Sun Goddess of Mental Illness was original Santa Claus

Santa Claus or Father Christmas” is a patriarchal version of what was originally an ancient Reindeer Goddess who was the original Santa Claus.  Long before Santa flew his reindeer across the sky on Christmas Eve, an ancient female reindeer drew the sleigh of the Sun Goddess at the Winter Solstice. The Sun’s return was the Gift. The white-bearded North Polar man who brings gifts at Christmas is a stolen identity.

From the British Isles, Scandinavia, Russia, Siberia, and across the land bridge of the Bering Strait, she was a revered spiritual figure associated with fertility, motherhood, regeneration and the rebirth of the sun -the theme of Winter Solstice.

She is known as Beaivi to the Sammi people of the North. She travels with her daughter Beaivi-nieda through the sky in a vehicle covered in reindeer bones. The Goddesses bringing green plants back in winter for the reindeer to eat.

GODDESS of DEPRESSION and MENTAL ILLNESS 

Beivve the Sun Goddess was prayed to for people who were mentally ill or depressed. The Sami knew correctly that depression and even more serious mental illnesses originated from the lack of sunshine and light during the long dark of the winter.  Beivve restores mental health to those who were going insane because of the continual darkness of the 6-month winter.

We should workship Beivve the Sun Goddess now to help prevent suicide and the familiar depression that occurs during the winter solstice when people get what we call in modern terms SAD seasonally affected disorder. This time of year in the NORTHERN  Hemisphere is depressing and critical, there is much stress at Christmas.

If you are in crisis, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255) or contact the Crisis Text Line by texting TALK to 741741

At Winter solstice butter was also smeared on doorposts as a sacrifice to Beivve, to help her gain strength as she was coming back to grow higher in the sky. 

As a Feminist and pagan I would replace Santa Claus with this original Goddess mythology to restore balance an honor to the earth which so needs it right now.

Sex, power, control Mercury in Scorpio

Mercury in Scorpio October 9- October 30/31.

This is an updated article from October 2017, the last time Mercury was in Scorpio.

 Sex, power and control issues are hotter than hot topics with women speaking out about being raped, sexually abused and assaulted. It is women’s life under a shadowy, power- hungry Patriarchal world where men have dominated women sexually for thousands of years. This is not a secret anymore.

 Sun enters Scorpio on the 23rd in PDT. EDT and GMT joining Venus Retrograde in until the 31st when Venus re-enters her home sign of Libra and Mercury also changes signs. Jupiter is ending his last year in Scorpio in the last degrees also  on November 3rd /4th before entering Sagittarius on Nov 8, 2018. Which is a karmic date. 8/11.

 Halloween is a huge trancing between worlds energy this year. Especially sexy, mentally and romantically and magically oriented.

 In Scorpio A Mercury wired mind communicates its mental needs for sex, power, wealth and control issue. The big essentials. The trickster planet in Scorpio means that our media and messaging will be deep obsessively, intense with the major issues being about all those subjects we can’t let go of but need to.

 TANTRIC SEXUALITY

Tantric sexuality is a very Mercury in Scorpio issue. This is not a current fad. Its an ancient spiritual tradition requiring much yogic and meditation practice. Tantric sex is healing and unites lovers as one physically sexually emotionally and spiritually.

 Dark Minds- Black Ops- Obsessions- Death- Rebirth

We can more easily connect with our own soul’s desires, our psyches and get laser-like insights into our own and other people’s natures.  More sexual secrets will out. 

 Mercury is the MAGICIAN – in the Tarot – thoughts are magic. Mercury is also known as the TRICKSTER indicate how our minds can play tricks on us. It is also the ruler of thieves and merchants. 

It’s the death of old ideas about women’s sexuality that’s happening especially with the recent Kavanaugh appointment in the U.S.

 This energy can be used to transform many old emotional blocks be they sexual, poverty, abundance mentality and abundance, power or lack of it and control issues.

 Mercury in Scorpio governs depth psychology, detective work and deep analysis. Good time to do deep excavation in your shadows. Surgeons and people who need very exacting skills need Mercury in Scorpio. This would be an excellent time to get surgery done. Scorpio governs the reproductive organs, any issues you may have in these areas require your attention.

