Heliacal Rising of Venus (August 19th, 2015)
Every 8 years, the planet Venus creates a Rosabelle — a 5 petaled star formation as viewed from earth!  The Heliacal Rising of Venus marks the beginning of the creation of one of these petals which takes 584 days to do! From now through to April 20th, 2016 Venus will rise in our sky as a morning star as she creates a the beginnings of a new petal of the Rosabelle!


In addition, we are still transiting through the heralded Venus retrograde period which will turn direct on September 6th.

You maybe be experiencing some of it’s effects for this has been a time of deep reflection into our shadows, wounds and core issues.  This is fostering deep transformation and a stripping away all that is no longer serving us so that we can collectively experience more love, abundance, balance and happiness in our lives. We are deep in the shift towards a more feminine way of being that is more service oriented, compassionate, loving, and caring for the planet and all sentient beings.

Remember, where ever there is a breakdown, a break through is inevitable!  We are the ones we’ve been waiting for! Our time is now and we are here.

What is in your heart to create at this time of new beginnings?  You have unique gifts and talents and a purpose that only you can fulfill.  How are you going to be of service?

If you want to experience more love in the world start by nourishing your love for yourself.

As within, so without.

By Celia Fenn,

In this period of 2015 we are most certainly in a Wave of powerful transformational energy.  Our lives and our Reality is being changed at a very fast pace and in ways that we are often still coming to terms with.  I think that the most recent wave of changes has been the most definitive and also maybe the most surprising.

It has to do with our fellow citizens on the Earth.  The Animals.  Quite simply put, the Earth can ascend no further unless we make peace with the Animal Kingdom.  We have to take into OUR consciousness the fact that in a Fifth Dimensional World we are all connected and related, and that means that we can no longer abuse and destroy without acknowledging that it is ourselves that we are abusing and destroying.

This awakening, and this recognition, and ultimately this raising of consciousness has been centered on Africa.  Why?  Well, for several reasons.  Probably the most evident is that Africa is the only continent that still has a large wild life population, but which is now under extreme threat.  Secondly, Africa is the continent that is the focus of the Sirius Project, which is the clear guidance and love of the Sirian Master Teachers from the Sirius Star System. That influence extends from Egypt in the North to South Africa in the South.

Solstice June 21st and “Calling the Animals” 

At this year’s Solstice celebrations, I was guided by Archangel Michael to call for a Global Meditation on the “Calling the Animals”.  The purpose of this was to call the animals to us and to express to them our desire that they should come with us into the New Earth and be part of our New Earth Reality.

I did not realize at that point how crucial it was to the whole Ascension project that would make this expression of intent to our fellow brothers and sisters on the Earth!

Further, I also was shown how the Animals are not inferior forms of life, but are also “Star Seeds”, gifts from the Creative Beings who are our Galactic and Cosmic Family.  If we could not honor our Animal Family, how could we honor the Galactic and Cosmic Family who had gifted these Life Forms to our Planet.

As it happened, I was also invited to attend a Ceremony in the far North of South Africa at an ancient Stone Circle.  This site was located on the “Nile” meridian and also on the borders of South Africa, Swaziland and Mozambique.  Just to the North was the Kruger National Park, our biggest wildlife sanctuary, and beyond that, Zimbabwe.

And so it was that I was privileged to be with a large group of people as we “Called the Animals” from the Sacred Circle that we had  created around the main standing stones.  I remember quite clearly calling the Lion of the North.  In our circle, North was towards Kruger and Zimbabwe, home of Cecil the Lion who was to be a major player in this unfolding wave of energy.

I did specifically call the White Lions as the Spirit Keepers of Africa, to be the guardians of the North.  It was also interesting, that our Ceremony was visited by two large Crows, who as messengers of the Spirit world carried our intentions into the Spirit Realms.

Cecil the Lion and the Royal Lions of Sirius


And so it was that the message was received by the Spirit Keepers of Africa, and the Royal Lions of Sirius.

Now, perhaps I should explain how very important Lions are in the Sirian teachings.

In the creation story, the Prime Creator known as Amun-Ra, gives birth to two beings who are called Shu and Tefnut.  They are the original Masculine and Feminine energies, and Tefnut who is the Feminine, is always depicted as a Lioness Headed Woman.  Lion/ess energy is Sacred to the Sirians, it is a manifestation of the Divine Creative Essence.

And so it is that in Africa, where the Sirius energy is strongest on the Planet, that the Lions came to be the Spirit Keeper of the Continent.  And it was there, in the Spirit Council of the White Lions, that our call was heard.  And so it was decided that a Noble Lion would be needed to bring to Humanity the message of the Lions and the call to “Family” in the New Earth.

