Falling Awake: Fall Equinox and Full Moon

September Full Moon 2018:

When to See the ‘Harvest Moon’ The full moon of September, called the Harvest Moon, will grace the skies Sept. 24, just two days after the autumn equinox. The moon becomes officially full on Sept. 24 at 10:52 p.m. EDT (0252 GMT on Sept. 25), according to NASA’s SkyCal.

Choctaw Nation call this Hash Tek Inhasi, the Courting Moon. I can see how this would bring out a little romance: gets a little bit chilly around here as soon as the Sun goes down…

Although, not exactly equal
Fall equinox 2018: Not as ‘equal’ as you may think | CNN Travel


So why isn’t the equinox exactly equal?

It turns out you actually get a little more daylight than darkness on the equinox, depending on where you are on the planet. How does that happen?

As the US National Weather Service explains, the “nearly” equal hours of day and night are because of the complex way a sunrise is measured and the refraction of sunlight in our atmosphere.

This bending of light rays “causes the sun to appear above the horizon when the actual position of the sun is below the horizon.” The day is a bit longer at higher latitudes than at the equator because it takes the sun longer to rise and set the closer you get to the poles. So on fall equinox, the length of day will vary a little according to where you are:”

“For the truly equal day/night split, you have to wait some days after the official equinox. That’s called the equilux. In 2018, that will happen on September 28.”

Dua Ra Dua Djehuty Dua Aset M Aspolia 

Sun, Mercury, Ceres in Sidereal Virgo 

Tap into Creativity and utilize to Express Cosmic Mind and to Hear Divine Intuition. this will lead to bountiful harvest, as Aspolia is The Seed.

Dua Maat M Sekhmet. Pallas Athena in Sidereal leo.

uh oh. Is this the Warrior Goddess Defending Maat? Standing up for fairness in relationships and partnerships? This is not the time to remain quiet and hope the challenge will go away. Now is the time to practice speaking up, and standing for Maat. You are either Living with Maat, or you are not. There is no grey area on this…..

Dua Juno Dua Sedna (Portal Opening) M Apis

Juno and Sedna Rx in Sidereal Taurus.
I read today that there is even a #yogametoo hashtag: some yoga instructors are actually rapists. This means that our sacred relationships and covenants, marriages have been violated, thoroughly, and with the Rx activity, now is the time for action and healing, which comes with letting go. Speaking and expressing, It is also important to be heard, and criminalizing the survivor will backfire in time. We are going to establish our groundedness and steadfastness in our truth, and we refuse to be silenced, we will not remain silent, not until this trial has ended.  

Dua Heru (Portal Opening) M Tamet Ammon

Uranus Rx in Sidereal Aries

True Leadership  and Victory comes by Observing\  

    Dua Chiron (Portal Opening) PiCot Sahu

Chiron Rx in Sidereal Pisces

This portal opening is pushing us to cleanse and to heal from deep seated emotional wounds, even from past lives or ancestral wounds, which are harder to heal from than physical injuries. As the Cherokee Wisdom Teaches us: “Wash Your Spirit Clean”. Let go of heartache, forgive self and others. Surrender to Spirit and trust the Universe. these are indeed the actions of the Revolutionary that lives within all of us. .

Dua NebtHet (Portal Opening) Dua Sesheta M KuUrKu

Neptune Rx ALMOST Moon in Sidereal Aquarius

NebtHet is the Lady of the House, and represents Light beings or Spirit in a Watery Encasement, a physical exisence. She is symbolized by a vessel of water. And KuUrKu is depicted pouring water, or wisdom and knowledge, from one vessel to another.
What I am sensing now is an overwhelmingly strong and powerful luvibration that can heal all estranged family relations. This is based upon the Mythical Relationship of Heru and NebtHet. Sesheta is there urging us to write out our emotions, get them out of us and out them to good use. Putting things in order also means getting rid of what no longer serves us. Taking out our emotional waste. This process is healing for the writer as well as those that have the good fortune to see, hear or read these experiences. This kind of writing, from an authiic place, is indeed purifying to the heat and mind. It helps us build character and strengthen our personality.

Dua Set M Hupeneius
Mars in Sidereal Capricorn.

No longer Retrograde, now is the time to establish a strong, positive material foundation. Not for conquest or amassing great financial wealth, but so that you can be in the position to take better care of health, and have time to invest to gain greater knowledge of Self. Time to get back to consistent yoga practice, mediation, exercise, time and space for family and loved ones. whatever it takes, because without a strong mind body soul and spirit, you will not be able to enjoy all that wealth you have w=amassed, and there will be no one to share it with either. Taking steps towards your freedom, not further enslavement. 

