Friday the 13th

 

Friday the 13th Facts 

Here are a few fun facts of Friday the 13th to get you in the mood that it’s a good day:

o   The US Seal has 13 stars, bars, feathers in the eagle’s tail, 13 bars in one claw, 13 olive branches in the other.

o   The Chinese, Pagans and others in ancient times marked time by the lunar cycle and calendar, thus 13 was considered a very lucky number.

o   Egyptian philosophy believes life is a mission for the eternal afterlife. This journey walks through 13 levels, the first 12 in this life, at death the 13th level. The number 13 symbolizes death as glorious and attaining “real life”. But you must go through the 12 stages first.

o   Fear of Friday the 13th is called Triskaidekaphobia.

o   The fear of Friday the 13th started as a Norse Myth where 12 gods were having a party in Valhalla (Heaven) and capricious Loki came as the 13th guest and arranged for Hoder the Blind to shoot Baider the Beautiful with a mistletoe tipped arrow where he died and the earth grew dark.

Full Harvest Moon

 

 

By Tara Sutphen

The Full Harvest Moon (Native American) at 12* Aries will culminate October 5, 2017 11:40 AM PdT/2:40 PM EdT (Farmers Almanac/Moon Phases Calendar). The current phase of the moon is a Waxing Gibbous (97.4% illuminated), 13.3 days old and at a distance of 384079 Km (238655 Miles).

 

This Full Moon in Aries is all about coming into your forward movement and assertiveness. Speak what you mean, mean what you say and move your body to achieve. A lot of ideas get into our heads but they can get stuck there, we have to get out of our own way over and over again. Haven’t you heard where someone invents something and you had that idea too…well they acted on their notion. Instead of seeing an outcome clearly, we just need to take a stride toward it. One step follows another and then all of a sudden we can use our understanding for viable plans.  Being self-assured in communications allows an expression of needs and wants. Learning to be in calm discussions teaches us to respect the feelings and needs of others.

 

Have you learned to communicate yet? Are you passive or aggressive? Where are you assertive? Do you feel you have a confidence issue? Are you wanting to achieve too much in a single discussion or opinion?

 

  • Basic Assertion: self- disclosure
  • Sympathetic Assertion: recognition of others feelings, needs and wants
  • Importance Assertion: consequences to self or someone else
  • Disagreement Assertion: Misunderstanding
  • Damaging Assertion: Negative feelings and acts

 

Asserting the voice and the body are two different things. Its best to convey ourselves and then act appropriately. The one thing is to remember you have to decide on what you want. When you make a decision, you may not know exactly what to do or where you are going but you have an inkling. While not thinking too hard sometimes, we can manage to move toward what we want in life. Whether its feeding ourselves correctly, working for a good life or having goals to accomplish. Actively Face your Fears – Allow yourself to “Dream and Do”.

Sedona Mystic Training

with Tara Sutphen

 

October 28-29, 2017

 

The Mystic Training is learning to sorce. An occult power class to learn “Sorcery” — how to “sorce” answers and awareness as in the ancient Egyptian Mystery Schools. You will learn to use the power and energy of the Universe and to be at one with that power. Tara will help you to unblock your psychic centers and assist you to make contact with your Spirit Guides and Higher-Self, to channel, automatic write, use unique Tarot techniques, and access the path of your true destiny — opening to the deepest and most powerful part of yourself. We’ll also tap into excellence and merit through the exploration of psychic connection with the other side. Insight leads us out of vagueness. Not everyone seeks to decipher past blunders or catch a glimpse of the future as it might unfold, but those who do want to search for meaning to their dilemmas and gain confidence to live an important and rewarding life. Opening the five senses leads to deeper-consciousness.

Learning to manifest the splendor in all things, we want our relationships, love, success, happiness, family, great health, money, knowledge, wisdom to be the best it can be. Tara will help you unblock your psychic centers and assist you to make contact with your Mystics, Spirit Guides and Higher-Self for guidance.

Happy Full Thunder Moon


Full Thunder Moon

By Tara Sutphen

The Full Thunder Moon (Native American) at 17* Capricorn will culminate July 8, 2017 8:10PM Alaska – 9:10PM PdT/July 9, 2017 12:10AM EdT (Farmers Almanac/Moon Phases Calendar). The current phase of the moon is a Waxing Gibbous (99.3% illuminated), 14.0 days old and at a distance of 403957 Km (251007 Miles).

This Full Moon in Capricorn is all about coming into your organizational and coping skills as an individual, a family member, or co-worker. Cooperation and focusing upon “aims” is the theme this month. Many people think what they do only effects them, but there is a ripple that goes out to their families, friends and on the job. Conducting ourselves is in keeping with what intentions we want to accomplish. It is better to make up our minds and generate a plan, gently put concepts into arrangements. Some people do, but there is never a lone wolf person out there, it is a reminder what we do matters in relation to others. It is best to use some willpower as life can either lead us along or drag us. It is our choice. We become what we think, say and do. It is crucial to be in a position of gaining support as our strategies are put into action. It can be as simple as baking a cake, who is going to eat it. If you don’t have anyone to eat it. Organize a group to help you. It is much the same when it comes to the bigger targets of your determination, align your personal principles and values to bridge connections with others, events and improvements.

