May we walk our paths of high holy truth as that is what is needed now more than ever. And so it is.

Ra Ma:

Greetings and gratitude. Welcome to Episode 101 of stars, stones and stories. Your gateway to cosmic mastery. We are slipping into a time of feeling as if all systems are moving forward once more. As this episode becomes live, we have Venus almost completely out of her shadow of retrograde. We'll be discussing that in this episode. And we have mercury on the 30th of September fully out of the retrograde shadow. As we are welcoming this potent Aries Full Moon almost lunar eclipse, it's not a lunar eclipse. However, the frequency of this Full Moon is really opening the gates to our October eclipse season. Eclipses are so potent. They're so powerful. And if you have a strong Cardinal energy in your chart, ...Cardinal these are the initiatory signs of the zodiac they open up the seasonal gates the Wheel of the Year on the solstices and the equinoxes. So we're speaking to Aries, cancer, Libra and Capricorn. And if you have your sun, moon or rising in any of these energies, or another prominent placement of your chart, particularly the angles of your chart,...

Ra Ma:

And a little disclaimer here in my professional practice of astrology, I rarely use whole sign houses. I have studied traditional astrology extensively through the school of traditional astrology crafted by Deborah houlding and I am a practitioner of Horary and through that study have come to really love the house system of Regiomontanus. So, that is my current preferred house system. Before that I used placidus which many astrologers, in our contemporary age have learned to use placidus. And whole sign houses are very kind of in vogue these days. In many ways, thanks to the astrology podcast and Chris Brennan and all of his work, which I deeply respect, and I respect the Hellenistic viewpoint, I have studied parts of Hellenistic astrology from Demetra George. She is one of my mentors in the field of astrology. However, I really believe in Regiomontanus, I believe in the need for angles of the chart. And if you use whole sign houses explicitly, there's a lot of information that gets lost in translation. That being said, I do love looking to whole sign houses, especially if someone doesn't have an accurate time of birth, there are ways we can calculate the chart and whole sign houses can be quite useful. And also when working with transits although I still use Regiomontanus when you use the theory behind whole sign houses, it can really help explain so much. So if these are topics that excite you, I just want you to know many of you out there, you know, I have a beginner's astrology course Skywalkers the last time we circled up for tutoring around astrology through Skywalkers was this spring of 2023. And in November, I will be teaching Skywalkers again, as well as Earthseed. Earthseed has not been taught at all in the year of 2023. And I have so many exciting updates to offer for both of these courses. So I'm really looking forward to that. We don't go super in depth into the house systems in Skywalkers, because it's a very beginner foundational course. However, once you've taken that course, you're eligible to take my intermediate astrology course which will be launching late this fall or early winter, so stay tuned, make sure you're receiving my weekly Venusian Love Notes, because that is the best way to stay on the pulse in these times. Receiving emails. So sacred, I cannot emphasize it enough as a small business owner and someone who has owned their own business since 2008. So I've been doing this for quite some time. And in the world we live in, it's really easy to lose information lose details, I think many of us know social media is not always the most reliable to stay up with the people that we want to follow. So old fashioned emails, it's like getting a letter in your inbox. If you are signed up for my Venusian Love Notes and they're not landing in your inbox, you just need to add support@earthseedtemplearts.com as a contact that you trust, and then you will receive those messages.

Ra Ma:

So as we have arrived into this frequency of eclipse season, we're going to be talking about the astrology over the next couple of weeks, that's going to lead us up to the Total Solar Eclipse in Libra. However, as we're getting to that point, I do want to emphasize so that you know, I have a beautiful community called Ma Magick that I've been stewarding for the past year. And it has come together over time from different offerings. I hosted through Patreon beginning in January of 2018. So this is a container that I've put a lot of love and devotion into. And Ma Magick is your gateway to cosmic mastery. Because we go much more in depth into these transits and into these experiences. It is a monthly journey into meditation, Star medicine, Goddess Consciousness, and elemental wisdom. And when I say goddess, I mean yes, very much the Divine Feminine but within that God is contained. And through Ma Magick, there's a prayer that you can transcend the chaos of these times. It is a sacred space meticulously crafted to illuminate your sovereignty. This is an astrologically based community guided by the phases of the moon with a deepening into your own understanding of astrology, how it's working with your own chart, how to connect with higher realms, how to align yourself with the eternal ancient wisdom of the elements and lots of cues and prompts for meditation. So if you're looking to align with cosmic rhythms to crystallize your dreams, I invite you to join Ma Magick and I'm gonna be explaining a little bit more about the changes I've made to Ma Magick later on in this episode. If you are interested, I will be raising the monthly investment with the Libra Eclipse. So now is the time to join because you will lock in the current monthly investment of $44. And you'll be a legacy member. This Friday the 29th of September, we have our Aries Full Moon at six degrees Aries 5:57am. So this is Eastern Daylight Time. So you're going to want to adjust for your time zone. With any full moon we have the sun directly opposing the moon. So the sun on Equinox last weekend just entered into the sign of Libra, we are in the season of truth of harmony of equity of justice. And it's so fascinating because many of you probably know I have a deep connection with Egyptian cosmology. I traveled to Egypt regularly. I'm so blessed to steward these pilgrimages for initiates to go through a deep transformative experience in Egypt on this extremely ancient and future timeless, powerful land. And because of that, I have a deep connection to the Neteru, the Neteru are the gods and the goddesses of Egyptian cosmology. And they are literally these aspects of the divinity of nature. In fact, Neteru means nature. For me for many years now I have associated Libra season with The Goddess Ma'at. And this year in particular as we come into Libra season, in Ma Magick, we will be traversing quite profoundly and working with Ma'at in a very special special way. I was away this past weekend, during the equinox I was just north of Chicago at the fifth global pyramid conference and I presented a talk 'the mystery of pyramids as portals for time bending'. And I'm really excited to share that talk with you later on when it can be released to the public, which should be around January of 2024. However, what is so fascinating is that right before I left, a local brother in the community that I live in, brought me some beautiful gifts that he needed to pass along sacred items, very holy items. And in that was a gorgeous papyrus from Egypt of Ma'at and a figure of Ma'at as well, having been to Egypt many times I have quite a collection of papyri. And I have some beautiful alabaster figures of Hathor and Sekhmet, and Isis and other beings, Horus. I didn't have anything representing Ma'at in that way. And so it felt really powerful that she was coming in so strong. In fact, I brought the figure of her to the pyramid conference where she sat on my table. And when we think of Ma'at, she weighs the heart when one crosses over before they can cross over as they're going through their death journey. The heart, the ib, is incredibly sacred in Egyptian cosmology. I also have studied for a number of years and to the realm of Dallas stone medicine. And also in Dallas practice. The heart is so incredibly important. And I think many of us know the frequency and the power of our hearts. As Yogi's, we bow and we place our head to the earth because when we do that the heart comes over the head and the heart is taking its throne essentially. And so our hearts actually contain a much higher frequency of intelligence than the brain or the mind does. Our hearts are sacred time travel devices and it's something that I have consciously woven into my work for many years. Now if you've been following me or circling up with me, you've heard me say this before. And it is something that I really mean and I really believe in and it is a practice I've come to deeply work with. It is through the field of the heart that you have the ability to literally travel through time and space. And in an eclipse season. This is very important as well because your heart carries your truth. At the end of the day, there is no being, there is no teacher, there is no master, there is no guru that can tell you what lives within your heart. Only you can tap into your own frequential wisdom within your heart, the four chambers of the sacred living organ, that literally when we consider the main chakras, the seven main chakras of the body, and the heart is at the center. And as we come into Libra season, and as we're preparing for these really profound eclipses, eclipses that will instigate new courses of action for many people, but especially for those that have a prominent Aries, cancer, Libra or Capricorn placement. The heart is going to be your guide. And so when we consider goddess Ma'at weighing the feather, her sacred feather against your heart to see: Did you live a good life? Did you live in integrity? Did you uphold truth? Did you speak your truth? Did you clear the burdens and move through them? Or do you come to death carrying a chain of boulders and so Ma'at is the keeper of the threshold and she is the keeper and the wielder of Divine Cosmic Law. So Ma'at is extremely important in this Libra season. And as we come to this Aries full moon, the Libra Sun is conjunct the goddess Pallas Athene the goddess of the high mind in Libra. So there's a high minded creative order coming into place. And in the various ways we feel like our world has flipped upside down over the last few years, I believe with this series of eclipses that we're going to experience between now and next fall of 2024. They will be working to rectify deeds, actions, words that have been out of alignment that have caused harm. And as humans, we are all in this together, we are all figuring this out. We are in a great process of learning with one another.

