Eris

The myth of Eris suggests that when we ignore or repress strife, it returns to create chaos. The card signals a situation that needs to be confronted directly and honestly even though it may be unpleasant or disruptive. Eris recognizes that action is necessary to prevent disconcerting consequences.

Feminine Wisdom

Conflict is an aspect of the human drama. When we confront discord openly, the issue can be resolved and released.

Solar Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio

The Scorpio Solar Eclipse occurs on November 3rd, 2013 at 4:50 am PST/ 7:50am EST/ 12:50pm GMT. Most of the eclipse can be seen in the Atlantic, southwestern Europe and most of Africa. People on the East Coast of the Americas can see it toward sunset.

A solar eclipse disrupts the energy flow between the Sun and Earth and helps establish new energy channels for new possibilities.

This Scorpio New Moon is a rare hybrid Solar Eclipse, both an annular and total eclipse.  An annular eclipse is when there’s a ring of fire around the Sun; a total eclipse is when the Moon blocks out all of the Sun’s rays. Scorpio is the sign of regeneration and teaches us how to shed our skins and peel away the layers to uncover our gleaming core. Radiance is the result of allowing the uniqueness within each of us to shine forth.

The last eleven degree Scorpio solar eclipse was on November 3, 1994. What changed for you in 1994 and 1995? What did you begin then?  How have you found completion since then?  What is calling to you now?

The Scorpio Solar Eclipse is teaching you to forgive others and yourself. The eclipse message is prepare for new pathways, potentials and possibilities.

The Solar Eclipse symbolizes ‘light of awareness’ and new beginnings in astrology. They are considered to be major turning points and open doorways for opportunities. So consider this New Moon phase intensely energized to be empowered, trust in new ways and express creative energy in positive passionate ways. What intention or ‘symbolic’ seed will you plant within your subconscious?

Define yourself by what is true for you. Live your life from your own terms.  Live from the inside out.

When we have creative interaction with people inspired by original creative visions, we can create a new social order.  We do have to step into our new roles as leaders and visionaries if we are to change our politics and save the world.  With this Solar Eclipse, we come to the end of a cycle and the ground is now fertile for new seeds, new ideas, new intentions.

Scorpio is the Eagle – The Eagle who soars above karma and drama where many folks are entangled. Keep your frequency at the level of Eagle who can see from on high what is true.

Your purpose here is that of the Phoenix – to arise out of the ashes of its own flames and be renewed and reborn. The time is about making right choices and maintaining your focus no matter what is transpiring around you. If you’re experiencing the negative pole of Scorpio – resentment, stubbornness, fear, blame, jealousy, suspicion-you’re on the wrong track; cut it. Regroup and align to Higher Power. Discipline means practicing in every moment.

We no longer have to live life in the same old way. We can envision a more honest and direct way of living. More vibrant and alive. And the best way to bring that vision into reality is to begin right now by looking within, observing the truth and speaking it back to ourselves with awareness and love, knowing that, ultimately, it is this very truth – no matter how unpalatable – which will set us completely free.

There is also wonderful potential for words and communication to be fluid and healing now. Let peace radiate from you silently and infuse into any given situation that requires greater peace, healing or wholeness.

Scorpio New Moon Essential Oil

Helichrysum Essential Oil

During the Scorpio New Moon—a time of rebirth and revival—it’s good to know about helichrysum essential oil, itself known for its regenerative properties. Also known as everlasting and immortelle, helichrysum is a favorite when the skin needs assistance in healing scars and wounds. Its regenerative properties may also be experienced on an emotional level, as many find that it helps to release repressed feelings while catalyzing greater self-compassion.

Scorpio New Moon Flower Essence

Pink Monkeyflower

As the Scorpio energy allows us to probe deeply, this New Moon can be an auspicious time to go within and find the aspects of ourselves that we have been hiding, likely because of fear of being vulnerable or concern that if we show who we truly are we may be abandoned. This emotional armoring—usually accompanied by an inherited sense of shame–keeps us from sharing ourselves truly with others (and sometimes even with ourselves) and restricts us from living more freely. Pink Monkeyflower flower essence can help fortify our hearts, assisting us in taking emotional risks so that we can let our selves more fluidly flow through. (Flower essences are made from flower-infused water and work energetically to restore emotional and mental balance. You can find them in natural food stores or holistic pharmacies.)

