“We are Protectors not Protesters. Our camp is a prayer, for our children, our elders and ancestors, and for the creatures, and the land and habitat they depend on, who cannot speak for themselves.” –@CampoftheSacredStone
“ There is a Higher Court than the court of justice, and that is the court of conscience. It supersedes all other courts.” Mahatma Gandhi
The Month begins with a New Moon/ Solar Eclipse on September 1st, in Virgo, the sign of environmental purity and the sacredness of the Earth. A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun, blocking the Sun’s light and casting a shadow on the earth. It is always a time when the unconscious in the form of our personal and collective shadow arises in order to be healed and integrated. This is a time when the powerful feminine forces of memory and feeling arise in our collective consciousness.
Added to this potent mix is Mercury’s recent retrograde also in Virgo, bringing cosmic emphasis to the need to return to original wounds and to a sacred, reverent and environmentally sustainable relationship with the earth. This month we return to the Goddess and she returns to us. We are called back to a sacred, protective and nurturing relationship with our sustaining Mother planet. This awareness is best embodied by The First Nations, who at this writing are uniting to oppose the Dakota Access Pipeline which cuts through their sacred lands.
We are at a healing crisis this New Moon, and can expect to have issues surface that require our intelligent, reverent and analytical attention. This will be happening personally and collectively.
Virgo is a sign of analytical brilliance. She is the diagnostic intelligence of the zodiac and presides over the healing properties of the botanical kingdom as well as all forms of specialization in the healing arts or in any subject. This month bring all your intelligence and discernment to bear on deeply emotional issues that may arise at this time. Much of what arises will be historical bringing us back to early trauma in our personal, ancestral, national and global lives. Great healing can be effected if we stand our sacred ground, reel in our projections and dare to revisit early and core wounds.
Virgo also represents the Sacred Earth Mother in her guise as healer through a return to cleanliness, wholeness and the healing properties of the botanical kingdom. This retrograde instructs us to make the course corrections that are crucial at this time to clean up our lives, homes, bodies and businesses as well as our sustaining planet. With Venus in Libra, the sign of justice and relationships, joined by Mighty Jupiter on September 9th, we are also in a major reflection regarding partnerships and relationships. This is a month of healing and realignment as we pull back from some relationships and commit to others.
Collectively we are asked to look at social justice issues that require major adjustments. At this writing the developing events at Standing Rock in North Dakota have us in a national refection of our very first steps on this continent. As the First Nations unite in their opposition to an oil pipeline that violates our treaties with them and endangers the water supply and largest aquifers of the Dakotas, a historic reenactment of our shameful history is occurring before us. The obscene spectacle of police and The National Guard lining up to protect a corporate pipe line and Oil Company profits, as they arrest the true stewards of this land, reveals the indefensible injustice of our corporate society and our inception as a nation. At this writing President Obama has ordered a halt to this pipeline, as this unprecedented unification of the First Nations worldwide in opposition to it continues to grow and rightly garners international outrage.
The other social Justice movement that continues to gain traction is occurring within the NFL where San Francisco 49’s quarterback Colin Kaepernick has begun a protest movement by refusing to stand during the national anthem at the beginning of the football games. His action has met with fierce opposition as well as tremendous support as he calmly brings attention to the horrific epidemic of extrajudicial killings of unarmed Black citizens by police, and other issues of grave national concern like the treatment of our veterans.
Both of these social movements began to crest as mighty Jupiter entered Libra the sign of Justice on September 9th. This entry of Jupiter, the planet of Higher Justice, to the sign of the Scales of Justice during Mercury’s retrograde, indicates that this year, through October of 2017 will present us with a unique opportunity to go back and begin to heal and address core and historic wounds and injustices. This could be the year when the United States finally faces honestly the twin sins of our inception: The attempted genocide of the First Nations and American Slavery and Jim Crow, both of which are resurfacing at this time in our consciousness as a result of these protest movements and the events that inspired them.
As Jupiter enters Libra, we are reminded that all external systems of law and justice are derived from our deep internal sense of justice, as native to humanity as our sense of love or beauty. As Gandhi reminds us, our conscience is in a real sense the highest judge that we must each consult with, and ultimately obey, regardless of the law of the land.
This month we are reflecting on matters of social and personal justice that require major adjustments, so that one standard of justice applies fairly to All people, nations and races.
This month it is as though we are time travelers, going back in time to heal our personal and national wounds so that we may be free of all that binds our true expression and so that we may finally be a nation and world with Liberty and Justice for All!
Blessings of Healing and Liberty to All…
