Eclipse Season – Summer 2018


Eclipse Season is upon us. 

Partial Solar Eclipse :  July 13 at 20CAN41

Total Lunar Eclipse : July 27 at 4AQU55

Partial Solar Eclipse :  August 11 at 18LEO42

The August 11 Solar Eclipse is connected to the Grand Cross Eclipse of August 1999. This was a historic eclipse that heralded a new millennium; a new age.

Eclipses have a 19 year cycle, and are connected by degrees. Much has transpired in the last (almost) 20 years. What has changed for you? There is an idea we are slowly ascending to a higher consciousness in a spiral pattern. Although, much of the time, it feels like we are moving in circles, but maybe sometimes, with hard work, we move a little higher.

Happy Eclipse Season.

And as difficult as it may be in these uncertain times, still:

JAN 27, 2017 : 9 AQUARIUS : AN EAGLE


We were told to give him a chance. Give him the opportunity to govern. Give him time to transition from campaign to governing.

That time has passed.

Trump has proved himself over and over again, an incompetent, spiteful, and shameless narcissistic bully. Reason and rational discourse(never a Trump strength) are nowhere to be found. Does anyone find it surreal that he expects another country to pay for a WALL HE WANTS TO BUILD? What other leader in the world would request something like this? Something so bizarre? Trump is normalizing extreme behavior.

And where is the outrage among Democratic Leaders? And even the somewhat moderate Republicans? This is madness. This is incomprehensible.


Its up to us now.

We have a highly symbolic image pertinent to the US for this NEW MOON:

The Sabian Symbol for this New Moon, is in Aquarius: The Age of Brotherhood.


Keynote: They dynamic incorporation of new social values in individuals who exemplify the spiritual potential and greatest significance of these values.

[All that is implied here is the vitalization of a powerful symbol, its embodiment in a living reality, i.e, in a person able to fly in consciousness to the highest spiritual realm. The archetype is given living substance and wings. The Image has become a Power.]

To “see” the new archetype, to perceive the new standard of value with one’s mind is not enough. The seer must become the doer. The impersonal is dynamized and brought into focus. We have here the ACTING OUT of the vision.

This New Moon begins the cycle culminating at the Full Moon Eclipse on February 10, followed by a potent Solar Eclipse on February 26. The Solar Eclipse features a MARS/URANUS/ERIS conjunction in fiery Aries, opposing Jupiter in Libra, and squaring Pluto in Capricorn. The energies of the Eclipses will escalate what we have experienced so far this year.

Eclipse season is upon us, giving a preview to the Great American Eclipse on August 21, 2017.

JAN 16, 2017 : Dr. Martin Luther King : LOVE WINS


Today we honor a great man, who spoke of LOVE overcoming hate, prejudice, repression, and dehumanization. Dr. King addressed the issues of tumultuous times, and a shameful history that led to the uprising of the 60’s.

54 Years Later. Here. We. Are. Again.

TRUMPERS 1984: The Art of DoubleSpeak

While mostly horrified, I am continually fascinated by the Trump Tricksters use of Doublespeak(Newspeak) to defend their incompetence and agenda. If you are not familiar with Orwell’s novel 1984(Nineteen Eighty-Four), it would be a good time to get familiar with it.

[The tyranny is epitomized by Big Brother, the Party leader who enjoys an intense cult of personality but who may not even exist. The Party “seeks power entirely for its own sake. It is not interested in the good of others; it is interested solely in power.Wikipedia

The fact that people actually believe what Trump is saying frightens me to no end. Has our country become that “dumbed down”? I read that 40% of US adults get their news from Facebook, is this true?

The Trumpers continue to lie about the landslide election, an actual viable replacement for ACA (but its a big secret), whipping up millions of high-paying jobs, all the while sucking up to one of the greatest dictators of our time. Yes, any thinking person would be terrified.

Teflon Trump will have some hard times ahead. His progressed Moon was conjunct his natal Venus when he slithered by in the Electoral College Win in November. However his progressed Moon will soon be moving into his 12th house; the house of hidden enemies, institutions, but mostly KARMA. Or as others put it, our UNCONSCIOUS. The progressed Moon is a telling indicator of major events in a person’s life.

On August 21, 2017, there will be a total SOLAR ECLIPSE at 29 LEO. This eclipse will land right on Trumps natal Ascendant. This will be a potent eclipse, in astronomy circles its being called The Great American Total Solar Eclipse and will traverse the US starting in Oregon and ending in South Carolina(interesting stopping point).

These with other factors, will I believe bring Trump down. I say this with a heavy heart, as our country is already in such a polarized state. However the drama of the Trumpers and the continual chaos cannot continue for 4 years, I don’t think our country can survive it. Mike Pence, although with many, many issues, is not the drama queen of Trump. And things although not great, would at least be calmer.

And we all have a choice. LOVE or hate.


We are all the same, no matter the color of skin, dollars in the bank, position in society, male, female, we are all the same, we are all from Light and to Light we shall return, regardless of religion, atheism, whatever deity we choose to identify with, or none at all, WE ARE ALL ONE.

