The Eclipse Vortex & Shamanic DNA

Filed in Full Moons

Usually i use the term “Eclipse Season” to describe the six or so weeks that usually brings a Solar and a Lunar Eclipse. Then i use “Eclipse Zone” to describe the actual days around it. But this Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Leo (impending) is so batty, it’s an Eclipse Vortex.  I literally do not recall an Eclipse Full Moon energy so weird, radically insightful and just stressful.

But it has led to me having some interesting chats with my Druid and the one of the things he said to me is vis a vis the Ancestral Hauntings post from last year.  He feels like there is a lot more ancestor energy around in the astral realm this year then ever before. Not recent ancestors, but further back ones, “who lived well and died well.”  He said he has been picking up on this since Xmas. And suddenly i twigged; Saturn In Capricorn, the Time God in his home sign, with Pluto also there – how rare is that? Saturn/Capricorn Vibe has many themes but one of them is lineage and ancestors.

There is this sort of “rule” floating about in pagan and new age circles which tries to dictate that people should align with the deities most linked to them ethnically, not try to co-opt the pantheon or elements of a system not theirs by “right” – sort of a magical nationalism or something.  Personally, I am ambivalent about this; what if you feel spiritually aligned with – say – Ancient Egyptian energies, as i always have, even if there is zero trace of that heritage in your blood? Does it really matter in the broad cosmic scheme if your incarnation in this life is of whatever nationality or race?

But having said that, the DNA testing does now make it super easy to identify your origins in that way. I once even read an article – or did i just dream this? – that said past existences could be woven into the strands of the DNA double helix. Is there a gene some people have for being magic? And if so could scientists identify it or would they just call it something else? What if neuro-divergency were just the current era’s word for witches, mediums and magicians?

Thoughts?

What of ancestral heritage and karma?
A self-proclaimed Native American shaman (he is not NA nor a shaman) conned many people, stole their identities, elder abuse and finally was sent to jail for theft.
I tried to warn others, but they would not listen. Twenty years he stole, lied and manipulated people for his own gain including date rape, child molestation.
I feel karma finally caught up with him.

Not keen on blood ties- too much mayyhem done in the name of tribes.

Dion Fortune advised “stick to your own kind” rule when exploring esoterica. She lectured about group souls and (blatant stereotypes) in justifying the East West divide. I chalked it up to the Glory Britannia age she lived in – early to mid 20th C.

Alice Bailet wrote about the Seven Rays and affiliations based on them-

The energy match of soul tribes surpasses blood, I think. I think 11th and 4th H speak to affinities.

My heritage is Celtic – Irish via my great-grandmother and Welsh via my great-grandfather. It’s funny – since I’ve been in North Cyprus, I’ve felt a very strong connection to Ireland, would love to visit it but finances and mobility issues mitigate against that. Instead, it’s as if the fae have journeyed to me to inspire my digital art, something that’s developed here in my time in the island. I have no memories of my lineage on either my Irish or Welsh side – my father was estranged from his family while I only know my Irish-heritage grandmother and no-one… Read more »

There are family members who are closely connected but not to my immediate bloodlines, who are rumoured to have blood from a particular group of people that they strongly deny. They were brought up in a generation and place that openly ostracised and discriminated against that group. This is a common feature of the history: people had love/sex relationships that were taboo and actively erased. Also there are others in my fam who have discovered a bloodline that has never been previously mentioned, and who resonate very strongly, as it answers something for them. In contrast, my own immediate bloodline… Read more »

The mention of ‘Bloodline’ reminded me of Kim Falconer’s trilogy of books about knowledge ‘being in the blood’. And what were those books about the bloodline of the Grail, that the Grail WAS the DNA.

Funny you write this. Since the last eclipse season, I have been feeling my dad’s side of the family. My mom is almost 93 years old. She is German and Swedish (and I found out, also Norweigian but dont tell her). My dad has almost pure Norweigian roots…yet his father and his mother look very…native American. My paternal mother and grandmother look very Asian too…and my grandmother was well over 6 foot tall (6’2″?) Yeah, giant.

All the more evidence so to speak about karmic families. I have no doubt my karma/sacred contract is with my adoptive family. Jason Miller (strategic sorcery) suggests that adopted peeps have both biological and adopted ancestors surrounding one. I like that!

