7-20-2013 Mercury moved direct and we’re getting ready for the Full Moon in Aquarius (Otter) and Sun moving into Leo (Sturgeon)

7-20-2013Happy Birthday Leos! Sturgeon People have clever wit and love a good “show”. This month propels us into the Grand Illusion of the story tellers … action & drama! Sturgeon is just as majestic as LEO the Lion, standing out in the crowd! We get inspired by their willingness to be leaders and their ability to entertain us in any circumstance. The Sturgeon, King of the Fish, rules wherever they live and sports a tough armor to protect the valuable seeds within. Sturgeon people have depth, strength, memory and long life.

leo-smShawnodese, Spirit Keeper of the South, the Coyote, is the trickster, playing practical jokes, making sure we are not taking things too personally.

Thunderbird Clan (Fire Signs) represents the ego and the “creative fire within” which manifests goals.

Their plant is Raspberry. Tea of the leaves relieves nausea and flu symptoms and helps gallstones.

Garnet is their Stone. It strengthens, energizes, enhances self-esteem and holds power.

Challenge: Using power to help others, not to impress them; expressing confidence without arrogance.

Gift: Their inner light attracts positive experiences and people who appreciate drama and greatness.

otter-mamaThe light of this Full Moon (11:15 AM PDT) in AQUARIUS (Otter) reminds us of the importance of family and ALL OUR RELATIONS in Oneness …  UNITY CONSCIOUSNESS in a Grand way!” AQUARIUS is concerned with humanitarian issues, a bit rebellious wanting  CHANGE for the better! Change that will affect everyone on our Mother Earth … the web of life where we are ALL connected.  The energy of Aquarius creates progressive “thinkers” for the future, community-minded and socially responsible for future generations, the LIGHT of this Moon shines in all areas and things that are hidden may be revealed now. Unexpected events these next 2 weeks may bring our human family to a more connected realization. So Be It!

Saturday 7-20-13 Mercury 13 degrees in Cancer turns direct (11:22 AM PDT) and to many, things may seem a little “off” while we’re getting our balance back, adjusting to our  recalibration of new energies! The Moon will be in Cancer’s opposite sign, Capricorn and this may be a “volatile” weekend between partners! Pluto will be conjunct (shining as ONE) around the same time (Sunday 3:13 AM PDT), WE  WILL FEEL IT! We may be experiencing a “wobble” that is transforming with life changing revelations and we’re finally ready to act on them! “The TRUTH shall set you FREE” is here NOW, true freedom to be authentic and on purpose, listening to our inner truth and Guidance with an open heart. To say what we mean and mean what we say … ahh wouldn’t that be nice!?

This dance that is a Grand Trine with Neptune in Pisces & Saturn in Scorpio ( water signs) and Mars and Jupiter still in Cancer … are ALL WATER signs! This represents emotions, feelings, illusions, going with the flow, sometimes “paddling upstream” and/or the Full Moon Light for  clarity, focus, and taking things to a higher level of awareness … Point of View ( POV)! It’s all about choice and HOW we choose to perceive what is going on. One of the challenges for the unevolved sign Cancer is taking things way too personal, identifying with a “victim” mentality/role, needing to be needed. The gift of the evolved Cancer is to transform that feeling into a positive attitude, knowing that it is ALL happening “FOR you” and not “TO you”! The gift is offering love and support without having to give more than you are comfortable in giving … healthy boundaries! It shifts the perception to the higher octaves of evolved Cancer: to one of a loving, nurturing, family-minded, guardian of innocence and being in joyful gratitude. I like the saying that “I AM just too BLESSED to be stressed!” Seems to get me out of those deep dark places and back to the Light of Great Spirit … back on track with purpose!

The love of the MOTHER energy is calling out … listen … what do you hear?

July 4, 1776 … 2013

June 28, 2013 I had a radio interview with Caroline Wise King, she asked my opinion of the astrological outlook for the USA today, economy and teachings. I never have looked at the chart before and was so amazed at how similar today’s chart for the US is compared to what was happening in 1776!

Here’s the information and chart that came up during my research.

