On December 7 2022 at 8:07pm pacific time we have a full moon in the sign of Gemini (this corresponds to 4:07am UK time). This full moon is packed full of energy supporting us in recognizing our limiting beliefs and rising above them. Now, that might sound like an ongoing theme, because it has been!
The nuance here is that inthe past "raising our vibration" or recognizing outdated patterns may have felt like energetic heavy lifting, and now with the Gemini Full moon it will likely feel much easier. The words that kept coming through as I was recording the podcast were: "Quantum leap forward." We are going to be able to instantly shift our perspective, our beliefs, our vibrations to something higher and better!
I discuss in the podcast the Kuiper Belt object, Altjira, as being in conjunction (in support of and in sync with) the moon in Gemini. Luna is at 16 degrees of Gemini, which in numerology this is the energy of 7. 7 represents wholeness and perfection and is associated with ascension and the ability to move above and beyond any obstacles in life. Altjira is at 17 degrees of Gemini, with reduces to 8 in numerology. 8 is the number of infinity, symbolizing infinite energy and possibilities, also the cycles of time and the recycling and upcycling of energy.
Altjira is an aboriginal term which has been translated by anthropologists and ethnographers to mean 'dreaming' or 'to dream.' It is worth noting that our current definition of dreaming is much more limited than what the aboriginals may have understood. I offer in the podcast that the dream time, which is also associated with songlines, is available to us every moment of every day and is an essential and powerful part of our role in the process of creation. altjira also means ‘eternal’, and so the idea of dreaming also includes the ‘seeing’ of eternal things during 'the dreamtime.'
Altjira was also understood as a deity or primordial being who brought all things into physical form, everything from the landscape, to the plants, animals and people... EVERYTHING was understood to be created by altjira and to also have altjira existing within it.
The Rainbow Serpent or Rainbow Snake is a common deity often seen as the creator God, known by numerous names in different Australian Aboriginal languages. It is a common motif in the art and religion of many Aboriginal Australianpeoples. Much like the typical mother goddess archetype, the Rainbow Serpent is no different. The Serpent creates land and diversity for the Aboriginal people but when disturbed can bring great chaos.
There are many names and stories associated with the serpent, all of which communicate the significance and power of this being within Aboriginal mythology, which includes the worldview commonly referred to as 'the dreaming' or 'the dreamtime.'
The dreaming (or dreamtime) or stories tell of the great spirits and totems during creation, in animal and human form that moulded the barren and featureless earth. The Rainbow Serpent came from beneath the ground and created huge ridges, mountains, and gorges as it pushed upward. The Rainbow Serpent is understood to be of immense proportions and inhabits deep permanent waterholes and is in control of life's most precious resource, water. In some Aboriginal cultures, the Rainbow Serpent is considered to be the ultimate creator of everything in the universe and is represented in rock art up to 6000 years old. Below are some rock art images of Rainbow Serpent. Enjoy!
In sync with this Full Moon I am offering a free healing circle for those on my email list. We will gathering on zoom, I will give a brief presentation of energy healing and my experience of both doing healing and teaching healing. Then we will move into a group energy healing session. Please join my email list to get access to this event and the recording.
Welcome in, and feel surrounded by the invigorating, refreshing and expansive energies of this New Moon in the sign of Sagittarius.
Having just come through the intense energies of eclipse season, culminating in tremendous fixed energy of the Total Lunar Eclipse on November 8, we are now in a time of expansion and new horizons.
We have seven planets in mutable signs during this new moon, offering us a deeper understanding of the truly malleable nature of our reality. Now more than ever we are invited to remember that this physical world is not real, it not set in stone, we are hardly stuck! Instead, our 3d reality is a product of ur collective and individual vibrations of the past, leading us to this "now" moment. This means that everything we are vibrating about today will absolutely create our future!
I discuss the astrological aspects at play in the podcast as well as in the YouTube video below.
