On last night’s The Soul’s Journey I explored the basic meaning and challenge associated with each of the 4 midlife transits that define a window of time that has people ages 36-44 checking in with how life is going and, often, changing things to make it more meaningful and happy.

Special attention is given to the Pluto square, when transiting Pluto reaches a 90-degree aspect to a person’s natal Pluto. The person finds fears seeming to manifest or threaten to come true, making it a major life event that asks us to decide if we are going to survive our fears and thrive.

Also discussed are Neptune square Neptune, Uranus opposing Uranus, and Saturn opposing Saturn.

Subscribe to the podcast in iTunes here to hear the episode and gain understanding about what humans in midlife are experiencing with these transits.

Join me live each Wednesday at 7pm Pacific on CTR! Most weeks I take caller questions, giving you a chance to get my insights for 5 minutes or so on what’s going on in your life.

Other upcoming events:

Energy/Emotion Clearing Event
August 31, 2013 from 3-4:30 pm Pacific time. A live call during which I’ll channel Ascended Master Djehuty and go into a deep place to clear energies and emotions from you that you no longer need. The aim is to free you from old, stagnant energies and the input of others that you have absorbed so you can live the life you’re trying to live, not simply repeating the past. This clinic will also help clear energies and emotions that can later manifest as health issues if not dealt with – deeper and more far-reaching in its effects than our usual Full Moon channeled events.

Transit Lab: Uranus Conjunct Descendant, Neptune Square Neptune, Mars Square Mars

Tuesday, August 20th, 2013 | Aries, Astrology, Chiron, Compassionate Awareness, Eris, Mars, Neptune | Comments Off

A long time ago I used to do a semi-regular blog series called Transit Lab wherein I explained a transit of my own life in terms of what I was experiencing. The point was to shed light on how certain transits can manifest based on consciousness level and then in some part also to make me feel better or amuse myself, depending on if the manifestation was annoying or fun.

With Uranus conjunct my Descendant (DSC) in Aries, with Chiron and Eris right there, I’ve had some stuff in relationships to clear and clean up. In some cases it’s been about an existing relationship and in others about how I function within relationship in general. As Uranus neared my 7th house a conversation with my partner about the possibility of exploring an open relationship matured and we decided to open things up. Months prior I had met someone where there was a mutual attraction and in late May of this year – right when Uranus was doing the conjunction thing to the DSC – I began seeing that woman.

I had thought that the Uranus call might be about me not putting all of my expectations on one person – my partner – and perhaps dating two people. Before I go further I want you to check your assumptions, fears, and judgements about open relationships and polyamory. It’s not about any of the things you might be afraid it’s about – it’s about loving more than one person, about being loving with more than one person. It’s not a ploy or gambit to have more sex (and if you think this then pls go read a book on polyamory to get that out of your head).

But it turns out that what was more important than dating this 2nd woman – than opening up my existing relationship – was needing to stop it because of the issues that came up and made it suck. I’ve frankly never had such an awful time with another person as our stuff was triggered and we tried to learn to communicate effectively with each other. Even as it was a growth dealio I really didn’t dig having someone’s ungrounded and often unfounded anger thrown at me as a weapon.

So Uranus to my Aries DSC turns out to be a call to cease putting up with other people’s ungrounded anger. Three times in about 6 weeks I had this woman’s anger thrown at me and I was indicted for Doing Something Hurtful to Her – very dramatic. And at each turn she proved unable to give me the benefit of the doubt, which for me is the foundation of being loving to others. What I mean is that if you are hurt by something I do or don’t do please assume that I did not intentionally set out to hurt you – please assume that there’s a misunderstanding, miscommunication, or a need to get more specific about something. Please assume I’m on your side and don’t vilify me before you find out what happened.

But the benefit of the doubt wasn’t there and I couldn’t get it from this person even after explaining it and asking for it. So that is fundamental to me. I don’t fault the other person for a bunch of things but I recognize that we were not on the same page. As it is I’m not willing to try to work out anything with her or work through what hurt her enough to make her lash out at me as a villain because the energy of tantrum is in place and emails from her have been getting nastier. The last one was full of expletives – clearly not someone I should interact with in the first place, but I had to find that out through this process. Uranus coming to the DSC asks that you free yourself from relationships and motivations to relate to others that make you feel trapped. You’re doing it right if you’re stopping doing something stupid and destructive.

The bit about Neptune square Neptune is that my natal Neptune in the 2nd house is being pressured through this square from transiting N. to get more about what is essential to me regarding my value system, self-worth, and skills (2nd house issues). Over the last week or so I came to see that I’m not simply willing to engage with people throwing ungrounded, irresponsible anger at me and making me wrong for what they have co-created with me. Being responsible for your experiences means owning that you have co-created something with another, not making that other wrong and lashing out because you are in pain. It’s low-level and not evolved enough – I can’t get mad at myself for not knowing better. Obviously I’ve lucked out when it comes to my partner because we have amazing communication skills. We do it right and I know that I have some skills – I’m seeing my Neptune in the 2nd and realizing that I actually have strong interpersonal communication skills.

