The Radical Earth Revolution is Here

Ra Ma

The Radical Earth Revolution is Here
She is We.  She stands for all aspects of life, death and transformation.  She honors all races, genders, creeds, religions, beliefs and possibilities.  There is more than enough for each of us to sit together with tenderness and grace at the table of plenty.  May we find more ways to practice deep listening, to link arms, and to honor each other’s hearts.

Uranus in Taurus is anchoring a new generation of Earth Stewards
Uranus is a higher octave of Mercury, the way we communicate and travel.  The Uranian trickster being is all about change, freedom, rebellion and revolution.  It is the eccentric, the non traditional and the avant-garde. Uranus is the key to our illumination of our super intuitive and genius potential.

With Uranus in Taurus we are moving from yang fire to yin earth, from cardinal energy to fixed energy.  When the outer planets shift into new signs we welcome a new generational thread of light and consciousness.  Uranus brings the sudden and unexpected.  Radical change will emerge over the next 7 years. 

We must remember that Taurus governs finances, abundance, material security, physical safety, the environment, Mother Earth and all of her natural and precious resources.  Earth changes are likely to continue.  Uranus will be shaking the collective awake to shift our values.  Uranus will ask us:

What do we truly value as a culture?  
How may we be better Earth Stewards?  
How do we honor our Earth as the sacred space She is?  
How do we elevate our handling of waste? 
How do we honor the Elemental forces--our relationship with water, air, earth, fire, ether?

“. . .the highest nature of a woman is expressed through her power, her beauty, her grace, and her capacity to shape and transform humanity.”  ~ Yogi Bhajan 

Taurus ruled by Venus wishes for us to embody beauty.  Venus teaches that human liberty depends upon an intimate relationship to the natural world.  These energetics ask that we begin to master the Art of Living.  Elegance.  Venus teaches that beauty is fierce, invokes sovereignty, freedom, and an urge that we humans cooperate with the land.

Venus in Taurus inspires us to cultivate a practice.  This could include gardening, forest bathing, putting your bare feet in the Earth, giving offerings to Spirit, thanking your ancestors, practicing meditation, drinking lots of water, eating wild green foods, enjoying long walks, a gratitude journal.

Each offering I weave is a prayer to assist you in this journey.  There are only two weeks left to secure your space for Flowering with Fertility retreat at the Wheel of Bliss.  This is going to be a sweet, nurturing and soulful weekend in Hot Springs for us to come together in community.  The truth is we need each other more than ever.  When crafting these weekends, I carefully consider the balance of coming together as a group and having solo integration time, so that you may leave renewed and more inspired about life.  

Spaces are filling up for The Grail and the Goddess pilgrimage.  I continue to receive potent visions about how this pilgrimage will truly be a rebirth, a renewal for each woman. Each day will be an opportunity to honor Water—as within, so without.  True, deep healing is available for each one of us.  As we heal, our lineages heal.  As we heal, our Earth heals.  You may dive into the itinerary here.  

As this new generation is seeded with Uranian new beginnings, may humanity create radical self care as a foundation for the radical Earth Revolution that is growing roots.  May we rise up as passionate, prosperous Earth Stewards in reciprocal generosity to all that is.

Love your Mother

Ra Ma

This weekend the energy is supercharged as we experience the final degree of edgy Uranus in feisty Aries.  Pele’s manifestation on the Big Island has been a demonstration of what this looks like (please offer prayers and donate where you are able). Think back to Fukushima.  This horrific disaster happened when Uranus was in the last two days of watery Pisces before he moved to fiery Aries.  As the ruler of disruption and unorthodoxy, Uranus is here to flip things upside down and offer surprise.  And this surprise can sting when we are not in right stewardship with our Earth. 

Uranus rules us all things electric, so please take good care around any electricity over the next week.  At his final degree of Aries, Uranus is broadcasting the karmic completion of this 7 year cycle. We implemented the digital revolution and now it is time to get down and dirty.  Literally. Uranus in Taurus wishes to make our connection to the Earth honest and authentic. This Sunday Mercury the great communicator is conjunct the trickster Uranus offering a mic drop to seal this cycle.  Sunday is the day to celebrate your mother.  Please be especially kind in speech as it is a sensitive day for everyone. 

