FINAL Activation of The Path of the Help-Mate

Hello, Embodiments of LOVE!

The gateway for continuing to receive the POWERFUL INFLUX of energies from this final activation (SOLar Eclipse) of the Virgo/Pisces relationship axis ~ The Path of the Helpmate ~ remains open through tomorrow.  The effects of this activation will continue to reveal themselves to you over the next six months.

The Path of the Help-Mate is about finding someone who is as equally dedicated to their sacred work as you are to yours and/or supports you in your sacred work.  These relationships are all about the sacred work.  Boyfriend/girlfriend and husband/wife relationships are often the kind of relationships where the focus is on the partner rather than the work. This focus on the partner can be a disservice to the sacred work.  In these kinds of relationships, the sacred work can be put on the back burner or given up entirely. Certainly, there are exceptions to this.  Disciple/Guru relationships are a very good example of The Path of the Helpmate.  Both you, as the Disciple, and your Guru are focused on and dedicated to your sacred work, often being Self-Actualization/Enlightenment.  Other kinds of relationships that can work well on The Path of the Helpmate are those we form in women circles.  The women in your circle are as dedicated to the Circle's sacred work as you are.  The key to this path is that both partners do not have to be doing the SAME sacred work. However, they both must have the same commitment and devotion to their sacred work.

The sacred work is the work you were born to do.  The work is a manifestation of your purpose, You love to do this work; it brings you joy and is fueled by your passion.  The sacred work is more important than anything else in your life: fame, position, money and security. It takes precedence over your other relationships, sometimes even over the Helpmate relationship itself.  For instance, my sister, our friend and I co-founded a non-profit school for children with Autism, The Chase Academy. While I enjoyed the creative aspect of starting up the school and worked for the school from time-to-time, it is not my sacred work.  It is my sister's sacred work.  She eat, drinks and sleeps this work. There is no conversation you can have with her that does not end up coming back to this work.  Our friend is my sister's Helpmate. She is committed to and supports the work.  Most importantly, she is a steadfast supporter of my sister in the work.  All the same, our friend does not eat, drink and sleep the work.

As I continue to discuss the activation of The Path of the Helpmate, it is essential for you to know what your sacred work is and who your helpmate(s) are, so that you can view them through the lens of what I am sharing.  By doing this, my intention is for you to gain some wisdom and clarity around how this Path's activations over the past two years have expanded you and shown up in your life.

Because the February 26, 2017 SOLar Eclipse at 8°12' of Pisces is the FINAL activation of the Virgo/Pisces axis, I feel it is important to look closely at the cycle we are completing.  This cycle began back in 2015.  Allow yourself to really drop-in deeply to remember what you were experiencing at each of these eclipses.  If you are familiar with your natal astrological chart, look at it to discover if any of these eclipses conjoined planets in your chart, activating their shamanic medicine for you as well.  Each eclipse was an activation of The Path of The Helpmate AND a personal Initiation for you! Each succeeding Initiation further expanded your Consciousness. With this FINAL activation and Initiation, you are receiving the Wisdom and Gifts of this transformation in Consciousness.

Here are the key points in the cycle (from The AstroTwins: Ophira and Tali Edut):
  • 3/20/15   ~   SOLar Eclipse   ~   29°PI27'
  • 9/13/15   ~   SOLar Eclipse   ~   20°VI10'
  • 3/09/16   ~   SOLar Eclipse   ~   18°PI56'
  • 9/01/16   ~   SOLar Eclipse   ~   09°VI21'
  • 9/16/16   ~   Lunar Eclipse    ~   24°PI20'
  • 2/26/17   ~   SOLar Eclipse   ~   08°PI12'

Last year, I wrote a blog post about the SOLar Eclipse activation of Pisces that was occurring at that time.  I encourage you to (re)read it to help you on your journey of discovery through this Virgo/Pisces cycle.  The most interesting point for me is that last year's SOLar Eclipse in Pisces coincided with MahaShivratri as does this FINAL activation.
The fourteenth day of every lunar month, or the day before the new moon, is known as Shivratri. Among all the twelve Shivratris that occur in a calendar year, Mahashivratri, the one that occurs in February-March is of the most spiritual significance. On this night, the northern hemisphere of the planet is positioned in such a way that there is a natural upsurge of energy in a human being. This is a day when nature is pushing one towards one’s spiritual peak. ~ Isha
A SOLar Eclipse always occurs on a New Moon.  The New Moon occurs when the Moon passes in front of the Sun and blocks out most of the Sun's light.  The effect of this is like a Cosmic "power outage."  The darkness of the power outage casts a shadow on our lives. A SOLar Eclipse is a good opportunity for us to:
  • tie-off any loose ends that we may have in our lives, thereby completing any unfinished business,
  • look within ourselves to become more aligned with our Authentic Self, and most especially,
  • be conscious of what we are inspired/desire to create, so that we can choose the seeds we will plant.

