Full Moon: Energy Calibrating + New Year's Day Meditation

Tomorrow, we welcome the full moon in the cardinal water sign of Cancer. This lunation arrives just one week after the super-powered Jupiter-Saturn great conjunction. Many folks are feeling wobbly, trying to integrate all the energy and awareness of the fifth dimension. For some people, it was like a shot through the heart as the portal opened. All of the new freed-up space and energy in 5D embodied living can be disorienting.

“What do I do with all this ACCESS?" you might be wondering on a subconscious level. As an empath and energy intuitive, I sense the vulnerability in the field right now, and know some feel nauseous, slightly ill, confused. It is going to take a minute, friends!

If you’ve already blasted through the portal, whenever you try to calibrate your energy field with someone who is still running old paradigm consciousness, you won’t feel good. It’s as simple as that. So don’t do it.

Become a ninja at unplugging from people, places, and situations that continue to run limited consciousness. You don’t have to be harsh or unkind; in fact, you don’t need to say a thing. Use the energy of the Cancerian crab to shell yourself; remember I mentioned in the last report that healers and empaths are forming a protective energy shell, like a space suit? These are the moments to use the shield. Gently remove yourself from the conversation. Any attempt to fix, change, convince the other – no matter who the ‘other’ is – will only perpetuate the dysfunctional, outdated bond. In short: unplug. Unplug. Unplug.

Come back to your center. Rest there. How will you know that you’ve been successful? You’ll start to feel good again. Remember that feeling good is your true, natural state.

There might be a period of detoxing and releasing habits, relationships, conditioned spaces and places in the body-mind. This is the wobble.

Some folks are learning to run a 220 volt current, but the body-mind is still at 100 and hasn’t yet upgraded to the new channel. What can you do in the meantime?

  • Keep unplugging from anyone or anything that is pulling on you
  • Get outside. Walk, run, hike, breathe. Connect to the earth.
  • Take baths, soak in a hot tub, take a hot shower.
  • Give yourself a massage. Oil is a great way to ground (especially sesame or ayurvedic oils)
  • Spend more time alone. If you don’t live alone, find a room or a corner (use a screen if you have to) to get at least 10-15 feet away from other people. You need this space to run your own clean, new vibration.
  • Go to bed earlier. Yes, even earlier 😊.
  • Don’t take it personally. This is no longer about your personal story, drama, narrative. We are now in a time of Total and Complete Trust in Unfolding. The less you take on with involvement, the easier it is to flow with ease.

Most people need more physical exercise right now, even in winter conditions. Just put your hat and shoes on, step outside and start walking. It doesn’t have to be fancy.

Most people need more time alone, too – this is one reason why some folks wake up in the middle of the night, or super early in the morn. This is because your soul is aching for time alone with you, before you talk to the kids, the partner, the world. Try not to get upset that you’re awake at odd hours. Relish the time alone with your self.

New Year’s Day Meditation and Intuited Messages for 2021

Our last group meditation on the Solstice/Great Conjunction was beautiful and helpful for the 20+ folks who attended. So, let’s do it again and work with rebalancing of frequencies.

I’m going to host another free group meditation to welcome the New Year.

Please RSVP directly to me for the special Zoom link!

Friday, January 1, 2021, 10am Pacific


As always, we will see what opens up on the call itself. Surely, we will take some time for grounding and centering, before dropping into silence together. I will be tuning into my guides and the collective, and will share some of the information and pointers received for the global shift into 2021. Also, you may ask questions and receive guidance during the call. Remember to message me with an RSVP for the Zoom link. Yes, you may repost this to share with friends and family.

Finish up what you’re able to this week, treat yourself with gentleness, and put yourself first. Remember, what is best for you IS what is best for the other. This is new for many of you, but if you start practicing radical Self-compassion, you will see that it is always what is best for the Whole.

Welcoming the miracles of ease, grace, and enjoyment on the horizon.

