With this Solar Eclipse, we arrive in the first half of what I would offer as the most powerful eclipse sequence to appear in this lifetime (the past 200 yrs). With it, we are being ushered into a new era.
Depending on how you look at the world you might feel like you're being forced and things are being torn apart... or you might feel like you've just come through some big challenge only to be met with another challenge .. that you somehow already know you can move through ...you might also feel like you are being offered opportunities for higher vibrations. Eclipses are known for their transformational, beyond linear time and space, realizations and occurrences. That could be a serendipitous occurrence, the ability to see things in a totally different way, a complete or sudden shift of work life circumstances, or a dream that catalyzes a realization.
Not only are we in an eclipse season through October and November, but we are in a new series of eclipse seasons with the Nodal Axis Shift, and we are in a season that Pluto is making a grand appearance in. Let's break the latter two down a bit more.
The Nodal Axis Shift happened on 7/25/23, when we moved out of the Taurus/Scorpio axis and into the Aries/Libra axis. One overarching theme around this energetic shift is that we were encouraged and supported in the last 1-2 years to have realizations about our connection to earth with the North Node in Taurus as well as to see the secrets that have been hidden, both about dark and light as it relates to earth with South Node in Scorpio. The shift signals that it is time to take those realizations, and with North Node now in Aries, to act on them.. to claim our personal power. With South Node now in Libra, we are supported in seeing how the old ways of "balancing" are sometimes systems of control. This Nodal Axis shift supports us in becoming truly empowered.
This is the first eclipse in this Aries/Libra Axis sequence, so we will likely be seeing some themes and things that are up for remembering, release, revisions, as well as renewal. As I mention in the podcast, eclipses work across time and space, so the linear timelines and confines of our currently co-created reality are able to be instantly overwritten. If overwritten seems like a strong word, it might be better to say things will highlighted for personal realization :)
This segues us into Pluto's strong activity during this eclipse. Not only has Pluto been squaring the Nodes from March through November this year, but it is ushering us through an epic dance of death and rebirth as it changes signs from Capricorn to Aquarius.
Pluto is not only squaring the North and South Nodes that are activated during this eclipse.. as it is also stationing direct as it comes out of retrograde. stationing means we will feel A LOT of Plutonic energy. With its connection to Spica and Arcturus, Pluto also ushering in an intuitive and harmonious balance of divine masculine and feminine energies into each of us. I called this podcast Libra Solar Eclipse: Cosmic Justice, as it felt like such and beautiful convergence of Pluto, Libra, and Eclipse energies.
May we live long happy lives to fully experience the new world we are creating!!
This full moon contains alignments of planets and asteroids that provide feelings of intensity and/or urgency. I speak in the podcast about th sSun, Moon, Pluto, Mars, and Arcturus, as those are the primary activations happening during this time. I wanted to briefly cover a few astrological alignments in more depth in this blog post.
1- A bit more on the T Square that runs through November This year and will be exact in October. We have Pluto square North and south nodes. North node is conjunct Eris (myth reminds us she revealed the use of ego and separation to the God on Olympus and caused the Trojan War. The North Node is where we're headed, so Eris is supporting us in getting up and out of the past/egoic sense of separation. We have Mars conjunct South Node, where Mars the planet of ego, self, will, action and impulsivity reminds us that where we have been (south node) is a space of separation, it is a precisely perfect and empowering alignment as we are supported on both sides to remember that we are powerful and connected to everything. Pluto (as I discuss in the podcast as the "higher octave" of Mars is empowering us to release what no longer serves and bravely move beyond our own personal fears and illusions about why we think we need to be separate and what it might mean to merge with the collective.
2- Uranus quincunx Mars. A quincunx is typically seen as a negative aspect in astrology.. signaling adjustments need to be made. I offer that these adjustments are within our own understandings of how our ego and personal will and power (Mars) can come in to alignment with our understandings of ourselves and the high technology we seek to change the world (Uranus). Again, the theme of harnessing the power of our own vibration continues!
