Dear Friends, on October 13th we are collectively experiencing the impact of a powerful Full Moon which shows itself positioned in 20 degrees and 13 minutes of the fiery star sign of Aries. In the human collective that impact will ignite a new passion for the transformation of outdated behavior pattern which also can make the energy field rather unstable these days.Its a good moment in time to ask ourselves where our contribution is needed and in which parts of life its time for us to make a step back.
The powerful Aries Full Moon energies can take us to the
next level of our personal and collective spiritual growth right now. If we can
direct the intense fire that it ignites in many human souls to create an even profounder
connection with our higher heart and the guidance that comes from sensing
the oneness of humanity
Every man without passions has within him no principle of action, nor motive to act. Claude A. Helvetius
May the sun ignite a thousand fires in your heart to give you the strength for the day ahead. Anthony T. Hincks
Curiosity is a strong fire, and once ignited, it is not easily put out. Susan Dennard
In every change, ignite the new levels of creativity from the golden state of mind shake up long-standing beliefs with conviction and allow the sparks to fly. Amit Ray
One of the themes we might feel especially strong during the impact of the Aries Full Moon is the way we are handling our time on earth. The closer we are to the awareness that our physical body and the time we can spend with it is limited in this world, and that the spirit is what is going on while the human life is temporary, the clearer we will feel these days that the management of time is one of the most important possessions truly ours on this material plane.
Time is free, but it’s priceless. You can’t own it. but you can use it. You can’t keep it, but you can spend it. Once you’ve lost it you can never get it back. Harvey MacKay
Inelegantly, and without my consent, time passed. Miranda July
A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life. Charles Darwin
Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin. Mother Theresa
All in all the energy field of the Aries Full Moon is inviting us to connect with our inner fire and to finding our strength for self empowerment. Its a good time to ask ourselves where we are living our personal power in a balanced way, where we are giving our power away and where we need to direct powers imposed on us in brand new ways. What ever it is you have to work on, trust that there is enough passion in the air to take you there!
We all make mistakes, have struggles, and even regret things in our past. But you are not your mistakes, you are not your struggles, and you are here NOW with the power to shape your day and your future. Steve Maraboli
You can, you should, and if you’re brave enough to start, you will. Stephen King
When you’re following your inner voice, doors tend to eventually open for you, even if they mostly slam at first. Kelly Cutrone
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? Marianne Williamson
Dear Ones, I hope that the powerful Aries Full Moon energies are serving you well and that your inner fire is burning brightly for the transformation of the outdated systems we have on this beautiful planet right now. Trust your path and keep shining! Love and Full Moon Blessings! Edith

Dear Friends, in these exciting and ever changing time of our our collective transformation into manifesting the Golden Age of Aquarius, we hear a lot about the incoming high energies of cosmic light, of the Venus retrograde phase and the coming Super Moon. But it is not only the heavenly forces, that are once again opening their doors for us. The divine law states: “As above – so below”. What that means is, when ever the gateways of heaven open to bless us with supportive energy frequencies, so does Planet Earth. Last week, the physical ground we are standing on has, for the fist time in human existence, reached the stable vibration of a 5th dimensional living being. Without the body there is no divinity in action, no imprint of the divine in this world, no space for expression of an individual divine soul path. So celebrate your physical vessel, celebrate the nature of being a human being (the awakening of the divine feminine is needed for both, men and women!!), celebrate the beauty of our planet and let it heal you back home to where it all began!! Love and Blessings! Namaste! Edith
We live during a time of awakening consciousness, a time in which we are exploring ways to bring the Sacred Feminine to a more central focus in our lives, in order to stop the wars, bring compassion to all, and nurture our Earth Mother who gives us everything we need.
In a time of great change such as we live in today, it is critical, perhaps even a life-or-death matter, to explore the idea of women connecting with their deepest inner knowing and powerful creative energy to find their passion and transform the world.
Women in Indigenous Cultures
In many indigenous cultures around the world, from the Australian Aboriginal peoples to the indigenous peoples of North and South America, woman are considered sacred because they maintain a close connection to nature; to birth, life, and death; to medicinal plants; and to spiritual knowledge.
In these ancient cultures, the Sacred Feminine is encouraged to shine forth alongside the Sacred Masculine. Both the feminine and the masculine aspects of humanity bring important wisdom and abilities to the community as a whole. The two types of energies combine within each individual to create a life-affirming balance.
Too often in modern society, the masculine qualities are valued over the feminine, creating an imbalance driven by insecurities and deep fear. When we open up to the Sacred Feminine in our lives, we restore that balance, we find confidence and integrity, and we develop the courage to move past our fears.
