Lugnasadh

Sun, 06 Jul 2008 14:54:00 +0000



FESTIVAL OF TRANSFORMATION

Lugnasadh marks the mid point between the Summer solstice and the Autumn equinox. It is the full moon with the sun in Leo. In nature it is the end of the flowering season and the beginning of the fruiting season.

At this point the astral planes have been completely filled to overflowing and the energy is forced to back itself upward in a reversal of energy flow. The days are now getting shorter but there is still more daylight than darkness. This means the energy is flowing out of the earth and making things grow and mature from the lowest levels to the higher levels. The resolution of each level will bring about the physical harvest.

We receive the first fruits of our labors at this time. In gardening terms we have gotten rid of all the weeds and damaged plants. We are putting all of our efforts into the final healthy ones that are left after the culling and weeding. What we have left is what we are going to work with. Our harvest will depend upon what is physically manifesting right now. We are impelled to do those things that are physically important to us and rushing to finalize important and critical events before it is too late to change them.

This symbolic joining of male and female energies leads to the crowning Christ Light of the Initiate and Priest-King. The key events of the past year find their way into physical manifestation and set up the key events for the coming year. It is the harvest at the autumn equinox that gives the seed for next years crop. At this time the Priest-King's life is surrendered in service to those that recognize him.



The Summer Solstice

Thu, 29 May 2008 23:19:00 +0000


FESTIVAL OF JOY

The Summer solstice marks the middle of the flowering season. The official beginning of summer it is also the longest day of the year and marks the shortening of daylight hours. This time corresponds to the EIGHT cards of the Tarot. There is a reversal of energy flow as the days begin to get shorter. The flow of energy is now from the earth outward.

The Christ Festival of the full moon immediately preceding this corresponds to the SEVEN cards of the Tarot. At that time key events and individuals in the astral worlds received a down pouring of spiritual energy to ensure they would become physical reality. In practical terms we pruned and weeded our gardens and projects getting rid of things that were not making it and paying attention to those that were left. We sorted out our plan of action to carry us through the summer.

Now at the time of the Summer solstice all astral activity takes place from the earth's core upward. There is forced expansion at all levels as the earth produces material things to ensure the harvest will be complete. In nature the flowers mature at their full size. Our plans materialize and manifest in their first physical forms. In gardening terms we can see the plants that have grown from the seeds we have sown. They are young and still need to be cared for and mature before they can be harvested.

From a spiritual perspective light pours into the minds of men and we are able to perceive clearly and understand truly the things that need to be done. We are given illumination and clear vision concerning the important affairs in our lives. We have a plan of action that is inspired.

There are three alchemical stages that correspond to this time of year.

LESSER STAGE
This is the stage of separation and distillation. The process of analysis and extraction divides the subtle from the gross and we can see for the first time the unrealistic aspects of our hopes, wishes, and dreams. We can see what we are doing wrong and also what we are doing right. We gain personal understandings of ourselves that helps us to be more effective. The lesser stage always involves personal transformation and healing as we align ourselves correctly with the new energy. This is where we learn from our mistakes. Things are not working out and we gain insight into why they have failed.

GREATER STAGE
Here is the stage of sublimation and vaporizing. We attempt to transform our lives into something higher and more refined. We receive illuminations and new insights that transfigure our understanding and we see things in a new way. We gain understanding of what we must do to achieve the things we want in life. The Greater Stage is always one of personal empowerment as we apply in physical life the things we have learned. In this stage we strike out on our own to make our own way in the world. We have the courage to do those things that we want to do.

AFTER STAGE
This is the alchemical stage of projection and the proving of the perfect. Here we have become a catalyst to others. By casting forth our light or wisdom into the world we transmute all that we touch into spiritual gold. By being ourselves we help others progress on the spiritual path. The After stage always involves our interaction with other people and with society in general. It is in the after stage that we become public figures that have the ability to sway public opinion.



Beltaine

Thu, 03 Apr 2008 22:00:00 +0000

The Fire Down Below


(image)

Beltane marks the midpoint between the Spring equinox and the Summer solstice. Traditionally it is the full moon with the sun in Taurus. It signals the end of the leafing season in nature and the beginning of the flowering season. It also marks the end of the Water initiation and the beginning of the Air initiation.

