Future’s So Bright …

I planned to share this on Monday, but in many ways, this giggle fest post illustrates the positive, magical and more joyful aspects of Timothy Glenn’s “Smoking Hopium” post. The following events occurred on Valentine’s Day morning. David manifested the afternoon off, and I scheduled off the morning, too, as a personal day.

In my effort to embrace more of my Capricorn North Node and the December 19, 2017 move of taskmaster Saturn into its home sign of Capricorn, I ordered a goals workbook/2018 planner in addition to my astrological and moon cycle planner. This is not just any goals workbook, though! Continue reading

Timothy Glenn ~ Smoking Hopium

Today we have an excellent post from my long time friend, the astrologer, numerologist and author, Timothy Glenn. On the surface, this article seems to address both Left and Right political Hopium; however, the takeaway message goes much deeper than politics. Like me, Tim supports inner empowerment and creativity. Good things are happening in the external world — yes, even in politics, unless, for some reason, you like human trafficking and pedophilia, which I really hope you don’t!

Yet we have far more influence tending our own gardens, both literal and metaphorical. Beyond the prevailing bad news and false hope exists another, magical paradigm that responds to us in real time and with tangible, verifiable results.

I know so many people living from this inner space, and contrary to doom ‘n’ gloom or empty platitudes, these people keep manifesting dreams come true. As Within, So Without. Carl Jung said, “One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light but by making the darkness conscious.” Once we do, though, we can actively “become the change we wish to see in the world.” The Hopi prophecies remind us: “This could be a good time.” Indeed, it is a good time … whenever we align ourselves and make it so. Here’s Tim:

Smoking Hopium

By Timothy Glenn

Proterrian describes hope as “a wimpy substitute for faith.” When people have been beaten down by life, to the point that their faith has been shattered, hope is all they have left. Faith reaches assuredly for the next handhold or foothold, even if unseen. But when hope is the only show in town, it grasps at straws in the wind, like a last gasp of desperation. The best thing that can be said for hope is that it’s better than nothing, because at least it hasn’t chosen total self destruction.

If your faith ever gets reduced to mere hope, it will help if you Continue reading

Happy Love Day + Eclipse Energy Info

Just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Love Day, however you celebrate the force of Love in your life. Below these beauties, you’ll find information on tomorrow’s eclipse. My natal chart features an Aquarius Moon, so I’ve already been feeling this energy. I know some people prefer to ignore the Moon, but given tides and our own water content, I still find it valuable to know what the energies support. Go with the flow and all that. 😉 Please use your own intuition and discernment, and feel the Love …

Reclaiming Roots and a Writing Update

It appears my 2018 word is “Roots.” I’ve been embracing my Celtic roots in ever deeper ways, describing “root issues” as I write a book on the metaphysics of Lyme disease, and on the physical level, I’m preparing for a (root chakra) colon cleanse. During this Imbolc season of release in preparation for Spring’s creativity, I’ve gone deep into my soul soil, planting seeds and watching others sprout. I’ve traced the mycelium and traveled the paths of telepathy and dynamic interconnection.

Learning Welsh

A few weeks ago, I mentioned feeling led to learn Welsh, and indeed, that project continues. In addition to being the language upon which Tolkien based Elvish, Cymraeg (pronounced kum-R EYE G), aka Welsh has opened my mind and soul in unexpected ways. For one, I can finally pronounce most of the names in the Mabinogian — a set of tales that includes early Arthurian legends, along with some of the weirdest myths and magic you’ll ever encounter.

Timothy Glenn ~ 2018: Welcome to the Storm

Today’s post comes from my “tell-it-like-it-is” friend, the beloved Timothy Glenn. In retrospect, you’ll find his pre-Eclipse article from August 2017 eerily prophetic. I have a few notes before his article begins. Since people always ask me for my own take on Tim’s information, I’ll share my comments here.
I very much agree with Tim’s observations about the Opt-Out Clause. I was just saying, “People are dropping like flies these days — young ones, too.” In addition to our dear friend Tim Martin who passed right before Saturn went into Capricorn, I’ve supported so many people and animals as they crossed over these past few months, and/or helped their remaining loved ones process the changes.
I do want to mention that in addition to those opting out, with the fertility work I do, I also see so many amazing souls opting in. The huge hearts, creativity and determination of the souls coming in right now, as well as those who’ve incarnated in the past few years, give me tremendous hope and inspiration for humanity and our planet. Please don’t read this post as a doom and gloom post! As Anatole France said, “All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy, for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter into another.” The old world is dying, but I know so many people embracing the new world in astonishing and beautiful ways.

Happy New Year + Context for This 2018 Shift

David and I are still busy here hosting my mom and contemplating our own pivotal 2017, with continued major shifts into 2018. Last New Year’s Eve, David and I drove to Kalamazoo from Goshen, IN for a mini-honeymoon at the Radisson, enjoying Kalamazoo’s First Night Celebration. I posted about our experiences here.

What I did not share was how we had reserved our 2016 holiday letter for mailing from the post office in Kalamazoo last New Year’s Eve. We did so with the strong, full intention that we would be living here next (this) year at this time. We felt magic in that symbolic action, and every time we pass that post office, we celebrate the results.

Here we are, and what a whirlwind year it’s been! We have so much gratitude and awe for how everything transpired, and the volume of physical work it took to make it so. For us, 2017 was very much about bringing ideas into tangible actions, step by step into the new. We expect 2018 to continue that trend but in a more expansive and even more grounded and disciplined way.

I don’t have time today to write a long post about the coming energies, but for those wanting more context, I’ll include the following links (and sometimes links within links). I do want to note three significant factors: Continue reading

Ann Kreilkamp ~ “Saturn to enter Capricorn on December 19, 2017 — slow down! Serious business ahead!”

Huge thanks to fellow permaculture friend and blogger Ann Kreilkamp for this excellent write-up. I read energies and come to similar conclusions via different means, so it’s always helpful and confirming to see it all explained from an astrological angle. If you’ve been feeling or noticing an increased sense of immediate “karmic consequences” for yourself or others living out of alignment, or if you feel like life’s “putting the squeeze” on you (and/or the US and its sick underbelly), read on for context and strategies:

Saturn to enter Capricorn on December 19, 2017 — slow down! Serious business ahead!

By Ann Kreilkamp

Saturn moves through one sign in about two and a half years. This will be its first transit through Capricorn since 1988-1990. If you recall, those are the years that surrounded the fall of the Berlin wall, on November 9, 1989. One of the keywords for Saturn is “wall.” Plus, that wall was up for 30 years, one Saturn cycle!

Back then, not only Saturn, but electric Uranus and oceanic Neptune were also transiting through Capricorn, moving in and out of conjunction during part of that time, and not leaving until 1995.

The millennial generation, born during those years, is tasked, on an unconscious level, with dissolving (Neptune), breaking down (Uranus) and reconfiguring (Saturn) forms — of both our own bodies and the institutions of society. For Capricorn is a sign that rules form, structure, rules, roles, regulations. It sets the philosophies and ideologies of Sagittarius (where Saturn transits just prior to Capricorn) in place, gathering, holding, and stabilizing energetic flows through its forms and channels.

This time around, since early 2015 during which Saturn Continue reading
