Welcome to the September Celestial Timings
How are you navigating these increasingly intense times? I find myself personally feeling I am experiencing the BEST of times and definitely challenging times simultaneously.
I am deeply grateful for all the wonder and magic that is occuring daily and I am still in the midst of practicing acceptance of what IS and surrendering to what is beyond my control whil also letting go of resistance and resisting my resistance as I shared last month.
I find I can be easily distracted before remembering to breathe and return to my primary intent – to BE the change, to BE the Love, to BE the Magic! YES!!!
September features Venus and Mercury with Spica and Arcturus, the September Equinox followed by Mercury stationing with these magical stars on September 26 and of course much more.

Star and Stone
Snake and Bone
Around the June Solstice 1999 at the Standing Stone Circle above Faywood Hot Springs, New Mexico I had the pleasure of experiencing co-facilitating the emergence of several woman recognizing their Magdalene Priestess selves. (Stone Circle pictured to the right.
During that time we were in high ceremony amoung the Standing Stones, underneath brilliant Starry Skies and we had been gifted with a snake skin by one of the women who wasn’t able to join us for that ceremony. We did her ceremony a few days before leaving for Faywood and that is when we got the snake skin.
I kept hearing the words Star, Stone, Snake. I knew I was missing something and shared it with Gina Dawn my co-facilitator and she came back to me with Star and Stone, Snake and Bone.
Here is what is known. The Stars and Stones remind of us our connection with Earth and Sky. Ancient Standing Stone Circles were built to track solar, lunar and other celestial cycles.
These Stone Circles serve as reminders of the natural cycles of Earth and Sky, as well as portals to the starry realms that are so intimately linked to who we are and where we originate. The Stars carry specific codes of information that are available to inspire and guides us when we are willing to receive them. The Stars carry fire energy linked with spirit, the stones carry feminine energy linked with the Earth. Snakes also carry fire energy as they connect closely with the Earth. Bones of course carry earth energy.
The Snake and Bone aspects remind of us the genetic encoding we carry within our bodies. The entwined snakes on the caduceus (modern medical symbol and also depicted with many important mythic beings such as Hermes and Thoth) is a symbolic representation of human DNA. Snakes or serpents are also potent symbols of creative life force energy, sometimes feared and other times revered.
Our bones carry this genetic coding, and is the part of the human body that remains the longest after death. Even those who are cremated have bits and pieces of bones in their cremation ashes. The stones are viewed by many as the bones of the Earth, holding the form in many ways, especially noticeable when found in Stone Circles. The bones anchor the form of the human body while living, when bones are discovered centuries later they help tell the stories of how people lived in the past. Most ancient cultures honored the bones of their ancestors, somehow knowing their importance beyond what we remember today.
Back then I felt the mysteries calling me as the Celestial Cycles further inspired us through the continued activation of important star codes and pathways.
In 2021 the Nodal Axis is powerfully connected to Aldebaran, the eye of the Bull and Antares, heart of the Scorpion for most of this year. These two stars form an axis or gateway to multi-dimensional realms. Antares is being activated by the South Node or the mysteries of the past. Back in 1999 Pluto and Chiron were with Antares and Aldebaran was with Jupiter. In 2021 the North Node is with Aldebaran.
Antares has had many different names and meanings connected to it as described by Traci De Regula’s book The Mysteries of Isis,
“Among the stars named after Isis is Antares, which was associated with Selkit, the scorpion goddess who was sometimes depicted in the Isian headdress. Antares was associated with Isis in the ceremonies conducted in conjunction with the great pyramid complex at Giza, where she bore the special title of ‘Lady of the Pyramids’.”
When considering the great Pyramids are specially designed initiation chambers that are oriented to access the mysteries of the heavens and ground them on the Earth, we get a deeper sense of the total transformational power of this star with the South Node activation connecting us to these past mysteries. These are transformative energies, initiating Shamanic Death, Transformation, and Rebirth. The potency of their combined alchemy works at a deep cellular, atomic and sub-atomic level. Once the caterpillar becomes the butterfly, the butterfly never returns to being a caterpillar. The transformation is irreversible and complete.
In the southern latitudes around where I live in Tucson, Arizona, Centaurus is fully visible on summer nights with a low horizon. Centaurus spans 60 degrees of the sky and has within it the star Alpha Centauri (a.k.a. Rigil Kentaurus, Hadar and Tolliman).
