You’ve probably had those moments or passages — the ones where you feel like someone or something has suddenly put shrink-wrap or a straitjacket on your life (and in your mind), making it hard to breathe and offering what seemed... Continue Reading →
The momentum resumes. Or some of it, anyway, with Jupiter leading the way.
Here’s a fresh update on the ‘great benefic’, the Keepers of the Flame, and the Phoenixing Mission … for those who choose to dive in and rise to the occasion.
Big Love (and courageous Phoenixing),
“If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you.”
~ Gospel of Thomas, Saying 70
“The hope of the world lies in the restoration of the ancient magic that is part of your lineage.” ~ Steve Nelson

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.
First, The Service Thing. Then the Gen-X Phoenix Thing, though non-Gen-Xers may well recognize some…

It’s a fine time to re-feature this rather dry-witted, Saturnian insight from Jung on Separating from the Herd.
It’s nicely attuned to this Friday Sagittarius New Moon and new lunar cycle (neatly trined Uranus in Aries, igniting those rebel-sparked ‘fiery arrows’ of stirred-and-centered vision … are you noticing them as they arise?), and for stirring the vision-cauldron for the months and year ahead.
For a few more themes aligned to the current archetype-energies, vision-quest impulses, and possibilities stirring around and within us, check out the recent post and the insightful and ‘co-lucid’ comments, Rebels and Mystic Sells (and related articles that pop up in the links).
The Trickster and rebel-system-agitator (Uranus-Prometheus) is afoot, but so is the Master Teacher (Saturn in Sagittarius).
Aquarians will recognize the weird, unlikely collaboration of this duo, as Uranus/Prometheus and Saturn are the co-rulers of Aquarius. But at the early cusp of the Aquarian Age, we may all be feeling such stirrings and the agitation of creative friction.
Together, Uranus and Saturn are now holding the torch to illuminate and spark the fiery arrows of the vision quest we’ll undertake in the coming months and year, and to transmute … that’d be reduce to ash … the energy of the calcified beliefs or ‘cultural norms’ that are past their expiry date and have gone sour, rancid, or downright toxic.
‘Tis the season.
• What purpose clues, vision stirrings, and far-off-horizons call to you?
• Where will you aim your ‘fiery arrows’ for the coming vision quest journey?
• How will your Phoenix rise over the coming year?
To gain fresh clarity & spark a sense of momentum — schedule a “Commit to Progress” coaching trio or consultation series.
Big Love and Happy New Moon in the meanwhile,

“The words “many are called, but few are chosen” are singularly appropriate here, for the development of personality from the germ-state to full consciousness is at once a charisma and a curse, because its first fruit is the conscious and unavoidable segregation of the single individual from the undifferentiated and unconscious herd.” ~ Carl Jung, The Development of Personality
This is what, in the Hero and Heroine’s Journey, is known as answering the call, which takes the journeyer or heroine, “out of the society that would have protected them, and into the dark forest, into the world of fire, of original experience,” as Joseph Campbell mused.
It’s a powerful notion, and if you’ve answered the call and left the interpreted path

Music, inspiration, vision, and dream -- and other domains of The Muses -- are very much in sync with the Neptune archetype. The discipline to put those inspirations into action syncs with Saturn. So it's fitting to share a bit... Continue Reading →
New Moon, New Stories ... or the possibility seeds for just that, any time we're in need of the good remedy of rekindled vision. Our dominant stories can either grind us down and suck the lifeforce right out of us,... Continue Reading →
