“A Deep Cleanse” Dream

This morning’s dream seems collective, so I’ll share it here:

1/17/2023
“A Deep Cleanse”

I was in a large, multi-storied house with a large group of people. At first it seemed like some kind of huge society party, but then I realized something else was going on here. Periodically, smaller groups of people would disappear from the festivities, and they’d go upstairs where we could just see them from kind of a mezzanine level.

While on this level, just barely visible to us below, people underwent a deep cleaning procedure, so that everything became purified. This occurred while wearing clothes. Everything just got a full blast of cleaning in a really posh setting. Then the people would return to the lower level and others would go upstairs.

This wasn’t a one and done situation. People needed multiple cleanings throughout the length of the party. It was loud with hints of excitement. People seemed eager to go through the cleansing process each time, like they knew this was a requirement in order to receive something really worth having.

I don’t remember much else. The main things were this deep cleansing process for groups of people and their excited, anticipatory voices as they went through the process with each other. The dream had an invigorating feel to it, and I awoke well rested and relaxed.

END of dream journal.

This feels like a collective dream and reminds me a little of the Gold Lamé Circle dream where groups of people left the circle and when they returned, they wore more and more gold lamé in their clothes until it reached their collars.

Instead of a golden circle, this dream featured a multistory building. Instead of turning into gold, people received a very deep cleansing, almost like every cell and every atom got squeezed and wrung out so that only the original and authentic imprints remained. Each cleansing process felt like a relief and the next step towards something wonderful.

I don’t have much to add, but it seems like an encouraging dream not just for me but for many people.

New Moon in Aquarius and Uranus Direct ~ January 21-22, 2023

This post wants to go up sooner rather than later. I will reblog it closer to the time, but these are wild and potent energies! In many ways, this upcoming New Moon gives us “a preview of the preview” of Pluto in Aquarius. On March 23, 2023 the slow moving Lord of the Underworld shifts from Capricorn, which Pluto has upended since 2008, and moves into Aquarius, where he will remain for just a few months before retrograding back to Capricorn on June 11. Pluto won’t re-enter Aquarius for the long haul until January 2024. The not quite three months in 2023 gives us a taste of Pluto in Aquarius until 2044.

This New Moon in very early Aquarius looks forward to March 23, and backwards to December 21, 2020 when Jupiter and Saturn conjuncted in the first degree of Aquarius. There are so many moving parts with this extremely “Age of Aquarius” event, including the Uranian concept of precognition or receiving rapid downloads of other points in time. Because of the intense pressure on the early degrees of Fixed Signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius), it feels right to give people an extra heads up, so here we go!

My January 2023 Forecast shared:

January 21 New Moon in Aquarius, 3:53 p.m. Eastern Standard US time. On a personal note, this New Moon conjuncts my own natal Moon, within minutes. Rounding up to 2° Aquarius, we find Dane Rudyhar’s Sabian Symbol for this New Moon: “AN UNEXPECTED THUNDERSTORM. KEYNOTE: The need to develop the inner security which will enable us to meet unexpected crises.” The Ruler of this New Moon–Uranus–stations Direct the next day. Stationing always amplifies the energy of an outer planet, and Uranus is the planet most associated with thunderstorms, especially lightning bolts. Anytime we deal with Aquarius or Uranus, we’re wise to “expect the unexpected.” We can’t prepare for everything, but we can pay attention to signs, synchronicities, dreams and “psychic downloads” urging us to take certain preparatory steps. When we work with the Unseen world, we experience greater resilience, peace and ease in the 3D world.

January 22 Uranus stations Direct in Taurus and Venus conjuncts Saturn in Aquarius. A powerful day! Uranus sends a spark of genius–or a flash of chaos. No one knows what this Cosmic Weirdo may do at any given moment. He’s like the Tower card in Tarot, a revolutionary, Mr. Wild Card Liberator stationing Direct in the most rooted, stable sign of the zodiac. Well, Taurus likes stability. With Uranus stirring things up since May 2018 and the North Node still retrograding its way through Taurus since January 2021, this Earth sign of banking, fertility, food, the body and personal values keeps getting zapped. Will lightning strike on 1/22/23? Who knows?! Outer planets exert the most pressure as they station, but will the earthquakes be literal or metaphorical? When the Love Goddess conjuncts Saturn, beautiful creations can more easily manifest. In zany Aquarius–co-ruled by both Saturn and Uranus–anything goes. With both these transits on the same day, we can predict something unusual will happen. Keep your head on a swivel and yer dancin’ shoes at the ready.

Asteroid Magdalena conjunct the New Moon amplifies its Aquarian feel. In astrology, Magdalena suggests “affinity and commitment toward a group or collective cause.” Aquarius is the sign of the group and collective cause. Together we can uplift humanity and serve the Highest Good of All.

Exactly opposing the New Moon is Black Moon Lilith in Leo. She reminds us that cooperation restricts our wild, primal nature (Lilith) and may go against our own needs and desires (Leo). Despite our best intentions and platitudes (Aquarius), ego issues (Leo) and deep soul needs (Lilith) demand acknowledgement. The UNEXPECTED THUNDERSTORM will be more intense if we try to ignore our inner Lilith. She wants sovereignty and respect. If we don’t factor her into the equation, autoimmune conditions, tantrums and rioting will follow. Aim for balance between group harmony (Aquarius) and personal integrity (Leo).

At the time of the New Moon, Mercury in Capricorn quincunxes Mars in Gemini. This 150° aspect demands creative integration of unlike things. Capricorn is a Cardinal Earth sign, while Gemini is a Mutable Air sign. On the surface they have nothing in common, but the quincunx nags us to make it work.

Mars in Gemini brings information warfare and reminds us that words have power. Mercury in Capricorn shares information about power structures, authorities, rules and regulations. Mercury also rules Gemini, so we find common ground in areas of information, communication and understanding. We can integrate this quincunx by paying attention to and acting on information, especially information that challenges us to look at other possibilities (Gemini). The phrase, “Let’s make a deal” comes to mind–a negotiation (Mercury/Gemini) among leaders (Capricorn) that allows us to move forward (Mars). This could occur on both personal and collective levels.

