Kaypacha’s Astrology For The Soul, August 16, 2017


I am finally back again – with my particular chart, Sun in Cancer with Leo cusp influence, Pisces Moon and Aries rising, just for starters, the current configurations of the stars have been creating all sorts of unexpected circumstances which have taken up quite a bit of time. And wow, that time has flown! Not to mention that the world has gone even more crazy, so let’s all remember to breathe and always keep our seatbelts fastened.

This week Kaypacha talks at us from a beautiful area in Italy, giving us beautiful advice for how to handle this transformative energy that we will be experiencing with this total solar eclipse. He said it had just been raining and might rain again any moment – and at that moment it was raining here in Oklahoma, which it has been doing every night lately. So nice.

The moon was in Gemini on Wednesday, giving lots of ideas to us all, lots of changes going on all around, then we moved on into Cancer Thursday and Friday, and boy did I have a rough time with those two days! Usually I am quite at home with the Moon in Cancer, but the Sun in Leo conjunct Mars with Venus in Cancer and the Moon in opposition to Pluto with Uranus in Aries, Saturn in Sagittarius, Mercury retrograde in Virgo, it has actually flattened me, but the mermaid energy has revived me today. Just need to be submerged in water for half an hour with candles and soft music and a couple of my favorite crystals.

My apologies for digressing so much, so excited about the eclipse tomorrow. Remember to use protection! And it will be at 1:05 p.m. in Oklahoma, there are links online which will show what time it will be wherever you are, if you didn’t already check, which of course you most likely have.

When the Moon was in Cancer, she and Venus were both square Jupiter, and Sunday the North Node of the Moon will be conjunct the Sun for the next week or so. And the Moon is moving into Leo just in time for the New Moon and Total Solar Eclipse in Leo tomorrow. This will be a balsamic conjunction with Mars 1st at 28 degrees and 53 minutes of Leo trine Uranus in Aries. Saturn in Sagittarius will be conjunct Black Moon Lilith trine Sun on Tuesday.

(Kaypacha always gives much more information. I am merely doing typing up a summary for posterity sake and so I can look back over these in the future).

“I am thou, thee is me, thee is thou, thou is me. Like the Mayan saying, In La’kesh, a la’kin.”

There is madness within and around us. These are wild times. And the deal is that this isn’t just an eclipse, but Mars conjunct the Sun double intensifies it, along with the North Node of the Moon and the New Moon

The Sabian symbol for the total solar eclipse. Definitely the mermaid energy of Cancer definitely did bring us some rain. Here we have a mermaid emerging from the ocean, preparing to be reborn in human form. This goes back to Lemuria, before Atlantis, when our bodies were not so dense and physical, and there was more fluidity and more unity consciousness, recognizing the consciousness in the trees, and the rocks and the stars. This was before the patriarchy, we had a time of knowing who we were and how connected we are to the whole universe. Time to surrender to mermaid consciousness.

Also Black Moon Lilith is conjunct Saturn in Sagittarius, and apparently a whole article could be written about that aspect as well, for she is the shadow and conjunct Saturn in Sag it gives us the feeling of being ashamed of how much we know, the truth that is within us. Saturn wants to lock down and add dogma to every religion, but Black Moon Lilith is the wildish side of things, in touch with Nature. Her truth is ever expanding. We will be having intense feelings, complex relationship issues and experiences, The intensity isn’t over yet.

Newtonian physics is true. We are being transformed by a powerful divine feminine energy. We are changing. Sagittarius is mutable, changeable. Uranus in Aries (retrograde) has to do with new futuristic ideas, independence, freedom, we are hitting our limits and need to come to some agreements about living together in a sustainable way.

(and the day before watching this, I read an article about mermaids focusing on some of the same points – cosmic synchronicity).

And now we are having a time of remembering. Remembering who we were and reclaiming our power.

The sabian symbol for Uranus in Aries is the music of the sphere,

Pluto is going into Aquarius in October and it hasn’t been there for 230 years, and Aquarius is the 11th sign, the sign of the scientist, the genius, the computer geek, the extraterrestrial. And the Moon grabs that Aquarian energy during the lunar eclipse (full moon in Aquarius August 7, penumbral eclipse), and has been bringing up old emotional garbage and she’s going to block the sun. We have been coming and going. It’s like – what the bleep? LOL.

