SupermoonX3

Yes, this is the third Super Full Moon in a row for our evolutionary acceleration. Supermoons move close to the Earth intensifying the tides in the ocean and tides of  emotion in all beings. This one sits itself in Scorpio so secrets will be uncovered in this month of November 2015.  Also, a karmic crush of people, places and things wash over us in this 11th power month of the year.

Let’s choose wisely those we choose to align and associate with, where we give our attention, where we choose to give service and where we spend our money.

This November is a month of choice and balance.

Much has been said about happiness, yet this month it will become increasingly clear where this sometimes illusive theme lies in our lives. Our choices illuminate where and when we have hit this mark, strayed from this theme and/or have hidden it deeply from ourselves.  The polarity between entitlement and unworthiness,  too much vs too little, is ripe for exploration now and leads to balance if we observe instead of react.

Simplification of almost every area of our lives creates the space to find what truly excites us. Living a passionate life is happiness.  In this passionate moon~th of Scorpio everything is intense and juicy if we slow down and FEEL!

The Supermoon in Scorpio ushers in themes of forgiveness, gratitude and faith in a huge way.  As we move ahead energetically, we must let go and trust our journey. Trust that we are guided and protected.

November is a blessed month. Let’s keep our vibration high by laughing, sharing random acts of kindness, singing, dancing and loving ourselves and others!

Full moon in Virgo

By now we all know what is good for us and what is not!  We can end the cycle of feeling bad about ourselves because of poor choices now.  The energies of this full moon in Virgo can help us do this if we slow down and feel into ourselves daily.  We are on the high road to the spring eclipse season.  This one is VERY powerful.  This is a controlled ascent to higher dimensions within and without.

The watery energy of Pisces is also upon us as we flow around our boulders of obstructions just like a river.  Pisces can herald in MAGIC.

With Mars retrograde in Libra until May 19, we may feel frustrated as projects stall.  This energy is here to strengthen us in one particular area.  This is individual and dpendeny upon wher this transiting Mars falls in the astrlogical chart.  Mars can fortify us as we hurtle toward the eclipse season if we allow it.  Let’s stay mindful of re-occurring dreams and situations.  Let’s take up this March-in Martian challenge.

This full moon in Virgo heightens our Body Speak.  If we don’t listen to ourown body needs now, we can fall ill.  Spring cleaning!  For most of us, this is a waste of energy so it becomes important to find alone time so we can check in with ourselves daily.  More sleep becomes necessary as we need rest to process and fortify ourselves.  This is imperative now.  As the end of April approaches, we must be rested to receive fully the energies of transformation and ascension that are coming.  This is a crucial year for the evolution of Gaia and all beings upon Her.  Please take ritual time to acknowledge this!

Stay mindfully in the present, grounded in LOVE, accepting and grateful.  These simple qualities are the cornerstones of this movement into higher dimensions which bring forth the GOLDEN AGE of peace, harmony, abundance, joy, community and celebration. 

And so it is…………….. Blessing to you all on this miraculous journey!

Easing through the Eye of the Storm

We embark on the great adventure of the second half of 2012 with this new moon, the summer solstice moving into the sign of Cancer and the first of seven powerful Uranus-Pluto squares that take us into 2014.

What a week!!

Please take care of yourselves, body, mind and soul, as these shifts require due diligence in the area of our attention. Where does our attention lie? What are we focused on predominantely throughout our day? Are we constantly distracted by this techno age or are we focused on an ideal? Are working toward something that betters ourselves, others and our planet?

It is so easy to fall into apathy when you smash into a wall. When we are personally tested, and seemingly derailed from our goals, we really begin to know ourselves and others around us. Do we stand back and look at the big picture of our lives with patience and perseverance or do we blame others and throw in the towel? Do we take responsiblity for our creations or rail against the Universe for delivering what we said we wanted in ways we had not anticipated?

These Uranus/ Pluto squares are here to shake up our world both personally and globally.

It is no accident that we have to move through a Venus Retrograde and a rare Venus transit to get here. At this moment of questionable time, we are about to use our training wheels to face problems and tests with unconditional love instead of the usual explosive aggression that has almost destroyed our home planet. This will be a two year period of baby steps. Will we actually learn about unconditonal love by doing it and being it? There will be many falls and restarts. Many apologies. Many who refuse to try or just cannot do it. Bottomline: Are we going to continue this old crusty way of being that handles every problem with a smoking gun of resentment, unshakeable intolerance, destructive apathy and entitlement of staggering proportions or move into this new way of being?

