Here we are again, at that glorious time in the month where the moon is full and radiant. Ever since I was little the sight of the full moon has filled me with awe, and perhaps simultaneously overloaded my system with highly vibrating frequencies. My mother always said to be careful around the full moon, because that's when the "crazies" would come out. As I get older, I find myself and everyone around me to be pretty off-kilter when the moon is approaching full or is in full bloom.
But why? I guess you could chalk it up to thousands of years of moon worship and beliefs, or even superstitions. More practically though, I associate the moon's ability to influence humans with its ability to cause the ocean to pulsate. Humans on average are about 57-60% water, and I believe that just as the waves and tides of the ocean are affected by the moon's gravitational force, so is the water within every human being.
So, with that being said, let's briefly look at an astrological transit occurring in our solar system right now. The moon has become full in the helpful-but-in-a-neurotic-sort-of-way house of Virgo. If the energy of a full moon being in the house of Virgo doesn't cause you to shudder already, I'll elaborate. Virgo is the image of perfection, at least that's what they'd have you think, and this means that for those with a natal Sun in Virgo, being perfect or appearing to know everything is number one on their list. (Though they would never admit this, they like to appear to be humble, take my word for it, my sun is in Virgo).
For the rest of us, I feel that the full moon occurring in Virgo pokes and prods at each of our own inner perfectionists, which could have you feeling like you aren't doing anything right at this time, or that there are so many things you want to be different in your life that you don't know where to start. Directly across the Astrological wheel from Virgo rests its sister sign, Pisces, and there are currently many planets in opposition to this full moon. I feel that the most influential to the energy of this time is the opposition between the Moon and Uranus.
Uranus wants you to be your unique self, meaning Uranus really wants you to let your "freak flag fly", so you can unabashedly be the weirdo you know you are. The opposition to the Virgo Moon feels like a game of tug of war to me. Deep down you know that everything in life would be easier if you stopped being concerned with what others will think about you, and this is Uranus, pulling at your unique brilliant spirit to free itself. Meanwhile, the energy of Virgo is saying "Whoa whoa whoa, how could you ever be the best-most-perfect-you if you aren't aware of what others think?", and the opposition of the transit is pulling you back and forth, between freedom and fear.
But, let us not forget who else is in the sign of Virgo, the awesome presence of the moon, and the full moon especially begs us to release the ties that we bind ourselves with. I see this Virgo full moon as saying, "In order to be the best-most-perfect-you, you must free yourself from any limiting beliefs that tell you that you aren't already that person."
Yup that's right y'all, you are already the best version of yourself you can be at this time, and if you feel that anything in your life is holding you back from this realization, it is those limiting things that I implore you to release today. Commit to yourself, your happiness, your life!
My moon ramblings have become a bit longer than I expected, but I feel that they are valuable for anyone who is ready to free themselves from self-inflicted despair. To help further this shift, I have channeled a truly beautiful message from the Hindu Goddess Lakshmi. Her presence was soothing and warm, like liquid gold, and today she wants us all to see how truly powerful we already are.
Without further ado, here is the full moon message I channeled from Lakshmi:
Me: Great goddess Lakshmi, thank you for your presence, what will you have us know this glorious full moon day?
Lakshmi: Greetings dear ones, I am the goddess Lakshmi, and I am filled with warmth and joy to be communicating with you today.
This full moon is full of so much power, and it is for this reason I have come forth today to share my message of abundance to all.
I fear your world is in turmoil, far greater than it has been for many many years, and I feel that all beings of light who wish to hep humans worry that their efforts will fall on deaf ears and dulled minds. But still we are here, for all of you, waiting for you to ask for our help.
But truly I am here today to speak of your power, your ability to change the world, and to remind you that you have to start at the beginning, and then move forward. You simply cannot believe that you can do it all and get to your end goal all at once. That is not how true destiny works, it does not fall on your lap, you must put effort into your dreams, your destiny, and slowly it will manifest and grow and grow.