Our selfish habits, stuck patterns, emotional insecurities, wanting to hold onto somebody, and this moment when the moon covers the sun, it’s time to rid ourselves of old ways of seeking security as taught in childhood and past lives and really come into a new way of being expressive.

Mars is a big player right now, and has a moon called Phobos – same word root as phobia – meaning fear. Mars is the warrior, being conjunct the sun during eclipse has us needing to face our fears and also be ready to fly by the seats of our pants.

Leo is like a flower. It’s like going from bud to flower, then it becomes fruit, then it dies when Scorpio comes around.

We may push people away because we need a lot of space during this flowering process. But then we must remember were are a beam of Light. There is a trail of ascended masters behind us, offering us support and encouragement. We just need to fill out the paper work and go to the new country – (the new world of 5D consciousness).

Kaypacha says all this and so much more. And I am finally doing better. Yoga and physical therapy are helping. Lots of change. My youngest son just left for college last week. So proud of him for winning a football scholarship.

This week’s mantra: When I really look at it, all of life is a chance, and I refuse to face my fear, I will never learn to dance. Action in the face of fear.
May you take a chance and learn to dance.

Namaste. Aloha. So. Much. Love.

Rainbow Blessings. A’ho Mitakuye Oyasin.

Kaypacha’s Astrology For The Soul, July 19, 2017


This week Kaypacha says there is so much going on, he has to show us using his solar system program. The moon is in Gemini, moving into Cancer tomorrow, then into Leo on Sunday when we have the New Moon at 0 degrees and 44 minutes in Leo. Then we have a Sun/Moon/Mars conjunction, a very powerful and joyful New Moon. The Sun squares Uranus on the cusp at 28 degrees to 28 degrees. Mercury is coming up to Leo soon, conjunct with the North Node of the Moon, which will be in Leo for the next year and a half.

Venus is in opposition to Saturn, which will be exact on Monday, and the Sun will be exactly conjunct Mars next Wednesday.

Earth, Mars, Jupiter and Uranus are in a big T-square. Also, Black Moon Lilith is in alignment in Saturn and also in opposition to Venus, while Chiron is in alignment with Neptune in Pisces.

Venus in opposition has to do with seeds being sewn, babies being born, relationships being formed.

Jupiter in Libra and Saturn in Sagittarius have been there since last October, and Tom asks us these questions about our lives at that time. Where were you? What decisions did you make about finances, relationships, love? When these aspects came into place, it inspired many of us to question our basic values – and these aspects conjunct the Great Attractor, the biggest thing in the Universe which swallows galaxies and draws all of us inward, wind blowing off everything that’s not you, as you get drawn back into Source, the ultimate Sagittarian quest – the Holy Grail.

Venus has gone around 180 degrees now, hitting Lilith first – the ultimate search for meaning that goes beyond right or wrong. It is the quest itself. Venus in Gemini stimulates our curiousity, leads us to the Great Attractor, and to finding deeper connection and understanding and ability to own our truth, what it means to be human, to be alive, to love, to be male, female, on this planet at this time.

The thing is, we can make mistakes, we can cause others pain, we can be hurt by others, but there is something beyond this. My soul is calling me. Sun square Uranus indicates who I want and need in my life and who I don’t. Coming into Saturn has to do with time, commitment, boundaries. We are each stepping into our own King or Queen. This is when we learn when it’s right to say no and when it’s right to say yes. The challenge is this: I want to move into relationship, but I don’t want to lose myself. The other may wish to control me, or attempt to influence me to share their values.

I need to evaluate here – do we have the same values, the same truths, the same quests?

The challenge is to be in relationship without losing my core truth or being unable to speak my truth, or just going along with it because of not knowing what else to do. (I know how this can be).

