Each month close to the full moon on The Wirral I hold a Moon Circle to share the ancient teachings of the moon; we gather together in a spirit of love and community. Since beginning my circle, other circles have been created in the UK and abroad joining us together in the old ways of honouring the moon.
What an exciting month ahead we have with very potent astrology filling the skies.
The moon is full on August 7th in the sign of Aquarius. We are now just emerging into the age of Aquarius, we are at the very threshold of the new beginning for the Earth. The sign of Aquarius is ruled by the element of air and it is known as the water bearer and its essence is all about bringing completely new ways of thinking into the world. Those born under the sign of Aquarius are the innovators for the planet.
So we can see that this full moon asks us if we want to stay stuck in the ways of the past or do we wish to move forward into something brand-new and if we can embrace completely new ways of thinking we then will have indeed stepped into the age of Aquarius.
In this work which we do we combine the wisdom of ancient times with a modern outlook to create something completely new. Religions will eventually pass away and there will be a new religion for the Earth and we are the ones who are bringing this to pass. This new religion is a blend of the wisdom of the Earth and the most sacred holy vibrations when we connect to the divine, the source of all.
The Earth is our church, it is our Temple and many of you will have already said this and when you go and commune with nature you feel the greatest peace as you connect to all things. As you know the Earth has consciousness and everything within it has the ability to speak to us and bring us teachings. It is also the most sacred place and if we can lift ourselves onto the right level of awareness we can have access to a greater vision.
Religions will eventually disappear for even though the core teachings are always good and true much has been distorted due to the interference of human nature. As some of you know I have not only a great passion for nature but I also have a great devotion for the essence of Hinduism for it brings bhakti which is devotion and that devotion is all about the opening of the heart and a connection to something greater than ourselves. At the very heart of the vibration of Hinduism there is something so very sacred that you can almost touch, the peace and divinity within it.
Many of you will use the most beautiful chants of mother Earth but try adding a Hindu chant and you will understand what I am saying. I am not asking you to follow that way only to take from these words the very essence of that path which I can only describe as a feeling of such sacredness and holiness that it brings you in contact with the unlimited consciousness of creation.
So we are now at the beginning of a new path and it is on time for last week the energies of the Earth were upgraded creating a great opening in the connection between us and the planet. Now we begin completely and you are embracing your love and passion for this blessed Earth of ours and at the same time imbuing that passion with something so divine which comes from deep within you.
The teachings from this month’s aquarian full moon bring a new beginning, a new energy as we acknowledge that we now have indeed stepped into a new time.
Here are the teachings for this month’s full moon:
Draw down the light of Sirius filling up with this Starlight and radiating it around you.
We use the word church or Temple to denote a place where we come together to honour the divine so let us call our new meeting point an Earth Temple and you are now going to be introduced to this very brand new sacred space.
Take yourself deep into the very heart of nature, to a place where people have not tread for a very long time so the energy is pure and clear. You see before you a round Temple made of wood. Be very aware of all the symbolism here. A round shape carries the essence of Infinity and in the future our places of connecting will always be round or dome shaped. The sign of Aquarius carries the element of air and air is the same element as wood and wood is the element of new beginnings just like the sap which rises up the tree in springtime.
You see that within this building there are huge arch shaped windows covering the whole circular wall and these windows are made of the purest crystal. You enter inside and immediately you are met with a brand-new energy which you have never felt before and as you watch the sun shine rainbows of light through the crystal windows you find yourself immersed in beautiful crystalline rainbow light so that you are wearing a gown of rainbow crystal.
In the very centre of the Temple is an altar, it too is made of wood with carvings of nature on the outside of it and it has the deepest green ivy draped all around. Upon the altar is a golden chalice made from a golden crocus flower and it is filled with golden nectar. Wildflowers sit in a vase made from a shell inlaid with mother of Pearl. The altar is the meeting place of all the shafts of rainbow light which enter through the Windows so that the whole altar is lit up with the most radiant light.
This Earth Temple is not only a place of a ceremony; it is also a place of healing and a place to gather to share from the heart with joy and laughter. Within this sacred place there are fountains of water, a crystal bed, even a fireplace so that all the elements are contained within it. Upon the fire can be brewed healing herbal teas from the herbs which are preserved on shelves nearby. There are soft cushions to sit upon, acorn cups to drink from and sweet honey cakes to be enjoyed along with the companionship from those who also enter this place.
As you explore this Earth Temple dressed in your crystal rainbow gown you feel the newness all around enter into your being and you know that you will take that newness with you after you leave this place and it will flow through every part of your life and your work.
You enjoy being here so much and you can do whatever you wish, you may wish to pray, to be healed, to go outside and adorn yourself with flowers and bring those flowers inside bringing the joy of them with you or you may wish to sit by the fire and be soothed with a healing brew and honey cake.
The animals too are free to enter here for the door is always open for this is a meeting place of heaven and Earth, a place to commune with all the things of the Earth and all the things of the cosmos. It is a place to meet all the nature spirits who look after the plant world and the animals who bring their medicine, the goddesses and gods and the great cosmic teachers who communicate with us from the highest realms of spirit and from other planets too. So step into this newness and initiate the very beginning of this sacred path of the union of heaven and Earth.
You are to return to the Earth Temple and there you will find a teacher waiting for you and this teacher will bring you wisdom, knowledge of this new beginning and knowledge of the Earth and of the heavens. You will receive much understanding from them.
You are to enter the Temple as the moon is full in the sign of Aquarius and the moonlight will shine through the crystal windows filling the whole space with it sacred light. The Temple will be lit up with the radiant white light and you are to lie down upon the crystal bed and allow the moonlight to heal you. From the moment you entered this sacred space everything now changes and is different and so when the moonlight enters the Temple you will understand more than ever how it has consciousness and that light will speak to you and guide you and it will take form before you. As you lie upon the crystal bed to receive the healing from the moonlight you will be caressed by its healing words and soothing light and from this moment your heart will be filled with a much greater understanding of how every single thing is filled with the consciousness of the divine and that we are not separate from anything else at all.
Enjoy these new beginnings and enjoy the new light during this month of August for we have no choice now but to step forward into new times.
With love Margaret

If you would like to begin a moon circle in your area then I will be happy to pass on information to help you to do this. Although you can run a circle any way you want I send out teachings to all the moon circle teachers each month before the full moon and they can use these if they wish. Your contact details can also be added to the contacts page on the website.