At this time, Mars closely conjuncts the US natal Uranus. Revolutionary energies arise across the world, but especially in the United States. Patience only lasts so long when Mars conjuncts one’s Uranus. Desire for change triggers action and–quite possibly–war. This is volatile energy. Beware of accidents and false flags.

The power and potential of Mercury in Capricorn gets strengthened by conjuncting centaur Pholus. I’ve written about Pholus before, because I find this guy sets off explosive events. Pholus is the “small thing/BIG EFFECT” point in a chart. Some compare his action to chaos theory’s “butterfly effect,” where “a small change in one state of a deterministic nonlinear system can result in large differences in a later state.” With Pholus so close to Mercury, quincunx Mars in Gemini/US natal Uranus, the smallest (Pholus) leak or drop of information (Mercury/Gemini) could suddenly (Pholus) challenge (Mars/US Uranus) the old world order (Capricorn). Of all the centaurs, Pholus acts most like Uranus–this New Moon’s ruler, and the planet that stations Direct the very next day.

Mercury in Capricorn also trines the North Node in Taurus. This supportive aspect suggests that messages, information and understanding (Mercury) will align with destiny (North Node), bringing tangible, real world results (Earth signs Capricorn and Taurus). But things align for even greater miracles. In addition to Pholus, Mercury also conjuncts asteroid Quaoar. According to SunSigns.org:

QUAOAR ASTROLOGY MEANING: A FLASH OF TRUTH

The Quaoar sign meaning signifies that the true mystical experience will help you access a more profound reality where everything flows perfectly. You consider everything as sacred and develop greater respect for life.”

Wow! But wait, there’s more …

Amplifying the North Node’s hand of destiny, this New Moon closely conjuncts asteroid Klotho. In mythology, Klotho is one of the Three Fate Sisters. She portends beginnings, initiations, births, and ignition. She can also bring people back to life if she feels they died too soon. Every New Moon allows us to hit the reset button, but Klotho and an ever growing cast of characters make this one feel extra fresh, weird and new. High strangeness awaits!

Set for Washington, D.C., the Ascendant of this New Moon chart conjuncts the January 6, 2023 Full Moon in Cancer. If you’ve not read that post, I suggest you do, as it sets the stage for this New Moon. This January 21 chart’s Ascendant also conjuncts the US natal Sun, marking it as extra important to the United States. The connection between the January 6 Full Moon and January 21 New Moon links these events as part of a bigger picture. Astrology allows us to peak behind a tarp hiding the Cosmic Painter’s canvas as he slowly finishes the work in progress. We don’t know if we’ll approve of style or genre, but planetary aspects and Sabian Symbols give us clues to theme and content.

As I mentioned in the January 6 Full Moon post, all of this occurs in larger context of the ongoing First US Pluto Return. That long transit first came into orb around 2015 and will continue through at least 2025. We’re in the thick of it right now, and although in a different sign, this New Moon conjuncts Pluto in Capricorn and the US natal Pluto. Anytime a nation undergoes its First Pluto Return, it faces existential threats. Sometimes the entire government dissolves. Crises, discord and revolutions are common. Sometimes that nation returns to its initial seed–the full potential contained in the original concept of the nation.

Uranus stations Direct the next day, just minutes away from the November 8, 2022 Full Moon Lunar Eclipse. You might recall that as Midterm Election Day in the US. Again, we find uncanny precision of astro and “real world” events. Dane Rudhyar’s Sabian Symbol for where Uranus stations Direct is: “(TAURUS 15°): HEAD COVERED WITH A RAKISH SILK HAT, MUFFLED AGAINST THE COLD, A MAN BRAVES A STORM. KEYNOTE: The courage needed to meet the crises precipitated by social ambition. … What is revealed here is CHARACTER under adverse circumstances.”

In other words, we’ve got the god of thunderstorms and lightning bolts (Uranus) showing off (stationing Direct), in a degree that emphasizes “a storm.” This occurs just one day after an Aquarius New Moon ruled by Uranus. That New Moon activates “AN UNEXPECTED THUNDERSTORM.” We don’t know what will happen, but something big is brewing. Within the next month, we might look around and say, “Toto, I have a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore.” Will we also sing, “Ding, dong the witch is dead”? Only time will tell, but Uranus tends to trigger liberation.

With Venus conjunct Saturn at this same time, we can bring something unusual (Aquarius) and beautiful (Venus) into tangible form (Saturn, the builder). A stroke of genius (Uranus) inspires elegant solutions (Venus conjunct Saturn). It might also trigger fated meetings that lead to committed relationships. My forecast: AN UNEXPECTED THUNDERSTORM with potential for rainbows.

Gold Lame Circle Dream

This morning’s dream seems collective, so I’ll share it here:

1/5/2023
“Gold Lamé Circle”

I observed a large group of people arranging themselves in a circle. It’s hard to say just how many people were there—probably more than 20 and less than 50. The number varied because while most remained in the circle, at any given time, some people moved offscreen. When they returned, they would have a higher proportion of gold lamé on their clothing. The gold began at the feet, and it gradually, after several rounds of this for each person, reached up to their collars.

When I first awoke from this dream, for some reason, I thought it was just me processing whatever’s going on in Congress. There was a large group forming the circle, but smaller groups of maybe five or six at a time would leave and then return with a higher level of gold lamé moving up their clothing. I thought this represented backroom deals and bribes, like they negotiated things off scene and then returned to the circle enriched (metaphorically the shiny gold clothing).

I fell back asleep and seemed to dream this same thing again, and now I feel like the dream has more of a universal, symbolic meaning. The people were initially dressed in black and gray. Each one made multiple trips offscreen, while others held the circle in place. Gradually, this circle became more and more golden, as the gold lamé made its way further up their outfits. By the end, I noticed that everyone was covered in gold lamé up to their collars, and the collars were pointed like each person had rays of the sun around their neck. These were soft, not rigid, but each person’s golden collar formed a microcosm of the larger golden circle their bodies formed.

Their heads and faces remained in tones of a black and white movie—they had various tones of gray skin and black or gray hair. They were human, not ETs, and the collars had a Louis XIV feel to them. “The Sun King.” The overall progression of the dream felt like another “threshold” dream in the sense that I watched the gradual shift from grayscale to gold. I don’t know if the faces and hair would also turn to gold, or if they had finished their transformation. They were either done, or very close to done.

