This is the Full Moon of the Buddha celebrated worldwide.  The Buddha is thought to actually come to Earth in a Himalayan valley. Sitting as the Buddha, being grounded and centered, feeling completely aware of everything/nothing, having gentle compassionate wisdom, total peace, are what we seek. With two outer planets, Jupiter and Uranus, still in Aries, it might be more like Thich Nhat Hanh’s walking meditation, riding your bike long distance in the Zen of the flow.  But at the time of the Full Moon, there are FOUR planets in early Taurus, a stellium, starting with Venus, Taurus’s own planet, Mercury, then Mars, all three closely together in conjunction.  The Sun is last, at the end of Taurus.  Mars, Venus and Mercury are the planets associated with the first three signs of the zodiac, Aries, Taurus, Gemini, as if in summary of the three sacred festivals of the first three Full Moons of the year, Aries The Christ – Love, Taurus The Buddha – Wisdom, Gemini Humanity – The Word! 

Taurus sits on the rock, walks in focused prayer and silence stopping to listen, touch the trees, tip and sniff the flower now and then.  It is one with Nature, loves the touch of all its textures.  Barefoot on soil presses minute particle to particle, draining away hysterical fear, replacing it with a neutrality from the soil that allows you to be free to see simplicity.  A Tao Te Ching phrase that has been with me a long time is ‘Do you have the patience to wait till your mud settles and the water is clear? Till right action arises by itself?’ 

Scorpio Moon?  Taurus is mine.  Scorpio is ours.  Sharing.  Mutual funds.  A gathering of resources from the deepest realms.  The Native American Underworld where power is sought, faced alone, Spirit your only Ally, imbued with a Sacred Trust.  The Greco/Roman mythological underworld of Hades.  Christian celibacy; tantric sexual intimacy, a merging beyond words.  The Pagan life sustaining storing of goods for winter sharing, a living reservoir of human connection.   

Goddess Mother Moon, GrandMother Moon, lights these ‘dark’ places as fully as She can, with her Night Light, a gentle, more bearable Light, than the Light of Day.  This is a time to look upon the silver strands that connect us, absorb their meaning.  What binds us?  Money, Love, genetics, nothing we can explain?  Is it time to step across the barriers, cross the threshold to the next level?  To return to our prime mission?  To let go and keep walking?

Walk it, share as you can.  I will be being mindful the evening previous the Full Moon, and the 17th, in planetary prayer.  The Sun and Jupiter will be in the degree of the Galactic Center.  Join me in Spirit if you wish.  By your grace.

Wishing you a Magical Yule, Winter Solstice!

Magic is afoot!  This Winter Solstice moment, 3:39 PM Pacific, is preceded by the Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon at 0:13 AM! 

TOTAL Lunar Eclipse VISIBLE just after midnight on the US westcoast – are you going to stay up to see it and wish the new year in?!  Many Earth Religion peoples will be doing just that!  Rain is forecast for some areas, but celebrate as you will – meditation, hot chocolate and a fire….  The Eclipse will be at 29 Gemini 21 with the Sun opposite in Sagittarius, an axis of mind and purpose.  How we think, what we think, what we pay attention to, how we gather information, how we express it, all affect outcome!  How we are able to learn limits or expands our range of effectiveness and sharing with others.  Without enough information and exchange of ideas, right on down the line, everyone loses.  If our attention wanders, we lose connection.  People feel that loss and wonder about your or their self esteem.  Our style of idea gathering taints or tantalizes, making people not or want to share with us again.  Our sharing style chokes the network, or invites joy and excitement of exchange!  You see?  And this is only the Gemini side of the Eclipse!

Sagittarius needs to know, so much, to have a fully informed, broad perspective, to choose the Living Truth, that changes as we grow!  Faith can be a fickle feature, because she too is a living thing!  Faith doesn’t just happen.  Faith is experienced, a product of a history of good choices, some your own, some of the people you trust.  Good choices may not make you wealthy, but they are true to you and your heart and Soul.  How you stand with you matters.  Without all the information, one makes choices that are short of the mark, never quite satisfying because something always feels awry, can’t quite put your finger on it.  So put those Geminis, or the Gemini part of yourself, to work.  Listen to them intently, help them focus where you need the info.  If it doesn’t feel like you have enough yet to make your decisions, send them out to bird dog more!  Then make wise choices for the Path you are traveling, the message you choose to publish.  Be continually wise, change when the input changes.  Expansion and growth are a powerful postures of a fully living Sagittarian!  It seems like luck, but forever the scanning observer in their far reaching adventures, it’s their kind of brilliance that saves them!

Yule, Winter Solstice is a grand time to snuggle, but keep your eyes wide open for the possibilities that grow from the root dark in Winter’s Night.  Many a profound insight springs from the eternal internal, a mere candle flicker only glimpsed, sometimes during a whimper.  We might be sad, we might feel like steel, but it comes.  The underworld has always been well respected, often feared, a testing place of Spirit, yet we come back more powerful, even if only quietly.  Power may be barking or whispering, yet it works.  This year, as since 2008, Pluto is near the 0 Capricorn Winter Solstice degree.  Pluto is the God of the Underworld, so this life and death, sharing and healing planet makes it all the more meaningful.  As many are suffering from financial losses, a time of sharing and creative healing springs, as the serpents on the Physician’s staff of Life, raising the Phoenix from its own ashes!   The Sun is always there, it’s just short days.  It may seem thinner, the light laid low across our skies, but still, it is there.  Never been anything wrong with slowing down, resting, noticing more of what is between the molecules.

The last degrees of a sign are always endings and beginnings.  The Eclipse is at 29 degrees, the last, and Solstice is 0 degrees, the first.  May your endings end well and beginnings be even better!  I wish you peaceful days.  I pray you take time to tell your love, appreciate the special in others, what’s good in you.  Happy Yule, Winter Solstice – Mama Earth’s New Year, and Eclipse!

Winter Solstice Day, Dec 21, I will post an overview of 2011!  There is much to come!

Sneak Preview! On April 29th through May 1st, 2011, the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Uranus, 6 planets, will all be ON FIRE in Aries!  Unbelievable passion, magic of Spirit!  Your Mother is impatient, your pen is pissed and potent, your Lover is sweet HOT, careful not to run the red light, exercise is a no-brainer, the mighty Truth stands on its hind legs and bites, change is electrifying and defying, a challenge to be alone together!!!!
