our thoughts and words is increased and we can  connect to our own Royal Heart--more in my podcast.Venus at Greatest BrilliancyAs if the Eclipse weren't enough, tonight,  December 3 Venus is at her greatest brilliancy.--brightest to us--in the Evening Sky TONIGHT.  She will of course remain very bright through the coming week as she begins her descent to the horizon over the coming month. Also look for her Sunday night December 6 with the crescent moon "on her throne" as the gorgeous Love Goddess she is in her brightest Evening Star apparition.Venus is the Earth's Twin or Mirror being the same size as Earth, same composition, and spinning in the opposite direction.   There are many riddles inherent in her nature and cycles but one we have been experiencing and most powerfully today is the fact that when she is in her crescent phase (yes, planets also have phases like the Moon), she appears brightest to us. She is completing her Gemini Evening Star Phase which began in May this year.  Over that period of time she has met the Moon 7 times and in the tales of the Great Goddess Inanna this means she has reclaimed her Seven Great Powers including her Crown of Sovereignty and now sits on her throne fully exalted.The Sumerian priestess and scholar Enheduanna devoted her life to writing praise poems to Inanna/Venus.  Take note that Inanna was a Goddess of War as well as of Love.For this reason and because there were distortions in the cultures she emerges from such as systems of power over and glorification of war, I have taken the liberty of changing the words in the final stanzas to honor her new evolving and perhaps ancient nature as one who empowers EACH of us regardless of social status or rank, to claim our FULL ROYALTY and shine our light, stand for Peacemaking and contribute to the healing of the whole. If you speak these words aloud in addressing the Great Love Goddess in the Sky, the Great Queen who has regained her throne, realize she lives IN YOU whether you are in a male body, a female body, or a body defying labels.Lady of all divine powers,Lady of the all-resplendent light,Righteous Lady clothed in heavenly radiance,Beloved Lady of the Sky God and the Earth MotherMistress of heaven with the holy jeweled crownWho loves the beautiful headdress befitting the office of her high priestess,Powerful Mistress who has seized all seven divine powers,My lady, you are the guardian of the seven divine powers!You have seized the divine powers,You hold the divine powers in your hand,You have gathered up the divine powers,You have clasped the divine powers to your breast!Like a dragon you have cast your bright light upon all the landsWhen you claim your right to embody and shine on the Earth at this time, all will feel the power of your divine love emanating from within themselves.Your love so fiery and yet so sweet, offering sacred waters to heal all the dry scorched lands.O Mighty Lady of Earth and Sky you will help them to remember and Goddess of Love, the Goddess of personal Sovereignty, the Feminine Divine Rising to Bring our World Back into Balance.MORE in my PODCAST here!
Friday, November 19 features the longest partial Lunar Eclipse in 580 years and the longest of this century at six hours total with its peak lasting 3 hours, 28 minutes.  At 97.4 percent, it is as good as a Total Lunar eclipse in effect and visuals. I see this Lunar Eclipse at 27 Taurus as THE big event of 2021 because of its extraordinary length of duration as well as its activation of the Pleiades and the North Node.  A Lunar Eclipse helps us leap timelines and accelerate our deepest desires and intentions as the Moon accomplishes in a few hours--all the phases from Full to New and back to Full--what would normally take nearly 30 days. The North Node supports positive forward momentum and the Pleiades are known to many indigenous people's as their original home star system.  The Pleiadians have been the source of some of the most illunimating channeled spiritual insight over the past century and are seen as strong guardians and advocates for humanity's evolution of consciousness and the wellbeing of planet Earth.Yet this Lunar Eclipse is not only a Moon of light and heart... any Lunar Eclipse by its nature will bring up light AND shadow as can be seen as we observe the reveal and illumination dance of the Earth's shadow upon the Moon's face.  This Eclipse also activates Algol, a fixed star of ill repute in ancient Europe, often called the "demon star" because of its location in the third eye of the head of Medusa as well as its strange twinkling pattern as an eclipsed binary star which, about every 68 hours blinks on and off for eight hours. I personally love this star and believe it points to the reality that we must become opened to the tenderness, the poignancy, the loss and pain of life if we are to become vessels as well for joy, delight, and pleasure.  So in this eclipse we find both medicines--much as the great Dream Healer Aesclepeus used the blood from Medusa's head to both heal and to take life.I speak much more in depth of this in my podcast here.  The three-day period surrounding the eclipse is a time of high magic and alchemy where the more space we can create for our dreams, visions, and practices of stillness and deep listening, the better.  Thursday evening and Friday morning especialy we benefit greatly when we take time and create the sacred context to hear our higher guidance. I have seen this as the Eclipse of Great Bounty and Sensual Delight as it lasts so long in the sign of Taurus.  In this Samhain season in the north where the wheel turns from fall to winter, the Full Moon in late Taurus reminds us of the abundance and sensual season of Beltane, moving from Spring to Summer.  Take time to savor the pleasure of life in this eclipse window and let your turning inward be toward gratitude and recieving of the pleasures of being fully alive.
