Welcome to the year of the High Priestess! 2018 is sure to be significant in our ability to realize self mastery and excellence. I have been divining the daily omens for the months of 2018 and it is clear there is major bird medicine this year as well.
The winged ones come from the direction of the East, the wellspring of Air and inspiration. Augury is a practice of divining of birds. Many traditions around the world view birds as messengers of the gods, teachers, guides, guardians, counselors, healers, clowns, peacemakers and meteorologists.
There are so many astrological themes at play for 2018 and I'll share highlights of those with you in next week's ezine. In the meantime, if you're considering the the Saturn Sessions I'm booking up for the next two weeks. Email me to set up yours!
I've just returned from a short journey to Florida to visit my paternal lineage. Given that Saturn is about to enter my house of roots, home, family and the past I was not surprised to kick off 2018 in a land that holds many of my subconscious memories.
I came back with a deep peace and love for my past, including some of my greatest suffering and trauma. I am so grateful for all of my experiences in life, including the really challenging times. Getting to this place has been a true process of sitting with ancestral grief and I feel complete and whole in new ways.
I also had the gift to meet with two of my elder friends, each whom I have know for over two decades, and both whom divinely attuned and priestesses in their own right. This too was a balm for my heart. I believe this gift to decode my past offers an opportunity in the ways I work with this beautiful community!
My commitment to personal self mastery in 2018 is about going deeper within my field of studies, particularly astrology. I am about to begin a Master's of Arts program in Cultural Astronomy and Astrology. My heart is so ready for this deep dive into the history of divination, the stars and the sacred sites of our Earth. I am feeling how these threads of consciousness will weave into future pilgrimages, retreats and gatherings.