3- Uranus square Venus. Like quincunx above, sparing energy is typically seen in a negative light, signalling a challenge. With uranus in Taurus, which is one of two signs ruled by Venus (the other being Libra), we have the perfect support to level up in our understandings of how harnessing the power of our vibration is intimately interconnected with all of life on earth (Taurus). This square is the third and final exact square in this sequence, signalling the opportunity for realization and closure if we so choose. While challenges can obviously feel challenging, that are also innately provide us with opportunities for coming more into alignment with our soul's purpose as well as our relationship with everyone and everything.
The themes of interconnectedness and harness the power of our vibration continue to be woven into the alignments of the planets! This theme is hopefully one we can embrace on a deep level and utilize to create the world we want to see. An important part of owning the power of our vibration (a message coming from Uranus and Pluto as well as Arcturus) is simultaneously stepping into our own power as conscious creators (on an individual level) as well as our role in healing the collective and creating a bright future.
To that end I am offering an in-depth course to support us through this time of the year (at least in the Northern Hemisphere) which is innately associated with transformation. Fall and eclipse season beckon us to connect with those who have gone before us, as well as the natural world around us. I have designed the course as I have learned from my shamanic teachers.. to be a step by step process in ancestral communication, communication with the natural world, and ultimately communication with higher dimensions of consciousness. You can find our more about it and sign up here: everything-is-energy.teachable.com/courses/ancestor-wisdom-circle
We embark Friday Sept 29!!
We have a powerful new moon on September 14th. I focus in the podcast on two celestial alignments: a grand earth trine, and a vertex conjunction. I want to use this space to offer some additional insights about these two aspects.
Let's begin with the grand earth trine. Generally speaking, a grand trine is an aspect pattern that occurs when three planets are situated at angles of 120 degrees - in other words trine - to each other and from what we know as an equilateral triangle. While a trine is considered a "positive" aspect where energetics of planets can flow harmoniously, a grand trine creates that sense of harmony and flow on a larger scale. In a grand trine, all three planets typically share the same element. Grand trines are fairly rare aspect patterns, and when they arise they are considered fortuitous and lucky.
The grand trine that appears during this new moon in Virgo has the Sun and Moon in the sign of Virgo (mutable feminine earth), Taurus in the sign of Taurus (fixed feminine earth), and Pluto in Capricorn (cardinal feminine earth). We can likely sense that this is a trine full of earthy feminine energy. It also has all three astrological qualities (cardinal, fixed and mutable) making it a multifaceted energetic to help us balance and embody the energy of the feminine and earth. Does that sound like a popular theme these days? It is!
This grand trine is truly a blessing for us during this new moon because of the vertex alignment as well as the opening lunar event for eclipse season. The vertex alignment I speak of is actually a tight conjunction where the Sun, Moon and Vertex are at the exact same degree in Virgo. The vertex speaks to our soul's purpose and wish being fulfilled and is often said to be activated at major turning points in our lives. Together with the grand earth trine, this means we are supported in establishing a healthy sense of connection to our planet, to each other, as we reach new ways of knowing how interconnected everyone and everything always is! The outcome is that the traditional notion of "collective consciousness" is getting an upgrade, in that it is now no longer something we merely talk about, it is something we ARE. These energetic alignments can have the effect of deepening our sense of security, groundedness, connectedness and productivity based on natural talents and creativity.
With that in mind I would like to invite you to join me on a soul activating and earth centered journey to connect with your ancestors and understand them as gatekeepers for connecting to all other forms of life as well as higher dimensions. The course is 6 weeks ong and kicks off September 29th. More information can be found here as well as in the image below.
We have the largest, most powerful super full moon of 2023 activating on August 30. I call this an "activation" because of the alignment of several other plants, in sync with this full moon. While luna is always in opposition to the sun during a full moon, we also have the moon conjunct retrograde Saturn and conjunct the trans-Naptunian object Gonggong.
