Mahala – Empower Yourself, Empower Our World – 22 April 2015

MahalaBy Mahala, on April 21st, 2015

Guest article by Mona @ www.sacredreconnections.com.

Recently many people have been asking me about how these changes can work when they feel lost, or stuck. I say that you really are not lost, or stuck, even though it feels like that! Truthfully, you are in transition and as with any shift, even with diets, we hit a plateau. In the world of internal change, this can feel stuck or lost. Recognizing anything is called an “A-HA” moment. When we recognize an internal sadness or discomfort, we can begin to see that it’s time for change. It’s important to feel what we are experiencing. That alone can change the old cellular patterns just by acknowledging that you’re ready to move forward, and sometimes that comes with the sensation of feeling alone, lost, stuck, unaccepted, disappointed with life, not understood, etc. If we are able to shift the perspectives as we feel these emotion, we will feel the internal support that will get us through these ominous times.

Mahala – Alison McCabe : Hygeia – 17 April 2015

Mahala – Planet Alert April 2015 – 30 March 2015

MahalaWe have another full moon lunar eclipse coming up on April 4, 2015 at 5:05 AM PDT. This will be the third red blood moon in the series of four. The last one will be on September 27, 2015. On the second one, which was on October 8, 2014 we started weaving our light bodies because the moon was on 15 degrees Aries, and weaving our light bodies is what that degree means.

What my Sabian Symbol book says about that degree is “The I Ching symbol implied is the profound task of the weaving of our immortal body, the cosmic Robe of Glory. There is a moment in every cycle when, to however small a degree, every individual may be confronted with the potentiality of a fulfilling act of self-realization and may find himself/herself clothed in light”. I believe this past October full moon was the beginning of a major process of Ascension for many of us. Continue reading

Mahala – ‘The Ugly Duckling Becomes An Eagle’ Eclipse – 28 March 2015

MahalaBy Mahala, on March 26th, 2015

Guest Article by Alison McCabe (astroalison@gmail.com)

Seven of us heard the call to go to the Orkney Islands to witness the Total Solar Eclipse from the oldest and one of the largest Neolithic sites in Britain dating to 5000BC. The Stones of Stenness is where our journey began calling the Ancient Animal guardians of Britain; Cernunnos the Great Stag in the East, Epona the White Horse in the South, Mona the Sacred Cow from the Isle of Angelsey in the West and Artor the Bear in the North.

Mahala – The Goddess Asteroids – Nurturing The New Seedling – 11 March 2015

Here is a new article by the Astrologer Alison McCabe (astroalison@gmail.com).

In the warm, glow of the Central Sun

A seed is stirring again, urgently seeking life

Cracking open in its intense desire for rebirth.

In 1965 a new seed activated at the last Uranus Pluto conjunction. This was a time of great transformation, especially in America, with anti-war protests, women and gay liberation and a refusal of people to play by the same old rules. Dane Rhudyar wrote an important article at this time which can be read at www.khaldea.com/rudhyar/astroarticles/worldcrisis_19651966.php.

There is also an energetic connection between 1966 and 2014 in Chinese Astrology being both Year of the Horse.

There are three important issues in Dane’s article which are relevant to us right now as we approach the portal of a new cycle at the Total Solar Eclipse, Spring Equinox and contemplate how we go about integrating and healing the Goddess energies. He links the Uranus Pluto square socially and astrogically with the previous conjunction which happened in 1850-51. This too was a profound time of transformation as the Industrial Revolution in Europe gradually sucked more and more people away from the land and nature into a noisy, dirty machine which benefits only 5 per cent of the people in the world, mostly living in the West. The system requires a very linear, left brain approach to life where we are all encouraged to fight over one pie, even to the death, and buy into the survival of the fittest rather than the overall well being of the earth and the human race in all its diversity and splendor. Industrialization went onto fuel colonialisation which has created another layer of trauma for human beings.

Whilst we have made some inroads into challenging inequality in the world as a whole, for deeper transformation to take place we need to challenge the foundation of many structures we take for granted and be open to an alternative. Not communism as this turned out to be as disempowering for humanity as capitalism, but a Middle Way guided by Aquarian principles of inclusiveness. The way that indigenous people live in harmony with nature could provide some important clues though we cannot ever return to where we were and must also embrace new technology as part of this revolution.