This time of year corresponds to the SIX card of the Tarot.
The astral levels are merging during this time. Our "baptism" or Ascension is at an end and our future is secured. As the levels merge there is an outpouring of love upon the entire world. They merge from the top downward and the resolution of these energies acts as a spiritual blessing on those whose life is affected in their downward movement.

The energy that has been coming into the earth since the winter solstice as reached an intensity or concentration where the astral layers can not contain it and they rupture or merge allowing things that exist on the higher astral levels to move to a lower level and become closer to physical manifestation.

These Key events cast ripples of cause and effect onto the entire world. It marks the beginning of the Transfiguration or the Unification of our lives if we are prepared for it.
This is a symbolic joining of male and female energies in a spiritual marriage of unity, fertilization, and blessing. Nature rejoices in a flowering growth as life matures and comes of age. Everything holds a promise of the bright future that lies ahead.

The key events of our lives for the coming year are at this time embedded in the fixed etheric levels and the energy within them reaches a climax during the following full moon known as the Christ Festival as that energy begins to back up with no where else to go. This energy is preparing those key events in advance and happens before the physical manifestation of astral events can occur.

As the energy pours into the lower levels it reaches the core of the earth and begins to back up with no where else to go but up. This brings the activation of the lower energy centers and the increased sexual passion we feel in the spring. The Beltaine fires are the fires down below that are stirring and bringing forth new life and prosperity in many guises.
 



The Spring Equinox

Thu, 20 Mar 2008 21:22:00 +0000

Life Bursting Forth!


(image)

There is a four beat to nature's cycle and to life's cycle. At Yuletide or the winter solstice the next years energy pours into the earth as light and spiritual energy. This energy is a tide that moves through the astral planes surrounding the earth. It moves from the top downward and infuses the lowest layers by the time of the spring equinox. This first cycle is also known as the quickening as new life is preparing to be born within the womb of mother earth. All is hidden beneath the winter snows.

This first beat is nearing completion and we can look forward to the second cycle as it begins at the spring equinox in March. The second beat of the cycle involves the energy continuing to stream into the core of the earth and piling up with no where to go except backward and upward toward the original source. We percieve this reverse current as the earth bursting forth with new life from the ground upward. This has also been termed the birth.

The third beat is the summer solstice and the fourth beat is the fall equinox. Of equal interest are the midpoints between these four beats. The midpoint between the winter solstice and the spring equinox has passed. Candlemass or Imbolc was the full moon on the 3rd of February this year. The midpoints are lunar festivals triggered by the respective full moons.

We are now dealing with the time period between this midpoint and the spring equinox. At this time as the new energy fills the lower astral levels it is also blending the astral layers and moving between them. There is a vertical movement as things struggle to find their rightful place according to how much of this new energy they contain. Those with the most get the favored positions and those with less move to secondary spots. The year's harvest is already being set up in advance. This is a fierce struggle for life in a finite space. Something has got to give. Some have got to lose and others will gain. As I mentioned in my last post we should all know by now what kind of spring we might expect.



Spring Is Here!

THE FESTIVAL OF PROMISE

This time of the year is the Spring equinox and is linked to the following full moon and Easter. It corresponds to the FIVE cards in the Tarot. It is the official beginning of Spring but also the middle of the leafing season and the middle of the Water initiation.

All of the levels of the Spirit planes experience forced growth and expansion to full size at this time. Our spiritual "baptism" or Ascension begun in the Festival of Dedication continues and that spiritual energy forces our long range goals into view. At this time we are given great visions of our future and hope we may achieve our desires. Society is forced to accept our future plans and alter itself accordingly level by individual level within the astral planes.

Being granted a clear vision of our future inspires us to begin our spiritual quest in earnest. We start by learning to master our emotions and our love. There are three alchemical stages that correspond naturally to this time of the year.

LESSER STAGE

This is the alchemical stage of Solution where the ashes are dissolved into a liquid form by the addition of spiritual energy. The missing details and hidden aspects of our future life are filled in so it becomes capable of becoming physical reality. Our wishes, dreams, and inspirations are brought into awareness and we struggle to discover some way of making them real. We do this with the help of the spiritual energy we have received. We are given a second chance to start fresh and try again.