This echoed that series of dreams saying, “You are at the threshold,” or “This is the threshold,” or “You’ve crossed the threshold.” It wasn’t quite clear how far each needed to go, but in last night’s dream(s), the process took a long time and was either finished or nearly finished. It also reminded me of my 2001 dream about asparagus spears appearing around my head. People would pluck the spears and eat them, and then more spears/rays would grow back.

END of dream journal.

A strange dream! Here’s an image of Louis XIV that kind of reflects what the clothing became in the dream, but super shiny. The heads and hats weren’t gold yet, but everything else on every other person was, by the end of my dream.

I shared the asparagus dream from 2001 in a 2010 post:

I looked up and saw a brilliant white light which shot down into my mouth. I ate it like food and asparagus stalks sprouted from my head. They surrounded my face like rays of the sun, and people would pluck and eat the spears. The light fed me and the spears continued to regenerate as people ate them.

(asparagus=sign of prosperity
circle, sun, spiritual food)

I can’t say exactly what each dream portends, but they seem like good signs. I will also add that I’ve noticed quite a few clients have suddenly reached the next phase of their long journeys. Whatever most important shifts I knew they would need to make in order to live the life they want to live–they have made, or are right at the threshold of making those shifts. The internal changes have occurred. The external shifts can now happen since they are ready to receive them. This also feels collective–like many of us have undergone long journeys, all synchronizing into the golden circle of my dream.

Full Moon in Cancer ~ January 6, 2023

My January 2023 Forecast shared:

January 6 Full Moon in Cancer, 6:08 p.m. Eastern Standard US time. According to Dane Rudhyar, the Sabian Symbol for this Full Moon is: (CANCER 17°): THE UNFOLDMENT OF MULTILEVEL POTENTIALITIES ISSUING FROM AN ORIGINAL GERM. KEYNOTE: The life urge to actualize one’s birth potential. What a beautiful and encouraging start to 2023! At the time of the Full Moon, the Capricorn Sun point trines Uranus in Taurus, which sextiles the Moon point. The presence of Uranus brings extra energy for breakthroughs and liberation.

The Moon rules the sign of Cancer, empowering this Full Moon with extra potent juju. We see an emphasis on intuition, emotions, ebb and flow, and issues around mothers, children, home, and country.

modified from original chart on astro-seek.com

The Sun point conjuncts Mercury in Capricorn. Information and messages will come through, especially about the past. With Mercury Retrograde, we might discover that some things are different than we originally thought. We can review details and reorganize our worldview. Pay attention to insights about rules, structures, organizations, and top down authorities. This is a great time to reassess loyalties and traditions, making sure these speak to the real you. If someone or something diminishes you, reconsider how you spend your time and energy.

The Full Moon conjuncts Echeclus. This object is both a centaur and a comet, which ties into his role in astrology. Zane Stein notes:

On Amable’s blog, Transneptunian Astrology, there is this interesting observation about Echeclus: “When Echeclus is activated, there are time connections between past, present and future. Usually something of the past has imposing influence in the present, and something of the present can have an imposing influence in the future, and vice versa, like in the movies “The Kid” (2000), “Family Man” (2000), “Pay it Forward” (2000), “Frecuency” (2000), “The Lake House” (2006, remake of “Il Mare” South Corean film of 2000), “Déjà Vu” (2006), “Tomb Raider: Legend” (PS2, 2006), “Star Trek” (1979) and “Tess” (1979).

“Learning to switch time perspectives allows us to shift our attention easily between the past, present and future, and consciously adapt our mindset to any given situation.”

Precognition and time loops get activated by Echeclus. If you find yourself “going around in circles,” consider the possibility of a spiral staircase. Are you processing the same thing but on a deeper or higher level? Time is non-linear. We can revisit and pre-visit events from widely divergent times and timelines. Remember the Sabian Symbol: THE UNFOLDMENT OF MULTILEVEL POTENTIALITIES ISSUING FROM AN ORIGINAL GERM. If you’ve felt stuck, this Full Moon’s for you. Whatever glimpse you’ve had of your most authentic, full potential Self, go for it!

Asteroid Pallas also conjuncts the Full Moon in Cancer. Pallas stands for Pallas Athene, and represents Athena’s wisdom, knowledge, and support of the arts. She also deals with pattern recognition, including astrology. This conjunction increases insight into overall patterns playing across our lives. Many of these patterns appear in our natal charts. It just depends how we play the hand we’re dealt. Will we embrace our soul’s full intention for this lifetime?

An owl often sits on Athena’s shoulder, so we get Full Moon, female and owl, all of which remind me of this grainy mirror photo from 2010:

This Full Moon exactly trines asteroid Psyche in Scorpio. Psyche represents the Soul, and in Scorpio, we’re talking the deepest parts of the Soul. Psyche was born mortal. Through a process of love, loss, divine intervention and even more love, Psyche became an immortal goddess, finally allowed to live with her husband Eros. She covers all levels and realms of consciousness, all the different ways we discover who we are and what makes us tick. This Full Moon urges us to reach our full potential as a soul.

The Full Moon in Cancer + Psyche in Scorpio form a Grand Trine in Water with asteroids Vesta and Atlantis in Pisces. Combined with the Sabian Symbol for this Moon, I find the trine with Vesta and Atlantis fascinating. Vesta represents devotion to that which we hold most dear. She tends the flame of our highest ideals, kind of like the Statue of Liberty with her torch. The sign of Cancer wants to protect and nurture family, home and country. This Full Moon in Cancer occurs within three degrees of the US natal Sun. Remember, January 6 marks an important date in US history. Whether you consider J6 an insurrection or a false flag, this Full Moon will shine light on those events.

It also occurs in larger context of the ongoing First US Pluto Return (most exact from 2022-2025). This transit will either destroy the US or see it rise like a phoenix born from the ashes of its own funeral pyre. Pluto destroys that which no longer serves, removing anything stagnant or stifling. Anything not included in the original seed or divine blueprint gets blasted away. In context of the Full Moon’s trine to Atlantis and Vesta, America was originally imagined as “The New Atlantis“–a reference to Sir Francis Bacon’s novel of that name. Analyzing this novel’s influence on the founding of the United States, Rosanne Lindsay explains:

Sir Francis Bacon was a Freemason who had a major influence on the founding of America. Along with the Pilgrims who came to America for religious freedom, secret societies, who followed Bacon’s work, came with another agenda – to use America’s military and financial power to establish democracies throughout the world, and to restore The Lost City of Atlantis.

