Soul Time Line

This graph (an excerpt from my personalized astrology book – “Soul Map”) offers a quick view into some of the major cycles and astrological transits we each experience throughout our lives.

The Human experience offers some very specific and accurately predictable time frames that define the coming of ages and personal Rites of Passage through our Life.

It can be a tremendous blessing and offer much support along the path to have this foreknowledge and insight.

 

2017 ~ A Year of Great Awakening and Inspired Creative Expansion

2017 is a Year of Massive Awakening, Creative Expansion, & Radical Shifts in consciousness within as well as on the forefront of the World Stage.

This is the Age of Aquarius.

We are in The Revolution.  WE ARE The Revolution.

From 2012 ~ 2016 we all experienced the profound power of the “breaking down” energies of the “Uranus Square Pluto transit.”
  • Major Confrontations of Self.
  • Death – and – Rebirth sweeping through every aspect of our lives.
  • Truth Revealed and Redefined.

Each moment leads us to the next, essentially preparing us for the next…

As we continue the journey on in 2017, we are now being lead powerfully through this next year by the highly inspirational forces of FIRE and AIR setting the main stage.  

Come 2018 through the monumental planetary alignments of 2020, we will find ourselves working strongly with the EARTH Element, where we will begin to see Life demanding much more Grounding, Stability, and Commitment to the form of our creations.

This is a year that is much like preparation for what is going to be grounded and stabilized during the years to come.  This is a year that is largely defined by playing in the field of  CREATIVE ACTUALIZATION, experimenting, and having, more than ever, an EXPERIENTIAL RELATIONSHIP with your ability to manifest and create your world.  

It is a dance of Fire & Air, asking all of us to move and to create, on these winds of change.  

To bring forth the Heart of Fire, and the Wisdom of Air.


2017 Ushers In:
  • Jupiter ~ the bigger than Life Jovial King, who represents “luck” & “blessings” and always MORE
  • Standing in Opposition to:
  • Uranus ~ the Great Awakener who waits for no-one to provoke rapid transformation and deconditioning

The Goal: Revelations of True-Self

This year the Higher Mind is on Fire and Dancing with the pure abundance of Creative Power and Desire for Expansion!  The advice on the winds is to harness the energy, spread your wings, and fly.  

Ready or not – here we are.

This is a time of unprecedented acceleration of growth, expansion, and awareness. 

The train has left the station and is full speed ahead!

Please in-JOY the ride!

Live Monthly Astrological Forecast (conference call) with Jessica Dawn and

‘Womb Wisdom Priestess’ ~ Christiane Anna.

“The Healing aspects of Grandmother Moon and Mother Earth, representing all that is beautiful in woman”  
~ Jamie Sams

Jessica shares her deep astrological insights and cosmic wisdom to offer practical support for all those desiring to come into greater alignment with the Natual Cycles of the Moon and Cosmos.

Christiane Anna shares her profound knowledge of the Wisdom of the Womb to assist all those wishing to tune in deeper and cultivate a powerful & intimate relationship with your own Womb Space – the seat of the heart & soul.

Together they are creating sacred space for all those who are wanting to understand the depth and beauty of the Natural Cycles moving through each one of us,  and how we can each be a powerful participant in this beautiful co-creation of the Dance of Life.


This is a year-long, 13 Moon dance with the Moon Cycle, where we will be celebrating and discovering the Sacred Wisdom of the Womb, presented by Christiane Anna.
Jessica Dawn will be guiding us through the New & Full Moon energies each month, along with other Astrological influences, giving us all an experiential connection to the Cosmos and our divine place within it.  

Enter the Medicine Lodge…

Join the Mother Temple Red Tent Community and deepen your connection with Lunar Rhythms, the Wisdom of the Womb, and Sisterhood.

We are Daughters of Grandmother Moon and she and our Dear Mother Earth, are calling to us to hear their Song and embrace their Wisdom.

Do YOU hear the call?

Now is the time that the Earth Medicine and Lunar Medicine are needed more than ever to be felt and nurtured in our hearts, for the healing of our people, and the healing of our planet.