1st the Bald Eagle as our Nation’s Totem. This represents spectacular FREEDOM; freedom from fear, doubt, corruption and the freedom to BE who we really are! Eagle is the most respected and powerful animal totem because of their ability to “SEE” into the Sun as they fly towards it unaffected by it’s brilliance. Legend has it, that Great Spirit told Eagle many things that Eagle then reported back to the Chiefs, so they could share with the Tribe what was going on with these “visions”. Great power comes with Eagle Medicine, the Elders had much respect for the white man bringing in this symbol, much hope for the future and future generations was expected.

*FYI:The essence of the Bald Eagle is strength and courage. In ancient Sumer, Rome, and other warrior cultures, the eagle was the imperial symbol of command and control, and represented the ability to soar above all enemies. It’s keen vision, powerful talons, and majestic appearance are further indications of moral superiority, of a divine or sacred mission. The eagle flies higher than any other bird, and thereby symbolizes the highest spiritual values.”

    July 4, 1776 USA Chart


“Over the years astrologers have come up with, and continue to come up with, various times for the birth of the American nation. (Some think it’s Gemini or Virgo Rising). In The Astrology of America’s Destiny, Dane Rudhyar provides ample evidence from the historical record, including accounts by signers of the Declaration of Independence, that the correct birth time of the United States is the signing of the Declaration of Independence, shortly after 5:00 PM, 4 July 1776, in Philadelphia. Rudhyar rectifies the time of the signing to 5:13:55 PM, providing an Ascendant of 13°10′ Sagittarius.”


Editor’s Note: The frontispiece appearing in the original edition of The Astrology of America’s Destiny (New York: Random House, 1974) is an illustration from the noted 18th century English astrologer, Dr. Sibley. The horoscope being presented to Washington shows an old-fashioned square chart graphic. It is cast for 4 July 1776, 10:10 PM, London Time. It shows a local Ascendant for Philadephia of 13°12′ Sagittarius.”

(inner circle US natal chart)

July 4, 1776 -transitchart 7-4-2013July 4, 1776 -transit-planets- 7-4-2013

Note from me: After doing some research about the TIME the US chart was, which affects the Rising sign, I tend to agree with Dane Rudhyar’s interpretation of Sagittarius Rising. The basic fact is that  4 planets are still very close in the same degree and signs as on July 4, 1776 and that’s where the “rectification” (using knowledge & the intuitive process to analyze the energies of that sign) of the Rising sign occurs. It just makes sense to me, that Sagittarius is the collective energy of this Nation.

To ADD Medicine Wheel Astrology is to look at the Rising sign, to mark the 4 directions and then interpret their TOTEMS in the chart. I have shared some of this in the interview with Caroline Wise King, please LISTEN in the archives for the show.

In the books “Life & Teaching of the Masters of the Far East” by Baird Spaulding (DeVorss & Co)  it was said that AMERICA is an anagram for the “I AM RACE” … we have the responsibility and honor to share with the rest of the world what the POTENTIAL is of people living in harmony, helping each be the best we can be and sharing that with the rest of the world! A new world of Enlightenment, where people from every country are welcome. We are ALL IMMIGRANTS (non native), many welcomed and “adopted”  by the Native Americans! Many teachings here since 1776 and we continue to have the same dreams and issues but a greater viewing audience now!

So, here were are, Jupiter in the sign of the FLICKER (Cancer) with its unconditional LOVE wanting to feel secure with home and family. Mars in Gemini (Deer) communicating on a GLOBAL basis , squaring (challenging) Neptune (Spirituality, religions and foreign countries 9th HOUSE) with it’s POWER and aggressive nature. Jupiter stays in Cancer for 1 year (won’t be back for 12 years) and it represents HOME, FAMILY, SECURITY, WATER, FEELINGS and EMOTIONS. Mercury is in Cancer, retrograde (apparently going backwards) and NOW is the time to speak up for what we want and don’t want! MOTHERS are speaking out about what is no longer acceptable; no more killing of children and the senseless wars … Earth Mother is also speaking up and getting our attention!

Thank you for your time and what a wonderful way to renew our enthusiasm for being AMERICAN! We are so blessed and may the gratitude of our GROUP DREAM continue with peace, love and justice for all!

