Happy Full Moon!
The 1st of 2015, since the winter solstice celebrations, this Full Moon is also known as the Wolf Moon. A very special one we have here this year. It’s directly on Sirius in Gemini. The ancient dog star. This is the guide star into the underworld for the Egyptians and many other celestial based ancient societies. Sirius is the brightest star in the sky and believed to be the birth place of the creation gods and goddesses and to humanity. The pyramids and many ancient stories about our stellar origin mainly point to this star. The mystical Dogon traditions are based on Sirius A and its star companions Sirius B & C, looong before modern telescopes even registered it physically in the sky. Traditionally in astrology, Sirius is a very fortunate star! It is the Star of Isis and the Nile River. This star marked the annual flooding and was the start of the ancient Egyptian Calendar. Summer Solstice. Which we are opposite right now. The moon is full when it is 180 from the sun. In these times of rapid change, it is important to remain balanced and open to the positive changes signaled by this super abundant full moon. Gemini is a sign of the mind and changes will be moving quickly for the next 2 weeks, during this Full Moon Cycle. Expand your communications and be thankful for all the talents, gifts, and messages we are intune with right now. Learn to incorporate what you want to develop into your daily routine. Time is flying by and the Year of the Horse has shown us to always be ready to shift. The Year of the Goat is upon us and will bring in a much softer, artistic and compassionate vibration. Emotional healing will widely become a collective need and an important goal to reach for this year. This Full Moon on Sirius, the Dog Star, the Guide, can help steer us in the right direction spiritually.
Anubis, the black jackal, the protector of souls, was also referred to as the Egyptian Wolf. Guarding the doorway to the Afterlife and Rebirth by way of Sirius. He assisted Isis in reviving Osiris and giving birth to Horus the Sun. This star represents the Watchmen of the Heavens, higher consciousness, heaven, hell, and the power from within. Gemini and Sirius are the Messengers. Greek god Hermes, also known as Mercury ruling Gemini is also the medium for souls to the underworld. Mercury will be retrograding soon so get ready to delve deep into your own underworld! The shadow of Mercury Retrograde starts tomorrow! Use this Full Moon and fast approaching mercury retrograde as a way to have deeper communication with our ancestors through words, spells, chants, and libation ceremonies. This full moon calls for a balance of the divine Masculine and Feminine. The Right and Left Brain. Dark Matter and Shadows. The Underworld. Fertile Soil. Black was a symbol of fertility and rebirth to the ancient Egyptians. This full moon will be very therapeutic in facing our fears and mental blockages. Working with black stones for the next few weeks will be extremely beneficial. My favorites are Black Tourmaline, Onyx, Black Obsidian, and Snowflake Obsidian. Use them in meditation and next to you while you sleep. One of my new year’s resolutions is to explore the inner workings of the dream world and meditation more often and will include studying hypnotherapy techniques. Something I already have a strong destiny with in my birth chart and that keeps coming up. There’s no need to be afraid of the dark. Most of the universe is dark matter and has much to teach us.