All we need to do is come with our willingness to do the work by listening to the wisdom voicing through our own wombs and move in harmony with the cycles of Nature.   It is simple and it is profound.

The natural cycles of the Moon are encoded within the very blood of our feminine beings.  The pulse of Nature beats within our own hearts.  We are women and we have come as part of her design, to ebb and flow and change each day through phases of being.  This is Our Nature.

With each cycle she makes, she offers us the opportunity to come into greater alignment.  To come into greater awareness of our own cycles of growth.  With each phase, she brings her gifts, her lessons, her light and her darkness as a reflection of each our own evolutionary path through life.  We too grow, and blossom, and peak in our intensity, and we fade, and cast shadow, and go into darkness to be reborn again in time.

To choose to live life by the Moon Cycles and in union with the Voice of Your Womb is to decide to live a life in devotion to your own personal self-empowerment, to live in awareness of your growth, and to live in honor of your own personal Rites of Passage as you move through time.

To Enter the Healing Quest.

We invite you to journey with us and learn of this Moon Medicine and Womb Wisdom for yourself.


Inside the Medicine Lodge You will be guided . . .

  • Into the understanding of the Medicine offered through the 4 most potent phases of the Moon: New, Waxing, Full, & Waning Moon.
  • You will receive deep Astrological insights and Energy Forecast for the overall Cosmic Weather of this time and suggestions of how we can best co-create with these energies.
  • How to create powerful and meaningful rituals specific to harnessing the energies of each Moon Phase to support and nourish your own growth and process.  You will see the magic happen!
  • How to establish a powerful and everlasting connection and union with your own Womb Space and the Wisdom she has to offer you.  Live from your own self-love, self-care, and personal power.
  • Align your sexual creative power within the seat of your heart and soul.  Honoring the supreme creative power of the Yoni and the Feminine.
  • How to live in harmony with the natural rhythms of the Seasons and the Moon Phases and to come into personal alignment with this dance.  As above so below, within & without.  We are the Microcosm within the Macrocosm.   Mother Earth wants us to dance in union WITH HER!
  • Trust and Listen to your innate Instinctual Knowing.  Read the signs. Powerful Intuition is a Divine-God given gift held by all woman.
  • Re-member the ancient and esoteric wisdom of the Moon and how she lives and breathes within you.   Honor the Goddess within and out.

This is an experiential process of alignment with the cycles of nature in relationship to your own true self.  Healing on many levels will occur when you choose to live in co-creative harmony and understanding with the phases of the Moon.  By consciously integrating and embodying the Divine Feminine essence into every aspect of your being on every path you walk, you are saying Yes to your personal power, Yes to your freedom, Yes to living in your highest creative potential, Yes to peace, love, and honor in all your relations, Yes to your purpose.


 What will I get out of this?

The more presence you are willing to give to the teachings the more you will gain from the experience.  Among some of the offerings you will receive are:

  • A monthly New Moon conference call where Jessica will be presenting the Moon Phase Teachings and the current Energy Forecast for that month.  Christiane Anna will offer a different ‘Womb Wisdom’ Module each month in perfect harmony with the current Cosmic Energies.
  • A group Facebook page where we will be keeping in touch and holding the space throughout the month with support and inspiration.  This is also a place where both Christianne Anna and Jessica will be available to answer any questions you may have about Astrology, the Moon, and the Womb Wisdom.  This is also a place where all sisters can connect and share their own personal stories and experiences.
  • You can expect guided meditations, writing prompts, suggested rituals and practical ways for creating sacred space and honoring the Feminine Temple, deep Astrological insights on all signs, planets, and phases of the Moon, and profound and intimate guidance on Womb Wisdom and the creative power of the Yoni.

Goddess Aphrodite & Queen Persephone

AphroditedreamingAPHRODITE

Sisters of The Pomegranate

The Goddesses of Vision & The Alchemist of Love

Both Aphrodite and Persephone are linked in their mythologies by the Pomegranate ~ the aphrodisiac fruit of sublime pleasure. 

Aphrodite is said to be the mature aspect of Persephone, and Persephone the innocent or immature shadow of Aphrodite. 

