It’s the New Moon in Sagittarius

Wednesday, November 23 in the Northern Hemisphere is the New Moon in Sagittarius. Sagittarius is the half human, half horse archetype with the bow and arrow known for hitting it’s target with precision. It is considered the bridge between the earth & the spiritual world or heavens, about abundance in all forms, about everything that is expansive, a tendency toward over indulgence and influences to explore the off the beaten track path. As you come out of the Scorpio Lunar cycle of death & rebirth this past lunar cycle which sent us deep into our truth of self for lessons & healings, it is a good time to step forward as your changed self. This new moon comes with powerful influences to now be who you intend to be as a result of what you have just learned. Shed the old shell to become the revised self closer to living your authentic truth of self. If your growth put you in grief last cycle, Sagittarius can assist in how to process your feelings in a lighter way & feel a sense of expanded purpose of what you are learning. It is a perfect time to move into another direction, feel joyous/enthusiastic, party, but be careful not to overindulge.

This lunar cycle comes with very powerful influences to manifest what it is your heart desires. The planets are aligned in a way to deliver what it is you intend for as you set your New Moon intentions. In fact, astrologers say, “go big or go home!” But with Mercury & Venus alignments, be careful to ensure your mind and heart are in agreement with your desires or you will end up sending yourself off into another direction of which you are not intending. It will deliver your energy & motivations based on what you think and feel. When you plant the seeds out of alignment with your true intentions, the results may not be what you dreamed of. As Dr.Michael Lennox stated “know what you feel & feel what you know,” in other words – stick to that formula. Take advantage of setting intention along the lines of travel, education, expansion of all sorts – including structure & manifestation of any desires you have. Sagittarius is the spiritual seeking sign, so you can also set intentions of that sort. Just remember to pick intentions that your mind and heart are in alignment with. If you are not worthy of what you desire, it will challenge what you receive. Or if you are trying to accomplish something you really are not emotionally behind, it won’t work out.

Lastly, know that these intentions can take some time to manifest, so be patient and also be prepared for when they do, because they could materialize fast and furious, so be prepared. Stay open-hearted and be open to try something new. When you intend it is more important to surrender to the form of what materializes than to expect something specific. The universe knows what you need to accomplish what you want, so be open. It is equally important to be grateful for what arrives.
After you set your intentions, set them in motion by feeling & experiencing who you will be, visualize and simulate the part. Also feel the gratefulness of receiving it in advance.

Let’s see what the cards say & ask: How do I manifest what is in my heart and mind moving me into the future successfully? I drew a card from “The Shaman’s Dream” by Alberto Villoldo & Collette Baron-Reid. The card I drew was “The Perfect Storm.” The essential meaning is: The courage to step into life. “I say” this card sends a warning that if you are too far off course from what is true in your heart and mind, you may get caught up in the gusts and swept away, off course from your true path, as the power of this manifestation can be fast & turbulent. You don’t want to get swept away from the core of what is important to your heart, chasing someone else’s dream. Heed moving in the direction of what others may think or suggest for their approval, but be open to feel in your heart if the messages that come are true to your desires. Act on that which you feel alignment in your thoughts & heart. If you follow something you desire but don’t believe you can do it, you will be sidelined into something you are not ready to have or not want. But if you feel confident about a newly desired manifestation, follow it with curiosity, explore it, express gratefulness and celebrate the victory when it unfolds. For you have intended & manifested what is true to your heart and mind with patience.

Peace & Love, Susan

Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Americans!

