Mothering the Myth- Taurus Full Moon Eclipse

Mothering the Myth- Taurus Full Moon Eclipse

Taurus Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse

Friday November 19th, 2021

12:57amPT/3:57amET *For exact times of the eclipse visible in North America visit timeanddate.com

This Taurus Full Moon brings with it beginnings and endings.  With the nodes at the final degrees of Gemini-Sagittarius  (or rather the first, since the nodes move backwards) bringing is the first taste of what the next 18 months of eclipses along the Scorpio-Taurus axis will bring.  We are in the space of weaving- weaving stories, dreams, visions, archetype and myth; and preparing to bring them into form.

Ceres, the archetypal mother, goddess of fertility, the harvest and grain sits beside the North Node.  She indicates something ripe and ready to give birth within the Mind of the collective fueled by individual experience.  Gemini is the storyteller, myths and mind magic.  We may be called to nurture the inspirations that are coming in now, to mother a new mythology.

This New Mythology will be crucial as we face powerful changes in 2022.  It will need to be adaptable, self-correcting, living.  It will need to serve us as Scorpio SN is leaving behind old desires, outdated and not useful as the Taurus NN inspires us to  care for what we have.  Give thanks and gratitude for the present moment.  Embodying that which we desire instead of seeking it outside of ourselves. 

Seeing as the south node is about spiritual purification we will collectively be purifying our desires, our will and our profound sense of power within. 

These eclipses will bring the purification of the outdated, arcane relationships with power across human civilization and within the human psyche as we seek to cultivate values and embody them.  To live from a place of naturalness within our being.  To practice Being.  Being at one with the Universal Being as well as honoring the individuation of being ourselves.

We are forever in a dance of individuation and re-merging.  Of Merging and Emerging.  This very dance is the Nature of Life.  That sacred thing which we find ourselves a part of.  Be a part of it.  Be a part of your life.  Embody yourself. 

But how do we become more embodied?  Is it through making a million videos of ourselves dancing and typing blurbs about how embodied it is?  Or is it leaving behind the tech to climb a mountain, plunge the depths of canyons. Slither between rocks into the womb of the Earth, Dance beneath her stars with NO-ONE watching but the Gods and Goddesses themselves?  What makes you feel embodied is what makes you feel alive.

Jupiter in Aquarius is squaring the eclipse representing the fall of old ideals and idols.  The Gods of old are dead, it has been said.  If so, let us erect new monuments, new leaders, new visionaries within ourselves this time.  We can pray to the stars and remember that we too are stardust. 

The planet of purpose and our beliefs asks that we reevaluate the gods of technology and modernism.  Do social media, zoom calls, western medicine or their ideals truly serve us in meeting our deep psychological needs for intimacy and a healthy and free embodiment of our human experience?

This is a moment to pause and deeply reflect on what is coming up for you around your relationship with money, beauty, body image, food and food security, relationships and the right use of power.  Eclipses are unpredictable by nature, so awareness and self awareness are the guiding light through the portal  that we may make deeply informed decisions now and in the coming year. 

Eclipses are of the nature of magic.  They are portals that align the energy bodies of the Sun, Moon and Earth exactly.  The Moon, who brings souls into being comes directly between Earth and the Source itself, the Sun.  This symbolizes something spiraling out of the deep psyche of humanity for transmutation.  

The challenge is to take all of our deep psychological work and be an embodiment of it.  To let it inform our very sense of being, without actually being all of our triggers, traumas and suffering.  But instead, to see it for the great mystery that it is, and the magic we have to play with it.

Taurus is the relationship to our bodies, and the coming year will be focused very strongly on how we are moving towards a healthier relationship with our embodiment, one that is more aligned with the Laws of Nature.  With Uranus in Taurus playing a key role in some of the eclipses there will be a focus on freedoms relating to our bodies and our ability to live freely embodied in this world.

This is a moon for deep introspection aimed at alchemization so that we may extract our power that has been hidden in that shadow of rage, shame, guilt or abuse.  You were born to embody your full self, truly and beautifully.  To walk gracefully in alignment with your purpose, loved, held and fueled by every mistake and hardship.  

May we see our struggles as the greatest opportunities for growth, reclaiming our power by recognizing that every undesirable aspect of ourselves is actually a misguided attempt at getting love.  Let our hearts see this truth with acceptance and we can redirect the will towards healthier and more abundant visions of living in harmony with ourselves and all of Nature.

Blessed Being,

Aries Full Moon-Seeing the True You

Aries Full Moon-Seeing the True You

Full Moon in Aries Wednesday October 20th 2021 7:47AM PT/ 10:47am ET

Controlling or forcing others to change or obey rarely works.  And even if it does, we end up with someone who has been broken by shame or guilt into submission.  This is not healing.  This is not true transformation.  But to offer a space of total love and acceptance, this allows the barriers and defensiveness to fall and the soul to blossom open.  A human who has been embraced in the totality of their existence can open to spiritual awakening and truths that effortlessly alter the outer behavior we were seeking to control in the first place.  This is the way of soul-healing called for by Eris and Pluto who are integral in this Full Moon taking place Wednesday.

Eris is calling that we no longer dishonor and skirt Natural Order, both within and without.  Pluto in Capricorn squaring to Eris in Aries requires that our transmutation be alchemical, soulful, true and lasting.  Pluto in Capricorn since 2018 has been challenging our societal conditioning.  Confronting where we had structures and labels placed upon and possibly beaten into us through our insecurity and fear that were not our truth, or took away our power.  This is the moment, after 5 Pluto-Eris squares, that we have entered the spaces of inner alchemy and now stand joyfully in our personal authority.  

An Aries Full Moon is a call to action.  Fueled by inner alchemy, we will likely face real life monsters or giants as the heavens square off.  But we are entering the moment where we now know what to do.  Within our inner screaming and rage, we have cultivated a sense of peace and stillness rooted in self-knowing. The alchemical child is ready to be born out into the world. Our true Nature is what is called for now.  And Eris will stand for nothing less.

This is the time that we are meant to be plunging forward to create ourselves as a society insisting that we are the world.  Jupiter stationing direct in the sign of the water-bearer calls us into our highest and most lofty dreams that structures and authorities in the world have said we dare not try.  Dream that dream dear one.  Dream it with your brothers and sisters, grandparents and children.  With the Moon and the stars and the trees and moss all cheering you on.  Dream it together and know- we make the world, not the structures that govern.  Now, where are you being called into participation?

Venus is in Sagittarius moving towards her maximum elongation on the 29th of October.  She is wild, free and ready to abandon old chains that she used to cling to for security.  True security for her is freedom, inner freedom to enter her state of feminine flow.  The ability to adapt to change at will.  The excitement in embracing each challenge with a sense of adventure along our epic heroic journey.

We are completing a major cycle with the 5th of 5 Pluto-Eris squares.  The gift is knowing how we can break old conditioning to stand in the true power of wisdom.  As the coming months will continue to bring great change, notice how far you have come in your ability to trust in the Divine order and in your capacity to rise and rise again like the Phoenix.  Embrace your freedom to seek and find all that you need within, and express it into the world at will. After all, its rather exciting!

Venus in Sagittarius is akin to Horse medicine.  Horse is the teacher of the power of wisdom.  It is said that no wisdom comes from the abuse of power.  Instead, when we are carried by wisdom, we carry the weight of responsibility to participate in the totality of the journey of this Earth-walk.  To approach others with a higher perspective and carry our wisdom into the world is a great honor and responsibility.  If you have found some illumination, share it. But remember, we do not own the wisdom we have, but are humble carriers of a collective jewel of Earth-walking.  Sharing is the only way to keep it alive.

To balance Sagittarian energy we are called to embrace Turtle medicine.  Turtle is the carrier of deep Mother Earth medicine.  She speaks of grounding.  The Full Moon trines Galactic Center at 27’ Sagittarius where new visions, downloads and inspiration come from.  It can feel like fire in your throat.  Remember the wisdom of Turtle to bury our eggs in the sand until they are ready to hatch into the world.

Aries is a sign of passion and purpose similar to Sagittarius, but more focused on the knowledge of the self and our courage to be it.  You are being called to address core issues that are becoming relevant now and take action to resolve any problems coming to light at this time.  Pluto is squaring the Full Moon and Mars driving us into action.  The warrior is in the sign of Libra where he is masterful at creative solutions and social architecture.  If we need to take space to let our inner fires purify, beautiful.  But this is a time for confronting core issues so that we may find creative solutions that become the architecture of the New earth.

This beautiful Moon is the blossoming of knowing who we are.  There is an old Zen story about a lion cub who was brought up by a flock of sheep.  One day an old lion saw the young lion thinking he was a sheep and took him to a pond where he saw his reflection.  The lion roared out in pride and joy for the learning of who he truly was.   Who told you that you were a sheep?  You are a lioness.  You are a wild Stallion.  You are the wolf that howls at the Moon.  The Mountain Ram atop unreachable peaks.  Aries is calling us forth to cry out our true nature.  To be brave enough to stand apart from the flock.  To look into the mirror and see the true you.

Blessed True-ing,

Zoey Wind

Libra New Moon- The Truth is in the Present-  October 6, 2021 4:05amPT/7:05amET

Libra New Moon- The Truth is in the Present- October 6, 2021 4:05amPT/7:05amET

I stand before you

Naked, raw

All that I am

Exposed

Will you love me?

I cry to the sky

Great Spirit

Hear me and reply!

Keep my hearth fire strong

Inside my chest

To love myself as other

And other as self

And all your creation

In the beauty way

Great emanations unfolding

Upon the altar of the soul

Beyond all reason

And all control

This lunation asks of us to take a deep rest.  Though counterintuitive for a New Moon with Mars right beside it, there is still a New Moon asking us to slip tenderly into something soft and use the vigor of Mars to traverse our inner terrain.  The Sabian symbol for the 13th degree of Libra is “In the heat of the noon hour, man takes a siesta.”  It speaks to yielding to the pull of internal regenerative forces to be tended to so that we can continue to show up in intense social times.  And certainly we can all relate to this sentiment at the current moment.

The image of Libra is that of Justice, the blindfolded woman holding the scales of time in one hand and a sword in the other. The sword is to cut away that which is false. The blindfold reveals that truth is within.   She seeks truth within so that judgement is not of the outer appearance of what stands before her, but from a knowing that only comes from the heart. There is a deep stirring in the heavens for inner movement right now.  Libra’s cardinal nature wants to initiate change, just as this sign initiates us into the new season of Fall every year, this new lunar cycle beginning in Libra asks that our changes be internal.  

The Full Moon in Aries in two weeks will bring us out of our inner draft board to break new ground on being the highest and best version of ourselves possible.  Use this pause to design your inner terrain to be the most beautiful, balanced and intelligent design for the function of continuing to build relationships that light up your life.  

In these times it is more important than ever to remember that forces or beliefs that seek to divide are antithetical to the human needs for culture, togetherness and connection.  We can navigate these currents skillfully with the Libran light of love in our hearts.  There is a way to be both embracing of forgiveness and compromise for the sake of our higher values as well as the knowing of ourselves so true that we know when we need to hold strong to what we need for ourselves. The way you do so will be unique to you, and reveal the leader within.

Mars in Libra is said to be a bit out of place by the ancients because Libra is Venus’s sign seeking peace and beauty, while Mars is supposed to be our more brute force and ambitious energy.  But in this modern time of merging opposites and embracing the non-binary Mars in Libra may be exactly what we need.  

Mars will conjoin the Sun in Libra on October 7th in the sign of Libra, marking for some astrologers the beginning of a new 2 year cycle for the Divine Masculine within all beings.  Others use the retrograde cazimi as the start point, but both are significant as opposite points on the wheel.  May we sow our seeds with clear intention as we learn to cultivate our will, drive and seeking along the path in alignment with our highest values of beauty, justice and intelligent design.

Everyone will never agree on everything.  But Libra asks that we listen.  That we consider the other’s point of view by hearing their story.  Things may feel fiery and heated as we talk about that which we hold great passion for.  That’s the moment to know if we need to rest and digest the social mores of the day as the Sabian symbol suggests.  

Chiron opposes this New Moon from Aries illuminating that it is through the tending of our own inner woundedness that we may show up for others in spite of ourselves.  It is not either or. It is yes and.  Yes, I am angry and tired and feel strongly about this, and I understand that you feel the same about your perspective.  We each cultivate our values in life according to the unique life experiences we have had.  Each perspective is valid.  

People may be coming either from a healthy, integrated space, or a space of woundedness and ego at this time, and most likely a mix of both.  The stars are currently offering us a chance to open our hearts and discover where we are at in this present moment.  

Do we let our anger at injustice leak onto others around us?  The complexity of injustice in the world is truly overwhelming.  We cannot seem to purchase, eat, move or decide anything without participating in modern colonization and disrespect of the Earth and all living things.  Yet, we must eat, we must shower, we must live, we must breathe; somehow, we must live with a sense of peace in our hearts.

Chiron in Aries is about the wound of our personal freedom.  Give yourself to tend to yours.  Our sovereignty to discover for ourselves who we are, our independence, our individuality, our identity is crucial to human development.  The soul’s vision quest can only be done alone, witnessed by Creator.  We can have support, but the truth of our hearts is ours alone to know. May you seek with the light of adventure in your eyes.

If you feel exhausted from the state of the world, and understandably so, give yourself time to rest and restore during this New Moon.  It’s ok to opt out of the meeting, conversation or debate.  It’s ok to elevate perspective beyond the literal, and into the metaphysical, philosophical mind of the Creator, where logic and reason are only half of the equation, and faith is the fulcrum upon which it all stands.

At times we must sit back and trust in a higher design beyond our human understanding.  At other times we must stand up and play our role in that creation more actively.  The space of peace from which this inner knowing arises only comes when we have done deep inner work to know ourselves and our values.  If we value love and togetherness like the Libran frequencies emanate, then this Venus in Scorpio may help us to move beyond the surface differences and into the deeper crevices of the heart of the issue at hand.

Usually, the thing we are talking about is not actually what we are talking about.  It is a symptom, a by-product of a pure frequency that is seeking higher expression into this material realm.  Use the power of Venus as Shaman to look beyond the surface of what’s going on to understand humans in a more primal and spiritual way.  How one person expresses a value may be totally different from how another person expresses it.  This can be confounding to the mind, but to the heart it can make sense.

Mercury just stationed retrograde, Pluto is stationing direct within one day with Saturn to follow next week and Mercury and Mars will run into each other in the Heart of the Sun just following this New Moon.  There is a lot of pivoting energy alive as the mind and masculine unite in the light of the Sun in the house of the Goddess.  This moment in time affords us space to do some finishing touches in our inner integration of the past year as we move into the final quarter of 2021.

Mercury and Mars meeting together in the sun on October 7th is powerful for facing fears with fierce intelligence that flows like grace.  For observing power dynamics from the back seat.  For reserving judgements based on surface opinions or words.  For getting deep into the heart of truly knowing another person.  For anchoring relationships within our highest ideals, with a gentle understanding of the woundedness within all beings.  We are all doing the best we can, and from love and feeling seen and supported by our communities we can find the courage to make the changes that make our lives and the world a more beautiful place to be in.

The influence of Uranus in Taurus is amplifying for the rest of the year.  We will all be pushed to break-through the confines of comfort and security into a higher understanding and awakening around our embodiment and what it really means to be human.  The more comfortable with change we can get, the more quickly Uranus rewards us with this higher awakening.  

