Why do we have April Fools?

Cayelin_April_2016April 1st is know as All Fools Day! The genesis of our current understanding of April Fool’s Day grew out of the 1582 change in the calendar named after Pope Gregory. However, the calendar was inspired by Nicholaus Copernicus because the Catholic Church wanted a calendar that would allow them to easily plan their holy days (especially Easter) and they wanted a calendar that could be relied on to be accurate for thousands of years.

Perigee Full Moons


2018 began with a Perigee Full Moon (meaning it was closest to the Earth) so the Moon appeared bigger as it was rising on January 1 and also at the end of January is a second Perigee Full Moon Total Lunar Eclipse. The image to the right gives a sense of how much bigger a Perigee Full Moon is compared to a regular Full Moon.

Also a Perigee Full Moon (now called a Super Moon by many) has a powerful impact on Tides, Weather and our Intentions. It is a fairly well known experience by many who work in hospitals that more babies are born around a Full Moon than any other time of the month. Three of my four children were born near a Full Moon including my twins who were born 20 minutes before an exact Full Moon. There tend to be more accidents and emergency room visit around a Full Moon time but even more so around a Perigee Full Moon as it is amplifying what we are feeling.

When a Perigee Full Moon and a Total Lunar Eclipse occur together I like to call that a Super Mega Moon providing a quantum amplification of our intentions or what we are holding in our consciousness accelerating the manifestation process.

How Does the Perigee Full Moon Affect the Beginning of 2018?
Lunacy is connected to the intensity of feelings often associated with a Full Moon – so a Perigee Full Moon is amplifying that affect. Are opportunity is to connect with these amplified energies through attention and intention to not only be informed by the Perigee Full Moon affect but to also help inform the mysteries through our intention and how we are working with these energies as we set the vibrational field for 2018.

Zubenelgenubi – A Star Gate to the New World?

Cayelin K Castell 201

Jupiter, in its 12 year cycle, begins 2018 between the stars of Zubenelgenubi and Zubenelshamali. Mars is with Zubenelgenubi January 1 and catches up to Jupiter on January 6, both aligned with Zubenelshamali and near Zubenelgenubi.

Jupiter can only be here every 12 years and Mars every 2 years or so and they don’t always come together near these stars. This alignment won’t happen again in this area of the sky until November 24, 2053 when Jupiter and Mars are together at 20 Scorpio.

Jupiter expands our vision of possibilities and Mars is about taking action to bring these visions into form. Without action – it doesn’t matter how magical or amazing our vision is – it isn’t going to manifest. Mars and Jupiter together is a great combination for activating this Stargate.

If you have planets angles or Nodes near 15 Scorpio 17  (within at least 3 to 6 degrees) then you have a personal connection with Zubenelgenubi and the Scales of Justice (what just IS) representing the balance between yin and yang, male and female, Heaven and Earth. Zubenelgenubi is my personal star as it was rising at the moment of my birth!

Zubenelshamali is around 19 Scorpio 35 marking the other pan in the constellation of the Scales. These stars are linked with the principles of natural law (or cosmic law) going beyond the limits and rules of human law.

I AM the Serpent Bearer! A Personal Story

In 2015 I posted an article about Dreaming into Wholeness with the Serpent Bearer, also known as Ophiuchus, the constellation that is often mistaken as the 13th sign due to the assumption that Signs and Constellations are the same. They are not the same. Signs relate to the seasons (Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall) and the Constellations are the backdrop that the signs or seasons move through. You can find out more about the Serpent Bearer constellation and its powerful connections to dreaming and healing HERE.

Dreaming Into Wholeness with the Serpent Bearer

Dreaming into Wholeness with the Serpent Bearer
(see follow up more personal sharing of a healing dream I had I am the Serpent Bearer suggesting that the original serpent bearer may actually have been feminine.)

Saturn is traveling below the Serpent Bearer for most of 2017 in alignment with Rasalhague, the Crown Chakra of Ophiuchus. How are we dreaming a new reality, a new form, a new sustainable way of living the life we are living?

“Ophiuchus means ‘he who holds the serpent’ and that is how he is depicted.
… on equal terms with equal powers”.
[Manilius, Astronomica, 1st century AD, book 1, p.31]

Astronomers redrew the boundaries of the constellations in 1922 publishing them as described here placing the feet of Ophiuchus/Serpent Bearer (just above the body the constellation of the Scorpion) on the Ecliptic. Since that time astronomers tell us that the Sun travels through Ophiuchus from Nov 29 to Dec 18 and have made claims about how this is the 13th sign. It is NOT the 13th sign. Read More

Saturn in Capricorn from 2017 to 2020

On December 19, 2017 Saturn enters Capricorn for the first time in nearly 30 years. Saturn moves through Capricorn through 2020 as it catches up to Pluto and is joined by Jupiter in a rare planetary line-up that year that hasn’t happened in Capricorn for 733 years.

Equally remarkable and setting up the time Saturn is in Capricorn is how Saturn is entering Capricorn near the December Solstice. In the last three hundred years the closest Solstice entrance of Saturn into Capricorn was in 1870 and it is over 200 years before that happens again. Read More

The Magic and Mystery of May 20 Sun, Pleiades at the Zenith

Each year around May 20 in the current era – the Sun and Pleiades come together as they cross the Zenith point (meaning they are directly overhead) at 20 degrees North Latitude at high Noon.

This is a time the Mayans called the “Days of No Shadows” because no shadows are cast when you have a straight stick in the ground or a person standing perfectly straight. There are no shadows cast by the pyramids either…

The Sun and Pleiades together on these days happens for about 144 years every 26,000 years. It is happening NOW!

Saturn, Capricorn and The Doing Addiction

Saturn enters Capricorn on December 19, 2017 energizing possibilities of how to create new ways of creating our physical reality. One of the most important considerations is awareness around how we may be Doing Addicted so we can change it.

Doing (taking action) is a natural part of life similar to the necessity for eating. However, both doing and eating can also become an addiction.

An addiction is anything that we do to excess in ways that are harmful to our health and well-being. There are obvious addictions such as drugs, alcohol, gambling, etc… Most of us might recognize a Doing Addiction as someone who is a work-a-holic. However, the Doing Addiction often shows up in subtle ways that are more challenging to spot. Read More
