Super Moon + Equinox = POWER BOOST!

Don't unstrap from the wild ride just yet, my friends! There is another marvelous convergence this weekend - just around the corner!
Take the Equinox (Spring north of ye olde Equator, Autumn south of it), which is a Power*full event to begin with, as day and night are of equal length. Add a full moon that is closer to the earth than usual, with its Power*full energies, and we are set to receive a boost to our beings that might just light all of us up like Yule Trees! (lol)
They actually call these full moons "Super Moons" over at NASA...the moon comes very close, and appears larger and brighter in the night sky, once every 18 years or so. The "18" is very significant in a way outside of NASA's purview. See, "18," in the Judaic/Kabbalic tradition, corresponds to Chai, which translates to "life." Play with it a little bit and you'll see we're going to get a huge shot of Life-Energy this weekend. Huzzah! :-)

So what does this mean for Jane and John Q. Metaphysicist?
You might feel that "six pack of Red Bull" energy burst. You might feel completely drained. You might feel that everything is possible. You might feel that nothing is possible. In other words, there's no "one" way you're going to feel. I can, however, say these things:
~If there are still any Shadows that need clearing, prepare to have them kicked up into the light of your Awareness, and in an "You Will Deal With Me NOW!" way to boot.
~If you feel at all spacey or scattered, ground. Ground, ground, ground, unless you're physically ill. (If that's the case, feel perfectly permitted to do absolutely nothing.) Then ground some more...by Touching The Earth, with your hands, your bare feet, and/or lying on the ground with your whole body. (Lying on a blanket or towel while on the ground is totally okay.) Basically, you don't want to "hold on" to any of the energy. It will do the necessary Work within your body as needed as it passes through you.
~Send the energy into the Earth with Intention. We can - and will - serve as conduits for this energy. Use the Intention that you feel most inclined to send, such as Love, Peace, Serenity, or whatever your Intuition suggests.

I've also heard a lot of peeps anticipating an earthquake in (Southern) California in the very near future. I disagree, and here's why: Follow the circle. We started last Easter in SoCal, yes. Then we jumped to Chile, over to New Zealand, and up to Japan. There's another step before the circle is "completed" in California; I'm seeing someplace in the Pacific Northwest, perhaps, maybe even Alaska.
Having said that - WE CAN SET THE INTENTION TO DISSIPATE THE ENERGIES IN A SAFE WAY. Just because we're "supposed" to have an earthquake doesn't mean we have to experience another one. We can set an intention for the energies to be dispersed in a non-focused way instead. Remember: Energy Flows Where Intention Goes. I suspect this lesson needs to be relearned by many, myself included!

See y'all after the Power Boost, when the dust has settled a bit...


A Timeline for Transition

Okey dokey, friends, time for my Big Reveal.
I've been sitting on this timeline for a while now, wondering when it would be appropriate to share it. With the opening of the main Ascension Portal by the Grandfathers (Uranus & Saturn - skip back a couple of posts), I've downloaded the final bits of Information and am ready to present a rough sketch of what's going to unfold for the near future. My Unseen Posse also agrees: Now is the Time to Share!
Let me just throw in a wee disclaimer first: this is "A" timeline. It's not "THE" timeline. There's this little thing called Divine Free Choice that we have to take into consideration; we, as a Whole, can speed up, slow down, or bypass certain portions entirely! Got it? Good, because here we go...

3/11/11-9/11/11: the Great Awakening, which began earlier this year, will continue. Soulquakes and physical earthquakes will continue to shake folks to their core, test their mettle, and shatter all Illusions currently being held in Collective Humanity. This is, however, concurrent with a surge of Opportunity - never has their been a better time for folks to throw off the yokes that oppress them and follow their Passions to live Authentic Lives! Wake Up and Seize the Day!

9/11/11-11/11/11: A Great Healingway unfolds. More than ever, we will have opportunities to practice Love, Forgiveness, and Compassion. The time will be ripe to release old Shadows for good - which is exactly what is required. Go through your life uber-carefully, for this will be the "last time" that you'll have a chance to release everything and anything that no longer serves you. Once you pass through the Triple-11 Gate, what's in your life will be what you Work with, on all levels...so make sure you're in your "happy place" with everything you need!

