Libra Full Moon | Becoming a Feminine Vessel

I wasn’t expecting to be inspired to write anything. I have been practicing ordinary connection to my body. I have a tendency to over use my mental-psychic gifts. I also need to heal my wound to focus on meeting goals. So I am willing to not work on anything and lay around and just BE even though that stresses my out, aka, it puts me face to face with my wound. My intuition is cracking her gentle nurturing whip on this point with me. So I have no expectations or goals for writing this. I am just going to express myself for the sake of expressing myself. The more I do this, the more I am present, and in tune not with my goals but with essence and loosening my assemblage points, heavy burdens, & misery. I am moving in and out of work. Like a beautiful lanky winding dance. I imagine myself belly dancing in the full moon light for my enjoyment. My rags are flowing, my eyes are open towards the moon & stars, and my silhouette is enveloped in the full moon light. That is when something hypnotic takes over me and my movements become meaningful, full of magical lilu energy. A lot of who I am is for no reason to the non-enchanted. To the naked eye my life has no meaning. Appeasing this perception has been my wound to heal lately, that perspective that I’m not living  up to my potential because I wasn’t born to have goals. My purpose to live. Live and be an example of what its like when you allow and accept. Its a really simple life with a wide range of experiences. But sometimes I get caught up in making goals and I choke the life and meaning out of my life.

This Full Moon in Libra, which is my birth moon has allowed me to see the beauty and purpose in my personal essence. The non-control of the feminine receptivity vessel is an entity and world unto itself and that is what I am, what I have, and what I give. I listen. This listening becomes a mystical experience. Listening becomes absorption of the essence of nature and what your eyes can see becomes a sensation. A sharing happens and a relationship with life holistic ensues. There is a natural healing in the wind blowing through the green-yellow leaves on trees. If you listen you from your window pane you may hear a story of open-ness, allowance, acceptance of what is, and the willingness to let it all fall away when it’s over. Listening without needing to respond is the secret of feminine creation. You don’t have to stress out to make anything happen. You can listen, breathe and absorb the healing gifts, ride the waves that have always been all around you. Libra Full Moon has reached me and touched my spirit and has deadened my resistance to simple rest and enjoyment of the dew drops that I love so much that lay on top of glass blades in the morning. My sensitivity to life is my life. I share it with all of you. Peace to you and Silim (meaning: ‘health to you’ in ancient Akkadian-Sumerian  language)

1 |Root Chakra | The Star XVII | Rune Magic Berkano |Red

Magic can happen within a twinkling of an eye, if you blink you might miss it. You have been planting the right seeds and pulling out the right weeds for months and maybe even years. NOW, right now is the time for an extraordinary transformation and a departure from surviving, procrastination, and low self-esteem to creative inspirational living. When you are inspired by divine energy you will have an abundance to energy to share with the world and those you love. The healing of your root chakra has helped you to develop into a compassionate God/Goddess. You have achieved Self-forgiveness and now you are ready to share your many gifts with the world. Literally out with the old in with the new, next, now. You may have uncomfortable stuck past life issues that are family related that may be too stubborn to just go away.

Meditation Recommendation:  Your Divine Inner Child knows your talents and how far they can take you. Lay on your back and place your hand on your pelvic region and imagine your inner divine mother/father loving your inner divine child from before birth, infancy, toddler, adolescent, teenager, and young adult. Watch this child’s gifts develop. See your Inner Divine Mother guide this blessed child into the heavenly gates of creative/business fulfillment and having it all. Family, Love, Career, Happiness, Healing, and Hope! Focus on the positive growth you are seeing in your life. The seed is sprouting and the shell will fall off naturally.

