Full blood moon in Aries total lunar eclipse Sept 27, 2015

astrological weatherAloha,

check out this great info on the total lunar eclipse.


“This month’s Aries Full Moon is very powerful, so don’t be surprised by the surprises that come your way.
“It’s the Harvest Moon, the Full Moon closest to the Autumn Equinox. It is the 4th consecutive Blood Moon Total Lunar Eclipse in the last two years, a rare occurrence called a tetrad.

“It is also the second and most powerful Super Moon this year, when the Moon comes the closest to Earth in its elliptical orbit—as well as closely aligning with the Lunar Nodes. This means the Moon will look BIG!
“So this lunar eclipse will create extra strong tides and energy flows, disrupting sleep and energy levels.

“Added to this, when eclipses occur near the equinoxes, a time when the Earth’s magnetic field decreases, they aid us in making rapid changes, releasing old energy patterns so there’s energy available to create new forms.
“Needless to say, the energies will be intense. Give these energies a week or so to calm down before you try to integrate what you’ve learned…”

“All four Eclipses occurred in the signs of Aries and Libra because the Lunar Nodes have been moving through these signs for the past year and half. The Lunar Nodes point to a collective lesson we all have to work through, old patterns to be dropped and new lessons to be learned.

“With the South Node in Aries, we’ve been called on to let go of our old behavior patterns of reacting to situations with anger, domination and aggression, as well as our need to ‘go it alone’.
“The Libra North Node calls us to learn cooperation, diplomacy and partnership equality…”

“With this last Aries Blood Moon Total Lunar Eclipse, it’s time tointegrate the endings, awakenings, transformations and death and rebirth experiences related to the balance of Self and Other, completing our initiation into a more balanced exchange between the masculine and feminine energies of life as well as between women and men.”


Pluto square Uranus March 16 2015; Spring Is Coming…

weatherJust a reminder, in case you forgot why things are so very intense again.

March 16, 2015 – Uranus 15 Aries 18, square Pluto 15 Capricorn 18


“lord of the underworld/soul level change” in the sign of Capricorn “status quo/discipline/rules time & space and structure” is squaring Uranus “the awakener/revolution, eccentric electric lightening strike changes” in the sign of Aries “the Ram, charging forward, the warrior, impulsive, leap then look, initiator”.

Astrological weather…

7 direct squares over three years.

We are coming up on the 7th of the squares.
Mars, planet of initiation and war will also be in the mix; plus an eclipse at the karmic 29th degree of Pisces four days later on the 20th right in time for Spring Equinox.

The karmic (or The Anaretic Degree) is the last degree of a sign (each sign or house goes from 0-29 degrees) and signifies a lesson that one is very close to mastering.

This is the most strong-willed, positive, dedicated, humanitarian degree for Pisces.

In addition in this case 29 degrees Pisces is also the moment right before Spring.

So the evolutionary/revolutionary energy of the square, the forward motion of Mars in Aries, and the eclipse can be seen to be colored by the spiritually positioned Piscean energy in that eclipse, that breath before the new, into the seeding of Spring.

Power and control, soul evolution, status quo vs sudden changes, call to revolution and upheaval, conflict, resolution, need for new perspectives…and the connection to a higher octave of all of it.

Alrighty then…nothing to see here move along. 🙂

How have you been feeling? Any changes in your life? Where are things for you now since 2012, with 6 of the 7 completed?

The landscape of my life has certainly changed. Some major players have left the stage, some new characters and entirely new chapters have been added. Theme and variation. I am curious how the rest of 2015 will play out. I keep thinking of moving to a different country, seriously…not out of wanting to leave here (why leave Hawaii??) but because I keep hearing a call.

I’m a little crispy around the edges but even so I don’t think I’m done cooking yet. Maybe it’s time to turn the heat down some, let me simmer in luxurious sweet juices.


As always Remember to breathe.

Aloha and Blessings,


Between one breath and the next.











Just for a moment
Your heart brings tears to your eyes

Just for a moment
Everything comes together to a point.

As realities converge
You see them
Like pointed pieces of a puzzle,
Transparent arrowheads
Tips all touching, the trailing edges branching out infinitely

And you remember the illusion
Just for a moment you remember.
You can see past it,
behind it,
through it

And you remember
That time and space are not constants
Nothing is static
And everything is possible.

Affirmative prayer for prosperity for you to use and enjoy.

As I breathe, I bring my attention to the One. The One Love, the One Mind, the One Presence; the overarching Goodness in which everything rests and from which everything springs. This One is ever Creative, ever Loving, ever moving joyously into abundant new forms. It is made manifest as all the planets and the galaxies; as the space between stars; the supernovas and the black holes; all the hidden worlds within our very cells.

This Divine Presence, is the ever expanding Universe, and more. It Is every supply and demand, It encompasses all dichotomies, It Is the answer to all seeking and to every request. It Is bigger and vaster than I can fully comprehend, and yet It Is also as sweet and familiar and close as my most treasured friend or my very breath.