This relates to Mars square Mars because today I took the opportunity to cut things off for good and not even try to hash out what went wrong – no, it’s done. Finished. Over. No more tantrum, no more being indicted without understanding or clarity. With Mars square Mars the caution is to avoid impulsive action but it’s a good day to trim from your life what you know is wrong and harmful.

sagfmAscended Master Djehuty (a.k.a. Thoth, St. Germain, and Merlin) was on hand last night to talk about ways of knowing regarding the Sagittarius Full Moon. He lead us through a process to release blocks to trusting intuition and to becoming our own guides.

You can get the MP3 for the same donation as if calling in live ($10-25) and the effects are just as strong on the MP3. His level of consciousness is captured in the audio file and you can go through the meditation with him to clear energies that don’t work for you.

Special emphasis on this call is on the 2nd, 3rd, 5th, and 6th chakras. Specific affirmations to release stagnant or borrowed energies, attitudes, emotions, and beliefs centering on these energy centers are employed.

As usual Djehuty provokes thought and helps us heal and raise our level of awareness.

You can get the MP3 via this link – it takes you straight to PayPal. Contact me at (213) 925-6019 to arrange for payment via credit or debit card or check. Once I see the donation I’ll send you the link to download the MP3.

We do these each month. If you want to evolve now I recommend tools, insights, and energy from Djehuty!

Transit Lab: Moon conjuncts Neptune square Neptune

Saturday, April 6th, 2013 | 5th House, Astrology, Neptune, Transit Lab | Comments Off

It’s been a couple of years since I’ve remembered many dreams. Meetings with guides of various kinds however I often remember well into waking. This is from this morning:

I am in a Sprouts grocery store (a local chain) in the check out line.  The man in line behind me and I begin to speak.  He is tall, well over 6 feet, and has a beard.  Dressed casually.  I have a vague hint that he seems familiar.  I feel that I need to talk to him more after we are each walking away from the store and to our cars.

I am then somehow in his huge home.  Friends and I have gone there and it is to be a short visit to pick something up or leave something.  I see him briefly and now he has no beard and I am entirely sure that I have seen him before.  I think he must be someone well-known and I decide to ask his wife.  He goes elsewhere and I don’t see him again.  I tell her I hope this is not inappropriate but I feel I’ve seen her husband before and ask from where I might know him.  She steps down from a few stairs up until she is on the step above me.  She is stunning.

She is kind and talks with me for a few minutes.  Two infants are on a couch behind us, with their backs to us.  One is Caucasian and one is brown, genders indeterminable from this angle.  As we talk her face appears as painted in blues and white, reminding me of a modernist painting.  At one point she gets close to my face not in an intimate move but it seems that it is about getting her mouth close enough to my face so that I know that she can devour others, perhaps just men – I don’t know.  But I am clear that she can help me understand who her husband is and I do not feel threatened. › Continue reading

Decoding Neptune: How Do You Know What’s True?

header_home1On some recent episodes of The Soul’s Journey radio show I’ve explored aspects of living a Neptunian life in conscious ways. I’ve done that in part because living the life/working the job that I do (they are essentially the same) I have to work through Neptunian fog on a regular basis. Things can get confusing both in non-mental info sources surrounding a person as well as our normal human tendency to trust what is shiny because we’d like that it turn out to be true.

I often use the image of fog. Neptune presents a fog and we have to learn to see through it. Things that are or might not be true surround us and we have to learn to discern what is true so we don’t deceive ourselves, fall for illusion, and/or get lost.

We love falling for what seems true and can get ourselves in tail spins trying to discern the actual truth.  That is, once we find out that the thing we fell for isn’t in fact real. How to get through this?

We have to train ourselves to live with Neptune in conscious ways. I reject the idea that we can’t really talk about or understand Neptune, an idea far too prevalent in astrology. It’s floating around out there because our Mercurial minds cannot grasp what the Neptune thing is all about and so they essentially throw their arms up in the air while making it seem like Neptune is inscrutable.

I can assure you that Neptune is knowable.

The fog that comes and goes with Neptune serves the purpose of inspiring us over time to learn to look through and beyond it.

How to do this, you ask? You have to learn to live with your own Neptunian self while staying grounded and clear about what is really happening.

February 3rd begins my Intuitive Skills Development class in which you will learn about your non-Mercurial ways of knowing, including Neptune. The course is a tour through your psyche and consciousness – and therefore your energy field – that will teach you to deal with Neptune in a way that allows for your own personal evolution of consciousness.

Tools and perspectives I’ve gained, learned, developed, and practiced over the last decade – since my intuitive opening/awakening – will be brought in as well as meditation with and energy work by Ascended Master Djehuty, a.k.a. Thoth, St. Germain, and Merlin. I channel him on a regular basis and together we will work with you to clean up things in your field (memories, beliefs, and karma) that keep you from knowing and/or trusting your intuition.

