The North Node of the Moon moves backwards through the Zodiac every 18+ months. These Nodes are extremely important as they create Solar and Lunar elcipses four to five times a year every year. These Nodes are very ancient in Astrology, going back thousands of years. The North Node is called the Dragon’s Head and the South Node, the Dragon’s Tail. The North Nodes is the Cosmic GPS or North Star energy which symbolizes the collective’s highest spiritual goal. Everyone has their own personal North Node position in their birth chart.

The North Node symbolizes what we need to evolve into like a plant following the sun. The next 18 months under the watery emotional nurturing sign of the Mother indicates women being a guiding force. The Divine Feminine energy is returning. The protection of children and families, real estate {homeland} food safety and Water will be primary. The Sign of Cancer is the 4th sign and signifies the I.C. Latin for Imum Coeli meaning “bottom of the sky.”

The Sign of Cancer in the tarot is Card #7 The Chariot

This card indicates the need for understanding cycles, there are 7 days of the week, chakras, a time for the tide to rise and ebb. This card relates to the need for emotional and psychic protection. It is also a card of Victory. We need to feel that we are emotionally in the driver’s seat not being spun around on the wheel of karma.

If you have your North Node in Cancer or your South Node in Cancer at birth these next 18 months will be pulling you to make major choices about family, your ancestors, your own family, childhood, nurturing, home, and what makes you feel safe emotionally as your highest goal.

The 4th house/ Cancer influence means people will be increasingly working from home, mothers will prefer to stay at home, rather than work outside or at all. No more fast Foods. People will be opting for a more simple home cooked traditional ” comfort food” with memories from their childhoods. Traditional feminine values will be strong. Water and food purity will be important. Respecting your ancestors and roots will be honored.  A more traditional time of sharing feelings and nurturing each other. Homes will be simpler and warmer. 

The last times the North Node was in Cancer was 2000-2001, 1982-1983, 1962-1964, and 1944-45. This is a general rule you need to look up your specific North Node position. 

Water signs Scorpio and Pisces will get beneficial aspects from the transiting trines. Look at where the entire 30 degrees of Cancer is in your natal chart. Remember the North Node moves from 30 degrees down to zero from the last to the beginning of the sign.

This is just a brief intro I’ll follow up with more details soon.

That’s a pretty magical SEVENTH HEAVEN, Crown chakra activation day.

The Number 7 has very powerful significance. 

There were 7 major classical planets upon which the entire symbolism of the number 7 is built. It’s always about Astronomy. 

There are 7 days of the week, each one named for a planet, the Moon or the SUN. 

There are 7 colors in the rainbow. The 7 musical notes are also all related to the planets.

There are 7 major chakra centers in the human body and 7 orifices in the human face, seven ages of man.

There are 7 deadly sins, 7 seas, 7 continents. There are 7 Heavens and Hells’ classically. 

7 is considered to be a lucky number. In the Zohar, the seven lower sefirot are those aspects of God that are present in asiyah, the world of action on the Tree of Life.

In the Major Arcana of the TAROT Number 7 is THE CHARIOT

It is related to the sign of Cancer, which is about mothering, emotions, nurturing, nourishment, home, the womb, childhood and emotional security and safety. 

In HEBREW GEMATRIA

Seven is one of the greatest power numbers in Judaism, representing Creation, good fortune, and blessing. A Hebrew word for luck, gad, equals seven in gematria. Another Hebrew word for luck, mazal, equals 77. The emphasis on seven continues in practice with seven wedding blessings, seven circuits performed around a groom, and seven days of mourning after the death of a close relative. Events, prayers, and esoteric observances that involve multiples of seven are also common. Natural and supernatural entities (angels) are often grouped by sevens (I Enoch 20; II Enoch 19). Seven is a factor in many occult elements and events.  Seven is also the preferred number in spells, magic squares, amulets. –http://www.myjewishlearning.com/article/judaism-numbers/

THE 7th or CROWN CHAKRA activation

The 7th or Crown chakra is located at the top of the head. The Sahaswara, in Sanskrit symbolized by a thousand petalled lotus, connects us to receive the One mind, our Higher Selves, the Godhead or Infinite intelligence, known as the state of Enlightenment. Medieval paintings of Jesus with a golden halo represents this crown chakra activation. Western Mystics also called this state of awareness the 7th Heaven. True opening of the 7th chakra means the realization that you are pure awareness, pure consciousness, undivided, and all expansive. 

Practical tools for aligning with the 7th chakra

Opening the 7th chakra enables us to Ascend beyond the 3rd dimension into the realms of the 5th Dimension and beyond into vast new awareness. The Solfeggio tone is 963 Hz. And the Key of B

Gemstones to aid in opening the 7th chakra. Moldavite, sugalite, amethyst, clear quartz crystals and diamonds. Its symbol is the thousand eyed peacock.

Essential oils: Lotus, jasmine, sandalwood, frankincense, myrrh, benzoin, neroli, angelica, lavender,

CLEANSE using sage, Palo Santo, myrrh, copal, juniper, and frankincense

This is the most powerful of all the chakras. We must be very, very grounded to connect to this highest chakra. Be careful, your ego must surrender fully to allow only divine will to guide you.

Breathe, and continuously chant the sacred sound OHM to begin.
MEDITATE on accessing pure love and the White LIGHT of Source.
Your intention to open your crown chakra will begin the process. There are different ways to visualize this. Bring your attention to the top of your head and visualize it opening like an observatory and see, sense and feel your head open to receiving Divine Light.