The gift of New Moon in Leo is that we can all now be our authentic original selves, speaking our own truth. In square with Uranus mixes it all up. Uranus is the Great Mixer. What individual things existed before? After Uranus arrives, they are pulverized and born again. The other gift is knowing this: I am real, I am authentic, and I’d love to be loved. So we will put ourselves out there, paint our paintings, write our poetry, get up behind a microphone and record, send the world our message.

Kaypacha also talks a bit about the Great American Eclipse on August 21 – the climax of the eclipse season. As always, he is so worth taking the time to watch.

Be in the Now and not attached to what seems to be the truth – it’s all part of the quest. The Sun and Moon emerging out of Cancer – the Mother – is like all of us being born again. And now we have wings.

This week’s mantra: Like a butterfly emerging out of the cocoon, I have been transformed inside. All parts of myself now aligned in truth, I have nothing left to hide.

Yesterday, July 19, I turned 55. And I just discovered that the giant coronal hole in the sun which ejected solar winds towards the earth from July 14-17 hits Oklahoma directly – one of the few places in Oklahoma where this happens. No wonder things have been so curious around here. And busy.

Happy New Moon in Leo!!!!

Kaypacha: Namaste. Aloha. So. Much. Love.

Kamea: Rainbow Blessings of Love and Light. I love you all so much.

Kaypacha’s Astrology For The Soul, July 06, 2017

Kaypacha’s Astrology For The Soul, July 06, 2017


There has been so much going on that one day’s worth of activities are taking 2-3 days, but healing is happening! This week Kaypacha is back home in Costa Rica, and gives us sound advice for the upcoming incredibly intense Thunder Moon, our Full Moon in Capricorn on July 09. My own Mercury is in Cancer and my Pluto is in Capricorn, so I am feeling these energies and they are invigorating me, but my tendency is to become too excited when doing big projects, and then I overdo. Lifelong dance with Trickster.

Anyway, the Moon was in Sagittarius on Wednesday when the report was filmed, but moved on into Capricorn today. So the Moon will be conjunct Pluto in Capricorn opposing the Sun, Mercury and Mars all hanging out in sensitive Cancer.

Mars at 21, 22, 23 degrees Cancer is in a Yod with Saturn and the South Node of the Moon in Aquarius. Saturn is in Sagittarius, South Node of the Moon is in Aquarius, so we have a Sagitarrius-Aquarius sextile, and Mars is coming up to square it. Mars in Cancer is lazy – we want to take baths, pamper ourselves. Cancer is all about the home, the inner child. July is a great month for baking, barbecues, inviting friends over for celebrations – and then there is the clean up, which we may not feel like doing. (I have OCD, so, I get the clean up done, but we have had a lovely family celebration on the 4th).

Wednesday the Sun was square Jupiter in Libra – something which is bringing more, more, more and more. There’s a lot going on with all of us! We’re awakening, building the new world. Kaypacha offers the great advice to fine tune our gifts, develop our businesses, set our price, and detach ourselves from the system. Ecocommunities with sustainable permaculture – off the grid – and we create the new world, we creatively make a change. Of course, we have to pay the rent, have food, have transportation, upgrade the computer – there are always steps to moving forward. It can be a bit demanding, and that’s where we come to the defunct system.

It’s time to change the system. Looking at the bigger overall pictures – the Yod with Mars has to do with negative aspects or elements of society, which we need to look at, see, and address, and Saturn in Sagittarius has a new plan so that we don’t make the mistakes of our forefathers who have not met the needs of humanity.

Just like the Federal Reserve. It is an entity all of its own – yet as soon as it prints money, the government becomes more in debt. And the loans provide other loans, on and on, increasing the debt all the time. The movie Zeitgeist and its addendum are both excellent sources of information about the system and how messed up it is.

The Rothschilds, Koch brothers, and the other top elite are the ones who own a majority of the planet,and its time to stop feeding into their system.

He talks about visiting his sister up in Vancouver, who practices permaculture and has fresh reaspberries and a great vegetable garden and barely has to go shopping at all, and he goes back to Costa Rica and lives in a community that practices permaculture.

