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!
Serpents are every where if you look. This is the Year of the Black Snake.
Happy Chines New Year.

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.
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.
The Sun is Conjunct the Galactic center
Here is planetary wisdom from of my teachers Stephanie@ecoastrology.com
December 12: Alignment of 12-12-12
December 13: New Moon 12:42 AM PST (22º Sagittarius); Uranus turns direct (5º Aries)
December 18: Sun conjunct Galactic Center (27º Sagittarius) and opposite Ceres (27º Gemini)
December 21: Solstice 3:12 AM PST; end of Mayan Long Count Calendar, end of 26,000 year cycle
December 11, 2012
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.
