Full Moon in Aries ~ October 9, 2022

My October 2022 Forecast shares:

October 9 Full Moon in Aries, 4:55 p.m. Eastern US time. The Full Moon conjuncts Chiron, alerting us to a need for healing. The Sabian Symbol for this “Blood Moon” is: (ARIES 17°): TWO DIGNIFIED SPINSTERS SITTING IN SILENCE. The symbol encourages us to pull inside ourselves, yet paradoxically to do so together. We must tend to our own inner landscape, but group meditations and prayer bring powerful results. Consider sitting in silence with one or more people, and holding an intention for love and healing. Nature and animal friends count, too! If you don’t have a person to meditate with, expand your idea of solidarity. Heads up: this Full Moon conjuncts the start-of-Watergate Chiron and sits between the US natal Chiron and transiting Chiron. An extremely challenging and painful time for the United States.

The Full Moon also occurs in context of Pluto stationing direct in Capricorn, as noted in that same October 2022 Forecast:

October 8 Pluto stations direct in Capricorn. After a deep dive since April 29, Lord of the Underworld prepares to resurface. All those hidden things you thought would never see the light of day? Pluto drags ’em up when he’s good and ready. Nobody pushes Pluto around. Resistance is futile. Try to suppress that force, and you’ll find death, destruction and devastation like you never imagined. Work with Pluto, and he brings healing, rebirth and regeneration beyond your wildest dreams. Ignore him at your peril. If you’ve ever wanted to clean house, do so now. You have support.

Mercury in Virgo trines Pluto and supports revelations from the deep. With asteroid Psyche conjunct the Libra Sun point, we can expect light to shine on our own subconscious and soul longings. We may feel a profound connection to others at this time, or we might find relationships support us in dealing with a Shadow brought to light.

In addition to Psyche, the Sun point also conjuncts asteroid Burney, which emphasizes “analogy between a very personal approach and its link at the collective level.” As Within, So Without. Even more so than usual, our own personal process influences the collective. Venus is just a little behind Burney, bringing love, grace, beauty and self-esteem into the mix. How do our personal values influence cultural values?

Any Full or New Moon on the Aries/Libra axis forces us to negotiate between individual will and a need for harmony with others. The Sabian Symbol of TWO DIGNIFIED SPINSTERS SITTING IN SILENCE evokes a partnership of crones. The old, wise women who’ve never married join together with an unspoken goal. Perhaps the Full Moon will reveal and clarify deep, subconscious, psychic forces influencing goals beyond our mental comprehension. Aries is the sign of war. Let’s remember to deal with our own Shadow, so that we can bring more love into the equation.

Behind all these aspects, the Saturn-Square-Uranus energy continues to run. 2021 featured three exact squares, and early October gives a final square by degree. Although the exactitude wanes, this friction colors all of October, including the Full Moon in Aries. My October 2022 Forecast shared:

October 3-6 Saturn in Aquarius square Uranus in Taurus. Although this square goes exact by degree and not to the minute, we will feel it! Saturn-Square-Uranus energy colored all of 2021 with its controversial mandates and protests. Questions of top down authority vs. individual rights re-surge. Food scarcity vs. food sovereignty, electricity, Big Tech, financial systems, transhumanism, and censorship also rise as key topics. Frustration peaks. So do demands for creative solutions. In order to benefit from this friction, look for nuances, irony and opportunity. You cannot comply yourself out of tyranny, but revolution with no plan breeds anarchy, which then breeds another form of tyranny. Aim for evolution, beyond mere revolution.

Pay attention to insights that arise around October 9, 2022. The idea of “As Within, So Without” reminds us that finding a new balance between our personal needs and our relationships can and does affect the collective experience. No, we can’t directly control the macro, but yes, we are each a microcosm of the whole. This is one of the most powerful Full Moons for shared prayer and group meditations. Beyond the chaos exists a beautiful, healed, and peaceful New Earth. We can find this frequency deep within ourselves and in solidarity with others who tap into that energy.

Viva la love-o-lution!

Approaching Go Time?

In my Precognitive Blues, Part 3 post, I shared the following:

A Recent Tarot Dream

On October 2, 2019, I had a potent dream. I stood in a pool at twilight chatting with my friend’s teenage son, Sol. (It seemed more symbolic with the name — Sol, aka “Sun” — rather than the person.) We could overhear my aunt and sister discussing the special mandala shaped patio and walkway under their feet. It featured a center circle at slightly lower elevation than the surrounding circles, which all tilted towards the center circle. My aunt told my sister, this setup would “ensure everyone and everything winds up in the right place at the right time in the event of an earthquake.”

At that point, something in me snapped, and I shouted at the dream itself, “What is the significance of ____?” I listed options, making sure to cover all bases except the one I suspected it might be. All of a sudden, the dream turned into a giant Tarot card! I won’t say which card or my question, because those details are private … and also because I want to make a more universal point about Tarot card dreams.

In any case, the dream went from a pool at twilight with Sol/Sun, overhearing a discussion about cracking foundations, safe mandala patios and sorting people and things in the event of an earthquake … then to my question/demand … and then to a giant cartoon Tarot card. I mentioned before that Tarot cards carry multiple meanings. In my dream, this card added and subtracted details to leave only one possible interpretation. Just in case I tried to miss the point — and yes, in the dream I tried to miss it — the card sparkled and flashed its modified details like a cornball cartoon. Subtle it was not.

An amused voice-over asked, “Any questions?”

Stunned, I found myself back in the swimming pool at twilight, talking to Sol and overhearing the exact same conversation about the mandala patio/walkway/foundation built to ensure everyone and everything winds up where they need to be in the event of an earthquake.

I had this powerful Tarot dream the day Pluto turned from retrograde to direct at 20 Capricorn — a significant position in my life for a variety of reasons. At the time of the dream, I didn’t realize Pluto’s shift, but the dream involved such obvious Plutonian themes that my jaw dropped when I looked up the transits. I wanted to discount the dream, but the astrology forced my left brain into compliance. I began composing a “hypothetical” email to my astrology mentor, Ann Kreilkamp and then laughed at myself. The flashing one-interpretation-only Tarot card gave my right brain no place to run. Pretending I didn’t get the message after seeing the astrology embarrassed me enough to stop composing the email.

You asked, Laura. You demanded an answer. We suggest you deal with it.

I’m still doing my Gemini Houdini negotiations with that dream whammy. For all we want to know, part of us may not really want to know what we already know. That dilemma arises in precognitive and “normal” people, if there’s actually a difference. At some point, we know what we know, whether that information comes in a vision, in a dream, by hypnotherapy, psychic reading, or through careful research and observation. Precognitive Blues, Part 1 and Part 2 explore gradations and complications of seeming foreknowledge. Clairaudience, Clairvoyance, Clairsentience, and Claircognizance explores ways that foreknowledge reveals itself.

Fast forward to September 11, 2022, the 21st anniversary of 9/11. I know I’m not the only one to notice this, because I keep hearing from friends and clients that they also felt a significant shift on September 8. For a friend and myself, the sense of this shift preceded the announcement of Queen Elizabeth’s death, but coincided with the supposed time of her death. My Full Moon in Pisces post noted:

September 10 Full Moon in Pisces, 5:59 a.m. Eastern US time. This Full Moon loosely conjuncts Neptune in Pisces, bringing extra empathy and intuition to an already highly charged day. The Sabian Symbol for this Full Moon is “IN A GIGANTIC TENT, VILLAGERS WITNESS A SPECTACULAR PERFORMANCE.” Whether religious, political or some form of “bread and circuses,” Neptune’s presence adds massive Glamour to the leader of this spectacle. It will be easy to get carried away by sweeping emotions and inspiration. Something about this Full Moon dazzles the public in dramatic ways.

