The June Solstice of 2015

Written by Sherrie Locke on 4 Tzi and 5 Batz, June 2015.

Solstice

Happy Solstice!

Welcome to the first Solstice of 2015. We welcome the element of Fire into the Northern hemisphere and the element of Earth in the Southern hemisphere.

The exact time of the Suns entry into Cancer (in western astrology) marks the Solstice which occurs at 12:38 PM on the US East coast, 9:38 AM on the Pacific coast of the US, 16:39 GMT (UT). It’s also Father’s Day in the US. Rather appropriate since we have been in a cycle of processing Male/Father issues for a while now.

This Solstice occurs on 6 Road on the calendar Maya in a Deer trecena (13 day cycle) which is very powerful in itself.

This entry into Cancer will feel like a ‘slingshot effect’ for many, we are moving from a time of focusing and cleaning up our intentions and setting trajectory to a time of full on action. As soon as the Fire element hits its entry point it will set us on a course of Right ACTION. If you are reading this blog you are with us on the cutting edge of the 5D shift.

Many of you still have people in your circles that are clearly embedded in the density of the 3D, this can be uncomfortable at minimum and if you are resonating at a higher frequency it can make these relationships uncomfortable to deal with. Take a deep breath and remember you are only responsible for your own actions.

This entry into Cancer will clearly show where changes must occur and could be stressful if you are resistant to change in general. Comfortable or not, the time is now. Keep your trajectory on point to your goal and prime directive. Distractions abound and 3D’ers can prove to be maddening to interact with and definitely (if we allow it) pull our energies down. Just remember, you have a choice in all of this to interact or pass.

The Sacred Holidays and how they work for us…

There are four sacred holidays each year that mark the change of elements or seasons. The progression of the elements shift the energy into a completely different flow every three months, thus four seasons, four elements, AIR, FIRE, WATER and EARTH.

Since it is Winter Solstice in the Southern hemisphere and the Summer Solstice in the Northern hemisphere, North and South, the energies are very different.

Here’s a rundown of how this works. I will first base it on the Northern Hemisphere since that is where I am (geographically) at this point.

Entry into Aries, Spring Equinox. Element of AIR. The time of Right INTENTION. Air element relates to our thinking/thoughts/intentions.

Entry into Cancer, Summer Solstice. Element of FIRE. The time of Right ACTION. Fire element relates to movement.

Entry into Libra, Autumnal Equinox, Element of WATER, the time of right EMOTIONS. Water element relates to our feelings and emotions.

and finally…

Entry into Capricorn, Winter Solstice, Element of EARTH, the time of Right RECEIVING. Earth element relates to receiving and manifestation of the energies we have been focused on in the previous three elements.

It works like this in the Southern hemisphere…

The Autumnal Equinox occurs at the exact same time as the Spring Equinox in the Northern hemisphere. Summer Solstice in the Northern hemisphere is the exact same time as the Winter Solstice in the Southern hemisphere. So you see how certain things must be adjusted in regard to your location, so you are able to optimize the energy wherever you are on the globe at any time.

One can utilize this energy for international travel and it has business applications as well. If you are an international business person this can benefit you greatly. To be conscious of how this works puts you 10 steps ahead in the game. *Always a good thing.

Within these elemental cycles there are three phases (and also three months)…

1. Entry into the element
2. Full energy of the element
3. Preparation for the next element

To master and optimize these energies gives you a huge heads up as to timing. If you have other questions about how this works or are interested in business consultation let me know, I have been using this for years.

To sum up the energies we are about to shift into let me say that this is a time to either take Action toward your dreams (Northern hemisphere) or to open your arms to Receive (Southern hemisphere) what you have made manifest in this last gestation period. Either way, have fun with it, stay out of drama and distractions, believe in yourself and your dreams. Be a blessing in your own life and the lives of others or cease the activity all together and reboot, the choice is yours.

I wish for all of you that your greatest dreams and blessings be made manifest and your consciousness expand beyond all measure.

In LVX,
May this Solstice be a turning point in your life to achieve your greatest mastery.

New Moon with a Mercury Retro on Top

Written by Sherrie Locke on 10 Caban/Noj, May 17, 2015.

I haven’t posted in a while, partially due to the fact that I am (almost) in the middle of my Path of the Plummed Serpent, partly due to the fact that I myself have been indulging in the transformative energies at hand. I bet you have been having a time with the energies too (hopefully a good time).

