May we walk our paths of high holy truth as that is what is needed now more than ever. And so it is..

Ra Ma:

Welcome, welcome. Welcome back to a another episode of Stars stones and stories. This is episode 34. And I want to dive in immediately speaking a little bit about this sacred numerology as we are moving faster at the speed of light. As our lives are shifting rapidly before our very eyes, it is light and sound numbers. These are the truth of time and space. And numbers have codes of information layers upon layers of information, they are a universal language. Just as we could say astrology is the language of the Aquarian Age. And that is why I am so devoted to delivering these podcasts to you and being on this journey of conscious evolution alongside you. So as we look to the number three, it is all about expression and sensitivity. How we choose to express ourselves and the subtleness with which we can do so versus the more abruptness. Now we know in many different wisdom traditions, three is about light. It is about a Holy Trinity, as we can see from the sacred feminine and the sacred masculine and the holy child. And also in goddess mythology, cosmology. We have maiden, mother and crone and this is about harmony, action, the perfect love, the tenderness, the soul force. In the Tarot, three is connected to the Empress representing plenty and prosperity and fruitfulness to magic.

Ra Ma:

Whereas four is a number of stability and process. How do we build with consciousness? How do we create solid foundations? How do we show up responsibly practically, building with, with a sense of being calm, being at ease, having peace, but yet also being determined to build with security. And so as we add, three and four together in celebration of Episode 34, we come to seven. Seven is a number of trust and openness, a journey, a willingness to be vulnerable, and stand in one's truth. And I wanted to really honor these numbers, there's much more I could say. This is very personal for me, as my own personal numerology is a 34, 7. And I have been consciously working with these codes of three and four and seven for over 20 years of my life, really taking that and drinking and the nectar of these numbers. We are in such a turbulent time, in 2021.

Ra Ma:

I'm recording this episode for you on August 15. I have a prayer an intention to deliver these podcasts. every other Friday in celebration of Friday's Venus days. As I myself, my chart is ruled, guided by Venus. And so much of my work is in devotion to this concept of Venus being the elder sister of Earth, and really thinking deeply about what we are cultivating here on Earth, the culture we're building. And my way of contributing consciously to this is through these offerings of my podcast, my weekly Venusian love notes, my readings, the pilgrimages I facilitate, as well as the other group spaces that are created through women's circles and local events and online teachings. And in that, I've found this year to be particularly gnarly. And at times, even though I am so devoted to being consistent and stable, really honoring that for within the 34, seven, there are times where we we need to be like bamboo and bend a little. And so my intention was to deliver this podcast to you on Friday, the 13th that Venus day. And as I am human, like you all are, I feel like we got tossed into a blender. And in July, the speed got turned on low. And in August, it got turned up to high. So here I am recording this a couple days later than I intended to. And I say this, I share this process with you because maybe there are places and spaces where you put a lot of pressure on yourself to deliver certain things by a certain deadline. And what we are currently going through collectively, ancestrally, personally, is profound. We are in our uncharted territory, uncharted waters, we're in spaces and places where humanity has never been on Earth. And so please take good care of yourselves. Take exceptional care of your nervous system. If you feel like you need the rest, take the rest. Drink plenty of water. Take baths, take showers, walk in nature. Do the things that really nurture your soul. Eat good food, hug and love up on the ones that are dear to your heart, speak your truth to people. Be gracious, be compassionate, be kind. This is a time where really, truly, we cannot take anything for granted right now, anything can shift in a split second. Around the world, there is much upheaval. I was just briefly looking at some recent news before recording this. And there's just been a massive earthquake in Haiti. And the women of Afghanistan are really struggling right now. And we know people are struggling all over the earth right now. I was recently traveling this past week in Chicago, and it was my first time in a truly urban environment since the pandemic. And I am very sensitive, as I'm sure many of you listening are. And it was immense, it was immense to be in such a large urban environment. I can feel collective energy from anywhere on the planet. And I say that because it's true that it's just how I'm attuned. But to be immersed in an urban environment and to feel the millions of people around me and the suffering was quite different than where I live in the Appalachian Mountains.

Ra Ma:

And there were many, many, many tears, there was much grief that needed to move through my body. And collectively, there's a lot of grief. And there's a lot of people who are suppressing their grief. So I speak to this because we're in a time where it's really necessary, to make time to grieve, to explore what has been lost in a way of letting it move through your body and out of your body, to clear your channel. Our bodies are so powerful, we are so beautiful and Crystaline. And when we suppress our feelings and our intuition, and our higher guidance and wisdom, and when we disassociate and we just set and we scroll, and we scroll, and we scroll on whatever device it may be. That has an accumulation over time and space, and it will not go down well. And this is how accidents and things happen. With these squares that we're hanging out in this year, particularly the Uranus in Taurus and the Saturn in Aquarius square. But we also have Pluto in Capricorn and Eris in Aries. These squares can be quite reckless, if we're not paying attention. So now is the time to really slow down, slow down your nervous system, slow down your body, slow down your life in whatever ways you're able to and get really solidified into the basics. The greatest basic being seen well well hydrated and well nourished, supplementing with the things that really bring you joy, and taking really good care of your nervous system with a daily devotional practice. So we're gonna go on a journey here in this episode, and I know some of you participated in my Instagram giveaway. And then I just sort of fell off because I've been dealing with some unexpected death and different layers of grief that I've needed to process. So I thought I was coming back on to Instagram on the daily again and then really needed to pull back into my own self. And I will be returning soon and I will announce the winner and I will be showing up more consistently again. However it'll be Probably be closer to the Aquarius Full Moon. So thank you for your patience and stay tuned there. As many of you know, I believe that podcast is a form of collaboration and your listener as the experience matters so much to me.

