Spring has sprung!

First flowers in the garden this year:

Preparing for Equinox 2023

Happy Equinox! I’m reblogging this since I put it up so long ago. Blessings at this time of magical rebalance.

Laura Bruno's Blog

This was a request from a few people, so I’m putting it up way early. I’ll get the written New Moon in Aries post up closer to the 21st, but I thought I’d share some of the magical energies of Equinox and the next day’s New Moon in Aries. If you love faery and mermaid energy, you’re in for a treat!

A Tale of Two Timelines

This post from May 2014 popped up again. Oddly, I could have written the exact same thing today. Thanks, Prior Self, for saving me the trouble. In 2014, I would not have believed civilization could sustain this level of divergence for another nine years. Contrast usually makes for easier decisions, but the fog of war is thicker than cashew butter!

Will Saturn in Pisces bring accountability to lies, psyops, illusions and delusions? It will be very interesting to see if all of Dolores Cannon’s QHHT sessions mentioning Two Earths show up in 3D form as the March 2023 energies really get going.

Laura Bruno's Blog

I know it has become rather vogue to declare that “we’re all on one timeline now” because “we’re all one;” however, from my vantage point, this world continues to polarize in ever more dramatic ways. Clients, friends, family members, people I know through community volunteering — lately everyone seems to be receiving a mega-phoned, “Are you sure?!”

Revelations of betrayals have become so absurdly obvious that the levels of denial now required to ignore them truly boggle both mind and heart. Personal relationships reveal evidence of in-your-face double lives and months or years of deliberate, calculated lies. Companies that have demanded loyalty from good employees reveal themselves as totalitarian versions of the same old, same old, regardless of lip service to their “different way of doing business.” The US government isn’t even hiding its plans to wage war on US citizens: the USDA has now joined agencies like the IRS…

March 2023 Specials

For those people starting to freak out about the shifts we’re already seeing this month, a reminder: while we can’t completely avoid what’s happening, we can always upgrade by working with available energies. I offered these particular specials this month in order to help people sidestep some of the gnarly things we’re likely to see this month and coming months.

This is also one major reason I started my YouTube channel at this time–in order to present alternative ways of approaching these energies. Wherever and however you are, please know that love, light, support and inspiration are available. Perhaps these things will even come through you to support and inspire others.

love and blessings,

Laura Bruno's Blog

March 2023 initiates a big shift in energies. As always, I intuit which specials to offer each month. These seem extra supportive right now:


Personal Preparedness Session

I keep getting emails asking me to provide my take on:

“What’s happening in the world right now?”

“What’s going to happen in the future?”

“How much food do I need on hand?”

“Do I need to pull my money out of big banks?”

“Do I really need to worry about ____?”

“How do I start a successful garden?”

“Should I relocate?”

“How do I magically protect myself and my property?”

“Do you really see a positive way through these times?”

There are no hard and fast answers to these questions, because they VERY much depend on who you are, how you are, and where you are (your physical location and your current life circumstances). I don’t provide general answers…

“Do I really need to worry about ____?”

“How do I start a successful garden?”

“Should I relocate?”

“How do I magically protect myself and my property?”

“Do you really see a positive way through these times?”

There are no hard and fast answers to these questions, because they VERY much depend on who you are, how you are, and where you are (your physical location and your current life circumstances). I don’t provide general answers because general answers do not apply to everyone. Even people who live in the same community can have extremely different experiences.

This new 30-minute special tailors the answers to you and your particular situation and energy. $123 to answer those pesky questions that nag you in the wee hours of the morning. Offer valid if prepaid on or before 3/31/2023. Please contact me to sign up.

Timeline Tune-Up

This 40-minute offering helps identify which areas of your life can most benefit from the energetic openings in the next few months. I focus your reading on finding small shifts you can make in order to generate monumental trajectory changes — kind of like switching the tracks on a railway. Tiny adjustments in the here and now can result in hugely different journeys later. $144 if prepaid on or before 3/31/2023. (Save $33 off the usual 40-minute rate.) Please contact me to sign up.

This special can be standalone or an add-on to the Personal Preparedness Special.


Oops! I got way ahead of myself in the email version of this and listed expiration date for 7/31/2023. The correct expiration date is 3/31/2023.

Fear or Flowers: Love in the Time of Transmutation

I wrote this post almost nine years ago, but it’s just as relevant today:

Pick a headline, any headline: WW3, worldwide famine, corporations poisoning all waters, Civil War, global financial collapse, global warming, global Ice Age, “mutually assured destruction” … you name it, we’ve got it. The question is, what do we intend to do with it?

