On Friday, July 27, the full moon will pass through the shadow of the Earth for 103 minutes. It will be the longest “blood moon” lunar eclipse of the century, as the moon turns red in the shadow of the Earth for nearly two hours.

This is a rather intense full moon, (some of you have been feeling it for days already), that creates a window to speak your truth, embrace your personal power, and step up to a new level of integrity, maturity and confidence It is a perfect time for a bid for Power. What do you really and truly want that you either feel you don’t deserve, you don’t have the skills or time to create, or you simply don’t believe it could happen? Face your doubts, fears and anxieties, and ask for help and support for your bigger dreams.

This is a great time for transformation, expansion and clearing of some very deep old emotional insecurities and wounding. It is a good sign if you feel slightly unbalanced, emotional and vulnerable. Great healing is possible and forgiveness is a key.
It is a good time also to revisit the details of your physical environment and to put some energy into what will support you better. Take a look with fresh eyes at what you have been putting up with and make some decisions to improve your surroundings. Be proactive with this time and beware of falling into judgment, negativity, lethargy and despair. If it happens, focus on something that inspires you, that makes you happy and feel good.

A new moon message for this time.

July 11, 2018

Face challenges with compassion and kindness and remember that not everyone has the tools that you do to see the bigger picture. It is easy to get swept up into the negative and to react to the injustices and imbalances and reactions of others. Don’t take the bait. Bring love and gratitude into your interactions and actions whenever you can and give others the benefit of the doubt even if you don’t believe they deserve it. On a positive note, this is an incredible time to launch something new, pushing the edge of what you think you can accomplish. Take a risk, make a bid for power, step up and show up with more confidence and maturity. The new moon is a time to set intentions and make commitments to how you will stay your ground and be an example for others. And it is OK to ask for help. Support is everywhere. You just have to accept and receive it.

The New moon with a partial solar eclipse (the first of three) is Thurs., July 12th, at 8:47 pm MST.

 

‘…a powerful, wonderful, and exciting time.’

Full Moon

Wednesday, January 31st

6:27 am MST

There is fire and determination in this powerful moon. It is best to do something physically active and moving centered during this time. Use your action to represent your desires and intentions. Stay away from toxic people, arguments, heated discussions that don’t go anywhere, and your own fruitless worries and obsessions.

Bring in the element of emotional healing through music and other creative expression. Express love and gratitude and make sure to do whatever it takes to keep your frequency high and to stay away from any negativity. An eclipse always opens up a more powerful portal and initiates change. Use this energy to fuel changes that you want and be ready to jump into action when they happen. Wait for right timing and allow for things to unfold instead of effecting at them. This is a powerful, wonderful and exciting time. Use it well.

This total lunar eclipse will happen during the second full moon this month — a bonus event known as a “blue moon.” Such a coincidence (and it is nothing more than a coincidence) has not occurred in 150 years. Topping things off, this moon will be a “supermoon,” meaning it will appear slightly bigger and brighter than average.

A year of service.

December 29, 2017

Full Moon is Monday, January 1st 

Spend some good intentional time and using your emotions, intuition and imagination, set your dreams and desires for the coming year if you have not already done so. If you have, then spend a bit of time either expanding your imagination of what is possible or trying those dreams on energetically.

This is also a very good time to set specific intentions of how you wish and need to serve yourself in the coming weeks and months. This is a year of service and service needs to start with you personally. If you can’t serve yourself, you cannot be of support and service to others. This is a nurturing moon that will inspire you to clean your nest, do your laundry, and focus on how to make your home environment more supportive to you this year. Remember it does not all have to get done today, but you can still set concrete intentions of what you wish to see happen in the coming year.

Solstice Transition

December 20, 2017

The Solstice is Thursday, December 21.

‘A solstice is always a powerful time to release the past and to welcome and anchor in a new cycle complete with a new set of intentions, resolutions and goals. This solstice in particular is potent for stretching your dreams, thinking outside the box and putting yourself out there just a little bit more. The most important thing is to make sure you honor this transition and make time to work with the energies.

Do a ritual of some sort, burning a writing of what you are releasing and leaving behind as well as concretely anchoring and welcoming a new cycle, a new dream and what you wish to manifest and upgrade for yourself from now on. You can do this visually by writing or drawing or creating something of an offering to put on your altar or give to the fire. Whether in the northern or southern hemisphere, think of the solstice as a time of reset, a powerful transition from the past into the future. Think of it as the beginning of a new cycle with new influences and new opportunities. The more aware and present you are with the idea of a reset and transition, the more powerful the solstice will be for you.

In this time frame we are in, we have an opportunity to really move from one vibrational frequency to another, upgrading everything in the process. The price is your willingness to let go for good of what holds you back. Only you know what that is.’

New Moon on Saturday, Nov. 18th

The theme for this new moon is creating positive change out of challenging circumstances.

☆☆¸.•*¨*•☆☆•* ☾¨*•.¸¸☆☆

Anything that has been a hardship for you, and can be seen as a negative experience, can be used as a powerful agent to shift into something new. This is a new moon and will support anything new. Take the pieces of the old, whether an old dream, an old life, or challenging lesson, and use the power of those experiences to fuel what wants to emerge from the ashes.

