Wednesday, August 17, 2016 The Cosmic Story: Aquarius/Leo Full Moon 2016
This Leo/Aquarius Full Moon starts off this fall's eclipse season. Not quite an eclipse--just touching the edge of Earth's shadow, it still packs strong energy. Leo is all about the Heart while Aquarius shows us the Higher Mind--or the collective mindset. This Full Moon offers us a choice--open to the Higher Mind or stay down in the gutter with our collective consciousness. Your choice.

Captain Fantastic: Living, Breathing Truth
'Captain Fantastic' is an intelligent, quirky, compassionate look at Truth and how we live our truth. The 6 children and Viggo Mortensen are totally believable as a family living out the father's philosophy and truths. It's a story about Truth and the need to temper it with Wisdom.
Go see this movie!

The Cosmic Story: Leo New Moon, August 2, 2016
This year's Leo New Moon falls on the old Celtic festival of Lammas or Lughnashadh, the first harvest celebration. Since Leos love celebrating and having fun, don't forget to celebrate what you've accomplished this year. If you've done something new--like getting involved in a political campaign--give yourself a pat on the back. Leo wants us to express ourselves--to others and the world.

The Cosmic Story; Capricorn Full Moon 2016
What kind of world are we envisioning? We know what we don't want--the corporate New World Order--but do we know what we want the Future to look like? That's what we need to envision on this Full Moon in Capricorn, the sign of our collective structures--fiance, government, society. Spend time on your vision, and don't forget to include family and friend time.

The Cosmic Story: Cancer New Moon, July 4, 2016
The Cancer New Moon falls on the 4th of July. Since a New Moon is like a new birth, perhaps we can collectively birth a new emotional body in the United States. One that is aligned with our myths. Right now, we are not 'the land of the free and the home of the brave', despite how our elected officials call us exceptional. We, the people, have to take responsibility for the state of our world. Time to grow up and evolve.

The Cosmic Story: 2nd Sagittarius Full Moon, June 20 2016
This second Sagittarius Full Moon occurs hours before the Summer Solstice. This Gateway of the Year is the marriage of Heaven and Earth, when life is in alignment with Spirit. The Full Moon concerns how we think about the world and what we believe. It's time to examine our beliefs and decide if they support our life or diminish it. We all deserve an abundant life full of love, purpose, creativity and community. And freedom!

The Cosmic Story: Gemini New Moon; June 4, 2106
To create a new life, you have to have a New Mind. That's what this important Gemini New Moon wants us to create. It neatly fits into this year's powerful planetary alignment--the T-Square between Neptune, Saturn and Jupiter. These archetypal energies deal with beliefs, faith, imagination and expansion. It's time we expanded our sense of the possible. If we do, even Bernie can will the nomination!

The Cosmic Story: The Sagittarius Gemini Full Moon
We are entering the zone of the Mind, and the Cosmos really wants us to pay attention, since there are two Full Moons in the signs of Gemini and Sagittarius this year. We have to decide what we believe. This world of ours needs us to stand up to the truth of what is happening in the world. So it's important to know what you believe and make up your mind to believe in the Future rather than the past.It's time to free your Mind!
Thursday, May 5, 2016 The Cosmic Story: Taurus New Moon 2016
Friday's New Moon in Taurus highlights the power of Nature--Mother Earth's nature and our own nature.
Taurus wants us to acknowledge what we value--not in terms of money (although that's the most simplistic form of value) but in terms of our value system. Do we value honor, love, beauty, peace, etc.
It's time to honor the Earth by remembering our creation stories.

The Cosmic Story: Scorpio Full Moon, April 21-22, 2016
This Earth Day will be lit up by the Taurus/Scorpio Full Moon. The Sun in Taurus is all about Nature and our human nature. We have been sold the lie that humans are separate from Mother Earth and that She is only dead matter. And look where that's gotten us! Today we remember our Mother, our Home, our true nature--that we are part of Mother Earth's ecosystem. Let's start taking care of our home.