Full Moon in Taurus

Tuesday, Nov. 8, 2022 in the Northern Hemiphere is the Full Moon & a lunar eclipse. This Full moon in Taurus is about finding middle ground, aligning the mind with the heart, forgiving and letting go of the past so that you can move forward more connected as your true, authentic self. The eclipse pushes us to let go of the past, to restart from a more pure form of truth and raise our vibration to a higher level. Once we let go of our thoughts & emotions that hold us back because of past wounds or what we have learned to fear, we can be free to flow with our soul, our hearts desire, with love at the helm. Living at a higher vibration, hearing and being guided by spirit more powerfully, resulting in more magical moments fulfilling our intentions in life. The Sun in Scorpio & planetary influences are highlighting the feels of our hearts and what we truly desire. Taurus is about love and peace, while Scorpio is deep thought, death and rebirth and a willingness to do things without fear. The eclipse brings the energy to let go and restart from a better place. When we let these wounds go and connect with our truth guided by love, we are able to forgive, heal and move forward at a faster speed into the future as the North Node (future) and Uranus (great awakener) are still around since August helping to propel us into the future. We are finishing up what we have been working on this past year with giving and receiving love, learning to accept the truth of our desires and flowing with our intuition toward our destiny. Some of us have been propelled more strongly that others, but no matter the hardship or awakening, we are all more aware because of our journey. We all have the ability to let go, heal & forgive to recognize the path forward is one guided by our hearts and love. Connecting to spirit for that is our true partner in life, our innate wisdom.

Use this Full Moon to let go of the fears of the past, the wounds from failures and the after thoughts that cause pain, humility and paralysis from taking action toward your dreams or cause you to backtrack on progress. It’s the afterthoughts of our choices that steer us astray. Putting acceptance from others before our own passions that swerve us away from what we are destined for. Don’t let fear be the guide, turn off your busy mind and emotions stimulated by life’s chaotic surroundings, learn to meditate to open space for spirit to flow through and provide guidance. Talk to spirit and offer prayer for yourself and others on a daily basis. Make yourself available to be of service for the good of all and be grateful for the gifts and goodness that comes into your life. Take a chance by following your spiritual guidance, intuition and truth……flow, be surprised by the synchronicities that occur as a result of it. Nothing new can happen until you stop looking outside yourself for the answers. The answers are within your heart, your natural self. Let the old die so the new can blossom. It is time to let the inner wisdom guide and to acknowledge the gifts received with gratitude.

Let’s see what the cards have to say about what we need to let go of to connect with spirit to live our true desires of our hearts. I drew “The Fortunes Wheel” from the Shaman’s Dream by Collette Baron-Reid & Alberto Villoldo. The essential meaning from the card reads – Luck and Right Timing. It says to hold your desires as your intentions and it becomes true. The Fortune’s Wheel comes unannounced. Notice the signs, the coincidences and the seemingly magical events. Use the creative power of the Fortunes Wheel for the benefit of others and the gifts will be returned to you tenfold. Recall you boldest and noblest longing & invite it into your life. I say, it is time to awaken what is within your heart that you have longed to take action on toward your truth. Open your mind to accept what is true and truth will open it’s doors to your life. Forgive the misgivings of actions of the past and use the wisdom gained to guide actions forward. Open yourself to serve others while fulfilling your dreams. Let go of what is wrong with the world and see what is right, let your truth empower the energy flowing toward the good!

Peace & Love, Susan

New Moon in Scorpio

The New Moon in Scorpio is Tuesday, October 25th in the Northern Hemisphere. As New Moons go, it is a time to write intentions for what it is you intend for in your future. Scorpio is considered one of the most intense influencing archetypes by some astrologers and is about death & rebirth. So we not only are creating new intentions, but are also focusing on what it is we need to let go of. Kind of like the New Moon and Full Moon in one. Letting things that no longer work die within yourself to be reborn for what better serves you moving forward. This New Moon focuses on going within your heart and mind to see what no longer aligns with the desired changes you want for your life, a new path forward toward a better reality fulfilling your dreams. This entails communication, relationships, community, giving and receiving love. When you do an inventory of what you are ready to give up to become your reborn self, then your life will begin to change. How you see the world, how you look at others, how you label things external to your heart, cleaning up your ego, the actions needing improvement in order to get what you desire. Nothing magically happens without acknowledging what no longer fits into your desired self. So when you are focusing on your new intentions, be sure to acknowledge & be honest about what must die in order to become who you say you want to be, to have the life you desire.

