Full Moon Eclipse in Gemini


A partial Lunar Eclipse of the Full Moon in Gemini occurs at 9:46 am EDT /2:46 pm GMT Wed November 28th.  This Eclipse  asks us to get our head out of the sand (of distractions) and urges us to focus on the big picture. While the Moon is overshadowed for a short time, the Sun in Sagittarius calls us back to our purpose, asking us to remember our life’s true meaning. 

 A Yod aspect draws the energies of several other planets into the eclipse energy field, with the ‘finger of god’ (another term for a Yod formation) directed at the Moon and thus at the eclipse. An eclipse marks a sudden departure from the past and this one is no exception. 

For a good part of this year, life for many has been about arranging ourselves in relationship to others, sorting out the past and preparing to move into a state of being, a new era.

There has been great intensity and tension created by many retrogrades, several eclipses, plus the ongoing Cardinal Grand Cross, which includes a very, very tense angle between Pluto and Uranus.

The latter has been stirring up rebellion and revolt against tyranny and outmoded systems that favour the few over the many. That revolution continues all over the world as we speak.

The inner revolution has been to confront our feelings of powerlessness and to walk away from old patterns of abuse and inner confusion. Where do we give our power away? Do we  sometimes abuse our selves (internally) far more than anyone else does? Facing this may create a temporary crisis as we struggle to find a way out of the shadows. Trust that you will emerge victorious, though it may entail a bit of struggle.

We are moving through a time of deep cleansing in preparation for the renewal that occurs at the Winter solstice.

No matter what interpretation you put on the predictions for this years solstice, (Mayan Calendar etc)  this is always a powerful time as we move toward the darkest night of the year.

Saturn in Scorpio (part of the yod formation) is now holding up a very large mirror so we can get a good look at what we are doing and where we have been. As it moves through the sign of sex, death and transformation, we may have to face issues we tend to avoid, yet this will give us more access (once we get through the ensuing resistance) to the deeper juicier parts of our psyche.

Old residues of guilt and shame hidden in the recesses of our minds can colour our ability to let go and truly inhabit our bodies and our sexuality, and our power. Saturn in Scorpio for the next two and a half years is going to prompt us to examine those residues and deal with what we really want or feel.

Venus now sitting with Saturn brings up issues and fears re sex and sharing,  loss of control,  loss of love, loss of money. The urge for personal transformation will bring us face to face with our need to step beyond what is comfortable, and those with personal planets in Scorpio may get put through the gauntlet.

The Venus/Saturn combination also has great staying power, activating a deep sense of commitment in love and an ability to persist to the end. This bodes well for those aspects of our process that require persistence and perseverance. 

This Full Moon eclipse is the culmination of the  New Moon Eclipse in Scorpio two weeks ago; both are about releasing the past to make way for a new way of doing and being. The intention you put out then will be starting to take root now. If you prepared the soil well and planted deep, what you envisioned will survive the long winter. 

In Scorpio we deal with old hidden issues that are in need of releasing.

This Lunar eclipse, combined with the Full Moon energy, will bring to a close that which is ready to end, and  help us rise to the occasion of creating what we truly want.

In Gemini, it may involve letting go of the stories (or lies)  we tell ourselves ... to make way for a new paradigm.

Mars conjunct Pluto,  sitting on the other side of the Yod aspect,  provides a powerful surge of energy that can move us beyond the past. Though everything may not change in a day, this is definitely the moment it starts to shift.

Eclipses contain the seeds of change, and with Mars/Pluto's focused determination, its the perfect time to create new personal authority and structure in our lives. 

All in all, this is very, very intense energy, so please be cautious and careful right now, as accidents and violence are much more likely under this combo. With Uranus involved, we may be confronted by the unexpected.


This past summer, the same combination corresponded with several very public acts of violence (One was the shooting inside a theater in the US). If you are feeling a build up of tension, find a positive outlet like martial arts, kickboxing,  jogging etc. Or jump up and down and shout! Or... eat chocolate. (try to release or soothe the beast in other words)

And if you sense someone is in a rage…  take cover, keep your head down, don’t provoke them (you could feed them chocolate!)