This Sunday I’m offering a special class, The Primal Power:  Honoring all life givers. Please join us at West Asheville Yoga for a Women’s (all who identify as woman are always welcome) Kundalini Yoga, Meditation and Gong Sound healing session 4-5:30 pm.  To get the full transmission on the Taurus New Moon I invite you to gather with us for the Taurus New Moon Women’s Wisdom Circle (sign up here as there are only a couple of more spaces available).  Each month I curate this space in my temple living room for women to come together to honor what has come before, to reflect, to digest, to shed and to prepare for the next cycle. This New Moon is going to be impactful and profound, awakening us on many levels.

What Taurus ultimately teaches us is the I HAVE presence.  What we have is more than our possessions. We each have our own unique talents and gifts that exceed beyond the material realm.  Taurus Season wishes for us to acknowledge these and to hone in on our self love practices. Uranus ingressing into Taurus is asking us to put down our phones for a minute or two, or three, or more and to connect in with Earth.  Taurus wants us to be here now, to enjoy and embody the riches and the prosperity of living on planet Earth. So much beauty and bounty is already available right now in our lives! 

When we hone in on what we have, that which is working, where the juicy passion is present, where the love exists, we create more of that which we seek.  In many ways, Uranus in Taurus is going to shake up our connection and relationship to the Earth to wake humanity up to be here NOW. Love yourself. Love your mother.  Love the Earth. Fuck, love ALL the women in your life. How revolutionary would that be? 

In honor of all of the creatrixes out there, I am offering two specials this weekend.  Use code LOVEYOURMOTHER to receive 20% off any apothecaryitem from now through Sunday night at 11:59 pm EST.  If you live in the WNC area and wish to pick up directly you may use code LOCAL to avoid all shipping costs. 

From now through Monday morning at 11:11 am I am offering a flash sale for my Flowering with Fertility retreat at the Wheel of Bliss.  Bring your mother, your friend, your daughter, your neighbor. For every two women that come together you each receive 15% off your investment for the weekend.  If you have already reserved your space, I will honor this retroactively if you find a woman to join you during this window of time.

As Uranus in Taurus is shaping our connection to the Earth to be most honest and more authentic may we rise together in sovereign solidarity of stewardship for the good of all.  Daily self love practices begin with putting your bare feet in the Earth, giving offerings to Spirit, thanking your ancestors, practicing meditation, drinking lots of water, eating wild green foods, enjoying walks in Nature and naming three things you are grateful for each day.

Solar Beltane

Ra Ma

Today we welcome another Venus day and tomorrow is Solar Beltane.  We are fully in the portal of the union of the Divine Feminine and the Divine Masculine.  This union is ultimately about self love.  As we fully love our divine selves, we bridge the feminine and the masculine within.  And we create a true ripple effect on planet Earth.

Beltane is known as ‘bright fire’.  When the land is blossoming, the promise of harvest is in the air as fertility and growth is abundant.  This is a time of creativity, sacred union and potential. To celebrate Beltane you may do a flower ritual, stay out all night, watch the sunrise and wash your face with the morning dew.  You may make love in wild places and spaces. Beltane is the time to conceive a new idea and birth it into being.  

The beauty of the Taurus Sun is calling us out of doors to frolic in the Earth, dig our toes and fingers in the dirt, observe the winged ones and feel the breeze on our skin.  After my morning sadhana, breakfast and time with family, I've begun a new ritual of gardening and this feels deeply soul nourishing.

I have a couple of special offerings coming up that I wish to extend an invitation for you to join, as I believe each of these offers a unique experience that will feed your soul.  

Friday June 8th is the opening circle of Flowering with Fertility, a weekend retreat where we will commune with the elements, rewild our astrological senses, deepen the bonds of sisterhood with sacred drama, craft ceremony and practice Kundalini yoga and meditation.  This weekend retreat will be restorative and enlivening!  All who identify as woman are welcome.  Please scroll down to learn more.  

There are about 5 spaces available on the Grail and the Goddess pilgrimage.  A whole new dimension opened up for me in regards to this journey this week.  What some do not realize is that to say yes to a pilgrimage like this means breaking through major subconscious blocks.  And I too go through this process.  I had a major breakthrough and it was so powerful to witness my process as a reflection of the process we will journey together.  True and lasting healing is available to each one of us on the pilgrimage--self healing, lineage healing and Earth healing.  Join us.  