With Mars presently sitting still before it goes retrograde soon until March, it is a time to get in alignment of walking your talk. Connecting to your personal life purpose, your Dharma. With eclipse season launching as well, things are amplified and intensified in strength and speed. There has to be acknowledgement & a willingness to allow change and transformation at a deep level. Remembering that everything starts within and projects out to the world which formulates opportunity and change. Then realigning yourself with the world you create. Thus it could mean leaving friendships/relationships, thought patterns, reactions or actions that no longer align with who you are & to enter into the reborn reality of what you want and desire. For instance, you may find that certain people in your life may have been very good for you at one point in your life, but they are no longer aligning with the direction you are moving. Inventory the way you think, judge, finger point, shame, control, co-depend, over extend, etc. & recognize how it affects the balance in your life. New life comes by acknowledging all the things in life that no longer fit and carrying out the change without having to get acknowledgement from others. It is about finding your tribe and being a part of it somewhere in the middle without “having to be” the best or the worst. Just being your true self with heartfelt intentions without attachments, flowing and trusting. It is a true form or reform.

Take the time to rest, let life flow through you. A busy mind can block you from inner wisdom. It is also important to acknowledge some of the things that are happening in the world are a result of the collective. You will know soon enough what needs to change & learn from it, if you give yourself time to clear your mind, move away from all that life throws at you that involves chaos, confusion and resistance. Dream, imagine, meditate to open your mind for wisdom and spirit to flow and get in touch with your heart to align with your true intentions. This is truly a time to inventory the inner so that the outer may manifest toward your dreams. Your end result should be about walking your talk!

Let’s see what the cards say you need to know in order to identify what needs to die as we set our intentions toward rebirth. The card I drew is from the ‘Wisdom of the Oracle ‘deck by Collette Baron-Reid. The card is “the Fates.” The essential meaning of this card is fate, karma, acceptance that there are things you cannot change and knowing what those things are. The book says the Serenity Prayer sums up the meaning of this card: “God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference. It may not be in your cards to understand why certain events occurred, but you can accept the mystery and work with what those events and what your current circumstances have to teach you. Some things are fated to happen due to the collective, nature & past experiences you may never understand and are uncontrollable. I say, we have to learn to get in touch with what feels honest and true in the now and flow with it as circumstances unfold. Follow what you feel aligns with your foundation including the intentions of outcomes for the good for all. Let go of needing to tear others down to justify yourself & feed your ego. Instead find your place within the world that reflects what you believe to be true. Understand the things you don’t align with have their own place, their own lessons and their own path, find your tribe-your place. Become a working part of it to naturally empower and strengthen your dreams into reality. Walk your talk as inner self equals the reflection of your outer world. And remember some of what is being reflected could be ancestral or from a past live that you came into this lifetime to experience and heal.

Full Moon in Aries

October 9, 2022 at 1:54pm, PDT is the Full Moon in Aries. This Full Moon comes with great potential for healing in our relationships. We have the Sun (conscious awareness), Mercury (mind) & Venus (heart, giving & receiving love) all in Libra (the inventor of relationships- the we, balance, harmony, justice) opposing Chiron (the great healer). The Full Moon (unconscious awareness) is in Aries (I am) and is a time of letting go. How can we take this we vs me polarity and let it lead us toward healing?

This past year astrologically, has been about healing and releasing, opening our hearts to give & receive love more. A moment where we discover, when you do not feel love, it is a moment to release and let love in to heal. This is a time to replace judgement, hatred, right and wrongness to deepen your love toward healing to create solutions. Remember that relationships are not just about romance. It is first about the relationship with yourself, our immediate environment & the collective universe. You must first look in the mirror and see what you are reflecting. A good measure is looking at your world to see the results of your reflection, as inner = outer. But the most important relationship is with your spiritual connection, however you define it. When you put that relationship first, everything else thrives. Because you connect with a wisdom and truth to guide you. This is a time to move closer to letting love be your motivation in life and to be able to receive what you give. Putting forth love of all things so that what doesn’t presently line with love, will be moved to change or die. To heal, we must let things go that don’t serve the collective, so the new can be born. That comes when we reflect curiosity to what we don’t understand or perceive as familiar. Then open our hearts to connect with our truth, to do in a loving way, what is good for the collective, which in turn creates change on a massive level & within ourselves.