It is a time where healing that comes from a shift in attitude and reaction is on the table. We may be triggered again, the same way were were during the time of the eclipse (actual trigger point on November 20). So take advantage of the opportunity to reset what needs it. As you turn the soil of our life, focus more on the gifts and inspiration you are discovering that what you regret or feel bad about. Do a practice every day from now until the solicit on December 21st of dreaming an improved life.

November 3, 2017

This full moon has the potential for creating crisis that can assist in breaking through from stagnation, calcification and stubbornness where anger and irritation play a big role, to a softer, emotional and vulnerable experience where creativity rules and imagination is fertilized with gratitude, love and awe.

Accept and acknowledge the structures that have served you so well up till now. And then, make a commitment to do it differently, allowing for change. In honor of the theme of turning the soil, it would be appropriate if you actually did that either physically in a garden or psychologically by recapitulating your past and revisiting some of the more significant events of your life. Be flexible and allow some things to break off and others to surface.

POWER PATH

November: Turning the Soil

November 2, 2017

POWER PATH

When one has focused only on what is seen and shows up on the surface, what is beneath that surface becomes less and less fertile as time goes on. This month is it time to dig down deep and turn up what is underneath, bring it to the surface, inspect it, break it up, feed it, aerate it and fertilize it in preparation for new seeds.

This is what this month is all about.

Because we are turning the soil of our own lives, we get to discover what we forgot we had, as well as to observe where we need more growth and fertilization. Think of yourself as a plant in your own garden. Are you feeling root-bound by your own stubbornness, calcification and attachments? Have you allowed any new energy in the form of new ideas and inspirations into your life? Have you nourished yourself spiritually? Does your life feel somewhat small and pinched?

Some of you might be doing just great at this time. But some of you are still feeling in that transitional place of not quite knowing whether things are moving in the right direction or not, or how to proceed to make the most of these times.

In the example of working the soil, when the earth beneath is neglected and gets too dry and calcified, there is no more room for the roots to grow and the plant becomes stunted and less likely to produce big beautiful blooms. The analogy of you being a plant in your own garden is a good one to focus on this month as it is very applicable to what is going on in the world. You can see those who are mired in their stubborn beliefs as creating great limitations for themselves in this time of potential breakthrough and growth.

Fertility is a big theme this month as well. You get to study how it shows up in your life and whether you have enough of it or not. Are your projects fertile? Is your life fertile? Are your relationships fertile? Is your imagination fertile?

There will be numerous opportunities to discover what you are missing and what you wish you had more of. And maybe you find you want to change things up, plant something new, do some bigger landscaping on your life. We have excellent support for this now as we revisit similar energies to the time of the eclipse. This gives us a second chance to do accomplish what we didn’t back then.

One of the gifts of this time is the discovery of new passions and the rediscovery of old talents. As you turn up your past, your history, and your old dreams and inspirations, you may discover that you really do want to play music or write a book or be an artist or work with animals or children. It may be painful to look at and acknowledge the situations or reasons why you never followed through on those dreams. That’s the stuff under the ground that needs to be turned up, and your willingness, determination and discipline to do so is the shovel you will use.  Let those disappointments, judgments and regrets go.  Become neutral, practice forgiveness and then rekindle the passion and get some support in following through.

This could be a very exciting time for those of you who finally decide to follow your dreams. There is great opportunity for that this month. The challenges are going to be trusting the outcome, having the courage to make new choices, and staying out of blame. Inertia could set in when fear comes up around moving forward. Old wounds connected to regret and failure could surface as well. Work through them, move forward and prepare your own “field” for a season of planting new seeds of old familiar dreams into freshly fertilized and upgraded soil.

 

How the month shows up:

 

YOU PERSONALLY

Another layer of old feelings from childhood wounds, old regrets and disappointments is ready to be uncovered and may have to be processed and forgiven in order to move forward. It is time to let go and to reclaim any power that was lost as a preparation for planting new seeds. The level of your energy or chi will be something you will become very aware of this month. Do you have enough? What feeds you? Where are your energy leaks?

You will also have an opportunity to see clearly where you are lacking and what you need to do to correct it. Fertility is a field in which creative ideas and intentions can take root and grow and manifest. In order for something to be fertile, it needs to be fertilized. There are many ways you can fertilize the container of your life. With beauty, inspiration, enthusiasm, love, gratitude, a little awe and a good spiritual practice.

It is great month to rediscover what you truly desire and what you have a talent for. Be courageous and take a risk. The veil is thin between what is so and what can be, so take advantage of this somewhat unstable time to make your move.  Good mantra for the month is “I can”.

 

RELATIONSHIPS

As usual, relationships are at the point of growth and are always affected in many different ways by the themes we are working with. There is great opportunity for healing past relationships this month. Especially the ones that caused you a lot of grief and still seem to be running the show, need to be forgiven so you can move on. Where do you still feel indebted to someone? And who are you holding hostage to being indebted to you in some way? This dynamic only causes the energy to be stuck and for the same tapes to be played over and over. We mentioned that there would be similar aspects this month to the time of the eclipse. Watch closely for what gets stirred up and triggered. You have a second chance to clear, clean and forgive.

The exciting thing about relationships this month is that you get to discover new connections that inspire and excite you as well as rediscover what you truly loved and enjoyed about someone. Don’t be surprised if connections from the past come into your present life. They could be there for some completion or there for rekindling something fun. Balance your time between your responsibilities to your current important relationships and what is coming into your life that needs to be explored. If a connection feels tired, you may need to fertilize it with some new ideas, energy and time.