Let's first take a look at retrograde Saturn. While Saturn stations and goes retrograde about once each year for approximately 4 months, this particular retrograde is potent both because of Luna's conjunction with Gonggong, as well as because there are 6 of 10 planets retrograde as well as at least 4 celestial bodies activating and being retrograde. This means we have a lot of retrograde energy coming through to us during this full moon! While full moon's are always times of illumination, the type of illumination here will be about realizations from the past, as we are invited to look at experiences, beliefs and aspects of our lives that could use some revision.
For most in the 3d world the notion of "revising timelines" or "reframing experiences" seems odd. As we are trained in our linear time and fixed space belief systems to think that what happened in the past stays stuck that way, as if written in stone. One of the things I love about teaching energy healing is supporting my students in the experience of timeline revision. Consider for a moment how several people could witness the same thing happening, a wedding, an argument, a speech.. and all of them likely have a different experience of that event and "see'' different things happening. This gives us the hint that all of life is malleable. Everything we see is seen through our own lens of consciousness, which is informed by our past experiences, beliefs and understanding of the nature of reality. Long winded way of inviting you to consider that during this retrograde season you really CAN revise and rewrite the past! Satrun is activating with Luna and Gonggong to support this.
We can really see the depth of this message when we consider Gonggong. Gonggong is considered a trans-Neptunian object, it is a dwarf planet, a member of the scattered disc beyond Neptune. I offer here, as I have before, that the outer planets beyond Jupiter and Saturn work with subtle energy. They are often never understood or misunderstood, precisely because most humans are so desensitized and overloaded with the noise of modern life that they have no idea what subtle energy is, let alone how it works. Many astrologers, myself included, see the outer planets are potentially more powerful than the inner planets we know so well and can often see working in our daily lives. I often say that "the outer planets always win" precisely because they work on the level of subtle energy. This means they work simultaneously here in the physical world as well as in higher dimensions. They are a sort of "dimension-bridger".. supporting us in raising our consciousness and remembering how to tune into and work with subtle energy. I am offering a free workshop on this topic, focusing on Pluto on 9/9, you can join my email list to receive the invite below, for now back to the Super full moon and Luna's conjunction with Gonggong.
Gonggong's symbolism is controversial in that throughout chinese history is primarily written about as a source of chaos and destruction, a mighty force to be feared by humanity. I discuss the myth in the podcast above, and offer another interpretation of Gonggong as a harmonizing force in the universe, much like Ma'at and Libra.. I offer reasons why we can and should consider Gonggong a source of support for us in realigning with and remembering our true nature as powerful creators. With the Sun in opposition to the Moon, Saturn as well as Gonggong we may well have realizations about things in the physical 3d world that seem to be true.. things about ourselves and our experiences ... as malleable/shiftable.. not as "set in stone" and up for revision. This is the magic of this unique alignment of planets, they are converging to offer a shift and lift in collective Karma. Satrun, being the planet of karma, Gongong being a dwarf planet of collective karma, aligning with the moon to support us remembering and revising our own inner knowledge (Gonggong is retrograde with Saturn :)
This activation is preparing us for the upcoming eclipse season, which kicks off in September. I will be offering a 6 week in depth online class to support us through eclipse season as well as Samhain/Day of the dead. The focus of the course is connecting with our ancestors, as I believe they are the doorway to connecting with many aspects of higher levels of consciousness. You can find out more about the course and sign up to join me on the journey here and in the image below!
We have a new moon in Leo on August 16th. This is a continuation of the Lion's Gate energetic as it is inviting us to look within and tae ownership of everything about the world we live in.
Leo, is a regal and noble sign, seeking the highest standards and the highest good for all. This particular new moon is marked with three powerful often misunderstood goddess energies: Lilith, Medusa and Eris. All three are showing up to conjoin the Moon, Sun, Neptune and North Node.
Individually any of these aspects is significant. This is the first time in my experience that all three are making an appearance at the same time! In the podcast I go through each of their myths and suggest that they are each individually and also collectively encouraging us to look deep within ourselves to remember our own immensely creative power. Not only do we create our lives but we collectively co-create the world that we live in. The ultimate goal and path they are leading us on is one of Self Liberation, freeing ourselves from the things we hold deep within that keep us small, heavy, and/or unrealized.
