If there ever was a time to tweak ourselves and let go of traits that don’t serve us, it is now. Mercury (which rules communication and our daily actions) has completed its recent job, over the last month, of bringing us into clearer understanding of our inner thoughts, feelings and actions, so we should now have new insight on where we want our focus to be.

 

Our Wednesday, November 28, 2012 Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Gemini is doing its job, in harmony with Mercury moving us into forward motion and outward action. Full Moons bring full light and full emotion on whatever traits belong to the zodiac sign it becomes Full in, which is Gemini. Gemini’s ruling planet is Mercury so they mean the same thing; i.e. communication and daily doings.

 

At Full Moons, because situations have reached their peak; their fullness, they begin then, to get smaller in size, just like the Moon does, as it now begins to show less light/size night after night until it’s out of sight; when we then have our New Moons which begin to grow in light/size again until it reaches Full Moon. So at Full Moons or after, it is our time to minimize, diminish and let go, with the help of the sign’s traits where it was located at Full.

 

If you want to shed weight at this Full Moon in Gemini, now is the time to focus on the beliefs you have about it or what people have said in the past that you took on and gave power to, which may have led to its gain, so now shift and release those thoughts and daily habits. It’s time to lessen the burden/weight carried.

 

If you desire to extinguish a fear or an addiction, start exposing the inner thoughts and words you use, connected with it now. You get the idea. What do you want to let go of? Because the Moon became full in Gemini and Gemini rules all communication, let’s focus on the inner mind, outer words and let those, without benefit, go.

 

Why is now such an important opportunity for big change in ourselves? Without too many words on other relevant astrological support, I will just say, This is not just a regular Full Moon for monthly releases; it is a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse. Eclipses bring new fate and destiny, by eclipsing out the old.

 

This is also a time to be gentle with how you talk to yourself. Rather than give in to the urge of berating yourself for what isn’t perfect, can we take a deep breath while thinking about how we are learning and growing from this situation, thereby realizing it has been a gift?

 

Certainly being demeaned doesn’t empower us to change, but can make us cower, feeling less than. Remember, we shall strive to treat others respectfully, in the same way that we desire to be treated. Always honor yourself, no matter what, and treat yourself with the same love you bestow on others.

 

In these holy times, remember compassion, forgiveness and understanding is enlightened communication; a great habit and The best Gift.

First, many thanks to each of you, worldwide, for reading my columns. And thanks to you, Sedona’s Red Rock News, for publishing them for us. We’ve surpassed our one year anniversary and it’s thanks to all of you.

 

Thanksgiving week has arrived, and that deserves my honoring its unique time with my ramblings on the subject in the written word. I think back to a column I wrote in South Florida perhaps 15 years ago, that thankfulness is a full time job. In fact, it’s not a job but a privilege.

 

People want to know how to feel joy. One of the best ways, is to notice how much we have. “Let me count the ways.” A sense of entitlement and taking things for granted can keep joy from being felt, by the omission of cherishing every morsel about life. What isn’t recognized can’t bring you the joy that’s innate in the thing.

 

In essence, it’s giving thanks for every gift; not only what you might judge as a big gift, believing that those are the only ones worthy of gratefulness. A great way to start the day, even before getting out of bed, could be thinking about how grateful you are for the bed! For the comb and brush, the cleansing gel and towel, the slippers, the toothbrush.

 

Have we forgotten how glad we are to have even little things that make such a big difference? Let’s consider them gifts. I know you’ll be able to uncover the other gifts you’re actually thankful for, from the food…that you like… being kept fresh for you, to the delay in traffic allowing you to be able to more fully enjoy the view.

 

Then, on the other hand, the thanks can be gained from the giving. Thank yourself, because it feels so wonderful to give, that it becomes your own gift to yourself. Yep, even more than hearing thanks from the person receiving the gift. Remember you didn’t give to receive, or that isn’t pure giving. The gift is the joy of giving.

 

You more likely gave to realize the joy in the other receiving, or that you wanted to help them have a better life experience. Have you noticed the joy in giving? Sometimes their expression upon seeing your gift is so fulfilling, sometimes their crying in thanks makes you cry in joy. Sometimes thanks may come a lot later, and may mean even more then.

