June 24, 2021 Full Moon in Capricorn

My June 2021 Forecast notes:

June 24 Full Moon in Capricorn at 2:40 p.m. Eastern. This Strawberry Moon hearkens back to the December 26, 2019 Solar Eclipse. Does something that occurred during that holiday season make more sense now? Explore ways in which you try to rationalize feelings. What’s really going on here? How can you balance self-sufficiency with the need to connect and share with others? Another round of Saturn sextile Chiron offers a chance to learn and heal through your Full Moon insights.

(2:40 p.m. Eastern is the correct time for the Full Moon. Sorry, my original June Forecast had a typo! Also, depending on your global location, the 2019 eclipse for you might have occurred on Christmas Day.)

I honed in on the echo of the December 25-26, 2019 Solar Eclipse, but I did not realize that the Sun point of this June 24, 2021 Full Moon exactly conjuncts the Trans Neptunian Object Echeclus. I mentioned Echeclus in my Summer Solstice post, because Echeclus closely trined Jupiter at the time Jupiter stationed retrograde. This created an “Echeclus flavor” to that potent day.

Echeclus deals with echoes throughout time — ways in which the past reverberates in the present and how the future can send signals back to the present. We can think of Echeclus as “synchronicity personified.” With Echeclus at 3°23′ Cancer so tightly conjuncting the Sun at 3°27′ Cancer at the time of the Full Moon, we can expect extra potent timeline bleedthroughs. Pay special attention to dreams, visions and déjà vu.

Mark Twain said, “History does not repeat itself, but it often rhymes.” People or events might cycle back at new levels, shedding light on the original encounter, as well as flashing forward to “future memories.” I posted about the December 26, 2019 Solar Eclipse here, because of its extra powerful conjunction to Jupiter, trine Uranus in Taurus. Things set in motion on that day might click further into place now, because the Full Moon on June 24, 2021 activates the same point of the Sun, Moon and Jupiter back then.

Cupido is also at 3° Capricorn at the time of this Capricorn Full Moon. Cupido doesn’t always mean matchmaking, but it adds to an already potent combo of energies. To get into the mood, you might enjoy movies like “Moonstruck,” “Serendipity,” “Unleashed,” and “Still Breathing.”

Pluto in Capricorn opposite Venus in Cancer at the time of this Full Moon intensifies the emotions. This time encourages vulnerability, as love can heal the deepest, hidden wounds. Beware of any obsessive tendencies, especially in the area of relationships. In addition to secrets and intimacy, Venus opposite Pluto also deals with power struggles. Aim for power to, rather than power over. Empowerment instead of enchantment.

This Venus-Pluto theme gets echoed by Black Moon Lilith, who conjuncts the North Node at the time of the Full Moon. Lilith is a highly reactive energy, often connected with trauma, abuse and sovereignty. Balanced Lilith energy feels like a fairy godmother, a tantric lover, or Women Who Run with the Wolves. Imbalanced or repressed Lilith can trigger an autoimmune reaction, hysteria or “the blame game.” Spending time in nature eases Lilith reactivity. It can also tune you into your most natural self. Lilith keeps getting activated by recent key transits, so her meeting with the North Node at the time of the Full Moon comes as no accident. Awareness of inner and outer dynamics related to tyranny and sovereignty can help us to experience more of Lilith’s positive qualities in relation to collective destiny.

In addition to all the above intensity, Asteroid Requiem conjuncts the Sun-Echeclus point of this Full Moon. According to Alex’s Astrology:

Requiem was named for the Funeral Mass for the dead by its discoverer, whose mother died the day it was found.

Astrologically, Requiem is a marker of death, change or transformation. It can also indicate acknowledgement of grief, honors paid to the dead, remembrance of those departed, and monuments. There can be sense of cessation, or rest from labors, and acceptance of change or loss, coming to terms with loss.

Something or someone will end on or around the time of this Full Moon. Death can be metaphorical, but these energies suggest that whatever it is will be deeply felt. They also suggest a rightness and perfect synchronization of events. A need to go deep. An order to stop manipulating or being manipulated. A primal call to honor sovereignty of body, mind and soul.

Also take a look back to Summer Solstice 2016. I could go full astro nerd, but my explanation would make your head spin! I just want to shine light on potential patterns and connections. Try not to overthink things. Full Moons highlight emotions, and your emotions are raw energy. If you’ve felt synchronicity running through your life but don’t recognize it on the exact Full Moon date, don’t worry about it!

