Sisters Walking into the Lion’s Mouth

Stories about the Dakota Access Pipeline have been troubling my heart for some time now - this story by Victory Lonnquist especially moved me, brought me to tears, touched me on so many levels. Maybe it's the moon, or my moon - or that water, the earth, women - are so powerful and yet, so repressed ...

Donuts, Aquarius, and The Shadow – Dancing with the Echoes of Eternity

Grief and the shadow have been staring me down. I'm seeing patterns, and more and more, time feels less linear to me, spherical, maybe even donut-shaped. Addiction, alienation, secrets, power, sexuality, envy, fear - the stuff we keep hidden - I've been circling around the subjects and diving through. I feel like I've been breaking ...

New Moon, Creative Sparks, and Old Friends

Getting deep into Autumn – reset button

Amazing eclipse energy! This class is an intention, and today, while visiting a friend in Sedona, I will further my intention ritual. Pumpkin carving with friends will become a ritual. I viewed the sun and moon through two different telescopes during the eclipse. In the first the sun looked white and the moon dark grey. Along the edge of the moon I could see ripples in the surface. Craters! And I could see sun spots. What are sun spots? The surface of the sun is like fire, but there are spots there. The second telescope had a different light spectrum, and the sun was red while the moon was black. On the edges of the sun I could see solar flares! They looked like swirling red smoke. The moon set off my moon 6 days early. OK. Maybe I am on track now with the new moon. The energy around the eclipse felt compressed, like the light. I’ve been needing a lot of rest – yet when I am resting I feel restless. My dreams that night warned me not to get caught in webs of despair, I need to be careful who I let into my life. Some people cast far-reaching spells. I know who I need to let go of. Karmic, lifetimes. The contracts are null and void.
