The Origin of Easter’s Symbols and Sacred Objects

Thanks to Ann for the link to this informative article! I knew many of these facts but still found some surprises tucked in there like little Easter eggs. ;)

The Origin of Easter’s Symbols and Sacred Objects
Jennifer L. Shelton’s Blog

Most of you probably know that the date of Easter, as celebrated by the Christian church, is pagan in origin. “Like all the church’s ‘movable feasts,’ Easter shows its pagan origin in a dating system based on the old lunar calendar. It is fixed as the first Sunday after the first full moon after the spring equinox, at a time when the Goddess Eostre slew and re-conceived the Savior or vegetation god for a new season. The Christian festival wasn’t called ‘Easter’ until the Goddess’s name was given to it in the late Middle Ages.” – The Woman’s Encyclopedia of Myths and Secrets by Barbara G. Walker

Today, I’ve provided the origins of many of the symbols and sacred objects associated with Easter. The entry on “eggs” is excerpted from The Woman’s Encyclopedia of Myths and Secrets by Barbara G. Walker. The remaining entries are copied from another work by Barbara Walker, The Woman’s Dictionary of Symbols and Sacred Objects.

Bunny-Eggs

Eggs

Eggs were always symbols of rebirth, which is why Easter eggs were usually colored red – the life-color – especially in Eastern Europe. Russians used to lay red Easter eggs on graves to serve as resurrection charms.

In Bohemia, Christ was duly honored on Easter Sunday and his pagan rival on Eastern Monday, which was the Moon-day opposed to the Sun-day. Village girls like ancient priestesses sacrificed the Lord of Death and threw him into the water, singing, “Death swims in the water, spring comes to visit us, with eggs that are red, with yellow pancakes, we carried Death out of the village, we are carrying Summer into the village.”

Hare

The Easter Bunny began with the pagan festival of the springtime Goddess Eostre, when it was said that the Goddess’s totem, the Moon-hare, would lay eggs for good children to eat. The Easter Bunny still brings eggs to children, though they are now made of chocolate and sugar instead of more nourishing ingredients. Eostre’s hare was the shape that Celts imaged on the surface of the full moon, derived from old Indo-European sources. In Sanskrit, the moon was cacin, “that which is marked with the Hare.” Queen Boadicea’s banners displayed the Moon-hare as a sacred sign. Both hares and cats were designated the familiars of witches in Scotland, where the word malkin or mawkin was applied to both.

Timothy Glenn ~ Uranus Square Pluto Part Five: A Grand Cross to Bear

My friend, astrologer Timothy Glenn, returns with a spirited update on the next Uranus Square Pluto — the fifth in a series of seven. Reading this article reminded me of his Heliocentric Square piece about the significance of November 23, 2013. Light bulb! I have been saying for months that I was never so glad to finish a month as I was to get through November 2013. I had completely forgotten about that as an astrological hinge point. No wonder I’ve felt like coasting downhill since that month ended.

Anyway, back to April 2014, which most Earth-centric astrologers have pegged as hugely significant. Indeed, we have loads of energies influencing us right now! I always enjoy how Tim describes planetary actions like a great big, crazy family and friends reunion. What will Uncle Jupiter do next?! Will Uranus and Jupiter gang up on Mars? Tim’s wonderful humor and wisdom put these wild energies into perspective. Enjoy the ride!

Uranus Square Pluto Part Five
A Grand Cross to Bear

By Timothy Glenn

The most powerful astrological influence of our time takes quite a bit of time, which contributes to its influence being so powerful. Even here in the heart of this transit (the seven exact squares of the planets of evolution and revolution) more than two and a half years elapse. The first exact square of Uranus to Pluto occurred on June 24, 2012. The seventh will put the cap on the process on March 16, 2015.

The earlier articles in this series harkened back to the imagery and energy of the Sixties, when Uranus and Pluto formed their conjunction. Whatever is birthed at the conjunction is called into action and put to the test at the square, and now is the time. The universe is throwing the gauntlet before humanity: “Remember all that wonderful idealism of the Sixties? Did you really mean all that? Show us.”

But we are not going back to the Sixties. In November of 2013 we crossed the midway mark with the fourth of the seven exact squares, in addition to the one and only Heliocentric Square. So now the Sixties nostalgia can fade into the background as we move forward into the mysterious future we are busily co-creating.

