This week Kaypacha says there is so much going on, he has to show us using his solar system program. The moon is in Gemini, moving into Cancer tomorrow, then into Leo on Sunday when we have the New Moon at 0 degrees and 44 minutes in Leo. Then we have a Sun/Moon/Mars conjunction, a very powerful and joyful New Moon. The Sun squares Uranus on the cusp at 28 degrees to 28 degrees. Mercury is coming up to Leo soon, conjunct with the North Node of the Moon, which will be in Leo for the next year and a half.
Venus is in opposition to Saturn, which will be exact on Monday, and the Sun will be exactly conjunct Mars next Wednesday.
Earth, Mars, Jupiter and Uranus are in a big T-square. Also, Black Moon Lilith is in alignment in Saturn and also in opposition to Venus, while Chiron is in alignment with Neptune in Pisces.
Venus in opposition has to do with seeds being sewn, babies being born, relationships being formed.
Jupiter in Libra and Saturn in Sagittarius have been there since last October, and Tom asks us these questions about our lives at that time. Where were you? What decisions did you make about finances, relationships, love? When these aspects came into place, it inspired many of us to question our basic values – and these aspects conjunct the Great Attractor, the biggest thing in the Universe which swallows galaxies and draws all of us inward, wind blowing off everything that’s not you, as you get drawn back into Source, the ultimate Sagittarian quest – the Holy Grail.
Venus has gone around 180 degrees now, hitting Lilith first – the ultimate search for meaning that goes beyond right or wrong. It is the quest itself. Venus in Gemini stimulates our curiousity, leads us to the Great Attractor, and to finding deeper connection and understanding and ability to own our truth, what it means to be human, to be alive, to love, to be male, female, on this planet at this time.
The thing is, we can make mistakes, we can cause others pain, we can be hurt by others, but there is something beyond this. My soul is calling me. Sun square Uranus indicates who I want and need in my life and who I don’t. Coming into Saturn has to do with time, commitment, boundaries. We are each stepping into our own King or Queen. This is when we learn when it’s right to say no and when it’s right to say yes. The challenge is this: I want to move into relationship, but I don’t want to lose myself. The other may wish to control me, or attempt to influence me to share their values.
I need to evaluate here – do we have the same values, the same truths, the same quests?
The challenge is to be in relationship without losing my core truth or being unable to speak my truth, or just going along with it because of not knowing what else to do. (I know how this can be).
The gift of New Moon in Leo is that we can all now be our authentic original selves, speaking our own truth. In square with Uranus mixes it all up. Uranus is the Great Mixer. What individual things existed before? After Uranus arrives, they are pulverized and born again. The other gift is knowing this: I am real, I am authentic, and I’d love to be loved. So we will put ourselves out there, paint our paintings, write our poetry, get up behind a microphone and record, send the world our message.
Kaypacha also talks a bit about the Great American Eclipse on August 21 – the climax of the eclipse season. As always, he is so worth taking the time to watch.
Be in the Now and not attached to what seems to be the truth – it’s all part of the quest. The Sun and Moon emerging out of Cancer – the Mother – is like all of us being born again. And now we have wings.
This week’s mantra: Like a butterfly emerging out of the cocoon, I have been transformed inside. All parts of myself now aligned in truth, I have nothing left to hide.
Yesterday, July 19, I turned 55. And I just discovered that the giant coronal hole in the sun which ejected solar winds towards the earth from July 14-17 hits Oklahoma directly – one of the few places in Oklahoma where this happens. No wonder things have been so curious around here. And busy.
Happy New Moon in Leo!!!!
Kaypacha: Namaste. Aloha. So. Much. Love.
Kamea: Rainbow Blessings of Love and Light. I love you all so much.
I live in the rainbow colors
of my heart.
I worship the sun and the moon
and all that is sacred,
whichever you choose to
call that which is Divine.
I honor both the Divine Feminine
And the Divine Masculine,
And see the synchronicity
of both emerging,
but after so many
with the scales tipped
too far, too far
from justice, the
scales must swing
in a motherly direction
can be restored.
These are the days of
the goddess rising.
Hecate, Kali, Persephone,
Ishtar, Innana, Nut. Freyja.
Kuan Yin, Athena, Diana,
Aphrodite, Hera, Pele.
See them dancing and blessing
the waters with love and prayer
in sacred sites everywhere.
She is rising in me and
she is rising in you.
