We have a potent full moon/solar eclipse in Scorpio on May 15 at 9:13 Pacific time. Not only is Scorpio the sign of transformation/death/rebirth.. but this eclipse is happening in sync with the rising and activation of Algol, which is a binary star known as the Third Eye of Medusa.
This eclipse in Scorpio has the capacity to reboot and realign us to be completely on our soul's path. I speak about the astrological aspects at play in the podcast but want to re-emphasize that the questions that arise are very much about our soul's truth and soul's path... and the shifts that are occuring within us might be of a more energetic nature. THis means realizations about how we run our energy every day, the things we are carrying as "truths" that are not actually in alignment with our soul's truth. Full moons are times of culmination, realization and preparation for the waning moon cycle of release. Eclipse are super potent full moons, total eclipses are even more potent full moons, and this eclipse is in the sign of Scorpio which has the powerful capacity to reveal to us the "truth beneath the surface."
I also share in the podcast the myth of Goddess Medusa. Medusa is widely known as the scary, fierce snake haired woman who turned men to stone with her gaze. I unpack the myth and offer that she was not a demon, rather a powerful source of protection from patriarchy and from the energy of disrespect and power-over to return to the energy of oneness and power-with. The snakes associated with wicked scary female power harken back to an earlier podcast about goddess Coatlicue, translated to mean "snakes her skirt". An Aztec goddess so scary to those who found her they buried her again.
We are invited to remember that serpent energy is within us all, it is at the center of our spine, known to spiritual and metaphysical folks as Kundalini energy, but also invoked by the modern western medical tradition as the caduceus. It is interesting to note that even in the patriarchal caduceus we have the union of both divine mascualine and divine feminine energies, each serpent intertwining to make a balanced whole.
Also to share with you the quick YouTube video offering I have about this lunar eclipse below. Enjoy!
Welcome to the new moon in Taurus and partial solar eclipse! While this event takes place on April 30, 2022, we will likely feel the effects a week before and 6 months after. Eclipses are not only powerful times of realization, they have the potential "portals". By portal I mean a non-linear experience that can feel like massive acceleration, or profound realization. This eclipse in particular is on the tipping point of our own realizations for not only how powerful we are as creators, but also of what's possible for us to heal and experience intros lifetime.
I discuss in the podcast above the astrological aspects that are supercharging this eclipse: Pluto retrograde, sun, moon, Uranus conjunction as well as north node conjunction. I also mention the significance of eclipses in this year, 2022, as a tipping point that can move us in a nonlinear way towards the age of Aquarius.
In ancient times those in charge of what we now term astrology were either fired, punished or killed if they got the dates of the eclipses wrong. Who knew? This is an indicator that our ancestors understood the power of these occurrences. They sought to harness their energy as well as gather new information from the cosmos. Knowing the date and time of the eclipse was the job of something equivalent of a high priest or scientist. As it took a fair amount of training (without computers) to tune into these cosmic cycles.
We are fortunate today to have tools and computers to help us with these "divinations" we are also encouraged during this eclipse to step away from our understanding of the world as we know it. In this podcast I offer that there are higher dimensions co-existing with us already on this planet. One way of beginning to understand higher dimensions and levels of consciousness is to consider that life exists deep within the earth.
While there are many theories and names for those theories of what the inner earth looks like, I want to offer the Buddhist notion of Shambhala as an entry point to our understanding. The images below are depictions of the worlds that exist both within the earth and on higher planes of consciousness. (note: this are my words, as I interpret these images). Shambhala is both a modern Tibetan Buddhists based out of Colorado, as well as a mythical kingdom written about in ancient Tibetan texts, I am referring to the latter which you can see depicted in ancient images below.
Shambala is a Sanskrit word that means a “place of peace” or a “place of silence.” It is mentioned in Buddhist and Hindu texts. In Buddhism, it is specifically mentioned in the Kalachakra Tantra as a unique place that exists within our own planet. “Shambala is a kingdom where humanity’s wisdom is spared from the destructions and corruptions of time and history, ready to save the world in its hour of need,” a commentary of the Kalachakra Tantra states (Collective Evolution).