The seeds have been sown this week. Hopefully, we will look back at this time with appreciation. Hopefully, we will look back at this turning point and say this is when we all, as a global village, decided to LOVE instead of hate, to honor our home, to honor each other and to honor all beings everywhere.

On a personal note, we can each ease our way through these amazing aspects, which affect us and all life, by embracing change and being flexible. Allow other possibilities, people, physical locals, careers, to enter our lives. Let go and see the bigger picture behind any seeming loss. Let’s see the grand design for our lives and have faith in the Universe that it is not random and we are not tossed on an angry sea. There is purpose behind every action and every circumstance. Slow down and see, feel, touch, enjoy!

We are not here on this Earth to struggle. That is an illusion of our own making. We choose what we wish to experience. We give out direct vibrations whether we are conscious of them or not. What are we giving out? Let’s think about it now as we head into these powerful Uranus/ Pluto squares. Let’s take responsiblity for our actions, feelings, thoughts and decisions right now. We have two years of these squares that test our own personal waters.

This is a powerful time. This year is a powerful year. It is time for the human race to grow up and evolve and that is why we are being pushed, almost bombarded, by the Universe with these astrological configurations. To really ease our way through this keyhole, let’s really develope our sense of humor. Laugh at the folly ahead.  Attitude is everything and the attitude of gratitude is NOW.

21st Century Spirituality

(This is the extended version of an article I wrote for Kosmos online journal.)

 

The energy generating 21st Century Spirituality is each individual taking responsibility for their own personal growth and evolution.

The days of following gurus of any kind are over.  The days of letting someone else, no matter their world stature, dictate who we are, what we want and how we should be, are over.  We as a global village have so much information at our fingertips that we each can make our own deep, personal discernments about what is right for us.  Taking responsibility for selecting healthy foods to eat, healthy positive relationships of all kinds and creative inspiring work that makes a difference and is personally rewarding are all offshoots of taking care of ourselves and putting our own well being first. This basic task of taking responsibility for our own happiness right now, instead of waiting for someone or something to do it for us, is a huge key to 21st Century Spirituality.

We are seeing a radical departure from huge organized religions headed by a few questionable individuals impersonably shepherding large congregations as if one size fits all.  21st Century Spirituality leans toward self-empowered, self-realized, pro-active smaller groups of like-minded people who share ideas, support and inspire each other in positive, healthy ways to contribute to their communities.

Who are the teachers of this 21st Century Spirituality then?  Anyone carrying the energy of unconditional love is a teacher now just by showing up and radiating this very misunderstood energy. Why has it been misunderstoood? Unconditional love has no agenda.   Throughout time, the people who have consistantly embodied this energy, are mothers. More women will take center stage and assume important roles in the world.

Sharing and supporting each other is 21st Century Spirituality. We see this online in all positive aspects of social networks. Nobel prize winners and great minds of our time are offering free online classes and degrees so everyone in our world can be educated, prosper, contribute and be abundant.

Authenticity is the catchword for 21st Century Spirituality. Be yourself. Find out who you are, then be it fully. No excuses.

Inclusiveness is 21st Century Spirituality.  Everyone, no matter what race, sex, color, weight, age, or financial status can be, do, or go anywhere they please now because acceptance is on the rise.

Being grateful is 21st Century Spirituality. Gratitude practices are becoming the norm.

Co-creating is 21st Century Spirituality.  For those of us who have peeled our onions and found our inner voice, leading with our intuition instead of pushing to make things happen, becomes a way of life now. We draw others who are also doing the same thing, form groups to hone and ground our growing intuition with the help of Spirit. The fifth element becomes heightened in our lives when we choose right relationship to ourselves, others, the planet and all beings. Right livelihood appears naturally at this point. Everything is being re-jiggered  in all areas of life all over the world so we can connect more powerfully to the fifth element- SPIRIT!

We human beings are expanding exponentially and at such a rapid rate that worlds are splitting and colliding before our eyes. This is just the beginning. The wise way is to slow down on the inside to stay grounded as the pace picks up around us.

The energy of Unconditional Love embodies 21st Century Spirituality. There are no words to define it. We will KNOW it, when we FEEL it.
