Summer & Winter Solstices’

Summer & Winter Solstices’

Stonehenge

Facts about the SUMMER SOLISTICE:

• The earth’s axis of rotation is tilted approximately 23.5 degrees. That means that different parts of earth receive different amount of sunlight through the year, resulting in seasons and solstices.
• While the summer solstice is the longest day of the year, it’s not the hottest. Like an oven, it takes time for it to heat up – just like the Northern Hemisphere summer! While the earth may absorb a lot of light that day, it takes weeks to release that heat — meaning the hottest day of the year occurs later in the summer, in July or August.
• Stonehenge was likely used to mark solstices. While much about the Stonehenge, the famed stone monument located in the United Kingdom, remains a mystery, some scientists believe it was used to mark solstices when it was built about 5,000 years ago.
• The Summer Solstice in the Southern Hemisphere is December 21st or December 22nd.

Midwinter

Facts about the WINTER SOLSTICE:

• The Winter Solstice is noted for countries living in South of the Equator, or in the Southern Hemisphere.
• The winter solstice is the day with the fewest hours of sunlight in the whole year.
• There is a theory that Stonehenge was built in the Winter Solstice (which in the Northern Hemisphere, North of the Equator) but there is still much mystery about Stonehenge.
• The word solstice comes from Latin sol “sun” and sistere which means to “to stand still.”
• The Winter Solstice for the Northern Hemisphere is December 21st.

Card for the Day: GOLDEN MEMORIES

Card for the Day: GOLDEN MEMORIES

(Courtesy of the Universal Love Healing Oracle Cards by Toni Carmine Salerno) 

This card is a reflection that someone, a beloved family member, or a dear friend, or even a wonderful furry baby who is now in the Spirit shares a Golden Memory with you today.

A memory is a treasured gift from our past. This card symbolizes the thoughts, emotions, actions, and words that are associated with this treasured memory that you and this person, man, woman or pet or animal share with you. Look back on a golden, happy and joyful memory. Remember all the wonderful things you did together. Because your loved ones, remember this fondly too!

While we can’t change the past, we can learn and appreciate the time that we had with our loved ones. It is perfectly okay to still miss them, to still grieve for them, even if it’s been many years later since their passing.

Life is apart of death, as death is apart of life. It is the Universal balance of everything. Love is Universal, and in all faiths, in all cultures, it is eternal. Our deep connections with our loved ones are as strong as they were when they were with us in this world.

So, please don’t be sad, your loved ones are happy, and want you to be happy. Their gift to you is that life and love is a gift. Treasure this with all your heart, and make the most of it.

You will see them again, someday!

With love and blessings,

Card of the Day: SCALES OF BALANCE: Ancient Tantra of the Soul

Card of the Day: SCALES OF BALANCE: Ancient Tantra of the Soul
(Courtesy of the Isis Oracle by Alana Fairchild)

You a Tantrika, a Initiate on the Path of Divine Healing of the Divine Masculine and Feminine, the two sacred polarities, that universal to human experience. As theses energies come into mutual respect and balance, you attain great power, presence and healing effect on the world of the Soul and in human world forms here on this Earth. You are further supported this path now, under the auspices and blessings of beloved Isis.

You are in the process of a sacred relationship healing of the Divine Masculine and Feminine energies within your own Soul. This is the advanced spiritual path of the Tantra. It is the sacred connection of body and Soul. The effect of this inner divine relationship healing is genuine enlightenment of the mind and body. The body become a living sacred temple of light, energy and wild aliveness. This embodiment can be experienced in movement, in deep stillness, in vitality or in stillness.

You are a Tantrika, a priest or priestess, of the Tantric arts. Some people mistakenly believe Tantra is simply about sexuality, but it is in truth of the journey of the Soul to bring masculine and feminine polarities into wholeness, love, unity and empowerment – to learn the enlightened path in every element of your being. This is the Soul-building work that is of great service of the spiritual healing and evolution of all humanity. All humanity (and this does include yourself) is in great need of creating a sacred connection between the mind and body. Perhaps this might be on your own personal level of healing of the sacred Tantra connection your mind and body connections, or perhaps you have been called towards the Tantra path of your healing services to others to help them balance and accept their own Divine masculine and feminine energies. Whatever path is is shown to you, by beloved Isis, either privately or through an obvious way, accept it with open arms. Walking a path of the sacred and spiritual work of Isis, means to work authentically, to live and be dedicated to this spiritual path, who has taught us all about the creative healing power that could come of healing the relationship of the masculine and feminine consciousness.