General transits affect people in different ways, depending on what they trigger in your natal chart. Approach this one with curiosity, and see what unfolds.

Time reverberates in non-linear ways. Sometimes things only become clear (or significant) in hindsight. Your job is to pay attention and live as well as you can in each moment. The Centaur Pholus also conjuncts this Full Moon at 4° Capricorn. Pholus is the small thing, BIG EFFECT trigger. Pholus and Jupiter also conjuncted the 2019 Solar Eclipse, trining Uranus. That combo with volatile Uranus increased the impact of very small things linking to even BIGGER EFFECTS.

Again, whatever happens on or around June 24 might seem minor — like a butterfly flapping its wings in New York, yet somehow causing the storm that clears into a rainbow somewhere else. As events unfold, we’ll recognize how well orchestrated the cosmos is. For now, it’s enough to know that some things will prove much more important than they first appear.

Pay attention!

Happy Father’s Day and Happy Solstice!

To all the men out there playing father roles –whether by birth, marriage/partnership, mentoring, or adoption — Happy Father’s Day! Thank you for modeling the sacred masculine for our next generation. We need your strength and love in this world. Thank you for having the courage to keep showing up.

To everyone, a very Happy Solstice!

I shared in my June 2021 Forecast:

June 20 Summer Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere (Winter Solstice in the Southern Hemisphere). The Sun moves into Cancer at 11:32 p.m. Eastern time. This is also the day that Jupiter stations retrograde in Pisces. This date feels like taking the deepest breath all year. Pause before you exhale. We’re almost halfway through 2021. Whether you’ve liked it or not, make a gratitude list for the year thus far. Gratitude invites more blessings. “Not yet” doesn’t always mean “no.”

With Jupiter, one of the co-rulers of Pisces, stationing retrograde, we might feel the taste of hope deferred or a wavering of faith. Use this time to go inward, recognizing that faith builds through a process of relationship. Things ebb and flow, but the connection remains. The quiet moments speak volumes when we learn to listen.

This is a good time from Dreamwork, meditation, creativity, and self-discovery. “That which you seek is also seeking you” … but sometimes you already are that which you seek. Jupiter retrograde gives you a wonderful opportunity to pay attention to details. This particular Jupiter Rx stations at 2°11′ Pisces. Jupiter trines the Trans Neptunian Object Echeclus at 2°56′ Cancer and the Sun as it moves from 29° Gemini to 0° Cancer. In other words, Echeclus punctuates this Solstice.

On Amable’s blog, Transneptunian Astrology, there is this interesting observation about Echeclus: “When Echeclus is activated, there are time connections between past, present and future. Usually something of the past has imposing influence in the present, and something of the present can have an imposing influence in the future, and vice versa, like in the movies “The Kid” (2000), “Family Man” (2000), “Pay it Forward” (2000), “Frequency” (2000), “The Lake House” (2006, remake of “Il Mare” South Corean film of 2000), “Deja vu” (2006), “Tomb Raider: Legend” (PS2, 2006), “Star Trek” (1979) and “Tess” (1979).


“Learning to switch time perspectives allows us to shift our attention easily between the past, present and future, and consciously adapt our mindset to any given situation.” (Amable’s blog is no longer active. The above quote comes from Zane Stein’s longer write up, which you can find here.)

To me, this trine on an extra potent Solstice and Jupiter station day urges us to explore non-linear time. Look for echoes running in past, present and future. Time is MUCH bendier than most people realize, and Wheel of the Year days emphasize the portal aspects and fractal nature of time. Moments between now and mid-October will make this even more apparent.

The Next Phase and a Collective Dream

From a couple emails I sent this morning:

We have entered the next phase. Our birch tree confirms it. The top of it fell over in last night’s storm. The little wren keeps hopping around on the fallen branches, trying to make sense of it all. I have had several external markers this morning indicate a huge shift into the next phase.

I decided to share most of yesterday morning’s dream here, because — while personal — it also seemed collective, even at the time I had it.

6/17/2021
“The Cliff and Bag of Bread Epic”

This was a long, four-part dream. I recall almost nothing from the first three parts, but the last part is clear.