I took a class with similar goals some years ago and with this am adding in perspectives gained from mediumship work and my time with Djehuty. This is a chance for you to learn to get deeply grounded, open your heart, and learn essential tools to clear out your energy field now and from past experiences.

We are all challenged now to know what’s true and to trust our process for discerning it. Many are challenged now to learn to overcome their own fears and cease taking on the fears of others – this course will teach you the basics of these important skills.

Join me on February 3rd for this chance to upgrade your experience of being human and improve how your time on Earth unfolds.

Thoughts on MLK, Jr

Monday, January 21st, 2013 | Aquarius, Astrology, Books, Cancer, Compassionate Awareness, Karma, Neptune, Pallas Athene, Pluto, Retrogrades, Virgo | Comments Off

Today is his observed birthday, which is what happens when your memory is adopted or co-opted by a government and used as a work holiday. You’ve done something so cool that your birthday is now for everyone and the actual date you were born is secondary.

I use how he used and embodied his Pluto in Cancer/3rd house frequently as an example with clients learning to give themselves permission either to begin speaking out or to tell the truth (you can read my take on his soul, life, and death in The Soul’s Journey I: Astrology, Reincarnation, and Karma with a Medium and Channel).

King’s Plutonian empowerment journey with Pluto in the 3rd house required him to face the fact that what he thought and said needed to be aligned with what he perceived is truth. Over the course of many lives he would be both empowered and disempowered through learning, teaching, writing, and speaking. Some with Pluto in the 3rd are reeling from the multilife effects of being on one or both sides of the fence with lying, dishonesty, and the manipulation of information. This can lead in some lives to being determined to learn and speak the truth if one gives the self permission to do it. Because some of the disempowerment with Pluto in the 3rd house in some lives can be about being hurt or killed – overpowered in a Plutonian way – because of what you learn, write, think, or say.

mlk jrKing also had rx Neptune in Virgo in the 5th house, indicating that orienting his personal and creative expression toward something extrahuman was needed. There are some lives of this soul in which the humans make choices (Virgo) to gratify the ego (Neptune in the 5th) and when we do that it’s possible to leave out the spiritual quest and/or alignment with truth. In others lives with this signature he probably leans toward asceticism in an effort to get closer to God. Neptune square the nodes says that the soul’s manifested selves (ahem, humans) are exploring the right ways and reasons to do Neptune and how choice and ego factor into the equation. It’s retrograde and so he needed to invent his own Neptunian wheel about why and how to do it. In Virgo there is the element of choice, responsibility, and perhaps at times sacrifice – he is free to deny his spiritual self in favor of Earthly pleasures and in some lives he probably does. There’s nothing wrong with ego over the course of many lives we each learn that doing something extrahuman with ego is what truly satisfies us in the long run.

(We explore all sides of chart potentials over the course of many lives – I’m not trying to defame or deify him here!)

Pallas Athene in Aquarius/10th is also square the nodes. Pallas is in part about standing up for or defending something. In Aquarius that thing is and needs to be (and cannot help but be) different, counter to the prevailing norms, perhaps a bit rebellious or iconoclastic. This is happening in the 10th house and King needed to stand up for something in public that would likely be seen as rebellious and different.

In Seeing Through Spiritual Eyes: A Memoir of Intuitive Awakening you can read about my encounter with an angelic energy with which King was aligned. I had been meditating on a photo of King and this being came to contact me directly, and it was awe-inspiring. Through that experience I got a first-hand taste of what it means to align with truth and I think this was not only central to King’s journey with that Pluto and those squares to the nodal axis but also one of the most important things we can take away from his life.

It is an example of aligning with one’s truth to the point that universal, divine truth is welcomed in. When King opened his mouth he shared the vibration of truth and we need to let this inspire us to align our mouths and brains with our spiritual and heart centers.

I use him as a model to keep me mindful of trimming unnecessary thoughts and worry in favor of working in directions that serve all aspects of my being. I also encourage others to do the same through choosing increased awareness of the energies generated by their minds and how those are identified with and turned into verbal and other expression.

What would your life be like if your mind surrendered its skills and know-how to serve the love in your heart? It would be like King’s: you would inspire people when you speak and act because you would be doing so from your heart not in a purely emotional way but with your heart as the leader of all parts of you seeking to orient toward manifesting your own personal truth.

And if you choose to manifest it I guarantee that in the process you will be lead, drawn, and magnetized to opportunities that provide you time and space to do what is in your deepest self to do.

And speaking of deifying King, he in a sense deified himself by inhabiting his divine nature. That’s not about feeding an out-of-control ego but aligning ego with something outside the self in which one believes. Speaking the truth for him brought the wisdom of his soul to the surface. Each and every one of us can do the same thing! Don’t worship King or anyone else as a hero but take the example of the choices he made and learn to see how you can make empowered choices. Use him as an example and align with your own truth, letting it lead you to divine truth.