Independent Goddess

Aphrodite is very much of ‘The World’ and the material pleasures of it. However, she taps into a depth of power, (perhaps from the very source of her counterpart – Queen of the Underworld: Persephone) to bring forth the inspiration of the muse, which powerfully inspires, captivates and enchants all she touches. 

This is Aphrodite’s gift: her medicine to imbue all she looks upon – with beauty.  To be in~love with the object of her attention.  Her love is unmistakably felt and trailing about her wherever she goes.  This also is the very poison which leaves a trail of broken hearts in the wake of her return, and her own addiction to the taste of Love & Beauty can be her own shadow and downfall.

Venus is not attached and like the muse can come and go without warning, like an intoxicating pink cloud of smoke that has magically appeared and then vanishes like a mirage, leaving the bitter taste of what was lingering.

Sexual Empowerment

Aphrodite is not considered a vulnerable Goddess.  She is very much in control and her own source of empowerment.  She chooses who she wants to be with and when she will leave.  She honors connection and union, but she is not attached to it.  She fully involves herself but does not become utterly vulnerable by the connection.  She wants and desires the transformative and creative power’s of Love, found in the exchange of Emotions. 

She values the emotional exchanges and experiences with others far more than permanent bonds.   She is not interested in “forever” or “death do us part”.  She lives in the moment where the magic is and is deeply passionate and focused upon that which is personally meaningful to her.  She will give all of herself wholeheartedly as if each lover and object of her attention were the only one, and when it is time for her to go – she goes whole with all of herself confidently intact. 

She leaves behind her essence but always walks on completely in her independence and sexual maturity. 

Aphrodite has a powerful naturally erotic nature; like a true sensual creature.  

In the mythologies, she is linked to male deities and having children, but she did not suffer and was not victimized like the other ‘vulnerable Goddesses’ ~ Demeter – The Mother, Hera – The Wife, and Persephone – The Mother’s Daughter.

Aphrodite represents relationship: to relate, to be known and to know the other.  Sexuality is one of her direct channels to this knowing.  She enjoys being the muse as her offering.  To inspire man’s dream, shape it into form, believe in it and bless it with her love, inspiration, and magic.  

She carries the Power of Vision and positive expectation... 

Her Shadow & Her Addiction to Love

When the Aphrodite type of woman (or Man) can not say no to his/her own appetite or particular susceptibility of desire in the moment, she/he risks falling into the addiction to love.  From this loss of independence to be in control of her own life course: she risks falling into her shadow, whereas like Persephone she will go into the underworld and reveal the dark seeds of obsession, compulsion, and possession to another.  Usually not in her own self but directed towards her by the other. 

Compassion & Humility

Aphrodite possessed great compassion and humility even amidst her independence and infidelities.  The one she married was Hephaestus, the hunched-backed clubfooted rejected son of Zeus and Hera.  He was a creative genius with great impressive skills and he manages to win her as his wife.  She was not, however, loyal to him as her only sexual consort because as the story goes Hephaestus was a creative genius with deep tumultuous emotions stirring within, however, he was incapable of acquiring the skills to express them and was not able to hold the love and attention of such a feminine creature.


In the birth chart, strong Aphrodite and Venus symbols will express dynamics of this nature. 


The combination of Persephone and Aphrodite saw as one entity of two shades is an expression of the feminine that is powerfully Tantric in its nature.  It is the union of the mature sexual independent Goddess-centered in herself,  and the powerful Shamaness of the most vulnerable and intimate of emotions provoked from deep within the depth of the heart and soul within oneself.   

Persephone: The story of Tantric Union

  • The Mythology of Persephone is the story of the young and naive maiden carefree in a field of flowers when suddenly the Earth splits open and up comes Hades.  He abducts her down to the Underworld to become his wife. She eventually earns her own power as the rightful Queen of Darkness – and the hells and neuroses of the psyche. 
  • He rapes her – initiating her virgin sexuality into the raw instinctual trespasses of desire and claims her as his wife – bonding her into sexual partnership and union.  Persephone was already born into the initiation of ‘partnership’ through the strong bond she had with her Mother – Demeter.  Her partnership with Hades represents the next stage of her passage.  Her journey into becoming the Tantric Goddess.  
  • Although she remains immature in the innocence and naivety of her youth, she eventually becomes wizened through the deep power that is innately within her.  She is the ‘Mother’s daughter’ that is claimed and remains to be taken care of and kept. However, what she becomes as her destiny is – the guide and the keeper of the secrets of the dark, as an initiate of the alchemy of Tantric Union. 