Imagine there is so much more to know that we can ever know.  And yet, everything we could ever know is right inside.  May the reaches of this lunar energy offer your heart a space to rest and plant new seeds in how you wish to show up in relationships of all kinds.  Where do we need to know ourselves and our boundaries better, and where do we need to compromise for the sake of our higher values?  The right answer may not be logical, but it will bring peace of heart, body and mind.

Blessed Balancing,

Zoey Wind

Eternity comes

Beneath the light of the Primordial Moon on the eves of Autumn the cultivation of your spiritual synthesis is calling.  If you’re drawn to something, follow.  If you know without knowing, listen.  If you sense something, pay attention. And always- question.  Seek to see behind the thing.  Seek to know the essence in its ever changing form. Know that the seeking is the destination.  

Psycho-spiritual synthesis is called for as we navigate the waves of collective undoings and rebirth.  All of the outer planets are retrograde until October when they begin to turn direct, one by one until January.  The outer planets represent great cycles of humanity, civilization and evolution.  When they are retrograde it is the time for internally integrating the greater cycles of life within our own being.  If you have major alignments to the outer planets in your chart, then this is extra personal for you.

Sometimes we feel our lives are life metaphors for the greater reality outside of us.  Sometimes we feel we are on our own journey.  But the reality is, that each individual life, our choices, our joys, our losses, our mistakes, our successes and triumphs make up the story that will become Ourstory.  This Full Moon is about our psychological and spiritual synthesis of ourselves in context of the greater whole.

Pisces calls us into the nether-realms.  Into places undefinable, but not unknowable.  It can be spaces of overwhelm, escape, fantasy or delusion.  It is also where we cultivate faith in a supreme understanding of the Universe.  For the kind of understanding that becomes overstanding, requires us to integrate the totality of existence.

Each thing has a place in the greater whole.  There are ancient texts from cultures the world over detailing the cosmology of existence.  We do not have to go it alone, blind or without help. Whether that help comes from teachers and books, the compassion of a friend or a direct channel to our ancestors, guides and Source itself.  The important thing is that we seek, we see, we know and integrate.  

This chart features some powerful aspects, all illuminated by the Moon conjunct Neptune, Opposite Mars.  Jupiter is being trined by Mercury, soon to station retrograde on the 26th.  Venus squared Saturn and Sun trined Pluto days before the Full Moon .  With all of the outer planets retrograde this Full Moon may illuminate where your inner garden needs tending.  What needs to be pruned?  What beds are ready to be put to rest for a few seasons?  How does the compost smell?  

The Spiritual gardening of the Soul is a path to Self-Cultivation.  Nature lives within and without  us.  Nature contains all of the codes and information needed for life.  She contains within her the entire pharmacy, genetic fluorescence, vital life force and meaning that we may ever need.  Nature, in Esoteric texts is synonymous with God/Spirit/The Eternal.  No one can tell you your truth in the new Quantum Age, but the Full Moon may just reveal some of it to you in your dreams, dance or song.

Pisces seeks totality of understanding.  Inherent in this understanding is its dissolution.  But from it we glean truths.  For it is when all else falls away, that we may see what truly is.  

Truths are rarely complicated, though we may have to traverse overwhelm to reach them.  They rarely confound or lack sense, though the journey may at times.  Instead, truths resound within our very bones the bell of truth.  They bring a settling, a comfort.  How you feel truth may be unique to you.  In the chart Jupiter, Neptune, the ninth and twelfth houses are a great start.  Or just let this sweet moonlight show you how.  

This Full Moon is sextile to Pluto in Capricorn.  Delusions of where our power truly comes from are mystified and demystified.  Security and control lead humans to make many of our decisions, and practically so, but this Moon asks that we expand beyond what our conception of security has been in the past.  To examine what we lose through relegating our freedom to larger institutions and governments.  To question if what we think brings security, actually brings long term sustainability. To question the very nature of our beliefs.  

Total security and maintaining something in a constant state is not possible according to the fundamental laws of the Universe.  The second law of thermodynamics is about entropy, but negentropy is the natural generative order that is equally as present.  Looking to our inner and outer Cosmos helps us to form a cosmology- just as all humans have done throughout time.  

We are in a  great transition where it is time to question our modern cosmology, to seek the truths latent in ancient teachings in order to update and integrate them for our modern era.  This is the work of Pisces- to seek an understanding and integration of natural laws into our consciousness as a scaffolding for regenerative systems of understanding that honor truths inherent in the structure of space time.  From this space, we can create in harmony with all of Nature- ourselves included.

Compassion is the gift of the Piscean waters.  This lunation may help you see through any anger, rage or judgement that you have been holding onto.  It may bring tears.  Welcome them as cleansing waters.  Open your heart to a compassionate understanding of where others are coming from.  

In a time of great divisiveness, we can draw on the cosmic perspective of the fishes to remind us that we are all like children, wounded and doing the best we can.  It is here to remind us that togetherness and relationships are sacred and integral to humanness.  See where you can open your heart to forgiveness and understanding of those you may disagree with on a philosophical level, and seek to see where you are the same.  Pisces knows that to share love with others is more important than agreeing with them.

 Saturn is in perfect trine with Black Moon Lilith- the scorned feminine, mother earth, feminine principle that lives within each and every one of us.  The voice of the sacredness of embodiment is asking to be heard.  Saturn wants us to  listen with our bones.  Taste it with our mouths.  Sink our teeth into something meaty and substantial.  New information is indicated, and secrets may be revealed this week that illuminate where we have given our power away, possibly without even realizing.  The call to action is for re-assessment from within during the next three weeks of Mercury retrograde, and establishing our new inner authority.

We are invited to integrate our inner synthesis with our daily rituals, practices and choices.  Meditation and reflection are the places we come to higher realizations.  Be it on the trail, over the stove, in the garden, on the dance floor.  Entering states of flow where we receive inspiration are highly auspicious under a Pisces Full Moon.  It is said that flow is the space between discipline and surrender.  May you enter freely.

Blessings and Flow,

Zoey Wind

Virgo New Moon- Blind But Not Visionless

Virgo New Moon- Blind But Not Visionless

New Moon is exact on Monday September 6, 2021 5:52pm PT/8:52pm ET

In the halls of Amenti there stands a flame.  The flame that sparked all of Creation.  Lit by innocence. Fueled by wisdom. Maintained by devotion.  So long this flame has been guarded, that many have forgotten that it burns for them.  Thus they now seek to destroy it.  Believing that it represents something outside of them.  Something separate.  When in fact, it was lit by the divinity of each being.  

This flame was maintained by members of a secret order in ancient times so that if anyone’s hearth flame should burn out, there would always be the light of love standing to relight it once again.  There is a flame of love being maintained still.  If we have lost our own, those who are dedicated to holding it in their hearts will help light yours again.  If you are guarding your own, don’t forget why it is there my love.

This Virgo New Moon is a significant one as we shift out of the Age of Pisces.  Being the opposite sign of the fishes, Virgo is the other half of the story of the last 2,500 years.  As such, it is imperative that we reach a state of completion and integration with those lessons as we transition into the Age of Aquarius (and its other half Leo).  

Virgo-Pisces is the axis of the physical and the Metaphysical.  It is the duality of Spirit and Matter.  It is the synthesis of subjective and objective reality.  The mundane and synchronicities of the mystical.  The awakening of the knowing of the higher intelligence of life and how to incorporate that into everyday existence.  It is the development of wise discernment within the context of the greater intelligence of the Universe.

Richard Tarnas writes in his monumental work Cosmos and Psyche in regards to synchronicity and its implications,

“A capacity for acute yet balanced discernment has to be forged, founded not only on alertness to meaningful patterns but also on a disciplined mindfulness of the larger whole within which the individual seeks orientation.” (p.55)

Within the new Quantum Reality emerging now we have an entirely new world-view birthing.  In the Quantum paradigm, the ultimate expression of the Piscean Age is awakening us to the truth that there is no truth.  There is no fact.  Everything is relative.  All is created by consciousness.  And yet, the individual is not the ultimate power.  There is a larger universe at play, and we must continuously re-orient ourselves to it from within this new reality to stay afloat.

In the early days of crisp fall breezes, ripening apples and storms in the distance we are called to reorient our perspectives.  Virgo is a master of analysis, so let her aid you wherever you are in your process.  What does a truly balanced and fair world look like?  How do we cultivate balanced and acute discernment within the context of this vast whole we are a part of?  How do we find answers as we bridge into Quantum reality where reality is in the eye of the beholder and yet we are not the only ones in it?  We have some big lessons to integrate at this time. They will take time, and that is ok.

Luckily this Virgo New Moon holds special power for the intentions we seed into the fertile void.  This lunation sparks our drive to penetrate into the deeper crevices of our psyche.  It is time to turn inward for answers.  To focus on how we can heal ourselves to heal the world.  To find the root of any sickness within us.  To purify the source from which our desire to serve comes.  To tend the sacred fire within.

What fire do you keep lit in your heart no matter how the wind blows?  How deeply can we honor the sacredness of this life in dedication to the sacredness of all life?  Virgo knows the power of dedication, she knows the ways of healing, she transmits the templates of devotion as the highest expression of honor.  She is asked in this lunation to remember that our personal success is not separate from the whole.

The priestess does this through honoring the wisdom of the body.  If we feel overwhelmed, we must step back and reassess.  Sometimes the greatest work is invisible to others.  Sometimes to serve others, we must first care for ourselves.  Take some time to recommit yourself to the practices that keep you balanced, centered and clear.  We can both be devoted and non-attached.  Act from intention and still be open to new perspectives.  

This New Moon chart features the ruler, Mercury in Libra along with Venus.  Relationships and balance are the work of the present.  Healthy relationship requires some sacrifice and compromise, but should not disempower us completely.   It is easy to people-please or jump into group-think to keep the peace, to agree with others to avoid conflict. But if we do this too long, what is the cost?  

Years of people-pleasing can leave a person weak and flaccid, unable to remember who they were in the first place.  Many of us have learned to remember ourselves as sacred, but this doesn’t make our jobs any easier.  Let this lunation reveal to you how to cultivate healthy boundaries, to communicate them from a space of love.  To hold the space you need for  healing in your body and mind with compassion for the collective consciousness which we are all affected by.

Venus trine Jupiter in Aquarius says- when we choose to honor our own perspective as valid we must relegate to the fact that we will sometimes go against the grain.  You were not born to conform.  Our personal truth will not always please those around us.  It will not get us the “approval” of others that we may be addicted to, or desiring.  It may make others uncomfortable.  But it will shift us away from shoving down our personal truth, needs, rights and voice just to keep the peace.  It will bring us into our personal liberation, which is the prerequisite for peace.

True power empowers others.  Self-respect is always respectful of others.  The heart of peace creates peace.  Only love begets love.

The Libran image is a blindfolded woman holding the scales of balance in one hand and the sword of justice in the other. She is fighting for justice through turning inward for her truth and liberation so that it may serve as the great balance she seeks.  The sword cuts away delusion.  The balance sought in Libra is attainable through our dedication in Virgo to the cultivation of mindfulness and self refinement which serves the collective.  The Libran dedication to peaceful resolution is what brings justice.  

The scales are not about a perfect balance that lasts and lasts.  It is about the pendulum swing, the gentle breeze that flows to and fro, the natural tides of life, ideals and truth.  And for a moment in the shifting winds, there is a still point.  The woman in the blindfold is in that place of inner stillness.  This is the space that  we  find the clarity that we seek.

 Justice may not be getting what we deserve, but finding the best solution for the moment, with awareness that truth is subjective.  At other times it is knowing what it will not compromise in its aim for justice.  This is a moment in time to make sure we have deeply analyzed, purified and integrated the root of our values and ideals.  The more real we are with our personal process, the more we can serve others on their road to personal truth and freedom.

To attain Virgo attainment of purity, we must cleanse through the waters of Pisces our delusions and fantasies that keep us from that purity of consciousness.  We must know that in any effort to perfect something, chaos is always around the corner.  It is not about reaching a static state of perfection, but seeing the perfection in the process.  Of rejoicing in the alignment of how we live our daily lives with the greater cosmic rhythms, and the willingness to surrender, even in action.

Balance does not happen overnight.  Neither does the great shifting of the ages we are within.  May we be gentle and kind as we navigate the winds of change.  May we hold to the love of the Virgo-Libra energies in the skies right now asking us to remain dedicated to peace and service to one another and the Earth as we work towards a more beautiful world our hearts know is possible.

Blessings and Balance,

Zoey Wind

This Virgo New Moon is a significant one as we shift out of the Age of Pisces.  Being the opposite sign of the fishes, Virgo is the other half of the story of the last 2,500 years.  As such, it is imperative that we reach a state of completion and integration with those lessons as we transition into the Age of Aquarius (and its other half Leo).  

Virgo-Pisces is the axis of the physical and the Metaphysical.  It is the duality of Spirit and Matter.  It is the synthesis of subjective and objective reality.  The mundane and synchronicities of the mystical.  The awakening of the knowing of the higher intelligence of life and how to incorporate that into everyday existence.  It is the development of wise discernment within the context of the greater intelligence of the Universe.

Richard Tarnas writes in his monumental work Cosmos and Psyche in regards to synchronicity and its implications,

“A capacity for acute yet balanced discernment has to be forged, founded not only on alertness to meaningful patterns but also on a disciplined mindfulness of the larger whole within which the individual seeks orientation.” (p.55)

Within the new Quantum Reality emerging now we have an entirely new world-view birthing.  In the Quantum paradigm, the ultimate expression of the Piscean Age is awakening us to the truth that there is no truth.  There is no fact.  Everything is relative.  All is created by consciousness.  And yet, the individual is not the ultimate power.  There is a larger universe at play, and we must continuously re-orient ourselves to it from within this new reality to stay afloat.

In the early days of crisp fall breezes, ripening apples and storms in the distance we are called to reorient our perspectives.  Virgo is a master of analysis, so let her aid you wherever you are in your process.  What does a truly balanced and fair world look like?  How do we cultivate balanced and acute discernment within the context of this vast whole we are a part of?  How do we find answers as we bridge into Quantum reality where reality is in the eye of the beholder and yet we are not the only ones in it?  We have some big lessons to integrate at this time. They will take time, and that is ok.

Luckily this Virgo New Moon holds special power for the intentions we seed into the fertile void.  This lunation sparks our drive to penetrate into the deeper crevices of our psyche.  It is time to turn inward for answers.  To focus on how we can heal ourselves to heal the world.  To find the root of any sickness within us.  To purify the source from which our desire to serve comes.  To tend the sacred fire within.

What fire do you keep lit in your heart no matter how the wind blows?  How deeply can we honor the sacredness of this life in dedication to the sacredness of all life?  Virgo knows the power of dedication, she knows the ways of healing, she transmits the templates of devotion as the highest expression of honor.  She is asked in this lunation to remember that our personal success is not separate from the whole.

The priestess does this through honoring the wisdom of the body.  If we feel overwhelmed, we must step back and reassess.  Sometimes the greatest work is invisible to others.  Sometimes to serve others, we must first care for ourselves.  Take some time to recommit yourself to the practices that keep you balanced, centered and clear.  We can both be devoted and non-attached.  Act from intention and still be open to new perspectives.  

