Evolving Realities

It occurs in the penetrating, transformative sign of Scorpio.  It is one of the three water signs (Cancer, Pisces, and Scorpio), though its motivations and emotions can at times be hidden.  There is very strong self-protection here, but if the trust is earned, the loyalty will always be there.  I often think of the Scorpio energy as the deep rivers/streams that run beneath the earth’s surface, and thus it is that journey to the ‘Center of the Earth’ or to the center of one’s ‘Being’.  There can be very dark places here that one needs to transform, bringing darkness into light or the unknown or unresolved into meaning and understanding.  Is it the hero’s journey or the fool’s?  Both signs of Aries and Scorpio are ruled by the planet Mars and thus require decisive action and personal integration.  Aries can be more impulsive but also pure in its motives in being the hero, whereas Scorpio can have a hidden agenda or a well thought through pathway in taking on the ‘hero’s role’, and oftentimes it is a search for redemption.  That idea that every ‘soul’ on Earth has some measure of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome) and is here on the planet to essentially heal and thus become more physically and spiritually free and lighter!


This is an amazing Eclipse as it hits the points of the Star of David (referred to as a Grand Sextile in the astrology world) which reached fullness back in July 2013!  This six pointed star of energy opened up a portal, a shifting of realities from an old framework into a new one, where we find ourselves simultaneously living the old life, experiencing the old emotional patterns, while at the same time the new us with our new realities is being born.  That is why we have moments of exhilaration and moments of sadness.  The key here is to not supress anything, instead to welcome the emotions, knowing that as they come up and you face them, that is when the clearing begins to occur.


As Rumi so aptly puts it: “The wound is where the light enters you.”


We are all in this transformative process right now and the energies around us took a deeper dive into this death & rebirth at the end of September when Mercury entered the sign of Scorpio (where it will retrograde).  This energy wave is building into the Lunar Eclipse across the signs of Libra/Aries all day Friday, October 18, 2013 holding an incredible vortex of energy open between the Lunar Eclipse and the Solar Eclipse on November 3, 2013.  Then add to the mix Mercury now in the shadow of its upcoming retrograde which begins on Monday, October 21, 2013 through November 10, 2013.


Mercury is all about our communication habits, and in Scorpio it asks us to take the time to think clearly through things until we get to the right answer for us. That means we may not be able to respond right away, and that is okay, for deep thinking and processing is what is required now.  A planet appearing from the Earth vantage point to be going retrograde or backwards in the heavens gives us an inward glance and in this case, into our world of thought (ruled by Mercury), there is an internalization of communication that occurs.  It is good to apply re before our words, i.e. reapply, restore, repair, reanalyze, reintroduce, rewrite, etc.


We are swimming in very deep waters now, where the unconscious easily merges with the conscious.  Where deeper truths can emerge, and hopefully when Mercury goes direct on November 10, we can begin to integrate these deeper truths into the ‘new reality’ that is emerging, one step at a time!! We will be aided and challenged here by the Uranus/Pluto square occurring on November 1,2013.  Very powerful, soul level realities and relationships are revealing themselves in October & November, and you will have time to pause, reconsider, and further acknowledge and integrate them into your ‘new realities’ through the many retrogrades occurring between now and July 2014.

