Finding Your Hidden Treasure

The Naked Songwriter Podcast #44

The Chandra symbol for the degree of today’s total solar eclipse is “Monstrosities in glass jars in a sideshow.” But the higher vibration of this eclipse is “A hidden treasure waits to be found“.

This eclipse – which has come with a lot of pain and angst for many of us – is actually trying to help us connect the dots between the hideous and the sublime. Follow the secret map to the treasure inside your soul with me.

Sagittarius Full Moon Podcast June 17 2019

The Cosmic Imperative

The Naked Songwriter Podcast #43

Today’s Sagittarius Full Moon conjunct the Galactic Center caps a week of intense emotional waves, preparing us for the upcoming eclipses in Cancer/Capricorn. For those on the path of ascension, this alignment marks the beginning of a period of accelerated evolution.
Sagittarius Full Moon Galactic Center Podcast DK Brainard

We’ve been bombarded by high-frequency rays emanating from the center of our galaxy all month. This can feel overwhelming at times, but it is flooding our bodies and minds with higher-order frequencies that enable us to release massive amounts of old trauma, programming, and blocked emotions from the mind-body system.

In this podcast, I explore how the alignment of Mars and Mercury in Cancer opposition Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn has been building to peak intensity just in time for the release offered by today’s Full Moon.

Spiritually, the Galactic Center seems to function as a transmitter of Source energy. Scientists are discovering that – even in 3D reality – the GC is incredibly powerful and mysterious. In addition to shooting particles out at greater than the speed of light, the GC possesses a well-defined structure that looks curiously like a 3D rendering of the infinity symbol.

Sagittarius Full Moon Galactic Center DK BrainardNASA scientists recently discovered “a previously unseen structure” at the center of the Milky Way – two gamma-ray-emitting bubbles that extend 25,000 light-years north and south of the galactic center.

“The bubble emissions are much more energetic than the gamma-ray fog seen elsewhere in the Milky Way and appear to have well-defined edges,” according to NASA. “The structure’s shape and emissions suggest it was formed as a result of a large and relatively rapid energy release – the source of which remains a mystery.”

Beyond Mind :: Eclipse Season + Mercury Retrograde

Join us in emotional freedom and going ‘beyond mind’ this eclipse season

If you’ve been feeling the crazy vibes that came up this week, then you just got a preview of what the astrology of eclipse/Mercury retrograde season has in store for us.

Beyond Mind Eclipse Season Call Series | DK BrainardLightworker extraordinaire Tatiana Sakurai and I are hosting a series of live calls to help you navigate the energies of this summer’s eclipse season, which is already in effect thanks to galactic activations at the June 3 New Moon and June 17 Full Moon.

It’s going to be a wild ride in June and July, but it’s also a cosmic opportunity to free ourselves from old baggage, limiting beliefs, and toxic shame FOREVER.

The series starts next Sunday with the energy of the Sagittarius full moon to get us prepared for what’s to come so that we’ll be ready to get the most out of the healing opportunities the cosmic forces are presenting. Continue reading

June and July 2019 Astrology: Profound Healing or Potential Disaster?

Deep Space Activations – the Great Attractor and Galactic Center

If you’re already feeling that familiar eclipse season craziness, you’re not alone. We are being bombarded with high-frequency light information from two of the major Source emanation points in our known cosmos – the Great Attractor at 14 Sagittarius and the Galactic Center at 27 Sagittarius.

As I mentioned in the last podcast, the June 3 Gemini New Moon happened in close alignment with the Great Attractor and the June 17 Sagittarius Full Moon aligns with the Galactic Center or Great Central Sun.

Sagittarius Full Moon conjunct Galactic Center June 17 2019

Mars and Mercury are opposition Saturn and Pluto at the June 17 Sagittarius Full Moon. This alignment prefigures the July 16 Capricorn lunar eclipse and aligned with the nodes — prefiguring the July 16 lunar eclipse at 24 Capricorn.

These deep space consciousness centers affect us in much the same way as eclipses do. They accelerate evolution, move us forcefully beyond our comfort zones, and activate our internal God-consciousness so that we are no longer able to buy into Matrix-level programming about who we are and what we can/should be doing with our lives.

They also activate us on a physical level. This can manifest as anxiety, nerves, confusion, and sudden-onset healing crises in the body.

Family Shadows: Mercury & Mars Out of Bounds in Cancer

Both Mercury and Mars have been out of bounds (OOB) in the sign of Cancer  as we head into the June 17 Full Moon. Out of bounds planets are considered to have gone beyond the jurisdiction of the Sun, the ruler of the solar system. This doesn’t make them ‘bad’ but it does tend to  give them a certain outlaw / lone wolf quality and push them to act in extreme ways. Continue reading

No More Scraps: Scorpio Full Moon and Venus-Uranus May 2019

Reclaiming Our Power from Abuse and Trauma

Scorpio Full Moon Venus conjunct Uranus astrology chart

It’s Sunday morning, the day after the Scorpio Full Moon. I’m in a motel room in Los Angeles, listening to the sounds of traffic on the street below and thinking about the Japanese man who survived both the Hiroshima and Nagasaki atomic bomb blasts at the end of World War II.

I’m thinking about my own life journey as an abuse and trauma survivor. And I’m thinking about my female clients, friends, and colleagues who have spent a lifetime struggling to overcome the insidious effects of sexual abuse.

I’m thinking that the bad news that fuels the patriarchal control systems continues to seep like radioactive waste into the ground water of the collective consciousness.

And I’m also rejoicing because it’s clear to me that our filtration systems – our psychological and spiritual immune systems – are evolving. Continue reading

Just Beyond the Monkey Mind

What We Can Learn About Manifesting from the Libra Full Moon and the 2019 Jupiter Retrograde

The Naked Songwriter Podcast #40

Jupiter retrograde 2019 astrology podcast

 

“How do we overcome the monkey mind?” How do we tune out the collective angst – or the difficult emotions in our relationship – and get back into the flow of abundance and joy?

This question shows up in the degree symbols for the April 19 Libra Full Moon. There’s a lot of planetary change happening with Jupiter stationing retrograde on April 10, Saturn about to go retrograde, and Mercury soon to be joined by Venus  in impulsive, action-oriented Aries.

The answer is found, as usual, just beneath the surface of ordinary awareness. In this podcast, I share some easy-to-use strategies that can help you stay sane and keep creating the life you want even when the whole world around you seems bent on self-destruction.

Plus, acoustic renditions of a Palace Brothers favorite and an original ballad about riding the bus.

Aries, Equinox, Libra Full Moon Podcast

The Apothecary of Desire

The Naked Songwriter Podcast #39 – Libra Full Moon March 20 2019

Libra Full Moon astrology podcast 2019 - "The Apothecary of Desire"

The Apothecary of Desire

The new astrological year kicks off with a Libra Full Moon opposition Chiron in Aries. This supermoon happens just hours after the spring equinox with the Sun and Chiron conjunct the Aries Point, where the collective consciousness intersects with our personal awareness. The symbols for the Libra Full Moon are all about finding buried treasure – but the nature of the treasure might just surprise you.

I explore the ongoing Pisces Mercury Retrograde in light of Chiron’s shift from Pisces into Aries. A lot of grief is in the ethers, and a lot of ‘loose cannon’ psychic energy is flying around: sensitives be aware!

Plus, Uranus in Taurus, new music and the potential for instant manifestation. As John Sandbach writes of the degree symbol for the March 20 Libra Full Moon: “Desire and need combined with pure intent can create their own fulfillment spontaneously.”
