Virgo Full Moon ~ Goddess Style

It is snowing up a storm here today and this doesn’t surprise me at all. Anytime there is a full moon with a water component ( Sun/ Neptune/ Chiron in Pisces), precipitation is active and truly means business.The new header image was shot this morning. Here is another shot I took later today:

I enjoy doing some type of divination on the new and full moons. For a good while I have been using my Sacred Path Cards. Today I wanted to give my new Goddess Tarot a spin. This deck has meaning because a dear friend gifted it to me and I enjoy exploring the Goddess energies. When I remembered she gifted me my first oracle deck, I realized that all of my cards have been gifted. All except for the Sacred Path cards that I purchased as part of a Grad school assignment on Native American culture. It is so interesting that so many people have sent cards my way. Could it be a sign of some kind? Most definitely yes!

So I concocted a 3 card spread for today’s full moon. I shuffled the cards and set my intention for illumination on this full moon period. Here is the spread ~  First card is the Sun, Second card is the Moon, and 3rd card is the integration of both energies.

CARD 1 FOR SUN IN PISCES: QUEEN OF CUPS

da0f8e9c696c6293b132fcea43fd8a66

Meaning: The full moon ( yes, full moon!) is a halo around the crown of the majestic Queen of Cups. Her regal mysterious being inspires people to look within to inspire their souls. Mastery of all that Venus and the suit of Cups represents ~ art, beauty, intimacy, love. The ability to express love to nurture others.  An older woman who inspires others to live harmoniously.

CARD 2 FOR MOON IN VIRGO: ACE OF PENTACLES

22-Minor-Discs-Ace

Meaning: A lush tree bears a fantastic fruit – a single golden pentacle.  It is decorated with symbols of the lotus and the five-pointed star.  The purest evocation of prosperity, fertility, and generosity.  The beginning of a new phase of life that promises all of these things.

CARD 3 FOR INTEGRATION OF SUN AND MOON: FOUR OF CUPS

0d62cf31a228541a7d4c987fad4e78aa

Meaning: After overindulging, the woman sits beneath a tree, hoping to ground herself after the excitement of intoxication.  Four cups rest before her but she has drunk enough. Too much if a good thing.  Taking something for granted – love, talents, beauty. Discontent or boredom.

I have to say the cards were clearly in the flow. Cups for Pisces, Pentacles for Virgo and Four of Cups for integration of Water and Earth ( 4 =  building a foundation with Cups = water). On a more nuanced note, I see this lunation as the marriage of the  Pisces/Neptune ( the higher octave of Venus) with Virgo/ Mercury with a kick ( Mercury is in Aquarius ruled by Uranus in Aries that is headed towards the last of 7 Pluto Uranus squares on March 16th). This marriage is quite Venusian as Venus is currently conjunct Uranus and square Pluto. The integration is to be receptive to the energies but to maintain a balance. Know when it is time to regroup and assimilate all you have  received.

I can see how much of this reading applies to me and I hope it offers guidance for you as we ride this cosmic roller coaster. I am reminded of the practices I initiated in 2014, radical gratitude and acceptance of the ultimate love of the universe. The force is with us, never against us. We have all that we could ever need and more. It is all about waking up and increasing our awareness of all that lies before us.

Art Therapy ~ A Thousand Points of Lite

As I continue to be holed up here in the frozen tundra, I  heal myself with art therapy. While I have several worthy drafts in several stages of completion, I do not feel compelled to write. But I do feel compelled to share beauty and light.

Today’s post is devoted to the technique of pointillism. This technique was developed by Seurat and Signac in 1886, according to Wikipedia. While pointillism has not been widely used by many artists, I am showcasing works by a variety of those that heeded the call. Feel free to comment on your favorites. Also share with us ( me and Dexter and fellow litebeings) which types of paintings make you swoon or break out into a state of bliss.

Mosaic and Pointillism Art as Unity Consciousness

While conversing with a bloggette, I realized another reason why both the mosaic and pointillism painting techniques move me so. In both techniques the large image is composed of smaller, sometimes subtle, particles that often shimmer and glisten. Klimt was heavily influenced by both techniques and the art I present here are such examples. They are part of his Golden phase collection.

