What Is Your First Memory – And Did It Ever Really Happen?

What Is Your First Memory – And Did It Ever Really Happen?

I can remember being a baby. I recall being in a vast room inside a doctor’s surgery. I was passed to a nurse and then placed in cold metal scales to be weighed. I was always aware that this memory was unusual because it was from so early in my life, but I thought that perhaps I just had a really good memory, or that perhaps other people could remember being so young, too.

Are Dreams Wake-Up Calls From Your Psyche?

Are Dreams Wake-Up Calls From Your Psyche?
Perhaps you have always ignored your dreams or devalued the messages from this part of your psyche. But most cultures of the world have used dreams as healing tools, and Freud and Jung proved the great value that dreams have for us as conduits to instinct, buried memories, and the unconscious.

Who Is Saturn? What Does Saturn Symbolize?

 Who Is Saturn? What Does Saturn Symbolize?
Although symbolism and meaning will some­times overlap from planet to planet, each planet has its own distinct vocabulary and flavor. Saturn is no different. If I had to pick a flavor, I would say Saturn is sour, not sweet. Cold, not hot. Matter-of-fact, not passionate.

Beyond the Brain: The Intelligence of the Heart

Beyond the Brain: The Intelligence of the Heart
Most people would rather feel loving and appreciative than resentful and depressed. But often the world around us seems to be spinning out of control. Despite our best intentions, it's hard to maintain our emotional equilibrium when we're confronted every day -- sometimes every hour -- with stressful situations.

July 2018: Truth Found in Darkness

July 2018: Truth Found in Darkness
July is a month of deep inner movement which, like a quake far below the earth’s crust, may well shake foundations, but is less likely to bring the structures of our lives crashing down. With up to six retrogrades throughout the month, two eclipses (one also a Supermoon) and Mars still on the South Node, our internal world is in the spotlight while the external one may disappoint.

June 2018: The Alchemy of Emotional Expression and Authentic Communication

June 2018: The Alchemy of Emotional Expression and Authentic Communication
June 2018 finds us in the ‘waiting room’ of the next eclipse season beginning in July. How we manage the waiting, the growing sense of anticipation or anxiety, the mounting tension… or is it excitement?….depends largely on how happy we are to let things fall into place. Or would we rather force them there, before discovering we’ve jammed yet another square peg into a round hole?!

Intuition: The Most Trusted Guide

Intuition: The Most Trusted Guide
Developing our intuition is not as difficult as it may seem. We all have it and it's always working even without any effort on our part. Our challenge is to recognize its powers and follow its directions. Allowing your intuition to express itself may be as simple as asking who...

A Plea For Our Mother

A Plea For Our Mother
Mother Earth has suffered shockingly as a result of human ignorance, denial and narcissism for way too long. She lies bleeding at our feet and still we look away. But no more. Once Uranus begins its entry into Taurus in May 2018, the extent of our planet’s unbridled rage and unbounded love will become apparent in equal measure.

Working with Your Inner Children

Working with Your Inner Children
We like to think of ourselves as one congruent identity, one Self. Whether we are a forty-five-year-old businessman, a twenty-year-old college student or a seventy-year-old retiree, what we think of ourselves is based on what we are currently doing and who we believe ourselves to be.

Eris: The Radical Feminine Awakens

Eris: The Radical Feminine Awakens
Eris, in all her mighty glory, comes to set things straight. Eris knows the power of the feminine, the raw, primal force of childbirth, the fierce protection of a mother’s love, the enduring strength of a broken but embracing heart and the power of an awakened womb which nurtures deep within the hopes and dreams of generations.

How Should We Decide What To Do?

How Should We Decide What To Do?Most of us are faced with ethical decisions on a regular basis. Some are relatively minor – perhaps your cousin makes a new recipe and it really doesn’t taste good, and you have to decide whether to tell the truth or a little white lie so as not to hurt her feelings.

Not In Contact With The Inner Compass?

Not In Contact With The Inner Compass?
The shocking truth is that many of us have lost contact with our Inner Compass – with our connection to this Great Universal Intelligence – and so we have lost contact with our own internal guidance system. And because of this, we are not truly in contact with how we really feel about things and so we flounder in our life situations and life becomes a struggle. I know this sounds strange, but it is true nevertheless.

Expanding Your Connection with Nature and the Cosmos

Expanding Your Connection with Nature and the CosmosYour body “knows” connection with nature when you hike, garden, watch the moon rise, or collect stones and shells. Your heart remembers your own and your children’s joy in climbing trees, swimming in creeks, catching polliwogs. Yet you’ve mostly forgotten how to sustain your relations with mountains and trees from day to day.

The Solution Is Just A Stone's Throw Away

The Solution is Just a Stone's Throw AwaySome life situations generate feelings of helplessness or hopelessness and intellectual reasoning is not sufficient for figuring out what to do or what to change. Our patterns of behavior, thoughts and habits often unconsciously block new ideas and attitudes for fear of the unknown. In this case, other approaches are required.
