Plutonic Halloween Party Preparing Us for 2020

Buried Treasure of the Psyche

Pluto Stations Direct 2019: Our Ultimate Halloween Party

Or “It’s my party and I’ll fly if I want to”

Hey there, fellow Cosmic Traveler!

Raise your hand if you’re 

Terrified, touched, amazed, overwhelmed… thrilled

Strangely electrified, alive feeling, even though every sane fiber in your being screams that “normal” is over with. It has officially left the building, never to return. 

Because a new “normal” has arrived. It’s change. Rapid change.

Change is coming and we can feel it on the deepest soul level if we allow it. 

Pluto went direct a few hours ago, but not really. From now till Halloween, it s l o w l y changes apparent momentum. It looks and feels like it’s standing still, right there on 20 degrees of Capricorn. 

“Oooooh, yummy!” said nobody I know. 

And yet… 

This is a most powerful resurfacing from the mysterious, often downright dangerous underworld of self, community, and our world at large. 

The most potent way we can show up is to be brave enough to stare over the abyss, to see the bottomless pit of self-limiting behaviors of a bygone era, be it personal or communal… and to jump over it, maybe even accept a helping hand to cross over that perilous divide that is presenting itself for our soul’s evolution.

Where is this happening in my life, you may ask?

It depends on wherever 20 degrees of Capricorn shows up in your birth chart. If you want a checkup to clear the detritus and plan for the rest of this year, please reach out. Like you, my calendar is filling up fast and I’d love to read for you.

One thing’s for certain: these are deeply transformational times

“Normal” is a word from a bygone era where our parents and grandparents lived at the peak of post-WWII, industrial revolution, 

There’s no use backing away, because there’s quick sand behind us, a mirage of “ordinary” that’s being dissolved, discombobulated, destroyed even at this moment.

Do you like Halloween?

If so, then Pluto just delivered an exquisitely wrapped gift of wildly wonderful, subterranean power to our psyches. 

Now is the ultimate makeover transformation before the Saturn/Pluto/Sun/Mars stellium of January 12, 2020* grinds into place. 

And it continues to unwrap itself, like an underworld advent calendar, a la Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas.

Here’s how it works:

At the end of April this year, both Saturn and Pluto went retrograde in the deepest, most sensitive ways possible. They likely awakened:

  • Slumbering emotional triggers, the kind with megawatts of power surging through your system, and asking the question: “Am I ready to let go of this outdated personal pattern? Am I willing to embrace a “right now” reality instead of a fortress around my heart? (insert Sting’s Fortress song)
  • Frozen parts of our lives where we were too busy tending to business or others to pay attention to our own mental operating system. Thought patterns that were on loop got exposed, asking: “Am I brave enough to take charge of my run-away brain when it comes to… ?”
  • Awareness of destructive physical habits, like eating or drinking mindlessly. Sexual habits of mind and body probably came up for attention, too, asking “If I were to stop pretending to myself, what do I really want here?”
  • Our Soul’s true purpose, asking “Are you really ready to start following your deepest, most beautiful wisdom? It starts with YOU.”

While that was a ton of fun (what, wait… it wasn’t?,) then this Halloween-flavored month of October WILL be if if have the courage to use these awakenings to propel us like a Phoenix rapidly rising from the ashes, reborn into something utterly new and intoxicatingly gorgeous.

All the spooky, dusty, dark, subterranean psyche theme fit perfectly. Pluto is the god of Death, he rules the underworld, sex, transformation, and hidden, mysteriously powerful things. 

We can arise from the depths refreshed, awakened, living in more power than ever before, because we’ve given up on so much gunk that was blocking our flow. 


Grab this moment, glory in the power of it, and MAKE PERSONAL HISTORY

by living moment to moment, adapting on the spot, staying awake and alive, realizing that anything can happen, miracles can easily shift because of all the power surging in this moment on 20 degrees of Capricorn all October. 

*Stay emotionally OPEN to changes as they present themselves, like an eagle in flight riding the currents of air. Effortless abandon.

  • Keep moving physically, remember to BREATHE when you’re surprised by a comment, development, announcement. Stay fluid.
  • Stay connected to the energetic field around you, remembering that we’re infinitely more powerful than this 3D hologram suggests. 
  • Take the RED PILL. It’s way more fun. 

Much love for you in these darkly transformational times,

Choosing The Sparkling Path of Possibility

sparkling path of possibilityChoosing The Sparkling Path of Possibility

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.”