 

One more thing: If you can tune in to a different frequency and listen to the inner voice say what’s good about something or someone, love unconditionally and have faith that things happen for a higher purpose, and work out as they 'should;' as opposed to listening to the same old negative frequency that loves to tell us what is not good about a person, place or thing (often our inner fears, habits or what someone else said) you will receive the gift that was always there at a higher frequency. Calm.

 

PS, You are a gift, and don’t need to qualify, or be perfect. Our gift is being able to continue to better ourselves, but You,… however You are wrapped right now, are already a Gift to the world.

 

Happy Thanks Giving!

We hear from everywhere, these days, to be positive and expect the best outcome. Of course, you know I agree. Yet if someone were going on a job interview with only blind faith and a sense of entitlement, there could be a few stumbling blocks in the way; for instance if they were not qualified for the job, wearing dirty wrinkled clothing mixing unpleasant odor with heavy cologne, or texting during the interview… You get the idea.

 

Expecting the best also carries with it the responsibility for us to do whatever we can to help ensure a favorable outcome.

Life, itself, is a gift we can all be thankful for, and one to be prepared for, every day. We buy groceries and clothing for all occasions, groom and shower regularly. We go to school to understand society, its history and systems, plus create an income to keep life alive. Providing fun and love is our responsibility too.

 

It certainly helps to know the subject matter that is coming up in your life, and prepare. Like studying for a test, or planning a wedding. When we get warnings that unfavorable situations are on their way, certainly we take precautions, such as going to plan B; moving the wedding indoors to avoid rain, or for those in Hawaii, recently, heading for higher ground with survival items, heeding alerts a tsunami was expected.

 

In less life-threatening situations, such as someone demeaning or insulting you, perhaps threatening to ruin your reputation or dignity, or you discovering your significant other has been making love with someone else, is your soul prepared emotionally, spiritually? We can expect the best from ourselves, and expect the best from life’s days and fellow inhabitants, and even expect the best from potential outcomes, by also being prepared.

 

Did you receive wisdom and self-esteem from parents and others? Do you know that your worth and joy are not dependant on someone else?  Were you guided to be honest and act with integrity? That can be likened to creating a magnet in your soul which attracts and rewards you with inner peace and best possible resultant experiences. Was there spiritual sustenance provided in some consistent way? You can truly have a real communication connection with God who guides and loves you continually and unconditionally, as you evolve in your spirit.

 

Let’s stay positive and expect the best possible, always. There is true spiritual magic that manifests from that positive faith and living in the light. There are two sides to every thing, and it’s joyfully fulfilling to place your sure bet on the bright light side. Remember not to shirk your personal responsibility to yourself, of being prepared for unexpected situations, on the other side of the coin, which may flip over. That side also has gifts, lessons for our growth, and ultimate positive outcomes of their own.

 

What might this mean for you, in particular? For one person it may mean building their self-esteem or committing to integrity. For another it may mean having a sewing kit in their purse. For another, they may purchase insurance of some sort, or for the next person it may mean keeping a blanket, sustenance, tools and gasoline in their vehicle. For yet another, they may set about practicing positive thinking and faith.

 

Being prepared doesn’t mean you are drawing challenging experiences, just by energizing an action in the direction of ‘what if.’ In fact, the boy scout motto is ‘Be Prepared.‘ We’re talking about looking at both sides of the coin, instead of pretending a flip side doesn’t exist.

 

There is faith and there is also practicality. You may have heard the story about a person who resisted help which came in various forms, always saying, ‘no thank you, God will provide,’ then having resisted all help, found himself in front of God complaining that God hadn’t saved him, to which God replied, I sent you many forms of help.

 

Stay happy, stay laughing, stay honest, stay loving, stay positive, stay joyful, stay playing, stay singing, stay faithful to be strong spiritually; and stay practical. For instance keep the body strong enough to enjoy life, and keep your house clean and stocked with treats and sheets, in case guests come unexpectedly. Expect a wonderful visit.

