Preparing for 2020

by Cayelin Castell

Are you Ready for a NEW World, a NEW way of life as we prepare for 2020?

On April 22, 2018 we will experience another exact Still Point of Pluto when Pluto changes to retrograde motion. Pluto Stations direct at its second still point of the year on September 30, 2018. Any planetary Still Point is a place of suspension or pause where the energies remains suspended within minutes of its station point for a few weeks before and after the station point.

This Still Point of any planetary station creates a possible shift in awareness. This extended window of Pluto’s Still Point can be thought of as a time when the Phoenix is preparing to rise from the ashes of what has been into what is birthing anew. The Phoenix chooses to die to its old form purposefully diving into the fire of transformational change. Read More

Welcome Ceremonialist and Shamanic Practitioners

Our mission in this area is to support indigenous and earth-based traditions around the world. Invariably, most of these groups still emphasize ceremony and a living organic relationship with the As Above, So Below realities but they may no longer have direct knowledge or relationship with the night sky.

Ceremonialist benefit from the knowledge and experience of the night sky, synodic planetary cycles, and the Galactic Alignment all designed to further support these groups at this major Turning of the Ages. This includes working with stone circles, petroglyph sites, and taking journeys to sacred sites, cosmograms and heirophanies in the US and around the world.

Examples include the 13 Indigenous Grandmothers, Central and South American Shamanic and Medicine Traditions, Celtic Shamanism, Ceremonial Magic, Priestess and Priest Circles, and Vision Quest Traditions.

June Solstice Sun on the Galactic Cross

2010 August lake house 005by Cayelin K Castell

An ancient “School of Prophets” understood much about the cosmos and used natural time-cycles to mark out the course of history. For them the cosmos seemed somehow much closer and more relevant than it does today.

Among other things they believed that there were specific doorways or gates leading in and out of “heaven”. These portals were believed to be located at the points where the ecliptic (the pathway followed by the Sun in its annual progression along the zodiac) crosses over the Milky Way.

Significantly the Sun now sits at one of these gateways at the solstices. By a process of analogy: “As Above, So Below”, this indicates that it is now that these “stargates” are opening. Adrian Gilbert
