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.”

“As one world dies, another is born. As one Age of the world passes away, a new Age is being born in secret places of the heart…
We are the midwives and healers, grandmothers and grandfathers of this new world, for each of us is bringing in this new collective life force.
The more whole we are, the more we know and love ourselves, the more embodied we are, the more aligned and true this new energy will be, laying a strong foundation for the Age of Aquarius…
So with this New Moon in Aquarius, we have to stay true to our uniqueness but drop the exclusivity that makes us think we’re better than others. Aquarius is concerned with the group Mind. That means how we all contribute to this Mind.
Many of us want to live in a grown-up world, where people actually are courteous, creative, cooperative and capable. Where each of us is responsible for the world we live in.
To live otherwise is to act childish in the worst possible ways. That is what our patriarchal society would have us do. Stay children and we’ll take care of all your needs IF you do what you’re told. This old story has had its day.
We each know in our hearts that the most important things in life are love and our connection to each other, our animal cousins and the Earth. So let’s expand our sense of community to all these realms and find that future story that benefits all of us.”
“The June Full Moon falls on the 9th in the fire sign of Sagittarius, bringing intensity, transformation and optimism.
Sagittarius energy is wise and expansive. Whenever the Full Moon is in Sagittarius it amplifies our thoughts and feelings and brings more information to the surface. After this Full Moon, there is going to be a lot more clarity about what changes or adjustments need to be made and consequently there will be a peace that will follow.
2017 is a year of new beginnings and as we reach the midway point of the year, things are going to be speeding up to help us get started on this new chapter of our lives.
Because Saturn is involved in this Full Moon, there is also going to be a need for us to really understand the karmic lessons at play so we can move on and move forward.
Whatever stirs for you around this Full Moon, know that it is part of your karmic journey and part of what your soul has come here to learn.
While the June Full Moon will be guiding us to shift and transform so we can start a new beginning, it will also be filling our lives with positive, expansive and optimistic energy.
The June Full Moon is potent, yet loving and will be there to guide you through the next few weeks so you can clear the past and welcome in a bright new future.
The trick with navigating this Full Moon is to focus on finding the joy and keeping and open mind. The more you can view things from an optimistic and open point of view, the easier it is going to be to understand what you have come to learn.
While life is about learning and evolving it is also about finding the joy, as the poet Hafiz says- “stay close to anything that makes you glad you are alive.”

“This New Moon will show us ways to be efficient as we reform what we need to, as we discover elements of the new life that began to open several weeks ago. Since the Solar Eclipse in Pisces “the race has begun,” and there’s no time for hesitancy or unnecessary considerations. Do what needs to be done quickly and efficiently, and let the ghosts of the past flow down the time stream. Forgive much, let go of much, give away all you no longer need, and await the revelation to come.
Because of our reflections and rewinds during the Venus retrograde period from early March to now, we’re already reprogramming our subconscious minds regarding how old relationships liberated us, or freed us from responsibilities we no longer needed. The recent Mercury retrograde helped us look back to see what we had buried that opened our present life, and we now have had ample opportunities to re-shape our minds in forms of receptivity so that we could fulfill some promise awakened in the Summer of 2016.
We can now make rapid progress in many areas; the trick is to see what gardens you can tend that promise the best harvest, while joining with others to overcome any lack of potency in action. Those who are inspired can reclaim an opportunity they thought was lost, and the coming weeks promise more “spiritual linkage through emotional stress” as well as blessings after the death of useless things. A new day is dawning and this dawn will last a few months, so be awake and alert to expanding your heart, your Light, your Fire, and your inspiration.
What are you dedicated to? The old life has died, even if there are echoes of memories to be cleaned up, cleaned out, and blessed that come forth occasionally. The new day has in fact already dawned, and a new way of life has been revealed to each of us. The chaotic past is now rapidly moving down the timestream, so face forward, as there are new opportunities as well as old promises to be redeemed. Be the Light of your most genuine and enjoyable self, and say goodbye to the past that’s already gone.”

“Please, mother of mercy
Take me from this place
and the long winded curses
I keep here in my head
Words never listen
and teachers, oh, they never learn
but I’m warm from the candle
though I feel too cold to burn
He came from an island
and he died from the street
and he hurt so bad like a soul breaking
but he never said nothing to me
So say hello to heaven, heaven, heaven…
So say hello to heaven, heaven, heaven…”

“Full Moon in Scorpio is that one time in the year when the Moon reflects back to us in full glory our deepest, feminine water power.
Water is the element most impressionable, most reflective, most emotional, most empathetic, most patient…
With uniquely having three totems, the Scorpion, the Eagle, and the Phoenix, you have a choice as to how you will express your emotional power outwardly.
Will you sting self and others, will you fly above the daily pettiness and observe from your lofty perch utilizing perfect force and timing, or will you conquer personal obstacles by rising from your own ashes and being spectacularly, almost miraculously reborn?
When the power of alchemical Scorpio shines down upon us, we create at heroic levels and are impassioned to achieve what we desire.
Time to sweep the carcasses of the past out, free the magnificent phoenix within, and begin to tell a new story that is our life reborn. The truth and the releasing of that old, deep well of feeling will set your wisdom free.”
