Gentle and Blue




I've licked the salt, the bitter, the sweet
of every encounter, of passion, of heat

Your riotous color, your fragrance, your taste
have thrilled my senses beyond all haste

In your beauty, I've known the how
of timeless bliss, this moment of now

- from Earth Poem by Michael Jackson


Michael Jackson's ode to the Earth stirs the soul. I can't think of a more fitting way to celebrate Earth Day than to share it.

My heart overflows today with love and gratitude for the gift of living on this sacred planet, and for the privilege of sharing the journey with you.

A blessed Beltane Earth season to all.

Being the Wave



"I am the spiritual impulse itself - an evolutionary intuition embedded within the sacred unfolding of the cosmos." - Pierre Teihard de Chardin


Everything changes. All the time.

Stars die. Galaxies are born.

A human embryo gestates. The fetus becomes a baby, then a child. The child matures to adulthood, ripening with age.

New life emerges from the womb of winter. Caterpillars turn into butterflies.

Civilizations rise and fall. New species appear. Some vanish. Seasons turn.

Life is cyclical, an evolutionary unfolding. Life is consciousness. Consciousness is love.

As vast cycles of time come to an end through 2012 and beyond, love promises a new beginning.

My spirit has anticipated this moment for millennia. Has yours? My soul chose eons ago to be incarnated here, now. I wanted to experience the transition to the next world age - to see, to feel, to taste this awakening.

As we know all too well by now, this transition is not without pain. Transformation often means struggle. The creative force pulsing through the cosmos is necessarily destructive. The passing away of the old makes way for the new.

We humans tend to resist change, yet the persistent unfolding of life yields infinite gifts. Without tasting sorrow, would we recognize bliss?


Lunar festivals

Celestial and Earth energies are building again. More changes are on the way. Can you feel it?

This weekend's Full Moon initiates a wave of evolutionary potential that culminates in an explosive eclipse series in June and July. Now's the time to prepare on all levels.

In evolutionary terms, whatever has outlived its usefulness is on the way out. The process is physical, yes, and also mental, emotional and spiritual.

What's dying within you? How are your values and beliefs shifting? Is it time to release thoughts, conditioning, patterns or habits that no longer serve your evolution? Are you living your purpose?

All full moons illuminate what's been held in the subconscious. With the influence of Neptune and Chiron transiting Pisces, the next three lunations carry enormous potential for deep inner healing and expanded awareness.

Tonight's opposition of the Sun and Moon in Aries-Libra is the first of three spring lunar festivals in esoteric tradition. This one is the Festival of the Christ and coincides with Easter and Passover. The alignment is exact at 10:44 PM Eastern.

In May, we'll have the Festival of the Buddha, a holy day celebrated as Wesak in Buddhist tradition. The energies are building in a giant crescendo toward a total lunar eclipse in June, which is also the full moon Festival of Humanity.

There are two other eclipses coming up, too. Partial solar eclipses will happen on June 1 and July 1, with the Solstice in between.

Meanwhile, the Mayan Ninth Wave is pulsing in nine- and 18-day rhythms. The evolution of consciousness is accelerating toward a culmination in late October.

Our experiences on this journey will not be ordinary.

From economic reconfiguration to climate change, spiritual awakening to social revolution, the changes are coming faster and faster. How do we deal with all this?


Being the wave

Earlier this year, it felt like the evolutionary waves were forming off in the distance, flowing toward us. Waves of change seemed to be somehow separate from "us" as souls embodied on Earth. The goal was to ride the wave.

With each passing day, it's become clearer that the key to navigating the acceleration of change is to merge with the force of creation - to become the wave.

There's no real secret to merging with the cosmos. We're already embedded within it. This is not a "doing" so much as a remembering that we are one with the divine unfolding. There's infinite grace and power in this way of being.

While we can experience divine consciousness any moment of any day, the possibility is enhanced during times of significant planetary alignments. Celebration, ritual, prayer and creative intent will be amplified during these upcoming configurations:

May 1-5 is the cross-quarter gateway of Beltane in the northern hemisphere (Samhain south of the equator). This year, the Taurus New Moon falls within this gateway, on May 2/3, depending on your time zone.

The Full Moon in Scorpio-Taurus (Wesak) is May 17 at 7:09 AM Eastern. (The Full Moon rises on May 16 for most readers.)

On June 1, a new moon partial eclipse in Gemini is exact at 4:03 PM Eastern. The power-packed total lunar eclipse in Sagittarius-Gemini on June 15 is conjunct Galactic Center. The lunation is exact at 4:14 PM Eastern.

The Solstice on June 21 is the apex of the solar year in the northern hemisphere. South of the equator, it's winter and the shortest day of the year.

The grand finale of the eclipse series arrives July 1, when the Sun and Moon meet for a partial solar eclipse in Cancer, conjunct the great star Sirius. Our lives are likely to look vastly different by July than they do today.

Details and additional alignments are outlined in my 2011 Astro Forecast mp3 and PDF (links below).


What to expect

Throughout this period, we'll notice more acutely the interplay of darkness and light. The differences between seeming polarities (for example, night-day, masculine-feminine, wealth-poverty, love-hate) grow more striking before ultimately resolving into unity. The illusion of separation will grow more intense as the truth of oneness emerges.

On a large scale and personally, we'll see more chaos and destruction, endings and new beginnings.

Everyone will experience these shifts differently. As relationships or jobs dissolve, new opportunities arise. You or your loved ones might experience accidents, illness, fatigue, agitation or even the sudden awakening of spiritual gifts like clairvoyance, clairaudience or prophetic dreams. Emotions run high. Addictions try to get a footing. Miracles happen more often.

