Balance. Life is a rhythm of harmony fluttering through the very essence of our being. Even the beauty of all that is life can find blockages altering the natural flow. Following the turbulence we come to a state of balance allowing for a new path to be created. We continue to ride the tempo of a new beat until another obstacle emerges.

The dust is beginning to settle from the year. All of the clutter and chaos simmers from everything we have accomplished. Libra is helping us regain our sense of balance projecting an inner and outer harmony. What have you discovered along your long and weary path? What blockages or obstacles have you overcome? What do you cherish the most out of every moment you’ve experienced?

Libra allows us to reflect on the wonderful ways we have shown our resiliency and experienced the joys in life.

Our splendid Libra is a cardinal, air sign ruled by Venus. Welcome the trailblazers, the innovators, the creators and inventors of modern day marvels. Your keen eye and pragmatic mindset are wrapped in empathy. We are all utilizing these characteristics in our own unique way for this new moon.

Numerology

Photographer: Unknown Edited by Eternal Waking Beauties
October = 10th month of the year.

19= 1+9= 10

2017= 2+0+1+7= 10

The new moon falls on 10/10/10 or 1/1/1 with an amplified vibration due to being paired with zeros. One represents independence, new beginnings, tenacity, creation, success and manifestation. The number one vibrates with the frequency of the sun. The sun is our masculine ally nourishing our souls with warmth. Beware of getting too hot and becoming conceited, intolerant and aggressive.

We have been on a path this year toward self sufficiency, inner growth, and soul searching for our true passion and purpose. There will be more clarity as we come to the realizations of our truths.

There are three 1’s creating an additional vibration of 3, which is ruled by Jupiter and the number of the Ascended Masters. Jupiter is our planet of luck and prosperity as we expand our circle of consciousness and compassion. The Ascended Masters are those who once lived on earth and ascended due to their level of spiritual awareness and practices. We are being asked to do the same by nourishing our own soul, and spreading that awareness to others even if displayed with a simple act of kindness.

Threes the number of sociability, kindness, positivity, communication, imagination, growth, passion, and manifestation. This is where we are being asked to discover how to become effectively interdependent. We are learning how to work alongside others to create and manifest what is collectively desired to benefit the whole of humanity and the world.

We must learn how to balance our introverted independent nature as we tend to self-care and love and our extroverted independent nature creating connections of kindness and compassion.

For this new moon ceremony, I plan on burning red rose and amber incense (3 of each) to bring love, light and happiness into my life. I have been working on finding contentment with my life and everything I have as a sincere form of gratitude.

With my incense, I will be burning pink and yellow candles (3 of each) to amplify these vibrations of joy and unconditional love. One will be for myself, one for others, and one for the world and universe.

My stones of choice are Rose Quartz for love and yellow calcite for a soothing warmth. My main stone for this particular ceremony is going to be fluorite. Fluorite is able to ground excess mental and emotional energies causing anxiety or nervousness. It also helps cleanse the aura of unwanted ties to others’ energies, and aids in balancing various chakras.

There are a number of colors that fluorite comes in and each correlate with the chakras and their metaphysical properties. Purple fluorite helps open our spiritual connection and enhances our abilities to communicate with various light bodies from the spiritual realm such as Archangels, Ascended Masters, and the Fae. Green aids in healing on all levels getting to the heart of the issue. Blue resonates with our throat, ears and nose which are governed by our throat chakra, which facilitates communication. Blue fluorite is able to soothe and reconcile any communication blockages or issues. Yellow promotes cooperation and group alignment fulfilling our natural need to be social, and beyond that creating positive connections with others.

Happy manifesting Eternal Waking Beauties! Take care of your lovely souls at this time.

Virgo New Moon 2017

virgo new moon 2017

Practical Change

Virgos are our earthy, mutable friends in the zodiac ruled by the planet, Mercury. The earth element contributes to Virgo’s hardworking, dedicated and nurturing nature. They embody our Mother Gaia giving others life from her bountiful abundance. Mutable signs help us shift from one season to the next. This particular transition is a time of extreme preparation for cold, winter months paired with a large collection or harvest of goods accumulated throughout the year. Virgos are excellent organizers, efficient, and resourceful. How do you plan on unwinding your year? What are you securing to ensure a successful winter?

