Ann Kreilkamp ~ Aftermath, New Moon in Taurus: Starting Over from Zero

I enjoyed this post from Ann Kreilkamp, and I’ve noticed similar reboots for a number of people, including myself. In retrospect, I also experienced some of my most amazing dream downloads ever exactly when the fast moving Moon conjuncted my natal Mercury at 4 degrees Gemini. That was a direct hit of early morning insight and inspiration! For anyone who’s had a particularly rich or intense past week, this post offers some larger astrological context. I love the Edith Piaf song at the end.

Ann Kreilkamp ~ Aftermath, New Moon in Taurus: Starting Over from Zero

The powerful Taurus New Moon of May 4th has come and gone. And if you are one of those who found that some long simmering drama finally came to a head during that time and continues now to completely dissolve a Neptunian spell that you had been under for the past two years (one Mars cycle) via new information (Mars in Gemini) which blew your previous world-view to smithereens (Jupiter in Sagittarius), these three planets, Neptune with Jupiter, triggered by fast-moving Mars, in a three way, very stressful, and very enlightening T-cross, then congrats. You’re not alone. I personally know two people  whose primary relationships, each two years long, blew up over these last few days, and precisely due to new and startling information, leaving both of them at zero, starting all over again.

Integration Lifetimes and Human Evolution

This January 2012 post wants to go up again as more and more people sense and begin to embrace the integration process.

Laura Bruno's Blog

Readers and clients have recently asked me questions regarding what I call “integration lifetimes.” In a “regular” lifetime, people choose one or two things as their focus, attempting to resolve them so as to free themselves from specific karmic ties or continuing influence. Unlike regular lifetimes, “integration lifetimes” attempt to unite and utilize all previous incarnations — assembling them into something far beyond that which has come before. In essence, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

Whereas regular lifetimes allow people to ignore “irrelevant” experiences, themes, relationships or gifts, integration lifetimes demand attention to and embracing of our greater being. For example, if a soul on a regular lifetime has major money and persecution issues to work through, but pre-incarnately decides to narrow this lifetime’s focus to resolving two particular relationships, then money and persecution problems will not affect the soul much during this lifetime —…

T-Shirts: A Fun, Silly Side Project, Plus a Lyme Book Update

I wasn’t going to mention this on my blog; in fact, I created these t-shirts on a whim, released them into the Universe and then promptly forgot about them. When I create something visual, I get so immersed in the present moment and then move onto the next thing, fully immersing in that. Sweet Faery Twin Tania Marie reminded me of the t-shirts by posting one of herself wearing the one I designed and sent among her birthday gifts:

IMG_3096

It features a teal fairy and script reading “Fairy Important Person.” She shared a closeup photo, too, and people started asking where she got her shirt. You can find it here, in several color options. 🙂

That reminded me that I created a text only version, along with some “Wyrd is the Word” shirts, all of which you can find here.

They were a fun diversion after creating Reiki Level 2 Symbols: A Guided Practice Journal and Lyme Journal: A Guided Recovery Workbook, as well as the synchronicity, answered prayer and dream journals.

In any case, those are some behind the scenes projects I worked on last fall and winter, before reading back to back Tolkien novels, traveling and getting back to painting. I always have some kind of creative project flowing in the garden, house, writing, painting, or something else. I just rarely think to mention the smaller creations, even though I have so much fun doing them.

For those of you eagerly awaiting The Metaphysics of Lyme book, I’ve given myself a break until June, and then I’ll focus on editing and releasing that book sometime in late 2019. I appreciate your patience. Visual arts fill my well. Writing — though I do a lot of it — pulls from that well, so I periodically need to refill my well in order to continue writing. The good news is that I talk each week with so many clients dealing with Lyme disease that I have constant material rising to the surface for inclusion and revamping in the book, in order to create the most valuable Lyme resource I can.

