Date Synchronicities Over the Next 5 to 13 Days

I awoke with instructions to record anniversaries and birthdays starting today:


12/16/2017  our friend Tim Martin died

12/17/2017  I learned that Tim died

12/17/2020 Saturn leaves Capricorn

12/18  (brother) Craig’s birthday

12/18/2003  I married Stephen Bruno

12/19  Ann Kreilkamp’s birthday

12/19/2017   Saturn entered Capricorn

12/20  Linette’s birthday (took over our Goshen house and garden)

12/20/2019  Winter Solstice Eve; Womb/Owl/Coyote Initiation

12/21/2015 Winter Solstice and David’s daughter’s graduation (powerful transformative event for all of us)

12/21/2016 Winter Solstice and I married David

12/21/2019 Winter Solstice and more over the top synchronicities

12/21/2020 Winter Solstice Great Conjunction of Jupiter/Saturn closest in 800 years, within 1 degree of my natal Moon.

12/29/2020  Second Cancer Full Moon in 2020, on my South Node 

12/31/2009  Filed for divorce from Stephen Bruno on New Year’s Eve, the last day of the decade Blue Moon

What all this portends, I don’t know. Here are extracts of comments I made to a couple friends this morning:

Also, Mars just crossed my and the US natal Chiron, which is being sextiled by the transiting North Node, which is still within a degree of my natal Saturn, which has been getting pummeled/quincunxed all year by the Saturn-Pluto conjunction, as well as squared by Neptune.

My natal Saturn conjuncts the US natal Mars, which also conjuncts Donald Trump’s natal Sun/Uranus/North Node conjunction, and all these points are currently being conjuncted by the transiting North Node — collective destiny point. This same point is being sextiled by transiting warrior individualistic Mars conjuncting my and the US’s natal Chiron, the Wound/Wounded Healer.

Continual earthquakes, combined with a North Node conjunction, my Chiron opposite Uranus activation, and Neptune’s erosion. Earlier part of my dreams indicated surrender is my ONLY viable option right now. Saturn doesn’t like surrender, but I just need to float with wherever and whenever the current takes me.

Given how my life tends to parallel the collective, this seems like we are in the throws of birth pangs. When the water breaks … and it will … watch out. The flood is coming.

I’m curious to see what, when, how, and where everything unfolds. What gets birthed … because the energies are definitely moving.

To a different friend, I wrote, “It feels like a divinely directed storm at sea. … I feel a powerful protective force, so much so that it feels unnatural to doubt anymore, but I’m also aware of roiling waves and a massive storm at sea.”

I know others are feeling these energies to varying degrees of intensity. I feel oddly calm and well prepared for whatever the life force brings. Blessings, love, peace and clarity to all….

A Rare Alignment of Planets after 800 Years on December 21, 2020

I saw this last evening while leaving an acupuncture appointment. We could see both Jupiter and Saturn steadily shining in the sky.

I am blessed to receive door to door acupuncture service, and just as we pulled near our house, she and I saw two deer in our next door neighbor’s yard. She exclaimed, “That’s a good sign!”

Indeed, and when I watched this video this morning, I remembered we saw the two deer right after noticing Jupiter and Saturn together in the sky. Signs and wonder abound for those with eyes to see.

More Office Activations

I shared some recent threshold activations, but magical synchronicities continue to highlight my office after key dreams and visions.

Short excerpt from my 11/22/2020 dream journal:

A dead, stuffed lynx came to life and approached me at the table. I was ecstatic about this lynx. It completely delighted and enchanted me. I was petting it, rubbing its belly like a dog, then petting it more.The more I pet and rubbed the lynx, the more it came alive. At first it was kind of stiff because it was dead and stuffed, but it was becoming more and more lynx-like. Flexible, strong, magical.