This New Moon chart features the ruler, Mercury in Libra along with Venus.  Relationships and balance are the work of the present.  Healthy relationship requires some sacrifice and compromise, but should not disempower us completely.   It is easy to people-please or jump into group-think to keep the peace, to agree with others to avoid conflict. But if we do this too long, what is the cost?  

Years of people-pleasing can leave a person weak and flaccid, unable to remember who they were in the first place.  Many of us have learned to remember ourselves as sacred, but this doesn’t make our jobs any easier.  Let this lunation reveal to you how to cultivate healthy boundaries, to communicate them from a space of love.  To hold the space you need for  healing in your body and mind with compassion for the collective consciousness which we are all affected by.

Venus trine Jupiter in Aquarius says- when we choose to honor our own perspective as valid we must relegate to the fact that we will sometimes go against the grain.  You were not born to conform.  Our personal truth will not always please those around us.  It will not get us the “approval” of others that we may be addicted to, or desiring.  It may make others uncomfortable.  But it will shift us away from shoving down our personal truth, needs, rights and voice just to keep the peace.  It will bring us into our personal liberation, which is the prerequisite for peace.

True power empowers others.  Self-respect is always respectful of others.  The heart of peace creates peace.  Only love begets love.

The Libran image is a blindfolded woman holding the scales of balance in one hand and the sword of justice in the other. She is fighting for justice through turning inward for her truth and liberation so that it may serve as the great balance she seeks.  The sword cuts away delusion.  The balance sought in Libra is attainable through our dedication in Virgo to the cultivation of mindfulness and self refinement which serves the collective.  The Libran dedication to peaceful resolution is what brings justice.  

The scales are not about a perfect balance that lasts and lasts.  It is about the pendulum swing, the gentle breeze that flows to and fro, the natural tides of life, ideals and truth.  And for a moment in the shifting winds, there is a still point.  The woman in the blindfold is in that place of inner stillness.  This is the space that  we  find the clarity that we seek.

 Justice may not be getting what we deserve, but finding the best solution for the moment, with awareness that truth is subjective.  At other times it is knowing what it will not compromise in its aim for justice.  This is a moment in time to make sure we have deeply analyzed, purified and integrated the root of our values and ideals.  The more real we are with our personal process, the more we can serve others on their road to personal truth and freedom.

To attain Virgo attainment of purity, we must cleanse through the waters of Pisces our delusions and fantasies that keep us from that purity of consciousness.  We must know that in any effort to perfect something, chaos is always around the corner.  It is not about reaching a static state of perfection, but seeing the perfection in the process.  Of rejoicing in the alignment of how we live our daily lives with the greater cosmic rhythms, and the willingness to surrender, even in action.

Balance does not happen overnight.  Neither does the great shifting of the ages we are within.  May we be gentle and kind as we navigate the winds of change.  May we hold to the love of the Virgo-Libra energies in the skies right now asking us to remain dedicated to peace and service to one another and the Earth as we work towards a more beautiful world our hearts know is possible.

Blessings and Balance,

Lion’s Gate Portal and the Leo New Moon Sunday, 8.8.21 at 6:50amPT/8:50amCT

Lion’s Gate Portal and the Leo New Moon Sunday, 8.8.21 at 6:50amPT/8:50amCT

Lions Gate Portal = Sirius’s Heliacal rise from the Sun approx: 8.10-8.11.2021 for North America

The Leo New Moon falls on 8.8 this year which has become a New Age phenomenon sweeping the interwebs of human New Age culture.  Every now and then old things re-emerge with fresh names and faces.  As humanity it is our nature to evolve.  Evolution is considered a primary principle of life, and as humans we seek to evolve ideas, philosophies and concepts through the active participation with the archetypal forms of the universe.  

Archetypes are like well worn grooves in the tapestry of creation, the sacred geometric framework of time space that allows us to flow in material form. Our consciousness, according to Quantum theory, has a direct influence on the manifestation of these patterns.  They ebb and flow like the path of a river through sand.  

Like the Nile, the position of the stars moves with celestial seasons above which reflect the seasons below.  Our consciousness is inextricable from reality, and so how we place our attention through intention will determine the flow of energy into matter.  This means that something as old and at the same time new as the Lions Gate Portal is in a unique position within the mind of humanity to cultivate it as we wish at this time.

The Lions Gate portal seems to be determined by the rise of the star Sirius from the perspective of the pyramids at Giza along with the energy of the number 8 doubled- which is the symbol for infinity and abundance.  We can see how the the parallels continue to unfold as dive deeper into the symbolism contained within this moment in time.

Further, it was pointed out to me by a friend and astrologer that 8.8 is also the date of Regulus’s heliacal set into the Sun- a potentially more significant fact considering Regulus is the heart of the Lion constellation.  This means that this date signals the set of the Regulus- the star associated with the king, and the rise of Sirius-Isis, the star of the Goddess. Perhaps this portal is opening to allow the shadows of the kings of old to return to the underworld to be transformed, while the transformed Goddess who has spent millennia underground is being reborn into collective consciousness.  

The star Regulus also progressed out of the sign of Leo and into the sign of Virgo in 2011- signaling that the star of kings had entered the sign of the Priestess. This is just some of the symbolism pointing to this time and portal as aligned to the re-awakening of the Divine Feminine again into human consciousness, lets look at some more.

Sirius held special significance in ancient Egypt and its rise marked the New Year in the Egyptian calendar, signaling the flooding of the Nile was nigh soon to bring the rich and fertile silt deposits graces of the living river system.  Sirius was associated with Isis- the All Mother, Queen of Heaven and consort of Osiris whom the Egyptians identified the constellation Orion with. 

The name Sirius comes from the Greek Seirios for scorching or sparkling.  In ancient Egypt Sirius was personified as the Goddess Sopdet or Isis who represented fertility, healing, the Divine Mother and guided the souls of Pharaohs to the Afterlife back to the constellation Orion where they were said to come from.  

Sirius’ heliacal rise from the Sun is after the Sun passes close enough to the star for 70 days making it “invisible ” or indiscernible next to the light of the Sun.  So the star’s rise from the Sun is actually the Sun passing far enough past it that it becomes visible again just before dawn in early August.  The exact date depends on your latitude from Earth, but it is happening approximately on August 8 in our day and age at the pyramids of Giza.  

Sirius seems to have been closely studied and even worshiped in cultures the world over.  There are several pyramids in Egypt that are aligned to the stars rising.  In Bernadette Brady’s book of Fixed stars she sites the qualities of Sirius as those of Jupiter primarily, and also Mars.  Jupiter brings abundance, joy, wealth, prosperity and success.  Mars brings vigor, passion, drive and heat.  Together we have a powerful star that is said to bring such great success and fame, that it can literally burn the person standing in the lime- light.

But I think that there is a deeper significance to the star Sirius- one that is found is the combination of all of these ideas and modern astronomy.  There is a scientific theory that we are in a binary star system with Sirius A (or rather a trinary system as Sirius A already had a companion not visible to the eye, SiriusB).  Those who channel in the Sirian beings say that they are an advanced race whose star is linked to our star, and therefore we are inextricably linked in a dance of coevolution.  

Sirius is called the “spiritual sun” or the “sun behind the sun” in different cultures around the world.  The Dogon tribe in Africa, living a seemingly simple indigenous life to this day, have known about Sirius B for thousands of years, and say that they come from there.  The ancient Pharaohs in Egypt were said to be descendants of beings from the Sirius and/or Orion systems.  The symbol of the King is deeply connected to the symbol of the Sun, our star, and of divinity.

Perhaps the Lions Gate portal and the power it is holding in our consciousness right now represents our awakening to our own divinity and the Divine Feminine again.  For we cannot realize our complete power until we allow the feminine to fully re-emerge from the shadows again.  The symbolism of Isis, the Great Mother, the feminine as guide for the soul, the richness of the loving energy and fierce pride of the Lioness is present with us at any moment we choose to awaken to it.

Leo is about igniting the creative potential within and shining your hearts light bright into the world.  Aligned to the Lions Gate portal which is associated with the Goddess Isis this New Moon is charged with her energy.  She is the celestial mother, the guide of the pharaohs in the afterlife, the symbol of fertility, grace, abundance and passion for herself and her creations.

This Moon asks that we step up to the offer for radical self-assessment in order to ascend to the highest timeline of yourself and life possible.  This portal connects us to the star Sirius, the “Sun behind the Sun” to the ancients.  If the Sun is guardian of the sign of Leo and represents the Heart, then Sirius is the Heart of Hearts, pointing us to the higher evolution of our hearts.  This is so profoundly resonant with the energy of the Divine Mother- the Heart that beat your heart before yours could beat itself.

Can we engage with the courage in spite of collective and personal ideals to go within our heart of hearts and meet every person as an individual worthy of total love and respect.  Can we meet ourselves that way?  

As the Moon joins the Sun it illuminates the darkness around the greater tensions within society as they exist in the heart of each individual at this time.  Liberation begins in the body, mind, soul and heart of every individual.  If we want to see a freer world with less suffering, we must begin by freeing ourselves from the internal chains that bond.  

Mercury is with the New Moon serving as psychopomp for the radical awakening of our heart’s inner authority into the mind- asking that we not just paint by numbers, but by the creative, expressive, emotive center of our beings!

The practice is heart truth cultivation.  Each new day offers myriad opportunities for relating with our heart truth.  Notice how each interaction you have with people, places and institutions makes you feel.  Uranus in T-square with this New Moon opposite Saturn calls for the radical awakening of our senses!  Let your body and heart be your guide!  When we move alongside what makes us feel bright, seen and honored the potentials for our life expand infinitely.

The Sabian symbol for 17’ Leo where the Sun and Moon kiss is “a volunteer church choir singing.”  It speaks to the celebration of togetherness and the power of how we sing our collective song together.  It is about the stability of singing with one voice.  The New Moon occurring here asks that we pause and look inward before jumping on the bandwagon of popularity.  It is a greater thing to stand true to yourself, in integrity and honoring your heart truth than to gain popularity for the sake of feeling good right now.  Le asks we do so brightly, bravely and with pure, unconditional love.

Uranus is squaring the New Moon at 15’ Taurus, whose symbol is, “a man in a silken hat braves a storm.”  It speaks to the courage of the individual to face any challenge with courage and surmount all that we may face.  It also speaks to the fact that in spite of all the silk hats we may have, no one is exempt from crisis, loss or hardship.  Though we may have abundant family, community and support in our lives during hard times, we will all inevitably have to face some great challenges alone, and these are the moments that we learn of our true strength.

These two symbols squaring off feels like the tension between our desires to feel united as one human race in the face of the challenges that may be present at this time, yet it is in some way utterly dependent on each individual’s ability to summon their own strength and fortitude from within.  In order to show up for others strong, we must already know something of our own strength.

Strength can only be fully realized in the face of adversity.  Just like courage can only exist when there is fear.  No matter what challenges arise, we will be given nothing we cannot handle.  And in each moment of fear, there is an opportunity for courage.  Each moment of challenge is an opportunity for strength.  Each human being, an opportunity for love.

Saturn is at the 10th degree of Aquarius opposing this New Moon, whose symbol is “a man who had for a time become the embodiment of a popular ideal is made to realize that as a person he is not this ideal”.  It speaks to the power of the practice of self-reevaluation when we may be confusing something with the archetype it represents to us. 

Everyone is confronted with this realization in their life.  Realizing a parent isn’t perfect, that the person we fell madly in love with is actually just a projection of an ideal that we called in through our longing for it, or that the love someone had for us was based on a projection of some ideal they were calling in.  We all must come at some point in our lives to the realization that any person, place or institution we have perceived through archetypal reality is still just a person, place or thing.  A living breathing human with their own set of humanity.  Reality is at some level, just reality.  

And yet it is so much more.  With Mercury as Guardian of this New Moon we are invited to play with our perspective.  Not just to move it around for the sake of it, but through conscious intention in order to arise into our power as creators of our own lives.  Through the lion’s Gate portal we are asked to awaken to the truth of 5D reality- that everything is both utterly real and unreal.  And that consciousness and heart are our greatest tools in the Age of Aquarius.

If you have a moment to journal, I invite you to look at the things in your life that you most idealize and notice which archetypal energy it represents to you.  There are seemingly infinite systems of archetypal frameworks of reality to play with from Astrology to Psychology to Kabbalah.  Or perhaps you have noticed some of your own.  

Then see if you can wash clean the projections of your own mind and concept of reality for a moment, and seek to see that person or thing for exactly what it is.  Perhaps the Shaman is just as flawed and in need of healing as you, the educated doctor is just guessing in the dark, a parent is just a wounded child that grew up.  No matter what ideal we may embody to others, we are utterly all the same- all fallible, all wound-able and all worthy of unconditional love and healing.

This symbolism is so potent for Leo-Aquarius energies- where we can get caught up in the projection or the desires of others or popular opinion, and forget to think for or just be ourselves. Saturn asks us to use our critical faculties for the advancement of stability and endurance for all of life on Earth.  Retrograde and opposite this new moon he is asking us not to shirk the responsibility we each have for the conscious cultivation of our mind, perspective, ideals, beliefs and how we project them into the world.  

May you open to the highest timelines and frequencies available for you and all the Universe in this powerful Portal.  Release the olds concepts of self and need to please others for approval wherever they may be showing up for you right now.  And call upon the beauty of the light of Sirius to be your guidess towards living from your truth, your joy and your heart of hearts.

Blessed Activation,

Aquarius Full Moon – Friday July 23, 2021 7:37pm PT/ 9:37pm CT                       Answering The Call

Aquarius Full Moon – Friday July 23, 2021 7:37pm PT/ 9:37pm CT Answering The Call

How do we express our freedom in a way that keeps all beings free?  In a way that honors the many truths, and the truth of oneness?  If a heart is open and kind can it manifest unkindness?  How can we be light and playful in our crafting of reality? A reality that is simultaneously individual, collective and one?  And what are the patterns through which all these energies flow?  Perhaps if we study them, integrate with them and dance with the lines we can more easily sway them to and fro, like a sweet lover’s hips in a gentle breeze.  She is, after all, a beautiful lover.

This moon illuminates how we are crafting our lives and relationships.  Are we making them beautiful?  Do we hold vision true?  For time is but an illusion and if so then let’s paint it pleasing.  We can hold that which we value as sacred and set it free unto its path of transformation.  We can love and be free.  If you can see it, it is possible.

Aquarius is that crazy idea you never thought would catch on, then the next thing you know it’s everywhere.  It’s the strange, abnormal and seemingly  impossible that lights the imaginations of children dreaming a future with spaceships and time-travel.  It is the vision of someone on the precipice of adulthood believing they can change the world.  It is the reaching for the stars in remembrance of them as home once again, our forgotten past and our ancient future.

Uranus as ruler of Aquarius teaches us how not to just dabble in our dreams, but to dive head first into the stars.  What great and profound light is seeking to shine through you?  What are your biggest dreams?  Ride the waves of inspiration tonight and bask in the unique essence of an Aquarian full moon.  You just might find magic there.

Saturn is trining the North Node in Gemini and sextile the South Node Sag to help crystallize connections and friendships that support the manifestation of our dreams.  It may also help to clear any barriers or foster strong foundations towards a collective goal we have with others.  Goals that support equality, the future and those things that make us feel like we are aligned with our unique soul family and tribe are strongly supported.

