The Full Moon Pivot, from Creating to Sharing

Full Moon Phase, July 14, 2022, 7:52 AM to Fourth Quarter Moon Phase, June 20, 2022, 11:11 PM

It is that time of the Lunar month when we switch directions from in to out. Every moment of every day calls on us to assess that core choice. Yet, the Lunar Cycle helps embody this switch in visual and visceral ways.

It’s challenging to align with the ebb and flow of the Moon. We might feel the conditioning to keep our heads down and keep the focus on producing, no matter how our body feels. In 2022, we are far removed from the Indigenous living that reflects our connection with nature in all that we do.

Self-awareness helps us stay with the current. Identifying and caring for our feelings and needs keeps us present.

The Center for Nonviolent Communication (NVC) has two inventories that can be helpful as we flow with our Moon. The first is a feelings inventory. We can move through the feeling unencumbered when we own what we feel, free of labeling as good or bad.

One central tenet of NVC is that under every feeling is a need. Once we identify the feeling, we can explore the need that drives the feeling.

We are spiritual beings living a human life. How we feel is not always pretty or peaceful. Feelings are messengers, and untended feelings block our flow.

Performing feelings and needs audits during a Full Moon can be an effective way of self-care that helps us lighten up and flow with the Moon.

How to use these inventories:

  1. Carve out quiet time to review the feelings list. Circle the feelings you recognize as being current. Maybe do a relaxation technique, like gentle, rhythmic breathing, and go back to the list and pull out the top three feelings. Then identify the top feeling.
  2. Next, take out the needs list. Maybe continue with the relaxing breaths to get to a calm space where you can be curious and kind. Review the needs list to see what needs lie underneath your top feelings.
  3. Circle as many needs as apply to you. Then, note the top three needs, then the top need. Embrace the core need that fuels your core feeling
  4. Acknowledge the legitimacy of that need
  5. Ask your intuition how that need can be met
  6. Over the following days or weeks, stay in touch with how the need is getting met. If the need is not getting met, ask your intuition, pray, meditate, journal, draw, and use any tool you have to help you get that need honored and included in your life
  7. You can ask a friend or a family member to do this audit with you.

Please share your experiences and insights in the comments section. That is also a place to ask questions if you have them.

In this Full Moon week, may you anchor in your Coeur, your heart, and shine your light, mirroring our Moon’s endless teaching of the reciprocal rhythm of life, receiving, and giving.  

5D Here, Now

As we talk about the shift from inner to outer, self to other, in this week’s Lunar phase focus, let’s look at the capacity of 5D where Sovereignty and Unified Harmony co-exist. Consciousness at the level of 3D cannot grasp the experience of being sovereign and inclusive. Indigenous Peoples have modeled sovereignty and inclusion. Those working consciously with the shift to 5D consciousness can look to indigenous cultures to see how they combine being sovereign and inclusive.

In contemporary society, humans have been conditioned by an overlord boss and a subservient server-class system since the Industrial Age [i]  Fast forward to the current imprint of the billionaires and the rest of us. This outdated programming is changing. Please note DeAndre Brown’s TikToks, where he shows acceptable work boundaries.

The tide is turning, and more people like DeAndre Brown say yes to living sovereignly as a non-hierarchal part of the whole.

The work of the Nonviolent Communication community and many other groups around the world teach that self-empathy and self-care are at the center of well-being. As each recurring lunar cycle starts with building the self into a creative expression that can be shared during the second half of the cycle, we start, too, with self-care and self-empathy.

We must stop the war within ourselves before putting fires out around us.

In case you have not seen it, I highly recommend viewing Pam Gregory’s YouTube video Ghosts in the Theatre – YouTube. My direct experience of Pam’s teaching is that it helps uplift to the highest vibration, the highest self-care vibe possible for these challenging times.

Void of Course Moon Times this Week

I have been waiting for this – a daylong Void Moon in my timezone. I consider Void Moons like snow days or playing hookey. As I have written earlier, I feel these void times in my blood and bones and find it impossible to produce during them. I plan and schedule accordingly.

As you see in the times listed below, our Moon is Void of Course, all day in the Eastern Time Zone for the United States and Canada on Tuesday, June 14, 2022. An extended Void Moon during regular business hours also affects other time zones in these countries. For Europe, the times occur in the evening, and for Australia, and New Zealand, during the middle of the night.

