New Moon with a Mercury Retro on Top

Written by Sherrie Locke on 10 Caban/Noj, May 17, 2015.

I haven’t posted in a while, partially due to the fact that I am (almost) in the middle of my Path of the Plummed Serpent, partly due to the fact that I myself have been indulging in the transformative energies at hand. I bet you have been having a time with the energies too (hopefully a good time).

Here we are, already in the middle of May. This is the last full lunar phase before we change elements on the Solstice in June. This feature of Mercury going into the core of the retrograde at the same time the moon is moving into the next cycle is super interesting. It is giving us one last round of review before we enter the next element on the coming Solstice, which for us here in the Northern hemisphere is an exit from the element of AIR, the element of RIGHT INTENT and entering into the element of FIRE which is the element of RIGHT ACTION. For those of you in the Southern hemisphere, you will be exiting the element of WATER the place of RIGHT FAITH/EMOTIONS and entering the element of EARTH the place of RIGHT RECEIVING.

You might ask WHY I am explaining all this the month prior to this event, well, there is a purpose. There are approximately 3 lunar phases in each element, the first is the entry segment, the second is the full energy of that element, the third is the energy preparing us for the next element. What have the last two lunar phases shown you about yourself and others? Where do further changes need to occur to optimize your run through the next element. I am most certain the Universe (You) is showing this to you. If you cannot yet see it, don’t worry, this Mercury retro will bring it up for you to view, review and revamp.

The good news, as always, is… you don’t have to make these changes all at once. The more you willingly make the changes the faster you will transform and be on a totally different platform to achieve the goals in your life. Cleansed, purified, streamlined and ready to rock. The more we willingly let go of control of the way it manifests the bigger and better it can and will manifest. It’s all about holding that space and vision with PASSION.

If you have done your internal work properly you have overcome your internal obstacles and the path opens up ahead of you and all you have to do at that point is say YES and walk through the door into your newest manifestation. It’s as simple as that.
Blog photo-2*side note: when what you have been asking for arrives, you must honor it by letting it change you and your life. If you say no, now is not the time, you may never have the chance again, so be prepared for a huge shift and willing to say yes to the changes when they occur.

Technical details:

This New Moon Occurs at 12:13 AM on the East coast of the US, 9:13 PM on the US West coast, May 18, 2015. Mercury is stationary at the time I am posting this article and will go retrograde at 9:49 PM on the East coast and 6:49 PM on the Pacific coast of the US, about 19 hours after the New Moon.

As always, stay on your prime directive, after all this is a New Moon even with the review cycle it will present. Remember, we are preparing for another elemental cycle, if you set it up right it will carry you to the manifestation of your dreams.

Blessed Be,
S.L.2015

The March 20th New Super Moon, Solar Eclipse and Equinox

Written by Sherrie Locke on 9 Batz and 10 Road, March 2015

Total Solar Eclipse and Spring Equinox 2015Bam! After the three-year, seven-hit, Pluto Uranus Square has completed, we get a brand new Super Moon ripe with a Solar Eclipse (they always occur on a New Moon) and the four precious minutes of the Equinox. It’s the Spring Equinox in the Northern hemisphere, the Autumnal Equinox in the Southern hemisphere.

Change, change, change, and now you have the green light to move forward in a big way with your dreams and visions. You even get to consider moving forward in significant relationships of all types be they personal, business or family.

After the last three years (since June 24th 2012) showing us what changes have needed to occur, and the Uranus lightening bolts bringing the unknown to light, we can lick our wounds, pick up the remaining pieces and get on with life. In a big way.

There will still be adjustments to be made through June until the Solstice. After that, we are coasting (or reeling) in the momentum we have gathered from this slingshot effect.

Go back and evaluate what has happened since late June 2012. What have you learned about yourself? (keep it POSITIVE!) What have you learned about others? (since they are a reflection of your own inner world). How have your relationships shifted? What relationships have strengthened and in what ways? Who vanished from your life? Radical isn’t it?