I almost wrote but deleted, “Will that spectacle be a huge state funeral?” With all the memorials, 10 days of mourning, etc., I can’t imagine a more “spectacular performance” than the lead up to Queen E2’s funeral, the event itself and King Charles III’s coronation ceremony.

I was not surprised by the death announcement since I had a dream on August 28 from which I awoke hearing young children singing, “London Bridge is falling down, falling down. London Bridge is falling down, my fair lady!” This dream followed an extreme kundalini experience while watching the movie “London Has Fallen.” As I continued to have what I call kundalini shakes while watching the film, I kept saying to David, “I hope this doesn’t mean something like this is going to happen. I haven’t had these shakes since right before 9/11.” After the Queen died, I learned that the code for her death is “London Bridge has fallen,” and the name for the protocol for transition of power to Charles is called “Operation London Bridge.”

But back to my October 2, 2019 dream about the special mandala floors to ensure everyone and everything winds up in the right place at the right time in the event of an earthquake. Over the years, I keep returning to this metaphor, and I’ve shared it with MANY clients. There seems to be some kind of reality overlay that will shift like a Rubik’s cube and click everyone and everything into place. Others and I have tracked massive synchronicities, dreams and external events, which seem to validate a separate timeline — whether we call that a New Earth, an alternate reality, or Ascension.

In the past few days, the movement of mandala floors showed up in a literal way in my 3D life. This coincided with a bizarre sighting of a hot air balloon, synchronicities around the Moon, as well as earthquakes (seen on a movie, but there’s also an uptick in 3D life). After a Friday session for a colleague, I shared details of a tight Celtic knot of dreams and synchronicities involving the shifting mandala floors and the hot air balloon. She told me that she has had numerous dreams and synchronicities involving hot air balloons as connected to “this time we’re in, go time.” Her most recent hot air balloon synchronicity occurred around the same time as I saw the hot air balloon on the previous day.

But wait! There’s more … this morning, I received an email from the person whose portal matches the card from my October 2, 2019 dream. Her email had the subject line, “Moving Mandalas!” We went back and forth on various synchronicities, only to discover that she used to crew hot air balloons and uses that terminology to describe different types of lift off. She also sent me an image of an owl in the center of a squaring the circle mandala.

I’m barely scratching the surface of dreams, synchronicities and validating 3D world events. I can’t say for certain what’s coming, but it feels like we have entered the next phase of a long, slow and careful process. Remember, my September 2022 Forecast says about the New Moon later this month:

September 25 New Moon in Libra 5:55 p.m. Eastern US time. Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, begins at Sundown. The Sabian Symbol for this New Moon indicates powerful shifts: (LIBRA 3°): THE DAWN OF A NEW DAY REVEALS EVERYTHING CHANGED. This degree also opposes Jupiter in Aries. Jupiter enlarges everything, so whatever revelations come, they’ll be big. Mercury and Venus conjunct in Virgo, bringing love and grace to the message. Saturn in Aquarius trines Mars in Gemini and squares Uranus in Taurus. The Saturn-Mars trine supports responsible action, but the Saturn-Uranus square demands bolder, revolutionary moves. This New Moon sets the stage for an October Surprise when that square goes within minutes of exact.

We shall see what unfolds, but the sky and Sabian Symbols seem to confirm big shifts below. I’ve noticed that the Moon cycle unfolds from one Full Moon to the next Full Moon, from New Moon to the next New Moon, so this doesn’t necessarily mean everything will look totally different on September 25. But it might!

I’ve tracked this time period for years due to dreams and synchronicities. I posted the Two of Cups portal on Fall Equinox 2020, and Fall Equinox 2019 was also filled with highly charged time slipping events. This 2022 time of equal day and equal night feels like a cosmic hinge point, especially with the powerful New Moon symbolism on the 25th.

For me, this feels extra powerful. On the September 22, 2022 Equinox, my progressed Scorpio Moon shifts into Sagittarius. My progressed Moon entered Scorpio on March 27, 2020 and remains in Pluto’s lair until Fall Equinox 2022. The New Moon on the 25th conjuncts my natal Pluto (death/rebirth/regeneration) and activates my natal Sun-Moon-Pluto Grand Trine, right after my progressed Scorpio Moon (ruled by Pluto) moves from the shadowy Underworld to a bright and bold Sagittarius adventure. How will this play out? No idea, but my progressed Moon has uncannily tracked with the worldwide COVID drama.

My October 2022 Forecast (not published yet as of this post) shares:

October 8 Pluto stations direct in Capricorn. After a deep dive since April 29, Lord of the Underworld prepares to resurface. All those hidden things you thought would never see the light of day? Pluto drags ’em up when he’s good and ready. Nobody pushes Pluto around. Resistance is futile. Try to suppress that force, and you’ll find death, destruction and devastation like you never imagined. Work with Pluto, and he brings healing, rebirth and regeneration beyond your wildest dreams. Ignore him at your peril. If you’ve ever wanted to clean house, do so now. You have support.

Does my October 2, 2019 Pluto stationing direct dream connect to this October 8 Pluto stationing direct? I don’t know. Maybe. It feels connected, but time will tell.

Today’s post won’t make sense to everyone, and that’s OK. I share this because in sessions I find that many intuitive people receive similar dream symbols, messages and synchronicities. Perhaps you are, too. If so, you’re not alone. For whatever it’s worth, I’ve been shown some great challenges for humanity, but also that vibration makes a huge difference of how the challenges will affect individuals. None of us will remain untouched, but it is possible to experience the rebirth and regeneration — sooner and more profoundly — after the metaphorical or literal death and destruction.

Above all, this is a time for prayer, discernment, gentle nurturing, patient waiting — and bold moves if and when we get the signal for “go time.” It’s approaching. I don’t know exactly when or how, but those special mandala floors are on the move!

Karen’s Dream of Owl and Me

Today’s post is, in some ways, a continuation of my Sleeping Bear Dunes and Birthday Owls post. I’ll begin with my dream journal recap of Karen’s dream. She has graciously allowed me to use her name here. You’ve already encountered her in the Two of Cups Equinox Portal post and the Queen of Wands Imbolc Portal post. If you’ve read those posts, you’ve gotten a peak into her journey, and you can see the synchronicities and joy begin to unfold in magical ways.

Fast forward to today’s dream journal recap:

6/3/2022

“Karen’s Dream of Owl and Me”

Yesterday afternoon, client Karen (whose North Node conjuncts my Venus) told me she keeps forgetting to tell me about a dream she had. She rarely recalls her dreams, and to her knowledge has never dreamed about me. In her dream, she and I stood looking at an owl. When the owl opened its beak and mouth wide, I pointed to it and said, “Look, it makes a perfect ‘o’.” 

She tried to describe the symbol to me, because it was really an ‘o’ with points. I asked her to draw it and she sent me a drawing, then a photo of a Kentucky agate portal with “the right swoop if you make the sides a bit rounded.” She has her little witch/Queen of Wands portal I painted her now walking towards that portal. (It’s a slice of the Kentucky agate, and you can slightly see through it.)

I texted back, “Very cool to all of this! Especially the portal. I will have to ponder your dream. Thank you for sharing it. So basically, I pointed to the owl and said it was making a perfect O? Was it a baby owl?”

She replied, “It was not a baby owl. We were looking at an owl and it opened its mouth wide, and you made that comment. Now I’m not sure if there was any interaction or if we were just observing it. 