Three times each year, for about a month in length each time, there is a phenomenon we call mercury retrograde, when our communications and commerce systems get slowed down, delayed, and altogether misaligned in various ways.  Not only are our machines not working smoothly, we’re not thinking as sharply as usual either, without mercury’s assistance. For about 3 weeks before mercury retrogrades, we are in what we call the shadow of the retrograde, and the energies are similar. I give you dates below, to be aware of.

 

On the other hand, of mercury retro, it’s also the time to edit, and rethink things, redo things that have already happened, as if God gives us breaks to revisit situations for taking a look back, going within, and tweaking. We discover things, realize things, have aha’s. Most importantly, there will be brand new insight and information (that wasn’t available before, or during, the retrograde), when mercury moves forward again.

 

While in its backward motion, things don’t move forward as much as they are going retro/over the past times, and taking us inward. So we’ll be thinking of people from the past, perhaps hearing from them or running into them. It’s a good time to fix things that didn’t work before, however also keep in mind if you’re having something important worked on, there could be an incompleteness, requiring more work.

 

Especially be aware that the two days before and two days after the day it stops/stations to retrograde, energies are intense. Our most current retrograde began yesterday, election day, November 5th, when Mercury seemingly stopped/stationed in the sky to begin the backstroke.

 

Yesterday, Tuesday, we voted for President of the United States. Yeppers, was that affected?  News of provisional ballots caused  chaos and confusion, and there were complaints of long lines, which the President spoke to. There was a long holdout/stand still after CNN projected President Obama, and the Romney campaign waited for more votes to be counted.

 

The last time we had an election on the day that mercury was stationing retrograde, we heard about the chaos of hanging chads echoing through the nation. Are we back, to the future? Certainly a different future, and we went back with our previous President to take us into the future.

 

Mercury will station/stop to go forward again, on November 26, so expect intense energies two days before, and two days after that date as well. In fact, two days after, in the early morning of November 28, we also have the intensity of a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Gemini. Lunar Eclipses put full emotion and spotlight on changes that will be shaped over 6 months, and Gemini traits rule the nervous system, and everything having to do with communication, our relatives, and local neighborhoods. What brand new information will have shown up at this time?

 

One week from now, and before the Lunar Eclipse, we’ll have a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio, on November 13. Solar eclipses bring fate and destiny change that will build over 3 years. Scorpio is a very intense, powerful energy about endings making way for new beginnings and transformation. It is about big money, and powerful people, revelations about mysteries and secrets and seeing behind the veil of what we called reality, into deeper knowledge. Psychic.

 

Often things are repeated during a merc retro period, which we’re in now. Funny, yesterday, two different people at different locations thought they had seen me earlier in the day, which wasn’t so, as I hadn’t left my home before then.

 

Want more examples? About a week ago my computer began acting up, in that it wouldn’t allow me to use any icons on the screen. Everything was well plugged in, but no fear;  I had recently made an appointment for my computer guy to come out and do the quarterly tune-up on my computers Monday, yet, even so, some things went haywire the next day after the tune-up, yesterday, Tuesday , so he came back. That is so retrograde.

 

Of mail and faxes I’d sent over the last weeks to a particular company, through yesterday, none had been receive. Just got word, today, they are received. Also, my email was hacked recently; my computer guy suggested I call my provider, and I learned they changed my passwords because they had discovered it, so I had to redo them all, including on my I-phone. For that reason, updating the daily astrology for November, on my website, was delayed (because the site is through my provider, and password protected) plus the website, itself, has been moving very slowly when I edit, so it likely won’t be complete until later today!

 

It’s likely in your best interests to wait, regarding buying any items that have moving parts, from cars to computers and phones, etc., and wait to sign contracts and make major decisions. Remember there will be new information revealed during these times, that we will need, including after mercury retrograde turns direct again.

 

These are God-made times to chill out, relax when appointments are delayed or missed, wrong numbers dialed, learning to let things roll off your back and realize patience is a virtue. Take vacation (be sure to tag your luggage), and refine things in your life that you can, taking time to look more deeply. Get into your music, research spiritual and other things.

