This Spectral Serpent Moon invites
the Questions and Contemplations:
What in my life no longer serves me and how can I release it?
Am I seeing life in terms of the prismatic range of possibility?
Is my identity or are my concepts too fixed to allow new perceptions?
What gifts have I to share that can assist others in transforming their lives?
What is my role in assisting in the Healing of Earth and All her Creatures?
How am I or Can I be a Catalyst for Transformation and A Beacon of Hope?
Am I walking in Balance and Walking in Truth? Am I able to both Give and Receive Love and Dance Skillfully with Paradox and in the ever-fluctuating River of Life?
Reflect on the question/s that feel most important
to you and, listening deeply for an answer, open to the
many ways in which an insight could be revealed.....
Communication with and without Words
Through finding new and expansive ways to live and love we transform ourselves and create the gold of our lives. We sing our Soul Song, communicating deeply from our hearts in ways that not only enrich us, but also enrich the lives of all that we touch. This time invites us to look at the ways in which we communicate and this includes first with and within ourselves.
Such heartfelt communication carries great and gentle power that can heal and transform.
Do we listen deeply enough to hear what is being said and also what is not being said yet felt and 'heard' between the lines? Do we listen to and hear the Silent whisperings of our hearts and souls? Can we feel love and compassion for ourselves through the fires of transformation that extends to others? Do we recognize the Healing Power of Love and the experiences that Unite rather than Divide us? Can we feel that flow of Divinity through the Universal Waters of the Collective Unconscious and recognize/remember our mythic and mystical connection to the Cosmos and to each other?
May 3rd is the Full Moon in Scorpio/Taurus that marks the Buddhist Festival of Wesak - which takes place each year when the Sun is in Taurus and the Moon is in Scorpio. It is seen as a time to stimulate the spirit of Love, Community, and Good Will on Earth and to evoke the Energies of Enlightenment.
Each year at the time of Wesak, two great streams of energy, one focussed through the Buddha (Light/Wisdom) and the other through the Christ (Love) are fused and blended.
May is the month of the Great Cosmic Mother
Keynote of Taurus in Esoteric Astrology is:
"I see and when the eye is opened, all is Light"
Keynote of Scorpio:
"Warrior am I and from the battle, I emerge triumphant."
How do we Show up for Life as Fully Embodied agents of Light and Love. in the all embracing ways that honor our Essence Selves and all of Humanity?

The Moon in Relationship to this Time
We are presently in a Red Solar Moon year according to the Dreamspell 13 Moon Calendar. Red Moon is the 9th of 20 Solar Seals and Solar is the 9th of 13 Tones.
This year began on July 26, 2014.
"Nine is the emblem of matter which, while changing and in constant flux, yet retains its identity and resists complete destruction. This is manifest in the strange phenomenon of 9 remaining 9 in its power no matter by what number it is multiplied. It eternally reproduces itself. It is the master vibratory power governing human evolution" ~Corinne Heline, the Sacred Science of Numbers
A focus of this year has been. is, and will be Deep healing on all levels and integrating the masculine and feminine aspects within ourselves. The energy of the Divine Feminine is Reborn within us and through our inner Union and Reunion The Serpent find its wings and takes magical flight.. On the website Loominosity you'll find a more detailed article on the Red Moon Year by hovering over the Header Dreamspell and clicking on Red Solar Moon Year.
The last day of the previous Moon, the Planetary Dog Moon, that ended May 1st, contained the energy of Red Solar Moon (Kin 9) as Heart Bridge. On May 2nd, the first day of this current Spectral Moon, Red Electric Moon graces the Dreampell Imaginal Position (Kin 29). On the final day of this Moon, May 29th, Red Solar Moon (Kin 9) shows up again, this time in the position of New Earth Resonance (Root) position where we have the opportunity to most tangibly create new story in our lives. Thus Red Moon has occupied all 3 of the Trinity of Kin positions in ways that create a special flow from Moon 10 to Moon 11 and that 'bookend' this Spectral Serpent Moon of Liberation.
