In other words, we have to take the time to slow down and take notice of the natural world around us. Our hustle bustle, fast-paced, cyber-spaced lives bombard us with visible and invisible information, images and vibrations. Manmade, humanly created and generated electromagnetic fields surround us. Thoughts, words and deeds demand attention. Internal dialogues run rampant, repeat themes and hold us hostage to physical, social and professional models and ideals. Meanwhile, the Earth turns, seasons change, super novas explode and galaxies expand. Cosmic rays dance in space, starlight shimmers and planets revolve around their suns.

Sometimes, I find it hard to reduce myself to what I am, a bundled particle of mass and light, interconnected and interacting with a multi-plex of other bundled particles. Nothing and something, one and many, different, unique, miraculous and yet common, made of the same stuff as everything and everyone else. And there are also times when I forget that emotions are like the weather and that “this too shall pass.” When the wind is howling, blowing and crashing, it feels like it will always be blowing, howling and crashing. When rains thrash and turn into floods, it seems like the rain will never go away. When I am sad, hurt and depressed, or struggling with others’ pain, sorrow and loss, joy and happiness seem like a distant fairyland, a long-gone fantasy of love and laughter.

Autumn equinox is a day of changing electromagnetic light and force on planet Earth. Spring equinox marks the season of increasing light and external focus, while the autumnal equinox marks the season of growing darkness and inner development.

Magnificent red rock country, giant cottonwoods and the lazy Dolores River escorted us home. At dusk, in early darkness, just miles from the hacienda, the wind went wild. Rain pelted the windshield, bits and pieces of leaves and broken tumbleweeds came blasting through space. It was crazy, like witches on broomsticks and spirits in the night. The day before equinox, I could feel the change. And I know you can too.

sunsetleavesIt’s now autumn, the season of inner light. The time to pay attention to what’s going on inside. A time to listen to the body and nurture the soul. Watch the changing colors and horizons; take note of the rising and setting sun. A time to feel your heart. And remember, like the weather, that no feeling is final. Just keep going. Day by day, month-by-month, year-to-year, season to season. Blessings and peace…

Aries (Mar. 20-Apr.19) Once again, the waning Moon provides us with dark nights and starry skies, the perfect garden for planting seeds of intention and desire. And this week, take note of your wishes. Are you focusing on personal, selfish wants and needs or actually thinking and hoping for others? The Libra sun time is all about relationship. Practice giving and forgiving from the heart.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20) Autumn awards the Bull with the fortuitous opportunity to make yourself and your world a significantly better place, but it takes practice.

Good luck, do the work!

Gemini (May 21-June 21) Autumn and the Libra zodiac month harmonize with the intellectual, comical, communicative style of the Twins. It is uplifting, inspirational and even romantic. Surrender to your heartstrings and listen to the music of your soul. Somewhere deep inside, you will hear the sounds of silence and the mystical songs of spirit. Find the time to do it. Feel the magic.

Cancer (June 21-July 22) Late September and early October arrive with mystery and magic as autumn golds paint the land with light.

Self-care and self-nurturing are essential to good health. Do your best.

Leo (July 23-Aug.22) You may feel deeply domestic or concerned about issues on the home front as Mercury, Venus and Saturn hold court in your solar 4th house of personal security and environment. Take a good look at behavior patterns, default positions and childhood programming. Discuss your thoughts with those you trust. Take a short trip, explore your neighborhood.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep.22) As autumn begins, Virgins continue to work in literal and metaphorical gardens. We reap what we sow. The equation of action and consequence is never more poignant that it is today. You can see exactly how your thoughts, words and deed paint the canvas of your life. Thus said, embrace the moment, do the next right thing, Enjoy the masterpiece.

Libra (Sep. 23-Oct. 22) Congratulations on another revolution around the Sun. It’s time to celebrate life. Take a deep breath and look around you. We often forget that life is a miracle and we are miraculous. What are the chances of birth? By truly embracing the moment and living in the now, you can feel the movement of the stars and hear the music of the spheres. Enjoy the concert, bask in starlight.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) With Mercury, Venus and Saturn now transiting Scorpio, you may be feeling rather light and bright and shining, shining, shining. And yet, there is a strong, serious aspect to your perception of yourself and your life. The process of sorting, discarding, pruning and ending continues. It feels good to get rid of what is no longer useful or vital. Good work!

Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 20) The Libra zodiac month is one of social interaction and exchange for the Archer. Seek out friends, groups and fellowships that support your hopes and dreams. Camaraderie is a theme now and there are many people, places and things in this world that encourage and enhance positive, progressive actions and ideas. Connect with these entities and ride the tide.

Capricorn (Dec. 21-Jan. 19) Career concerns, personal and professional goals take center stage as the Sun enters your solar 10th house of achievement. You may find great pleasure in work and accomplishment this month as the cosmos supports intellectual and creative efforts. Look for muses, seek out camaraderie. Others are willing to help and assist you. Ask you shall receive.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) A rather light and lovely energy uplifts and encourages accomplishment this week and month. Planets align to support and guide you toward the manifestation of your dreams. The challenge lies in the journey. Taking the high road is always the best strategy, but even that route has obstacles and dilemmas. The good news is that you can see the big picture.


Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20) A good dose of water sign planets always feels good for aquarium loving fish, and this week you’re in luck as Mercury, Venus and Saturn in Scorpio ignite inspiration and uplift your spirit.

Travel is a great way to see the forest for the trees. Get out and explore your world.