2 |Sacral Chakra | Vision Quest (Hanged Man) XII |Rune Magic Sowilo | Orange

It is time for you to take the time you need to take to  sift through your life and keep the fish and throw away the bones. Keep the values and beliefs that truly still hold meaning to you. For you are being called to higher level of Self-responsibility.  Clear out past stale energy, be aware of what and who penetrates your space, and start going on those morning jogs. You are being led by your guides to higher level of self-mastery. It is the next common sense step to initiation. Self-understanding may mean a change in morals, values, and interest. Where you may have been into esoteric studies you may not have been into the discipline of transformation. This is a whole new way of living. Finding the foods that fuel you and bring you enjoyment can be a challenge. Studying sexual ritual and understanding the meaning behind the power that you wield in the universe is a new responsibility. And it is a task that you can and must handle. You are going through a test of your will.  It is healthy to achieve fulfillment and you will go on an adventure to find the highest energetic expression of your pleasure.

Daily Ritual Suggestion: Make yourself a calendar according your biorhythms and moon cyclesand make it a daily habit to pay attention to how you feel after you eat, how much sleep you are getting, what exercises your body likes the most, what you watch on television and how it affects you. Make adjustments accordingly

3.Solar Plexus | Ace of Air |Rune Magic Kenaz | Yellow

The truth of who you are. Searching around in the dark for who you are and finding your innermost truth. It is clear to you who you are, what you want and where you are going. You have been a great student super studious and attentive to your lessons. You have been through many trials of weighing decisions because its been a past pattern to force yourself to please others, not wanting to hurt others feelings and now you are standing firm in your yes and your no. Now you will be rewarded with newfound clarity of what is good, what is useful, and what is needed. If you are still struggling with these issues it is only a  matter of time before you say Eureka! I don’t care about what others think about me, I am going to live my best life.

Ritual Practice | Be Decisive. Throw things away. Only keep what really holds meaning and inspiration to you.

 

4| The Heart | Two of Earth| Rune Magic Wunjo |Green

Your heart is full of Hope, Joy, Expectancy, Prosperity, and Good Luck. In order for your heart chakra to stay open and aligned roll with the punches.  Joy is not promised to you everyday. Change is the only thing that is consistent. One day you are on top of the world and the next day it’s the others turn to receive their 10’s across the board. Stay open and available for success and failure.  Success and Failure are both your divine teachers and all is the Goddess. Joy

5 |The Throat | Four of Air | Rune Magic Thurisaz | Blue

The tarot card and the rune are telling opposite messages to one another. The 4 of Air is saying that the conflict you are experiencing  will take a turn for the best if you play a passive role and give it a rest. Take on a ‘this too shall pass’ attitude. The Thurisaz Rune is telling you to take a stand, stand your ground, and even fight if it comes to blows.  Whatever the experience be true to yourself. It is ok to stand up for yourself, what you believe in and your boundaries. I love this message. It is wise to use discernment when there is conflict because how you use your power of communication is situational. Not all situations call for the same response. The goal of whatever responses you have in life is to make sure you are experiencing movement towards ascension and highest Self.

 

6 |Third Eye Chakra|The Medicine Man|Rune Magic | Purple

Your Vision is Crystal Clear and you are empowered from within and this because soon you will be blessed by your ancestral spiritual /physical inheritance. Your power is not going to come from force of will but by BEING. Your power is in your essence and this is a part of your inheritance. Its swell of energy that your ancestral line has worked really hard to attain. And you are the focal point of that power. You are in a space that you are willing to help humanity, your community, and your family within the gifts that are given to you by the Goddess. Relax into your BEING & ESSENCE. By Being you will allow the inheritance of your ancestors to materialize in the realm of your existence. This could be physical material possession like homes and land or it could be substantial spiritual gifts. Your ancestors have created a dharma that is all honed in on you at this time.

7 | Crown Chakra | The Three of Fire (R) | Rune Magic Blank | White

You may think that the more effort you put into the your spiritual walk the more rewards you will receive. Like saying a million hail Mary’s to get into heaven. Or spending your life like Mother Theresa being a Marty for the the poor in spirit  and neglecting your own personal needs. To that point Mother Theresa admitted on her death bed that she wished she would have enjoyed her life more and gave herself some pleasure and enjoyment. Fate & the Great Mysteries are at play with you and conspiring with and for your highest and best forward movement towards your calling, mission, love, & fulfillment. So you don’t have to work so hard. You can allow life to support you and wait on the right time, right person, and right ideas to come to you.  You are medium for the mystery to flow with, come to, and be with. The more simple you make your life the easier enlightenment can reveal itself to you. Because its there for you NOW. It always has been NOW and that is the great mystery.