Let’s see what the cards say we need to let go of so that we can feel more balance, harmony & love in our relationship to ourself & the world. I drew a card from the Enchanted Map deck by Collette Baron-Reid. The card I drew was “Heal the Ouch” in protection mode. Meaning we need to pay extra attention to the essential meaning of this card which is: Forgiveness is the healer of the soul. The book says in so many words to make amends for any harm you’ve done, recognize how you’ve been selfish, greedy or inconsiderate. Let go of resentments to those who have done you wrong. Forgiving and loving yourself is important. Be humble and willing to admit to your weaknesses. Bring healing light to old wounds. I say – wow, that is a pretty perfect answer to the question. I hope you will take time to evaluate what it is you need to let go of within yourself so you may heal and live a more loving life. So in return, your world becomes a reflection of love that you are worthy of receiving. Sending much healing love to all.

Peace, Susan

Woo for you!

I wasn’t feeling any particular inspiration of what to write about today, so thought I’d just draw some Oracle Cards and see what we need to know at this time. I drew 3 cards from my Enchanted Map deck by Collette Baron-Reid. The first card I drew that represents what has happened/past is “Rescue”. The card representing now is “Balancing Act” and the 3rd card representing what is ahead is “Intention.”

Looking at the past, the Rescue card reflects on the past, especially the past few years of the pandemic. Where a lot of people have felt isolated, in chaos, experienced uncontrollable losses, confusion and a need to know what the outcome is going to be. It has most likely been one of the most challenging times in many people’s lives. Our past experiences can create hardship, anxiety, depression, broken relationships and divide. When in a hard time in our life, some of us may have been hoping this would just miraculously end and life would go back to normal without taking any action to provoke change. Just asking it to end. That is Rescue – giving away your power, doing nothing to change the circumstances in your life. Falling victim and sinking deeper. Forgetting that you have the power to move forward in spite of your circumstances. A situation like this can happen to help us realize that we need to let go of the belief that something outside ourselves has our answers. That what others say to us dictates our life. We need to commit to make our own decisions and to run our own life. We have the power to change our lives and that happens by where we place our beliefs. Instead of chasing life, let life chase you. Instead of wishing to be rescued, rescue yourself. We are meant to be our own creators and when we create our own solutions, life chases us. Life forms around the path we create for ourselves. What do you want for your life? What do you believe for your life? Do you let outside circumstances dictate that. Or do you see what surrounds you in your life and decide what you want to change about it? Your path forward is to learn to connect with what you desire and to focus on attaining that. Take time to meditate to open space for your spirit guides to connect with you. Ask them questions to help you solve your problems. They are there for you, waiting to help. Another way to start driving your life is to write in a journal. Just write down what you are feeling, what you need help with, what you are experiencing each day. When you get focused on writing intuitive answers start to flow through you. They may come as you are writing, or later. But they will come if you open yourself to receive. This is a great time for spiritual connection to others & more importantly, yourself to bring balance to your life.

The now card – Balancing Act, we are working on finding the balance in our present life & letting go of the wounds of our history that interfere with our path forward. It is time to acknowledge the stories you are telling others and yourself. Right now as we work with the influences of the planets and astrological signs, we have Venus (Love) in Libra (balance, harmony, justice, fairness) with Jupiter (abundance) present. This is a perfect time to go within and ask to see what it is to know about finding balance & harmony in your life for healing so that you can move on to creating a new direction or improving the direction you are headed. When you feel truth inside yourself about what you are doing, how you are spending your time and how you are acting, you are on the right path. When you feel ill at ease, like something isn’t right, it is risky & you may fail or life is not working out, you need to go within and connect with your heart and find what feels right. Identify when you are being motivated by what you have experienced, been told or scared into believing. Change your thoughts and emotions to positive confidence. Trust your inspirations and act on them. Right now, the influence of Jupiter has added to the mix and that is about creating abundance. Given the positioning, it is important to focus on the grandness of your efforts as you can be inspired to be a bit over the top in your offerings of love, friendship or good will. Find the balance! What is motivating you moving forward? Make it balanced and truthful to the heart and for the good of all. Let your inspirations lead and life will follow. But be mindful of creating balance in your actions. Try neutral emotionally for a while. That means listening to your heart, trusting your instincts that feel clear and true and then acting.

