A Moon to Celebrate

Skywatcher’s Corner for October 2020 highlighting the Full Moon in Aries

MOON CAKE

from J Awen Labow

It’s fall here in the Northern hemisphere with a big, bright Full Moon making its light available to help extend the hours available for harvest. This may not be the way that we think of the Full Moon today, but most of our ancestors would have found this particular Full Moon to be most useful, indeed. In fact, this Full Moon marks a very important holiday all across Asia known as Mid-Autumn Festival or Full Moon Festival.

Unlearning Judgment Thanks to Shamanic Astrology

by Sheridan Semple

I’ll admit it, I’ve been a judger. I’m not proud of it, but thankfully Shamanic Astrology is challenging me to do better… much better. Even as I began to write, I was embroiled in judgment and felt so hypocritical writing this article. Then, I realized this is exactly what I need to write about because it reminds me that Shamanic Astrology is teaching me to stop judging other people. What a gift!

A Silver Gateway on a High Hand

by Mary Kern, President of SAMS

The June Solstice, the longest day of light in the Northern Hemisphere and the shortest day of light in the Southern Hemisphere is a portal beyond normal time.

The term “Solstice” literally means “Sun Stands Still” which it what it does for 3 consecutive days, creating a “still point”— a portal for information and new creation coming in from our life-giving Sun.

In ancient times this was a sacred time for ceremony to honor this Solar gateway, the arrival of new archetypal energy, set new intensions, gain new awareness and release what is no longer useful to be composted.

Keeping Sane with Shamanic Astrology’s 3 Worlds

by Sheridan Semple

If you’ve been around the Shamanic Astrology block a few times, you’ve probably heard about the shamanic concept of the 3 Worlds from Daniel and Cayelin. Thinking about the 3 Worlds and trying to stay grounded in all three has really helped me navigate the pandemic.

I liken it to a ferris wheel. If I keep riding the wheel through all three worlds, I do fine. If I stop, or worse get off, at any one world, that’s where I start to get weird. My motto is don’t let my ferris wheel stop. Don’t get stuck in any one world for too long.

If the 3 Worlds is new idea to you, here’s a quick explanation. Our realities constantly exist in three different worlds: celestial, middle and under. We may or may not be aware of the worlds, but our experiences often live in one or more of them. In Shamanic Astrology terms we associate Uranus and Neptune with the celestial (or upper) world, Saturn and Jupiter with the middle world, and Pluto and Chiron with the underworld.
