July 2022 Forecast and Third Quarter North Node Horoscopes


From start to finish, July 2022 is lit! These transits will affect everyone on planet Earth and beyond, but especially the United States.

This month brings the first US Independence Day after the first exact US Pluto Return in February 2022. Due to retrograde motion, Pluto crosses this exact point again on July 12. Some ephemera have slight variations, so you might see this date listed anywhere between July 11-14. The point is, July brings huge intensity to the United States — which has worldwide impact — and this second pass of Pluto’s Return coincides with a Full Moon in Capricorn.

The mega event this month — or possibly this decade — also deals with independence and revolution. That’s the triple conjunction among Mars, Uranus and the North Node in Taurus, which we’ll feel the last week of July into the first week of August. This explosive contact releases highly volatile, destiny level breakthrough energy that reverberates around the world.

Please see details below, and further down you’ll find new Third Quarter North Node Horoscopes. In times of chaos, you can recalibrate by finding your True North. As the Hopi Prophecies say, “This could be a good time.”

July 1 Mars in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn. The month begins with a power struggle of individuals and/or the military (Mars in Aries) vs. top down, corrupt authority and Shadow governments (Pluto in Capricorn). Mars in his home sign tips power towards personal sovereignty rather than the plutocracy, but tensions run high. This initial transit sets a revolutionary tone for the entire month. With Mars in Aries sextile Mercury in Gemini — both extra strong in their home signs — we can expect fiery words and calls to action.

July 5 Mars enters Taurus and Mercury enters Cancer. Just hours after Fourth of July fireworks, energies shift. Mars moves from a warlike posture to determination. Action slows but becomes more deliberate. Mars in Taurus moves a mountain one grain of sand at a time — but that mountain moves! Mercury in Cancer shifts mind chatter into emotional calls for comfort and protection. We gain greater understanding of the importance of our home, our family, and our country. This double ingress tones down some of the volatile rhetoric. Still, bulls have horns and crabs have claws. The energy morphs but doesn’t lessen.

July 9 Mercury in Cancer square Jupiter in Aries. Tensions arise as impulses soar. Jupiter in Aries wants big action, while Mercury in Cancer cautions against rash judgment. Such friction hones a plan for growth that nurtures and protects individuals and families. How might this affect your own hopes and needs? When do you crawl into your shell, and when do you leap toward adventure?

July 12 US Pluto Return goes exact again. Look to February 20-22, 2022 for clues about which areas this might affect. We could see significant shifts around the Russia/Ukraine situation, as well as supply chain issues and other themes that arose earlier this year. Pluto is relentless. Ignoring a repeat tsunami doesn’t make it go away. Pluto destroys in order to renew and regenerate. As Within, So Without. What in your own life has withered or rotted on the vine? Pull it out, so something new can grow in its place. With Pluto involved, irrevocable change is coming. When we accept the death, rebirth happens faster.

July 13 Full Moon in Capricorn, 2:38 p.m. Eastern time. This “Blessing Moon” closely trines the North Node in Taurus, bringing an earthy, collective benediction. Turning up the intensity, this is the second of three Supermoon’s. It loosely conjuncts the US Pluto Return. The degree of this Full Moon closely conjuncts the Saturn-Pluto Conjunction on January 12, 2020 — the signature energy of 2020. Hidden and taboo topics come to light, and we’ll feel them in a deeper, more profound way than usual. With Mercury in Cancer sextile Uranus in Taurus, we’ll find unconventional ways to discuss these insights. Venus in Gemini trine Saturn in Aquarius suggests we’re in it for the long haul, but our love, commitment and artistry might take awhile to manifest. In this case, “Delay leads to delight.”

July 17 Venus enters Cancer. For the next three weeks, empathy and compassion run higher than usual. We show love for others by nurturing them, holding the hand of those afraid or in need. Think of Mother Mary or Quan Yin energy. A feminine, flowy time to practice random acts of kindness.

July 19 Mercury enters Leo and Chiron stations retrograde in Aries. Creativity and confidence soar as the Messenger enters the sign of the lion. It feels easier to maintain a positive outlook, even in the face of scary things. Somehow we’ll find our way to the radiant life we all deserve. Chiron stationing retrograde brings our healing process into more introverted form. Focus on wounds that deal with identity, head injuries, sovereignty, the Self, and individuation.