And so it was that Cecil, the noble Lion of Hwange, was called to carry the role of the Sacred Path of the Lion King.

Now while this is a beautiful story, it also does not hide the fact that every day Lions are hunted, poached and killed in Africa, and that the death of  Cecil was not a “demanded sacrifice” but an illustration of what is befalling all lions in Africa, and ultimately, all animals on Earth.

The purpose of the very public killing of Cecil the Lion was to bring the energy of the Lion into the Collective Consciousness just at the very moment when the Sun was in Leo and we were approaching a very crucial Ascension Moment in the Lions  Gate of 2015, the 8/8/8.

It was to make Humanity aware of what was happening to the lions and to the animals on the Earth.  To remind Humanity of their mission to love and hold the animals and their purpose of recreating the Garden on the New Earth so that All Life Forms could be present.

And it was to make us aware that our Star Nation brothers and sisters, especially the Sirians, were here present with us in this work.  The powerful energies of the Lion’s Gate are assisting the Planet through the Gateways of Time and into the Higher Dimensions that are guarded by the Royal Sirian Lions of Yesterday and Tomorrow.

8/8/8 : The Lion’s Gate and Beyond

The Lion’s Gate of 2015 on the 8th of August is the culmination of an Ascension Wave that will lift the planet into the highest frequencies of Luminosity that have yet been achieved on Earth!

On the 8th of August, the Royal Sirian Lions will be on hand in the Spirit Realm to be the assistants at this wonderful moment of Ascension and Birthing for the Planet.

We can be sure too, that Cecil the Lion will be there in Soul/Spirit form, to watch over the final stages of the story that he had such a part in creating.

From this moment forward, the Animals will step into their sovereignty and will become our fellow citizens of the New Earth.

This will create a radical shift in consciousness that will challenge all that we believe about love and compassion and the way in which we embody these essential energies.

We will be required to shift from a society that believes that Humanity is central and that everything on the Planet is simply “resources” to be consumed, to a society that acknowledges the Unity of a Family of Living Beings sharing a common home and a common destiny.

This is the Great Shift we need to make if the Earth is to continue to ascend into her true Destiny as a Planet of Love and Compassion.




Copy of Cancer New MoonWed. July 15th - 6_24 pm-1

By Divine Harmony

the new moon at 21’31 leo is exact on friday august 14th, 2015 at 7:53am PDT. with the new moon in the sign of the sun- we have a lunar month unfolding that is focused on our expression of creativity, passion, confidence, self-Love and enjoyment of life! this new moon is exceptionally potent as it is conjunct the asteroid eros- whose name is the root word of erotic. the erotic encompasses more than just sexuality- it is about the fire that burns inside and it is ultimately about passion for life. as the only sun-ruled sign, leo is very much in touch with this inner passion and fervor and with eros on the new moon we have a huge call to own our desires, passions, creativity and originality in new and deeper ways.

the new moon is highly aspected- with one of the stand out aspects being the sun and moon’s conjunction to retrograde venus. on saturday the 15th we have the sun/venus conjunction- which marks the midpoint of the venus retrograde cycle we are in that began on july 25th and ends on september 6th (for more info on venus retrograde read my blog posted here- http://www.divineharmony.org/cosmic-insight-divine-harmony/divine-harmony-astrology-blog/venus-retrograde-on-regulus-a-changing-of-the-guard/). this 44 day journey of venus behind the sun is akin to innana’s journey into the underworld. we are being asked to dive deep into our psyches and review our past to understand our relationship with self-worth, self-value, self-Love, money, relationships, sensuality and sexuality as it expresses itself in our lives today. venus retrograde is journeying into the underworld to help us find the gold we seek which will illuminate something for us and ultimately help us to heal our relationship with something (within or without). this is a time to reevaluate things- as venus rules value and worth and when she is hidden behind the sun we are able to use the sun’s Light of consciousness to really see what it is we cannot see about ourselves or karmic situations in our lives.

