Weavers Hang onto your Cloaks!

This is an Astrology message which recounts the story of the Goddess Asteroids, Weavers of Light, in 2017.

I’m living just as the century ends.

A great leaf, that God and you and I

have covered with writing

turns now, overhead, in strange hands.

We feel the sweep of it like a wind.

 

We see the brightness of a new page

where everything can yet happen.

Unmoved by us, the fates take its measure

and look at one another, saying nothing.

Poem by Rainer Maria Rilke

What happens in the beginning is the pattern that will work itself out in the end. This is always the power of conception. This morning as I begin this adventure plotting the course of the Goddess Asteroids in 2017 the Crescent Moon is moving between Venus and Mars. Last night I saw them glimmering and crisp in a clear sky. The chart time when I have opened my computer places the ascendant at 0 Aquarius and the descendant as 0 Leo. This means that the sign of Aquarius, the collective humanitarian age is rising. Leo the sign of the individual is more hidden. This interplay between Venus and Mars (Sacred Marriage) and the Leo Aquarius (Individual/Collective) axis are important themes which play out this year.

In 2017 there is a beautiful line up of Goddesses Juno, Astraea and Hygeia. I shall refer to them as the ‘Golden Weavers of the Language of Light’ presently in Sagittarius. They are the bringers of the Chalice of the Golden Age. They are weaving new patterns, new languages, new ways of relating. I have included some links at the bottom of women from around the world who are sharing these languages. Strange songs are arising in me like the ancient voice of the earth and I believe this year many people are going to develop such creative gifts they never even dreamed they could have. Listening to others speak the language of light awakens deeply hidden memories in our DNA. These gifts are encoded into our DNA and they bring peace and unity. I have written a lot in 2016 about Weavers in relation to the Dakota people. We will continue to claim the internet as a web, a tool for world peace.

Neptune and Chiron have been healing and dissolving ancestral karma. They have been with the South Node all of 2016 – like a deep tissue massage squeezing out all the pain and suffering into the light. This year Pallas Athena and Chiron continue this journey with the South Node (the Serpents Tail) so the ancestral theme has a specific focus – the healing of the Warrior Woman Archetype. This is an excellent year to develop new forms of leadership which are inclusive and non hierarchical. I will refer to this as ‘The Ancestral Healing’ point in Pisces.

Ceres is still travelling with Uranus and Eris and many astrologers have connected this transit with the shocking changes in world politics of Brexit and Donald Trump to name a few. On the surface there is a worrying trend towards the right. It feels though that these massive cracks in the established system need to happen  – like the Lightening Tower strike – so that the potential for new forms can emerge. It is vitally important now that we are wide awake, letting go of our inhibitions and fears so we can take advantage of this unique time in history.

Vesta the Medicine Woman has just entered Leo and it feels the Dakota protest has also been a catalyst for a new confidence in her archetype. The release of the new Disney film Moana is also perfect, it is the story of the healing of Vesta. Rather than taking direct political action we see now the possibility that we might achieve our global aim for peace through ceremony, prayer, focussed intention through a sacred altar space to work with the invisible forces. In reality working with these invisible forces is more important than what is visible and conscious. There are many people on the Earth at this time able to do this and we are gathering together to raise our collective vibration. I am beginning an advanced course with don Oscar Miro Quesada the Peruvian Shamanic Teacher who has developed the Path of the Universal Shaman. I have also been studying the Gene Keys with Richard Rudd which is another Universal system. These online courses are a very powerful way to create global connection.

In February the Weavers transit the Galactic Centre along with Saturn, who brings form to the creative spark. Saturn is Binah, the Dark Mother who is birthing the Golden Age. This is an awesome energy as the Weavers cross the void of the Black Hole at the Galactic centre, where the song of evolution issues forth. Saturn may also bring obstacles to be overcome but let these hone us into a perfect arrow heads, clear and strong. Do not be silenced by bullies, the time to speak up for yourself is 2017.

