Lughnasadh / Imbolg And The Blue Moon

Lammas Blue Moon

Lammas Blue Moon

The Celtic Holiday Of Lugh Under The Blue Moon

Tonight in the Northern Hemisphere many Pagans will be celebrating the 1st harvest festival of the season, Lughnasadh, also known as Lammas. In the Southern Hemisphere Pagans are celebrating Imbog.

This is an exciting time for Pagans. As the sun sets on July 31st Northern Pagans will honor the Sun and his blessings upon the gardens and fields.  Lughnasadh is known as a Fire Festival and celebrates the Celtic hero Lugh as the Sun God who saved Ireland from its oppressors. Freeing the people from slavery and ensuring the land would always be fertile and abundant.

In the Southern Hemisphere, Imbolg can be seen as a celebration of the return of the Sun or “the return of the light from the dark of winter”. It is also associated with the slow return of spring (in this case early spring), when new life is formed. This makes the holiday one of the Fertility festivals for the new season.

But tonight we complement these observances under a special event, the arrival of a Blue Moon!

A Blue Moon occurs when a full moon falls within a single month twice. For July 2015, the first full moon fell on July 1st. Today on July 31st, we’ll once again see the full moon in the evening sky. Technically the Moon hit its full phase at 6:46am eastern U.S. time. In the world of energy, the moon’s effects can be felt 3 days prior to its official phase and 3 days after. And of course the closer you are to the ‘official’ phase time, the stronger the energy will be.

Keep in mind however, that the ancients who lived by the moon didn’t have the luxury of Naval Observatory and precision clocks the way we do today. For them, the official time was sunset when Grandmother Moon bathed Mother Earth with her loving glow.

In some pagan traditions the phases of the moon represent the transition of knowledge within the Triple Goddess. The quarter moons representing the Maiden Goddess, the New Moon the Mother Goddess, the Full Moon the Grand Mother Goddess (which maybe one reason we refer to the moon as “Grandmother Moon”). The Blue Moon then is seen as the transition of the Grandmother or Crone to the Divine level of existence. She becomes an expression of the evolution of wisdom, as well as an example of the circle of life. She moves from a tangible wise old Crone to a spiritual energy within the Divine force of the universe. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Eight of Pentacles

The Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti  - Eight of Pentacles

The Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti

Count the blessings you have in your circle. Study the patterns around you and make changes as necessary. Those who can’t or won’t get away from the negative comments or put downs don’t need to be in your Universe. Let them go and move on. It’s time for banishing the unwanted negativity and cleaning house to make room for your positive growth and success. You’ve worked to hard not to move forward with joy.


Additional Insight:

Tonight’s Blue Moon is a great time to review your current status, the situations you’re presently in and those energies that influence your world. The things you don’t like, that bring you down, that make you feel angry, uncomfortable or irritated need to be pushed aside so you can move on. You need room to grow!

You no longer need the nay-sayers in your world. You’ve changed and your attitude is not the same as it used to be. So why are you keeping those negative people in your life who keep pulling you back into their darkness. It only attracts more struggle strife into your world. Do you really need more of that?

Remember words have energy. The negative put downs, the disrespect of others and their views, the shallow comments about appearances and looks have no place in your Universe now. Everyone is the perfect reflection of the Divine in their lives. The spiritual beings before you are beautiful no matter what form they’re packaged in. Those jokes at someone elses expense are pulling you into a circle of negative thought and action. What goes around comes around. You sure that’s where you want to be? Do you know what they’re saying about you, behind your back?

Time to take the next step and have a talk with those you care about who are still living in the past. Let them know how you’ve changed and what you want in your world today. If they can’t grow and overcome their negativity, then it’s time to leave them behind and move forward to better things. Offer to help them change. Point out how their negativity manifests in their world making it harder than needs be. Maybe they want to make a difference, but don’t know how.

You are what you surround yourself with. If you want to be respected, then you need to give respect. If you want to be treated with kindness, you need to treat others with kindness. It doesn’t matter if those you’re talking down hear you or not. You’re putting the energy out there and surrounding yourself with it’s vibration. Make sure you’re cloaked in love and compassion and that’s what you’ll bring into your life. And into everything that comes back to you.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Five of Pentacles – Inverted

The Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti - Five of Pentacles: Inverted

The Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti

Remember what goes around, comes around. Speak from the heart and show your compassion. Others may still be struggling and could use a kind word while they’re going through healing. Listen and give them an outlet for their fear and frustration. Remember when you only needed someone to listen? Give something back and be that compassionate person today.


