Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on Oct 28, 2023
OCTOBER 27, 2023 - Moon Set - Sun Rise
Below bright Jupiter and
The Pleiades & Hyades
5:55 am (my time EST)
When this moon rises in fullness
in 12 ish hours from this post
It will be in Eclipse Shadow
Where the earth sits directly
between Moon and Sun
Casting an earth shadow on the moon
Blocking some sunlight from reaching the surface
To reflect and bounce back to our eyes off the mirror reflector lunar body
When this moon rises, it will also be much closer to Jupiter, and Uranus and the Pleiades
Happy Lunar Eclipse day friends
We have arrived!!

Oct 28 Lunar Eclipse Energies
When we have a Solar Eclipse alignment, the sun and the moon occupy the same spot in the sky. A Lunar Eclipse – they are in direct opposition – across the sky from each other.
Solar Energies represent radiant expansive pulsating outward flow of plasma gas and heat and light – very firey. Often associated with the masculine yang energies.
Lunar Energies are more reflective, inward, contemplative, yin settling quieting energies. More associated with the feminine yin energetic.
This yin yang across the sky opposition energy is a powerful Celestial Gateway. Celestial Bodies that are in opposition balance each other out. One rises while the other sets. One lowers in the sky and the other goes higher. They also create a magnetic pull-pole-dynamic attraction that influences everything between them.
This includes YOU! As an earthling, all of these astronomical events we track are geocentric, are events as observed from here on earth. So, the horizon line of this rise and set polar opposite is the earth line. We sit in the middle. This very moment in earth long lens history is a short moment in galactic time when the disc of the sun and the moon happen to make the same diameter disc in the sky, so that they can cover and eclipse each other like this. And YOU incarnated on this planet at this brief moment in time! Why are you here? What is your soul purpose? What role do you fill in the big picture of humanity and globally? What is your heart and soul calling and how are you fulfilling it?
These are the questions that a lunar eclipse pull unearths. We dig up all the old programming that gets in our way. We honor and observe the shadows, using them as teaching tools. In fact, they get brought front and center, highlighted by a Lunar Eclipse.
You are smack in the middle of the strong magnetic pull to your need for quiet alone time and introspection, and your soul longing to make a big impact for the whole globe. Each Lunar Eclipse contains this magnetic pull of opposites alignment, as does each Full Moon. The Moon moves across the sky along the zodiac constellations rapidly, changing placements by the day. The Sun has its annular journey across the zodiac constellations, building out a solar year.
Where the Sun and the Moon sit in the sky influence the solar system magnetics. The pull of the planets, especially the ones closer to earth, have a strong geometric and magnetic influence. They influence the body of the earth, the whole planet, AND they influence YOUR personal multidimensional energy field- heart, mind, soul and body.
Exploring the Cosmic Lunar Eclipse Players - Moon & Juptier - Sun & Mars & MErcury
During the Lunar Eclipse on October 28, 2023 - we have some cosmic players adding their pull. The Sun sits in the sky with Mars & Mercury. The Moon sits near Jupiter, and adjacent to Uranus & The Pleiades.
A push pull between the Jupiter Moon and the Mars Mercury infused Sun sets up a cosmic opportunity for growth and expansion!
Deep In The Heart of Texas - Eclipse Crossroads - 2023 & 2024
DEEP IN THE HEART OF TEXAS - ECLIPSE CROSSROADS - 2023 & 2024
I got called to the Eclipse Path Crossroads…Deep in the Heart of Texas! Yee Haw!!
We have two eclipses sweeping across the Americas within 7 months of each other - An Annular Solar Eclipse on October 14, 2023 and a Total Solar Eclipse on April 8, 2024. These two eclipses make a crossing - deep in the heart of Hill Country Texas.
I have been called to gridwork and gatekeep with the eclipse cycles since 2017. This 2023/2024 Eclipse crossing is part of the larger Eclipse Cycle - the 2017 - 2024 Great North American Eclipse Cycle.