As she becomes the Guide of the Underworld she is forever bound to the vulnerabilities of partnership and cannot escape from the bond of union and the depth of this realm. 

First the ‘Mother’s Daughter’ and then the ‘abducted wife’ – she lives through the experience of being ever bonded and powerfully affected by others.  

Her Destiny is as the Queen Shaman; the alchemist who turns the ashes of the hellish realms into gold makes peace out of war, makes love out of hate.   Her magic is the mastery of mixing her own energies with those of another and transfiguring the whole into – a greater aspect of Self.  

In union with another, she takes whatever is available and alchemizes it into pure source energy and gives the same in return. She is the Tantric Queen.  

Though the story begins with the tale of “the earth opening and Hades pulling her in” it is really revealing the story of – the journey of the masculine and feminine moving from the innocence of instinctual sexuality into the evolved quality of sacred sexuality.   It shows how we are initiated into this path through the swallowing depths of being exposed to the raw truth of the human spirit, and through the gateway of an open heart – the experience of union with another. 

Desiring the Forbidden Fruit of Knowledge

As the story goes she was instructed not to eat anything while in The Underworld, otherwise, she could never return, however, when offered the aphrodisiac pomegranate seed from Hades she willingly accepted and ate it.  This shows her own natural desire to taste of that which was forbidden and to commit herself to the abduction of the underworld. 

When she returned to her Mother (which she was later granted partial time throughout the year) she lied to her Mother and said Hades had forced her to eat of the fruit. 

Her lie to her Mother shows her immaturity to take responsibility for herself and to claim her own identity and independent power.  Claiming her own self-identity is her greatest weakness…

In The Astrological Birth Chart

Persephone is ‘The Kore.’   She symbolizes that aspect of ourselves that is innocent or naive – the eternal child.  The area where we struggle to “grow up” and face the authority, standing confidently in our own maturity.  It is the place where we are susceptible to become “abducted” and taken down into the shadows of that particular underworld (which is represented by her placing in your chart.)     This is where we may become the victim to the neuroses of that particular shadow dynamic and remain the immature, victimized, powerless child. 

Extreme Vulnerability and Femininity

Persephone is not independent, self-centered and in-control like Aphrodite.  She is extremely vulnerable, irresponsible, complacent and extremely feminine in her nature. 

She is highly susceptible to the human neurosis of the psyche created by the extreme overwhelm of emotion like depression, anxiety, and emotional/mental/nervous breakdowns.

In her apparent helplessness to take responsibility she can appear selfish and childish, however, she is actually selfless in her nature as she gives all of herself and allows herself to be taken: to be taken down into the underworld of herself and that of other.  There is an egolessness in her self-focus as she provides herself as the body (or the container) for transmutation to happen. 

The risk in her willingness is the potential of becoming completely overwhelmed by the intensity of the depth of this emotional realm that is her territory. 

She is the ultimate receptacle and the expression of a humble sacrifice of oneself for allowing herself to be a conduit for one’s transformation to occur through her.  She uses her receptivity and ultra-sensitivity to guide others into those realms within themselves.

Loss of Self

In this way, she risks losing all sense of herself and becoming like Hestia/Vesta – completely undefined.  But unlike the independent and self-centered Hestia, Persephone can become desperate in her loss of self and need to connect to someone to be the vessel.  A Persephone woman (or man) can lose touch with knowing how to maturely support themselves, as their identification is so deeply involved in serving another as the “processor of the inner realms”.

She is extremely powerful as the Shamaness that she is: the alchemist of powerful energies ~ the Queen of the Underworld and Wife of Hades/Pluto.  She holds space with the Demons and Ghost of our psyche and is Queen over them. 

