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

New Moon in Pisces: March 13, 2021

March 13 brings a New Moon in Pisces at 5:21 a.m. Eastern US time. My March Forecast noted:

Pisces is the sign of the mystic. We can use this month’s reset to reaffirm our individual place within the bigger picture. As the poet Kabir said, “All know that the drop merges into the ocean, but few know that the ocean merges into the drop.” This New Moon conjuncts the Sun, Venus and Neptune, a heartfelt portal to bring dreams and fantasies to life.

In addition, the New Moon at 23 Pisces also conjuncts asteroid Iris at 20 Pisces and the Trans-Neptunian Object (TNO) Borasisi at 25 Pisces. In conjunction with Neptune at 20 Pisces, this cluster suggests a potential for revelations about deception. Of the major planets, Neptune rules the collective unconscious, dreams and higher spirituality, but also addictions, delusions and deception. Iris and Borasisi also deal with illusions and delusions — either their revelation or willful continuation. I don’t usually pay attention to these objects, but they caught my eye when I viewed a more detailed ephemeris.

Iris is Goddess of the Rainbow, a bringer of messages. According to http://darkstarastrology.com:

Like Mercury, Iris bridges two worlds, carries the Caduceus, and connects to the underworld. Iris is the marriage of water with air, since her father was a marine god and her mother a cloud nymph, she could travel through air and water with ease and is depicted with wings.

Asteroid Iris astrologically shows up liars through the element of water. This could be through cleansing, tears that well up out of nowhere or even alcohol. Iris is not really the one who punishes, that would be Jupiter’s and Juno’s job, but she is the goddess of revelation. In ones chart, Iris will show where you cannot succeed in lying.

According to http://alexasteroidastrology.com :

Borasisi is the name of the solar creation deity, also an actual sun of the fictional world, which forms the basis of a religious cult in Kurt Vonnegut’s 1963 novel “Cat’s Cradle.” The religion is a conscious collection of lies told to oneself in order to be happy, beliefs purposely adhered to although they are understood to be falsehoods. The themes of the book revolve around lies told in the name of religion, and the scientific quest for knowledge which threatens religious faith. The name Borasisi was given to a TNO, or Trans-Neptunian Object, in the Kuiper Belt region of the solar system, near Pluto.

Astrologically, Borasisi represents deception of all types, though especially those perpetrated by or in the name of religion. It relates to illusion and delusion, particularly conscious self-delusion, as well as the dangers of technological excess.

At the time of the New Moon, the Sun and Moon integrate light and dark, rational and intuitive — right in the middle of this cluster. If we lean into Venus as the Goddess of Love and Neptune’s expression of Higher Love, this gateway offers a huge opportunity for breaking through illusions and speaking the Truth in Love.

Asteroid Isis at 24 Pisces adds to the potential for healing through truth and integration. Isis is the Goddess of Motherhood and Healing. She gathers together all the pieces of her dead husband Osiris and brings him back to life in a different form. She represents powerful regeneration, Divine Feminine, Sacred Wisdom and Mystery.

How this potent conjunction from 19-25 Pisces plays out will depend on how consciously we interact with the energies. In a world that feels increasingly surreal, revelations could come, yet people still refuse to see that the Emperor has no clothes.

On the other hand, we can each pray for discernment. Open ourselves to seeing, speaking and hearing the Truth in Love. Allow ourselves to receive the dreamy New Moon energies and engage them in a healing, regenerative way.

As the storm clears, a rainbow appears.

My Very Own Technicolor Dreamcoat

Today features another roundabout blend of dreams into 3D-ality. This dream seems so symbolic on so many levels that I knew I would eventually share it. I did not expect to have it amped up by the Cosmic Costume Designer. Someone likes to get my attention by tickling my funny bone. The story begins back in August 2020 when I had the following dreams:

8/9/2020
“My Technicolor Dreamcoat”

In and out of sleep all night. Kept dreaming of large gatherings, parties, and I would receive an index card or a regular greeting card. Whenever I turned over or opened a card, Uranus would pop out. There would be a glyph of Uranus or an image. Message was big change on the way. _____ was also in the dream. She, too, was “relocating” and needing to sort through her life. Something about wallpaper selection.

Look up wallpaper in dreams since it was also in the owl/raccoon/shaman dream where the evergreens were down.

End of dream, I was sorting through my closet, wanting to give away clothes. I found a rainbow colored very long coat that I did not remember buying or wearing. I wanted to give it away but then realized it was REALLY valuable. It was my own version of Joseph and the Coat of Many Colors. Seems to be telling me my dreams are valuable. Do not discard the messages or the messenger.