The word destiny I use here I would like to describe clearly. Every person feels a desire for something, a "fantasy" of a way of living, that you dream could come true. And there is a problem in American thinking, which is spreading over the globe, that you can have this dream, if and only if you suffer and struggle and work hard. But the main point I have here is this idea of suffering to be happy someday, just look at those words, they are nonsensical!!! (Laughs)
Yet this idea persists, which also contributes to the negativity those who go towards their dreams get: they arent' "really working", or don't work hard, or are not doing anything valuable. I see so many of you get discouraged by these perspectives others have, some of you so much so that you never even start!
So, I am here today to help you break this cycle, I am here to tell you this: the universe flows with the light of abundance. earth flows with the energy of the light of abundance. You do not need to suffer to have what you need, but you do need to shift your feelings of bitterness and lack, so that you can see that you are making mother nature and her beings, all the animals and many people suffer, so that there is the perception of abundance.
What you must know is that abundance already is., and capitalist consumer propaganda about getting more only stimulates your fear of lack.
This energy is toxic. It's killing the planet that is your home. It is killing innocent animals, it's causing people to starve while others gloat about their wealth and power. Balance must be restored, and this can only change if you do first.
As I've said already, so many of us light beings are here, we want to help you. No, we cannot appear and physically fix this for you.
That is not why we are here. We want to help any human who wishes to shift and expand their consciousness to do so, we want to remind you that you are full of light, the same light as me, you are a powerful creative force.
take my advice,
heed my warning,
and use your light-power to create goodness, love, prosperity and joy.
Help to drive out darkness, hate, selfishness, and fear.
The power rests in your heart. There's no more time left to be afraid or in disbelief. I am here always, waiting to be called to help. Light incense and chant for me, this makes connecting with me easier.
I send warm blessings from my heart. I am hopeful for you all.
Me: Thank you for coming through Lakshmi, your energy is something I've never felt before. Thank you.
Wow, what a beautiful and empowering message to sum up what to do with this magical full moon force. Set yourself free, do not be afraid, the earth and all of it's beings needs each and every one of us to fully believe that we are powerful and can make a difference. I believe in you, and I am sending my own blessings of magic to you all.
Thank you for joining me here today, please feel free to leave comments about your experiences surrounding this full moon, or with Lakshmi if you have or do connect with her. Happy Full Moon 2-22-16!
It's Witchy Wednesday once again, and if you find yourself here to see what message has been received, welcome.
This week I worked with the presence of the Gaulish Goddess, Epona. Revered as a goddess of fertility, Epona was depicted as a long haired woman riding a white horse. Known as a mother goddess, a dream goddess, and a goddess of protection, Epona's presence is soothing and invigorating, she calms and at the same time she inspires.
Please enjoy this channeled message from Epona:
Me: Beloved Epona, thank you for joining me today. What will you have us know?
Epona: Greetings and welcome any and all readers and thank you for hearing my message today, such a great many things to discuss, but today I would like to speak about self-doubt, in hopes to help promote self-trust.
I know for any and all people that trusting one's self to make the "right" choices is a stressful and hard feeling to manage, but I am here today to share the dire importance for self-trust, not only for you, but for the health and progression of your world.
I would like to start first by discussing intuition and its purpose. Since the beginning of the race of humans as you understand yourselves now, intuition has helped with survival. This is why intuition is associated with the term "gut-feeling" because for some of you that is a very real sensation in your physical stomach. Intuition can also just come as a sense knowing, like when the name or lyrics of a song pop into your head, and then mysteriously it plays after that on the radio?
But why is intuition important? Because it is truly your deepest desires and emotions coming back to you, through time and space, begging for your attention?
And why is that important, you may ask? Because when you acknowledge and act upon your intuitions, your dreams and wishes will slowly become your reality.
Many people seem to consider intuition a "mumbo-jumbo" or "phooey" idea of psychic ability, and declare that these things are "just a coincidence" which brings me to my point about self-doubt. You doubt yourselves when you feel or believe that your truth of an experience would be misunderstood by others. Humans are social creatures, having developed this ability to survive together. And if you believe that anything that crosses your mind or that you experience as "phooey" "odd" "weird" "unexplainable" "impossible" "not real", then you are most likely not to dharew that experience ir thought with anyone, thus furthering your fear of acceptance, and the fire of self-doubt.