What kind of person are you? Who do you want to become? Are you a problem or is it someone/something else? Are you a Creator or a Destroyer? People speak badly about people, places or things and sometimes themselves, it isn’t in their highest good. There can be many problems with humans, events or a job, we’ve ignored the signs along the way and allowed dissension. What is past is just that. Realign, Regenerate, Rejuvenate. Create Organization and Resolutions. Its all about forward movement, it is our journey onward that matters. What gets us to an advanced state of being?

  1. Honesty: Truth always wins, even when bullies are creating chaos. Do not engage in hostility or devious behavior. Turn away and release others bad behavior. Try never to be dishonest to yourself. Notice where you are standing, look down at your feet. What you say can be hurtful. What you do can be irreversible. There is reality and illusion. Click back into reality.
  1. Happiness: Tuning inward toward your soul invites you to experience the spirit of life and its magnificence, learn to enjoy the simplest pleasures. The more you practice joy, it will naturally come…fake it until you make it.
  2. Respect: Treat others how you want to be treated. Make it a learning experience on what you want or don’t want. Observe. Engage non- obtrusively. Be centered. Be understanding, people are fighting battles you have no idea about. Be mindful.
  3. Courage: Be confident and secure in your own being. Know when to speak and when to stay quiet. Be in your inner knowing of staying still or moving forward into action. It takes a brave soul to have entered the atmosphere of earth and all the trials we embark upon, when you are acting with calm self-assurance you are seen as an example of those around you. People look up to others who are in active alignment to the planet.
  4. Compassion: It is the key to true enlightenment. Everyone suffers. Start putting your hand out to help others up instead of pushing them down. Mercy is benevolent and will surely come back to those who give it. If we are graceful in our hearts and minds, we’d find the flow of life easier among our fellow man.

— What takes away from our Soul and its objectives. We may think we have good judgement, which is perfectly fine when it comes to safety and well-being. But to overly judge everyone and everything is a waste of your minutes and hours. It might be time to take inventory of what is the next steps of success and spiritual advancement. Time is precious…

Happy Full Pink Moon


Full Pink Moon

By Tara Sutphen

The Full Pink Moon (Native American) at 21* Libra will culminate April 10, 2017 11:09PM PdT/April 11, 2017 2:09pm EdT/April 11, 2017 6:09PM New Zealand/ April 11, 2017 4:09PM Gold Coast, Australia (Farmers Almanac/Moon Phases Calendar). The current phase of the moon is a Full Moon (99.2% illuminated), 13.9 days old and at a distance of 395424 Km (245705 Miles).

This Full Moon in Libra is all about graciousness. If you’ve been being harsh on yourself or others, now is the time to halt the criticism. You are deserving of a great life, and one of the boundaries we can set up for ourselves is to create peace in our hearts and minds. Even if you don’t have a lot of free time while working to survive, when coming off the job many don’t realize they continue reacting to outside stimulation and obligations. Many of us are conditioned to be busy or in constant movement. For our optimum contentment, we actually need to take a moment to breathe deeply and put our minds in a relaxed state along with aspired usefulness. There is a balance of finding a moment of peaceful inner understanding. Many would say that is the time we sleep, but that’s just it, we’re not consciously aware at that time. Taking minutes or moments while being conscious with some deep breathing can quiet the mind, give us glimpses of re-direction, happy memories, new hopes, or just an easing of the day.

Keeping it all on a positive note. Easy days are started by a good tempo of upbeat enthusiasm. If you can muster up some cheer, it lightens your day and of others. If you’ve been unhappy it’s always the roadmap of life to change your progress. Of course we all know people who are afraid and take no risks at all, but they’re usually in constant criticism or finding an outside substance to quelling their fears. Keeping our minds clear to make the best decisions possible usually isn’t made in haste or under duress. It’s the conception of what is the finest intentions for your life. You are the creator of your reality…

Journal Questions:

How do you acquire a peaceful day

How do you create beauty

How do you create harmony

What makes you happy, truly so…

Being Appreciative of yourself and others is not about ego. It can be recognition of positive traits. It possibly could be the Animas within, on a soul level we know what we find beautiful in the world and we all want to be a part of it. We can never walk in others shoes but we can stroll a sweet journey.

Happy Spring Equinox

Spring Equinox, Ostara, Eostre, Easter, Vernal Equinox

By Tara Sutphen

  • 21st March   Spring Equinox marks the mid-point of the Waxing Year, the nights and days are balanced once again; the time when Kore, (Persephone) was believed to have returned from the Underworld where she had ruled throughout the Winter. The spark of light, born at Winter Solstice has reached maturity, and from here onwards, the days progressively grow longer than the nights. Western culture proclaims this the first day of Spring.Older traditions called the Spring Equinox, Ostara; the time of the festivals of the Grecian Goddess, Eostre, and the Germanic Ostara, both fertility Goddesses of Dawn. These influenced the naming of the modern-day Easter Holiday. New greenery bursts forth from sleeping seeds in the countryside, as metaphorically, pagans also plant their own seeds for future goals, future projects and growth at this time.Decorated eggs, being symbols of fertility are symbolic of Ostara. In days gone, Europeans gave gifts of decorated eggs to new brides, in the hope that they would bear many children. Similarly, bowls filled with eggs were given to farm workers by the farmer’s wife, to ensure a rich harvest. Most all cultures see the egg as a symbol of Life; the actual home of the Soul. In Russia, decorated eggs are still given as gifts to loved ones and buried in graves to ensure rebirth.

