Change the World with Love – Two Poems

Please take the time to read the two poems below: “If you want to change the world…. love a woman” and “If you want to change the world……love a man” which I have found truly moving and I hope you do, too!

If you want to change the world… love a woman-really love her.
Find the one who calls to your soul, who doesn’t make sense.
Throw away your check list and put your ear to her heart and listen.
Hear the names, the prayers, the songs of every living thing-
every winged one, every furry and scaled one,
every underground and underwater one, every green and flowering one,
every not yet born and dying one…
Hear their melancholy praises back to the One who gave them life.
If you haven’t heard your own name yet, you haven’t listened long enough.
If your eyes aren’t filled with tears, if you aren’t bowing at her feet,
you haven’t ever grieved Continue reading

What Does Kaypacha Mean?

animal representation of Kaypacha is cougarI’ve gotten a few inquires as to this new name, Kaypacha, so I’ll put it out there that I received it from Mother Giamvati down at Matri Sadan in Brazil. It came through her in the middle of an ayahuasca sacred ceremony, and I feel it is part of a re-birth experience that I went through. She told me that it meant “master of the world of the senses.” It later came to light through my chart reading that I had much worldly power in previous lives and “caved in” a bit to the sensuous pleasures so I have come back again to master them! No small task ha ha! Below is a a bit more about it… It is Inca in origin and a calling for me to master a greater part of myself/life this incarnation. Aloha!

Kaypacha: (n) (1) This world. (2) The current age; present era. (3) The world of material consciousness. (4) The middle world, filled with both heavy and refined living energies, typically symbolized by the puma; this physical world.  Our world is a manifestation of another reality that exists in the Cosmos. This is the place where we remember who we are. (See, taripay pacha.) The Kaypacha is interconnected with the different worlds of vibration and energy. We are here to experience, not to judge. This is the world of the puma. Different realities exist within this middle world of experience. In the highlands of Ecuador, the Kaypacha and Ukhupacha are regarded as mirror images.

In Inca mythology Kay Pacha is defined as the underworld where humans were developing in their lives.

The world consists of four planes appeared, Hakaq Pacha (the world beyond), Hanan Pacha (the upper world), Kay Pacha (the world here) and Uku Pacha or the lower world of the dead and also the unborn.

In language Quechua , pacha means both, time and space.

Animal Representation Kay Pacha was represented by a cougar.


Kay pacha, is the present time, it generates the immediate past and the immediate future

A Shamanic View of the Venus Synodic Cycle

Indigenous people throughout time have actively participated through ritual and ceremony with the natural rhythms and cycles of nature. The purpose behind this participation is quite simply that the spirits like to be acknowledged and appreciated by humankind! As a closer bond between incarnated souls and spiritual deities is strengthened, the two realities further support and contribute to the unfolding of one another. Shamanic Astrology seeks to connect the individual to the rhythms, or dance of the night sky, through observation, ceremony, and ?deep listening?. Watching and ?listening? to the journey of Venus (and her lover Mars) as she travels through the eastern morning sky, descends, and rises in the west, is one means through which we can make a ?cosmic connection? to the eternal feminine force of nature.

While there are many correlations drawn between astronomical phenomena and ancient mythological gods and goddesses, there is no better description of a planet?s journey than the story of Inanna, the Sumerian goddess of fertility, love, and war (yes, love and war!) to Venus. In the story, Inanna initially a brave and brash Continue reading

A New Look at the Sun

All manifest creation, all life as we know it, can be viewed as the Creator or Source realizing Itself.  The Source, or ?All That Is?, at some point polarized Itself from total Unity into diversity to experience Itself; hence creation.  With this polarization all three dimensional duality came into existence.  The root, or basis of duality, then, is the Creator/creation, the Void/manifested life, Spirit/matter, Love/fear ? the former existing eternally and the latter temporally.

When we, as Creator, Spirit, or Love, incarnate into physical form we leave the realm of unity to experience ourselves through duality.  Our lives become a mirror through which we view our own creation.  In so doing, we take on the reality of three dimensional consciousness which includes the polarity of fear ? that which we are not ? the consciousness of separation.

The Sun in the astrological birth chart can be seen as the light, the energy, or the fuel that powers the entire chart (the reality we have created).  In one sense it is the transmitter of Divine intelligence, which not only powers, but also orders our experience of ourselves and the world around us.  The zodiacal sign in which the sun is located at the time of Continue reading

Message From the Moon’s Eclipse

Life is a song

That plays through our hearts

Forever beating, forever bleeding

The blood that runs

Through our veins

Carries the tune through the pouring rain


The stillness that lies within

Sees all that is buried, and when


When you are ready

Dusty, dirty, and weary

You let your self go

And you sail away

On new found wings

To another day


For you are a string

Played upon by spring

The harmony of Continue reading

The Best Things to Do in Times of Accelerated Change

accelerated change, quickeningDuring these times of accelerated change the question occupying most people’s minds when they come for a reading is what’s the best thing to do?  It is a question that can go both ways: one is how can I best handle what is coming at me, and the other is how can I best move forward on my soul’s path of evolution. Based upon the current and future planetary positions between now and 2012 (and beyond) I will address these questions on the levels of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.


On the physical level these times call primarily for attention, discrimination, simplification, and responsibility. With Saturn, and Pluto moving through the earth signs of Virgo and Capricorn there is a big focus on grounding or manifesting our ideals in very real and concrete ways. The time for idle chit-chat, speculation and living in the realm of ideas (ideals) is over and will not cut it anymore.

1. On the most personal level this means it’s time to get your physical body together. It is time to eat, exercise, work, and rest as you inwardly know you should. That means to stop Continue reading

The Healing Nature of Astrology

Just as human consciousness and therefore human nature, are evolving as we become more aware of ourselves and creation, so to is the nature of our sciences and arts, including astrology. Let’s face it, the art/science of astrology is as old and perhaps older than the study of mathematics itself, as it deals with observing natural phenomena (in this case celestial) and relating it to life events independent of actual chart calculations. But it is the point and purpose driving this study that has changed and is changing with the development of our species.
Originally, astrology assisted simple survival skills and was used to determine when to plant and harvest food etc. From simple survival, it was further used to Continue reading