I felt the nudge to share more information about Egyptian Goddess Nut (pronounced "newt"). She is generally known as the Goddess of the sky and heavens, who gave birth to 5 children in 5 days: Osiris, Isis, Seth, Nephthys, and Horus. Prior to her birthing these revered members of the Egyptian Pantheon, the ancient Egyptian calendar consisted of only 360 days in a year, had twelve months of thirty days and twenty-four hours within those days. With the extra 5 days of time created on her behalf, we have creating the solar calendar as we know it today, 365 days.
In a broader view, Nut is the Goddess of the sky, stars, cosmos, mothers, astronomy, and the universe. The Universe!
A sacred symbol of Nut was the ladder used by Osiris to enter her heavenly skies. This ladder-symbol was called maqet and was placed in tombs to protect the deceased, and to invoke the her aid as a guardian of souls from the physical world to other worlds. Nut and her consort, Geb, may be considered enigmas in the world of mythology. In direct contrast to most other mythologies which usually develop a sky father associated with an Earth mother (or Mother Nature), Nut personified the sky and Geb the Earth.
I hope that you enjoy the podcast and video! Also, the Lunar Herbal Alchemy Calendars are here! They are being shipped out in sync with this new moon. Check them out here and by clicking the image below :)
Welcome to the only total lunar eclipse of 2022. Positioned perfectly in Scorpio season, this Bood Moon Eclipse offers energetic support for us to digging deeper.
We are invited to revisit our notion of ourselves as energetic creators, stay committed and ultimately also release to the unknown. The ultimate message with this eclipse is "You don't know what you don't know."
This eclipse has a lot of fixed energy, which can feel formidable. Fixed at first looks and feels "immovable". The magical component comes in precisely HOW MUCH fixed energy we have here , supporting us in taking a higher vision of what fixed energy means. Fixed typically feel blocked or stuck. Fixed from a higher octave or energetic standpoint means digging deep and standing strong. Scorpio and other signs are helping us to do this.
In the podcast for this event I discuss the myth and legend of Goddess Epona, a Celtic & Roman Goddess of horses, fertility, healing and animals in general. The earliest we know of her is her worship in Gaul. However we do not know very much about her these early origins. Other than she was a central goddess to the Celtic and Aquitani tribes of Gaul.
The image at right is a relief depicting this horse goddess. She flies above other winged creatures (horses and men) who are above what looks like human kind, women gathered around hearth, with serpents and other animals below them.
She is perfect emissary for the fixed energies of this eclipse. As she is available for healing of all kinds as well as supporting us in our remembering that we are inherently creative beings. We are invited to step up and offer our creativity to the collective with this eclipse!
The lunar herbal Alchemy Calendar is officially published! 140+ pages of full color inspiration. Think of it as your weekly planner with rituals and energetic information to support you in working with each unique lunar cycle. I've created an intro video below. You can purchase planners via this link. They will be mailed the end of November!
The end of October marks the beginning of a truly transformational time for us. I've mentioned previously that the end of 2023 will bring pivotal and powerful moments. We are likely to see a few of these unfold in beautiful, surprising and miraculous ways around this eclipse.
The energetics and astrology support this: we have not only a new moon in the sign of Scorpio, but this new moon is a Solar Eclipse! This means big new beginnings and permanent changes.
The Sun and Moon are conjunct Venus in Scorpio which is helping to bring a balanced bigger picture to our transformation. These are in opposition to Uranus and Taurus ultimately reminding us to stay connected to Gaia and that we ARE the change makers and transformers! Ultimately we are the answers to the problems and questions that we seek.
I discuss in full detail the astrological and numerological energies in my podcast above, as well as provide a brief snapshot in the YouTube video linked at the end of this post.
What I want to share with you next is information about Mary Magdalene and why she is a powerful source of inspiration during these transformational times.
The Venus star point activation which happens just a couple days before this eclipse on October 22nd is 200% about divine feminine energy and supporting us in rebalancing the divine masculine and feminine. Mary Magdalene, as the companion to send a master Jesus, knows inherently how to hold divine masculine and divine feminine imbalance. She is the embodiment of the divine feminine while he is the embodiment of the divine masculine. It is interesting to know that in the Bible as we read it today she is mentioned otherwise. An example in Luke 8:2 tells describes her as possessed:"..and also some women who had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities: Mary, called Magdalene, from whom seven demons had gone out."
