Another cycling through of powerful energies is upon us with this Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Capricorn – just one of the many astrological influences going on right now. With this Moon we are working with the energies of Capricorn and Cancer – think sensitive, open heart, and intuitive trust meets wise discernment, inner strength, and exercise of boundaries.
Emotions are raw at these Full Moons and heightened by Cancer’s energy right now. Capricorn steps in to help navigate these feelings more effectively and with a mature wisdom that helps you to harness determination and clarity to review things from a more balanced perspective. Then the intuition that is revealed doesn’t just sit idle, but now has a way of coming forth into manifestation.
This photo was taken of me on Sunday while we were on an adventurous hike. I love the merging of water, snow, and ice with mountainous terrain, rock, and greenery emerging. It speaks to me so much of this Capricorn and Cancer balancing made tangible, which was also part of the journey to get to the lakes at top – using feelings, intuition, determination, responsible action, and wise discernment to navigate the way.
I also love how my shoulders are in perfect alignment with the mountain behind me – almost creating an expansive wing-like essence, but one of solidity. My stance is grounded and anchored, and yet my energy feels open, free and flowing like the waters surrounding me.
If it’s hard to imagine what the merging of Cancer and Capricorn would feel and look like this, at least for me, helps me to envision it. And the experience helped me to embody it more.
It’s incredible how things happen like that.
Messages of this Moon speak to not relinquishing that inner heart and spirit knowing in place of what others or society are trying to impose as decisions for you.
Nurturing more courage and strength and surrounding yourself with more resonant spirits that align with you and help you to steer a more aligned course for yourself will likely be beneficial, especially if you feel challenged by doing it on your own.
It’s a time for discovering, embracing, and realizing your worth at the core of your being and that it’s not determined or defined by anything else but that.
Perhaps you might be feeling the desire to withdraw, but these are times to expand further.
The only true enemy you have is when you fight against yourself or give in to the perpetuation of collective struggles and patterns running the show.
There are some who may find moving on from experiences and people that feel oppressive will be supportive for this. And many others I’ve noticed are exiting in more extreme ways, as it feels timely for them to simply move on altogether.
It can be challenging and that’s why having some kind of support system – whether friends, family, like-minded kindred spirits, animal companions, loved ones, or a strong relationship to Nature or the nature within you can help.
Peace can be found through an understanding of non-duality – that there is a place where all things meet in the heart.
And speaking of hearts, I posted this share along with the photo above on my Instagram page and it felt aligned for these energies. I’m resharing it here, as I know many of you aren’t on Instagram.
Surrender to the courage of your wild heart – it has a power very rare.
Surrender to the guidance of your heart and take courageous steps to be more vulnerable and connect more intimately and deeply with yourself, others, and all of life around you. Your life will shift immensely in reflection to these commitments.
When the heart is continually being conditioned only by the mind, its voice and inspiration become stifled and confused, even when you actively try to engage it.
When you allow the mind’s influence to overpower the heart’s, you place limitations on the extraordinary source and well-spring of energy, vibrancy, guidance, intuition, and inspiration it can provide naturally. Not to mention, you hinder the joy and extraordinary experiences that could infuse your life if you had a clear path to your heart.
It’s not that we abandon the mind, but integrate a healthier union between it and the heart, with heart leading and being supported and channeled most effectively.
A wild heart is one that operates naturally, instinctively, and freely, providing direction from your authentic self and from the deepest passions and desires that stem from that truth. This is hidden between layers of “ideas” you have about yourself and the conditioned “desires” that you have come to learn.
Your wild heart will lead you back to your essence, and toward real liberation, satisfaction, harmony, and balance at the core of your being.
Be willing to face and lovingly let go of old mental and emotional patterns, and the conditioning that reins you in from experiencing your own wild, free heart – taking time to repattern yourself back to who you really are.
It’s not a simple journey at first, but it does become increasingly easy when consistently and actively engaged.
Afterall, it IS simply you returning to natural harmony. That may seem like a foreign experience right now, but it’s the most natural experience there is. You’ve simply forgotten this.
It’s interesting that in the last several days a few new animals have shown up for us here. Yesterday we had two long-tailed weasels visit our deck, which we’ve never seen. And on our bike ride, I saw a dead baby porcupine alongside the bike path. A few days ago I found a dead mouse on the forest trail behind our house. And swallowtail butterflies and large, chubby bumble bees (I like to call mini bear cubs with wings) galore have been visiting and dancing around me.
I didn’t get to see this one myself, but a friend had come to pick us up the other day and she said she saw a grown rabbit on our lawn. This made me happy because I’ve been wondering about Blueberry and his mom – the rabbit family from last year – and this made me feel that Blueberry was grown up and still making this his home.