All in all, we want to feel secure, and these are not secure times. So it’s so important remain centered – the Full Moon in Capricorn has a lot to do with the crazy things going on in government. There is a lot of greed and self interest, yet those of os awakening know that we have to plant the seeds. We can’t just pretend everything is going to be okay if we just put our rose colored glasses and go from festival to festival, doing our happy dancing – we have to do the work together and create the new world community by community.

The intensity of the energy is only going to increase until the great solar eclipse in Leo in August, which is going to just be beyond comprehension.

The Full Moon in Capricon is telling us to get our butts out there – the soul groups – Pluto in Capricorn – 57 – 72 and Pluto in Scorpio 84-96.

The broken system makes people sick. They are overworked and drained, and seek alcohol drugs and other things to numb themselves. Those born in Pluto in Capricorn are a whole generation of healers (I am one too), and the Pluto in Scorpio are the Shamans and the therapists, here to help people resurrect themselves. These soul groups will be helping bringing in the Age of the Aquarius by focusing in on our gifts – dance, yoga, massage, aromatherapy, crystal therapy, whatever it is that you’re good at, and when we do this we will pull people out of their cubicles. And join the new communities, planting gardens, healing ourselves and sharing our gifts with each other.

He also brings up the awesome movie Dr. Strange, which explores parallel universes – and it is such a great analogy to what’s going on in this world – we can open up people to alternative view points and ways of looking at the world, alternative lifestyles, and show the people who are dying from living by the rules of the sick sick system will see this healing and will begin creating too. We can create positive ripples, folks (He is so excited and speaks quickly and says way much more than this and I also just add a little bit here and there because this excites me a lot), and as we pull away from the system, the system will just collapse all by itself. So let’s get creative, move into roles of leadership and healing and we don’t have to worry about violence and rebellion.

This week’s mantra: It’s time to change the system, come up with a whole new plan, that starts with me being able to see into the future of man.

Self development. Opening the awakening. Developing the creative potential. Offering it to our brothers. attracting it to our brothers and sisters away from the death defying throes of the system – some day – these seeds are going to grow into the Golden Garden of man – just like Joni Mitchell sang and Crosby, Stills and Nash sang, “got to get us back to the Garden.”

This was one of the best ever. He just gets better and better at explaining what’s going on in the stars (and I am learning more about it by watching and it and also by typing these summaries).

Kaypacha’s farewell: Namaste. Aloha. So. Much. Love.

Kami’s farewell: A’ho Mitakuye Oyasin. Love you all so much.

Golden Keys in Children’s Literature

Golden Keys in Children’s Literature

Pondering on the dream I had almost two years ago, about all the masters, saints, avatars, wise ones, earth angels and boddhisatvas were gathered on a high flat mountain plateau like the one in Taos. The air itself was golden and a loud voice declared, “Ho, Dragon Slayers. The time has come to cease slaying the Dragon. You are all now to be Dragon Tamers. And all the keys will be found in the ancient texts, myths, holy books,songs and stories of all times.

For we are the writers of this epic human story, and it is huge. The whole Universe has been joyously awaiting our ascension into the Golden Age.

Even children’s books and fairy tales hold the keys. The Chronicles of Narnia give keys to dealing with planetary transformation, and also sacrifice, overcoming the deep dark secrets of magic through innocence and surrender, only to achieve resurrection, overturning the ancient dark secrets with the older magic of LOVE. Aslan, for C.S. Lewis, represents Jesus Christ. But also God, the creator of Narnia, and also providing the doorway into the new world when corruption brings Narnia to its demise. And the paradise he takes Lucy, Edmund, Peter and Susan is far more real and beautiful than either Narnia or Earth could ever be. “Farther up and further in!” Asian joyously sings as he leads his beloved children to their true home. Of course all their loved ones are there, for they have crossed over the rainbow bridge through a dirty stable door. Things are not always as they seem. The false prophet, an ape disguised as Aslan, is the one who brought war and corruption across the land. Perhaps Lewis was also prophetic, for there certainly are familiar themes in American politics (and other countries as well) going on today.