Pondering on the dream I had almost two years ago, about all the masters, saints, avatars, wise ones, earth angels and boddhisatvas were gathered on a high flat mountain plateau like the one in Taos. The air itself was golden and a loud voice declared, “Ho, Dragon Slayers. The time has come to cease slaying the Dragon. You are all now to be Dragon Tamers. And all the keys will be found in the ancient texts, myths, holy books,songs and stories of all times.
For we are the writers of this epic human story, and it is huge. The whole Universe has been joyously awaiting our ascension into the Golden Age.
Even children’s books and fairy tales hold the keys. The Chronicles of Narnia give keys to dealing with planetary transformation, and also sacrifice, overcoming the deep dark secrets of magic through innocence and surrender, only to achieve resurrection, overturning the ancient dark secrets with the older magic of LOVE. Aslan, for C.S. Lewis, represents Jesus Christ. But also God, the creator of Narnia, and also providing the doorway into the new world when corruption brings Narnia to its demise. And the paradise he takes Lucy, Edmund, Peter and Susan is far more real and beautiful than either Narnia or Earth could ever be. “Farther up and further in!” Asian joyously sings as he leads his beloved children to their true home. Of course all their loved ones are there, for they have crossed over the rainbow bridge through a dirty stable door. Things are not always as they seem. The false prophet, an ape disguised as Aslan, is the one who brought war and corruption across the land. Perhaps Lewis was also prophetic, for there certainly are familiar themes in American politics (and other countries as well) going on today.
The two other books coming to my mind currently, containing golden keys to taming the Dragon are Heidi and The Secret Garden. Both stories emphasize the healing power of Nature. Both Heidi and Mary Collins from The Secret Garden lose their mothers at an early age. Mary also loses her father. Both are sent to live with relatives. Both have issues at first with their new homes, but after spending time out in Nature, each with a friend who guides them (Peter the goat herd in Heidi, and Dickon, the animal and nature loving brother of Martha, Mary’s nurse maid in The Secret Garden).
And they both have cousins who are crippled. Well to do children who are given everything their doctors and nurses and busy, mostly absent fathers can think of, except fresh air, sunshine and nature. Both are motherless as well. In both stories the heroines undergo deep personal transformation and healing, trials and tribulations, and after Nature teaches them her secrets, they share this golden key with their crippled cousins. Mary Collins’ cousin is Colin, Heidi’s cousin is Clara.
It is upon taking these children outside, Colin to the Secret Garden, and Clara to the Swiss Alps where Heidi returns to live with her beloved and troubled grandfather, that they both achieve true healing, within and without, and learn to walk again. And while Heidi and Mary are the facilitators and Nature the golden key, the other golden key is within each of them and each of us.
Which leads me to a scene in The Secret Garden where Mary and Colin are talking about the Universe. And Colin tells her about a holy man, one so holy that if one should be blessed to look into his mouth, one would see the whole universe. Mary argues with him about this idea, declaring it illogical, and Colin says it doesn’t have to make sense.
I feel Frances Hodges Burnett and Johanna Spyri were pointing out the golden keys to healing in these magical tales, just as Lewis was in the Narnia tales, for meditation can take us to other realms within.
As above, so below. As without, so within.
It is clearly evident this Mars and Mercury conjunct in Cancer along with the Sun opposing Pluto in Capricorn is causing some extreme behavior (and bizarre, and horrific) on the global scene, but at the same time people are praying, people are healing, people are gathering together and rising up for human rights and for our only planet.
There’s been times when I fell into despair and couldn’t get out of bed much due to many challenging health issues and depression (listing them anymore is claiming them and am done with that as best as possible). And then when I began spending more time outside, doing yoga, planting herbs for my cooking, coloring mandalas, meditating and going to my own inner sun did I begin to truly heal on a deep cellular level.
And we all are healing. We are each little holograms of the Universe, and we must be like hollow bones and keep our vessels pure.
Namaste, my friends. Blessed be.
Now it’s already July 01, and just getting around to the important aspects of this week. Been super busy! Yoga four times so far this week, a great physical therapy session, doctor visit which went well (my heart is strong), and four hot stone massages, three days with my Loralai and the sudden manifestation of a car. I was talking about getting one soon over a year ago, and at this point I had pretty much surrendered the idea, had written down the stages I needed to go through first, and suddenly my daughter was given a decent SUV and so she gave me her car. And my son JJ went out and bought himself a car yesterday. He’s a Virgo. Usually earth signs are very good at managing their money. I digress.
This week Kaypacha talks at us from a meadow overlooking a bay, but I am not sure of the location. It’s beautiful, though, as is the report.