So, let's look a little closer at what this FINAL activation of The Path of the Helpmate means for Humanity.  This SOLar Eclipse is once again in Pisces, ruler of the 12th House, both ruled by the planet Neptune.  Pisces represents the Ocean of Consciousness ~ all that is Unmanifest ~ Source ~ the abode of God and Goddess. The 12th house represents the Collective Unconscious and our personal unconscious. The planet Neptune is our Cosmic Pipeline to Source, and in the 12th house, a pipeline into our unconscious.  While Lunar Eclipses, which occur at the Full Moon, are associated with Illuminating our Shadow Self, I feel SOLar Eclipses are an even more powerful opportunity for this deep-dive into our unconscious to discover our false beliefs. Indeed, our current SOLar Eclipse in Pisces, which is conjunct transiting Neptune, is a uniquely auspicious opportunity for this transformational work, a "sacred work" which re-empowers us (Pluto in Virgo opposite the Eclipse). At this time of the SOLar Eclipse, which is also conjunct the South Node (karma), we can weed out our negative samskaras, so that, with the Grace of MahaShivaratri, we can become liberated from samsara (the cycle of death and rebirth).
According to yogic philosophy, we’re born with a karmic inheritance of mental and emotional patterns ~ known as samskaras ~ through which we cycle over and over again during our lives. ... In addition to being generalized patterns, samskaras are individual impressions, ideas, or actions; taken together, our samskaras make up our conditioning. Repeating samskaras reinforces them, creating a groove that is difficult to resist. Samskaras can be positive ~ imagine the selfless acts of Mother Theresa. They can also be negative, as in the self-lacerating mental patterns that underlie low self-esteem and self-destructive relationships. The negative samskaras are what hinder our positive evolution. ~ Yoga Journal
For me personally, right now, my progressed Sun (Divine Father ~ Shiva) is in Pisces and my progressed Moon (Divine Mother ~Shakti) is in Virgo.  YES, They are currently on the Virgo/Pisces axis.  Together, They are my Sacred Helpmates. They have helped me to clarify my sacred work. With my North Node at 29° Cancer in my 1st House of the Self, my sacred work is healing and nurturing my Inner Child.  Every one of you become my Helpmate in this endeavor.  That is because my Mercury is in Aquarius in the 7th House of Partnerships.  By communicating with you, and learning about you through your Shamanic astrological charts, I learn about myself.  By working with you to uncover the shadow aspects your father-daughter relationship is mirroring to you, so that you can identify your patriarchal wound(s) and the false belief(s) you internalized because of it/them, you are learning about and healing your Inner Child.  In turn, this helps me to learn more about my Inner Child, so that I can better nurture her.

This SOLar Eclipse is also conjunct my natal Chiron (Pisces) and opposite my natal Pluto (Virgo).  I have been diving deep into my unconscious, uncovering my shadow aspects and discovering my patriarchal wounds and false beliefs. With the Shamanic medicine of my natal Chiron being infused with a new level of potency, this has been a significantly healing time for my Inner Child.  More than that, my natal Pluto has been dynamically energized, so this healing for my Inner Child has been a phenomenal experience of renewal for me.  My Inner Child has been reborn as a Child of the Goddess (Virgo).  More so, the entire process has fully-awakened (MahaShivratri) my Inner High Priestess (Virgo), the Wisdom and Gift I have received from this transformation in Consciousness.

If you are excited about the Initiation you have received and would like a deeper understanding and more clarity, I invite you to schedule a Shamanic AstroSOL reading with me.  When you use the code, SHIVA, I will give you a 20% discount.  This offer is valid through March 12, 2007 ~ Full Moon in Virgo.

Today is all about the Cosmic LOVERS, and how They are showing up within YOU!  With Mars (Inner God/Masculine) and Venus (Inner Goddess/Feminine) both being in the sign of Aries today, this Valentine's Day is truly about your Inner Relationship. Ultimately, since Aries is the ruler of the First House, the focus for the Cosmic LOVERS on this Valentine's Day is your capacity for Self~LOVE,  Self~LOVE is THE greatest gift we can give to Humanity because when we LOVE ourselves, we are transmitting a kind of permission to the Collective Consciousness for others to love themselves too.