You are guided to accept this healing through learning to balance the masculine and feminine within yourself and all your relationships with others. Balancing involves giving and taking, directing and flowing, moving and stopping, play and solitude are ways to do this now. Learning to feel comfortable as possible with your sexual and spiritual nature, seeing how they complement rather than compete with each other is helpful too. Connection to the body is the most powerful healing for the feminine energy as it holds the secrets of the Divine feminine. This can occur through movement, dance or yoga, as it helps you bring body awareness and presence. Rather than doing any fast flowing postures, that may take you more into your head than your body. If you wish to come more into your body is to spend time in nature, swimming, laying in the sun, or walking, but remember to stay present within your body and to notice the sensations within your physical body. Notice what you experience.

This card is a guide as you are embarking on a Path of Inner Healing and Service. You are encouraged to explore the Divine Masculine and Feminine specifically at this time. This may involve forgiveness of past relationships with significant males or females. It may require an adjustment to softening to allow in feminine wisdom, or cutting out some distraction or draining situations or relationships that minimize your own sense of power and capacity to your own masculine power.

You are also guided if you are wanting to embarking healing work with others, that you can help others heal through exploring the interplay of the masculine and feminine energies. It might be through the connection of the mind and body, through the inner and outer worlds, through sexuality and spirituality; joining for healing. Please join the unfolding journey, beloved Initiate, for it would be highly creative which may involve art, movement such as dance, yoga, breath work, energy healing, and the skies the limit!

With love and blessings,

Libby xoxo

Native American Wisdom by Geronimo…for today

 

“When a child my mother taught me the legends of our people; taught me of the sun and the sky, the moon and the stars, the clouds and the storms. She also taught me to kneel and pray to Usen for strength, health, wisdom, and protection. We never prayed against any person, but if we had aught against any individual we ourselves took vengeance. We were taught that Usen does not care for the petty quarrels of men.”

Card for today: LISTEN TO YOUR INTUITIVE FEELINGS

Card for today: LISTEN TO YOUR INTUITIVE FEELINGS

(Courtesy of the Angel Therapy Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue)
“Your body is receiving accurate message from the Divine”.

As the 11/1 or 11:1 portal is now opened, you would have noticed that you would have received messages from the Divine and your spiritual team!

This is calling you to trust and have faith with what you have received. Even if you don’t understand, or even don’t believe what has been told to you through words, images, dreams, thoughts, through creativity or even through other forms of intuitive insights – please trust what is put before you.

“With faith all things are possible, with trust all things can be made into a reality.” Is a message I hear from Spirit.

Our human bodies are designed to store karmic data from past lives as well as karmic lessons and life experience. We are even infused with our soul DNA from the Divine. Our soul energy is constantly changing and there has been recent shifts.

Basically, EVERYONE will notice in some form either subtly or significantly to make a change and therefore this 11:1 has been given us – a gift to manifest something of our true, and of our deepest heart’s desire. That’s why you can write your manifestations down in a journal, an angel or Reiki box, a gratitude box, or just by praying or setting this very special intention.

Whatever wish or desire you have manifested today, hold that intention in your heart. Surround it with love, light. Be grateful and thankful for the Divine and Universal blessings that it will bring.

Listen to YOUR OWN INTUITION today….allow your guides, angels and Ascended Masters lead you where you need to go.

With all my love for this special day! Libby xoxo

P.S. There will be more significant portals throughout this year. So just go with the flow as we all begin 2018.

