Greetings beautiful souls,

A large brown mama bear with her slightly darker cub walk along the rosemary covered retaining wall in the long grass of my backyard hill. They pause to look at me. It is a summons.

My dream over the weekend of the Solstice and the Full Moon called me to my stalled work on the Motherworld book, Spirit directed, and to focus again on the wisdom and powers of the Dreamtime. Perhaps you, too, are feeling the urgency of a call to find your courage, to bring your powers to the protection of life, to find the sweet honey of life.

Bear is Spirit keeper of the West. The place of darkness, and the deep inner wisdom of the Dreamtime. When it feels as if there is no path to follow, we must go within to find our deepest resources, the light of inner knowing and intuition to find our way home. We have been called into being at this time to help, to participate, to co-create. Attune to the new story that wants to come through you, weaving personal and planetary myth into more beauty and love.

At the Solstice June 20, the sun stood still, momentarily in balance between light and dark. The world took a breath. And the seasons turn. This Solstice is a once-in a lifetime earth-sun-moon-Galactic alignment. We have a portal. We are at the edge. We are here to birth a new story. As we are flooded with greater light from the cosmos, we are becoming more available, like thin veils, to embody light as Homo luminous. It is a good time to dream, to choose a new direction. Or pick up something you thought was lost. Some idea or project you thought was impossible. Until now. Friday’s Strawberry Full moon in Capricorn calls us to address the karma of our ancestors, childhood, feelings, (sun in Cancer) and the dharma of our work in the world, with our devotion to the leadership of the Council of Grandmothers (moon in Capricorn).

“In all these developments, there was an element of surprise. Things that were impossible a few years ago seem to be possible today. And there is really the feeling that we live in this world of innovation, creativity, that we are…perhaps at a turning point.” –  Ilya Prigogine, Nobel Laureate,  Order Out of Chaos

As I listen to the pensive, stirring and sonorous “American Dreams” album by Charlie Haden and Michael Brecker, I am slightly soothed into believing that America will remain a democracy. Trump was found guilty on 34 felony counts for trying to illegally influence the election by paying hush money to adult film star Stormy Daniels, who turned out to be a strong, smart, sassy witness. Every public appearance Trump makes reveals his increasing, often hilarious, inability to make sense. Have you watched the boat-battery-shark speech in Las Vegas? The completely corrupt members of the Supreme Court are being exposed, although they continue to endanger and harm the health and safety of us all. Justice Clarence Thomas is a stand-out for his gun fetish and his contempt for women.

The “reasoning” for the overturning of Roe was based on a 17th century judge’s opinion who prosecuted witches and declared rape was not possible by a husband. There is no possible reasoning for the restoring of bump stocks, the allowing of machine guns, to citizens. Thomas approves of domestic abusers keeping firearms. In the USA, we are at a particularly precarious threshold. Either we collapse into increasing corruption, autocracy and chaos, or we remember our original sacred story. We were never a Christian nation. We were founded by mystics and revolutionaries. We are a nation of immigrants. Several of our Founding Fathers were astrologers. They intentionally aligned the birth of our nation with the ancient magical powers of stars like Sirius, connected to the Goddess Isis, and the Great Mother (Cancer). At the heart of the American vision was the model of democracy we copied from the Iroquois Confederacy (Haudenosaunee) people. However, the founders left out the leadership of the Mothers and Grandmothers, the Law of Peace, and the law of sacred reciprocity with Nature and all life.

The Universe is giving us exactly the conditions and situations we need to wake up and claim our creative powers. To remember that we are all together in the Sacred Hoop.


I dreamed:  My gifted writer and teacher friend Linda C. and I are in slightly different offices but fully visible to each other. We are working on a Coaching Leadership program for women titled “Operation Restoration”. We have both discarded the thick binders of templates we were given, the statistics and data sheets. The agenda items seem boring, not alive to either of us. “I think what is needed is spiritual magic!” I say. We laugh and move into a different room together. We are going to create a new women’s’ leadership program.


We are dream weavers. We are mythmakers. We are drawing new maps of the world from the compass of our hearts.

