“We are here to protect the earth and the water.
This is why we are still alive. To do this very thing we are doing.
To help humanity answer its most pressing question:
How do we live with the earth again, not against it?”
~LaDonna Brave Bull Allard at Standing Rock
The waves] move across a faint horizon, the rush of love and the surge of grief, the respite of peace and then fear again, the heart that beats and then lies still, the rise and fall and rise and fall of all of it, the incoming and the outgoing, the infinite procession of life. And the ocean wraps the earth, a reminder. The mysteries come forward in waves.
“I felt like lying down by the side of the trail and remembering it all. The woods do that to you, they always look familiar, long lost, like the face of a long-dead relative, like an old dream, like a piece of forgotten song drifting across the water, most of all like golden eternities of past childhood or past manhood and all the living and the dying and the heartbreak that went on a million years ago and the clouds as they pass overhead seem to testify (by their own lonesome familiarity) to this feeling.”

An earthy full Moon in Virgo, the sign of the priestess is happening now. In ancient times, Virgo priestesses served the Earth, by leading rituals and ceremonies to honor the seasons and cycles of life on Earth.
This Virgo Moon helps bring the expansive energy of a dreamy Pisces Sun back down to Earth. Yes, we must step outside ordinary reality and dream big in order to transform our world. But the devil is in the details. Now it is time to begin turning our dreams into grounded action. Time to dot the i’s and cross the t’s on our big dreamy plans for the future. Meditate and call on the energies of this Virgo moon to guide you and help you.
An annular solar eclipse happens Sunday Feb. 26 as the moon begins anew in watery Pisces. Radical change and chaos is happening all around us — and no place is that more apparent than in the political arena. Fire is stirring up our inner emotional waters much like molten lava roiling up the sea. Now is the time to slow down and breathe!
Change is coming. Pisces, the powerful dreamer, can help us now. Dream often and dream big. Dream of how you want the world to be. Hold your dream for a beautiful new world close and love it into being.
Full Moon in earthy Capricorn, builder and keeper of sacred structure.
Dream, journey or meditate with the ancient Circle of Grandmothers tonight.
Ask these wise women for guidance and support.
Ask which limits and rules serve you, and which to cut away.
Ask for help creating the life you desire.
It is time to build something beautiful in your world.