The lynx was part of a longer dream involving major soul contract work. “There was a waiting period, but I didn’t care about that because I was having so much fun with this lynx.” Its presence thrilled me so much that the dream lifted me all day. The following morning, I walked into my office to see this spontaneous highlight:

Laura Daligan’s Goddess Freya with two lynxes

This painting by Laura Daligan sits behind my desk and some ivy. I bought it years ago and hadn’t given it a close look in months. Traditionally, the Goddess Freya has two blue cats, as I depicted her in my Freya and Frigga portal door. Laura Daligan opted for two lynxes, but I had totally forgotten that. To walk into my office first thing in the morning and see the lynxes highlighted the day after my lynx dream was … wow … another synchronous whammy. I have never seen this painting highlighted before or since.

My favorite Animal Spirits website is back online, so I looked up lynx:

Lynx’s Wisdom Includes:

  • Keenness of sight
  • Divination
  • Developing psychic senses
  • Keeper of all secrets and mysteries
  • Movement through time and space

These are realms I embrace, so I took the lynx dream and synchronous highlight as confirmation of the soul contract work initiated in the dream.

Yesterday afternoon, I happened to catch this crystal activation right after my lunch break:

 

These are untouched photos. I really could see with my naked eyes the light looking like angel wings in the bottom photo.

As with the Freya-lynx highlight and the Hermit Portal Activation, this crystal activation occurred after a powerful dream about a formalized agreement. In the dream, I held up my right hand and said, “I do solemnly swear I will not worry about this anymore.”

After recording the dream, I did morning yoga, and as I lay in Savasana, I heard in my head: “The Lord will perfect that which concerns me.” Thinking this was a Bible verse, I looked it up when I got off the mat:

The Lord will perfect that which concerns me;
Your mercy, O Lord, endures forever;
Do not forsake the works of Your hands.

~Psalm 108:8

Seeing those glowing crystal angel wings after my dream ceremony and yoga message seemed to say, “Yes, confirmed. Despite outward appearances in this crazy world, all is well. Trust.”

Everything reveals itself as perfectly aligned when we pay less attention to time, and more attention to timing. I’ll leave you with a little jingle that came to me years ago in a dream, still one of my favorites: “In perfect love and perfect trust, perfect timing is a must.”

Love and blessings!

At the Threshold of Jupiter Conjunct Saturn

I keep having dreams of doors, latches that cannot and should not be locked, and thresholds. I also keep having bizarre experiences at the threshold of my office. These feel orchestrated, “impossible,” and then, upon further investigation link to a spiderweb of dreams going back decades.

I shared some of these threshold experiences in other posts:

Aftermath, New Moon in Taurus: Starting Over from Zero

The Hermit is Active!

The Lion Dream

Last night as I crossed the threshold of my office, my left knee bent and my leg involuntarily lifted itself up high, then smashed my heel right on the raised wooden threshold. It hurt, but not too bad — more like a dramatic way of getting my attention. This linked to the experience I described on October 25, 2020, where — after a potent dream — the glass of water I was holding as I approached this same threshold spontaneously sprinkled water over the wooden threshold, like a sacred offering.

Because of the connection between the experiences, I looked up my reblog of Aftermath, New Moon in Taurus: Starting Over from Zero … only to discover another web of dream, astrology and “real” life synchronicities. It’s like a fractal of synchronicities. Because of so many recent dreams about doors and thresholds, I’ve been asking, “Which threshold?”

This article from AstroButterfly came through as I sat down at my desk. It confirmed a persistent sense I’ve had about the upcoming Jupiter Saturn Conjunction at 0° Aquarius on Winter Solstice. (11:11 a.m. right this moment as I type!)

In addition to powerful collective implications, this Great Conjunction occurs within 1° of my natal Aquarius Moon, so I’ve been tracking it for awhile. I also had potent initiatory experiences last Winter Solstice Eve, and David and I got married on Winter Solstice 2016. Is this the threshold my dreams say I’m approaching? Time will tell.