Ra Ma:

I want to just speak very briefly about a pilgrimage I'm offering this December 3 through 22nd in Egypt, also known as Kemet. And if you're called to pilgrim to Egypt, if you've been feeling the call the pole, the gravitational force, the magnetic synergy, I invite you to email support@Earthseedtemplearts.com for the full invitation. We will be journey this third through 22nd December on living legacy, rematrixing the codes of life. And if you have a desire to go to Egypt, I would just say to you right now, do not take anything for granted. Nothing. So if you're feeling the call to Pilgrim, I urge you to do it. Where in such a wild time that it is about seizing the moment, seizing the day. And I guarantee you upon your commitment to this pilgrimage, the gates will open for you and you will be able to trust the process and you will be well taken care of each step of the way. That is absolutely 100% True. And we're going to visit some of the most amazing places. We're going to open up in Luxor on the Sagittarius total solar eclipse in one of my favorite temples. And from there we'll explore the beautiful temples and tombs around Luxor. We will fly up north and then travel by car to Siwa, which is a Desert Oasis near the border of Libya and such a magical space, there will be deep restoration there. There will be a lot of time for meditation, for deep practice, for swimming and different kinds of waters ranging from the most pure salt water to deserts, hotspring waters to Cleopatra's spring, just really phenomenal spaces that are going to help you do this rematrixing process that is in my opinion so key in these times. And then from there, we're going to travel back to the Giza area and go to many different pyramids, we'll travel into the Al-Fayoum desert, which has the beautiful whale bones. Some of you have heard me speak about over 45 million years old. I mean, this is ancient ancient land. And this pilgrimage is an opportunity to embody the art of Hieros Gamos the sacred unification of the Divine Feminine frequency within and the divine masculine frequency within so we're talking about really, really sinking in to this inner mystical marriage that is available for each one of us in this incarnation.

Ra Ma:

Why astrology, the rhythms of the planets, the asteroids, the stars, the centaurs, and other astronomical bodies. Each one of them creates a wave of reverberation. Just as when the mallet touches the gong, there is a reverberation of sound, science of sound healing of frequency. And this is the process the practice of living. We are feeling these reverberations that resound through time and space, these ripples affect our daily lives, personally, and collectively. These Saturn Uranus Square that we've been feeling, it was exact, the first square in February, the second square in June. And we've just been kind of hanging out in it in July and August, and also Eris and Pluto are squaring.

Ra Ma:

And Saturn is all about how we limit and we define. Saturn is currently in Aquarius retrograde, and really asking us to look at technology. How do we utilize technology in a good way that is in service to humanity? What are the dark sides of the Aquarian Age of technology, who has the rights to our data, who has the rights to all of our personal information, and habits. These are topics that are very important. There are banks, pools that collect all of our data, and sift through them and can very easily track our habits. What makes me unique versus you versus your sister or your brother or your mother. This research is being done on each one of us. And the greater question is, is this ethical? And who gets to keep the research? And what does this mean for maybe not your eye, but for our children's children. Because they're going to be born in a world where all they know is higher forms of technology. Whereas for myself, I grew up with very clunky computers before there was even a world wide web as we know it today. And Uranus in Taurus is instead of going out into that technology space, is really asking us to bring our psyche and our attention or awareness to Earth, Mother Earth. And with this we're making great changes leaps and bounds. But there's a lot of shocking energy that's been moved. And literally, as I was saying there was an earthquake in Haiti and over 200 have already died from this. And this is an exact example of Uranian energy and Taurus because it can bring shocks and surprises literally through Mother Earth herself. This is why when we have a square... squares are about tension, it's a face off, but they're ultimately an opportunity for great growth. Quite often, in life we grow the most when we're in an experience of tension. If things feel easeful, we're less likely to make changes but when they feel uncomfortable, we have the incentive to move forward to make change to innovate. And so, this Saturn Uranus Square, they're both in fixed signs. The fixed signs are very stable, they don't like to change. So it also brings in more intensity. It brings in more of that sensation of turbulence of being in a high speed blender, as I'm sure many of us have been sensing over the past couple of months. And then, on top of that, we have the Pluto Eris square, both happening in cardinal signs. Cardinal signs really like to take initiative and take action. And so that square also brings in some deep intensity because they can be very action oriented, or also there can be a strong standoff sensation. Pluto, as we know, has been in Capricorn since 2008, and is coming up to the 25th degree. Here in the United States, we're coming closer and closer to our collective Pluto return, which is likely to be a deep process of dissolving and disillusionment.

Ra Ma:

And Pluto in Capricorn is wanting to dismantle these old patriarchal systems. However, there can be a lot of resistance to this as whatever powers that be forces that are that wish to hold on to their structures of power and authority that they've had for hundreds of years, 1000s of years, they're not going to just relinquish that control. So this brings in greater agitation. And with that, we have the asteroid goddess Eris. And we know her as a goddess of discord of disruption. In many ways we could say, her unveil moment is what started the Trojan War. And so Eris in Aries in this archetype of the great pioneer, and the warrior has no problems causing chaos, if it means truth. And transformation will come to the surface. So these are mighty times, they're powerful. And I personally believe understanding, knowing the astrology really can assist our psyches, in knowing how to settle into these times how to be prepared, how to understand what is happening, not only collectively but personally for each one of us. Because right now, where the late degrees of Capricorn and Aries are in your chart, you're getting that square between Eris and Pluto. And where the mid degrees of Taurus and Aquarius are, you receiving that square as well. So understanding this will assist you. And as I mentioned, I was recently traveling in Chicago, and I was feeling that collective grief because it was my first time in this urban environment. And also, I got stuck there because there was a massive lightning storm that was moving through the Midwest, and then as it moved through and move south, so it was affecting the entire route that I was going to be flying home. And this lightning storm, and other storms that spun off of it were happening for a number of days. And as we think of lightning and earthquakes, these are two very Uranian and Taurus moments. Right. So even though it was quite inconvenient for me to have to navigate how it was going to get home and what the solutions would be, which is part of why this podcast is being delivered to you a couple days later than intended. I also could understand from a higher level. And I didn't get upset about why is this happening to me. I didn't take this energy personally because none of it is personal. I mean, yes, it's deeply personal because it's affecting my life and my relationships and my work. However, it's happening to the collective. We're going through a cultural renaissance, and part of a renaissance is a massive egoic death of the cultures that have prevailed, that shall no longer prevail. And to be living in these times is

