The Capricorn moon will be the reincarnation of Spirit emerging from the dark waters of our past emotions and releasing us from our fear of change and our fear of loss. Awaken your powerful and positive spiritual connection to be open to new possibilities. Ask yourself to release your emotional loyalty to the past. We are reminded of our need for material and emotional security at this time. In order to ensure this, we must learn to build a foundation for ourselves that is lit from within, made from the materials of love, goodwill, and intelligence.
When first contemplating 2018, I saw a vision of DNA strands circling in bright lights. The lights contained all the all numbers and planets within the boundaries of the DNA geometry. It was quite a sight and has become the inspiration for the Year 2018, the Year of Illumination.
In Tibetan Numerology, 2018 is an 11 year. When we reach the number 11, the Universe makes a cycle of completion and gateways open to a space of wonder. When something is complete it reaches a level of perfection. We all receive a recalibration of refinement and illumination that holds space in eternity. It is something quite wonderful when all is included and nothing is left out. The challenges in numerology become blessings under the umbrella of eleven. This allows for all that has been created to be renewed in the space of eternity and infinity, illuminated in its vastness. We must accept the embrace of this enhanced height and width by opening to all the surprises that will come forth and be presented to us. Spend time this year holding your arms out wide as a symbol of capturing assigned and un-assigned fields of energy. This establishes pathways flowing to you so the fulfillment of the year’s promise can be yours.
After the first day of 2018 we begin the year without any retrogrades and move forward without planetary resistance until March. In other words we have left our romantic/emotional attachment to the past behind in 2017. The opening act of the full moon on day one did a clean sweep, making sure we entered this year squeaky clean.
We then moved into home base with Saturn returning to Capricorn after a 27-year journey, joining the Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Pluto. This set a structural baseline for the year, setting the stage for success and accomplishment. We must remember it is Capricorn that asks us to be useful, or to be used. Let’s look at the planets and see the structural support available to us to do so. We see the Sun there as the director shining the light motivating self-fulfillment. We have Mercury providing the words or language to produce the results required. Then Venus opens the creative process to be applied under the umbrella of practicality, a rare moment in time for Venus. Last, but not least, Pluto will manifest it for you when you get survival out of the question and simply go for the gusto. It is your ability to respond that leads you up the mountain top, all the tools are available to Go—Go—Go NOW.
As we round the bend toward 2018, it is time to become aware of a major game-changer energy that we will be living with during 2018. After a three-year stay, Saturn is moving out of Sagittarius, which had a flattening effect on adventure and inspiration. It is good to note that Saturn is the Karmic Technician in the zodiac, working diligently to keep us in the logical world by constantly reporting to us what’s wrong, not what’s right. This has been very a difficult experience—having the “flat iron” of Saturn flattening all the wrinkles out of any optimism, resulting in a defeatism attitude that seems to have penetrated race consciousness, into vast and extreme exhaustion.
Hold on to your hats—the good news that on December 19th Saturn moved into Capricorn and at long last he is home, after 27 years! For the last few weeks Saturn has been void and living under the Galactic Gateway along with Mercury Retrograde, leaving us with zero grounding to hold such chaos. So Mercury is out of retrograde now and Saturn is home at last! Let’s let the dust settle and recalibrate into the new version of “Self”, so life can now catch up with itself and become new. Remember Saturn leaves us with a choice around responsibility and self-fulfillment. Remember if you are blaming outside yourself, you are avoiding responsibility and fulfillment can’t be realized. Saturn is the leader of the patrilocal aspect of life and all that is changing.
Resistance is exhausting and now that Saturn is home, an alignment is possible in government and world systems. I would expect a coming together in the long haul. The United States is astrologically a Cancer and opposite Capricorn, meaning that the two aspects are on different ends of the same baton. This pairing promotes the underbelly of Cancer to merge with the shadow aspects supported by Capricorn. I am holding the space for this long-awaited union to present us with an integration on many levels. Freedom comes to those who accept responsibility and remove blame from their experience. I am ready to be fulfilled
The entire holiday season is a symbolic ritual that allows us to align with the natural cycles of fullness and the natural cycles of releasing so that we can become void, empty and open to receive the new cycle of manifestation in the Spring. The process of gift giving and gift receiving provides us with the perfect symbolic background for connecting to the cycles of manifestation that nature demonstrates to us during this most powerful time.
You Are the Gift!
The giving part of the equation is the acknowledgement of your abundance. In the truest sense, giving is the release of stored energy (i.e. abundance). This release of stored abundance allows you to become void and gives space for new life to be birthed in the Spring, just as nature drops its leaves and these leaves become the mulch for the new sprouts to germinate in the Spring.
To effectively commence the cycle of giving, you must buy yourself the first gift. This will make buying for others more effective and save you a lot of money. Remember, there is a difference between a gift and a present. A present is something you want someone to have, a gift is something you know the receiver wants to receive.
