Centering, Shielding, and Grounding

CenteringYou may have heard these terms before. Its pretty much metaphysics 101. Think of it as self-defense for the psychic senses. I mean, it makes sense that if you don’t know what you’re doing, you can open yourself to energies that you don’t want to absorb; or you can find yourself losing your own energy very quickly. Knowing about centering, shielding, and grounding can help you to manage those energies better, so that you can stay ‘in the world, but not of it,’ and continue to work with metaphysical energy without draining yourself, or getting overwhelmed. Let’s start with grounding.

Grounding is a way of staying focused and stress free. Think about an electrical current; it needs to be grounded so that any leaking current gets safely carried away. It’s the same when grounding psychic energy. It sounds mysterious, but it isn’t. It’s as simple as using your physical senses to connect to something that is physical and tangible. Pet an animal, have a bath or a shower, eat or drink something, smell a soothing scent, look at something calming.

Celebrating Lammas

LamasLammas is one of the festivals on the Pagan calendar. It’s a Celtic festival, marking the first harvest, and honoring the Irish god Lugh–hence this festival also being called Lughnasadh (pronounced loo-nass-eh–Lammas is easier!). The name Lammas comes from the festival of the loaf mass, a celebration marking the first loaf of bread made with that year’s first harvest of grain. It’s also during this festival that the seed grain would be saved for the following year, ensuring that the crops could be planted, and life would be sustained.

Because it is so intimately connected to the harvest, this is very much an agricultural festival. In fact, it was considered very bad luck to start to harvest before celebrating Lammas, which is held from 31st July to 2nd August. The harvest then continued until the last festival on the wheel of the year, marked by Samhain, or Halloween.

Venus Retrograde – True Duplicity

Venus Retrograde

Many of us would think that Mercury is the planet of duality, because he is the ruler of Gemini, the twins. But, the mythological Venus, ruler of love, (Aphrodite in Greek mythology) is actually the ruler of two titles. Aphrodite Urania, celestial or heavenly, and Aphrodite Pandemos, common people. This is the distinction between sacred and profane love, or commonly known as the “fine line between love and hate.” In astrology Venus rules two signs, Taurus and Libra. Taurus represents the Pandemos, the earthy, tactile side of Venus, and Libra depicts the Uranian side, morality, properness, and social acceptability. Our modern day “Madonna-Prostitute” complex is a derivative of the mythology of Venus.

Saturn Return

Saturn Return
Saturn return is something that astrologers consider to be a very important life event, but many of us regular folks do not know what it means. Every planet makes a return. A return in astrology means that a planet has returned to the place it was when you were born. You go through your lunar (Moon) return monthly, and your solar (Sun) return every year around your birthday. Usually the first return of a planet brings the really life changing events. Your first solar return, you stop being a baby and turn into a talking, walking toddler. (Because Mercury and Venus are planets inside of the Earth’s orbit – inferior planets – they hit their return in about a year, but they do not have much influence.) Your Martian (Mars) return comes around the age of two, bringing the “terrible twos,” where you begin to express your independence from your parents. Your Jupiter return comes around the age of 12 when you stop being a child and become a young adult. Saturn returns around the age of 28 to 30, and he brings maturity. You realize you’re not a kid anymore, and its time to get serious about your goals and personal values. Uranus returns after about 84 years of life. Uranus can bring interests in new things, and he encourages the rebel in us to emerge. “When I am an old woman I shall wear purple.” Neptune takes about 165 years to orbit the Sun, so as humans, we are yet to discover our Neptune return. Some astrologers believe that when our longevity increases to our Neptune return, our psychic abilities will get turned-on 100%. They suspect that we could even become telepathic at that point. And, Pluto takes about 250 years to orbit the Sun, so we’ve got a long way to go, before we hit that one.

The Dos and Don’ts of a Mercury Retrograde

Mercury RetrogradeIf I had a nickel for every time I’ve heard someone complain about Mercury’s retrograde, I would be a very rich woman, indeed! And… its not Mercury’s fault. Its the humans’ fault for not respecting Mercury’s rhythms. We have no problems respecting the rhythm of the Sun and the four seasons that we experience with every revolution around our solar system. We have no problems respecting the Moon from New to Full and high tide to low tide. Hell… we have more respect for the rhythms of Saturn and the seven year itch it brings, than Mercury. Mercury spends about as much time reverse compared to direct, as we spend sleeping compared to being awake, and Mercury has been following his direct/retrograde cycles for much, much longer than humans have been around to complain.
