On 11.11.11 at 11:11  for 11 minutes I will engage in prayer and meditation, feeding the fire and holding the vision for a new birth.  I hope you join me and millions of others who will be turning up the transformational heat through meditations, ceremonies, and gatherings. We all have a part, no matter how small, in this creative moment.  We are at a transformational moment in history, where what we think and do makes more difference than it ever has before. The challenges we face as a planet can seem overwhelming, and the tendency is to shutdown and ignore it all. But for 11.11.11. we need to look at the reality of our situation right in the eye, for the truth of the matter is the fuel for our alchemical transformation. In Alchemy you join together two opposites that are represented by the King and Queen, the Sun and Moon. This union occurs in a crucible which is heated with a creative fire. From that union of opposites a new birth appears. We are right now, at this moment, heating up the crucible so that the opposing forces in our world can be united for a new birth.
Shift of the Ages
In order to move through this transformational period, Taurus asks that we acknowledge the “truth of the matter.” For the first time in history we have the ability to destroy our planet. For thousands of years and hundreds of civilizations we have engaged in cycles of war, economic crisis, and social injustice that appear to be the way we humans typically interact. But today, with our advanced technology, we now are creating a level of destruction that could be impossible to repair. We are destroying our drinking water, our land, our ocean,  our crops, our atmosphere, our environment, and our weather. No matter which story you believe- the Mayan Calendar, Native prophecies,  Christian Apocalypse, or messages from space being – the truth is obvious to anyone paying attention to right here and right now. The stakes have never been higher and it is time to act.
We are the ones we have been waiting for.
11.11.11 is reminding us of the importance of these times and is a lead-in to 12.21.12  We are all here on the planet at this time in history to participate in directing the energy of our hearts, minds, and planetary powers towards something that will be helpful and healing for everyone. Greed is not a virtue. Love is. One day in the far future when I am asked what I was doing during the birth of a new age, I want to be able to answer that I was part of the process of assisting the shift of our planet to one of sustainability and unity. We all have a part to play, and regardless of how small it is, it matters.

Full Moon in Taurus

Taurus by Augusta Lucas-Andreae www.rosemandala.com

Thursday, November 10, 2011

During this Full Moon you have the opportunity to find the union between Scorpio Sun and Taurus Moon. Scorpio pushes to the surface a desire for meaningful transformation. Connected to the underworld by its association with Pluto, Scorpio has the heat of deep volcanoes and molten lava. This is the energy we are harnessing now at the Full Moon. This is the fire of passion that heats the crucible and brings the opposites into union. This month you can unite the opposing forces with your passionate desire for a better world.

The Full Moon is in Taurus. An earth sign, Taurus reminds us of the value of realistic appraisals and practical action. It is the ground upon which we walk, the earth upon which we live, the soil and water from which we produce. Taurus the Bull is patient, but powerful. It stands its ground until threatened, and then it charges, full force, into action. Right out of nowhere, things change. Taurus is reminding us to pay attention. Notice what is really happening, be aware of the truth of the matter. Taurus is providing us with the container, the crucible, for our transformation. Taurus has alerted all the earth creatures to help us in shifting our consciousness so that we see the bigger picture, and acknowledge our responsibility is not only to ourselves, but also to the next seven generations

To Do: As you meditate on this beautiful mandala notice that it contains images for Taurus. See the Bull, joined at the center in Notice the abundance of plants and flowers, surrounded by the symbol for Venus, goddess of Love. Let yourself be pulled down into the earth, feel its richness, its patience, its ability to give us life and growth. Imagine a rich and fertile world where we are all pregnant with possibility.