 

HEALTH AND THE PHYSICAL BODY

Watch for trouble with joints, bones, body alignment, and phantom aches and pains that come and go. Energy levels will also continue to go through highs and lows with no apparent reason. Mental health can also be unstable in these times and some may not handle the energy very well. Watch for an increase in anxiety, sleeplessness and nonspecific fear. The instinctive center is pretty rattled right now with the uncertainty and confusion of what to do, when and where.

This is why we are suggesting being proactive this month with your tilling, turning and excavation. Because we are in preparation for the future by connecting with the past and bringing forward the important pieces, the body needs to process this transition. Letting go is visceral and reconnecting with talents and inspiration can require and adjustment mentally, emotionally and physically.

Nurture and fertilize and feed those parts of yourself that need it. Learn to put yourself first recognizing that what others are going through is their own personal journey. You can be compassionate without losing yourself in another’s misery. On a very positive note, you have the opportunity to reenergize your body and soul giving you a more inspired life.

 

BUSINESS PARTNERSHIPS PROJECTS

When you turn the soil on an old tired project, you come up with new ideas and fresh problem solving tools. Why did I not think of that before? Because it was not in your field, that’s why.

When you change your environment, face the past and forgive what did not work with compassion and understanding, the creativity can move forward. This is a good month to bring in new people, new ideas, a fresh look, to turn the soil and fertilize all projects and partnerships.

If you have a business that has been operating the same way for some time and feels tired, it could be time to think outside the box and come up with new strategies. It could be a very exciting time. It could also be a bit painful to let go of a project or business you have put your heart and soul into if you see it needs to happen. Go back to your passion. Remember what made you happy and inspired. Don’t be afraid to make a change.

When you turn the soil, you don’t always know what will turn up. When you reconnect with your original motivation, sometimes you can rediscover the inspiration and energy that initiated things for you. Fertilize that energy.

 

ENVIRONMENT

Interesting weather phenomena continue especially around the revisit of the eclipse influences later in the month. We could have more intense events that will keep our instinctive centers open and processing. It is important to ground yourself and to trust the earth. This is a necessary cycle and is supporting the kind of change we need and are going through at this time.

Focus on your personal environment especially if you have an outdoor space where you can bring a little order and beauty to an area. Build a medicine wheel or circle or spiral. Do a bit of landscaping, all in honor of the earth and the inherent order of nature. Be in nature as much as possible and know that you can ground wherever you are.

It is still a good idea to continue cleaning and clearing out the old, especially what does not resonate with you. A little at a time unless you get inspired to tackle a bigger project. As you get rid of something make sure you honor it for where it came from and how it has served you.

 

DATES AND TIME FRAMES

November 1-7: We are still striving for balance but with the insight that true balance will require working with the past and the future. So, start to turn the soil. Be aware of reminders of the past and invitations for accountability. This is not a time to go to sleep. It is a time to think about truly waking up. When a limb goes to sleep, it usually has to go through a painful period as it is waking up. You can bear it because you know it will be over shortly.

This is also so in the case of personal growth. You are disturbing the soil and waking up the energy by turning it over. You probably will experience some emotional, energetic, mental and even physical discomfort as you move through the reawakening of your passions and old dreams. But the alternative is to continue diminishing our field and not to live at all.

 

November 3: Full Moon is Friday, November 3 at 11:22PM Mountain Daylight Time (MDT). Note: those on Daylight Savings Time, it ends Sunday night November 5 at 2am.

This full moon has the potential for creating crisis that can assist in breaking through from stagnation, calcification and stubbornness where anger and irritation play a big role, to a softer, emotional and vulnerable experience where creativity rules and imagination is fertilized with gratitude, love and awe.

Accept and acknowledge the structures that have served you so well up till now. And then, make a commitment to do it differently, allowing for change. In honor of the theme of turning the soil, it would be appropriate if you actually did that either physically in a garden or psychologically by recapitulating your past and revisiting some of the more significant events of your life. Be flexible and allow some things to break off and others to surface.

 

November 8-15: We are processing, sometimes with confusion and sometimes with clarity. We can be foggy one day and extremely clear and determined the next. It is like an undulating wave and the best way to navigate is to just flow with it. You will get there eventually especially if you don’t fight the current. Use this time to really dig and turn up your old passions. Honor your talents and work on forgiveness towards anything or anyone that did not honor them.

This is a good window for sharing and communication, being with others in a new way, and getting support for a newly rediscovered dream. Be kind to your body and understand that the physical is always a little behind and usually has to catch up with any new energy coming in.

 

November 16-23: The theme for this time frame is courage. Courage to look at the difficult things, courage to try something new, courage to face old fears, courage to take a risk either in relationship or project, courage to be more vulnerable, courage to be seen, courage to speak your truth, and courage to give an old dream new wings. You may find yourself in a position where you feel you have to justify your decisions or prove something. Instead of falling back on old habits, have the courage to break them and move forward with more confidence. If you are following your heart and your truth, you do not need the permission of others to live your dream. Only your own.

This is the time frame when we could get another trigger from the same influences as we had around the eclipse. So, beware of radical events that cause instant change and disruption creating opportunities to think and act differently.  Let’s open our hearts and care for one another whether or not we have disruption or disaster.