 

 

 

New Moon in Sagittarius |Reflections and Adventures |A Tale of Two Hurricanes | My Journey Through the Caribbean

This year has sent a lot of us literally running for our lives. Fires, earthquakes, volcanoes, and hurricanes. I personally experienced the latter. I was living in the Virgin Islands having the adventure of my 30’s. In my 20’s I ran away with my twin flame to Venice Beach to do a martial arts movie and sell art, I become a walking bohemian. It ended roughly, my ego was bruised and I went back home with tail between my legs. It created a new fire and spark in me to create my life on my own terms and never depend upon another to do anything, to go anywhere, or to have an adventure. I set out to create a Self that was autonomous and willing to go at life alone. In July I embarked on a bold and courageous journey to move to the islands as a single woman not knowing anyone and never having even visited first. I had my wits, my common sense, my strength, my guts, and my spirit guides. I learned to ask my Guardian Angels to Support me to choose everything in my life. With no other compass I had to rely on spirit intensely for the first time in my life. And they never steered my wrong and my faith grew to epic proportions. I even looked around and found myself . . . get this, Happy. Then something out of a horror flick crept itself into my still ignorant false sense of security. With just the announcement of a possible Hurricane Irma that would hit St. Thomas sent me into a fight, flight, or freeze mode. I was anxious, fearful, and dry crying because It wasn’t a certainty until it was a few hours away whether Irma was going to hit us directly. The island is tiny, at at only 32 square miles. After it hit and I was safe my security was still shaken. Nothing was the same and nothing would ever be. I was changed forever. I saw myself using a machete to get through the jungle that blocked our drive way and passage to the homes of my bunk mates that had completely demolished. My community that was already close knit became ever closer on the island with nightly pot luck dinners with conversations about looters coming into our ritzy community and how prepared everyone was to fight and even kill anyone coming to loot. I am a black woman that was surrounded by my Caucasian brothers and sisters and I felt like they were talking about killing my people. I felt so torn. Even more torn about whether or not I should stay. It became like Lord of the Flies, who was going to be sacrificed or who was willing to sacrifice themselves for the good of the group. Was I going to stay and help on the long trek to rebuild the community or was I going to leave with the hopes that I could recover my online businesses, get peaceful sleep, take showers, have electricity, and not worry about food supply. I decided to leave and had to face some of my closes allies and friends looking at me as if I were betraying our pact of loyalty. So I headed to San Juan and less than a week had passed and I was faced with the same turmoil from Hurricane Maria, except, I knew no one beyond my Airbnb host and I only speak up to spanish III’s worth of spanish.  The shelter I was in was wet, and lots of glass windows and doors had been shattered, our diet consisted of ham & cheese sandwiches for breakfast and lunch and rice and spam at night. But, hey! I survived! I made onto a humanitarian flight that paid for my on-boarding and connection flights back to Atlanta. My initiation was just beginning.

I know for sure without a doubt that spirit is the most important, everything is a symbol in connection to spirit, it can and will all be swept away if ever mother-nature knows we need the lesson. Coming back to Atlanta I feel like a grateful princess warrior. Without a dime to my name just seeing green trees outside is a luxury. Hurricanes snap all trees in half, scalp every piece of green off of everything rooted into the ground, and even the sky heaves after the hurricane has left. My soul was aghast and I all I could do was be in awe of the Great Mother. That is how I plan to continue into 2018. Happy New Year!

