The Flow of Your Space: Water in the Home

Copy of Move Like WaterGreetings beloveds,

Summer time and the living is EASY…well it might not be easy but it definitely is hot. There are so many ways to utilize the element of water in our lives. During the summer, we gravitate to this element even more as the intensity of the heat makes us crave water as it refreshes and cools us. Here are some ways to include water in your home and space:

  • water fountains
  • fish tanks
  • pools
  • images of water

But you can also take the time to connect to the element personally and see how it would like to be included in your space. For me, I have mermaids, seashells, blues, greens, teals, and my water altar jar. What are your favorite ways to connect to the element of water in your living space?

Summer Solstice 2018 Love Reading

Summer Solstice Love 2018

Greetings beloveds!

Are you singing summer time love songs solo to yourself, your lover, or a new friend? It’s no coincidence that summer is associated with love, sex, and creation. The heat calls us out of our homes and clothes sometimes. Ruled by the element of water, we are pulled within to the shell of the crab Cancer to gestate. This allows for us to build and be reborn. This summer the theme will be developing and practicing compassion. Compassion towards yourself and towards others. We can get so wrapped up in our own lives and creating our own realities that we forget that others are doing the same. It goes back to the 4 Agreements from Don Miguel Ruiz. 

  1. Be Impeccable with Your Words
  2. Don’t Take Anything Personally
  3. Don’t Make Assumptions
  4. Always Do Your Best

We do not know what others experience and how the experiences affect them. Everyone has their own lives and their own paths. When we make assumptions about others feelings, experiences, dreams, purpose, background we limit what they can be to us. If we hold on to these assumptions we can not fully experience the other person. We only see what we believe they can be. We will all be healing. The Masculine Shadow is being addressed. This can bring up really difficult feeling and behaviors for our self and each other. Find your own ways to see through others eyes. To see what they experience. This will develop your own ability to love and receive love- the key to manifestation.

July

Find ways to show that you care for others. Show up for the work that as being done. If you find you do not have the capacity to hold space, create spaces where folks can care for themselves. I do this with my blog and other social media efforts. Although I am not directly in contact with you all, this space connects us. We are able to explore our thoughts and feelings. To move forward. We can all create spaces for support. Be creative and open.

August

Find your love language and the love language of those close to you. Then discover ways to express that you care through those languages. The more that we give the more we receive. This does not always mean that you have to sit with someone for hours. What are the ways that you express that you care for others? How do they prefer to receive love? Fill your cup. Keep it full. Then let it overflow. From the overflow, share with others. This pool is endless and you always have access to it but you must find your connection. That is the work.

September

Love does not end. It is from this endless pool that we realize that every connection we consciously make is fed through our unconscious reality of being fully connected to all things, times, and spaces. True infinity. There will be challenges this month. The seasons are beginning to change. The air starts to shift. We move from the heart to the soul. Connect these two through Heart, Third Eye, and Crown Chakra work. Breathe deeply so that you are able to take everything in. I believe in you. I love you.

Summer Solstice 2018: The Value of Being Real

Copy of Summer Solstice

Greetings beloveds,

It’s SUMMER SOLSTICE!! In general, this time of the year is all about nurturing the seeds that we have planted during the spring. It’s a time when the world feels alive. The sun is high overhead, the days are longer, the air hot, and the waters are cool. Summer brings us the light side of winter. Remember when you faced your shadow last winter? This season, it’s your shadow’s turn to ask who are you? What does your conscious self want? To find what your shadow wants, you look at the things you manifest which you do not want. To see what your conscious self wants you look at what manifests that you DO want. The things that make you feel happy. When the sun is high we see the world and what we present to the world. A moment when we fully see our conscious manifestations. In astrology it would be equivalent to the ascendant in astrology. To learn more about the energy of summer check out my post about Flowing with the Season.

Summer is ruled by the element of water and the astrological sign of Cancer. The water element allows the flow of change to move us from where we have been to new destinations/destiny’s. This could be in the ease of a lazy river, the deluge of a flood, or the abrupt wall of a tsunami crashing down upon us. This summer we take the clarity and experiences we gained this spring and use them to create new streams of income. Many folks have changed jobs, gained promotions, and started new businesses. Perhaps you received some guidance on your overall purpose. At the very least we know what we DO NOT want. How we will go about finding, developing, or nurturing these new financial related ventures? Through connecting to our creative center, the sacral chakra. Any exercises or work you can do related to your sacral chakra will assist you in birthing these dreams from last winter into reality to be harvested in the fall. The sacral chakra is our creative, manifesting, center. It is near the womb and encompasses our ability to channel energy up from the earth and down from the heavens into this plane. It is a magical space but when we ignore or fill our sacral chakra with obligations, restrictions, or rules we lessen our ability to really see all that we can be. Choose your desire, feed it, water it, nurture it and work that sacral chakra.

