Monday 14th April 2014 - Moon in Libra
The Beginning of Deleting All Karmic Garbage & All Negativity
The World is going to be "tidied-up" and "cleansed" at the Full Moon
The most important karmic lessons of each and every lifetime you live is to teach that relationships with other PEOPLE are the MOST important reason for living life - even more important than MONEY - although it is very clear from people with BAD karma in the world that "they" still value MONEY more important than PEOPLE. As soon as you've realized that PEOPLE are the most important part of your life - is when you realize the karmic truth. The purpose of your life is to have GOOD relationships with all the people you know in your life - and thereby making "you" wholesome.
People who are grumpy and sad - complaining and critical of others are ALWAYS the people who have the BIGGEST problems with themselves - conversely when you're happy and wholesome with life - you ALWAYS see the good in people and ALWAYS attract good people into your life. The "others" don't even bother you.
Each year - you grow - and in growing-up - means you're becoming more wholesome - hence you're taking yourself to new levels of understanding, awareness and even new relationships - but in order to grow - there are things and people that your aura needs to let-go of. They" are no longer necessary in the meaning of your life.
Some will LET GO easily - others will FIGHT it - others will ENJOY being cleansed - whilst others will cry their eyes out - others will ACCEPT - whilst others will attempt to hold-onto to relationship negativity and emotional garbage. The good news is by the Full Moon on 15th April 2014 - DESTINY defines the NEW you - even if the next few days are bumpy in getting there - you will learn WHO are and WHAT is truly important to you.
Is it your nature to hoard and hold-onto to EVERYTHING? Or are you the type that lets-go and enjoy's clearing the garbage out? Or are you the type that's had a bad relationship - and never been able to love again - because your aura is full of negativity towards relationships? Or are you an ACCEPTING person - that realizes all your relationships were good for you - but destiny has a time to move-on with life?
The Full Moon in Libra is karmic - WHY you feel the way you do is karmic too. Today is time to ACCEPT the changes you feel - and instead of getting angry with anyone - become WISE, ACCEPTING and LOVE all - for when you LOVE all - you fill your own aura with LOVE - and this will define your life - a life full of happiness and love for all. There will be strong karmic moments - when you will remember people from the "past" - but instead of getting angry at them - you'll detach and forgive them too - this will be the recipe for karmic healing. Hence, you're going to learn the method that karmic garbage is cleared out of your aura is - by FORGIVING all and when you FORGIVE - you FORGET the negativity and will find yourself feeling GOOD - and LOVING all.
Unfortunately, there are people with very BAD karma - very hateful people - embedded hatred over many lifetimes - that can't find the ability to LOVE ALL - their BAD attitude, their arrogance and their karma will now affect them. It is human nature to FORGIVE - and yet many can't FORGIVE - so they make themselves a magnet for more BAD karma - every hateful thought they create - creates more BAD karma - and that ONLY affects them - until one day "they" die in a state of hatred and unforgiveness. Conversely with GOOD karma - every forgiving thought - every loving thought - creates GOOD karma - and will enable you to embrace the future and move-on forwards.
Each of these aspects will create numerous non-stop oscillations and changes - during the day - things which you've accepted until now - will finally "snap" - "break" - "end" - because the emotional pain will be TOO MUCH to hold-on. Conversely, it will positively energize your emotions to WANT something / someone so much - because you know it's so good for you - and it's your destiny - there's no more doubting - as the Full Moon will eliminate all doubts.
Moon 12° Libra squares Jupiter 12° Cancer life creates days that act as signposts - to guide us towards people who are GOOD for you - and be avoiding someone who is BAD for you - automatically you will become attracted to someone GOOD for you.
Moon 12° Libra opposes Mercury 12° Aries the magnetic attraction of opposites - shows you with clarity - what you need in your life - and today you'll see it with clarity - communicating what you want - if it is in alignment with karma - you'll get it - if it isn't you'll need to accept it too. But the Moon will make you say what you know you need to say.
Moon 13° Libra opposes Uranus 13° Aries unexpected surprises - unexpected shifts and changes in relationships - for when you FORGIVE and LOVE ALL - then everything gets fixed - [and conversely for the people with bad karma - when they hate all - they break everything]. It will happen in a second - and yet change everything.
Moon 13° Libra squares Pluto 13° Capricorn someone makes you feel very uncomfortable inside - the only way is to DETACH from them - and forgive them - recognize the truth that "they" have BAD karma - and don't let them influence your life with their negativity.
Moon 16° Libra conjunct Mars [in retrograde] 16° Libra unexpectedly and surprisingly - people from the "past" reconnect with you - if you've learnt the karmic lessons - you won't be affected by their anger or negativity - but if you've still got "relationship" issues to learn - then you will become angry with them.

15th April - Karmic Libra Full Moon of Justice
Full Moon & "New" Moon - rolled into one
Full Moon at 7:46am GMT - 9:46am Europe - 1:16pm India - 6:46pm Sydney Australia - 3:46am USA EST
Monday night and into Tuesday morning - will be STRONG - not because of it's intensity of being a Full Moon - but because by Monday night - you will be feeling HAPPY, EXCITED and FRESH - like a newborn baby - full of life. You will be feeling cleansed from all negativity - especially after the headaches you've had on Monday. Hence, your whole aura will be ALIVE and positive. It might need you to discuss and talk to some people - but that will come easily.
