“Breath is the bridge which connects life to consciousness, which unites your body to your thoughts. Whenever your mind becomes scattered, use your breath as the means to take hold of your mind again.” Thich Nhat Hanh
Get out of your head.
Unwind your inner clock.
It is all about perception.
Be curious without wandering
into nebulous escape.
“In the dream life you don’t deliberately set out to dream about a house night after night; the dream itself insists you look at whatever is trying to come into visibility.” Jane Hirshfield
Be a shape shifter
in the zig-zag dance with life.
The slippery ground of
and awe-inspiring, wondrous amazement.
All of it.
All of it.
Pay attention, without over-analysis.
Avoid entanglement with diversions.
What is real
what is magic
might be the same.
Take nothing for granted.
invoke persistent gratitude.
“Light and shadow are opposite sides of the same coin. We can illuminate our paths or darken our way. It is a matter of choice.” Maya Angelou
Don’t be trapped by fear’s illusions.
Behind fear is wonderment,
Who or what to trust?
Integrity is your compass.
Seek the quiet
Gemini Full Moon
December 3, 2017 7:46 am PT
Neptune in Pisces squares this Full Moon, blurring boundaries between logic and belief. Gemini Moon keeps the air abuzz with ideas, chatter and gossip. Dazzled or scattered by options or distractions. Be aware of unconscious motivations. Engage imagination with intention or relax and intentionally disengage. Recognize the vulnerability within yourself and others.
Intuition, deep healing and renewal are emphasized. An awareness of the fragility of life. Sleepy, dreamy, musing. Reflect on the unseen. Life is not all it appears. Listen to the waves, the wind, the images and the songs that stir your soul.
Mercury retrograde coincides with the full moon, December 3 – 23. Mercury is the ruler of Gemini (this full moon) and is in Sagittarius (where the Sun is now, opposite Moon in Gemini). There is weighty tension in thoughts and conversation. Some may find it difficult to express themselves or are in positions of restraint. We are in a deep reconsideration of what is the truth. We’ll be hearing even more about “fake news”.
November 27: Mercury conjunct Saturn
December 3: Mercury retrograde at 29 degrees Sagittarius
December 6: Mercury conjunct Saturn
Time for serious decisions. Yet, as we can see, there is more than meets the eye. Can we be realistic without getting depressed? Bogged down with bureaucracy? Stalled negotiations? (On the national stage we have budget “negotiations”, nuclear war “no negotiation”, and the threat of losing our internet freedom – call your members of Congress now!) Be selective about where you direct your attention. Impatience goes nowhere. Focus, simplify. Firm your alignment with your core truths.

How may I soothe my nervous system while juggling the challenges of life at this time?
What are the judgements that hold me back from speaking my truth?
How may I tune in and trust my inner compass?
