From my beautiful friend Ann:
Good Afternoon Star Beings,
The September Full Moon blesses us this Friday, the 16th, at 2:05 p.m., CDT.  It occurs in the astrological sign of Pisces.  A Lunar Eclipse happens shortly before, at 1:55 p.m., CDT.  This is a Penumbral Lunar Eclipse where the Moon will pass through just the edge of Earth’s shadow.  Although this creates a more subtle visual effect than the other two types of Lunar Eclipses, it will be a very energy-filled, powerful time, nonetheless.
Our Intention for this Full Moon is to release the notion and mindset of “rugged individualism”.  Our wondrous Mother Earth, and all of the Beings who call her “Home”, are in this huge shift together.  For the past several years, we have been navigating previously uncharted territory, circumstances which stand to persist for a long time to come.  Much of the outcome depends on the quality and type of intentions, thoughts and deeds we humans spawn, for it is our species which has the greatest impact on this Earth, be it neutral, beneficial or malevolent.
When we can change our focus from “I” to “We”, and let our thoughts, actions, and intentions flow toward what is good for all, rather than what is of the most benefit to each of us as individuals, it pushes us just that much further into the Aquarian Age and its qualities of Unity, Love, and Brotherhood, to a better existence and life for each and every Being, human or not.  It also brings us that much closer to being the good stewards that we are meant to be for our most beautiful Planet.  It is our choice as to which direction we want our precious Home to go.
Whatever choices we do make hold consequences for all. We are all connected.
Please join with me in Ceremony tomorrow.  As always, set your Sacred Space.  Light your candle — a symbol of the Light that we have committed to be and to shine upon this glorious Planet.  Invite and acknowledge your Compassionate Helping Spirits and Allies, both seen and unseen:  the Archangels, the Goddesses, the Hidden Folk, the Directions, any pets who love being around energy work, Mother Mary, Mary Magdalene, Jeshua, Quan Yin and other Ascended Masters, our Tree Spirits and Animal Friends, the Angels and our Otherworldly Beings.
Have a joyful celebration!  Have a party!  We are blessed to be here, at this time, on this journey to co-create a truly magnificent New World. We are among those who have been given the rare opportunity to build a new “Home” where every choice, every decision we make can utilize the 7th Generation Principle of our Native Americans.
Raise your energy with chanting, singing, drumming, rattling, whistling, dancing, whatever method or methods resonate with you and help you to become the “hollow bone” so necessary to this work.   Feel your Heart beating, feel it connecting to the Heartbeat of Mother Earth, as well as to every other Heartbeat in this incredible Web of Life of which we are all a part. Bring your concentration to our Intention for this Full Moon.  Ask that there be a cleansing of the “rugged individualism” mindset, that it be released from the human consciousness, as well as the collective unconscious.  We are in a New Age, an era where that type of thinking no longer serves our Planet.  At the moment you feel ready, let our Intention release.  In whatever way feels right for you, sense it fanning out over our Beloved Pachamama, maybe even contributing to a “quantum leap” in our evolution, for anything is possible!
I have been noticing the monarch butterflies as they are making their treks to Mexico and southern California for the Winter.  It is easy to be filled with awe and wonder at how such tiny Beings can travel 2500 miles, navigating among various weather events, speeding cars, predators, and whatever other trials they may encounter along the way.  Yet they make it, to warmer environments where they can survive and thrive.  As Ina Woolcott observes, to Native Americans the butterfly symbolizes change, color, and joy. They spread their beauty through pollinating the flowers.
Butterflies “teach us that growth and transformation does not have to be a traumatic experience.” We may have a long way to go on this journey to our New World, yet just as the Monarch makes its 2500-mile trek, “We can do this!”
Peace, Love, Blessings and Persistence,