With love,

New Moon Eclipse in Sagittarius: Intergalactic Evolutionary Shift

we have a new moon total solar eclipse in the mutable fire sign of Sagittarius, the truth-telling seeker. I’ve been looking forward to this eclipse; it’s giving everyone the simultaneous space and energetic oomph to prepare for the next VERY BIG event on December 21, the great conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter in the sign of Aquarius.

I have some information to share with you regarding this eclipse that is bordering on airy-fairy. For shame! Still, I can’t deny it – I must come out of the closet a bit more. I’m going to use words like ascension, paradigm, and dimension. Remember, these are just words used to describe evolutionary shifts in consciousness. I don’t really want to use them either, but I’ve not yet come up with new words yet, even as a Gemini Rising and Gemini Moon. For now, bear with me and by all means, CHECK with yourself to see if what I am sharing resonates with you. If not, throw it out.

Many if not most of you will have heard some of these things already, especially over the past year. I’m particularly writing this for those folks who have been on the cusp of understanding this shift, in themselves and others, but maybe need a bit more encouragement to “go there,” and accept what is happening.

This week, with the eclipse energy permeating our very cells, we are in preparation for the upcoming 12/21 conjunction. THIS WEEK it is important to release, release, release any contracts, relationships, old belief systems, concepts that are old and outdated. You may find that you need to go within more this week. You may find that you need more quiet, space, time off. You may naturally eat cleaner foods like soups, dals, broths as you’re lightening up. Drink more water, get fresh air.

Everything and anything that you can release, wrap up, say farewell to, is great THIS WEEK.


Because on 12/21, with the conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter in Aquarius, we need to be ready to take in all of the new light-filled information and consciousness that is about to flood the planet. This is a MAJOR SHIFT for humanity. It is NOT political. I repeat: this is NOT political. Those who are in tune to this evolutionary shift reside or will reside primarily outside of the old societal landscape, on an energetic plane. We are ending the OLD – the Capricorn traditional systems, infrastructures, and calcified belief systems.

We are shifting into an intergalactic, interdimensional frame of consciousness. This is literally rewiring our light bodies, our DNA if you will. We will no longer be functioning in same perceived realm of cause and effect. Some folks call this switching from 3D into 5D – that’s fine, it’s just a label. Some folks call it moving from ego consciousness to Divine Consciousness, some say “ascending,” some folks say “awakening.” No matter what you call it – what is important, is to feel it, to live it, to trust it.

This is thrilling stuff, and it is going to take some awareness on your part, especially for the next 2-3 weeks. Some of you might feel more grounded than others. Some might feel completely “off planet.” These are the stages we can expect (and you can see where you are personally – some of you have already gone through all of them, or may be just beginning – no matter):

  • Preparation and Release of Old
  • Allowing and Trusting
  • Receiving the New Information and Energy
  • Experiencing and Embodying
  • Integrating and Stabilizing
  • Living Fully in New Dimension   

When I speak of the difference between 3D and 5D, or ego vs. divine consciousness if you will, envision before you two different railroad tracks. You might be flip-flopping back and forth between tracks. You’ll feel it start to get more and more uncomfortable, until eventually, you’ll shift into full-time 5D awareness, stabilizing on the new track.

The thing is, your body-mind has to come along with all of this. Some of the symptoms you might experience are:

-          Dizziness, vertigo

-          Pressure changes in the head

-          Kundalini activity (shaking, bouncing, quivering)

-          Sensitivity to sounds and different pitches

-          Changes in visual perception

-          Changes in taste, smell, skin sensitivity

-          Sleep disturbances (don’t fret, it won’t last)

-          These are just a few possibilities. You might find that you need to STAY WARM, you might need to cool off. You might need celibacy, or you might need more sexual activity. Listen to your body, and give it whatever it needs right now; this will help the process.

Why is this happening? I am not keen on the word why, because it invites the mind to cling and identify. The answer is – because it’s necessary, simple as that. It is because Life has a need for it. Evolution.

