Full Moon ~ Saturday, September 10, 2022
If you are new to transmissions I ask you to PLEASE READ THIS link before taking in the actual offering.
Passion is Potency
a true forgetting of the
small self..
jagged lightening bolts
shattering, then
consuming in the Phoenix fire,
the shards of those small remaining pieces of your
undigested power..
power that can stubbornly refuse not to fully recognize its single Source
in self annihilation
in the Flame of Love..
for fear that that might actually mean
becoming the flame fuel for the Creatrix’s
electric orange molten magma
which consumes the rigid black lava of your terror of actually
 letting go
offering with a sigh the calcified, unchanging, fixed positions
 now touched free in the conscious heat of
the flame of the Goddess’ temple
truth burning in the belly
Shakti fire raging
locked in a sensuous dance with freedom
that is the alchemical container that burns clear
whatever you still may refuse to surrender…
in your dance with power
what part of your power has not yet been fully freed into Love?
Art by Elizabeth Kyle
For that is the gate guardian
to Merlin’s domain
as his cape of the indigo vault of heaven,
 and his impish innocence clearly reflects,
his hard crabby hermit exterior
made of “strong, practical, responsible”
only keeping away the unwary well wishers wanting wisdom
“what does any of this have to do with me,
the mind suddenly rudely interjects
blissus interruptus
stealing the microphone from the Witness
who doesn’t even really care if you still have judgment or critical acclaim
even as the hero or heroine of your own holographic game
so what i really want to know is
what keeps you from wresting the microphone away from the
troll holding court on your shoulder
yelling mean things in your ear at times
in vain attempts to try to keep you in
the tiny, Lilliputian virtual domain
constructed from any remaining fear or judgment..
meant to keep you matrix manageable
Jigs up!
You’re down the rabbit hole now,
no hiding from the mythic talent scout you scripted to come in
at this section of your archetypal movie to read you
today’s headlines.. “Bash Thrown by Emptiness: Ego/mind found joyfully consumed
 in the opulent profusion of a Dionysian bacchinal
 thrown by the Now 
inhabiting Essence
Who is choosing to step up.
Archetypal, alchemical melt down of judgment and fear dissolved
by putting them on the witness stand for a change
 and while they’re there,
 be sure to ask them who pays their salaries?
and while your at it.. why don’t you ask if, why or how
you are still playing that silly “shrink to fit” game? …
“It was noted by Timeless magazine that Awareness was observed.. entertaining itself
by pouring melted gold light between two chalices
until such time as you decided to open your heart in childlike vulnerability and transparency
 so that Awareness could let the illuminating gold rush rip
to fill up your clear, empty chalice…
with the light that sounds like… Tibetan temple bowls
played with the loving hands of monks given to hearing the voice of Silence
clean, clear, cool, blue, penetrating, vertical
making mandalas of manifested light
om sounded on oil
forms a twelve pointed star
receptive coding
that you now have chosen consciously to stand in the middle of
in this initiatory fire
like Arthur, like Merlin,
like the mantle Christ placed on Mary Magdalen at his leave taking,
hot orange flames holding the immanent, horizontal frequency of the Goddess
that rushes headlong through the body’s black and gold Shakti snakes
that both consume and fuel creation
with their passion
the orange and blue flames dying embrace in a fire’s embers..
shaking with the radiance of
the Shakti fire
that unifies all appearances
Empress, Hermit, Magus,
Unwhole, Unwise, Unwilling
Unprepared to pay the price
of admission to Lucidity..
that sees through the multiplicity of things
into the Realm of what’s Real?
I don’t think so.
I think you are prepared to pay the price
because you already did pay for your admission to this holographic movie of yours..
the mystical rose you carry in the stars in your blood
continuously pours forth the alchemical gold elixir from the Grail Castle wine cellars
with the seal of five triangles descending to the status nascendi,
the jewel hidden in matter,
bindi of the mystery of the sacred wax cask wine seal
broken simply by being empty enough
to be a lightening rod for the
of Divine Mother’s holy Fire.