We will be utilizing a vast array of communication styles and thought processes with Mercury as our ruling planet. Communication can be verbal or non-verbal including language, gestures, body postures, eye contact and more. There can also be internal or external forms of communication, where we are interacting with other life (or non-life) forms, or conversing within ourselves creating thoughts. Virgo has a very systematic and pragmatic way of thinking that is reflected in their communication style. Be prepared to take on some of these traits as we begin to logistically dissect the world around us.

Planetary Aspects

There are five major celestial bodies residing with one another in the sign of Virgo. As with all new moons, the masculine sun lovingly embraces the feminine essence of the moon aligning our conscious mind with our subconscious mind. This allows us to clearly see our true desires creating a portal of opportunity as our masculine and feminine essences align within.

Mars enhances our innate sense for survival, and assertive instinct to ascertain what is necessary to live. This becomes a major focus as our reptilian brain hones in on the basics of existence. Because Mars rests in Virgo there will be a very “matter-of-fact” approach on how to achieve these next steps toward our goals.

Venus brings an abundance of love and wealth in its many forms. Love can be shown with a kind word, considerate act, or soft touch, while wealth can be accumulated in the forms of money, health, family and friends among other treasures. Due to Virgo’s nurturing tendencies, we will be asked to express our love to help tend to others utilizing our various constructs of wealth.

Finally, Mercury rests in Virgo as well enhancing our abilities to organize and execute our thoughts and actions with a tenacious fervor.

There are many harsh aspects in the sky causing slight discernment. The sun and moon square Saturn, our planet of boundaries and limitations. This is causing a number of obstacles and difficulties to rise to the surface. It is not that they are new, but we are finally able to analyze them in our conscious mind. Now that we are able to see them clear as day, what is our plan of action to get through the trials and tribulations planted around us? This is where the analytical processing of a Virgo’s mind will come in handy.

Mercury and Mars oppose Neptune, the planet of dreams, spiritual enlightenment, and compassion. This may create a harshness in our thoughts and actions. It is okay to be assertive without being aggressive. We do not want to fully detach our empathetic ways, nor from the innocent acceptance of others.

Luckily, Venus and Saturn trine Uranus, the planet of progression and ingenuity allowing for a surge of  new boundaries created to better facilitate love and values. Mercury and Mars trine Pluto, which was just reassigned the title of planet again! Pluto brings rebirth, renewal, and spiritual growth. These qualities are occurring in our inner and outer forms of communication and our chosen actions and behaviors. These positive aspects will balance out the hurdles we will face.

What’s with the Moose?

I am not sure why the image of a moose came to my partner and then me before writing this article, but it did. When I looked up what the moose totem represented everything clicked into place. A moose is pretty much our Virgo of the animal kingdom. They are strong, independent creatures that are self-reliable and self-sustaining similar to our Virgos. Moose symbolize communication due to their mating calls, wisdom and abundance for their resourceful nature, and transformation with their innate knack at camouflage which is what this new moon is all about!

Moose bring the message of empowerment, integrity, and unseen abilities. They have a heightened sense of sound and smell, and come out of the womb seeing clearly. Moose encourage us to utilize our senses and trust our intuition. It is time to utilize the strength in our power with our given abilities just like our majestic moose.

Ceremony Tools

Any and all cleansing, renewing, and grounding tools will be beneficial during this time. Sandalwood, Frankincense, Myrrh, and rain forest incense, resin, and oils will be excellent for the grounding and mental clarity process. White, green, and brown candles will enhance those energies in your sacred space.

It is time to sharpen or bring clarity to our third eye, and a soft, understanding to our throat chakra. Aphophyllite and Clear Quartz will be beneficial for the third eye to see the truth of the matter. Blue Lace Agate and Blue Kyanite will bring a gentle tenderness and precise format to our communication styles. Blue Chalcedony is going to be my main stone of choice as it brings a non-judgmental acceptance filled with positive beliefs and comforting energies.

Surround yourself in a pearly white light with a soothing, blue lining as you begin to manifest for this lunar cycle. As for assistance from all ethereal bodies from gods to angels to ascended masters to the fae in aiding you to achieve these goals. Take advantage of this time as we are allowed to make great strides at this phase of the moon.

Happy manifesting Eternal Waking Beauties. Stand up for yourself and all those around you as you exude care and compassion from your loving core.

Redefining Humanity

Photographer Unknown

Humanity is supposed to be what sets us apart from all other species. The ability to cognitively process the world and life around us. The capacity for compassion and empathy toward all other life. Yet, we see animals showing more humanity than humans, and inanimate objects processing more than a human mind could possibly fathom.