 

Write us your mercury retrograde experiences in the comments section below, and feel free to ask me questions there too.

Tonight is Halloween when we get in costume to have fun. I was at a party Saturday evening and really enjoyed the costumes. A TV script writer had pages of script attached to her clothes. A former Victoria Secret model came in beautiful lingerie sleepwear with gorgeous wings. I wore a long Victorian white lace dress with a fashionable hat of the times.

It was requested that no one wear masks, so we had to own our costume, instead of hiding our identity behind the masks. That was interesting because we were talking to each other as if we were another version of ourselves. No face masks.

Then I saw "Cloud Atlas" last night. Talk about other versions of ourselves. Each actor donned about five costumes, playing one soul as different personas. I haven’t given the movie away, but it was quite interesting.

Do we sometimes get fixed on who we think we are? Are you the accountant, or the salesperson? The star or the extra? Do you run an organization or are you looking for new work? Sometimes changing positions casts us in a new part and we morph into that persona. Remember to take off your mask and breathe free. You don’t have to act like a diva or shout orders to play your part. You are the writer, producer and director so create a divine character personality to act. Being CEO doesn’t mean you have to play rough and tough. Being an employee doesn’t mean you have to kiss you-know-what or feel less than.

When in Rome do as the Romans do. I was brought up attending live NYC TV and Broadway shows, attained a recording contract then sang on stage. I loved fashion, makeup and entertainment. When I moved to Colorado and married my former husband, to fit in I stopped wearing makeup, and donned my mountain boots. I liked it. We are not just one way. I like being in the spotlight but I am also very shy, humble and like to empower others.

Sometimes our masks are pretense itself, like keeping up with the “Joneses” or in this day and age, the Kardashians, by purchasing things to fit in with the crowd. A little bit can be harmless, but we’ve all noticed people that might lose their identity without their toys and masks. That can put someone in unnecessary debt, or could have otherwise fed some hungry people.

Telling fibs and lies or doing things outside of integrity to fit in, is a mask. Drinking or drugging is a mask to keep from being yourself. Needing to be accepted is a drug. A friend recently gave my friends and I a quick performance example by shaking a friend’s hand, saying, “How am I,” (instead of “How are you?”).

Love of self and others brings joy. Feeling understood. Living honestly and with integrity brings joy. Living within means, debt-free with back-up savings and insurance can bring peace of mind in the soul. Valuing what we have; living and giving in gratitude brings joy. A Zen question asks, if every thing were taken away from you, what would you have left? Some people believe having your joyful spirit and having love (not buying it) is more valuable than any ‘thing’ or possession. We were brought here by God naked and will always be worthy, even stripped bare.

Full moons bring ocean tides to their highest, and put full light and full emotion on the characteristics of the sign it is in. Monday was our once-a-year Taurus Full Moon. Taurus traits highlight our self worth and basic spiritual values, and points out where we can tend to be materialistic, valuing money and the ownership of possessions more than the things that have more meaning and value in the long run. Taurus spotlights the basics needed to survive. Taurus is all about survival, and is strong, representing patient determination to grow something. Taurus builds…with the finest craftsmanship, creating strong quality. Taurus knows how to make use out of any thing and thereby can value every little thing that we DO have. It is unshaken in the face of difficulty.

It’s easy for all of us to take things for granted, even feeling entitled, falling into a lull of believing things don’t change. Many who relocate to Sedona come with very little. I was one of those, years ago. My belongings don’t define me and I would find new treasures here. I gave away a lot, to family and friends, and have done that any time I have ever relocated, keeping only what has real value and the basics necessary to begin again. Sometimes it’s refreshing to start over, redefining who we are, and what’s really valuable.

With all that has gone on in our lifetime globally, with man-made and mother nature-made challenges, the heart does go on, and brings us closer together, realizing we are all in this together. The masks are off and we realize we need each other. Some of us learn to help and some of us learn to accept help.

