Episode 68

Ra Ma:

Welcome to stars, stones and stories. I am your host Rama and together we are reading Ancient Future wisdom as we birth the New Earth. If you're into astrology, cosmology, living mythology, earth based spirituality and ancestral healing, you are home. If you've stumbled upon this podcast and are new to these topics, this is sovereign sanctuary to expand and deepen your wisdom. As a cosmic priestess, I witness many at the threshold of great transformation. I specialize in astrological divination, sacred site activations and priestess arts for the Aquarian Age.

This community is your opportunity to claim your story, your unique identity and power knowing that you are the hero of your own journey. You are a hologram for the collective and you matter. The world needs your gifts and creativity now more than ever. Crystallize your medicine.

Ra Ma:

Oh great ancient ones, great ancestors, we call to you. May you hear the voices of your descendants traversing through time and space. We humbly ask for your support, your wise medicine ways and your genius solutions in these times. Dear ancestors, we wish to partner with you for we know we cannot do this alone. As we traverse the mystery we ask that you, our starry ancestors are with us each breath of the way. May we have clarity of mind and Crystaline vision to see through the dark. 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:

Although we've completed the Eclipse portal in so many ways, we are in deep deep integration. And the past week has had so many interesting alignments with Venus and Saturn and Mars and Neptune. And this week's astrology that is coming also is very rich with a lot of different aspects that can be stretching us in many different ways. And I encourage you to have grace and grit and compassion for the next week in a very conscious direct way. The more you can lean into that the more you will be greatly supported.

Ra Ma:

So beginning on Saturday, the third of December, Neptune stations Direct. Now Neptune has been retrograde for some months and Neptune as the planet that represents the high heart it is seen by many astrologers as like a higher octave of Venus. So Neptune although it can speak to our love and values, it's more on a spiritual etheric plane. It connects us with our altruistic love, the sense of community unity consciousness, and Neptune is very much connected to the realms of Pisces so we can think of the mystical, creative, expansive realms that are very flowy and illusory and where boundaries dissolve and where we merge into this collective field. So when we have strong Neptune transits, we can have a sense of losing ourselves and losing our identity. And this is something I personally have been really working with as I've been going through my Neptune square Neptune mid life activation transit since March of 2020. So funny how that has aligned hmm. And I will be free and clear in the middle of January and I'm so looking forward to coming to stable ground once more.

Ra Ma:

If you don't know much about the midlife activation transits, I encourage you to consider booking a one on one divination session with me. This is something I'm really passionate about guiding people through. Many people know about the Saturn Return, which really ushers us into adulthood. But then we go through these various midlife activation points, all humans experience them. And they are quite phenomenal and they really stretch us. So when Neptune stations Direct on that particular day, and it is at 7:15pm Eastern Standard Time, so adjust for your timezone. But as Neptune stations Direct, you want to be very spacious in your time and what you're up to, because you really want to be in the flow. When these outer planets station and even the inner ones, we can really sense them and feel them and they can be palpable moments. And so this weekend is a really beautiful time to do spiritual expansive work. And I encourage you to do that the previous weekend as well. Neptune is stationing at 23 degrees Pisces, technically 22 degrees 39 arc minutes. And it is an opportunity as it is in its home sign of Pisces to really take these eliminations that you might experience at a peak experience or the clear realizations that are distilled to you from the other world and to anchor them. Anchor them into everyday existence. That is what Neptune is wishing to assist you with this weekend particularly. Also we have mercury approaching the galactic center.

Ra Ma:

We spoke about the Great Attractor in Episode 67. And the galactic center is another very sensitive point. It is known to be the womb of the Milky Way Galaxy, our galaxy that we reside in. And the galactic center is roughly 27 degrees Sagittarius. It's a very sensitive point that connects us to our multi dimensional nature, to our intergalactic sisterhood, brotherhood, communal resonance of our human family that most likely goes way beyond planet Earth. When we connect with the galactic center through different planets, I've been noticing this for a number of years I'm really really interested in the galactic center and the Great Attractor and when we connect with them, it is a very otherworldly experience, especially when Mercury is approaching because mercury is the communicator.

