New Moon in Taurus, Mercury Retrograde in Gemini ~ Reclaiming the Divine Feminine & More

Hello bright stars!

Earthy, sensual New Moon in Taurus today, conjunct fixed star Algol, & Mercury stations retrograde to transit Gemini through June… https://instagram.com/p/20xtXkq0ky/

ImageJ=1.43u

Plant seeds of intention today/tomorrow to grow into bloom by the full moon (short term) and over next 6 months (long term)…since it is also Mercury retrograde, though, REflect upon & REview your words carefully…they have power!  Mercury retrograde is a great time to go back & do something you wanted to do before (or from your past) and also anything beginning with “RE” ~ REnew, REhearse, REvisit, REconnect,REdesign & more…especially in friendships, communications, all things ruled by Gemini….also, REthink the myth of Medusa, the snake goddess (start here: http://www.covenofthegoddess.com/goddessmedusa.htm) and REconsider what you may fear both in sexuality and in your temple, as this new moon is REvealing new ways to think about this classic maligned Goddess, rising feminine kundalini wisdom, sacred sexuality and more…(Algol is located in constellation Perseus, in the center of Medusa’s forehead, and could also be considered a third eye, or intuitive knowledge, cut off by the patriarchy)

Medusa (Dark Moon, Crone, Snake Goddess) was one of three Goddesses divine to the Libyan Amazons known, along with Athena (New Moon, Virgin, Warrior Maiden) and Metis (Full Moon, Mother, Sea Goddess), and in ancient Libyan myths, this Triple Lunar Goddess rose from the water as Anatha.

“Serpent-haired Medusa ruled over the regenerative mysteries of sex and death, and protected these magical rites from being discovered and abused by the uninitiated. As the third, crone/destroyer aspect of the lunar triad, Medusa’s message was one of wisdom, and it concerned the inevitability of death. AS an Ocean Goddess of the West She guarded the gateway of death and granted safe passing to all souls entering the oceanic entrance to the underworld.”

Hawk Magic ~ The Messenger ~

Last night, a hawk swooped into the tree above my house, landing on a large branch, with another smaller bird clutched between its talons. Hawk is one of my three main bird totems, otherwise known as medicine animals, the other two being Crow/Raven & Hummingbird, so I was not surprised to see her.

Especially since, after meditating on Eagle totem at New Moon, I called out to Hawk just afterwards, at the Crescent Moon, with these images & words 01_10_2007_0588714001191230042_susan_seddon_bouletposterlux-boulet_susan_seddon-kb_ssb_unelanuhiSusanSeddonBouletVisioning“Thank you, Eagle. Now calling another of my core totems ~ HAWK ~ going to need this powerful medicine for the work ahead. These Susan Seddon-boulet images invoke the energy required at present ~ may it be so. ‘Hawk is the messenger of the spirit world, uses the power of FOCUS, takes the LEAD when the time is right, POWER to see, clear VISION, strong connection with SPIRIT, increased spiritual AWARENESS, keen observation then ACTION at right time.’

20140317_185127 Hawk clearly answered the call.  

However, what was unusual is that another of my friends who lives in the neighborhood had just shared a story with me yesterday morning of a hawk landing on a branch outside HER window, grabbing a mourning dove in its talons, then taking off into the sky.  This hawk seemed to have a pigeon as its prey as well, also a member of the Dove family, so I paid closer attention. 

And yesterday morning, after hearing her story, I called out to Dove “thank you, Hawk medicine, energy has been strong & you have served your purpose up until this Full Moon. Your energy released, now calling in Dove ~ birdgoddessbringer of peace & love, understanding of gentleness, spirit messenger, communication between the two worlds, maternity, femininity, prophecy. Myths & legends surrounding dove link it with many goddesses; renowned as the embodiment of maternal instinct. Dove’s brood consists of 2 eggs. 2 is a symbol of creative & feminine energies. Home & family are very dear/meaningful to those with this bird & life lessons are strongest” I went to sleep hoping to understand more about this arrival.  Was there war and peace symbology happening here?  <<Popularly, “hawks” are those who advocate an aggressive foreign policy based on strong military power. “Doves” try to resolve international conflicts without the threat of force.>> dictionary.reference.com  Did this mean that peace was being sacrificed?  I went to sleep with Hawk medicine card beneath my pillow.

I awoke still curious, as dreams did not reveal any further meaning. However, the hawk was still in the tree outside my house this morning when I went to bike with my daughter to school. She seemed to be waiting for me. So, since Hawk is the Messenger of the Spirit World ~ I looked up and asked her what her message was. She cried out, then seemed to look down, where feathers from her conquest (the Dove) were scattered all over the ground.  20140318_085923Suddenly reminded of when a cat brings you a mouse as a gift, I realized – she literally brought me what I asked for, when I called for Dove energy yesterday morning.  She showed the dualistic connection between my friend Lucha who lived several blocks away. She reminded me (this was the same day of the small yet close LA earthquake in Westwood) of the raw power and beauty of nature – and the importance of both nurturing and protecting gifts. She showed me – again – that the universe is listening, carefully. Words are power.  Thoughts become things.

I paused and honored the spirit of the Dove who served as a symbolic sacrifice (sustenance and nourishment for the Hawk).  I thanked the Hawk for listening, for coming, for bringing her gift. I then carefully gathered the largest dove feathers to turn them into a smudge wand for peace & sang these words to move from symbolism to reality, (be REALLY specific with the universe when asking for things):

I call for wisdom, I ask for peace,

I summon healing of all grief,

I call for gentle justice, love,

and inspiration from above.

Thank you, Spirits of the Wind.

Thank you, Messengers of Air.

Thank you for your gifts and teachings.

Thank you for the insights shared.

Namaste ~

GREAT MARCH FOR CLIMATE ACTION ~ SAT MAR 1, 2014

FLIERS: Climate March Flier_English And Spanish

The Great March for Climate Action

Join the largest coast-to-coast climate march in American history!

KICKOFF, RALLY, & MARCH

SATURDAY, MARCH 1ST

 image

CLIMATE CHANGE IS PERSONAL!

On Saturday, March 1, at 9:00 a.m. (8:30 a.m. press briefing), join the SoCal Climate Action Coalition 350 and its regional partners to help kick off the Great March for Climate Action. Thousands are projected to join the mobilized mass movement starting in the Port of Los Angeles, one of the most fossil-fuel polluted communities in the country, now undergoing fresh threats from tar sands shipping and refining as well as a regional uptick in hydraulic fracturing.  Marchers will head toward downtown LA-USC Exposition Park area for the Closing Ceremony, with hundreds continuing 3,000 miles to Washington D.C. to deliver the message that we need immediate legislative and executive action to solve the climate crisis.

We march to demand an economy that prioritizes energy efficiency, conservation and clean renewables, one that institutes rising fees on all use of dirty fuels to offset the significant costs incurred to our health, our climate, and our ecosystems. We march to demand a ban on fracking, elimination of tar sands, a rejection of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, all with an emphasis on environmental justice and equal protection for communities of color, working class, and indigenous.

EVENT DETAILS

When: Saturday, March 1st

Rally Location: Wilmington Waterfront Park, Wilmington, CA (Los Angeles Harbor — “C” Street)

March A Little Or A Lot – Feel free to march only a little, meet us along the route, or join us for the closing ceremony. The full route is 17.4 miles.