However - and this is the BIG BUT - people who are so proud, so stubborn, so fixed and so arrogant - will find it impossible to make contact - they can't communicate - because by communicating - the TRUTH will be revealed of how BAD they are - and what LIES they've told in the past. It might be someone from past few months, few years - even someone from 20 years ago - but this karmic blood Full Moon - will be teaching "them" a very bitter lesson. As you can see from the astrological chart - it has the power of strong attraction - if stubborn people BLOCK the attraction through their arrogant negativity - "they" will be given a difficult challenge - and ironically it will only affect "them".
Moon 25° Libra opposes Sun 25° Aries Full Moon 25° Libra - "Blood" Full Moon - "the 1st of 4". The reason why MOON Astrology is so important is that it is the MOON's energy that reacts with each of us - that affects our emotions - and then makes us do things. Even things that are totally illogical - happen under the influence of the Moon's energies - and this Full Moon will prove that point is more ways than one.
In USA and North & South America - you will see the Moon - and then it will completely go a BLOOD RED color at the time of the Full Moon - it will feel strange - it will make you feel that something BIG is going to happen - and then after the Moon regains it's full brilliant white color - and nothing magical has happend - you will feel an anticlimax. It will feel like a FUSS for NOTHING.
That's not so - because something has happened INSIDE you - IN YOUR AURA - and during Tuesday - you will feel cleansed and calm - with a "knowledge" that something has changed and as you receive the clarity - you will feel DETACHED from things that have annoyed you - and feel CALM about everything in your life. The karmic Blood full Moon defines ACCEPTANCE. In the rest of the world - Asia & Europe - where we don't see the Blood Full Moon - we will still feel a positive auric shift - and we too - will learn the lesson of ACCEPTANCE. However, I must add - there are TWO forms of ACCEPTANCE - you can ACCEPT things reluctantly or you can ACCEPT with happiness - be the latter!
Indeed, I will be honest - I've read some of the "garbage" on the internet about the results of the karmic blood Full Moon [on the monthly Astrology page I explain the prophetic meaning of Blood Full Moons when the "Mysterious becomes the norm and the norm becomes mysterious"] - and some things will SURPRISE many.
But nonsensical predictions that it's going to wipe the USA off the map of the world - with earthquakes, tsunamis etc etc - that's all 100% nonsense - and even if it did flood Miami - there's nothing anyone can do about it - it is karmic and destined. ACCEPTANCE is required - so instead of being in state of panic and fear - the good aspects of the karmic Full Moon will help you embrace EVERYTHING with Happiness - and there will be a lot of things to be VERY HAPPY about - you'll see !
The Results of the Karmic Full Moon
The Moon in Libra and the end-result of the karmic Full Moon will define your future - well certainly the next 3 months - because the accuracy and intensity you will experience - will define that ENDINGS must END - detachments must be made - and the NEW "you" is defined with ALL your 7 planetary relationships in your life - for it is ONLY when you have ALL 7 planets active and vibrant in your life - that's when you're truly wholesome.
"Some" people in your life - will prove that they are IMPOSSIBLE to relate to or to communicate with - "their" bad connection to you isn't doing either of you any good - so the Full Moon will "snap" and "break" the connection - whereas with other people - you will find a way of redefining boundaries and working WITH them - whilst others you will realize that you NEED in your life so much - that you will work around any obstacles that currently exist - make "the relationship" work.
Because the emotional intensity of the Full Moon will define an inexplicable magnetic attraction to people and places whom are very important in your life - whilst it will "break" all the connections to all who are meaningless and useless in your life too.
There is an important reason why I've explained this karmic blood Full Moon at length and will be referring back to this in the next 6 months - as this is 1st of 4 blood Full Moon's - which means that today's karmic blood Full Moon will redefine your life between now and the next blood Full Moon of 8th October 2014.
Karmic things - good karma and bad karma - you NEVER expected to happen will happen - all things in your life that have become stagnant and blocked will unexpectedly change - "Mysterious becomes the norm and the norm becomes mysterious" - it will all happen - NON-STOP - from today. Then from 8th October 2014 it shifts UP a gear - when even more mysterious and unexpected things happen.
* Hands of Time
Today my hands are aged from years and time,
Yet as I look upon them, they’re not just mine.
For what I see is not mine alone,
I see a past in their age now shown.
I see my grandmothers loving care,
Her tender teaching in a face so fair.
Hands that were callused by life’s endless miles,
Scarred through the years and each personal trial.
Hands filled with power to heal those in need,
Bring life into the world and set spirits free.
Her hands were so tender with a magickal touch,
Gentle hands of love that taught me to feel so much.
Yet what I see that stirs my memories soul,
Are the mystical stories of the past yet untold.
As she held her hands up in the night,
Giving blessings unto the Goddess of light.

The Red Blood Moon of April - Seed Moon Plan a ritual to physically plant your seeds of desire in Mother Earth.
It is the first of two total lunar eclipses in 2014 and is the first of a tetrad, meaning four total lunar eclipses in series.
While some fundamentalist Christians are saying that this series of four lunar eclipses – also known as “blood moons” because the celestial body takes on a red hue – heralds the End of Days, I think that’s just as unlikely as any other end of the world prediction we’ve so far survived.
However, if you are into scrying and other types of divination, lunar eclipses are a good time to have a go. The energy of the blood moon can also be used for magical rituals and spells for personal transformation.
“Eclipses offer us unique and sometimes rare opportunities for doing special magical or psychic work that can be lifechanging.”
If you want to make a big change in your life, now is a good time to make a start. Today, think about what transformation you really want, whether that is a new job, a change in a relationship, a house move or embarking on a new spiritual path. Then, at the time of the eclipse, write down your intention on a slip of paper as a promise to yourself. Fold the paper up and put it into your wallet or purse to keep with you at all times until the change manifests itself.