How have we come to this place? Why are the masses so desensitized? Since when is it cool to not care about life – our own and others? Why is death and the auspicious evils of society glorified?

Everyone wants to blame technology for distancing us from each other, but have we all forgotten the fact that we have the power of choice? We can choose to put the phones down. We can choose to meet face to face. We can choose to say, “Hi!” with a smile on our face to strangers. We can choose to accept others differences. We can choose to volunteer for a good cause. We can choose.

As Americans I feel we easily forget this privilege of choice. Granted not every American has choice since only 30% of the current workforce in the United States works full time. However, we still have a lot more freedoms than most people across the globe.

Today, I saw a line of cars sitting at a red light. The person in front of me, person behind me, and person next to me all rolled their windows up and scowled at the homeless woman and her dog.

When I was younger I used to be fearful of these people. I was terrified they wanted to harm me in one way or another. Now that I am older I realize that a series of misfortune has brought this individual to their lowly state.

No one chooses to be homeless. Some may choose to panhandle versus work a 9-5, but they are usually not homeless. No one wakes up and says, “Fuck this life! I’m just going to walk away from my life, and leave with nothing more than the clothes on my back and create a makeshift home on the side of the road.” If you know of someone who has, please give me their contact information because I would love to pick their brain.

As I looked at this woman, I unrolled my window and handed her an apple. She said, “God bless you” and I responded with “God bless you too” and gave her a genuine smile. I wanted to start a conversation and ask her if she knew there were options and resources out there to help her move out of poverty. However, I did not want to be rude or assert myself. The more I think about it though, the more I wish I had.

So many people out there do not realize how many wonderful programs and services are in place to really help people and make a difference in the world. It gives me hope for the healing of humanity happens one individual at a time. It is so beautiful and inspiring to see lives be truly touched.

For example, did you know that CalFresh or  “food stamps” as they used to be called actually subsidize commerce? This means that food stamps do NOT come out of taxpayer dollars. In fact, CalFresh, or food stamps actually enhance the local economy and keep farmers in business. So why not muster up the courage and let go of your ego for a moment to be proud of helping your economy, yourself, and your family (if you have one)?

There are so many times where we allow rumors and word of mouth to taint our minds with false information. If we just did our research, and lent out a helping hand when we have been able, we would be able to drastically alter our state of humanity.

Everyone deserves to have choice in a world where free will is given.

Everyone deserves love and compassion in all capacities.

Everyone deserves a helping hand and a listening ear, even if just for a moment.

Everyone deserves a chance at life.

Everyone deserves to be treated for what they are – a human being.

You are NOT forgotten

Photographers Unknown. Edited by Eternal Waking Beauties

The whirlpools of chaos consume my mind.

How have I lost my footing?

The ground so solid beneath me

hollowed.

I have fallen.

Fallen into this abyss of insanity

that I dare not call home.

Where did this lackluster begin to weave the very fabric of my being?

I catch a reflection

perplexed by who stands before me.

This tattered soul. This vagrant form. This subspecies who no one dares call human.

And for what?

For asking to be used and abused time and time again?

For being force fed lies of disturbing proportions until it became an ingrained belief?

For my self destructive tendencies to only relinquish myself from the fear and the pain?

Or

For my open honesty?

For your feeling of uncomfort?

For rattling your perfect world of normalcy?

For tearing down what you know as reality?

Well this is reality for all too many and has become commonplace.

One out of every four women you know has been sexually assaulted at one point in their lives.

Do you have a mother?

A grandmother?

A wife?

A daughter?

A friend who recognizes her gender as female?

At least one of them has been groped without consent.

At least one has been objectified as they crawled out of their skin.

At least one has cried themselves to sleep with the disbelief of what occurred that evening.

At least one has felt hopeless and dead inside.

So please tell me why the uncomfort of my words weighs heavier than the uncomfort your love one had to live through?

No matter what you choose this truth exists and will continue to exist with our without your recognition.

So why not help?

Why not fight?

Why not take a stand?

This is not just a woman’s problem.

This happens to one out of seven boys as well.

They may not admit it.

But they still feel the heaviness of this unnecessary evil.

Allow these boys who are now men to have the right to feel.

Let them know there is strength in seeking help.

Let them know their dignity and masculinity will remain unscathed for being ready to heal.

These injustices are not okay now, nor will they ever be.

But the ways we choose to learn, heal, grow, and overcome are always right for us.

Be brave.

Take a stand for someone you love.

