Healing Portal: Pisces Sun, Virgo Supermoon, and Chiron

Spiritual Healing and Practical Woo

Monday, February 18 to Tuesday, February 19, 2019 marks the Sun’s shift from Aquarius to Pisces, followed by a Full Supermoon in Virgo. Pisces (ruled by boundless, graceful Neptune) and Virgo (the detail oriented, Mercurial healer of the zodiac) together bring opportunities for spiritual healing of ourselves, each other and our planet. Think Water and Earth, Cups and Pentacles, Emotional/Intuitive realm and the Body/Physical realm. Aim to integrate practicality (Virgo) and emotions (Pisces).

Go with the flow, especially if the flow leads to a sudden urge to dot your i’s and cross your t’s. 

Tuesday’s Full Moon is the fourth in a series of five supermoon’s in a row. Even though we’ve finished the recent eclipse trio, this ongoing supermoon series intensifies the usual emotional wallop of a Full Moon. This month’s zero degree Virgo adds extra oomph for emotional resets and healing –provided you integrate the polarities.

Through the negative lens, nitpicky Virgo seems like a stick in the mud compared to Pisces’ watery idealism. It might feel like “first the ecstasy, then the laundry,” but this tension can bring positive results. Think of the monastic life, rooted in physical labor and baking bread. If you seek the spiritual in mundane details, you’ll find many miracles. Nebulous prayers reveal their answers in lived experience. If you’ve felt confused or adrift, this Virgo Supermoon could bring sudden clarity about your next logical step.

[UPDATE: in typical Pisces/Virgo tension, this original inspired article got slightly hazy on the details. Chiron is not an asteroid but a centaur — really not sure why I typed that or failed to catch it before posting. The Sun/Supermoon discussion covers two days, February 18-19th, 2019, although the effects will last longer. I originally focused on Tuesday, since that’s when the Moon enters Virgo. I’m including this update for clarity, but also as an illustration of that sweeping sense of harmony that can trip over details. That doesn’t negate your inspiration or sense of cosmic beauty. Be gentle with yourself, and remind critical Virgo of its trickster ruler.]

Chiron from Pisces to Aries

For clues on what’s up for healing, look back to April 17-18, 2018, when Chiron last shifted from 29th degree Pisces to 0 degrees Aries. Yes, coinciding with this Virgo Supermoon and the Sun’s shift to Pisces, Wounded Healer Chiron returns to Aries this Tuesday. Chiron spent April 2010-April 2018 in Pisces, giving an eight year stretch of spiritual healing influence. This centaur galloped into Aries from April 18th until September 27th, 2018 when it retrograded to Pisces again.

Chiron represents our deepest wounds and how in healing these wounds we help others heal. Since healing rarely occurs in a linear fashion, it helps to observe cycles and similar aspects:

  • What themes or situations called for healing from April 2010-2018?
  • What did you learn, and what core wounds were influenced by doubt and faith during this period?
  • What healing crisis or need to care for yourself first (Aries) burst onto the scene in April 2018?
  • What relief or insights did you receive in late September 2018?
  • What spiritual wounds or questions arose again?
  • Where are you now?
  • How have you grown?

As Chiron moves from 29th degree Pisces into 0 degrees Aries, what actions will you take to support your own healing? What parts of you need healing before you can forge ahead? The combo of Pisces Sun, Virgo Supermoon, and this Chiron shift provides insight and energy to support deep healing and release. Will you allow yourself to receive the blessings? These are collective energies. How they affect you as an individual depends on your own willingness to embrace the energies, along with aspects to your natal chart. For more insights, look for signs in the 29th or 0 degree range, or we can explore your chart and transits together in a session.

For general inspiration and portal support, I feel led to share the link to Divine Doorway #5: “King of Cups aka Chiron.” I created this door just before Chiron moved from Aquarius to Pisces in April 2010, just flowing with the energies. It’s eerie how much that door opens in 29th degree Chiron, whatever the sign.

Blessings and healing to you and yours!

20, 40 or 60 Minutes?

I keep getting this question several times per day, so I’m going to post the answer here. Many people want to know how to decide between the 20-minute or 40-minute option for a Medical Intuitive Session. Others want to know the difference between a 40- or 60-minute session. Here’s my response:

Most prefer the 40-minute reading for a first session. It depends on how much you like to talk, as well as how complex your issue is.