How do we navigate this next round of changes gracefully?

Every day, attune to the flow of creation.

In the northern hemisphere, it's spring and we're celebrating new life, the transcendence of the human spirit. The sun warms our skin in this season of rebirth and renewal. In the southern hemisphere, it's fall, a time to count our blessings and reap the harvest of the solar year.

The change of seasons is a perfect time to liquidate personal belongings, donating unused items to those in need. Spring and fall are also traditional times for a full-body cleanse.

Have you been tending to your body, mind and spirit? What helps you feel supported on all levels? Take a careful look at your habits, and your budget. Eliminate the frivolous. Get back to basics. Make caring for yourself and your loved ones a priority.

Grounding and centering are essential. Eat fresh, unprocessed foods, especially root vegetables and dark, leafy greens. Mother Earth provides the sustenance we need in these times, especially fruits, vegetables and grains. Medicinal herbs, healing teas, essential oils, flower and gem essences also support us on the journey.

Additional tips for navigating the shift are included in my 2011 Astro Forecast mp3 and PDF (links below).

During times of potent planetary alignment, the effects of our thoughts, intent and action go quantum. Meditate and give thanks. Offer a simple prayer for your loved ones, all beings and the Earth. Offer your hands, your heart and your mind in service.

Be the wave. Be love.

In the Garden


Hope and renewal dawn with today's New Moon.

What are you planting in your garden this spring?

The seeds of intention are ultra-potent today. A cycle begins that carries us through the three great lunar festivals of the Christ, the Buddha and humanity, and culminating in three eclipses in June/July.

We'll have more to share when my new website and blog premiere this week.

Namaste.

What If?


"There is no birth of consciousness without pain." - C.G. Jung

As chaotic events in Japan, the Middle East and elsewhere ripple around the world, it's easy to get caught up in panic and fear. While the Internet is a brilliant medium for conveying information, there's a very real danger of data overload leading to anxiety and exhaustion.

Right now there seems to be some apprehension about the planetary alignments coming up this weekend. Articles and video clips are circulating about the so-called "supermoon" on Saturday causing earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and extreme weather. Others say Japan's 8.9-magnitude earthquake and resulting tsunami on March 11 were linked to the supermoon. The facts suggest otherwise.

It's true that the Moon's perigree (closest point) with the Earth coincides with the Full Moon on Saturday, March 19. The (unproven) theory is that the gravitational pull of the Moon at lunar perigree will cause extreme weather and seismic activity on Earth. Although some of the predictions I've seen are compelling, scientists say no, that's not true (see links below).


March 18-20 Power Portal

Astrologically, this weekend's Full Moon occurs in the signs of Virgo and Pisces. The Moon in Virgo represents service to the collective. The Sun in Pisces hints of the possibility of spiritual mastery. Virgo also has to do with discernment. And Pisces is associated with the waters of the Earth.

For many, the Full Moon will rise on Friday night, March 18. The alignment will be exact at 2:10 PM Eastern on Saturday, March 19.

The Equinox - the time of year when day and night are of equal length - helps us find balance. This lasts about three days, March 19-21. In the northern hemisphere, we pause to celebrate new beginnings in springtime. South of the equator, we gather the bounty of the harvest and begin to prepare for winter.

This year, the planetary configurations surrounding the Equinox are elegant in their design with the largest Full Moon of the year coinciding with the equinoctal turning of the seasons.

A rare alignment of the Sun with the planet Uranus at the Equinox point (0 Aries) adds the element of surprise to the Full Moon-Equinox party. The alignment is exact at 7:21 PM Eastern on Sunday, March 20. An influx of insight, ingenuity and inspiration flows through this portal. This bubbly, playful configuration is brimming with potential and creativity. It's a time to download solutions.

The Full Moon is a point of balance created by the opposition of the Sun and Moon with Earth in the middle. When it reaches full this weekend, the Moon will be closer to the Earth than at any other time since 1993, so it will appear larger on the horizon both rising and setting.

There's beauty and mystery in that, and an opportunity to radiate our hearts' intentions around the world and throughout time and space. The same with the Equinox. Both alignments have to do with balance, symmetry and natural rhythms.

As the lunar and solar cycles synchronize, the opportunity to bring love, peace and healing to the Earth and all beings is greatly magnified. The power of intent, both personally and collectively, goes quantum through this portal.



Ninth Wave Update

According to Mayan calendar scholar Carl Johan Calleman, the ninth and final underworld of the sacred calendar was initiated March 9. I've been waiting eons for this moment, so I packed a lunch and spent the day in prayer and celebration at Kasha-Katuwe (Tent Rocks), a sacred site on public lands near the Cochiti Pueblo in northern New Mexico.

The warm mid-day Sun glistened on sandstone spires above as I passed through chilly slot canyons then hiked up the mesa. With each step I took toward the sky, I felt the enormity of our individual and collective ascension through the 2012 portal and beyond.

Traversing the rocky desert path required preparation, groundedness, peseverence and a bit of courage. The gifts awaiting were well worth the effort.

Bliss flowed through my veins as I ascended the mesa. Each time I reached a plateau on the trail, I stopped to center and take in the landscape that enveloped and nourished my soul.

As I walked, I prayed that the coming changes will be mitigated, that we will embrace our divinity as the great cycle shift unfolds on Earth. On top of the mesa, I made an offering of blue corn with my prayers, sat for a bit, then retraced my steps, downward this time.