November 2013 ~ GemStone: Shiva Lingam

Shiva Lingam

Pronunciation: [ˈshi-və, ˈshēˈliŋ-gəm]

Color: grey or tannish stones with reddish stripes, rings and swirls

Appearance: egg shaped

Source: Narmada River in Onkar Mandhata, western India

Image

Shiva Lingam

The elongated egg-shape of the Shiva Lingam is actually regarded as symbolic of the phallus of the Hindu god Shiva. In temples it is often paired with a corresponding object symbolizing the female, or the yoni. Yet within its own form, the Shiva Lingam symbolizes both the male and female, as well as the cosmic egg out of which all creation is said to have emerged.

Legend has it that the goddess Parvati fashioned a Shiva Lingam from a fistful of sand at Kanchipuram and there worshiped Shiva. This specimen is known as the Prithvilingam, symbolizing the primordial element Earth. Some of the Shiva Lingams in Hindu temples are called swayambus, denoting that they appeared on their own, untouched by tools or human hands. Shiva Lingams symbolize the primeval energy of the Creator. Hindu devotees believe that at the end of creation, at the time of the great deluge, all the various aspects of God find a resting place in the Lingam- Brahma is absorbed upon the right, Vishnu on the left and Gayatri in the heart. The Shiva Lingam is also said to be a dipiction of the infinite Cosmic Column of Fire.

Metaphysical Healing Properties of Shiva Lingam

Keywords: Kundalini activation, vitality and prana, spiritual transformation and rebirth, enlightenment, oneness with all.

Shiva Lingams resonate deeply with the energies of the Earth, yet they also carry strong energies of Water, Wind, and even Fire. In fact, the fire energy of these stones is so strong that they are capable of activating kundalini energies and charging the entire Chakra System. For those who feel they need a boost of vitality and prana energies, meditating or sleeping with a Shiva Lingam is highly recommended.

Esoteric legends (and now even some scientists) suggest that there is a field of invisible knowledge- similar in some ways to the idea of the collective unconscious- in which the stored psychic energy of human ritual and belief may reside. When one does something that makes a connection to some portion of this field of consciousness, one can tap into the energy of all the past consciousness that has contributed to it. Thus, when one works with a sacred object like the Shiva Lingam, one can receive the benefit of the collective efforts of all those who have used such stones in spiritual pursuits throughout history. Since the Shiva Lingam has been an object of devotion to the Divine and a tailsman of enlightenment for many centuries, one can connect with the energy of all this through working with these stones in the here and now. This is especially true because the stones themselves are composed primarily of microscopic Quartz. Through crystal resonance, and Shiva Lingam can connect energetically to all others throughout the world, in all places and times. It is little wonder that they are such potent spiritual talismans.

Shiva Lingams are emblems of inner transformation, partaking of the Storm element in order to break up patterns of self-limiting habits and beliefs, so one may be flooded with Spirit. Like Shiva, they destroy what is old and corrupt to clear the way for rebirth. Those who wish for such transformation will find in them a fierce and ready ally.

GemStone Healing Combinations

Shiva Lingams harmonize with all forms of Quartz. For spiritual transformation, they have a special affinity with Moldavite.

Healing Properties of Shiva Lingam

The energies of the stones resonate with the Storm element. They amplify the electromagnetic field of the body and stimulate the meridians. Both energetically and metaphysically, Shiva Lingams represent the healing of polarities and the unifying force of creation. The total energetic effect of the stone is one of union and the activation of the sacred kundalini energy that rises up the spine, activating the chakras and bringing enlightenment.

SPIRITUAL

Shiva Lingams remind us that perceived opposites are simply different energetic expressions of the whole. Beyond ‘male’ and ‘female’,’light’ and ‘dark’, ‘good’ and ‘evil’, there us an underlining unifying force. Shiva Lingams aid in uniting all sides of the self and lovingly accepting the differences in others as expressions of the many faces of the one Creator.

EMOTIONAL

Shiva Lingams can assist in overcoming judgement, separation and the need to be ‘individual’ or apart. The word ‘apart’ means separate, yet it is composed of the words ‘a part’, which indicates wholeness. Shiva Lingams help us feel unity, even in situations of apparent separation.

PHYSICAL

Shiva Lingams stimulate the body’s energetic systems, supporting general healing on all levels. They can be used to treat impotence, infertility and other sexual or reproductive imbalances. Their highest use, however, is for strengthening and balancing the entire body.

AFFIRMATION

I give myself to the Divine- with complete trust and utter devotion I ask to be remade and enlightened.

::Hecate::

{Crossroads}

Chthonic Goddesses

Chthonic Goddesses dwelled in the Earth and ruled the Underworld. These potent goddesses of magic and mystery knew the feminine secrets of the eternal round. When these initiatory goddesses appear, a transforming experience is inevitable.

