This evening Venus moves into Sagittarius, along with some other potent planetary alignments. This conscious dreaming is calling forth highly evolved partnerships. It is time for us to embrace our energy in the stillness, to be deeply honouring of the Great Mother as the Black Moon resonates her ancient wisdom in Capricorn. At the same time, we are being called to surrender to her vulnerabilities and be empowered through the softness that radiates from her heart-space. It is the weaving of all into a unified heart-space.
How best do we align with expressing these astrological energies depends on our individual lines of self-enquiry and state of grace.
For some it is vitally important to engage in the wild dance of Kali, for She is the creation of nature ~ The Dark Mother, She of the Deep. For her to do this She must be reassured and trust the vessel holding this sacred rite for the movement of creation, preservation and destruction. These are the ingredients for the cosmic blend of the Beloved. Initiation and assertion are activated through our inner animus. Likewise, our inner anima resides in the gentle recess of our hearts. We have both aspects within and these qualities need to be nurtured and revered. Balance and unification will then bring forth healing which is reflected through inter-personal relationships.
During patriarchal history, humankind has been subjected to the dominator race and near eradication of the Sacred Feminine. The Great Mother is like the wild tigress that has been oppressed through the shackling and ‘domestication’ of her instinctive nature. Mother Earth has been continually raped to the detriment of all, which is felt within the psyche of humanity. We have danced away from each other through this separation and carry the wounding within our collective memories.
We need to be gentle with each other, for this will take time to heal and a new inclusive connection is essential for harmonious existence. This reconnection allows us to vision new ways of Being. This dreaming is gifted to us all to raise the consciousness of humanity. We need to understand that the conventional roles of how we have previously been interacting are changing. We need to educate ourselves on a more universal level. First and foremost, we need to be responsible for our own journey to wholeness through connecting with all aspects of our Inner Beloved. This requires great courage to step beyond our limitations and embrace our ecstatic Self.
A beautiful rite to honour the Inner Beloved is by reflecting on the Full Moon energies. It is a time to celebrate the life force of the Sun (creative essence) and the receptive nature of the Moon (expressive & nurturing). The Full Moon occurs every 29 ½ days and celebrates illumination. It is when the sun and the moon are dancing opposite each other in balance and harmony across the arc of the sky.
Use your intention to nurture the relationship between yourself and your Inner Beloved, however you feel you would like to express this for yourself. Offer this ritual as a gift for the evolution of humanity, as well as for personal benefits.
Close your eyes and focus on the breath. Call forth the elements and acknowledge them individually to offer the experiences and insights you need for your Divine Union.
Earth – body / sensuality / values
Water – emotions / subconscious
Fire – passion / creativity / intuition
Air – breath / communication
Spirit – cosmic connection
If you have a partner spend time in heart-felt communication. This is perfect leading into the Full Moon in Gemini in the early hours of Monday morning here in the Southern Hemisphere. Allow some time over the week to focus on each other. Again, close your eyes and focus on the breath before calling in the elements. Allow your inspired ideas to flow through the heart.
Another valuable ritual is to have a special place in nature that becomes your Beloved for merging with your higher consciousness. For many years I experienced an alchemical fusion with a sacred mountain where I live. This dedicated place holds healthy and safe energy for me. By connecting with this landscape it offered me a greater depth of understanding about the true unity of myself by releasing my shadow projections and attachments to the past. By nurturing my relationship with nature in this divine place, I became more aware of the universal tantric energies and experienced a deep transformation. I was instructed in a different way of receiving and giving love-wisdom. The sensory touch and erotic delight of the senses with the transcendental aspect of human love to spiritual. Explore where you live and find a place that holds similar energy for you through the ley lines. The land will love you for this and open to receive you in this holy quest “for that which you seek if you do not find it within, you will never find it without.”
Remember in these conscious times, to listen with your heart and feel strength in your vulnerabilities. Keep walking the path in sacred prayer for Earth Mother and beyond. For we are all One in this Divine Union.