I'll never forget the immeasurable bliss of March 9 and the day that followed. On Friday, March 11, cold reality set in. The raw emotion of Japan's crisis is now emblazoned in our consciousness. It is the contrast in these two experiences that, for me, dramatizes the Ninth Wave and galvanizes my lifelong determination to contribute to the evolution of consciousness on Earth.

Are the Ninth Wave initiation on March 9 and the 8.9-magnitude earthquake and tsunami in Japan related? Carl Calleman says yes. He has posted a fascinating and well documented article about this relationship on his website (link below). Carl says there is no historical evidence that the March 11 earthshift in Japan will set off a series of even more devastating events. Amid the chaos, there's some comfort in that.


Stepping up

Power and discernment go hand in hand as we successfully navigate the increasing intensity of this next level of consciousness evolution on Earth.

The dramatic events of recent days still the soul. In quiet reflection, truth is inescapable. At this critical juncture in Earth's history, we must be aware and choose responsibly. Each thought, each action, becomes momentous.

As we find ways to manage ourselves in these times, we need a strong connection with both the spiritual and physical realms in order to maintain balance. Above all, we need each other.

As I tune in with the energies and hear from people around the world, I keep coming back to the same core message: We never encounter a greater challenge than we can handle. Beyond the death and destruction, the pain and the suffering, lies opportunity. And great hope. Miracles stand side by side with tragedy.

Back in December, I wrote in my 2011 Astro Forecast: "Structures, forms and institutions are breaking down. In 2011, we’re reorganizing at a higher level or changing the patterns altogether and building something new. During the reconfiguration, we become aware of the infinite possibilities of the quantum field. We’re creating a new paradigm, and we have the insight, tools and technology to do it."

The December-January eclipse series that initiated the new year was a beginning. March 9 was a beginning. The Equinox is a beginning. The next three Full Moons are lunar festivals observed in esoteric and religious traditions and carry enormous potential for healing and progressive change.


Possibilities

Let's play what if.

What if last week's disastrous Japan earthquake, resulting tsunamis and now potential nuclear meltdown are a cosmic wake-up call to alert us to imbalances that must be addressed if we are to evolve as a species on planet Earth?

What if quantum physics is true, and how we respond as a people will affect the outcome of such a perilous situation?

What if the Full Moon alignment followed by the Equinox this weekend supercharges our prayers and intention, and allows the healing frequencies of divine love to transform the hearts and minds of all beings, and Mother Earth herself?

What if we, the Earth, the Moon, other nearby planets and their moons, the countless stars and planets in the heavens are all part of a divine dance orchestrated in a purposeful way to facilitate a quantum evolution of consciousness?

What if we're infinitely more powerful than we believe ourselves to be, and this is the exact moment we're intended to awaken to our highest potential?

What if, in the midst of chaos, we all take a deep breath and tune in to the voice of wisdom within?

It's Time


"What has been hidden is revealed."


Today the world is reeling in the wake of Friday's devastating 8.9-magnitude earthquake and resulting tsunamis in Japan. Bone-chilling images of destruction plaster the media and Internet. An earthquake-related explosion rocked a nearby nuclear power plant earlier today. A partial meltdown is now possible in at least one of Japan's five nuclear reactors.

Meanwhile, a wave of revolution continues to spread through the Middle East.

Enormous batches of birds and fish have been dying suddenly all over the world, including millions of poisoned sardines found dead in a marina in southern California last week.

Oil from last year's disastrous leak in the Gulf of Mexico was recently discovered choking life at the bottom of the ocean.

Extreme weather and climate change are far too obvious to ignore.

How can you not sensationalize these events? Explanations and interpretations tend toward religious fervor, political or new age fanaticism.

What's really going on?



An apocalypse?

I'd been inexplicably wracked with emotion from the moment I woke up at 5 a.m. Friday. When I finally turned on my laptop and saw the news, I understood why. I sobbed. The dreams I've had since childhood of devastating Earth changes were coming alive again. Tears washed away pain that was not mine.

I called my mother in Ohio. She had just heard from her brother, whose son - my cousin - is stationed at a U.S. Army base in Japan. He and his wife in Tokyo were okay. Untold others are not so fortunate.

Mom's words echoed what must be on the minds and in the hearts of anyone who's paying attention these days. "What is this, the Apocalypse?"

Actually, yes.

Although it has been taken to mean the end of the world through cataclysm, the word "apocalypse" is derived from Latin and Greek and means "what has been hidden is revealed" or "lifting of the veil."

Earth changes are a natural process of transformation that happens in cycles over vast periods of time. God isn't punishing anyone. Geologic, evolutionary forces are at work.

Massive changes occur over time, shaping the world the way we know it today. This is perfectly normal. Today, though, the human factor is the wild card. Never before have there been 7 billion people on the planet during such an intense round of changes.

Apocalyptic events tear holes in the fabric of our collective consciousness, allowing higher frequencies of spiritual energy to flood the Earth. In our current reality, waves of destruction, pain and suffering accompany the incoming frequencies.

If you're sensitive to energy fluctuations, you've probably been feeling tired or lethargic, restless, agitated, emotional or nervous. Maybe you've been experiencing unexplained aches and pains. Etherically, you're probably involved in the recent incidents in Japan and elsewhere around the world.



What next?

Beyond the tragedy and emotion, which are all very real, a message is trying to reach us through these events. We need to face facts and change our ways. Now.

As a species, we've taken an extreme gamble. Disaster by disaster, we're finding out just how high the stakes are.

