The Illuminating Gift of the Goddess

Our Full Moon in VIRGO is POWER PACKED!  So many energies are converging simultaneously to support the paradigm shift that is unfolding in the Collective Consciousness of Humanity.  Before we dive-in, let's take a step back to look at some of the cycles that have been occurring in the Virgo/Pisces axis which have led us here.

Since approximately mid October of 2015, the North Node began its journey through Virgo.  The North Node journey has been about realigning the Collective Consciousness with the Ancient Wisdom of the Goddess. It has been adapting and fine-tuning the consciousness of our local communities, as our modern day tribes, for receiving a "grass roots" reseeding of the Goddess Wisdom onto the planet.  Over the past year and a half, the reseeding has taken root in the Collective Consciousness. The seeds of Goddess Wisdom have germinated.  We can now recognize the Presence of the Goddess Wisdom through Her sprouts.

From the beginning of 2015, before the North Node moved into Virgo, the soil of the Collective Consciousness was being tilled in preparation for the reseeding by the energies of Mars (1/13 - 2/20) and Venus (1/28 - 2/20) from Pisces as Sacred Helpmates. The Heirloom Seeds of the Ancient Wisdom that would be reseeded were going through the threshing and winnowing process by Mercury (3/14 - 3/31) from Pisces. Together, the energies of Venus (7-19 - 7/31), Mercury (8/8 - 8/27) and Sun (8/24 - 9/23) in Virgo fertilized the soil of the Collective Consciousness. Mars in Virgo (9/26 - 11/29) shared His energies as Light. Jupiter in Virgo (8/12/15 - 9/9/16) offered His energies as food. Meanwhile, the energies of Neptune had been, and continues to be, water the soil of Collective Consciousness from Cosmic Consciousness in Pisces.  (SIDE NOTE: It is no surprise that our Water Protectors have come into and remain in our public consciousness. Neptune in Pisces)

Through 2016, Mercury and Venus continued to nurture and nourish the growing Consciousness of Goddess Wisdom as they made their visits through Virgo and Pisces.

We began 2017 with Mars in Pisces, and Venus quickly joined Him there. In January, together again as Sacred Helpmates, Mars and Venus were preparing Virgo to receive the Goddess Wisdom that would be activated by the upcoming March Venus Retrograde cycle which will reach that point (26°)  in Cosmic Consciousness on April 15th that is opposite this Full Moon in Virgo (20°).

As I discuss in my post, Venus Retrograde Vision Quest, we are being realigned with and re-empowered by the Sacred Feminine AND we are receiving GIFTS from the GODDESS as the reemergence of Goddess Wisdom through NEW Aquarian Goddess Archetypes.  This Full Moon in Virgo is ILLUMINATING our Collective Consciousness to this shifting paradigm, so that we can be AWARE of this Wisdom and consciously choose to step into Its power.

In the brief period of time since the beginning of 2017, we have experienced:

Our Galactic Center is located at 26° of Sagittarius.  It is the second most powerful point on your natal chart next to the Sun.  Just as the Sun represents our Heart, the Galactic Center represents the Heart of our Galaxy.  It is the Sun of our Sun.

Saturn has been exactly conjoined with the Galactic Center (GC) since February 18th.  On March 6th, Saturn moved to 27°.  However, Saturn will retrograde back over the GC in May and November before moving out of Sagittarius and into Capricorn. Keywords for Saturn that are often overlooked are WISDOM and DESTINY.  Saturn requires patience, and through patience, we will be receiving The Gifts from the Goddess, as the reemergence of Goddess Wisdom through NEW Aquarian Goddess Archetypes, directly from the Sacred Feminine right through our Galactic Center ALL YEAR!

Saturn is the Cosmic Gatekeeper.  He allows all things from the Cosmos to come through and be made manifest on Earth.  He provides the foundation for that which we create in the same way that a loom is the foundation for a tapestry, a canvas is the foundation for a painting, a choreography is the foundation for a dance, or an architectural design is the foundation for a building.

