Edition 13 - Cosmic Turtle Moon of Presence



what does it mean?



"Your hand opens and closes, opens and closes. If it were always a fist or always stretched open, you would be paralyzed. Your deepest presence is in every small contracting and expanding, the two as beautifully balanced and coordinated as birds' wings."

13 Original Clanmothers by Jamie Sams

Clanmother 13: Becomes Her Vision



"Becomes her Vision teaches us that we are all and nothingness and that all worlds exist inside us as well as outside us. This clanmother tells us that every time we transform, becoming our visions, we are then shown a new vision and a more expansive point of view. The spiral of evolving spirit continues to take us from one level of understanding to the next Medicine Wheel of experience and is eternal. For this reason, Becomes her Vision is also the Guardian of Personal Myth"


"As we make the choices that alter the course of how we manifest our dreams, we express our individualities. This uniqueness is part of the Great Mystery's plan for wholeness. When every individual walks the earth as a realized dream of his/her spiritual and human potential, the Whirling Rainbow Dream of world peace and spiritual illumination will be complete"


"Self of myself, you are now ready to become the truth. All of your sisters are other reflections of yourself. The smoke-filled illusions that you are separate has now been shattered. Look inside your being and share with me what you perceive, by acknowledging that we are all one." 

"As the Keeper of Spirit Emerging into Form, she teaches us how to bring the truth of unlimited Spiritual Essences into our human bodies, accessing our unified, unlimited potential to create a dream that all living things can share" 


Fun and Deeply Meaningful Reading Suggestions for this Moon
(for children of all ages and for anyone at anytime at all)
Wings Within by Franklin Hill, Ph.D

Life in the cove is always changing and Myrtle wants to change, too. She is tired of being a plain old sea turtle, and longs to have big beautiful butterfly wings, so she can fly like her best friend Anew.

One brave Little Girl seeks the wisdom of the ancient Old Turtle, who sees that the people's Truth is not a whole truth, but broken. Old Turtle shows the girl the missing part of the Truth, & the Little Girl returns with it to her people.


Jonathon Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach


This is the story for people who follow their hearts and make their own rules...people who get special pleasure out of doing something well, even if only for themselves...people who know there's more to this living than meets the eye: they'll be right there with Jonathan, flying higher and faster than they ever dreamed.


 The Story of Love and Truth by Terah Cox


An inspiring love story for ourselves, each other and the world. Love and Truth come alive as poignant and compelling characters in this timeless fable. A beautifully woven tale about the urge for togetherness pressed up against the longing for purpose...a search for the things we have often willingly left behind...a tribute to the transformative power of compassion, the uncommon possibility of Two...and an inspiring forecast of all we might yet become as we begin to heal the disconnect between what we love and how we journey through the world.



All of the above are real TREASURES in my library. I never tire of reading them and am uniquely inspired by each one.


Wonderful Videos for this Time and all Time!



 Whale Rider 


A small Maori village faces a crisis when the heir to the leadership of the Ngati Konohi dies at birth and is survived only by his twin sister, Pai. Although disregarded by her grandfather and shunned by the village people, twelve-year-old Pai remains certain of her calling and trains herself in the ways and customs of her people. With remarkable grace, Pai finds the strength to challenge her family and embraces a thousand years of tradition in order to fulfill her destiny.

Who is the Cosmic Turtle and How is
She/He related to Presence?


The Cosmic Turtle Moon is the 13th of the 13 Moons in a Dreamspell Cycle. This Moon invokes the Magic of Universal Movement and Destiny as well as signals an opportunity to experience Deep Presence.


Considering the Turtle as Totem for this Moon, I reflect upon the 13 larger sections (scutes) that create many turtle's shells. Native American Tribes have referred to the Turtle shell as a Calendar, for indeed not only does it have 13 primary scutes to reflect the 13 Moons of the Lunar Calendar, the shell also has 28 smaller sections around the perimeter of the shell, one for each day in the 28 day Moon Cycle. And yet the Turtle is One being.



The word Omni-dimensional comes to mind - a spherical premise; mandalic synthesis, a place at which tapping into the quality of existence in each dimension of experience  ultimately births the experience of an expanded awareness and experience of Oneness - a synthesis of all that has been.

Since July 26, 2015 we have experienced 12 28 day Dreamspell Moon Cycles each one expressing its own unique energies and we, as unique beings express and interact within these cycles experiencing them in our own ways...birthing, beginning, challenged and challenging, loving, serving, defining and measuring, radiating, balancing, going within, healing, learning, growing, expanding, contracting, weaving, aligning, shining, dancing, flowing, giving and receiving, questioning, shadowing, catalyzing, transforming, finding purpose and meaning, manifesting, letting go, integrating, crystalizing....

and arriving here and now at the 13th Moon,

The Cosmic Turtle Moon of Presence

In the midst of all the movement, the changing, there is an Essence within that never changes. In our deepest Heart Space we are Present - always. Presence is staying connected to that unchanging Essence. As a current circle of experience stabilizes and completes, we Spiral and take Magical Flight into a new level of experience and find Freedom relative to our present path.

When in touch with our Essence we may feel at one with and a part of something greater - a feeling sense - without having to do - a sense of community without having to cognize the other members of the community. We are at Home within ourselves and simultaneously Inclusive. This is the nature of the Divine Feminine (who also embraces her Divine Masculine aspect). In the arms of great Mother , Gaia, Goddess, Cosmic Turtle, we can Love ourselves and others to wholeness


When in touch with our Essence we become more an observer of life, able to detach from over-identification with any experiences (perceived as good or bad) understanding that it is our Essence underneath that matters most.