If you are curious, start tracking your energy levels, productivity, and ability to focus during void Moon times. Please share your experiences in the comments section.

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:

Tuesday, June 14, 10:58 AM to 6:14 PM EDT

Thursday, June 16, 2:41 PM to 5:44 PM EDT

Saturday, June 18, 2:50 PM to 7:01 PM EDT

This Lunar Week Leads Us to Crescendo

Second Quarter Phase, June 7, 2022, 10:40 AM to Full Moon Phase, June 14, 2022, 7:52 AM

This is the week that brings the Boom! Last week we started new; this week, we build toward fullness. In this second Lunar week, we are more energetic, encouraged, and empowered to propel our projects and creations forward.

There is a catch during this second week, though. Those in bodies graced with menstruation know the direct effect of the few days just before the period starts. You know it is coming, and the tension is taut. It is the same experience for everyone the few days before the Full Moon. We know the release is coming, yet the crescendo remains out of reach no matter how far we extend our grasp. We must wait.

This longing to connect with release can be experienced as frustration. We can reframe the delay, the waiting, and the yearning by understanding that this stretch to release is a rich part of the process. 

A yogic approach to life helps with this longing phase. Literally or metaphorically, stretch yourself into the overarching reach that culminates in the Full Moon. This is when more is revealed. The valve opens, and the flow pours forth. This is like holding that yoga pose for a few seconds longer. This is like accepting the gentle touch from a wise yoga teacher to get in just a little closer alignment with what is at the end of your reach.

These final stretch days occur from Saturday, June 11, to the Full Moon on Tuesday, June 14, at 7:52 AM EDT. Tend to your feelings with patience and corral your thoughts by turning them to the favorable winds.

In the first half of this Second Quarter week, feel the passion for creating. Then in the second half of the week, feel the stretch of extension beyond what you could imagine. Soon your energies will meet with the cosmic powers of the Moon in her fullness. The Light of release, freedom, realization, and fulfillment blazes here.

Create and wait. Wait with full extension of arms, heart, possibility, and inner knowing that your gifts of creation are about to meet the full light of an open and receiving sky.

5D Here, Now

After many years of not writing, I started blog posting about a year ago to enter the conversation about 5D. I was writing a book and could not write directly about 5D because the book was taking shape.

The book is now published, 5D, Ordinary Descriptions of an Extraordinary Shift, and it connects the dots to the collective quantum changes that led to this rise in consciousness. The book is a basic primer for understanding what is happening in this shift to 5D.

Regarding the blog posts, I knew that one of the pillars of access to 5D is a new relationship with time. As an astrologer specializing in deep space and time cycles,  I know natural time cycles well, and I live them.

For four decades, I have felt the ebb and flow of the Lunar month and the Void Moons in my blood and bones. I started writing this weekly blog from the perspective of two things: the recurring Lunar phases, and the Void Moons. It has been a surprise that there is something new to say each week I sit down to write.

Now that 5D consciousness is more accessible, some readers have shared that it might be helpful to include examples of how we move from 3D to 5D. What does it look like and feel like, and how does the shift show up;?

Starting with this post, I include 5D experiences that I have had, hoping that shared experience might spark awareness about how 5D comes calling. The more we share, the easier it is to understand our experiences.

Recently, I have had a visceral experience of the surrounding space expanding. Of stepping up and onto a broader, more expansive vista. A bigger field. I imagine it is like the wagon train travelers coming from the East and experiencing the West’s vast open land and sky. My experience is like that, of a grand opening lifting me to a new plateau. The other experience is being pushed out of what was and into what is.

Are you feeling the cosmic pull to be bigger in your life than ever before?

If you feel fear on reading these words, please take a breath. Note that you have been growing from the first moment of your conception. The growth on offer is now more prominent, bolder, and broader than any previous growth development. The growth leap is quantum. We are up to it, or it would not be on offer.

Raising frequency is there for the taking, yet it requires expanding ourselves and releasing what no longer works.

Many people talk about decluttering. Some have already let go of belongings for which taking space was their only function. It is the same dynamic of letting go of people and habits, foods, and behaviors that have gone stale. We must release the limitations of habit, belief, and perception that hold us back from life in 5D.