July 22 Sun enters Leo. The Sun enters his home sign for a month of confidence and courage to follow our heart. Things seem brighter with the Sun in Leo. A good time to eat heart healthy foods and flaunt our manes. If your tresses seem dull, consider a deep conditioning treatment or bold new hairstyle. If your life feels dull, try something you’ve always wanted to do.

July 28 New Moon in Leo, 1:55 p.m. Eastern. Less than three hours later, Jupiter stations retrograde in Aries. Through the course of this retrograde until November 23, expansive Jupiter will cross back over the World Axis as he moves into Pisces to finish up whatever got triggered by April’s Jupiter-Neptune conjunction and the April 30th Beltane Eve, New Moon in Taurus Solar Eclipse. This July 28 New Moon in Leo closely conjuncts the US natal chart’s North Node — another high-impact trigger. Meanwhile, the transiting (collective) North Node presses Uranus in Taurus as Mars lights a fuse from the other side. Warrior and Revolutionary have their date with Destiny. Add to this the Delta Aquarid meteor shower from July 28-29, and we’ve got the Eight of Wands in Tarot. It’s Wild Card energy: shock and awe, Divine intervention, events that rewrite history.

July 31 the triple conjunction peaks in Taurus. This Mars-Uranus-North Node transit spans a week prior through a week after but peaks from July 31st – August 1. This is already a potent magical time of very thin veils. August 1 marks the traditional celebration of Lammas or Lughnasadh. In Celtic tradition, the Eve of a cross quarter day is even more powerful than the day itself. This turn of the Wheel of the Year celebrates diverse skills coming together as one and is the first of three harvest festivals.

How July’s sky weather affects you will vary, depending on your entire natal chart, but your North Node Horoscope transcends monthly sky events. That’s because your North Node reveals what your soul came here to do. By midlife, the soul starts longing and pressing us to live our true purpose. At first, it whispers through intuition. Then it knocks a little louder through “coincidences” and external events. When not heard and honored, the soul’s longing can show up as health crises, marriage or work issues, or wondering “is this all there is?” If you feel a need to reinvent yourself, following North Node guidance helps you do that authentically — for you.

Unlike generic Sun Sign horoscopes, which ignore so many other aspects, following North Node guidance will always lead you in the right direction. Doors open, healing happens, relationships improve, and life gets more magical. This quarterly column will help you tap into your personal North Node Mojo. When you start living your North Node purpose, we all win, because you not only begin to light up your own life. You light up the world.     

You can find your North Node sign here which is often different than your Sun sign. If you’re right on the cusp, consider both possibilities or book a reading for more clarity.


ARIES NORTH NODE: Jupiter remains in Aries all quarter, adding expansive fire to your North Node sign. This bold optimism eases tension as you move through Cancer and Libra seasons. Don’t lose sight of your own course by getting too bogged down nurturing and pleasing others. Mars — the ruler of Aries — enters Gemini on August 20, where he’ll spend a rare seven months, sextiling Aries until March 25, 2023. This transit offers supportive energy. You can take action by seeing through former limitations. As you settle into clarity about codependent relationships, the Wheel of Fortune turns in your favor. New experiences await.

TAURUS NORTH NODE: One of the biggest transits this decade occurs in your sign at the end of July into early August. Staid Taurus has had Uranus stirring things up since May 15, 2018, but July 2022 kicks things up several notches. Mars joins the North Node and Uranus in Taurus in a triple conjunction big enough to knock your socks off. Taurus normally wants to minimize chaos, but you can lean into the energies in order to make quantum leaps. If you’ve felt unsatisfied in an area of life, July and August are a good time for proactive change. You can ride the wave of supportive energies moving through your sign. Take action: you’ll have more influence if you embrace available upgrades.

GEMINI NORTH NODE: When the world goes nuts, shift focus. You’ll benefit from energies this quarter and beyond. Mars — the planet of action and initiative — enters Gemini on August 20 and continues popping off Gemini fireworks until March 25, 2023. Miracles happen when you allow yourself to try new things. Where do passion and interest lead? What tickles your fancy? What turns you into a giddy little kid? Gemini doesn’t take the world too seriously. Sure, Third Quarter 2022 brings intense transits, but your North Node sign makes you extra adaptable to change. Look for silver linings: you’ll find them all over the place. You got this!