Friends Join the Party

At their Heliocentric square last November, Uranus and Pluto received amplification and blessing from the ever popular Jupiter, who opposed Pluto and squared Uranus in a T-square. We might regard the Heliocentric square as the most significant of all. It only happens once and is seen from the perspective of the Sun, and therefore sets the tone for the entire phenomenon at the level of the whole solar system. Earth is not playing solitaire any more than the rest of us are. We are playing a game of co-creation.

Not by coincidence, for the fifth exact square from our geocentric perspective, Jupiter will form an even tighter T-square with Uranus and Pluto. This will provide massive stimulation for us, but Mars retrograde in Libra will turn the T-square into a Cardinal Grand Cross. And then the Moon gets into the action by crossing over Pluto.

Even though the fifth exact Uranus/Pluto square happens on April 21st, the overall adventure of the Cardinal Grand Cross will span April 20th through 22nd with a total of ten exact aspects. The festivities will commence with Uncle Jupiter exactly squaring revolutionary Uranus. The Moon will then trigger the energies of the Grand Cross. It will conjunct Pluto, square Uranus, oppose Jupiter and square Mars within an hour and a half. Let the games begin.

Jupiter will proceed to oppose Pluto, setting the stage for the fifth exact square of Uranus to Pluto on the 21st. Mars will close the ceremonies on the 22nd by squaring Jupiter, opposing Uranus and finally squaring Pluto.

Your Mission, Should You Choose to Accept It…

If this fails to stimulate you, there is a chance you may be dead. Ask your doctor. The Cardinal Grand Cross first reaches culmination on Easter Sunday, so maybe you could get resurrected. Ask your minister.

None of the planets involved here are known for placidity. The intensity might have been lower if Pluto had formed a Grand Cross with Venus, Saturn and Neptune. But the universe is obviously telling us to buck up and do whatever we incarnated on Planet Earth to do.

Squares demand action. If we take appropriate action, squares will help us. On the other hand, if we refuse to take action, the planets involved will most likely kick our asses from one end of the solar system to the other. Perhaps in less intense times, people could get away with dumbing down, numbing out, and burying their heads a little deeper in the sand. But a foursquare demand from the likes of Pluto, Uranus, Jupiter and Mars at an extremely critical pass in our history will diminish the chances of successfully dodging the call to the Quest. Couch potatoes, beware.

What – me worry?

Although the doomers and gloomers point at Mars and fear the world bursting into flames, we have choice. We are playing a game of consciousness; a game of creating our own reality. Planetary influences aside, nothing overshadows the power of our creative power as Divine Beings.

Here is a thumbnail sketch of how the “Powers That Would Be” operate. They lie, distort and spin their propaganda to elicit fear, and more significantly, belief in that fear. Although these falsehoods pile up into the sky and send their stench into the heavens, this looks like nothing compared to the corporate propaganda machine’s chief weapon: the Almighty Omission. The humans who watch what they think is “the news”, especially in the Anglosphere, are blocked from pertinent facts and thus duped into feeding their own creative power into helping the global manipulators manifest wars and whatever else. Where thought goes, energy flows.

An awakened humanity will not be so duped. Ignorance and credulity are not recommended, but rather the ability to see the machinations of the so-called Dark Side and the possible manifestations, but not to get suckered into the mass hysteria they try to generate, and to channel our creative consciousness into more resonant outcomes.

Let It Be

The Uranus/Pluto square serves as a massive wake-up call, and the Cardinal Grand Cross of April 2014 cranks up the volume on the public address system.

To the degree that you are currently manifesting as a direct expression of The Infinite, how can you maintain your poise in the midst of global madness? Perhaps you could look at the old system and see it as a dragon in the throes of death. Understanding that within the context of this alleged “reality”, the dragon is most dangerous in the throes of death, perhaps you could exercise the faith that your Spirit can guide you to avoid the thrashing tail and the occasional spurts of flame. You can understand that the dragon of the old world is dying as you wend your way into the New Earth. You can bless the illusory dragon and let it be.

This principle can be widely applied. If you fight it, you feed it. And yet there may be times your Spirit will move you to take an action that looks political, since there are no rules. It may be as simple as looking a corrupt government straight in the eye and using some of their old advice: Just Say No. But for the most part, we can forgive it, let it go, and let it be.

The World Is As You Dream It

Everything in astrology can be interpreted in a variety of ways. Let’s play with a few perspectives on facets of the Cardinal Grand Cross.