It is impossible to live in 5D from the same level that we lived in 3D. We need to shed layers upon layers of the old and open wide to the new. The time is now to step up and out. The anchor is you—your intuition, your long-held goals, dreams, wishes, and longings.

False humility is a trapdoor of 3D. We are unique, and no one is better than the other. We must claim our uniqueness as we stand together in 5D. Being humble and hidden and deferring no longer works. It never did work, yet it was functional for the 3D environment. We now have access to 5D, and the gifts we have grown over eons are coming into light and consciousness.

False humility is a trapdoor of 3D

We are not used to naming our powers, yet we have to become used to doing so. In 5D, everyone’s bright light shines. How do you know your unique gifts? The Universe is broadcasting them to you now. Through feedback you receive from people in your life, groups, associations, friends, and relatives, even people new to you reflect what they see. 

You have known your special gifts in a glow-in-the-dark kind of way. With the platform expanded, the lights shine on who you are and what you bring. The experience is like a call and response from the Universe. Saying yes empowers and uplifts you. Saying yes plugs you into expanded potential.

I am inclusive and love unconditionally. I live felt empathy. Your turn. What is your highlight capacity as we live in 5D consciousness?

Please share your unique gifts in the comments or email me at Consider this a practice session where you own and use who you are and what you have. Let’s beam our lights together, so the darkness in our world dims through our collective shining bright lights.

Blessed, blessed be.

Void of Course Moon Times this Week

I know that the Void Moon matters related to productivity and outcomes. I feel the Void Moon in my blood and bones and find it extremely hard to focus and work during Void Moon times.

Consider tracking the Void Moon times if your physicality links to the Moon’s ebbs and flows, and Her stops and starts. Doing so can help you plan and predict energy levels. Using the Void Moon as a productivity tool can save your body and resources wear and tear.

The work of dreaming, daydreaming, journaling, pondering, and resting are highly rewarded during Void Moon times. As you explore this timing for yourself, consider that rest is part of the productivity cycle.

Around the world, the Void Moon times are short this week. For those in the Eastern or Central Time US and Canada zones, Wednesday morning, June 8, is affected; this translates to evening downtime for European time zones.

Friday, June 10, for people in the Eastern and Central US and Canada time zones, might feel like starting the weekend early. Those in Western and Mountain time zones, US and Canada, might enjoy a break in the early part of Friday, getting back to work in the afternoon.

For readers in Europe, the Void Moon times this week occur in the late afternoon and evening hours, with little disruption to a daytime work schedule.

May you realize the Moon blessing you through her phase flow and Void Moon respites wherever you are in the world.

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:

Wednesday, June 8, 8:09 AM to 11:23 AM EDT

Friday, June 10, 1:37 PM to 4:41 PM EDT

Threading the New Moon into the Tapestry of your Creations

The Value of a Reset

Maybe you use the end of the calendar year, the birthday, or the end of your fiscal year to reflect and reset. You might not realize that each New Moon allows us to reset. In a 28-day cycle, the nightly love light in our sky gives us a chance to start new.

We do not throw the baby out with the bathwater with these fresh starts. We build on what we have understood, accomplished, and ventured forward. The New Moon offers spiraling new threads in the tapestry of our being.

We build on these refresh points to enhance self-understanding, our relationships, family life, work, creativity, and soul work. It is human nature to want second chances, and each New Moon gives us that.

Allow the New Moon to find its legs, maybe 24 to 36 hours into the new cycle, to allow the new conscious capacity to awaken. The New Moon phase is like the infancy phase in human growth and development. In flowing from the end of one cycle into the beginning of the next cycle, we move from formlessness into form. We take a while to wake up to the new life and opportunity.

Feeling the refresh and restart point of each New Moon represents subtle energy. The human body is resonant, though. If we slow down and allow for stillness, we can feel the ending of one Lunar Cycle and the beginning of the next. This embodied awareness translates into monthly fresh starts.