Mark Twain

The Leadership themed book, Optimize Your Strengths, by James Brook and Dr. Paul Brewerton was a Finalist in the 2016 International Book awards, and closely echos the themes of the following startlingly prescient, inspiring adventure tale.

They say “Choose the path of possibility. The path of limitation is unproductive and drains your energy. The path of possibility gives a sense of power and enhances energy.”

We Are The Ones We’ve Been Waiting For

A local Artist and Wise-Woman named Barbara Odil introduced me to this powerful retelling of a Hopi Prophecy years ago, during a time of personal initiation.

A Hopi Elder Speaks

“You have been telling the people that this is the Eleventh Hour, now you must go back and tell the people that this is the Hour. And there are things to be considered… 

Where are you living?

What are you doing?

What are your relationships?

Are you in right relation?

Where is your water?

Know your garden.

It is time to speak your Truth.

Create your community.

Be good to each other.

And do not look outside yourself for the leader.

Then he clasped his hands together, smiled, and said, “This could be a good time!”

‘There is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold on to the shore. They will feel they are torn apart and will suffer greatly.

‘Know the river has its destination. The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open, and our heads above water.

And I say, see who is in there with you and celebrate. 

At this time in history we are to take nothing personally, least of all ourselves. For the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt.

The time for the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves! Banish the word “struggle” from your attitude and your vocabulary. All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration. 

We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.

Awe, Really? Sublime Monday Motivation

coffee, laptop and booksI know it’s Monday… And that can be tough.

Fortunately, we have an everlasting supply of blissfully transformative power at our disposal any time we want it. (What? Legalizing pot you say? Not exactly, though before I read for him, I smudged a young man who had the most clear energy I’ve ever sensed from someone so young and vibrant. LOL He said he smudges with pot smoke regularly!)

“Awe,” you say, “Come on! Give me something practical.”

Well, you are right, of course. Awe, is one of the most “awe-inspiring” frontiers of scientific inquiry in recent years. It turns out that “the feeling of being in the presence of something vast and greater than the self, that exceeds current knowledge structures” actually transforms our lives and creates a positive ripple effect into our communities.

Want an energizing little coffee break? ☕Check this out:

Awe, Wonder, and the Sublime

Up until 1757, the experience of Awe had always been cataloged as a religious experience. And, quite frankly, there might have been some theological turf wars concerning whose Awe was better than whose. This is human history over the past few millennia, but we could be in store for a much lighter, more mutually respectful, egalitarian age very soon.

In 1757, an Irish philosopher by the name of Edmund Burke published his treatise on aesthetics. He brilliantly liberated the ideas of Beauty and the Sublime from dusty religious tomes and democratized what we humans have known all along: that a sunset over the water can make our hearts swell and our knees go weak. Standing in the midst of enormous trees can overflow our senses in the most exquisite, never to be forgotten way.

Vastness, infinity, magnificence… they play on our nerves, activating even our fear of death. This, the sublime, transforms us. It upgrades our brains and enlarges our sense of being, our connection to “the knowing field,” as it is referred to in Constellation work. (For more, check out:

For some light reading, we could check out A Philosophical Enquiry into the Origin of Our Ideas of the Sublime and Beautiful, by Edmund Burke. But, simply speaking, I’ve never met anybody who didn’t come joyfully undone in the presence of profound beauty in nature.

Having served as a doula for mothers giving birth over the years, I can say that at the moment of birth, something miraculous charges the atmosphere.It’s as if time stands still, the veil opens, and becomes a part of you if you let it. Some of the best moments of my life have been nurturing a woman through childbirth. It’s been exquisite awe, wonder, and beauty of human spirit. Just last week I accompanied my daughter and son-in-law through the awe-inspiring, sublime experience of childbirth. An hour ago, I watched the sunset while cuddling my grand daughter. There are no words… heart overflowing.

“Let’s talk about this really fascinating family of experiences that really center upon feelings of beauty, the sense of the sacred, and then the experiences of awe. It’s this incredible landscape of human sentiment and emotion that have really been a focus for a long time in thinking about who we are but scientists have only attended to recently.”Dacher Keltner, Ph.D., Director of the Berkeley Social Interaction Lab

What experiences, landscapes, or items have induced feelings of awe in you?

Can you bring up the memory of somebody who has given you that feeling? How would you describe this “awe”some experience, not just physically but also emotionally? Did it inspire you to create or do something?