Ra Ma:

And many of you have been longtime followers of star stones and stories know how I love to connect to mercury to Thoth, Tahuti from ancient Egypt. And Mercury brings us into this liminal space. Mercury is the psycho pomp he is the bridge between this world and the other world. And so when this bridge goes into the galactic center and into that Cosmic Womb, there is a lot that is available to be received. And so for me this weekend, I have time already booked on my calendar to be writing. And I have a book that I began many years ago and I'm hoping to get it complete. It's probably not realistic to finish by 2022. But definitely in December, I'm taking some good chunks of time to work on it because we've got that connection to the galactic center. So on Saturday, Mercury is approaching and then fully aligned this Sunday, the fourth of December, and also on the fourth of December the moon shifts into Taurus and the Moon is exalted in Taurus. It's a time to really connect with our sensuality, the pleasures that we enjoy. The moon is waxing it's building. It's always a good time to circle back to your new moon intentions and to be taking action steps in your life to bring your dreams into reality.

Ra Ma:

And Taurus moons are just such beautiful times to be cozy at home, to bake, to cook, to light candles, to dance, to take baths. Or if there are things you need to fix up around the house or if you want to be with friends in a very cozy environment, it's a really good time to enjoy. And the moon will be in Taurus through Tuesday and then it shifts into Gemini preparing us for the Gemini Full moon that is coming.

Ra Ma:

On Tuesday, the fifth of December mercury will also shift into Capricorn. So Mercury has been in Sagittarius and after traveling over that sensitive Galactic Center, which connects with the Golden Gate of God. And the Golden Gate of God is such a beautiful point that it is believed many souls travel through the Golden Gate of God and then land in their incarnation. After passing through the silver gate of man, which is at roughly 28 degrees Gemini, we had a potent potent full moon, it was a super moon last December. And it was very close to winter solstice. And that full moon was directly conjunct the silver gate of man, opposing the Golden Gate of God with the sun on the Golden Gate of God. So there's something that might still be alive for you from that last Gemini Full Moon. And you might want to take some time to reflect upon where you were at that full moon and what was happening for you. I was blessed to be with a beautiful group of women in between the paws of the Sphinx and within the Great Pyramid. As we were culminating a journey of pilgrimage in that potent Eclipse portal that was opened conjunct the Great Attractor and there was something so sweet. Once we got to that Gemini Full Moon, there was a lot of intensity leading up to it. But there was a real sweetness that got opened in that space.

Ra Ma:

And the galactic center, I always associate it with like the nectar of the bees as a sacred golden honey like a vortex that is very nourishing and sustaining in our lives. So as Mercury shifts into Capricorn, the way that we are communicating, the way that information has been exchanged, wishes to be activated, it wishes to be more disciplined, more enterprising, and more grounded and focused upon the vision in a sense of how do we bring it into 3D reality? How do you manifest in this incarnation? How do you build those dreams aground and so Mercury is going to be assisting in that journey. And we will soon be experiencing a Mercury Retrograde in December. So that is also something to note that we are already entering that sort of liminal space, even though Mercury is shifting into Capricorn. And we're going to be working with that frequency throughout the month of December. And I want to share with you about this Gemini Full Moon because it is a powerful, powerful, powerful full moon it is aligned on Wednesday, which is mercury day, this Full Moon is ruled by Mercury.

Ra Ma:

And this is the seventh of December, it is aligned at 11:07pm. Eastern Standard Time. So some places in the world will be celebrating, being illuminated by this Full Moon on Thursday, the eighth of December. And this is like a long nights moon which is concluding the integration of this entire solar year, this circle of the Wheel of the Year that we began as we opened up Winter Solstice of 2021. So we're coming to the completion of this Wheel of the Year and this is the last full moon until Solstice. And this moon is very, very significant as we're culminating this year of the lovers this year of the ancestors this year of Hieros Gamos

Ra Ma:

The Moon is directly conjunct Mars Retrograde, Mars Retrograde and the moon are just like four arc minutes apart, and they're roughly at 16 degrees Gemini. But we would round that up to 17 degrees as we're considering the Sabian symbol for this. And I'm not going to go into too much depth about that, but I do want to say that numerologically This degree, the 17 degrees Gemini connects with the number 77. 77 is a master frequency, it is a series of seven elevens and 11 is one one. So it is that unity consciousness doubled down. It is a multiplication of the unity field. And 11 brings us the power to manifest our dreams and our desires.

