Loving Our Shadows

Loving Our Shadows

The past few months have certainly been quite intense! Been missing y’all and am finally in a space where I can create. This space is both in my surroundings and in myself. It’s taken a good while to get my bearings after moving in, while juggling duties of family life (not quite empty nest, but very, very soon), self healing, giving massages and studying healing modalities like trigger point therapy, acupressure, Thai yoga bodywork, aromatherapy, meditation, crystals and herbs.

Being broken so long ago and limping through life at times and other times running marathons and 100 yard dashes has given me such an intimate relationship with Coyote. The Trickster often guides the way, the way of the fool who happily steps off the precipice into the void. Luckily, my angels always surround me and protect me regardless of what I am going through. And this body gets stronger. Hatha yoga and postural mindfulness and strengthening exercises help a lot, as do my crystal healing baths.

Jupiter in Scorpio til November and the recent several weeks of Mars also in Scorpio brought ample opportunity for shadow work, and it is not all pleasant. But if we deny our shadows, they loom larger and more ominous, and if we turn away from our own shadows in fear we create blocks which require Love to dissolve. That’s what surrendering is all about.

Through the cold month of January and my second anniversary at WordPress, I have had to cocoon myself yet again, for sometimes my wings get torn due to the Trickster laughing in and out of my life. And of course we will call experiences to us until we get the lesson.

I know this and am working on releasing old patterns which no longer serve me, and yet find more work to do yet again.

Being in the eclipse corridor, a sense of timelessness accompanies the thick, juicy energies accompanying our literal transformation as the photon belt has arrived and we are also leaving the cosmic debris of an area in space where a galaxy died, and we have been traveling through this dust and darkness for thousands of years.

But now, as predicted in holy books and prophecies around the world, we come to the end of the Kali Yuga age, the end of the Age of Pisces, and the beginning of the Age of Aquarius.

These are the times of the Rainbow Warriors. Each of us with open hearts are part of the Rainbow Bridge connecting Heaven and Earth.

The time is now, and several more months to explore our shadows.

Also, Uranus is in fiery Aries still, and will be moving into Taurus, which is ruled by Venus, in May, and this is important because Uranus is the planet of electricity and change.

May your Monday be blessed wherever you are on this planet. And remember we are all connected.

A’ho Mitakuye Oyasin. Blessed be. Om Shanti.

The Hall of New Beginnings

The Hall of New Beginnings

Floating between
lifetimes
in the hall of
New Beginnings

this world between worlds

where infinite possibilities

stretch out
across
the imaginary
boundaries
of Time.

This is No-Time
and No-Space,
this Longer Now,
this No-Thing-Ness

place where I am free,

I am loved and loving,
this cloak of pain and scars
softly fading,
my rainbow cloak
brightly glowing,
for I herald from the stars.

Planted in this world of Light
and Shadow to help new beginnings grow.

My children are my garden,
they are the quivering arrows
of life shot from my bow.
They are grown into saplings now,
their roots digging deeper into this earth,
their branches spreading far and wide,
they too are planting gardens,
they too are in this Hall of New Beginnings.
They too herald from the stars.

Healing now,
loving ourselves,
loving each other
Unconditionally,
loving this world and
all her inhabitants
Unconditionally,
we are breathing
and loving the New Earth
into being.

Om Shanti.

Blessed be.

A’ho Mitakuye Oyasin.

The Journey Inwards

The Journey Inwards

Every day brings new opportunities for fresh starts. No matter who you are or what your challenges may be, there is a reason for you to be here. You are a miracle. And it’s by noticing the every day miracles around you which increases the Love in the Universe. Love is letting go of fear, our greatest obstacle and from which the most challenging obstacles of darker emotions and feelings arise.

The journey inwards is not an easy one. Many saints have written about the dark night of the soul, or the battle with the dragon. Teachers can only take us to the doorway of the inner labyrinth, but finding the center of the maze and taming our own inner dragon is a solo journey. The quest which must be completed in order to properly use the Force, which we are each given.

