DEATH for October 2012

The veils between the worlds thin in the month of October. Nature sheds its old layers and prepares to go within for the
cold winter months ahead. As this shift in nature occurs our subconscious mind also sheds its worn out thoughts, and we become empty for this time.
Through death comes life. Right now you are walking the path between the worlds. Stay empty, and leave your old self behind.
Visualize your spine as a pillar of light. Keep your spine straight so that the new energies evolving within and without will be able to heal you.
Like a snake your old body will shed off and a new one will create from within. Experiment with these four sacred keys 1.every day drink large
amounts of water througout the day 2. listen to nature sounds 3. drink tea from a plant you pick leaves from. 4. Focus on the pillar of light inside you.
You will become more connected to the other realms and the gateway through the veils will become more clear as your awareness
is heightened. Sustain a relationship with the keys and you will continue to ascend.

Join us in Seattle at the SPICE BOX (Skin Deep Dance Studio) for this art & performance event! This month featured artists are An-Magrith Erlandsen & Kook Teflon, with performances by Magi, Amazon Heart and various others (TBA)!!
Keep up with us on our facebook event page:
All funds raised will go towards the SEEDS program!
The Program is 25 teen girls (13-18 yrs old) in the Seattle community for one academic year of after-school classes, 1 1/2 hours each, three times per week. They are taught the elements of American Tribal Style dance, a rich, diverse, artistic, cultural dance form that spans the regions of India, the Middle East, North Africa and Spain and its expression through the varied and complex music of these same cultures. The girls also participate in talking circles and journal writing during which they discuss issues affecting them. Each girl identifies a personal goal that she would like to achieve during the course of the program. Guest speakers cover a wide range of topics from nutrition and body awareness to financial education, etc. Many successful women of various fields that are of particular interest to the girls, address the girls each week. There are four Student Salons (student performances) each session. Entrance into the program does not depend on demonstrated talent, standard beauty, or ability to pay the fees the program would require.
SUPPORT this wonderful enriching program and enjoy fine art and performance art at the same time!

The Hierophant for July 2012

The Hierophant rears his patriarichal head this July to remind us of our commitments, obligations and responsibilities
in regards to home, family and the environment. Now is not the time to let all your cares fly to the wind, despite the summer vacation.
In fact, you are more committed to your responsibilities more than ever because others are relying on you! Choices you make
these coming weeks could make or break you in other people's eyes, and this is why it is good to draw on the Hierophant.
The Hierophant reminds us of our loyalties, our long reaching goals, and to continue on the path towards them. However, this path
DOES NOT have to be straightn and narrow. Following your goals with focus and responsibility will unleash energies about you that will
precipitate unforeseen and most welcome changes. Advancement in insight, maturity and clear sense will be yours and you will be a step
above the herd as you stay strong in your integrity and service to those in your sphere of life, and to yourself.
Check out my new page dedicated to the Tarot card of the month!

The Sun for June 2012

The Sun follows the moon into the month of June. Midsommer's eve celebrates the longest day of the year on the 21st.
This is a time of revelation and clarity, as the sun lights up the landscape revealing the death of winter's breakdown.
What was unknown last month in the time of the moon is now open for contemplation.
The dark side is revealed, showing its stolid face looking back. What is true and real will dissipate all that is inessential.
Focus, spiritual support and direction from the Will is revealed. The child like wonder of the Sun, and its incarnation
remind us of the wheel of life. Burn away the darkness of the night with a fire for her in celebration. Let it burn all night
to remember there is always light in the darkness, and through darkness comes forth the light. It is your Will.

The Moon for May 2012

The "Super Moon" of the first weekend in May calls for a deep look at the meaning of The Moon in the Tarot.
A card of mystery and the unknown it positions itself as a wild card in a tarot spread. Questions will not be answered
for the answer is "unknown at this time". A hint of the dark side, spiritual misgivings and the hidden world come to mind.
The Moonalso reflects the deep subconscious, and things which were once hidden are bubbeling to the surface.
Depression, schizophrenia and disorientation may be the result if not acknowledged and dealt with correctly.
The results of a succesful journey through the dark side of the moon is enlightenment, fulfillment and renewed strength of charachter.
Rest assured The Sun follows the moon. There will be light at the end of the tunnel. On another level The Moon is a mystical card.
A time when the veilsbetween this world and the other are thin, and psychic revelation is clear and concise.
Your intuitive faculties are highly in tune.It is a fruitful time of inner reflection and accomplishing goals in your "Art"; painting, music, writing etc., and also a timeto discover your art and your soul's purpose outside of the normal everyday. It is a time to just trust the process and dive into the waters of your soul and discover who you really are.

Mercury moves out of retrograde this month on April 13th which means this will take a lot of stress off crucial decisions. This means we
are able to balance our energies harmoniously for the first time since January, only now we have renewed vigor and strength
evolving from the hardships of the retrograde pattern. Temperance allows us to center and take an evolutionary step towards healing
of our life and our spiritual selves. To make something out of nothing is the message of Temperance, to create something new such as
a work of art, and the Will of Art takes center stage. Gaia Earth speaks through her children, and Her will becomes truth.
Open up to Spring and the rebirth of all that is good and needful to bring the world back to forward evolution as we cut ties with
the past. Past bonds that are non essential and soul suppressive will cease to exist allowing the new light of life to bloom.

Strength for Feb 2012

This is the year of awakening the power of the Goddess within. It is about owning a strong inner conviction and expressing the dignity
that accompanies such strength of character. Women in all walks of life, all around us, child and adult will be owning this new yet ancient
wisdom of being. There will be subtle and sometimes drastic changes to the environment as a result of this power surge. Be aware, there
is no turning back once the dark glasses have been removed. Your clarity of vision will be so ecstatic you do not want to put the dark
glasses on again. You realize you own yourself, and the world around you is your oyster. Your wishes will come true if you want.
You will begin to transform this month into your true self. Prepare to meet your highest goals and aspirations. Love is all around you,
and your guides are nearer than they've ever been before. Listen, realize and act, do not hold back anymore.
