The Cosmic Story: Virgo New Moon 2014 (1 comments)
The light is waning, the harvests need to be taken in. We are entering the sign of Virgo, the Virgin. the ancient meaning of 'virgin' meant a woman who did not belong to a man--a free woman, not a sexually inactive one. As the world continues to fall into the chaos that needs to proceed new life, the Goddess of Wisdom is available to us. The goddess who best typifies Virgo is the Virgin Mary. See what she has to teach us.

The Cosmic Story: Aquarius Full Moon 2014 (1 comments)
Summer is slipping by really fast. While Leo is the sign ruled by the Sun, it is also the sign when our sunlight begins to loose its power here in the northern hemisphere. This Sunday's Full Moon reminds us that while each of us has an inner light that wants to shine out, we will be more empowered if we share our light and shine out together. We can be more creative together, so share your ideas and plans and shine on!

The Cosmic Story: Leo New Moon 2014 (1 comments)
We are both solar and lunar creatures. After a year traveling through the watery sign of Cancer, the big planet Jupiter has moved on into the sign of Leo, the King. This next year is a time to bring your creative vision into the world, hopefully for the betterment of the world. This Saturday's Leo New Moon includes Jupiter's energy. It's a great time to seed a new creative vision. We need a better vision of the future.

The Cosmic Story: Capricorn Full Moon 2014 (1 comments)
This summer's energies are intense all over the world. Change is coming, but the old will not 'go gently into the night'. So that means each of us has to let the old patterns die within us so we can show others what they could be. The trouble progressives have is that we don't get out the story of what the world will look like once we've changed. It's time to BE the new story. People learn by example.

The Cosmic Story: Cancer New Moon 2014 (2 comments)
We're entering the 'lazy days of summer' now with the Sun in the sign of Cancer. It's a water sign, so head to your nearest beach and remember what it felt like to float through life in the womb, safe and secure. The Cancer New Moon takes us back to that womb so we can rebirth our emotional body for the coming year.
The Cosmic Story: Sagittarius Full Moon 2014 (4 comments)
June's full Moon occurs in the sign of Sagittarius--the truth-speaker and truth-seeker. What is the truth of our times? How can we begin to think differently about where our future lies? We need new categories and new ideas about what is possible. This full Moon can be a doorway to a new way of thinking, that includes listening to the heart.

The Gemini New Moon, May 28, 2014
We enter the quickening time of year, as spring turns into summer. Mercury is our guide--the traveler, the guide. it's all about new possibilities, new experiences, new insights. The New Moon in Gemini is always a time to plant new seeds for the Mind. This year, after April's cosmic cross and the 5th Uranus/Pluto square, it's time to balance the brain and start using the Unitive Mind.

The Cosmic Story: Scorpio Full Moon 2014 (3 comments)
This week's Scorpio Full Moon exemplifies the cosmic laws of life--that life and death are intimately bound to each other. Patriarchy hates to admit that things have to die so new life can be born. That's what we're seeing now on the political landscape--the death-throes of patriarchy. The old guard refuses to die a graceful death and it's going down kicking and screaming. But it's on its way out. Believe it!

The Cosmic Story: Taurus Solar Eclipse, 2014 (5 comments)
It's fascinating to watch what's happening on the world stage and then compare it to what's going on in the heavens. Patriarchy rejects the notion that we are energetically connected to the Earth, the cosmos and each other. This Taurus New Moon is a solar eclipse; It starts a new story about our relationship with the Earth. Learn to see deeply--through symbol and metaphor--and listen to what the Earth has to tell you.

The Cosmic Story: Libra Lunar Eclipse 2014 (5 comments)
The first of 4 total lunar eclipses occurs next Tuesday night/Wednesday morning and we can see it in the Western Hemisphere. So don't miss this chance to see a natural wonder. Coming right before the perfecting of the cardinal grand cross, it highlights a shift from self to other. This is going to be an amazing week celestially, so if things get crazy, don't forget to ground and center.