Blessings.  Star Savoy


Here’s some interesting links:


“They cannot logically or astrologically deal with the United States as an operative nation, as a working social organism having, like all organisms, a definite structure. If they refer to anything, it can only be to the fact that, with the Declaration of Independence, the people of the Colonies proclaimed to the world — the international environment — that they had achieved the consciousness of unity, a definite individuality.
Note well the words “proclaimed to the world“; for just as a child is really “born” only when he relates himself to the world by breathing the air sensitive to myriad cosmic influences — and he announces this fact by a vocal utterance — so the “American people” were “born” when they declared openly to the other nations their will to act as one people and to exert that will.”

Sagittarius Rising “I believe the Ascendant to be the clothing of the soul. It is the Soul’s entry into the world, and as such, the Ascendant of the chart of a country must reflect the clothing of the collective soul of a nation.

Ben Franklin  (http://www.magisociety.com/ben_franklin_astrology.htm)

When Benjamin Franklin picked a date for America’s Founding Fathers to sign the Declaration of Independence, he made sure the day was a fabulous astrological day.  He was not going to settle for a day when only two planets were going to form a planetary eclipse.  He chose July 4, 1776, because on that day, FIVE planets came together in the sky to form a FIVE PLANET PLANETARY ECLIPSE.


[Magi StarScope of July 4, 1776, above is a view of the actual sky and shows multiple Planetary Eclipses – the white dots are stars of magnitude stronger than 3.2.  The horizontal green line represents the ecliptic and the two horizontal blue lines represent 23.44 degrees north and south declination's, which are the positions of the Sun on the two solstices.]

From the time Ben could first write, he was drawing maps of the sky when the planets and stars were visible and he quickly realized that when Jupiter (the brightest planet in the sky) and the Sun made a Planetary Eclipse, the planets were giving us folks on Earth a sign that something remarkably good was happening.  This is called a Sun-Jupiter Planetary Eclipse.

There was a Sun-Jupiter Planetary Eclipse when America’s Founders signed the Declaration of Independence (July 4, 1776), and also when the US Constitution became effective (June 21, 1788) on the day New Hampshire became the ninth state to ratify the US Constitution.

There are no coincidences in life.


Franklin’s organizational mind is shown by his Capricorn Sun, and the decisive effect he had on the United States as a national power is reflected in his Sun conjunct the U.S. natal Pluto, both at 27° Capricorn. Franklin wanted the national symbol to be the Wild Turkey. Although the Wild Turkey and the domesticated farm turkey are two completely different animals, today we refer to anything that looks clumsy or is otherwise of low quality as a “turkey.” So fortunately in this case Franklin was over-ruled when in 1782 the new Congress selected the Bald Eagle to be the national emblem. Perhaps Franklin saw in the Wild Turkey the qualities of fierce independence, and when strutting about in its mating ritual, a picture of pride, confidence, and regal beauty. Perhaps he was reminded of the federated colonies when he saw the splayed tail feathers, which when fanned out in its iridescent colors presented an image of collective purpose and harmony.

Franklin played a leading role in early American history as an inventor, diplomat, and political scientist. As an elder statesman, he lent moral authority to Thomas Jefferson’s words in the Declaration of Independence. Franklin proposed the innovative government framework of a federation, which he learned about by observing a group of cooperative Indian nations. The States would be equal partners in the federal government, with no individual state holding supreme power.

FYI: Did you know?   John Adams believed that July 2nd was the best date  to celebrate the birth of our Nation and Thomas Jefferson wanted July 4th. They disagreed and felt so strongly that they didn’t speak to each other for years … both died on July 4th, 1826, which was the 50th anniversary of the Declaration Of Independence.


5/9/2013 New Moon Eclipse in Taurus 5:28 PM PDT

Welcome to the big “Council meeting” with Sun, Moon, Mercury, Mars … all in Taurus (Beaver) and Venus entering the sign of Gemini (Deer) today! Beaver Medicine is all about work, family, values, integrity, persistence and determination. Beaver is also the practical Earth (Turtle Clan) sign, grounding excessive energies into expression … art and creativity which are activated! Family is priority and the team all works together to make their home safe, secure and prosperous!

beaver-familyTaurus (Beaver)

New Moon’s are about new beginnings, planting the “garden” in our imagination, setting our intentions for what we want to create with our “dreams” … what is our true life’s purpose and how to reach that goal! Eclipses can show us where those shadows are, what is “buried” that may come out and reveal those “sticky” areas that need healing. This awareness happens  so we can evolve these obstacles and move forward to fulfillment. Time to cleanse our sacred space, ready for the NEW visions to emerge and guide us to our fulfillment and purpose … So Be It!!