In a pure democracy, laws are made directly by the voting majority leaving the rights of the minority largely unprotected. In a republic, laws are made by representatives chosen [by] the people and must comply with a constitution that specifically protects the rights of the minority from the will of the majority.

The issue of constitutional compliance is “up” right now and impacts what could prove a monumental lawsuit on the Supreme Court docket for January 6, 2023. Time will tell what happens, but what uncanny timing with the J6 anniversary, this court case, and the Full Moon! The next four weeks could get very interesting, especially once Mars, Mercury and Uranus station Direct in mid-late Janaury. Action, information and liberation will play key roles on the world stage. The Sabian Symbol for the US natal Sun includes a KEYNOTE: Fulfillment in transcending and changeless wisdom. By conjuncting the US natal Sun, the January 6 Full Moon in Cancer amplifies the presence of Pallas Athene, with her owl and wisdom. Athena is also the patron goddess of Athens, aka the “birthplace of democracy.”

Look to overall patterns and the potential to transcend current challenges through wisdom that endures. At the time of the Full Moon, the North Node destiny point sits at 11°11′ Taurus–another manifestation gateway. Again, the Sabian Symbol of this Full Moon bodes well. THE UNFOLDMENT OF MULTILEVEL POTENTIALITIES ISSUING FROM AN ORIGINAL GERM. KEYNOTE: The life urge to actualize one’s birth potential.

Synchronously, this Full Moon also occurs on the Christian feast of Epiphany–when the Magi recognized the divine nature of Jesus. Most people don’t realize that these Three Wise Men were astrologers watching the sky and following a star to find divine revelation in human form. An “epiphany” is also “a sudden insight or intuitive understanding” that often leads to breakthrough. Once again, the Sabian Symbol rings loud and clear.

Happy Full Moon in Cancer! May we each become our best and truest selves.

Update on the Return of Wounded Knee Relics

Today’s post comes as follow up to earlier posts regarding the return of human remains and sacred relics from the Wounded Knee massacre. Thank you to everyone who continues to pray and send energy to the success of this important shift. On November 1, I received the following message from Mia Feroleto:

Hi Laura,

I hope all is well with you.  The artifacts are being returned this weekend and we are all very excited.

On [October] 25th Ray Grasse graced our New Moon Group with a talk on the US Pluto return and the return of the artifacts from Wounded Knee.  We edited out the second part of the talk which was not meant to be shared but here is the first half in case you would like to share it with your subscribers:

Enjoy!

Mia

(Laura again): The video has quite a political slant and represents Ray Grasse’s interpretation of history and current events. I post it here as one perspective but not the only perspective. Just FYI: I don’t want to get into political discussion on this blog, but I always appreciate wider perspectives.

The return of relics begins tomorrow–November 5, 2022– in Barre, MA and will culminate in a ceremony at Wounded Knee in late December. As mentioned before, astrologer Ray Grasse and I each came to independent conclusions about the connection between the Wounded Knee massacre and the First US Pluto Return. My awareness came via intuitive download, but Ray goes into much more astrological detail. He includes the following notes beneath the video:

A zoom presentation by Ray Grasse, on Oct. 25, 2022, on the relation of the U.S. Pluto return to current events in America, concluding with a look in how this epic astrological development helps explain important events taking place in the Native American community now. specifically those centering on the efforts of Mia Feroleto (the first person appearing in the video) to help repatriate personal items plundered from the site of the Wounded Knee massacre in 1890.

For a complete transcript of my original 2019 article on the Pluto return (for The Mountain Astrologer magazine) see here: https://www.astro.com/astrology/tma_a…

An upcoming issue of New Observations magazine (which Mia edits) will be dedicated to Native American concerns, particularly around the Wounded Knee issue. For more information: https://www.newobservations.org/

Also, journalist and activist Abby Martin produced an excellent 19 min. video based on Mia Feroleto’s work, titled “Lakota Human Remains Stolen from US Army Massacre Hoarded by Private Museum,:” on Youtube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5KODQ…

__

(Laura again): For those who don’t care about astrology, the upshot is that the artifacts will be returned tomorrow. This is great news! The good faith gesture corrects an ongoing abusive situation and helps to ease some of the intensity headed to the US in these chaotic times.

Happy Halloween + Writing Updates

Happy Halloween/Samhain/Celtic New Year to those who celebrate!

In honor of the upcoming November 1 “All Saint’s Day” and what would be the 35th birthday of my character, Schizandra, I’ve released an updated 2022 print edition, plus a totally new Kindle version of Schizandra and the Gates of Mu. Huge thanks to Mike Clelland for reformatting both. From the new text:

Author’s note about the 2022 edition

I first published Schizandra and the Gates of Mu in July 2009. This was intended as Book One of a five-part series. Little did I know how writing this series would upend my life. After starting to write Book Two, the fictional plot bled so far into my waking life that I wound up divorced and returning to Hyde Park, Chicago—to the same University of Chicago neighborhood Schizandra had just left.

Instead of continuing to write that book, I began painting portals on antique doors—an activity Schizandra had mysteriously begun in Book Two. I deepened tarot and astrology studies, painted lots more portal doors, and got remarried. With its 2012 theme, I eventually removed Schizandra and the Gates of Mu from print, thinking the story had served its purpose.

Then, in late 2021, I began to notice little details of my novel becoming much more relevant. Clients reading or re-reading the book experienced major breakthroughs by tracing my characters’ journeys as their own. I now feel like I wrote Schizandra and the Gates of Mu for 2022 and beyond—rather than for 2012. This edition includes some minor editing, but the original story remains.

We’re at another key moment in human evolution. There are battles for human DNA, as well as the human soul. Whether internal or external, many of these battles occur in unseen realms. I don’t know if or when I’ll write additional Schizandra stories, but in 2022, she reawakened.

___

(back to blogging here): Last weekend is the first time I re-read Schizandra and the Gates of Mu in its entirety since 2009! In addition to worldwide topics, I noticed an unanticipated connection to the First US Pluto Return.

