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 93, The voice of nature. In this week ahead the astrology that we are experiencing is a continuation of this integration of our eclipses, the first eclipses of 2023. This Grand Cross, this great square that we have been immersed within between Jupiter and the North Node in Taurus and the South Node in Scorpio opposing that frequency and then those nodes in Jupiter being squared by Pluto in Aquarius and Mars in Leo. This early stage of Leo as we're integrating this experience, we are waxing towards the First Quarter Moon in Virgo which is aligned this Saturday, the Saturn Day the 27th of May at 11:22am Eastern Daylight Time. This is a First Quarter Moon in Virgo six degrees six arc minutes Virgo.

Ra Ma:

The first quarter moon brings us to a state of awareness very much like this Grand Cross the state where we notice the tension in our bodies, the tension in our lives. As we are building towards our visions. It is quite natural, it is quite normal to come to these points, these moments in time and space where we can feel very tight we can feel as if we're being stretched. We can question, we can doubt, we can wonder, Am I going to persevere? Will this vision come to fruition? Will this vision come to life? Will my dream enter into my waking reality? It is a gift I believe if we can truly find these moments of tension as moments of beauty and moments of the natural progression of life. We are not here on Earth for every single moment and every single action and every single relationship to be just so simple, so soft and so sweet and sensual, as lovely as that sounds, it is our ability to work with grit, to roll up our sleeves, and really dive into challenges that strengthens our character that gives us this edge of perseverance. And it allows us so that when we do achieve a specific dream or a realization, there is a moment of glory, there's a moment of joy of celebration that really one can only sink into when they have gone through great challenge of some kind. And I want to be clear, I'm not saying that we must always have challenge in order to have joy and celebration, there are moments there are times in our lives where we are meant to attract with ease, and so much simplicity and like this great, great sweetness, and that is beautiful, too. However, every single moment in our life was like that. Naturally, as we kind of edge towards finding ourselves looping automatically in certain behavioral patterns. In many ways we would become addicted to that ease, and then we would become lazy. And so this life is such a delicate balance between expansion and contraction and expansion and contraction. And it is the stage of the first quarter moon that really brings in that moment of contraction. Where you begin to question, you begin to get really specific about your vision. You see what might work and what may not work and you're willing to edit. So we're at a place now where you are invited to edit. Edit your dreams, your intentions, your seeds of possibility that you cast with that Taurus New Moon last Venus day last Friday. And perhaps this is something that goes the distance beyond this lunar cycle, perhaps your seeding dreams that will take you a year from now, five years from now 10 years from now 22 years from now. An entire Pluto cycle as Pluto in 2044 will have shifted from Aquarius into Pisces.

Ra Ma:

And this waxing moon will bring us all the way to the peak, which will be the following Saturday, the third of June when we have this extremely potent full moon, a Sagittarius strawberry Full Moon conjunct the Great Attractor. And we will be exploring this in Episode 94 of stars, stones and stories and in much more depth in Ma Magick, the inner counsel that I steward and you're always welcome to come step into that portal with us and join us if you're looking for more in depth guidance and support around the lunar cycle and what you're manifesting what you're creating in your life. This Full Moon conjunct to the Great Attractor will hearken back to December of 2021 and other points in time and space. And I think one of the most prominent astrologers who have talked about some of these more subtle points is Philip Sedgwick, and I've discussed him in previous episodes more so of the much older episodes when I go into depth, which is essentially what we do in Ma Magick now. However, I do want to speak a little bit to some of these greater points that are being activated right now. And that are really... we're going to feel in such a strong way as we come into the month of June with this Full Moon conjunct to the Great Attractor.

Ra Ma:

Philip Sedgwick wrote how the Great Attractor is essentially a mystery for astrologers. And it does. It has different activities where it can warp time and space, while also bending light because of its massive gravity. However, it is not a black hole, and the Great Attractor and those who possess the Great Attractor in a strong area of their chart are here to really bring in points of objectivity or points of discussion. They are people who seek to enlighten others to the fact that there is always another way, there's always is another possibility. And so, because of this people who have a strong Great Attractor contact particularly with like Sun, Moon, Rising, they are people that sometimes might polarize others in the world, it is because they are bringing in issues, they are utilizing this ability to essentially see into the future. And Sedgwick pointed out how the astrologer Robert Hand, who has been a very important astrologer and modern day astrological history, whose sun is conjunct the Great Attractor, and Hand took quite a lot of energy to translate classical astrological texts. Of course, there are other astrologers who have done this and who are currently doing this, but Hand was one of the more prominent people in early modern astrology to really do this, he has definitely made an important mark on our astrological history. So that gives you a bit of a reference point to consider this Great Attractor, when I sink into the power of the Great Attractor.