We close on “Intention”. If you are having trouble finding balance or letting go of the victim, down on your luck stories you are telling yourself & others, be honest and ask yourself why you need to hang on to this. What is it giving you, that you don’t believe you can create for yourself in a more productive way. Are you unable to ask for what you want or need? Do you have trouble accepting help? We can feel very restricted because of the thought/emotional patterns hardship creates within ourselves. It is time to let go of the chaos and conflict you see in your outer world and go within to create peace and empowerment. You have the power to change your life by connecting to your inner desires. Attach those desires to love and take some action that results in the good for all involved or affected. Visualize what you want, think of how you will feel being in this place in your life of fulfilled desires. And don’t judge yourself for the desires you want. Make sure it is true to your heart, what you truly think is the best thing for your life moving forward, not conformed to what your present circumstances are showing you. Write it down and take an action, one small step to start. There will always be chaos in this world. But to separate yourself from life because of it is to disempower your life. If your present circumstances are not working, you are not a prisoner to it. Get creative and decide a new way for yourself. Be aware of the road blocks in your mind that may come up that prove you are not capable or not worthy. Start small and do what you can now & intend for the rest to follow as you start. Be willing to make adjustments as the need arises by changing your limitations to aspirations & actions toward your desires. If you intend true to your heart, there will be synchronicities, serendipities & unknown opportunities. Maybe even pleasant surprises! Stay present in the now, trust what you desire is possible and have faith it will happen! Make life chase you, to form your reality around your creativity & desires. Peel though the layers of wounds and create a new empowerment of fearless fulfillment and dreams come true. And don’t talk yourself out of it along the way!

New Moon In Libra

The Full Moon in Libra is Sunday October 25 in the Northern Hemisphere. Libra is about aligning your inner beliefs with your outer world to create balance, fairness and harmony in relationships. Being your true self and expressing it. Having the courage to have honest conversations aligned with your heart (truth). There are influences that support the heart and spirit to align. So if you follow your heart, are motivated by love & divinely guided to do the right thing in your life, you will get where you want to be in life. Check mate for motives of co-dependency, judgement of others, manipulation & controlling others. Those are the dark side of the influence of Libra and this is a good time for them to be illuminated to heal & be let go. They can be the limiting qualities preventing us from having the relationships truly desired in life.

Fall Equinox in the N. hemisphere is a time when the length of daylight & nighttime are at a balance before days get shorter and nights longer. Spirits presence is magnified in your conscious awareness at the same time you are able to go deep into your unconscious. The light illuminates the darkness. This is an excellent time to evaluate what your inner most desires are in relationships with people and your world. It is a time to look at how those two align. Make a list and categorize what you “really” want your life to look like in relationships and day to day. Then note/categorize what your relationships are & what exists in your reality, your world. Next start to pay attention to your thoughts & emotional patterns & place them in the categories of desires vs. reality so you can be aware of the associations you have within yourself to each. Recognize what motivates you to take the actions or non-actions in your life. Is it fear, judgement or fear of being judged, thinking too far in the future, the need to know the outcomes, self-criticism, lack of worthiness, wounds from your past actions and their outcomes? This will give you a reality check of why things are the way they are in your life. Remember your outer world, your world realities are a direct reflection of what you belief inside yourself. Your inner beliefs are a mirror of your present world, acknowledge that. Journaling on a daily basis about what you are thinking and feeling also gives you something to look back over to recognize your patterns & life associations. Change can only come if you are honest about what you no longer want in your life and you take action to change.

