Scorpio Full Moon: Thrill of Desire

May is a month of extended travel for my husband, which means I will be alone for most of the month. I used to look forward to this time away. When the kids were here and life ran at 100 mph all the time I couldn’t wait for the down time to cocoon, rest and restore. But today it filled me with an agoraphobia of sorts, a fear of wide open spaces. [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.

Pluto & Emotional Blackmail

Scorpio New Moon: Shaman’s Moon

African style woman

Pluto in Capricorn squaring my Aries Moon has brought a deep plunge into unconscious material I’ve been carrying around for years. It’s been gritty and tough and it has pushed me to acquire new healing tools. For the past 18 months or so, similar to a shaman, I have been regularly dipping into what we in the EFT (emotional freedom technique) universe call “The Matrix”, emotionally releasing highly charged trauma episodes and re-imprinting a new reality for my younger self by giving her the resources, support, truth and wisdom she lacked. Imagine re-writing the script of your worst nightmare, how joyous and liberating it would feel to finally get what you most needed. [Read more…]

Scorpio Full Moon: Butterflies

Butterflies

The butterflies in your stomach before you go on stage. That feeling of anticipation right before you move cross-country, away from all you’ve known. The creative mania of those last days before you’re married. The day of your college SAT exam, nerves wracked and palms sweaty. The feeling in the pit of your gut as you wait for news that will ultimately change your life. [Read more…]
