Did you think things in this world were just a bit crazy? Well darlings, we're JUST getting started!
We have two eclipses coming up in February that are going to shake-shake-shake up the energy fields that need to be changed - ready or not!
So here is your heads up about what the month holds for us as we enter the first eclipse season of 2017:
~ Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on February 9th at 23 degrees Leo
~ New Moon Solar Eclipse on February 26th at 8 degrees Pisces
When a Lunar Eclipse happens BEFORE a Solar Eclipse, we tend to have bigger emotions that are stirred up first. The Moon is showing us our feelings and unconscious selves; she is revealing what needs to be exposed, illuminated, and seen in the light.
The Lunar Eclipse in Leo is a Call to the Heart and a return to what needs to be proudly expressed. Courage is highlighted, although the potential for egoism is strong. This eclipse is ruled by the Sun, so we have a strong need to balance What I Give (Aquarius) and What I Receive (Leo). There is a fabulous, energizing Grand Trine in Fire with this Lunar Eclipse that will spur you UP to higher levels of inspiration, motivation, creativity, personal expression, and a true belief in who you are now. (I'll be sharing more about this energy around February 9th.)
Then, when the Solar Eclipse occurs two weeks later, we have the opportunity to consciously integrate what we've learned about ourselves so we can use it constructively and with intention.
The Solar Eclipse in Pisces is a big ending point, as it is the final zodiac sign that returns us to compassion, forgiveness, and letting go. We will say goodbye to some part of our experience or ourselves to make way for the new parts that are coming in. This is a very spiritual Solar Eclipse that reminds us we are on a grand adventure and everything is temporary. Allow what is complete to leave and continue to open up to more of your soul's energy along the way. Higher downloads will be available to you in March as you continue to trust and believe. (I'll be sharing more about this energy before February 16th.)
So there is your roadmap for what February will be bringing our way. It is the first grand energy change of the year, and is meant to catapult a part of your energy field OPEN while trusting that it is time to leave part of your story behind.
And onward we go!

We had guests visiting us here in sunny, warm Florida for the past 2 weeks, and they boarded a plane this morning to go home. I honestly, seriously, for the life of me have no idea how 2 weeks had already passed.
How did time go by that quickly?
WHERE did it go?
This is one of the energy signatures of 2017. Time will not be ‘time’ as we have known it because we have transitioned to a different energy field of unlimited potentials. It will feel unreal simply because it is not the ‘real’ that we may have been used to experiencing our daily lives.
When we are moving through higher paradigms, we shift out of limitations of the time/space continuum and enter a never-ending vastness of potentials. That is also why manifesting happens so quickly, and why you have to stay CLEAR in your intentions and what you WANT. Or else you'll get swept away into a current of unknowns until you do know.
Yet as time continues to move quickly, you could feel physically slow, tired, or off-pace right about now. Have a lot of people been sick around you, or perhaps you caught something? The flu has been a real doozy this winter, wiping people out for weeks. What's up with that? Well Mars is in Pisces at the final degrees of the zodiac, returning home after a 2 year adventure that began in March 2015. Mars in Pisces is the warrior who must retreat and prepare for the next journey. Mars rules the body and physical self; Pisces is collective illnesses. He is one tired dude as he moves through the 28 and 29 degrees of Pisces and may feel exceptionally tired or worn out. He needs more rest than normal, and requires downtime to reflect and intuit all that he has learned. Meditation, quiet time, and spiritual connections are strongly supported.
Trust your body’s messages right now. Make time to rest or go slower, at least until Sunday. Mars enters Aries on January 29, and THEN it will be time to set off on new beginnings as the Universe swoops in with a brand new energy cycle.
The New Moon in Aquarius on January 28 is the first one of the year, signaling that it is REALLY time to start those New Year’s intentions and get them fired up with greater Universal support. The New Moon is at 8 degrees Aquarius, when the Sun and the Moon are both lined up at the same point in the cosmos; the Feminine and Masculine are united. This New Moon has a wonderful energy signature that incites pushing boundaries and honoring your Self, even if that felt uncomfortable in the past.
The Universe is asking you to be forward-thinking, revolutionary, and mentally tough. Aquarius is a fixed air sign that takes us to new places with our ideas and pushes us to think outside of the box; in fact, destroy the box completely! Aquarius is also related to scientists, rebellion, astrology, sci-fi, technology advancements, and the collective energy field. Aquarius is the signature of what your vision is for the collective and how you can give something back to support others. How can you contribute to the whole?
In cosmic terms, 2017 is just getting started with this zesty New Moon and Mars’s entry into Aries on Sunday. It is time to advance to a higher place in your energy field that is mentally strong, inclusive, and inspires you with forward action that is best for your soul’s growth. Only you know what that is. And if you do not know, you now have greater potential for clarity and action.
Please make the most of what is happening within you and around you. This is a rare time of forward energy as all of the planets are still moving ahead until February 6, when Jupiter goes retrograde in Libra.
Ask for what you need.
Stay open to possibilities.
Trust that what shows up is meant for you.
Believe in yourself on a daily basis.
Take actions, even small steps, towards what your heart and mind want most.
It is time to expand – and we know how fast time is moving and supporting us now to do it.