GREATER STAGE

At this stage our wishes, dreams, and inspirations are potential parts of humanities and our own future. We nourish and feed these astral creations with our love. They grow more and become more glorious as they develop and move downward into the fixed etheric regions of the Spirit planes. They take the final forms they will have in physical reality. We have become established within society.

AFTER STAGE

This is the stage of multiplication and propagation. In the Spirit planes our life's work is fully created and set out before us. Now the implications of our life's work show up as future life acts and catalyst for key events in humanity's future. Ripples of influence spread out in all directions in a willingly creative act that multiplies itself. The act of giving love multiplies that love and increases its fire. Astral events have reached a point where the momentum has built up enough to be self- sustaining. We change the lives of those we come in contact with.



Samhain

Wed, 19 Sep 2007 21:08:00 +0000

Happy Halloween!



FESTIVAL OF PEACE

Samhain is the mid point between the autumn equinox and the winter solstice and corresponds to the ACE cards in the Tarot deck. It is also related to the Festival of the Immaculate Conception of Our Lady which is the final resolution of the Magical planes immediately before the winter solstice.

This period is the end of the fruiting cycle in nature and the end of autumn. It also marks the beginning of winter in terms of snow and freezing weather.

The astral activity is still on the Magical planes as the astral layers merge together in an upward movement away from the earth. This is a symbolic joining of male and female energies as the old fruit of the past year is given to the earth in total sacrifice. It is the planting of a seed for the coming year.

This time period naturally marks the end of the crucifixion or enthronement period and the beginning of a new birth or resurrection. Some traditions consider this the beginning of the new year. In some occult traditions this marks the beginning of the initiation cycle of Earth as the probationer is granted entrance and awaits the first initiation.

The Earth cycle is also the last cycle of the initiate so this time also marks the natural last initiation of the advanced initiate into the final mysteries of the Earth. The probationer will experience a new birth and the advanced initiate will experience a resurrection and lifting up as the Magical levels resolve themselves during this period concerning the projected events of the coming year.

Said in plain and simple language the spirit is leaving the earth and entering the seed. What is left is the husk of what once was in the physical. This husk is the final harvest of earthly things as we turn inward toward spiritual things.

It is said that the veil between the seen and the unseen is the thinnest at this time of year. If we think of Beltaine in the spring as when the astral bursts forth into the physical world Samhain is the time when the physical bursts forth into the astral. We may at this time of year be more conscious of the unseen astral worlds and the entities and spirits that dwell in them. We might also travel or enter the unseen worlds more freely at this time of year.

This is tied to the full moon with the sun in Scorpio. This year it actually falls before the traditional observation of Halloween.



Autumn Equinox

Tue, 31 Jul 2007 23:38:00 +0000

FESTIVAL OF CONSUMMATION This relates to the TEN cards in the Tarot deck. This is the Solar Festival of Consummation and a full harvest of what has gone before. Here we achieve the natural results of our labor for the past year. The seeds we have planted give the full physical results and we receive that which we have earned. This time brings us either crucifixion or enthronement. As the sun enters Virgo anything in the astral that can physically manifest this year will. Virgo is the most earthy time of the year.What we spend our time on now is last minute activities and reaping the harvest in preparation for the autumn equinox. The autumn equinox marks the close of the year for our personal efforts. We are so busy experiencing the consequences of our harvest it is difficult to give time to the future. If possible it is best to do both.At the autumn equinox there are no more alterations of coming events for the coming year. They are now permanently set within the fixed etheric levels and programmed to become physical reality as the year unfolds. The autumn equinox marks the end of our personal efforts and Samhain marks the beginning of the new year at the end of October.This time period is linked to the first full moon after the equinox and involves a forced expansion on all levels of the astral planes. At this time the astral planes are swelling with energy as all true initiates use this energy as a light for others. This is where spiritual understanding is put into action to achieve physical results. In occult traditions this is the time of year when the initiation into the mysteries of fire takes place. There are three stages of the alchemical process that naturally occur during this time of year.In summary this time period between now and the autumn equinox produces both a physical harvest and creates the astral seed for the coming year. The physical harvest acts of its own accord. Our efforts do not affect it. Our efforts affect the major events in our lives through the coming winter,spring and summer by establishing them firmly within the astral planes where they will be allowed to grow.LESSER STAGE This is the alchemical stage of conjunction and putrefaction. This is where high spiritual expectations merge forcefully with physical reality and die because they are not realistic. This energetic union between subtle and gross is called the Chymical Wedding. The resulting death of ideals as they rot into blackness create what is known as the FIRST MATTER.GREATER STAGE This is the stage of fermentation and leavening. Here there is a general stirring up and excitation that enters into our lives. We attempt to put our thoughts into action to achieve physical results. We try to give service and help others to grow spiritually. This is also where we experience the creation of the"soul body" when we are ready for that experience.AFTER STAGE This is when we naturally experience the physical harvest, the completion, glorification, and Sabbath of the Great Work. This reflects the causal link between the astral and physical reality made manifest for the first time in our lives as physical results.[...]