 

November 18: New Moon is Saturday, November 18 at 4:42 AM Mountain Standard Time (MST)The theme for this new moon is creating positive change out of challenging circumstances. Anything that has been a hardship for you and could be seen as a negative experience can be used as a powerful agent to shift into something new. This is a new moon and will support anything new. Take the pieces of the old, whether an old dream, an old life, or challenging lessons and use the power of those experiences to fuel what wants to emerge from the ashes.

 

November 24-30: We may feel a bit road weary and worn out but there is a real inspired enthusiasm that comes with having survived and thrived in the face of challenging times. We would say that this is a time of sober celebration, honoring new choices but recognizing the work ahead. Take some time to rest and relax and take a break. The processing continues as well as the work towards more balance and the discipline of recapitulating the past. But we are in a rhythm now. I was once asked, “when is this going to end?” My answer: “It won’t ever end, we will just get used to it”. It is true that evolution only goes in one direction and we are constantly encouraged to step it up, raise our vibration and handle more. We can do it.

 

 

October 20, 2017

New Moon is Thursday, October 19

Power Path 

Use this new moon as a transition time from working on and experiencing your inner stability and balance, to using it as your container of support as you step out and show up more in your life. Take courage and commitment from some of the stronger energies surrounding this New Moon and continue to focus on how best to balance your life with what you have to work with at this time.

Revisit your intentions and refine them based on recent events, experiences, insights and acceptance of changes made by others. Practice being adaptable, observant, neutral, accepting and resilient. This may bring up having to look at your attachments and consciously work on letting them go. This is a time to be in community, get support, and make a stand for yourself. Be responsible for your own life. No-one else out there is.

Power Path/September

September 1, 2017

The main these for September is ADJUSTMENT.

We are now navigating the debris kicked up by events that triggered the RESET of August. We know something is different, and we know things should be different. We feel somehow different and some of us are manifesting big changes, but we cannot fully embrace the reality of it until we adjust on all levels, assimilating and integrating as we go.

So, this is the period of great ADJUSTMENT.

There is a new energy inside each one of us whether it is tangible at this point or not. This new energy requires that your environment, whatever that may be, adjust itself to you in a new way. This could mean a sudden move, a radical change in work, an upgrade in your home, vehicle or electronics or a change in your relationships including one with self. You may feel an overwhelming desire to clean out, move things around, get rid of the old, bring in the new get different support, make new friends, and generally upgrade your personal environment to reflect a new vibration and new intentions. When the adjustment is self-driven, it is exciting and inspiring even if it may be overwhelming at times.

What isn’t so exciting is the adjustment you personally may have to make to what has changed in your environment that is not consciously your choice. For example, if you find a change has been thrust upon you such as in work or relationship, you can either wallow in martyrdom and see yourself as a victim, or you can be neutral and embrace it as a necessary situation that will ultimately support you in the direction you need to go.

The main thing is to see all that is happening as a positive step in the direction of change. Whether you are informing the environment around you to adjust to the “new you”, or you are struggling to adjust to what is happening around you, the best attitude will be one of acceptance, patience, neutrality and trust. You will have days when you don’t know your bottom from your top, days of frustration with yourself and others, days when you are so inspired you can hardly contain the excitement, days when you feel overwhelmed, and days when you see inspiring glimpses of this new direction we are all going in.

Think of ADJUSTMENT in terms of your body. If you are not aligned correctly, you don’t function so well. You go to the chiropractor and get straightened out so the energy can flow again. In times of great change, there is always a period of feeling out of sorts, where some parts have made the change and others are being resistant or trying to catch up. This can result in feeling not quite “all there”, a little spaced out with a sense of not being able to hold onto any thought for too long. Instead of resisting this, take the time just to be in this container of adjustment. It is not always about doing. Sometimes rest is the prescription we need.

The most important thing is to be in acceptance of what is and of what is showing up.  There is a big picture at work here and we have not yet been able to see or experience fully the outcome of what we are currently creating for ourselves. We need to recognize this as a collective co-creation and take what comes. We also need to embrace the adjustment necessary in this process. The sun and the earth are at a new vibration, adjusting to each other, and since all of life is informed by those two energies, there is a need to adjust ourselves to this new vibration as fully as we can.

‘Big energy.’

April 9, 2017

Power Path

A full moon intensifies everything and this is especially true this month. It is up to you what gets intensified. Don’t indulge in the negative. Be proactive with your intentions and get fired up about something that inspires you. This is big energy we are dealing with these days. Mark this time of the full moon with some big intentions that you can start following up on with a grounded action plan.

Since it is just after midnight, tomorrow, April 10th, Monday is a good day to begin honoring and celebrating this moon. 
The anchor of this time needs to be time out in nature, honoring both the higher emotional center with its beauty and inspiration, and the instinctive center with its link to vitality and raw energy.

 

 

 

 

Power Path ~ April

April 3, 2017

The theme for April: INTENSITY!

It is a month of higher highs and lower lows. You can expect intense emotional mood swings, lots of weeping, incredible chaos that you think you can’t handle, and then amazing synchronicity where everything falls into place. There will be bursts of energy as well as unexpected times of deep fatigue where you can’t get out of bed. You may on one day experience overwhelming inspiration, incredible clarity, courage and determination; and on another, debilitating despair, deep confusion, and paralyzing fear.