Pluto rules the underworld and all things hidden. Capricorn involves everything to do with the public. So Pluto in Capricorn brings deep dark hidden secrets out into the public eye. This can help Uranus with his job of awakening the slumbering bumblers.

Even though the energies of Mars have often been manipulated into warfare, Mars is currently running retrograde, and thus more difficult to use for triggering conflagration. He is also in Libra, which further mitigates the martial tendencies.

Mars is also opposed by Uranus occupying the sign ruled by Mars, and who is telling Mars to direct his efforts into a mass awakening to freedom for the world. At the same time, Uncle Jupiter in Cancer is squaring Mars and saying, “Not on my watch, buddy.”

Uncle Jupiter in Cancer will not be outdone, so the love of the human family can stand firm in the face of the Plutocracy of the old Capricornian system.

The Cardinal Grand Cross does not need to represent planets opposing each other as in contending, arguing or fighting. Opposite signs complement each other. The four squares can also be seen as laying the foundation for the New Earth. All four planets can be co-creatively supporting each other. You decide.

Playing God = God Playing

The fifth exact square of Uranus to Pluto falls on April 21, 2014. 4 + 21 = 25. 2014 = 2 + 0 + 1 + 4 = 7. 25 + 7 = 32. July 4, 1776 also adds up to 32, the number of liberation.

The 32 can look King George directly in the eye and say, “King George, we know you rule the British Empire, and that the British Empire is growing to encompass a quarter of the landmass of the globe. We know your navies rule the seven seas, and that the sun never sets on the British Empire. But – as far as we are concerned, you can take your empire and shove where the sun never shines at all.”

This compelling call to freedom can challenge our very concept of freedom itself. From the Proterrian channelings: “If you are stuck in one embodiment, you are not free. If you are stuck in one world, you are not free. If you are stuck in one dimension, you are not free. Thou art God. Now act like it!”

Anyone with at least one eye partially open will notice the effects of this fifth exact geocentric square of Uranus and Pluto, especially as the centerpiece of the Cardinal Grand Cross which is in turn sandwiched between two notable eclipses. The real awakening is to our own Divinity. You are an expression of the Infinitude. Nothing else exists. Otherwise, we would call it the Infinitude Plus Everything Else That Exists.

It sometimes helps to view this world as a virtual reality computer game. The Infinitude is playing the part of You, no matter who or what you think you are within the context of the game. You can awaken the Infinite within you and play the game accordingly.

Maybe at this stage of the scenario, God would hack into the mainframe of The Matrix and start reprogramming the game. And since we are all God, we could start our careers as Divine Hackers by making one particular adjustment to the nature of the game. Let’s make it love-based instead of fear-based. And if we have trouble transcending the old interpretations of conflicting energies in a Cardinal Grand Cross, we can remember the old adage, “Love conquers all.”

Precious Moments

The way to recognize the precious moments, is to become so still, as to feel the pure life energy move through you, be present, have an open heart of loving gratitude, and breathe into each moment with awareness and curiosity.

You will come to know what it is like to touch that preciousness inside and you’ll begin to realize that EVERY moment is a thread in the fabric of that preciousness, and is valuable beyond measure – not just the ones you deem worthy.

Thomas Lifson ~ Nightmare: Feds Seizing Money from Children for Old Debts of Their Parents

Wow, I bet you didn’t know this was in the Farm Bill, too! You know, the Farm Bill, the one that makes it illegal for organic farmers to use compost or manure due to “safety” concerns, but gives confined animal feeding operations (CAFO’s) a free pass. Yeah, that Farm Bill. Well, lookie what else snuck in there. Thanks, G. This sort of corruption is among the many reasons that all my tax payments get specially “blessed” before mailing — with magical instructions to root out abuses, dismantle corruption and for that money to benefit organic farmers rather than big banks or ammo purchases for a government that labels organic gardeners as probable terrorists.

Nightmare: Feds Seizing Money from Children for Old Debts of Their Parents
By Thomas Lifson

In a case that is a perfect storm illustration of an arbitrary and incompetent federal government running roughshod over its citizens, “a single sentence tucked into the farm bill” had led to outrageous behavior. Marc Fisher of the Washington Post:

A few weeks ago, with no notice, the U.S. government intercepted Mary Grice’s tax refunds from both the IRS and the state of Maryland. Grice had no idea that Uncle Sam had seized her money until some days later, when she got a letter saying that her refund had gone to satisfy an old debt to the government — a very old debt.