For those interested in the astrology, it goes like this. The gas giant Uranus was hours away from entering Aries when the 8.9 earthquake struck Japan on Friday, triggering a deadly tsunami. Now chaotic Uranus is transiting the sign of the warrior and squaring Pluto, whose destructive energy transforms through annihilation.

In Capricorn, Pluto takes aim at so-called power structures like corporations, institutions and governments. As these planetary heavy hitters square off, the stage is set for sudden, violent transformation for years to come. The alignments won't even be exact until next year. An extended series of seven exact squares between Uranus and Pluto begins in 2012 and continues through 2015.

According to seismologists, even more Earth-shaking activity was happening in the 1960s than what we're experiencing today. Guess what was going on astrologically in the '60s? That was the last time Uranus and Pluto met up.

Because of the timing of their discovery, these outer planets are associated with uranium (Uranus) and plutonium (Pluto). Aries is fire. Capricorn is Earth. Add the acceleration of the Mayan Ninth Wave - which began two days before the cataclysm in Japan - and we've got rather a pressure cooker on our hands.

Given all that, a proliferation of nuclear reactors may not be the most evolved choice, especially when you put them in known seismic fault zones. Japan isn't alone in that practice. Did you know there are more than 190 nuclear facilities in North America? That includes a dozen in California, where a major earthquake is overdue. These are not just reactors. The count includes places where radioactive materials are processed and nuclear waste is stored.

Europe has 97 nuclear facilities in 17 countries, including 18 in the United Kingdom, 25 in France and 15 in Germany. In Asia, which encompasses much of the seismic Ring of Fire, there are 63 nuclear facilities. A breach at any of these could be devastating, to say the least. (Source: http://www.nukeworker.com/maps/facilitydirectory.php)


Earth in balance

In the prophecy of the Hopi Indians of North America, the term Koyaanisqatsi means "life out of balance." Thirty years ago, a film by that name became a cult classic. Its message rings true today, especially in the aftermath of recent catastrophic events. Other films in the "Quatsi Trilogy" include "Powaqqatsi" (life in transformation) and "Naqoyqatsi" (life as war).

These riveting tone poems, set to exceptional musical scores, pose a question we should all be asking ourselves: Are we ready to wake up, stop the insanity and work together to find solutions?

I've written this before, and I'll repeat it here. We've reached a tipping point. The future of Earth and humanity hangs in the balance. The way things go depends on us.

Relief efforts and prayer are natural, and necessary, responses in times like these. However, until we address the deeper issues underlying the serious challenges we face today, we'll continue to be at risk. It's time to lift the veil and really look at what's out of balance in our world, figure out why and how we're going to fix it.


March 18-20, 2011

The next big portal occurs with the Virgo-Pisces Full Moon on Friday night into Saturday, March 18/19, followed by the Equinox on March 20. On this day of equal parts darkness and light, we have a supreme opportunity to step into our power, align with a higher destiny and help shape the future for generations to come.

Individual prayer and meditation focusing on balance will be potent throughout this gateway. Joining with others for meditation and ritual will amplify the effects exponentially. Align with your soul, the Earth and the cosmos as you breathe, together, in silence.

You're also invited to join in a special teleconference I'll be hosting directly on the March 20 Equinox alignment. We'll give the dates of upcoming critical alignments, share ideas and practices for being with the ramped-up evolutionary energies of the Mayan Ninth Wave, and fuse our intent with the incoming cosmic frequencies through a special group co-creation and Equinox celebration just as the Sun crosses into Aries. Details are posted on my website here: http://www.starpriestess.com/events.html#balance

Many others will be having Equinox gatherings as well. Joining together in circle is a positive, co-creative step in shifting the energy and restoring balance on Earth. It's time to get involved.

We live in a transition period between world ages. Prophecies of spiritual traditions around the world speak of these times as a period of purification, a cleansing of humanity and the Earth in preparation for a new beginning.

Spiritually and scientifically, a quantum leap out of darkness is possible, but not guaranteed. It's time to step up and co-create the future of life on Earth.

The Next Wave



How will you spend the end of time?

Silently, this week, a new wave of consciousness is forming. Off in the distance, the mother drum sounds, heartbeat of creation. In rhythmic overtones, she heralds a new beginning.

Beating......beating...... The drum builds to a crescendo through the Equinox in March, on though a volatile mid-year eclipse series and beyond, toward an infinite moment of divine splendor.

The end begins now.

A radical and profound interpretation of the sacred Mayan calendar pinpoints March 9 through October 28, 2011, as the ninth and final wave of consciousness expansion in the current evolutionary cycle that began 16.4 billion years ago.

The interpretation is offered by Mayan scholar Carl Johan Calleman, who's been tracking this ancient timekeeping system for several decades. His research diverges from the commonly held belief that the Mayan calendar ends in December 2012.

In Carl's view, a cosmic, evolutionary process is encoded in the Mayan system. Through a simultaneous series of nine underworlds, the drama of life unfolds, each phase building on the last and accelerating by a factor of 20 until we reach the highest plateau. Because of the acceleration encoded in the pyramid structure, the ninth underworld is the shortest, lasting only from March 9 through October 28.

This is a time of awakening and rapid evolution, the seeding of a new paradigm we're creating together with every breath.

A deeper, felt experience of time is emerging as we align with the rhythms of creation. Within this phase, our concept of linear time collapses and we become more aware of the cyclical nature of time.

On this wave, we have a new and rare opportunity to merge with the quantum field of infinite possibility, the realm of God(dess) and, ultimately, the conscious manifestation of reality. We begin to experience true time, the eternal now that encompasses past, present and future.