In setting your intentions this month, know with Mercury in retrograde until early October & Mars is going into retrograde around the same time, our intentions will be slower to manifest. This gives us time to work on the issues we have that keep us from getting what we want or need in life so that we can create a truer outcome. Trust spirit to show you the way and read the signs presented. When you feel inspired to act toward your desires & truth resonates in your heart, have the courage to act. When you feel unsure, you need to keep focusing on what you want and resolve your conflict. It is very important to believe you deserve everything you desire. If you don’t, you need to know why and heal the beliefs that block you from having your desires or change course to authenticity. What you believe is who you are and what your world currently reflects back to you. Inner = Outter!

I want to share a story, today I called my vet office to request lab records for my dog before I went to pick up his prescription. When I called, I could tell that the receptionist was being bombarded with lots of calls as she didn’t answer the first attempt and then put me on hold the 2nd time, it seemed hectic. When I requested to have copies of the labs, she quickly replied “well I may not have them for you by the time you pick up the prescription.” I replied, “I understand, could you mail or e-mail them when you have time?” Because I really did understand, I could tell she was overwhelmed. She then replied very quickly, “well, I have your file right here and it’s not like you are asking me to copy the entire file, I’ll do it right now.” I was delighted and surprised by her sudden change. I truly believe she just needed some understanding & my reply created a shift in what she could and couldn’t do. My point is, we need to offer compassion to others. There are lots of moving parts in each of our lives & usually we only know a slice of another’s reality. When we offer compassion and understanding, we often have a better & more honest outcome.

Let’s draw a card: Today I am drawing from the “Wisdom of the Oracle” deck by Collette Baron-Reid. My question is what can everyone do to move closer to authenticity in their lives in relationships to self and their world? I drew “Not for you.” The essential meaning of this card from the book is: A clear knowing that something is being denied you. The book goes on to say, there are times that no matter how hard you work at something, the result you seek seems to elude you. This is a card to radically accept that not everything is available to you when you want it. There are forces who desire the best for you & have a much clearer idea of what is for your highest good. “Rejection is God’s protection.” Something much better that will make you happy is on it’s way. Sometimes the flags escape your observation or you refuse to acknowledge them. When a relationship is not meant to be, it is not possible to make it be. Think of rejection as protection from the Divine. I will leave you with the above message from the book to ponder, pay attention to what may have come into your awareness when you read this and ask to be guided to understand. Or decide if what you desire is truly what you want.

New Moon in Virgo

August 27th in the USA marks the New Moon in Virgo. During the New Moon, the Sun aligns with the moon so we have our conscious & unconscious together making it a great time to set intentions. Virgo is the ruler of the body, details, precision, putting things back together with focus on self-care, health, daily routines. This also applies to our spiritual & emotional bodies. Virgo is ruled by Mercury (the mind) & Chiron (the great healer.) So together, as Dr. Michael Lennox so brilliantly points out, Virgo season is naturally the time of year you should be setting your resolutions for the next 12 months, not January!

With the influences of the planets and signs presently, it is a time to create something new, but it is important to build a strong foundation. Be clear on your motives to create, have courage and be sure you are deserving of your desired outcome! Creating something new could mean having to give something up. Or it could be the path you are on is not the path you need to continue. The fork in the road so to speak. This could include changes in relationships or relationship roles. Or perhaps, you build on what you have been working on. Maybe you have overcome a lot of lessons and are ready to refine your project. Follow your truth to continue and ensure it is not a form of escape. Keep paying attention to the prompts from spirit for adjustments & be open to what might need to shift or change. Growing and learning are a ongoing process, so be open to advice or criticism. Let it empower you as you enjoy your successes and continue to strengthen your foundation.

In setting your intentions, write them down & believe you can have it. Visualize it and attach the emotions of love, gratitude & compassion to the intention. Lastly set the plan in motion, take action of some sort. Even if it is just doing jumping jacks, letting the universe know you are kick starting the creation.