When Grice was 4, back in 1960, her father died, leaving her mother with five children to raise. Until the kids turned 18, Sadie Grice got survivor benefits from Social Security to help feed and clothe them.

Now, Social Security claims it overpaid someone in the Grice family — it’s not sure who — in 1977. After 37 years of silence, four years after Sadie Grice died, the government is coming after her daughter. Why the feds chose to take Mary’s money, rather than her surviving siblings’, is a mystery.

Mary Grice is just unlucky, I guess. The feds want some money, and her name popped up, not those of her siblings. Tough luck when you get on the wrong side of the government. Her plight is not unique:

Across the nation, hundreds of thousands of taxpayers who are expecting refunds this month are instead getting letters like the one Grice got, informing them that because of a debt they never knew about — often a debt incurred by their parents — the government has confiscated their check.

The Treasury Department has intercepted $1.9 billion in tax refunds already this year — $75 million of that on debts delinquent for more than 10 years….

The feds are making up their own rules, and justice or personal responsibility are less important than the convenience of the bureaucrats:

Social Security officials told Grice that six people — Grice, her four siblings and her father’s first wife, whom she never knew — had received benefits under her father’s account. The government doesn’t look into exactly who got the overpayment; the policy is to seek compensation from the oldest sibling and work down through the family until the debt is paid.

The Federal Trade Commission, on its Web site, advises Americans that “family members typically are not obligated to pay the debts of a deceased relative from their own assets.” But Social Security officials say that if children indirectly received assistance from public dollars paid to a parent, the children’s money can be taken, no matter how long ago any overpayment occurred.

It doesn’t even matter if the parents took the money and went on a bender, the kids are stuck with the bill, on the theory that they should have received the benefit and it would be too complicated for the bureaucrats if they had to actually, you know, prove that they had benefitted even as an infant. The most important thing, after all, is that the government get the money it wants.

Will anyone in the GOP wake up and start a crusade against this obvious government run amok travesty? Of course, how many of them voted for the “farm bill”?

Excellent fact check and perspective on Bundy Ranch Drama

laurabruno:

Complete with cached screen shots from the Way Back Machine, this video cuts through the BS. Yes, it’s about the federal government using environmental claims to grab land for corporate deals, but apparently, in this particular instance, it’s not about fracking. My apologies for linking to the article that said it was. Having lived in NV, I do know NV geography and should have caught that. On the other hand, this overall pattern of corporations and NGO’s using government agencies to grab land is far too common. From Mesoamerica all throughout the US, in small towns, on farms, out West … the individual corporate logos and political faces may change, but the pattern remains consistent. I like how this narrator connects the mistreatment of the Occupy Movement and the Bundy situation, reminding us of the false left-right divide. Yes, I’ve read that the Koch Bros. are fighting Harry Reid as usual … but remember the Bankers Manifesto of 1892. In the staged battle of left and right, there’s one intended loser: We the People. Whether black, white, Dem, Rep, Tea Party or hippie, we need to look at patterns as the overall agenda marches on behind media’s smoke and mirrors.

From my notes:

Remember when nobody stood up when Occupy was crushed? Well, that didn’t happen this time. The sleeping giant is starting to wake up.

I want to add here, that despite my personal pacifist stance, what happened in Nevada between April 10 and April 13 2014 demonstrates the power of the argument to not institute gun control in this country. Back in 1979, I got involved for a short while with a western cowboy/military vet who’d tell me that “if they take away our guns then only the government will have guns.” I thought he was alarmist. No longer. The only reason the BLM backed off under that I-15 overpass on Sunday morning was because they knew those coming at them were also armed, and that if they did shoot, they were outnumbered. 

Remember, we are the 99%, and we vastly outnumber those who would enslave us.

Relationship Balancing – Total Lunar Eclipse Libra Blood Moon April 15, 2014

laurabruno:

Insights and a beautiful sharing from sweet Tania Marie…. I am sooo feeling these energies right now, and I know from emails and emergency sessions that many of you are, too. Relationships, self-conception, ideas of where and where not to invest our energies, liberation as we let go of what no longer wants our input … these themes and more mark the potent Full (Blood) Moon Lunar Eclipse tonight/tomorrow, depending on your location. Blessings and relief to you …

blood moonWe are feeling the influences and heightened climax of the total lunar eclipse that will be in fullness on the edge of the eve of April 14th, as the 15th chimes in, turning the Moon crimson – or blood red.