BTW where do you have this energy in your birth chart wheel? What HOUSE is being activated? This is a powerful “clue” to understanding this and how it relates to your personal growth.

Smudging with sage, cedar or your choice!
Smudging with sage, cedar or your choice!

Venus moved into the sign if Gemini (Deer) and is aligning with Jupiter (also in Gemini) for powerful energy of communication. Deer People are gentle, sweet and peace loving. This is a time of being very aware of our WORDS … they hold great power, especially when negative words are aimed at others. Our bodies are water and we hold this energy in our emotional bodies … we need to speak to others how we want to be spoken to! We ask for Deer Medicine to soften our words with kindness and awareness. After the 15th ( the rest of the month) the opportunity to apply this teaching will be the strongest. “Walking the TALK” now, this is the test … and GRATITUDE is still one of the best ways to resolve any misunderstandings. One way I’ve been applying this is by “owning” my behavior and consciously saying: “I AM so thankful for this awareness, THANK YOU for “mirroring” my behavior, I AM ready to release these old patterns of disrespect, rudeness and mean words”. And now remember the sweetness of Deer … they have a lovely disposition and very sensitive hearing!


With love and blessings, we wish for you a very AWARE and happy New Moon! Hope you’ve read the Sun Bear & Wabun books, they will continue to take you on a wonderful journey …

4-10-2013 New Moon 20 Aries (Red Hawk) at 2:35 AM PDT


As seeds burst through the earth, pushing towards the light to grow, that is the season we are in. Personalities may clash, words spoken without thought, unawareness of “others” and their needs. Aries pushes through with great courage and conviction. Now is the time to have it tempered with compassion and wisdom … to be MINDFUL of our actions. When we align with Great Spirit, God/Goddess/ALL THAT IS, we receive help on all levels. Gratitude is the key to success in all relationships. Drop the ones that no longer serve, strengthen the connections with your Spirit family and proceed to manifest the DREAMS you were born for!

Blessings Dear Ones … Love From The Heart Tribe *Star*

I also want to SHARE this excellent article by Henry Seltzer as well. It’s important to see different perspectives. Enjoy!

The New Moon in late Aries, taking place early on Wednesday morning, is a special one. It is accompanied by a triple conjunction of Mars, Venus and the new planet, Eris, making a total of six planets in Aries counting Sun and Moon, since Uranus also resides at the 10th degree of Aries in forming square with Pluto. The new dwarf planet, Eris, is a feminine warrior energy, and so is quite a fitting accompaniment for Mars and Venus in conjunction only a few degrees away. We therefore have a distinct focus on relationship now, and a coming together of masculine and feminine elements in pursuit of better connections, both romantic and non-romantic, between us all. Justly is it said that we need each other in order that we begin, as a culture, to truly shine.With a focus on relationship at the center of this New Moon, the entire lunar cycle that begins with this configuration is colored by it, so that the remainder of April and into May could be termed a “relationship month.” We might want to ask ourselves where we could do more to connect over to the other side of our own particular gender; where as masculine players we might try to adopt a softer approach, and where, as softer more feminine beings of either physical gender, we might — in connection with the masculine — employ more assertive techniques and state our actual needs. In this way we could find ourselves better able to connect with friends, and with partners, and with perhaps neglected parts of ourselves.

It was the amazing psychologist and philosopher C. G. Jung who first formulated that all persons of a typical gender, such as the masculine, contained within themselves an opposite gender part that was desperately craving to be recognized and accepted as a valid piece of the intriguing puzzle of one’s deeper nature. In a man, he termed this the Anima, or feminine soul within, and in a woman, the Animus. These disinherited parts are very commonly projected onto a partner, and the astrology of an individual chart gives insight as to their hidden qualities, and the likely characteristics of the person to whom that individual would be attracted. But it is better yet when these choices are more conscious, and when an integration can take place between these various parts.

We get an interesting picture of this when we examine the Sabian symbols for the Sun and Moon, in contrast with the symbols for Venus and Mars. For the New Moon, “A pugilist entering the ring” — a very masculine image — while for the others “A woman in pastel colors carrying a valuable load” and “An open window, a net curtain, blowing into a cornucopia,” which Marc Edmond Jones refers to as “joyful realization” and “an irrepressible genius for capturing the richer rewards of life.” Together these could signify the enhanced possibilities of an integration between the masculine and feminine sides of our natures.

With Mercury still in Pisces, and in aspect to both Mars and Venus at the time of this New Moon configuration, it is thus an excellent time to continue observing all that we do with regard to our relationship partners. We might be able to catch ourselves in the act of habitual patterns that have outlived their usefulness, or perhaps give each other a break at a moment when we had been about to deny one.

3-11-2013 New Moon 21 Pisces 12:51 PM PDT

new-moon-piscesIn traditional Western Astrology Pisces is represented by two fish swimming in opposite directions and not seeing each other. As a Water sign, emotions can run high and they can get lost in a fantasy “Neptunian”  world if not careful. This is WHY “mirrors” are so important, as we “mirror” for each other the TRUTH we “see”. Oppositions also help us to gain clarity, Pisces opposite sign is Virgo and we’re ALL still analyzing from this last Full Moon. Through Virgo we receive the gift of discernment and details that may otherwise be over looked. The polarities of these two energies can open us up Spiritually through the Masters … are you listening to your inner Guidance? It’s very strong and vibrant now, asking us to “tune-in”, the time is now.

In MWA this is the Big Winds Moon, it blows big medicine, as most people say they feel it BIG time! We’re coming out of Winter, hibernation, dreams and waking up to the new possibilities. The weather is just another indicator that Earth Mother is speaking and of the changes going on.  There is a lot of confusion as to what to do and many are in shock, much like deer in the headlights. Big questions like; what are our priorities? Work long hours to pay for a house where no one lives because they’re too busy working to pay for it? What is REAL and what is illusion? What do we keep or what do we “let go” of? This is why Cougar reminds us to be patient and watch the signs, we’ll know when to act and when to just lay low … if we’re “tuned-in”! LISTEN to the council of Masters that are just waiting for us to acknowledge that we truly are Spiritual Beings having this Earth walk experience. AHO!


So, New Moon … first I light my candle (I like 7-day novena candles in glass jar) and then I smudge myself first with white sage (my preference), then my offering to the 7 directions. BTW: “Dancing With The Wheel” Sun Bear & Wabun has some beautiful ceremonies that go into great sacred detail and also allow us to   to have a better understanding in our world with ALL OUR RELATIONS.


After the cleansing ceremony I take the time to review the last couple of weeks after this Full Moon Virgo and what I’ve gained in wisdom and understanding.  This is when I write my wish list and DREAM what I want to create next. I truly believe we are the Dreamers of our own reality and this is part of the process. Personally, I went deep into the void, deep into the teaching, deep into Ancient lifetimes of remembering what I forgot. This energy was in my 8th House of death/rebirth, grieving, the magical mysteries and letting go of what no longer serves (Virgo) … I’m doing just that, facing my issues and releasing them to Great Spirit with LOVE. I have battle scars on my face from the pain and depth of tears … NOW, I’m coming out of the darkness and into the Light with renewed hope for the future and the potential therein. May you FEEL that strength to do the same and welcome this New Moon with optimism and courage. New Moon, New Day, New time … create something NEW!

Love & Blessings Dear Ones

Oh BTW Monday 3-11-2013 Mars moves into Aries putting a little extra “kick” in our get-along! Best to remember that this can be a bit of a selfish energy when unevolved … “Centering the self rather than being self-centered” is the message here!  LISTEN & SILENT have the same letters – it’s a good idea to think before speaking, if possible!


