For all of you early risers, look east tomorrow morning before sunrise. Venus and the Moon will conjunct. They were gorgeous this morning at about 6:30 am, but tomorrow they are closest. Perhaps not visible, but still potent is the Beehive Cluster joining them. Bees are masters at creating sweet nectar and the perfect hexagonal designs, and Venus represents perfect harmony of the Golden Ratio PHI. It is the only planet creating a perfect pentagram in the heavens every 8 years. Bees (6-Flower of Life) and Venus (5-PHI harmony) with La Luna is blessing us with beauty and harmony.
Unprecedented fires and destruction are occurring in the Western US as I write this. Many of the towns in Oregon are where I grew up are partially or totally burned…many friends are affected. If you have a mantra practice, please chant and pray for balance of the elements.
Prayer is powerful and radical action to slow further climate imbalance is essential to alleviate further suffering. The Hopi have a word for ‘a world out of balance’, Koyaanisqatsi. The Hopi saw this coming long ago. Following the Indonesian tsunami in 2004, I wrote a simple chant as a prayer for balance. It’s called ‘Rosslyn Gypsies’, since the melody was inspired by the 15th century gypsies who lived close to nature in Rosslyn, Scotland. I could almost hear them singing in the woods, during my many walks in moist, green Roslin Glen. The lyrics are: Fire and Water, Earth and Air, balance in all life, this is our prayer.
Let’s join together with our voices and prayers for gentle rain for the burning areas. Pray for the safety of all beings, including the heroic firefighters. source: aniwilliams.com
