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.

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.

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.

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.
