The Age Of The Crone

The Crone is also an archetypal figure, a Wise Woman. She is marginalized by her exclusion from the reproductive cycle,[1] and her proximity to death places her in contact with occult wisdom. As a character type, the crone shares characteristics with the hag.~ Wikipedia Aging. It happens to us all. Women all inevitably move into the age of the Crone.   We’re born, we grow, we learn, we teach, we shrink, we die.   It’s a part of the human experience.   As a woman we move into the age of the Crone as we pass through menopause. Our body changes, our mind changes. It’s a major life shift. For me it has also been a major spiritual shift.   Under the Patriarchy the age of the Crone has for too long been marginalized. Often portrayed as malicious or sinister.   In Wicca she symbolizes ‘the Dark Goddess, the dark of the moon, the end of a cycle’ and in some ‘New Age’ circles this is portrayed as a time of freedom, wisdom and personal power. (Wikipedia). And we all have her within us, men and women.   I’m 53. Very much in Menopause. My cycles have ended and my reproductive years have gone. I now not only feel my body changing I also feel my soul and spirit changing. And the messages I am receiving are to embrace and to celebrate this time.   In an astrological reading from a mentor I am reminded to become the elder and to teach the wisdom I have gleaned. In a dream I buried my child self, although I was actually...

Unexpected Changes and New Beginnings

At the start of this month we had both the fourth of seven Pluto/Uranus squares AND a Hybrid Solar New Moon Eclipse at 11 degrees of Scorpio. For many reasons this was a pivotal moment. For some, me included, that shift was not what we planned or expected. But let’s quickly look at the Astrology first. I promise to try not to overwhelm!   The Pluto/Uranus square was, as I said, the fourth of seven exact squares. You can see when the others were and will be at http://www.lunarplanner.com/Uranus-Pluto-Square/. In Capricorn (Pluto) and Aries (Uranus) respectively these squares are bringing up hidden matters and creating upheaval and sudden changes at a personal and a Global level. I won’t go into depth about the Global changes as I want to talk about the Square and the Chakras. Or at least this latest square and the heart Chakra. On the Radical Virgo blog, Joyce Mason reports that Serbian astrologer Aleksandar Imsiragic said that the seven exact hits of Uranus square Pluto, the first on June 24 2012, correspond to realignment of our seven chakras. This last square, therefore corresponds to the heart Chakra. Hold that thought while I also mention the Eclipse.   Firstly New Moons represent new beginnings and many of us set intentions on the New Moon. Secondly this was an Eclipse also which means it is an uber powerful time of new beginnings. Thirdly this was a Hybrid New Moon Eclipse which means it was conjunct the North Node of the Moon, the North Node of Fate, our karmic potential. Therefore this represented a leap into our souls...
The Power of Scorpio

The Power of Scorpio

We probably all know by now that we are in Mercury Retrograde. In fact I wrote about it in Mercury Retrograde and First World Problems. In Scorpio this is powerful and deep and the Scorpio energy is about to get stronger so I thought it was time to write about the power of Scorpio generally and how to manage and benefit from this energy.   Later today (22nd October 2013) the sun will move into Scorpio shining it’s light on this powerful energy. We’ll have Sun, North Node of Fate, Saturn and Mercury all in this powerful water sign. And then, on Nov 3 we also have a Solar Eclipse at 11 degrees Scorpio. Added to this, Scorpios ruler Pluto is in a powerful square with Uranus in Aries. I’ll go more into what each of these means over time in my weekly video reports that I email out to my subscribers so if you want even more information about this and other upcoming energies sign up now over on the right!   As I said in my previous post we are being asked to have some really deep, deep reflection time right now. But reflect on what?   Enough of the astrology and more about the feeling because Scorpio IS a water sign and is ALL about feeling.   Scorpio energy is about deeply bonded relationships. It’s about power and powerlessness. It’s passion and resourcefulness. It’s intensity and magnetism. It’s manipulation and obsession. It’s jealousy and loyalty. Scorpio is deeply sensitive and intuitive. Scorpio is secretive and private.   Scorpio is the realm of the deep psyche, therapy,...

The Dark Of The Moon and Intentions

I find I am in a deeply introspective mood as we lead up to the New Moon in Virgo on Thursday morning. This is the dark of the moon, the balsamic phase, and is an important time of rest and rejuvenation.   Intuition and creativity is high, physical energy is low and sleep is important. I am pulled to dream and meander. If I follow the lunar cycles and choose to honor this time I go within and allow my deep intuition to tell me what no longer serves and what I want to manifest in my life.   This is the dreamtime when all the energies of the universe swirl around our own energies. This is when we can create real beauty and abundance in our lives. This is a time to break free of that which holds us back.   As I tune into these phases more and more I instinctively know what needs to end. I brought three things in my life to an end in the last couple of days. Things that no longer serve. Things that, having gone, will open up space for the new in my life. Things that will create freedom to move forward.   And now I dream of my intentions. Before I sleep tomorrow night (Wednesday night) I shall have written my intentions to the universe for the next cycle. My dreams of abundance in all areas of my life and my dreams of changes I want to make in my life. I shall remember that the New Moon is in Virgo with a focus on service, being of use...