Let’s draw a card. The question I will ask for everyone is, how do I work through the barriers to deserve what I want? The card I drew from the Enchanted Map Deck is “Storm Fields” in protection. This card says, now is not the time to engage in any activity that brings unwanted chaos or drama into your life. This kind of storm can be destructive & you’ll regret your actions later. Find shelter & let any turbulence pass, then you will be heard. I say, find peace with what is in your heart. If there is resistance to your dreams, dig deep to see what is attached to the resistance to heal. Make shifts as they are comfortable, pushing yourself just enough to create the change needed without blowing up the scenario. When things adjust, push more as you gain confidence and feel stronger to face opposition with grace & strength. This will build your self-worth & ability to deserve. Know, if you are inspired to think of an idea & it lives in your heart, it is possible. Always be aware of your motives before you act.

Peace & Love, Susan

New Moon Coming!

The New Moon in Virgo will happen this Saturday, August 27th. Backing up a bit, the Sun moved into Virgo on the 22nd & since August 20, Mercury (issues/lessons of the mind) has been sitting in it’s shadow & will continue to do so until it retrogrades September 9th to early October. Mercury rules Virgo (about organization, details, putting everything into place, the physical body & it’s processes).

I wanted to share, because this week is a time to pay attention to issues that arise with interaction, communication, thoughts & processing mind patterns. The incidents or negotiations that happen this week will give you a hint of what the Mercury retrograde over the next 6 weeks will be about for you & what issues/lessons may present themselves. This gives you a chance to start focusing on what is ahead.

Now and during Mercury’s retrograde journey, there will be 3 times that Mercury encounters influences with potential to trigger irritations. Starting with later this week with Mercury sitting in it’s shadow, then again when it turns around/goes retrograde and then a 3rd time when it turns around again and begins it’s path forward. Presently this week starts off in a positive with empowered use of our voice, but as the week progresses, we move into agitations that can influence the power of persuasion & turn communication into necessitated conversations. Again, pay attention to the issues that come up inside yourself, as this could be a hint of what the retrograde will be for you over the next 6 weeks.

As we move toward the New Moon and our time to plant the seeds of intentions, it is important to look yourself in the mirror and decide if the direction you are heading is true to your hearts desire, bodily health and if you believe you are deserving of it all. If you are true to yourself in your intentions, you are capable of materializing your dreams and they will last as long as your truth. This New Moon will be like setting your resolutions for the remainder of the year. More on the New Moon this Saturday.

Lets draw an oracle card to see what everyone needs to know about this week. I drew the card “The Storyteller.” The essential meaning of this card is: identity, positive self-definition, teaching others how to treat you through the stories you tell about yourself.” I say – if you want to create positive change in your life, it starts with the stories of your life and your experiences. Do you tell the same victim stories over and over. Are you a hard luck Harry? How does that serve you as a person being a victim or painting a particular self-image to others or the images you send to the world? How you talk to yourself and the guidance you give yourself is of equal importance to your direction in life. Change begins with you. Remember the world is a reflection outwardly of your inner self. To head toward your dreams and goals, you need to be in touch with the truth inside yourself to propel your life forward. Be aware of the motivations behind your actions and communications because that is what guides your future. The Universe can only respond to who you are and what you are deserving of. The rest of your misguided actions have to be worked out until you have reached truth. You can thank this retrograde for helping points those aspects out! Wishing you well as you navigate to fill your dreams.

Regrouping your Dreams

Today is a day to move toward your dreams feeling confident and to speak about what is important as the air & fire are present & Venus is still in Cancer, so there is accepting energy surrounding and supporting us. That won’t last for long, as the New Moon on July 28th will come with more unpleasant emotion! So make good use of the present influences that support being heard. I you are not sure how to proceed, take some time to regroup, let your mind play, open yourself to hear spirit.

