Romania Time – 21 May 2012, 02.48 AM
It was late afternoon when Snowy Owl and Shooting Star climbed the path to the Star Temple.
They had been to visit The Shaman and he told them they must go early for there was a special surprise waiting for them. The sisters walked in silent anticipation.
When they reached the Sacred Circle the Winged One with the heart shaped face was perched on a branch of the Standing One that guarded their magic capes. Little Owl said “Sister Moon and Grandfather Sun are having a very special meeting in the far away time and have requested that I lead you through time and space so you can see the mystical event.” The sisters retrieved their feather capes and as soon as they put them on they took flight following Little Owl into the far away time.
He led them to the southwest part of Turtle Island to the land of canyons and red rocks. It was the place of the ancient cliff dwellers and the remains of their homes could still be seen on the canyon walls. Little Owl landed them all on a cliff top overlooking a deep gorge that had a river flowing through it. He motioned to the sisters to put on special glasses and look to the west. As they did they saw Sister Moon beginning to cross in front of Grandfather Sun. Within minutes the dark New Moon had a ring of fire surrounding her. Snowy Owl and Shooting Star gasped in amazement at the sight. In the slightly darkened sky they could also see the Starry Ones called the Seven Sisters dancing beside Sister Moon and Grandfather Sun.
“We asked Little Owl to lead you here to the far away time for this gateway of awakening that is opening for the two leggeds” Sister Moon said “ the time for humanity to write a new story begins now. For the next seven Moon cycles that will be what Creator and Great Mystery are asking each and everyone to do. The old way will no longer be allowed.” Sister Moon fell silent to let the message be absorbed. Then she continued “We ask that you continue to be guides for the two leggeds in this far away time as they walk through the gateway into the new.”
When Sister Moon moved away from Grandfather Sun she disappeared from view but her message echoed throughout the canyons. As Grandfather Sun began to set in the west Little Owl began to flap his weeks indicating it was time to return home. As the trio took flight behind them on the western horizon there was a blaze of brilliant pinks, scarlet, and purples. Snowy Owl and Shooting Star knew they would take this journey to the far away time very often in the next seven Moon cycles. They were excited about what would unfold for the Earth Mother and all her kingdoms. The sisters would guide the two leggeds into their lightness of being.
This powerful Gemini New Moon Solar Eclipse is what we have all been waiting for. Finally we are coming out of the fog of confusion into the sunlight of clarity. For the last six months it has been difficult to be motivated and inspired but this Lunation at 00 degrees Gemini 21 minutes promises “success and a long awaited breakthrough.” The Sabian Symbol is “a glass bottomed boat reveals undersea wonders.” “The conscious mind becoming clear and a new dimension of reality is perceived.” (An Astrological Mandala by Dane Rudhyar) Hallelujah!!!
This Eclipse is aligned with the Pleiadian Star cluster also called the Seven Sisters. It is an ancient symbol for the mystical and has fascinated star gazers for eons of time. The main Starry One of the cluster is Alcyone and she is at 00 degrees Gemini currently. In Star and Planet Combinations astrologer Bernadette Brady describes “This Star seeks the inner eye, the third eye. Alcyone is associated with a desire to seek inner knowledge and is linked to the Fates and the judgment of the dead. It is a star which suggests visionary and mystical abilities, but also the potential for ruthlessness and judgmental anger. It can be associated with great insight, but also narrow-mindedness.” Let us hope all the two leggeds choose to work with this powerful energy to look within and find their Light.
The planetary ruler for this Eclipse and New Moon is Mercury currently in Taurus and conjunct Jupiter. He is asking us to focus on expansion, growth, and manifestation of our vision from a place of inner power. Venus is the Soul Centered ruler of Gemini and the traditional ruler of Taurus so she is a very powerful influence at this Lunation. She turned retrograde in Gemini 5 days ago so she too is asking us to look deep within to find our personal power and write our new story. Remember this Eclipse and the planetary dance it activates will be the theme for the next seven Moon cycles. We will write more about the Venus journey at the Sagittarius Full Moon Eclipse.
The Animal Totem who guides us at this Lunation is Deer, gentleness, compassion, and loving communication. The Clan Mother is Storyteller, the guardian of speaking the truth from the heart. She teaches us the art of listening so we can hear another’s truth and have empathy. She is the keeper of curiosity, innocence, and the magical child. She teaches us to discover our story and live it. You can find more of her teachings in the 13 Original Clan Mothers and Earth Medicine both by Jamie Sams. You can also discover more about Deer Medicine in her oracle Medicine Cards co-authored by David Carson.
Gemini is found on the Tarot Constellation of The Lovers, relationship and choice. The theme is the urge to unite, the choice to love, ourselves in relation to each other. The other sign of this Constellation is Capricorn and its expresses the shadow of the urge to separate, the choice to fear, ourselves in relation to the world. With Pluto in Capricorn we have the opportunity to transform the latter and live our Soul Purpose. When we are aligned with our Universal Purpose ego issues fall away.
Gemini is only found on the Second Ray of Divine Love and Wisdom. This New Moon eclipse asks us all to express Loving kindness in our life and fear will disappear. The Archangel who guides us is Jophiel, creative power and vision. When you call on him he will assemble a legion of angels to help you manifest your greatest dream. A wonderful oracle about the Angel Guides is Angel Blessings by Kimberly Marooney. Jophiel’s feminine counterpart is Constance Christine, spiritual illumination. Call on both these Archangels to support you as you express your true story.
I wish for all of you the wonderful gifts this Gemini Solar Eclipse is offering will show you the gateway that is waiting for you to walk through to your new story.