I was strongly called to be here in person - in the Crossroads of the Eclipse Paths. That put me here in X marks the spot Texas Hill Country Heartland.
The pathways across the continent from the October 14, 2023 Annual Solar Eclipse and the April 8, 2024 Total Solar Eclipse cross in Texas Hill Country- Deep in the Heart of Texas (my theme song here). check out the map images below.
When planning my trip months and month ago, I found a sweet rental unit - and check the alignments - it is called the Moonrise Studio - and it is in Utopia Texas. That I knew on booking- perfect. When it got the directions here I found it is on Sunrise Hill Road.
Moonrise Studio on Sunrise Hill Road in Utopia Texas. Perfect placement!
It is beyond the beyond here- and the eclipse came to me on my back porch vista!
I used iMovie to compile the videos I took (no editing, just back to back for easy sharing with you here as one unit)

Our October 14, 2023 Annular (Ring of Fire) Solar Eclipse takes place in the Virgo Constellation. The Sun & Moon unite as one, occupying the same exact sky spot, with the Sun behind the Moon. When this cosmic union takes place, the sun and moon are in between Mercury and Mars, and entering the Gateway between Arcturus & Spica.
The Moon is the fast mover in this cosmic dance. The Moon was with Mercury at 3 am CST, unites with the Sun at noon, and then moves along past Spica at 7 pm CST/around Sunset, and flows thought the Virgo Gateway (between Spica & Arcturus) then dances over to visit with Mars on October 15 at sunrise.
Cosmic Rising is when 2 celestial bodies rise together, and Cosmic setting is the set together.
Cosmic Eclipse Alignments:
Moon with Mercury - 3 am CST 10/14
Cosmic Rising Sun Moon Arcturus (Mercury) - 7:30 am CST on 10/14
Eclipse - Sun & Moon Unite - 10:30 - 1:30 CST on 10/14
Cosmic Setting of Sun Moon Spica - 7:30 pm CST on 10/14
Cosmic Rising of Moon with Mars - 8:30 am CST on 10/15
Spica is the bright bluish star in the wheat stalks held by the Lady in the Sky – the constellation Virgo. It is regarded by all sky cultures as one of the most positive stars in the sky. In most cultures, the constellation Virgo was seen as the Goddess. In ancient Egypt, particularly the later periods, it was seen as the Goddess Isis, and the star Spica represented or embodied her son, Horus. In later Christian traditions, the constellation was associated with the Virgin Mary and Spica with the Christ-child (there is much research into the possibility that Spica was the biblical Star of Bethelehem). Others have the constellation representing the Goddess with Spica the star in Her hand or upholding some form of produce of the earth (most usually wheat).” - from spicaastrology .com
Spica Key Qualities: Knowing, Celebration, Completion
“Spica speaks to the deepest part of us, bringing our depths up to the surface, so that we may know beyond doubt that we come from love and return to love in every cycle of existence, whether that is a lifetime or a breath. It takes us into the stillness of our being, the knowing that is beyond knowledge. It guides us to acceptance of the essential oneness of all life. There is a natural response to arriving at the knowing of oneness which we might call celebration. It is as if the burden of the illusion of separation, in being released, also allows a joy to bubble up within us, and that joy seeks expression.” - from heaven on earth.com

The Keepers of the DAwn: Sirius & Venus
Both Sirius and Venus are emerging from the Solar Light, and rising just before dawn on the eastern horizon. Sirius rises first, and is further south of east on the horizon line. You will see the distinctive constellation Orion above. The belt stars of Orion act like a pointer line to Sirius, below the 3 star belt and cloudy nebula. Venus is brighter, and rises close to due east. It is visible for longer as well, being brighter.