Is there a reason, an intention, a trajectory? Sure, we can easily make up a story around this. But stories are often traps, so hold them lightly.

Saturn and Jupiter – Grand Conjunction in Aquarius (and Meditation) 12/21

The conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter occurs at 10:20 a.m. Pacific on Monday, December 21. (The actual Winter Solstice occurs at 2:02 a.m. PT that day.) I am going to host a free 45-minute meditation on Zoom at 10am Pacific on Monday, 12/21 – please reply to this email and let me know if you would like to attend. I will leave the Zoom room open for folks to enter/leave easily and quietly, so you may stay as long or briefly as you like.

This dance of Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius is very exciting to me, a native Water Bearer who was literally born for this.

Last night I was moving a ton of kundalini energy through my system; I felt like I was channeling between earth and sky for all of humanity, moving it out, moving it out. It went on and on; I finally had to take a break, and I knew I could because I’d be telling you about this, and you can now start to move this energy through your body-mind yourself.

I had the feeling there could be an earthquake in the next few weeks. NOT TO BE AFRAID. The earthquake very well could be INTERNAL.

Allow the earth energy to come up into the body, into the root chakra.

You may also simultaneously, before this or at a different time this week, notice old energy draining out your legs, down through your feet, into the earth.

We are moving out old, calcified Capricorn energy. We need to make space for Aquarius now. (This is not a dig on Capricorn energy – eventually we’ll let go of Aquarius, too (it all goes into the Piscean noumenon of Oneness, until it will begin again)… It’s what’s here now…)

Again, allow structures, beliefs, shoulds and ought-tos, political and social constructs, responsibilities that don’t belong to you, financial paradigms etc. etc. to drain away. They are being lifted.

You may become aware of a new form of protection – like a super-sized spacesuit – which is actually more of an aura – that will shield us instantly at any time we need it. Sensitives may be able to feel this in their energy field already. A spacesuit of light that is strong and impermeable to the false, to harmful limiting beliefs.

You may find that a friendship or job relationship or partnership ends – no worries. You may also find that physical items want to be purged. You might start losing weight easily. You might finish up tasks that have been weighing on you. All of this is making space for a new reality of ease, grace, and enjoyment.

This is so not about stay-at-home orders, yet at the same time, consciousness has orchestrated this pandemic perfectly so that you have more time to retreat, to rest, to experience this shift without disturbance. Staying at home is allowing those who might not otherwise take time to stop, to stop.

We are moving into a new dimension of reality. Remember this is necessary for you to step into being an intergalactic human, and welcoming ease, grace, and enjoyment once the body-mind is stabilized and integrated on the new “track.”

Ease, grace, enjoyment. One more time: Ease, grace, enjoyment.

This is not personal. It is not political.

It is not about being special, or being woke.

It is about evolution.

Full Moon Eclipse in Gemini: Think for Yourself

"A holy person is someone who is whole; who has, as it were, reconciled his opposites." - Alan Watts

Tonight, we have a full moon lunar eclipse in the mutable air sign of Gemini, the mentally questioning and flexible Twins. Eclipses are known for big surprises and major life changes that seemingly come from nowhere. Does that make you uneasy? Well, if we’ve learned anything in 2020 it’s that anything can happen, and change is swift and unpredictable. If you can get on board with impermanence, you might be able to ride the wave and enjoy the activity. Highly recommended.

The eclipse in the sign of Gemini Twins brings up the theme of opposites, polarities: hot and cold, light and dark, beautiful and ugly, yin and yang, etc. The critical thing to understand – that is, if one wants to be free of existential suffering and angst – is that polarities are perceptions. What is hot to one, might be cool to another. When is it a warm day to an eskimo? A hot day to a desert dweller? Think about couples sharing a bed – who needs the blankets more at night? Who wants a cooler room to sleep in? Perception!