Very cool. I also learned Saami may be located in Alaska too. Since they are navigators who trek thousands of miles across the Arctic circle, maybe that is how their genes came to North America? And then downwards to Mexico? Another theory is that European Spanish intermarries with Saami Swede descent in Europe, then a generation or two later they immigrated to Mexico….which probably is more logical. The oppression of Saami started in Sweden during the 1600s as nationalism began getting established.Elimination of herding rights forced many to move south to the coasts of Norway (or Russia or Helsinki…) and… Read more »

Although I was drawn to Wicca as a teenager, I didn’t feel a strong connection to the Celtic myths. I loved Lord of the Rings for its otherworldliness. However, I always felt a strong connection with India: its art, its spirituality & particularly its goddesses. England, Ireland, India, Portugal and Scotland are some of the countries in my DNA, so why didn’t the Celtic half predominate? I really resonate with what you are saying. Lately I have been discovering so much more about my Indian family and heritage & learning a great deal about myself in the process. I feel… Read more »

FYI, not all non-native shamanic healers do this. 🙂 Legitimate shamanic practitioners receive permission to share their teachings with others – if they don’t, they’re usurpers and fakes. Not everyone calling themselves a shaman *is* a shaman; it is a title of honor bestowed upon one by the community and not a mantle one simply takes up. It takes YEARS – often decades – of training by indigenous Elders and those who are the real deal can trace the lineage of their teachings and do so reverently. They give credit where it is due and compensate their teachers accordingly, as… Read more »

The book ‘Urban Shaman’ has a lot to answer for 🙂
‘The Secret Science of Miracles’ by Max Freedom Long, (published in 1948) would have been initiated and given permission to record all he learned from the Kahuna’s in Hawaii.
Chapter one headed ‘The discovery that may change the world’.He would have been initiated as he mentions the ‘secret within the secret’
Yes,years decades a lifetime and beyond to learn.

I’m getting more shamanic, portal, whiffs than usual, as opposed ancestral. But am also thinking a lot about my own lineage and influences. Been feeling a mega shift on the horizon since December. This questions brought to my mind what some healer/shaman colleagues of mine might say about ancestors v past lives vibe (aka contact with spirit/energy?) and it would be that the energy is the same, we may overlay a druid or a taoist monk or an Egyptian priestess or a wolf onto the spirit..

Sometime between Thanksgiving & Christmas, I had a dream about my great-grandfather Lester who died 2 months before I was born. In the dream I was watching a show on Netflix about his life with one of my friends. At one point my friend asked, “What is he going to do next?” I answered, “I never met him, so I’m not sure.

Re the ‘cultural appropriation’ argument.
I can well understand the anger etc from certain groups who might feel that their religious activities have been borrowed – with limited understanding of their original intent.
But If you have a connection with a certain face of the Divinity, then its no one’s business but your own.

Reminds me of some relatives who clearly stated that i did not look or behave enough as they deemed fit, largely due to the blood mix. And also of the relatives who felt the outsider was much closer to them than the family member, and embraced that married relative and also recognised me as one who had gone from them.

1) Yes, ancestors are around.

I have started to visit my grandfather daily. 3) I’m a Leo and six weeks of Eclipse Season also sounds like a thing. My Eclipse is seasoned with hyperthyroidsm which started showing signs mid-December. I strongly believe that the symptoms will quickly dissolve into the ether after the Eclipse but the thing is intensifying as we approach Eclipse and I would describe the… Read more »

Years ago, when I lived high in the Border Ranges of New South Wales, I decided to do a ritual honouring my aunt whose name I bear. She died when she was six of diphtheria and my mum promised my grandmother she’d name her firstborn girl after Maureen, which was me. But I’d never liked being named after someone who’d died which is why I eventually switched to Mo, the short version of Maureen. But those mountains, the caldera of an ancient volcano, were so powerful and one day I felt the urge to do a ceremony to honour my… Read more »

Hi Crazy Crone – I have done a similar ritual around my great grandmother whose existence had been almost erased and whose first name had literally been forgotten by her grandchildren (!!!). I felt a connection and became absorbed/preoccupied with her story and was able to reconstruct much about her life and passing which culminated in a ritual at her graveside. She needed to be reinstated into the family story and so I formally took hers as my middle name. Understanding her story gave me so much insight into some of the dark dynamics of my family of origin, and… Read more »