When a star is close in the sky to the sun, we are not able to view it. When it moves out of the light sphere of the sunlight, and we can see it rising on its own again before dawn we are witnessing the Heliacal Rising. This revelation moment, the Heliacal Rising, is an age old important noted time by sky watchers. In Ancient sky watching cultures (which is all ancient cultures) the heliacal rising of stars was used a marker of time and a way to seat seasonal and annual calendars. The ancient sky watchers and shamans were the ones who guided and informed the people of the important dates and were "keepers" of the calendars, set by the skies. An important role would be the Keepers of the Dawn - to awake in the darkness and watch the skies. A clear open vista to an eastern horizon line was a precious potent important point of observation. Many a sacred site included a observatory temple space and often stone structure monuments to accentuate and highlight these celestial body rising - stars and planets, sun and moon risings.
Modern devices (calendars, moon charts, observatories) have made the role of rising and watching somewhat redundant. We can use the phones in our pockets to connect with many charts and data sets. The task of being the Watcher, the Keeper of the Dawn is less critical to village life and has largely faded. Yet, so many of us are remembering and re-awakening our innate skillsets as Celestial Shamans.
Many of us have this sky watcher tendencies encoded in our being. Where we feel the call to rise as Keepers of the Dawn. It is truly why some of these traditions of waking and connecting in the cosmos have permeated so many sacred practices and rituals. Because this time of the day has a potent opening or gateway quality which is precious and pure. the light that shines as day breaks is called brahmamuhurtha, the ambrosial hours, the amrit vela, the nectar of the gods, the honey of immortality. A similar ambrosial gateway exists at sunset.
As modern day Celestial Shamans, we rise at this hour for the love, the light, the joy of it. To connect with the cosmos. To receive inspiration and illumination. To uplift the soul!
In early September, The Keepers of the Dawn are graced with TWO important celestial bodies rising before dawn. Sirius and Venus. Both became potentially visible mid/late August. This visibility depends on your location, both longitude placement and sightline specific, as well as clear sky and weather influenced.
My region has been blessed with much moisture this summer, which includes copious cloud cover. I myself got my first clear glimpse of these celestial light beauties on September 1.
The pictures above I took on that special first sighting morning.
September 3 is of note as Venus & Sirius Cosmic Rising. Cosmic Rising is when two celestial bodes rise together. Venus completes a period of retrograde motion, and turns direct on September 3, so like a pendulum swing, that Venus turn direct point is as close as these two (Venus & Sirius) get together in the sky.
These two Celestial Beauties will grace our low east horizon early morning skies for the first few weeks of September. Get up early to catch a glimpse. This week Venus is rising around 4:20 am. Venus is brighter. Take note of Procyon, which triangulates between them. Use the pointer stars of Orion's Belt to track your way to Sirius. Venus in her diamond light will be obvious. Procyon is between them.
WHITE WINGED ONES - THE PEGASUS
Many of us received visits from White Winged Ones during this special Full Moon. Pegasus, Feathered Serpents, Dragons
When so many “reports” of winged horses riding in on the winds and the clouds and the soft white moon light rays, I turned my Celestial Shaman eyes to the skies and noticed that the moon itself, on its path through the sky, was riding along the wings of the Pegasus Constellation on August 29, 30, 31 & Sept 1.
It’s so amazingly cool and awesome how the Celestial field is reflected in our dreams, our connections and our inner visions. As well as in the sky, water and clouds.
Invite the white winged ones to gallop and prance through your field of awareness. They spring forth creativity, magic and wonder! New ways of thinking, creating and being.

2023 Celestial Alignments
The Dog Days of Summer (Northern Hemisphere)
CYCLES OF SIRIUS
Sirius, the twinkling bright disco ball star is prominent in the winter evening northern hemisphere sky, It dips lower and lower every night of spring, until it begins to join the sun, rendering it "invisible" to us, as it comes close to the sun in the daytime sky. We are in that part of the cycle now, Sirius is a "daytime star" - and thereby not visible to us humans here on earth.