The Cosmic Story: April 2014's Cosmic Cross and America's Challenge (15 comments)
Four Powers are coming to the cosmic table this month.Along with next week's Lunar Eclipse, this cosmic cross signals a big change, one that is so necessary for our future. America is at the center of these changes, because they 'hit' America's 4th of July birth chart. Americans have to look at our mythic story and realize how far we've come from living our ideals.It's time for a new revolution--we're the ones called to do it.

The Cosmic Story: Aries New Moon 2014 (2 comments)
The Aries New Moon really marks the beginning of the astrological year. And this New Moon is potent! It falls within the web of the Pluto/Uranus square that is turning into a cardinal grand cross this month--a cosmic call for change. And it especially affects America's 4th of July chart, landing on the chart's Sun and Saturn. We have to change the way we see ourselves. Let's hope we do it peacefully.
The Cosmic Story: Virgo Full Moon 2014 (3 comments)
We've come to the last Full Moon of the astrological year. When the Sun is in Pisces, we let go of our sense of the past year, dissolving back into the ocean of collective consciousness so we can get back to our essence. We do that with the Virgo Full Moon, which asks us to belong only to ourselves. It's time to ask some questions about who we are and what we're here on Earth this lifetime to do. So dream on!

The Cosmic Story: Pisces New Moon 2014 (2 comments)
Friday's dreamy New Moon in Pisces might be confusing, especially since Mercury goes direct hours before the New Moon and Mars goes retrograde the next morning. Shifting energies means nothing is as it seems. So go with the flow (a very Piscean thing to do) and see where you end up. That's hard on our patriarchal consciousness, but too bad. That's life!

Living the Symbolic Life: The Pisces Challenge (4 comments)
Living a symbol life meaning diving deep into life, seeing the spiritual purpose of why we're alive. It goes against the grain of our society, but it's what is needed to change the world. When we see the spirit in life it takes us beyond what we consume and own and into the realm of why we're here and what we are responsible for.

The Cosmic Story: Leo Full Moon 2014 (3 comments)
The Leo Full Moon occurs on February 14th, Valentine's Day. A full Moon makes us aware of something, and this full Moon wants to make us aware of how we can unite with others as individuals, share our creativity and envision of new world. To do this, we have to stop holding onto old relationship patterns that keep us isolated, afraid and unconscious. We do this by engaging with the archetypal patterns that make us human.

Living the Symbol Life: The Archetype of Wholeness (16 comments)
Living a symbolic life entails living in the imagination rather than in the collective story--which is pretty much one-dimensional. The Archetype of wholeness in an individual becomes the archetype of Community in the collective. And the most powerful image we have for that unity is the photograph of 'Earthrise' -- our first look at our planet from the Moon. That image speaks to the heart of our unity.

Living the Symbolic Life: The World Needs a New Story (15 comments)
Carl Jung said that we badly need to live the symbolic life, a life of meaning. We do that when we engage in the stories we believe in. We have the chance now to change those patriarchal stories and give birth to new ones. The archetypal patterns of life are in need of renewal, and we are the only ones capable of changing this patriarchal story of death into one of new life. Are you ready to begin?

The 2nd New Moon of the Month is also a celebration of the New Year--this time the Chinese New Year of the Wood Horse. The Cosmic Story offers us a chance to look at our society and find like-minded people to work with to change the world. As we contemplate the future this month--a very Aquarian thing to do--decide what you want to do and then go find like-minded people to do it with. We are preparing for a big April!

The Cosmic Story: Cancer Full Moon, 2014 (2 comments)
Believe it or not, the Cosmos is with us! The stories in the heavens are pretty similar to the stories that are playing out here on Earth. And why not? If the physicists are right, we're all One in the dance of energy. This week's Full Moon in Cancer makes us aware of what we need to feel nurtured, to feel happy. Doesn't the Declaration of Independence promise us, 'life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness'?

The Cosmic Story: Capricorn New Moon, January 1, 2014 (3 comments)
The New Year begins with an auspicious New Moon, one linked with Pluto, the archetypal god of the Underworld. Pluto in Capricorn has been uncovering financial and leadership dead-weight, and it's time we take responsibility for what our capitalistic system has created. We have to make mature decisions not only about our individual lives, but about our cultural life as well. It's time for us to become heroes/heras.