Buckle up, buttercups.
The fast moving energies of 2017 are officially rollin' in, and time is going to go faster than you thought possible!
I get the visual of a huge new overlay of 5D energies pouring down over 3D energies, invigorating us with fresh cosmic downloads that are assisting us all in raising our individual vibrations in order to raise the collective vibration. We have entered a new paradigm of faster moving energies to support our ascension, growth, healing, expansion, and manifesting abilities.
Have you been feeling it or seeing it in your world? These are the higher 5D energies that are lifting us UP and OUT of the typical 3D timelines and placing us in the dimension of NO time = things just show up, in an instant!
Energies are lining up with our intentions LIKE THAT with very little time to waste. We are being given a cosmic "love push" to act and say YES and go for it and trust what we cannot see.
In spiritual circles, we talk about this stuff a lot. We say "set your intentions" and "get ready to manifest" and "be grateful in advance." Well now all of that is more real than ever before because global energies are faster for those of us who are choosing to participate in this paradigm.
It's time to walk the talk and manifest like a maniac.
Remember, not everyone chooses to move forward or say YES. Do not expect that, or you'll be disappointed. Your power is in YOUR choices and where you direct YOUR energies; that's all yours to claim and play with. It is during these fast moving times that we need to also be accepting and DETACH from expectations of others.
Instead, continue on with what you're ready to manifest and experience now in all areas of your life. It can be THAT good if you allow it.
And you know what this is for you. You really do. It's something important to you, and the energies are available to everyone. The Universe does not play favorites. And it's up to you to let it be easy when it shows up! But you may have become accustomed to ignoring it or pushing it down, and now that sweet little "cosmic love push" is asking you to claim the higher frequencies that are here to assist you in some manner.
Astrologically, Uranus in Aries and Saturn in Sagittarius are making a harmonious trine that is rare, exciting, and supportive of long-term growth. These two power planets are providing fire, motivation, and inspiration for forward movement, which might have felt stalled out in recent years.
Well now it is time, says the cosmos.
Then Jupiter in Libra brings in the abundance, growth, wisdom, and partnership opportunities that take it up a notch with JOY. Collaborating with others and equal relationships will be the keys to good news, help, and grace.
These three planets are going to be playing nicely together throughout the year.
By the end of January, Mars is going to be in Aries, which is like turning a bonfire into a roarin' BLAZE of fire. The momentum will pick up and you may be surprised by how busy life becomes.
Consider this your heads up!
So your job right now is to stay clear in your intentions.
Be ready to go for "it" and say YES to what - or who - shows up.
Make time to relax as needed.
Keep moving forward.
Smile and ENJOY.

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:
- Learn why each of us decides to experience such challenges as illness, the death of a loved one, and accidents. Other challenges explored from the perspective of pre-birth planning include being the parent of a handicapped child, deafness, blindness, drug addiction, and alcoholism.
- Understand how you as a soul create your life blueprint
- Consciously use your challenges to foster spiritual growth
- Understand that the people in your life, including your parents and children, are there at your request, motivated by their love for you to play roles that you scripted
- Replace anger, guilt, and blame with forgiveness, acceptance, and peace
- Deepen your appreciation of and gratitude for life as a soul-expanding, evolutionary process
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:
- Discover how to successfully “hack into” the nonverbal universal language of synchronicities and number patterns
- See how the Indigo, Crystal, and Rainbow Children are the precursors to our evolutionary “upgrade”
- Learn the symptoms of shifting into a higher frequency
- Understand how the chakra centers are the hub for your extrasensory psychic system
- Recognize that birthmarks are signs of past-life traumas
- Learn how to prepare yourself to welcome visitors from other star systems
Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of this book with the intention of sharing a review with you. The thoughts here are my own and I do not receive any compensation based on whether or not you purchase a copy. Although I hope you do - because it's amazing!

"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!