when retrograde venus is conjunct the sun it is called her inferior conjunction which coincides with the beginning of a new phase of evaluation or a new course of action taken (loosely quoting erin sullivan) as a result of all that we have realized or experienced (internally as well as externally) during the first 1/2 of venus retrograde (since july 25th but also since june 21st when venus first entered her shadow). a sun/venus conjunction is also called venus cazimi- which means in the heart of the sun- a time when the Light of the sun/conscious self can illuminate deep gifts but also shine a Light on dark shadows that need to be faced around venusian themes. remember that on the sun there are no shadows so when venus is in the heart of the sun it can illuminate any hidden shadows we have and let us know very clearly where our values, desires, passions and needs are or are not in alignment with our Higher Selves. venus/sun conjunctions occur every 9 1/2 months- so the chart of the conjunction can give insight into what is being seeded in Love, money, values, self-worth and relationships that will unfold over the next 3/4 of a year. a new moon chart typically only speaks to the upcoming month- but because venus is conjunct the new moon there’s a longer term cycle being highlighted right now. the key to working with this consciously is being aware of what you set into motion right now- creativity, fertility and destiny are calling! but conscious creation, conception or evolution is much preferred to Unconscious, yes? 🙂

another really important aspect configuration in the new moon chart is the sun/moon/venus alignment linking up with the uranus/chiron semisextile. this very long term outer planetary transit began in 2009 and lasts until 2021 and it is subtle but powerful. we have uranus- the rebel, revolutionary and Great Awakener in the first sign of the zodiac and we have the chiron, the Wounded Healer, in the last sign. uranus provides insights, bolt out of the blue awarenesses and incites us to take action in our lives and embrace change- while chiron shines a Light on what is wounded within us and what needs to be faced, owned, fully felt in order to be healed and possibly let go. uranus and chiron together provide major openings for awakening and healing- and with both lined up with this new moon conjunct retrograde venus this is amplified tenfold. the sun, moon and venus are trine to uranus- bringing a freedom and liberation energy that can help us break through old karmic patterns and tap into amazing evolutionary energies that can help us to be done with toxic patterns/karmas once and for all! yet at the same time the sun, moon and venus quincunx chiron- bringing us face to face with wounds and pain we have to FEEL before we can heal. we have to own our shadow issues with pisces- enabling, addiction, denial, avoidance, codependency, playing the victim or the martyr. we also have to own our shadow issues with leo- narcissism, pride, selfishness, thinking we have no shadow and being run by our desire nature in unhealthy ways. the Highest expression of this new moon lining up with uranus and chiron is to use the new cycle being seeded as a time to face what we need to face and bring the Bright Light of consciousness to the darkest places within us that cannot see the Light.

with this very leo new moon, we can use the sun energy to purify. this is a good time to look at our needs for gratification- food, money, sex, attention, love. where are we being run by our desire nature in unhealthy ways? where are we putting the need for pleasure above the need for integrity, honesty or personal growth? yet at the same time the point of this new moon in leo is not to become an ascetic! we are spiritual beings having a human experience. if we were meant to deny our bodies needs and desires then why didn’t we just incarnate as light beings? the tantric path (which encompasses so much more than sexuality) is all about facing our desires and becoming embodied in our experiences. we learn how to sit with things we desire and not clutch at them, and we also learn to sit with things we are repulsed by and not run away from them. this new moon can be a time to check in our relationship to pleasure and enjoyment of life. overdoing it and being a glutton/over spender/sex addict can be just as unhealthy as going to the other extreme and starving ourselves or walling ourselves off from the sweetness of life. the key is to see where are our desires (or lack of desire) sourced from? are they sourcing from an inner wound that feels like a hole we can never fill- and so we keep overeating, overspending, having too much sex, or spend too much time online- all in the hopes to fill this inner emptiness? or we are on the other end of the spectrum and instead we shut down our desires and needs because of fear of deeper intimacy and vulnerability with ourselves and others? really sitting with these questions and feeling into where our wounds are is key- as we cannot heal what we cannot feel, and we can end unhealthy or toxic patterns in our lives if we don’t get to the Source of where they came from.

i have recently been doing a lot of reading about, studying and understanding shame. robert august masters and brene brown have been my go-to sources (the former writes amazing books, the latter has great ted talks out- so google them). shame is one of the most toxic emotions and when we live from it and do not work to heal it it impacts our ability to be intimate, be in relationship and be vulnerable with others. venus governs self-love and self-worth and shame is a polar opposite energy. shame tells us we are worth nothing and that we do not deserve love. leo is a sign of self-love and sometimes people with lots of leo in their chart can overdo that and tend towards narcissism. yet chiron’s tense aspect to the sun, moon and venus in leo in the new moon chart can bring up deep, ancient wounds and pain around shame, self-worth, self-value and ego (from childhood or past lives). if we undervalue ourselves and think we are worthless or if we overvalue ourselves and think we are better than everyone else- both are coming from a wounded expression of ego. this new moon seeks to find the middle point where we can own our shadow without letting it define us, where we can face our shit without wallowing in it and where we can embody our Light without hubris.

