Even though it might feel as if Mercury has been retrograde for months with the way the challenges have been coming at us, the last one of the year really starts on Tuesday, October 13 and ends on Tuesday, November 3, Election Day. That three week period makes communication wonky and we typically avoid buying big ticket items or signing any important documents or having medical procedures if we can help it. Read More
What happens next? It’s October, 2020! Chaos continues to ensue, what else?
While we’re experiencing Mars squaring Pluto and Saturn (aggression, war, power struggles) through October 20, we haven’t hit the confusion that will be Mercury retrograde (October 13 through November 3, Election Day!) Plus we have lots of other fun astrological, Earth-related and karmic things in store for us this month.
Since we experienced the big Energy Shift on the Jewish New Year (Friday, September 18), most of us have been adjusting to life in a new vibration. And that’s been really, really hard. With everything else we’re dealing with in our physical world (pandemic, political chaos, picking up each others fear), we just got thrown, not lifted but thrown, a mile high closer to Heaven (or the Aquarian Age vibe which can feel like Heaven in these times).

Did anyone else feel the fear and restlessness over the weekend? There was a lack of balance, a strong need to be comforted (especially in my cats) and a loss of energy to do anything because whatever we did do felt like it wasn’t right or enough. That’s directly related to the Jewish New Year energy shift (starting at sundown last Friday) and the loss of our Notorious RBG on the same day. Read More
Over the last seven years, the challenges of our Age to Age evolution have been getting stronger and more demanding each year, leading up to 2020 which brings us to either graduation or failure. As we’ve dealt with those challenges (or not), there’s been a trend to anticipate the end of the year holidays as a time that will make us feel better, usually based on experiences we had when we were young. Except we recently have been looking forward to the holidays with desperation and anger to give us relief after a difficult year. Basically, we just want things to be easier when they’re not and feel we deserve a reward even though we’re still in challenge mode. The shifting energy doesn’t care about man-made holidays—there’s bigger work being done. Read More
Happy Labor Day! May this day have more meaning than it usually does in helping us be grateful for the work we have, the work we lost and will have again and the abundance we have in this country, even though we can easily forget that. I hope you’ve had a wonderful long weekend.
OUR NEXT CHALLENGE
Goodbye the year that was August! Hello the year that is September! Although the August energy of Karmic Catch-up/Hungry Ghosts Month leaks into the first week of September (the final week of our reassessing and rebirthing ourselves in the New Age), we now come into a new challenge. But what did we expect from 2020, the year that keeps on giving, even after it’s over?
We get so used to stress, even the extra stress of this year, that we frequently don’t recognize when it’s stronger than usual. It’s the “Frog in Boiling Water Syndrome”. Place a frog in boiling water and he’ll jump right out. Place a frog in cool water and slowly boil it and he gets used to the rising temperature until it’s too late. A lot of us are the latter category right now. Except in this case, the boiling water is our evolutionary shift into the next level of being human. Read More
So, we’re in the most challenging karmic catch-up month of any year, in the challenging karmic catch-up year of our lives, with retrogrades swirling around us making us look deeply into ourselves, and planets fighting in the cosmos to bring transformation and enlightenment—even if it seems that transformation and enlightenment comes via a sledgehammer. But no one said changing a mindset that’s lasted at least 2,000 years into another completely different mindset would be easy. So here we are. Read More
Since Mars started squaring Saturn and Pluto last Monday, July 27 (bringing aggression, war and power struggles), in addition to Mars being in Aries (masculine lessons now coming forward in anger), we’ve been hit with some pretty weird, stressful energy. On that Monday last week, my phone, computer, internet and Constant Contact all went weird. Dee, the lovely lady who publishes my stuff through Constant Contact, wasn’t able to get my newsletter out until much later than usual as the site was down until late evening. And even though she called me several times to let me know, nothing rang through to my phone. I didn’t get her messages until the next day. That chaos continued all last week. It felt like Mercury retrograde on steroids (and still does) even though Mercury is direct. Read More