Many of the most high that are worshipped walked the earth with nothing, or chose to have no belongings. Our hearts go out to those who have been in the wake of the sandy windy watery super sized energy of mother nature as this Moon became Full. Our Father, who art in Heaven, HALLOWED be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our sins/debts as we have forgiven our debtors/sinners. And deliver us not into temptation…

Thine is the kingdom and the glory, forever. Let’s make every day and evening a Hallowed evening or day. Happy Hallow’een . Enjoy playing a new role, being a new you, fresh and alive, starting over, grateful for daily bread.

The Maya Calendar long count has been said to reach its completion on December 21, 2012. From today, Wednesday, October 24, 2012, that is 58 days. But who’s counting? I’ve also heard it said from an historian researcher on the Mayan culture, that the date we’ve heard about is wrong and off by a very very long time.

 

If I go by watching the TV documentaries that have appeared over the last years, apparently Nostradamus brings us to this time, pointing a finger toward us, and a question mark, as if to indicate we count in fashioning what occurs next. The I Ching (coincidentally?) ends on that date as well. Another depiction shows it is important if we will get the ball through the small rung; in other words make the shot in one try as the timer is counting down the final second of the game. I’ve learned that this date marks the balance of the masculine and feminine on earth.

 

My feeling is, if the finger is pointed at me, and pointed at you, why not play on the safe side and take responsibility for what our consciousness can create. What better time to love unconditionally, be kind, say ‘I love you,’ give hugs, forgive. Expect only good. Count your blessings. Desire prosperity and abundant vitality for everyone, not just yourself. What we mindfully wish for others is only a carbon copy; the original stays with us in effect, so be careful what you wish on others. That includes everyone. The spiritual statement, ‘With God ALL things are possible,’ means there are no exceptions. We CAN do it.

 

Expect our days and nights to be gentle, comfortable, safe and surrounded with love. Expect mother earth to shift from our past treatment with small stretches and shrugs instead of big ones. Treat her well. Fear is the opposite of love, so steer your thoughts to good perceptions. Even the Bible says, ‘it is done unto you as you believe.’ Your thoughts count. We are all broadcast stations receiving, and sending to the collective. What is your contribution; your frequency? Have you seen the film, "The Divine Matrix," yet? I believe you can watch online.

 

Let the feminine receptive, intuitive, compassionate side of you awaken. Revere it, and imagine all beings of feminine energy on earth treated with equality. Hear their wisdom. The book, "The DaVinci Code," gave us a clue about the Holy Grail being a receptive cup, the shape of a V, receiving divine guidance, the feminine. DaVinci’s painting depicts the last supper, showing a V between Jesus and what we are now told is Mary Magdalene sitting next to him. You can also see a pole going centered into the V.

 

The Tarot Card, The Chariot, is a major message and on it we see wings; the icon for spirit, above a receptacle with a pole going into it, depicting the physical plane (friction). The Chariot is coming out of a warlike time, moving forward, and you have the reins to drive the animals; one light and one dark (animal nature) into the dark or the light. The person on the chariot has learned a lot from what they witnessed and felt, and now chooses either wisdom and light, or rage, fear and more competitiveness, the need to balance our physical life with the higher road/spiritual way.

 

The Tarot’s major message card, The Lovers, depicts an angel equally hovering over two figures; one that is the feminine nature and one that is a masculine nature. The feminine depiction is looking up to the angel, receptive to its guidance, and the depiction of the masculine side of our nature is looking to the feminine type of character, as if to imply that the feminine side of ourselves is receptive and we can follow its guidance because it is from a higher place. That is where love is.

 

What better time in your life than now, to seek spiritual wisdom, and spread it like a tree grows branches; like a stone of goodness thrown in the pond creates a ripple effect. I had a dream the other night that there was a broadcast tower placed in my backyard, directly in line with where I write my articles, and this is what came to me to broadcast; what I am receiving, as the words come to me to write.

 

YOU count in the countdown of the long count. No longer is it acceptable to sit back and wait for your neighbor to be what you want the world to look like, while you continue with trivial angers, jealousies, competitiveness or lies. In fact, if your neighbor is emanating the light, he or she may reap rewards, while you sit in skepticism with, I’ll wait and see what happens, and may be creating, well, who knows.