Ra Ma:

next level, it requires each one of us to show up as these courageous spiritual warriors, it requires each one of us to show up in our greatest strength, taking impeccable care of ourselves and our communities. And also being willing to dissolve, to dissolve our own places and spaces of bondage to dissolve our assumptions, what we've taken for granted, because what we may have assumed will always be with us, could be taken away before our very eyes at any given moment. And as there are these massive amounts of collective grief that still need to be processed, there are startling losses that people are experiencing. There are supply issues that are happening economically. And there are shifts in weather, and our natural resources. And for many, this is quite terrifying. For some, they will go into a mentality of hoarding and locking themselves away. And what I would encourage you to do is to anchor into your practices, and to take really good care of yourself, and to build your communities, build your bridges, know who your allies are. And form those bonds make them even stronger than they've been strengthen these bonds in your local communities. With people you can connect with face to face. Yes, social media is beautiful, and a great way to connect. And these days, it is a battlefield. And you have to remember that you do not own any of your data in these spaces. So if you're going to use technology, build new systems focus in other spaces, where you own your data, and your privacy. Because these things matter so much. Many of us have come into this world wide web, with eyes just kind of open, but making a lot of assumptions that the people who are hosting these spaces, care about us and care about our families. And the bottom line is and it's what it always has been its profit and its control. So these disruptions with Uranus in Taurus and Saturn in Aquarius and Pluto in Capricorn and Eris in Aries are coming through to shake us awake in all the ways. The only way out is through deep and within.

Ra Ma:

So may you stay true to yourself. May you follow your own inner compass, again, do your daily practice to keep your compass attuned to this is non negotiable. Your daily practice can be three minutes of meditation. It can be three minutes of cat cow. It can be a beautiful walk in nature. It can be riding a bike, it can be so many things. Just do your practice. Allow the relationships that no longer serve you to fall away, bow to them in grace and compassion. Avoid the drama and the trauma timelines as they will not assist you in persevering these times. Focus on your own inner work as that is the key to your greatest illumination. This is a time of powerful tight rope walking.

Ra Ma:

And we are coming out of this Lions Gate Leo New Moon. We are still in a time of seeding and manifesting and as heavy as things feel on the earth plane. We have to remember, each one of us is connected to the stars to the cosmos. We are infinite. We are intergalactic, and we have the ability to harness the cosmic frequencies to support us Here and now on the earth plane. This is why daily practice is so important. And this Lionsgate Leo New Moon was a true renewal of vows and ability to tune into your own unique soul's purpose, to be Passion Driven, to really be your own beloved.

Ra Ma:

And our next major astrological phenomena of 2021 is Uranus in Taurus shifting retrograde. So this happens on Thursday, August 19. At 9:41pm That's Eastern Time. At 14 degrees 47 arc minutes Taurus. Uranus in Taurus will be retrograde until about January 22 of 2022. So Uranus in Taurus was retrograde last summer around this time from August until January. And it's the same this year. Now I've already spoken a little bit about Uranus in Taurus. I want to go a little deeper with you. For some of you it'll be a refresh, but hey, this is astrology. We work in layers. It's so good to always come back to basic concepts.

Ra Ma:

When we think of Uraniun Energy, Uranus is an outer planet. It's a transpersonal planet. It's a planet that I like to say it it stamps us generationally, it gives us a generational signature around the age of 40, 41, 42. We go through our Uranus opposition and it's a very powerful midlife activation point. Many of you know about the Saturn Return. The Saturn Return, the first one, adults us, seasons us into adulthood. However, after that, we have a series of midlife activation points that are extremely important and the Uranus opposition is one of those Uranian cycles in general are about 84 years and we know of Uranus in contemporary astrology it is ruling the planet or sorry, the zodiacal sign of Aquarius. So we can say Uranus is really in the Aquarian Age. It is the key to our illumination of our super intuitive and our genius potential. It is a higher octave of Mercury. Mercury is all about logic and reasoning and how we speak and think and share information and ideas how we take in information. And I always love to trace Mercury back to Hermes and trace Hermes back to Thoth to Tahuti. From the Egyptian cosmology, we know of Tahuti as the creator of astronomy and astrology, and the world of symbols, language. And so as we can say Mercury is ruling the the lower octave the day to day thinking and speaking and how we communicate. The Uranian energy has more breath. It's about change and freedom, rebellion, revolution and how this gets communicated. It is about the eccentric, the non traditional, the avant garde. So where Uranus lives in our charts is where we wish to be unique and express our capacity for independence.

