Joy and Change: Moving Into the New Paradigm

It’s the last month of 2019! A few more holidays to get through and then we move into 2020, the year of (numerologically) Four! We are mid-paradigm shift, and this is the year the hard work really starts. We all feel like we’ve been working hard already, possibly even struggling, so it’s important to make…

The Magdalene on balance

Balance is important. Without access to the full spectrum of expression of a given thing, imbalance occurs, which means that the expression of that thing will be potentially problematic. In this abstract, this is either an obvious statement or completely incomprehensible, depending on the person. If you only ever exercise your lower leg by pointing…

Forecast for June 2019

The overarching pattern of the forecast for June suggests to me that the focus is on prosperity. Not necessarily on having it, but on paying attention, planing, evaluating your relationship to it, and holding space for it. If you do have it, be careful, conscious, and deliberate in how you use it. If you’re working…

The dilemma of spirituality

I truly believe that the reason people choose fundamentalist religion over more flexible belief structures is because they are easy. There is little, if any, self examination required, no experimentation to see how a concept feels or fits into your framework. You’re not expected to create or maintain a relationship with your spirituality beyond following…

Hey, look! I got press!

A while back, I did an interview with VoyageLA Magazine. It has made its way to the public! Excerpts: Both my personal and work practices are a synthesis of my studies, from a distinct Shamanistic viewpoint that honors the masculine and the feminine, with a focus on community, equality, and empowerment.

Understanding where the imbalance is

A friend of mine asked, in a fit of frustration, “What is wrong with people?” I suspect many of us ask that several times a week in various scenarios. Sometimes the problem is us, sometimes it is Them. Our frustration with other people boils down to not having an understanding of the root of the…

The search for abundance

The Daily Message for today (as I’m writing this, anyway) was about Abundance, which was really timely, because I had let me head get stuck in the illusion of lack. Luckily, I hadn’t gotten so stuck in fear that I wasn’t seeing clues when they get dropped, so I read the whole post. For those…

The Matrix Talk Show: Predictions for 2019

On the 13th of January, I participated in a discussion with Richard Simon Kahn and Patricia Asheme Bankins on our forecasts for 2019. We seem to all be on the same page, which could be heartening or spooky, depending on your perspective.

Numerology and today’s date

Numerology is a fascinating practice. I find it more useful than astrology, in terms of being a personal descriptor, and it works extremely well in conjunction with astrology for forecasting over the long term. In fact, my forecast reports combine the two. Today’s date is a fascinating one. 2018 reduces (I’ll explain that term in…
