May 2020 Update

Greetings!
Life is moving fast. The past three weeks had so many things coming in, leaving as quickly, changes in schedule, and then re-arrangement of schedule. As it stands now, I will be in northern Virginia until the end of the month.

The work with the Q’anil Sisterhood, as I’ve begun to think of us, that is Eileen, Jeanne, Janine and myself, is exponentially expanding and producing so much awareness and big ‘ah-ha’s’, it never ceases to amaze me.

I’ve started a video journal that may be used in future productions published on Youtube. We’re each involved in doing so, and the content is more about personal process and the tools we use, rather than information exploration. This personal process will no doubt involve a degree of future-feeling, too. Every two weeks we have an open group meeting through the Soul Continue reading

The Age of Scorpio (20,000 – 17,500 BCE) finds our consciousness reaching ever upward, longing for the Divine, as the claws of the constellation of Scorpio reach up toward Libra, anticipating a long awaited Golden Age of unprecedented ease, peace and harmony. It is a time of sweetness when life is not quite perfect, but optimism is so high, joy and love so fierce that most always the correct path is inevitably known and taken. Continue reading

Musings on the Dark Goddess

Two Goddesses have recently asserted themselves into my life. I think they are important for us all.

Lilith was originally a Sumerian Goddess. In the Judaic/Christian myths, she was the first wife of Adam and made from similar substance: Earth. Adam was constructed of dust and Lilith from minerals. She refused to be subservient and when that was expected of her, she left. The patriarchs then painted a hideous picture of her as having copulated in the wilderness with the Devil and spawning demon children, bringing Evil into the world. She was even said to be the slayer of children. I reject these patriarchal embellishments since I have been shown a different story that seems closer to Truth. Continue reading

The Age of Virgo (approximately 15,000 – 12,500 BCE) is an extremely fascinating time. It is the age just coming out of The Garden, and moving headlong toward the vast changes that will be brought in by the Ages of Leo and Cancer. Continue reading

Musings on Astrology, Change and ‘Coming Out’

I have been studying astrology for many, many years. Since I was a teen in the early 70s, really. I have studied the stars for far longer. I remember, as a very small person, my dad pointing out the Big Dipper to me in a diamond-studded dark-night sky of the late 1950s. I was immediately hooked. My brother and I would often lie outside identifying the constellations whenever we could.

As an older person I learned that long ago astronomy and astrology had been combined sciences, and I longed for the rift between right-brain and left-brain to be healed once again. When I lived in the English countryside I got back to the night sky in my thirties and studied astrology formally with The White Eagle Lodge. I learned how to draw up astrology charts by hand mathematically. Slow and laborious doesn’t even come close.

The Age of Cancer (approximately 9500 – 7400 BCE) saw the upheavals of the last major global flooding. The matri-clan system was at its height as women engineered further survival tactics and skills for their people. Men lived on the periphery of the clan receiving the male children to raise anywhere from 6 – 12 years of age. There is anthropological evidence that men hunted, women gathered/gardened, and they ate separately; men were taboo and kept separate because of their bloody lifestyle – women didn’t touch the kill let alone eat it (please see Evelyn Reed’s Women’s Evolution). The wise women, as consciousness continued to devolve, struggled to maintain their precious lifestyle attuned to the Earth, her creatures and cycles. Continue reading