Ra Ma:

On this Aries Full Moon with the moon being in the sign of the "I am" frequency - the warrior that is coming to meet up with Chiron conjunct the North Node in Aries, there is a Dharma, a destiny for all of us in the collective in our own individual lives to really sink into our healing, which means to look deeply within, to be very honest with ourselves to say, "what can I shift? Where can I change my behavior?" so that it is in service to my mission here on Earth in these times, so that my behavior reflects my value system. And so that my behavior, and my thoughts, and the way that I speak all come into alignment. And this is one of the most profound tests we are all facing here on Earth. So what I share with you is not necessarily something that should come easy, it is something we strive for, and we work towards, and we work towards in a sacred way and then a loving way. And in a way of celebration and devotion to the beauty of this earth and the beauty of nature and the beauty of getting to be human here as an old way is crumbling and a new way of living and creating culture on earth is literally being birthed. So we're in such a profound time and this Full Moon is going to help illuminate for you what you can be working with. Over the next year through the series of eclipses that we will go through this fall of 2023, spring of 2024 and fall of 2024.

Ra Ma:

On Wednesday, the fourth of October Mercury shifts into Libra and this shift will take place between the fourth of October until around the 22nd of October depending on your timezone. So Mercury is going to speed through the sign of Libra, having done his retrograde dance and cleared out of that. And so mercury, this archetype of Hermes, Tahuti, Thoth has learned quite a lot in the journey of the Virgo retrograde has distilled wisdom for you, and Mercury going direct and moving into Libra. In this eclipse season is going to assist you in rectifying your speech and your thoughts. Thought, word and deed are very essential topics to be ruminating with this eclipse season.

Ra Ma:

On Venus day, the sixth of October, we will arrive at the last quarter moon at 13 degrees, three arc minutes cancer. This is our closing Moon bringing us next to the balsamic state as we prepare for the Eclipse. So this last quarter moon in cancer on Venus day the sixth of October is going to give you an opportunity to reflect back over the entire lunar cycle. And that week, which you seated with the Virgo New Moon, which had that beautiful Grand Earth Trine really supporting your ability to manifest and to anchor in solid intentions and visions for the future. I know many people have mixed feelings out there around this concept of manifestation. For me, it is like consciously seating your future is about being not only the driver of your ship, but also the navigator asking yourself where is it that I want to go. Of course, in many respects here in this incarnation, we are in the hands of the Divine we are in a collaboration with the divine. And I also believe that we can assist in the navigation process. And so as we use the phases of the moon, you can become very clear about what you're calling in, what you're celebrating, what you're letting go. What you are alkalizing. It's quite profound and it's quite beautiful. On Saturday, the seventh of October, Venus will officially clear her shadow of retrograde and so the Venus retrograde that opened with that front end shadow on the 19th of June will be complete. And then the following day on the eighth of October Sunday, Venus shifts into Virgo she will be in the sign of virgo until the eighth of November where she will shift into Libra. And so Venus in Virgo is... she is in the frequency of the priestess, she is in the frequency of service and love and devotion. And in Venus in Virgo season. When we are in our shadow energy we can be highly neurotic and hypercritical. So this is something to be mindful of and conscious and aware of how are you showing up in this Venus in Virgo season? And how are you adjusting your life from the Venus in Leo retrograde because every single one of us really went through a profound transformation, a deeply personal transformation something that assisted in connecting you with your inner child.

