Riding the dragon currents. Earlier this week, I was reflecting back on the time my daughter and I spent in Wales in July of this year 2022. In the month of June, we were in Egypt on pilgrimage with a group of beautiful sisters. And from there my daughter and I flew to London and for the first time ever I rented a camper van. And we drove from London to Avebury, to Glastonbury and some other spaces and then crossed into Wales. And it was such an amazing journey. It was filled with so many opportunities to stretch ourselves beyond our mental and emotional and physical capacity. And with that, there were so many gifts and one of the most beautiful gifts was driving in Wales. Wales is.. it's such special land. There's this real particular charge to the land there.

:

And I've always known how closely connected Wales is to the state to the dragon frequency, the dragon lines. You can still find the dragon on their flag and throughout all of Celtic Britain, that whole region Celtic Europe, you find layers upon layers of Dragon Lore that still exist today. And in various cultures around the world we find references to dragons. And as we are here in eclipse season, we're in the time of the Dragon serpent energy. It is very awake right now. For us in the northern hemisphere we have come out of the season of fall and have just entered into the season of Samhain. And so the dragon current is like going deeper and deeper into the earth, creating more of that rest, that time for great rejuvenation. Whereas in the southern hemisphere, there's that waking up energy. And when we were driving in Wales, there were just so many moments that I literally could feel like we were riding on the back of a dragon. That, for me, is one of the most important ways to sink into Eclipse energy. And as I give you this invitation, I would like you to imagine that you are in this eclipse portal literally riding the currents of a dragon, you're riding the dragons back. And the power with eclipses is within the ability to trace the energy. These are times of not foreseen anything to happen, but to follow the currents and to trace the energy. I know being human, it can be hard to do this. I myself struggle with this at times, and there are certain things that in my mind, they need to happen at this moment. However, eclipses really teach us how to surrender. And as they mark these major events, from death to birth, and other momentous beginnings and endings in our lives, we always know that when we come out of eclipse season, something major will have shifted in our lives. There is always some sort of ending and beginning.

:

And we're coming to the second eclipse in the Samhain eclipse season. And the second Eclipse is building on the first in the sense that, it is a total lunar eclipse. The north node is conjunct the moon, so the North Node is like the dragon's head. So we entered into the Samhain Eclipse portal through the dragon's tail and now we are coming out through the head, through the consciousness of the dragon and as we do so, Uranus and Taurus is directly conjunct this Full Moon and this is going to accentuate this entire Uranus and Taurus journey that we have been on since the Taurus New Moon in May of 2018. And it is also kind of like the peak astrology for 2022. So we're going to break this down a little bit in this episode. And I think it's going to really help serve you as you're working with the astrology over the course of the next week.

:

One thing I wanted to mention is that if you feel like you still haven't properly celebrated Samhain, this weekend is actually the peak time for your Samhain celebrations. Calendar Samhain was on the 31st of October. That's how we associate Halloween in many cultures. And we had lunar Samhain with the Scorpio New Moon. Solar Samhain is coming this weekend. And when we're in the season of solid, it is such a potent time to honor our ancestors, to honor the thinning of the veil. And that season where more darkness is coming and more mystery is coming. As Samhain is connected to the dark phase of the moon. This balsamic solar gate so to speak really allows us an opportunity to reflect back on the entire wheel of the year because within Samhain it is like there's a start and a stop to the Wheel of the Year. And there is a great closure that comes with this time. It is the time of the crone, of the hag, of the great magical one. One way you could celebrate Samhain this weekend is you could pour a spiral of salt on your floor And you could also do this in front of your door or outside. And if the space is large enough, you may walk in the center, where you will consciously leave the past behind. You can also light a sacred fire to burn that which you are shedding. And you can also take time to give thanks to your ancestors, your guardians, your guides, your angels, whatever sentient beings you like to work with. Most importantly, this is such a beautiful season to make space for divination.

:

On Monday, the seventh of November we come to the high autumn, Samhain, Shabbat. This is a time to divine, to release to the void, to open to the death portal and to create that sacred space of the ancestors. And then on Tuesday, the eighth of November we have the total lunar eclipse Taurus full moon. The totality of the eclipse will approximately be from three until 7am. Eastern Standard Time, the exact alignment of the full Moon is at 6:01am Eastern Standard Time, so you will want to adjust for your own timezone.