I've linked a few other podcasts I've done on these goddesses individually, in case you want to dive deeper into their story and energy.
Also, mark your calendars and join my email list to get invited to the next live gathering on September 9th at 11am Pacific time. The workshop is called Pluto Deep Dive: A Workshop to Explore the Subtle Energetics of Pluto Past, Present, and Future. Happy new moon and see you on the 9th!
We have two powerful astrological events back to back at the beginning of August, followed by two more powerful lunar events mid and end of August!
The first event, the full moon in Aquarius, takes place on August 1st. This is actually a Super Moon, the 2nd of 4 super full moons in a row!
Super moons are a phenomena that happen when the moon is extra close to earth, meaning she showers us with her light and energy in an extra potent dose! Full moons are always times of realization, this full moon is likely a time for a unique type of realization... not necessarily big or dramatic realizations (though they can be :) more likely subconscious and subtle energy realizations, as this is the energetic that Pluto is beginning to bring through as it heads into aquarius. (Remember that this will take place fully in 2025, so we don't need to be in a rush about anything! Subtle energy is very powerful, I offer more powerful than the energy we're used to experiencing.)
With that in mind I will be offering two free workshops/gatherings to support us in understanding and aligning with what pluto has to share. The first is in sync with the Lions Gate on 8|8, this workshop will focus on Sirius and and Lion's gate Activations, as well as tiem for Q & A. The second workshop is a Pluto Deep Dive, on 9|9 where we'll learn more about Pluto's energetic communication, important transits, as well as explore the "Plutinos" which carry even MORE subtle energy than Pluto! To join these gatherings live please make sure you're on my email list, as that is how I share gathering information. You can also check out recordings on my you tube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/@everythingisenergy
Now let's get to the second powerful event at the start of August, the Lion's Gate Portal. It's the same day every year, August 8th. 8|8 is a numerological portal in itself, numerology has been used and revered in Hebrew mysticism, Mesopotamian culture, Greek philosophy, the Vedic systems of India, as well as Christianity. The number 8, when turned on its side is an infinity loop.. symbolizing the endless flow of cosmic energy, as well as the reflection of one energy mirroring the other exactly. Infinity holds is the essence of the law of attraction, which states that everything in our world is precisely a reflection of our vibration. Furthermore, 8 in numerology, is considered a powerhouse number, as it acts as a bridge between the material and spiritual realms, signified by the interlocking circles of "8," or the infinity symbol
It is also the time when the Moon, Earth, Sun and Sirius align, giving us here on Earth the possibility for powerful downloads! Sirius has long been known as the Central Sun to our Sun. I will cover more of that in the 8|8 Lions' Gate gathering :) For now, consider that it acts like a cosmic energetic filter, receiving information from the Galactic Center and sending it to our Sun, in a manner or vibration or sequence that is specifically for our Sun to send to us here on earth. When these two align, there's the possibility for third eye opening, kundalini rising, subtle energetic realizations that can have profound effects! This alignment was so significant the Egyptians worked it out in their building of the Great Pyramid. I hope that you can join me on August 8 for the live gathering!
Welcome to the New Moon in Cancer. I offer it as a seeding time to support us in preparing for the energetics of 2025. We have several powerful astrological configurations with this new moon, we also have a potent nodal axis shift.
I discuss the astrology of the new moon in the podcast (above) and youtube video (below). I wanted to take time in this post to share a bit more about the nodes and how they impact us.
Nodes aren’t objects in space, they are figurative/hypothetical points of energy. They show us where we’ve come from and where we’re headed. Nodes also act as the hosts of ongoing eclipses, making the Aries and Libra axis the primary energetic for the next 18 months.
Nodes are figurative but really powerful! They are a product (or happenstance?) of the convergence of the eliptic and the Moon's orbit. The eliptic tracks the sun’s annual revolution through our field of view, as astrology looks at all the celestial bodies according to how they affect earth energetics. Meanwhile, the moon moves through a very 3D orbital cycle around the earth, which forms angles to the ecliptic. When these two fields cross, the convergence points are called nodes, with one marking the south and another at the north.