I was in some kind of resort, and Stuart (from Artists and Aliens) was the bartender. He was very busy, just working efficiently, but nonstop. At some point he handed me a large, square bag of bread and asked me to donate it to the delivery truck for recycling. It seemed like if the bar didn’t go through enough bread, then they could donate it to the delivery place and possibly get some sort of credit.

I don’t know the arrangement. Stuart just tasked me with donating the bread. I looked out the window and saw the truck below, turning onto a side street.

I ran fast down the hill with the bread but suddenly found I had overshot a cliff. By a lot. I looked down and realized I was nowhere near the side street and about four stories higher, looking for somewhere soft to land, but there was nothing but asphalt far below.

The cliff had rock face you could maybe climb, but I wasn’t on ropes. Everything was also a little wet and mossy, like it had recently rained. The cliff, even if I could reach it, would be slick. Even if I managed to somehow swing myself to the cliff, I would probably smash my head open. I looked down again and calculated that a normal person would die, but realized I would not.

I knew that fall would hurt. Bad. It would take years to recover, very painful years. No options seemed good, yet here I was kind of floating in suspended animation, four stories above the asphalt, holding a 3×3’ bag of bread.

The delivery truck was long gone, and I continued to scan for somewhere soft to land. I could not believe this would happen to me, that I trusted Stuart about delivering the bag of bread, and it led me to this impossible situation.

After awhile, I realized I should have hit the ground by now. I became curious how I had not fallen anymore. I just floated by the cliff in suspended animation. I kept scanning and scanning for somewhere to land, but there was nowhere. I realized I was powerless to control the situation at all.

After a very long while, I realized I was slowly moving backwards. When I turned around, I saw that the street so far below had raised in a gradual hill as I was moved backwards. I saw a fence with very pointy pickets and thought, “Oh, no, that is NOT a soft place to land. I had this miraculous recovery only to land on very sharp points?! I don’t believe it.”

Whatever force moved me did set me down on top of the fence, but so gently it didn’t hurt. There was a boxwood hedge almost as high as the fence, right next to it, and I managed to climb down quite easily. I still had the bag of bread.

I walked for what seemed like years — a very long time anyway — back to the low spot in the road and figured out how to get back to the resort at the top of the cliff. I think I walked on a road, not climbed the cliff. I only recall my arrival. I briefly debated finding the delivery truck since I had not completed my assignment, then realized I couldn’t find the delivery truck even if one still existed.

Stuart seemed slower now and maybe more of higher management, not the bartender. Tania and Courtney Geyer were there. Courtney asked if I wanted her to complete a painting we talked about a long time ago. I realized I was ready now and said, “Yes, that would be perfect.”

There was an earlier part of running a t-shirt through a color photocopier, along with a check, like a bank check. All the sides of everything managed to print at once, and this t-shirt was colorful in its designs. That’s from one of the earlier parts I don’t recall, but it had something to do with the recent event of my running off the cliff and then floating to safety, then journeying back.

I was a new person when I returned from the journey. Not everyone understood that, but it was true. This dream felt epic in scope and also like it tracked with COVID lockdown and disruption of normal life — like we are getting towards the end — not there yet but pretty close. Nothing will be the same [and some people will be angry. That’s their issue; nothing can be done about it.]

Bible flip calendar today: “We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they are good for us — they help us learn to be patient. And patience develops strength of character in us and helps us trust God more each time we use it until finally our hope and faith are strong and steady.” ~ Romans 5:3-4

END of dream journal.

I’m just posting the photo and dream here in case either speaks to anyone on a personal or collective level. I omitted some of the more personal parts of the dream, as well as my interpretation. Just sharing because when I awoke yesterday, I thought, “This is also a collective dream.” As so often happens with me, parts of the dream then appeared in waking life later that day.

It feels like lots of tiny gears all moving together like clockwork. This, in turn, reminds me of two dreams I posted on 2/06/2020, before COVID lockdowns began:

Synchronously, before listening to this, two dreams this morning featured “Time” as a topic, including a wall of dozens of circular clocks, all synchronized, all being kept warm by a “hot plate wall” behind them. The message was one I keep getting, “high vibe and filled with life force energy,” a theme that keeps showing up in dreams about death, mud or dusty wreaths filled with seeds. This particular dream implied that we could “eat Time” and that this time banquet was being prepared and kept warm by amazing cosmic time chefs who knew exactly when and how to serve the right moments as a feast.