The Cosmic Story: Aries New Moon 2016: And so it begins.
The Sign of Aries is considered the first sign of the zodiac and it brings in Spring in the northern hemisphere. With this Aries New Moon, we have the another beginning--an interior lunar beginning of our new story. Since each of us is a story waiting to unfold,you'll find a few stories here about the Aries quest--the quest for Identity. I hope you enjoy the stories, because sometimes we need stories more than we need food!
Monday, March 21, 2016 The Cosmic Story: Libra Lunar Eclipse, March 23, 2016
Spring Equinox is the beginning of the astrological new year. With this eclipse occurring so close to the moment of balance,our cosmos is sending us energy to make big changes in our lives and our world. Lunar eclipses usually disrupt old energy patterns. It's time to let go of the past and live our new Story. The past was how we learned. Now we have the chance to Make our own story. To ReBirth! Happy Spring.

The Cosmic Story: Pisces Solar Eclipse, March 8-9, 2016
We're entering Eclipse season--there are 4-5 eclipses each year, signaling either important beginnings and endings that shift energy and create a matrix for change. This Pisces New Moon eclipse takes us into the Dreaming Mind--the creative imagination that has been colonized by our patriarchal media. This is the perfect time to pay attention to your dreams, visions and reveries. It's time to reclaim our power--our soul.

The Cosmic Story: Pisces/Virgo Full Moon 2016 Incarnating the Spirit Living in Your Imagination
As we go through these transformative times, we have to descend into chaos if we really want to birth something new. Otherwise all we do is shore up the old and patch it up. We have to die to be reborn again. And our cultural institutions need to die so we can have the revolution that the 60s promised us. The heavens are telling us--evolution happens. Now for the revolution.

My Response to Hillary Supporters when they want to know why I'm Caucusing for Bernie.
I was walking the other day, thinking about what I want to say to Hillary's supporter at the Nevada caucus on Saturday. Here's what I threw into the cauldron--psychology, astrology, mythology and my beliefs about this time in our history. Like the new Star Wars story, the old hippies have come back to help our hippie children save the day.

The Cosmic Story: Aquarius New Moon 2016 The New World Arising
We've reached the first power-gate of the year and the light is growing.It's time to envision what you want your life to look like in the coming year. Don't forget to add Freedom, Originality and Purpose to that picture.Just as we're seeing the great divide between Americans on the politically conservative Right and the future-oriented progressives on the Left stand up for their beliefs, it's time to stand up for our beliefs.

The Cosmic Story: Leo Full Moon, January 23-24, 2016 Time to Light Our Fire
Can there be any doubt that we are being called to service? Our revolution has to be peaceful, attuned to the greater good, which means we all have to participate in our society. Give your leadership, creativity, healing abilities and your commitment to bringing your unique insight and perspective to bear on personal, family, community, country and world issues. It's time to stop complaining about things and go do it ourselves

The Cosmic Story: Capricorn New Moon 2016
As we welcome in 2016, the cosmic energies are all about change. Back in the 60s, change came after the conjunction of Pluto and Uranus, and we can look forward to more changes now that we're done with the 7 squares between these two planets of evolution and revolution. We've been challenged to take up our responsibilities to the world and that means changing ourselves too. This New Moon, plant the seeds of change!Bring it on!

The Cosmic Story: Cancer Full Moon 2015 Christmas Gifts and Surprises
Winter Solstice and Christmas celebrate the return of the Light during the darkest time of year. We light up our Christmas tree to invoke the Light to return while we decorate the tree with our hopes for the new year. 2015 has been an intense year,a turning point, a year when we had to face our collective shadows--not just foreign terrorists but our own violence and prejudice. May our hopes for a better world become reality.

The Cosmic Story: Sagittarius New Moon 2015
The month of Sagittarius is when the northern hemisphere is at its darkest. As we sink to the depths of the Dark, our hope is that we will find the Light shining there in all its splendor. This has always been a time of faith--faith that light and warmth and life would go on. In these dark times, hold a vision of peace on earth because the Mothers will it so.

The Cosmic Story: Gemini Full Moon 2015: The Mind, Truth and Reclaiming the Imagination
With this strong Gemini Full Moon and its challenging square to Neptune in Pisces, we have to re-align our mind with primal truth. This square can seem to dissolve our reality but it offers us a chance to see a deeper reality. At this Full Moon, our Gemini minds want to play with possibilities. Our Sagittarius soul wants to find meaning and purpose. When the two unite, the possibility of finding Wisdom is profound.

