WE HAVE an action-packed week — and month — ahead of us. As I ponder the list of highlighted planetary aspects for the coming week, I find it hard to know exactly where to start, or which aspects to focus most attention on … a sure indicator that the energies on the horizon are both varied and complex.
Finding a physical analogy often helps me find a bit of order and understanding amidst chaos. If we look at this week’s array of planetary influences as dishes at a meal, we can start to define things a bit more clearly. Continue reading

Unlocking the Mysteries of Time
–by Maria Popova, syndicated from brainpickings.org, Sep 25, 2013
“Time perception matters because it is the experience of time that roots us in our mental reality.”
Given my soft spot for famous diaries, it should come as no surprise that I keep one myself. Perhaps the greatest gift of the practice has been the daily habit of reading what I had written on that day a year earlier; not only is it a remarkable tool of introspection and self-awareness, but it also illustrates that our memory “is never a precise duplicate of the original [but] a continuing act of creation” and how flawed our perception of time is — almost everything that occurred a year ago appears as having taken place either significantly further in the past (“a different lifetime,” I’d often marvel at this time-illusion) or significantly more recently (“this feels like just last month!”). Rather than a personal deficiency of those of us befallen by this tendency, however, it turns out to be a defining feature of how the human mind works, the science of which is at first unsettling, then strangely comforting, and altogether intensely interesting.
That’s precisely what acclaimed BBC broadcaster and psychology writer Claudia Hammond explores in Time Warped: Unlocking the Mysteries of Time Perception (public library) — a fascinating foray into the idea that our experience of time is actively created by our own minds and how these sensations of what neuroscientists and psychologists call “mind time” are created. As disorienting as the concept might seem — after all, we’ve been nursed on the belief that time is one of those few utterly reliable and objective things in life — it is also strangely empowering to think that the very phenomenon depicted as the unforgiving dictator of life is something we might be able to shape and benefit from. Hammond writes: Continue reading

AS PLUTO now slowly begins to move forward after five months of backward motion, we can review our personal lives over that retrograde period (April 12 to September 20) and consider what we have learned and how we have changed. When a planet is moving backward in the sky, its effects are said to be more internalized. Then, when it starts moving forward, we are supported in taking action in our outer worlds, based on the inner growth we have experienced. Continue reading

Hello Dear Ones,
So many of you are so tuned in. It is so beautiful to us when you sense subtle energy changes, and trust your perceptions, your sense of things. Even if you cannot totally explain it, even if it is mysterious or the implications unclear, so many of you still feel the truth of the currents now in play and know with confidence what you sense.
You feel subtle energy reshaping and you get the gist of the qualities of what is taking place, you sense the import of things and in this we find so much to be joyous about, for you are really orienting and trusting your inner clarity. And of course, in these subtle senses of things, you are very much right. Continue reading