Dear Beloved ~
I am offering members a zoom call for Post Transmission Reflections which will be an opportunity for us to connect and share around the theme in the full moon transmission. This is an open forum for members to share our reflections, our wisdom, our art, poetry, our inquiries.. ..whatever your response is to the inquiry in the Transmission for that moon. We are shaping this new offering ourselves, so we will see what the collective of who is inspired to come participate, wants to bring into form and feel supported by in our spiritual journeys. 
We invite you to join this post transmission circle and become a member of our community at the Sanctuary. This is a community of diverse beings woven together in service to the One Heart. Together we are remembering and reemerging the Sacred Feminine to be seen and powerfully experienced in the world!

Guiding Principles & Guidelines
for Preparation and Participation in
Sanctuary of the Open Heart Circles
A STRONG REQUEST from Ariel to watch these important GUIDELINES for all Sanctuary circles!!
Re-Visioning-Alchemy Circle
“May thine eye be single.”
Dear Beloveds…
For me, the most potent aspect of Empty Presence is the alchemical transmutation that becomes possible as we hold that field together. We are inspired to offer a moonly call expressly to focus our attention on collective transmutation through alchemical re-visioning, as we are trained to do in etheric Priest/ess temples. That is, with our unified attention in Emptiness, to re-script and re-vision what appearances on the screen of life are most requiring transformation at the time, while also amplifying and giving thanks for that which IS changing and working toward life sustaining choices. We have the power to work WITH Divine intention to change the constructs we have chosen to accept and call “reality”. Whether you call that process the hundredth monkey theory postulated by Rupert Sheldrake as morphogenetic field theory or the formula for shifting underlying reality constructs postulated by Gregg Braden in the Divine Matrix of the square root of one percent of the human population, it is the same operant principle. The summation of which can be simply stated:
WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE to the outcome of the “reality movie” in which we participate!
Do you hear the call to be a part of a Re-visioning-Alchemy circle to make a shift in the reality constructs of this planet? If so, please join us for our Voyage to the Temple of Astraea on the etheric to remember and be re-trained in this advanced Priestess meditation art!
Let us gather in our unified power as Priest/esses to offer the ancient art of Re-visioning-Alchemy for the Purpose of being the Divine Shuttle Reweaving the collective Dream!
Join us for our Voyage to the etheric Priest/ess Temple of Astraea (that we journeyed to at Winter Solstice) to dimensionally gather for this sacred intention.
Sunday, September 11, 2022 at 4:00PM PST
We know we have the power to shift
the collective constructs of this planet
through our unified intention in Love!
Let us use our singular vision for the potent purpose
of greatly needed alchemical transmutation!
( Through Priest/esses mythically spinning straw into alchemical gold!)
In Oneness…Ariel