CANCER NORTH NODE: In July, Mercury and Venus join the Sun in your North Node sign. You’ll find it easier to articulate feelings and nurture the ones you love. A hint of magic pervades this quarter. You have what you need to thrive, but it takes time and space to receive the blessings. Riptides will pull you under if you try to control the external world. Tend to your own domain. The Moon rules Cancer North Node natives, so pay attention to its cycles. It’s easier to start things during a Waxing Moon, easier to release them in a Waning Moon. Full Moons act like hinge points. New Moons hit the reset button. When burnout strikes, this natural cycle will recharge you.

LEO NORTH NODE: We’re entering your season! Mercury and your sign ruler — the Sun — enter Leo on July 19 and 22, followed by a powerful New Moon in Leo on the 28th. Venus graces your sign from August 11-September 5. Your nodal axis gets squared by all the activity in Taurus. Friction and irritation alert you to coming opportunities. What makes your heart sing? You don’t need to shout that answer to the world just yet, but Third Quarter 2022 adds fuel to your fire. You’ll awaken from whatever nightmares plague you, provided you watch out for #1. Yes, Leo, that means you. When you prosper, everyone benefits. Your greatest contribution happens when you follow your heart.

VIRGO NORTH NODE: Mercury, your sign’s ruler, enters Virgo on August 4, helping you sort through all the details. Virgo North Node natives are service oriented, and this quarter brings new understanding of your role here. It’s time to release old dogmas and illusions. The powerful action in Taurus brings supportive, liberating energy so you can live your best life. Starting on August 22 (or 23), the Sun spends a month highlighting your North Node sign. August 27 brings your yearly New Moon reset, and Venus joins the party on September 5. Third Quarter 2022 asks you to put faith into daily devotion. Not pie in the sky platitudes. Real world choices inspired by dreams and mystical awareness.

LIBRA NORTH NODE: Love is in the air for those who seek it. Every misunderstanding or disappointment offers a chance for higher level harmony and balance. Strange and fleeting opportunities arise. There is enough to go around, but you’ll need to pivot in order to receive the blessings. This is not a time to charge ahead. It’s a time to watch and wait, then open to the experience. Jupiter and Chiron in Aries continue to trigger big lessons from your past. These don’t always feel good, but making peace allows you to move forward. You’ll benefit from Mars in Gemini and Mercury retrograde in Libra, but don’t rush. The Sun shifts seasons to your sign on September 22.

SCORPIO NORTH NODE: July’s big energies in your South Node sign of Taurus could disrupt your old status quo. Know this: whatever shifts needs to move. Taurus is the slowest moving sign, which means Scorpio North Node natives cling to familiar patterns even when they no longer serve. Just as some trees only grow after a fire, Scorpio blessings often arrive after some kind of death or destruction. These could be metaphorical, so don’t panic! You can make quantum leaps this quarter by releasing old, false limitations and at least loosening your grip on anyone or anything standing in the way of your regeneration and rebirth. Divine providence knows more than you do. Put the Serenity Prayer on repeat.

SAGITTARIUS NORTH NODE: Third Quarter 2022 supercharges your nodal axis. You’ll receive supportive energy from any planets in Aries, Leo, Libra and Aquarius. Anything moving through Gemini pings your South Node, so be careful not to spread yourself too thin. Parties, gossip and social media could overwhelm you. If so, allow yourself to take a break! Seek deeper friendships and inner guidance, rather than superficial “like’s” and popularity. You’ll find community by forging your own way. Your boldness activates those around you. Mars moving through Gemini could trigger arguments about old issues and relationships. Stay strong. It’s OK to know what you know and follow that lead.

CAPRICORN NORTH NODE: This is a monumental quarter inside yourself, even if outer events don’t seem to touch you. As planets move through Cancer, they conjunct your South Node, bringing new insights and closure on old patterns and relationships. You’ll need to stay grounded, both physically and emotionally, because some of these shifts could feel tectonic. July 13’s Full Moon in Capricorn will affect you more than most. Continue to create new structures to support you through coming changes. If you feel bereft or scared, flip your perspective. How are events positioning you into greater authority and leadership? What newer commitments feel ripe?

