Full Moon Phase: illumination, realization, fulfillment

Moon in Leo

Ruling Wisdom Goddess: Kali

Sabian Symbol for the Lunar Month: “an Indian chief claims power from the assembled tribe” (self-empowerment, personal sovereignty)

Skill: release yourself from trying to control time

Negative Imprint: over-analysis, ignoring rules or laws, things that are unbearable, restraints, rushing, missing key things, forcing, suppression of rebellion, false claims of power and change, clandestine

Positive Imprint: objectivity, inventiveness, identifying issues, focus, practice, disinhibited, slow and steady, observation, potent healing, confidence

Full light continues to be thrown off and also throw things off this Full Moon phase. We are coming to new understandings about ourselves and this is rippling out into the field, changing it. This is how the world changes.

What is trying to be revealed to you? It may be having a harder time getting through because, even though it is a Full Moon phase right now, the Black Moon and Neptune are in opposition. The Black Moon and Neptune together tend to shroud and mystify. So if you are trying to understand, fix, improve, and integrate something and it isn’t coming quite happening, don’t try to rush or force it. Relax the tension. Take a breath. Wait for the fog to clear.

With this, it is important to understand that we may attempt to blame the hold-up or lack of clarity on ourselves. We are clearly seeing our “major malfunctions.” The solutions are what aren’t easily visible right now. We personalize this, but the nature of this energy is one of “veiling.”

The reason solutions aren’t clear is because there is re-arrangement of “the field” happening this lunar cycle – Kali the Destroyer’s cycle. Using the energetics of Uranus/Pluto and Mercury/Venus, she is putting everything in spin. Consciousness is taking a mass turn. She is refreshing the dream, re-commanding it by calling forth our inner chief to claim our power and our place.

Our inner sacred masculine continues to rise. The inner rise and outer manifestation of the sacred masculine within all of us is what is healing us and restoring us to sanity. This energy is very, very strong now because we are in the Full Moon phase (the fullest expression) of the energy that was imprinted back at the New Moon. The energy that was infused then to be time-released throughout the month is the energy that would cause an Indian chief to assume his role, his mantle of power, within his tribe. It causes him to come forward to lead.

This is why things are welling up in relationships. Power and control dynamics are responding to this shift, this mass turn, and changing things dramatically. All things are in relationship, so this weaves through everything. Kali is the master at this and her reach is great. The changes are creating strong, permanent foundations for the future.

Kali doesn’t just destroy. She re-creates.

Today, be aware of the tendency to be extra hard on ourselves and become mired in our perceived failures. This energy can create harsh confrontations with ourselves which can all too easily become projected onto others. This commonly occurs with Full Moon phases, but is intensified today.

Kali is in control of the hands of time right now, not us. There is no reason to rush or force anything. It is much more fun to release the controls and watch what happens.

Thank you for supporting the Oracle Report. Blessings to all!

Dr. Jeff Masters’ WunderBlog : Extreme Cold Blast and Heavy Snow Hit Midwest U.S. | Weather Underground

The most extreme cold air outbreak since 1994 is in store for much of the U.S. on Monday and Tuesday, as Arctic air behind a major winter storm invades the Midwest. The powerful 989 mb storm blasted the Upper Midwest on Sunday, bringing snows in excess of a foot over portions of Illinois, Michigan, Indiana, Missouri, and Ohio. The 11.4″ that fell on Sunday in Indianapolis, Indiana made it that city’s second snowiest day on record (the all-time record: 12.1″ on March 19, 1906); Flint, Michigan also recorded its second snowiest day on record: 14.5″ (the all time record: 15.0″ on November 28, 1937.) A blast of Arctic air poured into the Upper Midwest on Sunday, and Sunday’s playoff game between the Green Bay Packers and the San Francisco 49ers began with a temperature of 5°F and a wind chill of -10°, evoking memories of the legendary Green Bay Packers-Dallas Cowboys Ice Bowl NFL playoff game on December 31, 1967. On that frigid day, the temperature at kickoff was thirteen below zero, with a wind chill of -45°F. It’s lucky that yesterday’s game wasn’t played today: the high temperature inGreen Bay is expected to be near -10°, with wind chills as low as -40°. The temperature in Chicago at noon CST Monday was a remarkable -14°F, with gusty west winds of 20 mph causing a dangerously low wind chill of -40°. This is the 7th coldest noontime temperature ever measured in the Windy City (the record was -21° on January 10, 1982). The record-breaking cold air will spread eastward and southward over the next few days, bringing the coldest temperatures seen since January 1994 to many locations. The high temperature in Detroit on Tuesday is expected to remain below zero; the city’s list of days with a high temperature below zero is a short one, with only three such days in recorded history. The frigid air is being propelled by strong Arctic winds of 15 – 25 mph, which will generate dangerously low wind chill readings in the -30° to -60°F range from Michigan to Minnesota on Monday and Tuesday. From the latest NWS Storm Summary, here are the coldest wind chill readings observed so far:

Comertown, MT: -63
Rolla, ND: -60
Grand Maraia, MN: -55
Hillhead, SD: -53
Mason City, IA: -48
Dexter, WI: -47

