Wow, what an intense time! Today we have the full moon on the Aries/Libra axis, and I don’t know about you, but things are buzzing with energy and potential. Eclipses occur in pairs, and this is the second in the set, the follow up to the eclipse on spring equinox. While the theme of that eclipse was tying up loose ends and bringing things to closure, the theme of this one is new beginnings and potential. What is very profound to me is that this is occurring the day before the Christian holy day of Easter. Coincidence? I think not. Well, actually, I know better, so let me clarify for those of you that might not be aware.
Most of the Christian holy days are astrologically timed, and thus the link between astrology and Christianity is exposed. Christianity uses astrology quite frequently, even though this point may not overtly be discussed and some even go so far as to live in denial about this fact. The best example of this is Easter. There is a formula for figuring out when Easter occurs, so for those of you that would like to know without waiting to find out; you can figure it out for yourself. Easter occurs on the first Sunday after the first full moon after spring equinox. Thus you have the full moon today and Easter tomorrow. While the theme of Easter is resurrection, this, too, is the theme of today’s full moon.
Aries is all about new beginnings, and Libra is about justice and right and proper relationships, so what you have when you think about it are new beginnings in a fair and just way. You could say a “karmic” way, but that would be a bit of a misnomer because karma isn’t a bank account to fill up, but rather it is fluid and much more complex than that.
This final point leads me to the big news of the moment. Monday, the day after Easter, my first full book “Vocal Magick” will officially be released, published by Immanion Press! Wow! What an accomplishment! Yes, I will be writing more, but this is so effin’ cool! Thus watch for promotions, book signings, etc. In there I discuss the power and use of the voice and language as a magical tool to create your reality. Usually this is only discussed in passing or only in very specialized ways (such as mantras, vibration of god names from the western esoteric tradition, etc), but in this book I take a more living, general approach to application of certain principles.
The other big news is that my first webinar was a wonderful success! We had an excellent time discussing psychic self-defense, and there are more on the horizon. Watch my website for more information.
During this auspicious time, it would be wise to look around at your life and see where it’s time for new beginnings, but also what it would be wise to resurrect back to life in the inner life. It’s also wise to watch for situations to unfold that are very just and fair. The trick to working with this concept, though, is to also see when this may be working against us due to our own actions. This takes a particular skill because it requires the setting aside of the ego.
So, what will you resurrect? How will you begin anew for this new year?
