Eclipse Season and July 2019 Specials

An eventful July begins with a Total Solar Eclipse on July 2 at 10 degrees Cancer. If you have any personal planets at 10 degrees Cancer or Capricorn, you’ll feel this one in a big way. Ditto for anyone with 10 degrees Libra/Aries, which will be squared (creates friction/action) by the eclipse.

On July 8th, Mercury moves retrograde, conjuncting Mars in fiery Leo, which may increase impulsive action. You might also feel more tension than usual between acting and thinking. On the 9th, Chiron (wounded healer/deep inner wound) goes retrograde at 5 Aries, which will affect anything you have around 5 degrees Aries/Libra/Cancer/Capricorn. We’ve also got upcoming astro-weather involving Mars/Uranus, Venus/Pluto, and the Sun/North Node. You can find a more detailed overview of July 2019’s intense astrology here.

On July 16th, we’ll have a Lunar Eclipse at 24 degrees Capricorn. If that sounds familiar, have a look back at Ann Kreilkamp’s discussion about the upcoming Pluto/Saturn conjunction. Anything between 18- 24 degrees in Capricorn/Cancer/Aries/Libra will get extra-activated by the Lunar Eclipse and the South Node (currently at 18 Capricorn). South Node deals with karma, past lifetimes, old patterns. Because some key public figures have natal placements connected with the eclipses, we’re likely to see some pivotal events on the world stage, too.

JULY 2019 SPECIALS

Realizing the intensity of July for many individuals, along with pressure for a collective karmic shift, this month’s specials offer extra support tailored to these background energies.

40-Minute Astrology Special

$133 instead of the usual $177, this 40-Minute Astrology Special can address “why you’re here,” deep soul longings, how to bring more soul into the workplace or your relationship, and/or how your natal chart and transits may be affecting your health or finances. More importantly, the reading offers clues to maximize your own unique Soul’s process, so that you get the most growth and satisfaction from this carefully selected lifetime. Offer valid if prepaid on or before July 31, 2019. Please contact me to sign up.

Return of the $77 Past Life Quickie

With the veils thinning, so many more people have begun to experience what I call “past life bleed-through.” Dreams, hunches, visions, flashes … however the suspected past life awareness arrives, it can feel unsettling, exciting and/or cause obsessive questions. This half-hour reading allows people to ask persistent questions, or to have a check-in regarding the most pressing karmic issues presenting themselves right now. Yes, this can include past life relationships with animal friends.

I don’t normally offer Past Life Readings in a 20-minute format, but I wanted to make this available to the larger numbers of people wondering about previous lifetimes and relationships. If you’d like to double this special for 40 minutes, just let me know in your scheduling request. Offer valid if prepaid on or before July 31, 2019. Please contact me to sign up.

(It is not meant to replace traditional medical treatment.)

Medical Intuitive sessions purchased today through 2/28/19, will be discounted to $77 per 20-minute check-in, which can also be doubled to save $23 on a 40-minute reading for $154.

This package can be used in whatever increments you choose — hour, 40-minute, half-hour, or 20-minute 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 2/28/19.

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!

Lyme Journal Reviews

I’m grateful for and honored by enthusiastic emails from so many people who have found “Lyme Journal: A Guided Recovery Workbook” both helpful and inspirational. A few highlights include:

“Laura, got the book. Phenomenal. So much heart!”

“I LOVE this book. Seriously. It cannot be solely for Lyme, tho, because it is way too beneficial. It pertains to all mind/body/spirit symptoms. It’s so important!”

