Happy October!
 

It's hard to believe it's October already!  After a relatively slow and dreamy summer, September was a bit of a reality check. It turned into a whirlwind month guided by rare planetary alignments, an eclipse season, two new moons, Mercury Retrograde, the Autumn Equinox, and Michaelmas - whew!  We trust you're navigating all of the current changes with as much ease and grace as possible, enjoying the rare beauty of nature as it transforms this time of year.

Many blessings for the month to come!  
What's New!

Gene Keys Workshops

Having completed a whole series of workshops on the Activation Sequence, Venus Sequence, and Pearl Sequence, I now feel confident to spread my wings further afield and so I am willing to go anywhere to spread the profound message of the Gene Keys. If you have any interest in me coming to a particular location to do workshops, please get in touch through descendingdove@gmail.com

Calgary
I will be returning to Calgary to host another introductory Gene Key talk on Friday, September 30th, as well as completing the Golden Path with a full-day Pearl Sequence workshop on Saturday October 1st. I will also be available for one-on-one individual Gene Key Sessions on Sunday, October 2nd. Please contact me through descendingdove@gmail.com or via Janis Kirker at gratefulwaters@gmail.com for further details. Please feel free to pass this info on to anyone who might be interested. 

Raven's Ridge Ceremonies

This year's Autumn Equinox marked the 2nd anniversary of ceremonies at Harry Kuebler's Sanctuary in the Highlands, lovingly known as Raven's Ridge. These 2 cycles of ceremonies, held at the equinoxes and solstices of each year, have laid a powerful foundation for future ceremonies on the land.  With the winds of change all around us, September felt like a good time to meet with Harry to see what new possibilities we can co-create with Spirit in the coming months.  Stay tuned for new forms of ceremonies coming to Raven's Ridge soon.      

Quest for The Golden Hinde Pilgrimage

We have had great interest shown in our planned sacred journey into the heartland of our magical Vancouver Island. More details will come shortly, but do let us know if you are interested in joining us next year-  August 21st-26th, 2017. Here is a link to last month's Newsletter article outlining the trip. 
September - Wow!  What a month!
by Peter Tongue

I was really looking forward to September as I knew it contained some very powerful planetary alignments as well as infusions of high frequency energy being made available to us. What I hadn’t realized was how challenging it was going to be. More like a Shakespearean Soap Opera with every aspect of the human condition coming out: drama, tragedy, death, comedy, enlightenment - the whole gamut! So, as much of the month was spent under Mercury Retrograde, let’s reflect upon what took place and the forces behind all of the major events.

Going back to August 29th when this all began - Mercury was at 29 degrees of Virgo, in its own sign. This is the completion degree, the very last degree in the sign. This meant we were to have brought all of our old thought forms and beliefs to completion just in time for the shift into September and these powerful energies to launch us into our future. However, on that day Mercury turned retrograde and started moving backwards through Virgo. This provided us with the opportunity to review these old thought patterns and see what we had missed. A T-square between Neptune and Saturn with the Sun and Moon over the week following the New Moon provided for something to be revealed to us to help us bring those old thoughts and beliefs to completion.
The New Moon on September 1st was also a Solar Eclipse. It was an Annular Eclipse, which means the precise positioning of the Sun and Moon left an aura, a ring of fire around the Moon, as it didn’t quite fully erase the Sun - a spectacular sight, but not visible in the western world. This Eclipse on the New Moon was at 9 degrees of Virgo, and exactly 19 years previously, there was a Solar Eclipse at the same degree of Virgo - the night that Princess Diana died! That gave me goosebumps as the media, for some reason, made headline news of it locally, perhaps because her son Prince William, his wife Kate, and their children were about to arrive in Victoria later in the month. No coincidence as 19 years should bring some form of completion or closure to that horrendous event, which has remained unresolved for people. Will the truth of what really happened be revealed shortly?

During this time, we were also moving through the four Gene Keys which represent the Ring of Alchemy as the Sun illuminated each one consecutively beginning with the 40th at the beginning of the month, moving through the 64th, 47th and 6th completing on the Equinox on September 22nd. This 3-week opportunity was to transmute all of the shadow frequencies that were arising into the light. This is best done by witnessing from a neutral position whatever is coming up for ourselves and others, letting the shadows simply dissolve away through non-attachment. This process releases much of the denser energy that we carry around with us.
The first wave of beneficial energy came in as Jupiter moved into Libra through the 9th to 11th period of September, converting the earthy denser energies of Virgo into the much lighter air frequencies of Libra. This was the initial wave of 3 impulses coming in through the course of the month. I am indebted to Starwalker and Sandra Walter for this important information.

We then experienced the 2nd Eclipse of the month, a partial Lunar Eclipse on September 16th at 24 degrees of Pisces with the Sun still in Virgo and a T-square to Mars in Sagittarius. This alignment created a potential for significant volatility and conflict, particularly between the masculine and feminine energies within ourselves and in our relationships. All of this conflicting energy had a positive intention at its root, which was to help us heal all of the old wounds in preparation for what is to come.

This leads us into the fall Equinox and the second wave of energy - A Gateway opening for a new level of Consciousness to emerge as the Sun and Earth move into this harmonious, balanced interaction with each other. The equinox signals the movement of the Sun from Virgo into Libra, but also the shift in the seasons as we begin our descent into winter. On this day, the light and dark are exactly equal, 12 hours each, the sun rising just after 7am and setting just after 7pm on the west coast. I watched both as now the darkness takes over, and we move into our journey of seeking the light inwardly over the winter months.
This is also a time of balance, when we connect Mother Earth and Father Sun through sacred ceremony. Zia and I engaged in ceremony at different locations within our Victoria Landscape Zodiac, including sites in Leo, Virgo, Libra and Scorpio, the four signs deeply involved in this transition. We did our major ceremony at the Hub of the Zodiac, connecting into other members of our tribe performing ceremony in other parts of the planetary landscape, including Salt Spring Island, France, and England - revisiting ancient sacred sites whose crystalline grid ley lines are being re-activated and reconnected. I am grateful to Unity Grace and her family tribe who are playing a very important role in this process during this time.

Jupiter continued to play an important expansive role through the last week of September as the 3rd powerful wave of energy came in. It was predicted to be the most powerful influx of Crystalline Divine Love to impact the planet for many years. An opportunity for powerful transformation and a transition into a New World, from within ourselves and the collective.

September 29th is always an important date in my calendar as it is Michaelmas Day, the day Archangel Michael is honored in the Christian Church. It has always proved to be a day of great clearing of the old energies and bringing in the new, and this year coincides with the closing of this powerful energetic gateway.
That brings us to the last day of September, which is the second New Moon in the month at 8 degrees of Libra with the Sun, Moon, and Jupiter conjunct. A really positive and powerful conclusion to a month that has provided all sorts of challenges for us. This is a day to set new intentions for ourselves as we navigate our way through letting go of the old and birthing the new.

The energies should lighten up as we move through the month of October and I hope you have found this explanation of the month of September helpful in understanding your own journey as you reflect upon what has happened in your life during this time. We are all being faced with our deepest unresolved issues - to be recognized, healed, and set free so that we can step up into the next level of consciousness awaiting us.