Ra Ma:

Physiologically, Uranus rules the electrical impulses that travel through our nervous systems. And that's why I have been speaking all year in these podcasts. Please take good care of your nervous systems. It's very important. And Uranus entered Taurus briefly and 2018 then retrograded back into Aries and then settled into Taurus into in 2019. So we've been traveling with Uranus and Taurus since the spring of 2019. This is a slower moving planet. And this Taurean energy, it's earth energy. It's fixed. So it's very stable, sometimes very stubborn. It is all about the material earthy realm. And how do we connect deeper with the senses, our sense of touch and taste and sight and smell? Very tactile. And how do we do this all in celebration of pleasure? Taurus is ruled by Venus and has a frequency of I have what do you hold on to, what do you possess? Taurus energy is about being slow and steady determined. The Tauruses are the earth lovers, the farmers, the chefs, the musicians, the artists, the deeply sensual people, they can also be very drawn to the financial realm. This is energy that is patient, that will stay the course. However, in its shadow energy, it can be overly focused on the material. It can be possessive, too stubborn, too habitual, too entitled, lazy, overindulgence. And with Uranus in Taurus, it is like this. It's very unpredictable, and it is deeply earth shattering when it needs to be. So when a planet goes retrograde, it gives an opportunity for greater reflection. It brings this internal process and an ability for major collective shifting and also personal shifting. We know in general that Uranian Energy brings in big changes. It's abrupt. It's out of the box, it's surprise, it lets us remember that nothing is guaranteed in life. Do not take anything for granted. Seize the moment, seize the day, that our autonomy is key that our sovereignty is everything. And also, the Uranian energy assists us in overcoming obstacles in calling in that highest genius potential, the concepts that are just so out of the box. And I feel overall that Uranus in Taurus is an opportunity for humanity to anchor into Mother Earth like never before coming back to our ecological sensibilities, honoring the elements, really celebrating the seasons, celebrating the sun, and the moon, and the cycles. And this is something that I would love to share with you. If you're interested in my earth seed fall journey. We're going to begin at the end of September, we will meet Tuesday evenings, that's Eastern time. And I will have information about it on my website, and in my Venusian love notes. So please stay tuned. And I hope you'll join us because it's an opportunity to really anchor into the earth through practices and principles that are going to help you navigate these times. So Uranus also has this ability to really change the arrangement or positions of affairs, particularly financial political,

Ra Ma:

affecting our supply chains. And this can be exhilarating and amazing for some and for others. It is earth shattering and it is unnerving. It is shocking. So these are times where we are definitely seeing major shifts around food, how food is shipped around the planet around money. We're seeing paper money, you know start to fade away more cryptocurrency is coming online. We're seeing global markets shift. We're seeing politics shift. Ultimately we are being led to a new level of being a collective and personal liberation is happening that is freeing us from our former ways our habitual states of mind. So that we can draw in new waves of thought patterns. So as Uranus and Taurus goes retrograde it is at 15 degrees Taurus. And as it's going retrograde, it is trying Mercury and Mars and Virgo. And I think this is really interesting because we know Mercury is the lower octave. Uranus is the higher octave so there's this relationship between the two. There's a beautiful Trine happening, which means lots of free flowing, earthy gifts to be received prosperity as possible. It is an opportunity with this retrograde to really reflect on And what are your values around how you live your life, how you connect to the earth? Are your values congruent with your day to day rhythms and routines. If they're not, now is the time to own it and to make the necessary shifts to have the courage to make the changes.

Ra Ma:

Now the Sabian symbol of 15 degrees Taurus is all about the courage that is needed to meet the crisis precipitated by social ambition. As you face the storm, you have the ability to attain a higher consciousness. We are currently in a war of consciousness right here, right now. The truth is, on one level, the war has already been won. However, do you believe that? Do you know that in your bones, will you live from that place and space in these times? There's also a connection to how one is mourning death. How we are here seeking to send ourselves at a very intensive level, cracking through collective and ancestral codes to embrace the world beyond death. And that is the star sparks frequency. His best friend sings a song at his funeral for 15 degrees Taurus. And it's so aligned for me on such a deep personal level, but also what I'm sensing collectively as well. What do we use as a bomb in these times, gratitude, practice prayer, meditation, nature, love, compassion.

Ra Ma:

On Sunday, August 22, we are greeted with a blue moon and Aquarius Blue Moon, it is our second full moon in Aquarius of 2021. And the full moon is exact at 8:01am Eastern Daylight Time. And with this lunation we have the moon and Aquarius, at 29 degrees 36 arc minutes, and the sun is at 29 degrees 36 arc minutes. So the moon and the sun are meeting up at the final degree of this Aquarius Leo access. Whereas in July that full moon met up at the first degree. And so it's a beginning and an end. And in the midst of that was this potent Lionsgate portal that we're still feeling the reverberations from that was so mighty, so fierce, and it is absolutely sending tidal waves of transformation and rejuvenation, and deep, deep, deep ancestral healing and clearing into our lives. And a reconfiguration of many, many different timelines are happening here and now. So this is a very important lunation that's coming up. Now as we think of full moons, they are the time when the moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise and is visible throughout the entire night sky. It is a time where we could say of celebration, culmination, achievement of our outward expression where we can really reap the harvest and the abundance. And there's this merging of spirit and matter. This is about culmination, illumination, fulfillment. And as the moon opposes the sun, there is a completion from the first half of the lunation cycle, in the sense of the seeds that were cast with the new moon are coming to fruition. So it is an opportunity to learn and to realize and to also integrate the polarities. And there's a very important integration of polarities happening right now. As this is the second Aquarius moon with the sun in Leo of 2021. And we had that July full moon right After. On July 13, we had Venus and Mars meet up in Leo. And then about nine days later we had Mary Magdalene feast day and the following day was that Aquarius Full Moon. And then we traversed through the Lionsgate portal, which we're still in as I'm recording this. And this Venus and Mars conjunction the sacred marriage this Hieros Gamos. I offered a in depth masterclass on this which is still available to view if you want to download the content. You can find that on my website Earthseedtemplearts.com. However, this Venus Mars marriage in Leo was a culmination a closing out of a cycle that began in 2015. And with that, we will begin a new Venus Mars cycle and that will be in February of 2024 and Aquarius. So, there is a very important signature happening right now, between this Leo in Aquarius access. And as we know of Leo, it is a fire sign, it is fixed, who is the archetype of the King, the Queen, the radiant one, the shining one, the actor, the performer. It is passionate, fiery spirit, that is very dedicated, devoted to expressing the creative self to expanding from the heart center, seeking to be appreciated by others. Leo is a deeply loving sign that brings in generosity, vitality, fun, loving, noble, natured affection.