According to NASA and "folklore, October's full moon is called the "Hunter's Moon" or sometimes the "Blood Moon." It gets its name from hunters who tracked and killed their prey by autumn moonlight, stockpiling food for the winter ahead. You can picture them: silent figures padding through the forest, the moon overhead, pale as a corpse, its cold light betraying the creatures of the wood."
There are many different correspondence tables for Moon Names. But most do agree on the alias "Blood Moon" during the three months of fall when hunting and harvesting take place.
Today the Blood Moon is typically associated with the first full moon nearest the Autumn Equinox, for us in the Northern Hemisphere that occurs in October. But it can occur as early as September (The Fruit Moon), and as late as November (The Beaver Moon) as the Earth tilts back away from the sun. Consequently these same affects can be seen in the Southern Hemisphere on the opposite side of the year, corresponding to the full moons of March, April and May.
Observances During The Blood Moon:
During the autumn months, The Blood Moon represents abundance, hunting, gathering and preparing for the cold winter months. It's a time to honor the Harvest and Hunting Gods/Goddesses. Many festivals take place during this time to give thanks and appreciation for the bounty and stockpiles of plenty gathered by a clan or tribe. The Feast of the Hunter's Moon is a long standing practice in Indiana where a living Native American history re-enactment takes place. But similar events can be found around the world and with varying names.
From a magikal point of view, the same concepts can be enacted today for these full moons rituals. They can be used to bring abundance into your life in the form of finances, harvest, health, friendship and love. And to give thanks and honoring the blessings of the Harvest.
A Blood Moon Eclipse:
Occasionally, we can find a rare Blood Moon lunar eclipse. This can occur anytime of the year. But how does it happen? Well the Earth casts a long shadow that extends out into space. When the moon passes behind the Earth, opposite of the Sun, (in other words Earth is in the middle), we cast a long shadow that hides the moon. That's what a lunar eclipse is.
Now let's say you had a space ship and traveled out between the Earth and the Moon during an eclipse. Look out the window back at Earth and you'll be looking at the dark side. The Earth will be in silhouette and what you're seeing is every sunrise and sunset on Earth--all at once. This ring of light shines into Earth's shadow, breaking the utter darkness you might expect to find there. Turn off the cockpit lights and look at the Moon and there's a lovely red glow.
What's in the Earths atmosphere will also affect the color or shade of red reflected on the Moon. According to NASA, following a volcanic eruption, for instance, dust and ash can turn global sunsets vivid red. The moon would glow vivid red, too. Lots of clouds, on the other hand, extinguish sunsets, leading to darker, dimmer eclipses. The Moon can shine as Pumpkin Orange to Deep Blood Red all depending on the Earth's weather or natural events.
Observances During The Blood Moon Eclipse:
Since an eclipse is an extra special event, it has a special energy and observance. Especially when it's a rare Blood Moon eclipse. These special occasions are used for honoring and celebrating life, or the blood flow of life. This energy of the moon can be used to energize fertility, abundance, or communicate with spirit.
RED BLOOD MOON ECLIPSE RITUAL:
Well, last month we experienced a rare Black Moon/New Moon. Next week April 15th, we will experienced a rare Red Blood Moon on a lunar eclipse.
Generally, the Blood Moon is associated with October’s full moon or the Hunter’s moon. During this time of collecting ones harvest, sharing of love with friends, family and the community, and sharing abundance or so it used to be.
But the rare Red Blood Moon April 15th is unique in that these lunar eclipses which are special events in and of itself. A lunar eclipse is a time to work on ones magic and psychic abilities and to remove blocks of any kind because the full moon is a time of letting go and embracing ones power and strength.
Energy of a lunar eclipse is very powerful and has a potency strength lasting at least 6 month for any magic spell casting, and coupled with the rare Red Blood Moon this could be a time to manifest powerful abundance and self improvement of ones psychic gifts and talents.
The rare Red Blood Moons are a special occasions used for honoring and celebrating life, or the blood flow of life. This energy of the moon can be used to energize fertility, abundance, or communicate with spirit.
So light your red candles (you can use a green candle) but during this energy a red candle will suffice. The following prayer is one of many to use to draw down the energy above:
“By the gods and the goddess above
bring money into my life
through this spell I shall have money
and I shall harm no one in receiving
and it shall not come back to me
so I bind the powers of three
as I will it so mote it be”.
My Goddess Hecate,
protect me if I be a lost wanderer,
by Your tripled power from any devourer,
for You are the Goddess of crossroads,
and I call unto You to fill me with your grace.
You are mighty and have the power,
as I call unto You on earth or in are in another tower or realm.
By the power of Her knife ,
may She banish every evil from my life,
by the power of Her key,
may She turn my wishes to be,
by the power of Her cauldron,
may She stir the wheels of my good fortune of health and happiness.
By the power of Her light,
may She makes all things right,
and by the power of Her graceful love for me,
may She heal and keep me in her heart!
So mote it be!
Sunday 13th April 2014
Moon enters Libra 9:30am BST - 10:30am Europe - 2pm India
6:30pm Sydney Australia - 4:30am USA EST
**Gibbous Moon phase**
The Moon sesquiquadrates the Sun (at a separating 135 degree angle)
As the Moon waxes brighter and larger, so does our ability to make quick mental connections and have inspired revelations. A heightened energy level increases the desire to contribute relevant and useful content to the culture. Flexibly devote yourself to what is meaningful to you.