AQUARIUS NORTH NODE: The New Moon in Leo on July 28th occurs in your South Node sign, while the triple conjunction in Taurus squares the Leo-Aquarius axis. Taskmaster Saturn continues his stay in Aquarius, while the Sun, Mercury and Venus all spend time in Leo this quarter. In other words, you could feel some friction between old and new. You might struggle to find your place inside a group. It’s productive struggle, though — like a butterfly wrestling its way out of a cocoon. Hang in there: August 11 brings a Full Moon in Aquarius, and this bodes well. Mars moves into Gemini on August 20, initiating seven months of active, positive support for your highest path. The coming energies in Libra add wind beneath your wings.

PISCES NORTH NODE: Things have calmed down in Pisces, but they heat up in Cancer, Gemini, Leo and Virgo — your South Node sign. Ruler Neptune remains in your North Node sign, but most of the activation occurs through supportive trines, tense squares, surreal quincunx’s and strong opposition. You’re on a journey with varied terrain and weather. Hills and valleys, sunshine, hail and rainbows. In the bigger scheme of things, you’re moving, and that’s all you really need to know. Watch for signs and synchronicities along the way, especially animals. If you have an unusual sighting or dream, look up the shamanic or spiritual meaning of that ally. Your path is mystical and inspired, but few would call it “rational.” Make peace with your process.

New Moon in Cancer ~ June 28-29, 2022

My June 2022 Forecast notes:

June 28 New Moon in Cancer, 10:52 p.m. Eastern US time. This is a big aspect day with the Sun/Moon point square Jupiter in Aries. Venus sextiles Jupiter, and Mars sextiles Saturn. Neptune stations retrograde until December 3. The Sabian Symbol for this New Moon echoes such a large gathering of players: “A GROUP OF RABBITS DRESSED IN HUMAN CLOTHES WALK AS IF ON PARADE.Dane Rudhyar‘s KEYNOTE provides a positive way to focus our energies at this time: “The tendency in all forms of life to imitate higher forms as a stimulus to growth.”

Because the New Moon point closely conjuncts Black Moon Lilith, the dark energy of this New Moon hits home in an especially intense way. Dark doesn’t always mean “bad.” Seeds germinate in the dark, as do deep soul processes before they see the light of day.

We most often associate Black Moon Lilith with her more negative aspects: trauma, sexual abuse, Mommy Dearest, miscarriage, infanticide, hysteria, Jane Eyre’s Mad Woman in the Attic, rebellion, autoimmune reactions, hot flashes, and Baba Yaga. A balanced Lilith brings Faery Godmother, “Dark Goddess,” and Women Who Run with the Wolves type energy: strong, magical and deeply feminine empowerment. In order to access these parts of Black Moon Lilith, we need to honor the wisdom of our bodies — the biofeedback that arrives in the form of visceral reactions to people, thoughts and life events. When we make peace with our inner Wild Woman, she brings her beauty, creativity, and raw power into balance with passion, authenticity and true intimacy.

Black Moon Lilith is the one who hides behind this New Moon, while “A GROUP OF RABBITS DRESSED IN HUMAN CLOTHES WALK AS IF ON PARADE.” Dane Rudhyar expands on this Sabian Symbol of Cancer 8°:

KEYNOTE: The tendency in all forms of life to imitate higher forms as a stimulus to growth.

This rather strange symbol points to what is essential in all first attempts at developing consciousness and furthering and furthering one’s growth through association with those who have already reached a superior evolutionary or mental level. Every seeker looks for an “Exemplar.” The religious mystic speaks of “the Imitation of Christ.” In Japan the music student sits in front of his teacher playing an instrument, and carefully imitates his every gesture.

The New Moon/Black Moon Lilith’s square to Jupiter in Aries urges us to assert ourselves in bigger ways. Jupiter wants us to have more courage and willpower to step out of our Cancer shells. Finding others who’ve done what we feel led to do helps us to imagine pathways forward, even into new territory. With Venus in Gemini sextile Jupiter, the power of love, artistry and self-esteem assist this process. Authentic adornment, creating a kind of “avatar” or “Glamour” can help us to step into a bigger version of ourselves. This goes beyond “fake it ’til you make it.” Rather, we project the hidden part of ourselves into the world ahead of us, and we gradually solidify our enchanted vision.

Neptune stationing retrograde helps us to connect the not-quite realm with the here and now. The ruler of dreams, mystics, spiritual inspiration and the Collective Unconscious turns inward until December 3, allowing us to incubate our dearest hopes and dreams. The Witch’s Pyramid comes to mind: “To Know, To Will, To Dare, To Keep Silent.” Mars sextile Saturn guarantees that work is being done. Even if we don’t yet see tangible results, these will come. We can draw inspiration from those who came before, but we must apply ourselves in ways that work for us.