Treat others with kindness, compassion and respect, everyone you come in contact with everyday, no matter how hard it is.




In Love & Light,




NOV, 2016 : TAURUS FULL MOON : The Upside Down

2016 US Election

Netflix has a hit show, “Stranger Things” a summer surprise hit; a take on 80’s flicks, where kids are the heroes and defeat the evil government scientists. They stumble into this when one of their friends gets drawn into the Upside Down. A parallel universe, the “negative” of our plane here. Where we live in Light, the Upside Down is dark, a forever gray, snowy, dystopian place, where monsters live.

The. Upside. Down.










On the night of November 8 2016, our reality tilted, perhaps I should say my reality tilted. I believed I lived in a country where misogyny and racism were on the way out.

After all we had just had 8 years of a black president; a thoughtful, measured, and intelligent man. Who worked hard to get the uninsured healthcare, who worked hard to bridge the divide with the staunchly republican congress, who worked hard to get the economy back on track, to where the US now has an unemployment rate of less than 5%. Who worked hard to better the lives of all in our country.

The white lady was perceived to have a bad history, although not Snow White, she had served her country for more than 30 years; I have no doubt without her efforts as First Lady to implement healthcare for everyone, there would not have been an Affordable Care Act. She worked hard to improve the lives of women and children. She was instrumental in taking out, perhaps the most “wanted” criminal the US ever had, the person who instigated the horror of 9/11. She is by light years, the more qualified, competent and steady candidate.

I wrote this on January 1, 2016

We will see the end to the historic presidency of Barack Obama, and this time next year, the US will have a new President, and NO ONE can possibly predict who that will be.

I wrote this in May 2016.

We have stepped into a new reality; one where a shady, celebrity business man who is famous for saying “You’re FIRED!” is in all probability going to be the 2016 US PRESIDENTIAL REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE.

I saw the cracks, but did not comprehend that everything I believed was wrong. We are still mired in racism, misogyny and hate. The US elected a narcissistic racist misogynist buffoon. But he is a WHITE MALE.

I have read much about how the Democratic Party failed, how the pollsters failed, how the media failed.

We have all failed. We have collectively chosen to embrace the monsters. And for the next 4 years we will live in the UPSIDE DOWN.

We have stepped into a new reality; one where a shady, celebrity business man who is famous for saying “You’re FIRED!” is in all probability going to be the 2016 US PRESIDENTIAL REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE.

Does this strike anyone as madness?

At first it seemed like a joke, then there was denial, then a strange sort of acceptance and surrender from the Republican Party.

On the Democratic side, upstart Bernie(a Senator for many years) is giving Hillary a run for her money. And Hillary, White Queen or Red Queen?

Is this madness? Or is this the dire result of a very unhappy electorate? I would say a little of both.

2016 has been quite the year to date. Powerful Eclipses in March, SuperMoons, and a Powerful Full Moon takes place on the Summer Solstice on June 20, with more Eclipses to follow in August and September, quite the year indeed.

The astrology for this Full Moon can be heard below, changing things up a bit at the Sag Full Moon!








JAN 1, 2016 : LIBRA LAST QUARTER MOON : What now?


Last Quarter Moon at 12 Degrees Libra


We start the year 2016 with a last quarter lunation; last quarter moons represent waning, winding down, an end to the cycle that started with the new moon. Typically last quarter moons are a time for reflecting and wrapping things up; endings.

Just so happens that our beloved trickster, Mercury, turns retrograde on January 5th, another backwards start to a new year.

In numerology, 2016 adds up to a 9 year; 9 also represents the end of a cycle.

2016 is a Red Fire Monkey year in Chinese astrology; Monkey is the 9th animal in 12 Chinese zodiac signs, and the Chinese New Year begins on Feb 8th.

We will see the end to the historic presidency of Barack Obama, and this time next year, the US will have a new President, and NO ONE can possibly predict who that will be.

Here is a list of a few things I would like to see end:

Hatred and Violence

Violence against Women

Violence against Children

Violence against Animals

Violence against the Earth

Poverty and Starvation


Unimaginable Corporate Greed and Rampant Materialism

As endings bring new beginnings, here is what I wish for:

That all people would begin to understand we are part of something far greater than our current state of consciousness can comprehend.

That there is no one “right” deity, or government, or movement, that justifies violence in their name.

That basically, we are all made of the same stuff, and we need to wake the fuck up.

Magical thinking, of course, but can’t stop me from wishing.

The Sabian Symbols for this Last Quarter Moon on January 1, 2016:



[Keynote: The need to carry on at ever deeper levels the quest for knowledge which keeps burning the fires of the collective mind of a society.] (Rudhyar)

SUN at


[Keynote: The ability to explore unfamiliar realms and discover the laws underlying the complex processes of nature.] (Rudhyar)

As someone who studies the energies of our world, and the influences of the heavens, people keep asking me what is it, what is going on right now? And I find I have no answer. Things have gone off the charts, the grind, the energies so intense that everyday feels like a full moon and full moons feel like eclipses. The best we can do is stay present, pay attention, be fluid, and flow with the continual fluctuations. Take care of ourselves and help others as best we can.




In Love & Light,
