We Are In the Lunar Week That Most Inspires Me

Fourth Quarter Moon, Sunday, May 22 at 2:43 PM to New Moon May 30, 7:30 AM, EDT

The last of the four phases of the Moon represent my homecoming, as the Fourth Quarter is the phase into which I was born. Because of this natal imprint, the Fourth Quarter Moon carries timing and personality imprints that guide my life.

Before sharing the personal homecoming information, let’s look at what this last Lunar week offers you.

What’s In It for You

The Dark of the Moon occurs every fourth week of the Lunar Cycle. The Balsamic Moon phase ends each Lunar cycle. This repeating timing occurs for the three full 24-hour periods before the New Moon. Because of our body/Moon connection, these three days are the most fertile times for intuitive knowing for all of us.

During these last three days, we are ending the Lunar Cycle. The energetics include movement from form to formlessness. We are ending one cycle to start fresh with the New Moon.

Notice how you feel during the last three days of this cycle, from Friday, May 27 through Sunday, May 29. Particularly, notice how you feel on this last day, Sunday. During this darkest dark of the Moon, resting feels exquisite and genuinely refreshing. A Void Moon on Sunday adds to the gravitational pull to go within.

You might notice a gravitational pull to slow down and go inward. You might feel you are wading through molasses. You might feel quiet or withdrawn from external engagement. If you feel anything like these descriptors, your body tells you the Moon is dark, and you can be, too. Soon after the New Moon arrives on Monday morning, 7:30 AM EDT, you are likely to notice an upsurge in energy and a willingness to go forward.

 Please heed the call if you feel the need to rest during the dark Moon. What you feel is bio cosmic alignment. Allowing rest and quiet time takes you inward where you can receive inspirational information that informs your overall plan.  

Back to the Personal Lunar Cycle

If you are a regular reader of these posts, you may recognize the term Personal Lunar Cycle, as I have written about this natural cycle before. This timing technique was “recovered” through a kinesthetic body experience in 1995. A workbook on how to change your relationship with Time is in the works, and detailed information on the Personal Lunar Cycle (PLC) is included in this workbook.

Before I share the why and the how of the positive impact of the Fourth Quarter phases for me, let’s look at your Moon phase. Use this handy link to determine the Moon phase in which you were born. Once you find it, drop that info in the comments section.

How the Lunar Homecoming Week Works

The Lunar phase into which we are born distills a natural rhythm specific to us. When the Sun/Moon phase angle – the geometrical relationship of the Sun and the Moon — returns each month to that same angle as at your birth, we have our Personal New Moon.

This cosmic event offers a reset button that brings benefits related to accountability and responsibility, self-love, self-care, and cosmic alignment. Quite the monthly gift box! The upcoming New Relationship with Time workbook covers this information in detail.

Aligning with this natural cycle of rest, death, and rebirth, in divine connection with our loving Moon, is one reason I love Fourth Quarter Moons. During this innate Moon phase, I rest naturally and deeply. With awareness of this timing, I plan, schedule, and align with a renewing, resourcing ritual that connects my body to Earth and the Cosmos. Tracking this pattern each Lunar month represents an anchoring to life, goals, plans, and energy levels via responsibility, accountability, and co-creating dreams into manifestation. 

I will keep you posted regarding when the New Relationship with Time workbook is available. For now, check out your Sun/Moon phase at birth and stay tuned to these posts to see what is up during each Lunar phase. Make a note of how your feel during your lunar phase.

Void of Course Moon Times this Week

Super short Void Moon times AGAIN this week. Eight and one-half hours on Sunday, May 22, six minutes on Tuesday, May 24, three hours Thursday to Friday, May 26-27, and less than four hours on Sunday, May 29. Depending on where you live – East or West US, or Europe, these times do not interfere with usual business hours. For other parts of the world, these times may impact your work schedule. Please check the time converter to confirm.

Even though the times are short, it still helps to stop trying to do business as usual during a Void Moon time because there is no form to contain the energy and the outcome is uncertain. During the last half of the Lunar Cycle, our work is about letting go, like the exhalation phase of the out-breath. It is a time to extend our arms out into the world with the beautiful creations and manifestations we have built up during the first half of the Lunar Cycles.

The upcoming New Relationship with Time workbook includes information on working with the Void Moons.

Void Moons: No form to contain the energy which feels free-floating and hard to focus. Heeding what your body wants during Void Moons — more internal focus, less external focus, and more stillness, quiet, and rest — are great ways to embody the Moon.

