Thursday, New Years Eve 2015
The Moon remains in Virgo until 2016 and she will be at the 29th master degree here in Austin (CST), as we bring in the New Year. Virgo is all about Service and Inner Alignment… that place where we bring our thoughts, feelings and actions into balance.
Imbalances can bring up our sense of individual worth and I see today as a day to clean that up as best we can. Overthinking and criticism manifest when we loose our alignment… rebalancing this is an inside job where we can ground ourselves with honed integrity that knows the truth… Source knows your worthiness is never in question. You must know it too and loving yourself beyond conditions, gets you there.
Let’s walk into the New Year feeling whole as we can, no matter what is going on outside of us. Yes, our world is riddled with chaos and yes, it is bursting with beauty at the same time. This is a reflection of our human condition as we awaken during this amazing shift on Earth (2012- 2017). Our place of power is where and what we choose to focus on in each moment. Getting your inner being aligned with your Highest Vision and Love of Self, is the best way to serve this planet and humanity.
We are sitting on the precipice of more great change and although there is nothing particularly meaningful about the arbitrary date for the New Year… it is a powerful collective agreement point to start anew. We are more powerful than we know and 2016 is a year to more intensely recognize the power to manifest with our focus and intention.
The new Feminine/Masculine balance that is emerging will lead the way in how we create our new world. So may I suggest that we step into 2016, prepared to be more loving, more awake, more patient and more courageous… with a renewed willingness to light-en our load, with a new level of dedication to clearing and releasing what no longer serves the highest good of ourselves and all concerned.
Thank you all for your support and your love, I will be here next year, ready to serve :)
Many Blessings to All and Big, Big Love!
The Moon is in service oriented Virgo most of the day and runs the gambit of aspects, indicating that we will experience lots of little shifts today.
Venus is now in optimistic Sagittarius, where she loves to travel, explore and search for deeper truth. Be aware that Venus in Sagittarius values her space in relationships and she will rebel from feeling restricted. Our heart Chakra will be getting a clearing… sweep out the cobwebs and old feelings that no longer belong to your new Self. This is in effect until she moves on to Capricorn on January 23rd, 2016.
The Mercury stepping stone is still resonating and its all about integration and patience with Mercury in Sagittarius and Mars in Virgo. Keeping a steady pace will serve us well.
The Moon forms a Bridge to Neptune and we find ourselves needing to discern what is fact and what is illusion. A lunar stepping stone square to Saturn at 10:35 AM can give us just the reality check we need to make a choice. Don’t allow doubt to undermine your personal power.
A trine between the Sun and Moon in the early morning, combined with a Moon/Pluto trine in the afternoon, can bring some much needed grounding to the flow of this day, while so much transformation is occurring in our lives.Its a good day to focus on being of service, cleaning up and tying up loose ends as we head towards the beginning of a new year that starts after midnight tomorrow night.
We awaken into a lovely sextile between the Sun in Capricorn and Neptune in Pisces this morning. What a perfect frequency for getting in touch with “l Let Love Rule” and it is in all or our best interests to allow some moments to tune into this. Our consciousness has the opportunity to connect to resources associated with our highest vision… our Soul's Dream. Venus is posed at the master 29th degree of Scorpio in Pluto's sign and there is inspiration from your highest Source concerning transformation and resurrection, speaking to our hearts today… if we will only listen.
The Moon, still in Leo, sextiles Mars in Libra this morning and boldness and the courage to act in a cooperative way leaps forward. How do we engage others into our plan? Carefully!
We have a steppingstone square at the same time between Mercury and Mars that can complicate how we communicate, if we are not paying attention to our intention. Thinking and communicating rubs up against taking action and we need to pace our words with an awareness that someone may not agree or understand us. This is just an opportunity to rise to a new level of cooperation. Take your time and let your Vision lead the way, watch out for the impatience the Ego loves to interject… that comes from fear.
The Moon enters Virgo at 1:00 PM and this can bring an expectation for dedication and perfection and make us more sensitive to criticism. Watch out for being too hard on yourself, or someone else. Don’t let the details overwhelm you. Focus on how to be of service and if there are steps that have to be repeated… thats not a bad thing. It’s a process we are in, we are always in it. No matter where you get to there is always the next step, so be sure to notice the moment and appreciate this beautiful Mother Earth. She is reflecting back to us our inner turmoil, as we go through this great change.
Send her Love and Love yourself.
Welcome to the 1st day of the last week of 2015! We have an inspirational fire trine between the Leo Moon and Uranus in Aries… energy wants to move, what do you want to do?