Full Moon, Sun in Gemini

Sun, 06 May 2007 22:05:00 +0000

The full moon with the sun in Gemini is known as the Christ Festival in memory of the ascension of Christ into the heavens after his crucifixion. In pagan circles it is more noted for the distinct change in the earth's energy at this time. The upward rush of earth energy reaches its resolution in a magickal wave of flowering.

If we use the metaphor of planting a seed in the garden we can say that divine light energy enters the seed at the winter solstice and begins to fill it and fill the earth. By the spring equinox both the seed and the earth are filled to completion and the energy begins to back up. This is experienced as a flow of energy out of the core of the earth and out of the core of the seed in a reverse current. This is what the sexual fires of Beltaine celebrate.

These invigorating energies give life to the seed and to the earth causing life to grow. By the full moon in Gemini the seed has turned into a plant or died. That is the way for ideas and other things as well. By this time our plans have been put into physical action. Our ideas have manifested physically and now they need to grow and mature. The ones that are impractical have been cast aside to make way for the ones that have survived.

We don't know what kind of harvest they may bring but we need to pull the weeds and tend our gardens. This means to take care of what we already have and nurture it. Our main plan of action for the summer and fall months is in effect. We know what we need to do.

The Earth is waking




By now everyone should know if they are in for an intense spring or a normal one. The lunar cycle acts like a giant heart beat that circulates this years energy and it is having some trouble. When the energy needs to find new pathways we feel it as stress and big things happening in life.

Blockages mean nothing at this time of year. In nature the seed buried in the ground cracks open with a force so violent that it can crack rock. If you feel this kind of energy in your life prepare for an interesting summer and fall. The shell that encases you is going to crack wide open.

There is newness in the air and raw power. Expect mother nature to assert herself as she struggles to right the earths ecological balance. This means storms and natural disasters combined with unusual weather conditions. It also means the incredible beauty of unrestrained nature and her passion for life.

This springs energy is going to stir us and awaken us at some very deep levels. It's already happening. 2007 is the first year of the earth settling into the energy and ways of the new eon. In past years there were traces of this new energy but the old energy dominated. This year for the first time the new energy dominates and it is doing some house cleaning as it circulates through earth's astral planes bursting through barriers and finding its own pathways.





