Aquarius Full Moon Lunar Eclipse, August 5-6, 2009 Lunar eclipses are like super powerful Full Moons. The Sun, Moon and Earth all align on the same plane, and for a few hours, the Earth blocks the light of the Sun from reaching the Moon. The Earth cuts off solar consciousness from the reflective power of lunar unconscious. There is a pause, a held-breath, when we get to see what's there in our lives without indulging in our usual emotional complexes.

The Cosmic Story: Sagittarius Lunar Eclipse, May 24-25, 2013 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.

Sagittarius Full Moon Lunar Eclipse, June 15, 2011 Now the Cosmic story wants us to re-align ourselves to a different vibratory pattern, one that opens us to greater consciousness and understanding. Are you seeing how your beliefs and thoughts are creating your reality? If things aren't working out the way you want them to, perhaps it's time to let go of old expectations. Are you running into obstacles? Perhaps you need to reconsider what you think you desire.

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!

The Cosmic Story: Capricorn New Moon, January 1, 2014 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.

The Cosmic Story: Libra/Aries Full Moon, March 27, 2013 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.

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: Scorpio New Moon Solar Eclipse 2013 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.

Autumn Equinox & Aries Full Moon September 23, 2010 Once again, we meet at the balance point of light and dark. The Autumn Equinox occurs this year on September 22-23. The Equinox is a moment of balance, of quiet, of stillness, as the Sun passes over the Equator from North to South. We have reached the time of Harvest, and a few hours later, the Aries Harvest Full Moon will reach its peak. A moment of perfect balance, made sacred by the self-awareness we need to cultivate.

Cancer New Moon Solar Eclipse – July 21-22, 2009 Solar eclipses eliminate old ideas and ways of doing things. They also repeat every 19 years. So you might like to remember what was going on in 1990 and see how you responded to the situation you encountered. How did you change then? If you went with something new, now you have another opportunity to take that ability or realization to the next level of achievement.

The Cosmic Story: Scorpio Full Moon 2014 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!

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.

The Full Moon in Virgo is especially suited for healing, although some of us might find the cure difficult to swallow. This full Moon sits right on the Uranus/Saturn opposition that's been the continuing saga in the cosmic story since Election Day. It's the fight of the century, the OLD vs. the NEW!

Cancer Solar Eclipse July 11, 2010 The sign of Cancer is important to all of us. It evokes the Mother, the ebb and flow of tides, the nurturing waters of womb and well, the emotional body that animates the Soul. We are too quick to disregard the Mother in our society, too busy to pay attention to the ebb tides of life, too stressed to listen to the emotional body's messages, too unconscious to heed the call of the Soul.

Avatar: The Archetypal Message Is "Get Back In Your Body!" Avatar's appeal isn't just visual, it's visceral.

Woe to the corporations, because it speaks to people's hearts and makes us think about our lives and about our world. I'd like to take you on a Jungian exploration of the film so you can see the archetypal depth of meaning there, and know why so many people are drawn to it.

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.

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!

The Cosmic Story: Virgo Full Moon & Spring Equinox March 19-20, 2011 The Virgo Full Moon focuses our awareness -- awareness being one of the gifts of any full Moon -- on how each of us has a place and purpose in the pattern of Life. Where Pisces asks us to swim in the multi-dimensional ocean of life energy, Virgo demands that we incarnate the specific blueprint of life that each of us vibrates to. How do we become "virginal' so we can give ourselves away? How serve our fellow human beings?

It's time to shine. This Aries new Moon is the time to plant those seeds of new beginnings, which originate in a new sense of identity.

The Cosmic Story: Gemini Lunar Eclipse 2012 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.

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.

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!

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.

Capricorn Full Moon Eclipse 2009 Eclipses mark endings and beginnings, and you're probably working out some issue that needs to be resolved so that you can get on with your life. It's a good time to eliminate anything that no longer serves your vision of life. That includes finances, relationships, jobs or belief systems. The patriarchy is dead - it just doesn't realize it yet.

What Progressive Need to Do Next: Become Teachers and Storytellers If we want to see our vision and our ideals accepted by mainstream America, we need to tell a better story. The best way to change people's old beliefs is to understand what people need and then tell them the story of how to get it. I believe that if we tell our stories in a positive way, we can alleviate people's fear and win out over the corporate story. But we have to go into our communities and talk with people.

Super-Charged Summer Solstice and Cancer New Moon, June 20-22, 2009 Cancer is one of the most ancient constellations known to man. Since earliest times, this constellation has been linked with life, the protection of it, and the sacredness of it: life as a universal concept, life for the Earth, and life for the individual species, a family. Cancer was called the 'Gate of Men' - our souls pass through it to descend from the heavens to incarnate into the physical body.

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.

The Cosmic Story: Pisces New Moon 2014 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!

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: 3rd Uranus/Pluto Square--May 20, 2013 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).

Aquarius Solar Eclipse, February 6, 2008 Solar eclipses are fascinating, perhaps because they represent the Sacred Marriage of Sun and Moon, the Masculine and Feminine Energies of the Cosmos. This Solar Eclipse in Aquarius initiates a year-long quest to manifest social justice, ingenuity, independence and unity in the face of oppression and mass manipulation by the powers-that-be. It's not what the country can do for us, but what we can do for the country.

The Archetype of wholeness in an individual becomes the archetype of Community in the collective.

It's time to lay down your burdens and heal your ancient wounds. Doesn't that sound like a good idea to you? We have to let the tides sweep away the old so the new life can flow in. We are at the end of the Piscean Age and we have to release the many wounds our soul has received during the past 2000 years. Let Go! and Flow!

The Cosmic Story: Libra New Moon, September 30, 2016 Big Love! Astrology is a wonderful personality indicator and a timing rhythm for your soul's evolving life. So with this Libra New Moon we get a chance to review our relationships and see how we've matured regarding how we treat others. Are we fair and balanced or do we project our shadows onto others? We'll get to focus on relationships for this next year as the big planet Jupiter travels through this sign of the 'Other'. Dive Deep!

Scorpio New Moon 2008 and the American Election Scorpio is never afraid to get down and dirty, and in this buildup to Election Day, when Uranus, the planet of revolutionary new values, reform and awakening opposes Saturn, the planet of convention, conservative values and the status quo, we're seeing just how low we can go. Before Election morning, we'll get to see all manner of muck rise to the top. Let's release and cleanse the toxins from our collective psyches.

A Halloween Story Samhain, the Celtic festival that marks the beginning of winter, is still celebrated in many countries. Samhain, meaning 'Summer's End' is the time when the sun's power wanes, and the forces of winter and darkness - and therefore of the gods of the Underworld - grow in strength. It is a celebration of the dead, when the veils between the worlds open and the spirits of the dead can come into our world.