Aquarius is about the part of our soul that is seeking to allow the less normal.  To embrace revolution.  To shine our uniqueness as a beacon of evolutionary encouragement to the world and receive others’.  Conjunct Saturn retrograde, this is a moment of embracing our personal integrity in how we wish to be active participants in society and the future, honoring our individuality and our collective destiny.  The year’s major stand-off between Saturn and Uranus activates the potential for us to make great bounds in our consciousness, bypassing the usual barriers.  Sometimes, the quickest way around something is not always the most apparent.  

As we move towards a crystallization of new ways of relating to the world, the power of ancient traditions, indigenous wisdom, stories and art forms are becoming examples once again of effective, wise and potent medicine.  We are called to become radically more human, embodied and present as we progress.  What was old is born again anew, and the ashes of what was burned will fertilize the young seeds and ancient trees of our collective future. 

What consciousness is asking to be planted in your life?  What ancient teachings beckon your devotion?  What dreams and quests does your soul long for?  Remembrance is in the heart, and all wisdom can be accessed there.

Surrender to the creative intelligence of the Universe within and without you.  Seek balance and honor the sacred relationships that are closest to your heart.  Allow these things to give you courage to step into the higher vision you are receiving now.  Venus, newly in Virgo is reborn into her sacred work and practice.  Let her be your guide in the evening skies if you feel you’ve lost your way.

You were not put here to play small, hiding your light from those not yet ready to witness it.  You were brought here to change the world.  To push the edges of complacency, conformity and comfort.  May the Sun’s lion light shining from the Aquarian moon bring courage to the pursuit of your visions that require you to move beyond fear, and step bravely onto the stage of life.

To the Divine Calling in each of us <3

Tides of the Heart- Cancer New Moon- July 7th, 2021 6:19pmPT/8:19pmCT

In the dark of the Moon

I’ll rest

Curl up inside her soft, silken womb

In the blackness 

there is safety and solace 

It’s as if she was made for me

To carry me

To nurture me

In spite of all my own undoings

Forever returning to wholeness

Inside her soft dark womb

And when I am ripe and ready

She slips me out

Reborn

Fresh sunlight upon my face again and again

This New Moon in Cancer comes along with powerful alignments between many of our beautiful planets.  A Cancer New Moon is alway like a high or low tide for the entire year, being that Cancer is the Moon’s favorite sign, and therefore where she is most powerful.  The moon is said to correspond with our Soul in Esoteric traditions, and Cancer being her home sign reveals that the soul is imprinted by the emotional experience of the heart.

 The Moon’s ever changing faces reflect the shifting nature of our souls, the phases of life, the seasons. When we observe nature she reveals the nature of experience through the great metaphor of life itself.  Cancer is the sign of the poet, the bard, the beautiful artistic expression of the souls experience into form. 

When we tap this fertile creative sign we can create from deep within our wombs (physical or energetic), the space that we create from deep love.  It is where we sacrifice for our families, loved ones, communities and the Earth.  It is the deep tenderness of our hearts that is touched when a child cries or an animal is hurt.  It is the strength to create life anew again and again.  It is essential to what it means to be human.

In a world that has long shamed emotions, sensitivity, self-care, nurturing and the feminine in general, the Cancer New Moon is a moment where we can reclaim these things for ourselves fiercely again and again.  No matter where we are in our journey, we can choose something different.  Cardinal Cancer is about initiating change so that we can continue to be together, as family, as tribe.  Cancer is after all the crab, the Mamma Bear who will fiercely defend her cubs no matter what and that  self-care is essential for her to do so.

Boundaries are always alive when we speak of Cancer, because the opposite sign of Capricorn is calling out to be integrated.  This is especially true with Venus opposing Saturn just before this NEw Moon, revealing where in relationship we need better boundaries.  Also squaring Uranus, there are powerful awakening opportunities alive right now.  We can transcend previous stuck patterns of relating right now through being willing to work through things that are challenging or cause us to stumble a little with gentleness and sensitivity.  Let’s do this for one another and ourselves.

Venus opposes Saturn and squares Uranus just before this New moon- letting us know where being willing to radically drop into our bodies and present moment can allow us to break old patterns of restriction, control and repression in order to rise more fully into our bold, courageous love.  Self-love that is in tune with personal responsibility and a radical sense of self worth allows us to tap the infinite source within us that is unmoving.  At the center of the shifting soul lies Spirit- steady, unwavering and true.  Infinite, unconditional love source energy heals all, purifies all and is the generative energy source that we can create new life from.  

Truth is beyond the mind.  It is known by the Heart.  Felt by the heart.  The mind then seeks to understand, dissect, analyze and synthesize that truth.  It seeks to prove or disprove it, to give it meaning.  But truth is beyond the mind’s understanding.  If you find some truth- seek not to dissect it and find what is wrong is with.  Simply allow it to be.  Cancer marks one of the divine feminine powers of knowing that is beyond the mind, where the heart beats.

Honor your inner knowing, honor what feels good, right, secure and true.  For nothing lasts forever in this world, but our hearts consciousness just might.

In Love,

Zoey Wind

 “Everything is Dual; everything has poles; everything has its

    pair of opposites; like and unlike are the same; opposites are

    identical in nature, but different in degree; extremes meet;

    all truths are but half-truths; all paradoxes may be

    reconciled.”–The Kybalion.

The mists are finally clearing.  The pre-dawn glow permeates the air with golden orange hues.  The air glowing with the light of the star as it travels around the Earth just before it reaches the horizon.  And as if it was already there, the Sun’s first rays touch your face.  And in that moment all of the darkness of night vanishes like a fantasy.  

The mists are clearing with this Summer Solstice.  The Sun’s full magnificence is experienced in theNorther Hemisphere at this time and the power of the Light to reveal all things is amplified.  The Southern Hemisphere is experiencing their time of greatest darkness.  And yet we are all one planet experiencing the extremes of the polarity of the year which our Earthly walk requires.  In these moments we get to fully feel into both ends of the same spectrum.  In the case of Dark and Light, is their sameness experience?

Neptune square the nodes, the last solar eclipse and Mercury retrograde has had us steeped in the paradox. Now, Venus is in Cancer trine Neptune letting the heart reveal our higher capacity for Love and opening our sense of family and tribe with the whole of creation. 

The Earth needs our prayers and the Sun our celebration.  We all need each other. When we in the northern hemisphere celebrate this time of maximum light, the southern hemisphere honors the darkness and her magic.  We switch roles every sixth months, sharing in cultivating the nature of the swing of this existence and our experience of it. We all need each other. The tree grows both ways.

The fourth Hermetic Principle states that all things manifest in polarity and everything in Creation is but one thing, expressing itself in different degrees of the same thing.  While it may feel frustrating at times, it is this principle of reality which gives us the opportunity to explore perception. 

Mercury stations direct in Gemini on the 22nd calling into action the work we have done around our communication, listening and mind magic over the past 3 and a half weeks. Now we can engage our mental calisthenics of being able to switch our perception around at will

The Saturn-Uranus square that is the defining feature of this year’s star dance has just had its second perfection on June 14th.  They are pointing us towards practical action that supports our individual and collective transformation, re-orientation and revolution. 

What would a personal revolution look like for you right now?  Perhaps you are in the midst of one already, but with Saturn retrograde for this second soiree we are pulled back to our foundations.  Particularly the communities, ideals, connections and resources available there to support our revolution and revelation. Uranus in Taurus calls us towards new systems of money, finance, our bodies and the Earth.

Jupiter stations retrograde the day before the solstice, and begins to recover spiritual lessons, having time to digest and integrate their medicine.  In the sign of Pisces the highest goal is to reach a sense of Oneness with all of the Universe and to tap our hearts of forgiveness for any who have wronged us or are suffering by recognizing that each person’s essence also exists inside of us.

Great Guru Jupiter dips back into Aquarius on July 28th, bringing an expansion to our minds that allows us clarity and a higher perspective of where we have just come from, and where we are going.  Cultivate your intuition and self-honesty, when we do so simultaneously we can come to rely on our intuition more and more as a steady compass through life.  In this New Earth it is less about what we believe, but how we believe.  May we believe with love, faith and joy and a deeper understanding of the sacred, morphic nature of reality.

Most of the outer planets will retrograde over the next three months, allowing the collective to turn perspective inward and reflect, re-orient and heal the inner incarnations of collective struggles and successes.  What is happening outside of us also exists within us in some way.  Which end of the paradox are you in?  What is the sameness between your position and that of the other that reconciles the paradox?  When we realize this, anything is possible. 

Blessed Unity,

Zoey Wind

“Seeing In The Darkness” –                                                                               Gemini New Moon Annular Solar Eclipse                                                                          Thursday June 10th 2021                                                                    2:53AM PT/ 5:53AM ET

“Seeing In The Darkness” – Gemini New Moon Annular Solar Eclipse Thursday June 10th 2021 2:53AM PT/ 5:53AM ET

Stuart Girggs- Deep Dreaming

Duality is the primary division of the One.  According to every concept of spiritual understanding I have found, all contemplations will express themselves according to the Natural Laws which govern this reality, and duality is perhaps only second in these truths to Oneness.  If this is true, then there is no difference between the dark and the light, life and death, the beginning and the end.  Gemini is the archetypal expression of this truth, and its ruler Mercury is our guide in the powerful Solar Eclipse on Thursday.

Beginning at the end can be a path less travelled, but if we begin, without holding the vision of where we are going, even if ever so lightly as to give it space to dance, then there is no guarantee of where we will end up.  This eclipse at 20’ Gemini is about drawing upon the multiflorus rich ancient and modern perspectives to allow a new vision, while simultaneously moving forward into the darkness of our collective destiny through this North Node eclipse.  

Darkness is associated with the Yin or feminine aspect of reality.  Like the void of the womb brings forth new life, the night and her dreamtime is a fertile void of creation and destruction.   The ring of fire created by the annular nature of this celestial event beckons us to open our vision wide for a new birth.  In the periphery of perception can be found creatures, realities and future timelines ready to converge with our path asking- what new visions are ready to be realized for you now?  Eclipses are intense and unpredictable by nature because they open portals between the seen and unseen realms, and there are major indications in indigenous prophecy also reflected in celestial events that point to this time as a most crucial point of transition for collective consciousness.

Retrograde trickster Mercury is cazimi the Sun the night of the eclipse bringing the unexpected while signifying the importance of directing our consciousness with focused intent, for we are all ultimately responsible for how we direct our minds and hearts.  Luckily we do not have to do it alone.  Squared by Neptune we are propelled into the collective unconscious to receive something from the dreamtime that may allow us to move through ideas that have been sticky, to find illumination is waiting just around the bend. In some essence, we are being asked to shift the collective unconscious into collective consciousness.

Juno on the South Node asks us to seek higher understanding around the ideals we have been fiercely committed to.  How can we transmute from connecting our ideals to a specific belief rooted in reality, and instead seek to live our ideals in a more authentic and permeable way?  There is great power when we can disentangle our ideals with particular schools or systems of thought, and instead seek the higher understanding.  This simple shift allows us to move through life freely, authenticating our highest selves into the reality of each moment like a waking dream.

There is an Toltec-Aztec prophecy about the larger cycles of time that says we are entering into the Age of Sixth Sun between the years 1991 and 2021.   According to “ 2012-2021- Dawn of the Sixth Sun: Path of Quetzalcoatl”  Toltec-Aztec elder Sergio Magana relays the unbroken transmission of this prophecy which says that in this time we shifting from one great age, or “sun”,  of humanity to another.   The beginning of the shift was in 1991, when the energy of the Sixth Sun would begin to enter the Earth’s field.  In the 2012 alignments the two energies were prophesied to be in perfect balance, and this year of 2021 is when the new Sun is said to become the dominant energy for thousands of years.

This new sun is said to be feminine in nature, as opposed to the Sun that ruled the past several thousand years which was yang, or masculine in nature.  The prophecy states that as we enter this Yin period the powers of feminine intuition which allow us to manifest from the darkness and work with the subconscious mind become more predominant as compared to the analytical, conscious and active mind that has dominated the last age.  It is said to be an era where humanity will live as if in a waking dream, where the thoughts and emotions of our subconscious mind become manifest instantly.  Key to this age is the concept of the collective unconscious made conscious.  Do you sense this shift in your own life or see it in the world around you?

Neptune squaring the nodes all year and especially these eclipses resonates greatly with these ideas, and provides a powerful perspective for the evolution of consciousness and the rebalancing of energies on Earth in aspect to everything from our relationships to our minds, one another, Nature and the Cosmos.  

This eclipse speaks to the power of our minds to create our realities, but in direct relationships with our ability to integrate the Neptunian aspect of our beings- our deep feminine, collective unconscious, subconscious and  mystic mind.  Neptune is the space of dreams and the undeniable knowing of the truth of Oneness.  To work constructively with Neptunian frequencies we must actively work with our own patterns of delusion, addiction, escapism and terror if we are to get to the highest vision we wish to see made manifest. 

It is said in one synopsis of Magana’s work that “  If up until now man has attempted to impose his domination over nature, under the new sun he will have to comply with her and this shall lead to great transformations affecting both the individual and the collective consciousness. “

The reality of this statement cannot be denied by any whose eyes are open.  The feminine is associated with the physical, material and natural world, which we are not only in relationship with in an external sense, but in the most intimate parts of our psyche as well- for we truly are one with her, a truth that is a key feature of all Indigenous Cultures and our collective ancestors.  

Uranus in Taurus for 7 years from 2019-2025 is a sign that we are ready for the re-realization of our Oneness as expressed through our collective consciousness once again and certainly marks the imminent shift in our relationships with nature and our bodies.  The choice is ours and the stars indicate that addressing our beliefs, perceptions, ideals and truth as a collective cannot be skirted if we are to move back into harmony with the planet and one another.

Saturn, the planet of materialization and reality in Aquarius, the sign of the visionary and groups we share visions with, aspects the nodes in a supportive trine and sextile.  This gives manifesting potential to this eclipse where our rewards come from our efforts.  It also implies the importance of reaching out to our friends and communities for support, collaboration and exciting ventures.  Loving, non-violent communication of our heart’s truth, no matter how changing it may be from moment to moment will support us tremendously.  

This is a powerful time to gather and share our visions, woes, downloads and dreams with one another in a loving, open-minded, curious, playful way! The New Moon is ripe for planting seeds for new projects that can be birthed through this eclipse portal.  We may also have to send some things through the portal to clear the way for these precious seeds to grow.

The power of collective consciousness increases the more we allow it’s truth to enter our everyday perception.  Perception shifts are a key idea when speaking of Gemini and the way this archetype plays with the many truths of this reality, ultimately seeking to reconcile our existence as both mortal and immortal beings, as sovereign individuals and one collective family.  May you honor the many truths of your beings and be surrounded with those who can support you in your journey back to wholeness and truth.

Blessings and Wholeness,

Zoey Wind

Sagittarius Super Blood Full Moon Eclipse at 4’48 Sag Revelation for Evolution

Sagittarius Super Blood Full Moon Eclipse at 4’48 Sag Revelation for Evolution

In the dark of the night there shines the Moon.  Our goddess amidst the sweet envelopment of night, showering us with silvery light that can reveal things Sun cannot.  Like how leaves glow with effervescent hues, lights from stars our souls have circled before and the sweet longing of the heart to be close to something juicy, raw, revealing.

