Third Moon Phase: re-alignment, revision, re-orientation
Ruling Mahavidya: Bhairavi and Shodashi
Phantasmagoric imprints were encoded into yesterday’s energy. It was a momentous day, one that will reverberate through space-time with great power. Seeds for the future were sown.
The goose is the animal that symbolizes imprints and seeds.
If you’ve been following the Oracle Report for a while, you will remember working with the teachings of “goose medicine.” In the context of what’s happening right now, new paths and possibilities are opening. Shodashi’s hand, as the Goddess Who Fulfills Highest Desires, is at work here. With the brushstroke of an accomplished artist, she used yesterday’s energy to paint the potential direction of our lives (our highest wish if we choose to pursue it – it’s always our choice). The paintings will begin unveiling at the New Moon on September 5th. Magic!
I must mention briefly, to keep everything real, that forces that do not have our highest desires in mind were also aware of yesterday’s potential for imprinting the future and took full advantage. However, this pales in comparison. Their efforts are lackluster. So we are aware of it and that’s all that needs to be said.
Back to the important story: the upcoming energy of Shodashi. We can work with this now by immersing ourselves in the perspective of the Third Quarter Moon phase which is realignment, revision, and reorientation. This means we are open to shifting. Are you open to shifting?
The day after a major transit of the Black Moon brings subtle, sweet relief. Tag onto that subtle frequency and ride along. What’s the most beautiful thing you see on your journey today? It’s your mission to discover it.
Anyone with the Black Moon in Cancer or Capricorn already knows that the energy of the lead up to yesterday’s Black Moon – Pluto opposition has been heavy. Hold tight because the Moon has moved into Cancer, giving you another of your opportunities for rebirth (I can hear the joy and I am being sarcastic!). Ground yourself by getting outdoors and taking in nature. Give over anything that you wish to release.
P.S. If you own a copy of Ted Andrews’ Animal Speak, it is a good idea to read about the goose. One of my favorite insights he has relates to fairytales and children’s stories. He says that your favorite children’s story, nursery rhyme, or fairy tale gives insight into your “coding” or “imprinting,” and often provides important information about one’s direction/mission in life…
