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:

Welcome to episode 89 of stars, stones and stories. We are literally retrograding through the eclipses and you are being asked to move through the density of your experience and to utilize the momentum of this particular Eclipse portal to burn up the dross, to use that frequency of the dragon to assist you in burning up the dross of your incarnation and what is ready to be cleared. And perhaps there are ties to other incarnations and other places and spaces your soul has journeyed where old paradigms no longer serve. And at this time, as I'm recording this podcast, we are at the end of the month of April. It is a Friday, a Venus day. We have just passed through the first quarter moon from that new moon, the second Aries moon of the calendar year of 2023 that brought in the Eclipse, this bridge Eclipse if you will, in the sense that it has been bridging many realities and bridging signs of the zodiac and ways of being and really what we have been dissolving from the old paradigm and what we're building with this new Earth consciousness. And as we have passed through the first quarter moon in leo, which was exact Thursday, Jupiter day evening now the moon is coming to a precise square of Uranus and Taurus and the moon has over the last couple of days been conjunct and coming towards that marriage with a Black Moon Lilith.

Ra Ma:

And so we have, each one of us have been going deep into our own kind of psyche experiences of our shadow selves. As Black Moon Lilith in Leo will really help to point you in the direction of where you self sabotage and where you are really getting in your own way, and where your ego... where the stories continue to kind of produce themselves and accumulate. And so as this moon is coming to square Uranus and Taurus, there's a reflection available for you to also see where the dramatic, radical changes need to occur.

Ra Ma:

As we've been journeying for quite some time since 2018, with Uranus in Taurus, each one of us is being asked to also make our lives aligned with our value system. And this whole conversation around value system is very much up for review, in this spring beltane Eclipse portal. Also, what we're experiencing right now is that the sun is approaching Mercury retrograde. And so given that, and the fact that this upcoming Monday, on the first of May Pluto, also stations retrograde in Aquarius. There is a powerful time right now, because we're in this like freefall, we're in this void. As we're in between two eclipses, and we have mercury retrograde and Pluto about to go retrograde. It's just a very powerful time of deep reflection and reorientation and recalibration after you have entered through the consciousness of the Dragon's Crown. And so that first eclipse really brought in a lot of gifts of insight and clarity. And now it is time to get into that density of where the stories continue to circle through your psyche, where they've been embedded. Where, you know, where does that cellular blueprint exist, that is no longer serving you. And essentially, you're being asked, like, what are you going to do about it? Are you ready to make that change? Are you ready to take a leap. And how we may do that is through right action, through aligned action. And by continually showing up by holding the frequency.

Ra Ma:

I spoke about this in the last couple of episodes in relationship to time bending, and how, when you want to bend time, or when you want to literally like jump into a new timeline, it is so much about focusing on the frequency of that new timeline and holding it, holding it even in the moments of resistance. And so where we are in this eclipse journey is a time where you most likely are really being shown very clearly where your resistance is. And it's not fun to feel that it usually doesn't feel good. It's where we can really see how we continue to repeat the same stories over and over again. However, I invite you to look at this. And these parts of yourself with curiosity, not with judgment, or shame, or blame or feeling like let down like in the sense like "Oh, I'm never gonna change", you know, those ways will not serve you and ultimately, all of our existence here on this planet is holy. Our journey from darkness to light each moment It is a moment of holiness. And as you can claim that and claim all parts of yourself as necessary for the journey, that is where the real healing occurs and that is where the ability to surrender also occurs. So on the first of May Monday we have Pluto stationing retrograde at zero degrees 32 arc minutes Aquarius Pluto entered Aquarius on the 23rd of March and will be retrograde until the 10th of October. And just next month on the 11th of June, Pluto will re enter the sign of Capricorn. So essentially from the 23rd of March until the 11th of June, it is our opportunity to have received the sneak peek, so to speak of what Pluto and Aquarius is bringing us collectively. And this Pluto retrograde is going to give us an opportunity collectively and personally, to really like prepare ourselves for the massive generational shifts that will be coming our way.