Join Us on Facebook!
In this crazy modern world of online interaction, genuine heart connection is sadly often missing. In the 13 Moons and Sanctuary of the Open Heart Facebook Group we want to offer a place to join hearts, express our soul journeys, find community and support, and uplift and inspire each other. We welcome your presence, contributions and participation in this sacred online temple. We invite you to JOIN US!
JOIN US FOR THIS PARADIGM SHIFTING EXPLORATION of Priestessing a visionary social justice movement!!
Dear ones,
Let’s come together to talk about using Transformative Justice to reset our societal norms, our definition of power, and our beliefs about gender to create more freedom, safety, and self-expression for all.
Vyana (Heather) Reynolds is a senior priestess of the 13 Moon Mystery School, who is serving on the Board of Directors and as a Temple Keeper for the Sanctuary of the Open Heart for over 13 years. She continues to transform the practice of law from her home in Hawaii. Archetypally, she is a mermaid Muse and water priestess. Vyana’s unorthodox and riveting bio is here.
The knee jerk reaction to America’s sexual violence epidemic is to put all sexual offenders in prison. But even if we did that, it wouldn’t solve our problem. Our culture is a factory of sexual offenders. WE created them and will continue to create more until we transform our culture. It’s time to reinvent the culture so that we stop producing sexual offenders and instead create a society that wants to uplift women and children rather than control, dominate or steal their power. 
That’s why our Community Luminary, Vyana Reynolds, founded and launched Phoenix Rising Empowerment Project just a few weeks ago, where she is questioning the very core of our assumptions and applying innovative interventions instead at a grass-roots level. Our vision of the future is more powerful than our experience of the past.   That is why we have a portion of our website dedicated to Champions – so we can honor those beings who are exhibiting the kind of behavior that we want to see in our world.
We start the healing by breaking the silence and sharing our stories in a safe container where they can be received, believed and documented privately without worry that they can one day be used against us in a court of law. A private database will allow us to identify repeat offenders more quickly and connect those offended to work together to hold offenders accountable, if they so choose.
We believe everyone can heal, even offenders, most of whom are known to us. 
Innovative interventions can use humor, creativity and elegance to find new ways to address old habits. We can rise above our past and evolve our species to a world that is safe for everyone. We haven’t even begun to see what’s possible for humanity when both men and women are empowered to reach their full potential. 
Beloved community,
Human beings are designed to connect in the heart!
Without that connection, a withering can take place, a lack of truly thriving. For all time, beings have gathered in community to share seasonal Turns of the Wheel.. such as we are beginning to feel, as we move toward Fall Equinox Sept 23rd. . In our technologically oriented society, many tend to under-value taking time to meet with each other in person to connect around these impactful “acupuncture points” of Mother Gaia’s seasonal Turns of the Wheel.
  I have been honoring the four major seasonal Turns of the Wheel each year since I was in my early twenties. (I am almost eighty!) I have gratefully found community in the Sanctuary of the Open Heart, like yourselves, who also want to honor our Mother Gaia in this tangible way, to meet at the times that are most potently impactful on these four major Turns of the Wheel of the Year. I always wonder why there aren’t more beings who choose to come play and celebrate life together, live and in person. So, I would like to make a very personal invitation to each of you to come experience a live celebration, to feel how uplifting and inspiring these celebrations are to our hearts and spirits! 
   I remember a time in Avalon where beings traveled for days to come to these seasonal Turns. In the Bay area at least it takes only a few minutes to gather. This time we are meeting in the East bay at the Yurt Temple. Please come play with us in consciousness to celebrate this harvest time of year together! Let us remember and honor Gaia as our Mother and honor the body of the Earth as sacred. Please come share in Her Harvest celebration! And wherever you find yourselves, please celebrate this important seasonal Turn on Gaia!
In Infinite Love…ariel
When: Sat. September 24th NOON (gates open at 11:30)
Where: Yurt Temple Berkeley, CA. (directions given when you register)
What to bring: Please bring an autumnal harvest feast item to share after ceremony,
musical instruments, and ANY offerings in poem, song, dance to co-create the magic, around the theme of re-balancing, re-harmonizing with the Earth!
If in your joy, please bring a symbol or image, poem or song to share what you are harvesting at this time that you want to celebrate with community!!
Who: We welcome all genders and children who can hold ceremonial space.
Please join us for this delightful shared, supportive community celebration!
Heart donations gratefully accepted!
Beloved Community,
Perspicasity is more subtle than simply demonstrating high intelligence or mental acuity. It implies a penetrating aspect of intelligence that more than soley reasons and “understands things”. It is one thing to have the intelligence to reason and understand something, it is another to penetrate the more subtle aspects of that which is perceived… to be able to have the refined discernment to compare and contrast those differences with the subtlety of penetrating intelligence. Perspicasity moves more into the realm of the way intuition works. Come to this Soul Salon to explore this powerful concept and in the process perhaps become more perspicacious! We will explore Complexity theory, the scientific realm called “the edge of chaos” to find new ways through the present global eco-system collapse that is the epitome of that realm. Rather than capitulating to helplessness, lets discover how can we celebrate and move with this transition phase that is between stagnation and anarchy toward spontaneous, adaptive solutions? Join us for this exploration on: Wednesday, October 5th, 2022 at Noon Pacific!
The Dream Weaver Circle
Do you dream vividly and garner guidance and support from your dreams? If so, consider joining Priest/ess’ from around the world in the Dream Weaver Circle to share and connect around dreams. We will hold a zoom call once a moon to look at and garner the wisdom from our personal and collective dreams. We will also set the patterning to connect etherically in Dream Temples. Our next Dream Weaver circle will be Friday, October 7th, 2022 at 12pm Pacific.
Throughout all times, Priest/ess’ have been sensitive receptors for the Greater Divine Dream, dreaming itself through us. They have functioned as oracles seeing into the non-linear matrix of time and space, as sensitive instruments aware of a broader spectrum of quantum possibilities manifesting. They have been messengers for the archetypal realms who interface and seed divine, creative possibilities through the non-linear nature of dreams. For the collective community, oftentimes they were harbingers of events providing an immediate opportunity to act on the messages delivered from higher realms. It is for all these reasons, that we gather as a Dream Weaver Circle. If, as an aspect of your Priest/esshood, you perceive of yourself as a conscious Dreamer in these reflections, then join us in service, by submitting dreams that have this mythic, collective, archetypal and transpersonal quality. 
 This Dream Weaver’s circle focuses on dreams that are archetypal and mytho-poetic in nature. It is the intention of this offering to look for the larger patterns in the collective Dreamfield that are emerging through the lens of the conscious dreaming of the priest/esses in the circle. As well, themes can be suggested for our conscious dreaming of reality, that can and do affect the collective Dreamfield matrix.
   It is not the intention of this circle to analyze or necessarily even to respond to the dreams, as each recipient will garner his/her own wisdom, inspiration and gifts from sharing a given dream. However, if you choose to respond by lucidly entering the Dreamtime to share and commune telepathically, that is certainly being encouraged!
Please enjoy going to have a look at the new Dream Weaver offering on the Sanctuary website, where you can post dreams, make comments and find the schedule for our once a moon zoom call Dream Weaver circles! Click HERE!
If you are interested in connecting with other dreamers between moonly zoom calls please join our facebook group: Click here to join Facebook group
Enjoy your time in The Living Library Dear One.