Additional Insight:

Sometimes life can become overwhelming and no one knows this better than you. Remember when you wanted someone to listen to you and there wasn’t anyone there? You didn’t want someone to fix things, or tell you what to do, or make suggestions, because you’ve already done that and more. You simply wanted someone to talk to.

There are people around you who are still struggling and going through the depths of despair. And they need someone to listen. Don’t cut them off or run away from their drama because you don’t want to hear the sorrow. That’s probably what people said when you needed to cry.

Give something back from what you learned. The compassion you show to others will go a long way to creating healing and ease the fears and sadness they have bottled up inside. That good deed will come back around and reward your kindness. It doesn’t take any effort to listen or hold someone’s hand with compassion. If you share what you did and how you got through the worst days, you might ease their anxiety. Even if it’s only for a moment.

Remember words have energy and sometimes getting them out can make room for healing to take place. As you share and listen, you might benefit from the exchange as well. No one should hold onto anger or resentment of any measure. So you too can let it out and release it from your world. Those past emotions do not serve you well today.

None of us are an island living alone in the world. Not by a long shot. We may not need or want others to fix our problems, but we could use a little help now and again for someone to listen. Sometimes we just need someone to talk to. Even if it’s only so we can let out the heavy negativity and feel a little uplifted to fight another day.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Nine of Wands – Inverted

The Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti

The Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti

Nothing behind you is going to serve you well today. Trying to reach back and recover something you want in your life now, will not bring the desired result. Stop being stubborn and let go of those items or people who have no place or purpose for you now. You’re not the same person you were then. There are better and brighter opportunities in front of you.


Additional Insight:

You’re not the same person today as you were last year, or the years before that. Let go of the past and allow yourself to move on to bigger and better things. The past only holds strife, stress and danger. Don’t let that person or situation from your dark days come into your life now. They only bring struggle and pain.

Even if you try to surgically grapple through the negativity to recover what you’ve lost, you’re going to get shocked. It’s not worth it. And you’ll bring back the pain and hurt you’ve worked so hard to recover from. You know in your heart that others haven’t changed their ways. So don’t let them manipulate your kindness or your heart.

Forgive the past, forgive the attempt to manipulate you again. Then let go and move on. In some cases it’s not going to be easy. But remember you can’t learn lessons for other people. You can’t save those who don’t want to be saved. Don’t let their insistence fool you, they may be trying to change, but they’re not there yet. And you don’t want to be there when they fail; again.

There’s a reason these things or people are in your past. All the signs were there telling you about the changes that needed to occur. The messages you ignored, turned out to be the hardest situations of all to get through. Don’t put yourself through all that again. Don’t allow yourself to be dragged into a world that will constantly tempt you to fall back to old patterns and destructive actions. It really isn’t worth it and you certainly don’t need it in your new world today.

Use your passion to work for the future and attract the more positive rewards you deserve. Say a final good-bye to the past and see this as a test. Have you really changed and overcome? I know you have. But do you? Follow your gut instincts and make your choices carefully. Don’t get dragged into a long transition. Cut the ties cleanly and get away now. Close the door on the past and say a great big hello to your bright and magikal future. It’s ready and waiting for you to arrive. The only answer today is to walk forward and turn your back on the past. So turn around, take a deep breath, put one foot in front of the other and welcome the new life you have in front of you.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Two of Pentacles – Inverted

The Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti  - Two of Pentacles - Inverted

The Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti

Keep your eye on the bigger picture. These little things are simply part of daily life. They’re not the mountains you’re fearing them to be. You’re not going back to the beginning, and you don’t have to worry about drowning in the sea of despair. Those days are over. But you’re not ready to live a champagne life either. So manage your resources appropriately and things will be fine.


Additional Insight:

You’re not going backwards or repeating the struggles you’ve already overcome. What has crossed your path this week is nothing more the daily responsibilities of life. Don’t make them out to be more than they are. You merely have to take control of your world and manage the maintenance of living.

Security and sustainability require constant oversight. You can’t ignore the routine or expect someone else to take care of it for you. Life means being responsible for your self and what needs to be addressed and taken care of to life in this world.

This isn’t a time to feel like you’re being overwhelmed. It’s not a time to grovel and cry why me! It’s not just you. Everyone has bills to pay, everyone has things they must take care of to survive. Unlike everyone else, you’ve gotten through some pretty rough times and you’ve survived. You endured hardship, you fought through stress and strife and you survived. You are stronger for it and you know what needs to be done.