the sabian symbol for this new moon is ‘a carrier pigeon fulfilling it’s mission’. blain bovee specializes in the sabian symbols and he says that this degree is about gathering information and then bringing that information back home, allowing it to settle and then letting it form into some kind of complete understanding. with the new moon occurring a day before the sun/venus conjunction that feels apt- as sun/venus can bring a new kind of understanding or awareness about our relationship to venus and how we want to relate to her moving forward- which can lead us to a more complete understanding of ourselves, our desires, our needs, values and Loves.

this degree also has symbolism connected to a sense of purpose, destiny or mission- so it’s important that we pay attention to any Divine guidance we get right now. important messages can come in- yet we must remember that with chiron quincunx this degree we don’t want to confuse the message with the messenger. the finger pointing to the moon is not the moon itself- and there may be lessons for us right now about not throwing the baby out with the bathwater but also not thinking that the messenger of the Divine is the Divine him or herself!

the star sparks meditation for this degree is deep and insightful. i have posted the full text at the end of this write up but the part i want to point out here is this: “If you can see through yourself and others, and empower the same thing in everybody, no difference, you are on your way to a different journey altogether. For the Christ spark which you are so attuned to and sensitized within will be freely amongst us as the one place we all have most in common. And when you see it there in somebody else, you will get it that what looked to be an isolate and specialized existence was offering all the waters of the world. And now you are the Living Waters in free circulation.” this is one of the Highest expressions of leo- realizing the Divine Christ spark within. yet the shadow side of leo is to think we are the only one who shines so bright, or we are more enlightened or more awakened than others. the lesson really is learned when we can see the Divine spark in everyone- even if they cannot see it in themselves or even if they are choosing to live in the dark. this is not about turning a blind eye but is more about seeing with all eyes (the 3rd included). as elias lonsdale says “these are very deep waters we have gotten ourselves lost inside of”- and this new moon and sun/venus conjunction can shine a Light on the path and help us to find our way to the surface of the waters, if we so choose.

the new moon is also square saturn, which ties into the dominate karmic signature of the entire venus retrograde journey. when venus stationed retrograde on july 25th she did so conjunct jupiter and square saturn- triggering the jupiter/saturn square that was exact on august 3rd. throughout venus’ retrograde journey (including front end and back end shadow- for more on this read my venus retrograde blog) she will cojoin jupiter 3 times and square saturn 3 times- making this a defining signature in her underworld journey. in the new moon chart jupiter is just minutes away from the exact degree that venus was when she stationed retrograde (0’46 virgo). the new moon is in the morning and jupiter’s exact trigger of venus retrograde degree will be in the evening at 5:09pm PDT. to add to this jupiter is in super aspect with the royal fixed star regulus- they align by degree and declination. for more info on regulus’ precession into virgo read the blog linked here- http://www.divineharmony.org/cosmic-insight-divine-harmony/divine-harmony-astrology-blog/regulus-into-virgo-the-meek-shall-inherit-the-earth/ but in short regulus is heralding a new paradigm of masculine/feminine balance in the world. there’s a collective piece to this but also a personal piece- and we each can get insight into our own personal piece at the time of this new moon (so pay attention and listen to the Divine Message being sent your way). the importance of august 14th and 15th because of the new moon, jupiter trigger of venus retrograde degree and the sun/venus conjunction can not be overstated. huge things that have been seeding are about to be fully set into motion. this can play out as inward experiences or outwards ones- but make no mistake they are highly significant.

because the saturn square energy is there- we are being reminded that we need to address what is NOT working first before we can find and anchor into what is. saturn in scorpio is a heavy karmic transit that forces us to face our shadow, own our shit and do our inner work. saturn is only in scorpio for one more month (he moves into sagittarius for good on september 17th)- so this last full lunar cycle with saturn in scorpio is huge. i shared on a blog and on Facebook that if we have been doing our saturn in scorpio inner work since he entered this deep, intense sign in october 2012 that right now we would be doing the final pieces of that work that will result in us finally getting our PhD in transformation and evolution (which has been a long time coming- maybe even lifetimes). yet if we have been avoiding facing our shadow, not doing our inner work or in complete denial about what is toxic and needs to be addressed in relationships, financial situations, our psyche and health or more- then this summer can be crazy intense. you can think of the coming month as a time to shit or get off the pot so-to-speak. the new moon square saturn reminds us that what we want to grow must first be pruned. it’s also a reminder that the Brighter the Light, the darker the shadow. as i said above- leo is ruled by the sun and on the sun there are no shadows. but we have more than just a sun sign- we have many pieces to our chart and to our personality. and if we are solely stuck on only seeing our Light and denying or ignoring our shadow then this new moon and upcoming lunar cycle can bring a pop in the bubble (which can be the absolute best thing for the Spirit- but not so much fun for the ego).

