Blessings everyone. I know we’ve already been preparing for this Supermoon for a week now – but there’s another peak of intensity that comes one day before it is due – the Sun-Chiron opposition at 15 Vir/Pis ’23.
Chiron is the Wounded Healer, or the Soul Healer – Its energy represents the deepest wounding within you. When opposed by the Sun, your conscious awareness of the wound is amplified. You may ‘feel it more’ at this time. Chiron Retrograde is in Pisces, signifying that the the issue most likely has something to do with your spiritual path and connection with Spirit. The Sun is in Virgo and is finding practical ways of getting things done and working with matter to keep the rhythm of life in balance.
Many will be feeling the sense of wounding even more so with the energy of the Full Moon, as the Moon will be so close to it. Consider this opposition a prelude, or taster of what is to come. Don’t be worried if you suddenly start crying or remembering past things that hurt you – they’re coming out now so you can become aware of them, and find ways to heal them. Stay centered, grounded – and if you feel overwhelmed – find some sacred/quiet space and simply breathe. That’s a perfectly valid response to the overwhelming energy that this configuration can bring.
It’s a good idea not to wound others, or to place yourself in circumstances where you are likely to get wounded. Being by yourself (only if you can handle it) or in the company of a reliable support group is a good idea at this time.
Now this opposition and upcoming Full Moon aren’t the only exact aspects in the sky – as you can see in the graphic – there’s quite a few of them.
The Sun-Chiron opposition forms the backbone of a Kite formation involving the Juno-Vesta/Saturn-Chiron Retrograde Grand Water Trine (link provided). In this formation, the energy of the Trine gets channeled and bounced back and forth in the opposition. The focal point would tend to be Chiron Retrograde in Pisces, however.
We’ve also got the Final Grand Cardinal Cross of 2014, involving Pallas Athena, Pluto Retrograde, Uranus Retrograde and Juno. At present, Pallas and Pluto – and – Uranus and Juno are squaring one another at an orb of +/- 1 degree. That’s pretty intense. Through Juno, the Grand Cross feeds into the Grand Trine, and therefore into the Sun-Chiron opposition.
We also have a very powerful Yod (Finger of Fate) formed by a sextile between the Sun (focus, awareness) and Vesta (priest/essing, spiritual service, tending the sacred flame, regeneration), both inconjunct/quincunx Uranus Retrograde (awakening, breakthrough, surprise, suddenness, the unexpected). Again Uranus is already engaged in the square with Juno (see above) – so all these configurations are connected and energetically amplifying the pivotal Sun-Chiron opposition.
There’s other things happening in the sky right now, but these are the most important aspects of the lot. I’ve skipped an explanation of what each bring as I’ve covered all the aspects in the links listed below. The one thing I haven’t explained is the Yod – so here goes:
Sun/Virgo sextiles Vesta/Saturn/Scorpio both quincunx Uranus Retrograde in Aries. I see this as a sudden, fairly abrupt issue that may arise from something that seems ‘mundane’, perfectly ‘day to day’. The roots of the issue or event may be more obscure, rooted back in your soul’s biography. The issue will unfold in an almost explosive way – and powerfully challenge your understanding of yourself – and the sacred authority you bear within you – at this time. You have the choice between hubris and humility, so make it wisely. Some may even manifest this as some kind of unexpected physical event or encounter are Aries often relates to the physical body itself. With a Yod, you can never say if it’s ‘bad’ or ‘good’ – only that it’s sudden and will lead you to make decisions that will set you upon some new (or to revisit an old) curriculum of spiritual growth and evolution.
As I explained before ( http://wp.me/p4OUNS-62 ), we’re already feeling the dissolving, formless, culminating energies of the Pisces SuperMoon, coming on the 9th of September (at 9:38 am, GMT + 8). This is a ‘rough guide’ to coping with the energies. Each chart is unique, so take only what resonates. Go to www.astro.com get a free natal chart to see which house 16 Pisces falls into for you before proceeding.
Read the house that applies to you (in fact read all 12 if you like) – and also the sign that occupies your 12th house (associated with Pisces). So, if you have your 10th house in Pisces and your 12th house in Taurus, then read the entries for the 10th house and the 2nd house (as Taurus is linked with the second house). You can also read the 4th house (representing the Moon), or even whatever sign your natal Chiron is in. That’s getting pretty complex (for beginners to astrology – I intend on making a video soon to explain the basics of reading one’s chart) – but at the very least, have a read of the House your natal Pisces is in.