Planets in transit Feb. 2013

Our Solar System

Our Solar System

1-30-13 ~ Jupiter represents expansion, good fortune and opportunities. It is the largest planet in our solar system and also offers us “protection” from outside forces. It  moves direct 1-31-2013 and since it’s in Gemini (Air sign) there will be more communication, contracts, writing and networking going on! Retrogrades are excellent for “going back” and getting something that was missed, perhaps it’s timing, rewriting documents/books/articles that needed editing or people we needed to “re-connect” with and heal any misunderstandings.

Love you!!

Love you!!

Gemini’s (or whatever “HOUSE” in your natal chart you have in Gemini)  need to take advantage of this opportunity, perhaps moving, relocating, publishing, new career possibilities and “speaking up” for what you want. Remember that Gemini are Deer People and they maintain a sweetness about them that is irresistible when they turn on the charm! Jupiter stays 1 year in each sign, (it won’t be back for 12 years) and moves into the sign of Cancer on 6-25-2013. Cancer signs get ready for this transiting Jupiter return next!

2-1-2013 Venus moves into the sign of Aquarius (Air sign) until the 25th (it then moves into Pisces). During this transit there’s usually a need for FREEDOM to BE unique and share “one of a kind” energies.  Music, unusual creative projects and  artwork are the focus. Otter are playful and love family gatherings which is a good way to catch up with everyone!

a shifting of perspectives; Venus wants her freedom and is ready to speak up for it and Mars is ideally showing compassion and allowing this sensitivity to deepen all relationships. Excellent time for healing now; for Chiron (the wounded healer) is in Pisces, activating a Spiritual conjunction with Neptune in Pisces. This  involves a Master teaching to oppositions of male/female energy (Capricorn/Cancer),  the “I AM” Aries/Libra, the resolution of judgement & balance … unity of opposites, which is ONENESS.

Sun in Aquarius (until 2-18-2013) also shines its light, which enhances whatever projects it’s involved with. Perhaps there’s more creativity in advertising a new business, inventing new ways to promote what’s been on the “back burner” for some time or expressing your gifts in a new way. Bringing or joining people together for a “pow wow” would be a good idea,  sharing lots of love and support!

2-9-2013 New Moon in Aquarius also adds an emotional longing to fulfill our DREAMS now and this power day is celebrated by the Chinese New Year, of the Snake.

Chinese New Year 2013
Year of the Snake

We’ve talked about how powerful this is (previous posts) because of the planet Saturn being in the sign of Scorpio (Snake medicine) until  9-17-2015 and how this is representing a transformational “shedding of the skin” … getting rid of anything that no longer serves and this is happening globally! It’s just the same for everyone; rich or poor, sick or healthy … we are letting go and allowing that which is for our Highest good to manifest. The “KEY” is different for each;  unique teachings  and  individual “karma” to play out. So, in my humble opinion the sooner we get out of judgement, of self and others, the sooner we can get on to what our true purpose and responsibility to Earth Mother is! I love this Uranus (sudden & unexpected happenings) in Aries (Red Hawk) energy, there’s never a dull moment and it’s good to use those instincts to move quickly if necessary.  It continues to nudge us up side the head when we’re not listening, so that we can listen to what the intuition is saying! We’re honing our awareness by testing our reactions, becoming more aware of what we’re “saying” and owning it. Those with Aries  Sun/Moon may feel it more intensely, best to “circle” around and observe before committing to any projects first.  This is a powerful teaching of “centering the self rather than being self centered”. What “HOUSE” contains Aries in your natal chart? There’s a clue for evolving this energy and choosing other options.

Mercury (communicator) in Pisces (Cougar) turns retrograde 2-23-13 until 3-17-13. This is a time to “go back” and review past dreams, business concepts, contracts and intentions. Priorities and integrity are challenges and gifts now, we must be observant of our motives and justifications. Add this to the New Moon, a time of new beginnings, moving forward with our visions and claiming what we want and it’s a truly magical adventure with us as the DREAMER …

Full Moon Virgo 2-25-13 opposite Sun in Pisces allows us the “light” to see how far we’ve evolved with our relationships, compassion, critical nature, over thinking things and so many more self awareness issues. Ask “How does this serve?” … to argue, being right rather than kind, or being quiet and stuffing what you want to say or how does it serve to continue any behavior where’s there’s a need for approval from anyone! How does it serve? Letting go now …