Romantic Love

Sun, 04 Feb 2007 15:39:00 +0000

Happy Valentines Day! The Earth is waking Why do people fall in love? Why do people fall out of love? These are questions that have been asked for as long as people have fallen in love. We fall in love because there is a need for what our partner provides. Love is a symbiotic relationship that goes to our core.There are marked differences between the sexes that need to be openly stated and discussed. Males and females each follow different paths of ego development. The book "Men are from Mars,Women are from Venus" touches upon these striking differences. We each create what the other craves and needs.Most of us dream of a soulmate relationship with a partner ideally suited for us, someone that would complete us in all ways. Just about everyone would like that experience. To aspire to this type of romantic love relationship is one of the most selfish things possible. Such a relationship would contain only two people and leave out the rest of the world wouldn't it?At least that is the fear of many people when they see two lovers caught up in each other. Friends, family and job often suffer and take a lower priority and importance than the romantic partner. The collective suffers. To become too involved in love threatens the social structure and the survival of the community. We don't have time any more for our friends.Our society and culture actively encourage us to think of others, to think of national interests, our political party, favorite charity, job and community. Society and culture are constantly trying to find new ways to separate us from our romantic partner. It is not surprising so few romantic love relationships ever last. There are so many powerful forces in each of our lives working against it from the very start.We are taught being selfish is wrong and this is the fundamental point we must come to terms with if we ever want romantic love and have it last. Being selfish and wanting love and a romantic partner is a good thing and not a bad thing. Society and community will benefit from romantic love relationships. Family is at least as important as the security of our nation.Should we deny ourselves happiness in life and suffer for other people or should we live for our own happiness and share that happiness with those around us? To experience romantic love we live for our own happiness and follow a course of action that will find us an appropriate partner.What is it that makes romantic love so special? Why do we feel alive and vibrant when we are with the person that we love? Why does that person make us feel complete?It is this feeling of completeness that really defines romantic love. In this feeling of completeness we feel that we have a self. This feeling of completeness makes us feel like a person, like an individual. We feel complete and it feels good! We feel important and loved as much as we love. We also feel all we need is the love of our partner and that is the danger.Most of us have experienced that intense emotional experience called "puppy love". This is a soul level experience and involves our capacity for love. In "puppy love" we have a giant crush on somebody and give all of ourself to this person gladly and willingly. We expect that same intensity of love in return and when it is not returned we are no longer as young and innocent as we were before.From this point on we earn the love and respect of any potential romantic partner and it is not an easy road to follow. To find love we first find self esteem and learn to love our own self.Love and respect exist on every level. We develop the capacity for self esteem and love with our entire being. The only way to do this is to find someone to interact[...]



Predictions for 2007-Building Bridges

Sat, 20 Jan 2007 17:36:00 +0000

The Earth is waking


I was reading some predictions for 2007 at the local coffee shop and thought it might be interesting to give some info on what I sense happening this coming year.

To begin with, the New Eon is here! The energy grid for the new eon is in place and functioning. The earth and all life forms are energy systems powered by the dual forces of positive and negative energies. Just like your computer working on alternating current, the universe is driven by its own alternating current.

What will this be like? Imagine the entire world placed in a microwave and the power being turned on! Things will be heating up from the inside out! Alternating current now dominates our world and it reflects the natural duality of the universal energies. Alternating current is flowing through us as well.

We can call these two forces Spiritual/Light energy and Earth/Life energy. They are active within us as our Holy Guardian Angel or Higher Self and our Shadow or Power Animal aspect.

Within us these aspects are plugged into the new energy and surging with thousands of volts coming from the earth's energy grid for the first time in a serious manner. Both our inner angels and inner demons are surging to life with a vengeance. We can expect humanity to continue polarizing along spiritual/materialistic lines. We can also expect more outbursts of psychotic behaviors-good and bad-as people struggle with these two giants.

The safest course of action is to connect and integrate these power sources as soon as possible to protect yourself from stray events that will be flying around like bullets. Plugging into this new energy and getting it first hand will be difficult with increased craziness but like a flu shot it will protect you from the worst yet to come.

As people and events zap you during the coming year remember being zapped is a minor adjustment. You may feel drained but hundreds of small zaps are much better than an intense lightning bolt that shatters your life with the force of its intensity. Your connection to both inner power sources will help "ground" static charges that you may encounter.

Violence happens when the energy must move and there is no other way. When the voltage gets too high it leaps across the chasm like a lighting bolt. Build bridges to make ways for this energy. Don't try to hide from it.



Candlemass or Imbolc

New Life!



For good or bad we have received our portion of light to last through the coming year. It lies dormant within us like a medicine that we have taken but it has not hit the bloodstream. As the days become longer the energy flow through the earth is reversing. A purging process needs to take place very much like priming a pump.

This happens at the first full moon after the winter solstice. Fortunately this year January 3rd is the full moon and this is approaching quickly. We will feel the lingering effects of the winter solstice and the Christmas Holidays through the New Year's celebration.

Throughout the coming month it will be a gathering of these new forces in preparation for shooting them forth as the first new life energies of spring.