And regarding beauty and ugliness – have you noticed the range of beauty exhibited in movies made outside of the image-focused U.S.? Humans with real features, real aging, real noses, teeth, body size, etc. are considered beautiful, and not ugly. Put those real folks in a Hollywood film? Doesn’t happen so much unless they are cast as the outcast or oddball. Perception!

It is the mind that creates issues by labeling and judging appearances. To be free is to go beyond these fixed ideas, and that is where Gemini the Questioner can be a guide. In addition, Neptune in Pisces stationed and turned direct Saturday, November 29, giving us the power to dissolve our fixed perceptions and allow things to be a bit more fluid – our thinking, our timing, our dreams. Neptune brings us out of the fixed ideas of duality and allows us to rest in the vastness of Existence.

Gemini Sisters, Jeffrey Maddex

Stepping Out of the Societal Superego

A simple definition of the superego is the Inner Critic, the evaluative aspect of the ego that tells us how we “should” be doing things, to fit in and adjust to the world around us. In a large percentage of modern humans, the superego gets overblown on steroids, causing us to doubt and question our natural inclinations. Some of us spend many years in therapy and self-help realms to combat the harsh voice of the Inner Critic. However we face the superego, happiness comes when we make choices based on who we really are, sans expectations.

Did you know that societies, cultures, countries all have a collective superego? When one becomes sensitive enough to input and conditioning, the collective superego can actually be sensed in consciousness, felt like a sticky glaze over the mind. Stepping out of the societal superego is why it feels so damned good when we travel internationally, especially to cultures that are vastly different than our own. We feel the freedom, viscerally – the freedom to think, act, err, express, move, breath outside of the constant, subconscious monitoring that is ever-present in our native land.

This is why a simple Thoreauvian “Walden Pond” experiment – leave everything familiar – can be so completely vital in one’s life, for a certain period of time. It can be six hours, days, weeks, months – or six years. The point is to disconnect from what you believe is true, because it’s always been said it’s true.

“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.”
― Henry David Thoreau, Walden

For about five years in my thirties, I spent 90 percent of my time in India, solo. I wanted to disconnect from the West in order to see how I really felt about things, and to learn to think for myself. I wanted to step away from even the “good” conditioning of California – being a healthy person, a spiritual person, a successful person, a moral person – and see what I was without all of these inputs. I immersed myself in a culture that wouldn’t automatically reinforce my regular thought patterns and habits.

Was this easy? Um, no. Did I feel alone and adrift some of the time? You bet! Did I feel unhinged at times, unsure which way was up and which way was down? Absolutely.

And you know what? As a result, I gained true, lasting happiness. I am Free. Dismantling belief systems and facing existence without the constant feedback of whether I was doing it right, I fell back on the Self. I examined my value system as well, and found that it was also fluid.

How do we move out of the conditioning of right and wrong, good and bad, and all of the other judgements that we carry with us, in our bones – genes and conditioning – if we can’t do a Walden? Some folks find that meditation helps, as well as other contemplative processes, time in nature, time with animals, time off the phone and computer, and languorous time in bed with a lover (another form of meditation!). It can be helpful to read news or follow media from other sources than the usual, or people you disagree with without categorically dismissing what they’re saying before you consider their point of view first.

At this Gemini lunar eclipse, we can take the opportunity to step outside of what we are being fed mentally. With flexible minds and hearts, we can take a good look at we’re being guided internally to do, to uphold, to live. And interestingly, the more we know ourselves, the less we need others to agree with us.

In good Gemini fashion, it is a fascinating experiment to question everything. Ask your body, your mind, your heart – is this true? Is it really true for you? Or are you swallowing what you’re told? When you ask, “Why?” do you automatically hear “Because it’s good for you” or “Because it’s the right thing to do”?

Is it? Inquire within. And be free.