The general theme that will run through this guide is a calling for grounding, healing, nurturing and seeking out support from the Earth and Her facilitators. If you feel particularly vulnerable (read the linked article for more info), make sure that you’re with a reliable support group at this time and avoid being on your own. I emphasize this aspect owing to the conjunction of Chiron (Soul Wound, Soul Healer) with the SuperMoon, opposed to the Sun in Virgo.
Reminder: Piscean energy is one that seeks resolutions – transcendence through the evolution of detachment, and the simultaneous recognition that we are All One. Or… in its less evolved forms, resolution through escapism or denial or some kind. Bear in mind the need to respect the sensitivity and vulnerability linked with Pisces and the need to treat the self, and others as gently as possible. Again, if you’re feeling vulnerable and have tendencies towards self-harm, substance abuse, any kind of obsessive behavior – seek out your support groups. The possibility of wounding, suffering or pain of some kind is amplified by the SuperMoon’s conjunction with Chiron. Do not ignore sound professional medical or psychological advice – this report is not a substitute for that in any way.
1st – With Pisces in your Ascendant, you need to look at the physical body and whatever sense of wounding you have associated with it. Take extra care. Grounding/Earthing with the feet will be of particular benefit to you at this time. For some, meditation in Natural Spaces (woodlands, fields, lakes, etc.) would be of immense benefit. Take the time to enjoy the solitude and allow a deep regeneration of your Body, Mind and Spirit to happen. For those who are too sensitive to Piscean energy, grounding is great – but stay close to those who can and are willing to support you through rough phases. You do not _have_ to endure this by yourself, there are many who will be able to help you face your vulnerabilities or wounds, if you reach out and ask them to. And there is no shame in asking for help during this period – make sure the people whom you ask for help are reliable, competent and are skilled in the kind of help you require. (As my dad would say – there’s no point going to an eye specialist if you have a toothache…) This may also be a good time to seek help in diagnosing whatever ‘mystery ailments’ may have been bothering you – no matter which healing paradigm you use. – Also applicable for those with Aries in the 12th house.
2nd – With Pisces in your 2nd house, look to the flow of abundance in your life – it may be a source of income, wealth or (internally speaking) a mental construct that makes you believe you are well, cared for, strong, secure, (i.e. the self-esteem dynamic) etc. Chiron with the Moon in this house leads to the culmination of a particular issue which blocks, or hurts this flow of abundance. On the flipside, it can equally mean that you will ‘see’ or find a path ‘illuminated’ to answering your questions of how and why the flow of abundance has been blocked thus far – and how you can change that. Remember that Chiron is the Wounded Healer, and the Teacher – you learn so much and can teach and give so much once you have healed from its wounds. So prepare to learn to manifest what you want, in your life – and to share that knowledge with others. Perhaps therein lies one aspect of the abundance ‘puzzle’ you’re going to be working through now. It won’t be an ‘easy’ lesson for most, though. Grounding/Earth would be a good practice, just as making it a point to get out there and ‘In-Joy’ (enjoy) the pleasures of life. Not a bad time to enjoy the sensual side of life either, provided you’re not using it to ‘escape’ from the task of spiritual development and evolution – Also applicable for those with Taurus in the 12th house.
3rd – With Pisces in your 3rd house, the source of wounding-healing-teaching appears to be in your early childhood, ‘inner child construct’, your relationships with siblings and/or a source in your immediate day-to-day environment. It can manifest as an old childhood wound re-triggered. The 3rd house is also associated with the formation of perception, your ability to analyze, communicate and present yourself int the world. Those who have felt painfully shy or simply socially awkward, those who mistrust their own voice in the world, or their cognitive abilities may also see those insecurities amplified at this time. It is vital for you to take care of the wounded inner child at this time. Art therapy, counseling, having a heart to heart with your parents/siblings/people who trigger the wound, may be things for you to consider. Write down, speak out, express your feelings in some way. You can’t afford to keep them bottled up. Reading on ways to heal those wounds and coming to terms with them is also highlighted at this time – Also applicable for those with Gemini in the 12th house.
