My Language of Dreams

Crossing quarter
As the daylight grows each day we find ourselves closer and closer to the Summer Solstice. If there seems to be fanfare around the solstice, there is. This cross quarter day has meaning to so many cultures for so many different reasons. On this Summer Solstice I'd like us to focus our energy on the word illumination. To see the unseen, to view the hidden, and most of all to light the way.

Bursting boost
The solstice will begin Thursday June 21st at 6:07am EST in the Northern Hemisphere and it is the official start of the summer, but it is more than a mere seasonal shift. The summer, known as a time for growth, blossoms, and expansion is also a time to benefit from a boost of energy that is available to all of us. The longer daylight and usually warmer days feeds both us and the planet simultaneously. We each have a choice in what to do with summer's extra offerings as well as the trajectory of our current life paths. Begin now to prepare and be intentional and purposeful about this summer, perhaps as you have not in the past.

My walk this summer will involve standing in the sun and being seen. For most of my life I've
appreciated the stage from the wings but this summer I will, when requested, step onto the stage. I think most of my center stage apprehension has been around attention, responsibility, and the unknown. Those days are over. Bare with me as I teeter out of my proverbial shell, there may be a few hiccups. Not too worry, there will be no oversharing here.

Making more
Below are motifs and ways to mark as well and measure your progress during the summer. Often times we are not successful because we do not think we will be, so, set yourself up for all wins this coming season. And as always, use these tools as a guidepost to finding your own combination of things that help you navigate what you want and what you are willing to do to get it.

Success' secret

Just a beginning
In just a few hours (6:42am EST) the moon will enter a new lunation and yet again we will have all the opportunities in the world. The next 28.5 days present themselves to us like a gift from on high. What we do with those precious moments are completely up to us.

Just a sign
The next lunar cycle will be in the sign of Scorpio. This sign so often trivialized to heightened sexuality and strong passions has other great things to offer. Namely embracing the subtleties of life (something I am truly working to master), completing severance that is necessary to move forward, and journeying homeward to find a better understanding of self. By far the greatest thing Scorpio offers us is the opportunity to go deeper into the powers of Pluto, it's ruling planet.

Just a planet
Pluto's greatest offering to us is the ability to overcome almost anything. Be it death, disappointment, feeling cheated, or a downward spiral Pluto always presents the next new beginning. Although there are other signs that represent newness, none quite in the way Pluto does. Simply stated anything that occurs in your life can be reset. All we must do is know and properly utilize the energy Pluto holds. If you've had a threshold that has been alluding you think about making a step over it during this lunar cycle. Obstacles are made to be overcome.

Just a lens
My focus this lunar cycle is to have more personal recognition and awareness of the successes that surround me. Mine and other folk. During this lunar cycle I am practicing my Half Full lens in as many situations as I can. Pluto tells me that although things must die, they are only setting the stage for other things to come through next. For me it's really basic, in order for more to be available I must at this moment have nothing but gratitude for where I am.

Just my wants
The ball is totally in our courts. I say to you, be intentional and make magic for you and others around you this Scorpio cycle. Yes, we will be near family and friends this holiday season, but that's okay because as long as we have focus about what's important to us then what others say or do should not sway us or lead us astray. Take time in the next two days to really think about what it is you want from the Scorpio lunar cycle. Write it down, say it out loud to yourself, and even feel free to discuss it wth others. Below is one lens to use, feel free to create other lens for yourself this cycle.

I ask my guides to place on my soul the blueprint of acceptance for all that is.

Fulfilling fullness

Full not fool
This morning at approximately 1:22am we entered this Full Moon in Taurus. I'm not sure for you, but for me these last 24 hours have been intense and building minute by minute. Now that the moon has reached fullness I know I am exhaling much easier. Full moon time is a good check in time during the lunar cycle. A time of reflection, it is essential we disregard colloquial knowledge about the full moon and rather pull on this strong energy to see where we are, what we have accomplished and what we have yet to do. Three evenings in the sky the moon shows as full but the truth is what we don't see is so much more. Mark this full moon and you will be blueprinting the rest of your lunar cycle.

Venus not Taurus
This November's full moon is in Taurus (the opposite sign of the Libra lunar cycle we are within) and yes you probably think you know the earth based, strong willed, and forceful characteristics that may abound, but I say look beneath that understanding. Taurus, is only that which the planet Venus allows it to be. Venus (Taurus' ruling planet) is not only associated with beauty and love, but this sign is the domain of creativity, bounty, and manifesting ideas into reality. As usual what is best for us lies just beneath what is shiny.

Truth not fiction
I am charging myself to put just one foot in front of the other this full moon. I will be honest about fear, insecurity, and doubt, but only in order to release them. I will no longer entertain thoughts and internal dramas before I even take the next step. Meanwhile as I take each step I will be hopeful and grateful. A small and large task all at one time. I believe I am up to this. Here goes everything!

Do and do
Mark your full moon. Below is just a few ways to utilize this energy, but the most important way to gain from the full moon is decide what you want to do and then do it. There is no one prescription for power, just authenticity and being present. To us all I wish great things in the near and far future. Oh and for those of us where there is Day Light Savings Time, an extra hour of sleep this evening.

Meaning - The Builder





Know I am the Builder


Take each step with power


Great things arise when I work with others





Candle Power


At the Full Moon there is an awesome amount of power available an a way to cement that power and your works is by burning candles.  Find green candles that are safe and burn them as long and as much as you like. Fire is a tool of creation and stands in the direction of the South.  Ignite your soul towards its power this Full Moon,


Green





Renewal

Healing

Abundance

Regeneration
