Coronavirus – Covid – 10 Worldwide Update

This post is not being put up to feed into the upheaval and panic many people across Mother Earth’s governments have been feeding into all of us this is just for overall information. The important thing to remember is coronavirus is an umbrella term for all kinds of colds and flu. The strain of the virus that is causing the, to me, unnecessary panic is Covid – 19. So I hope finds everyone healthy and with enough of every to make through whatever restrictions your country or state has put into effect.

Where I live outside of Chicago, Illinois, USA our schools are closed, some of them have just switched everyone to homeschooling until about April 6th. I think that would have been a smart move for all the schools that have been closed in the USA. In Illinois as of 6:00 PM CDT all bars and restaurants have to be closed except for carry-outs or deliveries.

One of my heart brothers is going to a very special gathering in Ohio during the Spring Equinox while the event was not completely shut down they are now limited to only 99 people per indoor parts of the event. The event sponsors have rescheduled the event for near Samhain so those that cannot attend next weekend because of travel restrictions or whatever can still be together during an important time of the year. The main problem I can see for these people is being able to eat as in Ohio, the state that the event is in has put an even stricter closing of all types of restaurants.

Week – 48 Goddess Knowledge – Artemis

Artemis, the archaic mistress of animals, probably dates back to Paleolithic times. Her realm is the wilderness, and her concern extends to all wild, untamed things. She presides over the hunt and is the goddess of hunters. Fiercely individualistic and independent, she remains apart from relationships to men. Despite her fierceness she is addressed as a healing and soothing goddess/. Protector of births, she alleviates the suffering of women in childbirth, She is also responsible for the initiation of young girls. Artemis is a wonderful symbol of female independence. She reminds us of the value of solitude and the importance of wild, unprotected places. She shows us those frightening places that bring healing even through fear.

Neptune **

Neptune is home in Pisces now and for several more years. and it’s quite happy in this position. Its movements influence your hopes and dreams, your spiritual evolution, and potential attachment issues. When Neptune retrogrades, it is easy for phobias and fears to surface. If you’ve been deluding yourself in any way, those illusions could be shattered, exposing the truth. The deeper your fantasies, the harsher the truth might appear, especially if you’ve been self-medicating in some way. However rough or painful it might appear, exposing the truth is always a good thing. for it helps you embrace your higher self and grow your soul.

Pluto***

First it is a planet, then it is no planet, then it is!* Pluto is farthest from the Earth, so its retrogrades pass largely unnoticed, apart from the impact you personally or are part of an important aspect pattern. Pluto is associated with evolution, like the phoenix, who dies and rises from the ashes. Look to Pluto to find your personal transformation, where you need to let go and grow, and what is holding you back from being all you can be. Pluto’s retrograde is a time when you may be forced to come to terms with things, demolishing what has power over you, so you once again can take control of your destiny.

Conclusion

Some people believe retrogrades are detrimental. I don’t think that’s necessarily true; however, anything can seem negative if you’re naturally pessimistic! A planet’s retrograde inhibits its energy, limits its potential, and perhaps creates some delay or disruption. Retrogrades are a wonderful time for all the re- words, like review, reorganize, reflect, revamp, revise, and more. Use them to your advantage.

Mars

Mars is pretty volatile, to begin with, and the retrograde period makes things even more unsettled. MarsMars is associated with adventure, assertiveness, and action. Mars retrograde only comes around every couple of years, making it the second-rarest retrograde, and lasts just over two months. It enters the retrograde zone in late July, stations in September, turns direct in November and clears its shadow the first week of 2021.*

You’ll feel impatient during this period, but it’s not a time to rush forward into anything. You might be more accident prone than usual — another reason to take your time. If you’re easily upset, this is an ideal period to seek help or counseling. If you use this time to your advantage, you’ll be able to come to terms with whatever issues the retrograde period exposes and take the appropriate action. Then, once Mars moves out of its shadow period you’re also moving forward toward your goals.

The Outer Planets

I believe the retrogrades of the outer planets have less impact than those of the inner planets. There are exceptions to this, and the first of those is if the planets are making a strong aspect — geometric angles — to other planets in the sky at the same time. The second exception is if the planet is aspecting a planet or power point in your natal birth chart. The outer planets move slowly and tend to bring about a slow evolution, unlike the inner planets transits, which tend to be more fleeting things, The outer planets go into retrograde for several months every year. Aside from the aforementioned conditions, their strongest influence will be when they change stations.

Jupiter

Jupiter is the planet of luck and abundance, and this is true even during the retrograde period. In fact, the retrograde often benefits Jupiter. It’s a wonderful time for reflection and philosophical contemplation. Lessons to help you to find your authentic self come your way to set you up for reaching your full potential if you let them. Jupiter’s backward dance brings a chance to determine what’s really important and where you’re merely distracted. It’s a time for overcoming self-indulgence and breaking habits, so when Jupiter turned direct, the new and improved you is ready to seize any opportunity that comes your way.

Week 47 – Goddess Knowledge – IX CHEL

Ix Chel is the ancient Mayan moon goddess who reigned supreme through out the Yucatan Peninsula, in southern Mexico, as far south as El Salvador for more than a millennium. She is also called the Queen, Our Mother, the White Lady, and the Goddess of Becoming. Although married to the sun, she is fiercely independent, allowing no one to own her: she remains free to come and go as she chooses. As a fertility goddess, she makes women fruitful and sends fertilizing rains to the earth. She is a particularity honored as a patroness of child birth and healing goddess of medicine. Like many moon goddesses, she is the patroness of weaving. Ix Chel, like the waxing and waning moon. is comfortable with all sides of life. Her energy is midwife to our own creative ideas.

One Way to Make Your Own Besom Using Branches and Sticks

I suggest gathering these under a full or waxing Moon phase as they will hold more helpful energy. Your Besom can also be used to sweep out the negativity in your sacred place and/or wherever you are going to cast a circle. Remember to ask the tree you get your branch and sticks from even if they are laying on the ground no longer attached to the tree. It is always better to take what you need from a tree or shrub off of the ground beneath it rather than cutting pieces off the tree or shrub. Get a branch about 3 to 4 inches little taller then you are. Gather good size bunch of unstift smaller branches, I have found getting the sticks from under a shrub or pine tree make the best sweeping part of the Besom, if possible the size difference in them should be no more the approximately 2 inches in size. After gathering the branch and sticks remember to thank the tree for the parts it has given you and to leave an offering such as some water out of a container you have drank from. You need a ball of natural thin twine or some type of undryed vine. Tie the twine or vine to the branch making sure it is tight and will not slip off (you may want to by an angular cut about 4 to 5 inch up from the bottom of the branch to slip this twine or vine when securing it. (The size you have at the bottom of your Besom made from the twigs is up to you. Usually doing 2 to 4 layers of sticks make a good size Besom. Lay your first stick against the branch pull the twine or vine around the stick as tightly as you can, continue doing this until you have made you first layer of sticks pull the twine or vine in the opposite direction the you have been placing the in a tightly as possible and tie it off but do not cut the twine or vine. For the next layer you will follow the same instruction except lay the sticks in the opposite direction from the first layer. The third layer will go in the same direction as the first layer and the fourth layer goes in the same direction as the second layer. To help ensure you sticks stay secure to the branch at the end of each layer of sticks pour white glue over the sticks and twine or vine and make sure it gets down to the branch. If you want you can even put glue on the branch as you lay each first layer stick. Let each layer of sticks dry for approximately 24 hours before adding the next layer. When you have done the last layer and have used glue to help hold it together let the entire Besom dry a minimum of 72 hours before using it.