Quantum particles perhaps? The concept of duality played out on the canvas? I wonder if these compositions are allegorical representations of how the whole is so much more than the sum of its parts. Yet in this physical reality, the parts are precious and maintain their separate vibration. There lies the rub. Somehow the art is able to reconcile the paradox seamlessly. So here is to more Klimt and increased enlightenment through art medicine.

Please enjoy the show:

Answer the Call

I am in love with this video. It is a rap ascension video. Yes, you read this right! It is like no-thing I have ever heard.  It latched onto my heart and my soul grinned in agreement. Then he mentioned being a Scorpio!

Enough said. Time to listen.

Art is My Medicine

If I could go to an Art healer, perhaps my health issues would evaporate. But in the meantime, my new book on Gustav Klimt is salve for my wounds. This book is just what the doctor ordered, figuratively speaking.

Did you know Klimt is a mosaic artist? Now I know, and my heart sings with glee. Mosaics delight me in a way my brain cannot comprehend. I am currently delighting in Klimt’s landscape series. He was influenced by Seurat to a degree. You know Seurat, the master of pointillism and my favorite painter. Here are some of Klimt’s landscapes. Go ahead and dive right in. The water is fine!

Perhaps I will eventually compose my post on the Barnes Foundation. But please take your medicine in the interim. Neptune insists that we do so now. Love is my religion and art is my medicine. A spoonful is never enough, and no sugar is needed to help the medicine go down.

Giving and Receiving

Oh what a week it has been!

 

Dreams vivid

Sleep poor

Heart screaming

*Limbs are soar  sore

Muscles on fire

Tummy rumble

Pain and agony

Keep me humble

 

If I can turn body misery into poetry, maybe I will survive after all!

Throughout all the medical madness I have been preparing and planning for the organization of my first Meetup group. It took place today and it was fantastic. I put myself through so much torture over the details. Finding the right room was an adventure that proved more challenging than I imagined.  Both of the spaces I was interested in were located in a church. The song Take Me to Church kept prompting me to survey the local churches. The names of the women in charge of rentals at the churches I visited are Angela and Angelique. Interesting, don’t you think? When I do what I am called to do and put the logistical cart before the horse, my ego screams in protest. The calling to speak about the mystical path has been growing steadily over time. I have been ready, but still frightened of the responsibility of leadership.  But it all worked out so well. Lovely space, beautiful people, and a sense that I am on the right path. I was called to create a structure that I wish was there when I was young and needed one.

 

When I return home there is a huge envelope waiting for me from a friend:

Goddess-Tarot

Now I knew the book would be coming at some time TBD, but the tarot deck was an unexpected bonus. I cannot wait to play with these, yea!

Life is back and forth, up and down, inward and outward, inhale and exhale, give and receive.

The timing of the gifts is exquisite: A reward for mobilizing through the physical pain and following through on my vision for starting a Meetup for Mystical Awareness.

If you are local and want to join the meetup, contact me and I will hook you up.

I have some of the best friends in the world. They are generous, kind, and have great timing apparently. In the larger picture I see that I am being watched over , throughout the periods of darkness and suffering. I still don’t know why my body goes off and does its own thing. It could simply be the aftermath of cumulative stress and worry over my unstable lifestyle. Or a distraction to tempt me to abandon my dreams. Or both, or neither..

Does that mean I must suffer in order to receive “rewards”? Hell no! I am just noticing the rhythm of this week. Today is Sun Neptune and I have this aspect natally. There is some glimmer of light a midst the haze.

 

Namaste

 

* Postscript: After a chaotic week, I can report that I slept like a baby last night and I am so grateful. As I reviewed my minipoem here today, I noticed a typo. I typed soar instead of sore. That got me thinking, perhaps my body is soaring and I am experiencing growing   pains. Or maybe it was just a typo.

Litebeing’s Guide to the Movies

litebeing:

I am re blogging this post in honor of the Oscars tomorrow. Films are my salvation and frankly we all can benefit from all forms of inspirational art.  Bless you oh mighty Neptune for your gifts of the cinema.
With love, litebeing

In honor of the Oscars, I had to showcase some of my favorite spiritually themed films. Some of my choices are more obscure, and therefore less well-known. A few are controversial (big surprise!) while others are more mainstream, crowd pleasers.

