Summer Solstice


The stone stacking man and his work. I had Just witnessed him balance this stone. It was to crowed to get a photo but moments later I was able to capture his portrait with his stone while he proudly showoff post cards of his work.

Solstice is when the Sun Stands Still and Changes directions.The Stillness of this man and his work tell the Story of Summer Solstice. I had Just witnessed him balance this stone. It was too crowed to get a photo but moments later I was able to capture his portrait with his stone while he proudly shows off post cards of his work. This is cropped from the photo below. I planned both as I shot this I thought this one shot told the whole story. I promise go back and capture him in action.

The man standing among his own standing stones. Notice how short the shadows are this time of year. The Moon will be full this weekend as well. A Powerful time to be in nature and honor all our connections to the Earth and Sky!

May Day Can’t Come Soon Enough This Year!


Bright Rose of May offers a reminder of JOY!

Bright Rose of May offers a reminder of JOY!

We need May Day this year more then ever to remind us life goes on, blooms and dances even when there is sadness, tragedy or danger lurking…We Must Choose Joy!

Beltane / May Day — Wednesday 
 
The hills are greening, flowers bloom; there’s birdsong, nestmaking and gardens waiting for blessing. With the Maiden Earth in ovulation, creatures are enlivened, inclined to entwine! Warm hearted, we stretch in the sun, walk barefoot in the new grass, bear the spring rains with good cheer and gratefulness. Passions stir—flashes of sweet desire, hot lightning of anger, gusts of giddiness, heartbreaks of grief and fits of unbearable joy. How to meet these relentless tremors? Dance!

Year of the Serpent Has Arrived: Time to Shed Your Old Skin


Serpents are every where if you look.

Serpents are every where if you look. This is the Year of the Black Snake.

Happy Chines New Year.

Stephanie Austin Eco Astrologer writes:

Chinese New Year begins on February 10, 2013 and ends on January 30, 2014. This is the year of the Black Water Snake, symbolizing transformation and the power of the feminine. Black represents the Great Mystery, the unknown, and the unconscious. Water is the element of emotion, cleansing, and nourishment. The snake is an ancient symbol, long associated with goddess traditions, wisdom, and healing. Snake years represent a turning toward introspection, intuition, and dealing with feelings, fears, and self-mastery. This is a year of shedding old skins, releasing what is no longer in alignment with who we are and where we are going. For more, visit http://www.chineseastrology.com/2013snakeyear.html.

Happy New Era! Three Things We Can Lean From 12/21/12


My Mayan Calendar From Anthropological Museum of Mexico City

As an Astrologer I can’t let 12/21/12 go by without comment.

  • First of all I am so glad I am not struggling through Mexico City traffic to help save the world. But I am glad some folks are. Who will ever know, whether or not, maybe we are still here going about our daily life because of the many prayers and meditations taking place around the world today. I thank them.
  • Next and more importantly, I hope that this focus on this Winter Solstice for the whole world will have attuned we humans beings more closely to the cycles of nature, the stars, and themselves. Frustration, anger grow exponentially when we are out of sync with the seasons of the year and the seasons of our own life cycles.
  • As a planet we have had a shared experience that wasn’t a disaster. So far it is 2pm pst.  We all as a generation of people will probably have good stories about what we did or didn’t do on 12/21/12.

So as we move into what comes next pay attention to your heart while you set an intention for transformation of….fill in the blank.

Many Blessings

The Sun is Conjunct the Galactic center

Here is planetary wisdom from of my teachers Stephanie@ecoastrology.com

Important Dates:

December 11, 2012
Dear Friends,
This is a very intense week, and a very, very special time. The next new moon, this month, and this year mark a momentous turning point, the end of a 26,000-year cycle, known by many names: the Great Awakening, the Ascension, the Mayan End Times, the Hopi Fifth World, Christogenesis, Timewave Zero, and others. The number 12 symbolizes completion — the union of heaven and earth, sacred and secular. December 12, 2012 and December 21, 2012, the dates most often given for this evolutionary passage, do not mark the end of the world, but rather the initiation of a global shift, from living in duality and materialism to realizing our unity and divinity. The dates 12-12 and 12-21 mark the peak of two immense cosmic waves, which have been building for a long time, and whose wake will continue through the end of this year and beyond.
There is nothing to fear. Relax. Rest. Release. Receive. Remember. 
  • Relax in the knowing that you don’t have to do anything, that you always have choice. Do less and be more; the best “doing” comes from your “being”.

  • Rest into the loving support that is holding you and assisting you through this transition. Your guides and angels are on standby, waiting for you to call on them. You only need ask.

  • Release whatever is weighing you down and holding you back. Be in the present moment. Forgive others. Forgive yourself. Bless it all. Be grateful for what you learned.

  • Receive the light, the love, the information that is pouring down from the heavens. The downloads may take a while to decode. Hold beginners mind. We are making a quantum leap.

  • Remember who you really are. Remember that you were born and trained for these times. Remember that everything you need is inside you. Remember your heart knows the way.
