April 2019 Specials and a Radio Show

Happy April Fool’s Day! Despite today’s date, these are the real April 2019 specials.

Also, heads up that I’ll be on “A Fireside Chat with Zany Mystic” this coming Saturday, April 6th at 7 p.m. Pacific/10 p.m. Eastern U.S. time. I always enjoy talking with Lance White (aka Zany Mystic). We’re never quite sure what will come up, but likely topics include Black Moon Lilith, faeries, devas, tuning into the Otherworld and other practical/mystical topics. I’ll provide the link and reminder closer to Saturday — just wanted to let you know about the live show.

APRIL 2019 SPECIALS

20-Minute Property or Home Reading

In preparation for spring cleaning and garden season I’m bringing back the 20-Minute Property or Home Reading special. You email me an address and possibly photos of a property you rent, own or are considering purchasing or moving to, and I email you my findings and suggestions. I can focus on the overall energy, things to tweak to support life goals, and/or permaculture suggestions and resources, based on my Permaculture Design Certificate and creation of a 1/3 acre food forest.

This 20-minute email reading covers time spent reading your email, tuning in and typing up my reply. It may also be combined with a Property Clearing/Relocation Booster ($77) based on whatever I glean from the reading. $77 if prepaid on or before April 30, 2019. ($154 total if you’d like both the reading and the clearing. If you’d like 40 minutes, you can also double the email time.) Please contact me to sign up.

$555 Reiki Level 3 Master Teacher Certification Special

Every once in a great while, I feel led to offer this special. I’m taking $95 off the normal rate for in-person or 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 more than 16 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 in-person (in Kalamazoo, MI) or long distance 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 April 30, 2019.

Global Metamorphosis 2019 Update

Another new article from Timothy Glenn! In his email to me, Tim notes, “2020 is going to be Global Metamorphosis on steroids, so there might be more than one update of this series during that year.” Meanwhile, 2019 promises to be quite the wild and revelatory ride. Here’s Tim with some cosmic perspective on human evolution and the New Earth:

Global Metamorphosis 2019 Update

by Timothy Glenn

The Global Metamorphosis articles focus on Pluto’s 16 year journey through Capricorn in the tropical zodiac, emphasizing two of the main facets of this phenomenon:

Removing and replacing structures of the old world control grid in all areas, including (but not limited to) Government, Economy, Academia, Religion and Science.

Bringing to light, facing and dealing with the reality of everything that has been deep, dark, hidden and secret for millenia (thus allowing the old control structures to remain operative).

Ann Kreilkamp ~ Mercury Conjuncts Neptune in Pisces: SO WHAT IS REAL?

Today’s post comes from friend, permaculture village pioneer and astrology mentor, Ann Kreilkamp. I’m sharing it because these themes have often surfaced during this week’s sessions and personal interactions. Combined with other planetary energies, this extra Neptune/Mercury influence can feel spacey and out of it … or it can lead you to expressing big dreams. Are they really so fanciful? Allow yourself some quiet time to journal, paint, and creatively express those dreams.

You might also find new perspectives on older intentions. Have some of your dreams already come true in ways you didn’t recognize before? Here’s Ann with much more:

Ann Kreilkamp ~ Mercury Conjuncts Neptune in Pisces: SO WHAT IS REAL?

On Monday last, when I was preparing a post on the then upcoming Spring Equinox plus Full Moon, I also looked at other configurations in the Equinox and Full Moon charts, paying attention to aspect patterns which were exact or within one degree of exactness. Thus, one of them, Neptune conjunct Mercury, escaped my view, since it was only within two degrees of exactness.

Nevertheless, as I realize now, that aspect was of tremendous importance for especially the next two weeks, since Mercury then at 18°59 Rx, stops, turns and goes forward during this time, all the while remaining within close orb of a conjunction to Neptune.

That I framed my inquiry to just include aspects within 1° of exactness is a good example of how our conceptual frames dictate just what realities we are going to find. We see what we are looking for! Which is why I always say that no map, no matter how precise or immensely framed can adequately cover (and therefore, predict and control) the territory we call “reality,” which itself is infinitely small and large, so that any single infinitesimal point, when focused upon, expands to become an infinite space. 

This way of talking is “Neptunian,” recognizing the inherent mystery that we call (even 3D!) “reality,” and that the religion of science (scientism) foolishly pretends to be able to comprehend. 