Here we are, already in the middle of May. This is the last full lunar phase before we change elements on the Solstice in June. This feature of Mercury going into the core of the retrograde at the same time the moon is moving into the next cycle is super interesting. It is giving us one last round of review before we enter the next element on the coming Solstice, which for us here in the Northern hemisphere is an exit from the element of AIR, the element of RIGHT INTENT and entering into the element of FIRE which is the element of RIGHT ACTION. For those of you in the Southern hemisphere, you will be exiting the element of WATER the place of RIGHT FAITH/EMOTIONS and entering the element of EARTH the place of RIGHT RECEIVING.

You might ask WHY I am explaining all this the month prior to this event, well, there is a purpose. There are approximately 3 lunar phases in each element, the first is the entry segment, the second is the full energy of that element, the third is the energy preparing us for the next element. What have the last two lunar phases shown you about yourself and others? Where do further changes need to occur to optimize your run through the next element. I am most certain the Universe (You) is showing this to you. If you cannot yet see it, don’t worry, this Mercury retro will bring it up for you to view, review and revamp.

The good news, as always, is… you don’t have to make these changes all at once. The more you willingly make the changes the faster you will transform and be on a totally different platform to achieve the goals in your life. Cleansed, purified, streamlined and ready to rock. The more we willingly let go of control of the way it manifests the bigger and better it can and will manifest. It’s all about holding that space and vision with PASSION.

If you have done your internal work properly you have overcome your internal obstacles and the path opens up ahead of you and all you have to do at that point is say YES and walk through the door into your newest manifestation. It’s as simple as that.
Blog photo-2*side note: when what you have been asking for arrives, you must honor it by letting it change you and your life. If you say no, now is not the time, you may never have the chance again, so be prepared for a huge shift and willing to say yes to the changes when they occur.

Technical details:

This New Moon Occurs at 12:13 AM on the East coast of the US, 9:13 PM on the US West coast, May 18, 2015. Mercury is stationary at the time I am posting this article and will go retrograde at 9:49 PM on the East coast and 6:49 PM on the Pacific coast of the US, about 19 hours after the New Moon.

As always, stay on your prime directive, after all this is a New Moon even with the review cycle it will present. Remember, we are preparing for another elemental cycle, if you set it up right it will carry you to the manifestation of your dreams.

Blessed Be,
S.L.2015

The Current Energies in March 2015

Written by Sherrie Locke on 8 Tzi, March 2015

How have you been faring in these current energies?

For me, it has been one thing after another, some seeming to pertain to me (*you know it’s all of it) but most seemingly totally related to others. Moms and close relationships have pretty much been key for all of us. Have you noticed yourself getting agitated when people you love don’t take care of themselves?

Personally, this has been a theme throughout my life. As I watch (and sometimes suggest) how things can be improved, suddenly the stress “flips” and funnels right back, making one learn the lesson (ad nauseam) of practice what you preach…or teach.

I’m pretty holistic (some of you who know me are laughing right now, since you know I am the allopathic antithesis point), being a person who only uses Western allopathic medicine for necessary surgical procedures or broken bones.

In this matter you have noticed how people have totally chosen one side of the equation or the other. I have seen recently that there is more attention to food and supplementation. Even allopathic doctors are chiming in on this more than ever.

On another note, we may all be a bit tired or even exhausted from the last three years, so get your rest now while you can. Know your limits but push them a bit everyday. Do set healthy boundaries.

Have you noticed how clearing things out makes room for the new? If so, I bet you are still looking at what else can be let go of.

The Current Lunar Phase and Major Upcoming Square

We are currently entering the portion of the lunar phase to “let go.” Let go of what-ifs and procrastination of all kinds, let go of addictions to people, places and things. Stay centered in your heart.

The next exact Pluto/Uranus square happens on Monday/Tuesday, March 16/17 depending on where you are on the globe. We are thoroughly feeling and sitting in the energy as I write this article. After the exact square, the energy will start to ease up somewhat and the tune will change after we enter this next eclipse cycle, which begins with this next New Super Moon with a Solar Eclipse and the Equinox! Wow, fasten your seat belts!

I will post an article on this event in the next day or so.

Peace and Love,

The First Full Moon of 2015

Written by Sherrie Locke on 5 Ik and 6 Akabal, January 2015.

full-moon

This is my first blog post of 2015. Happy New Year Everyone! My intention with this blog is to write content that is current and relevant to the changes we are all experiencing. Also adding content that is functional with information and exercises to help with this process. It is also my intention in 2015 to start my travel related blog on travel to interesting places and sacred sites and the energies of these different locations, particularly around the region in which I reside which is Guatemala and also Southern Mexico.