You are the Receiver!
The symbology of receiving is very important, for without it the cycle cannot be complete. Unfortunately, our culture has ignored this part of the equation by promoting an axiom that is not true, “it is better to give than to receive.” When receiving a gift, you are given the privilege to see the power of your magnetic field that is symbolic of the manifested results of your year´s experience. Your ability to receive sets up a manifesting field for the New Event structure in the NEW CYCLE! I am reminded of my teacher Barbra Dillenger´s most powerful words:
“You are the Gift, the Beginning of the Cycle
You are the giver, the Completion of the Cycle
You are the Receiver, the Result of the Cycle.”
REMEMER THAT IT IS GRATITUDE THAT MAKES IT ALL REAL
The underbelly of every fear is our fear of death.
Perfectionism is Death…
Impermanence is Life…
Perfectionism stops life. When we are into perfectionism, we want everything to be the same. We want to freeze frame an experience we thought was perfect, stop time, and stay there. Oftentimes perfectionism keeps us from attempting any kind of action. “If I can’t be the best, I won’t even try.” “If I don’t look good, I won’t go anywhere.“ “If I can’t be the boss, I don’t want the job.” etc… etc… etc… Perfectionism leads to defeatism and keeps us stuck in fear of disapproval by a standard of perceived excellence. We then spend hours of our precious time here on Earth managing an image of life rather than living life.
If you find yourself reading this it is important for you to see where perfectionism is freeze framing you from living life. Take a moment to see where you might be living by someone else’s standard and not being true to yourself. Remember, narcissism is caring what other people think and leaves little room for self development. Life is the continuum of impermanent event structures providing experiences for us to evolve through action, change, development and refinement. The standard is provided for you and set by this galaxy, the galaxy of adaptation. Under this umbrella, we come to know that life is always changing. When we keep our polarities moving along with the movement of the galaxy, we will come to know truth as beauty and motion as harmony.
On the Full Moon we have an opportunity to let go and set ourselves free from parts of our life that are not working. We are now living in a quantum reality where past and future are no longer a reality. So with this in mind I have come up with the word for letting go in this new dimension, this word is re-calibration. Re-calibration takes the idea of letting go into the past and future, as well as other dimensions where stuckness still occurs.
For example, you want great wealth so you might want to re-calibrate any blocks to achieving great wealth. In so doing the concept of recalibration will eliminate any past dimensions where one might have taken a vow of poverty.
Re-calibration asks us to expand, supersede, and include so that the block can no longer be a block. It also allows transformation to happen without death, which is huge because because that eliminates fear where change is happening.
Mercury went out of retrograde yesterday giving us the gift of a new year without any leftovers. Now the gateway is open until retrogrades start on February 5th. This will give you all a boost on the acceleration energy for the year.
Many of you have shared it is hard to know what to focus on as a goal or intent. Now that Mercury is direct all the glory and fun of the new possibilities will start coming forward. 2017 is a “10” year and is all about new beginnings, so expect your higher-self to be presenting many visions, coming attractions, and previews to be in your field. The best perspective is to take time with these and watch them as if you were at the movies. A shot-gun effect will be the best way to go. This will keep your options open and experience will show you the way go. You may notice these visions grow as you apply action to them. Then acceleration will begin.
The Moon is full in Cancer on the 12th make sure you get your re-calibration list ready so your slate is clear of the past so acceleration is easy. The Moon goes into Leo one hour after the Moon is full. So at that time you will see what coming attraction has a leading roll waiting for you!
Peace is a polarity. Opposites (polarities) work hand-in-hand, so when we focus on one aspect of a polarity we give energy to the opposite end of the polarity. In other words, we can’t know one side of a polarity without knowing its opposite. When we pray for Peace, we create its opposite … War. Peace is the absence of conflict and requires war, the activation of conflict, to determine itself. We make War to create Peace. This polarity, (Peace/War) is so strong in our consciousness and so deeply embedded in our cells that it is guaranteed to work.
Perhaps we need a new prayer that doesn’t have such a great polarity attachment. The earth plane is a school where we learn through conflict and resistance. When we make resistance our teacher rather than our enemy, we can reduce conflict and advance as a civilization beyond war to a place called Paradise.
It is a good idea to sit down and examine what you are warring with in your life and in your mind. Write down your biggest conflicts and resistances. Ask yourself where are you rebelling. Discover what you are praying for, consciously or unconsciously, and then look for the opposite side of your prayer to see what you are creating for yourself. The elimination of conflict comes when we embrace the conflict and its polarity. Accept the fact that you have the ability to advance beyond conflict, by including it in your experience rather than fighting with it.