Ra Ma:

And this sign at times, can be narcissistic, like the eternal child, can be vain, can need too much attention, may come across as snobby or overly dramatic or a refusal to follow others, even arrogance. However, a Leo has the ability to be a true teacher, an embodied teacher in this lifetime, if they really work on developing their leadership skills. And this Leo frequency is ruled by the Sun radiating the power and the force of the will. Meanwhile, across the Zodiacal access, we have Aquarius as the water bearer. Yet this is an Air sign. It is about being egalitarian, eccentric, the cosmic visionary from the future, very progressive. Aquarius has a need for innovation for original thought to create social change. And this is the frequency of I am different. It is all about reformation. As being avant garde, the rebel, the inventor, the genius, the humanitarian outlaw, the weirdo. And as Aquarians are deeply concerned with the earth community, they at times can be rebellious for rebellion sake. So being overly rebellious or not conforming when it is needed, being too detached or erratic or unpredictable. And so as we're looking at this polarity between the Leo Aquarius access, this is about our journey from personal love to impersonal love, from romance to agave, from passion to detachment, from monarchy to democracy, from the actor to the audience, from the lion to the unicorn. And, as mentioned, this moon in Aquarius at 29 degrees 37 arc minutes is also directly conjunct the asteroid lug.

Ra Ma:

Now, Lughnasadh is the season that we're currently in. It is a time of harvest, connected to Lamass. And lug is the God that the season is dedicated to. So there's this really beautiful synchronicity. Meeting up with this Aquarius Full Moon this blue moon and lug is portrayed as a Where a king, a master, a craftsman and a savior. He is associated with many skills and mastery and multiple disciplines including the arts. He was also associated with oaths, truth law, and therefore ultimately rightful kingship. This is, as I mentioned, coinciding with the harvest festival. And he has several magical possessions in that he wields an unstoppable fiery spear, a sling stone, and owns a hound. He is known to have invented a number of important games, including horse racing, and has been acquainted with mercury. So I find this incredibly fascinating because of that synchronicity, but also this kind of overlapping that is transpiring here, because as I cast this chart for Appalachia, where I live on this Aquarius Blue Moon, Mercury and Mars are conjunct. In Virgo, they are married. And Mercury is ruling in this chart. And as many of you know, who've listened I love to connect mercury to Thoth, Tahuti, that creator of symbols. And there's a lot of layers of symbols happening here. And remembering that as this Full Moon is conjunct to Lug, and I apologize if I'm pronouncing his his name incorrectly. He's really symbolizing this frequency of rightful kingship. And as we look to that Aquarius, Leo access it is about the people versus the monarchy, the King, the Queen.

Ra Ma:

And in our time and space, we tend to have such resistance towards king and queen. A lot of people who are like social justice warriors really cringe at that concept in those words. And what I have to say in response to this is what we've been programmed for, especially in our recent times, when we consider monarchy, we tend to think of oppression and imperialists and colonists. However, the true king, the true queen, wears a symbol of a crown on their head as a reminder that they are in service and devotion to God/Goddess/Source/ The divine and that they are here to serve humanity on behalf of that path of devotion. And yes, we don't really see that a lot, especially in our current modalities of leadership. However, this is the rightful kingship, this is the rightful queenship. And so, there is a thread through this full moon around right full devotion and appearance within the greater collective. And that is something that is absolutely being sorted out in this time and space. And then we have Tahuti as the ruler of the chart conjunct having a connection to Lug. And we know that there is a great opportunity within this lunar illumination within a reverberation from the cosmos, that it is a time to take action through our words. Mars is also conjunct the asteroid Nephus and conjunct Philae in this chart, and so I think there's a typo there. I actually think it should be Mercury's conjunct Philae, but I am not able to pull up my chart that I pulled for that.

Ra Ma:

So this is a bit of a guesswork, but we know that the asteroid Nephus and Philae are also sandwiched in there with Mars and Mercury and Virgo in this chart. And for me, that feels quite profound. In my connection with the my journeys my travels in Egypt and Nephus. If you do not know her, she is the twin of Isis, Aset, Auset. And she is the chalice, she is the womb, she is the void, she is the source of all magic. And Philae is the temple of Isis. Philae is the temple of love, sacred love, and it is our sacred love, it is our devotion and our duty to one another, that is going to get us through these times. It is not our division, it is not our disagreements, it is not our opinions, and our different series of facts that so many of us have rightfully compiled. It's not all of that it is our love, it is our compassion for one another. It is our ability to see someone who has very different concepts and ideas that we do, and to love them anyways, and to respect them anyways. The moon and the sun are opposing one another and they're in square to Black Moon, Lilith and Ceres in Gemini, there is this challenge between our shadow and where we are nurturing in the sense of really wanting to share ideas, intellect information, out of the box thinking, this is being triggered through the sun and the moon. And