 

We are all in this together. Our new millennium is only 12 years new. It is MM (Mary Magdalene), 2000. Two is feminine and now gives us the indication that it is no longer about 1 (one) me, myself and I competing with you, it is about 2 (two); brotherhood/sisterhood and love. We are in this together.

 

If I also interpret the planets’ energies in the light of the long count, believed by many to be 58 days from now, for the first time in 248 years Pluto, the planet of breakdown for the sake of rebuilding state of the art, is in Capricorn, which can represent tradition, the old system, the way things have always been; hard experiences and lessons, being frugal and perhaps depressed. Pluto shows where the dark has concealed the light, what’s outdated, exposing what needs updating. Certainly our collective hearts need to think prosperously, generously, optimistically, with only love, and that means without prejudice.

 

If choosing toward negativity within one’s instinctive reactions, one could fight to the bone with negative power to keep old outdated traditions in tact, frightened to move forward and evolve into joy.

 

For the first time in 29 years, Saturn, the planet that says grow up, do the work, be mature and wise, is in Scorpio, which is about bringing up and purging our deep emotional blockages, transformational healing and being reborn. It is about merging deeply with others. If used in detriment, one could feel restricted and be headed for hard lessons about their inner hurts, resisting healing, and stinging others.

 

For the first time in 84 years, Uranus, the planet that brings enlightenment, brotherhood and swift changes for the evolution of freedom and truth, went into Aries, the sign about beginning anew, being fresh like a baby, being free and leading others, through inspiration, feeling like we can accomplish anything. If not used well it can make one act out erratically in competition, being warlike with others, and quick to anger.

 

For the first time in 164 years the planet Neptune went into the sign it rules, Pisces, which is the sign of compassion for others, living our highest aspirations and connecting with spirit, knowing faith works, and being intuitively guided to have bliss. On the other hand, if not used in its positive manner, it can be confused, overwhelmed, deceived or addicted.

 

These planets only change signs/traits, about once every 16 years for Pluto, which went into Capricorn four years ago. Saturn changes signs about once every 3 years and just went into Scorpio this month. Uranus  changes approx. every 7 years and went into Aries a year and a half ago, and Neptune changes signs/traits about every 14 years and went into Pisces only 8 months ago. Is it coincidence that these planets all changed signs for these times? The finger points at me and it points at you. It is Your choice,;your free will, how you use these energies.

 

For 58 days can you practice kindness, brotherhood; let the love of God shine through your words and actions? Will you allow yourself to transform and heal? Resist addictions that count the real you out.

 

This is a shift in consciousness, and those that have eyes to see experiences in the light of only goodness, and ears to hear with only love, may find themselves on a high road. I have seen a rock carving by the peaceful Hopi that these times divide a path between going along smoothly, or dipping downward. It is personal choice and result. Those who believe they have too much invested in fear and hate, and love it for the power anger and competitiveness fuels them with, or won’t get up out of the murky sadness they have become used to and satisfied with, might find that their challenges become more than before, angling downward, by their own consciousness. Lend a hand or grab the rope and lift yourself up seeking (ye shall find).

 

This long count that ends with the finger now pointing at each individual, may be that we are meant to recognize the divine God energy within us and be the creators of what we wish the world to be. You are the savior. Collectively those that live in light and love will be creating heaven on earth. Do you want to be joyful yet? The difference between happiness and joy could just be how you feel when you get that new car. Happy. But are you joyful in that beautiful car? Does your soul flow through your days with inner joy that you wouldn’t trade for the world? Or are you trading the world for superficial happiness?

 

Take a ride on the risk that the worst that could happen by expecting good and love for everyone; wishing all joy, is that it feels a little different than your usual thoughts, but right away, I believe you will begin to feel real joy, not the fleeting happiness that superficial things bring.

 

Is there a tipping point coming that counts how many collectively are required, to bring us to an evolved blissful existence for our future? Will we get the ball into the basket in divine timing? Will you be counted in, or be an absentee ballot, not caring to weigh in for the good of all? It is time to vote; for a higher purpose than even President of the United States. I vote victory. Happy 58 days and … joy to the world.
