Say my name so I’ll not be forgotten….. Halloween, Samhain, Hallowmas then All Souls’ Day

A gift to my parents on their wedding day that hangs in my office.

Say my name so I’ll not be forgotten…..

As the Wheel Turns, we come into the time of Halloween, Samhain, Hallowmas then All Souls’ Day and honor our Ancestors.   The Elders are many; our ancestors, the wisdom keepers, our inner wise one, those that give counsel and pass it on to those who seek them out.  They are the Healers of old and can come through as ancestors or guides.  They can slip between the worlds transforming inner reality into outer reality and remind us we can too.  The ask us, what do you want, what is your dream, and vision?  What’s holding you back.  What are you willing to give up for something greater, a bigger vision?  What wants to be healed?  What would you do if you tapped into and trusted your own wisdom?

The Wheel, in Tarot signifies change in our lives.  We are now moving into a new season, but also other changes are coming.  We can feel them!  When we live close to the seasons and cycles in life, nature assists us through this transformation.  Our European sister the Baba Yaga and Hecate, the Greek Goddess of the Crossroads.  I deeply connect with her, Mother Mary and Archangel Azrael as in my practice, one of my specialties is working with those going through transitions of all kinds, metaphorical crossroads.  Crossroads are places of power.  In the physical it can be It can be any three-way crossroad. It’s a place where we can give an offering of gratitude, or petition, prayer.

At this time of the year the veil is thin, a time when we celebrate and honor our ancestors.   There are many ways we can do this.  By changing up our alters or an area where we can have pictures of our loved ones,  friends, pets and adding things around it that  they loved in life, along with candles, and flowers.  There may have been a poem or story they loved that we can read aloud.  You can record in your journal any messages you receive from those that have passed ones, those that come in our dreams or sychronictistic experiences.  Reciting prayers using beads, a rosary, and malas are gifts to our ancestors given from us through this liminal time.  The practice and repetition of saying a mantra or prayer shifts our energy into one of peace.  You can craft prayer cards with a picture of your loved one. 

As we begin to celebrate All Souls’ Day, many people have remembrances in their home of those who have made their transition and visit their family and friends in a cemetery at this time, light a candle on the grave and bring flowers.  I prepare my family grave at this time each year with flowers and decorations as it’s also my father’s birthday.  You may not live close or are unable to visit your families resting place but you can visit a cemetery close to you. I have participated in cemetery walks on or around All Souls’ Day.  Some of the graves are so old that there may not be any relatives or friends left to visit them.  So saying their name aloud, they may not have heard it spoken in awhile, they will know they are remembered and not forgotten.  Another idea is to make small soul cakes to take with you to leave at the graves.  A soul cake is a small round cake or muffin which is traditionally made for this day to celebrate the dead.  Originally they were made with whatever grain the community had available. The cakes, often simply referred to as souls, were given out to soulers, children and the poor who would go from door to door  singing and saying prayers for the dead.  The 60?s folk group Peter Paul and Mary recorded a song based on an old rhyme for soul cakes, called “A’ Soalin”. 

Día De Los Muertos is another festival celebrated in many parts of the World, in Mexico, and in the United States, particularly where there are large Latin American communities. Day of the Dead events, which come in the form of festivals, parades and group celebrations, are held on November 1st to the 2nd  to coincide with All Souls’ and Saints’ Day.   During these celebrations some people wear masks, create beautiful decorations to honor the dead. Some community centers invite people to commemorate their deceased loved ones with offerings that include food, symbols, flowers, candles, photos and other mementos. Altars in memory of the dead are also made in people’s homes.  The skull, is decorated used in celebrations which symbolizes death and rebirth. A traditional flower associated with the dead is the Marigold.  It has been said that  the Marigold represents the rays of the sun, which is about life, so the deceased have not lost their place in the Universe.

So as the wheel turns, notice the changes both in our outside world and how it’s reflected inside us, how we move and flow with the seasons.  When we are in sync, we will feel more of a connection with everything and find more ease, grace, and joy in our lives.  What plans do you have as the Wheel turns?  What questions are coming up for you during this liminal time.  You don’t have to rush, you have the time, and you have the answer and it may just come from an ancestor or guide.

“Walking, I am listening to a deeper way.

Suddenly all my ancestors are behind me.

Be still, they say. Watch and listen.

You are the result of the love of thousands.”– Linda Hogan

Bright Blessings!

Cheers Moonbeams, Tonight The Moon Dance Begins….

moondance

Cheers Moonbeams, Happy Full Moon in Aries!  Wear something bright and joyful today; be alive!  For tonight the moon dance begins!

“Well, it’s a marvelous night for a moondance with the stars up above in your eyes.  A fantabulous night to make romance ‘Neath the cover of October skies. And all the leaves on the trees are falling… – Moondance by Van Morrison

The Full Moon at 20 degrees Aries rises tonight!  Aries motto is “I Am”.  Wear something bright that expresses your passion for life today.  Play!  Celebrate what has been accomplished during this lunation; and the steps that have been taken.  Release what holds you back from your joy; be transformed! 