The two other books coming to my mind currently, containing golden keys to taming the Dragon are Heidi and The Secret Garden. Both stories emphasize the healing power of Nature. Both Heidi and Mary Collins from The Secret Garden lose their mothers at an early age. Mary also loses her father. Both are sent to live with relatives. Both have issues at first with their new homes, but after spending time out in Nature, each with a friend who guides them (Peter the goat herd in Heidi, and Dickon, the animal and nature loving brother of Martha, Mary’s nurse maid in The Secret Garden).

And they both have cousins who are crippled. Well to do children who are given everything their doctors and nurses and busy, mostly absent fathers can think of, except fresh air, sunshine and nature. Both are motherless as well. In both stories the heroines undergo deep personal transformation and healing, trials and tribulations, and after Nature teaches them her secrets, they share this golden key with their crippled cousins. Mary Collins’ cousin is Colin, Heidi’s cousin is Clara.

It is upon taking these children outside, Colin to the Secret Garden, and Clara to the Swiss Alps where Heidi returns to live with her beloved and troubled grandfather, that they both achieve true healing, within and without, and learn to walk again. And while Heidi and Mary are the facilitators and Nature the golden key, the other golden key is within each of them and each of us.

Which leads me to a scene in The Secret Garden where Mary and Colin are talking about the Universe. And Colin tells her about a holy man, one so holy that if one should be blessed to look into his mouth, one would see the whole universe. Mary argues with him about this idea, declaring it illogical, and Colin says it doesn’t have to make sense.

I feel Frances Hodges Burnett and Johanna Spyri were pointing out the golden keys to healing in these magical tales, just as Lewis was in the Narnia tales, for meditation can take us to other realms within.

As above, so below. As without, so within.

It is clearly evident this Mars and Mercury conjunct in Cancer along with the Sun opposing Pluto in Capricorn is causing some extreme behavior (and bizarre, and horrific) on the global scene, but at the same time people are praying, people are healing, people are gathering together and rising up for human rights and for our only planet.

There’s been times when I fell into despair and couldn’t get out of bed much due to many challenging health issues and depression (listing them anymore is claiming them and am done with that as best as possible). And then when I began spending more time outside, doing yoga, planting herbs for my cooking, coloring mandalas, meditating and going to my own inner sun did I begin to truly heal on a deep cellular level.

And we all are healing. We are each little holograms of the Universe, and we must be like hollow bones and keep our vessels pure.

Namaste, my friends. Blessed be.

Kaypacha’s Astrology for the Soul, June 28, 2017

Kaypacha’s Astrology for the Soul, June 28, 2017

Now it’s already July 01, and just getting around to the important aspects of this week. Been super busy! Yoga four times so far this week, a great physical therapy session, doctor visit which went well (my heart is strong), and four hot stone massages, three days with my Loralai and the sudden manifestation of a car. I was talking about getting one soon over a year ago, and at this point I had pretty much surrendered the idea, had written down the stages I needed to go through first, and suddenly my daughter was given a decent SUV and so she gave me her car. And my son JJ went out and bought himself a car yesterday. He’s a Virgo. Usually earth signs are very good at managing their money. I digress.

This week Kaypacha talks at us from a meadow overlooking a bay, but I am not sure of the location. It’s beautiful, though, as is the report.

Wednesday the Moon was still in Virgo, but she moved on into Libra yesterday, the beautiful energy of which was palpable last night. Just love Oklahoma summer night thunderstorms! Especially when just a couple friends visit. In Libra the Moon is influenced by Venus, creating potential romantic encounters. Mercury and Mars are conjunct all weekend, along with the Sun, which are all trine Pisces in Neptune, opposite Pluto in Capricorn, squaring it off. The Moon is conjunct Jupiter in Libra, bringing the feminine energies alive on this planet. Saturn is still in Sagittarius and Uranus is in Aries, and although Venus is still in Taurus, she is moving on into Gemini on Tuesday, creating a lift in the energies.

When the Moon reaches 9 degrees and 24 minutes of Libra, we will be in our first quarter square. I frequently feel inspired to light candles and connect with Nature in any way possible for the auspicious stages of the Moon (like sitting outside on my balcony next to my growing garden, but further out and away from civilization is preferable). Monday, when she is in Scorpio, she is going to oppose Uranus.