Ra Ma:

in addition, this moon we know is contemporarily ruled by Uranus. Uranus has just turned retrograde and Uranus as the ruler of the moon is also training, Mercury and Mars. So that push that invitation to really take action through our words, yet to do so with compassion is extremely important. We know also that Jupiter who is conjunct the moon and we're going to dive into that in a minute. But Jupiter is sextile Eris. So there's this like opportunity between Jupiter who expands and Eris who brings in the discord, there's an opportunity here for a deeper understanding, for gifts to be received. If we really put ourselves out there and commit to the work. And in this lunation as we've been hanging out for most of August, we've got this square between Eris and Pluto. And Eris and Pluto are challenging us as they've challenged us collectively. For most of 2020, it is an opportunity to dissolve, let go of, to witness, to see all that's coming to light and to bear witness to it with with compassion, with loving kindness. Now as I mentioned, the Moon is conjunct Jupiter retrograde they're both in Aquarius. And on this Full Moon Jupiter is also conjunct the asteroid Ariadne and I absolutely love Ariadne and her mythology and her story. She is very connected to the labyrinth. And she has quite a journey and we will go into her. And another point because there's other parts to speak to with this lunar cycle that are much more important to bring to light. As we look at Jupiter, Jupiter as the social teaching planet that really brings in opportunities for growth, for improvement. This is where the soul ascends beyond the material world. Jupiter represents our search for meaning, truth, ethical values. It is a planet of great spirituality, expanding everything it touches, teaching one how to grow beyond their limitations. Jupiter represents success, wealth, new concepts, creativity and how these are treasures how these are treasures for us in our lifetime. Jupiter in a shadow can also represent false hope, overoptimism and where this can cause true chaos in our lives. Now, as we're coming to this full moon, we have every single outer planet retrograde that includes Jupiter, Saturn, Chiron, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.

Ra Ma:

This is telling us personally and globally to do our greatest work, it is time to reflect to go within. This is a very important time of year to be doing this work. We also have a grand air Trine in this chart that is bringing in major possibilities for radical genius thoughts between Venus in Libra, Saturn retrograde and Aquarius and the Gemini north node that is reminding us that we have to focus on radical new ideas. We can't be stuck in the old paradigms that South Node in Sagittarius. And so as a reminder as Thoth, Tahuti is really in this chart, and Mercury and Mars are conjunct. There is really a true symbol here to use the power of the mind to be creative, to use the meditative mind, the mind of the yogi. It is that yogic ability to vision that pure vision is the first step of true action and success and manifestation. Now as we consider the Sabian symbols for this lunation we're going to look both at the Sabian symbol which I pull from an astrological mandala by Dane Rudhyar, and star sparks by Ellias Londsdale. Now Moon at 30 degrees Aquarius speaks to deeply rooted in the past of a very ancient culture. A spiritual brotherhood in which many individual minds are merged into the glowing light of a unanimous consciousness is revealed to one who has emerged successfully from his metamorphosis. This is about the ability for a person with an open mind and a deep feeling of self transcendence to come in contact with higher forms of existence. This is about a multiplicity of individuals, a unity of consciousness and soul anima now the star sparks for this is a large pool filled with white water lilies and bloom and I'd like to read with you, read for you what I captured from Ellias Lonsdale.

Ra Ma:

'Light is the spirit food which permeates the ethers of the planet with all that we need to grow and evolve. To inhale light and abundance is to be greatly blessed, honored, shown the way. We become vessels for the light. The light is endless, it is infinite. As we open our sense of the future, we open the gates wide, so that we may be flooded with extra ordinary light. Can we give of this feeling, tone, the subtle atmosphere, this prana to those who feel themselves to be cut off from its bounty. The only way we can stay true to what we experience here, yet equally be an evolutionary vessel of restoring what is most essential is if we can meet the struggles and strife of this world from a most distinctive and unusual place. We are called to be mightily detached, yet in the same breath, able to swoop right down and be entirely here with how everybody experiences the darkness and the sense of forgetting. For as we hold the high vertical study in the same time, yield its righteousness to the needs that arise. We become light bearers in terms that are lifegiving and fruitful in total measure, we learned to be empty and simple. And then the light streams through with no self importance anywhere in sight."

Ra Ma:

And that brings us to the sun at 30 degrees Leo, the moon is being reflected by this Leo Sun is being illuminated an unsealed letter, the realization by the individual that all thoughts and all messages are inevitably to be shared with all men. As we know nothing can be really hidden, except super superficially, and for a brief time, what any man thinks, and deeply realizes becomes the property of all men. Nothing is more senseless than possessiveness, in the realm of ideas. Nothing can remain permanently sealed. And we come to Ellias Lonsdales stales star sparks for the sun, the 30 degrees Leo. And I love this one, a woman sprinkling rosewater in the four corners of a room. I love this one because this is something I'm quite often doing. And again, I want to read to you what Ellias said because it's just pure poetry. Most of its word for word I paraphrased a little just side note on that.

Ra Ma:

"She is a carrier from the very heart of creation. She spreads wherever she goes. A mana, an elixir, a prana of renewal. She's a disseminator of the best things going around. Her vibration is high and free, clear and all encompassing. She brings messages and meanings, realizations and experiences, paths and journeys. She opens doors that would otherwise remain shut tight, for she has the magical touch to fan the flames of a new world coming true. People look toward her as a light bearer, a sparkling friend, one who can help us all to realize our utmost potential. Everybody sees in her the hope, the vision and the open channel for spirit to flood through. She herself is perpetually working on becoming a more surrendered and fluent embodiment of spirit. She has her work cut out for her. Any one sided, narrow tendencies become grist for her mill, she knows so much depends upon her, and that she's got to get so far out of the way. What she is called into is the fiery center, she must consume the dross of all remaining karmic stuff in order to merge within that center. Because all this is happening so far beyond the scope of old paradigms, it is a perpetual stretch, even for her to conceive what's coming through. Here and it's passionate power. For she herself is the experimental vehicle, the one who must try everything out on herself to make sure it's going to serve. Her vision will not allow for her to make any further separations. She herself must be entirely aligned within whatever she influences others towards. When this kind of synchronization is involved, we are at the peak point of human capacity. What most brightly shines through is equanimity, peacefulness and a sense of affirmation that will not be disrupted by boundaries, barriers, or stuffy reasons. And so that brings us to on Sunday, August 22, the sun shifts from Leo to Virgo at 5:35pm. So hours after that beautiful Aquarius Blue Moon, the Sun moves from Leo into Virgo, and we know Virgo as the maiden, the holistic healer, the humble servant, one who analyzes who is devoted to this mind body healing