Everything is intensified this month. Nothing escapes. If you are grieving it will be at a level you have never experienced. If you are ecstatic, it will be almost more than you can handle. The higher emotional center is paired with the instinctive center this month in an interesting relationship whose purpose is to stretch you like a rubber band, expanding your container to eventually be more, do more, receive more, understand more and experience more. The ultimate goal is to break through the membrane of our limited beliefs about how this universe works and what we are actually capable of creating. So that is the reference point we need to hold out there as a carrot for ourselves when things get tough this month.

April is full of growing pains. We are in the process of replacing the fabric and patterns of how we operate in this physical universe with a new matrix and energetic circuitry much like replacing a light fixture that was only able to handle 100 watts to one that can handle 1000. And then replacing the bulb from 100 watts to 1000 watts. Imagine the intensity of light from that sudden change!

Compassion in December.

December 1, 2016

bigstock-heart-or-love-icons-and-hand-a-69956092-440x440

Power Path

This month is all about turning our focus away from anger, blame, self-judgment, hopelessness, frustration, fear and worry. These are all attitudes and emotions that belong to a lower vibration and they do not serve us at this time. We need to be turning ourselves in the direction of the higher vibration of COMPASSION if we are to be effective in our lives, with ourselves and with others.

The definition of COMPASSION is: “Sympathetic consciousness of others’ (or personal) distress together with a desire to alleviate it.”

COMPASSION is a state of being that helps us all remember that we are not separate, that we are all in this great game of life together and that going about it alone is not effective or rewarding.

COMPASSION is best practiced from a neutral state of non-judgment and a perfect follow up from November’s theme of forgiveness. With everything that is going on out there in the world today, the best way to use your time and energy this month is to focus on yourself with COMPASSION for all the ways you have judged, blamed, suffered, and felt powerless and ineffective.

If you truly want to “alleviate the distress” on the planet, you need to start with yourself. All change begins at home. When was the last time you were truly kind to yourself? Not just rewards and gifts, but true kindness?

KINDNESS is another theme this month that goes along with COMPASSION. It is easier to be kind when you have compassion and it is easy to be compassionate when you practice kindness. So they go along hand in hand.

As the big wheel of evolution slowly turns away from the young soul, goal oriented, combative struggle where there are winners and losers, it is the masculine energy in each one of us that needs the most compassion, kindness and healing. We are emerging from a cycle of over 2000 years where the masculine standards of production, success, taking action, winning competitions and doing whatever it takes to get to the top have been our guiding principles.

In this process the masculine in each one of us has taken a beating and needs a lot of kindness and compassion to heal its battle wounds. Many of us have turned away from our own masculine in reaction to the negative aspects we see being played out by the masculine out in the world. The masculine within is suffering and needs compassion and kindness, not judgment and rejection.

Healing the masculine is a theme that begins for us this month and will continue into next year and probably into the next several years.

As you reject the masculine and what it represents, you also reject the positive aspects of generosity, protection, boundaries, action, focus and appropriate will. These positive aspects of the masculine are necessary if we are to be effective in the world. So the work starts at home with yourself in healing your own masculine, your relationship with the masculine and reconnecting with all the positive aspects so you can be whole. If you are whole, it will be easier to be of service where and when needed.

Remember that evolution only goes in one direction and that we are in the process of completing one cycle and transitioning into the next. Our task this month is to hold the bigger picture, to take the higher road of compassion, to practice kindness, and to do what we can to begin the process of healing the masculine beginning with ourselves.

YOU PERSONALLY

This month is all about helping yourself first.  If you don’t have compassion and kindness for yourself, you cannot possibly practice it for others. So start with yourself this month. Review all the ways you have judged yourself for not being good enough, smart enough, known better, ineffective, not successful enough, not strong enough, not brave enough, not powerful enough, not perfect enough, not useful enough, the list goes on and on.

How have you judged yourself for not showing up, for feeing fearful, for missing opportunities, for not getting your life together, for staying in bad situations for too long, for being weak, for being indecisive, for not setting good boundaries, for not protecting yourself or putting yourself first?

This lack of compassion and kindness for yourself will keep you mired in this lower vibration especially if it includes blame, anger and resentment. This is the month to turn all of this around. There is much work to do on the self. It is easy to be distracted with “what is going on out there” in terms of injustice, negative behaviors and bad choices. You cannot do anything about that. You cannot change what is “going on out there” but you can change what is going on in your own home and your own life.

So this is a month to focus on personal change through compassion and kindness and the healing of your own masculine. 

After reviewing all the ways you believe to have let yourself down, focus on the changes you wish to make. You might start with a simple commitment to set better boundaries or to speak up around your own truth or to make a plan of action to improve your life. It is also very important that you practice being in a higher vibration as much as you can. Beauty, wonder, awe, love, and of course compassion and kindness will always lead you to a higher vibration and a higher centered experience. After all this is a higher centered time when we have the opportunity to experience the lowest of the low and the highest of the high. You decide.

RELATIONSHIPS

Relationships with others take a back seat to the relationship you have with yourself. “Me first” is the motto this month. Of course your other relationships will all benefit from the work that you do on yourself. Relationships in general have been challenged lately and fraught with a lot of projection, blame and confusion. Larger scale issues are being worked out and relationships are taking the hit.

It is important to remember that there is so much work going on now at a personal level that everyone needs a bit of space. Especially as we enter into the agreed upon social holiday time, don’t be afraid to say no and to limit your social interactions if you are needing time to yourself.