11/11/11-11/11/12: My Unseen Posse calls this The Diamond Year; this is the first phase of the actual Transition, where one reality will split off from the other. Think of it this way - there are a pair of highways sharing the same part of road right now; eventually, these highways split from each other. They may both still go in the same direction, but one will bend to the left, and the other will bend to the right. We're still moving along the "joint" reality-highway part, but come November 11th, the two reality-highways are going to split. Which direction are you going to be headed? (And in case you're wondering, I have no blessed idea what this is going to look like, at least not right now! I might get a better idea later; if I do, I'll pass it along!)
The Diamond Year is going to look like the traditional pagan "Year and a Day," but with a slight twist: 2012 is a leap year. Thusly, this span of time is going to contain 367 days, instead of the "usual" 366 days this type of year holds. Playing with the numbers, I saw it reduced down to "7," and got very excited...Faerie and Earth Energies are associated with this number! So this hints at one of the directions we'll be going, at any rate!

11/11/12-12/12/12: Phase two of the Transition unfolds. I am advised that this may be a time of Special High Intensity Transformation, as massive realignments take place after the reality-split is complete, in time to pass through the Triple-12 Gate. This lasts roughly 30-31 days.

12/12/12-12/21/12: Phase three of the Transition, lasting 9-10 days. The changes are "locked in" for our planetary system's journey over the Galactic Core, which begins in 2012 and continues through 2014. What we've created at this point in the Collective Journey is what we're going to work with for the next several decades; that's why it's so very important to get that Vision defined to the tiniest detail NOW! We're going to get exactly what we wish for!

Tiny numerological note: Phases two and three = 40 days. This is a number that resonates deep within the Collective Psyche!

2012-2014: Passing over the Galactic Core = the Great Grand Mother of all Power Surges! This is why we're experiencing a whole bunch of physiological and genetic modifications now, because this is going to push us beyond anything we know, or can dream of. Beyond your wildest, most expansive dreams is how the Unseen Posse phrases it.

2014-2150 (approximately): In 2150, the astrological charts will have to be rewritten entirely, because the Cardinal, Fixed, and Mutable signs will have shifted. This will be the "physical" beginning of the Age of Aquarius. What will unfold in the interim? WORK!
We will have roughly thirteen decades to undo the damage that has unfolded over the past eight thousand years (give or take a century) in the Human Collective, and just maybe find our way into the Unity Consciousness that Aquarius represents. This is the Very Bright future that we've been yearning for, and the journey towards it begins now.
Once you have completed your journey over the Galactic Core, you are indeed finished with one Journey, but you will begin another...and it will be marvelous. (the Unseen Posse)


For Your Use: a Rite of Re-Affirmation

Hello again in this very delicious time! Potential is sizzling in the air like a lightning stroke about ready to descend to the earth! At the suggestion of one of my soul sisters, I present a small rite that you can do in the comfort of your own home to take advantage of the energies swirling about.

Timing: tonight would be excellent, as we are beautifully in between the start of the Ninth Wave (of energy, according to the Mayan calendar) and the opening of a significant Ascension Portal (remember the Grandfathers?). This can be done one, three, or nine nights, which would take you to the first night of the full moon (3/18 - a power date in itself!)

Props: Not necessary, but if you like to use a focus object, here are some suggestions:
Candle - in the color of white (for Spirit), light blue (for Peace), or pink (for Love)
Crystal - clear quartz, rose quartz, amethyst (either singularly or in a cluster)
Alternatively, you can fill a small bowl with water and add some salt to it...Earth + Water = the Divine Feminine.

The Rite...
Sit at your altar or meditative space. If you're outdoors, bundle up if necessary!
Consider your personal purpose. What are you here to do in this Time of Transition? Raise your children to be fully realized citizens of the New Age? Help out those who are in need with all of the Love in your heart? Follow the path of your bliss and let your Authentic Life unfold around you? (It can be anything, really.)
Now, can you state your personal purpose in one sentence? Work with it until you can, then declare it aloud: "My purpose at this time is..." If you're into writing, write it down on a piece of paper. Keep this paper in your sacred space.
Next, consider the Vision you're holding for the Earth and Her Children at this time. What change are you most wanting to see in this moment? World Peace? Sustainable Community? Universal & Unconditional Love? Again, compact it into one sentence - "I am holding the vision for..." Write it down if you're so inspired.
Finally, see how your personal purpose plays into the fulfillment of your greater Vision. (It does, trust me; take a bit of time to play with creative visualization if you can't "see" it right away.) See these visions as already manifest in the World of Form. Declare your affirmation in active language. As an example - "I affirm that my children are conscious citizens of a self-sustaining society that is living lightly on the Earth." Finish your declaration with "It Is So!" three times. Again, if you wish, write it down, keeping this affirmation in your sacred space.
Ground into the earth. Extinguish your candle, thank your stones, cover your salt water.
Repeat if desired. :-)


Forward, March!