Bible verse flip calendar: August 9: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.” ~ Isaiah 43:1-2

8/9/2020
(Later)
“It’s Time”

Fell back into quasi sleep with alarm set for an hour. Put Merlinite on solar plexus and asked for guidance. Dream state reviewed past day’s dreams and concluded, “It’s time.” Right at that moment the alarm went off.

END of dream journal.

Some Biblical Context:

For anyone wondering about the Bible verse flip calendar reference: sometime in 2020, dreams and synchronicities led me to order a little calendar that features a Bible verse a day. I keep this on the coffee table where I record my dreams into my dream journal and later type them into my laptop. It doesn’t always happen — but it often does — where flipping to that morning’s Bible verse either confirms my dream interpretation or provides additional context about a less clear dream. I use it as a synchronous, Biblical “gloss” for deeper dream analysis, and it works uncannily well.

Joseph and the Coat of Many Colors refers to a story I learned as a little girl in Sunday School. Others know this story from a Broadway Musical called “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.” Many of the Bible prophets dream, but Joseph is arguably the biggest dreamer in the Bible. I hadn’t thought of Joseph in a long time, but when I was little, whenever some of my dreams came true, my mom called me “Joseph” or she’d say, “Laura needs her coat of many colors.”

According to https://biblestudytools.com:

The Bible Story of Joseph, from the Book of Genesis, is one of heroic redemption and forgiveness. Joseph was the most loved son of his father, Israel [aka Jacob], given the famous robe of many colors. When Joseph reported having dreams of his brothers, and even the stars and moon, bowing before him, their jealousy of Joseph grew into action.  The brothers sold him into slavery to a traveling caravan of Ishmaelites who took him to Egypt and sold him to Potiphar, the captain of Pharaoh’s guard.

In Egypt, the Lord’s presence with Joseph enables him to find favor with Potiphar and the keeper of the prison.  With God’s help, Joseph interprets the dreams of two prisoners, predicting that one of them will be reinstated but the other put to death.  Joseph then interprets the dreams of the Pharaoh, which anticipate seven years of plenty followed by seven years of famine. Pharaoh recognizes Joseph’s God-given ability and prompts his promotion to the chief administrator of Egypt.

Shortage of food in Canaan forces Jacob to send his sons to buy grains from the Egyptians.  Benjamin, Joseph’s younger brother remains at home as Jacob fears losing him, as he did Joseph.  When Joseph finally encounters his brothers again, he deliberately conceals his identity. (More here, including the original Genesis 37.)

From a position of great power, Joseph faces his brothers again, the ones who sold him into slavery. As his dreams indicated, they now bow to him, needing his help, but not realizing who he is. He tests their character and eventually saves them from famine. He forgives them for selling him into slavery, acknowledging this experience as part of his life path.

“The life of Joseph gives a testament of the sovereignty and grace of God for those who live faithfully and righteously. Despite being sold into slavery by his brothers, Joseph remained faithful and trusted in God to deliver him from tribulation. Additionally, this story shows how God’s plan may not be obvious to our limited perspective but indeed ‘all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.'” (More here.)

In my dream, I saw the multicolored robe in my closet. It looked kind of ugly yet beautiful, funky and mysterious. I couldn’t recall buying it, and I almost tossed it into the donation pile. Recognizing it in the dream as my very own technicolor dreamcoat jolted me into an awareness of the value of these dreams, even the ones I don’t like. The appearance of a dreamcoat within a dream seemed like a powerful symbol just on its own. Like a megaphone yelling, “Attention: you have prophetic dreams. Pay attention! They contain valuable messages and insights.”

Now this post starts jumping around in non-linear dream fashion.

Birthday and Pholus context:

My sweet Faery Twin Tania Marie and my “Soul Bro” Mitch share the same February 26th birthday. This date happens to coincide with the Sun conjuncting my natal Pholus (small thing, BIG EFFECT). I have a very active Pholus in my natal chart, because it conjuncts my Mars and exactly sextiles my North Node. My small thing, BIG EFFECT trigger links directly to destiny level events and friendships.

On February 26, 2020, I had an emotionally brutal dream that took me a week to recover from. I remember the date because it happened to be Tania and Mitch’s birthday. The dream wasn’t a nightmare. It contained a detailed “suggestion” of how to handle — and a devastating “demonstration” of how NOT to handle — a coming challenge.

