dscn2016The Pisces Solar Eclipse arrives at 14:58 UTC, 26.2.2017. The Sun will conjunct the Moon at 8 Pisces, making several aspects to other astrological bodies.

Solar Eclipses are New Moons – these represent powerful windows of time in which you can set seeds that will eventually grow. Eclipse energy makes things a little less predictable – as people, connections, ties can be ´eclipsed out´ – of one´s life (at least for the time being). It may also bring in new connections or energy to you, often in mysterious ways. So they are wildcards.

Now it gets even fuzzier with the fact that this Solar Eclipse takes place in Pisces, a sign that traditional astrology has had some issues grapping with. Some astrologers even considered it ´the dustbin of the zodiac´ as they classified anything otherworldly, mysterious, defying explicable phenomena – that did not fit in with the other houses –…

So in other words, whether it´s in me, you, people across this planet – we all have some parts of ourselves that lead the serpent to extremes. What is a process of creation-and-destruction becomes pure destruction. The serpent bleeds at the mouth in a bid to swallow itself. Suffering ensues.~Bairavee

Dr. Bairavee Balasubramaniam PhD


The symbol of the Serpent eating its Tail is used to signify regeneration, endless continuity of the cosmic cycle, the process of birth-rebirth and the dance between creation and destruction – ad infinitum. Think of it as the circle of life. But we don´t just end up exactly where we began, do we?

It´s more of a spiral. There is a (perceived) movement in a given direction of growth, suffering – or experience in general. Some spirals/cycles lead us to growth and happiness, and others to (a different kind of) growth and suffering. I´m simplifying it here for heuristic purposes – reality is rarely that neat.

The former is what we idealize, the latter is what we (often) neglect to mention. I find this perfectly expressed in the image of a real-life serpent biting seeking to swallow its tail to the point that its mouth begins to bleed. I haven´t…

Why it’s Crucial for Women to Heal the Mother Wound

Womb Of Light

What many people do not realize is that the core issue at the center of women’s empowerment is the mother wound.


Difficulty and challenges between mothers and daughters are rampant and widespread but not openly spoken about. The taboo about speaking about the pain of the mother wound is what keeps it in place and keeps it hidden in shadow, festering and out of view.

What exactly is the mother wound?

The mother wound is the pain of being a woman passed down through generations of women in patriarchal cultures. And it includes the dysfunctional coping mechanisms that are used to process that pain.

The mother wound includes the pain of:

  • Comparison: not feeling good enough
  • Shame: consistent background sense that there is something wrong with you
  • Attenuation: Feeling you must remain small in order to be loved
  • Persistent sense of guilt for wanting more than you currently have

Fifty thousand miles of Spirit-Guided Miracles & Magic


I go to seek a Great Perhaps. ~ François Rabelais

Wherever you go becomes a part of you somehow. ~ Anita Desai

The past twelve months have been the most daunting, miraculous, heart-breaking, inspiring, exhilarating and exhausting.  They have left me a to-the-marrow tired that I’ve never could have imagined when I chose to create this journey 14 months ago by making myself homeless.  What began as a knowing that I needed to move has morphed into a dance with the unknown that sates my soul, makes my heart bleed, and recreates me with each breath.

A year ago I was recovering from following a vision that took me from Virginia into Connecticut and preparing to help my best friend move from New Jersey to Seattle. I had no idea then what both of those trips were preparing me for. Although the…

THE LESSONS OF MISUNDERSTANDING by Priestess Bairavee Balasubramaniam, PhD

Dr. Bairavee Balasubramaniam PhD


A test of spiritual maturity and self-understanding occurs each time you are misread, misrepresented, misunderstood. Whether it be by strangers, friends, family members, kindred spirits and/or members of your Soul Tribe.

As you go through the world, spreading your messages, embodying your Essence, you are heard. But what is understood may be something wholly different. For we respond to who we think we speak to, not so much the person sitting right next to us.

Especially as human interactions are increasingly interfaced and facilitated by technology, it is wise to remember that very often – we are speaking to _our_ representation, or mental construct of a person – in our own heads, as opposed to who they are as an energetic being in embodied form.

That representation is layered by our assumptions, pre-conceptions, mis-conceptions and experiences of reality, it is filtered through our perspectives and tastes. So very often…

Thirty traits of being an Empath

Ingrid is Refreshing…take a sip.

God at the Kitchen Sink

Myth:  There are 30 Traits of Being an Empath or Symptoms of Being an Empath


There is only one trait that identifies one as an empath.  That is the capacity to feel other people’s emotions.  It is a trait, not a symptom. While this gift doesn’t operate or exist in isolation–because nothing does–being a psychic empath has little to do with ‘symptoms’ listed in the regurgitated google lists.

Being an empath doesn’t preclude you from being:  precognitive, creative, overwhelmed, have back and belly issues, always taking up for the underdog,  an addict or overweight, creative, love animals and nature, a truthseeker or introverted, unable to buy things that have been previously owned, moody/shy/aloof/disengaged/angry, emotionally unavailable, unable to handle living in a city or being in crowds, etc and ad nauseum.

In fact, most people who self-identify as ’empath’ are not.  Because you are sensitive and can relate well to…

From the delightful Karen Chrappa

a structure for spirit

The Full Moon in Capricorn is this Saturday, July 12th, bringing certain relationship dynamics to a head. Wherever communication has been lacking and emotions have been held in and back, prepare for whatever is pressing to come out on the table. Fortunately, Mars will also be trining loving Venus, which means if you are pure in your intentions to find a meeting ground and to resolve to evolve, your spirited talks will show the way.  Kristin Fontana, Evolutionary Astrologer


I recently returned to New York for the summer, grateful for the time and space to attempt to bring my book from chaos to order. Practices, rituals and ceremonies are woven throughout the book. As I was preparing for this upcoming full moon I thought to share an excerpt so you may use this time as an opportunity to transform your fears. For any ritual or ceremony, create a…
