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 76 of stars, stones and stories. It is such an honor to circle up with you in this way. And I am truly grateful that we're able to come together like this. It's pretty exciting. As someone who was you know, a child before we had cell phones and internet and yeah, just some days, I think it can be easy to feel a little burdened by technology. But it's also important to find the fun and the play and the creativity and the technology. And I'm just really leaning into that more and more. I think that it's pretty exciting how we can communicate and touch one another's lives.

Ra Ma:

And this year of 2023, it is a very magical year. It is a year victory in many ways. And I go in depth to explore these topics in the 2023 masterclass which it's a two hour recorded ceremonial teaching. So if you haven't already received that and you're wanting to learn more about how to work with the frequencies of this year, I do invite you to circle up with us and the link within the show notes will take you right there. And there's a number of ways that the overarching energies are really speaking to the magic that we can experience in this year. And one of those ways comes through the Dagara cosmology which has been passed down from elder Malidoma Some to those of us who have had the great honor of circling with him and studying from him and just being in his truly divinely guided presence. He was such an incredible teacher and healer and shaman and elder and the list could just go on and on of all the ways he spread his magic and his beauty in the world and he carried such a unique, very high, high, high level of intelligence. And the way he could weave words together was incredibly poetic, just sitting in his presence, how he communicated was pure art. And so this understanding of the Dagara medicine wheel comes through elder Malidoma Some. And I also want to just honor the fact that I recently appeared in my dear friend and soul sisters podcast, Erica, and her podcast, and we discussed our connection to elder Malidoma and so many other beautiful topics. So that is also linked within the show notes. And I encourage you to check out the podcast if you haven't already taken a listen, the episode is within her Podcast, episode 44. And it is entitled "The great transformation toward an ancient future with Rama" and she's just such a beautiful woman and so devoted to her work. So I hope you'll circle up with us within her podcast and learn more about the ways our lives have been touched through elder Malidoma.

Ra Ma:

So this year of nature is really heralding a lot of change. And we can expect many people to go through radical change in this year. And I know, we're all like, whoa, we've been going through radical change, like what do you mean? Yeah, there's more to come. But it's part of what we signed up for to be on Earth in these times. And I know it can be a lot for our nervous systems. And so if you're feeling taxed, the best way forward is to really craft more time for rest, more time for pure live spring water, more time for Healthy nourishing food, more time for sleep, more time to recharge on the earth, rest on the earth, walk barefoot on the earth. And especially in this year of nature, we're being asked to go to the natural world. When we go through radical change. If you're feeling overwhelmed, and you don't know how to process that is a key sign that you need to get out in nature, and allow the nature to help you to integrate and recalibrate. Many people on the planet are going through some kind of spiritual awakening in these times and they're seeking magic, they're seeking a way to work with the unseen realms. And the truth of the matter is, is that all of the magic we're seeking is found within nature is really this portal for you to connect with your super natural essence. Trees themselves are portals to other dimensions and places and spaces. And if you make really good friends with the nature beings, where you live and where you reside, they will make themselves more and more aware to you. And one of the best ways to make good friends with them is to give offerings and to do it in a way of pure heart and pure intention because that is the beauty of the natural world as it breeds pure heart and pure intention more than anything with great clarity and ease and grace. So it might seem obvious but sometimes as humans we need a reminder of the obvious especially as we're becoming a little more distracted and overrun with constant communion with technology.

Ra Ma:

We've just gone through a pretty significant week as the sun ingressed into Aquarius, we welcomed the Aquarius New Moon and Lunar Imbolc and the year of the rabbit and Uranus stationed direct and Venus is now in Pisces and all planets are direct like we're in a pretty luscious time. And here in the Northern Hemisphere, we are enjoying the season of Imbolc that is very much connected to that stirring of the earth. Meanwhile, in the Southern Hemisphere, there's this deep connection to Lamass and really being out on the land and Pilgriming out on the land. And so wherever you are on planet earth at this time when you're listening because ultimately, I believe all of these transmissions are timeless. Even though I do speak to the current astrology in each episode, there are always threads that are being woven through that are going to serve you no matter when you pop in, and you're drawn into an episode.