We find ourselves at the darkest time of the year here in the North. That's the time to look for our inner Light. And we'll need it, because this holiday season is the gateway to the intense configuration that will take place in late April. Prepare yourselves! Practice those values and virtues you'd like to see in the world. Peace, love, compassion and community are a good place to start.

The Cosmic Story: Sagittarius New Moon 2013 (5 comments)
As the Sun emerges from the turbulent waters of Scorpio, we step into the fires of Sagittarius. The lessons that haunted us in Scorpio must now be forged in the fires of Sagittarius into arrows that lead us to our future. New knowledge needs new perspectives. We have to prepare ourselves with a new vision, because all of us are called to create a better future than patriarchy has planned for us. The key ingredient is belief!

We've just been through an emotional tsunami of energies this past month and everyone needs to recover their balance. What better way than to realize that the seasons bring us different gifts. This is the season of Death, when we can let down our hair, put up our feet and finally relax. That's what this season is all about--the fallow time of year when everything in Nature rests. Including us!

The Cosmic Story: Scorpio New Moon Solar Eclipse 2013 (1 comments)
The energy this week is intense. With Friday's 4th square between Pluto and Uranus, expect more revelations and breakdowns in government and finance. Personally, it's a time to let go of old paradigms and step into new realities, new stories. A solar eclipse signals a new start. In Scorpio, it's about finding new ways to relate to each other from the truth of our being, rather than the mask. And Happy Samhain--All Hallows.

Lunar Eclipses mark the culmination of something started 19 years ago. 1994--NAFTA,LA earthquake, Rwanda genocide, Mandela elected,Republicans take both houses. What was happening in your life? Doubt astrology all you want--we live in cycles and what goes around comes around! First work on your relationships, then we'll work on transformation at the Scorpio Solar Eclipse in 2 weeks.

Emerging Archetypal Themes: The Scales of Libra and the Ancient Celts: Relationships for Grown-Ups. (1 comments)
Don't you think we need to look at our beliefs about marriage and romantic love and let go of the patriarchal view of monogamous relationships, whether gay or straight? If we want to see an example of how to conduct grown-up relationships, we have to go back about 3,000 years to the Celts. Their Brehon Laws recognized 10 different types of marriages, as well as legitimizing lovers. What do you think?

As we enter Fall in the northern hemisphere, we enter into the darkness of Winter, when we band together to survive. We are in a symbolic Winter, where we have to brave the dark to rediscover the light in the world. It's time to balance our own needs with the needs of everyone else. Libra can teach us how to be not only balanced, but also fair!

The Cosmic Story: Pisces Harvest Moon & Autumn Equinox 2013 (3 comments)
Sometimes we have to step back so we can see where we've come from. At the Harvest Moon and Autumn Equinox, it's good to recognize what we've harvested this year--who we have become. We live in a matrix of cosmic revolution and evolution, where we now have to define what we value--especially how we value our work and money. It's time to start the EVOLUTION!

As summer winds down, we are called to look at what we've harvested this year. As a country, America still wants to go to war. No harvest there except death. But what have each one of us harvested this year? Have we done something for the good of our country, of each other, of the world? How have we contributed our talents to creating a more peaceful, just world? Bring in your harvest and rejoice at what you've achieved.

The planets continue on their courses. The Sun and Moon dance to the rhythms of life. We here on Earth are part of that dance, whether we want to believe it or not. A revolution is building around the world, a revolution of peace and greater self-awareness and responsibility. We are in labor with the future. Let's not lose hope just because things are painful. Our hope is that we all go through this necessary transformation.

Anytime Leo comes into the picture, we know we're dealing with a sense of self-confidence, or the lack of it. Drama is one way to handle Leo energy. Playful responsibility is another. It's time to build a bonfire on the beach and chill out to the rhythm of the ocean waves, thanks to the continuing Water Trine. 'The universe turns differently when fire loves water.'