Welcome to the new Gregorian calendar year. We entered this year of 2015 on an Imox day on the calendar Maya, 4 Imox, which is interesting based on the fact the the Crocodile (Imox) is seen as the collective consciousness, the water, the deep hidden creatures of all water and thus the primordial Yin. Deep energy indeed. In the Northern hemisphere we are in the element of Earth. In the Southern hemisphere you are in the element of Fire. Soon will come the lunar new year or Chinese New Year, this coming round is the Year of the Sheep or Goat. 2015 is the year of the Wooden Sheep. The Sheep (Goat) is a Yin energy, a symbol of Peace, Harmonious co-existence and Tranquility. That is the primary and fundamental mood for this year.

Back to the upcoming Full Moon at 14 degrees Cancer 31 minutes (in Western astrology). A Capricorn/Cancer axis, this one should be interesting. It occurs at 11:53 PM East coast time, 8:53 PM on the West coast of the US and 10:53 PM here in Texas and also in Guatemala.

This is no ordinary Full Moon event. This full moon and it’s nodes form a grand cross. Sun in Capricorn, Moon in Cancer, South Node in Aries, North Node in Libra. On top of this very powerful Full Moon is Mars opposite Jupiter. It’s a challenge for me to decide which is more potent. I will tell you it will set off polarity. It is the birth of the new, which requires a separation from the original. It is a birthing process. There is a “pushing process” going on, like contractions. Bringing the new forward. Birthing of a new identity, a new future. Mars in Aquarius = BIRTH.

The Mars energy is detachment, so there is a push pull energy going on and the Jupiter energy can make it feel like “too much,” too, too, too much…
Jupiter in Leo says CREATE SOMETHING! It’s the child being kicked out of the womb, be it a job, a relationship or a new identity. It is separation from the norm.

There is the “idealistic” and the “need to live in the future” feeling, and escapism is rampant, the time for that is not now. Now is the time of decision, change, planning and preparation for the future. Does this relationship fit with what I am doing, does this career choice suit my future plans…? fill in the blank… for the FUTURE, which is coming NOW, THIS YEAR! So plan well, evaluate well, get a ‘feel’ for what the dynamics are and if they are a fit with your future.

What are you currently doing for your future?

Blessings for a progressive and prosperous 2015! Happy Full Moon!

The Upcoming New Moon and Change of Elements

Written by Sherrie Locke on 4 Qanil, December 2014.

Here we are at the last New Moon of 2014. This last New Moon of the year occurs during the Solstice. We are entering the element of Earth in the Northern hemisphere, so it is Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year. In the Southern hemisphere you are entering the element of Fire, the Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year. Apex points.

winter-solstice-1

When we approach the apex point or Solstices or any of the four sacred holidays, we are asked to review our progress in this last elemental energy. This one is a little bit different, since it is the last one of the year. We are asked to review the entire year and particularly the last nine-month period, from the beginning of this Zodiacal round. What have you discovered about yourself? How have you made adjustments to achieve your goals? Have you found your focus to be worthy of your time and energy? How have the relationships in your life supported what you are doing?

If you will be still and allow it to happen, the last couple of days of this cycle will bring you further information. Those of us in the Northern hemisphere we are coming to the end of the element of Water. What have you learned about your emotions? What have you seen in others during this cycle? Choose ye well what you spend your time and attention on, for this is the creation of your future. Were you happy? Were you in alignment with your intentions?

Have you made progress? You will see these results over the next three months. If you are happy with the results, then stay the course. If you are not happy with the results, then more change may be in order. Do not fear or be apprehensive, after all, you are the creator of your own reality. You have done all this for a purpose, the purpose of showing you the results of your thinking and the balance (or lack thereof) of your intent and emotions regarding your current goal.

If you have had a successful run during this last elemental journey, then stop and give thanks for all you have received in this cycle. The next one is sure to show you miracles and forward progress in your manifestations. Be diligent!

Technical Information about the Winter Solstice

The exact time of the Solstice is the moment when the Sun enters Capricorn (in Western Astrology), thus the New Moon in Capricorn, which occurs at 6:03 PM on the East Coast of the US, 3:03 PM on the West Coast, December 21, 2014. We will be celebrating here in Texas and in Guatemala at 5:03 PM. Traditionally the feasts are held after the change of elements. Winter Solstice is traditionally called Yule. Happy Yule Tide everyone! The season officially begins!