Let’s get on with the new paradigm! Manifest, manifest, manifest! HELP one another! Be HAPPY! Be LOVE!

Time and Dates of the Eclipses and Equinox

After the last (exact) Pluto Uranus Square on Monday March 16, 2015 at 9:54 PM in Texas, which is also 13 Eagle on the Maya calendar (powerful day all the way around) we will be in the balsamic lunar phase until the March 20th New Super Moon (with a Solar Eclipse), which begins at 29 degrees Pisces. This occurs at 4:36 AM in Texas, 5:36 AM on the East Coast of the US and 2:36 AM on the West Coast. Then the Sun moves into the zodiacal sign of Aries, the beginning of the zodiac in Western Tropical House Astrology.

Equinox exact (the four minutes of balance on a planetary level) occurs at 5:45 PM Texas time, 6:45 PM on the East Coast and 3:45 PM on the West Coast, commencing at the exact time the Sun moves into Aries. Good time to meditate and be still. So you see, this is pretty much an all day event that begins with a Solar Eclipse and ends with the Solar entry into a new element. For those of us in the northern hemisphere we are moving into the element of Air; those in the southern hemisphere are moving into the element of Water.

The total Solar Eclipse (visible in Northern Africa, Europe and the Western part of Asia) is at 29 degrees Pisces 29 minutes. It’s a Total Solar Eclipse in Svalbard Norway and the Faroe Islands, and a Partial Solar Eclipse in Europe, northern and eastern Asia and northern and western Africa. The eclipse starts at 07:41 UTC and ends at 11:50 UTC. This Solar Eclipse will trigger a cycle that will reverberate for about a year or so, with more changes coming. Pay attention to the themes that surface, as they will give you a clue about the year to come.

Be diligent, be cheerful and give thanks you have made it through this three-year portal of radical transformation. Now put it to work for your best interest and the highest good of all.

Change is good,

The Current Energies in March 2015

Written by Sherrie Locke on 8 Tzi, March 2015

How have you been faring in these current energies?

For me, it has been one thing after another, some seeming to pertain to me (*you know it’s all of it) but most seemingly totally related to others. Moms and close relationships have pretty much been key for all of us. Have you noticed yourself getting agitated when people you love don’t take care of themselves?

Personally, this has been a theme throughout my life. As I watch (and sometimes suggest) how things can be improved, suddenly the stress “flips” and funnels right back, making one learn the lesson (ad nauseam) of practice what you preach…or teach.

I’m pretty holistic (some of you who know me are laughing right now, since you know I am the allopathic antithesis point), being a person who only uses Western allopathic medicine for necessary surgical procedures or broken bones.

In this matter you have noticed how people have totally chosen one side of the equation or the other. I have seen recently that there is more attention to food and supplementation. Even allopathic doctors are chiming in on this more than ever.

On another note, we may all be a bit tired or even exhausted from the last three years, so get your rest now while you can. Know your limits but push them a bit everyday. Do set healthy boundaries.

Have you noticed how clearing things out makes room for the new? If so, I bet you are still looking at what else can be let go of.

The Current Lunar Phase and Major Upcoming Square

We are currently entering the portion of the lunar phase to “let go.” Let go of what-ifs and procrastination of all kinds, let go of addictions to people, places and things. Stay centered in your heart.

The next exact Pluto/Uranus square happens on Monday/Tuesday, March 16/17 depending on where you are on the globe. We are thoroughly feeling and sitting in the energy as I write this article. After the exact square, the energy will start to ease up somewhat and the tune will change after we enter this next eclipse cycle, which begins with this next New Super Moon with a Solar Eclipse and the Equinox! Wow, fasten your seat belts!

I will post an article on this event in the next day or so.

Peace and Love,

The First Full Moon of 2015

Written by Sherrie Locke on 5 Ik and 6 Akabal, January 2015.

full-moon

This is my first blog post of 2015. Happy New Year Everyone! My intention with this blog is to write content that is current and relevant to the changes we are all experiencing. Also adding content that is functional with information and exercises to help with this process. It is also my intention in 2015 to start my travel related blog on travel to interesting places and sacred sites and the energies of these different locations, particularly around the region in which I reside which is Guatemala and also Southern Mexico.

