I have just returned from two weeks in Egypt. It was an amazing journey, and I hope to share more of those experiences in future messages. It is an exceptional time to be in Egypt. We experienced the magically potent Full Moon eclipse at the Giza Pyramids and Saqqara. All of the sacred sites, including the Great Pyramid, are quiet, serene and empty of tourists. Imagine being the only people in Karnak Temple on a Friday afternoon! One can actually sit and meditate and hear the temples “speak”. Again and again, we were ushered into places formerly closed to tourists and had some amazing healing experiences. The Egyptian people are resilient, hopeful for the future of their country, and as wonderfully warm –hearted as ever. I visited some dear friends, including Dr. Zahi Hawass, and met many new ones along the way. It may be that I am truly blessed in Egypt, but I saw no signs of violence or threatening behavior, just the extreme stress of people who have had their livelihoods taken away. We are all praying for Egypt. It is always hard for me to leave Egypt, and I am already looking forward to going back in 2014. I will be posting more about this trip on my website and Facebook page; also the new website for the Egyptian Blue Lotus Foundation is coming soon. Happy Thanksgiving!!…Blessings, Mary
On November 3, the final total New Moon Solar eclipse of the year occurs at 11 degrees Scorpio. There is something very final about a solar eclipse; it heralds karmic endings, as well as new beginnings. Solar eclipses occur close to the same zodiacal every 19 years. What was happening in your life November 3, 1994? Themes from that time may re-emerge to be finally resolved and/or raised to a new level. As challenging as some endings may be, there is an element of excitement about embracing the new and the unknown. There is a “wild card” element at work. There is much creativity and the potential for massive “breakthroughs” in consciousness as this eclipse is not only conjunct a Black Hole, but it is also conjunct Saturn, the Karmic Teacher of the zodiac. Although a New Moon eclipse generally begins a new cycle, there is definitely a finality; a closure on things with Saturn’s presence at 13 degrees of Scorpio. Saturn may offer some stability in the wake of the destabilization cycle which began with the prior Oct 18th lunar eclipse. New events and circumstances may be constellating around emotional issues that came up during the Full Moon. In Scorpio, “secrets” will continue to spill like toxic waste. We will hear much more about covert surveillance, spying, and betrayal.
Total Solar Eclipses are cosmic “event planners” for better or worse. This eclipse directly impacts North America and Mexico, as well as E. Africa, Libya and Eastern Europe. Scorpio rules big money, power, land-grabbing and the underworld (as in Hades). Economic crises will continue to fuel political agendas worldwide. We will see more turf wars over mineral rights, mining and oil production. The rise and fall of world leaders remains a critical issue. Egypt, will once again, bring a deposed leader to trial November 4th, as the issues of personal freedom vs. political repression are weighed on the karmic scales of Maat. The light of truth has the potential to replace Pluto’s shadow world of domination and power, if individuals have the courage to act out of love, not fear.
In your personal world, clean up any toxic emotional debris. Anything that we repress or deny right now has tremendous power to sabotage our happiness. Scorpio has a way of getting us to look at our deepest fears. Only by descending into the underworld can the Hero find his true essence and power. Healing occurs when we bring light to the dark. The serpentine energy of Scorpio resides in the coiled kundalini energy of the spine (sexuality and healing) and is represented by the Caduceus (staff) held by the god Thoth/Asclepius/Mercury. This is an excellent time for exploring depth psychology, dream work, and shamanic techniques for bringing unconscious patterns to light. Many will be accessing past life information, especially those trained as healers will begin to discover many latent talents and abilities.
As more and more souls choose to exit the planet and shed the physical body, humans will finally come to realize that physical death is not the end of consciousness. This will empower the human race to untold leaps, as the fear of death is transmuted.
During this eclipse period, Venus is at 28 degrees Sagittarius conjunct the Galactic Center. Humanity will be receiving massive transmissions from the Great Central Sun and Galactic Beings who are assisting us in our shift from Head to Heart. The dark masculine energy of war and destruction is being transformed by the Feminine Avataric energy of love and compassion. This energy has been long awaited on planet Earth for the past 13,000 years. If you have been looking at the night sky over the past few evenings, you have probably been feeling these downloads or transmissions. The may be felt as angelic presences, channeling or lucid dreams. Ask for your guides, angels, Higher Self to assist you in accessing this beam of Love.
On November 1, the exact square of Pluto to Uranus gives a sense of urgency to making major changes. Evolution and revolution are the operative words.
On November 10 Mercury at 2 degrees Scorpio ends its final retrograde of the year.
In ancient Egypt, the god Thoth was the god of wisdom, medicine, writing and all sacred knowledge. The Greeks knew him as Hermes and the Romans. Mercury. In Egypt, he was depicted as a tall man with the head of an ibis bird and holding a long reed pen (stylus) and scribe’s palette. He was considered a magician, and the author of the “Emerald Tablets” considered t hold the keys to all creation. During this New Moon, you may want to call on Thoth as a Guide to help you access your inner wisdom and creativity.
Light a white or yellow candle, if you have one. If you have a particular crystal(s) for meditation, use it. Find a comfortable position where your body feels at ease.
Close your eyes and begin to breathe deeply.
Concentrate on a golden ball of energy floating above you, and encircling you from the soles of your feet to the top of your head. Continue breathing.
Feel the golden spiral of energy spinning inside your heart chakra and filling your body from the inside out with a warm glow. As your body begins to feel lighter, you see the form of Thoth standing before you. You have now entered his Crystal Temple, which contains the Hall of Records.
In his hand he holds a pure white scroll with your name written in golden letters. He tells you this is your time of “graduation”. You have passed some extremely difficult tests in the past 6 months, and now you are ready to start a new cycle.
Take some time to meditate on what it is that you really wish to manifest in the coming weeks. Try to be as specific as possible.
Thoth reminds you that your words and thoughts are extremely powerful. Thoth now places the scroll into your hands. There may be a symbol; word or sound that comes to you when you feel it. This is part of your “soul signature”, and you are now ready to recognize it.
Your heart expands with light at his words, and your mind feels crystal clear.
You are energized and excited as you come back to your full consciousness and realize what an extraordinary adventure awaits you!