Nevertheless and also in the Bible she is the first person to "find" that he has been resurrected. Many who have looked at hidden texts and received channel information understand that Mary Magdalene went through the same rite of passage that Jesus did. She was responsible for supporting him through the crucifixion and helping him resurrect and ascend. This makes perfect sense as we are coming to understand that without divine feminine, divine masculine is rendered inert; and without divine masculine divine feminine is similarly situated.
Mary Magdalene's message for us is less about injustice and more about embodiment. She is letting us know that despite all the chaos and the injustice, everything is always in divine order and the most potent thing that we can do right now is to harness the power of our embodiment as energetic creators. I offer a meditation to support us in connecting with her in the podcast above I hope that you enjoy it!
Finally, below is a link to my newly published Lunar Herbal Alchemy Journal and Calendar for 2023. You can find more information and images of the offering by clicking this link as well as the image below.
The October 9th full moon sets into motion the energies of the eclipse season for the end of 2022. We've been sensing that we live in tremendously potent and transformational times, we will likely start to see some of this work its way from higher dimensions into our 3d world. Put another way, things are shifting rapidly at the end of this year!
Our job is to be diligent, resilient, confident and centered. This full moon is in Aries, opposite sun in Libra. I discuss the astrological aspects at length in the podcast and add the addition of two lesser known stellar beings: Sirius and Pallas. (Sirius is a star and Pallas is considered an asteroid.) These two are together at 14 degrees of Cancer squaring both our sun and la luna. This is a unique placement that supports us in receiving downloads and magical upgrades as to our confidence, love and connection with our true nature: that of being a powerful creator.
Sirius (in my understanding) is the central Sun to our Sun, gathering energy and information from the Galactic Center and filtering it for our Sun to in turn filter and beam in a manner optimal for us to absorb it. I discuss inthe podcast that squaring is an energy of conflict or friction to raise the bar; it can also feel like "break down to break through" energy. Squaring with Sirius poses the potential for new realizations around this full moon. Likely around how much we've been playing it small or living in fear.
This is perfectly coupled with the energy of Pallas, together with Sirius, exact to the same degree! I discuss her myth and legend in the podcast, she was a childhood dear friend to Goddess Athena, who died by accident of Athena's hand (as a result of Zeus' actions). Athena felt so much of a need to make things right she created what is known as the Palladium, in Pallas' honor. The Palladium is a wooden figure/statue of Pallas adorned with the Zeus' Aegis. Zeus himself used the Aegis for acts of magic and protection. Placed on the effigy of Pallas, the Palladium became a source of profound protection and sovereignty.
I mention in the podcast and youtube video that the Trojans, Greeks, Romans and other civilizations sought out and utilized their time with the Palladium to reign powerfully and securely. What's interesting about the Palladium is that it arrives for us on the heels of the Arc of the Covenant (previous new mon podcast here). Both of these objects have something rare and profound in common: they were sought and used for the purposes of gaining sovereignty and power. I offer here, just as I did with the Ark of the Covenant, that the Palladium is something that transcends a physical object, it can be accessed in the astral realm by those seeking to work with light for sovereignty and protection. The mediation in the podcast is one of many methods to connect with Goddess Pallas and her powerful effigy, the Palladium.
I want to also share a few more images related to the Palladium, the first is the image used for the podcast. This shows Goddess Nike (Goddess of victory) offering an egg to a snake entwined around a column that has the Palladium at its top, there is a soldier (presumably important figure) opposite her. It is interesting to consider all of the similarities of this energy with that of the previous eclipse cycle back in early 2022. Goddess Medusa was one of two snake goddesses who came through at that time. In many ways they are here once again, as this eclipse season closes the larger cycle of eclipses for this year.
The second image is of Athena's aegis, with Gorgon/Medusa creature. Note that I mispronounced Aegis in the podcast it sounds like "ee-jis".