Happy Scorpio New Moon Beautiful Soul Family!The Scorpio New Moon exact at 4:15 pm Central today is opposite Uranus.   It is approaching Zubenelgenubi and Zuben Elschemali in the Scales Constellation where the Sun will be Saturday sunset through Sunday (Nov 6-7) sunrise marking the exact Samhain Cross Quarter. When we choose to be fully present in the moment to our breath, to the Earth, to the pleasure of being in the body and fully feeling--including all of it, leaning into the places of sweetness, anxiety,  fear, vulnerability,  we become lit up from the inside and deliciously available to the fullness of life. The Scales constellation is associated with Ma'at, the great Egyptian Goddess of Truth, Justice and Wisdom.  Ma'at also represented the concept of Order from Chaos or the ideal state of harmony humans can achieve when working in alignment with the powers of Creation.  In the Hall of Judgment in the Afterlife Anubis, the Jackal-headed Underworld God, would measure the hearts of the deceased in one scale and the "Feather of Ma'at," an Ostrich Plume, to determine the destination of the individual.If the heart was equal or lesser in weight than the heart, the individual would proceed toward the "Duat" or Paradise but if it were heavier it would be devoured by a massive chimera Demon God, Ammit, comprised of the three great man-eating animals--Crocodile, Lion, and Hippopotamus, and the person's soul would be restless forever in the Underworld. We live once again in a time of Great Imbalance where we are wise to call in the Goddesses or primal forces that restore balance--including Sekhmet, Durga, and Ma'at.  The current richness of resource and practice arising now to help us heal and release personal and ancestral trauma--an energetic "lightening" of the individual heart as well as the heart of the modern human species as a whole, feels like such an integral part of this Great Balancing time we are in. I share much more in depth in my podcast here, and also here is a short video I created yesterday exploring what it means to be a Vision Carrier in our time, and describing my new Vision Carriers Circle beginning TONIGHT you can check out the video HERE and learn about and enroll in the Vision Carriers Circle HERE.
 Happy Aries Full Blood Moon Beloved Soul Family!We bloom in darkness these coming two weeks, descending into the Death, Magic and Ancestral Healing Portals of the Pluto/Scorpio realms and Samhain Cross Quarter.This morning the Aries Blood Full Moon is exact at 9:57 am central squaring Pluto (Sun Mars and Mercury also square Pluto this week), initiator of the Death Mysteries.  Over the coming week Sun, Mars and Mercury move into Scorpio--and we open to the primal aliveness and potent magic of the Scorpio Season.  From October 31 to November 7 we are in the Cross Quarter Threshold of Samhain, Day of the Dead and All Saints Day--where the veils thin between ourselves and our beloved Dead awakening our Ancestral Line.Mars remains in the Underworld--the beams of the Sun--until around November 23 where he rises as Morning Star in Scorpio, Warrior Initiate who has died to his old pattern of loving death and war more than life,  coming into his full power as Peacemaker and Guardian of Mother Earth.Mercury and Jupiter both stationed direct last Sunday/Monday and we now have 6 planets moving direct--surrender to the flow of where life wants to take you. We look our monsters directly in the eye. We wrestle with our Beloved Angel of Death, surrender to his embrace and find our lust for life. It's all about the squares in the coming week with Sun, Mars and Mercury square Pluto this week and next week Venus square Neptune and Sun square Saturn. Squares compel us to learn through discomfort, edges, tension and finally release. What feels like a crisis is an opportunity to break free from stagnancy and change in big and lasting ways. Venus in Sagittarius at the Third Eye Chakra continues to open our oracular sight.  The aquare to Neptune might precipitate a crisis or conflict where we must choose Truth sourced in Divine Insight and unconditional love rather than preferences sourced in fear of loss or change. Until we make this choice, confusion reigns and we cannot access the full personal power, aliviness and clarity offered to us in this Scorpio/Pluto season.