The last time we can see Sirius, low in the western sky just after sunset is early/mid May. This last time you can see a star (or planet) in the twighlight sky is called the Heliacal Setting. Heliacal means "near the sun". The date varies by your latitude - and for the whole globe it is Mid May this year. At my 42 degrees, this year it was around May 3-5.
Other poignant Celestial Stargate of note are the Cosmic Setting and Cosmic Rising. This is when two celestial bodies set or rise at the same time. On August 4, 2023 - The Sun & Sirius rise together !! (the day I am writing this blog). The Sun & Sirius set together May 28, 2023.
Heliacal Rising is the moment we can see a celestial body (star/planet) rise just before sunrise on the eastern horizon. Just like the setting - this is subjective to your location and vistas - and most of the globe sees them within a week of each other. In 2023 - the Heliacal rising of Sirius takes place during the window of August 14-17 ish. For my location, i have my target date of August 16 to being to look. While some of this can be "predicted" it is a real time moment, you being awake and looking at a clear line of eastern horizon - and weather and could cover and such. It is a sacred special moment of connection right to the Star itself.
This year - we have another celestial light player - the bright planet Venus - adding in the cosmic dance party.
Venus is with the sun in the sky now too - and conjuncts close on August 13. The Sun, New Moon & Venus rise together (Cosmic Rising) on August 16.
The early mornings before dawn through the end of August - we will be able to see BOTH Sirius & Venus low on the eastern horizon (and higher every day) - a very special celestial treat!
UNLOCKING THE KEYS FROM THE SKY TABLET OF TAL-QADI
THE GOLDEN GATE OF THE ECLIPTIC
Unlocking the KEYS from the SKY TABLET OF TAL-QADI
My ancestors are from Malta (my birth name is Bonnici). The temples on Malta have been calling me very loud for many years. I feel like my natural proclivity for sound codes come from this lineage and DNA line of mine. One Maltese Temple in particular started projecting codes my way and calling to me super duper loud during this Mars Pleiades gateway. Tal Qadi Temple. In the ruins and wreckage of this ancient star temple was found an etched stone, that is thought to be a star map. This stone is considered by some to be the oldest astronomical tool or sky map, dated around 4,000 BC.
The Golden Gate of the Ecliptic is an asterism (recognizable grouping of stars) in the constellation Taurus that has been known for several thousand years. The constellation is built by the two eye-catching open star clusters of the Pleiades and the Hyades that form the two posts of a virtual gate at the two sides of the ecliptic line.
Since all planets as well as the moon and the sun always move very closely along the virtual circle of the ecliptic, all these seven orbiting bodies are regularly passing through the Golden Gate of the Ecliptic.
I draw your attention today to this GOLDEN STAR GATE. This stargate has held great significance for humanity since ancient times. It is a section of the night sky that calls loudly to many of us, the Sirius, Orion, Aldebaran, Hyades, Pleiades region.
Uncovered on the Island of Malta in excavations of 1927 was an etched limestone tablet. Now known as The Sky Tablet of Tal-Qadi, this tablet is an ancient star map and astronomy tool. Used around 4000 BC, this sky map/tablet shows us the passage of the Sun, Moon and the five visible planets through the Golden Gate.
The Golden Gate of The Ecliptic also serves as a moon “observatory”. As the Moon passes through the gate over the year, it moves through its various phases. In fact, if you watch the moon pass through this gate through the 12 months of the year, it will highlight and showcase the progression of the moon through its phases. I continue researching on the building of stone archeoastronomy calendars and tracking of Lunar Standstills and how our ancestors used this gate as a marker to design these lunar calendar sites.
There is a correlation between Chaco Canyon, New Mexico, Pilot Mountain, North Carolina and this temple on Malta. All three sites sit around the 36th longitude parallel. They all hold some crystalline coding along this parallel, and there is a correlation between the astronomical observation point of the Tal-Qadi temple on Malta, and the astronomical alignment stones set to mark the lunar standstill cycles in Chaco Canyon.
