Welcome to the cauldron of regeneration. On this Venus day, the 16th of December, we arrived to the last quarter moon. The moon is in Virgo. And this moon charges you with a great remembrance of the intentions, the seeds you planted with the Sagittarius New Moon that took place on the 23rd of November. So I invite you to think back to that time as we were beginning to emerge out of the sound Eclipse portal and to consider what seeds you cast on what has fertilized and what is not taking form, that needs to perhaps be pulled out of the garden and composted and what needs to continue to be nurtured, but perhaps is growing a little slow and might need to receive some extra love and care and then take root even stronger come February of March of 2023, when we really will begin to experience more direct forward momentum. So, the last quarter moon is also inviting you. This is the last quarter moon of the entire year. So, it is inviting you to also look back to consider the year of 2022 as a whole to reflect upon the transformation you have experienced in this year of Hieros Gamos, this year of the lovers.Ra Ma:
And I want to take a moment to just inspire you to consider the power of Hieros Gamos. We haven't really dove deep into this topic in stars, stones and stories, in a number of episodes. And if you're a new listener here, I just want to share with you I used to do these very long transmissions. They would be about an hour and a half, sometimes two, two and a half hours in length. And I'm now offering those extended transmissions through Ma Magick, which is a wisdomkeeper council that you are invited to be a part of if you feel called. And in those longer transmissions, we would break down some of these archetypal nuggets of wisdom that I share in Stars, stones and stories and 2022 has been very important for us collectively, because it is really the first year where we've been feeling more of a building of forward moving energy than we have had in a number of years. Namely, since the year of 2020, when we experienced a multitude of great conjunctions, and so much taking place over the late degrees of Capricorn, really encouraging all of us to dissolve and shed and deconstruct parts of our lives.Ra Ma:
And 2022 has been important because as the year of the lovers, we are invited, if you so desire to step deeper into Egyptian mysticism, and to consider the power of the Ka body. So within the Egyptian cosmology, and I consider the Egyptian cosmology, the real pure, true aspects of this cosmology that are free of distortions. Within this cosmology, we have this understanding of the Ka body. And this is definitely an ancient future technology that I think will assist us very much in these times, as we're moving forward, every single person has a Ka body. The Ka is the energy double of who you are in the opposite gender. So if you identify as a woman, your Ka will be a man, and vice versa. And the Ka body is roughly the same size that you are. And it is who you would be if you were the opposite gender. However, it really exists in an energetic template, while you're in your physical incarnation. And your Ka goes everywhere with you.Ra Ma:
Many, many people, I think, have gotten very confused with this, like outside seeking of this perfect person, this person that's going to come in and fulfill all their dreams and their desires. And what they're really longing for is a deeper connection with their Ka body. The Ka is your divine counterpart on so many levels. And your Ka is always, always always with you. And this is important because a lot of people have gotten confused and distorted by twin flame love. And I do believe that there is a such thing as like this eternal love, a higher, elevated experience that can exist for people in an incarnation. And I do believe that we have particular souls out there that are a part of our soul, tribe family, that were meant to unite with. And we're meant to experience things with and we've gone through many, many dimensions and incarnations with, I very much believe in that. And I very much also believe that if you look into a lot of the information around twinflame love, it is another sort of level of distraction to think that you are not whole from within. And if you understand the Ka body, and how to connect with the Ka, then you fully step into your power, realizing that you are absolutely whole. In fact, everything you have, everything you need, you already have from within. And so much of what you've been longing for is merely a deeper connection with your Ka. So as we consider this year of 2022, it is offered us each one of us different initiations to come home to our energy double to activate that connection with your Ka body.Ra Ma:
And now is such a beautiful time to really let go of the losses of 2022 and celebrate the expansion. So you can begin to intuit your inspiration for 2023. And if you're looking for more support with that, I have a 2023 masterclass a recording that is available for you that is going to help prepare you for the year ahead and know All of the key transits and how to identify them, how to know what's coming up for you and to see the dream for 2023.Ra Ma:
Because this week coming up that begins with Sunday, the 18th of December is really the prime time to vision for 2023. When we begin January of the new year, we have both Mercury and Mars Retrograde, so that energy is more of a reflective time. It's more of a liminal space that we're beginning the new year in. And this week ahead is so key to help you really create a solid foundation for the year. Now on the 18th of December Sunday, Ceres, the asteroid Goddess that represents the Great Mother, how one receives and gives nurturance how we connect with the earth herself, land, food, how we take care of our environment. Ceres speaks to so much of this but also emotionally, and psycho spiritually what we want in our relationships. And as she is shifting into Libra, on a collective level, Ceres is bringing in a fresh perspective through the airy, intellectual frequency of how we can communicate in new ways how we can relate in new ways, how we can be more in harmony with the Earth, how we can be more in harmony with our relationships, the people, the beings that we really love, and how we can create more beauty within all of these realms. On that day, we also have the moon shifting into Scorpio and the waning Scorpio moon can bring up a lot of deep seated emotions, it might take you back to the south Eclipse portal to consider the transformation you have undergone since October of 2022. What you've let go of, what you've realized what you've begun, and to take stock of all of this. The Scorpio moon is a great time to allow yourself to feel the different layers and levels of feelings and to invite in deeper transformation, to really lean into your intuition and to trust your ability to regenerate yourself.Ra Ma:
On Tuesday, the 20th of December at 9:32am Eastern Standard Time. Jupiter, the jovial, generous, gregarious, social teaching planet of great expansion leaves one of his home signs, the home sign of Pisces, where he will not return for another 12 years. Technically like 11, because it's a 12 year cycle and comes back into Aries. So Jupiter first entered Aries in May of 2022. And journeyed in Aries then went retrograde back into Pisces and now Jupiter has gone direct. If you remember that was just a few minutes after the Sagittarius New Moon on the 23rd of November. And now Jupiter direct is reemerging back into fiery passionate, cardinal, initiatory Aries. So there's a lot more inspiration and there's just this energy of taking charge and adventure and moving forward which can have some rashness, some explosiveness, some impatience, but it's also really going to ignite your inspiration. As Jupiter brings faith and joy and hope and wisdom and knowledge. There are so many blessings that are going to be ignited in that Aries part of your chart. And Jupiter will be in Aries until May of 2023. And so you really want to utilize this transit over the next five months and to work that energy wherever Jupiter is in your chart, that's where gifts and opportunities want to come your way. So you want to be aware of those gifts and opportunities when they start knocking on your door, really lean into your physical body and notice where it feels alive. And if it feels juicy and passionate go for it. We can also use the momentum of Jupiter now in Aries on the 21st of December, Wednesday, when we have the sun shifting into Capricorn at 4:48pm. That's Eastern Standard Time.Ra Ma:
And as the sun shifts, the sun initiates a brand new Wheel of the Year as it enters within the accomplished and disciplined, initiatory realm, the earthly realm of Capricorn that has that beautiful wide reaching universal capacity to mastermind any situation. Within the northern hemisphere we are welcoming the winter solstice and the season of rebirth. Meanwhile, the summer the southern hemisphere welcomes the summer solstice and the zenith of expression. Winter Solstice allows us a time of drying within the darkness to celebrate the return of the light. Just as simultaneously within the southern hemisphere. There is the celebration of the return of the dark. There is this cosmic balance, this cosmic order that is always taking place. As above, so below. As below, so above. This beautiful synchronistic dance very much like you connected to your Ka body, there is an ebb and flow of energy that is always happening.Ra Ma:
And because most of the Earth's population at this time does live in the northern hemisphere, collectively, so many people are focused on slowing down, stopping as many of the like day to day activities that you can to carve out time to look back and reflect as you prepare for this entire New Wheel of the Year. We are beginning a new, we are dancing another spiral layer upon the cosmic Wheel of the Year in this cauldron of regeneration. To honor the solstice in the northern hemisphere, you may feel called to build a nature altar with Evergreen, with silver birch, garlic, Yarrow, oranges, apples, with cloves, and anything else that calls to you.Ra Ma:
In the southern hemisphere, that can be a celebration of being more out on the land and creating an altar with flowers that are in bloom and the various parts of nature that are alive for you. For us, honoring winter, it is a time to honor that which is dying and has died. And holding on to the promise of that which is coming our way. We can look to sacred sites around the world including Newgrange and the great pyramids and Karnak temple and Stonehenge. These are all sites very sacred, beautiful, beautiful portals that mark the winter solstice through their physical astronomical orientation. These are all sites that I have had the great privilege of being on the land, and also studying academically, understanding them not only from an astrological perspective, from a Daoist stone medicine perspective, from my own intuitive perspective, from my multi dimensional remembrance, and also from that academic astronomical lens of how significant these spaces and places are.Ra Ma:
At the winter solstice, the route energy is activated. There is this direct communication between the route energy that connects to the other worldly realms, which is stimulated best through dreaming and spiritual expansion and learning. The great cosmic Wheel of Time begins with the winter solstice, within the womb of the great mother herself. We welcome this festival of rebirth as we gather within the cauldron of regeneration. This is a time to regenerate yourself, to regenerate the very cells of your being and to prepare for what is in store for you on a deep, deep level this year of 2023, that is just around the corner. There's so much that wishes to be explored and expanded, and now is the time to go within and to draw up that yin frequency so that you have the strength and the inspired vision and the stamina and the Chi, the pure vitality, the pranic force, the second to get you through 2023 with a might, and a strength and a genius potential. As we reclaim the dark we make peace with endings, we let go of the cycles that have come to pass, we have passed the dark of the sun and we welcome the beginnings and the rebirth of the sun.Ra Ma:
Just as Osiris has shown us the way forth, the way to move through the realms of the dead, to become an infinite limitless being. Regardless of where you are in the world, the current astrology is encouraging you to deeply rest and rejuvenate as we culminate the year of 2022. And as you're resting and culminating, you are seeding the dreams for 2023, the illusions are falling away. So allow the space to let go of what was then a new seed of potentials illuminated and ready to merge with the earth and take root. And on this day of Winter Solstice the moon is in Sagittarius. And this is so beautifully cosmically aligned, as the moon is reminding us of the new moon intentions from that Sagittarius cycle. Where do you wish to adventure in 2023? How may your consciousness open and what explorations will invoke your greatest potential as we come to Thursday the 22nd of December, The Dark Moon is in Capricorn just before the Super New Moon that will take place on Venus day Friday, the 23rd of December and on the 22nd we have Venus trining Uranus. We have this beautiful expansive energy between Venus and Capricorn, and Uranus and Taurus and we have that forward momentum of Jupiter in Aries, assisting you in your dreamseeding. This is a time to vision vision vision and to utilize the frequencies around you as you're seeding your dream for the beautiful expansion of 2023 that is coming your way. As we draw this episode to a close, I invite you to really sink into this mantra that I've been sharing throughout the month of December in Ma Magick and also through various streams, whether it's Stars, stones and stories or Instagram posts. 'I am a vibrational match to all of my desires.' 'I am a vibrational match to all of my desires.' 'I am a vibrational match to all of my desires.' Ashe.