Treat all your relationships with compassion and kindness.  This month kindness will go a long way to keep relationships from unnecessarily imploding. Give people room to grow, to change, to heal, to express their truth and to be creative in their own way. There is a lot of energy right now for change and it will be affecting some relationships. Stay out of fear and judgment and allow change if that is where the wind is blowing.

HEALTH AND THE PHYSICAL BODY

Compassion and Kindness, Compassion and Kindness, Compassion and Kindness. Our bodies have been through a lot and carried much for us. Mostly this month the body needs rest and rejuvenation. We don’t even know how exhausted we are. There has been so much work in the dreamtime collectively as our conscious personalities and bodies are “asleep”, that we don’t feel rested. We have been psychologically and psychically hypervigilant, holding a very big container for positive change and evolution and we are afraid to put it down. It is time to take a break and let what has been put into motion play itself out. The path is clear ahead of us and it is all about the personal healing we need to do on ourselves.

Health challenges this month could include fluctuations in energy levels with periods of great fatigue mixed with sleeplessness, physical agitation and restlessness. Knee and joint issues from the waist down are working out our masculine traits of moving forward and energetic mobility. Intermittent nausea and digestive issues are related to our will and the masculine energy of how we choose to show up in the world.

Take care of yourselves this month. You only have one body this lifetime and it deserves your kindness, compassion and love.

ENVIRONMENT

Being a very personally focused month, your personal environment is the most important thing on your “to do” list. You will experience a sense of power and accomplishment and purpose in changing or improving or fixing what is in your power to do. You cannot change what someone “out there” does or decides. But you can make changes and good choices and improvements to your own space and environment. When was the last time you took control of your personal environment, cleaned out the clutter and improved something that needing to be fixed?

Pace yourself this month both in your expectations as well as your physical output of energy in all the doing and fixing and changing you are inspired to do. Allow yourself to be guided by the environment you are in. If it is snowing outside, stay warm indoors if that is what your body wants. If it is sunny and warm, go out for a walk. If it is rainy or windy, honor the environment in the ways that it can support your own process of change, cleansing, or letting go of something. Practice working intimately with the environment instead of against it. This goes for all aspects of “environment”: physical, emotional, political, psychological, intellectual, global, personal and collective.

We are still in a highly creative period of time and although the creativity may seem to be very underground and hidden at this time, it may come out in the environment as weather anomalies, unexpected events, extreme temperatures and wild weather systems. Enjoy it!

BUSINESS/PARTNERSHIPS/PROJECTS

This is a good month to focus on the foundations of your business and projects. What was the inspiration behind your ideas, choices and action? Is there anything that needs to be revisited or changed or refined? Take and inventory of everything that is working and serving you best as well as what is not serving or needs to be changed or eliminated. This is about acknowledging what YOU need and how your personal business, partnerships and projects will serve YOU first.  Is your life task being supported?

As you inventory be careful not to judge or blame and remember that compassion and kindness goes a long way to healing what may not have been addressed that needs some clearing. It is a good month to tell the truth to others about what it truly important to you, and to tell the truth to yourself about what is not important to you that may be important to others.

There is great support for working on details, sealing up energy leaks and setting good boundaries. There is a fine line between functional community involvement on a project, and a dysfunctional free for all with no boundaries. I am reminded of the various experiments of the late 60’s with the communes, free love, and the break-down of social and economic boundaries. We are in a similar time but with hopefully more maturity and spiritual consciousness. These are indeed interesting times and it should be inspiring to all of us to think about the possibilities of what we can collectively create for our future.

December 1-7: It is a week of self-focus and taking care of the body, mind and spirit. The best use of this time is to keep your eye on the small goals you can easily accomplish as well as to practice being on that higher road of compassion whenever possible. Whether you are in the grocery store becoming irritated at the incompetency of the cashier or the confusion of the person in line in front of you, or witnessing an argument or inappropriate aggression among others, stay in the field of kindness and compassion. No one WANTS to be like that. But many are lost. If you can practice being in a higher state and a higher center, it will have a ripple effect.

Another good practice during this week is the “inner smile”.  If you heart can smile and you can radiate that smile outward, that is the inner smile. It is effective, can bring you joy and possibly even a desire to smile outwardly. And it will certainly support a higher vibration and a higher centered state.

December 8-15: This could be a week of confusion, depression, energetic ups and downs, one day feeling hopeful and good about your practices and the next day in despair about all the things you cannot change. The only way past these challenges is through. The only way to navigate is to acknowledge the feelings and then do your practices of compassion, kindness and taking care of yourself anyway despite how unmotivated you feel.

Keep your tasks small and doable. Set boundaries when appropriate and protect yourself from the conjectures, projections and negativity of others. This is a good week for one on one interactions that are meaningful and to make plans and set intentions about how you want to feel in your life in the future.

Even though the month is very much about you personally and much of the energy is focused within, there are times that support community. The powerful time around the Full Moon moves us into a more expansive picture of sharing our vision and prayers with others on the same page and compassion and kindness are the magnetic force that will bring people together for a common cause.

Don’t underestimate the power of prayer.

Spend some time today being inspired by your own life. Forget about what others are doing for a moment and focus on what you are doing and what you wish to do.  Are you true to yourself, your spiritual and moral compass, and your true desires? If not, why not?

