July 2018 Specials

Today is the last day to sign up for June 2018 Specials. You can find those by clicking here.

In determining July’s Specials, I considered the unusual alignments in July, including Mars Retrograde, Uranus in Taurus and all the planets on one side of the Sun. This combo makes for a good time to re-evaluate options and desires, then align yourself for an energy infusion of the highest positive outcomes. In other words, it’s a great time for a …

Timeline Tune-Up:

This 40-minute offering helps identify which areas of your life can most benefit from the energetic openings this month. I focus your reading on finding small shifts you can make in order to generate monumental trajectory changes — kind of like switching the tracks on a railway. Tiny adjustments in the here and now can result in hugely different journeys later. $133 if prepaid on or before July 31, 2018. (Save $44 off the usual 40-minute rate.) Please contact me to sign up.

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 right after Summer Solstice. This 20-minute reading can focus on Faery advice, requests, 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 to focus upon instead of all those things that crop up as worries or concerns. Invoking delight brings us that much closer to experiencing it. $77 if prepaid on or by July 31, 2018. Please contact me to sign up.

Fall Equinox Class Update:

Just a heads up that the September 22, 2018 class at Lake Tahoe co-taught by Tania Marie and me is already 2/3 full. That means we only have four spots left in “Living a More Magickal Life with Laura Bruno & Tania Marie.” We’re limiting this unique workshop, Equinox ritual and blessing/activation to just twelve participants. If you’d like attend, it would be good to reserve your spot. First come, first served, and what a powerful group so far! You can find more details and register here.

 

Ann Kreilkamp ~ “Red Pilling”: Is the Awakening Process Taking Hold?

I love this post by astologer, permaculture village creator,  author and more, Ann Kreilkamp:

“Red Pilling”: Is the Awakening Taking Hold?

In the past 48 hours I’ve heard about two couples familiar to me, one of whom has been married for many years, the other a strong, bonded, romantic couple for only the past few months, and both these couples are now at each other’s throats. Why? Not over small, stubborn, personal issues. No. Instead, over something seemingly much more abstract, “issues” having to do with how one sees the entire world, or in short, one’s world view.

In both these cases, one person in each couple has been red- pilling his or her self and the other has not. So my question: is this phenomenon now being repeated all across the country?

If you haven’t heard the phrase “red-pilling,” it’s a convenient way to indicate that one is no longer “taking the blue pill,” no longer inside The Matrix that programs us to be-LIE-ve in culturally sanctioned illusions that get and keep us dumbed down and passive.

As I look back, I realize that my own introduction to seeing through the matrix began with the Kennedy assasination. One might call that event my initiation into adulthood. This stunning, out-of-nowhere, obviously evil deed, the gory details of which were  broadcast over and over again on the television, took place not even one month prior to my 21st birthday. Even then, I sensed that something was very wrong with the explanations, but I had no idea what, and buried my distrust for many years, until one Saturn cycle later, when Oliver Stone’s 1991 movie JFK brought it up again for the culture to review.

But not just that. Continue reading

As Within, So Without: When You and Your Garden Become One

Just noticed this, but it’s always true. Many couples begin to look like each other. Some people and animals take on each others qualities. For me it’s the land. My garden and I are one.

Magick Wands and Chris Hedges ~ A Time for ‘Sublime Madness’

This wants to go up again. I now have four. 🙂

Laura Bruno's Blog

Thanks to Gillian for drawing my attention to this particular Chris Hedges article. Though dire, it’s also quite an unusual post for him in that he recognizes the power of the human imagination. I have been getting the same message lately about the state of our world: things have gone so far beyond what normal “doing” can remedy that it’s time for magic, magick, mgieck … whatever you call it, it’s time to tap in, dig deep, and empower those wands, spells, prayers, and beliefs in miracles.

With all the debate about Second Amendment rights, I’ve done some major soul searching. I don’t own a gun, and I don’t desire to own a gun. I’ve imagined what it would feel like to shoot someone, even in self defense, and to me personally, that just doesn’t feel in alignment with the rest of how I live my life. But neither does…

Mars Retrograde and Astrology for the Second Half of 2018

I finally had a chance to listen to this excellent Rune Soup podcast talking about Mars Retrograde today, June 26th through August 27th. Gordon White and Austin Coppock also discuss  Uranus in Taurus and Venus Retrograde, giving historical background to help predict the future. The beginning features some teenage boy humor about “Ur-anus,” but the entire show is well worth a listen.

I can’t help noticing just how timely this Mars Rx coincides with the Board’s projected decision time for so many of the issues affecting our neighborhood. Glad to hear our strategy has been right on and astrologically supported. If you want personal and/or geopolitical insights for the second half of 2018, this is a great place to begin:

Our Relocation: The Inside Scoop on Dra’Faven

Celebrating 1 year today since Two Guys and a Truck moved us to Kalamazoo! What a surreal year it’s been. So grateful to have met such amazingly smart, active, caring and creative neighbors … and we love our home. Much gratitude for all!

Laura Bruno's Blog

At long last, I can make official what I’ve only hinted at for months: this past Summer David and I bought a house and relocated from Goshen, IN to Kalamazoo, MI.

After considering many other locations and then taking a whirlwind tour of Southwest Michigan in Summer 2016, we found that Kalamazoo offered all the things that attracted us to far more distant locales. It feels like the “sweet spot” of

Summer Solstice, Astrology and Earth Changes

Happy Summer Solstice to everyone in the Northern Hemisphere! (And Happy Winter Solstice to my readers in the Southern Hemisphere!) May the light of clarity continue to dawn and shine, both inside and outside ourselves. I’ve noticed clarity as a major theme in recent sessions, so I thought I’d make a special post about some upcoming space alignments, along with an update on Uranus in Taurus.

Even if you don’t believe in astrology, the following video shares physical Earth effects of a very rare planetary alignment we’ll experience from July 19th-early September. The lead-up has begun, with all the gas giants already on one side of the Sun. As the creator of this video documents, “June 20, 2018: Over the past 125 years the earth has only been in this cosmic planetary position 6 times, during each of those six times some historic events occurred on the planet with regard to volcanic eruptions and earthquakes. https://www.mrmbb333.com

I include the video not to generate fear but as background to the individual and collective astrological effects/observations I note below the video. As Above, So Below. As Within, So Without. Everything connects. Whether or not we recognize those connections, they still affect us:

On May 9, 2018, I posted “Uranus in Taurus: What I’m Noticing So Far,” because sessions indicated people already feeling the effects of Uranus shifting from Aries to Taurus on May 15th. Things continue to heat up on the collective level and especially for anyone whose natal chart receives exact aspects with Uranus in early Taurus. You are much more than your Sun sign, so even non-Taureans can experience huge lightning (aka “lightening”) strikes from the rebel liberator, cosmic weirdo Uranus. Continue reading
