New Moon and Solar Eclipse in Leo – August 21, 2017
As many of you already know, we are having a Solar Eclipse TODAY which will be visible from 9 am until 1 pm from coast to coast in the USA…. something that doesn’t happen very often! In fact, the last one was in 1918 – 99 years ago. While there is a lot of excitement about actually “seeing the eclipse” my teaching today is about the internal processes that eclipse cycles activate and how to work within them.
Solar eclipse cycles can bring the promise of change, and the growth that real change activates. This kind of change can be both positive and negative, and it is usually an unexpected type of change – which is why there can be an inordinate amount of psychological fear connected with an eclipse cycle.
In Western Astrology, the eclipse will be in 28 degrees of Leo, and in Vedic Astrology, the eclipse is at 4 degrees of Leo and located in the Nakshastra – Magha. Which literally means “the mighty one” or “the great.” Magha is ruled by the shadowy spiritual planet Ketu which can bring in a tremendous amount of spiritual and mystical leadership.

Full Moon Thursday, January 12th, 2017
Happy New Year! Mercury went direct this past week, and a Full Moon happens Thursday, January 12th, I feel really excited about 2017 and all it will bring!

The Full Moon will be in the sign Cancer. This sign helps to remind us how to nurture and protect ourselves through the realm of feeling! You may find yourself “feeling” a lot in these next few days. That is awesome! This is a very powerful cycle to ask yourself what you “really need.” So….. what do you NEED?? Continue Reading
Are you going through a tough time right now? Do you have an obstacle that seems hard and difficult? Today’s Teaching is on the “Wisdom of Obstacles.”
What is an Obstacle and why do we need them?
An obstacle is something that obstructs or hinders any type of anticipated progress. An obstacle is the perception that something must be overcome and moved through.
Our society supports and rewards achievement and success. In order to feel that we have achieved, we must have an obstacle to overcome. Overcoming an obstacle builds character, strength, wisdom, and integrity. These are very profound qualities and very important, as well as essential to self-development. Continue Reading
Full Moon Lunar Eclipse August 18th, 2016
This morning (at 2:26 am PST) we had a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius. If you have planets in Aquarius or Leo this Eclipse will activate you. Aquarius is the astrological sign associated with humanity, brotherhood, friendship, rebellion, freedom, unconventionality and being a visionary. Leo is the sign of generosity, leadership, creativity, drama, play, enthusiasm, love and loyalty.
Today the Full Moon brings with it a Lunar Eclipse. Eclipse’s are shadow cycles that help provide information about what is happening right now, in the shadow. The definition of an Eclipse is “dim or hide and conceal”, or to render invisible by the elimination of light. So during an eclipse cycles many things can be brought to light, or may actually be revealed. Also be aware that some things can remain hidden, in the shadows. It is our responsibility to bring to awareness what shadow issues exist in our lives, and work to create more balance in our lives. Continue Reading
Mercury Retrograde In the Sign of Gemini ~ Monday May 17th, 2015 Mercury Direct Thursday June 11, 2015
Mercury, is going Retrograde in the Sign of Gemini on Monday, May 18th (6:50 PM PST) until Thursday, June 11th. Mercury is the planet that is associated with all types of communication, networking, thinking and socializing. It is primarily associated with the mind and everyday mental activity and the more subtle movements within our thoughts as they arise from our feelings.
What is a Retrograde Cycle?
It is a cycle is when any planet that (when viewed from the earth) “appears” to have stopped and is moving backward through the sky. After some time the planet then goes “direct” and is back onto it’s normal path. Every planet retrogrades except the Sun and the Moon. There are about three Mercury retrograde cycles per year.

New Moon Wednesday, July 15, 2015
New Moon Wednesday, July 15, 2015 at 6:30 pm — Full Moon Friday, July 31, 2015 at 3:43 am
Today we start a New Moon Cycle. New Moon cycles are the beginning of an Astrological Cycle that happens once a month. New Moon cycles are a great time to “start” a new project or initiate a new behavior or activity. This cycles occurs when the Sun and the Moon are (both) in the same Astrological Sign. The Sun and the Moon are in the Astrological sign of Cancer. This means the Full Moon will be in the opposite sign – Capricorn. The Full Moon will be on Friday, July 31st. When the Sun is in Cancer and the Moon is in Capricorn, (its opposite sign), we have a Full Moon.
A New Moon always starts with both the Sun and the Moon in the same sign, and a Full Moon Cycle happens when the Moon is in the opposite sign of the Sun.
What is a New Moon?
Every month we get the opportunity to feel the cycle of the Moon. The New Moon starts the cycle. The best way to work with the moons cycle is to start projects on the New Moon, and finish projects on the Full Moon. Continue Reading
