Meditation

The goal of meditation is to quiet the mind and obtain a state of restfulness. There are many ways to meditate, but the result is always the same; finding a settled place of stillness. While meditation helps to obtain a state of relaxation, it does not bring about a lack of awareness. The most rewarding aspects of regular meditation practice is developing the skill to quiet the churning thoughts of a chattering and busy (monkey) mind.

The Gemini Full Moon – Shadow, Dreams, and Our Inner Voice

Welcome friends to the full moon, that we are celebrating in the sign of Gemini.  The moon is in a grand trine with Chiron and the North Node. This placement invites us to trust our inner voice and not be silent. We are asked to share our wisdom and truth with honesty, love and authenticity. The planet Jupiter is retrograde in the sign of Scorpio which means we might be facing some challenges from our inner demons, sometimes called our shadow.

The Fiery Energy of the Aries Full Moon

As the Sun enters the sign of Aries we welcome the fiery, initiating energy of Spring and the promise of new beginnings. This month we have several planets that converge to strengthen the initiating impulse, so we might be especially prone to impulsive actions and thoughtless activity.

Full Moon Meditation – Pisces

This month we celebrate the sun in the sign of Pisces and the moon in its opposite sign of Virgo. There are 5 planets in Pisces at the time of this full moon so we are flooded with this dreamy, mystical energy. Pisces is a water sign so we know that our emotional bodies will be highly sensitive this month. One of the most significant aspects of this full moon has to do with the planets Neptune and Saturn. Virgo is in opposition to Neptune and is trine to Saturn. What this asks of us is to access our unlimited imagination (Jupiter) and create the structure, (Saturn) to bring it into manifestation. Some good descriptive words for Pisces are: the dreamer, the mystic, the idealist, the martyr, the victim, the lost soul. At its highest expression Pisces can be a visionary, seeing the oneness in all things, and dreaming of how she can serve. But the lower octave of this energy can give her all in an attempt to save the world and thus martyr herself or begin to feel victimized by her sacrifices.

Full Moon Meditation – Paving the Way to a New Future

The mantram for Aquarius is “Water of life am I, poured forth for thirsty humanity.” Last month we climbed the mountain of Capricorn. We metaphorically let the energy of our spiritual aspiration carry us to the mountaintop where we were bathed in the light of transformation. Now, in Aquarius we are asked to descend from the mountain and pour forth the waters of light and life into the world, to share our gifts, to distribute and radiate our light.

Going Barefoot on the Earth ~ Papatuanuku

What is important is that we open the channel to the Divine/God/ IO, and that we work hard to both enlarge and keep open that channel. One way of doing that is through Nature, and our connection to the planet. We are a part of the planet, made from and fed by it. In time, each of us will return to it and be reabsorbed by it. Our physical self will no longer exist, and yet it will have become a part of the planet, as it was before it appeared. In so doing we will be connected to all those who have passed and all those yet to be formed from it. There is no physical separation, either past, present, or future. We arise from our mother, the earth, walk upon and with her, and then return to be with and within her once more....read more.