Meanwhile, the Full Moon in Gemini reflects how easily we can get distracted and caught up in a myriad of details of excess information, symbolized most aptly by the internet, which most will agree is a blessing and a curse. The term ‘search engine’ is a perfect metaphor for a seemingly endless pursuit of information we engage in every day.

Truth is sometimes stranger than fiction and another aspect of this eclipse will be the shattering of false beliefs. What do I know, and how do I know it? What do I believe and why do I believe it?

 "I think, there for I think I am" (Descartes)

Think, think, think…  sometimes we cant stop thinking…!!! 

Jupiter’s proximity to the Full Moon amplifies our thoughts and feelings and inspires us to go beyond the petty and the mundane. The Sagittarius Sun sitting opposite the Moon asks the question… (imagine an East-Indian accent)  ‘What knowledge is it you are seeking? Knowledge of self, or knowledge of  ‘stuff’.’

And one last thing: beware the influence of Neptune, which can cause some serious misinformation misguided behaviour and downright deception.  Read the fine print before you sign on the dotted line!   Neptune, Chiron (in Pisces) and Jupiter (in Gemini with the Full Moon) bring inspiration, heightened creativity and the potential for divine guidance, yet there is also the danger of getting lost in our own fantasies. Find a sacred space to access the potent flow of expansive emotion and ideas, yet keep your feet on the ground.

If driving, please avoid drugs and alcohol and/or… have a designated driver. This is a potentially dangerous Full moon where accidents are very, very possible.

And though Mercury is now direct, it will take a bit of time to retrace its steps’ so don’t assume everything is totally back to normal (whatever that is !!)

 North America, Australia and the Far East will be able to watch as the Gemini Moon becomes partially eclipsed  by the shadow of the earth (see chart below)

You may  notice the heightened polarity between an urge for an objective overview or the tendency toward  self-serving subjectivity. If you feel stuck in a mental loop, take a moment to stop the mind's chatter and sit in your deepest knowing.

Eclipses of the Moon reveal unconscious intuitive processes.    A larger truth or a greater vision may be revealed.    Ask and it shall be given.



The answer lies within.

Mercury Madness


Today Retrograde Mercury joined both the Sun and the North Node in the late degrees of Scorpio. This will intensify some people’s need to get at the hidden truth of a situation. Some will dig deep to get to it. Others will happen upon it by accident.

When Mercury first started going backward on November 6th,  it squared Neptune, planet of illusion and confusion (and enlightenment) I wrote last week about how this would create a blurring of the  lines of communication or of reality or trigger the revelation of secrets or taboo information that had been kept hidden.

Because this occurred exactly the day of the American elections, there was a strong assumption  that things could go horribly wrong…like in the Bush lection of 2000 when he got in even though he had less votes.  When this time everything went smoothly (well except for the Super Storm Sandy a few days before)  many were wondering how the craziness would manifest  (it was expected in the US in particular because of links to the US chart)

Lo and behold… just a few days later, we saw a lovely bit of Scorpio drama emerge in the form of the sex scandals of two US generals who also have worked for the CIA etc etc.  

Scorpio = sex, Mercury retro =  information previously lost or hidden (especially when  in Scorpio where hidden things lie). There was also a link to Mars in Sagittarius (military).  And a square between Mercury  to Neptune can manifest as lying and fictitious information, and veils of illusions.  If you have seen any of this story  on the news... I think you'll agree that it’s a total circus. 

Not being a political pundit (or a gossip monger)  I will leave the discussion of this issue to others more qualified (such as Eric Francis at Planet Waves.com) (political pundit, not gossip)


Anything like that happening in your own life? Is madness erupting for those of you with strong Scorpio in your chart?

 Mercury retrogrades often get a bad rap due to the supposed chaos they can trigger, so this time  I decided I wasn’t going to give all the hype  too much heed . Some times I think we get what we expect…  so why expect disaster?

Well everything was ticking along quite nicely until yesterday when both Mercury (and the Sun) hit my natal Saturn (in my first house of self) and squared my natal Pluto as well.  This is a very very very intense aspect in my chart and I can tell you I have definitely been feeling it this weekend. Talk about being between a rock and a hard place.