The Libra New Moon, which is exact on September 25th 2022, has the potential to be one of the more potent seeding times for this entire year! I explain in the podcast how this new moon is inviting us to remember the larger scheme of energetic events.
These events began in 2021 with Saturn squaring Uranus three different times. We have the same Saturn square Uranus energy carrying from September through December. This will be the completion of the Saturn square Uranus cycle! Everything will be wrapped up by the end of January 2023.
We also have the Libra equinox on the 22nd of September which I will discuss in depth during our live gathering. Make sure you're on my email list to receive the link to join us live. You will also find a recording below.
There are a host of astrological aspects happening precisely with the New Moon on the 25th, The overarching theme is to tap into our hearts and our high hearts and lean in to energetic reflection, self improvement and increased awareness of every single energetic offering we make. Now more than ever we are realizing our internal world is our most powerful point of attraction and manifestation. This internal space is the point of creation where we can manifest anything and everything.
On September 17th we have the first "Yod" which is followed by an exact reconfiguration of this Yod on December 19th. This is a once-in-a-lifetime astrological event. Yods themselves, I discuss in the podcast, are quite aware. Having one repeat itself exactly is to my understanding quite unheard of. This particular energy which takes place roughly from September 17th to December 19th 2022 is going to energize us and invite us to lift our vibrations and visions higher than we ever though possible. The overarching transmission of this Yod/ Ark of the Covenant Portal is that we likely have not even conceived of the miraculous and transformational time we are entering into. This time is both something that exists outside ourselves but it's also something that we will be able to tap into and utilize our vibration to seed and create a beautiful world.
I mention in the podcast that a Yod is not only an astrological event, it is the 10th letter of the alphabet in the Kabbalah. In certain energy healing circle, it is an energetic healing symbol.. It is also quintessentially linked to the ark of the covenant.
In the image to the right, I draw the Yod as I learned in Energy Healing circles. To my understanding the cauldron/vessel symbolizes "the hands of God" into which the Ark of the Covenant is flowing. This energy of the Ark is something we do not own, we ourselves are channels and caretakers of this energy.
The Kabbalah speaks of Yod as a "Tsimsum" which translates to "contractions". A contraction is much like a seed that is super dense but capable of producing miraculous results. It is also the first letter of the name of God, YHVH, and spoken of as the "Finger of God", a divine blessing to have it present in our lives. The Finger of God is also a bit of a challenge because complacency simply isn't an option. We are invited to raise the bar energetically beyond that which we thought was possible. But the ultimate message of the Yod as well as the Arc of the Covenant portal is that the universe is infinitely supportive. Ultimately we understand that it is us that us that gets in our own way by our limited thoughts and beliefs.
While this time of activation will look unique to each individual as every soul is on a distinct path, the overarching theme is an even more profound understanding of the power of divine love, understanding interconnection and oneness and a willingness to imagine dream and create big bright and beautiful things!
We have a full moon in the sign of Pisces on September 10 2022. This full moon is quite special as there is so much alignment and cohesion is the astrological aspects. I discuss these in depth in the podcast and lightly in the you tube below. The theme is converging around us simultaneously opening up to higher dimensions of consciousness as well as being willing to take responsibility for all aspects of our energetic vibration. Our vibration is after all our offering to the plant and the universe for what is possible!
In sync with the vibrations supporting us is deepening our commitment to consciously choose what we vibrate about, we have the opportunity to connect with and activate the Alta Major Chakra. Alta Major is a lesser know chakra, but as I state in the podcast, it is a key to us truly full opening and acting our third eye and abilities to acess higher consciousness.
Alta Major is located where the base of our skull and top of out spine meet. In modern science it is known as the "Reticular Activation System". I always love it when science and spirit converge! I speak about it as a teal colored chakra, receiving all information and filtering it for our own unique asking. Much like a camera, it has an "aperture adjustment" where it will allow as much light in as we are ready for. This means it is safe to work with this energy, also that we would benefit from continuing to ask for and allow more light in!
