immigrantsbest one

This morning I heard an economic report, which suggests Japan’s depressed economy is partially due to a deep resistance to immigration in a land with an aged and decreasing population. Here in the U.S. we are also dependant upon immigrants for a younger work force, and for new energy and a wide spectrum of viewpoints. Yet we want to squeeze those who come here in desperate search for a better life, and keep them out of sight, dependent upon any employer who wants to exploit their vulnerable status. Obama’s first step towards reform is perfectly timed to the entry of the Sun and Moon into Sagittarius this Saturday morning. Sagittarius appreciates variety in people and cultures, and feels a deep commitment to justice. Sagittarius aims for the heavens and says we are all citizens of the earth. The energy of this sign is a combination of spirit and matter.

Sagittarius is the archer who aims his arrow towards the center of the Milky Way, our Galaxy.   There is no end to how universal we really are when we stop to look around us and within us!   This new Moon joins the ‘new’ Sun in Sagittarius at 00.° What will you begin in this visionary sign? What new boundaries will you cross? Venus in Sagittarius adds the love magic of the sign to this moment. Sagittarius is open to limitless possibility and responds with boundless gratitude!

November Wren

Three thirty– afternoon

of dark and light November,

the voice of the wren

lifts me from my book

to turn and kneel

before the window’s shining altar.

In the pear tree, just outside,

a tiny messenger,

no bigger than a baby’s fist,

leaps like a beating heart,

her tail, a lever

of sweet uncounted notes,

her throat a channel

for the sound of liquid silver.

She dances to keep her place secure

wedged within the crotch

of the dark branch,

a tiny burst of voice

who sings of interruption,

the piping hymn to the god

who arrives unbidden

in smiling silence, spirit insistent,

a star’s spark in silver twilight.

Wren is the voice of initiation,

and where she leads

beyond the pear tree,

is land uncharted.

She is the last pear left

upon the winter tree,

where next May

a tower of white blossom

will celebrate her visit

from the world of song.

new Moon in Sagittarius '14

Neptune, the dreamer makes a square to this seed of a Moon cycle. What will come of our visions of the future? If we dream catastrophe, we help to create it, but perhaps we can open our hearts with Sagittarian optimism to new possibilities of peace and understanding. Here is a song for this new Moon, Steve Gold’s ‘Spirit I am.’   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZnGQ6W2RCWc

‘Looking in the mirror, I’m asking

Am I the change I long to see?

You know the world, is just a picture

Of what’s inside of you and me’   Steve Gold

Start something your spirit prompts you to begin at this moment! Sagittarius rules long distance journeys, head out to new horizons, even if you don’t know where you will end up.

Moon Mad

The Moon loves to inhabit Taurus! She is at her highest form of visible manifestation during the year, as she reflects the Sun in Scorpio. Taurus is a sign of value, and this Moon reminds us of our self worth and the knowledge that we too are here to shine in some way. Taurus is the playground of Venus, the planet of love, and wealth. What is value? What is the source of your wealth? What we value is the key to our happiness.

When we turn to the earth and sky for celebration, we dance to the rhythm of Taurus for this constellation celebrates the earth element, and the goddess who animates all earthy life. This is the perfect moment to fully appreciate our bodies, home to our spirits, and to sing songs to our home the earth. Dance under the light of this full Moon. Wherever you are, as she rises at sundown on Thursday night, and even in rain or snow, your body, sacred to her, will provide a pounding heart of gratitude if you listen to her song.

This is the Moon of Ngetal, the Reed.   Reed provides homes for many, and music. There is the music of the wind in the reeds and the music that reeds provide as instruments. Reed grows in places where water and earth meet, just as the full Moon in Taurus is a meeting between the earth sign Taurus and the water sign, Scorpio.  Ngetal Moon is about direction, and finding the way to our goal. The Reed bows where other may break, but is always a source of new life and action.

The Pleiades are also in Taurus. They mark the garlands on the Bull, and their appearance at sundown marks the season when we honor the Ancestors. For Druids, the rising and setting of the Seven Sisters is a reminder of two important holidays, Beltane and Samhain. Beltane is the celebration when this star cluster sets at sundown. It is the time of fertility and new growth. The Sun dwells in Taurus and smiles upon the earth as we celebrate Mother’s Day, and our mother planet. At Samhain as they rise with Taurus at sundown, we know it is the time of release, and the return to the earth, the mother, the celebration of death. The gates between the daylight world and the Otherworld are open to allow us to come and pass freely between life and death.

Moongate

Like all full Moons we have this opportunity to integrate and weave opposite seasons and signs with very different impulses. This is what Moon has worked on during the last two weeks since she was embedded with the Sun in Scorpio. We learned about the deep exploration of Scorpio. I recently heard an interview with a therapist (Dr. Bessel Van der Kolk) who has developed a practice and a center devoted to trauma.   The necessity to look at our wounds would be the Scorpio part of the healing process, but he has become more and more convinced that the body must be brought into the work he does.   Trauma is embedded in the body, and that is where Taurus comes into the picture. Even as we attempt to ‘understand’ our sorrows, we must also learn to trust and reassure our body, and give it room for expression.

Looking at the chart for this particular full Moon in Taurus, we discover Saturn, Venus and the asteroid Pallas Athena are close to the Scorpio Sun. This suggests that work, love, and wisdom function best when we clear away old treasures. The Taurus Moon may resist this work of ruthless transformation. Yet Taurus is the cauldron where the alchemical process of Scorpio takes place. A meeting between Mars and Pluto, which becomes exact on November 10th has the potential for powerful energy release whether in destruction and/or construction of social and financial forms. Mars will then make a square to Uranus on November 12th. The impetus for truth telling with this combination is strong. Fortunately the power of healing represented by Chiron is in this mix (a sextile to the Moon and a trine to the Sun).

As always, I wish you a joyous celebration of this Moon in her full expression,     Sarah