These are just the more unusual of sightings to add to the array of daily regular ones, although I have a thing for finding all of the dead animals.
I also found five – my favorite number – Steller’s Jay feathers on Saturday…one after another. I actually “knew” I’d find five – even though they were all spread out over 7 miles.
The symbolism and energies of them are also telling and feel aligned with things.
Cycles continue and transformation is part of life. Best to flow with it, rather than fight it.
There are a lot of retrogrades also happening right now and these always lend to it being a beneficial time for reviewing and clarifying your life and life focuses.
What has been running the show for you?
What are your choices rooted in?
You have opportunity to change that story and live from a renewed connection to your inner heart’s guidance that now has the strong support system it has always craved, to do what it wants most.
This is manifesting from an open heart and it comes from the union of energies working together to strengthen each other.
Most people like to say they’ll believe it when they see it, which hinders their ability to experience the magick, let alone manifest it.
These are my three magick tangerines I harvested last evening from the tangerine tree in the back yard. I was taking a break in between design work and making dinner.
No surprise they mirrored something to me that I’d just finished energetically infusing into the design. 😉 At least I saw the correlation, as I see a lot of things that not everyone may take notice of.
I’ve mentioned these sweet little tangerines before in posts, sharing how they were starting to develop completely out of season – they aren’t supposed to arrive until February for harvest.
At first there was just one. That one came much earlier than these three and was already enjoyed in a smoothie like a month or more ago.
Then, I found another one.
Then a third up high.
Hidden gifts blossoming one by one.
The little tangerine tree, which has been such an amazingly abundant tree in and of itself, has yielded hundreds of tangerines at a time in its season. I’ve had tangerines coming out of my ears and loved that they arrived in February – my birthday month!
Now, this little tangerine tree is creating miracles…mirroring much of what I’m experiencing in my life currently, simply from belief, trust, and courageous creating.
Indeed, you’ll see it when you believe it.
Anything IS possible….dreams DO come true….miracles CAN happen….BELIEVE!
As I’ve mentioned, we decided to move forward into the reality we want to create even though we don’t know how the rest of the pieces will come together.
I just knew that if we did, they would. And they ARE!
It’s important to take actions in support of your intentions and not just sit back waiting. That said, it’s also important to make those moves in aligned timing with the energy presenting itself, following the rhythm of natural flow.
When you receive the signs and messages, feel the nudge or tug, or feel your intuition subtly or loudly guiding you forth, it’s time to take a step.
So when you ask for something you need to also engage it on your own end.
And when you want something you need to be aware that your mind and ego will run amuck giving you every reason why this, that, or the other thing needs to be in place before you do anything – inevitably holding you back and losing opportunities that keep presenting themselves because they aren’t appearing in the form you’ve attached to as being ideal and yet ARE in fact ideal and for the highest good, but you’re too fixated on controlling it.
Anyway, I knew the timing was now for beginning the new adventure and getting the RV. And so we got it when the alignments lit up, and immediately rented the house on a 3 year lease and moved forward.
The rest of when and how didn’t need to be known in my book. I absolutely knew that things were aligned…I have been so strongly living the new reality in embodiment in all ways. And so this was the physical step to take to get the rest in motion.
And since, things have been lining up one by one.
We also, just a week and a half ago, reserved the RV spot at the beach park here we’ll be living in until the next pieces fall into place, giving time for adjustment and integration into the new lifestyle and providing time for the animal companions to get comfortable.
And now the rest of the pieces are starting to show up.
Without going into details, as I can’t, 50% of the last part came together, unofficially at first, (in a way I knew possible, but was quite surprising for Dave and would be a “wow!” factor for many indeed) and shed very exciting light on the last 50% potentially happening very soon – sooner than maybe would have been thought and that means that the adventure of traveling the U.S., Canada, and Mexico may begin not long after moving out, as opposed to perhaps taking several months.
So when I said I wouldn’t be here that long, I meant it!
Right now move out and in to RV is October 15th. The final departure date from the area is still a specific unknown, but now is looking to be not long after that. Date to be announced. It at first was completely an unknown with total openness of perhaps even months, but now it is closing in and could be as soon as end of year or before! We will see! I just know it will be perfect, regardless.
It’s been about patience and continuing to move forward…not trying to control, sending energy for the highest good of all concerned, and believing without doubt it was happening.
When I got word yesterday that things were looking like they were happening quite quickly and magickally, I was just about to go out front and plant more Sunflower seeds all around.
And so I used that as opportunity to both literally and symbolically plant seeds of intention.
I brought my fresh seeds I’d retrieved from the two giant Sunflowers that had bloomed and passed already, along with some more of my Heirloom seeds outside, with a watering can, and my gloves and went at it.