The Void Moon Times this week include:

Sunday, May 22, 3:19 AM to 11:50 AM EDT

Tuesday, May 24, 5:33 PM to 5:39 PM EDT

Thursday, May 26, 11:20 PM to Friday, May 27, 2:22 AM EDT

Sunday, May 29, 10:10 AM to 1: 23 PM EDT

Blessed Be. See you next week, at the New Moon.

October 6, 2021 New Moon

Glory, alleluia! The New Moon occurs at 7:05 AM EDT on Wednesday, October 6th, 2021.  This cosmic turning opens an entirely new cycle to create and love and grow into new consciousness. The focus of these communications is to drill down to the essence of feeling these cosmic turnings within the body as a visceral experience. Almost all the anchors in our lives are shifting. However, the cosmic alignment of Earth, Sun, and Moon remains as reliable anchors for planning, scheduling, and orienting toward fulfillment. New Moons represent new circumstances. There is a fresh start, even to long-term projects and relationships. The New Moon offers a reset button that is best accessed by tuning into your intuition. Questions you might ask are: What is the opportunity for me in this new lunar month? How do I begin? How do I reset in …… circumstance? The New Moon phase occurs between October 6th, 2021, 7:05 AM, EDT and lasts until October 12th, 11:25 PM EDT. The first week of the four-week lunar cycle is a creative time of application and focus. What we have generated within this first lunar week builds momentum toward the coming Full Moon. The shape of our Moon in the night sky reflects the natural development of our efforts in imagining, creating and building our vision. Allow your focus about one day into the new cycle to generate the form of your reset and then grab that budding energy. Go forward with animate creativity. Allow yourself this opportunity to align with nature and push the reset button. Void of Course Moon times in this first week include:  

Thursday, October 7th, 1:03 AM to 10:22 AM EDT.

Saturday, October 9th, 2:05 AM to 11:24 AM EDT

Monday, October 11th, 12:30 AM to 1:15 PM EDT

  As the name suggests, void of Course Moon times is fluid periods when it is hard to focus.  Internal activities like resting, dreaming, reflecting are favoured, and demanding applications are Sisyphean.

The Full Moon’s Secret

 processing-1737812_1280-saluting-full-moon

I have worked with the Full Moon in many ways, including dancing in wild celebration with a group, on a beach with a campfire; in meditative circles where we plundered in to feel the one root beneath all duality; in women’s talking and drumming circles, in a plaintive, lamenting wail for Sacred Union; immersed in cozy blankets, a steaming cup of herbal tea and books of poetry, Rumi, David Whyte, Mary Oliver.

My current, favorite way to work with our beloved, Sacred, Beaming Full Moon Light is to recognize its primal role as turning point between the in/out rhythm of life.  There is an in and out phase to everything, from our birth to our death, from our night to our day, from each in breath to each out breath.  These cycles, and so many more, have a cyclic span determined by the breadth of their circumference; some cycles are wider, and therefore, take longer, than other circles. The rhythmic pattern of a cycle, though, one half activity and the other half rest, is always the same.

The more complex our world gets; the more the basics help stabilize. That is why I go back, eons, perhaps, to remember, acknowledge and feel this simple in/out rhythm that our Moon models for us each month.  From New to Full Moon we are in active mode.  From Full to the end of the cycle, the Balsamic Moon, we are in rest mode.

lunar-eclipse-1192664_1280

Perhaps you are thinking, “Ridiculous, who could live like this?” Please consider that this is how our planet lives.  This is how our planet lives in relation to its place in the cosmos. This is how our Moon has modeled timing for us since the beginning of human life on earth. This is how our bodies live, whether we bring consciousness to this rhythm or not.

Yes, we are in a modern world that lives by 24/7 access to everything that we want.  However, our Moon mirrors this secret – the repeating pattern of activity and rest inherent in all the cycles, and cycles are the nature of life.

It is my operating premise that when we align with this core rhythm, as reflected by the fluid flow of Moon Light, we help ourselves root within the sustaining rhythm of life. To me, this is the ultimate in self-care, to feel and align our rhythmic body with the rhythmic body of cosmos, in sync and on time.

We have come a long way from consciously aligning with this core rhythm.  Some of us, perhaps you, and me, do live this alignment because not doing so throws us off kilter, spinning with no reliable tether.  The Moon and her fluid flow of Light does anchor us in the cyclic pattern of being, releasing and becoming.

What this means in practical terms is that you start recognizing, within your body, the surging build energy from New to Full Moon, and the dissipating, dissolving energy in the last half of the Moon’s cycle. We gather and build in the first half and reflect, process, disseminate and integrate in the last half.