Pisces in the 4th House – In this position, you are likely to feel the source of Wounding as emanating from your family/home, mother-figure, domestic context – or even your deeper connections with your ‘tribal or collective identity’, connection with the Mother-Goddess-Gaia archetype and so on. The 4th house relates to that which makes you feel anchored, grounded, and gives you a sense of place in the world. It is what you fall back onto, your place of retreat at the end of the day (one hopes). If you can, solitude whilst communing with different facets of the Mother archetype in your spiritual practice would be greatly beneficial. If family-of-origin poses a problem, or triggers a painful karmic dynamic you feel you can’t overcome – then seek your ‘family of choice’ – your ‘tribe’ (be they on the Internet, or in person). Avoid major disputes on this day unless you are prepared to transform and teach those persons involved in your family unit (including yourself) – and they need to be willing participants as well. Know that communications are likely to be wrapped and warped in veils of mis-perception and games of projection on all sides, so try to resist the temptation to jump the gun. Keep an eye on the health of the mother, or nurturer-figure in your household. If you can handle the intensity of the Moon’s energies, you may well find pathways that illuminate a new way out of some long-standing, deeply entrenched yet till-now elusive karmic dynamic in your household. This also applies to those with Cancer in the 12th house. Owing to the Moon’s association with the 4th house, everyone is likely to see some aspect of this dynamic played out in their lives – in some form or another.
Pisces in the 5th house – The wounding/lesson/transcendence opportunity here arises in your relationship with children, or even your own ‘Inner Child’. Self-expression, playfulness, the sacred-simple-joy of innocence and reconnecting with the Creator/Creatrix within. Joining a play, drama, dance, singing, art-jam, music-making session – whatever makes you come alive allows your creativity to ‘flow’ – are good things to do at this time. This isn’t a time to surround yourself with people who are determined to criticize you on the basis of their life’s perceptions. Surround yourself with people who are accepting of who you are, or who simply allow you to ‘just be yourself’. Resist the tempation to ‘wear a brave mask’ and put on a facade today. You will find great creative resources in your willingness to authentically embody your vulnerability – without for the need of recognition, approval, etc. Those with kids may want to stay away from unnecessarily risky activities through this phase – no need to get neurotic or paranoid about it – it’s just not the day to go bungee jumping or cycling off a cliff…. (Note: The 12th house/Pisces energy is linked with suffering, and confinement – even in hospitals, etc.). Similarly, keep an eye open with your romantic partner – this may be a day for ‘wounding in love’, but I sincerely hope it is the kind of wound-lesson that leads to a dissolving of karmic ties and a deepening of soul-based love. This is applicable to those with Leo in the 12th house as well.
Pisces in the 6th House – Lessons of wounding/vulnerability/opportunities of transcendence/teaching come from your relationship with Service. There may be some confusion as to how you manifest a certain task (spiritual or otherwise) into being. It’s vital to stay ‘on the ball’ with the details. Ideally, you could bring in some of that amorphous, transcendental energy to help you shift rigid structures, procedures or routines in life. A little bit of a shake-up is not such a bad thing. Try to use this energy as one which can help you structure your life in a way that aligns with your Spiritual Values, and honors your Vessel of Service (the Body). Be on the lookout for attempts at berating or trying to shame you from those that feel they are your superior. They’re not – hold your ground in these cases Whilst everyone is a Servant of the Divine in some form or another, we are not bound to be anyone’s inferior or superior. This can also be a time where you are tested by ‘fake gurus’, ’emotional/psychic vampires’, narcissists, exes that haven’t let go of you yet, and others seeking to erode healthy boundaries in the name of Spirit or Love, whilst playing the ‘inferiority’ card (your, theirs, or both). You may also find extreme caretaking/nurturing/control dynamics in the guise of ‘being helpful’ at play with others pretending to be subservient or meek. Eyes open, as always – Keep those boundaries up, let in only that which resonates with you. This also applies to those with Virgo in the 12th house. You might also find this article of use – http://wp.me/p4OUNS-5m
Pisces in the 7th house – In this placement, the potential for wounding/transcendence/karmic resolution arises through your partnerships with others, and in your shadow self (i.e. those parts of you which you do not recognize in you, and so you draw to you via the mirroring effect of partnerships). Be delicate with dealings with your spouse, live-in partner or even someone you collaborate with at work. Remember that you are quite likely feeling just as vulnerable as they are, so remember to be kind on yourself as well. Know that whatever dynamics the other person is bringing up is helping you resolve something within you that has thus far been un-addressed. A good practice is to thank them for the lesson and reflect upon how it applies to you. Games of projection – as your suppressed shadow side is reflected in the faces of others – are bound to be rife at this time. Take nothing personally. On the flipside, if your partnership is strong enough to withstand – and even thrive through that particular sensitivity-vulnerability that Chiron-Moon in Pisces brings, you may just find a way to bring down a barrier that’s kept you apart. Make sure it’s not a healthy boundary that you’re eroding. Those with codependent or narcissist tendencies may want to begin journaling their thoughts to see if such patterns are coming to the surface during this SuperMoon. Remember that sacrifice in the name of love can be a powerful, beautiful and sacred thing – but it can also become a powerful karmic hook if done by an ego in desperate search of emotional security. This also applies for those with Libra in the 12th house.