The Cosmic Story: Scorpio New Moon, 11/11/2015
We are entering the dark time of year in the northern hemisphere. It's time to let go of what no longer serves life. We have to learn to face Death and release those behaviors and habits, feelings and beliefs that keep us stuck. It's the time of year to face the Shadow. Scorpio's energy is geared toward facing those unconscious feelings and beliefs. What's holding you back from a fuller life? It's time to face it.

The Cosmic Story: Taurus Full Moon, October 27, 2015
The Wheel of the Year is turning, and now we enter the darkest time of year here in the northern hemisphere. We celebrate the death of the year on Samhain or Halloween. This week's Taurus Full Moon takes up that theme, of conserving the fundamental things in life and letting go of what no longer serves our life. It's all about changing our relationships and balancing the masculine and feminine energies of life.

The Cosmic Story: Aries Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse, September 27-28, 2015
This month's Aries Full Moon is very powerful, so don't be surprised by the surprises that come your way. It's the Harvest Moon, the Full Moon closest to the Autumn Equinox, the 4th consecutive Blood Moon total lunar eclipse in the last two years, and the second and most powerful Super Moon this year, when the Moon comes the closest to Earth in its elliptical orbit--as well as closely aligning with the Lunar Nodes.

The Cosmic Story: Virgo New Moon Eclipse 2015
We're entered eclipse season, which occurs twice a year.The Moon's nodes are now in the early degrees of Libra (North Node) and Aries (South Node). These points in space indicate where the planes of Earth, Sun and Moon intersect. The old way (Aries) is to do everything ourselves--the old idea of 'rugged individualism'. The new way (Libra) sees that it's all about 'us'. It's about how we need each other to thrive. Change now.

The Cosmic Story: Pisces Full Moon 2015
This is the time of Harvest, as we look to see what we've created this year. What have we done with our time, our talents and our love? What have we nurtured and what do we have to nurture others with? At harvest time, what we've sown will be what we reap. Hopefully, we've worked hard to make something of ourselves. Using our creativity to change the world is important now. We have to contribute ourselves to the future.

The Cosmic Story: Leo New Moon 2015
Just as the Sun is at the center of our solar system and the heart is the center of our body, Leo is the sign where we center ourselves in our truth. Leo is about creative expression, our ability to combine the divine mind of Heaven with the fruitfulness of Earth. What we create says a lot about who we are.Whether it's our children or our artistic creations, we want to create something lasting and deep.Leo's the sign to do it.

The Cosmic Story: Aquarius Full Moon & Venus Retrograde 2015
The cosmic weather continues to be stormy just as it is here on Earth. As we approach the middle of summer, the heat is on to bring to harvest the projects we've been working on. With Venus leaving the evening sky to be reborn as the Morning Star, we are invited to review what we truly love about our lives. Self-express and group awareness are a must for this Friday's Full Moon.

The Cosmic Story: Cancer New Moon 2015
Each New Moon brings us a new beginning. The New Moon in Cancer focuses our attention on our emotional well-being. Cancer symbolizes the Nurturing Mother, the ocean where life began. At the moment, our oceans are polluted and dying. What does that say about our emotional life? This New Moon, focus on what nurtures you--love, family, emotional intelligence and creativity.

The Cosmic Story: Cancer/Capricorn Full Moon 2015
This July 1st-2nd Full Moon attunes us to Family and Home and our responsibility to them. It is up to us to protect what is precious to us and stop thinking our governments will take care of us. This whole month will see very transformative energies at work. Let them transform you first, and then go out and help transform the world.

The Cosmic Story: Gemini New Moon, June 16, 2015
The Gemini New Moon occurs on Tuesday, June 16th. A new Moon is the time to plant a seed of an intention and in Gemini, it has to do with how we use our minds.
We've been told our thoughts create our reality but even more true is that our beliefs create our thoughts and therefore reality. It all begins in the imagination!
The Summer Solstice is also this week--time is flying by.

The Cosmic Story: Sagittarius Full Moon 2015
This Gemini/Sagittarius Full Moon explores the different ways we use our Mind. The trouble is being too dependent on our rational left brain, which is overwhelmed by information every day. It's time to sink into the right brain imagination to sort through the clutter in our minds. Times awastin'! We need a new story.
Wednesday, May 13, 2015(1 comments)
The Cosmic Story: Taurus New Moon, May 17-18, 2015
A New Moon is a time to plant seeds for the coming lunar month. A Taurus New Moon is especially fertile. What Taurus needs and wants is peace, beauty and security and the perfect place to find that is in The Garden. And we are supposed to be the good stewards of that Garden. We seem to be failing at our purpose. This is the time to take care of our personal garden as well as our Mother Earth.