In The Sacred Hoop: Recovering the Feminine in American Indian Traditions, Paula Gunn Allen writes:
“Traditional tribal lifestyles are more often gynocratic than not, and they are never patriarchal … In tribal gynocratic systems a multitude of personality and character types can function positively within the social order because the systems are focused on social responsibility rather than privilege. They feature even distribution of goods among all members of the society on the grounds that First Mother enjoined cooperation and sharing on all her children. The welfare of the young is paramount, the complementary nature of all life forms is stressed, and the centrality of powerful women to social well-being is unquestioned.”
It is only natural then, that at this important time of re-evaluating humans’ impact on the planet over the past 500 years or so, that we should return to a consideration of allowing women to step forward with their nurturing, strong-willed, and wild natures ready to make great social change. It also makes sense that we would look to the Sacred Feminine found in so many indigenous cultures, whose wisdom can help us discover new ways to respect the Earth and to honor its abundance.
A Wild Nature Buried Within
When a woman, or any person for that matter, is in touch with their deepest inner knowing, when they can hear their “soul-voice,” they feel a deep connection with the universe. They are able to follow their intuition without doubting and second-guessing themselves.
Too often in modern culture, our intuition is drowned out by to-do lists and schedules, money problems, and worries about what other people will think about us. The list of distractions goes on and on. The Wild Woman is able to let go of all of these small concerns in order to nourish what is most important for her soul: The pull of her heart toward what she really loves and what she is meant to do in the world.
Every person, in order to be whole and complete, needs to offer their truest self to the world. We all have something very special and unique to share. We need every single person on the Earth to feel free to share their gift, in order to accomplish the huge task of creating the just, sustainable world that we want to see.
We must each start within. We can begin by discovering and releasing what is wild within each of us, allowing it to open and blossom in our lives. Once we find the voice inside, the same voice that guided our indigenous ancestors to medicinal wisdom and spiritual knowledge, then we are in touch with the Sacred Feminine, the connection to birth, life, and death that guides each of us. When we allow this voice to become stronger, when we truly listen to it and acknowledge it, we will understand what our gift is and how to share it in the world.
In her book Women Who Run With the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype,Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Ph.D. writes of the feminine nature:
“It’s not by accident that the pristine wilderness of our planet disappears as the understanding of our own inner wild nature fades. It is not so difficult to comprehend why old forests and old women are viewed as not very important resources. It is not such a mystery.”
What Happens When Women Open to their Deepest Wild Nature?
Estes says: “When women reassert their relationship with the wildish nature, they are gifted with a permanent and internal watcher, a knower, a visionary, an oracle, an inspiratrice, an intuitive, a maker, a creator, an inventor, and a listener who guide, suggest, and urge vibrant life in the inner and outer worlds. When women are close to this nature, the fact of that relationship glows through them. This wild teacher, wild mother, wild mentor supports their inner and outer lives, no matter what.
“So the word wild here is not used in its modern sense, meaning out of control, but in its original sense, which means to live a natural life.
“With [our true nature] as ally, as leader, model, teacher, we see, not through two eyes, but through the eyes of intuition which is many-eyed. When we assert intuition, we are therefore like the starry night: we gaze at the world through a thousand eyes.
“The wild woman carries the bundles for healing; she carries everything a woman needs to be and to know … As in all art, she resides in the guts, not in the head … She whispers from night dreams, she leaves behind on the terrain of a woman’s soul a coarse hair and muddy footprints … She is the voice which says, ‘This way, this way.” … She is from the future and from the beginning of time.”
Who Is the Wild Woman Today?
The Wild Woman is one who is not afraid to reject society’s rules in order to make great change which she knows is important and necessary. Her intuition is clear and strong, and she uses it to guide her actions and strengthen her resolve. She is fiercely protective of her own children and grandchildren, her partner, her community, all sentient beings, and Mother Earth.
“No matter by which culture a woman is influenced, she understands the words wild and woman, intuitively. When women hear those words, an old, old memory is stirred and brought back to life … When we pick up her trail, it is typical of women to ride hard to catch up, to clear off the desk, clear off the relationship, clear out one’s mind, turn to a new page, insist on a break, break the rules, stop the world, for we are not going on without her any longer.”
In other words, Wild Women have rediscovered a connection with their heart and their deepest instincts, which may have been lost for years or decades. They will passionately reinvent their own lives and their world when they discover their wildish nature.
Many of the world’s great social change leaders, progressive thinkers, and tireless activists are Wild Women. Think of Julia Butterfly Hill,Rosa Parks,Margaret Fuller,Mother Theresa, and Waangari Maathai. These woman stepped outside of the normal boundaries of the society of their time, defying all odds and proceeding with what they believed in no matter what obstacles they faced.
As social movements rise during this time of expanding human consciousness, who will be the next Wild Women who will change history? Many of the newest generation of Wild Women are already beginning to ignite the world with new perspectives and an unyielding drive toward transformation. Are you one of them?