Lets ask the cards what it is we need to know about moving forward with our dreams in case you are feeling a little stifled: I used the Wisdom of the Oracle Deck by Collette Baron-Reid. The card I drew was: “Round and Round” in protection mode. This card tells us we need to look at our patterns in life and recognize how we keep repeating the same scenarios. Take accountability for how you participate in creating the reality. This requires honesty, tapping into our motivation before you speak, act & do. What is your perspective? Are you considering how you may affect others with your actions before taking them? Or are you fearing the result as you act? Or are you just frustrated so you neglect your responsibility? All actions create waves and it is good to take time out to clear your head. If you don’t know where to start, ask spirit to guide with an outcome that is focused on the good for all. Being of service when you are doing for yourself is always a great perspective. Maybe you need spirit to bring you courage to begin, or the wisdom of just listening and asking for the right time to share your wisdom. Maybe you need more education to broaden your knowledge or skills. Perhaps spirit will send someone to support you in motivating action? But if you come from a perspective of thoughtful, honest energy asking it be carried out with love and grace, your best result will come. Be open to the opportunity when it presents itself and trust in your heart when it feels right to proceed. Remember that spirit isn’t always going to bring you exactly what you ask for, but will bring you what you need to grow toward your goals in life. The one thing you can always trust is the truth within your heart that serves for the good of all. Let that be your roadmap forward.

Sign of the Times

Last month I watched an Astrology Summit hosted by Astrologer, Suzanne Gerber. One of the recent, standout interviews was with Astrologer, Barbara Hold Clow who spoke on Chiron’s Rulership & the Virgo/Pisces Polarity. I found her discoveries to be fascinating and thought I would share some of the highlights of her interview since it is so relevant to our world today.

In 2011, Barbara looked ahead and saw that in January of 2020 a Saturn & Jupiter conjunction along with several other significant planets would cluster in rule-oriented Capricorn. She predicted the world would experience a break down of human society, which in real time, kicked off the rise of the global pandemic. In 2011, she was heavily criticized within the Astrology community for this prediction & on some level abandoned her practice & went into writing books of fiction to express what she believed true through a different medium. She also talked about how in December of 2020, Saturn & Jupiter aligned in Aquarius marking the beginning of a new age, Aquarius. This is significant because we will continue to have 2 planets in Air Signs until 2059. This differs from the traditional/authoritative influence we are leaving as we move deeper into Aquarius where the influences point us toward focus on the collective well-being, logical thought & innovative growth. 2021 was loaded with 785 yr. old transits which continued to shake our world. More immediate to the ushering in of Aquarius, is that Chiron, the Great Awakener & Healer will complete it’s first orbit cycle around the sun in 2027 since being first sighted in 1977. Barbara predicts we will experience a huge awakening of some kind. She says “It will be an explosion of ensoulment & enlightenment.” She urges people to “awaken to your spiritual awareness and recognize what is going on. Understand the planetary/astrological signs influences are real.” So in other words, now is the time for the masses to go within and start to heal their wounds which can lead to a higher consciousness of mankind. The more people heal, the more empowered our society will be to help others and be of service as the influences move us toward a community-oriented Aquarian age. Most importantly, the more you heal building up to 2027, the better you will handle the completion of Chiron’s lunar cycle. The host of this summit, Astrologer Suzanne Gerber added, “Chiron isn’t just about self-healing, it is about giving back.” She went on to say, “When we do our own work, it uniquely positions & molds us to help others.”

I felt this interview told a similar story of what we have experienced in 2020-now, where we are headed and what the outcome could be. Let’s see what the cards say! My question is: “What is it we need to know about healing of our wounds & awakening to spiritual guidance in our daily lives?” I drew the card “Making a Choice.” The essential meaning of this card is – You are required to come to a decision now. You are faced with a dilemma or a fork in the road and must make a conscious decision regarding the next right action. Wow, how right on is that?! Even if you don’t know where to begin, a starting point is always asking to be guided with the intention of your outcome. Trusting the signs that feel right and acting with a pure motivation in your actions. If your wounds are bigger than you, it is important not to bury them, but to reach out for the level of support you need to heal. The more you bury, the more significant the outer world reflects mishaps in your life & failed relationships. Get quiet, let go of all the self-criticism, fear, frustration and ask spirit to give you information to guide you in the right direction. Trust in spirit and begin the steps to heal now. Get ready for the great awakening that lies ahead. Now is the time! One step at a time.

I hope you have enjoyed this information. Of course I always say to read and reflect. Take what feels right and investigate further to conclude what doesn’t. These are simply a few thought provoking perspectives in a big pool of humanity! Let spirit guide you to find your place in the scheme of things. Hopefully your place will include upgrading humanity & community!