Along with so many energetic influences right now, this just increases the potential intensities, along with the major catapulting potentials.

There’s also a lot of twists and turns happening and surprising new flips to change the course of the direction you may have thought you were going, into a completely different, yet welcome and liberating one.

I know that’s been the case for me, as well as for others I’ve been hearing from, and while I had felt a bit of an energetic build up and anxiety, on and off the last few days, it suddenly released today with freshness and a mirroring gift to reflect the new.

When All Else Fails …

Keep Calm and Fairy On

Haha, thanks, Raven! Perfect timing. :)

Julian Rose ~ The World Is Our Garden — Defend It Or Lose It

Another inspiring and insightful offering from Julian Rose:

The World Is Our Garden – Defend It or Lose It

By Julian Rose

When we walk into a carefully nurtured and diverse garden, we are struck by its beauty and its sense of completeness. We are enraptured by its scents and its mysteries. We are enlivened by its colours, both vivid and subtle, and we are nourished by the freshness that fills our lungs.

Altogether, the majority of sentient beings will surely concur, this garden is a most agreeable place to be – and should someone emerge who threatens to desecrate this sacred space – the reaction will be to jump to its defence and protect it against such a criminal action.

So let us consider the fact that many a wise person and many a spiritual leader has felt impelled to point out that “The World Is Our Garden” and that it should therefore be tended, nurtured and defended in the same way as the private space in which we grow our flowers, fruits, vegetables and herbs. Emotionally, we should make no distinction between these micro and macro spheres.

Yet look around today and what do we see?

Certainly there are many mortals tending their individual gardens, and many more with no physical garden to tend. But amongst of all these, just a tiny minority can be found who are willing to go out of their way to stand-up for that greater garden called planet Earth.

Even amongst those who would class themselves as ‘aware’ and advancing along the path of spiritual enlightenment, one finds too few ready and willing to actively defend the greater whole in the same spirit as they readily defend and tend their ‘own’ private space. Be that space the place where one cultivates one’s spiritual growth – or the physical space that is one’s own garden.

The act of ‘ownership’ appears to have overridden and nullified our ability to feel and apply a sense of innate responsibility for that which we don’t ‘own’.

The neo-liberal capitalist/consumerist conditioning that forms a major part of nearly all our educations – has not taught us to feel responsible for all life – but only that part in which we have invested our personal interest and financial resources.

We need reminding that we are the collective trustees of this unique living entity that sustains and provides us with all our needs for the duration of our lives – and beyond.

Let us question our supposed ‘spirituality’ in the light of our unwillingness to lay ourselves on the line to fight for the survival of that which enables us to eat, drink, breathe and take pleasure in its abundant generosity.

You see, if we had been entrained from an early age to respond spontaneously to the life giving heart beat of our planetary existence, we would make no distinction between empathy for the garden of Gaia and empathy for our own private garden. Empathy for all children and empathy for our own children .. and so on.

We would recognize that the manifestation of our protective instinct to operate only around that which we consider ‘belongs to us’ is a gross distortion of our natural instincts.

Why do I say that?

Consider for a moment that you are sitting in your garden and someone comes through the gate with a chain-saw and proceeds to set about felling your favourite fruit tree … what would you do?

Well, you would almost certainly spring up from your chair and rush to stop them. Now let us shift to a similar incident where a beautiful tree in a park on the other side of your garden fence is indiscriminately approached by a man wielding a chain saw who clearly has no business to be there. It is clear that this person has the intention of cutting down this tree … what would your reaction be to this? Would you try to apprehend this person? Try to find help? Feel a sense of outrage?

There is a chance that you might respond in all these ways; but there is a much greater likelihood that, after experiencing some initial discomfort at the brazenness of this destructive intent, you would take no action, consoling yourself with the thought “There’s nothing I can do about it anyway”. With that thought uppermost in your mind you would try to ignore the incident and get on with what you were doing.

If our education system had even a smidgeon of spiritual aspiration written into its curriculum – we would be encouraged to recognize our responsibility for all life on this planet from an early age – and be encouraged to come to its rescue at times when it is clearly under threat.

But that is not what the majority of schooling is about. On the contrary, it concentrates its energies on teaching us how to acquire the means to ‘own’ some little niche of this planet, and to accumulate the thousands of bits and pieces that are deemed necessary to furnish it. God forbid that we might decide to reject the trappings of this hallowed road to hell!