Hecate

We encounter Hecate when the paths of our lives converge and we are uncertain which direction to follow. She shepherds the way with her canine companions and lights the path with her torch. Knowing the wisdom of cycles, and their triune phases of birth, death and rebirth, the lunar goddess also represents women’s menstrual cycles and life transitions. She appears on the threshold of change as women enter new phases of their lives. During a transition, Hecate encourages you to neither look back to the past nor rush forward into the future. Petition her wisdom to relieve the anxiety, insecurity and uncertainty that accompany change.

Feminine Wisdom

Create rituals to help you navigate feelings of confusion, loss and disconnection at crossroads and to manage the transition.

Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries

The lunar eclipse occurs on Friday, October 18, 2013 at 4:37pm PDT/ 7:37pm EDT/ 11:37 pm GMT.  It can be seen in Europe, Africa and the Americas.

Image

 We have officially entered Eclipse season and are moving toward two upcoming eclipses (10.18 & 11.3). The theme of balance continues as we are feeling pressure to take action in those places where we are out of balance to bring those aspects of our lives into right relation. Action is being called for yet we must practice mindfulness.

Because the Earth blocks the Sun’s light during a lunar eclipse, we see the Moon directly.  A lunar eclipse stirs up the emotional body, bringing up what our patriarchal-shaped egos have repressed or forgotten, making us aware of our hidden motivations.  Usually we hide from fear, so confront your fears and look at your real motivations for doing what you do. Their effect can last between six months and two years. They herald major endings and beginnings in the area where they occur in your natal birth chart

A lunar eclipse can bring up the Shadow; we can act it out unconsciously or recognize and integrate it into our conscious personality and act accordingly.

This full moon phase will be highly active on the emotional level. The Sun in Libra and the Moon in Aries urge each person to find harmony between individuality and collaboration.  You will learn a lot about yourself through relating with others now, especially about unresolved emotions that appear during this phase.

This eclipse comes to remind us that who we are is written nowhere but in our own hearts, and it is there we will discover it. As with the last several Full Moons, important transformations helping us see a deeper Mystery are evoked by this Lunation. This calls us to a greater empathy and ability to know shared feelings, and continues to educate us in an emotional understanding.

The Aries eclipse compels you to take action. You may feel highly motivated and ready to blaze a new trail.

Everyone will go through important releases of energy, people, and elements that would prevent them from being the spiritual potential they hold in the depths of their Being. This is a threshold, and some people cannot go through it with us, nor can we cross their threshold with them. So let go and unveil yourself with focus and compassion.

Hold on lightly not tightly is the Aries eclipse message. Maintaining a light attachment to relationships, situations and outcomes proves wise.  Hang loose, don’t make any rash decisions. Go with the flow and be patient. Take your time with important matters.

Mars shows that we will be able to count on our ‘invisible helpers’ when it seems all else fails, and that these experiences will show us hidden powers in our Being. Regardless of the crisis, we will have major angelic (Devic) help at our disposal.

Things will be very unique in how they unfold over the next few months, and we will see a lot with new eyes, new understanding, and new skills. Much will be released, so stay focused on your Spiritual Brothers and Sisters and deepen your connection with them.

Embrace change. Be the change agent for your life. Change can feel painful at times. When you take the lead change will feel easier. Do what is right for you.

We are creating the New Earth together with our thoughts, words and deeds. The choices we make today determine our tomorrow. Therefore, it is recommended to see where you can take few steps towards practicing the quality of courage, confidence and using your personal power with compassion and wisdom.

The potential:  A feeling greater sense of courage, confidence and ability to take charge or initiative to take care of personal needs and well-being. From a Soul-level perspective, one is able to take action with assertiveness, compassion and wisdom guiding the way.

Flower Essences

Impatiens

If you have a very strong sense that it’s not the best time to take action and yet you feel a compulsion to do so anyway, consider Impatiens flower essence. It may help to stem a sense of urgency that is not truly related to the situation at hand but rather to the rushing energetic that could seem pervasive at this time.

Scarlet Monkeyflower

If you find yourself feeling piqued because of injustices but feel that you don’t have the right to express your anger, consider Scarlet Monkeyflower. It can help you connect to and rightfully own the full range of your feelings, and therefore express them in a more conscious, holistic, and self-empowered way.

Tiger Lily Flower Essence

If you’re looking for support to transition from a solely go-it-alone strategy to one where you can clearly identify—and as importantly, allow—productive collaborations, consider Tiger Lily flower essence. It can encourage a shift from self-identified isolation to a receptivity towards participating in cooperative service with others.