Certainly we, as a collective, are in a doorway of some sort. Where does it lead? Despite all the chaos and uncertainty of our times, my dreams continue to show me a beautiful future. Yes, it involves a death and rebirth in order to get there, but from what I’ve seen, it’s worth the Plutonian journey. I encourage everyone to check out the post Jupiter Conjunct Saturn — A New Order, as it gives an easy to understand overview of the coming energies.

I’ll leave you with two recent photos of the threshold to my office, both recent activations. The first I shared in the Hermit is Active post:

The Hermit Portal by Laura Bruno

After a powerful, spiritual and expansive vision, I came home to find light hitting the portal so that the lantern lit up the image, as though real. The second photo is from a couple days later, same threshold but with the door open.

I later noticed that I emailed it to myself at 5:55 p.m. As I shared in my repeating numbers post:

Repeating 5’s indicate big changes on the way. Even good changes can feel stressful, so prepare yourself for shifts. When you see 555’s, get focused on what you do want instead of repeating all the things you don’t want. If you feel frustrated at the slowness of changes, know that they are coming. If you’ve wanted out of something, put whatever things in place you’ll need for when that something falls away. Affirmation: (The Serenity Prayer) “God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”

11:22 now as I type. On the outside of this same threshold is The Messenger owl from Orgonia — a Winter Solstice 2017 gift from my friend/Soul Bro Mitch:

The Messengers plaque by Orgonia

This plaque, in turn, was inspired by a series of synchronicities that Bo shares in the product description:

“Synchronicity is an ever present reality for those who have eyes to see.”
Carl Jung

This much larger owl plaque was inspired by an uncanny spate of “owl synchronicities” that happened to me this last (2015) Thanksgiving. As the synchronicities began to pile up over the space of a week I began to reconstruct where the whole affair had probably begun.
A synopsis – my family was on a jaunt to Houston, TX (where much of my extended family lives,) and one of our excursions took us to the Menil Museum which houses an extensive collection of African masks and ritual objects. Particularly arresting were the owl effigies and in particular this one at which I lingered for some time:

The next day we were treated to a private showing of a wonderful little documentary (Rara Avis) about John Audubon in which his owl prints figured prominently.

Then upon returning home on Monday Orgonia started getting orders for owl plaques one after another – four in a row – one order being for 5 plaques – with the final tally being 8 owl plaques ordered consecutively. The first owl plaque had been ordered by someone who lived a few miles from the Austin, TX airport from which we had flown home. The last order in the “run” came in from Australia.

As this pattern was unfolding I emailed my friend Laura Bruno, whose “alternative” blog is one of my favorites, to get her reaction and feedback. Owl synchronicities are a much rumored if still obscure phenomenon, but I figured if anyone had some interesting chatter about this it would be Laura. The very next day she sent me an exclamatory email linking to that mornings’s debut on Amazon of a 400 page collection of owl synchronicity stories which book I highly recommend (“E. Long” is my Amazon reviewer name.)

Make of this what you will it certainly grabbed my attention and set me on the road to coming up with a bigger owl statement in my orgonite plaque line up. This Great Horned Owl has the gravitas and refinement I was looking for. It’s a big hunk of orgonite energy beaming out through the eyes of potent being.

All of this comes full spiral to ongoing owl synchronicities shared on my blog, as well as me sharing my experiences in Mike Clelland’s book, Stories from the Messengers and in an interview on The Unseen Podcast. Here’s my review of The Messengers, mentioned in Bo’s product writeup.

What does it all mean? I don’t know, but these synchronicities, owls, doors and threshold activations seem very precise and ongoing. If you enjoy rabbit holes, I recommend all the links in this post. If you only read one, though, do check out AstroButterfly’s post about Jupiter Conjunct Saturn on Winter Solstice 2020. That’s a collective transit, but as with SO many collective transits this past year plus, it hits my chart in a very personal way. It doesn’t get much more personal than something conjuncting one’s natal Moon.

Blessings, courage, love and magic to all, as we approach the threshold.

New Moon in Leo

Tomorrow’s New Moon at 26 Leo offers a chance to reset to a more empowered form of leadership.