After the 3rd of January this new energy will hit our systems and we will feel it subjectively within ourselves. The first compression or pulsing does not happen until February 2nd. That is when this energy will shoot through our bodies and the earth for the first time.

In the meantime it will churn within us and activate dormant areas preparing them for new life and activity. This will not always be pleasant.



The Incoming Christ Light at Christmas

Thu, 14 Dec 2006 01:28:00 +0000


Feel the Cold!



Yuletide and Christmas is a time of giving. Instinctively many of us feel the rightness of giving love and support at this time of year. There is a metaphysical reason for this.

The winter solstice marks an important turning point where the days stop getting shorter and begin to get longer. This leads to a reversal of energy within the astral worlds. But there is something even more important that happens at this time of year.

There is a massive inpouring of love and light from the Cosmic at this time. We call this the return of the Christ Spirit. During this time we each receive the quantity of spiritual light that will be used throughout the coming year. This spiritual light is like money that we can spend anyway we wish but when it is gone there is no more until Christmas of the next year. We use this for reaching our goals and for protection.

The lunar cycle and full moons during the year act like a giant heart beating and circulate our energy through the astral worlds. When we encounter resistance or danger our energy is depleted and used up. If we have enough to begin with and use it wisely there will still be some left as Christmas nears the next time. If our light is gone we will be experiencing dark times indeed.

Instinctively we realize this and as Christmas nears we empty ourselves of any remaining light that we have. We do this by unselfish giving to those we love and to those in need. The old light will be no good in the new year and must be spent or it will be wasted. In addition by emptying ourselves we ensure that we can receive as much of this Christ energy as possible when it comes to us.

I have felt this light come into my heart many times during Christmas Eve. It is truely a time for rejoicing.

bright blessings

Winter is coming!

Sun, 05 Nov 2006 21:59:00 +0000

Feel the Cold!



Samhain or Halloween has come and gone along with the colorful leaves. The final harvests have been brought in from the fields and it's time to button up for cold weather. I just threw away the old Jack-o-lantern.

In terms of energy and life events it is time to consolidate our positions and stockpile our reserves. For me this means getting Anarchist World ready for Yule Tide and Christmas.

In the ancient mystery schools and religions this time of year was a time of initiation and introspection. People spent more time indoors and there was not as much to do.

New energy comes into the world at the winter solstice. That is why it is a sacred time. From now until then preparation is the key word. Metaphorically the seed is in the ground under the snow waiting for the incoming light at Yule Tide to vitalize it. When the harvest is done the seed is planted to rest in the ground over winter. We make our final preparations because soon it will be too late.

I think back over the past year and wonder at how much has been acomplished! It seems amazing.

It was only last February that I first began posting episodes of Anarchistic Knight:Apprentice on the internet. That grew through the summer into the publishing of six serialadventures reaching out to vastly different audiences. Each has been successful, some more than Anarchist Knight:Apprentice has been.

In addition Anarchist World was created as a focus or gathering spot for my own projects and for others of like mind to use as they choose. Anarchist World is a very solid project and I have big plans for it in the future. It is already gaining in the search engines.

Lastly like a dream come true Anarchist Knight:Apprentice is now available both as a download and as a paperback book. These are my realities as the winter solstice nears. I have done well this past year. It was a good harvest. Next year will be even greater!



Autumn Equinox

Thu, 05 Oct 2006 01:33:00 +0000

Welcome to Anarchist World!



The autumn equinox is here bringing a very special kind of energy and closure. In the question of predetermined destiny vs. freewill we remain caught within the consequences of our earlier actions. Things we have set in motion in the past determine what we experience today.

Free will does exist in that the main events of the year are determined and created astrally up to one year in advance like a printing que on a printer. The autumn equinox is when the cosmic clock marks the time and says "that's all for the coming year".

Any plans or projects that haven't physically manifested by this time need to be withdrawn and re-evaluated for submission into next years potential events. They can be resubmitted in the spring with new energy and vitality.

The time period between now and Samhain or Halloween is when the astral is "re-booting" itself in preparation for printing out the new list of events and activities. This is also the time of the final harvest of the year when physical events mature to their fullest.