Blessings!

The Upcoming Full Moon of December 2014

Written by Sherrie Locke on 2 Aj, December 2014.

The December Full Moon is historically a time to reflect and review the year that is completing. It is the last Full Moon before the change of elements with the Solstice on December 21 (December 22 for some of you). I will post an article for that event in the next week or so.

10836365_952584908102575_1724298693_n

Effects of the Full Moon
Remember, the Full Moon breaks impasse, so if you are in any kind of stalemate or a period of indecision, use this Full Moon energy to clear the blockage and get on with things. I have noticed recently, that if people have been “on the fence” about certain things, be it a relationship or career matter, the Universe has served up a change for them.

That is to say that rather than changing that job at an unhealthy work place, a letter of termination was the result, thus time to make a change whether you think you are ready or not. If a relationship has been going nowhere or is not viable, it’s likely that something has happened to bring it to an end, sometimes rather dramatically, be it a business association or a personal relationship. Better to be the one in charge of your life than others dictating that change.

The last Full Moon in any element has a certain energy attached to it. We have three Full Moons in each elemental round (occasionally there is a small variance,). For us in the Northern hemisphere we are ending the element of Water, which rules our emotions, so that will be the theme at this time. For those of you in the Southern hemisphere you are ending the element of Air, which has brought about a change in your thinking or intentions, so pay attention to what comes up and how you have changed or need to make further changes, since we want (ideally) to move into the next element with as little baggage as possible, thus we will have further progress during this next element.

It’s ok if you do not yet know exactly what you want or need to do at this time. Reflect on what you have cleared out and how much room you have made for your new path to emerge.

Happy Full Moon Everyone!

Full Moon November 6, 2014

Written by Sherrie Locke on 11 Akabal and 12 Net, November 2014

This full moon occurs in the sign of Taurus (in Western astrology). It is the first full moon after the eclipse cycle and solar eclipse (on this last new moon) on October 23/24, 2014. This full moon occurs at 14 degrees Taurus 26 minutes, 5:23 PM on the East Coast, 2:23PM on the West Coast or 4:23 PM here in Guatemala.

full-moonX

How has your life shifted in the last two weeks? What has changed? What is the center of your attention? Is there a new component? A new focus? A new interest or person? Now that you have a good idea what that is, now is the time to let go of anything that does not serve the new you and certainly time to let go of any self limitation and fear based clinging to old ideas, concepts or programming.

Remember, full moons break impasses. What do you want to break free of and move forward into? This may still take some time, but at least you have a better picture of what you DO want and I am most certain a good idea of what is holding you back. So use this energy to break free, with clear intent for your future. Rather than thinking of all the ways things could not work, be open to how things CAN go right and you truly can (and will) manifest your heart’s desire, if you are diligent and true to yourself for the next few weeks and months.

While the moon visits Taurus, she asks us to focus on what is of true value and importance and release what is not. This is the theme of the Taurus full moon Nov 06/07. Building the new, cleansing. Sun in Scorpio inconjunct Uranus in Aries also occurs on full moon day, and this inconjunct just repeats the theme of the last two days. Identify which limitations and restrictions you want to release so you can break through to the new. Use the energy of the Taurus full moon to let go (read my post on letting go). Letting go can be easy, and remember, you are fully supported by the Universe. The only person that stands in your way is you. So just do it, you will surprised at the results.

Let go and let the Universe do its job to bring you your heart’s desire.

Powerful Transformational Eclipse Coming October 23, 2014

Written by Sherrie Locke on 1 Ajpu and 8 Kej, October 2014.

This week will be intense courtesy of the overlapping energies, with a solar eclipse on top.

Blog photo-2

The past weekend was grounding and a bit less intense than the previous weeks since the Equinox. Rather like the calm before the next eclipse. The obvious theme…how can you bring more harmony into your life?

Lots of things are moving. The Pluto/Uranus square is still intensely active, internal battles are being fought, even though we may not know yet “why” or in what context all this will all play out. Do not assume you know how all this will manifest just yet. Life changing events are happening.

The overall theme with the 2-1/2 year transit (know your relationships and your own motivations) is coming into the last six-month run, and we will have a much clearer view by late April to early May of 2015, so be patient and observe. What do you understand about yourself that was hidden from your view two years ago? How have your relationships shifted? Really exciting relationship stuff coming both in your personal life and in business. *Positive Mojo.