June:

The divine feminine is here to assist you with this manifesting moment. Clear out what you do not need and make way for new growth. This could come in the form of a feminine identifying person, place, or system. Watch for symbols associated with the feminine to guide you and offer affirmation that you are on the right path. On a practical note, be wise and follow your intuition. If you follow your intuition it will lead you. Worrying about am I doing this right? Is this where I’m supposed to be? CONFUSION is a sign that you are not connecting to your soul, higher self, shadow, and Spirit. Sit down and listen. When you get that filling to go then go.

July

Hello retrograde season! Planets are in full affect right now. There are obstacles you are experiencing. These may feel overwhelming but do not give up. Anytime we meet resistance, slow down. Just as you meet your shadow in the winter, meet your conscious in the summer. Face the things that you have done and the seeds you have sown. Know that you are doing your work and stay in your lane.

August

From the pain, from the loss comes those who have your back. There are new partnerships, friendships, human, spirit, and plants are coming forth to show how blessed you are. Join with those that sparkle like the ocean at high noon.

 

This will be a summer of change, growth, and transformation. Be open, be ready and love yourself fiercely.

Goddesses of Life and Death: Kali Speaks

IMG_5514ilfordmodifiedGreetings beloveds,

Been feeling off balance? Like the world is crashing around you, out of control, as if the world is just against you? You’re are definitely not alone. While there is a lot going on astrologically, Kali has come forth to speak loudly. 2017 was a year of releasing, which is easier said than done. Now, we are in a space where those lessons are coming back around for us. Through our family’s, friends, work, passion, purpose, self/shadow.

Kali, brought a dance of life and fire to get us off our butts and doing the work. She also lit the fires of attachment and the power to see our realities for what they are. We are being fully authentic. Feeling and expressing who we are in the best of times and the worst. All of who we are. There’s no shame, no fear, no holding back. Let it be free! Authentic.

Set your boundaries, if anyone does not respect them let them be removed from your presence. You’re worth the very best.

When we try to squash down our true feelings eventually they will explode. Wreaking havoc on everything in their paths. Whether that’s your internal self or those around you.

Kali says let what needs to be released go and dance wildly, with joyful abandon.

I love you all!!

New Moon in Gemini: Dare to Be Great

New Moon in Gemini

It’s Gemini Season! We are feeling the pull to get out and share what matters most to us (to those who deserve it). We have recently come through some difficult times of release, rejuvenation, and rebirth. The birth process is not always easy and yet there is idea that everything is sunshine and roses during the spring. More so we are going through birth, new born, teething, and terrible twos in a short period of time. When we are most focused on what others want from us than on what we need for ourselves we come up with a deficit. Now that we have accessed what truly holds value for us during our time in Taurus it’s time to start letting people know what our standards are through using our voice.

Through embracing how we truly feel about ourselves, our hopes, and our dreams we can begin to express that with others. This can be done by connecting our heart desires to our throat chakra. If you have not worked on grounding and defining your sense of stability through your root, sacral, and solar plexus chakra’s you might find this to be a bit disconcerting. No worries. Do the work now. Gemini’s may not be the best at finishing projects but they definitely enjoy the process.  Get into the process of healing as this will assist you in releasing old patterns and codes that do not serve you. Although we are in the time of rebirth, we may just be bringing back old ways that should have died but we would not let go. Release!! My video on ancestral healing and release can help you with this process.

This this work you’ll find yourself experiencing victories in your personal life, home, work, and spiritual practice. You may also find that in the same ways that the veil is thinner during Samhain or Halloween that your divination abilities are heightened at this time. Cultivate your talents through paying active attention to what you excel at. If you have a difficult time knowing what your gifts are, ask those who you trust what skills they have seen you exhibit. Gemini’s are great mirrors for communication and allow for us to share clearly what we see in ourselves and each other. Also, watch for signs and symbols of significance. This could be through numerology, astrology, animal symbols, or your personal signs. For me, I know I need to ground because I’ll scratch a wall with my car. It never fails, when I’m all up in my head and unbalanced Spirit wakes me up with a jolt. Identify your personal signs as you nurture your relationship with Spirit and self.

