We are in the dark of the moon . At 9 PM Pacific time we will cross over into the new moon in Capricorn. There is a conjunction happening between Pluto , God of the underworld and mercury Bringer of communication.
So I took my telephone to the forest to try to dial up and communicate with the under, middle , and upper worlds To see who I could reach.
It was the underworld that called first… Must be that Pluto Influence that wants to be heard and upheaved. The Yew Tree, Guardian of the underworld spoke to me from the right side. I entered in carefully and circled under her branches that felt like arms wrapping around me . She gave shelter from the rain and I could hear her in her cave. The stirring began and I could feel it coming out of my body.
I turn to the east welcome in the east And all the birds that sing in the air I saw maple tree
I turn to the south to welcome in the south And all the sea life that the swims n dances is in the fiery sun I saw cedar tree
I turn to the west to welcome in the west and all the mammals who Make the coastal rainforest their home with the flowing rivers and Waterfall’s I saw Douglasfir
And then back to the north and welcome in the north And all the ancestors a d an elders Found in the stones in the stories of our earth I turn and I see the Yew from which I began
I feel anchored and centred in the forest and feel so grateful that I was called to the specific place I started to circle over to the east to the maple where I found my brown knitted hat… Soaked in the rain… Even as I write this in this moment it is a mystery to how this hot got here as I was just wearing it yesterday and I have not been back in this forest for a few days
My trusted that there was deep meaning in me being in this forest today and so I continued in my journey heading towards the tree to the south of the circle where I had a heart ache when opening the direction
It was here I decided to put my telephone down to plug-in.. And see if I could find out what that tugging was at my heart
I I tried to dial God I looked up to the skies‘s I tried to dial the mother I look down to the roots I I listened by the soothing sounds of the creek Mmmm. and the birds song I I need help guide my way into that silence
So I can hear her speak
Ahhhh you have arrived She said .
I began to breathe deeply and feel all the oxygen of the forest
I was so grateful she had called me back to her on this evening of the dark moon.
With so much falling in our systems surely we are feeling this within ourselves in our old conditioning‘s we once had
This is what Pluto was asking to let fall old conditions ruled in the Capricorn patriarch and welcoming in loving and stern inner father , nurturing ourselves with direction and order in a way that is aligned heart and and earthly Capricorn , the great ram. Let us not ram ourselves anymore with harsh judgements and constraints Please be free of conditioning .
I went up to my car as I felt to offer a gift to the spot for the clear vision and hearing On the dash of my car was some pearly everlasting , a symbol of hope after distraction. a symbol of everlasting love , that grows at the side of rocky lands or clearcuts.
I gifted these two little bundles to the cedar tree in the face of the south.
Then just a few inches over I saw what looked like two beautiful pearls. I looked around for more but there was just these only two perfectly beautiful white iridescent berries… They were not snowberries They were more clear They reminded me of Mary’s tears A berry that represented the grief that mother Mary may have felt over the loss of her son
Tho these ones did not have speckles , nor were they red they were clear white , like pearls And there were two
May our hard work and grief create pearls of everlasting love As we come on thru to the other side