Persephone is the Queen Alchemist and in her true essence and power, she is naturally attracted to the powerful transformational quality of The Dark of the Shadow and at home in The Underworld. 

Like Chiron ~ when finally we are no longer victimized by the wound and we clear the oppression of our pain aside and are then free to allow the experience to be the medicine and the wisdom inherent in our own soul.  We are free. 

So it is with Persephone.  When we have finally come to a place of seeing through our own naivety and self-victimization, we come to recognize that source of inherent power we have in this territory of the psyche,  we become like the Queen Guide.  Moving through the shadow we can usher our own spirit through the journey of reclaiming – our own inheritance within of where within, we have stored our own alchemical power. 


Persephone in the birth chart shows where we are susceptible to being abducted into our own helplessness and shadow, where we can give up our own power and remain immature.  When the shadow is honored and the inherent alchemical power of this area (as shown in the chart) is allowed to be publicly claimed we can see where a great wealth of deep wisdom as the Guide of this terrain exist. 

Persephone

Full Moon Meditation ~ Video

 

All over the World since the beginning of time people have gathered under the Full Moon Light to join in ceremony, ritual, and meditation. 

Today there are hundreds of thousands of people who honor this time each month as a day when the energies and light offer a powerfully supportive element to grounding and anchoring powerful intentions and prayers. 

When so many people gather at the same time with positive intentions and focus, a massive collective impact can and does occur.

Back in 2000 the great Shamaness and Author of many books on Shamanism: Sandra Ingerman, initiated a monthly Full Moon Meditation which she called the “Web of Light.”  Still today she has continued each month to support this collective gathering and intention with many people joining in.  Read here for more.

Please join in meditation under the Full Moon, from where ever you are, to create this powerful ‘Web of Light’ and let us witness together the healing and unity that continues to build in our world!


The general intention put forth by this particular meditation and group intention is based mainly on focusing on one’s own inner light.  It is not about sending light out to a particular place in the world, a person, or the Earth herself. 

The intention is on spending the time making contact with and cultivating your own source of divine light which dwells within you.  It is about being with your own inner light and witnessing it grow as you nurture it. 

It is from this place in each of us that we will find the healing and transformation we seek. 

Imagine a world where everyone is shining from the inside – out! 

I created this Full Moon Meditation video to simply be a support: a point of focus if you would like one, to hold the space for a 15-minute meditation.  The accompanying music is beautiful and was created with a strong loving intention to support meditative space.  The images are a beautiful compilation of the light of nature and when gazed upon can evoke one’s own inner light source and connection with Nature. 

You can use this video with your eyes open gazing at the images or keeping your eyes closed and just allowing the music to carry you deeper into your own journey. 

Enjoy and may we all be In Peace.

May 3rd, Half-Moon ~ Moon Diary * COSMIC Forecast ~

moongatheringBeing aware of the 4 Phases of the Moon Cycle is one of the easiest and most powerful ways to recognize your own personal ‘rites of passage’ playing out in the current phase of your own life.
When we tune into the cosmic guidance and the cycles of nature we have the opportunity to come into greater alignment within ourselves and in connection with the whole of life.
As you begin to live in harmony with the cosmic cycles, or simply the Moon Cycle – you quickly begin to observe that your own personal life ‘phases’ are not separate, but in fact flowing synchronically with the very rhythm of Nature herself.

As above so below.


Go With The Flow!


May 3rd, ~ Half Moon ~ 

We have come now half way between the New Moon and the upcoming Full Moon (next Wednesday).
It’s now First Quarter Half Moon. Light is waxing ~
G R O W I N G, we are.

We are in the Taurus Moon Cycle ~ Earth – Grounded – Sensual energy.

The Body, Money, our Resources, Our worth and value, S E L F W O R T H. These are our Teachers now.

******* ) ( ******

Mercury Retrograde turns Direct TODAY.
Venus Retrograde turned Direct a couple weeks ago. Things are going to start to feel much more in a forward direction in our own lives.

After May 20th we will be clear out of the “shadow” of both Venus and Mercury.

