Scorpio Halloween
Feeling powerless can be the first step toward surrender

The drawing here illustrates a very important message relating to this Scorpio New Moon. - - - Some things are more powerful than we are. As human beings we come upon certain things that cause us to feel powerless. It’s as though life says, “You may not go there,” or regardless of our fear, “You must go there.” Do we push against the river or do we surrender to the flow of life?

The figure in the drawing represents our fear of surrendering to something more powerful than we are, something that is totally out of our control. To our credit, we find ourselves conquering life’s challenges and passing through the gates again and again, and rather than battle to enter, we come to realize that we simply needed to be washed through. With the death of the lower self, we discover that once again we are renewed. The evolutionary dance continues between our desire to be a separate being, maintaining our control, and our desire to surrender and merge with Source. It continues until we have exhausted our desire to be separate.

New Moon in Libra October 2011

Libra ScalesIt always boils down to balance with Libra.

How can I maintain my personal balance? What is needed in my life in order for me to stop the internal seesaw between yin and yang, right and wrong, going with mauve or lavender, independence or partnering? We are constantly shifting our energy as we seek harmony and balance in our environment.

Our desire to feel balanced with others is our desire to feel balanced with ourselves. When we are too dependant on others for balance, we are in a state of co-dependency. Our obsession with others and how they are feeling or what they are thinking moves us off balance and into a state of flux. Every day we practice the art of balance in our relationships with others. Here we learn to trust that when we are in a state of equipoise, our relationships are more fruitful.

Libra desires to partner in love. Looking deeper could this desire ultimately be the soul’s memory of union with Source?

New Moon in Virgo September 2011

Sunday August 28, at 10:04 PM CDT

Virgo is ruled by Mercury so it’s a mental game long before it becomes heart ruled.

“This is who I am. But oh I could be so much more.” “This is what I did. But oh I could have done so much more.” “Yes the tree is pretty, but look at that dead limb, on the right side, next to the almost dead one, no a little to the left.” Sound familiar?

On one hand Virgo is the most desirable of signs for it pushes us to evolve and become all that we are destined to be. On the other hand Virgos drive for perfection can be crippling, leaving us with feelings of failure and shame. “It’s the right thing to do.” “I should.” “I shouldn’t.” “I should have.”

One of my teachers has likened Virgo to a caterpillar that, as it’s walking, suddenly thinks, “Leg #42 isn’t working right.” Up until that time it was doing fine, but as the caterpillar gets picky about leg #42, everything goes to hell in a hand basket. Suddenly all legs become tangled. The caterpillar has no clue of the beautiful butterfly it inherently is. Right now its only concern is how messed up leg #42 is. It has completely lost sight of the process. Often there is blame and shame associated with this.

Self ReflectionIt is a long, long road to actualization. Spirit is still perfecting. Why would we think we need to be perfect? New nebulas are exploding as we speak. I’d say even the universe is still in process.

It can be debilitating to keep every leg moving just so, every hair in place, every wrinkle smoothed, or every hammered nail flush to the board.

Shall we move into the higher expression and the blessings of Virgo? In an attempt to become all that we can be, we have a built-in Virgoan spark that creates a need to serve others, in some way. Most of our service-oriented individuals will have strong Virgo tendencies, and God bless them.

New Moon in Leo August 2011

The new Moon of August occurs at 1:39 am on Saturday, July 30 and is in the sign of Leo. During the period of 8 hours after the new Moon we have the creation point of the new Moon cycle. This month we use this time to set soul intentions around the archetype of the energy of Leo. This process works up until the end of the 2nd day. Sure, we can set intentions any time of any day, for anything we like. But when you wish upon a star, the most potent time is when you see it arcing through the sky.

We’re all in the process of becoming. We want to feel alive and useful, complete and in love with life. We want to feel that we are blessed to create each day with joy and in some fun way contribute to those we love. We want to be joyous in our work, and within the community of souls that contribute to the big, big picture.

Surrender to Joy
I surrender today. Use me as you will so that I may know joy.

New Moon in Cancer July 2011

July’s new moon occurs on Friday, July 1, 2011 at 3:53 am CDT.

Somewhere in your astrological chart the archetype of Cancer expresses. There are twelve houses and twelve signs. Cancer’s in there somewhere for each of us because we’re all an amalgamation of the twelve energies of the zodiac and the gamut of those energies. So when you hear yourself say, “I don’t get along with........ (Fill in the sign), know it’s a part of you that you don’t get along with.

Cancer is ruled by the Moon. The Moon shifts into a new sign every couple of days, and Cancer moods follow right along. The mood may be up when the Moon is in Sagittarius but you can bet the mood changes when the Moon is in say, Scorpio.

Your Moon wants to feel safe. That’s a quality of the Moon regardless of its sign. But today we’re focusing on a Cancer new Moon – so double whammy on that desire to feel safe and secure. During this new Moon of July 1, we’ll set intentions that deal with our emotional safety, what I call the heart-home.