Before you know it, we will welcome the Taurus New Moon.  There is much shaking and awakening that is coming.  Now is the time to ground and anchor to our Earth.  We are the Medicine.

Lunar Beltane Scorpio Flower Full Moon

Ra Ma

This Sunday we welcome Lunar Beltane with a Scorpio flower full lunation.  The cosmic energies are diving us deeper and increasing in intensity. I will offer a special Women’s Full Moon class in honor of Lunar Beltane this Sunday 4-5:30 pm at West Asheville Yoga, so please join our community of all that identify as woman.  

Beltane is known as ‘bright fire’.  When the land is blossoming, the promise of harvest is in the air as fertility and growth is abundant.  This is a time of creativity, sacred union and potential. To celebrate Beltane you may do a flower ritual, stay out all night, watch the sunrise and wash your face with the morning dew.  You may make love in wild places and spaces. Beltane is the time to conceive a new idea and birth it into being. 

The Full Moon is exact this Sunday at 8:58 pm and comes on the heels of an intense Mars Pluto conjunction that we have all just experienced this week.  This conjunction forced us to question everything and its purpose, to look at the shadows and then to look even deeper, and to consider how our lower will works, or perhaps resists the higher will.  Insights will continue to be illuminated as the moon waxes to full. We must remember that we are still under the powerful Aries New Moon lunation, the true beginning of Spring, which was p o w e r f u l and offering genius solutions to reset, renew and rebirth.

e71a61ef366efb910f9bf6aa0dae0121.jpg

We have been in a window of review and understanding this past week, so delays are to be expected with both Pluto and Saturn retrograde in Capricorn.  This Scorpio Flower Full Moon will continue to knead the Pluto and Mars energies, and with Saturn activated by both the Moon and Sun we are truly once more asking the thematic questions of 2018:

Who am I?  
What do I do?  
What do I really do?  
How do I maneuver time and space?  
How can I shift to be more efficient with my energy?  
Where do I need to say yes?  
Where do I need to say no?


This lunation is also anchoring the Uranian energy from the Aries New Moon, which offered fresh electrical concepts that we are  now blooming into a deep resonate shift in consciousness. We are in the midst of our great cosmic evolution, and this requires diligence to the path.  It is a process of cultivation a dance of the lower will and the higher will. If we refuse this dance, it may be immensely painful. This Scorpio Full Moon wishes us to do the deep soul work, to question everything, and to find beauty in this process. 

This astrology inspires my memory of a film my husband and I viewed last night which closed out the Jewish Film Festival here in Asheville.  Itzhak is a film about Itzhak Perlman, the musical prodigy who you most likely know for his otherworldly ability to play the violin.  Somehow I never knew he suffered from polio which affected his ability to walk.

I was thinking during the film how although the polio stunted his ability to move his legs by running and dancing, the gift in this is that his vital energy was able to shift from his legs, to the brain, arms, hands and fingers.  I wonder had he not suffered from polio if he would have mastered the violin.  Perhaps. Perhaps not.  However his story offers an instance of how one may find beauty in the pain. 
 

Truth as salve

Ra Ma

I invite you to dive into this video: Truth as Salve.  For these times we need a salve for all the wounds coming up to the surface.  In this video I explore Truth as a salve, sovereignty, healing grief, Chiron ingressing into Aries and why you should be crafting a vision board this weekend if you already haven't.  I invite you take about 18 minutes out of your day to connect deeper as together, we are building a new paradigm that serves all.  Also, I mention the pilgrimage I am stewarding this August.  You may learn more about the Grail and the Goddess by visiting this link.

🌹13: code for a paradigm shift

Ra Ma

 Falling in love with Gaia  Glastonbury 2017 pilgrimage  on a Venus Day standing atop Burrow Mump, a place where the Mary and Michael ley lines intersect.

Falling in love with Gaia Glastonbury 2017 pilgrimage on a Venus Day standing atop Burrow Mump, a place where the Mary and Michael ley lines intersect.