I’ve been busy doing sessions, working on a commissioned portal painting, gardening and taking in another wonderful day of sun, shade, sand and waves at Lake Michigan, so I’ll direct you to two insightful posts:

The first is from Astrobutterfly: New Moon in Leo — Leadership is Who You Are.

The second is an analysis of the USA natal chart, by Ann Kreilkamp: US Internal Violence is a Symptom of Energy Run Amuck.

Ann is quite open about her thoughts on geopolitics, Shadow Work, and the upcoming first Pluto Return for the US. Wherever you fall on the polarized political spectrum, this Pluto Return — the first time in 248 years — will affect you. Even now, before it gets more exact in 2023, we’re feeling the destructive force of Pluto in Capricorn — intensified by Saturn and Jupiter there, as well. All of that now squares Mars in Aries, to varying degrees of exactness, creating friction between individual and authority, as well as ego (Mars) and the Force of Nature (Pluto).  Jupiter expands what it touches, and hopefully brings some big benefits, too, but this Capricorn cluster continues to pummel the USA natal chart’s Cancer locations.

Paying attention to Collective astro weather reports helps us take advantage of the energies instead of being taking off guard by them. Rain might ruin a picnic — or you can plan for a pavilion, or delight in not needing to water the garden. Everything has value.

Everything.

I often write of the uncanny ways my own natal chart matches up to the key astro alignments we’ve been going through, and how this will continue for me with eerie precision through at least 2025. I was surprised/not surprised to find some major connections between the USA natal chart and my own natal, as well as progressed charts. One of the biggest ones is that my natal Chiron and the USA’s natal Chiron are both at 19-20 Aries.

This means that the insanely long Pluto square Chiron transit I’ve had since February 2016 right before my dad went on hospice, has also been happening to the US itself. It has slightly moved off a direct hit, but I’ve described this transit as both brutal and incredibly healing. It has required a complete unearthing of all childhood wounds, Shadow Work, and the ways in which my weaknesses have become my strengths. The ways in which I am very much a Wounded Healer. On the USA front, so many horrible revelations have come forth, with more on the way … and we, as a country, have an opportunity for tremendous healing.

In addition to the Chiron connection, the US Mars conjuncts my natal Saturn, and my progressed Sun is at 16 Cancer, while the US natal Sun is 13 Cancer. The US Jupiter is on my natal Vesta — a healer and keeper of the sacred flame. My Isis and Asbolus (both seers) are within 2 degrees of the USA’s 6 Leo North Node. Lots and lots of connections — way more than I’m sharing here. The upcoming, monumental Pluto Return at 27 Capricorn conjuncts my natal vertex at 28 Capricorn, which, in turn, exactly trines my 28 Taurus Midheaven.

I’ve intensely felt Saturn crossing that 27-28 Capricorn point, and it reminds me of a dream I had last October. I’ve shared it before in one of the Precognitive Blues posts. It involved special mandala floors that would ensure everyone gets where they need to go “in the event of an earthquake.” You can think of Pluto as the earthquake, with Saturn going ahead and forging these special mandala floors. Even as so many old structures crumble, upgrades and renovation are in the works. There is much to be grateful for amidst the chaos and confusion — for those with eyes to see.

As intense as things can sometimes feel, blessings abound. Make sure to care for your inner child, your body and emotions. You will lead from a stronger, more empowered place if you tend to the scared, grieving or lonely spots. From vulnerability comes great strength.

Blessed Be … and be the blessing.

Owls, Dragons and Zebra Elephants: when dreams spill into “real” life

Yesterday, we took a lovely morning walk along the shores of Lake Michigan in Van Buren State Park, which we had not visited since March 2018:

IMG_2967

IMG_2960

It always feels so good to get in or near a large body of water, especially since I continue having disconcerting, yet encouraging dreams. Yesterday was no exception.

