Dealing With Sanctimonious A**es (And What We Can Learn From Them)

Yes, I do mean what you think I mean by "sanctimonious a**es." It made sense to get right to it, rather than hedge with more gentle, round-about language, since I noticed a theme arising. 'Tis the season, in line with... Continue Reading →

In Dark-of-the-Moon-esque times, we rest into and align with the very Lunar, receptive, reflective energy of the coming New Moon in the very waters ruled by Luna. And then some.

February Mysteries: Candlemas Hora and Bhrìghde’s Creative Well.

"There is mystery at the heart of what holds us together, expressed in shared symbols, stories and experiences." ~ Brigidine Sisters We enter into the Mysteries of Imbolc, Candlemas, or Fèill Bhrìghde. As I've mentioned in previous musings, Imbolc-Candlemas has... Continue Reading →

Mars: Power, Purpose and Shadow-Stuff

Energies of Now: Mars Forward, Energy Resurfaces

Mars, the planet and archetypal energy of raw life-force, brash Yang, passion, and momentum stationed direct after its retrograde vision-quest cave-time that started in mid-April. In mythology, the only time Mars did cave time was when he was with his... Continue Reading →

Big Love (and courageous Phoenixing),
Jamie

As Jupiter continues to emanate its expanding archetypal-energy essence from the earthy-Feminine Virgoan fields,we may find remedy for what ails us (and culture) in the authentic service of the ‘my cup overfloweth’ variety.

Or by Phoenixing, but more on that in a bit.

Energies of Now: Your Odyssey and Neptune (and Pals) Magic

The Energies of Now are taking on more Fire, where we’ve had an ocean of Water in recent weeks, though the sensitive, watery, tidal essence of the Neptunian-Piscean is still very much in play.

That said, it’s good to note that Fire and Water create steam, or hydro-thermal baths, or boiling water, or doused passion, etc. … actually, and metaphorically speaking.

So lest we Go All Mars (Fire) and bubble over, or get too steamy (in less than helpful ways), or feel like there’s still a wet blanket on our energy and passion, here’s an Energies of Now update.

Fire and Water will continue to be foremost elements in the Energies of Now, so this is a timely reminder … and an Orienteering clue-guide as well.

What’s bubbling for (and in) you?

Read on, and see what stirs into your awareness.

Wishing you happy and wise navigating as we ready for a new season … and a new (astro and seasonal) year’s Vision Quest and Hero/ine’s Journey.

Odyssey
noun od·ys·sey ˈä-də-sē

: a long journey full of adventures

: a series of experiences that give knowledge or understanding to someone

1:  a long wandering or voyage usually marked by many changes of fortune

2:  an intellectual or spiritual wandering or quest (Merriam-Websters Dictionary)

Sounds like life, doesn’t it — the long journey full of adventures, changing fortunes, new understandings, and gravitas-creating wisdom?

Or so we would hope, in any case.

We’re each on our very own Odyssey, and we’re on a collective Odyssey, too, in these wild and wily transformative times.

The mythic-astrology language for the archetypal energies at work now includes:

Neptune in Pisces,

• Uranus in Aries,

• Pluto in Capricorn — and their epic ‘square’, waning but still in effect, and

Imbolc – Reconnecting with Bhrìghde’s Creative Well

There is deep wisdom in aligning with the energy and spirit of the season ... of Nature's rhythms, with which are bodies are strongly evolved to orient towards (or suffer from the cultural dissociation with Natural rhythms!). There's also a wisdom and mythic quality associated with Imbolc, and other important archetypal energies and milestones as the wheel of the year turns. What inspiration and deep restoration awaits you at this time of the year ... or any time that Imbolc-Bhrigdhe wisdom might spark the fires of inspiration within you?

Happy Holy Days: We All Start Out Knowing Magic

The Nativity by the Danish Artist Carl Heindrich Bloch (1834-1890).

As we near the gateway to these year-end Holy Days, I’m wishing you a magical and wondrous Solstice, Christmas, and holy days passage, however you celebrate them.

Remember, too: We’ve got a Christmas Day Full Moon adding both illumination and energetic-psychic voltage, so may we all go gently, easily tend (and manage to keep) our center, and be filled with the greater joy and blessing of this time of the year.

And just in case you need some ‘on the fly’ restoration and handy tips for keeping your center amidst the whirl and swirl?

You’ll find a generous supply in the Resources for Empaths & Sensitives series, and the new Chaos Surfer’s Medicine eBundle in the ‘Current Specials’.

Lots of love,

“We all start out knowing magic. We are born with whirlwinds, forest fires, and comets inside us. We are born able to sing to birds and read the clouds and see our destiny in grains of sand.

But then we get the magic educated right out of our souls. We get it churched out, spanked out, washed out, and combed out. We get put on the straight and narrow path and told to be responsible. Told to act our age. Told to grow up, for God’s sake.

And you know why we were told that? Because the people doing the telling were afraid of our wildness and youth, and because the magic we knew made them ashamed and sad of what they’d allowed to wither in themselves.”

~ Robert R. McCammon, American Novelist, Boy’s Life (1991)
