Major Solar healing portal, How to create an altar

Dec 9 The Sage Sun is squaring Chiron in Pisces today. @ 2:03 am PST/ 5:03 am EST/ 10:03 am UT

The SUN is at the 17th degree of Sagittarius and this square opens us up to receive the Light source channel for SOULAR healing with Chiron.  The MOON is Void of Course so it’s also perfect for doing healing work, and creating an altar as a portal for spiritual focus.

The Moon enters Sagittarius at 2:25 pm PDT/ 5:25 pm EST.

The Omega symbol by John Sandbach is so beautiful and perfect for today’s aspect.

“Sagittarius 17. A flame dancing at the top of a man’s head.  Manifesting/Sensitive

Degree Angel: Hahahel (HA-ha-HEL) Self-Esteem, Mission

This degree lives in a state of being constantly reminded of source, of the spiritual light from which all has been generated.

It realizes that no matter how diverse or in conflict the world of phenomenality may seem, that all is ultimately One, and that union with the light is a fact which we only need acknowledge to dispel darkness.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A monkey dressed in a brocade coat.” The monkey is dressed in a refined and sophisticated garment but beneath that garment he is wild, playful, and free. This degree often clothes itself in outer trappings that are unlike its true nature. This is a means of hiding, when needed, as well as taking on roles just to imagine what it would be like to be something else very different from the Self.

It is good to be a light in the world,  just as the man of the Omega Symbol has become like a candle. His flame is not steady – it dances, and as it dances at his crown chakra what is signified is the highest most spiritual type of play. Life is always and eternally joyful, and only becomes serious when we lose contact with this truth.

Pleiadian Symbol: Sunlight flooding an altar covered with flowers.

Azoth Symbol: In a fireplace a fire flares up for a moment and a baby phoenix hops out of it.”

Visualize this image and let the baby phoenix hop into your lap. Hold it gently and keep it warm and safe. It will imprint on you. Make it a nest in your heart.

“Seed degree: Libra 21. The sea as still as a mirror. (Omega Symbol). When inner stillness is achieved, our whole being lights up (the flame at the top of the man’s head).” My Natal Neptune/Venus conjunction is at this degree. 

Visualize yourself sitting next to a sea {Pisces} as still as glass. Listen to the sea but see it as stilled. Allow the kundalini energy to spark up your spine. If you get a chill, that is a form of spiritual clearing.

Be a candle in this world. 

“A magician wearing a live snake for a belt. (Chandra Symbol). Enveloped in wisdom (the snake) we are then free to play with outer forms (the monkey in the brocade coat).”

I am sending this message to my dear friend and Snake Priestess mentor Kathleen in California whose birthday it is today. Happy Birthday. What an amazing synchronicity.  

“Fulfillment degree: Leo 22. A giant temple with many layers. It is in the shape of a mountain. (Omega Symbol). When we focus on the highest, (the flame at the top of the man’s head), the harmony of the highest shines down through all other levels of our being.”

HOW TO CREATE AN ALTAR

Create an altar for healing and magic

My altar, with crystals, Kunzite, Turquoise,tektites, amber, statue of Ganesha, and more

An altar is a place of magic, an alter is an alternate place.

 An altar can be as simple as a separate space set up on your table or in a corner of your room. It is best to create a permanent alter or mesa, which becomes a sacred space to only do prayer, meditation and focussed spiritual and energy work. You can make a low shelf into an altar. Cover it with beautiful fabric. Place photographs or art works of spiritual teachers, or sacred geometry of the Flower of Life, candles and crystals which will hold the desired energies. You can change you altar to suit your needs.

You must always use smudge, incense or Holy Water to cleans your altar and yourself  before  beginning any kind of spiritual work. Light a candle and state you are awake and open to receive the Light. I always call in the 4 Archangels,the four elements and directions for grounding and protection. I also call in the as above, the so below, mother earth, Pachamama, and then lastly, the within, The heart. This is the most ancient way of meditating and doing spiritual alignments.  Call in the SOLAR LOGOS to heal your self and the world. Call upon your higher master teachers to teach you wisdom, peace clarity. The Solar Logos or Light Word is Rudolph Steiner’s word, it feels appropriate to me. Meditate on the images of the symbols. Be patient. Breathing is the most important way. Focus on opening your chakras one by one.  Still the mind and receive. 

Always thank and then release all the energies, entities, elementals, direction and angels who have come to your sacred space.  

MERCURY enters Capricorn @ 6:34 pm  PST/ 9:34 pm EST

Our minds will get grounded practical and down to serious business. That’s good we need this now.

