Time to Shine

Lunar Eclipse Leo 11deg = Total Eclipse begins 10.51pm Qld

Keep it simple sweetie!  Follow your heart & creative passion for emotional fulfillment.

What has been playing out for you since the Leo Solar eclipse last August 2017?  Has there been a potent or significant event over the last six months?

If so, maybe it has come up for review and completion on this lunar eclipse tonight.

Spend some time reflecting on the themes of the last six months.  Has there been unearthing of karmic contracts or strong heart-centred activations to follow your dreams – career, relationships, home, reason for existence?

The moon herself relates to soul essence, family, ancestral connections, sense of belonging, emotional patterning, reaction, security & stability, inner peace.

The Leo/Aquarius polarity is about joy, passion, creative expression, natural authentic leadership, the right to shine as a Sovereign Being, the personal gifting for humanity & the progressive awakening of our collective consciousness.

The flip side of this is diving deep into the underworld of our emotional patterning with family or relationship issues, especially father stuff.  What friendships have completed their natural course and is it time to release them with heart-felt love to move on from the drama?  Ask yourself what is important for you to stay in authentic truth and expression?

Be wise in your decision making.  Are the current cosmic energies giving you the impetus to make that liberated change or is it best to let the dust settle from the emotional spotlight?  Only you will know the answer to this.  Trust yourself.

On another sensitive note maybe ask yourself …when did you lose your confidence to shine and trust in your own nature?  Your own unique individuality and gifts tracking back to the Divine Child or Wounded One.  Spend some time writing and journalling.  Get out your art book and colourful pastels and draw without criticism from the judgemental parent-figure.  Let the child create with wild abandon!

“I am a most magickal Star Being with creative potential”

“My creative energies heal me and are a wonderful gift for the world”

“We are safe & supported.  It is time to shine in this life time”

Ceremony is always a magickal way to honour all of what is revealing from the deep.  Let the energies guide you intuitively to bring you into natural alignment.   Each to their own to offer conscious prayers out into the world for the collective healing.

 

 

 

Medicine Bundles

For many years I have worked in ‘collaborative adventures’ with artists, musicians, writers, healers, poets and wayseers to bring about a more sustainable world for our art.  This has been the impetus to create transpersonal ‘medicine bundles’ for our ravenous, passionate souls, to hold the beauty and forge a new pathway.  A place in the world where we belong and where we are cherished and loved.

Medicine basket

The metaphorical idea of the transpersonal ‘medicine bundle’ came to me during a sound healing.  It originates from the native American tradition of sacred medicine bags.  These medicine bags were worn on the body to remind the wearer of their unique purpose and direction in life.  The bags would hold sacred objects such as plant medicine, crystals, feathers, shells, talismans, ‘prayers’ made of clay, which related specifically to the wearer’s creative healing gifts and potentials.

The symbolic concept of the transpersonal ‘medicine bundle’ has been birthed from this traditional idea and has a significant resonance to the individual that I work with … ‘an ancient tool that is used in a modern application.’

The ‘medicine bundle’ assists you in connecting with your Authentic Being and to follow your true calling.  This is offered through three individual, transpersonal sessions, where we explore your creative gifts and potential, releasing any fears or limitations around this.

  • Experiential Astrology – soul direction, creative gifts and archetypal energies
  • Transpersonal Counselling – to explore limitations & fears ~ to embrace the Authentic Self
  • Shamanic Soul Retrieval – reclaiming the essence of creative passion

The transpersonal ‘Medicine Bundle’ comprises of three unique sessions for $260.

 

TESTIMONIALS

“Since my adolescence I believed I had some treasure to live to share and contribute. Whilst confused about what my gifts were. Not seeming to fit a mould or path already created. Finding my own way deepening into my path and trusting my inner guidance has been my journey.
 
In a world of trained rights and wrongs dos and dont’s conditions to adhere to and follow, finding the confidence to blaze my own way has taken its time.

Through journeying with Mikailah I have been nurtured gently encouraged boldly and been supported deeply. This support has not come just from this thoroughly educated and experienced amazing woman but from a well of wisdom, cosmic connection that is otherworldly.
 
She has interacted with my soul. Whispered me home, anchored me in my truth. Sessions with her have connected me to my innate wisdom, the wisdom and perfection of the earth-nature the nurture within me and with out me.
 