Practical magic requires discipline. When we commit to becoming more of our authentic Self — when we align ourselves with a Higher Power — magic flows through us and around us. We become the magic, and we can do this even on the darkest night. Instead of pulling rabbits out of a hat, they parade around us.

I’ll leave you with one of my favorite passages from The Velveteen Rabbit:

“’Real isn’t how you are made,’ said the Skin Horse. ‘It’s a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real.’

“‘Does it hurt?’ asked the Rabbit.

“‘Sometimes,’ said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful. ‘When you are Real you don’t mind being hurt.’

“‘Does it happen all at once, like being wound up,’ he asked, ‘or bit by bit?’

“‘It doesn’t happen all at once,’ said the Skin Horse. ‘You become. It takes a long time. That’s why it doesn’t happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.”

― Margery Williams, The Velveteen Rabbit

Happy Solstice!

Wishing everyone a beautiful Solstice — whether Midsummer like I’m celebrating, or Midwinter Down Under! Some garden shots to greet the day:

These lilies bloomed right on time to go with the daisy centers, just as I imagined they would.

The Robinhood roses love their new cedar mulch, and the combination smells heavenly.

This stone sits as a placeholder in an area where I can’t decide what to plant! David just happened to have it on hand for just such an occasion.

From my garden to yours: Happy Summer Solstice! The Wheel of the Year makes another fateful turn. Blessed Be and be the blessing. ❤

Multiple Timelines

This wants to go up again.

Laura Bruno's Blog

Multiple timelines are in effect. Not everyone is on the same trajectory, so tend to your own reality. Pray for discernment to follow the best path for you. This might look and feel very different than the path of those around you, whether in person or online.

Multiple options exist — some of them full on dystopia, some with moments of sorrow but also new levels of joy and regeneration. Creativity is as — or even more — important than consciousness, at this juncture. What kind of story are you “writing”?

To each their own.

Many will abdicate their creative power and get swept away by someone else’s narrative. This, too, is choice. Do your best to choose wisely — for you. Just know that choices exist.

Love and Blessings ….

Garden Update: Purples, Whites, Yellows and Magenta

Each day brings subtle and vibrant changes in the garden. This week shifted the purple spotlight from chives, sage, irises, and giant alliums to salvia and clematis. The backyard garden’s gone a bit nuts in its abundance:

That trough bed is overstuffed but looks like it will produce well. I’ve got a dwarf tomato plant, basil, two different types of amaranth, purple mustard, radishes, carrots, peppers, zucchini, some unknown squash, sugar snap peas, yard long beans, cucumbers, sunflowers, various greens, radish, nasturtium, celery, zinnias and soybeans in there. I’m sure I’ve forgotten something. Some of these are nearing the end of their lives, while I succession sowed other seeds that are just tiny sprouts right now.

The lilies, echinacea and hyssop next to the trough will flower when summer gets going. Right now, dianthus and clematis wow with pops of color amidst the edibles:

For once, I’m glad to have part of the garden tucked behind the shed. I goofed! I bought plant starts for personal sized butternut squash, and for some reason, I thought the plants would also be “personal sized.” Joke’s on me: those squash plants are on the move! It doesn’t look good, but you can only see when you get close. I added makeshift trellis extenders to catch the vines trying to spread all over the lawn. In another week or so, that crate and those extenders will be covered in green.

Behind the first bed, you can see the white trellis has not gotten any sweet potato vine action. They’re not too happy back there, but the garlic, mustard, sunflowers, and lettuce are thriving. I keep telling those sweet potatoes, “Hey, if you grow UP, you’ll get more light. Stretch, baby, stretch. You can DO it!” But so far they haven’t. We’re supposed to have some 97(!) degree days soon. Maybe those sweet potatoes will console me for all the lettuce that wants to bolt.

Up front, I’m loving pops of white throughout the garden. These don’t show up well in photographs, but the arugula flowers, spirea blossoms, and chamomile make me so happy! The daisies give an idea of how bright the whites can get. I think these look like sunny side up eggs:

The “yolks” should match the lilies behind them once they bloom. The chamomile showed up a little against the evergreen and salvia. I’m not sure the mini evergreen to the left is supposed to be that color, but it complements the yellow centers.