But don’t allow those past struggles to hang on your back like a sack of rocks. Don’t become jaded and see every piece of mail, letter or package as another great challenge that you’ll never get through. This isn’t that! So stop setting up worry and anxiety over the little things. They’re not the mountains you’re trying to make them out to be. They’re simply part of the world you have chosen to live in and are required to sustain your environment.

Do what needs to be done. Fill out the paperwork, talk to who needs to be contacted and live up to your responsibilities. Everything will get resolved and probably in your favor. There’s no reason to be anxious over the little things. All you will do is attract more of the same anxiety to your door and then you will fall back by creating self fulfilling prophecy.

Everything happens for a reason in its right time and place. Sometimes that reason is to teach you responsibility for every day living.  Welcome to adulthood. Now grow up and take responsibility for your own life.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Four of Wands

The Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti - Four of Wands

The Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti

Showing compassion and respect to all things is the key to living in concert with the world around you. Be brave and stand up to the inappropriate comments that others make. It might be a joke, but it’s not funny if it propagates intolerance and hate. Stand up for peace, acceptance and compassion. Walk your talk and be careful how you “like”, “share” and support the voices of others.


Additional Insight:

There aren’t many things worse than being a hypocrite. You can’t talk a good talk and proclaim your side of the argument is the only perspective and built on love and compassion, then turn around and spread visceral intolerance. So be careful who you judge today.  You could be showing your true colors and place the biggest judgement on yourself.

Our world has become a culture of fear mongering in order to gain favor one side of the argument over the other. Spreading hate, intolerance, and a deep seeded agitation for anything that’s different. It’s easier to scare others and destroy bridges that have been made to advance the journey.

But it takes real work and contemplation to build something that lasts through the ages. Creation is a difficult task. That’s why those who don’t have the fortitude want you paying attention to the anxiety. They don’t have the answers, but they’re greedy for the control the creation enjoys. They simply don’t know how, or don’t want to work for it.

Don’t be the person who perpetuates the problem or shines a light on the failure. Be the one who has the answers to possible solutions that create harmony and abundance. Be the one who isn’t afraid to try or who reaches out to the other side to find the common ground that builds compromise for the differences.

“A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus.” Martin Luther King, Jr.

Use your strengths to lead by example, be the hero that stands up to the laziness of others who use rhetoric to control the situation. Don’t be afraid to offer solutions and share your insights and wisdom today. You might be very surprised at how far your ideas can take you and where it might lead.

Be the example of your own ideas and put them into practice. Lead by doing the work yourself and showing others how easy it can be done. You’ll end the day with a peaceful heart and the respect of many.

A Little Numerological Insight:
This is the 1430th post on Reflections and for some reason that number caught my attention.

If you’ve seen my number insights before you know that Mathematics is the only language shared by all humans regardless of culture, religion, or gender. Numerology is the study of the divine or mystical relationship between a count or measurement and life. It has many systems and traditions and beliefs. My practice of numerology is Shamanistic Numerology that’s based on Celtic and North American Shamanistic teachings. It’s not the only method, the best method or the true method. It’s simply one of many methods and one that resonates most with me and my personal perspectives of the Divine and the world we live in.

A quick review; Prime numbers are those numbers that are specific to you, your birthday, social security or other numbers that will stick with you throughout your lifetime. Sub-Prime numbers are numbers associated with you that change over time. Your phone number, an employee number, drivers license number and other things like that.  A date falls into the category of Sub-Prime, because it only comes around once and quickly changes to the next day in the scheme of your lifetime.

From a Shamanistic Numerology standpoint, today’s number is a Sub-Prime number and as a numerical number it represents the spiritual aspect of the day.

Actual Derived Calculated
1430 1+4+3+0 8

Eight – The number of infinity, the infinite possibilities, breaking barriers, always moving.

  • This number is associated with Pluto.
  • This number is associated with the Hawthorne Tree.
  • This number is associated with the Deer.
  • It represents our ability to strive for things, be they personal, family, professional.
  • Positive Direction: When 8 is in your life it can represent a time to strive on, use innovation to overcome challenges. Endurance is a big thing with the number 8, as that effort to continue can bring great success in physical matters of profession, abundance and finance.
  • Negative Direction: In reverse 8 can indicate stagnation, constantly digging a hole that’s hard to get out of. Refusal to see how patterns create dis-ease and strife. Always giving up because there’s too much in the way.

Well that does seem fitting for today’s message.