Many elements of that dream appeared in “real” life the following day and week, including that a client of mine shared a dream with overlapping details. This is one of several overlapping dreams we’ve shared in similar time frames, and whenever that occurs, I pay extra attention to the dream. I was already paying close attention due to the emotional intensity and vivid imagery, but seeing a literal billboard two days later with a verbatim key message of the dream, followed by having a client reiterate other dream symbols, marked this as a dream I needed to address.

I’ve spent a year plus of additional dreams, synchronicities and actions tending to the messages of that February 26, 2020 dream. Many, many, so many more dreams have since played out in “real” life.

Fast forward a year later to February 26, 2021, the Eve of the Full Moon in Virgo. This Full Moon occurred opposite my Pholus and Mars. In other words, the Sun highlighted my natal planet of action (Mars) and my Pholus (small thing, BIG EFFECT) as the Moon opposed them. In my write up about this Full Moon, I described a potent Yod (aka Finger of God) pointing to the Full Moon, with Saturn and Chiron as the base. I shared:

This setup suggests a powerful opportunity for healing, leadership, and mentoring. Chiron was not only a wounded healer; he raised Asclepius — the god of medicine — and taught him how to heal. Virgo is a sign of service, symbolized by the vestal virgin “keepers of the flame.” Chiron in Aries sextile Saturn in Aquarius focuses this devotion and healing around the rightful place of individuals within the larger community. This Full Moon highlights what we independently need for personal healing, in tension with changes to traditions and structures that support the greater good.

The Sun at 8°57′ Pisces offers a release point. Pisces evokes the bigger picture and a dissolution of ego. As much as we wrestle with the big questions, sometimes we need to ‘let go and let God.’ When in doubt, say a prayer and sleep on it!

The release point of the Full Moon Yod landed right between my natal Mars and Pholus — a potent activation.

That morning (February 26, 2021), I awoke with no dream recall, but instead, instructions to look up two dreams from January 2020. Searching for these dreams proved a jaw-dropping exercise, as I read through those and the surrounding dreams. I couldn’t believe how many seemingly random details of those dreams ended up playing out in precise ways, months, even more than a year later. Reading these dreams sparked a series of 12:34 synchronicities, including the alarm on our air fryer going off right at the moment I finished re-reading a 1234-dream-related email from January 2020.

Ding!

This happens more than you might think, where an alarm goes off right at a key moment, often related to dreams. (It even occurred on August 9, 2020, as described above.) On February 26, 2021, this caught my attention in a triple whammy way because of the double 12:34 plus alarm synchronicity, which followed an avalanche of confirmed precognitive dreams. The day continued in a magical way, and towards evening, something whispered, “Go on the Anthropologie website and check out their sales page. Right now.”

I went to the other room, got on my laptop and looked up the site. The first thing I saw on the “Freshly Cut” sales page was an exact replica of the dreamcoat I found in my dream closet! I mean exact.

“Open the link. Check it out.”

I looked at the “Pilcro Dreamer Striped Duster” and marveled at how it looked exactly like the mysterious technicolor dreamcoat I found in my August 9, 2020 dream. In case I had any doubts, “Dreamer” in the title confirmed the allusion. I hadn’t thought of that thing in months, but there it was! As in my dream, at first, I thought “Hmmmm, not sure how often I’d wear this.” It also seemed expensive, as items on Anthropologie often are. It was marked way down, but still more than I would pay for it.

“Put it in your cart. Go ahead. Just put it in your cart.”

That little nagging seemed insistent, so I added the Pilcro Dreamer Striped Duster to my cart. Then I did a double-take. The price dropped by another 25%.

Right then several people emailed me about the Full Moon, which reminded me of my Mars/Pholus activation. I emailed and texted a few people, including two I had told about the original dream:

Do you remember awhile back I had a dream about having a “technicolor dreamcoat” ? … Anyway, I had the dream about this distinctive technicolor dreamcoat, which is what Joseph — the dreamer who interpreted Pharaoh’s dreams — wore in the Bible. …

Several linked things led me to this site tonight that is normally crazy expensive, but sometimes I catch good sales. I landed on the exact coat from my dream! It was already marked down but ended up being even less than marked because they’re taking an additional 25% off sale items tonight. So! I bought myself the technicolor dreamcoat of my actual dream.

It’s ugly/cool/beautiful in a very boho way … but mostly, I had to get it because it’s so distinctive and EXACTLY like the coat I found in my closet in my dream. Of all the people I know … I should have one. My mom used to joke about this with me when I was little. To see this exact, very unusual thing available and on sale, after all the wild sync’s earlier today is … wow.

