Summer Solstice, Astrology and Earth Changes

Happy Summer Solstice to everyone in the Northern Hemisphere! (And Happy Winter Solstice to my readers in the Southern Hemisphere!) May the light of clarity continue to dawn and shine, both inside and outside ourselves. I’ve noticed clarity as a major theme in recent sessions, so I thought I’d make a special post about some upcoming space alignments, along with an update on Uranus in Taurus.

Even if you don’t believe in astrology, the following video shares physical Earth effects of a very rare planetary alignment we’ll experience from July 19th-early September. The lead-up has begun, with all the gas giants already on one side of the Sun. As the creator of this video documents, “June 20, 2018: Over the past 125 years the earth has only been in this cosmic planetary position 6 times, during each of those six times some historic events occurred on the planet with regard to volcanic eruptions and earthquakes. https://www.mrmbb333.com

I include the video not to generate fear but as background to the individual and collective astrological effects/observations I note below the video. As Above, So Below. As Within, So Without. Everything connects. Whether or not we recognize those connections, they still affect us:

On May 9, 2018, I posted “Uranus in Taurus: What I’m Noticing So Far,” because sessions indicated people already feeling the effects of Uranus shifting from Aries to Taurus on May 15th. Things continue to heat up on the collective level and especially for anyone whose natal chart receives exact aspects with Uranus in early Taurus. You are much more than your Sun sign, so even non-Taureans can experience huge lightning (aka “lightening”) strikes from the rebel liberator, cosmic weirdo Uranus. Continue reading

June 2018 Specials, Class, and Radio Show Link

Today is the last day to sign up for May 2018 specials, which you can find here.

I have another radio show this Friday, June 1, at 1:30 p.m. Eastern US time (6:30 p.m. UK, 12:30 Central US, 11:30 a.m. Mountain, 10:30). You can listen from anywhere by clicking here at 1:30 p.m. Eastern. This is the fourth of a set of five sponsored shows. I’m not sure exactly what we’ll cover, but this past week has been so intense for so many clients, friends and family that I’m sure we’ll address some of the current energies and ways to deal with them.

JUNE 2018 SPECIALS

$44 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.

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 June 30, 2018.

40-Minute Soul Reading Special

$133 instead of the usual $177, this 40-Minute Soul Reading Special can address “why you’re here,” deep soul longings, how to bring more soul into the workplace or your relationship, and/or an astrology check-in. Offer valid if prepaid on or before June 30, 2018.

Reminder: Summer Solstice (June 21) Early Pre-Pay Discount for the Fall Equinox Class

The “Living a More Magical Life” workshop I’m co-teaching with my sweet and amazingly creative and talented faery sister Tania Marie is already 1/3 full. You can find class details, as well as registration links here. Class date and time is Saturday, September 22, 2018, from noon to 5 p.m. at Lake Tahoe (Stateline, Nevada, hosted at Tania’s home bordering the Tahoe National Forest). This is a first and last co-teaching event for Tania and me, as Tania will not be teaching anymore classes after this one.

We will tailor this intimate workshop to the day’s participants, sharing varied ways and channels that can assist you in experiencing and creating a more consistently magickal life, as you experience things in greater wholeness of possibilities. In turn, this reveals a more authentic and creative way of living in alignment and manifesting more, as a result. Topics may include the Faerie Realm, crystals, connecting with animals, nature and beyond, and more, which will be revealed as the day unfolds. We’ll conclude with sacred nature immersion, a special joint energy blessing by both Tania and me, and an Equinox ceremony. $222 if prepaid by June 21, 2018; $299 after June 21st. Final registration deadline is September 15th. Only 9 more spots available.

Where Were You in December 1994?

Today’s post comes from a series of recent dreams, along with some surprising follow-up that came through in last week’s intuitive coaching sessions. When exploring this dream information brought forth key moments in clients’ and friends’ lives, I began researching the astrology of late 1994 and found some potent alignments. Since this seems to be part of a larger pattern, I thought I’d share some of the dream and discoveries here.

I have always been a huge dreamer, both awake and asleep. My painted portal doors and “Schizandra and the Gates of Mu” all came through dreams, and dreams have guided my most important decisions since childhood. In fact, my waking life includes so many overt signs, symbols and surreal instant manifesations that it often feels more dreamlike than not. I set an intention before going to sleep one night last week, asking to find the most relevant time period that would answer my question.