The energy of the new moon according to the Sabian Symbol at 7-degrees Scorpio has a lot to do with Reflection. I was taught by my Tibetan teacher that according to the Arcane Laws when we master Reflection we get the gift of Infinite Awareness. The pathway moving towards mastering the Law of Reflection starts with knowing judgement as a reflection. When we find ourselves judging we must recognize whatever we judge we are, we fear, or we lack. The election has brought this into the foreground better than anything I have ever experienced. So I will present you with a major Tarot Question:
Shuffle your cards and ask, “how does Trump represent me?” Shuffle again and ask, “how does Hilary represent me?” Depending on how judgmental you are, you may not want to pull cards.
Whatever you judge you are, you fear, or you lack
Under the Arcane Laws that govern this Galaxy of Adaptation, we need to look at the Fourth Arcane Law: the Law of Reflection. The Law of Reflection shows us and demonstrates to us self definition. We have the opportunity to see ourselves in every moment by what we have attracted to us. It is our attraction and what we do with our attraction that allows or disallows manifestation to occur. When judgment comes into play it is a good sign to get conscious and look in the mirror. It is judgment that shows us who we are, whether conscious or unconscious.
To work with judgment from a conscious space we must ask ourselves three questions:
- Am I judging what I am and what I am unwilling to accept in myself? In truth the answer is “yes” because you cannot put a label on anything unless you know it within yourself. This axiom allows for self discovery and releases projected judgment. Thus, judgment becomes your greatest teacher and self evaluator. Judgment teaches us what we need to understand and accept in ourselves.
- Am I judging what I fear? Whenever fear comes into play it is a good sign for us to note that we are separated from love and unwilling to communicate that we see ourselves as unlovable. Remember, what you fear you bring to yourself. Once again, the Law of Reflection comes into play and we attract people, places, or events that we judge as bad or wrong because we fear them. If used correctly, these attractions are opportunities to express our fear. It is often fear that blocks our experience and our soul purpose, for being on the Earth Plane is to experience. If we are too judgmental and critical of others a paranoia occurs promoting a fear that permeates our daily lives, blocking and paralyzing our experience, reflecting to us our fear of being judged. Fear-based judgments teach us where we have judged ourselves as unlovable.
- Am I judging what I lack? Lack is the denial of manifestation. When we deny ourselves the privilege of manifesting we have to spend a lot of time justifying our unmanifested self. So we then begin judging what other people have done in order to manifest and we defend our powerlessness with justification. When we find ourselves judging someone for having something we don´t have, this is a sign that shows us where we have sold out and denied ourselves the abundance that is available to us at all times here on the Earth Plane. Ask yourself, “have I denied myself Abundance?” If the answer is “yes”, make a wish list and go for it!
Perhaps you have been too critical of yourself and others. If so, it is time to look into the mirror of reflection and ask: Am I judging what I am? Am I judging what I fear? Am I judging what I lack?
February has a special magic in it for those who want to allow themselves to experience the highroad. This month is filled with many concepts intertwining into a big ball of yarn that may take the entire year to unwind.
The Sun is in Aquarius—time connect with your vision and get ready to pick out your Dream Team. While picking, consider their response to, *Opportunity *Brotherhood *Uniqueness *Self Reliance.
- We have the 5 month Jupiter mystery asking us to recalibrate our power, or the lack of power, leftover from 2004. Questions to ask yourself: “Where was my home then?” “How was my health?” “Who was my love partner?” Locate a place where your power was in each of those areas. Come to know the difference.
- Year of the Monkey sets the stage for good fortune through agility in your career activating wealth and good fortune. Flexibility and versatility are the markers for success in all areas. Impatience and a short fuse will make set-backs happen. Watch out for pouncing on those below you to get attention and superiority portrayed by copping an attitude that looks down on others.
- The South Node (our tool box from the past) conjunct with Chiron (the wounded healer) asking us to recalibrate what we consider to be our wounds, so that they will no longer hinder our perception of “the now.” We must reconcile with the pain in our body as a glorified need to be ruled by our past, thus keeping our vision from manifesting. It is time to remember that our body is our karmic storage bin that gets filled with unrealized data that we were unable to process at the time. So the South Node conjunct with Chiron is here to assist us in cleaning out the clutter in our body. So we can live in the now and manifest the blessings available to us in the year of generosity. This will be ongoing throughout the year. Remember, emptiness has power in it.
- The North Node (future focus) connected to Jupiter (Abundance *Good Fortune) This is happening in Virgo, the healing/service constellation. We will come to know health as wealth and service as good fortune. It will be our generosity that will feed the heart of health and service. Let’s Let the games begin!
Preparation for The Year of Generosity begins now and we must be aware that in order to live in generosity our manifestation skills need to be sharpened. December 2015 sets the stage perfectly for this to actualize by placing Jupiter, the planet of abundance, next to the North Node, an energy field that sets the future focus in our lives. It all happens in the house of Virgo that promotes service. The best way to ignite this energy is to find something you are passionate about and get involved. Great gifts and blessings will come from this beyond your wildest dreams. By the time the 25th gets here Uranus the planet of our future will be out of retrograde and unpeeling our future self and we will be ready to manifest.