Evolving Relationships


The New Moon in the highly artistic, social, charming, and balance-seeking sign of Libra!  The actual day of the NM is on Friday, October 4th at 5:34 pm.  This is a Cardinal New Moon that fully activates the Grand Cross energies with Pluto in Capricorn, Uranus in Aries, and Jupiter in Cancer.  Yes, it is very powerful when the Sun and the Moon together charge this astrological geometrical energy pattern as they are doing with this New Moon.  The Lunar Eclipse of the Sun & Moon which follows it on October 18 in the signs of Aries and Libra are carrying the energy through and creating a further opening of the Venus & Mars retrograde cycles that are following it when Venus goes into its prospective retrograde sign of Capricorn in November 2013, and Mars moves into it retrograde sign of Libra in December 2013.  Just a reminder:  Venus and Mars are about RELATIONSHIP!!
The Grand Cross play has already begun, it did so when Venus, as the first planet to enter Libra, did so from August 16 – September 10.  We then got a good glimpse of what was going on in the relationship corner of our lives.  Keep in mind, that relationship encompasses ALL of the relationships in our lives that we put time & energy into, partnership, family, work, friends, co-workers, employers.  The stage has been set with Venus, then Mercury entered Libra on September 9 and will be there through the wee hours of the morning on September 29.  The Sun will be in Libra from September 22 – October 22 to really spice things up!  Mercury has to do with our communication skills in our relationships.  Breakdowns happen because something isn’t functioning properly, there’s a lack of equality or understanding (Libra), and the Sun can takes things personally, triggering an ego response.  Ultimately though, Libra truly values a harmonious, peaceful, and interactive environment, thus will do what it takes to bring things back into balance or change the environment.  Yes, we are each feeling this and probably at a deep.
The last planet to enter Libra will be Mars on December 7, 2013  (the sign it will retrograde in) to July 26, 2014.  Obviously we have a choice to be active participants in the unfoldment of our lives or to be passive ones, though taking the passive route this time will probably not work well, if it works at all!  Think of Libra as the International Peace Keeping force, The United Nations of Humanity, a  forum that needs to involve everyone and requires equanimity.  Too much control (which can be Capricornian), too reactionary to cooperate (an Aries trait), or licking one’s emotional wounds & concerned only with one’s tribe (Cancer) can get in the way of the process of equal negotiation and diplomacy.  Living in Harmony & peace are not just words, they are a way of being where respect, honoring, and love is given to all beings!  Unfortunately, we’ve got to burn through our ego’s and past ‘trespasses’ to get there.  On this journey, I would like to remember what a well known author Marianne Williamson once said, ” How would love show up here”.
Finally, Mercury is retrograde in the deep transformative water sign of Scorpio from October 21 – November 10, 2013!
 Hold onto your seats, as this Mercury cycle involves most of the planets!!  The very stratosphere of your beings and this planet is being re-configured.
I feel like I am on a mythological journey with Jason & the Argonauts!!

New Moon In Cancer & Summer 2013 Themes! Followed by July 4th Party at my Place!!

Where: My place in Crown Point
Date: Thursday, July 4,2013
Time: 2-5 pm, followed by Party
Fee: $33 for lecture, short meditation & 10 minute mini-reading
$15 for lecture & meditation

Summer is definately here and we entered it going straight into a Mercury retrograde in the watery, nurturing, caretaking sign of Cancer. Mercury went into its shadow around June 9  and is retrograde from June 26 through July 20, 2013! The New Moon itself begins on Monday, July 8 at 00:14 am. It is the first new moon since January 2013 where we are no longer embedded in the Saturn retrograde in Scorpio, as Saturn finally goes direct on July 7th!! Themes from back in January could therefore begin popping up three to four weeks prior to this new moon and continuing through the Mercury cycle which completes on August 3, 2013. Also, there is a lot of Cardinal energy (signs of Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) building with the Full Moon on June 23 through mid-August. Action and decisiveness is part of this cycle as well as listening and holding an emotional space for yourself and others. While Mercury is in retrograde through July 20, we have time to pause, stop & reflect along the way, to reorganize, re-do, regenerate, and re-commit to that which matters most to us. In this case it will be whatever we consider our family for many that is our ‘Soul Family’ and our home (thinking of moving & setting plans in motion – don’t begin process though until July 9th. New connections can also be made at this time as we are now following Lunar Time and that comes only from the connections of the heart!

Please let me know if you are interested in joining me at my home for this event!

Bring something to share if you are staying for the party afterwards.

SUNDAY, JULY 7TH starting at 4pm!

From Darkness into Light

When: Sunday, June 2, 2013
Time: 4pm
Where: Lydia’s place
San Diego, CA
Fee: $33 for lecture/short med., and mini-reading
$15 for lecture & meditation only

I will be preparing you for the New Moon in Gemini (actual date of the NM is June 8 at 8:56 am). By the time of this new moon all the players will have been set in motion!

