Another eclipse photo

And, here's how the eclipse looked from Vancouver Island -- very mystical and mysterious. Many thanks to Kalon for sending this to me!

Even the car guys...

I had to chuckle this morning, when passing the local Jiffy Lube. On their marquee was written: LEAVE WORRY BEHIND.
Quite in keeping with the Gemini Eclipse themes!

And, here's one of the three stunning photos sent to me by Jim Perry -- showing his view of yesterday's eclipse from Valley View, Texas. Thanks, Jim!

Remembering to breathe ... DEEPLY

With the Gemini Solar Eclipse occurring tomorrow, we're already working with its energies pretty intensely. Throughout this past week, I've talked with clients who were experiencing the impact of this eclipse in their charts, as it initiated necessary change so that they could move forward in their lives.

Gemini rules the thinking process and our nervous systems, so it's not surprising to find that our minds are a bit harder to calm right now. If you find yourself feeling anxious over these next few days, remember to BREATHE consciously and deeply. It's amazing what profound effect that simple process can have. And, of course, if you have a meditation process you like to use, be sure to rely on that right now, too...

Other suggestions include listening to calming music, sitting outside in the garden in the sunshine -- whatever tools you have that help you relax your mind, breathe calmly, and create inner silence. Besides calming the nervous system, in that silence, we are more likely to receive the new levels of information that are available to us through this eclipse energy.

Solar winds and CMEs

If you monitor the website, you already know that there has been increased activity on the Sun over the past day or so. Several strong flares have created solar winds that have headed toward Earth, at the same time that large coronal holes have released CMEs... All of which began interacting with Earth's energy field this afternoon (Wednesday, May 9) -- and, of course, all of our energy fields as well.

So, if you have been having trouble focusing for the past few hours (or have been feeling more emotional or tired or irritable), take it easy -- these energy waves can make us a little unsteady while we're getting used to them. Get good sleep, if possible, tonight, to allow extra time for integrating the energies. Meditate if possible, and drink plenty of water -- the usual advice for self-care.

And, stay open to the insights and information that these solar winds carry -- So much solar activity means we must be ready for our next step!

"Harmless but beautiful"

I had to chuckle at what posted this morning about tonight's Full Moon:
"SUPER MOON" TONIGHT: Tonight's full Moon is a perigee moon, as much as 14% bigger and 30% brighter than other full moons of 2012. This is a harmless but beautiful astronomical phenomenon. Enjoy the moonlight!
I found this humorous, not because I expect tonight's Full Moon to bring about catastrophes in any way, but because it was clearly discounting of the effects of lunations -- and, since at the very least, Full Moons affect the ocean's tides, I think we can hazard a guess that they affect other watery manifestations (humans and their emotional bodies), too! Especially given the fact that this Full Moon is in Scorpio, arguably the most emotionally intense of the 12 zodiac signs.

Still, the main point is that tonight's Full Moon will be the closest to the Earth, and therefore the largest in appearance, of all the Full Moons of 2012 -- so, if you get a chance and some clear skies, be sure to take a look tonight! The lunation will be exact at 8:36pm PDT (11:36pm EDT).

And, if anyone takes a good photo of the event, I'd love to see it! Please send it to me at

Postscript: Lisa Perry in Valley View, Texas sent me several gorgeous photos of the SuperMoon, taken by her husband Jim Perry. Here's one of them -- many thanks, Lisa and Jim!