What’s weird is that the entire day ended up echoing a series of three dreams I had on 6/26/2020. One of those dreams featured a professor from Africa — a world renowned owl expert — and her daughter living in an apartment with cheerful pink bedspreads and a massive amount of zebras. When David and I saw this mural with the hot pink background, he wanted to take a photo since I kind of looked like I could be on safari anyway:

IMG_4417

Who knew the rare zebra elephant roamed so close to Lake Michigan?

I immediately flashed on my dream with the pink bedspreads and all the dramatic zebras, but I didn’t realize until later in the day how much 6/26/2020 dream bleedthrough the day had already been bringing. Continue reading

Astro Butterfly ~ 1001 Nights

I’m posting the link to this Astro Butterfly post because a) May 22 is my birthday; b) this New Moon occurs right between my natal Sun and Mercury; and c) I had a beautiful dream about Scheherazade from One Thousand and One Nights, on the night of May 13, right as Venus went Retrograde. That’s a triple whammy sync among many other syncs, so I assume this is a significant New Moon, for me, as well as others. Here’s the link.

Door Number 21: The Hermit Portal

I finished painting this portal on May 14, 2020, right around the time Jupiter went retrograde. I needed to wait for paint and glue to dry, but mostly, I needed better light for photographing it. Michigan rivals the Pacific Northwest sometimes! I love the gloomy days, but they don’t make for good indoor photographs. This “door” has been knocking on my subconscious for months. I thought I’d begin the weekend of March 29th, tapping into the world’s pandemic “hermit” mode; however, when the world goes crazy, I get busy. I’ve had so many sessions that I didn’t even start working on it until the week of May 4th.

As usual with these portals, astrological timing superseded my own plans. May 4, 2020 marked the actual crossquarter day of Beltane, when the Sun crosses 15 degrees Taurus. Beltane is a fire and purification festival, and also one of two key times the trooping faeries change residence — the other being Samhain, on or near Halloween. Even before I knew much about astrology, the doors — literal then, now sometimes canvas with painted doors — either featured astrological signatures or began or finished on key dates like Easter Sunday or Pentecost. This Hermit portal is Door Number 21:

IMG_4096

The bottom isn’t crooked like it looks. I just can’t get it to photograph or crop right on my phone. The bottom and right edges are gray and the darker blue. The lighter blue is the wall behind it in my office. For some reason, whenever I try to photograph doors or canvases, something weird happens with the angles. By now, I’m used to it, but just to clarify, the portal itself ends with the gray rock and dark blue sky. Continue reading

Time Dreams and a Podcast

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

I left those dreams as a comment on her site, but I’ll share them here, too. I highly recommend this podcast to anyone feeling a huge disparity between right and left brain messages. I know many people keep receiving vivid dreams and visions that seem so real, yet so unrelated to current life circumstances. Ann’s podcast shares different levels of trust, and why this theme seems so “up” right now for so many. (Hint: Saturn and Pluto, though not exactly conjunct, remain super close in Capricorn.)

Anyway, here’s my comment, and here’s the link to CroneCast 11:

Great podcast!

Synchronously, before listening to this, two dreams this morning featured “Time” as a topic, including a wall of dozens of circular clocks, all synchronized, all being kept warm by a “hot plate wall” behind them. The message was one I keep getting, “high vibe and filled with life force energy,” a theme that keeps showing up in dreams about death, mud or dusty wreaths filled with seeds. This particular dream implied that we could “eat Time” and that this time banquet was being prepared and kept warm by amazing cosmic time chefs who knew exactly when and how to serve the right moments as a feast.

In the prior dream, I was in a clothing store, second story, somewhere in Idaho. The female clerk told me that in order to find what I wanted, I needed to cross the street. I went downstairs and began to cross the street, which turned into an intimidatingly wide street.

I crossed at a crosswalk, but the light went through several cycles as I made my way across the street. I was wearing high heeled, intricately carved wooden shoes, which I realized I could not continue to walk in. I took them off, and my bare feet couldn’t continue walking on this road, either. I was already in the middle of the road with cars on both sides. I dropped to my knees, kneeling, and “walking” on my knees across the street.