I believe Friday the 13th was hijacked many moons ago so that we feel an imprint of fear on this day.  In fact, so many sacred moments in time and spaces on our Earth were hijacked for these exact reasons. As we travel the terrain we find many churches on intersections of ley lines that were holy spaces for the old religions, tended with love and care.  Here in the United States many of our cities are built on Native American sacred grounds. We have been living under a culture amnesia and Uranus in Taurus (more to come in future Venusian love note editions) is about to wake us up in a fierce way.

As we shift the paradigm, may we welcome this day of the Goddess in a conscious way.  She is We, and all are welcome at the table of the Goddess. We are building a new paradigm that serves all.  

13 is significant to the Goddess as we have 13 moons each calendar year, and therefore menstruating women have 13 lunar cycles each year.  The blood transports our nourishment and our vitality, while containing the imprint of our personal stories. And like a woman shedding, the moon sheds.  This weekend we enter the Dark phase of the Moon, in preparation for the Aries New Moon Sunday night at 9:57 pm EST.

The Aries New Moon lives up to the imprint that each one of 2018 has offered thus far.  It is powerful and profound. Our intentions have the momentum of Mercury’s wings, as the hermaphrodite God goes direct this Sunday in Aries.  Also this New Moon has the powerhouse transpersonal planet Uranus in Aries tightly conjunct, shaking and waking us up to our destiny.

This lunar energy is about an inner revolution that we are being asked to seed as Chiron is in his final karmic degree of completion in Pisces.  Chiron will dip his toe in Aries next Tuesday April 17th. This is very significant, as we are in the cauldron of transformation, facing a tipping point in our ability to make great change, to go to the roots of our identities.  And we are sealing a 7 year cycle with Uranus in Aries. Since 2011 each lunar cycle in Aries have sparked a Uranian desire to become agents of radical change in our own lives, and this is the last opportunity to ride this energetic current for roughly 80 years.

Earlier this week, my friend Constance sent me a photo of this beautiful Passion flower growing on her land, in Luc Sur Aude, Southern France.  We will stay with her for a week on the Grail and the Goddess pilgrimage this August. Constance has over 300 acres of organic olive trees and an abundance of herbs including lavender, rosemary, and thyme.  When I met Constance we immediately felt a connection. She grew up in a Waldorf family and both of her parents are Eurythmists. She is an artist and very passionate about the stewardship of Mother Earth. 

At Castillou the rose is their symbol of sovereignty.  It is as if Mary Magdalene herself has brought us here.  It feels so appropriate that this Passion Flower burst into bloom this week and that Constance sent a photo of this flower.  Passionflower dissolves nervous tension and there is always a leap of faith required of each participant when she commits to join a global pilgrimage.  

All of the primal fears rise to the surface when you commit to great change and transformation. The primal imprints of fear, lack of self worth, and insecurities have the great opportunity of being stripped away during a life altering pilgrimage where you are removed from the day to day distractions.  And in these times, this work is necessary.

Passionflower essence invokes spiritual insight and I feel this essence goes hand in hand with the energies of the Aries New Moon.  We have the ability to anchor in a new foundation for the next 28 ½ days and through the Wheel of the Year, as this moon in the beginning of a new astrological year.  

My prayer is that each one of us may commit to living life from the highest integrity, so that we may consciously root a new paradigm for our generations to come.  The views of reality we are spoon fed through media are so old, so outdated, so stale, so apocalyptic, and humanity is so much more than these narratives

The Aries New Moon supports wishes around blazing new trails, authenticity, autonomy, courageous leadership, vitality and a healthy brain.  I invite you to write your intentions on the exact time of the New Moon--Sunday night at 9:57 pm or after. Write at least 2 and up to 10, and as you craft your words, consider more than just this lunar cycle, consider entirety of the next 13 moons.  If you are feeling the Call to join our Grail pilgrimage, scribe it to be so!  Email me for any questions you may have about our epic journey.  

Venusian New Moon blessings of prosperity and vitality,

Ra Ma

a compass of connection

Ra Ma

I am falling in love all over again with our Earth.  This past week I have spent more time with family, more time in my garden harvesting plants for medicine, and more time in Nature walking in the forest, bathing in running cold water.  As this week is coming to a close, I am knee deep in learning. I am writing to you in the midst of a four day workshop on Stone Medicine, sitting with Jeffrey Yuen, an 88th generation Daoist priest.  

