Blood Moon Eclipse, Fire Goddess Initiation

A shorter version of the article is posted on COSMIC INTELLIGENCE AGENCY website: I’m Agent 129, Tara Greene. http://www.cosmicintelligenceagency.com/2015/09/aries-full-moon-meditation-on-the-fiery-goddesses/
Mars rules the sign of Aries and thus this eclipse. Mars is newly in Virgo where he is in Virgin Goddess territory, a feminine, earthy, intellectual, practical sign. Mars is squaring Saturn, this is a very karmic time and people are tense;- see previous article.

This is the fourth eclipse of 2015 and another Super Moon. Fear not the stories of Armageddon or the state of Israel or anything like that. That fear comes from old Patriarchs and warrior men who seized power 4,000 something years ago and smell that something is up. The old world cultures is dying and a new one is being birthed. The Sun is in Libra and a big theme of this eclipse is a karmic rebalancing between the sexes on the Aries/ me, Libra/ you axis.

Mars is now transformed into an Earth warrior, a defender of the Goddess, a chivalrous Knight in shining armor, battling to save the land, the environment, an eco-warrior, a humble worker bee for the Queen now. The POPE himself just delivered such a message in America. Think of the Knights Templar venturing off to find and protect the Holy Grail.

The eclipse will be entirely visible in all of South America, Cuba and Central America. It will be totally visible in Britain, Spain, Portugal, France, Germany, and parts of Sweden, and East Africa. All the eastern seaboard in Canada and the U.S. will witness the full eclipse. The totality of the eclipse lasts 1 hour and 12 minutes but the entirety is 3 hours and 20 minutes. The countries to see totality are affected the most strongly. The mid- to Western parts of Canada and the U.S. will see the eclipse in progress at moonrise. The eclipse will not be visible at all east of India and in Australia or China and in eastern Russia. This eclipse echoes a past one at similar degrees 18 years ago.

There is a Grand Fire trine composed of Athena the Warrior Goddess in Sagittarius, Uranus in Aries and Venus in Leo. Somethings burning.

The Eclipsed Moon is connected with very strong powerful Feminine Archetypal warrior Goddess energies. The Goddesses are blazingly unstoppably and fearless. The Age of Aries is the beginnings of the Patriarchal Jewish religion. But this time the tables are turning.  The FULL Moon is in Aries conjunct to the South Node, our collective past. The South Node is the black hole of the chart, all light and energy get sucked in and go into that cosmic drain. The old Patriarchal warrior dominator God, split off from Nature and controlling women as a culture is dying.

The Moon being eclipsed will turn blood red, the color of menstrual blood, the Blood of life, which is also the blood that runs in everyone’s veins. The Full Moon is the time of fertility and completion. The Full Moon governs all women’s reproductive cycle, the oceans and our emotions. The ripe ovum is what the Full Moon symbolizes and is on a real physical level. Women’s bodies are always naturally in perfect synchronization with the lunar cycles.

The Moon is conjunct to Asteroid Vesta.  The original Vestal virgins were women who were the Goddess’s sacred hierodules, sacred tantric priestesses. Not the pure chaste patriarchal version at all. Vesta represents focus, dedication and the powers of purification.

The Divine Feminine/the Moon is collectively ripe, ready, and waiting to be fertilized, to conceive, with her own masculine fiery energy. Every man and woman has both an inner contra-masculine and feminine energy. The Moon is self-fertilizing. She can parthenogenically reproduce. This is a very high spiritual training. The Virgin Mary {Virgo} was one of the sacred initiates, a High Priestess of the Goddess who served as a Vestal Virgin and knew how to conceive herself. Also it’s a metaphor.

The Sun is in Libra, ruled by Venus. Libra is the sign of the balance, justice and relationships. Sun is conjunct to the North Node, which creates eclipses. The North Node, our highest spiritual goal is connected to LILITH, the Archetype of the Original woman, pre-patriarchal, pre- Eve. LILITH, like KALI, is The Divine Goddess of all creation, she is free, erotic, and answers to no one but herself, she is uncompromising and both gives birth and brings death as Nature does. Asteroid Goddess JUNO, the Goddess of Feminine Wisdom and Retrograde Mercury are all in a close conjunction with Lilith. We are revisiting some ancient ways of relating.

TRIPLE GODDESS INITIATION

Vesta is a Virgin, a maiden. Juno/Hera is the Mother/wife archetype. Lilith is the Crone aspect. This is the initiation of the Ancient Triple Goddess. Robert Graves wrote about her extensively in his books.

This eclipse is all about bringing us into a new balance, by a trial of fire.  Mars in Virgo is in Square to Saturn in Sagittarius. Like walking on hot coals. We must have faith and trust. It is there. Jupiter in Virgo is opposite Neptune in Pisces also squaring Saturn in Sage. There is a Cardinal cross from Uranus to Pluto we are still in heavy throws of that energy as Pluto just turned direct three days before this eclipse.