Acknowledge all experiences as useful even if uncomfortable. For things happening in your life that are less than “great”, adopt the following attitude: “Do I like it? No. Does it feel good? Not really. Is it necessary? Probably.”

And most of all, have gratitude for all of it. After all, it is a great ride.

December 16-22: This is a time frame to work on relationship. Relationship with your body, with yourself, with your masculine, with your right work, your right action, with your unique personality and with your personal environment. Have you had enough gratitude for yourself and your life lately?

Stay close to home and pay attention to the details that may come up during this time that require your attention especially in the area of your personal environment. This is the time that supports fixing, changing, refining and improving what you can and have the power to do. Instead of worrying about what you can’t change, focus on what you can.

Mercury goes retrograde on the 19th to support even more focus on detail and clear communication. Set good boundaries around your time and energy and work on eradicating the habitual energy leaks that tend to surface around perceived obligations at this time of year.

December 21: Winter Solstice is Wednesday, December 21 at 3:44 AM. Solstice time is always a good reset and transition time. We move from the darkest time of the year (in the Northern Hemisphere) to the first day of bringing back the light. Especially this year, the significance of bringing in more light is palpable.

Honor this solstice by anchoring something you are transitioning into. It could be a new relationship, project, practice, or way of thinking. There is much that remains the same as we enter into a new cycle but what can change is the foundational patterns underlying all the judgments of the past. The way we see and perceive the world can be radically different if we allow it to be. This is the bigger picture that wants to seduce us to be more inspired, more creative and more hopeful. It is all possible.

December 23-31: The focus of this time is on clarity. Clarity of truth, clarity of what brings you joy, clarity of your direction, clarity of what needs to be complete and what needs your attention. This is a good time of year to make an inventory of anything that just does not feel right and decide what you are going to do about it. Watch for health issues around joints and bones during this time as the main “structures” supporting your body.

Part of your inventory should include an assessment of all the structures in your life and whether they are supporting you in ways that serve you or not. Structures are also containers and you might find that some have leaks, some are too small and some don’t hold together because they are just not meant to be. The categories are anything from relationships to work to study to personal environment to new projects, old projects, health support, where you get your knowledge and information and who you go to for any kind of support. When you find something lacking, instead of getting upset or self-judging about it, practice the compassion of the month and be kind to yourself and to others that you perceive to have “let you down”.

For September, ducks in a row.

September:  “TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS”.

It is a month of “getting your ducks in a row”, finishing projects, handling details, finally getting to what you have procrastinated, and making choices about what stays and what goes.

Mercury has gone retrograde for several weeks giving us a good container for the discipline and attention we need to stay focused on what is important. What supports us during this process is the opportunity to open our hearts to what is truly ours and to embrace our “business” from a place of acceptance and commitment instead of resistance.

There are a couple of subthemes and important influences we will be working with this month that are a necessary part of “taking care of business”. One is PROCRASTINATION. You know who you are, those of you who make a habit of procrastinating. Whatever the reasons behind your procrastination, it is time to “DO IT NOW” or eliminate it from your life completely. We advise making a sign of “DO IT NOW” and posting it somewhere where you are sure to see it all the time.

Because taking care of business this month includes tasks that you are way behind on, procrastination will be an influence to deal with. Procrastination holds a lot of energy. Whenever you procrastinate you spend way more energy worrying about, planning for and feeling bad, than the thing itself would take to do. People procrastinate for several reasons.

1. Fear. Fear of failure, fear of judgment or rejection, fear of success, of showing up and being seen, of inadequacy and ignorance. Usually this fear can be cured by reaching out for help and support.

2. Resistance. They just simply don’t want to do it. Either it is not theirs to do or they are in defiance towards the person or entity that has given them the task.  The cure is to get off the fence and either take responsibility and do it, or eliminate it from the “to do” list.

Whatever the reason for your procrastination, this is a good month to eliminate it and to take care of the important things you have been putting off. (there is help here on our monthly audio)

Another theme we are working with this month is the theme of RESPONSIBILITY. What business is yours to take care of and what business really belongs to someone else?  We recently did a workshop called “getting your ducks in a row” which is very much the discovery about what the business is that you need to take care of. The discovery also includes what ducks are in your row that are not yours and eliminating the habit of taking care of other people’s ducks. It’s also important to acknowledge where you have been handing your ducks over to someone else and not taking responsibility for them such as your health and your personal happiness and well-being. So tell the truth, forgive yourself and others and get your own ducks in a row.

So what Business are we talking about that you may need to take care of?

It can be anything from dealing with your taxes to fixing a crack in the wall or getting some overdue acupuncture, or starting that meditation practice you have been talking about for months, or finally losing the extra 10 pounds you have been carrying around, or dealing with a communication you have been putting off, or making a change in your life that you know is necessary. It also includes getting rid of old clutter that holds energy, reconfiguring your personal environment to better support you, finishing what can be completed and handling all the details that come your way in a timely and focused fashion.

Remember that clutter holds energy in a way that can keep you from moving forward. You may never suspect that those boxes of old photographs, or unfinished projects from years ago, or papers and correspondence from the distant past can be interfering with your ability to create something new. Even if they are not physically in your immediate environment, they are still extensions of yourself and part of your “business”. Letting go of these attachments will free you up for something new. (there is help with this on the monthly audio)

The key is to tackle your “business” with an open heart, and with enthusiasm and inspiration rather than dread. Don’t go at it alone. The collaboration theme of last month continues with the opportunity to always ask for help, making “taking care of business” potentially fun and communal. This is a time where a shift in consciousness is being supported by planetary influences. Taking care of our business and getting our ducks in a row will insure that we move into this new consciousness without old baggage.