With Saturn conjoined the Galactic Center, a cosmic gateway has been opened to allow us to receive the FIRE (Wisdom) from "the Gods."  This FIRE is initiating our Inner Masculine and Inner Feminine into an energetically NEW foundation ~ a foundation of Higher Resonance ~ from which to engage with the world and Humanity.  ALL of this Expansion of the Collective Consciousness is connected.  They are fractals of our Ascension Process.  And ... there is MORE!

At this time of our Full Moon in Virgo:

  • the Moon is square SATURN (27°16' Sagittarius)
  • the Moon is trine PLUTO (19°01' Capricorn)
  • the Moon is sextile VESTA (20°13' Cancer)
    • Pluto (Capricorn) is opposite Vesta (Cancer)
  • the Moon is opposite MERCURY (26°17' Pisces)
  • the Moon is opposite PALLAS (23°51' Pisces) and CHIRON (24°33 Pisces)
  • the Sun (21°36' Pisces) is conjoined PALLAS, CHIRON and MERCURY

HOLY SMOKES!  How can our little minds comprehend the power that is being illuminated within us right now?!?!  It can't!!!  It would be a total circuit overload of our electrical system (brain and nervous system).  Thankfully, we do not have to be concerned about this.  With Mercury in Pisces, as the Messenger of the Gods, He is acting as a transformer to step down the voltage of this electrical current, so that we CAN receive all that we are intended to receive.

Before I close, I would like to take a little time to share with you the contributions of Vesta, Pallas and Chiron to the Illumination of our Collective Consciousness at this Full Moon in Virgo.  Through them, we are discovering that, just as our local communities are our modern-day tribes, our physical bodies ~ which are Consciousness ~ are our modern-day Goddess Temples.

Vesta is a co-ruler of Virgo.  She is the aspect of the Goddess that we know as SHAKTI ~ Kundalini. She is the fire within us that drives us towards the Sacred.  She is our courage and our willingness to surrender to keep the fire alive.Vesta is the driving force behind our Ascension Process.  As She aligns Her energy with the Moon (Divine Mother), She is amplifying the edict from the Sacred Feminine to balance the power between the Masculine and the Feminine.

Pallas is the Goddess of Wisdom and Self-Defense.  She has long been split from Athena, the Warrior Goddess, whose power was usurped by Patriarchy.  Before Her split, Pallas Athena was the Goddess of Wisdom and Armed Resistance.  After Her split, Athena's "armed resistance" was shifted through the Patriarchy into the energy of aggression and war.
The Greek goddess Athena identified with the patriarchy and usually cast her power and support on their side during any dispute. In the first jury trial in recorded history, she cast the deciding vote to acquit Orestes of the murdering his mother to avenge his father's death. Athena was persuaded by Apollo's argument in Orestes' defense that the death of a mother was of less importance than a father's death since the woman simply nurtured the seed while it was actually the man who planted it. Motherless herself, the goddess Athena usually placed patriarchal principles above maternal bonds. ~ Goddess Gift
With the emergence of the Aquarian Goddess Archetype for Aries, Athena will no longer act out as the aggressor. In the age of the Aquarian Goddess, Pallas and Athena will reunite to use Their Wisdom to deal with and resolve conflict from a place of nonviolence. Pallas's position in Pisces at this Full Moon in Virgo is a foreshadowing of Her integration with Athena through the remaining Venus Retrograde cycles in Aries.

Chiron represents our Sacred Wound which becomes our Sacred Gift ~ our Shamanic Medicine.  The Sacred Wound represents the wounds of the Patriarchy.  As we heal these wounds, we access their gifts and acquire our Shamanic Medicine. In Pisces at this Full Moon in Virgo, Chiron is assisting Mercury as we receive the Ancient Goddess Wisdom from Cosmic Consciousness and assimilate and harmonize it within both the Collective Consciousness and our Individual Consciousness.

I know this Full Moon in Virgo may feel like you are trying to surf a Tsunami wave. Trust and Know that the Cosmos has your back. You will not be knocked over. You will not be pulled under.  Should you require any support, I invite you to schedule a Shamanic AstroSOL™ reading with me.

Be sure to go out and celebrate this Full Moon!  I will be dancing around a fire under the light of the moon with some new sisters.

Many blessings to you!
