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.

The Horn of Plenty

Well , we are right around the corner from September which in astrology is often considered the month of harvest.  Often displayed as a healthy young virgin with a shaft of wheat representing the earthy yet discerning and analytical sign of Virgo!

The actual day of the New Moon in Virgo will be on September 5, 2013 at 4:36 am PST.  This is a fabulous new moon activating the Grand Sextile pattern (Star of David – six pointed star in water & earth signs) which we have in full swing as of  July 22, 2013.  Set your intentions in concise and detailed languaging as the avenues for clear, practical, and thoughtful communication is now available!  It will be followed two weeks later by the Harvest Full Moon across the signs of Pisces/Virgo on September 19, 2013 at 4:13 am PST.  The Harvest Moon offers us well-earned rewards for work that is diligently done and in service to others.  It is a time to be festive and enjoy the harvest with our community!

One of the many virtues of Virgo is to give gratitude for all that one already has materially, in community with others and in spirit, and to further the gratitude for that which one has not yet received.  The Pisces component adds forgiveness (for self and others) & surrender to the process!  Now indeed the Horn of Plenty is full, for from gratitude, forgiveness, and knowing when to surrender, a beautiful and colorful garden can truly grow & blossom.

The next Astrological Event will be at my place in Pacific Beach on Sunday, September 1, 2013 beginning at 4pm PST.

Fee:  $33 for Lecture/Med and a 10 min. mini-reading; $15 for lecture/Med only

Please contact me if you wish to attend, call into the conference call # or cannot attend at all but wish to pay ahead and receive all of the recordings via email.   If this is your first time attending, please email me or text me your astrological information (day/mo/yr, place and time of birth if you have it!)

 Blessings to ALL,

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!

Gather the Knights of the Round Table!

NEW MOON in Aries & First Lunar Eclipse of 2013

When: Sunday, April 7, 2013
Time: 4pm
Where: San Diego, CA 92110
Fee: $33 for lecture/short med., and mini-reading
$15 for lecture & meditation only

The first topic will be the NM in Aries (actual date of the NM is April 10th at 2:35 am) which is part of a larger cycle involving Uranus, Sun, Venus, and Mars in Aries being joined by the Moon! It is the Time of the Hero. For some a giving birth to a newfound courage, and for others a further developing of the hero that alredy resides within. As we have just had a very powerful Full Moon in Libra (March 27, 2013) bringing balance to all of our relationships is key. It is time to gather our forces and discuss the issues ahead, albeit heated issues, yet to do so with the utmost diplomacy!
The second topic on the agenda is the first of this year’s eclipses, a Lunar Eclipse across Scorpio/Taurus!

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