To me, this idea is simply logical. Why wouldn’t humans have a kind of ancestral memory imbedded in their DNA when so many different animal species absolutely do? I’m probably mixing up the species and the tool usage here so don’t quote me on this, but there are ravens who know how to use twigs as tools even though they have never been taught, monkeys who know how to use hollowed sticks as straws to suck up ants and these seem to be skills/memories that are based down via the gene pool. Why wouldn’t Magic/shamanism be the same? Magic/Shamanism to… Read more »

Yes. I remember reading years ago in the book Clan of the Cave Bear the idea that Neanderthal children were not taught how to make tools, select food sources etc but reminded. It was assumed they knew what their genetic lineage knew when born and only needed prompting to spark the knowledge from memory.

Purely in the interest of promoting further discourse on this topic, personally I don’t know that I subscribe to that philosophy – shamans (I mean as in legit healers; not just people with visionary/spiritual abilities which IMO is Neptune’s turf) may be born but it’s not the ancestral ties I necessarily see present. Sometimes yes, but frequently I find it’s not linked to the DNA or even ethnicity at all; besides, who is to say the soul hasn’t spent other incarnations in other lands and then carries that memory with them into the current lifetime?

To answer “….Does it really matter in the broad cosmic scheme if your incarnation in this life is of whatever nationality or race?”. Of course it does, otherwise you wouldn’t have been born into it! In questioning this life’s incarnation you must logically also question any past life incarnation. This life, along with its ancestral links must be just as relevant and important as any of the past for they are what you are passing on to those that follow you. The past is always with us in the present…..somewhere.

Ancestral Hauntings and vivid ancestor memories are very very real. I’ve certainly had a few. It took me by surprise because I knew the visions were not from a past life.

The modern technology for DNA testing also confirmed some things I had only been suspect of, as I had been adopted and unsure of paternity.

Makes sense…theres a growing interest in epigenetics, which is tracing the effects of genetically inherited traumas to a lineage and how it affects gene expression.

Yup there is research showing that people whose recent ancestors starved pack on weight/get diabetes while people whose ancestors had ample food can maintain their weight as you’d expect.

While I understand people’s affinity toward various ancient cultures,I find it imperative to not disregard our current social identities, and then use this information to inform how you engage with these cultures. Just because you have an affinity to a culture or place from long ago doesn’t absolve you of any of the privilege that you may have within this lifetime.

It’s the consciousness (apparently and according to some schools of buddhism) that reincarnates and yet consciousness can be in cells as well as outside the body. The this life nationalist stuff seems wacky if we reincarnate. I will not be surprised if the past lives show up in DNA but ponder these as beyond lineage… No matter how far back they trace ancestry. fascinating idea!

The August eclipses brought up lots of issues for me around age, identity and my place within the generations. It was heavy going. They felt personal. There were no surprise events – those had been in the preceding weeks – it was my reactions that unsettled me. I felt overwhelmed and confused. So I’m a little nervous about these; so far the only thing that’s happened is I’ve committed to a creative practice, but one of the themes I’m exploring is…ancestral imprints.

Right-on D,

I’ve always imagined we’re the sum of every ancestor (essential nature) then shaped by our current environment (existential nature, astrologically inclusive). I mean, it’s logical as.

Undertook some heavy research into knowledge at uni. My premise stated that we’re born with it. It’s different from instinct. I reckon we – the soul – lands at birth good to go. Naturally, parentals part is to nurture and protect as much and if possible, but that aforementioned essence is irrefutable.

Our life, a creative non-fiction novel in the never-ending ancestral story series – you nailed it right there.

I feel such a connection to my ancestors and I have tracked the astrology going back four generations on my Mums side and its phenomenal to see the link ups both in signs between charts as well as transit charts that had significant placements when key events like migrations or death occured. We are cell in the body of cells and recent research in epigentics backs this all up. See Mark Wolynns excellent book It Didnt Start With You to understand how we carry ancestral issues onwards.

We all split off from the main consciousness on a fractal and of course we meet up with those who we split away from. You immediately know that this is one of mine. A previous neighbour or ‘soul mate’. On another level I see DNA as time capsule or time travel that is in matter just balled up in a squiggle. I no doubt am very like my maternal great grand mother. Never knew her but I resonate like mad.

