The Cosmic Story: Aries/Libra Full Moon 2017

The Sacred Marriage: Equality, Union, Balance

What if we really believed that Mother Earth is alive and responsive to our heart's hope? What if we live in our bodies as the temple of our spirit? What happens when we reunite Spirit and Matter?

These are the questions that the Virgo New Moon brought to our attention. The Virgin unites spirit and matter, soul and body. If we live in that consciousness, can we discern what Mother Earth is trying to tell us?

What happens to our sorrows? Are they drawn up into the sky and transformed into Mother Earth's tears, which can cleanse and nourish us? When we are out of balance, our emotions overwhelm us. Is our collective anguish so great that Mother Earth is responding with floods of rain, winds that tear up and topple our reality, quakes that shake us out of our complacency? Are the fires burning throughout the western US the anger that burns within our hearts at the chaos our leaders are creating? Is Mother Earth responding to our heart's despair that the old order refuses to acknowledge the Spirit in the world?

It's time to decide what we believe. And then live out that belief. Saturn is moving forward through the last 10* of Sagittarius, giving us a final chance to clarify our beliefs. If we truly believe that we are incarnated Spirit, we have to let our Spirit shine out of this temple we've been given. We have to let our body awaken to the fullness of Spirit, so we can enjoy our life and create that heaven on Earth we were sent here to create.

The issue, as Maurice Femandez correctly points out, is whether we'll finally accept that living fully here on Earth is our spiritual initiation. Spirit is not ' out there or up there ', as all our patriarchal religions would have us believe. For the past 2000 years, these patriarchal religions have punished the body and the Earth, believing that our 'rewards in heaven' were more important than living a fully creative and joyful life in the body. It's time to remember that Spirit lives within us and is all around us. This is the basis of Goddess religions and pagan belief and as a ' Pagan-o ', I know that being rooted in the cycles of Earth's year can bring us into relationship with the Earth's spirit.

Our 'flat-earth' belief that only the things we can see are 'real' must go. While fanatical Christians are quick to point out someone they hate as anti-christ, the reality is that our whole corporate culture is ' the anti-Christ ' -- the belief that we are not spiritual beings, that we only need money and physical security in life. That we become 'consumers' rather than Stewards of the Earth. Christ consciousness is suppose to be the goal of Christianity; we are here to acknowledge the Spirit of Mother Earth and to infuse our spirit into the life we live and share.

The Leo Solar Eclipse and the New Birth

The Leo solar eclipse speaks to this necessity ( ANANKE was the primordial goddess ( protogenos ) of necessity, compulsion and inevitability or destiny). The Sabian symbol for the degree of the solar eclipse, 29* Leo, is: A mermaid emerges from the ocean waves ready for rebirth in human form.

A mermaid is a feminine spirit that understands the longings of the heart, living as she does in the ocean of the collective unconscious. Because she has a fish's tail, she is a feeling consciousness that has no 'legs to stand on' in the outer world. This eclipse changes that. Now our inner mermaids are going to have legs to stand on and feet to walk on. She is going to 'incarnate' within each of us if we nurture her.

The Mermaid | by Wally Grom

I've always felt like a mermaid (especially since most of my personal planets are in the 12 th house of the collective unconscious). And I tease my friends, telling them that "Next lifetime, I'm going to the mermaid planet." Anais Nin shared my feelings. "I must be a mermaid...I have no fear of depths and a great fear of shallow living."
