There are three main themes concerning virginity that have obsessed human beings for millennia. One is whether or not a woman is a virgin when she is ready to marry. The second has to do with the virginity of certain goddesses like Artemis and Mary mother of Jesus, and the other is the whole question of virgin birth of great saints like Osiris, Jesus, and Buddha. In this article we will touch on all three. We will concentrate on virginity as it applies to women even though males can be virgins too. This is because historically the social importance is placed on female virginity and not so much on whether a male is one even though a male may have feelings about whether he is one or not.
Full Moon with a total Lunar Eclipse is Wednesday, October 8th at 4:50 AM MDT (mountain daylight time).
This is truly an intense and possibly highly emotional time that will trigger and push everything to the edge and beyond. Instead of retreating or freezing up in fear and terror, go out and become part of the storm. Harness the tremendous energy that has the potential to feed your creativity and dreams in ways you could never have imagined.
The main theme for October is “THE THREE-LEGGED STOOL”.
October is a balancing act. The image is of watching a circus act from a place of terror and excitement and then feeling both relieved and exhilarated when the act is successfully completed. This month pushes the edge of everything, forcing expansion, new strategies for balance and a necessary letting go of what really does not work.
The Autumn Equinox is exact on Monday, September 22 at 8:59PM MDT.
Pluto also goes direct on this day. The Equinox is always a great time to RESET and to honor endings so that you can make room for new beginnings. The endings or completions are especially important during this season and especially in light of changes that may be occurring in your life. Acknowledge the changes and honor the endings that are coming about because of them.
It is always important to mark the equinox through a ritual of some kind. You can honor your endings through a burning or burial of a representation of them. Follow this with writing intentions for something new.
The New Moon is Wednesday, September 24 at 12:13 AM MDT (or the night of the 23rd).
Since this new moon is right on the heels of the Autumn Equinox, the same suggestions apply and you can honor both the new moon and the equinox at the same time.
One of the most deep rooted and ancient tendencies human beings indulge in is the urge to take revenge against those that have caused them pain. This urge has a huge range and includes everything from an automatic reaction to hit back and a conscious premeditated plan of vengeful action. If you look closely at your life you will find incidents when you felt this urge and most likely took action, perhaps when you were a child or even more recently where it snuck up on you. Even older souls will find that the urge to take revenge sneaks up on them such as badmouthing someone who has been hurtful to them.
Full Moon is Monday, September 8 at 7:38 PM MDT.
Celebrate a change in your life. Even if it is a challenging one and you are struggling with accepting it, celebrate it anyway. This is a time to embrace change and use its power to expand yourself into new territory. It is also a good day to anchor the beginning of a new project, a routine or a relationship, OR the beginning of a new phase in a project, routine or relationship. Celebrate it.
The theme for September is CHANGE.
The change also comes with a RESET and a chance to do things in your life very differently. Whether you are the one making a choice or it is a choice or situation from the outside that affects you, CHANGE is inevitable. This month we will explore how to deal with CHANGE in a positive and proactive way so you can use it to RESET your life in the best way possible.
New Moon is Monday, August 25 at 8:12 AM MDT (Mountain daylight time).
We are moving towards more clarity and organization and a renewed energy to get back to tasks that were put on hold for various reasons. This is a great time especially to honor the clarity and commitment around endings and beginnings.
You already know all this. Sometimes you might forget. Here is a reminder. The best part is at the end.
Among nations of the world, more than most, Americans are obsessed with freedom. “I got rights.” “This is a free country.” “Nobody’s going to tell me what I can do or what I can’t do.” “This is my land and I can do with it what I want” etc. Now, freedom is a beautiful and wonderful thing and it is what we all want as human beings. Ultimately it is the optimal state of affairs and most of us would rather live with more freedoms than less. However freedom as it turns out is a very complex issue that the United States Supreme Court is constantly pressed to sort out for the country. The big complication is numbers of people. If you are the only one living for a hundred miles around then obviously you can do pretty much what you want but when you live in a city of millions of people freedom becomes a matter of consensus.
Full Moon is Sunday, August 10 at 12:09 PM MDT (Mountain Daylight Time)
Work with the sun on this day. With conscious focus bring that energy into yourself and embrace the fullness of the masculine and all its qualities. Be receptive to any shifting or healing or clearing of any old patterns around the negative masculine that is possible for you at this time.