Ra Ma:

11 For many people can be seen as like an illumination that you are on the right path to keep going yes, the signs and Synchronicities are appearing. And when we consider the number seven, it relates to the field of trust and openness. So there's something that we're being asked to trust and open to on a higher dimensional level. Remember that Mercury has just passed over the galactic center and we'll be tracing backwards as it goes retrograde. And this is a very liminal field we are skirting through and this Mars Retrograde where we are when this Gemini Full Moon comes within. We are at the midpoint of the Mars Retrograde and I'm going to be offering a Mars, well, I already offered the Mars masterclass but I'm going to be offering a 2023 masterclass and You are cordially invited to circle up with us. It's going to be a live virtual teaching and will be recorded if you cannot come live. And I'm going to be sharing about the key highlights of 2023 and also we're going to be celebrating this year of 2022 as it is the Gemini Full Moon as the last full moon has been the year of the lovers which in the Major Arcana. The number six correlates to the lovers and the lovers card and the Tarot correlates to the sign of Gemini. So there's a lot of overlay happening here a lot of signs and synchronicities. And if you can sink into that subtle field, there's a lot you can receive. So I hope you'll consider joining us for the 2023 masterclass, so you can get all of the insights around next year's Retrogrades and the eclipses and the other important alignments namely Pisces shift into, oh sorry, Saturn shift into Pisces and Pluto shift into Aquarius. I mean, there is some phenomenal, groundbreaking astrology happening next year.

Ra Ma:

As we consider the 17 degrees Gemini this is all about how we can dissolve into a more mature style of thinking. And this connects very much to how you may know your true self, and that others are reflected in you.

Ra Ma:

There's something as well about this Full Moon that very much anchors into the crystal element of Amethyst. And Amethyst is such a powerful stone, I teach about it in my course EarthSeed, which by the way, we will be circling back again with EarthSeed in the spring of 2023. I'm super excited to journey with you all through that who are called to learn more about the stones and how to connect them with the chakras in your body. Alongside the cycles of the sun, and the moon, the solar gates and the lunar portals, and the more that we can align with the sun and the moon. And the stones which are essentially the bones of Mother Earth through the chakra as these wheels of light these energy portals in our body, the more that we can move through time and space, very conscious and grounded and anchored and embodied. We are meant to yes connect to our multi dimensional nature in this lifetime and to be embodied to be grounded. And so with that if you do like to work with stones, I do recommend working with amethyst, from the time that you're listening to this episode through the week of the Gemini Full Moon. Amethyst is so beautiful it balances the intellectual, emotional and physical bodies. And that harmonizes the brain's hemispheres, supporting our immune system, the endocrine system, the nervous system. And when one holds amethyst, it allows for you to really integrate, particularly the left and right hemispheres of the brain to come into this very beautiful, grounded intellectual mental space that's very healthy and agile. Amethyst also gives us freedom from addiction. It clears the auric field, it stabilizes any kind of dysfunctional energy in the body, it bestows stability and strength, invigoration and peace. And it is really powerful because from the Taoist perspective, Amethyst goes deep into the marrow of the bones. And it helps to like recode, reprogram the marrow. And simultaneously it connects with the Crown Chakra. So it opens the crown, it activates the crown and it allows one to draw upon higher guidance from spirit guides and angelic forces and gods and goddesses and whatever sort of high holy beings that you may consciously or unconsciously connect with. Amethyst is a beautiful bridge. And I really encourage you to work with amethyst, as we're moving through the Gemini Full Moon because there's a massive kind of level of awareness that's coming through as we're at this midpoint of the Mars Retrograde journey.

Ra Ma:

And something I've been sharing with this Mars Retrograde is that there's a lot of psyche excavation that is possible for you to take on a new mental body, and in turn a whole new identity with this Mars Retrograde and it is so cosmic that this Mars Retrograde is taking us through the end of the year of the lovers and into 2023.

Ra Ma:

So 2023 is for many of us, it's like a whole new level of moving through planet Earth, really, really now starting to anchor the template of the New Earth, for the last few years meaning 2019 and 2020 and 2021 There's been a lot of destruction of the old paradigms, and that's still happening. And in 2022, we've begun to be seeding more of this new earth and when we come into 2023 There's a lot more motivation to build anew. So Mars Retrograde is serving your highest consciousness so that you move through time and space more purified and more aligned to your true essence.

Ra Ma:

This Gemini Full Moon for some people is going to feel like a Mercury retrograde on steroids. It is again working on your behalf so be patient. And with the full moon, Venus is right on top of the galactic center and the sun is right near... has just past the Great Attractor. Mercury has just shifted into pragmatic Capricorn and wishes to take action. However, you most likely can expect some interesting tech issues. So if you can unplug and commune with the stars, you will be golden.

Ra Ma:

May you and yours thrive in these times as we continue to evolve and to anchor and this template of the New Earth reality. Thank you so much for circling up. 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 that peace thread deep down into the heart of Mother Earth, Terra Gaia and spiral out into the cosmos, out into the galactic center and into the Great Attractor Beyond The Beyond The Beyond. Threading back through the crown of your head and anchoring into the center of your hearts. And so it is, and so it is, and so it is. Ase