The energy of change is in full swing. The old order is fighting back hard--which was expected--but now people are realizing how much work we have to do to change the world. And we will do it--never doubt it. By next year, America will rise up. We'll discuss this in future Cosmic Story newsletters. For now, personal change and healing are the goals. Shake off the patriarchy within so we can bring down the patriarchy outside

The July Cosmic Story 2013
July is going to be an interesting month astrologically. A beautiful and peaceful grand water trine combines with the feisty on-going Uranus/Pluto square to heal our wounds as we battle to bring a new vision to our society. The Cancer New Moon becomes part of the revolutionary and game-changing square, while the 1st of two Aquarian Full Moons reminds us that we don't have to do it alone.

The Cosmic Story: Mercury Retrograde and July's Grand Water Trine (1 comments)
This summer holds blessings and challenges for all of us. Look at our world. If we don't stop it now, corporations will continue to control our politics, our environment and our financial system. So while we each have a responsibility to stand up for a different kind of world, we also need to relax and enjoy ourselves. This next month is a good time to do both.

During the summer months, I'm combining the New & Full Moon Cosmic Story into one article. So here are some of the cosmic happenings for June 2013. It's a time to change our thoughts and open up to our intuition and feeling. We will be dealing with the ongoing energies of the Uranus/Pluto square, the 60's energy of rebellion and rebirth. The Cosmic Story is meant to inspire us to hope, to imagine and to create anew.

The Cosmic Story: Sagittarius Lunar Eclipse, May 24-25, 2013 (8 comments)
After the trauma of Monday's 3rd Uranus/Pluto square, this Friday's Sagittarius Full Moon Eclipse can help you let go of your old mindset--old categories are no longer viable. We all need a Mind shakeup, because we are no longer living the world we've been taught to expect. It's time to hone our left-brain logic and open to our right-brain imagination if we want to get through our cultural transformation.

The Cosmic Story: 3rd Uranus/Pluto Square--May 20, 2013 (6 comments)
Since the 60s, we have been traveling down the road of evolution and revolution. Hopefully we are heading toward greater compassion and enlightenment. The 3rd square between the planets that brought us the 60s is upon us. To make lasting changes in our society, we have to see and acknowledge the corruption of our corporate governments (Pluto in Capricorn) and then be brave enough to take a stand for change (Uranus in Aries).

The 2nd of 3 eclipses is a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Taurus. Solar eclipses indicate a propitious time for new beginnings. Taurus is all about what we value and what we build. 'If you build it, they will come.' The question is, what's worth building? Once you know that, put your back into it!

The sky this next month is very active. We're gong to have a third--extra--eclipse and the third Uranus/Pluto square by the end of May. We have to step up our political action and our personal responsibility. This lunar eclipse in Taurus/Scorpio offers us a chance to release our dependence on 'things' and place more faith in each other. It's time to really look at our values and live them. Taurus says, 'if you build it. . .

The Cosmic Story: Aries New Moon 2013: A New Birth (2 comments)
Saturday's conjunction of Venus & Mars with the Sun tells us it's time to become conscious of what we love and how we desire it. Wednesday's New Moon in Aries is the last of the beginning of the 2013 New Year. Who are you? Who do you want to be? It's time to look at yourself and decide. Are you a bit player in someone's B movie or are you the character who carries the story to its successful completion. Aries always leads.

Emerging Archetypal Themes: Aries, The Male Hero & Oz, The Great and Powerful (4 comments)
Believe it or not, Oz, the Great and Powerful is both fun and meaningful. Now if you men would only go see it and discover how the negative mother complex works in you to distort your feeling life, leaving you open to the witch within you. So many stories about witches are really about the feminine side of men in patriarchy. Women's witches are often good, like Glinda. Our negative father complex is what screws us up!

This Libra Full Moon, the first full Moon of the Spring, has always been considered sacred. It marks sacred holidays, and along with Spring Equinox and next month's Aries New Moon,it marks the real beginning of 2013. This full Moon week has plenty of disruptive energy -- or if used properly, lots of energy for rebirth. Just as Spring is symbolized by the Dawn, so too, this full Moon marks a new beginning to the year.