I have come away confidently connected, I now feel I have a profound powerful team of support beyond my wildest dreams.  I’m Illuminated, activated and blissfully reconnected with my mission, my own medicine and the medicine I have now to share with the world.” Marissa Donaldson ~ Alimental Energies

Venus in Sagittarius

This evening Venus moves into Sagittarius, along with some other potent planetary alignments. This conscious dreaming is calling forth highly evolved partnerships. It is time for us to embrace our energy in the stillness, to be deeply honouring of the Great Mother as the Black Moon resonates her ancient wisdom in Capricorn. At the same time, we are being called to surrender to her vulnerabilities and be empowered through the softness that radiates from her heart-space. It is the weaving of all into a unified heart-space.

How best do we align with expressing these astrological energies depends on our individual lines of self-enquiry and state of grace.

For some it is vitally important to engage in the wild dance of Kali, for She is the creation of nature ~ The Dark Mother, She of the Deep. For her to do this She must be reassured and trust the vessel holding this sacred rite for the movement of creation, preservation and destruction. These are the ingredients for the cosmic blend of the Beloved. Initiation and assertion are activated through our inner animus. Likewise, our inner anima resides in the gentle recess of our hearts. We have both aspects within and these qualities need to be nurtured and revered. Balance and unification will then bring forth healing which is reflected through inter-personal relationships.

During patriarchal history, humankind has been subjected to the dominator race and near eradication of the Sacred Feminine. The Great Mother is like the wild tigress that has been oppressed through the shackling and ‘domestication’ of her instinctive nature. Mother Earth has been continually raped to the detriment of all, which is felt within the psyche of humanity. We have danced away from each other through this separation and carry the wounding within our collective memories.

We need to be gentle with each other, for this will take time to heal and a new inclusive connection is essential for harmonious existence. This reconnection allows us to vision new ways of Being. This dreaming is gifted to us all to raise the consciousness of humanity. We need to understand that the conventional roles of how we have previously been interacting are changing. We need to educate ourselves on a more universal level. First and foremost, we need to be responsible for our own journey to wholeness through connecting with all aspects of our Inner Beloved. This requires great courage to step beyond our limitations and embrace our ecstatic Self.

A beautiful rite to honour the Inner Beloved is by reflecting on the Full Moon energies. It is a time to celebrate the life force of the Sun (creative essence) and the receptive nature of the Moon (expressive & nurturing). The Full Moon occurs every 29 ½ days and celebrates illumination. It is when the sun and the moon are dancing opposite each other in balance and harmony across the arc of the sky.

Use your intention to nurture the relationship between yourself and your Inner Beloved, however you feel you would like to express this for yourself. Offer this ritual as a gift for the evolution of humanity, as well as for personal benefits.

Close your eyes and focus on the breath. Call forth the elements and acknowledge them individually to offer the experiences and insights you need for your Divine Union.

Earth – body / sensuality / values
Water – emotions / subconscious
Fire – passion / creativity / intuition
Air – breath / communication
Spirit – cosmic connection

If you have a partner spend time in heart-felt communication. This is perfect leading into the Full Moon in Gemini in the early hours of Monday morning here in the Southern Hemisphere. Allow some time over the week to focus on each other. Again, close your eyes and focus on the breath before calling in the elements. Allow your inspired ideas to flow through the heart.

Another valuable ritual is to have a special place in nature that becomes your Beloved for merging with your higher consciousness. For many years I experienced an alchemical fusion with a sacred mountain where I live. This dedicated place holds healthy and safe energy for me. By connecting with this landscape it offered me a greater depth of understanding about the true unity of myself by releasing my shadow projections and attachments to the past. By nurturing my relationship with nature in this divine place, I became more aware of the universal tantric energies and experienced a deep transformation. I was instructed in a different way of receiving and giving love-wisdom. The sensory touch and erotic delight of the senses with the transcendental aspect of human love to spiritual. Explore where you live and find a place that holds similar energy for you through the ley lines. The land will love you for this and open to receive you in this holy quest “for that which you seek if you do not find it within, you will never find it without.”

Remember in these conscious times, to listen with your heart and feel strength in your vulnerabilities. Keep walking the path in sacred prayer for Earth Mother and beyond. For we are all One in this Divine Union.

Black Moon Lilith

This story is about the quintessence of the creative Earth Beings akin to PachaMama, Earth Mother, Gaia.  Words carry vibrations so I invite you to receive what is in resonance with your personal cosmologies at this moment in time and release what is not needed to be scattered like leaves in the wind.  Ultimately, Lilith’s archetypal energy is about the untameable, wild free spirit.  She wants you to claim your inner power, spiritual activism and embody your personal truth with integrity and authenticity.