Pisces in the 8th house – In this placement, your Pisces dynamics are likely to come through a variety of sources – but very often, it tends to be someone with whom you have committed and merged a significant portion of your energies. Perhaps in business, in sex, in other forms of intimate connection, and so on. Those working with Scorpio energies as a solo practitioner may find their challenge arising from within their subconscious itself (it always is the case, but you’re more aware that the Source is Your own inner dynamic). Experienced shamanic practitioners might find this an excellent time to do some interdimensional work, though empaths may find this a very challenging time to draw up their boundaries against the powerful ‘Ocean of Collective Emotion’ that Pisces represents. If you do go off to some far-off realm, make sure to have two feet planted on the ground. Not something to try unless you are absolutely sure of what you’re doing – seek out the guidance of an expert if unsure (in which case you’re better off not going that route just now). You may be called – no matter how you engage with Scorpio energy – to give up something, to truly make a Sacrifice of Spirit. (No, I’m not talking about some Hollywood style offering to a sadly vilified and misconstrued Goddess – see Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom) – but you may be truly asked to give up something which you feel entitled to control or have power over. And sometimes, that … my friends … is an invitation to Absolute Spiritual Surrender. This is extremely difficult for the Ego that seeks to control and be aware of what’s what, but is a necessary component for all those who Journey into the Dark, the Light, the Grey, the Rainbow – every aspect of the Spiritual Path. As with Libra, this is a wonderful time to dissolve boundaries in intimate partnerships – but make sure they’re dissolutions that you are okay with. Scorpio’s energies take this a step further – it is no longer the erosion of walls, but the merger and mixing of energies. If it’s against your will (and against your inner knowing) – then don’t allow it. You have that choice – I’m talking about Surrendering to the Divine, not to another person or material construct. This also applies for those with Scorpio in the 12th house.
Pisces in the 9th house – Your opportunity for wounding/transcendence/learning comes through the way you explore, expand your perceptions and understand your place in this wider world. Linked with a sense of adventure, optimism, dynamism and an intellectual-philosophical view of the world, Pisces in Sagittarius asks you to STOP. Sagittarian energy has a certain perspective of the way the world works. When it feels threatened it can move into a place of uber-judgment, rejecting all that potentially invalidates one’s view, and constantly moves – restlessly – from one experience to the next, for fear that it will be shown to be wrong. (That’s the not so great side of it).This is the time for the adventurer-philosopher (I think of Indiana Jones, Sr. and Jr.) to hang up his or her hat and realize that there is not need to go ‘out there’ to find what is already within. Divinity and the secrets of the Universe, the whole scope of consciousness and cognitive perceptions are all around you, and within you, at the same time. Whilst I’m not saying – don’t travel (though exercise proper safety precautions if you do), you don’t need to travel to confirm your spiritual path or paradigm. You don’t need to read another deep philosophical text or turn to a tradition to validate your connection with Source. You can, if you want to – but it’s not necessary as The Divine has been within you all the entire time. Try to avoid getting into disputes about which path is Right/Wrong as those debates are essentially fruitless. Even if someone sees things differently from you, that’s fine – neither of you are wrong, nor are you ‘right’ – you’re both equally valid shards of the Universe perceiving itself. Just do what you know works for you, and don’t force it unto others – deny them the opportunity to do the same to you. Remember – Many Paths, One Mountaintop (Destination). Teachers and preachers, take a rest if you can. The work you do is valuable, but it’s equally important for you to have a time out and simply receive. This also applies to those with Sagittarius on their 12th house cusp.