“Now [I’m] doubting myself because it wasn’t an o as in round, but it [m]ust have been a perfect symbol. Maybe some Rune that sounds like oh?”

I told her I would ponder this because nothing jumped out at me. Awoke around 3:55 a.m. just before David’s alarm went off. I realized, “It’s a UFO. Turn the owl mouth 90 degrees and it’s a flying saucer shaped UFO. An owl with open mouth gives a message about UFO’s.”

I emailed Karen so as not to wake her up: “Turn the dream symbol on its side and it’s a UFO flying saucer. This connection is central to Mike Clelland’s research, including the book I am in.” Then I included owl and alien emojis. I’m supposed to post about this. She has also been to Suttons Bay and the owl store. Apparently, there’s a spot where people hike down and often can’t get back. Not sure what she meant since this was the end of our session.

Fell back asleep, and I got more downloads for my July 2022 Forecast. The precision of highly charged astrology transits hitting the US in July is insane. No wonder I have such a feeling of massive shift. From start to finish — it’s not just the Mars-Uranus-North Node conjunction. That’s like the fireworks finale to a month of fireworks — literal and figurative.

END of dream journal.

After writing up the dream, I asked Karen: “Can I post about this without using your name, and if so, may I include the photos and your texted description of the dream? If not, no worries on either account. I just got the sense I was supposed to document this on my blog for some reason.”

She replied: “Sure. You can do anything you want. I don’t even care if you mention my name if you feel led to. And very cool connection you made which reminded me that I saw either a really futuristic plane or a UFO last week. It was black and looked sort of like a fan shaped shield and I saw the top of it like it was going straight up. Then it went forward and was so thin it disappeared. I hear you… planes don’t do that. But I do live near an air force base. I’m going to look into that some more and see if I can find a picture.”

The exact moment her reply came through, I emailed her two images, with the following message:

I’m imagining the outline of this, including the beak:

and this, minus the legs:

I love that the image comes from a site called: https://www.dreamstime.com/royalty-free-stock-photo-silver-metal-flying-saucer-ufo-harsh-white-desert-planet-landscape-landed-image35526575   … The pinterest owl image also originated at “dreamstime.com” 

Karen replied: “That’s the mouth!”

To which I replied, “I was just emailing Mike Clelland about this when your message came through ‘That’s the mouth!'”

Our morning continued with interwoven synchronicities. Mike’s in a different timezone, so he hasn’t yet flown into the swirling vortex — at least not by email. 🙂

Here are the images Karen texted me last night as a follow-up to our phone conversation:

She and I went back and forth about how much of her name to include, and she added about the possible UFO event: “What I saw might have been the stealth bomber. But it’s still an anomaly because it’s not stationed here.”

me: “Lots of anomalies these days!”

Karen: “So true.”

I went about the rest of my morning, tending the garden, riding the exercise bike. Then I received another email from her with a subject line “FYI.” She sent it from her iPhone: “Just passed a car the license plate said area 51B.”

me: “LOL, I better write this post soon or it will keep growing!”

Real Life Jumpsuit Tower Jailbreak

I wrote this up for myself on Monday, after finishing the poem that began from three email subject lines on Easter Sunday. I had not planned to share this in a public way, but a client/friend/colleague emailed to share recent breakthroughs and that my San Quentin jailbreak dream had triggered her own powerful dream. She finished her message by saying, “[N]ow you can add “Mystical Quantum Dream Spawner” to your CV,😊

I told her I wasn’t surprised she had such big breakthroughs and then said:

Too cool about the San Quentin dream spawning another one for you. I feel like I liberated my creative writing self from that tower. Yesterday was WILD with synchronicities and the poem I posted today just poured out of me. I had several revisions, but all in all, it was a very quick effort. I haven’t written a poem since maybe 2017?! And before that it was 2009. There was a time when I wrote lots of poetry. 

BTW, I found the jumpsuit on Free People’s website — and ordered it — right before the initial poem lines arrived yesterday afternoon. I haven’t decided if I’ll write that up as its own post. It’s pretty funny. I realized I was dressed as Rosie the Riveter: “We can do it!” 

Then all these things unlocked.

LOL!!!

❤️ 

Laura

Her response convinced me to share the story in a more detailed way. It all happened as described, but much of it unfolds like a dream. (If you haven’t read the San Quentin dream or the follow-up, it won’t make any sense at all. One other note, per dream instructions earlier in the week, I did a three-day colon cleanse from Good Friday through Easter Sunday.) Here’s what I wrote for myself:

Before my TBI I was told to “quit my job, do spiritual work, become a landscaper and write poetry.” Perhaps I’m re-entering the poetry phase.

I now wonder if my Jailbreak dream was about freeing my creative writing self. I had a weird series of events right before I saw the three back to back emails. I got dressed in my “Rosie the Riveter” inspired jumpsuit and looked up a photo of that icon just to see if I was imagining things. It usually says, “We can do it!” but for some reason, I read it as “You can do it!” The only reason I wore the jumpsuit is because I thought I might try to find and order “the right Free People jumpsuit” that freed the woman imprisoned in the tower at San Quentin.

Before ordering a Free People jumpsuit, I thought I’d wear this cheaper one I already owned, just to make sure I liked the feel and look of it. I did, so I started scrolling through the Free People website and found a jumpsuit that seemed similar to the one in my dream. I then received notification that a different Free People package had been delivered. I had just gone outside to deal with recycling and spray deer repellent on my tulips, so I knew the package had only JUST arrived. When I picked it off the mat, the package was empty!

I didn’t expect anyone to be working at Free People on Easter Sunday, but I wanted to document this situation so they wouldn’t think someone just stole it while we were away for the weekend. It looked like the bag had not sealed properly in the first place, not like someone cut into the package. I tried to do an online chat and nothing worked. Then I noticed the fact that they supposedly man their phones 24 hours per day. I thought, “It’s a long shot, but maybe they have a few people working on Easter.” I called and got through pretty fast.

I expected an argument, so I had photos of the improperly sealed, empty package, but I didn’t need them. The woman noted that it had only JUST been delivered, and she took me at my word. She arranged to send out a new item, which shipped last night. What’s especially odd is that the item that slipped out of the package was a SAFARI VEST! I guess it went on its own, uncharted journey. Somehow, this seems significant, like it symbolizes my own detour from creative writing.

I just find it wild that I ordered a Free People jumpsuit that freed the woman in my Easter Sunday dream, and then I immediately got triggered to write the first poem I’ve done in years. I used to write a lot of poetry, but I’ve written maybe one poem (in 2017 or 2018 and I can’t find it) since I finished Schizandra and the Gates of Mu in July 2009. In addition to the poem arising, I feel like I made a huge breakthrough on [another novel] plot, which screeched to a halt when Tim died in December 2017. This cleanse has been really minor on the physical level, but it appears to be removing writer’s block.

____________

That’s the extended story. I don’t know why my dreams so often foresee clothing items or accessories that later show up in real life. Clothing is a powerful metaphor, though: identity, self-expression, creativity. Accessories, glasses — these also suggest other things. In part, I share these stories as demonstrations of how fluid reality becomes when we engage it in a playful, creative way.

I haven’t felt creatively blocked. I’ve painted lots of portals, designed a full permaculture haven, redecorated several homes, wrote guided journals and a LOT of blog posts. My intuitive and astrology readings are also highly creative acts. Yet my creative writing –in particular — has felt like it took a long detour.

