Alchemy is identified as the art of turning base metal into gold. The transformation of matter. While physical alchemy is concerned with altering and transforming matter, spiritual alchemy is concerned with freeing your spiritual self which is trapped within you by the lower vibrational energies of fears, personal beliefs, self-doubts.
There are certain times a year when we have an opportunity to celebrate the earth mother and receive her blessings. Gateways open at these times giving us moments when our connection to the unseen world allows us to view the rhythm and timing of the goddess in her form as mother nature. When we celebrate the holy days of nature that belong to everyone we can actually seed the earth with visions of a kinder, gentler world, we can infuse the dragon lines with love and in return receive guidance, clarity and healing. Everytime we do ritual we are working with alchemy to transform our lives and consciousness on a global scale.
As the world seems to be experiencing confusion, separation, fear, and uncertainty, we need to remember we are given a choice daily. We choose if we want to experience the day in joy or misery? Do we choose to be faithful or fearful? What do we want to focus on? We need to remember that human beings are in different levels of understanding and will simply choose the journey they desire. It is not our responsibility to ensure the evolution of another soul. You are responsible for you and how you choose to move forward. On July 26th, following the Mayan Day Out of Time your reality changed and the Lion’s Gate Portal began to open making August a profound month of alchemical transformation.
August 1st, 2021 – Lammas The Festival of Bread and the Harvest
Following the traditions of my lineage the Tuatha de Dannan, Lammas, sometimes called Lughnasadh, is a time to celebrate the first harvest of the year. The plants of spring wither and drop their seeds to ensure future crops. Grains are ready to be harvested and the fruits are ripe for picking. We give thanks for the food on our tables. As autumn begins, the Celtic Sun God symbolically loses his strength as the Sun rises farther in the South each day and the nights grow longer. This is a time to reflect with gratitude on all that we have in our life. Gratitude and celebration bring more abundance and feelings of joy. We can all use a little more joy these days. I have posted a ritual of gratitude and celebration to invoke these beautiful energies of joy and a ritual to work with the enchanted ones. CLICK HERE
August 2, 2021 Imbolc in the Southern Hemisphere
As the warming rays of the sun thaw the frozen earth, the time arrives for each of us to release old wounds in order to create fertile soil for new ideas and possibilities. By reclaiming our connection to the divine, we accept our role in our own destinies, reaffirming our belief that the power of change rests in each and every one of us. Imbolc is a great time to feel your own power bubbling forth, especially with the help and assistance of the strong and forceful fire goddess Brigid. Imbolc is a time of renewal and rebirth as the Goddess springs forth from deep within the earth where she has rested since Samhain. For those who are members of our online subscription series I have posted rituals of renewal and empowerment to celebrate this special time. CLICK HERE
August 8th – Lion’s Gate Portal Opening and New Moon
Every year on the 8th day of the 8th month of the year there is a cosmic alignment called “the Lions Gateway”. The Lions Gate is a time of increased cosmic energy flowing between the physical and spiritual realms. The Lions Gate has ties to ancient Egypt and for thousands of years has been observed and honored as a time acknowledged when a great energetic portal opening occurs. This gateway is marked by an alignment between the Earth and the star Sirius. As Sirius rises in the sky, Orion’s Belt directly aligns with the Pyramid of Giza. The portal began to open on July 26th immediately following the Mayan Day Out of time on July 25th. The portal fully opens on the 8th. When the portal is fully opened a spiritual alignment happens, and an intense surge of light awakens our DNA, activates the human energy field, and transmits high vibrational frequencies and codes of awakening occurs. Light codes of ascension, mastery, and evolution pour towards Earth, aligning yet another level of activation and opportunity for progression on the ascension path. With the portal opening that occurred last December 21st at the time of the Grand Conjunction and the alignment of Jupiter and Saturn in 0 degrees Aquarius, this particular Lion’s Gate portal opening will allow a huge surge of light to activate the five fifth dimensional chakras that are assisting in raising collective consciousness. For those who are interested I continue to offer a comprehensive 12 chakra reading including the five fifth dimensional chakras. For more information CLICK HERE. On this night, find stillness to go deeper within your soul story. Everything is up for review now as we question if our career, relationships and desires are truly in alignment with love and our soul growth. Are we living the best of us? Don’t be surprised if some key aspect of your life, or everything all at once seems to be in a state of flux. We are changing as our world changes. We are becoming fifth dimensional beings once again. The Lion’s Gate portal opening is always a powerful time but even more so in 2021, as we can use this portal time to create alchemy under the influence of the New Moon in Leo that falls at the same time. A new moon in Leo asks us to step into our spiritual mastery. The number 8, represents the symbol of infinity symbolizing, “as above, so below”. I have posted a ritual and a guided audio meditation to support the energy influx as you align to receive the special blessings our humanity it being gifted. CLICK HERE. The energy will continue to flow until the portal closes on the 13th. I encourage you to work with the guided meditation nightly until the portal closes.
August 19th – Uranus goes Retrograde
This is the planet of sudden shifts, revolution, rebellion, and individuality. Uranus retrograde is about evoking change from within. Embrace your uniqueness and your authenticity. This represents the full expression of the saying. “If you want to see change…you must be the change”. Uranus in the retrograde dance, creates an opportunity to understand on a deep level that whatever we put our focus on we will create more. If we focus on fear, division,and separation, we will become trapped in that 3D vortex.
If we focus on beauty, inner peace, harmony and joy we will become expressions of it. Just outside that vortex is the reality we all desire. Take time to be in nature.
In the early morning hours if we take the opportunity to experience a sunrise we can feel the earth mother coming to life and we are able to listen to our own heart where we find the courage to step into our magnificence.
All of our answers are found in nature
August 22nd/23rd Full Moon in Aquarius
A Full Moon in Aquarius represents Great Awakenings which will bring forth monumental change that can benefit All of Humanity and raise Consciousness to higher levels. Use the energy of the moon to align with your higher self and your highest path. This is a full moon to stand out and let your light shine. An Aquarius Full Moon creates an opportunity to reflect on how you’ve made a difference in the world. Whatever work you’ve done to try to further equality, fairness, justice respect for the environment, envisioning a kinder, gentler world, however small, has been gratefully received by the cosmos. One person alone cannot change the world, but the Aquarian Full Moon is a valuable reminder that every single person can, and does, have a part to play in collective change. The Aquarius Full Moon brings an energy which encourages radical change in our own lives. As we continue to navigate through this year of Change, Movement and Growth this moon is dedicated to the Dragonfly. I have posted a ritual of magick to harness the Aquarian energy CLICK HERE and a powerful guided meditation. CLICK HERE.
For those who are ready to make change and step into their full potential by deconstructing the old belief systems and creating a new expression of self, I continue to offer the Dragonfly Emergence One on One Program. CLICK HERE