Moon into Libra
Sunday kicks off nicely as the Moon moves into the partnership sign of Libra ahead of a funny connection between Mercury and Jupiter. If you’re out and about being social today, you have great Stars for it. And, if it’s just you and your beloved at home with each other, that’s potentially lovely, too.
Impatience is a blessing ..... "sometimes" !
The past few days - Moon in Virgo - has shown you that OPPOSITIONS, negativity and confrontations are so important - as they help KEEP YOU AWAY from bad people and bad situations. If someone was sweet, nice, pleasant and welcoming - you'd naturally want to stay WITH them. I'm sure you can all look BACK in hindsight to all the argumentative, hateful, nasty people in your life - and realize this TRUTH - that if they'd been nice to you - you'd still be with them and be connected to them. THANK GOD they were horrible to you - because it SAVED your life from being connected with them.
If you look at ALL the good decisions you made - moving home - moving job - leaving your "ex's" - all the BEST decisions were defined by having BAD people in BAD situations with BAD energy who chased you away from BADNESS. The truth is it's a HUGE BLESSING that you've had BAD people - as they've guided your life. Remember this - when / if things turn nasty - because each negativity is a SIGN to keep away from, to disconnect from and realize a truth about your current status of your life - that DESTINY is creating the negativity - in order to SAVE YOUR LIFE.
Even something "small" like - going to your local coffee shop - most of the time - you put up with the noise and other people's energies - but when you're in a "bad" mood - everything that's WRONG - disturbs you. Unfortunately when Moon enters Libra 9:30am BST - 10:30am Europe - 2pm India - 6:30pm Sydney Australia - 4:30am USA EST - EVERYTHING - and I mean literally EVERYTHING - that is WRONG - will annoy and disturb you. To the extent - that for some people - it will feel like NOTHING can go RIGHT today. Conversely the other side of the LIBRA scales is that - EVERYTHING - and I mean literally EVERYTHING - that is RIGHT - will excite you and make you happy to be alive.
This is a GOOD thing - because the astrological energies are so powerful - that everything is being magnified - for good and for bad - so whatever is GOOD in your life - will become brilliantly, light, happy and powerfully VERY GOOD for you - whilst whatever is BAD in your life - will appear BLACK - DARK - NEGATIVE - FILTHY - that will force you to GET RID of it from your life - because it's so nasty, bad and horrible - you can't stand "it" anymore.
Due to Mercury in Aries - Sun in Aries - Uranus in Aries - with the powerful almost Full Moon in Libra - means that it will be VERY powerful day - a lot of things will be happening very quickly, surprisingly, suddenly and unexpectedly - it will be especially surprising for people who've no idea of astrology and the approaching Full Moon. But the reason for the stress, strain and frustrations are all compounded by Jupiter in Cancer and Pluto in Capricorn - squaring Mercury, Sun & Uranus in Aries on one side - whist being squared by the Moon in Libra on the other side. Something has to "snap" - "break" - "end" - and it will be triggered by people's EMOTIONS.
"Impatience" is a strange thing - because when you're doing something you should be doing you enjoy doing it - you never get impatient - in fact you have all the time in the world - BUT - when you're doing something you should NOT be doing and when there's something intrinsically WRONG with your life - then the energies of IMPATIENCE annoy you. Deep-down - you're not at peace with yourself - doing what you're not supposed to be doing - so when the emotional intensity is turned-on - it manifests as moody impatience.
On Sunday - the Moon in Libra will be compounded by Mercury in Aries - making you nervy, anxious and impatient - the reason is to ensure you KEEP AWAY from and don't do what you shouldn't be doing. This can have a POSITIVE effect - because when you are impatient - you not only wake-up and VALUE TIME - you value the gift of life - the minutes - the hours - the days, months and years - each second of life becomes PRECIOUS - so you instinctively do what's truly important for you to do without time-wasting on nonsense.TIME is PRECIOUS. Thankfully - today - you get to see how precious it is to you and most importantly the reasons "why". What "it" is you truly LIVE for - what and why "it" is you truly enjoy in your life - will become clear during Moon in Libra - as everything negative and useless gets dumped.
(Mar 21 – Apr 19)
You think that you can’t tell your friends what you really want now because you’re afraid of being judged. Nevertheless, several planets are traveling through your feisty sign, prompting you to take a risk and express your feelings anyhow. However, it’s crucial to consider the impact of your words on a loved one before saying something that could be misinterpreted. Don’t be afraid of sharing your truth; just know when to stop or you could find yourself enmeshed in an unnecessary drama.
(Apr 20 – May 20)
Although your desires may seem deliciously warm this morning, it could get much hotter than you expect as your ruling planet, Venus, continues to lure you into the heat of fantasy today. However, if you believe that you have overstepped your bounds, you might cool off rather suddenly and pull away. Unfortunately, someone could misinterpret your behavior and assume that your emotional retreat is because of your lack of affection. Avoid needless problems by communicating clearly from the start.
(May 21 – Jun 20)
You might feel relatively clueless about your direction today, but the more you try to map out your destination, the less you seem to know which way to go. Unfortunately, your rational analysis won’t give you the whole picture now, for reality is being augmented by emotional rather than logical currents. Stop trying to think your way through these circumstances. Oddly enough, you gain a sense of freedom, or even temporary exhilaration, when you surrender to your feelings and follow your heart.
(Jun 21 – Jul 22)
You could seem a bit absent-minded today as you slip in and out of contact with your imagination. However, if you lose touch with other planes of existence, they still make themselves known in the here and now. You can stretch your awareness and have momentary glimpses of how all the pieces fit together. But eventually, you may close back down and might even be confused by the whole experience. Luckily, it’s possible to relieve some of your anxiety by remembering that life is a mystery after all.