Manifestation comes to those who know cycles. Cycles are amplified to us when we look at nature, especially when we see nature evolving into its fullness in autumn. Autumn is a time when nature reflects to us our own fullness so we can become aware of what we have manifested. We see through the cycles of nature, the process of manifesting by watching the germination in spring come into fullness in summer and then releasing in autumn. Winter provides for us the awareness required to truly manifest by creating a void.
The entire holiday season is a symbolic ritual that allows us to align with the natural cycles of fullness and the natural cycles of releasing so that we can become void, empty and open to receive the new cycle of manifestation in the spring. The process of gift giving and gift receiving provides us with the perfect symbolic background for connecting to the cycles of manifestation that nature demonstrates to us during this most powerful time.
You Are the Gift! The giving part of the equation is the acknowledgement of your abundance. In the true sense, giving is the release of stored energy (i.e. abundance). This stored abundance release allows you to become void and gives space for new life to be birthed in the spring, just as nature drops it´s leaves and these leaves become the mulch for the new sprouts to germinate in the spring.

I am reminded of my teacher Barbra Dillenger´s most powerful words:
“You are the Gift, the Beginning of the Cycle
You are the giver, the Completion of the Cycle
You are the Receiver, the Result of the Cycle.”
This comes from my Tibetan teacher who is no longer on this side. Since this is the month that opens to the idea of love with Valentine’s Day, I thought you all might enjoy how he used Tibetan Numerology to gather the essence of a word:
All words, regardless of what language we use, have numerological value. That is, each word in a language resonates to a particular frequency range of vibration. The letters in the word are links in the vibratory chain and tell us what the word is really meant to express or have us do to fulfill its meaning.
Love is a four-letter word. It has then, four links. Each link has to be taken in sequence. It is that sequence that defines how the manifested action of the word will flow. By following the vibratory sequence, we then have an absolute guide to the word’s meaning and the results we can achieve by using it.
Link #1 … The letter L = 3 … Creative.
The creative quality is not limited. It can follow a design if it likes, but more often than not, it follows its own natural flow. The first link tell us that love is not to be given a system or style other than that which we wish to apply. When two people meet, they find creative ways of attracting and interfacing. The more creative, the more chance love has to manifest. With no rules to worry about, two people can find the unique and exciting elements of each other.
Link #2 … The letter O = 10 … Progressive.
Stagnation will defeat love energy just as well as it will defeat any form of growth. This link in the chain tells us to move onward. It warns against repetition and apathy. It opens the door to unlimited possibilities and urges us to find new places and expressions. It transforms us from the usual and expected to the innovative and spontaneous.
Link #3 … The letter V = 9 … Emotions.
Love, to be love, must be felt. The emotions conveyed and heightened by the five physical senses are what this link brings to our attention. Sometimes it is joy, sometimes pain, but always a consuming awareness that we are involved in something deeper than our intellect and stronger than our desires. We are asked to transform physical emotions into spiritual emotions and find love on its highest level. Only then will we understand its complete meaning.
Link #4 … The letter E = 5 … Energy.
Love is not static. It is a powerful force, generating more energy as it is used. It is a perpetual motion machine, a nuclear power plant; a galactic nova. It is never content to just be. It must find new mountains to climb, new adventures to pursue. It welcomes challenge as it brings out the best in us.
The next time you ask yourself if you’re in love, ask yourself if you are creative, progressive, emotional and energetic about the relationship. If the answer is, “yes”, then proceed with confidence. You may have found the right person to be with.”
January 30th at 1:38 pm PST The New Moon in Aquarius brings us to a new level of awareness by opening the gateway for the Year of the Wood Horse. The Year of the Horse is considered auspicious in many ways; symbolically the Horse represents the power of action, mobility, and strength. It points us in the direction of freedom, independence, and happiness. It is highly energized and will take us on a ride beyond our wildest dreams. The key here is to take your controlling hands off the reigns and enjoy the ride. Slowing the Horse down will get nowhere and leave you behind in the dust.
The last two years we have been swimming in the Water element, facing deep emotional issues with the Dragon and the Snake. These reptiles have been presenting us with second dimensional power known as survival. This survival process revealed to us many emotions and feeling from lifetimes to transform, transmute, and accept as part of our primal self. The Dragon brought to a place where we could pierce the veil of illusion and remove our ego attachment to that illusion. The Snake brought us the ability to transform so that our personal evolution could occur.
We now are on solid ground and get to ride the Horse. It is a Wood Horse; the element of Wood will teach us how to contain our watery emotional-creative process and manifest a magnetic field for receiving gifts. Get ready for the ride of a lifetime.
