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.

21 February 2012 – 2012 Pisces New Moon – a Moon of refection and completion

2012 Pisces New Moon

The Big Winds Time

By Dale Osadchuk

Romania tine – 22 February 2012 at 12.36 am

As Snowy Owl and Shooting Star climbed the path to the Star Temple to celebrate The Big Winds Moon Time they noticed that Grandfather Sun was staying higher in the sky than he was at the last New Moon. This told them that this was the last New Moon of the North Direction on the Medicine Wheel, the place of solitude, silence, serenity, and wisdom. The sisters were each lost in their own thoughts by the time they reached the Sacred Circle wondering what Sister Moon’s message would be. As soon as they were seated they heard her speak.

“Welcome Medicine Women. This is the Big Winds Time. Although you cannot see us Grandfather Sun and I are asking you to name what you are ready to release so that healing and completion can happen. The next time he and I meet it will be the Blossoming Trees Time, the time of new beginnings. It is essential that you do not carry old hurts, resentments, or conflicts into the next Moon cycle for that will mean you will be dealing with those emotional issues for the next 12 New Moons. Now is the time to heal and transform so renewal and rebirth can happen.”

Sister Moon continued “The Wanderers you see in the western sky are Evening Star, called Venus in the far away time, and Marduk above her, called Jupiter in that time. They will be travelling together for this current Moon cycle drawing closer and closer until they seem to touch when I am in my Fourth Quarter Phase. That is the realignment and revision Time. They are the Starry Ones who send blessings of Growth, Expansion, and Love, when you are free from the emotions that hold you back. Let them guide you to freedom as you release the old that no longer serves you.”

Sister Moon fell silent and Snowy Owl and Shooting Star watched as first Evening Star then Marduk slipped below the horizon. The sisters sat in the darkness but felt the blessings of the two Wanderers and Sister Moon. Both Snowy Owl and Shooting Star were thinking about what they were going to complete and release. They were ready.


The astrological symbol for this Pisces New Moon is two fish swimming in opposite directions but joined by a cord with a Sacred Knot. In the Constellation of Pisces that is the Fixed Star called Al Rescha and its theme is to join together two different concepts or ideas to create greater understanding which then leads to acceptance and wisdom. We can think of this as two aspects of the self. One fish is swimming towards Aquarius and group identity, the sense of belonging, which can sometimes lead to loss of self. The other fish is swimming towards Aries and personal freedom, which can sometimes create too much independence and cause us to reject those closest to us. The goal is inner harmony so we can be at peace whomever we are with and wherever we are.

This Pisces New Moon is asking us to heal, forgive, release, and complete emotional lessons we have been struggling with for the past year. Think back to April 03, 2011 which was the Aries Moon of new beginnings. Have you been able to create the inspired life you want? Have you been able to be your authentic self in all aspects of your experiences? Have you been true to yourself which allows others the same gift? Are you walking your path with spiritual purpose? These are the questions to ask and answer at this Completion Moon so you can release what blocks you from being empowered in your life.

Pisces is the sign of the artist, poet, dancer, and the Mystic. This is the Moon that is found on the Tarot Constellation of The Hermit, the principle of Introspection and Personal Integrity along with its opposite sign Virgo. At this Lunation the Earth is in Virgo along with retrograde Mars. The theme is journeying within to seek the spiritual self (Virgo) and journeying within to discover the Inner Universe that is the reflection of Great Mystery (Pisces). This is a Moon of reflection, silence, and serenity. Use this gift to connect to your Sacred Center and that Inner Knowing will guide you as you release the old.

There are two rulers of this Moon. The ancient one is Jupiter in Taurus. He is working in Harmony with the modern ruler Neptune in Pisces conjunct the New Moon. Together they are guiding us to experience enlightenment as we expand our Spiritual Consciousness and manifest our Soul Purpose. But Neptune is also a symbol for illusion. So this New Moon is asking you to look at what is true, what is not true, and what can never be true. The other Wanderers that are aligned in Pisces are Pallus Athena, spiritual warrior and Goddess of Wisdom, Chiron, the wounded healer and problem solver, Mercury, our thoughts and perceptions and how we create our experiences through what we are focused on, and Vesta, the Goddess of Spiritual Practice and Commitment to our Soul Path. Again this is not a Moon of action, it is a Moon of refection and completion.

The Animal Totems that guide us at this Lunation are Cougar, coming into your personal power, and Wolf, guardian and teacher about change. The Clan Mother is Weighs The Truth who is guardian of the burden basket. This is the sacred object you can give your worries to and they will be lifted. She is also the keeper of Divine Law, justice and equality. She is the destroyer of deception and teaches us to accept the truth within. She is the guardian of the Sacred Self. Her full story can be found in the 13 Original Clan Mothers and Earth Medicine both by Jamie Sams.

Pisces and its opposite sign of Virgo (the Earth is in Virgo at this Lunation) are active on the 6th Ray of Idealism and Devotion. It is a difficult Ray as its planets are Mars (aggression or spiritual motivation) and Neptune (illusion or enlightenment). The Archangels who guide us are Uriel, harmony and peace, and Aurora Grace, gentleness and compassion. Pisces is also active on the 2nd Ray of Divine Love and Wisdom with Archangels Jophiel, creative power and Divine Vision, and Constance Christine, Divine Illumination. Let us all call on the gifts these Archangels offer to bring balance to the world and our own lives.

An astrologer I really like is Raven Kaldera. He calls this Pisces New Moon The Dreamers Moon. His book Moon Phase Astrology describes each Moon Phase by giving it a magical name and telling its story. For example the Aries Crescent Moon of February 25 is The Torch Bearers Moon of inspired enthusiasm. During that phase the Moon will visually join Venus in Aries Feb 24 and 25 giving us all the energy to expand our creative expression. On Feb 26 Sister Moon, still in her Crescent phase, enters Taurus and joins Jupiter sending blessings of expansion, growth, and manifestation of our spiritual vision. This is the Gardener’s Moon, to nurture the seeds planted at the New Moon. If you know the Moon Phase you were born under his insights are very interesting. Just remember the Moon cycle we are in is to clear and complete so we can take action at the Aries New Moon of March 22.

Speaking of the Moon Phases they are not written yet. I do not know if Spirit no longer wants me to share the insights as it has been a struggle to express them the last few times. I will use the power of this Mystical Pisces New Moon to discover the answer.

Blessings Dale

I am hoping to begin the Moon Circle journeys and meditations at The Rising Sun in Richmond Hill in March. I will let everyone know once dates are confirmed. Also anyone who has requested astrology sessions I have not forgotten and will be in touch soon. February has been a time of challenge but challenge is also opportunity. I keep reminding myself new doors are opening as a result.