The sedum surprised me with so many yellow blooms this year. Here you see it in front of button flower that echoes the form and color of flowering chives:

In addition to purples, bright whites and yellows, magenta yarrow and dianthus add so much vibrance to the front yard:

I have multiples of most plants because the eye likes to dance around the garden, seeking repeated colors and forms. It’s hard to choose which shots to share, but these bring a little of my garden to you. I hope some of the joy and relaxation transfer. If you were local, I’d give you lettuce, but virtual visitors get flowers. 🙂

Full Moon in Sagittarius ~ June 14, 2022

My June 2022 Forecast notes:

June 14 Full Moon in Sagittarius, 7:52 a.m. Eastern US time. Known as the Strong Sun Moon, Rose Moon, Honey Moon or Strawberry Moon, this is also the first of three Supermoons, making it appear extra large in the sky. This Moon point suggests good fortune and sweet reward for those who dance to the beat of their own inner drum. Pray for guidance, and trust your intuition to guide you well.

I don’t know what to make of this, but it’s so precise I need to mention it. The June 14, 2022 Full Moon occurs on Donald Trump’s birthday and closely conjuncts the Full Moon that happened the day he was born. It’s actually in the very same degree as the Full Moon on June 14, 1946. The Sun-Moon axis in 2022 closely aligns with Donald Trump’s natal Sun-Moon axis. However you feel about him, this June 14, 2022 Full Moon carries some of his signature.

Some people will find that horrifying, while others find it comforting. Regardless of personal feelings about Trump, the Sabian Symbol for the Full Moon point in 2022 and 1946 is fortuitous:


KEYNOTE: The reward which meets every effort at integrating into a social environment for those who remain true to their own selves.

The bluebird is a symbol of happiness, but also it refers to what one might call a spiritually oriented mind – to which the color blue relates, especially when a ‘bird’ is mentioned. A cottage is normally a part of a community, and the implication is that its inhabitants are well-adapted, either to the life of the community, or to their more or less isolated togetherness.

This is a fourth stage symbol, and it suggests that the essential technique for successful living is the development of a consciousness in which peace and happiness dwell. There is also a hint that GOOD FORTUNE is going to bless your life.

In addition to good fortune, the 2022 Full Moon also offers healing. Mars conjuncts Chiron at 16 Aries. The Sabian Symbol for this conjunction point is:


KEYNOTE: Attunement to the potency of invisible forces, of nature.     

It implies a call to REPOTENTIALIZATION. What this means also is the process of “becoming like a little child.” 

That last line recalls Matthew 18:3-6 where Jesus says to his disciples: “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Whoever receives one such child in my name, receives me, but whoever causes one of these little ones who believes in me to sin, it would be better for that one to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.”

“Becoming like a little child” feels easier at this 2022 Full Moon, as Mars conjunct Chiron activates deep healing of childhood wounds — helping us to reclaim our own childlike nature and identity.

Mars conjunct Chiron also activates mama bear energy to protect her cubs. Aside from Prince Andrew, the clients of Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell have not suffered public identification or consequences. We’ll see if this Full Moon brings any more of that sordid empire to light. We might also learn more about what really happened in Uvalde.

Saturn in Aquarius sextiles the Full Moon point and trines the Sun. These are harmonious, supportive aspects. If the Lord of Karma (Saturn) acts on behalf of humanity (Aquarius), we may finally see some justice. It might arrive as poetic justice or divine retribution. Schadenfreude could run high. In any case, this Full Moon will stir up healing issues around children.

Neptune in Pisces squares the Sun-Moon axis, suggesting that all is not as it appears. Full Moons bring things to light, but we will need to clear our spiritual vision in order to see through Glamour and distortions. At least two major timelines exist right now. Smoke and mirrors try to convince us the negative is much stronger than the positive. Spin, spin, spin! Yet behind the lies, sits A BLUEBIRD PERCHED ON THE GATE OF A COTTAGE, singing our GOOD FORTUNE. Do you choose El Mundo Bueno or El Mundo Malo?