And yet also quite funny really; for all my protestation, the last two days have been rife with crazy technological screw ups and communication chaos… creating much angst but making me laugh as well.  For instance, suddenly my mobile phone will not receive calls or text messages. I can call out but no one can call in.

And I have used up five discs  trying to burn a DVD for a meeting I am hosting next week; nothing is working so far and I don't know why (well I know why, but that's  not a logical explanation is it?!).

And remember my story a few weeks back about my date going horribly wrong when the planets were full of oppositions at the last Full Moon. We went out again in the midst of the Grand Cross tension… (I said I would keep you posted). Well it all started off ok, but eventually end we did succumb to pressure and ended up in some ridiculous stand off. Again.

Everything is  ok now but it was a bit testy for a few days. I do have to say, when he was stomping away and I was fiercely calling him a coward, a part of me was quite detached and thinking, ah this is the Grand Cross acting out, it’s just the planets. Haha ...  this is not real!!!   This time I  was not going to be so unconsciously dragged into things. Well... um...mostly...not.

Have you heard of the book: The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz?  One of the agreements is
  
  “ Don’t take anything personally”…!!

When there are intense planets cris -crossing and opposing each other and setting off sparks, remaining detached is  not always easy.  Yet, knowing you are  in the midst of a planetary storm really does help.

Fast forward to this weekend’s retrograde Mercury moving back into intense Scorpio and hitting my Saturn (i.e wall !!)   A part of me finds it quite funny to be played with by the Trickster, Mercury. To another part (the serious Saturn part)…  not so funny!

So… he stopped by last night to see me,  but as I didn’t respond to several texts, and my doorbell is not working (!!!) he didn’t come in.

Meanwhile I was getting very tense  (Saturn square Pluto is very, very tense) and wondering why he hadn’t called. But damned if I was going to call him. So I sat and stewed (shades of the last scenario) and meanwhile he tried and tried to contact me with no response. He came all the way to my place and then, thinking I was either not at home or already asleep, he turned around and went home again (a 1 ½ hr bus trip)

When I woke up this morning and still no message, I really started t fry. But then I discovered the Sun was  lighting up my Saturn stuff… so I decided to try and let go and relax and let him show up whenever. Of course that was a challenge with the tension inherent in my chart being activated. In fact it gave me a chance to look at that stuff and do some inner work around trust.

Then I found the package he left me on my doorstep (movie for us to watch, hand carved candle holder, pamphlet about native healing herbs) etc (I know…    awwwwwwww!! :)

My pride melted,  I called him to say thank you…  and subsequently discovered that he had sent me numerous messages (which I never got!!) and had actually been at my door the night before. Geez!

Moral of the story.: In a Mercury Retrograde, especially when Neptune is involved, : nothing is as it seems so… be patient, Don’t jump to conclusions … or judgments, until you know the truth of a situation. Never assume…anything.

And with Mercury and Saturn in Scorpio: Try not to be paranoid. 


P.S. A sense of humour helps!

Solar Edclipse in Scorpio

-->

“A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thereby totally or partially obscuring the image of the Sun for a viewer on Earth.

 The total Solar Eclipse happens on November 13, 2012, 2:08 pm PST, 5:08 pm EST, and 10:08 pm Greenwich (Nov 14 in Eastern Europe and points east). It will last 3.2 hours, showing an influence lasting 3 years and 2 months (astrologically speaking).

If you are in Cairns, Australia you will be able to view the whole eclipse. The rest of us will feel it rather than see it.

The power of Scorpio is extremely strong right now with both Sun and Saturn and the New Moon Eclipse.  Scorpio rules sex, death, shared resources (taxes); all the taboo stuff people avoid or talk about in hushed whispers. Scorpio penetrates the surface and brings what is hidden in the shadows into the light of day. Whatever does come to the surface now can be cleared for once and for all. 