Also, today’s Bible verse flip calendar is:

“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything; tell God your needs, and don’t forget to thank him for his answers.” ~ Philippians 4:6

Um, thank you for the answers! Happy Full Moon!

At the time of the August 9 dream, I recognized this as a sign — “Wow, I have a technicolor dreamcoat in my dreams; that’s a message that I have prophetic dreams.” But to have it confirmed and appear, at half price, on the Full Moon whose release point is right between my Pholus and Mars … a coat of many colors, symbolic of the biggest prophetic dreamer of the Bible…

It’s beyond the beyond. I am SOOOOO grateful for the difference a year has made. So grateful for all of this, including the overall message of the Joseph story: “all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.

I wrote the Precognitive Blues Series to share some of the blessings and challenges of precognition, including dreams that often come true. I continue to receive some challenging messages through my dreams, but I feel so much better prepared for whatever and whenever the bigger dream themes collide with reality. I’ve also seen SUCH amazing blessings in dreams, and many of those have already occurred. The dreamcoat’s appearance seems to say the rest will, too.

I feel so much gratitude for my Dream Guys and for that Cosmic Costume Designer with a great sense of humor. If I were a Marvel character, dreaming would be my superpower and this would be my outfit:

Blessed Be … and be the blessing! Much love to all ….

Clairaudience, Clairvoyance, Clairsentience, and Claircognizance

This post wants up again.

Laura Bruno's Blog

This post began as “Precognitive Blues, Part 3: Astrology, Tarot, Synchronicity, and the Trickster.” My description of “The Clair’s” grew so long that it demanded its own post before Part 3 shows up. (I also discovered a Part 4, so that series will continue until I learn otherwise. You can find Part 1 here, and Part 2 here.)

By “The Clair’s,” I Mean:

Clairaudience: hearing sounds or words beyond “normal” frequency, usually with greater insights into the apparent reality. Telepathy and animal communication also fall under the heading of clairaudience.

In sessions, for me, clairaudience comes as a specific word, name or phrase, either right before the call, when I scan a client, or as the client speaks. Sometimes what they don’t say shouts much louder than their voice. Other times it comes to me as a kind of stage whisper or voiceover. When I bring up the…

March 2021 Specials

As always, I intuit which specials to offer each month. Given the amount of stress I’m hearing from people, I thought it was time to bring back the $77 Reiki Special. Stress suppresses immune function and makes life seem like a long, un-magical slog. Reiki not only eases stress, but it seems to smooth out the rough patches, opening people to living a more magical, synchronous life. Our unusual times offer a huge opportunity to level up. Reiki brings the energetic support to do just that.

The other special this month comes via multiple requests for it.

MARCH 2021 SPECIALS

$77 Reiki Special

Save $8 off the usual rate for an hour of long distance Reiki, an ancient healing method rediscovered in the 19th century by the Japanese monk Dr. Mikao Usui. The “Rei” in Reiki stands for “universal” or” spiritual,” and the “ki” corresponds to the “life force energy” known as “Chi” or “prana” in other Eastern systems of healing and energy work such as feng shui, Tai Chi, Qigong, or yoga.

Thus, Reiki refers to “universal life force energy,” “divinely directed healing energy,” or “life energy of a spiritual nature,” with an emphasis on subtle energy fields rather than the physical body. By working on all the different levels, Reiki helps the body to relax into a state that allows optimal self-healing. Reiki can clear negative energies, as well as empower and support intentions and events.

This session can be scheduled for a specific time delivery while you meditate or relax, or I can set the session for delivery while you’re in deep, receptive sleep. Depending on your needs, the hour can also get delivered during an important meeting, travel or other event.

Please contact me to sign up, and share (briefly) what you’d like to support, empower or heal. If you have specific timing in mind, please share that as well. $77 (instead of the usual $85) if prepaid on or before March 31, 2021. Please contact me to sign up.

Three For Two

So many requests for a repeat of this special! Here you go… Three hours for the price of two: save $222. This package can be used in whatever increments you choose — hour, 40-minute, half-hour, or 20-minute sessions — and for whatever services you’d like — Medical Intuition, Life Coaching, Astrology, Relationship Clarity, Soul Readings, or any other related service. $444 if prepaid on or before March 31, 2021. Please contact me to sign up.

March 2021 Forecast and First Quarter North Node Horoscopes

MARCH 2021 FORECAST

On March 3 or 4, depending on time zones, fiery Mars enters airy Gemini. Air feeds Fire. The command “March forth!” epitomizes the planet of action in vocal Gemini. These energies support courageous communication, positive affirmations, and empowerment through saying what must be said. Of all the signs, Gemini knows how to massage a message. We can expect active negotiations and movement towards long-delayed revelations, information, and understanding.

March 11-14 brings close conjunctions of the Sun and Venus with dreamy Neptune in Pisces. These days could feel extra romantic and artistic, or they could confuse boundaries and make us more prone to manipulation. We can leverage the positive aspects of this transit by meditating, receiving inspiration for creative projects, and beautifying our own sphere of influence. Compassion will run high, but pause and pray for discernment before giving away the farm!

March 13 brings a New Moon in Pisces at 5:21 a.m. Eastern US time. Pisces is the sign of the mystic. We can use this month’s reset to reaffirm our individual place within the bigger picture. As the poet Kabir said, “All know that the drop merges into the ocean, but few know that the ocean merges into the drop.” This New Moon conjuncts the Sun, Venus and Neptune, a heartfelt portal to bring dreams and fantasies to life.

March 15, Mercury joins the party in Pisces. In addition to communication, Mercury rules how you process information. Flowing inspiration blurs lines. Allow this process to unfold in its own cosmic way. Now is not the time for rigid thinking and expectations. You might find that “both/and” comes easier than choosing “either/or.” This and that are true — even if this and that create a paradox! Focus on timing instead of time. Fractals instead of linear thinking. With Mercury in Pisces, a higher order guides communication and discovery.

On March 20, the Sun enters Aries, followed by Venus on the 21st. Spring Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere heralds the start of a new astrological year. Whatever plans didn’t jump start with “March forth!” get another three-day span of fresh, active energy. This Aries energy gets fired up by all those planets in Aquarius. Again, Air feeds Fire. The sky now offers some “positive movement” sextile energy, easing the friction of Aquarius square Taurus that characterized January and February.

The March 28 Full Moon in Libra occurs opposite a tight conjunction of Sun, Venus and Chiron at 2:48 p.m. Eastern. This “Storm Moon” also occurs on Palm Sunday, which celebrates Jesus’ triumphant procession into Jerusalem. The joyful combo of Sun/Son, Goddess of Love and Beauty — conjunct Wounded Healer Chiron on a Full Moon, on the last Sunday before Easter — foreshadows the pietà. Read: exuberant joy, followed by grief, then some sort of resurrection. In the Christian tradition, Holy Week runs the full gamut of emotions. This Full Moon is exactly quincunx the rebel liberator Uranus in Taurus. It implies celebration, followed by an unexpected cleansing, redemption and healing. All tempered by Love.

We finish the month with Mercury conjunct Neptune in Pisces, and Venus in Aries sextile Saturn in Aquarius. These aspects go exact on the 30th. Pay special attention to intuition, synchronicities, and dreams — especially related to art, music, consensus reality, or romance.

How March’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.)

FIRST QUARTER 2021 NORTH NODE HOROSCOPES

ARIES NORTH NODE: The theme for First Quarter 2021 is finding a new balance of helping others and being helped. Your sign’s ruler, Mars, spent a record six month in Aries in 2020. That fiery energy activated destiny level shifts for Aries North Node natives. Now you need to ground those shifts into tangible, real world things. “Put your money where you mouth is” can mean literally funding your new venture, or it could mean “talk is cheap, get to work!” You might need to use some of your Libra South Node skills to negotiate financial support for a new idea or circumstance that puts you in a leadership role. In any case, you’ll want to pay more attention to the 3D steps to solidify whatever inspiration or passion ignited during the second half of 2020. This first quarter of 2021 brings a chance for healing, love, and rebirth. Hard work pays dividends.

TAURUS NORTH NODE: First Quarter 2021 urges unusual, innovative and unexpected upgrades in communication. This can include animals, Spirit Guides, and crystals, as well as cyberspace. Pay attention to sudden insights that arrive through friction or irritation. Your perceptions are high right now. If you feel the need for increased boundaries, build those into your daily life. Slow and steady movement on larger projects ensures you’ll still make progress, even if things take longer than you planned. “Delay leads to delight.” Allow for more time than you think you need. Pay attention to how spiritual forces impact your body. You might feel better implementing daily prayer or meditation, yoga or tai chi. Feel the flow of energy in your home, too. January through March encourages you to reorganize your closet or feng shui your home. Ask yourself if this stuff still feels like “you” or if you need an upgrade.

GEMINI NORTH NODE: Indulge your gift of the gab, and start writing! Whether in a journal, blog, letters or book, you need to express yourself during First Quarter 2021. Gemini North Node natives are learning to consider two or more sides to everything. New perspectives allow you to find love and community in unexpected places. Tell your story, and give yourself a happy ending. Then, continue balancing all the elements, so that you can keep walking forward, no matter how much you want to dig in your heels. Yours is one of the most magical North Node signs — if you allow yourself to recognize and receive the messages. The Universe, God, angels, and animals all love to communicate with those who have “eyes to see and ears to hear.” You can heal yourself and others by opening to wonder. Life is complex and beautiful. Follow synchronicity and embrace the Mystery.

CANCER NORTH NODE: You don’t need to do it all yourself! First Quarter 2021 asks you to focus on partnership and nurturing. You might feel off kilter from all the external drama in January, but take a moment to assess if anyone’s really getting hurt. Your Capricorn South Node likes order and a certain amount of tradition. The new energies in rebel Aquarius can rock foundations. You’ll feel better as you move from judgment into feeling. It’s OK to feel afraid sometimes. Expressing your vulnerable side lets others know you’re in this together. When you express your own need for support, you find the security you seek. Not by being perfect, but by connecting with those you love. Aquarian energy has an outward focus, yet you thrive by tending to your own family, home and private sphere. The world will sort itself out — or not. Life rewards you for soft touches, womb-like cocoons, and gentle words and tones.

LEO NORTH NODE: Maturation is the name of the game with so many planets moving through your South Node sign of Aquarius. Whenever multiple planets cross your South Node, old acquaintances and familiar patterns vie for your attention. Take some time to assess where you’ve been, so that you can feel more satisfied with wherever you feel led. Going along to get along won’t serve you anymore. You need to get in touch with whatever makes your heart sing. First Quarter 2021 asks you to embrace the Divine Feminine. Her energy might come through the January 28 Full Moon in Leo, your own enhanced intuition, or an energizing chat with a female friend. Watch for new opportunities, especially if they arise through seeming friction or irritation. Instead of roaring in frustration, cultivate some catlike curiosity. Position yourself to pounce on unexpected solutions, including financial windfalls.

VIRGO NORTH NODE: The big First Quarter event for Virgo North Node natives is the February 27 Full Moon in Virgo. You’ll get more out of this transit if you prepare yourself ahead of time. Spend some time in quiet retreat. 2021 would be a great time to commit to a daily spiritual practice. Regular meditation, yoga or scheduled time in prayer helps you to welcome spiritual support into daily life. “Commitment” is your power word this year. Use January to get clear, and then find ways to solidify your devotion. This integration of mystical inspiration with practical steps allows you to thrive no matter what happens around you. Reach for the light at the end of the tunnel, knowing you can make your way there, step by careful step. Focus on the scenery as you make your way to any bigger picture goal. Those little jewels bring so much wealth and beauty to your journey. “God is in the details.” ~Ludwig Meis van der Rohe

LIBRA NORTH NODE: Focus on “Forgiveness” during First Quarter 2021. Forgiving yourself and others frees you to move more fully and joyfully into the Now. Ask yourself, “What old wounds, resentments or battles can I release in order to make room for something better?” Because something better wants to find you. Your astro climate changed on Winter Solstice. Supportive Aquarian energies offer release after years of pressure. Leaning into this innovative and cooperative zeitgeist will help you transcend isolated or lone wolf tendencies. Look for unconventional, yet practical solutions to problems. Old tools used in new ways. Anger can turn to frustration, depression — or determination. Practice choosing where and how to direct your feelings. You can harness the energy of raw emotions as rocket fuel for living a more magical life. Things flow better for you when you partner with others, including invisible helpers and unusual friends. Begin to explore how Loving Connection forms the fabric of the Universe.

SCORPIO NORTH NODE: Yours is one of the most intuitive of the North Node signs. Your feelings run deep, and sometimes fear limits you from flying. Your Taurus South Node wants security, proceeding step by little step, but your life path involves quantum leaps and regeneration. Pay attention to timing during First Quarter 2021. Yes, you’ll feel some occasional traffic jams and roadblocks from all the planets in Aquarius and Taurus, but don’t give up on opportunities. “No” might simply mean “not yet.” It might also mean, “No, not this: something so much better!” Allow yourself to recognize your need and desire for intimacy, deep sharing, and the ability to move through raw emotions. You’ll experience greater calm and clarity as you realize that “This, too, shall pass” doesn’t only mean loss. As the zodiac’s alchemists, Scorpio North Node natives can turn metaphorical lead into gold. “Transmutation” is your word for First Quarter 2021. Find a creative outlet for all that energy.

SAGITTARIUS NORTH NODE: The collective South Node continues making its way through your North Node sign. This tension between old and new, collective and personal increases the importance of perfect timing. Don’t let delays dim your faith. Powerful Aquarian energies support you now. Aquarius Air fans Sagittarius fire. You might feel this as heartwarming connections with friends, both old and new. You could also find yourself supercharged and renewed by philosophical, religious or scholarly ideas. Explore ways to bring more of this passion into everyday life. Knowing something feels different than thinking about something. Focus on knowing. Strong beliefs ignite and expand your outer world experience. Be bold. Your soul needs big adventures. If 3D world travel restrictions feel too tight, then open your mind and heart to inner travel. You’ve got a great mind and powerful intuition. Practice integrating these competing sides of yourself. When in doubt, pray. Ask for Divine Guidance and follow where it leads.

CAPRICORN NORTH NODE: What wisdom can you extract from the last three years? Looking backwards at the beginning of a year helps you get grounded before building something big. Use the First Quarter to nurture your body, assess finances and appreciate the bounty you’ve gathered in all areas of life. You’ve worked hard, Capricorn! With a better sense of where you’ve been, prepare to prune anything out of alignment with the direction you feel led to grow. Keep plans close to your vest. You do better not telegraphing your every move. Hearing too much commentary weakens your resolve, because you empath other people’s fears and emotional reactivity. If you seek more clarity, then a journal or life coach may serve you better than a well meaning, but dream crushing friend or family member. You can climb literal and metaphorical mountains. Sometimes the journey feels hard. Refresh yourself by swimming in an alpine lake — or with an at home spa day — then keep going. Life rewards your determination.

AQUARIUS NORTH NODE: Although transition remains a long, slow process, we officially entered the Age of Aquarius on Winter Solstice 2020. First Quarter 2021 brings powerful activation for Aquarius North Node natives. You might not realize it, but you’re in your element. Focus on unusual guidance and lightning bolt insights. Sometimes life will feel chaotic, like you’ve jumped on the back of a wild horse. Other times, you’ll feel the slow, stabilizing force of traditional Saturn in liberating Aquarius. Embrace changes that feel urgent or deeply necessary, but don’t force yourself to work too hard. When big planets move through your North Node sign, the “open door, closed door” effect becomes more obvious. Stop banging your head against closed doors. Something will open for you, and it will do so right on time. Once things get going, destiny will pull you along. You just need to cultivate balance and ground the energy pulsing through you. Record your ideas, whether in a journal or on your phone. Inspiration will strike. These moments are fleeting yet powerful. Harness them.

PISCES NORTH NODE: “Creative daydreaming” is your phrase for First Quarter 2021. Before you commit to anything, make sure it feels soft, nurturing and/or magical. Yours is the dreamiest North Node sign. The collective nodal axis continues to square your North and South Node signs. This can feel like friction or restriction. Try not to get bogged down in details. You don’t need to plan everything ahead of time. In fact, planning too much slows you down. If something seems delayed, go back to the dreaming board. Literally ask your dreams to help you find and live your most beautiful and inspired life. Spend time in mystical pursuits: prayer, chanting, even a good soak in the tub. Add some candlelight and Chopin — whatever it takes to bring mind chatter to a minimum. Your Spirit merges into Oneness whenever you let go. From this womblike connection flow all the elements of creative life.

February 27, 2021 Full Moon in Virgo

At 3:17 a.m. Eastern on February 27, we have a Full Moon in Virgo, closely trine Uranus in Taurus. These Earth signs offer a chance to ground electric, emotional energy into something tangible. Pay attention to sudden insights and inspired solutions.

2/27/2021 3:17 a.m., Kalamazoo, MI

This Full Moon at 8°57′ Virgo forms the apex of a Yod — aka Finger of God — formation with Chiron in Aries and Saturn in Aquarius as the base of the isosceles triangle. (You can see the green lines pointing to the Moon, and the blue line connecting Saturn and Chiron, which is the glyph that looks like a black key, as the base.)

Yod’s create huge tension and a divine mandate. Formed of two quincunxes and a sextile, they demand integration of signs with nothing overt in common.