clearly this new moon packs a punch. i am personally very excited about. opportunities to own our Light and shadow, move towards greater integration and live from a clear, open heart are possible this coming month. of course this process will take work and there can be times it’s not all that fun (hard aspects from chiron never are). yet as elias lonsdale so eloquently says “If you can see through yourself and others, and empower the same thing in everybody, no difference, you are on your way to a different journey altogether.” the potential to be on our way to a different journey all together is huge at this new moon and sun/venus conjunction. it is up to each of us to get very clear about what direction we want to head in and what we are willing to leave behind in order to grow. but lest you over focus on what you think you need to let go of outside of you- we’d all do well this upcoming lunar cycle to focus on what it is time to let go of WITHIN. since the outer reflects the inner, if you want real change you must address the Source. call it in with consciousness and let your destiny unfold!

p.s. i titled this blog ‘enchanting the Light and dark into Union’ because the new moon in leo brings Light but the chiron and saturn tense aspects highlight the shadow. venus speaks to relationship and before we can have a healthy outer relationship we must heal our inner relationship- between masculine and feminine, Light and shadow, within and without. the phrase ‘enchanting the Light and dark into Union’ was written by jesse e ayani in her books ‘the brotherhood of the magi’ and ‘the lineage of the codes of light’. both books are amazing and highly recommended if you want to activate the next level of your Soul’s awareness and purpose.

elias lonsdale’s meditation for 22 leo

Leo 22 An alligator swims slowly through a swamp

These are deep waters we have gotten ourselves lost inside of. They are tricky. At any and every point, you can get sucked under into oblivion. Most of us are lost in these frequencies. We can barely stay with any kind of confidence or strength inside. We tend to become the waters, to merge into their impossibility underneath.
Yet there are those who know this way. They have been prepared for situations just like these. And they know how to slip by the borders of consciousness and to uncover those paths that would not even be there unless somebody tracked them closely.
When you are granted the most badly needed of internal navigational feelers and you know what you can do with them, your ultimate challenge begins. Can you see through the consuming appearances that you are the one who’s got it, others around here need it, and you can call the shots? Can you pierce the illusion of the separative self at this crucial juncture?
If you cannot, and it is very hard to accomplish, you will be condemned to success. You will have the Midas touch. Whatever you do, will succeed, will prosper, will glow. And you will hardly recognize how trapped you have become inside the illusory wasteland of your own wishes come true.
If you can see through yourself and others, and empower the same thing in everybody, no difference, you are on your way to a different journey altogether. For the Christ spark which you are so attuned to and sensitized within will be freely amongst us as the one place we all have most in common. And when you see it there in somebody else, you will get it that what looked to be an isolate and specialized existence was offering all the waters of the world. And now you are the Living Waters in free circulation.

Sekhmet is one of the oldest and most powerful deities.   She has appeared in many cultures and religions throughout time.  In Her Egyptian incarnation, Her name was derived from the Egyptian word “Sekhem” which describes Universal Life Energy and translates most simply as the “Power of Powers.”  In ancient times, Sekhem was strongly associated with many Egyptian deities, but Sekhmet was the most noticeable because her name includes it.  She is known as the “Powerful One” or “She who is Powerful.”   It is said that her power is not of the Earth and that “She arrives from the most ancient reaches of the cosmos to reclaim her lost children, that portion of souls who separated from her domain eons before the Earth was a thought in the Mind of God.”

It is understood that the Egyptians inherited their knowledge of Sekhmet from Atlantis, who in turn, received Her from Lemuria.  She is also said to have been embodied in the Babylonian Ishtar, who appears in the Bible as Ashtoreth, Anath, Asheraah, or Esther, the Queen of Heaven; and the Goddess Kore who was prevalent in many world religions.  In the ancient Near East she was called Anat, Ashtoreth and Astarte.  In Tibet Sekhmet is known as Senge Dong-ma, lion-headed dakini, “Guardian of the Secret Tantric Teachings.”  She is called Simhavaktra, in India where she also has a male reflection in the lion-headed incarnation of Vishnu, Narasimha. Pure shakti, she is also closely related to lion-mounted Durga, “Keeper of the Flame.”  In fact, another Egyptian name for Sekhmet is Nesert, which means “the flame” and She is known as the “Bringer of Fire” and the ‘Opener of the Third Eye” through the raising of the primordial power from the base of the spine.