Lovers Full Moon Meditation November 25

The Full Moon on November 25, is @ 3+ degrees Gemini, Wednesday @ 10:44 pm UT/5:44 pm EST/ 2:44 pm PST

This is a powerful Full Moon of Embodying the Lovers of the World or the world lover. Are you one?.

The constellation of Gemini was imagined as twin human brothers and the battle between opposites, the twins is an ancient archetypal symbol in almost every culture. Gemini literally symbolizes the twin halves of the brain and our two lungs. We also live in an apparently dualistic universe. Everything has its opposite, day/night, south/north, male/female, yin/yang, heaven/earth, light/dark. good/evil At this Full Moon at 3+ degrees Gemini, Wednesday UT @ 10:44 pm we have definitely reached a fulcrum of the Us vs Them conversation.

GEMINI is the first Air sign and symbolizes the first breath of life at birth. Gemini is consciousness itself, communication, thinking and information.

GEMINI is associated with the Trump Card

#6 THE LOVERS

Gemini is ruled by the Planet MERCURY, or Hermes, a hermaphrodite, {Hermes/Aphrodite] is dual sexed. Mercury is the Mercurial, fleet-footed winged messenger of the Gods. As Hermes he is THOTH to the Egyptians who taught humankind the secrets of immortality and to whom the famous “As above, so below.” maxim is attributed. Mercury rules Wednesday. Mercury is also known as a Trickster in mythology, and is known as Coyote in Native American tails. Does your mind play tricks on you?

In the Tarot, Air is symbolized by swords, which cut through the tangle of distractions. All heroes and heroines must battle with their sword of discrimination, severing Hydra’s heads, battling dragons or negative thoughts.

MERCURY in the Tarot is the 1st Trump the MAGICIAN.

The word magician comes from the root word Magus, Magi, whose root word is Image, imagination. The Magician/Mercury is everyone’s internal magic wand. Just like in Harry Potter, your intention, your thoughts/sword, is your mental focus, your consciousness. Combined with desire/intent creates whatever you wish. This the Law of attraction. As you imagine or think, so mote it be. Consciousness is all that is, is everything that exists.

Mercury also rules Virgo and it is the final dispositer of the Full Moon, Jupiter and the North Node. Jupiter and Mercury are in a mutual reception and this placement really helps us to expand our mind/body connection and to stay very grounded and pragmatic amidst all the chaos that we have been feeling lately. Gemini is a mutable sign, adaptable, malleable. These are very changeable times with Jupiter, the North Node, Sun, Saturn, Mercury, Neptune Chiron and the South Node all in Mutable signs. We need to be able to adapt.

This Full Moon has Mercury conjunct Saturn it is a very serious deep think time. The Full Moon is opposed by Saturn and Mercury and in square to Neptune.There are some very serious and mature questions, ideas and choices which need to be made. Saturn and Neptune’s first square the day after this Full Moon really brings to the fore, the illusions, sleight of hand and projections which are communicated by the mass media.

GEMINI‘s who are born May 22-June 1st f any year will get this Full Moon impacting your Sun directly. 

VIRGO ‘s who are born August 24- September 3rd  will also feel the pressure from the Square 

PISCES who are born February 19-March 1st  also get the square/ conjunction pressure. 

SAGITTARIUS who are born November 23- December 1st will get the conjunction/opposition aspect.

LIBRA and AQUARIUS get some benefits from the Full Moons’ air quality. 

But LIBRA  is being quincunxed by Neptune. Beware of being so nice you are a martyr in your relationships.. You may be in a dream about love which is not real.  Watch your alcohol and addictions especially around this full moon. 

SCORPIO born in the first week of the Sign may feel more irritable and torn apparent. 

CAPRICORN‘s born in the first week are also in the quincunx to the Gemini Full Moon and will feel irritated.

ARIES  and LEO  get the pleasant sexy sextile, many new lovers to choose from in you life.

But Leo is being quincunxed by Neptune. Beware all that glitters is not gold, you are being set up like Narcissus to fall in love with your own projection. 

TAURUS and CANCER are inconjunct to the SUN SATURN MERCURY energy and this may make you feel tired, blue, disappointed and cynical. 

Look at where 3 degrees GEMINI and 3-8 degrees SAGITTARIUS and 7 degrees PISCES are in your natal chart to see where the BIG stand off between the ILLUSION And the Dream are for you.

Which side of the looking glass are you on?

