The powerful transit of the planet Uranus into the zodiacal sign of Taurus on the 6th of March 2019 that continues through to July 2026 brings the energies of radical change and a real opportunity to shake up the status quo around the ways the Earth’s natural resources are being used and managed.
Uranus changes signs approximately every seven years and has been in the zodiacal sign of Aries since March 2011. From an alchemical perspective the planet Uranus is the harbinger of radical change and the need for higher levels of mental acuity and perception. The modern day alchemist, who is the eighth ray ritual magician, works with the power of Uranus as a cosmic ally to consciously introduce the alchemical principles of liberation and change into life. During the time Uranus was in Aries, the zodiacal sign of ‘The Pioneer’, we witnessed the growth of social activism and the birth of movements such as #MeToo.
With the planet Uranus now in the earthy zodiacal sign of Taurus, the zodiacal sign of ‘The Nature Lover’, each one of us has a magical opportunity to actively work to seed an enhanced awareness of the need for and support of global movements that are focused on the wellbeing of the Earth, Mother Nature and her resources. With the planet Uranus moving into the zodiacal sign of Taurus it is a very conducive time to undertake the Eighth Ray Spiritual Activism Ritual to magically plant the seeds of radical change and increased awareness for the wise use of the Earth’s natural resources.
The Eighth Ray Spiritual Activism Ritual is a spiritual practice that both seeds in new energies and sends out a powerful magical invitation to the collective and to the world on a daily basis to co-create positive change and to bring new forms into being. It is an invitation to co-create a new improved matrix for life and living. It is a powerful universal service-based ritual that works with the forces of change and has a form-changing and matrix changing focus and basis for the purpose of bringing improved ways of living and being into manifestation. It is a ritual synthesis of the power of the divine feminine aligning with the ‘will to good’. It is the power of intelligent co-creation operating in accord with the forces at work in the universe along with the power of compassion.
Eighth Ray Spiritual Activism Ritual is used to affect and impact change on a global scale. This powerful ritual is carried out with a specific magical focus. You can choose your own magical focus and carry out your own Eighth Ray Spiritual Activism Ritual based on what feels important to you and where you sense the greatest need in the world. Based on your chosen magical focus, you will need to adjust the selection of alchemical formulations. For the Eighth Ray Spiritual Activism Ritual that powerfully keys into the celestial tide of power of the planet Uranus moving into the zodiacal sign of Taurus, the chosen magical focus is to plant the seeds of radical change for the wise use of the Earth’s natural resources.
The essential steps necessary to carry out this ritual are outlined below. You can find the full eight-step Eighth Ray Spiritual Activism Ritual on page 288 in my book Eighth Ray Magic: The Magic of the Goddess – The Magic of Co-Creation.
It is best to do this ritual starting on the New Moon (you can find New Moon dates here). Then continue working with it on a daily basis until the conclusion of the lunar cycle. This way of working with the Moon enables you to magically seed in a new pattern in the matrix of the collective consciousness. You can repeat the full lunar cycle with this Eighth Ray Spiritual Activism Ritual whenever you feel called to do so.
Burn the Uranus planetary incense
Put a pinch of Uranus ritual incense on the glowing charcoal. When the incense is smoking say:
“I bridge the worlds with this sacred suffumigation of Uranus”
Light the central ritual candle
Light the central candle. Your intent is also to project light into the world powerfully, intelligently and purposefully and to be one with the energies of co-creation to ‘purpose good’. The four statements that you make as you light the ritual candle create an arrow of light that forms a pathway for the projection of light. The projection of light expresses as a manifestation of divine will, divine mind and divine love to create a magical outcome that is a manifestation of the restorative power of the co-creative feminine.
“Light victorious, light triumphant, light eternal, light in extension!”
Anoint yourself with Uranus planetary and Taurus zodiacal anointing oils.
Put three drops of each anointing oil into a small dish.
Use your index finger and dip it into the anointing oil in the dish and anoint the mark of the lunar crescent on the centre of your forehead.
Say as you do so:
“The mark of moon magic”
Then place three drops from each of the anointing bottles in a triangle pattern on your inner left wrist. Then bring both wrists together with your wrists in a cross symbol in front of your body. Rub your wrists together and then inhale the fragrance deeply three times.
Ingest the Uranus planetary, Taurus zodiacal and 12th mansion of life elixirs as a ritual libation.
