Farmers Connect to Save Family Farming

Portrait of Liz Pleasant Our country’s small-scale family farms, once the core of many communities, are in jeopardy. Older farmers are retiring, but the high cost of land makes it tough for young ones to take their place.This week, we explore intergenerational projects providing help through apprenticeships and succession planning so that farmers—old and new—can connect with each other. Cooperation across the generations may be the key to keeping family farms prosperous for years to come.

“Holding the Line: Virgo 2014 Cycle”

Friday, September 5, 2014

Gibbous Moon Phase: trust

Moon in Capricorn/Aquarius

Ruling Mahavidya: Shodashi (The Goddess Who Creates Form) and Matangi (Goddess of the Wind)

Skill: ask for the fulfillment of your highest desire

Negative Imprint: false fronts, dissatisfaction, disappointment, unfair compromise, disconnection, vanity, denial

Positive Imprint: receptivity, peace, vivid experience, heritage, tradition, manifestation, purity, ensconced, strength, imagination

We have a day of high magical potential on tap today, so we want to take full advantage of the energy.

The magical time of the cycle begins today with the Gibbous Moon phase. We have double-Gibbous (double magical) energy because overall this month is like a month-long Gibbous phase. The Gibbous Moon phase of a Gibbous cycle is doubly potent for manifesting intention. Our powers of visualization are heightened during Gibbous phases. So today we will envision (picture with our mind’s eye) what we want to experience. Visualize this in a personal way and in a global way. If you made a “Wish Board” back at the New Moon in Aries (March/April 2014), revisit it today. Change it up, add to it, or keep it the same.

The point is to focus some energy on stating or impressing intention. What do you want to tell the universe?

Three themes repeat in the Sabian symbols for the degrees of the planets’ locations today: idealization, inner knowledge, and truth.

With the theme of idealization, we tend to become preoccupied with absolutes. Few things are truly absolute. One of the greatest traits of humanity is our imagination. It is easy for us to create in our minds what we think would be ideal. We just as easily delude ourselves into seeing things the way we want to see them. We get hung up on chasing an ideal and ignore all signs to the contrary. We lock in. The key is to understand that there are many variations of what is ideal, and these variations evolve through time.

So it is good to have definite intentions to state to the universe today, but unwise to assume that the result will appear in the exact way we want. Shodashi teaches us this. She works very hard to bring us into closer alignment with our true course – our destiny. It’s a complex undertaking because the trajectories of everyone are involved. Moving one person’s “line” affects everyone else’s line. Her job becomes easier as more and more people align with nature and natural world order. There is less to untangle.

The theme of inner knowing repeats throughout the energy of the symbols today. Calling upon inner knowledge is the way to handle anything that crops up today. Consult sources that always provide what you need (certain books, cards, oracles, divination tools, letters, poems, songs, nature, etc.). Inner knowledge is passed from generation to generation and humanity has a long history from which to draw. The knowledge of our ancestors is alive in our cells. Everything we need to know is inside and corroborated by sources on the outside.

The third theme, truth, underlies our motivations today. Truth crystallizes right before our eyes. It may come in the form of a wild confrontation with the true self or the true self of another. Everyone will see what they are capable of seeing/what they want to see. Minds that are deeply infected will rise toward lunacy as the Full Moon approaches.

What do you want to do with all of your magical powers today?

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

New Moon Phase: beginning, projection, emergence, intention

Moon: Virgo

Ruling Mahavidya: Shodashi

Welcome to the New Moon in Virgo! And if you can guess from this photo, it’s going to be a wild ride! Special thanks to wise owl Christine V who sent this photo when I asked for people to find beauty and snap a shot. There was a photo out there that encapsulated what Shodashi had in store this month and this photo is it. Her caption: “I thought this was going to be a sunset photo…but it seems to have exploded.” Indeed.
The Sun is not going to explode, but Shodashi is and this is what it looks like – an explosion of light.

I’ve struggled for some time now about how to explain what would happen during the Virgo month. We need to look at this from two perspectives (indicated by Venus and Eris in opposition close to the Eris Point at the New Moon). Let’s break it down into two levels, the macro and the micro and then see how they integrate. Along the way, we’ll see how both are happening together.

First the macro level, or the world at large: I’ve discussed how the Mahavidyas Dhumavati and Bhairavi have worked to release trauma and heart pain these past couple of months. But the story doesn’t end there. The Mahavidya Shodashi has collected all of the pain that was released (pain that was caused by Archontic interference and intrusion) and directs it now back to its source, the one responsible – the chief Archon or, as the Gnostics term it, the Demiurge. Shodashi defends humanity by redirecting back all of the pain and suffering that we have released. This is why our own work these last two months has been so important and so effective. It is a collaborative effort to free us from the enslavement of our hearts and minds and to free us from what keeps us locked out of love with life. Our imposed obsession with thanatos (death) comes to an end. The power of the Demiurge and his minions takes a serious blow from Shodashi.

The majority of her work in this regard has already happened. Her strike, a flaming arrow of obsidian, has been a pre-emptive one, launched over the past two weeks to minimize damage from the Archontic agenda, which was poised and ready to launch the next world war under the Black Moon-Pluto energy. This didn’t happen (yet) because Shodashi prevented it from happening. It was actually a joint effort. Enough of humanity is awake enough to call out a directive for an end to the enslavement. Everyone understands the enslavement at their own level. I see it as the enslavement of consciousness. Some see it as enslavement by politicians. It doesn’t matter because the idea is the same: the desire for freedom from control, which is the desire for life itself.

Which leads us into the micro level, or our own lives. Shodashi grants the greatest desire of our higher selves. She sees beyond the physical into the cosmic and she sees not just the best in us, but our grandest potential. Under Shodashi’s energy whatever we feel is impossible becomes visibly possible. She is vast and she is complete. Some of the Mahavidyas are “scary fierce” and edgy. Shodashi has an edge, but it is soft. She likes harmony and cosmic balance and she lives in beauty. She is not only the Goddess Who Grants Highest Desire, she is desire. She is not only the Goddess Who Is Beautiful in All Worlds, she is beauty. Beauty is what she is most concerned with, and she brings beauty to our lives when she dominates a lunar month.

As I’ve mentioned, what we want for our lives is not necessarily what is best for our lives, so this month requires a great deal of trust to accept that whatever is happening is happening for your highest and best. I will beat this drum a lot over the month so we won’t forget. (Remember that Shodashi is the drummer in the band of the Mahavidyas. Repetition and solidity are thematic this month. Does it have to be beaten into our heads?)

I will record an audio soon to cover Shodashi’s energy more thoroughly and to go into more detail about how this will play out in the macro and micro levels. That will be a great honor for me because how cool is it to be able to herald the fall of the Demiurge and the beginning of the end of humanity’s enslavement? The begining of the end of our enslavement…can you imagine?