With the Aries Full Moon and Sun in Libra, (Libra’s motto is “I Balance”)  find that compromise in relationships, that sweet spot.    You might feel a tug-a-pull today as the Aries Full Moon can be passionate but also headstrong and is a big personality.  Libra is the charming diplomat.  At 20 degrees the 2’s in this equation; choosing compromise and balance while following your inner Aries moonlight!

“Follow your inner moonlight; don’t hide the madness.”  Allen Ginsberg

Bright Blessings Moonbeams – It’s Time To Make Your New Moon Wishes!

NewMoonBlessings
Brightest Blessings Moonbeams on our Virgo New Moon!  It’s time to make our New Moon wishes and intentions. Our card for the New Moon is Divine Mystery, Archangel Raziel, Keeper of the Mysteries and Celestial Secrets. Embrace the mystery, walk the path of the initiate.

Our crystal guides for this New Moon are: Larimar and Rhodonite. Larimar connects us to the energy to the Sea Goddess, the Divine Feminine, and Mermaids. Affirmation: Sing your siren song.
Rhodonite, rose red with black traces of earth, grounds and helps us to remember our gifts and offer them in service. Affirmation: I remember and recover the lost pieces of myself.

Virgo is a cosmic doer, loves to plan and organize; her energy is perfect for our New Moon! The Virgo Moon and Sun can help make it so.  Her element is mutable earth.

Virgo the Goddess, like Demeter, who presides over the Eleusinian Mysteries, is the goddess of the harvest, cycles of life; She of the Grain, wisdom and rebirth.
Mary, mother of Jesus, is a universal representation of Virgo the Virgin. Her name in Sanskrit, Maya means ocean and the Latin Mare means sea.
Virgo whispers, how can you make the most of the opportunities given to you during this lunation and what can you share with others?

Card from Ask An Angel, by Toni Carmine Salerno and Carisa Mellado, Blue Angel Publishing

Happy Moon Day and don’t forget to make your New Moon wishes!  Remember you are perfect by being just who you are!

The Sun has moved into Virgo. Happy Birthday Virgo, It’s Your Time To Shine!

Virgo2

Virgo “I seek myself through what I learn.” Alan Oken

Virgo you are the helpers, healers, writers, researchers, and teachers.  Your element is Earth and you’re all about practical matters, resourceful, counseling, and organizing.  Perfectionism is one of your traits so it’s important to have compassion especially for yourself. When your diet is in balance everything flows better for you as Virgo rules our digestive system.  Your ruling planet is Mercury, the winged messenger, which gifts you skills in communication, reading, writing and self expression. 

The Angel often associated with Virgo is Archangel Metatron, who was known as the human prophet Enoch, before he transformed into an Angel. He is the celestial scribe, the recording Angel.  Metatron’s cube is called a Merkaba, which can be used to balance energies around our body, chakras, auras, assisting us heal and clear away negative energies.  Archangel Metatron helps us bend time and space, allowing miracles to occur. 

See where Virgo is in your chart and how you can work with Virgo’s bright star energy.   

Virgo, you bless us with grace, for you are the Goddess of Abundance and the Harvest.

 Bright Blessings,

It’s Leo Season! Happy Birthday Leo, It’s Your Time To Shine!

 

Leo159256726572514_n

It’s Leo Season!  Leo sets the stage for us to create with self expression, he is the great manifestor and as a mentor, inspires us to shine brighter, love more passionately and know that the Universe adores us.  He welcomes the stranger with a great kindness and warmth like he would with a dear friend.  There is a dramatic and magnaminous quality and energy that Leo brings.   

Leo is ruled by the Sun, a fixed sign;  his element is Fire.  Leo rules the heart, spine and upper back. And like the story The Lion King, Leo is often thought of as King, but here he is also the King of the Zodiac.  Leo is proud and noble. Like the Lion in the Wizard of Oz, he is a gentle giant who finds his courage; it was inside himself all along! 

Leo’s Tarot correspondence is the Strength card possessing not only strength and courage but kindness and generosity.  The Strength card is feminine magic; the Feminine Magician with the infinity symbol, call the Lemniscate above her head like her counterpart the Magician.  Here we see the Lady taming the Red Lion or taming the self; the process spirituality alchemy on the path to transformation.  Leo’s influence is also seen in the King of Wands, and his lesson is learning self discipline, controlling appetites and passions. 

 Leo, you glamour us with your light, charisma, generous heart and help us step out on the stage of life under the light of the Sun and Stars!  You invite us to find the enjoyment and deliciousness in life.  Happy Birthday to all those born under this sign; we are blessed to have you as our loyal friend!

Bright Blessings,

Maggie Lukowski