“I had time to read through it. It’s AWESOME!! I will share it in my client group and FB page.”
Clients have also shared that “Lyme Journal” helps them feel much more supported between sessions. That warms my heart, because I wrote this guided journal to help people help themselves.
I realize this is a 139-page guided journal, so some people may not have finished it yet, but I have a favor to ask. If you have benefited from this book, I would love an honest review on Amazon. As most blog readers know, I don’t do social media or advertising, and I didn’t do a big “book launch” or marketing blitz for “Lyme Journal.” I keep things sweet and simple with just me, my blog, repeat clients and referrals. I know health issues are very personal, so please don’t feel pressured to leave a review.
If you happen to feel led, though, I would very much appreciate your review. It also helps potential readers decide if a book’s legitimate and likely to resonate with them. Many thanks for your consideration and your support, whether private or public. I have a special place in my heart for people dealing with Lyme disease and similar life-changing health challenges. I wish you peace and empowerment on your healing journey.
Much love,
Laura

Sacred Decorating

Today’s post comes as a follow-up to a post from two years ago: How to Thrive in a Less than Ideal Location. I write now from a place of gratitude, post-relocation and feeling ideally placed, but I thought I’d share additional insights from the new location. So often I hear from clients that they feel misplaced, lonely, sick or stuck, with no sacred space to call their own. If that describes you, then do check out the previous link, too. If, instead, you feel largely well placed but you want to upgrade your surroundings, then today’s post offers suggestions for adding even more sacred experience into your everyday home, office, or little corner.

Why Bother?

“I have more important things to worry about than decorating.”

“It’s too overwhelming. If I start, I’ll never finish.”

“My space looks good enough, but I don’t feel inspired or energized. Why can’t I get things to flow in other areas?”

Decorating might seem superficial, but it’s one of the fastest ways to shift energy in other areas of life. Whether you study feng shui, or just pay attention to colors and shapes that delight your senses, your everyday environment seeps into your subconscious. As your subconscious works nonstop to filter and create your outer experience, changing your external environment alters your internal feelings and perspective. These, in turn, alter how you experience your external reality.

It’s like breathing: in, out, in, out. You live and breathe and move in your everyday experiences. Like polluted air, a space that irritates, annoys or crushes your soul does more damage than it would first appear. On the flip side, a space that calms, uplifts and expands your soul acts like increased oxygen in the body. Most parasites and other nasties can’t stand a well oxygenated environment. As you clean and uplift the areas in which you spend your time, you welcome fresh inspiration, healing and opportunities in life.

Little Things Count — A Lot

In sessions, I always ask people to pay attention to the little things. What small, symbolic step could you take today, which would move you towards your larger goal? Little things add up. They also take less time, energy, focus and determination. In many instances, little things feel like throw-away’s: five minutes to take out the trash, ten minutes to file the pile. A little thing could include changing your screensaver to something that makes you smile. Maybe you move your desk or bed so that a pleasant view greets you instead of one that sinks your spirit.

Lyme Journal: A Guided Recovery Workbook — Now Available

At long last, “Lyme Journal: A Guided Recovery Workbook” is now available! You can purchase the 8 1/2 x 11″ journal/workbook here.

I designed this 139-page workbook based on over 17 years as a Medical Intuitive Life Coach. Since 2004, I’ve focused on supporting clients, friends and family struggling with Chronic Lyme Disease. In addition to my still-in-progress “Metaphysics of Lyme” book, this latest release shares the unusual knowledge I’ve acquired through intuition and supporting amazing souls on their own Lyme journey.

Prompts on each page explore common Lyme issues and foster positive changes, inside and out. This guide works best for people open to a holistic approach to healing. It explores physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual patterns. Whether you write, draw, or collage your answers, this workbook helps you to identify and address hidden aspects of your journey. Since Lyme is “The Great Imitator,” these questions also apply to autoimmune and neurological issues, along with chronic pain, co-infections, adrenal fatigue, thyroid issues, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, MS, toxic mold exposure, and more.

When people shift limiting thought patterns, clear away spiritual dross, and begin to celebrate and cherish their unique gifts, they open space for healing. This journal/workbook is not meant to replace traditional or alternative treatments, but to trigger movements up and out of the vibration of Lyme symptoms. By accessing deep, authentic parts and honoring Lyme as a powerful soul healer/guide, life becomes freer and more magical than ever before. “Lyme Journal: A Guided Recovery Workbook” is available on Amazon.

Thank you to everyone who’s encouraged this project, and special gratitude goes to those beautiful clients who’ve allowed me to walk with them on this sacred journey.

Blessings and Love,

Laura