At the time of the Full Moon, Venus sits halfway between Uranus and the North Node in Taurus. This Venus spot closely conjuncts a collective destiny level triple conjunction that activates in late July-early August. On June 14, the Goddess of Love links the revolutionary (Uranus) with collective destiny (North Node). In the last week of July through the first week of August, we’ll feel Mars, Uranus and the North Node triple conjunct within a degree of the June 14 Venus point. This triple conjunction is a rare and highly volatile transit. With focused intention, we can use this Full Moon’s Venus to infuse the upcoming transit with the highest vibration of Love, Light and collective evolution.

We can collectively intend Nietzsche’s “chaos that births a dancing star,” rather than “burn it all down” riots and color revolutions. This chaos that births a dancing star ties into the Full Moon conjuncting both asteroid Varda and the Galactic Center. Not to be confused with the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter, asteroid Varda travels far out in the trans-Neptunian Kuiper Belt. Varda is known as “the star queen” or “star kindler” from J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle Earth cosmology, and the Galactic Center acts like a birth canal.

I actually included the Nietzsche reference before I noticed the triple conjunction of Full Moon, Galactic Center and Varda. Here’s the full quote: “One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star.” Finding the conjunction confirmed this Full Moon’s mystical — and fertile — potential!

Mia Feroleto and Chief Henry Red Cloud Interviewed by Abby Martin

This is a disturbing but important post. Though difficult to fathom, some kind of karmic reckoning will take place one way or another. The more of us who recognize and shift these energies, the less need there will be for all of America to experience this level of occupation and destruction.

I can only say with a tearful and compassionate heart that I, for one, am deeply sorry for the actions of aggressors at the Wounded Knee massacre. We cannot change what happened in the past, but we can hold accountable the current Board Members at the Barre Museum. We can insist on the repatriation of human remains and sacred artifacts. “Just following orders” is no excuse. We must each face the demons in our own hearts and minds, and find the power to move forward in new ways, beyond the victim/abuser cycle.

You can find more information about the 130 year history of this struggle here.

Thank you to Mia and Chief Henry Red Cloud for continued activism, and thanks to Abby Martin for having the courage to conduct and air this interview. The Barre Museum has zero contact information available, and I’ve been shut down through ordinary means of finding a way to express public demand for change. For now, we can hold the situation in prayer and do whatever we each feel led to do behind the scenes. Prayer, Reiki and magic are often more powerful in these situations anyway.

Just know that we are in a VERY karmic time in the US right now. These kinds of issues matter more than most people realize. Whatever and however you feel led to do, please do. Sunlight is the best disinfectant.

Quick Garden Update

Mostly photos with little commentary today. The main thing I want to share is how easy it is to sneak edibles into what seems like a decorative garden. 🙂

lettuce, flowering bok choy, and “love in a mist”
kale, mustard, arugula, lettuce, garlic and marigolds
flowering chives and sage, kale, lily, garlic and zinnia
giant allium like a flower of life

Karen’s Dream of Owl and Me

Today’s post is, in some ways, a continuation of my Sleeping Bear Dunes and Birthday Owls post. I’ll begin with my dream journal recap of Karen’s dream. She has graciously allowed me to use her name here. You’ve already encountered her in the Two of Cups Equinox Portal post and the Queen of Wands Imbolc Portal post. If you’ve read those posts, you’ve gotten a peak into her journey, and you can see the synchronicities and joy begin to unfold in magical ways.

Fast forward to today’s dream journal recap:


“Karen’s Dream of Owl and Me”

Yesterday afternoon, client Karen (whose North Node conjuncts my Venus) told me she keeps forgetting to tell me about a dream she had. She rarely recalls her dreams, and to her knowledge has never dreamed about me. In her dream, she and I stood looking at an owl. When the owl opened its beak and mouth wide, I pointed to it and said, “Look, it makes a perfect ‘o’.” 

She tried to describe the symbol to me, because it was really an ‘o’ with points. I asked her to draw it and she sent me a drawing, then a photo of a Kentucky agate portal with “the right swoop if you make the sides a bit rounded.” She has her little witch/Queen of Wands portal I painted her now walking towards that portal. (It’s a slice of the Kentucky agate, and you can slightly see through it.)

I texted back, “Very cool to all of this! Especially the portal. I will have to ponder your dream. Thank you for sharing it. So basically, I pointed to the owl and said it was making a perfect O? Was it a baby owl?”

She replied, “It was not a baby owl. We were looking at an owl and it opened its mouth wide, and you made that comment. Now I’m not sure if there was any interaction or if we were just observing it. 