The culprit: cold air from Canada and the polar vortex
In the winter, the 24-hour darkness over the snow and ice-covered polar regions allows a huge dome of cold air to form. This cold air increases the difference in temperature between the pole and the Equator, and leads to an intensification of the strong upper-level winds of the jet stream. The strong jet stream winds act to isolate the polar regions from intrusions of warmer air, creating a “polar vortex”of frigid counter-clockwise swirling air over the Arctic. The chaotic flow of the air in the polar vortex sometimes allows a large dip (a sharp trough of low pressure) to form in the jet stream over North America, allowing the Arctic air that had been steadily cooling in the northern reaches of Canada in areas with 24-hour darkness to spill southwards deep into the United States. In theory, the 1.5°F increase in global surface temperatures that Earth has experienced since 1880 due to global warming should reduce the frequency of 1-in-20 year extreme cold weather events like the current one. However, it is possible that climate change could alter jet stream circulation patterns in a way that could increase the incidence of unusual jet stream “kinks” that allow cold air to spill southwards over the Eastern U.S., a topic I have blogged about extensively, and plan to say more about later this week.

Well, maybe not, but it is a lot of white fluffy stuff. When I took this early this morning, it was so beautiful and serene outside, but now the wind is blowing and howling. Getting a lot f drifting, and things aren’t looking so pretty as early this morning. 😦

Crescent Moon Phase: expansion, growth, gathering, challenges

Moon: Pisces/Aries

Ruling Mahavidya: Kali

AUDIO RECORDING 12/31/2013 – Gregorian New Year – New Ruling Mahavidya – KALI (copy and paste the link)

https://www.freeconferencing.com/playback.html?n=/storage/sgetFC/IJ4wb/aIRQki

After a weekend of pausing to listen to the magi Jupiter, we gather up our rowdy companions Pluto, Uranus, Mars, and Mercury, saying goodbye and continuing on our journey through this lunar month. But we aren’t alone for long.

Up ahead, Mercury spots them first: two women. The rowdy band of brothers is excited. It’s Venus! Now they are really excited. Oh, and it’s the Black Moon. Their moods quickly deflate, all except Pluto, who looks right past Venus casting a furtive eye on the Black Moon. When the Two Sisters are together, Pluto reminds us, they bring great rewards. Good fortune is in store.

Surprisingly, Venus tells us she is on her way to a convent for a respite. She’s trying to sort some things out and needs time for contemplation. Mercury, Mars, and Uranus roll their eyes.

But the Black Moon, having evaluated our little party of travelers, offers passage through her domain, which, we quickly realize, is a beautiful underworld of sorts. She tells us to continue on, because there is a war party on our heels.

Kali, our leader, steps up and tells us she’s been aware of the threat since the journey began and is following it every step of the way. She tells us not to worry. Instead of worrrying we should infuse our minds with the feelings of peace and gratitude for the beauty and the blessings that are present in our lives. She tells us these things appear very differently when we travel through the land of the Black Moon. We take a different perspective, bringing some things down to black and white and amping some things up to technicolor.

This weekend’s “children’s story” (see Archives) takes on decidedly mature themes today with a very unique astrological set up of Venus retrograde opposing the Black Moon and Mercury opposing from the other side. This brings changes to relationships and the tendency to say things before we think. Venus and the Black Moon always bring a positive outcome, even when the circumstances at the time may seem grim. Relationships that do not serve our highest or grandest purposes move off, quickly replaced by new ones. Relationships that do serve our highest and grandest purpose take on more depth. This includes all types of relationships – not just romantic relationships (professional, familial, interpersonal, etc.). Pluto and the Black Moon are not concerned with superficial relationships. They are interested in meaningful, deep commitment and true love.

This energy is about appreciation. It’s about recognizing your blessings. It asks us to evaluate ourselves honestly and own who we are. We have no idea how grand and powerful we really are. It is almost impossible for us to conceive it because the framework for recognizing it has been eliminated over time (beginning with the decimation of the mystery schools in ancient times).

When you deal with the energy of the Black Moon, there are always two sides to things. Something may come back around later. This is especially true since we have Venus retrograde. When Venus starts to move forward again next month it will re-contact this point and bring the second side to what is developing today. This is how energy imprints and re-imprints. It happens in cycles.

There are strong masculine and feminine energies in the air today, adding fuel to whatever is being intended. Intend wisely.

Stay grounded, be reminded of the good fortune at the heart of this energy, find inner peace, and above all, fall back in love with life today. Look around. There are so many beautiful things to see.

(Note: The “war party” in the story is the upcoming potential for the continuation of aggression that was seeded at the New Moon. The potential for this becomes stronger with the Sun’s approach to opposition with the Black Moon between January 10-15. We are eliminating the extent to which that kind of aggression could manifest by imprinting peace and harmony into the energy with the contact to the Black Moon now. So what we put in now will be enhanced later, thus minimizing the effectiveness of potential aggression. You can see how over time, as more and more people become aware of how this works, we overtake the Archontic imprints and change the experience of life.)