In the prior dream, I was in a clothing store, second story, somewhere in Idaho. The female clerk told me that in order to find what I wanted, I needed to cross the street. I went downstairs and began to cross the street, which turned into an intimidatingly wide street.

I crossed at a crosswalk, but the light went through several cycles as I made my way across the street. I was wearing high heeled, intricately carved wooden shoes, which I realized I could not continue to walk in. I took them off, and my bare feet couldn’t continue walking on this road, either. I was already in the middle of the road with cars on both sides. I dropped to my knees, kneeling, and “walking” on my knees across the street.

I worried that no one could see me so low to the ground, that I would get run over. Then I realized that none of the drivers of the cars seemed to notice the lights had changed. Time had either slowed down or stopped for them while I made my way — safely — across the street. When I arrived at the other store, traffic resumed. The store had exactly what I wanted, even though I didn’t know I was looking for it. I left wearing the new clothes.

Wishing everyone peace and love as we undergo another collective shift.

Plant Nannies and Today’s Garden

Some quick photos from this morning’s garden show the strategic use of “plant nannies.” I wrote about plant nannies in a 2018 post called “Edible Landscaping Secrets,” and I still recommend them for the Garden Tower Project and any plants that need more water than their neighbors. You can use mineral water bottles or wine bottles — anything with a long enough neck to fit in the terra cotta spike that digs into the soil. The terra cotta slowly releases water if the nearby soil dries out. If the soil’s moist, the water stays in the bottle until needed.

I scatter the plant nannies around the Garden Tower. Otherwise, I find the soil dries out by late afternoon’s scorching temps. With the nannies, I can go longer between waterings, and my plants feel less stressed and therefore healthier. These photos also show the (unzipped) mesh cage and rabbit fencing around the base. Yes, that’s volunteer lettuce in the patio cracks!

I have heavily harvested this Garden Tower for months, and it shows plants of varying degrees of growth. I recently removed the now bolted spinach and replaced that with carrots, rainbow chard and zinnias. Those are the holes with less growth.

We’ve had weather in the 80’s and 90’s for weeks, which would normally make all this lettuce bolt. I’ve found I can harvest the heads “too much” if I know it will be close to 90. That robs the plants of enough energy to shift from leaves to flowers and seeds. When it cools a bit, I let the leaves grow again. I’ve lost track of how many giant salads David and I have made from the Garden Tower. So fresh — and critter free! The mesh cage also keeps cabbage moths off my kale and collards. 🙂

Some other shots from today… It’s officially “Orange Season” here — David’s favorite color!

Wishing you a beautiful day!

June 2021 Specials

We’re already halfway through June! FYI, July will offer different specials. I only tend to offer this Reiki Master Teacher Special discount once per year, if that. I offer the training year round, but the special will probably not show up again until 2022 or later.

Laura Bruno's Blog

JUNE 2021 SPECIALS

Intuitive Preparedness Check-In

I wanted to offer a different special, but this one keeps inserting and announcing itself as a June 2021 Special. OK, then! This month does offer some wild energies to navigate.

With all the political, social and personal upheaval, people keep asking me how to maintain a positive, proactive vibration and how to thrive while also shoring up any weak spots. This special responds to many comments, questions and private emails requesting my take on the question “What can I do right now?” — for specific individuals, rather than general guidelines and suggestions.

This 40-minute session gives you access to my own intuitive scan of what areas of focus will provide you the greatest payback and sense of abundance, peace and security, with the least amount of resistance. Those looking to make larger lifestyle shifts can ask me to scan various lifestyle, location…

Eclipse Beauties

After the intense weirdness of the May 26 Lunar Eclipse, I wondered if this one would feel odd, too. I awoke about fifteen minutes before the 6:53 a.m. Annular Solar Eclipse, but we had overcast skies and light fog at that time. No worries, I didn’t want to see it anyway. I just wanted to be conscious in case any followup messages came through.

I did receive two confirming dreams, but without this eclipse triggering my natal Neptune-Mercury opposition, I’ve had far less dream bleedthrough into waking life.