While throughout history Her outer form and persona have altered according to the cultures that embraced Her, Her core essence remained unchanged. For the ancient Egyptian Sekhmet, the lion/human form comes from the lion-headed ones of Sirius.   In Egypt, the lion represented the ferocious destructive aspect of the heat of the sun.   She is known as the power that protects the good and annihilates the wicked.  She is the bringer of justice, a guardian and the goddess of the sun, war, destruction, plagues and healing.  She is also sometimes seen as a daughter of Nut, the sky and Geb, the earth.

Sekhmet-1100888Sekhmet is said to be the daughter of the sun god Ra who created Her when his eye looked upon the earth. According to the legend, Ra, the old king of the Gods, became infuriated with wayward humankind because they were not following his laws and preserving Ma’at (justice or balance).  In His wrath He decided to punish mankind by sending forth an aspect of his daughter, the “Eye of Ra”. He plucked Hathor from Ureaus on his brow, and sent her to earth in the form of a lion. She became Sekhmet, who in the form of a lioness set about slaughtering humans and drinking their blood. Ra, seeing this, realized that at the rate she was going no one would be left on Earth and so he then tried to stop her. But Sekhmet refused to listen and her rampage continued as the fields ran with blood.

So Ra poured 7,000 jugs of beer and stained it with pomegranate juice, so that it would look like blood, into the Nile (which happens to turn red every year when filled with silt during inundation).  Thinking it was blood, Sekhmet gorged on it and became so drunk that she slept for three days. When she awoke, her blood lust had dissipated, humanity was saved, and she returned to her docile self as Hathor.

In one version of the myth, Ptah (the god of creation and wisdom) is the first thing she sees when she awakes and she instantly fell in love with him. In their union they birthed a son Nefertum who was the lotus god of healing and re-established Ma’at.



While she may bring about disease and plague to those who wrong her as the Lady of Pestilence, Sekhmet is also a master of the art of medicine as she provides the cure to various ailments she may have brought to man.  She was the patron goddess of healers and physicians and her priests were known to be very skilled doctors. As a result, the gruesome “Lady of Terror” becomes the benevolent “The Lady of Life.”  She was mentioned numerous times in the various spells of The Book of the Dead as both a creative and vicious force. However, she is most known as the protector of Ma’at (balance or justice) with the epithet: “The One Who Loves Ma’at and Who Detests Evil”.

The saving of mankind was commemorated every year on the feast day of Hathor/Sekhmet. Everyone drank beer stained with pomegranate juice and worshiped “the Mistress and lady of the tomb, gracious one, destroyer of rebellion, mighty one of enchantments.” A statue of Sekhmet was dressed in red facing west, while Bast (the cat-headed Goddess of pleasure and luxury) was dressed in green and faced east. Bast was sometimes considered to be Sekhmet´s counterpart (or twin depending on the legend), and in the festival of Hathor they embodied the duality central to Egyptian mythology. Sekhmet represented Upper Egypt while Bast represented Lower Egypt.

Sekhmet has again been reinvented in the twentieth century. Today She has become the symbol of the modern woman and an icon of immanent female power.  She is most revered as a healer, bringer of justice and as a guardian or protector.   Many women view Sekhmet as a source of strength, independence and assertiveness, and commune with her frequency when these attributes are desired to be empowered or instilled.  Although she is still regarded as a powerful force, to be approached with respect and caution, the vicious destruction, retribution and chaos she has been associated with is now understood as transformation, and specifically the ability to transform thought patterns, belief systems, habits and ways of being that no longer serve.  She also reminds us that the Brighter the Light the Darker the Shadow and the importance of owning and integrating one’s shadow side.

Other Spellings and names:  (also spelled Sachmet, Sakhet, Sekmet, Sakhmet and Sekhet; and given the Greek name, Sacmis),Tosmulektal, Dalia, Rasil

Symbols:  Lioness, Flame (Opening of the 3rd Eye), Ankh (Key or Breath of Life), Septer formed from Papyrus (symbolizing the union of Heaven and Earth), Sun Disc, Uraeus on Her headdress (Uraeus is the stylized, upright form of an Egyptian spitting cobra (asp, serpent, or snake),  which symbolize the raising of the kundalini up the djed and opening of the third eye.  They were also used as a symbol of sovereignty, royalty, deity, and divine authority)

Colors:  Red, Yellow, Gold, Rainbow Light

Numbers:  8, Infinity, 3 (trinity)

For those souls able to reach deeply into their own hearts, Sekhmet becomes the ‘Lighted Lady’, whose lamp shines a loving presence into the human experience.