Pisces in the 10th house – In this house placement, the potential for wounding/transcendence-through-suffering/lessons learnt comes from your relationship with the Super-Ego, i.e. society’s understandings of ‘success, achievement, legacy, prestige, status, power and authority’. The 10th house represents our position in the public eye – how we are seen by society and the impression of our selves and efforts that we ultimately leave behind. On your tombstone, there will be a summary of what you did and who you were. This is the most direct representation of the 10th house – the legacy you leave. Those in the public eye, particularly as they represent spiritual matters or teachings which run against the grain of the structures and authorities we have been conditioned to believe will be ‘under attack’, i.e. facing intense criticism and scrutiny. Questions of – who are you to do what you do? who are you to represent yourself? will arise from those who particularly feel threatened by what and whom you embody. Answer from a place of integrity, but don’t let the words of the insecure get under your skin. As long as you are aligned with Spirit, do not allow your public acclaim, status or success become a reason for you to doubt yourself. The Universe knows what its doing, my friends. The worst thing you can do is become defensive – simply respond from a centered place. Such attacks or challenges can also trigger deep wounds which can then become ‘the grist’ of other teachings which you can then spread to the public. For others, whose lives and material achievements are out of alignment with Spirit, this may be a time where you experience a loss of some kind, or even a ‘fall from grace’ – and even this will be the start of a whole new journey in your spiritual understanding. Perhaps the ‘failure’ or ‘loss’ you might find now (if you operate from a very materialistic paradigm out of touch with Spirit) may be just the wake up call, or reality check you need to get back on track. I suspect this Moon will shift so many, and in such profound ways. – Otherwise, if you’ve always merged your public identity/career with Spirit, then you’re likely to find this Moon as one which highlights your service to humanity and awakens it to the attention of others. You might find yourself at the center of publicity, or the recipient of some public acknowledgement which you had not anticipated – treat this space with respect and caution. You know you’re not in it to ‘get famous’, you’re in it for your own contract with Spirit. This also applies to those with Capricorn on the 12th house cusp.
Pisces in the 11th house – Here, the wounding/teaching arises through your interactions with kindred spirits, friends, and networks of altruistic or other common associations (groups) – particularly ones which exist and communicate through social media or other technological means. If you are in a leadership capacity of some kind, or, if your presence in the group marks you as ‘different’, ‘unique’, or ‘revolutionary’ some how, you may be critiqued or targeted for it. This has strong resonance with Pisces in Capricorn (see above) as social media increasingly puts so many of us into the ‘public eye’. Watch your words, conflicts and expressions in any publicly viewable forums and channels. If you must speak your truth, be very clear with what you say – and do a little fact-checking (if possible) before you say it. Your words will have greater effects and make ripples to shores you weren’t aware of. Know that your friends may be projecting their own insecurities on you at this time, and that – at the end of the day – the only Being or Energy you ultimately have to answer to is Spirit-Within-You. You might have a great new idea at this time, or even a breakthrough in innovating something – keep your ideas to yourself unless you are absolutely certain they will not be twisted or misappropriated by those claiming to be ‘on the same team/vibe’ as you. The fact your inspirational channel or connection with Spirit is as strong as it is will make others uncomfortable – and their negativity (often disguised as concern or care-taking behavior) may come out in response to that. Just be you, and seek the company of those you can trust. Write those down groundbreaking, convention-defying ideas and wait for a good time to share them with the world. Never, ever, question your right to link with Spirit and learn as you do. If you’re with a good group of friends, kindred spirits who can handle the Pisces vibration, then this is the time for groups to come together and anchor the vibrations of peace upon this planet. Allow the boundaries that need to be dissolved, to dissolved, leaving only healthy balance in its wake. This also applies to those with Aquarius on the 12th house cusp.