The Cosmic Story: Scorpio Full Moon 2015
This Scorpio Full Moon will shine on the festival of Beltane, which ushers in the summer season of life, fertility and creativity. The Scorpio Full Moon can show us the old emotional patterns which keep us from using our talents and help us purge them. While Taurus wants us to pay attention to our senses and the beauty around us, the Scorpio full Moon will reflect back what we're feeling inside.

The Cosmic Story: Aries New Moon 2015
Astrologers consider Spring Equinox, when the Sun rises above the Equator, as the beginning of the year. Aries rules this time. And the Aries New Moon is when you plant your intentions for this coming year. What is your new story? Are you ready to manifest it? It's time to set off on your adventure, trusting, like the Holy Fool, that you'll achieve your goal.

The Cosmic Story: Libra Lunar Eclipse, April 4, 2015
We're still in the tidal flow between the total solar eclipse last week and this week's Lunar Eclipse. Called a Blood Moon because it appears red--which is because of the pollution in the air! Libra Lunar eclipse asks us to let go of our old conditioning around relationships. Aries is learning to let go of anger and aggression with other people. Libra balances the energies and tells us to play fair.

The Cosmic Story: The Pisces Solar Eclipse & Spring Equinox of March 2015
Have you been feeling the energy? The Heavens are shape-shifting: the 7th, final square between Uranus & Pluto on Monday, Saturn retrograde last Saturday, a solar eclipse new Moon at the very last degree of the zodiac next Friday as well as the Equinoxes--Spring and Autumn. The cosmic energy wants to bring forth something new. Leave flat-earth ideas behind and step into the quantum field! We need a new story.

The Cosmic Story: Virgo Full Moon March 5, 2015
These past 7 years years of turmoil have been heralded by the Heavens. Why is it so hard to believe that we are connected to the meaning that the Heavens unfold for us? The Heavens are telling us of the continuing story of the unfolding of the 60's promise. Isn't that what's happening here on Earth? Of course we're meeting resistance. The old never dies without a fight--it's called the sunset effect.

The Cosmic Story: 2nd Aquarius New Moon 2015
We've been talking about the Age of Aquarius since the 60s, but what do we really think that is going to be like? Yes I know the song-harmony and under-standing, sympathy and love abounding. But beyond that, what is this mysterious Aquarian energy? I think Aquarius represents the Quantum Field, the field of possibilities, the realm of archetypal patterns. If so, we need to change our story and recognize what it means to us.

The Cosmic Story: Leo Full Moon 2015
2015 is moving ahead quickly. We've already reached the first cross-quarter day in the Wheel of the Year--Imbolc or Candlemas or St. Brigit's Day. Better known in our secular times as Ground Hogs Day! The Leo Full Moon brings us an awareness of our creative potential and how the group might benefit from it. It's time to get engaged with our world. Time to shut off our computers and go do something for the future!
Saturday, January 17, 2015(1 comments)
The Cosmic Story: Aquarius New Moon 2015
Every year as the Sun journeys through Capricorn, our archetypal consciousness turns toward our place in society. What is our dharma? Our purpose? What life-enhancing talent can we bring to our society? When the Sun moves into Aquarius, there's a completely different feeling in the air. Aquarius' archetypal consciousness focuses on ideals, community, freedom, innovation, rebellion and the future.

The Cosmic Story: Cancer Full Moon 2015
Each New Year we take time to look back over the old year to understand what we've learned and then look forward to the possibilities for this new year. With the Cancer Full Moon,we take a look at how well our society(Capricorn Sun) supports our needs(Cancer Moon). Let go of the rules which no longer serve you. It's time to tell a new story--one that isn't centered around money or the economy, but around love and community.

The Cosmic Story: Winter Solstice and Capricorn New Moon 2014
We've arrived back at the Winter Solstice, the beginning of a new year for us in the northern hemisphere. As the Dark is rising, the Light gets reborn! What a wonderful story to know and become part of. We need stories to frame our experiences, and the stories that the cosmos tells us are the important stories of life. Our patriarchal society tries to ignore them, but they explain our experiences and give meaning to life!