With Saturn in Scorpio over the next two and a half years,  the truth will gradually out, and secrets will  surface. Tuesday's (or Wed for some)  Solar Eclipse will accelerate this process by triggering a cathartic cleansing of self, revealing old shaming stuff you really don’t need anyway, or by bringing you face to face with something you have been avoiding. This can be uncomfortable over the short term, yet worth the effort to stand your ground and do the inner work. Once we face what is not working any more, it  can free up a lot of energy.  As we release old feelings of shame or regret, we clear a space to begin again, and a time of endings becomes a time of new beginnings.

This is what Scorpio is all about. Like its symbol the pheonix, we can rise again from the ashes.

( To see where these changes and transformations will occur, look to the house that Scorpio rules in your own chart.... see www.astro.com to get a free chart)   I listed the house meanings in a post a few months ago. You can find them at the end of the article found here: http://aurumastrology.blogspot.ca/2012/09/new-moon-in-virgo-its-all-in-details.html

Mars right now in Sagittarius reminds that ‘the truth shall set you free….’ (just remember that your truth may be different from mine... and vice-versa.  No need to force anything on anybody.)
 The intense polarities of the past month have already brought up issues regarding power and control. Belief systems  highlighted by Mars and Jupiter may have been challenged.

As this New Moon in Scorpio starts a new cycle of energy, the added eclipse creates a distinct and powerful break with what has gone before. Together they emphasize the need to move on in a big way.  And remember... a New Moon is a seed event; whatever intention we put out can and will grow and manifest.

So if  there is something you have been struggling to let go of, some change you want to see manifest in your life, this energy can give you a rocket boost through what has been holding you back.

Just be forewarned:there is always some kind of personal transformation in Scorpio, and possibly even a necessary sacrifice.  In ancient times, the ritual death of the old king was seen as necessary to  bring in a new abundance and new growth. This  ‘death of the old’  theme recurs again and again now as  Saturn moves through Scorpio and Pluto and Uranus square off in the background.

The resulting transformation and release  prepares us for what occurs at the Winter Solstice coming up soon  at the cusp of Sagittarius and Capricorn (more on that in another post).  This is a  time of great change and acceleration, and so many powerful planetary events mark a significant  turning point for  the human race and planet earth.

As we go through this purge of the past, we release potent and buried parts of ourselves, which will in turn help us move forward into the new year and the new age (if you believe in that part of it).  The energies now will help us make the changes necessary.

It’s only when we resist (Saturn) that things get painful.
Then there’s also Neptune, planet of illusions and delusions turning direct today, which  will combine with the Mercury retrograde to obfuscate details and create confusion and chaos.

This means while the eclipse is pushing things up and out, Neptune and Mercury may conspire to keep them hidden.

It will require diligence and perhaps a bit of ruthless honesty to stay real in the midst of all this and do what’s necessary to get at the truth (you know… the one that will set you free!).

If you feel a bit pressured or perhaps scrambled, now you know why.  We can always benefit from some downtime to listen to what’s coming up... and that is especially true right now. A retreat or a weekend off, or some time to journal or process in some way ... will facilitate the process of release.

Be gentle with yourself.  Make a wish ...  then let it go.

And  rest assured in the knowledge that you are a precious one, cared for by a benevolent and love filled universe.

 
Desiderata
Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant; they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. 

Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals;
and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself.
Especially, do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass.
Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.

Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with imaginings.  Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. 

Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.

And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him (or her) to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life,

 keep peace with your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world.

 Be careful. 
Strive to be happy.

Grand Trine and Grand Cross cont'd

-->
With all the Jupiter Mars Gemini Sag stuff increasing the pontification potential, and Mercury/Neptune blurring communications (lol)  I feel the urge to have another try at explaining the current energies.

The tension of a Grand Square is a kind of closed system which we can feel trapped in. The pressures from each corner create a kind of impasse…in relation to the energies involved. Over time it can transform yes… into a jewel of great value…(understandings, breakthroughs etc) or  we could just feel overwhelmed or stuck.

There’s a good chance people will be unpredictable or unreliable and likely push your buttons over the weekend.

The Grand Trine in water (fluidity, emotions) shows us how/where  this pressure can become positive and work to our benefit. It is possible to rise above, though it will take some conscious effort. Still, this welcomed fluidity can  help us transcend  challenges with ease and grace!

