A powerhouse Grand Cross Full Moon is coming up on Thursday, January 12th.
A Grand Cross is when 4 planets are in 4 different corners, all at the same degree, creating a - you guessed it - cross in the sky. This line up is fairly rare, and the planets involved are jostling up what you thought you wanted. It signals a time of something NEW being birthed based on the pressure to get things figured out.
Thursday's Grand Cross Full Moon is at 22 degrees Cancer, with the other key planets being in the Cardinal signs: the Sun in Capricorn, Uranus in Aries, and Jupiter in Libra, all at 22 degrees.
Cardinal signs are the initiators of the zodiac; they get things started and moving forward with a specific intention and motivation. Cardinal signs are connected with the beginning of all four seasons: Aries (Spring); Cancer (Summer); Libra (Fall); and Capricorn (Winter). When we have a Grand Cross being activated, we can be overwhelmed by everything that needs to be done, or we can feel paralyzed by the choices and just need to take a timeout. Tension is typical; uncertainty can loom. So much to do, and it can all feel like too much at once because you want to go in 4 different directions.
So what should you do if you are feeling this way?
The energy begins building when the Moon enters Cancer late on January 10th. Chances are, a choice point or decisions are coming up for you to make so you can decide how to move forward. Since this is a Full Moon, Luna holds the most power - she is asking you to listen to your heart, feelings, inner whispers, and gut instincts, all ruled by Cancer. Make decisions based on what you feel and trust it is the best messenger right now, even if other people have different intentions or needs from you. If something blows up, it is only temporary. If you need to change your mind based on what your heart says, allow yourself to do that. We're just coming out of Mercury retrograde, so revisions are all part of the game.
Chiron in Pisces is at 22 degrees, supporting the Moon's energy with healing, spiritual messages, intuitive strength, and an inner comfort that your feelings are meant to guide you right now. Trust your intuitive hits.
Additionally, we have Saturn in Sagittarius at 22 degrees forming a supportive trine to Uranus in Aries. This transit will be in effect for most of the year, and it is a great energy for building up dreams and trusting your new vision as you move forward.
Look at the house placement for 22 degrees Cancer in your chart to see where you'll feel the most energy and see the Grand Cross changes show up for you. Cancer is also women, mother, being a mother, the home and hearth, real estate, geneology, interior decorating, feeling safe, vulnerability, defensiveness, crabbiness, and personal space.
Here we go, 2017 is about to really get started!

I loved this book and couldn't put it down.
Your Soul's Plan: Discovering the Real Meaning of the Life You Planned Before You Were Born was written and researched by Robert Schwartz with the intention of remembering the deeper meaning of your life purpose. The main message of the book is simple: Every person, experience, situation and feeling in our lives was planned as a way to bring us back to love and to serve our soul's highest growing needs. With the assistance of channelers and intuitive counselors, Robert dives into various life circumstances of many people to determine why they chose to experience certain pivotal life events. Illness, addiction, deafness, blindness, difficult childhood experiences and death are all explored with soul-level honesty.
Reading these stories brings a new peace about life. One of my favorite aspects of the book was the personal understanding I experienced within myself due to similar life themes with other people's stories. Even though our life stories are very different, the intention to heal, Love and be of service is the same. Your Soul's Plan reminds us of our core purpose in living despite what our human minds and physical surroundings might interpret from time to time. Even though I "know" about these soul-level agreements and their purpose, I am still constantly in search of more stories and examples to learn from.
Below is a brief summary of what Your Soul's Plan offers:
If you would bring light and healing to humanity
but believe your impact constricted by role,
your power weakened by circumstance,
your reach limited by injury from physical accident,
rest assured that all the world knows that you are here.
You are heard. You are seen.
And where your voice does not carry
and your feet cannot tread,
even so does every soul feel your presence
on levels beyond conscious, human perception.
And your impact radiates farther still,
throughout the dimensions,
dimensions that appear to be
but are not
far removed from you.
The light you live,
the forgiveness you extend,
the healing you create,
and the love you remember yourself to be
are deeply felt by all in body
and all in spirit.

BOUNDARIES - how much do we love the ability to practice this one?
Thankfully when we stand strong in ourselves with honor and respect, our lives shift to reflect those healthy, strong boundaries back to us.
Keep believing in yourself and what you need, knowing that ultimately you are honoring the same in others, too, because loving yourself is always a win-win for everyone involved.