In retrospect, I can see why. I’ve written several novels worth of material in the past four years. (Way beyond anything I’ve shared on this blog.) I needed to purge my own stories and bizarre details in order to do creative writing from a place that allows for full expression. No need to get hung up on what did or did not “really” happen. Having fully engaged my own life history and material, I won’t need to explore that through fiction and poetry. I can write what I’m meant to write, unclouded by a need to understand it through my own personal lens.

The creative process is non-linear. It varies from person to person, but some things coincide. I share my own unfolding to inspire others to relax but stick with it. To quote my Dream Guys: “In perfect love and perfect trust, perfect timing is a must.”

A Potent Dream: “My Brother, the Artist”

This feels like a collective dream — like “my brother” represents much of humanity right now. Immediately after writing down the dream, I logged onto my blog and wrote the March 2, 2022 ~ New Moon in Pisces post. Since the dream feels related to today’s New Moon, I’ll share it here on the actual New Moon day. I’ve left this unedited, so please excuse the transcribed dream dialog, where I drop the f-bomb. The dream feels cinematic and potent. I didn’t want to diminish its power by altering the words. If this offends you, please feel free to skip this post. 🙂

2/27/2022

2:57 a.m.

“My Brother, the Artist”

Awoke from a dream that seems important enough to get up and write it down. I was one of several children — three or four — of a larger than life mother who seemed to work in the fashion industry.

We were all grown children, but maybe just in our 20’s and early 30’s. The mom was a little like Maye Musk (Elon Musk’s mom), but not quite her. She was pushy. There was some kind of convention going on in what seemed like a really high end department store — maybe Neiman Marcus, or maybe it was an actual convention. There’s more to this part that I don’t quite recall.

The woman/mom had a lot of authority and perks. She gave each of us a credit card sized card — some kind of pass, and we could use this to leave the convention. We needed to hold it up high enough that the guards could see it as we walked out. They might still stop us, but if we dropped her name, it should be alright. Then they tightened security, so we actually needed her with us in order to leave.

One of my brothers looked like Chris Hemsworth (Thor) or his brother (who looks similar but not quite so beefy). The mom kept handing us different things to carry in flamboyant ways. One was a bouquet of hot pink feathers made to look like flowers. This is the only one I remember, but there were more.

The ceilings were really high, and there were glass escalators and wide open space with glass walls looking outside. I went to a mall kind of like this and can’t recall where it was. I think it was in Chicago. Marshall Field Building? I don’t think it has stores anymore, but at one time it looked impressive.

In the dream, there was all this posh stuff, but it felt like a prison because of the guards and because we couldn’t leave without the cards and then, without our overbearing mother. My brother (Chris Hemsworth) started having a nervous breakdown. He said, “I can’t do this anymore” and tried to walk out. This made a scene because the guards wouldn’t let him leave. He didn’t even bother to flash the card. When they asked for it, he said, “I’m out of here” and had a determined, but unaware air about him.

Our mom realized this would cause a huge scene and create stigma for her, so she gathered all of us and said, “Get out your cards. We’re leaving.”

We got them out and lifted them up, but the guards wouldn’t let us leave without first talking to the mom. She convinced them to open the doors and let us out, and this brother ran to the middle of the parking lot, then home. I sensed he was one step away from being institutionalized, that I had one chance to save him from this fate.

When I got to his apartment, he was sitting on a large chair, kind of rocking in fetal position. He didn’t look up when I said his name, but we had had a close relationship all our lives. I knew he was really an artist and that’s why this fake world was so toxic to him.

I said in a very cheery voice, “You did it! You never need to go to that fucking place again. You’re probably banned for life. You did it! You’re free. Now you get to paint.”

He still didn’t respond, so I took one hand and arm and kind of wedged it between his armpit/arm curled around his legs. I shimmied one arm there and the other under his opposite knee, and I gave him a ridiculous hug. I started crying, empathing with him and trying to set a tone where he could have an emotional release. He was so checked out, just numb.

I hugged him tight and said again, “You did it. You never have to go to that fucking place again. You’re free.” That fucking place meant Northwestern University and academia. “They’ll never let you in again, and that’s a good thing. You can paint now.” I mentally sent him telepathic images of his artwork — past and future. He didn’t overtly respond, but I felt him engage a little when he saw the future paintings.

I continued to hug him and rocked with him as I said, “I’m proud of you. So proud of you because you did it. None of us wants to be in that prison. That fucking place is insane. You’re the sane one. You! You’re the sane one. Don’t ever let them tell you otherwise.”

I knew I needed to get him to paint again. If he was at work on a masterpiece when the people came to his place, instead of sitting in fetal position on a chair and rocking himself with vacant eyes — if he was engaged as an artist, I could keep the doctors at bay. If they saw him like this, in the chair, they would lock him up for the rest of his life. I wouldn’t be able to save him, and they would medicate him so far that he would never be able to find himself.

I knew all this but knew I couldn’t alarm him. The key was for him to realize he was an artist — that this was the reason he couldn’t play the game anymore. This was why he walked out — not because he was insane. An inspired artist has leeway. If he was hard at work when they got here, I could explain that he had had a sudden inspiration — “You know how artists are” — and that his abrupt leave taking was inspired, not crazy. Also that they needed to go, to stop interrupting him.

I wanted him to be painting like a mad artist when they arrived to take him away. Over and over I kept telling him from my heart, “I’m proud of you. So proud of you for walking away. You never need to go to that fucking place again. I love you. I’m so proud of you for leaving.”

As I said these things, I kept sending telepathic visions of his future paintings. At some point, he turned his head and looked at me. I said, “You have it all. The looks, the body. Oh, that probably sounds weird given that you’re my brother, but seriously, you’ve got it. Besides the talent — which you have in spades — you’ve got ‘it.’ You’re the real deal. You can do this.”

He looked at me again and asked, “Really?” He smiled through tears and looked a little dazed, but on the wonder side of dazed instead of the ashamed and overwhelmed side.

“Yes,” I said, “Yes.”

He hugged me back, and I knew that he would paint again. He was already a great artist, but now I knew that he would fulfill that calling. By the time the would-be institutionalizers arrived, he was hard at work on a giant mural. I shooed them away and said, “Get out of here. Leave. You can’t disrupt his genius. Can’t you see he’s painting?! Artists need to take their inspiration as it comes. Get out of here. Stop trying to interrupt his work.”

I knew my brother and I would live happily ever after because he would keep painting murals, and I could live with him away from our awful mother. She would never find us here. She didn’t even know where it was, and she couldn’t get here. We were free.

END of dream journal.

I shared this dream with a friend who commented on its cinematic qualities. I replied:

Yes, I also think it speaks to humanity in general. The people trying to foment world war are unable to create such things without a collective reality buy-in. Narrative is VERY powerful. Imagination is powerful. When enough people walk away from the crazy, reality will tip to something more beautiful and creative. I feel we are on the cusp of that.

2021 Eclipse Redux and Preview

In anticipation of the June 10, 2021 Solar Eclipse, I feel led to share some odd collective and personal happenings around the May 26th Total Lunar Eclipse. My May and June 2021 Forecasts predicted:

May 26 Full Moon Total Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius 7:14 a.m. Eastern. This Full Moon Lunar Eclipse reveals tensions between repressed feelings and group solidarity. Pay attention to light shining on old patterns, condescension, and/or rigid ideals. Do these attitudes still fit? Accept invitations to upgrade.

June 10 New Moon (Annular Solar Eclipse) in Gemini. This eclipse peaks at 6:53 a.m. Eastern time, but eclipse energies last for months. Mercury retrograde conjuncts the Sun on this day, too — helping to process, review and assimilate whatever information came to light around the May 26 Lunar Eclipse.