The nodes move retrograde/backwards through the signs, which is actually clockwise movement as most things in astrology move counter clockwise. Since the entire nodal cycle takes approximately 18.5 years, they spend about a year and a half in directly opposing signs. In July 2023, the north node moves into Aries, with the south entering Libra, where they’ll remain until January 2025, followed by Pisces and Virgo.
Though Luna and the Sun come together in conjunction every lunar cycle at the new moon, and are in opposition during every full moon, they only hit the nodes, in tandem, approximately every six months. This is the phenomenon that creates our eclipse seasons, with solar eclipses occurring at a new moon, when the moon steps in front of the sun and obscures its light from our view. Lunar eclipses occur in sync with a full moon, as the earth blocks out the moon’s reflective light. Eclipses are download portals in the dance of the nodes, with the sun and moon acting as the main figures, bringing the themes of the opposing signs to the forefront.
Below you can find my youtube video giving a quick snapshot of all the energetics of this event.
We have a super full moon with Luna in the sign of Capricorn and the Sun in Cancer. I discuss in the podcast astrological background, but wanted to spend some more time in this blog post explaining the communication between our Sun and Sirius and why having Mercury, the planet of communication, together with the Sun conjunct Sirius in Cancer is a wonderful activation for higher dimensional downloads and upgrades.
Sirius has been valued by many ancient cultures including the Dogon tribe and the Egyptians. The Dogon knew of Sirius before modern man invented a telescope strong enough to discover it. They understood that Sirius informed our Sun as a Central Sun. They also understood that Sirius was a part of a consecutive set of Suns that eventually ended/began at the Galactic Center of the universe. I offer for this full moon that Sirius is conjunct the Sun to support us in receiving and being able to understand and integrate the higher dimensional energetic downloads that are coming through.
Full moons are always times of manifestation, activation and realization. This super full moon is unique in that it is not only very close to the Earth, as in the gravitational pull and energetic charge of the Moon is more intense, but it is also it also has several astrological signposts pointing us towards future preparations.
These might be summed up as follows:
1) Pluto retrogrades back into Capricorn before it moves once again into Aquarius.
2) The moon and Pluto are activating the Saturn Pluto conjunction that kicked off the world shift of the pandemic in 2020.
3) Pluto squaring the North Node as we are preparing for a significant Nodal Axis shift with the next new moon on July 18th. The Nodal Axes inform our energetic downloads during eclipse seasons and they last for 18 months. We are coming out of Scorpio/Taurus axis and into Aries/ Libra axis. This is going to be a massive activation for self-empowerment and return to right relations. I will discuss this at length in the next podcast!
4) Saturn is very active during this full moon. It is sextile Luna herself and trine a stellium of planets in Leo, which include the Sun, Sirius, and Mercury.
I hope that you enjoy this podcast! I've also included a link below to my most recent solstice live gathering, the recording can be found on my YouTube channel.
A quick post about the energetics of this lunation. I am sharing an image of the astrology chart for the new moon below, where you can see, as I mention in the podcast, that Juno, the Sun and Moon are in a tight conjunction in the sign of Gemini. You can also see they are all squaring Neptune in Pisces.
There are several layers of energetics that I discuss in the podcast & Neptune is woven in there twice. So it's worth noting the squaring energy. Square with Neptune can simply mean challenges come up in order to be able to see more clearly. Given that the Sun, Moon and Juno are all square Neptune, in its home sign of Pisces means that the realizations might "feel" very intense.
Neptune, the planet that supports us in rising above levels of delusion and beholding to others ways of knowing and being, truly wants to support us in coming into our OWN words and ways, into our OWN thoughts and realizations. Neptune says that even though we are more interconnected now than ever, it is important not to simply follow along the latest trend. We are reminded to truly sit within ourselves and wait for the signs that things are miraculously unfolding: to look for the synchronicities, to trust our intuition, to not, "be in a rush" about having the realizations too soon.