Mars and Venus join the ‘Ancestral Point’ to intensify the karmic healing of male/female, head/heart, thoughts/feelings. This will most likely centre around families so its a good year to create a family tree and apply healing balm, songs, incense and love to it. What do we refuse to talk about in our family history? Who are the ghosts? Who and what is banished from your ancestral line? Suicides, abortions, criminals, HIV, gays, esoteric gifts – these are the really painful wounds that the Mother wants to embrace.  Welcome them back in spirit, in your heart. Perhaps they are part of your own history that needs some loving. Unless we allow these banished ghosts into the light they will continue to wreak havoc in the collective subconscious. The new film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them expresses this energetic process beautifully and very much relates to the Vesta archetype.

On the 8th February the Moon and Vesta align with with Sirius  bringing through a special vibration of sacred geometrical energies.

The first Penumbral Lunar Eclipse is on the 10th February visible from the Americas and across the Aquarius Leo axis. This intensifies the alchemical transformation of the Individual to the Collective way of being. This is quite a journey for those brought up in the West. We are quite ingrained in individualism and perceive our problems usually as being down to some kind of personal failure.

The Annular Solar Eclipse on the 26th February sweeps across Chile and Argentina crossing the ocean to Africa. It reaches maximum at Lake Musters and Colhue Huapi in Argentina. I feel this is a very sacred place, I saw the lakes as  ancient rock art in my inner eye, their shape is special and I feel it is significant the eclipse reaches its peak here. When I googled this place it seems just a wasteland now with lots of drilling for oil. As the portal of the eclipse opens it would be a wonderful moment to send healing here. If you can get there even better and if you know anything about its history please share. The eclipse takes place on the ‘Ancestral Healing’ point in Pisces

On 29th March Ceres conjuncts Mars, Mercury, Moon in Taurus and Uranus so there may be some fireworks that day. In April the Golden Weavers move into Capricorn, known in the zodiac as the Gateway of the Third Rebirth (Thrice Born Hermes). This signals a powerful point of increased intensity in the Ascension process. The Weavers begin to journey with Pluto and this is likely to bring their energies into a direct confrontation with patriarchal forces. Those of us on the creative path may meet many internal and external demons. See them for what they are, a last ditch attempt to enslave humanity. Don’t give your power to these forces by becoming despondent. Let the challenge fire your soul to be the bright light in the world you were born to be at this time of darkness in the 3D realm. Saturn is still aligned to the Galactic Centre so the birthing of new forms continues. Saturn and Pluto together influencing the Weavers is going to be interesting and very transformational. Pluto brings always the potential to increase our Power and Saturn our Wisdom.

In May Ceres is still travelling with fiery Mars and enters the sign of Gemini. My feeling is that her transit through Taurus and Gemini this year will bring an intensification of environmental campaigns globally. The voice of the Earth Mother will be be heard in more ways that one, such as through song. The issue of Water is particularly important globally. Saturn forms a number of Grand Trines in Fire to Uranus in Aries this year and the Moon and North node in this special month of May.

In June Pallas Athena in Aries is conjunct Uranus and Venus. What shocks may we expect in this this area? It is a potent time where humanity may cast off the chains of patriarchy and ride this wave of liberation. My feeling is we may see women’s issues in countries such as Nigeria and the Middle East (the Yin nations) in the headlines.  The Sun and Mars then conjunct Ceres so there is an alchemical moulding of yin and yang forces at play. We may see musicians, writers and artists from non-European countries making their mark and healing the world through their stories. Lets encourage and support them in the West (Yang nations). We should remember that countries such as Iraq and Syria are very sacred places on the Globe and the refugee crisis will continue to play out until we as humanity recognise this and give both energetic and physical support (no guns as this perpetuates the karma). In terms of Yin and Yang the eclipses spanning North (Yang) and South (Yin) America are also important this year.

In late June Saturn opposes the Sun whilst conjunct the Galactic Centre and makes its closest transit to Earth. This will be a good time for launching new ideas and courses which have been growing. The energies of Saturn bring longevity to all she touches. Take your time forming new structures this year as they are the foundation on which your creativity can flourish.

