At one of our Lemurian Wisdom Circle gatherings recently, many in the circle were concerned about the volatile stock markets, hurricanes coming towards us in Hawaii and ominous Earth changes. They had heard that in things were going to get even more chaotic and that there were many astrological omens of great changes and other apocalyptic signs--and what was my take on all that?        [Photo:]

Celebrating the Cycles

Yes, it is true that there are profound astrological energies this coming month, yet as those of you who have had Lemurian Astrology readings with me will know, I believe that we have planned out our journeys and placed it in our blueprints prior to incarnating. So, the movements of the planets and the cycles of our lives are something to celebrate; they assist us in our evolutionary journeys of healing--completing one level after the next, and we are ultimately where we need to be. What we choose to focus on in our lives is a choice. Are we looking for chaos, or are we choosing to see life unfolding in a way that is for our highest good?

Recently, I had a Lemurian Astrology reading client who was in a cycle which we all go through when we are around 36 – 38 years old called “Pluto Square Pluto.” Pluto is the planet representing transformation, death and rebirth and facing our deepest fears. In this cycle, which lasts 2 ½ to 3 years, the transiting Pluto (in the sky now) moves into a 90-degree aspect, or a “square,” to where Pluto was when we were born. The square aspect is known as “crisis in action,” and the Pluto-square-Pluto creates opportunities for surrender, letting go of old patterns and transformation—essentially completions and new beginnings!

She didn’t feel that anything was going the way that she wanted it to, no matter how hard she tried. She was exasperated and at her wit’s end.

Suddenly, my mind was catapulted back to the time when I was in this same Pluto-square-Pluto cycle about 20 years ago. It was a time of huge transition and upheaval in my life. I had just moved back to Lemuria with my husband Daniel after living and working in Europe for 9 years. Both of us were trying to establish new careers here and to find a place we could call home. We must have moved six times during that Pluto cycle until we finally found the home that we have now.

I had been an English teacher for nearly 20 years in Hawaii and in Switzerland, and I felt it was what I should continue to do, yet I was encountering frustrating experiences trying to find a teaching position that I liked and even went through all the motions to open my own language school but just couldn’t seem to make a go of it. Had we made the right move? I felt like nothing seemed to fit any more.

Out of the blue, it seemed, a new path of spirituality opened for me that began to draw me in. It began with a sore shoulder that I had and couldn’t get relief, so I began investigating, learning and practicing alternative healing modalities. I felt myself and the world around me being completely transformed by new ways of thinking and began seeing myself and my life around me in completely new ways.

Eventually, this path led me to the master healer, Kahu Fred Sterling and the modality he founded called Signature Cell Healing. I became a practitioner/trainer and for many years thereafter, I managed a spiritual book publishing company and coordinated international healing workshop events. It wouldn’t have occurred to me to do something like that prior to that Pluto cycle. It required me to take some huge “leaps of faith” and to continue to focus on a positive outcome for the completion of that transformation to occur.

As we gathered in the Lemurian Wisdom Circle that night, there was rain, thunder and lightning outside as a huge hurricane was nearing our islands. People outside of our gathering were preparing for whatever the storm would bring. In the circle, we joined in a meditation and saw our beloved Hawaiian islands--the mountaintops of ancient Lemuria--glowing in a golden light of love, surrounded in peace, calm and beauty. Then I asked them to see that golden light emanating out from our islands. We did not try to change the path of the storm, instead we focused on that loving light surrounding our beloved islands. The storm, which was called Kilo, meaning astrologer, star gazer, or reader of omens in the Hawaiian language, eventually completed her journey in the vicinity of our islands and continued west on her own path. 


I send you aloha from my heart and pray you enjoy the journey of consciously creating a beautiful experience of life on Earth!

In love and Lemurian blessings,
