Ann Kreilkamp ~ “Saturn to enter Capricorn on December 19, 2017 — slow down! Serious business ahead!”

Huge thanks to fellow permaculture friend and blogger Ann Kreilkamp for this excellent write-up. I read energies and come to similar conclusions via different means, so it’s always helpful and confirming to see it all explained from an astrological angle. If you’ve been feeling or noticing an increased sense of immediate “karmic consequences” for yourself or others living out of alignment, or if you feel like life’s “putting the squeeze” on you (and/or the US and its sick underbelly), read on for context and strategies:

Saturn to enter Capricorn on December 19, 2017 — slow down! Serious business ahead!

By Ann Kreilkamp

Saturn moves through one sign in about two and a half years. This will be its first transit through Capricorn since 1988-1990. If you recall, those are the years that surrounded the fall of the Berlin wall, on November 9, 1989. One of the keywords for Saturn is “wall.” Plus, that wall was up for 30 years, one Saturn cycle!

Back then, not only Saturn, but electric Uranus and oceanic Neptune were also transiting through Capricorn, moving in and out of conjunction during part of that time, and not leaving until 1995.

The millennial generation, born during those years, is tasked, on an unconscious level, with dissolving (Neptune), breaking down (Uranus) and reconfiguring (Saturn) forms — of both our own bodies and the institutions of society. For Capricorn is a sign that rules form, structure, rules, roles, regulations. It sets the philosophies and ideologies of Sagittarius (where Saturn transits just prior to Capricorn) in place, gathering, holding, and stabilizing energetic flows through its forms and channels.

This time around, since early 2015 during which Saturn Continue reading

Moving Beyond Discouragement

I had an email catch up with a friend today, and we both thought parts of our exchange would help anyone else facing discouragement. I’ve corrected typos, added paragraphs for easier reading, and removed obviously identifying information like names, location and personal details. Otherwise, the question and my response appear intact below.

This week I’ve heard from enough clients, friends and relatives that I know more than just my friend are dancing a mazurka with discouragement. Whether your challenge stems from money, work, family, health, life path, and/or romance, please know, you’re not alone. You don’t need to know your entire trajectory right this moment. You just need to get unstuck by finding and taking the next step. And then the next one. As J.R.R. Tolkien said, “Little by little, one travels far.”

My friend:

… As an aside, do you ever get discouraged? The reason I ask is because you always seem so confident in your dealings and writings about Faeries, the world beyond the Veil, and all things spiritual/mystical, and that is a tremendous inspiration to me, but Continue reading

Forest Bathing, Indoor Garden and Writing Updates

Several people have inquired how my November writing month went, as well as how we’re enjoying David being in Kalamazoo full-time now. I thought I’d give some quick updates. We still love it here! Every week we find new local hiking spots of such beauty, and we haven’t even begun to explore the various forests one to three hours from here. So far, we just feel delighted to drive three to fifteen minutes to scenes like these:

GIFT CERTIFICATES AND DECEMBER 2017 SPECIAL:

Gift Certificates:

Each year, people ask if they can gift a session to a loved one. I like to offer a discount to honor the love and care behind this gift. Certificates purchased in 2017 will remain valid through December 31, 2018. Since people always ask me this: no, you may not purchase a gift certificate for yourself. You can, however, request someone else get you a gift certificate. 😉 When you contact me to order a gift certificate, please let me now the name of the person you’re gifting, as well as any details you’d like me to include on the certificate. I’ll create and email you a personalized PDF, which you can email or print out for your loved one.

2017 gift certificates cover any of my services at $99/half hour instead of the usual rate of $133/half hour. 

(If you’d like to offer your loved one a Tarot reading, I can also turn the $44 November Tarot Special into a gift certificate, as long as you purchase that one by November 30th.)

Please contact me by December 31, 2017 to create your half-hour session, custom created gift certificate(s). If you’d like your certificate ready by a particular date, please allow at least a 48-hour turnaround.

Portals at Asylum Lake

On Thanksgiving, David and I took a hike at one of our favorite spots in Kalamazoo — Asylum Lake Preserve. We always find portals and magical spots, and Thursday was no exception. Here are some that David managed to catch on his iPhone.

We call this one “The Ganesha Tree,” and he opens the way to one of the trails. Can you see the elephant eye, ears, leg, and trunk? I think it looks even more like Ganesha from the other side, but the lighting worked better this way.

You can see the smaller of the two lakes behind me (above), and the larger of the two lakes below:

We also saw some amazing faery portals: Continue reading

A Recurring Theme

Wise words from faery sis Tania Marie, and a synchronously recurring theme in life, sessions and work on my novel:

“You are free to choose your beliefs, and the actions you take, as well as the experiences you have, will reflect those beliefs. Choose with utmost heart awareness so that when you experience the reflection of your beliefs, you won’t feel like a victim, but rather, will be empowered by whatever gifts you’ve given to yourself, as your chosen growth.” ~ Tania Marie

Blind Spots

This video stormed YouTube back in 2013, but it remains one of the best (and funniest) illustrations I’ve seen about blind spots and recurring patterns.

So often, those long suffering issues can shift for good with a humble, courageous look in the mirror and/or a caring someone who suggests that look. Because many times … it is about the nail.

“More important than talent, strength, or knowledge is the ability to laugh at yourself and enjoy the pursuit of your dreams.” ~ Amy Grant