The Bon scriptures speak of a closely related land called Tagzig Olmo Lung Ring. The Sanskrit name is taken from the name of a city mentioned in the Hindu Puranas. The mythological relevance of the place originates with a prophecy in Vishnu Purana (4.24) according to which Shambhala will be:
Welcome to the energy of the full moon in Libra, which takes place on April 16th 2022. This full moon is extra powerful in that it arrives right after the Jupiter Neptune conjunction which is exact on April 14th. I speak in the podcast about both of these events, and how they are perfectly in sync to support us in remembering and embracing our energetic role in "Cosmic Justice."
The Jupiter Neptune conjunction takes place the sign of Pisces, once every 166 years. This conjunction will help us to see things more clearly, using our intuition and energetic knowing to move beyond the illusion and delusion of the physical world. This supports the the overarching theme of "Cosmic Justice" as we are receiving energetic downloads to enable us to move fluidly through the outdated structured and belief systems that are crumbling so as to be reborn. This conjunction will be felt from March through may 2022, peaking at or around the 14th.
The full moon which is two days after the exact conjunction adds more nuance and power to the energy of "Cosmic Justice". Libra is traditionally the sign of the scales, balance, harmony, diplomacy, love and justice. As such it adds a grounding energy to the ephemeral conjunction. The Libra full moon will help us to put into action and belief in the 3d world all the downloads we get from the Jupiter Neptune conjunction. Perfect!
As an extra bonus for the Jupiter Neptune conjunction so close to the Libra Full Moon I wanted to offer an oracle reading with my brief you tube video. You can find that below. Enjoy :)
Welcome to the first new moon of the astrological new year! This year not only has the potential to be the most inspirational and transformational yet, but it also comes ripe with the invitation to clease, release and rebalance.
Luna is conjoined the sun (as always during a new moon) in Aries. We also have Mercury and Eris in Aries, supporting us in forward movement for positive and ultimately (many months down the road) revolutionary changes.
The primary focus of this podcast is acquainting us with Goddess Eris. She is both a recently discovered semi dwarf planet. Her discovery led the astronomical community to demote Pluto, a planet recognized as holding power in our solar system for a very long time, to a dwarf planet. I introduce a lens that we might look through to get a glimpse at the broad and oh so necessary power of the divine feminine as found in Eris. Also a nod to Pluto, who is unaffected by the idiosyncratic and go preserving moves of patriarchy/humanity.
The myth that we commonly know of Eris is that she was the only Goddess not invited to a wedding of the Gods (Peleus and Thesis) yet she showed up anyhow. Not admitted when she showed up, she didn't make too much of a raucous, she simply threw a golden apple into the crowd with the words "For the fairest".
This spell of sorts caused the three goddesses present who felt they were legitimately the most beautiful (Hera, Aphrodite and Athena) to fight amongst themselves in an ego driven state, starting a battle that ultimately launched the Trojan war. Was Eris responsible for starting the war? I offer, No. Rather, it was the exposed ego of the squabbling goddesses that threw things into chaos. Eris, was simply pointing out the loss of unity consciousness among the gods and their ego & patriarchally leaning ways. She is here with us now to support us in retiring to unity consciousness. More on that in the podcast above!
Finally get ready for rebirth with the Sacred Earth Retreat!
I am happy to be able to offer a live in person retreat at Seeding Reciprocity retreat center this May 20-22, 2022!
Information is forthcoming, you can find the schedule and reserve your space here or by clicking on the link to the right.
On March 18th we have a full moon in Virgo. This is the 6th full moon at 27 degrees of its sign, pointing us to a larger cycle of time beyond the lunar cycle herself. We are nearing the end of a deeply cleansing cycle, yet still invited to lean into the process of letting go and allowing things to be destabilized so as to ultimately be reborn.
This full moon is powerful in that it invites and welcomes the Jupiter Neptune conjunction in Pisces, which is exact on April 12th 2022. At this full moon, Jupiter and Neptune will be within 5 degrees of each other, which is what astrologers term "conjunct" The exact alignment happens on April 12th but the effects will ripple through the rest of 2022. In this broadcast I discuss how these energies are perfectly aligned with the Virgo Full moon, and why they are ushering us into an even deeper state of release, and ultimately moving through fear into love.
