Yule: Winter Solstice 2013

Tonight, for the Solstice and energy for the next six weeks, I pulled the Ace of Cups (from the Tarot of the Moon Garden deck). It was the perfect card for everything we discussed today, and the energy of this Solstice, which for me feels very Neptunian and dreamy and full of vast potential. The Ace of Cups is about symbolism and subtlety, depth of emotion, dreams, fantasy and imagination, and access to a sense of happiness, satisfaction and self-acceptance. Being in alignment with winter energy, where growth occurs underground, the opportunity that the Ace of Cups presents is inward, extensive, heartfelt, and below the surface. (For someone with four planets in Scorpio, I say, “Yes!”)

Happy Holidays! Life is good and sweet and full of potential. Remember to do something you love every day.

Om shanti.

Reflections on – Going Deep, Sojourn at the Underworld

Some of our big questions are, “Where do we find our power in this society without losing our humanity, creativity, sexual energy, time for love, personal relationships and nature? How do we heal trauma so that we may experience our lives fully in the moment? How do we survive financially without trading over or losing our power?”

Now I am feeling happy and energized to get back to work on our writing. I spent the weekend in the wilderness with my partner where we enjoyed one another and the world around us. I felt safe and relaxed, and finally caught up on sleep! And I breathed fresh air, and sat by a fire, and spent prolonged periods in the moment – marveling at the beauty of the stars, at the sound of water and birds and grasshoppers, and at the love and appreciation of another human being.

Sparking Creativity on the New Moon

For three weeks, we’ll explore integrating intentions and the mind/body with movement, meditation, and daily writing exercises. Why three weeks? Because three is a lucky number, we’ll explore each of the seven chakras for three days a piece, and, I’ve heard that it takes 21 days to instill a habit. If you want to write, this is a great way to start a daily practice.