I worried that no one could see me so low to the ground, that I would get run over. Then I realized that none of the drivers of the cars seemed to notice the lights had changed. Time had either slowed down or stopped for them while I made my way — safely — across the street. When I arrived at the other store, traffic resumed. The store had exactly what I wanted, even though I didn’t know I was looking for it. I left wearing the new clothes.

I love your mantra at the end: “Let the tide carry me, whether it goes in or out.” I think I’ll adopt that one, too. So many Plutonian dreams this past few months! My goodness, it’s Pluto central … with Saturn thrown in trying to stop the tide. 🙂 Thank you.

A Scarab Dream, Leap Year, and Synchronous Bugs

My dreams continue their heightened symbols and messages. Last night I awoke from one with the phrase “Venus Square Pluto” in my head. I assumed it meant something from a natal chart, synastry or transit, but I got up and did as I always do when I awake with a particular phrase. I ran an online search and opened the first link. Almost every time I do that, the first link features key information that answers a question or underscores an earlier message.

In this case, the first link said, “Venus Square Pluto February 28, 2020.” I’ve had a number of recent dreams and synchronicities around “leap,” “Leap Year Day” and February 29, 2020. Having a phrase link to a date within 24 hours of that timeframe jumped out at me as a major synchronicity.

I fell back asleep and dreamed a convoluted, highly coded dream that featured symbols specific to me and possibly related to the first dream’s date. At the very end of that dream, a huge scarab beetle superimposed itself onto my dream “screen.” It looked like a movie where the camera zooms in on just one image for effect. Knowing that Carl Jung coined the phrase “synchronicity” after the appearance of a scarab beetle that echoed the scarab jewelry in a client’s just-described dream, this scarab beetle zoom seemed like an announcement: “Pay attention! Synchronicity is in effect.”

I wrote up both dreams in my dream journal and then continued to ponder implications in my regular journal. When I began journaling, I noticed a stinkbug creeping along the line between wall and ceiling. Michigan has a stinkbug infestation, and we get stinkbugs in our house sometimes. They like to come in through our fireplace. When they get low enough, I catch them with a plastic cup and piece of manila folder, then send them flying outside. They’re annoying, but harmless, just creeping along.

At one point, I listed several questions in my journal, kind of asking for confirmation of my interpretation. Just at that moment, the stinkbug dropped to the ground. I thought, “Mr. Stinkbug, you’ve made this rather easy,” and caught him in the cup. He didn’t move at all, and I thought he might have dropped dead at that very moment. I threw him outside. Instead of flying away, he plopped on his back in the snow.

Odd. Stinkbugs and scarabs are both types of beetles.

I continued journaling, then looked up various symbols in my dream. At some point, I thought to reblog a post today, not knowing which one. I typed in “leap year” and the following post came up: “Happy (Quantum) Leap Year!” I originally blogged it on February 29, 2012 and reblogged it on February 5, 2014. That means I can’t reblog it again, but when I reread the post, it seemed oddly related to today’s dreams and sync’s. More bugs — in this case bees, an infinity symbol, Runes, as well as more death and life imagery. My dreams, visions and synchronicities continue to feature a theme of Life in Death — a theme that seems highly charged and related to the ongoing close conjunction of Saturn and Pluto. I had completely forgotten about this potent dream. Here’s the original post from Leap Year Day 2012:

Happy Quantum Leap Year!

I awoke this morning from a dream in which I identified the Hagalaz Rune to a former college professor of mine. He had begun to show me his latest research, found in a rare book with an ornate Hagalaz on the left page and a “picture” of an infinity sign made of bees on the other side. I put picture in quotes, because the bees buzzed around, keeping the infinity sign in living, breathing motion. “That’s Hagalaz!” I said to the professor, “Do you know what that means?!” I stared, transfixed by the bees, watching how their energy engaged the Rune, making it, too, seem to dance upon the page. Continue reading