All that's needed to attain this next evolutionary level is the intent to ascend in consciousness.


Rhythms of creation

Throughout the ninth underworld, cosmic energies pulse in 18-day waves made up of nine ascending days of light and nine descending days of darkness. This 18-day rhythm builds throughout the cycle, culminating near the end of October, according to Carl's calculation. (The link to download the Ninth Wave calendar shown to the right is included below.)

Waves of creation flow in increasing intensity as the evolution of consciousness accelerates. Structures, forms and beliefs collapse, and time seems to speed up. Individually and collectively, we'll experience an acceleration of the chaotic energies that have already become familiar in recent years. The revolutionary wave spreading through the Mideast will travel around the world.

I've been sitting with this concept since I learned about it in 2001, journeying with the rhythms Carl has discovered. It feels right and real to me, although I don't perceive that the truth of Carl's interpretation negates the truth of other day counts or interpretations, or other timekeeping systems. Carl doesn't have all the answers, but I do believe he's discovered something important that helps us make our way through a tumultuous transition.


Turning into one

In Carl's interpretation, the ninth and final phase that begins this week is called the Universal Underworld. We're completing the Galactic Underworld, which began in 1999. Think of the transformation you've experienced since then, and you'll get an idea of how much change will be packed into the next six months or so. Wow, right?

Through the galactic portal, we access the universal. "Universe" means, literally, "turned into one." And unity consciousness is what the Ninth Wave is about. This idea of "oneness" isn't just an awareness that we're all brothers and sisters and need to live in harmony with each other and the Earth. It's the attainment of divine consciousness. You might call it God consciousness or enlightenment, Christhood or Buddhahood, yoga or union with Source.

As I wrote in my book, Cosmic Time, the Mayan calendar tells of the possibility of a direct, personal experience of the divine, the awakening of humanity to its unlimited evolutionary potential.

We've been assimilating the galactic energies pulsing through the eighth wave, and this week we begin the climb toward our evolutionary destiny as divine souls embodied on Earth. This is a journey that lasts through late October, on through 2012 and beyond.


What to expect

Reality as we've known it is dissolving in this end of time.

In my 2011 Astro Forecast, published back in December, I wrote: "As we all know by now, the game has changed on Earth. Economies, governments, businesses, education, social systems, the arts, sciences, technology and medicine all look radically different than they did just a few years ago. Incoming cosmic frequencies are speeding up the changes. In 2011, ramped-up evolutionary forces shift into overdrive. The reconfiguration is just beginning."

We’ve reached a tipping point. By focusing on love and abundance and holding a higher vision for the future, we can seize the moment and become empowered co-creators manifesting a compelling destiny aligned with our true purpose.

If you're going the empowered route, don't trust anyone who tells you what's going to happen during this highly volatile, highly creative time. The whole point of the next evolutionary wave is for each of us to take responsibility for creating the future. We incarnated to grow through this experience. Why give your power away to channels and psychics who make predictions?


Attunement

You and I and everyone else have an opportunity to directly access - even merge with - the consciousness of all creation in this next level of evolutionary expansion.

There are many ways to attune to the natural rhythms pulsing through this wave. Among my favorites are silence, unplugging from technology, spending time in nature, drumming, chanting, sacred movement, gardening, aromatherapy and other integrative body-mind-spirit practices.

Pretend you know nothing. Be like a child, no conditioning, no expectations. Allow yourself to be surprised and delighted by the miracle that is life.

Stillness is a necessity. Periodically throughout the day, and in preparation for sleep, I like to center, close my eyes and breathe with the forces of creation.

In these moments, I'm brought back to a simple awareness, the remembrance of love. Love is the organizing principle of the universe. Through love we conceive. Through love we create. Love is all. And it's all, now, as we awaken beyond time.

On March 9, you may enjoy breathing with others around the world who are consciously choosing to actualize the potential of the Mayan Ninth Wave. You're invited to join in the Universal Breathing Room from your location (details below).

Other potent alignments include:

Equinox - March 20
Spring Lunar Festivals - April 17, May 17 and June 15 (which is a total lunar eclipse)
Eclipses - June 1 and 15, July 1
Solstice - June 21
Equinox - September 22/23
Eclipses - November 24 and December 10
Solstice - December 21

These and others are detailed in my 2011 Astro Forecast mp3 audio recording and PDF document (links below). I'm also putting together a special global teleconference for March 20 to explore, play and create with the energies of 2011-2012 and beyond. Details will be announced shortly.

Galactic Love


Emotions are running high as the Moon waxes to full in this season of love. Everyone seems to be bit more sensitive than usual. Jubilant, yet wary.

As we integrate each massive change in our lives and our world, we anticipate the next. The new changes are already building, gathering momentum.

It's only February, and it already seems certain that 2011 will live up to its potential as a pivotal year in human history.

The Full Moon in Leo/Aquarius rises Thursday night (February 17/18), illuminating the divinity of the human spirit and inviting us to discover our unique individuality within the context of the collective.

What a galactic awakening this is, a flowering of the heart.


What Is Love?

Every year when Valentine's rolls around, I notice how my perceptions of love have evolved. To me, love is all there is. Each being, each soul, every act and every thing is an expression of the one source of all creation, and that source is love.

Love is a walk in the forest or a stroll on the beach. It's a meal shared with friends, a celebration with family. Love is a tear shed by a father beholding his child. It's a handful of seeds planted in spring. Love is a conversation. It's a sacred promise, a commitment. Love is a blessing and a gift. Love is innocence. Love is the wind.