Our ability to LOVE ourselves is often influenced by the inner wounds we carry.  For both men and women, the past 6,000 years of the Patriarchal Warrior defending all that he has claimed for himself as he has plundered and pillaged through families and communities across the planet has left DEEP Patriarchal Wounds within the Feminine.  We each carry the Inner Masculine and Inner Feminine principles within us, so all people ~ men and women ~ are uncovering, healing and transforming the Patriarchal Wounds.  

Mars and Venus in Aries is the perfect occasion to restore the balance between our Inner Masculine and Inner Feminine.  Aries/Libra is the Path of Conscious Equal Partnership.  We must be conscious of ourself (Aries) before we can become conscious of our partner (Libra).  Mars is the Ruler of Aries, and Venus is the Ruler of Libra.  The Cosmic LOVERS are GIFTING us with a beautiful opportunity to consciously bring our Inner Masculine and our Inner Feminine into balance ~ into Equal Partnership.  The Inner Masculine has chosen to step up and take Its place as a Sacred Warrior.  It has turned Its back on the Patriarchal Warrior.  Being the Sacred Warrior, defending the Cosmic Order, is the Noble Cause It now fights for.  The Inner Masculine will protect the Inner Feminine as Their partnership is reestablished in Equality through collaboration and cooperation. Together, They will level the playing field of Hierarchy. The Inner Masculine will safeguard and preserve the non-hierarchical Realm of Relationship in which the Cosmic LOVERS will initiate mutual honor, empower equal value, promote peace and rediscover personal truth.

With Jupiter (Cosmic Guru) in Libra, Humanity has stepped into The Golden Age of Relationship. Jupiter is beaming across the sky at the Cosmic LOVERS to support them in conscious-equal-partnership and to expand the conscious ways of engaging relationship. Jupiter is now in retrograde, providing the Inner Masculine and Inner Feminine the time and space required to reveal to Them just where within your Inner Relationship the weeds of Patriarchy continue to undermine your capacity for Self-LOVE. Your window for Self-Discovery will remain open until approximately March 10th when Mars will move from Aries into Taurus.  Look to February 23rd to March 4th for some revolutionary insights and inspiration for committing to your REAL Self, living an authentic life, reclaiming your Sovereignty and stepping into Radical Self-LOVE.

If you desire insight into the Patriarchal Wounds that are impeding the expansion of your Self-LOVE, I invite you to schedule a Shamanic AstroSOL™ reading with me. 

Many blessings to you upon your journey!

The Pentagram of the Lunar Eclipse

On tonight's Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse in Leo, there is a pentagram (5 pointed star) being activated in the heavens above us. The Pentagram is an ancient symbol for the Goddess. In fact, the planet Venus who represents the Goddess, completes a path in the sky in the form of a pentagram every 8 years.

If you watched the movie, The DaVinci Code, you will recall that within the first few scenes of the movie, the character Robert Langdon explains to Fache that the pentagram is an ancient symbol for the Sacred Feminine:
"The pentacle," Langdon clarified, "is a pre-Christian symbol that relates to Nature worship. The ancients envisioned their world in two halves - masculine and feminine. Their gods and goddesses worked to keep a balance of power. Yin and yang. When male and female were balanced, there was harmony in the world. When they were unbalanced, there was chaos". 
Langdon motioned to Saunière's stomach. "This pentacle is representative of the female half of all things— a concept religious historians call the 'sacred feminine' or the 'divine goddess.' Saunière, of all people, would know this."
"Saunière drew a goddess symbol on his stomach?"  
Langdon had to admit, it seemed odd. "In its most specific interpretation, the pentacle symbolizes Venus— the goddess of female sexual love and beauty".
(NOTE: The pentacle is a pentagram enclosed in a circle.)
The 5 points of the star that are being activated tonight are the Sun (Aquarius) and Moon (Leo) opposition, the Uranus (Aries) and Jupiter (Libra) opposition, and Saturn (Sagittarius).

Jamie Partridge, Astrology King

Truly, the Wisdom of the Goddess is being expanded within the Collective Consciousness of Humanity AND the restoration of the balance of power between the masculine and feminine is actively being experienced on the planet.

While those egos that remain entrenched in Patriarchy may find this to be a shocking revolution, those Spiritual beings who incarnated to be in Service to the Goddess are reveling in the Freedom that this Cosmic Revolution of LOVE portends.