Sweet Dreams and thank you for this opportunity to SHARE. Love & Blessings xoxoxo*

11/21/2013 Sun enters Sagittarius (Elk), Venus joins Saturn and Mercury already in Scorpio (Snake)

SAGITTARIUS (11/22 – 12/21)  Spirit Keeper: Mudjekeewis/Grizzly Bear  •Power Direction: West  •Element: FireClan: Thunderbird  •Animal Guide: Elk  •Plant: Black Spruce  Stone: Obsidian  •Moon: Long Snows  Motto: ”I Perceive”

Thank you for joining us to speak of this new energy coming in NOW as we hear the bellowing of the mighty Elk in the distance. Before we can fully engage  with this, we are still processing what this Scorpio – Snake medicine has shared and is continuing to share.  How are you being affected by this transformational experience? In theJourney Through the Zodiac (E-Book) we must pass through the 8th HOUSE (Scorpio) which represents how we deal with death, dying, rebirth and hidden resources. We continue the journey to the 9th HOUSE (Sagittarius) where there is a spark of light that beckons us from the “dark void“ to come into the Light and see things from a different perspective. That is where we are NOW, yet this Saturn in Scorpio energy will need to be integrated, it continues on until Sept. 2015, and we have time to learn the lesson … to Master the meaning of this teaching of surrender, passion and unconditional love.

When we entered into the Sun in Scorpio I KNEW this was going to be intense. As the snake sheds its skin, it KNOWS HOW to relax and allow the process (resistance hurts!) This is so that a new, healthy and vibrant body can emerge! Jokingly I said “Pack your bags, we’re going to the void” … little did I know what those words really meant! I packed a lot of fear, anger, guilt, confusion and suffering into this trip, things that had been “stuffed” to deal with later and “stuff” that wasn’t even mine! The VOID is where we “create” our reality, fear or love, suffering or peace and I was able to unload a lot of excessive baggage while the Sun was in Scorpio. Issues of sexuality, misuse of power and survival fears were also there. I also realized that there is no “mine” and “yours” … ultimately there is only ONENESS and what I learned was to bring it back here and share with others. So many of us have felt this dark night of the soul and we give thanks to Great Spirit that we KNOW that everything is happening FOR us and not TO us.  It IS ALL to evolve our Spirit! To be grateful for the lessons and the opportunites to CHOOSE love over fear. Lots to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.

Mercury (in Scorpio) turns direct on 11/26/12 and this has been a good retrograde period for so many, going “back” into old “power controlling” energies of the Scorpio wounds and “seeing” them for what they really are. Once we can identify them, Saturn then helps us to KNOW what the TRUTH is! We are the Teacher/Student and the Master and can choose to operate from a different frequency, anytime we want. Now enters Venus, bringing her passionate Scorpio goddess energy in and the power feels awesome! Until Dec. 15th, Venus dances through the dark and the light with renewed energy from the rebirthing experience. Enjoy the sensual delights and passion she brings to the occasion!


SAGITTARIUS (11/22 – 12/21) •Spirit Keeper: Mudjekeewis/Grizzly Bear •Power Direction: West •Element: Fire •Clan: Thunderbird •Animal Guide: Elk •Plant: Black Spruce •Stone: Obsidian •Moon: Long Snows
•Motto: “I Perceive”

Joining the ”group” is Sun in Sagittarius, the optimistic problem solver who has the vision to reach the top of the mountain and knows how to get there. Sagittarius leads us on a new magical journey, showing us how to reach out and trust others. There’s lots of solutions and resolutions going on when we listen.  Elk medicine has strong power, stamina and the strength to reach higher towards those dreams and goals. As we listen to our inner Guidance (Thunderbird) we are given the council to see what serves the Highest good of all. Obsidian helps mirror the experiences, often absorbing the energies as a way of healing any situation. (Be sure to cleanse your stones often when working with their energies) The Black Spruce Pine clears away the negative energies, breathe it in!

This is such a wonderful and exciting time to be in. We have the opportunity to face our fears, clear the “body” of toxic energies and claim our power in a humble and serving way. The TIME is NOW, we need your LIGHT Dear Ones!