Ra Ma:

And so it is a really interesting time over the next months to reflect upon how your life has shifted since Pluto went into Aquarius, maybe it's obvious, maybe it's more subtle. And just kind of sit with that and think about how do you want to move forward. Because for many of us, Pluto in Aquarius is bringing a lot of like technological upgrades and possibilities. And simultaneously, I think a lot of us also are really desiring to build stronger relationships with the natural world. And so we have this opportunity where we can utilize the technological advances to actually make our lives feel more fulfilled. And also simultaneously develop stronger boundaries with our technology so that we can really utilize technology with more spiritual maturity, meaning having the ability to stop mindlessly scrolling, or to just go into that addictive realm with your device. And really getting back into the roots of the way humans have lived for so long, like going out into the garden and admiring the bees and laying down on the earth and allowing the sun to kiss your face and going on walks with your beloved's or making a beautiful meal, right like these simple acts of pleasure are so important, especially in this precise Eclipse portal.

Ra Ma:

So on the second of May Tuesday Pallas Athene, the asteroid goddess of the high creative mind shifts into Leo, bringing a possibility for you to attune to your creativity and your passions and newfound ways. And meanwhile, Juno enters into the sign of Gemini, Juno another goddess representing what one is married to and collectively, as Juno shifts from Taurus to Gemini. We are drawn into that space of Yin and Yang and masculine and feminine and this dance between duality, this dance that can ultimately assist you in aligning with your own Hieros Gamos, your own internal sacred marriage. And as we're building to this penumbral lunar eclipse in Scorpio on the fifth of May, Friday, the fifth of May is a powerful day because it is the day of solar and lunar Beltane. Calendar Beltane is on the first of May. And this year solar and lunar coincide with the Scorpio Full Moon, The Eclipse. Beltane is such a beautiful time of year, as here in the Northern Hemisphere, we are coming to full life with spring at its peak. And we're in that cross quarter festival. These cross quarter festivals are times of fire and celebrating the elemental wisdom of fire and being out in nature. In the Northern Hemisphere, the days are getting longer and warmer. The Earth's energies are at their most active now. And we're seeing this increase in manifestation and fertility. It is a time where the life force of the Earth is at its most potent and powerful place. And therefore you have this ability to tap into that and to use this expansive energy in your own life. This is the festival of fertility, the festival of expectation, the Feast of life, very much connected to May Day celebrations involving Maypole dancing. And this weaving of the ribbons which really is here to weave the masculine and the feminine energies, the polarity, the duality, this Hieros Gamos. Beltane was a traditional time when all fires were put out in a special new fire, a need-fire was lit and people would jump over this to cleanse themselves. Couples would jump over this fire to pledge themselves to one another. And the veils are quite thin at Beltane, just as they are at Samhain. So in the southern hemisphere, you all are welcoming in the time of year of Samhain and this real kind of resurrection energy and in the northern hemisphere. As we are preparing to move to the summer solstice, we are coming closer and closer to this peak of sunlight and the conscious outward expression of ourselves a time of great fertility and positivity, where you may bridge the sacred fire and the sacred water elements welcoming the opposing frequencies.

Ra Ma:

So this penumbral lunar eclipse in Scorpio, on the fifth of May aligns at 14 degrees 58 arc minute Scorpio. It's a powerful Full Moon as the sun will be getting closer to that exact alignment with Uranus and Taurus. And so we are becoming very conscious as to where these radical shifts need to be made in our lives. And simultaneously, that Scorpios Moon is opposing Mercury Retrograde, and Uranus in Taurus and Vesta inTaurus and so as you're being asked to make these radical changes, you're being asked to really reflect upon your value system and where you're devoted in your life, and what is currently working for you because things are changing rapidly before all of our eyes.

Ra Ma:

And I would just like to remind you, we're in a long term marathon of great transformation. We've been feeling this collectively, definitely since 2019. And this journey is going to continue for a number of more years. And as this is a marathon, it means that you're not here to sprint, you're not here to like burn out your adrenals... you're here to pace yourself and to really sink in to your body and to be with the moment to learn how to be more present in the moment. And we discussed that in the last couple of episodes with this concept of time bending and how part of the power of time bending is really becoming conscious of each moment and not foreseen energy meaning following the trail of energy noticing where the energy is alive for you and each moment and following that like a breadcrumb trail and working with that frequency instead of attempting to plow through and push through and manifest in a way that is not conducive to the energy around you. So this time of Beltane that we are welcoming in this eclipse Portal also helps to conjure up the realm of the Fae, the fairy frequency, the little people, the unseen ones, the elves, the gnomes, all of the magical ones that tend the realm of nature. You are invited to make space for the liminal by celebrating the beauty of nature. This is in Dagara cosmology, we are in a year of nature. And this is the year of the rabbit. So there's a lot of trails of symbols that are reminding you to go to the natural world, to be in your joy, to be in your frequency of play. And as we are immersed within this eclipse season, the dragon frequency is very much alive, meaning we could say on some level that the dragon is moving through you. The dragon as this great elemental, Guardian, the dragon as a symbol of sovereignty, and truth and clarity of consciousness.