This is the time when our decisions with our plans and relationships will be much more clear and we will be able to receive and hear with much more clarity, the direct knowing from within ourselves of what’s next in each our lives.

May is such a P O W E R F U L month for INSIGHTS, REVELATIONS, AWAKENINGS, DOORS OPENING, RADICAL SHIFTS IN PERCEPTION, EXPANSION INTO CREATIVITY & JOY.

STAY OPEN! This week we are currently closing out an 18-year cycle and beginning the next 18-month LUNAR NODE CYCLE.
May 10th’s Scorpio Full Moon will usher in the beginning of a powerful LEO themed 18-month adventure!

It’s an opportunity for all of us to get deeper in contact with our JOY, OUR CREATIVITY, OUR FUN, OUR LIGHT, OUR LOVE, AND OUR OWN PERSONAL EXPRESSION.

To C E L E B R A T E ourselves and this life experience!

******* ) ( ******

For those of you who are journeying on the “13 Clan Mothers – Healing Quest” with us, we are currently walking with ~

“LISTENING WOMAN”

The Taurus Moon ~ She is the Lover, the Sensualist, and the Artist – She speaks clearly from her grounded core –

“I AM in touch with my Senses.”

She liberates herself from the burden basket of others and dwells peacefully in the silence of her own company.

She designs a world based on the strength, the truth, and the beauty of her own personal values.

She protects what belongs to her, with her heart.

She dances out her sorrows, barefoot.

And, dances in her Joy with palms up to the Starry Night.

She is in touch with Nature.



April 10th, Full Moon 

Blessings on this most powerful Libra Full Moon time!

Four Planets in Retrograde during April ~ “A reset” ~ We are being asked to go back. Reenter the Garden of your life and take a good look at what seeds you have planted, and how you have, or have not, tended to the growth.

How has your Garden grown?

In the fullest Light of Libra, she teaches us to Walk Gracefully into the challenges and extreme imbalances of our lives.
To cultivate the Neutral Mind and gain perspective from a centered place of neutrality. Release attachments, release judgment, release “Truths” that are conditions of the mind, let go of the identities that are limitations to the truth of your infinite nature.
In this way, harmony can be reclaimed and we can live once again IN BALANCE with our true nature, and in balance with Nature herself.
This Venus Retrograde Cycle has been a dance with some of our deepest wounds. As she returns to join hands once again with Chiron ~ the Wounded Healer, during this Full Moon time, we are given the opportunity to make peace with our past. Make peace with ourselves and others. To face our wounds. To heal. And to – Self Care & Self Love – this is the only way.
Living by, and as an example is the only way to the healing of our World.

Those of us journeying together on the “13 Moon * 13 Clan Mothers – Healing Quest”,
have been taking up the Medicine of Clan Mother ~ “WALKS TALL WOMAN”.

As we move with the Aries Moon Cycle, which began two weeks ago on the New Moon.
“She teaches us about magnetism and how to use authority and will properly, how to lead through example, how to change life’s situations by taking action ourselves, not depending on others to do it for us.
She teaches us how to be proud of our accomplishments through self-esteem, not self-importance, that the more we refine our skills, the happier we are with ourselves.
ACTIONS ALWAYS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS. We are living examples of our philosophies, we are walking our personal truths.
WALKS TALL WOMAN is the Guardian of Leadership and Keeper of New Pathways. She shows the power of being our personal best and the importance of innovation. The Mother of Innovation.

~ This type of innovation does not destroy the Traditions of the past but rather adds new truths to those Traditions, giving the ancient ways of the Ancestors new growth potential. ~

She is the Mother of Perseverance and Stamina, who teaches us the value of Health, the needs of our physical bodies and use of exercise to be strong, our ability to be graceful and find the point of gravity in the human form. We must be flexible enough to allow others to follow their paths.
We must be willing to drop our fears of taking action. Leading through example by being personally responsible in thought, action, and deed is the way we find the Medicine of Walking Our Talk.”

We are in the three days of the Full Moon. This is a time to RECEIVE. The Light is potent. It moves in us and through us. Be open to the messages of guidance available to you. Be receptive to your own inner guidance that is your most powerful tool and voice of your own.
Allow the essence of the Divine Grand-Mother Moon Light to penetrate and fill you like you are one and the same.