Ra Ma:

On Tuesday the 10th of October, the outer planet that some say is not a planet Pluto stations Direct. We know that Pluto dipped into the sign of Aquarius in March of this year and then Pluto went retrograde the spring and it was early June when Pluto shifted back into Capricorn in that retrograde so on the 10th of October, Pluto stations Direct and we really want to be looking to the world's authority figures at this time because a lot has changed. Inspired around these late degrees of Capricorn, many cultural events political events that we experienced in 2020, and 2021, are connected to these late degrees of Capricorn. So it's important to just sort of observe and be aware, however, your main job on this planet is to do you, to dive deep within to focus on your internal work.

Ra Ma:

As I say, at the closing of this podcast, every episode: "you are a hologram for the collective". And what that means is that what goes on in your internal world lives out in the external collective reality, the way that each one of us can make the most profound lasting shifts is by shifting from deep within ourselves and our psyches, and our inner worlds.

Ra Ma:

On Thursday, the 12th of October, we have Mars shifting into Scorpio, Mars will be coming into one of its home signs where it is very comfortable. And that energy is going to help with taking action and taking initiative, it will also bring in the realm of mystery that comes through around the season of Samhain. So for those of us here in the Northern Hemisphere, we have welcomed in Fall Equinox, and the southern hemisphere, you all have welcomed in spring equinox, and our next solar gate, respectively, at Samhain and Beltane. And these are profound portals of connecting in with the realm of nature and the other world through the unseen ones like the fairies, the elves, the dwarves, the Giants, the dragons, the dragon energy for us in the north, is going deeper into the earth, which is reminding each one of us have the power and the potency of going deep into the earth.

Ra Ma:

And this entire eclipse season is all about your connection to your identity, and the presence that you exude hear on the planet, and how you relate to others based off of that identity. So we can expect in this series of eclipses for our relationships to transform in many ways people may exit our lives, new relationships will most likely enter, some relationships will become challenged, other relationships will open up and become quite expansive. And what is so key throughout this series of eclipses is that you're constantly becoming aware of your own traumas and dramas around how you have related particularly the programs you learned in early childhood. Because unconsciously we project those onto others. However, when we make those parts of ourselves conscious, and we do our own internal healing work, we free up the relationships that we're so blessed to have in our lives in these times. And that is where magic can really happen. Because that is where collective reality can shift vastly, and how we're relating to one another.

Ra Ma:

I was so grateful to have some time with very like minded people at the pyramid conference over the equinox. It was held in the gold pyramid house. And there were so many amazing authentic artifacts that were brought back from Egypt and that live in this pyramid house. The information that I received from the other presenters, there was literally gold within the topics that were covered and the information that was exchanged. And although it was on the smaller side, there were probably about 100, Maybe a little over 100 people in total. It was perfect. It was exactly what it needed to be. And it felt like everyone there although we were very different in many ways... people some had come from different parts of the United States, other people had flown in from different parts of the world. You could feel there was a harmonious thread that was bringing us together, which obviously is pyramids.

Ra Ma:

Pyramid consciousness is something I am very passionate about. Particularly Since my first time within the king's chamber of the Great Pyramid in the late part of 2018, I had a very profound experience. And it was really inspiring to hear other people's experiences in the king's chamber. And the amount of what we could say supernatural or paranormal activity that happens in the Great Pyramid really speaks volumes. And what's also amazing is that more people are waking up to how powerful pyramids are. And simultaneously, pyramids are beginning to pop up all over the earth, ones that people never knew about. And I expect we're going to continue to experience this more and more as we move into this new earth architecture that we're each one of us we are building in these times. So I'm really excited to share more with you all.