In my personal chart, my Natal Mars ~ my Inner Masculine and Sacred Helpmate, is at a near exact (1° orb) conjunction with the Moon.  The Divine Mother (Luna) is pouring Her Illuminating power into my Inner Masculine.  This infusion from the Divine Mother is allowing my Inner Masculine to EMPOWER my Inner Feminine by radiating His creative inspiration and self-confidence to Her. By the completion of this Lunar Eclipse (August), they will walk the "royal path" together, knowing themselves to be Enlightened.  As Enlightened aspects of Divinity, they will pass on their greatest GIFT to Humanity: empowering others with the radiance of who They are.

If you are inspired to know which Gift the Goddess is bestowing upon you, contact me NOW to schedule a Shamanic AstroSOL™ reading.

Many blessings to you!

Mastery Path of Relationship Equality

This Friday, February 10th, will be a Full Moon in Leo.  We are already within the window of being influenced by its energies.  The impact of this full moon is being highly magnified by the Lunar Eclipse, the first eclipse of this year. Have you noticed any sleep issues over the past couple of nights?  I would attribute them to the intensity of our current full moon/eclipse frequencies.

I imagine the difference between the effects of a full moon and an eclipse as the difference between lighting a match (full moon) versus lighting a blow torch (eclipse)!  When their energies combine, it is like throwing gasoline (eclipse) on a fire (full moon).  WOW!  What a surprise!!!  Yes, eclipses are known to bring big surprises.

Although many people are uncomfortable with the intensity of eclipse energies, the wonderful thing about an eclipse is that it moves us closer to our Soul's Purpose.  It does this by getting us back on the right path ~ the path that our Soul chose to journey to achieve its mission.  This action often exposes some deep Truths that are ready and desiring to be integrated within us.

An astrological axis is like a seesaw. Within a 360° astrological chart, an axis is composed of the two signs that are opposite each other. They are 180° apart.  When the archetypes are out of balance, the axis is metaphorically similar to the first seesaw in the picture above.  Internally, it feels like the archetypes of the two signs are playing a game of tug-of-war! When the archetypes are balanced, the axis is similar to the second seesaw in the picture. Achieving balance between the conflicting archetypes is only the first step.  The Soul's goal is to alchemize their energies to create a higher expression ~ something new.  We can imagine the process like this:

The archetypical energies of  the Leo/Aquarius axis were activated during the Aquarius New Moon (January 27th).  Since then, the energies have been working together within us to find a new equilibrium point. They have created a new consciousness ~ a paradigm shift. Now at our Leo Full Moon, our new consciousness is being illuminated through our relationships.  What changes in your relationships have you noticed over the past two weeks? Prepare yourself for some potential big shifts, thanks to the Lunar Eclipse.

The Leo/Aquarius axis is known as the Mastery Path of Relationship Equality. Leo is the sign of Radical Radiant Self-love.  Aquarius is the sign of  The Humanitarian Visionary. Thus, as we engage with the Mastery Path of Relationship Equality, we are being provided an opportunity by the Cosmos to discover how we can more deeply love our uniqueness and individuality.  This is the work of the personal sign, Leo.  Simultaneously, we are also being provided an opportunity by the Cosmos to discover how we can more deeply empower and promote the uniqueness and individuality of our partner.  This is the work of the trans-personal sign, Aquarius.  Relationships, like a dance, requires two people ~ a partner.  So, while you are discovering new ways to empower your partner, your partner is also discovering new ways to empower you!  I love a win-win!!

In Shamanic Astrology, the relationship axis is determined by the signs in the 1st and 7th houses of a person's natal chart.  It designates how their Soul has chosen to experience, learn and grow through its relationships during this life. Everybody has their own unique relationship path that they are travelling.  If your Ascendant is Leo or Aquarius, then your personal relationship path is going through an amazing initiation process right now.  How exciting for you to get the booster power of the eclipse!

My consciousness has expanded the sacred container for Shamanic Astrology's relationship axis teachings. Humans are fundamentally social beings.  As social beings, we grow and evolve through our relationships. Relationships are necessary for us to be able to know ourselves.  Because of this, I believe that every time a relationship axis is activated by a New Moon and Full Moon, we collectively benefit from the aspect of relationship that is being initiated into a higher expression.  We collectively share in its initiation.