This is a great day to look forward to 2016 and ask yourself, what do you want to bring into the New Year and what needs to be left behind, reorganized or reconfigured? Having just gotten back from a long trip… I can tell you it’s am unpacking, closet reorganization and purging for me right now.
Today there is no time like the present to get started, with a newly awakened perspective about where you are and where you want to go. If you feel restless.. pour that fire energy into a project , or revamp your health routine… or just play! Move your body and celebrate the gift of life and let your inner child step forward.
Details will always need to be handled and we can do some of that today. Just don’t forget to look up, reach out and find your inspiration. I plan on finishing unpacking and then going for a run… well maybe just a nice walk and let the winds of change blow my hair back :)
We have the rare gift of a Full Moon in Cancer on this Christmas Day. The Moon is at home in her sign of Cancer and the focus is on our emotions, nurturing, mothering and family. If you are flying solo today, find a way to do something very caring for yourself and reach out and do something nice for someone else as well. Many people will be emotional and easily moved to tears. We all want to know we matter!
The heightened emotions are not something to run from today… great healing is available and we can clear family karma and reconnect to the heart center of our relationships within the family structure. Old woulds can be dissolved and forgiveness and compassion can lead the way.
It’s amazing that Uranus, (the planet of awakening) turns direct today and is illuminated by a Full Moon in Cancer that trines Juno and Neptune. This grand water trine opens up a very tender place in our hearts, inviting Goddess energy and an upgraded Masculine to join in a new and more evolved way.
If you were to introduce your feminine and masculine sides to each other (within your newly awakened being), what would they say to each other?
How do they relate today?
Do they communicate well with one another?
Does one overpower the other?
Are there unspoken resentments that need clearing?
Is there great Love and appreciation there?
It’s worth a look!
Jupiter and the North Node are trining Mercury and Pallas Athena in the Earth signs! Destiny plays a part today in some important communications, wisdom shines and commitments can be made that can have lasting value. Talk about what makes you happy and renew your faith in the future. Get present and remember that Love is everywhere all the time and we can step up into it with one breath…in the flash of a moment.
For all of you who celebrate Christmas… May you have a fabulous One!
Big Big Love,
December 24th, Christmas Eve
Venus will form a sextile with Jupiter before sunrise today (Scorpio/Virgo) and this is always considered to be a good vibe aspect, one to be fully enjoyed. Relationships, romance and fulfilled desires are celebrated. How lovely for a Christmas Eve.
It does come with one caveat:
Watch out for over indulgence, inflated expectations and preconceived ideas, that you project onto others in an attempt to meet you own needs.
The Moon moves into Cancer at 11:28 PM tonight and leads to the Full Moon on Christmas Day. Many emotions are running high and people can be extra sensitive in general at this time. If you keep your own expectations in check and allow others to be as they are… you will set a good examples, as you take responsibility for your own happiness. Keep a flexible attitude, choose to be nurturing instead of controlling…choose to be respectful instead of condescending… choose to be helpful instead of needy.
Find your sense of humor and dance with it into the light!
I will be back to regular daily writings after the 28th of December, until then random writings will be posted :)
Tuesday, December 22nd
We have a Void Taurus Moon starting at 8:27 AM Central Time, that lasts until she enters Gemini at 8:32 PM… so basically the entire day and evening.
The pace will feel more settled and a bit slower and that’s just fine if we can flow with it. The rest of the week, the energy cranks up and this ‘pause’ in the intensity can help us to rest and regroup, as we head towards Christmas. Please… no pushing through!
Allow and flow and if you find yourself stressing…head for the out of doors and make contact with the trees. It’s cold and damp where I am, but I will get out there and I invite you to join me in tuning into the beauty of this ‘going inward’ season.
I woke up this morning hearing a very strong message from within, repeating over and over again and even though I’ve read it and heard it spoken many times… there is that moment when integration and visceral understanding brings it to a brand new place.
The message was:
After all the seeking and all the longing, the only place I will truly find Love and Joy is in the Present Moment.
It’s the old “Be Here Now’ message that has been around for Ever! It’s really amazing - when we diligently make the effort to practice it - how difficult we find it to do!!! The Past and the Future are not happening and yet we spend so much time attempting to be in one of the other. There is nothing to do except notice we got off track (I have learned to laugh at it) and refocus our intention, with compassion and understanding that there is no race.
Again, remember moment to moment be kind to yourself and others… as best you can. We are in the middle of the labor pains of birthing a new World and we need to breath and love our way through it.
This is a special day in numerology, these numbers speak to portals opening and downloads and upgrades to our consciousness. Be sure to go with your guidance today. Many of us are needing extra rest. Much of the shifts in our DNA are happening during sleep. Don’t underestimate the importance of rest and sleep right now… self care is essential for integrating these enemies and many times, comfortable changes.