Ra Ma:

And so, may you take the time to reflect upon the power and the potency of this year of nature. May you take the time to bear witness to all that has already transformed for you, through you, with you, since the beginning of 2023. May you find the beauty in the unseen. And may that beauty inspire you to celebrate, to connect to your holy self by enjoying the sacred pleasures of life. And as we're fully immersed in Taurus season, that is absolutely the call. Look to Venus the planet that is Earth's elder sister, to remember to remind yourself to stay in joy, to slow down, to drink well, to eat well, to rest well, to sleep well, to find your pleasure points, and to increase them, to grow them, to give gratitude for what is here and now. To give gratitude for the lessons you have learned and to give gratitude for that which is coming your way. Your body is your temple and every moment is a miracle.

Ra Ma:

I would love to invite you to circle up and some upcoming events through Earthseed temple arts. In honor of this powerful eclipse that we're building to on the fifth of May Friday. I am hosting a Beltane, a Scorpio Eclipse council with yogic technology, deep meditation, a prayer circle, sound healing. This is a council where you may come in person in West Asheville or you can also come online. We will meet from 11am until 3:30pm Eastern Daylight Time. And that is the entire duration of the eclipse. Also on the 18th of May, from 7:30 to 9:30pm I'm offering a Taurus Dark Moon Council that's an in person, women's wisdom event here in West Asheville, and then on the 22nd of May Monday from 7:30 to 9:30pm Eastern Daylight Time. you're invited to circle up in this astrological masterclass for empowerment "discover your soul purpose within your birth chart", it's going to be so juicy.

Ra Ma:

All of these events, you may sign up via the show notes, bio link, or you can just go to Earthseedtemplearts.com and sign up there. Finally, I just want to share with you there are a few more spaces for you to come and be a part of this Dream seed incubation with the Blue Lotus, restoring the original blueprint. It is a summer solstice Egyptian Pilgrimage initiation in Egypt. The ninth through 24th of June 2023. And it's going to be so potent and we're working really strongly with the dream realm. We'll be gathering in sacred councils in a very particular way. Each night, before we go in for our rest and to like etherically prepare for the temples will be visiting the next day. And also to tap into the dream space in a very sacred, intentional way. Working with the Blue Lotus, it's going to be a powerful journey through Luxor, and the various temples there, some of the sacred tombs. We will also have a powerful sunrise, hot air balloon ride over Luxor. From there, we'll travel out to the Western Desert Oasis of Siwa. And it's going to be amazing, so many Holy healing waters, they're hot springs, Cleopatra's spring, and my most favorite, the salt flats that bring this a luscious, very cleansing salt water. And we'll culminate in Giza with a private ceremony in the king's chamber of the Great Pyramid and in between the paws of the sphinx on summer solstice. I absolutely love, love, love, pilgrimage, and to steward these journeys to Egypt is completely mind blowing, and such a gift and such an honor. And each year, those who are called to circle up, it's just always this perfect constellation. And a unique signature comes through. And this year, we're working so strong with a visionary, element and capacity. And this is your ability to really vision and land that vision in the tangible, earthly mundane day to day realm for the next couple of decades. So, this pilgrimage is a cauldron of transformation, but also deep ceremonial intention.

Ra Ma:

Thank you so much for circling up within another episode of Stars, stones and stories. I love that you're here. And always love hearing from you and how these episodes are landing and how you're navigating these times. So drop me a note, support@earthseedtemplearts.com If you wish to go deeper, perhaps you will come step into the inner Council of Ma magick.

Ra Ma:

May there be peace to the east, may there be peace to the south, may there be peace to the west and peace to the north. May that peace anchor deep into the heart of Mother Earth and spiral out throughout the cosmos. Threading back into your Sacred Heart, your sacred time travel device. So it is and so it is and so it is. Ase.