Death and rebirth themes are certainly “up” right now, including things embedded in this story regarding the United States. The First US Pluto Return goes exact from 2022-2024, with up to seven years on either side. Many nations don’t survive their First Pluto Return. At the very least, they face the depths of their Shadow and a near death experience. In some ways, Schizandra’s journey to the Underworld parallels the high stakes and potential rewards of what the US faces right now.

I began this novel as a short story back in Fall 2001 when I could still barely read after my 1998 TBI. Most of the story arrived in dreams, visions and synchronicities, with the main challenge of translating that into something people could read and absorb. At the time of writing I didn’t realize just how precognitive my dreams, visions and syncs tend to be. In retrospect, the book seems much more “now” than I ever would have guessed.

Those of you who love Timothy Glenn’s posts might be interested to know that he did an actual tarot, astrology and numerology reading for Schizandra way back in 2007, and the character Tom Brown’s reading reflects much of what Timothy shared.

Back in 2009, I only dabbled in astrology and tarot. I never pulled Schizandra’s natal chart for myself until last weekend, and I was even more blown away that I just “randomly” picked her birth date and time. The Great Mystery runs deep! Continued thanks to Tim for his enthusiasm and support for Schizandra, as well as his ongoing articles on this blog.

___

In other writing news, I’ve begun re-writing The Metaphysics of Lyme as a novel instead of a non-fiction book. Feedback from clients who had breakthroughs by reading Schizandra and the Gates of Mu convinced me of what I already sensed: fiction allows me to show rather than tell people how to heal themselves.

I’ll include my medical intuitive insights into moving beyond Lyme disease, but I hope the novel will entice others to read, as well. In this way, I can raise more awareness of how Lyme affects everyone–including friends and family of the person experiencing symptoms. I don’t want to reveal too much before I dive deeper into this project, but for those wondering why it’s taken me so long to write The Metaphysics of Lyme, this is why. I realized I could offer much greater service in a different format, and I needed the characters and story to announce themselves in their own good time. And yes, there will be paranormal elements to the story!

For those struggling with Lyme disease right now, I released Lyme Journal: A Guided Recovery Workbook, back in January 2019. That list of writing prompts helps you to coach yourself and journal your way through multiple layers of healing.

___

A final note: I love all the private emails I receive from readers telling me how much they’ve loved and benefited from my various books. These often contain very personal stories, dreams and synchronicities. If you feel comfortable leaving a more public-ready review on Amazon so that others can benefit from your insights, I would appreciate that so much. There’s a wide gap between private feedback/gratitude and the number of public reviews. 🙂

Thanks, blessings, Happy Halloween, and Happy 35th Birthday to Schizandra!

Again, you can find the new Kindle version here.

New Moon in Libra ~ September 25, 2022

Given all the chatter around “September 24,” I’m posting this ahead of time so people can prepare for the energies. I keep telling clients that it’s VERY difficult right now to pin down exactly what will happen when. So many moving parts are in effect. It feels like life is screaming, “Category 5 Hurricane, Category 5 Hurricane.”

My personal sense is that yes, we are approaching a metaphorical hurricane, and things LOOK bad in some areas. I feel like we’ll wind up with more of a Category 2 Hurricane — significant change, some of it quite radical, but I feel like humanity is actually on the most positive timeline available right now. Some areas won’t even experience a hurricane, just much needed rain. Some people and some areas will have targeted tornadoes in addition to that Category 2 Hurricane. I speak in metaphors, but perhaps also literally.

Bottom line, the consistent message I keep receiving is that things could have been way worse than they are — almost incomprehensibly worse, except I’ve glimpsed those timelines. Collectively, we’re not on those timelines. Some disruption will occur, but seriously, folks, count your blessings!

Thriving is possible, and gratitude is powerful. Yes, things will change. In many cases, that’s a good thing. Change is necessary … but yes, change can be stressful. I posted the Astrological Preparedness Special this month for a reason. 🙂 If you position yourself well, you can benefit from disruption and even chaos. If you position yourself well and “nothing happens,” you’ve still positioned yourself well. You’ll find openings where others find closed doors. As the Hopi Prophecies say, “This can be a good time.”

My September 2022 Forecast shares:

September 25 New Moon in Libra 5:55 p.m. Eastern US time. Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, begins at Sundown. The Sabian Symbol for this New Moon indicates powerful shifts: (LIBRA 3°): THE DAWN OF A NEW DAY REVEALS EVERYTHING CHANGED. This degree also opposes Jupiter in Aries. Jupiter enlarges everything, so whatever revelations come, they’ll be big. Mercury and Venus conjunct in Virgo, bringing love and grace to the message. Saturn in Aquarius trines Mars in Gemini and squares Uranus in Taurus. The Saturn-Mars trine supports responsible action, but the Saturn-Uranus square demands bolder, revolutionary moves. This New Moon sets the stage for an October Surprise when that square goes within minutes of exact.

Dane Rudhyar elaborates on the Sabian Symbol with a “KEYNOTE: The ever-present possibility of beginning again on a new foundation of values.” Following so soon after Equinox, this New Moon hits the reset button even more so than usual. Jupiter tends to bring blessings, but the magnitude of change initiated by this New Moon could feel more like a “blessing in disguise.” Even longed for changes bring stress, and oftentimes the biggest, most necessary changes arise with a certain degree of inner turmoil before we accept and settle into the shifts.

This intensity gets amplified by the Mercury/Venus conjunction in Virgo trining Pluto in Capricorn. Deep, unconscious feelings express themselves in profound and uncontrollable ways. Long held secrets — told in great detail — change the way we understand our values and ourselves.

The September 25 New Moon in Libra’s Sabian Symbol anticipates more Scorpio themes of death and rebirth: THE DAWN OF A NEW DAY REVEALS EVERYTHING CHANGED. Moon cycles unfold over the course of a month. We might not recognize the full extent of change until the New Moon in Scorpio and Solar Eclipse on October 25. But change is coming.

Libra is ruled by Venus and symbolized by the balanced scales of Justice. Although the Sabian Symbol says, “everything changed,” the sign of Libra clues us to possible areas of extra radical change: relationships, partnerships, alliances, arts, literature, legal matters, and how we balance our lives. If you’ve struggled in any of these areas, then this New Moon bodes well for you.