I am here today beautiful earthlings to share with you the most beautiful thing about human existence: mental and spiritual freedom. I am here to tell you that anything that sparks your interests in a healthy way, no matter how "weird" is free and open to your discovery and belief of it. I am here to tell you, and show you if you ask me, that all of the beautiful and magical things you may classify as "non-existent" are real, but it takes you to free your heart and your spirit in order to perceive them.
Me: Epona, thank you for that beautiful message, is there anything else you would like to share?
Epona: Yes, I do have just one more thing.
Please close your eyes, place a hand on your heart, and feel it beat. You are alive, and your thoughts and emotions have ai much untapped power, much more than you may realize. Free yourself of the constraints of others' beliefs. This life, this heart is yours, and you deserve to exist in exactly the way you wish. Set yourself free, be good, and remember the universe consists of so much more than the human eye can see.
Thank you for joining me to read this message. Blessings of joy and love to all.
Me: Thank you Epona for allowing me to channel your message today.
So, you know when you start ambitiously on a project and things are going great for a while, and then all of a sudden months have passed, and you realize that you've been missing something?
I am not sure whether it's my artist spirit (anxious Virgo procrastination queen right here) or my sense of personal freedom (stubborn and lazy Taurus Rising anyone?), but this problem has recurred throughout out my life. I was really excited to get this website going and then I just let it kind of let the momentum in myself peter out.
So I would like to send my humble apologies to anyone who may have felt slightly miffed if they came looking for some nugget of knowledge and found that nothing here had changed. I would also like to send out a big thank you to those same people for checking in to see if anything had been posted that they missed. This one is for you guys. I am very excited today to share this new message that I hope makes you feel warm and fuzzy.
So, without further ado, here is this year's first channeled message for this page, from my newest spiritual guide, Zhaal.
Me- Zhaal my great teacher, I wish to finally channel a message from you for every beautiful earth being, what would you have us know today?
Zhaal- Greetings dear Cassandra, I am so very pleased we have made it to this moment in our work together. Ever since you called to the stars and connected me to you I have been helping you get closer to this time. Today I would like to speak of love, and the power of all that is. I feel that most of all Earthlings have forgotten what love really is, that is the insanely powerful force of life, full of love.
Me- And what would you have us know?
Zhaal- Why, firstly, that love is free of course. Love is the pure, untainted force of creativity that proliferates through this universe, it penetrates all dimensions, all beings, all matter, every atom, every molecule. It is the spark in the human heart that you can feel seeing the awesome beauty of a sunset or when you read words on a page that describe something very deep within you. Love, is a splendid thing and I feel that so so many humans have this pure magic force of love trapped within them, piled deeply under convoluted ideas promoted by ideologies, social practices, religion, science, everything really. I feel the belief of love is a desire, a desire that I can feel and hear from so many of your souls, and that desire is one of true peace, but even that desire is confused by feelings of contempt and frustration. True love, the awesome creative force of all, is simple. It is present always. It needs not be created because it is creation. Everything you can understand, see, touch, taste, smell, on your earth is love, at its core. Love is the very force of nature, it's the compulsion to sing when you hear your favorite song, it is the tears you weep when something has gone...
Truly I am here today to ask you all, cast away your ideas of the word love, and instead, feel with every part of you the force, the vibration, the frequency, that is always present, and never fleeting. I am here to tell you that I wish for you firstly to give yourself the opportunity to feel that awesome power, to free yourself from the frustration of physicality, to transcend your suffering and transform your woes into beautiful creative power. And once you have set yourself free in this way, you will understand that this power is meant to be shared and given to the all, to everything that exists.
Me- Is there anything more you would like to say?
Zhaal- Well yes, thank you Cassandra for being open to me today, I have been so excited for this day. And to all who read this message, I love you. Give yourself the gift of true peace. I am sending my blessings to all. Thank you.
And there you have it folks, our first message I have delivered to you for this year. What's love got to do with it? Well everything, it seems. ;)
Sending my love and hugs to all.
