Full moon over Montcayo, Zaragosa, Spain, 10/18
I wrote most of this news while on the road from Madrid to Zaragoza, Spain, on Friday, the day of the full moon, and full lunar eclipse.It was the full moon of Aries in relation to the sun in Libra.

I had hoped to send this out to you during that day,
But, my hosts had other plans.
They took me immediately to the sacred mountain of the region, Montcayo, where we engaged in ceremony with the spirit of the land, and those of the ancestors of the region, as well as bear witness to the lunar eclipse. 
It was, and has been, a powerful cycle of potential and transformation for many, even as many of you have reported to me during this time. It is a time of opportunity with emotions, relationships, communion, and communication. It is a time pressing us to look our needs, wants, and visions vs. 'others' in our lives.The energies of this recent full moon eclipse, coupled with what is and has been transpiring, through the coming solar eclipse Nov 3, is a powerful time to enter mindful and conscientious work within your self, and in your relationship to others.
Quoting from Annie Heese and Adam Banks of ''
The Aries-Libra polarity is a relationship axis, where Aries represents "self" and Libra represents "other". Where Aries is about self-assertion, Libra is about compromise. The energy of the Libra Sun is the awareness of the need for relationships and all that comes with maintaining them--compromising, negotiating, graciousness, and balancing. The Aries Moon, on the other hand, is self-assertive, leading, and personally courageous. This Full Moon urges us to strike a balance between meeting our personal needs and tending to the needs of a significant other, and between independence or autonomy and dependence or companionability.
The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse illuminates the conflict between "me" and "you", and between autonomy and sharing.
There is much more to share at:
These inter-relationships continue through the coming weeks, highlighted by a new mercury retrograde, which can distill the impact of these energies more than usual. And, as we approach a new moon and solar eclipse on Sunday, Nov 3, with the sun in Scorpio (during our next practice, Awakening Our Luminous Being,) more is yet to be revealed.
Lunar eclipses ....bring endings and/or a culmination of existing conditions. Solar eclipses are more likely to bring new beginnings--(Leslie Hale,
The lunar eclipse was followed by Orionid meteor showers, and a number of other potent astrological events are occurring right through next weeks's solar event.
From another trusted resource:
However, on a more Esoteric level, this is a direct (albeit unconscious) response to the evolution of consciousness. On an unconscious, yet profound level, we all sense significant changes in the energies of our collective consciousness; and for some of us this provokes primal fear, denial and rage. The great influx of Light continues to Illuminate stagnate darkness and decay, and for many this is unacceptable. There is much resistance to change, while holding on to remnants of the past; control, domination, patriarchal, and Caucasian.
As Lunar Eclipses tend to heighten unconscious reactions and intensify emotions, the opportunity for compromise may lose its way, given the desire to win at all costs.
The Sabian Symbol for the Sun at the FULL MOON ECLIPSE on October 18, 2013:(LIBRA 26) AN EAGLE AND A LARGE WHITE DOVE CHANGE INTO EACH OTHER
[Keynote: The interaction of the spiritual Will and of the Love principle when critical needs arise.]
Consciousness operates beyond duality, because the polarized energies of the Soul (or Spirit), Will and Love, though ever distinct, work for a single purpose.(Rudyar)
The Sabian Symbol for the MOON at the FULL MOON ECLIPSE on October 18, 2013:(ARIES 26) A MAN POSSESSED BY MORE GIFTS THAN HE CAN HOLD
[Keynote: Obsession by potentiality.]
This all points to this time we are in, this cycle of evolution and growth, potentialities, and choices we can make.
It is a time of great empowerment.
...we disperse our knowledge and come to a point when we need to sort out what works for us--and what doesn't--in preparation for next week's New Moon  --
And regarding these things transpiring, now, through the new moon/Solar eclipse in conjunction with Saturn, Nov 3,it is a time of, 
--from Marina Partridge,
 “Inventive mind, intuition and wisdom, a grasp for the inner nature of one’s fellow man. The gift of successful investigation of the hidden side of things. A deeply religious nature connected with mystical and theosophical interests.” 
“Whatever was seeded between mid November 2012 and mid February is about to slowly bloom between now and October. The full consequences of our actions should be apparent by the November 3 Solar Eclipse.”
....a prototype of things to come...  From 1 – 3 November, Saturn shows us a glimpse of something much larger brewing in the collective. So now we are here at the point of the grand unveiling.
...he makes us face the consequences of our actions.
The Earth’s Shadow, falling upon the “Grace of the moon,", and then the moon's upon the Sun, highlights and reveals the deeper wisdom awaiting within us.

It is a powerful time to step into your power, to look for communion with others in your life and community, find the perfect place of unity, balance, harmony, with  others and self.It is a perfect time and place for hearing the voices of others in collaboration with your own spirit, power, and truth…and choices.
To heighten your own qualities of knowing and discernment.
Here, in Spain, the Earth has been speaking very loud. But, her voice is much like everywhere.Everywhere, she says, the Earth is precious.

Do not imagine you cannot awaken without harmonizing with her fields of life, and of light, as well as that of the Cosmos around us.For you are part of her, and it.
They are one with each other.
We are, all, part of each other.Even if only a temporary resident, you are part of the Earth, as well.  And, you deserve to come into harmonious resonance with her.
By doing so, you do enter harmony with All Life.
For, again, we are all, part of each other.
She is a powerful tool to remind us of who we are, what we bring, and the resources at hand, how to connect, revere, enter, play and sing in this resonant field of beauteous Creation.

Choose to do so.
Look for places you can rest in her field of energy, of beauty and harmony….  She will help bring us into our own beauty and harmonious being.

It is by choosing to step outside of her realms that we, individually, and culturally, have come into entanglement.By imagining that we are more than, or less than her; that we have a better way of growth, of defining beauty and understanding, of living by the principles of Creation than manifest through her kingdoms; by stepping out of bounds from her Palace of Creation, we have entered a dissonance, a disharmonious union with other principles at play in the Universe. We all know that we have come close to the precipice of destruction, of destroying the equilibrium and balance of the natural kingdoms and ways of the Earth.
(image: )

What has made us imagine this?And while we disclaim the powers of the great corporations, how many of us are not still using 'their' machines, technology, power systems, financial systems, and so much more, which we might recognize are contributing to these conditions? Thus, even if ‘passively,’ we are engaged in the continual imbalance, if not annihilation, of the Earth, and her systems of being.  (They are, in reality, but a reflection of our inner stability, balance, and harmonious way of being.)

It is something for us to think about; to look at how to more fully cherish her, and each other, in every choice of our lives, every thought and action.  But one step at a time, one choice, one thought, one action.

When we step outside onto the Earth, into the places of her natural beauty and power, IT IS A VIBRATIONAL STATE, which helps us ENTRAIN to a similar state of harmonious resonance.

(For more on this, read some of our last messages from the Earth, earlier articles about earth wisdom and resonance, some with easy meditative practices, and mp3 downloads)
There is an elemental grace which the Earth exudes. We have the power to step into it. We have the elemental right and responsibility to do so. It is inherent within us. The Elemental Grace and Wisdom of our Divine Origins.It is our Birth Right.