We are one and the same.

Soon the Waning Moon will take it’s course and lead us once again into the Release Phase, and preparation for new seeds, yet Unknown, to birth through the darkness.
For now . . . embrace it all.


FullSizeRender (38)May 4th, 2016 ~ New Moon in Taurus (May 6th)

~ The Three Days of The Dark Moon ~

The first day of the three days of the Dark Moon is actually the last day of the current cycle – the day before the New Moon

  • On the last day of the Lunar Cycle (May 5th), we are in the complete release

The 28-day ‘cycle of consciousness’ is now coming to a close.  The last sliver of light that remains will soon fade as total darkness consumes the night. 

The light of the Moon is like a symbol of our own consciousness and as the last light disappears, we too are releasing our awareness into the void of darkness ~ the unknown. 

This day is about – letting fall away what needs to go. 

  • Remember, whatever you decide to continue to hold on to will be carried into the next phase and essentially add to the ‘pot of ingredients’ that flavors your life. 
  • This day is a good day to let go of habits, behaviors, relationships, etc that you know do not serve you – to begin with, a clear slate tomorrow. 

Giving thanks and saying “fare thee well” with appreciation, is the best way to go!  Acknowledging – all those lessons, experiences, and awareness, came like a blessing to guide you forward. 

~ What follows is an incubation time into a fresh new phase, on the New Moon day (May 6th).  Like a seed, we rest beneath a sheath of darkness awaiting the moment to burst forth and become our potential.  Soon the light will pull us there…

“Will I grow into the Oak Tree I am meant to be”? 

  • What will come out of the darkness is what is discovered in the unknown – over these next few days and weeks.  Questions will become answers and questing will become fulfillment… 

The period of total darkness of the New Moon (before the crescent light) is where seeds are planted (some on a very unconscious level) too soon sprout and be seen and nourished by the light, as the days pass.

~ On the third day of the Dark Moon – the day after the New Moon, we can begin to see the first sliver of the new light dawning. 

  • As we continue to plant the seeds for the theme of this cycle, we can (if we choose) start to harness in on the supportive active energy of ‘growth’ – energy moving forward. 

We have entered the phase of the initiative impulse to create and to build.  Nourishing the soil of your dreams and intentions will feed the life of all you are. 

Like the beautiful Oak Forest teaches us- you like the acorn already are so complete in all your potential. 

There is a powerful Taurus energy now guiding us deeper into our own core of inner resources and our capacity to support our own selves with all the love and beauty we desire. 

Taurus ask us to:

Find the love within.  Find the serenity and peace within.  Find the way within. Be it.

And then share it. 

Blessings on your way.

This week sets us off in the phase of the Waning Moon.  After the full light: the Full Moon begins to shed a little more each day.  So is the process within each of us. 

The spark in us that ignited around this past New Moon had its course into a flaming light, and now soon ashes will take over…

The 3 days of the Full Moon brings a peak; a climax – and then the release follows. 

Here we are.

What in you came to a pinnacle point?  Can you now feel the shift?

Now we are in – the shifting energy – from out of growth, to bursting full light over the past two weeks, into the fading of light towards eventual total renewal at the New Moon.  This is the course.

But, New Moon is still 11 days from now. 

For now, it’s a gradual process.  Each day we let go of a little more. 

Until piece by piece, we are “new” again. 

The New Moon seeks to renew our spirit and liberate our consciousness into fresh awareness. 

The Waning Moon (now) leads us there, preparing us with introspection, and rather than the power to ‘create’ like the waxing growing moon, the waning moon – gives the power to DISMANTLE. 

Our own consciousness is seeking to shed and release what is necessary at this point of our transition through time.  It’s simply the nature of the cycle.  Look up to the sky and you will see.

Throughout this week as we head towards the Waning Half-Moon on the 29th, it’s a good time to go with the flow of energy and allow what needs to fall away – fall.  Scattered parts of yesterday is how the picture is supposed to look…dismantling can get a bit messy.  Just watch your step and take your time – is the message. 