As long as we remember that with the current Mercury craziness  our thinking may not be especially clear, as we are more susceptible right now to incorrect assumptions, wooly thinking, miscommunications or downright deceptions.

Mercury in Scorpio also adds a touch of paranoia for good measure! (the opposite of ease and grace lol)

Here’s a personal example of how this could all play out. 

Two weeks ago, when the Moon was sitting with Pluto (intense) the person I am seeing invited me to dinner. He was also committed to work on a big project that day, and did not know how late he would be.

He got so busy he didn’t contact me until 10 o’clock that night … to say they were still at it. I was furious as you can imagine and we had a big row. Thing is I knew it could go late and was ok to stay in. I was just  irritated that he ‘didn’t bother’ to call (valid reason me thinks)

He felt he had warned me so it wasn’t his fault, he had to work yadayadayada

I knew had a choice…didn’t have to react…yet I felt pulled into this vortex of negative energy . it actually felt like a whirlpool sucking me down into this reaction I really didn’t want to have. And even though I knew I had a choice, and and I knew I was blowing it, I just couldn’t stop myself. Ahhhh
 
The good thing was, later, that knowledge allowed to finally let it go… because I was able to take responsibility for my own reaction. And as soon as I backed off, he apologized.
Whew. Happy ending.

Now its two weeks later, he has invited me again…and I am feeling anxious. It seems to be for no reason, yet am afraid  there could be a repeat. I know it is not rational, and again I do have a choice, yet I feel kind of boxed in somehow…like in the movie Groundhog Day where he repeats the same mistakes again and again.  That’s how a Grand Cross can feel.

So… I find myself  feeling vulnerable and touchy (Moon in Cancer)...
 and afraid he wont show   (Uranus square moon – erratic, Mercury in Scorpio, suspicious)    so I call him to make sure we are really going …

which makes him feel pressured  (Moon Opp. Pluto)    so he resists  (Uranus Square Pluto)   and though on the surface he tries to placate me    (Mercury/Neptune, Moon/Cancer)  he becomes vague under pressure   (Mercury sq Neptune)   and gets off the phone too quickly (Venus opp Uranus)   which could easily be just my paranoid perception… (Moon opp Pluto)

It’s amazing how things can go horribly wrong in seconds!!  And through it all, I know there is this intense planetary energy and I am trying to figure out how to get out of its grip.

I can acknowledge my insecurity (Moon in Cancer) by doing something concrete(Moon trine Saturn) and nice for myself (like get a massage, which I did yesterday (Venus in Libra trine Jupiter) which is nurturing and healing (Chiron/Venus/Neptune) 


I can meditate to get centered (Moon trine Neptune/Chiron) and also give positive support to my friend (Moon in Cancer)


 I can also back off from pressuring him( Pluto opp Moon) and give him space  (Venus opp Uranus)  and trust   (Neptune in Pisces)   that everything will be fine. I can be honest  (Moon/Saturn) about my feelings without using that to manipulate   (Mercury/Neptune)(tricky!!)

Pluto opposite Moon can be obsessive so part of the plan is to release some of that energy creatively  (I made a snowman…that was a good start!)  plus music helped as well. I even got out my guitar   (Moon/Venus, Moon Neptune)

And even just revealing my insecurities and foibles here in writing (Mercury in Scorpio) has been therapeutic. Ha…he just texted me to firm up dinner plans.

I’ll let you knowhow it turns out. 

Nothing is certain under this crazy sky!! 
  Detachment? Surrender. Trust!
  
 “ The only thing certain in this life is uncertainty”


                                               




Mercury Retrograde and Grand Cross



The chart of this Saturday’s sky has two very distinct planetary configurations that you can see in the image posted above. There is a large blue triangle created by lines to Sun and Saturn in Scorpio, Moon in Cancer and Neptune/Chiron in Pisces. This is called a Grand Trine.

Then you can also see a red square that is called a Grand  Cross or Square, made of right angles between Moon, Venus, Pluto and Uranus, with cross angles between each corner. This is the Grand Cross we have experienced on and off for the past couple of years, with Saturn previously in one corner (when Saturn and Pluto began to square off in 2008, the financial markets crashed). 

