“Therefore, dear Sir, love your solitude and try to sing out with the pain it causes you. For those who are near you are far away… and this shows that the space around you is beginning to grow vast…. be happy about your growth, in which of course you can’t take anyone with you, and be gentle with those who stay behind; be confident and calm in front of them and don’t torment them with your doubts and don’t frighten them with your faith or joy, which they wouldn’t be able to comprehend. Seek out some simple and true feeling of what you have in common with them, which doesn’t necessarily have to alter when you yourself change again and again; when you see them, love life in a form that is not your own and be indulgent toward those who are growing old, who are afraid of the aloneness that you trust…. and don’t expect any understanding; but believe in a love that is being stored up for you like an inheritance, and have faith that in this love there is a strength and a blessing so large that you can travel as far as you wish without having to step outside it.”

Happy Birthday to one of my favorite people to ever inhabit this planet. His presence is forever felt.
“A Black Moon occurs when two new moon’s fall in the same month. On September 30th, the New Moon will peak in Libra.
September’s Black Moon is filled with positive aspects and plenty of opportunities. In fact, the entire week leading up to the Black Moon and the days that follow it, are going to be extremely positive and peaceful.
The energy of this Black Moon is so supported by the other planets and it is very likely we will all be experiencing great epiphanies, opportunities and even, miracles.
In fact, this Black Moon is going to deliver an extremely positive force, helping us to manifest all of our greatest dreams, wishes and desires.
If you have been looking to change or shift something in your life, if you have been building new ideas or projects, this Black Moon is really going to give you an amazing push in the right direction.
Whatever has been troubling you, whatever has been shrouded in doubt and confusion may also become clearer to you around the time of this Black Moon.
If you are in doubt about anything in your life, you may find it beneficial to wait to see what energies and what opportunities the Black Moon brings you.
Now, this Black Moon is going to be helping us all to awaken to these endings, accept them and perhaps also feel liberated by them.
Overall, the Black Moon is going to bring an extremely positive force and is going to help all of us to change directions in our lives in some way.
This is definitely a welcomed change and one that is going to help us finally bring a close to all that we no longer need. This is going to help us spring forward in the right direction with clarity and positivity and will help us all to feel a burst of fresh energy and inspiration.
Pay attention to what transpires for you around the Black Moon, for it is sure to be guiding you towards your highest path.”

“The Lunar Eclipse in Pisces is an emotional high tide. It makes me think of being on a surfboard, scudding across a beast of a wave as the crest begins to fold and you’re wondering whether you’re going to stay upright or be flung head over heels by the force of the water.
The Moon is in a tight conjunction to Chiron which means we are very sensitive to being hurt. In Pisces we are wide open with no defenses, especially as the Moon squares warrior Mars.
In fact, it may be the case that we are pushed to let down our defenses and really allow ourselves to feel.
Chiron is both the one who wounds and the one who heals the wound. The wound itself is the way to healing – like cutting open an infected sore until it bleeds clear…knowing that sometimes the path to healing must begin with a painful cut…
And our part is to surrender, to accept that healing is needed and necessary, to put trust in the universe that what comes is for our benefit.
There is something sacred about this painful process. The Gods haven’t abandoned us, they are carrying us. They are the giant wave beneath our feet…”

“The Full Moon in Scorpio is bringing light to all the shadow dynamics that lie underneath the surface- the very things we don’t want to look at or have been avoiding dealing with are likely to come to Light right now.
The Full Moon is at the midpoint of Saturn and the North Node- which is pretty potent on many levels…Both Saturn and the North Node push us beyond our edge- and it’s not the comfy, cozy familiar space we are used to.
Many of us spend a good deal of our present lifetime resisting our Saturn/North node growth- and yet it’s only when we get aligned with it that we will start to evolve into new directions, dimensions and frequencies…
Steering clear of power/control dynamics with others and instead using this energy to dig deep and get to the root of patterns playing out that are Sourced within is the only way out and through.
This is not a time to act impulsively or restlessly or to react out of anger- but instead a time to reign it in, think of the long term consequences and get your lower will aligned with your Higher Self and it’s trajectory.”

Every New Moon is a cosmic doorway to a fresh start; New Moons allow us to shed old skin, and break ground for new cycles. The start of every lunation marks the ideal time to pursue an emotional and spiritual reboot, and this is especially true for a New Moon occurring in the sign of the pioneer, warrior and pathfinder. Raw and impetuous like the new life that must fight and compete to ensure its own survival, Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac for a reason; without its proactive, assertive push, there would be no separation from the source. No manifestation. No evolution. No existence. It’s this very same push that initiates us into a brand new phase of self-actualization, urging us to reclaim the Self, to fulfill our individual destinies and to do what it takes to overcome our inner and outer struggles.”