Meanwhile, back to the current Mercury/Neptune conjunction. This aspect will continue within 2° of exactness through April 6th. And, the day that it turns to go direct, March 28, it does so at 16°06 Pisces, exactly conjunct Neptune at 16°56 Pisces. In other words, the conjunction is moving closer and closer day by day until March 28, when it turns to equally gradually move out of exact conjunction.

So if you feel as if you’re immersed in the dreamtime, despite your best efforts to ignite springtime Aries action during these weeks, don’t be surprised.  Continue reading

A Taste of Spring: San Antonio and Perfect Timing

Happy Spring Equinox to those in the Northern Hemisphere! (And Happy Fall Equinox to my Southern readers.)

I’ve been meaning to post a recap of our March 7-11, 2019 trip to San Antonio, but between Mercury Retrograde and Uranus moving into Taurus, life keeps redirecting me. Despite “delays,” large and little sync winks confirm the perfect timing of everything. As giant snowflakes fall outside my windows right now, my San Antonio photos will give a much better taste of Spring.

Another sync wink occurred on March 5, just as I finished selecting clothes to pack. For context, on Valentine’s Day, I decided to read The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings —back to back– with no other books or coursework in between. I finished The Hobbit in about a week, but I am still reading LOTR! Depending on the edition, that’s around a 1,200 page book, so this next part seemed significant. Just before David pulled into our driveway on March 5, I reached this part of LOTR on my Kindle:

I read this on the fifth of March, right before a seeming mishap occurred. The astounding sync wink in a 1,200 page book made me laugh and provided immediate perspective that all was in Divine and perfect order. As predicted, the mishap turned out be no big deal, especially for the chaotic energies of that day. This synchronicity set the tone for our entire trip to San Antonio, which went smoothly, despite Mercury Rx, Uranus zippy zaps, and perfect timing “delays.” Continue reading

Timothy Glenn ~ Uranus in Taurus: Illusions Get Shattered

Timothy Glenn commented via email, “Of course volumes could be written about this… .” I agree, but I love his new article — just in time for tomorrow’s shift.

Uranus in Taurus: Illusions Get Shattered

by Timothy Glenn

We had our preview period for Uranus the Liberator transiting the sign of Taurus, from May 15 to November 6, 2018. He then retrograded back into Aries to tie up loose ends. Most earthlings have no clue about the war that has long been raging below the surface of public awareness, but Uranus in Aries forced a few key issues. Certain cabals had their death grip on the world broken.

However, there are many millions of us who not only can sense what is playing out on the world stage, but can recognize the clues and read the codes. The rest of the population will have the opportunity to catch up later.

And now is the time. On March 6, 2019 Uranus enters Taurus to play for keeps. You could batten down the hatches, buckle your seatbelt, or simply let go. The world will not be the same when Uranus begins its triple transit out of Taurus on July 7, 2025.

Uranus in Taurus: An Unexpected Journey

From May 15 – November 6, 2018, we got a glimpse — a preview — of rebel-liberator-techno-cosmic weirdo Uranus moving into slow-steady-Venusian-earthy bull Taurus. Uranus is lightning quick and revolutionary; Taurus is known for stubbornness, beauty and comfort.

In Tolkien terms, “Uranus in Taurus” is the Wizard Gandalf with his lightning fireworks and incomprehensible wisdom “inviting” Bilbo Baggins on an adventure. Although his birthday falls on September 22 (on the cusp of Virgo/Libra), Bilbo reacts like a Taurus facing Uranus. Like most Hobbits, Bilbo loves food, security, and his home in the Shire. Like Uranus, Gandalf disrupts a perfectly ordinary “Good Morning” and offers Bilbo the chance for radical change and growth.

When Bilbo declines that offer, Gandalf brings the party to Bilbo. Literally. As with Uranus, resistance to Gandalf is futile. A band of Dwarves throw Bilbo’s home into chaos, eat all his food stores and drive him so crazy that his inner “Took” heritage starts fighting with the more sensible “Baggins” side. In a shocking twist, Bilbo finds himself a willing and essential participant in the adventure he refused. The rest is Hobbit history and one of the most beloved stories ever told. Of course, good stories involve challenge and change, but they also bring growth. Like Uranus, Gandalf ignites and liberates a dormant part of Bilbo. Life becomes much less predictable, but the changes redefine how Bilbo sees himself and the world.

On Wednesday, March 6, 2019, Uranus moves back into Taurus until July 7, 2025. Continue reading