Some of us have been studying and practicing our spiritual "work" for a very long time (read: decades, lifetimes and eons).
Some are relatively new to this area of their lives and are gingerly exploring what teachers, books, and resources fit them at this stage.
And some are brand-brand new to all of the information circling and swirling around, potentially overwhelmed by the variances within spiritual circles, genres, and areas of interest.
The beauty of NOW is that there is room for everyone at any point on their spiritual expansion. We begin exactly where we are (at a new beginning, at the end of an important relationship, when we feel life is crumbling, when we feel there is more of us to discover) and proceed ahead at our preferred rate of speed and in the best way that fits us.
It's so Divinely beautiful that we have so many options and ways to create an experience to fit ourselves so perfectly. Perfectly.
We set it up this way, after all.
You gave yourself unlimited ways to experience your Human self so that the options and possibilities could keep unfolding. You didn't want only one way to know your Soul self. You choose unending ways.
Which means nothing is ever "the end." One choice is never completely conclusive. The journey always continues in some fashion. You choose to keep going and growing forward.
And how Divine that you have access to so many levels of energetic teachings, resources, books, communities, concepts, and theories right now. It's so perfect.
Your Soul expansion and growth is supported in unlimited ways, and all you need to do is keep going. Be curious. Follow the breadcrumbs. Examine what speaks to your interests. Listen to those that catch your ear. Pick up the book that is whispering to you.
What perfect choice will you make next?
Because you will make an amazing one. You always have.
This isn't a simple "happy-happy-joy-joy" message. It's a reminder that even if you are experiencing chaos, breakdowns, fears, uncertainty, doubt, stuckness and any other less desirable feeling, you are still able to make new choices at any moment regardless of anything else.
You are equiped with everything you need and will always figure it out even when you're not sure. Always. Because you always have.
Your life is unfolding perfectly every day. It may not be what your Ego-mind, or your family, or your younger Self, or your best friend imagined.
But no worries - it's exactly what your Soul dared to dream.

Your Light has been on a very long journey. Your Soul has traveled dimensions, timelines, and channels of Light to experience the fullness of a human adventure. You are a conglomeration of star sprinkles and Light waves compressed into a physical body that is alive with a story longer than time. You are timeless.
And yet you are here. On Earth with feet and hands and hair and an inquisitive mind. You feel an urge to question, explore, seek, and understand. You wish to discover your purpose, your reason for being. You feel led to understand your Soul more, which is such a human frame of mind because how do you understand that which is unexplainable in words? Your Soul is a dynamic energy field of Light, sound, and even higher vibrations that do not register on the energetic Richtor scale.
The Soul Purpose Question is typically asked because it holds great expectations and weight: “If I know my Soul Purpose, I will know everything I need to do!” The Soul Purpose Question is a big one, yet it has a very simple answer:
You are alive to upgrade all areas of your life to the vibration of Self-Love.

We are moving through fascinating energies right now, and if you're looking for a comprehensive resource with insights and brilliance about these changes, I am so delighted to share The Book of Transformation by Lisa Barretta with you.
In eight chapters, Lisa explains the layers of energies we are working with, the process of transition, the various roles held by many of us, and how to take care of ourselves during the shifts. Her writing style and wisdom makes every chapter digestable and interesting, especially with the easy-to-absorb checklists that allow you to do a quick check-in on your own experience.
Lisa has some of the best information I've read on the different generations and what they are here to contribute. As an Indigo born in the late 1970s, I personally appreciated her insights about this group and how we are here to do a lot of work, growth and transformation, personally and collectively.
The Book of Transformation guides you through the phases of your awakening and shows you what you can expect as you evolve into a world defined by frequency and light. In this revolutionary book, you will:

"I don't have a microphone, but I trust you hear my whispers at the right time.
I have so much to say, so I know you will turn to me when you are ready.
I have a lot to give and feel and express, but I believe in the power of your timing and needs.
I am always here when you are looking for a true voice, your inner wisdom and the best intentions.
I am always - and only - a heartbeat away. A heartbeat south of your mind. A heartbeat north of your gut.
And I want to lovingly remind you that heart starts with hear. HEAR-T."