Welcome to the new Gregorian calendar year. We entered this year of 2015 on an Imox day on the calendar Maya, 4 Imox, which is interesting based on the fact the the Crocodile (Imox) is seen as the collective consciousness, the water, the deep hidden creatures of all water and thus the primordial Yin. Deep energy indeed. In the Northern hemisphere we are in the element of Earth. In the Southern hemisphere you are in the element of Fire. Soon will come the lunar new year or Chinese New Year, this coming round is the Year of the Sheep or Goat. 2015 is the year of the Wooden Sheep. The Sheep (Goat) is a Yin energy, a symbol of Peace, Harmonious co-existence and Tranquility. That is the primary and fundamental mood for this year.

Back to the upcoming Full Moon at 14 degrees Cancer 31 minutes (in Western astrology). A Capricorn/Cancer axis, this one should be interesting. It occurs at 11:53 PM East coast time, 8:53 PM on the West coast of the US and 10:53 PM here in Texas and also in Guatemala.

This is no ordinary Full Moon event. This full moon and it’s nodes form a grand cross. Sun in Capricorn, Moon in Cancer, South Node in Aries, North Node in Libra. On top of this very powerful Full Moon is Mars opposite Jupiter. It’s a challenge for me to decide which is more potent. I will tell you it will set off polarity. It is the birth of the new, which requires a separation from the original. It is a birthing process. There is a “pushing process” going on, like contractions. Bringing the new forward. Birthing of a new identity, a new future. Mars in Aquarius = BIRTH.

The Mars energy is detachment, so there is a push pull energy going on and the Jupiter energy can make it feel like “too much,” too, too, too much…
Jupiter in Leo says CREATE SOMETHING! It’s the child being kicked out of the womb, be it a job, a relationship or a new identity. It is separation from the norm.

There is the “idealistic” and the “need to live in the future” feeling, and escapism is rampant, the time for that is not now. Now is the time of decision, change, planning and preparation for the future. Does this relationship fit with what I am doing, does this career choice suit my future plans…? fill in the blank… for the FUTURE, which is coming NOW, THIS YEAR! So plan well, evaluate well, get a ‘feel’ for what the dynamics are and if they are a fit with your future.

What are you currently doing for your future?

Blessings for a progressive and prosperous 2015! Happy Full Moon!

The Upcoming New Moon and Change of Elements

Written by Sherrie Locke on 4 Qanil, December 2014.

Here we are at the last New Moon of 2014. This last New Moon of the year occurs during the Solstice. We are entering the element of Earth in the Northern hemisphere, so it is Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year. In the Southern hemisphere you are entering the element of Fire, the Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year. Apex points.

winter-solstice-1

When we approach the apex point or Solstices or any of the four sacred holidays, we are asked to review our progress in this last elemental energy. This one is a little bit different, since it is the last one of the year. We are asked to review the entire year and particularly the last nine-month period, from the beginning of this Zodiacal round. What have you discovered about yourself? How have you made adjustments to achieve your goals? Have you found your focus to be worthy of your time and energy? How have the relationships in your life supported what you are doing?

If you will be still and allow it to happen, the last couple of days of this cycle will bring you further information. Those of us in the Northern hemisphere we are coming to the end of the element of Water. What have you learned about your emotions? What have you seen in others during this cycle? Choose ye well what you spend your time and attention on, for this is the creation of your future. Were you happy? Were you in alignment with your intentions?

Have you made progress? You will see these results over the next three months. If you are happy with the results, then stay the course. If you are not happy with the results, then more change may be in order. Do not fear or be apprehensive, after all, you are the creator of your own reality. You have done all this for a purpose, the purpose of showing you the results of your thinking and the balance (or lack thereof) of your intent and emotions regarding your current goal.

If you have had a successful run during this last elemental journey, then stop and give thanks for all you have received in this cycle. The next one is sure to show you miracles and forward progress in your manifestations. Be diligent!