“Now [I’m] doubting myself because it wasn’t an o as in round, but it [m]ust have been a perfect symbol. Maybe some Rune that sounds like oh?”

I told her I would ponder this because nothing jumped out at me. Awoke around 3:55 a.m. just before David’s alarm went off. I realized, “It’s a UFO. Turn the owl mouth 90 degrees and it’s a flying saucer shaped UFO. An owl with open mouth gives a message about UFO’s.”

I emailed Karen so as not to wake her up: “Turn the dream symbol on its side and it’s a UFO flying saucer. This connection is central to Mike Clelland’s research, including the book I am in.” Then I included owl and alien emojis. I’m supposed to post about this. She has also been to Suttons Bay and the owl store. Apparently, there’s a spot where people hike down and often can’t get back. Not sure what she meant since this was the end of our session.

Fell back asleep, and I got more downloads for my July 2022 Forecast. The precision of highly charged astrology transits hitting the US in July is insane. No wonder I have such a feeling of massive shift. From start to finish — it’s not just the Mars-Uranus-North Node conjunction. That’s like the fireworks finale to a month of fireworks — literal and figurative.

END of dream journal.

After writing up the dream, I asked Karen: “Can I post about this without using your name, and if so, may I include the photos and your texted description of the dream? If not, no worries on either account. I just got the sense I was supposed to document this on my blog for some reason.”

She replied: “Sure. You can do anything you want. I don’t even care if you mention my name if you feel led to. And very cool connection you made which reminded me that I saw either a really futuristic plane or a UFO last week. It was black and looked sort of like a fan shaped shield and I saw the top of it like it was going straight up. Then it went forward and was so thin it disappeared. I hear you… planes don’t do that. But I do live near an air force base. I’m going to look into that some more and see if I can find a picture.”

The exact moment her reply came through, I emailed her two images, with the following message:

I’m imagining the outline of this, including the beak:

and this, minus the legs:

I love that the image comes from a site called:   … The pinterest owl image also originated at “” 

Karen replied: “That’s the mouth!”

To which I replied, “I was just emailing Mike Clelland about this when your message came through ‘That’s the mouth!'”

Our morning continued with interwoven synchronicities. Mike’s in a different timezone, so he hasn’t yet flown into the swirling vortex — at least not by email. 🙂

Here are the images Karen texted me last night as a follow-up to our phone conversation:

She and I went back and forth about how much of her name to include, and she added about the possible UFO event: “What I saw might have been the stealth bomber. But it’s still an anomaly because it’s not stationed here.”

me: “Lots of anomalies these days!”

Karen: “So true.”

I went about the rest of my morning, tending the garden, riding the exercise bike. Then I received another email from her with a subject line “FYI.” She sent it from her iPhone: “Just passed a car the license plate said area 51B.”

me: “LOL, I better write this post soon or it will keep growing!”

June 2022 Specials

As always, I intuit what to offer when, based on dreams, requests, blog comments, emails and themes that arise during scheduled sessions. This month has a new offering, and I hope people take advantage of it.


Personal Preparedness Session

I keep getting emails from quasi-panicked people asking me to provide my take on:

“What’s happening in the world right now?”

“What’s going to happen in the future?”

“How much food do I need on hand?”

“Do I need to pull my money out of big banks?”

“Should I invest in crypto?”

“Do I really need to worry about ____?”

“How do I start a successful garden?”

“Should I relocate?”

“How much cash should I keep on hand?”

“Do I need weapons?”

“How do I magically protect myself and my property?”

“What if there’s another lockdown or the economy crashes?”

“Do you really see a positive way out of these times?”

There are no hard and fast answers to these questions, because they VERY much depend on who you are, how you are, and where you are (your physical location AND your current life circumstances). I don’t provide general answers because general answers do not apply to everyone. Even people who live in the same community can have extremely different experiences.

This new 30-minute special tailors the answers to you and your particular situation and energy. $123 to answer those pesky questions that nag you in the wee hours of the morning. Offer valid if prepaid on or before 6/30/2022. Please contact me to sign up.

Timeline Tune-Up

This 40-minute offering helps identify which areas of your life can most benefit from the energetic openings in the next few months. 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. $144 if prepaid on or before 6/30/2022. (Save $33 off the usual 40-minute rate.) Please contact me to sign up.

This special can be standalone or an add-on to the Personal Preparedness Special.
