Taurus New Moon Beltane Astrology Podcast DK BrainardThe May 4 Taurus New Moon coincides with Beltane, the ancient cross-quarter festival celebrating love, flowers, and the abundance of Nature.

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.

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.”

The End of Scarcity and the Return of the Bird Tribes

The Naked Songwriter Podcast – Episode #31: The End of Scarcity

Why the end of scarcity on Planet Earth can happen within 5-10 years and what you can do to make that a reality.

The End of Scarcity and the Return of the Bird Tribes - Naked Songwriter podcast #31

We all know that imagination is stronger than willpower and that, among the mental powers, only imagination is capable of creating new forms and experiences. So why do we continue to focus on the list of problems and obstacles we supposedly must overcome to get what we want? Why don’t we focus instead on the list that holds our heart’s desires?

Why would our governments lie about free energy and alien technologies? Why would we consider bringing about the end of scarcity in our lifetimes such a crazy idea that we — the artists, visionaries, meditators, yogis, and healers — don’t even discuss it?

I discovered intriguing answers to these questions in two strangely resonant mythologies: the ancient Native American ‘bird tribes’ and the modern phenomenon of UFOs and an alien-influenced shadow government. Continue reading