With Pisces, we've come to the end of a long cycle. We're at the end of the Piscean Age, and isn't it interesting that the ultimate Piscean institution is in turmoil. We're also at the astrological end of 2012. This last New Moon is extra powerful, so choose wisely which seeds you want to plant. The resulting fruit that grows will indicate what your future holds. Make a wish in the next few days, as the old world slips away.

Each year on the Aquarius New Moon we also celebrate Chinese New Year. This year is the Year of the Water Snake, a time to shed some emotional skin. This Aquarius New Moon is a good time to plant new seeds for greater cooperation, independence and vision. To really do it right, we need to shed those skins!

The Cosmic Story: Leo Full Moon 2013
The Cosmic Story is telling us to get down to business now with like-minded people. But don't forget the fun and creativity. Leo wants our political action to be both articulate and artistic. Participate in political rallies but don't forget the ART to get new people involved. Serious Fun is on the schedule for this full Moon.

Yes, we're still here after December 21, 2012! Who doubted it? This first new Moon of 2013 asks us to meditate on how we'll rebuild our culture. Who will step forward and shoulder the responsibility to create community, foster honesty in politics, save our environment, generate jobs, creativity and innovation. Don't look to the government to do it - it's up to each one of us. Role up your sleeves and let's get to work.

A Reply to Those Who Believe That Guns Will Protect Us. (33 comments)
The fallacy of thinking that we will lose our freedom if we can't own guns comes from the paranoid patriarchal fear of life. Why are Americans so afraid that we need guns to protect ourselves? Could it be that we're all cowards?

The End of the Mayan Calendar: A New Beginning (12 comments)
Tthe end of this Mayan Calendar on December 21, 2012 is not about the end of the world but about the simultaneous ending of all these calendars. They all turn over at once and come back to zero. For the Maya, the cosmic clock is reset. It's time to set the world in order again. And then time moves forward again. But now it's a new time, a new beginning. Perhaps even a new creation.

Winter Solstice, December 21, 2012
This Winter Solstice is astrologically special because of the planetary energies involved. Winter begins when the Sun enters Capricorn. This year, the Solstice Sun is close to Pluto in Capricorn, acknowledging the necessity of evolutionary change in our consciousness (the Sun). Pluto and his wrecking crew are sweeping through the old ruling structures of our world, laying bare the rot and corruption if patriarchy.

Sagittarius is a mutable sign, meaning it can take many forms. The horse-person defines the personality which can ride its instinctive nature consciously and move quickly into the future. But like the arrow which is the symbol of Sagittarius, this energy wants to know which direction to head in.

This lunar eclipse offers us a chance to look at our old beliefs, old paradigms and old inner stories and see how small they've become for who we are now. This eclipse can mark an end to indecision, since Gemini can be the most indecisive sign of the zodiac because everything is so interesting.

Next Tuesday's Scorpio New Moon is a solar eclipse, marking an ending and a new beginning for us all. As you may have noticed, cosmic law dictates that we renew ourselves at different times, for change is the only constant in our marvelous Universe. We renew ourselves each month at the new Moon and we also renew ourselves yearly at the 15*Scorpio power gate around Samhain or All Hallows' Eve.

With this full Moon so close to All Hallows Eve, the veils between the worlds will be very thin. Remember your ancestors and those beloveds who have passed beyond the veils this year. Remember, honor, and recognize what values and talents they lived by. Somewhere within you, you have those same traits. What have you done with them? Will you honor the departed by tending those inherited values and talents?

When we actually see how others react to us and adjust ourselves according to what we both want to create in the moment, we dance our relationships.

The energies leading up to this full Moon have been intense. With the 2nd Uranus/Pluto square last week, we've really entered a time of radical re-alignment and re-structuring of our personal habits and our collective enterprises. With the Sun moving into Libra on Saturday, September 22 at 7:49am PDT/10:49 am EDT, our collective attention (Sun) turns toward partnerships (Libra), as we develop a new paradigm.

Virgo's lessons and initiation involved alchemy, the union of opposing energies and the transformation of those energies through self-knowledge into a new sense of wholeness.Virgo is the sign where we work to perfect ourselves, not by being perfect but by coming to understand how we see ourselves, what we value, how we process life, what our emotional body feels like and where our creative impulse li