If the prospect of a new reality scares you, I encourage you to lean into the positive side of Libra. Venus, the Goddess of Love, brings extra grace, harmony and beauty to her home sign. Often, we don’t realize we’re settling for something less until we see the upgrade. Instead of digging in your heels, allow yourself to engage the new, at least in your imagination. Surround yourself with as much beauty and balance as you can in the midst of changes beyond your control. Miracles await for those with eyes to see.

Approaching Go Time?

In my Precognitive Blues, Part 3 post, I shared the following:

A Recent Tarot Dream

On October 2, 2019, I had a potent dream. I stood in a pool at twilight chatting with my friend’s teenage son, Sol. (It seemed more symbolic with the name — Sol, aka “Sun” — rather than the person.) We could overhear my aunt and sister discussing the special mandala shaped patio and walkway under their feet. It featured a center circle at slightly lower elevation than the surrounding circles, which all tilted towards the center circle. My aunt told my sister, this setup would “ensure everyone and everything winds up in the right place at the right time in the event of an earthquake.”

At that point, something in me snapped, and I shouted at the dream itself, “What is the significance of ____?” I listed options, making sure to cover all bases except the one I suspected it might be. All of a sudden, the dream turned into a giant Tarot card! I won’t say which card or my question, because those details are private … and also because I want to make a more universal point about Tarot card dreams.

In any case, the dream went from a pool at twilight with Sol/Sun, overhearing a discussion about cracking foundations, safe mandala patios and sorting people and things in the event of an earthquake … then to my question/demand … and then to a giant cartoon Tarot card. I mentioned before that Tarot cards carry multiple meanings. In my dream, this card added and subtracted details to leave only one possible interpretation. Just in case I tried to miss the point — and yes, in the dream I tried to miss it — the card sparkled and flashed its modified details like a cornball cartoon. Subtle it was not.

An amused voice-over asked, “Any questions?”

Stunned, I found myself back in the swimming pool at twilight, talking to Sol and overhearing the exact same conversation about the mandala patio/walkway/foundation built to ensure everyone and everything winds up where they need to be in the event of an earthquake.

I had this powerful Tarot dream the day Pluto turned from retrograde to direct at 20 Capricorn — a significant position in my life for a variety of reasons. At the time of the dream, I didn’t realize Pluto’s shift, but the dream involved such obvious Plutonian themes that my jaw dropped when I looked up the transits. I wanted to discount the dream, but the astrology forced my left brain into compliance. I began composing a “hypothetical” email to my astrology mentor, Ann Kreilkamp and then laughed at myself. The flashing one-interpretation-only Tarot card gave my right brain no place to run. Pretending I didn’t get the message after seeing the astrology embarrassed me enough to stop composing the email.

You asked, Laura. You demanded an answer. We suggest you deal with it.

I’m still doing my Gemini Houdini negotiations with that dream whammy. For all we want to know, part of us may not really want to know what we already know. That dilemma arises in precognitive and “normal” people, if there’s actually a difference. At some point, we know what we know, whether that information comes in a vision, in a dream, by hypnotherapy, psychic reading, or through careful research and observation. Precognitive Blues, Part 1 and Part 2 explore gradations and complications of seeming foreknowledge. Clairaudience, Clairvoyance, Clairsentience, and Claircognizance explores ways that foreknowledge reveals itself.

Fast forward to September 11, 2022, the 21st anniversary of 9/11. I know I’m not the only one to notice this, because I keep hearing from friends and clients that they also felt a significant shift on September 8. For a friend and myself, the sense of this shift preceded the announcement of Queen Elizabeth’s death, but coincided with the supposed time of her death. My Full Moon in Pisces post noted:

September 10 Full Moon in Pisces, 5:59 a.m. Eastern US time. This Full Moon loosely conjuncts Neptune in Pisces, bringing extra empathy and intuition to an already highly charged day. The Sabian Symbol for this Full Moon is “IN A GIGANTIC TENT, VILLAGERS WITNESS A SPECTACULAR PERFORMANCE.” Whether religious, political or some form of “bread and circuses,” Neptune’s presence adds massive Glamour to the leader of this spectacle. It will be easy to get carried away by sweeping emotions and inspiration. Something about this Full Moon dazzles the public in dramatic ways.

I almost wrote but deleted, “Will that spectacle be a huge state funeral?” With all the memorials, 10 days of mourning, etc., I can’t imagine a more “spectacular performance” than the lead up to Queen E2’s funeral, the event itself and King Charles III’s coronation ceremony.

I was not surprised by the death announcement since I had a dream on August 28 from which I awoke hearing young children singing, “London Bridge is falling down, falling down. London Bridge is falling down, my fair lady!” This dream followed an extreme kundalini experience while watching the movie “London Has Fallen.” As I continued to have what I call kundalini shakes while watching the film, I kept saying to David, “I hope this doesn’t mean something like this is going to happen. I haven’t had these shakes since right before 9/11.” After the Queen died, I learned that the code for her death is “London Bridge has fallen,” and the name for the protocol for transition of power to Charles is called “Operation London Bridge.”

But back to my October 2, 2019 dream about the special mandala floors to ensure everyone and everything winds up in the right place at the right time in the event of an earthquake. Over the years, I keep returning to this metaphor, and I’ve shared it with MANY clients. There seems to be some kind of reality overlay that will shift like a Rubik’s cube and click everyone and everything into place. Others and I have tracked massive synchronicities, dreams and external events, which seem to validate a separate timeline — whether we call that a New Earth, an alternate reality, or Ascension.

In the past few days, the movement of mandala floors showed up in a literal way in my 3D life. This coincided with a bizarre sighting of a hot air balloon, synchronicities around the Moon, as well as earthquakes (seen on a movie, but there’s also an uptick in 3D life). After a Friday session for a colleague, I shared details of a tight Celtic knot of dreams and synchronicities involving the shifting mandala floors and the hot air balloon. She told me that she has had numerous dreams and synchronicities involving hot air balloons as connected to “this time we’re in, go time.” Her most recent hot air balloon synchronicity occurred around the same time as I saw the hot air balloon on the previous day.

But wait! There’s more … this morning, I received an email from the person whose portal matches the card from my October 2, 2019 dream. Her email had the subject line, “Moving Mandalas!” We went back and forth on various synchronicities, only to discover that she used to crew hot air balloons and uses that terminology to describe different types of lift off. She also sent me an image of an owl in the center of a squaring the circle mandala.