The image at right comes from The Sacred Geometry Sourcebook. I love it as it not only informs the mediation for this Pisces Full Moon and Alta Major Activation, it reminds us that the sacred geometry of Metatron's cube is so much more. We use Metatron cube in the mediation to connect several chakras and glands and activate hat Alta Major as well and Third Eye, Throat, High Heart Heart and Root. It is fitting to consider the this sacred geometric form also contains the Platonic solids.
(The Platonic solids are named after Plato, the Greek philosopher. The Greeks referred to these five shapes as cosmic solids, because they believed the polyhedra were linked to the cosmos. Each polyhedron was thought to represent an element – earth, fire, water, air, and the universe.) In a more earth based system this shoes would be considered to invoke not only the elements but also the directions in carpeting and calling in sacred space.
My Youtube video offers a quick snapshot of the astrology with a Lemurian card reading for this lunation.

We have a new moon in Virgo on August 27 which we can likely feel coming well before the date! This is because this new moon has some powerful squaring action happening in the cosmos.
We not only have the Sun and Moon in Virgo square Mars in Gemini, but we have potent T-square which involves Saturn in Aquarius square Uranus in Taurus, which have both been ongoing through this year and will likely resolve at the end of 2022 and early 2023. The T-square involves Venus in Leo squaring both Saturn in Aquarius and Uranus in Taurus.
Squares often present challenges, that once overcome offer lighter energies of love, but the challenge IS simply to continue on when we feel challenged! The overarching message from this new moon is to be vigilant about how we are running our energy, both in what we say as well as what we think and how we vibrate. You can dive deeply into a meditation with the podcast above and also check out the brief overview in my YouTube below, note this video also includes an oracle reading.
My upcoming course in Botanical Mediumship begins right after this new moon on August 28th. There are just a couple spaces left, if you feel called to mediumship I hope that you can join me!
We have three energetic, astrological and astronomical events converging around the beginning of August. The first is the Lion's Gate, while the Lion's Gate is actually from the latter part of the July into until mid/late August, many see August 8th as the peak of this portal's energy. We also have a Super Full Moon in Aquarius, the fourth Super Moon in a row! This Super Full Moon is taking place in sync with a Fixed Grand Cross which is bringing us deeper realizations about things that we are ready to release and simultaneously grounding us down with tenacious and empowering energies.
I speak in the podcast about all of these aspects: the Super Full Moon, the Fixed Grand Cross as well as the Lion's Gate. I also mention the binary relationship between Sirius A and Sirius B as well as our Sun and Sirius A. The image at right gives us a better understanding of how Sirius A, the brightest start in our night sky, shares a gravitational orbit with Sirius B, a star which was only discovered by scientists in the 1970's, yet known by the Dogon tribe of Mali, West Africa, to be in existence thousands of years ago.
I also mention the lore and myth behind the Lion's Gate. I will be offering an in-depth live community gathering on August 8th to share fully what I understand about the Lion's Gate portal and it's relationship to Sirius. If you want to join the free live event please subscribe to my email list by clicking here and I will send you the zoom link. Otherwise you can find it after the fact in my YouTube channel :)
The new moon in Leo, which is exact at 10.54am pacific time, is potentially a once in a life time event and opportunity. The energies may feel intense and/or at light speed. I discuss in the podcast the astrological aspects converging to make this new moon as well as the first half of August a powerfully transformational time for us as humans to "level up" in our ability to harness our power as energetic creators. I also mention that some of these energies will carry us through to October of this year, so we have some ongoing experiences to support us in being powerful, comfortable and brightly aware within our new energetic bodies.
I also discuss the presence of Polynesian Goddess Pele. As a volcano goddess, she arrives to support us in the process of shedding our old understandings and downloading new and ancient ways of being and knowing. Pele herself being a primordial force of death and rebirth is perfectly able to provide us the cleansing and upgrading necessary. I lead us through a guided mediation to experience her supportive and transformative powers.
You'll find an image linked to more information below about my upcoming Awakened Dreamer Course. Our first Gathering is with the new moon July 28th 11am PST. We are going to be a smaller group capping at 15, we're now 13! I look forward to having you join me for community and personal exploration :)