In July Vesta conjuncts the North Node, a peak this year for the Medicine Women energies. A Grand Fire Trine forms with Saturn at the Galactic Centre and Uranus in Aries. Pallas Athena has moved back towards Uranus and so this is a key moment for her too. I see in my inner vision women drumming and chanting for peace, a holy sound reaching into the heavens. A great fire burns in the centre and these circles stretch out across the globe. Men are there too and I see them crying to know the loving touch of the Goddess is there and they have no need to be afraid.

August is a very exciting month. Firstly there is a Partial Lunar Eclipse across Indian Ocean and the Leo Aquarius axis on the 7th August.

In the lead up to the Total Solar Eclipse over America, Ceres is conjunct Venus and the Moon on 18-19th August, having just aligned with Sirius, gathering the Divine Feminine to the great portal opening. On the 20th August the Moon then crosses over Mars and into the Eclipse aligned to the Royal Star Regulus, the Heart of the Lion. Both Mercury and Vesta in the early degrees of Virgo are in this powerful energy field too. I hope all you ‘Priestesses’ out there are holding onto your cloaks because this is an awesome year for us. I’m hoping to make my first trip to the USA for this event.

The wonder does not end there though. Through a highly talented Astrologer Norma Tarango, now living in Mexico, I became aware that the path of this eclipse covers two very important parts of a Qabalisitc map of the USA which she visioned. The eclipse runs from Oregon on the Yin line to South Carolina on the Yang line, coast to coast. A link to her website is below.

In September the Weavers have returned to the early degrees of Capricorn with Pluto and start moving forwards again. In this next period the other Goddess Asteroids travel alone, out of the influence of the major planets suggesting they have a period of freedom and respite from the deep transformations this year. Ceres is in watery Cancer, Pallas Athena is earthy Taurus and Vesta in devoted Virgo – all very nurturing signs for these Goddess energies. Ceres moves into Leo on the 24th September. Use September as a period of reflection and consolidation. There is another Venus Mars conjunction in Virgo on the 5th October anchoring the new frequencies of the Divine Feminine and Masculine.

In early November the Golden Weavers are in very tight conjunction with Pluto and each other which may intensify the ascension process again and bring to the surface unfinished business. Pluto brings great challenges when we refuse to let go of who we think we are, but when we surrender we find the bliss point. 8th November is a key date so watch out for what happens in your life and in the news. Mahala has aid Pluto energies are very active in New York this year so it will be interesting to see what develops there.

In December Pallas Athena moves back into Aries for another cavorting with Uranus. This could potentially be very liberating but also explosive. We may decide enough is enough and leave jobs, lovers or whatever is stifling our sense of freedom. The Weavers start moving away from Pluto at this point which suggests as well that our situation may change in quite a profound way. It will however ultimately be to our benefit.

I end with the Winter Solstice where there is a Venus, Saturn alignment with the Sun as it enters Capricorn. I usually visit Bryn Celli Dhu in Wales at this time and it will be my first experience of Venus aligning with the womb space. At this time a very special energy will be born upon the Earth fertilising the new cycle to come. Aho!

May the Weavers thread their gold and silver web above and below you, and keep you safe in these changing times. May your creative spirit soar and may you re-member the gifts of your ancestors. Sing to the water and the birds and they will sing to you. This is my prayer.

Moana ‘Sea Priestess’

This week I have been inspired by the latest Disney film, Moana, the new Polynesian ‘anti-princess’ challenging female stereotypes.

Moana’s story has many magical connections to my own journey, especially the theme of navigating by sea. Through the work of the anthropologist Thor Heyerdahl I became familiar with the history of Moana’s people. Kon-tiki (2014) is a film about the extraordinary journey Heyerdahl took on a raft across the Pacific ocean from South America, to prove that the people of Polynesia came from the West. Heyerdahl said they came from Peru and their god was called Kon-tiki. This is what the shaman had told him in the Polynesian tribe he lived with for a number of years.