Dua Asar (Portal Opening) Dua Rephan Geb Dua Vesta
M PiMaere
Pluto Rx, Saturn, Vesta in Sidereal Sagittarius

Nuk Pu Nuk Asar Asar: Expanding, traveling, outgrowing beyond all limitations is the Central Core that keeps us shining bright. Things end and begin again, yet our goal is always the same: to Be Enlightened. 

Dua PiCheus Amun Dua HetHeru M Maat

Jupiter and Venus in Sidereal Libra

Now in addition to the experience of Maat Expansion, we add the Love, Joy and Beauty to the Equation. Balance and Harmony instead of struggle. This could mean that it is no longer a battle, it is an unfoldment, a blossoming. Again, remain seated on Inner Throne, the Great Observer that sees all, and says nothing.

The Equinox is a time of Alignment on a Grand Scale. The axis of the Earth’s Orbit lines up with the Galactic Axis. By aligning with nature, we can align with Maat. Our lives flow because we are in tune with the Divine. If your life is not going the way you want it to, look at it from a different peseoctive, and see how life is flowing in alignment with itself, and your wishes only matter, ir come true, when they are ALIGN WITH THE DIVINE. If you are ignorant of Self, and ignorant of the celestial movements, then, your life will just get bounced around not really moving forward….-

Celestial Update: 11-20-13

Welcome to TODAY!

What;s going on in the Stars the week before the New Moon?

Well Yesterday November 19, according to Earth Sky Oracle,

“And as Chiron heads back into forward motion from its retrograde, much of the therapy, healing work, creative initiatives you’ve been dreaming for the past 5 months will now start to really pay off.” EarthSkyOracle

This is GREAT NEWS!! We will be heading into Sidereal IMHOTEP (Ophiuchus) on November 30! Another Celestial Healer, Everything is l;inning up perfectly for major planetary and universal healing….

You can learn more about
the Sidereal Calendar and Ophiuchus at tchiya.com:
Celestial Wisdom: True Zodiac has 13 Signs.
Is Ophiuchus in your chart?



The Oracle also states for the next couple of days:

“Wed Nov 20:
A gratefully received grand trine forms between Mercury in Libra~harmonious dialogue~to Chiron in Aquarius~the healing power of friendship~to Moon in Gemini~emotional curiosity. This day holds so much promise for supportive teamwork, openness to new viewpoints even changing your point of view, and in general, just a delightfully social day. As the gregarious Moon makes a square to Uranus in Pisces~spontaneous emotional eruptions~be a counselor to someone in need or reach out for support to help you through.

Thu Nov 21:
One possibility today when the Moon conjuncts Jupiter in Gemini,  is that you may have moments of mood swings, and feel like a pendulum swinging from mild mania to deep depression and back again. Just be aware this is an energetic in the collective Field, affecting each of us in various intensities. Use appropriate tools to balance yourself. Visit your favorite bookstore (Gemini’s domain), take a drive with a friend to download the pent up emotion (Gemini loves travel, movement, talk therapy). And with the Moon/Jupiter conjunction in a helpful trine to solution-minded Saturn, and in an opposition to visionary and compassionate Venus in Sagittarius, real solutions and understanding can arise.

Thank You, EarthSkyOracle!



Moon and Jupiter from earthsky.org


            Tuesday, November 19

  • After 9 or 10 this evening, you’ll find the waning gibbous Moon shining inside a huge quadrilateral: Capella to the Moon’s upper left, Aldebaran to the Moon’s upper right, Betelgeuse closer to its lower right, and bright Jupiter far to its lower left.Wednesday, November 20
  • By late evening the waning Moon is up in the east. It’s now part of a long, ragged, roughly horizontal snake. From right to left: Rigel in Orion’s foot in the east-southeast, Orion’s Belt, Betelgeuse, the Moon, Jupiter, Pollux, and above Pollux, Castor.Thursday, November 21
  • Jupiter is the bright “star” upper left of the Moon late this evening. Although they look close together, Jupiter is currently 1,660 times farther away. And Pollux and Castor, to Jupiter’s left and upper left, are 500,000 and 730,000 times farther than Jupiter! (at 34 and 52 light-years, respectively).L

On Earth, this is a great time to fast, to clear out, to make space for what is to come…..to make space for ease and grace. To make space for the wisdom of the next full moon to come….Just remember the cycle of nature: to build up and break down. To bring in and take out. nothing stays the same forever in life, except LIFE!