The 6th Uranus/Pluto Square: As Above, So Below
AS ABOVE, SO BELOW is an ancient alchemical belief. Right now, the heavens are shouting that it's time for a new revolution, one based on personal integrity and responsibility. It's up to us to change those institutions in our world which condone violence and pollution, domination and misuse of resources. AS WITHIN SO WITHOUT is another belief. Clean up your act so you can clean up the world.

The Cosmic Story: Gemini Full Moon, December 6, 2014
As we approach the end of 2014, there will be another Pluto/ Uranus meeting in the heavens. This is the 6th of 7 squares, challenges to us to change, to take responsibility for the world we want to create. The forces of repression are strong, but they won't win in the end. Evolution happens! This week's Full Moon prompts us to open our minds and follow our hearts.

The Cosmic Story: Sagittarius New Moon 2014
We enter the darkest time of year with a fire sign that wants to light up the sky. The Sun and Moon enter Sagittarius almost simultaneously on Saturday morning, November 22, and the New Moon occurs soon after. The light Sagittarius has to offer to the world is its mainstay--the Truth.

The Cosmic Story: Taurus Full Moon 2014
After the past 2 eclipses, our Taurus Full Moon might seem staid and quiet. That's a good thing. We all need a break before things heat up again in December with the 6th Pluto/Uranus square. As Taurus is the Builder, this Full Moon will help ground whatever new things was born into your life from those eclipses. Scorpio Sun seeks transformation which the Taurus Moon will ground in the change.

The Cosmic Story: Scorpio New Moon Solar Eclipse, October 23, 2014 Purging our Emotions
As a culture in transition, we need to be discovering and using new sources of energy. Our psyches also need to access new energy, So why not give the Cosmos a try? If you believe all humanity is really one, then that has to include the Earth's energy as well as our cosmic energies. The movement of the planets set up cosmic rhythms that affect us all. Work consciously with these energies and your psyche will bless you!

The Cosmic Story: Aries Total Lunar Eclipse 2014
We're back in eclipse season, so be prepared for a month of changes. And today Mercury went retrograde to add to the mix. These planetary energies do not make things happen here on Earth, they just reflect the energies available for our use. How we use them, for good or ill, is up to us. It really is time to stand up and initiate changes in our lives and in the world. The Force is with us!

The Cosmic Story: Libra New Moon, September 23-24, 2014
Well, Autumn arrives with a New Moon in Libra. As all people do in the fall and winter, we begin to gather together to help each other through the dark times. Isn't that what we have to do now with the dark times we're seeing in our world. (Thank you George Bush for helping bankrupt the world!)
Regardless of how bad it gets, we have to keep working for change. Otherwise, we give into despair. Join with others now.

Twisting Symbolism: Isis is a Goddess and Not a Terrorist Gang!
I am sick to death of patriarchal groups taking sacred symbols and twisting them into something evil. You might not know it but ISIS is an Egyptian Goddess of Life and Rebirth. She is not a terrorist organization. We have to stop using her name in vain. We wouldn't call a terrorist organization JESUS, would we?

The Cosmic Story: Pisces Full Moon 2014
This Pisces Full Moon on Monday is also the Harvest Moon--the full Moon closest to the Autumn Equinox. It's also a super Moon, so it will seem extra large and it can effect you more than usual. If you live by water, go there and reflect on what you've harvested in your life this year.
Friday, August 22, 2014(1 comments)
The Cosmic Story: Virgo New Moon 2014
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
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
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
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
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.

Emerging Archetypal Themes: Maleficent: Reclaiming the 13th Fairy and Our Relationship to the Divine Feminine
Disney's 'Maleficent' makes up for all those syrupy sweet versions of the fairy tale, Sleeping Beauty. Ms Woolverton's script shows her knowledge of the original purpose of the fairy tale--to show how patriarchy rejected the Goddess' Earth religion. Fairy tales show us the archetypal patterns within us and our society. Maleficent reclaims an old thread that was dropped from the tapestry of life. Go see Maleficent!

The Cosmic Story: Sagittarius Full Moon 2014
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.
Sunday, May 25, 2014 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.
