Changing Winds are Up...
Without choosing between high or low,
Exalted or humble, it touches everywhere.'
The treatment process will be facilitated by Edna Spennato in Praia do Frances on the NE coast of Brazil, with the assistance of five surrogates located on different continents, surrogating on behalf of all the participants around the world.
There is still time to register as a participant in this event - more info here.
The May New Moon will be particularly powerful, sandwiched in between the two Wesak Full Moons, and on the exact midpoint between Spring Equinox and Summer Solstice, a feast known as Beltane in the earth religions.
What is seeded during this New Moon will manifest fully at the Solstice on 21 June 2008, on both a personal and planetary level.
The New Moon in Taurus on May 5, 2008 represents the core of the 30-day Scorpio-Taurus Wesak Transformation period. The theme of this New Moon is “moving on and not looking back”.
As we approach the New Moon, remember that when working with this powerful creative life force energy (described here), it's important to stay focused on what we are creating in the Now and not to look back for too long at the past.
The New Moon
This New Moon occurs on May 5 at 12:18 GMT, when it will be in exactly the same direction as the Sun, and there will be no visible sunlight on the side of the Moon that faces the Earth.
The eight hours following the moment of New Moon are considered to be the most powerful hours in which to plant the seeds we wish to nurture, make our wishes and manifest our chosen reality i.e. until 20:18 GMT (or 17:18 Brazil time, 21:18 in London, and 22:18 in South Africa).
Our group distant healing event on May 5 will be happening during the powerful hours following the New Moon, starting at 13:00 GMT (or 10:00 local Brazilian time, 14:00 in London and 15:00 in Southern Africa), and continuing for approximately 3 - 4 hours, until around 17:00 GMT.

The new moon is always a time of new beginnings, a time to actively pursue our dreams, an idea, plan or project. The moon increases in light between the new and full moon, so at the new moon we should put our energy into the things we want to nurture, or to become stronger or more important in our lives.
The power of the new moon phase is in effect until the full moon. The 72 hours prior to the New Moon are called Balsamic moon or dark of the moon and the 2nd, 3rd and 4th of May carry very powerful energy if we use these days to make intentions. This is also an excellent time to do a detoxification on a physical level.
This is also the best time to write yourself an “Abundance Cheque”. The idea is to make use of the power of a new moon period to bring extra clarity to a goal that you want to set, and to watch this specific goal bloom and grow throughout the rest of that moon cycle. In other words, you are setting a specific "wish" into motion that will allow you to push something into manifestation in your life.
Write an Abundance Check to unblock the flow of energy in any area of your life. For more info on how to do it, go to this link.
For manifestation, the ideal time to write down our intentions is during the days preceding the New Moon, and then to read them aloud in the eight hour period following the New Moon i.e. after 12:18 GMT. Focus on whatever you would like to manifest in your life, but especially those things that you have not yet been able to attain, even though you may have wanted them for a long time. Focus, and be specific.
Because the New Moon is in Taurus this time, a pragmatic earth sign, practical goals are attainable such as working to launch a new enterprise, moving or purchasing a home, organizing finances, landscaping and gardening, decorating and home improvements, and improvement of health.

Wesak is about man's union with nature and with the stars. A celebration of the divinity behind all manifestation: the infinite intelligence that lives in all. Man acknowledging his place, honoring all living beings, all participants in the cycle of life.
Many rituals are performed during Wesak. In Malaysia it is good karma to release caged animals. Doves, tortoises, frogs and birds are freed from small cages on the steps of temples, a good metaphor for us.
Opening the caged and limited view of ourselves, and letting that deep connection with divinity free to manifest in us is one of the best conscious actions we can perform during this period. Stepping out of a cage implies remembering how to be free.
A brotherhood between Christ and Buddha is the axis of this powerful collective encounter in the Wesak Valley each year.
The Wesak Festival is an opportunity to appreciate the unity in our diversity, as groups of all faiths unite all over the planet to invoke the Divine. More info at this link.
This year something magical is afoot: we have two Full Moons in the sign of Scorpio, which means, essentially, two Wesak Moons. The energy and field of impact are greatly magnified with two Full Moons in the same sign of Scorpio, and this rare 30-day Wesak portal won't occur again until 2027.
From the Full Moon in April to the Full Moon in May, we are engaged in a shamanic dance of death and rebirth. This series of alignments creates a transformational portal for the healing of outdated beliefs and behaviors that no longer serve our evolution. Miraculous changes happen easily within this energy. A complete reconfiguration is possible.
On April 20, a Full Moon occurred in the first degree of Scorpio. The second Wesak Moon happens 29 days later, in the last degree of Scorpio. Life as we know it could change radically between Point A and Point B. In the relentlessly transformative sign of Scorpio, the Moon's rays dig deep to illuminate what's been held in the subconscious, both individually and collectively.
In Tibetan Buddhism, Wesak celebrates the birth, death and enlightenment of the Buddha. Clearly, Tibet will continue to be in the world spotlight as Buddhists and many others around the world celebrate the lunar holy day.
An ancient legend says it is during Wesak, the Taurus Full Moon, that the Buddha leaves the High place where He works and dwells (see the photograph on the left of the Wesak Valley in N.India) to return to the earth and BLESS the WORLD. This festival is not only celebrated at Wesak, North India, but also at spiritual centers throughout the world.
Beltane: May 1-5
May 1 – 5 is Beltane, a time of fertility, opening us to all that is rich, luxuriant and abundant in our lives.. So, whether we are planting ideas, projects, business, babies, relationships or just a greater sense of peace, we are planting a crop which we will harvest over the next few months, and we should take great care this month to encourage the plants and not the weeds in our lives and our minds...
Beltane is a celebration of personal blessings and the joy of community. One of the four "cross-quarters" of the solar year, Beltane marks the mid-point between the March Equinox and June Solstice. We celebrate Beltane with community festivals of renewal, joy and hope.
Traditionally observed on May 1 and sometimes referred to as May Day, Beltane is the pagan celebration of spring and the flowering of life in the northern hemisphere.
The maypole represents the merging of masculine and feminine, the god and goddess whose union creates life. We dance the maypole and jump the Beltane fire in celebration of the infinite blessings bestowed on our home, our family and our world.
Astronomically, Beltane arrives when the Sun reaches 15 degrees Taurus on May 5. A point of balance in the Earth's journey around the Sun, Beltane is a festival of renewal, fertility, sensuality and delight.
This is the time to join with others in community, to open ourselves to giving, releasing and receiving, to meditation, prayer, blessings and creating with intent, and offering our gifts in service to the Divine.