 Under Mercury’s tour of Scorpio it is a more inward, secretive time compounded by Venus retrograde in Scorpio Spend time alone,.

This is an underlying soul mate energy as the 8th sign also symbolizes transforming into “the other.” 

Yes there will be big power struggles over finances banking and underhanded dealings. Politically and economically this can be a fast little roller coaster of changes of CEO’s and heads of state and policies at this time.

Obsession is a major issue which can be positive but potentially hazardous. It can be a beneficial time to look within and uncover your own hidden motivations.  Transformation is Scorpio energy’s highest goal.

 People born with Mercury in Scorpio have very insightful, deep analysis of the world. They can be mesmerizing speakers. Mercury in Scorpio is like a film noir characteristic.

 Scorpio is a fixed sign of phenomenal willpower. If know that you are walking your souls’ path you should be able to create what you want. “Do what thou wilt and harm none.” Is the whole of the Law. Scorpio energy at its darkest uses, abuses, rapes, torture, puts fear into others, manipulates, and plays with S & M. These topics are already hot and getting hotter.

Be careful not to fall under the spell of any ruthless manipulators at this time. Be carefull not to unconsciously sting others or yourself. Use this time for deep inner transformation in yourself and any relationships with power imbalances. Rise like the Phoenix.

 

S & M is a Scorpio thing. I do not believe it is a healthy choice. Pain is not love. Better go get some deep psychoanalysis and transpersonal healing of your own pain and not inflict it on others or yourself. 

 SUICIDE And OBSESSIVE thoughts

Scorpio magnifies all your feelings and thoughts so be careful of getting gobbled up by demons, your own or the very real demonic forces that exist everywhere around us.  Suicidal thoughts and rates may higher. If you feel suicidal please call a suicide hotline and get hep ASAP. Do not keep your pain and shame a secret any longer. to resolve your pain and transmute it and become stronger.

Sobering thoughts, Sun opposite Saturn

Sad to hear about that tragic London fire and the Republican shooter in Virginia yesterday. He had nothing to do with Bernie Sanders, and he is a lone wolf with anger issues. I am sending blessings of healing for all the victims of all these events who have passed away and who are injured.

Remember the SUN is opposite to SOBERING SATURN in SAGITTARIUS today

Sun opposes Saturn today, stay grounded

The Grim Reaper was always to blame for deaths and trouble in the world. This also affects President Trump whose birthday was the day before. 

It’s a good day to get sober and to look at your life from a very hard realistic POV. Take care fo business, stay grounded.

A battle to the death of words and ideas its whats going on.

It’s good for GEMINI’s especially to grow up and mature. It affects all mutable signs of Virgo and PISCES as well at 24+ degrees.

If you feel depressed today you can sense Saturn’s heavy-duty leaden weight. depression can be a powerful and useful tool. If you suspect that anyone feels suicidal today, make sure you get them help or reach out to them. 

Someone on FB asked what is going on to create this? 

My first answer was that MARS is OUT OF BOUNDS. May 15- June 30th

That means that Mars, the warrior planet is not held back. He is unleashing anger in all of its fiery forms. Even though he began his wild and crazy freedom ride in GEMINI an air sign where he was warring with words. He is now simmering up emotions while he is submerged in motherly Cancer where he is not really happy. 

Mars is moving from 16 Gemini to 16 degrees CANCER While he is out of bounds. Check out where those degrees are in your natal chart. 

MARS will also aspects anyone who has planets at 16-29 degrees GEMINI, SAGITTARIUS,  VIRGO or PISCES.  Mars will aspect anyone with planets between 0-16 degrees of the Cardinal Signs, CANCER, CAPRICORN, ARIES, and LIBRA. 

Mars will square Jupiter on June 24/25, trines Neptune on June 25th/26, and conjuncts Mercury on June 28. By the time Mars opposes Pluto on July 2, it will be back inside the “normal” limits of declination determined by the Sun’s upper limit. That’s probably good news.

Mark down July 2 on your calendars as this is when Mars opposes Pluto. Mars will be back in bounds, inside the “normal” limits of declination. Which is somewhat helpful.

Thank you to Tony Howard of Steven Forrest Astrology for doing the main research about the degrees of Mars out of bounds.