You now place three drops of the elixirs you are working with in a triangular pattern in the water in the chalice. Start at the apex of the triangle with one drop of elixir then at each other point of the triangle in the indicated order. Start with the planetary elixir, then the zodiacal elixir and finally add the mansion of life elixir. There will be nine drops of alchemical elixir in total added to the chalice.
As you add the three drops of each elixir in a successive triangular pattern into the water in your chalice, see in your mind how you are magically creating and extending a bridge of light to magically draw down the celestial forces and energies through the worlds to work magic, the Moon magic of re-formation. You are doing this through the power of magical invocation using your ‘ritual prayer of magical intent’. The objective being to magically co-create with the ‘magic of the Moon’ whose ‘mark’ you have anointed yourself with.
As you are placing the drops of each planetary, zodiacal and mansion of life elixir in the chalice you are also inspirationally creating your lunar ‘ritual prayer of magical intent’. This is an integrated three-part invocation and is a very important part of the Eighth Ray Spiritual Activism Ritual process. It is the applied power of magical invocation used as a dynamic magically co-creative act. This magical invocation is part formulaic and part inspirational. To create your ‘ritual prayer of magical intent’, you work with the formulaic statements and you inspirationally, spontaneously and in a very Uranian manner add qualities of the planet, zodiacal sign or mansion of life to create a magical statement or commentary of magical intent and purpose, based on the qualities and attributes of the planet Uranus, the zodiacal sign of Taurus and the 12th mansion of life.
Uranus planetary elixir
As you put the drops of Uranus planetary elixir in the chalice say:
“I call upon the power, intelligence and purposeful action of the planet Uranus, planet of change, inventiveness and liberation”
Taurus zodiacal elixir
As you put the drops of Taurus zodiacal elixir in the chalice say:
“to express powerfully, intelligently and purposefully through the zodiacal sign of Taurus, sign of stability, abundance and love of nature”
12th mansion of life elixir
As you put the drops of the 12th mansion of life elixir in the chalice say:
“and focus your energies powerfully, intelligently and purposefully in the 12thmansion of life, mansion of life of the collective unconscious, philanthropy and hidden resources”
When you have created and spoken the invocative ‘ritual prayer of magical intent’ you then place your hands in a triangular shape, thumb to thumb, index finger to index finger over the top of the chalice. Blow through the triangle onto the water and say:
“The breath of life quickens the waters of re-formation”
Then slowly drink the potentised water that has now alchemically transformed to become the re-forming ‘magical lunar waters of life’. Say decisively and powerfully:
“With the assistance of my celestial allies I create a bridge of light, Isis-Urania Queen of Magic, I call forth your form giving magical power to co-create the world anew”
Pause, then say:
“Behold the heavens. Behold the earth. Behold the child!”
Send the energy out and magically open the eighth ray magic portal on the selected frequency
To the alchemist, who is the eighth ray ritual magician, the breath, as well as being the essence of life itself is magically understood to be the ‘spirit breath’ and is one of the key animating and vivifying principles in alchemy. If you have one, pick up your Eighth Ray Isis-Urania crystal wand in readiness to send the energy out and magically open the eighth ray magic portal. Hold the Isis-Urania crystal wand with both hands in front of you, eight fingers to the front of the crystal wand and your two thumbs at the back. If you do not have the Isis-Urania crystal wand just proceed with the breath sequence. Take three slow deep breaths to alchemically and magically weave the energies that you have ingested in the Eighth Ray Spiritual Activism Ritual libation into a unified light power and to open the eighth ray magic portal. Each time you breathe out after taking an in breath, blow the breath out before you like a wind by exhaling strongly through slightly pursed lips. If you have an Isis-Urania crystal wand then blow your intent four times into the crystal ball at the top of your Isis-Urania crystal wand and say:
- “I blow it through my world, (Then blow your first spirit breath)
- I blow it through the world (Then blow your second spirit breath)
- I blow it through the greater universe (Then blow your third spirit breath)
- I blow it through the worlds” (Then blow your fourth spirit breath)
Step 6 (optional)
Lock in the magical frequency and seal the aura
Spray the Porta Alchemica® Alchemist Aura Mist three times in the shape of a triangle: above the head, then above the right and then left shoulder to lock in your intent and seal the aura to hermetically contain the energies and powers you wish to express and make manifest. Say silently or preferably decisively and forcefully out loud:
Your Eighth Ray Spiritual Activism Ritual is now complete.
This Eighth Ray Spiritual Activism Ritual is very powerful and can be conducted daily and as often as you feel called to stand for Mother Nature and to plant the seeds of radical change for the wise use of the Earth’s natural resources.
