This Libra lunar cycle has been shockingly difficult for many of us. If you’ve been getting hammered by the gods (or in your relationships), here’s the good news: It’s all designed to help you have a real encounter with your inherent greatness.
Today’s Libra New Moon opposition Chiron in Aries empowers us to create or attract the supportive relationships we desire. It also highlights the evolutionary imperative to own your own shadow.
There’s tremendous opportunity within the coming chaos for those who are willing to do whatever it takes to evolve beyond illusory limits and step into the power of the Authentic Self.
I dig into some of that chaos with a look at the 21st degree of Capricorn, scene of next week’s Pluto station as well as a main player in the Oct. 13 Aries Full Moon, this year’s Saturn retrograde and the Jan. 10, 2020 lunar eclipse.
With Jupiter whipping through his home sign of Sagittarius between now and Dec. 2, 2019, this Fall is a rare opportunity to radically expand your awareness and lay the foundation for prosperity and success in the turbulent years to come.
Introducing: Beyond Mind
Tatiana Sakurai and I are launching a new coaching intensive / experiment in group consciousness called Beyond Mind: The Next Generation. The first three-month leg of our journey together starts Thursday, Sept. 26 and runs through the Winter Solstice.
Who Is Beyond Mind For?
Beyond Mind: The Next Generation is for you if:
You have a dream. You have a persistent vision of what your real life feels like and you’re tired of trying to manifest it.
You’re willing (or at least willing to be willing!) to do whatever it takes to develop an unshakeable faith in your own inner knowing.
You’re sick of thinking, scheming, bargaining, worrying, and trying to work your way to inner peace and outer success.
You’re ready to move from the 3D world of thinking and ego into the 5D reality of direct knowing.
Because we’ve done it. We’ve demonstrated that dreams do come true. Not through ceaseless striving or self-sacrifice but simply by surrendering the egoic mind and making the radical decision to always trust your inner guidance.
The ego – the rational, thinking mind – is the enforcer of 3D reality. We are entering a new world era in 2020 where the old ways don’t work anymore. When you are truly embodied, you don’t have to think about what to do next because your body always knows what is best for you.
This is the quantum leap from 3D to 5D reality.
We will be teaching you a structured, scalable system of lightworker tools and practices in a safe, inclusive space, including:
Applying spiritual truths to daily life
Learning to trust your inner guidance and follow it, no matter what
Clearing negative ancestral and family patterns and limiting beliefs
Identifying and clearing the energy of psychic attack and influence
The power of connecting with your inner child
Letting go of toxic relationships and playing small
Jupiter favors the bold – those who are willing to dare greatly – and with the hardcore astrology of 2020 looming, this truly is the time to go ALL IN with your spiritual practices and creating the life and the world you want to live in.
In addition, Saturn stationed direct in his home sign of Capricorn on September 18. Saturn direct gives us the clarity and patience to channel Jupiter’s visionary exuberance into structures that will stand the test of time.
In other words: this is the time to stop talking about what you want to do with your life and start doing it. The Saturn-Pluto conjunction and generation-defining Great Conjunction of 2020 are calling us to step up, reclaim our power, and radically reshape our world.
Jupiter and Saturn are conspiring to turn dreams into reality this autumn
I know what it feels like to settle.
I know how it feels to wake up and see a life that looks vaguely like “my life” – only smaller and sadder.
I know how it feels to soldier on bravely, doing my best to be a good father to my children and a responsible human – even while feeling like I’m dying inside.
I know how it feels to stop believing in a lifelong dream because you just can’t stand the thought of being disappointed one more time.
I’m not a very patient person by nature. I can get easily frustrated when things don’t go the way I want them to. But I’m also very persistent. And I believe in an orderly Universe. I believe in a Universe where God wants us to manifest our hearts’ deepest desires. I don’t believe the Universe wants us to suffer.
And I’ve acted on those beliefs for many years now. Even during periods of despair, when it felt like nothing I did was ever going to amount to what I wanted, I kept up my spiritual practice. I kept reading self-help books. I kept getting sessions with coaches and healers.
And you know what? It took time and practice. But I started getting better and better at identifying and clearing toxic shame. Which enabled me to go beyond mind and return my focus and energy into what I love and want to create more of. Now?
I’m actually living in a reality that looks like the vision boards I made when I was trying to learn “how to manifest.”
Pisces Full Moon Conjunct Neptune & Black Moon Lilith
The Naked Songwriter Podcast #49
Today’s Pisces Full Moon conjunct Neptune and Black Moon Lilith may have us feeling like the 2019 spin cycle will never end. But it’s the final scene before the curtain rolls up on a brand new act. With Jupiter direct in his home sign of Sagittarius and Saturn stationing direct Wednesday in his home sign of Capricorn, we can finally start to gain traction in our material world endeavors. This positive, forward-moving energy should carry us into December.
My friend Corin Grillo joins me on the pod to talk about her new book The Angel Experiment and our relationship with the gods – astrological and otherwise. Is astrology still valid at a time when both the Earth and humanity are called to evolve into higher awareness?
The conversation – as usual with Corin – is funny, heartfelt, irreverent and inspiring. Check it out:
Friday’s Virgo New Moon brings fresh, forward-focused energy and the promise of prosperity and renewal. The Virgo-Pisces axis always brings up themes of control, surrender, integrity and faith and this New Moon cycle is challenging us to step up our game!
The New Moon featured a rare conjunction of all the personal planets – Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars – and a Grand Earth Trine to Uranus in Taurus and Saturn in Capricorn. This gives us a lot of leverage with the stars in the coming weeks. In this podcast I tell some personal stories about radical synchronicity and what it really means to trust your intuition.
Aquarius Full Moon + Jupiter Direct – August 15, 2019
The Naked Songwriter Podcast #47
Everything is about to change with Jupiter direct in Sagittarius….How to deal with the suckiness of everything while staying open to imminent opportunities to change everything….Why your meta narrative – the stories you tell yourself about yourself and about the world – need some serious attention in August 2019…the truth about the 1960s and how it relates to where we are at this cosmic moment….
Mercury stations direct today, opposite the July 16 eclipse degree. After the long, deep dive of the 2019 summer eclipse season, the Leo New Moon brings a major renewal of energy and energy of renewal. It’s time to stand together in our power, joy and Authentic Self expression and create the world we want to live in.
We explore the post-eclipse astrological landscape and preview Jupiter’s return to direct motion on August 11. And we rant about the War on Children, invite the good aliens to intervene in Earth affairs, and put the corporate evildoers on notice!
Mercury retrograde tunes us into the hidden reality of the self while dark lord Pluto brings up old family and ancestral patterns so we can clear them. The July 16 Capricorn eclipse offers huge potential for freedom and expansion…if we can stay patient and realize the opportunities waiting below the surface of the mind.
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.