This is a very long introduction into the actual content of the podcast, which is focused on the embodiment and rebalancing of the divine feminine. Juno is the Queen of the Roman gods and the wife of Jupiter, the King of the gods; her Greek equivalent is Hera, as Queen of the gods, wife of Zeus. I discuss at length in the podcast the potential misogyny and misinformation included in their myths, and offer a meditation to begin to unravel those cords and return to harmonizing and rebalancing the divine feminine with the divine masculine.
This is the inspiration for the quote shared above "What does Divine Feminine ask of me at this time?" This quote came through as Mars and Venus are close to conjunct in the sign of Leo... But they are not together. What is tightly conjunct is Black Moon Lilith with Mars. Mars being the energy of divine masculine, and Venus, divine feminine. Black Moon Lilith, typically seen as discord via rebellious feminine energy, is inviting Mars (divine masculine) to be informed about the divine feminine's needs. Specifically, what she needs in order to be able to return to harmony, balance and symbiosis. This is not a statement of "needs" nor is it an invitation to placate and buy flowers, this is an energetic transmission. I hope that you enjoy!

We have a synchronistic, powerful, and fortuitous alignment with the Sagittarius full moon on June 3/4 2023.
Full moons always happen when the moon and sun are in opposition. It just so happens that this full moon is one that is conjunct the only two stars that we currently know of as in opposition in the sky: Antares and Aldebarean. This is a very rare conjunction/opposition of lady luna conjunct Antares and our sun conjunct Aldebaran. In the podcast above I discuss the supporting astrological aspects. For the purposes of this blog post I will dive more deeply into the energetics of Antares and Aldebaran.
Antares - Antares is the 15th brightest star in our sky, and probably the second largest one ~ next only to Betelgeuse in Orion. If set in our solar system, it would engulf all of the inner planets and extend well into the asteroid belt! This puts it at well over 500 times the size of the sun. Interestingly it lies some 520 light years from the earth, the same distance away as the star Betelgeuse (though in different directions). Because of its enormous size and relative proximity, Antares is one of the few stars in which the size of its disk can actually been measured. It is its size which gives it its brightness, not its temperature, for it is much cooler than the sun. The larger the size of a star, the greater the area from which it radiates its light.
Aldebaran - Aldebaran, the brightest star in the constellation Taurus the Bull, rises in the fall at sunset, and is the thirteenth brightest star in the sky. Its name comes from the Arabic Al Dabaran, the Follower, because Aldebaran appears to follow the Pleiades through the night sky.
As the Eye of the Bull, Aldebaran is called the Eye of Revelation. It is referred to by astronomers and cosmologists as the Eastern Royal Star, one of the four Royal Stars considered the sentinels watching over other stars. It is also known as the Buddha’s star, the Star of Illumination, and God’s Eye. This magnificent star has been used for centuries in navigation, and is known by many civilizations to be connected with the spirits of rain and the fertility of the earth. Approximately 5,000 years ago, the rising of Aldebaran marked the vernal equinox and marked the beginning of the Babylonian new year.
I mention in the podcast that this particular alignment of these four celestial bodies in their signs (Moon/Antares in Sagittarius, Sun/Aldebaran in Gemini) is a very rare (potentially once in a lifetime) activation. I offer here that the activation is more like a "communication." Rather than being a download from something separate that we don't understand, this is a remembering of something that we have always been a part of. It will likely feel very much like a homecoming.
I came to understand the nature of other-worldly "communication" when I dove into the work of James Ross Godbe in 2018. Godbe is a bright mind and humble soul living in the high desert of eastern California. He is the author of the book Stillpoint: The Geometry of Consciousness. This writing and his other work have been influential in my podcast as well as in my other offerings. He offers a mathematically based foundation for understanding things like planetary relationships and astrology. The video below is his presentation/collaboration on the precession of the equinoxes:
The next video is what I've shared in past equinox gatherings about sacred alignments, also what we are gravitating toward in the current Egyptian Alchemy Course to support a deeper understanding of the connection between the sacred geometry of the Pyramids and the Alchemist's understanding of sacred geometry.