I expected to land somewhere in May 1998 around the time of my traumatic brain injury, but the dream went further back to December 1994 — specifically, Christmas Break 1994. I had wisdom tooth surgery from which the doctors could not get me to return from anesthesia. The surgery itself was difficult, too, only removing my left, impacted wisdom teeth instead of the planned all four because those left ones took so much longer than anticipated. When I did not wake up, they called my dad into the room to let him know the next emergency steps. Apparently, I didn’t like the sound of those, because I woke up when they mentioned machines and coma.

Or at least, part of me woke up. Continue reading

Garden Inspiration and Permaculture Projects

Yesterday, David and I enjoyed an afternoon in Grand Rapids, including our second trip to the Frederick Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park. We took my mom there back in December 2017, and this time proved different but equally enchanting.

Even more exciting, walking around all those carefully planned gardens gave me some alternative solutions for our yard and neighborhood, which will be going through major changes in the next couple years due to mandatory sewer and possibly sidewalk installation. We’re fighting pretty unanimously to save as many of our neighborhood’s gorgeous, old trees, but in the event we lose to the Township’s dedication to the “Agendas,” yesterday’s creativity inspired some lovely “lemonade” recipes from the Township’s would-be lemons.

It’s all very Uranus in Taurus: major upheaval on the physical level, concern for “the greater good.” The questions remain: what is the greater good, who gets to determine that, and how? I’ll share some photos from Meijer Gardens first, followed by a few of our yard and some of the “problem is the solution” ideas this visit inspired. Even this entryway at Meijer Gardens may change, as we heard people discussing a major planned shift in where people enter the park.

David included me in the photo for scale:

Some of the sculptures have a grand presentation, while many others play hide and seek within the landscape and winding pathways. This next sculpture is one of my favorites, called “Espaliered Girl.”

We heard so many different languages as we wandered around the Japanese Gardens.

Ann Kreilkamp ~ Tomorrow’s New Moon in Taurus heralds, within hours, two powerful sign changes: Uranus from Aries to Taurus, Mars from Capricorn to Aquarius

Ann Kreilkamp, who happens to be my very inspiring and Uranian astrology mentor, as well as the founder of Green Acres Permaculture Village, gives her take on May 15th’s big shifts.

New Moon in Taurus, Uranus (who rules Aquarius) moving from Aries (who rules Mars) into (Venus ruled) earthy Taurus, and Mars moving from (Saturn ruled) earthy Capricorn into Aquarius. We’ve got several layers of Uranus-Taurus-Mars activity tomorrow, and that’s just the beginning. In addition to possible financial and political ramifications, Ann gets into the potential for Uranus in Taurus to revolutionize how we grow food — a topic close to both of our hearts. Much more here for the astro-curious.

Uranus in Taurus: What I’m Noticing So Far

On May 15, 2018, zany, chaotic, high in the sky, liberating Uranus moves into slow, solid, steady, earthy Taurus. Whenever a slow moving planet changes signs, we can expect some major shifts. Some astrologers are predicting the end of the Taurean Bull financial system with a switch to Uranian Bitcoin. Others are predicting earthquakes, both physical and metaphysical. I’m not a doom and gloomer, but in recent sessions, I’m already noticing the lead up to this shift.

The effects depend upon the person, how “stuck” they are or how open to big, liberating changes. Like the Tower card of Tarot, Uranus can answer desperate prayers for change, but how we experience that change depends on our ability to recognize and embrace the answered prayers.

Tower

One example would be the person who hates his job, who has long wanted out but can’t find the “how,” suddenly getting fired or having an accident that prevents him from doing that job. (I had some heavy duty Uranus transits at the time of my 1998 car accident that caused a life changing TBI.) A more harmonious version of this same dynamic features the person who senses a needed career change and instead of waiting for the “how” to reveal itself, that person follows a “hop, skip and jump” approach — dead reckoning her way forward via synchronicities and awareness.

Loose Ends, Astrology and My NDE

Since I’ve not blogged in over week, this is just a quick post to say I’m not dead, but I almost was. No need for alarm: I’ve had so many near death experiences, near lightning strikes, head injuries, and I spend so much time crossing the veil in both personal and professional life that even my mom commented, “Glad you survived that bad experience. Another chapter in your amazing life. <3”

Been there, done that, Laura Bruno’s had another rebirth. This one was typically uncanny in terms of premonition dreams right before Easter, specifically noting one of my return flights to Kalamazoo from Bethlehem, PA. Continue reading