Pisces in the 12th House – The Pisces Supermoon is at its strongest here as it will be in its home sign and house placement. Neptune Retrograde is already there… and so the energy will only be amplified in this case. For individuals with this placement, you are likely to be extremely sensitive to energies, to have some form of psychic ability, intuitive gift or empathetic nature (or all of the above). You are essentially the energetic sponge that absorbs all, that sees all, and the knows all – often to the point where you no longer know what you are feeling as an individual, as yourself. If you’re in a vulnerable place – seek out the support of a reliable friend/friends who can see you through a painful time. Losing yourself in anything – substances, sex, people, work, chocolate – isn’t the best way you can work with this energy (if that was what you were interested in). Those able to handle the lessons through sensitivity, vulnerability and wounding that Pisces offers will quite likely want to keep to themselves. You don’t need to interact with people in the same room to know what’s going on with them, and the world, in general. My take on this would be to seek solitude (if you’re up to it), and do grounding, centering and protective rituals or exercises. Sitting under a tree and visualizing a protective bubble of Light (invoking the Archangel Michael or other deity/being) – or sitting in a church/temple in quiet prayer or contemplation – or similar exercises where you can have a free, clear and uncluttered time and space to simply ‘Sit with Spirit’ would be of great use to many. (As always, if you’re not comfy with something spiritual/magickal – then don’t do it – read up before you try anything new and ask a trusted practitioner for clarification). You are being given the powerful front-row-seat opportunity to connect with Spirit at this time. Portals of information and revelations of truth can be opened to you, so use this energy wisely and do not fall pray to the emotional dramas of other beings. There is a reason why so many great spiritual teachers, have at some point in their lives, sought solitude and become hermits, or recluses. This isn’t the time for you to deal with the burdens of the world – because you feel that every day, already – but a time for you to connect with What is -Out There – and Within for answers to the questions you seek. You may be privy to extraordinary secrets or lessons of revelation from Source if you are willing to do the internal work of remaining receptive, grounded and Heart-Centered at this time. Again, not for the beginner on the spiritual journey. Take extra care of your physical bodies at this time as well – and make sure you get adequate nutritional support. This applies for those with Pisces on the 12th house Cusp.
The energy of Pisces is pure and transcendental – and very often the extreme nature of sensitivity it brings can be simply ‘too much’ for people and they turn to (sometimes dangerous) forms of escapism and denial instead. If you can’t handle it – you don’t have to – seek out friends, or support/therapy groups that will help. If you can, there’s a lot to be learnt spiritually through this energy, but make sure you are prepared to handle it.
This is a complex energy, and it will manifest differently for everyone. There’s a lot of Beauty in Piscean energy, but you don’t need a coping guide for that part of it 😀
Remember, just as there is no ‘One Path’ that will fit everyone, there is no ‘one recipe’ for healing the body, mind and spirit.

The Goddess, The Serpent and The Sea: Building Pathways of Light, or GSS, is the first Facebook Page I founded on the 5th of September 2013 (during the Virgo New Moon). It was this page that became my first public platform through which I could reach out, communicate with, share, explore and embody my growing spiritual consciousness. Today, on August 5th 2014, GSS has reached over 5000 souls and counting, in what is undoubtedly a Conscious, Growing Community of Love. I invite you to join this community if you so wish by going to: https://www.facebook.com/GSS.Pathway.Of.Light or @thegsspathway
I am reprinting here, the first article which I posted on GSS – much of the information resonates strongly with me still, even more so than it did before. My thanks goes to all members of this community, past, present, and future.
Blessings to All.

[Founding Article Reprinted Below: Original Imagery shown]
In ancient times, the world’s civilizations worshiped the Great Mother, honored the elemental and natural metaphysics of existence, living in peace with Nature. Women lived and served as priestesses in hallowed temples, celebrating their sacred connection with the Divine through their bodies, and often, their liberated sexuality. And everywhere the Mother was to be found, so too was the Serpent, and the Sea.
Many of these civilizations we have forgotten entirely, remaining in our collective memories through ‘flood myths’, folklore and a vague sense of recognition. The temples of Atlantis, Lemuria and Mu still call out to those who are willing to listen.
With the rise of the written word and the enforcement of patriarchal social norms, humanity lost its sacred connection with the Divine, with Nature, with its priestesses. And the world changed.
In an age where women are still abused and seen as unequal, despite monumental breakthroughs in science, technology, education and articulations of political equality – women are still are kept out of sacred spaces, their intuitive wisdom ridiculed and ignored, their sacred blood seen as wretched. There is no more cause to wait: It is time to Arise, Awaken and Be.
With Love, with Memory, with Connection, let us find our strength once again and re-build this broken connection, let us celebrate the sacred union of the Divine Masculine and the Divine Feminine to find ourselves whole once more.
Let us bring our priestesses back into the temples, back into the heart of spiritual life, alongside priests. Let us honor Nature and her fierce, wise and loyal Serpent and allow these energies to light the way for our future. Let us bridge the diverse religious and spiritual traditions of the world through the Gateway of Love in the Heart, the Gateway of Home in the Earth and the Ocean and the Gateway to the Cosmos in the Crown.
Let us commune with the consciousness of forgotten civilizations submerged by time and the oceans, supported by intelligence and compassion whose origins we are yet to comprehend. Advanced in their spiritual knowledge, they call out to us to bring back this path once again: Of Goddess, Serpent and Sea.
Arise, Awaken and Be