(Jul 23 – Aug 22)
Reality may act just like a wet blanket as the truth dampens your spirits, especially if your expectations are overinflated now. But satisfaction might be within reach if you adjust your attitude so you can joyfully accept whatever opportunities you’re being offered. This temporary setback isn’t about lowering your standards; it’s about practicing the art of being grateful for what you currently have. Counting your blessings is an excellent first step.
(Aug 23 – Sep 22)
Your over-the-top optimism sets you up for disappointment today. Or, maybe, you’re already discouraged and an enthusiastic friend tries to lift your spirits. No matter what occurs, you still might not feel very supported now. Just recognizing that others appreciate your talents and acknowledge your contributions could be enough to put you back on track. But don’t withdraw if you feel misunderstood for any reason. Be clear about your intentions and you have a better chance of ultimately being seen for who you truly are.
(Sep 23 – Oct 22)
You’re often the one who takes the time to understand what others are feeling, even if your empathy ends up making decisions more difficult. However, interactions with people around you might leave you with a sense of disillusionment today. Relationships may seem like a total mystery now and you don’t even know where to begin to put things back in balance. Thankfully, cultivating emotional detachment allows your perspective to return to normal in just a few days. In the meantime, keep the lines of communication open without making any sudden moves.
(Oct 23 – Nov 21)
You don’t ask for a lot today; all you want is the connection of familiarity with a close friend. Unfortunately, your support network might seem somewhat distant now, leaving you feeling lonely or nostalgic. However, it’s not nearly as bad as it seems at first because the gulf between you and others won’t last long, especially since it’s largely the result of your own runaway imagination. Don’t worry; the real world is on its way back, bringing more clarity along with it.
(Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Your playful spirit might run into a wall today, but the external resistance won’t hold you back for long. You may be required to readjust your goals, but that’s just because they weren’t all that realistic in the first place. Once you bring your hopes back into line, you could discover that the new obstacles will be much easier to overcome. If success starts to slip through your fingers, keep a positive attitude, reconsider your objectives and try again.
(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
You have no trouble acting as the taskmaster today while the Moon aligns with stern Saturn. However, playing this lead role can be more work than you expected because charming Venus is attempting to soften your heart. But neither flirtation nor temptation should distract you from your current goals. Don’t give in; you must hold up your end of the bargain now by being the most responsible one in the group. Ultimately, others will appreciate your perseverance and singular focus.
(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Sustaining your connection with your imagination isn’t your top priority today because you want to produce tangible results. Although you’re normally quite capable of depersonalizing your feelings so you can have a more universal understanding of reality and the human condition, today’s Virgo Moon demands that you bring your ideas back down to earth. Don’t go too far in either direction; seek ways to balance your dreams with your present circumstances so you can experience the best of both worlds.
(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Fitting yourself neatly into a box that’s been created by someone else may be impossible today. But a close friend or partner has very specific expectations about how you should behave now, and you might not perform as desired. Conflicts between your personal styles or values is only a problem if one of you is so insecure that you need the other person to agree with you one hundred percent. Assure those you love that expressing your individuality doesn’t mean you love them any less.

Today's Tarot: High Priestess
Traditionally called the High Priestess, this major arcana, or trump, card represents human wisdom. She can be viewed as a kind of female Pope, the ancient Egyptian Priestess of Isis, the even older snake and bird Goddesses, the Greek Goddess Persephone, or the Eve of Genesis before the Fall.
For the accused heretics who were burnt at the stake for revering her in the 14th and 15th century, she symbolized the prophecy of the return of the Holy Spirit, which was perceived as the female aspect of the Holy Trinity.
In the sequence of cards in the major arcana, the High Priestess appears as soon as the Fool decides he wants to develop his innate powers, making a move toward becoming a Magus. The High Priestess is his first teacher, representing the Inner Life and the method for contacting it, as well as the contemplative study of Nature and the Holy Mysteries.
Today's Rune: Hagalaz:

What happens when you create sacred space, is that you make room for non-ordinary reality to start to happen. You open a window to magic. It is a communing of self, and self with energies that want to lift one's vibrational frequency to a higher level. How do you do this? Sitting and closing your eyes is a simple way. The temple is within, so nothing special needs to happen. It does help to be alone or with another person who is also doing the same thing with you. It helps to not be distracted by ordinary reality so you can really go inside yourself.
What are some ways to raise your frequency?
1. Set some intentions for your experience which you can say out loud or silently from your heart.
2. Use sound- either by listening to some sacred music or tones, chanting, or toning sounds. Toning is wonderful to do with other people. Add a drum played by you or another person, or add an audio track of shamanic drumming that is repetitive. Shamanism uses drumbeats as a way to go into an altered state of consciousness which is the non-ordinary reality of sacred space.
3. Use invocations that are prayers, which raise your frequency. YOu can feel it in your body as this happens which is like being more connected. I AM Presence invocations are perfect, and go with what resonates with your own belief systems and feels good to you.
4. Call for and and imagine sacred spaces. A simple way is to build an imaginary pyramid which creates a vortex of energy around you. Dimensional corridors can be called in, which is explained by Arcturian connected author David K. Miller. You can see them as hubs or stargates between dimensions. It is a space that raises your frequency so you can commune with higher dimensional beings more easily, and also receive divine inspiration. Parallel reality shifts are a really excellent tool. It isn't that you are changing location but changing to a different frequency reality such as the one with the most unconditional love possible, or the one with complete knowing. Imagination helps you do this and it is really simple as you imagine it and then feel it, as in the new parallel reality.
5. Ask for the highest guidance once you are in these sacred spaces, for whatever you wish to know about. Be receptive as your multidimensional senses want to communicate in various ways.
6. Journeys and meditations with yourself, or with others, are great ways to raise your frequency once you are in the zone of a non-ordinary state of being. Shamans do this. Keep in mind that staying in your heart, with heart awareness and a feeling of unconditional love will bring you to a more true reality that is aligned with higher dimensional energy. This is very important in your journeys and meditations. Love is the difference between the 5th and higher dimensions and the astral planes. Know that your higher self is always there and can be called on. All of this to to access parts of yourself you normally are not aware. You can ask for upgrades, DNA activation, or color frequencies as well as guidance from your higher self. Be sure to play and find your own way. Bring childlike fun and curiosity as being spiritual doesn't always have to be serious and hard work. It should really be a good time, and having a feeling of support, we can more easily face our shadows and heal our hurt places. In these spaces of magic which we can create for ourselves, we can also heal and transform ourselves and this is of value.
Wishing you many wonderful experiences in your inner temple of the Self,Ommmmmm

"Mission Control acknowledges that the process of waking up is a little tricky. Even though you are genetically encoded to do so, by the time you reach the point of activation, you will be totally convinced that you are an Earthling."
E. T. 101Zoev Jho
<p>Is it possible that you came to planet Earth from another star system? Are you here on a special mission to help this planet and its human family shift into a higher vibration by raising the spiritual awareness of those around you? </p> <p> </p> As incredible as it may sound, there are many people on planet Earth today who have a deep, inner knowingness that they may indeed be here as a Starseed. Such individuals are often educated and respected members of society. They can be found in the fields of medicine, law, teaching, the humanities and other walks of life that seem to center around some form of service. <p>Millions of others are in the process of awakening at this very moment. And they too are seriously wondering if they came from the stars. </p> <p> </p> Beginning in 1960's, and continuing for the next 20 years or so, a series of books were published, which contained channeled information from a humble, discarnate messenger called Ra. The first book in the series is called, The Ra Material. <p>Ra's message raises the distinct possibility that there are indeed beings from elsewhere (Wanderers) who are continuing to awaken on planet Earth. To be precise, Ra estimated that 65,000,000 were already incarnate on Earth during the 1960's. </p> <p> </p> Wanderers are described as beings who have evolved to a point of physical and spiritual maturity, which compels them to compassionately reach their hands out to any entities in the universe who call for help. Ra further states that these individuals are from all reaches of the infinite creation. And they are bound together by a common and very singular purpose; to serve those in need. <p> </p> At this moment, planet Earth and its inhabitants fit that description well. We are in great need. That is why the Starseed wanderers are among us. They are here to help us raise our vibrations and those of Earth Mother so that their transformation, prophesized for these times, can take place. <p>This will be accomplished by shifting our awareness from self-centeredness and an over-identification with the material world to a more balanced one that puts far more emphasis on the spiritual. If we do not do this soon, we'll have to start all over as a family of souls until we get it right. Apparently, we've reached this point before during the times of Atlantis. That civilization also over-identified with the greed, pleasures and self-indulgences of the material world, while at the same time ignoring the spiritual aspects of life. </p> <p> </p> During the late 1980's, another book was published called, E. T. 101. It has been out of print for a while. However, you should be able to find a copy here. It ranks among the finest literature I've read that relates to the Starseed experience. LikeThe Ra Material, it is also channeled information and it is THE manual for Starseeds. <p> </p> In essence, E. T. 101 stresses that there are many Starseeds on planet Earth today who were pre-programmed to awaken at this critical moment in time. These awakened Starseeds are here to help Earth and its inhabitants shift into a higher vibrational dimension. And it appears to be imminent. <p> </p> This book describes Starseeds as volunteers from distant star systems, who respond to the cry of help from individuals on planets that are in the process of awakening to their true spiritual nature. Plant Earth and its inhabitants is one of them. <p>After hearing the call, Starseed volunteers came to Earth in earlier times and purposely forgot their real identity and origin. This temporary amnesia allowed them to become dysfunctional humans by taking on all the ego-based, human traits. </p> <p>Today, Starseeds find that their outer and inner worlds are being turned inside out and upside down, which has ignited their awakening process. As the Starseeds gradually remember their true identity and mission, the fear-based thinking they've taken on by becoming an Earthling is being transformed to that which is based upon love. This in turn impacts the entire collective consciousness of this planet in a very positive way. And we are experiencing that shift this very moment. </p> <p> </p> E. T. 101 tells us... <p>"As the old programs of a dying world begin to unravel, you may experience a little discomfort, such as your entire world falling apart. It may be useful during this transition to remember that you are an interdimensional master who is an expert at transmuting crumbling realities. You have done this many times before."</p> <p>This book is a must for anyone who wants to know if they are a Starseed, what's going on, and how to move through your inner changes and mission successfully. In a nutshell, when our entire lives have fallen apart, this book brings hope, understanding and the explanations why. </p> <p>Another book that does the same is, From Elsewhere, by Scott Mandelker, Ph.D.</p> <p> </p> If you have a deep, inner feeling and knowingness that you might be from another star system, don't be frightened. Apparently, there are many here at this moment in time who are part of the same courageous mission. If you have a fascination with the stars, UFO's, ETs, have awakened spiritually, find your life is in turmoil, have an urgent need to be of service to mankind, or any combination of these "symptoms," then you may indeed be from another star system. <p>Take heart, Starseed. You have long endured the human trial and have finally begun to awaken to your true nature and purpose. As you go through your day-to-day struggles, know in your heart that you are transmuting all the negative, dysfunctional patterns you have willingly become by taking on the human form. This is turn makes it easier for those who are human to follow your lead. </p> <p>Although you may not remember it at this time, you agreed to do this to assist the Earth in her birthing process into the Light and to liberate the souls who have lost their way on this planet. That is why you are here. That is your mission of love and service.</p> <p> </p> As always, my words are meant to inspire thought and a sense of wonder about who you really are. Please, in the end, reach your own conclusions by researching the books I've listed below.