Ra Ma:

with a true desire to function efficiently and I love to see Virgo as this beautiful celestial mother, that sees everything naked and has learning discernment on what to speak to, and what to shift and what to evolve. And Virgo, for me represents such this beautiful archetype of the Virgin we know the Virgin as the true sovereign one, one who has complete capacity domain over her physical body. And that in turn brings us to my original and usual deadline for these podcasts is every other Friday. And given the turbulence of this Lionsgate portal, I was unable to deliver this episode 34 to you by Friday the 13th. However, I still wish to honor the sacredness of this day, because this Friday, the 13th and this Aquarius Blue Moon, and all of the other amazing changes we've been going through in 2021, and 2020, and 2019. And we can just continue to go back and back and back in time and space. And for me, this is about letting the feminine lead the way. One of the things I've been writing about for many years, is how at the seat of the goddess at the table of the Goddess, there's a seat for everyone. This ability to allow feminine power to lead the way is ultimately in service of one and all. It is the womb of the mother that brings forth life of all beings on the planet. And Friday the 13th it is important we reclaim this day, just as it is important in my humble opinion that we allow the dams of the sacred rivers to be free so that the rivers may flow. There are these subtleties within our culture that continue to hold us back. And a fear of the 13th is one of those. We know that there are 13 moons in any year 13 moons, the moon cycle itself relates to the blood of the woman and is within the blood of the woman. This is blood, sacred Holy Blood, blood that a woman can bleed and she will not die. This is blood that carries the true nature of life, death and rebirth again and again. This ability to shed dissolve, let go of and rejuvenate to re matrix, the codes of life. This is divine holy truth. And Friday the 13th reminds us of such reminds us of the frequency of the Greek goddess, the great Cosmic Womb of all of creation. We know Fridays, we can trace them back to Venus day. Being a day of the feminine in and of itself. Venus as Earth's elder sister, as a gateway to beauty, to art to culture to love. And as we continue to demonize Friday the 13th we continue to demonize the great feminine power that is so needed in these times to lead the way. She is we and there's plenty for all at the table of the Goddess. The over culture has taught us by even intentionally omitting 13 and many public spaces, including hotel rooms and floors and different buildings. The over culture has taught humanity to fear their bodies, most significantly, the blood that is charted from a woman's womb. So here we are on earth. Here we are on earth in 2021. The fear quotient feels higher than ever before.

Ra Ma:

And what are we going to do about it? We are here to live life on this earth as King as queen as one who walks with dignity with nobility to crown thyself is to walk hand in hand with the Divine and sovereign truth. To live knowing that you are a creator. It is your time to do the deep inner pilgrimage work to understand how holy and sacred and vulnerable, how precious these lives are, how short they are, and how they truly are a gift. May you find the capacity to dissolve old grudges. May you find the ways where you can take greater personal responsibility. May you have the strength to choose the higher road to commit to your ancestral lineage work. May you find the dedication to ground yourself daily, to clear your channel regularly to let go of the old fears, the places where you just want to run away. May you live from the heart filled with courage. May you bonfire all of your self sabotage mechanisms. May you practice, practice, practice and live life with elegance and grace and beauty.

Ra Ma:

And with that, I came across some old notes of one of the last times I was with one of my beloved mentors Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes and I captured these notes from something she shared that afternoon on how to live in the world today. And this is what she said. Pick three things in your inner life and three things in your outer life and give your days to those. See them through to completion. Stay informed of current events. If your heart and psyche can hold the reality so that you know who and where to send your prayers. Vote for the most winnable candidates in any election that best fit your values. Historically, fascism has risen due to third party candidates participate in politics at the local level. Know Your City Council representatives, write letters and concise one paragraph formats to your senators, representatives, governors and so on. Participate in the world around you as this balances out the feeling of being helpless versus wishing to stick your head in the sand. Reassure your vulnerable friends, whether they are people of color, single parents, trans, gay, etc. Reassure them that you have their back and mean it. We must go into action. We stand for the purity of self and the decency of others. A nightmare is a nightmare because there is no ending, you must help to create one. And with that, with that may you have the most blessed journey through this Full Moon portal. That in my opinion it is this Aquarius Blue Moon that closes out this Lionsgate portal of 2021 in totality.

Ra Ma:

May you be blessed, may you be holy. May you walk with ease and grace and may gratitude flow from your lips and from your heart and from your deeds. And so it is. Blessed be.

Ra Ma:

Now I invite you to come and lie down or find a seated place for a journey to integrate to clear to anchor your channel. So I invite you to find the space to do so you can pause here check out the timestamp and come back around when it feels right for you. Making sure you're in a room where you can close the door, temperature is good, your biological needs are taken care of, technology is free of distracting you. And you're going to come and find that position that feels really cozy and comfortable placing a blanket over you for added warmth. And you're going to come and you're going to lie down or sit. And you're going to close your eyes, you're going to allow a warm wave of relaxation to move up through the body from the soles of the feet. And just begin to move through your entire physical body.

Ra Ma:

And you're going to begin to imagine from the base of the spine, the soles of the feet, the palms of the hands, beautiful red, golden silver cords of light cords of life. Spiraling, going deep, deep down into Mother Earth, all the way down into the core of Mother Earth, connecting, anchoring into great grandmother hematite, this lineage stone that connects us to the seven generations who have come before. The seven generations who have yet to come.