Every TV advert, commercial hoarding, glitzy magazine, shop window, internet and cinema screen – is imploring us to indulge in a consumptive way of life that both precludes gaining a greater awareness of our predicament, and contributes to the inevitable rape of the planetary resources upon which we all depend.

The rising consciousness that comes with our spiritual practice also has the affect of alerting us to the destructive nature of this consumptive life style and the majority of jobs that constitute the repetitive and largely sterile working week.

We see more and more clearly how, if we are caught in this mechanism, we are just a cog in a vast machine whose overall ambition is precisely the opposite of that which inspires our spiritual endeavours.

It soon becomes obvious that we have to make a choice: find a form of work that satisfies our rising sense of discernment and is supportive of the trusteeship of planet earth, or give-in to the demands and promises of the corporate state that so relentlessly undermines all that is subtle, beautiful and spiritually fulfilling in this day to day adventure called Life.

The new society so many of us long for can only come about if we take the necessary actions to bring it about. One cannot embark upon a path to higher consciousness while ignoring the damage done through the way one conducts one’s daily life. In order to realise our deeper selves and sleeping spiritual powers, we have to bring all aspects of our lives into line with our rising consciousness.

This means embarking upon a disciplined transition away from reliance upon the crude and destructive commercial edifices of the status quo – such as long food mile, profit hungry supermarket chains; highly corrupted large scale banking institutions; agrichemically and genetically modified ‘convenience’ foods; unnecessarily large gas guzzling cars; mind numbing and mind controlling TV programmes; following ‘fashion’; frequent boozing and partying; electro smog producing indulgent cell phone conversations … and so on.

Not only are these various pursuits negatively impacting on us and on our surroundings – but by pursuing them we are financially and energetically supporting those facets of society whose sole aim is profit, power and increasing control over our daily lives. In other words we are supporting that which is part and parcel of the uninterrupted destruction of this ‘world that is our garden’.

This is clearly a thoroughly unspiritual path to tread.

We are either supporting a radical transformation of society in line with our own rising awareness of its multiple destructive components, or we are falling into a hypocritical and delusional state in which any gain in awareness is soon undone and turned in upon itself.

We have no choice other than to walk forward on two feet. To ‘walk the walk’ and to practice what we preach.

It is my belief that we will succeed in this great quest once we have securely tethered our inner awakening to the manifestation of its true outward expression.

Thus the road to enlightenment becomes synonymous with taking actions to ameliorate and heal the social, cultural, economic and environmental scars that cover our wounded planet. A process which unifies otherwise disparate endeavours and reveals disengaged, inward looking and passive spiritual practices – that shun active participation in service of the planet – to be ultimately fraudulent and a mechanism for escapism.

If ‘The World is our garden’ then let us be united now in going to rescue it from its enemies – no matter what the odds. Let us defy the political gamesmanship that has lead governments to ally with the corporate cause and ignore the cries of imprisoned humanity and the tortured limbs of mother nature.

Our highest spiritual calling is to come out in defence of life.* The angels will rush to our side once we have demonstrated our commitment to taking control of our destinies, which includes the emancipation of this long oppressed planet which is our unique and irreplaceable home.

Cardinal Grand Cross Insights ~ Liberating Potentials from Facing Denied Darkness

laurabruno:

Good info on Tania’s blog, along with the click-throughs. I see this playing out not only on the larger stage in Nevada, but also in individuals as some experience major die-off symptoms of old illnesses or previous limitations. Intense, yes! But this same intensity offers enormous potential for real, lasting change. Every time we get one of these loaded astrological moments, those tensions add extra catapulting force to clear intentions. May we all hold fast to the belief in something better and keep our aim on that better feeling as we fly. Blessings, wisdom, and courage to all….

I always prefer the perspective of opportunities, presented from any given experience, rather than focus on the limitations.

With the upcoming Cardinal Grand Cross and Total Lunar Eclipse, which we have been experiencing over the months, and will continue to be prevalent, many speculate as to the effects on what this all means.

As always, go into your own heart space and find the answers to how you would like to work with the energy, but there is the potential for some majorly impactful and long-awaited changes that can manifest from your willingness to go to the heart and core of what really matters, and work with all aspects of yourself – especially the fears and shadows.

If you can see through the surface illusions of what the fears are actually, invaluably…