Technical Information about the Winter Solstice

The exact time of the Solstice is the moment when the Sun enters Capricorn (in Western Astrology), thus the New Moon in Capricorn, which occurs at 6:03 PM on the East Coast of the US, 3:03 PM on the West Coast, December 21, 2014. We will be celebrating here in Texas and in Guatemala at 5:03 PM. Traditionally the feasts are held after the change of elements. Winter Solstice is traditionally called Yule. Happy Yule Tide everyone! The season officially begins!

Blessings!

The Upcoming Full Moon of December 2014

Written by Sherrie Locke on 2 Aj, December 2014.

The December Full Moon is historically a time to reflect and review the year that is completing. It is the last Full Moon before the change of elements with the Solstice on December 21 (December 22 for some of you). I will post an article for that event in the next week or so.

10836365_952584908102575_1724298693_n

Effects of the Full Moon
Remember, the Full Moon breaks impasse, so if you are in any kind of stalemate or a period of indecision, use this Full Moon energy to clear the blockage and get on with things. I have noticed recently, that if people have been “on the fence” about certain things, be it a relationship or career matter, the Universe has served up a change for them.

That is to say that rather than changing that job at an unhealthy work place, a letter of termination was the result, thus time to make a change whether you think you are ready or not. If a relationship has been going nowhere or is not viable, it’s likely that something has happened to bring it to an end, sometimes rather dramatically, be it a business association or a personal relationship. Better to be the one in charge of your life than others dictating that change.

The last Full Moon in any element has a certain energy attached to it. We have three Full Moons in each elemental round (occasionally there is a small variance,). For us in the Northern hemisphere we are ending the element of Water, which rules our emotions, so that will be the theme at this time. For those of you in the Southern hemisphere you are ending the element of Air, which has brought about a change in your thinking or intentions, so pay attention to what comes up and how you have changed or need to make further changes, since we want (ideally) to move into the next element with as little baggage as possible, thus we will have further progress during this next element.

It’s ok if you do not yet know exactly what you want or need to do at this time. Reflect on what you have cleared out and how much room you have made for your new path to emerge.

Happy Full Moon Everyone!

How to Deal with Toxic People

Written by Sherrie Locke on 12 Caban, November 2014.

We have all had to deal with toxic people at one point or another in our lives. It’s not the obvious that I will be addressing in this article.

toxic-people

I am referring to the insidious, sometime even so called “fun” people in our lives. People who are dealing with (or totally ignoring) their addictions. They may be alcoholics or sympathy junkies, they may be addicted to failure or criticism or racism. They may say they want something out of life, but is their behavior really in alignment with their goal?

There are a lot of people who truly believe that sarcasm or stating what bad things can happen in any situation are speaking the truth. Well, this is not the case. It is their truth and they will manifest it. It is not your truth, so don’t confuse this point. They are creating that very thing in their own lives, and if you don’t want it to leak over to you then get away from them. They are toxic and only wish to spread that toxicity to you and everything you do simply by being in your life. Get rid of them now, before you suffer for having them around you in any way shape or form.

Some people say that you can’t pick your family and must stay in a battle with them to keep the peace. Do you see what is wrong with this picture? How can you depend on a family member, an employee or even a friend if what comes out of their mouth is not totally on point with what you wish to manifest in your own life, or if there is a small window that you can interact with them due to some addiction, these are not healthy people, this WILL NOT work. Distance yourself as far as possible from the source or suffer the consequences.

We are in a time in the evolution of the planet when what we think, say and feel reverberates though everything we are creating and is made manifest VERY quickly, so be MINDFUL of what is coming out of your mouth, what you are feeling and if that expression is in alignment with what you wish to manifest.

We are the end of this lunar phase and the end of the Scorpio energies (at least the overall zodiacal sign in Western astrology). This can be a good time, once and for all, to clear the table and get on with what you want to manifest and do. Make sure your words match what you want to see or just say nothing. If you have any addictions, put them to rest once and for all and get on with your life. You might just save a couple of relationships you say you care about. You might have to sacrifice some relationships you thought were important to you. You will be better off all the way around by making this sacrifice.

