Venus, the planet of love, beauty, sensuality, and feminine grace, governs both Taurus and Libra. Today, as we welcome in the New Moon in Libra, we are brought into the sphere of Venus’s warm embrace.
Many are leery or downright afraid to work with Kali Ma. Most of the information we find about her pertains to her wrathful side. But there is so much more to her than that. She did embody wrath, yes. But that is because she had reached her breaking point, and was fed up with the carnage she was witnessing. Her creation was literally sprung forth from the need to push back to reset the balance. Her story, or background, or whatever we choose to call it, is expansive and has several far reaching versions to it, all very intricate and fascinating to learn about.
Goddess Antheia is a wonderful Patron to draw upon for those who are seeking stillness, serenity, peace, kindness, and a return to innocence and youth in their lives. It is said that when she appears, some can smell the aroma of fresh floral fragrances, sweet honeysuckle, or dew drops of honey in the atmosphere.
His story is filled with questions, controversy, and differing points of view that scholars have trouble agreeing upon. He was noted to be an Apostle of Christ and trusted member of Jesus’s inner circle. Yet some say he was not even part of the original 12 Apostles, and didn’t adhere to Jesus’s ideologies or doctrines until much later, long after Jesus was said to have died. In fact, it was the witnessing of the Resurrection of Christ that sparked the Apostle Saint James’s conversion. In addition to witnessing two other significant events, this transfiguration is what brought James into the adherence of Christian teachings.
To make Moon Water, it’s important to first know what you want to do with it. If you plan to ingest it the next day, you’ll want to take a jar, glass, or container of distilled, filtered, or spring water, and set it outside to soak up the lunar energies of the Full Moon. Do not use plastic. Glass is best but ceramic works as well. Metal can be conducive to EMF’s, which can influence and alter the molecular structure of your water. So, it’s best to use glass if possible.
Holding space for Pause is essential right now. We have 8 Retrogrades happening in the skies currently.
Meet the Orisha Obba, the Goddess of Sacrifice in matters of love; venerator of fidelity, marital sanctity, the happiness of lovers, and protectress Warrior of children and devotees. She is a protectress from danger.
Obba is associated also with lakes, ponds, and rivers, where water is her natural element. She is named after the Obba River in Nigeria. In a triune together with Oya and Yewa Habita, they represent a trinity of Dying Goddesses who offer support and guardianship of the cemeteries, to assist and guide the spirits of the dead. This is very similar to the energies of the Haitian Death LWA/LOA, Maman Brigitte and her counterpart, Baron Samedi, who also support and guard the cemeteries, to assist and guide the spirits of the dead.
There is a distinct scent that antique shops give off; the scent of old wooden cabinets, vintage clothing, perfumey old candles, used worn toys, old records, dust covered silk flowers, and paper goods that have collected moisture. It is a scent of memories, lost love, nostalgia, and serene remembrance.
Ascension Plateau’s usually happen as a gap between stages of spiritual growth. It’s part of the rhythm of the ascension cycle, like exhaling or sleeping between periods of wakefulness. Because we are in a physical body, there are steps we must take to absorb what we develop and learn, before we are on to the next phase. It is what our brains need sometimes in order to capture the mundane, so we don’t lose touch with physical 3D in the process of attaining 5D coherence. I like to think of it like a plane that is ascending in altitude. If it shot right up without acclimating to changes in atmospheric pressure, the turbulence and disorientation would likely cause a crash. So, it has to be done in stages.
Night and day become equal unto each other as the Sun crosses the Equator from North to South. Simultaneously below the Equator, the Southern Hemisphere is welcoming their Spring Equinox, where new life is celebrated.
The Autumn Equinox sets a tone for equalizing light and shadow, and harmonizes the elements. Much like the Temperance Card, Two of Pentacles Card, and Justice Card in the Tarot, the theme here is one of balance and cooperation.
Sometimes considered the time of the Second Harvest or Full Harvest, we begin the process of storing food, reaping what we have sewn into the Earth, and preparing for the deep chilled slumber of Winter’s keep.