This eclipse and Mercury Retrograde closely conjunct my natal Saturn. With Neptune squaring Mercury Retrograde and the eclipse itself, any revelations today could seem unclear or foggy. In my case, I feel clear, but only because today’s dreams repeated messages I’ve received for over two years. Mercury Rx offers a wonderful time to re- anything. Repeat, review, re-evaluate, resign, release … .

These lilies just bloomed today. They seem so sunshine filled that I thought I’d share them and a few other snapshots from this morning’s garden:

Wishing you a smiling heart and a Happy Eclipse!

2021 Eclipse Redux and Preview

In anticipation of the June 10, 2021 Solar Eclipse, I feel led to share some odd collective and personal happenings around the May 26th Total Lunar Eclipse. My May and June 2021 Forecasts predicted:

May 26 Full Moon Total Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius 7:14 a.m. Eastern. This Full Moon Lunar Eclipse reveals tensions between repressed feelings and group solidarity. Pay attention to light shining on old patterns, condescension, and/or rigid ideals. Do these attitudes still fit? Accept invitations to upgrade.

June 10 New Moon (Annular Solar Eclipse) in Gemini. This eclipse peaks at 6:53 a.m. Eastern time, but eclipse energies last for months. Mercury retrograde conjuncts the Sun on this day, too — helping to process, review and assimilate whatever information came to light around the May 26 Lunar Eclipse.

Since eclipses link into overarching patterns, the prior eclipse provides a kind of preview and extra focus for the one(s) that follow. We often see three eclipses per season, but this year offers only two per season.

My May 26 Full Moon Lunar Eclipse write-up delved deeper into the karmic flavor, emphasized by conjunctions with both the transiting South Node and Asteroid Nemesis. I quoted Alex Miller:

Nemesis was the goddess of due enactment, a karmic equalizer who ensured that no one had too much good fortune, but paid appropriately for their misdeeds. Known as the restorer of cosmic order, Nemesis was particularly focused on punishing acts of hubris, which is defiant pride or arrogance in one’s place, gifts or fortune. Eventually her concept was refined to include a quality of vengefulness or retribution which is lacking in the original, which was more about rectifying imbalance. In modern usage, the term “nemesis” has come to represent any opponent, competitor, or adversary, anyone who stands in the way of our goal, or enacts revenge for wrongs committed.

Astrologically, Nemesis represents the vagaries of Fate, self-undoing, reversal of fortune, and any person or thing which holds us back, prevents our will, denies goals, or punishes our actions. Additionally, there can be issues with assigning blame, scapegoating, or finding fault.

I expected some kind of big, public revelation around the time of the eclipse, and sure enough, FOIA requests presented thousands of emails from Dr. Fauci. “Gain of function,” “bioweapons research labs” and deeper scrutiny of Fauci’s possible role in the creation and spread of COVID-19 hit alternative and mainstream news in a much bigger way. We don’t yet have full clarity on this situation, but the eclipse alignments triggered a data dump resulting in a “reversal of fortune” from “Saint Fauci” to somewhere between “inept,” “Fraudci” and/or Dr. Evil, depending on how one reads the still heavily redacted emails.

This same time period also featured whistleblowers from Facebook revealing top down censorship of anything related to Wuhan lab or public debate about the COVID shots. Again, we don’t have the full story, but sizable revelations and shifts occurred at or around the time of the May 26 eclipse. Bill Gates’ ties to Jeffrey Epstein and Dr. Fauci also created a little mainstream and a lot of alternative news. I mention these because the transiting South Node brings collective karma into the spotlight. We live in a shared collective, so these larger brushstrokes influence the canvas of our lives.

How an eclipse affects individuals depends a lot on the individual natal chart. In my own case, the May 26 Full Moon conjuncted my natal Neptune, while the Sun conjunted my natal Mercury. This Neptune-Mercury opposition colors my chart and life all the time; however, key transits ignite the aspect and make it extra weird. Mercury rules communication and how we share and process information. Neptune rules the collective unconscious, the Dreamworld, and the (much) bigger picture. Mercury likes to categorize. Neptune blurs boundaries.

People who undergo a Neptune transit opposite natal Mercury often feel brain fog and wonder if they’re losing their mind. People who have this natal aspect get used to it, but tend to experience reality in illogical ways. Rational and intuitive sides pull against each other until they integrate. We feel more connected to inner planets like Mercury, whereas outer planets present as mysterious forces or “fate.” An outer planet with a slow orbit, Neptune floods and dissolves a “normal” Mercury.