Power Path

☆☆•*¨*•.¸¸☆☆

‘A New Moon is always a good time to reset and refine intentions and when it is accompanied by an eclipse it carries even more power. We are moving into a time of consolidating and collecting our energies for what’s to come and this New Moon is a great time to review where you have been and where you wish to go.

The most important thing is to know what you want. If you don’t know what you want, at least tell the truth about what you don’t want. Eliminate what does not work, what no longer fits, and open the possibilities for something new to become clear and begin to emerge.

The first few days of September will be a great time to go within and to make some inner decisions and personal commitments that will put certain things into action for you in the future. It is a time to set things up in the right way, realign your goals to match your heart’s desires, get the support you need, and make a plan.’

Blessings! ☆☆•*¨*•.¸¸

The Power Path:

Once every 30+ years, the Summer Solstice (Northern Hemisphere) or Winter Solstice (Southern Hemisphere) and Full Moon fall on the same day. This is a rare and powerful event and should be well honored. The Full Moon is at 5:02 AM MDT (Mountain Daylight Time) and brightest the night of the 19th. The Solstice is at 4:34 PM MDT. Take advantage of this powerful energy and celebrate something in your life that you have accomplished. It could be a completion, a decision, a project, a commitment, a new beginning or the achievement of some goal. This is also a social time for gatherings, community events and cooperative participation. Make sure that during this time you stay focused on the positive, on the doors that are opening, and on the potential, instead of dwelling on any fear, resistance, judgment or negativity.  What you put your energy and focus on will grow in this fertile time so make sure it is what you want. Allow yourself to be supported by your community and your friends and be willing to receive all the positive energy that is available to you at this time.

The Solstice is always a good time to honor the Sun and the life giving energy it makes available to us on this planet. Any ceremony honoring the sun or the spirit of fire is appropriate. Release something you are leaving behind. Welcome something in that is new, fertile and rich with possibilities. Happy Solstice!

Spring.

Spring-equinox

Power Path

‘Spring Equinox is Saturday, March 19 at 10:30PM Mountain Daylight Time. (MDT) Honor this transition by completing something that needs it and by consciously intending for the birth of something new. What wants to be fired up right now? What needs a bit more power? What are you finished with?

 

This is a potent time between two powerful eclipses and what you focus on around this Equinox time will carry great power into the future. Even if it is just an idea or a decision that you commit to following through with, take the time to explore it and give it some attention. This is also a good time to try something new, do something out of your comfort zone and stretch your container a little bit.

 

Acknowledge this time as well as your own process with a ceremony using the elements of fire, water, air and earth. If you are releasing something, burn or bury it. Work with breath and water to bless and bring in something new.’

“(There) are enormously complex questions and there are no simple answers. However the more we know about soul age and people’s needs at the different stages of development the better we can serve their needs and support good decision making that will provide for each in turn.

…we find ourselves in world where discoveries are being made fast and furiously to the degree that our entire view of history and what has happened on this planet is being called into question in a serious way. This is further undermining a sense of stability for so many people. Populations are shifting, political parties are unpredictable, economies are on the move, and technologies are changing our lives faster than at any time before.” 

Connecting through meditation and prayer…

6-6:30 PM (MST)

NEPAL EARTHQUAKE PRAYERS/JOIN US TONIGHT

The recent devastating Earthquake and continuing aftershocks in Nepal and Everest region has killed thousands of people and injured scores more. In addition it has ungrounded hundreds of thousands of people that are severely affected by the quake aftermath. Many have lost family members, friends, neighbors and perhaps their own homes and businesses. In other words the event is a major “susto,” a trauma of huge proportions. Not only has the earthquake traumatized local residents but it has had an impact on people all over the world. As in many earthquakes of this size and force, there may be another earthquake on the other side of one of the tectonic plates. 

When an event like this takes place many people often feel helpless and wonder what they can do to help. We suggest there is much that can be done on an energetic level to help. Using basic shamanic techniques we can support those whose lives have been so seriously disrupted. We are not suggesting that this is a substitute for much needed food and survival materials but adjunctive to help calm the survivors and everyone affected by this event.

Tonight between 6PM and 6:30PM Mountain Daylight US Time (12:00 midnight Greenwich mean time) we will be conducting a short ceremony in our medicine wheel for all the people who need some support right now. We welcome all of you who can, wherever you happen to be or live, to join us for the whole or a part of this time to focus on that region of the world and visualize a huge grounding cord like an anchor underneath the Himalayas and surrounding regions steadying the region and bringing back stability. With love and compassion visualize calm returning to the region and people resuming productive and effective activities to rebuild their lives. In addition we will be focusing on giving those souls who have taken this time to pass on, freedom and light to help in their transition. In the process you can also reset your own grounding as events like these always create a shift.

If you have a drum, you can drum along, if you have a rattle, use the rattle. You can also light a candle, some sage or just simply pray.

As devastating as these natural events are, they are also a part of the larger architecture of global change. It is not easy or necessary to understand them fully, but helpful to accept them and to do what we can to move towards balance and healing.

Blessings,
Jose and Lena