And then, there is a darkening of her light.  It calls us into the spaces of the unseen, unknown and surreal.  From it spring things we didn’t realize were brewing, and some we did.  Eclipses merge the unconscious and the conscious realms.  They are inherently unpredictable in nature because it is super hard to predict that which we are not aware of.  But then again, we can direct frequencies, and does this not after all, help direct realty?

This Full Moon is also a Super Blood Moon Total Eclipse in Sagittarius and it bleeds for our remembrance of a deep inner truth within our beings.  Moon representing the soul meets with the South Node, or point of the collective soul of humanity seeking to release into spirit what stands in the way of our highest revelation for evolution’s sake. 

The Soul longs for revelation, like the heart longs to be revealed.  The world longs for your experience of her, your dreams await your arrival and all the Universe joys in its existence through the projection of your consciousness.  

Jupiter, ruler of Sagittarius, is in the mystical waters of Pisces, swirling through the collective unconscious, the space of dreams, symbols, trance-like states and openness to the flow of life.  It is where we remember ourselves as One- one with all.  The realization of ourselves as creator is perhaps the highest attainment in many ancient, spiritual and religious teachings, also a part of the Jupiterian world.  It can be found in the words of Jesus, the Buddha, St. Germain or simply heard in the whispers of the wind, the song of the soul, the humming of bees.

Sagittarius seeks truth at all costs, and this eclipse seeks your truth to be revealed.  It may require us to see through things that have become muddied, distorted or a little toxic.  It will require some old beliefs, judgements or strong opinions to be released.   We can in this lunation release them without judgement, but with gratitude for their lessons.  Because sometimes we have to see what we don’t want, to get really clear on what our soul truly yearns for. And when we can willingly release something that’s no longer serving us it allows something sweet and simple to slip in.  

The Centaur marries our wildness with our wisdom.  Take some time for ritual and intention, as well as adventure as you seek to know your soul, your heart and your truth more deeply.

The Sun, North Node, Mercury and Venus are all opposite the Moon lensing our focus towards how to find our truth amidst information overload, realizations of things not as we thought they were and a deep desire to make something more beautiful for the future.  We are in the eclipse portal until the Total Solar Eclipse on June 10th which will be particularly powerful in regard to our collective story, processing of information and visioning the future.  Clarity should come in and energies release around the Summer Solstice.

If Quantum Physics studies have shown that consciousness is the “hidden” factor of nature, long repressed and called things like magic, God, spirits, fantasy or false, then how long will it take us as a species to collectively awaken to our state of Godhood?  Called by many names, this realized state is beginning to be channeled in as the 5th dimension, the next level of perspective being added to the human experience.  

The last upgrade was the development of the neocortex, the most recent evolution of the brain, and has been associated with the “fall” from Eden, or paradise, in the Bible.  For it was in eating from the tree of knowledge that Adam and Eve gained higher consciousness.  Since that point we have been reconciling how to rise into the state of realizing ourselves as creators.  Of realizing our oneness, the truths beyond the veil, and yet in a way that allows us to remain here in this dimension, directing it without consciousness, activating our full potential, creating our reality consciously.

But what will we create?  Venus and Mercury are with the Sun on the North Node in Gemini saying- make it beautiful! Make it playful! Make it what your heart soul longs for!  Make it juicy and definitely make it about the types of relationships we want to have with one another, our lovers, community, children, elders, teachers, students, abundance, ideas and the material realm as perceived through the mind.  Also make it fun because Mercury loves some fun!

The Mutable axis of the signs Gemini-Sag and Virgo Pisces exemplifies the nature of spirit and how we understand, philosophize and embody spiritual truths.  Mercury is located within degrees of the Galactic Anticenter, a potent space in the sky where the realization of truth from the beyond is grasped.  Those things seemingly fleeting, slipping through our fingers most of the time, are made mentally tangible for sculpting through this eclipse portal.  

Mercury is slowing to turn retrograde three days after this eclipse so the next entire month will be about the alchemical cleansing, transmutations and shifting perspective of our minds, words,friendships and our relationship to creating beauty through how we choose to see and speak the world into being.

The overall energy of this Moon is to open us up to our higher knowing- let the revelations stream in, be open, be discerning and have faith that all of the Universe is conspiring in your favor!! And most importantly, whatever vision you seek to call in- make it Beautiful! Make it the most beautiful vision you can imagine!! And then tune into the magic of the upcoming powerful mercury Retrograde as an opportunity to keep revising.  When we begin conscious manifestation work it is important to keep learning from our mistakes, looking for new opportunities to improve, revise, edit and recreate.  The journey is the destination with Sagittarius, may we find the joy available in each breath and every step <3

Blessed Reveling Seekers!

Taurus New Moon- The Storm and the Beauty Way            May 11, 2021 11amPT/2pmET

Taurus New Moon- The Storm and the Beauty Way May 11, 2021 11amPT/2pmET

Art- Luis Tamani

The Jungle quakes in the stillness

The Great Tailed Grackle cries in anticipation

And I, I stand like ancient Stone

Amidst flourishing life

If we were to cry a moment

For our ancestors, for our mothers

Would the tears run red or golden hue?

I- I cry for every mothers love that has lived and never died

The heavens rumbles vibrate every body

Every stone, animal and wing

And the quaking is a promising

Of the coming of the Beauty Way

And I, I am the rich, fertile Soil

From which New Worlds are born

With all of the rotting that gives way to richness

Oh sweet reverence of the beauty that springs forth

In the dark of this New Moon there is a soul stirring.  The churning may produce a variety of experiences, sensations, emotions and/or fears.  It may also stimulate your desire for beauty and pleasure, your innate knowing of your worthiness to receive all that your heart desires. And just maybe, we can marry that joy and pleasure and abundance with the gratitude for the wounds that have caused us to grow stronger, become more flexible and stretch ourselves into new levels of awakening than we previously held possible.

The beauty of the way the lunations are playing out this year is that we get to work the signs in the opposite order than we typically do.  For example, typically a Taurus New Moon precedes a Scorpio Full Moon.  But this year we are receiving the illumination of how our inner world is manifesting followed by the opportunity to clear it out and refresh it.

Look back to the Scorpio Full Moon two weeks ago to examine the fears and shadow work that were viscerally apparent for you to work with.  Now examine where you are resistant to that work, perhaps denying yourself the breakthrough, the help, the freedom to reach out and seek resources for the support you need.  Taurus is about both what we can resource within ourselves and, when we need to dig deep within to find the courage to ask for what we need in the form of relationships, intimacy, guidance and healing- the Scorpio side of the polarity.

The Taurus New Moon is a celebration of fertility and abundance that comes from composting and shadow work that then gives birth to the deep, luscious beauty of the present moment.  She asks if we are living in dedication to walking the Beauty Way- hearts held high and standing firm in dedication to creating more beauty in every moment, every aspect, every layer of our being.  

Conjunct Black Moon Lilith and with aspects between Mars, Uranus and Chiron there is a deeper provocation in this lunation.  It is asking us to examine our traumas, wounds, rage and where we have felt specifically cast out or repressed in regard to our experience of embodiment that still stands in the way of us living a more beautiful life.  Any time the body is dishonored, disrespected or treated less than sacred there is an incongruence of truth within our bodies that creates a wound.  This may bring up deep and tender emotions, feelings, pain and rage.  Until we pause and acknowledge this wound and put some sweet salve on it, it may not be able to heal.

The salve in this case is a Venus in Gemini asking that we communicate from our hearts something important about our self-worth.  It could even be in communicating to ourselves something powerful by rewriting the story of our pains, our failures and our resentments.  Let forgiveness flow through you- let yourself be the hero or heroine in your own story.  Let the unconditional love of the Divine completely fill your being with the knowing that you deserve to heal, and in doing so you help heal the world.

We can sometimes get caught between what our personal heart truth requires, and what the tribe is telling or requiring us to do.  Where we want to run naked in the rain, and how our mothers raised us to feel about our nakedness.  How we feel about our sexuality, and how that is policed by laws and governments who dictate to us the freedoms we are allowed to have and those we should be ashamed of.  Sometimes we choose to sacrifice for the tribe, and other times we must walk a different path. 

 Perhaps the right and wrong are less important in the light of Jupiter in Aquarius squaring this New Moon whose most important question is that we be damn sure where our perspective comes from and why.  That we feel it deep within our bodies as well as connecting the stream of inspiration from the heavens, allowing the Above and the Below to inform us of our center.  Then, set the intentions of how you wish to move forward expressing your truth- can we do so in a way that continues to build stability, respect and honor for all?

The Sagittarius Lunar Eclipse on the 26th will reveal something from the unconscious that is ready to either go or come in to be worked with.  Some new perspective is asking to be seen and integrated.  This lunation offers a space for us to cleans the hurt, open wounds yet inflamed and possibly ignored that need to be cleared for this new vision to arise.  How can we create a sacred nest to heal, or activate our warriors’ fire for self-improvement because, well, you are worth it damnit! And it is not up to anyone but you to decide that you are worth the investment, care, tenderness and effort to heal.  And within that pledge, lies the space where new visions of life are born and miracles occur.

The key in flexing our Taurus strength is to activate the tools that bring stability to our lives, bodies, hearts and mind. This includes being with the stones, nature, embodiment practices, self-love, knowing deeply that we are worthy and deserving of all that our heart desires!   This includes letting our boats be rocked, accepting when we feel the shores of predictability shaking and knowing that the storm is here to cleanse and recalibrate.  We can engage our ability to transform as a tool for stabilizing.  And if we are in the throws of constant transformation then we can slow waaaaaay down and savor every luscious bite of every moment, seeking the stillness and beauty within the eye of the storm.

Set your intentions for unblocking, unsticking and releasing where you have become too rigid to allow healing, love and abundance into your life.  What are the stories you have adopted, had modeled or inherited that are keeping you from living your highest and best life?  Our need for love and secure relationships is directly related to our financial and material security.  

In the tribe we must be able to cultivate and maintain healthy relationships in order to facilitate the transactions that keep the supply of resources flowing between groups and individuals.  Opening our hearts and minds to others’ experiences, pausing to listen when someone needs to be heard, honoring our own needs and their communication are all integral to healthy community flow.  

There is profound healing and awakening activating in our lives right now.  It may require us to make some potentially difficult decisions and adjustments in our lives around our attachments, values, philosophies, how we activate our abundance in accordance with our ideals and the value systems that inform the relationships we choose to cultivate and those we are ready to release.  The primary relationship is to ourselves, our soul and its connection to our Higher Self as pure Source.  The stillness that leads to the profound and unwavering connection to that Source within is a powerful intention, fertile and awaiting you as its lover this New Moon.

Whatever needs to move out of the way for the abundance to flow let it go! And let the gratitude for all the beauty, good things, loving people in your life fill you to the brim! For after all isn’t that why we do the work?

Blessed Beauty Walking,

Zoey Wind

Beltane, the Scorpio Full Moon and Pluto Retrograde-       Be Love and Give Love

Beltane, the Scorpio Full Moon and Pluto Retrograde- Be Love and Give Love

Full Moon and Lunar Beltane: Monday April 26 8:31pmMT

Calendrical Beltane: May 1st

Astrological Beltane: May 5th- Sun at 15’ Taurus

Pluto Stations retrograde: April 27th

Deep Down Inside 

Where all memory resides

Lies a key

That unlocks the doorway to your future

Run or hide

And search outside

And freedom will not prosper

It is stillness that reveals

The deep wellspring of the soul

And anguishes acceptance

That opens the doorways to beyond

Run and escape as we may try, it is certainly true that we cannot avoid ourselves for long.  We may rebirth many times, but the parts of us that have gone unseen will continue to remain until we let them have their time in the Sun.  To have their true recognition and release.  Recognize to realize.  Realize to release.  Realize what?  The freedom you truly seek.  The upgrades you are striving for.  The next level of growth you are nurturing.  All of the hopes and dreams of who you know you were born to be manifesting effortlessly.  Of finding that all you are worthy of receiving is already with you.

This Full Moon in Scorpio is opposite the Sun, Uranus, Venus and Mercury in Taurus so our whole inner psyche is getting a huge upgrade right now.  You may have noticed the highly electric energy in the air all week as Venus and Mercury were kissing Uranus, Lord of Thunder and Lightning, the Great Awakener and Liberator.  If we have been able to calm our nervous systems enough to find stillness, we have likely been sucked into the ascension potential in the field like sparklers waiting for us to grab their stick and direct the pixie dust at will.

Scorpio is the Wizard or Alchemist archetype, and there is high potential for having some very real breakthroughs right now.  Stay grounded and hydrated, find stillness in the eye and see what is ready to be realized.  Awakening is easiest done gently, with sweet words and touches.  

How radically can we love ourselves? Accept whatever arrives at our doorstep and make choices to deal with it in the way that makes us feel happiest?  Sometimes our highest solution or outcome is not among the choices laid out to us by our parents, teachers or authority.  And that is totally ok, and actually quite amazing and liberating to step into.

There is a calling for us to be with our family, tribe and co-conspirators in life in a way that is radically new and more authentic.  How deeply can we honor one another’s experience at this time?  The realms of Scorpion also meld with those of Phoenix and serpent; both creatures known for their power to transmute.  But each must release something and allow for the intensity of the process to occur.  It is said that the alchemist’s work was as much about creating “ethical and spiritual conditions for their operations” as it was about the operations themselves.  In other words, most of the work was energetic, and not in the physical realms.  This is the work of Scorpio and the Pluto.

Mars is the traditional ruler of Scorpio and currently the warrior is getting his feelings on in Cancer.  This lunation is about feeling in every single sense of the word.  Feeling our emotions, our memories, last year, our shadows that creep up like bogeymen in the night.  

The Sun with Uranus says- look at it.  Don’t turn away.  Embrace intimacy with yourself the way you would a small child who comes to you crying and seeking comfort- with unconditional love.  If we don’t have a shadow-work practice, this is a powerful time to learn about it.  We can also work it out through the body with movement, yoga, shaking, soaking or cooking something delicious for yourself.    

We are celebrating Lunar Beltane with this Full Moon.  The halfway point between Equinox and Summer Solstice, the time when the light is overtaking the dark in the Northern Hemisphere.  Taurus season is about relishing in every savory moment of earthly existence possible.  There is a lot of Venusian energy still very strong as Venus is preparing to rise in the evening sky.

This holy day and its opposite point on the wheel, All Hallow’s Eve, are when the veil between this world and the otherworld is thinnest.  It is a time when we can connect more readily with the realms of the fae, the Green Man and devic realms.  Listen for the plants to speak to you.  Listen to the ones that call, they are your allies.  Seek new ways to work with them in your life, be it just being with the plant, or as essential oils, culinarily, as a smudge, bouquet, tincture or essence.  Simply hanging plants to dry in bundles in the home has been used since the dawn of humanity as a spiritual and healing technology.

A Scorpio Moon is when the most frightening, gruesome, unbearable things about this reality can be fully transmuted into something beautiful.  It is the composting work.  When life seems unbelievable, we achieve the unbelievable.  And in realizing that we have the ability to direct our willpower in such a way, we stand fully in our true power.  Springtime reminds us of the fruit, or flower of the deep composting that just went on all winter.  Let yourself receive the gifts of the work you have done.  We are all truly worthy and deserving of having and receiving everything we want, in every area of our lives.