Also on Monday, she will trine the Sun, trine Neptune and sextile Pluto, which will be amazing. All in all, we will be having a Grand Cross with all the aspects going on.

The Cancer – Capricorn opposition creates a longing for connection, for nurturing, for touch. There will be a desire to connect with the other, friends, family, lovers, the community. We need each other for support, love, nurturing, procreation, and protection. At the same time Mars in Cancer will tend to lead us toward beautiful, sexual, amazing lovemaking connections. This is the weekend for it while Venus still basks in Taurus, one of the two signs she rules (Libra is the other, so hence a gob ton of Venusian energy to compliment three signs in Cancer and one in Pisces. Once Venus moves into Gemini, Pluto in Capricorn will be the only earth sign for a wee bit.

This is a weekend to fall in love, or fall back in love. Mars in Cancer opposite Pluto in Capricorn provides a strong magnetic pull, while Venus in Taurus is all about being in our bodies, honoring them, and loving ourselves first and foremost, but that’s what leads to love with another. When we are in love with life, with ourselves, and with the Universe, we radiate and attract love. It just happens.

Kaypacha then mentions one of Michael Moore’s films which I happened to watch a couple months ago, “Where Are We Going To Invade Next?” Moore goes to many different countries and asks important qualities about various topics like paid vacation time, mental health care, school lunches, shorter school days and work days, and brings up the powerful women of Iceland, who had a peaceful revolution and jailed their corrupt bankers. These women ask Moore how do the people in the United States sleep at night, where we are in a patriarchy on steroids and individualism has gone overboard. How can we be at peace with veterans and others living on the streets and the many other injustices going on which have gone rather amuck to a whole new extreme lately. We can learn a lot from Iceland!

The feminine focuses on community, as does the Age of Aquarius, and the South Node of the Moon in Aquarius will also call us to stand up for all our communities. But many have to wake up first.

He says all this and much much more, perhaps now that it’s the weekend you will have time to watch it, but my apology for the delay, time has been just whizzing on by. The shadow aspect of Cancer is getting all wrapped up in ourselves and needing attention, needing to be held, seeking approval, and being perhaps unconscious. The lighter side is the desire to nurture, care for the home and the children, and to give love and friendship.

Mars and Mercury opposing Pluto can also get people into a space of wanting more, more money, more sex, more, more, more until we are addicted in a codependent fashion. So this is something to be mindful of and keep our boundaries clear and our chakras balanced and auras nice and glassy smooth, not sponges at all. Jupiter in Libra encourages us to listen to other people and pay attention to their needs as well.

This week’s mantra: I can be a bottomless pit, of longing and needing more until such a time as I realize I am filled with love to the core.

Because we are love! That is our essence.

Kaypacha’s Farewell: Namaste. Aloha. So. Much. Love.

Kamea’s Farewell: A’ho Mitakuye Oyasin, my friends. We are all related. I love you and I finally love me.

Kaypacha’s Astrology for the Soul, May 20, 2017


Okay, apparently I fell into a time warp wave and have absolutely no idea how so much of the month of May flew by with me missing out on writing up my summaries of Kaypacha’s weekly reports. Also, with the energy so intense, it has affected me on many levels, resulting in me being sent to lots of specialists, but I know I will be fine. The best part is I just started physical therapy for my neck and am learning so many great exercises which help quite a bit!

Also went through a break up, and that also has to do with the time warp wave hitting me so strongly. Anyway, enough about me, this week Tom talks at us from his home in Costa Rica, giving us a marvelous view of his backyard and wonderful banana trees which look like they are about to ripen.

Wednesday the Moon was in Aquarius, which is about friendships and social interactions. He says that nevertheless, it is time to MYOB (mind your own business), but Mars in Gemini is not so interested in that, either is Jupiter in Libra.

Moon moved on into Pisces late Thursday, where She will remain until Sunday, when She moves into fiery Aries until Tuesday, when She enters stable Taurus.