In my personal and professional life, this Neptune-Mercury opposition plays out as vivid dreams, an ability to tap into and take short trips to other realms, and easy communication with beings “beyond the veil.” I’ve had a lifetime of head injuries, precognitive dreams, and paranormal events. My general life “climate” includes synchronicity storms that would make most people question their sanity.

The May 26 eclipse upped those storm categories.

I awoke about a half hour before the eclipse moment of 7:14 a.m. Eastern time. I’d been dreaming about Jedi Mind Tricks and padawans, a woman in a green evening gown, and how to manage very bendy reality. Here’s an excerpt from my May 26 dream journal entry — not the dream itself but me pondering how this dream energy continued into waking life:

I woke up to clanging in the kitchen, and David apologized if the floor is sticky. My leftover can of black beans had leapt out of the fridge and spread all over the kitchen. He ended up giving the floor a very deep scrub. I apologized but also did not understand how the beans could have just leapt out of the fridge like that. In my mind I noted that I had been meaning to clean the floor, so now it was done. OK. Also, in bed, I had considered that those beans really didn’t agree with me yesterday. I ate them at lunch and got VERY brain foggy afterwards. I considered throwing them out. When I awoke, they had just been literally thrown out of the fridge.

I opened the front curtains [this is all waking life from the beans onward] and a plant leapt off the painted table, landing behind the other plant stands and requiring a clean up. I had been meaning to re-pot that plant and also to clean behind the tables there. I said this to David just as I cleaned it up.

When I was finished, ANOTHER plant, which I had originally thought I might pot up with the first one, also leapt off the table and required more clean up. This was getting ridiculous.

I cleaned that up, then noticed I needed to turn the jade plant. Doing so required me moving a pot of fake plants I use just to fill in the one spot if needed. There’s damage to the plant stand table, which now shows without the fake plant there. All of a sudden I realized that’s where “they” want the two re-potted succulents to go.

I feel like faeries have invaded our house …

When I stood up from cleaning up the second upturned plant, I very gently — ever so gently– whacked my head on the edge of the painted cabinet. I did this at the exact moment of the eclipse, then forgot about it until I read texts from Faery Twin Tania Marie. These arrived the night before, but I only saw them in the morning. She shared how she had cracked her head — hard — the night before the eclipse, just hours after finding a sacrum bone from a bear. You can read her saga here.

Our natal Neptune’s are close to each other and we both had personal activations in our natal charts from the eclipse. I’ve alluded to ongoing inner processing and powerful dreams/synchronicities related to life and death energies. As part of this inner processing for the past two years, I’ve intended “only the gentlest, kindest, easiest, most beneficial, least traumatic, least karmic, most beautiful unfolding.” A Neptunian prayer if ever there was one!

This ongoing intention and my Neptune-Mercury activation colored how I experienced the eclipse. No one “spilled the beans”; actual beans spilled themselves. The flying leap/surrender of plants who’d outgrown their pots, life nudging along the washing of floors that needed washing anyway, and the ever so gentle tap on my head right at the eclipse — all affirmed that healing and growth can occur without excess trauma. The process might involve a little cleanup, but answered prayer can buffer at least some of the intensity.

Later that day, I went on a walk. As I crossed our street, a thought dropped into my mind: “Randy (our next door neighbor) is either getting ready to pass, or he already died this morning.” I saw no overt signs of that, but I felt the energy shift around his home. I returned, did a session for someone whose dear relative died the day before the eclipse, and when I got out of the session, I noticed David looking sad. I hugged him and asked what happened.

“I saw Pam on the way in from work. Randy died this morning.”

Our sweet neighbor had been very ill, off and on, for years. He used to trap and relocate groundhogs for me. I would often visit him on his front porch, or he’d pop by when I watered the front garden. A dream three mornings later made me realize that Randy not only died at the eclipse. He died exactly four years to the day after we first met him — on the day we purchased our home.

I share this here to honor Randy’s life, but also because Randy has sometimes appeared in dreams. I shared one of those dreams on November 14, 2020, sensing a collective component to that dream. It also linked into some ongoing “T-Square” dreams, and a synchronicity supernova. Randy’s death appears to be some kind of time marker connected to a long series of interrelated, seemingly precognitive dreams. Time will tell. I only mention this as dream validation of astrological validation of a lot of people’s intuitive sense that we’re in monumental times. Indeed, I highlighted the period between my May 22 birthday and the end of June as a period of astro fireworks.

