Something else is going on. I feel a strong energy shift coming: I wish I could be clearer; what I'm hearing is "crunchy. " Lots to chew on, lots to do, and a strong positive angle. It's going to be a tough hike on a 40-degree angle, with sunshine at the top and lots of good energy to use. Get busy on clarifying your dream, and be willing to work very hard.

Clear as mud? Yeah, to me too.

Energy Alert

Saturday, January 24, 2009

A big wave of positive energy is available to us on the New Moon; this time, it's going to be especially powerful. Know that there is more good energy available to you than usually, and act accordingly. Surf it how you like:

Open your heart, and breathe it in.

Go dance outside in the darkness.

Take a long bath, and rejoice that you're made up of so much water.

Take it in, feel it in your cells; it brings a deep possibility for more happiness than you're used to.

The Moon turns late Sunday and ends on 12:14pm on Tuesday.

Tattoos, the beginning

Friday, January 23, 2009

Why am I so fascinated with tattoos? Slowly, over the course of the past twenty years, this ancient form of body modification has moved from the edge of American culture to the center. Many, many people have one or more; and a significant subset have multiples. So it's popular; and it's vivid. I can't stop looking at them.

I'm pain-averse, and the thought of that many needle punctures over a portion of my skin gives me the willies. I came close this summer, but decided against it. I am still so fascinated, however, that I may have to get one, just for research.

I don't have the qualifications to delineate the history of this permanent form of decoration. But I can say this: it is old in human culture, going back at least to ancient Egypt, over 4 thousand years ago.

An on-line acquaintance of mine pointed out that people who get tattoos are usually people who want to have attention paid to them. I think this is true, but I know at least one person who got one who is more attention-averse than anything.

It is about decorating the self; and it's about tribal bonding. It's a marker that a person belongs, whether to a subculture, or to a particular group, and sometimes to another person. Of course, the problem with the love tattoo is it's permanence. A famous example of this in contemporary celebrity culture is Johnny Depp, whose "Winona Forever" became obsolete after their relationship ended; the tattoo became "Wino Forever."

From an energetic perspective, it's very curious. People with tattoos can have issues with the area being tattooed; it's certain that it changes the flow of energy over and around the marking. The placement of multiples can create a conjunction that points directly to a chakra: one musician I'm familiar with has two at his heart, one on a wrist, and one on the underside of the upper arm. With his arms raised, these form a direct line to the heart. Another had a series up one arm: pointing to the throat. It may be unconscious, but it's not a coincidence.

For those of us who live in the Washington area, this excitement feels like it's breatheable. In my lungs, in my bubbling blood: the Inauguration is coming. Tuesday!! I will be there, dressed in many layers of clothes, representing myself (and all of you who want to tag along energetically), rejoicing in new possibilities, waving madly at the Jumbotron, bouncing up and down (not easy to do in hiking boots).

I'll be back posting regularly next week. I'll unveil the new design that last weekend of January. And I promise to post at least twice a week for the foreseeable future.

Until January 22nd, then: be well, be happy, be safe, and know that you are loved.

Magic Time

Sunday, January 11, 2009

Hello all,

This Full Moon is one of the most powerful of the year. From now until early Tuesday morning, it's Magic Time: you can manifest what is best for you with ease. Put yourself outdoors, or indoors next to a window. Observe the moon, and rejoice in her clear light. Bring into your heart the things (objects, ideas, situations) that would bring you the most joy. After you've breathed into the joy for a while (you know what works for you), release it upwards towards the moon. This, or something better, will manifest for you!

with love,


A private message: To the person who is communicating with me on the etheric: you are most welcome to continue. Try, also, communicating on the physical (email, letter, phone, in person); it will be easier on you and you will get more specific support.
