The Taurus Full Moon always presents an opportunity to consolidate in a lasting fashion the change initiated at the New Moon which began the 28-day cycle it culminates. At this particular lunation, Maya points to the "realignment of government and security structures." This Full Moon's significance in relation to the upcoming presidential election is cryptically summed up by the Sabian symbol:
"A step must be taken, yet an abyss confronts evolving humankind...."
Humanity is indeed evolving, as we currently live a veritable renaissance of consciousness-raising options, paralleled in the social sphere by a globalization of progressive awareness. Will the current rate of evolution be enough to carry us over the abyss of a military, mind-controlled empire which seems to gape before us? The choice is in each of us. This Full Moon provides a power window, activated by those of us who truly put our will into spiritually and socially aware initiatives at this time.
Pre-Prayerations of Timely Pagan Magic
According to ancient nature traditions, this is the Blood Moon, and it is associated with honoring all animals that have given their lives so that we may eat them. This rite adds an interesting dimension to Samhain, embracing other species within the scope of those who have made their transition. From this point of view, we are called on to remember our connection to all beings before us who have made their effort within their particular context of incarnation.
Now, at what is to all appearances a critical time in human and ecological history, we renew our connection to the good in our blood, and in the blood of all beings that have gone before us and who have willed and worked to contribute to our freedom from physical, political and spiritual limitation. The prayer suggestions shared below will catalyze that link, and we may prepare our altar, dress and/or or meditation space for that purpose with the aid of treasures, touches, candles and garments in tones of blood or deep red, including such graphic additions as red wine, cranberry juice or deeply colored water. This is a power color we have been taught to fear, just as we may doubt using our own power as part of a spiritual practice. Now is the time to prove we are willing to use it, with such symbolic invocations and with our most effective actions and prayers, such as those shared a bit further on.
Further pre-prayer your space, using your imagination to add mementos of those beings gone before you who you feel have been of help: a bone, the name of a pet or speciesmaybe an endangered specieswritten on a piece of paper, pictures of your ancestors, of truly empowering dear ones, of spiritual and/or activist leaders who have opened bridges now important to you (such high-vibration individuals will also offer special protection and prayer-empowerment now), even a stick or other token from a redwood or oak tree, both sacred, and both great healers subjected to ecological ravages....
After preparing yourself and your space, light incense in the clear awareness that it is an offering to all ancestral beings who have made an extra effort on behalf of the collective of which you form a part.
Affirm to Make Firm the Effects of Good in Our World
Earth as we know it may not be our ultimate destination, but neither is trashing it and/or passively allowing certain entities to wreak rapid destruction on its face. The current administration (which I plant an image-seed for its being past by the time many of you read this) has not only been bad for the environment, it seems as though it may have been truly on a campaign to destroy it as rapidly and completely as possible, which in fact one anonymous writer believes is the case, "so that when they ditch the planet and head to the destination, nobody will be able to follow them."
This may sound a bit fantastical, but really the administrations approach to nature is quite surrealistic. Whatever love we have for all those who have worked and died little or big deaths to facilitate our lives and opportunities, whatever love we have for ourselves, for Gaia, for our descendants who will go to collect whatever fruits we leave them, this Full Moon-Samhain-elections portal is the time to really make a statement with our willpower applied in effective prayer and action.
This true and active disposition will connect us with the formula outlined by the Sabian symbol for this lunation: "A link must be built through the power of the collective mind of the group, on the basis of the legacy of the past, to make a bridge over the canyon."
The following words are designed to light the magical candle of your will and to empower that will by connecting it with the will for good of all past, present and future beings. This will not only move you to make the extra effort, but will literally open invisible doors to make your dreams of a better world come true.
Repeat them with your attention on your heart area:
I WILL TO DO WHATEVER IS NECESSARY TO EXPRESS THE HIGHEST AND BEST EFFORT ON BEHALF OF THE POWER OF GOOD. MY WILL, EXPRESSED WHOLE-HEARTEDLY WITH THOUGHTS, WORDS AND ACTIONS ON BEHALF OF GOOD, ENLIVENS THE BLOOD RUNNING THROUGH MY VEINS, AND CONNECTS ME WITH THE LIFE-BLOOD IN ALL THE GOOD, STRIVING SOULS IN THE PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE. WE CONNECT IN A FLASH OF CONSCIOUSNESS ACROSS THE COUNTRY AND AROUND THE GLOBE, ENFOLDING THE ENTIRE PLANET WITH VICTORIOUS WILL POWER FOR GOOD NOW!
Prove Your Will
1) Repeat the above treatment aloud during at least ten minutes every day leading up to and during this lunation.
2) Take whatever action is within your power to generate good. Including: call people you know who might not bother to vote, knock on doors, express your viewpoint, make the extra effort to focus on forgiveness, progress in your highest work, use your time well, ignore the negative, refuse to generate words and feelings which generate blame, and/or whatever other activities you feel you can possibly add to know that didnt waste this lunations opportunity to make a difference.
Visualize Kerrys Victory
We are not to judge who is and is not good as individual entities. However, there is no doubt that it is time for a major change for the better in the leadership of the US. Imagine what could happen if many, or even several of us apply our creative imagination with tools like these now:
- Below a newspaper picture of the opposition candidate, write the words (preferably on the computer so you can print, cut and paste a more realistic version), President John Kerry.
- Create a headline, "Kerrys Victory, resounding!", or something else you come up with.
- Close your eyes and imagine yourself talking with a group of friends, "The new president is changing the world for the better. What a relief we are out of Iraq...", and so on. Repeat this imagined conversation three times at each session to ensure efficacy.
Whatever method you event or choose, use it daily, along with your prayers and other initiatives for good now, while the bridge is hanging on the invisible plane, waiting to be accessed by the collective will for and imagination of good during these power days. All past, present and future forces of good multiply the fruits of our efforts and work to sustain us in them now.