If you want to get started following the Lunar Cycle as a natural reset button for your physiology, vision, goal setting, intention manifesting, self and family caregiving, here are tips for getting started:

  1. Note the New Moon in the calendar that you use. Most calendars identify the date/time of each New Moon, and if this information is not in the calendar you use regularly, it is easy to input that information.
  2. Realize that each New Moon reflects the infancy stage of human growth and development. As the new cycle gets started, you might feel nebulous, unembodied, or ungrounded. That is part of the process which adds to the awareness of a new beginning.
  3. Within 24 to 36 hours of the New Cycle, you will probably feel stronger, clearer, and not as hazy or vague.
  4. Set intentions for what you want to begin or add to your current creation.
  5. For relationships, intimate and familial, consider celebrating each new lunar cycle, within three days of its start, with a meeting or a meal where you share accountability and plans. This is a time to check-in and keep fresh with what everyone wants and needs in real-time.
  6. Realize within yourself the chance to start new. Do you need to update the post-it notes on your mirror? Do you need to set new goals or deadlines? Remember, this is a 28-day cycle so that you can focus on short-term, easy, and flexible.
  7. Look up in the sky some night during the first week of the New Moon phase and see the shape of the Moon. Own that new beginning within you.

The above suggestions relate to the Collective Lunar Cycle, which covers all of us on Earth. As described in earlier posts, the Personal Lunar Cycle is determined by the phase of the Moon in which you are born. So, you can also access a second refresh point each Lunar month. I cannot stress enough how valuable a sense of this timing is to human wellbeing. The Collective and the Personal Lunar Cycles are how we spiral through life. They are innate rhythms within and around us. 

A workbook on A New Relationship with Time is in the works, and more information on these natural cycles is included in that workbook. If you have questions before that workbook is published, please bounce back in the comments or email

Please also look up at the Moon and feel Her loving wisdom radiate back to you, permeating your physiology, consciousness, and heart.

Void of Course Moon Times this Week

If you are ever curious about why you lose the plot unexpectedly, consider checking out the Void of Course Moon. When there are no aspects – geometrical relations between the Moon and the personal planets – the Moon is Void. Buckminster Fuller taught us that energy is contained in the form.

Sacred geometry, the geometrical relationship between spaces, provides the forms to contain energy. Sacred geometry is everywhere–the seating dynamics of your dining table, conference room meeting, office set-up–anywhere people are gathered, a geometrical shape represents the social configuration.

As above, so below. The geometrical shapes formed in the sky between the Moon and a personal planet give form to the energetic structure that supports the function.

When the Moon is Void, there is no container for the energy to function. The energy is free-floating. These are perceptible feelings within the human body. I have people close to me, not interested in astrology, yet they have heard me talk about the Void Moon so often that they now feel it. They ask Aureal, where’s that Moon?

If efficiency is one of your high values, and if you do not want to waste time, money, or energy, paying attention to the Void Moon times warrants a look.

The Sun is Involved, Too

In the quantum leap to the 5th Dimension consciousness, the entirety of our cosmos transforms. Our Sun is in on this shift, too. We now have solar flares, sunspots, the Schumann Resonance, plasma downloads, and much activity that affects our physicality. It used to be that I could look at the Void of Course Moon tables and plan and schedule downtime. Now, with the Sun and atmospheric shifts involved, there is not an ephemeris, a table to look at for predictable times.

This is why it is vital to allow your body to be your timer in life. When you are tired, consider not pushing forward. Consider resting, restoring, and receiving the downloads, even if you are unaware of the higher frequencies being downloaded. Resting when your body wants that, stopping when it hurts to proceed,  helps raise your frequency and, therefore, your capacity to do your work with more fulfillment and optimized outcome.

Practicing stopping and resting during Void Moons helps build the capacity to stop when our Sun and atmosphere raise frequencies. When we witness and positively respond to the atmospheric impacts, even if we do not understand them, we affirm our belonging as part of the whole.,, and many of the YouTube posters that share information on the Schumann Resonance are sources for more details on these electromagnetic and atmospheric changes.  

Void of Course Moon Times

The Void of Course Moon times occurs according to your time zone. Please use the time zone link to determine the Void of Course Moon times where you live.

For all of us around the globe, the Void Moon times are relatively short this week. For the United States and Canada, Tuesday, May 31, afternoon and evening are affected, and morning or midday on Friday, June 3. For Europe, it looks like the Moon is void during late evening and overnight hours.

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.

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:

Tuesday, May 31, 4:10 PM to Wednesday, June 1, 1:49 AM EDT
