Weekly Astrology: December 17-23, 2018

From December 17th to the 23rd giving and receiving love is the dominant theme. Taking in a live performance will lighten everyone’s sprits.  Music, drama, acts of kindness put us in a progressive frame of mind.  We get further if we are sure of our goal.  This can be a pleasant moment to just float. 17th – Monday […]

December 2018

Mercury turns Direct on the 6th, enters Sagittarius on the 12th,  then Conjuncts Jupiter on the 21st.  This will be the third and final Conjunction of these two until January 2020.  Mercury, Jupiter, and Sagittarius all have to do with information, travel and expansion. December will be adventuresome and exploratory.  We are apt to concoct big […]

Weekly Astrology December 1-9, 2018

From December 1st to the 9th is a ground clearing time.  We should get rid of everything that has outlived its usefulness.  The past is frozen, but there are a few lingering considerations that we can put to rest; it’s time to get closure.  A clean slate helps us recognize genuine opportunity. 1st – Saturday –  Mercury enters […]

Daily Tip

When we bring the elements, like water, into our lives, understanding their aliveness, we are creating an alignment with the element itself and ourselves.

Grace a book by Jonni Pollard

Grace

A Practical Exercise in Grace Excerpted from The Golden Sequence: A Manual for Reclaiming Our Humanity by Jonni Pollard (BenBella Books; November 2018) When we think of grace, we might think of the pristine flow of a swan gliding across a still lake, or the poised elegance of a ballerina effortlessly twirling on a pointed […]

Stop Looking To Others

Stop Looking To Others

Stop Looking to Others to Create a Life of Joy by Renee Linnell, Author of The Burn Zone: A Memoir Originally published on Psych Central I believe there is not enough dialogue out there about soul-sickness, especially among wealthy communities. We are taught to believe from a young age that once we have the perfect […]

Weekly Astrology October 22-31, 2018

From October 22nd to the 31st gratitude is the magical attitude that allows us to really appreciate how fortunate we are.  As some closely held possession is swept away, we have the good fortune to see that our attachments to things in the material world stop us from progressing.  If we know what to look for, this […]

Why I Wrote The Burn Zone

Why I Wrote The Burn Zone

  By Renee Linnell I wrote The Burn Zone as a catharsis; I had to get the story out of me. Dr. Maya Angelou once said, “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” I believe she is right. The story was consuming me. It was tearing me apart from within. […]

Astrology for October 2018

Venus turns Retrograde on the 5th of October and reenters Libra on the 31st.  As Venus rules Libra (sign of relationships), this backward motion will give us an opportunity to reevaluate how we relate to others.  With Mars in Aquarius still close to the South Node of the Moon at the beginning of October, we are seeing residual anger […]

Authenticity

Authenticity

How to be authentic when you are feeling imperfect One of my life goals is to be authentic. Initially, this may seem or sound simple. Being authentic simply means to be yourself, speak your truth, or be true to yourself. However, one of the hardest parts about being authentic is recognizing that I am not […]

5 Meditation tips for an overactive mind

Meditation Tips

5 Meditation Tips for an Overactive Mind Many gurus, spiritual teachers, and psychologists talk about how meditation is easy, relaxing, and soothing.  This may be true for some people. However, for those of you, like myself, who have an overactive mind, meditation never really has come easy to me and sometimes it is not exactly relaxing […]

World Changes

As our world changes it is deeply important that we remember our infinite creator abilities. We are made in the image of Creation; we embody the likeness and image of Creation with us every day. Some people called his creative energy a Life Force, some people call this Mother/Father God. However, whatever you call it, […]

Astrology for August 2018

Astrology for August 2018

Our good intentions envisioned in July unravel. Surprisingly, August turns out to be the central month in 2018.  The Solar Eclipse on the 11th gives an extra blast of energy, either squelching or boosting projects from last month. Mars Retrogrades back into Capricorn on the 12th, providing the stability we need in order to utilize our energy more efficiently.  Mars (god of war) is finally backing […]

Becoming Starlight

Becoming Starlight

Heaven. There are many different words for it in many different languages. And each day, it’s a “place” that’s referred to more than any other in the world. Why? Every single race, religion, ethnicity, and culture—members of each one believe in the concept of Heaven. Religious scholars and philosophers have debated, argued, and fought over […]

Hope

Hope

With all that’s going on in our nation that raises an eyebrow or breaks a heart; with a fearful minority voice masquerading as the dominant voice; with the hypocrisy of what is civil and what is not — this is not the time to lose hope. Because hope has already won. This is why we […]

Astrology for July 2018

Astrology for July 2018

Last year on November 11th, Saturn Trined Uranus; they are within orb of this Trine all month (and next month too), but they never reach exactitude again.  We are trying to balance our urge for innovation, even revolution, with our need for stability.  With Saturn in Capricorn, his own sign, and Uranus in his fall in Taurus, Saturn […]

by Debbie Augenthaler, Author of You Are Not Alone: A Heartfelt Guide for Grief, Healing, and Hope My father was a Vietnam veteran who suffered from PTSD. A part of me always grieves for him, for how he suffered and how his illness affected our family. And a part of me will always grieve for […]