Ra Ma:

For me, I have this experience of connecting in with this great Cosmic Womb of many multiverses. And so it's a very infinite space of creativity, and creation and possibility. So when there's a lunar alignment, like a full moon coming in, especially this particular Full Moon in June, which will thread back to December of 2021, and other points in time and space, there is a story that is coming to light that is connected to some sort of infinite potential. This past week, I have been experiencing so many more profound cosmic alignments, and synchronicities and connections with the voice and the voices of nature. And I know you have been too because I've been having conversations with quite a number of people who have really been noticing these subtle signs and symbols of the multiverse and how we are being communicated to and through one another. Beyond the Great Attractor is the Shapley attractor and Sedgwick has also written about this and the shapley attractor, our South Node in Scorpio is coming to align with this and I believe that that is part of the reason why we're having so many more symbolic moments in time and space where we are right here and now. So I really invite you to allow your senses to open even deeper. Allow yourself to slow down more in your day to day so that you can generate a clearer awareness and a receptivity to the communication that is happening all around you for you through you at any given moment. The shapley Super Cluster, the shapley attractor is a force a point around two degrees 36 arc minutes Scorpio that has this connection to the galactic center or the super galactic center the Great Attractor, this shapely attractor goes beyond the beyond. And of course, as we can imagine, this is infinite potential. This shapley attractor is one that, in many ways allows you to tap into the myriad of possibilities.

Ra Ma:

Sedgwick gave the example of Bill Gates having his sun on the shapley attractor. Every single one of us. In our modern times, if you're listening to this podcast, you're using some form of a computer, whether it's a tablet, or a smartphone or an actual laptop or desktop, you're using a computing device, most likely it has somehow been designed by Bill Gates, it is somehow connected to this person who has this really kind of fascinating iconography associated to them. Before it was just computing and now there's so much more we can attach to the name of Bill Gates post 2020. We're not going to go into that in this time and space. But I do want to say that his name is quite ubiquitous. We know it. And we've heard of it and his visions and his dreams have impacted all of us on the planet in our current time and space. And that symbolizes this frequency of the shapley attractor, something that can reach out so far and wide Beyond The Beyond, and then distill it into human consciousness here and now on Earth. So we know that there are these distant guiding magnetic forces that are absolutely affecting our lives here.

Ra Ma:

And now on earth, there is no separation between any attractor, any Galactic Center, and who you are right in this Now moment. On one level as you are this hologram for the collective, as I close in every episode of Stars, stones and stories, you are a hologram for the collective. And within you lives, this shapley attractor, and the Great Attractor, and the super Galactic Center, and the galactic center, and all of the Milky Way, and all of planet Earth and all of humanity. We're all mirrored within one another through the very cells of who we are.

Ra Ma:

This past week, the voices, the voice of nature, the world of nature has been speaking so strong to me, and I felt called to share a little bit about the symbolism that has been coming through because perhaps you to have been having experiences. It began for me on Tuesday, in the sense that I was hanging out with a dear friend and sister and fellow priestess. And this Hawk came and sat before us for what felt like an hour. And it would make interesting gestures and look at us and like pierce into our eyes, it was very profound. And this frequency of Hawk is about visionary power and guardianship. And Hawk connects to the equinoxes and also the new moon. I am sharing some of the medicine of these various winged ones and the snake. And this symbolism comes from Ted Andrews' book "animal speak", which has been like a Bible for me since I was a teenager. It's a lovely book that if you are very interested in communing more with the natural world and deciphering these voices of nature, I encourage you to find a copy of animal speak. The hawk. It was yesterday, my daughter and I were driving and we were in a very important discussion. And all of a sudden, a hawk literally flew right over our car very low. And then this morning, as I was driving her to school, another hawk flew right by us. So three times is absolutely a sign and a symbol of something that goes beyond just me, something I feel very called to share with you. And these hawks are messengers, protectors. They are visionaries of the air and know that you right now are visioning your life in every breathing moment. It is said that hawks and owls have the keenest eyes of all of the Raptors. Hawks are here to impress and stir your imagination. They have very keen eyesight, their hunting ability is impeccable. They are powerful fliers, they're able to use their wings. Sometimes they can be harassed and attacked by smaller birds. And so this is important to note with the hawk medicine because at times you might find that you are attacked by people who do not understand you or who do not recognize the wisdom of your creative energy, and they may attempt to attack your ability to soar. If you experience that. It is not a moment to collapse. It's a moment to spread your wings and fly and stay even more committed to your vision. Hawks inspire you to rise to a higher level of Consciousness The sky is the realm of the hawk. And through its flight, it communicates with humans. And with the great creator spirit, it awakens your vision and inspires you to live a life filled with creative purpose. My yard just is teeming with so much bird life that I felt really called to share with you some of the symbolism of the different birds that are living in my little backyard here in Asheville, North Carolina.