What does it mean, then, to be in love? I like to think of love as a way of life, of being in love with life, of living in harmony, the full integration of body, mind, spirit and soul, one with the earth and the cosmos.

To be in love is to love your self, to love each other and all of creation.


Sacred Relationship

When we live in a soul-centered, heart-centered way, relationships develop and unfold naturally. We’re all one, all sacred. From the stranger on the street to your newborn grandson, from the birds singing in the trees to the ocean waves dancing in velvet moonlight, life is an interwoven tapestry of relationships.

As we evolve, we begin to feel safe expressing and relating physically, emotionally and spiritually with others.

In these times of accelerating change, many relationships begin and end quickly, freeing us to spiral into ever higher expressions of human connection. Some relationships continue and deepen as we transform.

We learn through interaction with another. Each one is sacred other, a teacher, mirror and guide. Our children and parents, partners, friends, extended family, teachers, caregivers, colleagues, everyone who crosses our path touches us, enriching our life through the act of relating.


A Vision

In this transition to the next world age, conscious souls are finding each other, reconnecting. The flames of love are rekindled. One-on-one relationships form the basis of community.

Knowing that our children’s future depends on our actions today, we begin to build our communities, creating a foundation that ensures their birthrights of freedom, prosperity and fulfillment.

We search for common ground, a shared vision, and put down roots. We design a new culture, free from the past yet harvesting the wisdom of our rich and varied experiences. We create an economy. We learn the art of interdependence, respecting and honoring the individual, sacred other. Each one contributes, and receives, through this powerful, self-sustaining matrix.

In this Aquarian moment, we are one global community, an ever-expanding circle, linked in a common destiny – the survival and evolution of the Earth and humanity.

Our histories, our skin colors, our languages, religions and philosophies vary. One spirit unites us and draws us together, weaving a luminous fabric of unity in diversity.

It all begins with love.

Waves of Change



This is amazing.

I just read the headline: The 18-Day Miracle: Egyptian People Power Ousts Hosni Mubarak. Chants of "Egypt is Free! Egypt is free!" ring in the streets, not only in Cairo but around the world.

In less than three weeks, the people of Egypt have overturned a 30-year dictatorship.

The path to Egypt's empowerment was paved last month when the people of Tunisia pushed dictator Zine El Abidine into exile after a month of deadly demonstrations in that country.

The people are speaking. Who's next?

In this year of quantum possibilities, what changes would you like to make in your life, in your community, in your world? Here's your chance. Dream big.

The planetary transits and alignments in 2011 are extremely potent, which means they hold amazing potential. Rather than resisting the energies of change, we can focus cosmic forces to transform our lives and our world.

Collective transformation begins within each of us individually. In this still-new year, more than ever before, we have an enormous opportunity to step into our power and do things differently on planet Earth.


2011 Forecast

This is just the beginning. The next wave of evolutionary intensity begins in early March when the Universal Underworld of the Mayan calendar begins and Uranus crosses into Aries, sign of the warrior. In the ninth and final underworld, the evolution of consciousness accelerates by a factor of 20, which means a change that used to take a year from 1999 to now will now happen in 20 days. (Given today's events, perhaps Carl Calleman was right when he first calculated the beginning of the ninth underworld to begin February 11, 2011. He has since revised that date to March 9. Read his comments below.)

As I wrote in December in my 2010 Astro Forecast: "Sweeping political and economic changes will continue to reshape our world in coming years. Within the 2012 transition, we’ve reached a tipping point. By focusing on love and abundance and holding a higher vision for the future, we can seize the opportunity to become empowered co-creators and manifest a compelling destiny aligned with our true purpose.

"As we make our way toward 2012 and beyond, all beings are invited to consciously engage in creating a world of peace and prosperity through this rebirthing on planet Earth."


Global Alliance

A huge focus for me in this year of quantum potential is a new global alliance committed to shifting the trajectory of life on Earth toward an environmentally sustainable, socially just, spiritually fulfilling human presence on the planet by 2014.

Four Years Go isn't an organization. It's a movement. Everyone is welcome, and your energy is needed. Individuals, organizations and businesses around the world are making a commitment to change the world, and more are signing on every day.

If you're as inspired by what's happening around the world as I am, and you believe in the power of our collective will to change the course of history, I invite you to check out the 4YG video and make your commitment. If you want to contribute your time and talents to realizing this vision, visit the link below to get involved as a Mobilizer.

If Four Years Go doesn't appeal to you, find something that does. Take a stand. Contribute. Now's the time to make a difference.

I wrote in December that "2011 is a year for vigilance and determination in thought, word and action. Absolutely everything will have more impact than ever before. As the manifestation of energy (thought) into form becomes nearly instantaneous, miracles become commonplace."

Namaste.

Mayan Calendar Ninth Wave
Dear Friends: As most of you have heard Hosni Mubarak has stepped down from power in Egypt on this day of 1 Imix (1 Alligator) in the traditional Mayan tzolkin count, which also happens to be the amazing palindrome date 1102-2011. As you know I do not believe this date to be the beginning of the high frequency ninth wave bringing in unity consciousness starting March 9, 2011. Yet, this is still the beginning of the tzolkin round that would lead to the top of the pyramid of consciousness October 28, 2011 and so 1 Imix is a significant seeding date for the processes that are now starting. The downfall of Mubarak is then as I believe the beginning of a process their dictatorial regimes and authoritarianism will, in a complex process with ups and downs, will start to crumble world wide and ultimately be replaced with a world of unity consciousness. This seeding is the significance of this day and hopefully many will align with it and find a constructive path to the future. Regards, Carl Johan Calleman

Blessed Imbolc

Shh, listen. Can you hear it? A stirring deep within the Earth, hushed, nearly imperceptible.