Since eclipses link into overarching patterns, the prior eclipse provides a kind of preview and extra focus for the one(s) that follow. We often see three eclipses per season, but this year offers only two per season.

My May 26 Full Moon Lunar Eclipse write-up delved deeper into the karmic flavor, emphasized by conjunctions with both the transiting South Node and Asteroid Nemesis. I quoted Alex Miller:

Nemesis was the goddess of due enactment, a karmic equalizer who ensured that no one had too much good fortune, but paid appropriately for their misdeeds. Known as the restorer of cosmic order, Nemesis was particularly focused on punishing acts of hubris, which is defiant pride or arrogance in one’s place, gifts or fortune. Eventually her concept was refined to include a quality of vengefulness or retribution which is lacking in the original, which was more about rectifying imbalance. In modern usage, the term “nemesis” has come to represent any opponent, competitor, or adversary, anyone who stands in the way of our goal, or enacts revenge for wrongs committed.

Astrologically, Nemesis represents the vagaries of Fate, self-undoing, reversal of fortune, and any person or thing which holds us back, prevents our will, denies goals, or punishes our actions. Additionally, there can be issues with assigning blame, scapegoating, or finding fault.

I expected some kind of big, public revelation around the time of the eclipse, and sure enough, FOIA requests presented thousands of emails from Dr. Fauci. “Gain of function,” “bioweapons research labs” and deeper scrutiny of Fauci’s possible role in the creation and spread of COVID-19 hit alternative and mainstream news in a much bigger way. We don’t yet have full clarity on this situation, but the eclipse alignments triggered a data dump resulting in a “reversal of fortune” from “Saint Fauci” to somewhere between “inept,” “Fraudci” and/or Dr. Evil, depending on how one reads the still heavily redacted emails.

This same time period also featured whistleblowers from Facebook revealing top down censorship of anything related to Wuhan lab or public debate about the COVID shots. Again, we don’t have the full story, but sizable revelations and shifts occurred at or around the time of the May 26 eclipse. Bill Gates’ ties to Jeffrey Epstein and Dr. Fauci also created a little mainstream and a lot of alternative news. I mention these because the transiting South Node brings collective karma into the spotlight. We live in a shared collective, so these larger brushstrokes influence the canvas of our lives.

How an eclipse affects individuals depends a lot on the individual natal chart. In my own case, the May 26 Full Moon conjuncted my natal Neptune, while the Sun conjunted my natal Mercury. This Neptune-Mercury opposition colors my chart and life all the time; however, key transits ignite the aspect and make it extra weird. Mercury rules communication and how we share and process information. Neptune rules the collective unconscious, the Dreamworld, and the (much) bigger picture. Mercury likes to categorize. Neptune blurs boundaries.

People who undergo a Neptune transit opposite natal Mercury often feel brain fog and wonder if they’re losing their mind. People who have this natal aspect get used to it, but tend to experience reality in illogical ways. Rational and intuitive sides pull against each other until they integrate. We feel more connected to inner planets like Mercury, whereas outer planets present as mysterious forces or “fate.” An outer planet with a slow orbit, Neptune floods and dissolves a “normal” Mercury.

In my personal and professional life, this Neptune-Mercury opposition plays out as vivid dreams, an ability to tap into and take short trips to other realms, and easy communication with beings “beyond the veil.” I’ve had a lifetime of head injuries, precognitive dreams, and paranormal events. My general life “climate” includes synchronicity storms that would make most people question their sanity.

The May 26 eclipse upped those storm categories.

I awoke about a half hour before the eclipse moment of 7:14 a.m. Eastern time. I’d been dreaming about Jedi Mind Tricks and padawans, a woman in a green evening gown, and how to manage very bendy reality. Here’s an excerpt from my May 26 dream journal entry — not the dream itself but me pondering how this dream energy continued into waking life:

I woke up to clanging in the kitchen, and David apologized if the floor is sticky. My leftover can of black beans had leapt out of the fridge and spread all over the kitchen. He ended up giving the floor a very deep scrub. I apologized but also did not understand how the beans could have just leapt out of the fridge like that. In my mind I noted that I had been meaning to clean the floor, so now it was done. OK. Also, in bed, I had considered that those beans really didn’t agree with me yesterday. I ate them at lunch and got VERY brain foggy afterwards. I considered throwing them out. When I awoke, they had just been literally thrown out of the fridge.

I opened the front curtains [this is all waking life from the beans onward] and a plant leapt off the painted table, landing behind the other plant stands and requiring a clean up. I had been meaning to re-pot that plant and also to clean behind the tables there. I said this to David just as I cleaned it up.

When I was finished, ANOTHER plant, which I had originally thought I might pot up with the first one, also leapt off the table and required more clean up. This was getting ridiculous.

I cleaned that up, then noticed I needed to turn the jade plant. Doing so required me moving a pot of fake plants I use just to fill in the one spot if needed. There’s damage to the plant stand table, which now shows without the fake plant there. All of a sudden I realized that’s where “they” want the two re-potted succulents to go.

I feel like faeries have invaded our house …

When I stood up from cleaning up the second upturned plant, I very gently — ever so gently– whacked my head on the edge of the painted cabinet. I did this at the exact moment of the eclipse, then forgot about it until I read texts from Faery Twin Tania Marie. These arrived the night before, but I only saw them in the morning. She shared how she had cracked her head — hard — the night before the eclipse, just hours after finding a sacrum bone from a bear. You can read her saga here.

Our natal Neptune’s are close to each other and we both had personal activations in our natal charts from the eclipse. I’ve alluded to ongoing inner processing and powerful dreams/synchronicities related to life and death energies. As part of this inner processing for the past two years, I’ve intended “only the gentlest, kindest, easiest, most beneficial, least traumatic, least karmic, most beautiful unfolding.” A Neptunian prayer if ever there was one!

This ongoing intention and my Neptune-Mercury activation colored how I experienced the eclipse. No one “spilled the beans”; actual beans spilled themselves. The flying leap/surrender of plants who’d outgrown their pots, life nudging along the washing of floors that needed washing anyway, and the ever so gentle tap on my head right at the eclipse — all affirmed that healing and growth can occur without excess trauma. The process might involve a little cleanup, but answered prayer can buffer at least some of the intensity.

Later that day, I went on a walk. As I crossed our street, a thought dropped into my mind: “Randy (our next door neighbor) is either getting ready to pass, or he already died this morning.” I saw no overt signs of that, but I felt the energy shift around his home. I returned, did a session for someone whose dear relative died the day before the eclipse, and when I got out of the session, I noticed David looking sad. I hugged him and asked what happened.

“I saw Pam on the way in from work. Randy died this morning.”

Our sweet neighbor had been very ill, off and on, for years. He used to trap and relocate groundhogs for me. I would often visit him on his front porch, or he’d pop by when I watered the front garden. A dream three mornings later made me realize that Randy not only died at the eclipse. He died exactly four years to the day after we first met him — on the day we purchased our home.

I share this here to honor Randy’s life, but also because Randy has sometimes appeared in dreams. I shared one of those dreams on November 14, 2020, sensing a collective component to that dream. It also linked into some ongoing “T-Square” dreams, and a synchronicity supernova. Randy’s death appears to be some kind of time marker connected to a long series of interrelated, seemingly precognitive dreams. Time will tell. I only mention this as dream validation of astrological validation of a lot of people’s intuitive sense that we’re in monumental times. Indeed, I highlighted the period between my May 22 birthday and the end of June as a period of astro fireworks.

