Ra Ma:

Oh great ancient ones, great ancestors, we call to you. May you hear the voices of your descendants traversing through time and space. We humbly ask for your support, your wise medicine ways and your genius solutions in these times. Dear ancestors, we wish to partner with you for we know we cannot do this alone. As we traverse the mystery we ask that you, our starry ancestors are with us each breath of the way. May we have clarity of mind and Crystaline vision to see through the dark. May we walk our paths of High Holy Truth as that is what is needed now more than ever. And so it is.

Ra Ma:

Welcome, welcome. Welcome to Episode 88 of stars, stones and stories. It is lovely to circle back up with you all. I have been abroad on pilgrimage, Tending The Dragon Lines. And I'm now anchoring back home, the Eclipse portal is officially open. And I'm just so grateful to be able to circle up with you in this way to be immersed in the bounty of spring, the song of the birds, the lusciousness of all of the plants emerging and the rabbits that are living in my yard and watching them have their fun. Sometimes they do the cutest things. I've even seen two of them high five, one another in the air. So I again just sit with so much gratitude for this sacred holy life. And there's something so poignant about pilgrimage, and that it gives you this opportunity to have a fresh perspective on life. And it's even more fulfilling, I believe when one has the privilege to travel to another culture and to experience other people and to hear from others and how they're doing in their lives and to see the land in other places and to witness how others tend to the land and how they move about on the land. It's just... it's truly such a gift. And so as I open up today's episode, I'm just really feeling the gift of it all because I have not even been back a full 48 hours. It's been about 36 hours now. And I just kind of hit the ground running so to speak in the sense that last night we came together for the women's wisdom Council for the Aries New Moon and then following that we came together for a total solar eclipse Council and that was a combination of people in person and online. And we were up until 3am, here in an Asheville, meditating, and there were people from across the country. And yeah, it was just... it was beautiful to gather in that way. And I'll be honest, it was challenging, having not really recovered yet from my journey, but also just feeling into the sanctity of these eclipses and how important they are and how precious life is. For me, being in service and helping others to sink into these portals is part of my joy and part of my pleasure. And so for me, it was really fulfilling, and I got a few hours of sleep, and I woke up really refreshed. I'm just kind of amazed at how refreshed I'm feeling.

Ra Ma:

And as we're circled up for this episode, 88, I can't believe this is episode 88 of this podcast. It's the year 2023. And it was just about three years ago that I started stars, stones and stories. And it's been such a journey, I have to say it's quite a feat to be consistent, and to continue to put something out. And so I'm grateful to be able to continue to deliver these podcasts. And I'm so grateful for you on the other end, who listens, whether this is your first time circled here in Stars, stones and stories or you've been an avid listener, thank you so much for circling up. Because I cannot do this without you. I mean, I could but then I'd just be speaking to myself. And it's just so beautiful to hear from you all who listen and how you're touched by these episodes and how our lives weave together even when we may not know it. And that's part of the reason why this is stars, stones and stories because I am so passionate about our story origins and astrology. And I consider myself a cosmic priestess in the sense that I serve a multitude of goddesses. And for me ultimately, the source point is our great Cosmic Womb of all of creation. And ultimately, I serve her and the stones. The stones of our Earth are what anchor the starry wisdom.

Ra Ma:

And I've been traveling to various stone circles for over two decades now. And was just in Avalon and at Stonehenge and Stanton Drew and stone circles in Wales and just so grateful to have that opportunity to touch into these ancient beings. And even when I consider like the stones that have built the Great Pyramid and the temples of Egypt, these stones are a living, breathing, sentient beings that carry a frequency and carry information for us. 8 is a number, it is a number of mastery, it is illuminating your ability to connect in with the master frequency of manifestation. As human beings we are creators and creatrixes and eight reminds you of your infinite potential. If you turn the number eight on its side, you have the infinity symbol beckoning to you that you are limitless.