 What we do for and in our own personal part of realizing Presence is important to and effects each individual aspect and therefore the totality of our inherent Oneness.

The Cosmic Turtle honors the depths of her Instinctual Wisdom and is open to the Realm of Infinite Possibility. She not only Knows, She Dreams and is linked to the Alchemical Goddess, and the Rainbow through the magical vibration of 13.





Most cultures and sources of animal wisdom consider turtle a symbol of Gaia, of Feminine Wisdom, of Patience, Perseverance, Steadfastness. Endurance, Longevity, Non-Violence, Heightened Senses. Turtle is distinguished from Tortoise because turtle lives either near or in water while tortoise inhabits only land. The land and water connection of Turtle highlights the Yin aspect

attributed by most to turtle.


Turtle carries her home on her back - she is at home wherever she is - home within herself - where creating heaven on earth begins.


 In the Far East, the turtle shell was a symbol of heaven and earth and the turtles magic was thought to help unite heaven and earth within our own lives. The 13th Solar tribe in the Dreamspell system is Red Skywalker also said to be a symbol of seeking to connect heaven and earth by becoming a living pillar of the temple uniting the two; an angelic messenger and journeyer

amazing versions of this song


Both of these Stellar Artists have transitioned from the Earth Plane, yet their Spirits continue to Delight and Inspire






That each of the 13 Scutes on the Turtle Shell is a Portal, an entry into another dimension of reality, to a different place and time, to the center of the Earth, perhaps Deeper within yourself.....


Which one would you enter and where would it take you? Does the Portal that you choose have a number, a name?


Try Setting a Dream Intention if this appeals to you, Day Dream or Night Dream, about something you'd like to discover and see what unfolds as you gaze upon the turtles back.


Create an image and/or a piece of writing about your experience

if this appeals to you...




For those familiar with the 13 Tones of Creation of the Dreamspell System.

Contemplate the placement of the numbers in the Scutes of the Turtle Shell.

Patterns, Symmetry and the Trinity of Kin


(Visit Loominosity for additional information about

weaving Mayan Calendar Counts, the significance, and to find your own signatures and the signatures for any day)



Exploring the Trinity of Kin that draws from both the Dreamspell and Longcount calendars and that utilizes a synthesis of the two has been a rewarding and expanding practice that contains beautiful symmetry.


The Dreamspell calendar is a revised modern version of the more traditional Mayan Longcount. These seem to represent individually the Imaginal Visionary Realm linked with the Crown Chakra (Dreamspell) and the Phenomenal Earth  Realm (Longcount aka New Earth Resonance) connected with the Root Chakra. Together they hold clues about the energy that brings Heaven to Earth. A third Kin, the Ecstatic Realm Heart Bridge is found through combining the 2 - an energy of harmonizing.


Mirroring: A Common Thread Pattern


During the current Red Solar Moon year, on Day 1 of every Moon, the Solar Tribe in the Dreamspell Position (Imaginal Visionary) is repeated on the last Day of the Moon in the 3rd (Phenomenal, Root) New Earth Resonance Position. In all cases they are in the Red-East-Earth-Initiating Family that includes Red Dragon, Red Serpent, Red Moon, Red Skywalker, and Red Earth.


This mirroring seems to suggest that there has been energetic support for and an urging to create "Heaven on Earth" and balance the Yin and Yang, Being and Doing of our lives


.This pattern seems to express through Solar Seal and Color the process of putting our insides outside. highlighting the move toward Authentic Expression in the World of Form that is inherently transformative by its very nature. I'd bet most of us have felt it.


It was exciting to see more tangibly via SolarTribe and Color the energetic support of this Cycle of Becoming and Unfolding that we have been experiencing as I work my own process in the weaving of systems.

On this 13th Cosmic Turtle Moon, in the final Moon of the current years Cycle, it is Red Serpent, 5th Solar Tribe, that is Mirrored on the first and last days

the words express an aspect of the many facets of their combined energies:


A  Potential Scenario



Day 1:


June 27, 2015


Dreamers Bigger Picture Self achieves Stability in Expansion

through attunement to his/her own internal compass and the skilled  responses inherent in organic balance; dancing gracefully in natural cycles


Last Day:


July 24, 2015


Navigators Light Body is a tool for ongoing harmonizing and expansion.

Initiated into the Galactic realm of the One Heart, we inspire and support each other honoring Life as a journey that moves us

beyond what we have known.


Having Endured, we allow Enjoyment to unfold


In JOY we share the many fruits of our bounty


We not only Survive, We Thrive




The first and last days of each moon in this year have had specific color associations as well. The first day always a PALE VIOLET day (Red + Blue + White) , and the last day a CORAL day ( Yellow + Red + Red)


Violet generally has an association with spirituality and with the Crown Chakra. Pale Violet is Violet to which light has been introduced. In the Aura-Soma color care system this is referred to as intense violet and linked with the Ascended Master St Germain and the Violet Flame. St Germain invites us to transmute the negativity of the past. release the desire to be invisible, refine our expression, and to step forth to act as a CATALYST in the world.  



More will be written and posted at Loominosity soon about patterns unfolding - in the Planetary Wizard Year beginning on July 26 2015, a shift in pattern will emerge and on March 1 2016 a more dramatic shift will take place. Until then, visit Loominosity to find additional pages posted under the header  Dreamspell: tools for your ongoing treasure mapping and discovery. Others to follow soon.