From the belly of the Mother, new life pushes forth at the Imbolc cross-quarter gateway. In the depths of the Earth womb, beneath snow and ice, natural cycles of creation are silently at work. New life is gestating. Rebirth is at hand.

The ancient Sabbat of Imbolc marks the seasonal turning from winter toward spring in the northern hemisphere. The days grow noticeably longer, and signs of spring begin to emerge from the ground. The promise of rebirth and renewal is fulfilled. South of the equator, this is the Lammas cross-quarter, with the Sun's light beginning to recede as autumn approaches.

February 2 is the traditional date of Imbolc. The festival was Christianized as Candlemas, when the candles to be used in the Catholic Church in the coming year are blessed. In North America, February 2 is Groundhog Day. The groundhog tells us when spring will come, based on whether he sees his shadow.

Traditional Imbolc on February 2 coincides this year with a revolutionary New Moon featuring five planets in Aquarius and a highly-charged aspect between Venus and Uranus. Details in my blog post here: http://starpriestess.blogspot.com/2011/02/feast-of-love.html

Zodiacal Imbolc falls on February 3 as the Sun crosses 15 degrees Aquarius. This is the mid-point between Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox. Imbolc is one of the four “cross-quarters" traditionally celebrated as Sabbats in pagan traditions. Like the solstices and equinoxes, the effects of the cross-quarters are felt for three days, so the gateway is February 2-4.

“Imbolc” means “in the belly.” In Celtic tradition, this Sabbat is the festival of the Goddess Brighid, who relates to the Corn Maiden in Native American tradition. Both goddess archetypes symbolize the potential of new life within the Earth, within the human female form, and within the feminine aspect of all beings, male and female. Imbolc reminds us of our powers of creation.


The Sabbat

Traditionally we celebrate the Sabbats with ritual, consciously creating with intent as we move toward the birthing at the Spring Equinox on March 20. Progress may seem slow on the surface. Trust that new life is sprouting on inner levels, just as the tiny seeds of spring are beginning to germinate deep within the belly of Mother Earth.

The cosmos gives the green light for new projects, travel and adventure when the Sun enters active Aries at the Vernal Equinox on March 20. This year, Imbolc heralds the beginning of the ninth and final underworld of the Mayan calendar (March 9) and the advent of Uranus' re-entry into Aries (March 11) as he closes in on seven exact squares to powerhouse Pluto in 2012-2015.

Soon, hibernation will be over. The Sun warms our bodies and kisses the Earth. The sights and sounds and smells of a wondrous creation fill our senses. Spring is life on Earth. A new you blossoms, as a flower opening to the sky.



Galactic Awakening
A Tele-Gathering Celebrating Imbolc and the New Moon
February 2, 2011
Details: http://galacticawakening.blogspot.com

You're invited to join others around the world in sacred circle on the evening of the Aquarius New Moon and the beginning of the Imbolc cross-quarter.

In this special teleconference gathering, you'll learn more about the tradition of Imbolc, share your experiences with others consciously weaving the galactic energies of the solar year, and co-create ritual in alignment with the sacred gateway.

It is my honor and privilege to introduce you to the creatrix and facilitator of this circle of empowerment, Leah McCullough.

When Leah and I met a half-dozen years ago, we immediately recognized each other. It was a reunion of souls, the fulfillment of a sacred contract. Our paths have intertwined through the ages. We had called each other in.

Since then, Leah has studied with me and supported me in circle, in preparation for her role leading groups. A natural intuitive, priestess initiate, budding astrologer, devoted wife and mother of precious twin star babies, Leah is a remarkable talent, wise beyond her years, heart-centered and dedicated to the awakening of higher consciousness on Earth.

I am pleased to invite you to join Leah for the birthing of her latest creation, Galactic Awakening, which she'll initiate February 2 and continue on the cross-quarters and Summer Solstice.

Details: http://galacticawakening.blogspot.com

A blessed Imbolc to all.

Feast of Love


"You say you want a revolution?"
- The Beatles

With this week's New Moon, the table is set for a feast of Aquarian love.

On Wednesday, the Sun, Moon, Mars, Chiron and Neptune all meet in the sign of the next astrological age.

With this celebratory lineup, Mars joins the Sun and Moon at 14 Aquarius. This cheery conjunction is symbolized by lovebirds sitting on a fence, singing happily. Saturn in Libra trines the Sun-Moon-Mars triple conjunction, urging us to wage peace and stand up for justice.

At the same time, Venus aligns with the Galactic Center in late Sagittarius and squares volatile Uranus. Expect the unexpected with this cosmic configuration.

This lunation is about personal love and spiritual agape, the birthing of a new galactic consciousness. It's also about upheaval and chaos. Though disruptive, there's enormous potential for healing and empowerment of the self, and the establishment of a new order rooted in love.

Here's a shining example of how these energies are playing out.

Chaos erupted last week in a historic display of solidarity in Egypt. Patterned after a similar revolution in Tunisia earlier this month, the turmoil escalated over the weekend with headlines screaming "Egyptians defy curfew as chaos rocks Cairo" and "Cairo airport a scene of chaos as foreigners flee."

Their spirits worn thin by generations of oppression, the people are stepping up, suddenly emboldened and assisted by lightning-fast communication via the Internet (a Uranian invention). Today's turnout of a quarter-million Egyptians in Cairo is described as "jubilant." And it's happening in the land of the Sphinx and great pyramids. Hmm.