I recently posted at the end of a gardening article: I truly believe all the challenges facing our world today offer opportunities to return to our Divine connection, spiritual tools and natural abilities. Faery tales — great repositories of truth — describe so many situations in which people with pure hearts receive even the most impossible gifts. People say with scorn, “Oh, that’s just a fairy tale, a myth,” in order to dismiss something as ridiculous. I could not disagree more. Our weakness, disconnection and “need” to struggle are the biggest lies ever told. Faery tales, folklore, ballads, and myths — real ones, not Disney — give us clues and wisdom for a return to more magical lives.

If you want to fill your imagination and creative capacity with disastrous details, symbols and images, then plenty of websites, newspapers and media options will help you do just that. If you want to distract yourself while remaining unconsciously committed to the slaughterhouse path, plenty of “reality” TV shows, smart phone app’s, fashion catalogs and gossip rags will help you do just that.

But what if you want to transmute the negativity into something positive? What if you want to imagine something preferable and supercharge your imaginings into form? I wrote an email to a friend this morning with the title “globally curious.” That email included the following excerpt:

I keep seeing this since 2013, but much more so in the past month — service to self and defiantly ignorant or defiantly abusive people are being given a chance to recognize what they’re doing and to choose to correct the mistake in this moment, with no consequences so long as they truly shift. It’s like the universe is saying, “It’s decision time. Are you SURE you want to go down that path? Are you SURE, because this decision really matters.” As in, the decision creates matter.

It always reminds me of the Hopi Prophecy that every living being will be given a choice before the Red Star Kachina, the purifier, comes. Of all the prophecies, that one seems most to be playing out right now. Those who return to the old ways will find Gaia magically transformed through great chaos, but they will be untouched by the chaos themselves. I just feel this happening, and I see it with clients, stories about their relationships, observe online at [various] sites, and even my David has witnessed some absurdly obvious versions of this at work. El Mundo Malo or El Mundo Bueno.

Which do you choose?

Here in Goshen, while we face an uncharacteristically brutal winter, we’ve got unexpected flowers inside. You can see them reaching towards the outside world — offering glimpses of color and beauty in an otherwise white, grey and frozen land:

flowering geraniums

Inside the curtains, we see lush green foliage and just the hint of those red flowers shining possibility to a barren world. We know the flowers exist, so those outside our faery haven receive even more brilliant flashes to remind them of what’s possible. Does anyone from the nearby apartments ever open their blinds to see those flowers? I don’t know, but for now … in the bleakest winter … those flowers will remain in that window offering an alternative:


I saw this video on Rumor Mill News the other night, and I loved the video, as well as the comments, included below. Fear or Flowers? Love in the Time of Transmutation. All is possible when we remember who we are and allow love to empower our creations:

“With all the talk of war now, this post is very appropriate. Let’s remember who we are folks, we are all one.



Strangers Are Just Friends Who Haven’t Met Yet

“Touching Strangers, it’s the monograph taken by photographer Richard Renaldi ( that is slated to be released by the Aperture Foundation in Spring of 2014. In creating this work of art, Richard roamed the streets of New York City in search of random strangers that he would publicly bring together for intimate photos. As odd as this may sound, some of the end results revealed in this news story may truly amaze you… ”

“Many of you may have been already familiar with this news story or the work of Richard Renaldi as the video has been circulating the internet for over half a year now. I wanted to quickly share it now to share what parts of it truly stood out for me.

“In this world, especially I find in North America, so many of us have become so accustomed to becoming lost in our own world. We walk the streets of busy downtown cores or suburban shopping malls and we choose to isolate ourselves to our electronic devices or even more prominently the perpetual rush – the walk where any form of eye contact with a stranger is unwanted and desperately avoided. What I loved the most about the work of Richard Renaldi was that with each set of strangers that he brought together he directly challenged what so many of us define as comfortable. Even though many verbal and body cues initially showed a level of discomfort and/or nervousness for many involved, this not only quickly faded but never seemed to impact the genuineness of the captured picture.

“For me, this reminded me of the incredible interconnectedness that we all share with one another on the planet. I truly believe that as different as we may be, we all carry within us the ability to connect and be comfortable with even the most intimidating of “strangers.” Be sure to check out and stay posted to Richard’s website for more information on Touching Strangers once it is released. In the meantime be sure to share the video, which the news reporter summed up perfectly when he said,

…He shows us humanity as it could be, as most of us wish it would be, and as it was at least for this one fleeting moment in time. [Source]”

Another reader submitted this comment, with subject line, “This is so cool!”

“Hi, everyone, this is where we are actually going. I’ve been living in a neighborhood for over 3 years and have only met three people in the neighborhood. My next door neighbor and I share lawn mowing and snow duties. My other next door neighbor is rarely seen and even though I have cleared snow from his walk, in three years he has never done mine.