With this full moon we have Goddess Thalassa. A primordial Goddess of the sea, known to have given birth not only to elemental creatures of the sea, but potentially to all creatures everywhere (ourselves included :) Thalassa is unique in that she is somewhat untouched by greco-roman remodeling of more pagan and earth based goddesses.
Nevertheless, she is untouched in the sense that she was "forgotten". Forgotten means left out of 99% of the cultural writings that the modern western world hangs its hat upon. Being left out is somehow still on the same level of being slandered and labeled as evil. Yet, she was so big and vast, they could not take her out with one label.. so instead of slander or misnomer she was somehow just forgotten. This is where things get rich and juicy.
We have only two accounts of Thalassa in Aesop's fables, in both accounts, as mentioned in the podcast, a sailor is cursing her for having caused death to his ship. In both cases, a large and voluptuous woman takes form and rises out of the sea to respond something akin to "Son, you are mistaken, I am as calm if not more calm than the land. You need to understand the element of Air. It was the wind with my water that caused that to happen." Perplexing even today she is speaking of the unseen forces that govern our world, and pointing us back to the laws of the universe and laws of creation. I hope that you enjoy this podcast!
Finally, for my email subscribers this month I have two special Thank YOUs!!! As I am so grateful for you :)
First, a virtually free oracle reading through March from my Etsy store below. This link and the image below should populate with a $6 discount.
Second, a free online gathering for the March Equinox! Join my email list before the 20th of March and I will send you the info to join us live. We will be exploring the power centers of the Earth as they are coming online at this time.
On March 2nd we have a new moon in the sign of Pisces. This new moon has several astrological aspects that make it extra powerful and potent for supporting us in expanding into the power of our innate creativity. We have so much potential in our hands right now: as much as the word is in need of healing we have the opportunity for transformation!
I discuss in the podcast that there are seven quintiles in the chart for this new moon (three are highly unusual!) We are also at the beginnings of the Jupiter Neptune conjunction, which starts at this new moon and will be exact in April 2022. Suffice to say that this new moon will be giving us a glimpse into future potential and possibilities.
I focus in the podcast on the presence of the divine consort of St. Germain: Portia, Goddess of Justice and Opportunity. She is here with us now as we genuinely seek to right humanity's wrongs and to bring things back into the harmonious balance of right relations.
Portia plays an important part in the rebalancing of the divine masculine and feminine. She is the consort to St. Germain, the master of transmutation who offers the violet flame as a means of this endeavor. I discuss both of their energies in the podcast and offer an energetic healing meditation to invite Portia to enter into our 3d reality, as she is an ascended master occupying high realms.
A bit about Goddess Portia: she is coming through right now because "the cycles of life have demanded that the scales of justice be balanced in preparation for the golden age, and since some among mankind had begun to request that divine justice be reestablished."
Portia is the Goddess of Justice and Opportunity She is pointing us to first creating harmony and justice without ourselves, so that we might invite the the circumstance and magic of Opportunity. This new moon is the perfect seeding time. I hope that you can join me :)
Finally! I am opening up an online Oracle Store on Etsy, where I give readings on things like career, love and transformation as well as answer specific questions via tarot, oracle readings and in person sessions. As a Thank You to all my subscribers I am offering virtually free readings from now through the end of march in exchange for a review of my work on Etsy. The coupon link is below (code is BLESSED333). Please email me if you have any questions!
Welcome to the Leo Full Moon :) Such magnanimous energy to support us in continuing to trust and stay present an be joyful.. as we are continuing along the journey of being renewed and reborn. I got the nudge to summarize the main astrological and celestial energies in a quick youtube video, which you can find below. I talk in depth about what's happening in the podcast as well!
The bulk of this post will be introducing Queen Oonagh and the Daoine Sidhe.. Here we go!