In meditation on this article I received this image and it fits in with the symbolism of the Chariot. All babies are instinctively motivated to drink their mother’s milk for sustenance and survival. Picture the crown chakra opening as a newborn baby’s mouth. All the stars in the Galaxy were considered by the Ancient Egyptians to be drops of the Great Mother’s breast milk spilled across the sky. That is why it is called the Milky Way galaxy.

Imagine that you are suckling on the sweet milk from the galaxy itself as the unconditional milk of loving kindness. This will put you in a state of Bliss and oneness. If you’ve ever nursed a baby or seen one nursing you will know what this bliss is like.

Open yourself from deep surrender in trust to Love, to the One, to becoming whole again. Stay in this meditation for as long as you like. It should become a daily practice. Then we must embody and live in an enlightened state of unity consciousness.

Use this special numerology day to feel how the universe has order and meaning. It is a day of balance, order and feeling our connection as vibrations, and to open all of our chakras in a rainbow colored display of beauty.

Midsummer Rituals, fairies and witches

Fairies, Midsummer, Tara Greene

Midsummer Eve by Edward Robert Hughes Watercolor & gouache on paper 1908

June 20/21st is the Peak of the Sun’s Light, the Masculine FIRE in the Northern Hemisphere. At the day of the longest light and the shortest night of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. we turn with the Wheel of Time and the Natural Year. The shift begins now to the shortest Days of Light. the FEMININE force ascendS until winter solstice. And round and round the seasons go. 

Litha: St. John’s Day, Summer Solstice  begins at 12:24 am EDT/ 4:24 a GMT

The SUN enters CANCER, the 4th sign, cardinal water. In the Tarot, it is associated with Major Arcana #7 THE CHARIOT> 

The Fire Festival of Litha

Midsummer’s Eve was believed to be a time when the veil between this world and the next is at its thinnest and when fairies were thought to be at their most powerful. Shakespeare’s famous play is based on ancient pagan beliefs. Party in the woods with some magic mushrooms round the Holly Tree. 

Fairies, magic mushrooms, midsummer,witches,  Tara Greene

Midsummer/ Summer Solstice is the most powerful day of the year for the Sun Gods. Fire is the predominant element in the celebration. Fire is spirit, action, and passion. Balefires have always been lit on hilltops since very ancient times and still are to provide magical aid to the dying Sun and also used to drive out evil and to bring fertility and prosperity to the people, crops, and herds.  Stonehenge is the most widely known of these ancient calendrical markers. The heel stone marks the midsummer sunrise as seen from the center of the great stone circle.

Magical Aspects

A candle should be lit for the entire day, especially if it is cloudy or raining. The fire represents the Sun and is a constant daily reminder of the power of the Source. Rituals should be performed at noon when the sun is highest and strongest. Many pagans initiate protective amulets which become empowered over the Midsummer balefire. 

MIDSUMMER MANIFESTATION RITUALS

From Hearth and Home Witchery

“Make a list of everything you wish to manifest during the next six months. Be complete — include things related to career, personal issues, and other factors like clarity, confidence, and fun. After sunset, light a candle of your choice. Place a vase of flowers you like next to the candle.

Say aloud:

“I gather in the power of this day of greatest light and call in the guardians of fire, earth, air, and water to bring the last grace of power in light to manifest my desires in the coming harvest. I ask that this be

Read aloud your list

“I affirm that I am able and willing to allow these wishes to manifest and I participate in the miracle of
creation and with faith. So mote it be.”

Allow the candle to burn until you go to sleep. Celebrate the energy of the evening in some way –play music, raise a glass, allow yourself some indulgence. ” -From Hearth and Home Witchery

I found this next one on ravenandcrone.com

Ring of Fire Spell 
 “This spell is based on a little-known solar ritual from the Aegean islands. Long ago on the night before the Summer Solstice, hoops were set ablaze, and the villagers would guide the Sun’s return by jumping
through rings of fire. You can create your own ring of fire with this spell. At dusk, outdoors if possible, light four candles of the appropriate color, one for each season, in a circle. In the center place a gold or yellow candle for the Sun. Light the seasonal candles and say:

“Seasons must turn,
Let the Sun return.”

Light the Sun candle and say:

“Shining One,
Charge me with passion,
Turn my words into action.
It must be!”

Jump over your lit candles if you dare. Meditate on each Season and Thank the Sun for its return as you put out the candles.”

Coupling or handfasting

Midsummer is the time to formalize any relationship. Couples that have been together a year and a day since the previous Beltane can make their marriage final. This Sabbat is also an excellent time to renew wedding vows.

Midsummer Incense

Sage, mint, basil, Saint John’s Wort, sunflower, mistletoe (specifically the berries which represent semen), oak, rowan, and fir.

 Litha foods

The Midsummer Moon is also known as the HONEYMOON, where this term originated. Mead is made, a drink considered to be a magical life enhancing drink. Magical baking and charms are created on this special day. Traditionally this festival spans three days. This year it is June 20-23rd.

Elderflowers

Elderflowers peak at Midsummer. Pick them in the fullness of a sunny day, ideally on Midsummer’s Day. The Elder is sacred to the Mother Goddess and is often called the Witch’s Tree, the Elder Mother, or Queen of the Trees. It is protective with wonderful healing properties. It aids transformation, change, and renewal, this drink will aid in transforming your life. You could also drink elderberry juice. 

 Eat Honey Cake

A celebration of a sweet life. If you can source locally produced honey its the best. Wherever it comes from always thank the precious Bees.

 Have a Happy Summer or Winter.
