Not quite yet…

Hold yourself back, just a couple more days. Don’t let Jupiter pull you out ahead of yourself!! Wait until after Christmas to allow the big to go BIG! Things undertaken during Retrogrades often require re-doing after going direct.

Mercury is direct early Sag, Uranus is direct early Aries. Jupiter still retrograde near beginning of Taurus. We are getting another pass at energies that we had the opportunity to go through earlier. This time we have a little more of our mastery within our grasp, have weeded out some of the people and experiences that were less than our dreams, are more willing to go for it – having seen the consequences of not – and when Jupiter turns around on the 25th we will be ready to go BigGER!! and further with more confidence and commitment. Girls to Women. Boys to Men. All of us to confident innocence with the ability to back ourselves up with our soul’s authority. The arrow has arrived at the target before the hand touches the sinew. . . or not. Be the strong direction of your own trajectory.

The sun is in Leo now. Explore your creativity!

Sorry you have to cut and paste this url, but I can’t get the vid to load and you must see this – its so inspiring!

Three eclipses, 6 weeks of focused energetic mystery, and the Sun in tender Cancer.  Aquarians seem to be slowing down to notice their bodies, Librans seem to be noticing themselves, and Aries might be valuing themselves a little deeper.  Everyone else but Scorpio seems to be surfing the bumps and downgrades successfully with some turbulence.  Scorpio just can’t seem to let the deep dive come up – still struggling to go all the way, refusing to miss anything importantly passionately painful.

Scorpio, beloved Scorpio, come up for some air.

We need your passionate, deep, rich, experience of the magnitude of humanness to point the way toward joy, a passionate creation of the new realities and an explosive tantra of sublime stillness.

Do that . . .

then call me for dinner and spend the night.

Japan – A Japanese Monk Sent this Prayer Request

The damage of the earthquake in Japan is devastating.
Unable to cool down the reactor, we are facing a possibility of nuclear
transplant explosion.
Please join our prayer. Feel free to forward this prayer request to anyone.
It would be great if more people can pray.

Here is a translation of a message/oracle from the Ise Shrine in Japan:

After sunset we need strong power of prayer.
Please let me deliver the message to as many as possible.
We can stop this earthquake with our prayers, but right now the nuclear
plant is in danger.

Please heal the suffering, sadness, anger, worry about nuclear

Please care for each other.
The energy toward conflict and fight is also fueling the things happening
right now.
Please stop the conflict and stop the fight and change the worrying voice
to the power of prayer.
Please pray that as many people as possible can be saved.

We will be O.K.
If our hearts start connecting with each other the earth will be healed.

There are the sounds/vibrations that can release the karma of earth.
Anyone who can make a prayer sound, anyone who can do reiki,
anyone who can do long distance healing,
please direct your energy to the center of Japan .
The exact location is above the Hachiro gata, Akita Prefecture .

If you can sing, please sing.
Humming is fine too.
Let the earth listen to the sound.

Please send gratitude to the earth.
If  mother earth wakes up, everything will stop.
The word Song/Sing writes in Japanese Kanji – small possibilities
support a big lack.
Please send your prayer to the Earth to wake up the Spirit.

I will be in meditation after the sunset.
I will pray for the light shining in the sky even in the darkness.
May everyone be safe.
Thank you for supporting my heart at this very difficult time.
Gratitude for our life.



This beautiful letter came from a student in Sendai telling of his experience since the earthquake/tsunami hit. It reinforces the truth that hardship can fuel the greatest bonds between people. It also encourages us to continue sending our love and support, and seeing this as a re-birthing for all humanity, one we have all been working toward…

A letter from Sendai

Things here in Sendai have been rather surreal. But I am very blessed to have wonderful friends who are helping me a lot. Since my shack is even more worthy of that name, I am now staying at a friend’s home. We share supplies like water, food and a kerosene heater. We sleep lined up in one room, eat by candlelight, share stories. It is warm, friendly, and beautiful.

