Celebrating the Fruits of Summer 2009
Today is the last full day of summer. The Sun is about to enter the final degree of Virgo. Mercury is retrograde and the Moon is, once again, waxing. Beginnings and endings coalesce and caress the senses. Every open door we enter marks the end of that which came before.
I love summer. I have always loved it and after living for a time in Hawaii, know that one season is plenty for me. Some more summer, please. I was born in late spring. The vibrancy of color in bloom on green hillsides, fresh warm breezes and extra-long days–sun high and bright in the clear blue sky–are etched upon my soul.
My summer has been full of inspiring changes, unexpected pleasures, delightful new companions and a new-found passion for, of all things, hooping. Remember the hula hoop from the 50s and 60s? Well, it’s back and this time it is for grown-ups. We call it Hoop Dance and it has opened my world in remarkable ways in just a few short weeks.
All of this new energy and inspiration has worked to open my mind to fresh perspectives and potentials, as well. I am rethinking the subjects on which I wish to write and the kinds of work I do with clients. I have called myself an Intuitive Astrologer for the past dozen or so years, now. Today, that title feels limiting. While I still find benefit in referring to the astrology chart, the astrology I am interested in practicing today is what I am calling the ‘new astrology of potential’. The world really has changed. This is a new day. There are potentials and possibilities available to each of us that did not previously exist.
As my work has evolved over the years I have come to understand that one of the things I do when working with clients is to channel the wisdom of their Expanded Consciousness. I can no longer count the number of times a client has remarked on how fascinating it is to them that I used ‘that word’ or brought up ‘that subject’, as it is something they have been thinking about or feeling for some time. They light up when they recognize the voice of their intuition coming through me. I cannot tell them anything they don’t already know, on some level.
Today my work is evolving to that of an Intuitive Advisor and Consciousness Teacher. I love to remind people of their own potential and assist them in recognizing their own empowering truth.
I am off for a run in the sun on this beautiful day. Thank you for joining in my celebration of the expansiveness of this remarkable season.