Stars on the other hand, are actually swirling balls of gas and fire, and they tend to burn out. Perhaps that is why we are on earth, so we can learn how to shine without burning up, or OUT! LOL!

Comet ISON is still in the news….and still visible in our skies!

Love and Light, Tchiya

Diving Fully into this November Full Moon

Before we dive Fully into the Moon:

Hey, How wonderful is it that we have THE LEONIDS METEOR SHOWER as well! I am a traditional Leo (Sidereally, Cancer) so this will be fun! Great Rising to get up and view all of these magical events. AND, we will be able to see COMET ISON!!! 12 days away from peak viewing.

from earthsky.org

The crest of the November 2013 full moon occurs on November 17 at precisely 15:16Universal Time. Translating Universal Time to the local clock time at U.S. time zones, that gives the precise time of the full moon as 10:16 a.m. EST, 9:16 a.m. CST, 8:16 a.m. or 7:16 a.m. For the U.S. West Coast, the moon turns full before sunrise on November 17, a peak time for the Leonid meteors to be flying.


This meteor shower is typically for night owls and early birds. As a rule of thumb, the Leonids intensify after midnight, and the greatest numbers fall just before dawn. If you’re game, try working around the moonlight to catch a Leonid meteor or two in the wee hours before dawn on November 17 or 18. Get up a few to several hours before sunrise, when The moon will be relatively low in the western sky. Sit in the long shadow of a barn or a hedgerow of trees, but leave an otherwise open view of sky.


Even if you don’t spot any meteors in the predawn hours, the planet Jupiter will be blazing high overhead. And Mars will be in front of the constellation Leo, the radiant of the Leonid meteor shower. And don’t forget to bring along your binoculars. Comet ISON – now a binocular object – will be pairing up with the star Spica in the east-southeast sky.

At mid-evening, or around 8 to 9 p.m. in mid-November 2013, look for the planets Jupiter and the Gemini stars, Castor and Pollux, to rise over the eastern horizon.

Moon will be close by…..


In the wee hours after midnight, or 1 to 2 a.m., watch the constellation Leo the Lion and the planet Mars to climb into November’s starry sky.

Comet ISON

Before dawn, use binoculars to see if you can spot Comet ISON near Spica, the brightest star in the constellation Virgo the Maiden. Finally, as darkness begins to give way to dawn, watch the planet Mercury finally climb above the horizon.


Full Moon in Sidereal Taurus, so within the Lakota Sacred Hoop, near my favorite constellations, ORION AND SIRIUS, but that is another story….

Another synchronicity is that the  Full Moon in Sidereal System and Full Moon in Western System are in alignment! ONENESS IN THE ONENESS! Of course, after this, we move into Ophiuchus, the 13th Constellation, and THAT is ANOTHER story!

From Lyn Dalebout, the Sidereal Astrologer at earthsky oracle

Sat Nov 16:
Two exact and clarifying oppositions occur today that will carry over tomorrow with Sunday’s exact Full Moon. Pallas Athene, wise goddess of wisdom, strategy, war, creative intelligence, makes a polarizing opposition to Neptune, planetary ruler of our imaginations and guiding spiritual principles. This aspect is great for brainstorming new solutions and strategies. Pallas Athene is in Leo, individual creativity, while Neptune is in Aquarius, the wisdom of group intelligence that comes out of teamwork. Be willing to clash with others but also truly attempt to see through their eyes. Then the most brilliant of all solutions can arrive.  The Moon in sidereal Aries~emotional awakening, independence meaning depending on yourself~opposes Saturn in Libra~our bonds and commitments to others. You may feel stretched, which is the nature of the opposition aspect, too thin between your needs and the requirements of others.

Sun Nov 17:
Today’s sunrise Full Moon will be spectacular so rise early and get out there (if the skies are clear) for observation, meditation, or just pure reverence. The Sun is in early Scorpio and the Moon is in the early degrees of Taurus. I repeat what I said yesterday with a slight variation: you may be stretched between your need for calm and another’s requirement of unfolding crisis or drama.  Stand tall in your core principles, stay centered in your spinal column, while also flexing and giving support to another.  Mercury nears completion with the North node from the recent retrograde period (exact tomorrow). This means it may become clear which, of the many options or paths you have been considering in recent weeks, you are being guided to take, pushed to embrace.” Lyn Dalebout Sidereal Astrology