    The women gathered the eggs only from hens which were around a rooster and decorated them, allowing no one to watch them work as they transferred the goodness of the household to the designs on the eggs, thus keeping evil away. Dyes were mixed to secret family recipes and special blessings placed on each egg.

    Colors of Ostara Eggs:

  • White:
  • Purity
  • Yellow:
  • Wisdom, a successful Harvest, or Spirituality
  • Green:
  • Spring, rebirth, wealth, youth, growth, happiness
  • Blue:
  • Good health, clear skies
  • Orange:
  • Power endurance, ambition, courage
  • Red:
  • Happiness, hope, passion, nobility, bravery, enthusiasm, love
  • Brown:
  • Enrichment, good harvest, happiness
  • Purple:
  • Faith, trust, power
  • Pink:
  • Success, friendship, love
  • Black:
  • Remembrance

Lore:

  • The custom of eating Hot Cross Buns also has pagan origins. The Saxons ate buns that were marked with a cross in honor of Eostre; Ancient Greeks consumed these types of buns in their celebrations of Artemis, Goddess of the hunt, and the Egyptians ate a similar cake in their worship of the Goddess Isis.
  • There are conflicting ideas as to what the cross symbol represents. One suggestion is that it is a Christianisation of horn symbols that were stamped on cakes to represent an ox, which used to be sacrificed at the time of the Spring Equinox. Another theory relates to Moon worship; the bun representing the full Moon, and the cross, its four quarters. Christianity gave new meanings to the symbolism of the buns, saying the cross represented the Crucifixion Cross. Thus, superstitions arose crediting these buns as being charms against evil, so after Good Friday, people would save one or two of them to hang in their homes as amulets. During the festival season and indeed, for a long time afterwards, fishermen would carry these Easter buns in their boats, for protection.
  • The Spring Equinox defines the season where Spring reaches it’s peak, with the powers of light increasing. The God of Light, (Llew), now gains victory over his twin, the God of Darkness. Llew was reborn at the Winter Solstice and is now old and strong enough to vanquish his rival twin and mate with his Mother Goddess. The great Mother Goddess, who returned to her Virgin aspect at Imbolc, welcomes the young Sun God’s attentions and conceives a child. The child will be born nine months from now, at the next Winter Solstice, when the cycle closes, only to begin anew.
  • The Easter Bunny is another symbol which has obvious links to fertility, rebirth, and the abundance of life which is evident in Spring.
  • Eostre was a playful Goddess whose reign over the earth began in Spring when the Sun King journeyed across the sky in his chariot, bringing the end of Winter. Eostre came down to Earth then, appearing as a beautiful maiden with a basket of bright colorful eggs. Eostre’s magical companion was a rabbit who accompanied her as she brought new life to dying plants and flowers by hiding the eggs in the fields.

Happy Full Snow Moon


Full Snow Moon

By Tara Sutphen

The Full Snow Moon (Native American) at 22* Leo will culminate February 10, 2017 4:33PM PsT/7:33pm EsT (Farmers Almanac). The current phase of the moon is a Full Moon (99.4% illuminated), 14.0 days old and at a distance of 377249 Km (234412 Miles). Two cosmic events on Friday night: a lunar eclipse and the passing comet. The eclipse will be a penumbral lunar eclipse, covering the moon with a portion of Earth’s shadow. While looking for the eclipse the moon will be faintly darker than usual. The comet you can see a few hours after the eclipse, Comet 45P, it’s been visible for the past two months with binoculars and telescopes, but it now makes its closest approach to Earth, when it will be “only” 7.4 million miles away according to NASA. If you look to the east approximately at 3am on Saturday, it will be visible in the constellation Hercules. It will be a vivid blue-green with a glowing tail.

This Full Moon in Leo is all about your exterior shining in the world and your resourceful tendencies coming to the fore. Vibrancy and animation are easily attained as you move toward recognition and future aspirations simply. Complications aren’t necessary, and all of a sudden you spot where you can pacify frustration. These hindrances can be of any nature, love, unhappiness, weakness or sickness. You are in a mode of creating the best possible outcome in all things, having a bigger view of the possibilities laying before you. We don’t always think we can do the things we want to achieve although keeping calm, cool and collected helps get us to a goal. Forward movement is the key, brave and straight feat gains strategy. Sometimes we don’t understand why we had to take it slow to get where we are going or who we’ve wanted to be. But the learning continues, the vivaciousness of life is only waiting to be tapped such as the clarity of water, pulsating food, genuine love, delight of the land and the spiritual evolution of all things. Open yourself to expect great light and rapid innovation.