Knowing this Truth, I can relax into the certainty that this same energy and power that moves the planets in their orbits, is everywhere present and therefore active in Its expression of Goodness and Abundance; as my work, and my life, and my health, and my home, and my finances, and my community. It knows and loves me constantly and continually; and I know right here and right now that this Love expresses as the highest octave of all I desire. I am this Love, I am this expression and so as I speak my word of power it ripples across the fabric of being and demonstrates instantly as my consciousness and in perfect timing in the body of my affairs.

I enjoy wonderful relationships and fabulous projects, I revel in the abundance and ease in my finances and in my world. Dollars flow to me and my community, opportunities abound, joy happens, love and life sparkle with renewed splendor. I truly know Life is Good. I am Good. All is well.

I find myself saying thank you, thank you, thank you, as a silent prayer throughout my day. I am so grateful for all this richness and beauty, for the deep knowing of the Truth of my Worth. I am so thankful for all the good I witness around me. For all my blessings. Thank you God! Thank you Universe!

I release all of these words and emotions and images into the law which only ever says yes, and therefore I rest in calm certainty that this returns to me clothed in manifestation as I know it is already done. And So It Is!

Spring astrological weather…Mars, Sun, Uranus and Venus in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn March 2013

astrological weather

The time leading up to spring has been an interesting one astrologically. There were times over the last month there it seemed like the whole sky was in Pisces!

Well OK not the whole sky, but on that new moon (on Monday the 11th) the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Neptune, and Chiron were ALL in Pisces! Which kinda felt like the whole sky to me :).


If you felt spacey and less in touch with “reality” than you were used to, that could have been why. For me (Pisces that I am with Mercury in Pisces) it was kinda nice to have the world share some of my odd perspective hahahaha.

Since that new moon things have shifted a lot. Mars moved from Pisces (where it’s not its happiest) into its home sign of Aries (where it is very happy) it hasn’t been in Aries in two years so that is a big shift in energy.

Then Mercury stopped its retrograde motion on St. Patrick’s Day, and started going direct (yay) (it will still be in amorphous Pisces for a little while yet since being in retrograde moved it to the early degrees of Pisces.)

Spring Equinox

Now (as I am writing this) the sun moves into Aries on March 20th and starts the astrological year anew at the vernal equinox. So we add that player to the party; the next day March 21st, Venus gets all fiery as she also moves into Aries (think Aphrodite as Xena).

The energy of Venus in Aries.












Plus Uranus (remember good old Uranus planet of sudden abrupt changes and revolution) is already in Aries and will be for quite a while; and on the 21st Mars (planet of energy and war/warriors) and Uranus (sudden electric insight and revolution) are meeting up in that conjunction kind of dance. Alrighty then.

This means the Sun, Venus, Mars (and eventually Mercury but not for a while yet) are all in Aries and one by one they will conjunct the revolutionary and eccentric Uranus.

Mars Square Pluto

Next week on the 26th Mars squares Pluto (you haven’t forgotten about Pluto right?? No not the dog!! Pluto Lord of the underworld poster child for intensity, who evokes deep cellular and soul level changes and is representative of metamorphosis and our souls’ evolution. Right I didn’t think you’d forgotten Pluto.

This is all activating that Pluto/Uranus square that is going in and out of focus and is the background for social change that’s going on until 2015 (for a reminder and more backstory on the Pluto/Uranus transit you can read my blog post from September).

Pluto is in stern, structured and rule loving Capricorn. So that creates tension for leap before you look, “let’s get goooooooing” Mars in Aries.

But wait there’s more 😉

Order now and we’ll throw in a super special two for one Sun and Venus join that already happening square on March 31st.

Easter Sunday oh my…

Yes you heard right boys and girls…On March 31st (Easter for some) The Sun (our identity, our own personal self), Venus (what we love, find beautiful and compelling), and Uranus (lightning bolt out of left field to over throw the status quo and start the revolution) are square (ie angle of interest, maximum tension, contrast) Pluto in Capricorn.

Do what you can to breath through all this; remember you don’t need to change every single thing in your world before breakfast, and if something looks really good, take another breath and then move toward it. No need to chase something down blindly, let yourself be mindful even with all this Aries go go go energy and even though Uranus is saying “Rules?? who needs these stinking rules?” Pluto in Capricorn is holding the truth and consequences card (“instant Karma’s gonna get you”). Use the energy wisely, there is a lot here.

So this is a big big spring, lots starting lots being challenged lots changing. Both personally and globally.

When we now look back on the 60’s we can see the social changes in retrospect. 10-20 years from now this time we are living in will be most likely be seen in a similar fashion. Harder to see when you’re living right in it.

And I haven’t even begun to talk about Chiron in Pisces. That’s for another time.

blessings and aloha
