New Moon in Sidereal Scorpio, November 29, 2016

As mentioned at the last full moon, this will be my final blog entry for now (I may come back to this at a later date). This journey began with a new moon, and appropriately ends on one. I have come to the end of this mode of exploration and sharing. I can’t even begin to articulate the deep healing and profound transformation the inquirey into the Great Year, Goddess Consciousness and the implementation of it’s wisdom and tools has brought to me. When I look back over the last two and a half years, I am staggered.  Continue reading

Musings on Dreams and Dreaming

[Dreaming] is no mean art: for its sake one must stay awake all day. ~Friedrich Nietzsche

I was looking for a quote about dreams to start this article off. The only ones I found with the search word ‘dream’ in it were about accomplishing goals. I think that says a lot about how much we don’t value sleeping dreams. I settled on the quote by Nietzshe and substituted ‘dreaming’ for his word ‘sleeping’.

I have been noticing and recording my dreams since I was 10 years old. It began with a recurring dream that was very uplifting and left me horribly sad on walking, discovering I was back in my ‘other’ life. This event began my conscious investigations and ruminations that dreams meant something more than an entertaining interlude between waking and waking. As our everyday ordinary reality is important in that our interactions in the world directly affect and reflect our developing maturity and ultimately our emerging spirit, I felt our dream lives must be important too.

The Age of Scorpio (20,000 – 17,500 BCE) finds our consciousness reaching ever upward, longing for the Divine, as the claws of the constellation of Scorpio reach up toward Libra, anticipating a long awaited Golden Age of unprecedented ease, peace and harmony. It is a time of sweetness when life is not quite perfect, but optimism is so high, joy and love so fierce that most always the correct path is inevitably known and taken. Continue reading

Of Divine Durga and Kali

The Myth: Goddess Durga was created from the fire issuing from the mouths of the divine trinity, Creator/Preserver/Destroyer, to defeat Ignorance in the world. She is very much related to the ancient Egyptian Sekhmet in this purpose. Durga is depicted riding a  tiger, and having eight arms each wielding a divine weapon of power as She goes into battle.

Ignorance is personified by the Buffalo Demon, Mahishasura, and Durga battles the beast and his army that the gods could not subdue. It was said that Mahishasura was invincible, except to a woman, and Durga does destroy him. However, three demons, Sumbha, Nisumbha, and Raktavira, She could not destroy. Enraged that She cannot finish Her task, Kali springs fully formed from Durga’s forehead to complete the job. This is strikingly similar to the Greek Zeus/Athena myth that appears during the patriarchal shift. Continue reading

The Age of Libra – the Peaceable Kingdom

If you are new to this site, or have just missed it to begin with, please read this article, the fourth of four groundwork articles. This information will help you to personally get the most from this New Moon Healing Cycle: how to apply the healing suggestions, and to make the Great Year Cycle a powerful healing experience each month, each year.

While researching this information, I have found tantalizing bits here and there, remembered fragments and subconscious longings bubbling up into the collective conscious through art, story, and myth about the Age of Libra.

The Age of Libra (approximately 17,500 – 15,000 BCE) marks the zenith of human consciousness (not to be confused with technical achievement). It is the first of two ages of the Satya Yuga as the ancient Vedics called it; the Golden Age by the ancient Greeks; Zep Tepi, The First Time, by the far ancient Egyptians. That many diverse cultures have a story about it is an important clue to its veracity. We can never be certain how long an age lasted, or indeed how long the Golden part of the Golden Age lasted. It could have been relatively short – or not. I feel that the ages are variable, but  average 2000 year per age just to keep things simple. Continue reading

Musings on the Dark Goddess

Two Goddesses have recently asserted themselves into my life. I think they are important for us all.

Lilith was originally a Sumerian Goddess. In the Judaic/Christian myths, she was the first wife of Adam and made from similar substance: Earth. Adam was constructed of dust and Lilith from minerals. She refused to be subservient and when that was expected of her, she left. The patriarchs then painted a hideous picture of her as having copulated in the wilderness with the Devil and spawning demon children, bringing Evil into the world. She was even said to be the slayer of children. I reject these patriarchal embellishments since I have been shown a different story that seems closer to Truth. Continue reading