Here’s an alphabetical list with my brief critiques below, enjoy!

Bee Season  (2005)

This movie stars Richard Gere who mentors his daughter while his family falls apart.  It was adapted from the book Bee Season about a young girl’s quest to win a spelling bee. It is a tale about both mysticism and alienation.

The Blue Bird  ( 1940)

I first stumbled onto this Shirley Temple feature as a child and was mesmerized by this story about the search for the bluebird of happiness. The way in which the future was characterized was both otherworldly and heart wrenching   The memory of this magical realm stayed with me for years and was just as captivating during…

Great Mystery New Moon

So tonight is the second Aquarius new moon and a Black Moon at that! We go right to Sun and Moon in Pisces within hours of the lunation. Then tomorrow is the transition from the Chinese Year of the Horse to Year of the Sheep.

Whoa, I am exhausted just thinking about all these sweeping ex-changes! So much at once in the midst of the final looming Pluto Uranus square in March.

So I meditated and pulled a card for me and you.

 

37_greatmystery

 

This is such a great card for me ( and you). I have really been feeling lost, confused and excited all at once. There are so many  powerful transits affecting my chart as well as that of the collective. This new moon is conjunct my Chiron and opposite my chart ruler (Uranus). So let’s just say that I cannot feel any beginnings or endings. It is all one endless whoosh..

So as I am unable to discern what lies ahead ( or in front of me) today, I will allow myself to ride and glide along the oceanic waves. I will not resist, I will allow. Uranus and Neptune are hosting this party and they insist that we respect their power and intensity. In order to avoid electrocution, one must alter their vibration. There is no other alternative.

To honor Chiron ( who is currently in Pisces) is to allow wounds to surface and be healed. He is not for the faint of heart. Facing whatever appears is essential now.  Mystery does not want us to use limited the human mind and precious energy in a quest for the unfathomable. This fruitless search is a mere distraction from true purpose.

Now my purpose may take a different route than yours, but ultimately we are traveling together.

To be love in this world

 

Which brings me to Stevie Wonder, of course. While watching the Grammy Tribute Concert, I was struck by the poignant lyrics of As. This may have been written as a personal love song, but I see Spirit’s handiwork all over it. It addresses mystery, Divine purpose, and the law of Attraction. There are so many layers of meaning here. Interesting too is the choice of album cover for Songs in the key of Life. Such a lovely spiral  happens to graces the cover.

When I had a great awakening in 2005, I began hearing some old songs differently. Words and melodies would leap out to me in ways that underscored subtle truths. This was one of the songs that I heard in ” another key.”

Here are some of the lyrics that woke me up and opened my heart even wider:

Until the day is night and night becomes the day—ALWAYS
Until the trees and seas just up and fly away—ALWAYS
Until the day that 8x8x8 is 4—ALWAYS
Until the day that is the day that are no more
Did you know that you’re loved by somebody?
Until the day the earth starts turning right to left—ALWAYS
Until the earth just for the sun denies itself
I’ll be loving you forever
Until dear Mother Nature says her work is through—ALWAYS
Until the day that you are me and I am you—AL~~~~~~WA~~
~~~~~AA~~~~~~~AA~~~~
Until the rainbow burns the stars out in the sky~~~~~AA~~~~
~~~~AA~~~~~~~AA~~~~~~~~~AA~~~~~~~YS~~ALWAYS

We all know sometimes lifes hates and troubles
Can make you wish you were born in another time and space
But you can bet you life times that and twice its double
That God knew exactly where he wanted you to be placed
so make sure when you say you’re in it but not of it
You’re not helping to make this earth a place sometimes called Hell
Change your words into truths and then change that truth into love
And maybe our children’s grandchildren
And their great-great grandchildren will tell
I’ll be loving you

 

What do you hear?

Secret

springtime-of-love-1917.jpg!HalfHD

 

Wanna know a secret?

Love yourself.

It is not really a secret.

You always had the answer deep within.

That’s all you need to know.

Period.

 

Let’s love who we are all the time.

No-thing else is necessary. No-thing else is real.

 

 

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Cracking our Inner Shells!