The archetypes and energies of female creation stories, indigenous archetypes, and feminine power are returning to collective consciousness with the discoveries and transits of new outer planets. We are on the edge of a paradigm shift and Sedna is bringing a new story of Feminine shamanic and regenerative power as she moves into Gemini for the first time in 11,400 years. Changing signs. Changing stories.
A “dwarf” planet discovered in 2003, she is named for the Inuit goddess of the sea known as Mother of the Sea. In one of her legends, she rejects her father’s efforts to marry her off as his very beautiful daughter to one of the hunters in the village. Instead, she marries a hunter from another vilage, an outsider, who turns out to be a bird-spirit. Raven. A shapeshifter and shaman. Angry at her rebellion, her father comes to take her back to the home village. But Raven gathers his allies and makes a great thunderstorm upon the sea. In danger of capsizing, the father throws Sedna over the side of the canoe. When she tries to climb back in, he chops off her fingers and she sinks, surrendered, to the bottom of the sea. Her fingers become the creatures of the deep. Seals and walruses, and fish. In the depths, she transmutes the father’s betrayal and abandonment to magical powers. She commands the weather. Provides food for the tribe. The fishermen need to ask for her blessings so they can find food. And she needs her hair combed of the sins of mankind, to return to natural law, to sacred law.

Now the myth of the wounded, betrayed Feminine can be reimagined. As a planet, she is now aligned with the Pleiades. The Seven Sisters, the Seven Hathors. The Mothers of Culture. She is leading us to Source. Gemini says play. Experiment. Be curious. Tell a new story a lighter one a shapeshifting one. In service to the Spirit. Holy humor and sacred play can change the energies.

I love how the discovery of these very far out planets- like Sedna, like Eris, like Haumea, and MakeMake- are bringing the archetypes of  indigenous wisdom and the forgotten, exiled Feminine back to collective consciousness. It seems the farthest out planets are reaching into the deepest parts of our psyches as corresponding archetypes and energies for personal and planetary healing, wholeness, holiness.

The Sabian symbol for one degree Gemini reads:

A glass bottomed boat reveals undersea wonders.” Look deeper. Be curious. We are discovering new dimensions of life.

The outer dwarf planet Sedna has made a very powerful move into the sign of Gemini for the first time in 11,400 years. She brings her archetypal meaning to the master storyteller, the shapeshifter, the holder of duality and multidimensionality (Gemini). From abandonment and betrayal to surrender and transformation, the story of Sedna is bringing a new story of the transformation of Feminine energies, the awakened and magical sacred Goddess of the Deep.In our Dreaming the New Story circles, her myth will be one of the important female creation stories we will work with. Others will be: Grandmother Spider Woman. Eris. Haumea. Snake. Sekhmet. And so on.

Another potent archetypal energy in the astrology of this week is Neptune in the last degrees of Pisces at this Solstice and Full Moon. In the channeled Star Sparks commentary (Ellias Lonsdale)“The Earth is pregnant with alternate futures. Each of her progeny, each possible future could become the one chosen. The criteria center around whichever future stream is most genuinely surrendered to the highest will. It is the same microcosmically as macrocosmically. Many souls are pregnant with alternate futures. The one that prevails will likely be the one most surrendered to the absolute, the most rightful. You feel burstingly full of visions, possibilities, worlds, and streams. And you know that so very much shall pass away, but what is essential will keep on coming. It is very hard to tell who is who and what is what, which way to lean or how to conceive the way it shall go. But if you stay rooted in your inward awareness and enduring core sensibility, you will be tapped as a vessel for what is to be, and that is all you need to know.”

Neptune, planet of the Dreamtime, the Higher heart, reminds us of our oceanic oneness, the mystical, magical Dreamtime, love. In its shadow aspect, it can pull one into addiction, illusion, confusion. We see ample evidence of deception and lies in speech and media. We need to keep pointing out the emperor has no clothes! Neptune and Pluto are marking the ending of one world. Not “The’ world. “A” world. The end of illusions. The purging and cleansing of rot and corruption and unresolved trauma and grief. Towards the flourishing of our multidimensional capacities as homo luminousThis is a good time for Dreamwork, and for discernment.

To own our feminine power and to claim our leadership, we do not need to ascend but rather to go down and in, uncursing the dark, embodying the new story and birthing it. Not by climbing ladders, or pyramids, or following a step-by-step sequential process. We travel a weaving path, a spiral path, emerging and blossoming from the center of our hearts. Unfolding like a Fibonacci sequence. We are fractals.

ILYA: “When a system is far from equilibrium, small islands of coherence in a sea of chaos have the capacity to life the entire system to a higher order”.

It is the coherence of the heart we need. We can be those islands.

The sacred power of creation lives in the seeds of light that we store in our heart.” –  Arkan Lushwala

Restoring the heart of care and the soul of meaning to leadership in the world. We do this by bringing the missing stories of our deepest truths, and reclaiming our wisdom, power and sovereignty. We bring the medicine, magic and myth-making of Feminine power to map a new future. We are at a massive crossroads. We need a new mythology, a new planetary cosmology. As storyteller Martin Shaw says: “The correct response to uncertainty is mythmaking.”

Let us listen to dreamers who dare to imagine in the spaces made by the ruptures in society.” – Fr.Paolo Freire