I have believed in reincarnation for awhile now, & it just makes sense to me that souls might choose to stay in the same biological family in order to “finish what they started.” Why start over on the other side of the world when you can just come back as your own descendant? (Unless of course a soul was not following their true path and needed a clean slate.)

saturnplutoflux
saturnplutoflux

what about when your ancestry is an international mish mash of different nationalities, ethnicities and religions where it seems like at least one member of the family moves country/continent every generation and is determined to piss off their parents by “marrying out”? Mine have been doing this as far back as my mum can go on both sides (she’s really into the genealogy thing)

Then you probably have a very healthy gene code. The wider the mix the stronger and healthier the offspring. That type of behavior, mixing far and wide shows firstly a healthy attitude to ‘the other’ and probably means you are a healthy well balanced lineage.

The 70s. Maybe ? My uncle introduced me to the club scene at that time. Do you remember a place called Martins in Oxford St. ? Were you a beach babe at Bondi ? Did I throw myself at your feet and beg for your attention ? 😉
Good to hear from you lovely one xxx

A long long time ago a past life healer suggested i was my own ancestor, and my ancestor’s ancestor!

Blew my mind, and sometimes still does, but also seems kind of normal. There’s no automatic superiority in having lived first, or in inheriting other memories. It’s got to be a cycle or helix, at the least.

Well with ancestry from Africa, Europe and India I am at home in a VERY big tribe 🙂 I like the picture you paint of ancestors meeting again and Again to support each other in our ascension. I «carried » both my parents in this life time meaning I was more a shaman and healer to them than their child. Now they are gone, thankfully. I realised when they passed that a lot of emotional feminine and masculine energies, activated by ancestors, had to be cleared so it could be carried forward in a more healthy way. Do you perceive yourselves… Read more »

Great post MM. Thank you for bringing this to attention. I agree with your druid friend – I have also felt it since about Xmax and more potent this month!! Going back many generations and some need to dwell and research about it!

Funny how sometimes in life we want to forge ourselves apart from our families, and at other times feel drawn to them. The living and the dead 🙂

my grandmother and great aunt’s gifts to the family this year were our own copies of the family geneology work they’ve been doing the last decade or so. DNA testing and detailed birth/death records going back almost 700 years! spent hours looking at it while visiting family and thinking on it since. No surprises but seeing the continuity, page after page, the names and geo travels was very powerful

On Thursday just hours after the eclipse I am flying home to my Aunties funeral on friday, my cousin from my dads side is getting married that day, and my sister in law is 2 weeks pregnant – I cant even image how busy it is on the ancestral realm.

Before I took my Autosomnal DNA test last year (and before I dove into genealogy) I “guessed” my ethnicity estimates. I was 100% correct and 1% off. In fact, FB just shuffled my guess post writtern this day last year this morning 🙂

Autosomnal ethnicity estimates only reveal the last 5-8 generations. But I do believe memories live and our bones and blood speak – IF you are interested in listening 🙂

To the ancestors – now back to transcribing death records into the ancestral database. Saturn just entered my 8th in Capricorn where Underworld Pluto is keeping it company 😀

P.S. Y and mt DNA is more ancient and my Dad has y matches from Europe to the Levant. I’ll leave it at that 🙂

Super interesting scientific distinctions of different types of DNA. I felt for a long time that DNA studies were limited, and in part by research bias: we find only what we’re looking for, and relegate other findings to the side.

There’s also the idea of ancestral human cradle civilisations, before the geographical spreading. But geographical wandering has always been part of human nature, as the clan has.

Astro-interesting that you have strong Taurus identity, too. The body, for one, the earth and nature for another.

Seems more than plausible 🙂

I also feel the ancestors around. My Moon/Neptune are at 8 Capricorn, Saturn at 0 Cap. I’m feeling much more comfy hanging with the ancients atm.

Oh.. this eclipse will be conjunct my MC/IC at 11 Leo/Aqua, and my daughter’s Moon at 11 Aqua.

I’m very much focusing on bringing the higher self into my physical body. It feels really amazing. Shamanic, yes. I’m mysteriously ill (stress related to Internet trolls… fancy that, Aquarius SN and all…). Managing ok.

Well hello there, I have a 12 Leo MC, Moon Neptune in Sag, and a daughter with 10 aqua sun and 11 aqua mars.

Omg…I am feeling the eclipse energy and I feel like “shamanic” is the best way to deal with the stress rn.

IDK about ancestral hauntings, but something is UP.
