Mercury began its retrograde process on August 20th affecting relationships, challenging us to make further changes. Many of you have recently sent me emails describing an on going theme that has been underway for several weeks. I decided to add a little more light to the current pulse of energy that is influencing each of us at this time. It is one further push to prepare us individually to move forward collectively. I am in the process of writing the 2011 Moon Cycle and Ritual Book which will be available in November. All indications are that 2011 will be a monumental year. Although we stand poised for 2012 and almost everyday I am asked questions regarding the truth of 2012, I truly believe it is the action we take in 2011 that will prepare us for the energy shift that will not fully be felt until 2013.
The Mayan Calendar speaks about 2012, but I believe we need to put our energy into completing this year and look at how we can best utilize the assistance we are now receiving from these constant Planetary influences. As Mercury moves through its retrograde cycle for the next three weeks we will feel also the impact of Uranus now moving retrograde through Pisces. Uranus is known in astrology as the planet of revolution. It serves to shake up the status quo and creates new social archetypes and paradigms. Pisces, being a water sign, would suggest that anything having to do with water will be affected during this period. It is the most emotional of the signs so will certainly stir up a mixture of emotion in all of us. This can really serve us well if we use the time correctly to review, regenerate, recharge, reflect and reinvent ourselves so that we can move forward with a sense of confidence and new beginnings when Mercury goes direct on September 13th.
Water expresses itself in many forms such as seas, oceans, rivers, lakes, dams, storms, hurricanes, snow, rain, rain clouds, steam, fog, healing water,polluted water, and so much more. We are already seeing how much focus is on water right now. Not only the intense flooding taking place all over the world but the realization of how precious this commodity is. Water continues to create dramatic change in the earth’s landscape and becomes increasingly more precious and in demand. The Ancient Wisdom teaches us that the Earth is a planet that must continue to undergo incredible challenges in order to bring about universal awakening. We must awaken to the need to protect our natural resources and with Uranus retrograding through Pisces until March 2011 this will become a greater focus. Continue to pray for the healing of water as it holds an intelligence critical for mankind at this time. Expect the unexpected in yourself, in others and in the events unfolding around you, as well as around the world. Pisces governs all aspects of the subconscious. What has been hidden will be exposed. What we have denied we will be shown. Dreams will be greatly enhanced during this time as we continue to find our personal truth and dispel the illusions we have accepted as our truth.
I have recently had the amazing opportunity to spend time with a very special soul. A water shaman who has passed on his knowledge regarding the intelligence held within water and what we can learn for our own personal journey. Not just as an essential element for our health and well being, but essential to remembering the intelligence stored within water that can assist our life journey, our dreams and our unconscious creative ability. It is our life waters that move with the tides and cycles of the moon. They cause us to respond and feel the affect of the planetary influences. Until we learn that we must become One Family we will feel these influences greatly. We must take a realistic approach that this is not going to happen overnight or on an appointed date in 2012. It is up to us to continue to work on reconnecting to our divinity and remembering who we are and what we came here to do that will continue to move us forward. No one is going to do this for us. It is not going to be easy but we can do this. Continue to join circles of light and meet with those of like mind for assistance and support. We all need each other.
I will be sharing and creating experiences for those who choose to walk a shamanic path but this will take commitment and focus. To walk a shamanic path is a way of life not just a weekend or week long seminar. It is a way of life that helps one find the magick and beauty in each day regardless of the chaos moving all around us during these times of great transition and change. It is a pathway that leads to a greater sense of purpose and the realization of ones dreams. It is a pathway of walking the earth in balance and harmony. It is the pathway of the ancestors.
For those who are truly ready to make change in their life, I will be facilitating a series of retreats and workshops in different areas around the world beginning with Connecticut in September to celebrate the Autumn Equinox and Full Moon.
Water also influences joy and play. Part of a Shamanic Path is one of celebrating life and feeling the childlike energy that nature can support. For those of you who would like to experience nature at its best, as our greatest teacher, I will be creating a weekend experience in the magnificent sanctuary known as Mount Shasta for the Full Moon in October. If you would like more information please let me know. I will also be sharing a powerful experience in beautiful Switzerland in November.
I am returning to the states mid September and will be conducting a workshop on working with the intelligence of nature, a deep personal journey of self discovery to return the magick into ones life. This date will be posted later please check back under Upcoming Events.
Wishing you magick as our journey continues, inner peace during these times of reflection, clarity and wisdom.
Love and rainbows, Robbyne