The astrological work I offer is dedicated to our relationship with Pachamama, intermingled with our star consciousness.  When we walk the Beauty Way with honesty and dignity, we connect with the Ancestors; the Star People; the Plant People and their medicines; the Devic Spirits; the Tree Guardians and Stone People; the Two Spirits; the Water Beings; the Four Legged; the Two Legged; the Winged Ones and the Insects.  We look to how they commune with us, thereby allowing Mother Nature to teach us and to teach our children through the seasons, the four directions and the elements of Earth, Air, Fire, Water and Spirit.  These earth teachings bring great joy, balance and awareness into our integrated Being by celebrating all our relations ~ Mitakuye Oyas’in ~ we are all related, we are all One.

Primarily as feminine encounters, synthesis with our menstrual Star-Fire and fluid intelligence is a sovereign relationship.  We align with our menstruum (female lunar essence) through our moon cycle thus cultivating a more harmonious affinity with Mother Earth and guidance of her heartbeat.  When we return our blood to her, we hear her voice, we hear her heartbeat.  It becomes one with ours. These phenomenological teachings reflect our rich symbolic inner world.

By remembering the story of Lilith and her mythology we can activate an awakening transmission.  With an open heart and an open mind, we need to take ourselves back in history to around 4000 BCE to some important synchronistic events in the timeline of humanity.  This is a powerful teaching story of alchemical archetypal energies altering the collective earth story.  There are some important star lineage codes embedded within this storytelling if you happen to go searching or it could be just another remarkable tale.

We are going back to ancient Mesopotamia, around the time of Sumer and Babylon, a cultural area between the Euphrates and Tigris Rivers.  Geographically it is the same region as modern-day Iraq.  However, ancient Mesopotamia was a very different social structure as it was an egalitarian society. They were a matrilineal, fertility-based people that ritualised the natural cycles ~ the seasonal cycles of spring, summer, autumn and winter.  They understood about the sowing of seeds for the new cycle and the fruition that comes with that through tending to the plants, tending to the seeds as they grow and the metaphorical dreams and visions that come forth with this to the time of the Great Harvest.

There was significant celebration around the harvesting and the people also understood about winter coming in and the need to release what is no longer required, essentially this is the cycle of birth, life, death and rebirth. They were connected in with the heavenly spheres by myth, magick and mysticism.

In mythology Lilith dwells in the bottom of the Tree of Life and this represents the base chakra.  She inhabits the tree with the great serpent, one of her totem animals.  The serpent symbolises feminine knowledge, healing and oracular vision.  Lilith is known as the ‘screech owl of the night sky’ and the owl embodies the lunar and blood mysteries.  Her sacred flower is the Lily.  The top of the tree is the home of Inanna (Sumerian) or Ishtar (Babylonian).  Inanna/Ishtar reside in the top of the tree with the Anzu bird.  Therefore, we have a direct correlation with the ancient bird/snake Goddess personifying the shamanic journey of a person taking flight from the physical body during a vision quest to find truth and purpose by communing with Spirit.

One of Lilith’s primordial roles was to go into the fields and joyously dance the people back to the temple of Inanna/Ishtar.  The people would celebrate, feast and make music for the holy rites of fertility.  They would engage in sexual relations and experience an orgasmic connection with the Divine Creative Life Source.  They had great awareness about the kundalini energies moving through them to gain enlightenment.

In these times, the children were considered ‘gifts of the Great Mother’.  The whole community would raise the children in these earth medicine ways.  When women bled on the dark moon they would go into what we know as the red tent.  They would bleed for three days and three nights and be lovingly looked after and cherished by the rest of the community.   Their dreams would be received for the revealing of prophecies that would come through their blood song. The dreamings also included the healing ways of the plants, the healing ways of the Wise Woman.  The ancient circles would hold the wisdom of the Elders & they were consulted before any major decisions were made for the benefit of their community.  There was great freedom, however with freedom comes responsibility.

