Eclipse Season Preview!

Turning Water into Wine – The Naked Songwriter Podcast #55

Guess who’s coming to Christmas dinner? A solar eclipse conjunct Jupiter in Capricorn! Plus, surviving the holidaze, aka gamma ray bombardment from deep space Source objects aligned with the sign of Sagittarius. And how the 12/12 Gemini Full Moon encourages us to revoke old soul contracts and get on board the 2020 transformation train.

Miracles are on offer in December but you probably won’t land the big one all by your lonesome. Heading towards the January 2020 Saturn-Pluto conjunction, you’d better find your cosmic krewe.

Plus, a sneak peek at the January 10 lunar eclipse in Cancer, opposition Saturn and Pluto.

How Doing What You Love Saves the World

Jupiter Conjunct the Galactic Center

The Naked Songwriter Podcast #54

Dear fellow weirdo:

Your life purpose was never about trying to contort, stuff and cram yourself into one of society’s little boxes.

Doing what you love saves the world

With my beloved by the ocean, rainbows over water, making music with my friends.

You’re an alien.

You’re a galactic adventurer, a starseed, an evolutionary outlier.

You’re a mutant, a freak, a warrior, a savior.

You came here to do your thing as passionately and as fully as possible.

You came here to bring beauty, not to share in the pain of those poor souls who have contracted to stay in the old 3D reality.

Now is the time when it’s really helpful to be clear on this.

More prosperity and bliss can be yours. That’s the message of Tuesday’s Taurus Full Moon and the rare Mercury transit across the face of the Sun on 11/11. We are still in the throes of letting go of old trauma and limiting beliefs, with Mercury still retrograde and conjunct the Sun in Scorpio. But if we are willing to trust ourselves and the Great Creator, we can tune in to a powerful new reality that we have the opportunity to create together.

The October 27 New Moon in Scorpio opposition Uranus the Awakener in Taurus = a month in which anything can happen.

Find out who’s really serving God and who are the minions of the devil. And why this is a month where you really want to focus on the good — with money planet Venus joining fellow lucky star Jupiter (spending his last month in Sagittarius until he returns in 2030). It’s Scorpio season, baby. Time for those of you who are spiritually wealthy to ground that prosperity in the material world.

Owning Your Shadow

Libra and the Mirror of Relationship

The Naked Songwriter Podcast #50

Owning Your Shadow | Libra and The Mirror of RelationshipsToday’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.

Miraculous: The Angel Experiment

Pisces Full Moon Conjunct Neptune & Black Moon Lilith

The Naked Songwriter Podcast #49

Pisces Full Moon September 13 2019 astrology podcastToday’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:

A Life Like Mine – Virgo New Moon Aug 30 2019

The Truth About Following Your intuition

The Naked Songwriter Podcast #48

DK Brainard astrology podcast Virgo New Moon hurricane Miami Beach

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.