Secondly we notice that the same secondary planets are involved in both Uranus Pluto conjunctions which are Mars, Jupiter and Saturn and this is also the case now. Finally in 1851 the cross of changes was in Fixed signs, in 1966 in Mutable signs and right now at the Uranus Pluto square in the Cardinal signs which has the most potential for change. These particular planets are very important because they are the pathway from personal to collective evolution via the asteroid belt. If we imagine the Goddess Asteroids as huge stepping stones crossing a river of life then in a sense we all must have the courage again to play on these stone’s like children in order to have the power and strength, combined with love and mercy, needed to transform the underlying structures of society which do not support our spiritual evolution as a whole. There is no God or Goddess who is going to arrive from the clouds to help us change things. The change will only come when we believe in our own capacity as creators and choose to start again, this time including everybody across the globe.

The Goddess archetypes are energies we encounter in ourselves which can strengthen and enliven both women and men. It was long mathematically predicted by the Titius Bode Law that a body might be found between Mars and Jupiter and so in 1800 a group of 30 European Astronomers nicknamed TheCelestialPolice were given 15 degrees of the zodiac to hunt for this invisible body. In a very patriarchal way they were determined to bring the universe to order. It always delights me greatly that Ceres, the first goddess to be discovered, was so by Piazzi an independent Monk Astronomer from Sicily who named her after the patron saint of his city. As in mythology it appears Ceres broke away from the gods of Mount Olympus in disgust.

Ceres the Mother Goddess represents the foundation of human life which is the security, physical care and nurturing provided usually by our mother which has a profound effect on our ability to relate to and trust other human beings. Learning to love is therefore for many people an issue of rewiring neural pathways that were not formed in those early days, ideally through eye contact with a mother breastfeeding. When we truly comprehend the importance of a mother and father’s ability to nurture to the well being of society we would cease to see this as a private matter and direct all manner of support, education and resources to assist this situation.

I was fascinated to notice also that Prince George was born with the Ceres Vesta conjunction bang on his ascendant and he was born just on the cusp of Cancer/Leo. Considering his life in relation to other Royal babies he has spent his first years with his parents as nature intended and not primarily looked after by nannies. Princess Diana started this trend insisting that she read to her children a bed time story and bathe them. In my Astro Mum and Baby group there was also a baby boy born with Ceres Vesta on his ascendant and his Mum was training to be a midwife, wanting to reintegrate the sacred back into this role which felt too like a perfect expression of the Goddess energy surrounding the child.

Vesta was the Fire Priestess who once had high status in Roman society and was considered a vital transmitter between the Divine and the State. Being female was seen as essential for this task perhaps because her right brain was naturally more dominant. However by 500AD priestesses are outlawed altogether in Rome and all major religions preach that women are too impure and irrational to be conduits of God. Most importantly the centre of spiritual life is moved from the hearth in the home to a church controlled by a priest and therefore out of reach of all but a privileged few who made and agreed the rules of the game.

Vesta and Ceres travelled together for much of 2014 in Libra along with the North Node signaling their powerful part in transforming human destiny. “Spirit is in you and in your home not in any outside agent or building” is her teaching. A challenged Vesta in the birth chart often indicates the need to heal inner fears about ones spirituality, for example if the parents or culture were very rigid in their religious views or from past life persecution.

Pallas Athena the Warrior Goddess was conjunct the Partial Solar Eclipse on the 23rd October 2014 joining the Sun and Moon in their alchemical marriage at 1 degree Scorpio. Pallas represents women in leadership positions creating the vision and civic structures for the new society. Significantly at the Total Solar Eclipse at the Spring Equinox 2015 and the Third Blood Moon eclipse on the 4th April she is transiting the Galactic Centre. Thus this is a peak time to align with the evolutionary power of the Warrior Woman with the vision of the whole of evolution in her heart.