RELATIONSHIPS ARE THE HALL MARK OF THE BLOOD MOON ECLIPSE

The Blood Moon is the initiation of the collective into a very sacred experience. As the moon is eclipsed by the earth we will witness an alchemical transmutation of the white Full moon symbolizing, the ripe ovum, milk, or semen, into the blood red menstrual cycle. Life and death come together to create something new. Menstrual blood was originally considered to be the most sacred of substances, the word Taboo, originally meant sacred. It was the substance used to initiate men and women. It was used as a sacred offering because it is a magical, the blood of life and not death. Women were seen to bleed monthly exactly in harmony with the moon and not die. Women are the birth givers, the Goddess who brings forth life. These ancient archetypes do not die just because science comes along and explains it all from its’ singular perspective. That is not the entire story. We are not merely physical beings but spiritual beings, storytellers, myth makers. This eclipse symbolizes the sacrificial blood-letting and a new life cycle starting.

Tibetan Buddhists revere a Red Dakini, a powerful Female Deity whose power is  unrelenting fiery passion towards enlightenment. She is an icon of untamed female freedom. Dakinis are often connected to synchronicity and inexplicable coincidences of fate. Tsultrim Allione wrote in her book, Women of Wisdom, “The dakini appears at crucial moments. These encounters often have a quality of sharp, incisive challenge to the fixed conceptions of the practitioner.”

At this powerful time the old patriarchal stories of women being treated as objects, owned by men, raped and abused as the earth is, is falling away. Many relationships will be tested and end during this next 6 months. Women are coming into their full power as independent beings, owned by no man, strong, initiating and fighting the good fight for the earth, and all her children. Defending women’s rights to reproductive freedom, is a right of the goddess and this will become a huge issue..

The CHANDRA SYMBOL by John Sandbach

“A woman harvesting rose petals to make perfume.”

You have the ability to tune into a spiritual wavelength which simplifies, harmonizes and elevates he atmosphere around you. Your positive loving intentions are a healing balm for yourself and others. To the extent which you can trust yourself all negativity falls away and your path opens clearly before you.
Pleiadian Symbol: Gently a feather falls from the skies, settling on a gigantic pyramid.

 Use these symbols and images in your meditation and let them guide you.

TIBETAN RED DAKINI, VAJRAYOGINI

This is an active movement meditation.

You need to have 4 four candles, two white and two red candles for the four Directions and elements. You will need to be able to make a fire. It would be good to be outdoors under the Full Moon. You can use charcoals and burn incense too. Be careful of using fire indoors. Wear red and white.

Music: strong energetic staccato music, drums, didgeridoo’s. Gabriel Roth’s staccato rhythm would be good. Live drumming is also recommended both men and women/

The South is traditionally associated with Fire in Pagan/wiccan/ Celtic traditions and in the East with the rising Sun in Indigenous North American teachings. Do what works for you.

MEDITATION

Smudge yourself first with cedar sweet grass or sage. Light the candles and call in the four directions, the four archangels and your personal angels and the four elements always moving clockwise.

A Rumi Poem to be read

O Beloved, take me,

Liberate my soul.

Fill me with your love and release me

From the two worlds.

If I set my heart on anything but you

Let fire burn ne from inside.

O Beloved,

Take away what I want.

Take away what I do,

Take away what I need.

Take away everything

That takes me away from you.

Gaze into the fire. Semi-close your eyes.  Breathe in and out three times deeply and naturally. Call upon the Triple Goddesses, Vesta, Juno and Lilith to be with you and guide you.  I would be standing up and allowing your body to move in what’s called authentic movement.  Just wait, if you have music or drums just let your body be moved by the beat and rhythm. As this is a grounding of the masculine fire energies, concentrate on your root chakra and feel it expanding, heating up and opening. This eclipse energy will be very strong. Just let it move you.

If you are a woman, how do you feel about your menstrual cycle? Is there shame attached to it?

If you are bleeding on this blood moon, then take out your tampons or menstrual pads and allow yourself to bleed freely into the earth. This is a very powerful way of mimicking the Blood moon. Feel how sacred and connected your body is with the cosmos. Honor yourself as a sacred being. Allow the sense of healing, acceptance, strength and pride in your most natural and most feminine physicality and spirituality.

Menopausal women also carry their blood within them. Remember when you were a maiden. Remember the energy. Belly dancing would be great.

If you have been a victim of sexual abuse or rape, this is the perfect time to vent your righteous anger safely by dancing and screaming it out. Releasing the anger makes way for new energy.

See yourself being transformed from a passive victim, doormat or object into an empowered person. Call upon those Warrior Goddesses. The Morrigan, Brigantia, Pele, Oya, Nike, Freya, Eris or the Vajrayogini, above to empower you to make you strong. Sing/ chant “Warrior Goddess, Warrior Goddess come to me.” over and over.

Once you tune into the fire power of the Triple Goddess and let that energy move through you, you should be feeling very strong, empowered and ready to take on anything. Be joyous, happy and feel liberated. It’s all good. Fear not. The power and the fury of the Goddess is what the patriarchy fears the most. Be a lioness, a mother bear, a ferocious dragon.

Your instincts will know what is ethically right to protect and defend. The Moon symbolizes memories, the blood moon will reveal all of your unconscious memories and instincts. Recollect them use them as your guide.

At the end of the ceremony. Thank all the spirits and elementals and Goddesses or Gods who showed up. Dismiss the direction in clockwise order. Put out your candles or fire.

Initiate a new activity, focus and project using your feminine Fire Power. Let me know how you are doing. These Goddess Archetypes live through us.. 

Many Blessings, Tara