The June 10 New Moon (Annular Solar Eclipse) occurs at 19°47′ Gemini, conjunct Mercury Retrograde at 20°41′ Gemini. Later that day, Mercury and the Sun will pass notes as they meet for a moment, then go their separate ways. Expect more revelations.

Dane Rudhyar’s Sabian Symbol for the (rounded up) 20° Gemini Solar Eclipse is:

PHASE 80 (GEMINI 20°): A MODERN CAFETERIA DISPLAYS AN ABUNDANCE OF FOOD, PRODUCTS OF VARIOUS REGIONS.

KEYNOTE: The assimilation of multifarious knowledge through the synthesizing power of the mind.

This … implies a certain kind of synthesis or at least a preparation which leads to a new level. The keynote here is indeed ASSIMILATION; the negative potentiality of the symbol is WASTE.  (You can find the full write-up here.)

This eclipse could trigger such a flood of revelations that important details get lost in a mudslide. Those resigned to inevitable disclosure might release an avalanche of data all at once, in hopes that people lack time, energy or patience to sift through the mess. If enough individuals examine and process these revelations, then we — as a collective — will find and assimilate whatever we most need.

The whole is greater than the sum of its parts — and this particular whole might even “show its math.”

Neptune in Pisces and Mercury in Gemini square each other during the June 10 eclipse, so any revelations will involve some friction between the intuitive and rational. Cognitive dissonance will clang. Collectively, I expect contrasts of confusion, delusion, dissolution, disappointment, grief, deception, addictions, euphoria, compassion and overwhelm (Neptune) vs. careful review, revision, logic, communication, clarity and rapid response (Mercury).

Whatever floods or floats past our awareness around this eclipse will help shake things loose on the June 14 Saturn Square Uranus event. This key transit following a Solar Eclipse amplifies the themes and messages of each event. As my June Forecast noted:

Squares create constructive friction. Though uncomfortable, our differences can reveal the whole as greater than the sum of its parts. This Saturn square Uranus energy runs throughout 2021. In which areas are you trying to control others? In which areas do you feel others trying to control you? Think “Live and Let Live.” How might this attitude support new levels of cooperation?

The collective will undergo significant shifts this summer. How these events personally impact you depends on your natal chart, as well as which level you choose to engage. You can experience energies in literal or symbolic ways — i.e. “spilling the beans” instead of whistle-blowing or confession.

Some people will read today’s post as political because it references current events. Others will recognize the maxims, “As Above, So Below,” and “As Within, So Without.” Everything we encounter symbolizes and connects with something else. Inner and outer space are vast and linked.

The Saturday following the eclipse — May 29 — I felt the weight of many visions, both personal and collective. Absurd yet confirming synchronicities continued to appear, and I couldn’t shake a profound sense of grief. Part of this was mine, yet it felt bigger than mine alone. I went outside to tend my garden. That usually lifts my spirits, but this time, the heaviness remained. Almost too much to bear.

I noticed a pot of yarrow in the backyard raised bed and made a mental note to fertilize it. Compared to all my other potted yarrow, this one looked puny and malnourished. I weeded the area around the pot as I watered the bed. Then I moved to other areas of the garden. The sadness and weight on my chest remained, as though the hose poured from a bottomless well of grief. This is VERY unlike me — especially in the garden.

Moments later, I heard a sing-song, almost imperceptible “Laurrrrrr—-a. Laurrrrrr—a.”

This quiet, melodic voice beckoned me to turn around. When I did, my eyes shot to a bright spot just behind the pot of yarrow. I said to myself, “What IS that?!”

The sing-song “Laurrrrr—a. Laurrrrr—a” called to me from that spot. I walked over to examine the area I had just viewed while pondering the yarrow and weeding nearby plants.

Out of nowhere, this iris appeared:

As strange as it sounds, the melodic calling of my name seemed to emanate from this flower — or perhaps from a faery disguised as a bug on one petal. I never planted this variety of iris. It’s smaller, more delicate and totally different colors than the large yellow irises we inherited with the yard.

I felt something touch the center of my chest, the area the grief weighed down. It felt like a faery placed the tip of her magic wand right on my heart chakra. The heaviness grew light, then delighted and almost giddy. Joy bubbled up inside my heart. I could still sense the grief, but this beautiful and magical encounter felt like the balm of Gilead.

I shared the photo and story with a few people, and the magic continued. Tania informed me that she has this type of iris in her garden. We know our gardens and offices connect via portals, but this felt extraordinary. Another person with whom I shared the photo and story told me it triggered major faery magic in her own garden. A rose bush that “never blooms” put forth two flowers. She displayed them in a vase and the next day, the entire sprawling rose bush FILLED with blooms. She sent photos, and they are glorious!

I knew I would share this story on my blog, because it illustrates — again — the loving support available when we open ourselves to other levels of experience. We will still sense energies, but things can soften and uplift. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: “Grace happens.”

Open your heart to loving-kindness. That tiny shift will change your world.

June 2021 Forecast and Second Quarter North Node Horoscopes

JUNE 2021 FORECAST

Expect seismic shifts in June 2021. The month begins with Mercury, Saturn and Pluto still in retrograde. These energies encourage introspection and revision — especially around insecurities and taboo topics. June also features a Solar Eclipse, Summer (or Winter) Solstice and one of the most important transits all year — the second round of Saturn square Uranus. It might feel like living lifetimes between the beginning and end of June. Trust the process. Change feels stressful, but it can also liberate and heal. You were born to experience these times!

June 1 Sun conjunct North Node. This brief transit shines extra light on our collective destiny. Pay special attention to insights or synchronicities from May 31-June 2.

June 2 Venus enters Cancer. The goddess of love, beauty, money and personal values moves from chatty, flirty Gemini to nurturing Cancer. The next 25 days bring special focus to the ways emotions affect our close relationships and self-esteem. It’s also a wonderful time to beautify your home.

June 10 New Moon (Annular Solar Eclipse) in Gemini. This eclipse peaks at 6:53 a.m. Eastern time, but eclipse energies last for months. Mercury retrograde conjuncts the Sun on this day, too — helping to process, review and assimilate whatever information came to light around the May 26 Lunar Eclipse.

June 11 Mars enters Leo. The fiery god of passion, war and willpower enters the sign of the lion. Ruled by the Sun, Leo energizes Mars. Follow your heart. Bring some fun to your workspace. Engage and play. After an emotional seven weeks in Cancer, Mars feels light and confident again — ready to take on the world.

June 14 Saturn square Uranus, Round Two of Three. The first exact square occurred on February 17, 2021. The third occurs on Christmas Eve. Look back to mid-February for clues of what continues to need balance. New normal vs. old traditions: seek innovative solutions that preserve the best of the past with eyes on a more positive future. Squares create constructive friction. Though uncomfortable, our differences can reveal the whole as greater than the sum of its parts. This Saturn square Uranus energy runs throughout 2021. In which areas are you trying to control others? In which areas do you feel others trying to control you? Think “Live and Let Live.” How might this attitude support new levels of cooperation?

June 20 Summer Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere (Winter Solstice in the Southern Hemisphere). The Sun moves into Cancer at 11:32 p.m. Eastern time. This is also the day that Jupiter stations retrograde in Pisces. This date feels like taking the deepest breath all year. Pause before you exhale. We’re almost halfway through 2021. Whether you’ve liked it or not, make a gratitude list for the year thus far. Gratitude invites more blessings. “Not yet” doesn’t always mean “no.”