Lilith also appears in the Old Testament.  There has been an energetic shift from the matrilineal times and we are now in patriarchal reign.  The dominator race has come into being with destructive patriarchal conditioning and new archetypal energies are occurring with ego development.  In this storyline, Lilith was the first wife of Adam.  One day Lilith confronted Adam with her hand.  The hand symbol is either a warning or a greeting.  Lilith said to Adam “I do love you my husband but you need to treat me as your equal in this partnership.  For I will not lie beneath any man and be subservient.”  Adam, the dominator archetype, refused to meet Lilith on these terms of equality.  So instead of being subordinate and compromising her truth to meet someone else’s values, Lilith willingly chose to leave her family and tribe.  She went to live with kindred nature spirits in the wilderness.  Even though Lilith intentionally chose to leave her community, the ancient patriarchal fathers banished her and all that was sacred to women. They created fear and superstition around the story of Lilith and perpetuated a complex, collective wound.

Throughout the collective psyche, Lilith grew to be feared and was renowned for being the child killer, temptress and demonic hag.  Corrupted folklore fed this superstition of the vilified woman who became associated with shame and taboo.  Subjected to the projection of the patriarchal shadow, the female psyche throughout the ages experienced the dark night of the soul; the deep well of grief; denigrated status; sexual trauma and emotional repression; difficulties with conception and birthing; incarceration; madness; suicide and death.

In the Burning Times of the middles ages we have the dark oppression of the Goddess religion, the midwives, herbalists, healers and witches.  Many of whom were burnt or drowned because the church as an institution did not trust or want women to have the power that is within all of us.  ‘For she is unsafe.  She is not to be trusted ‘~ this was the distorted moralistic message that grew within the patriarchal collective.  The sacred teachings and wisdom of the Great Mother went underground.  Many of us still carry the old traumatic wound of persecution and separation.

In the Victorian era, we recount the absurd sexual repression of women.  A woman with strong Lilith energies was called the seductress, whore or harlot.  Great artists of this time painted Lilith as the Fallen Woman.  We remember with great honour, the suffragettes who fought to bring back women’s rights, many of whom were incarcerated and some lost their lives in the hunger strikes.  We acknowledge the women’s revolution in the sixties and seventies with the reclaiming of natural birthing and women’s equality.  These respective, collective feminist waves resurrected the warrior energy of Lilith, calling for emancipation from a governing system that dictates domestication and enslavement.  Those bold and fiery women embraced the forbidden side of the wild feminine in all her glory.

Now we are in potent, revolutionary times of the collective consciousness and changing our story.  This is my passion, by exploring your personal story through transpersonal astrology and the Hasidic myth of Lilith, we can track the energetic cords of disempowerment and discover a new map of freedom, purpose and authenticity.  Lilith is a powerful emissary.

experiential-astrology-mercury

We first look at the asteroid of Lilith which signifies Lilith confronting Adam in the Hasidic myth.  This is aspected in your chart by the Dark Maiden and when you first stood up to the rigid domination of patriarchal culture.

Next, we journey to the Dark Moon Lilith (DML) which is a second satellite to the earth and it perplexes astronomers because they don’t know if it really exists.  The Dark Moon Lilith encapsulates that hidden, rejected energy of Lilith who was banished to the desert.  Archetypally, she is the ‘exiled social outcast’ and the source of internalised wounding.  Dark Moon Lilith represents the shadow and if not owned or transmuted can turn into the poison of twisted pain where we project the dysfunctional dark feminine.  If internalised it can lead to self-hatred.  Lilith will only come out of the shadows to be healed when she feels safe.  It is vital not to stay stuck in this place, no matter how uncomfortable the ‘drawing out’ makes us feel.  It takes great strength, courage and vulnerability to do this rite of passage across the threshold to cultivate a loving and compassionate relationship with previously disowned parts of self.

Thirdly, the Black Moon Lilith (BML) is a powerful energy vortex, estranged in her relationship to the earth and the lunar moon.  The lunar moon has an elliptical orbit around the earth and therefore there are two center points of gravity.  The Black Moon Lilith is the second point of gravity and the furthest away ~ the lunar apogee.  The Black Moon Lilith is the intermediary state that brings through abstract, and at times multi-layered themes of scarred emotional patterning.  It is important in this liminal stage to access the sub-conscious and make it conscious , and to also release wounded cellular memories that have been stored in our physical bodies.  This interwoven metamorphosis with Lilith reawakens and rekindles our magnificent soul potential and wildness.  Her gift is to embrace the evolutionary process for humanity and progressive collective shift for our planet.  We are the Ones we have been waiting for.

When we understand with wisdom our personal story, we can then witness the unbinding of the chains, to live a rich life in primal creative existence with our organic world.  Our empowered and grace-filled voices can be heard in deep resolute union as we return home to the bountiful Garden of Eden ~ or maybe we never left.
