November Karaya 2017 message

Bibi Rixturey's November Karaya Message

November’s full moon (karaya) will be on the 4th will be larger and brighter than average as it is closer to Earth than normal—only December’s full moon will be nearer and look larger.

In the Caribbean, this time of year meant that the wet season was ending and also was normally the end of active hurricane season. This year, we look forward to the end of a hurricane season that has brought much destruction and tragedy to the Caribbean and Gulf Coast.  

The word “hurricane” is based on the Taino word “huraca’n” -- hu = breath or spirit, and acan = around the center. Hurricanes are part of the natural cycle of nature and can be considered a cleansing agent.

“The huraca’n goddess was Guabancex, and her assistants Guatabá and Coatrisquie. Guabancex is described at godslaidbare.com as “Taino Storm Goddess” and “The Lady of the Winds,” and at ancientantilles.com as “The Hurricane Bringer.” Guatabá heralded the storm’s arrival with lightning and thunder; Coatrisquie brought flood. A common depiction of huraca’n shows the angry face of Guabancex in the center with arms crazily flailing in an S-shape, remarkably predictive of the modern meteorological symbol for a hurricane or tropical storm.” (https://indiancountrymedianetwork.com/news/hurricane-from-the-goddess-guabancex-to-fierce-irene/)

What does this mean spiritually? Hurricanes are nature’s way of achieving balance in between the atmosphere and the oceans. It is a cleansing. Our ancestors were aware of this phenomenon and prepared for it.  The plants that are native to the Caribbean have roots and systems to let them withstand the wind and water. Some plants might even need the occasional hurricane to help them strengthen.

The increased strength of the hurricanes this year let us know that Mother Earth is working hard to regain balance. Humans are destroying that balance and are doing little to restore it.

We as women are the keepers of the force of life and like Guabancex we have the power to destroy, cleanse and bring balance to ourselves, our families and our communities. Destruction of thoughts and habits that are of no use and hold us back is a positive use of this power. Our roots need to be strong to withstand the dangerous “winds” around us. We can cleanse our spirits and access our spiritual potentials in the best of ways to be positive service to all our relations.

This Full Moon may the teachings of the force and power of Huracan help you to remember that you can create the life you want.

In the spirit of our ancestors, Seneko kakona, hahom.

Relief Brigade for Boriken

We want to again Thank all of you who have donated and Thank those of you who we know will donate :) 
We still have a ways to go . Please donate any amount is appreciated and will help us reach our goal. It will be months if not years before our communities can get back on their feet. Many are still in shelters with no home to go back to. So many have lost everything just everything. 

They still have to rebuild their homes and some may not be able to . All have to replant their conucos (food gardens) and with luck be able to self sustain themselves once more. A little help from you will go a long way. 

For now they need immediate help ,Food ,medicines and the tools to rebuild and the seeds to replant.