We have the Sun square the Moon, with the Moon right on the nodes. This is a very powerful square because it involves the nodal access. The Sun moves into Gemini today, Saturday, but just before that the Sun squared the Moon’s nodes and square the Moon. The square is 28 degrees – so the Sun will be at 28 degrees of Taurus, the Moon at 28 degrees of Aquarius on the south node with 28 degrees of Leo on the north node. As the Sun moves into Gemini today, Saturday, things are lightening up and picking up at the same time. We have fire and air going on here.

Saturn is in trine to Uranus this whole week. And Venus is opposite Jupiter, in conjunct to Neptune. Venus in Aries is powerful and independent, yet also wanting more connection. Jupiter had it’s first in conjunct to Neptune last September, but now it’s retrograde and has been happening again since Wednesday, quincunx. This will be going on until July 4. Kind of hitting us in the face, yet as an undercurrent, so it might not be so noticeable.

Jupiter quincunx Neptune opposite Venus is too much – all about excess. This is a Scorpio in conjunct, which is 150 degrees, not a Virgo in conjunct, which has a very different flavor. Neptune in conjunct makes us want to disappear, go up to a mountain, it’s a time when it’s hard to stay in our bodies, to stay grounded and rooted. The Sun in Taurus is two cobblers working at a bench, all about understanding what’s going on in 3D, hard working earth sign. Since it’s squaring the moon’s nodes – one of the nodes is a mermaid jumping out of the water, and the other is a chrysallis about to emerge as a butterfly.

This is a time of great paradox. We can go into the places of imagination and illusion which are so separate from reality it can be quite unsettling. This is a time where it’s really wanting to help humanity embrace, get used to, and become more comfortable with living in a paradox. It’s not either or, it’s everything else and more. The masculine aspect wants independence while the feminine aspect wants connection, both physical, emotional and spiritual.

We grow through intimacy, mirrors, other people. The questions which arise are should I stay or should I go? Well, we are both in and out. We can want everything and nothing at the same time. We live in a third dimensional world which is polarized, yet we are spiritual beings here to embrace, unite, integrate, and become more aware of how these polarities need each other to do the dance and not be swinging from one end of the spectrum, pointing fingers at the other, and then finding ourselves at the other.

This is a time when there is gravity and yet there is not gravity. Yes there is divine natural law and also the truth is subjective. For any belief you may have, we will discover that there is a paradoxical point of view which may pull us out of our comfort zones. The south node of the Moon in Aquarius will be going on for a year, which has us living in our heads, perhaps so caught up in our imaginations that we are pulled completely out of our knowledge base. It’s scary to come down from the position of being a bird perched on a branch. There are a lot of scary things on the ground.

This is a dangerous time and we know ourselves through danger. We know ourselves through danger and confrontation. This Scorpio quincunx is trying to control, control, control. Kaypacha says we are emerging out of 6,500 years of patriarchal conditioning where we have been taught that we are not enough, that we don’t know enough and we should be afraid and subservient, but despite that, it’s okay to make some major decisions right now. It’s important to trust our intuitions, to know that we are connected to the inner Divine. The enlightened guru says we must be willing to let go of everything in order to enter the gates of Nirvana. This can be rather scary. There are lots of things that can happen, yet it is also super exciting. He likens this to his skiing trips because he is not very good at skiing. This reminds me of the scene in Fantasia where the Magician’s Apprentice practices magic without enough knowledge and everything goes awry.

We can go through these waters trusting and know that control will come back – and we don’t always need to be in control. This is the place where we can dance, play, sing, and fill our hearts with joy and love. We don’t have to know all the answers or have all the money. This reminds me that surrender is seeking the peace which surpasses understanding. Releasing that need to know brings such abundant and lasting peace. And it is always there for us.

This week’s mantra: If I’m going to dance, I’ve got to move, not fight the flow, but feel the groove. Not get twisted by the paradox, but come out smiling like a jack in the box.

Namaste. Aloha. So. Much. Love.

Rainbow Blessings of Love and Light!

