Powerful Full Moon in Pisces

The Moon entered Pisces at 5:52 a.m. Eastern US Daylight Savings Time. I hadn’t planned to write about the coming powerful Full Moon in Pisces, but a beautiful dream, client sessions, and so many synchronicities urged me to give everyone a heads up. As the Moon makes its way through this sign of dreams, mysticism and intuition, pay particular attention to dreams (awake, asleep and especially somewhere in between wakefulness and sleep).

In the early morning hours of Wednesday, September 11, I awoke from the most amazing dream. I wanted to go back to sleep, because I’ve been in a period of high strangeness, little sleep and major insights. I felt well rested and whole when I awoke, but I wanted to roll over, feel into the deliciousness of the dream and go right back to sleep. Instead, I received the persistent message to get up and record the dream in an email to a friend, but to send the email to myself instead of the friend so that I had the timestamp.

Odd instructions, right? And hey, if I’m not even sending the email to the person it’s addressed to, why can’t I just write it when I wake up in the morning. I would NOT forget this dream. It’s one of those dreams that stays with you — that you return to again and again. At least, that’s how it felt to me. I’ve had a few of those in my lifetime, and they continue to inspire a sense of awe and wonder whenever something triggers me to recall them.

I tried to ignore the message to get up, because I really wanted to sleep and just “be” in the dream. I rolled onto my side, but the message came stronger. The image of the dream played over and over in the background like a silent and holy soundtrack. Major synaesthesia (blending of senses — color of sound, vibrational harmony) pervaded my awareness, but that annoying voice overlay wouldn’t let me back into the silence: “Get up now. Record the dream. Email it to yourself.” Over and over like a nagging child pulling at the fringes of my brain. Arggh! Those Dream Guys never quit. Just write the damn thing so you can get some sleep. After five or ten minutes of this annoyance –still overlaid with the beauty and harmony of the dream scene, which kept replaying itself — I went to my office and dutifully sat in the dark, in front of my laptop.

Here’s what I wrote: Continue reading

Opportunity to Reboot

Astrology mentor, permaculturist and friend Ann Kreilkamp just reminded me via email about the unusual lineup this coming Solstice (Winter in the Northern Hemisphere, Summer in the Southern Hemisphere), 12/21/18. “Sol-” “Sun” “-stice” “still” effects last three days, so the Full Moon on 12/22/18 still activates those Solstice energies. I love the numbers, too! “The 1221 meaning is to begin again and to strive forward. It represents your inspirations and initiatives” (more here) . The Full Moon date has a 222 embedded in it, reminding us to keep the faith. Don’t dig up the seeds too soon; just because we can’t see it doesn’t mean they aren’t sprouting in the soil. Soil/Soul … Sol/Soul. This is a deeply soulful and potent time. As Ann put it in this morning’s email:

Solstice with Full Moon 0° Cap/Cancer, can you believe?

Ah yes, and this year’s Winter Solstice with the Full Moon, which happens only every 19 years, on the average. Any zero degrees New or Full Moons on the Solstices or Equinoxes contacts the Aries point (0* Aries), node of brand new beginnings for the entire zodiacal cycle to come, at every level. Re-booting the human hard drive to choose peace, prosperity, and abundance, in cooperation with each other and Nature. Let’s shoot for that. Shoot for the stars.

David and I have already been sensing the reboot energy. This Friday marks two years of marriage for us. Last year at this time, David had recently quit his job in Goshen in order to seek employment in Kalamazoo. Although David’s joking texts with our friend Tim Martin revealed eerie precognition of David’s new career, on Winter Solstice 2017, we had no idea what he’d be doing. We just knew he needed to take that leap of faith.

December 16, 2017 brought the shocking, traumatic, and in retrospect, perfectly timed passing of the same friend Tim. We learned about it on 12/17/17 when Tim’s ex-wife and daughter managed to get his cell phone to call me. I posted a tribute to Tim and have referenced him on occasion. He remains “active,” still a dear and helpful friend across the veil.

Yesterday brought some synchronous repetition of memorable things I did on 12/17/17. I always find it fascinating when life cycles in obvious ways. By comparison/contrast, it provides undeniable evidence of growth and change. Instead of shock and grief, yesterday, David and I experienced multiple periods of extreme gratitude and satisfaction. This included David’s career for which he began interviews last Winter Solstice. The past twelve months brought so much healing and internal change to me. When I compare who I am now with who I was a year ago, I feel grounded, secure, clear and grateful in exponentially deeper ways.

This year, we have some quiet celebrations planned, as the cosmic alignments mirror our own feeling of reset. David tells me his word for 2019 is “Cruise,” as in “we’ve hit cruising altitude after a long ascent.” Mine is “Thrive.” In these last days of 2018, and during this powerful 0° Full Moon Solstice, I wish you clarity, peace and joy. The Wheel of the Year reminds us that all things change. Just like the Seasons of the Earth, there is life in death, and death in life. At this still point of the Sun … Peace.

Activation

I walked into my office this afternoon to find “Arthur,” my crystal writing muse, positively glowing.

This is an untouched photo of the afternoon sun hitting an angle I’ve never seen before. Good sign, eh?

Also a quick reminder that Wednesday’s the last day to sign up for February Specials: “Creative Jump-Start” and/or the “Reiki Master Teacher Certification Special.” I’ve certainly experienced a creative jump-start this month. The Metaphysics of Lyme Disease book continues to light up with a new structure, expert contributors, and 40,000 words added since February 1.

Wishing everyone creativity and radiant joy as we move into March with Thursday’s glowing Full Moon.

Happy New Year + Context for This 2018 Shift

David and I are still busy here hosting my mom and contemplating our own pivotal 2017, with continued major shifts into 2018. Last New Year’s Eve, David and I drove to Kalamazoo from Goshen, IN for a mini-honeymoon at the Radisson, enjoying Kalamazoo’s First Night Celebration. I posted about our experiences here.

What I did not share was how we had reserved our 2016 holiday letter for mailing from the post office in Kalamazoo last New Year’s Eve. We did so with the strong, full intention that we would be living here next (this) year at this time. We felt magic in that symbolic action, and every time we pass that post office, we celebrate the results.

Here we are, and what a whirlwind year it’s been! We have so much gratitude and awe for how everything transpired, and the volume of physical work it took to make it so. For us, 2017 was very much about bringing ideas into tangible actions, step by step into the new. We expect 2018 to continue that trend but in a more expansive and even more grounded and disciplined way.

I don’t have time today to write a long post about the coming energies, but for those wanting more context, I’ll include the following links (and sometimes links within links). I do want to note three significant factors: Continue reading

Writing Update: Even my owl knows it’s writing month

From friend, Karen, via last night’s “Your owl” email:

“Turned the page in the paper and there he was! Happy writing month to you.”

IMG_1521

Thanks to everyone who’s sent encouragement, writing care packages and little sync winks. 😉 The characters in this paranormal historical fiction novel have already made me bust out laughing and then start sobbing a few pages later. In other words, the wild ride of novel writing has officially begun. I will continue with a full load of phone sessions this month, but no email sessions. You can also expect fewer blog posts in November, as I focus most of my writing energy on developing characters, scenes and themes.

My Taurus hubby begins full time Kalamazoo living as of this evening, so we have lots of shifts in store. Tomorrow’s Full Moon in Taurus adds particularly apt and potent energies to the mix. Wishing you and yours big opportunities, the vision to recognize them, and the courage to act.

Cheers!

Timothy Glenn ~ Lunar Explorations

He’s ba-a-a-ck! After his last post rocked many a worldview, Timothy Glenn returns as promised to discuss the moon and its influence. How to introduce this post? Hmmm … here’s what Tim said in his email to me:

“The moon is currently part of our experience. We can learn to deal with it, work around it, or even utilize it without surrendering to its influence. The suggestion here is to exercise vigilance so as to make informed choices. Again we swing back to Carl Gustav Jung: ‘Don’t fight forces, use them.’”

“The only thing you can ever know for sure, is that you can never know anything for sure.”

And with that intro, here’s Timothy Glenn:

 

Lunar Explorations

Let’s explore theories of the origin and nature of the moon. Indigenous peoples and ancient writers have spoken of the time before the Earth had the moon. She was inhabited by humans, who passed on their remembrances of life on Earth when there was no such thing as the moon we now have.

The July 1970 edition of the journal Sputnik featured an article by Russian scientists Mikhail Vasin and Alexander Shcherbakov: Continue reading

Timothy Glenn ~ Eclipsing Our Reality

This just in from astrologer, numerologist and author, Timothy Glenn, along with a short note/trigger warning:

 

Eclipsing Our Reality

By Timothy Glenn

We have been hearing lots of hubbub around the subject of the August 2017 eclipses, the opening of the lion’s gate, and especially the anticipated impact of the August 21st total solar eclipse on the United States.

First there will be two warm up exercises. Depending on where you are on the planet, the lunar eclipse will occur at 15 degrees Aquarius on August 7th or 8th. This will be followed by the Perseid meteor shower, which will peak on August 12th. These events will set the stage for the main attraction.

As the meteor shower is ending, Continue reading
