Even the most casual observer knows that the Moon continually changes shape in the sky. This is because its regular orbit of approximately 28 days puts it at different points relative to the Earth and the Sun, making it go through phases.
So why should we care about this? Well, as the nearest celestial object to Earth, the Moon has a special place in Astrology, as well as the psychic realm itself. Our planet, as well as our bodies, consist of over two-thirds water, and therefore the Moon’s gravitational force affects us in different ways at different points in its orbit.
It’s worth noting here that the word lunatic comes from Luna, the Latin for “Moon.” But the Moon doesn’t make us insane, as some ancient stories would have us believe. However, a recent study suggest the Moon phases may affect our sleep patterns, and it has also been shown that the Moon influences the behavior of various animals. Read the rest of this entry »
Lately, I have noticed my body requiring a bit more sleep, and my clients have been expressing the same feeling. I also had a small injury around my heel, when I stepped off the treadmill a couple of weeks ago (or I think that is what happened). I have been wondering if the pain was causing the exhaustion, or was it the change of season, or something else?
In September this year, we experienced two major Eclipses. With Eclipses we are invited to make changes, so transformation can take place. It may take a couple of months, which often can cause us to need more rest, so our body, mind, and spirit can catch up. Read the rest of this entry »
This year we were up on four occasions, watching as the Sun, and the Moon, Lady Moon, were in the sky at the same time. The sun passed over the Moon, turning the Moon and sky blood red… four times in a row. The whole of the purple, darkened sky lighted up as if thousands of fireworks had burst into colors raining down on our spirits with beauty.
The first Blood Moon eclipse in this total series of four happened on April 15, 2014 and the last one happened on October 8, 2014. This special occurrence is known as a lunar tetrad. The next total eclipse will take place on April 4, 2015.
The majesty and wonder of the Hunter’s Moon, the Blood Moon, reminds us of the glories of the universe. With this we see the doors to Other Worlds, the Other Side opening up, allowing the lights to come back in. With this, we can expect great events, wondrous omens of changes to come.

Benjamin Franklin was not only one of the Founding Fathers of the United States; he was also an author, scientist, inventor, and diplomat. What you perhaps also don’t know is that he was a highly skilled astrologer!
“Suffer me to observe that whoever studies the eclipses of former Ages and compares them with the great events that happened (as every true astrologer ought to do) shall find that the fall of the Assyrian, Persian, Grecian, and Roman monarchies, each of them, was remarkably preceded by great and total eclipses of the heavenly bodies. Observations of this kind, joined with the ancient and long-tryed rules of our art… make me tremble for the Empire now in being.”
Many great minds have been fascinated by the mysterious depth and magical accuracy of astrology. Sir Isaac Newton (perhaps one of the greatest intellects to have graced our planet) once had the following exchange with Edmund Halley:
Edmund Halley: “Why do you believe in Astrology?”
Sir Isaac Newton: “I have studied the subject, Mr. Halley. You have not!”
“The Study of the Sun, the Moon, stars, eclipses, day and night, began well before recorded history. There are reindeer bones and tusks of mammoths from the Ice Age that have notches carved on them picturing the phases of the Moon. These bones and tusks are dated between 25,000 and 10,000 B.C., and some scientists place them as long ago as 32,000 B.C.!” Read the rest of this entry »
