Full Moon and Eclipse Aug. 5-6 2009

Everything that rises has to descend.  If the arch of an arrow stretches it must be released. These are laws of equilibrium and duality.  This galactic cycle that is ending now is that of the new Mayan year.  The next galactic cycle is the Magician.  It is the galactic cycle that comes to activate the warriors of light. The energy that takes you toward a higher vibration to prompt you toward the light.  It is like the confusion prior to an eclipse.

All the animals become noisy and are confused. In the case of the human beings that have not done any personal work of awareness, they are going to feel the energy stonger leading to exhaustion, headaches, , discussions. This energy guides each and everyone of you to self understanding.  Therefore the importance of inner purification before the eclipse, so that each may benefit from this energy. Prepare your body, cleansing your “house” to receive the new energy.  The challenge of the galactic cycle is to balance the duality through the vision of service, knowing when to say “yes” or “no”.

The Eagle is the most important force for the warrior representing the Vision. The Vision towards Mother Earth that comes through the synchronicity of situations which She brings us and the correct use of your free will on behalf of the Light. The lunar eclipse falls on the day of Lunar Eagle.  That is the vision of the moon.

Therefore it is suggested to take a sweat lodge or some sort of cleansing ritual since the moon represents the feminine and water medicine. Chanting “OM” until the 17th of august is also highly recommended, since it awakens and atunes the third eye chakra. You can chant mornings and nights for 30 min. each, visualizing the balancing of all your chakras.  This moon is going to give us a new of what we have come to do this year.  New beginnings which will be manifested clearly from the 8th onwards through coincidences and synchronicities.

Thus I wish with all my heart that you all harmonize with Mother Earth in the sweat lodge which is an excellent idea just before the eclipse and that all can manifest in your lives on the 11th, the heart of the great central sun of our galaxy. The galactic cycle where we will All transmit the vision of awareness and attention to our loved ones. The energy this month already has increased and will continue to increase so concentrate on your attention, silence and the impeccability of your preparation for the next galactic cycle.

Listen to the silence and listen to what your spiritual master has prepared for the next galactic wave, the spiritual master. Listen to the advise of others with humility and without judgment. Give yourself a chance to imagine, for a moment, that Spirit will carry the messages needed.  Therefore this galactic wave commands others through bringing order to your own lives. Realize how you are mirroring others and through this bring forth maturity in your character, finding the rhytmic energy of each.  So that you can be aware of this consciousness, by then bringing to light this new awareness of being tactful with otheres, transcending all fears and bringing magic to the life of others.

This is the galactic cycle of the here and now.  With all this work, you will attract the most subtle and refined information if you can be , in silence, and observe and listen.

Galactic Cycle of the Dragon (7/26/90 – 8/22/09)

The galactic cycle of the Dragon asks us to return to the origins of all things.  The origin of the word, the genesis.  What originated for you to be here at this moment? Hold yourself responsible. That is the first thing,  be happy and thankful for your process and  experiences.  You have chosen this, even before coming to Planet Earth. Reincarnating in your family, as well as your experiences which your Soul chose in order to evolve.

We are fortunate to be witnessing this energetic and conscious evolution as a humanity.  The Spirit of unity asks you to begin to be nourished from the Source: the Sun.  It is time to nourish yourselves through proper speaking,  breathing, healthy food, and to give a new start to your lives, so that you can be conscious with the energy needed for the work that you have come to carry out.  Probably many of you are ending relationships and beginning new work relationships, friendships and .

Follow your instincts.  You are also working your maternal side in this galactic cycle. As a dragon cares for her eggs.  It is the energy that manifests your hidden powers, hidden in yourself, the sensibility, the unusual and the eccentric.  Those powers which are asleep. It is the essence of your consciousness.

It is the energy that comes to work your character.  So then from 26.07.09 to the 22.08.09 you are going to begin working with this energy, meaning new beginnings with new people and situations that come to help balance your character gaining a sense of maturity. This will happen as you begin to re-set your priorities, being aware of the way your are using this energy.

This is the energy that gives you the impulse though asking you not to do everything at the same time, nor immediately. Carry out your tasks with in a moderate rhythm in the here and now.  Therefore it is highly recommended to follow proper work in eating, nourishment and breathing habits. This moon benefits spiritual strength. A moon to ask for the purification of the rivers, seas and lakes and for rain, the energy that generates the in your life.  It is a month to be productive and to seek time close to the water.

Full Moon Names for 2008

Full moon names were bestowed by the Native Americans of what is now the northern and eastern United States. A few hundred years ago, those tribes kept track of the seasons by giving distinctive names to each recurring full moon. Their names were applied to the entire month in which each occurred.

There were some variations in the moon names, but in general the same ones were current throughout the Algonquin tribes from New England on west to Lake Superior. European settlers followed their own customs and created some of their own names. Since the lunar (“synodic”) month is roughly 29.5 days in length on average, the dates of the full moon shift from year to year.

