Light and Dark ~ Fear vs. Love!

“Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness.”
~Desmond Tutu

With all the current craziness happening on the planet, I’m being asked by clients, a lot: “How do I stay positive?” “How can I not get sucked into the violent, dark drama?” “How do I fight this?”

So, I’ve been musing on how to deal, and more importantly, how to prosper and even breakthrough into higher and greater potentials during these turbulent times. Because both energies are present–the Dark and the Light.

First of all, don’t fight. It only contributes to the violent energy. Ultimately, there is no fight to be had.

What is occurring is a part of a universal, cosmic dismantling of old, limiting structures and modes that no longer serve us. (War is one of those limiting structures.) And simply stated: the major planetary restructuring is freaking people out!

quilted heartNothing is the same. Roles are changing. Global boundaries are changing. Monies and banking are changing. How you relate to the world and your community and peers, is changing. This makes some people very uncomfortable–and angry.

As planetary energy breaks apart (or breaks free!), it releases old, even millenniums of emotions, … Read the rest

Love and Gratitude for a Transformational Experience

My mother passed away in September. The last few months, in fact the last few years, had been emotionally grueling because she was suffering from a number of illnesses. Yet, I’m so grateful for those last few years. Mom almost passed two years ago, and I believe she chose to hang-on to give us all a chance to come to terms with her leaving. She was the beloved matriarch of the family.

Meegan Skinners momThree days before Mom passed, she was unconscious for 10 hours. After a number of attempts, my father finally shook her awake. Upon awakening she told everyone that she had been to the Other Side, and was ready to go back again—thank you very much! This was very out of character for her, as she never gave much credence to spiritual matters or realms. Everyone was a bit shocked, and blamed it on a near death brain/chemical/delusion. But I knew otherwise.

In talking with Mom about her experience, she told me the Other Side was peaceful and lovely. She added that she now wondered why people are so scared of death … after all she was wasn’t going anywhere, she’d just be in a difference place. This felt … Read the rest

Mercury Retrograde in Libra: Finding Relationship Balance!

“Perhaps Mercury’s retrograde periods can cause our plans to go awry.
However, this is an excellent time to reflect of the past.
Intuition is high and coincidences can be extraordinary.

~Farmers Almanac

This Mercury Retrograde (September 17th through October 9th) is in the sign of Libra, highlighting the realm of relationships, the cosmic dance between self and others. Libra also rules balance, fairness and justice.

retrograde moonA retrograde period is nothing to fear, in fact, just the opposite! With the right perspective it can be an extraordinary time of gaining deeper perspective on how/why/when to move your life forward, powerfully (and more clearly) when Mercury goes direct. This MR points to a period of rebalancing aspects of your life that are out of alignment, especially on the relationship front.

So this MR point your compass towards transformation! Your North Star now lies in exploring your relationships and how they can help you understand and expand your life. For now, they are truly a mirror to your soul!

Full Moon, Super Moon, Total Lunar Eclipse—Oh My!

moon-blickSunday’s Full Moon in Aries (7:50pm PST) is also a Super Moon AND a Total Lunar Eclipse! Lunar Eclipses are a powerful Full Moon that relates to endings, as the Moon passes through the deepest part of the Earth’s Shadow. It’s also a Super Moon, meaning the Moon is at its closest point to Earth. There’s only been five times since 1900 where the Super Moon has coincided with a total Lunar Eclipse—and the next won’t happen for another 18 years!

So, this Lunar Occurrence has extra, triple-IMPACT, and expect to feel some shakeups in your life! The Moon is in the early degrees of Aries, giving it a powerful, push-forward, get your needs meet vibe. This is a time to watch out for being reactive and extra sensitive about expecting others to understand and get your perspective.

This Moon is seeking balance! It aspects both the current Mercury Retrograde and Sun in Libra, continuing the relationship theme of balancing individual needs with relationship needs. The next Lunar Eclipse, in March 2016, will be in the sign of Libra, directly opposite this one. This means that you get to see both sides of coin—relationship-wise—between now and Spring. And ultimately find … Read the rest