Never practice a magickal application that you do not completely understand (it is dangerous to yourself and those around you, and often can not be reversed).
Do not set an unreasonable price on your magickal work for others (some would say no price but we live in a commercial world whereby we need money to survive).
Never use your magickal skills to show off (magick is not a game and is dangerous if 'played with').
Magickal bindings may be foolish, attempt to banish negative energy first (a binding if not done correctly will aslo bind the spell caster to the spell!).
Know that thoughts are things, and what you create in thought will manifest in reality (you create your own reality through your thoughts, so guard them well).
Never lie to yourself, for this is the ultimate epitome of deceit (to thine own self be true!).
Injuries, accidents, sickness, and/or poverty most often manifest as a result of low self-esteem, and negative programming, not from bad mojo or bad magick (fix the mundane first, then and only then use magick).
The practitioner's power grows in direct relation to his or her level of wisdom. Therefore, if someone else threatens you with magick, know that they are without wisdom and their power will only come from your fear (no experienced practitioner wishes to become involved in psychic warfare).
Practitioners should in no way use their personal powers or honed abilities for malefic (negative) purposes, unless they are attacked or need justice formulated from the Universe for defense in the manner most suitable to the attack. It is their responsibility to defend themselves and others (and doing so should only be IF one understand and accepts the payment required for such actions).
Always do the best you can, to the best of your abilities at that time - which does not mean you must fulfill the role of 'Super Witch'. (be yourself and be proud of your acomplishments - but accept that you are still human)
As long as you are working in accordance with a positive belief system, do not worry about what other people are saying about you or your religious path. Know that they are just afraid of the unknown and they are without the complete understanding of what your religion is all about (be aware there will always be someone who will knock your choice of Path. Be proud to be Pagan and do not let another sway you from your chosen path).
Do not loan your Book of Shadows to anyone. Other people who are genuinely interested in the Pagan/Wiccan religion may read it and copy your information under your direct supervision and guidance, however, your Book of Shadows is sacred to you and must NEVER leave your sight (a hard lesson learned for me with that one - a certain Covener - you know who you are - stole my Book of Shadows - which was spiritually and psychically guarded....so if they want the crap to stop happeneing to them they will return it!)
Property that is owned by Wiccans should be guarded as both mundanely and spiritually (see also above!).
Do nothing that will endanger anyone inside or outside of the Pagan/Wiccan Path (such as tell someone outside of a Coven real names of Coveners), or which will bring them into conflict with the Laws of the Land, or any of our persecutors. In this regard, it is NEVER permissible, in any dispute involving the Craft, to invoke any laws other than those of the Craft, nor may any tribunals be held other than the one consisting of a High Priest, a High Priestess, and/or the Elders. (What happens within Paganism should stay within the Pagan Community - however this does not include any activity which contravenes the law of the land (eg assult or rape) in which case it is the responsability of every Pagan to ensure such instances are reported to the police)
Although magick can be considered a science, its use should be viewed as sacred, because magick represents the greatest gift given to us by Spirit. When first learning, one should work all magicks and rituals within the confines of a magick circle, since the beginning student may not understand the nature of the force they are working with (this of course id dependant upon the Path and Tradition one has chosen as not all Paths use the Magick Circle).
A High Priest or Priestess does not sleep with their students!, (unless your student is your husband, wife, or life partner prior to beginning training). A Pagan will never use sexual extortion on a students for magickal information or self gain (beware of anyone claiming to be a Pagan who claims you are required to have sex with them to be initated - we know there is a person claiming to be a HP in our area who is doing exactly this - he is being dealt with: see law number 14).
Practitioners may teach others about the Pagan/Wiccan religion as long as the place is safe, the student is willing and shows a great potential for magickal practice, the teacher is knowledgeable, and the information being used is available to the public and is not secret to the organization to which he/she belongs (it is considered to be totally innapprpraite to share a Coven's Book of Shadows with non-initated members unless you are the author of the particular piece you are sharing. Permission MUST be sought from the High Priest/ess or Elders to share Coven information with outsiders)
The Thirteen Principles of Wytchecraft
The Thirteen Principles of Wytchecraft
1. We practice Rites to attune ourselves with the natural rhythm of life forces marked by the phases of the Moon and the seasonal quarters and cross-quarters.
2. We recognize that our intelligence gives us a unique responsibility toward our environment. We seek to live in harmony with Nature, in ecological balance offering fulfillment to life and consciousness within an evolutionary concept.
3. We acknowledge a depth of power far greater than is apparent to the average person. Because it is far greater than ordinary, it is sometimes called "supernatural," but we see it as lying within that which is naturally potential to all.
4. We conceive of the Creative Power of the Universe as manifesting through polarity --as masculine and feminine-- and that this same creative Power lives in all people, and functions through the interaction of the masculine and feminine. We value neither above the other knowing each to be supportive of the other. We value sexuality as pleasure, as the symbol and embodiment of Life, and as one of the sources of energies used in magickal practice and religious worship.