And listen for the ‘inner voice’.  This coming weekend Mercury will go Retrograde and that inner calling is about to get much louder for the following six weeks.

Mercury slowing down in the introspective sign of Taurus is a powerful time of getting in touch with deep personal needs and powerful inner resources. 

We’re nearing the time of the next New Moon in Taurus, where solitude and your own inner world will be the perfect sanctuary of support to find your peace and strength to begin again… 

For now, embrace the feedback coming to you from the outside.  From friends, family, signs and The Universe.  It’s very likely it’s one of those very ‘messages’ that will be the direct source leading you eventually into that ‘inner sanctuary’ I spoke of earlier. 

That place within awaits and without a doubt you will be guided.  Blessings on your path.

April 22, 2016, ~ Full Moon

Ah, the beauty of the Full Moon, that which illuminates the dark ~ The Scorpio Moon is upon us. 

“Death Moon” or shall we say:  “Renewal”? 

Two weeks ago we were set free from the intense eclipse month of March, and now we are mid-way through this new cycle.

New seeds were planted, new intention, dreams, and hopes initiated.  We all participated in such a huge clearing through March, and we have stepped powerfully forward over these past weeks.  However, there is still much of the past that needs to be reckoned with. 

Mars has joined Saturn in their Retrograde cycles, and together the two partnering up like this make for a whole lot of self-reflection and inner contemplation.  As well as, a bit of a slower pace than some of us might like. 

It’s like the Universe has her finger playing with the ‘pause’ button… so the next few months may feel a bit like “two steps forward one step back”. 

Times of contemplation raise questions.    What do you truly desire?  What do you want?  What stands in your way?  What do you need to do to come closer to creating your dreams?

The next couple months will strongly support the answers coming through – IF you take the time to ask…

Facing “Karma” is a big one on the table right now and we’re being given – let’s call it “a 2nd chance” to make amends and to make “right” within and without. 

Let’s face it: we are all like children in this School of Life.

Thankfully, there is this perfect design in operation, and as it is, we’ve now entered “the Grace Period”.  A time where we get to go back and reset some stones we may have carelessly kicked over along the way.   

In the end, no-matter what we may think we can ‘get away with’ in life,  it’s “our souls that cannot be compromised”.

During this week we also have Venus joining up with Uranus for their yearly rendezvous.  This is ‘Love & Partnership’ spending a week with the ‘Rebel Fighter for individual rights’. 

Expect your intimate relationships to take a revolutionary leap in a progressive and “true” direction.  Or another potential is a complete break from the existing conditions. 

Separation from “The Known” is the basic theme being played out between them and within our own relationships ~  all in the name of Love.

Bask in the Light and Let’s keep it ~ All in the name of Love. 


 April 15th, 2016 Waxing Half~Moon

FullSizeRender (33)We are currently 8 days out from the New Moon where a ‘new beginning’ was seeded and the light was sparked once again out of darkness.  New consciousness, new awareness, new projects or fresh direction in life was initiated and continues to grow with the increasing light as we get nearer to the Full Moon.  What was birthed in your life? 

At the half~moon time, we are asked to reassess our current situation and make adjustments where necessary.   It is the mid-point between the New and Full Moon.   With the Waxing Moon, the rhythm of the cycle is a time of ‘action‘.  

To:

  1. create
  2. build
  3. and work – towards the ‘peak of light’  

Utilize all the creative energy and inspiration you can muster at this time! 

After the Full Moon, we enter the ‘releasing stage.’  There we are supported to put more energy into ‘letting go.’   For now – this two week period is all about being in the creative flow and building…

Half-Moons can often reveal a ‘crisis’ in the way you are handling your current affairs.  The waxing half~moon is a ‘crisis in action.’ Something or some way you are doing things may need to be adjusted.  Are you being confronted in some way to adjust how you’re currently acting or being?

“Harvest Time” at the Full Moon is one week from now.  At that time we ‘reap what we have sown.’

Pay close attention to how well you are tending to your garden (or not) and nurturing those little new sprouts that came forth through this past New Moon time, a week ago.

Feed your light within and watch it grow and shine forth!