Solar eclipses always occur on the new moon. This coming lunar phase kicks off the Scorpionic energies, so there will be further plumbing of the depths as three planets move into Scorpio on the day of the partial solar eclipse. The eclipse occurs at zero degrees Scorpio (in Western astrology) 15 minutes, which translates to 5:57 PM for the East coast of the US, 2:57 PM Pacific time, and at 4:57PM for us here in Guatemala. Visible here and many other parts of North America. Here’s a link…

Solar Eclipse October 2014

Be sure to brush up on how to view a solar eclipse (this one is a partial). I have welding goggles, which are perfect. You can look up the water technique on the Internet. Don’t try to look at it directly (sometimes this surprises me that I need to remind people of this).

Remember, The lunar eclipse changes us INternally. It has been all about inner shifting and transformation. Look back at the last two weeks or back to the last Equinox. What is shifting? What has shifted? Read my previous 70 posts on related subjects.

Now for the coup de grâce, a super powerful partial solar eclipse.

Remember, The solar eclipse changes the EXternal and the way we are perceived in the world. Time to out your new found self to the world! Hope that works out well for all of us.

At the time I am posting this article we are in the balsamic phase of the moon, still letting go of what no longer serves us. Let it GO! Don’t worry! If you let go of something that is meant to be, it will clear the current existing energy pattern and the reconnection will be cleaner and stronger. So if you have anything pending, finish it once and for all so you can get with the new energies. Let me know if you would like me to write an article on this subject.

Also remember, in the Northern Hemisphere we are in the overall element of WATER (Air for those of you down south of the equator), which will shift to EARTH element on the Solstice in December (FIRE for those of you in the southern regions). This is relevant to the current eclipse cycle.

Recap of the Current Cycle

On September 22/23, 2014 (read my Mabon article), we changed elements with the Equinox. A day later on the 24th of September we had a very powerful new moon. Mercury went retrograde on October 4th, followed by a powerful Total Lunar Eclipse on October 8th. Enter the “wormhole” or what we like to call the “sideways elevator.” This is where we are now. Thursday is the partial solar eclipse, and the sun enters Scorpio (in Western astrology) at zero degrees Scorpio 15 minutes, which will make the next two weeks or so interesting and guaranteed to be life changing. Choose ye well!

Zip, Boom, Bang! Transformation Station!

Breathe deeply and open your heart, be fearless and present.

Blessings!

Note to my readers: I have been traveling and also spending focused time on the current energies and transformation. I will get back to my regular Monday and Thursday posts soon.

Thanks!

Here Comes the Eclipse Cycle

Written by Sherrie Locke on 8 Jaguar, October 2014.

We have already entered the last Mercury Retrograde cycle of 2014 and are gearing up for the second half of the annual eclipse cycle. The Full Moon in Aries (in Western astrology) kicks it off with a Total Lunar Eclipse on October 8th for most of the globe.

Blood moon eclipse

Just before this eclipse cycle, Mercury, the planet of communications and connections, went retro last Saturday on October 4. This year the eclipse cycle may seem a bit more intense due to the planetary overlying energies and the squeeze to let go of what no longer serves us, to let go of what is not us.

Many years ago, one of my original teachers said, “Eclipses are like light a switch: on, off, on, off. If you track them (for years) you will see how this plays out in your life.” Eclipses change us. The lunar eclipse changes the way we feel internally, the solar eclipses change the way the world sees us. So the first eclipse is all about the IN-ternal, the second (solar eclipse) in this cycle rearranges things EX-ternally and changes people’s perceptions of us.

Sometimes there are variances, like three eclipses in a row (over 6 weeks). This eclipse cycle is not like that, but it doesn’t make it any less intense. It’s rather a blessing that Mercury will retro back into Libra (in Western astrology) for the event, which will make it a bit easier than the eclipse cycle occurring during Mercury retro in Scorpio! Whew. There will, however, be ‘tips’ to and fro as the scales of Libra attempt to balance. This will manifest in the communication/expression parts of our lives. Better to say nothing than to come off as a dictator. Watch your words.

It really is a time to sit in your core. I have been feeling this for a bit. Meditation is key (read my previous post). Meditation makes the intense energy much easier to deal with.

If you have, or are dealing with a health issue, certain symptoms may come up from last December/January. This can be a turning point, so make it a good one. Also, sometimes things break, get broken (beyond repair) or lost (permanently) during cycles like these. So if any of that is happening to you, or does happen during this cycle, just remind yourself, it’s time for something new, an upgrade perhaps.