The Inca say that these tall, fair gods which include the ‘good guy’ Kon-tiki came from the North. If you are familiar with my blogs you will remember that I’ve been on the trail of these ancient navigators from the Orkney Islands to La Gomera to Anglesey in Wales. I am very excited to be embarking on an advanced course with the Peruvian Shamanic Teacher don Oscar Miro Quesada later this month and so it feels a hoop of ancient memory is being being healed.

Moana sets off to sea to heal the heart of the Earth Goddess with a gem stolen many generations earlier by the trickster god Maui. Moana is told the story by her Grandmother, who is a Medicine Woman who dances with the sea.

The film reflected two of the Goddess Asteroids and their transformation in humanity perfectly. Vesta the sacred priestess archetype is represented firstly by Moana’s grandmother. Moana also has to completely step into her power when she is let down by the Demi-god Maui – in fact in turns out to be her not the god who has to restore the Goddess. This is a very strong Vesta theme – the need to know our own spiritual power and not project this outside ourselves onto a patriarchal god.

In the Earth Goddess we see the rage of mythical Ceres as she ravages the land. As my friend sitting next to me whispered ‘she has a very bad case of PMT’. Eckhart Tolle has an interesting theory that PMT is the collective rage of the repressed Divine Feminine which all women process. This is why we cannot heal the outer world until the Goddess within is restored and honoured in all her dimensions. Moana will go a long way to doing this in the popular culture.

As I have Vesta conjunct Uranus it will be quirky and thought-provoking, strengthening the inner revolution so many of us are experiencing. Please email if you’re like to do the course at astroalison@gmail.com

Below is a link to a review about the film Kon-tiki. It is a gripping and astounding film really worth watching if you are interested in ancient history.

Oti Mabuse – African Phoenix Bird

South African dancer, Oti Mabuse, has risen from the ashes of Apartheid to take her place as a Shining Star in the world of dance. In the latest season of ‘Strictly Come Dancing’, she has become renowned for her incredible choreography and her ability to bring out the best in her partner Danny Mac. To see the electricity between them, their perfect synchronisation and the friendship which has grown between them over this series has been beautiful to watch.

I am 20 years older than Oti, born in Johannesburg in 1970. Had she been born in my generation life may not have been so kind to her. This is why my heart so deeply applauds that she has risen from the many wounds and ancestral problems Apartheid, which means ‘separation’, caused. Had Oti been born in 1970 under Apartheid the following laws would have applied.

  1. It was illegal to marry or have relationships across racial boundaries and people were vicious if you tried it. I once nearly got beaten up as a teenager for holding my African boy friend’s hand in public.
  2. When you went into shops there was a White side and a Black side.
  3. Children were educated separately so friendships across racial boundaries were rare.
  4. African people lived in Townships away from White people and usually in shocking conditions e.g in shacks with no sewerage or electricity. Indian and ‘mixed race’ people also lived in Townships but you it was deeply segregated. You had to get a special permit if you were African and wanted to enter the Indian area.
  5. African children were educated to be servants, not to think for themselves or to have careers. They were taught in Afrikaans, not their native language and art was banned. This seemed particularly cruel as creativity expressed through song, dance and theatre is so intrinsic to African culture.

The first glimpse I had of Oti’s real courage was when they got the highest marks ever for a Samba. Oti choreographed this in a very ‘tribal’ way with traditional music. Danny Mac said he had never ‘let go’ so much in his life. This felt like a real reclaiming of Oti’s African tribal heritage and it was FAB-U-LOUS.  In their show dance last night Oti went barefoot and this too evoked for me African dance – feet moving in perfect rhythm across the Red Earth, the oldest continent. Sometimes it can take generations for people to heal from war – low expectations is one of the more hidden
psychological wounds many of us carry. I felt uplifted and in awe as I saw Oti rise like the Phoenix Bird from the ashes.