Pluto is stationing retrograde days after the Full Moon, meaning that this lunation will reveal where we need to take our power back over the next 6 months.  Pluto governs shadow-work, shamanic realms, the deep parts of our soul healing, sexuality, desire, obsession and that which we repress because of trauma or some experience that told us we weren’t allowed to do, be or experience something.  If some scary shadow work is coming up, or even some gentle work, remember, that inside every shadow of our being is a pure desire for love.  The crucible of transmutation is in the heart, and it is through focusing on that pure desire for love, the purity of our own hearts, that we literally transform our shadows into our greatest gifts.  

This is the gift of Scorpio medicine.  The place of cracking open, of burning and molting like the flying embers of the phoenix across the midday Sun, into the dark of night.  It is the space betwixt this world and the other, the place of Shamanic visioning where we receive messages from the netherworld.  It is the crystal in the wizard’s staff, containing worlds inside of worlds.  It is the mind’s eye where all is perceived and received.  

There is a lot of energy around how we relate to our sensuality, sexuality and the structure and boundaries needed to do this work.  We are collectively tasked with healing thousands of years of sexual oppression preceded by a more animalistic Age of Aries expression.  We have both wild, untamed desires within us, and repressed and shamed baggage.  Perhaps you have neither personally, but surely the collective imbalances around our sexuality as a species are obvious, and we will all be confronted with that work in some way or another.  

Taurus is about our relationships to our bodies and the material world, Scorpio to the pulsing desire and willpower that drives it.  We must attend to both to feel fully alive, seeking to be neither enslaved by them or neglectful.  Let this week reveal to you where your work lies in these realms.  And approach it gently, sweetly, lovingly as possible.

Blessed Beltane,

Zoey Wind

Aries New Moon- Joyously Alive                               Sunday April 12, 2021                     8:31pmMT/10:31pmET

Aries New Moon- Joyously Alive Sunday April 12, 2021 8:31pmMT/10:31pmET

Artwork: Joshua Mays

May your hearts burst open

Like the swelling spring buds

Beyond space and time

Does her heart song go

Her fragrance swept

Through every universe

It’s ok  to heal.  It’s ok to do better, feel better, live better and better each day.  It’s ok to keep climbing, playing, striving, and desiring.  It’s ok to wish for something more, greater and that has never before been seen.  The luminous planet of Mars is our sacred will, our sacred desire, our sacred calling that keeps us striving to stay alive, like the heart strives to beat another beat.  

An Aries New Moon is cause to celebrate.  It gives us the passion for living.  It ignites our spirit and minds with life force, just as the Earth’s life-force begins to pulse, ever louder at this time in the Northern Hemisphere, and begins to dive deep into the Earth in the Southern.  The veil is thin in these weeks leading up to Beltane.  Good thing the Ram’s energy is here to ignite our senses once again.

Being alive.  This is the essence of Mars.  It is the spark of life, the prima vitae, the secret fire, the great will and the freedom to seek and continue to seek your truth, your destiny, your essence of being.  Into the dark of this Moon plunges the Ram in search of our path at all costs.  For what is life if we don’t have risk? It is our mortality that creates our sense of aliveness.  This is the season where the first little baby birds break through their tough shell and awaken to a whole new life awaiting ripe with possibility.  This is when the blossom had courage enough to break open.  

The beauty of challenging ourselves is alive in this New Moon, with a beautiful essence of Mercury and Venus to make sure it’s still sweet, tender and teaching us something.  Sun and Venus square Pluto so there is even more shamanic initiation afoot.  Be ready to learn something new, love something newly and hopefully love yourself in ways you never dreamed imaginable.  Mars, ruler of this lunation is applying to a trine with Jupiter in Aquarius- meaning that we can expand beyond previously held beliefs and borders created by the mind to  categorize and analyze.  These can be stretched open and new space to breathe is found.

Squaring Neptune, Mars must learn to keep his focus amidst the mystical realms.  Deep dreaming and visioning are heightened if we can keep focus and intention upon that which we are seeking.  The ancestors are calling to us to remember them, and to realize that when we choose to work on ourselves, we do it for our entire lineage,  the entire collective of the species and all of consciousness, everywhere.  So whatever we are ‘working on” within ourselves, we are working to heal for all beings.  

Both this New Moon and the culminating Full Moon in two weeks are ruled by Mars.  This one being Mars’s day sign of Aries, and the Full Moon being in Mars’s feminine sign of Scorpio.  The shamanic energy of Mars is the power to move through old or stuck energy and seek fresh life force one again.  It is the power of renewal through life, death and rebirth.  It is the source of vitality.  It is the Phoenix that rises again and again.  It is the young sprout, ready to take on the world.  It is the joy of living.  Go enjoy being alive.

Colm Holland wrote, “‘When we connect with our innermost passion we possess the secret fire to create the change for good that we seek.’  The Secret Fire of the alchemists, or kundalini energy takes the form of the Serpent for Scorpio, and the Ram for Aries.  The serpent is traditionally associated with kundalini energy that slithers up the spine and activates all of the chakra systems which are actually found to be clusters of neurons where information is organized to be applied somewhere and in some way. In Aries it takes the form of the horns, spiraling consciousness up towards the heavens, spiraling in the golden ratio that channels life force into life itself.

It was the addition of the mental principle, or mind that allows us to form judgements about good and evil into the human being that tipped the balance of our stay along the plane of the great garden of Eden, creating the dreaded “fall”. But what if it’s just the next phase of our evolution?  The mind creates our ability to judge our experience, therefore creating experience.  We are creatures capable of being both one with our environment, a pure being of the senses, and a thinking, discerning consciousness. Aries is about the merging of these forces- the animal and the mind, as represented by the horns of the ram that spiral up towards the heavens, and inward to regenerate, rebirth and renew the self along the journey of life.

Mercury- is with the Sun, Moon and Ceres during this New Moon.  How are we telling the story to ourselves about who we are and where we are going?  Is it with a passion for life?  Purpose? What we are passionate about is our guide along the spiritual path.  What lights us up ignites the secret fire within, with which we can direct mind, life and our experience.  Let this moon guide you in how to direct your life force energy more divinely inspired to create yourself anew this spring, in your highest and best experience of life. 

May the swelling of spring buds soon burst forth in all of our hearts as a beautiful song.

Love,

Zoey Wind

Libra Full Moon- Rebirth of the Goddess                       March 29th, 2021                                 11:48amPT/12:48pmMT

Libra Full Moon- Rebirth of the Goddess March 29th, 2021 11:48amPT/12:48pmMT

This Libra Full Moon is ruled by the planet Venus- the Great Goddess of the sky who is in the heart of the Sun right now with the centaur Chiron in the sign of the warriors, Aries.  This is the middle of her 584 day cycle that began in Gemini last June.  This is her moment of initiation, from the sacred Androgyne of the Alchemists, the perfect unification of the primordial self being reborn now as the alchemical Warriess.  It’s time for an upgrade for all of us regarding our values, beauty, relationships, worthiness, love of beauty, wealth and prosperity.  

The Goddess- Too long her face painted as unidirectionally meek, mild, tender, nurturing is raging out of these confines.  We honor this face, and we evoke her many faces now.  As they may serve the highest and best good for all beings and the evolution of consciousness in the Universe. 

The mysteries of the Divine Initiation of the feminine are as old as time.  They were celebrated in the ancient world and performed annually as the story of Persephone, queen of hell and goddess of spring resurrected every year in the ancient world.  The recent Venus cycles of the past 3 years have been aligned to reignite this tradition, honoring the past, and evoking our birthright as divine creators to infuse our evolved essences into new ritual and rites of passage.

This is the story of initiation of the feminine.  A story that was forgotten as well as suppressed over the centuries.  But be not mistaken, no one, and nothing could remove the power of the feminine, they could only try and make us forget it.  But knowledge is stored deep within the DNA, and cannot be erased, only suppressed.

Here we dance for the Underworld Goddess- for Hecate, the Crone, Persephone, Innanna, Erishkegal, Hell, Durga, Kali.  Venus currently is the Aries Goddess being re-initiated- we dance for the courageous, fierce, powerful, sovereign, sexy, embodied goddess- Durga, Joan of arc, Diana, goddess of the hunt, Athena, goddess of Wisdom and War, Kali, she who brings justice, she who leads warriors into battle, she who knows what she believes, she who quests for the truth of her own soul, who wants and needs no other approval than which she receives from the Divine within her. She who does all of this, that she may restore justice and balance to the whole.

The rise of the warriors feminine was seen through the last cycle of Venus which was the Aries cycle as shown through the collective representation of her in films like Wonder Woman and the rise of women to positions of power.  This cycle continues her forward, as it began with the Gemini goddess, reborn as the Aries goddess.  The fierce feminine is alive and strong right now.  The goddess of initiation is awakening.  Will you heed the call of ancient stories begging telling, of beauty and pleasure, of brilliance and metaphysical awakenings, of the mythic and the mysteries longing to be heard?  

The Gemini Goddess whose grand cycle we are in now is the Hermetic goddess, the Androgene to the alchemists.  She holds the keys to the union of opposites, the riddles, rhymes and mysteries, the story of primordial unity that must be separated before it can attain reunification.  

The rites of the ancient alchemists are being reborn again in the goddess now.  She has had her undoing in the primordial waters of Pisces, where she was obliterated, to be purified in the sign of Aries- the Warrior priestess of initiation and honor, and she will rise again as evening star around May 3 in the sign of Taurus, near fixed star Algol- the embodied priestess of passion and intensity, she who is here to reclaim her relationships to her body and the Earth through story, magic and myth.

The Underworld Goddess begs your integration now.  She who is wrathful, fierce, rageful, resentful, courageous, proud, righteous, protective, sexual, shrewd, cunning, fiery, intensely burning to be seen.  Just witness her.  She serves your highest evolution when you are able to fully integrate her.  She need not be feared, this was the story of the past.  Remember that the Goddess was worshipped the world over for millennia for her cunning, strategy, wisdom, intuition, integrity as well as her love, fertility and abundance long before the patriarchy sought to contain her power.  

The sacred womb of the feminine was seen as containing the whole of the Universe within it, a literal stargate through which the Cosmos are born and reborn again and again.  That womb lies within each of us, a cosmic portal to our future destiny as a species, as a cosmic ray of the Mind of the Creator.  Listen closely to what is asking to be born.  It will be made visible around the 3rd of May.

What is longing within you to be healed?  Within your Sacred warrior soul?  Is it your sense of self love? Freedom? Courage? Heart? Action? Wisdom?  The key to healing for this year and half period is to RE-WRITE THE STORY.  Change your perception, your perspective.  It may require conscious meditation and re=programming of the subconscious mind, but If we can do this, magic will happen like never before.  

What part of your old self are you truly ready to let die at this time be it greed, vanity, self-deprecation, denial of your higher self, fear of love or being loved?  What old stories are attached to her? They cannot come with you into this new birth now.  Where do you seek personal healing that you can then share with the world as your highest gift?  In the Underworld the Goddess meets Chiron, great alchemist, healer and mentor.  She asks him for a key to her healing now- and if you wish, you may do the same.  

Aries is about our sense of self, our identity, our self-image and Venus in this sign is about our self-love, worthiness and dedication to our souls journey for awakening.  It is reflected in the light of the Libra moon this Sunday- honor those around you as sacred mirrors.  Reflect love and beauty and healing to those around you.  

No one wants to be torn apart in order to see themselves.  Let this cycle do that for them.  Let’s reflect our truth with courage and directness if needed, cut or release relationships that you can’t speak your truth to and welcome in those that have enough self-reflection to open to healing with the courageous force of a dragon.

Lay your altar, place your feathers, light you candles and say your prayers.  This day, this Full Moon is a powerful portal for us as individuals and a collective.  It shows us that when we do our own inner work, we do it for the world.  And when we show up for others, we are healing ourselves.  Pray that your deep knowing of your divinity be restored, that you may remember what you have always known deep down inside- that you are worthy of true healing, vitality and to stand courageously, boldly, beautifully as yourself before all of the world.  You only have to choose it.

This lunation holds Mars in gemini on the North Node in a trine to Saturn and the Moon.  There is a sense of destiny tied to the work we are doing now, especially when we have the courage to think for ourselves, take up our pens and write our own chapter in the Book of Life.  The Mind is a direct portal to the Divine, and the Heart is the compass.  When we bring these into coherence, that is when the magic happens.  

This is a moon of setting our course with conscious intent.  Do we choose love, even when love and beauty seem so far away?  Do we choose beauty, even when we are surrounded by those who choose fear?  Do we choose kindness and compassion in the face of anger or rage?  Do we surround ourselves with people to support us in advocating for ourselves and our needs? 

There is a deep healing of the heart awakening now, one that can only be found in the face of our darkness, individually and collectively.  For the stars only come out at night, and love is only known, only truly appreciated, when we have known loss of it.

The warrior’s path is not easy, but it is righteous and true.  And its rewards are far greater than gifts that are just handed to us.  Be grateful for your challenges, find their beauty and how they give you strength, fight and inspiration.  And most importantly, engage the inner work that allows you to know what your heart truly stands for, or else all is truly lost.

Blessed New Beginnings,

Zoey Wind

Pisces New Moon March 13th 23’03 PISCES at 2:21amPT/3:21amMT- Venusian Dreams

Pisces New Moon March 13th 23’03 PISCES at 2:21amPT/3:21amMT- Venusian Dreams

Tuco Amalfi- The Invisible Path

Pisces is the vast collective subconscious.  The mysterious 5th element of Ether.  The great Cosmic Void, Womb of creation.  The numinous space between Dawn and Dusk, when the veil to the Spirit realms is thin and blurred.  Pisces is the veil itself.  The substrate upon which sound and light move like waves.  It is the undulating current of the ethers that all of creation forms upon.  And while it is numinous, we can still affect it, and even tune it through the frequency we cast with our hearts.

Imagine a vast 3D array of points equally spaced throughout all of the Universe and Multiverse, like the points on a piece of graph paper, extended in all directions.  This is the field of Pisces.  Each of the other signs are a sacred geometric pattern within this vast field, but Pisces is the field itself into which all else dissolves.  The thing is, we can tune this field to a particular frequency which then helps define the channels that open to flow of the myriad possibilities of frequency.  The trick is accessing our collective subconscious, and making the unconscious, conscious, actively reshaping and reworking it with the frequency of the heart, and releasing it back to the field.

When we work with Piscean dreamwork, we are accessing realms across time and space.  Therefore, work we do through this archetype can influence many other lifetimes, dimensions and timelines.  It’s no wonder this sign can create overwhelm within this dimension which has been densely attached to the mechanistic, cause and affect based method of understanding. But this overwhelm serves to show us where we need better boundaries, new perspectives and greater mystical perspective on this life.

The ancients remembered the field of Pisces, and the modern physicists working in the Meta and Quantum realms are re-remembering once again.  As we embrace the Mysteries of Pisces, we unlock the very mysteries of the Universe as held within the collective unconscious.  We also are reminded of the lessons of deep letting go of what we do not understand, of deep, deep surrender to what we cannot control, and are called into a cultivation of faith in the Natural Order of the Cosmos.

