Waking up the morning after the election was traumatic for many. It was for us. My husband turned over and said, “the last time I felt this way it was 9/11.” A component of trauma is shock and surprise, along with feelings of powerlessness. [Read more…]

Taurus Full Moon: Spellbreaking


web-600x600-png

The world is a spell, an enchantment, an amazement, an arabesque of such stunning rhythm and a plot so intriguing that we are drawn by its web into a state of involvement where we forget that it is a game. – Alan Watts

I’ll be honest, I was hoping the content of this essay would be different, that the spellbreaking I’m writing about, today, would be the broken enchantment of Donald Trump. [Read more…]

Scorpio New Moon: Instant Transformation

Dali_Landscape_with_ButterfliesI’ve often believed in the power of instant karma. I’ve seen it in action, too. The idea that what goes around can (relatively) instantly come around, makes sense to me. I trust that life is ultimately fair, while knowing I may not fully understand what that means yet. But instant transformation is a harder sell.  Excepting a temporary, superficial makeover, the work of true, deep change is a slow process. So I have been suspicious of shortcuts. I want the real.

It’s autumn in the Northern Hemisphere. Just as the leaves of the trees dry up and fall to the ground, autumn tends to bring drier skin, cooler weather and more exposure to wind.

How do we remain open and vulnerable to life, without getting shut down by negativity or burying our head? [Read more…]

I once knew someone who had some very real obstacles in life. She just couldn’t get a leg up. It did seem like life was hell bent on throwing her curveballs. Nothing she tried, and she tried a lot, was working. This had gone on for years. [Read more…]

Pluto & Emotional Blackmail

STONE AGE RELATIONSHIP

Venus is in Scorpio from 9/23/16-10/17/16. Pluto in Capricorn moves direct on September 26, 2016. 

During Pluto and Scorpio times, we’re more susceptible to noticing the subtext – what’s below the surface- of our everyday interactions, conversation and encounters with others, probably because it’s more imperative that we do so at this time. [Read more…]

Pisces Full Moon Eclipse: Your Own Private Idaho

The restless chair on the empty field at sunset

I used to feel astrologically cheated out of that zany and enlightened experience known as Pisces. I’ve thought about how fun it would be to bliss out during kirtan chanting, trip the light fantastic astral traveling, communicate with Spirit beings… but my reality has been far more mundane.