It was so hot I could barely sit on the cement or walk on it, but I managed to hang in there to get the job done.
With each seed I planted, I actively stated my intentions in conjunction with the news I’d just heard that possibly was happening, to support them into manifestation. I then watered all of my seeds/intentions to help them grow. The Sun was in full effect, so the light of life itself was igniting the activation of these intents.
This act of connecting my intentions with an actual ritual is something I do all the time in varying ways. It makes the process more potent and integrates it deeply, plus connects me with the divine rhythm and harmony of nature.
While I was seeding, a lovely butterfly friend decided to appear right next to me on the Bougainvillea and just wanted to hang out. At first she was just sitting very present with me amidst the leaves and then at the end began pollinating the blossoms.
I did not have my cell phone/camera with me, as I was simply working in the front garden, but when I was done with seeding one side and just sat with the butterfly for a while, I got the distinct feeling she wanted to be seen in a bigger way to share her messages with others.
Butterfly medicine is quite wonderful…bringing magick, transformation, joy, and promise to the seeds I was literally and symbolically planting. Butterfly was given to me as my life path symbol when I first began my conscious spiritual journey…so this was a lovely nudge, and I’ve enjoyed that each time I go out into the garden I’m greeted by a butterfly. I have a white butterfly that has a very ethereal quality that comes to me out back, and also a giant Swallowtail that appears daily.
So I went inside to get my cell/camera and returned to find her still just hanging out, waiting for me. And mind you I didn’t go fast either.
I started snapping photos of her (she was so lovely and my artist’s eye just couldn’t get enough of the images they saw – they are laced throughout this post) and she seemed to dance into different positions in the light and shadows, amidst the blossoms and leaves, posing for me.
She didn’t mind me being an inch or two away from her with my hands. She was never worried I’d do anything and just sat very still. I had the instinct feeling she would have come on my hand, but I also didn’t feel it was necessary.
I rather just share energy and a close partnership where I respected our mutual independence and choice to be together sharing the same space very intimately.
And so she lingered quite a while..so long that in fact I ended up leaving her first, as I wanted to complete the planting of seeds on the other side. So I got up and left to do so, and I noticed when I turned to look back at her, she had disappeared.
Cool synchronicities happened after I returned inside.
I went to go back to my work and saw that I had a message on Facebook. So I went on to read it. When I did, my feed showed me a photo and quote I had posted two years ago that day.
The quote I had shared with it was:
“There are many things that seem impossible only so long as one does not attempt them.” ~André Gide
Talk about being in the zone!!
Then I went to read the message and it was from my sweet Pisces Faery Brother in Seattle who was sending me good wishes and magick, in his shared excitement about my upcoming adventure, and asking me some questions about the RV.
I then was texting with my Faery sis, Laura, sharing the news. She is also experiencing the same manifestations, openings, and pieces unfolding in her life, just in her own relative ways – we did after all do some big time activating when we visited in person back in May 😉
I discovered that my message went to her at 1:11 my time – 4:44 her time! And she chimed in noticing at 1:44 my time.
Plant the seeds and they grow!
I decided to do a Reiki Healing Attunement (again, I’ll reiterate to anyone who has learned these – if you aren’t using this tool you really are missing out on a powerful gift you have at your fingertips) for the rest of the 50% to come together officially and added a few other goodies in as well….of course adding “for the highest good of all concerned” and using my ritual mantra that opens me/everyone involved to something even better, not being attached to it happening any one certain way.
And I was so excited that I decided to treat myself to some special gifts, ordering them as celebration and to lock in the next portion energetically.
I had been lingering for several weeks on whether or not to get them for several reasons, and I realized that they represented my essence I was wanting to embody more of, in all ways. So, I took the plunge and literally felt this joyous ease and excitement right away, as well as an energetic shedding of skin take place that was going to reveal the new that much more quickly.
I’ve planted many seeds of intention over time and with every experience I continue to learn how to integrate the process more deeply and naturally…so that it is becoming a seamless dance of life with Earth and Cosmos, and literally “creating life as a work of art,” as my personal motto goes.
The more we listen and follow the flow of energy moving through, in and around us, the more easily life becomes to navigate, understand, partner in the creative manifestating of, and all done with more grace and natural harmony.
When the energy calls…I heed the call – no matter what that means in terms of the way life may need to look like. I just need to show up and realize it is always reflecting my truth and deepest heart’s joy when I get out of its way.
This is just another reason why a daily connection to nature in some way where you form an intimate relationship and understanding of her reflections and mutual giving and receiving you can share in honor of how they move you into living, is important and invaluable.
Also, creating sacred ritual around your life on a daily basis and inviting it in when you are wanting to create things in your life can be so powerful.