We had two T-squares today (Monday, October 6) to deal with as we head into a highly pressurized Lunar Eclipse on Wednesday which will be visible in most of North and South America and Asia. You may feel squeezed during these next few days. Remain calm, it’s your choice ‘how’ you will deal with it. Stay out of criticism all the way around, meaning no criticizing yourself or others.

This eclipse is a ‘once in a lifetime’ event (with all these planetary ‘condiments’) we have had nothing like this for 84 years and it won’t repeat for us again in this lifetime.

Make it a good one, transformation is good! As we say here, learn to surf.

Blessings and hang in there!

The Coming Equinox and Change of Elements

Written by Sherrie Locke on 2 Tzi’kin, September 2014.

As I sit here contemplating the upcoming change of element and entry into the Sun sign Libra in Western astrology, I can’t help but look at all the changes and, in many cases, discomfort the culmination of this cycle has brought forth. Many longstanding relationships have ended. The ones that have survived are being radially revamped. Family dynamics abound, be it in the same house, on another continent or in our heads.

awesome image

This is processing folks, in all its glory. And as I have been continually stating, let go of what no longer serves you. Sometimes the things we need to let go of the most are the hardest to stop, like worrying.

The energies of this time are amplified by the Pluto station. This will all start to shift in the next week or so as the great change maker Pluto starts to move forward again, however so slowly…it is still forward progress.

The Week of the Fall Equinox

So here’s the rundown for the upcoming week…

From the exact time of the equinox change of elements, we will have approximately 26 hours to adjust to the new energy (during which time Pluto does its forward thing) before the New Moon occurs at 1 degree Libra 8 minutes. This equates to 10:29 PM EST, 7:29 PM PST, or 8:29 PM for us here in Guatemala. Remember, the equinox is a four-minute event, so try to sit still in meditation for the entry of the new element. I usually have a feast after the equinox, so for me the feast will be on Tuesday. On the heels of the elemental shift that occurs on a late fourth quarter lunar phase, we will experience Pluto going direct. Pluto goes direct on Monday at 8:36 PM EST, right before the Equinox event, but we won’t feel it immediately since Pluto moves so S L O W L Y. But we will certainly feel it over the following few days.

Next Tuesday night (September 23): Wednesday morning for some people. At 2:14 AM EST the Moon moves into Libra (in Western astrology) and grants us a NEW MOON. The time of the New Moon on the West Coast is 11:14 PM, just after midnight for us here in Guatemala. Fasten your seat belts for this one. So when we awaken on Wednesday, we will be in store for some markedly different energies wherever you are on the globe.

The End of the Elemental Cycle

When we reach the end of an elemental cycle and it occurs on a fourth quarter lunar phase, we have what might be considered a double “letting go cycle.” What came up to be processed and let go from this last lunar phase? Also, what was the theme of this last elemental cycle (three months) in your life?

It doesn’t do any good to put up walls or draw another line in the sand. This energy is to dispel that line and EXPAND. This can be a good time of bringing a chapter to a close, to put a lingering health issue to rest, to stop for a bit and take a deep breath. It is a good time to make space for something new, be it getting rid of old unused things, getting out of a challenging relationship, or separating from a difficult business partner.

When we really do let go, not just a show of effort but really let go and make space, that space can be filled very quickly with what we DO want. We must stop focusing on the bitter lemon and what we do not want. This can be tricky, since there’s been a lot of that showing up to get us to recognize “what” needs to shift. I feel that most of us are clear on that point by now.

Keep working on your health and wellbeing. Above all — this is important: whether you are seeing current results or not, don’t give up on you! If you are really doing this, you will have little time to micromanage the events of your life and certainly will have no time to attempt the micromanagement of others’ lives. If you want to do something for someone, try being nice or offering assistance of some kind. Sometimes it might be as simple as taking out the trash. Do what you need to do and step back and look at the bigger picture. Is your trajectory aimed at where you want to go? This question is super-important at this juncture.

What do you want for yourself and how does that affect others, the world? If it’s good for you, for everyone concerned and everything on the planet, then you are on the right track. You gotta start somewhere, so begin with you.

This next New Moon is very powerful, even though it does not culminate with a Super Moon as the last three lunar phases have. So you see, in a way, we have had a triple ramp up in this last elemental cycle, and the forward progress we are afforded at this coming new moon is exceptional. Make the best of it!

Stay tuned in, turned on and passionate about your goals. The time to get going is at hand.