November 18, 2017 New Moon Scorpio in the Houses | Shadow Integration

This year has been awesome, bad, good, and ugly for us all. This Scorpio New Moon has come in the nick of time to give that much needed martian energy and push to keep  us going and energized when we feel low on strength.  The charisma of Scorpio is that of a light at the end of the tunnel. Scorpio is that ex drug addict, ex pimp, preaching and sweating, and maybe slipping a cuss word in the pulpit, who rose from the ashes and lives to tell it like t.i. is to the inspired and mesmerized congregation. But first we have to surrender to our wounds and self-sabotage patterns in order to finally give them over to Mother Nature. When we admit to our most out of the way pain it makes a space for us to be aware of how Spirit is blessing us right now, instead of seeing our blessings as something that we will receive at a future date. Gratitude for what you have right now is a positive affirmation in the face of transformation. How you transform you  will be taken with you on the other side. Nothing is matured and harvsted that isn’t worked for.  During our weakest moments of hurt, pain, and crying for mercy mother nature gives us our biggest gifts of mercy. Scorpio New Moon is our opportunity to go with the flow, with this energy we have extra help. We need it. We need to see, to know, to examine, so that we can turn in a new direction. Not that we are guilty of committing a crime, but may be in danger of not making to the other side if we don’t heed Scorpio stinging warning. Change or else. We feel it, it feels exciting, with Scorpio in each house it’s not can we do it, its how we do it. Be kind to your healing, be kind to your transformation, come closer and draw nigh to the Mother.

These videos were done live in my Facebook group Tarot Readings and Awakening Support. I am going to go through the houses and how they may be affected by the New Moon in Scorpio for November 18, 2017. The first video is houses 1,2,3, and 6. The second video is houses 4,5,7,8,9,10,11, & 12. I pull cards from the Shaman Deck and the Ask your Oracles Deck.

Full Moon Taurus November 3-4 2017 Ritual and Support

The Taurus Full moon is beginning starting 11/3 and 11/4. The tarot cards that I would like to show you that represent Taurus and the full moon together. Taurus energy ask, what makes you feel comfortable at home, what activates your senses, and why? Because Taurus needs its creature comforts at home to rest and repair from working hard. Taurus rejuvenates with good home cooked meals, candle lit bathes, emotional open-ness that all lead to abundance, fulfillment, and prosperity. On the first day of the full moon clear your space, clean your home, make it comfy, smell good, plump your pillows, get your warm blankets out of the cedar chest. See how content you are in your home. You really do have everything you want and need right under your nose. This represents the 4 of cups. Sometimes we don’t like to clean and make things intricate because its temporary like the little girl in the 4 of pentacles building her sand castles, she puts a lot into those castles, without regard that the ocean is going to come and sweep them away. You can only control what you can do and effort you put into something, like everything else in life, what happens next is up to the Gods but that shouldn’t stop you from doing your best to make your ritual the best it can be for the joy of it all. This has been a rough year for us all and the 4 of swords represents taking a pause and centering in on yourself for some self-care and meditation. Prepare your mind and ask yourself what would make me feel the most free, prosperous and abundant? the keyword is Pause. Taurus is great at relaxing. You don’t have to have the answer right away, you can ask and walk away until the next night of the full moon. Its good to show that you trust in the Great Cosmic Mother to show you the way to consciousness. So ask and let go. During the full moon it brings our emotions to a peak of heightened awareness also take a pause to get real about how you really have been feeling to make room for the question you just asked. It is hard for the universe to show you the right way to move if you are clogged up with excess emotions. When we are bogged down and feelings are overwhelming our mind and awareness can be taken up by clutter. It is important to remove clutter inside and outside to manifest. The next evening if you are not all the way clear, you could possibly clearer than you were before. We have been having a rough year, what now do you want to manifest that would make you feel like celebrating your life? The four of wands is a celebration, you made through your initiation period, you made it through the rough patches, you got the greatest gifts life can offer, home, health, marriage, happiness, comfort, and support. Whatever will create the life you want write that down in a journal. Go outside during the second night of the full moon and sing to the Mother Goddess of All Consciousness and let her take over. You can continue your ritual purging throughout the next 10 days with cleansing bathes, healing blockages, and making a list of what you can do to manifest your dreams. The last card I pulled is the 10 of cups, the card of wish fulfillment, your intentions and rituals for this full moon is ongoing throughout the next 6 month even. Look for your manifestations into next year. Happy Taurus full moon!