ORACLE SYMBOL

The 4th degree of Gemini according to the Omega symbol by John Sandbach is:

“From a mountain, people watch a tsunami”

You can often feel what is coming- how the energy is going to move or change, and because of this you can put yourself in the place you need to be to either protect yourself from it, or use it to maximum benefit. You need to find the right context in which to share your ideas and not try to relate them to those who aren’t receptive.”

“CHANGE is the point. If it comes at us, we need to take the high road to the mountain to see the overall meaning and significance of it, if we choose it and go to the island, we need to be sensitive to the rightness of the timing of our adventure.’

Pleiadian Symbol:” A magician searching for rare herbs.
Azoth Symbol: “A man who can see through the eyes of a high-flying bird.”

The synchronicity of the Magician is very important as it is Mercury. The high-flying bird is always an Eagle, a bird of Spirit. Think about these symbols and what they say to you during the meditation.

MUSIC: wind instruments. Carlos Nakai Native American flute music. https://youtu.be/EaCCxtL2rAE

Begin by smudging yourself first. Light your candles. One for each direction. I always work EAST to SOUTH to WEST TO NORTH. Always move clockwise. Call in the four elements and the four direction into your sacred circle.

Call in the four Archangels, Michael, Gabriel, Ariel, Raphael in the same order.
Center yourself by breathing, sit or lie down, close your eyes.

Sit upright. Begin to breathe, slowly, naturally and deeply. Let all your thoughts dissipate as you breathe in and out. Pay attention to your breath moving in through your nostrils filling up your lungs and then being released as your lungs empty, breathing out through your mouth. Pause after you exhale for a few seconds then slowly breath in for the count of four and be aware of the air, pneuma, the breath entering your lungs and filling them. The deeper you breathe, the more oxygen enters your body and brain. This expands your consciousness and awareness. The more air comes into your body the more your entire body relaxes.

Be aware of your solar plexus, this is the 3rd chakra, the MANIPURA, meaning jeweled city. Seed symbol is Ram. Vowel Sound is Ah.

This chakra is like a blazing yellow SUN. This is your spiritual will center. Two fingers-width below your navel, extending your will out into the cosmos. Feel your 3rd chakra lighting up, getting brighter, sunnier, and glowing. Keep doing deep mindful breathing as your mind gets emptier and emptier.

This chakra also related to the 5th Visuddha. Seed symbol is HAM. Vowel Sound is EEEEE.

Keep breathing naturally and deeply, and begin to use your breath to sound, chant or sing. Sounding is very healing. Sound the Vowels for the 3rd and 5th chakra.

Then beginning by sending your breath down your spine to your root chakra. Sense being rooted to the earth and work up through each chakra one at a time until you get to the crown chakra whose colour is white. The thousand petalled lotus.

As you sound and fill your lungs with more breath, breath after you have reached your crown chakra then send the breath down your spine and through each chakra through your root chakra into the earth. Send it past the rocks, and crystals, deep down into the very center of Mother Earth. Feel the connection of your breath to the fire and earth and water elements of the earth. Then bring your attention back up from the earth through the root chakra back into your lungs.

CALLING the Angels

Call upon the Archangel Raphael to bring healing into wherever you need it in your mind and thoughts. Look at what choices you have made and how they have put you where you are in your life now.

Mercury travels between the realm of the Gods and Goddesses, Your Higher self and you. Ask him the major questions you need to further your progress. Ask Mercury if he has any messages for you. Ask Mercury to tune up your mind, to have it work clearer, purer, and to hear directly the conversation with your Guardian Angel.

To embody the Archetype of Gemini through the Lovers.

By marrying your masculine and feminine side you become whole. Become aware of the right hand being associated with your logical masculine side connected to the left side of your brain. Then become aware of your left hand being connected to your intuitive, emotional feeling, feminine right side of your brain.

Bring both your hand together and clasp your fingers together. This physically and mentally combines both sides of your brain and makes you into a hermaphrodite. Bring your intertwined fingers up to your mouth and lower your head. This is a prayer position. From this place of prayer and unity, feel how you are whole, united, you have both masculine and feminine within. The Lovers is about self-love, wholeness, Oneness. Feel this Inner Lover. Feel your love for them and them for you. Give and receive. This is the unconditional love of the Beloved. Rumi wrote thousands of love poems once he felt the presence of the Beloved within. When you do this magical inner work with your Beloved, love appears everywhere around you. With this knowledge you can go into the world and speak love, discriminate with love. Be a Lover in the world.

At this Full Moon give be Grateful and give thanks for all you have in your life, say it aloud. Come out of your meditation. Write down whatever images, gifts, words, sensation came to you. Stay with this energy over the next two weeks until the New Moon in Sagittarius.