The 20-minute works well for a relatively simple or recent situation, or if you pretty much know what’s going on but want some extra insights and clarification. If you’ve already had a session with me, then the 20-minute option can work well as a follow-up. It’s also helpful for people who’ve never considered a metaphysical root cause for their symptoms, because it gives you direction and a new place to focus.

The 40-minute option is better if you have multiple, seemingly unrelated conditions, something longer term, any upcoming big life decisions, and/or the things “that always worked before” just aren’t working anymore. If you’d like astrological insights, the longer time allows for exploring past, present and future transits affecting your health. The 40-minute option gives more time for back and forth processing and questions, too.

The full hour option gives the most time for in depth exploration, deeper questions from you, as well as integrating the information from the reading into your life. The hour option works best if you want a combo session of medical intuition, life coaching, astrology, past life/soul reading, your soul’s unique process for healing, and/or how to implement these factors into your healing.

It also depends on your budget and your own preferences. Whichever you choose, we’ll make the most of our time together.

Timothy Glenn ~ 2019: Welcome to the Reset

Today we have a special treat: Timothy Glenn’s 2019 report coming in well before the Chinese New Year! I’ve hyperlinked the earlier articles he references. It’s always fun to look back on how predictions unfolded across linear time.

Personally, I’ve been feeling Saturn in Capricorn in a major way, as Saturn’s been crossing and hovering over my Capricorn North Node. As Tim mentions, even if you don’t have any obvious Capricorn in your chart, you’re still going to feel these energies in at least some area(s) of life. Both 2019 and 2020 feature a whole bevy of potent astrological alignments. Whew! Excellent times for those who’ve diligently done their Shadow Work, and a chance to awaken for those who haven’t yet … Here’s Timothy’s report:

2019: Welcome to the Reset

by Timothy Glenn

Perhaps you feel as though a gigantic hand with its index finger extended has descended from the universe, and has pressed the reset button on Planet Earth. If so, you’re far from being alone.

From the article 2018: Welcome to the Storm:

2017: SHTF (Shit Hits the Fan)
2018: SFOOTF (Shit Flies Out of the Fan)

And now we can add:

2019: SSAO (Shit Splatters All Over)

The external structures of our world are barely beginning their transmogrification. The governmental, economic, academic, religious and scientific systems of the old Matrix will have no place in the New Earth. Useful remnants of them could find a temporary place in the planetary transition, but will diminish into mere traces as the fear-based Matrix fades away, and the love-based New Earth emerges.

January 2019 Specials

Happy New Year! I wish you all good things in 2019. May it be your favorite year yet!

Today’s the last day for the December 2018 Special and Discounted Gift Certificates. If you’d like either or both of those, please contact me by 5 p.m. Eastern US time on December 31st. On January 1, 2019, my business gets a reboot. I’ve got a new business name, different PayPal account, and five new products for release in January, including a guided Lyme recovery journal. I’ll announce changes and cluster those new offerings by theme throughout the month.

For the New Year, I felt led to discount the very popular New Year Tarot Readings and have also had requests to offer the Three for Two Special, a chance for extra support and focus. Details below:

JANUARY 2019 SPECIALS

$44 New Year Tarot Special

Half-hour tarot reading at 20% off the usual rate. Tarot readings offer an energetic check-in, the chance to ask questions about pending decisions or intentions, and represent a fun, yet powerful way to gain perspective on relationships and challenges. They can also be used to offer a snapshots of the coming months and year.

Tarot readings are particularly good for people who don’t know what kinds of questions to ask me; they just want some kind of guidance because they feel unsure of what’s coming or what to focus upon. Tarot also seems to benefit those people who have exceptionally good things coming their way, yet wonder if I might be “padding the reading” or “just saying what they want to hear.” The cards don’t lie. (Neither do I – but the cards seem an even more objective medium for delivering good news.)

Please contact me if you’d like to sign up for this special. Offer valid if prepaid on or before 1/31/19.

Three For Two

So many people have asked me to repeat this special to help them jump start the New Year, so here it is. Three hours for the price of two: save $222. This package can be used in whatever increments you choose — hour, 40-minute, half-hour, or 20-miute sessions — and for whatever services you’d like — Medical Intuition, Life Coaching, Astrology, Relationship Clarity, Soul Readings, or any other related service. $444 if prepaid on or before 1/31/19. Please contact me to sign up.

