The Lunar Serpent
KUNDALINI SHAKTI RITUAL
DARK MOON IN THE LUNAR CONSTELLATION OF THE SNAKE
FRIDAY THE 1st OF APRIL
20:00 – 22:00 CEST
19:00 – 21:00 GMT
21:00 – 23:00 BG
We will meet on the first dark Moon post-equinox, for Kundalini Shakti ritual.
We have recently entered into the ascending phase of the year, where the days are now longer than the nights.
This is the first dark Moon at the exordium of the rising half of the year.
We will be connecting to the Kundalini serpent by way of Tantric star ritual, while the dark Moon is positioned in the lunar mansion of Uttra Bhadrapada Nakshatra.
This is a favourable position for the descending tides of awareness to swim into the unconscious realities and illusions of the sexual Chakra.
On this night, we will work with the Tantric invocation of the star forces of Uttara Bhadrapada. The name of this lunar mansion translates as the mature beautifully terrifying steps.
We will indeed attempt to take mature beautifully terrifying steps.
Ponder if you will, upon the words: Beautifully terrifying step.
How do beauty and fear relate to each other?
Therein lays the secret of Bhadrapada.
The Shakti Chakra is the foundation of Kundalini Shakti.
It is the place of originating life force…. The place of the Goddess.
The Yogin gathers together scattered physical and psychic force, and brings it to the foundation of reality.
The deity that dwells upon the constellation of Uttara Bhadrapada is the water snake who is known as Ahirbudhnya.
His name can be broken into two words, Ahir means the upper celestial realm, and Budhnya means the deep foundation.
The secret of polarities and exchange is implicit in his name.
The roots come from below, but to rise into the tree, they must have a foundation.
The lunarly watery snake Ahirbudhnya relates to the downward circuitry and foundation of Kundakini Shakti.
Just like waster, this serpent descends and finds the deepest point.
The serpent Ahirbudhnya teaches us the way of sinking to the depths, of going way down into the deep receptive waters of the soul.
As the Moon is descending, the tide ebbs, along with this, the fluidic currents within us descend towards the foundational Chakras.
The Moon serpent Ahirbudhnya is another form of the storm god Rudra in his raining raging downpour.
The power of the root is deep in the depths
This Moon serpent is full of the secrets of the ocean depths. To voyage with the serpent of silver celestial slither, is to melt into magical places unknown, unseen and forgotten.
We will be voyaging into the deep place of self-illumined jewels, that is known to Yogins as Naag Lokha.
Please have a vessel of water close to hand in your ritual place.
We will be working with summoning the celestial forces of Uttara Bhadrapada Nakshatrai into the water, and learning how to create a Tantric remedy that will further assist us in melting into the foundation of our being.
On this night, we will summon the watery forces of emotion by accessing our deeply underground currents of feeling.
Then we will centralise and feed the watery forces of emotion into the descending Kundalini Moon channel of the spinal serpent of water.
When watery emotion and force is expressed haphazardly without foundation, it can flood and drown out the potential that is inherent in the forces of feeling.
But when watery emotion is focussed and strategically applied to the centralised position of the Kundalini Moon serpent in the inner subtle spinal channel, then it is nourished unto Kundalini Shakti Jagra.
Kundalini Shakti Jagra translates as the awakening of the primal psycho/physical serpent power of the human energy system.
This is the energy that the Tantrics refer to as Kundalini Shakti.
This will be a ritual of working with the tides of feeling and watery lunary emotion.
What is watery lunary emotion?
It is emotion that is moist, emotion with juice and tears… potentially nourishing if brought to vision, or potentially drowning and smothering if in slumber.
The descent into emotion can become all-possessing and absorbing.
We can even feel drowned in the floods of emotion.
The Yogin channels the waters of emotion into a stream of spiritual potency by ritualistically focusing on the vision of Yog. The vision is the treasure, and the treasure is love.
By working with the Moon serpent ritualistically, may we awaken to the treasure of watery lunary emotion… Love
