What the heck is a sacred gyroscope?

A Sacred Gyroscope is a shamanic way of looking at and interacting with your world. It helps you see where you are in the world. It enhances your strengths and bolsters your weaknesses. It can show you your path. It can protect you. It includes the relational directions like left, right, up, and down, as…

[Monday Message] Practice makes perfect

Spiritual practice implies action; practice is a verb as well as a noun. Sitting around and talking about it is merely philosophy, which is nice, but doesn’t get you anywhere until put into practice. Practice also implies that we’re not going to be doing it perfectly any time soon. Lama Khemsar Rinpoche has been known…

February Cross Quarter Contemplation

This is one of the two Cross Quarters (sometimes known as Imbolc, or First Milk of the Lamb) which offer us the opportunity to get more present and aware of what we have in the here and now. The actual astrological date for the Cross Quarter this year is February 4th. Taking the Wheel of…

Looking toward classes for 2021

Good grief, it’s mid November already. Still feels like March. How odd. As I tend to do around this time of year, I’m weighing and evaluating my offerings for the next calendar year (actually, looking through the archives, I may not have made a post like this since 2017). It’s going to be at least…

My ever fabulous Social Media Marketing Assistant, Teagan, says I should give y’all more resources, like links, and she and Dave put together this treasure trove for you: (1m00) When the veil thins.

Ongoing geomagnetic storm increasing on September 29th

SpaceWeather issued this missive about geomagnetic activity over the weekend: A solar wind stream is heading for Earth, and it could spark the strongest geomagnetic storm in more than a year. NOAA forecasters say storm levels could reach category G2 (moderately strong) when the gaseous material arrives on Sept. 29th. Bright “equinox auroras” are already…

Cycles of the Goddess

In 2020, instead of doing a Full Moon Women’s Circle, I will be offering an online subscription program of Goddess-centric devotional material. All live sessions will be available via video conference and phone. The program will still incorporate some of Lasara Firefox Allen‘s work on the fivefold goddess model, as well as aiming to elevate…

Use Mercury Transit to power your changes!

On Monday (11/11), Mercury will transit (cross) the Sun’s face. On the West Coast, it will start at 4:36am, peak at 7:20am, and finish at 10:04am. The next Mercury Transit won’t be until 2032. Yes yes, that’s only 12 years off, but still. So, this event is Mercury (conscious thought, communication) stepping between us and…

Fabric arts ritual with an activist purpose

Back in July, I posted a ritual (not mine) to help protect immigrants. With all the hubub around Title X funds, I would like to offer you another ritual, this time from Crafting Change, for Abortion Patients, Providers, and Protectors. What you will need: * A quiet space to do this work * That which…

Why is the Internet important for change?

The Internet is a manifestation of the Fourth Dimension, what some people call the Astral. There is no time, no space, and you are not defined by race, heritage, gender, orientation, religion, or socioeconomic status unless you choose to be. This is not to say that you shouldn’t choose to be, only that you have…

Pagan Astrological Celebrations and Observances

Every tradition that I know of has sacred days they observe and honor. There are many variations in observances under the large umbrella of Paganism; a good rule of thumb, though, is to look at the Solar and Lunar cycles as guides. The Lunar Cycle is 28.25(ish) days long and run from New Moon to…
