Using a documentary about the reciprocal relationship between the Mofu people of Cameroon and the Jaglavak ant as a starting point, guest writer Steve Guettermann discusses “sacred reciprocity.” That is, spoken and honest prayerful intent, offered from a place of gratitude and abundance (rather than “behaving to have”), even during a Dark Night of the Soul.
February arrives at the depth of winter in most of the Northern Hemisphere, when we live in the shadow of cold, rain and snow. Within February’s first few days lies one of the four high holidays — or sabbats — of the pagan calendar, called Imbolc in Celtic times; one of the four “cross-quarter days.”
Sunday, Mercury formed a conjunction to Pluto in Capricorn. Two months ago, prior to Mercury retrograde, I suggested that the most obvious symbolism in the retrograde process involved a near-conjunction between the two points. Then Mercury backed off, and crossed back in to Sagittarius, where it made a near-conjunction to the Galactic Core, and then went direct.
The sheer number of people who came out; the fact that marches took place all over the United States and even the world; the diversity and inter-generationality present; the wildly creative and powerful signs; and the fact that no arrests were made the entire day in connection to the March are all indications that something of great historical significance took place.
In Portland, Maine, we had an estimated 10,000 marchers (another 10,000 marched in the state’s capitol), stretching almost an entire mile down Congress Street. Energy and friendly vibes were high; signs were mostly positive and inclusive with some ‘anti-Trump’ thrown in. Amanda Painter shares some of her 300+ photos from the day.
