The Golden Purifier – The Turkey Vulture
They show up so often and so powerfully for me, of course I have researched their deeper meaning. Occasionally a solo bird, but more often they travel in groups of 3 or 4. The scientific Latin name for vulture is Catharsis Aura ~ Golden Purifier. The Cherokee know the Vulture as 'Peace Eagle', for the Turkey Vulture Kills Nothing.
“The job vulture performs is a sacred service for all animal life forms. The toxins, pathogens and diseases that are possible as animals decompose and rot is substantial. The vulture was designed to clean this up. And with this purpose it accomplishes the Creators will with honor and no complaints.
The vulture does what needs to be done. It cleans up, protects, and is connected to the water as its guardian. To some vulture is ugly, but upon the invisible air it rides the current defying gravity with beauty and grace. Barley flapping a wing. Vulture teaches us that nasty jobs of great service are rewarded with great gifts. The vulture is often looked down upon. However, the vulture in fact, looks down on you. The vulture sees all and knows what is done to the Earthly Mother. He is special friend to hawk, eagle, and raven.
The vulture mates for life, and lives in community upon a communal roost each night. This roost location varies each night. Each vulture 'clan' cleaning the territory as it sees fit. With communication that is transacted from many miles away, a vulture can see the flight patterns of its brethren, with eyesight ten times better than our own (not verified). A clan chieftan sends a signal that is relayed each evening, and a roost is selected. These roosts can be constant for many years and even generations. A system of roosts helps to ensure that the land is purified systematically. The roost is usually on a ridge that overlooks a river, and is normally in a spot that receives the last of the days sun, as well the first at sunrise. Each morning, the vulture clan turns to face the sacred Sun. Warming the feathers together in union before heading to work.”
I started writing this blog back in April…and I picked it up again on this auspicious equinox day, as they are ongoing active and with me again. I was called to active the mountains in my region to turn on to their full crystalline capacities. And network them. I was drawn to a triangle between Mystery Hill, New Hampshire (aka America’s Stonehenge), Mount Monadnock New Hampshire and my home region. I felt it was important to clear out and align these sites prior to equinox, so worked with this most of last week. I visited Mt Wachusett first – the master crystal for the grids in my area, and saw several riding the thermal currents that day. I saw many on my trip to and fro Mystery Hill a few days later. Then, when I was working with a team mate using a conversation to clear out a particularly dense band of distortion on the grids the day before equinox, just as we were declaring freedom from old loops, there my buddies were again, right overhead. Golden Purifiers!! So powerful!!
I have also been making links between my animal friends that show up for me in person here earth plane, with the star wisdom and star light codes from the constellations. Like, when swans show up by day, I might find a nighttime encounter and message from the Cygnus constellation in the night sky. Or when a constellation is particularly active and “talkative” in the night sky, an animal friend representative shows up the next day in the field.
Last night I had the pleasure of luxuriating under the deep dark night sky, and was celebrating the tail end of summer, the last summer night of this year under the Summer Triangle. Vega, Altair and Deneb.
Deneb is in the Cygnus/Swan Constellation, and at the swan tall is the active North American Nebula, which was up at zenith/high point last night. Altair is the brightest star in Aquila, The Eagle/Hawk Constellation.
And Vega is in the constellation of Lyra. Vega was the first star that drew me in last night and reminded me to pay attention. It was coding and dancing brilliantly with me all night. I had a super amazing night communing and communicating with the stars overall, and when I was going over things this morning, I had a- oh hey, I should research and see if there is a Vulture Constellation.
Sure enough, there is – and it’s Lyra and Vega. “Lyra was often represented on star maps as a vulture or an eagle carrying a lyre, and hence is sometimes referred to as Vultur Cadens or Aquila Cadens ("Falling Vulture" or "Falling Eagle"), respectively.” Well alright alright!!
May you work with nature and purify with golden light!!