Love your self unconditionally, celebrate your uniqueness in this great mosaic tapestry of life. When your journey gets tough and there are not like minded souls around you, seek comfort in Nature. Let Her warm arms comfort you with Her beauty, Her strength and resilience, Her oceans, streams and rivers, Her trees, plants and flowers, her living creatures great and small. See the sparkle in the eyes of the children, and soon you will see that same sparkle in your own eyes, and in the eyes of those around you.

Never let the Light go out in your eyes. Keep shining, my friends, keep shining.

No More Sides

No More Sides

Pick a card,
choose a side,
but don’t ever
look inside,
it’s so much better
to duck and hide
from each other.

Be afraid, be so afraid
of every difference
that you see,
look through the lens
only partially,
locally,
not globally.

Ahh but don’t you
see, that inside
we are always free,
and when we look inside
we see,
the true face of
humanity.

It’s not our differences
that matter,
but all the ways
we are the same,
one family we be,
part of Gaia’s giving tree,
we can be free.

Embracing Oneness as our path,
diversity delights us at last,
And hand in hand we stand up
collectively.

We stand up for each other,
for our planet, She is our mother,
And what we do to her,
we do to each other.

And what we do to one another,
we do to ourselves,
In La’kesh,
we are connected,
I am another you.
And I wish always
the best for you.

Deep breaths now,
the time has come to band together,
to hold our candles in the rain,
as the world has gone insane,
fighting wars,
so much pain,
but in the center there is calm,
And that calm is where we be,
powerfully connected,
And Love will set us free!

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.

Following my morning meditation with my balcony garden and morning glories, I had a conversation on FB about falling in love with God. I thought of Rumi, who frequently referred to God as the Lover.

I have a wonderful book called Love Poems To God with poetry by Rumi,, Rabia, Mira, Hafiz, Kabir, St. Catherine of Siena, St. Theresa of Avila, Meister Eckhart And St. Francis I’d Assisi. Which reminded me of one of my all time favorite movies which my parents took me to the drive in to see back in the Seventies.

And here it is, in case you haven’t seen it and may be interested. Franco Zeffirelli is the director, and his version of Romeo and Juliet is another of my all time favorite movies.

And also here is a picture of my morning glories. And while being so busy I will post the Kaypacha summary every other week, to correspond with new moons and full moons and of course eclipses and equinoxes and wand solstices.

Anyway, we have entered the Lion’s Gate until August 8, incoming energies are intense and Venus in Cancer opposite the Galactic Center is affecting us all. Keep your seatbelts fastened, take a day off from the news, or at least most of the day, connect with Nature, drink lots of water get some kind of exercise, and look for the truth within, for all the answers are within. As without so within. And vice versa.

A mantra I enjoy and learned from Rainbow people goes like this, “I will be gentle with myself, I will take care of myself. I am a Child of the Universe. Being born every moment.”

We are birthing ourselves into a higher expression, a higher frequency than we ever have before. Those resisting these incoming energies demonstrate great confusion and other signs of mental illness as they wish to continue a path of destruction and war. But we are many, and we are one human family, and we know we must take care of ourselves, each other and our planet. It’s not our differences that matter. It’s the many ways we are alike.

Namaste, my friends. A’ho Mitakuye Oyasin. Ubuntu.

We are a global family.

Colors Of My Heart

Colors Of My Heart

I live in the rainbow colors
of my heart.

I worship the sun and the moon
and all that is sacred,
whichever you choose to
call that which is Divine.

I honor both the Divine Feminine
And the Divine Masculine,
And see the synchronicity
of both emerging,
but after so many
millennia
with the scales tipped
too far, too far
from justice, the
scales must swing
in a motherly direction
before balance
can be restored.

These are the days of
the goddess rising.
Hecate, Kali, Persephone,
Demeter.

Ishtar, Innana, Nut. Freyja.
Kuan Yin, Athena, Diana,
Aphrodite, Hera, Pele.

See them dancing and blessing
the waters with love and prayer
in sacred sites everywhere.

She is rising in me and
she is rising in you.