Juno as the Goddess of the Sacred Marriage is also key in these times of many alchemical marriages of the Sun and Moon. At the first Blood Moon eclipse on the 15th April she was conjunct the Sun opposing the Moon, Ceres, Vesta and Mars. Venus and Mars have also been travelling hand in hand passing over the portal of endings and beginning between Pisces and Aries where the Total Solar Eclipse will occur in a few weeks. Its all about the sacred union of male and female everywhere you look.

Whilst this will almost certainly mark an important turning point in male female relations there is a higher ‘inner’ marriage at stake and sometimes in our focus outwardly on relationships we miss our true calling to reunite with our own Spirit. In the Qabalah this 13th pathway between TiphareththeSoul and KethertheSpirit is that of TheMoon (tarot). The symbol is crossing the desert alone on a camel, to be called home to oneself. In such a place of perfect oneness all things become possible.

The waxing square of Uranus and Pluto calls us to take up the challenge, to see ourselves as the Master or Mistress of our own Destiny and that the outcome of the future will be determined by our own efforts as human beings to evolve spiritually and to match this socially. The seed of 1966 is now a seedling still tender but with great promise of life.

Significantly Juno is in an exact conjunction with the Sun in Libra for the final Blood Moon eclipse on the 28th September 2015….perfect for the alchemical marriage within and for renewing our commitment to a beloved other.

I do birth charts specializing in the Goddess and Centaurs and have various Astrology groups in West Yorkshire/Lancashire UK.  I am organizing a trip ‘whale whispering’ and visiting sacred sites on Tenerfie and La Gomera for the final Blood Moon eclipse on the 28th September 2015 so please do email me at astroalison@gmail.com for more details about any of the above.

Mahala – Planet Alert March 2015 – 2 March 2015

MahalaBy Mahala Gayle, on March 1st, 2015

Are you emotionally prepared for the month of March? Mars has moved into Aries, which is a fire sign, and the first couple of weeks Mars will be moving into making an aspect to the Uranus/Pluto square. This energy could become very explosive so please keep your cool. This will be the seventh and final Uranus/Pluto square. This energy will affect our heads, brains, and crown chakra because that is what the sign of Aries rules. The Sun will be moving through the emotional sign of Pisces until March 20th; our emotions will be greatly affected by this emotional fire energy. Continue reading

Mahala – Life In Perspective – 26 February 2015

MahalaBy Mahala, on February 25th, 2015

Guest article by Mona Delfino @ www.sacredreconnections.com.

When I woke up today, a feeling came over me that ignited my joy. I wasn’t sure at first why suddenly I’d wake from a sound sleep with such a feeling of bliss. So I went into my heart, still laying in bed, and simply asked as I delved into the joy.

The answer I received was clear; “You are in a moment of clarity as to who your soul is.” Continue reading

Mahala – Aquarian Mycelium By Alison McCabe – 7 February 2015

MahalaGuest article by Alison McCabe.

Following my last blog there was a lot of interest in mushrooms and how they might relate to the Aquarian energies and Mayan prophecies. The approaching Total Solar eclipse over the crown of the British Isles, the fair Emerald Goddess at the Spring Equinox this year is an influx of the energies of endings and new beginnings and an important turning point in human consciousness. It seems a wonderful time to celebrate the transforming power of the mushroom.

It seems first a good idea to address the fear that many people have of mushrooms. Of course there are poisonous mushies but sometimes this fear seems to be something more than common sense. I recall as a child somebody saying “how can you trust something that grows in the dark and eats crap?.”  I think this became a bumper sticker! Continue reading

Mahala – Planet Alert February 2015 – 31 January 2015

MahalaBy Mahala Gayle, on January 30th, 2015

I can’t believe we are almost in February, where does the time go? Doesn’t it seem like just yesterday it was Christmas?  As I am writing this article (January 26) a large Asteroid just passed by Earth and a major storm is in the process of happening on the East Coast. When there is a disturbance in the heavens something always manifests on Earth. As above, so below.  It was also a manifestation of the moon triggering the Uranus/Pluto square and Pluto affecting the East Coast. Mercury, which rules storms, was retrograde in Aquarius and Uranus is the ruler of Aquarius. Continue reading