Goddess or Queen Oonagh has been termed "the Last Queen of the Fairys"... this is both a current and incorrect statement. She was the last Queen of the Daiine Sidhe (a group or race of Fae) before they retreated into higher dimensions and underground into the earth as humanity descended into dark ages. As such, the is the last seen of the Daoine Sidhe that we humans in the 3d world who live above ground know about. However, the Fae assure us that they have continued to exist in parallel dimensions with us and they have had other queens over time. Nevertheless Queen Oonagh is highly significant because she still exists across time and space to the Fae. As the last Queen known to humanity, she is here in her out of body form to support us in reconnecting with the Fae, specifically the Daoine Sidhe.
The Daoine Sidhe are commonly known to be the descendants of the Tuatha Dé Danann (which translates into “People of the Goddess Danu”). They are known by a number of names, Daoine Sidhe for some translates into "people of the mounds" as they were said to retreat but into earth mounds as the world descended into darkness. They are also called "people of peace", lordly ones, Fair folk, Good folk... among other terms. All of these point to their magical fairy or Fae nature.
The Daoine Sidhe were known as a race of Fae who were shapeshifters and powerful magicians. They are often described as beautiful but also described as hideous beasts.. as they were able to take on whatever form they chose. In early Irish manuscripts, they are described as “gods and not gods.”
As humanity is awakening, it is fitting that now is the time when this race/group of higher dimensional beings would reemerge to support us in co-creating the new earth. They likely have a blueprint beyond our current imagination for his this is to unfold and be accomplished. I offer that it is our opportunity and potential soul's path to open ourselves to communicate and befriend the Fae at large and Daoine Sidhe. How do we do this? By connecting with the natural world, the plant and animal kingdoms that exist on earths skin. By befriending these kingdoms, the door swing open into the realm of the Fae. They often make contact within the play of light and breeze and sounds on the wind. You may meet one being in particular to work with or invite those around you at large to make contact. I offer in the broadcast above that Queen Oonagh is another steward of the Fae and Daoine Sidhe, and not only a wonderful goddess force in herself, but also an avenue into reconnecting with her people. I hope that you enjoy the podcast!
Welcome to this potently transformational new moon! This moon is telling us the story of ourselves, and of what we have to cleanse, heal and reboot so as to be on our optimal path. Likely there's some stuck stuff, so it might be a bumpy ride! The overriding message is hold on; to stay present and grounded. We are invited to remember and to trust that everything is always working itself out for the highest good.
We have a sort of scary but necessarily powerful and oh so healing goddess in our midst: Coatlicue (pronounced “koh-at-lee-kway”). Coatlicue is the Aztec goddess who gave birth to the moon, stars, and her son Huītzilōpōchtli, the god of the sun.
Coatlicue is represented as a woman wearing a skirt of writhing snakes and a necklace made of human hearts, hands, and skulls. Her feet and hands are adorned with claws. Her face is formed by two facing serpents.
I discuss in the podcast the two myths of Coatlicue, one potenlially less gruesome than the other. The one that feels resonant for me is about her goddess power and her ability to birth the time of the 5th Sun. Which the Aztecs knew was the time we are now living in. So to say it in simple terms, she is the goddess force that set in motion the birthing of our current Sun. Our Sun being the deity that gives us prana and life force energy. I discuss the myth of her sacrificing her human self so as to ensure the birth of this 5th Sun. As she sacrificed herself she was already glorified, but she became a powerful goddess with the power to reach across time and space and multiple dimensions.
So here we are! in the beginning of 2022, staring down the barrel of tons of change. Change that we have the opportunity to embrace as entirely empowering. Change that is putting us in alignment with our soul's calling. Nevertheless it is change. We 3d humans tend to have a challenge with change :) As such I was called to re-offer my energetic learning course. It is now a 4 week course hat you can take with me. You'll find both online and live gathering opportunities to interact. The material will be available to you throughout 2022. We embark on January 30th! You can find more information about this offering here's well as in the image at right. Here's the link to join us.
Welcome to the first full moon in 2022! While the full moon is exact on January 17th, the effects can be strongly felt the few days before and after, and more subtly felt the week before and after. So be sure to take a look at what unfolds well beyond the actual date.