We send Love and Blessings to you ALL and with deep gratitude to our Ancestors and ALL OUR RELATIONS we say AHO! THANK YOU!

Saturn & Mercury move into Scorpio (Snake) 10/5/2012


Snake (Scorpio) energy is here

Energies are beginning to shift as we move into teachings with Snake medicine, Scorpio. The planet Saturn (mastering our fears) has been in Libra for almost 3 years and we’ve ALL been learning about how to BALANCE our lives, seeing where our judgements and shallowness are and prejudices we still may have. Remember Libra is RAVEN so we’ve been “cawing/communicating” lots of information and everyone has a different and unique opinion as to where  we are in our “center”. Now, Scorpio (Snake) “teachings” starts this Friday the 5th of Oct. and we will be looking at our perceptions about death, dying, rebirth and the path of evolvement. Mercury (the communicator) also moves into Scorpio on the same day. We will be talking about ALL this for awhile now. Scorpio starts to evolve by recognizing the Scorpion “sting” that controls, poisons, paralyzes their “victim” with fear. It then evolves into the Snake, shedding its skin and old ways. Snake medicine is challenging for most people … FEAR of Snake indicates unresolved issues, this would be the time of healing. It takes courage to match forces with Scorpio’s but when you do, you earn their respect. The Snake then evolves into the Eagle, representing  true freedom … from doubt, worry and having NO FEAR!  So BE IT.

In astrology we have ways to see this energy and where it will be the strongest, by looking at a Natal birth chart. Every “HOUSE” holds a teaching and a gift, the chart reveals what position on the wheel you are in with this energy. Might be time to get a Natal chart or bring out yours and look!

“Snake people naturally have a grasp of other realms that are spiritual as well as material. Because of their inquisitive, investigative natures, they are able to bring the knowledge of these realms into form that is easily understood by other people. “The Medicine Wheel Earth Astrology” by Sun Bear & Wabun

We will bring in more information on this subject soon as the Sun enters Scorpio 10/22/12 and we get ready for the next round.

With love, blessings and gratitude to ALL OUR RELATIONS, thank you!

Oct. 1, 2012 observing the changing energies this week

Heartfelt Astrology

Can you believe it’s already October??? Today, as I took a look at the astrology calendar I saw a couple of RED FLAGS that reminded me of some major shifts. Like Jupiter in Gemini turns retrograde this Thursday the 4th and Saturn moves into Scorpio (until 9-17-2015).

Please listen to the new AUDIO BLOG  (click on date) 10-1-2012

Since my “incident” of a slip & fall a few years back my hands aren’t typing as well (or should I say my 2 fingered pecking!) so today my husband suggested we record what was coming in rather than writing it. This is it, this is me and this is what I “see”.

Peace and kindness   xoxoxo*

Mercury (Leo-Sturgeon) turning retrograde 7/15 – 8/8/2012

When Mercury turns retrograde many people start to panic and blame it for everything going awry … not so. My perspective is that retrogrades give us opportunities to “go back” and get things we may have missed. Perhaps it’s time for a new battery in your car, a new phone or computer, review contracts or reading the “fine print” and anything involving communications, short trips and electrical/techno related issues. It can be FUN with the right ATTITUDE and it’s in the sign of LEO, so it will be dramatic for sure.

Sturgeon (sign of Leo)

Sturgeon, strong, proud and intelligent!

Leo, (STURGEON) is known for being the KING of Fish … Royalty!  They live to be very old and are known to be WISE by not being caught! Some have been recorded to 300 pounds and over 12 feet long! Sturgeon people can be ancient in their “knowing” and can access that when in balance. Their challenge is arrogance and ego, when they come from their heart they are amazing at entertaining us with their wit and charm. Since Sturgeon’s medicine stone is Garnet, this deep red color enhances relationships and friendships in a deep and lasting way. The Red Raspberry is their plant, which can show how we must be aware of the thorns before we get to the sweet berries!

So please enjoy this Mercury Retrograde and see all the blessings that come when we are heart centered. We give thanks to ALL OUR RELATIONS and Sun Bear & Wabun for their beautiful information. Visit Marlise Wabun Wind for the book: http://www.marlisewabunwind.com/