New Moon in Scorpio: The Shadow is Confronted

This weekend, we welcome a New Moon in the fixed water sign of Scorpio. Themes arise of transmutation, magic, depth, intensity, and alchemizing the personal and collective shadow. This is the weekend of Kali Puja – celebrating the wrathful goddess and destroyer of illusion and egoic attachments. In addition, it is Diwali – the Festival of Light, bringing gifts! Mars stations direct after a long retrograde – still in Aries until January, confronting everyone with everything imaginable. And, last but not least – this week's conjunction of Jupiter and Pluto (ruler of Scorpio), just about puts us all into hyperspace!

What to do, Kathmandu?

We arise and shine, baby. When we face the shadow, we are no longer entrapped. Take a look at what is all up in your business, and accept everything. Truly everything. That which we dismiss as unpalatable, unacceptable, disgusting, unjust, unfair, unrighteous – well, those are exactly the things that we get to eat for lunch, and transform into nectar, ambrosia, amrita.

Such is the power of the Goddess Maa Kali. Remember: the role of the Divine Feminine is not to make YOU feel comfortable. Her role is to keep the balance of the universe.

Let’s examine this week’s impactful Jupiter/Pluto conjunction, archetypally. Jupiter is Zeus, ruler of Olympus and God of the Skies, and Pluto is Hades, God of the Underworld. Zeus and Hades are brothers (along with Neptune-Poseidon, but he's smartly sitting this one out, resting in the ocean of Piscean oneness). Think Cain and Abel. Karmic siblings. Both are necessary in the cosmic play.

The righteous Olympians, ruled by Zeus, truly despised Hades, lord of the underworld, and all he represented. They wanted to keep things looking good, kosher, organized, and righteous - they wanted him put away and out of sight, out of mind. But this doesn't work in the long haul, and that's what this week's meeting of Jupiter and Pluto is bringing to the fore.

We cannot disregard Hades-Pluto and lock him in the basement forever. Same goes for the absolutely despicable things that we try to deny or annihilate both within and outside of ourselves. It will seep up through the cracks, eventually.

Facing the Shadow

Now is the time when you need to ask yourself, can you hold the tension of opposites in your own soul? Can you experience true joy and elation and celebration in your heart, without being in opposition to something, whether a politician or a personality or part of self?

On the other side, can you feel pain, grief, powerlessness or put-upon-ness, and not polarize or make another suffer because you yourself have suffered?

Until we begin looking at our own individual shadows, we will have need to externalize it in the form of a despised leader or marginalized group or any easy target. We will continue to make them a repository of Hades, pointing fingers and doing our best to banish them to the underworld.

Ask yourself, what is your worst? What do you find absolutely unacceptable in yourself? This is where the real work begins. Are you jealous or envious of others? Do you crush others (or attempt to) in order to gain (false) power? Do you posture or politic with others in order to gain ground? To be liked? To manipulate outcomes?

In Truth, there is no elimination of any part of Nature.

From the perspective of the Absolute, and of Unconditional Peace, you are not separate. You are Life Itself. Face the Self as the Self, and it is easy to see there are zero problems in Reality.

Reality is Love, defined here as total acceptance. Zero resistance to What Is. No separateness from other, no opposition.

If you are celebrating some favorable outcome or 'win' this weekend, by all means dance in the streets, pop the champagne, and enjoy your victories. And if you want the joy to go all the way to your bones, be sure you check to see if you can LOVE that which you HATE.

Can’t stomach it? The very evil you are pointing a finger to is seething, boiling underneath your own ego.

That which you vilify will persist. That which you accept as part of the cosmic play will no longer make even a tiny speck of dust on the tabula rasa of an awakened mind.

The idea of being “just” or “correct” keeps one trapped in the layers and folds of dualistic thinking, a world wherein things must look a certain way in order for it to be acceptable, palatable, correct.

Love everything, and see there never was an issue to begin with.

So, as we head into this Scorpionic weekend, domain of the Serpent Eagle, the phoenix rising from the ashes, this Diwali-Kali Puji be sure to embrace the transformation of dark into light, through the very force of Love and clear seeing. See that the Love was there all along. For it is the Truth. It is What Is.

Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”

~ Rumi