Ra Ma:

So I've seen the Bluebird, the Western Bluebird, and I saw it this Tuesday for the first time ever. It is so beautiful the color blue is this bright blue, it reminds me of the Nubian blue you see in the Nubian village in Azwan, Egypt and the blue bird is a very firm spirit that spreads joy everywhere it goes, it reminds you that good news is coming, and that you are prepared for whatever lies ahead. The bluebird has unassuming confidence and is a frequency of happiness reminding you to enjoy yourself. My Backyard also is a home to black birds and black birds are here to bring in the wisdom and the energies of Mother Nature. And they can bring in omens and mysticism. And I have a family of woodpeckers and the woodpecker demonstrates the power of rhythm and the ability to discern. Cardinal brings in renewed vitality through recognizing self importance. The blue jay reminds one of proper use of power. The robin allows you to spread new growth. The sparrow awakens your common nobility, the crow brings in the secret magic of creation, to remind you, that creator is calling you. The hummingbird is a sign of tireless joy and the nectar of life. The pigeon, reminding you to return to love and the security of home and the Raven, a symbol of magic, the ability to shape shift and create with all of creation. Yes, there are many varieties of birds that I am blessed to have in my home area. And also this week, my daughter and I were given the great honor to adopt a beautiful, beautiful snake that has come into our lives. We've known him since 2021, and have caretaked him. And now he is a part of our home. And I'm really sinking into how this is a year of nature as given through the Dagara cosmology which I am indebted to elder Malidoma. So me and all of his beautiful teachings really, every day just honoring his life and giving gratitude for Malidoma and all of his wisdom.

Ra Ma:

And I feel like this time of year it's so important to acknowledge Him because that full moon we're building up to. It was the eclipse that conjunct the Great Attractor that called him into the other world back in 2021. And every time I journey to Egypt to Kemet, I always honor Malidoma. I always bring him with me in so many capacities and ways and continue to share the teachings I received from him and through him with the people who I am blessed to pilgrim with as we're preparing for Dream seed incubation with the Blue Lotus, where we're going to be there this June into summer solstice. I'm really feeling the wisdom of this year of nature and the medicine of Dagara land, this primordial essence of the bird and the snake.

Ra Ma:

If you are a longtime follower of Stars, stones and stories or you've known me for many years, then you know my deep love and reverence for the goddess and we can find the goddess goes all the way back to the ancient ancient ancient times and her most primordial forms are in the form of the bird goddess and the snake goddess. And as we look to Egypt, we find that in the unification of Upper Egypt and Lower Egypt through the Wadjets, and the Nekhbets, through the snake and the vulture. And so the snake is the symbol of rebirth, resurrection, initiation and wisdom. The snake and the bird, they go hand in hand, they symbolize so much of the same yet they are different.

Ra Ma:

The frequency of the dragon that unites the snake and the bird because the dragon and the bird can fly and the snake and the dragon, carry that serpent wisdom. Sometimes we overthink things as humans, and we forget how to simplify and really sink into the symbolism of the world. Malidoma spoke so wisely. He said, "doubt is a poison of modernity." I feel it is so important that we continue to remember this wisdom, doubt is a poison of modernity. And the ancient indigenous ones did not live in doubt in the way that we do. We are programmed from the moment of conception, even before then, we are programmed to doubt it has happened for many generations now. Through the over culture, us, those of us who are here now... this generation is here to awaken, to remember through the very cells of our being, how powerful and strong we are. So I wish to remind you of a teaching that I received through elder Malidoma and it is about the Suria which sits within your body that is an egg shaped light and gives you this capacity to really meditate and merge with your full and true essence. The suria is very much like what we imagine our higher self and I think many people imagine the higher self is like outside of the body very far away, kind of floating in the ethers. However your power is to bring your Suria, your higher self into your physical body. Malidoma taught how the Suria is so massive. Your Suria is so massive it doesn't even fit on Planet Earth. You are timeless, You are boundless, you are limitless. As we consider the earth and the Earth's Akasha and the Earth's body we can consider the main seven chakras of Mother Earth and Egypt is the throat chakra of the earth. Your throat chakra is your command center. And in many ways we could say Egypt Kemet is the command center of the earth the space of authentic invocation. And the place where you have an opportunity to speak through invocation. There's an invitation to speak your truth, to speak your regality, your nobility. To be here... be who you came to be. We are here to heal. We are here to be our true essence. And each one of us we are awakening our truth within the portals of the heart.

Ra Ma:

In Episode 92, you were offered the five gifts of Hathor, Het, Heru, the goddess of womanhood, the goddess of beauty and joy and dance and song and rhythm, the goddess of the voice, Heru, Horus, Het Haru, the house of Horus.Heru, eternal freedom, Het Haru, the house of eternal freedom. And so in honor of the hawk and honor of the Hawks cousin, the Falcon, we welcome in the frequency of Horus and I ask you, where have you imprisoned yourself? And where are you being called to liberate yourself?

Ra Ma:

And I wish to share with you this poem written by Alana Fairchild. In dedication to Horus. "Horus, Falcon of the Golden Sun, my creative energies have begun, to shine bright and strong, helped my creative projects along to fulfillment and completion pure With your will and light so sure, Horus, Falcon of the Golden Sun, my success and winnings now come."

Ra Ma:

And so I invite you to really sink even deeper into those Taurus New Moon intentions and visions as we wax towards this first quarter moon perhaps chant that invocation over your intentions and your visions call in that frequency of eternal freedom for you are free. We are free. We are here to celebrate. We are here to co create. We are here to experience the beauty and the joy and the polarity. The duality of this world, of this earth.

Ra Ma:
