Full Moon in Libra ~ March 28, 2021

My March 2021 Forecast noted:

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.

Two other players join the mix: Trans-Neptunian-Object (TNO) Logos conjunct the Full Moon in Libra, and Asteroid Kassandra conjunct the Sun, Venus and Chiron in Aries.

Logos means “The Word” and represents rational thought, Truth and Order, as well as “the rational motivation behind something.” (More on Logos here.) I find this an interesting conjunction with the typically irrational Moon. The idea of Truth and Order also brings nuances with the sign Libra symbolized by the balanced scales of Justice.

In Greek mythology, Kassandra (or Cassandra) was a priestess of Apollo who spoke true prophecies that no one believed. This curse hurt both Kassandra and those who refused to listen to her warnings. Conjunct Venus, the Sun and Chiron, this Kassandra placement could shine love, light and healing on previously discarded prophecies. On the other hand, the wound and isolation (Chiron) of speaking a truth that no one believes (Kassandra) could increase by glossing over truth with just a superficial (Venus) nod.

Astrology reveals the archetypes and their alignments, but as with any party, we cannot know for sure how all the guests will behave! We can say with certainty that this Full Moon brings potential for healing by speaking the Truth in Love. Energies favor logical explanations for feelings, and revealed prophecies in context of a triumphant return.

If you’re the black sheep of your family and want to reconnect, this might be a good weekend to try. It would also be a good time for journaling, forgiveness of self and others, and turning towards the past for inspiration. The Sabian Symbol for this Full Moon is:

PHASE 189 (LIBRA 9°): THREE “OLD MASTERS” HANGING ON THE WALL OF A SPECIAL ROOM IN AN ART GALLERY.

KEYNOTE: The need to return to source during a confused search for new value in a chaotic society. (More here.)

The connection to an art gallery jumped out at me, because the February 27, 2021 Full Moon in Virgo also dealt with art, in that case “AN EXPRESSIONIST PAINTER AT WORK.” The Full Moon in Libra focuses on “‘OLD MASTERS’ hanging on the wall of a special room in an art gallery.” To me, this speaks of creation and progression. Not just any old artists, but “old masters” from whom new artists (or leaders) can draw inspiration and create new forms tied to old ones.

This honoring of art and old masters fits well with the energies of 2021’s main astrological signature — Saturn in Aquarius square Uranus in Taurus.

Collectively, we feel tensions between tradition and revolution. With each planet in signs the other would feel more comfortable in, this tension could play out as paradox. Sometimes people rebel by being more traditional, not less. Sometimes revolutionaries push for change that leads to greater, not fewer restrictions. Not all revolutions bring freedom. Not all coups bring oppression. This jousting between old and new, progressive and conservative, innovative and traditional runs all year, and in complex ways.

We can’t expect easy answers, but this Full Moon could encourage more balanced discussion. Perhaps Logos will temper some of the lunar emotional flare-ups.

In his Sabian Symbol for Libra 9, Dane Rudhyar goes on to note: At this fourth stage of the thirty-eighth sequence it is suggested that in the process of “Transfiguration” the presence of the greatest moments of the past is called upon, as Moses and Elijah were invoked in Jesus’ Transfiguration. The seed of the new day depends upon the seed of yesteryear for an experience of the cyclic continuity of spirit. This is the basis for the institutionalized ideal of APOSTOLIC SUCCESSION, the guruampara (an uninterrupted chain of gurus) of Indian tradition. (More here.)

“Transfiguration” refers to Jesus as he became radiant in glory on the mountain in front of his disciples, Peter, John and James. Moses and Elijah appear next to Jesus, and they all talk together. I mention this, because it further echoes the Logos and Kassandra conjunctions. Moses represents the Law, and Elijah represents the Prophets. I don’t know how this will play out, but I pay attention to double whammy symbols. You could even call it a triple whammy in that the Full Moon occurs on Palm Sunday, another key Biblical moment of “recognition.”

The Transfiguration, by Raphael, 1520

As always, how this Full Moon affects you depends on your natal chart, as well as on what levels you choose to engage these energies. In a world grown increasingly shrill and hysterical, this weekend offers a chance to explain actions, to speak the Truth in Love, and to heal through a delicate balance of rational, intuitive, emotional and prophetic awareness.

We won’t figure it all out all at once. The story unfolding through the sky and in ourselves transcends easy explanations on any one level. We can keep paying attention, though. We can open our minds and hearts to possibilities of strange occurrences in dimensions beyond what we see with our 3D eyes. We can honor our own roles as co-creators, and we can explore our own rules, regulations and desires for revolution.

We can also commit to shining in our own most authentic, loving ways. When we radiate our inner truth in the world’s darkness, one by one, we light up the world. And each other. We are interconnected in ways we can’t yet fully fathom.

Happy Full Moon! Love and blessings to all.

Sharon Blackie ~ Becoming Who We Are

This newsletter/post by Dr. Sharon Blackie came through at such a synchronous moment for me — a series of reassurances that began with a dream and continued to unfold for over an hour.

It’s a beautiful, encouraging post in these times of certain change and uncertain outcomes. Highly recommended, affirming post. You can read it here.

Steven Forrest ~ Healing the Collective Hurt

Astrologer Steven Forrest’s latest newsletter really highlights and explains October’s energies as they relate to the Moon’s Nodes — those spots associated with individual and collective karma and life path. Wherever our own natal North and South Nodes are, we still inhabit a collective realm. For some people, the current Node positions are extremely relevant in composite or progressed charts, even if you know nothing of astrology. Because these energies get triggered from deep, dark, chthonic healing Scorpio, paying attention to the heads up makes sense. You can read Steven’s stellar insights here.

September 2019 Specials

I haven’t forgotten! I’ve been so busy with both work and play that I’m only now getting a chance to post September 2019 Specials. I could have done so on the first but wanted to get Timothy Glenn’s message out there right away.  Based on the number of recent sessions I did for people who would like to continue with extra support while making the recommended changes, I decided to extend August’s Three for Two Special for another month. I’m not sure if I will offer it again in 2019, but I feel led to keep offering it through September 2019.

Many people seem poised to make giant leaps that seem sudden, even though they’ve taken years of preparation. During such times, it helps to have someone hold the energy of the new. I’m happy and honored to do that. Sometimes it takes an objective, non-involved eye to spot glitches or old patterns sneaking in. Sometimes you just want someone to recognize and validate the soul’s rationale.

“Am I crazy?”

“Am I onto something?”

“It’s still in dream phase, but oh, my goodness, I just got this opportunity.  Am I ready for it?”

I hear all these things and more during sessions. I find more often than not, people have received their own intuitive nudges. They just lacked the confidence, courage or trust to let their soul lead.

For the second special, I feel led to bring back the $44 Tarot Special, since this offers a quick, fun and low cost way to check on your current status and likely trajectory.

Apologies for the delayed posting of these specials. I hope you all enjoyed the weekend and are feeling the changing seasons.

SEPTEMBER 2019 SPECIALS

Three For Two

Based on feedback from people going through big shifts right now, it seems time to offer this package deal again. 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 9/30/19. Please contact me to sign up.

$44 Tarot Special

Half-hour tarot reading at 20% off the usual rate. Tarot readings offer an energetic check-in, the chance to ask questions about pending decisions or intentions, and represent a fun, yet powerful way to gain perspective on relationships and challenges. They can also be used to offer a snapshots of the coming months and year.

Tarot readings are particularly good for people who don’t know what kinds of questions to ask me; they just want some kind of guidance because they feel unsure of what’s coming or what to focus upon. Tarot also seems to benefit those people who have exceptionally good things coming their way, yet wonder if I might be “padding the reading” or “just saying what they want to hear.” The cards don’t lie. (Neither do I – but the cards seem an even more objective medium for delivering good news.)

Please contact me if you’d like to sign up for this special. Offer valid if prepaid on or before 9/30/19.

Timothy Glenn ~ Global Metamorphosis: A Timeline Overview

Yesterday morning, before this post came through from Timothy Glenn, in the space between sleep and wakefulness, I had a dream/vision of receiving a new article from Tim. Sure enough, I had received the “pre-email” article. The synchronicity tells me this one’s extra important and will prove prescient in coming years. You don’t need to understand all the complex astrology to get the overall message and overview of key themes and dates.

I became fast friends with Timothy Glenn way back in 2006. His playful humor, excellent teaching skills and collective overviews continue to hit the mark. Many thanks for the latest installment of Global Metamorphosis!

Global Metamorphosis: A Timeline Overview

by Timothy Glenn

Pluto spent the bulk of 2008 establishing its presence in the sign of Capricorn. From there, Pluto would spend more than a decade and a half undermining the world’s authoritarian systems, gradually setting them up for replacement. The original Global Metamorphosis article was even written before I started publishing online. Much has changed.

Pluto would not be doing a solo act during all this time, so interplay with other planets would color the planetary transformation. The ever dependable Saturn rules Capricorn and thus merits attention, along with our less than predictable friend Uranus. These disparate influences played significant roles in the Global Metamorphosis from 2012 through 2015.

Help for Empaths: Navigating the Should’s

This topic arises so often in sessions that I feel led to address it here, too. Many times, life tugs in different directions. Empaths, especially, sense how our own decisions affect the people we know and love. To some extent, this is a good thing. A person who lacks any empathy is also known as a narcissist or sociopath, so yes, we do need awareness of how our behavior and attitudes affect other people.

However

Empaths feel the emotions, attitudes, energy and thoughts of other people to a sometimes debilitating degree. Even the thought of hurting someone else hurts us. Without protection, we feel the disappointment, judgment, illness or whatever other pain of someone else within ourselves. When lived unconsciously, empathic “gifts” feel awful. Mysterious body aches, overwhelming sadness, anxiety, general confusion or lack of desire: I always advise empaths to ask, “Is this mine?” Because many times, it’s not. Good energy hygiene aides discernment.

I call this the Energy Brush Off, but it’s also a Japanese technique called Kenyoku or “dry bathing.” Bring your right hand to your left shoulder and then sweep down your arm, past your fingertips. Repeat on the other side, left hand to right shoulder, sweep down past your fingertips. Alternate sides three times, then flick your fingers like you washed your hands and can’t find a towel.

Repeat morning and night, like you brush your teeth. You can also do the Energy Brush Off anytime you felt good until you interacted with someone or something then suddenly felt tired, angry, sad, oppressed or “not as good as you did before.” Sudden shifts in health, emotions or energy levels often indicate some kind of empathic exchange. Brush that energy off before it settles in and becomes “yours.” It won’t really be all yours, but it becomes much more difficult to sense your own emotions, desires, attitudes, hopes and dreams when you embody those of everyone around you.

Good energy hygiene offers a regular reset to your own energy field. The more often you return to yourself, the more you recognize your own energy, including your own longings and desires. Continue reading

Eclipse Season and July 2019 Specials

An eventful July begins with a Total Solar Eclipse on July 2 at 10 degrees Cancer. If you have any personal planets at 10 degrees Cancer or Capricorn, you’ll feel this one in a big way. Ditto for anyone with 10 degrees Libra/Aries, which will be squared (creates friction/action) by the eclipse.

On July 8th, Mercury moves retrograde, conjuncting Mars in fiery Leo, which may increase impulsive action. You might also feel more tension than usual between acting and thinking. On the 9th, Chiron (wounded healer/deep inner wound) goes retrograde at 5 Aries, which will affect anything you have around 5 degrees Aries/Libra/Cancer/Capricorn. We’ve also got upcoming astro-weather involving Mars/Uranus, Venus/Pluto, and the Sun/North Node. You can find a more detailed overview of July 2019’s intense astrology here.

On July 16th, we’ll have a Lunar Eclipse at 24 degrees Capricorn. If that sounds familiar, have a look back at Ann Kreilkamp’s discussion about the upcoming Pluto/Saturn conjunction. Anything between 18- 24 degrees in Capricorn/Cancer/Aries/Libra will get extra-activated by the Lunar Eclipse and the South Node (currently at 18 Capricorn). South Node deals with karma, past lifetimes, old patterns. Because some key public figures have natal placements connected with the eclipses, we’re likely to see some pivotal events on the world stage, too.

JULY 2019 SPECIALS

Realizing the intensity of July for many individuals, along with pressure for a collective karmic shift, this month’s specials offer extra support tailored to these background energies.

40-Minute Astrology Special

$133 instead of the usual $177, this 40-Minute Astrology Special can address “why you’re here,” deep soul longings, how to bring more soul into the workplace or your relationship, and/or how your natal chart and transits may be affecting your health or finances. More importantly, the reading offers clues to maximize your own unique Soul’s process, so that you get the most growth and satisfaction from this carefully selected lifetime. Offer valid if prepaid on or before July 31, 2019. Please contact me to sign up.

Return of the $77 Past Life Quickie

With the veils thinning, so many more people have begun to experience what I call “past life bleed-through.” Dreams, hunches, visions, flashes … however the suspected past life awareness arrives, it can feel unsettling, exciting and/or cause obsessive questions. This half-hour reading allows people to ask persistent questions, or to have a check-in regarding the most pressing karmic issues presenting themselves right now. Yes, this can include past life relationships with animal friends.

I don’t normally offer Past Life Readings in a 20-minute format, but I wanted to make this available to the larger numbers of people wondering about previous lifetimes and relationships. If you’d like to double this special for 40 minutes, just let me know in your scheduling request. Offer valid if prepaid on or before July 31, 2019. Please contact me to sign up.

Divine Doorway 19: The Sun

After nearly a month of painting, yesterday, I finished the latest portal “door,” this one on canvas but with a window-like quality.

Divine Doorway Number 19: The Sun, by Laura Bruno

 

I modeled this extremely coded portal after the traditional Sun card in the Tarot, with some important shifts, which I’ll explain below.

IMG_3197

Rider-Waite-Smith version of The Sun card

When I just checked the list of Divine Doorways and Porta Portals to see what number I’ve reached, I noticed the synchronicity: the Sun card is number 19 in the Tarot, and this Sun portal is my 19th portal in this series. I didn’t plan that. As so often happens with these portals, it just worked out that way. I had forgotten that I painted a portal based on the Sun before, Divine Doorway Number 10: Hopi/Jewel in the Lotus. This 19th door was more traditional and personal to me, whereas the first Sun was a commissioned piece, designed and coded to manifest that patron’s hopes and dreams. Continue reading