To access this realm we must access our inner knowing through our emotional bodies as a channel to the higher realms.  Pisces is the realm of the Akashic records, where all information and events are stored.  To move through the numinous waters of the fishes, we must have streamlined focus, intention and clarity of that which we are seeking, coupled with a surrender to the flow of the current we find ourselves in.  This is why it requires us to become intensely intimate with our emotional waters until they settle enough for us to see clearly the island ahead we are seeking.

We attain this focus and clarity by balancing the Piscean frequencies with consciously directed thought of the mind, our consciousness as it channels through our material bodies held within the sign of Virgo.  This past Virgo full moon illuminated so much of where we want to work harder, do better, be of greater service and cultivate mastery within ourselves, our lives and our crafts. Keeping our space and bodies clean, detoxing, exercise, dreamwork, traversing natural altered states instead of substance induced ones can be balanced paths to accessing Piscean magic.

This new moon opens the channels to recognize that the work is not only in the physical, but also in the unseen realms of emotions, the heart and our understanding of ourselves within the greater Cosmic Whole.  This New Moon is so much about love, relationships, relating with others and opening our hearts and minds to others.  Venus is deep in the underworld, at the midpoint in her great cycle with the Sun and Earth where she is in full surrender and abandon to the greater cosmic forces transmuting her according to grand cycles.

What is the new Venusian Dream evolving at this time within you?  Where are you feeling a deep release of old values, relationships, ways of relating to others, your body, addictions, escapism, codependence, avoidance, overwhelm, toxic emotional patterns? Where is your world view or perspective on a situation needing a shift?  Where are you needing more structure and healthy boundaries?  Where do you need to release old beliefs and ideas that are holding you back from breaking through into living your best life?

 Divination is especially charged under a Pisces Moon. If you want to get more in touch with your muse or your intuition, I encourage you to spend at least 20 minutes each morning this week with a cup of tea or coffee, a pen and paper or an oracle deck, the I Ching or any other divination method that speaks to you.  And just be present with your emotions.  Open to write, be present with yourself, draw cards and contemplate your emotions, meditate and journey through them.  Refrain from drawing too hard of conclusions until the 20th and then the Full Moon on the 28th, but if there are clear boundaries or things to be released, offer them to this New Moon, and then let them go.  We can use this time as opportunity to practice being in flow with, surrender to and honoring of your emotional state.

The modern world keeps trying to rush us towards some great mountain upon which we are sold lies the illusion of success, happiness or accomplishment.  The truth is, behind that mountain is another one, and another one, and another one.  Instead, Pisces reminds us that in sitting still, closing our outer eyes and opening the inner, we can climb all of those mountains, and gain a perspective far more vast and timeless than with our eyes open.

The Goddess is in a great transformation, dreaming a new dream, deep in the cosmos, aligning with Neptune, channeling the higher essences of Agape Universal Love and upgrading her frequency.  Let her metamorphosis happen within you and learn to identify it without this month to understand better. 

How we do relationships is getting a much needed seeding into its next phase of evolution at this time.  And collectively we can certainly see the need for it. Let us truly release what is no longer serving us from the Old Earth in terms of our values, emotions, love, relationship woundings, our psychic abilities, our interconnectedness and emotional bodies as we step into the New Earth.

You may shock and surprise yourself with upgrades in how you relate to others- especially looking for the ability to create healthier boundaries while being more open, available emotionally and heart centered than ever before.  These upgrades have been long coming, so they may trickle in in sequence with work you’ve been doing, or flash in like lightning if we have been resisting them.

So this Pisces New Moon, we consciously tune our frequencies to that of love, compassion and understanding for ourselves and others.  Creating boundaries and healthy decisions of who, what and where we place ourselves, knowing that we will be more easily tuned to the vibrations around us, and that is ok.  It is ok to be affected by the world, it means we are in tune with it.  It is also ok to feel overwhelmed by what is around us, for this teaches us where we need to create boundaries and new ways of relating with life.

May we refrain from blaming those around us for how we feel, but still recognize that we can shift our frequency by shifting our environment and where we put our energy.  Also remembering that others’ feelings cannot permeate us unless we have well worn grooves in that frequency, and there is no need to judge.  We can simply focus on shifting our frequency by bringing in sound, music, art, song, color, creativity, movement and joy.  Perspective shift and avoiding stagnation and toxic buildup are keys to success in the Piscean realms.  

Blessings and Venusian Dreams,

Zoey Wind

The Saturn- Uranus Cycle- “Don’t Go Back to Sleep”                 Closing Square Wednesday, February 17, 2021

The Saturn- Uranus Cycle- “Don’t Go Back to Sleep” Closing Square Wednesday, February 17, 2021

Gyuri Lohmuller

‘The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.
Don’t go back to sleep.
You must ask for what you really want.
Don’t go back to sleep.
People are going back and forth across the doorsill
where two worlds touch.
The door is round and open.
Don’t go back to sleep.’

Jalal-ud-din Rumi

In the past month, we have been building slowly towards the first of three hits of the Saturn-Uranus square this year. The first one is on February 17th, followed by the second on June 14th and the third on December 24th 2021.  These three passings are a part of the closing square, or rather the fourth episode in a four-book series that began in 1988.  That chapter, interestingly enough, began at Galactic Center- where the major alignments of the Mayan Calendar for 2012 were, and where our Winter Solstices are still aligning to.  Meaning, this cycle’s impact is not just historical, it is epochal.

The Sabian Symbol for the 29th degree of Sagittarius is “A fat boy mowing the lawn of his house on an elegant suburban street.”  Well, it doesn’t take much to understand how this image represents so many of the problems of modern living as defined by the western world, the American Dream have gone sadly awry.  Here we have the maintenance of appearance, the ‘keeping up with the jones’s,’ the presentation of ‘social respectability’ as a representation of good moral conduct.  But if we look deeper, and with what we know now about the woes created by such a dream, there is quite a lot to this image. 

The young boy is overweight, his health is in question, but it is sure he has more than enough financially to attain it.  The lawn is a symbol of presentation to the community that they keep up appearances. However, there is no true sustenance in the lawn.  It does not produce food, medicine or floral beauty.  It does not feed livestock that gives back to the community. It has no trees to produce oxygen.  Instead, it requires unnatural amounts of water to produce something that may or may not be in its natural habitat.  It is actually a stressor on the community.  And nothing in this image actually promotes the true sustainable wellbeing of the people. It is a symbol of each person’s autonomy to provide for themselves, needing nothing from each other or the earth.  But it is in fact a lie.  This is a symbol of constructed reality that is detached from both its greater environment, culture and cosmos, but creates a façade to keep the society happy. 

For in the reality outside of this image, there are people farming the Earth for the food that boy eats.  There are people working in factories to make the lawnmower he is using.  There is a total lack of symbolism marking from where that boy came- the cultural roots and traditions which gave his family the ability to buy such an elegant, suburban home, the greater environmental context that bred him, the values his ancestors held, other than perhaps progress. 

This image neither progresses us forward, nor holds onto what is rich in heritage.  It is profoundly related to this Saturn-Uranus dance between the old and the new.  The 1980’s were the height of the manifestation the American, capitalist dream.  Where the new standard was set from the old vision of progress, and it was also the beginning of the decline.  Only the illusion of the success of that dream was short lived, for it was lacking in moral compass and a resonance with natural law as the seeding of the Saturn-Uranus cycle in the sign of Sagittarius was a sign of.

We know this because also in 1988, three days before first Saturn-Uranus cycle began that we are in the final stretch of now, Climate change first made front page news.  On June 23 of that year the Greenhouse Effect was officially presented to the US Senate as having clear cause and effect relationship with the burning of fossil fuels.   Now we are at the third quarter square and wrap up finale of this image.  One where we must ask- what has this dream of modernism really given us?  Where and how MUST we re-vision the values and ideals that set this ball in motion? Or perhaps, the lack thereof.

The power of this transit is to illuminate exactly that.  To look to the archetype of Sagittarius which represents the Earth, natural law, philosophy, education, our beliefs and seeking the meaning of life, adventure and truth now lensed through the signs of Aquarius and Taurus where the two gas giants now reside.  We are now integrating this lesson along the lines of technology, human rights, elitism, our food systems, how we relate to our body and our senses, our self-worth and creating a space in this world for all of these things in greater balance and harmony.

This is an absolute crucial time in history.  One where we are tasked as a civilization to truly examine the depth of our beliefs- on all levels.  From where we are too rigid and stuck, to where we are too quick to forget the lessons of the past.  To truly witness ourselves and our decisions with keen, analytical minds that are open to something so radically new, it might frighten us at first.  We are asked to be both pioneering, and wise.  Radical and discerning.  Human and God-like.  To review history in the name of progress.

This is a time of reconciliation for humanity- on so many levels.  As the species of the planet die off at mass, our food sources compromised by scientific experimentation without moral regard or consideration, the mass corporatization of health care and the human genome, the capitalization of the human psyche and desire body; now it is the human race that is experiencing the threat of extinction.  The seed set at the 29th degree of Sagittarius is evident everywhere we look- are we simply presenting as good moral citizens, or have we tended our own inner gardens in context with the greater whole of the cosmos enough to be prepared to find new solutions held in a truly holistic vision for the future of humanity and the planet?

As we progress the planets urge that we MUST ask “is this morally sound?” “Have we considered how this will affect the collective, the earth, all species, future generations, future planets?” Perhaps it is wise to go slowly and truly observe what the potential outcomes of our actions will be before making huge decisions from which we cannot turn back.  Uranus is progress, technology and breakthrough, and Saturn is the consequences of our actions.  If our decisions have been sound, wise and responsibly made, then the consequences are usually more like rewards.  If not, they can be devastating.

A square is always a time for a decision or action and the closing square is time for psychological integration.  With a Saturn in Aquarius we are looking specifically at our decisions around technology, flight, humanitarian concerns, larger groups and the elite, progress, revolution and that which is alien.  It is time to look at who we are considering heroes and who we consider lost to the past.  If the world leaders have allowed the destruction of the majority of the species on Earth and lost touch with how to care for our bodies and each other in the face of a pandemic for example, is it truly responsible to be taking their advice on how to solve these problems? Or looking to colonize other planets? 

There is no clear right or wrong answer, but there is a great cosmic calling to use our wisdom, discernment and visionary intuition to truly integrate the conundrum of the modern world and all of its woes.  One thing is for sure, science has not given us the dream life it promised.  Perhaps we need to consider why more deeply.

This is not to say that we have completely lost how to care for each other.  There are so many communities whose hearts still beat strong, who have not forgotten how to heal with plants and food, how to regenerate the soil and soul simultaneously, how to heal a broken heart or reconnect to meaning and purpose in life.  How to make innovative change that is wise and just.

These are the beating hearts of Uranus in Taurus and the strong social structures of Saturn in Aquarius.  Of the awakening that comes from within the beating heart of humanity.  Of our ancient future.  Of the remembering that the future generations are just us being reborn.  Of the beauty of embodiment and its sacredness worth fighting for.  Of the awakening potential within each human, each stone, each flower and sunset.  Of the power of sharing a meal with another, connecting with the very thing that we all share- our humanness and its tie to our bodies.   Of remembering the most innovate solutions are simple ones.

The seed of this Saturn Uranus cycle being at the final degree of Sagittarius says that the meta-theme of this alignment, which will be the defining major aspect for all of 2021, is our overall philosophy on the meaning of this whole thing we call life.  If, perhaps we consider this life to be a one-time shot, devoid of higher or deeper meaning, without soul or consequence, then perhaps the current trajectory of mankind is just fine.  But, if we believe there is some greater meaning, some more profound illumination to be had after this flesh is gone, that our actions send out ripples into space time that bounce and merge and undulate into further energies throughout the multiverse, then perhaps this year will produce real change.

In past Saturn-Uranus alignments, this change has come about in the form of riots, civil wars, revolutions, reformations and new world orders.  We are in the midst of 4 major outer planetary alignments that have signaled whole shifts in the world stage of power, prosperity and philosophy and we are certainly in the midst of a great transition in this time.  It may not be for another 11 years that we see the full outcome of these changes when we begin a new Saturn-Uranus cycle in 2032.

This particular alignment asks that we thoroughly assess- what is truly of value from our past?  What can we learn from our elders before they go?  What can they teach us about our humanity?  They are the last of the generations on this planet who grew up without technology.  Certainly, they hold codes of humanity that are precious beyond our knowing.

And we must be ready to step forward as the next generation of elders.  Seeking to finish the work our ancestors did not complete.  Every generation will leave behind work for the next, and we will be included in this.  May we pick up that work with dignity and honor.  May we choose to progress forward while declaring to do our best not to repeat the mistakes of the past.  May we find and choose leaders who have done the inner work to know what is of true value in this world.  May we study and learn from the wisdom of natural law and ourselves as a part of it once more, that our next phase of advancement can be in accordance with it and thus lead to true miracles of science and spirit.  And may we see this as the highest form of advancement our species can take at this time.

Each one of us holds a shining key of this next stage in our evolution.  What door will your key unlock?

Blessed Turning,

Zoey Wind

Aquarian New Moon                                                     Thursday February 11, 2021 at 24’ Aquarius                                    11:06PT/2:06pmET                                                                      A Baptism of Starlight

Aquarian New Moon Thursday February 11, 2021 at 24’ Aquarius 11:06PT/2:06pmET A Baptism of Starlight

Imagine the four planets, Sun and Moon in Aquarius are pouring the iridescent, pearlescent, luminescent light of inspiration upon us.  The image for Aquarius is the water bearer, but just what exactly is in the vessel this star being holds?  Is it the nectar of immortality from Saturn?  The light of inspiration from Venus?  The vaccines to save lives from Mercury?  The awakening to our already innate immortality from the Sun?  The genius spark within each of us from Jupiter? Whatever gifts or blessings are showering upon you now, may we all open to receive them and be prepared to set powerful intentions to honor them this New Moon.

Inherent in all of these images is the connection of our human selves to something humanity has deemed to come from above- be it in the form of lighting, starlight or a burning bush high on the mountaintop; this powerful Aquarian Age, ushered by the Saturn-Jupiter alignment on winter solstice is a ripe and fertile plot for the planting in the dar of this New Moon.  May we open ourselves as clear, heart centered channels for the truth and inspiration to flow for the highest good for all beings.

Uranus, modern ruler of Aquarius is in the Earthly sign of Taurus which reminds us to honor the sacred senses of the body, pleasure, beauty, the Earth, Cosmos and our humanity.   To activate the gifts of this Aquarian stellium we must move our bodies.

Aquarius as an archetype is sometimes called the ascended human or cosmic human in its light, in its shadow it can be the cyborg or dictator who has disconnected from their humanity.  With Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius in the sign of Taurus for the next several years, we are being asked to anchor our ascension as “inscension”/awakening to include honor for our human form and the Earth it is actually a part of.  We are being reminded that as we advance as a species not to leave the body and the Earth behind.   May we remember what it is to be human in these times.  May we remember the importance of connecting with the people we love- in these times that can change in every moment. Forgive your family and loved ones where you need to, the gift of our togetherness is the greatest gift we have in this life.

Mercury’s retrograde in Aquarius currently is asking that we review everything we think we know about ourselves as modern humans and the modern life we have become complacent within.  Aquarius is the sacred rebel, here to challenge, tear down and upset the status quo in service to the highest evolution of the species as a part of the Earth and Cosmos. Bless the inclinations of your sacred rebellious heart at this time as it serves the highest good.

