October begins and ends with a Full Moon this year.
An arriving Full Harvest Moon on Thursday, October 1st, is followed by a Blue Moon at the end of the month on the Samhain, aka Halloween.
The harvest is in, the hunters are out, and bats are flying about.
The Samhain marks the approximate mid-point between the Autumn Equinox, and Winter Solstice.
Dark energies are making their ascension toward their peak on the Winter Solstice, the darkest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere.
After that, we can look forward to coaxing back the light, as our days slowly start getting longer again.
Our anscestors noticed the thinning of the veils around the Samhain, where the curtain between the physical/spirit realms pulls back, while blurring the fine between the coexisting material/spiritual realms.
What masks are you wearing these days?
Are there ghostly attachments of your old self wanting to be released?
Are there any hidden selves within you that want to awaken from the dreamtime?
For better and for worse, 2020 will be a year to remember when the old ways changed, and a new normal could not be denied.
If anything, the Virus has helped the general public to wake up to the plight of black people, indiginious people, and people of color.
But we can transform our spiritual DNA/lineage/geneology, and become change agents in humanity by celebrating our diversity within unity.
We are becoming the better angels of our Galactic Heritage.
Along the Thunderoad of a burned out American Dream, meditate on the ground that you are standing on is more than likely sacred tribal land, of indiginious people that belong to the land, not the other way around.
We are the Universe!
Here on planet earth, the spotlight has shined on the tenuous relationship between the police, and the communities they serve.
We need to focus on building trusting relationships with each other, especially between authority figures, people of privilege, those that are oppressed, and underserved.
The Me Too movement, along with Justice Ginsberg’s recent death is ringing a bell of mindfulness of a dying patriarchy, and echoing the call for racial, gender equality, and women’s rights.
Women’s suffrage in modern America is a 100 years and runnin’!
If there is any time to walk with one foot in spirit, and one foot in ground, the time is now because things are getting more intense on the planet, and will continue to do so.
Being in this space helps keep us from getting seduced from veering too far off from the middle of the road.
A New Moon in the middle of the month takes place on the 16th.
New Moons always reflect new beginnings.
Peak foliage will be waning by then, as darker days are rising in the still of the nights.
Bats reflect the power of seeing in the dark, through echolocation, an acute form hearing that is like seeing through sound vibrations.
In this way, their spiritual superpowers reflect clairaudience, or the powers of hearing spirit.
Where did that ancestral voice come from?
What spirits are calling out to you?
These are experiences that we tend to have more around this time of year.
Halloween is associated with costumes and masks.
Wearing masks in particular can help us awaken parts of our selves, and also letting go of the typecast of past attachments.
When you play with masks as spiritual practice, you can venture into portals of your old selves.
This can be a powerful ceremonial form of releasing the old ghosts that are no longer serving you.
Wearing masks unconsciously can create problems, shadow building, and feed false selves.
Think about the old children’s story about the Emperor’s New Clothes.
All his followers played into the emperor’s charade.
But everyone knows that the naked truth is that the emperor is exposed in his birthday suit for everyone to see.
Doesn’t this old story sound familiar today, in much the same way as President Trump’s eminence front as a successful businessman, coupled with his recently reported tax delinquency?
But then again, seeing his true colors, and his full monty for what it is, should not really be a suprise to anyone.
Predictibly, the Trumpites will probably continue to follow the party line.
When you find the courage to question the status quo, including your own worldview, what you once clung to as truths start to disappear, and collapse onto themselves.
It’s a put on folks.
Maximum economic profit, rampant greed, and economic strangulation is suffocating the air we breathe.
Some people lose their minds, go bizerk or even kill themselves or others when the the devil they know takes off its mask, and reveals its brilliant disguise.
We can predict that if Trump does get reelected, then the left wing movements will get louder, as the cultural divide will get wider, more chaotic, further backlash into a police state, and a drive toward more criminalization to establish order.
If Biden wins, which I think he will, there will be more intense backlash from the right wing, more bible thumping, louder calls for more religious fundamentalism, and zeolotry. MAGA will be up in arms.
Can you hear the callback to the old Woodie Guthrie tune, “this land is your land, this land is my land?”
The reality is, that here in America, we are all standing on indiginious land that existed before the arrival of Columbus.
The people already living here were sovereign, had their own cultural identity before their land was taken from them, and then were relocated against their will.
Violence, terrorism, and genocide were real experience for First Nation peoples.
The same thing happened to the indigineous people of Africa, who were taken from their land against their will, and then forced to work on command as free labor that made this country the weathy superpower that it is today.
Also, there were white slaves, who were once looked upon as standing on equal subserviant footing as the rest of the societal underclass.
And then the minority of the opulent saw that this could be exploited, by convincing the poor white man that he was a little better than blacks, browns, and indians.
We all know what the Natzis thought about Jews, and the LGTBQ crowd.
The Hidden Hand has been manipulating depressed whites to identify with the power and control of the upper classed white men, who held positions of power, many of whom abused that power.
This is basic psychology, in its darker, more manipulative, and egocentric forms.
Power to the people, and unity consciousness of we the people is more in alignment with the New Aquarian Earth Age that is awakening on the planet today.
But then again, it’s just an old school respect for the Golden Rule.
Till we tweet again peeps,
