Solar Eclipse by Donna Scheifler

Bear with me! I again have a LOT to share with you!

Back in January you did the math:
2017 =
2 + 0 + 1 + 7 = 10 = 1 + 0 = 1

Those familiar with numerology pointed out that
2017 is a “1” year – a year of new beginnings.
Looking back thus far, does this ring true for you?
It surely does for me! With that in mind…

Just as you find yourself awe-inspired by a sunset, those of us in the U.S. will soon experience another one of nature’s awe-inspiring sights — a solar eclipse. During an eclipse darkness falls and wonder rises.

Right now you’re in an “Eclipse Season” — a PORTAL — between the Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon on Mon, Aug 7th, and the Solar Eclipse/New Moon on Mon, Aug 21st.

Incredible energy shifts are happening in and around you at this moment. If you’re finding yourself unusually tired, get the rest you need. Drink plenty of water

Solar Eclipse 8-21-17 001x

This is the first time the SHADOW of a total solar eclipse will cross the continental U.S., coast-to-coast, since 1918. This particular path only happens once in a century. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that is truly uniting us around one event.

This is one of those collective moments in history when you get to reflect on
Where you are within yourself.
How you connect with the larger society.
How you connect with the cosmos.

It really is a CONNECTION moment. You will stand there looking at the SHADOW of the MOON and go beyond to the SUN. With that alignment you learn a way to align within yourself.

This historic event is so much more than an astronomical happening with millions gathering to witness the brief union of moon and sun.

“Eclipses – from an astrological point of view – are signposts of CHANGE. They bring together opposite archetypes: Sun & Moon / Night & Day / Masculine & Feminine.

Bringing together opposites – over the United States – at this point in history is such a cosmic statement of what we’re dealing with here.

This couldn’t have come at a better time for us to open up and find ways to
Reach out to people that we might have differences with.
Reach inside and bring together the parts of ourselves that we haven’t wanted to look at.

Now is the time to bring the SHADOW into LIGHT in a whole new way of understanding. The significance of the messages that this eclipse is bringing to all of us can’t be overstated.”
~ Donna Woodwell, Astrology Hub

During the days before and after the solar eclipse, it’s a time for healing wounds and relationships – and for re-aligning yourself with love, wisdom and goodness.
Set positive intentions for yourself.
Clear out what no longer serves you. Choose LOVE over FEAR.
Go on a low information diet.
Remember to breathe.
Be gentle with yourself.
Get back to the basics: Get the rest you need. Eat nourishing food.
Get outside in nature. Get the exercise you need.
Connect with people you want to be with.
Build a community that uplifts and empowers you

The San Francisco Bay Area will see a 74% solar eclipse … starting at 9:01am and ending at 11:37am.

Click here for a free resource I’m finding immensely helpful: The Global Eclipse Meditation – Anchor LOVE in your Life. They will offer a meditation just before the Solar Eclipse on Mon, Aug 21st, at 8:30am (PDT).

Events like eclipses invite you to be in AWE of all that’s within and around you.

As a woman 50+, you have so much to offer your family, your community, and your world at this time of great change. But you’re not expected to do it alone. Let me know if I can offer you any needed support at this significant time

Together we are making a difference,

Sacred Space

For the last seven years, we Moon Mothers have gathered for our August full moon ceremony at the Maverick’s Beach labyrinth. Mawu CroppedLast year it was destroyed, all symmetrically placed rocks had been removed.  When I saw the devastation I was appalled and vowed to rebuild it.  With fire energy, I called upon the Moon Mothers for a labyrinth rebuilding work day.  They showed up in force and we rebuilt the sacred labyrinth on the Maverick’s Beach peninsula. 13934708_10153809589073225_7587178658680387372_nThis year it was destroyed again! What? Who? Why would anyone destroy a symmetrically beautiful, meditation labyrinth? How could anyone not see the sacredness of this labyrinth?  When I saw the destruction, I paused and remembered the words of my teacher, Amy Sullivan, “Why do you choose to swim up Stream?”  This time I was not compelled to rebuild. Perhaps the universe was telling me it’s time for a change of venue.  This year we gathered at a sacred hidden labyrinth created by Lars Howlett.

In keeping with Moon Mothers tradition, we began by calling in the energy of the seven direction with the sound of the conch.  Mother Earth01croppedThe gifts from our summer babies set the tone of calmness.

 

Deliberately we walked the sacred labyrinth. Keeping rhythm with our drums, we tapped into Earth’s wisdom. It was as if the labyrinth had become the universal mind, placed upon Mother Earth. As we walked, she silently informed, soothed, and satiated our souls.

Ceremony is a practice inasmuch as medicine is a practice, both are healing.  One of the most powerful effects of full moon ceremony is the self discovery, not found in an ordinary scheduled day.  The ability to be the speaker and the witness at the same time is a common occurrence during circle speak.

Mother Earth

To be truly heard by compassionate woman in a sacred space, ushers in a stong connection, both individually and collectively, to the divine feminine.

Until we meet again, walk bare foot, witness the sunrise, and smell the richness of soil.

Sincerely,  Tamara Trejo

Artemis

Conceived through ancient Goddess mythology, we gave birth to modern rituals.  The unstoppable spirit of the Divine Feminine brings magical energy and wisdom to our Goddess circle.  We are the true legacy of our ancestral Grandmothers, who fearlessly engaged in full moon ritual.

On this first full moon of summer we gathered in the Enchanted Forest, in celebration and ceremony. Within minutes we created a soft sensual palace near the cathedral of trees.

The powerful story of Artemis and her mythological tribe inspired our tribe of enlightened women to engage in rhythmic ritual.  The beats of our drums, tambourines and shakers, sent out primal human vibrations to all the trees in the forest.  In return they released subtle wisdom energy absorbed by the sensitive Moon Mothers. The silent whispers of our ancestral Mothers was clearly heard, as our dance parade galvanized into a waking dream of beauty.

From a magnificent vantage point seen by few, we opened to the feminine energy of the full moon’s light casting through the trees. Deeply connected to Mother Earth, each woman became a clear channel of universal wisdom.  Linking together we transformed into a vessel of wisdom and fluidly moved into the unknown, to celebrate the mysteries of the universe.