June 22 Mercury stations direct. Mercury goes retrograde three to four times per year, and these periods interact with each other. Look back to January 30 – February 20, 2021 to see which themes might arise for further review, restructuring, or release between May 29 and June 22. On a collective note, Mercury also stationed direct on 2020 Election Day in the US. As ongoing audits explore the Mercury retrograde period from October 13 – November 3, 2020, we can expect additional insights and understanding to arise in June.

June 24 Full Moon in Capricorn at 2:40 p.m. Eastern. This Strawberry Moon hearkens back to the December 26, 2019 Solar Eclipse. Does something that occurred during that holiday season make more sense now? Explore ways in which you try to rationalize feelings. What’s really going on here? How can you balance self-sufficiency with the need to connect and share with others? Another round of Saturn sextile Chiron offers a chance to learn and heal through your Full Moon insights.

June 25 Neptune stations retrograde in Pisces. With co-rulers Neptune and Jupiter both retrograde in Pisces, questions of hope and faith arise. Late June offers supportive energy to deepen spirituality. The next months encourage prayer, meditation, creativity, and dreamwork. As Einstein said, “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” Grace happens.

June 27 Venus enters Leo. Put your most radiant, beautiful, and heartfelt face forward. Earlier June emphasized nurturing others. Venus in Leo encourages you to shine. Turn up that megawatt smile and pamper your mane. If you have trouble accepting compliments, practice saying “Thank you,” without any self-deprecation or deflection. When you feel good about yourself, you radiate that energy to the world.

How June’s sky weather affects you will vary, depending on your entire natal chart, but your North Node Horoscope transcends monthly sky events. That’s because your North Node reveals what your soul came here to do. By midlife, the soul starts longing and pressing us to live our true purpose. At first, it whispers through intuition. Then it knocks a little louder through “coincidences” and external events. When not heard and honored, the soul’s longing can show up as health crises, marriage or work issues, or wondering “is this all there is?” If you feel a need to reinvent yourself, following North Node guidance helps you do that authentically — for you.

Unlike generic Sun Sign horoscopes, which ignore so many other aspects, following North Node guidance will always lead you in the right direction. Doors open, healing happens, relationships improve, and life gets more magical. This monthly column will help you tap into your personal North Node Mojo. When you start living your North Node purpose, we all win, because you not only begin to light up your own life. You light up the world.           – Laura


You can find your North Node sign here which is often different than your Sun sign. (If you’re right on a cusp, consider both options, or book a reading for more clarity.)

SECOND QUARTER 2021 NORTH NODE HOROSCOPES

ARIES NORTH NODE: Second Quarter explodes into your life with good intentions. Your nodal axis ignites with all the activity in Aries, Aquarius and Gemini. Air feeds Fire, and your passion for justice alternately flickers and burns strong over the next three months. Don’t sit on the sidelines. Righting injustice requires you to wield your own sword of truth and liberation. Late April through early June could spark inner tension and doubt as Mars moves through Cancer. Use these shadowboxing moments to gain strength and clarity about what you need to succeed. Keep your eye on the prize, and create an action plan to address obstacles. Summon courage and take the lead. Beware of codependent behaviors that sneak in when you least expect. Pay more attention to how well things work than to how they look or what others might think. Try something new this quarter. Tradition is no match for mavericks.


TAURUS NORTH NODE: Law of Attraction comes into prominent play in Second Quarter 2021. April and May feature a lot of energy in your North Node sign — some of it potentially disruptive, with ongoing squares from Aquarius, too. Your Scorpio South Node already knows trauma drama, so focus attention on thriving no matter what. Taurus benefits from small, steady steps and habits. A daily mindfulness, yoga and/or breath practice will allow you to find and maintain your center, no matter what erupts around you. Learn to calm the volcano before it explodes. Yes, you know how to rise from the ashes, but you’ve already been there, done that. Focus on the finer things in life. You deserve quality in every area. If it requires determination, know you’re worth it. You don’t need to broadcast those desires. Few people can fathom your long term trajectory. Just keep going. Your sign ruler Venus comes home on April 14. Bask in her beauty, encouragement and love. Once you gather momentum, it carries you far.


GEMINI NORTH NODE: Stay strong, my friends! Second Quarter 2021 helps you awaken from the nightmare into something fresh and more relaxed. Deception, trickery and duplicity bother you more than most North Node natives, because your Sagittarius South Node loves Truth with a capital T. The Truth. One life lesson involves learning to look at things from many angles, choosing to embrace things in the best possible way for you. If something’s not working, pivot a little to the left or right. Do this often enough, and life becomes a dance. Focus less on getting things “right” and more on play. Pay attention to synchronicities. Mercury the Messenger rules your North Node sign, and makes you extra adept at tracking clues. Get creative, even if you only delight yourself. Little things matter, especially if they help you move through negative feelings caused by focusing on what you don’t want. Whenever you fixate, turn your gaze to something else. Literally. Turn your head; move your eyes. Welcome the new insights this practice brings.


CANCER NORTH NODE
: Second Quarter 2021 involves some heavy lifting and hard work. If you feel burdened by caring for others, remember to pause for self-nurturing. Yes, you need this — especially when you think you don’t have time for it! Gather your spiritual tools and honor your changing moods and needs. This, too, shall pass. You have what it takes to do what must be done. If you allow for a more feminine, receptive approach, you’ll find support where you least expect. Moments of magic sneak into your awareness as you realize how all the elements converge to guide events. Lean into your emotions instead of trying to avoid them. Emotions bring raw energy, which can fuel desire and manifestation. When you align yourself with emotional tides, their flow carries you where you need to go. Invite quiet power and gentle commitment as you nurture new things into being. Breathe through any birth pangs, knowing the release will open space in the cosmic womb of creation. Sometimes you need to push, but you’re not alone anymore. Accept the support on offer.


LEO NORTH NODE: This next quarter is pivotal for Leo North Node natives, but you don’t control the timing. Major activations from the collective nodal axis in Gemini and Sagittarius, planets traversing your Aquarius South Node, and potent squares from all the activity in Taurus bring a sense of destiny and order as events unfold of their own accord. You still need to pay attention, because some of these energies create friction; however, any irritation will be productive and lead to more balanced living. Pay special attention to your physical and emotional bodies. When in doubt, choose moderation, because you could easily drive yourself too hard. No need to push, Leo! If your world feels upside down or inside out, recognize the temporary nature of these feelings. Even though you don’t know the exact how or when, slowly and surely, you’ve been building a more heartfelt foundation from which you can thrive and shine. As you gain clarity on old relationships and habits, relish moments to dance and play. Love is in the air — whether new love or a deeper love for your beautiful, radiant self. Open your heart and soak in the sunlight.


VIRGO NORTH NODE: Second Quarter 2021 brings creativity and hard work, but you’ll enjoy the process. It’s easy to get excited about something new, but you need to stick with it in order to reap the real benefits. Keep showing up, day by day, moment by moment, and those castles in the sky will take form in the here and now. Cultivate balance between daydreams and action. You need both in order to find success and satisfaction. Too much daydreaming leads to inaction. Keeping your nose to grindstone too long leads to burnout. Build in tiny breaks throughout your workday — moments of calm amidst the hustle bustle. Five minutes of chair yoga enhances overall productivity. Practice developing realistic expectations for yourself and others. Again, balance is key. Beware the pedestal that tips over and leads to disillusion. No one’s perfect. Troubleshooting and accurate assessments of strength and weakness help you to bring more of what you like into being. It’s OK to use your left brain sometimes! When married to the creative, intuitive side, that left brain brings accountability, punctuality and dreams come true. If you’ve slipped into old habits or addictions, get back on the wagon. Life flows better when you do.