5. We recognize both outer worlds and inner, or psychological worlds-- sometimes known as the Spiritual World, the Collective Unconscious, the Inner Planes, etc.--and we see in the interaction of these two dimensions the basis for paranormal phenomena and magickal exercises. We neglect neither dimension for the other, seeing both as necessary for our fulfillment.
6. We do not recognize any authoritarian hierarchy, but we do honor those who teach, respect those who share their greater knowledge and wisdom, and acknowledge those who have courageously given of themselves in leadership.
7. We see religion, magick, and wisdom-in-living as being united in the way one views the world and lives within it--a world view and philosophy of life, which we identify as Wytchecraft.
8. Calling oneself "Wytche" does not make a Wytche-- but neither does heredity, nor the collecting of titles, degrees, or initiations. A Wytche seeks to control the forces within oneself that make life possible in order to live wisely and well, without harm to others, and in harmony with Nature.
9. We acknowledge that it is the affirmation and fulfillment of life, in a continuation of evolution and development of consciousness, that gives meaning to the Universe we know, and to our personal role within it.
10. Our only animosity toward toward any other religion or philosophy-of-life is to the extent that some institutions claim to be "the one true right and only way" and have seek to deny freedom to others and to suppress other ways of religious practices and belief.
11. As Wytches, we are not threatened by debates on the history of the Craft, the origins of various terms, the legitimacy of various aspects of different traditions. We are concerned only with our present, and our future.
12. We do not accept the concept of "absolute evil," nor do we worship any entity known as "Satan" or "the Devil" as defined by the Christian Religion. We do not seek power through the suffering of others, nor do we accept the concept that personal benefits can only be derived by denial to another.
13. We work within Nature for that which is contributory to our health and well-being.
Dream Recall Tips
* Start with the belief that you can and will remember your dreams.
* Place a pad, pencil and pen by your bedside. (Pencil tips can break while pens can run out of ink).
* Try a light pen so you can write your dreams in the dark without having to switch on a lamp.
* You may wish to have a tape-recorder to speak your dream upon waking.
* Reading a good book on dreams 20 minutes before going to bed can help stimulate dream recall.
* Repeat a dream recall affirmation often such as: "I am easily remembering and recording my dreams."
* Write down your dream as soon as you awake. 80 percent of a dream can be lost in as little as 10 minutes.
* Visualize yourself immediately writing down your dream on waking.
* Be as still as possible. Shifting positions in bed is known to reduce dream recall.
* Tell a partner or trusted friend in advance that you will share your dream with them tomorrow.
* Meditating and praying for guidance will put you in the alpha dream state and help increase recall.
* Get a good night's sleep. Dreams get progressively longer peaking in the 6th, 7th, and 8th hours of sleep.
* You will establish the habit of remembering your dreams by journaling them for the next 30 days.
Dream Interpretation Tips
* Start with a sincere intent to learn from your dreams to better yourself and live purposefully.
* What emotional feeling are you left with? Feelings are more accurate and truthful than words in dreams.
* You are made up of 80 percent water. The state of water in your dreams often reflects your emotional state.
* Write a simple story line. Summarize your dream in one sentence and express the main theme.
* Ask: "Why did my soul have this experience? What do I need to understand? What issues need working?"
* Be aware of the events occurring in your life at the time of your dream; especially the day before.
* Remember that dream symbols often have dual opposite meanings. Good dream dictionaries will have both.
* There are three main types of symbols: archetypal symbols, cultural symbols, and personal symbols.
* Review all your dreams at least once a year. You will notice common themes and motifs to help guide you.
* Act on your dreams: call or visit someone, pick up a book, watch a movie, wear clothing from your dreams.
* Dream application leads to dream interpretation. By applying your dreams the full meaning reveals itself.
In my book, "Psychology of the Hero Soul," I mention 7 keys to accessing the unknown for enriching and positively transforming one's life. Dreamwork is one of those keys. If this topic fascinates you, then I highly recommend Dr. Marina Quattrocchi's Dreamwork course. For information about her workshops and dream therapy sessions, call 416-246-0123.
I sincerely believe Dr. Quattrochi is doing an excellent job of helping people harness their dreams. In this sleep-deprived, dream-deprived world, helping people to honor their dreams will bring healing and wholeness to the planet.
In her book, "Dreamwork Uncovered," Dr. Quattrochi mentions the fascinating culture of the ancient Senoi tribe who lived in the mystic mountains of Malaysia. This mysterious tribe was so advanced that at one period of their existence "there had been no accounts of violent crime for over two hundred years."
Interestingly, dreams played a central role in their culture and every morning family members would share their dreams with each other and consult the village council.
We now live in a world where the village Shaman that brought healing and hope to people is all but killed off. Under the veil of science and technological progress, the world weeps silently. It is time to bring back the lost art of dreaming...
To Stop Nightmares:
Lemon Verbena ( Lippia citriodora )
Place this herb in a pouch and place it under your pillow or place some in your pillowcase to hinder the dream process
Betony ( Betonica officinalis )
Place Betony in a pouch under your pillow while you sleep or inside your pillowcase to block nightmares.
Anise ( Pimpinella anisum )
Place herb in a pouch and hang it on your headboard. Also place some in your pillowcase and under your pillow to halt bad dreams and nightmares
Flax ( Linum usitatissimum ) mixed with Mustard ( Brassica spp. )
Mix a handful of flax with a handful of mustard together and place some seeds on your night stand. Place the rest in a pouch and lay it under your pillow or in your pillowcase