This began with Venus (Goddess of love, beauty, creativity, and money) entering Gemini on May 9, followed by Mercury (communication & transportation) on May 15. The Sun (one’s personal identification with the sign language, Gemini) will join in the fun on the afternoon of May 20. Jupiter’s energy which is in Gemini right now through the late afternoon of June 25, 2012 will become more easily accessible beginning the evening of May 20! Jupiter is about expansion on the personal, relationship, and global levels. There may at this time be more than one choice available to us, and with Gemini (the twins) do not limit yourself to just one unless you feel guided to do so:) Prior to this week beginning (which is right now!!!) we are still in the inner realms clearing the past wound patterns & emotional baggage that we have each been carrying around for probably lifetimes. Tiredness, lack of motivation (except when it comes to spiritual endeavors), and requiring more personal rest time have been effecting many of us this past week. Continue to process through the weekend and get deeply clear on your emotional health/well-being and personal dreams. Mars will be the last planet to enter Gemini on May 31, and even though we are getting the benefits of Jupiter’s blessings, it is still crucial to continue to remove (and with Mars that could entail physical removal) of any remaining blockages in one’s mental/emotional and physical bodies, and giving gratitude and practicing loving kindess every step of the way!!

We also have the third Eclipse of the year across the signs of Sagittarius/Gemini on Friday, May 24, 2012. It is a Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon, offering windows of opportunity that are especially powerful from the evening of May 20 – through the late afternoon of May 30 into the NM in Gemini on June 8. As we move into the Eclipse energies beginning this weekend of May 18/19, do your best to release as much as possible and set very clear intentions for personal & interpersonal growth, well-being, and happiness. This will take us into the powerhouse energies of June & July!!!

Lastly, Mercury is retrograde in the nurturing, caretaking sign of Cancer from June 26 – July 20, 2013!

Snacks very welcome, and if you have your own recording equipment (Iphone, Droid, Galaxy, Blackberry, etc) bring it so you can have it at your fingertips!

If you are new to this, please email me or text me your full name and birthdata (day/mo/yr, time and place of birth).

Please RSVP only if you absolutely plan on attending! Seating is limited! Thank you

For those who are not able to attend in person or prefer via conference call, please check in with me to let me know that you want to be on the conference call, so I can set it up ahead of time.

I suggest everyone visit my website a couple times a month to check out any new postings!
Through Darkness into Light, God/Goddess speed!

Build the New Foundations & The Light Will Grow and Deepen

As we move into the first Eclipses of 2013, these are the energies we have before us:
I feel like I am Chekov on the bridge of the Starship Enterprise saying “Steady as she goes Captain”!

We have our first hint of the Taurus strength & endurance with Venus entering the sign on April 15, to be followed by the Sun on the afternoon of April 19, and Mars on April 20. Yet the Aries energies are still very much at play though April 21, with Mercury having entered Aries the night of April 13 and the Sun/Mars conjunction which occurred on April 17 to be followed by Mercury/Uranus conjunction on April 20. The Aries transits have involved many planetary contacts since we first moved into Spring March 20/21 along with the New Moon in Aries on April 10. And they are all moving us towards the 3rd Uranus in Aries/Pluto in Capricorn square on May 20, 2013 (we had the first & second of these squares back in June and September 2012). We got to first experience the Capricornian influence of this equation in our lives starting back in November 17, 2012 through most of January 2013. Now with so many planets in Aries, we get to build upon the visions that were materializing in our lives during that time, in both literal & psychological forms, with courage and pioneering insight directed to the future, yet also grounded in the present moment. Aries can be high strung, unruly & unpredictable, triggering violence, accidents, fires, as well as unprecendented acts of courage, and single-minded focus. With Uranus directly involved the unpredictability increases. Along with it so do the opportunities for further awakening and development of the human potential for understanding, humanity, and greatness.

The movement into Taurus is further preparing the ground with the First Lunar Eclipse of 2013 with Sun in Taurus & Moon in Scorpio on April 25, to be followed two weeks later by the first Solar Eclipse in Taurus on May 9! All of this is thoroughly activating the great depths of Saturn in Scorpio and Pluto in Capricorn. There are many faces/sides to this Saturn, vengeance or rehabilitation, passion or addiction, death and rebirth, love or hate, with transformation being the only abiding destination. Alongside it Pluto’s energies reaches across generations & socio-economic lines to leave no stone left unturned! The darkest layers of society and indeed our very psyche are being unearthed to be dealt with, so that we can finally heal, and allow the lightness and the joy to shine! The only place we can start is with ourselves and our willingness to change and grow. And please remember: Darkness is simply an absence of ‘Light’, let’s choose to turn and keep the light switch on! I’m ready, are you:)
“Yes, steady as she goes Chekov”