Listen to your intuitive feelings

New Moon 18 November 2017 – EARTHLY CHANGES

New Moon 18 November 2017 – EARTHLY CHANGES

The new moon on Saturday the 18th of November 2017 is at 26 degrees Scorpio. New moon November 2017 is almost exactly opposite a planet new to astrology. Minor planet Sedna was only discovered in 2003 so astrologers have only just started to understand it’s meaning. Most interpretations seem to be based on the mythology of the arctic goddess of the sea because the planet was named after her. Due to the orbital history of Sedna I am sure it’s associated with climate change and rising sea levels.

The November 18 new moon links a new awareness of climate change to the most important planetary aspect of 2017, Saturn trine Uranus. This major aspect will help you make positive changes in your life in response to the threats posed by climate change. New moon November 2017 will help you find practical and creative ways to save energy, while making your life more efficient and productive.

What is Sedna?

Sedna is a minor planet. Planet Sedna, is by far the longest orbital period of any planet taking 11,400 years to orbit the Sun. It also has a very elongated orbit which is the possibility of the result of influence by a binary comparison to the Sun (Nemesis), responsible for the cyclic nature of mass extinctions on earth from comets.

When Sedna nears its own point of orbit near Earth (otherwise known as perihelion) this won’t occur until 2076. The last time Sedna was this close to Earth was in 9400 BC, which was the very beginning of the Neolithic Age. This period of time is considered by many scientists, archaeologists, and historians alike as the ‘New Stone Age.” You could say that we were evolving way ahead from our nomadic roots!

But back to the this month’s New Moon in Scorpio…..

New Moon Meaning

A new moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of another new 28 day cycle.
When the Sun is associated with the Moon (otherwise known as in ‘conjunct’) it gives
an invigorating burst of energy and initiative. This is an excellent time for making a fresh start and turning over a new leaf or starting a new project. You can also question old habits, behaviors and beliefs as you search for new and inventive ways to make progress.

All of us will feel the effects of the November 18th New Moon which will last for four weeks leading up to the December 18th New Moon. It is during this new cycle that you can beginning with fresh starts and for beginnings towards new projects is during the first two weeks of the new moon cycle. The waxing phrase (which is any phrase of the moon during the lunar cycle between the new moon and the full moon.); will last from November 18th, to the December 3rd Full Moon.

New Moon November 2017 Astrology

The November 18, 2017 new moon at 26°19′ Scorpio makes three very tight planetary aspects. It is a little too far from any major fixed stars to fall under their influence. The three aspects are not common ones and many astrologers would not include them in a moon phase reading. I think they are very significant because of the tiny orbs of the aspects and the increasing importance of the minor planet Sedna.

26°19′ Scorpio – conjunct New Moon

26°22′ Sagittarius – semisextile Saturn

25°23′ Aries – quincunx Uranus

26°13′ Taurus – opposite Sedna

The astrology chart for new moon November 2017 below shows two major aspects – the new moon opposite Sedna in red, and Saturn trine Uranus in blue. First of all, the flow of energy from the new moon starts with the challenging red aspect to Sedna. The aim is to get to the harmonious blue trine between Saturn and Uranus. The unstable green aspects help you get from point A to point B, from the tense and highly strung red aspect to the relaxed and harmonious blue aspect.


New Moon Opposite Sedna

Minor planet Sedna was only discovered in 2003. It has an exceptionally long and elongated orbital period of 11,400 years. Sedna is nearing its closest approach to Earth (perihelion) in mid 2076. The last time Sedna was this close to earth was in 9400 BC, coinciding with a sharp rise in temperature over 50 years. Does this ring any bells for you?

There is much debate with astrologers at the moment if Sedna is linked to climate change – because of hotter temperatures, rising sea levels, more extreme weather events and mass extinction of species. It happened at the start of the Preboreal Period 11,400 years ago and it is happening again now.

New Moon opposite Sedna should give some perspective on how climate change is beginning to impact our world environment and humanity. It means you cannot ignore the effects of climate change anymore because it’s starting to cause problems that affect your way of life, your finances, your future, and especially your children and hence with future generations to come. With the constant change environmentally, humanity may expect the rise in temperature and sea levels to continue over the next 60 years until Sedna reaches its perihelion.