These initiations are experienced on the personal level and the global level.  There are many influences during an initiation. I am choosing to focus on the global wisdom we are receiving from Mars (Inner Masculine/Divine Masculine) and Venus (Inner Feminine/Divine Feminine.)  I am focusing on Mars and Venus because our Souls desire that we achieve Hieros Gamos ~ Sacred Marriage.  Sacred Marriage is the balancing of our Inner Masculine (Mars) and Inner Feminine (Venus).  Sacred Union is the integration of the masculine and feminine aspects of our Self.  Balance comes first, and then we integrate. The marriage occurs first, and then we consummate. When we have achieved Sacred Union, we can express the highest manifestation of our Soul's Purpose.

For the January ~ February 2017 activation of the Leo/Aquarius axis, we are looking to the Leo Archetype in the Fifth House and the Aquarius Archetype in 11th house.

The Leo Archetype encompasses:
  • the King and the Queen
  • the Leading Man and the Leading Woman
  • the Star
  • Creative Leadership
  • Self-Love
  • Inspires others to love themselves
You're supposed to be the leading lady of your own life, for god's sake! ~ Iris Simpkins, The Holiday
In the Fifth House, Leo is desiring to spontaneously and creatively express its Truth.  Leo honors its partner's creativity and inspires its partner to express his/her own Truth.  Leo stands strong in its personal sovereignty, and honors the sovereignty of its partner.  There is no co-dependence with Leo!

The Aquarius Archetype encompasses:
  • the Cosmic Revolutionary
  • the Visionary
  • the Eccentric Inventor
  • the Eagle
  • Explores all dimensions of consciousness
  • Freedom
  • Unconditional Love for Humanity

    I've learned never to close my mind to in idea simply because it seems miraculous. ~ Dan Brown, The Lost Symbol
In the Eleventh House, Aquarius knows itself as a visionary.  Aquarius desires to make a unique contribution to Humanity, and just any contribution will not do.  It must be a contribution that will uplift the plight of Humanity, so that all are seen as equal. Aquarius is seeking Ascension. Experiencing itself as multi-dimensional, it desires freedom from the physical and emotional planes. Being fair-minded, Aquarius also desires freedom for everyone.

During the Aquarius New Moon, both Mars and Venus were in Pisces intimately connecting with their Divine Selves.  Mars was located at 29° Pisces, the Karmic Degree.  Here the Inner Masculine is learning how to maintain control over his aggression. The Divine Masculine is sending a message that patriarchy is on its way out.  Venus was conjunct Chiron (Shamanic Medicine).  Here the Inner Feminine is being assured by the Divine Feminine that Sacred Union can be achieved no fear of losing its individuality.  For both partners in a relationship, this new Consciousness being received from the Cosmos is preparing the ground for the seeds of Sacred Marriage and ultimately Sacred Union.  The seeds of sovereignty, honor and freedom in Right Relationship have been sown.  Mastery of Relationship Equality is descending from the Unmanifest (Source) to be experienced in the Manifest (our Relationships). The Inner Masculine is leading the way.

During the Leo Full Moon on Friday, February 10th, both Mars and Venus are now in Aries. The shift from the Unmanifest to the Manifest has transpired.  Our Inner Masculine and Inner Feminine have received the gifts from the Divine Masculine and the Divine Feminine.  Our relationship consciousness is made new!  A new milestone has been reached in the Masculine/Feminine dynamic on Earth.  Now is the time for us to focus on the freedom that Radical Radiant Self-Love allows. When we truly, madly, deeply love ourselves, unconditional love flows forth from our Hearts as a natural by-product.  Uranus (ruler of Aquarius) is still in Aries. While it is not in orb to Mars or Venus, there is no doubt they are being influenced by Uranus' cosmic reach.  Between the Lunar Eclipse and Uranus, you can definitely expect some some startling reformations.

I encourage you to allow all the information I have shared with you to integrate during this next week.  Be aware of shifts in your inner dialogue and how you express yourself within your relationship.  Take note of shifts in how your partner is relating to you. The keyword is empowerment. Empowerment flowing both ways!  With this Lunar Eclipse, you will experience greater relationship equality throughout the next six months.  If you don't already journal, I invite you to keep a journal between now and August, so that you will be aware of just how much your relationship has transformed.

Remember that I have only highlighted the Global ramifications of the Leo/Aquarius axis initiation. If you would like clarity on how this initiation is refining you, please contact me to schedule a personal Shamanic AstroSOL reading.

I appreciate you taking the time to let me know in the comments section below how this information has been helpful to you.  Thank you!