This setup suggests a powerful opportunity for healing, leadership, and mentoring. Chiron was not only a wounded healer; he raised Asclepius — the god of medicine — and taught him how to heal. Virgo is a sign of service, symbolized by the vestal virgin “keepers of the flame.” Chiron in Aries sextile Saturn in Aquarius focuses this devotion and healing around the rightful place of individuals within the larger community. This Full Moon highlights what we independently need for personal healing, in tension with changes to traditions and structures that support the greater good.

Asteroid Hybris conjuncts Saturn at 8° Aquarius, suggesting a need for moderation. Hybris — from which we get the word hubris — takes things too far. Beware of overconfidence or “reading your own press release.” We each have roles to play in the complex reality unfolding before and within us. Leadership and expertise in one area does not mean perfection in all areas! With knit picky Virgo as the Yod’s apex, our minds can joust with emotions, ego, resistance and innovation. Sometimes Virgo gets overwhelmed by too many details that don’t make sense.

The Sun at 8°57′ Pisces offers a release point. Pisces evokes the bigger picture and a dissolution of ego. As much as we wrestle with the big questions, sometimes we need to “let go and let God.” When in doubt, say a prayer and sleep on it!

I love the Sabian symbol for this Full Moon. (Always round up for Sabian Symbols.):

PHASE 159 (VIRGO 9°): AN EXPRESSIONIST PAINTER AT WORK.

KEYNOTE: The urge to express one’s individualized sense of value regardless of tradition. (See more here.)

According to The Collector, “Expressionism was characterized by broad brush strokes, bright color pops and abstract styles. It aimed to express rather than depict physical reality. … Expressionism as an art movement can be very broad and difficult to characterize. It spans across different countries, mediums, movements and periods. Expressionist art was therefore not defined by a set of aesthetic principles, but rather as a tool of expression and societal commentary.”

Sounds like the tense Yod and Uranus trine of this Virgo Full Moon! If you feel like Edvard Munch’s “The Scream,” …

“The Scream,” by Edvard Munch, 1893

… remember to lean into that Pisces Sun release point. Sometimes it takes a little”Fish Magic.”

“Fish Magic,” by Paul Klee, 1925

Just as Edvard Munch and Paul Klee were both Expressionist painters, with any astrology forecast, we can choose to engage these energies in different ways. Dane Rudhyar echoes this idea at the end of the Sabian Symbol for Virgo 9:

“But there is a great difference between being an origin of development pregnant with futurity, and deliberately sought for ORIGINALITY.”

Thou Art That — yet also This.

One Week Left

Just a heads up, these specials will change for March:

Intuitive Preparedness Check-In

With all the political, social and personal upheaval, people keep asking me how to maintain a positive, proactive vibration and how to thrive while also shoring up any weak spots.

Those looking to make larger lifestyle shifts can ask me to scan various lifestyle, location and/or community options to see which ones fit best with your vibration and heart’s desires.

You can also use our time together to discuss energetic/magical protection and manifestation tools and techniques, along with troubleshooting your most pressing concerns in various areas of life, including finances, food security, faith/spirituality/soul nurturing, relationships and/or land, including “garden guidance.”

Theatre of the Absurd

This morning, I stumbled on this very old post, back from David’s birthday in 2012. It struck me how similar the energies feel right now. So absurd on the one hand — and with so much beautiful potential and liberation on the other. David and I drove to an appointment with our accountant this morning, a mundane task, yet we saw a huge and beautiful sun dog (rainbow around the sun) on the way there. The morning ended up being lots of fun, and we recounted how grateful we’ve been and are to keep finding these moments of delight, these “lucky breaks” and wonder-full experiences.

Reality becomes more malleable during chaotic times. Yesterday marked the first of three exact squares of Saturn to Uranus this year. A time of unpredictability and potential chaos — yet also a time to liberate revamped ideas and new paradigms.

I wasn’t going to reblog this, but it came up in a session, had some synchronous whammies, and my client encouraged me to put it out there. Multiple realities exist in EVERY moment. There are ALWAYS ways to thrive, whatever life throws your way. There are always ways to shift into a different perspective and a different experience.

Blessings and love to all …

Dear Spectacle:

You are now far too distorted to resemble even a hint of reality, not even 3Dality. I’m walking out of your show, and you can keep my playbill. Some people enjoy the mind games and this peculiar type of drama, but it’s not really my cuppa tea.

Speaking of tea, I’ll be having some tea. And cake. Raw chocolate birthday cake with my dearest love. If any actors, producers or puppeteers need me I’ll be away with the faeries. At least their Rules make sense:

“No Rudeness.
Respect, not Control.
A person’s word is bond.”

I bid you adieu and leave you to your deus ex machina.