It just so happens that this full moon takes place in the sign of Cancer: a cardinal, feminine, water sign, ruled by the moon. All of these qualities signal toward the energy of this lunation. Cardinal signals us to pay attention! Feminine calls us to look within for what are paying attention to. Water reminds us to allow the sensitivity of our emotions and our energetic beings to to signal us "yes" or "no".
This full moon is also ruled by la luna herself, as Cancer is ruled by the moon. So we have extra potent energetic understandings coming though right now. Our sensitivity is heightened with the moon being in her home sign of Cancer, depending on the individual this may feel like we're extra sensitive with our emotions, our thoughts, our physical bodies... or our energetic bodies and extra-sensitivities. The key to remember here is ALL of this sensitivity is good! We are after all energetic beings, we are here to remember what that's all about and how to harness the vast power contained within each of us.
To support us in all of this, we have Sioux Moon Goddess Hanwi. I offer in the podcast her legend and suggest that she is here now to help welcome back, embody and rebalance the divine feminine in each of us. Divine feminine is inward turning, aware of all of the subtleties of feeling and intuition. Hanwi, as the Divine Feminine, rules the darkness of night. Her counterpart Wi, as Divine Masculine, rules the day. Because Hanwi’s light, the moonlight, pierces the darkness, it is said to hold more power than the sun’s daylight.
Hanwi is a nurturing, protective goddess, here to support us in letting go of all the things we are carrying that separate us from our own innate light and from the divine feminine wisdom we intuitively have within ourselves.
When the full moon arrives, it is a time of realization, culmination and cleansing. We can use the power of the moonlight to cleanse ourselves, to face our shadows and fears and release of all that no longer serves. Hanwi keeps us safe, watching over us in the darkness, as we cleanse our energetic bodies mind from heavy energies and release stress, tension and fear.
With the theme of continued energetic sensitivity, I got the nudge to offer a second Energetic Clearing course! We will begin a three week journey together on Sunday January 30th. I know some of you didn't get the chance to join the first round of the course so now is the time to hop into the additional offering! More information here and by clicking the image above.
Welcome to the first new moon of 2022! As I mention in the podcast, we have a full moon in Capricorn, which happens again as the last full moon of 2022. This offers us a sort of "book ending" energetic understanding. Where what we take in now will likely come back to us in 12 months of time.
Put a different way, now is an extremely potent time for putting our energetic stamp on things. That might mean saying no to things that don't work, as well as reaching out into the ethers for the things we are calling into our lives. The idea here is that by the time this next full moon in Capricorn rolls around that there will be a full circle of the energy we are seeding. Let's Go!
I talk in the podcast about Goddess Yemaya/Yamanja. To the Yoruban People she is goddess Yemaya. She is also Ymoga (Mother of the Fishes), Iamanga, and Balianne. She traveled with them from Yoruba to distant lands, comforting enslaved peoples in the holds of ships that took them far away from their homeland in Africa. Today she is also known and celebrated under many other names, including the virgin Mary (Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception), Stella Maris (Star of the Sea), and Our Lady of Regla...the list goes on.
Originally Yemaya was a river goddess of the Yoruba in Nigeria, far from the ocean. She was a nature spirit, mother of all of the Orishas (helping spirits) as well as an Orisha herself. She was both a nurturing, powerful and when need be fierce guardian spirit. An Orisha manifests itself as a force of nature. When her people were hoarded onto the slave ships, Yemaya went with them, thus morphing into the Goddess of the Ocean.
Her ties to pre-chrisitan and pre-catholic religion are strong. She manifests as the divine mother of all sentient beings. From Africa, she is dark skinned as the people of that region knew her. She takes the form and energy of the mysterious and powerful Black Madonna, which has been readopted and empowered by some more radical sects of the Catholic church today.
Also, I want to share my new course beginning 1/08:
Energy Clearing for Energetically Sensitives and Everyone!
You can find the curriculum and sign up via the image on left.
Looking forward to seeing you on January 8th!