“This year’s Spring Equinox arrives right in between eclipses. So much energy is invoked during the wild and changing winds of eclipse season. Moments that feel fated, moments that are eery, enchanting and exquisitely potent for our healing process. We are asked to step up our game and step into our lives in ways that may scare us, excite us and rile us. No matter what we do, the equinox is here to awaken us. Awaken us to the change that is coming no matter if we are ready or resistant. Awaken us to energy that needs to bud, burst and bloom through us. Awaken to the fact that we are seasonal beings that need to run with the wild rhythms we live within.”

“This Pisces New Moon on March 8-9 is not only a Super Moon, meaning it is closest to Earth and so has a stronger effect on the tides and our bodies and emotions, but also the first of four eclipses this year…
All eclipses disrupt the Earth’s electromagnetic fields and therefore each of ours… A solar eclipse occurs at a New Moon when the Sun, Earth and Moon’s planes align with each other, gathering and focusing their energies into a new shape, a new resonance.
A new door opens, a new story begins. Just as a regular New Moon is a time to plant new seeds, a solar eclipse is a time to let go of old, stagnant energy shells, so the new life energy that’s been gestating within can begin to grow.
As we end this astrological cycle with a solar eclipse, the electromagnetic fields that have been resonating in all of us change. And we are changed.
It is time to Evolve.”
Happy Birthday my Beautiful Brother! One Love

“January 31st, 2018 brings us an extremely potent Super Blood Blue Moon Eclipse in the sign of Leo.
The last time we experienced a Super Blood Blue Moon Eclipse was 36 years ago, but having this type of Eclipse in the sign of Leo is extremely rare and has not occurred in hundreds or possibly even thousands of years.
Whenever we have a rare celestial event such as this, we feel the energy strongly and it has the potential to cause huge ripples and waves in our lives.
The January Super Blood Blue Moon Eclipse is not only going to help bring resolution and closure to the last half of 2017, it is also going to open and activate a new energy that we are all going to be working with until the next round of Eclipses in July and August 2018.
If things get intense, or your sense of security is shaken up under the presence of this Eclipse, remember that this is just so you can make some positive changes in your life. You always have an inner power and inner strength, and tuning into lion or lioness energy and finding your pride is really going to help you.
This Total Lunar Eclipse carries a strong feminine energy and will really help you to connect to that intuitive, softer heart-centered place we all have inside.
In fact, the strong feminine energy around this Lunar Eclipse is likely to bring about global changes for women as well. Under the presence of this Eclipse, we may experience a rise up of feminine power and a focus on equal rights for women.
The Super Blood Blue Moon Eclipse is definitely a special celestial event that will really shape the direction and energy of the year ahead. The best thing to do is sit back, surrender and join the Universal flow.”

“If you have been following along, you may have noticed that January has been an extremely busy month! It really seems that the heavens are putting on a show for us as we welcome in the new vibrations and new energy of the year.
The Capricorn New Moon on the 16-17th is no different, and is definitely going to be dazzling us with a line up of five celestial bodies by its side.
At the time of the New Moon, there will be a line up of the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Saturn, and Pluto all in the sign of Capricorn. This rare alignment is known as a stellium.
The January New Moon energy is really going to help all of us to take a leap forward and to use our hard work, skill and knowledge to climb higher and reach further.
This is very ambitious energy that will really help all of us to move forward in the direction of our highest dreams and wishes.
This is the perfect time to take action in your life and begin making small, practical changes in order to bring more joy, abundance, love, success, and whatever other feel-good emotions you want into your life.
Capricorn is a very practical sign, so this is not necessarily about making bold, shocking moves in our lives (unless we feel called to do so), rather it is about making small yet effective shifts to get us closer to where we want to be.
For the last few years we have really had to focus on clearing and planning, but now we are getting a lot of support to actually put our plans into action.
January is one of the most action-focused months of the year, so use this energy to your advantage and don’t be afraid to push yourself a little higher.
New Moon’s are all about setting intentions and planting seeds for the future, so think about what you want to grow in your garden and give your wishes to the night sky.
There are such strong cosmic forces all through January and they are all on your side and there to support you.
Let the world know what you need, let the New Moon know what you need, and then open yourself to the guidance that follows.
Even though it doesn’t always feel like it, life is always on your side, you just have to learn to find the joy as you navigate the highs and lows of your very own mountain.”
