Life’s going to get interesting folks… Pluto Retrograde in April 2013

Pluto goes retrograeYesterday, Pluto went retrograde. But before we groan too much about that, I would like to make an observation about Pluto and those people who have an interest in the occult, the healing arts or in mysticism. For many in this cross-section of humanity, what is of interest here is the cycle of death/rebirth. Somewhere in our past we came to see that this cycle is part of everything and really is where all the fun happens 🙂 (If you know what I mean *wink*)


Change, renewal, and the beautiful opportunities that come out of a good blast of understanding are the witch/mystic/healer’s bread and butter. And we also know it is Pluto who rules this process. Pluto’s role in the zodiac is that of a slowly (and I mean very slowly) moving liberator. It moves into an area and initiates a comprehensive process of regeneration for everything, large or small, in the area. On the first pass through, this process is felt as death or great tumultuous loss. When Pluto goes retrograde it backs up over the same area.  This time,  Pluto’s influence feels like a potent revitalization as the poorly functioning elements of the system have already kicked the bucket which means new life is being breathed into the freshly open spaces. This is akin to using an aerator on your lawn. From one perspective, you are pulling out plugs of living tissue, but from another perspective, you are providing space for things to grow.


When Pluto goes direct again, and crosses the area for the last time, its healing powers invigorate the new installed system and the new mechanisms now spring forward in beautiful rebalanced harmony, or said another way: a new life free from the old, sick, or broken elements of the pre-existing system.


So fellow mystics, with Pluto going retrograde, I can hear the healers from around the world breathing a sigh of relief. They are saying, “wonderful, the death part is over… let the rebirth begin.”


So scry into Pluto’s work in your life. Look for what is being reborn.  know that you made it through the tunnel and the light at the end… it is a phoenix not a train 🙂

Are You Done Yet?


We are moving into spring and that antsy feeling that is is time to make changes is getting louder… I know you know which voice I am talking about.

It sounds a lot like:

  • I should slow down but I don’t know how
  • My stress keep affecting my physical health and causing me anxiety
  • My pent up anger or rage hasn’t gone away yet, no matter what I have tried

You might notice that these are leading to fractured relationships that leave everyone feeling unsupported, stranded, and with no way out. These very real cycles of pain, abandonment, and denial foster our addictions to food, alcohol and destructive relationships.

Gah!!  Where is our joy and the end of suffering?!

Spiritual direction  stops the Merry-Go-Round.  The real life value you get will stimulate:

  • Ease of day to day growing pains as you develop mad negotiating skills
  • A deepened relationship with your body, your loved ones and your life’s purpose
  • An increased capacity for love,  joy and intimacy

Ready to not be stressed. Anymore.

Imagine what life might look like if these were the dynamics instead of pain?

Anyone can get to that place… from anywhere.  Period. The trick is to start heading that direction.  Say yes where you normally say no to yourself. It’s new moon, and it’s Spring.  Your gut knows that this is the time you have been waiting for, that open window of opportunity to open up your life and begin anew! Humanity is following the same inner rhythm that the natural world does, and your divine discontent is your turkey timer gone off!

We know you are worth it, and so do you!