Retrograde Season

Retrograde Season

One year later and still here. Little Loralai was the bright point in our family Easter, a day with many happy moments but also some family conflict. So bright and sweet and innocent, her imagination still pure. She is such a blessing in our lives. This will work itself out, but my prayers are for healing for my grown kids, each of whom is so amazing, some growing through some terrific challenges, yet still keeping on as we all must do in these strange and transformational times. My yogi son and I went and prayed in a small Sacred Sanctuary chapel. Very peaceful and uplifting.

Just realized I am, right now, two days younger than my dear Mama was when she passed, exactly three months before she turned 55. And two weeks ago, while baking a potato in an oven recently cleaned with oven cleaner which I apparently hadn’t rinsed off well enough, my entire apartment filled with smoke and fumes, making me quite ill. Two days later, at follow up with primary care practitioner, they took blood from me which was returned with several serious looking abnormalities. The nurse called to tell me about them and told me if I needed anything, to just let them know.

The what I thought was very mild poisoning, despite how ill it made me, it clouded up my mind and I forgot to mention the incident to my PCP. Huge oversight.

After doing some research and realizing there could have been carbon monoxide in that smoke, which can cause a rise in carboxyhemoglobin, and after apparently hematocrit, red blood cells, and even calcium. After putting two and two together, I let my nurse know, and she had me go to the ER and get my blood drawn again.

The respiratory therapist who came to draw my arterial blood had severely shaking hands, a physical attribute I figured kinda strange considering her occupation. She jabbed me like five times to find artery, causing quite a lot of discomfort. For some reason, I didn’t even say anything, and she called me a trooper when she left.

So apparently my cholesterol is also elevated, even though I am not at all overweight, eat lots of salad, fish and other health foods. It can become elevated in the fifties due to heredity, so more work on quantum healing at the cellular, basic DNA level is needed. The blood work returned normal! So the fresh air and drinking lots of water worked!

So this Mercury retrograde season corresponding with Venus, Chiron, Saturn, and Jupiter has me doing lots of introspection. And having some time to devote to that. After spending my whole entire life on caring for others, still learning to care for self, and it can be a perplexing and challenging job, to say the least. Have to be my own loving yet firm parent, setting limits for myself, receiving wise and insightful wisdom from my yogi son and also my sweet daughter whom is still in the stone castle, but there are meadows and a river and trees, and she keeps getting promoted and is staying strong and now working in an office with the “Ma’ams” and “Sirs.” She will be finished in just three more months, my upcoming fortuitous birthday, a day where I will celebrate still being alive, and having victorious overcome repeating the same exact pattern of my Mama. We were so close we called each other psychic twins. We finished each other’s sentences. And talked on the phone every night.

Instead of isolating myself by living in a different city than my offspring, I have stayed in the same city for the last twenty three years. And I do have a bit of red wine now and then, usually one glass.

My recent visit to California is still on my mind and filling my heart with love, and next month my baby graduates from high school! I am so proud of him many heart almost bursts. We are very different in so many ways, but in other ways the exact same.

Looking back on memories, seeing how much has happened and how much we all have changed in the past year, is especially sweet today, feeling ever more grateful to be alive. And with good prana, breathing in that pink and gold energy, and breathing out that black smoke. The Christ is flame is nondenominational, so it doesn’t matter what faith or no faith you are. We are all being ushered into a time of Christ Consciousness. How appropriate for the planets to show us the way into ourselves. The theme of resurrection is found throughout history, and is what each of us goes through after the dark night of the soul.

A new and very kind friend has started a Saturday evening meditation for love and peace, sending a lot of this especially to world leaders, that’s 7:00 CST if you care to join. We must focus a lot on standing up for the light during these tumultuous times. That’s all that I will say about that, other than that I have been reading way too much news. And am now restricting the amount I digest daily, because as an empath, I feel certain current events quite viscerally, as I am sure so many of us do, for we are all becoming more and more empathic, which is a touch deeper than being empathetic. We are all amazing. Pray or send positive energy the most to those who seem to be the opposite of Love, for those people are the ones most afraid of all and are calling out for Love.

Many blessings of the stars and moon and wind and rain, rainbows, sunshine, butterflies, Easter eggs, and all of creation to you. Namaste.

A’ho Mitakuye Oyasin.