New moon November 2017 opposite Sedna should also highlight the widely opposing opinions about climate change. This ranges from greenies who want to ban coal, to skeptics who deny climate change is real. The opposition aspect forces you to acknowledge the polarities, or opposites in your life.

Do your actions, your goals and your plans for the future take into account hotter weather, superstorms, and food shortages? You may believe climate change is real but what are you doing about it? How are these rapid changes in your environment affecting your physical and mental health, or the growth and development of your children?

Quincunx Adjustments

New Moon quincunx Uranus and to a lesser extent, new moon semisextile Saturn, give some answers to these questions. They can help you move from the tense fear and anxiety of the opposition to the reassuring harmony of the trine.

New moon quincunx Uranus can make it hard to settle and relax as your intuition senses change or some drama on the way. A build up of energy in your system can feel exciting but also a little scary. Pressure to change can come from someone or something with power over you. An unexpected event, accident or change may force you to change your routine, behavior or plans.

It is important to be flexible and adapt to changing conditions. If you resist change and become arrogant or disruptive you will suffer losses or miss out on important opportunities. An adjustment is needed whether you are forced to make changes or you find a different way forward yourself. Doing something a slightly different way could make all the difference, making life easier for yourself and those around you.

Saturn Trine Uranus November 2017

Saturn trine Uranus made it last exact aspect one week before the new moon on November 11. The November 18 new moon is the last activation of this year-long major aspect for the next thirty years. It seems to be significant that this harmonious blend of change and stability is directly related the Sedna and climate change. This aspect means you can experiment with new ideas and lifestyles without too much disruption.

You can incorporate positive change in your life while still working within the rules and regulations of society. You can experiment with traditional ways of doing things without being rebellious. This means the changes you make will be accepted and earn you respect. You can find practical ways to increase productivity and live more efficiently, saving time, energy and money. Saturn rules discipline and restriction while Uranus rules electricity and innovation. This is an energy-saving aspect.

New moon November 2017 will give you the opportunity to act responsibility and show your leadership qualities. Adapting to serious changes means initiating changes at home and in your workplace. This aspect is good for working with groups and bringing together people from a variety of background and skills. New technologies and innovations will be available to help you adapt. You can use the internet to connect to like-minded people, to learn, to share information and eventually to teach and guide others.

New Moon November 2017 Summary

The November 18 new moon will make you more aware of climate change because of its near exact opposition to the planet Sedna. However, this is just purely an assumption only since the last time this occurred some 11,400 years ago, when Sedna had completed its full orbit (or perihelion) there was a sharp rise in temperature over 50 years. Rapid changes in the environment are threatening wildlife, and humanity’s way of life and now we are wiser, stronger and more educated to do something about it.

By following your intuition and taking the lead, you will find practical ways to save time, energy and money. You may decide to have quicker showers or you might decide to buy an electric car. Every bit helps and new moon November 2017 is a good time to start. Saturn trine Uranus means you will cope very well in a calm and patient way. You can be a steady hand in this time of change and bring order out of chaos.

Have a safe and blessed New Moon!! <3

Full Moon: November 4th – The Magic of Romance

Full Moon: November 4 – The Magic of Romance

Full Moon November 2017 Astrology
The Full Moon on Saturday November 4, 2017 is at 12° Taurus. The astrology of Full Moon November 2017 is mainly influenced by Neptune.  On a positive note, this spiritual planet will make your more sensitive, intuitive, emotional and romantic.

The November 2017 Full Moon is also influenced by a strongly placed Venus, which of course is the planet of love! Venus was in the same place as the earlier New Moon on October 19, 2017. The combination of these very powerful influencing planets will help enhance your good fortune of the new moon, and bring friendship, love and romance. This is only possible if you are patience open-minded and flexible.

Full Moon Meaning

Remember, that during a Full Moon the Sun opposite the moon which highly opposing forces or polarities in your life. A Full Moon is the Sun opposite Moon which highlights opposing forces or polarities in your life. Some examples of these may include your ego verses emotions, your work versus home; or what you want or what you need. This may cause inner tension or external pressure either from you or from other people. This can lead to conflict, crises that can drain your energy.

