Chiron in Aries and the Power of Kindness

Chiron in Aries – Warriors for Kindness
The quickest, most radical and truly life changing, shamanic healing action we can now take is to treat ourselves and others with kindness. Kindness is a powerful healing elixir** we can distill within and without through Chiron’s assistance to transform any past wounds that have hardened hearts and created a culture of competition and domination rather than cooperation and equality.

I am imagining this as shifting the dominator Warrior paradigm to a Warriors for Kindness paradigm. It takes incredible strength, courage and commitment to operate from kindness and love. Read More

Planets With Regulus – Heart Star of the Lion~ess

By Cayelin K Castell

Regulus is a magical marvelous star of  wonder inspiring us to know ourselves through the power of self-love.

One of the four Royal Stars of the ancients, Regulus, is the closest to the ecliptic less than half a degree from the ecliptic line so is often occulted by the Moon. (Astronomy section has more)

The other three Royal stars for example; Antares, Fomalhaut and Aldebaran are between 2 and 4.5 degrees below the ecliptic.

In our current time, the Sun travels within 10 degrees of Regulus from August 13 to September 03 with the exact conjunction usually on August 22 or 23 depending on your time zone.

Regulus is a Behenian star or magical star of the ancient alchemists who would have used a 6 degree orb to consider a planetary effect on the star. The Sun with Regulus then would be within 6 degrees from August 16 to August 29. (See more on the magical Behenian StarsRead More

Voting for our Reality

Voting for Our Reality Through All We Do

Many do not exercise their right to vote in elections – siting reasons such as: elections are rigged anyway so it is a waste of time, or there is no one that is trust worthy enough to vote for, or all the candidates are bought by corporations and those with money so that is who the politicians serve. All of this may be true (or partially true). That said it is still important to exercise our right to vote.

Many are discouraged from voting because it has become so difficult to do in person. However, most places now have the option to vote by mail (that is the one I chose because it gave me plenty of time to consider my vote) or early voting places are also available in most areas.

More people of voting age did NOT vote in the last election (2016) than did vote. Yes, there is discrimination and it is difficult for minorities and the poor to vote due to our unfair way of registering voters, creating districts and closing polling places. Yes the system needs a lot of improvement or maybe a complete overhaul. However, it also needs our participation. Just think how different our world would be if more of us took the time to share our voice through our vote.

My Me Too Journey

Me at age 16

I have been thinking about sharing this story for a long time now in support of others who have been through similar and even more challenging experiences. It is scary for me to do this and it feels important to honor those who have had the courage to step up and risk so much to bring what has been in the shadow for them – into the light.

With the September, 2018 current events playing out so dramatically I find I am deeply and powerfully affected in ways I had not imagined I would be.

It is Personal – Not Political 
This is NOT about a political ideology. I do my best to stay out of  the “this is right and this is wrong” political polarization I see happening, especially as it has escalated in recent times. Sharing my story is not meant to further fuel the polarization as that is not helpful.

What I am sharing is what I’ve experienced and how troubling it is we live in a world that continues to minimize the challenges of sexual abuse victims. In addition to the main story I am about to share – I have experienced sexual assault and harassment in other arenas listed in my timeline below.

Those in positions of power have had free reign to terrorize and abuse both men and women in many of the places where we should feel safe and protected including home, family, work place, government and religious institutions. Something that seems so striking to me is the denial of the abusers and the lasting impact these experiences have caused so many, including those in personal relationship with the victims. I was married to a victim (explained further on) and the effects were traumatic for him and ultimately his loved ones, children, family, friends and of course Me Too.

For me the question is – how to do we heal and forgive while also creating a climate of accountability for all involved? How do we do this without turning it into a political circus so genuine healing can occur? I don’t have answers and it seems the answers have been illusive. Yet, the courage of the women and men who have come forward to share their Me Too story is already having an impact in raising awareness around how prevalent this has been and continues to be. Often simply being heard, believed and supported affects a potent and under estimated empowering start to the healing process. Read More

Chiron in Aries Healing the Wounds of Injustice

by Cayelin K Castell
.

Chiron in Aries is about Shamanically Healing the wounds of injustice through at least three powers including:
The Power of Forgiving the Unforgiveable (see below)
The Power of Kindness
The Power of Love  (coming soon)
.
Chiron entered Aries on April 17, 2018
Returned to Pisces September 25, 2018
Plus Chiron at Zero Aries opposed the Sun and squared Saturn in Capricorn at the September 22 Equinox
Re-enters Aries on Feb 18, 2019
 .
The Equinoxes mark the days of balance between light and dark when the Earth experiences equal hours of day and night. With Chiron crossing the March Equinox (or Zero Aries point) three times we can imagine a significant Shamanic Healing process is being energized to restore cosmic balance and transform the wounds of injustice.
 .
Daniel Giamario and I took a deep look at Chiron in Aries in this special tele class exploring the intent and activations this might inspire including the remarkable activations in USA chart. Available for instant download. http://shamanicastrology.com/2018-teleclasses.

Honoring My Mom, Merilyn Massey Sep 1933 to Aug 1998

Me (age 22) and My Mom (age 44) in 1978

This post is a way to honor and remember my Mom, Merilyn Massey. She died on August 18, 1998 just before her age 65 birthday. My Mom was born on September 6, 1933.  The story of her remarkable transition and the gifts of her conscious death process are HERE

Merilyn had a bachelor’s degree in Journalism and a master’s degree in Professional Writing but somehow she never found the time to complete or publish her own writing. So in honor of her desire to be a published writer I am sharing the beginnings of a book she had written that I found on a yellow legal pad a couple of years after she passed.

I typed them up way back then and they are presented here exactly as she hand wrote them. I found it interesting to notice that she writes about many of the same things I do! I guess I am my mother’s daughter after all… Read More