The June 10 New Moon (Annular Solar Eclipse) occurs at 19°47′ Gemini, conjunct Mercury Retrograde at 20°41′ Gemini. Later that day, Mercury and the Sun will pass notes as they meet for a moment, then go their separate ways. Expect more revelations.

Dane Rudhyar’s Sabian Symbol for the (rounded up) 20° Gemini Solar Eclipse is:

PHASE 80 (GEMINI 20°): A MODERN CAFETERIA DISPLAYS AN ABUNDANCE OF FOOD, PRODUCTS OF VARIOUS REGIONS.

KEYNOTE: The assimilation of multifarious knowledge through the synthesizing power of the mind.

This … implies a certain kind of synthesis or at least a preparation which leads to a new level. The keynote here is indeed ASSIMILATION; the negative potentiality of the symbol is WASTE.  (You can find the full write-up here.)

This eclipse could trigger such a flood of revelations that important details get lost in a mudslide. Those resigned to inevitable disclosure might release an avalanche of data all at once, in hopes that people lack time, energy or patience to sift through the mess. If enough individuals examine and process these revelations, then we — as a collective — will find and assimilate whatever we most need.

The whole is greater than the sum of its parts — and this particular whole might even “show its math.”

Neptune in Pisces and Mercury in Gemini square each other during the June 10 eclipse, so any revelations will involve some friction between the intuitive and rational. Cognitive dissonance will clang. Collectively, I expect contrasts of confusion, delusion, dissolution, disappointment, grief, deception, addictions, euphoria, compassion and overwhelm (Neptune) vs. careful review, revision, logic, communication, clarity and rapid response (Mercury).

Whatever floods or floats past our awareness around this eclipse will help shake things loose on the June 14 Saturn Square Uranus event. This key transit following a Solar Eclipse amplifies the themes and messages of each event. As my June Forecast noted:

Squares create constructive friction. Though uncomfortable, our differences can reveal the whole as greater than the sum of its parts. This Saturn square Uranus energy runs throughout 2021. In which areas are you trying to control others? In which areas do you feel others trying to control you? Think “Live and Let Live.” How might this attitude support new levels of cooperation?

The collective will undergo significant shifts this summer. How these events personally impact you depends on your natal chart, as well as which level you choose to engage. You can experience energies in literal or symbolic ways — i.e. “spilling the beans” instead of whistle-blowing or confession.

Some people will read today’s post as political because it references current events. Others will recognize the maxims, “As Above, So Below,” and “As Within, So Without.” Everything we encounter symbolizes and connects with something else. Inner and outer space are vast and linked.

The Saturday following the eclipse — May 29 — I felt the weight of many visions, both personal and collective. Absurd yet confirming synchronicities continued to appear, and I couldn’t shake a profound sense of grief. Part of this was mine, yet it felt bigger than mine alone. I went outside to tend my garden. That usually lifts my spirits, but this time, the heaviness remained. Almost too much to bear.

I noticed a pot of yarrow in the backyard raised bed and made a mental note to fertilize it. Compared to all my other potted yarrow, this one looked puny and malnourished. I weeded the area around the pot as I watered the bed. Then I moved to other areas of the garden. The sadness and weight on my chest remained, as though the hose poured from a bottomless well of grief. This is VERY unlike me — especially in the garden.

Moments later, I heard a sing-song, almost imperceptible “Laurrrrrr—-a. Laurrrrrr—a.”

This quiet, melodic voice beckoned me to turn around. When I did, my eyes shot to a bright spot just behind the pot of yarrow. I said to myself, “What IS that?!”

The sing-song “Laurrrrr—a. Laurrrrr—a” called to me from that spot. I walked over to examine the area I had just viewed while pondering the yarrow and weeding nearby plants.

Out of nowhere, this iris appeared:

As strange as it sounds, the melodic calling of my name seemed to emanate from this flower — or perhaps from a faery disguised as a bug on one petal. I never planted this variety of iris. It’s smaller, more delicate and totally different colors than the large yellow irises we inherited with the yard.