LIBRA NORTH NODE: This next quarter brings activation from so many different angles that Libra North Node natives may need a time out to catch up. Practice patience as you view things from a new perspective. Your Aries South Node loves to rush in, but fast action is not always right action. Your mental realm of thought, words and intentions could undergo significant shifts from April thru June 2021. If you don’t know where you’re going, don’t just forge ahead. You’ll save time and heartache if you first allow yourself to integrate new information and experiences. Wise counsel from a trusted friend or elder may prove key to your success and happiness. Bring partners into any decisions that would affect them, too. Pay attention to dreams — especially “bad” ones. So called nightmares help you navigate challenges in your sleep so that you can move forward better in waking life. If something seems confusing or outrageous, ask for help and clarity. When possible, seek the middle way and compromise. Sometimes situations just need a little modification. Focus on bridge building. You do not need to burn bridges. If you lean into the astro energies this quarter, they’ll do a lot of the work for you. Peace in, peace out.


SCORPIO NORTH NODE: Second Quarter 2021 brings golden opportunities, provided you move beyond Taurus South Node over-concern about finances, health, and security. Scorpio North Node natives resist change … and yet, of all the North Node signs, yours most thrives through change. Notice any tendencies to latch onto the worst case scenario. When you catch yourself doing this, affirm your intention to recognize and receive the blessings. All is not as it appears. Instead of cowering in fear, boldly explore better options. Like an alchemist transmuting baser metals into gold, that which no longer serves you will transform into deeper, richer, and more fulfilling life. Allow this process of rebirth to occur. You can’t stop the life force energy, but you can align with it. You can dance with change. You are strong, mysterious and magical. Like the phoenix, you rise from the ashes, again and again. This is life, the exuberant tulip bursting through soil as winter’s grip subsides. You have an uncanny ability to go deep and high, to contract and expand. You’re a supernova. Once you accept this about yourself, you will always find the light. You have spiritual protection, the best security force in the Universe.


SAGITTARIUS NORTH NODE: The world is at your feet! If you’ve felt cooped up this past year, get out and go somewhere. Travel helps you magnetize joy and abundance to your life. As the transiting South Node continues to make its way through your North Node sign, you might feel opposite to the collective experience. That’s OK. You need to follow your own intuitive guidance. Second Quarter 2021 brings opportunities for greater community, love and financial support. If it feels right to you, then don’t be afraid to commit to something that makes your heart sing. Just because the rest of the world remains in a kind of surreal pause doesn’t mean you need to fidget and twiddle your thumbs. This time, right now, offers rainbows and the proverbial pot of gold. Keep your eyes open and faith high. Seek Truth and allow yourself to believe in good things. Old contacts could resurface with positive results. If you hear from someone “out of the blue,” ask your angels to reveal the higher purpose of this connection. Destiny level transits are in play for you. Nothing’s random — pay attention to synchronicities. If you feel adrift, check out Robert Moss’s book, “The Three Only Things.”


CAPRICORN NORTH NODE
: Second Quarter 2021 brings a time of introspection and reflection. Notice any tension between your desires and opportunities to fulfill them. Pay attention to offers on the periphery of normal life. What seems insignificant or random right now deserves consideration. You might still opt for something more familiar, but do explore things outside your comfort zone. Your Cancer South Node gets triggered this quarter, which might make you feel more cautious than usual. If you feel the urge to run and hide, hang out for a little while longer. Breathe through any negative self talk, and focus on your gifts and skills. What do you already know? In which areas have you earned some authority? How can you feel more confident? Capricorn North Node natives are born leaders. As much as you enjoy hiding in your Cancer South Node shell, you’ll find fulfillment by accepting responsibility and putting yourself out there. You’ll also feel more secure as you gain self-sufficiency. Mature partnerships work for you, but beware of codependent relationships. Does someone make you feel small or insecure? Do you baby people instead of empowering them to stand on their own two feet? Honor your own and others’ natural growth process.


AQUARIUS NORTH NODE: The long beginning of a new cycle. With Saturn and Jupiter continuing in Aquarius, and a bunch of planets squaring from Taurus and trining from Gemini, Aquarius North Node natives activate throughout Second Quarter 2021. This process began on Winter Solstice 2020. Aquarius receives sudden inspiration, yet it’s a Fixed Sign. Aquarius is zany and unpredictable, but hopefully not foolhardy. Destiny’s smiling on you right now. Trust in the mantra “If not this, then something better.” You don’t need to jump at the first opportunity. Love, security, community, and a return to innocence are all on offer. Allow yourself to define these terms in unconventional ways. Ongoing nodal activations encourage new understanding of yourself in context to a larger whole. Aquarius is the Water Bearer. Consider what it means to bear water — to parched land or a thirsty stranger, to some cause that tugs on your heart. Focus on gratitude, especially in April. In what ways does your cup overflow? May asks you to explore connections with other beings. These could include people, as well as animals or your environment. How can you feel more integral to the web of life? June brings opportunities to release old injuries. Forgiveness of self and others frees and energizes you.


PISCES NORTH NODE
: Second Quarter 2021 brings a possibility of travel. If you feel blind right now, unable to see clearly, breathe through the anxiety. Focus on one breath at a time, following it in, then out, then in, then out. Pausing between each breath reminds you of the importance of sometimes not doing anything at all. Just observe. You can move into the unknown with Grace. You don’t always need to know your 5-year plan. Ground any nervous energy with regular exercise. Forget “no pain, no gain.” Instead, focus on whatever feels good to body and soul. Spend time in nature, roll out your yoga mat, or trance dance under the stars. Pay attention to younger people, or to younger iterations of yourself. What wisdom did you embody before you felt the need to grow up? Learn to wander and wonder. Recognize a Higher Power that moves through you with its own goals. As you align yourself with All That Is, you cleanse away those niggling should’s, but’s, and what if’s. Practice being here now, moment by moment. Again, follow your breath, pausing in between each breath. These potent pauses in life generate success. The more you focus on quieting your mind and tuning into your spirit, the wiser you become.

X-Files, Owls, Faeries and Soft Disclosure

A friend wished me Happy Leprechaun Day, and I said, “I like that. I might swipe it for a St. Patty’s Day post, if you don’t mind.”

She said, “Of course not, the little guys would love it!”

So … Happy Leprechaun Day!

I searched my blog for “Leprechaun” because I know I shared about a real life Leprechaun experience I had involving a pair of boots. I keep dreaming of shoes and boots, so I know that post will appear sometime. Apparently, THIS post wants to go up again.

For all those people who ask me about resources regarding Faeries, ETs, and UFOs, here you go … recommended resources as of February 2016.

Laura Bruno's Blog

Today’s post began one way, and then turned into a compilation of resources:

Here’s an interesting and thoughtful piece from Rebecca Hardcastle Wright called, “What’s Beneath ET Disclosure: Were We Lab Rats?” — definitely worth a read now that the new X-Files, Hillary, Podesta, all manner of experiencers and the New Age cavalry seem to be pushing a soft disclosure of ET presence. As an ironic rule, I don’t make firm conclusions, really not in any area, but especially not this one. Rebecca asks herself some difficult questions, yet her conclusion reminds me of something I notice in so many other areas these days — no matter what the original intent and real or imagined existence of would-be overlords, people continue to free themselves from the maze.

In addition to Rebecca’s article, I highly recommend Mike Clelland’s new book, “The Messengers: Owls, Synchronicity and the UFO Abductee,” which I’ve reviewed

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 20-minute 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 September 30, 2020. Please contact me to sign up.
