Welcome back to another episode of Stars, stones and stories. Were gathered here for episode number 75 within the maverick momentum of this Aquarius season, and on this day this Venus day the 20th of January we have the sun shifting into the sign of Aquarius. This occurs at 3:29am Eastern Standard Time. This is a very potent Aquarius season as we will be soon welcoming in the Aquarius New Moon, Lunar Imbolc and the year of the rabbit within the Chinese New Year. Also we have Uranus shifting direct. And in just a few days after that we have Venus moving into Pisces. So there's a lot of really profound changes. And at this time and space, we have completed the Mercury and Mars Retrogrades. Both of these Retrogrades are still being worked out so to say as Mercury does not clear the shadow until about the first week of February. And then Mars will clear the retrograde shadow in the third week of March. So we're finding our way and as we're finding our way on this Venus day we have the sun at the helm of really bringing us more deeply into Aquarius season and both Venus and Saturn are coming to marry in Aquarius in the later degrees as we welcome this Aquarius season. With Aquarius season the Collective's identity and purpose is shifting into this transpersonal realm that's becoming more curious and awake and aware to collective energy. And going into this space and place of innovation and inspiration and being wildly unique, being open to Maverick philosophy, while also really being more attuned to futuristic fantasy. This is a very significant shift for us as soon Pluto will be going into Aquarius and we are definitely seeing artificial intelligence come more and more online and our lives have become quite complex with the amount of time we're spending engaging with technology.Ra Ma:
And as Mercury and the moon and Pluto are completing their Capricornian journey, we have this opportunity to also reflect back on what we've experienced since 2020. I think this is pretty key at this moment. Because we do have Mercury, Pluto, the Moon, the Sun, Venus and Saturn. They're all in the domain of Saturn at this moment. And Saturn is at its tail end of its journey in Aquarius. Saturn entered into Capricorn in late 2017, just as we are closing out the year, and has been in Capricorn and then Aquarius for quite some time. And this is giving us an opportunity to reflect back on what we've experienced and what we've learned. And I think on a really deep level, like what we've let go of, what we've dissolved, because that was such the great focal point in 2020. So we're opening up to be more curious and radical and to seek spaces where we can create more freedom in our lives where we can be more playful, where we can experiment. And I believe we're going to see a lot of shifts within art and culture at large, we cannot deny that our lives are rapidly shifting in ways that humanity on earth has never experienced and not in this way.Ra Ma:
And Aquarius season. Overall, it can be quite a very social, fun time for many people. And we also want to be aware of being to cut off from our hearts because it is a time where it's very easy to get into the mental realm and almost get kind of fanatical. There's definitely a dark side to the Age of Aquarius. And with that we want to be very clear that we're steering our collective in a way of really finding time to commune with Earth to be out in nature and also finding time to enjoy our humanity, enjoy being with friends and loved ones.Ra Ma:
This Saturday the 21st of January. We welcome in the Aquarius New Moon. This is at 3:53pm Eastern Standard Time and the Aquarius New Moon comes out one degree 32 arc minutes. This new moon is definitely supported with a lot of mojo from many planets, particularly we can say, Mars and Jupiter and Chiron and Juno and Ceres are all offering some profound support and alignments, and even Venus as well. So there's a lot of energy supporting this new moon and your intentions that you're going to write for this lunar cycle which I really encourage you to write for the whole of 2023. Perhaps the entire lunar season from this new moon until the next Aquarius New Moon which will usher in... it is I believe,...February 9 of 2024. And as you're creating your intentions, it would be really wise to go back to the intentions you made with a Capricorn Super New Moon at the end of December of 2022. And check those out. And with this Aquarius New Moon, we are welcoming in lunar Imbolc. We're welcoming in this time of year that honors, the fertility and the resilience of Brigid, the triple moon goddess, and very much connecting with such a profound time were in the northern hemisphere, we're still very much dancing with the energy of winter. But there's this stirring that is taking place and fire and the hearth are so significant this time of year and really welcoming and that warmth and that creative spark is key. And simultaneously with the Chinese New Year and it being this Year of the Rabbit, we have a possibility of extra intuition and brand new beginnings that are all supporting your greatest seeds of intentions for 2023. In fact, there is a very unique magic in the air that wishes to fortify your dreams for this year. And there's going to be a lot of momentum you have the ability one could say to be like lightning and to emit clear, strong and passionate designs for your future with this new moon. So I invite you to claim your sacred space. Light a candle, scribe your intentions, "I'm easily and effortlessly finding myself..." And as you do so give gratitude to your ancestors, to the elements, give gratitude to the divine source for the sacred wheel of life. Imbolc is so profound because on many levels, we are acknowledging that the earth is beginning to reawaken after her slumber. The days are lengthening. And there's the stirring found within nature. However, because there's this inward draw, it is still such a potent time of the year for divination and candle gazing and scrying and awakening a new thread of creativity through meditation and poetry, song, and other endeavors of art making and inner child. Just pure joy, like playing games and enjoying time with people who make you laugh. This is also a really beautiful time to continue to work with your guides, and your ancestors. And the truth is every day is such a good time to connect in with the support because it is up to us on this freewill planet. To encourage our guides for the support, we have to ask that as part of our work here on Earth.Ra Ma:
So as we come to Sunday, the 22nd of January we have Uranus stationing direct at 14 degrees 46 arc minutes Taurus. And this is a very exciting direct momentum, because now we have arrived at the place where all planets are direct. We have not experienced this for many, many moons now. And Uranus is the key to the elimination of your super intuitive genius potential. And so it is coming forth following the tides of this lunar Imbolc. Really adding to the possibilities for this new moon energy and for this year of the rabbit that is going to bring in a lot of hope and fertility. This is a powerful year to become more aligned with the cycles and the rhythms of the moon herself. And I would invite you to take a moment on this day, on Sunday the 22nd and reflect back on what you've experienced since Uranus went retrograde which was on the 24th of August of 2022. In fact, you might even want to reflect all the way back to the Lionsgate portal around August 8. And all of the inspiration you've received since that influx of great electric Stargate manna, you are now being offered the ability to really create lasting change for your own personal liberation. And Uranus wants to support you in this journey in this work. Uranus on many levels is like the guide to the Aquarian Age bringing in radical change. And as Uranus is at its midpoint, so to speak, and its journey through Taurus, we have had some time since 2018, to come closer to Mother Earth to really begin to believe more than ever before that we are the earth, we are nature, that we are the future ancestors of Terra Gaia, and how we weave our lives will impact the generations to come. And many of us are doing such a beautiful healing work on this planet in these times. And I think it's important that we celebrate the beauty way and that which we are creating on the planet in these times. Because there is like this thick kind of guilt consciousness that many humans are still operating under. And there's a fine line between being aware and having consciousness and walking around with like a guilt stream of consciousness and living from a space and a place of guilt is not going to elevate your future descendants. So I encourage you with this direct station of Uranus to take that time to reflect back to late July through late August. And just notice what you were going through around that time of the year, where you are now and how much you have transformed. And also, what is really significant in this transit with Uranus and Taurus is that we are taking the time to stabilize our nervous systems. And you can do this through earthing practices through really consuming high quality water, spring water live water as much as possible. Eating nourishing foods, engaging in simple sensual pleasures, really wrapping your days in ways that light you up, that allow you to be your true and pure self. And as we are starting to draw this week to a close on Thursday, the 26th of January, Venus the goddess of love and art and beauty and culture shifts into Pisces and this occurs at 9:33pm Eastern Standard Time. Venus absolutely loves being in Pisces. And this is a place where she can be very dreamy, and boundless and she can express her Muse like quality she can be the poet and the artist so freely, and Venus in pisces is also quite compassionate, empathic and deeply healing. So over the course of the next month, Venus is going to enrich your life so that you may engage in more otherworldly and transcendental activities. So it is a beautiful time especially because we are in the season of Imbolc here in the northern hemisphere to craft more time for writing, for painting, for sensual dancing, for lovemaking, for mystic expansion and meditative experiences. Venus instills that human liberty depends upon an intimate relationship to the world of nature. And within Pisces. Venus urges you to commit to your dreams for 2023 and beyond, and to make these visions manifest and so she inspires you to ask for yourself, what part of nature do you love? And how may you be her ambassador?Ra Ma:

And in July we will journey in Appalachia in honor of Mary Magdalene feast day and the most potent Venus retrograde. So I'm super excited about this year of 2023. And I'm so grateful we've made it into Aquarius season. Now we have this time to really harness the forward momentum to ride our chariots onward. And with great victory in this year of 2023. I've gone in depth in the 2023 masterclass into the overarching energies of the year and how to work with them. So if you want to learn more about that, you can check that out also via the link within the show notes. Thank you so much for circling up within stars, stones and stories. I'm always so grateful to be able to weave in this way.Ra Ma:
And I just want to take a moment and give gratitude and offer our peace to the east. May there be peace to the south. May there be peace to the west, and peace to the north. And may that peace anchor deep down within the core, in the heart of Terra Gaia, Mother Earth and spread out throughout the cosmos, threading back deep into your heart. And so it is, and so it is, and so it is. Ashe.