I’m barely scratching the surface of dreams, synchronicities and validating 3D world events. I can’t say for certain what’s coming, but it feels like we have entered the next phase of a long, slow and careful process. Remember, my September 2022 Forecast says about the New Moon later this month:

September 25 New Moon in Libra 5:55 p.m. Eastern US time. Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, begins at Sundown. The Sabian Symbol for this New Moon indicates powerful shifts: (LIBRA 3°): THE DAWN OF A NEW DAY REVEALS EVERYTHING CHANGED. This degree also opposes Jupiter in Aries. Jupiter enlarges everything, so whatever revelations come, they’ll be big. Mercury and Venus conjunct in Virgo, bringing love and grace to the message. Saturn in Aquarius trines Mars in Gemini and squares Uranus in Taurus. The Saturn-Mars trine supports responsible action, but the Saturn-Uranus square demands bolder, revolutionary moves. This New Moon sets the stage for an October Surprise when that square goes within minutes of exact.

We shall see what unfolds, but the sky and Sabian Symbols seem to confirm big shifts below. I’ve noticed that the Moon cycle unfolds from one Full Moon to the next Full Moon, from New Moon to the next New Moon, so this doesn’t necessarily mean everything will look totally different on September 25. But it might!

I’ve tracked this time period for years due to dreams and synchronicities. I posted the Two of Cups portal on Fall Equinox 2020, and Fall Equinox 2019 was also filled with highly charged time slipping events. This 2022 time of equal day and equal night feels like a cosmic hinge point, especially with the powerful New Moon symbolism on the 25th.

For me, this feels extra powerful. On the September 22, 2022 Equinox, my progressed Scorpio Moon shifts into Sagittarius. My progressed Moon entered Scorpio on March 27, 2020 and remains in Pluto’s lair until Fall Equinox 2022. The New Moon on the 25th conjuncts my natal Pluto (death/rebirth/regeneration) and activates my natal Sun-Moon-Pluto Grand Trine, right after my progressed Scorpio Moon (ruled by Pluto) moves from the shadowy Underworld to a bright and bold Sagittarius adventure. How will this play out? No idea, but my progressed Moon has uncannily tracked with the worldwide COVID drama.

My October 2022 Forecast (not published yet as of this post) shares:

October 8 Pluto stations direct in Capricorn. After a deep dive since April 29, Lord of the Underworld prepares to resurface. All those hidden things you thought would never see the light of day? Pluto drags ’em up when he’s good and ready. Nobody pushes Pluto around. Resistance is futile. Try to suppress that force, and you’ll find death, destruction and devastation like you never imagined. Work with Pluto, and he brings healing, rebirth and regeneration beyond your wildest dreams. Ignore him at your peril. If you’ve ever wanted to clean house, do so now. You have support.

Does my October 2, 2019 Pluto stationing direct dream connect to this October 8 Pluto stationing direct? I don’t know. Maybe. It feels connected, but time will tell.

Today’s post won’t make sense to everyone, and that’s OK. I share this because in sessions I find that many intuitive people receive similar dream symbols, messages and synchronicities. Perhaps you are, too. If so, you’re not alone. For whatever it’s worth, I’ve been shown some great challenges for humanity, but also that vibration makes a huge difference of how the challenges will affect individuals. None of us will remain untouched, but it is possible to experience the rebirth and regeneration — sooner and more profoundly — after the metaphorical or literal death and destruction.

Above all, this is a time for prayer, discernment, gentle nurturing, patient waiting — and bold moves if and when we get the signal for “go time.” It’s approaching. I don’t know exactly when or how, but those special mandala floors are on the move!

Timothy Glenn ~ The Field

This is a follow-up post answering questions received since Timothy’s last article, “The Plutonian Phoenix Does Capricorn, 2008-2040: A Timeline Overview.” According to Tim, the next follow-up post will discuss additional astrological patterns that track with information uncovered by researcher Jason Breshears (archaix.com). Today’s post covers how Tim “sees this, that, or whatever.” Enjoy!

The Field

by Timothy Glenn

There is only the one infinite energy field, often known as The Field of Infinite Possibilities. You can also call it the Universe, the Multiverse, the Omniverse, God, Goddess, Heavenly Father/Mother, Spirit, Creator, All That Is, Infinity, Source, or anything you wish, because everything you could ever think of to call it is already contained within it. You can even address it as Hey, You! No problem – because it’s anything and everything.

Some of the aforementioned expressions carry a lot of baggage, especially the word “God”. Such terms broadcast connotations of belief systems that are designed to function as a tractor beam. They are intended to pull our consciousness into an illusory holographic trap, which in turn is filled with limiting rules and regulations.

Our friends in the realm of physics prefer a neutral term: The Field. Everything is The Field. Everyone is The Field. This brings to mind the words of the wonderful Persian poet Rumi: “Out beyond ideas of wrong-doing and right-doing there is a field. I’ll meet you there.”

You are The Field. There is nothing else to be. Everything is an expression of the whole, and the essence of the whole is always present in each of its parts. Rumi conveys this principle with his classic eloquence: “You are not a drop in the ocean. You are the ocean in a drop.”

You are all of infinity expressing itself at a single point.

Shifting Into Neutral

The Field is completely neutral. In its infinite wholeness, The Field is not dividing itself into positive and negative, right and wrong, true and false, yin and yang, light and dark, good and evil, or any of the zillions of other polarities we could ever imagine.

Neutrality also provides a key to transcendence. Many people approach spiritual practices as though they were making a jailbreak from their earthly reality. By viewing the human world as a prison from which to escape, people make it more real for themselves. They tie their mental and emotional energies to the very world from which they want to liberate themselves. This epitomizes the famous expression coined by Carl Gustav Jung: “What you resist persists.” If you fight it, you feed it.

Like so many endeavors in life, transcendence is not necessarily easy, but extremely simple. Calm down. Center yourself. Enter a state of complete neutrality and render all else irrelevant. And once all claptrap of this alleged reality has been rendered irrelevant, you have already achieved a state of transcendence.

It Just Is

Paradoxes can be fun. The only thing you can ever know for sure is that you can never know anything for sure.