Especially if that someone you love is yourself.

Harvest Full Pisces Moon 2017

Harvest Moon

The harvest moon is when all of your hard work and loving care has left you a bounty of delicious crops from cranberries to sweet potatoes. This time leaves you abundant as you reap your well deserved reward. What have you put all of your energy toward over this past year? We are soon to celebrate the autumnal equinox, and must show gratitude as we begin to unwind.

Appreciate all of the little things, for you never know how really big they could be. There are so many wonderfully prosperous blessings coming to us all. Be thankful for all gifts that are received, both big and small. Remember some are puzzles, so keep a jovial innocence about what is to come.

Pisces Full Moon

Pisces is a fun labyrinth of exploring ideas and feelings as they try to balance these two beautifully entwined phenomenon. Harmony is key in this sign as intuition is fed an array of knowledge. The fish always seeks to continue on their path laid before them.

Pisces consists of two fish who have their tails tied together in the abyss of the night sky. This places them at odds for sometimes one will push one way, while the other pulls in opposition. Our heads may be tugging at us one way, while our hearts cling for the other shore. Our bodies may be frozen due to our soul’s persistent cautions during the time of a Pisces full moon.

Planetary Aspects

There are many favorable aspects in the night sky as Saturn trines Mercury, Venus, Uranus, and sextiles Jupiter. Saturn helps us know our limitations (working 60 hour weeks without self care), create boundaries (let someone know you will not allow their inappropriate behavior in your space), and free ourselves from restrictions unjustly placed upon us (beliefs we are limited and unable to make choices in life). Mercury will be aiding us in communicating each scenario presented by Saturn due to the favorable trine aspect. Our voices will be pure and heard. Venus brings a soft, loving flare to the dynamic allowing for a tender touch among all the drastic shifts. Jupiter gives us a favorable outcome achieved with considerable ease as it sextiles Saturn.

Uranus trines Mercury and Mars – opposing Jupiter. Uranus, the planet of progression (on day 5 of your new work out routine), ingenuity (devising a new way to organize the Q: drive), and intuition also trines Mercury creating effective communication. Mars brings an instinctual assertion to our need for these creative changes altering our lives for the better. With Jupiter in a harsh aspect, we are going to have to work hard and remain persistent to uphold a true transformation.

Pluto sextiles the moon and Neptune while sitting trine the sun. We continue on our path of spiritual growth as we hit another point of renewal creating a rebirth into our soul with Pluto. Our balance in harmonizing the divine masculine and feminine within is done at a conscious and subconscious level thanks to the moon and sun. Dreams have set sail on a sea of inspiration, while our compassion grows nurturing spiritual enlightenment as Neptune helps us ascend to our true form.

The Koi and the Dragon

Artist Unknown

There is a story of hard work and determination that begins with a school of golden koi swimming upstream the Yellow River in China. The school came across a waterfall, where most allowed the current the carry them downstream. Only a few continued to persist through their obstacle, and launched themselves toward the heavens. After 100 years, one reached the top of the waterfall and transformed into a golden dragon symbolizing imperial royalty and strength.

This story motivates people to remain steadfast and tenacious along their path for the reward will be worth every challenge. Every obstacle is a chance at growth and transformation for the better. Once we return to our souls by lovingly shedding our ego, we will be able to harness our inner dragons.

Picture a koi who acts like it is a dragon, but knows it’s a koi, yet is truly a dragon, and will remain a koi until it lets go of the ego to assume its true form. We are each this koi. Some of us are not able to grow because we act like a dragon with an inflated sense of self (ego), while others believe they are just koi with a deflated sense or self (also ego). Once either or both of these forms are released, we can harness our true nature of the mystical dragon.

Ceremony Tools

For this ceremony my stone of choice will be the pearl. Dragons are known to play with pearls, and create them from their spittle as they fly through the air. They are said to have properties that promote faith, integrity, and purity. Pearls are linked to a mix of earth and water elements for they are created from particles of sand, and hail from the ocean. They are also linked to the moon bringing out the inner goddess to balance emotions while enhancing sincerity and loyalty. The moon and rain forest incense will make a wonderful pair refreshing and cleansing the air around me. Suggested oils or resins would be sandalwood and dragon’s blood. White, light and dark blue candles to aid in cleansing, divine connection, and tranquility will bring a peaceful contentment.

Enjoy your full moon Eternal Waking Beauties. May you all be blessed and surrounded by unconditional love.