Here is a listing of all the full moon names, as well as the dates and times for 2008. Unless otherwise noted, all times are for the Eastern Time Zone.

Jan. 22, 8:35 a.m. EST — Full Wolf Moon. Amid the zero cold and deep snows of midwinter, the wolf packs howled hungrily outside Indian villages. It was also known as the Old Moon or the moon after Yule. In some tribes this was the Full Snow Moon; most applied that name to the next moon.

Feb. 20, 10:30 p.m. EST — Full Snow Moon. Usually the heaviest snows fall in this month. Hunting becomes very difficult, and hence to some tribes this was the Full Hunger Moon. This is also the night of a Total Lunar Eclipse. North and South Americans will have a ringside seat for this event and will take place during convenient evening hours. Observers in western Europe and western Africa will see this eclipse from start to finish during the morning hours of February 21.

Mar. 21, 2:40 p.m. EDT — Full Worm Moon. In this month the ground softens and the earthworm casts reappear, inviting the return of the robins. The more northern tribes knew this as the Full Crow Moon, when the cawing of crows signals the end of winter, or the Full Crust Moon because the snow cover becomes crusted from thawing by day and freezing at night. The Full Sap Moon, marking the time of tapping maple trees, is another variation. This is also the Paschal Full Moon; the first full moon of the spring season. The first Sunday following the Paschal Moon is Easter Sunday, which indeed will be observed two days later on Sunday, March 23. This will, in fact, be the earliest Easter since 1913.

Apr. 20, 6:25 a.m. EDT — Full Pink Moon. The grass pink or wild ground phlox is one of the earliest widespread flowers of the spring. Other names were the Full Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon, and — among coastal tribes — the Full Fish Moon, when the shad came upstream to spawn.

May 19, 9:11 p.m. EDT — Full Flower Moon. Flowers are abundant everywhere. It was also known as the Full Corn Planting Moon or the Milk Moon. Since the moon arrives at apogee less than 12 hours later, this will also be the smallest full moon of 2008. In terms of apparent size, it will appear 12.3 percent smaller than the full moon of Dec. 12.

Jun. 18, 1:30 p.m. EDT — Full Strawberry Moon. Known to every Algonquin tribe. Europeans called it the Rose Moon.

Jul. 18, 3:59 a.m. EDT — Full Buck Moon, when the new antlers of buck deer push out from their foreheads in coatings of velvety fur. It was also often called the Full Thunder Moon, thunderstorms being now most frequent. Sometimes also called the Full Hay Moon.

Aug. 16, 5:16 p.m. EDT — Full Sturgeon Moon, when this large fish of the Great Lakes and other major bodies of water like Lake Champlain is most readily caught. A few tribes knew it as the Full Red Moon because the moon rises looking reddish through sultry haze, or the Green Corn Moon or Grain Moon. There will be a Partial Lunar Eclipse that will be visible from Europe, Africa and the western two-thirds of Asia with this full moon. At its maximum 81 percent of the moon’s diameter will become immersed in the Earth’s dark umbral shadow.

Sep. 15, 5:13 a.m. EDT — Full Harvest Moon. Traditionally, this designation goes to the full moon that occurs closest to the Autumnal (fall) Equinox. The Harvest Moon usually comes in September, but (on average) about every three or four years it will fall in early October. At the peak of the harvest, farmers can work into the night by the light of this moon. Usually the full Moon rises an average of 50 minutes later each night, but for the few nights around the Harvest Moon, the moon seems to rise at nearly the same time each night: just 25 to 30 minutes later across the U.S., and only 10 to 20 minutes later for much of Canada and Europe. Corn, pumpkins, squash, beans, and wild rice — the chief Indian staples — are now ready for gathering.

Oct. 14, 4:02 p.m. EDT — Full Hunters’ Moon. With the leaves falling and the deer fattened, it is time to hunt. Since the fields have been reaped, hunters can ride over the stubble, and can more easily see the fox, along with other animals, which have come out to glean and can be caught for a thanksgiving banquet after the harvest.

Nov. 13, 1:17 a.m. EST — Full Beaver Moon. Time to set beaver traps before the swamps freeze to ensure a supply of warm winter furs. Another interpretation suggests that the name Beaver Full Moon come from the fact that the beavers are now active in their preparation for winter. Also called the Frosty Moon.

Dec. 12, 11:37 a.m. EST — Full Cold Moon; among some tribes, the Full Long Nights Moon. In this month the winter cold fastens its grip, and the nights are at their longest and darkest. Also sometimes called the Moon before Yule. The term Long Night Moon is a doubly appropriate name because the midwinter night is indeed long and the moon is above the horizon a long time. The midwinter full moon takes a high trajectory across the sky because it is opposite to the low Sun. The moon will also be at perigee later this day, at 5:00 p.m. EST, at a distance of 221,560 mi. (356,566 km.) from Earth. Very high ocean tides can be expected from the coincidence of perigee with full moon.