The lunar (moon) qualities of emotions and instincts reach their peak at the Full Moon. During this intense period, use your increased emotional strength and intuition overcome any challenges. Subconscious awareness allows for a balanced look at your personal relationships. You will clearly see any relationship dynamics or negative feelings causing disharmony.

The Full Moon is interrelated with the previous New Moon that occurred on October 19. Your goals form that New Moon can be fine-tuned or completed – it is now time for the harvest. It’s the time to make emotional adjustments in response to your New Moon goals. The effects of the November 4th Full Moon will last for two weeks up to the November 18th New Moon.

Full Moon November 2017 Astrology

The November 4 Full Moon will occur at 11°58′ Taurus will stimulate your imagination and intuition because of a positive link to the spiritual planet Neptune. There are no major stars within range of the Full Moon but the Sun does line up with the main fixed star in the Southern Cross. This mystical star linked to Neptune gives a strong spiritual influence to the November 2017 Full Moon.

As previously mentioned in this article, this Full Moon complements the October 19 New Moon. At 26°35′ Libra, the New Moon joined two very lucky stars. The Full Moon Venus now takes that same place. This gives an even stronger connection to the events of the last two weeks, especially in relation to your love life.

Full Moon: Moon Magic:

Full Moon sextile Neptune heightens your level of sensitivity and emotions. You will be more in touch with the feelings of other people and should enjoy the company of pleasant people in nice surroundings. The Full Moon will help you connect at a deeper level with your loved ones, especially family members, partners and women.

Perhaps during this time, you may have feelings of unpleasantness or uncertainly, especially if it involves emotions or memories from a friendship, or any relationship that hasn’t gone the way you have expected or anticipated – please be kind to yourself. Venus, the planet of love as well as your own intuition and psyche will guide you to what you need to know. Perhaps you just need to have patience with yourself and others at this point in time. I’m reminded that “Patience is a virtue”. Patience is necessary to allow something even better to be made known.

Your intuition and psychic abilities will be stronger and more accurate than usual. Dreaming and imagination will be more vivid and creative. If you wish to remember your dreams – please do have a journal and write down what you can remember. No matter how big or small occurs in your dreams. It is something that answers to your prayers and can dig deep into your subconscious.  This Full Moon in November 2017 provides spiritual or psychic protection for meditation, lucid dreaming and other spiritual or occult activities.

Full Moon November 2017: LOVE IS IN THE AIR!

The October 19 New Moon at 26°35′ Libra brought opportunities for wealth, honour and success because of its alignment with the extremely fortunate fixed stars Spica (24°04′ Libra) and Arcturus (24°28′ Libra). Aspects to Saturn trine Uranus from the New Moon means you should stay patient but also open-minded and flexible to unlock the treasures of the New Moon.

The Full Moon November 2017 has the planet of love, Venus at 25°55′ Libra even closer to these lucky stars. This means the next two weeks of this spiritual moon phase offers you friendship, love and romance – but only if you are patient, open-minded and flexible. Don’t rush, but rather go with the flow!

Venus opposite Uranus is exact only 20 minutes before the Full Moon. This usually signals a change in your love life. If you already have a partner, an unexpected event may cause tension. It may be that your need for a change or excitement in the bedroom is rejected. Healthy relationships would endure such transgressions and a permanent separation would be unlikely. An affair at this time would more likely lead to a rapid separation.

If dating, a new romance now would be exciting but possibly short-lived. Whatever your situation, if love is not an option then change and excitement can manifest in another area of life. Financial windfalls are possible but you should be careful taking risks with money.

The combined influence of a very spiritual Full Moon and a very lucky Venus means you can connect at a deeply spiritual level with your partner and loved ones. This romantic Full Moon is the perfect time to fall in love and find your true soul mate.

Previous Moon Phase: New Moon 19 October 2017

Next Moon Phase: NEW MOON 18 NOVEMBER 2017

Full Moon November 2017 Times and Dates:

Los Angeles November 3 – 10:22 pm
