If there is a gift to the pandemic, it’s getting to immerse myself in ideas around astrology; embodiment and disembodiment; kundalini kriyas and meditations; affirmations and transforming brain patterns and belief systems; reframing consciousness; and creating through teaching, writing, art, music, and tarot and astro exploration. I was already doing these things, but without face-to-face socializing, more study and focus is happening.
I’ve been listening to a lot of podcasts.
In the Cosmic Connection podcast, astrologer Rick Levine talks to Amanda “Pua” Walsh of Astrology Hub about Saturn and Pluto and reincarnation and disincarnation and the nature of consciousness. Rick mentions that his exploration is “radical”. It doesn’t feel radical to me. A deeper inquiry into “what if” and “who/what are we” and ‘what is it to be human” feels like the right thing to be doing right now. (Then again, the work-a-day world felt like nothing more than going through the motions just to survive – a fake way of being ’til I had the time/space/money to be myself).
Check out the conversation:
This conversation brightened my day! I hope it brightens yours.
May you feel inspired to let your freak flag fly.

I am looking forward to meeting Rick and Amanda in person someday. I planned on taking Rick’s annual Breitenbush Hot Springs astrology workshop retreat this July. Of course, it was canceled due to unforeseen global events. Flipping through my calendar and seeing the dates canceled feels weird. After years of wanting to go, finally making the decision to go, then not being able to go, hit me harder than expected. Looks like I am getting clear on what is important to me.

If you want to explore lunar aspects of astrology, join me in my seminar: Co-Creating with the Cosmos. We will be exploring how to embody the sunny, creative, dramatic energy of Leo and how to apply that energy into manifesting with the new moon cycle(s)!