Once we readmit this basic rhythm into sensate awareness, our body, our Divine Intelligence, our Intuition, our activated link with a living, loving Cosmic Field, guides us to next steps.

If you are already living this alignment, please let me know. If living like this sparks a compelling invitation within you, please let me know. It is time to call a Moon and Her Secrets circle together.

Intuition and Mercury Retrograde

staircase-600468_1280-spiral

It is that time again, when Mercury turns retrograde.  This is a natural cycle, however, not one we feel as a visceral experience, like we do with the Moon’s cycles. Mercury works with a mental, in contrast to physical, dynamic.

The natural element Mercury is reflective, conductive, liquid metal and has roots in alchemy. The planet Mercury has similar attributes. It is known as the Trickster, and governs communication, technology and things mechanical.

Mercury goes retrograde three times a year. While the actual retrograde motion time is three weeks, a full Mercury retrograde period, with pre-and post tracks, usually lasts eight weeks. During these times, there can be delays, miscommunications, confusions as well as opportunities to complete things that were started long ago. This is also a time when we might find ourselves connecting with people with whom we have lost touch.

For those in business, such as real estate, or sales of any kind, it is helpful to know the Mercury retrograde pattern. This is because there can be delays and snafus and it is helpful not to take seeming obstacles personally.  It is so much better when we have an understanding that things like delays might happen, due to a cosmic cycle.  This information is helpful for anyone trying to communicate a business deal or personal communication of importance.

Mercury retrograde has very bad press in the mainstream media.  It is a natural cycle, one that occurs frequently, and it has value for us. One value is that it slows us down.  Sometimes the delays gifted by Mercury retrograde take a lot of time and attention. I remember one technical computer glitch that took me a month to resolve.  Another example comes from a woman I knew who was waiting to hear about a work contract. She could not understand the delay. I shared Mercury Retrograde information with her and she reported back that as soon as that period of Mercury retrograde passed, she was awarded the contract.

flowers-1089349_1280-grey-embellish

Here are the dates: Mercury went into its shadow period on December 1, 2016 and is in the shadow stage until the planet goes retrograde on December 19, 2016.  Mercury stays retrograde for three weeks, until January 8, 2017. A post-retrograde period is in effect from January 9th until January 27, 2017 when the planet crosses its station. This means that Mercury is crossing the astrological degree where it turned retrograde December 19, 2016.

The shadow period, pre-the exact Mercury retrograde pivot, relates to the degree when Mercury turns direct, on January 8, 2017; this is like a precursor to the road traveled before the actual retrograde motion and once again while Mercury is retrograde. If this is heady, please just consider that Mercury retrograde offers a time to review actions and maybe, repeat steps.

Each Mercury retrograde period is unique unto itself because it travels a different section of the zodiac each Mercury retrograde period.  If someone has connection through her natal chart with the degrees of a specific Mercury retrograde period, the effects can be more intense.

The standard counsel during retrograde Mercury times are to complete unfinished projects, be open to old friends popping up, and perhaps, avoid making major purchases like buying a house or a car or a new computer.

If a Mercury retrograde cycle becomes intense for you, please relax into the experience and ask for any teaching that is being offered to surface from unconscious to consciousness.

Intuition can be a match for the quicksilver nature of Mercury. With intuition, you are operating from the field of seen and unseen energies, beyond mind.

More frequent check-ins with inner asking could possibly help circumvent Mercury retrograde challenges. Checking into the energy field within and around you, sensing all levels and dimensions before acting, or reacting, can only help. A daily prayer of intention for effortless ease might also help.

One part of my business is personalized support for living an intuitive life. If you would like assist on how to identify, work with and trust intuition, contact me.

Pivotal Mid Season Dates, November 5 – 7, 2016

galaxies-597905_1280-spiral-dance

It seems like yesterday that I wrote about shifting into Fall Season 2016. Now, we are at the midseason point, moving from Fall toward Winter. Mid season shifts are of value from a natural time, rhythmic living perspective. One of the value-added gifts is on the subtle energy plane. Our bodies are at a midseason point, turning from Fall, which is dry to cold, toward Winter, which is cold to wet. Those who work with Eastern medicine, like Acupuncture, might recognize this language.

Hippocrates, the Father of Modern Medicine developed this health theory, more simply known as body humours. Notice the breakdown of the word hum   ours!  Rudolph Steiner related the humours to temperament.  Our healthcare systems have deep roots within this knowledge.

Let’s consider how these humoural shifts affect us in 2016 when climate change produces 80 degree temperatures in November in mid-latitude regions of the Central United States. What are your thoughts on this?