Ra Ma:

And the reality is only you can crown yourself. This incarnation for so many of us is a path of glory to our own, and our queendom, our kingdom. And I use that word and I know for some it can be jarring when we look at history and we see how so many with a crown on their head have utilized power and control for domination and exploitation and colonialism. However, a true queen a true king wears that crown as a symbol that they are in service to the Most High. And it is a symbol to show their devotion because that crown is crowning the crown chakra, the crown chakra connecting to the most high to our source starry origin points. And we are in a time where many of us are being called to reclaim this wisdom and to really crown thyself. When you add up eight plus eight you get the number 16 which we can consolidate down to a seven. Seven is the path of trust, openness and stability and process. It is a deeply spiritual number, a holy number in many ways. Some say it is the key to the third dimensional reality and within the Great Pyramid all is divisible by the number seven, the seventh Pleiades, the Seven Sisters remind me of how on this pilgrimage tending the dragon lines that has just culminated the 16th of April, there were seven of us who journey together, seven sisters. And our culmination point was this amazing place in Wales, really beautiful, delightful space. And at this space seven medicinal springs come together. And so I wish to take you on a brief journey of dragons and the Blue Lotus.

Ra Ma:

As I a birth pilgrimages, it truly is a birthing process in the sense that a seed is planted in my consciousness, and it takes form over time, I might know the location, but I don't always know the exact theme or frequencies and it comes in layers, the pilgrimages for 2023, tending the dragon lines in Avalon and Wales and dream seed incubation with the Blue Lotus in Egypt came through throughout our time from our last Eclipse cycle in the fall of 2022. And that really gnarly Mars Retrograde. It was such a intense time for me because the Mars Retrograde was on so many of my personal planets and in my ninth house, and so really activating my higher mind and my connection with divination. However, I wasn't able to fully work with the language in the ways that I normally do. And so it was kind of impairing on many levels, fragments of these pilgrimages began to come together and weave together but they weren't really making cognitive sense to me. And I knew that the Avalon and Wales pilgrimage was asking for a high magic, mythic Merlin focus with Dragon frequency. Meanwhile, Egypt was calling forth a Blue Lotus frequency. And although I've been stewarding pilgrimages to both of these lands for a number of years, I hadn't consciously worked with either of these themes in such a specific way. As always, I trust the process and things have seated. And as we were moving through our dragon pilgrimage, and Avalon and Wales, and it was it was very powerful in the sense that there was such a particular opportunity for each one of us, each woman to really connect in deep with our own personal dragon into work with the strike and frequency on the land. And as we culminated, I was in London, and having my first kind of moment to integrate and to reflect and to just have some quiet time as I am an introvert. And I love those moments after a pilgrimage to just really go into stillness and quiet and to let everything really start to gel. And I was in a hot tub.

Ra Ma:

And these jets were moving my body in such a lovely way because I had been driving a van and things were tight, and it just felt so good to have that pressure on my body. And channels were starting to open and I had been debating whether or not to take a trip to the British Museum, I think I have gone there every time I've visited London. And for me, it's been a place that has felt very important to connect in with the cultural portals to the spaces and places on our earth. And it's interesting how over time, I have a different relationship with these areas within the museum and the museum itself. It's, in many ways kind of gut wrenching to go to certain parts of the museum, particularly the Egyptian part because having traveled to Egypt, so much, I do feel that most of what is in the British Museum should be back home in Egypt. And it's hard to see people interacting with these sacred, I don't even want to call them objects, but there are literal portals that have been systematically taken from their origin point. And I do believe that in some way, they are still activated. But as I was standing before, one of the segments, there's four gorgeous, beautiful Sekmets in the British Museum. The one this time she looked pretty sad. And it was so hard to not just want to like really interact with her. And I did end up drawing a little attention by the museum guards a few times. And it's just such a shame, how we, how we interact with what has been left by the ancients. And I do believe it's important to honor and preserve in a right way.

Ra Ma:

And also I think that we are coming to a time where it's important for these museums to really look at what right do they have to house, so many important pieces of history and cultural wisdom and heritage so many of far miles away, like, for instance, the majority of Egyptians will never be able to visit the British Museum, they will never be able to see what lies within those walls that is of their culture. So I did go to the British Museum, as you can hear, and I was given a very particular assignment as I was sitting in that hot tub, and it was to go and look particularly for the Blue Lotus. And I knew, you know, obviously, to start with the Egyptian area. But I also knew to continue on through Southeast and the Far East. And so that happened, and it was amazing to go through with one particular assignment like that it's not something I've actually ever done in the British Museum. And what I saw in the Egyptian section was totally different from how I would normally interact with it. Because normally, I really interact with particular places that I go to a lot in Egypt, like what's there from the Giza plateau and Saqqara and the sacraments, which were taken from the temple of muds and other other places. And I mean, it's just crazy to think of how much the British Museum has and that's what's on display, right? Like there's so much more. And I also always think of own study, when I'm there as well. And just, I can only imagine what it was like, through her eyes to have that experience at the British Museum so many years ago. And as I found myself, moving into the Southeast Asian and Far East section, I came across this amazing tile. It's quite large, and it's four rows of tiles, and they are called, trying to remember the precise name but basically, these ceramic tiles have dragons, and Blue Lotus on them. And my mind was just blown because this year, the two pilgrimages that I have been attuned to deliver are focusing on dragons, and blue lotuses. And I've never seen them together like this. And this group of 20 glazed ceramic tiles is from the Ming Dynasty in China from the 15th to 16th century and there's just these beautiful four dragons, lots of blue color, a little bit of yellow, and there's flowers, and they're blue lotus and peony. And it's even more striking to me because right before I left for the tending the dragon lines pilgrimage, I transplanted to peonies in the front of my house.

Ra Ma:

So, this is this is the work. This is how you listen to the voices of the other world and we follow the guidance and the direction and eclipse season is here. The eclipses are here. We have entered in through the consciousness of the Dragon's Head as we have just been through the total solar eclipse and the new moon in Aries at 29 degrees 50 arc minutes Aries and on the fifth of May, Venus day we have our premium burl lunar eclipse, a Scorpio Full Moon at 14 degrees 50 arc minutes.

Ra Ma:

So we are very much anchored into this dragon frequency, this dragon consciousness. And for so many of us there are these parallel worlds that are just opening and unfolding. And now that Pluto is in Aquarius and Saturn is in Pisces, our experience of time and energy and speed and space is in a format we have never experienced in our human condition. And I invite you to really find the beauty, find the joy, live your pleasure, bring bliss, consciousness into your life. Give gratitude for what is working and give gratitude for what is coming your way. I guarantee you as you work with this frequency more and more, the miracle consciousness will seed within you and like a string of pearls your life will make so much more sense than it ever has before. You will see how eclipses bring are truths that are here to ultimately serve you. Dragon frequency, it is mighty. It is all about sovereignty and right action, and It's fierce. And we all from time to time have sober truths we need to face however, as we're willing to allow and to dive into what may be uncomfortable on one level or another or inconvenient. We can open up like this multitude of gifts that you just never knew was available to you. So I really believe in the medicine of these Eclipse portals. They're very intense. From time to time, and many of us struggle with change and transformation. We on some level want it. However, there's such a fear in letting go and allowing and eclipses just come in with such a brute force that you have to surrender. And that's just the reality of it.

Ra Ma:

On this Venus day, Friday, the 21st of April, Mercury shifts retrograde, officially beginning the psychopomp journey, stationing at 15 degrees 37 arc minutes Taurus Mercury Retrogrades, three to four times every year. So these are natural ebbs and flows of creation. I am a professional astrologer who actually really appreciates Retrogrades and I believe a lot of astrology hypes them up in a way because it sensationalizes life. And many astrologers, we tend to be a little dramatic. You know, we like the theater of life. However, given that, I think it's important Retrogrades give us an opportunity to really reflect on our lives. However, they're not like something we have to fear. We don't have to freeze the way we live and in life. That being said, I never would recommend marrying within a Mercury Retrograde portal or Venus retrograde or even a Mars Retrograde. So as Mercury is stationing retrograde Mercury becomes the psycho pump. And psycho pumps like Isis, Toth, Tahuti, Hecate, they are known to guide the souls of the dead. And in addition, they have this ability to bring messages between humanity and the realm of the gods. So I encourage you with this mercury retrograde and Taurus, check out where this energy of roughly six to 16 degrees Taurus lives, and that is going to show you where you are being encouraged to review and refresh and rewrite your own consciousness your thoughts and your values on how you communicate, how you connect to the earth and to allow yourself to persevere with compassion and grace Retrogrades are very potent shamanic portals. And with this retrograde in Taurus you're being asked to gauge how you tend to your resources, including our Earth, our most valuable collective resource, the dance between ether and matter has the potential to come into holistic integration. And you may affirm "I evolve with a new life".