Things to contemplate:

1.  Sekhmet’s name means “the Powerful One.”  She is depicted with a Sun Disc and an uraeus (snake) on her headdress. The Uraeus is a symbol of transformation, evolution and enlightenment. The snake finds its place in the human body in the spine and when awakened spirals it’s way up the spine and activates the third eye giving it eternal sight.  The serpent coiled upon the foreheads of the Egyptian initiates represented this Divine Fire (Kundalini) which had crawled serpent like up the Tree of Life.  Here is a guided meditation of this process:





kundalini-serpent-power2.  Sekhmet is a guardian, a protector and takes a stand for the Law’s of Ma’at!   She is most revered as a healer, bringer of justice and as a guardian or protector.  What things and issues are you passionate about and do you take a stand for?  Taking a stand is different from taking a position, which tends to be against something.  A stand is generally for something.  It is a personal commitment that comes from the heart, from the soul, from vision, and it is life-affirming.

Some topics to consider  A) Environmental Sustainability, B) Social Justice, C) Spiritual Fulfillment, D) Relationships, E) Finances, F) Health, G) Self Expression, etc.

3.  What is your vision and plan?  There is an old proverb that says “A vision without a plan is just a dream.  A plan without a vision is just drudgery.  But a vision with a plan can change the world.”  So what is your plan for following through on those things that you are passionate about taking a stand for?

Areas to consider:  A) Individual/Family, B) Community/Workplace, C) Institutions/Systems

4.  What triggers you or makes you angry?

5.  How do you channel your anger?  Do you fight? Flight? Freeze? or Faint?  Or something else?

6.  Studies show that we learn and make the best decisions when we are in a state of being called “Calm Alert.”  Yes, that is when we are not only calm but also alert.  It is therefor powerful when we are able understand the underlying unmet needs associated with intense feelings, and to shift ourselves from places of extreme anger or debilitating emotions to this place of “Calm Alert.”  What types of things do you or can you do to shift your energy towards a place of Calm Alert?  Here are some examples and ideas that I received from children in my Non Violent Communication classes:

  • go for a walk
  • do some yoga

Awakening the Dreamer, Changing the Dream Symposium



One day… there would come a time, when the earth being ravaged and polluted, the forests being destroyed, the birds would fall from the air, the waters would be blackened, the fish being poisoned in the streams, and the trees would no longer be, mankind as we would know it would all but cease to exist

CreeThis is how the ‘Rainbow prophecy’ begins, as retold by a woman of the Cree Indian nation of America over a century ago.

The Cree are one of the largest groups of the First Nations Native Americans in North America. There are over 135 bands of Cree living in Canada, with a total population of approximately 200,000 today.

The Rainbow prophecy, as it has come to be known, refers to the keepers of the legends, rituals, and other myths that will be needed when the time comes to restore the health on Earth.  It is believed that these legendary beings will return on a day of awakening, when all people will unite and create a new world of justice, peace and freedom, and they will be named the ‘Warriors of the Rainbow’. They will reteach the values and the knowledge that has been lost in time, demonstrating how to have wisdom and extra-perception, and how unity, harmony and love is the only way forward.

The rainbow reference relates to the different colours of the original people:

“At the beginning of this cycle of time, long ago, the Great Spirit came down and He made an appearance and He gathered the peoples of this earth together, they say on an island which is now beneath the water, and He said to the human beings, “I’m going to send you to four directions and over time I’m going to change you to four colours, but I’m going to give you some teachings and you will call these the Original Teachings and when you come back together with each other you will share these so that you can live and have peace on earth, and a great civilization will come about.
Prophecy as told by Lee Brown of the Salish Tribe at the 1986 Continental Indigenous Council, Alaska.

A particularly interesting part of the prophecy relates to the choosing of leaders.  According to the story, a leader will not be the one that talks the loudest, boasts of successes, or has the support of the elite. Leaders will be those whose actions speak the loudest, the ones that have demonstrated wisdom and courage and have proven that they work for the benefit of all. Isn’t this how things should be?

The Rainbow has always held special significance among the different Native American Indian Nations. It is connected to the Spirit (Supreme God/Creator) in all things. Apart from the Cree prophecy there are many prophecies and stories from the Hopi, the Zuni and the Cherokee related to the rainbow warriors.

“There will come a day when people of all races, colors, and creeds will put aside their differences. They will come together in love, joining hands in unification, to heal the Earth and all Her children. They will move over the Earth like a great Whirling Rainbow, bringing peace, understanding and healing everywhere they go. Many creatures thought to be extinct or mythical will resurface at this time; the great trees that perished will return almost overnight. All living things will flourish, drawing sustenance from the breast of our Mother, the Earth.”

“The great spiritual Teachers who walked the Earth and taught the basics of the truths of the Whirling Rainbow Prophecy will return and walk amongst us once more, sharing their power and understanding with all. We will learn how to see and hear in a sacred manner. Men and women will be equals in the way Creator intended them to be; all children will be safe anywhere they want to go. Elders will be respected and valued for their contributions to life. Their wisdom will be sought out. The whole Human race will be called The People and there will be no more war, sickness or hunger forever.
Navajo-Hopi Prophecy of the Whirling Rainbow

“In the time of the Seventh Fire, a New People would emerge. They would retrace their steps to find the wisdom that was left by the side of the trail long ago. Their steps would take them to the elders, who they would ask to guide them on their journey. If the New People remain strong in their quest, the sacred drum will again sound its voice. There will be an awakening of the people, and the sacred fire will again be lit. At this time, the light-skinned race will be given a choice between two roads. One road is the road of greed and technology without wisdom or respect for life. This road represents a rush to destruction. The other road is spirituality, a slower path that includes respect for all living things. If we choose the spiritual path, we can light yet another fire, an Eight Fire, and begin an extended period of Peace and healthy growth.
Grandfather William Commanda, Circle of All Nations Prophecy of the Seven Fires of the Anishnabe, From Ancient Wampum Belt

While Wikipedia would have people believe that the legend originates in a 1962 book titled ‘Warriors of the Rainbow’ by William Willoya and Vinson Brown, the reality is that the prophecy is ancient, passed down as oral history over many generations. Brown, himself, admitted that his research came from the Hopi prophecies, and the book has been criticised as an attempt to evangelize with the Native American community by relating the prophecy of the Rainbow Warriors to the Second Coming of Christ.

References to a new Era, a Golden Age characterised by harmony, stability and prosperity, do not just belong to the Native Americans, but can be found in myths and legends from all over the world.  It is known as Chryson Genos in Greek mythology, the Kali yuga in Vedic and Hindu culture, and gullaldr in Norse mythology.  One aspect that is common among many legends of the Golden era is the return of beings or gods that will aid in the restoration of the Earth.

In classical Greek mythology the Golden Age was presided over by the leading Titan Cronus. In some version of the myth Astraea, also ruled. She lived with men until the end of the Silver Age, but in the Bronze Age, when men became violent and greedy, fled to the stars, where she appears as the constellation Virgo, holding the scales of Justice, or Libra.

Whether these prophecies are true or not, much of what is spoken about – the era of greed and violence – is a reality throughout much of the world today.  Corruption, greed, poverty, consumerism, power to the few, and injustice are predominant characteristics of our civilization accompanied by a great technological advancement that has become a weapon for mass destruction and a tool for supressing resistance.  Whether beings from the past will interfere or not, one thing is for sure, life cannot continue in this way forever.

8_8_8Lions Gate

Aug 8, 2015 (2+0+1+5 = 8)

On July 26th the Helical Rising of the “Isis” Star Sirius opened a portal referred to as the “Lions Gate.” In ancient Egypt this was considered New Years as with it would come the flooding of the Nile and regeneration of their agricultural lands and therefore a great time of celebration.

This portal is open July 26th through August 12th!  The Frequencies of the Golden Light from our Sun as well as the Blue Light from Sirius and the Christed Light from the Galactic Center stream forth to the Earth and align with the great pyramids of Egypt.  These energies build until August 8th with the transmission completing on August 12th.

Streaming thru this Lion’s Gate is information and inspiration for the Divine Plan for Earth and all of Humanity!  On August 8th, we always have 8:8 yet this year because 2015 adds to an 8 we have 8:8:8 the triple energies of the 8!  The number 8 is known as the great Karmic Equalizer and is related to the Universal Spiritual Law of Cause and Effect.  It is a force that can create as well as destroy!  It balances the material and immaterial worlds.  What we are thinking and believing manifests into what we are experiencing.  On the material plane the highest aspects of the 8 energy is focused on results and manifesting abundance, prosperity, harmony, self confidence, inner strength and power. When placed on its side, the 8 becomes the symbol for infinity ∞ and reminds us that there are infinite creative possibilities.

Lions are not only the symbol of the constellation of Leo we are moving through at this time but they are also the Spirit keepers of this portal, and the Spirit Animal that guards the integrity of Mother Africa! They represent spiritual power and remind us to be courageous, strong, dignified, to have faith and to defend our birthrights!