I felt something touch the center of my chest, the area the grief weighed down. It felt like a faery placed the tip of her magic wand right on my heart chakra. The heaviness grew light, then delighted and almost giddy. Joy bubbled up inside my heart. I could still sense the grief, but this beautiful and magical encounter felt like the balm of Gilead.

I shared the photo and story with a few people, and the magic continued. Tania informed me that she has this type of iris in her garden. We know our gardens and offices connect via portals, but this felt extraordinary. Another person with whom I shared the photo and story told me it triggered major faery magic in her own garden. A rose bush that “never blooms” put forth two flowers. She displayed them in a vase and the next day, the entire sprawling rose bush FILLED with blooms. She sent photos, and they are glorious!

I knew I would share this story on my blog, because it illustrates — again — the loving support available when we open ourselves to other levels of experience. We will still sense energies, but things can soften and uplift. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: “Grace happens.”

Open your heart to loving-kindness. That tiny shift will change your world.

June 2021 Specials

JUNE 2021 SPECIALS

Intuitive Preparedness Check-In

I wanted to offer a different special, but this one keeps inserting and announcing itself as a June 2021 Special. OK, then! This month does offer some wild energies to navigate.

With all the political, social and personal upheaval, people keep asking me how to maintain a positive, proactive vibration and how to thrive while also shoring up any weak spots. This special responds to many comments, questions and private emails requesting my take on the question “What can I do right now?” — for specific individuals, rather than general guidelines and suggestions.

This 40-minute session gives you access to my own intuitive scan of what areas of focus will provide you the greatest payback and sense of abundance, peace and security, with the least amount of resistance. Those looking to make larger lifestyle shifts can ask me to scan various lifestyle, location and/or community options to see which ones fit best with your vibration and heart’s desires.

You can also use our time together to discuss energetic/magical protection and manifestation tools and techniques, along with troubleshooting your most pressing concerns in various areas of life, including finances, food security, faith/spirituality/soul nurturing, relationships and/or land, including “garden guidance.”

A simple $123 if prepaid on or before June 30, 2021. Please contact me to sign up, and remember to include your time zone.

$555 Reiki Level 3 Master Teacher Certification Special

Every once in a great while, I feel led to offer this special. This one also comes in response to client requests. I’m taking $95 off the normal rate for correspondence/phone/distance training and certification for Reiki Level 3 Master Teacher.

This special obviously does not apply to everyone, as you will need at least Reiki Level 2 Certification from me or another Reiki Master Teacher in order to qualify for the training. I also require a casual but effective application process so that I get a sense of readiness for this next level. 555 indicates divinely guided positive change, so it seems like an appropriate number for certification to teach “divinely directed healing energy,” another definition of Reiki besides “Universal Life Force Energy.”

People considering this special might find this Reiki Master Teacher FAQ post helpful in answering common questions related to discerning your own readiness and our compatibility as teacher and student. You do not need to know for sure you’d like to teach Reiki in order to take this training. You just need to feel ready to learn Reiki from the perspective of one who could teach and who has committed to living the Reiki Principles as much as possible in your own life.

For over 18 years, many students who already received their Reiki Level 3 training from another Reiki Master Teacher have completed their second Reiki Level 3 Master Teacher Certification with me in order to increase their confidence and knowledge before going on to teach their own students. Because many teachers don’t teach others to teach, preparing Reiki Master Teachers to teach their own students has become my specialty. I honor this training process as a sacred journey and transmission.

If you decide you’d like to apply for Reiki Level 3 Master Teacher Certification, please contact me, and we’ll start the short application process. The message to post this special was so strong this morning, that I’m excited to see who steps forward. Offer valid if prepaid on or by June 30, 2021.

Happy Beltane! On this sacred day and season to the faeries, they jumped in for one of the May Specials. The other comes by special request.

MAY 2021 SPECIALS

The Faeries’ Dream

The Fae seem to go through phases of having strong messages and support for humanity, and I (and others) sense a recent increase in activity. This 30-minute reading can focus on Faery advice, requests, and/or messages for you, and/or instructions on how you can connect more easily and effectively with this Realm.

The Faery Realm holds the original imprint of our completely pure, loving and healed planet, so working with the Fae always puts us in close proximity of that possibility as material fact — what has always remained and thus already is pure, healed and beautiful. This reading springs from such knowing and offers a chance to learn what your faerie companions would most love for you…