:

As I mentioned, one of the key features of this eclipse is that the moon is both conjunct Uranus and the North Node. All three of these are in the sign of Taurus, this earth energy that is symbolized by the bull, the builder. It is a frequency of sustaining, of drawing energy in. This is a time to be in our sensuality, and to be considering what really creates and cultivates pleasure for you and your life. We can think of the frequency of "I have". Taurus is very much focused on our resources, and can be associated with the archetype of the lover, the courtisan, the artist and the dancer. This is a time where in that shadow energy, people can become overly focused on the material realm. They can be possessive, they can be stubborn, they can be entitled, they can be lazy and over indulgent. So as this is a full moon, there can be quite an illumination to where that shadow energy might be living within you. You definitely want to check your chart to see where that degree of roughly 16 degrees Taurus and 16 degrees Scorpio lives, because those are the houses that are getting massively activated with this eclipse. As the eclipse is conjunct Uranus and Taurus, we must note that Uranus is a higher octave of Mercury. So there's something that wishes to be expressed that wishes to be communicated almost like it's being broadcast from the future into this Now moment of the eclipse, a time to really connect in with the eccentric, the avant garde, to awaken our electrical impulses. And, of course to be very grounded and very aware, self awar,e because Uranus energy is very sudden and shocking and can be filled with surprises. Therefore we want to be as consciously grounded as possible. As we go through this dragon's head of the eclipse portal. The full moon energy is already peaking and we'll be peeking throughout the course of this weekend as we build to the full moon on Tuesday, the eighth of November and will still feel that frequency as we move through Thursday the 10th of November. Therefore as you're operating heavy machinery and you're doing all the kind of like human day to day things, it is advised to just take some time to be a little more centered and grounded and conscious and what you are doing as the North Node is meeting up with Uranus in Taurus with this Full Moon.

:

I kind of on one level see this as the peak of the Uranus and Taurus journey. Uranus will be in Taurus until 2026 when it shifts into the sign of Gemini. And we can absolutely prepare ourselves psychically, emotionally, spiritually that within 2026, our connection to technology and the pace of life is going to be radically, radically different from what we know of it today in 2022. With this full moon, there is a part of ourselves that really wants to have a sense of freedom to express our uniqueness, to also be working in harmony and cooperation with others. And so resistance to this consciousness can come through rebelliousness, flakiness, lawlessness, chaos, antisocial behavior, revolution, anarchy, electrical overcharges in the body and acute nervousness. So in order to prevent those shadow energies, I really encourage you to work in extra meditation, drink extra water, take salt baths, lay on the earth, go on hikes, walk barefoot, whatever you can do to be closer to nature, around the full moon will support you in this journey. The moon and Uranus and the North Node are all being ruled by Venus in this full moon. And that's super important astrology. We know Venus is in Scorpio. She is conjunct the Sun and Mercury and the South Node in Scorpio. And we had a strong Venus flavor in the Scorpio Eclipse at the end of October. So there's this Venetia and thread that has been woven through the sound Eclipse portal. And Venus is making so many different aspects. On this eclipse she is as I mentioned, she is in Venus conjunct the Sun mercury in the south node. She is by quintile Mars and Gemini and Chiron in Aries. Mars in Gemini is retrograde and on this really important journey that we spoke about last episode 63, Venus is squaring Saturn in Aquarius. Saturn is coming to the tail end of its Aquarian journey which will shift into Pisces in March of 2023. Venus is trining Neptune. We're coming closer once more to that Jupiter Neptune conjunction in Pisces. Venus is trining Pallas Athene in cancer. She is parallel the sun mercury and Saturn and contra parallel Uranus in Taurus. So this is super, super important. And I encourage you in this eclipse portal to really sink deeply into your values. One of the things that we know is that if it's not a hell yes, it's a hell no, a resounding no. So allow your heart and your gut and your womb space -All beings have a womb space regardless of gender. For men, it is the hara - allow those spaces, that grail wisdom to guide you.

And also I just want to say for the locals here in Asheville and for people who want to join in virtually we are circling up for the Taurus lunar eclipse Council. It will be from three to 7am on November 8, Tuesday. That's Eastern Standard Time. It is not recorded. I don't record these events because they are meant to be experienced in the moment. All of you is welcome in this space and we will be circling for the duration of the eclipse. And it is important that you know that massive karmic lifting is available for each one of us in an eclipse, we really have the potential to kind of peel away old ancestral stories, especially as we come together in community because our frequencies just automatically multiply, which allows us to experience a greater vastness of our healing potential.

Also, I just want to remind you that if you're interested in booking a one on one divination session to reflect back on the medicine of this eclipse portal for you and your life, to know how to really strategize the Mars Retrograde and how to close out 2022, this year of the lovers, this year of Hieros Gamos in a conscious, compassionate way. Circle up with me. Again, the link in the show notes will help you get to that space. Thank you so much for tuning in here with Stars, Stones and Stories.