In our human experience, each of us gathers data from which to construct our model of the universe. Most people confuse their model of the universe for the universe itself, and not merely a model. Socrates apparently understood this when he said, “I am the wisest man alive, for I know one thing, and that is that I know nothing.”

We can speak from our own perspectives and interpretations, and do so emphatically. But is Reality a one-size-fits-all proposition? Probably not. I usually don’t bother debating with anyone who gets dogmatic about a belief, although I might counter them with the question: “And what about the rest of infinity?”

Is the earth round or flat? Yes. And much more besides. We could describe the earth as a multidimensional hologram. But then, are they actually dimensions or are they density levels? Or are they simply orders of magnitude of scale within the same dimension and density level? It’s easy to come to the conclusion that nothing in this world is what it appears to be. But then, if it appears that way to us, then so it is. But then, did we factor in observer effect?

The Field of Infinite Possibilities is exactly that. The delightfully eccentric physicist Doc RAM (Dr. Richard Alan Miller) sums it up succinctly: “If it’s possible, it exists.”

42

Life, the Universe and Everything is the third book in the six volume series known as The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. The “ultimate question” is posed: “What is the answer to life, the universe and everything?”

The supercomputer called Deep Thought calculates the answer as 42.

Even though author Douglas Adams tried to pass this off as a joke and nothing more, he was well known for his fascination with technology. Here we turn to ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange). Every character on your keyboard has a numeric designation. On that official list, number 42 is the asterisk.

What is the answer to life, the universe and everything? The asterisk, the wild card that can represent anything.

Whatever.

In the early 90’s, I adopted that simple compound word to express my overarching philosophy of life, the universe and everything.

I even had a t-shirt made to display my philosophy and my fundamental approach to it: “Yeah, well…whatever.”

New Moon in Gemini ~ May 30, 2022

I’m posting this one early, too, because yowza! Preparation allows us to surf these energies and even benefit from them. My May 2022 Forecast shared:

May 30 New Moon in Gemini, 7:30 a.m. Eastern US time. The Sabian Symbol for this New Moon point is AN AIRPLANE PERFORMING A NOSE DIVE. Will it be a Blue Angels show — or a crash from the air? The stakes could not be higher. Success takes boldness, but we’ll have that with a sextile from the Jupiter/Mars conjunction in fiery Aries. Meanwhile, Mercury and the North Node in Taurus square Saturn in Aquarius, urging us to negotiate what seems like an impossible situation. Suspense, action, skill. “Come fly with me, let’s fly, let’s fly, Pack up, let’s fly away!”

These energies are real nail biters, but they hold great potential for an amazing turnaround. Dane Rudhyar’s full Sabian Symbol description adds further nuance:

PHASE 70 (GEMINI 10°): AN AIRPLANE PERFORMING A NOSE DIVE.  

KEYNOTE: A superior ability to challenge nature and play with danger.

Through the controlled use of mental powers man is able to challenge the most basic force in nature: gravitation. He enjoys playing with it as a lion tamer with his violent animals. But what he challenges is within himself as well as outside. Gravitation is the universal binding force of the material world. By challenging it man prepares himself to pierce beyond the physical and to reach higher realms of existence. He may lose the struggle, but that prospect makes the effort more exciting. He might gain “immortality.”

This is the final stage of the fourteenth sequence. The symbol for it has a strong sense of finality. No possibility of half measures exist. Man is committed irrevocably to success or failure — at least as a conscious and self-reliant mind. The alternatives are clear-cut. One may describe it as MIND vs. MATTER, or as Man’s will against the fate that gravitation so aptly symbolizes.

Mercury conjunct the North Node at this time encourages on-path information and communication. Our understanding aligns with the collective destiny point, and this new worldview helps to turn the plane around. This is not a time for bravado and misplaced confidence. It’s a time to take calculated risks — recognizing the stakes and troubleshooting ahead of time. In the moment, things could happen very fast, but if we’ve practiced, imagined, and otherwise prepared ourselves in advance, this New Moon supports bold moves and quantum leaps. We can literally transcend the prior limitations of our own minds.

Mercury and the North Node in Taurus squaring Saturn in Aquarius put extra emphasis on the need for sober, practical risk assessment. This is not a time for pie in the sky “oh, it’ll all work out” thinking. It’s a time to look Truth in the face and come up with innovative solutions to a seemingly hopeless and impossible state of affairs. Only by facing hard, cold reality, can we tap into the level of inspiration and support we need. Divine help is at hand, but we aren’t inclined to receive that help if we don’t think we need it.

The saying, “There are no atheists in foxholes” tracks with this New Moon. Neptune in Pisces sextile Mercury and the North Node, and a sextile to the New Moon from Jupiter/Mars in Aries add to our capacity for faith. But we need to ground that faith in action and understanding. A true partnership with the Divine will turn the plane around. Without that alignment, the plane will probably crash. All odds point to disaster, but in those moments of greatest desperation — when we synchronize with Divine Will — miracles happen. God helps those who help themselves, and in the darkest times, God performs the greatest feats.

Prepare yourself, because now is such a time.

Addendum: I had this post already written and scheduled for 5:55 a.m. publication. It’s 2:53 a.m., and I just wrote up a dream during which I realized that this New Moon offers a chance to set intentions for later this Fall when Mars crosses that same point in Gemini.

Watch for flickers (aka previews) of issues and concerns leading up to this May 30th New Moon. These will offer hints of future trajectories, which we can shift by recognizing the signs ahead of time. Use this awareness to set intentions and create strategies for later this year and into 2023.

This can be a personal or collective process. If you have significant placements around 5-15 Gemini (plus Sagittarius, Pisces or Virgo), you’ll be most affected by the New Moon. If you have natal placements or relationship synastry around 20-29 degrees Taurus or Aquarius (plus Scorpio or Leo), you’ll be most affected by the Mercury/North Node square Saturn aspect that occurs at the time of the New Moon. With the North Node involved, everyone will be affected in some way, but people with those degrees will receive most of the “Achtung, Baby!” around the time of this New Moon.

I view this as a gift from that Jupiter/Mars sextile — a master daredevil telling you how to fly your plane. Think of it as support for pulling a Blue Angels turnaround instead of crashing and burning. Again: help is available. This is a literal “heads up” to see the amazing opportunity so you can seize it and fly high instead of crashing and burning.