“This is the America most of experience in these times. If the SHTF tomorrow, we will either turn to each other or run the risk of perishing alone in our homes when the guy next door has a hydroponic farm in his basement that would feed everyone on the block. Get my drift?

“We have to travel in this direction (of making new friends often) even while recognizing that we are living the way the cabal have designed for us. And that should make us angry. Angry enough to shake hands with a stranger?

“Best regards, everyone

I know this world looks bleak to the logical mind, but what about to the human heart? What about to the artist’s inner eye? What about the potential for love and beauty? I had a dream the other week, and at the very end of the dream, someone handed me a lotus blossoming from the mud. As I accepted this lotus into my own hands the alarm beeped, anchoring that vision in my imagination. When I opened my eyes, I saw a pink rectangle of light hovering above my crystals — with no external source of that light. It lasted only a moment, but again, that rosy rectangle has anchored itself in my imagination as a window into a rosier world.

As Jon Rappoport reminds us:

“Many wonderful things can be done with logic. Don’t leave home without it. Don’t analyze information without it.

“But art and imagination are of another universe(s). They can deploy logic, but they can also invent in any direction without limit, and they can embrace contradiction. They can build worlds in which space and time and energy are quite different.

“Magic is nothing more and nothing less than imagination superseding this universe. Magic occurs when imagination takes this reality for a ride.”

What do you want to know?

As I embark on my new YouTube channel, as well as continuing this blog, I have some questions for you:

What do you want to know?

What topics would you like me to cover in more depth or in shorter, bite-sized chunks?

Why do you read my blog or watch my videos?

I am genuinely curious. Thanks for taking the time to let me know.

New Moon in Pisces ~ February 19-20, 2023

This New Moon occurs at 1°22′ Pisces. My February 2023 Forecast shared:

February 20 New Moon in Pisces at 2:06 a.m. Eastern. Less than an hour later, Venus enters Aries. The Sabian Symbol for this New Moon is “(PISCES 2°): A SQUIRREL HIDING FROM HUNTERS. … The need for SELF-PROTECTION and caution is ever present.” We normally think of Pisces as a sign of blurred boundaries and expansion, but today’s energies focus more on self than others. Venus rules Libra, the opposite of Aries, so even the Love Goddess pulls more into herself than partnering with anyone else. You can think of this New Moon as a form of “Put on your own oxygen mask first.” The negative side of Pisces invokes the martyr archetype, which goes beyond unconditional compassion into the realm of self-destructive sacrifice. In order to support people outside ourselves, we must first manage our own energy and resources.

January 21st’s New Moon in Aquarius previewed Pluto entering Aquarius on March 23, 2023, and this February 20th New Moon previews Saturn’s move into Pisces on March 7, 2023. The first half of this year brings major shifts in collective energies. The first two New Moon’s show how these changes could unfold longer term. If you don’t like what happens on or around February 20th, use that information to assess what you need to do between now and March. Given the Sabian Symbol, how’s your food supply? Do you need to squirrel away some extra nourishment?

Saturn‘s a planner and the Lord of Karma. How his 2023-2026 years in Pisces will affect you depends on your natal chart, but collectively, we can expect adjustments in the realm of spirituality and the need for spiritual practices. We could see a no-nonsense approach to lying and fraud, with punishment meted out for prior deception. The differences between pie in the sky promises vs. boots on the ground reality will become too obvious to ignore. We might also feel limitations in how much we can sacrifice ourselves for others. We’ll need to balance our compassion with practical concerns.

This New Moon is a good time to begin a yoga practice and/or start a dream journal. Saturn brings commitment. Anything previewed at this New Moon, then taking effect after March 7, likely has staying power. Saturn in Pisces can also help us to bring our dreams into reality. I created a video talking more about Saturn in Pisces, and you can find that here.

One other thing to keep in mind with Saturn in Pisces is potential water restrictions. We’re already seeing this possibility develop in the US as we approach the New Moon in Pisces. The train derailment and toxic explosion in Ohio could affect a lot of waterways. Saturn brings restrictions, so we’ll have to see how things unfold in the coming month and years. Fortunately, snowfall seems to be way up in the Sierras, easing drought conditions, but this poisoned water moving from Ohio could result in other restrictions.

We could also see structural issues (Saturn) with feet (Pisces). Treat those tootsies well!

At the time of this New Moon, Mars returns close to his position at the December 7-8th, 2022 Full Moon in Gemini. We can look back to that time period for more clues about our current need for preparation. In December, Mars, the planet of action, was Retrograde. So much information came forth between December 7th and January 6th. Even if we thought we knew what to “do” at that time, energies delayed actions. Now, Mars Direct passes that same spot. With the information now available, what actions do you feel called to take? How might these actions protect and empower you to live a fuller life?