Ra Ma:

I'm in the process of updating my website and some of my offerings, which you should see all of this come live by the Libra New Moon. And I realized that I've kind of fallen asleep at the wheel in blogging over these years. There's a lot of information I share and other ways, but I really want to be writing more extensively about my experiences and what I've learned and share it with you all. So I want to invite you, if you're looking for some extra support in this eclipse season, I want to invite you to a mini course that I'm going to be offering you can sign up via the link in the show notes. Or you can just go to my website Earthseedtemplearts. This is an eclipse empowerment, six day mini course to help you thrive amidst transformation, it is going to be $22 to invest in this course. And I am making this incredibly affordable because I want all of you to sign up for this. If you've been following my work. I've been giving these complimentary guides to eclipse season off and on since 2016. And I just realized like I want to go more deep and I want to make it into a six day mini course. So each day has a teaching that is very digestible, but it gives you a moment to integrate. So this course is going to launch in early October and so you can complete it, you will complete it before the eclipse on the 14th. So it's going to launch on Saturday, the seventh of October and these are the topics we're going to explore. So you can see if this is something you want to receive. What is an eclipse covering historical and cultural context? Eclipse phenomenon. The astrological influences the mystery of eclipses and time bending. October's Eclipse dates and times and the unique astrological influence, Eclipse rituals and viewing tips, practices on how to thrive in an eclipse portal. This mini course is going to offer you everything you're going to need to feel like you've got it covered in the eclipse season. So I invite you to sign up for that.

Ra Ma:

I will also be offering the Libra Dark Moon women's wisdom Council and that is going to be on Friday, Venus day the 13th of October. That will be in person here in West Asheville, and then for the duration of the eclipse as I've been doing since the spring of 2022. I will be offering a solar eclipse Council on Saturday the 14th of October the sixth from 11am to 5pm Eastern Daylight Time and it will cover the entire duration of the eclipse with deep meditation and ceremony and sound healing so that you can do the heavy lifting with the Eclipse. These are some of the most profound times to be in ceremony and meditation.

Ra Ma:

As always, I am available for one on one astrologicl divination sessions, you can add on Tarot. I'm also offering private Kundalini sessions. And finally, I just wish to invite you once more to join Ma Magick if you are called. Within this manifestation council for wisdom keepers. You will receive every month a monthly astrological transit calendar that's downloadable. Highlighting the major astrological events, you will receive a new moon transmission from me. It's an audio transmission much like these podcasts but way more in depth, a new moon intention setting guide, you will have the opportunity to circle up live for the first quarter monthly meditation and Tea community circle where we're going to come together we're going to meditate. And we're going to talk about how the astrology has shifted since the new moon and you're gonna have an opportunity to be seen and witnessed and held in a container of healing and love. Every full moon there is a celestial sound healing, which is alive and recorded broadcast to celebrate the full moon with an astrological transmission, meditation and sound healing on the last quarter moon reflections are going to be offered so that you can consider how your personal astrology is intertwined with the patterns that have moved through that entire lunar cycle. And then a balsamic Moon prompt for dream time. As we come to the Dark of the Moon, you will also receive a cosmic playlist and there's going to be community connection that is building so you can engage with your fellow ma Magi ways you can share your own creations, there's going to be a community marketplace.

So if you're feeling called to join, you can lock in now the monthly investment of $44, which is going to be increasing to 77 monthly on the 13th of October because when I went through all of this, I realized I am offering a value of over $240 a month. And I work really hard to build this content for you all and to be present and available. And I've realized I've been really under charging and undervaluing what I've crafted and so that investment will increase. And if you wish to come in as a legacy member at 44 a month, now is the time to do so. Thank you so much for circling up in this podcast. I wish you and your lineage a multitude of blessings as we welcome in this Aries full moon and begin to ripple out through the Eclipse portal. Eclipses are absolutely times of time bending and timeline hopping. We will be exploring all of that in the Eclipse empowerment mini course. And I just wish for you to open your eyes open your ears, open your senses to the beauty and the magic of this time here on earth.

Ra Ma:

May there be peace to the east. May there be peace to the south. May there be peace to the west. May there be peace to the north. May there be peace deep in the heart of Mother Earth. May that peace spiral out through the cosmos and then thread back spiraling right into your heart. And so it is. Ase.