Full Moon November 6, 2014

Written by Sherrie Locke on 11 Akabal and 12 Net, November 2014

This full moon occurs in the sign of Taurus (in Western astrology). It is the first full moon after the eclipse cycle and solar eclipse (on this last new moon) on October 23/24, 2014. This full moon occurs at 14 degrees Taurus 26 minutes, 5:23 PM on the East Coast, 2:23PM on the West Coast or 4:23 PM here in Guatemala.

full-moonX

How has your life shifted in the last two weeks? What has changed? What is the center of your attention? Is there a new component? A new focus? A new interest or person? Now that you have a good idea what that is, now is the time to let go of anything that does not serve the new you and certainly time to let go of any self limitation and fear based clinging to old ideas, concepts or programming.

Remember, full moons break impasses. What do you want to break free of and move forward into? This may still take some time, but at least you have a better picture of what you DO want and I am most certain a good idea of what is holding you back. So use this energy to break free, with clear intent for your future. Rather than thinking of all the ways things could not work, be open to how things CAN go right and you truly can (and will) manifest your heart’s desire, if you are diligent and true to yourself for the next few weeks and months.

While the moon visits Taurus, she asks us to focus on what is of true value and importance and release what is not. This is the theme of the Taurus full moon Nov 06/07. Building the new, cleansing. Sun in Scorpio inconjunct Uranus in Aries also occurs on full moon day, and this inconjunct just repeats the theme of the last two days. Identify which limitations and restrictions you want to release so you can break through to the new. Use the energy of the Taurus full moon to let go (read my post on letting go). Letting go can be easy, and remember, you are fully supported by the Universe. The only person that stands in your way is you. So just do it, you will surprised at the results.

Let go and let the Universe do its job to bring you your heart’s desire.

Cord Cutting: Letting Go of What No Longer Serves You

Written by Sherrie Locke on 11 Tzi, October 2014

We hold onto things energetically. People hold onto us energetically. Clearing the field is beneficial for all parties concerned and also gets us out of a rut in our thinking and our emotional states. Cord or Line cutting is a practice I was taught many moons ago when I was in my teens. Later, when I was associated with two foundations for psychic research we did lots of experiments on the principles and the outcomes of this type of work.

EnergeticCord

How to Clear Energy

There are many ways to cut and clear energies. My suggestion is that you start with a smudge (read my post), then a shower or salt bath followed by the practice of “line cutting.” This can be done in many ways, such as a recapitulation technique (read my post). Recapitulation is used when there is a remaining emotional charge to the subject; it is best performed before the remaining lines are cut to the subject or subjects.

After you have cleared your aura and the emotional charge around the subject, clearly visualize yourself, then the subject or person. “See” the line and connections. Some may look like rope or string, others might look like rotted spagetti or roots. It is not necessary to clear the other person, and I suggest you just stick to yourself on this one. Look all over yourself, especially behind the shoulder blades, in the chest area, front and back and ladies between your legs if you have had any guests there, men too, check your connections and see who has left a hook a line or something.

When you have an idea of “where” they are attached, then pull out a sword or a giant pair of scissors and snip, snip, chop, chop, just like cutting weeds. The other end will go back where it came from. After performing this, breathe deeply the light and fill those holes with clear white light until they are radiating light, until “you” are radiating light. Now seal your aura, and you are done… next!

Don’t worry about cutting a valuable connection. If you cut the existing energy, it will re-connect and be a clearer and stronger connection. When I do cord cutting now, I use one fell swoop and cut all previous connections. I find that my loved ones always reconnect with me and that we are clearer than the previous vibration. Usually I can get a good nights rest, an *extra bonus.

Line cutting allows us to let go of attachment and make room for the Universe to do its job. Our responsibility is to clear and hold space for what we are manifesting, which is rarely a person or money. We may have issues or past experiences with people that need to be cleared or let go of for our best interest and to move forward.