Ra Ma:

And in this space, you begin to welcome from your left hand side, your female ancestors, the feminine within you. Going all the way back to that ancient primal first woman and all have her genius resources present flowing here and now through your DNA, stones of your bones that connect to the bones of the stones of Mother Earth. You bring your awareness to the right hand side of your body. And you connect into that ancient primal first man, immediately. He's there, ready, instinctual, innovative, protective, independent. Then you connect to all the men who have come before you. Bringing in this wisdom of the elders, giving gratitude

Ra Ma:

and feeling the backing. of your ancestors, you bring your awareness back to your physical body in the space that it is here and now. And you're going to begin to imagine yourself removing any implants and even more shards of energy that are in your physical field, your energy field, your physical body, that is not a part of your authenticity. And you're going to begin to imagine this electric blue light coming through to create a strong psychic boundary enveloping your entire physical body and going in to help remove anything that is not your authenticity. And if you would like to mentally say along with me this intention in the name of God/Goddess/Creator/Divine source under grace, I now decree that all alien implants all negative entities, etheric mucus, negative clouds and thought forms from this universe, or any other universe, from this lifetime, or any other lifetime, from all levels, from my physical, emotional, mental, psychic, and spiritual bodies be released. Now!

Ra Ma:

So be it, it is done and begin to imagine that electric blue light protecting you and then the sacred nectar begins to drip all the way from the great, great galactic center, the Cosmic Womb of this multiverse, this beautiful honey from the Great Mother drips from the great cosmic Sun of Creation, down through the crown of your head, spiraling down through your spinal column and pulsing through every cell of your body, filling up and healing any places and spaces where anything that was not you was removed. And you feel this cosmic honey just filling up all of you all of who you are. And from this great cosmic sun, comes a large golden beam, a beam of blue, purple and gold woven together

Ra Ma:

these rays of light woven together creating a triangle, pyramid of light so that you find yourself fully encased in a Merkabah, golden star of lights and you begin to feel one golden blue violet, triangle spinning clockwise

Ra Ma:

and feeling the opposite triangle spinning and counter clockwise. Then they begin to spend equally, the same cadence in different directions and you begin to feel yourself journeying. Moving through time and space. You find yourself Dancing with the Stars all the way back to your star seed nation. Connecting with your pure divine child self. You find yourself seated in the divine masculine with the feminine I seated before you that mystical marriage of the divine feminine and the divine masculine. Watching over the unfolding beyond time and space and you feel yourself held in this golden Womb of light. Where the solar eye has destroyed all falsehood and all lies. And as you stare into this feminine, create tricks. You feel yourself in full alignment and full truth, full play and full beauty. She looks into you the seer the visionary, the embodiment of the True Holy beloved, with balance with justice and dignity. With complete sovereignty, and a knowingness and she gives you a scroll of papyrus. And you begin to open the scroll. Look through this, these symbols this writing, and they are Beyond The Beyond yet you know, everything that is written just the story of your souls journey. And as you glance at these codes of lights coming alive from the papyrus you fully remember all of yourselves, your ancient selves, your future selves.

Ra Ma:

You received this great gift with complete honor and grace. And as you're in this golden Cosmic Womb with this divine father and Divine Mother, you feel purified of any trauma timelines. When this was all that you longed for, to be seen, to be held, to be known to be elevated. And you will allow he will allow this sensation of pure love to fill you up. So deeply nourishing you so completely so elegantly. And you take that papyrus and you roll it up so thin, and you place it in a little glass vial that you place around your neck, that hits right at your heart center. And immediately your chest absorbs it right into the center of your heart. And you feel the sacred truth become one with all of who you are.

Ra Ma:

And as you're lying there, you begin to feel the sensation of stones been placed all over your body. Mookaite stones, Carnelian, Pink calcite, Morganite. Aquamarine, Mica, Ammonite, please, at the soles of your feet, on your kneecaps. in your womb, heart space, over your stomach, your hearts, your throat, your third eye, your crown, the palms of your hands and your elbow points. You feel these stones laid out around your physical body. And the sentient beings of these stones travel through time and space to honor you. To bring you fully alive here and now. In your vision of the highest. Knowing exactly what your divine child came to earth to create, to transform to embody. And as you bring your awareness, back to your physical body. You take a nice long, deep breath up from Mother Earth and as you exhale You allow that breath to travel up from the base of the spine to the crown of the head. And then you inhale. You draw the breath from the Cosmos, and you exhale. Allow that breath to fill up from the crown of the head to the base of the spine. Again, draw the breath in, pulling up from Mother Earth, exhaling into your vertebrae. Again, drawing the breath from the cosmos down through the crown, exhaling into your vertebrae. Once more inhaling. from Mother Earth, into your body. Exhale. Inhale. From the Cosmos exhale into your body.

Ra Ma:

Begin to wiggle through the fingers and the toes. Circle through the wrists and the ankles. rub together the palms of the hands and the soles of the feet. Relax the legs out long and take the hands and cup the eyes. placed the hands over the eyes and take some long deep breaths in.

Ra Ma:

And when you're ready, you're going to roll over onto your right side. As you most likely spent some good time inside of your mother's womb like this. You're going to place one hand on your heart, one hand to the earth as if you're on Mother Earth's heart. Because you are gonna offer your gratitude and you're gonna take your time to come sitting up when you're ready. Perhaps taking some time to reflect about your journey through writing. Perhaps slipping into a bath or going on a walk in nature or playing with your child or making some beautiful drawing or painting. Finding that way to express your own sacred lifeforce, your own unique arts, marking this beautiful life through your spiritual legacy through you.

Ra Ma:

May Isis heal me as she healed her son Horus of all the pains which were brought on him. Thou great Enchantress, heal me, save me from all evil, things of darkness from the epidemic and deadly diseases and infections of all sorts that sprang upon me as thou hast saved and freed Horus. Free me from all possible evil, hurtful things of darkness from epidemic and deadly fevers of all kinds. And so it is.