Some may remember how this star was made famous by the Lost In Space TV series. Alpha Centauri or Rigil Kentaurus is located in the foot of the Centaur. This star is the closest naked eye star to Earth (only about 4.3 light years away) and is the third brightest fixed star in the sky. It is believed to have been important to the ancient Egyptians as indicated by Richard Allen in Star Names.
Allen says at least nine temples in northern Egypt dating from 3800 to 2575 BC and several in southern Egypt from 3700 BC on, were aligned to capture the heliacal rise (rising just before the Sun as a morning star) of Rigil Kentaurus at autumnal equinox. The Egyptians may have called this star Serk-t. The Chinese called it Nan Mun, the South Gate. It is also known as Hadar in Arabic, meaning ground.
I see Centaurus symbolizing the Sky Temple of Chiron, where by virtue of his myth we know Chiron resides as a guardian of the gateway to the celestial mysteries. Chiron inspires us with the sense that there are realms of knowing beyond our human understanding and that we can access and communicate with these realms when we consciously die to the wounds that keep us earthbound.
In 2021 Chiron is trine Antares and the South Node suggesting we are experiencing an alchemy designed to transform our deep wounds into our medicine. We may experience how these wounds can act as catalysts for the desire to die to what does not serve our pure essence.
Chiron chose death, rather than living with a wound he could not cure. This addresses a fear that may be at the root of our human dilemma, the fear that we will never be healed or whole, but that we may be wounded forever. Indeed this fear may suggest to us that we are not divine, but mere mortals doomed to suffer until we physically die.
After all Chiron was an immortal and even he was at the affect of this fate. On another level Chiron reminds us to choose how we deal with what fate hands to us. Through his conscious choice to surrender to the transformational process of death, he is healed and returned to wholeness. He is transformed into a glory greater than we may fully comprehend.
This death may not have to be a literal physical death, but a conscious choice to surrender ourselves to the alchemy of transformation and ascension similar to the caterpillar’s metamorphosis into the butterfly or Chiron’s metamorphosis into the stars.
In this time of Shamanic Death and Rebirth into our true destiny as cosmic divine beings it might feel like we are in Hell. This is where we come face to face with our deepest fears, including the fear that we may never be healed or whole. It also includes the beliefs and perceptions that prevent us from living our destiny authentically and powerfully. All that is needed is to surrender, let go and allow the transformation to take place. AND YES…that is often much easier said than done.
We are made of the Stars – Star Stuff
We are made of the Earth – Stone and Bone
We are made of Pure Life Force Energey – Kundalini Serpent – Snake

This is some of what I wrote last month:
We have been in an interesting planetary Pluto cycle that was intensely energized when Pluto was with Saturn and Jupiter last year.
Last year and so far this year has been collectively rough. It has also forced many to look at their personal fears including the fear of death.
Pluto has now caught up to me personally and is asking (well actually demanding) I die to aspects of myself that longer serve.
This requires surrender (something I am not that good at) hence why it helps me to remember resistance is futile because Pluto will create the alchemy by whatever means it takes. The more I resist the more intense the events become to help me let go and trust what is unfolding.
Lao Tzu wrote in the Tao Te Ching:
Throw me in hell and I will find a way to enjoy it.
In many ways life has never been better, happier or more fun. There are just these few areas taking up a lot of space and energy that I have been resisting.
I have been aware that I can get caught in a loop of resisting my resistance. That just adds to the resisting issue. It feels like some sort of cosmic joke. Hilarious how resisting being resistant just adds to the resistance.
With this in mind, I am committing to letting go and allowing whatever is next to show me the way and when I become aware I have been resisting I am recommitting to practicing acceptance and self-forgiveness – even if it is simply accepting that I am resisting.
I am sharing this for all those who either are in a Pluto cycle, have been in a Pluto cycle or are about to be in Pluto cycle – yes that is everyone. The gifts, the treasures, the empowerment and rebirth are very much worth the agony that ideally ultimately leads to ecstasy.
In honor of Pluto I here is a link to my current favorite song (a blast to the past), something I have been enjoying singing because it is such a great reminder about embracing death. Sung by Blood, Sweat and Tears – guessing they had no idea that name is such a great description of Pluto. https://youtu.be/ovhV_zSOVSc
