Mastering Modern Midlife with Catherine Grace O’Connell and Laura Bruno

For those who missed this interview the first time around, Catherine and I talk a lot about Lyme disease and the healing process and blessings during chronic illness or severe injury. As so much of the world is suddenly experiencing what many people with long term health crises experience — isolation, loss of income, uncertain future — I thought I’d repost the interview. It may speak to people who hadn’t considered themselves in that category before.

As I explain in my write-up, I needed to be very careful with my energy for this video. Anyone who knows me in person knows I’m usually much more animated. I was just trying really hard not to short out their equipment a second time!

Blessings and healing …

Time Dreams and a Podcast

These time dreams from February 6th are making more sense as we collectively sit in a time-out scenario —where nothing and everything changes in a slow journey across a wide road. The dreams came to my attention again today with another time stretching dream, followed by John Lennon’s “Instant Karma” running through my head:

“And we all shine on, like the moon and the stars and the sun…” .

I wanted to bring attention to Ann Kreilkamp’s ARKCroneCast Updates, her new podcast available to Patreon subscribers. The subscription levels are only $5, $10 or $20 per month, well worth it, imho. Ann brings over 40 years as an astrologer, plus 77 years of extraordinary living. I especially enjoyed her latest, Number 11, called “Trust.” She discusses this theme in context of Saturn and Pluto types of trust, and I found it perfectly synchronized with this morning’s dreams.

I left those dreams as a comment on her site, but I’ll share them here, too. I highly recommend this podcast to anyone feeling a huge disparity between right and left brain messages. I know many people keep receiving vivid dreams and visions that seem so real, yet so unrelated to current life circumstances. Ann’s podcast shares different levels of trust, and why this theme seems so “up” right now…

March 22, 2020 North Node Horoscopes are up!

Catherine and I continue to aim for a 22nd date release of these North Node Horoscopes. You can read them here. This month’s focus on ways to find your silver lining amidst change and crisis. They have more of an “everyone” slant than the more usual “midlife female” angle for Catherine’s main audience.

I’ll repeat here what I shared last month:

If you don’t know your North Node sign, Catherine’s got a table on her site to tell you. Those of you who happen to know both your North Node sign and its house will also find value looking up the corresponding sign for that house:

1st House North Node = Aries North Node similarities

2nd House North Node = Taurus North Node similarities

3rd House North Node = Gemini North Node similarities

4th House North Node = Cancer North Node similarities

5th House North Node = Leo North Node similarities

6th House North Node = Virgo North Node similarities

7th House North Node = Libra North Node similarities

8th House North Node = Scorpio North Node similarities

9th House North Node = Sagittarius North Node similarities

10th House North Node = Capricorn North Node similarities

11th House North Node = Aquarius North Node similarities

12th House North Node = Pisces North Node similarities

For example, if you have a Leo North Node in the 12th house, your primary North Node Horoscope would be Leo, but you’ll also find guidance in the Pisces North Node information. The beauty of North Node horoscopes is that you can usually calculate the sign without an exact birth time, and the sign is always super relevant to your life path. As with anything in astrology, though, the more exact time you have, the more subtle information you can glean. (Just a little tip to pull more from these monthly North Node Horoscopes.)

A Message of Hope

I wanted to share this loving, hopeful message from my sweet Faery Twin, Tania, who peeked out of her online sabbatical just to share this message. Much love!

Although I still intend to continue with my sabbatical, I received the strong message to peek out briefly on today’s Spring/Autumn Equinox portal (depending on which hemisphere you’re in) to extend my heart and voice to the collective in this challenging time. I’ll write more when I officially return, but for now I’ll say that I find it fascinating something nudged me to retreat nearly three months ago, and I am understanding more of what that meant now. For one, it has allowed me to anchor a stronger frequency of inner clarity and peace, which has helped prepare the way for what we are collectively now experiencing.

Although I may have a different way of navigating things, I know that we will each experience things relative and valid to our journey and there is no judgment in that. What I do believe is that for those of you who feel…

This poem so busted me today! LOL, had to share …

Laura Bruno's Blog

Tripping over Joy

What is the difference
Between your experience of Existence
And that of a saint?

The saint knows
That the spiritual path
Is a sublime chess game with God

And that the Beloved
Has just made such a Fantastic Move

that the saint is now continually
Tripping over Joy
And bursting out in Laughter
And saying, “I Surrender!”

Whereas, my dear,
I’m afraid you still think

You have a thousand serious moves.

Taking a Breath: Spiritual Care for Intense Times

Excellent advice from Dana! I, too, feel “the problem is the solution” is a good way of navigating life.

The Druid's Garden

To say that this hasn’t been an easy week for anyone in North America, Europe or in many places around the globe is an understatement. Between what is happening in work life, school life, and political life, the situation is difficult to navigate.  I’ve talked to many friends and family who are feeling overwhelmed, lost, panicked, and fearful about the near future. So today’s post is about taking a breath.  Its times like these that I am thankful for my druid practice, thankful for the healing nature provides, and thankful for the lessons of spirit.  Let’s take a breather today, now, in this space and time, and talk through a few spiritual self-care practices that can help in times of high stress, anxiety, and intensity.  I have three kinds of suggestions that have helped me get through this week–embracing nature, embracing spiritual practices, and embracing the bardic arts.

Embrace Nature

Ringing in a New Decade and a New Earth

I’m reblogging this New Year’s post for today’s Full Moon at 20 Virgo, because the post includes dreams that specifically mentioned “20 Virgo.” This morning, I awoke from two more dreams featuring “addresses” in Virgo, for which I looked up the Sabian Symbols. One of these led me down the rabbit hole of the Slavic Goddess Dziewanna — a Goddess of Spring Equinox.

I haven’t had time to fully unpack this morning’s dreams and how they cycle back to older dreams of similar theme, but I have had multiple, extremely vivid dreams of a woman in a bright green dress, walking amidst death like Spring coming from Winter. Sometimes she’s pregnant, like The Womb installation of this New Year’s post. As we approach this time of year in the Northern Hemisphere — and as the world reels from fear and confusion related to the Coronavirus, this message felt important to share again.

Happy Full Moon at 20 Virgo! May our journey together be fruitful.

I’ve had so many potent dreams — even more so than usual. A recent one, I called “Nurture Tenderness,” involved “six agreements” whose enactment would bring in the New Earth frequencies. The first of those agreements was “Nurture Tenderness.” I decided to share a little more here as we close out 2019 and enter 2020, because Tania mentioned how my dream reminded her of Lee Harris’ 2020 Energy Forecast, recorded 12/12/19, but which she just posted today. He, too, lists six themes, which coincide with so many of my recent dreams. From Lee’s YouTube channel:

Themes discussed in the 2020 Energy Forecast include:

BLINDING CLARITY (Intuition/Truths + Truth-Telling/Mental Re-arrangement)

RISE OF LOVE THROUGH DEATH AWARENESS (The death of people/relationships/animals/nature/systems)

COLLABORATION AND TEAMS (The Upswing of people coming together to collaborate and work with each other)

GROUNDING VIA NATURE (The technology take-off/distraction of attention being leveled through Nature but…