I am digesting such high level information and what I find myself focusing on the most is perhaps clearly obvious.  Spirituality is based on cultivation, as any committed practice develops frequency. We only have something to offer, when we have spent time in cultivation.  Practice is everything, and cultivation is about authentically committing.  

Once again I am falling in love with the stones, and like any spiral I am finding myself at a different place on this journey of life.  At the age of 7 I lived in Germany and in school we quite often went on incredible field trips. I will never forget driving to Belgium to a museum to see large dinosaurs like T Rex and Brontosaurus reconstructed from their bones.  When I close my eyes, I can still see the way light entered through the windows and how the shadows cast in the spaces where light was hidden.

It was then I wished more than anything to be a paleontologist. However, what came home with me from the gift shop of the museum was a piece of amethyst the size of my palm.  After the museum we ate Belgian waffles from a stand outside and I began to make friends with my new stone.

Stones have been an essential part of my life.  I can mark almost any important moment in my life through a specific stone that someone has given me or that appeared in that time and space.  It was 2 years ago when I chose to consciously work with stone medicine as a part of my healing practice, and from there the Alchemy Sessions and the Ra Ma Kaur apothecary were born.  The medicine of stones is vast, deep and profound. However, like any path it requires cultivation.

Stones have the ability to be programed to store information that we may wish to access in future timelines.  Stones can be transformers, harmonizers, or assistants in our journey of life. We can relate to them as a geological nerd or a new age healer.  We can connect with them through their physicality, their energetics, their stories of lineage, or our intuition.

Ultimately what is the most important in our journey on this wild, beautiful Earth is the simple connection to Her, and stones remind us of this.  Stones are literally the roots, the foundation of all other medicine on Earth. As we connect to the Earth through the soles of our feet, we are activating a compass of connection.  We need the Earth and the Earth needs us. There is a mutual reciprocity that is essential to all life on this planet. We can see this reciprocity in other forms-- from parent and child, teacher and student, healer and client.  

The simple connection to our Earth is everything.  I invite you to explore this sacred connection to Earth simply barefoot and standing tall, lying on a blanket while blowing dandelion wishes with your child, or in quiet meditation. 

Finally I invite you to venture out tomorrow to the Burton Street Peace Garden's for their Early Plant Spring Sale.  We got a sneak peek this week and the stunning green magic is waiting to be rooted in your backyard!  Support your local community,  your pollinators and fall in love with the Earth while doing so!

a mystical pink moon

Ra Ma

0065febd-e2b4-45ec-b3ee-b261a45d452b.jpg

The Libran Pink Moon comes to a peak on Saturday morning at 8:37 am EST.  This is a time of culmination and fruition from the seeds we cast two weeks ago, with the Pisces New Moon.  However as life cycles and spirals we may look back to a year ago, to the Aries New Moon and the journey we have walked since then.

The Moon in “We are” Libra is seeking balance and justice while opposing the Sun in courageous “I am” Aries is here to emerge and express.  This lunation is showing us with clarity what is working and what is not working in our lives, particularly in our relationship to ourself and with others.  The archetypes of Venus and Mars are activated through the Libra and Aries lenses. Mars is very energized in this Full Moon so it’s essential we consciously work with our will, vitality, anger, rage and repressed emotions.

A theme of 2018 is that if it’s not a hell yes, it's a hell no, and that is highlighted with this Full Moon.  Chiron is broadcasting in his final degree of Pisces all that we need to complete as we begin anew in the shamanic fire walk of self expression.  This first full moon after the Spring Equinox invokes the Jewish festival of Passover and our current astrological alignments are ideal for the spirit of this festival.  

Through the cleansing of the hametz, which can be seen as the hot air of the ego and all that does not serve, we may create space for liberation in our lives.  We are consciously on a journey to move from the tight spaces, the places we box ourselves in emotionally, mentally, physically, socially, spiritually, and to create expansion.  However liberation is not enough without justice, peace and harmony. Through the Passover seder we embody the process of how we truly tell our journey, our stories. What we tell ourselves becomes what we magnetize.  Passover offers a moment in time to witness these narratives and then to edit and delete as we see fit.

f2928318-0d9f-4412-a8aa-82996300c938.jpg

This mystical pink moon is offering each one of us our own personal miracle.  As the buds on the branches emerge, an awakening of hope springs forth and the vision crystallizes with maximized potential.  A miracle is available for all that you wish to birth for the astrological year to come, and the Aries New Moon mid April is the springboard where you may leap.  For now, it is the time to witness, to cleanse, to shed and to conjure clarity.