The sun (sol) hits a stoppage point (stitium) - "solstice" - twice a year as it reaches the furthest points north or south of the equator. We know the bi-annual solstice days as the periods when seasons change and our days increase, or diminish, in light, depending on your hemisphere.
The winter solstice begins the change from dark back to light over the next 6 months. There is an invitation to integrate what you've learned since the summer solstice in June, and apply it to your next round of growth. The real force within you awakens at this time as you are wiser and stronger than before. The young Jedi is now an expert and a guide. The saga of soul growth continues on a new adventure with new peeps, new lessons, and crazy-wild terrain to explore. What was hidden within you now has the potential to be activated in the light.
As the winter solstice approaches on Dec 21 (summer solstice in the southern hemi), we are urged to turn our attention away from the outer world of hustle and bustle, and remember that we need periods of rest and reflection, including Netflix-binging on the couch.
Time to put away the credit cards, set down the mobile devices, and remember that we are bigger than this moment of busy-ness.
(Exception: This advice does not apply to husbands, boyfriends, or partners who still need to get their Christmas shopping done. }
Astrologically, the Sun moves from extrovert, popular, entertaining Sagittarius to pensive, serious, committed Capricorn on the solstice. We shift from the FUN to the MEANING of this time of year. Notice how the energy changes from feeling OMG-crazy to let's-get-serious about what matters and how much we need to spend? That's a gift of the solstice.
We also turn our attention to how far we have come in only 12 months and reflect back on what we've experienced and achieved.
How would you sum up 2016 for yourself?
The solstice invites contemplation and peace. You've done enough. You've done your best. You did all you could. You were perfect and wonderful and lovely, even when it was messy and scary and hard. You only have control over so much, so let yourself off the hook for the rest. Give yourself peace in the stillness. Find the lesson, the growth, the bigger picture - and breathe.
Recommendation: Peace is best served with chocolate and red wine.
Thankfully, that Saturn is in Sagittarius, so we really, truly have support to build a foundation for our next vision. What do you want to create in 2017 that supports your belief in yourself and your next round of dreams? That's a big question, and it will take work, but continue to believe in yourself. Be ready to get to work and follow your inspirations for the next call of your soul - the cosmos says it's time!
Other things to consider:
~ Stay flexible. More than ever, we have to be able to go with the flow and allow change to occur that is ultimately in the best interest for All. It will continue to look different, so don't get locked in to one expectation or a particular outcome.
~ Do it your way. Not what other people expect, or based on any limitations you've put on yourself previously, or what others are doing.
~ Be willing to be a NEW version of yourself. No need to hold on to what has expired or what no longer represents who you are because that may be just a bit too small now. Honor your own growth and changes - all of it.
~ The past 3 years have been tough on many levels. Now that time is over and it's time to move forward. Don't replay or rehash what's done and complete, silly!
~ Apply what you've learned. We were meant to be pushed and challenged over the past 3 years in order to now apply our knowledge and use it. You'll want to make new choices - so allow yourself to do that.
*The energy of 2017 is very different than the past 3 years have been! You'll feel it, too.*
Cheers and holiday spirits to you!

I blame it on The Walking Dead.
Once a year, I go into full-blown “emergency preparedness” mode and stock up on water, non-perishable essentials, survival basics, gallons of water, and extra batteries. I check flashlights, count extra candles, make sure we have extra pet food and baby food, and ask my husband to verify a full tank of gas in the generator. Living in Seattle means it’s a good idea to be ready for “the big one” and winter storms are common here, too.
And of course, there’s the whole apocalypse thing.
Then, once I’ve double-checked that we’re good to go with emergency essentials for at least a month of survival, I go to the grocery store and buy a cart full of non-perishable items to donate to the local food bank because some people are in survival mode on a daily basis.
Homelessness is at an all-time high in the United States, and parents struggle to provide meals for kids when they are not in school. Many kiddos do not get any gifts for the holidays. Families are looking to improve their lives, but this time of year can be extra hard. These needs can be invisible. We may not see hungry faces or empty stomachs, but they are there in silent ways.
This holiday season, if you can spare just $20 on extra food for your community, you will be doing more to help others than you may realize. Toy drives, coat drives, donating worn out clothes. Diapers, formula, and baby items are always needed and often overlooked. Even going to the dollar store and spending $20 on food goes a long way!
I also ordered some items online from Costco and had them directly shipped to the local community bank, making sure the shipping label says “donations” so they are delivered properly.
So just a suggestion if you’re looking to contribute to your community in a positive way this time of year.

Are you looking to develop your spiritual growth with consciousness, care, and compassion for ALL aspects of yourself?
I believe that now, more than ever, we cannot waste time or energy on what no longer serves us as we create exactly what we want in life.
You have the ability and power to create and LIVE the you want - even if you cannot see it yet - and my new Spiritual Mentoring Programs are designed for your progress and soul growth.
Most people have no idea that their innate power is in consciously working with
their own energy.
Everything is energy.
As you understand more about the different energies that
exist all around you, you begin to change your life, improve your manifestation
abilities, experience new levels of success, end karmic patterns, reduce
frustration and limiting belief systems, and open up to more happiness, joy, and
You become more conscious and more powerful.
You claim your role as a creator in your life.
No one else has all of your answers.
Every month, we'll tap into a specific theme and conscious choices you can apply in the Real World to elevate your energy to higher states of peace, abundance, bliss, and success with practical steps and actions that lead to real results.
The basis of our interactions will be learning, applying, and working with 12 Universal Spiritual Laws.