Personally, I do not know. What is most true for me in this questioning is that we are still turning.  We are still in midseason shift, based on the movement of our home body within our home galaxy.

A value in noting seasonal shifts is that we are prepared. This awareness loosens us from stuck points, from resisting the unseen, often unfelt fluid motion of our lives.  Pagan traditions honor midseason with conscious awareness of shifting change and rituals of celebration, gratitude and the giving and requesting of blessings.

As we co-create our future within each present moment, collective recognition of the midseason shift is helpful. It lifts delusion of stasis and opens us to the experience of flow, and the direct experience of the release and renewal mechanisms of change.

earth-11015_1280-1

There is another pivotal moment during midseason turning that occurs one day before the exact midseason turning point. This other cyclic turning involves the midpoint between our Galactic Center and our Super Galactic Center in direct contact with the point where our Earth connects with our Sun.

The Galactic Astrologer, Philip Sedgwick, points out that this pivotal moment for us is a powerful time for making intentions. Our human hearts have direct access to the alignment of our Sun, the Galactic Center and the Super Galactic Center.  The world is ours. Take it. Observe that we are shifting in this midseason and that there is a direct connection in this sacred time for linking our deepest, purest heart’s desire with a listening cosmos.

The most potent days for meditating, requesting, visioning, intentioning, for consciously being with this potent mid season cosmic alignment are the 5th through the 7th of November 2016.

Blessed be,

Power Dates

Intuition leads the cover story of the August 2011 issue of Oprah magazine. While this feature is chockful of intuitive techniques, one technique not mentioned is alignment with natural cycles.

 

The core of my work with intuition is alignment with natural cycles. We are nature beings and the cycles of nature synchronize with the cycles of our bodies and inner life. Imagine the benefits when we acknowledge and align with natural cycles! The link between inner and outer gets clearer and intuition gets stronger, as does and a sense of safety in connecection with Life.

 

Coming up are three pivotal sets of dates that provide powerful openings for synchronizing alignment with the natural world. The first of these dates is Monday, July 25, 2011.

 

In the Mayan Calendar, this is the “Day Out of Time.” It is like a free day, a pivotal, potent day that occurs between the end of one Mayan Calendar year and the next. In all cyclical systems, there is a gap, a gasp of stillness, when one cycle ends and the next begins.

 

In my experience over decades working with natural cycles, this gap of stillness has the potential to take us out of the experience of duality and into the experience of unity, oneness. It might be momentary, a split second, however, it is a visceral experience. This melting of duality, the sense of separation, happens on the subtle level as one cycle flows into the next. It is an exquisite moment of vivid presence.

 

Day Out of Time is a day of celebration and creativity, fun and play. It is a border crossing time and it is good to go into it with awareness of its potential for change. If you would like further information on this Day Out of Time, search those keywords, as well as Mayan Calendar and immerse yourself in unfolding mystery.

 

The second set of power dates coming up occur from 9:12 PM Eastern Daylight Time, July 27, 2011 to 02:16 AM, Eastern Daylight Time on July 30, 2011. During this time, the Sun is in the sign of Leo and the Moon is in the sign of Cancer. These signs represent the home bases of the two primary lights in our life, the Sun and Moon. There is a natural order here and the opportunity is to synchronize with our own true nature in alignment with Life. Notice how you feel, what you want, what you want to do and transmit wishes, hopes, dreams and desires, as well as constructive actions, into the Universe.

 

Scientists tell us that eggs can stand on end during the days of the equinoxes. The Sun in Leo and the Moon in Cancer represents a similar potency of vertical axis alignment of us within nature. It happens once a calendar year and it is ours to acknowlege and enjoy.

 

The third set of pivotal dates coming up is two-fold. August 8, 2011 is the cross -quarter day. In the Cardinal Cross of our existence, North, South, East and West, cross-quarter days represent a fulcrum, the pivotal turning from one season to the next. Cross-quarter days are potent times for listening for direction. Spending time in nature helps access deep listening.

 

Two days before this, August 6 and 7th 2011 are potent manifesting days when our Sun is at the midpoint of the Galatic Center and the Super Galactic Center. We are in a pivotal configuration with our cosmos during this time, one that represents a sublime alignment with our galaxy. Again, this is a time to discern with kindness and wisdom what it is we want and need and then reach out with open arms, releasing wishes, wants, needs and desires on one hand and opening to receive, on the other hand, intuition and inner wisdom regarding the fulfillment of those wishes, needs, wants and desires.


Alignment with natural cycles represents a powerful technique for opening intuition and knowing how to live the potential of who we are as co-creators with Life. Our life, on planet earth, in a living galaxy.
