Full Moon Update 7-23-21

Dear friends,

Full Moon in Aquarius is Friday, July 23 at 8:36PM Mountain Daylight Time. (MDT). Also known as the “Buck Moon”, this full moon opens opportunities to challenge beliefs, habits, how we view ourselves, how we see others, what we are putting up with, our thoughts, emotions and actions. Don’t be surprised if you are somewhat triggered during this time and needing to deal with something distasteful that comes to the surface. On the other hand, you could be hugely inspired by some inner momentum to do things differently and make exciting changes in your life. Embrace eccentricity and unique individuality in yourself and others and, whatever else happens, stay out of martyrdom, blame and judgment.

False Gods

When I was a child I remember being alternately impressed and terrified by the biblical command, “I am the Lord thy God, thou shalt not have false gods before me.” This was the command of a dominant God issuing a directive with implications of dire punishment if disobeyed. It conjured up images of frenzied hordes dancing around and bowing down to golden calves and huge statues of demonic images. I recalled the names Baal and X and the whole thing gave me the creeps.

July 2021 Monthly Forecast

The main theme for July is “Two Steps Forward, One Step Back”.

You may have a negative reaction to this theme, but actually two steps forward and one step back is exactly where we need to be right now. With new energy, enthusiasm and inspiration coming in, we are all champing at the bit to get going, get moving, and get productive. However, with every push forward, there is a need to look back at what needs to happen first. Whether it is a final forgiveness, a necessary emotional clearing, a completion of a karma, some physical detox, the release of relationship or other attachment, or simply just a need to take a second look at some plan before leaping into it, the step back is a necessary reflection to insure the movement forward is truly aligned, balanced and something we want.

Full Moon Update 6-24-21

Dear Friends,

On the heels of a powerful solstice that begins a new cycle comes a full moon. This moon is in Capricorn on Thursday, June 24 at 12:39 PM Mountain Daylight Time (MDT).

This is an optimistic time, and could be very prosperous if you can move through the challenges of the distractions of drama and ego-driven negative behaviors in yourself and in others that may crop up. Honesty, emotional vulnerability, humility and a good spiritual base are important foundational aspects for success during this time. It can be a very expansive time especially if you can harness the positivity and optimism. It is a good time to reflect on the containers of your life. What is too small, too big, completed etc. We have some good momentum to initiate the creation of some new containers for ourselves for this cycle.

This is quite an interesting topic so here I am going to address the ins and outs of how to do it, when its appropriate, what’s possible and what is not.

Alchemically Transforming Reality

I would like to respond to the many of you who raise the subject of the desecration of the earth, how depressing it is to see what humans have done to the earth, and what can be done if anything to help restore it. What accompanies this concern is often great anger at what has happened, a tendency to blame others for the destruction, deep resentment, and other horrible feelings of despair. While this is all very understandable it is exactly the opposite of what can be done to restore the earth. What I am going to talk about here may seem like the ravings of a lunatic, or some pie in the sky idealistic solution that is delusional.

Healing Cruelty With Kindness

When I was a school-age child I always puzzled over how and why people could be so mean. There were gang members that threatened me on the way to and from school. On a couple of occasions, they assaulted my friends and I. I got a new bike for Christmas…