There is a need to keep the faith as we venture into this uncharted territory. Don't let weird body stuff and fatigue cause you to doubt and think you are off course. We are all learning and realigning as we go.
The Moon is in Capricorn all day and harmonizes with Neptune, Saturn and Venus. Meanwhile Venus and Saturn help us to grow some stability to our heart's vision. The energy today is flowing with greater ease, as we step out from the New Moon seed sowing... towards actions that will bring our intentions into physical form.

The New Moon happened at 4:30 AM this morning and we will have until just after midnight tomorrow to dance in the Sagittarius lunar energy that kicks off this Sun/Moon union. As you know by now, New Moons are powerful times to set new intentions and this one is full of fire and inspiration and it emphasizes an expansion of our vision and our sense of adventure internally and externally.
I am going to light a fire pit tonight and sit with a few dear friends and share our deepest dreams, inner truths, good laughs and say good by to outworn habits that no longer nurture who we have become. Being out in nature tonight will be a special treat and I encourage all of us to wonder outside.
The New Moon always leads to the Full Moon and this year, the Full Moon falls on Christmas Day… this hasn’t happened since 1977. So this New Moon adds to the big build up to Christmas, as what we start now comes to fruition on Christmas Day.
This New Moon is about Liberation! Free your inner world, free your mind, free yourself from any old story that you have been carrying that weighs you down and hurts your heart. Free yourself!
Chiron is challenging the Moon and is linked by a bridge (opposition) to Jupiter and Jupiter rules this New Moon. Integrity matters… what do you need to do to be in integrity with your own truth, not someone else’s? Take your dreams seriously, they are written on your heart for a reason. Plant your feet on the ground and steer clear of crazy exaggerations. We will need to walk our talk to live our dream.
The bridge between Mars and Uranus is opening us up in ways we haven't experienced before. If this intense fire is not channeled thru some kind of creativity of physical outlet, it can lead to aggressive outbursts and intense restlessness. Don’t let that happen; be pro active with your energy by directing it positively.
Mars sextiles the Moon (harness resources),Uranus trines the Moon (fiery inspiration and independence), while Venus and Neptune swim in a harmonious water trine (romance, music and art flourish) that softens the cosmic concoction. So you see this is a very rich mixture.
Allow yourself to find up-liftment, look for inspiration and have courage and faith that you can move outside your comfort zone and explore new territory. The old ways that no longer serve the new world are being left behind.
Big wheels keep on turning… it’s how we are manifesting a new world of elevated vibration. It’s not always easy giving birth and today could be full of labor pains and/or the joys of awakening to a greater Love. Everything is perspective and as I humbly share mine, remember that this is coming through my perception and it’s not about what is right, it’s about evolution and love.
At 6:07 AM we have a square - between the Moon Sagittarius and Neptune in Pisces, suggesting that our highest vision and our imagination are having to work something out. As a result we might feel that we lack clarity and feel uncertain about what to do. It’s all ok, we are headed into more powerful awakening stuff ( yes more!). If you hit a fog bank driving 70 miles an hour, you must slow down, as visibility is temporarily limited. Same here… slow down and watch carefully, mindfully.
It’s purposeful… we need to do some fine tuning with our spiritual body and the increasing speed of the holiday season has taken many of us far from that. We are at the end of a lunar cycle and a New Moon happens tomorrow at 4:30 AM, so this is prep for that new beginning time. More on that tomorrow.
By 9:04 AM the Moon conjoins Saturn and an ability to bring a vision into reality begins to take shape. Any restriction you may feel may have a hidden support beam built into it. We need a little structure right now with all the fire energy of Sagittarius and Saturn can keep us from burning too hot.
The Big Wheel aspect today is a bridge between Mars in Libra and Uranus in Aries. Here is where our physical world and our urge to take action sits across from Uranus, the Great Awakener. We have an opportunity here to receive major inspirations and the Libra/Aries connection is all about relationships and the mirrored self. Mars in Libra is working on balancing our values, our inner masculine/feminine, and how to bring more beauty into physical reality. Uranus in Aries continues to fire up realizations and revolutions for big changes.
Traditionally this has shown up as freedom seeking actions taken before thinking… impulsive, restless choices that spark rebellion… either from ourselves, or someone who shows up in our Movie. Choose to awaken rather than run, Choose to own what is your’s and not project onto the other. Allow your liberation movement to be internal. Listen to the downloads and insights coming in… freedom is an inside job first, then the external world will reflect it back to us. Sparks of brilliance are flying.