Ra Ma:

And so I really invite you, especially as we've just had Uranus shift direct and we're really feeling this influx of maverick manifestation coming out of that Aquarius New Moon, I invite you to continually commune with Mother Earth and make good friends with the earth. And as we get to the Saturday the 28th of January, we're welcoming in the first quarter moon and it's at eight degrees 26 arc minutes Taurus at 10:20am. Eastern Standard Time. First quarter moons are times of challenge and change and where we can be really aware of where the obstacles are beginning to emerge in regards to whatever intentions we cast. And I think some people believe that with when you're working with new moon intentions, all you need to do is write them down and let it go and trust. However, what the first quarter moon comes in, to give you an opportunity and experience of is to take direct action so that you may bring your seeds into a state of germination. One of the greatest teachings I learned from elder Malidoma is that obstacles or perceived forces of adversity are showing up in our lives really just to encourage us to keep going. Obstacles appear so that we know we're on course, and one of the things he would share quite often is just how we as humans, we really like a challenge, we come here and we want to strive, we don't actually want it to be super easy. It's just when we're in the midst of it in our human experience. And you know, our memory has been wiped in so many different capacities, we tend to kind of forget that we signed up for all of these wild, wild times, and the significant challenges and changes. And so you have this opportunity to perceive crisis situations from new found eyes. And to use any challenge as an opportunity to manage your energy of manifestation really, this comes down to softening and surrendering and trusting the process. So I invite you in this week to allow the frequency of the moon to build your dreams aground so that you may root into your pleasure, you may experience and express your sensual creativity. And you may allow the beauty of nature to inspire the sacred life of mutual reciprocity.

Ra Ma:

And with that, we are going to draw this episode to a close, I'm so grateful to be able to circle up with you, and encourage you to join us in Skywalkers. We are beginning next Wednesday, the first of February. And it's going to be an amazing, amazing journey. I've created this course, this five week course, as an opportunity for you to get really solid in the foundations of astrology. So we're gonna go through five modules beginning with the history of Western astrology, studying the elements and modalities, learning about the planets and their archetypes, the zodiacal signs and the houses, I purposely have left out teaching about aspects and that will come in intermediate offerings. And I'm doing this because I have been studying astrology for almost 30 years now. And I believe that teaching aspects in a foundations beginner course is actually too much information. You really want to fully engage and understand and know, inside and out the elements, the modalities, the planets, the Zodiac and the houses. And once you have those down, like you're golden, you're good, you're ready to receive more information. Astrology is a vast, vast language. And I feel like I've only begun to scratch the surface based off of my own knowledge and experience and I've literally been doing readings professionally since 2017, I've definitely sat with over 1000 people one on one from all different walks of life. And I've offered sessions ranging professionally from 10 minutes to two hours and beyond. So I've had a lot of experience connecting with people in different capacities. And I think when it comes to astrology, we want to understand the basic archetypes first and foremost. And what I find some astrologers do is they get almost too sophisticated and high minded when they're speaking with people who don't understand the basics, and it really doesn't serve anyone. So within Skywalkers, you're going to get the basics down and our journey together beyond the five modules, you also get to experience two live synthesis sessions, so it is a total of 14 hours of live teaching that is also recorded. So you can go back and review it, there are embodiment practices that you will be offered, you will have a beautiful forum to interact with, and a community to learn alongside with, and you get the ability to take the course each time that it's offered. So you may fully digest and integrate these basics. In addition, there are a number of bonuses that I offer you, and I have a pay in full option and a two pay option. If you are considering joining us, I say go for it. And my daughter, she's just turned 12. She's going to be circling up with us in this round of Skywalkers. And I've always envisioned this course being for people of all ages. So if you have a child who's like, I would say at least nine who wants to learn about astrology and you want to take it together. Like why not, you know, you don't have to both invest, you and your child can come as one investment. I think that would be amazing. So I would love to invite you to join us. And you may also book a one on one divination session with me, which is in the show notes. And I'm booking now for divination sessions in late February and March. And I will be raising my rates once Saturn shifts into Pisces. So I invite you to book now if you would like to secure your spot. And also I have three amazing pilgrimage opportunities and would love for you to circle up with us if you're called to experience radical transformation and connect to the Earth's ley lines and do some powerful work in community. So you can always email support@earthseed temple arts.com. If you want to join us, and you want to receive more information.

Ra Ma:

May there be peace to the east. May there be peace to the south. May there be peace to the west. And May there be peace to the north. And may that piece thread deep into the heart of Mother Earth and spiral out into the cosmos threaded back into your heart. May you receive that piece as a beautiful balm for your heart to support you through all of the transformation and the victory that is to come in this year of 2023. And so it is. And so it is. And so it is. Blessed be.
