Pisces Full Moon

Standard

What a beautiful Blue Moon we have today! A Blue Moon is when a fourth FULL moon occurs in one of the QUARTERS (Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter). The quarters usually have 3 moons each – one for each month. But back in the 1950s, one simple article in an almanac said that a blue moon happened when two full moons occur in the same month and it stuck.

That said, this Pisces Full Moon is dreamy and spacey. A nice place to lose yourself in for a while without worry about getting permanently lost – remember, the Sun is in Virgo! As if that’s not enough to pull you back to (this) reality, Mercury moves into Virgo tonight at 10:32 EDT. That’ll snap your thoughts back to paying attention to detail. So do your Full Moon Ritual early this evening!

Full Moons are times of fruition, release. A Pisces Moon is dreamy, visionary, romantic, sensitive. Gentle greatness. Artistic. Sympathy for the underdog. Think magical misty night. Romance.

Let yourself go, Virgo will pull you back.

Full Moon Ritual of Release

Have a glass of wine if you want. Me? I will indulge in creamy rich chocolateS and have a steamy cup of my favorite tea. Indulge yourself on this Pisces Moon. Give yourself a break from reality for a little while! Ritual is when we remember to breathe in the beauty of  life.

Set your dark bowl filled with water on the table in front of you and your light candles. I love floating candles. They add to the magical atmosphere created by the pillar candles. I love turning out all the lights and enjoying candle light. That’s my preference. Discover yours and go with it.

Write the things you want to release on dried bay leaves – the ones you buy in the grocery store. I find a Sharpie fine point works great. This is symbolic, this is yours, this is highly personal. Whatever you want to let go of can be drawn in a picture, written in a single word. Crush the bay leaf as you drop the pieces into the water. If you prefer, write it all out on paper then tear it into little pieces, letting go with each ripping sound and drop them into the water. The important thing is that you get it out of the mental/emotional into the physical so you can let it go. Writing it down is the physical stimulus.

If you’re a Taurus, you’ll probably feel most comfortable in your fuzzy old bathrobe. Libra will want to look coifed and perfect. Capricorn will be practical and Aquarius? She may want to really dress for the occasion. The point is, it’s YOURS. It doesn’t matter to anyone except to YOU. If you’re celebrating with friends, appreciate your uniquenesses. This is the time for delicious individuality. If you’re alone, appreciate YOUR uniqueness.

After you’ve indulged yourself and enjoyed your treats, thank the candles as you put them out. Thank the bay leaves and paper pieces for assisting you with your release. Thank the water for washing them away. Thank the bowl. Thank the pen. Thank spirit. Thank everything!!! Gratitude greases the wheels of the Universe. The Universe appreciates Gratitude. Try it and see.

As you pour the water down the toilet, thank the toilet for flushing away those things that no longer serve you.

Sleep well.

An Irrawaddy Dolphin Speaks

Standard

 

This post is so beautiful, I cut and pasted it from Facebook. If you are on Facebook, I highly recommend subscribing to Whale Communicators. Their messages from the cetaceans are filled with hope and inspiration. These days we all need, well ok, I need messages of hope, inspiration and love.

I also recommend their DVD set if you love whales and dolphins and/or are interested in interspecies communication.

 

The Irrawaddy (pictured below) are a fun loving, happy species of dolphin. I would call them a tribe ;0) of happy, fun loving dolphin.

We can make a difference, folks. We have to. It is up to us.

Whale Communicators

Communication with the Irrawaddy and Shannon Wise River Murray

 

When I grounded into the center of the Earth, opened my crown chakra to a blue communication color, and sent out a golden communication cord, immediately there were three Irawaddy Dolphins very excited to communicate. They appeared in beautiful blue-purple water as if they were looking into a window, each trying to get the best view! They were so much fun and sent so much Love to me. Here is our communication:

Do you have a message for me (or for mankind):

“Play more. Play means to enjoy and do: what is it you most love and do that as much as possible, non-stop! Real play leads to real laughter. Real laughter is healing and affects others – makes them feel better. We are always focused on helping each other feel better.

Humanity can do this, too. Humanity needs to feel better. Helping each other is a Circle of “feel better”. Meaning that each time you send a wish/desire for another to feel better, it sends an energy into the larger Circle. Each heart’s desire to help another goes out and it is always returned many times fold. (At this time the Dolphins are showing me a circle with all these points of light representing people along the edge. As I send out that energy for another to feel better, all the other points who are doing the same thing light up and return to me enmasse. We help ourselves feel better by first desiring to help another.)

If Humanity can understand that they are like a delicious fruit with many seeds. Each seed to plant is Love. Each seed of Love grows to produce many more fruits that have many more seeds. That is how each of you are. Your greatest power is to love. To send out as much Love as possible. It’s infinite! You are infinite! Consciously send out love.”

If you could depart one piece of wisdom to the human race you feel is invaluable for their evolution what would that be?

“When you love, you REMEMBER who you are. Evolution happens– it is a wild river that cannot be stopped. Accelerated, yes! Stopped? No. Everytime you love, you put a piece of the puzzle, your puzzle, back together. Each thread mends a broken heart.

Humanity does not see Itself. Each act of Love, whether it be sound, thought, feeling, touch or action ENGAGES the Mirror. Everytime you love, you see yourself, your True Self, in the Mirror and you remember who you really are. It is quite thrilling to see the magnificence of each other!!

Focus your [Mind’s] Eye upon another, ensure their well-being always and want the best and highest Good for them. Know that by doing this, you are tilling your soil, planting your Garden and reaping the fruits. Love is an ionic spin!! [of dazzling brilliance!- shown this.]”

Thank you so much for this! You told me and showed me at the same time! ūüôā

Tell me what you love most about life.

“Togetherness. Friendships. Playing together. Being with each other because it FEELS so good to be with someone who is happy like me. We love to twirl, spin with the spin of Love. We connect with Love’s spin in everything: the water, currents, plant, sunlight, bubbles, movement. Breathing is fun, too! To feel the oxygen in our blood feeding our muscles, prompting us to move and play!!”

You love your environment?

“We appreciate our environment just as we love and appreciate each other. It’s all the same. We interact with the Water, Sun, food, other species the same way. They are all alive and have feelings– able to return the Love in their own special ways. It feels so good to be loved in all these different and amazing ways!!

Nothing disturbs us because we don’t live in that vibration. Humanity lives there more often. We descend/encounter this vibration to give you messages of Love. It gets your attention. We BELIEVE in Love more than anything else. That is why we endure to assist in the Awakening.”

Do you have anything you want to say to me directly?

“Focus on the Love frequency. Practice sending Love to us and being with us. This exercises your heart and makes you stronger in this way. For your body, continue to ground and release energy that does not serve you and love from your heart. For your finances, yes they are improving! Focus on examples of Abundance in Nature. See the hundreds of acorns that are falling from the Trees to be gathered by squirrels, seeded for the next generation and mulched to feed the soil. Spend time acknowledging all the seeds that are in fruits. Slice open a melon and just marvel at the hundreds of plants that will produce thousands of melons and more for you and many others!”

Thank you so very, very much my new friends! I am honored to be given this beautiful Love and communication. What can I do for you right now?

“You can send Love into the Waters. Love and bless and remember that Water is one our greatest forces of change on the planet. Let Love circulate, spread and take over the planet through the Water. Love the water.”

Moon in Aquarius. Again.

Standard

Here it is again! Time flies when you’re having fun, right? Doesn’t seem like a month ago we were talking about this uniquely flavored moon.

No, it’s not a full moon, but it is an Aquariuan moon. It’s a wonderful time to embrace our inner weirdness¬†and open up to some creative endeavors we might ordinarily bypass.

Before you go pointing your finger at someone who is a bit different from the ordinary Рand thank GOD they are or life would be so incredibly b.o.r.i.n.g., just remember we all have Aquarius somewhere in our charts! 

Today thru Thursday afternoon, weird people will be acting normal and normal people will be acting a bit weird. If nothing else, it will be entertaining!

Embrace your uniqueness. Dare to be who you truly are! Laugh, love and listen!

 

Mars Entered Scorpio

Standard

On Thursday 8/23/12 Mars entered Scorpio. I didn’t have a chance to write a post about it because I was busy answering texts, emails and phone calls asking what the heck (I’m being polite) was going on!

Mars may be the planet of action, but it can be a bugger, too. Mars is the ancient ruler of Scorpio (the modern ruler is Pluto), which means Mars feels quite at home.

Scorpio is a water sign while Mars itself is associated with the element of fire. Fire + Water = Steam!

 

This Mars in Scorpio is intense. It is making us look deep within at old emotions we have buried deep and forgotten on the surface. Talk about steam cleaning!

Just about everyone that got in touch with me was having work related issues. I certainly was!

Blue Moon Astrology had this to say about the event:

MARS ENTERS SCORPIO

Thursday, Aug 23, 2012 at 8:24am PDT 

Mars in Scorpio is moxie: a steam-producing combination of fire planet in an emotionally-attuned water-element sign. The traditional ruler of Scorpio, it is here that the God of War strides especially strong, sometimes ominously so. Passion oozes. Mars’s usual marching orders require that he circumnavigate the land minds of emotion, and not waste precious time on such “feminine and frivolous” concerns asfeelings.¬†Ordinarily sapped by emotional outlay, Mars is generally too busy moving forward on outwardly-focused, male pursuits such as achievement and conquest. But when Mars strides in the feminine-receptive, water sign of Scorpio, the emotions ARE the power source, the fuel that mobilizes and vitalizes.

There is power in emotional intensity, no doubt about it, and¬†Mars in Scorpio knows how to harness it, for better or worse. Mars in Scorpio lives for intensity¬†and this placement increases the need for partners who can plumb the emotional depths with us, who possess the shaman’s skill at navigating through these dark realms of the soul. This is not a terrain into which many of us venture willingly, most of us turn tail and run when we stare into that abyss. It takes deep, emotional courage, and a kind of crazy abandon, which is why Scorpio, and its modern ruler Pluto, rule the watery 8th house of intense emotion and passion, not Libra’s airy 7th house of partnership. We must first pass the test of 7th house commitment before we are admitted through the gates of the 8th. With Mars now in Scorpio, we are all standing at these gates. How many of us possess the courage to walk through?

By the way, Mars will be here through the first week of October. It could be worse, ya know.

 

 

 

Sun Enters Virgo

Standard

The Sun enters the sign of Virgo today Virgo is MUTABLE EARTH and considered to be a ‘barren’ sign. Not a good time to plant even though it is an earth sign. Virgo is the time of harvest. The sheaves of wheat generally associated with Virgo represent wisdom, the reaping of what we have sown over the past few months. ¬†Virgo’s home in the chart is the 6th house whose key words are work and service.

Ruled by Mercury the Virgo mind is filled with knowledge and details, which it constantly seeks. Virgo is meticulous and will do things carefully and efficiently. Virgo seeks perfection.

The key phrase for Virgo is “I analyze”¬†

Where ever Virgo appears in YOUR chart (we all have each of the 12 signs in our charts) is likely the area of your life where you pay close attention to detail, which left unattended may reach the point of becoming stiflingly hyper critical. If this has happened to you, simply becoming aware of where Virgo appears in your chart can make a huge difference. Virgo is the area where you seek perfection. Controlled it is wonderful. Out of control, it is destructive.

Virgo rules assimilation, both physically and metaphorically.

 

 

Have a question on policy and procedure? Virgo will always have an answer. If they don’t know off the top of their heads, they will look it up and get back to you!!

 

 

 

 

Heresy

Standard

Isn’t it amazing how something so beautiful like the word ‘heresy’ can become so vilified that people were burned at the stake for it? Calling someone a heretic now, at least in my neck of the woods, is derogatory slang

Heresy comes from the Greek word¬†hairein¬†meaning ‚Äėto choose‚Äô, and that says it all really. The heretics are those who choose, whose ultimate source of authority is within, rather than without in the form of books and high priests/esses.” quoted from AstroTableTalk.

It’s all a matter of perception. It is human nature to view, understand and pass on this skewed understanding to others.

For example:

During an interview a member of another popular Russian band asked what was the big deal about Pussy Riot being charged with hooliganism that drew international attention and caused mega stars in the music industry to shout out on their behalf. He believed that they (Madonna, McCartney, etc) must have been “ordered” to say those things. He could not understand what the big deal was all about. If you haven’t heard about the ordeal, just google Pussy Riot and thousands of links will come up.

Another one that floored me, especially since I was around in the 1960s, was when a younger friend of mine told me he and his high school friends used to debate whether Jimi Hendrix was saying “Scuse me while I kiss th sky” or “Scuse me while I kiss this guy”. The internet hadn’t been invented by Al Gore yet (see??) and he didn’t have access to all that free information yet. Trust me when I tell you it was the later!

And that’s how it happens. I don’t believe we humans intentionally corrupt things, we simply see them from our limited perspective.