In the meantime, Lyme Journal encourages readers to delve into deeper patterns and self-healing possibilities for people with Lyme or any other chronic illness/injury that hasn’t responded well to traditional treatments.

What can I say? I’ve got four planets in Gemini and Virgo Rising — lots of Mercury in my chart. Change is good for me, but I eventually cycle back to old projects with new insights and energy. My process just takes awhile for more complex creations. 🙂

Early May Garden Update

This morning began with painting sunflowers and then moved into buying and planting marigolds, snapdragons, red and yellow chard, purple basil, Romaine and purple lettuce, dill, a hot pepper plant, and cilantro. I think I spied a volunteer sunflower poking through the leaves, and most of the perennials seem to have survived the Polar Vortex. I’ll get some collards and kale soon, but in the meantime, last year’s purple kale is making a run for its second season.

Our neighbor already caught and relocated one of two groundhogs who share our backyards. As usual, I hope the purple colors, onions, garlic, chives, fragrant herbs, and Expel deterrent around the front bed perimeter keep those groundhogs and bunnies safely out of front yard garden range. If so, then it’s just earwigs and slugs — always someone. 😉

In any case, it looks good for now. Thought I’d share some photos in the late afternoon light I find so magical:

Door Number 10: Hopi/Jewel in the Lotus

So grateful that not one, but two friends yesterday asked if I hadn’t already painted a Sun tarot card portal. I had forgotten the details of this one, commissioned and painted in 2010. I customized the imagery to the patron’s intentions and daydreams, which have all since come true, including a move to Pagosa Springs. I painted two portals in actual doorways of her home, both with strong nods to Pagosa Springs.

Preparing for that move became bittersweet, as both doors’ intentions had manifested, but she learned replacing the doors so she could bring these with her would cost thousands of dollars. I told her not to worry, that the portals had obviously already done their job.

My current Sun project has more traditional imagery, but with extra joyful exuberance. In so many ways it feels right to paint a Sun portal of my own. In the meantime, I enjoyed a trip down memory lane looking at the original photos of this fun and powerful portal.

Someone commissioned Door Number 10 from me, and I finished it about a week and a half ago. The photos are posted on Facebook, but I’ve had some requests for a more complete write-up here. Ask and you shall receive. 🙂

I really enjoyed painting this door! As my first commissioned door, it gave me a chance to code and design a portal to someone else’s intentions and dreams. This part of the process was as fun and rewarding as I anticipated. Once we decided on a theme — The Sun tarot card— I started asking her questions about quotes, mantras and important symbols in her life. By spending time in her home, I got a feel for her decorating style, and I also noticed that she happened to have a sun tattooed on her upper back. I decided to incorporate her tattoo into the door design, but…

Happy Beltane and May 2019 Specials

Happy Beltane! In the Northern Hemisphere, early May and Beltane offer a return to fertility, the union of masculine and feminine, and the energy of bursting forth into the new. Along with Samhain in the Southern Hemisphere, Beltane is an important day for Faeries, and a time of very thin veils. If you’re an empath, you might want to shield yourself from too much energy — or use this potent time to connect with Mother Earth, Ancestors, and the Faery Realm.

MAY 2019 SPECIALS

Integration Insights

This month brings a brand new special, because I sense so many people attempting the tricky task of integration. This 20-minute reading explores seeming opposites or tensions that your soul longs to honor in a harmonious way. Competing intentions can slow you down or block your path. Identifying this split — and finding new ways to bridge the gap — will summon new and more appropriate opportunities your way.

If you already know your internal drama, we can use this time to synthesize and redirect your energy into more productive and satisfying pursuits. If you have no idea what (or even if) you’re trying to integrate, but you feel frustrated, lost or stuck, this reading will identify which parts of you play tug of war instead of allowing you to thrive. Once you know and honor your multidimensional soul’s true desires, you can much more easily manifest them.

20 minutes for $77 if prepaid on or before 5/31/19. Special can be doubled for 40 minutes at $154. Please contact me to sign up.