During the day we help each other clean up the mess in our homes. People sit in their cars, looking at news on their navigation screens, or line up to get drinking water when a source is open. If someone has water running in their home, they put out a sign so people can come to fill up their jugs and buckets.

It’s utterly amazingly that where I am there has been no looting, no pushing in lines. People leave their front door open, as it is safer when an earthquake strikes. People keep saying, “Oh, this is how it used to be in the old days when everyone helped one another.”

Quakes keep coming. Last night they struck about every 15 minutes. Sirens are constant and helicopters pass overhead often.

We got water for a few hours in our homes last night, and now it is for half a day. Electricity came on this afternoon. Gas has not yet come on. But all of this is by area. Some people have these things, others do not. No one has washed for several days. We feel grubby, but there are so much more important concerns than that for us now. I love this peeling away of non-essentials. Living fully on the level of instinct, of intuition, of caring, of what is needed for survival, not just of me, but of the entire group.

There are strange parallel universes happening. Houses a mess in some places, yet then a house with futons or laundry out drying in the sun. People lining up for water and food, and yet a few people out walking their dogs. All happening at the same time.

Other unexpected touches of beauty are first, the silence at night. No cars. No one out on the streets. And the heavens at night are scattered with stars. I usually can see about two, but now the whole sky is filled. The mountains are Sendai are solid and with the crisp air we can see them silhouetted against the sky magnificently.

And the Japanese themselves are so wonderful. I come back to my shack to check on it each day, now to send this e-mail since the electricity is on, and I find food and water left in my entranceway. I have no idea from whom, but it is there. Old men in green hats go from door to door checking to see if everyone is OK. People talk to complete strangers asking if they need help. I see no signs of fear. Resignation, yes, but fear or panic, no.

They tell us we can expect aftershocks, and even other major quakes, for another month or more. And we are getting constant tremors, rolls, shaking, rumbling. I am blessed in that I live in a part of Sendai that is a bit elevated, a bit more solid than other parts. So, so far this area is better off than others. Last night my friend’s husband came in from the country, bringing food and water. Blessed again.

Somehow at this time I realize from direct experience that there is indeed an enormous Cosmic evolutionary step that is occurring all over the world right at this moment. And somehow as I experience the events happening now in Japan, I can feel my heart opening very wide. My brother asked me if I felt so small because of all that is happening. I don’t. Rather, I feel as part of something happening that much larger than myself. This wave of birthing (worldwide) is hard, and yet magnificent.

Winter Solstice Energy is pretty dramatic this year.  Take this basketball hanging out on the rim after bouncing 6 feet off it – just sitting there waiting for another player to wave an energy up at it and tip it in.  I personally love the way he waves the energy up in just the correct direction and velocity to tip it in AND he knows it!

This clip is such a great example of how we use energy and then talk about physics as if the world were still normal.  This place is not normal anymore.  Every wild card and joker in the universe is in play.  We are manifesting consciousness and un-manifesting, complicating and entangling, unraveling, unwinding and loosening our grip on the reality we used to know.  In many ways its getting easier as it gets more fluid, but at the same time we are called to practice our own impeccability at a much higher level than ever before.  Don’t let any communications slide or neglect to say thank-you, please, and permission.  This instant manifestation also means that there’s little slack and we need to cultivate magnificent grace to make up for that.

Notice how your thoughts and previous experience have cut a groove that you may want to step out of.  Do it with your awareness, take a minute to notice that you are rerunning and breathe into a new reality, then act in a new way.  Knowledge only counts if you live it.  Having it in your head but not doing it isn’t “it” yet.  Do it, do everything you know. Do it now, with what you’ve got.  We’re all in this together.

Pay attention and hone your awareness for the real juice of life, show up for the party, tell the truth and let go.  Cultivate love and compassion with un-attachment, hold things gently and allow for more than you hope.