If you think this is wild, just wait till March when the Mayan Universal Underworld begins and Uranus enters Aries, sign of the warrior. Talk about chaos. Uranus, ruler of Aquarius, is already playing with revolution as Pluto, the Transformer, persistently pushes for evolution. Now in Aries, Jupiter carries the flag for higher consciousness.

As we said at the beginning of the year in my Astro Forecast, life on Earth will be radically different in 2011. It already is.


Aquarian Rebirth

New moons are about new beginnings. This one coincides with the cross-quarter gateway of Imbolc (Lammas in the southern hemisphere), midpoint between the Solstice and Equinox. Meaning "in the belly," Imbolc marks the turning of the seasons as new life gestates deep within Earth's womb.

Themes are purification and renewal in preparation for rebirth in spring. Relationships are due for an overhaul, too...relationships with self, with the divine, with the Earth and her creatures, the cosmos and each other. This includes partners, family, friends, neighbors, villages and humanity as a whole.

Is it time for a relationship inventory? What's incubating inside you? The New Moon is exact at 9:31 PM Eastern on February 2. Imbolc is February 2-4.

Under this configuration it's time for radical love and forgiveness. Allow the innate power of love to transform and heal. Prepare for rebirth.



Galactic Awakening

Join others from around the world in celebration of this auspicious New Moon-Imbolc gateway with a new tele-gathering on February 2, hosted by my dear star sister Leah McCullough. Details are posted in Leah's blog:

The Ninth Wave



"The year of 2011 is not scheduled to be just like another year. This is our last chance to live up to being co-creators with the cosmic plan." - Carl Calleman


Welcome to the flow of evolution.

For those who read the first incarnation of my 2011 Astro Forecast document and/or listened to the audio recording of our 1/11 Astro Forecast Teleconference, I need to clarify something.

Carl Johan Calleman has updated his calculation for the beginning of the "ninth wave" of consciousness evolution encoded in the Mayan calendar. He originally published that the ninth and final wave, called the Universal Underworld, would begin February 11, 2011, a date included in his early books and the Powerpoint presentation referenced in my astro forecasts for this year.

He has revised his calculation, and the new date for the beginning of the ninth wave, or Universal Underworld, is March 9, 2011. The end date of this wave, and the completion of all underworlds, remains October 28, 2011.

When I wrote to Carl about the discrepancy in the dates, he explained: "In my book I wrote February 11, 2011, as a provisory date. I could not yet tell what was the actual beginning date and now I have come to lean over to the March 9, 2011, date. It was simply too difficult to see this clearly when I wrote it in 2001 or even earlier." I've updated my 2011 Astro Forecast, available here: http://www.starpriestess.com/AllisonRae2011AstroForecast.pdf


Mayan Activation

I became acquainted with Carl's work in 2001 through Ian Lungold, whose presentation of the intricacies of Carl's interpretation was superb. Ian's website, http://www.MayanMajix.com, continues his legacy, and I've posted videos of his talks on my YouTube channel.

For those not familiar with Carl's work, he has devoted much of his scholarly life to interpreting the intent and meaning of the Mayan calendar. He's best known for calculating a different "end date" of the calendar (October 28, 2011 rather than the commonly held December 21, 2012), but more importantly, he sees the calendar less as a timekeeping system and more as an expression of unfolding consciousness, a process that's accelerating (and thus, related to time).

It's mindblowing stuff, and I highly recommend getting to know his work if you're at all interested in the deeper, esoteric meaning of what's happening on the Earth at this time. You might also be interested in joining up with others around the world who are creating ritual and intent in alignment with the beginning of the ninth wave of consciousness evolution on March 9.

I don't know who's right about the end date of the Mayan calendar, and my sense is that it doesn't matter. Over the years I've been exposed to many wisdomkeepers connected with the Mayan calendar and teachings, and I feel certain they're all making enormous contributions to the awakening of consciousness on our planet during this transition to the next world age. I will say that when I experienced Ian's presentation of Carl's information, every cell in my body lit up with recognition of cosmic truth. That didn't even happen when I was in the presence of Mayan daykeepers, so I know Carl's onto something.


What's Gonna Happen?

In our teleconference on January 11, a caller asked the obvious: What does all that mean? What will happen? I only half-jokingly responded that she might ask Mr. Calleman himself because I hadn't seen anything from him lately on the subject. He has since published an intriguing article on his website.

He writes: "March 9, 2011, is the dawn of the wave of unity." In a radio interview last fall, Carl explained how his understanding of unity consciousness is bigger than the oneness we feel with each other, the Earth and all of creation. Unity is union with our Divine Source, or what he terms "God." If that doesn't change the world, what will?

The most intriguing aspect of this ninth and final wave is that it's so fast. We have from March 9 through October 28 to step into our power, and our birthright, as divine co-creators embodied on Earth.

No wonder they call it a quickening.


The Ninth Wave

As the evolution of consciousness accelerates, each of us will very likely experience the shift differently, according to our perceptions, beliefs, conscious intent and subconscious conditioning.

One thing seems clear. Exactly what will happen is up to us.

So it's important to purify the mind, open our hearts, and align with the soul and higher truth, connect with others who are consciously making this journey in service to all beings and the Earth, and allow the guidance to flow about how to navigate these uncertain waters.

"There is no single right answer to how this transformation to unity consciousness is to be brought about everywhere," Carl writes. "These will be extraordinary times."