I am posting this article at this time since we are in the very last of the Balsamic Moon and getting ready for a New Moon partial Solar Eclipse (a powerful one). Whatever of the past we can let go of between now and then will serve us much more greatly than we can at this time imagine. Do the work, do your work, it serves your highest good.

Otherwise, a general good day for line cutting is a Tijax day on the calendar Maya. It is also a practice that is well served on the last quarter lunar phase in preparation for the new cycle. Set yourself free.

Love and light. See you on the other side of the Eclipse!

Powerful Transformational Eclipse Coming October 23, 2014

Written by Sherrie Locke on 1 Ajpu and 8 Kej, October 2014.

This week will be intense courtesy of the overlapping energies, with a solar eclipse on top.

Blog photo-2

The past weekend was grounding and a bit less intense than the previous weeks since the Equinox. Rather like the calm before the next eclipse. The obvious theme…how can you bring more harmony into your life?

Lots of things are moving. The Pluto/Uranus square is still intensely active, internal battles are being fought, even though we may not know yet “why” or in what context all this will all play out. Do not assume you know how all this will manifest just yet. Life changing events are happening.

The overall theme with the 2-1/2 year transit (know your relationships and your own motivations) is coming into the last six-month run, and we will have a much clearer view by late April to early May of 2015, so be patient and observe. What do you understand about yourself that was hidden from your view two years ago? How have your relationships shifted? Really exciting relationship stuff coming both in your personal life and in business. *Positive Mojo.

Solar eclipses always occur on the new moon. This coming lunar phase kicks off the Scorpionic energies, so there will be further plumbing of the depths as three planets move into Scorpio on the day of the partial solar eclipse. The eclipse occurs at zero degrees Scorpio (in Western astrology) 15 minutes, which translates to 5:57 PM for the East coast of the US, 2:57 PM Pacific time, and at 4:57PM for us here in Guatemala. Visible here and many other parts of North America. Here’s a link…

Solar Eclipse October 2014

Be sure to brush up on how to view a solar eclipse (this one is a partial). I have welding goggles, which are perfect. You can look up the water technique on the Internet. Don’t try to look at it directly (sometimes this surprises me that I need to remind people of this).

Remember, The lunar eclipse changes us INternally. It has been all about inner shifting and transformation. Look back at the last two weeks or back to the last Equinox. What is shifting? What has shifted? Read my previous 70 posts on related subjects.

Now for the coup de grâce, a super powerful partial solar eclipse.

Remember, The solar eclipse changes the EXternal and the way we are perceived in the world. Time to out your new found self to the world! Hope that works out well for all of us.

At the time I am posting this article we are in the balsamic phase of the moon, still letting go of what no longer serves us. Let it GO! Don’t worry! If you let go of something that is meant to be, it will clear the current existing energy pattern and the reconnection will be cleaner and stronger. So if you have anything pending, finish it once and for all so you can get with the new energies. Let me know if you would like me to write an article on this subject.

Also remember, in the Northern Hemisphere we are in the overall element of WATER (Air for those of you down south of the equator), which will shift to EARTH element on the Solstice in December (FIRE for those of you in the southern regions). This is relevant to the current eclipse cycle.

Recap of the Current Cycle

On September 22/23, 2014 (read my Mabon article), we changed elements with the Equinox. A day later on the 24th of September we had a very powerful new moon. Mercury went retrograde on October 4th, followed by a powerful Total Lunar Eclipse on October 8th. Enter the “wormhole” or what we like to call the “sideways elevator.” This is where we are now. Thursday is the partial solar eclipse, and the sun enters Scorpio (in Western astrology) at zero degrees Scorpio 15 minutes, which will make the next two weeks or so interesting and guaranteed to be life changing. Choose ye well!

Zip, Boom, Bang! Transformation Station!

Breathe deeply and open your heart, be fearless and present.

Blessings!

~SL, 2014

Note to my readers: I have been traveling and also spending focused time on the current energies and transformation. I will get back to my regular Monday and Thursday posts soon.

Thanks!
Mitakuye Oyasin!