Today's Moon in Cancer and Venus in Libra are currently creating the Cross and once again setting off the ongoing tension of the Pluto/Uranus square.

A Grand Cross can be likened to a diamond. It is created through immense pressure being applied in a contained space, which compresses and transforms the energies of each planet into something quite strong and powerful. 

In Cardinal signs (Aries Libra, Cancer and Capricorn) this is initiating energy, which ultimately brings change and new growth. Firstly, the pressure and tension of each squaring planet has to be dealt with.  Pluto in Capricorn is bringing death to the old order by shaking up our material world; Uranus in Aries is instigating intense rebellion against systems and power structures that no longer serve us, while  awakening  new visions, new perceptions, new possibilities.

The Moon in emotional and hypersensitive Cancer  over the weekend will activate our self protective instincts, making some of us a bit touchy  and extra resistant to Pluto’s power trips and control dramas. This is tricky emotional territory. Don't take everything too personally!

Venus in its home sign of Libra (relationships) opposite Uranus, is itching for freedom and won’t be held down or dictated to... (don't fence me in!)  Venus also rules money, and there may be sudden gains and losses in finances as well as in love.

Last week I spoke about the opposition between Mars and Jupiter exaggerating our zealousness and need to be right. It's still there, bigging up our know-it-all-ness. 

"Seek first to understand, before you seek to be understood" (Steven Covey, Seven Habits of Highly Successful People)
  
Did I say this was going to be easy?
  
Well.... trines (120 degree angle) are easy flowing energy. A Grand Trine (three trines) can remain dormant without some tension added. And we are in luck!! …tension is being provided…big time!  Like when reigning in a wild horse... ( I know you do this every day ) this contains a lot of power that can be harnessed to good use. Or it can run right over us.

You can also see, on the top left, a lot of red lines going between Neptune and Chiron in Pisces…(at 9 o’clock on the circle)  up and over to Mercury and the North Node in Scorpio (around 1 o’clock). This is where information gets burred and dodgy deals get made!!  

Watch out  for duplicity and keep your communication clear and honest (did you hear that Mr Romney?!)  Its easy to blur the lines or exaggerate the truth.


And finally... Mercury is slowing down and preparing to reverse its direction. The few days before it goes retrograde is called the Mercury 'storm',  which begins a period where the logical order of things  get jiggled about. Mercury is the planet of communication and transportation and electromagnetic fields…. when in reverse it turns all those things upside down. 

This retrograde will be especially chaotic because of the square of Mercury to Neptune, planet of illusions and delusions. Nothing will be as it seems.  The Us election occurs Nov 6th, the day Mercury goes retrograde. Many believe there will be much disruption and chaos around the results. 

The super-storm Sandy has already caused immense havoc in the US, and has  disrupted many, many lives. 

 Neptune rules the seas!!  



 Mercury was retrograde during  the 2000 American election, where Bush was declared the winner even though in actuality he had less votes. As I said, be on the watch for duplicity, deception and dodgy deals.

 There is also what is called a Kite formation, with Pluto at the head (help!), which joins the Grand Cross to the Grand Trine.

The result is a dynamic, creative and very powerful and  transformative energy. Anyone with planets in any of these spots or degrees will be having an ongoing shake up and wake up type experience in their life. If you know your chart you can look to see where these aspects sit to see where great change is going on, or where difficulty is occurring (or call an Astrologer to help you).

Looking at it all positively, we know that creativity comes out of chaos. The fact that everything is a rockin’ and a rollin’ and things are so unsettled is not necessarily a negative. When everything is in stasis, we rarely question or seek answers. It is usually only when our lives get turned upside down that we start to look beyond the surface of things.

The Grand Trine in water can have a positive, stabilizing and healing effect on emotions that get irritated by the  Grand Cross stuff...or even if they don't.  As the surface water is churned and stirred, we can either learn to ride the waves, or else dive down deep to find some inner peace and stillness.

Then, we have two eclipses coming up in November... things are definitely heating  up as we head toward the December 21st alignment with the galactic core predicted in the Mayan Prophesies. 

Never a dull moment!

Have a great weekend.
