Co-Creating with the Cosmos: An Exploration of Personal and Collective Empowerment through Lunar Cycles

The closest and most visible heavenly sphere, the moon, sets up a substantial visceral experience of the galactic dance. Our bodies are made of around 70 percent water, and the moon, like its pull on the earth’s tide, has an influence on our emotional and physical energies.

Did you know you can coordinate decisions, intention-setting, and acting on plans for your life with the moon’s cosmic influence?

Each mo(o)nth, the moon moves through a new position of fertile focus based on the astrological placement of the New Moon phase. In Astro Luna Alchemy, you will learn how to most potently tap into the celestial power period of the month to seed your intentions, concentrate your potential for creative manifestation, and move through growth with grace, agility, and confidence.

The Full Moon phase illuminates something previously unseen, its silvery light offers a new perspective. Luna calls for your reflection – this is a time to celebrate and acknowledge the ripening of an intention or desire as well as to confirm what no longer needs focus. You will learn how to embody the wave of creative flow, honor the expansion of your vision, and consciously release patterns or beliefs that no longer fit your dream.

Lunar lesson in Virgo is happening on Thursday, September 10th, 2020 at 3:00 pm pacific time and Tuesday, September 15th, 2020 at 5:00 pm pacific time.

lessons from a street waif – don’t fall through the cracks, transcend them

The benefactor:
Sometimes people know that you are homeless. If you are young, and perhaps very pretty or have some kind of odd feature that is attractive, a more affluent potential protector may make it known that he wants to save you. (Again, sometimes a protector may be a she, but a he is more common). He may have a wife and even a daughter your very own age. He has all the best intentions for you – clean clothes, a warm bed, a shower, food. He might even take you shopping and out to a fancy restaurant . . .

Backworld slipping is not an option

“Creativity ignited a spark. In that moment, I saw that art is not peripheral, beauty is not optional, but a strategy for survival.” – Terry Tempest Williams

So much filling a room

We moved to a small room in an annex to the Poetry Project at St. Mark’s Church. Nada Gordon was teaching – I think we were free-writing, getting warmed up.

My marriage was a disaster and I did’t necessarily feel like feeling anything – so I focused on the room and the sounds and the imagery and the energy of nervous writers filling the space. I put a lot of pressure on writing to take the place of music.

I’m guessing this happened in 2004.

Five – Beyond the Order of Things

Tangent pulled from the middle of this free-write: Brunettes. I love dark boys, the dark hair, the dark skin, the pale eyes. I never thought I had a type, but looking back I see I have a thing for Mediterranean men. Darker men. I love curly hair and almond-shaped eyes. Light brown eyes, green eyes, blue eyes. Oh, but dark hair and lovely sharp features.