As we are on this path of Victory we must ask ourselves, What am I willing to sacrifice?  As we channel the High Priestess, the Universal Priestess we invoke sovereignty.  A system of healthy habits to engage with each and every day is essential for our path's precision, ranging from yoga, meditation, walking, grounding, earthing, breathing, smudging, chanting, praying and gratitude.  

I invite you to join me for weekly Kundalini yoga classes, monthly lunar circles, a June weekend retreat and a pilgrimage to Southern France this August.  You may learn more by scrolling down.  I'm available for Astrological Divination sessions or Alchemy Sessions, where stone medicine and sound healing meet.  Each of these sessions offer clarity, support and sanctuary. 

the cosmic egg

Ra Ma

Our transition into Spring has been intensely healing.  You’ve most likely looked some of your greatest wounds in relation to Source square in the eye, and perhaps endured them in your body too.  The hermaphrodite messenger god is visiting the Underworld as we are sealing our Chiron cycle in Pisces. This retrograde Mercury is working hand in hand with both Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn to teach us about power, control and authority in our lives, offering many opportunities to test our anger, rage, will and vitality.  In addition solar flares have been affecting our energetic and physical bodies.

The season of rebirth and renewal is upon us. As we consider this Mercury retrograde and completion of Chiron in Pisces cycle, deep healing is available to each one of us.  Each of these shifts ultimately lead us to Self Mastery.  

unnamed.jpg

The egg is a symbol of rebirth and fertility in Nature.  We may meditate on the Cosmic Egg of Life, which represents the masculine and the feminine, light and dark, expansion and contraction, conscious and unconscious, continuity and balance.  Potential, seed and promise are ripe.

The Earth is awakening and we may consider geomancy, also known as the meridians of energy that run through the Earth. These meridians can be referred to as dragon paths, ley lines or fairy lines.  The dragon is a power animal, that teaches through love, how to follow your own path with courage. They force you to grow into your destiny and duties, from a lower plane to a higher plane of mastery. 

As you continue on your great dharmic journey of self mastery in this season of Spring, this is a lovely time to shed the things you no longer need, to let go and to make space for all that you are passionate about.  

Inviting more green foods into your diet is essential to move the liver from Winter. With the Chiron completion in Pisces, Mercury retrograde and a few more days of solar flares this is an ideal time to meditate, practice pranayam, spend time alone, day dream and heal.  Cold showers, baths and drinking lots of live water will assist with your integration.

To continue on course, you may remind yourself, I welcome all profound blessings

the universal priestess within

Ra Ma

Tomorrow’s New Moon aligns at 9:11 am 27° Pisces invoking the mystic, the artist, the healer, the channel and the Universal Priestess that lives within all.  The current tides are shifting the Wheel of the Year. We are ending an astrological year as we have our final dance in Pisces. 

The key feature of this lunation is a conjunction of the Moon and Sun to Chiron.  We are being asked to face our greatest wounds around separation from Source, which tend to manifest as addiction, escapism and powerlessness.  We are being offered a period of reflection of what we have learned over the past 7-8 years as Chiron is about to shift from Pisces to Aries. 

This is the last new moon in a yearly cycle with the last new moon conjunct Chiron in the last sign of the zodiac in the last house of the zodiac. . .What work do we still have to do regarding our personal and collective healing to fully awaken?  

The path is about feeling all that we have denied.  This is the time to allow the emotions to flow. Work with water and give thanks for the magic of this element.  Feel the pain and suffering of all that we have attempted to suppress, and feel how this is reflected in the way we treat our Mother Earth.  

29134017_10155475033083861_2575829962019831808_n.jpg

This lunar cycle offers deep healing, reflection and a space for great closure as we prepare for the Rebirth of Spring.  We have the ability to awaken the mystic, the divine healer and the Universal Priestess within.  On March 20 at 12:15 pm EST we welcome the Spring Equinox and the shift of the Sun into Aries.