This feels like powerful Red Moon "weaving in flow", joining together Imaginal-(Crown)-Being and Phenomenal-(Root)-Doing Realms via the Deeply Experienced Resonance of the Heart. You may wish to revisit the Special Edition Liberating Heart Seeds Issue and Planetary Dog Moon 10.
[Please find an explanation of the Trinity of Kin (the weaving of Dreamspell and Mayan Longcount) HERE and also at Loominosity.]
Red Moon is related to Universal Water, Flow, Fluidity and Adaptability. She is the Cosmic Seed of Awakened Awareness that gradually opens the third eye. She/he is both Beacon and Receiver alight through her growing connection to the Divine and she is becoming adept at balancing giving and receiving in her life She understands the importance of both and the necessity of dancing in the ever fluctuating rivers of life.

Spectral as 11th Tone and
its connection to the Serpent
Spectral is the 11th tone in the Dreamspell System. It is said to be a tone of dissonance and also of liberation. 11 is a master number and can be viewed as a doorway or portal to another place. 11 might also be envisioned as the two pillars on the tree of life; the two pillars, one light, one dark, that when embraced in balance and equanimity create the Middle Way, the Path of High Priestess and our personal connection with the Divine. The 11 might also be depicted as the 2 snake like energies that intertwine as the forces of Shiva and Shakti making their way from Heaven to Earth and Earth to Heaven up and down our spines. 11 is also the Number of Blue Monkey, the 11th Solar Tribe - the Divine Child/Magician
And what of the Serpent? Red Serpent (also known as the Serpent Initiate) is the 5th Mayan Archetype (aka Solar Seal). Red Serpent represents our Primal Instinctual life Force and also our conscious embracing of Body Wisdom and our Bodies as Temple and Gateways to the Divine. As an Ancient Story, Red Serpent has had survival issues of all kinds. Yet the more conscious she/he becomes, the keyword Survive is Replaced with THRIVE.
The Serpent is also linked with Adam and Eve and the Garden of Eden story, as well as to Lilith, the primal energy of the Cosmic Feminine. These two stories side by side (like the 11) seem to mark the point at which the masculine and feminine were experienced as polarizing energies in ways that separate us from ourselves and each other. Judgment of all kinds shadowed Acceptance and the full embracing of our Divine/Human natures. Arriving at the 11 Door is an opportunity to look more deeply and without judgment at our lives and how we choose to create them. It is an opportunity to establish a deeper connection to the essence of our being and to our innate Divinity.
Red Serpent and Red Moon may well resonate with an evolution of Lilith who is both praised and reviled, lauded and excluded - and an 'is as it is' authentic expression of essence and the light and shadow within the self, symbol of virgin-whore, inherited and heirloom seed, God Seed, that awakens the Universal Implications and Larger Story of which our Personal Story is a part. Read a dramatic dialogue "Lilith Speaks" by Kelley Hunter.
11 and 5 have an interesting connection in Christianity: 11 is the number that the name Jesus vibrates to. Christ vibrates to 5. Thus the life of Master Jesus is one example of a shift in vibration of an initiate on the path, signaling an evolution of and for humanity as we fully embrace our divine human nature in the ways that are right and resonant and in right timing for each one of us.
In addition the 11 and 5 combine to create 16, the number of Yellow Warrior (CIB) , 16th Solar Seal and symbolic of the energy of Courage, Questioning, and becoming an Agent of Cosmic Forces. Ariel Spilsbury refers to Yellow Warrior as Galactic Guide and Mystic Ferryman one who is a conduit for cosmic consciousness. CIB also represents the next Octave of Red Moon (from 9 - 16)
"CIB is the Grace of the descent of the Dove, emboding the mystic gift of TRUST in Direct Guidance. Through TRUST, you journey to the place of "no time" and limitless light. There you will undergo the transformations to embody solar heart and mind. Cib's colors are indigo and gold, combining the limitlessness of the night sky with the freedom of the daytime sun"
Ariel Spilsbury the Mayan Oracle