Happy New Moon!

June’s Planetary Placements

June Placements 12 Mercury moves into Cancer

Our communication softens and becomes more nurturing. It’s time for us to connect with our hearts and speak our truths. Mercury in Cancer will cause you to find a cuddle buddy or someone who you can have all the deep heart wrenching discussions about your family, friends, and dreams.

June 13 New Moon in Gemini: This is a super busy new moon that I’ll cover soon in the New Moon reading. For now, here’s the planetary breakdown.

Pluto/ Saturn in Capricorn and Jupiter in Scorpio are in retrograde.

Mercury, and Uranus in Taurus

Mars in Aquarius

Sun in Gemini

Mercury in Cancer

Venus in Leo

Neptune in Pisces

June 16 Uranus semi-square Neptune

Uranus the planet of revolutions and advanced communication creates a bit of friction against Neptune the planet of dreams and the subconscious. On the surface you are rebelling against conditions that cause oppression for yourself and others. This could be in the realm of economics in that you are wanting to become a part or support more radical different forms of commerce. Yet, you might be too scared that you will lose the little bit of control you do have if you get directly involved. This is a good time to review of where you invest your time and energy. Be brave and willing to stand up for what you believe in. This is a time to action against oppression. A new world is coming.

June 18 Saturn quincunx True node and Neptune retrograde

Saturn quincunx True Node: You are called to following your true purpose. It is time to connect your vocation with your higher calling. Doing so through a voice of just power that is confident but not self-centered is vital to your success. You are being tempted to exploit your influence or wield it over others to serve yourself and not the greater good. Prejudice and judgement are signs that you are not moving towards your purpose but being sidetracked. Use your powers for equality not oppression.

Neptune Retrograde in Pisces: Retrograde season is in full swing! Neptune in retrograde in Pisces at this time is all about love, friendships, and our dream relationship. We are diving in deeply to the fantasy of what our love lives or life in general could be. We may encounter people or situations that seem to be the perfect manifestation of what we desire. Remember that in the sign and planet of dreams things are not always what they seem. Key words are to MOVE SLOW!! Enjoy yourself but take a realistic stance. Hold off on jumping into relationships or other dream propositions until Neptune stations direct on November 24th.

June 26

Mars Retrograde in Aquarius (Pluto, Saturn, Jupiter, Neptune all in retrograde)

Mars in Aquarius represents a desire for independence and liberation. We are wanting to explore our ability to provide for yourself in an innovative way. You might be experimenting with new forms of technology, media, or currency. We are wanting to try new things and approaches to fixing our personal, community, societal, and global issues. Just be mindful of only wanting to try things your way. If you find yourself pushed into a corner you will rebel to keep your freedom. As this is Mars in retrograde we won’t be making progress as quickly as we could. There will be resistance to changing our society and how we make money. We’ve seen some of this coming in the decline in mining, farming, and other industries. We are on the verge of a surge in technological advancements. Stay on your toes, stay open to change, be patient.

Pluto Quintile Chiron

Pluto in Capricorn in reverse quintiles Chiron in Aries. Pluto in Capricorn (6th house) gives highlights the importance of hard work in achieving success. You are putting this energy towards healing and things that bring you back to life. We have been living according to what OTHERS want for us or what society says we should be doing. Pluto in Capricorn quintile Chiron in Aries gives us a push to align with our personal purpose through a creative outlet. This could be reinventing yourself, regenerating your business or approach to your job, or a literal creative pursuit. IF you have been working on debuting something new to the world now is the time when you may get that spark to really go after it or begin to share this information with others.

Pluto/ Saturn in Capricorn, Jupiter in Scorpio, Neptune in Pisces and Mars in Aquarius are in retrograde.

                Mercury, and Uranus in Taurus

Sun and Mercury in Cancer

Venus in Leo

June 29 Mercury in Leo

Mercury in Leo in the 1st house brings us a great opportunity to develop our communication skills. If you are confident in your ability to engage others and speak your truth be mindful of the power that you hold during this placement. We are very magnetic, and you might draw to you more attention than you want especially if your opinions or truth triggers others. If you are not confident in your speech or presence, then you may be susceptible to others influence. Develop your own truth and opinions. Find productive ways to express yourself. If others are not open to what you have to say they many not be the audience for you.
