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
My father was in physical education with the YMCA all his life. He was the exercise guy, the sports guy, the team guy, the push-to-the-limit guy. He loved it. After he finished leading a workout and everyone’s muscles were sore, he’d say that soreness was a Good Hurt. The workout uplifted the body, got blood circulating, improved lung capacity, made everyone more agile, stronger, and feeling better about themselves…even though their muscles were really sore.

BUT FIRST…A NOTE ABOUT ANGER
Considering how disconcerting the energy of 2020 is, and how it’s becoming more chaotic and scary as we get through the second half of the year (at least on an energetic level as changes intensify), please watch for anger to be at an all time high for the next couple of months.
I had something else entirely planned for this week’s post, then Master Astrologer and Sage, Gahl Sasson, published this on Saturday and I felt the information was too valuable to not pass on. If you have yet to subscribe to his blog (www.cosmicnavigator.com), here is what he wrote for the challenging months of July and August:
MARS IN ARIES
JUNE 28, 2020 TO JANUARY 6, 2021
Last week in my post on “Upcoming Challenges”, I mentioned that on Sunday, June 28, Mars, the god/planet of war, moved into his home sign of Aries, the sign of war, until January 1, 2021. With that, plus Mars conflicting with Pluto and Saturn from July 27 to October 20, 2020, we could find ourselves dealing with a real war (or the threat of one), not just in the United States, but in any nation on the planet.