Please join us for Drink from Her Well, a joyful guided exploration to Her Holy Waters.
Offered Wednesdays near the new moon every month, from 12-1 p.m. Pacific
Wednesday, October 26th, 2022 at Noon Pacific
A Personal Invitation from Ariel
Dear Ones…
Drink from Her Well is a direct demonstration and training for how to work with collective alchemy! It means so much for the collective awakening, that we hold these alchemical circles, both physically and etherically, beyond ego mind and in Divine Love’s name. It is so critical now, that the Divine Feminine rise in alignment and integrity with the most expanded viewpoint of what is being asked of us at this intense time of planetary transformation. 
Please join us for the next Drink from Her Well!
In Her Name,
Inspiring wonder, astonishment, miracles!
Dear ones,

 Have you always searched for the deeper meaning in things?
Do you wonder about the larger patterns and how everything fits together?
 Where do you have a place to bounce the Mystery around in a circle of magical beings?
(These live circles are supportive of the Sanctuary Instagram page, where you can play the Mystery Mirabilis game of responding to the mystery questions for points toward a prize. Sound fun? If so, join us on Saturday, April 16 at Noon Pacific. (Accruing points towards a free deck of her Consciousness Koan Cards!) Mostly, we just want you to have fun playing with consciousness and deepening with the Mystery!

Join us Sunday, October 2nd at 4PM PST
In delight, Ariel

Gather ‘Round the Fires of Consciousness to Explore and Share Awareness
Dear Ones,
From our first two “Books as Sacrament” circles, as a follow up to the mystical map presented in LSD and the Mind of the Universe, and Nada Brahma: The World is Sound, this third book: On Becoming an Alchemist by Catherine MacCoun, is like a practical “how to” manual for navigating dimensionally, in the direction these other two books were pointing us. It is “about” alchemy, put into a very expanded consciousness context.
 Alchemy is usually seen as a very arcane and inscrutably mysterious coded language. This book makes it much more user friendly and accessible to decode the wisdom held within alchemy! Catherine MacCoun gives us wisdom from the point of view that alchemical magic never defies the laws of nature, but rather observes the workings of those laws at an earlier stage than is evident to the physical senses. She goes into depth about the subtle senses that pick up where the physical senses leave off. She shares about the perception that when journeying in the vertical dimensions, there is a desire to make horizontal sense of what is perceived in the vertical and it is what differentiates mysticism from gnosis. To come back from the vertical with something intelligible to report is the way of the sage or seer. It is that ability to come back from dimensional experience with gnosis (direct knowing) and be able to express it to others in some form, is what we will be looking at together in this “Books as Sacrament” circle!