This is without a doubt, the moment of the great transformation of society.  Or at least it must be, if we wish to awaken to our highest potential as both Cosmic and Earthly beings.  This lunation offers a profound opportunity for the great activation of new communities, groups, allegiances and ideas that promote humanitarianism as well as honoring the Anima Mundi- the world soul.  To take this to the next level we must address the shadow of Aquarius as elitism and exclusivity within groups. May we also address where we can have an identity and a community that does not place itself above others, but ensures its vision and mission is inclusive of any who want to be a part of it and are aligned with the vision and purpose.

These groups and their structure may require us to draw upon the examples of our ancestors who were closer to remembering their humanity than the majority of the westernized world in the past 300 years.  Who did not see themselves as separate from one another, or the world.  Who remembered our interconnectedness not only with one another, but with all living and non-living parts of this great giant organism we are a part of, called Earth, and the heavens above, called Cosmos.

Perhaps it was the steady separation of humans through modern thought that has inevitably lead us to this forced separation that we may remember our way back to our true selves.

The modern mind, as it has progressed since the Copernican revolution and the last Enlightenment is now facing its shadow.  It is time to evolve with the Earth, or the Earth will evolve us out.  Like an organ found only in ancient, prototypical stages of development in a species that eventually outlived its purpose.  Or rather, that became utterly confused on what exactly that was and tried to destroy the rest of the organism.

Jupiter is with Venus for this New Moon- it is a highly positive, loving and spiritual aspect, but they are in square to Black Moon Lilith in Taurus.  The hopes, visions and new dreams we are seeding now cannot be experienced without honoring the reality of how our disconnection from our bodies, one another and the earth are fueling them.  The rage, pain and mistreatment of the Earth, the species of this planet and the human body must be acknowledged in order to find new solutions.  In order to truly find gratitude for what it is we have with one another and in this life that is so very precious.

The more we become clear about how true wisdom is knowing what you don’t know, the easier it will be to step through the illusions of the past, gather the pearls of wisdom they produced and move into a New Age with values and philosophies intact, albeit malleable, that will pave the way for a world that we truly want to live in.  Let love guide you, let yourself dare to think differently than the status quo.  Your specific creative intelligence is being activated now, and it is a crucial part in this chapter of humanity. 

Use this New Moon is aligned very closely with the asteroid Pallas Athena- Goddess of wisdom and creative intelligence.  It is a huge opportunity to open to receive as well as set intentions around your highest and brightest hopes, dreams, visions, inspiration.  If something has been calling to you for some time and you just can’t seem to shake it- listen.  This is the moment that genius is born out of.  If you haven’t been clear enough to hear, this is an opportunity to open to receive the vision.

Suggested Ritual:

The following practice has transformed my life and is an offering as a ritual you can use on this New Moon and into the future:  Spend 30 minutes visualizing the version of yourself that you are committed to becoming.  Sit and visualize until you can see yourself clearly, how you look, feel, dress, your habits, diet, routine, schedule, partner, who you surround yourself with, where you live, how you spend your time etc.

Now bring that person into yourself and merge with them.  Feel all the feelings you feel as your highest self- your joy, gratitude, peace, contentment, excitement or whatever emotions you feel.

To really anchor in your Aquarian Vision Manifestation, write out your vision and read it out loud every morning followed by the 30-minute visualization daily.  You will be amazed at the changes that emerge.

By the dark of this New Moon, may we find the endurance to soften.  The courage to develop our gifts and visions.  The clarity to open to receive the channellings form the heavens and the grace to give the deepest thanks for the connection, togetherness and loved ones we have in our lives <3 This can change all too quickly in this time.

Blessings and Cosmic-Earthly Visions,

Capricorn New Moon and the Astrology of 2021- Root To Rise

Capricorn New Moon and the Astrology of 2021- Root To Rise

Artwork- Emily Kell

New Moon is January 12th/13th 9pmPT/12amET

The First New Moon of 2021 lies at 24’ Capricorn aligned very closely with Lord of Transformation, Pluto.  This is the fertile void of seeds cast for this entire year, and asks of us to dig into our depths if we want to rise to the highest heights.  If we are tired of the status quo and wish to challenge it the stars say “heck yeah”, and make sure the vision that you hold is aligned with truth, beauty and love.  Most of all, make sure that you are ready to accept the challenge of looking at and evolving yourself along with it so you can raise the collective frequency and attract others who are doing the same,  since this is how the Quantum laws are activating in this New Age. 

Whenever we speak of the Capricorn mysteries, we speak of the striving for excellence, for the peak of the mountain, for the highest level of integrity and wisdom we can stand.  We also must remember the watery depths from which this half sea dragon originates, in the softness of the opposite sign of Cancer which sings of tenderness, understanding and nurturing.  Both signs are about security, and interestingly The Sabian Symbol for the 24th degree of Capricorn is about the transcendent security of spiritual striving. 

The very nature of spiritual practice is paradoxical.  We cultivate discipline only that we may attain freedom, if we want to transcend our emotions, we must first dive into their deep waters, if we want to keep something, we must also be ready to let it go. 

The Capricorn myths display this through the symbolism of the serpent (pure, raw, unrefined life force energy) being cultivated by the goats climbing the mountain to attain spiritual enlightenment and share it with the world.  Saturn, ruler of Capricorn also rules the spine, a 33-step ladder to spiritual awakening through which we channel our kundalini energy, or upon which the serpent climbs. 

The Capricorn mysteries therefore are about the wisdom achieved by channeling our pure, spiritual life force energy through the structures created by this dimensional, material realm.  In ancient art and myth, the Capricorn and the goat are often depicted with the tree of life, or the world tree, which bridges the three dimensions and another symbol of climbing and the nature of truth.  We are being asked to reawaken to the power held within these mystery teachings.  That through our spiritual discipline, we achieve freedom. Once this is achieved, we bear the fruits of civilization, or at this time, a new civilization. 

Being as the sign of Capricorn is undergoing great transformation at this time, it is of value to look to where we can rewrite this story once again.  Saturn, the ruling planet of Capricorn is in the sign of Aquarius, saying it is time to evolve this archetype forward.  Let us reclaim once more the innovative, progressive and freedom oriented nature of the powerful discipline and self-mastery this sign carries.  Let us look at where it has become distorted as control structures, government and law without heart and universal truth.  If we climb the latter of matter with life force devoid of love and values of the heart, then what are we really gaining?

Capricorn is activated when we activate our inner wisdom. When we rise to the occasion and put ourselves aside for the greater good, in service to the collective. It is where we share the gifts we have acquired along our journey with the gentle firmness of a grandmother. It is the unshakable knowing of self wrought of deep introspection and committed action towards a goal. It is the honoring of our watery depths and our tenacity to keep climbing.

Perhaps most importantly, we are being asked to rewrite our story of self-mastery to include our humanness as well as our higher selves.  To take back the power of remembering our watery depths along with our sights set for new heights.  To honor our heart and our mind, our emotions and thoughts so that as we seek to achieve, we do so with wholeness.

Have we made some peace around the challenges we are facing as a species with both spiritual and practical understanding?  We are graduating out of an age where it was ok to blame such events as terrible acts of God or as some inevitable consequence based on scientific statistics.  From the failures and successes of both systems, the new vision is being born.  The Astrology asks for one with more heart, beauty and personal power at this time. May we embrace inspiration even this challenging time to continue to strive for higher ways of living in this beautiful world.

This Lunation and the astrology for all of 2021 screams for evolution, innovation and progress while simultaneously dropping into our bodies, humanness and pleasure where we can.  It begs that we not become complacent to the status quo or the way things have been done in the past, or rather, we may as well start embracing it since this year is sure to shake it up more.  It asks that we look deep within to see where we have become emotionally stuck and stagnant, rigid of mind or routine and revolutionize that sh88.  The Full Moon in Leo in two weeks promises powerful manifestations in real time, let’s get really clear on what we want that to look like.

Why?  Because in the darkest of moments, there is everything to gain.  In the face of the greatest tragedies comes the most beautiful sunrise you will ever see.  And so down and into our depth we must go if we want to grow.  Dare to ask yourself questions like- where have I been wrong in my convictions?  Is it ok for me to change?  Is it ok not to conform?  Is it ok to challenge the status quo? To challenge my own status quo? Is it ok to be optimistic?  What is the power of holding vision that is true?  Am I ready to step into this new age and be a contributing member of the future of creators and visionaries that will lead the way to something better?

Uranus stations direct two days after the New Moon and Mars is with him in square to Saturn, ruler of this New Moon.  This means it’s time to get ready to rock and roll in this new Aquarian Age.  Let’s get really ready to let go of the limiting beliefs that were keeping us stuck, to become like interstellar love-space beings care-taking this beautiful planet we call home who are truly ready to consider all available options for positive growth, change and balance.

Utilize this time to set goals and visions higher than ever before.  Maybe some old stuff is coming up that you thought was long gone, this is the time to look at it and let it go where you can. Call in the tribe that will support you in it.  Surrender into the shadow work that is calling for attention.  Along this mountain goats climb, perhaps success and struggle are not mutually exclusive.  But are each given meaning and purpose by the other. 

May we embrace the moment before us with bright eyes and restored faith in human ingenuity and the miracle of the human spirit.  May we embrace one another in our times of need.  May we make it ok for all humans to have whatever experience they are having, while continuing to strive towards living as our highest selves.  And may we heal and begin to vision what a true, whole and activated version of ourselves really looks like.  Aim high loved ones, shoot for the stars, but keep your feet firmly rooted in the Earth.

Blessings and Stardust,

Zoey Wind

Cancer Full Moon- Deep Water Magic Tuesday Dec 29 7:28pmPT/10:28pmET

Cancer Full Moon- Deep Water Magic Tuesday Dec 29 7:28pmPT/10:28pmET

Artwork: Autumn Sky Morrison

The Cancerain waters beckon us to their shore 

What we crave in this moment

Is the lush and lapping frothy milk

Of the Divine Mother’s breast

Where shall you drink it? 

Perhaps in some deep slumber,

Or upon a bed of moss,

Or inside a cave of crystals 

If you seek Her She will come

Open, tender and surrendered

 To the purity within your seeking heart

Leave Her offerings of shells, coins and incense

Fall to your knees and kiss Her feet 

She is the creator of all things,

And Her loving keeps all of creation in being 

Notice the perfect, round edges of Her form 

Notice how they repeat in your own body 

Love Her and love yourself,

 love yourself and you love Her 

Admire Her beauty, and you admire your own

Admire your own beauty, and you admire Hers 

She is the Multiversalizing principle,

and you are the Multiverse

Give Her the tenderness you would your own daughter,

 And give that tenderness to yourself 

Truth always goes in all directions

 And your consciousness is the director

Direct with love dear one,

 Direct in love as She has done.

This Full Moon is the culmination point of the total solar eclipse that opened a portal for a wide birth of the Age of Aquarius two weeks ago.  What is coming through for you?  What new has revealed itself from the shadows?  Hint- the answer lies in the mysterious caverns of the heart.

With Venus in aspect to the outer planets that were in Capricorn all last year in the new moon, she is now almost at the South Node where the eclipse took place last week.  She asks- how are you doing with holding space for the shadows that others around you are working through?  How about for yourself?

The holidaze were either spent away from family when we were used to being with them or with them after, and in the midst of the greatest collective trauma our generation has known.  Perhaps war, like older generations experienced in the 60’s and the potential for draft was a rival in the threat to personal freedom, but this pandemic is beyond what anyone has seen in at least a century.  Either way it is bound to have brought up emotions around what family means to us, those who are there for us no matter what, those who we call tribe.

Whatever emotions are coming up for you around this moon, use them as a compass towards your truth.  When you find it, visualize a thread running through you and your mother or father, and their mother and or father, and their mother’s father’s, father’s mother etc… See just how many generations of ancestors this patterning has been alive.  We each hold the key that unlocks generations of pain that can bring healing through our courage to look at it, feel it, thank it and let it go.

There is a huge call form the heavens to unite with our tribes right now.  Ancient allegiances still sound and those that need to break may be resounding.  In the light of this moon, may we surrender to what is, what we know to be true because we feel it in our hearts.  Express yourself in poetry, song, dance and creativity. 

This Moon will illuminate emotions around the collectivization of repressed personal expression, individuality and freedom in regards to our desire to be both strong for others and for ourselves.  Let’s remember to be patient, kind and caring for ourselves so that we may continue to show up in all the ways we desire.  The wise mother knows most deeply her own capacity and how to regenerate it, like the moon moves through all of her phases each moonth.

There are deep emotions in this moon.  Do not be afraid, they are here to allow you to move through the energy of the collective and be a bit reflective of what it all means to you.  If we are still rejecting others for having deep tenderness, it is time to look at where you deny yourself the tenderness you deserve.  If we are still criticizing others for being in fear, it is an opportunity to take a warrior’s spirit quest to Great Mountain and face your own, that you may carry codes of how to do so to those around you.

If we are so afraid we are paralyzed, it is time to pierce through the veil of the illusions of our own fear and face our true power.  For it is said that what we truly fear is that we are powerful beyond measure, and this is what the great alignment of Jupiter and Pluto all of 2020 was teaching us.  The shifting of that alignment to Jupiter-Saturn in Aquarius should feel like a graduation.  If it does not, this lunation is potent for tenderizing the heart and letting the light in.  For no matter how disempowering this year’s events may seem, we always have power over ourselves, and this is the beauty and the healing of Chiron in Aries squaring this Full Moon.

How do we take care of our community while maintaining boundaries and caring for ourselves in these unprecedented times?  These are the questions we should all be seeking to answer for ourselves, through the exploration of our deepest values and innovative thinking.  Bandwagon thinking is out of place in the Aquarian Age, and maybe even downright dangerous; for the shadow of Aquarius leads us down paths that separate us from our own humanity.

The new Uranian/Promethian/Lilith archetypal forces awakened this the past two weeks are pushing us to find new solutions to new and old problems by igniting our inner genius, revolutionary and rebel.  It asks that we stop rejecting the pain and trauma that is the result of the past 2,000 plus years in the process, but to face it with deep compassion and resolve to create true change in response to it.

Uranus in Taurus beckons us to become more human than ever and to deeply reside in the body and the heart.  While showing up for others is important, showing up for ourselves is just as important.  In fact, they are on a polar axis which is inseparable, and must be maintained at the fulcrum point of tenderness, care and responsibility. To be responsible is to be able to respond, and we maintain this ability through self-care.

But don’t be fooled, the mother archetype as expressed through the crab is fierce and protective of her tribe.  Most of 2020 we were working with Cancer/Capricorn eclipses beckoning us towards our true tribe.  In this sign, we learn the beauty of standing up for those we love, protecting the weak and being a voice for those whose voice has been pushed down or trodden over.  Compassion doesn’t always look one way, but it always comes from a heart of love.

May this Moon find you in the arms of those who can love you just as you need to be loved and are willing to listen to your hearts song.  May you offer the same gift to those around you, and most importantly, to yourself.  True warriors of love only seem to seem to stand alone on the mountain, those who know, know we are never truly alone, for the Divine Mother and Father are always just below our feet and just above our crowns.

Blessed Diving,