I was delighted that Ori did so well. Of course I wanted Oti and Danny to win but Ori was gorgeous. His parents were there from Nigeria to see him. It was a wonderful night for the healing of African people, the unity of Black and White, the Male and Female which symbolically is the healing of the whole world.

This Hubble Space Telescope image shows Sirius A, the brightest star in our nighttime sky, along with its faint, tiny stellar companion, Sirius B. Astronomers overexposed the image of Sirius A [at centre] so that the dim Sirius B [tiny dot at lower left] could be seen. The cross-shaped diffraction spikes and concentric rings around Sirius A, and the small ring around Sirius B, are artifacts produced within the telescope’s imaging system. The two stars revolve around each other every 50 years. Sirius A, only 8.6 light-years from Earth, is the fifth closest star system known. Sirius B, a white dwarf, is very faint because of its tiny size, only 12,000 kilometres in diameter. White dwarfs are the leftover remnants of stars similar to our Sun. They have exhausted their nuclear fuel sources and have collapsed down to a very small size. Sirius B is about 10,000 times fainter than Sirius A. The Mayan Dreamspell Calendar was gifted from Sirius to assist Human Evolution and return us to our true nature as Guardians of the Earth.

Astrology of the Constitution of Standing Rock 1959 (3 of 3)

Researching Standing Rock Reservation from England it was important that I find the history written  from a Native American Point of view. I found a PDF online by LaDonna Brave Bull Allard which is where I got the information for these blogs.

It struck me that the date the Sioux themselves formed a Constitution for the Standing Rock Reservation on the 24th April 1959 was particularly important. The Astrology for this date illuminates the greater cosmic patterns unfolding, especially when considered in relation to the planetary movements today.

The Constitution was signed on a day when the Moon was conjunct Ceres (Mother Goddess) and Jupiter in the last degrees of Scorpio. This is a very important part of the zodiac as it’s the place of emergence from the cosmic underworld. It is also symbolically a ‘Black Snake’ in the heavens. It is therefore highly syncronistic that what lies in this part of the zodiac today is a conjunction of Astraea, Hygeia and Juno. In a nutshell what this frequency represents is the Golden Age of Sacred Arts and Natural Rhythms being rebirthed. The equality of men and women is also very important. I have been involved in many political struggles in my life but what is different about Standing Rock is that it is unequivably spiritual and creativity plays a central role in the way the Sioux express themselves. This is what gives it the Goddess touch.

The other wonderful aspect in the 1959 chart is that the North Node is aligned to Pallas Athena and Juno in Libra. This feels a harmonious expression of the Warrior Goddess and Sacred Lover energies – as if what would be born at Standing Rock was the celebration of the strength and power of women and equality with men. Jupiter has been transiting this part of the zodiac so we could expect an expansion of this consciousness now. This is further echoed in that Pallas Athena is transiting Chiron the Wounded Healer at the time the Constitution was signed. There is a strong energy present of the healing of the wounds of the archetypal Warrior Women.

In the blog for the founding of the Standing Rock Reservation I mentioned a very rare conjunction of Pluto, Uranus and Saturn at 3 degrees Taurus. What is interesting is that the Sun was also at 3 degrees Taurus when the constitution was formed connecting these two dates. The light and warmth of Father Sun was shining upon the previously very challenging patriarchal energies. Standing Rock in its name is very much the energy of Taurus, the Fixed Earth sign of the zodiac.

Finally, there is a Vesta return happening now – Vesta being in the same place in the zodiac as she was in April 1959 which is pretty awesome. Vesta is the archetypal Priestess or Medicine Woman. Even more importantly she helps us to re-member that we find our pathway to Spirit through our hearts – not through a male authority who gives us permission. This is a very special time for Priestesses, Medicine Women and the Power of Prayer. I know my fellow Sisters and Brother Shamans of Celtic, Viking and other enthnicities of the British Isles Stand with you at Standing Rock. Ho!

Love and Blessings