So, are we having fun yet?
I don't know about anyone else, but I thought the (lunar) month we just finished was most fascinating. The gist of my "adventure" was stepping into the Present Moment with the knowledge that I am leading the Priestess Life I had been desiring to live, Right Now. It doesn't look at all like I was expecting - but it is as deep and juicy and rich and vibrant as was promised! And it also puts my life into a lovely perspective...there is nothing "wrong" in how everything is unfolding, and all is indeed well, despite occasional thoughts and appearances to the contrary!

I mention this last bit of "Nothing's wrong, all's well," because in the next few months, many of us are going to be using that as our mantra for the near future. The "main event" for 2011 is about to unfold in the skies above us, just in time for the usual energy surge provided by the Equinox. The Grandfathers of Space and Time will be opening a gate on March 11th, and the Grandmothers will march through it to spread their message of Tough Love.

The "Grandfathers" I'm referring to are Uranus and Saturn. Uranus is the first of the so-called Sky Gods (yep, older than Yahweh, though not by much!), so we can call him the God of Space, as in "3-D space." Saturn, aka Kronos, is none other than Father Time, as in "Linear time." (We get the word chronology from Kronos, you see.) So as we are preparing to transcend conventional Space and Time, here are the Grandfathers opening the gate which will take us through to "the other side." I can see it's a gate because Uranus is going to be in the sign of Aries, and Saturn is in the sign of Libra - directly opposite each other in the heavens! Let us acknowledge them with gratitude as they take one final bow. The Collective Agreements of "space" and "time" have served us well; now we shall be making some new Agreements! :-)
Let me also take one moment to praise all aspects of Divinity that Saturn is standing in Libra while all of these changes are unfolding! Any other sign would have given us quite a wilder ride, as if this ride wasn't wild enough already; trust me on this! (Someday I'll discuss the "Saturn Return," and if you don't already know what that means, you'll have a very good grasp of things afterwards. Then you too might praise all aspects of Divinity that Saturn is located where he is!) ;-)

As for the Grandmothers, I invite you to sniff around a bit. Googling "13 Indigenous Grandmothers" or "Little Grandmother" would be a pair of excellent starting points. (Yes, I know there's some controversy, especially around Little Grandmother, right at the moment. Listen to her messages first, and see if they resonate within you...then choose whether or not you will "follow" her.) They, and several others, are the Voices of the Divine Feminine right now. They are conveying a message of Tough Love: in order for us to evolve, we need to face the "inconvenient truths" in our lives and make different choices. "Business as Usual" isn't going to cut it any longer. How we choose to act, and the actions we choose to take, are up to us, but living in a different way - a more sustainable way - is absolutely necessary and essential if we are to complete the Ascension process. This is evident in the news that's floating all around us: the Power-Over Dominators' paradigm is crumbling before our eyeballs, and not a moment too soon!

To sum up:
March 4th. New Moon. The energies that have been pooling together through January and February are beginning to move in earnest; we can now feel the Quickening pulse that went out at Imbolc!
March 11th. The Grandfathers open the gate. (Uranus in Aries, Saturn in Libra)
March 21st. Equinox. Power Boost!

With the opening of the gate by the Grandfathers, the next six months will feature significant and very visible activity. Soulquakes will increase in intensity, as the Mass Awakening unfolds across the world. This "first wave" will culminate just before the next Equinox...and guess when that is? Yup, 9/11/11! Needless to say, circle your calendars for some heavy-duty ceremony on that date! This has the potential to be the greatest of all Healingways!
The "second wave" will stretch from 9/11/11 to 11/11/11 - the entry into what I've been advised to call The Diamond Year, and the beginning of the Great Time of Transition that has been prophesied. The Numbers are coming together, and they're bringing massive energy with them! Are you feeling me? ;-)

For the next several months, if you start feeling at all spacey or overwhelmed, Hie Thee Into Nature! I cannot emphasize that point enough! Mother Earth will happily cradle you in Her arms as you get out into fresh air and sunshine and reconnect with the Authentic.
This reconnection will feel ridiculously easy, and there's an excellent reason for that: The "new" reality, the "true" reality, is the Natural World! The Collective Agreement we've come to call "civilization" is the illusion; that's why it seems to be (and IS) dissolving. Great Mama Gaia isn't going to explode, or dissolve, or anything like that. She is simply calling Her Children (that's humanity) back home, back to a simpler, Natural Way of Life. The significant question is, How many of us will actually hear and heed Her call? That is to be determined...and we've begun to find the answer.

Listen to your heart. Are you hearing the call to Come Home to Mother?