Opportunity to Reboot

Astrology mentor, permaculturist and friend Ann Kreilkamp just reminded me via email about the unusual lineup this coming Solstice (Winter in the Northern Hemisphere, Summer in the Southern Hemisphere), 12/21/18. “Sol-” “Sun” “-stice” “still” effects last three days, so the Full Moon on 12/22/18 still activates those Solstice energies. I love the numbers, too! “The 1221 meaning is to begin again and to strive forward. It represents your inspirations and initiatives” (more here) . The Full Moon date has a 222 embedded in it, reminding us to keep the faith. Don’t dig up the seeds too soon; just because we can’t see it doesn’t mean they aren’t sprouting in the soil. Soil/Soul … Sol/Soul. This is a deeply soulful and potent time. As Ann put it in this morning’s email:

Solstice with Full Moon 0° Cap/Cancer, can you believe?

Ah yes, and this year’s Winter Solstice with the Full Moon, which happens only every 19 years, on the average. Any zero degrees New or Full Moons on the Solstices or Equinoxes contacts the Aries point (0* Aries), node of brand new beginnings for the entire zodiacal cycle to come, at every level. Re-booting the human hard drive to choose peace, prosperity, and abundance, in cooperation with each other and Nature. Let’s shoot for that. Shoot for the stars.

David and I have already been sensing the reboot energy. This Friday marks two years of marriage for us. Last year at this time, David had recently quit his job in Goshen in order to seek employment in Kalamazoo. Although David’s joking texts with our friend Tim Martin revealed eerie precognition of David’s new career, on Winter Solstice 2017, we had no idea what he’d be doing. We just knew he needed to take that leap of faith.

December 16, 2017 brought the shocking, traumatic, and in retrospect, perfectly timed passing of the same friend Tim. We learned about it on 12/17/17 when Tim’s ex-wife and daughter managed to get his cell phone to call me. I posted a tribute to Tim and have referenced him on occasion. He remains “active,” still a dear and helpful friend across the veil.

Yesterday brought some synchronous repetition of memorable things I did on 12/17/17. I always find it fascinating when life cycles in obvious ways. By comparison/contrast, it provides undeniable evidence of growth and change. Instead of shock and grief, yesterday, David and I experienced multiple periods of extreme gratitude and satisfaction. This included David’s career for which he began interviews last Winter Solstice. The past twelve months brought so much healing and internal change to me. When I compare who I am now with who I was a year ago, I feel grounded, secure, clear and grateful in exponentially deeper ways.

This year, we have some quiet celebrations planned, as the cosmic alignments mirror our own feeling of reset. David tells me his word for 2019 is “Cruise,” as in “we’ve hit cruising altitude after a long ascent.” Mine is “Thrive.” In these last days of 2018, and during this powerful 0° Full Moon Solstice, I wish you clarity, peace and joy. The Wheel of the Year reminds us that all things change. Just like the Seasons of the Earth, there is life in death, and death in life. At this still point of the Sun … Peace.

Roots and Writing Updates

I mentioned in February’s “Reclaiming Roots and a Writing Update” that my word for 2018 was “Roots,” and my focus was writing a book with a working title, The Metaphysics of Lyme. By “roots,” I meant both Root Chakra and exploring my Celtic roots/family heritage in much deeper ways. With just over two weeks left of 2018, it seems like a good time to take stock. How did I do?

Integrating the North Node: Personal, Work and Writing Updates

For years, I’ve found that when a client embraces his or her natal North Node of the Moon, it opens portals where concrete walls once blocked the way. Your South Node represents where you came from — in previous lifetimes and early this life. Your North Node points to your soul’s idea of purpose and success. Like magic, leaning into North Node qualities beckons positive synchronicities, flow, and opportunities. Think “best of the past” with a new, soul-approved, focus and direction. This works in health and other areas of life, so I often explore the North Node in seemingly “unrelated” types of sessions.

Having recognized this power for my clients, I’ve spent the past few years working hard to integrate my own Capricorn North Node, but not without some challenges. Read “big challenges” that involve strongly competing desires, goals, and aspects. As with clients, I knew I needed to find ways to honor that North Node while also recognizing my own quirks and ways of summoning energy. I decided to share some of my process, because it illustrates how we can take a complex chart (or competing desires) and embrace instead of run from it. When we know what and whom we’re dealing with, we can make deals that honor all involved. Even if all those aspects exist inside ourselves!

Our natal chart presents a blueprint, but how we build and decorate our lives remains up to us. As with feng shui, learning how to flow with energies and challenges of the birth design makes a huge difference in how we experience our lives: Continue reading