Spring Equinox, also known as Ostara offers a time to invoke balance between the inner and outer.  Day and Night are equal reflecting a balance of the inner world with the outer world. Every action has a reaction.  The Cosmic Egg represents the male and female, light and dark, expansion and contraction, conscious and unconscious, continuity and balance.  We are the potential, the seed and the promise. The dragon energy is waking up.

Traditionally, offerings of food and milk are left for the fairies and other spirits who live in and around rocks and are responsible for the fertility of the land.  Sacred hilltops are visited and picnics are enjoyed.

I invite you to stay focused with dream seeding, play, meditation and rest to expand into a state of conscious awareness for this is the Year of the High Priestess, where Self Mastery and Diamond Mind Consciousness are attainable.

🌹 she is WE 🌹

Ra Ma

To all the midwives, the wombones, the wild hearted, the she wolves, the mystics, the medicine makers, the soil workers, the chantreses, the wise ones, the healers, the lovers, the teachers, the artists, the mothers, the daughters and our beloved crones--

She is WE.  She stands for all aspects of life.  And she knows how to doula death. She honors all races, genders, creeds, religions, beliefs and possibilities.  There is more than enough for each of us to sit together with tenderness and grace at the table of plenty.  May we find more ways to practice deep listening, to link arms, and to honor each other’s hearts.

Each and every day is International Women’s Day.  We birth the world into being and we priestess the times of death.  We are rising from an epoch of deep slumber. We are the paradigm shifters.  We are the ones we’ve been waiting for!  It is an honor to stand alongside you!

Venus works her magic so that each one of us clearly knows what we value.  Now the moon is waning and the season of Spring is almost upon us. This an ideal time to literally clean out our physical lives. . .our  closets, basements and cars.

My daughter and I spent two hours today driving to donate items to Safe Inc, an organization that is committed to breaking the cycles of domestic abuse and violence.  We could’ve easily donated our haul to the Goodwill, just 8 minutes down the road. However, I’ve heard many stories about clothing sent to South Africa, piling up and causing environmental waste while distracting from the local cultural economy.  My commitment to my values pulled me in another direction and I did this as an offering to the beauty of Venus and her sacred day. 

Do you remember last Fall, when Jupiter entered Scorpio?  Scorpio is the archetype of the scorpion, the snake, the eagle and the phoenix.  Scorpio wishes for us to know our depths, to know our ability to transform. Jupiter in Scorpio expands our knowledge of self and does so while offering us a rare opportunity to change, to improve, to better ourselves and others.

On Wednesday, Jupiter began to retrograde and is now taking us on a deep space journey.  We are time traveling back to December 11th 2017. It won’t be until July 10th that Jupiter will turn direct once more.  Each decision we have made based on our conscious evolution since last December is up for review and revision. Jupiter rules both Pisces and Sagittarius, so this transit is teaching us about the values of justice, truth, compassion and connection.

If we are willing to delve into the unconscious and explore the hidden shadows, we then have the ability to bring forth what is hidden from the recesses.  This deep work is supported by mystery studies, traveling to mystical places, consciously exploring shadow work, deep intensive therapy and intimacy practices with self and others.  This is the time to gather with your community in your sacred circles for a supportive descent.

As always, I am here to anchor and assist you on this journey.  I love supporting people one on one through astrological mentoring, soul coaching and alchemy sessions.  Next Thursday we gather in my temple living room to call in the Pisces New Moon.  Our first spiral of the Adi Shakti Coven is proving to be a supportive and safe circle to do the deep inner journey work of Jupiter in Scorpio.  Women are truly transforming their lives and it is awe inspiring! If you would like to be notified when the application process opens up for Spiral two, please message me.  In June I will offer a Welcoming Midsummer Retreatin Hot Springs. . .the details and the ability to sign up will be available next week! 

And the women are coming forth to answer the Call to walk Her footsteps on a deep ancestral healing pilgrimage in Southern France.  I invite you to step into the journey with me on The Grail and the Goddess. In the spirit of acknowledging the complexity of our times and the privilege some have more than others, I am grateful to offer one partial scholarship for a woman of color who wishes to join us.  If you feel this is you, email me directly to apply.  I will accept applications now through April 30th.

It is my deepest prayer to craft and curate these offerings to assist in your cosmic evolution.