Wednesday the Moon was still in Virgo, but she moved on into Libra yesterday, the beautiful energy of which was palpable last night. Just love Oklahoma summer night thunderstorms! Especially when just a couple friends visit. In Libra the Moon is influenced by Venus, creating potential romantic encounters. Mercury and Mars are conjunct all weekend, along with the Sun, which are all trine Pisces in Neptune, opposite Pluto in Capricorn, squaring it off. The Moon is conjunct Jupiter in Libra, bringing the feminine energies alive on this planet. Saturn is still in Sagittarius and Uranus is in Aries, and although Venus is still in Taurus, she is moving on into Gemini on Tuesday, creating a lift in the energies.
When the Moon reaches 9 degrees and 24 minutes of Libra, we will be in our first quarter square. I frequently feel inspired to light candles and connect with Nature in any way possible for the auspicious stages of the Moon (like sitting outside on my balcony next to my growing garden, but further out and away from civilization is preferable). Monday, when she is in Scorpio, she is going to oppose Uranus.
Also on Monday, she will trine the Sun, trine Neptune and sextile Pluto, which will be amazing. All in all, we will be having a Grand Cross with all the aspects going on.
The Cancer – Capricorn opposition creates a longing for connection, for nurturing, for touch. There will be a desire to connect with the other, friends, family, lovers, the community. We need each other for support, love, nurturing, procreation, and protection. At the same time Mars in Cancer will tend to lead us toward beautiful, sexual, amazing lovemaking connections. This is the weekend for it while Venus still basks in Taurus, one of the two signs she rules (Libra is the other, so hence a gob ton of Venusian energy to compliment three signs in Cancer and one in Pisces. Once Venus moves into Gemini, Pluto in Capricorn will be the only earth sign for a wee bit.
This is a weekend to fall in love, or fall back in love. Mars in Cancer opposite Pluto in Capricorn provides a strong magnetic pull, while Venus in Taurus is all about being in our bodies, honoring them, and loving ourselves first and foremost, but that’s what leads to love with another. When we are in love with life, with ourselves, and with the Universe, we radiate and attract love. It just happens.
Kaypacha then mentions one of Michael Moore’s films which I happened to watch a couple months ago, “Where Are We Going To Invade Next?” Moore goes to many different countries and asks important qualities about various topics like paid vacation time, mental health care, school lunches, shorter school days and work days, and brings up the powerful women of Iceland, who had a peaceful revolution and jailed their corrupt bankers. These women ask Moore how do the people in the United States sleep at night, where we are in a patriarchy on steroids and individualism has gone overboard. How can we be at peace with veterans and others living on the streets and the many other injustices going on which have gone rather amuck to a whole new extreme lately. We can learn a lot from Iceland!
The feminine focuses on community, as does the Age of Aquarius, and the South Node of the Moon in Aquarius will also call us to stand up for all our communities. But many have to wake up first.
He says all this and much much more, perhaps now that it’s the weekend you will have time to watch it, but my apology for the delay, time has been just whizzing on by. The shadow aspect of Cancer is getting all wrapped up in ourselves and needing attention, needing to be held, seeking approval, and being perhaps unconscious. The lighter side is the desire to nurture, care for the home and the children, and to give love and friendship.
Mars and Mercury opposing Pluto can also get people into a space of wanting more, more money, more sex, more, more, more until we are addicted in a codependent fashion. So this is something to be mindful of and keep our boundaries clear and our chakras balanced and auras nice and glassy smooth, not sponges at all. Jupiter in Libra encourages us to listen to other people and pay attention to their needs as well.
This week’s mantra: I can be a bottomless pit, of longing and needing more until such a time as I realize I am filled with love to the core.
Because we are love! That is our essence.
Kaypacha’s Farewell: Namaste. Aloha. So. Much. Love.
Kamea’s Farewell: A’ho Mitakuye Oyasin, my friends. We are all related. I love you and I finally love me.
Trickster always comes laughing.
He sees me stumble, sees me lose it
sometimes completely lose my sense of reason,
He sees me freak out and cry out in pain,
and he comes laughing.
He shows me how to learn
from those stumbling times,
how to laugh even when I am afraid,
how to be a bad ass spiritual warrior,
how to learn to not be wounded anymore,
how to sit still and listen
to this body,
this body talks
and can transform
bit by bit
and by leaps and bounds –
you choose the style
and together we can dance
and laugh with Trickster,
for He is here to help us learn.
He leads us to the dance
of the Rainbow Dream Warriors.