Ra Ma:

And as you find your way through the path of love with this Mercury Retrograde the next day Saturday, the 22nd of April is Earth Day. Honestly, I have a hard time with these days like Earth Day and women's day and it's just like why isn't every day a holy day for the earth that should just be non negotiable. And I invite you on this Earth Day to really connect in with Mother Earth and give gratitude. Earth is the cosmic energy the divine spirit, where you live as a seed of life where you are able to express your unique individual being. We are children of the Earth as much as we are children of the stars. Earth is the foundation upon which you identify yourself and another. Earth is the mother and the father where every being finds a home no matter what. All of us. All of us belong here on this planet. All of us have a right to be here. And Mother Earth, Father Earth, Tingon and Timbalu, as given through Dagara land in honor of my mentor elder Mallidoma Some, Tingon and Timbalu offer you a lap, a lap to call home, a lap to cry upon,, a breast to be nourished, we all need comfort, we all need care. Every human being, every being deserves to have nourishment and warmth, comfort, clean, pure, live water, vital, rich, healthy foods, a wild abundance of connection to our Earth's ecological vitality. May the generations to come, honor and respect our Earth, even more than how we were raised and how we were taught. Many of us were not taught, we were raised a lot of unconscious energy around our connection to the earth. And each one of us, we have the power to change that, to shift that narrative. In this eclipse portal, particularly, you have the ability to shift any narrative you are called to, within your own coding, your own DNA genetic coding, what are you willing to shift in honor of your connection and your appreciation and your love and your devotion to Mother Earth? On this day and every day thereafter? May you celebrate the radiance of our Earth, for she knows your name, your passions, your joys, your fears, your worries, your dreams, your desires, your quirks, the things you think you hide from everyone, Mother Earth knows. And she continues to provide for you nourishment support, comfort, empowerment, creativity, and so much more. To give thanks and praises for the sacred life on this beautiful planet we get to call home. Even for those of us who sometimes feel alien or foreign here on this earth, the earth she knows you and she respects you and she loves you.

Ra Ma:

And as we come to Thursday, Jupiter day, the 27th of April we arrive at the first quarter moon seven degrees 21 arc minutes of Leo. This is giving you an opportunity to act and build upon your seeds of potential, your dreams and your intentions that you planted with the second Aries New Moon of the year. But that total solar eclipse, and as the moon's light is steadily increasing the momentum is strong and forceful. Harness the passionate heart centered and confident frequency of Leo to take to claim your regal throne. Crown thyself. Allow any crisis's that you're dealing with, any obstacles that are before you, see them as an opportunity to move with a grit so that you may rise to any occasion. Anchor your strong roots just like the tree of life does, and extend your beautiful branches out so that you may be a channel for the divine energy that wishes to flow through you through your veins.

You may affirm:

"I encompass all realms from the roots of the heart of the earth to the heavenly glory. I will."

You may affirm:

As you find yourself maneuvering through this Ostara, Beltane Eclipse portal, you may find yourself time bending, allow yourself to ride the natural waves of inspiration. Instead of forcing things. Notice where the energy comes to life and ride it, ride it like the dragons back at times, you might find you can achieve three weeks worth of work in just a few hours. If you really sink into the natural flow of energy. And you have this ability at any point to notice what consciousness is no longer working for you. And to identify the timeline you wish to live within, that you wish to move into. Allow yourself to shift your vibrational state to match that timeline and hold it, lock in the frequency. Even when challenges arise. Let them flow through you and then just continue to hold that frequency and take action by action step by step as an expression of the new timeline. Persevere. This year of 2023 in the Dagara cosmology is a year of nature, a year to celebrate transformation through the realms of magic. Nature teaches you how to welcome change with grace to be the standing tree next to the flowing waters. Utilize this Taurus season to honor the beauty of nature even more than you already do.

You may affirm:

Allow yourself to sing, to dance, to be mesmerized, to fall in love with the fertility of the Earth, find inspiration in the cycles of life and death of womb and tomb. Play, be in your pleasure, be in your joy. Unite with the Earth's guardians. Give offerings to the devas, the little people, the Kontomble, the elves, the trolls, the Noles, the gnomes, the unseen ones, the dragons, the great elemental mothers, all that tend to the earth.

You may affirm:
