big times . . . and big gifts . . . xxx

Yes these are Big Times . . . but so much is being given.

It’s like a Renaissance . . . . the Birthing. . .  of a whole new Story.  Personally, I feel incredibly grateful to have taken this journey . . . of 2011 and 2012 . . . here at Mahalia.  I gave her that name . . . or so I thought . . . obviously she allowed me to feel it.  The name represents Tenderness. . . and marrow . . . ‘the innermost, best or essential part . . . the core . . . the central Power.  She is all of those things.

She drew me here . . . to heal . . . to teach me about Magick.  I knew,  many years ago, when I first ‘visioned’  her . . . that there was something I needed to learn.  I make . . . well co-create . .  Flower Essences . . . I thought it may have been going ‘deeper’ into the understanding of natural medicines.  I couldn’t have imagined how it was going to be . . . . we never can . . . can we.

Nothing really happens . . . as we imagine.  It has its own unique path. . .  of manifestation.  It’s good that way.  We get so many beautiful surprises.  I had my plans, yes . . . my dreams . . . my wishes; but I also had my intuitive vision . . . and I listened to the calling.  My curiosity and pioneer spirit . . . helps here too.  And I love learning. . . love growing . . . it’s the best sensation.  And with my little Capricorn Moon . . . which often gets such a bad rap . . . ‘particularly not good for a woman’ . . . well I have to disagree . . . Yes, situations, especially emotional ones, haven’t been easy . . . but when are they . . .  especially being a woman . . brought up on all those doctored stories . . . and without the support of the Goddesses.  But she (Capricorn Moon) connects me to the Earth . . . to her energy of manifestation . . . the core, the structure of Life . . . her foundation . . . so she’s really pretty groovy.  And . . . she demands authenticity ..  . . oohhh . . . from me . . .  and others.

But I heard the call . . . I listened . . . and I responded.  Yes it took courage . . . but we’re made of that stuff . . . aren’t we girls.  We give birth . . . .

I followed their enchanting, hypnotic sound . ..  and they brought me here.

Over these 2 years much has happened to me.  I got to stop . . .  really stop . . . and listen .  I got to stop . . . really stop . .  and ‘See’.  And that changed my life forever.  I’ve always been a bit of a sensitive chick . . . a modern woman with ancient roots . . . but this ‘learning’ that’s been so generously offered . . . I could never have found . . . no matter where I went . . . or who I asked.  It was personal, so very personal . . . tuition . .  by the ‘Goddesses’ themselves . . . . the, so very, Ancient Feminine Wisdom . . . from which our precious Earth is created.

It radiates from the Earth . . . it shines from the trees . . . our most ancient wisdom keepers.  It glows from the flowers and plants . . . and welcomes us thru our animal friends.  It’s in the air . . . the water we drink . . . it’s the Energy of Life . . . that we live and breathe.  Mother Earth is made from this Sacred Wisdom . . . she radiates it . . . and speaks it constantly.

I was invited here . . . to experience it.  I wasn’t expecting anything like this.  How could I . . . it was beyond my understanding and previous experience . . .  or at least that I consciously remembered.   So yes Magick exists . . . . I use that word often . . . ’cause I reckon it’s the best there is . . . to really describe . . . what’s really going on.

I can tell you I feel incredibly grateful . . . for all that’s been given . . . and continues to be given . . . . every day .. . . every moment.  We are all so incredibly fortunate . . . to be alive . . . and living on this so very Sacred Planet.  An awakening to this Sacredness . . . is essential.

have a glorious day

tired . . then ‘poof’ captured by the magick!

My alarm’s reliable . . . she’s white and furry, with a distinctive sound . . . there’s no chance of ignoring.  She’s mobile this alarm . . . and carries some weight . . . she doesn’t ring on the bed-side table . .  she hops up and sits directly in front of your face!!  She goes off about the same time each day . . . around 4am.

This morning I was tired . .  weary inside and out . . . a big day yesterday . . . still feeling the effects.  I tried to linger. . . roll over . . . go back to sleep . . . ‘no’ I say to my little furry friend.  Off she jumps . . . but she’s immediately back.  Now I’m awake. . . it’s time to get out of bed.

No thoughts of Meteors . . . or going outside. . . slowly this morning. . . the Body wants to go. . . . on this crisp beginning of another dawn.  Went to boil some water . . . to add to my lovely mix. . . of fresh ginger and cardamon and a stick of coiled cinnamon.  Ahh, bottles empty . . . need to go outside to get some more . . . I put rain water in coloured bottles. . . and leave them out in the Sun.

They got me outside . . .sneaky little/big buggers!  Too tired, I thought  . .  for more adventures this morning.  But once my eyes spotted regal Jupiter . . . glowing his brilliance . . .  at the exact mid-point, again, sitting above the beautiful Tree.  They had me.

Orion still crowning Jupiter . . . never too far away from his beloved Pleiadian Maidens.  Pleiades to the left (would be 12th house in the ‘chart’) . . . so small. . .  but so enchantingly hypnotic.  Rising in the East . . . again at the mid-point . . .Venus sparkles her magnificent Beauty.

I was caught, once again . . .  in the Magick of the Morning.  When Day meets Night. . . they embrace and share their stories  . . . before returning to their duties.

WOW!!  Unexpected . . . a Meteor dives with such magickal presence . . . flies thru the air . . . direct. . . from Jupiter to the Pleiades.  My tummy fills with butterflies . . . my eyes fill with tears . . . captured in the Magick. . . . once again.

Then another . . . again across the Pleiades . . . I’m caught, really caught. . . . the Magick has got me.  It’s not easy to describe the sensations I’m having. . . my Body feels sparkly . . . excited . . . and enchanted.  ‘Caught in the Magick’ . . . best way I can describe it.

Then out of the very corner of my eye . . . I see a flash . . . a brilliant flash of golden light.  My head spins swiftly . . . quickly turning . . . what was that???  I saw it . . . I saw it.  It was a thick trail of golden light . . .  heading for the horizon . . . in the very exact . . . North East corner.

That just blew me away . . . . what an amazing blessing. . . . .

Oh . . .just before that dazzling show of Meteor brilliance caught my eye . . . an Owl flew, inches from my face . . . circling my head.  Boy, what a morning!

A  tired little girl this morning . . . with no thoughts of magick. . . . just wanting to linger inside . . . warm and nurtured.

Yes Life is Magick all right . . . really. . .  it’s the only way. . .  I can describe it.

 

Enjoy the Magick . . . while you have the chance

Meteors, Jupiter, Pleiades, Saturn, Scorpio . . . Mum’s Birthday

It’s been a wee bit sensitive of late . . . .  lots moving, uncovering and being tender.  Saturn’s in Scorpio.

Out in the pre-dawn, it’s 4am . . . keen to see the meteor showers . . . alas, there’s significant cloud cover . . . no complaints . . . those rain clouds are needed.  I’m willing to wait . .  . .  so pull my sun-bed out to the uncovered deck . . . get myself a cup of tea . . . and of course my journal and pen . . . it’s very dark at this time!!  I focus and wait, nothing much is visible . . . cloud cover moving, revealing each sparkle one by one.  Then bingo. . . I see one . . . it’s always really special to see . . . ‘falling stars’ . . . wonderful wishes can be made.   Still keen, I sit and wait . . . then begin feeling all around me.  Thinking . .  . everything is energy, everything has a vibration.  I may not be able to see the Meteors . . . but I can feel them!  So start focusing on the energy  . . . so much Life . . . so much is happening.  Everything’s so still and silent . . .  yet so full . .  and so incredibly enchanting.

My focus wanders to Jupiter . . .  he’s sitting mid-point on top of the beautiful tree, not far from where I am sitting . . . the ‘MC’ I think . . . the highest mid-point in the Astrological chart . . . shining his Light for the benefit of all.  Above Jupiter sits Orion and the Pleiades . . . I’ve had a visit from the Pleiadians . . . it was during the Pleiadian Eclipse a few months back . ..  that was a ‘first’ . . . and another story.

I allow myself to feel the energy . . . receive the ‘transmissions’. . .  so much is being given.  Yes Life is giving . . . every single moment . . . yes Life is Magick . . . real, pure Magick . . . .filled with such exquisite wisdom, kindness and giving.  And the Beauty . . . so awesome.

Another Meteor . . .  this one goes straight to Jupiter . . . as if confirming my thinking.  The darkness  now infiltrated by the Light . . . the little bird in the tree (still don’t know who he is) . . . his amazing vocal chords . . . he’s been at it since 4am!  Others  join him now. . . from the forest . . . the oh so familiar sound of the Kookas . . . one by one they join . . .  together creating that Ozzie morning chorus.

I sit looking at Jupiter . . . he’s obviously playing a big part in this incredible morning.  I watch him moving westwards, no longer at the mid-point of the beautiful Tree.  I realize  . . . he’s not moving . . . I am!   I feel myself moving thru space . . . sitting on this massive ball, dangling in air . . . experiencing myself travel thru time . . .now that’s an awesome experience!

More light . . . morning’s arriving.  Have seen 4 meteor showers. . . . what real Magick!   A wondrous morning . . . out here at the beginning of this brand new day . . . then I remember . .  October 22nd . . . my dear, dear Mother’s Birthday.

Lots of emotion comes to the surface, tears and many memories. ‘Forgiveness’ arises . . . . I tried to ‘save’ her and I couldn’t.  Forgiveness has been turning up a lot this last week also  ‘Loving deeply’ . . . . first impressions were . . . jeez that’s way too hard!  It’s Saturn in Scorpio time . . .  these visits can be delicate.  Feelings go very, very deep . . . the foundations of our emotions.  We’re visiting Hade’s territory.

It’s been very tender . . . this last little while . . .  lots of emotions . . . lots of feelings.  Now I’m a Virgo . .  with a Moon in Capricorn . . . and Gemini Ascendant . . . emotions some times don’t get a look in . . . well that’s what I tell myself anyway!!!  But no way of ignoring them when the vacuum cleaner’s moving thru your psyche . . . a trip down to Hades . . . often isn’t a light one.

I think I sometimes forget I’m human . . . forget  I’m a woman . . . just live in my head . . . it can be very entertaining of course . . . but certainly not the full picture!  I’m not just a head . . . I’m a Body. . . I have feelings . . . emotions too . . .  even if at times  they confuse me and spark off a need . . .  to run for the hills.  Lots happening . . . well, I guess . . . when aren’t they?  But this cycle of Saturn is already been very revealing.

Completing the morning’s story . . . . my dearest Mum died during the last Saturn in Scorpio cycle.   A lot happened that year . . . 1982.  It’s now 2012 and there’s been many years of living since then.  Tender ‘things’ will always appear . . . but you know.  . . I think I’m learning to work with them . . . within myself . . . then there’s not such urgency to manifest them outwards.

Meteors, Jupiter, Orion and the Pleiades . . . . Saturn in Scorpio . . . and my beautiful Mum’s birthday . . . . it’s been a very BIG morning.

All I did was get up early . . .  sit outside in my comfy day-bed . . . look up . . . feel . . . . and receive all that was being given. . .  and that was considerable.

Life is Magick.

Enjoy you, Living

lotsa luv

exhaustion, cool air, new day, tears of gratitude

Sitting out in the coolness . . . the Sun’s not yet risen . . . in the bosom of my dear Mother . . . a hot day forecast.   Mr Solar’s rays could be furious.  But at present . . the air caresses with such gorgeous cool freshness . . . welcoming the day . . . with her tantalizing, wispy fingers.

I’m tired . . . very tired . .  you could say exhausted . . . a big day yesterday shopping, heat and long bus rides . .  some so bumpy, nerve cells  vibrating.  But it’s gorgeously cool now . . . the wind freshening my skin . .  I accept all the blessings . . . ’cause later, could be different.  Mother Nature’s amazing that way . . . so many complex sides to her nature.

The coolness is close . . . I snuggle into my favourite fleecy cape . .  the most gorgeous green . . . I wear it often . .  well, when it’s cold.  The winds keep blowing, but gentle and kind . .  I can feel the penetration . .  past the surface of my skin. Like all magick mornings . .  the chorus of bird life . . . exquisite in its beauty . . . healing in its vibration. Everything’s so still . . . so full . . . so loving. . . tears well . . . overwhelmed by the Giving. Life does give . . . in fact she’s giving every second . ..  with such exquisite abundance . . . such Beauty and Healing.

The cows . .  a few chomping . .  most still lingering in their resting . .  such a precious time . . .this Life of Breathing.  I feel her arms around me. . .  she cradles me with such pure Loving . . . again come the tears . . . oh how I’m Loved so completely.

I breathe in this Magick. .  it tingles . . . it dances . .  it sparkles . . . with Life Force . . . its Pure Healing Substance.  As it journeys thru my body . . caressing and healing . .  bringing back to Life . . . filling empty spaces.

It’s a miracle . . . I’m alive . .  and I live in Heaven . . . a Land so Sacred . . . beauty incomparable.  Right before our eyes . .  is everything we’re searching . . take it in . . thru every crevice.  Allow the Love to wash over your being, bringing Life . . . bringing your answers.

I feel so overwhelmed . . yes, I’m tired . .  but the Loving brings tears . . the majesty so pure. . . a purity so fine.  Life is giving each and every second. . . giving what?  Well, no words can describe it. Best you experience it for yourself . . . and then you’ll know it.  Go outside (if you can) . .  take a deep breath in, open your eyes . . . and see where you’re sitting.

Life is short . . .our opportunities limited . . . I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again . . my Gratitude flows over.  Breathe in the Magick!

lotsa luv . . .  marilynxxxx

experiencing the beginning . . . of another day

Out in the pre-dawn morning . . .  admiring Venus  . . there’s silence . . .then out of this silence . . . Life begins, expressing itself  in such joy-filled ways.  The magnificent Beauty of Venus . . . the delightful slither of the Moon . . .  as she prepares to end one cycle . . . . and soon begin another.  Melodic sounds begin piercing the air . . . the birds are up . . . there’s plenty of activity.

Laden clouds of mist . . .  hang heavily over the valleys . . . pink wisps of cloud herald the arrival of the Sun god . . . and his many magnificent blessings.  Magick all around . . . I breathe in this Sacred Prana . . . clearing my nostrils . . . filling my air bags.  It swirls thru my tissues  . . transforming all stale energy.  It brings Life. . . it brings Life . . . to all parts of my Body.

It’s getting closer now . . . not long, till the Sun bursts over the horizon . . . of forested woods . . . full of wildlife . . . creatures big and small,  some so tiny.  Life is happening . . . the Sacred has manifest.

Three ducks fly in unison . . . keeping each other company . . . balls of fog still lifting from the valley.  Must be chilly down there . . . on this cool Spring October morning.  A gorgeous Lorikeet . . .  flies close by me . . . things to be done . . .  lots of activity.

The Sun’s getting closer . . . it’s a very chilly morning . . . awaiting his presence . . . to bless us with his fire rays.  Flints of mauve colour begin on the mountains . . . the highest points now catching those golden beams.  The contrasts in the colours . . . . . . so subtle but exquisite . . . fog still hugging in crevices and corners.  Like ghosts they move . . . thinly spreading . . . slowly rising . . . like steam from a kettle.

At the base of the mountain . . . they’re creeping further . . . . dispersing in volume . . .  everything is alive . . . everything is living.  This gorgeous hue . . . now spreads generously . . along the tops of the mountains . . . the Sun still not come out of his hiding.  Gentle wisps of white cloud . . . so fine . . . and move so slowly . . . thru the early morning sky . . .  heading southwards.

The Sun has hit the top of the hill . . . under the mountain . . . where the cows like to gather.  It’s spreading quite quickly now . . . . his golden light magick.  Still no Sun visible . . .  here in the low parts . . . but over on the hill . . . a glorious light filled panorama . . spreading freely . . . his magick medicine.

It now covers the entire hill . . .  all over the mountain . . . Life is just Magick . . . so grateful for all this giving.  Ghostly clouds of mist still rising from their slumber . . . filling the spaces . . . with images of Neptune.

Still no Sun . . . my fingers are freezing . . .  it’s a cold Spring start to this October morning.

But then yes . . . he arrives . . .  and fills us with his magick . . . . thank you

Saturn . . . setting boundaries

Well you might ask . . what has cows got to do with Saturn . . . and boundaries?  That area where they’re standing is the northern boundary of ‘my’ property .  It’s been an ‘issue’ that’s occupied some of my head space for sometime . . . over the last 2 years (during the last Saturn cycle).  You see, the boundary fence is in the wrong place . . .  considerably further up than it should be . .  so the neighbours cows automatically congregate there, as that’s where the gorgeous dam is . . . then they continue on to my place.  I don’t  mind ’cause they keep the grass down . . . . and they’re nice to have around . . . when they’re not making a god awful racket . . . at 2am in the morning . . right outside my bedroom window!  It’s usually when Mum and Bub are caught on different sides of the fence . . .  it can be torture . .  . trying to sleep.  There have been times . . . when I couldn’t stand it anymore. . .  up out of bed . . . and chasing these bloody cows all around the paddock at 2am in the morning. . . . not impressed!  But they’re naturally sweet . . . of course  . . . when they behave!!

So I wanted my ‘own’ animals in the paddock . . .  then they wouldn’t get caught on different sides of the fence . . . and it’s nice to have your own  . . .I’d never send them off to the abattoir . . . shudder, shudder.  But this meant having a new fence put up in the right place so then the boundaries between the properties would be clear.  Well . . . you know how neighbours can be (of course . . . always sweet . . . not! . . Lets be real here (more Saturn)).  You see I moved to a small country town . . . and I was brought up a city girl . . . and I’m on my own and I’m female . . . so these country blokes reckon they have me pegged . . . . bloody infuriating.  I tried my best . . . I was friendly, I was considerate (my usual self), I was cheerful, I was polite and positive . . . but he continued (my male neighbour) to walk all over me.  Yes it did eventually dawn on me. . . . .BOUNDARIES marilyn . . . .YOU NEED BOUNDARIES!  And interestingly with this last Saturn in Libra cycle . . .RELATIONSHIPS . . . most definitely were huge learning lessons . . . . relationships of many different kinds . . .  not just the romantic/love kind.  I had relationships with my country neighbours, with the small village I’d moved to . . .  and the people in it . . . my own personal relationship ended (after a long time) . . .my relationship with my body . . . was centre stage . . . my relationship with the Land grew exponentially . .  my relationship with Energy . . . my relationship with myself . . . . . yes siree a super big cycle of Relationship lessons.

Anyway . . .I knew it was time . . . time for those boundaries . . . in all ways.  So called up the guy . . . and the fence is being done weekend after next.  Now that’s significant . . . ’cause it’s not just physical . . .  this is also energetic . . . .I’m creating my boundaries around me . . . . something that’s not always been easy for me . . .  with my saturation of Neptune . . . . Neptune dissolves boundaries . . . . which can be useful at times, yes . . but boundaries are also very necessary.  So I’ve set an intention . . . to create boundaries in my life . . . . and during this time as Saturn moves house . . . this is significant . . . . it’s a real accomplishment (more Saturn) for me . . . .  I’m making sure I’m safe and secure during the next Saturn cycle . .  in Scorpio.

Astrologers will often mention to look back to the last time a planet went through a specific journey . . . . Saturn last transversed Scorpio  back in 1982 -84.  Well I don’t have to think much to remember those years . . .  they were BIG.  I’d experienced a drastic change in environment . . .  I’d been living in an Ashram for 10 yrs and moved out it 1981 . . .  my dearest Mother was battling cancer . . .  she died, so young, in 1982 . . . I experienced pregnancies (a surprise!! didn’t think it was possible), terminations, extreme trauma, relationship breakdown (whilst pregnant) . . . heaps of unresolved emotions . . .  whilst hormones raged through me.  My dear brother in jail (he’s not a criminal) . . . he called from the prison pleading with me to bail him out before the end of the day . . . . some prisoners had put a contract out on him . . . and they were going to kill him that night. . . . fortunately I was able to do this, it took a bit thou! Yes Scorpionic energy was everywhere . . . and Saturn’s lessons needed to be learnt . . . unfortunately, sometimes it’s the hard way.

In 1984 my beautiful boy was born . . .at the end of such a concentrated time.  Such an amazing blessing he has always been . . .a very special soul . . . with a heart full of such beauty and love . . . I feel very blessed to have him in my life.  Yes Saturn’s lessons were hard . . .  I obviously needed to learn them . . .  but the rewards were magnificent.

I have no fear (more Saturn) of this coming Scorpio cycle . . .  in fact it feels magnificent . . . Saturn takes us on a ride . . . . up hills, over deserts . . . but always brings us to the most amazing oasis. . . . we need to trust this.  Saturn is solid . . . Saturn is real . . . Saturn protects with his boundaries . . . Saturn builds . . . . he’s so very wise . . . he understands the meaning of Time . . . he governs cycles . . . also the cycle of Life and Death . . . he’s there when we need to leave . . . . he teaches us all about Life . . .  he really is a very loyal friend.

So get to know your friend Saturn . . . no he won’t pamper your ego . . . he’s got his feet on the ground . . . and boy he knows about Life . . .  and he’s the master of these lessons.  So when the times get hard . . . listen more carefully . . . he’s trying to tell you something.  He’ll definitely be there when you stray off the path . . . . he can be strict . . . and a wee bit authoritarian.  But he knows what he’s doing . . . he’s taking you through life . . . now that’s pretty amazing . .  he actually constructs the very structure of your body . . . your bones. . . . the frame on which your body operates.  So if you’re experiencing Saturn symptoms look a little closer . . .  what is he trying to tell you . . . you may have wandered where it’s not safe for you . . . . he’ll be the first one there . . . to let you know.

So sitting on the cusp . . . as Saturn moves into a new home . . .  there’ll be lots of lessons . . . that’s for sure . . . . but listen to him . . . . he’s working for your good . . .  trust him . . .  and he’ll lead you to where you want to go.

Oodles of Love. . . . and bountiful Saturn travels

lotsa luv. . . .  marilynxxxx