I see everything as a sacred process and relationship, even if that simply is with myself – the most sacred relationship there is.
Life is a walking meditation, as I always say.
If you have an intention you want to manifest, think of ways you can deeply connect that to a sacred process where you are mutually giving and receiving and connects you to the nature of life itself.
You may find that planting some seeds in your own garden of life will open you to a magickal realm of living and invites a divine partnership to blossom where limits are only possible to the extent you don’t dream, believe, and imagine.
Humanity has been awakening to a whole new experience, where rapid,
collective vibrational changes are taking place on the planet. Changes that
call for adjustments to be made on our part, where shifting to a path
of harmony involves consciously moving out of the current path of convenience.
Accelerated vibrations are rapidly increasing and needing to be embraced, but this
does not insinuate a “better than” feeling towards current vibrations. They are simply different and in need of compassionate integration, as all parts create the whole. Evolution is rapidly upon us, as we are called to remember and reactivate the beingness of the light bodies we once knew. We are phase shifting from one experience to a multi-dimensional experience, as we journey through the opening doorways we are manifesting with this
Earth is mirroring the shift movement taking place and experiencing a
birthing cycle in response. In this way, she is able to match the vibrational
changes we are moving into. In order to aid her in this transition and work in
harmony with the process, more conscious awareness and choices become
prevalent, as well as the need to always act from the knowingness of our
hearts. Challenges can be avoided, if we realize our connective thread and
choose to assist with the love of our light beingness. It is our natural
ability to adapt and to walk the Earth with harmonic presence.
We are all treasured children of Earth. She awaits our reciprocating support
and love during these vital transitions. Awareness, respect, nurturing, and love:
ingredients to cultivate the New Earth and a connective, joyful experience of
We are the guardians of our Earth and she relies on our honoring this
partnership with her. And the most powerful way we can support one another
cohesively, is to be a shining example of unconditional love. It’s simply the choice to be a
joyful being in every moment through love, honor, and conscious choices. We
have a profound affect on others in the smallest of ways. Just saying what is
in your heart reflects more power than any act of force or attached expectations. We are not here to proselytize another.
We are simply here on a joy quest to master the art of devouring the beauty of life. Allow the law of attraction to unfold, as it knows how to do the work on its own. Those attracted to you either are those that will get “it,” or they are those in search of “it.” “It” meaning, what you are emanating from the heart that others resonate with. Not much is necessary to be done or said. A simple, joy and love-filled smile from you can say it all.
Interesting piece of trivia: Did you know that if you rearrange the letters in the word “HEART” you get “EARTH” and vice versa? This is very significant symbolically in connecting the two vibrationally. When the frequency and vibration of our Hearts change,
so too does the Earth’s frequency, as a direct mirroring reflection. One is not
isolated from the other and so when we consciously expand our capacities for
compassion, non-judgment, and conscious awareness through unconditional love,
global change is inevitable and Mother Earth will flourish with the same joy.
I love the magic in seemingly arbitrary things we take for granted.
A way to this new experience of ever-loving, harmonious, magical, abundant, joyous, expansive synchronicity, is in finding it increasingly important to move towards peacefully cocreating with conscious awareness. There is power in one, but the power of many is unimaginably potent. Moving from duality to Unity Consciousness creates change towards
a balanced New Earth experience. And part of that balance involves a new
partnership between “Awakened Humanity” and the “Elemental Kingdoms of Nature” together with the other “Kingdoms of Consciousness.” New relationships between Humanity and Nature are increasingly magnified in significance now more than ever.
Living with respect, love, and with compassionate sharing helps us to no longer feel alone.
Together we have much beauty to experience and so much more we can achieve. Becoming skilled with cocreative processes aligns and activates evolutionary vibrations to bring us closer to Source/All That Is/The Universe/Our God Essence.
I believe it’s never too late. We can manifest change in the here and now, that will transform the present, create a bright new future, and reshape the past. Our power is in
the present moment. With every thought, belief, feeling, and action, it is possible
to create miracles in the now. We need to believe and nurture a bit
of that childlike hope we once had.
The animals have messages to share with us as well. We need only to listen and
resonate with their vibrations in order to receive it. With intelligence and
conscious awareness comes responsibility. The animals have been communicating the
Universe’s transitions. They’re showing us how our choices are affecting the
Earth. It is no mystery that change is needed. There is so much we can learn and share from and with them. They remind us of the beauty of our Earthly existenece and the need for integration of all of our parts. As we progress intellectually and spiritually, we mustn’t forget our emotions and our physical bodies and the beauty that manifests when we
harmonize them into intuitive, instinctual sychronicity.
May the peace of the nature of the cosmos be in each and every one of us.
