Get ready for some rare and evolutionary events coming soon that will inspire you to create a more expansive vision of life on Earth! Within the next Mercury retrograde cycle, the August/September eclipse window and rare planetary alignments, comes an extraordinary gathering of four of Hawaii’s most talented intuitives on the very day of the final of three exact Saturn – Neptune squares.
Most of my shares this year have been channeled writings from the guidance realm; however, the prevailing energies are so compelling that I’d like to share them with you.
What are those “triangles” in the sky?
If you’ve been out star-gazing and wondering about the grouping of planets in the sky after sunset, you have been enjoying a rare alignment of stars and planets: Saturn, Mars and the star Antares in the southwestern sky, and Jupiter, Venus and Mercury in the west just after sunset. In fact, one triangle will have shifted to a “straight line” as the Saturn-Mars conjunction at 9° Sagittarius 53' takes place August 23-24, 2016, and Venus-Mercury-Jupiter conjunctions August 22-28, 2016. (Venus conjunct Jupiter at 27° Virgo 22' on August 26.)
This is just the most visible of the interplay of planetary forces “above” us that reflect the evolutionary forces at play “below” on Earth. Astrologers who have researched this phenomenon have said that you would have to go back to 750AD and into the future to 2200 AD to find a similar gathering of planets.
Simply put, these groupings of planets could amplify feelings of tension, anger or frustration. Should you experience this, my guidance would be the same I give to myself: prana breathe, meditate, go into your heart and feel yourself surrounded in love. In your interactions with others, smile and brighten the world a little by being compassionate with those around you. It’s also an ideal time to receive a Signature Cell Healing® session—or whatever type of energetic healing you prefer!
Here is a link to wonderful article about the current planetary energies from my teacher, Daniel Giamario of the Shamanic Astrology Mystery School.
Mercury Retrograde: Here we go again!
Yes, it’s time again! On August 30, 2016 the planet Mercury stations retrograde as it does 3-4 times each year. This time, Mercury, the planet representing communications, perceptions and how we process information goes retrograde in the Earth sign of Virgo. (Where is this happening on your chart?) As this planetary energy of the trickster and shape-shifter moves “backward” from our perspective on Earth, it’s time to shift to a more right-brained state of awareness, time to trust and follow your intuition.

Midst in the Eclipse Window
Then, August 31/ September 1 there will be a New Moon Annular solar eclipse also in Virgo. Eclipses open windows of accelerated energy to amplify your intentions. The annular eclipse is often called a “ring of fire” eclipse, this eclipse as the Moon is further away in its orbit and not quite close enough to Earth to completely cover the Sun. It will be visible in parts of Africa and Madagascar, yet can be felt and celebrated wherever you may be in the world. We will have an opportunity to release old stuck energy and to create new beginnings in love in the portal energy of the eclipse.

Experience Wisdom and Insights from the Unseen World
For all my friends in Honolulu—or those who’d like to be here!—on Saturday, September 10, 2016, I will be taking part in a special gathering of healers, channels and spiritualists in Honolulu. “Talking Story with the Other Side – Wisdom and Guidance from the Unseen World” is dedicated to guiding, uplifting and supporting every aspect of your life including health, soul journey, relationships, finance and more. Don't miss this rare opportunity to receive personalized guidance and insights to empower your journey!
What the heck is a Saturn – Neptune square?
On the day of our gathering in Honolulu, September 10, 2016, the world will also experience the final of three exact alignments of Saturn square Neptune (also November 26, 2015 and June 17, 2016). Operating in two very diverse worlds, Saturn represents structure, limitations and practicality and is concerned with how we navigate the third-dimensional, mundane world. Neptune operates from a celestial-world perspective and represents spirituality, the field of all possibilities and the limitlessness and oneness of all light. Saturn loves the facts; Neptune loves the spiritual.
To understand the interplay of these two powerful planetary energies, imagine an artist standing before a blank canvas with the inspiration in her heart to create an expressive work of art. Until she chooses the mode or framework of expression—water colors, oils, etc.—and picks up her brushes and begins to paint, the vision (Neptune) cannot become manifest in our third-dimensional world (Saturn). This is the meeting of Saturn and Neptune and depending on the strength of one or the other or the energy of the times—there will be balance, tension or a leaning toward one or the other.
The square or when planets are in a 90-degree aspect is often referred to as "crisis in action." Though not necessarily a "bad" thing, crisis is often the energy that we need to move our journeys forward. In this case, the question we can ask is how can our visions, dreams and inspiration be channeled into a practical form or structured reality? The key may be to allow ourselves to be more free-flowing and to discover new ways, new forms to manifest our dreams and desires.
In Humble Gratitude
I’m grateful to the energies of the Guidance Realm—especially Mother Ulura of the Goddess Weave—who have been channeling the guidance in shares that support us though the shifting times we find ourselves in now!