This New Moon conjuncts asteroid Panacea at 3+ Pisces. Panacea brings healing through salves and balms. In mythology, she’s one of the five daughters of Asclepius, the Greek god of medicine. She’s sometimes called the “goddess of the cure” or “goddess of the universal remedy.” In a time of sudden deaths, mass disabilities, and general heartache, her presence bodes well. If you’ve been struggling, this New Moon offers an extra potent reset related to health.

On the negative side, Panacea in Pisces could also bring false hope, so do practice discernment. If mainstream anyone presents the one and only, all encompassing “cure,” do your own research rather than trusting without question. The New Moon advises us to tend to our own healing, reminding us that when we heal ourselves, we become stronger and more resilient for others.

The TNO Haumea trines from 0+ Scorpio. Haumea’s presence reminds us that birth pangs bring forth life. We do not labor in vain.

The centaur Elatus also trines the New Moon from 1+ Scorpio. According Zane Stein, “On Amable’s blog, Transneptunian Astrology, there is this interesting observation about Elatus: ‘Elatus has an incredible ability to escape from the most difficult situations, like Morfeo-Neo in the movie “The Matrix” (1999). But is more habitual that he flees before things get worse.'” Read the tea leaves, folks! If something feels off, trust your gut and dodge the bullet. We can learn to dance with these energies, but doing so requires presence. This is not a time to zone out.

I can’t overemphasize the significant astro shifts that start popping off next month. Use this New Moon and the coming weeks to address any lingering health concerns and shore up your inner and outer resources. Even good, longed for change brings stress. We cannot escape the approaching r/evolution, but preparing helps us to thrive instead of getting blindsided or swept away by Piscean floods. Lean into the spiritual, especially when the physical seems scary or uncertain. Saturn’s presence in Pisces shatters illusions but makes blind faith more tangible and real.

Happy New Moon in Pisces! Let’s paint ourselves a lovely world.

Synchronicity and Inner Guidance

This wants to go up again.

Laura Bruno's Blog

This post comes from a 2012 blog post that synchronously arose today after a dream about a huge sign, the need for a screen upon which to project a “movie” and a magical, un-containable rabbit. I decided to write it up as a separate post rather than reblogging because the end of the original post references things specific to that time period. The post itself seems just as relevant today as it did nearly 10 years ago:

Regular readers of my blog know that I’m a huge fan of synchronicity and “reading” signs. With a Masters Degree in English, I’ve simply expanded my definition of “text” to include this entire living, breathing Universe. I thought I’d share some perspectives on synchronicity and how it pertains to inner guidance, seeking and finding, and divination (specifically tarot).

“Synchronistic meetings are like mirrors that reflect something of ourselves. If we want to grow…

February 2023 Specials

Happy Imbolc! As always, I intuit which specials to offer, based on client requests, as well as astro transits.


Soul of a Relationship Special

February 2023 turns up the heat on relationships of all sorts, especially romantic relationships. This special looks at the soul purpose and soul history of one or more relationships. We can look at past life connections influencing this lifetime patterns. We can also explore why you’ve come into each other’s lives, your potential trajectories, and how relationships affect your health, vibration and receptivity to opportunities.

The reading aims for healing through greater understanding and compassion for all involved, including yourself! If you’re not having relationship challenges but would like more clarity on how to enjoy even more love and beauty from a connection, we can also explore from these angles.

This is a 20-minute reading for $77 instead of the usual $90, but you can double it to 40 minutes for $154 instead of the usual $177. Offer valid if prepaid on or before 2/28/2023. Please contact me to sign up.

2023 Astro Preview

This is the last month I’m offering this special (at least for a long while). I decided to continue it because March 2023 brings such radically different energies. February offers a chance to prepare for big shifts, and this includes looking at how 2023 astro shifts interact with your natal chart (who you are) and progresions (how you’re evolving). A 75-minute Astrology Reading with in-depth focus on supportive and challenging transits for you in the coming year. We’ll look at opportunities to expand into your soul’s purpose for being here now. We can also explore good time windows for action, rest, healing, and/or creating.

Learning to work with the energies already in play — in your natal chart and in the sky — helps you to create more realistic strategies and expectations. When you know the flavor of challenges on the way, you can choose to experience them on a higher or symbolic level, rather than getting blindsided by so-called “fate.” This reading also supports people who already know their goals for next year but want to know which time windows work best for which purposes.

As always, I will tailor these readings to the individual. $222 for an hour and a quarter (fifteen minutes free) if prepaid on or before 2/28/2023. Please contact me to sign up.
